Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesBecause the Moon is Balsamic today, dear Aries, it’s a time for letting go rather than revving up. Pay attention to random feelings and thoughts, as they may help fuel your inspiration down the road. For best results, clear your mind of things that can’t or shouldn’t be changed, and think about ways to truly improve your life. While disagreements over opinions can pop up any day, they can be more irritating than usual later today. Transits can stir up an ongoing tension that is brought to the foreground now. It’s best to avoid making significant changes or decisions, not only due to finicky transits but also because a New Moon will occur tomorrow. You are in no mood to conform to others’ wishes, but you’re inclined to waver between seeming to know precisely what you want and retreating. Give yourself a break today if you can manage it.
TaurusLetting go of tension and frustration can help you more fully enjoy your day, dear Taurus. Personal appeal is strong, particularly when moving away from your routines and embracing new ideas and possibilities. Still, Uranus in your sign heads toward a minor but tense aspect with the Sun later today, and you could be feeling claustrophobic regarding recent commitments. Consider areas of inner unhappiness that this aspect seems to stir today, but avoid sweeping decisions or actions for now. The day is better suited for making minor adjustments. If someone’s making you feel confined, it may be a sign that you’re giving up too much for the sake of peace and at the expense of your inner happiness. With a New Moon occurring tomorrow, it’s a good idea to wind down, reflect, and contemplate.
GeminiIt’s the day before a New Moon, dear Gemini, and that means you’re better off winding down. You can feel up and down: one minute confident, the next minute unsure, but none of these ups and downs will likely deter you in serious ways. Today, slow your approach just enough to see where you might be missing something important. Your defenses may not be up to par, leaving you somewhat vulnerable to others’ judgments or comments. Be gentle with yourself. Take in now, and take action when it feels right. Consider ways to improve, enhance, and enjoy current relationships. Transits later today can keep you guessing, and it may be better to focus on what needs changing rather than who needs to change! The former approach is more constructive since it encourages self-awareness. However, today’s Mercury-Venus transit aids truly supportive and useful communications and exchanges.
CancerThe day’s energies tend to be a bit up and down, dear Cancer, but on this day before a New Moon, it’s better to wind yourself down. Still, you might envision goals related to your daily routines and health, since tomorrow’s New Moon presents fresh-start energy along these lines. Lay low, reflect, revise, and dream today for the best results. As long as you don’t feel stuck there, you can do some looking to the past that benefits you, or you might decide to take care of some loose ends. If you’ve left some things undone, you could feel a little stressed about them now, but it’s better to pace yourself and avoid overdoing. There can be some frustrations with work or routines later today, especially if you feel that you can’t quite get over a bad habit or can’t seem to move past an old frustration. You might have a hard time prioritizing or concentrating with distractions and perhaps unreliability to manage on a social level. Still, there are some bright spots today, and some of your relations can be spontaneous, freeing, and positive with friends or a partner.
LeoBecause decisions don’t come easily today, dear Leo, you may need to let go temporarily if thinking becomes counterproductive. The day has some very bright spots, however. There can be progress and goodwill in work environments. New insights or simply a fresh attitude can make life easier regarding your routines and obligations. Later today can bring some surprises, primarily to do with work or commitments, but try not to fret about these. With a Sun-Uranus aspect coming into play, it’s better to resolve to make changes and adjustments without forcing them. It may be best to think about what to change rather than immediately jump into action. With a New Moon occurring tomorrow, a redirection is likely, so take heed now. Trying to push the pace is more likely to work against you today.
VirgoThere can be creative exchanges and interesting information surfacing today, dear Virgo. Your audience can be opening up, or your experiences are broader, and it feels great. People are enjoying your perspective and supporting your ideas. With a Sun-Uranus aspect coming into play later today and a New Moon tomorrow, letting go a little may be better for you than trying to push ahead. It can feel as if things are moving more slowly or sporadically than usual, and it’s better to focus on what needs to be done rather than worry about the pace. It’s a good time to consider attitudes that no longer serve you well. You might think about putting projects to rest or to the side if they can wait and if they interfere with getting the important rest and regeneration you need in the coming days. Reconnecting with your need for familiarity, comfort, and security is essential now.
