Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesGood energy is with you for troubleshooting matters, dear Aries. You could be entertaining new approaches, methods, and ideas that improve your life, starting small and working from there. Emotions tend to settle with the Moon’s transit of your resources sector. As the day advances, tensions with work or minor problems can distract you far too easily, but your attention is divided because your interests lie elsewhere. You’re benefiting from a sharper ability to focus on the details these days, but you may be taking this a little too far right now. Try to tune out some of the overthinking. Look for opportunities to brush up on your skills. There’s value in dedication, but compulsion doesn’t do you any good, so draw the line.
TaurusYou can feel excited and mentally engaged today, dear Taurus. There may even be a communication breakthrough or solved problem. Fun interests or opportunities to enjoy yourself are emerging, and you appreciate more warmth and positivity in your interactions today. With the Moon in your sign all day, everything can feel urgent right now, but if you slow down a little, you might notice that your plans have been moving along at a reasonable pace — it’s you who wants instant results! There can be some pressures you’re dealing with as the day advances. You could have difficulty choosing between a safe and slightly riskier choice. There can be some tension or even suspicion or doubts raised, making it hard to relax with so much on your mind. The focus may skew to problem areas, breaking the flow in thinking or conversing. Reading too much into a situation can temporarily get the best of your mood.
GeminiMercury’s current transit generally boosts conversations and thoughts or ideas on the domestic front, dear Gemini. Today, your ideas are bigger and more ambitious, and you can be excited about making plans or solving problems. Long-range plans can be in focus–you have your future interests in mind. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and you may benefit from some form of emotional retreat or cutting off from demanding or competitive situations. As the day advances, it would be best to watch for a tendency to push yourself too hard since potential pitfalls now lie in succumbing to mental pressure. It can be a real challenge to turn your mind “off” when it’s running ahead of itself! Suspicion is something you are likely to battle within yourself, and it’s better to make bigger decisions after your mind clears. Research and analysis are favored as long as you don’t become so absorbed that you forget what you should be doing.
CancerYou might enjoy dreaming up new ideas for projects today, dear Cancer, and you enjoy much enthusiasm about what you’re learning or communicating. It’s a time to see a way out of a problem or understand a matter more clearly. You’re eager to write, study, speak, or share ideas. With the Moon in your solar eleventh house, your instincts may be to remove yourself from high-pressure situations. Focusing on happiness goals is a tendency. However, as the day advances, you may feel a little guarded or pressured, which can lead to some misunderstandings. It can be challenging to turn your brain off enough to relax later today, but it’s better for you if you do! Overthinking is likely a goose chase, and looking for a hidden agenda can be more effort than it’s worth. Avoid absorbing thick tension around you and sidestep power games or manipulation.
LeoYou can be pleasantly motivated and directed at times today, dear Leo. You might plan or map out some strategies for improving your relationship with money, or you could arrive at fabulous ideas about using your resources more efficiently. The Moon in your professional sector today can bring out strong feelings about your work or reputation. As the day advances, there can be some tension related to work, business, or money interfering with your mood or goals. Watch for overthinking things or taking your sense of duty to extremes, as you may accumulate too much stress. Pushing yourself can take its toll on your outlook. Interactions may quickly escalate with a minor challenging Mercury-Pluto transit in play. It’s all too easy to jump to conclusions.
