Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Aries, and you seek out an anchor. It’s a good time of the month to settle in and assess your situation before moving forward. While your mental focus is frequently on work, health, chores, or routine matters these days, decisions may not be straightforward to make today. Your mind tends to wander today, and you don’t have as much patience with details. Under these conditions, it’s probably best to wait and see. As the day advances, you want to feel more in control of your life, and you can empower yourself by setting manageable goals.
TaurusThe Moon moves out of your privacy sector and into your sign today, dear Taurus, and emotions come forcefully to the surface, ready to make connections. A minor challenging Mercury aspect today can make decisions a little tricky, however. Playful or casual conversation may not work well in professional or public settings, leading to misunderstandings. There can be some scattering of mental energies. To have fun or to take care of business – that is the question today! It’s best not to get too hung up on it, for you may very well end up doing not much of anything if you do. Fun and responsibility are not mutually exclusive, and it might take some creativity to combine them. You can vacillate between logic and desire, and it can be difficult to find a bottom line, so defer truly important decision-making to another day.
GeminiThe Moon moves into your privacy sector today, dear Gemini, and you gravitate to behind-the-scenes or unassuming activities. Energies are on the challenging side for making good, clear decisions today, but it’s a fine time for playing with ideas. You may want to solve a problem or focus on a particular project, but restlessness keeps your mind from concentrating on the task at hand. Others might challenge your thinking on a matter quite unexpectedly, which can also lead you on tangents. You do need some personal space or time to think. Fortunately, once you get it, you can feel far more centered. As well, good energy is with you for family activities or work around the home.
CancerDecisions can be challenging to come by or jumped into too quickly today, dear Cancer. Either way, it’s likely misinformation or overthinking that plays with your head now. Your gut feelings tend to conflict with the messages your head or intellect is giving you. You might give off mixed signals as part of you is living in the brain, and the other part is trying to tune into your intuition without much success temporarily. As well, others’ responses can be tentative. Your plans and ideas can be big, but it’s best to keep expectations of yourself and others realistic. Interests are plentiful right now, however, and that certainly does feel good. While this is not an ideal day for making decisions since you may be on the fence about more than one issue, the Moon’s move into your social sector helps you take things lightly.
LeoThere can be some confusion or indecision to deal with today, or frustrations communicating, dear Leo. A moral or philosophical issue might weigh heavily on your mind. Reviewing the past may be productive and insightful if you don’t dwell too much on it or let it control your mood and distract you from the tasks at hand. You are especially practical-minded and independent in your thinking these days, but another part of you enjoys consulting with others. A feeling of being slightly off your game is possible today. However, it’s straightforward for you to use your natural talents or resources to pursue your goals. You can overcome obstacles more easily now, particularly as you can be determined to move forward.
VirgoWatch for talking ahead of yourself today, dear Virgo, as there could be regret at a later date for what you say or commit to now. Try not to leave some people behind or confused. There can be some indecision or concerns related to work, health, or schedules. Promises made are unlikely to be easy or interesting to carry out when you’re called to task. You might aim to attend to your resources but not stress over things that you imagine might happen. Fortunately, the Moon moves into harmony with your sign for a couple of days. You might enjoy working off steam through a non-routine pursuit. It’s a good time to release yourself from intense emotions.
LibraThere can be some minor tensions or difficulties reaching sound decisions today, dear Libra. Watch for speaking too soon or making promises and committing to something that later holds no appeal. There can be a tendency to say something that you later regret or wonder why you said it at all. Be particularly sensitive to any overoptimism or exaggeration in others’ responses that can mislead you today. The focus of conversation may run counter to your goals and interests at the moment. As long as you realize that today is more about enjoying the moment than locking something down, this can be an easy, successful day. It helps that the Moon moves into your intimacy sector today, which tends to improve your observational skills.
ScorpioYou are people-focused today with the Moon’s move into your partnership sector, dear Scorpio. It’s a little easier to see your life through someone else’s eyes or slip into the shoes of a significant person in your life. However, there can be some missteps or misunderstandings with friends or networks. Watch for over-the-top expectations. Transit today can lead to seeing things unclearly, which in turn can fuel faulty decision-making. There can be exaggeration or misinformation to deal with, which can be genuine learning experiences as long as you avoid jumping to conclusions or jumping into a decision based on these things. Choose your cause wisely today. The chances are high that intentions are good and that misunderstandings and oversensitivity are behind problematic interactions today, so give it time before taking it to heart.
SagittariusYou may be called on to speak or advise now, dear Sagittarius, and while this can ultimately lead to rewards, some missteps are a little more likely today. Decisions you make now might be based on the wrong information or dramatic observations. Speaking or promising something too soon can backfire. These days, you’re thinking quite a bit about performance, long-term goals and plans, and recognition. Today, there can be inadequate information or news coming in that skews perceptions. Casual comments may be taken out of context or more seriously than intended. Minor timing matters aside, today can be strong for handling various issues that you can feel relief as you put them behind you.
CapricornTransits today can leave you feeling a little lazy mentally or hazy on the details, dear Capricorn. While your intentions are good and perhaps big when learning new things and expanding your thinking, part of you wants to keep things simple, uncomplicated, and familiar. It’s all good as long as you avoid making significant decisions based on your perceptions today. Timing may be off, and purchases perhaps unwise or hasty. Your appetite for pleasure is robust right now, and if you can control this while still enjoying yourself, you’re in excellent shape. Conditions are suitable for feeding your spirit.
AquariusYou might feel pressure to make a decision you don’t yet feel equipped to make, dear Aquarius. Your safest bet is to wait things out, if possible. Ideas today are unlikely to be moderate or realistic, or the information you have at your disposal is incomplete. Overthinking things doesn’t help things, but it can take a while to figure that out! Enjoy yourself, but avoid driving yourself to excess today, as sluggishness can be the end result. Private time or personal space can be particularly helpful now, not only for tapping into your intuition but also because the Moon moves into your home and family sector today.
PiscesWith the Moon moving into your communications sector, dear Pisces, you may be living in your head a lot today. There can be some struggle with indecision due to overthinking, but staying on the fence about a matter may be preferable to hasty decision-making. There could also be a battle between your head and your heart so that what comes out of you may not be what you truly mean! Communications can go awry in relationships, and there can be some disconnects or vacillation, and perhaps some regrets or focus on uncomfortable topics. However, with a few adjustments, you can find unique ways to relate and interact.
