Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesDisagreements about beliefs and opinions can be more annoying than usual today, dear Aries. Transit can stir up an ongoing tension that is emphasized or brought to the foreground now. It’s best not to make significant changes or decisions, not only due to finicky transits but also because a Solar Eclipse occurs early tomorrow. You are in no mood to conform to others’ wishes, but you’re inclined to waver between seeming to know precisely what you want and retreating. Give yourself a break today if you can manage it. Because the Moon is Balsamic today, it’s a time for letting go rather than revving up. Pay attention to random feelings and thoughts today, as they may help fuel your inspiration down the road. Clear your mind of things that can’t or shouldn’t be changed, and think about ways to truly improve your life.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your contemplative, deep solar eighth house, dear Taurus, you’re ready to let go of an unhealthy attachment. The Solar Eclipse early tomorrow will help you do just that. Today, it’s better to decompress and let things flow. However, picky transits can stir some restlessness. You could be feeling a little claustrophobic regarding recent commitments. Consider areas of inner unhappiness, but avoid sweeping decisions or actions for the time being. Others may be roundabout, which can leave you feeling like you’re going in circles. The day is better suited for making minor adjustments. Today’s new ideas and promises may not have much permanency, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time considering different possibilities.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Uranus aspect can keep you guessing, dear Gemini, and it may be better to focus on what needs changing rather than who needs to change! The former approach is more constructive since it encourages self-awareness. It’s the day before a New Moon Solar Eclipse, and that means you’re better off winding down. You can feel up and down: one minute confident, the next minute unsure, but none of these ups and downs are likely to deter you in serious ways. Today, slow your approach just enough to see where you might be missing something important. Your defenses may not be up to par, leaving you somewhat vulnerable to others’ judgments or comments. Be gentle with yourself. Take in now, and take action when it feels right. Consider ways to improve, enhance, and enjoy current relationships.
CancerIf you’ve left some things undone, you could feel a little stressed about them now, dear Cancer, but it’s better to pace yourself and avoid overdoing. Misunderstandings may be part of your day and slightly annoying or distracting. There’s a tendency for others not to take your gestures as you intend. Important decisions should probably be delayed for a day when judgment is sharper. The day’s energies tend to be a bit up and down, but on this day before a New Moon Solar Eclipse, it’s better to wind yourself down. Still, you might envision goals related to your daily routines and health. Lay low, reflect, revise, and dream today for best results.
LeoDecisions don’t come easily, and you may need to let go temporarily if thinking becomes counterproductive, dear Leo. With a Sun-Uranus aspect in play, it may be best to think about what to change rather than jump into action right now. Further, a New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs early tomorrow, and redirection is likely, so take heed now. Trying to push the pace is more likely to work against you today. You may need to get over a couple of small hurdles and make some minor refinements. Aim to take the time to reflect and finish up projects that may interfere with your New Moon goals. Physical energy may be low, and there can be a tendency now to avoid the real world.
VirgoWith a Sun-Uranus aspect today and a New Moon Solar Eclipse early tomorrow, dear Virgo, letting go a little may be better for you than trying to push ahead. The Moon heads into your home and family sector, and you require some downtime. Still, today can feel as if it’s moving more slowly or sporadically than usual, and it’s better to focus on what needs to be done rather than worry about the pace. It’s a good time to consider attitudes that are no longer serving you well. You might consider putting projects to rest or aside if they can wait and if they will interfere with getting the important rest and regeneration you need in the coming days and possibly weeks. Reconnecting with your need for familiarity, comfort, and security is important now.
LibraWith the Moon’s move into your communications sector, dear Libra, you may be seeking a bit of extra mental stimulation or variety. If you’ve taken on too much, you’re likely to feel the tension today with the Sun and Uranus at odds but not quite confronting one another. Part of you wants to keep things light, while another part would prefer to go all in. On this day before a New Moon Solar Eclipse, it’s better to wind down and relax than to wind yourself up. Don’t let today’s finicky aspects convince you that you need to worry or stress over a matter. Instead, discontent or restlessness can be a sign that you need to make changes in the future. New interests and directions are on the horizon.
ScorpioYou can be sensitive to feelings of being stunted in terms of growth and progress today, dear Scorpio. While minor challenges are unlikely to resolve just yet, allowing and exercising more freedom in your relationships in small steps can be helpful. Do watch for a tendency to focus too much on the things you haven’t finished, as this can lead to a sense that you’re behind when your progress may be quite acceptable. Do your best to slow down and pace yourself, and avoid overthinking for best results today. The impulse to buy something can be sudden and should probably be tamed until you get a plan in place. Avoid all-new endeavors on this day before the New Moon Solar Eclipse. It’s a natural end of a cycle in which new projects are best set aside in preparation for new beginnings to come. Examine insecurities if they arise, as some self-understanding can put you in a stronger position going forward into a new cycle.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Uranus transit can give you a sense that you have unfinished business, dear Sagittarius, which can lead to unnecessary stress. In truth, minor adjustments are better than sweeping changes today. Do listen to your inner stirrings that call for a need for change, particularly surrounding work, health, and habits, but avoid succumbing to the idea that you need to make changes immediately. If you feel tired or unable to get going today, you may very well need a bit of a break from routine or some extra rest. You might aim to cut out distractions as much as possible on this day before a New Moon/Solar Eclipse in your sign. It’s better to wind down and take in, reflect, and relax.
CapricornWhile there can be a somewhat jagged or hectic pace at times today, dear Capricorn, you’re in a fairly good position to keep a low profile and devote a little more time to resting and relaxing. The Moon heads into your privacy sector, and it’s a natural time to let go, wind down, and process. A New Moon/Solar Eclipse is about to occur, and this goes double. Be sure to take time out for emotional recharging. Today pulls you into a quieter emotional place, but transits make it tricky to unwind smoothly. Temporarily, it can be tricky to honestly broach taboo or complicated topics today without ending up feeling awkward or out of the loop. Even if you think you should confront someone about a matter that’s been bothering you, something may prevent you from doing so, but a window might eventually open. Take your time today.
AquariusToday’s minor challenging transits can stir up some inner tension, dear Aquarius, particularly if you have unfinished business related to friends, networks, or home and family life. Juggling these areas of life can be tough. In truth, you quite likely have more time than you think available to handle these matters, and rushing through them could lead to poor decisions and results, so take your time. We’re heading toward a Solar Eclipse, and what’s happening around the time of this lunation helps pave the way for personal changes and new beginnings. Today, before this New Moon, think and process rather than push yourself ahead with all-new endeavors.
PiscesThe Moon moves to the top of your chart, drawing your attention to your priorities, goals, and standing, dear Pisces. Early tomorrow, it will join with the Sun, forming a New Moon, and today is best for taking in rather than pushing ahead. This New Moon happens to be a Solar Eclipse, which can be a little more draining than usual before you regain motivation and direction. Aim to take things easy in the meantime. With today’s Sun-Uranus transit, be careful with your words. This influence could leave you feeling like you have to rush to finish a related matter or push out something before it’s ready. Try not to succumb to unnecessary pressure. It’s better to think about what needs to end or attitudes that should be left behind rather than beginning all-new endeavors.
