Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Energies today are strong for resourcefulness, dear Aries, and you can do some satisfying and meaningful work, whether this is related to a job or a personal endeavor. You may be solving a complex problem or uncovering a resource that helps you tremendously. Even so, your heart is with your personal life, home, or family today as the Moon spends the full day in your solar fourth house. While you can feel pulled towards your responsibilities, you’re also in good shape for finding opportunities to bond with others through restful activities or relax on your own. This is a day for building energy or focusing on a particular project rather than scattering it around.
You benefit from the involvement or company of others today, dear Taurus, even if you are pursuing your own goals. You may very well inspire others with your ideas and plans. It’s a lively time for connecting and communicating. You’re in a strong position to express your feelings to a partner or good friend, or your bond can strengthen through a conversation. There can be some need to shuffle your priorities today, but you’ll find it relatively easy to make constructive changes now. You are discovering the hidden sides of your personality as well as untapped talents or new interests, and this is emphasized today. It’s a powerful time for understanding new levels of yourself and others.
This is a time for a boost or surge of confidence for dealing with the practical side of your life, dear Gemini. Improving your finances, work, and services can be in order now. Even little steps that move you closer to your goals can be very satisfying now. You’re enjoying the work you do and perhaps even your chores and activities that help you get organized or feel on top of your daily affairs. Today is also strong for doing some internal housekeeping of sorts — learning more about yourself and why you make the choices you do. As well, you may understand someone better, and this gives you a whole new perspective on things. It’s a day for perhaps profound discoveries.
A relationship may be motivating you to better yourself or do your best today, dear Cancer, and this is a pleasant motivator instead of something that makes you feel tense. You may gain some helpful insight into a friend’s situation now. Today can be enjoyable for love, self-expression, learning, connecting, and creating. The Moon spends the day visiting your sign, and personal urges tend to override most other concerns. You’re seen in a particularly attractive light today as the Moon connects happily with Venus in your romantic, creative fifth house. Others sense your sincerity, responding in kind.
Your practical cleverness draws others to you today, dear Leo, but your intuition is also in fine form as your ruler, the Sun, forms a creative aspect to mysterious Neptune. You’re in a wonderful position to gain an advantage in your work, and your willingness to dig deep is the ace up your sleeve now. Mind you, the Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, inclining you to need a break or escape from day-to-day demands. You may need to take some extra time to replenish emotional energy. You’ll enjoy such things as decorating the home, quiet activities out, and pleasurable pastimes in. Taking things easy makes sense now. Family activities can thrive.
Today’s energies are favorable for learning something that gives you an edge in your craft, hobbies, or work, dear Virgo. This is a good time for sharing ideas and making connections, too, but as cooperative as you feel now, you’re likely to want to pursue your ideas and plans independently. As such, you may be gathering inspiration and then arriving at your own conclusions. You’re in a fine position to follow up on a brainwave with pleasure and success. The Moon in your social sector all day encourages you to explore different options and enjoy new experiences. You might connect with someone with technical knowledge for a problem you’ve been experiencing, or come to someone’s aid with your own insight.
You’re especially drawn to those things that ground you, make you feel secure, and keep you focused on the moment, dear Libra. Matters related to security, money, and career get your strong attention. It may be a better time to follow the rules and do what others expect of you than to break out on a new path just for now with the Moon in your sector of responsibilities all day. There will be more than enough time to do your own thing in the weeks ahead. Even so, you can put your own unique spin on things now and more than get away with it. There is some tendency to feel torn between work and home or your professional and personal worlds today, but you find it easy to prioritize.
You are in a powerful position to bond with a partner or friend now, dear Scorpio, with Pluto and Juno connecting your social and communication sectors. It’s a time for getting an edge on a project or recognizing an opportunity. You’re in an adventurous, spirited frame of mind with the Moon’s transit of your solar ninth house, and this becomes you more than usual as the Moon connects with Venus in your sign. People especially enjoy being around you. While you appear to be wearing your feelings on your sleeve, a lot is going on under the surface of things. Bonding with others about ideas and ideals can figure strongly now. You might thoroughly enjoy teaching or guiding others today.
If you can manage some alone time today, dear Sagittarius, you can get a whole lot accomplished. Even if you can’t squeeze it in, your thoughts can often turn to what’s going on inside or under the surface of things. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, stimulating deep feelings and reminding you of your attachments. The Moon’s trine to Venus, currently transiting your hidden sector, could point to a warm, intimate connection with someone or particular enjoyment of alone time. This is also a favorable time to ask for help from others if you need it. Increased sensitivity and warmth are featured now.
There is grounding energy with you now, dear Capricorn, and today is terrific for narrowing in on those things that truly deserve your attention. Romantic bonds or creative work can also thrive now with more commitment, focus, or concentration. This is a powerful day for bringing more creativity and your unique stamp to your work and projects. Enthusiasm and inspiration gathered from a partner and friends can figure strongly now, although there can be part of you fighting your stronger desire for companionship. Others may be showing you a side of yourself you need to see, offering opportunities to rid yourself of those elements of yourself that are doing you a disservice.
You may jump on an opportunity to take care of outstanding problems and loose emotional ends today, dear Aquarius, and you’re likely to come across some empowering support from loved ones or a sense that you’re on top of things. Today’s energy is strong for work, organization, and practical solutions to problems. With the Moon visiting your work and health sector all day, too, you can feel revitalized through your work or practical focus now. Meeting with people who gently encourage or motivate you can figure strongly. Pouring your energy into one special task can be wonderfully rewarding and more enjoyable than scattering your energies around today.
This is a day when you simply want to do something constructive, dear Pisces, without the need to have a direction in mind. Relationships feel a little stronger. You also benefit from an influence that can bring a positive learning experience into your life. You may learn something that gives you a competitive edge, or that helps you move a project or studies forward. The energies of the day especially support your personal plans and energy levels. You’re in great shape creatively speaking, and it can be a spirited time. If you structure your day too tightly, your creativity may suffer.
