Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your home and family sector, dear Aries, and you’re in a more introspective phase. Emotions tend to settle, or you crave a steadier pace, especially if you find a project or cause that excites you. The likelihood of this happening is quite excellent today with Mercury and Vesta heading into alignment and increasing your mental focus. Your interest in your projects, learning, and communications increases, and you can become quite pleasantly absorbed in making headway. People could be taking you more seriously and seeking you out for advice and answers. Plans are easy to map out, and you feel a bit more organized. There can also be a feeling of general rapport with the people closest to you or a sense that you’re on top of your domestic chores, boosting your confidence.
TaurusThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your busy, curious, and connected solar third house, dear Taurus, keeping you on your toes. You’re putting out mental feelers, picking up tips and ideas. Even so, you’re also in a good place for focus and concentration if something grabs your interest. Your mind is quite sharp now, and you may want to take advantage by doing something productive. You can pour a lot of energy into a money-making idea or a special project. Discipline is easier to harness than usual as the day advances, and you can experience a strong desire to get money matters, personal belongings, or business on track. You’ll want to apply yourself to building a talent or business, and it’s satisfying! As well, a friend might provide you with valuable feedback.
GeminiThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your resources sector, dear Gemini. You’re in great shape for applying your intuition in successful ways to a pet project, business venture, or financial planning and thinking. This Moon transit is useful for getting established and testing the waters. Also today, your ruler, Mercury, heads into alignment with Vesta, pulling your attention to those things that matter most to you. It’s a good time to work a little harder as you feel a stronger sense of commitment and purpose. Making detailed plans or pouring extra attention and energy into an endeavor can be most satisfying now. Reserving time for yourself or your personal projects and initiatives makes sense. You have an innate desire to build something solid for yourself, and you should go with this constructive feeling. Apply your tremendous mental energy to something useful. Look more closely at your current projects, talents, and resources, and aim to nurture and develop these things.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Cancer, and you’re more noticeable and interactive than usual. Still, it’s an excellent time for independent or behind-the-scenes work today as Mercury and Vesta align in your privacy sector. This transit boosts mental concentration and focus. Even if the Moon transit wants you to circulate and connect more than usual, take some time to regroup and recoup your mental energy, and you’ll do particularly well for yourself. It can be an important time for a private conversation with someone you trust. You might instead engage in a conversation with someone about the past, and this can be healing. Giving more thought to an issue that requires some wrapping up or the tying of loose ends can be satisfying and useful.
LeoYou might find it natural to commit to a goal, cause, or venture today, dear Leo, and narrowing your focus to important details can be useful now. Focusing on cherished dreams or hopes, long-term happiness goals, friends, or networking can be soothing. You’re in a strong position to observe and learn about your own motivations and those of others. Taking a step back from the world a little with the Moon in your privacy sector all day is appropriate. It’s time for some reflection and rest. This is a day for catching your breath, and you may need a little more time to yourself than usual. A lot is going on behind the scenes, and you may be glowing with excitement. You seem to be more productive when you remove yourself from the hub of activity right now.

In fact, with a goal in mind, you can be especially focused and ambitious. It can be a perfect time for making long-term plans and lists, organizing, leading, and managing. You’re able to tune out distractions for great results. It may very well feel soothing or healing to get things in order. This transit increases your commitment to a responsibility, your performance, or a long-term goal. You might be communicating with more conviction or authority. You feel the need to gently challenge yourself to move into unexplored territory.
