Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends a good chunk of the day in your intimacy sector, dear Aries, meeting up with Venus and boosting your comfort with your feelings. You are quite sensitive to the people and happenings around you but in a mindful, confident way. Later today, the Moon heads into your spirit sector, inspiring the desire for more participation. Expanding your mind can be a strong need now and in the coming days. Even so, we’re also heading to a Mercury-Neptune square, and there can be some disarray or confusion. It’s hard to see things clearly through the strength of your emotions or wishes. There can be resistance to following directions or instructions, which can compound the problem. If you’ve been bored with what you’re learning or doing, you might resolve to make more room for creativity in your life. Small efforts to chip away at a problem that seems to loom large are better than none.
TaurusYou can feel good about sharing your experiences with someone today, dear Taurus, with the Moon and Venus meeting in your partnership sector. Obstacles all but disappear with love, compassion, and cooperation in the mix, even temporarily. Someone can help you get in better touch with your feelings and ideas. You prefer not to live your life on the surface with the Moon’s move, later today, into your intimacy sector. Still, as the day advances, you may feel that your mind is playing tricks on you, or there is a frustrating lack of clarity, in general. Mercury, the fact-finder, is about to clash with Neptune, which prefers a bit of mystery, and you may have to compromise to gain peace of mind. The likelihood of misunderstandings on social or romantic levels is high, and wishful thinking could confuse your idea of others or their view of you. If a situation calls for mental focus, then be sure you double-check your reasoning. Otherwise, consider ways to revitalize work or projects that have become dull.
GeminiMixing work or chores with pleasure is not always successful, dear Gemini, but it may very well be today! You may feel the need for some pampering or recreation, but you want to be productive as well. Smooth and flowing daily routines will ultimately help you achieve your goals, making it worthwhile today to put some energy into getting them into shape. The Moon heads into your partnership sector later today, bringing your feelings for others to life. Still, as the day advances, there can be some foggy thinking as perceptions are strongly colored by what you want to see or are afraid to see. Either way, it’s not easy to see things in a realistic light just for the time being. Indulging in fantasy can be quite therapeutic, but the trick will be to do so in the right situations. The bigger decisions are best not approached based only on what you see today. Others may not know the whole story or may not be revealing it! It’s too easy to become distracted, which can signal the need for a change of pace or mental refreshment.
CancerCreating something and sharing it with others can be satisfying with the Moon spending much of the day in your sector of joy and creativity, dear Cancer. You’re in touch with your “inner child,” and your personal appeal runs high. You’ll probably accomplish more if you focus on creative and otherwise engaging tasks or follow your heart in some manner. The pace picks up surrounding work or daily routines later today, or it may be that you’re more invested in these things with the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house. The urge to sort out little problems, iron out flaws, and eliminate waste or excess runs high. Even so, situations or tasks that require crystal-clear thinking may not fare well with an approaching Mercury-Neptune square. There’s a tendency to gloss over facts, and straight answers from others don’t seem forthcoming. Regular routines may seem dull, particularly if your mind is going back and forth between fantasy and facts. Taking a break so that you can refresh your mind makes sense if it’s possible.
LeoThe Moon spends much of the day in your solar fourth house, dear Leo, moving onto your sector of fun, creativity, and pleasure later today. If you need some time to center yourself and get your bearings, today can deliver. A pleasant time for family matters or your personal life is likely. The day’s energies are good for nesting or processing. Even so, as the day advances, thinking can drain rather than energize you at times today with Mercury heading toward a square to Neptune. Confusing situations can emerge, particularly when it comes to personal boundaries, others’ feelings, and financial matters. It’s not the ideal energy for setting the record straight. Information is missing or hidden, and your imagination can skew your perceptions of a situation. Resolving to live in the moment and take care of business at a later date makes the most sense now. You may be better off leaving some things up in the air or open to interpretation.
VirgoYou might thoroughly enjoy learning, sharing, and connecting today, dear Virgo, with the Moon spending much of the day in your communications sector and meeting Venus there. Light conversation or activity can give you a break from heavy thinking, or it can lead to bigger and better things. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector, where it will stay for a couple of days, encouraging your need to retreat, relax, and reset. Even so, Mercury heads toward a square to Neptune, and there can be chaotic elements to manage or possibly some confusion related to a close relationship. Distractions can lead to less-than-ideal decisions, or misunderstandings can figure strongly. While you may want to clarify a matter or express your ideas, someone may not be genuinely getting what you’re saying, or they seem uninterested. Alternatively, you may not be feeling up to thinking hard or deeply about issues, and it makes sense to aim for flexibility with your schedules and to enjoy imaginative activities.
