Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesDeeper, hidden subjects and topics come to the surface today, dear Aries. You can get into stronger touch with your inner needs and motives and those of others. Even so, there is a tendency for mixed signals or communications early today. With motivation levels dipping temporarily, it can take longer to get through your duties. However, there can be some nice bonding or inner acceptance and comfort as the day advances. The emphasis today is on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world. You can feel a stronger need to channel your energies into something meaningful or productive. You may want to keep some of your ideas and plans under wraps for the time being. In fact, you may very well enjoy having a private mission or plan.
TaurusToday and tomorrow, your focus is more relationship-oriented, dear Taurus. It’s the time of the lunar cycle in which others in your life tend to take center stage, and it makes sense to allow this to happen. You might ease off your personal plans just for the moment, taking more time to understand the role of a significant relationship in your life or considering your approach to others more thoughtfully. A Mercury-Neptune transit early today can point to some indecision or lack of clarity. This may be irritating but could also redirect your thinking in positive ways. As the day advances, your idealism comes into fuller prominence. Someone could inspire or motivate you to pursue your desires.
GeminiYou’re growing less concerned with the panoramic view of your life and more interested in the parts that make up the whole today, dear Gemini. This detail-oriented energy helps you handle matters that need more attention and tie up loose ends. Early today, however, a Mercury-Neptune transit can point to some cloudy thinking or unclear directions. Bringing more imagination to what you do can be helpful. It’s a time to seek a little more inspiration or meaning. You could find that previously hidden or elusive information is now emerging bit by bit, but the whole story isn’t with you today. It’s best not to draw hard conclusions.
CancerWhile there can be some cloudy thinking early today, dear Cancer, you could find yourself in a naturally optimistic frame of mind. Affection is easier to express with the Moon moving into your solar fifth house for a couple of days. You’re in the mood to share the happiness. It could be a fine time to pour your heart into a special or creative project. You might find inspiration in what others say or from things you hear. While it’s not an ideal time for signing contracts or engaging in work that requires attention to facts and figures, it’s a strong day for creative expression. It may take longer to arrive at an answer, but the results will be so much better if you take your time. You might be too distracted to make progress in any one particular subject, but free form suits you the best at the moment.
LeoToday and tomorrow, you’re more likely to stick with familiar and safe circumstances, dear Leo. You’re in need of emotional replenishment. You’re less inclined to willingly plunk yourself into new settings and situations. At this time of the lunar month, attending to your needs for security and familiarity will help prepare you for more expressive and sociable periods to come. Today’s energies generally favor domestic affairs. There is a rather secretive, withdrawn, and self-protective energy to the day. You may feel more vulnerable, and you might find great strength from getting in better touch with your inner world. Aiming to work from the inside out to center yourself and find a balance makes sense.
VirgoYou’re becoming more communicative and curious today, dear Virgo, with the Moon’s move into your solar third house for a couple of days. You’re keenly aware of how your communications are being received, and you tend to adjust accordingly, helping endear you to others. Nevertheless, there can be some confusion or incomplete information to manage in the first half of the day. A Mercury-Neptune minor challenging aspect can stir up idealistic yearnings, particularly when it comes to close relationships, so it would be wise to be sure of your perceptions before banking on them. As the day advances, transits are smoother for connecting and mixing up your routine a little.
LibraThe Moon leaves your sign and heads into your solar second house for a stay of over two days, dear Libra, bringing you down to earth. Your focus is less emotional, and your needs less urgent, allowing you to concentrate more effectively on practical matters. While the morning’s transits can feel a little murky, it makes sense to aim to simplify your life in small ways. You are inclined to overindulge if you don’t recognize the reasons for inner unrest. As the day advances, your single-minded focus can take you places. Family or the desire to improve home life can be at the heart of these feelings and goals.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your sign for a visit of over two days, dear Scorpio, putting you in a more natural, positive frame of mind. However, you might also experience a rush of emotions as they’re reawakened, which can initially overwhelm you. Feelings are strongly sentimental, and whatever you do today, it’s colorful and tinged with emotionality. There is real creative flair to most things you take on now, and it’s a strong day for the arts, especially photography, music, drama, poetry, and any artistic field that appeals strongly to the emotions. In the first half of the day, it’s not a good time to lock things down as you may see things as you imagine them to be. While you’re in the mood to take charge and take action, it may be better to wait and see. It’s temporary.
SagittariusThe Moon enters your privacy and soul sector today, dear Sagittarius, stirring the need or desire for some level of anonymity or withdrawal for a couple of days. It’s a great time to take a step back in some manner so that you can recharge yourself emotionally. Circumstances may be such that you are better off functioning behind the scenes just for now. There could be some feelings of disconnectedness or discontent, but these things can prompt you to think about what you’d like to change. On the other hand, you have tremendous insight and experience to share. It’s a fine day for focusing on inner resources and family or personal matters.
CapricornThere is a tendency to overthink instead of listening to your gut early today, dear Capricorn, and it may be better to wait and see. There is also some tendency to say something that doesn’t reflect what you truly mean. Turn this energy around by helping out a friend or acquaintance, which can give you a real boost. The Moon moves into your social sector for over two days, and the practical elements of your life tend to take the backseat. There is a natural need to detach yourself temporarily from people and situations that have you feeling under pressure. You attract pleasant attention. While this is not the best time for finalizing things, it is a strong day overall for imagination and creativity.
AquariusThere can be some confusing elements to manage in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, when wishful thinking dominates. People and perceptions are not very straightforward temporarily, and motivation levels can plummet as a result. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, where it will transit for over two days. With this transit, you’re more aware of your responsibilities and the place you hold in the world around you. This increased awareness can lead to improvements, reminding you of your goals and priorities. As the day advances, you might tap into powerful energy for dedication to a special project or for putting some imagination and heart into a business or idea.
PiscesWith the Sun in your sign, it’s a good time to strengthen your drive, build your confidence, and improve the impression you make, dear Pisces. In the first half of today, a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge can suggest some indecision or fuzzy thinking. It may very well be a sign that you need to redirect or reorient yourself, and a wait-and-see approach is probably warranted. While it can be challenging to get your message across early today, the lines of communication open wider as the day advances, although not entirely clearly. You’re feeling more connected to the people around you and to the things you do. Others might seek you out and feel especially comfortable in your presence.