LibraWith the Moon heading into your communications sector today, dear Libra, you may seek extra mental stimulation or variety. A Mercury-Venus aspect boosts your conversations and thinking patterns. If you’ve taken on too much, however, you’ll likely feel the tension today with the Sun and Uranus at odds but not quite confronting one another. Part of you wants to keep things light, while another part would prefer to go all in. The Sun is encouraging you to pour extra energy into your studies or personal interests, while Uranus would prefer you dig a little deeper into a more satisfying project or pursuit. This can keep you sitting on the fence. Consider that clarity will come soon enough. On this day before a New Moon, it’s better to wind down and relax than to wind yourself up. Don’t let this finicky aspect convince you that you must worry or stress over a matter. Instead, discontent or restlessness can be a sign that you need to make changes in the future. New interests and directions are on the horizon.
ScorpioWatch for a tendency to focus too much on the things that you haven’t finished today, dear Scorpio, as this can lead to a sense that you’re behind. Instead, aim to concentrate on what you need to do and approach these things one step at a time. Otherwise, you may end up doing very little! Do your best to slow down and pace yourself, and avoid overthinking for best results today. Fortunately, there can be a nice buzz surrounding your communications, personal interests, or projects that keep you looking forward. You can be sensitive to feelings of being stunted in terms of growth and progress later today, as the Sun and Uranus head into aspect. Resolution to these ongoing challenges is unlikely to come now, but if you can let go of some of the frustrations, you can find much to enjoy today. Talking things through is helpful, and you’ll find others quite supportive. Avoid all-new endeavors on this day before a New Moon. It’s a natural end of a cycle in which new projects are best set aside in preparation for new beginnings to come.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your sign today, amplifying your feelings and emotional needs, dear Sagittarius. As the day advances, a Sun-Uranus transit comes into play, and it can give you a sense that you have unfinished business, which can lead to unnecessary stress. In truth, minor adjustments are better than sweeping changes on this day before a New Moon in your sign. Do listen to your inner stirrings that call for a need for change, particularly surrounding work, health, and habits, but avoid succumbing to the idea that you need to make changes immediately. If you feel tired or unable to get going today, you may need a bit of a break from routine or some extra rest. You might aim to cut out distractions as much as possible. It’s better to wind down and take in, reflect, and relax.
CapricornWhile there can be a somewhat jagged or hectic pace later today, dear Capricorn, you’re in a good position to muse, reflect, and converse. In fact, others may especially enjoy your viewpoint and even hang on your words today. The Moon heads into your privacy sector, and it’s a natural time to let go, wind down, and process. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, reinforcing this theme. Be sure to take time out for emotional recharging! Today pulls you into a quieter emotional place, but transits make it tricky to unwind smoothly. Temporarily, it can be tough to honestly broach taboo or complicated topics today without ending up feeling awkward or out of the loop. Even if you think you should confront someone about a matter that’s been bothering you, something may prevent you from doing so, but a window might eventually open. Take your time later today.
AquariusToday’s exchanges and musings can be pleasant and helpful, dear Aquarius. You’re making sense of recent feelings and reactions, and it feels good to sort things out. With the Sun and Uranus heading into an awkward angle later today, be on the watch for unnecessary worrying. Rushing through things could lead to poor decisions and results, so take the time to think before making changes now. Or, a minor conflict may arise between the need to attend to family or personal matters and the desire to keep other connections and relationships alive. We’re heading toward a New Moon, and what’s happening around the time of this lunation helps pave the way for personal changes and new beginnings. Today, before this New Moon, think and process rather than push yourself ahead with all-new endeavors.
PiscesThe Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Pisces, and it draws your attention to your priorities, accomplishments, and goals. Tomorrow, it will join with the Sun, forming a New Moon, and today is best for taking in rather than pushing ahead. Fortunately, a Mercury-Venus aspect helps you sort out your feelings and affections, and it’s a pleasant process. It would be a good idea to be extra vigilant with your words later today as the Sun in a public area of your chart forms an awkward angle to Uranus in your communications sector. You may be stirring up a bit of controversy otherwise. This transit can make you feel you must rush to finish a related matter or to push out something before it’s ready. Try not to succumb to this kind of pressure.
