Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile the Moon’s move into your creativity sector is a playful influence, dear Aries, there is a tendency to dwell on problem areas rather than release them constructively this morning. As the day advances, it’s easier to find outlets for expressing yourself. Watch for digging in your heels if faced with the possibility that things are not going your way. The better solution for your peace of mind may be to move on and pursue something else. Later today, you tend to think in terms of what’s truly best for you. It’s a good time for seeking out challenges, getting organized, pursuing mental interests, and working on unfinished projects. You’re learning that as you improve your communications with others, your life boosts up in subtle ways.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus. It’s a time to reconnect with yourself and your inner needs, as well as to feed your need to belong. Frustrations you’ve accumulated can emerge this morning if you’ve been keeping too much to yourself. It can be all too easy to trigger frustrations, but this also allows you to see what needs purging. You’re particularly sensitive to skittishness or superficiality in others right now. While it’s a good time for discovering resources you never knew you had, tensions are likely if you try to push something that isn’t meant to be. You’ve been learning what you value these days, and discovering some talents in the process. Information you come across today might point you in this direction. If it’s finance-related, it can also be beneficial.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini, and you’re more curious about what’s happening around you. Energy is such that backing off and detaching yourself a little from issues this morning can improve things. A Mars-Pluto aspect suggests that you should probably go gently and plan strategies rather than push matters. Try to be as flexible as possible and adapt to changes around you. This is something you do naturally, but there can be some tendency to cling to certain methods or ideas with this transit. Watch for overthinking or saying a little too much. It’s best to take a little extra time with your words or to understand your needs better before communicating. As the day advances, it’s easier to focus on what you can improve and change. Less pressured and more detached energy is with you.
CancerThe Moon moves into your solar second house for a couple of days, dear Cancer, turning your emotional attention to building and developing. It’s a fine time of the lunar month for tapping into your patience and enjoying a steadier pace. In the first half of today, try to avoid fixating on certain issues that haven’t fully developed. Attempting to force a matter will only lead to frustration. If negative thinking or fears seem to be taking over, do your best to pull yourself out of a vicious circle. Be on the lookout for a suspicious or controlling approach, or people adopting this manner with you. A Mars-Pluto aspect active now can seem to pull out compulsive behavior or destructive habits. As the day advances, focusing on the areas of your life that you can improve comes more naturally, and it’s far more constructive. This is a time for recognizing the need to resolve problem areas so that you can clear a path for confidently going forward.
LeoIn the first half of the day, dear Leo, you can be quite sensitive to signs of imbalance of power in your relationships, which could lead to frustration or resentful feelings. Or, you can be a little tense, particularly if you feel that you’re in a rut or a tough place. Try to rise above this and let the ideas flow. As the day advances, you’re likely to thoroughly enjoy wrapping your head around a problem and working things through. It’s a time for attempting to improve your social life or build a network or special friendship through your communications and gestures. You are also better able to put faith in your gut feelings and make decisions that are much more straightforward. The Moon moves into your sign today, and you crave a stronger connection with the world around you.
VirgoThere can be an intensity to your nature or someone close to you in the first half of today, dear Virgo. While this can lead to exciting times, you may be clashing in your focus just for now. Nobody feels like bending at the moment! There may be irritating issues surrounding mobility or communications now. However, the day’s energies become more constructive as it progresses. A conversation or news can help you clarify your goals or take on more responsibility and feel better for it. Something now reminds you to set solid goals and to meet your obligations. The Moon moves into the sign just behind yours for a couple of days, and this suggests you may need additional rest, relaxation, and reflection. Winding down makes sense at this point in the Moon’s cycle.
LibraToday’s energies are good for recognizing areas that could be improved, dear Libra. In the first half of the day, watch for power games played in close relationships, particularly one-on-one and family connections. The tension tends to come from insecurities, and these are revealed now. Keep it cool and real, so you can turn things around and get results. As the day advances, a strong desire to take part in activities that break your usual routine can figure strongly. It’s a good time for connecting with information that inspires you along these lines even further. Your thoughts are especially progressive and forward-looking, and your networks can deliver interesting news or ideas. You can experience an increased ability to focus as you gain interest in what you’re doing.
ScorpioYou’re in good shape for enjoying studies or interests and sharing your thoughts today, dear Scorpio. However, in the first half of the day, interactions with others can be a little tricky. There can be stubbornness and a tendency to lock horns. Take a break from tense and demanding situations if you can, and consider that our perceptions may be a little distorted just for now. As the day advances, you might come across information that helps you envision your next step with an intimate relationship or financial situation. You are more aware of the things that you can bring to the world with the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart, and there is responsible and accountable energy with you.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your spirit sector for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, and your curiosity is stronger than usual. Aspects in the first half of today are a little tense, however, although they present only small hurdles to clear. There can be some tension revolving around money or family matters, especially if frustrations have been building. However, as the day advances, you’re in a great position to sort through problems and to be far more productive. You can feel particularly motivated to do something about problem areas in your relationships, or you may be supporting a partner’s accomplishments. You are becoming increasingly aware of what you want and what you don’t want in close relationships, which will be especially beneficial to you going forward since many relationship problems result from a lack of self-knowledge.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, and you’re inclined to seek a little extra something with your activities. Power plays can be in force in the first half of the day, but they may not be distinct, or you could have mixed feelings towards someone that you need to sort out. You may not feel valued for all you do, which can lead to some resentment or a revision of your plans. While tensions are entirely possible early today, as the day advances, you’re in a great position to make plans and get organized. You’re in excellent shape for improving your skills set and finding ways to be of help and service to others. You might connect with information that helps you advance your work or health pursuits.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your partnership sector today, dear Aquarius, and you can be feeling the need for feedback and more interaction than usual. With Mars and Pluto in minor challenging aspect influencing the first half of the day, it’s a little too easy for situations to move beyond your limits. You may not see the direct route to satisfying your needs or asserting yourself. If people don’t feel they’re in control, they may be acting out. It’s best to avoid power games now. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to want to resolve problems or rise above them. You also tend to do some critical conversing or thinking about things very close to your heart. Developing a mental interest or a connection through conversation can figure strongly now.
PiscesThe Moon’s move into your work and health sector today turns your attention to improving your daily affairs, health, and habits, dear Pisces. In the first half of the day, it may be a little too easy to trigger frustration, which can be true of you as well as others. Mars, currently transiting your sign, is forming a minor tense aspect with Pluto, and it can be too easy to dwell on something someone said or did. Ideally, tensions turn into motivators to get going on a matter. You have the tools to fix problems, and the trick is to work on a fix rather than spend too much time on the frustration part. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to focus on making improvements. There can be news about a personal matter that helps you heal.
