Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sector of goals and responsibilities, dear Aries, and your general direction is more heavily on your mind than usual. With the Sun and Pluto heading into a challenging aspect, tensions that have been building, mainly about pressures to perform or from work or competition, can rise. It’s best to identify these things and avoid letting worries take over. You could struggle with rules and restrictions, as you want to go your own way and act on your own impulses, but doing so can limit you far more later on, so patience is needed. If you’re feeling watched and blocked, make a list of your priorities or talk things through with someone you trust. With some foresight, you can feel as if you’re turning a corner in the coming days.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of the higher mind, dear Taurus, and you don’t want to feel hemmed in or bored. It’s a good transit for reaching a little further than usual, but today’s energies are on the complicated side. Buried frustrations or fears can disrupt the flow and affect your mood. Something from the past might be undermining your confidence at the moment. You would be wise to deal with matters that you’ve left unfinished so that guilt doesn’t get in the way of healthy living. Philosophical disagreements can escalate rather easily today. Circumstances may be such that you need to let go of a tendency to hold on too tightly to your beliefs and customs if they’re only causing frustration. Take the time to center yourself, and think up better ways to deal with irritating situations, as these things will serve your interests not only today but down the road.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Gemini, and you crave a little more depth from your interactions or activities. The day is great for looking into a matter more deeply, but it’s important not to go too far with this. Relations can be a little tense, and tension may be more about power and control than the issues to which we’re admitting. Your best bet is to rise above the game playing and focus on softening and moderating your impulses, even if it’s very tempting to get involved. Consider that under current conditions, people can be temperamental, and you can be, too. You may be a little conflicted about how deep your feelings run for someone. Watch for a tendency to confuse hunches with fears since there is a tendency to be overly suspicious.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Cancer, stimulating your desire for interaction and feedback. With some tense Sun aspects, close relations and career-related matters can be heavy and loaded, however. Worries can undermine confident decision-making, and people can be stubborn. It can be difficult to turn the other cheek, as you can feel pulled in different directions and possibly even a little pushed around mentally. An old pattern of relating can be challenging now, and it can be hard to see a direct route to your goals. If you and people in your life aim to be less ruled by fear or resentment and more interested in making improvements, life smooths out more quickly. Aim to apply excess energy or intensity toward constructive channels. Or, consider ways to plan out your next move rather than push your agenda now when the chances of achieving your goals are small. You can work on getting your life or a relationship to a better balance as you go along.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of routines and habits, dear Leo, inclining you to want to straighten out your life. Insecurities can seem to emerge out of nowhere today, however, with a Sun-Pluto impending. These might actually be your delayed reactions to recent events if you’ve been working on auto-pilot and haven’t processed your feelings. Interpersonal tensions are possible, or you can feel especially impatient with projects or situations. If you feel overloaded with duties, this can reach a problematic point. Pressures to meet health and work goals may be at the root of this, as you also want to experiment with new ideas and projects but can’t find the space for all of your pursuits now. Draw on your reserves of self-control and channel your considerable energies into something beneficial to you. Consider simplifying things if you’ve taken on too much. Aim to get in touch with unresolved matters so that you feel less weighed down.
