Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon continues in your spirit sector for most of the day, dear Aries, encouraging you to enjoy an optimistic perspective. A brief change of pace can be welcome, and you could be craving more freedom and space. Still, you may not even need a real direction to inspire you — you simply want to do something constructive. You may learn something that gives you a competitive edge or helps you move a project forward. A cycle begins today and lasts until January 13th, emphasizing empowerment through your stronger connection to your inner world. You can be especially productive in activities behind the scenes, and you may seek out some extra silence or time to yourself to regroup. These things help you build strength.
TaurusThe Moon continues to move through your intimacy sector for much of the day, dear Taurus, and you feel the need to connect more deeply to a person, project, or your innermost feelings. You may be solving a complex problem or uncovering a resource that helps you. It’s a time of the lunar cycle for pouring concentrated energy into something relevant or meaningful to you. There is a stronger sense of what is good for you rather than merely what you want or think you need. You’re also more attuned to your dreams, hopes, and connections. You’re beginning a cycle that lasts almost nine months, and you’ll be feeling more empowered through your contributions, networks, and happiness goals. It’s a time for gathering more strength through your connections and attending to imbalances if they’re glaring.
GeminiYou’re focusing on your social life or relationships today, dear Gemini, or you’re less inclined to want to go things alone. While there can be a tendency today to become easily deflated or frustrated, consider that the tension building within you has to do with a desire to grow and improve. Nevertheless, you know the value of getting practical things done, and it’s satisfying. While many ideas can go by the wayside, you’re more likely to follow through on the ones you’re coming up with now. A cycle lasting almost nine months begins today, bringing Juno to the top of your solar chart. You’ll find that a primary key to feeling powerful and in control is your attention to business, performance, and career during this period. You want to excel in your work, and you’re likely doing more managing or leading, which you take more seriously now.
CancerThe Moon spends much of the day in your work and health sector, dear Cancer, and you pay special attention to getting your daily affairs in order. You can be quite happy to make improvements to the problems that you see more clearly than usual. Juno begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, and it will stay in this area of your solar chart for almost nine months. This influence encourages you to feel more empowered through learning and developing your skills. Aim to seek ways to learn and study, not only for personal enjoyment but also for practical pursuits. You’ll find that your ability to recall and absorb information strengthens.
LeoWith the Moon in your sector of joy most of the day, dear Leo, you gravitate to activities that allow you to create, compete, or play. Constructive activities with someone special can figure strongly today. Someone or a relationship might motivate you to better yourself or do your best. Today’s energies can be fun but even better if you apply structure and assign meaning to your pleasures, such as a creative pursuit. Also today, you begin a cycle potentially excellent for research, self-understanding, and insight into close relationships or intimate needs. Lasting almost nine months, this cycle turns your attention to power dynamics and dependencies.
VirgoEmotional renewal is a stronger draw than usual today, dear Virgo, with the Moon continuing its transit of your solar fourth house for most of the day. While you’re not always focused today, you’re more inclined than usual to stick with tried-and-true methods. You may need some time to re-center yourself, but you might also be in the position to gain an advantage in your work. Also today, Juno moves into your opposite sign for an extended stay–until January 13th (almost nine months). This cycle is strong for bringing balance and equality to a partnership or to your life, in general. You recognize the power of your relationships or connect with others who gift you with an essential perspective on your life. It’s a potentially fabulous period for feeling more empowered through your connections. There may be some battles along the way, but this is a good cycle for sorting out issues of give and take.
LibraYou might enjoy some extra attention to the world of connections, communications, and learning today, dear Libra. The Moon spends most of the day in your communications sector, inspiring you to reach out and connect or seek the information you need. Still, you’re more aware of those things that ground you, make you feel secure, and keep you focused on the moment. Today’s energies are also favorable for learning something that gives you an edge in your pursuits. In the months ahead, you’ll be working toward a feeling of empowerment through improved work and routines. Getting on top of your daily affairs, work, and health can be satisfying and confidence-boosting.
ScorpioThe Moon spends most of the day in your resources sector, dear Scorpio, and you may want to get a handle on your money and things. You can be motivated to organize and tidy or otherwise simplify your life. Juno heads into your sector of joy for an extended stay of almost nine months. Exploring your creative urges or hobbies during this period can be empowering. This transit encourages you to share and enjoy yourself, connecting with your need to express yourself and spirit for play in the months ahead. A special relationship can also figure strongly.
SagittariusWith today’s Moon, you can feel a surge of emotional energy, dear Sagittarius. You could be feeling a little competitive with yourself, wanting to improve and advance. What direction to take may not be entirely clear just yet, however. However, constructive conversations are likely as the Moon harmonizes with Saturn. Your personal impact is strong, and you’re coming across authoritatively or responsibly. The Moon continues to visit your sign until late today. Your interest in improving your family and home life is strengthening with Juno’s move into your solar fourth house for a stay until mid-January. It’s a period for gaining a sense of personal empowerment through a better functioning domestic world.
CapricornYou continue to need extra time to and for yourself today, dear Capricorn. You can find more support and warmth by listening to your heart and deeper needs. You may feel as if the cosmos want you to keep a low profile for much of the day. Still, doing some sorting, particularly on practical levels, can be satisfying today. You may be taking care of loose ends on a financial or business matter. Aim to keep challenging or demanding people and situations at bay so that you can do some catch-up work or have a bit of a break. Late today, the Moon enters your sign, and you can feel a need for a stronger emotional connection to the world around you. You’re beginning a longer-term cycle that will last until January that’s strong for gaining a feeling of self-mastery through specialized learning and skills development. The desire to contribute something of value or specialize and learn a topic more deeply can be strong and a primary motivation!
AquariusYou might enjoy mapping out a long-term plan today, dear Aquarius. Benefits can come through teaming up with someone or pursuing a cause or personal interest. Someone might lean on you for support. Transits today divert your attention to networking, friendships, and connecting with your happiness goals. The motivation to improve your money, resources, and talents is strong with Juno moving out of your sign and into your solar second house today, where it will transit through to the end of the year and to January 13th of next. During this trend, feeling on top of your practical affairs contributes to a stronger sense of balance and personal power.
PiscesToday’s transits are strong for work, organization, and practical solutions to problems, dear Pisces. Still, you might try out a new way of handling emotions or family life that succeeds beyond your expectations. The need to search deep within yourself for peace and security emerges. Juno moves into your sign for a stay of almost nine months, boosting your desire and confidence to pursue your interests. This transit encourages taking the lead and proving your independence. Watch that you don’t put a wall around you in the process, but aim to experiment with ways to get the most from a feeling you’re in charge and control. A desire to reinvent yourself in some way can be substantial. This cycle encourages a more visible expression of personal power after a period when you may have been attending to your inner stores of courage.
