Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today, you’re most interested in building something that will last, dear Aries. The Moon leaves your sign this morning, serving to steady your emotions as you begin to fill up with more patience. The Moon reaches out to steady Saturn, further bringing you back down to earth. There is less of a need to seek reinforcement from others with this transit, and your sense of practical priorities is strong. The desire to have a little more control of your life is a motivating factor now, and the need for tangible results improves your self-discipline. You might decide to take steps to secure yourself or safeguard your valuables. It’s wise now to focus on ways to stabilize your life so that you can meet upcoming busy days with more confidence.
You’ll feel more get-up-and-go when the Moon enters your sign today, dear Taurus. You’re luminous now. You are acknowledging feelings that you’ve recently pushed to the side. Emotions are sharp and clear. With the Moon’s connection to Saturn, the energies of the day favor channeling emotions in constructive, helpful, and practical ways. You’re able to sort, organize, and prioritize with Saturn’s support now. While you can be focusing on details, it’s also a powerful time for big-picture thinking and making overview plans. You can be feeling on top of your game now, particularly if you manage to resolve a problem that has been dragging you down.
The Moon leaves your social sector early today and settles into your privacy sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini. This is a signal from the cosmos to take things easy–or easier– so that you can catch your breath and process recent events and feelings. You might find the time and energy to put a pesky problem behind you. The Moon’s flowing aspect to Saturn today can help you understand which attitudes and situations that are no longer working for you. You can be just fine on your own or lost in your thoughts today. Part of today may be devoted to something you’re developing or completing, but finding moments to unwind is essential along with these things.
The Moon moves into your solar eleventh house today, dear Cancer, where it will stay for a couple of days. It’s a gently stimulating transit, particularly regarding reaching out to others or latching onto a special heartfelt pursuit. If you’re looking for support, advice, and structure, you’re likely to find these things through the people you connect with today as the Moon and Saturn connect in a harmonious aspect. You’re likely to feel quite capable of meeting your responsibilities right now and happy to do so. Your sense of timing is good right now, and plans may come together satisfyingly.
You have a stronger sense of your duties and others’ expectations today, dear Leo, as the Moon rises to the top of your solar chart, where it will transit for a couple of days. It’s easy for you to take on the role of leader or manager. You’re craving a little more order in your life, and you’re quite willing to put in the effort to make it happen. You’re drawn to anything that brings better function to your daily routine, habits, and work. It’s a little easier than usual to get your chores done, especially if these inspire a stronger feeling of being on top of things. You’re particularly comfortable with your role and responsibilities.
The Moon’s move into your adventure sector today, where it will stay for just over two days, dear Virgo, stimulates a stronger desire to get out and experience life and to learn new things. You might enjoy valuable feedback from others, and if you choose to listen to it, improvements can be made now. While this sector of your chart is associated with freeform, spontaneous activities, the Moon connects with structured Saturn in your creative sector, and your need for order and purpose is highlighted. So, while you’re trying new things, you’re doing so in moderation, and this may very well be the ideal. You are especially resourceful.
The day feels balanced and orderly, dear Libra, and it’s just what you need at the moment. You could tap into the motivation to do something positive and supportive, particularly related to domestic harmony or structure. You need a bit of space now, and people seem to sense this. The desire to boost up your feelings of safety, comfort, and security is more potent than usual — and it’s active on a regular day with Saturn and Pluto long-term guests in your solar fourth house. Today is good for taking measured steps towards a goal rather than attempting to push forward quickly. Indeed, responsibilities seem to be on the increase in your personal life these days, but you feel more equipped than usual to take care of them right now. Letting go of bad habits seems within your reach as well.
You’re drawn to productive activities today, dear Scorpio, and you’re also feeling a little more sociable than usual as the Moon moves into your partnership sector for a couple of days. You’re seeking a little more harmony and balance in your life with this transit, and with the Moon’s aspect to Saturn today, it seems very much within your reach. Having the support of steady, mature Saturn is a blessing. While Saturn seems to work quietly and without fanfare, its gifts are valuable and long-lasting. You might decide to work on a project with someone special or work on a long-term project. Whether it’s through the encouragement of a significant person in your life or if a relationship is motivating you now, it’s a beautiful time to nurture your ambition and get things done.
While the day may be a little quiet, you can be quite happy and productive now, dear Sagittarius. The Moon moves into your work and health sector today, where it will spend the next two days, encouraging you to take care of business. Its connection to Saturn today stimulates a need for a little more order and stability. Quiet or solitary activities suit you just fine, and in fact, tend to bring out your best just for the moment. It’s wise to seek a better balance between supporting or assisting others and asserting your authority. It’s a good time, too, for handling the details that will further your financial, health, and work goals.
The Moon is supporting Saturn in your sign today, dear Capricorn, generating a stronger sense for–and love of–structure, order, and self-discipline. The Moon moves into your sector of joy and self-expression for two days. Saturn is bringing more maturity to your character and organization to your life, and today, your emotions are engaged. Working on longer-term projects that don’t have immediate dividends, whether material or spiritual, makes sense now. This influence quite gently but effectively nurtures your ambitions to improve. It’s a good day for taking small but significant steps towards a goal, and it’s strong for nurturing a pet project or relationship as well.
The Moon moves into your solar fourth house today, dear Aquarius, and connects well with both your planetary rulers. You may be bringing elements of the past, such as wisdom or heritage, to current projects and activities in a positive, supportive manner. There can be a nice focus on attention to your personal needs, family, or home life. You seem to need to get your domestic life running smoothly before taking on the world, or you need the space to get yourself together and functioning well, making a time-out especially essential now. Your intuition serves you well on practical levels, and on some level, this works two ways — you are applying practical intelligence to the world of your emotions with success.
You’re likely to enjoy increased clarity or a pleasing hook on reality that boosts you up today, dear Pisces, with the Moon’s move into your communications sector and its flowing aspect to Saturn. You might decide to bring more organization or structure to your daily affairs or schedule, and it feels good to clear the clutter and your mind at the same time. Structured learning can be more effective than usual. Balancing something out is empowering under this influence. Others may be turning to you for guidance or leadership. Expressing your appreciation for others can be rewarding. Friendships and making connections can be in focus, but you’re also inclined to thrive in self-directed activities.
