Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Old issues that you thought were put behind you might emerge and occupy your mind today, dear Aries. You may not be seeing eye to eye with someone, as you could be seeing the frustrating elements of a relationship more than the benefits temporarily. You’ll be in the best shape if you can nip those in the bud as soon as possible. People around you are dealing with their issues and are less likely than usual to intuit your needs, so you may need to find ways to manage your own affairs and do things solo. Feeling frustrated with your domestic or relationship situation can light a fire under you to get things sorted out. Look for ways to unburden and simplify your environment and think in terms of lightening your load. Later today, the Moon enters Leo and your entertainment sector, prompting you to follow your heart. You’re tuning into needs that you’ve pushed to the side.
This morning, you’ll find people are cooperative and willing to give you the benefit of the doubt, dear Taurus, or they go along with your plans. As the day advances, some tension is possible as your need for light conversation or activities clashes with your duties. The Moon’s argument with Mars from your communications sector can point to an equal interest in personal pursuits and responsibilities, but it’s important not to overdo. Life can be a little too chaotic if you take on too much now. Tensions with work or small problems can distract you, and because your interests lie elsewhere, you seem to divide your attention more than usual. Try to tune out some of the overthinking if you can. Your emotional focus shifts later today, and you crave more security and comfort, making everyday activities suddenly quite appealing. It’s undoubtedly a day of contrasts, and you may be battling distractions or unrest frequently enough. It’s best to allow your emotions to catch up with your mind before making big decisions.
Today is good for activities related to money, practical, work, and health improvements, dear Gemini. It can be difficult getting everyone to cooperate or go along with your plans as the day advances, but you’ll find it rather straightforward to go your own way. You’re in a uniquely practical frame of mind, but you’re also inspired intellectually. Even so, there can be some crankiness to deal with, as well as concerns about your resources or talents. In all likelihood, your fears are blown out of proportion, and the sooner you get perspective, the better. Time can only tell, but pacing yourself and avoiding jumping to conclusions makes sense now. Over-stimulation can interfere with your mission to take it easy, and curiosity is set to build as the day progresses. Watch for an exhausted nervous system, and aim to de-stress, keeping in mind that this doesn’t always mean idling for you–a positive mental focus can make getting busy a rewarding thing.
The Moon completes its transit of your sign three-quarters through the day, dear Cancer, and then moves into Leo and your resources sector. Until the Moon moves on, you can find yourself quicker than usual to act on your emotions. You’re also inclined to meet the world more directly, and people around you notice you more! The Moon brings unacknowledged feelings to light, and this is undoubtedly illuminating, but with its square to Mars, watch for overreaction. Relations can be a little tense with or among family, and the matter may be about power and control rather than the surface topic. You are especially sensitive right now, and your emotions can swing dramatically. Aim to identify and decrease undue pressures. Your needs for independence and forward motion can feel a bit at odds with your desire for comfort and predictability, but if you pace yourself, you may find ways to attend to both needs in small but satisfying ways. Later today, you need a bit of a break from the drama and crave more predictability. Emotions tend to settle down, although your own needs and wants remain firm in your mind.
The Moon transits the sign of Cancer until this evening when it enters your sign, dear Leo. You’re inclined to take things easy or keep to yourself until then. Listen to your intuition and body signals if they tell you to rest today, and if it’s possible and appropriate, avoid situations that are too demanding or competitive. You’ll naturally come out of your shell as the day advances. Still, you may have difficulty with something that’s said, unnecessary criticism, or unsolicited advice. Tension may be brewing related to personal viewpoints, paperwork, or errands that were forgotten or that require your attention. While your spirit for discovery is active, you may also need some time alone to sort out all of your feelings and experiences. As well, there can be invaluable opportunities to solve problems and enhance family relationships. Learning and communications are areas of enthusiasm and motivation these days, but you may be jumping ahead of yourself, and in the process, creating unnecessary tension.
Until late afternoon, you’re in a rather sociable mood, dear Virgo, after which you’re ready to pull back just enough to gain much-needed rest, relaxation, or time for reflection. It’s a natural progression of the lunar cycle as you prepare for a new cycle when the Moon enters your sign to begin Tuesday night. Nevertheless, as the Moon clashes with Mars today, you could wrestle with concerns about money, ownership, and respect or self-worth, perhaps feeling as if personal boundaries have been crossed. The tendency to misjudge or dramatize a matter is widespread right now, not just you. Assess whether it’s best to put your energies into letting go and moving forward rather than expending it hanging on. Gaining others’ support may not be your first choice, but it may very well help free you up to make real improvements. The day later shapes up to be a little more insular. You may want to conserve energy until you have the confidence to go full speed ahead.
