Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThis morning is strong for accomplishing something, however big or small, dear Aries. You’re in a practical frame of mind and quite content to go about your business in an orderly fashion. The Moon moves into your communications sector later today, but it doesn’t get less productive. This can be a time of an inspirational awakening or change. Others’ ideas jumpstart your own thinking, and ideas emerging now are particularly notable. Sharing your expertise or lending a hand can be rewarding. There can be a pleasant focus on learning and connecting. Structured learning can be more effective than usual.
TaurusThe Moon continues to move through your sign in the first part of the day, dear Taurus, and you’re comfortable in your skin. While you prefer to play things by ear with this transit, the Moon heads into your resources sector later today and making or building something useful holds appeal. You have lovely energy with you for making progress on a project or business endeavor. You might enjoy a good buy with the Moon in your money sector forming harmonious aspects. The desire to have a little more control of your life is a motivating factor now, and the need for tangible results improves your self-discipline.
GeminiThe Moon continues its transit of your soul sector for a good part of today, dear Gemini, and then later emerges in your solar chart, stimulating a strong need to feel connected or acknowledged. Until then, take the time to rest and reflect, if possible. When the Moon heads into Gemini, you can feel inspired and motivated. Moving just a little out of your usual routine or comfort zone can be rewarding now. Small doses work best since they help grow your trust that you can handle uncertain situations. This is a good day for seeing opportunities all around you. You acknowledge feelings that you’ve recently pushed to the side, and emotions are sharp and clear.
CancerWith the Moon in your solar eleventh house in the first part of the day, dear Cancer, your emotional focus can be on friends, a cause, or a long-term plan. Later today, the Moon heads into your privacy sector, and you benefit from pausing your busy schedule or taking an emotional vacation. You can feel very much in need of calm. The Moon’s move here is a signal from the cosmos to take things easy (or easier) so that you can catch your breath and process recent events. Your interest may lie in bettering yourself through self-understanding. Time spent alone or unwinding can be particularly helpful. Reflection can turn up new insight into the emotions and the past.
LeoThe first part of the day is quite suitable for taking care of business, dear Leo. Decisions surrounding business and other practical matters tend to be sound. Later today, you’re far less insular as the Moon heads into your social sector for a couple of days. There can be a nice feeling of cooperation or forward motion. You might see a relationship matter more objectively, or your attention is more balanced between your own plans and your relationships, which benefits you. There can be a subtle boost in your social or romantic life, or friends tend to bring good news or advice. It’s a gently stimulating transit, particularly favoring reaching out to others or latching onto a special heartfelt pursuit. Your sense of timing is good right now, and plans may come together satisfyingly.
VirgoToday’s energies are good for some gentle ambition, dear Virgo. You’re inclined to appreciate the finer things in life, and putting in the effort toward securing your future in some way can be satisfying. Anything that brings better function to your daily routine, habits, and work holds special appeal today. Intuition is strong for business and practical affairs, but you might also revive interest in something you put on a shelf in the past. You have a stronger sense of your duties and others’ expectations, and you can feel quite comfortable with your responsibilities right now, putting you in a perfect space for productivity. You’re also more aware of how your reputation impacts your life.
LibraThe day can feel quite balanced, dear Libra. The first part of the day is good for emotional strength and centering yourself. As the day advances, you get in the right frame of mind for more sharing or learning. You can be quite interested in expanding and growing something important to you. The need for a change of pace can dominate, but you’re also ready to take things slowly but surely. It’s easier to be objective about a matter that was once quite confusing. Clarity comes naturally today. You might enjoy valuable feedback from others, and if you choose to listen to it, you might make some subtle but helpful improvements.
ScorpioThe Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, but later heads into your solar eighth house of intimacy. You begin the day quite focused on bringing more harmony and a stronger sense of balance to your life. Later today finds you a little more serious. Your need to observe and reflect is stronger than usual–you’re processing your feelings and recent events. Rather than pushing forward with new activities, you’re inclined to take time for self-discovery. You might view a past matter differently, and it’s revealing. The day feels balanced and orderly, and it’s just what you need at the moment.
SagittariusYou do best if you let your curiosity and optimistic spirit guide the day, dear Sagittarius. While you might begin the day wanting to take care of business and tidy your affairs, you become more focused on relationships as the day advances. You might enjoy communications that please you and make you feel hopeful for the future. Today favors a mature, forthright approach in your dealings. The urge to soak up ideas and inspiration from others is strong, and nice opportunities seem to emerge to do so. Whether it’s through the encouragement of a significant person in your life or a relationship goal is motivating you now, it’s a fine time to nurture your ambition and get things done.
CapricornThe Moon continues its transit of your creative sector for part of the day, dear Capricorn. You’re in good shape for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood. Later today, you prefer not to be idle, and you’re ready to put the work in as the Moon heads into your work and health sector. You’re likely to feel a strong desire to help or to be of service to others with practical tasks. It’s a time when you thoroughly enjoy piecing things together. Quiet or solitary activities suit you just fine, and in fact, tend to bring out your best today. It’s a good time, too, for handling the details that will further your financial or work goals. A pleasant emphasis on building up your resources is possible now, and you’re finding it easy and natural to tap into your talents.
AquariusThe first part of the day excels for building emotional strength and self-esteem, dear Aquarius. Quiet or behind-the-scenes activities appeal most. Later today, you’re ready to share yourself with the rest of the world! You’re inclined to make the most of your leisure time. The Moon moves into your creative sector for a couple of days, encouraging you to share your happy feelings. Saturn is now bringing more maturity to your character and organization to your life, and today, your emotions are engaged. Working on longer-term projects that don’t have immediate dividends, whether material or spiritual, makes sense now.
PiscesThe first part of the day can be pleasantly busy with the Moon in your solar third house, dear Pisces. You’re motivated by your curiosity. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector, and you begin to crave more consistency. You seem to need more comfort, familiarity, and quiet at this time of the lunar month. It might benefit you to dial things down and enjoy yourself, and you might consider it a regeneration of sorts. There can be a nice focus on attention to your personal needs, family, or home life. You seem to need the time and space to get yourself together. You might take a more objective look at your personal life or past today, coming up with insights into how to improve your base of operations or support structure.
