Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury begins an extended transit of your solar fourth house, dear Aries. During this cycle that runs until August 4th, you can be more focused on personal matters, especially family, home, and domestic issues. More than usual, you enjoy discussions and stories about the past or family. You are more rational and objective when it comes to the relationships with those close to you, making it a good time to open up discussions. Life is busy and active, at least on a mental level, in your personal environment. There can be more learning or working done at home or with family, for example. It’s a great time to organize your home and draw long-term plans for getting yourself on solid footing. There can be times during this cycle when you don’t feel well-understood since your ruler, Mars, is also in a hidden area of your solar chart until later June. However, it’s a good time for assessing prospects and paying your personal life some due attention.
TaurusMercury heads into your solar third house, dear Taurus, and will influence this area of your solar chart until August 4th. Mercury is spending more time than usual here than usual, suggesting much to learn ahead. It can be more challenging to focus or concentrate during this cycle. Still, it’s a good period for tackling a variety of subjects and putting your feelers out for new ideas or information. As well, learning, talking, writing, or studying can be good ways to handle stress. This transit tends to spark your curiosity and motivate you to reach out, make connections, or dabble with new interests. It can be a time of more than the usual reading, writing, or studying. There can also be a lot of activity and many distractions in your daily affairs at this time. This is the time to diversify your interests. You can feel a sense of accomplishment or hopefulness in your personal life today. The Moon is in your home and family sector all day, suggesting the need to enjoy time alone or with familiar people and to rest up.
GeminiMercury begins an extended transit of your solar second house today, dear Gemini. You’re likely to focus more closely on your practical affairs during this period that lasts until August 4th. You are more rational in your approach to spending, saving, and making money. This is a strong period for analyzing business, money, and practical affairs. At times, you might fret over your finances. For the most, however, you’re focusing on building the structures in your life. It’s certainly a good time for bringing new ideas, organization, and objectivity to your practical affairs, including your finances, but it’s also a strong period for developing your skills and talents, taking special care of your valuables, and acquiring new things that make your life a little easier or more comfortable. It’s a good time to see what you need and want more clearly. Today, there is a pleasant focus on learning and sharing. People are especially attracted to your mind.
CancerMercury enters your sign today, dear Cancer, and until August 4th, you’re making more executive decisions. You’re more willing to speak your mind, and talk about yourself or your personal plans. It’s a time of year when you can most easily use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself. In recent weeks, you may have had less opportunity or desire to speak about yourself or your plans. Now, you’re more independent and mentally connected. You have a stronger impact than usual when you communicate. Today, you have more patience to play with, and you may be drawing upon hunches and intuition to forward business and money-related ideas. Good instincts might lead to making a solid purchase or coming across a nice find. You’re more likely to seek out and find the resources to solve recent dilemmas and problems.
LeoMercury enters your solar twelfth house today, dear Leo, and will stay in this area of your solar chart for longer than usual: until August 4th. You’re focusing on private matters and past issues during this cycle, far more than usual. You can be searching for meaning in hidden places and examining the past for answers. It’s a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation, but don’t let issues that have outgrown their worth in your life drag you down. Examining the past to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don’t waste your energy on guilt. You may take more time to make conclusions and decisions during this period. You are more impressionable, but you’re also observing more layers to situations. Discretion may benefit you now. Today is good for focusing on any emotional needs you’ve recently neglected or brushed to the side. You do well with a cause and a plan.
VirgoMercury enters your social sector today, dear Virgo, and will influence this house of your solar chart until August 4th. It’s an extended stay, and it’s good for communicating. Friends and networking can be learning experiences in the coming months. Your ideas are especially progressive and unconventional, as you are questioning the rules you typically live by and entertaining new ideas. It’s a time of dreaming up new possibilities and new possible solutions to problems. Social interactions can be a little more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle. You’re giving more thought to personal happiness, perhaps thinking about, or considering reconnecting with, an old friend, or considering clubs or groups that could make your life more interesting. You seek or attract people who stimulate your mind, and people tend to be drawn to you for the same reasons. Today, the Moon continues its transit of your solar twelfth house, and there can be special attention to the past and what you may have left unfinished or unresolved. It’s a time for rebuilding energy on an emotional level.
