Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is a time for stretching your imagination, dear Aries. If life feels a little confining, it can help to vary up your routine even in small ways, as you could be hungry for just a little more than the usual today. With Neptune turning direct today after many months of retrograde motion, you’ll be reviewing which elements of your life need to go on a shelf. Over the coming weeks, you’ll find that counting on your intuition comes naturally after a period of questioning or second-guessing certain things. Information and signals you’re receiving are more reliable, or it may be that your ability to process them increases. Believing what you hope is true can leave you somewhat blinded to the reality of situations, but you can never truly deceive yourself. Believing a lie that you’re telling yourself can wear away at your confidence — in yourself, in others, and in life itself. It can feel good to rid yourself of such burdens. Mercury’s harmony with Neptune today returns your faith in a project or idea.
It’s a good time for finding answers to recent emotional dilemmas, dear Taurus, although you’re arriving at conclusions in non-traditional ways. Even if you are keeping to yourself more than usual, there are many ways to express your feelings without having to articulate them directly. You’re likely to find some channels for self-expression that satisfy now. It’s an excellent time to nurture a dream or wish. Neptune turns direct after several months of retrograde motion, and in the coming weeks, you’re building your faith in your friendships, goals, and alliances. Neptune is still Neptune, however, and some aspects of these areas of your life can remain up in the air. Even so, you feel less as if you are in limbo and more confident about where to put your trust. You might hear from a friend after a long absence or pick up an old project and begin reworking it.
Neptune turns direct today after retrograde motion since June, dear Gemini, and you may feel as if you’re getting over a hump. In the weeks ahead, you’ll gradually rebuild your faith in matters related to career, long term plans, and ability to meet your responsibilities. This is not about gaining crystal-clear vision and more about reinvesting your faith in the dreams that serve you well. Even if you are not clear in your direction, you are likely to feel more confident that things will unfold as they should. Neptune’s lengthy transit of your goals-and-career sector teaches you to let go of expectations and believe in your capabilities. Your reputation or professional image can improve as a result. It’s a good time for bringing more imagination and inspiration into the work you do. A career project may begin to move forward after some lagging. Today’s not a time for tackling the harder issues, but it’s suitable for bonding and reaching new levels of understanding with someone, even if this is an unspoken thing. Also today, you seem to come alive through one-on-one interaction, learning much about yourself through the mirror of relationships.
Neptune turns direct today after several months of retrograde motion, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to feel reenergized on spiritual levels. Going forward, you’re building the faith that you’re headed in the right direction, even if it’s not explicitly defined. With Neptune a long-term guest in your solar ninth house, you’re learning that you don’t always need clarity to embrace living. While you may have been wrestling with a tendency to procrastinate recently, you’re now inspired to reach a little higher. Travel, educational, or publishing matters, plans, and decisions may begin to move forward now. You’re less distracted, and your belief in yourself and life itself is growing. More and more, you believe in your dreams. There can be a turning point in a project or an attitude/perspective. Today’s Mercury-Neptune transit may bring on some news or the confirmation of a hunch that boosts your mood.
Neptune turns direct today after retrograde motion since June, dear Leo, helping to mobilize a financial matter. If you’ve been experiencing confusion about boundaries with others or with your own limits, you’re now turning a corner. While you may not gain full clarity, you’ll feel less in need of answers, and perhaps less overwhelmed. This Neptune shift is empowering, as days of procrastination on finances and dependencies are nearing an end. In the weeks ahead, you’re likely to rebuild faith in your ability to work through problem areas. Today’s energies are strong for seeing a problem in a new, more positive light. A hunch can lead you in the right direction, or an idea or conversation inspires you. You may feel reinvigorated on a spiritual level or in your intimate world in the weeks ahead. It’s an excellent time to see where you may have been losing ground due to wishful thinking. Thinking up ways to improve the more spontaneous, creative, and entertaining side to your life is appropriate today.
