Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus and Ceres meet in your sector of adventure today, dear Aries, and you gravitate to situations and pastimes that feed your spirit, and you’re likely to find them! You may thoroughly enjoy learning or experiencing something new, or an interesting discussion or exchange of ideas gets you going now. The day favors openness to new ways of interacting and cooperation. There can be an exciting project that breaks your usual routine. As the day advances, watch for impatient, impulsive communications and tension related to schedule changes. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and emotions are immediate. Your feelings, wants, and needs are hard to deny today. Watch for taking things very personally, particularly if there are pressures to meet a rule or obligation. Still, it’s a good time to get in touch with your feelings.
TaurusYour intuitive feelers work exceptionally well in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. There can be an important realization or a solution to an emotional or relationship problem now, and it’s satisfying. Caring gestures and interactions with people close to you are in focus, or you become closer to a friend/lover now. You might thoroughly enjoy an absorbing activity, some research, or solving a mystery. As the day advances, patience isn’t as easy. There can be frustrations with people who can’t seem to express their ideas or opinions with consideration for others. Try to keep things in perspective. Watch for hasty actions and communications. Try to direct any excess energy into something you truly love doing. You may find a person, subject, or pastime that excites you or gives you a new perspective.
GeminiA supportive connection is possible in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. It’s a great time to reach out to others if you need help or simply show your care and support, preferably through practical assistance or gestures. It’s also a strong time for applying yourself, especially to communications and creative pursuits. A nice air of competency and reliability surrounds you now, particularly in how you communicate. You can be mainly focused on coming to a balance in a relationship, and negotiations are fair and prosperous. The secret to happiness seems to be balance and patience. Later today, it can be frustrating if you seek to make solid plans. Impulsiveness with money, resources, or relationships can be a theme. With this tendency kept in check, it’s a good time to connect with your wishes and hopes.
CancerIn the first half of the day, you might savor pleasing aesthetics or something that makes daily chores a little easier, dear Cancer. You might thoroughly enjoy a connection with a co-worker, someone you spend time with, or work itself, as Venus and Ceres align in your solar sixth house. You can learn valuable information that helps further your ambitions or supports your health goals. Approaching the world in a more relaxed, creative way yields the best results, although this can be a little difficult as the day advances, as our minds are a little more scattered. With the Moon at the top of your solar chart all day, it can be time to pay more attention to your responsibilities, both to yourself and others. Aim to be patient about following rules, and keep your goals in mind.
LeoIn the first half of the day, you can tap into fantastic energy on creative and romantic lines, dear Leo. You can feel exceptionally creative and warm, and you have a stronger appreciation of your surroundings and your relationships. People are attracted to your helpful, supportive manner or acknowledging and appreciating your unique style. You may very well make a special, quality connection with someone or a project. Later today, it’s all too easy to get into a restless, discontented frame of mind. It’s not the time to have a healthy conversation about something close to your heart. Irritations tend to stem from a lack of control over routines or work. Do your best to center yourself or to direct excess mental energy into something productive. Give yourself some emotional space to sort out your thoughts.
VirgoIn the first half of the day, dear Virgo, paying special attention to your inner world is enjoyable. A warm influence in your home and family sector encourages care of your personal life. It’s a good time to show your concern for others and do some self-pampering as well. Attention to beauty, balance, and comfort on the home front can be satisfying. Low-key activities and settings are in positive focus. Later today, the day demands some flexibility and quickness, but watch for impulsiveness, which is unlikely to serve you well. With the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, you tend to take things to heart. Adaptability brings rewards now, and while you can feel a little impatient, it’s better to implement small, manageable changes.
LibraEnergies in the first half of the day inspire contentment, dear Libra. You express yourself in caring, supportive, and engaging ways, and you can find much to savor regarding your personal interests or projects. Agreements and commitments might be made. It’s a good time to learn more about yourself and the important people in your life. As the day advances, however, it’s easy to feel offended or frustrated, but tensions may boil down to a desire to improve. If you sense that others have too much say in your life right now, you can become quite irritable. There can be some temperamentality if you feel pulled in too many directions. The trick is to get in touch with what you may be resentful about and try to clear the air.
ScorpioIn the first half of the day, influences encourage enjoying comfortable activities, dear Scorpio. It’s also a good time to take care of pet projects or attend to valuables and money matters. Your money sense is terrific now. You’ll gain more satisfaction than usual from pouring more attention and love into your practical affairs. Later today, energies are a little more stressful. There can be marked conflicts of interest. The tendency to be taken the wrong way is strong right now, but nothing that you can’t handle. Today’s Moon encourages you to focus on the little things and the loose ends in your life. Distractions can undermine productivity, especially as you’re excited about a project or idea, and nervous energy is possible. However, you’re motivated, and with extra effort to focus, you’re in great shape.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, Venus and Ceres join forces in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and you can almost feel others’ appreciation of you and your particular style or unique way of meeting and greeting the world. You’re vibrant and intriguing, and you’re standing out pleasantly! Ideas for financial or business matters can be remarkable. You’re a self-starter now, and it feels good. As the day advances, there can be some impatience, however, or some scattered thinking or distractions. Aim to be as flexible and adaptable as possible. Watch for some defensiveness or a tendency to want to prove something. Getting to a compromise and balance may be exhausting but ultimately worthwhile. Pushing too hard for answers can lead to undue stress.
CapricornThere can be joy in quiet and private moments in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn. You might nurse a secret attraction or private relationship, for example, and leaving things a little open and uncertain can feel freeing right now in a relationship. Instead, you might enjoy time to yourself, or a short escape can be just what you need to round things out. There is a stronger emotional investment in your personal life today, and possibly some frustration if things are not going as you’d like as the day advances. There can be some tendency to communicate too impulsively or get quite fired up over a difference in opinion. With the Moon in your solar fourth house all day, you’re inclined to stick with familiar faces and places. Even so, a Mars transit stokes your courage to do something a little more daring. If domestic demands interfere with your personal plans or feelings of independence, there can be some friction, but this can also be a time of creative inspiration.
AquariusThere can be healing, happy connections with friends or your networks or community in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, as Venus and Ceres align in your social sector. You may be nurturing a friendship, or a new connection can be made that shows much promise. Alternatively, this aspect can point to exceptional attention to new goals and plans. This energy is about nurturing something special, whether that’s a connection, idea, or project! Later today, you may not feel on top of your schedule, which can make you antsy. Your best bet now is to take on as few demanding activities as possible so as to avoid the feeling that you’re running behind. Your mind can be restlessly scanning the past for answers, making it difficult to settle yourself. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and your curiosity is strong, leading you to interesting experiences.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, you are thinking very creatively, dear Pisces, and you might stand out for how you treat others and quietly take the lead. You have quite a bit of personal appeal. You might especially enjoy managing a situation or pouring special love into an important project or ambition. As the day advances, changes in plans and schedules may temporarily throw you off your game. The Moon spends the day in your solar second house, helping to steady your emotions. Even so, trying to get the timing right is a lesson in frustration later today, and you can be quick to react. While you gravitate to exploring your practical and physical needs, there are plenty of distractions.
