Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can enjoy the increased personal magnetism today, dear Aries. You are more able to put plans into motion or to pursue your desires. Even with Mercury newly retrograde, talking things through is helpful, and you’ll find others quite supportive. Allowing and exercising more freedom in your relationships is essential now. Working from or on the home can be successful. Your appeal is natural today and is especially high through your pleasing communications and gestures. Ideas generated today can be inspired, but not yet well-rounded. The Moon’s move into your communications sector is lively, encouraging your curiosity and interactivity.
TaurusIt comes naturally to focus on the more positive elements of your life today, dear Taurus. Practical matters can thrive, and there can be good news, or good support, on the level of health and wellness. Today is excellent for putting new spins on old ideas, as well as for renewed interests and finding something valuable to you that you’d lost. Creative thinking figures strongly, particularly related to finances. You may need to contend with some up-in-the-air elements, however, such as unfinished projects or changes in plans. Still, you readily make the best of things today, and even if there are misunderstandings, you seem to relay your good intentions in your discussions.
GeminiYou are a little braver, more willing to go out on a limb to move something forward, and inclined to express yourself confidently today, dear Gemini. Mars is in parallel aspect with Venus, currently transiting your sign, and there can be fantastic opportunities to enjoy yourself. Personal plans or pursuits can capture (or recapture) your interest, and you can have much fun with them. Of course, old problems may emerge now, but resolving them can lift a burden from you, and life feels that much easier as a result. Take advantage of situations that allow you to express your inner child, for friendly competition, and for finding support and nurturing in unexpected places. It’s a good time for personal attraction and positive for possible gifts or windfalls.
CancerYour sense of timing helps you be more effective today, dear Cancer. You are ready to take the initiative. Others more readily support you and place their confidence in you as they recognize your sincerity. There is good energy for personal and family matters as a new freedom is afforded you. Relationships energize you today, and you can feel particularly motivated to get what you want or to pursue your desires. Personal appeal is strong, although you can also be a little retiring with the Moon’s move into your privacy sector. This move signals the need for more rest and reflection today and tomorrow.
LeoYou have more courage and energy today, dear Leo. Your charisma is strong, although with Mars in your privacy sector, it’s a little more mysterious than usual –you’re keeping some things to yourself, or at least coming across that way.

Helping others can be satisfying, as you can feel especially good about responding to others’ needs and wants and doing what you can to support them. There can be new passions or a reawakening of interests today, and it’s exciting. If you can tame impatience today, this can be an excellent time for a relationship boost. Still, with Mercury newly retrograde, take your time with new projects or buying big items to be sure you maintain interest in these things. A change of mind or circumstance is possible.

LibraGood energy is with you on a personal level, dear Libra. Others receive you especially well, and you feel you can take on anything.

There can be some opportunities for pleasure and enjoyment emerging now, and you’ll have better luck with them if you aim to let go of the tendency to overthink. It remains a good idea not to push something new with Mercury newly retrograde, but it’s a fine time for a positive outlook.
ScorpioToday’s transits are strong for going after what you desire with increased charm and warmth, dear Scorpio. You are a little freer with the expression of your feelings, and your sense of humor is appealing. It’s also a strong time for lending a hand and accepting a hand–taking action with someone or seeking feedback can be rewarding. It’s also a good time to do something different and non-routine. Watch that you don’t jump to conclusions or decisions with Mercury newly retrograde. However, creative interactions can figure strongly, and lively exchanges are satisfying. You’re seeking a better balance inside and out, and you owe it to yourself to go there. Fortunately, influences today help build your confidence and improve your outlook. Relationship boosts can be a happy bonus.
SagittariusRelationships and interactions can be spontaneous, freeing, and positive with friends or a partner today, dear Sagittarius. Interchanges are lively. Creative ideas can be inspired and unusual but not yet well-formed. With Mercury newly retrograde, it makes sense to give things time, but you’re in great shape to enjoy the creative opportunities coming your way.

You can be filled with a need to create, connect, and share, and some of your motivation can be to capture someone’s interest. You may get a chance to bring increased creativity to problem-solving or your work. Your sense of timing is strong, and you’re more determined than usual to make things happen.
