Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere’s a strong focus on your sector of love relationships, entertainment, pleasure, dating, and creativity, dear Aries. The Moon heads into this area of your solar chart today, meeting the Sun there tomorrow and launching a take-charge new cycle. The Sun joins with Mercury there today, and mental excitement and interest are strong. It can be most useful, but do consider that your intuition on the matter hasn’t yet kicked in. It’s best to wait until a few days after tomorrow’s New Moon to push forward with something all-new. You can experience a strong urge to express yourself in a creative, unique manner today. You may learn new details about creative projects, relationships, or finances that help you solve problems and make decisions. A romantic revelation can figure strongly, and observations and conversations occurring at this time are likely to be significant.
TaurusThis can be a time of meaningful conversations about or with family, dear Taurus, as the Sun and Mercury join forces in your solar fourth house. This may instead be about ideas and thoughts that come together, creating a fuller picture of a matter. Living conditions or arrangements can be the topic or focus. You’re interested in making improvements and arriving at better decisions. Mental activity is strong today, and you might particularly enjoy making plans, solving problems, and handling details. You’re taking pride in your ability to handle personal matters. Significant ideas, news, or conversations can be part of your day, even if you may not yet know their value. Tomorrow’s New Moon will help you channel your energy. For now, it’s a good idea to process and digest things. While your mind is busy, your intuition hasn’t yet had the chance to kick in.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini, and the pace of your life may pick up. Still, this is just a day before the New Moon, and while you have a lot of mental energy, it’s best not to take a new course of action just yet. Do watch for talking ahead of yourself. Although you can be excited about presenting your case, your intuition hasn’t totally engaged, and it’s better to observe, think, and casually chat than it is to lock something down. Learning is quick and easy, and new ideas can be exciting. It’s important to watch for hasty decisions or communications now since you may be jumping ahead of yourself and not considering your feelings in the process. Pay particular attention to details, news, and ideas emerging as they can be significant. In the coming weeks, you’ll have new and powerful energy at your disposal for learning and connecting.
CancerMoney matters and practical affairs are in focus, dear Cancer, with the Sun and Mercury coming together in your resources sector. Tomorrow, a New Moon will occur in this area of your solar chart, prompting a fresh start. Today, it’s more about seeing important details and arriving at a fuller view of a situation. New insights, ideas, and perspectives can figure strongly now as further details emerge. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project now. A financial, ownership, or respect matter can gain more clarity. You might flesh an idea out with details and specifics. The Moon is Balsamic, making it less than ideal to begin new projects, but perfectly fine and even desirable to put a quick end to something you need to let go of. This way, you’ll be able to move forward, feeling lighter and happier.
LeoYou’re enthusiastic, ready for action, and quick to communicate today, dear Leo. The Moon enters your sign, and the Sun and Mercury join forces in Leo. You’re coming across loud and clear! Do watch for hasty words, as you have a powerful voice and the courage to say your piece. There can be an idea or project that excites and motivates you now. You may be privy to details that were missed or hidden in the past, clarifying matters enough for you to make confident decisions. There can be pivotal realizations and epiphanies occurring now, but try not to rush things. It’s a time of mental renewal and increased decisiveness. You may also find that people are talking about you today! You’ll be seeking ways to upgrade your life, especially after tomorrow’s New Moon in your sign. Before then, the Moon is Balsamic, making it a better time for reflection than for action. It’s an ideal time to bring something to completion or to end a bad habit, however.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your privacy sector, dear Virgo. The Sun and Mercury align in this area of your solar chart, and tomorrow, a New Moon occurs here. As such, it’s a time of intense focus on your inner world, the past, finishing important projects, clearing out the deadwood in your life, and doing some soul searching. There can be a strong urge or need to talk about, analyze, and handle matters related to the past or to tie up loose ends. You might seek activities for healing and renewal. You could now recognize something you previously missed, or a conversation can bring up new information that rounds out your understanding of a matter. There can be new and exciting developments in your private life or a breakthrough. You’re now dealing with ideas and concepts that you may have avoided in the past. Do watch that your curiosity doesn’t take you too far. Otherwise, it’s a good time to sort things out so that you’re lighter.
