Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
A Full Moon brings emotions to the surface and often illuminates things that have been hiding from our view, dear Aries, or feelings we haven’t yet acknowledged, and today’s Full Moon affects your family and career life. The need to strike a balance between the two becomes evident with the events of the day (and the surrounding days). Emotions can be a little crazy with family, and work can also be a bit chaotic now as you sort everything out. Watch today for a tendency to overindulge as an attempt to tame inner discontent. Otherwise, you can be feeling quite courageous, enthusiastic, and adventurous. Mind you, the Sun has just moved into your solar tenth house for a month-long stay, raising your ambitions and bringing new energy to your career and public life. You’re becoming more aware of your impact on the world, how you contribute, and how you measure up. Responsibilities to others are highlighted, and it’s time to take charge!
The Full Moon occurring today heightens emotions all around you, dear Taurus, and specifically affects your immediate environment and communications. There can be a real flurry of activity, a sense of excitement, a sudden need to run an important errand, for example. Final word could arrive on travel or educational plans. Take care of pesky matters so that you can free yourself up for more adventurous and fulfilling activities later, especially with the Sun now transiting your adventure sector encouraging you to explore and discover new things. You may be feeling very passionate about something (or someone!) now. In the coming month, you are more adventurous than usual in your quest for experience and learning. Stress levels are lower, likely because you are more interested in the bigger, broader picture than you are concerned about the details. However, this very same attitude can have you starting things that you don’t end up finishing, precisely because you haven’t thought through the details. Nevertheless, it’s a healthy cycle for breaking the routine and exploring beyond your usual stomping ground. “Seize the day!” is your motto in the weeks ahead.
The Full Moon that occurs today is about balancing the give and take of intimacy for you, dear Gemini, or the giving and receiving of pleasure. Sharing issues come into focus, as do issues of power or ownership. Financial matters may come to the fore now, and circumstances are such that you are more aware of your desires and needs. The Sun just moved into the sign of Capricorn, bringing a new focus on intimate matters and behind the scenes activities in your life for the coming month, and you embark on a cycle in which you explore some of your deeper feelings. Some form of self-transformation is likely at this time of year (this cycle lasts until January 20th). Something may be put aside so that something else is gained. If you’re in need of regeneration of sorts, including kicking a bad habit, this is an excellent time to do so. Don’t be afraid of exploring the darker corner of your psyche with the goals of self-discovery and honesty.
You may have been feeling some inner restlessness recently, dear Cancer, but the appropriate channels for releasing energy may not have been available to you. Tension is building, in fact, towards something very positive and constructive. There are changes you need to make, and you’re more likely to take action if you’re unsatisfied. The Full Moon occurring in your sign today heightens your emotions and can bring about a vital revelation or culmination. Inner contradictions are par for the course now but will spur you into action to make essential changes in coming days. You’re apt to get attention, so make sure it’s of the positive variety! Also now, the Sun has just moved into your solar seventh house, launching a four-week cycle that brings your relationships into high focus. Personal goals and agendas may need to be put aside temporarily as you allow others to take the spotlight in your life. At this time of the year, your path to fulfillment involves honoring an “other” in your life. You have a lot to learn about yourself in the mirror of your interactions with others, and much to learn about a significant other as well. Today, the Moon energizes your sign, however, and your attention is me-focused!
Take the time for any activity that facilitates getting in touch with your intuition, which is heightened now, dear Leo. There may be a work project or health matter that is reaching a head with today’s Full Moon in your solar twelfth house. There can be very important dreams or intuitive flashes that occur today, and they’re about letting go of things and attitudes that no longer serve you well. Do your best to avoid nervous tension, which will distract you from what you’re truly meant to do. The Full Moon today can put you into dramatic touch with your inner world. Private and previously hidden matters come to light now, making it a good time in the coming weeks to heal and deal with them. Even so, the new solar cycle that just began yesterday and runs for a month brings greater attention to your daily routines, work, and self-care efforts. It’s a time when you take considerable pride in your work and perform it better as a result. You might discover new ways of approaching your work or daily routine. For some, pets, employees, or dependents can come into stronger focus during this cycle. Health and fitness matters assume greater importance in your life as well. Today’s Moon tends to bring you into your shell, as emotional regeneration is in order.
Friends can demand a lot of attention and possibly some support today, dear Virgo. There may be big ideas floating about, and you’ll do best to keep your feet on the ground. Even so, do take advantage of this rush of energy to ride your inner waves. Some drama in your social circle is possible with a Full Moon occurring in your sector of friends, groups, and ideals. You might also experience a romantic revelation of sorts, or a creative project is coming to a head now and in the coming week. The new solar cycle that has just begun and that runs until January 20th brings terrific energy and inspiration for creative efforts, relationships with children, and romance. You’re inspired and motivated to express yourself in unique ways. You are especially willing to take chances, and you might pay more attention to personal hobbies or recreation and entertainment. Think about any creative projects you’d like to launch and consider setting them in motion in the coming weeks.