A focus on goals and responsibilities continues today until late afternoon, dear Libra, after which you seek a break from heavy thinking and planning. Pressures tend to ease today with the Moon’s movement out of your profession and reputation zone, although the Moon heads into a square to Uranus, keeping things lively. As such, it makes sense to seek ways to detox or center yourself. The need or desire for friends and light entertainment grows as the day advances. Throughout the day, you may struggle with different distractions if you’re unsure where to devote your energies. While you should concern yourself with what others expect of you to a moderate degree, becoming frustrated with competition or criticism is possible, and you may need to turn it around by using it to fuel your motivation to improve. Doing some compartmentalizing would be good for you now.
There can be a tendency to be quick on the trigger when it comes to speaking or communicating in spots today, dear Scorpio. Watch for hypersensitivity and quick reactions when patience will serve you far better. Of course, if unwarranted feedback comes your way, you don’t have to grin and bear it. The overall tendency to be quick on the trigger is with all of us now, and jumping to conclusions may obscure today’s strong opportunities to express yourself creatively or affectionately. Until late afternoon, you’re less focused on specifics and more interested in the big picture as the Moon journeys through your sector of the higher mind. This energy is adventurous, seeking, and optimistic. Later today, you’ll crave more details and structures, and your thinking becomes more goal-oriented. You’re likely to come up with unique methods of doing work, managing health and well-being, and handling chores. While there can be cranky energy around you at times today, frustrations experienced now can be lead to new strategies that genuinely work for you. Still, try not to jump ahead on new projects if you haven’t yet completed the ones already in place.
Your emotional frame of mind is deep, profound, and a tad serious until late afternoon, dear Sagittarius, after which you see more value in letting things go and moving forward. Even disruptive events that might occur today can ultimately turn out to be blessings in disguise, pushing you in new directions that benefit you. Even so, you can feel a little torn between your genuine needs for introspection or attention to important matters and your social demands or inclinations. There is some tendency to go overboard, to move too soon, or to promise more than you can reasonably deliver. Emotions can be up and down. Given some room for spontaneity, you open up as the day advances. There can be pleasant surprises and new developments on romantic or creative lines. A surprise attraction or meeting with someone from your past is possible. There can be sudden or unusual progress with your goals now.
Emotions are big related to a significant other or relationships in general today, dear Capricorn. As the day advances, you’re more interested in getting to the heart of a matter than creating surface harmony as the Moon moves from your partnership sector to your intimacy sector. Emotions run deep, and you seek out involving projects. It’s probably wise to be on guard about gossip or misrepresentation today. While you can be focused on bringing a sense of balance and peace with others and in your environment, there can be some trial and error getting to this point. In fact, it’s a tall order right now, so don’t get down if you can’t quite achieve it. It takes two! While there can be some ups and downs today, particularly surrounding opinions and work, you’re in an excellent position to see what you truly value and how others appreciate you when it comes to the services/support you provide or your career.
The Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector until late afternoon (or when the Moon enters Leo in your time zone), dear Aquarius. This suggests a continued focus on fixing problems, after which you’re inclined to want to relax and enjoy some special company. All day, you’re focused on bringing more order to your world, first in your surroundings, and later in your relationships and social life. While you may feel a little harried today until you find the right groove, when you do discover it, you can feel especially empowered. Exceeding your limits can be a learning experience, but it may be better to define them first before acting. Avoid a pace that’s so quick that you miss enjoying the small things. The Moon’s square to Uranus tonight suggests you may be battling nervous energy up until the end of the day, but this also keeps you on your toes, perhaps inspiring a brilliant idea or plan.
The Moon continues its transit of your creative sector until late afternoon, dear Pisces, after which taking care of business seems to satisfy you the most. In fact, idling could make you nervous! Even so, with the Moon’s square to Mars and later Uranus today, tensions or distractions are likely much of the day regardless–it’s just a matter of adapting and managing them. It’s a tall order, but not impossible. You might feel a little torn between applying yourself to a challenging project or problem and enjoying some fun time. Signals can get crossed in love matters, and emotions are up and down. Be mindful of what you’re taking on, particularly new projects or commitments, as there may be a reason to regret them later on. Seek out situations and activities that nurture positive self-esteem and self-perception.
