Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou might wrestle with some indecision or restlessness today, dear Aries. It could be that you’re a little too close to a problem to see it clearly, and you may very well discover that the only way to resolve it is to pull back from it to gain perspective. Taking it easy makes sense, and as you do, you can muse about possible next steps and actions. However, today and the next few days are not ideal for hard and fast decision-making. Mercury is about to turn retrograde in your social sector, and although you have an increased interest in what others are doing, saying, and thinking, there can be misunderstandings now.
TaurusCircumstances may be such that you have more decision-making responsibility today, dear Taurus, but your attention is divided. Your thoughts take you to other places, making it a little difficult to enjoy the present. Watch for a situation of having too many balls in the air or trying to process too much information. Choices are nice, but too many of them can feel overwhelming right now. Look for a compromise. Focusing your attention can be a relief as the day advances, and you have a special ability to solve problems as you do. You’re likely to learn helpful things for your career and social prospects. Nevertheless, the Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, and you’re inclined to make extra room for your personal life or domestic pursuits.
GeminiLife may feel a little chaotic at times today, and it’s easy to feel distracted, dear Gemini. Your heart seems to want one thing and your mind another. Streamlining may very well be the answer as it often comes with fewer consequences. You’ll find it a good time to put feelers out and pick up valuable odds and ends with the Moon spending the day in your solar third house. This Moon transit isn’t ideal for focus and concentration, and with the Moon opposite Mercury today, this theme is even more pronounced. You might want to watch for expressing opinions from an overly intellectual viewpoint if the situation warrants a more personal approach. It’s all too easy to misrepresent how you truly feel.
CancerThere is some inclination to read between the lines or overthink something to your detriment today, dear Cancer. You often find yourself prioritizing balance and equality in your relationships these days. Still, another part of you is more concerned with how deep a connection is than the surface dynamics. Events today may highlight this, and as a result, you may feel that you’re of two minds about a matter. Misunderstandings are more likely than usual today and tomorrow–today with the Moon opposite Mercury, and tomorrow because Mercury turns retrograde. If you’re taking a mental disagreement personally, there may be more to the problem that runs deep. Even if your ideas currently lack some details, it’s a good time to let them flow and play with them as the day advances.
LeoWhile you’re motivated to promote harmony in your relationships and personal life these days, dear Leo, it’s not easy to give everything and everyone their due attention today. While relationships are a priority, you’re also taking more pleasure in your health pursuits, routines, duties, or work. Your interactions with others hold tremendous potential for fresh ideas and thinking, but another part of you just wants to handle some things yourself. It may be best to cut yourself some slack and simplify. The Moon spends the day in your sign, bringing more color to your emotional world. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to find an area of focus and work towards a specific goal, and prioritizing puts you in a better frame of mind.
VirgoThere can be some difficulty keeping yourself focused today, dear Virgo. With the Moon in the privacy sector of your solar chart all day, it’s better to honor the need to keep some things to yourself. It’s a time to enjoy some release from ambitions, tension, or pressure so that you can take things easy now. The trick is to allow yourself the luxury! The Moon’s opposition to Mercury today suggests it’s not always easy to turn off your mind enough to relax. It’s been a generally good period for tidying up your life, but it’s important to avoid overthinking and fretting. Temporarily, it’s not easy to feel heard today, but if you aim to pull back from an overly technical approach, it may no longer matter to you as the day advances.
LibraThe Moon in your social sector today inclines you to seek connections or pursue your happiness goals, dear Libra. Nevertheless, you can feel a little torn. It may be that your mind can’t seem to be present, or distractions are plenty. A part of you prefers to focus on fun and self-expression, while it’s hard to deny your drive to be productive at the levels of work or self-care. You may feel slightly off your game and not very understood. While it can be difficult to integrate your needs for mental stimulation and more subdued and focused activities today, it can do wonders for your mood if you manage to do so.
ScorpioMaking a firm decision may not be easy today, dear Scorpio, but with Mercury turning retrograde tomorrow, it may be best to reserve judgment anyway. What you want can feel at odds with what you think is best or most logical. You can also feel a little torn between your desire to diversify or branch out and your drive to focus on one good thing at a time. You could find that conversations tend to be one-way or self-centered. However, the Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and focusing on your longer-term goals can be helpful.
SagittariusYou’re a little more susceptible to distractions today, dear Sagittarius. Uncluttering your mind can help you feel freer. Even so, today and tomorrow are not ideal for hard and fast decision-making. Today, the Moon opposes Mercury, and tomorrow, Mercury will turn retrograde. As this shift occurs, you may not see the whole picture of a matter. Aim to keep your wits about you but avoid overthinking. It can be hard to relax if your mind’s in overdrive. While it may not be easy to reconcile your needs for mental stimulation and family activities today, it can be worthwhile to find ways to combine them.
CapricornYou can feel a little on edge related to money, possessions, or resources today, dear Capricorn. Watch for overthinking things. At the same time, quick decisions made now may be subject to review later. Consider that there can be some distractions to manage. You’d do yourself the biggest favor by pacing yourself. Mercury is about to turn retrograde in your finance sector, and today, the Moon opposes Mercury. You can think one way but feel something entirely different. You can find yourself in demand and enjoying your connections, but you need some space to clear your head.
AquariusToday’s energies tend to highlight the need for balance in your life, dear Aquarius. You may be attempting to please someone and at the same time striving for independence. What you communicate may not match what’s in your heart just for now. Tomorrow, Mercury will turn retrograde in your sign, and while the shift’s occurring now, it’s better to observe and adopt a wait-and-see approach. Even though people tend to try to cooperate today, there can be some disconnects to manage or wait out. Narrowing your focus may get you into a better mood, as too many options can feel overwhelming right now.
PiscesEmotional or verbal disconnects are quite possible today, dear Pisces, especially with people communicating in disjointed ways and not listening well. Aim to take advantage of any opportunity to detox and think without overthinking. Consider that something has to give to balance your life better, particularly when it comes to working and resting, or attending to physical needs and attending to emotional or mental needs. Try to exercise patience in the face of some fickleness or self-centeredness in others, especially with people you work with or for. You might find yourself sorting out and thinking through recent events, looking for clarity. However, with Mercury about to turn retrograde, you may need to wait and see, allowing the decision-making process to unfold.
