Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends another day in your sign, dear Aries, bringing more color to your feelings–you’re quick to react and respond with this transit. With the Moon’s alignment to Mars, this goes double! Mars is in a hard aspect with Pluto, aggravating matters. However, it’s a transit that first emerged in August and then recurred in October. You’re now at a point where you can handle a problem and move on. Competitive feelings are stirring, and your desire to assert your independence or do your own thing is stronger than usual now. The pressures to keep cool or stick to the rules are also in place, and you can feel torn or stuck. Easing back on your pursuits, even just a little, can help reduce stress and release some pressure. The chances are good that your performance in all areas of life will improve if you do so. Certainly, the tendency to make too much of a situation is a potential problem today. However, trying to explain your way out of something can be a waste of time just for now. It may be wiser to let your actions do the talking.
TaurusThe Moon spends another day in your privacy sector, encouraging you to wind down and reflect or restore your energy, dear Taurus. In fact, your private life can be animated, and today’s energies can pull up any fear you may have about not being ready or prepared for a situation. You could feel a little drained or demotivated, but the pressures to perform and get things done are high. Jealousies or resentments can be an issue today, but the good news is that you’re ready to change things. If you’ve been fixating on an unresolved, frustrating matter, you may want to put it behind you now. The key to reducing stress is identifying areas where you’ve been too wound up for your own good and then consciously easing off them a little at a time. Do watch for a tendency to speak before you think since people are more sensitive than usual.
GeminiWhile the day’s energies can be complicated, dear Gemini, stirring up some problems can ultimately help you by getting things out into the open. Releasing your grip on a relationship, a network, or a situation can help release the truth of a matter. Worrying about it may have caused far more damage than facing things. Make reducing stress your priority. If you’ve been fixating on something that has only served to leave you feeling dread or fear, then it’s time to take steps to ease off, if only just a little at a time. Don’t allow fear to keep you from enjoying your life. Keep in mind that with today’s transits, signals easily get crossed. Insecurities about being able to meet your goals may lead to uncomfortable situations or tension. Watch for placing too much value on things that don’t deserve your attention.
CancerThe Moon spends another day in the top sector of your solar chart, dear Cancer, encouraging a stronger focus on your ambitions, goals, and responsibilities. Your performance is more important to you than usual. However, your emotional orientation can clash with relationship goals, or you can feel a little off-balance. If you’re dealing with competing drives, it’s important to ease some of the pressure in both areas so that you can reduce stress. You may get the chance to put a conflict behind you once and for all. Even so, it’s not particularly straightforward to make a decision today–you’re inclined to hedge a little. Frustrations can magnify, but you’re working toward a beautiful new perspective once you work beyond fears or insecurities. Consider ways to unburden yourself in some significant way today.
LeoThe Moon spends another day in your spirit sector, dear Leo, boosting your desire to improve, grow, and thrive. Nevertheless, some unresolved matters can emerge, and you might benefit from paying them attention. Tension can result from overattachment to a particular method, idea, belief, or point of view. The desire to expand, learn, and experience life firsthand seems to be at odds with your ambitions to manage your daily affairs. It can be challenging to ease off in either area. It’s important to recognize limits, and it may be a good idea to ease some of the pressure so that you can catch a break. Certainly, you’re inclined to question your decisions today, but it’s best to treat this only as a natural and temporary dip. You may need some time to center yourself since information is inclined to be contradictory or missing. Aim to focus on improvement and be sure not to rush things that don’t have a deadline.
VirgoToday’s energies are on the more intense side, dear Virgo, but they ultimately help you get problems out into the open so that you can put them behind you. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, continuing to encourage your need to go within. It meets up with Mars in the same area of your solar chart, stirring desires. Mars is in a challenging aspect today, aggravating frustrations and resentment. If someone isn’t taking you seriously, you may reach a boiling point. If so much is riding on a relationship or project that it compromises enjoyment, this is a time to release some of the pressure. Aim to recognize the need to let go of something just a little if you’re holding on to it too tightly. It may be best to treat tensions today as a chance to rid yourself of buried matter. Though it can be a little messy getting there, it may be time to confront your feelings or fears.
