Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile much of the day you’re inward-focus, dear Aries, the Moon moves into your sign later today, and you crave more interaction. Doing the same old thing doesn’t suffice–you can feel a bit restless if stuck in the same routine. The Moon in your sign brings you out of your shell and more in tune with your feelings. It’s best to keep your eyes and ears open as you stand to learn a lot by doing so. Later today and tomorrow, you’re in a sharing mood. There can be a tendency to overdo pleasures or spending. You’ll do well today if you avoid making too-big promises.
TaurusThe Moon continues to transit your social sector for much of the day, dear Taurus, but later moves into the sign behind yours, at which point you’ll do well to pause your busy schedule. Aim to enjoy the over two days with ambitions moving to the back burner. Emotionally, it’s time to heal, digest, process, and decompress. The wavering of a previously held belief can be disheartening but can also motivate you to move along a new path of discovery and learning. Rigidity of thinking now will not serve you well. Keep things simple and moderate, and aim to discern between true desire and desire that stems from inner discontent.
GeminiFulfillment today can involve getting creative in giving voice to inner yearning, dear Gemini. If you’re not in touch, you could feel restless and tense. In truth, you are looking for a bit more meaning in your life. Recognize and honor this need for the best results now. Consider that you may be pulling out boundaries, and others could see an opening for taking advantage of your good heart. Take care of your own light while sharing yourself within reason with others. It’s a good day for chatting and exchanging information, and not so strong for important launches.
CancerYour mood for adventure and variety continues today, dear Cancer, but the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, drawing out your more serious or responsible side. The Moon’s two-day transit here is good for getting back on track. Inner unrest later today is possible, although you can turn it into something positive if you put the effort forward. Avoid investing too much in the promises and responses of others — people can be impractical and could be shooting too high temporarily. The key to balance is taking charge of your own happiness instead of waiting for someone else to make you happy.
LeoA reflective mood continues today, but the desire to get out and about or to focus on your broader goals takes over as the day advances, dear Leo. It’s best to look within yourself for happiness and satisfaction, as people around you can be enthusiastic but may not be consistent. Taming expectations doesn’t mean expecting less than respect–it means you’ll be better off giving everyone space and allowing events to unfold naturally. If expectations are too high, disappointment can follow, and there’s no need to set yourself up for negative feelings. Freedom is a keyword now. You have more visibility and emotional clarity.
VirgoThe Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector much of the day, dear Virgo, and the focus is on balance and harmony. Later today, you begin to seek out a little more intensity. Emotions are complicated but relatively easy to channel into enjoyable activities. Still, there can be a tendency to overdo, and it will be important not to make promises that seem okay right now but can later turn into aggravations or burdens. Refraining from buying on credit or lending/borrowing is best, as you can be temporarily short-sighted under current transits.
LibraA focus on the details or your work continues today, dear Libra, but the Moon’s move into your partnership sector later today draws you to your social life. Even though events may not unfold exactly as planned today, you’re in a mostly flowing mood, and very little can truly get you down today, except perhaps routine! Fortunately, the day’s energies are anything but routine, so you’ll likely experience a mix of feelings and circumstances. Variety appeals, and seeing the world from a broad perspective satisfies the most. Take charge of your happiness rather than waiting for someone else to fill that job.
ScorpioWhile the day holds some moody energy, dear Scorpio, you’re enjoying some variety today. You continue to tune into your needs for leisure, play, and entertainment or creativity for much of the day. But the Moon’s move into your work and health sector later today turns your attention to practical affairs. It’s best to keep your plans fairly open and your expectations realistic. The only safe route today is to stay centered and avoid expecting too much from regular things and people. The tendency to overdo or even overstate is strong under current transits, but keeping things moderate will serve you much better.
SagittariusQuiet activities continue to figure strongly as the Moon finishes its transit of your home and family sector today, dear Sagittarius. You’re in a “settling in” frame of mind much of today, and it’s probably for the best because entirely new projects and commitments are not recommended, just for now. It’s a good time for getting comfortable and enjoying some self-pampering if possible, but avoid going overboard if you know you’ll regret it later. The Moon heads into your creativity sector, and you’re more interested in sharing yourself with others. You could feel a little restless as if life is calling you, but you don’t know exactly what for! Try to identify what is real and what is simply a reflection of inner discontent. Avoid beginning new projects now for the best results.
CapricornYou can be busy but unfocused much of the day, dear Capricorn, as the Moon finishes up its transit of your communications sector. Later today, you crave more quiet, comfort, and familiarity. Spending may not be wise today, as it’s easy to go overboard. Your tastes are running into exotic or expensive territory. You might say or promise too much. The intention behind it is likely good, but once your current enthusiasm fades, you may not be up to the task. Avoid important new endeavors today, but enjoy yourself within reasonable boundaries for the best results.
AquariusThe Moon’s transit of your solar second house keeps you in a practical frame of mind for much of the day, dear Aquarius. You prefer to keep things status quo, which is helpful with current transits that seem to push overdoing things! Later today, things pick up the pace. The Moon heads into your communications sector, and your curiosity leads you. Conversations can be pleasing. Social and learning opportunities are emerging, but it’s important today that you don’t go too far, and this is especially so for adding new projects or responsibilities to your life. Without even knowing it, you could be misleading others simply because you want to do more than you’re realistically able to manage. Letting things flow and keeping everything moderate are the keys to staying evenly and naturally happy today.
PiscesYou continue to pay more attention to your emotional needs for much of today, dear Pisces. Do what you can to focus on activities that refresh your senses and renew your emotions. Your feelings take the lead. Later today, you’re steadier and more content–more inclined to stick with familiar and comfortable settings and activities. Still, there can be some restlessness in the air. Take note of whatever you don’t communicate or put into motion because it’s an excellent time for new insights. Aim to be an intelligent observer today and avoid jumping into something all-new.
