Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesImpulsiveness is a tendency in the first half of the day, dear Aries, particularly with communications. It’s best to aim to avoid jumping into something prematurely and watch for tensions over expectations from others. Messages can be conflicting right now. A Mercury-Mars minor challenge might stir nervousness or argumentativeness. Try not to take disagreements personally and find ways to set your own pace rather than rely on others who may not be moving at the right speed for your liking temporarily. There can be tension between your desire for companionship and your urge for more freedom or independence. Still, spending more time on someone else’s plans or needs can give you a refreshing break. Later today, it’s easier to define and focus on your priorities.
TaurusIn the first half of the day, dear Taurus, the tendency to make rash decisions runs high as Mercury and Mars form a tense minor aspect. Skipping steps or ignoring precautions can be too easy, and getting riled up by differences of opinion can frustrate you. It may be best to conserve energy rather than snap back. This transit can stir nervousness or argumentativeness. The Moon’s transits challenge you to see two sides of a situation. Expectations that are too high can play with your mood, but if you keep them in check, you can find much to enjoy.
GeminiToday’s Mercury-Mars tense aspect can leave you feeling somewhat unsettled, dear Gemini, and a Moon-Jupiter opposition points to restlessness. Quick action may not have desirable outcomes if acting from this state. Avoid the tendency to jump to conclusions or to make unstudied choices. Listen to your urges, but judge whether you may be temporarily blowing things out of proportion. You’ll attract the most luck if you tone down the tendency to overdo or overindulge. This comes to you more naturally later today and into tomorrow when transits offer you more foresight.
CancerIn the first half of the day, watch for impatience when communicating, dear Cancer, and avoid skipping steps or information. It’s far too easy to argue or nitpick with Mercury’s minor challenging aspect to Mars. If emotions are released in spurts, or if you’re not representing yourself confidently, your proclamations may bewilder others now. Take more time with your ideas — get them straight and choose tomorrow or later to share. With the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house, it’s best to enjoy some release of ambitions, tension, or pressure. Later today, focusing on priorities becomes easier.
LeoYou can be itching for change today, dear Leo, but you may not know where to start just for now. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of too-quick decision-making. With today’s transits, skipping steps or rushing through things is far too easy. The tendency to jump to conclusions or arguments is strong, but you’re likely to be far better off observing and using a wait-and-see approach, which comes more naturally as the day progresses. The Moon moves into your communications sector for a stay of over two days, and learning and sharing are themes. This transit can keep you on your toes.
VirgoUnresolved problems can be glaring to you today, dear Virgo, with your ruler, Mercury, in minor challenging aspect with Mars. Still, it’s hard to muster up a good plan to tackle them. Watch for hasty or band-aid solutions to problems that require more depth and energy. Making too-quick decisions today is probably not in your best interests. With the Moon’s move into your solar second house, in fact, the day’s energies are better for comforting, emotionally-centering activities. Aim to detox and unwind by simplifying your life and leveling your expectations. Later today, it’s easier to draw on patience.
LibraTension in the first half of the day is largely due to a Mercury-Mars aspect that can convince you that you need to get things done immediately, dear Libra, but pushing is likely to lead to frustration. There can also be restless moments today with the Moon in your sign opposite Jupiter, but it’s a great time for understanding your needs. Aim to feed your mind’s need for stimulation, but avoid jumping to conclusions or communicating too quickly. Note that mental stress could temporarily interfere with your ability to think clearly and take action confidently. As the day advances, strategy comes more naturally. Your thinking is clearer and more serious, benefiting home and family or practical matters.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house today, dear Scorpio, pointing to the need for rest and reflection. While you are encouraged to do some inner exploration, the early day can feel hectic. Watch for impatience with others, and perhaps also with your work or communications. It can be tempting to skip steps or jump to conclusions, but neither is advisable. You could be called to task for something that needs your attention. As the day advances, concentration and focus improve, but the day’s not necessarily strong for light conversation or social activity, as you have bigger things on your mind. While you need a detox from the routine, the routine tends to call you in today!
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, it may be best to watch for off-the-cuff remarks or quick decisions and conclusions, dear Sagittarius. Mercury and Mars form a minor challenging aspect, and succumbing to impatience is far too easy. Still, keeping things to yourself can be frustrating as well. Try to arrive at a compromise wherein you choose your words more carefully but express your discontent nonetheless. Aim to use tense energy to be productive rather than to argue or worry. As the day advances, your focus strengthens. You see the value of pacing yourself, taking everything in before passing judgment. The Moon moves into your social sector today, and you seek friendliness.
CapricornA Mercury-Mars transit can point to tense feelings or mental agitation in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn. Ideally, this aspect encourages you to get a jump on problem areas, but it might also lead to impulsive speech or unnecessary arguments. Make it a goal to let go of negative feelings if they’re not motivating you to improve your life. Aim to avoid jumping to conclusions. As the day progresses, focus and concentration come more readily, making it easier to pace yourself. A bit of strategy goes a long way. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart, encouraging you to define and focus on your priorities.
AquariusIn the first half of the day, it can be too easy for impatience to get the best of you, dear Aquarius, but it doesn’t have to rule you. There is some tendency to bicker or nitpick. Use this energy to size up a situation quickly, but avoid jumping to conclusions. With the Moon in your communications sector opposite Jupiter later today, tensions arise from too many choices or too much information. There can be a tendency to take on so much that you feel pulled in different directions. Watch for getting lost in a sea of information with so many choices that you forget your priorities. Later today, taking time to assess things comes more naturally.
PiscesAim to resist a feeling that you must rush something today, dear Pisces. Impatience can make waves in your life, and while you feel restless, it may be best to avoid random changes. It’s best not to push too hard, particularly with a friend. It could be hard to rely on people and schedules today if the desire for freedom is strong. Today, focusing on your personal goals and values will do more for your happiness than too much attention to external signs of progress. Later today, you can find it far easier to observe and strategize.