It’s a good time to look out for your needs to relax, rest, and get comfortable, dear Virgo. We all need times when we self-nurture, and this can be one of these times for you. Familiar activities are attractive now, particularly if recent days have been hectic. Also today, Neptune turns direct after retrograde motion since June. You can be turning a corner regarding decisions about who and what you want in your life. The process of learning about your relationship needs is ongoing, and it’s not always very clear. There will be several peaks and valleys along the way, and now you’re heading towards one of the peaks. As much as possible, be honest with yourself, but don’t bog yourself down with doubt or negativity — aim instead to refine and improve your dreams. While this shift isn’t about more clarity, you’re rebuilding your faith as you seek out more suitable dreams or sources of inspiration.
With Neptune’s direct turn today after several months of retrograde motion, dear Libra, you’re renewing your faith in what you’re doing or in the idea that more meaningfulness is to come. Your efforts to improve your work, health, and daily routines improve in the weeks ahead, helping to clear your mind of guilt or worry. Your life doesn’t straighten out overnight with Neptune’s change of direction, but you feel a little more confident that you can turn around some problems. Also today, you’re more likely to be multi-tasking rather than focusing on one or two things with the Moon transiting your communications sector all day. While your mind can wander, making it difficult to focus on the tasks at hand, it’s also entirely possible that it takes you to imaginative places. You need days like this that allow for some freeform discovery rather than strict routine.
The Moon in your solar second house inclines you to focus on your practical affairs, dear Scorpio. Still, there’s a tendency for some pie in the sky thinking. There is some inspiration to be found, particularly through a friend, lover, or even a child, that you might apply to a practical goal. Neptune turns direct today after retrograde motion since June, and you can feel reinvigorated on creative and romantic levels in the coming weeks. You’re encouraged to believe in your dreams or to clear your mind of dreams that no longer serve you well so that you can make room for new ones. Confusion in your life in recent months may have had to do with the avoidance of getting in touch with your heart on a matter. Now, you’re listening to your heart, even if you don’t have all the answers just yet. A creative project, cherished hobby, or romantic friendship may show signs of progress.
Neptune ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Sagittarius, as it continues to transit your home and family sector. There can be forward motion regarding your home, living conditions, or living arrangements, as well as relationships with family, roommates, and loved ones. In the weeks ahead, you’re less likely to procrastinate, particularly when it comes to taking care of family and home-related matters. The inner troubleshooting that you’ve done in recent months will begin to pay off as you regain some sense of direction and determination in the weeks ahead. You are reinvigorating dreams and plans now. The Moon is in your sign all day, and emotional energy runs high. Others are paying you more attention than usual, while your attention turns to your needs. A Mercury-Neptune transit points to a hunch that falls into place and is confirmed or an idea that inspires you.
As you come near the end of a Moon cycle, dear Capricorn, you can benefit from some time to yourself to regroup and renew yourself emotionally. Try to take any opportunity you can to pamper yourself through peaceful activities, reflection, downtime, meditation, or rest. The Moon will enter your sign tomorrow and reinvigorate your need to connect and start fresh. Also today, Neptune ends its retrograde cycle that began in June. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be rebuilding your faith in your projects, learning, studies, and relationships. You’re more likely to share your ideas and inspiration with others, and less inclined to procrastinate or question your goals and dreams. Some misconceptions may come to light, but you’re gaining more confidence in your creative process. A learning, writing, or transportation issue that has been in limbo. A Mercury-Neptune aspect now can confirm a recent hunch. You’re connecting with others in happy and creative ways.
Neptune turns direct today in your resources sector, dear Aquarius, and in the coming weeks, you’ll see your material affairs strengthening. Faith in your ability to handle your responsibilities builds, as well as in making the living you want or attracting the right resources to you. It’s a time of the reinvigoration of your spirit, imagination, and perhaps your more fanciful dreams or plans. You’re putting more faith in your intuition with business and financial matters. A money matter that was stuck or in limbo may now release and progress forward. While your relationship with your money, income, talents, and resources is an ongoing journey with several peaks and valleys as Neptune transits your solar second house, you’re headed towards one of the peaks. Today is also about tuning in to goals that make you feel more connected with the world around you. Reaching out to others is one way of seeking out more emotional satisfaction, and another way involves focusing on some of the dreams and hopes dearest to your heart.
