Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mercury in your solar sixth house in the past weeks, dear Aries, there may have been more mental work or menial tasks in your life. With Mercury challenged as it is today, the details of your everyday life may have been all-consuming. You might feel a little scattered. Watch for nit-picking and nervous tension! Stifling situations and activities that restrict you seem more plentiful these days, but today you could feel a little caged in. Aim to have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of too-optimistic thinking, which can put you in a state where you have your blinders on.
TaurusIt’s hard to tolerate stifling situations and activities that restrict you today, dear Taurus. Mercury is in a challenging aspect to Uranus, currently transiting your sign. In recent weeks, Mercury has transited your creative sector, bringing more drama, playfulness, and fun to your communications. Today’s Mercury-Uranus clash may stir up some problems, however, possibly from something you say or how others interpret you. A relationship could feel a little competitive. Even so, surprises can bring interesting insight into your true feelings or could prompt a mental detour that leads to positive change. You don’t have to take others into your confidence if you aren’t ready to, but be as honest as possible with yourself for best results now. It’s best to be cautious if you’re thinking of throwing out an in-progress project, as the feeling can pass. Distinguish between making changes for the sake of change and making changes that will truly move you forward.
GeminiInner changes are brewing, dear Gemini, and you may not know precisely what they are, but you feel that change is necessary. Actions today can be impulsive, however. If driven by a desire to rid yourself of certain unpleasant elements of the past, there may not be a quick fix at the moment, but aim to be honest with yourself. Devise a game plan for future use. With your ruler in a challenging aspect with Uranus today, the desire to shake things up can be with you. Know what needs changing and why, or you could just be stirring up trouble. The Moon enters your sign today, bringing any emotions you’ve brushed to the side up to the surface. With the Moon in your sign, your own needs are your primary concern, and if you’ve been ignoring them, you could feel a bit of an emotional flood now.
CancerUnusual and surprising energy is with you in your social life today, dear Cancer. Others may challenge your perspective on life. Your goals are also going through a metamorphosis of sorts. Watch today for some impatience with others. In recent weeks, there has been much mental energy or busywork that kept you on your toes. Today, this can serve to go too far, make you tense, and possibly even disrupt your workflow. Watch for impulsiveness in your speech and in transit if you’re feeling stressed out. However, pay attention to new ideas, which may be raw for now, but quite creative and even inspired. The Moon enters your privacy sector today, lending you a somewhat withdrawn manner. It’s a natural time of the lunar month for pulling back from the more demanding or competitive elements of your life to reconnect with yourself.
LeoOff-the-cuff remarks can land you in hot water today, dear Leo, but keeping things to yourself can be frustrating as well. Try to come to a compromise where you choose your words more carefully but express your discontent nonetheless. There can be some pressure from the outside, and this can stir escapist feelings. Technical problems can emerge, particularly related to transit, publishing, money, and personal possessions. Something caging you in can be most frustrating, but you may not be happy with what feels like neglect when given the freedom to do your own thing. Aim to attend to your own needs and the demands on you in as balanced a manner as possible because ignoring either can bring up guilt or leave you feeling behind.
VirgoThe need for freedom from restrictions is strong today, dear Virgo. Disagreements or inner conflicts experienced now can stem from a sense that your desires are not in tune with your higher ideals. The way you view the world and experience the meaning of life is turning upside down. Today, there can be some reservations, guilty feelings, or past matters that need handling for you to truly feel good about pursuing your new interests. With Mercury in your sign in recent weeks, you may have been busier than usual and perhaps had more decisions that you felt you needed to make on your own. Today, Mercury forms a challenging aspect with Uranus – a mild one, but it could be just enough that you feel restless. The trick is to find where you need to change up the routine. Try to give your mind a bit of a break, if you have the chance to, by exploring a new interest or simply getting a breath of fresh air. The Moon moves into your professional sector today, stimulating a need to shine, improve, and perform.
