Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon encourages your curiosity and your need for variety, dear Aries. Mercury has been retrograde for three weeks, and that cycle is coming to an end as Mercury turns direct. Remember, however, that communications can remain confusing as Mercury changes direction, and perhaps even more so. Avoid important conversations or sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating, and in some cases, wholly unnecessary. However, you’ll be seeing some forward movement in those relationships and endeavors that have recently suffered from delays or blocks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness will clear in the days ahead. Mercury’s forward turn in your social sector promises more clarity and understanding with friends, but for now, be especially attentive to details.
TaurusMercury comes to the end of its three-week retrograde period today, dear Taurus, and over the coming days, you can experience more clarity with long-term, career, or life-plan goals, as well as with your romantic life. While this means an imminent clearing of obstacles and delays, the day itself can be somewhat confusing until you get your bearings. In the days ahead, however, projects might unblock, and delays lift. You might see work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, parents, or managers. For now, however, while the shift occurs, we can be unusually error-prone. Avoid situations where you’re vulnerable to misrepresenting yourself, and if you can’t, aim to be precise. Otherwise, the day is good for relaxing, comforting activities. Keep things simple for the best results. Take your time!
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Gemini, bringing hidden feelings to the surface. Your mood is good, and your mindset is positive, even though there can be some small annoyances to deal with today. While communication or transportation breakdowns may have been more frequent in the past few weeks, many of these problems will begin to clear up over the coming days. Mercury ends its three-week retrograde phase today, and there can be a sense of moving forward. For now, correcting mistakes and omissions will help clear the path. Be a little more mindful of communications, as misunderstandings are likely with Mercury at its station. This is a good time for studying and reflecting, while brand new endeavors should wait. A turnaround for some of your projects, particularly related to education, publishing, and legal matters, is imminent.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Cancer, encouraging you to take things easy and keep a low profile. With Mercury’s station today, it comes at a good time–an emotional recharge or taking a light schedule can be ideal now. Mercury’s direct motion helps financial and intimate matters gain clarity or move forward in the days ahead. It can help clear recent blocks and slowdowns. It might help fill in the blanks on some issues, which leads to better choices and decisions. Today, be more mindful of directions and communications as this shift occurs and you’re still acclimatizing to it. There is such a thing as too much information, and when Mercury stations as it does today, it might lead to errors if we push decision-making.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of dreams, wishes, and friendship, dear Leo, encouraging you to seek like-minded people or friends who accept you for who you are. Relationships tend to fare well, particularly with patience. Still, you may want to keep things open today. Mercury ends its retrograde cycle, and over the coming days and weeks, you’ll gain more clarity in certain areas of your life, particularly regarding relationships. Money or ownership matters may also clarify. Be patient as recent problems begin to unravel in the coming days. You might get the news you were waiting for. Communicating with partners, and getting a clear understanding of where a partner stands, should be more comfortable going forward, slowly but surely. Misunderstandings are still possible today, so take things slowly. Don’t jump too quickly into action or sign on the dotted line just yet! Instead, allow new information to trickle in while taking your time.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of reputation, status, and career, dear Virgo, and you quite readily take the lead, preferring to get your responsibilities out of the way. You might find yourself in the position to make the decisions, but Mercury’s station today can confuse matters a little. Today’s energies can be frustrating if you’re attempting to push forward plans, mainly related to work or health, but there are indicators that things are unblocking. The key is to be patient a little while longer. Mercury turns direct after three weeks of retrograde motion, and routine matters tend to iron or smooth out. Information comes in that helps you make stronger choices and decisions. More clarity is on its way. Not all information is available to you at the moment, but some of the excess “traffic” is clearing now, and it feels good. Still, consider that we’re in a transition period, and save your energy and decisions for later.
LibraMercury turns direct today after three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Libra. While this shift can produce a bit of chaos, it eventually brings improved communications and more clarity to your romantic or creative life. Indecision tends to clear up, and disjointed ideas and projects come together. You might return to previous conversations that were confusing or getting nowhere, now with increased clarity. Further information emerges, and this releases energy to flow forward. You may be reconsidering a goal or dealing with something that you overlooked so that you can clear the path for moving on. With the shift occurring today, some confusion remains. It’s best not to focus superficially on what is or isn’t said and instead aim to draw on patience as problems clear. You might also avoid reacting too quickly to communications.
ScorpioThe end of Mercury’s retrograde phase today can point to improved communications with a partner and family in the coming days and weeks, dear Scorpio. While you’re unlikely to see immediate results today, you can look forward to more clarity in your relationships soon. Mercury’s change of direction means less indecision as we advance–you’ll find life a little easier to navigate as projects or appointments begin to move forward and motivation increases. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Keep things simple for best results, and take your time! It would be appropriate to conserve energy now, and it’s best not to rush to put new initiatives into motion.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and your relationships are strong on your mind, dear Sagittarius. Mercury ends its three-week retrograde phase today. It’s good news, but it’s a shift of direction and can be mildly disorienting as a result. While it’s best not to jump into action, new launches, or major decisions just yet, you’ll enjoy some forward motion on delayed projects shortly. Further information can come in that aids decision-making. Over the coming days, plans or projects that have recently stalled or fell off the radar gain traction. Some may no longer seem viable. Aim to attend to duties that will help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress.
CapricornThe Moon transits your work and health sector all day, and you’re likely to feel emotionally satisfied once you’ve handled your duties, dear Capricorn. Mercury stations and turns direct today, pointing to a sense of relief as more clarity is around the corner. Still, there can be a bit of chaos or some misunderstandings today as the shift occurs. In the days ahead, clearer communications are likely, information comes through, or previously delayed initiatives move forward. With Mercury’s current transit of your solar second house, this can be about money, personal possessions, or business. You’ll feel better equipped to move your plans ahead and make informed decisions.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, encouraging you to share your happy feelings, dear Aquarius. There can be some confusion or misunderstood communications today as Mercury changes direction. However, it’s the end of Mercury’s retrograde, which can help release blocks or delays. The shift itself can be on the confusing side, so take your time. In the coming days, you’ll benefit from a more straightforward approach to life. Today, take extra care when communicating and avoid focusing on the superficial elements of conversations, situations, and systems. For best results, ease into moving your plans ahead.
PiscesMercury stations direct today, ending its retrograde cycle, dear Pisces, and you’ll have many opportunities to improve conditions as we advance. With today’s shift, it may be wise to choose your words wisely. Today is not ideal for entirely new projects and endeavors, but you’ll see forward movement on delayed projects in the coming days. Delays lift or word comes through that helps you make decisions and ends a state of limbo. Behind-the-scenes matters tend to go particularly well for you right now, and you may begin to see a grand design behind recent events in your life.
