Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re more expressive today, dear Aries, and you find strength in being self-reliant. Today’s Moon encourages you to explore and develop your independence. Still, watch for impulsive actions, but consider anything revealed in the heat of the moment since it can be important. Conversations later today can be useful, with the planet of communication, Mercury, at the top of your solar chart and harmonizing with steady Saturn. Others lean on you or admire you from afar, particularly for your sound mind and trustworthiness. If possible, focus on tasks that require discipline and order or a narrow, precise focus, as you are more suited to these things right now. Tie up loose ends and tidy up areas of your life that may be causing you guilt. It’s an excellent time for drawing upon experience and wisdom and applying it to a current problem. You’ll find it easier to focus on your priorities more attentively than usual. Dealing with responsibilities rather than hiding from them is satisfying right now.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your solar chart’s introspective, play-it-safe sector, dear Taurus. It encourages you to give due attention to your inner world. Aim to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt to clear your vision. Later today, you have a clearer head and a stronger sense of what makes sense and what may not be quite as valuable.
