Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury moves into your solar eleventh house today, dear Aries, and will visit until March 2nd. This is a time when conversations with friends and various networking activities increase and offer learning experiences. Your ideas are especially progressive and unconventional during this cycle–you’re questioning the rules you typically live by and stretching your mind. Not all of these ideas will necessarily last or lead to new projects, but it’s a time of dreaming up new possibilities and possible solutions to problems. The process can be exciting! You are especially interested in spending time with like-minded people. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle. You are especially concerned about being happy, enjoying yourself, and connecting with people who accept you as you are. Today, ideas, media, and special-interest projects and activities can help you heal.
TaurusMercury moves into your sector of career and reputation today, dear Taurus, and will visit this area of your solar chart until March 2nd. The period ahead is for communicating with more impact and thinking up long-term strategies that will move you closer to your goals. Your thoughts and conversations more frequently revolve around your responsibilities during this cycle. You’re applying the knowledge and skills you’ve gained in the previous cycle, and you could be in the position to speak, lead, and advise more than usual. Your inner courage is strong today, and you tend to prove your value with positive actions. You can make excellent progress with a business or money idea.
GeminiMercury moves into harmony with your sign for its transit of your solar ninth house until March 2nd, dear Gemini. It’s particularly refreshing because your planetary ruler is Mercury, and its position in your solar chart affects you more than most. You have an easier time expressing yourself and getting your ideas across smoothly during this cycle. You enjoy positivity in your outlook, thoughts, and conversations. Because you’re tired of old routines and information, you more readily embrace new ways of looking at problems. You seek out new horizons on mental levels, and you might discover new and exciting interests in the weeks ahead. Today, you want to make positive steps toward a goal or improve your life. You’re more inclined to enjoy the moment.
CancerMercury begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Cancer, and you gravitate to deeper thought, study, thinking, and conversations. This cycle lasts until March 2nd, and it stirs a desire for life’s mysteries to intrigue you. It’s a good time to strategize, plan, dig deep, research, and investigate. It may not be an ideal period for straightforward communications and transportation, however. Nevertheless, you bring more reason and objectivity to sensitive issues and are especially interested in meaning and context. Conversations can be more intimate, or the topics on the table are not your regular fare. Thinking about shared resources and finances, or negotiations involving them, could also figure now. Today, you’re in particularly good shape for taking action on long-overdue matters and feeling better for doing so.
LeoMercury begins transiting your opposite sign today, dear Leo, where it will visit until March 2nd. Intellectual companionship is a theme in the cycle ahead. You seek or attract people who help stimulate your thoughts and decisions–for company, feedback, and sounding boards. A partner or friend’s input revs up your thinking, stirring up ideas. Conversations can be fascinating, and ideas generated through these back-and-forths can be beneficial. There can be times when unsolicited advice from others can seem like meddling. However, you often benefit from the feedback you receive during this cycle, and you could find that others have something important to say or they help get you thinking in especially meaningful ways. Today, you’re motivated to take positive action. You’d rather do something about a problem than simply think or talk about it.
VirgoMercury begins its transit of your work and health sector, where it will visit until March 2nd, dear Virgo. With your planetary ruler in the area of your solar chart strongly associated with your sign, you can feel in your element. It’s a time to focus on the details of your life, although you might also fret about them occasionally. Your thoughts and conversations often turn to work, health, and functional matters. It’s a decent time to learn new skills, particularly practical ones, and seek information that helps you improve your routines. Today, you can feel a stronger sense of purpose and a building desire to get things done. You have stronger conviction, and something you had trouble expressing or deciding upon in recent weeks now flows out of you effortlessly.
LibraMercury begins its transit of your sector of entertainment, joy, and pleasure today, dear Libra. This brings Mercury into harmony with your sign after spending a lot of time tucked away in your home sector, and it can feel quite liberating as you become far less guarded. You find it more comfortable and natural to express your ideas and opinions during this cycle that lasts until March 2nd. You’re more communicative and friendly, and you’re inclined to seek out intellectual entertainment. There can be a more vital need for communication and movement in a romantic relationship. Your thinking is more creative than usual. You tend to entertain or charm others with your words. Today’s transits support a sense of purpose through a relationship or connection. A person’s good opinion of you may spur you on to make more improvements.
ScorpioMercury moves into your solar fourth house today, dear Scorpio. During this cycle, your thoughts more often revolve around personal matters, especially family, home, and domestic issues. You enjoy, more than usual, discussions and stories about the past and family. It can be a constructive time to open up conversations within your personal circle, but perhaps a somewhat insular cycle otherwise. There can be increased activities in and around the home. You might also come up with great longer-term plans and strategies for your life, especially regarding security and comfort matters. Today, you’re in good shape to get back into the swing of things with your work or wellness routines.
SagittariusMercury has just completed a longer-than-usual transit of your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and enters your communications sector today. This cycle lasts until March 2nd, and it positions you well to gain some mental clarity and variety. It encourages reaching out, connecting, picking up new interests and skills, and sharing ideas. Learning, guiding, studying, and conversations flow naturally. There can also be a lot of activity and many distractions at this time! Occasionally, you can feel a little wired or stressed. However, if you manage to keep your wits about you and avoid mental strain or stress, you’re likely to enjoy the new information coming in and the connections you’re bound to make. Today, relationships are lively. Someone might motivate you to take a positive step.
CapricornMercury exits your sign and moves into your resources sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will visit until March 2nd. It’s an especially helpful transit for your practical affairs. You might often be preoccupied with business, finances, personal possessions, valuables, and matters of security during this cycle. You seek tangible results from your efforts and take a patient approach to your work. It’s a good time to discuss, learn about, and seek advice on your financial situation. You’re also picking up useful, practical information, mainly because this is the information you desire most. You are more realistic and rational in your approach to spending, saving, and making money. Today, it’s more natural than usual to make connections with others that boost your spirits and confidence. Reducing mental stress is easier today through activities.
AquariusMercury moves into your sign today, dear Aquarius, and it will visit until March 2nd. Your personal plans and decision-making are sharper in the weeks ahead. It’s a cycle in which you tend to communicate more readily, and your demeanor is light-hearted and curious. It’s a good time of the year to use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself. You didn’t quite lose your voice while Mercury spent an unusual amount of time in your privacy sector (since December 6th) but, in some ways, you may have had less opportunity or desire to speak about yourself or your plans. You are making more executive decisions during this cycle, and your words have more impact. Today is strong for taking action or moving something forward.
PiscesToday and until March 2nd, Mercury transits your privacy sector, dear Pisces. Your decision-making skills and thought processes are even more intuitive than usual in the weeks ahead. You’re processing recent experiences and reasoning your way through issues you’ve left unfinished or pushed to the side. A significant project may come to completion during this transit. You arrive at a greater understanding of your life, and you might help others with words of advice and wisdom. You’re looking at the past from a new perspective and paying more attention to your private life. You may take more time when coming to conclusions and making decisions during this period. Today, however, you’re not as inclined to overthink, favoring action or activity, especially with money and home matters.
