Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou have many personal interests going, dear Aries, but your responsibilities and duties beckon, and you can feel quite torn. As much as you want to get the essential things out of the way, it can be hard to do with your heart not quite in it. Consider that you might see a situation in a more positive or negative light than it deserves. As well, you may want to avoid putting too much into what others promise since judgment can be off today. While this may not be the most productive day, you’re feeling quite excited about your projects. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, prompting a focus on your friendships or goals related to happiness and enjoyment. Consider that your words are more potent than usual. Fortunately, you’re in a cycle that finds you with a real knack for communicating.
TaurusToday’s energies find you more concerned than usual with your obligations and goals, dear Taurus. However, some indecision is likely due to a Venus-Jupiter influence that highlights restlessness. You could have many different ideas in play right now, but with the energies of the day, you may not be in any mood to focus. Venus is in your second house of values, money, and possessions, and Jupiter’s influence can exaggerate your desires for things that might not have true value to you in the long term. Try to treat these as whims and fancies of the moment. There might also be a conflict of values that gets under your skin if someone’s opinions bother you. Try to unwind and avoid clinging too tightly to your expectations. Fortunately, another influence today improves practical thinking. You’re willing to work for what you want.
GeminiThere is a stronger focus on your needs, desires, and wants with Venus in your sign, dear Gemini. At the same time, you’re not just pining for things–you’re ready to work for them. Still, today can find you on the fence about pursuing your personal plans as you can need extra rest. A good part of you craves the comforts of familiarity. Draw upon your common sense as much as possible now and avoid the temptation to think that the grass is greener somewhere else. Expectations that are too high may not do you any favors right now. Try not to make bold or big moves. Today’s Moon transit highlights your need for non-routine experiences, and you don’t have to go overboard to satisfy this itch. If you can focus your energies, there is terrific energy with you for tying up loose ends of a project, or for reviewing what you need to do next. Feeling organized is the key to feeling on top of things at the moment.
CancerThere can be moments today when you’re focusing more on the big picture than the details at hand, dear Cancer, and perhaps missing essential things in the process. Part of you doesn’t feel up to dealing with anything difficult or tricky right now. The easy way out seems most appealing with a Venus-Jupiter transit. Leniency with others may be taken a little too far, and boundaries may be crossed. It can be difficult to know whether you want some space or companionship. Consider that a temporary lull may be just what you need before getting back on track. Fortunately, a helpful conversation can emerge when you least expect it. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, encouraging you to pay more attention to your deeper needs.
LeoWhile you’re finding your friendships or networking quite fulfilling now, dear Leo, your desire to get on top of your chores or your work can be compelling. This can leave you on the fence or feeling that you’re not going to have fun if you make a choice. There is an escapist or avoidant tendency today as Venus and Jupiter form a minor clashing aspect. You can feel restless with routines, and you don’t feel up for drama or demanding situations, either. Do what you can to lighten your load just for now and consider choosing something and running with it rather than getting stuck in a state of discontent or limbo. Fortunately, a Mercury-Vesta aspect helps you focus. You’re likely to appreciate that communications are clearer than usual.
VirgoWhile this is not a good day for staying within a budget or for productivity, dear Virgo, if your load is light, it can certainly be a pleasant time. There can be some satisfying exchanges, too. Certainly, with the Moon transiting your work-and-health sector all day, you’ll want to accomplish something concrete. You can be very generous with your time and energy, but not especially practical as Venus and Jupiter form a minor challenging aspect. Personal needs tend to win over responsibilities now, even though you very much want to get things done, and for the most part, enjoy doing so. The issue is that you’re divided, and it can be hard to choose one or the other. Still, there is good energy with you today for uncovering a mystery or settling a debt or account.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your sector of joy and pleasure, dear Libra, boosting your desire for recreation or self-expression. It’s a good day for unwinding, but it may be best to avoid making big promises when you’re feeling especially optimistic as you may be overshooting. You might instead decide to do what you can, and avoid getting too wound up if you don’t quite reach the mark today. A Venus-Jupiter minor challenging aspect tends to stir up some restlessness or can leave you feeling divided. Later today, competition can motivate you to improve your game in a particular pursuit. A discussion or clarification can be beneficial, particularly about a partnership or with a partner.
ScorpioThe Moon in your family and home sector all day suggests a stronger than usual need for comfort, dear Scorpio. Still, you are easy to distract today! Your mood is generally quite positive, but there is some tendency for discontent to be more pronounced with a Venus-Jupiter aspect stimulating the fear of missing out. Be especially aware of a tendency to people-please since promises made now can be difficult to fulfill later. There is a temptation to apply band-aid fixes to problem areas, which is a form of borrowing from the future since the problem will return later on, perhaps in a bigger way. Avoid glossing over difficult areas, but recognize where you may need a break. It can be challenging to know whether you want to go light or deep today, and perhaps it’s best to do a little of both.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Sagittarius, stimulating your curiosity and your need for light and easygoing exchanges. The temptation to overspend or overindulge can be with you now as a Venus-Jupiter aspect can blur your understanding of your actual needs. Watch for a tendency to focus on everything but the most important thing on your agenda, but if you genuinely need a break, find the way to take the time for it. Procrastination can increase stress levels, so consider whether it’s worth it. Today’s energies can also affect relationships since it can be hard to please not only yourself but others around you. Still, conversations can be productive once you find the chance to focus. It’s a good time to apply yourself to a creative project.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Capricorn, and you crave some stability. A Venus-Jupiter transit can leave you feeling torn about where to put your energies and direct your attention, and with this indecision, you may end up getting very little accomplished. It may not be a strong day for productivity, largely due to emotions that leave you feeling a bit worn out or lazy. It’s better to approach things one step at a time because feeling overwhelmed is quite possible now and can lead to avoidance and procrastination. A Mercury-Vesta aspect comes into play later today, and it’s most excellent for directing your attention to your priorities. It can be fun to be thorough with this influence. You might enjoy crafting a plan of action. Family matters or goals can fuel your desire to improve.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Aquarius, and you give more power to your emotional needs today. This Moon transit is good for expressing your feelings in satisfying ways. You can feel particularly pumped up about a creative, pleasurable, or romantic pursuit, but your expectations might be so high that you end up looking for something that the world can’t serve you at the moment. Promises made today can be hard to keep later because people do not see their capabilities clearly under the influence of a Venus-Jupiter clash. Others may be stepping over your boundaries today, or you may be receiving mixed messages, and your imagination can be more misleading than it is supportive. If you need to get essential things done, try to tune out as much of the uncertainty as you can. While you may be procrastinating a little, you can also be quite determined to handle a problem area. A practically helpful conversation can figure strongly.
PiscesYour heart is very much with your home, dear Pisces, but today’s energies suggest some restlessness. There can be a tendency to indulge or enable as Venus and Jupiter form a minor challenging aspect. It can be tempting to take shortcuts so as to smooth over problems or give yourself a break, but these may be costlier in the long run. If you discover that you’re not equipped to deal with problems right now, resolve to come back to them on a less emotional and more logical day. As lazy as you can feel in spots today, another influence is helping you focus. The trick is to find something you truly enjoy. Being thorough in one activity can be most satisfying. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, making it especially important to take the time to rest and process your feelings. You have a high need for the kind of emotional refreshment that comes through time spent on reflection.
