Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Moon in your partnership sector today, dear Aries, look for ways to get along better with others. Still, with today’s transits, you might temporarily lose some motivation for what you’re doing, or you could feel some doubts as you reassess certain paths or projects. You might aim to focus on letting go of negative feelings to make room for more joy in your life. With the Sun in your solar ninth house, you’re focusing on the bigger picture, but its square to Neptune today points to a tendency to feel a little held back by some issues that you’ve left untied. Uncertainty is part of this, and while it’s uncomfortable, the sooner you either take care of it or learn to live with it, the better. It’s especially important to avoid making broad statements, as things can be misunderstood. Take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. Misjudging things is entirely possible with today’s transits, so it’s best to leave assessments open-ended. The key to handling the day well is to be moderate and to avoid going over the top.
TaurusYou want to feel useful and productive today, dear Taurus, with the Moon in your practical work sector all day. Even so, today’s aspects tend to point to divided attention and some uncertainty. Ambiguities are temporary and, in some ways, useful for helping you pace yourself. However, it’s best not to make impulsive moods based on your current mood or perceptions if they’re going off course. A desire to make a deeper connection to someone can cloud your vision just for the time being, and wishful thinking has a way of skewing your perceptions. Some confusion with boundaries in relationships or balance and power issues in partnerships can hang over you today. Sometimes comparing a current situation with a past or imaginary one can interfere with current happiness. On the other hand, you may need to clear the path of sketchy allegiances before getting to a better place.
GeminiWith a Sun-Neptune square active today, dear Gemini, it’s all too easy to have a veil over your eyes in some areas. Or, a sense of uncertainty about where you’re heading can drain you of energy temporarily. Aim to leave important decision-making for a clearer time, if possible, as this is a time to observe and reorient yourself. It’s not the time to push your plans forward or make significant commitments. Sometimes, pushing for direction can work against you, when coming to a direction more intuitively is best. If people in your life are pressuring you to find a path or define one, you may want to let them know that you need some time and space to discover it for yourself. Take note of areas where you’ve lost a bit of inspiration or steam. You may be looking for more meaning and a deeper connection to the world around you, but these things take time.
CancerThe Moon spends today in your home and family, dear Cancer, and you gravitate towards secure and familiar places and people. This transit finds you a little more cautious or reticent than usual, and it serves you rather well considering the Sun-Neptune square active now. It may be best to approach the day in a relaxed, creative way, where appropriate, keeping in mind that things may not be clear-cut or certain. You may feel out of wind, or motivation levels come up lacking temporarily with this transit. What’s inspired you in the past may not entirely cut it and may need some adjustments, or you might seek a different source of inspiration. If you’re considering something new, remind yourself of your usual limits since boundaries are not clear today. Keeping conversations light and activities straightforward while avoiding making promises may be helpful.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your solar third house, dear Leo. While you’re interested in knowing the facts, today’s transits point to a lack of clarity. On the one hand, you might enjoy some dreamy, creative, and possibly inspiring elements. On the other, your mood can be a little too dependent on others’ reactions or circumstances going your way. There can be a reason to hesitate, and it may be best not to commit to something you could later regret. Some self-doubt, or doubt about recent undertakings, is natural right now and may very well help steer you in a better direction if you give it a little time. The cosmic airways are a little chaotic with the Sun’s square to Neptune and a Mercury-Jupiter minor challenge. It’s important to give things a little more time to iron out. You might try to avoid going over the top in your communications later today. You might communicate something, likely very positive but perhaps exaggerated, and this can lead to complications down the road. Try not to count on plans that appear to be a little too unrealistic, but do stretch your mind and entertain bigger ideas and plans.
VirgoThe Moon spends today in your solar second house, dear Virgo, stirring your need for comfort, security, and reliability. However, today’s transits tend to blur boundaries. There can be evasiveness in a relationship, or you may be dealing with some dashed hopes or deflation if a situation (or someone) isn’t pulling through for you as you’d hoped. While it’s temporary, it makes sense to pay these feelings a bit of attention since they can show you areas of your life requiring some refreshment. Try not to self-soothe with lies to yourself, and instead, aim to give yourself and situations a bit of space. At the same time, avoid commitments or hard conclusions until you’re in a clearer frame of mind. If you’ve been unhappy with confronting the same old issues in close relationships, this can be a time for changing your approach. Tackling high expectations may be your first step. The tendency is to promise or overstate your feelings, but this can get you into tricky territory. You might focus on a project or cause that genuinely inspires you.
