Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe communication planet, Mercury, begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Aries, where it will stay until the 20th. This cycle is especially supportive of flowing communications and movement, and it’s lovely for inspiring enthusiasm and increased faith. It stirs your curiosity and stimulates your desire to learn new things. You have a stronger desire to expand your knowledge. There can be a clearing of the air that frees your mind. Publishing, reaching a broader audience, promotional activities, and new viewpoints and perspectives challenge you most excitingly. You could feel more “heard” and reinforced. While it’s a great time for big ideas that come from thinking in broad terms, it’s not necessarily strong for their practical implementation. Even so, today and tomorrow are solid for doing some disciplined work or design. You could be distinguishing yourself in your work now.
TaurusMercury heads into your solar eighth house for a stay until December 20th, dear Taurus. In the weeks ahead, you’re likely to pick up all sorts of interesting information and cues. You may be reading between the lines more often than not. You’re bound to bring more logic and objectivity to sensitive, intimate, or taboo matters. With the Sun also transiting this area of your solar chart, there’s a strong focus on your inner world and close relationships now. You’re making changes within you that strongly impact how you approach your life. It’s a good time to make sense of some of your habits, tendencies, and gut reactions. You’re forming strong strategies. You are far less interested in small talk and far more curious about intimate, deep, and profound material. Today, you can get very serious about a belief or principle, but try not to let narrow-mindedness in others rain on your parade. If it’s truly not important, let go for your own peace of mind.
GeminiMercury moves into your opposite sign today, dear Gemini, shifting your thoughts to your social or love life until December 20th. You benefit from feedback or pairing up to think through problem areas during this transit. You might attract someone who stimulates you intellectually. Partnerships, negotiations, compromise, and balance are stronger themes in your life now, especially with the Sun transiting this same area of your solar chart. It’s a strong time for discussions with a partner or special friend–decision-making feels better when done with someone else rather than solo. Even if you’re not following their advice, you’re likely to enjoy hearing other points of view before making up your own mind. The Moon spends most of today in your sign, and people notice and acknowledge you more than usual. It’s a good time to work through problems with friends. Teaching can come naturally now.
CancerMercury heads into your work and health sector today, dear Cancer, putting you in an excellent place for paying attention to details and working through problems. Until December 20th, it’s a good time to learn or sharpen skills and talk through work or health problems. You can be doing a lot of organizing, learning, and sorting. Health and nutrition topics can hold more appeal, and you can come across some helpful information in the coming weeks. Use this period to sort out the important details of your everyday life for best results. Watch for the potential downside of this combination–fretting or stressing over less important things and failing to see the bigger picture. It’s a fine time to keep busy! Chores and routine matters can bore you silly today, as you’re craving more freeform moments. Late today, the Moon moves into your sign, and you can come out of your shell.
LeoToday and until December 20th, Mercury transits your solar fifth house, dear Leo. The Sun is already in this area of your solar chart, and now with Mercury here as well, you’ll enjoy a smoother, more natural flow of communication in your life. Your ideas are received well, and others are admiring your intelligence and wit. You’re looking for fun forms of mental stimulation now and may find yourself attracted to (or attracting) people who are compatible with you on a mental or intellectual level. There can be much interest in self-expression, creativity, and hobbies. You’re finding your joy and sharing your gifts and talents with others more often. Today, you might put the puzzle pieces together regarding a health or work matter. Your ideas come back down to earth, and with the right combination of innovation and practicality, you’re raring to go.
VirgoThe communication planet, Mercury, which also happens to be your planetary ruler, heads into your home and family sector today, dear Virgo. It will stick around here until the 20th, bringing on a livelier, more connected home or personal life. You are communicating with more ease and pleasure with loved ones. With the Sun already in this area of your solar chart, attention to your personal life is a pleasant priority! It’s easier to discuss matters in a rational, objective way. It’s also an excellent time for performing some form of a “reset” when it comes to thinking and communicating if these things have run ahead of you. You’re thinking about your long-term security and projects that have the potential to perform for you for years to come. Today, increased clarity can come to your creative world. You might distinguish yourself in a creative field, but you also need to put in the work. Thankfully, self-discipline is improving.
