Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re treated to a different perspective on a matter, dear Aries, and it helps you out. Learning endeavors are especially favored, as you are seeing patterns and putting all the pieces together, but what fares even better is sharing ideas. The North Node of the Moon begins its transit of your communications sector, and until May 2020, some of your greatest joys and challenges are likely to emerge through learning, communications, and connecting. It’s a time for developing your communication skills and for sensitizing yourself to others’ needs and communications. Ideally, it’s a transit that helps you achieve a stronger feeling of inner balance. It can be a time to enjoy more lighthearted chats, connections, studies, and personal interests from time to time, which can help round out your experiences. Today’s energies are also quite brilliant for creative ideas and ventures.
TaurusToday’s energies are good for spotting a great deal and for practical ideas and solutions in general, dear Taurus. You are especially intelligent and creative in your methods, particularly with work, schedules, and daily life. It can be a good day to see new ways of doing things that improve or make your life a little more enjoyable. Also today, the North Node of the Moon begins its rather lengthy transit of your solar second house, and this transit can help you get money matters sorted. Rewards come through learning about your values and self-worth during this cycle that lasts until January 2022. Personal income, possessions, and values are in strong focus. This transit can nudge you to depend on yourself and to establish your self-worth through your own efforts, and the rewards for doing so are great.
GeminiToday’s energies are particularly good for sharing a bit of yourself with others, dear Gemini, and for ideas and solutions that are innovative. Expressing your affections comes readily to you now, and your enthusiasm and passion for your beliefs and ideas come shining through.

The period ahead is one of confidence-building and of expressing yourself in new, exciting, and positive ways.

You are learning to overcome any existing fears of trusting your instincts or going it alone, and it’s a wonderfully empowering process.
CancerThis can be a rewarding day for connecting with family, loved ones, or your inner world, dear Cancer. It’s a time for paying more attention to emotional needs and support systems. You’re emotionally more courageous than usual, however, and you’re ready to look at matters in new ways. It’s also easier to recognize your deeper needs and desires today. Private and intimate matters soar. Also today, the North Node of the Moon leaves your sign after an eighteen-month stay, heading into your privacy sector until January 2022. This transit encourages you to give due attention to your inner world, mental health, and spiritual needs. In the period ahead, some of the greatest joys (and challenges) come through connecting with your need for rest, spirituality, and dreams or solitude and privacy. Your path is to attempt to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt and trust in a larger spiritual plan.
LeoThis is a good day for sharing and communicating, dear Leo. If you’ve held yourself to special projects and ideas recently, then this is your opportunity to diversify and put your feelers out. It’s a fine time to pick up new information. Also today, the North Node heads into your solar eleventh house for a stay until January 2022, and you’re likely to feel quite refreshed and renewed. The cycle ahead is a time for discovering a need to connect with others or to feel more involved. Cultivating true friendships can be rewarding. Your relationships with others, as well as your relationship with yourself, will benefit. Sharing the load may mean sometimes sharing the credit, but overall, you’re in good shape for rounding out your experiences. You can be working on letting go of any resistance you might feel about being “one of the crowd,” and you may be moving towards a more objective approach to your life.
VirgoWhile you often seek mental outlets for expressing yourself, dear Virgo, you’re drawn to the physical world and practical activities for filling your emotional needs today. You can feel particularly satisfied through the performance of your work or services, or from accomplishing something solid. You can feel an unusually strong need to put things in their proper places. Also today, the North Node moves into your solar tenth house, where it will influence until January 2022. In the period ahead, some of the greatest joys and challenges are likely to come through fulfilling your responsibilities or through your career and public life. It’s a time for stepping up to the plate! The challenge is to arrive at a healthy balance between your personal life and your responsibilities to the outside world.
