Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house of hidden, private matters, dear Aries. It’s a time for recouping your energy. Activities that honor your need to reconnect with your inner spirit are most welcome now. Mercury moves to the top of your solar chart, where it will transit until January 8th. This cycle brings more mental activity and involvement with career, reputation, and goal-setting activities. The Sun will head into the same sector tomorrow, and Mercury here can help you make sense of your ambitions and goals. Communications are a little more studied or guarded during this cycle, which can be necessary since others are more inclined to take you seriously. Feelings can fluctuate about money and possessions later today.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Taurus, and it’s a good time to approach others and enjoy simple, straightforward connections. People are drawn to you quite naturally, although later today, there can be a disconnect or moodiness with Venus forming an awkward angle with Uranus in your sign. Mercury enters your solar ninth house today for a transit that lasts until January 8th. You’re likely to think about ways to enjoy a change of pace. With the Sun entering the same sector tomorrow, you gravitate toward experiences that go beyond the ordinary and mundane. There is a greater hunger for learning, but not of the rote kind–you want to expand your knowledge. This transit stimulates your curiosity or mental restlessness if you’re not feeding your interests.
GeminiMercury enters your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, where it will transit until January 8th, and the Sun will do so tomorrow. These influences spotlight your intimate life, attachments, mysteries, psychology, investigations, work on the self, and long-term strategies in the weeks ahead. You’re looking for deeper meanings or the hidden agenda. Mercury brings some objectivity to complicated and deep-rooted emotions and circumstances. Discussions can intensify quickly, yet you can detach yourself from topics enough to keep things rational, logical, and fair. However, the Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and you’re particularly focused on your goals and ambitions. Later today, you could feel a little caged in, but it’s a temporary feeling. Try to put worries about your past behind you so that you can better enjoy the present.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Cancer, and there can be a stronger need to escape the usual routine. The goal may be to refresh your spirit. Also today, Mercury moves into your opposite sign for a stay until January 8th. During this cycle, you’re more inclined to talk things through and make joint decisions. There can be fantastic opportunities to learn through your interactions with others. The idea is to look at areas of your life from a different perspective. This position could also mean that, at this stage, others have a lot to say or more input in your life. You have a stronger need for intellectual stimulation through others, and you seek out someone to share your ideas and decision-making processes.
LeoMercury enters your solar sixth house today, where it will transit until January 8th, dear Leo. You can become quite caught up in the details of your everyday life in the weeks ahead. You may be dissecting problems, working on solving tricky matters, and finding solutions to practical problems. Do watch for over-thinking and over-analyzing situations. You’ll do well for yourself if you put extra effort into organizing your space. Seek out information that improves your health, habits, and daily routines for best results now. The Sun will head into this same sector tomorrow, and a theme of work, health, habits, and routines is in the spotlight. Later today, new attractions and desires can abound but may not settle in for the long term.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your opposite sign, challenging you to bring your life into balance, dear Virgo. It’s a good time to consider the other side of the coin. Diplomacy is the way to go at this time of the lunar month. Also today, Mercury enters your solar fifth house for a stay until January 8th. In the weeks ahead, you can experience a stronger desire to make sense of your feelings. You may be analyzing your love life, verbalizing your affections, or pouring more mental energy into games and creative pursuits. The Sun will enter this same sector tomorrow, bringing further emphasis to joyful pursuits. Later today, there can be some tension and indecision affecting your mood. You could feel a little off center if schedules change or plans are disrupted. Aim to be flexible.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to tidy, focusing on the smaller problems in your life that may have taken over! Mercury enters your solar fourth house, where it will transit until January 8th. The Sun will do the same tomorrow, bringing further interest in family, domestic life, support systems, your roots, and the past. Conversations and thoughts more often revolve around these things in the weeks ahead. Activity increases in your home, which can include work, learning, or studying. You’re bringing more logic and rationale to your personal life, and this transit can also open up communications with loved ones. Later today, it may be best to take a step back to observe your interactions.
ScorpioMercury enters your solar third house today, staying until January 8th, dear Scorpio. It’s a mentally busy time when you’re inclined to do a lot of connecting, calling, writing, and sharing. The Sun is about to enter this same sector, putting the spotlight on learning and communicating. You’re putting out feelers and learning a lot of diverse but useful things. Your social life can improve, your mind is even sharper than usual, and keeping/getting in touch with others can lead to important opportunities. The Moon is in a fun and playful sector of your chart today, keeping things light. Later today, there could be a disconnect or some restlessness stirred. Try to immerse yourself in things that you love doing rather than depend on things going as planned.
SagittariusThe Moon’s transit of your sector of inner security brings out the homebody in you, dear Sagittarius. Familiar methods, people, and situations appeal most, as you need some downtime. Also today, Mercury enters your solar second house for a stay until January 8th. You’re in great shape for focusing on priorities in the weeks ahead, particularly with the Sun entering the same sector of your solar chart tomorrow. You’re drawn more to concrete facts and certainties than dreams and visions just for now. This simplifies your life on some levels, although you could be missing critical spiritual considerations when making decisions and drawing conclusions. Generally speaking, this is a period for cultivating patience and working on building your resources. Later today, you might crave things, activities, and pleasures that are different or reflect your inner unrest and need for change. Restlessness decreases dramatically once you get in touch with your heart.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Capricorn, increasing your curiosity and desire to reach out. As well, Mercury moves into your sign for a stay until January 8th. The Sun will follow suit tomorrow! You more readily express your ideas and talk about yourself or your plans in the weeks ahead. You communicate your personal experiences more often, and others seem to be listening to your thoughts and opinions. However, you’re also more inclined to make your choices and decisions independently. Later today, avoid behaving erratically in your relationships and instead attempt to get to the root of any unrest stimulated now. It’s best not to make premature or rebellious decisions. People may surprise you or make changes now that can be a little disruptive, but nothing you can’t handle. In fact, there can be interesting detours.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your resources and worth sector, dear Aquarius, sensitizing you to the practical side of your life. However, Mercury heads into your solar twelfth house for a stay until January 8th, and tomorrow, the Sun will enter the same area of your solar chart. While this can be a cycle of limbo for some issues, it’s a strong time for reflection. Sorting through recent experiences can be useful. Ideas and projects can be in the developmental stage, and you intuitively sense that you shouldn’t share them until they–and you–are ready. Later today, there can be some minor feelings of unrest or off timing socially. It makes sense to try to get to the root of any unusual desires that come over you now, as they may only be a symptom of the need for a small change in your relationships or relating patterns.
PiscesEmotional needs are loud and clear today, dear Pisces. If you need to pour your heart and soul into an important project, it’s a good time to do so with the Moon in your sign all day. Mercury enters your solar eleventh house today, where it will transit until January 8th, and tomorrow, the Sun will enter this same area. These events bring more attention to teams, friendships, networking, groups, community, and causes, and in the case of Mercury, particularly on mental levels. It’s an inventive period for ideas, although it’s not always the most practical time. You are particularly interested in enjoying yourself, fulfilling happiness goals, making contact, and reaching out to like-minded people. You’re keeping abreast of current affairs and happenings with friends or in your networks.
