Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies support your communications and personal interests, dear Aries, but if too much is demanded of you, you may need to set some boundaries. This can be a busy, engaging day. You’re especially ready to take on a mental challenge. A bit of healthy competition might motivate you. With your action-oriented frame of mind, you can be especially interested in starting something new or building upon a fabulous idea. As the day advances, aim to be moderate and avoid going over the top since judgment may be off. While you may be feeling very optimistic, try not to take on too many commitments and avoid doing things to excess.
TaurusWhile you can be quite masterful in a leadership role or with work, there can be a small reality check to manage in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. It does feel good that you are in control of your moods rather than at their mercy. However, you may be holding back so much that you are no longer doing yourself a service. You can be quite resourceful and could feel a stronger motivation to make or spend money today. While your needs for steadiness and comfort are strong with this transit, you’re ready to pursue these things with determination. Later today, the tendency is to go overboard. As such timing is a little off temporarily. Avoid over-committing and stretching yourself too thin.
GeminiThe Moon spends another day in your sign, dear Gemini, and emotions are clear and on the table. With this transit, you’re more emotionally engaged than usual. You’re particularly resourceful and dynamic. While this energy is smooth and natural, responsibilities to others can weigh on you in spots today. Getting into a real place or seeing the reality of a situation can only benefit you, however, as it improves your decision making. Later today, try to tame restlessness and overblown expectations. There could be news coming in that is exaggerated.
CancerWith the Moon once again in your privacy sector all day, dear Cancer, some more rest and time for reflection are in order. You’ll do well to have an emotional reset of sorts. Even so, you’re not stagnating today with the Moon in harmony with Mars. While you do require a break from situations that drain you emotionally, you’re also very much in tune with your goals. Examining the past and reorienting yourself as you prepare for a new beginning may be in focus now. The first half of the day is not quite as warm as the second–you may be nursing your insecurities. As the day advances, a Venus-Jupiter influence suggests you should watch out for practical details as they’re easy to miss. Avoid putting all hopes in others right now. This is a nice time for getting in touch with important feelings and gaining new insight into problems.
LeoYou’re inclined to make room for pleasant activities today, dear Leo, and sharing your ideas can be especially enjoyable. You’re highly motivated to learn or guide. The day should be spirited and hold some room for exploration and discovery, even if this only happens on a mental level. Conversations can lift your spirits and inspire exciting new ideas and plans. Even so, timing may not be ideal today. Try not to count on plans that appear to be a little too unrealistic, but do stretch your mind and entertain bigger ideas and plans. There can be a tendency to overstate or promise too much, even unintentionally, just to keep the good mood alive. These things can bite back at a later date, so try to keep things as real as possible.
VirgoThe Moon spends another day in your solar tenth house, dear Virgo, and the desire for more order and purpose in your life is with you now. You’re braver or more determined than usual about taking on challenges. Strong feelings lead you to take the initiative and put something behind you. Even so, there may be some scattering of energies today, as it can be difficult to truly know what you want. It would be a good idea to try to uncover the source of any discontent you feel now. There is some tendency to overindulge if you’re not in touch. Some things can wait, others are better off handling as soon as possible. Be wary of others’ promises right now, even if good intentions are behind them.
LibraThe Moon spends another day in your spirit sector, dear Libra, and your mind is open to opportunities and possibilities. Today’s transits encourage you to expand or learn new things. A relationship or special someone can inspire or challenge you to push a little further and reach new heights. Natural discoveries and spontaneity figure strongly. Your responses to others are generous today. However, it’s important to avoid overstating or exaggerating. Restlessness or an overestimation of your needs can lead to less than ideal choices. The best advice now is to think things through before making commitments. Aim to keep your expectations of others to a realistic level to avoid ups and downs.
ScorpioYou’re in stronger touch with your desire to produce and organize today, dear Scorpio. You tend to gravitate towards activities that improve your life in small but essential ways. Generally speaking, you’re pleasantly stimulated and motivated, and today, your emotions are strong but contained. Even so, Venus is picking up some tense aspects today and tomorrow, and your affections may not be as straightforward. There can be a bit of off timing or misunderstandings in relationships. Family relations can be stimulating today, but too much can be made of little issues. The mood is open but a little undependable.
SagittariusYou can feel a bit hesitant about making new moves, dear Sagittarius, and it’s a good idea to take your time for now. However, as the day advances, you are more expressive and ready for action. You seek interaction or feedback today, and your relationships are strong on your mind. Someone might gently motivate you to take action or do something fun and interesting that you may not have felt motivated to do otherwise. It can be a time when others’ input can be instrumental, but there is some tendency to take things too far or to overdo as the day advances. You have a real zest for action, but not necessarily a solid plan. Look for new ways to get creative, but avoid overcommitting. The bits and pieces you pick up these days can lead to something quite successful. Today, however, there can be a tendency to overreach. It’s best to remind yourself that having more of something will not necessarily make you happier.
CapricornWith the Moon in your work and health sector again today, dear Capricorn, you can be wholly focused on getting your affairs into order. It’s a good time to organize, sort, and analyze. In the first half of the day, interactions can be slightly stiff as responsibilities are uppermost in your mind. As the day advances, you’re less restricted. It can be most satisfying to handle some loose ends. The Moon harmonizes with Mars, boosting your motivation levels. However, watch for a tendency to make promises that can eventually be difficult to keep. You’re in a great position to work on a problem behind the scenes or sort out a domestic issue with great success. Simplifying your life, or turning to tried and true comforts, is likely to be the better strategy.
AquariusThe first half of the day tends to be a little stark emotionally, dear Aquarius. You’re more inclined to focus on flaws than you are to see the things that are working well. As the day advances, your optimism grows. In fact, it may go to another level. Your personal interests are engaging, and you might thoroughly enjoy sharing them or your ideas. Learning comes easily. You might connect with someone on a mental level, and it’s motivating. Energy and confidence can lift up very high and then dip, much like a sugar high. As such, it makes sense to be moderate with commitments or promises.
PiscesYou may get off to a slow start today, dear Pisces, and it may be best to take your time easing into things. As the day advances, you’re more engaged. The Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, which is a retiring transit, but its connection with Mars motivates you to take action. You want to keep busy and produce something worthwhile. It’s a potentially excellent time for tapping into deeper needs, desires, and wants. Nevertheless, it’s unlikely to be easy to focus on practical priorities. Distractions aside, you can be feeling quite optimistic now.
