Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sector of work and routines, bringing your attention to your daily affairs and need to serve, work, and be useful, dear Aries. You can draw some important conclusions and possibly make helpful connections along the way. You’re able to sort through which ideas or projects are worth your time and energy, and which of them may need to wait or fall behind. You have a greater need to feel that your future is relatively secure, and that what you’re working towards will make you happy in the long run. Information can come in that supports your income, financial position, or current business interests. Later today, there can be some competitiveness, edge, or impatience in communications. Timing can be a little off, and you may feel torn between strong needs for both work and play.
TaurusEnergies in the first half of the day support communicating in warm, positive ways, dear Taurus. You might show your affection for someone through your guidance or instruction. Transits bring out your idealism and vision. Communications are pleasing, and they can also come in handy. There can be information about courses and opportunities of benefit to you. Later today, there can be annoying indecision or restlessness as Mercury forms an awkward angle with Mars. What you think you should do can clash with what you want to do, and your interests feel too divided for comfort. It may be best to avoid staying in a state of limbo, but don’t rush decisions, even with pressures to do so.
GeminiYou may crave an escape from the ordinary, the routine, and the mundane on a mental level today, dear Gemini. Still, the Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, and your personal life is a strong draw–some familiarity can feel healing, having restorative powers. This is a day for benefiting from being especially observant. You might make a useful connection with someone through a heart-to-heart or through lending an ear. Later today, there can be some frustration with a choice or decision as your ruler, Mercury, forms an awkward angle with Mars, currently retrograde and transiting your sign. You’ve been seeking out more depth in your projects and with your thoughts and conversations, but Mars in your sign much prefers to jump into action and think later! This discrepancy can weigh on you today.
CancerToday’s Moon transit keeps you mentally engaged, dear Cancer. You’re likely to learn something important by observation. Relationships seem to support your growth, and this feels right. Conversations can be truly useful, pushing you forward with a sense that you’re improving. As the day advances, a Mercury-Mars transit can complicate communications, thoughts, and decision-making. Conversations that should be simple can quickly get tangled or frustrating. The desire to bounce ideas off others may clash with your desire to go your own way or keep to yourself now. A subtle urge to shake things up or a desire for emotional stimulation can be present.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your solar second house, helping ground you, dear Leo. You can feel pleasantly patient with this influence. Today can bring you the information you need at the right time, mainly related to work or health matters. The day has creative potential, and the trick is to center yourself. A Mercury-North Node influence helps connect you with people or information that further your career or health goals, and your inclination to include others and network helps you even more than first meets the eye. This can be a time for gaining increased clarity about a life-path goal, project, or job that feels like growth and improvement. Later today, mental energy can be tricky to channel constructively. The desire to go your own way and do your own thing conflicts with your current tendency to analyze all the details of a plan. Inner conflict is possible now, but this can also lead to tensions with others or miscommunication. Ideally, you find unique ways to combine traditional and progressive methods.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, spotlighting your emotional needs. Emotional engagement is favored, whether it’s with a person or a topic. Aim to tune into the good energy surrounding you for creative ideas and helpful information coming your way. You could make an exciting connection with information or someone that illuminates your way on a creative, educational, or romantic pursuit. Someone may seek your guidance, and you feel great about helping. Later today, there can be some scattering of mental energies. It can be especially challenging to make clear-cut decisions or to center yourself. Aim to find ways to combine responsibility and independence creatively.
LibraToday’s transits are good for making connections with someone who helps you feel comfortable, dear Libra, or has a reassuring effect on you. Alternatively, connections with current friends or acquaintances can improve, particularly through conversations or kind words. You have a greater feeling of well-being as a result. Discussions or kind words can mean the world to you now. Family or the desire to enhance home life can be at the heart of your goals. An awkward angle between Mercury and Mars later today can generate some impatience or carelessness. Someone may challenge your ideas, but it’s best not to take it too personally. Alternatively, the contrast between your need for familiarity and the allure of the new and unexplored is in focus. It may be challenging to decide on any one thing without feeling like you’re missing out somewhere else. Avoid overthinking.
ScorpioThe information coming into your world today can be motivating, dear Scorpio, perhaps for developing a project or a romance. You’re well-positioned to learn something exciting or valuable about a friendship or pet project. It may be best to open the lines of communication. There can be a connection that helps you put your ideas into action, and ideas are easy to come by. Later today, you may need to clear a small hurdle–your impulses seem to clash with what you feel you should do, creating tension. Anxieties may be the root of impatience with others since you may not be clear about what you want to communicate. You can also give off some mixed signals, with part of you feeling quite lighthearted and another part deeply invested. Others’ responses may seem a little superficial or insensitive as a result.
SagittariusThe day promises information that helps you further your work goals, dear Sagittarius. Be sure to reach out to someone. You could make financial connections, find good advice, or enjoy emotional support from a partner or friend. Later today, a practical mindset could clash with another part of you that would prefer to throw some caution to the wind. There can be a rush job or an unexpected change in plans that mix things up a little but can leave you feeling on edge. You can be all wound up without a solid plan unless you resolve to pick a project and enjoy it without worrying about what you may be missing as you do.
CapricornYou might connect with information or someone that helps you get in touch with your creative muse, dear Capricorn. Or there can be information about a child, lover, or creative project that helps inspire you. You’re also well-positioned to help others, whether this is about coming to someone’s aid or simply talking things through and offering personal guidance. You may feel emotionally renewed by better understanding what you want to achieve. An opportunity can emerge for interesting personal discoveries through your interactions. The Moon complements your sign today, helping you manage your emotions well. However, later today, watch for too-quick choices. It may be challenging to harmonize your desires or impulses with your communications. You could be a little restless, with part of you craving emotional excitement but uncertain about how to get it.
AquariusDreams and fantasies can be nice conversation points today, dear Aquarius, and you may learn something valuable through your sharing now. A Mercury-Node connection can inspire you and stimulate some great ideas for making living arrangements or family life more supportive and pleasant. Family projects or discussions can have significance now. Conversations may very well lead to important discoveries about yourself and the people you love today. Later today, an awkward aspect between Mercury and Mars can give you a feeling that you need to rush a decision. However, it may not be the best time to do so. It’s not easy to settle on what to do or whether you have the time and energy to do it! There can be some minor challenges in relationships due to miscommunication or mixed signals. It’s best to seek clarity before committing to something now.
PiscesYou could make a real connection or get over a stumbling block on an emotional level, dear Pisces. Today holds the promise of potentially very useful information through friends, so keep yourself connected. Lean towards activities and people that encourage you to improve, grow, and develop for best results. Later today, there’s a tendency for rushed decisions or communications. This energy may instead be about not readily communicating or interpreting the right intentions behind others’ words. You can feel impatient with a situation and want to put it behind you. However, it’s best not to jump to conclusions or decisions.
