Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can be feeling especially enthusiastic about particular interests these days, dear Aries, and you may be drawing people into your life or inspiring people you already know to enjoy the things that motivate you. The second half of the day finds you more introspective and cautious with the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house, but in no way unfriendly. In fact, your feelings are especially warm. It’s a good time to set priorities and to enjoy simple things. It’s not a time for pushing or reaching beyond boundaries, but you’re in great shape to emotionally prepare for more demanding days. Strive for a sense of being grounded, rooted, and secure. You begin a cycle today that runs until the last day of January, and it’s excellent for seeking out more emotional satisfaction or nourishment from your work and long-term goals. You may be giving more special, loving attention to your work or business, or you’re projecting a more caring and dedicated image. Work might benefit from extra consideration of the personal side of your interactions, reaching out to people, and helping others.
This is a good day for positive gestures and making contact with others, dear Taurus. While generally speaking with Mercury still retrograde it’s best to avoid hard and fast decision making, the Moon in your communications sector in the second half of the day does stimulate a desire to communicate, connect, and collect information. It connects harmoniously with Uranus in your sign, suggesting you’re coming over well. You are more inclined to move from one activity to the next than to specialize or focus. You could be quite interested in reaching out to others, making connections, and keeping busy. There is an eagerness to explore new options, and it keeps you engaged and interesting. As well, you begin a cycle today that’s excellent for making that extra effort to learn new things, take trips, or seek out varied experiences. These things increase your feelings of emotional satisfaction and lead to a stronger sense of well-being. This cycle lasts until the end of January.
The Moon continues its transit of your sign in the first half of the day, dear Gemini, and the focus is on your connections, feelings, and personal interests. Practical and business matters thrive with your powerful intuition later today after the Moon moves on. With Mercury still retrograde, we can be a little fuzzy with facts, but you’re in good form for new ideas and instincts with money right now. You may only need to refine them at a later date. You’re more inclined to stick with the familiar than to venture out looking for new experiences, and emotions are easier to tuck away. It’s a time to seek out overlooked assets and consider ways to boost your feelings of security and comfort. Logic and emotions mix quite beautifully, making it a good time for finding ways to put what you have to better use. As well, you enter a cycle today, lasting until the end of January, in which emotional nourishment and satisfaction come through a warmer, more vibrant connection to people and endeavors.
In the first half of the day, ease into things, dear Cancer. Before the Moon enters your sign, it’s best to rest and regroup. In the second half of the day, the Moon moving into Cancer engages your emotions. The Moon reaches out positively to Uranus in your friendship sector, and you’ll find it easier than usual to express yourself. There is a stronger need for self-nurturing, which shouldn’t be dismissed, but also good channels for expressing your emotions through sharing, dreaming, and connecting with others. Feelings that you’ve set aside or buried to deal with other issues in your life can rush up to the surface now. You’ll need to deal with the expectations of people important to you eventually, but you also need some personal space! A cycle that begins today can act as further incentive for you to reach out to others and make the time for socializing or partnering. Until the end of January, mediating and counseling and otherwise partnering up can be beneficial.
Your mind can be busy this morning, dear Leo, and you can feel quite engaged and connected. In the second half of the day, the Moon transits your privacy sector, drawing your attention to behind the scenes, background, and private matters. It’s a time of the lunar month to take some of the pressure off your life to regroup. While there is a real tendency to want to escape or retreat from the usual noise and activity of life, routine can be dissatisfying as well now, and a change of scenery may be just right. However, a new cycle beginning today and running to the end of January suggests that it’s very much worth your time and effort to pay loving attention to your work and physical health. You’re likely to feel especially rewarded and accomplished as you fulfill your daily duties and routines. Helping others or improving your work and services can be in stronger focus and satisfying.
The morning is good for taking care of business, dear Virgo. You’re in a take-charge mood, drawing upon more energy than usual to apply yourself. As the day advances, you crave some recreation or inspiration as the Moon moves into your social sector. There can be stimulating conversations in your social network, perhaps sparking an exciting project. It’s one of the better days for casually communicating in this retrograde Mercury cycle. Doing favors for others may be a good way to express yourself now. You can feel especially enthusiastic about a topic. This is a time for seeing a way out of a problem. A new cycle begins today that provides you with further incentive to pursue your interests as well as for giving your hobbies, creative projects, children, or romance more caring attention. Bringing more creativity to your life promotes a sense of well-being and better health all around, both mental and physical, and this transit lasts until January 31st.