VirgoYou can be excited to share something of yourself, dear Virgo, whether by talking, writing, or connecting with others. It can be a great time to gain an advantage, learn something valuable, or solve a problem. Positive thinking and planning seems to attract more peace and happiness into your life. Emotional energy is forward-looking and outgoing with the Moon in your solar ninth house all day, reinforcing this them. However, later today, a minor Mercury-Pluto challenge can point to mental tension or pressure. Watch for a suspicious or negative turn of mind. Your mental radar is working hard but perhaps too furiously in spots. You might enter a conversation thinking you have everything under control, but if it doesn’t go a certain way, things can go south quickly with this transit. It may be best to save important conversations and presentations for a more confident, positive time. Pour extra energy into researching information you truly need or that furthers your cause.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and focusing on emotional priorities figures strongly, dear Libra. You’re inclined to go deep in whatever you take on. This is a wonderful period for motivation and dedication to a particular project or pursuit, such as a personal interest. It’s also a time for drawing upon your wisdom and helping others. You might open up about a personal matter with someone you trust. Later today, you could be sensitive to anything that feels like disapproval of your choices. It may not be straightforward to enjoy yourself with certain pressures weighing on your mind. Worries, fears, and concerns can hang around longer than usual, subtly affecting your thoughts and communications. As a result, conversations and interactions can be tricky. Try to avoid setting yourself up for answers that you don’t need to hear right now.
ScorpioWith the Moon in your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, you’re particularly concerned with close relationships, compromise, harmony, and balance. It’s also a good time for organizing your daily affairs and attending to unfinished business. There can be engaging conversations with friends and promising project advances. While you can be excited about your plans, there can be a lot on your mind as the day advances. A friendship matter that frustrates you can weigh heavily on your mind, for example. There can be some tension if someone brings up an issue that leaves you feeling insecure or if you’re left to fill in the blanks. Guard your feelings, but avoid jumping to conclusions. Conversations may go in a direction you hadn’t anticipated. You may be reading a situation or person negatively, which is more about fear or insecurity than reality.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Sagittarius, putting you in the right frame of mind for solving problems. You are more attuned to the imbalances and flaws around you. Ideally, you’re motivated to come up with workable solutions, and fortunately, transits today help you see more of a situation. You’re hungry to learn new things and especially come to conclusions. Later today, it may be tough to relax with your mind working overtime, but you’ll get the chance to unwind soon enough. People can be defensive now, making discussions rather unproductive, and it’s a good time to seek ways to relax, detox, and loosen up.
CapricornEnergy flows well for relationships and creative pursuits today, dear Capricorn. The Moon spends the day in your playful sector, encouraging your more outgoing qualities. People could turn to you for guidance. A relationship can expand as you share your ideas, and great energy is with you for friendship through shared intellectual interests and your unique visions and perspective. Still, a Mercury-Pluto transit coming into play later today points to doubts or pressures that can lead to a racing mind. Watch for overthinking things. There can be quite a bit of unnecessary tension surrounding personal opinions. Try not to take a difference of opinion as a personal slight, but if you do, consider that they mean more to you than what’s on the surface.
AquariusYou’re enthusiastic about special interests these days, dear Aquarius, and you might draw people into your life or inspire people you already know to enjoy the things that motivate you. Today’s energies are good for solving problems–you might open your mind to something you weren’t ready to see in the past. There can be excitement on mental levels today, and energies are good for investigation and research or invigorating communications. The Moon spends today in your home and family sector, stirring the desire for comfort and safety. Just for now, you are not at your most outgoing as you reconnect with your inner purpose. Later today, while you can be very focused on observing and investigating but could be giving off mixed signals. One side of you is playful and casual, and the other part is taking life seriously. Your thinking is sharp but perhaps too much for your own good in spots!
PiscesYour outlook today is positive, and conversations can be especially healthy or helpful in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. Discussions and back-and-forths can help you clarify your feelings and ideas. In fact, your interactions can end up revealing hidden desires. The Moon spends the day in your solar third house, encouraging you to reach out, make connections, and diversify. A Mercury-Pluto minor challenge can lead to mental pressure as the day advances. Mercury, in your partnership sector, improves your ability to reason things out with others, but today’s challenge can point to overthinking things. Talking things through is great for you now, but not if you get too hung up on the details of what’s said. Your mental radar is working at full speed, but you may be reading far too much into a situation than is necessary or healthy. Don’t allow thoughts to drain you emotionally.
