Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury heads to the top of your solar chart, where it will transit until the 23rd, dear Aries. Later, it will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). This cycle brings more mental activity and involvement with career, reputation, and goal-setting exercises. Communication is more studied or guarded during these periods, which can be necessary since others are more inclined to take you seriously. There is much information to absorb, learn, and take in that will assist you in making choices and furthering your goals. While it makes sense to pay close attention, going too far with this can lead to fretting. Today, the Moon moves into a fun and playful sector of your chart, keeping things light. You seem to need that extra spark right now, even if it temporarily pulls you off the track.
TaurusA positive cycle for sharing ideas, learning new things, and building knowledge begins today, dear Taurus, as Mercury heads into harmony with your sign. It’s an excellent transit for letting go of small problems and enjoying a broader, more optimistic perspective. Mercury will transit your spirit sector until the 23rd. Later, it will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). During these periods, you’re especially inclined to think about your life in terms of the longer view, which can soothe your nerves. You more easily get worked up over differences of opinion from time to time during this cycle. There might also be an inclination to forget, overlook, or ignore some details of daily life or routines. If you keep these things in check, however, it’s a fine time for learning and sharing. Your aspirations and ideals are driving forces in your life, and you might frequently think about ways to enjoy a change of pace and experiences beyond the ordinary and mundane.
GeminiMercury enters your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, where it will transit until the 23rd. Later, it will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). This transit spotlights your intimate life, attachments, mysteries, psychology, investigations, work on the self, and long-term strategies. You’re looking for deeper meanings or the hidden agenda. Mercury brings some objectivity to complicated and deep-rooted emotions and circumstances. Discussions can intensify quickly, yet you can detach yourself from topics enough to keep things rational, logical, and fair. It’s a good time to sort out trouble areas or mediate and negotiate better relations, finances, support, and life strategies. You may be doing more troubleshooting than usual, and you’re very successful at this task. The Moon moves into your communications sector today, increasing your curiosity and desire to reach out.
CancerMercury moves into your opposite sign for a stay until the 23rd, dear Cancer. Later, it will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). During these periods, you often talk things through and make joint decisions. In fact, there can be fantastic opportunities to learn through your interactions with others. The idea is to look at areas of your life from a different perspective. This position could also mean that, at this stage, others have a lot to say or more input in your life. You have a more vital need for intellectual stimulation through others, and you might seek to share your ideas and decision-making processes with someone special. You gravitate toward people who get you thinking or offer a different perspective. Comfort and pleasure are in stronger focus as the day advances, with the Moon’s move into your solar second house. Slowing down is good for you now. You might take the time to think up new ways to protect, improve, or build your resources.
LeoMercury begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Leo, encouraging smarter work habits in the weeks ahead. You’ll be giving a lot more thought to your work, services, health, and routines during this cycle that lasts until the 23rd, and you might come up with improved systems and methods in the process. Later, Mercury will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). It’s an excellent time to hone skills and learn useful things. Do watch for an inclination to fret or worry about matters you don’t always pay much attention to. Otherwise, you’re in great shape for dissecting problems, solving tricky matters, and finding solutions to practical problems. You’ll do well if you put extra effort into organizing your space and seek information that helps you improve your health, habits, and daily routines. The Moon moves into your sign today, where it will spend over two days. With this transit, taking the lead or acting independently comes naturally.
VirgoMercury enters your solar fifth house for a stay until the 23rd, dear Virgo. Later, Mercury will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). With this transit, you can experience a stronger desire to make sense of your feelings. You may analyze your love life, verbalize your affections, or pour more mental energy into games and creative pursuits. This influence sparks up your creative side, particularly on a mental level. The power of your words is evident now, bringing new opportunities into your life, and word of mouth works well for you. Guiding and teaching can figure strongly and rewardingly in the weeks ahead. You can be a little more creative or playful with your words and bolder when it comes to sharing your views. Attractions can be more intellectual during this cycle, or you draw in people through your intelligence and wit. The Moon enters your solar twelfth house of hidden, private matters, and it’s time to recoup your energy. Activities that honor your need to reconnect with your inner spirit are most welcome now.
