Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour personal appeal runs high today, dear Aries, and there’s a general spirit of cooperation. You’re in an excellent position to communicate your feelings. Aim to explore your need to enjoy and express yourself. Also today, Mercury, the messenger planet, begins its transit of your partnership sector. Until September 23rd, your ability to consider the other side of the coin strengthens, and this not only helps endear you to others but also allows you to enjoy a whole new perspective. You’re more likely to consult with others, discuss ideas and plans, and seek feedback in the weeks ahead. You gravitate toward people who stimulate your thinking or offer a different perspective. You want intellectual companionship, or connecting through the mind figures strongly during this period.
TaurusIf you need to get your bearings, dear Taurus, today can deliver. The Moon spends the day in your sector of home and nurture, meeting Venus there. It’s not the time to push new projects forward. You seek balance in your interactions with close loved ones and a sense of peace or harmony in your personal life. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your work and health sector, where it will visit until September 23rd (and later, from October 10-29). During this cycle, you focus on procedures and methods, perfecting projects, completing chores, and organizing your living and working spaces. It’s a perfect time for updating skills and learning topics that help improve your work and health. It’s also an active cycle for reorganizing and attending to the details in your daily life.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Gemini, inclining you to dabble rather than specialize. The Moon’s meeting with Venus ensures that you thoroughly enjoy the process! You might gain new information at just the right time today. Mercury begins its transit of your solar fifth house, where it will visit until September 23rd. It’s a good cycle for self-expression, socializing, and spontaneous conversation or learning. In the weeks ahead, there is an easier flow of communication and a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity. You can be a little more creative or playful with your words and bolder about sharing your views. Attractions can be more intellectual during this cycle, or you draw in people through your intelligence and wit.
CancerYou crave more stability and a stronger sense of security today, dear Cancer, with the Moon in your sector of resources. Slowing down may be good for you now. It’s a fine time to protect, improve, or build your resources. Also today, Mercury moves into your sector of heart, home, and family. Until September 23rd, it can be particularly busy at home or with family, and there can be valuable learning lessons through contact with loved ones. You can be more preoccupied with personal and domestic matters now. There can be some revealing and warm conversations in the weeks ahead. You have a stronger sense of others’ moods or needs. You seek special moments or patches of rest and a break from overthinking and overdoing during this cycle.
LeoToday can be good for enjoying the pleasant vibes of the Moon coming together with Venus, both in your sign, dear Leo. You’re likely to want some extra special “me time,” and favorable energy is with you for self-expression, friendship, and a positive self-image. Whether or not you’re more emotional than usual, you’re certainly more in touch with what you’re feeling. Mercury, the messenger planet, begins its transit of your communications sector today, boosting and speeding up your daily affairs until September 23rd. It’s a pleasant transit and can feel like a breath of fresh air, although there can be times when it’s difficult to concentrate. Learning, speaking, writing, and transportation matters are in focus. You more thoroughly enjoy taking in and relaying information. If you avoid mental strain or stress, you’ll reap the rewards of this cycle of information-gathering and improved connections.
VirgoYou’re coming to the end of a lunar cycle and need some time to recoup your energies, dear Virgo. You find it particularly pleasant to pay special attention to your inner world. Mercury moves into your solar second house today and influences this sector of your chart until September 23rd. Mercury in your sign for the past several weeks has helped you sort things out and get your mental priorities straight, but now you’re more preoccupied with practical affairs and are looking to build and see tangible results for your efforts. In truth, Mercury will return to your sign on September 23rd in retrograde motion, but for now, it’s a great time to consider improvements to business pursuits or money situation. You prefer to keep things simple during this cycle. When stressed, there can be some worry or overstimulation related to money, possessions, and resources. Otherwise, it’s a great time to build and develop your ideas and projects.
LibraToday’s Moon makes it easier than usual to enjoy or make simple, straightforward connections, dear Libra. The atmosphere is refreshing. It can be a comfortable, pressure-free day for relating to friends, associates, and partners. Also today, Mercury heads into your sign, where it will visit until September 23rd, and later, from October 10-29. The cycle ahead is busy, engaging, and on the ball. Your words have more impact, and decisions come more readily and spontaneously now. With Mercury in your corner, you can enjoy improved decision-making, alertness, and curiosity. Your interest in the world around you–especially communicating with it–increases many times over. While you were (mostly) content to keep your observations to yourself in recent weeks, you’re now craving a little more interaction. Still, this is a time when you make more executive decisions, worrying less about feedback and more about what genuinely works for you.
ScorpioToday’s transits make it easy to enjoy the rewards of recent accomplishments, dear Scorpio, and to consider or set new goals. Your responsibilities can bring particular joy, or you have a good sense of business and leadership. Mercury moves into your privacy sector today and will visit until September 23rd, and then later, from October 10-29. This transit closes up a communications cycle, and it makes sense to review, assess, or re-assess recent projects, interests, and studies. It’s also a good time for tying up loose ends on a project or study or wrapping up a project. You might often look behind or within you for answers during this cycle, and you might take extra time for contemplation, meditation, research, and behind-the-scenes study or work. Decision-making can be a longer, more careful process during this cycle.
SagittariusYou’re seeking pleasure through a change of scene or break from the usual routine today, dear Sagittarius. It can be a good time to release stress. There could be a chance to pursue a special interest. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your solar eleventh house, where it will visit until September 23rd, and then later, from October 10-29. The cycle ahead is vital for inventive new ideas, sharing your thoughts with others, and successful (or at least happy) networking. Valuable learning experiences can result from connecting with friends, associates, or groups. Contributing and collaborating may bring rewards. You’re more inclined to reach out for inspiration, and friends are especially responsive and interested. This Mercury transit can stir some enthusiasm for a dream or pet project.
CapricornYou can feel particularly comfortable with your feelings and desires today, dear Capricorn. You’re inclined to want to take a break from “doing” so that you can observe and strategize. You’re attracted to all that’s hidden or subtle and multi-layered now. However, Mercury moves into your career and reputation sector today, where it will visit until September 23rd and later return from October 10-29. It’s a period for taking care of business, showing off your skills or getting attention for your abilities, and packing a stronger punch in your communications. You take more interest in–and give more thought to–your longer-term goals, career, reputation, and responsibilities. Others may want to hear from you more than usual. Because your words are more impactful during this cycle, spending a little more time crafting what you want to say and present to the world makes sense.
AquariusYou’re focusing more closely on relationships and companionship today, dear Aquarius, with the Moon in your partnership sector all day. You can feel good about sharing your experiences with someone, or feedback is useful. Cooperation comes more readily, and you may be in the position to strike a deal or compromise. Also today, Mercury heads into your solar ninth house of higher learning, spirit, sharing, and adventure. This year’s transit is spread over two periods: from today until September 23rd and October 10-29. It’s a good cycle for communications and broad thinking. You are a little more hopeful and optimistic than usual, and you’re especially spontaneous and free with your ideas and thoughts. You might discover a new interest, or you could be pursuing a particular topic with more vigor during this cycle.
PiscesYou’re noticing more details than usual today, dear Pisces, and you’re inclined to enjoy solving problems as long as you can manage them at a gentle pace. Mixing work with pleasure is not always successful, but there’s much potential for it to work today. Also today, Mercury enters your shared resources sector, where it will transit until September 23rd. During this new cycle, you more often read between the lines and strategize. You may be doing some valuable research or investigation. It’s a good time for deep, interesting conversations with others and self-discovery as well. You might sort out trouble areas or mediate and negotiate better relations, finances, support, and life strategies. You may be doing more troubleshooting than usual, and you’re very successful at this task during this cycle.
