Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first half of the day, you can feel restless if things seem to be standing still, dear Aries. Some ambiguity is possible, but as the day advances, it’s easier to go with the flow. Temporarily backing off from a problem can stimulate new ways of approaching it. Today’s Moon encourages a focus on practical and sensual needs and can be reliable for really getting things done. It’s easier to redirect creative energy into appropriate channels as the day advances. It’s also a time to get out of a thinking rut and consider new ideas, methods, and approaches. You may feel renewed as you discard old ways of thinking.
TaurusYou’re hooking into exciting ideas today and tomorrow, dear Taurus, and enthusiasm is increasing. Communication can spark hopefulness. Still, you could find that your best ideas are coming when you’re going against the grain. The Moon spends the day in your sign, bringing animation to your emotional world and continuing to emphasize your personal needs and independence. You are gathering big ideas and may feel a strong sense of building excitement for upcoming projects. You’re far more focused on progress than on the past. You can have a strong desire to let out any recent pent-up feelings and find some way to pamper yourself. Transits favor sharing your feelings or unique perspective.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Gemini, encouraging you to make room for more rest and time for reflection, which can be emotionally cleansing. Private and emotional matters are in focus and tend to thrive, and communications are especially satisfying–perhaps invaluable. Aim to relax, renew, and recharge, but take advantage of the chance to free your mind with something engaging. There’s certainly a pull towards some level of anonymity or escape as you need a break from the routine and a chance to recharge your energy. Still, there can be a healthy flow and understanding with someone special today. Mentally, you could be breaking through a barrier.
CancerToday’s transits spark much hopefulness, dear Cancer. You’re looking forward. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, encouraging lighthearted connections and conversations. It engages with Uranus and Mercury–bodies that are heading into harmony. Communicating, friendships, and networking fare well. There is something in the way you meet the world that is very appealing and draws people to you. Vibrant, independent energy surrounds you and your social life. Still, it’s a good day for cooperation with others, and new ideas can come through a collaboration or interesting discussion.
LeoToday’s energies favor moving on, looking ahead, and striving toward a motivating goal, dear Leo. You’re also geared up to take care of business or to get some chores out of your way, as you feel better knowing you’ve done something productive. There can be a buzz of excitement around you or your life direction. Good energy is with you for dreaming up creative ideas. You might make some interesting connections as you pursue your goals. Solving practical problems and attention to details of daily existence come naturally and easily to you today.
VirgoToday and tomorrow are excellent for building excitement and motivation, dear Virgo. You’re thinking creatively and enjoying different perspectives. The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, aligning with Uranus and harmonizing with Mercury, and sharing a vision, belief, or idea can be rewarding. Emotional refreshment seems to be about mental engagement today. It’s a strong time for advancing a project or developing progressive new ideas about your next step. Helping to guide someone can be incredibly satisfying now. Conversations can be especially open, or more honesty with yourself can be eye-opening.
LibraWhile something can feel left up in the air in the first half of the day, dear Libra, you’re not easily hung up on problem areas as the day advances. Emotional cleansing can come via honest conversations about intimate matters. Letting go of something — for your own good — is a theme today and tomorrow, and part of this energy is mental, such as through writing something down or communicating. Solutions to home-related problems can be especially unique, and new approaches with family and loved ones seem to be in order. You’re approaching your domestic or inner world in new, helpful ways.
ScorpioThe first half of the day can be on the disorganized side, dear Scorpio, and you could feel you’re getting nowhere for the time being. Minor flaws seem to reveal themselves. If something is confusing now, aim to let time tell. As the day advances, you’re focusing on what’s to come. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, aligning with Uranus while there and harmonizing with Mercury, opening up the airwaves. A conversation or collaboration can be freeing. The ease with which you handle social situations makes you stand out nicely. You might develop inventive ways to advance your interests and projects, and you’re open to ideas from others.
SagittariusThere can be some fogginess in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius. While some misunderstandings are possible, it’s best to redirect creative energy into constructive channels. Things only become sticky when you try to focus a stubbornly tired mind too hard instead of giving yourself some creative room. The lack of clarity is temporary and manageable. In fact, as the day advances, you readily seek and find moments of inspiration. You may be viewing your finances and work or security matters in a new light and coming up with solutions. You’re bringing some magic and imagination to your routine affairs. You’re incredibly open to new or alternative ideas and methods, and information you come across can be helpful or a pleasant surprise.
CapricornToday and tomorrow, it’s easy to break out of your usual ways of thinking, dear Capricorn, and the possibilities in your head are exciting. In the first half of the day, perceptions may be a little fuzzy, perhaps clouded by wishful thinking. Let time tell the truth of a matter. As the day advances, good energy is with you for appreciating someone’s points of view. The Moon spends the day in your joy sector, and you need a change on both mental and emotional levels, such as something fresh to think about or focus on, or perhaps a learning challenge. Sharing ideas can be stimulating.
AquariusIn the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, there may be some mental fog or confusing situations. Vagueness or an inability to focus and concentrate can be annoying. Misinformation can be an issue now. As the day advances, you’re less likely to focus on uncertainties or allow them to rule you. The Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, meeting Uranus there and harmonizing with Mercury, and you’re in good shape for bonding with loved ones or connecting with your fundamental needs. It’s a good time to do some emotional cleansing, but conversation or a mental focus can be what does it. Releasing a problem through writing or thinking it out can figure strongly now. It’s a great day to find inventive solutions to previously stumping problems.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, interactions may be vague or confusing, dear Pisces. However, taking a pause from overthinking things can be useful, and you could find that as the day advances, you’re ready for a positive, different, or unique perspective. Transits stimulate your senses, and certain ideas and plans can energize you today and tomorrow. Even if others are not catching on for the time being, you’re in good shape to sort things out on your own. Still, it’s a great time for studies, networking, and illuminating discussions. You are magnetic today, particularly in your communications. Good ideas flow freely around you, and it feels good to look forward.
