Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesInsecurities related to networking or your social life may crop up today, dear Aries. What or how something is communicated can upset the apple cart. You can always choose to tune out distractions and interruptions to the best of your ability and let things pass. The Moon in your solar second house all day helps stabilize you and turns your attention to practical matters. Even so, there is some tendency to feel in flux today. The Moon aligns with Uranus and then Mars, and it’s a good idea to give yourself and others space and freedom. These influences might fuel your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. Even so, you’re feeling a little bored or tired of the usual routine in these areas, and you’re inclined to think up creative ideas, methods, and approaches. You might thoroughly enjoy working on a master plan or career project, as you’re feeling pleasantly ambitious.
TaurusDecisions made by others seem to go against your plans today, dear Taurus, or indecision is the result of alternatives that seem equally good and bad. Words exchanged now are imperfect. Nevertheless, you’re radiating good energy. While topics of conversation should be selected carefully in spots today, the Moon in your sign aligns with Mars and Uranus, and you tend to go your own way. You’re paying special attention to your feelings, which are particularly colorful at this time. If allowed some personal space, aside from minor challenges, the day can play very much in your favor. There can be disruptions that hint at the need to throw away old attitudes and habits limiting your growth. Self-directed activities fare best but do watch for impatience.
GeminiThere can be a difference in opinion that sticks with you and subtly brings you down today, dear Gemini. Or, feeling a tad in the dumps and uncertain of yourself is possible with Mercury in minor challenging aspect to Chiron. Even so, these feelings might help you to aim higher later. It’s a good time to check your facts and get caught up. Avoid major decision-making, if possible, until confidence returns. The Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, signaling the need to restore your energy, pull back, and heal. Discoveries about your inner world can be exciting and motivating, and a sudden urge to break from the past can come on now. Find ways to seek more of what you want from your life while also taking care of the feelings of people you hold dear.
CancerIt’s a good idea to slow yourself down to better understand your needs today, dear Cancer. There can be sensitivity to issues that might be brewing in your private life. While ironing out these differences seems logical, you may not have the emotional bandwidth to do so, and it makes sense to take a break, which doesn’t mean you’re not making progress. Not everything has an immediate resolution. For your own sake, try to let things go and avoid getting wound up over small problems. The Moon spends the day in your sector of dreams, plans, wishes, and friends, motivating you to connect with your happiness goals or with others. Insecurities or self-doubt can play with your interactions, but it’s a fine day for discovery and experimentation.
LeoAim to discern between feelings that come from a place of insecurity and those that come from your heart today, dear Leo. You might feel that something is leading to a dead-end, and you may want to investigate your alternatives. However, be careful not to jump into action based on current frustrations. This week brings on some rather rebellious energy, and there can be some doubts about recent convictions today. They’re temporary. The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and focusing on goals or setting objectives can be most satisfying on an emotional level–you may very well catch a wave of inspiration. Changing attitudes towards the expectations or opinions of others can lead you to want to do something out of the ordinary. Solo or pioneering efforts can be most attractive right now.
VirgoWatch for oversensitivity to what’s being said around you today, dear Virgo, with Mercury forming a minor challenging aspect to Chiron. Remember that defensiveness in your responses can lead to poor results and communications. Taking care of yourself sometimes means tuning out others temporarily. It’s best to avoid getting to the point of too much information. The Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house, encouraging your desire to discover things on your own, spontaneously. You’re resistant to guidance today. You crave a connection or mission through what you do, experience, and learn. Pushing some mental boundaries can be useful but watch for impatience. You seek emotional stimulation today, and you quite readily find it through recreational outlets as the day advances.
LibraWhile a good part of you is focused on enjoying yourself and finding new avenues for recreation, dear Libra, another part wants to connect, perhaps looking for approval. It’s hard to strike out on your own if you’re doubting yourself, but it’s temporary. There might instead be an issue with too much information that you’re dealing with now. Try not to divide your attention to the extent that you do everything halfway. Fortunately, those things considered to be problems today tend to have little or no staying power. The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, and you’re inclined to go within for healing introspection. While the inclination may be to rush an emotional, financial, or intimate matter, it’s better not to jump too quickly into or out of something this week.
ScorpioWhile you’ve been enthusiastic, today’s energies tend to lead you to second-guess what you hear or even what you believe, dear Scorpio. It’s temporary. Others might take something you communicate the wrong way, and it may very well sting, good intentions or not, or you misinterpret someone’s words. Today is better for testing the waters and letting things unfold, as it’s too easy to jump to conclusions. Learning from misunderstandings can lead to wonderful opportunities, both for self-understanding and a better understanding of someone special. Someone’s feedback might surprise you. If you’ve been feeling held back or limited, you can feel some discontent this week. You may want to do something dramatic to change the situation, but it’s also quite possible that a gradual change can work best for you.
SagittariusThe tendency to reveal a little too much of your plans, or to say the wrong thing, runs high, dear Sagittarius, if confidence in your decisions is dipping. People are a little more sensitive and doubting with Mercury in minor challenging aspect to Chiron, but it’s temporary. You could be feeling distracted or out of step right now, and taking it easier than usual makes sense, if possible. It often happens that after a misunderstanding or disagreement, there is a strong feeling of growth and even a sense of having a new lease on life. The Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house of work and health, and small problems or flaws bother you enough to motivate you to handle them. A sense of moving forward could emerge out of a bit of chaos, and getting things done can help free up your mind.
CapricornAs Mercury and Chiron form a minor challenging aspect, some misunderstandings are possible, dear Capricorn. It’s rather easy to trigger a person’s insecurities. The vulnerability that you may be feeling now could open the door to more compassion and understanding, not only with others but with your own emotions. Effectively, it helps you build a more protective and nurturing environment for yourself. However, it can be a little tricky relating to one another temporarily. Mood swings can happen if you don’t receive positive feedback right away, or you may struggle with doubts and lack of confidence in a decision you feel pressured to make. However, the Moon transits your sector of joy and pleasure, and it’s a generally good time to find release through enjoyable activities.
AquariusToday’s energies favor winding down, dear Aquarius, although it’s also quite easy for your mind to stay active even as you do. Some information coming in can be too much or too superficial so that you’re not getting the complete picture. It may not be the best time to divulge a secret or something too personal about yourself. However, triggered areas are revealing and could even lead to healthy conversations at a later time. As you learn about what makes you feel vulnerable, you understand your needs and tendencies more deeply. The Moon spends the day in your sector of home and personal life, and you seek time and space for centering yourself.
PiscesYou can be confused about alternatives in spots today, dear Pisces, and valuable information can be missing. It’s not easy to see the whole picture temporarily. Perhaps more importantly, you lack the confidence to decide. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, igniting your curiosity. You can be quite excited about learning, even though mood swings or changes in plans can be distracting or disruptive. Aim for some flexibility. Something communicated could get you going, stirring you into action, and while you may not like what’s said, you could be highly motivated to make changes. If you’ve overcommitted to the point that you don’t have the time to grab new opportunities emerging, you’re best off dealing with this now.