There can be an accelerated pace to the day, dear Libra, particularly surrounding professional matters or reputation issues. While you might learn where you stand with others now, the picture isn’t entirely complete because of high-running emotions. Do what you can to avoid getting carried away with something, but do acknowledge your strong feelings on a matter now. While today’s Full Moon can pull up responsibilities or may put you in the spotlight, the Sun has just moved into your home and family sector. Your heart is moving towards your personal life, which will be in high focus in the coming month. The Sun is now at the lowermost position in your solar chart, and you’ll be especially taken up with domestic and personal matters now. Making yourself feel secure and content can be rewarding now. It’s a fine time for not only connecting with family but also with your own heart.
The Full Moon that occurs today can undoubtedly generate a lot of emotional energy, dear Scorpio, and, for you particularly, mental energy. However, it can be very challenging to direct it just for the time being, and your best bet is to take in today and take action later as emotions settle. Give yourself time to process any news or new information coming your way. The Full Moon is in a fortunate part of your solar chart, and it can bring illumination to learning matters, the fruition of a project, or deals that have nice payouts. An idea that you’ve been working on might blossom now. Advertising or promotional efforts can be successful. With the Sun freshly transiting your communications sector, the coming weeks can be busy, sometimes hectic, and focused on learning, sharing, and transmitting. Until January 20th, your focus is on managing your daily life more effectively and communicating with people more frequently. It’s a good time to get into touch with others and to handle some of the critical details of your life. It’s time to take charge! Even so, today is strong for introducing some adventure, however big or small, into your experience–it’s not the time to be tied down.
Intimate matters may heat up today, dear Sagittarius, or there can be tension surrounding ownership issues. Financial, sharing, and ownership matters are triggered by the Full Moon that occurs today. Now and in the coming week, there may be some drama with regards to a spouse’s income, taxes, debts, or investments. It may be time to settle some of your obligations on either emotional or financial levels. There can be new money coming into your life as well, or a shuffle of money sources. Yesterday, the Sun began its month-long journey through your financial and values sector, and during this cycle, you take more pride than usual in your material assets. Your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you right now, and what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value are strongly on your mind, perhaps driving many of your actions. Today, though, you’re inclined to read between the lines.
The Full Moon that occurs today, dear Capricorn, happens in your opposing sign (Cancer), which can point to relationship issues coming to light, but also to your feelings coming to bloom. Something that has been brewing inside of you can now lead to a personal epiphany. If you’d prefer to keep something to yourself, it’s better not to take the risk of exposure right now. Otherwise, this energy can be very revealing on an inner level. The Sun has just moved into your sign, beginning a month-long cycle that boosts personal power. It’s time for making changes that shape your life. Strive to be the best you can be during this solar cycle that emphasizes your personality, personal needs, plans, and manner which will get you off to an excellent start for the year ahead. The coming month is for confidently pursuing your goals and engaging in any confidence-building activity that helps to improve your outlook or image. After the New Moon Solar Eclipse in your sign on January 5th, you’ll feel even more in charge.
Tensions can arise today that revolve around scheduling issues or deadlines, dear Aquarius. Do your best to stay centered, and use any feelings of inner satisfaction to make positive changes now and in the coming weeks as the Full Moon today reminds you of your chores and physical needs. It’s a brilliant time to acknowledge a need to make important changes with your self-care programs, work, or habits. Even so, the Sun has just begun its month-long transit of your privacy sector, and this can point to the need to go under the radar for a while as you set aside a little extra time to rest, reflect, digest, and process. Until January 20th, this Sun transit points to a time to review the past year and to decide what needs to go, and what improvements you’d like to make. This comes in the month before your personal new year. You may naturally withdraw a little from more worldly endeavors, and you require more time for introspection.
The Full Moon that occurs today brings illumination to your life in the areas of creativity, friends, romance, and personal goals, dear Pisces. There can be an epiphany now, a turning point, or final word on a matter that pushes a situation forward. Others may demand your attention, and there can be a scurry of activity. Emotions rise to the surface, and while things can be fairly wacky around you just for now, it would be wise to listen carefully to what others are saying, and to what your heart is telling you, too, but then take your time before jumping to decisions and conclusions. More emphasis on socializing and formulating personal goals is in order now for you with the solar cycle that has just begun, and that is active until January 20th. You might join a group or club, or you could find that others are vying for your attention and invites are plentiful. Connecting with your need for friends or community can be in focus in the weeks ahead.