LibraYou are expressing yourself with more creativity and dynamism today, dear Libra. Others appreciate your natural personal style. You are enthusiastic about creative projects, people in your life, and hobbies or recreational pursuits. You’re radiating healing vibes today. Your need for more emotional color is strong with the Moon’s transit of your sign. The North Node of the Moon begins its transit of your spirit sector, where it will stay until January 2022, encouraging you to reach beyond your usual limits or routines. It’s time to challenge yourself to explore new ideas and nourish your spirit. You’re receiving a cosmic nudge towards adopting beliefs that genuinely reflect the current “you,” and you’re learning about your need for self-expression through non-routine activities, studies, and experiences. It can be a time for an evolving worldview and new perspectives.
ScorpioWith the Moon in the hidden sector of your solar chart all day, dear Scorpio, you are a little more retiring than usual. Still, you have good energy with you for feeling pleasantly connected with someone or focused on a relationship in a comfortable way. It’s also a good time for tying up loose ends, reflecting, catching up on rest, and healing. You may very well admit to feelings you’ve been avoiding. The North Node of the Moon moves into your solar eighth house for a transit that lasts until January 2022. This tends to point you in the direction of paying more attention to your spiritual, sexual, and emotional needs. You’re seeking the right balance between give-and-take in your life now rather than relying solely on yourself. During this cycle, some of the greatest joys and challenges come through your attachments to others, your feelings of being empowered, and your ability to share yourself.
SagittariusToday’s Moon tends to bring out your need to belong, dear Sagittarius. Consider mixing up your routine just a little, as energies today are good for experimenting with new things, even in small ways. You appreciate your relationships, which seem to be more comfortable and accepting than they have been. The North Node of the Moon moves into your opposite sign, transiting there until January 2022. It’s a good cycle for relating to a partner or for growing through a significant relationship, the eyes of another, or feedback and perspective. While you’ll be actively developing your independence and personality this year and the next, you’re also encouraged to better yourself for the benefit of your relationships. It’s a challenge to find a balance, but the rewards are potentially enormous. Healthy relationships can result. You’re moving toward a stronger identity and a sense of purposefulness through your connections to others.
CapricornYou’re seeking a healthy balance between freedom and attachment today, dear Capricorn. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, and even if you are off duty, your heart seems to be with your ambitions and goals today. Also today, the North Node of the Moon moves into your solar sixth house for a stay until January 2022. This transit encourages you to pour extra energy and love into your work, routines, and health pursuits. The more you put into these things, the more they give back. It will be a bit of a juggle, but balancing your very real needs for self-service and service to others is essential and critical now. This also applies to work-rest balance, give and take, mental and physical health — it’s all about finding the right balance! You’ll feel especially accomplished as you work towards getting a better handle on your daily affairs and well-being.
AquariusYour houses of life and spirit are emphasized and harmonizing today, dear Aquarius, boosting your mood. Enthusiasm can be about an idea, feeling, or person, and whatever it is that motivates you, it feels good to be so inspired. Also today, the North Node of the Moon moves into your creativity sector. This transit will stick with you until January 2022, and harmonizes with your sign, giving you a boost of confidence. Still, it presents a challenge as it asks you to pay due attention to your personal life. You may need to let go of some attention to your obligations to the outside world so that you can develop your love relationships or to enjoy some personal time and creative outlets so that you can feel complete and whole. The period ahead is excellent for discovering, exploring, and building your talents and the creative side of your personality. You’re also encouraged to find your creative voice, to seek out activities that you genuinely enjoy, and to discover and share your unique talents.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Pisces, and you’re connecting with your deeper feelings on a matter. You’re in a good position to synthesize recent experiences into something meaningful. This is a time to get your emotional bearings. It can also be an especially creative day for ideas or sharing interesting conversations. The North Node of the Moon moves into your home and family sector today and will influence this area of your solar chart until January 2022. It asks you to pour more energy into home life, family, downtime, nurture, comfort needs, security, and safety. It can be an immensely rewarding period for building and developing your home and family life. It’s vital to carve out some time to attend to your emotional life now.
