Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re in generally excellent shape for work, business, and money matters these days, dear Aries. You may be dealing with some self-doubt and uncertainty today, and it’s a good idea to work through these so that you can embrace opportunities tomorrow and in the weeks ahead. Recognizing that insecurities may be holding you back is important now so that you can take steps to face these fears in constructive ways. You might decide to go within to manage your concerns and put off finalizing or conversing about money or business until later. Self-honesty is especially useful with a Sun-Chiron aspect active today. If you feel a little out of sorts, the adjustments you make to feel more comfortable can lead to bigger and better things. Life getting a little more serious doesn’t have to be a complete downer. It’s a time for dealing with possible technical errors and for getting back on track in some manner.
Creative urges are powerful these days, dear Taurus, although today you can be dealing with some self-doubt. Worry about things you’ve left undone or unfinished can, at times, undermine your enjoyment of the day. While you should listen to your intuition, sometimes self-doubt can seem like a gut feeling when it’s only fear. If you can get past it, you can get a lot done and get in better touch with your feelings about someone at the same time. With the Moon Balsamic, it’s best to work on things that are already in motion than to begin anew (a New Moon occurs on Friday). Sobering moments may very well point you in the direction of making some adjustments that ultimately benefit you. Do whatever is necessary to get yourself back on track, and avoid excess or pushing too hard today.
You can be feeling quite up and down today, dear Gemini, and it’s best to wait things out or work on fixing problems. Something from the past might emerge that can be slightly uncomfortable but later leads to a breakthrough. You’re more sensitive than usual to the atmosphere around you. As long as you use your imagination for productive daydreaming instead of letting it steer you off course, you’ll do well. You may get an idea of what is holding you back from personal growth. The New Moon on Friday will help you turn over a new leaf, and now is the time to consider what may be standing in the way of progress. You may have to redo something you thought was finished or deal with a slight detour or delay now, but handling things can put you in a lighter, fresher place for new opportunities. Focus on accomplishing your goals step by step and one at a time.
Struggling with a decision regarding a love matter, friendship, or a project may give you reason to pause today, dear Cancer. Connections with friends can be enlightening this week and the next, even if somewhat awkward or uncomfortable matter emerges now. Insecurity about work, performance, or life direction issues can crop up, and while doubts can arise today, exploring the reasons behind them can be useful. Try to clear up guilt so that you can take advantage of opportunities as they emerge later. Problem areas do seem to crop up for your attention today, but they alert you to the need to tidy up or attend to practical details, which can be beneficial. With the Moon in your resources sector, too, it’s not the time to be brassy or pushy. Focus on simple activities that gently stimulate you.
This is a generally strong period for work or financial matters, dear Leo. On Friday, a New Moon will help move things forward. Today, you could be doing battle with some doubts or guilt if you’ve been ignoring specific tasks or procrastinating. It’s good timing, even if inconvenient, as tackling these issues can free you up later. It’s best to think in terms of making room for more favorable circumstances in your life by letting go of those things in your life that are counterproductive. The chances are high that you need to deal with minor problems or delays with current transits. You may need to rethink a plan, or a question leaves you stumped. Negative feedback may be part of this. Watch for a tendency to nitpick and worry, and with the Moon in your sign amplifying your emotions, aim to gain perspective.
Minor motivation challenges are possible now, dear Virgo. There are distinct dips and valleys this week, but it’s a great time for catching your bearings before the New Moon in your sign on Friday. You might aim to overcome some of your fears or doubts today or to reflect on attitudes and attachments that are holding you back from growing. You can have a hard time enjoying yourself if you don’t get something productive done, which can free yourself up from guilt and worry. The bigger things will feel smaller as a result. A Sun-Chiron influence with you today has a way of pulling up guilt or unprocessed frustrations and feelings. As well, there can be fussing or worrying about practical problems. You may feel pulled or pushed into a busy pace of life when you’d prefer to relax, digest, and take in. Avoid taking criticisms to heart and instead decide what kind of improvements you can make going forward. Aim to be cautious, but avoid overthinking.
