Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re more inclined to deal with details and tie up loose ends today, dear Aries. You don’t need to be the center of attention, as this would take away from what you want to get done. There is more patience in your approach to the world than usual today, and if channeled well, you can get a lot done. It can be a good time for breaking away from a bad habit or situation. It’s a good day for focusing on one or two things–distractions are not welcome now, as you may become quite motivated to pursue a particular project or research an idea, and it’s likely more productive and constructive than it is obsessive. Conversations easily become deep or profound, even if they don’t at first seem to be heading that direction. The Moon’s move into your partnership sector later today turns your focus to achieving more balance in your relationships or perspective.
TaurusThe Moon spends most of the day in your sector of play, romance, and creativity, dear Taurus, putting you in the frame of mind for enjoyment. Transits today tend to help you keep a good and steady pace. You are presenting yourself with strength and commitment but also a strong sense of fun. Generally speaking, this is a good period in your year for getting in touch with your innermost needs and desires. While you prefer clarity and certainty in your life most of the time, part of you gravitates to complexity or drama these days, and this trait is pronounced now. If you’re not recognizing that this energy is coming from within, you may be attracting it to you through events and other people.
GeminiThe Moon spends much of the day in your home and family sector, dear Gemini. While part of you might find the slower pace today a bit of a downer at first, you begin to accept it as a useful thing as the day moves forward. Your emotional focus is on security and safety, and this makes familiar and comfortable activities quite appealing. Still, your focus and concentration levels are particularly strong today, and conversations now can be most rewarding, perhaps getting to the bottom of a matter, which can help you center yourself. You may want to insulate yourself from change, distraction, and demands on you just for now as you catch your breath. Later today, the Moon moves into a more playful and expressive house, where it will stay for a couple of days, and you open yourself up to more adventurous ideas and activities.
CancerYou might reach a whole new level of understanding with someone special, or even with yourself, dear Cancer. It can be satisfying to break through self-deceptions or limitations. Conversations about or with a partner can be very fruitful and significant today. Still, the Moon spends much of the day in your solar third house, and you tend to seek out some variety. Your ideas are wanted or in demand. Excellent energy is with you for connecting and sharing. You’re also in good shape for discovering a new interest or coming upon useful information. Later today, you’re ready to settle in with the Moon’s move into your sector of home and family. Getting comfortable becomes an emotional need.
LeoThere can be a focus on financial and practical affairs today, dear Leo. Small efforts toward tightening your budget now can help in a big way. You have been coasting along in many ways, but today, you may be identifying problems and looking for answers to recent complicated feelings or events. Business activities can be clever and positive today, and a steady pace works well for you. You can be rather self-sufficient and focused, and a prime motivator is a goal to ultimately feel less indebted to others or dependent on things. Maintenance tasks can be the most appealing. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar third house, and you crave more mental stimulation.
VirgoYou have a little more influence today, dear Virgo, which can be positive if you’re using your power well, but difficult if you are cranky or expressing criticism, as your words have more impact right now. The day is good for getting to the bottom of a matter – your perceptions are keen – and for relating one-on-one. Family matters have been powerful in your life recently, and this will continue, but today, it may be best to ease some of this focus to attend to your other interests or needs. Good energy is with you for finding satisfying ways to express yourself. The Moon in your sign much of the day can make you more spontaneous and impulsive than usual. However, there are stabilizing influences that help ground you and turn your attention to the practical side of things.
LibraWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house much of the day, dear Libra, it can feel natural for you to prefer to stay in the background or to pull back from demanding situations. Today is less about moving forward and more about building your strength and momentum for the road ahead of you. You see more layers to a situation, which can help you gain a sense of peace. There is good energy for developments around the home and with self-improvement efforts. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign, and you’re likely to feel refreshed–as if you are beginning anew on an emotional level. It’s a good time to aim to leave behind emotional issues that have been annoying you or undermining your personal comfort.
ScorpioFriends and connections are in strong focus today, dear Scorpio. A Mercury-Pluto parallel occurring today tends to increase your personal presence and impact. You are usually quite courageous about facing the truth, and today this trait is emphasized. Finances can benefit from extra attention and strategic thinking. You are more purposeful and confident than usual. This can be a wonderful time for making long-term plans or thinking up tangible ways to realize a goal or dream. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house, prompting a natural need to pull back from situations that seem to demand something from you. You need to replenish, restore, and heal at this time of the lunar month.
SagittariusThis can be a strong day for personal and professional appeal, dear Sagittarius. Others seem to naturally follow your lead or go along with your plans. Challenging problems are best approached from their very root, as you’re more inclined to see things in terms of origins and the past. It’s a good time to focus, get things done, and handle your responsibilities, but also to do some deeper thinking. It’s a little easier than usual to draw on self-discipline and patience. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar eleventh house, and you begin to concern yourself less with the pressures of performance and responsibility, preferring to unwind.
CapricornIt’s a good day for connecting with others through communications, dear Capricorn, although it’s also powerful for doing some deeper thinking or research. You tend to be in the background these days, likely willingly, giving you important opportunities to reflect before a busier, more visible period coming in a couple of weeks when the Sun and Mercury move into your sign. Your sense of what will work and thrive is in great form today, making it a good time to sort or declutter. Your emotional energy runs high, and it comes naturally to channel it into satisfying activities.
AquariusMuch of the day can find you a little introspective and craving a deeper connection to a project, idea, person, or yourself, dear Aquarius. You might explore a topic or work on a project intently and with higher powers of concentration than usual. Even so, interesting questions can come up with friends, giving you pause to think. Life is busy but mostly in a pleasing way. Soon enough, it will be natural to take some downtime. Until then, networking is important and beneficial, as you can come up with some interesting ideas, leads, and inspiration. Today’s energies are good for implementing small, manageable changes. You more naturally draw upon your resourcefulness.
PiscesWhile you’re a generally flexible person, you can be thinking more intently today, dear Pisces, and you especially value your time. You could also be a little rigid when it comes to opinions and ideas right now. Be persuasive if it suits you, but avoid putting too much weight in whether or not people are adopting your ideas today. Still, people are more attracted to you today, tending to seek your input. As well, it’s a great day for getting to know someone better or for learning another side of a story. Later today, the Moon heads into your intimacy sector, where it will transit for a couple of days. Pulling back and considering your options seems the best strategy now.
