Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere is a rather strong focus on your mental world in the first half of the day, dear Aries. Life can feel a bit scattered or chaotic, and there can be some miscommunications or possibly abruptness in your discoveries, thoughts, and conversations. Plans can change on you, but it’s just as possible that you’re breaking them, as a change of mind can have you rebelling against your own plans! Avoid jumping to communicate before you’ve considered what you genuinely feel and believe, but do pay attention to ideas that seem to come out of the blue. Avoid making sweeping changes today; learn from what you take in. Changes are certainly in the air, but they may not be clear until a few days from now. A New Moon is about to occur, and it’s best to try to wind down, reflect, and let go instead of rev up.
TaurusThere is electric energy with you this morning, dear Taurus, and an emphasis on news, ideas, communications, and flashes of insight. Issues surrounding career, business, interactions with those in authority, reputation, and life path can be exciting but subject to pressure, rushing, and off-timing. Your desire to take care of business may compete with a sudden urge to be a free spirit. Try not to succumb to pressures to produce an idea or a project so quickly that you skip steps since impatience can be costly today, particularly with a New Moon about to occur. Relationships can be tricky if faith is lacking, and this can be about confidence in yourself. Circumstances today can trigger vulnerabilities and insecurities. The New Moon will help you to rise above small problems, but because the Moon is Balsamic today, it’s a time for letting go rather than revving up. While there is no need to suspend your current projects or plans, it’s not an ideal time to start brand new endeavors.
GeminiWith a Mercury-Uranus square today, dear Gemini, something buried inside you might come out in a random remark. You’re inclined to put your foot in your mouth or jump the gun today, and it’s probably best to tame this tendency. Mental energy may be a little frenetic, and it’s best to ask yourself whether rushing even makes sense since we can sometimes feel pressure when a regular pace will work just as well, if not better. There could be an uncomfortable issue or some moments of doubt. Ultimately, they can lead to improved feelings and relating, but it’s better to explore and observe than to jump to conclusions or decisions based on feelings today. A New Moon is about to occur, and it’s wise to keep things simple. You don’t want the past entirely dictating your future, so aim to focus on letting go of that which you no longer need. This New Moon cycle sends you on an inward journey. Concentrate on letting go and relaxing your mind instead of pushing something forward.
CancerAn unrecognized desire for change can spur a comment that surprises or disrupts in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. Aim to stay flexible and open to a schedule change or a switch of focus at a moment’s notice. It’s best to be aware of a tendency to blurt out provocative statements and tame this if you want to keep things smooth and easy. Tensions and mistakes are more likely if you feel rushed or pressured. You may be craving a deep, serious conversation, but others are just not into it right now. If you’ve been feeling resentful about a relationship situation, this might emerge in the form of tense commentary today. If you can avoid the tendency to move too fast and to live on your nerves, you can come to fascinating insights. While the day has a bit of a rollercoaster feel, you’re set to learn a lot. A New Moon is about to occur, and winding down is important. Take in, and take action later, only when it feels right. Consider ways to improve, enhance, and enjoy current relationships.
LeoThis can be a good time for trying to break free from rigid thinking, but not ideal for solid progress, dear Leo. While it’s an enterprising time for you, in general, today can feel a little scattered. There can be some tendency to burst out with information. The results can be interesting, but you might decide to avoid jumping into or out of something. Even if something communicated today bothers you, it’s best to avoid quick reactions since it’s temporarily hard to connect with your feelings on the matter. If you feel torn between a desire to do your own thing and a desire to include someone in your plans and decisions, try not to rush through since rushing can lead to mistakes. Do your best to take the pressure off today as a New Moon is just about to occur, and you’re generally better off winding down than up. In preparation for the new cycle about to begin, you might envision goals related to your daily routines and health. Consider that you can experience a temporary lull in motivation before refilling with new energy.
VirgoWhile it’s a generally good period for attending to the details of your life, dear Virgo, you may feel overwhelmed by things to do and the flaws you notice today with a Mercury-Uranus square. Instead, schedule changes, surprise news, or other interruptions can figure strongly. Ideas coming to you now can be inspired but not yet fleshed out or mature. With all that’s distracting you today, watch that you don’t jump to conclusions or decisions. The day requires patience, particularly regarding opinions, directions, and instructions. Off-the-cuff remarks are possible, but something you hear can stimulate a new way of thinking, so don’t completely dismiss what’s communicated now. Simply take some time before reacting. Some self-doubt, or doubt about recent undertakings, is natural as the day advances. A New Moon is about to occur, and it’s wise to take the time to reflect and finish up projects that may interfere with your New Moon goals. Physical energy may be low, and there can be a tendency now to avoid the “real world.” It’s time to let go rather than build up.
