Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon today keeps you focused on goals and responsibilities, dear Aries. However, the Sun leaves this area of your solar chart today for a month-long transit of your social sector. It’s a time of special attention to community, friendship, and hope. The month ahead makes it easy for you to connect, network, and find new avenues for enjoyment. You have a stronger influence on friends and groups during this period and vice versa. Being a team player will be satisfying or rewarding during this cycle. It’s also a good time of year for new ideas and goal-setting, especially for happiness pursuits. Your desire to contribute, socialize, connect, or focus on personal objectives or causes comes to the fore. There is some de-emphasis of career or life-plan goals and increasing interest in finding your happiness. Benefits come your way when you recognize your need for others at this time in the solar year.
TaurusYou’ll bring more strength and personality to your public or professional life until February 18th, dear Taurus. With the Sun moving to the top of your solar chart today, the weeks ahead are strong for adding more structure to your life. It’s a time of the year to set reasonable goals. Your ego and identity tie in more closely to your profession or reputation, performance, accomplishments, and ability to meet your responsibilities. As long as your needs for approval are balanced and moderate, they can serve a useful purpose. It’s a good checkpoint period. You could come to a high point of the year with your career or reputation, or the motivation to reach your goals is high during this month-long cycle. Today is a little tricky for communication–there can be some blunders. However, your mood is upbeat.
GeminiA new solar cycle begins today, dear Gemini, and it puts the spotlight on activities that break you out of the usual routine and allow you to feel connected with life and spirit. This month-long cycle is refreshing; it can bring opportunities to learn new things and participate in activities that renew your spirit. This Sun transit of your solar ninth house lasts until February 18th, and it points to a more outgoing phase as it awakens your forward-looking, exploratory nature. The weeks ahead are excellent for nurturing your mind, body, and spirit with different activities, viewpoints, ideas, books, courses, and connections with people who have different perspectives. Your aspirations and ideals are stronger driving forces in your life at this time of the year. Today can feature a disconnect and some indecision. However, the Moon’s transit of your solar eighth house helps you get to the bottom of a matter.
CancerThe Sun begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Cancer, where it will visit until February 18th. This sector rules sharing on intimate and financial levels. Questions of support, deeper dynamics in a relationship, and trust can emerge during this cycle. What lies below the surface of matters is more important to you than what you see right in front of you, making this a potentially valuable time for research, analysis, investigation, and counseling. In the weeks ahead, your drive to understand the meaning of your relationships and to get to the bottom of matters is powerful. You might rid yourself of a bad habit or attitude and gain more personal power and a stronger sense of accomplishment. Changes, whether inner or outer, remind you that you’re growing, learning, and transforming. There can be an increased focus on intimate connections and sharing, or financial or emotional support is an important topic in your life in the weeks ahead. Today’s transits are tricky for getting the right message across. It’s best to wait and see. Consider that tomorrow’s New Moon will set you on a new path.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, dear Leo, and your focus is on work, duties, and routines. However, the Sun moves out of this sector of your chart and heads into your partnership sector for a stay until February 18th. This cycle brings your need for others to the fore in the weeks ahead. Relationships are in strong focus, and you’re likely to discover yourself through feedback or interactions with someone special. The challenge now is to find a balance between independence and accommodation. There can be special attention to negotiations and self-expression through your relationships. You’re also more sensitive to imbalances in your life now and may seek more harmony. It’s an ideal time to examine your expectations of others. Today’s transits are tricky for communications, but you can find clever workarounds.
VirgoThe Sun moves into your work and health sector today, dear Virgo, and will stay in this area of your solar chart until February 18th. During this cycle, you take more pride in your work, and as a result, you tend to perform better. You might discover new ways of approaching your work or managing your health. There can be a strong focus on the details of daily life, including errands and paperwork. Schedules, habits, and organization assume more importance, making this cycle especially useful for getting your life into smoother working order. New information or circumstances can arise that motivate you to lead a healthier, more organized, and more productive life. Today’s Mercury-Mars transit can point to minor inconveniences, largely due to misunderstandings or incomplete information. Fortunately, the Moon’s transit of your sector of joy has you looking for the benefits.
