Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThis is a time to build and develop your new initiatives, dear Aries, and tomorrow’s New Moon can help push this theme forward. Changes of direction and focus are in store in the coming week, and it makes a lot of sense to clear your head today. It’s better not to make any final, important decisions or take on new ventures today because of a Balsamic Moon. Still, you might consider ways to improve your financial position or feelings of security, as tomorrow’s New Moon is a great time to make resolutions and set intentions along these lines. Today is strong for organizing your thoughts, enjoying memories, and gaining insight into past events. You’re likely to find it rather easy and natural to find channels for expressing your feelings, and you could enjoy a wonderful sense of relief to talk about certain issues that have been on your mind. While you can be a little willful with your ideas, you may very well be seeing things more clearly than others.
TaurusThe Moon is Balsamic today, dear Taurus, and this phase of the Moon turns us inward for valuable lessons. Since it precedes tomorrow’s New Moon in your sign, it’s an especially important time for you to review, reflect, and tap into your intuition. It’s a time of letting go or unwinding rather than winding up, innovating, or beginning new endeavors that are unlikely to get off the ground. Your attitude going into the cycle that begins tomorrow can help shape the year ahead, so do what you can to get into a proper headspace. In a few days, you’ll grow clearer and surer of where you’re heading, so take your time and take it easy today. Communications can help you sort things out, or organizing your thoughts seems particularly worthwhile today.
GeminiOn this day before a New Moon, it’s important not to jump into something new, dear Gemini. As well, it’s best not to keep yourself so busy that you have no time to reflect. Tomorrow’s New Moon can stir up awareness of a private matter or the need for more rest and some seclusion in the weeks ahead. The cycle ahead of you increases your focus on replenishment, healing, repair, relaxation, and contemplation. Today is potentially excellent for exploring your ideas, so be sure to find the time to let your mind wander safely. You’re filling up with ideas, and you might enjoy filling in some details of plans. Great ideas can also result through casual interactions with networks. As long as you allow yourself to go with the flow instead of trying to push the pace, you’ll be in a great emotional place now.
CancerThe Balsamic Moon today points to the need to decompress, dear Cancer. With tomorrow’s New Moon and a new cycle ahead of us, we are symbolically in the dark today. It’s best to aim to reflect, tie up loose ends, and let go of what you no longer need (or want) as you prepare for new beginnings. Be careful that you don’t speak about a matter prematurely today, but do pay attention to what you’re picking up, particularly related to work and business. In the coming week, your interests are likely to shift, but observations made today can be golden. You are moving in a new direction with less concern about your performance and status and more interest in your personal happiness, the people around you, and your place in your community or network. Communications can be lively and stimulating, as well as refreshingly open.
LeoThe Moon is Balsamic today, dear Leo, pointing to the need to take the time to contemplate, reflect on the past, and consider changes you’d like to make in the future. Tomorrow’s New Moon can shift your attention and signal a time for starting fresh. Today is good for recognizing which projects, lines of study, or attitudes you’re better off without. You’re inclined to do quite a bit of thinking now. It’s a good idea to aim to relax and take part in activities that help you to symbolically clear the slate or let go of things you no longer need. Take time to catch your breath before the upcoming cycle in which you are far more visible, influential, and accountable than usual. Even so, today’s energies are gently stimulating for social and romantic matters. It can be natural to clear the air without too much in the way of drama. There can be a chance to learn from past mistakes or to put a problem behind you. Light learning and sharing are favored.
VirgoToday’s energies are good for letting your mind wander when it’s safe and appropriate to do so, dear Virgo. It’s not yet the time to take action or to begin anew because a New Moon is just ahead. Still, this is a fine day for putting something that’s been weighing you down or standing in the way of personal growth behind you. You might naturally pull yourself back from the world just a little so that you can collect yourself and make space for positive new energy to enter your life. The Sun has just recently entered your spirit sector, gently encouraging you to learn new things, but it’s the New Moon tomorrow that seals the deal and helps you move forward. Today favors contemplation and observation, and you might choose to lay low in some way or pull yourself out of regular activities to connect with your deeper needs and desires. While you are inclined to be a little introspective, the day is nevertheless good for communication. Generally, though, it’s a good time to slow down and pace yourself, and you’ll find that things fall into place as you do.
