Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun has just begun its transit of your solar eleventh house, dear Aries, and a New Moon occurs in this same solar sector today. Take-charge energy is with you, which you can put into your friendships and involvements with groups or teams. It’s a time of inspiration for new ideas and goals and a heartier pursuit of your happiness goals. Your sense of community is strong, and emotional satisfaction can come from your interactions with or support of friends and associates. A healthy level of detachment from your personal concerns is good for you now. It’s a fine time to strengthen ties with others and nurture goodwill, although it’s best to wait a few days to get everything going.
TaurusThe Sun has only just begun its transit of your solar tenth house, dear Taurus, but a New Moon occurs today. You receive a blast of personal energy for pursuing professional goals and taking charge of your career or responsibilities. You’re clearer about putting something behind you in order to move forward. You might begin a new business project or draw up new long-term plans, and you feel motivated to move your business affairs forward. Don’t be surprised if job offers come your way, or this is a time for pursuing new or redefined goals related to your life path. It’s undoubtedly the time of year for paying a little more attention to outside markers, and this can be very useful, but remember to listen to your own heart as you do.
GeminiThe Sun only yesterday entered your solar ninth house, dear Gemini, and a New Moon occurs in this sector today. This lunation should supply take-charge energy for setting plans into motion for new experiences, adventures, and a stronger understanding of your life’s purpose.

You might push ahead with a special project, publication, studies, or personal plans in the days ahead.

CancerThe Sun moved into your solar eighth house only yesterday, and today, a New Moon occurs here, dear Cancer. You can be motivated to gain more control over your life.

With this fresh start, you’re sure to gain incredible insight into which aspects of yourself you need to transform so that you can move forward, feeling more confident.
