Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Aim to take things easy, dear Aries, since the Moon is in the sign just behind yours today and tomorrow. This time of the lunar month is good for winding down. Even so, a Mercury-Uranus transit suggests a tendency to worry or plan poorly due to nerves. There are some wild cards to deal with, which can be fun and exciting or disruptive, depending on how you take it! In fact, good energy is with you for creative approaches and strategies if you can calm yourself down. You tend to go your own way with your ideas and plans these days, and while it may cause some waves, working with your creative muse and answering to your intuition serves you well. Today is also good for your appeal and magnetism.
A Mercury-Uranus aspect today can point to some temporary disconnects, dear Taurus, or a nervous disposition. There may be household tension and restlessness as 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 stick with the familiar, while another part seeks to branch out and pioneer something new. Indecision can be the result. Once you’ve challenged yourself, you can take stock of what’s working in your life and talk through problems with others. Try not to overthink things, which is a strong tendency now. Creative solutions to problems are yours for the taking if you step back from a matter and let your intuition work its magic.
There can be many ideas today, dear Gemini, but little organization with Mercury square to Uranus. If you decide to enjoy the energy instead of fight against it, then you will do well. However, if you are trying to find order in the chaos, tension is likely. There is a distinct possibility that you speak too hastily on a matter today. Of course, you may choose to let it happen and go with the flow or hold back if you’re not in the mood to take a little mental risk! This transit involving your planetary ruler, Mercury, can be a bit disorienting as it shakes up schedules and thought processes. Even so, something that’s released now may lead to a messy but relieving conversation. Seek ways to center or ground yourself for best results now.
Today’s Mercury-Uranus square can be a little disorienting, dear Cancer, but out of a wee bit of chaos can come exciting ideas and perhaps some camaraderie. You could find that you’re clashing with a friend about an idea or core value before you get to a greater understanding of one another. Watch for overshooting and communications that you fire off without thinking. Avoid doing things so quickly that you end up missing the mark. Look for the moments of inspiration and pay attention to them while focusing on keeping yourself grounded. The Moon in a compatible sign all day also helps keep your spirits high.
With a Mercury-Uranus square influencing the first half of today, dear Leo, there can be some tension if you expect everything will go as planned. Conflicts or confrontations can undoubtedly lead to positive things, but nervous energy only adds stress to your plate. Avoid pushing situations or people. If you find that you’re quickly becoming impatient, seek a new subject or topic that interests you and move at your own pace. There can be unexpected reactions to your communications, interruptions, and perhaps some changes to the schedule. These things can be disruptive, but you might also choose to work with the energy and enjoy the element of surprise. As well, resolutions to problems can result from a little chaos.
With the day’s Mercury-Uranus square, dear Virgo, something said can stir up all sorts of issues, including defensiveness. Before it spirals out of control, consider whether or not it’s better to merely correct errors or ignore them and move on. It’s a day when sharp words and moves can result from impatience or misunderstandings. You may also be dealing with unexpected results, disrupted plans, or communications that stir things up. However, something random or sudden may very well stimulate a new plan, insight, or perspective. This influence fades away by midday. While your nerves may remain frazzled for a bit longer, there are calmer influences that help as the day advances. A key person in your life can help ground you.
In the first half of the day, a Mercury-Uranus square can put the pressure on, dear Libra. Nervous energy tends to run high with this influence active. This energy may feel like pressure on you to take on more than you can handle. You don’t want to follow the crowd right now, and you shouldn’t have to, but there are ways to go your own way that cause less of a stir. The desire to break away from the conventional is strong. However, it may be better to resist doing so if it’s only about rebelling or combatting boredom. Unnecessary friction can result from hasty words and movements right now. Once over restlessness, you may very well settle into some happy tidying or organizing today. The Moon spends today and tomorrow in your solar sixth house of work, routine, and health. Work and chores may even feel therapeutic.
In the first half of the day, you may want to fight a tendency to overthink things that comes with a Mercury-Uranus square, dear Scorpio. 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 friend today, as allowing for the unexpected can help reduce the tension. Advice coming in today may not seem any good at first, but you don’t have to agree with advice to learn something from it. Disagreeing may jumpstart your own genius thinking on a matter. The Moon spends the day in your sector of creativity, joy, romance, and entertainment. It’s a time for listening to your inner child, and as the clatter of the morning fades away, you’ll find it much easier to do so.
The first half of the day is a little tricky if you’re craving order, dear Sagittarius. While you’re usually up for a challenge, the Moon in your solar fourth house encourages some quiet. Today’s Mercury-Uranus square requires some flexibility and commitment to enjoying a quicker pace or surprise elements and disorganization. Resisting it can add to the tension further. It can be an exciting time if you enjoy throwing ideas into a ring without committing to them. It may be challenging to get a word (or thought) in edgewise, but once past this, you can very well arrive at a new perspective on a creative project, romance, or educational interest. The details of a plan may not fall into place yet. It’s best not to expect anything to be “just so” today.
A Mercury-Uranus conflict influences the first half of the day, dear Capricorn. There can be clashes of opinion or tension related to upturned schedules or unreliability. Others may be hanging on too tightly to their opinions, ideas, or methods, and it becomes a little too easy to disagree. Sharp words can come from impatience. It isn’t anything you can’t handle, and, in fact, useful ideas can result. Interesting conversations may also happen from a bit of chaos or disorder. As well, detours from the routine can inspire a new line of thinking that works in your favor. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and this is another sign that things are busier than usual.
With a Mercury-Uranus square influencing the first half of today, dear Aquarius, you may be looking for a little more mental stimulation or excitement than usual. However, you may get more than you bargained for. Someone’s ideas may seem a bit too far out, or you could become frustrated with disorganized instructions or unnecessary distractions. Aim to enjoy the randomness of this energy rather than worrying too much on how things will resolve. This aspect often brings an unexpected piece of news or result. The Moon spends today and tomorrow in your resources sector, and you might settle in, content with something familiar and predictable as the day advances.
In the first half of the day, watch that nervous energy doesn’t drag you down, dear Pisces. There is a tendency to take on more than you can reasonably handle, and possibly to overthink problems to the point of considerable tension. An inclination to misjudge things comes from a Mercury-Uranus transit that seems to shake up the routine. If you can tune into its somewhat random, eccentric theme and enjoy this transit’s surprise elements, you’ll be in good shape. Avoid overthinking things for best results now. The Moon spends today and tomorrow in your sign, and you’re seeking out a little more emotional excitement than usual. It’s hard to escape notice at this time of the lunar month, but it works out well for you since you’re craving a connection.
