Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, dear Aries, and some extra rest or a reprieve from recent demands or competitive life situations would be ideal. Life can sometimes move quickly, and our minds absorb much, but this Moon transit helps you catch up emotionally by processing and digesting recent events and feelings. Look for ways to better understand yourself and connect with your spiritual needs. Early today, feelings about money and possessions can fluctuate. You must first learn to define what is yours before you feel confident about giving to and sharing with others. You do best when reaching out beyond your usual bounds these days, so aim to deal with fears of change to move past them. While you’re inclined to withdraw in some ways today, happy connections with others can figure strongly. It may be that someone encourages your independence and self-confidence, or that you help guide someone, and it’s rewarding. Your outlook is positive and productive.
TaurusEarly today, there can be a disconnect or moodiness, dear Taurus, with Venus forming an awkward angle with Uranus in your sign. While there can be some confusing signals coming from someone close to you, you’re learning much about your most intimate needs. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, making it a generally good time to approach others and enjoy simple, straightforward connections. People are drawn to you quite naturally, and as the day advances, you might find that attracting resources from outside sources comes more easily. It’s a good time to work out money problems or other issues of sharing with a partner, and this is especially true this week. While there can be some confusing signals coming from someone close to you early today, once past that, it’s a strong time for repairing relationship woes, if necessary, or of coming to a better understanding of your relationship situation.
GeminiEarly today, you could feel a little caged in, dear Gemini. It’s a temporary feeling, and it’s best to put worries about your past behind you so that you can better enjoy the present. However, the Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and you’re particularly focused on your goals and ambitions. As the day advances, energies are good for building your faith and confidence, as well as for making or boosting connections. It can be a prosperous period for love and friendship–you’re cooperating with others, and they’re returning the favor. You seem to more easily attract people who are supportive or who encourage your happiness goals into your life. You fare particularly well in one-to-one situations — with a partner, counselor, or the like.
CancerWith a Venus-Uranus quincunx influencing early today, dear Cancer, aim to discern whether your interactions are empowering and encouraging, or if they leave you feeling drained. You might consider ways to keep yourself busy, absorbed in things you love doing, so that you are not as vulnerable to the ups and downs of your social life, and embrace a greater sense of peace. The Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, and there can be a stronger need to escape the usual routine. The goal may be to refresh your spirit. As the day advance, it’s a strong time to make connections on practical levels, particularly with people or information related to career, work, health, and business goals. You enjoy helping others, and others tend to offer encouragement or insight that benefits you as well. There is a distinctly cooperative feel that lifts your spirits. With a stronger sense of well-being, you feel inspired to do your best.
LeoEarly today, you could feel on the fence, dear Leo. New attractions and desires can abound but may not settle in for the long term. Emotional outbursts, rebelliousness, or impulsiveness are tendencies now if you’re feeling stressed. Take a deep breath and try to tackle things one at a time, step by step. Fortunately, this becomes abundantly more straightforward as the day advances. In fact, it can be a good time to make connections related to romance, creativity, publishing, writing, legal affairs, entertainment, and education. You might connect with someone who encourages your spirit and vision. The desire to grow, improve, and move ahead is prominent. There is easy, comfortable, and comforting energy for relating, creating, playing, and sharing.
VirgoEarly today, there can be some tension and indecision affecting your mood, dear Virgo. You value familiarity in love with Venus in your sector of home and family these days, and can sometimes feel a little off center if schedules change or plans are disrupted. Right now, expect the unexpected and aim to be flexible. You may be unsure whether you want to play it safe for go out on a limb. There tends to be a natural gravitational pull towards relationships and partnerships with the Moon in your partnership sector all day. As the day advances, cooperation becomes far more natural–there’s no need to force it. People closest to you seem to be your biggest supporters right now, or you might make helpful connections with others related to finances, real estate, home initiatives, family, and intimacy. Emotional bonds can strengthen–it can feel good to get in touch with fears and insecurities.
LibraEarly today, it may be best to take a step back to observe your interactions, dear Libra. Read too much or dig too deeply, and you will only get yourself into sticky territory. This can be revealing if you’re aware, but perhaps a little disruptive if you’re avoiding deeper issues. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and you’re inclined to tidy, focusing on the smaller problems in your life that may have taken over! Still, you can learn a lot about your relationships and your own needs, wants, and desires as the day advances. Good feelings tend to be reciprocated, and you can feel especially supported regarding your ideas and interests. There can be a strong sense of mutual harmony and a general boost in peaceful feelings with and through others. You might make helpful connections related to education, personal interests, communications, and transportation. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback.
ScorpioEarly today, there could be a disconnect, or some restlessness stirring, dear Scorpio. Try to immerse yourself in things that you love doing rather than depend on things going as planned. There can also be a strong desire to spend on clothes, things, and entertainment, or anything that makes you feel comfortable, secure, and pampered. Of course, it’s important to consider the future if you do, as comfort in the present may not be worth longer-term feeling of insecurity or worry over resources. Fortunately, the Moon is in a fun and playful sector of your chart today, keeping things light. As the days advances, people seem supportive of your goals, or at least cooperative. This is a generally good time for making connections with people related to finances, work, or health, such as co-workers, employers, bankers, and health-care. It’s a good time for an easy, comfortable pace. With less pressure or stress, you feel all the more productive.
SagittariusEarly today, you might crave things, activities, and pleasures that are different or reflect your inner unrest and need for change, dear Sagittarius. However, once you get in touch with your heart, your restlessness will dramatically decrease! You may be struggling with your seemingly at odds needs for closeness and intimacy and your desire for independence. The Moon’s transit of your sector of inner security brings out the homebody in you. Familiar methods, people, and situations appeal most, as you need some downtime. As the day advances, your desire to connect or express yourself gets a boost, and your popularity can bump up a notch, as well. You get a strong sense that you can move beyond blockages. You’re also recognizing the value of gathering information from various sources before pouring your energies into something particular.
CapricornEarly today, people may surprise you or make changes that can be a little disruptive, dear Capricorn, but nothing you can’t handle. In fact, there can be interesting detours that result from missteps. To be careful, avoid behaving erratically in your relationships and instead attempt to get to the root of any unrest stimulated now. It’s best not to make hasty or rebellious decisions. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, increasing your curiosity and desire to reach out. And, as the day advances, cooperation comes more naturally. You benefit from activities that connect you with your feelings and those you care about, and there can be rewards in your interactions related to family, health, or counsel.
AquariusEarly today, inner restlessness can lead to overindulgence, dear Aquarius. Try not to speak too soon of unrest, as you may simply need a change of pace. The Moon spends today in your resources and worth sector, and you pay more attention to the practical side of your life. You want to get comfortable! As the day advances, you’re in great shape for connecting with people who are supportive and helpful. You’ll find that diplomacy takes you far, and mutually beneficial relationships are in focus. Artistic and romantic endeavors are favored. You attract and draw in people with progressive ideas and attitudes right now. Friend or group connections and networking can be empowering now. You are likely to enjoy happier moods, bigger thinking, and opportunities to expand your reach.
PiscesWith the Moon in your sign all day, dear Pisces, emotional needs are loud and clear. If you need to pour your heart and soul into an important project, later today is strong for doing so. However, early today, there can be some feelings of unrest and some off-timing socially. It makes sense to try to get to the root of any unusual desires that come over you, as they may simply be a symptom of the need for a small change in your relationships or patterns of relating. Later today, connections with people related to business, government, and banks can be especially beneficial. You might bond with someone over shared fundamental values or business ideas. There can be an advantage gained in business, particularly through friendliness.
