Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Early today is excellent for filling in the blanks, dear Aries. You might benefit from getting your daily life and routines organized now. Drawing up and talking about plans on the lines of work, long-term goals, your environment, and health can be beneficial. You’re moving toward a better lifestyle or a stronger sense that you’re in control of your life in fundamental ways. As the day advances, watch for a tendency to add too much to your plate. There can be some misleading talk or false leads at this time. However, sometimes we need to entertain big or impractical ideas as a form of mental exercise before coming back down to earth. This way, we can see things we normally miss, and this may be the case today. You may get all wound up on a mental level, and perhaps some great ideas can come out of this kind of tension.
In the first half of the day, dear Taurus, you’re in good shape for tuning out distractions and work on what’s a priority. Promotion or self-publishing can be quite successful now. Making something productive or profitable out of a hobby can be in focus, or you’re sorting out critical areas of your life. You might receive clarity or confirmation of a matter. As the day advances, however, you might jump upon a new idea, and, in your excitement, forget about the practical details required for its realization. Otherwise, listen to your creative ideas and inspirations, even if they seem a little way-out. Stretch your mind while keeping your feet on the ground. Great ideas usually go through many transformations before reaching their potential.
The first half of the day is excellent for finding ways to improve your family and home life, dear Gemini. Or, you’re in good shape for boosting your relationship with yourself and your inner world. Conversations with or about loved ones can be constructive, and researching information you need can be useful. Clarity or confirmation can come to your personal or private life now. As the day advances, there may very well be talks that are impractical or exaggerated. It may be a helpful exercise to think in big ways, especially if you previously missed an opportunity by focusing mainly on practical possibilities. Ideas are big and easy to come by, but they’re hard to bring home! The problem is that there are so many things to consider that it can be hard to know where to begin.
In the first half of the day, you may find a way to turn a vision into a reality, or you see a situation more clearly, dear Cancer, and this is a relief. Making plans and dealing with details are favored. You’re in great shape for setting the record straight or sharing advice. Someone may come through for you or bring clarity to a previously uncertain situation. As the day advances, it’s important to keep a check on your communications. Mental restlessness can undoubtedly lead to positive experiences, as it can motivate you to seek out new and interesting information or interests. Discipline, however, can be lacking if you are required to focus on boring, rote, or monotonous work. It may also be that you have so many interests and projects going that you don’t know where to begin and end up wasting time deciding!
A grounded, reasonable approach to your life is favored in the first half of the day, dear Leo. You might receive news that clarifies a previously uncertain situation, or you could draw up plans to improve your life in fundamental ways. You have a stronger sense that the effort you put into a project will benefit you down the road, and you have the foresight to consider your long-term security. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to throw caution to the wind. Thoughts are up and down now. Ideas may be visionary, or you may be thinking too big. It’s hard to say which direction this will take when Mercury and Jupiter form a square aspect. This energy may produce a war of words about personal possessions, value, intimacy, and respect. While you could be unproductive right now as you focus on the less essential things, priorities will be easier to see shortly. The ordinary may not satisfy just for now, and this can encourage you to stretch your mind to entertain new possibilities.
Verbalizing plans, even if only in a list for your eyes only, can be very useful today, dear Virgo. You may find that you’re a better judge of an idea if you see them in real terms. Mercury in your sign harmonizes with Saturn, encouraging you to consider practical details. You may gain clarity on a matter. You crave a little more organization, structure, direction, and purpose, and these things are likely to come now, even in small ways. As the day advances, however, you’re thinking in far bigger terms. Try to enjoy the exercise of thinking up possibilities, but don’t bank on them until you’ve had more time to sort out the practical side. It’s probably better not to put all your eggs in one basket just for now.
In the first half of the day, information might arrive that clarifies a matter for you, dear Libra. You’re ready to make improvements. You may feel more organized or “in the know.” This can be a great time to plan a retreat of sorts for refreshing and reclaiming personal energy. As the day advances, there is a tendency for people to make mountains out of molehills. This is not a waste of time–it may very well lead to some exciting ideas and possibilities. However, it’s best to reserve judgment or adopt a wait-and-see approach. The tendency is to not judge things very clearly, mainly due to optimism. It’s a good time for positive thinking, but the details may not get their due attention.
The Mercury-Saturn influence in the first half of the day wants you to pay attention to what’s realistic, dear Scorpio. You may be inspired to improve your life through news you hear or due to a friend’s encouragement. People seem to be taking your word for it. You might opt to put your ideas in writing, make lists, map something out, and make plans or resolutions. As the day advances, you’d prefer to let your thoughts roam more freely. You can be considering fantastic ideas and dreaming up ways to pursue long-term happiness. It’s best not to run with them just yet, as impracticality is likely with a Mercury-Jupiter square in play. Watch for going overboard but enjoy the mental exercise involved with thinking in big terms.
The first half of the day is excellent for grounding you, dear Sagittarius, although as the day advances, you’re inclined to let your mind roam more freely. This morning, you get a good sense of what’s viable. Professional goals or plans can be in sharp focus. It’s a good time to sort out your affairs. Later today, however, you’re not as interested in the details as much as you are focused on the big idea. For best results, avoid sweeping decisions that come on suddenly and impulsively. Do allow for stretching your mind to consider new possibilities, but don’t take on more than you already have under these conditions–you may overreach now. It’s important to simplify as you can be juggling far too much right now.
In the first half of the day, you’re in excellent shape for making plans and focusing on practical details, dear Capricorn. You’re focusing on what’s realistic and doable, and this is something you not only enjoy, but you’re also very good at it! It can be a good time for gaining some inspiration or motivation. As the day progresses, it can be much harder to lock something down or gain clarity. The truth is too easily stretched, and it can be frustrating for you to witness. It’s better not to push or promise something too soon. Even so, not all ideas that emerge now need to be written off. While they are likely to need some refinement later, plans related to creative, publishing, travel, or educational matters can be interesting, indeed.
You may enjoy bringing form to an idea in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. You’re drawing upon sharp common sense and a real taste for knowing what’s workable and doable. If you need support, this can be a good time to get it. This is also a favorable time for investigating or researching a matter more profoundly. Getting some peace and quiet can be invigorating. As the day advances, you could find it harder to relax, however. Watch that you don’t miss important, practical details or focus on things that don’t truly matter in the long run. There is some tendency to make mountains out of molehills–information coming in may be overblown. Reserve judgment.
You’re in good shape for collaboration or the strengthening of ties with a friend today, dear Pisces. Clarifying a matter can be in focus and quite a relief. You may very well find yourself in a better, clearer, more empowered place. Common sense seems to rule, and problems can be managed. Sharing the load seems to work best right now. A conversation with someone can be a source of comfort, security, or good advice. Even so, as the day advances, things are less focused. You can enjoy this mental freedom, but you may also find it harder to lock something down. Try not to rush through your work or conversations, as something may be overlooked. As well, it’s best not to make promises or put your faith into others’ proclamations just for now. Judgment may be off just for now.
