Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Moon moves into your sector of spirit and discovery today, dear Aries. You might connect with someone who helps broaden your experiences, or you are ready to explore something new, seeking out a little more meaning today. Pluto is turning direct after retrograde motion since April, helping to unblock matters related to career, finances, and intimacy. Even so, this can be an intense time for happenings in your career and your personal life. Extremes of feeling are likely as the shift occurs, after which things normalize. Sound energy is with you for making necessary changes in relationships with a parent or boss going forward, as well as for taking steps to improve your position. If there is a negative attitude or bad habit that you need to kick, this is the time to do so.
You can be somewhat torn between wanting to push something productive forward and enjoying yourself today, dear Taurus. The Moon does move into your intimacy sector, however, and this inclines you to pull inside yourself for a short stretch. You’ll also find that certain things fall right into place–things are working in your favor. Also now, Pluto turns direct after retrograde motion since April. Problems with a partner or close friend that have been brewing under the surface of things–or swept under the carpet–are beginning to make themselves known. The good news is that you now feel more able to handle these things, and you’re prepared to make long-lasting improvements. While the shift occurs today and tomorrow, people may be more emotionally reactive than usual, but in the coming weeks and months, you’ll gain clarity on a partnership, travel, educational, legal, or promotional matter. Faith in a system or conviction for a particular belief returns, and your desire to explore the world increases with Pluto’s change in direction.
You can experience some tension between the desire to enjoy downtime and the need for some interaction or feedback today, dear Gemini. Even so, you’re heading into a friendlier, more interactive two-day phase. It’s a fine time to connect with and learn from others. Also today, Pluto is about to turn direct after retrograde motion since April. In the weeks ahead, you’ll feel more confident and motivated to take charge of your life, particularly with your work, daily routines and habits, health, and finances. You are less concerned with whether you’ve made the right choices in the past and more focused on your current path as well as your prospects. This is a strong time for identifying unnecessary elements in your routine or attitudes, making it easier to streamline. You may be actively doing research, and you can apply yourself with increased focus and dedication now. Results arrive this week. The shift today and tomorrow can temporarily magnify worries, although soon enough, you’ll get perspective.
The Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, dear Cancer, and you’re ready to sort out problems. Flaws can bother you a little more than usual at this time of the lunar month, but you’re prepared to fix things. Pluto is turning direct after retrograde motion since April, and there can be a feeling of a breakthrough in or about close relationships. Now and in the coming weeks, more clarity is likely in your love relationships and partnerships. Someone is influencing you in such a way that your outlook shifts or you notice forward movement, growth, and improvements in a partnership. You might come to a decision that has been a long time (and possibly five months!) coming. You might be surprised to discover an ally now, and perhaps this energy is about a newfound faith in someone you already know.
Your curiosity is strong today, dear Leo, but you don’t feel entirely ready to put effort into connecting, so you could feel in limbo in spots right now. The Moon heads into your sector of joy and pleasure for a couple of days, however, and this seems to clinch the need to enjoy yourself. Do watch for the tendency to rush decisions. Pluto is now turning direct after retrograde motion since April. This shift puts you on the verge of some exciting insights into how you can better manage your domestic life, work, and health. It comes at a good time since there is increasing attention in your chart to your home life. A work project or a job can move forward now and in the coming weeks. The motivation to pursue a new or previously shelved health program can return. You’ll be feeling more and more on the ball and empowered. Of course, there can be some intensity while the shift occurs, so don’t rush into anything. Observe and strategize.
The Moon heads into your home and personal life sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo. You’re seeking a bit more comfort and familiarity so that you can center yourself. Today’s energies are on the intense side, nevertheless. A Mercury-Mars aspect is subtle but can push you to take action, but it doesn’t seem to give you direction, which can result in restlessness. After its yearly retrograde period, Pluto is turning direct, and this shift helps rebuild your enthusiasm for hobbies, mental interests, projects, studies, and romance in the weeks ahead. It’s a time for applying recent insights about your relationships and pursuits. You’re ready to make essential changes, and it all starts with your can-do attitude and rising motivation levels. This comes at a good time with communications, studies, romantic feelings, dating, and personal interests receiving more and more attention in your life. Today during the shift, emotions can be exaggerated or seem overwhelming, but this is only your way of adjusting to the changes.
The day promises to be a particularly mentally active or busy one, dear Libra. A Mercury-Mars connection can fire you up but may produce some combativeness or impatience. Ideally, you’re simply motivated to learn, study, or communicate. The Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, further igniting your curiosity. After over five months of its yearly retrograde cycle, Pluto is now turning direct, giving you the sense of moving forward. Even so, you could feel undecided just for now. There might be some chaos with the shift before things truly begin to take off for you in the areas of finances and domestic matters. Your determination to resolve challenges is building as you feel increasingly more equipped to manage problem areas. Acknowledge the need to make changes and improvements for best results now. Letting go of something you have been using as a crutch or of something that has been dragging you down may be part of this energy now. Home-related projects can move forward in the coming weeks.
The Moon moves out of your sign and into your resources sector for a couple of days, dear Scorpio. While this helps stabilize you and turns your attention to practical matters, there is some tendency to feel in flux. Pluto, your ruler, turns direct after retrograde motion since April, and some issues are likely to unblock. Your life becomes clearer, even if today can be a little chaotic with the shift happening. Take care not to jump into action without thinking of the consequences with a Mercury-Mars aspect that can put some vague pressure on you to take action. More clarity is likely to come to your communications. Issues that have been buried or swept under the rug might emerge now for better handling. You can finally come to a decision or conclusion about something you’ve been stewing over for some time. A project can unblock, or news arrives that pushes your studies or a venture forward. With clarity, motivation and energy levels take off. This comes at a good time when your sign is getting more and more attention. Tomorrow, for example, Mercury will enter Scorpio, and you’re finding your voice. Do a clear-out now on a mental level so that you make room for new ideas.
The Moon heads into your sign this morning, dear Sagittarius, and you can feel as if you’re reawakening on some level.

Slowly but surely, you’ll be taking charge of your resources, even if at times you worry too much about them. You can feel empowered to make significant changes, primarily related to issues surrounding self-worth, money, handling matters of the past, and income. This is a time for letting go of automatic behaviors that have not served you well. You may be cutting the cord regarding a project or even an attitude that has been pulling you down. During the shift itself today and tomorrow, concerns can intensify but should decrease as you sort them out and make more sense of them. A business or financial matter can move forward or unblock.
Pluto is now ending its five-month retrograde cycle, dear Capricorn. This shift can give you a distinct feeling that you’re moving forward and more in charge of changes in your life. Even so, the shift itself can leave you feeling as if you’re in flux. You are less likely to dwell on problems and more likely to take matters into your own hands, take charge of your impulses, and resolve issues in the weeks ahead. Opportunities can emerge this week to make long-lasting friendships or to make changes to your friendships and group associations that benefit you for some time to come. Income from a business can spike for some of you. This comes at a good time — when planets are heading into Pluto-ruled Scorpio and your social sector, helping you make the best of current trends. It’s a good time for contributing, sharing, and connecting.
Pluto is turning direct after over five months of retrograde motion, dear Aquarius, and this augurs well for your career, reputation, and feelings of self-mastery. While the shift itself can be disorienting today and tomorrow, you’ll feel some unblocking this week and the next. You’re less likely to brood and more willing (and feel more equipped) to make changes and improvements.
