Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could feel somewhat torn between wanting to collaborate and preferring to stick with what’s most comfortable and secure today, dear Aries. As such, if you can manage it, a compromise makes sense. It can be a time to make adjustments and take steps to improve your situation. Relationship opportunities and fulfillment through partnerships are in focus, and this is only set to increase in the coming weeks. Because the Moon spends the day in your resources sector, keeping things comfortable and straightforward seems to satisfy most. It’s a good idea to regroup or take time for the things that truly matter. This way, you can bring your best self to your connections and interactions.
TaurusToday’s energy is good for seeing where you might improve your work, routines, or self-care pursuits, dear Taurus. However, there can be some adjustments to make before you feel comfortable. Your ruler, Venus, forms an awkward aspect with Uranus in your sign, and it can be challenging integrating your desire for personal independence and your need to attend to your duties or chores. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and taking the lead or taking charge comes readily as the day advances. Others are attracted to your naturally confident approach.
GeminiYou could feel edgy if you feel caged in or if people are trying to pin you down to an answer or a commitment in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. Take extra breaks or rest periods, if possible. It’s time to shake things up but do so in ways that don’t rock the boat, as it isn’t easy to get away with it right now. Recognize that you might be in reaction mode and aim to keep things real. You may need to release frustration now, and fortunately, great energy is with you for doing so. The Moon spends the day in the background of your solar chart, and its harmony with Mars in your home and family sector boosts your motivation to tap into your deeper needs and feelings.
CancerIt’s better not to mix business and pleasure today, dear Cancer. Your heart can be in two places today, and while you want to feel safe and surround yourself with the familiar, something calls on you to move out of your comfort zone. While today can get off to an indecisive start, good energy is with you for smoothing things out as the day advances. You’re ready to make the most of a situation. Confronting a problem, rather than sidestepping it, is your best bet now. Keeping your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences, but it’s also important to honor your need for relaxation.
LeoTasks that require deliberate action or concentration are not likely to thrive today, dear Leo, but more metaphysical, creative, or spiritual matters can benefit from the imagination with you now. Be sure to watch for communications that don’t express what you truly feel. In addition, you could be reading too much into what others are saying. You have loads of motivation to achieve and produce today, however. Enjoy the feelings of inspiration, and don’t let impatience spoil things. Also consider that if you have too much on your plate, you may end up feeling quite hemmed in or restless.
VirgoTransits stir you to explore and discover today, dear Virgo. The Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, encouraging you to shoot a little higher. At the same time, Venus and Uranus form an awkward angle, pitting your needs for comfort and security against these drives to discover or learn new things. Different settings or experiences can be most refreshing, although part of you can resist the urge to do something new. You may need to strike a compromise. Watch that your frustration with indecision doesn’t lead you to jump into something impulsively. Instead, aim to honor both your desire for a predictable pace and your need for a little more stimulation.
LibraYou can experience some extra sensitivity to friends’ reactions and comments today, dear Libra, and a tendency to rebel as a result! The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, encouraging you to dig a little more deeply in whatever activity you take on. For the most part, it’s natural to do so, but you’ve been discovering fun ways to detach or experiment these days that allow you to enjoy yourself more fully. For now, these drives seem to clash. Consider that you may be spending too much time reacting to your feelings instead of simply connecting with them. Watch for rushing a financial or intimate matter.
ScorpioIt’s not an ideal time for winning favors, dear Scorpio. Still, it’s a good time for pondering the behaviors or situations that are holding you back from going after what you want from life. The Moon aligns with Uranus in your partnership sector today, encouraging your need for interesting feedback or companionship. However, part of you needs your space and time to get to your own conclusions. With different needs and drives competing for your attention, it’s not the best time for clarity. However, you’re focusing on moving on and improving, and with this attitude, you can put problems behind you today.
SagittariusThere can be divided feelings today, dear Sagittarius, more likely surrounding friends and acquaintances, work, or health. People could be a little withholding or detached, and you may not know where they stand. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, encouraging you to handle your practical affairs. It’s not easy to fit in everything you want to do since you have so much on your mind, and it makes sense to simplify. Expressing yourself with intention and enthusiasm can help cut through the fluff.
CapricornThere can be disagreements about values or concepts of love today, dear Capricorn. Aim to do what makes you feel good from the inside out. If you are feeling overwhelmed, take steps to bring more balance in your life and ask for help. Today’s Moon reminds you of the need for light entertainment and fun, even though you’ve been enjoying working toward more serious goals these days. You seem to need that extra spark right now, even if it’s pulling you off the track temporarily. The trick may be to find a good balance.
AquariusThe Moon in your solar fourth house all day encourages a reflective frame of mind, dear Aquarius. A hiatus can be refreshing now, but you have to allow yourself the opportunity! There can be some defensiveness or misinterpretation of social cues with Venus in awkward angle to your ruler, Uranus. Before it spirals, consider whether or not it’s better to drop something and move on. People may not be especially confident or reliable at the moment. Centering yourself now may be necessary to share yourself more freely and happily with others later.
PiscesThere can be issues that stir up feelings of anxiety or possibly even guilt today, dear Pisces, but do your best not to let these things interfere with your relationships. Issues can reach a stalemate today if both parties are not willing to listen to the other side. Today’s energies are less than ideal for agreements or balance. However, with a few adjustments, you’re likely to feel more confident. With the Moon in your solar third house all day, it’s a time for enjoying some variety or following your curiosity. While it may not be the best day for concentration, you can be productive if you put your mind to it.
