Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou begin the day with a strong desire to enjoy your spontaneous, expressive side, dear Aries. Today’s transits tend to invite errors or delays in communication, however. Ideally, these things can lead to critical thinking or interesting detours. Some dissatisfaction can motivate you to make progress, but if you’re nurturing tension instead of using it as fuel, you’re likely to spin your wheels. It’s probably best to focus on problem areas or to take a step back so that you can look at a situation or concern more objectively. Chances are, the problems can be fixed with a little patience or perspective. With today’s transits, it’s probably best to avoid stirring up controversy and putting others on the defensive. Instead, you might focus on doing some heavy digging on a more impersonal matter.
TaurusYou’re in the best shape if you draw on patience today, dear Taurus. You’ll benefit from a step-by-step approach. At times today, you can feel slightly out of sync mentally, making it a good idea to plan ahead of yourself. Communications can go awry, or you’re easily distracted. Ideally, however, you see things you may have ignored or overlooked. Aim to build your strength and confidence–a theme reinforced by the Moon’s transit of your home and family sector in the first part of the day. As the day advances, there’s some tendency to mistrust. While a bit of skepticism can be healthy and helpful, a Mercury-Pluto aspect in effect now can push this a little too far as it tends to exaggerate the negative. Think hard on a matter only if the process excites you and serves you well, and aim to know and respect your limits for best results.
GeminiA good part of you is focused on making peace these days, dear Gemini, with Mercury in your solar seventh house. Even so, another part of you wants to deep-dive into problem areas. If a matter is leading to a dead-end, you may need to investigate your alternatives. Just be careful not to jump into (or out of) something due to current frustrations that you may later regret. Secrets can surface, but you’re learning to let go of the past in helpful ways, and this can even feel empowering and purging. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you could grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness. Opening to it, on the other hand, can lead to a sweet eureka moment. Later today, answers that seem too easy or on the surface of things are unsatisfying, and it’s important not to go too far with this! Watch for a tendency to dwell or harp on problem areas and negative alternatives. Consider that you stand to learn a lot from and with others, even if there could be some frustration in your communications.
CancerYou crave some order or predictability today, dear Cancer, but not everything is likely to go according to plan. If you’re falling behind with an endeavor, it may be best to set aside some time to be alone or put yourself in a setting with limited distractions. You could be dealing with impatience or nervousness in others. Work, health, and service issues are especially active on your mind these days, and ultimately, it’s about making useful changes. Nevertheless, there can be some ups and downs involved. Later today, do your best not to absorb the stress and tension of the people around you, and instead find something you love doing and direct energy into it. It can be enjoyable to bring more energy to your projects, routines, or work.
LeoThe Moon continues to transit your sign for the first part of the day, dear Leo, animating your feelings and prioritizing your emotional needs. Later today, it heads into your solar second house, and you crave more predictability. Still, a change of plans or opinions can throw you off-center temporarily. Avoid making snap decisions, and aim to learn from differences rather than jump to react to them. The airwaves may feel a little clogged with Mercury, the planet of communication, forming minor challenging aspects. Aim to recognize if you need time and space to sort things out or do your best to avoid distractions. Later today, there is a cautious theme in conversations and with decision-making. It’s good for you only to an extent. Avoid dwelling or probing too much for your own good. Try not to become obsessed over finding answers to problems, but do try to focus your energy so that you can make headway on the things that matter. You’re interested in work that engages not only your mind but your heart as well, and this is a time for adjusting your approach to getting what you want by adding some strategy to the mix.
