Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon at the top of your chart puts you in a position to lead or take charge again today, dear Aries. You tend to invest more energy and thought into your responsibilities, goals, or performance. It can also be a good day for thinking outside of the box about financial matters. Analyzing past patterns can help you make better decisions. While there can be disagreements to deal with, for the most part, they’re more stimulating than annoying. You’re likely to find it easy to get in touch with your current priorities, but it’s probably best if you avoid focusing too narrowly and instead keep some of your options open.
TaurusYou are going against the grain in some ways today, dear Taurus, but you’re not inclined to meet too many obstacles. There can be quite a bit of excitement about a longer-term plan, project, or group endeavor. A friendship can come into strong focus, and you can feel quite inspired about it or something in your network. Inventive new ideas, dreams, and possibilities can figure strongly now. The Moon’s all-day transit of your spirit sector inspires you to change your usual “settings” or routine, helping you see your life a little differently, and it can be refreshing. The desire for something new can come on suddenly, and you can feel a little torn between sticking with what you know and going out on a limb.
GeminiYou may be feeling a sense of creative renewal or liberation today, dear Gemini. You may feel tempted to break through taboos or enforce changes. You might surprise yourself by divulging information that you didn’t think you’d reveal. Perhaps there is a mischievous part of you that wants to put something from the past behind you. Being mindful of this tendency can help make life a little smoother, although you may want to release yourself from a problem, secret, or past matter. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector. While you’ve been doing more diversifying and detaching, this Moon transit can feel like a strong call to specialize or focus your energies.
CancerYou can be holding on to your ideas and going your own way with them today and tomorrow, dear Cancer, expecting others to accept you for who you are. Still, you seem to need others or seek feedback more so than usual with the Moon’s all-day transit of your partnership sector, and you can feel a little torn as a result. The desire for another perspective on a situation is strong. Try not to stress over roadblocks, especially since there is wonderful energy for opportunities to learn and heal today. While you may not always agree with others today, you’re likely to learn a lot from your interactions.
LeoYou can find it quite natural to connect with your dreams and ideals today, dear Leo, even with the Moon’s all-day transit of your work and health sector. Work or business can do well if you apply nontraditional thinking to them right now. The desire to advance and innovate is strong. Getting chores out of the way or clearing up paperwork can help clear your head and make room for the more exciting or creative endeavors you want to pursue. Analyzing patterns, particularly related to business and finances, can help you think up new, improved methods.
VirgoAn idea can inspire you and lead you down a new path, dear Virgo, or it might set off interesting tangents of thought. This week emphasizes new and even breakthrough thinking. There can be unexpected benefits coming through a faraway connection or partnership. This continues to be a good time for deep connections and absorbing activities, but today’s energies are a little more scattered and exploratory. You need that extra spark now. Today’s Moon encourages finding some time for personal enjoyment. There can be some divided attention or disagreement on plans, but you’re likely to discover some especially inventive or positive ideas and attitudes through your interactions.
LibraThis is a fine time for research, work, and health matters, dear Libra. Problem-solving is a theme now, as you’re seeing patterns that you may not typically notice on a busier day. Today’s energies challenge you to let go of familiar patterns of thinking and create new ones. Even if you don’t agree with others on several points, you’re certainly finding things to stimulate your mind. Mechanical and mental work can thrive, and communications tend to be powerful. Still, the Moon spends the day in your sector of heart and home, and it’s a good idea to carve out some time for quiet and comfortable activities.
ScorpioYou’re curious and mentally engaged today, dear Scorpio, and you’re coming up with great ideas, especially when you put your head together with someone. It’s a fine time to generate ideas or solve a problem that clears the path for new directions. You recognize patterns and put puzzle pieces together today, although this is likely to come after some trial and error. Bouncing ideas off someone else can help out a lot, and so can putting pen to paper or typing your ideas out. Verbalizing in these ways can lead to better decision-making today. You could find it difficult to juggle your interests and responsibilities today without feeling a little overwhelmed, however.
SagittariusToday is strong for catching onto some exciting brainwaves, dear Sagittarius. Your mind is working overtime thinking up new ideas. You recognize patterns, and this process helps make decision-making more natural. You could feel freer in self-expression and a little more courageous on a mental level, even with the Moon in your practical second house. You are going your own way with your ideas about how to best approach matters related to romance, fun, entertainment, art, and children. You could find that you disagree with others about money or fundamental values today, but it’s a good time to learn from one another’s differences.
CapricornToday’s energies are strong for creative expression, dear Capricorn. Seeing past patterns can help bring perspective to new projects and endeavors. Your mind is quick, although it’s not terribly easy to concentrate right now. It can be useful to find a new learning challenge or a special focus to sharpen your ability to apply yourself. New ideas inspire new and improved attitudes towards your endeavors and even your problems. You are eager for growth and change. The Moon is in your sign all day, and your emotional spirit is powerful.
AquariusThe Moon’s all-day transit of your privacy sector might slow you down a little, dear Aquarius. With this influence, you’re especially aware of any tendencies to overload on an emotional level. It’s a time for restoring your energy. Still, there can be an illuminating moment when the pieces of a puzzle seem to unite and you see a matter more clearly. Problem-solving with family, home, and money matters is strong. Discussions about strategies with trusted others can really move you forward, and your intuition is working powerfully for you.
PiscesThis is a strong time for creative thinking and putting your unique perspective and viewpoint to good use, dear Pisces. You tend to attract interesting people into your orbit these days, largely due to your interesting point of view and charming way of communicating. You have extra special and valuable advice to give, and you’re feeling very generous. At times today, distractions can prevent you from getting to a conclusion. However, don’t let go of the creative process since challenges to your thinking can help you think more clearly. There can be some stimulating disagreements now.
