Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in a more positive frame of mind these days, generally speaking, dear Aries. While your enthusiasm is strong, do watch for jumping too far ahead of yourself or borrowing from your future–drawing upon savings meant for other goals, for example. Avoid stress. Jupiter’s square to Uranus occurs today, although its influence is strong and lasts. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change. If you carefully seek opportunities, you might enjoy more confidence and faith, spurring you to do something a little different, socially or financially. Watch for decisions that stem from restlessness rather than need. You might also want to tame impulses to spend too much, too soon, or frivolously. Uncertainties with money or feelings of security can be affecting your plans, friendships, or happiness pursuits. The Moon spends another day in your privacy sector, suggesting a continued need to rest or reflect.
TaurusToday’s Moon transit continues to emphasize your ideals, happiness goals, and social urges, dear Taurus. A Jupiter-Uranus transit points to a bit of restlessness or a rebellious theme. Your ambitions, career, or reputation matters are in stronger focus with Jupiter in your solar tenth house. However, these things can clash with your growing desire for more personal independence. Challenges between your personal goals and the demands of your career or larger goals are possible now and this week. The urge to expand your worldly goals is great, but you are also intent on a certain level of freedom. Your luck is generally good but pushing too far is not advisable today. The tendency to go over the top is strong and can be an agitating factor, potentially even ruining a good thing. It’s important not to be reactive — know what’s inside you and what’s in your heart instead of simply reacting to situations and people, which puts you on the right path to true independence. Embrace change, but be wise with your choices. Avoiding taking on too many new endeavors or responsibilities is vital for keeping things in check.
GeminiToday’s energies are good for considering your longer-term goals and responsibilities, dear Gemini. Still, a Jupiter-Uranus square tends to stir rebellious feelings or a strong need for progress and change. You’re seeking new horizons on mental levels, and you might discover exciting interests. There can be some side-tracking as you yearn for something more than just mundane existence. Watch for a tendency to overlook the beauty of the moment in search of even greener pastures! Knowing this, you may be able to capture and enjoy an excellent opportunity and avoid going too far with it. Underlying tension and discomfort with the status quo can lead to impractical thinking, unnecessary arguments, and rash decisions. You might wrestle with a belief or commitment that is stopping you from exploring certain freedoms.
CancerThe Moon transits in harmony to your sign today, dear Cancer, boosting your spirits and mood. With Jupiter square to Uranus, there could be some sexual or power-related undercurrents that disrupt a friendship this week, or a relationship with a partner could intrude upon your enjoyment of friends and groups. Surprising events surrounding a relationship can occur. It may be that, to move forward more freely and happily, you have to let go of a need to control your feelings and what others know of you or fear of betrayal. However, some dissatisfaction could very well lead to new developments and improvements or the courage to resolve a problem. You’re exploring the ability to detach a little and enjoy non-committed, light, and pressure-free connections with others, and this can certainly contrast or even clash with your intimate life. Erratic people, surprising events, or unpredictability in your social life, with associates, or with business income can be disruptive to this oasis.
LeoToday’s Moon transit continues to support a reflective mindset, dear Leo. A Jupiter-Uranus transit points to some possible tension or restlessness this week, peaking today. The demands of a partnership might clash with your career goals or responsibilities and obligations to the outside world. You’re taking more pleasure and interest in your relationship, and your more worldly affairs may not always fit in well with this trend. Some restlessness can lead to agitations, or you can be particularly sensitive to feeling confined or limited regarding a relationship, career, or reputation matter. While you might want to rush a decision, more research may be necessary, so try to pace yourself. A truly good plan will still look good after a few days! Your ideas, particularly business ones, are incredibly innovative and progressive right now, but moving forward in your career or becoming a freer spirit involves some adjustments.
VirgoThe Moon transits your partnership sector again today, dear Virgo, and you’re more inclined than usual to take into account others’ feedback. Since you have a lot on your plate, it’s important to consciously avoid scattering your energies this week with Jupiter square Uranus. Or, watch for pinning all your hopes on one thing. You have a strong drive to get your daily affairs in order and perform mundane tasks, but your quest for something higher or more adventurous seems to compete. Tone things down a notch and recognize that patience will help prevent sloppiness. You can experience a stronger need for time away from your duties, either to take care of yourself or others requiring care, or the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself. A new worldview is changing your approach to your work or routines. Aim to be flexible and mindful.
