Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is strong for getting to the bottom of matters, dear Aries. Healing energy is with you in your communications. Problem-solving with money matters, family, or home life is creative and rewarding. Discussions about strategies with trusted others can ultimately move you forward. Still, a few more days remain of Mercury’s retrograde, making it a good idea to observe before jumping into action. Fortunately, you are in a great position to do so with the Moon’s move into your solar eighth house.
TaurusThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector early today, dear Taurus, stirring a need for order and organization. But the Moon moves into your partnership sector for a stay of over two days, and your social life assumes more importance than taking care of business. Those things requiring broad or overview thinking can benefit today–it’s a great time to soak in information and update your knowledge. Today is strong for arriving at a new understanding with someone, perhaps by reviewing a past matter. There can be some stimulating discussions now.
GeminiThere is a wait-and-see approach to decision-making these days, dear Gemini, and you’re going with the flow today. While this position hasn’t been your favorite, you see its value now. It’s a good time for natural confidence. Mercury is only retrograde until the 18th, and rushing things doesn’t make sense for the time being. Fortunately, as you see past issues in a new light, you learn much about yourself and your needs. Analyzing past patterns can help you make better decisions. There can be excellent ideas and insights forming, particularly about relationships and life-path or career plans.
CancerThe Moon moves into your romance and creativity sector for a stay of over two days, dear Cancer, and you tend to let go of tense topics. Clearing your mind is powerful now. Even so, by later today, you’re ready to discuss or think things through, and the mental refreshment helps greatly. Talking one-on-one, collaborating, and seeking feedback can figure strongly. Rapport is easy and two-way. It’s natural to listen, understand, and support. There’s still some tendency to backtrack or wait for information with Mercury still retrograde for a few more days. For now, there’s good energy for working on refining and editing projects.
LeoIt’s a time when you need to adapt to a daily routine or when the emphasis is on work, service, or health routines, dear Leo. It’s easy to use this energy positively today by organizing the essential systems in your life. There is a freeness to the day, and you can be incredibly clever at coming up with original ideas and charming in your communications. Pursuing answers to practical problems can be enjoyable, and you’re in fine shape to revisit past ideas. Giving some special attention to what you’ve overlooked can figure strongly, and it’s ultimately helpful.
VirgoYou can be entertaining others with your observations today, dear Virgo. Others appreciate your viewpoint and insights. People are responsive and are more inclined to understand what you’re trying to communicate. Today is lovely for creative ideas and truly innovative thinking. Mercury remains retrograde for a few more days, however, and it’s not yet a time for pushing things forward, but you’re finding new ways to approach old problems. You may be waiting for information, but this allows you to reconsider options. You’re not stressing over roadblocks today, and this helps you see the opportunities to learn and heal.
LibraThe Moon in your sign at the start of the day encourages a spontaneous or casual approach, dear Libra. It’s a time to avoid overthinking or overreaching. The Moon’s move out of your sign can help settle and ground you. You might enjoy making plans about family and home/domestic affairs or opening up conversations about or with family. It’s a good time to reminisce and share memories. Decision-making is not necessarily straightforward today as you search within for answers and need more time to draw conclusions. However, without the pressure to push something forward, you find it enjoyable to take your time.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Scorpio, for a stay of over two days. This transit engages your emotions and brings more color to your life. Today’s transits spark your curiosity. You are more communicative, and opportunities to connect and share can emerge. Influences now also spotlight your talent for bringing out the best in others. You are looking back before you move forward, which can be a valuable exercise with Mercury still retrograde for a few more days. Still, an idea now can inspire you and send you on fascinating mental tangents.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into your privacy sector today, dear Sagittarius, which might slow you down a little, likely for your own good. You’re more aware of any tendencies to overload on an emotional level today and tomorrow. Restoring your energy becomes a priority. With Mercury retrograde for a few more days, it’s best not to begin something all-new, as it will likely get off to a slow start, or you might reconsider it later. Today, you’re working on clarifying your thoughts and ideas and getting plenty of space to do so. You’re finding things to stimulate your mind.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your social sector for a stay of over two days, dear Capricorn, awakening your sense of community. Transits today support finding outlets for your desires and meeting with cooperation and support. Mercury remains retrograde in your sign for just a few more days, after which Mercury will stick with you until February 11th, and mental energy picks up strength. For now, you need to look back before you push forward. At the same time, you’re curious and mentally engaged today. Verbalizing can help your decision-making process. It’s also a good time for strengthening ties with a friend or network.
AquariusThe Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, and you’re likely to invest more energy and thought into responsibilities and performance today and tomorrow. While you’re more noticeable than usual, you’re often lost in thought. You are focusing on private matters, past issues, and healing. You’re exploring recent experiences and seeking meaning in hidden places. You’re learning new things today, and your ideas are notably creative. At the same time, you’re rethinking matters from a different perspective.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your spirit sector for a visit of over two days, dear Pisces, inspiring you to change your usual routine and helping you see your life a little differently. Discussions and ideas can be refreshing. Mercury remains retrograde for only a few more days, and this transit has a way of rehashing or recirculating past problems. However, it’s a fine time to refine projects already underway. It’s also helpful for turning your attention to issues you usually overlook. Others show you more appreciation for your input or companionship. There can be a special understanding that bonds you with someone.
