Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aries, and you want to settle in, content with something familiar and predictable. However, with today’s Mercury-Uranus square, there can be some wild cards to manage, which can be fun and exciting or disruptive, depending on the situation and your perspective. Watch for a tendency to worry or plan poorly due to nerves. Speaking too quickly on a matter can be a problem when you’re tense. As the day advances, a Sun-Jupiter transit can point to a feeling of being pulled in different directions. You can feel drawn toward both work and play, and the key might be to either combine them or divide your time in a balanced way. You won’t get the chance to enjoy either if you feel overwhelmed, so look for ways to simplify.
TaurusA Mercury-Uranus aspect today can point to some temporary disconnects, dear Taurus, or a nervous disposition. There may be household tension and restlessness. Family affairs or the need to stick around the home can clash with personal plans and your sense of independence. Alternatively, part of you wants to stay with the familiar, while another part seeks to branch out and pioneer something new. Indecision can be the result. Try not to overthink things, which is a strong tendency now. Jupiter’s transit of your adventure sector this year (until December) encourages you to seek out activities and interests that help you grow and improve. Your approach to life is more spontaneous and open, and you value your freedom to branch out and explore new things. However, the Sun is currently turning your attention to home life and the enjoyment of familiar settings and situations. The dilemma of seeking comfort and wanting to move out of your comfort zone can be prominent now. Finding a balance between comfort and escape can be tricky but not impossible now. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and emotions are more colorful.
GeminiA Mercury-Uranus transit can be a little disorienting as it shakes up schedules and thought processes, dear Gemini. Still, it can lead to interesting detours. There can be many ideas but little organization! Tension results from trying too hard to make order out of chaos. Watch for speaking too soon about a matter. Seek ways to center or ground yourself for best results now. A Sun-Jupiter transit is also in play, making it better to wait and see. If you’ve been scattering your energies or keeping to yourself too much, you’ll feel that you’re missing out, so tone things down and try your best to divide your time more efficiently. Any dilemma encountered now might help you get closer to understanding what you actually want or need.
CancerLook for the moments of inspiration today, dear Cancer, as there can be somewhat disorienting energy with you. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square can produce a bit of chaos, but stirring things up might lead to exciting ideas. You could find that you’re clashing with a friend about an idea or core value before you get to a greater understanding. Watch for communications that you fire off without thinking under these conditions. It may be best to avoid doing things so quickly that you end up missing the mark. Observe and learn rather than jump into action. You need to remind yourself that good principles, common sense, and fairness should be at the heart of your plans, as these are qualities that make you feel the best about yourself. Impulsiveness with your money is possible now, and this may not sit well in a relationship. The Moon in a compatible sign all day helps keep your spirits high.
LeoThe morning’s Mercury-Uranus transit can point to unexpected reactions to your communications, dear Leo. There can be interruptions, nervous tension, or a change to your schedule to manage. These may be disruptive, but you might work with the energy and enjoy the element of surprise. If you’re impatient with current topics, look for a new subject that interests you rather than stirring up problems. Conflicts or confrontations can undoubtedly lead to positive things, but nervous energy may only add stress to your plate. If you have too much to do these days, you’ll feel it as the day advances. Determine your priorities so that you can focus on them until you have more wiggle room or you feel stronger.
VirgoSomething communicated can stir up a bit of tension, dear Virgo, and perhaps some defensiveness. Consider whether it’s better to correct errors or ignore them and move on. It’s a day when sharp words and moves can result from impatience or misunderstandings as Mercury forms a square to Uranus. There can be changes in plans, unexpected results, or communications that interrupt the flow. However, something random or sudden may very well stimulate a new plan, insight, or perspective. Later today, taking a step back from a problem is perhaps the better strategy. You might feel a dip in motivation and energy levels. However, you might learn a bit about your priorities through the dilemmas of the day. The Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, helping to boost your mood despite small disruptions and a bit of indecision.
LibraToday’s Mercury-Uranus square can put the pressure on, dear Libra, particularly on a mental level. Nervous energy can run high with this influence. The desire can be to break away from conventional methods, but we tend to stir up unnecessary tension if we do so too abruptly. Keep in mind that, with this transit, restlessness can lead to words or moves you want to take back. There might be ways to go your own way that cause less of a stir. Try not to think too far ahead, and aim for one step at a time if you’re feeling overwhelmed by choices. As the day advances, indecision may set in. Whether to stick with the familiar or experiment can be a dilemma, but it can gently force a good think session about your priorities.
ScorpioYou might want to resist the tendency to overthink things today, dear Scorpio. A Mercury-Uranus square is the culprit, as it can stir up some mental tension. The pace can be a little too quick, and you might feel out of step with the rest of the world temporarily. Flexibility is your best strategy, as allowing for the unexpected can help reduce the tension. Advice coming in today may not seem useful, but you don’t have to agree with it to learn something from it. Disagreeing may jumpstart your own genius thinking on a matter. Later today, decisions may be hard to come by. While you can fall a little flat as you feel torn, you might also get a better sense of your priorities through your ruminations.
SagittariusThe day can stir up new ways of thinking, dear Sagittarius, but it’s not the best time for easy decisions. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square requires flexibility. You might need to adapt to a quicker pace or surprise elements and disorganization. If you resist and dig in your heels, then it can be tense. It may not be easy to get a word (or thought) in edgewise, but once past this, you might arrive at a new perspective on a project or interest. The details of a plan may not fall into place yet. As the day advances, you might receive competing messages. While you can feel a little drained and find it difficult to know where to begin, the thinking you do now may get you closer to understanding your real priorities. Simplifying seems best now, at least until your energy returns.
CapricornThere can be some issues with decision-making today, dear Capricorn. A Mercury-Uranus square can point to clashes of opinion or tension related to unreliability. Someone might hold on tightly to their opinions, ideas, or methods, and it becomes a little too easy to disagree. Impatience can lead to moves or words you later want to take back. Useful ideas might result from the mental detours you take today, and interesting conversations may also happen from a bit of chaos or disorder. As the day advances, a Sun-Jupiter aspect points to some discontent. You may feel uncertain of your next step. You may want independence on the one hand, and intimacy on the other, and signals are mixed. Energy and motivation levels are subject to dips now until you sort out how to combine these drives or satisfy them in different ways.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, encouraging some quiet, dear Aquarius. However, the morning’s Mercury-Uranus square can produce mental stimulation that heads into tense territory. This aspect often brings an unexpected piece of news or result. Disorganized instructions or unnecessary distractions can frustrate you. Aim to enjoy the randomness of this energy rather than worrying too much about how things will resolve. Later today, a Sun-Jupiter transit pushes two very different energies. Part of you wants to enjoy your downtime, and another part wants some company or input. You can feel quite divided between needing privacy and sharing with others. Look for a way to compromise for best results.
PiscesThere can be nervous energy early today, dear Pisces, as Mercury and Uranus form a square aspect. If you can tune into its rather random, eccentric theme and enjoy its surprise elements, you’ll be in good shape. Avoid overthinking things for best results, as you don’t need to let mental tension drag you down. There is a tendency to take on more than you can reasonably handle. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, adding to the busy theme. You could feel torn between attention to your chores and your social life or larger goals as the day progresses. If you find ways to combine these things or cut back on both so that you don’t overdo either one, you’re in a perfect place. You might learn about your priorities today.
