Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your work sector, dear Aries, and you are ready and willing to roll up your sleeves and take care of business. Your focus today is on the little things that are not working and need special attention. It’s a good day for taking something apart and putting it back together in a better way. However, there are a couple of aspects that suggest misjudgment today. Built-up resentments can emerge in disruptive, although possibly quite subtle ways, and it’s a good idea to recognize this and resolve not to let them drive your behavior. You may not feel particularly confident about your plans, or you can be frustrated with what you don’t know, feeling a little in the dark and wishing for clarity. Let time tell and do your best to avoid going to extremes. Consider, too, that there may be promises made that are forgotten later. Differences of opinion that escalate into arguments are another possibility. It’s important to avoid jumping into a commitment right now.
TaurusWith the Moon’s transit of your joy sector all day, you are coming out of your shell, dear Taurus, and you are ready and willing to share some of your feelings with others. If possible, choose an activity that works out the personal drama, such as going to a movie or working on a creative hobby. With two minor challenging aspects influencing the first half of the day, however, fear or worry can lead to undue pressures, stress, or impulsivity. You could feel that others are holding something back from you, or you might be frustrated about being in the dark about a matter, but it’s a good idea to exercise the patience to ride things out. You’ll learn more if you relax and observe rather than push, prod, and full-on investigate a matter today. Aim to lighten your load rather than take on more.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your domestic sector, dear Gemini, and there’s good energy with you for enjoying activities close to home (or at home). Still, restlessness is certainly a factor in the astrology of the day. The Moon is emotional, and while your emotional orientation is towards home and family right now, if there are problems here, these can assume larger proportions today. Try not to be your worst enemy, as can be the inclination with the Sun in a minor challenging aspect with Pluto. You may be sabotaging the very things you feel you want the most with controlling or compulsive behavior. Identify these things so that you can work on eliminating the fears that drive this kind of behavior. Avoid extremes for best results, and be patient that things will unfold as they should. The first step is to identify this pattern if it exists so that you can go ahead and tackle the fears behind them. You’ll do far better observing before taking action. Consider, too, that it’s all too easy to misjudge energy and capabilities, particularly with work, business, relationships, and money.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Cancer, and you’re more communicative and interested in learning or making connections. It’s not the best time for tasks that require focus and concentration, however. There can be a tendency for compulsive behavior if stress is left unchecked with the Sun in a minor challenging aspect to Pluto. Watch for a perfectionist attitude or going to extremes to make something work for you when it may be better to enjoy what you already have. The tendency can be to make life more difficult than it needs to be when a simpler, easier path is available. You might want to avoid confrontations until you know where you truly stand on the issue. While it can be hard to detach yourself from others’ behaviors, it may be better to avoid getting all wound up now.
LeoWith today’s Moon transit, dear Leo, you have a strong need to live in the here and now. Activities that ground you or reconnect you with the world of the five senses are comforting and appropriate today, particularly since slightly destabilizing energy is also with us. For one, a minor but challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto can ramp up tensions surrounding your sometimes perfectionistic goals in the areas of work, routines, or health. Keep in mind that you may feel pressured to do something quickly when patience would probably serve you better, and a Mars-Jupiter aspect might try to convince you that you should take on more than is wise. Getting to a better balance between work and rest is an ongoing issue in your life these days. Today, aim to pace yourself.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, and your emotional needs feel more of a priority than usual. You can feel frustrated about things that seem beyond your control in the first half of the day with the Sun in a minor but challenging aspect to Pluto. The tendency may be to overcompensate by attempting to control people or situations around you. Of course, this doesn’t resolve much, if anything, so decide to make changes going forward, but don’t put all the pressure on yourself to do so all at once. You could feel torn between working on a project alone or drawing upon other resources to lighten your load. It’s not a natural choice for you right now since you enjoy the satisfaction of doing something on your own. Today’s Moon transit is energizing on an emotional level, and your mood is strong, as you’re especially in touch with your feelings, but given to fluctuations. Keep things steady by remembering how vital your inner world is and the people closest to you. It might be difficult to turn off your runaway thinking, but it would be a good idea to give your brain a rest. Sometimes you just don’t need to know! Aim to go with the flow and enjoy a timeout.