Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury has just begun its transit of your friendship sector, dear Aries, sticking around there until January 25th and later, from February 14th to March 9th. This cycle is strong for sharing ideas and your expertise with others. You’re more inclined to reach out for inspiration, and people readily connect with you. As well, cooperation comes easily in group settings. Thoughts you entertain tend to be especially unique or progressive. You are also more inclined to think about favorite causes and long-term aspirations during this period. This Mercury transit can stir some enthusiasm for a dream or pet project. Today is good for teaming or pairing up and coming up with a perfect idea. The Moon joins with Mercury, and exploring new ideas can be fruitful. Great ideas can also result from casual interactions with networks.
TaurusMercury is now transiting your solar tenth house, dear Taurus, stirring your interest in your long-term goals and responsibilities. During this cycle, you may be doing more sharing or communicating and mingling on professional or public levels. People more readily follow your lead or advice. You could feel restless or extra busy at times, but this is mostly a good time for getting your message out there. With the Moon conjunct Mercury today, aim to pay attention to what you’re picking up, particularly related to work and business. Communications can be lively and stimulating, as well as refreshingly open.
GeminiThe Moon moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Gemini, adding a layer of warmth or confidence to your mood. Mercury has just moved into harmony with Gemini as well, after spending a few weeks in an awkward angle to it, and it’s refreshing. Mercury will stick around here until January 25th and later, from February 14th to March 9th. During this transit, expressing yourself and getting your ideas across come naturally. You enjoy positivity in your outlook, thoughts, and conversations. You embrace new ways of looking at problems as you’re tired of old rules, routines, and information. On mental levels, you seek to broaden your horizons, and you might discover new and exciting interests. Today, there may be good news or rewarding conversations. There can be a real buzz of ideas with you.
CancerMercury has just begun its transit of your solar eighth house, dear Cancer, and you gravitate to more profound thought, study, thinking, and conversations. This cycle lasts until January 25th but will recur from February 14th to March 9th. It stimulates a desire for life’s mysteries to intrigue you. It’s a good time for devising strategies and plans and for digging deeply into a topic, although not an ideal period for straightforward communications and transportation. You bring more reason and objectivity to sensitive issues, and you’re especially interested in meaning and context. Conversations tend to be a little more intimate, or the topics on the table are not your regular fare. You’re likely to enjoy interesting insights into inner motivations, behind-the-scenes activities, and secrets as you naturally read between the lines. Today, playing with new ideas is enjoyable. While you are inclined to be a little introspective, the day is good for communication.
LeoThe Moon heads into your partnership sector, dear Leo, and you’re especially sensitive to imbalances in your life, quickly trying to correct them and bring more harmony to your life. Mercury has just begun its transit of this same sector, and in the weeks ahead, you especially enjoy bouncing around ideas with someone. Through your interactions, you get to know your opinions and ideas more clearly. One-to-one conversations are more significant. Your ability to see and consider the other side of the coin strengthens, and this not only helps endear you to others but also allows for a whole new perspective. Mental cooperation is more important to you now. People have a way of jumpstarting your thinking processes at this stage, with Mercury in your partnership sector and the Moon joining Mercury later today. Instincts improve for relating, and you might enjoy a conversation with someone who’s on the same mental wavelength as you.
VirgoMercury has just begun its transit of your work and health sector, dear Virgo, and will continue to move through this area of your solar chart until the 25th. It will return later, from February 14th to March 9th. With your planetary ruler in the area of your chart strongly associated with the sign of Virgo, you can feel very much in your element! It’s a time for focusing on and perhaps fretting about the details of your life. Your thoughts and conversations often turn to work, health, and practical matters. You might seek information about these things, or these issues come up frequently. It’s a decent time for learning new skills, particularly practical ones, and for seeking out information that helps you improve your work, health, routines, and habits. Today’s transits help with clarity as you sort out your feelings and needs. Communication can help center you and relieve your mind.
