Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon’s move into your solar second house today can put you in a practical frame of mind, dear Aries. Still, you are quite innovative now, able to bring new energy to the material world. You indeed need some predictability and comfort with this transit, but your idea of what’s comfortable is changing these days. If you have trouble relaxing or unwinding, you might consider adding very simple, grounding, and earthy activities to your day. Offer freedom to those around you for best results today, but also take time for yourself. Watch for too-quick decisions related to money or belongings. Aim to feel and enjoy your accomplishments before considering whether you should shoot for more just yet! Pursuits that are a bit too routine or confining can frustrate now, and it’s a good idea to find constructive ways to freshen things up.
You can be a bit more energetic and spontaneous than usual with the Moon’s move into your sign, dear Taurus. Emotions are immediate and at the surface, but you seem to be setting the pace for the most part now, and it can feel good to be in control and on top of things. Ideally, you can set the pace, because you’re not in the mood for submitting to others’ rules and direction right now! It may be best to put effort into personal plans or projects that require robust or bold but not necessarily long-term effort. If you’re allowed some space, the day can play very much in your favor. While you’re seeking a little more intimacy or depth in your relationships and projects these days, you’re sensitive to any of these things that seem to be infringing upon your independence right now. It can be a time for breaking out of a rut or pattern in a relationship or a specific routine that’s not getting you the results you crave.
You’re in fine shape for activities that serve to renew or refresh yourself today, dear Gemini. A surprising feeling can emerge, or your instincts for managing problems may be on the radical side. Don’t waste time pretending to yourself that you’re over something. Instead, aim to work on letting go of the things you no longer need. Take your time processing recent experiences as the Moon moves into your soul sector today. Jupiter’s tense relationship with Uranus today may stir up some discontent. You’re inclined to find much to love about someone in your life these days, but today, you may feel a little rebellious. Aim to recognize this need for space, both for yourself and someone important to you, since feelings of being confined or hemmed in can lead to unnecessary conflicts if left unattended. Your need for some “alone time” is real, and the trick now is to find the right balance.
Energies today stir up a stronger desire to be around people, dear Cancer, but you still need a bit of space. You’re seeing philosophies, beliefs, or goals that you have in common with someone. You may want to push the usual boundaries and seek out different experiences. Watch for the temptation to prove your independence, which can lead to poor decisions since it can mean reacting to others rather than acting from your heart. Keeping an open mind and your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences. It can be challenging to concentrate on your duties with distractions in your social life, but it’s best not to throw something out too quickly now. If you have too much on your plate, even if it’s fun stuff, you may end up feeling quite hemmed in or restless.
You are seeking some inspiration today, dear Leo, but don’t let impatience spoil a good thing. Changing attitudes towards others’ opinions of you these days can lead you to want to do something out of the ordinary if only to drive home the point that you answer only to yourself. However, you have some more work to do on this front before you can truly be as free-spirited as all that. This is a time in your life for trying on new ways of presenting yourself, pursuing your goals, and handling your work and responsibilities. Seek out ways to make changes that suit your evolving self or that feel more authentic, but do so in steps. The people you meet while pursuing your goals can be inspiring and original now. It’s a time when you can be craving novelty, independence, and creative room, making it necessary not to weigh yourself down with too many demanding pursuits. At the same time, overdoing the leisure side of your life can complicate the pursuit of your larger goals and ambitions.
You can be feeling a bit impulsive today, dear Virgo, and while you should enjoy this energy boost, avoid overshooting or adding more to your plate simply because you feel you can handle it now. Consider that you may not feel the same way later when not quite as inspired. You can be restless to learn something new or to do something different. It’s a good day for identifying problems in your life and visualizing life as it would be after putting these things behind you. In this way, you can get closer to solutions and resolutions. Even so, you may feel pulled in different directions, and the frustration of indecision could lead you to jump into something impulsively. Look for ways to improve your living conditions or to renew a project related to family or home life, but do keep your need for new or mind-expanding experiences in mind. Dare to do things just a little differently, and avoid taking on so much that you leave little room for other pursuits.
