Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could temporarily lose some motivation today, dear Aries, or you could feel doubt as you reassess specific paths or projects. Demotivation can have to do with your worldview, and you may need some refueling in the inspiration department. It might help to focus on letting go of negative feelings to make room for more joy in your life. With the Sun in your solar ninth house, you’re focusing on the bigger picture, but its square to Neptune today points to a tendency to feel a little held back by some untied issues. Uncertainty is part of this, and while it’s uncomfortable, the sooner you either take care of it or learn to live with it, the better. Misjudging things is more likely with today’s transits, so it’s best to leave assessments open-ended.
TaurusYou might struggle with divided attention and some uncertainty today, dear Taurus. There are better times to lock something down. Ambiguities are temporary and, in some ways, useful for helping you pace yourself. However, it’s best to avoid making impulsive moves based on your current mood or perceptions if they’re going off course. A desire to make a deeper connection to someone can cloud your vision for the time being, and wishful thinking skews your perceptions. Confusing boundaries in relationships or balance and power issues in partnerships can hang over you temporarily. You may need to clear the path of sketchy allegiances before getting to a better place. Complicated feelings are to be expected, but soon, you can become quite comfortable with the mystery.
GeminiToday’s transits caution that it’s best to reserve judgment, dear Gemini, but it’s a good time to take note of areas where you’ve lost a bit of inspiration or steam. Consider that some things may need more time to unfold, and defining them is not only a lesson in futility now, but it also may be optional. It’s all too easy to have a veil over your eyes in some areas right now. People in your life may expect you to know where you’re headed, but you need more time to discover this for yourself. Enjoy creative activities and avoid scheduling tasks that require serious focus or concentration today for the best results. It’s better to observe and intuit rather than push your plans forward or make significant commitments. Allowing your direction to come more intuitively requires patience but is well worth the effort.
CancerWith today’s transits, it’s better to approach things in a relaxed, creative way, where appropriate, dear Cancer, keeping in mind that things may not be clear-cut. You may feel out of wind, or motivation levels come up lacking temporarily. What inspired you in the past may not cut it or need some adjustments. Instead, you might seek a different source of inspiration. A lack of focus now can point to a need for a break or personal refreshment. You may be hedging a little. Try to release the pressure to fill specific goals quickly. If you’re considering something new, remind yourself of your usual limits since boundaries are unclear.
LeoWhile this can be a creative and dreamy day on the one hand, dear Leo, on the other, watch that your mood isn’t too dependent on the reactions of others or on circumstances going (or not going) your way. Today’s transits can have you questioning your current sources of inspiration or your allegiances. Keeping boundaries clear or knowing where you stand can be challenging. It’s important to give things a little more time. With a bit of time, you can feel fine with a bit of mystery, ambiguity, or complicated feelings. Getting to that point can take adjustment today. It’s better to avoid fast conclusions or commitments. Take some space from things, as you may very well need a little more creative room or inspiration before you push forward. Some self-doubt, or doubt about recent undertakings, is natural right now and may help steer you in a better direction.
VirgoThe Moon heads into your sign, bringing color to your emotions, dear Virgo. Still, today’s transits tend to blur boundaries. There can be evasiveness in a relationship, or you may be dealing with dashed hopes or deflation if a situation (or someone) isn’t pulling through for you as you’d hoped. While it’s temporary, it makes sense to pay these feelings a little attention since they can show you areas of your life requiring some refreshment. Try not to self-soothe with lies; instead, aim to give yourself and situations a bit of space. At the same time, avoid commitments or hard conclusions until you’re in a clearer frame of mind. Something can trigger buried feelings, and while it can be frustrating, treating it as a chance to rid yourself of old resentments may be best. Tackling high expectations may be your first step. You might focus on a project or cause that genuinely inspires you.
LibraToday’s transits can introduce some feelings of doubt, dear Libra, and they can slow you down. Just for now, it’s hard to make sense of the signals you’re receiving. You may be in a better place if you entertain daydreams and avoid expecting everything to run as scheduled. It’s a good idea to separate business and pleasure since lines blur easily today. Aim to keep things simple as a counter-strategy, as convoluted as things seem. Making promises based on current motivation levels is not a good idea since they can be up and down. Look for ways to strengthen weaker areas of your life that may be holding you back from shining, particularly with routines that have become slack. The Moon’s move into your privacy sector is another reason to lay low, rest, and reflect rather than push ahead without a plan.
ScorpioToday’s transits tend to spotlight areas of your life where you need either more reality or inspiration, dear Scorpio. With a solution feeling further out of reach than usual, problems can weigh on you temporarily. You may need some time to get to a clearer headspace. There can be temptations to jump into a new purchase or experience without considering the consequences, and it’s best to keep these tendencies at bay. If you’re experiencing a lull in motivation, it’s probably temporary, and it could be a sign you need a break or another form of refreshment. Avoid important conversations or signing on the dotted line until the fog lifts. It’s best not to overschedule or communicate impulsively.
SagittariusToday’s transits remind you to slow down and consider your unmet needs before pushing forward, dear Sagittarius. Feeling deflated temporarily can seem a nuisance now, but it could also give you pause to rethink certain plans or goals in creative ways. Wishful thinking can interfere with clarity, making it wise to reserve judgment if promises are made or things appear to be moving in a different direction. Still, it can be difficult to fully back a decision, as there is a sense that something is exaggerated or magnified, good or bad. There is a tendency to complicate your life when keeping things simple would serve you better.
CapricornYou prefer to keep things grounded and realistic, generally speaking, dear Capricorn, but today’s Sun-Neptune transit can blur the boundaries. It’s a better day for free-form and behind-the-scenes activities, but it’s hard to lock things down. Because perceptions are skewed, it may be better this way! There can be uncertainty hanging around you, and leaving things open or undecided may be necessary. There can be disruptions to the regular flow, but the detours you take could lead to new ideas and perhaps some inspiration. If motivation levels are low or you have trouble focusing, consider ways to fill your needs for more imagination, romance, or spirituality. 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 because you’re practical and don’t like to overshoot. Today, however, is tricky.
AquariusToday’s transits could play with your expectations and motivation levels, dear Aquarius, but it’s temporary and may even lead to a new source of inspiration. In the meantime, it’s best to avoid making any commitments that you might later regret, and instead, give yourself or a matter some time and space. If others are overstepping, you can begin feeling quite self-protective, or you may question someone’s feelings for you. Either way, there is a general air of confusion, and the atmosphere is ripe for misunderstandings. Energy and confidence tend to lift very high and then dip, much like a sugar high. As such, be moderate with promises, or avoid them altogether. Remember your limits, and take things more slowly now so that you can tune into your intuition.
PiscesMotivation levels are subject to ups and downs with today’s transits, dear Pisces. You may be searching for some inspiration, which can keep you in a restless state temporarily. While there can be a feeling of change and possibly excitement, there can be a lot of confusion to go along with it. The temptation to agree with others who see you unclearly is strong but could lead to misrepresentation or problems later. Aim to manage your expectations and take it as a sign that you may need to better align your dreams with your plans. Committing to something should wait. It would help if you allowed things to play out a while longer to give yourself more time to process and understand your needs.