LibraMercury moves into a reflective area of your chart–your sector of home and family–where it will visit until the 23rd, dear Libra. Later, Mercury will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). With this transit, there can be more frequent discussions and thoughts about family, domestic life, your support system, roots, and the past. Activity increases in your home, whether through more interaction, work, learning, or study. This transit helps you bring more logic and rationale to matters, and it can also open up communications with loved ones. You’ll likely enjoy some revealing and warm conversations in the weeks ahead. It can also be a time to evaluate your inner feelings, values, and connections or assess and negotiate in your domestic life. You have a stronger sense of others’ moods or needs. You seek special moments or patches of rest and a break from overthinking and overdoing during this cycle.
ScorpioWith Mercury’s move into your communications sector today, dear Scorpio, you’re in solid shape for learning, studying, connecting, and communicating. While this transit lasts until the 23rd, later, Mercury will return to this area of your solar chart from January 13th to February 5th. There are likely to be times when you feel too busy, or perhaps a little wired or fidgety, to truly relax. However, if you avoid mental strain or stress, you’ll reap the rewards of this cycle of information-gathering and improved connections. You’re putting out feelers and learning many diverse but valuable things. Your social life can improve, your mind is even sharper than usual, and keeping/getting in touch with others can lead to important opportunities. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart for a couple of days, and you want to feel more in charge of your life. It’s an excellent time to consider or set new goals.
SagittariusMercury moves into your resources sector today, dear Sagittarius, where it will transit until the 23rd. In the weeks ahead, you’ll put some of your ideas and enterprises into action or add the details to plans. It’s also a time to work with your talents and put them to practical use. You’re incredibly skilled at getting to the bottom line–you’re not so interested in the extras, preferring to keep things simple during this cycle. When stressed, there can be some worry or overstimulation related to money, possessions, and resources. Otherwise, it’s a great time to develop patience. You’re in great shape for focusing on priorities, and you gravitate more to concrete facts and certainties than dreams and visions just for now. The Moon heads into your spirit sector for a stay of over two days, and emotional refreshment is in order! There could be a chance to pursue a special interest or enjoy a change of scenery.
CapricornYou might find opportunities to make necessary clarifications as you advance, dear Capricorn. Mercury enters your sign today, and your interest in the world around you–especially communicating with it–increases many times over. While you were (mostly) content to keep your observations to yourself in recent weeks, you’re now craving a little more interaction. Still, this is a time when you make more executive decisions, worrying less about feedback and more about what genuinely works for you. It’s a good time for increased confidence in–and enthusiasm for–various mental projects or pursuits. This can be a power period on a mental level. You’re ready to put the past behind you and have plenty of fresh ideas for the future. You tend to attract what you want through the power of words. While Mercury will continue this transit until the 23rd, it will return later, from January 13th to February 5th. Also today, the Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a stay of over two days, and you’re going deep. You get the desire to turn inward as you examine your motivations or to take a break from the action so that you can observe and strategize.
AquariusMercury heads into your solar twelfth house today, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until the 23rd, and some time for reflection is appropriate. Later, Mercury will return to this area of your chart (from January 13th to February 5th). While this can be a transit of limbo for some issues, it’s a fabulous time for reflection. In truth, ideas are in the developmental stage, and you intuitively sense that you should wait to share them until they–and you–are ready. You often think about the recent past, your feelings, and where you are “at” in your journey. You are more impressionable than usual, but you can often keep your observations to yourself during this cycle. You could be (or should be) doing more contemplative activities, research, and reflection. Discretion may, in fact, benefit you now. You might put a project to rest or finish up a long-term project. The Moon moves into your opposite sign for a stay of a couple of days, challenging you to find a balance in your life. It’s a good time to consider the other side of the coin and weigh the pros and cons. Someone might help you gain perspective.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your work and health sector, dear Pisces, and you’re inclined to tidy, focusing on the minor problems in your life that may have taken over! Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your social sector, launching a cycle that’s excellent for inventive thinking, fresh ideas, and interesting connections. You’re paying particular attention to your dreams, wishes, hopes, and happiness goals during this cycle until the 23rd. Later, Mercury will return to this area of your solar chart–from January 13th to February 5th. Networking activities increase and stand to add something valuable to your life now. Contributing, connecting, and collaborating may bring rewards. You’re keeping abreast of current affairs and happenings with friends or in your networks.
