Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Aries, emphasizing your need for others and the power of making connections. While connecting well is likely later today, timing can be off in the first half of the day. Decisions about work or health can be challenging. The temptation to veer away from a path can also be strong if you don’t deal with the true problem behind your restlessness. Distractions or divided interests could undercut your efforts. You may want to help others or get your work done today, but you also have a strong need to do things independently or to pursue your personal interests as the Sun in your service sector clashes with Jupiter in your sign. This dilemma can only be resolved by toning things down and compromising, but it can be challenging getting to that state.
TaurusModeration is wise now but not so straightforward to put into practice in the first half of the day, dear Taurus, with the Sun and Jupiter in an awkward aspect. You can feel a strong desire to connect with others yet also to keep to yourself, leaving you feeling torn. But if you get too hung up on decision-making, you can miss out on accomplishing much of anything. The first half of the day is best for making adjustments and compromises that are not especially easy but necessary. As the day advances, you can feel much more at peace. It becomes far more natural to pace yourself.
GeminiThe desire to stick with what’s familiar is strong, dear Gemini, with the Sun currently transiting your home and family sector. However, the Sun and Jupiter are on different wavelengths today, and the desire to break new ground can compete with this conservative influence. You may have problems balancing your social and private life, and it’s best to try to find the middle road and aim for moderation. Instead, you might swing between remaining in a state of limbo and acting on impulse, and again, finding a balance is best, and fortunately, the day’s energies make this easier as it progresses. Try not to pressure yourself to do it all.
CancerThe desire to accomplish something significant is with you today, dear Cancer, but you can have an equally compelling need to pursue your interests or explore your options. Because you can’t reasonably manage to do both full-on at once, you may decide to tone things down. Otherwise, you’re likely to be stuck in limbo, not entirely satisfied with anything that transpires. Routines and regular life can seem particularly dull to you today. However, as the day advances, a Moon-Saturn trine is in play, and it’s easier to tame your restlessness. You’re not as interested in “doing it all,” which helps improve your mood considerably.
LeoOn one hand, you may want to do something out of the ordinary and explore new places or ideas, dear Leo, and on the other, you need to get comfortable. This is due to the Sun in your resources sector encouraging you to play it safe and stick to what you know in an awkward aspect to Jupiter. Jupiter is in your adventure and spirit sector, stirring the desire to branch out and try something entirely new. For best results, dream up ways to satisfy your freedom-seeking side and your equally strong need to keep things straightforward and familiar. Aim for moderation so that whatever you decide to do doesn’t feel overwhelming. As the day advances, your sectors of communication and partnership link up nicely, and there can be constructive conversations and areas of focus.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your comfortable solar second house, dear Virgo, and your needs for security and familiarity are strong. However, there can be some indecision today, as you’re a little more inclined to act on ego or emotion rather than reason, particularly related to relationships. Try not to overthink. However, if you are leaning towards making a commitment today, make sure you are considering all the factors. You might take on a challenge or project that eventually becomes a burden, as there is a tendency to overestimate your interest in something or underestimate the time and energy you’d need to complete it. As the day advances, you find it more straightforward to focus on the present.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Libra, and your emotions are on your sleeve! The first half of the day can feel undecided. You may be dealing with competing urges–between going it alone and sharing your activities with a companion. As much as possible, try not to procrastinate or commit to something that seems a little beyond your means today. If you attempt to do it all, you may overreach and regret it later. It’s a little too easy to become irritable. You could be running on a short fuse now so that even minor differences lead to big ones. Try not to make assumptions prematurely. Taming restlessness can go a long way toward having a good day, and you get help from steady Saturn as the day advances.
ScorpioWith the Moon in the sign behind yours all day, dear Scorpio, ideally, you’ll find ways to catch your breath. You may need a little more time to yourself than usual. Still, there can be pulls towards socializing and equally strong desires to handle practical matters. There is a tendency to misjudge your capacities in the first half of the day, perhaps leading to taking on too much. There can be exaggeration or misinformation in your work and among friends, or people may expect far too much from you. Making decisions tends to pull up guilty feelings, as you may be thinking in either/or terms when blending and balancing would be a wiser choice. Try not to spend too much time weighing the pros and cons and take a break from overthinking. It’s easier to focus on what’s suitable for you as the day progresses.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, a Sun-Jupiter quincunx can pull you in different directions, dear Sagittarius. You may face the need to make adjustments rather than forge ahead. It’s probably best to take steps to narrow things down, pace yourself, and prioritize if you feel a little overwhelmed. Expectations of others or your goals may be off, and promises made now can be hard to keep later as they may be half-hearted or based solely on momentary feelings. Letting go of these minor irritations will help you enjoy the pleasant energy of the day, which becomes more evident as the day advances and the Moon harmonizes with Saturn. Communicating with friends or enjoying progress on a personal interest can be reinforcing.
CapricornIt can be difficult to go by a schedule or make a solid decision in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn. Part of you prefers to stick with the familiar, and another part wants to branch out. If you stay on the fence, you are likely to feel like you’ve missed out, which leaves adjusting your expectations, finding a nice balance, or simply making a decision and living with it. Whatever you choose, at least you’re not left in an unbearable place of inertia or overthinking. The day advances with decent energy for progress on life path, money, and other practical goals. The trick is finding something productive and taking things step by step.
AquariusThe Sun forms an awkward aspect to Jupiter, influencing the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. Interactions with others may not go very smoothly just for now. You may waver between keeping things light and taking things a little further, and mixed signals can be the result. It’s a time to adjust your expectations if you’ve been overshooting. Enthusiasm can run high but fall suddenly, and it might get you thinking about what you genuinely want. As the day advances, you’re in a good position for self-renewal through activities that feed your spirit or expand your mind. Letting go of minor irritations allows you to enjoy the pleasant social energy of the day.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, it can be difficult to feel truly satisfied, dear Pisces, with an awkward aspect between the Sun and Jupiter dividing your interests. The key is to get over the idea that you need to go hard or not at all. Moderation can be challenging to practice today but will help bring you down to earth, ready to see and grab the opportunities of the day. Focus on freeing yourself of unnecessary mental burdens. If a relationship feels out of sync, it may only need adjustments, particularly with expectations of one another and of the relationship itself. Avoiding big purchases or business decisions may be wise. The day progresses with more balance and steadiness, making it easier to focus and be productive.