LibraYou can experience an impulsive streak today, dear Libra. If you’ve been suppressing yourself, impatience with a situation can come on quite suddenly now. Unexpected events can occur that nudge you along a different path. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life comes now. It’s a period of freeing yourself from compulsive behavior that has been holding you back. With Mercury in your privacy sector in the last weeks, it’s been important to know when you are crossing the line from analyzing the past to improve the present, to obsessing over things you cannot undo. With Mercury challenged today, try not to go overboard. Nervous tension is possible now if you can’t seem to turn your mind off. For best results, reduce stimulants and simplify your day as much as possible. It’s not the time to jump into something without first considering your options. If you don’t know where you’re going, how fast you go is immaterial, so try to slow down. The Moon moves into your adventure sector today, and this shift tends to pull you out of yourself. It’s a time for experimenting and dreaming.
ScorpioIt’s not an ideal time to rely on others today, dear Scorpio, and especially a partner or close friend, whose desire for freedom, or impatience, can certainly produce some waves in your own life right now. Consider whether relationship changes are something that you need to grow. Freeing yourself from the role of the passive bystander in your own life is what this can be about. Mercury in your solar eleventh house these last weeks has encouraged inventive and progressive thinking, but with its challenging aspect to Uranus today, you might take it out of bounds. Watch for jumping forward with ideas that are undeveloped or speaking too soon about a matter. Instead of developing the skills you need now, out of a bit of boredom, you might feel the temptation to jump into something new. Unfortunately, this may only serve to add too much to your life, and you could feel stressed and stretched out. You may need to mix up your routines to feel a little more engaged.
SagittariusChanges that you’ve experienced with your work and daily routines, dear Sagittarius, you might now see in a new light. You recognize that letting go of something you’ve been using as a crutch is the best thing for you. Still, adapting to a changeful working environment can be stressful at times. It’s more rewarding when you realize you can meet the challenges. Nevertheless, avoid jumping into something prematurely today. The usual routine may not seem very appealing today, particularly on a mental level, as you can be feeling hungry for mental stimulation and new ideas. With too much going on around you, you may not be able to appreciate these things even if they do emerge. Try to breathe new life into your current projects and priorities rather than chasing excitement that may only serve to bog you down or leave you feeling behind. You are learning new skills that will benefit you for years to come. It seems best that as you adapt, you maintain your own personal style.
CapricornThe regular, usual routine is likely to change, dear Capricorn, and underlying this is your inner need for excitement and freedom from restrictions. Today, avoid an abrupt, impatient, or defensive manner for best results as Uranus challenges Mercury just before it changes signs. It’s a good time for dreaming up big ideas, but not necessarily for their practical implementation. What you may want to watch for today is chasing different ideas and experiences just because you are a little restless or bored with what you’re doing. Try to simplify things rather than taking on more. Also, impatience in your communications or transit can lead to problems now. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be drawing conclusions too quickly. New ideas can draw you in, but it’s essential to know whether you truly have room to pursue a whole new project or interest, and if not, whether you can make room for it.
AquariusChanges in your domestic situation or your inner world are likely to occur or feel imminent these days, dear Aquarius. You could feel caged in and desirous of change today. Feeling unsettled or insecure is possible if a situation arises in which you feel inexperienced. While you’re attracted to new ideas and topics of study, but you might be losing time for the things you need to do for your life to run smoothly. Taking on new things without truly making room for them can add a lot of unnecessary stress to your life. Satisfy your need for change and mental stimulation today in small, balanced ways by changing up your routine or approaching your chores and duties differently.
PiscesThere’s a tendency to ignore or overlook important details today, dear Pisces, which can eventually trip you up if you jump into something too soon. You might surprise yourself by opening up and sharing something that you have kept quiet. However, it’s all too easy to act impulsively right now, especially with ideas and communications. While you’re itching to change your situation, risky moves may not be wise for the moment. People around you may be a little unreliable, or they might come up with unusual news. People may be challenging your ideas or simply changing your view of them. However, you may make a surprise connection that shakes up your perspective or line of thinking.