You can be blissfully unfocused in the first half of the day, dear Libra, but the Moon’s next move to your solar tenth house puts you in a more serious frame of mind. You’re likely to feel a bit of pressure, mainly of the good kind, to perform at your best. It’s a good time to get back on track. Still, you’re staying flexible, and you’re ready to challenge yourself just a little. With the Moon at the top of your chart, you might also feel the urge to reach greater heights. You can accomplish a great deal on practical levels. You might be able to draw upon experience or uncover hidden information that furthers your objectives. Your imagination, creativity, and emotions are playing a significant role in your work. Even so, a new cycle begins today that boosts your desire to make your personal life more comfortable and nourishing, and this transit runs until the end of January. Confidence derived from your home and family life will ultimately benefit you in your career and with your more worldly responsibilities.
This morning is good for emotional strength and centering yourself, dear Scorpio. As the day advances, you’re interested in getting out and about or more actively involved in life–as a participant rather than an observer. Of course, both methods work well in their own special way! There is undoubtedly an emotional need to escape the duller, mundane matters of daily life now. If you can take a detour from the routine, your mood tends to elevate. You take a stronger interest in new ideas, places, and people. You’re drawn to ideas and people who are unique or distinct. This can be a good time for sharing ideas and visions with a friend. Generally speaking, with Mercury retrograde in your sign for a little longer, it’s not the ideal time to expect to know all the details, facts, or figures, but it is a fine time for connecting with a different perspective on your life. You’re also starting a new cycle today that’s excellent for paying particular attention to your interests and projects, studies, errands, and connections. There can be beneficial teaching or guidance activities during this transit that lasts until the end of January. You’ll put yourself in great shape if you open yourself up to some of the goings-on around you in the weeks ahead.
The Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector until almost midday, dear Sagittarius, and bringing more harmony and a stronger sense of balance to your life are in focus. You’re not at your most independent, and this is just fine as part of a natural, larger cycle. In the second half of the day, you’re a little more serious-minded, or you simply want something to absorb you. Tricky issues or ideas can be tackled now with greater ease. You’re looking to feel a little more powerful and in control of impulses that aren’t serving you well. You can benefit from taking a step back and planning your next move. A cycle begins today in which you might thoroughly enjoy saving up for something special, nurturing a business or personal venture, and enjoying a more stable, predictable life for a spell. Watch for a tendency to self-pamper with overindulgence. Otherwise, put the extra effort into making your life more comfortable and enjoy the benefits of doing so! This Ceres transit lasts all the way until the end of January, and it prepares you well for the upcoming Jupiter transit of the same area of your solar chart.
While the day can begin with a focus on the most practical of matters, dear Capricorn, you become more and more focused on relationships and tend to want to pair up to get things done by midday. This transit finds you at your most adaptable and accommodating, and it gives you an extra boost on a social and romantic level. You have a way of expressing yourself today that draws people in and allows them to open up. You might also be weighing pros and cons, or adjusting areas of your life that have fallen out of balance. You may be in the position to strike a compromise. A new cycle begins today that puts Ceres in your sign until the end of January. This transit motivates you to recognize your emotional life, sense of independence, and needs for nurturance and special attention. You’ll be projecting a warmer personality as well as more confidence in your need for personal time.
This morning is good for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood, dear Aquarius. As the day advances, you prefer not to be idle, and you’re ready to put in the work. The Moon brings added emotional charge to the details and flaws, making it a strong time for fixing problems, unless you end up fixating on problems instead of trying to solve them, which could lead to a lot of unnecessary stress. You’ll find that others are thinking and responding rather than reacting, however, and this allows for smoother conversation flow. A new cycle beginning today can frequently find you seeking out comfort from behind the scenes activities, private moments, and personal time. During this transit that lasts until the end of January, you might consider using solitude and rest as a means to take better care of yourself. Doing this kind of work on yourself can prepare you better for the next cycle when you feel prepared to take care of others. Healing comes from getting in touch with your deepest feelings about people and situations in your past that are still hanging in your aura.
Building emotional strength and self-esteem are in order with the Moon’s transit of your solar fourth house this morning, dear Pisces. Quiet or behind the scenes activities seem to fare best. As the day advances, you’re ready to share yourself with the rest of the world! You’re paying more attention to the things you love, as well as games, entertainment, and activities that allow you to express yourself and your sense of fun. Energy flows particularly well for relationships and creative pursuits, as well as for all things mental and communicative. A relationship can expand as you share your ideas. Another move today puts Ceres in your social sector until the end of January. You more frequently look to friends for nourishment during this cycle. You may be developing and strengthening your bonds and connections with others, as well as bringing more loving attention to long-term “happiness” goals or your community.
