Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
With Mars and Uranus forming a harmonious aspect today, dear Aries, you may be discovering new ways to improve your practical affairs, and you’re exceptionally resourceful with your time, energy, talents, money, and resources. You can be keen on making improvements and progress. New ways of interacting with loved ones can yield surprisingly good results now. Organization around the home or in your work environment can help move things along, although new approaches can be most beneficial with Uranus involved. The need to take action or to “step in” can be intense. Changes made on the inside–in your emotional world– can be just as strong a focus with Mars in your solar fourth house stirring things up. The Moon at the top of your solar chart all day, however, suggests some need to pull out of yourself and focus on career or responsibilities.
You want action, and you do everything with style today, dear Taurus, with Mars and Uranus forming a harmonious aspect. This can be a day of inspiration, especially regarding new ventures related to communications, ideas, learning, and teaching or guiding. You’re enthusiastic and likely to put special energy, effort, and time into learning endeavors, projects, personal interests, and career. You can be particularly motivated to challenge yourself mentally. Your pioneering and progressive ideas are likely to be winners, but it’s also a good time for getting rid of an inhibition related to expressing yourself. The Moon in your spirit sector all day helps on this front–you’re looking ahead.
You’re in excellent shape for putting a project that’s been limiting you or a bad habit behind you, dear Gemini. You’re feeling emotionally equipped to not only accept but embrace change and progress courtesy of a Mars-Uranus aspect. Money matters, special care of personal possessions or valuables, and ownership issues can be in focus and good favor now. Unique and fresh approaches to business or money management emerge, or you learn something new about the past that helps you move forward. The best thing you can do for yourself now is to aim to detach from or let go of a problem that has been frustrating you. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and this can encourage you to push the limits just a little so that you can get closer to someone or a project.
With Mars in your sign connecting harmoniously with Uranus today, dear Cancer, making friends, expanding your group, or enhancing relationships with associates can be in order.

The Moon in your partnership sector all day boosts your desire for company or companionship.
With Mars in your solar twelfth house connecting with Uranus today, dear Leo, you’re in great shape for activities behind the scenes or for putting an end to a problem area.

You’re able to detach yourself from a matter just enough to handle it quickly and move forward. There can be a sudden need to put a long-standing problem behind you or deal with a secret that has been weighing you down. The motivation to free yourself is palpable now, so take advantage!

Romantic opportunities or meeting friends can be in focus, and they’re more likely to happen through extra-curricular activities. If you’re teaching, guiding, or otherwise influencing and inspiring others, your enthusiastic presentation invites people to follow your lead, making it a particularly excellent time for networking activities, promotion, or otherwise spreading the word. Today is strong for feeling engaged and empowered.
The desire to pioneer or innovate is active today, dear Libra, and you may enjoy coming up with new ventures or methods to improve what you already have going.

Someone might propose a fun adventure for you or encourage your creative side.