LibraThis is a strong time for feeling motivated and inspired by your dreams or visions of the future, dear Libra. You might arrive at a fuller understanding of a long-standing problem. You can enjoy exciting ideas through a friend, your connections, or networks. Look for friendship and expansion opportunities. You might feel more confident about speaking your mind now, but consider that we can be a little hasty with self-expression today. A frank discussion might catapult you in a new direction, particularly after tomorrow night’s New Moon, or it might motivate you to make positive changes. Friends have something important to contribute or say, and the full details of a plan may be born. The Moon heads into your sector of friends, groups, and happiness goals or wishes. Before the New Moon tomorrow, which can point you in a new direction, it’s better to think and observe than to start anew.
ScorpioThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Scorpio, where there’s quite a stir of activity. You’re attracting a lot of attention or giving a lot of attention to your goals and ambitions. You may very well have a competitive edge now and in the coming days. It’s best not to jump to communicate too quickly, as people are inclined to remember what you say, more so than usual. Your heart may not be in your words or proclamations today with the Sun and Mercury joining forces. However, it’s a great time to pour yourself into a project that gets you somewhere. You may be tearing down obstacles in your path and solving problems. There can be a clarification or a meaningful realization today that promises to push an idea or project forward. Still, it’s not the time to take a new course of action just yet with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, set to redirect you. Today’s strong as an idea day.
SagittariusAs you express yourself with more enthusiasm and faith today, dear Sagittarius, others are quick to catch on and tend to respond well. Excellent energy is with you for enjoying a new line of thought or a mental adventure of sorts. An important piece of information can arrive that completes a picture. It’s an excellent time to pursue something related to healing the mind or paying particular attention to the mind-body connection. You’re alert, sharp, and communicative. Keep in mind that while conversations can be interesting right now, an emotional or sensitive element is likely missing. You can be doing some fine learning and thinking, but the “doing” part is best saved for a few days after tomorrow’s New Moon. Conversations, news, and thoughts occur now that help you clear up misconceptions, but acting on them should wait until your intuition backs you up.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your intimacy sector today, dear Capricorn, and will meet the Sun there tomorrow, launching a new cycle. Today, the Sun and Mercury join forces, and you can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter. You’re mentally sharp, seeing details you may have missed or that weren’t available in the past. An important conversation or observation may occur now, or more details of a financial matter can come to your attention, rounding out the picture. On the topic of finances, intimacy, or research, there can be some valuable insights. Clearing the air can feel good, and arriving at a decision, even better! However, it’s important to avoid pushing too far with a topic or losing the emotion behind an issue today. While the intellect is sharp, your intuition needs a bit more time to kick in. This is not the time to jump into action.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your partnership sector today, dear Aquarius. Tomorrow, it will meet the Sun in this area of your solar chart, sparking new-beginning energy. Today, the Sun joins with Mercury, and there can be a lot to talk and/or think about! You can experience these energies through a partner or significant friend, as someone may be very intent on your involvement or try to turn you on to an idea or plan. Or, there can be important conversations and clarifications through your interactions. This is a crucial time for knowing which ideas and projects genuinely move you. Mental energy is strong and in the spotlight. You can be doing a lot of processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas today, and interactions with someone can help jumpstart important thinking. While this can be quite positive overall, you may need to check in with your feelings before rushing ahead. The New Moon tomorrow will help redirect you.
PiscesWith the Sun and Mercury aligning in your work and services sector today, dear Pisces, you’re likely to see a matter more clearly. An idea can come to full bloom, and thoughts about your health, daily affairs, chores, or work can be insightful. Conversations or incoming news can lead the way to new beginnings. The New Moon tomorrow is likely to help motivate you to move forward, but for now, you’re making some important points and observations. You have much to gain from what you see and discover. Communication issues tend to dominate, temporarily taking a back seat to intuition and emotion, so do be aware of this. Observe, analyze, and take in, but give yourself time to process and digest before taking a new course of action. Consider what habits or routines can use some revamping or spiffing up. Resolutions can be most appropriate now, particularly in these areas.
