Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon transits boost your social life, dear Aries. Cooperative energy is with you with others. Even so, there is also some intensity to the day and some pressure to come to a decision. Powerful insight into a career matter or forward movement on a significant project can happen now as Mercury and Pluto come together at the top of your solar chart. Fears and worries may prompt you to rework or strengthen a weak area in your life. If you’re worried about your reputation or career path, this is a good time to work hard at making fixes. It’s also a fine time to pare things down so you can perform better. You are communicating with intensity now, but remember that what you say today may stick with you for longer than you expect. Avoid tense power plays. Today’s energies are mighty for solving problems–there is a lot of power available to you in the form of mental focus and determination.
TaurusToday’s transits are generally good for cooperating, connecting, and enjoying a sense of gentle progress, dear Taurus. Still, a Mercury-Pluto transit, while helpful, is far from light. It tends towards a one-track mind–either dwelling on a problem or opinion or determinedly following a personal interest and investigating a matter more fully. You can feel quite fired up about an idea or topic with this transit occurring in your solar ninth house. A pursuit or idea can get the adrenaline pumping! Watch for the tendency for an exchange of ideas to turn into a frustrating power game. While you should avoid trying to “convert” someone to your line of thinking, you should take advantage of your spirited, passionate frame of mind by applying it to something constructive and worthy of your attention. As you pursue your interests heartily, others are more likely to see your perspective, given a bit of time. It can be a time for new insight into your beliefs or educational plans.
GeminiYour thoughts run deep today, dear Gemini. Not only is Mercury transiting your sector of hidden and intimate matters, but Mercury also aligns with intense Pluto today, revealing new layers to a situation. You can be investigating, detecting, or uncovering information. It can be an excellent time for research, although there’s a small risk you take it too far. It’s best to nurture your desire to get to the bottom of a matter only to the point that it serves you well. Conversations and thoughts need not go to negative places to find answers. What’s most important now is that you learn more about yourself and your desires and feelings to make better decisions. In fact, the day holds much promise for discovery and insight. The Moon’s light, airy support helps you find a balance.
CancerThe Moon’s transits bring a rewarding inner focus for you, dear Cancer. There can also be more mental intensity or focus today due to a Mercury-Pluto alignment. You could find your thoughts frequently turn to a relationship matter, or someone wants your undivided attention. Whether or not you wish to “go there” in a conversation, it may move in that direction! You might consider approaching an uncomfortable topic if it needs airing, but do keep in mind that there is a strong tendency today for people to take things more seriously than usual. Ideally, there can be stimulating interactions with a significant person in your life, or you reach an epiphany and greater understanding of your relationship needs. You may better grasp someone’s viewpoint, which can be educational.
LeoWhile today’s Moon transits encourage a lighter focus, dear Leo, Mercury and Pluto align today, increasing the mental intensity. You can experience a stronger desire and drive to be efficient, tending to wrap your mind around problems and work through mental challenges. This alignment occurs in your work and health sector, stirring your determination to succeed in a project or endeavor. Researching a health or healing method can be rewarding. Watch for a tendency to be overbearing, and be kind to yourself by knowing when to let go of a matter. Facing a truth, even an uncomfortable one, can motivate you to improve, firm up, and get a handle on important areas of your life, leaving you less vulnerable to worry or problems down the road. Aim to embrace your ambitions if they inspire and motivate you, but avoid putting excessive pressure on yourself.
VirgoToday’s Mercury-Pluto alignment brings intensity to your day, dear Virgo, particularly on a mental level. You can become quite engrossed in a matter that seems to beg for resolution or further investigation related to a creative project, child, or romantic relationship. A meaningful conversation, discovery, or big reveal can occur now. There is a dramatic and competitive touch to everything you do today. Aim to use intense emotions and compulsions constructively through art or intimacy. Looking to find out the truth about a matter can work in your favor if you do so with moderation. Pushing your natural boundaries with thinking, connecting, and creating can be valuable. Knowing when to stop will help you regain control and get back on track.
LibraToday’s transits are strong for cooperation and even enlightenment through your interactions, dear Libra. Even so, Mercury and Pluto come together today, adding intensity and focus. Important conversations can revolve around personal matters, family, or home life. With this transit active, as much as you want answers, try not to push things too far, and don’t allow others to push your buttons. Channeling extra energy into making plans or organizing the home and possibly family activities can be successful. Or, you could find that your mind frequently turns to a matter from the past and an unresolved problem, and you’re seeking a resolution. The issue is that you could become so focused on one idea that you miss the vital point. It follows that you should probably watch for taking a line of thought or conversation too far. Otherwise, it’s a good time to investigate or see the hidden layers of a situation. As the day advances, you gain some perspective. In fact, you can thoroughly enjoy looking at the bigger picture and coming up with satisfying plans.
ScorpioToday’s Mercury-Pluto alignment supports deeper thinking or analysis, dear Scorpio, while happy connections can also figure strongly. A complicated matter can emerge that requires your complete attention, or your mind may latch onto a dilemma or problem, and it can be challenging to pull yourself out. Watch for taking a line of thought too far if it interferes with your priorities or good mood. Use your natural smarts to keep communications healthy. It can be a powerful day for influencing others through your ideas and communications, and there can be breakthrough insights now. Your insight into a matter can be indispensable to someone, and conversations tend to be heavier and more penetrating than usual.
SagittariusToday’s Mercury-Pluto transit inclines you to more profound thought, dear Sagittarius. You can experience a strong drive to understand something. A topic or line of thinking can keep you alert and eager, and conversations can be insightful and weighty. With this transit, you could feel slightly paranoid, worried, or simply focused–mental intensity increases. It’s best to use it to firm up your spending or identify flaws so that you can fix them. Resolving a financial issue can be in the cards. However, aim to take some time away from a problem if it’s draining or distracting you from your priorities.
CapricornTake advantage of an opportunity to bring a new perspective to a problem today, dear Capricorn. With Mercury and Pluto aligning in your sign, you could be the topic of discussion, or your words are in stronger influence. You might pursue an answer or truth and eloquently state your case. Conversations could trigger deeper issues, and someone could take comments the wrong way. You can be contemplative, which can intimidate some. However, challenges today seem to light a fire under you to make improvements. You might gain new insight into your personality, personal plans, or health. You’re not afraid to take the bad with the good, helping you see much more than usual.
AquariusYou can be very preoccupied today, dear Aquarius. With Mercury and Pluto aligned in your solar twelfth house, much is going on in your private life or inner world. It can be a time of intense thoughts, a mystery to solve, or an old problem that begs resolution. You can get some valuable insight into a complicated matter or a new understanding of a significant event from the past, changing your mental direction in the future. While you should watch for becoming overly focused on something to the point of distraction from priorities, it should be an excellent time to get to the bottom of a situation. Recognize when contemplation becomes overthinking, as the former helps you out, and the latter can take you further away from a solution. Today’s Moon supports you, lifting your mood and spirits.
PiscesToday’s Mercury-Pluto alignment brings mental intensity, dear Pisces. It can be an excellent time to tackle a problem with new understanding and insight since you can see more layers to a situation. You might see to the very heart of an issue. Discussions and ideas emerging now can help create turning points. A happiness goal or friendship matter can be in stronger focus. Be sure to avoid getting stuck with old habits and methods, instead aiming to push just enough to get to a new level of understanding. Keep in mind that there is a tendency to make mountains out of molehills today, and avoid going too far with a line of thinking if it’s fear-based. Ideally, conversations with friends and networking activities offer meaningful learning experiences.
