Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile the Moon has emphasized your need for others in recent days, dear Aries, it now moves into your solar eighth house, and you’re a little more selective. You prefer deeper connections, whether with others or current interests and activities. You might be able to get a lot done, but there are times today when the energy you spin is of the nervous variety. You’d prefer not to spread yourself too thin, and you’ll feel much better by the end of the day if you stay focused, but the Moon’s opposition to Uranus can certainly challenge your concentration. Energy levels may vacillate, and distractions can be plenty, but if you open yourself to the possibility that all will not go as planned and remain flexible, you can work around this rather well.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your opposite sign today, dear Taurus, and you’re more sensitive to imbalance. You may not be at your energetic best at this time of the lunar month, but your social life can get some much-needed attention. Your need for others is animating. The Moon forms tense aspects today, and it’s best to avoid allowing insecurities and fears to drive your behavior, as career or concerns about your responsibilities can sometimes take you away from the moment. Aim to recognize your need for others or make adjustments to your plans to accommodate important people in your life. It’s a good time to listen. Pushing and prodding can get you nowhere fast today, as the more you push, the stronger the resistance.
GeminiYou can feel considerably more invested in your daily routines or work today, dear Gemini. Special attention to details and flaws can serve an excellent purpose, especially if the systems or structures in your life need some tweaking. However, part of you is seeking the overview or bigger picture, and you could feel divided. Common sense and instincts can be at war today. While desires are strong, responsibilities and restrictions are also very much on your mind. After wrestling with an issue, you may very well discover that what you wanted so very much becomes far less appealing. Identifying the source of restlessness might help. Find ways to increase your efficiency or productivity, but give yourself the breaks you need.
CancerThe Moon heads into your expressive sector of pleasure and enjoyment for a couple of days, dear Cancer. It’s a transit that often boosts your mood, but with a lot on your mind today, you might come across more playfully than you feel. Ups and downs on a social level can get to you in spots, particularly because you prefer consistency. The energies of the day tend to promote the opposite! Be flexible with others, or you may become frustrated with unreliability. While the day may bring unpredictable energy into your world, you might also have a chance to make changes or to become inspired by new ways of thinking, new approaches, and new creative ideas.
LeoWith the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house today, dear Leo, you gravitate toward the most familiar or comfortable settings. If it’s possible, take a breather from new experiences. Surprises from the outside may throw off your schedule or make you feel a little nervous at times today. However, focusing on bringing more harmony to your personal or domestic life can be successful if you’re determined and flexible. Try not to allow tensions related to work, bosses, or goals and outside demands to distract you from the current mission to center yourself. The major obstacle now can be allowing yourself the right to relax.
VirgoThere is a tendency to scatter your energy today, dear Virgo, which can work for you in moderation, but too much can leave you feeling tense. With the Moon’s move into your solar third house, it’s natural to do some branching out. You’re craving some variety, and you’re not as tolerant of routines that are lacking life. You could find yourself a little too distractable for your own good, and if so, it’s time to remind yourself of priorities and make a plan to put the rest on a shelf. Your interests are many, and it can be a real challenge to fit everything your mind wants into your schedule! Try to pace yourself and aim to be flexible if faced with changes in plans.
LibraWith the Moon in your sign in recent days, dear Libra, your personal experiences and goals have been in high focus. However, the Moon heads into your solar second house, and you’re more interested in slowing down to enjoy, appreciate, or build upon what you have. A more predictable and secure pace helps soothe you at this time of the lunar month, and you’re attracted to earthy activities and experiences. Aim to take on something new only if you truly have room in your life for more, taking into account a health buffer zone! Feelings may be up and down, as you can feel in limbo or divided. It can get to you more than usual if you disagree with others about money or fundamental values.
ScorpioThe Moon leaves your privacy sector and moves into your sign today, dear Scorpio, which begins a new lunar cycle for you. You now tend to focus on yourself and what you’ve been missing in recent weeks. It’s a time to learn about your needs and desires, as they become far more evident, but it’s a good idea to draw on patience, knowing that emotional needs feel more pressing or urgent with the Moon in your sign! Restrictions or those things that seem to stifle your sense of freedom can be a little hard to tolerate. Others may oppose your plans or could be going in different directions. While you’re self-motivated now, transits today tend to leave you feeling somewhat divided, and you’d be wise to aim to center yourself.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house, dear Sagittarius, and on some levels, you can be content to withdraw into yourself and center yourself or digest recent experiences. You might be a little closed emotionally, but it’s a time for gaining strength. Desires and impulses are unusual, and you’re tuned in to subtle planes, seeing things you might not usually see. Because the Moon is forming some tense aspects, including its opposition to Uranus, it may not be easy to concentrate or specialize. Work-related issues can test your patience, for example. It’s best to avoid over-exerting yourself, finding ways to detach from the world in some way to retreat into a reflective space.
CapricornThere’s been a goal-oriented focus in the past few days, dear Capricorn, but today, a desire to unwind can take hold. Aim to pay special attention to any activities that strengthen your self-image, and humanitarian goals fill a need within you right now. Today’s energies are a touch fraught, and you could sense some underlying tensions. Fluctuating emotions today might stem from a desire to change but a simultaneous fear of upsetting your sense of security. You might crave something unusual or unconventional in your activities. Taking a more relaxed, flexible, and creative approach to your life right now is likely to yield the best results.
AquariusWith the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, you’re inclined to set goals or assess your progress towards current ones. Still, the Moon’s tense aspects today suggest that it’s hard to focus. Your personal life can be a strong draw, or a disorganized feeling inside prevents you from feeling entirely efficient. The desire to push personal plans ahead can be strong, but it’s best to take it slowly. There can be stronger calls to pay more attention to your responsibilities, both to yourself and others. You might feel a bit put upon in spots. By simplifying and aiming to do your best, you regain power. This can also be a strong time for attending to your practical affairs, which is empowering.
PiscesWith the Moon’s move into your solar ninth house for a couple days, you seek more interactivity and inspiration, dear Pisces. Even so, the Moon forms some tense aspects today, which can introduce some bottlenecks or obstacles that slow you down. Mustering up patience if delays occur is your best bet. It’s best to avoid sudden reactions, aiming to respond carefully as you seek to reach a middle ground. Still, the desire to experience or learn something different is strong, and some variation on your usual routine can be most refreshing now. It’s a good day for drawing upon your intuition to construct ideas, but there can be distinct moments of restlessness to manage. Ideally, they don’t lead to unnecessary problems.
