Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt can be challenging to focus on facts and figures today, dear Aries, making it a better time for freeform activities than directed ones. If it’s not necessary to focus, it could be an excellent time to take a break. Conversations can be vague or possibly guilt-ridden later today, and it may be better to avoid looking for a solid answer. Still, you tend to seek more interaction with the Moon’s move into your creativity sector today. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. The Moon’s opposition to Saturn can point to some blocks standing in the way of enjoyment, and these can relate to your responsibilities to others or the demands of your friends or networks.
TaurusYou may feel the need for reassurance today, dear Taurus. You could be feeling a little off and sensitive to a lack of support. Decisions are tough to make, as alternatives leave you feeling between the proverbial rock and a hard place. You may not feel thoroughly understood, particularly when it comes to a friend or a long-term goal or plan. Try not to look outside of yourself for answers today. Instead, give yourself more time to get in touch with your intuition. The Moon moves into your solar fourth house for a couple of days, finding you in need of more comfort, familiarity, and quiet. It’s time to explore your inner world and get in better touch with your requirements for nurture and comfort. You’re also reminded of your commitments today, and influences tend to challenge you to find a better balance between your personal and outer lives, or you can be torn between rest and work.
GeminiThere can be some problems getting your message across today and tomorrow, dear Gemini, but it’s temporary. Take a little more care than usual to make yourself exceptionally clear, or consider waiting to present your case for a better time. Talking about a relationship or relationship problems with people on the outside of it may be costly. Sometimes keeping certain things between the two people involved is a better solution. Avoid taking yourself too seriously right now, especially with a New Moon about to occur. The Moon moves into your communications sector, bringing out the more curious part of your nature. While your ability to concentrate may suffer today, it’s a good time to explore potential interests.
CancerThe Moon moves into your solar second house today, dear Cancer, and you need more consistency in your life. Still, with Mercury forming minor challenging aspects, your mind can wander, and distractions are likely. Avoid shopping for big-ticket items now, as you may not be seeing things clearly. Aim to relax and tame restlessness with healthy, happy activities rather than adding more to your plate. Tomorrow, a New Moon will occur, which can redirect your focus. Money can be a tricky topic in the meantime. You certainly need more time to yourself, and getting to a better balance is essential now.
LeoYou might experience some hesitance and wrestle with self-doubt when it comes to your perceptions today, dear Leo, possibly for good reason. You could find that making a stand on a matter can somehow backfire, and there can be some mental bobbing and weaving. Let your heart catch up with your mind before coming to firm conclusions. Mercury is in minor challenging aspects, and it’s the day before a New Moon in your sign. Even further, the Moon moves into your sign and opposes Saturn. Consider that the minor hurdles that you face can force small changes and refinements that will help you out in the long run. Listen to your feelings and interpret them, but do watch for a tendency to dwell on problem areas.
VirgoThere is somewhat tricky energy with you for relationships today as you can find yourself at cross-purposes with someone, dear Virgo. You might worry about a past poor choice or mistake and take it too seriously. You might also move through the day with a vague sense that you’re missing something important, finding it difficult to commit to any one task wholeheartedly. The trick may be to avoid juggling too many ideas at the same time. While you may be searching for meaning in hidden places, Mercury’s awkward aspect with Neptune suggests that you may not be seeing things clearly, or if you do, you may not have faith in your perceptions. Try not to over-analyze. The right answers come to you when you’re not pushing for them too hard. Consider that tomorrow’s New Moon might change your focus or direction.
LibraYou might come to an exciting idea or conclusion that, on further inspection, may not carry much weight, dear Libra. Consider that today’s energies don’t favor brand new launches or fresh starts, and it makes sense to wind down rather than work yourself up. Social interactions or issues can get in the way of your work and vice versa now. Distractions are plenty, or you are more sensitive to them. Worrying about the opinion of others can be another way to waste time and energy today. You crave more recreation as the Moon moves into your social sector today. Even if it isn’t easy to settle on a special activity, aim to rest your mind.
ScorpioTemporary doubts and some confusion can set in today, dear Scorpio. Watch for procrastination or multi-tasking that takes you away from what is essential. Something communicated could be taken the wrong way. It’s not the most organized of days, so that if you’re in the position to focus or put things into order, you may become a little frustrated. Take a breather if certain areas of your life are not coming together well, if possible. Adjustments in the ways you approach others may be necessary now. Take a second look, and resolve to get over this small hump. Because it’s the day before a New Moon, it makes sense to unwind rather than wind yourself up. Shortly, a fresh start with goals, reputation, or career will take form.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into your spirit sector for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, turning your attention to your need for mental refreshment. Indecision can be a good thing if it keeps you from making choices you don’t fully own, which can be the case today with a Mercury-Neptune aspect in play. You could become excited about what you see or discover later today, but then second-guess whether it was only a fantasy. It’s best not to rely on others’ answers temporarily. The general tendency to be in limbo is with you, but it shouldn’t detract from the positive potential of the day for rest, constructive imagination, and reflection on this day before a New Moon.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to go deeper with arriving at an understanding of yourself and recent events. It’s a time for exploring your feelings instead of dismissing them or tucking them away. Signs point to a greater need for rest, relaxation, and time to think and muse today. Focusing on specific tasks may not be easy as your mind tends to drift very quickly today, however. Needs you’ve neglected deserve extra attention. On this day before a New Moon, it makes sense to reflect and observe rather than push ahead.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your partnership sector for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, turning your attention to areas of your life that have come out of balance. You’re more inclined to seek harmony or company! As much as you’d like clear answers and definitions, you may need to settle for murky temporarily. Perceptions are blurry with a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge, and people may be beating around the bush. Backing off from a problem can help let your intuition click in, leading to a better solution if you are patient enough to wait for it. Tomorrow’s New Moon is likely to help redirect you.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your solar sixth house today, dear Pisces, and you tend to notice the minor problems in your life. This can motivate you to take care of essential matters and iron out differences. However, if you’re feeling a little off, you can be inclined to fret and worry with this transit. Solid answers are not forthcoming today, however, with a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge. As much as you’d like to sort something out logically, another part of you would prefer to let go of problems and consider the bigger picture. This can lead to some frustration unless you find ways to tend to both needs or to come to a compromise. It’s best to focus on doing one thing at a time to prevent feelings of overwhelm leading to procrastination.
