Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re gaining more determination to meet your goals today, dear Aries, as well as the ambition to exceed them. Today is about tuning out the negative distractions and focusing on what matters. Making improvements is in focus. You’re exceptionally skilled at understanding current limitations and working around them. Motivation is high right now, especially for health and work matters. Fortunately, good energy is with you for feeling confident about your work, chores, duties, or routines. It’s a great time to tackle a puzzle or project, and the chances of gaining powerful new insight into a matter run high. You are communicating with authority and have a very strong sense of your priorities. It’s also a fine time to make plans and develop strategies. Securing or accomplishing something important to you can be your major focus, and it works!
TaurusYou can begin the day not very focused or decided, dear Taurus. However, you come into your own as the day advances. There can be pleasant intensity in some of your interactions. You are patient with people, ideas, and creations, and this respect for the long game brings rewards. You might solve problems and gain new insight into your life, particularly with romance, beliefs, ideas, and creative pursuits. You have the power to gently lead, persuade, and influence now. Romantic relationships may very well grow to a new level through communications and greater understanding. Sharing your plans with someone and perhaps brainstorming to improve them can be rewarding.
GeminiEarly day can leave you feeling divided, dear Gemini, but as the day progresses, your motivation improves, which boosts your ability to focus. Your communications or thoughts hold increased power and passion. You’re not content to only scratch the surface of an issue, preferring to see things all the way through. Fortunately, getting to the bottom of a matter is in favor as your ruler, Mercury, heads toward a trine to Pluto. New strategies and developments in your personal or family life are promising, and conversations (or further thought) can be helpful and revealing. You gravitate toward meaningful projects. Things that will stand the test of time are more appealing. Many good things take time and effort, and you’re happy to contribute. Secrets may emerge in a relieving rather than uncomfortable way. There is more persuasiveness to your personality today, and you’re inclined to think more seriously and deeply. Research may turn up something valuable.
CancerEarly day can find you a bit listless, dear Cancer, and it’s not very easy to focus. As the day advances, however, you get help from Mercury-Pluto trine energy, and it can feel great to concentrate. You might tap into it to get to the bottom of things. Deep subjects and previously hidden information can figure strongly now. It’s possible that you now see things that you weren’t ready to see in the past. You are not necessarily putting all of your cards on the table. In fact, you may very well benefit from some restraint at the moment, but you can make headway with projects and plans, and you might gain insight into a relationship or an important person in your life. It’s a time to hold onto a topic until you’ve gathered more info or devised a good strategy. When it comes to a close relationship or partnership, there can be a bonding moment. Working with someone one-on-one can be of mutual benefit. There is a continued theme of communication and connection in your life, but it’s often quite scattered. Today, you seem to know how to channel this energy.
LeoEarly day, you can feel divided, dear Leo, uncertain which line of thinking to pursue. However, as the day advances, you find it easier to focus and concentrate, and it benefits you greatly to do so. You can be pleasantly busy coming up with interesting ideas or plans. Your priorities are clearer, and you can be particularly motivated to put energy into activities and projects that help secure your future. You’re interested in the long game today. Financial, business, and other practical matters can thrive, as you’re especially sharp and skilled at getting to the heart of a situation. Thinking a little more deeply about these matters can lead to valuable strategies and insight. It may very well be that reducing and pruning can be the best way to grow and improve. It’s also a good time to tighten the details of a plan or project.
VirgoWhile you might start the day feeling choppy and unfocused, dear Virgo, you become increasingly more determined as the day progresses. People can be drawn to your mental intensity. Mercury, in your sign, is heading into harmony with Pluto, and you can be filled with strength and resolve. Mercury is your ruler and is especially strong in your sign. Pluto further supports Mercury, placing you in an advantageous position, particularly with health, creative projects, personal appeal, romance, or children. You might gain information that benefits you greatly, or feedback can be instrumental. A conversation, thought process, or journal entry might help release recent mental tension. You might discover an entertaining passion or interest that is pleasantly absorbing. With the Moon spending the day in your work and health sector, editing or making adjustments comes more naturally now than on most days.
LibraToday’s energies are strong for considering what you might get rid of to help simplify and improve your life going forward, dear Libra. It doesn’t have to be about material things–shedding mental attitudes or habits that no longer serve you can be in focus. New insights or information coming in can be particularly useful. Family members or loved ones can have something valuable or meaningful to share. Giving your support, even if it’s encouraging words or advice, can be rewarding. The best way to truly process and digest recent experiences is through some form of relaxation or retreat, as you may need to step back from situations to see the whole story. You can be in a great position to see what others are overlooking. Conversations or deep thoughts can pull up some exciting revelations. You might also work hard on fixing a problem in your home or a personal challenge, and it’s satisfying to put something behind you.
ScorpioWhile you might begin the day rather uncertain of your next step, dear Scorpio, you’re in great shape for communications as the day advances. Revelations related to friendships and special projects can be powerful today and tomorrow. You’re in an ideal position to persuade, share, and connect. Learning flows well, and you can find your personal projects or interests entirely absorbing. There might be a moment of truth and new insight into a friendship. Connections made now can be very fruitful. Conversations are instructional but also satisfying, if considerably more serious than usual. You may be doing some guiding or teaching, and it’s fulfilling. This is a clean-up period on a mental level. Decision-making improves as you see your prospects and priorities more clearly.
SagittariusWhile scattered energy may continue early today, dear Sagittarius, you’re in great shape for concentrating on your priorities as the day progresses. You might arrive at a valuable conclusion about a career or money matter. You have an intuitive sense of what’s useful, and you can pinpoint what may not be as essential. Meaningful conversations and positive word of mouth can figure strongly. Being productive can satisfy a need now. You’re willing to put something you no longer need behind you today, to your benefit, and can be about letting go of a bad attitude or circumstance. Mercury is at the top of your solar chart, and others hear you loud and clear, and you can use your voice for good.
CapricornA Mercury-Pluto trine enhances your persuasive abilities, dear Capricorn. It offers good energy for reading, listening, conversing, learning, and absorbing valuable information. You may feel inspired by an idea or gain a new understanding of a situation, or learn something that excites you and positively impacts future projects. A new interest or study may be on the horizon. You’re in an excellent position to promote, publish, learn, or present your ideas. You’re also more ambitious and focused on setting goals. You might gain powerful insights into your cravings and desires. This can be a good day for a personal revelation or honest conversation. You can be intrigued by uncharted realms of topics and ideas.
AquariusYou’re more likely to go along with changes today, dear Aquarius, as you see their value. A Mercury-Pluto trine helps you gain insight into intimate or financial affairs. Lifestyle changes might be made from today forward. You’re naturally and instinctively attracting the right information, and connections can be advantageous today. The focus should be on strategy and plans of action rather than quick maneuvers. You might open your eyes to something, now that you’re truly ready to see it. Conversations and connections are likely to work very much in your favor. As you feel more directed and goal-oriented, your concentration improves. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and others are following your lead. You are more in touch than usual with how you feel about recent events.
PiscesWhile there is some indecision or feeling of being unsettled early today, dear Pisces, you’ll find your focus strengthens as the day advances. We’re approaching a powerful trine between Mercury and Pluto, making it an excellent time to enjoy a sense of mission, passion, or purpose. The connections you make or conversations you have can be very revealing and fruitful. The desire to be productive, useful, and helpful is very strong. You might find the motivation to make changes or to pursue a new path that improves your life, which can be as simple as an attitude change in light of recent revelations. Friends can have valuable input, or you may have something useful to share with them. Either way, there can be satisfying exchanges now. Still, the Moon spending the day in the sign behind yours suggests some need to rest, reflect, and restore.
