Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith a Sun-Mercury alignment in your social sector, dear Aries, today is useful for making sense of an experience or problem with a friend. Gaining a new perspective on matters helps you rise above the small problems in your life. Mercury is in the middle of its retrograde phase, and you tend to look back before pushing forward. You might also realize that a person means more to you than you had previously thought. Overall, however, it’s a time for taking in and processing recent events, mainly related to friendships, allegiances, and happiness goals or work towards a cherished dream. Ideally, a new understanding of an old problem emerges. Ideas coming to you now can be significant ones for you in the long term. A friend from the past may reappear in your life, or an old friendship matter now makes more sense. Interactions today feel destined or serendipitous.
TaurusYou’re in a good position to review recent ideas, projects, or decisions today, dear Taurus, particularly about business or the longer-term, bigger items. Approaching life direction and long-term goals in new ways can be fruitful, perhaps leading to significant ideas and plans. Ambitions, career, responsibilities, or reputation issues can be in focus with the Sun’s alignment to retrograde Mercury in your solar tenth house. Your observations today can be invaluable later, but it’s still not the best time for conclusive or definite decision-making. Certain directions your life is taking become more evident now. While you’re making strides, be especially aware of what you say today since Mercury is retrograde in the most public area of your solar chart, and your impact is greater than usual.
GeminiThere can be a new perspective on a matter today, dear Gemini, and the things you read and hear about this week can be beneficial for future projects. You may not yet see their full significance, but it’s a good time for planting the seeds of ideas. You’re inclined to draw upon your experience and create something new from it. Thoughts might turn to the past or recent decisions and plans, but you’re looking at things in a very new light, which can be most helpful. The conversations you engage in now can be inspiring and possibly quite enlightening. Nevertheless, with Mercury retrograde, it’s probably best to be more mindful of directions, instructions, and what you communicate.
CancerNew insight into an old relationship or your own psyche can be helpful and enlightening today, dear Cancer. The Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury in your solar eighth house, making it a powerful time to delve into your feelings and intimate thoughts. If you’re a little self-absorbed now, it may very well be a valuable exercise. You’re likely to gain a big clue or further information on a matter, but it’s not yet time for a conclusion. Thoughts, ideas, news, or conversations about private or financial matters now can lead to important directions or developments in the future. Also today, partnering up can help you solve a problem.
LeoYou may look at a relationship in a new way today, dear Leo, or someone helps you see a whole new perspective on a matter, and it’s illuminating! The Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury in your partnership sector, and it helps you see a relationship matter in a new light. You’re unlikely to have all the answers now, but counseling or negotiating can be significant. Today is strong for opening up conversations about the past since there is more consideration of both sides of a situation. The significance of your ideas or discussions today may not be clear yet, but they can lead to important conclusions or directions down the road. You might recognize relationship needs, and new goals can emerge. People are intrigued by you and drawn to you.
VirgoAs the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your work and health sector, dear Virgo, you approach problems from a different angle, which can be very helpful. You see some of the details of your life that you previously missed. You might gain meaningful insight into a work, chore, or health issue. Ideas born now can have great significance later. You seem to be the go-to person for help or information, and you enjoy this role today. It’s better to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas than to start all-new ones, but your thinking in this regard is creative. You also benefit from a stimulating transit that affects your relationship sectors, boosting your confidence and courage.
LibraToday brings interesting thoughts, significant ideas, and creative sparks, dear Libra. You might discover new ways of expressing yourself that are perhaps a little non-traditional but very satisfying. Reviewing old ideas can lead to new methods that can be very important in the months to come. Your attitude about future growth and improvement is evolving as the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury. An old issue looks differently, and you might lay something to rest or refine a goal or approach. Further information or an epiphany about a creative or romantic matter can figure strongly. Today also brings good energy for family affairs, work, and health goals. You can derive much pleasure from doing a job well.
ScorpioWith the Sun and retrograde Mercury coming together in your solar fourth house, dear Scorpio, you tend to want to make sense of matters from the past. You’re in great shape for some exploring, as ideas that result from today’s musings and communications can have long-term importance. You might gain a new understanding of a past, home, or family matter. It’s a good day for releasing a problem through conversation with someone you trust. It’s nevertheless best to observe, take notes, and muse rather than lock something down. You’re also in good shape for creative efforts, hobbies, or romantic pursuits, and you might enjoy a refreshing and motivating experience.
SagittariusYou might revive an old interest or view a current one in a new light, dear Sagittarius, as the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury. There can be helpful conversations and musings figuring strongly. Ideas generated now, especially about learning, mental interests, communication, neighbors, connections, and siblings, can be especially significant. They could kickstart a long-term pursuit or lead you in an important new direction. While this can be a turning point, it may be best to postpone big launches until more information comes to complete the picture–Mercury is still retrograde, after all. We’re now in the middle of the retrograde Mercury cycle, and there can be more to an evolving story. For now, it’s a great time to observe, get a feel for a matter, and take notes.
CapricornIt’s a time for seeing a matter in a new light, dear Capricorn, and benefits come from doing so. The Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your sector of money, business, valuables, talents, and personal possessions today, and it makes sense to pay special attention to ideas coming in now. Something falls into place, and it can feel magical. You tend to look to the past for answers before moving forward. Keep in mind that what you say today can ultimately be quite memorable, so you might want to carefully choose your words. Thinking tends to revolve around your personal belongings, money situation, or comfort matters. For now, aim to observe and analyze rather than lock things down. You might decide to give someone, an old project, or a situation another look or the benefit of the doubt.
AquariusYou tend to look at problems in a new way today, dear Aquarius, as the Sun and retrograde Mercury come together in your sign. You’re sure to arrive at interesting conclusions and insights as you take stock of recent events and draw upon the past for ideas. Your words have a little more impact than usual, and with Mercury still retrograde, you may want to take special care when communicating. Aim to clear out the mental clutter to make room for positive thoughts and new ideas. Observations made now can lead to significant and long-term improvements. On another note, you can get a sense that you’re moving forward on emotional or financial matters.
PiscesToday’s transits can help you let go of attitudes or situations that aren’t doing you any favors, dear Pisces. There can be meaningful new insights into your innermost feelings, the past, or a long-term problem now as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your solar twelfth house. This sector of your solar chart rules karma, the past, and all that is hidden or under wraps. You might get interesting cues from your impressions and dreams, or an important conversation or special think session can help you see the light. A secret revealed or an epiphany leads you to view old problems or a past matter in a new way. Alternative methods can be inspiring. Outworn attitudes have to go, and circumstances now make you especially aware of this fact, helping pave the road for tremendous progress.