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Libra. Ideally, it’s time for quiet activities and relaxation. It’s quite natural for you to want to take it easy now and much needed. In fact, you may need some level of solitude to solve a problem. There can be a growing desire to find a way to escape if you don’t have the option. The day’s energies are somewhat challenging, particularly if you’ve been accumulating resentment that’s looking for ways to release itself! You could be tempted to oversee or over-control people and situations when this won’t resolve anything. Try to be conscious of this behavior if it emerges, and aim to tame your desire for more. There can be a real desire to focus, but part of you is also looking for an escape. For some, a false lead in your work or research can emerge. You may only need to unwind and let your imagination go before returning to goal-chasing.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Scorpio, inspiring you to reach out to others. There can be some minor tension as the Sun and Pluto form a minor challenging aspect. It can be all too easy to work yourself up about things that you can’t truly control. You may feel that you’re out of the loop or in the dark about a matter, and this can be frustrating, but consider that you may very well not need to know. If others are being difficult, try your best to detach yourself. Be on the lookout for a perfectionistic attitude towards your projects, daily affairs, or studies that might interfere with your enjoyment of other areas of life. Resentments tend to surface, but it can take some time to get to their root, so don’t push yourself to find answers immediately. While for the most part, you’re enthusiastic, your mood is subject to some ups and downs, and judgment may be a little off. You’re also more sensitive to power and its use in your relationships. You may want to think about changes you’d like to make rather than pursue any definite plan just yet, as emotion tends to win over reason at the moment. Let your imagination take you to a healthy place rather than allow it to pressure you to make too-quick decisions today.
SagittariusOthers quite instinctively turn to you to take the lead, even in the smallest of ways, with today’s Moon transit today, dear Sagittarius. While it’s a good time to look at your responsibilities in a new way, it’s not the best time for setting anything in stone. There is some tendency to allow a fear of losing control (or of being out of the loop) to interfere with your enjoyment. A relationship may be the most affected. Do your best to let go of the tendency to become all wound up about your practical affairs. If you have the energy, time, and opportunity to make changes that improve your life, do so, but avoid worrying too hard about what you can’t truly control. You could feel driven to pursue a goal or dream, although you could miscalculate some details today, making it best to wait things out.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Capricorn, and you’re more spontaneous and impulsive than you have been in recent days. A Mars-Jupiter influence today reinforces this theme, but it can be hard to get much off the ground without a solid plan. As well, a tense aspect between the Sun and Pluto in your sign is also in force, adding some edginess to the day. Watch for hanging on too tightly to attitudes or methods that are actually bringing you down. Control is very often an illusion, and the more you attempt to get it, the more you lose your freedom to be yourself and enjoy your life! The Sun is in your work and health sector egging you on, and while you are motivated by work, chores, and health goals, these don’t always mix well with other personal goals. The key is to avoid pushing yourself to do too much at once. Sensitivity in your communications is especially important now.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Aquarius, and you’re in a particularly observant frame of mind. You’d rather take your time and digest things before jumping into anything right now. There can be some tendency to act compulsively if you’re not aware of what’s bothering you in the first half of the day, however. A Sun-Pluto aspect can produce a subtle feeling of being excluded, or guilt can keep you from fully enjoying yourself. It may be best to put projects to rest or to the side (if possible) if they are interfering with getting the leisure and regeneration you need. You might consider those things, including attitudes, that are no longer serving you well, and working on ways to put them behind you. Look for areas where you may be overdoing things due to restlessness.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and others feel more relaxed with you, dear Pisces. There can be satisfying communications. Still, avoid trying to clinch something today as there can be some poor judgment. If you suppress your feelings or avoid looking at the source of tensions, compulsive behaviors can result, so aim to be as self-aware as possible and to second-guess impulses that go against the grain. Watch for taking on so many things that you feel overwhelmed today. You might have an urge to go something alone that clashes with the realization that others could lighten your load if you share it. While it’s best to wait before making promises, even to yourself, it’s a fine to explore your feelings and desires. You may connect with a desire you never knew you had, and it’s empowering to be honest with yourself.
