Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, dear Aries, inclining you to seek the familiar. However, on a mental level, you’re far more forward-looking. Today’s Mercury-Uranus aspect stimulates creative, progressive thinking. It’s a time when you want to get out of a thinking rut and embrace new ideas, methods, and approaches. You might gain a better sense of what needs to go or improve with money or business matters, in particular, but this can apply to many other life departments. You can feel renewed as you discard old ways of thinking, and you’d prefer not to complicate things unnecessarily right now. Communicating frankly and with transparency can work well for you, taking you down a new path or refreshing your relationships. You more clearly intuit where you might excel by taking a small risk or making a change. Nevertheless, Venus is freshly retrograde, and it’s best to take things slowly.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your solar third house of communications, dear Taurus. Reinforcing the mental focus is a Mercury-Uranus transit that’s excellent for coming up with exciting ideas. You’re thinking outside the box, particularly in the areas of education, communications, and projects revolving around technology and new-thought topics. News or views can nudge you along in a positive direction. It’s a good time for feeling freer and more spontaneous. With Mercury in your adventure sector these days, you’re more often than not letting your mind wander and wonder. Today, the right energy is available for detaching yourself just enough to enjoy a detox of sorts on a mental level. A mental detour can be most welcome now. Your conversations can spark a nice feeling of optimism and hopefulness.
GeminiYou are forward-looking and might decide to share your feelings with someone you trust today, dear Gemini. You’re in fine shape for exploring the depths of a topic or subject, if you desire. Inspiring conversations can take place with Mercury in harmony with Uranus. An incoming message or piece of news can help you let go of a past matter and move forward in a positive direction. A little bit of detachment can be refreshing–just enough that you’re bringing more objectivity to a usually tricky or emotional topic, and you can break new ground as a result. You might even have the opportunity to rid yourself of a nagging problem or a secret. You may very well move forward as the result of a conversation, mental detour, or thought tangents.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Cancer, bringing added color and animation to your emotional world. A Mercury-Uranus transit today enlivens things further. Realizations, musings, or discussions can lead you to beautiful insights. Today, you’re likely to get a good sense of a situation after an open conversation or personal honesty. Consider ways to unburden yourself in some significant way, as the freer you are, the more likely you’ll welcome positive new energy into your life. There can be a rewarding meeting of the minds, or you might experience a breakthrough with a partner or about a relationship. Better communication may be just the ticket to move forward. Aim to use the open spirit of the Mercury-Uranus transit today to discover ways to let go of burdening attitudes or situations. Networking can lead to beneficial or pleasant discoveries. In fact, your relationships can be a powerful source of bright ideas right now.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Leo, signaling an emotional need for more time to yourself so that you can recharge.

LibraThe Moon in your solar tenth house all day encourages you to tune into priorities, dear Libra. Gentle challenge or pressure to perform can be good for you at this time of the lunar month. Keeping a goal in mind can strengthen your focus. On the other hand, a Mercury-Uranus transit today helps you open up about your personal life, whether through discussions with or about loved ones or because you’re giving matters further thought. It’s a fine day for letting go of petty issues and for focusing instead on more spiritual or emotional needs. There can be inventive solutions to home-related problems and new approaches with family and loved ones.
