Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today, it’s best to avoid making broad statements, as misunderstandings are all too easy, dear Aries. Aim to take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. Misjudging things is possible, making it best to leave assessments open-ended. As the day advances, being moderate and avoiding going over the top comes more naturally. The Moon in your sign indeed excites your emotions, but you feel good about getting back on track. You’re sensible, but at the same time, you’re not afraid of a little change and innovation, as long as it’s within reasonable limits. Trust your own inner guidance right now. With your ruler, Mars, along with Mercury changing signs tomorrow, it’s a good idea to wait for a change of mind. Locking things down isn’t quite yet advisable. However, making plans and laying the groundwork for the future.
TaurusWhile some elements of your life seem murky early today, dear Taurus, you advance with more clarity or a sense of purpose. With the Moon in the sign behind yours all day, you can find yourself somewhat withdrawn, and it’s good for you at this time of the lunar month. It’s a good time to sport a mature, responsible attitude. You know that if you get some basic structures in place, you free yourself from guilt or old patterns. People are responding positively to your reliability, especially people in positions of authority relative to you. Otherwise, you’re seeking quiet moments and possibly some solitude to rejuvenate yourself emotionally. With Mercury and Mars about to change signs, reserve judgment today since things may look quite different in the coming days.
GeminiEarly today, there can be a lack of clarity, dear Gemini. If people in your life are pressuring you to find a path or define one, you may want to let them know that you need some time and space to discover it for yourself. You may be looking for more meaning and a deeper connection to the world around you, but these things take time. Take note of areas where you’ve lost a bit of inspiration or steam–later, you can work on a plan to make changes. The day quickly becomes more orderly or purposeful as it advances. You can act as a stabilizing force for people in your life right now, and this is especially true of your friends and associates or group associations. Building solid bonds is especially important to you right now. Today, you have the self-discipline to draw upon to make real progress, even if it’s in small ways, towards your goals.
CancerIf you’re considering something new, remind yourself of your usual limits since boundaries are not clear early today, dear Cancer. Keeping conversations light and activities straightforward while avoiding making promises may be helpful. However, energies quickly turn around as the day advances. You get into a practical frame of mind, and taking care of business comes naturally. Restructuring and organizing efforts are appealing. Mercury and Mars are about to change signs, making today better for observing and building than for all-new endeavors.
LeoEarly today, it’s better to avoid going over the top in your communications or bank on something too soon, dear Leo. Exaggerations are easy today, but they can lead to complications down the road. Try not to count on plans that appear to be a little too unrealistic, but do stretch your mind and entertain bigger ideas. The day quickly becomes far more purposeful as the day advances. Relationships can benefit from some kind of structured activity, or you can connect through a better understanding of one another’s ideas and beliefs or a past matter. While you’re sensible and in a good place mentally, Mercury and Mars will change signs tomorrow, making it better to reserve judgment until after these energies shift. You might have a change of mind later.
VirgoIf you’ve been unhappy with confronting the same old issues in close relationships, dear Virgo, this can be a time for changing your approach. Tackling high expectations may be your first step! Early today, the tendency is to promise or overstate your feelings, but this can get you into tricky territory. You might focus on a project or cause that genuinely inspires you–something that comes far more easily as the day advances. While emotions run deep, you benefit from steady energy. Your work or chores can be pleasantly involving. Pursuits that benefit from both innovative and practical thinking can thrive.
LibraIt’s a good idea to separate business and pleasure since lines blur easily early today, dear Libra. Aim to keep things simple as a counter-strategy, as convoluted as things might seem. It’s temporary, but promising something based on current motivation levels is not a good idea since they can be up and down. The day quickly becomes more predictable in pace as it advances. Even though you can feel a bit more dependent on others’ schedules, plans, and needs today, connections feel stable and reliable. Showing you care through your actions is more important than expressing that you do under today’s steadying influences.
ScorpioEarly today, your mind tends to wander away from the here and now, dear Scorpio, and it’s best not to overschedule or communicate impulsively. However, you quickly find a constructive focus today, and you feel both inclined and equipped to take care of business or fix problem areas. It’s in fact a strong time for tidying, organizing, and micromanaging. However, it remains a less than ideal time to make impactful decisions since both Mercury and Mars will change signs tomorrow, bringing on new areas of focus or direction. In the meantime, as you adjust to the shifts, you can get a lot done.
SagittariusWishful thinking can interfere with clarity early today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s probably wise to reserve judgment with promises. There is a tendency to complicate your life when keeping things simple would serve you better. The day advances with more clarity, and you seem ready to take on challenges without much in the way of further thought, but a little strategy can go a long way now. There can be pleasing contact with someone special, and your communications tend to go over well. Your words are helpful. Activities that require focus and discipline can fare well. Tomorrow, energetic Mars will move into your sign, and life may seem to speed up.
CapricornEarly today, it’s not easy to see things clearly, dear Capricorn. Consider that letting your guard down from time to time can help you understand yourself and your needs better. On a regular day, taming expectations is easier for you than most sine you’re an especially practical and sensible person. You prefer not to overshoot. In the first part of today, it’s not so straightforward, but the day advances with more regularity. In fact, you have a stronger need for stability and security right now, and nothing would please you more than to know you can count on others. Interactions are calm, and doing things for others is a way to demonstrate how much you care. Look for actions speaking louder than words today when you’re considering the people in your life.
AquariusIf others are overstepping, you can feel somewhat self-protective early today, dear Aquarius, or you may be questioning someone’s feelings for you. Either way, there can be a general air of confusion or uncertainty. It’s best to be moderate with promises and expectations. Keep your usual limits in mind for best results. The day’s energies quickly even out, however, and recent expressions of patience and maturity seem to pay off. You seem more capable of dealing with the nitty gritty as the day advances, making it a good time to focus on tasks that you’ve put on a shelf or that require a solid, practical, and focused mindset. You might decide to reorganize your personal space, or you could find satisfaction in helping people out, particularly with advice or information.
PiscesCommitting to something should probably wait, dear Pisces. You seem to need to allow things to play out a while longer to give yourself more time to process and understand your needs. However, the day’s energies are good for doing constructive things and help you build, slowly but surely, toward your goals. You may be keeping to yourself a little more than usual, but it’s only because you are in a practical frame of mind. With people, there is a better ability to accept the bad with the good today, and there might even be a settlement of a long-standing problem.
