Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies are better for rest and reflection than for innovation, dear Aries. You have a greater love of order and discipline these days, and it’s a good thing, but the Sun wants you to enjoy more leisure time. If you feel overwhelmed, consider stripping things back a little, but also aim for balance. Energies may temporarily dip, but it’s a good idea to slow down a bit this week. While you may feel a little confused, this is a time to see different angles of a situation and adjust your plans if needed. Avoid too-high expectations today. There may be some doubts that need clearing up, and it’s a process that you can’t and shouldn’t push. Authenticity is always important to you in the long run, so take your time making decisions.
TaurusWhile the Moon in your sign all day feels fresh, dear Taurus, the day’s energies are better for biding your time. Aim to avoid taking on new projects or commitments so that you don’t overload yourself. Your focus tends to diffuse. It may not be easy to do what you want because people who need help or support are taking priority. Or, uncertainties in your social life or with a project can leave you feeling a little unsettled today. New ideas and promises coming to you right now may not have much permanence. Aim to be patient and accept a roundabout way of getting where you want to go or wait for a better time to pursue your goals more directly. The Sun and Mercury are encouraging you to settle in, nest, and get comfortable. As they clash with other drives this week, it’s best to make adjustments that allow you to round out your experiences even with your comfort needs prioritized.
GeminiThe Sun and Mercury are encouraging your attention to the lighter side of life, dear Gemini. You’re curious and seeking some variety. Right now, these drives clash with your desire for more meaning and attraction to deeper connections and projects. It may not seem easy to, but finding a better balance is possible if you set your mind to the task. Nevertheless, today’s energies are a little too murky for big moves. Instead, it’s a time to slow down and process, digest, and enjoy yourself. Aim to slow your approach just enough to see where you might be making errors or overlooking your true feelings on a matter. Listen well to what your intuition has to say, but wait for clarity since it’s not the time for clear answers. A minute by minute approach seems ideal.
CancerVery different drives compete for your attention today, dear Cancer, and this can be exhausting on an emotional level. Adjustments may need to be made if you sense that there’s something a little off. As well, you can be more sensitive than usual, and it may be that you need some rest or special attention to overlooked needs. Watch for seeing problems where they don’t exist. If emotions and reactions seem to be inappropriate for the situation, it’s time to look within. Try not to let whims blur your judgment today. It’s not the best day for feeling reinforced and appreciated. However, processing or digesting can be useful and good for you right now. Before rushing forward, aim to attend to your priorities. Sit a little longer with your new ideas or conclusions.
LeoIt’s better to tackle things one step at a time instead of pushing today, dear Leo. You may act as a middleman or go-between. While you’re very often enjoying your work, chores, duties, or health pursuits these days, the Sun and Mercury in Leo encourage your independence and spontaneity. It may be challenging to fit in all that you want to do. Slowing down, making adjustments, and imagining possibilities may be better than pursuing your interests directly today. Either you need to think something through or make refinements before moving forward. You could be feeling a little vulnerable or low, and temporarily demotivated. Consider sleeping on your ideas and waiting for confidence to return. This way, you’ll get the chance to consider more angles. It’s possible that in your haste to move your plans forward that you’re missing some critical emotional considerations, and now is the time to catch up.
VirgoSolutions to problems are more likely to arrive if you aren’t obsessing over them again today, dear Virgo. There can be some minor confusion or doubt hanging in the air, which can slow you down. With current transits, you’re likely to be more impressionable, vulnerable, sensitive, and inclined to daydream. You can feel tempted to withdraw and escape. While you should probably take a timeout, it may not be good to bow out of too much now. Watch for confusion or vagueness with others. You may feel a little out of step, unsure if you want time to yourself or companionship. Aim to rest, digest, and process a bit more before moving forward.
LibraToday’s transits support slowing down and taking things one step at a time, dear Libra. The Sun is in your social sector this month, encouraging you to experiment, reach out beyond your usual boundaries, and connect with information and others. Today, you may feel torn between different drives, and this leaves you sitting on the fence. Sticking with comfortable settings and situations may be your better bet temporarily. Dilemmas and choices might force a good “think session” that helps you see your priorities. A temporary dip in energy is possible, and it may be better to go with the flow or wait and see rather than insist on a solid plan.
ScorpioCareer matters, responsibilities, or structure and order can be stronger draws these days, dear Scorpio, with the Sun and Mercury in your solar tenth house. Today, your attention to personal interests, daily affairs, and personal life can compete. You may want to do it all when you just don’t have the time or the energy. You’re probably better off nurturing your imagination than seeking definite answers. As much as you’d like to move your plans or goals forward, some uncertainty can slow things down, which can be a good thing. Strive for objectivity, even if you need to find it through someone else, before making any substantial commitments, or delay them for a better time. Exchanging pleasantries and enjoying the flow rather than focusing on the actual outcome is your best bet.
SagittariusThe Sun in your spirit sector encourages spontaneity and exploration, dear Sagittarius. It’s clashing with Jupiter and Neptune, and you can feel a little torn or temporarily demotivated. It can be difficult to find a balance between responsibility and pleasure, as it may involve cutting out some activities or toning things down, but it’s likely for the best right now. Plans may not be coming together today, but it’s likely only a small speedbump. Attempting to push to find a resolution to a problem is unlikely to work out, but pulling back from the situation might do the trick. The gap between your wishes and reality may seem more prominent than usual, but don’t waste time on discouragement. Instead, give yourself time.
CapricornToday’s transits favor enhancing or improving existing resources rather than beginning new endeavors, dear Capricorn. There’s a tendency to feel a bit out of the loop temporarily. Aim to be selective with where to direct your energy, and aim to rest or strengthen yourself instead of pushing something that isn’t ready to move. You can benefit from looking back at old relationship matters and emotional issues and how they may be affecting you in the present. Doing some deep thinking can be productive, but it can be tricky to get to the heart of a matter just for now. You’re sensitive at the moment and may not be ready to learn all about a situation. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, and you’re inclined to seek a fun diversion.
AquariusThe Sun and Mercury are encouraging your social, involved side these days, dear Aquarius. Today, your needs for some time for reflection or independence seems to compete with these drives. Feeling a bit deflated is temporary and can be a sign that you need a break or timeout. Promises and plans formed today may go by the wayside later, and you could be tempted to go the easy route. Rather than committing, it may be best to put things on hold until you figure them out. The important thing is that you’re stretching your mind and entertaining new ideas. Seek ways to balance and manage your life without undermining your happiness. Adjustments or time to reconsider may be necessary.
PiscesThe Sun and Mercury in your solar sixth house these days encourage your focus on work and health or practical concerns, dear Pisces. Today, you can feel torn between attention to your chores and your social life or personal goals. A breather may be in order today and tomorrow. You may feel a little demotivated or uncertain just for the time being, and this is simply a sign that there are more angles to consider before moving on. Or, you may not have paid enough attention to your emotional needs and goals, and it’s time to catch up. Stepping to the side could be better than confronting or challenging just for now, giving you the chance to observe and redirect plans or your energies if necessary.
