Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesPluto has just started its yearly retrograde cycle, dear Aries, and some of your long-term career goals may be up for review during this period that lasts until October 4th. Facing up to truths about the past and a look at financial, career, life path, or intimacy matters can be part of the picture. While pressures and fears can be magnified just for a few days, the retrograde cycle itself offers you some ability to detach and observe, and this helps you to gain a clearer perspective. You’re more able to see areas where you’ve been over-attached, worried, obsessed, or a bit paranoid. The coming months are excellent for reworking career and planning initiatives, doing the research and legwork, and refining projects. Today’s Moon transits can find you busy with projects and personal interests. It may not feel very focused, but you could be picking up all sorts of useful tidbits as you dabble. Aim to look at things from a faithful and positive perspective.
TaurusToday, the Moon’s transits encourage you to slow down and build rather than innovate just for now, dear Taurus. While in recent days, it may have all been about the spirit of things, now you want some solid results. This is a day for turning your attention to those things that make you feel most comfortable and taking special care of them. Even so, Pluto has just begun its yearly retrograde cycle, and partnerships or studies may require more thought or strategy. It’s an excellent period for backing off a situation just a little so that you can gain perspective and see where you’ve been too attached, controlling, or tense.

You may be reassessing, observing, and gaining a new vision of a close relationship, publishing project, educational path, or belief system during the coming five-plus months.
GeminiPluto is now retrograde until October 4th, dear Gemini, and if the give-and-take or trust in a key relationship has fallen out of balance, you’ll feel it more intensely now. Health and work matters, especially related to issues of control or fear, can also come into sharper focus with this shift. Over the coming five-plus months, you’ll benefit from a review or reassessment of current wellness programs, routines, work projects, power dynamics, intimate relationships, shared assets, or debt. With a healthy level of detachment, you’re in a fabulous position to do some research and information collecting that benefits you. The station occurring today can magnify problem areas, but the retrograde cycle itself is far more natural and comfortable.

Recent mental tension and pressure can be eased today with a little humor or possibly even a soothing distraction. You’re likely to be in demand, in a mostly positive way.
CancerPluto has just started its yearly retrograde cycle, dear Cancer, and as it makes the shift, there can be heavier energy with us temporarily. Problem areas can feel magnified, and this can most relate to one-on-one relationships, creative projects, children, or romance. This retrograde cycle, lasting until October 4th, can prompt the need to review your feelings. There is a tendency to cling to old patterns or to examine the past instead of braving new territory. Aim to detach yourself a little from matters to gain a clearer, more objective perspective. You’re likely to identify areas where you’ve been pushing too hard or where you’ve been too attached for your own good. This mission works well with a Sun-Uranus alignment that also wants you to feel lighter and freer. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and it’s important to rest and relax today. You’re in a strong position to observe and learn about your own motivations and those of others. You could feel the need for some level of emotional retreat.
LeoPluto has just begun its yearly retrograde cycle, dear Leo, and problem areas can magnify with the shift, likely related to work, routines, health, family, and home. Even so, as you grow accustomed to this energy, you’re in a brilliant position to review and reassess these matters as you gain perspective. You might more clearly see where you’ve been over-attached or where you’ve been putting too much pressure on yourself along these lines. You take on a more detached, observational role in these areas of life until October 4th. Research is favored. You might also consider ways to let go of some of the control you want over your routines and work. It helps that Saturn has moved out of your work and habits sector for now. Today’s Moon transit encourages you to feel freer to be yourself, and a Sun-Uranus alignment wants you to express yourself more spontaneously. Your communications might naturally guide others towards healing. You’re looking to make progress and perhaps feeling gently competitive. You might also feel the need to challenge yourself to move into unexplored territory.
VirgoPluto has just started its yearly retrograde cycle, dear Virgo, and will continue to retrograde until October 4th. With the shift today, there can be a temporary magnification of problems, complications, and fears related to those areas of your chart strongly influenced by Pluto: learning, connecting, romance, creativity, recreation, communications, and transportation. Pressures will subside going forward, and in fact, you’ll get to the point where you’re significantly detached enough to gain a better perspective on these things. This way, you can more clearly see where fear and over-attachment may have been working against you. It’s a powerful period for self-knowledge.

Some related plans may need some adjustment, but you could very well discover that you can successfully detach from some of the pressures and fears in these areas. Right now, however, you may be feeling these pressures more intensely as the shift occurs. Keep in mind that you’ll find this process far more comfortable as you grow more accustomed to this energy.

With Jupiter’s close contact with Pluto this year, you’re learning more than ever about your deeper desires. It’s also a time to take a break from pushing yourself too hard mentally. Some projects may even seem to stall or may simply need some editing, adjustments, and refinements. The shift happening today can act to magnify fears and problem areas. Still, as you acclimatize to this shift, you’ll find it easier to detach yourself a little from areas where you’ve been over-controlling, fear-driven, or pressured. Today’s Moon transits your intimacy sector, and this can also serve to bring on a more serious frame of mind. It’s excellent for getting in touch with your true feelings on a matter.

With less pressure on you to control or micromanage your practical affairs, your choices and decisions improve. Even so, it’s important not to push matters that need to evolve in their own time. Today’s Moon transit increases your need for others. You might enjoy showing your appreciation for someone special. Conversations with others might help relieve some recent mental tension and pressures. It’s a good time to give a little less attention to your own needs without ignoring them entirely.
CapricornPluto has just begun its yearly retrograde cycle, dear Capricorn, affecting you a little more than others because Pluto is in your sign. As the shift occurs now, there can be some magnification of unresolved matters, fears, or compulsions.

Until October 4th, you’re in a fine position to review and reassess your approach to self-starts, new beginnings, friendships, and group connections. If you’ve been over-controlling things, you’re more likely to see this now and want to take some of the pressure off. Today’s Moon transits find you focused on tidying your life or shaping up.

With this shift, you might experience some intensifying fears, worries, or frustrations, but these things should settle down nicely very soon.

You may not have noticed how concerns, guilt, and control issues have been working against you. Now that you’re making these associations, it’s easier to work on healing and resolving issues. Today’s Moon transits should feel mostly supportive. You feel a little freer to express your playful side. It’s a strong day for creative thinking and for matters of the heart. The enthusiasm you express tends to inspire others.