VirgoThe Moon continues to transit the sign just behind yours, dear Virgo, pointing to a general need to decompress. However, once the Moon enters Virgo later today, you’ll feel more interested and interactive. Your planetary ruler, Mercury, forms minor challenging aspects, and there can be some off-timing or a tendency to overthink things. You could feel misunderstood, or there are jittery feelings to contend with in spots today. These transits can introduce minor fluctuations or delays into the realization of your goals just for now. Consider that there may be some method in the madness, or changes of plans could lead to something better. The tendency to be easily distracted and a little spaced-out is strong, and exercising some caution makes sense. As well, watch for going too far with worry, a line of thinking, or mistrust. You are less likely to turn a blind eye to problem areas, which can be useful to a degree, but know when this ceases to serve you well.
LibraMinor delays or changes of plans can be in focus today, dear Libra. An adjustment of your schedule or a rethink of a matter may be in order, which can be annoying, but edits made now can be worth your time. You may feel that others are misunderstanding you or challenging your viewpoint. While you tend to focus on details and practical matters today, you’re also likely to be quite bored with the routine, so that you’re at your best if you work on something productive in new, unusual ways. You can benefit from working some inventiveness into everyday tasks. Later today, there can be issues surfacing that seem to want airtime, but it may not be easy to pinpoint or express tactfully. Aim to clear these up and work on resolving problem areas but try not to overthink or overextend yourself as you do. Sometimes trying to fix things with more words can make matters worse, and this may be one of those times.
ScorpioYou’re in an especially goal-oriented frame of mind starting the day, dear Scorpio. However, decisions and choices may be tricky, particularly if your schedule is too chaotic. When it comes to your money and valuables, avoid hastiness today, as there can be a tendency to forget or overlook important details. On the other hand, mental strain can keep you on the fence about a matter or a person in your life. It may be best to stay there until you have further information. Quick judgments are unlikely to serve you well at the moment. Suspicion can threaten to interfere with the good vibes later today, and directing your energy into investigating impersonal matters may be better than focusing your analysis on intimate affairs and topics close to the heart.
SagittariusYou’re looking forward as you start the day, dear Sagittarius. Life doesn’t feel very organized for now, but you can adapt to this. Your strong sense of future trends helps you tune into the need for small changes and adjustments. Being flexible makes transitions much more comfortable. Tensions may stem from worries about those things left unfinished. You might feel that work and daily routines are weighing you down, or you could feel unappreciated for the unseen things you do. Later today, try to resist the tendency to push for an answer. You may end up learning more through letting things play out and observing.
CapricornYou begin the day with a rather introspective focus, dear Capricorn. You’re inclined to watch and see rather than jump into action. Communications can be flawed or imperfectly delivered with Mercury forming minor challenging aspects to Uranus and Pluto. With these transits, the best strategy is to allow for more time or patience and manage things step by step. A scattered approach will only serve to turn the dial up on anxiety further. Later today, there’s some tendency for mistrust to get the best of you. While healthy skepticism can serve you well, if fear or worry is in the mix, you may make more of a situation than it warrants. Avoid attempts to micromanage situations that probably should be left alone for now.
AquariusIt’s a good idea to look before you leap on a mental level today, dear Aquarius. Thinking is a little scattered, and it can be challenging to get a straight answer. With this atmosphere, jumping to conclusions is probably not wise. It’s a better time to assess your life with some level of detachment, but it can become more challenging to do as the day advances. There is some tendency for words to get twisted or people to read negativity into situations if they’re on edge. Going too far with probing questions may be part of the problem and probably best avoided. You may be stirring up a bit of controversy. Aim to invest time and energy into a pursuit that requires concentration or dedication.
PiscesTaking care of business and pressing matters continues to be in focus in the first part of the day, dear Pisces. However, the day’s energies are on the scattered side, and you may need to adjust to a somewhat erratic pace. If you experience a sudden lack of steam with a relationship or project, it’s likely temporary. Mulling things over a little can work in your favor, but if it leaves you feeling too divided or drained, step back from the problem for perspective. You might receive advice that bothers you but consider that it could be useful in bits and pieces, and a more rounded decision can result, even if you don’t take the advice. Be kind to yourself and avoid negative thoughts beyond healthy skepticism.
