Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Your love of learning is in full swing today and this week, dear Aries. You’re broadening your perspective and entertaining new ideas and beliefs, and thoroughly enjoying the process! Others are especially intrigued with your ideas and viewpoint. The Moon spends much of the day in your sign, and you can be feeling inspired and motivated, even with some pressure or frustration related to a significant person in your life this morning (the Moon in your sign opposes Mars). Overall, though, you believe in yourself and your endeavors now. Going a bit out of your comfort zone increases your faith in yourself and the world. There can also be new thinking on a financial matter or a relationship that’s significant today and tomorrow. Your fresh perspective on money could steer you on a better path. Or, you might conclude that you’ve been dwelling on a past relationship or problem, which has unnecessarily weighed you down.
This is a wonderful week for discoveries about your inner motivations and psychology as well as close connections, dear Taurus. You might arrive at improved self-understanding that helps you bring a better “you” to a relationship, and you might also see a companion in a new light. You may be straightening out issues in a close relationship regarding power dynamics, possessiveness, or ownership matters. If sharing has been out of whack, you’ll see it more clearly now, and you’ll want to correct it! New ideas on a connection or your relationship needs can emerge, and they may come from seeing dysfunctional elements more clearly. Conversations, particularly one-on-one talks, can be significant today and tomorrow. Even so, getting some time to yourself can be useful with the Moon not quite in your sign until later today.

A feeling of camaraderie emerges now, and it feels just right! Friendships, entertaining, enjoying company, or connecting with your happiness goals and dreams can figure strongly today. There can be a subtle boost in your social or romantic life. Friends tend to bring good news or advice. Today and tomorrow, you’re likely to get a real sense of what you want or need from your work and daily routines, and musings or conversing you do on the matter can be especially useful. You’re reaching a turning point of sorts, moving you from a state of indecision to increasing clarity, on a job, service, or health matter.
