Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first half of the day, you’d probably prefer to observe than to actively socialize, dear Aries, but you can be in demand. The day’s energies are upbeat, although perhaps somewhat competitive or impulsive in spots. Throwing yourself into an enjoyable pursuit can be rewarding if you can avoid the pitfalls of overdoing things. The Moon moves into harmony with your sign later today, bringing out your more natural traits and pulling you out of yourself. This transit prompts you to think about your long-range goals and plans. Seeing the bigger picture can soothe and comfort you and round out your understanding of a matter.
TaurusYou can be particularly concerned with close relationships today, dear Taurus. While there can be a tendency today to become easily offended or frustrated, consider that tension building within you has to do with a desire to grow and improve. It’s imperative that you be as professional as you can when necessary. The Moon transit in the first half of the day increases your need for others. Conversations might help relieve some recent mental tension and pressures. It’s a good time to give a little less attention to your own needs, within reason! Later today, the Moon moves into your solar eighth house, and you might find you’re turning inward for some reflection.
GeminiToday’s energies are good for original ideas and problem-solving, dear Gemini. You may need to watch for a tendency to overdo or misjudge early today. The first part of the day can find you intent on tidying your life or shaping up. You have an eye for what might make your daily life more efficient and fulfilling. It can be satisfying to take care of loose ends and put effort into self-improvement, even though you can be a little distracted as the Moon forms a square to Jupiter. The Moon moves into your partnership as the day advances, and you can feel considerably more sociable. You’re also more companionable as your attention and focus shift away from problem areas in your everyday life.
CancerConversations are stimulating and creative today and tomorrow, dear Cancer. You’re inclined to share your thoughts and listen generously. The Moon continues in your recreation sector for the first half of the day, encouraging your need to enjoy yourself. You feel a little freer to express your playful side, and the enthusiasm you express tends to inspire others. The Moon moves into your work and routines sector later today, and the primary key to emotional satisfaction is to set some details of your life straight or tidy up your affairs. It’s a time of the lunar month when you can feel compelled to tie up loose ends.
LeoThe Moon continues to transit your solar fourth house in the first half of the day, dear Leo, and you gravitate to familiar sights, activities, or people. Matters of the past seem to be settling. There can be some tension building in a close relationship, but it may be about your need to grow and improve and impatience to do these things. Pacing yourself can help. Your need for security and comfort is more pronounced than usual. However, with the Moon’s move into your creative sector later today, you’re in a great position to express your unique traits and enjoy yourself.
VirgoToday’s energies can find you chatty, communicative, and curious, dear Virgo. Although people can be a little prone to debate and sensitivity with ideas and opinions, you’re looking forward. Aim to connect with your deep desire to expand, improve, and grow–if you do not understand it, you can feel restless now. You can be pretty 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. The Moon moves to the bottom of your solar chart later today, where it will spend a couple of days reminding you of the benefits of seeking out a little more comfort, safety, and belonging. This is a good time for staying within your comfort zone–sometimes you need to get cozy.
LibraWith the Moon continuing its transit of your solar second house in the first half of the day, dear Libra, you tend to want to stay put and surround yourself with familiar things. The routine can comfort you. Even so, there can be some impatience or a building sense that you want to do something different, more exciting, and more fulfilling. The Moon moves into your communications zone later today, serving to pique your curiosity and highlighting your need for more connections to the world around you. You’re seeking out some variety and mental stimulation.
ScorpioThe Moon continues to transit your sign in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. While you should certainly watch for impatience and restlessness, it’s a good time to feel the rush of initiative. You are more excitable than usual. Once the Moon finishes its transit of Scorpio, you tend to take stock of what you have and what you may need. Influences encourage you to slow down and build rather than innovate just for now. While in recent days, it may have all been about the spirit of things, now you want some solid results. Aim to turn your attention to those things that make you feel most comfortable and take special care of them.
SagittariusYou can begin the day in an introspective mood, dear Sagittarius, as you require a little more personal space and time to relax. This puts you in a superb position to let go of the past to make way for the future. It’s a fine time to distinguish what might be weighing you down and preventing you from starting fresh. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, giving you some license to explore your feelings and needs. It’s a good idea to listen to your emotions but not to be overruled by them. A little humor or even a soothing distraction can ease recent mental tension and pressure. You’re likely to be in demand, in a mostly positive way.
CapricornThis morning, you might need to keep a lid on a tendency to want to do too much, too fast, dear Capricorn. New ventures and ideas or connections with friends and networking are in stronger focus. You are eager, and that’s a great thing, but don’t get yourself in too deep with commitments that may feel too much to handle at a later date. The Moon heads into your privacy sector later today, bringing on the need to rest and relax. You’re in a strong position to observe and learn about your motivations. You could feel the need for some level of emotional retreat. Circumstances may be such that you are better off functioning behind the scenes just for now.
AquariusYou tend to get noticed today with the Moon continuing its transit of the most visible and notable area of your chart, dear Aquarius. Your responsibilities are strongly on your mind. Fortunate energy is with you for establishing yourself and getting comfortable, although there is some tendency to go overboard early today. The Moon heads into your social sector later today, and some pressures ease. You’re tuning into the need to connect with others and disconnect temporarily from your goals and ambitions to gain perspective.
PiscesYou seek learning experiences right now, and you’re likely to find them, dear Pisces. There can be interesting topics to explore. In fact, you can be tempted by too many things early today. It’s best to avoid spreading yourself too thin. The Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart later today can sensitize your performance and responsibilities. You get into an accomplishing frame of mind, and your goals are in focus. You could be feeling more in charge, vital, and confident, and you tend to want to set your own pace, even if you’re craving more structure.
