Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may discover that shared goals, interests, and philosophies are more apparent today, dear Aries. However, with a Mercury-Saturn square aspect early today, you could be dealing with delays or blocks. Missed or misunderstood messages and instructions can be part of this. Social worries or concerns could be in focus. More often than not, managing small problems can lead to valuable new findings and possibly to unexpected improvements and advances. As the day advances, things turn around. A Mercury-Neptune aspect can help soften the edges. Private time, even in small doses, enables you to tap into your intuition. It can motivate you to make inner changes as your values and interests evolve. You might uncover a resource or information that benefits you greatly. Because you can read others’ intentions and motivations or feelings, relationships can get a boost.
TaurusYou can feel directed and purposeful in many ways today, dear Taurus. However, Mercury forms a tense square with Saturn early today, suggesting delays or disconnects can slow things down or frustrate you. People may be sensitive or not as quick to catch on as you, so watch that you don’t talk ahead of yourself. There can be blocks to manage before things move along smoothly. Try to avoid spending too much time in a state of tension and work on correcting errors one step at a time. Fortunately, a Mercury-Neptune transit loosens up this energy as the day advances. Combining the practical and imaginative comes naturally to you. You gravitate towards peaceful and calming situations and conversations, and your more easygoing and likable qualities are in the spotlight. More than usual, others appreciate your insight, and you can inspire or gather inspiration from your friends and connections. The excitement of a budding project can also fill you with enthusiasm.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Gemini, and you seek inspiration or an interesting focal point. However, communications can be tricky early today, and missed connections, delays, and minor mishaps may interrupt your day. Still, they can also lead to detours that work to your benefit. Consider that even irritating feedback can motivate positive changes. Aim to make an extra effort to get over the more minor problems and challenges, as annoying as they can be. As the day advances, life feels much smoother. It’s easier to let things flow as Mercury, your ruler, harmonizes with Neptune. You can express ideas or feelings that you can’t always find words for, and your intuition for your next step is strong. Ideally, you can better understand your past and your deeper feelings about recent events. Opening your mind to possibilities benefits you now.
CancerTricky energy on mental levels can figure strongly early today, dear Cancer. It may not be easy to get a point across–there can be problems either with the delivery of the message or how it’s received! People can be touchy with Mercury’s square to Saturn, or many small things can go wrong, related primarily to communication delays or breakdowns. Ideally, irritations can spur you to make constructive changes. It’s probably best to slow down and sidestep the unnecessary stress of indecision if possible. Fortunately, a Mercury-Neptune aspect later today can help smooth rough edges. Communications with friends or networks can be more engaging or imaginative than usual. You might enjoy tapping into a feeling of acceptance, and as you do, your thoughts or words are more flowing, natural, and compassionate. What and how you communicate can encourage others to open up, and you might inspire and help someone out. There can be a breakthrough of sorts in your spiritual understanding today.
LeoEarly today, a Mercury-Saturn square can point to the need to clear up problems, dear Leo. With this aspect in play, you may not feel you’re getting anywhere in spite of a lot of effort, but correcting errors and fixing problems can help you in the long run. New revelations now can be annoying but lead to helpful improvements. It makes sense to go gently with others and yourself. Accepting that there are obstacles to understanding one another today can help. As the day advances, a Mercury-Neptune transit smooths things over. Barriers tend to fall away in your conversations, which can be refreshing. You’re in good shape for guiding, teaching, and empathizing. You’re likely to gain valuable insights into important people in your life and your ambitions or goals. Aim to try to let go of overthinking.
VirgoYou can be in the right frame of mind for attention to detail today, dear Virgo. However, there can be criticisms or flaws in focus early today with Mercury square Saturn. Chores or responsibilities can hold you back, and they can seem more challenging to manage than usual. Adjustments may be necessary before you regain confidence in a project. Fortunately, you can see the opportunities, not only the flaws, blocks, and delays, and it becomes more natural as the day advances. Helping with this is a Mercury-Neptune aspect, as it opens you up to interesting insights. If there’s a chance to bond through shared opinions or acceptance of differences, it’s a great time to do so. You can feel particularly good about your ideas or plans. Conversations, writing, or musings and thoughts can help you heal. Today is strong for generating new ideas and putting faith in your long-term goals. When you understand where others are coming from, your relationships get a boost.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, stirring your need to express and enjoy yourself, dear Libra. However, a Mercury-Saturn square early today can leave you feeling too vulnerable to deal with outside pressures. Temporarily, it may be best to sidestep situations that might involve a confrontation or intense demands on your time and energy. If circumstances slow you down, it could be a blessing in disguise, prompting you to make beneficial adjustments. Aim to put problems behind you for good. Helping you do so is a Mercury-Neptune sextile later today. It eases self-expression and enhances your imagination. With this transit, you’re more receptive to the subtle things in your life. Focusing on emotional or spiritual priorities can open up doors that previously seemed closed. An open-hearted conversation or healing thoughts can figure strongly now. Your willingness to change is endearing you to others, and it’s easier to put everything together and get a fuller picture.