While this is generally a powerful time for tapping into your intuition, dear Libra, there can be spots of doubt to deal with today. Approaching a tricky matter with courage can bring something to light, and this can be relieving. Some discomfort may be integral to the process of moving forward. As you wind down on these days before a New Moon, it’s better to let go of excess baggage than to take on something new. You may be dealing with minor challenges getting your message across or delays, but these can motivate you to make some constructive adjustments. The trick is to be patient and visualize the longterm benefits. Repetitive patterns in communication tend to dominate today, but you can choose to break the cycle, at least on your end. Keep things simple for best results today.
You may be dealing with the need to make adjustments today, dear Scorpio. Or, delays and doubts seem to slow things down a notch. While this is a great time for your social life, and the New Moon on Friday will push you forward, today requires some processing. This is an ideal time for letting go of excess spiritual weight. It may be better to stick to tried and true methods that are easy to fall back on temporarily. Examining your fears and insecurities can be enormously helpful since clearing the decks puts you in a prime position to take advantage of upcoming opportunities. There’s excellent energy with you for solving problems, but this is not to say it’s a smooth ride! Some insecurities can surface, or there could be some anxiety over a recent decision or a work matter. While ambitions are strong right now, so are your needs for some emotional space and freedom. Aim to set things straight and correct errors.
Doubts can emerge, and they may very well need your attention now, dear Sagittarius. However, dwelling on them is counterproductive, while learning from them can help you clear the decks for upcoming opportunities. Aim to examine and manage insecurities so that they don’t hold back from embracing new methods and ideas for improving your life arising this week. Freeing yourself from some guilt or fear can give you the confidence to try on something new. Watch, too, that uncertainty in your personal life doesn’t interfere with work opportunities. Consider that with the waning Moon, you’re better off marinating ideas and feelings than pushing things forward. Think in terms of letting go of the harmful, negative energies in your life to make room for more supportive influences. While there are possible frustrations today, it’s an excellent time to identify flaws, and a learning experience can work in your favor. The Moon’s transit of your solar ninth house helps boost you up.
Doors are likely to open for new experiences involving travel, adventure, romance, or artistic pursuits, dear Capricorn. Today, you may be dealing with some minor doubts, shyness, or hesitation. With a New Moon set to bring new opportunities your way from Friday onward, it’s an especially important time for putting guilt behind you now. It’s better to keep things simple today. Aim to get over a small hump, not by ignoring things but by facing fears and insecurities that cause you to doubt yourself or shy away from opportunities. Clearing up debts or tidying up your environment can go a long way toward greater peace of mind. There can be some delays or misunderstandings to manage today, but you’re willing to put in the work to correct problems. A connection to a special person can be heartwarming today.
Try to avoid coming across as disinterested in situations that would benefit from a more personal approach today, dear Aquarius. It’s best not to overthink or overanalyze social and relationship matters now since dissecting them can take away a bit of their magic. There is a small tendency to doubt things today, and this can help you see areas that need work. Don’t let them rule your day. Ignoring them is not the answer–addressing fears or insecurities with self-honesty is the best approach. It can come in handy with a New Moon set to occur on Friday–clearing the decks now can be helpful. Conversations about typically private matters or the past can be slightly uncomfortable but can bring surprisingly positive results and feelings. The better you’ve dealt with problem areas, the freer you’ll feel to enjoy and embrace new opportunities. You’re in a fantastic position to cleverly and happily resolve a nagging problem.
With just two days before a New Moon in your partnership sector, dear Pisces, now is a fine time for letting go of the negative and making room for more positive in your life. You might have the desire to tuck yourself away so that you can get in touch with your feelings. A Sun-Chiron influence can prompt clearing of the air, as well, or the need for some self-honesty related to financial matters and issues of respect in a relationship. Through disagreements, you can get to a more enlightened position. Make it a mission to clear up unnecessary and unproductive guilt. Things may not be running smoothly today, but you’re also delighted to resolve problems. You may need to pay some attention to items you’ve overlooked or let go, after which life seems far less complicated.
