Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe tendency today is to overthink your long-term plans, dear Aries, and possibly to fret over things that are not under your control. Don’t let this overpower your gut feelings or overshadow your emotional needs. This becomes easier and, in fact, natural as the day advances. Good energy is with you for sharing your plans with someone and brainstorming to make them better. You’re in a fine position to let things unfold as they may. You have a distinctly healing touch to your manner, and your openness makes you especially appealing.
TaurusThere can be some tendency for mental clamor and nervousness as you consider your longer-range plans today, dear Taurus. Try to avoid overthinking and aim to connect with what you want to do so that you can factor your heart in as well. Certain topics don’t do well if they’re overanalyzed. As the day advances, your interactions are open, possibly even healing. You have unique sight into business, career, and future directions. You’re especially appealing and attracting positive attention. Easy conversations and a spirit of openness figure strongly.
GeminiToday isn’t ideal for hard and fast decision-making, dear Gemini. It’s time to approach things a little differently, but this doesn’t have to happen all at once–it’s probably best to pace yourself. Watch for overthinking to the point that you ignore what you feel about a matter. As the day advances, your ability to take it as it comes and forgive and forget dominates. Friendship can improve with bonding through being a little more open than usual. While making firm commitments is best saved for a more clear-minded period, it’s a good time to enjoy healthier, warmer exchanges. Reassurance about a matter can arrive now. You’re attracting goodwill.
CancerIt’s best to avoid living too much in the head today, dear Cancer, particularly as you relate to others. The tendency is to separate from your feelings when connecting or communicating, and this can lead to some confusion or mixed messages. Happily, connecting with your heart is easier as the day advances. You inspire confidence in a subtle, gentle way. Taking a new approach to putting forth your goals is in order now. Pleasant, non-demanding activities shared with special people can be a release from your everyday concerns.
LeoThe tendency to overthink runs high in spots today, dear Leo, and so does the inclination to fret. Handle problems before they take over, but give yourself frequent breaks if possible. It’s not easy to make the right choices or decisions just for now. However, later today and tomorrow bring a stronger spirit of cooperation. Someone’s faith in you can brighten your day. Romantic and sentimental feelings are active right now, and affection is easier to express. Someone’s understanding or reinforcement of your beliefs and ideas can be refreshing. Today can also be good for considering ways to improve your work or income, and conversations about your practical affairs or the information you come across now can be helpful along these lines.
VirgoAim to avoid overthinking creative and romantic matters today, dear Virgo. You need to review and backtrack in these areas, but it’s not as urgent as you might imagine. Today and tomorrow are strong for bringing something special to your work. You’re prioritizing the healing and compassionate side of life. You’re open to fixing things with others, and you’re creative about handling sensitive topics. You are inclined to help someone out, just for the sake of helping, and it’s bound to feel good. With the Moon in your sign, you can feel a strong need for self-nurturing, and it shouldn’t be dismissed! It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time.
LibraThere can be the need to rework a home or family matter, dear Libra, but watch for a tendency to worry, fret, and overthink today–it’s unlikely to get you to a better position. Instead, focusing on using your current resources to their utmost can benefit you now. Your powers of attraction are strong today, and they’re boosted by your ability to rise above petty concerns to see the bigger picture. You may not have all the details of a matter to draw a conclusion, but you can get to a point where you’re content to let the details fill in as you go along. Relationships can be strengthened with some magic in the form of openness and willingness to learn from one another.
ScorpioThe circulation of ideas and the feedback you receive while interacting inspire you today, dear Scorpio. Even if it’s about going in the opposite direction, it’s still a reaction to something you’re hearing. There can be a stronger focus on learning, transportation, projects, and daily affairs for you, although with some complications to sort out in these areas. While discussing non-personal matters comes easily today, with more personal topics, there can be some hesitation about sharing certain information or remorse for sharing too much. As the day advances, it’s especially easy to enjoy creative interactions with special people in your life, and you have quite the eye for value and art. You radiate healing energy that draws others to you. Openness of spirit is endearing now.
SagittariusWatch for the tendency to overthink your money and things today, dear Sagittarius. It’s all too easy to focus on what’s behind you. However, as the day advances, good energy is with you for bonding with someone, but it might involve letting go of the need to know all the details of a situation. Sometimes after a disruption, there is a strong feeling of growth and even a feeling of having a new lease on life, which is the kind of emotion you could be experiencing today. It’s a good time to allow yourself to be a little vulnerable. Opportunities to reawaken talents or parts of yourself that you were too shy to express can arise.
CapricornWhile some introspection is good for you these days with Mercury retrograde in your sign, dear Capricorn, watch for overthinking today. You’re inclined to separate from your affections and feelings when making a decision, which is useful only up to a point! As the day advances, it’s easier to let things flow. Discretion and acceptance can help boost or strengthen a connection. The social side of working through a problem is of greater appeal now, and helping someone out can very effectively give them a message that you care, perhaps even more so than showier displays of affection.
AquariusThe inclination to examine the past for answers is strong these days, dear Aquarius, but while the tendency is to do so analytically, you may benefit a lot more if you engage your feelings. As the day advances, this becomes far less disjointed and far more natural. Others seem to appreciate the qualities you project naturally, and they may be hanging on your every word. It’s a time for basking a little but sharing as well. Your words can be healing, and so can the words you receive in reciprocation. There’s an honest and mature vibe to the day which you fully appreciate.
PiscesThere is some tendency to overthink things today, dear Pisces, particularly related to your social life, networks, and friendships. Try not to let this go too far. You should remind yourself to be tactful if being forthright, as this can extend to conversations. Still, later today and tomorrow, relationships can strengthen with an attitude that you’re learning from one another and through openness with your affections and expressions of concern. Transits boost your feelings, business, and feelings of comfort. It’s a good time for reconciliation or healing and repairing relationships, as well as judging what you need.
