Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in great shape for connecting with people who are supportive and helpful these days, dear Aries. You’ll find that diplomacy takes you far, and mutually beneficial relationships are in focus. Artistic and romantic endeavors are favored. You attract and draw in people with progressive ideas and attitudes right now. Friend or group connections and networking can be empowering now. You are likely to enjoy happier moods, bigger thinking, and opportunities to expand your reach today. A friend can provide you with a sounding board or simply a bit of feedback that helps you come to important conclusions.
TaurusTaking care of your business, money, and valuables has been in focus, dear Taurus. While that continues today to some degree, you’re also in the position to unwind. Connections with people related to business, government, and banks can be especially beneficial. You might bond with someone over shared basic values or business ideas. The Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, and some extra rest or a reprieve from recent demands or competitive life situations would be ideal. Life can sometimes move quickly, and our minds absorb much, and this Moon transit helps you catch up on an emotional level by processing and digesting recent events and feelings. Look for ways to understand yourself better and to connect with your spiritual needs. While you are inclined to withdraw, and it’s good for you, there can be an advantage gained in business today, particularly through friendliness.
GeminiIt’s a generally strong time for pursuing goals that contribute to a sense of growth and feelings of productivity, dear Gemini. Happy connections with others can figure strongly. It may be that someone encourages your independence and self-confidence, or that you help guide someone, and it’s rewarding. Your outlook is positive and productive. It’s a fine time for enjoying friendships, sharing, projects, and learning. You’ll be making more time for personal goals and causes. You’re naturally drawing success and resources to you, and you get a real feeling that you are making progress in key areas of your life. Emotionally, you can be feeling renewed.

Instead, you feel connected and content about your general direction. Others’ talents or resources can be beneficial to you now. Thoughtful planning is highly favored.

ScorpioThere is a strong focus on your inner world, intimate relationships, and connections with family today, dear Scorpio. People closest to you seem to be your biggest supporters right now, or you might make helpful connections with others related to finances, real estate, home initiatives, family, and intimacy. Emotional bonds can strengthen–it can feel good to get in touch with fears and insecurities. You’ll find that others tend to cooperate more than usual today. Putting in the effort towards something productive, however big or small, can be satisfying with the Moon in your solar sixth house of habits and routines all day.