LibraMercury begins its transit of your goals and reputation sector today, dear Libra, where it will stay until August 4th. You might seek information and knowledge to enhance your social or career prospects during this cycle. Or, you may be giving a lot more thought to your career or life path goals. It’s a powerful time for coming up with strategies in your professional life, for career planning, or thinking in more concrete, ambitious, and practical terms. Watch for doing so much multi-tasking that it takes you away from what is truly important. It’s a time for thinking things through more often, and for communicating with more awareness of how you’re coming across. There could be more public or professional attention to your ideas. The Moon continues its transit of your solar eleventh house today, however, and for now, you’ll do best in situations that allow you to escape the daily grind. There can be an advantage gained through studies or news.
ScorpioMercury begins transiting your solar ninth house today, dear Scorpio, and will stick around there until August 8th. Transits of Mercury point to current areas of interest, and during this period, you’re more concerned with the bigger picture than the details. Educational, extracurricular, or philosophical subjects might hold more appeal. You are communicating with more persuasiveness, enthusiasm, and optimism during this cycle. The planet of communication will spend more time than usual in this sector of your chart this year due to a retrograde next month. You may be less interested in mundane or routine matters during this cycle, preferring to do overview thinking and goal-setting. Ideas and words tend to flow smoothly now, and you’re looking to expand your knowledge and mental experience. Today, however, thoughtful planning is highly favored. There can be an easy rapport with someone close to you who is supportive of your goals and desires.
SagittariusMercury begins its transit of your solar eighth house, dear Sagittarius, where it will stay until August 4th. You are likely to take a stronger interest in all that lies below the surface during this extended stay. Mystery and intrigue appeal to you, and you might enjoy uncovering information and analyzing motives. Thinking about shared resources and finances, or negotiations involving them could also figure now. Financial strategy and planning can be especially successful now. It’s a great time to figure things out, think things through, or pick up details that you might otherwise miss. You are more likely to devise strategies and plans instead of taking your usual direct route to things. Small talk doesn’t appeal, while intimate, deep, and profound material does. You are not as concerned with being heard and understood during this cycle as much as you are interested in understanding the workings of people and situations around you at a deeper level. As a result, you could have some exciting and unusual conversations. The Moon in your adventure sector today stimulates enthusiasm and draws you to new or out of the ordinary activities.
CapricornMercury moves into your solar seventh house for an extended stay, dear Capricorn. Until August 4th, you attract more conversation or discussion into your life. Exchanging ideas and feedback are bigger themes in your relationships. You might seek or naturally attract interesting people who stimulate your curiosity and mental abilities. Or, others tend to jumpstart your own thinking processes more frequently. You might often turn to trusted friends or a partner for advice, or at least comment, so that you can come to your own decisions. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate with others, or your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue. Still, with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, contemplation and observation are favored over direct action. You might choose to lay low now. You can make significant headway with a health, work, or financial goal. Complex problems and mysteries draw you in again today.
AquariusMercury moves into your solar sixth house today, dear Aquarius, where it will stay until August 4th. It can be a very productive transit when list-making, organizing, and analyzing are satisfying and helpful. Positively use this energy by organizing the important systems in your life, one step at a time. It’s better not to overwhelm yourself with tasks. It’s a strong cycle for activities that help you get your life (or your mind) more organized. There can be a lot of effort and thought put into putting things in order, or your work can involve more communications. Watch for a tendency to fret, worry, and over-think. Health, chores, routines, and wellness programs can be more interesting topics for you now. Today, you’re drawn to others as the Moon transits your partnership sector. It’s also a time for seeking out more balance in your life if things have become a bit too chaotic or disorderly. This can be a good day for some validation from people in your life.
PiscesMercury is visiting your solar fifth house, dear Pisces, and will stay there until August 4th. During this cycle, you are proud of your ideas and very good at expressing them. Your thinking is more creative than usual, and you tend to entertain others with your communications. Your sense of humor and mischief is strong. You’re standing out from the crowd on a mental level with Mercury encouraging your desire to share your observations and ideas with others. You’re more inclined to play games, express yourself more spontaneously or bravely, express your affections, and think about/analyze your love life. You might be seeking more interesting and offbeat ideas and subjects and perhaps even people. Generally speaking, this can be a mentally fruitful period. Breaking free from the past in some manner is made a little easier today, and it’s also a good time to get back on track with your daily routines.