LibraToday’s Moon transits remind you of the power of the present and living in the moment, dear Libra. It’s a good day for enjoying earthy activities. You might discover ways to protect, improve, or build your resources. Later today, the Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, stimulating your need to reach out, connect, learn, and share. A Mercury-Neptune transit points to some feeling of disorder or disorganization. Today is good for intuition but challenging for exact or precise work. It may be best to reserve judgment. It may be time for a break or some form of mental refreshment. You might resolve to seek out healthy escapes from dull tasks and routines.
ScorpioThe Moon joins with Venus in your sign today, dear Scorpio, and you’re inclined to enjoy some self-nurture or a bit of pampering. Favorable energy is with you for self-expression and a positive self-image. You’re not necessarily more emotional than usual, but you’re more in touch with what you’re feeling. As the day advances, a Mercury-Neptune aspect comes into play, leading to possible misjudgments, whether of money, time, or energy. It’s hard to be objective just for the time being. Creative activities may energize you, but real-life drama can be draining now. It’s not the best time to sign on the dotted line or to make large purchases. People could be misconstruing not only what’s said, but what might be implied. The need for some mental refreshment becomes clear.
SagittariusWith the Moon in your privacy sector much of the day, dear Sagittarius, you’re likely to crave extra time to yourself. You might seek a healthy escape from the usual fare, and emotional refreshment is easier to find than usual. Later today, however, the Moon enters your sign, and previously unacknowledged feelings can rush to the surface. With this move, you’re more likely to want to be involved and feel connected. We’re also approaching a transit that makes seeing things clearly a real challenge. It’s not easy to get a point across or to find concrete answers. There can be some uncertainty or mental distraction now. Others may not be clear with (or about) you, or they might blow what you say out of proportion as Mercury in your sign conflicts with Neptune. If you can let go of overthinking or seeking out definitions and pinpoint accuracy, this can be a good time for creative thinking and writing. Miscalculations are likely today, but going off the mark may end up a useful exercise if you take it as a learning experience.
CapricornToday’s energies are good for sharing ideas or enjoying a network and friends, dear Capricorn, with the Moon and Venus aligning in your social sector. More than usual, you’re seeking satisfaction and comfort from your social life or happiness goals. You might attract some goodwill your way. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, however, signaling a time for quieter activities and perhaps some personal space or privacy. While there can be lower energy levels on an emotional plane for a couple of days, it’s also a good time to review or process recent events. However, a Mercury-Neptune square is coming into play, and it’s best to avoid doing things you usually wouldn’t do, particularly if they involve deception or taking significant shortcuts. Actively imaginative days can be helpful, but there are times when your imagination doesn’t serve you well. It’s a good time to open your mind to new possibilities, as long as you keep in mind that there’s a strong tendency to mix up fantasy and reality.
AquariusThe Moon and Venus meet at the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, and you might attract some positive attention. You might enjoy the rewards of recent accomplishments or consider and set new goals, enjoying the process. The support of others motivates you to do your best. Later today, the Moon heads into your social sector, and for a couple of days, you’re more inclined to reach out and connect. With Mercury heading into a square aspect with Neptune, however, you may need to change your thinking on a matter or alter your expectations. It’s best to keep in mind that perceptions may be temporarily wavering. There can be a spaced-out quality to later-day, making it best to reserve judgment for a time when you feel clear-headed.
PiscesYou can very much enjoy pursuing a new topic or train of thought today, dear Pisces. Grab opportunities to lighten up and release stress. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, which can pull up your need to pay attention to the rules, your duties, or goals. Mercury is heading into a clashing relationship with Neptune, and distractions or uncertainties can lead to a few hassles. It becomes imperative to fact-check as gossip and misinformation can be a problem. Your imagination may not serve you well today, as it can play to your insecurities. You may be expecting others to understand you even without stating your needs clearly, or your fantasies interfere with achieving your goals. The detours you make can lead to fantastic new ideas or perhaps to some resolutions to make important changes. However, it may be best to wait and see.