LibraMercury has just begun its transit of your solar fifth house, dear Libra, where it will stay for a little longer than usual: until January 25th and later, from February 14th to March 9th. Your outlook or attitude is mainly positive, outgoing, and refreshing during this transit. You express yourself playfully, and your sense of humor is in solid form. Ideas flow very well, and your conversations are primarily understood, although during Mercury’s upcoming retrograde from January 14th to February 3rd, this may become complicated. Until then, it’s an excellent time for communicating with a lover, siblings, and children, or it can be a time when thoughts and conversations often turn to love, recreation, and creative pursuits. It is more comfortable and natural to express your ideas and share your creations. You’re also inclined to seek intellectual entertainment. There can be a more vital need for communications and movement in a romantic relationship. Today, you are coming across quite charmingly, and you need some leeway and room for spontaneity. Look for ways to relieve stress, and pay close attention to communications that might point you in that direction.
ScorpioMercury begins its transit of your solar fourth house, dear Scorpio, and in the weeks ahead, you’ll be seeking more security and probably succeeding quite well at the task! There can be a natural and smooth flow of communication with family, although there can be some backtracking when Mercury is retrograde from January 14-February 3. During this cycle, thoughts and conversations often turn to the old days, childhood, home, financial security, domestic pursuits, and personal affairs. You’re in a better position to work out of your home or in home-related fields. It’s also a sound period for researching, writing, finding ideas, and discussing domestic and neighborhood concerns. Today brings vital energy for sorting out your needs and feelings or getting to the root of any recent problems in your personal life.
SagittariusYou’re moving toward a livelier period, generally speaking, dear Sagittarius. Mercury has just moved into your solar third house, and in the weeks ahead, you’re communicating, connecting, and getting out and about more than usual. You’re talkative, expressive, interested, and interactive. You express yourself more flowingly, and you’re more inclined to reach out to others. There can be exclusive news or gossip, plenty of information-gathering, a sense of connectedness or feeling on top of your daily affairs, special errands, or increased involvement with siblings or the neighborhood in the weeks ahead. There can be some complications with these matters later when Mercury is retrograde (from January 14-February 3), but it’s also a good time to sort things out. Today, it’s easier than usual to verbalize what you want.
CapricornMercury has just exited your sign, and it’s now transiting your resources sector, dear Capricorn. This cycle is rewarding for news, ideas, and research about finances, comfort, security, and income. You can come up with very creative ideas for making money and doing business. It’s also an excellent time to develop talents, pursue hobbies for material gain, and establish yourself in a particular field. This period is convenient for putting some of your dreams into motion or fleshing out an idea with practical details to make it more workable or perhaps marketable. However, consider that the first leg of this journey happens until January 25th, but Mercury’s retrograde from January 14-February 3 eventually pulls the planet back into your sign. New beginnings are better when Mercury returns to your resources sector from February 14-March 9. Today, playing around with ideas is enjoyable if there’s no pressure to arrive at a decision or conclusion. It can be a good time to build upon what you have rather than urgently seek something new to do.
AquariusMercury has just moved into your sign, and decision-making is more straightforward than it has been, dear Aquarius. It’s a time when you’re more forthcoming, and you’re gathering information, thinking, and planning ahead, as well as connecting or communicating more spontaneously with others. It’s also a good period for attracting romantic admirers or creative projects your way. You prefer to take the lead when it comes to mental or intellectual tasks rather than consult others or collaborate. Your intelligence plays a more prominent role than usual in your appeal. There can be times when you speak ahead of yourself during this cycle, and you may want to watch for making statements that you haven’t thought through. Otherwise, it’s a good time for feeling more in control of your thoughts and decisions. An upcoming retrograde cycle (from January 14-February 3) can bring some complications along these lines, but it also gives you the chance to make important edits. Today, your words are in the spotlight. You’re likely to find it relatively easy and natural to find channels for expressing your feelings.
PiscesMercury has just begun its transit of your solar twelfth house, dear Pisces, bringing some introspective energy to your life in the coming weeks. This transit stimulates a need or desire to look at the world around you a little differently. You can be more contemplative and less decisive, needing time to digest and process recent events and ideas. Your intuition plays a more prominent role than usual in the decisions you do make. There can be occasional challenges focusing and concentrating on mundane matters, primarily because you’re more interested in thinking about patterns, subtleties, and emotional issues. Today, organizing your thoughts seems particularly worthwhile.