VirgoWhile the Moon spends the day in your playful, expressive sector of romance and creativity today, dear Virgo, a Sun-Pluto aspect on the horizon can point to building tensions. There could be concerns or disagreements related to money and power dynamics, sharing, or level of intimacy. It can be a real challenge to dismiss a problem area right now. There can be worries or fears of betrayal in love or friendship, but be careful not to allow them to drive your behavior. Be selective about what you allow to take center stage in your head right now. If you feel indebted to others in ways that frustrate you, or if someone seems to be relying on you without giving back, it’s best to make plans on how to manage things. Pushing for a quick solution to a complex, long-standing problem can be a lesson in frustration today. If fears in relationships are eating up too much of your time and happiness, be honest with yourself, and consider ways to make changes that empower you.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your home sector, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to want to play things safe today. Some tense aspects are building now, and the messages you receive now can seem at odds. Efforts to make peace can end up with you trying to prove yourself, and this doesn’t help anyone. With the extremes you feel and see now, coming to the middle ground may be your best bet. It’s best to watch for automatic responses that don’t serve you well, as relationship ruts can be especially obvious now. There can be a competitive or tense feel to the day, but through it, seek opportunities to grow and excel. Self-awareness is helpful with difficult energies stimulating fears of losing a position, label, title, or person. The desire for company is real, but there is a lot to sort out in your inner world, and perhaps the chance to do so is what you need most today.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your solar third house, dear Scorpio. While this is usually a light, communicative transit, today’s energies grow a little tense with a Sun-Pluto square influencing the day. You may need to work on feeling empowered by living in the here and now. This transit can be a challenging one for your mood, but you can also learn much from it. You are more sensitive to imbalances of power or people who seem to have a hidden agenda. If your daily affairs are getting out of your control, pressures can mount. Avoid overthinking situations, especially if doing so doesn’t serve you well. It’s not the best time to gain an edge, as today and tomorrow are more about turning a corner by accepting a situation and making the most of it. You may be better off observing and conserving your energy. Consider delegating some of your work, even if you know you can do a better job, if only so that you can give yourself a break.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and encourages you to settle in to improve your emotional equilibrium. As the day advances, a tense Sun-Pluto square comes into play, and this transit can make it a little difficult to accept changes or to let things go graciously. Money and basic values can be tricky topics now. Airing a topic or concern can lead to healing, although it can be messy along the way, but avoid fixating on certain matters that you can’t change. Trying to force an issue will only lead to frustration today. People around you can be especially defensive and quick to jump to negative conclusions. Still, while conflicts can erupt seemingly out of nowhere and can be confusing or overwhelming, they can eventually lead to a deeper level of bonding. Aim to be flexible and to be mindful of automatic responses to others or frustrating situations. Otherwise, fears of losing respect or a position can dominate or drive behavior today.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Capricorn, raising your emotional responses. You’re more engaged and involved. Your personal life or home and family matters are taking more priority in your life with the Sun in your solar fourth house these days. Today and tomorrow, this focus can feel problematic in spots. Watch for a tendency to magnify or obsess over problems. It’s possible that with Jupiter and Pluto in your sign that you often expect too much from yourself, and especially with Pluto, that you’re fearful of losing face, a position, or a title. Consider that pushing yourself too hard and the stress that can result from this won’t help you. Aim to go easier on yourself. As well, try to avoid power plays and drawing on old, negative patterns of relating. You can want to do things your way, and this might cause some waves. Still, you can move towards a greater understanding of important people in your life, and your own emotions, if you pay attention.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day tucked away in the sign just behind yours, dear Aquarius, and this draws you to the background. You’re in touch with your need to recuperate your energy and process recent events and feelings. Today and tomorrow hold some tense aspects, and this points to feelings erupting that need careful handling. Hidden feelings of frustration or guilt can emerge and disrupt the flow until you sort them out. You could feel a little overwhelmed with things to do that prevent you from getting ahead in areas where your interests truly lie. A sense of urgency may lead to pushing yourself too hard or needlessly clashing with others. You are especially sensitive to interruptions, disturbances, and difficult people today, and there can be double meanings in conversations. Aim to focus on solvable problems in the mental or mechanical world to release energy constructively. This way, you give yourself time to cool off.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Pisces, and it’s a good idea to pay some attention to your need for pressure-free interactions with others, as these feed your soul and have you feeling more emotionally settled. Still, energies are tricky today and tomorrow, particularly related to matters of respect, ownership, or methods. It can be a time when people are touchy, sensitive, and defensive, and they may not readily accept help or your input. You could feel you’re moving in different directions or talking about different things entirely. It may be better to accept that your feelings and beliefs are not necessarily going to harmonize with those of others just for now, and then try to work around that idea. Through intense interactions, however, you might feel the motivation to be your best. With some self-honesty, you might uncover desires you didn’t know you had. Look for clues for how to manage your resources better. You may be on the verge of a breakthrough idea about business and money matters.
