Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies remind you where you tend to fall back on familiar patterns, dear Aries, even if they haven’t worked in your favor. Old habits can be easy to fall back on, but looking for opportunities to clear up debts or settle accounts is a good idea today. It’s not an ideal time to take on something new, but it’s a good time to attend to forgotten or overlooked paperwork or errands that will help you later with money matters. Still, you can feel some restlessness or insatiability today and tomorrow. Try not to overdo or overstate as a way to overcome boredom.
TaurusWatch for a tendency to take on more than your share today, dear Taurus, or for relying too heavily on others when you’d be better off getting things done independently. You’re inclined to keep the peace, but it can lead to gathering resentment or undermining your confidence. Still, you might benefit from looking to the past for answers to problems in the present. Tying up loose ends may be necessary before you can go forward with confidence. You might seek an escape from the hustle and bustle but struggle with a retreat if you get it, as part of you is thriving on interaction. A compromise may be in order!
GeminiToday’s Moon draws your attention to your work, health, daily affairs, and habits, dear Gemini. In these areas, you tend to look to the past for answers to your concerns. It’s a valuable exercise as long as you do it in moderation. Consider whether you’re holding onto something that no longer serves you well, particularly an attitude or expectation. Aim to avoid falling back on old methods because they’re more comfortable if they prevent you from moving forward. As the day advances, you can feel some restlessness, particularly in your social life or your happiness goals and pursuits. While you can be optimistic, try not to take on too many commitments and avoid doing things to excess. It’s best not to speak too soon about a matter you’ll likely change your mind about later.
CancerProgress on a heartfelt interest, such as a love relationship or leisurely pursuit, can be slow today, dear Cancer. However, taking small steps toward achieving your goals can be successful; patience can go a long way. You can feel quite sentimental about an old love or pet project. Looking to the past can be beneficial as you may reawaken a worthwhile pursuit, but consider where you could be holding onto the past in unhealthy ways. At times today and tomorrow, you can have so many wants and needs that you don’t know where to begin! Avoid over-committing and stretching yourself too thin.
LeoIt’s easy to fall back on comfortable behaviors today, dear Leo, rather than challenge yourself or aim to grow and learn. Old habits have a strong pull on you now, and a good deed from the past can benefit you. Using your talents can reap some rewards, but it may also be wise to challenge yourself in a small way. At the same time, it’s best not to speak too soon or jump to conclusions with today’s tricky aspects. Aim to tame overblown expectations. There could be exaggerated news coming in, and a wait-and-see attitude is best.
VirgoToday’s energies tend to pull you into the past, dear Virgo, and it can work in your favor, but moderation is important. You’re not quick to challenge yourself, preferring to fall back on talents and resources you already have, which can be just what you need from time to time. Still, try to avoid enabling or appeasing others in ways that might come back to bite you later. Try not to make promises that can be hard to keep later. Today’s influences aren’t ideal for work or activities that require attention to detail. It may be wise to tame expectations of others, as people can take you on a rollercoaster ride, whether they know it or not. Focus on your own happiness, and disappointments are less likely to spoil your mood.
LibraAim to avoid the tendency to overstate or promise too much just to maintain a good mood, dear Libra. These things can bite back at a later date, so try to keep things as real as possible. Putting too much weight on others’ responses, which can be variable right now, can be a lesson in frustration. While it’s not an ideal time for new beginnings, you’re in a good position to take steps toward clearing obstacles related to money and business. There is a tendency to want to do it all yourself these days, but sharing, trusting, and pairing up to accomplish something is the way to go for the rewards, even if it seems the more challenging route to take at the moment.
ScorpioThere’s a tendency to release something from your past today, dear Scorpio, so that you can start fresh. Aim to let go of stress and tension but watch for the inclination to take the easy way out. Take note if you’re frequently falling back on doing things on your own, even when pairing up or sharing the load would be much better for you. Many things require your attention today, but you are unlikely to be in any mood to attend to business and practical matters. You might also be inclined to overindulge now. Try to find a balance between the need for comfort and inactivity (valid needs!), and the need to tend to chores. Some things can wait, while others are better off handling right away. The tendency to overestimate our abilities is strong today, largely in order to maintain a good mood.
SagittariusStrong memories tend to guide you today, dear Sagittarius, or you make unusual connections. Your observation skills are working overtime. There can be some tendency to seek the easy way out, but with a bit of poking around and self-honesty, you might learn what’s truly valuable to you. You might tie up loose ends as you become aware of delays or matters you previously overlooked that require your attention. Watch for an inclination to promise or imply more than you can actually fulfill. Otherwise, the day is a good one for pursuing favorite pastimes and hobbies and recreation, creative pursuits, learning, and discovery. Aim to keep your expectations of others at a realistic level.
CapricornYou can be more sentimental today, dear Capricorn, and in the mood to get comfortable. There can be a connection with an old friend or strong memories of someone from your past. In fact, what’s new isn’t as appealing as reviving old interests or even relationships. Consider that you could be misjudging energy levels now. It’s easier to putter about rather than really produce with current transits. As such, if you schedule too much today, you might inadvertently set yourself up for disappointment. Even with your indulgent mood personally, you could come up with rich ideas for future applications.
AquariusToday’s energies are strong for a positive focus on the past or tying up loose ends, dear Aquarius. It can be a good idea to clear up old projects, errands, or duties so that you can start fresh later. It’s easier to see which attachments are holding you back from growing and thriving. Still, watch for taking on too much or speaking too soon. You likely have many new interests, particularly those revolving around learning or brushing up on skills, but if you do too much at once, you run the risk of becoming overwhelmed and abandoning ship. Aim to tame the tendency to overreach. Having more of something will not necessarily make you happier.
PiscesToday’s energies tend to show you where you’ve been too attached to a habit on a mental level or regarding attitudes and mindsets, dear Pisces. Aim to use your diplomatic talents in your dealings, but watch for a tendency to please and appease that might later come back to bite you. Aim to handle unfinished business that will help move things forward later. At the same time, stay alert to possible opportunities to advance your interests instead of sticking to the same old comforts. As the day progresses, the temptation to overdo pleasures is strong. While some splurging is good for you, it could stimulate a vague feeling of guilt or regret today.
