Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesInsecurities may get the best of you or slow you down in spots today, dear Aries. Money or income, and possibly talents, could be a sensitive issue, or it’s about whether others are showing they value and respect you. Others may not be as willing to believe in you or to follow your lead, but it’s temporary, and it’s best not to take it personally. While you might crave action, the day’s energies don’t entirely or straightforwardly support it, which can be frustrating. However, there is some easy, flowing energy in other areas, and recent ideas can begin to come together, or you see the missing links. Bright ideas may come through networking or contact with friends and associates.
TaurusMars in your sign increases your courage and grit, dear Taurus, but there are times when you need to slow down a little. Today, some sensitivity experienced with others could have you second-guessing. Something from the past might seem to undermine your confidence at the moment. The desire to put something behind you once and for all can be strong, but it may not be easy to follow through. Take the time to center yourself before getting yourself back in the game. You would be wise to deal with matters that you’ve left unfinished, and even baby steps toward so doing can help. Circumstances may be such that you need to let go of a tendency to hold on too tightly to your beliefs and customs if they’re only causing frustration. A delightful change of pace is in the air with the Moon’s move into your sign later today.
GeminiIt may be that you lack a sense of purpose or mission today, dear Gemini, which keeps you from straightforwardly pursuing your desires just for now. Confidence may be a missing factor now, but this is temporary. Past mistakes can assume more importance than they should in your mind now. Instincts may not be constructive in spots, as there is a tendency to confuse hunches with fears. While some are cooperative, you can experience touchiness today, particularly related to your social life. Tensions among friends may have a lot more to them than meets the eye. Aim to concentrate on ideas and plans that truly excite you.
CancerMinor awkward aspects suggest vague worries that might undermine confident decision-making, dear Cancer. It can be a real challenge to turn the other cheek today, however, as you can feel pulled in different directions and possibly even a little pushed around or up-and-down emotionally. You may be craving action but not quite sure where to start. Watch for falling back on old relating patterns that aren’t serving you well on your current path. If you’re feeling restricted by fear and resentment, look for ways to make improvements, even in small ways. You might enjoy a meaningful or valuable conversation that gives you more insight into others’ motivations, or you may learn of an interesting strategy for business.
LeoYou’re likely to feel a stronger pull to do something different or out of the ordinary today, dear Leo. It’s less about restlessness than simply a need to feed your spirit. Insecurities have a way of surfacing quite suddenly later today, but this may only be a delayed reaction to a recent event that you hadn’t processed until now. Doubts can arise about someone close to you. Instead of jumping to express these feelings, you might be better off trying to identify their source. The facts and your intuition may be telling you entirely different stories, making decision-making difficult. The issues that rile you up today may be a symptom of something much deeper and unresolved. While things may not be happening seamlessly, aim to focus on the benefits you’re sure about.
VirgoPeople around you tend to be cooperative, dear Virgo, or they step back to let you do your thing. You need this space right now. However, you may be feeling put upon when it comes to money or borrowed items later today or indebted to others in ways that frustrate you. If fears in relationships are eating up too much of your time and happiness, be honest with yourself and consider ways to make changes that empower you. Be discriminating about where you spend the most time mentally. You shouldn’t ignore your fears, but you should recognize the difference between considering something and dwelling on it. The former can help you, and the latter can steal time. Allow yourself some freedom to dream, imagine, and create.
LibraMessages you are receiving, whether verbal or not, tend to be conflicting in spots today, dear Libra. Do your part by identifying weaknesses or vulnerabilities that need attention, but avoid pushing yourself too hard to please others. Cooperation is one thing, but if others aren’t meeting you halfway, it’s no longer healthy. Efforts to prove yourself won’t help gain appreciation and may only lead to resentment right now. You can be feeling passionate about something and perhaps craving action and progress, but if things are a little stuck, try not to fret. Bigger-thinking skills improve today, however, and focusing on learning and growing can be most rewarding.
ScorpioThere can be original thinking about a home, personal, or family-related matter, dear Scorpio, and ideas can come to you for improving your comfort levels or feeling of security. Circumstances may not seem to support your plans, or plans may not come together as you’d like today and tomorrow. As frustrating as this may be, there are distinct opportunities to enjoy yourself. The trick is to redirect yourself promptly after a disappointment! Still, you might want to acknowledge your feelings even if you’re not acting upon them until you’re entirely behind them. You are more sensitive than usual to any situation in which power is glaringly imbalanced today.
SagittariusLife is not straightforward today and tomorrow, dear Sagittarius, particularly on the job, with children, family, or a love interest. People around you can be especially defensive and perhaps too quick to jump to negative conclusions in spots today. While conflicts can erupt seemingly out of nowhere and can be confusing or overwhelming, they can also lead to deeper bonding if handled well. It could be better to save important decision making for a time when you’re more impartial. Working on a solution is one thing, and dwelling on a problem is another. Try to stay open and flexible. There can be some distinct opportunities to cooperate. Designing something worthwhile and creative can be in focus and can be very satisfying.
CapricornEnergy is stop-and-go today and tomorrow, dear Capricorn, but you can make it work for you with some extra effort. If you’re especially distractable, it could mean you’re not truly decided on what you want to get done. Relationships with love interests or family can be a bit rocky. Buried anger or resentment can surface in unpolished ways and feel a bit messy, although it may lead to a greater understanding. Resolve to make changes and to grow with and through them. It may be best to avoid taking a risk or going out on a limb, as hunches may not be accurate temporarily. You can be feeling a little possessive or want to do things your way, which could create some waves. Focusing on ideas and plans can be fruitful, however.
AquariusIt may not be easy getting what you want straightforwardly or directly at times today, dear Aquarius. There could also be tension with family or with unresolved issues that are hanging heavy in the air. There can be frustration with disturbances and interruptions, and you’re not in the mood to interpret the double meanings in conversations. Most importantly, even if you’re dwelling a little too much on problems, it’s probably best not to let resentment drive your behavior, which can result in costly mistakes. The day can be far more satisfying if you aim to be adaptable and flexible. You might focus on a solvable problem in the mental or mechanical world to release energy constructively. The day may not have a clear mission, but it may not need one.
PiscesYou might crave action or change today, dear Pisces, but it’s not easy to know where to pour your energies. A game plan or mission seems to be missing temporarily, but it may get you to slow down and pace yourself to your benefit. You can feel a little out of step, or you may be tiptoeing around others. People can be touchy, sensitive, defensive, or disinclined to accept help or others’ input. There can be a feeling that you and the people around you are moving in different directions or talking about different things entirely. It shouldn’t be a game-changer if your feelings and beliefs aren’t currently harmonizing. Timing can be off, but this gives you the chance to build self-reliance. Better activities for you right now are simple, earthy ones.
