Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith some reflection, you could arrive at a better understanding of where you’re heading today, dear Aries. You may want to make nice with others, particularly parents, bosses, or associates. You could be sensing and intuiting the right moves. Emphasizing the non-material elements of a project can be a good idea now. There is a relatively strong focus on your mental world later today, but it can feel a bit scattered or chaotic. There can be miscommunications or possibly abruptness in your discoveries, thoughts, and conversations. Plans can change on you, but it’s just as possible that you’re breaking them, as a change of mind can have you rebelling against your own plans! Avoid jumping to communicate before you’ve considered what you genuinely feel and believe, but do pay attention to ideas that seem to come out of the blue.
TaurusToday’s Venus-Neptune aspect can have a soothing effect on you, dear Taurus. You gravitate to activities that refresh your spirit and connections that inspire and delight you. Sharing your ideas and ideals can be rewarding, or there can be more compassion or understanding in a friendship today. As the day advances, there can be an emphasis on news, ideas, communications, and flashes of insight. Issues surrounding career, business, interactions with those in authority, reputation, and life path can be exciting but subject to pressure, rushing, and off-timing. Your desire to take care of business may compete with an urge to be a free spirit. Try not to succumb to pressures to produce an idea or a project so quickly that you skip steps.
GeminiYou might make unique connections or discover new layers to discover in a relationship or person now, dear Gemini. It can be a time when you’re especially attracted to someone’s depth of character. With a Mercury-Uranus square later today, mental energy may be a little frenetic. It may be best to ask yourself whether rushing makes sense since we can sometimes feel pressure when a regular pace will work just as well, if not better. There could be an uncomfortable issue or some moments of doubt. Ultimately, they can lead to improved feelings and relating, but it’s better to explore and observe than to jump to conclusions or decisions based on feelings today.
CancerYou might enjoy expressing yourself in ways that are meaningful to others today, dear Cancer. Your sensitivity attracts others, or someone appreciates your gentle qualities. With others cooperating, you feel more motivated in many different life departments. Later today, however, a Mercury-Uranus transit can stir up some tension. An unrecognized desire for change can spur a comment that surprises or disrupts. Aim to stay flexible and open to a schedule change or a switch of focus at a moment’s notice. It’s best to be aware of a tendency to blurt out provocative statements and tame this if you want to keep things smooth and easy. Tensions and mistakes are more likely if you feel rushed or pressured. If you can avoid the tendency to move too fast or live on your nerves, you can come to fascinating insights. While the day has a bit of a rollercoaster feel, you can learn a lot from the ups and downs.
LeoYou might feel moved by the idea that you’re helping and supporting others through your work or practical advice today, dear Leo. Your intuition for work, research, discrepancies, analysis, and health matters is powerful. A creative approach to problems can lead to new insight and unusual but effective solutions. Later today, however, a Mercury-Uranus square can stir some mental stress. It can very well be a good time for breaking free from rigid thinking, but it’s not ideal for solid progress. While it’s a generally enterprising time for you, you can temporarily feel a little scattered. Even if something communicated today bothers you, it’s best to avoid quick reactions since it’s not a good time to connect with your feelings on the matter.
VirgoYou can be in a pleasingly sociable and creative mood, dear Virgo. Compassion may move you to help and support someone who needs attention. Focusing on the positive and magical qualities of life can be calming. Later today, however, a Mercury-Uranus square can feel a little chaotic or tense. While it’s a generally reasonable period for attending to the details of your life, you may feel overwhelmed by things to do and the flaws you notice today. Schedule changes, surprise news, or other interruptions can figure strongly. Ideas coming to you can be inspired but not yet fleshed out. With all that’s distracting you today, watch that you don’t jump to conclusions or decisions. The day requires patience, particularly regarding opinions, directions, and instructions.
LibraToday’s transits gently stir your desire for harmony, beauty, and balance, dear Libra, and you’re likely to want to apply these things to your home or work environment. Making life more comfortable and pleasing can be a goal now. Still, as the day advances, thinking or communicating can be disjointed or scattered. There can be surprising twists and interruptions to manage with Mercury in a square aspect with Uranus. You’re mentally stimulated at best and wired at worst! Feedback can be abrupt, or ideas are inspired but not yet well-formed. For best results, aim to take note of ideas coming to you now and plan to come back to them later when you’re not as frazzled. This transit can seem noisy or chaotic, leaving it challenging to discern how you genuinely feel temporarily.
ScorpioYou more readily recognize and appreciate the beauty in your life and your relationships today, dear Scorpio. Emotionally refreshing activities are in focus. As the day advances, it’s not as easy to unwind with a Mercury-Uranus square. Consider ways to update traditions rather than cling to old ones if they’re causing problems, as it may not be worth the energy to hold onto things that are no longer serving you well. Miscommunications with family or a partner can occur, and your attention can be divided. Ideas and news may be exciting but perhaps leave you a little on edge. Minor schedule changes, interrupted plans, or offhand remarks are possible with this transit. Aim to be kind to yourself and find the time to catch your breath or avoid taking on too many things.
SagittariusYou can focus on what makes you feel comfortable and safe today, dear Sagittarius. You might recognize different levels and dimensions of your needs that you usually miss. You want to bring harmony and balance to your family and home life. While there is a distinctly gentle quality to the first half of the day, and you should take advantage of it, the Moon is in your sign, bringing the need to self-pamper into the equation. Ideally, you find ways to fill your needs to support and be supported. A Mercury-Uranus transit later today can point to some mental tension or disruptions. Schedule changes can certainly challenge you to grow and learn new things, but they can also throw you for a loop. You may be better off allowing room for spontaneity but watching for communicating about a matter too soon or without enough context.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, stirring a need to let go, forgive, and unwind. Transits in the first half of the day support this theme. Your more compassionate qualities are in the foreground. However, as the day advances, there can be surprise elements or mental over-stimulation with Mercury square to Uranus. Still, there can also be inspired or revealing moments. Impatience can lead to troubles, and it can be a good idea to take more care with personal possessions while watching for impulsive or poorly considered purchases. The appeal of entertainment or romantic splurges can be great right now, but this could interfere with recent efforts to be more careful and organized with your money.
AquariusThe first half of the day can produce opportunities to unwind emotionally and let go of tension and frustration, dear Aquarius, but later today can wind you up mentally! You are more inclined than usual to notice and appreciate the unique or magical side of people and situations. While the focus tends to be intangible and spiritual levels of your life, practical matters can benefit from a dose of imagination or intuition. Later today, a Mercury-Uranus square can point to minor schedule changes or interruptions. Ideas you generate now can be inspired but not (yet) well-rounded. Distractions are likely, and some ideas are a little raw, but you’ll have the time to fill in details later.
PiscesYou’re attracting positive attention today, dear Pisces, and you could be in the position to strengthen a friendship or let go of negativity or tension and put it behind you. As the day advances, aim to be aware of a tendency to move too quickly or speak ahead of yourself. Holding onto a secret may require extra effort now! A Mercury-Uranus square can generate some mental tension. Keep yourself as open as possible to unexpected changes to your schedule, and watch that you’re not your own worst enemy by saying or doing things that invite adverse reactions. Temporarily, continuity of thought isn’t easy, and it can be a bit of a challenge to stay on track. Conversations might touch a nerve. You may be dealing with loose ends or settling accounts for the time being, and while you may not feel the progress, you’re busy clearing the path for a smoother future.
