Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesFriendship, networking, and happiness goals are in strong focus for you now, dear Aries, but there can be some complications today. You could struggle with whether to go it alone or enlist help on a matter. While sincere, you may not feel like following through or taking on new commitments later, as energy and confidence tend to lift up very high and then dip. As such, be moderate with promises or bypass them altogether. This is about thinking you can do more than you truly can, and remembering your limits is an excellent strategy. Keeping busy is a must with the Moon in your communications sector for much of the day. Later today, however, it moves into your home and family sector, and life is settling, or you’re seeking more peace or predictability.
TaurusToday is good for participation and cooperation, dear Taurus. However, you tire quickly of anything that lacks magic. Your professional duties or personal responsibilities can be pressing, but a good part of you would prefer to go your own way. It’s not easy focusing on priorities temporarily, as much as you’d like to. Look for a balance rather than trying to push either one drive or the other. Watch for some tendency for news you hear to be exaggerated. Distractions aside, you can be feeling quite optimistic now.
GeminiYou could be seeking a little more from your relationships than your manner implies today, dear Gemini, and there can be mixed signals or letdowns. The key to handling the day is to be moderate and avoid going over the top. Keep in mind that decisions made today may result from exaggerated perceptions or misinformation. This way, you may decide not to invest too much in what you hear or see, and instead enjoy yourself. Helping you along is the Moon in your sign for much of the day. Misleading information aside, the day holds good-natured energy for sharing and cooperating.
CancerInner restlessness may be an issue today, dear Cancer, as Mercury and Jupiter form a minor challenging aspect. There can be some truth-stretching or dramatic thinking and conversations. Avoid spending too much time deciding the best path since mentally tossing around possibilities can be more distracting than usual. Considering that what you say or hear may be exaggerated today, you can enjoy yourself without committing to anything substantial. To avoid committing to something that later is burdensome, aim to remember your usual limits. Your dreams and plans can be very grand today–let your imagination go even if the finer details need attention later.
LeoThere can be some challenges coordinating or balancing your sense of independence with others today, dear Leo. While you may not want to stir up past matters, it can be cleansing to do so with some willingness to grow and move past problem areas. While the day should feel good on many levels, there is some inclination to feel restless, which can stimulate the urge to go to excess. Overstating is a potential problem right now. In truth, you may only be looking for more meaning in your life and a deeper connection to the world around you. It makes sense to explore the roots of dissatisfaction. What you say today may not accurately reflect what you genuinely want and need. Still, if you aim to avoid investing too much energy or faith in what you hear, you can enjoy the interactions you have today.
VirgoWork, health, and habits are strong themes in your life, dear Virgo, but your relationship with any of these things can temporarily be complicated. There may be a sidetracking that interferes with productivity. Fortunately, a positive attitude and the determination to not let the little things get you down can save the day. Still, watch for a tendency to gloss over or neglect essential details. In your relationships, you may be wanting more drama or “proof” that someone cares. Alternatively, someone may be seeking this from you. When it comes to work or chores, you might feel you can take on a lot, but keep in mind that energy and time may not match your optimism today.
LibraToday’s energies can be a little tricky in the social or romantic department, dear Libra, but potentially quite rewarding once you surmount minor problems. It will be especially important to avoid going over the top, particularly with what you’re saying. At the same time, try not to put your faith in something promised. Communications today can be positive but perhaps exaggerated, leading to complications down the road. Try not to count on plans that appear to be too unrealistic, but do stretch your mind and entertain bigger ideas. The Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart later today stimulates a desire for more order and purpose in your life for the coming days.
ScorpioThe tendency to make too much of a situation is a potential problem today, dear Scorpio, with Mercury and Jupiter forming a minor challenging aspect. If you remember that there is a theme of exaggeration and drama now, you won’t invest too much in what’s communicated, and you can enjoy yourself more. For best results today, aim to take your time coming to conclusions but engage in some stretching of your mind. Later today, the Moon moves into your spirit sector, encouraging you to believe in your dreams and look to your broader goals. Gaining perspective can be beautiful.
SagittariusThe Moon continues in your partnership sector for much of the day, dear Sagittarius, drawing your attention to your relationships, negotiations, and connections. Your responses to others are generous today, and while this is wonderful on some levels, there is a tendency to overstate or exaggerate. This can happen quite sincerely in the moment, but may be skewed by restlessness or overestimating your needs. You might also misjudge your energy to follow through on something, as motivation levels can be very high but then dip dramatically. However, bringing expectations down to earth can allow you to enjoy the day more fully.
CapricornYou’re in good shape for building and development these days, dear Capricorn. However, you could struggle with some restlessness today, as much as you generally prefer to enjoy a slower pace. Your curiosity might also stir the pot now! There is a tendency to either talk too much or too prematurely, and for your mind to wander. Aim to take your time digesting everything you learn before making decisions. At the same time, while some woolgathering can be useful, it can be a form of procrastination if taken too far. Time might be better spent focusing on current practical needs. If you can tame unproductive tendencies, the day can be wonderfully positive.
AquariusYou’re ready to take on challenges without further thought today, dear Aquarius, but remember that a bit of circumspection and strategy can go a long way now. A solid plan to go by may not be in place. Watch for taking things too far, particularly with communications and decisions. You’re generally more willing to offer advice and speak about personal plans and goals with Mercury in your sign these days, as you enjoy the feedback you receive from others. However, something can feel exaggerated or magnified in either an optimistic or pessimistic direction right now. Aim to take your time coming to conclusions and especially making promises.
PiscesThe Moon spends much of the day in your home and family sector, dear Pisces, making it a great time to enjoy familiar comforts, people, and settings. It’s a day for building your sense of belonging and support. A Mercury-Jupiter minor challenge can bring on the temptation to take on more than you should, count on something to come through, or make promises that can eventually be difficult to keep. Dare to dream, but don’t overlook the fine print in the process. If you choose to help someone today, choose carefully. You may be reading people incorrectly just for now. Take this time to better understand yourself and your feelings, but avoid making big decisions now.
