Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Relationships may not be functioning at their very best today, dear Aries, as you can be going in and out with wanting closeness or time to yourself. Or, there is some off-timing as people lack confidence socially just for now. Even so, you could have the chance to unbury a problem, and this helps you move forward. You are quick to support or defend others today. If you can do something you enjoy, regardless of whether you’re able to share it with others, then you can go far now. There can be friendly rapport with a partner as the day advances, however. Emotions and actions tend to work in harmony, which creates a pleasant atmosphere for getting along. You’re in the mood for special attention, and you are more likely to receive it if you express your own feelings sincerely and without expectation.
Insecurities or self-doubt can play with your interactions today, dear Taurus, but self-awareness will do wonders for improving your connections. Sometimes, timing is a little off, and it’s not something to worry about. In fact, small “downs” can make the “ups” feel especially wonderful. The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, and you’re looking for comfort in the familiar. Pouring a little more heart into your work or health regime may be all it takes to make you feel good today. You’re a bit more enthusiastic about your work and daily routines these days. If you find yourself in a negative space of regret, remind yourself to focus on the one thing that you can control in life, which is your own attitude. The release of a burden or secret might figure strongly now.
You are drawn to interesting and smart people today, and they to you, dear Gemini, as you are inclined to help solve others’ problems as well. A passion or crush can be energizing, possibly even motivating you to better yourself or to do your best. You’re likely to be busy in a pleasant way. Thre can be good news to share or receive, or the chance to get a whole lot of little things done and behind you. You might also make valuable connections with others. It’s a good time for reaching out to others through words and gestures, for expressing your affections, and perhaps for some flirtation and experimentation with new ideas and relationship possibilities. However, because people are more sensitive than usual, it may be best to avoid criticizing as much as possible, even if you feel it’s constructive, as others are unlikely to take it very well.
Tune in to your intuition when it comes to finding ways to properly using your resources today, dear Cancer. Overthinking things is where you may get into trouble right now. You’d also do well for yourself if you select activities that keep you grounded. You can be excited about taking action or doing something productive related to your personal or home life. You want to solve problems to feel you’re ahead of the game. There is a general tendency right now for people to speak without sensitivity. Try not to be one of them! There can be guilty feelings if you haven’t paid enough attention to the important people in your life. Your emotional state strengthens by feeling secure and independent, and efforts put forth to reach these goals are most favored. Keep your mind peaceful now, and you can learn and gain insights into recent events or problems.
You can enjoy fresh energy with studies, projects, and mental interests today, dear Leo. The challenges of learning something new figures strongly now. The Moon is in your sign all day, and with its harmonious aspect to Mars, the desire to act on your feelings is stronger than usual. It’s a decent time for seeking a stronger connection to the world around you, but you should keep in mind that not everyone feels as open and carefree as you do at the moment. Fortunately, self-directed activities are favored. If you find that others are defensive of their feelings or personal space, you might decide to save significant conversations for later. A Venus-Chiron aspect active today can point to some emotional distancing in close relationships. You’re nevertheless in good shape for doing your own thing. Use your mental courage wisely.
You’re more inclined to look within for guidance today with the Moon in your privacy sector all day, dear Virgo. You’ll benefit from some personal time and space now. Your desire to manage your resources is active, and you’re emotionally tuned in to that need. Make plans, but aim to conserve your energy in preparation for busier days to come. Also today, keep in mind that people are sensitive and perhaps a little distant emotionally. You might want to watch for the subtle levels in any messages you convey now, as it may be missing the mark emotionally or others are misconstruing. The focus should be on recuperation and regeneration if you can manage it. Work spent on solitary or private projects can benefit greatly. Some level of operating behind the scenes is appropriate, particularly if you’re moving towards the close of a project.
You don’t need judgment right now, dear Libra, and you certainly can use time with people who genuinely allow you to be yourself. There is good energy for going your own way, but friends can also be very supportive. You are supportive of them, as well. Even so, Venus, your ruler, is in a challenging aspect to Chiron today, and a bit of chaos in your daily life can distract you now. Be a little more diplomatic than usual, particularly with those you work with or spend a lot of time. It can be all too easy to become entangled in disagreements about sharing responsibilities, imbalances of power, or money. These things aside, the day can be useful for explorations on a mental plane. Connecting with a network can be enjoyable and reinforcing.
The Moon in harmony with Mars can help let actions speak for you today, dear Scorpio, where regular communications fail. You are more aware of the impact you’re making today with the Moon at the top of your solar chart sensitizing you to your performance and what others may be thinking. At the same time, a Venus-Chiron transit suggests that we’re all a little more sensitive than usual. While you’re usually coming across very well these days, you may feel a bit stiff or unnatural about sharing your ideas, creations, and love in spots today. Aim to draw on past work or resources and use them to further your ambitions in the present. Your sense of responsibility heightens, but while it’s essential to get a good grip on your priorities now, it’s also important to make time for relaxation.
Teaching and learning may be in focus and are likely to come quite naturally to you today, dear Sagittarius. Activities that allow you to give physical form to your feelings can appeal. Even so, people around you may seem to need a little space to understand their feelings, and the tendency to doubt one another is stronger than usual. Adjustments and sacrifices seem in order, but dealing with these now can help to free you up for real opportunities later. Do something non-routine and refreshing for your spirit for the best results now. If someone is not as accommodating or confident as usual, aim to take things in stride. It’s likely temporary. The Moon spends the day in a fellow Fire sign, helping you feel more natural, decided, and forward-focused.
Today’s energies seem to favor stepping back, observing, and processing, dear Capricorn. The Moon is in your solar eighth house all day, and it can be especially appropriate and beneficial to explore what’s on the inside, although you’re also very curious about others and their motivations. Your own motivation levels are stirring up, mainly related to career or long-term goals, and today, you can more readily tap into this enthusiasm. Judgment may be a little off just for now, however, with a Venus-Chiron aspect in play. Some hesitation with expressing your own affections or stiffness in your communications and interactions could result. Timing is slightly off, but it’s temporary–you may only need more time with your feelings before embracing them. Regarding the practical world, however, you’re quick to become worked up and fast to adopt something new.
You may be a tad aloof today, dear Aquarius, but this may even add to your appeal, as it may leave people feeling that they want more. If you’ve been giving others the power to make you unhappy, then you’re more likely to see this more clearly today. Reflection is favored over taking decisive action regarding the bigger things. However, light activities can thrive today. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and you seem to enjoy some company more than usual. Its harmony with Mars suggests shared activities can be exciting. You find it easier to accept new ideas and explore new subjects, directions, or events now.
The day’s energies are a little mixed, dear Pisces, but workable. Give yourself time to cozy up to a topic and focus on those things that genuinely energize you for best results. You’re resourceful and ready to solve a problem, particularly in your private life. Not everything is clear in the world of your affections, but the remedy for uncertainty is focusing on simplifying. Try not to force thinking on these fronts — it’s better to let things flow naturally. As well, it makes sense to allow yourself time to process your feelings. You could be excited about a work or research task, perhaps finding it gently challenging and compelling. Getting the little things done helps free yourself up from guilt and worry, and it’s a fine time to glue the pieces together.
