Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may be focusing on the practical side of your connections today, dear Aries. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, stirring the desire or need to handle details. This is in contrast to the Sun’s current mission this month to get you out and about, but it’s still a vital need. As such, you’d do well for yourself to find ways to compromise and find a balance between the two. Relationships may not be functioning at their very best early today, as you can be going in and out with wanting closeness or time to yourself. Or, there is some off-timing as people lack confidence socially just for now. Even so, if you can do something you enjoy, regardless of whether you’re able to share it with others, then you can go far now.
TaurusThis continues to be a good time for deep connections, dear Taurus, but the Moon in your solar fifth house today reminds you to get romantic or creative. You may need to make some time for personal enjoyment. Still, insecurities or self-doubt can play with your interactions in the first half of the day. Your timing can be a little off, but small discouragements can make happy times especially wonderful. It makes sense to focus on activities in which you generate your own happiness, not only because it can help magnetize what you want but also because you can discover that you’re pretty good at entertaining yourself. You enter a cycle today, in force for the coming three months, that’s excellent for planning and thinking ahead and devising long-term goals. Your unique insight or intelligence is coming into the spotlight.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your sector of home and family, dear Gemini, encouraging you to slow down and make time for quiet and comfortable activities. You gravitate to familiar faces and spaces, which can be good for you at this time in the lunar month. The Sun in your partnership sector encourages companionship and feedback, however. You might consider sharing activities that help you regroup, renew, and relax, or take some time to clear your head and disengage. Because people are more sensitive than usual in the first half of the day, it may be best to avoid criticizing as much as possible, even if you feel it’s constructive, as others are unlikely to take it very well. As the day advances, it’s easier to let things flow.
CancerWork or duties and personal interests are strong draws today, dear Cancer, but it’s best not to take on too much. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector and clashes with the Sun in your work sector later today. Aim for a balance so as not to stress yourself out. In the first half of today, you’ll do best if you select activities that keep you grounded. There can be guilty feelings if you haven’t paid enough attention to the important people in your life or other priorities. Making yourself feel more secure and independent will strengthen your resolve and emotional state. Fortunately, you’re beginning a new three-month cycle that puts you in better touch with your inner motivations and psychology. Reaching a better place of self-understanding can be a noble goal now. It’s also a time for straightening out problems in close relationships related to power dynamics, respect, or ownership matters.
LeoYou crave more comfort and security today with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house, dear Leo. The Sun in your pleasure sector clashes with the Moon in your security sector, however, and you may have trouble deciding whether you want to do something new or stick with what you know. The answer may be to do a little of both! While it’s a time of the lunar month for enjoying what you have and looking for ways to boost your feelings of security and comfort, you might decide to step out of the routine just a little to keep things fresh as well. The first half of today can highlight areas where you feel more vulnerable, which is also the case for others in your life. As such, there can be some touchiness to navigate. If you find people are defensive of their feelings or personal space, you might decide to save significant conversations for another time.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, and you’re likely to feel clearer about how you feel. While you crave more interaction with the world around you, you’re also in a rather self-starting frame of mind. Besides, it’s all too easy for others to slow you down right now. In the first half of today, it may not be easy to rally up a definite plan. People are sensitive and perhaps a little distant emotionally. You might want to watch for the subtle levels in any messages you convey now, as it may be missing the mark emotionally. As well, it’s all too easy for people to misconstrue things temporarily. Later today, you can find it challenging to integrate your need to trailblaze and your desire to stick with what’s familiar. A bit of tension can motivate you to make positive changes.
LibraWith the Moon in the sign behind yours all day, dear Libra, you take more time with your feelings and observations. It’s part of a natural cycle, but it can seem to clash with the Sun’s current mission to get you to do more sharing, connecting, learning, and collaborating. Consider that it’s best to process and digest recent events and feelings before pressing on. Doing so helps you bring your best self to your pursuits. You may need to work on guilty feelings if they’re preventing you from disengaging and taking time to rest and recuperate. In the first half of the day, Venus and Chiron form a minor clashing aspect, and a bit of chaos in your daily life can distract you. Aim to be a little more attentive than usual with diplomacy, especially with those you work with or spend a lot of time. Disagreements about sharing responsibilities, imbalances of power, or money can surface.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your solar eleventh house, dear Scorpio, stirring your need to enjoy new things and spend more time on happy activities. On the other hand, the Sun’s current mission is to have you settle into a more predictable pace to help stabilize and steady you. With the Sun and Moon at odds today, you could feel divided, but it helps motivate you. It’s the kind of stress that gets you going and productive rather than brings you down. In the first half of today, however, a Venus-Chiron aspect points to some hypersensitivity. While you’re usually coming across very well these days, you may feel a bit stiff or unnatural about sharing your ideas, creations, and love at this time. Getting over this hump can go a long way towards more confidence in what you want and need.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, dear Sagittarius, and you’re investing your emotions in your performance, ambitions, or long-term goals. This focus might clash with the current personal trend with the Sun transiting your sign as it encourages you to find yourself and your independence. Finding a compromise may not be straightforward but worth the effort. As well, people around you may seem to need a little space to understand their feelings in the first half of the day, and the tendency to doubt one another is stronger than usual. Adjustments and sacrifices seem in order, but dealing with these now can help to free you up for real opportunities later. If someone is not as accommodating or confident as usual, aim to take things in stride as it’s likely temporary.
CapricornIn the first half of the day, judgment may be a little off, dear Capricorn, with a Venus-Chiron aspect in play. Some hesitation about expressing your affections or stiffness in your communications and interactions may result. Your timing may be a bit off, but it’s temporary. You might only need a bit more time with your feelings before embracing them. The Moon spends the day in a fellow Earth sign, helping you feel more natural and forward-focused. Even so, the urge to break out of a routine can clash with your need to take things easy, and the Moon’s squares to Mercury and the Sun highlight this conflict. A compromise is possible, and the restlessness this tension stirs may lead you to important changes or improvements.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Aquarius, which can have the effect of deepening your mood. It clashes with Mercury and then the Sun in your social sector, however, and there can be an internal struggle between committing to a special pursuit and experimenting or diversifying. You’re likely to feel strong calls to explore and detach, but pouring your energies into a full-on, intensive pursuit is likely to be most satisfying. Getting in touch with your deeper self and its needs and wants can be powerful at this time in the lunar month. In the first half of the day, reflection is favored over taking decisive action regarding the bigger things. You’re also beginning a three-month cycle in which you host the asteroid Pallas in your sign, and you’re likely to stand out for your creative ideas, insight, or unique viewpoint. You’re more confident and inclined to assert your opinions and share your ideas.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day at the opposite side of your solar chart, dear Pisces, and the desire for companionship or another perspective on a situation is strong. While you may feel a bit divided between work and play today, you’re in excellent shape for doing both of these things well once you focus or decide on a pursuit. Nevertheless, the first half of the day can require a little more care with feelings, but it’s workable. Aim to give yourself time to cozy up to a topic and focus on those things that genuinely energize you for best results. Not everything is clear in the world of your affections, but the remedy for uncertainty is focusing on simplifying. As well, it makes sense to allow yourself time to process your feelings before making important decisions.
