Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere is good energy for getting places in your conversations, dear Aries. You’re getting your message across warmly and personably. There can be some tendency to take on a little too much today, but as the day pushes forward, it’s easy to go with the flow and enjoy yourself as you do. Ideally, the tension you feel today can encourage you to pull out the motivation to make improvements. Consider that getting in touch with your deeper needs and wants is essential, and devoting some time to observing and planning now makes sense.
TaurusFor much of the day, the Moon spotlights your need for companionship, feedback, or a different perspective on a situation, dear Taurus. In the first half of the day, you can feel divided between responsibility and leisure. Being emotionally present with different needs and drives competing for your attention can be challenging. While your needs for reassurance and your ambitions seem to be at cross-purposes, tensions stirring now can motivate important changes. If you need to look at a problem from a different perspective, today is strong for it, especially as the day advances. You see options where there didn’t seem to be any in the past, particularly related to your larger goals, career, work, health, and money matters.
GeminiThe Moon spends much of the day in your work and health sector, dear Gemini, encouraging special attention to your everyday affairs. In the first half of the day, there can be some tension fitting in everything you want to do. You’re especially in need of mental refreshment these days, and it makes sense to find ways to compromise and arrive at a balance between your interests and duties. Still, prioritizing chores may be your best bet today so that you can enjoy yourself more fully later. Especially as the day advances, good energy is with you for rearranging and redesigning your projects, plans, or personal environment. The Moon moves into opposition with your sign later today, positioning you well to enjoy a new perspective on your life, whether this happens naturally or through the eyes of someone close to you.
CancerToday’s Moon transit of your sector of joy much of the day reminds you of the need for light entertainment and fun, dear Cancer. You need that extra spark right now, even if it’s pulling you off course temporarily. Today’s Quarter Moon can create some tension, but it’s the kind of stress that can motivate you to make changes that benefit you. Making some room for spontaneous play and discovery can refresh you. The Moon moves into your work and health sector later today, which is good for clearing up various chores and tasks. You’re inclined to want to straighten things out and take care of details. You can also do some good thinking about your projects now.
LeoToday’s Moon continues to encourage you to slow down for much of the day, dear Leo. You tend to make time for comfortable, familiar, or quiet activities, and you’re more reflective than usual. Still, you’re in a larger, more interactive and connected cycle, and the Sun-Moon clash in the first half of the day emphasizes this contrast. Sharing activities that help you regroup can be a practical compromise. Or, you may need to center yourself and get comfortable just for a while before sharing yourself more freely and happily with others. Conversations, musings, or studies are likely to be rewarding and inspiring, especially later today.
VirgoThe Moon spends much of the day continuing its transit of your communications sector, dear Virgo, stirring your need for variety. It’s a day for diversifying, pursuing your interests, and following your curiosity. Still, you’re in a larger cycle that pushes your work, duties, health, and wellness, and today’s Quarter Moon emphasizes the contrast of these drives. Trying to do it all can be too stressful, so a compromise makes sense. If you can avoid taking on too much, there is good energy for opening the lines of communication. You can enjoy helpful, friendly conversations. This can also be a fertile time for money, business, work, or health ideas and methods.
LibraWith the Moon continuing its transit of your solar second house for much of the day, dear Libra, you crave more comfort and predictability. Slowing down and centering yourself can be helpful. With the Sun’s current transit of your pleasure sector encouraging you to share and express yourself, there can be a bit of an internal struggle in the first half of the day. You can feel divided between wanting to try new things and preferring to stick with what’s most secure. Aim to strike a compromise. As the day advances, a good feeling of your priorities and a practical focus seem to work best for you. Today can also bring an outstanding teaching or learning moment. Others appreciate you for your unique insight.
ScorpioYou seek to set the pace and let your emotions lead you today, dear Scorpio, but with the Moon’s square to the Sun influencing the first half of the day, you may do battle with competing drives. Integrating your need for independence with your powerful desire to stick with what’s most familiar and safe can be challenging. Still, there are other ways to express yourself today, and loving feelings are easy to tap. Conversations about emotional or personal matters can be most rewarding. There can be a supportive conversation or some advice that works well for you.
SagittariusFor much of the day, the Moon continues its transit of your privacy sector, dear Sagittarius, inclining you to keep some things to yourself and process feelings more than express them. The Moon’s square to the Sun influencing the first half of the day suggests some feelings of being divided. The Sun’s current mission in your solar chart is to encourage you to do more sharing, connecting, and collaborating. Consider that you’ll bring your best to these things if you catch up on the inside. Tackle areas of guilt that may prevent you from getting the break you need and deserve. You may need a healthy escape. The Moon moves into your sign later today, and you’re ready to start fresh. There can be supportive teaching or learning moments. Sharing ideas and developing rich new ideas can be rewarding.
CapricornYou’re in solid shape for drawing up plans or budgets, dear Capricorn, and your mind is fertile and resourceful. Still, you can experience some frustration in the first half of the day. Your desire to enjoy new things and experiment or diversify continues strong, but integrating it with your increased need for predictability these days can be challenging. Fortunately, from this minor inner struggle, you can feel more motivated to make meaningful changes and improve your life. You may feel torn between settling into a comfortable pace and seeking newness and movement, making it best to reach a compromise. Later today, the Moon heads into your privacy sector for a couple of days, signaling a need to rest, reflect, and restore.
AquariusWith the Moon’s square to the Sun in your sign today, dear Aquarius, your ambitions seem to clash with your desire to be a free spirit. It may be that you need to do a bit of compromising, as some rules need your attention, but you also need to go your own way. Additionally, Quarter Moons, such as the one today, can be motivating, producing just enough stress or tension to get you to make valuable changes and improvements. Consider this a helpful checkpoint. Especially as the day advances, you’re in good shape to pursue a personal interest. You’re getting your message across well and personably, or the pieces of a puzzle might come together on a mental level. You might find natural outlets for communicating your ideas and expressing yourself.
PiscesNew settings or surroundings can be in order, dear Pisces, and most refreshing today. Still, the Moon’s square to the Sun in your privacy sector can pull up some blocks. The Sun has encouraged you to process, digest, and take things easy. While this continues to be a central overarching theme at this time of the year, you require something a little different today, such as a step out of your comfort zone, to feel vital. A compromise seems your best bet. Second-guessing a situation or decision is possible now, but this may help you pace yourself. Otherwise, you’re in particularly good shape for work behind the scenes, research, or conversations about private matters that feel natural and lead to healing. A comfortable pace is particularly appealing as the day advances.
