Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesAs the Moon transits your sign today and tomorrow, dear Aries, you command attention. Your increased desire for independence and forward motion can feel at odds with your recent drive for more comfort and predictability today. Still, if you pace yourself, you’ll find ways to satisfy both needs. You could find yourself between others’ dilemmas, or pressures from family may figure strongly. However, as the day advances, it’s easier to wind down or wind up in a focused manner, whichever suits your purposes and mood best. Keep in mind that with a Solar Eclipse coming soon, the next few days, in a general sense, are better for tying up loose ends than for brand-new endeavors. Later today and into tomorrow, you’re in great shape for coordinating your daily routines and home life. You enjoy a new way of looking at your work, services, and health, and you can feel inspired to take better care of yourself.
TaurusThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your privacy sector, dear Taurus, and much is happening under the surface of things. You could retreat somewhat from the demands of daily life with this brief transit, keeping some things to yourself. You can be less accessible for the time being to reorient yourself. Nevertheless, with the Moon’s square to Mars today, it can be tough to relax at times. It can be hard to turn your mind off enough to rest, perhaps because your mind is in overdrive, but it’s better if you do! The overthinking may well be a wild goose chase. While your spirit for discovery is active, you may also need time to sort out your feelings and experiences. Later today and into tomorrow, an open approach to your communications and connections figures strongly and is rewarding. You’re in fine shape for guiding, learning, advising, and teaching. People are drawn to you and your ideas. It’s a good time to expand your mind and connect with others through the mind.
GeminiWith the Moon in your social sector today and tomorrow, dear Gemini, you’re in a fraternizing frame of mind. Still, there can be some frustrations with the Moon’s square to Mars. You can feel blocked from–or indecisive about–pursuing your desires. However, you would do well to conserve energy until you have the confidence to go full speed ahead. You may need to cut your losses regarding a matter and aim to start fresh. Try to avoid jumping ahead on new projects if you still need to complete the ones already in progress. Later today, you could feel great about settling in and enjoying yourself. Relaxing and detoxing come more naturally, and it’s good for you!
CancerWork or duty demands your attention today, dear Cancer, but you’re susceptible to distractions as you struggle with where to devote your energies. There can be a fear of missing out when you apply your energies to the tasks at hand. Indeed, your responsibilities and reputation are special concerns with the Moon at the top of your solar chart. While you should bother yourself with what others expect of you to some degree at this time of the lunar month, there is no need to overdo this beyond what you can realistically manage. Later today, a new way of looking at your life, projects, and friends can benefit you greatly. It’s a powerful time for communicating and connecting.
LeoWith the Moon in your spirit sector, the broader issues that concern you come into play today and tomorrow, dear Leo. Seeing the bigger picture can comfort you, but there can be some tension today as you wonder what lies ahead. There is also a tendency for quick reactions or frustrations with differences of opinion. While it’s unlikely to be a huge problem, it’s probably best not to complicate matters further by juggling too much. Downtime is important with Mars in your solar twelfth, but you should also make room for a change of pace or something new to engage your mind and refresh your spirit. It makes sense to clear out the decks now with a Solar Eclipse on its way. Later today, you’re in better shape for preparing, building inner strength, and reflecting or enjoying more solitude. It’s a time for better understanding your vulnerabilities or limitations, and self-acceptance is both a goal and reward.
VirgoIt’s an important couple of days for self-discovery, dear Virgo, with the Moon in your solar eighth house and a Solar Eclipse soon to occur. You’re making valuable connections and understanding your desires and motivations more intimately. There can be some tension if someone brings up an issue that leaves you feeling insecure or left to fill in the blanks. It’s fine to guard your feelings a little, but avoiding jumping to conclusions is best. It may be that you need to gather up your energy and think more carefully before going forward with important projects. Later today and tomorrow, lively exchanges can inspire you and renew your spirit.
LibraYou’re mainly interested in finding a balance or keeping the peace today and tomorrow, dear Libra. It can be challenging and even exhausting to reach a compromise today, however. You might feel overwhelmed by career matters or responsibilities, but you also have difficulty pulling yourself away. It may be best to change your focus. Later today, you find it more natural to find moments to detox, relax, decompress, and detach. As you pay more attention to your mental and emotional health, you feel stronger in your pursuits or experience more meaningfulness and purpose in your responsibilities. With a Solar Eclipse soon to occur, it’s best to wind down rather than rev up in a general sense this week.
ScorpioThere’s a useful focus on your skills, everyday affairs, duties, and routines today and tomorrow, dear Scorpio. Watch for a tendency to rush something or succumb to pressures to get too much done quickly today. It can be challenging to focus, which comes down to feeling torn between the desire for more life experience and the need to figure out details. It’s better to put some order in your daily affairs before moving your bigger plans ahead, and you’re ready to accept this later today. You see new ways of doing things that make your daily affairs or duties more enjoyable. It’s also a good time for instruction, guidance, advice, teaching, and sharing ideas.
SagittariusYou’re expressing your beliefs and ideas with more faith and enthusiasm, dear Sagittarius. The Moon spends today and tomorrow in your romance and creativity sector, and early on the 20th, a Solar Eclipse will occur in this same area of your solar chart. You have resolutions to make about your commitment to creativity, pleasure, love, and leisure time! Today, a Moon-Mars square might leave you feeling torn between applying yourself to a challenging project or problem and enjoying some free time. You might waver between trusting someone or something on the one hand and questioning motives on the other. Later today, you can gain valuable insight or a boost of confidence. You’re looking at your life path, relationships, and projects in new ways, with more affection. You can enjoy more meaning and purpose as a result.
CapricornThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your home and family sector, dear Capricorn, and you’re paying particular attention to your needs for comfort and familiarity. You’re prioritizing emotional needs and replenishment. It’s an important time to explore new feelings and ideas with a Solar Eclipse soon to occur in this area of your solar chart. Domestic or internal improvements, changes, and renovations can be in focus. However, today’s Moon-Mars square can bring some frustrations to the surface through your interactions with a partner or significant someone. If you aim to use excess energy positively, you can feel a burning desire to sort things out. Later today, it’s far easier to smooth things over. You might enjoy alternative or extracurricular activities with someone special. A partnership can be a source of inspiration.
AquariusThe Moon spends today and tomorrow in your communications sector, dear Aquarius, and you’re mentally busy, seeking news, information, and stimulation. The Moon’s square to Mars today can signal an equal interest in personal pursuits and duties, but it’s important not to overdo. If you’re overreaching, it can feel very chaotic today. Instead, you might feel on edge with concerns about problem areas related to work and health issues, finding it hard to get much done with your attention so very divided. Try to tune out some of the extras for the best results. Later today, you find it far easier to find a balance. You might look at your efforts, work, services, and chores differently–with more enjoyment.
PiscesWith the Moon in your solar second house today and tomorrow, dear Pisces, emotional needs feel less urgent, freeing you up to focus on other concerns. You’re innovative with money matters, work, and routines. There can be some tension over a financial or ownership issue today, and if you’re feeling competitive, use this energy to work for you. Watch for rushing or impatience in handling needs and desires. Look for opportunities that arise due to your confidence in your talents in the weeks ahead. You attract others through your words and ideas, and you might boost a connection through increased attention to creativity, imagination, and recreation. Your faith in your creative output or romantic life is building.
