Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesAgain today, good energy is with you for organizing and prioritizing, dear Aries. Long-term goals might become clearer, or you’re patient enough to consider them. You might also attract some positive attention today, perhaps enjoying the rewards of recent accomplishments or considering and setting new goals. The support of others motivates you to do your best right now. Even so, we’re also heading to a Mercury-Neptune square, and there can be some disarray or confusion. It’s not easy to see things clearly — the strength of your emotions or wishes seems to dominate later today. There can be resistance to following directions or instructions, compounding the problem. If you’ve been bored with what you’re learning or doing, you might resolve to make more room for creativity in your life. Small efforts to chip away at a problem that looms large are better than none.
TaurusPartnerships are animated these days, dear Taurus, and sometimes challenging. Early today, love matters may be intense but peaceful and intimate. It’s best to be patient with others right now. You can gently persuade today, and it’s a nice time for showing support for someone. Also today, you can enjoy pursuing a new topic or train of thought. Aim to grab opportunities to lighten up and release stress. Still, later today, you may feel that your mind is playing tricks on you, or there is a frustrating lack of clarity, in general. Mercury, the fact-finder, is about to clash with Neptune, which prefers a bit of mystery, and you may have to compromise to gain peace of mind. The likelihood of misunderstandings on social or romantic levels runs high, and wishful thinking could confuse your idea of others or their view of you. If a situation calls for mental focus, then be sure you double-check your reasoning. Otherwise, consider ways to revitalize work or projects that have become dull.
GeminiEven though there is generally impractical energy later today, dear Gemini, you can be quite effective and productive in the first half of the day if you put your mind to it. You’re tuning in to the tiniest details and finding meaning in them! The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and you’re pretty sensitive to the people and happenings around you but in a mindful, confident way. Still, later today, there can be some foggy thinking as perceptions are intensely colored by what you want to see or are afraid to see. Either way, it’s not easy to see things in a realistic light just for the time being. Indulging in fantasy can be quite therapeutic, but the trick will be to do so in the right situations. It’s best not to approach the more significant decisions in your life based only on what you see today. Others may not know the whole story or may not be revealing it! It’s too easy to become distracted, which can signal the need for a change of pace or mental refreshment.
CancerYou might gravitate to people who seem confident or sure of their lives at this time, dear Cancer. One-on-one communication is more successful today, and good feelings between you and a friend can happen if you are teaming or partnering up. Aim to be patient and think about what’s best for you in a big-picture sense. You can feel good about sharing your experiences with someone. As well, someone can help you get in better touch with your feelings and ideas. Even so, situations or tasks that require crystal-clear thinking later today may not fare well with an approaching Mercury-Neptune square. There’s a tendency to gloss over facts, and straight answers from others don’t seem forthcoming. Regular routines may seem dull, particularly if your mind goes back and forth between fantasy and realities. Taking a break so that you can refresh your mind makes sense if it’s possible.
LeoYou might be feeling a bit of an energy drain later today, dear Leo, as there can be some feelings of discontent or doubt. However, in the first half of the day, your stamina and motivation remain strong. It’s a good time for nitty-gritty tasks, as you are more willing to and capable of handling them. Mixing work or chores with pleasure is not always successful, but it may very well be at this time. You could feel the need for some pampering or recreation, but you want to be productive as well. Smooth and flowing daily routines will ultimately help you achieve your goals, making it worthwhile to put some energy into getting them into shape. Even so, as the day advances, thinking can drain rather than energize you. Confusing situations can emerge, particularly regarding personal boundaries, others’ feelings, and financial matters. It’s not the ideal energy for setting the record straight. Information is missing or hidden, and your imagination can skew your perceptions of a situation. Resolving to live in the moment and take care of business at a later date makes the most sense now. You may be better off leaving some things up in the air or open to interpretation.
VirgoSomething you do or, more likely, say today can be a wonderful release, dear Virgo. You are more willing to let something go to move forward, or you could be primarily focused on making improvements that may not have instant results but that you know will be worth the effort in the long run. You’re less likely to allow others to pull your strings right now, but you’re also patient enough to recognize the value of taking a break from the driver’s seat sometimes. You might feel especially close to someone or a vision/project early today. Creating something and sharing it with others can be satisfying with the Moon spending the day in your sector of joy and creativity and forming happy aspects. You’ll probably accomplish more if you focus on creative and otherwise engaging tasks or follow your heart in some manner. However, Mercury heads toward a square to Neptune, and there can be chaotic elements to manage or possibly some confusion with a close relationship. Distractions can lead to less-than-ideal decisions, or misunderstandings can figure strongly. While you may want to clarify a matter or express your ideas, someone may not be genuinely getting what you’re saying, or they seem uninterested. Alternatively, you may not be feeling up to thinking hard or deeply about issues, and it makes sense to aim for flexibility with your schedules and to enjoy imaginative activities.
