Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe day holds good energy for relating and understanding your needs, dear Aries, particularly regarding your relationships. There can be some tension between your desire for companionship and your urge for more freedom or independence. Still, spending more time on someone else’s plans or needs can give you a refreshing break. You can feel particularly pumped up about a romantic or creative idea or activity, but it may be that your expectations are too high, and you end up looking for something that the world can’t serve you at the moment. Today’s promises can be hard to keep later because people do not see their capabilities clearly as Venus and the Moon clash with Jupiter. Others may be stepping over your boundaries today, or you may receive mixed messages, and your imagination can be more misleading than supportive. You might also make a surprising connection that shakes up your perspective.
TaurusToday’s transits may seem to challenge you to see two sides of a situation, dear Taurus. Too-high expectations or impatience to get to the reward can play with your mood, but if you keep these things in check, you can find much to enjoy. Still, there can be feelings of being torn in spots today, and there’s a tendency to indulge or even enable others to smooth over problems or to give yourself a break. If you discover that you’re not equipped right now to deal with problems, resolve to come back to them on a less emotional and more logical day. It’s a time of being a little scattered, and it’s a good idea to reorient yourself.
GeminiThere can be some restlessness today, dear Gemini, and it’s probably best for you to allow yourself the luxury of some release from pressure or tension. The Moon heads into your sector of leisure and joy for a stay of over two days. However, you could feel somewhat torn between personal interests and a commitment to someone. You might see a situation in a more positive or negative light than it deserves. You’ll attract the most luck if you tone down the tendency to overdo or overindulge. As well, you may want to avoid putting too much into what others promise since judgment can be off today.
CancerWith the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house, dear Cancer, you’ll want to enjoy some release of ambitions, tension, or pressure. However, it can be difficult to pull yourself away. There can be a struggle giving yourself to this idea, but it’s temporary. As well, the imbalance can lead to a good middle ground. Dialing things back a little can help you pull positive energy and healing through comforting, quiet activities. Jupiter’s influence today can exaggerate your desires for something that might not have actual value to you in the long term. Try to treat these as whims and fancies of the moment.
LeoThe Moon moves into your communications sector for a stay of over two days, dear Leo. Especially with some minor challenges involving Jupiter today, it can be difficult to focus or concentrate. Your appetite for pleasure is stronger than usual right now, and with Jupiter exaggerating things, perhaps even more so today. However, it can be challenging to satiate just for now, probably because expectations are a little too high. As well, you might try to be a little more vigilant than usual with details that are easy to overlook. Still, pay attention to new ideas, which may be raw for now, but quite creative and even inspired.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your solar second house today, dear Virgo, for a stay of over two days, and you crave more predictability. Something can challenge your need to simplify and take care of basics, however, generating some restlessness. You may not be sure whether you want to go your own way or lean on others. There can be moments when you’re focusing more on the big picture than the details at hand and missing essential things in the process. Part of you doesn’t feel up to dealing with anything difficult or tricky right now. In fact, you can be attracted to the easy way out temporarily. Aim to wait and see.
LibraThe Moon enters Libra today, where it will visit for over two days, dear Libra. There can be restless moments with the Moon in your sign opposite Jupiter, but it’s a great time for understanding your needs through some trial and error! You might want to watch for the temptation to overdo or overindulge. Others’ demands on you may seem over the top. Or, you’re trying to please someone and at the same time striving for independence. Whichever the case, it’s best to avoid excess. You’re better off keeping things even and smooth now so that you’re not at a disadvantage later. Other transits can leave you feeling torn between pleasure and work, and you might worry that you’re not going to have fun with either choice. Disagreements or inner conflicts you experience today can stem from a sense of your desires not being in tune with your higher ideals. Try to give your mind a bit of a break, if you have the chance to, by exploring a new interest or enjoying a change of pace.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house for over two days, dear Scorpio, and you may need a break from the routine and time to decompress. Even so, with Jupiter in your work and health sector, you can often find yourself especially busy, and it can be challenging to pull yourself away. Aim to find a balance between working and resting or attending to physical needs and emotional renewal. You can be generous with your time and energy but not especially practical as Venus and Jupiter form a minor challenging aspect. It’s probably best to simplify your day and reduce stimulants.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your sector of dreams, wishes, happiness, and friendship, dear Sagittarius, for a stay of over two days. Ideally, it’s a time to catch your breath, although you could experience some push-pull energy with the Moon opposite Jupiter today. With a lot going on in your personal life, it’s not always easy to balance your interests. With Venus in minor difficult aspect to Jupiter as well, it’s best to tame the tendency to overdo. One way to keep tension minimal is to avoid making big promises when you’re feeling especially optimistic as you may be overshooting. Instead of developing the skills you need now, out of a bit of boredom, you could be wanting to jump into something new, but this may only serve to add too much to your life to the point that you are stressed and stretched out.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your sector of responsibilities for a visit of over two days, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to get in touch with and focus on your priorities. Still, with Jupiter in your family sector under minor strain today, a lot is going on inside, and it’s challenging to juggle everything you want to accomplish. It may not be straightforward to focus, as you’re too easy to distract today. Be especially aware of a tendency to people-please since promises made now can be challenging to fulfill later. There is a temptation to apply quick fixes to problem areas, and in this way, you may be borrowing from the future–the problem will return later on when it’s likely to be even harder to manage. Avoid glossing over difficult areas, but if you need a break, promise yourself you’ll make time for it.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your sector of spirit, dear Aquarius, for a visit of over two days. It’s a good time for connecting with your need for emotional and mental refreshment. However, you can feel a little tense or in a situation of “too much information” in spots today. Too many choices can be overwhelming! You have a bigger-than-usual appetite for taking on new interests or developing existing ones, which is usually great. Still, the temptation may be to go overboard with this. Watch for taking on too much when releasing tension is better for you now. A Venus-Jupiter aspect blurs your understanding of your actual needs temporarily. Watch for a tendency to focus on everything but the most important thing on your agenda, but if you genuinely need a break, promise yourself that you’ll take one as soon as it’s appropriate.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a stay of over two days, dear Pisces, and you’re inclined to pay more attention to your inner world, attachments, and passions. The Moon and Venus battle Jupiter today, pointing to a tendency to overindulge or overspend. However, kept in check or simply in moderation, you can enjoy yourself and learn a little something about your needs. You may not always know where to direct your attention, and with this indecision, you may accomplish very little! This is not a big day for productivity, and you may feel tired or worn out merely thinking about all that you want to achieve. It’s better to approach things one step at a time because feeling overwhelmed is quite possible now and can lead to either stretching yourself too thin or avoidance and procrastination.
