Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile you may face some stubbornness today, dear Aries, transits are powerful for transforming and healing. Aim to avoid clinging to what is familiar if this keeps you in a mental rut. Outside pressures tend to release as you answer to your natural rhythms, most significantly as the day advances. While you are inclined to push your boundaries just a little, your common sense and intuition work well for you now. You are expressing confidence in others and yourself, as well as a strong desire to move forward and to forgive and forget. Reaching out or sharing can bring special rewards. It can also be a time for learning valuable skills and gaining knowledge that opens doors for you. Self-respect is building, and this creates just the right energy surrounding you that attracts success. Your persuasive powers are considerable today and tomorrow.
TaurusAim to take a new look at any frustrating situations by taking a step back and seeing what it is that may have been blocking you, dear Taurus. Today’s transits are strong for problem-solving. You may not be entirely on the same page as others in spots today, but the results can be stimulating if you see your differences as something to learn from, even if frustrating at first. Watch for impatience, aiming to pace yourself as much as possible. Helping you with this is a Mars-Chiron transit that’s coming into play as the day advances. It’s powerful for activities that promote physical and emotional healing. Opening up on a personal or intimate matter can be especially rewarding. Peace with the past is a real possibility now, freeing you up for exciting times to come. It’s a good time to share something in confidence and feel better for getting it off your chest.
GeminiImpatience can have its way with your day if you’re not careful, but it’s best not to let it, dear Gemini. Helping you with this is a Mars-Chiron transit coming into influence as the day advances. It’s a time for working with differences and finding a balance since passions run high. Helping out a friend or acquaintance can give you a real boost. It’s an excellent time to bond, but it’s also a time for maturely dealing with occasional moments of emotional distance, as accepting some ups and downs is an essential key to healthy relating. A person or group association that is more creative, visionary, unusual, or unconventional can figure strongly in your life these days. Social activities or networking can be reinforcing and pleasing. The Moon heads into your sector of home and family, and getting comfortable becomes an emotional need.
CancerThe Moon moves into your solar third house for a little over two days, dear Cancer, encouraging you to diversify or dabble. You’re a little more communicative and curious. It’s best to avoid taking on too much, however, which is easy to do in spots today. As well, watch for taking things too personally, and this can be an enriching day. It’s possible that a differing viewpoint can lead you to an important conclusion. Especially as the day advances, transits encourage you to take a hands-on approach rather than focus on the details. Putting the past behind you is not always an easy process, but today, you’re looking forward and feeling confident about doing so. Efforts to improve your routines or health have excellent results and make you feel good. You’re solving problems, primarily because your attitude is more fearless and because your energy for taking care of matters is fresh. There can be some tendency to go over the top with what you’re doing, but overall, it’s a good time for centering yourself and approaching life with more positivity.
LeoWith the Moon’s move into your solar second house for a couple of days, dear Leo, emotional sustenance comes as you enjoy simple activities and attend to practical matters in small but effective ways. While there can be some missteps today, you’re bound to learn from differences and eventually feel closer to someone as a result. As the day advances, you’re in solid shape for gentle challenges, and you’re especially enterprising and pioneering–not inclined to overthink things. You might come up with an exciting idea for a new venture, and the motivation to get things done is powerful. It’s an excellent time to express your affections primarily through actions.
VirgoThe Moon’s move into your sign today pushes your emotions to the surface, dear Virgo. It brings increased force to your feelings, especially those that you’ve swept under the carpet. However, with the Moon’s square to Mars, it’s best not to jump too quickly to react or draw conclusions. A Mars-Chiron transit is coming into play today, and it helps you see the bigger picture. You are braver about facing your fears, which can lead to valuable solutions to problem areas. You could be a little more sensitive and emotional than usual, and a minor disagreement is possible, but try not to let this drain you. In truth, you can learn much from differences. With more confidence in your abilities to resolve conflicts or get around obstacles in your path on an emotional plane, you can move mountains. You are especially attracted to the healing arts or anything that boosts your spirit and makes you feel more vital.
LibraPassions run high today, dear Libra, so that whether you’re feeling love or frustration, they’re magnified. As a result, there can be extra sensitivity and some ups and downs. Seek ways to free yourself of guilt or over-commitment. Helping you with this is a Mars-Chiron transit that comes into play today. A feeling of closeness, whether with your own heart or with someone special, can take over in a positive way. You can see the whole of a situation on a people level, which benefits you greatly. Putting a grudge behind you can put you in a more confident state. Connecting, networking, and sharing can figure strongly. Even so, the Moon heads into the sign behind yours for a stay of a little over two days, promoting rest.
ScorpioThe Moon moves into your social sector for a little over two days, dear Scorpio, and cooperation is the focus. Mars and Chiron are heading into harmony, and you feel equipped to take on a challenge. A partner or special friend might come through for you today, or your confidence in a relationship grows. Take notes or make lists if necessary, and also be sure to take the time to do little favors for others that boost their spirits. Changes you make today tend to focus on getting rid of the non-essentials, which ultimately allows you to reduce stress and clear your mind. Money sense is powerful right now, and your instincts for what needs doing with your practical affairs are excellent. There can be a healing process now, and you gravitate to activities that help you digest and manage your emotions. Minor tensions are more likely than usual, but turning them into something positive comes instinctively.
SagittariusThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Sagittarius, and people are noticing you more than usual. You’re more goal-oriented at this time of the lunar month. Passions are strong today, and the temptation to stir the pot is with you. Constructive, physical outlets might help release pent-up emotions. Fortunately, you’re ready to take on virtually any challenge as the day advances with Mars, currently in your sign, heading into harmony with Chiron. It can be a time for fruitful, exciting connections, and people are drawn to you magnetically. The chance to expand your world is with you. New insights into your relationship needs or a changing attitude towards love can emerge.
CapricornThe Moon heads into an area of your solar chart that encourages big-picture thinking and gaining perspective on your life, dear Capricorn, where it will stay for just over two days. This brief transit promotes a more involved, active, and open approach to your world, and a Mars-Chiron influence coming into play today reinforces this. Still, communications can be on the provocative side. Taming the desire for drama can help you see the opportunities. Bonding with family and loved ones can occur through shared activities. Interactions are rich, and while you remain in a somewhat undecided or limbo phase on certain levels with Mars in your privacy sector, you’re benefiting from this quiet time. There can be an opportunity for a cathartic release regarding a private or personal matter.
AquariusThere can be a somewhat competitive tone to the day, dear Aquarius, but also the potential to grow and improve. Relationships can improve with more attention given to them but are also quite vulnerable to pressures to be more than they are. Releasing pent-up anger should be done in ways that don’t eventually bring you or others down. It’s time to attract fresh, enlightening experiences, and a Mars-Chiron trine on the horizon is likely to help. Feeling fresh, alive, and vital figures strongly, especially as the day advances. Taking positive action in (or for) a friendship is possible, and confidence in someone or yourself can be an excellent mood lifter. You can learn much from casual conversations, and you might find a solution to a problem that has previously stumped you.
PiscesFeeling more optimistic about your goals or responsibilities today can lead to a sense of inner joy and peace, dear Pisces, even with some minor tensions. The day’s energies are reactive, but it’s a good time to turn situations around positively. Transits boost your personal magnetism. Stronger conviction is with you if you find more meaning in what you are doing, which is a real possibility now. It can be challenging to pinpoint what other people truly want from you at times now, but with ambition increasing in comfortable ways, you’re ready to solve problems.
