Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Moon in your intimacy sector all day, you’re more inclined to take things to heart, more so than usual, dear Aries. Today’s Venus-Neptune challenge is minor, inclining you to entertain fantasies more than consider realities. While you should watch that you don’t lock yourself into something important, it’s a fine time to let your imagination go. Because it’s all too easy to gloss over crucial details today, it’s not an ideal time for practical matters. You could also find yourself more sensitive or vulnerable to moodiness. If you can, try to slow down long enough to process recent events and tap into your true desires. Misunderstandings are possible, but you might decide to let things unfold as they may and reserve judgment.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Taurus, and the focus is on coming to some level of balance and harmony in your life. While you aim to see eye to eye with others, as much as you try, a lack of synchronicity right now can interfere. It’s minor and nothing that patience won’t fix. However, consider that you can be in quite the dreamy state of mind today. It can act as a pleasant detour from everyday life. However, try not to sign anything or commit yourself to what look like amazing plans now, but that may turn out to be impractical ventures down the road. Others may be vague or hard to pin down just for now.
GeminiWhile the desire to handle little problems can be strong today, dear Gemini, you might also have difficulty focusing on the tasks at hand in spots, which might result in unnecessary tension. The Moon transits your solar sixth house all day, raising your emotional sensitivity to imbalances and flaws. With a Venus-Neptune minor challenge, it’s not easy to get the specifics you want. The temptation to escape a situation in a roundabout way can be strong with this transit. There is also some tendency to misjudge a few things, as much as you want to see reality, so that making firm commitments is best saved for a clearer time. Your imagination and private world can be a strong draw.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your solar fifth house, dear Cancer, drawing out your affection and expressiveness. This transit can encourage you to push some limits creatively and perhaps socially. Nevertheless, there can be spots of uncertainty that are frustrating today. Aim to take a breather if things are not coming together well. Even if there are missteps, you can feel inspired to learn from them. Pleasant, non-demanding activities can be a release from your regular concerns. A Venus-Neptune influence can cloud your vision related to confidential matters and finances. Watch for glossing things over right now, and it’s best to be cautious with money, as it’s tempting to borrow from your future.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your family and home sector, dear Leo, suggesting a domestic emotional orientation. You’re a little more cautious and traditional in your approach to the world at this time of the lunar month, and it’s a good time to center yourself emotionally. Taking comfortable or safe routes as you build up your emotional strength makes sense right now. There is some tendency to set high or unrealistic expectations that temporarily inflate your balloon, leaving your moods rather vulnerable. It can be a challenge to focus. It’s not the best time for keeping your mind in the game, but if you can embark on a healthy escape, you may be better off for it.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your solar communications sector, dear Virgo, and you’re more inclined to seek mental stimulation. This is not an especially focused time, but it’s a fine day for learning a variety of different things. The curious side of your nature is at the forefront. Today’s energies are a little murky when it comes to people and their motivations, but if you need to adjust your vision of a matter a little, you may very well count yourself lucky for getting closer to the truth. It would be wise to avoid putting all of your hopes into others or placing all of your eggs into one basket today.
LibraThe Moon continues its transit of your solar second house, dear Libra, and you seek some constancy and security at this time of the lunar month. It may not be a straightforward quest today, but you might enjoy a break from overthinking. Wishful thinking can color perceptions in relationships as Venus forms a minor challenging aspect with Neptune, and there can be some see-sawing or beating around the bush. You’re willing to see both sides to a situation, which helps. Inflated expectations of others or circumstances can play with your head at times, but if you aim not to put all your happiness eggs into one basket, you’ll find much to enjoy.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Scorpio, and your emotional needs are on the front burner. It’s a good time for healthy attention to your personal needs. Still, you can lack a definite purpose or direction. There can be a let-down feeling if circumstances or people fail to live up to your expectations, but keep in mind that it’s a very temporary mood or state of mind. Consider that you may be reading too much into behaviors in hopes for emotional fulfillment. Satisfaction comes from within, and if you can’t count on others just for now, try not to let it impact your life too greatly. Aim to get centered. You can feel a little lost until you recognize the emotional needs that you may have been too busy to notice in recent weeks.
SagittariusThe Moon spends today in the sign behind yours, dear Sagittarius, and you tend to be on the down-low at this time in the lunar month. Others can be downright elusive today, but it may be best to recognize that energies are not ideal for making commitments or for realistic thinking and communicating. Promises made today don’t stand a strong chance of being fulfilled, so aim to keep expectations realistic and use the energy for dreaming up something creative instead. There is some tendency to feel in the dark on a matter, but energies are cooperative and friendly overall. It may be that you’re better off without clarity just for now.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your solar eleventh house, dear Capricorn. Although others may demand a little more of your time, it can be quite enjoyable. Exchanges can be pleasant, but nothing is very definitive today. Aim to avoid taking too much you hear to heart. Nervous tension can get you going, but you’ll find you burn out on it quickly. Opportunities to reawaken talents or parts of yourself that you were too shy to express can arise in the weeks ahead. Today, if you’ve been missing important spiritual considerations when trying to make a decision, you’ll feel the lack. It may be best to prioritize spiritual, emotional, and inspirational needs over the material world just for now.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to put more of yourself into your work or performance. Still, today’s energies are not particularly conducive to clarity or productivity. Be on the lookout for situations where the wrong signaling can lead to problems since others may not be reading you well, perhaps due to wishful thinking. It’s not an ideal time for major purchases, statements, or decisions, as there can be a bit of a fog surrounding the critical details of practical matters today, but it’s temporary. There can be some vagueness, and it’s best not to push for definitions and precision just for now.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Pisces, encouraging different or mind-expanding activities. It’s a supportive transit that can awaken your spirit and desire for something beyond the routine elements of life. With Venus in a minor challenging aspect with Neptune, it’s probably better to keep things light or, as it’s easy to become distracted or for your mind to wander. While today’s energies are wavering, you’re in mostly good spirits. At the same time, this is not a good time for a persistent “need to know” every last detail of an issue. Circumstances may be such that you become aware of areas where you’ve been glossing things over. As you recognize this tendency, your choices begin to improve.