ScorpioThis can be a day for special attention to home and family, your support system, and personal matters, dear Scorpio. However, with Mercury square Saturn influencing early today, domestic or personal issues pressures can weigh you down temporarily. There may be a mental disconnect with someone close to you. Saving important topics for a better time, which can be as early as later today, can be a good idea. Communication breakdowns are temporary, and it’s best to strive to treat them as such. It may be a little tricky to discipline yourself if your heart’s not into what you’re doing. However, it can be worth it to apply yourself to get over a hump. Fortunately, a Mercury-Neptune transit helps soften the rough edges as the day advances. The healing power of art and music can be in focus. This transit makes it natural to let go of overthinking. Accepting and enjoying differences with important people in your life is key to this. Communications can bring pleasure or unexpected opportunities.
SagittariusA Mercury-Saturn square early today can point to some tendency to see the glass half empty, dear Sagittarius. This transit can act to magnify limitations. It’s a temporary and quite useful process since it helps us find flaws, but it can be a bit disheartening. It’s probably better to focus on practical problems that need fixing and stay on watch for communication issues. However, a Mercury-Neptune transit can help smooth things over as the day advances. It’s particularly helpful for intuitive insights into health or work matters. You could find yourself agreeing with a significant other, and conversations seem to flow beautifully. It’s an excellent time to seek or gravitate to projects or topics that inspire you. Once you can tap into this energy, you’re likely to enjoy some mental refreshment, which can do wonders for you. You might find that letting go of the pressure to come to a conclusion or decision improves everything, even your practical affairs, which can benefit from added imagination and intuition.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Capricorn, and you seek some stability and comfort. However, a Mercury-Saturn square early today can point to a misunderstanding, communication block, or mental disconnect. Responses can be critical or lacking when you need them, or concerns about money can burst your bubble. It’s not the time to take a big chance, but it’s helpful energy for resolving various minor problems or pending issues. It’s far easier to see the pleasant side of things as the day advances with a Mercury-Neptune transit easing conversations and encouraging a nice flow to your thoughts. If you give yourself to the process, creative writing or artistic expression can flourish. Recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and art or music can figure strongly and help relax and inspire you. You communicate with more style, color, or sensitivity. There can be benefits to your business or projects through word of mouth, or good reviews provide a boost. You find it easier to let go of frustrations, and with less pressure, your thinking is more intuitive.
AquariusYou’re a self-starter today, dear Aquarius. However, a Mercury-Saturn square early today can find you dwelling on things that you can’t change. Flaws can seem to magnify temporarily. Aim to reflect on what you reasonably can do, and if it’s possible, carve out time to center yourself. Take heed, as others could read what you say in a negative light. Use the energy of this transit to focus rather than nitpick. Fortunately, the day advances far more smoothly. A Mercury-Neptune transit enhances your problem-solving ability, especially with conversations or thoughts related to financial, home, practical, and mechanical matters. Fun, inspiring, or thoughtful discussions with people you care about can figure strongly. Letting go of the pressure to concentrate has a nice effect on you, allowing you to see the bigger picture.
PiscesWith the Moon in the sign behind yours all day, aim to get rid of extra mental clutter, dear Pisces. In the first part of the day, there can be some tricky energy to navigate, and it requires special handling. A Mercury-Saturn square can bring limits or narrowness into focus, which can be frustrating. Criticism or feeling weighed down can figure strongly temporarily. It’s best to go in with the idea that you’ll learn something valuable from problem areas to go forward feeling stronger and more confident. As the day advances, blocks lift with a Mercury-Neptune aspect that helps smooth over conversations. It’s an especially favorable influence on your relationships. You might receive good feedback, news, or reviews. Receiving new information that helps you and your goals along can figure strongly. Fortunately, your strength shines through your communications.
