Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMinor clashes with Jupiter in your sign can point to some restlessness in the first half of the day, dear Aries. They can pit work and personal needs or pleasure against one another. While your mind is gearing towards work and duty, another part of you is looking for ways to free yourself from details and problems. You can be indulgent, feeling more like relaxing than working. Feeling good might interfere with your judgment on a work or health matter, so take things slowly. You could also find yourself in the uncomfortable position of being “on the fence” if you have trouble deciding between two equally viable choices. Look for areas where you may be overdoing things due to restlessness. You take more pride in your performance as the day advances. It becomes easier to identify and focus on your priorities.
TaurusThere can be too much information or mental stimulation that leads to tension in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. Avoid talking too soon or too much about a plan for best results. The timing may be just a little off. News coming your way may not be entirely accurate, or it could be misunderstood. Instead, there can be a feeling of too much information. The day advances with more smoothness. Harmony between Uranus in your sign and the Moon gives you a nice jolt of psychic energy. You thrive if given the room to explore or change your mind.
GeminiYou could find yourself so focused on the details of a plan that you miss what’s important in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. Transits are good for stretching your mind but not great for your nerves or patience! Otherwise, the day advances with good energy for enjoying a sense of mission or purpose. Your ambitions are building. The Moon spends the day in your work sector, and you’re ready and willing to roll up your sleeves and take care of business.
CancerThinking or conversations can seem unproductive in the first half of the day, dear Cancer, with minor challenging aspects involving Jupiter. While there’s a strong potential to stretch your mind, these influences can also serve to frustrate you. Life feels slightly lopsided if you’re overthinking things. Otherwise, today’s energies suggest you might discover satisfying ways to bring more balance to a relationship. Aim to lighten your load rather than take on more. It’s a relationship-oriented day for you, and you tend to ease off a little with personal agendas and plans.
LeoTransits in the first half of the day can lead to some indecision, dear Leo. Your short-term thinking may not mesh well with long-term goals. Something could leave you feeling stumped, but it’s temporary. You may be presented with too many options or choices. Restlessness is undoubtedly a factor in the astrology of the day. Aim to be patient rather than rushing into decisions. Consider, too, that it’s all too easy to misjudge energy and capabilities. Otherwise, the day holds promise for feeling empowered by getting a better handle on your daily routines, chores, work, or health, especially as it advances. You’re likely to feel particularly motivated to improve your habits.
VirgoThere could be some feeling of strain in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, as it can be challenging to arrive at a solid decision. Consider that indecision might be a blessing in disguise–you may not have all the information you need. Watch for the urge to take on a new challenge or project that eventually becomes a burden, or you might find your motivation and interest fizzle over time. Even well-meaning promises made now may not keep, so try not to invest yourself in promises made to you, and think twice about making commitments, just for now. Aim to replenish rather than push yourself and build your confidence in an unrushed, natural way. As the day advances, it’s easier to enjoy yourself. A hobby or a romance can have a powerful effect on you, and dedication to something (or someone) you love motivates and drives you.
LibraThere can be a slight dilemma or a feeling of being out of balance in the first half of the day, dear Libra, with minor challenging aspects. Watch that impatience doesn’t get the best of you. A good strategy might be to tame expectations so that you can base a good mood on reality rather than an unattainable fantasy. You can take a particular interest in your inner world today, and you’re likely to derive quite a bit of satisfaction from efforts to improve family and home life as the day advances. The Moon in your home sector all day suggests a special need for some nesting or cocooning.
ScorpioIn the first half of today, you may not find it easy to choose or decide, dear Scorpio, or something you missed in previous days resurfaces for attention. It’s about tying up loose ends and making essential adjustments. If you’ve overdone attention to work or chores, you may feel it affecting your personal time more intensely now and look for a solution to the imbalance. Still, you can get the chance to gain just enough perspective on a situation to see the lesson, especially as the day advances. As you adapt quickly to minor changes, you put yourself in great spirits and in a good position to make connections. You tend to multi-task with the Moon in your solar third house. You’re especially curious, although perhaps a little distractable.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, getting much of anything off the ground may not be easy, dear Sagittarius, but it’s temporary. While you’re rarely short of ideas regarding long-term plans these days, filtering them is not as straightforward today. It can be difficult to know where to begin, let alone put all of them into action. Take steps to narrow things down, pace yourself, and prioritize. As the day advances, it’s easier to focus and let go of overthinking. Feeling on top of your practical affairs makes you feel more balanced and confident.
CapricornYou could be feeling somewhat uncertain or undecided in spots early today, dear Capricorn. Allow your thoughts to wander, but take more care when making decisions about practical matters, as you might find the details boring or temporarily hard to see. Plans may not get off the ground just for now. While, for the most part, you’re enthusiastic, your mood is subject to some ups and downs, and judgment may be a little off. You’ll likely feel more capable and in charge as the day advances. The Moon spends all day in your sign, and you’re drawing attention.
AquariusInteractions with others may not go smoothly in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, or there is the need to be discreet with what’s communicated. You might wrestle with indecision or a sense that there’s something off. It’s a time to adjust your expectations if you’ve been overshooting. Further, the Moon in your privacy sector all day points to the need to dial things down. You may not be especially forthcoming on an emotional level today, but this is mainly because you need extra time to understand how you feel about a matter. Aim to process and digest.
PiscesCommunications can suffer a little from off timing with minor challenging aspects in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. There might be disagreements about values or money matters in the mix, or you may get stuck on a fact that’s out of place. Try not to promote an idea that you may later regret putting out there, such as a commitment or promise. It may be best to keep things open, free, and temporarily avoid big purchases. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, encouraging you to take your mind off problems–a mission that becomes far easier as the day advances.