LibraMercury heads into your communications sector today, dear Libra, where it comes alive. Until December 20th, you’re in good shape for expressing yourself, learning, studies, and socializing. While it’s not the best time to concentrate on any one particular subject, you can very successfully diversify. Because Mercury rules your privacy sector, you might express yourself with secret or private matters more readily. It’s a mostly pleasant, busy, and curious period for you. Aim to pay more attention to the small jobs and tasks that keep everything connected and moving smoothly in your life. The Sun is already in this sector of your solar chart, putting a spotlight on making connections and adding more variety to your life. Today, your home or personal life can be rewarding. Discipline is required of you, but it can feel good to fill your responsibilities.
ScorpioMercury moves into your solar second house for a stay until the 20th, dear Scorpio. The Sun’s already in this area of your chart, and with Mercury here as well, it’s a practical and sensible period. This a good time for budgeting, making good purchases, finding deals, and working on projects that will pay off down the road. Financial decisions can be part of the picture. You might be looking for feedback about your value and worth from others. If you do not feel appreciated for all that you do for others, you could be quite verbal about it now! You’re also especially clever with money and resourceful in your endeavors in the coming weeks. This transit clarifies money matters and increases your ability to make informed decisions about money and personal possessions. This is a time when you take special pleasure in building and developing ideas and projects with your eye on the long term. It’s a good time to ask questions and truly listen to the answers today.
SagittariusMercury moves into your sign today, dear Sagittarius, where it will transit until the 20th of the month. Hosting Mercury puts you in a stronger position to express yourself clearly and effectively. It’s also a good time to gain allies. The tendency to live a little too much in your head is always a possibility at this time, but if you can get mental tension under control, it’s a fine time for making decisions and sharpening your mind. You may need to remind yourself to turn your mind “off” from time to time since overthinking things is counter-productive. You are busier than usual, more inclined to attract others through your viewpoint or wit, and you can feel especially motivated to get moving on a pet project or to learn something entirely new. This is an excellent time to use the power of words to further your interests and attract what you need and want into your life. Career opportunities can arise, too. Today is companion-focused with the Moon in your partnership sector most of the day. You’re also in good shape for seeing important patterns in your financial and business affairs.
CapricornMercury heads into your solar twelfth house for a stay until the 20th, dear Capricorn. This transit tends to pull you inward, and it’s a great cycle for tapping into your inner wisdom. You’re assessing your life from a different perspective, seeing different layers to every situation. You are more sensitive in your conversations but also quite receptive psychically. You may be spending a little more time alone, often getting lost in your thoughts, or you could be working in relative solitude. You are less forthcoming and verbal during this period, and many projects, plans, and decisions tend to be in a gestation stage. There can certainly be much talk or thought revolving around the past. Today, the Moon spends much of the day in your work and health sector, and you’ll want to get a leg up on your everyday affairs and routines. Fortunately, you have support for focusing and prioritizing.
AquariusThe planet of communication, Mercury, heads into your solar eleventh house for almost three weeks, dear Aquarius. It’s in this social sector of your chart until December 20th, bringing good energy for interacting with friends and sharing your hopes and ideas with like-minded people. You gravitate toward progressive ideas and causes, or you might share your expertise with others. There can be notable discussions, musings, ideas, and learning experiences sparked through friends, networking, or groups in the weeks ahead. Mercury here can encourage your interest in making connections and awaken your passion for a dream or project. Your mind is more inventive and open, and your happiness goals or social life can be strongly on your mind. Today, the Moon spends much of the day in your playful solar fifth house, and there should be a generous amount of drama in your life.
PiscesToday, Mercury begins its three-week transit of your solar tenth house, dear Pisces. Your communications seem to register more powerfully — people hear you loud and clear with Mercury at the top of your solar chart until December 20th. There can be a communications theme in your job, whether it’s an increase or a new focus. Or, you’re more inclined to mentally focus on your larger goals, life path, career, or ambitions in the weeks ahead. It’s a time when you’re quite goal-oriented with the Sun also in this area of your solar chart. You can be in the position to make life-plan or career decisions, and you could be turned to as an authority on a matter during this cycle. You’re especially inclined to plan ahead. The Moon spends much of the day in your home and family sector today, however, inclining you to seek out familiar people and situations. You might seek ways to restore your spirit through your connections to family or domestic activities. Your frame of mind is serious and practical.
