Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA Mercury-Uranus aspect influencing the day stimulates creative, progressive thinking, dear Aries. It’s a time when you want to get out of a thinking rut and embrace new ideas, methods, and approaches. Today’s energies are strong for gaining a clear 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 may feel renewed as you discard old ways of thinking, and you’d rather not 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.
TaurusYou’re likely to latch onto exciting ideas today, dear Taurus, and your conversations can spark a nice feeling of optimism and hopefulness. The Moon heads into your sign for a couple of days, bringing more color and animation to your emotional world. You’re thinking outside the box, and you’re in good shape for education, communications, and projects revolving around technology and new-thought topics. News or ideas seem to nudge you along in a positive direction, making you feel freer or lighter. You’re letting your mind wander and wonder more often these days, and detaching yourself from opinions can help you detox on a mental level. Circumstances today tend to get you thinking. A helpful conversation or invitation may be part of the picture.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your privacy sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini. While this is a hidden, retiring area of your solar chart, and you’re inclined to need more rest, today’s energies are light and hopeful. You are forward-looking and might decide to share your feelings with someone you trust today. You’re in fine shape for exploring the depths of a topic or subject, if you desire. Inspiring conversations can take place with Mercury heading into 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. Your intuition serves you well about intimate relationships.
CancerYour relationships are a powerful source of bright ideas right now, dear Cancer. There can be realizations, musings, or discussions that lead you to important insights today. If conversations were touchy yesterday, you’re now turning these things into positives. You could be moving forward after an open conversation or personal honesty. You could be itching to unburden, and the freer you feel, the more likely you’ll welcome positive new ideas and mental energy into your life. You might enjoy an exhilarating meeting of the minds today, or you could 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 a Mercury-Uranus transit to express yourself or let your mind go places it hasn’t gone before–explorations can lead to pleasant discoveries.
LeoThe Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart today helps you tune into priorities, dear Leo. Gentle challenge or pressure to perform can be good for you at this time of the lunar month. Keeping a goal in mind can help you focus. The Moon aligns with Uranus and harmonizes with Mercury as these planets move towards a trine. These influences are excellent for fresh ideas. You’re dreaming up new methods for accomplishing your objectives, particularly related to your work, habits, chores, health, and daily life. Mentally exploring your options can be most helpful. You may very well see a way forward, and you certainly have a sharp eye for making progress and improvements. Ideas or news can fuel your optimism about health or work matters, perhaps inspiring you to brush up your skills and engaging your emotions.
VirgoWhile recent conversations or revelations may have triggered some soft spots, dear Virgo, you’re in an empowering position to take the lesson from your experiences today. The Moon heads into your solar ninth house of spirit and the higher mind for a couple of days, inspiring you to see the bigger picture. Mercury heads into harmony with Uranus, and both planets are moving in harmony with your sign. It can be a time of feeling positive, whether you have a strong desire to move something forward or simply move on mentally. There is progressive energy with you today that inspires you to look forward with more confidence. Ideas or new methods for making advancements can come to you seemingly out of the blue with your mind as open as it is today. Your outlook on creative projects or romantic relationships improves, and you can feel as if you’re turning a page.
LibraToday’s energies are strong for opening up about your personal life or some healthy self-honesty, dear Libra. This can happen by giving matters further thought or through discussions with or about loved ones. The Moon heads into your solar eighth house of intimacy for a couple of days, inclining you to connect with your deeper needs and feelings. It meets with Uranus, already there, and the desire to break ground and improve is strong. It’s a fine day to let go of petty matters and focus instead on more spiritual or emotional issues. A Mercury-Uranus influence helps stir inventive solutions to home-related problems and new approaches with loved ones. You might recognize the need to put your worries behind you to focus on what’s ahead of you. Personal revelations or memories can have the effect of nudging you along a positive path.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar seventh house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, meeting Uranus there. The urge to soak up ideas and inspiration from others is strong, and nice opportunities seem to emerge through your relationships, projects, and personal interests. Fluidity between your feelings and mind helps you express yourself well, making it more straightforward to iron out differences. You might find inventive ways to advance your endeavors. A Mercury-Uranus influence points to a special enjoyment of others’ perspectives–you can put them to good use, or they can spark your own ideas. Brainstorming can be useful, and others’ feedback might open your eyes to a situation, benefiting you nicely. You’re not interested in doing the same things, and you may be pushing boundaries a little in your conversations.
SagittariusYou’re especially open to new or alternative ideas and methods today, dear Sagittarius, with Mercury’s upcoming connection to Uranus. This transit can put you in a good position to gain insights into money and business matters. Finances or work matters move forward, or you feel more optimistic about the direction in which they’re heading. Instead, information you come across can be helpful or a pleasant surprise. Your intuition about health or work matters can be significant, and you’re more in touch with your inner guide, in general. Spontaneous thoughts and conversations can be most interesting, perhaps even nudging you along a good path.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your creative sector today, dear Capricorn, and you’re inclined to want to express your feelings. Helping you with this is a Mercury-Uranus connection that also ties in with the Moon. Mercury is currently transiting your sign, encouraging you to seek mental stimulation and give voice to your ideas. Today’s transits stimulate a sense of being free or more courageous about expressing yourself in unique and spirited ways. Your unique qualities are in demand! Open and honest conversations can figure strongly. The atmosphere encourages looking ahead rather than dwelling on the past, which is refreshing. You could feel quite inspired to follow your heart.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, stimulating your needs for familiarity and comfort. Nevertheless, the day favors new ideas and novel approaches. Being especially open and forthcoming with family can be rewarding. You’re opening up! You’re in a good place to work with special people in your life to make progress on a practical or psychological problem. Inner restlessness can sometimes lead you a bit astray, but today, it motivates you to make a positive change. You can feel quite inspired and positive about what the future might hold for you. Novel ideas about how to make yourself feel more secure can figure strongly. The atmosphere is open and honest, and trying something new can be refreshing.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your solar third house of communications for a couple of days, dear Pisces. With a Mercury-Uranus transit, there’s a strong theme of mental stimulation and curiosity today. It can be a fine day for studies, networking, and fun and interesting discussions. Good ideas flow more freely today, and this is especially the case as you relate to and interact with friends and associates. It’s a good time to discover ways to move forward and open up the lines of communication.