LibraThinking or communicating can be disjointed or scattered today, dear Libra. There can be surprising twists and interruptions to manage with Mercury in a square aspect with Uranus. You’re mentally stimulated at best and wired at worst! Feedback can be abrupt, or ideas are inspired but not yet well-formed. Aim to take note of ideas coming to you now, and aim to come back to them later when you’re not as frazzled. The “noise” around you can be too chaotic to discern how you genuinely feel temporarily. With a New Moon about to occur, it’s important to avoid major launches and decision making–two things with little chance of sticking. Conserve your energy as much as possible, or invest energy in the moment. Today is important for considering those things, including attitudes, that are no longer serving you well and putting them behind you.
ScorpioIt can be a little challenging to unwind in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, but with a New Moon about to occur, it’s a good idea to do so. Consider ways to update traditions rather than cling to old ones if they’re causing problems, as it may not be worth the energy to hold onto things that are no longer serving you well. Miscommunications with family or a partner can occur, and your attention can be divided at times. Ideas and news may be interesting and exciting, but perhaps uprooting. Schedule changes, interrupted plans, or offhand remarks are possible now. The Moon is Balsamic all day, making it a good time to reflect rather than take action on all-new endeavors. Do yourself a favor and find the time to catch your breath. You’re sure to have busy days ahead, but you can get to a place where you feel more in charge of your time.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, some mental tension is possible, dear Sagittarius, and there can be some disruptions to manage. Schedule changes can certainly challenge you to grow and learn new things, but they can also throw you for a loop. With a Mercury-Uranus square aspect, you’re best off allowing room for spontaneity but watch for communicating about a matter too soon or without enough context. Both personal interests and duties are demanding your attention, and it can be challenging to do any one thing well just for now. It may be best to keep things open. Examine insecurities if they arise, as some self-understanding can put you in a stronger position in the future. With a New Moon about to occur, it makes sense to clear your head today. It’s better not to make any final, important decisions or take on new ventures for now.
CapricornThere can be surprise elements to the first half of the day with Mercury square to Uranus, dear Capricorn. Still, Uranus is called the “awakener” for a good reason, and there can be inspired or revealing moments. It’s better not to put too much weight in offhand remarks, as they are unlikely to come from the heart. Impatience can lead to troubles, making it best to work on taming it. You might take more care with personal possessions while watching for impulsive or poorly considered purchases. The appeal of entertainment or romantic splurges can be great right now, but this could interfere with recent efforts to be more careful and organized with your money. We’re heading to a New Moon, and it’s best to turn inward for valuable lessons. It’s even more important for you to take stock and reflect because tomorrow’s New Moon is in your sign. Concentrate on ridding yourself of attitudes that have been holding you back from personal success.
AquariusThe first half of the day can find you a little tense or wired, dear Aquarius. With Mercury in your sign clashing with Uranus, your ruler, there can be a balancing act between your personal and private lives. This influence requires an open mind and flexibility, as schedules may change or surprises and disruptions can figure strongly. Ideas generated today can be inspired but not (yet) well-rounded. Distractions are likely, and some ideas are a little raw, but you have the time to fill in details later. A New Moon is about to occur, making it even more important not to jump into something new. As well, be sure you don’t keep yourself so busy that you have no time to reflect. The Moon is Balsamic, suggesting that it’s a better time for rest than innovation. Tomorrow you start a cycle that can light up your private life.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, it’s best to be aware of a tendency to move too quickly or speak ahead of yourself, dear Pisces. Holding onto a secret may require extra effort now! Keep yourself as open as possible to unexpected changes to your schedule, and watch that you’re not your own worst enemy by saying or doing things that invite adverse reactions. With a Mercury-Uranus square, continuity of thought isn’t easy, and it can be a bit of a challenge to stay on track. Conversations might touch a nerve. You may be dealing with loose ends or settling accounts for the time being, and while you may not feel the progress, you’re busy clearing the path for a smoother future. A New Moon is about to occur, and today, thinking and processing rather than pushing ahead make the most sense. This is a time for reflecting rather than jumping into action.
