Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesConversations can be useful, and learning something useful can figure strongly, dear Aries. You’re motivated and filled up with a strong desire to accomplish something solid and perhaps ambitious. There is great energy for new ideas and interests. A feeling of being on top of things is the best place to be, so avoid taking on too much. This is a particularly good day for resourcefulness and making the best of situations. Still, it’s easy to become very wound up over small problems and details. Discontent can be a little more pronounced than usual. If you can manage your emotions and exercise patience, it’s likely to be a minor disturbance only. The Moon spends the day in your sector of responsibilities, aligning with Jupiter there, and taking care of business can be both practical and enjoyable now.
TaurusToday’s energies are strong for satisfying outlets to channel excess energy, dear Taurus. You’re feeling brave with your affections, not overthinking sharing your ideas, creations, or feelings. You can be especially excited about an idea or hobby. Emotional and mental energy levels run high. You’re also in an amazing position to gain new and interesting experiences. Solving a problem or rising to a challenge can be rewarding. Do watch for a tendency to speak too intellectually about a matter that requires more sensitivity, or on the other side, joking too quickly about a serious matter.
GeminiThere can be quite a bit of excitement in your conversations today, dear Gemini, and you can find yourself enthusiastic about new ideas. Others may not seem to be keeping up with you, but you can accomplish more if you can work independently. Nevertheless, feeding off a competitive feeling can be useful and motivating. The desire to take action on recent ideas for making improvements is strong. There can be good energy for family activities or work around the home. Conversations about or with family or concerning past matters can figure strongly. You are anxious to put the negative behind you, but you could cause a bit of a stir as you make efforts to do so. You have more than usual mental energy. Hidden problems or other tensions can surface, and while annoying, it can be helpful to know about brewing problems before they grow further.
CancerToday’s transits seem to encourage you to diversify and pick up new information or skills, dear Cancer. An independent streak is stimulated, and you may want to work at your own pace to avoid unnecessary obstacles or conflicts. You can be motivated to work on a project or idea and put it into motion, and this is an excellent time to throw yourself into something important to you. You can be very enthusiastic, anxious to make progress and fix problems. Others can be impressed with your ideas or projects, or they appreciate your input more than usual, perhaps feeling inspired to up their game. Consider that while intentions are likely good, the words chosen may not be perfect.
LeoToday is good for taking care of business, dear Leo. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, aligning with Jupiter there. As well, a Mercury-Mars connection fuels your motivation. You may choose to get on top of chores, financial matters, or purchases. Today brings good energy for efforts to modify and build a project. You are in good form mentally, and your sense in business or as a leader is more developed than usual. You can be feeling very enthused about producing and moving forward. There can be an exciting conversation or thoughts about a money-making pursuit. Even so, people can be more sensitive than usual with the Sun and Venus forming a minor challenging aspect. Combine this with a tendency to speak our minds, and there can be some hurt feelings. This transit can stir up minor issues surfacing in relationships, especially problems operating in a hidden way.
VirgoYou have more than usual mental energy today, dear Virgo, along with the courage to express your ideas and opinions. It’s a wonderful time for personal appeal and natural charm. You could find yourself gravitating towards favorable situations, perhaps finding yourself exactly where you need to be at the right time. Motivation levels are excellent, and your attitude is a can-do one. People tend to let you do your thing, and this does everything for improving your mood. You can be pumped up to find answers and to get things done. While it’s possible that you could get into a heated debate or find yourself entirely worked up about an opinion, your desire to be productive tends to win out in the end. There is some tendency to concern ourselves with others’ approval more than is healthy today. It’s best to nip this in the bud if you can. Keep in mind that some off timing is usually temporary.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Libra, encouraging introspection. Outside responsibilities may call on you, but you’ll be anxious to take a break. Centering or pacing yourself gets you back on track. A minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Venus can point to annoyances. It tends to throw light on wants and needs that are inconsistent with what you feel you should do. You’re sensitive to imbalances, particularly in your relationships or with work and responsibilities today. This transit can pull up various unmet needs, but it’s temporary and may be eye-opening. A Mercury-Mars connection helps sharpen your mind and improve decision-making. This may very well be a time of a personal breakthrough or particularly strong memories.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your solar third house, dear Scorpio, enlivening your communications and encouraging you to express your feelings. A Mercury-Mars connection enhances this theme further. You’re likely to find yourself quite busy and engaged. You are interested in sharing, learning, and applying what you learn. You might err on the side of taking on too much. Avoid information overload, but do pay special attention to ideas that emerge now. For best results, be quick but not hasty. It’s a good time to believe in yourself, your ideas, and your work. You might take the lead in a group or with friends or associates. You can be particularly motivated to resolve a problem, particularly friendship- or people-related. Still, there is some tendency to see differences more than similarities in your relationships temporarily, which can lead to some discontent.
SagittariusYou can be mentally busy today, dear Sagittarius, although at times a bit overexcited! While you’re ready to put in some effort to reach your goals, patience is somewhat lacking for the time being. You can quickly take the lead with your ideas and plans. There can be animated discussions or intense think sessions with today’s Mercury-Mars connection. Today is a good time to expand your mind and open up to discoveries, especially regarding longer-term objectives. While there can be moments when you may be super hasty when expressing yourself, you’re in a courageous and capable frame of mind. You can nevertheless be quite sensitive to imbalances and situations that suggest you are unsupported. While we can be quick to express ourselves today, people can also misconstrue things far too easily, so taking extra care with words may be helpful.
CapricornMental energy is robust today, dear Capricorn, and you can feel compelled to take action on an idea or further information. You dare to confront or face problem areas and then move forward. There can be a meaningful conversation. The Moon is in your sign all day and generally well-supported, and you are more in touch with your feelings. Reaching out can bring interesting people into your life. You’re likely to feel more sociable and less focused on work and responsibilities today. You can enjoy some exciting ideas to break out of the usual routine. Watch for a tendency to speak before thinking and getting too wound up about an opinion or belief. Still, there’s nothing wrong with these things in moderation. You could be dealing with some ups and downs due to extra sensitivity to others’ opinions or differences of opinion in general, which you may take personally. Consider that miscommunication and misunderstanding of our own needs may be at the root of interpersonal problems. You could crave company but then itch for freedom.
AquariusYou’re mentally sharp today, dear Aquarius, and you see all of the layers of a situation. There is some tendency to feel a bit restless or unfulfilled, but you’re in good shape with research or investigation, and activities that require mental courage or effort. You can feel especially excited about an idea, and you can enjoy some breakthrough thinking. You might want to address a deeply buried or complicated problem or sort out financial support issues now. The Moon is in your privacy sector all day, emphasizing the need for some level of emotional retreat, but you’re also raring to go, ready to apply yourself to matters that are important to you.
PiscesIt’s an important day for exchanging ideas with others, dear Pisces, particularly related to money matters or practical affairs. Conversations can be animated and enthusiastic. You may be feeling especially excited about a person, an idea, or a feeling. You may get the chance to bring a stronger spirit of acceptance to your interactions. Being active or collaboration can help you arrive at very bright ideas or solutions. You’re bringing a stronger sense of self to a one-to-one interaction. You might find it easier to get something done if you have someone to do it with. Debates are possible, or there can be quite a bit going on with ideas and beliefs now, but hopefully, this serves to stimulate rather than frustrate you. Even so, it’s not easy to buckle down and get work done or concentrate fully. Dissatisfaction has a way of making itself known, and this can be especially true if you stray from your duties or focus.
