Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You could experience some feelings of discomfort related to your more profound emotions, attractions, and attachments today, dear Aries, with the Sun in your intimacy sector in minor challenging aspect to Chiron. Consider it a signal to give your heart a little more time on a matter. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you feel emotionally engaged and awake. This is a time for paying particular attention to emotional needs that have been brushed aside, but do your best to avoid pressuring yourself (or others) to fill them! Patience will serve you well right now. A Mercury-Pluto sextile helps you see the value of investigating a matter further. You see things, especially money matters or relationships, in a new light this week, and exciting information can surface now that helps this process along.
The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Taurus. This is a good transit for getting extra time to yourself and for healing or detoxifying. This morning, there can be minor confusing impressions and sensitivities, or a feeling of being overwhelmed by work can interfere with your desire for rest and replenishment. It’s a time to reevaluate matters and allow yourself more time, not to drop or abandon a pursuit. An excellent aspect helps you with the patience factor today, and may even give you a window into a past matter, enabling you to see things differently. Forgiving yourself if you haven’t met a goal and evaluating where you can make adjustments to get back on track seems your better bet. Conversations and thoughts seem to be about the past, but they’re growth-oriented, so be prepared for honesty.
Insecurities or uncertainties can bother you a bit early today, dear Gemini, disrupting your routines or mood. Still, as the day advances, you tend to focus on getting to the heart of a matter, and this focus does you some good. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, stimulating your desire to connect with others in pressure-free ways. Tensions may disrupt your routines or work, and perhaps leave you feeling a bit under the weather, but you’re ready to put something behind you. Try to focus on what you feel good about doing and tune out what others think or say, as much as is feasible. Consider that a temporary dip in motivation or spirits can be useful for realigning yourself. The day advances with more purpose as Mercury and Pluto form a harmonious connection. It becomes far easier to focus on what matters most.
There can be hesitation expressing yourself openly and naturally in the first half of the day, dear Cancer, with the Sun in minor challenging aspect to Chiron. This transit can leave you second-guessing yourself or a situation. You might also sense that others are not receiving you very warmly or that something is just a little off. In truth, we can be a little reserved with our feelings under this influence, but this can point us in the direction of productive areas of your life that need attention. It’s more about insecurities than it is about the reality of a situation. Your best bet may be to keep your head down and get things done to ride things out. The Moon spending the day in your career sector can help–taking care of business is emotionally satisfying with this transit. As the day advances, it’s easier to tune out the fluff and home in on something interesting and absorbing–even consuming–with a Mercury-Pluto aspect in play. Putting a new spin on things can change everything, in all the right ways.
With the Sun in minor challenging aspect to Chiron in the first half of the day, dear Leo, it’s a better time to keep things status quo than to push ahead. It probably won’t pay to make waves because confidence is dipping, or you don’t have all the tools you need to manage a situation. This is temporary and can help you reorient yourself. Part of wants to break out of confining situations but it’s at odds with a need to stay close to the hearth. As the day advances, you could find it quite natural to do some research, investigation, or analysis that helps you see a problem in a new way. It’s the time to get to the bottom of a matter revolving around work, home life, family, living arrangements, and living conditions. Meaningful exchanges and musings are likely now, and the focus is on repairing, healing, and understanding a matter more thoroughly.
A plan can hit an obstacle, or there can be a delay to handle in the first half of the day, dear Virgo. You may feel confined or limited but not entirely sure of yourself and your desires to break free. You could also be teetering between wanting to keep things light and straightforward, and craving more depth and meaning from your interactions today. Still, as the day advances, you’re far less vulnerable to outside influence and less sensitive to what others may think or do, and this increases your ability to concentrate. A Mercury-Pluto aspect turns your attention to a past predicament or situation, now with new information or a different perspective. It’s an excellent time to investigate a matter more deeply. You’re ready to put a problem behind you, although this can be a multi-step process. Some discouragement is possible, but could also make you work a little harder.
You can be hesitant or uncertain in the first half of the day, dear Libra, particularly about your resources or even your value and worth in a situation. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should probably avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime. As the day advances, you see the value of tuning out such distractions, seeing them as transient and not very impactful. You want to tackle rather than sidestep a problem as retrograde Mercury harmonizes with Pluto, helping you see a new layer of a situation. A conversation can give you further insight, or you come across information that makes you feel a little more secure and settled. You’re drawn to precisely the resources or connections you need. You might benefit from setting aside special time for a project or study. Socializing can lead to useful financial tips or money-making ideas. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and you’re seeking the security of others’ company.
The Sun in your sign forms a minor challenging aspect to Chiron in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, and you may feel somewhat off-center. This temporary lull slows you down long enough to explore alternate routes and to make essential adjustments. A dip in confidence may help you see flaws in a plan, but the important thing is to jump to fix them rather than dwell on them. After a brief spell of feeling doubtful or unmotivated, you’ll find it easy to tune out the non-essential and enjoy a more focused, purposeful approach to the day. It’s a fine time to do editing or reviewing and researching as Mercury and Pluto harmonize. It can be useful to go over an old statement, conversation, or decision and make some refinements. A new take on an old problem is refreshing.
People around you can be quite self-involved in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, or something left hanging can weigh on your mind. It’s probably best to try to tune out the distractions or noise and work on your practical goals now, avoiding brand new beginnings, making waves, or essential decisions until confidence returns and timing improves. As the day progresses, though, you’re far less likely to allow vulnerabilities or insecurities to overrule you. Mercury and Pluto harmonize, and you can find an activity or line of thought quite absorbing. You’re particularly fascinated with the past, the mysterious, and the hidden these days, and you could find out something interesting along these lines. Quiet activities can be satisfying. You are seeking out new meaning from a different perspective. This can be a good time for specialized research or studies.
Insecurities or matters that are left hanging can take over your thoughts in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, but they’re easy to let go of as the day progresses. The Moon spends the day in your sector of home and family, and you’re ready to settle things down. While early day can find you wrestling with doubt, or circumstances seem to test your vulnerabilities, you can move beyond this or you get the chance to sort everything out to your advantage as the day advances. Aim to identify areas within you that may be preventing you from claiming happiness. Avoid people-pleasing, but consider that certain feedback you’re receiving is useful. This week, you’re likely to see a matter in a new way, and today’s ruminations or conversations take you on that road.
There may be some doubts to manage this morning, dear Aquarius, but slowing down and a small level of hesitation can help you find yourself. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, stimulating your curiosity and need for variety. Still, demands on you can be frustrating at times, and you could feel overwhelmed with tasks. You may feel the need to let others know your limits if they’re pushing you. Criticism is harder to take with the Sun in minor challenging to Chiron. As the day advances, you could learn something that empowers you, particularly along professional lines, and there is more of this set to unfold in the next couple of days. Your words can cause a bit of a stir. Today’s transits are also useful for exploring different ideas and for connections with a friend.
A brief dip in your faith in or enthusiasm for a matter is possible earlier today, dear Pisces, but as the day progresses, your confidence builds. It’s probably best to allow things to unfold as they will than to make bold moves. As the day advances, something can consume your attention, and this can be both pleasant and useful. Tuning out distractions can improve your mood. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and you’re inclined to want to play things safe. You prefer a steady pace right now. A sudden concern about expressing yourself may slow you down anyhow. However, later today, greater focus and understanding regarding a friendship, idea, or statement can emerge, and it feels good. It remains better to observe than share your plans for the time being, and current transits are excellent for strategy.