LibraThe Sun moves into your sector of self-expression and creativity today, dear Libra, and will continue transiting in harmony with your sign until February 18th. Enjoying and expressing yourself in fulfilling, heartwarming ways are in strong focus in the weeks ahead. It’s a time for paying extra attention to your needs for creative expression, drama, romance, leisure, entertainment, and play. Good energy and inspiration are with you for pleasures, hobbies, and love. You’re more inclined to embrace and share your talents, abilities, and affections. You also more readily seek feedback and reinforcement in the upcoming weeks. Today’s Mercury-Mars transit can point to timing that’s a little off, and mishaps or misunderstandings can magnify. However, it’s also a day when you’re more creative about getting along and finding your way.
ScorpioThe Moon spends today in your communications sector, dear Scorpio, and the need to stay connected seems to dominate. However, after a month’s stay, the Sun moves out of this sector and heads into your solar fourth house. In the weeks ahead, the comforts of home and family draw you more than usual. The Sun will stick around here until February 18th, and there can be potent reminders of your roots, foundation, and closest ties. You’re bringing healing energy, pride, and organization to your home life and family relationships. It’s also a time for getting into close touch with what’s in your heart. It’s not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun’s journey through your chart, but it’s solid for establishing a sense of identity, comfort, and increased self-knowledge. Security needs are your priority right now!
SagittariusThe Sun moves into your communications sector for a month-long transit, dear Sagittarius, where it illuminates your mind and your connections to others. The weeks ahead are excellent for branching out and learning new things. Because demands on you–and your own interests–can be diverse at this time, it can be challenging to work on any one project with an exclusive focus. Even so, it’s a great time to dabble in various projects and gather interesting information tidbits. Expect everyday affairs to take up much of your time in the coming month. The Sun here tends to keep you busy and on the ball. Today’s Mercury-Mars transit can produce a misunderstanding or difficulty in coming to a solid conclusion. However, it can also point to a resolution.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Capricorn, but the Sun ends its yearly, month-long transit of Capricorn. Emotional needs are in the spotlight today. The Sun transit, lasting until February 18th, is strong for building upon recent ideas and discoveries. This grounding cycle favors activities that remind you of the importance and beauty of the moment. Security is a driving force for you. You’re taking stock, attending to your valuables, and getting a better sense of what you can accomplish. Your view of your capabilities is realistic during this stabilizing transit. You’re likely to clearly see the steps you need to take to improve your finances and take charge of your earnings. Your ability to provide for yourself is highlighted now, and you can be more motivated than usual to build your resources. Watch for defensiveness that blocks communication today.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in an undercover area of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, and the tendency is to lay low, wrap things up, and reflect. However, the Sun moves into your sign and will be your guest until February 18th, boosting your confidence and visibility. You may feel as if you are coming out of the shadows in some way in the day ahead. Ideally, you’ll have had the time to process and digest recent events, and you bring a more rested “you” into this new cycle that puts you in the forefront. If you’ve wanted to make positive changes to your image, this is an excellent time to do so, especially once tomorrow’s New Moon is solidly behind you. You have more impact and personal presence during this cycle. It’s a time for seizing the day and shaping your life as you’d like it to be. This solar cycle emphasizes your personal needs, personality, plans, and attitude toward meeting and greeting the world. You are regaining your initiative now with the Sun in your sign.
PiscesWith the Sun’s move into your solar twelfth house today, dear Pisces, you’re entering a period of the year when you benefit from more downtime, personal space, and time for reflection. It’s a preparatory period before the Sun enters your sign next month, when a new cycle begins. However, it’s also an important cycle of its own. It’s a time for extra attention to mental, emotional, and spiritual health. You may be taking more time away from the demanding elements of your life, and you’re more aware of the psychic undercurrents around you during this period. During this cycle that lasts until February 18th, there can be attention to the past and tying up projects that have run their due course. Ideally, you’ll come to some important conclusions and wrap up things that have fallen by the wayside, serving to free up your mind. You may have difficulty seeing yourself as others see you temporarily, and decisions may require more time than usual. If this is the case, they can probably wait! Today, watch for misplaced commentary for best results.
