Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first half of the day, there is some inclination to make more of something than it is, dear Aries. As the day advances, your judgment improves. With the Moon’s move into your solar seventh house, you’re in good shape for connecting with someone. You tend to love pioneering your way through life, and frequently do things independently, but today, the benefits of a friend, partner, or support system becomes obvious. You may not be at your energetic best for a couple of days, but your social life can get some much-needed attention. Your need for others enlivens. A good idea to help things along is to aim to listen without using what you hear as a launching point for your own stories. Invest yourself in your relationships today.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus, and you’re inclined to see life for its details and problems. Fixing issues can be satisfying now. There is a tendency for a misunderstanding or miscommunication to occur in the first half of the day. Somebody could be making more of an issue than it is, and exaggeration leads to mistakes or frustrations. While it’s best not to trust everything you hear this morning, you could enjoy and learn from some mental meanderings. You can experience a compelling drive to be productive today–a mission that becomes easier as the day advances, so don’t write the idea off if you have a slow start. If systems or structures in your life need some editing, fixing, or tweaking, now is a good time to pay them attention.
GeminiIn the first half of the day, people are inclined to blow something out of proportion, dear Gemini, with a Mercury-Jupiter aspect influencing the morning. While it can be distracting, the day is just fine for making small or subtle advances that ultimately help you along. You might find ways or make plans that help you to expand your personal horizons. With the Moon moving into your fun and games sector, you’re likely to gravitate towards recreational or leisure activities. It’s particularly refreshing at this time in the lunar month. You are expressive and creative. Be flexible with others, or you may become frustrated with unreliability. Try not to move too fast or jump too quickly into a decision.
CancerYou’re more inclined to want to stick with familiar situations today, dear Cancer, with the Moon’s move into your home and family sector for a two-day stay. In the first half of the day, it’s all too easy to misjudge things, particularly with time, money, and energy requirements. It’s best not to overcommit, or even to commit at all just for now. Concentrating on creating more harmony in the home, whether through seeking balance in your interactions with close loved ones, or adding artistic touches to your home environment, can be successful if you’re flexible. It’s natural at this time of the lunar month to gravitate toward comfortable settings. As you take a breather and reconnect with your feelings or roots, you build faith in yourself.
LeoYou may be making more of something than it deserves in the first half of the day, dear Leo. It’s best to avoid jumping to conclusions, taking casual information coming in with a grain of salt. This can be a busy day, and part of the reason is that your curiosity is strong. You can easily find yourself dabbling in various projects, not wanting to be tied down by any one thing or place. This inclination is due to the Moon’s move into your communications sector. It’s great for diversifying, but it can be difficult to concentrate. While there can be some problems with misunderstandings or misjudgment, your concern and care can certainly help compensate. The tendency to throw energy around today doesn’t have to be a vice. In moderation, it’s a good thing for branching out, connecting, and learning odds and ends. Keep things light and open if possible.
VirgoWith the Moon’s move out of your sign and into your solar second house today, dear Virgo, a good part of you craves simplicity. This emotional need naturally emerges after the Moon spends time in your sign for two-plus days, and it makes sense to honor this craving in healthy ways. Your personal experiences and goals have been in high focus, but now you’re more interested in slowing down and appreciating what you have. Whether you’re building, rooting, or nesting, you do best with a steadier pace right now. Whether you’re productive or happily unproductive, it’s a time for seeking more comfort and satisfaction. Still, in the first half of the day, watch for a tendency to overestimate how much time or energy you have before committing to something significant.
LibraWatch for being too quick on the trigger when speaking or communicating today, dear Libra. It’s best to avoid making assumptions about what others are communicating to you. Patience will serve you better and can bring in positive vibes. The tone is somewhat emotionally heightened with the Moon’s move into your sign. There can be a strong desire to take action today, although it may be difficult to know where to channel this energy. Your emotions and personal needs are emphasized, and you may very well wear them on your sleeve. Nevertheless, if you can channel your energies, it’s a strong day for self-motivation. You are regaining your initiative now, and can be quite spirited today and tomorrow.
ScorpioThe Moon pulls into your privacy sector for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, signaling a need to wind down and regenerate. There is some tendency to go overboard, say or think too much, or promise more than is good for you in the first half of the day. Watch for exaggeration and too-high expectations, and don’t ignore your inner voice today. You have been in demand recently, and you are now very much in need of some downtime or mental space to arrive at decisions and conclusions. You are a little less noticeable and more inclined to withdraw from the demands of everyday life. You can also be a little closed emotionally. Avoid over-exerting yourself. You might aim to detach from the world in some manner and retreat into a reflective space. Patience rewards you.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your solar eleventh house for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius. Now is the time to ease back a little on professional and public matters and put more of yourself, emotionally, into more humanitarian or happiness goals. The Moon’s transits through the sectors of our solar charts teach us both to diversify and to be moderate. Today and tomorrow, it’s best to focus on lighter, more social experiences. It’s a time in the lunar month when it’s best to recognize and appreciate the value of the group or team. You’re craving something unusual or unconventional in your social and romantic life, as the traditional is not necessarily very interesting to you right now. It’s not an ideal day for purchases or financial decisions.
CapricornYour attention is on your work or performance today, dear Capricorn, as the Moon moves into your solar tenth for a couple of days. Even so, your personal life can pull you in, or there could be a disorganized feeling inside that prevents you from feeling entirely efficient. You are especially aware of your image and responsibilities right now. As well, others are more aware of you, particularly in terms of what you have or haven’t done. In this way, you can feel as if you are under some pressure, but if you do your best and answer to yourself, you’ll be in the best shape. In this way, you regain power or control. As well, this can be a strong time for attention to your practical affairs, which is empowering on its own. Solutions to problems or roadblocks seem to be on the horizon.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your sector of spirit for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, and emotional energy is more outgoing, spirited, and ready for something new. You’re more interested in experiencing life without worrying about the particulars. This transit stimulates bigger ideas and thoughts and pulls you away from the pressure of details. Catching some inspiration is the theme or the goal now. In the first half of the day, there can be a tendency to inflate or exaggerate what’s said, or even what’s not communicated, quite possibly to your disadvantage. However, with this inclination tamed and motivation on the rise, today is good for gaining perspective. You are thinking in bigger terms but also streamlining.
PiscesWatch for doing too much in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, when the tendency to misjudge things optimistically is strong. While emotions seem to run more deeply, there is some level of objectivity to the day as well. Today’s energies are good for observation with the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector, where it will stay for a couple of days. When dealing with the deeper recesses of your personality, you tend to seek balance, and this trait is prominent today. Consider spending time experiencing your deepest feelings instead of simply trying to sort them out. It’s not as tidy but can certainly help get you in touch with what truly motivates and moves you. You might also notice different layers of people and situations today.