LibraToday’s energies support taking care of various tasks or chores, dear Libra, as this can help clear your mind. A Jupiter-Uranus square occurs now, and it can stir things up or throw in some surprises to your week. It can point out a conflict between your pursuit of pleasure and your need for more absorbing activities. You could find yourself acting upon impulses that seem, on the surface of things, beyond your control. You could be searching for ego-gratifying experiences, which may not sit well with others or could leave you feeling unsatisfied in the long run. Unsettled financial matters could also get in the way of your desire to indulge in extra-curricular activities. The desire to grow and improve is valid, but you can’t afford to take on everything at once. People may be bringing surprises or changes to your intimate world or your financial situation, or you can experience a very sudden urge to make changes. It’s best to avoid jumping into or out of something too quickly.
ScorpioThe Moon harmonizes with your sign today, dear Scorpio, and emotions flow a little more smoothly than usual. Still, there can be a rebellious or unpredictable theme to the day with Jupiter square Uranus. Your need for emotional or psychic space may run in contrast to needs in a close relationship, or family and partnership can be draining you as they seem to clash. Erratic energy in your relationship world could impact your sense of security. Watch for impulsive behavior–there could be a lot of unnecessary pressure on you to make a decision. To gain freedom in one area of your life, you seem to need to release restricting attachments and work on letting go of the fear of instability. Look for ways to feel freer that don’t disrupt your life.
SagittariusThe Moon spends another day in your solar fourth house, dear Sagittarius, encouraging your commitment to rest, safety, and security. Still, there can be some tensions related to having too many balls up in the air as Jupiter, your ruler, forming a square to Uranus. Aim to identify signs of information overload–you tend towards over-thinking this month. Your curiosity is insatiable at this time, and this could add some stress to your life. It would be wise to slow down a little. Don’t pressure yourself to know everything, or you will end up so scattered and tense that you don’t absorb any topic very well. A chaotic daily schedule or erratic approach to your routines can be problematic, and it’s a good time to see how it might limit you in other areas.
CapricornThe Moon spends another day in your communications sector, dear Capricorn, drawing out your curiosity. You tend to seek mental refreshment and movement. Willingness to embrace change is the key to success with finances with Jupiter square Uranus, but it’s essential to avoid going too far with this. You could experience clashes between the desire for security and a stable income and your needs for entertainment and pleasure, or possibly your romantic life. Expanding your resources is vital to you now, and so is taking a few risks and enjoying yourself! It can be challenging to accommodate both needs at once. As well, excitement in your romantic and social life may distract you from increasing your earning power. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid rash behavior. This is a time when authenticity is most important to you, but you can struggle as your urges and needs for love, spontaneity, and creative expression clash with a strong desire to settle in and get comfortable.
AquariusWhile the Moon’s transit continues to highlight your need for stability today, dear Aquarius, a Jupiter-Uranus square stirs things up. The urge to break free from limiting situations in your life is strong, but they could clash with your needs for security and familiarity. Obligations to family or insecurities arising from disruptions on the home front seem to interfere with your strongly independent streak. It’s possible people close to you feel threatened by your newfound displays of freedom and independence. Even so, you’re learning to open up more. Try not to instigate change just for the sake of change, and avoid being rash, reactive, or abrupt for best results now.
PiscesThe Moon spends another day in your sign, dear Pisces, and you can find yourself more spontaneous and ready for new beginnings than usual. A rather nervous Jupiter-Uranus square today can aggravate some indecision or tension but avoid the temptation to jump into decisions blindly. A new vision of your future can excite you now, and the details will have to follow later. You can experience a real surge of motivation to resume or take on new projects. Consider that your interests are plenty, but your time is limited! As well, avoid putting so much pressure on yourself to get something done that you end up impatient and frustrated. There can be times when you feel a little scattered or when dabbling can leave you feeling overwhelmed these days. Be sure you make words work for instead of against you. Your timing can be a little off if you can’t quite trust your instincts and intuition.