LibraYou’re seeking a fresh start with the Moon in your sign all day, dear Libra. While this transit often brings out your enterprising side, a Sun-Neptune square transit seems to slow you down today. Just for now, it’s hard to make sense of the signals you’re receiving, or you can be confused by something communicated. You may be in a better place if you entertain daydreams and avoid expecting everything to run as scheduled. Look for ways to strengthen weaker areas of your life that may be holding you back from shining, particularly with routines that have become slack. It’s a good idea to separate business and pleasure since lines blur easily today. Aim to keep things simple as a counter-strategy, as convoluted as things seem. Promising based on current motivation levels is not a good idea since they can be up and down.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, dear Scorpio, and you may need to take some extra time for rest or reflection. Today’s transits tend to spotlight areas of your life where you need either more reality or inspiration! With a solution feeling further out of reach than usual, problems can weigh on you now. You may need some time to get to a clearer headspace. There can be temptations to jump into a new purchase or experience without considering the consequences, and it’s best to keep these tendencies at bay. If you’re experiencing a lull in motivation, it’s probably temporary, and it could be a sign you need a break or another form of refreshment. Avoid important conversations or signing on the dotted line until the fog lifts. Later today, your mind tends to wander away from the here and now, and it’s best not to overschedule or communicate impulsively.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Sagittarius, and you tend to seek light activities and experiences. Today’s Sun-Neptune square reminds you to slow down and consider your unmet needs before pushing forward. Feeling deflated momentarily can seem a nuisance now, but could also give you pause to rethink certain plans or goals in creative ways. Wishful thinking can interfere with clarity now, and it’s probably wise to reserve judgment if promises are made or things appear to be moving in a different direction. There is a tendency to complicate your life when keeping things simple would serve you better. Later today, you could feel ready to take on challenges without much in the way of further thought, but a little strategy can go a long way now. You have a real zest for action, but not necessarily a solid plan to go by.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, dear Capricorn, and you’re prepared to take care of business. While you prefer to see things realistically, a Sun-Neptune transit can blur the boundaries. In fact, it’s a strong day for free-form and behind the scenes activities, but it’s hard to lock things down. There can be uncertainty hanging around you, and leaving things open or undecided may be necessary. This transit suggests disruptions to the regular flow, but the detours you take tend to lead to new ideas and perhaps some inspiration. If motivation levels are low or you have trouble focusing, consider ways to fill your needs for more imagination, romance, or spirituality in your life. Consider that letting your guard down from time to time can help you understand yourself and your needs better. On a regular day, taming expectations is easier for you than most –you’re practical and don’t like to overshoot. Today, however, is tricky.
AquariusThe Moon’s trip through your adventure sector today finds you seeking inspiration, dear Aquarius. The Sun’s square to Neptune can have a similar effect, but it can be tricky, playing with your expectations and motivation levels. It’s best to avoid making any commitments that you might later regret, and instead, give yourself or a matter some time and space. Take things a little more slowly now so that you can tune into your intuition. If others are overstepping, you can begin to feel quite self-protective, or you may be questioning someone’s feelings for you. Either way, there is a general air of confusion, and the atmosphere is ripe for misunderstandings. Energy and confidence tend to lift up very high and then dip, much like a sugar high. As such, be moderate with promises or don’t make promises at all. Remember your limits.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Pisces, and the desire is to give something your “all.” However, motivation levels are subject to ups and downs today with the Sun square Neptune. While there can be a feeling of change and possibly excitement, there can be a lot of confusion to go along with it. The temptation to simply agree with others who seem to be seeing you less than clearly is strong but could lead to misrepresentation or problems later. Creatively speaking, you can do quite well today, as your imagination is in full swing, but you may be searching for some inspiration, which can keep you in a restless state temporarily. Aim to manage your expectations and take it as a sign that you may need to better align your dreams with your plans. Committing to something should probably wait a couple of days–you need to allow things to play out a while longer to give yourself more time to process and understand your needs.
