Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou have excellent energy with you for organizing your life in small but essential ways, with a focus on the details, dear Aries. It’s a time when you thoroughly enjoy piecing things together. A new method can emerge that makes your duties or tasks more pleasant to perform. Later today, it may not be easy to manage all that you have going on. You might feel unsupported or worried about your position in your career or with your reputation. Watch how you react. The key to taming anxiety, frustration, and perhaps a bit of paranoia can be to give yourself some space so that you can reason things out on your own or with the objective opinion of someone you trust outside of the situation. To some extent, you may need to be cautious of competition these days, but it’s important not to let this take over. Allowing yourself to take a step back to reflect will lead to better choices in the future.
TaurusThe Moon in your joy sector forms some pleasant aspects today, dear Taurus, and you’re likely to find satisfying ways to express or enjoy yourself. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time, and later today, your chores or duties. You’re expanding your mind and worldview these days, and you’d prefer to do that on your own terms, not through conflict. Today, you could feel a little self-protective. With the Sun in minor challenging aspect to Pluto, you could feel under pressure, or you may be fixating on an unresolved, frustrating matter from the past. Allowing for differences in opinion without feeling attacked and genuinely listening to other viewpoints can be rewarding. However, it also makes sense to examine any tension that emerges so that you can get to the bottom of it.
GeminiThe Moon helps boost your personal life, domestic world, and romantic relationships today, dear Gemini. You’re inclined to want to tone things down in the first half of the day, and you have the chance to let go and enjoy yourself, especially if you remind yourself that you don’t have to be “on” all the time. A Sun-Pluto aspect can lead to some tensions brewing as the day advances, especially interpersonal ones. Anxiety may seem to interfere with your relationships or work. Still, you might resolve to take some firm steps towards improving your current situation so that you feel less uneasy or vulnerable in the future. There are no quick and easy fixes, but starting small and working on things one step at a time will get you a few steps closer to a freer, more empowering position. It’s a good time to identify activities and thought processes that drain you and eat up a lot of your time. If you can work on eliminating some of the things that have been dragging you down, you’ll do well for yourself now.
CancerYou’re in great shape for connecting well through communications today, dear Cancer. The Moon later heads into your solar fourth house of home and family for a couple of days, and you prefer to wind down. Specializing or detoxing from “too much information” can help this time in the lunar month. Even so, there can be some tension brewing in a one-to-one relationship. You enjoy some predictability in your closest relationships, but with Pluto and the Sun in minor challenging aspect, others can trigger you in small but annoying ways. Experiences now tend to put you in touch with some of your fears of change, unpredictability, and loss of control. Your first reaction may be to search for ways to regain or maintain control, but attempts to do so can bring about undesirable results. Power games get nowhere now. While competition can motivate you to improve your game, you’ll maximize your position if you work on avoiding defensiveness.
LeoYou continue to benefit from a steadier pace, dear Leo, and you’re inclined to focus on your physical and sensual needs more than usual. For much of the day, you can find yourself wonderfully content with the simple pleasures and comforts of life. However, as the day advances, tension can result from overattachment to a particular method, and knowing when to let go is being kind to yourself! You tend to shoulder work responsibilities automatically, and while this can work in your favor a lot of the time, you can occasionally feel too much pressure, and this can be one of those times. Your pride may keep you from sharing a sense of being overwhelmed. Think about ways to share the load, even while continuing to give it your best.
VirgoAs the Moon continues to transit your sign in the first half of the day, you feel connected and engaged, dear Virgo. It’s a dynamic time for getting in touch with your emotional needs, and your ideas are extraordinarily bright. As the day advances, you’re inclined to focus on more practical matters, but also to take on more concerns and worries than is healthy. There can be some competitive elements in your social interactions that serve to frustrate you. It can be difficult to ignore problems or to allow them to resolve themselves. With a Sun-Pluto transit in play, pressures and frustrations take on bigger proportions, and you could find yourself obsessing over things that don’t deserve the attention. Regarding relationships and special projects, your pride might lead you to keep your fears to yourself, which can work against you and your connections in the long run. Look for ways to release some of this pressure.
LibraYou may begin the day wanting to take a breather, dear Libra, but then the Moon enters your sign later today, and you could feel as if you’re reanimating. Your emotions need ready outlets. Until then, you may need some time to regroup and recharge your emotional batteries. However, as the day advances, complications are possible, but you can aim to tackle them one step at a time. Feeling overwhelmed gets you nowhere. Consider that your need for security and control in your domestic world can be so strong sometimes that it might obscure your decisions in other areas of your life. You are learning to embrace change, but it takes time–allow yourself this luxury. You do stand to gain much self-understanding through your reactions to others, and you may very well gravitate to activities that bring spice to your emotional life. While tensions run high, the Moon in your sign encourages you to acknowledge your feelings and pay some extra attention to personal needs and plans.
ScorpioToday’s energies are good for connecting, whether with someone special or a stronger purpose through a goal or dream, dear Scorpio. The Moon does move into your privacy sector later today, and for a couple of days, you need a little more time to regroup and restore your energy. Still, watch for taking on more concerns and worries than is healthy. A Sun-Pluto minor challenging aspect can trigger some fears of losing control over a situation. The tendency is to be a little guarded with what you share, but consider that your intense need to get everything right may effectively end up putting too much pressure on yourself. You could feel a bit frustrated with others who seem to be getting in the way or slowing you down.
SagittariusLong-term goals and performance are strong on your mind in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius. You’re finding it natural to connect with your ambitions. Setting goals is motivating. Later, you’re inclined to want to tone down pressures and enjoy yourself more. Social matters are a stronger draw. Even so, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge comes into play, and worries about money or security can magnify, interfering with your day in little ways. While you’re inclined to keep these fears to yourself, it may be helpful to share your concerns with a trusted person so that you can release some pressure. An objective opinion might help since you’re probably too close to a situation.
CapricornThe day’s energies are good for learning, guiding, and sharing, dear Capricorn. Your ambitions increase as the day advances. You may not have things handed to you today — you’re more likely to need to work for your rewards, but it can be quite satisfying to do so. Still, watch for shouldering too many responsibilities since pressures within can build. Frustrations might mount related to wanting to do more than you can currently manage, but don’t push yourself. You may fear a loss of respect if you reveal your vulnerabilities, but consider that it would be most helpful to release tension, even if you start small. You’ll feel stronger and freer if you let go of some of the unnecessary pressure you put on yourself.
AquariusYou tend to want to pour your energies into absorbing and compelling activities today, dear Aquarius. The first half of the day is good for emotional strength and centering yourself. As the day advances, you could itch to be more actively involved in life as a participant rather than an observer. Still, interactions can be a little tense. Avoid starting or furthering power games since they get you nowhere. However, consider that guardedness of your privacy or shying away from deeper issues may be at the root of tensions at the moment. It could be that something you’ve swept under the rug needs some attention. If you feel overwhelmed, aim to start working on problems one step and a little at a time.
PiscesThe Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector for the first part of the day, dear Pisces, and you’re focusing on bringing more harmony and a stronger sense of balance to your life. You also prefer to consult others–you’re not at your most independent at this point in the lunar month. As the day advances, you are a little more serious and inclined to focus. With a minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto, aim to avoid putting too high expectations on yourself. Consider that you may be bearing others’ burdens and hardships more than is healthy, perhaps at your own expense. Pride may keep you from talking about a problem, or there can be a build-up of pressure related to bottling up your worries or fears. Consider ways to release some of the extra load you’re carrying so that you go forward in your peak period freer and more confident.
