Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today, a Mercury-Saturn square aspect can point to dealing with delays or blocks, dear Aries. Missed or misunderstood messages or instructions can be part of this. Social worries or concerns could headline in your life just for now. Keep in mind that, more often than not, managing small problems leads to useful new findings and possibly to unexpected improvements and advances. As the day advances, things turn around. In fact, your mood is easy and friendly. Mercury and Venus conjoin in your resources sector, stimulating conversations or further thinking about your needs and wants. Discussions about money can be very beneficial. This is a strong time for negotiating and perhaps making a nice purchase. Natural, comforting activities draw you in, and you may feel best if working towards a tangible goal.
TaurusMercury forms a tense square with Saturn early today, dear Taurus, 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. As the day advances, Mercury and Venus align in your sign, and what you say and do has an impact, so do what you can to generate good impressions! Others notice you not only for your charm but also for your viewpoint.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Gemini, inspiring your need to express and enjoy yourself. Early today, however, communications can be tricky, and missed connections, delays, and minor mishaps may interrupt your day, but they can also lead to interesting detours. 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, visions and moods smooth over. You might learn a secret or have a conversation about a private matter. Although it may be premature to present your ideas, they can be valuable. Aim to enjoy the incubation process. The day is active for romantic attraction, although it’s more of a private, quiet variety.
CancerEarly today, there can be tricky conversations or thinking, dear Cancer. It can be challenging to get your point across due to problems either with the delivery of the message or its reception (or both). People can be touchy, or many small things can seem to go wrong, related primarily to communication delays or breakdowns. You might end up making constructive changes as a result, so aim to slow down and sidestep the unnecessary stress of indecision if possible. As the day advances, Mercury and Venus align, and you can do well for yourself as you connect, share ideas, or exchange stories. A favor or invite may be in the offing. Discussing a personal problem with objectivity can be rewarding. Verbalizing can frame a matter in a different way, which can be helpful. Someone might express their feelings for you.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and you’re looking for a little extra mental stimulation, dear Leo. However, a Mercury-Saturn square this morning can point to the need to clear up problems. You may not feel particularly ahead despite a lot of effort, and it makes sense to go gently with others. New revelations now can be annoying but lead to helpful improvements. Accepting that there are obstacles to understanding one another today can help. Once beyond these things, you’re in great shape for thinking or talking things through. Mercury and Venus head into alignment, and you might bring extra warmth to your work or arrive at a better balance between your personal and professional life now. Diplomacy goes a long way today, and of course, even more so with sincerity in the mix. Discussions about work, career, or general life direction and goals can be inspiring. You’re in an excellent position to negotiate a deal.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and you seek more stability and comfort, dear Virgo. However, early today, there can be criticisms or flaws in focus. Chores or responsibilities can keep you from enjoying yourself and can seem more challenging to manage than usual. Adjustments may be necessary before regaining 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. You can both inspire and charm others with your ideas, and the information you share may very well help someone immensely. Mercury and Venus align and harmonize with your sign, and you’re looking forward. You might find love or enjoyment outside of your usual routine. Joining creative forces can be most welcome and quite successful and satisfying.
LibraThere can be moments today when you feel too vulnerable to deal with outside pressures, dear Libra, and it may be best to sidestep situations that might involve a confrontation or intense demands on your time and energy. Early today, a Mercury-Saturn transit may slow you down, but this can be a blessing in disguise, as it also allows you to make useful adjustments. Aim to put problems behind you for good. As the day advances, energies are easier. Mercury and Venus align, and you’re in great shape for sharing ideas or clarifying your feelings. There can be a resolution to a problem related to debt, support, or shared resources. Instruction, advice, teaching, sharing ideas, and guidance are in favor. Your views are particularly well-received, and your resourcefulness comes to the fore.
ScorpioWith Mercury square Saturn influencing early today, pressures related to domestic or personal matters can weigh heavily, dear Scorpio. 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 an essential strategy. 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 at the moment. However, it can be worth it to apply yourself so that you can get over a hump. As the day progresses, a Mercury-Venus alignment can point to great exchanges. Someone can impress you, and it’s mutual! It’s an excellent time for negotiations, particularly on a one-to-one level or with a partner. You’re in a position of strength in close relationships.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your social sector and turns your attention to your happiness goals, dear Sagittarius. Still, a Mercury-Saturn square early today can point to some tendency to see the glass half empty. It 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. As the day advances, things turn right around. You might take extra steps to reach out and help others, and it’s gratifying. Good ideas are circulating, and your services or the work you do is appreciated. Your closest relationships are especially integral to your sense of emotional satisfaction.
CapricornEarly today, a Mercury-Saturn square can point to a misunderstanding, communication block, or mental disconnect, dear Capricorn. 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 small problems or issues that have been pending. It’s far easier to see the pleasant side of things as the day advances. A light and playful mood figures strongly, in fact. Friendships can be exceptionally warm, and love affairs particularly friendly! People are drawn to you naturally, and you are turning heads more than usual.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit, and you seek inspiration or a new focal point that keeps you interested, dear Aquarius. A Mercury-Saturn square early today can find you dwelling on things that you can’t or shouldn’t change. Aim to reflect on what you can do, and if it’s possible, carve out time to gather your wits. Flaws can seem to magnify temporarily. Take heed, as others could read what you say in a negative light. Use the energy of this transit to focus rather than to nitpick. Fortunately, the day advances more smoothly. Helpful conversations or openings figure strongly. It’s easier to cooperate and get along, and you’re open to sharing your space and thoughts with them. Clarifying your feelings can be successful. You could be feeling a pleasing sense of belonging and understanding with someone close to you.
PiscesEarly today, there can be some tricky energy to navigate, and it requires special handling, dear Pisces. A Mercury-Saturn square can point to limits or narrowness that frustrates you. Criticism or feeling overly limited or weighed down can figure strongly temporarily. It’s best to go in with the idea that you’ll learn something useful from problem areas so that you can go forward feeling stronger and more confident. As the day advances, blocks lift, and clearing the air or a warm exchange can lead to good feelings. Instead, verbalizing a matter brings a new perspective. You can very effectively charm or inspire others through your words.