You’re inclined to go inward today, dear Libra, and you can make it an illuminating, positive experience. Consider that you may be spending too much time reacting to your feelings instead of simply connecting with them. Anger tends to dissipate when you allow yourself the time to feel the emotions of hurt, and this may be a goal today. Watch for rushing a financial or intimate matter. Impatience can get the best of you, and you may want to push something forward too quickly when it needs more time to develop. Try not to give in to this pressure, and avoid adding too much to your plate now, or you may feel a bit trapped. Be flexible if there are small changes in your schedule or disruptions in your routine since they may very well lead to fun and informative detours. Look for ways to do things just a little differently so that thinking and connecting stays fresh.
Today’s energies can be favorable for enjoying others’ company and connecting, dear Scorpio, as long as you aim to live in the moment without rigid expectations. You tend to be more emotionally invested in your relationships today with the Moon’s move into your partnership zone. If an important player in your life is unreliable or unpredictable, giving everyone space makes sense, but don’t lose sight of your needs. You’re emotionally sensitive to others today, more so than usual. Using this sensitivity in positive ways can be rewarding. Watch for pressure to make a quick decision. The desire for something different can take hold, but you may not know precisely why you’re feeling restless. The best way to handle this is to recognize a need for change rather than pushing it to the side and allowing arbitrary restlessness power your decisions. Aim to make changes rather than react to things happening to you.
While you’re not thrilled about the monotony of the routine today, dear Sagittarius, you are more inclined to pay attention to your chores. The Moon moves into your sector of work and health for a couple of days. Your energy levels can be variable and very much dependent on your level of inspiration! Avoid pushing yourself too hard, but do enjoy the extra boost of motivation to get your life organized. Surprises are likely today related to work, health, and daily affairs, and this can throw you a little off-center. However, they can also lead to new and exciting methods. Aim to seek out ways to refresh and enliven your life in areas that have become a little too dull, but pay special attention so that you don’t overcommit. You may want to change plans due to rather sudden revelations.
Today’s energies are favorable for creative expression, dear Capricorn, although there can be some wild cards, and it’s best to stay flexible. If others are unreliable or inconsistent, aim to write your own terms, even while giving them some space. Jupiter’s tense aspect with Uranus can point to disruptions or the need for some freedoms. Surprises can temporarily throw you off-center, but they may very well lead to exciting detours, bringing on just the right kind of refreshment you need. Small changes can lead to significant improvements, particularly related to your creative world and romantic life, but this can also be about the adjustments you make to your thinking and attitude that have a positive impact on your life. Learning new things about your emotional needs can lead to exciting new beginnings.
With the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house today, dear Aquarius, it’s a time when you may stick with the familiar, and the tried and true benefits you. More adventurous days do await, but for now, some self-pampering and nest building can be refreshing. There can be some unreliable energy with you today, and you can’t and shouldn’t control everything, but you may decide to let it play out on its own, allowing you to catch a breather. A Jupiter-Uranus aspect points to surprise events or feelings related to friends, home, and family, that can throw you off-center or skew your thinking temporarily. Try not to make overly quick decisions just now. There can also be a strong desire to do a makeover of some regions of your life. Listen to your discontent, but avoid pushing yourself to take on too much at once. Too much even of a good thing can start to infringe upon your sense of freedom. Recognizing your need for refreshment is vital since it allows you the opportunity to take charge and make the changes you want.
The Moon heads into your communications sector today, dear Pisces, and you’re looking to feed your curiosity. You can be somewhat stubborn about an idea or learning project right now, and there can be some frustration today if you feel restricted or forced to stick within rigid rules. It’s a day for honoring your need for more variety and stimulation, but it’s best not to go too far with it. If you have the chance to color outside of the lines or to set your own pace, then take it. While it may not be the best day for concentration, you can be productive if you put your mind to it, and if you vary up your routine. Sometimes we need a rush of frustration to motivate us to make a change, and one may come today. Keep your plans flexible and to leave some options open. You need the room to explore, discover, create, and come to your own conclusions or else you’ll feel confined. It’s an important time for giving your mind something new and refreshing on which to focus.