LibraThe Moon is in its Balsamic phase today with a New Moon just ahead of us, dear Libra. This is an ideal time for tying up loose ends, reflecting on recent events, and letting go of that which has run its course. It’s not the best time for beginning a whole new project since a shift is happening now. Today is strong for sorting out your thoughts and observing what’s going on around you. Still, if you can find a way to get away from it all, even if it’s about exploring an interest or enjoying a book or movie, it’s a good idea to do so. Keep a low profile and prepare for changes in interest, focus, and direction, which are sure to come over the next few days. Communications happening now can serve to help you center and pace yourself. Even though you may not be at your peak energetically speaking, this can be a fine time for pleasant conversations. Another person’s perspective, even if it diverges from yours significantly, tends to enhance your own today.
ScorpioDo what you can to relax and reflect today, dear Scorpio, as the Moon is Balsamic, and it’s best to let go and loosen up than wind yourself up. You can have some great thinking or communicating sessions now, but the picture is incomplete, and you should resist any pressure to put everything together. Allowing the pieces to unfold naturally will work more in your favor. Communication can help center you and relieve your mind regarding some of your troubles or concerns, especially related to health and work. Tomorrow’s New Moon can encourage fundamental changes in your relationships and the possibility of new beginnings. You’re likely to be pulled in a new direction or towards a new, enlightened perspective in the coming days. Today, slow down, reminisce, and reflect. Still, as you do, you may very well come up with unique methods of doing work, managing health and well-being, and handling chores.
SagittariusWe’re just a day shy of a New Moon, dear Sagittarius, making it better to wind down than up. Taking some of the pressure off makes sense. If possible, aim for enjoyable, quiet, and pressure-free activities as you prepare for an upcoming busy period. Work, routines, habits, and health are the themes coming into sharper focus and power. Today is useful for reflecting upon the improvements you’ve made in your life regarding leisure, romance, and playtime. In preparation for the new cycle beginning tomorrow, you might envision goals related to your daily routines and health. The Moon spends the day in your creative sector, which can be emotionally freeing in some ways. You are coming across quite charmingly in your communications, and you need some leeway and room for spontaneity. Look for ways to relieve stress, and pay close attention to communications that might point you in the right direction towards healing.
CapricornToday is better for coming to peace with yourself and recent events than for revving yourself up for new activities, dear Capricorn. Still, considering what you want to improve is highly favored. Interests and direction can shift after tomorrow’s New Moon, and what you start today may not come to pass or hold weight. Today is best for reflection or tying up loose ends rather than entirely new initiatives. Reflecting upon the progress you’ve made with family and with domestic matters in general over the past few weeks is especially appropriate as the Moon aligns with Mercury in your sector of home and family. It’s a great “ideas” day, particularly about your personal life and long-term plans to boost your feelings of security or family. For some, there can be pleasant conversations that soothe and help you center yourself.
AquariusToday’s energies favor reflection, light conversation, and observation, dear Aquarius. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, and this means we are symbolically in the dark at present. While it’s a good time for putting outworn attitudes, bad habits, and overwhelming projects behind you, today’s not ideal for brand new initiatives that you want to last, grow, and prosper over time. There can be a real buzz of ideas with you today nonetheless, but don’t feel pressured to make sense of it all as there are still some missing puzzle pieces. You are looking forward to a more home or family-focused time. Today, your charm shines through your communications and gestures. There can be relief about sharing a particular topic now, or you could be a go-between helping others to come to a compromise or state of peace.
PiscesNew interests and directions are on the horizon now, dear Pisces, with tomorrow’s New Moon bringing new energy to your life for learning, sharing, and connecting. Today, it’s better to reflect, review, and let go. You might also consider what you’d like to improve and change in the upcoming cycle, but do yourself a favor and find the time to catch your breath today. The Moon aligns with Mercury, inclining you to think and analyze or communicate more than usual. Playing around with ideas is an enjoyable, light-hearted experience if there’s no pressure to arrive at a decision or conclusion. Aim to seek out activities and perspectives that nurture positive self-worth and self-perception. It can be a happy time to build upon what you have rather than urgently seek something new to do.
