Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesSome awkward moments or poor timing with communications are possible in the first half of the day, dear Aries. Still, as you recognize soft spots or sensitive areas, solutions to problems are not far behind. You’re in great shape for guiding and supporting friends, especially as the day advances. Ideas generated now are particularly fertile and creative, but it’s the process of exchange that is most interesting to you now. While retrograde Mercury can certainly slow down some information pipelines, you’re in fine shape for inventive thinking and communicating. You might cultivate old connections or pay special attention to reviving a past project, dream, or plan. Today and tomorrow are solid for processing and recycling ideas. A new understanding of an old matter, particularly on the lines of friendship, can figure strongly.
TaurusYou might strengthen ties and find peace with your past today and tomorrow, dear Taurus, or at least a new understanding of a long-term issue. It’s a great time to observe and learn, particularly about others’ motivations, reasons, or backstory. Mercury’s retrograde enables a new perspective on old problems, projects, and approaches, particularly related to work and long-term goals. Still, it’s best to be clear, as your message might come across powerfully but not inclined to translate well. Examining the past can be most rewarding if it turns up some useful insight, or recycling past ideas can lead to great discoveries and new methods. You might think up a doable idea regarding a career or public move. It can be a fertile week, in fact, for work, business, and other practical ideas.
GeminiMercury’s current retrograde can produce some problems with misunderstandings, dear Gemini, but you’re in an optimistic frame of mind. Ideas that come to you intuitively today can be significant, and you might go over past ideas and beliefs, this time around approaching them with new energy or a different perspective. Interactions and communications can be especially relevant, and perhaps inspirational, setting you along a new, more enlightened path. You’re thinking about ways to expand your life experience beyond the routine these days, and you can be particularly inspired by your prospects, new insights, and mind-expanding theories today and tomorrow. People are especially interested in your conversation, ideas, and opinions, and you may be leading the way in some manner among friends and associates.
CancerThere can be engaging shared experiences now, dear Cancer. You tend to analyze, talk about, or pick apart the past to better understand the present. Today and tomorrow are solid days for mental insights, mostly revolving around your personal life, intimate relationship with yourself, awareness of your fears, addictions, and attachments, and dependencies on others. Your vision of these things is likely to improve, and ideas and strategies for better managing your life and dealing with problem areas can come to you in a great flash. Going over in your mind or talking about a personal issue with someone can figure strongly. Money owed or due could be an issue. Your mind is investigative, and your desire to understand a matter more deeply tends to dominate right now.
LeoYou tend to focus your mind more intently today, dear Leo, and you benefit from doing some analyzing, sorting, and reorganizing. Going over plans may figure strongly, although you could be waiting on some missing puzzle pieces. The emphasis is on looking at the past differently and learning from it. There might be a complicated but illuminating conversation with/about a partner. The tendency is to go over a problem to arrive at a new understanding, and it’s useful, even if you may not have all the answers yet. You might share a problem or brainstorm successfully now. You might renew interest in an old subject or project, and brushing up your knowledge can be satisfying. A partner or friend could provide valuable feedback.
VirgoToday and tomorrow are strong for putting your thoughts in order, dear Virgo. It’s best to be a little more careful with your communications these days, but it’s also a great time to see problems or past matters in new ways. There can be significant conversations or further thoughts about work, routines, employees, or health matters. You might gather information to help out others, and in the process, learn something important for yourself. Solving problems can be involving and absorbing, although you may not be privy to the complete picture. Even so, considering various possible scenarios can be a useful exercise, if only to help you feel prepared for future decision-making.
LibraThis is a strong period of your life to boost your relationships and feel inspired by what you’re learning, dear Libra. Your interactions benefit from increased listening and attention. As you learn more about the world around you, you feel more confident and connected. You’re willing to step a little outside of your comfort zone on a mental level. Still, there is a focus on the past now that seems important before you move forward. Reviewing past ideas this week can bring new methods to light. There might instead be recycled opportunities, or you might connect with someone from your past that brings more clarity to a matter. You might discover something about a romantic or creative matter that changes your perspective, or you might help guide someone, and it’s rewarding. Seeing resources that you’ve overlooked in the past can figure strongly.
ScorpioIt’s a generally good time for strength in the family unit or in relationships with people who are like family to you, dear Scorpio. There could be some misunderstandings, but they tend to lead to important clarifications and greater insight overall. Exchanges in close relationships are helpful and rewarding, although there may be a disconnect before getting to this state. You’re likely to be especially reasonable and objective in any discussion that ensues as the day advances. You tend to analyze or go over the past, particularly about or with family. An idea that comes out of these thoughts or conversations can be significant. Money or something lost could turn up unexpectedly. You could renew interest in an old project or return to something you’ve left unfinished.
SagittariusCommunications taken the wrong way early today can open up problem areas, dear Sagittarius. Aim to learn more about yourself and your feelings through this experience. Still, keeping the lines of communication open may be the key now, even if there are some missteps along the way. The benefits of a friend, partner, or support system become obvious. You can get a lot done today, even if there is some tendency to scatter your energies. Aim to be a bit cautious when making formal statements or commitments, as these can be error-prone. Ideas that come to you can be significant, as they may spark a long-term interest or pursuit, even if they’re a little raw for now. There can be helpful conversations about the past or previously tricky topics.
CapricornEarly today, it’s easier than usual to touch sore spots or to misunderstand instructions or expressions, dear Capricorn. Even so, you stand to gain a greater understanding overall through small issues that come up. Especially as the day advances, you can enjoy more insight into your situation, even if all the information isn’t yet at your disposal. It’s a good time to work on budgets or research a potential purchase. There can be opportunities to attract people or information that helps you grow and learn. You seem particularly able to talk about practical matters and come up with real solutions to problems today. The key is approaching old issues from a new angle or perspective.
AquariusEarly today, it may be better to be vigilant about words chosen to express yourself, dear Aquarius. Extra attention to kindness may be in order, as people can be sensitive, and crossed signals are possible. However, the day shapes up to be an excellent one for doing some extra thinking or sorting out your thoughts. You might experience a renewed interest in a hobby or creative pursuit that motivates you. It’s a good time to find the information you need, even if some of the pieces to a puzzle aren’t yet available. Mercury continues its retrograde motion in your sign, and there can be some delays or miscommunications. However, a new understanding of a past matter can give birth to an improved idea, and you can feel that a fresh start is possible.
PiscesThe first half of the day holds tricky energy for communicating, dear Pisces, but it can also be a revealing time. You might discover or recognize areas of vulnerability. There is strong energy for personal, home, and family matters, particularly as the day progresses. You might find alternate ways of dealing with problem areas that turn out to work beautifully. Even if a solution is not yet in sight, you can feel comforted by sorting things out on a mental plane and preparing yourself for different possibilities. You might pull out an old project or plan and enjoy reworking it. A private matter or secret might reveal itself, or you speak of a very personal, private issue, confiding in someone. There can be a new understanding of a past matter, and seeing an old problem in a new way can be liberating on some level.