LibraThe first half of the day can be good for streamlining activities that help you clear your head, dear Libra. Someone special to you can come through at the last minute, but even if this is not the case, you have an opportunity to feel stronger about relying on yourself. A financial strategy can emerge now and can be very useful to you, especially regarding home and family. The Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, and if you need some time to center yourself and get your bearings, today can deliver. The day’s energies are good for nesting or processing. Later today, a Mercury-Neptune transit comes into play, and there can be some feeling of disorder or disorganization. This influence is good for intuition but challenging for precise work. It may be best to reserve judgment, or it’s time for a break and mental refreshment. You might resolve to seek out healthy escapes from dull tasks and routines.
ScorpioIn the first part of the day, you more readily handle matters that need settling, dear Scorpio. Others seek your input and appreciate your insight. Again today, the power of your words is even stronger than usual. While you may have been feeling quite a bit of pressure to chase your goals recently, today, you are slowing down a little to consider the long term. Also today, you might thoroughly enjoy learning, sharing, and connecting. Light conversation or activity can lead to bigger and better things. Later today, a Mercury-Neptune aspect comes into play, leading to possible misjudgments, whether of money, time, or energy. It’s hard to be objective just for the time being. Creative activities may energize you, but real-life drama can be draining now. It’s not the best time to sign on the dotted line or to make large purchases. People could be misconstruing not only what’s said but what might be implied. The need for some mental refreshment becomes clear.
SagittariusEnergy levels are unlikely to be at their strongest right now, dear Sagittarius, but this is still a great time for building up your strength and stamina. Today’s Moon transits remind you of the power of the present and living in the moment. It’s a good day for enjoying earthy activities. You might discover clever ways to protect, improve, or build your resources. As the day advances, a Mercury-Neptune transit comes into play, and seeing things clearly becomes a real challenge. It’s not easy to get a point across or to find concrete answers. There can be some uncertainty or mental distraction now. Others may not be clear with (or about) you, or they might blow what you say out of proportion. If you can let go of overthinking or seeking out definitions and accuracy, this can be a good time for creative thinking and writing. Miscalculations are likely today, but going off the mark may end up a helpful exercise if you take it as a learning experience.
CapricornAs you seek truths, dear Capricorn, you can sometimes go too far with Pluto in your sign. You should aim to protect your own light during this long-term aspect by asking yourself how much you genuinely need to know. However, there are many positives to Pluto’s transit, and early today might be an example. Your connections with others can boost your sense of fulfillment. Continuing today, you’re feeling more purposeful, happy to make improvements. Favorable energy is with you for self-expression and a positive self-image. You’re not necessarily more emotional than usual, but you’re more in touch with what you’re feeling. However, a Mercury-Neptune square is coming into play, and it’s best to avoid doing things you usually wouldn’t do later today, particularly if they involve deception or taking significant shortcuts. It’s a good time to open your mind to new possibilities, as long as you keep in mind that there’s a strong tendency to mix up fantasy and reality.
AquariusA new game plan can come to you in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. As well, with the Moon in your privacy sector all day, you’re likely to crave extra time to yourself. You might seek a healthy escape from the usual fare, and emotional refreshment is easier to find. With Mercury heading into a square aspect with Neptune later today, however, you may need to change your thinking on a matter or alter your expectations. It’s best to keep in mind that perceptions may be temporarily wavering. There can be a spaced-out quality to later-day, making it best to reserve judgment for a time when you feel clear-headed.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, input from friends may be more helpful than you initially think, dear Pisces. Your display of strength of character can open up opportunities for you. Today’s energies are generally good for sharing ideas or enjoying a network and friends. More than usual, you’re seeking satisfaction from your social life or happiness goals. You might attract some goodwill your way. However, Mercury is heading into a clashing relationship with Neptune, and distractions or uncertainties can lead to a few hassles later today. It’s best to fact-check since gossip and misinformation can be a problem. Your imagination may not serve you well if it’s playing to your insecurities. You might expect others to understand you even without stating your needs clearly, or your fantasies interfere with achieving your goals. The detours you make can lead to fantastic new ideas or perhaps resolutions to make important changes. However, it may be best to wait and see.