LibraThe Moon continues in the partnership zone of your solar chart, dear Libra, highlighting a need to be with others. Even so, aspects today tend to raise tensions, and frustrations or resentful feelings can emerge. You can feel torn between others’ wants and needs and your own feelings and fears, but you’re now reaching a point when resolving things is possible. While the tendency is for drama or extreme actions today, it would be wise to ease off things just a little to release some pressure, one step at a time. Aim to make changes that help you live more authentically and less fearfully. Certainly, doubts can surface, but don’t let them drag you down. You’ll arrive at a broader perspective later, but for now, the details are emerging.
ScorpioYour ambition for making improvements to your daily routines is strengthening, dear Scorpio, but your patience isn’t strong today, particularly if things aren’t moving fast enough. Competition is good for you in moderation if it encourages you to up your game with nutrition, health, fitness, or work. Today, look for signs you’re pushing things too far or expecting too much. Changes in communications or approaches might help you smooth things over. It may be time to try to ease some of the unnecessary pressure in your life. There can be extra sensitivity all around, and people are not taking everything the right way. There can be the opening up of sore spots that feel uncomfortable, but you get the chance to heal in so doing.
SagittariusThere may be some concerns and worries that put pressure on you today, dear Sagittarius. Today’s Mars-Pluto square can reawaken tensions or disagreements related to money, ownership, or values. However, the chance to finally resolve them is also with you–you need only recognize that resolutions can take a bit of time. Alternatively, you may be feeling conflicted on an emotional level about your feelings towards someone. Through these emotions, you can learn a lot about yourself and your situation. The goal is to manage fears and insecurities that have stopped you from following your heart, pursuing love, or expressing yourself creatively. It may not be easy to fully back a decision today, as there is a sense that something is exaggerated or magnified, good or bad. Resolve not to worry about what–or how–someone is communicating since it’s too easy to misinterpret their words today.
CapricornThe Moon’s transit of your home and family sector points to the need for familiarity and comfort, dear Capricorn. You might arrive at creative, dynamic ideas for handling your home or personal life today. There are some tense aspects today, and they can aggravate problems, although the chance of resolving them runs high once they’re out in the open. Buried emotional matters can surface, and they seem to compete with or undermine your desire for more independence. It may be that, for your own good, you need to loosen your grip on a matter that keeps you on high alert. Aim to pursue your ambitions, but recognize when you need to rest and decompress. Vague disappointments from your past or feelings of guilt have their way of creeping up on you in spots today. While you’re likely to feel you’re making more progress than not, there can be insecurities or hurts to explore in the process. Aim to face rather than avoid sensitive issues, but do keep in mind that the tendency to misinterpret words runs rather high at the moment.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to connect and share. While this Moon transit is a light one, today’s aspects can certainly raise tensions. There can be some impatience with matters that aren’t working as you’d like. It’s a good time to recognize anger if it’s been hanging around, causing problems in your life. If you’ve been unwilling to explore the deeper issues recently, it may have caught up with you now. It’s probably better to deal with things rather than keep them buried since unresolved matters have a way of emerging in disruptive ways. Watch for a tendency to react too quickly to frustrations. Under today’s transits, worries and concerns seem to magnify, and you may want to watch for a tendency to see the best or the worst of a situation rather than merely seeing it for what it’s worth.
PiscesPractical activities grab your attention today with the Moon in your solar second house, dear Pisces. You tend to focus on security, money, or comfort matters, more so than usual. Events today seem to stir resentment, but the good news is that you have a good chance of resolving problems. You do need to watch for pushing things, however. Pressures that have been building with a person or project can reach a turning point. If overmanaging a particular area of your life has subtracted from your joy, you should probably confront the problem. There can be some challenges in getting a message across tactfully. People may be making mountains out of molehills today. Give tricky issues time before taking anything to heart. Insecurities may be getting the best of us temporarily.
