Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt’s not always easy to be sure about what you want early today, dear Aries, or you could fixate on something you think you want but then discover that it’s really not the answer to your problems. Generally speaking, you’re sharing your affections more liberally these days, and you’re looking forward. Today, there can be some frustration with differences in values. You can give off a standoffish vibe, or you could be toying with money or things that you think will make you feel better. Restlessness is likely until you reorient yourself. Still, this is a generally good day for partnering and getting along with others, especially as the day progresses. It can also be revealing as you discover more about yourself through your dealings with others. You feel a stronger desire for harmony, peace, and balance than usual, although getting to these places can involve some disruption!
TaurusGood energy is generally with you for sharing yourself or enjoying in-depth activities, dear Taurus. However, early today, there can be some hesitation to give of yourself as you’re sensitive to anything that feels like others are impinging upon your freedom. Or, confusion about boundaries in a relationship can be prominent. Affections can be intense one minute, then cool down the next. Whether to go after what you want or wait and see if it comes to you naturally can be a dilemma today. Still, as the day advances, good energy is with you for seeing both the details and the bigger picture. You’re in great shape for tuning into areas of your life that you normally overlook but need extra attention.
GeminiThere can be competing feelings regarding the need for privacy and togetherness early today, dear Gemini. It’s not straightforward to see things for what they are or for their value temporarily. Aim to discern between feelings coming from a place of insecurity and those that come from the heart. Something could be leading to a dead-end, which means you should investigate alternatives. However, be careful not to jump into something due to current frustrations that you may one day regret. It’s better to take things easy or one step at a time. Happily, the day is good for entertainment, play, and big feelings, especially as it advances. Your romantic inclinations are stronger than usual, and you appreciate an audience, as the desire to share is with you.
CancerEarly today, sticking to routines, plans, or resolutions isn’t easy, dear Cancer. Vague restlessness can take hold, and your attention may be divided. It can also be difficult to please a friend right now, but you can’t be everything to everyone. With Venus and Jupiter at odds, there can be competing energies pitting your social life or leisure time against chores and duties. The Moon spends the day in your family and home sector, and the urge to get cozy and comfortable is with you. Familiar faces and places soothe most of the time but can be even more therapeutic now than usual. You seek more security and comfort, which can prepare you well for a more outgoing period to come. Today’s good for getting in touch with what’s in your heart.
LeoEarly today, there can be mixed signals to decipher, dear Leo, and you may also be dealing with problems managing your work-life balance. It makes sense to slow down and stall decision-making until you’re clearer about others and your needs. People in your life may be frustrated with your divided attention, and, in turn, you could find others a little hard to understand temporarily. Happily, the day advances with more clarity. Still, the Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and you could have a finger in many different pies today! It might be a good strategy to allow this to happen and wait out a better time for concentration. You are curious and connected, and you might enjoy sharing your ideas and time with someone special.
VirgoA minor challenging aspect between Venus and Jupiter early today can play with our expectations, dear Virgo. In turn, it can lead to some off-timing. You might keep others at arm’s length, or attempts to get close to someone can end up turning you off or stirring up feelings of restlessness. There are better times for intimacy, as people around you are generally difficult to please today, including yourself! Aim to take things slowly as you sort out what you truly want, and give others space to do the same for best results. As the day advances, moderation comes more naturally. You may have a strong urge to settle in, and you’re in a generally positive frame of mind, preferring not to linger on problem areas unless you have the tools to make changes. Earthy, grounding activities can benefit you greatly at this time of the lunar month.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Libra. This transit can bring a pleasant rush of energy to your life and a desire to begin anew or enjoy a new experience. Emotions are more transparent than they have been in recent days. While your communication skills are in generally fine form these days, there can be some problems getting your message across early today, but it’s temporary. It may be best to take extra care to make yourself clear. While handling unfinished business might not seem glamorous right now, it can help reduce guilt or stress levels that come from the nagging feeling that you have things left to do. You can feel in limbo or confused by mixed signals. However, the day advances with more straightforward energy. You may be taking the lead and appreciated for your guidance or initiative.
ScorpioThe desire to accumulate new possessions or beautify existing ones can be strong these days, dear Scorpio, with an emphasis on your solar second house. Whims can take hold early today, however. If you are feeling unsettled, it’s a good idea to get in touch with what’s truly bothering or disappointing you. A difference in values with someone can be an issue, for example, and there can be difficulties relating to others in general, largely due to exaggeration or sensitivity. The Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, signaling a need to pull yourself out of overly competitive or demanding situations so that you can better attend to your inner world. Spiritual matters assume a little more importance to you, or you feel the need to get in touch with your deeper feelings on a matter.
SagittariusWith Venus in your sign these days, your desires are immediate and powerful, dear Sagittarius. Early today, these cravings may not reflect what’s in your heart as Venus forms a quincunx to Jupiter. In fact, on some level, your desires could lead you astray if you’re avoiding things or not quite ready to see what’s in your heart. It makes sense to wait out the big choices if it’s possible now. Giving yourself some room to explore and discover makes sense. The Moon spends the day in your hopes, wishes, ideals, and friendship sector, stirring a need to feel hopeful and connected. It’s not the best time for chores or responsibilities, which may weigh on your conscience to some degree but you’re not interested in going that route right now.
CapricornEarly today, dear Capricorn, energies are somewhat tricky for relationships. You could find yourself at cross purposes with someone without an apparent resolution or compromise. Part of this could be that you are still determining whether you want to pursue something or let people come to you. You can be confused by alternatives temporarily. Striving to make peace with the past is most useful these days, but it’s challenging to see things clearly just for now. Venus forms an awkward aspect to Jupiter in your outgoing solar fifth house, highlighting a discrepancy between two strong drives. One drive is the need to process and take things easy, and the other is the desire to push forward and enjoy yourself more spontaneously. Aim to go slow and figure out what’s in your heart before taking concrete action. Life feels smoother as the day advances. It’s a good time to instinctively know your priorities or how to best manage a situation.
AquariusYour desire for variety is strong these days, dear Aquarius, with an emphasis on your solar eleventh house. Early today, however, a good part of you wants to hide yourself away or keep your observations to yourself. At the root of this is Venus and Jupiter at odds with one another. Interactions can be a little off, or the timing is wrong now. Some doubts or concerns can prevent you from interacting naturally with friends. This transit is only minorly challenging, but you can temporarily feel divided, uncertain about someone’s feelings, or in limbo. With so many things, and possibly people, vying for your attention, it’s not exceptionally easy to know your next step. However, slowing down makes sense until you reorient yourself. Fortunately, the day advances more smoothly. Today’s Moon feeds your spirit for non-routine activities. This is not the time for dull routines, and if you’re stuck in them, it will be important to take extra breaks or find creative ways to revitalize your day.
PiscesEarly today, part of you wants to state your case, and another part would prefer to let things go, dear Pisces. With a Venus-Jupiter minor challenging aspect, a career, public, life direction, or reputation matter could throw you a little off-center temporarily. Promises made now may not transpire. You might attract people to you who take you for granted, and you may need to establish boundaries as a result. If you feel slightly out of balance, your best bet is to slow down and avoid acting on impulses. Some procrastination or uncertainty about your next step is possible. The day advances with a stronger feeling of purpose that energizes you. You’re focusing on layers of meaning and understanding. You’re likely to notice elements of people and situations that you may have missed or seemed hidden to you previously.
