Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your reputation sector, dear Aries, putting on the pressure to perform and do your best. Today’s Sun-Uranus square can too easily find you rushing or feeling rushed, however. If you haven’t recognized a need to make changes in your practical affairs or social life, you can feel tense now. Still, it can be a vital awakening to new ideas and possibilities for improving your methods, income, and relationships. People around you can be emotionally excitable, and schedules may not be honored, which can be distracting. However, discussions and ideas emerging now can help create turning points, even if they’re on the provocative side.
TaurusYour ambitions are strong, and your need for accomplishment is particularly compelling at this time of year, dear Taurus. Still, some of these drives seem to be running counter to your campaign to be yourself, express your independence, and live authentically. The results of this clash may only amount to a bit of tension, or it can be more disruptive. For best results now, it’s best to avoid abrupt moves or dramatic stands until you process your feelings and all that might happen if you do. Consider ways to make changes without making too many waves. Watch for a defensive, impatient, or provocative manner that instigates rather than takes charge. There’s a real tendency to challenge authority or tradition, but results may not be favorable if you do so too reactively.
GeminiWith today’s Moon transit, you’re seeking more depth from your experiences and activities, dear Gemini. Still, there can be times today when your attention is divided, as much as you want to focus, and it’s not easy to concentrate. Aim to tone down rough edges. In truth, the routine can seem exceptionally boring or restricting to you today. Instead of working on autopilot, however, try to satisfy your desire for something different by trying a new style or discovering something new to learn. While you likely need to make a change, it’s better not to be abrupt about it, as this approach can backfire, potentially causing more trouble than you need.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Cancer, and you can be more relationship-focused than usual. Today’s transits favor new approaches and flexibility. If you can avoid the tendency to move too fast and live on your nerves, you can come to fascinating and possibly prophetic insights. Keep your feet on the ground, though, so that you can get there. Surprises or changes in plans can lead you to adjust expectations and attitudes. If you’re feeling especially tense or restless, try to channel excess energy into a productive pursuit that you know serves you well. Investigating new approaches and experimenting with new methods can satisfy an itch for doing something different and unusual. What’s most important now is that you learn more about yourself and your desires and feelings to make better decisions later.
LeoToday’s Sun-Uranus square can be revealing but a bit disruptive, dear Leo. This transit puts your career/reputation sector in conflict with your partnership sector, and the resulting tension can be frustrating but can also stir a meaningful change. It’s possible there’s tension with a partner, parent, or authority figure. Others can seem especially demanding, or you’re expecting a lot from them! There can be insensitivity, coarseness, or impersonal energy now, and it’s best not to play into it. Being abrupt or reacting too quickly can lead to unnecessary trouble or misunderstandings. However, there may be a matter that needs your attention, and a sense of moving forward is with you. Aim to find ways to enjoy yourself without counting on someone else, but be open to learning someone’s perspective. The Moon is in your sector of service all day, and you can feel the need to sort out your life in small but powerful ways.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, dear Virgo, and you crave some lightness and fun. Still, since you have rather heavy planetary guests in this sector of your solar chart these days, even the light side of your life can have a serious tone. Today’s Sun-Uranus square can test your patience in spots, particularly regarding opinions, directions, and instructions. The desire to perform, work, and excel in your work or with your health and routines is strong currently, but it is clashing with an equally compelling need to explore, learn, and enjoy the benefits of spontaneity and freeform learning and living. Something you hear might stimulate a new way of thinking, so don’t disregard communications altogether, but do take some time before reacting. Fortunately, creative energy is abundant, even if it can be challenging to tap at times. Try to make something useful of this excess energy. For example, you may stumble upon a new way to approach an old health or work problem from interrupted plans today. Centering yourself can help you make the best of it.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Libra, inclining you to stick with familiar or secure situations. This helps you replenish emotions and heal you in small but significant ways. Still, today’s Sun-Uranus square can leave you feeling a bit on edge in spots, particularly related to creative projects and intimate relationships, and especially if you don’t know where you stand in a situation or with someone. Try to remain flexible and avoid sticking stubbornly to old methods or patterns of relating. While you are a person who does play nicely with others, you may need to consciously pull your energy away from tense situations and let go of stress when possible. It’s usually wise to examine your reactions if they come on suddenly.
ScorpioYou can have difficulties concentrating in spots today, dear Scorpio, as you may feel pulled in several directions. With today’s Sun-Uranus square, it’s unclear where you’re heading or your next step. Someone in your life could surprise you, or there could be problematic competitive energy with (or between) family or a partner, making it difficult to relax or unwind. You might instead feel torn between wanting time to yourself and craving companionship. Keep yourself open and flexible because unexpected change can sometimes help you move forward, away from bad habits! You might discover that focusing on the moment is best just for now, and worrying too much about your next step can be a waste of energy when you are uncertain of the final destination. As the day advances, it’s easier to center yourself. Still, with the Moon in your communications sector all day, you’re feeling the need to branch out, diversify, and seek new ideas or information.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Uranus square can generate some tension, dear Sagittarius, particularly if you’ve found your studies, contacts, or projects consuming recently and a chaotic feeling has developed in other areas of your life. Aim to know your limits and respect them, or else you’re likely to feel too scattered to be very productive. If you’ve been suppressing frustration, this can be a time when it emerges unexpectedly. Stress can have a way of aggravating problems all around, so do what you can to relax. While not everything is going according to plan, you can find ways to adapt and enjoy yourself. In fact, today’s troubles can help you pinpoint what needs an update or significant improvements.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Uranus square riles you up, dear Capricorn, and it can overstimulate. As such, it may be best to watch for hasty moves, particularly with money and love. Your desire for comfort and safety seems to compete with your need for emotional excitement. These days, you want to take control of the more practical affairs in your life, and today’s inconsistencies remind you that control is never entirely ours! There’s only so much you can do. Consider that scattered energies today can more easily lead to losing or misplacing something. However, there can be a significant breaking-free moment emerging from tensions or related to dysfunctional areas of your life. Changes in plans can stimulate new approaches and ideas. Aim to keep an open mind and avoid pushing things too far. Be sure to take some time away from an issue if it’s draining you or distracting you from your priorities–something that comes far more naturally later today.
AquariusWhile the Moon in your privacy sector inclines you to seek more downtime, dear Aquarius, a Sun-Uranus square active today can overstimulate you. This is especially the case if you’ve been holding on to frustrations. It can be challenging to accept restrictive conditions right now with this transit that seems to bring those things you’ve suppressed or buried to the surface, possibly in disruptive ways. Family relationships can be a little tense or strained, or you’re finding it hard to feel content with routine living. Seek new ways to enjoy yourself if things are feeling too stuffy or stifling, but also seriously consider what you may need to stay stimulated and engaged going forward. A little self-knowledge can go a long way today.
PiscesMental tension is possible with the Sun and Uranus forming a square today, dear Pisces. It’s best to avoid impulsive moves. Instead, look for the window this transit gives you into areas of your life or thinking patterns that have now become dysfunctional. Certainly, the desire to go your own way, particularly mentally and with your projects, can rock the boat. Watch that you don’t become your own worst enemy by speaking too quickly about a matter. It may be that you want to break free from an oppressive situation, but being mindful can serve you better. With the Moon in your solar eleventh house all day, you need some freedom and space to be yourself.
