Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou express yourself comfortably and creatively today, dear Aries. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, increasing your curiosity and encouraging you to learn and connect. Others’ ideas jumpstart your own thinking, and sharing your expertise or lending a hand can be rewarding. Structured learning can be more effective than usual. There can be some indecision today, as part of you feels self-protective and insular, and another part is itching to do something new. This is not a day for good timing, as you can temporarily feel distant from your instincts or intuition.
TaurusWith the Moon in your solar second house all day, dear Taurus, taking care of business feels fitting and enjoyable. You have a stronger need to take care of what you have and own today. However, if you’re feeling a bit torn today, try to get out of an “either-or” frame of mind since you may be able to combine things in such a way that you don’t feel you’re missing out. It’s easy to feel distracted with varying drives and energy. While you’re in a friendly Venus cycle, Jupiter is encouraging some downtime, and this contrast is stronger than usual today. However, with some special handling, you can enjoy both.
GeminiYou’re in good shape to pursue your personal interests and self-directed activities, dear Gemini, with the Moon in your sign all day. You may not always feel in step with others, however. You want to honor uniqueness and freedom of spirit, but you’re also focusing on some tradition and tried-and-true pursuits. Decisions don’t come easily today, but a sense of mission or purpose is likely to emerge later today and tomorrow. Until then, you could feel you have a lot on your plate or encounter mixed signals since it’s not always easy to read others’ needs and wants.
CancerWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house, you can be more retiring than usual today, dear Cancer, and extra time to yourself or for rest is very appropriate at this time in the lunar month. You might find the time and energy to put an irritating problem behind you. Finding moments to unwind is essential. Being more sensitive to others’ moods today, it’s rather easy for something to upset your equilibrium. You may need to tune some people or information out for a while.
LeoThe Moon spends today in your solar eleventh house, dear Leo, stirring your interest in socializing. There can be times today when you take things, people, and perhaps even yourself a little too seriously. Otherwise, exploring new personal interests can be engaging. There is the tendency to feel divided in spots, unsure if you wish to wait for someone to intuit your needs or assert yourself. Fortunately, there can be some inspiration or good news with friends, and you can find it satisfying to reach out or latch onto a special heartfelt pursuit.
VirgoThe Moon spends today in your career and objectives sector, dear Virgo, encouraging you to set goals or remind yourself of them. You could feel a little divided now, however, as part of you wants light and easy interactions, and another part seeks a more profound connection or deeper meaning. There is some tendency to see-saw between decisions, feelings, and activities. Aim to focus on your responsibilities and productivity. Keeping things simple and appreciating things this way may be your best bet right now.
LibraConcentration levels are unlikely ideal today, dear Libra, but the day is good for exploring, discovering, and sharing. You’re enjoying more attention to your routines and wellness pursuits or chores these days, but today’s energies tend to pull you away from these things. You’re very distractable! It might make sense to combine your needs creatively rather than see-saw or choose one route but remain preoccupied with another. The desire to expand and grow something can be a drive. The need for a change of pace can dominate, but pacing yourself is probably best or you could find you’re only spinning your wheels today.
ScorpioThere’s generally very motivating energy with you for getting things done, pursuing wellness, and enjoying your routines, dear Scorpio. Today, your desire to enjoy yourself is strong, and it seems to compete with this drive. While you could feel somewhat divided between work and play today, remind yourself that you have plenty of time to work out the right balance. Even though life isn’t naturally flowing today, you can find ways to enjoy yourself and be productive. Your need to observe and reflect is stronger than usual with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, and you’re processing your feelings and recent events.
SagittariusRestoring balance in your life can be in focus with the Moon in your partnership sector all day, dear Sagittarius. Today favors a mature, forthright approach in your dealings. However, there can be some moodiness and restlessness, as you are hungrier than usual for affection, but you may not be particularly satisfied with what comes your way. Distractions are plenty, and you’ll need time to refresh yourself. As the day advances, it’s easier to focus. Transits encourage you to learn from your interactions and make the most of them.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your work and service sector, dear Capricorn, stirring an emotional need to contribute and produce. Work and health matters can be in stronger focus again today. It’s a time when you thoroughly enjoy piecing things together. Quiet or solitary activities suit you perfectly and may even bring out your best today. Still, people don’t necessarily know what they want today, and that can include you! Your curiosity is strong today, but another part of you prefers to remain in the background. Indecision is possible.
AquariusYou tend to negotiate and compromise today more than usual, dear Aquarius, as you’d rather come to an agreement than bother with challenges. The inclination is to keep the peace. A good part of you wants to settle in and enjoy yourself, but the desire for novelty is also strong, leaving you feeling confused or divided at times today. Once you’ve solved this dilemma or resolved not to let it bother you, you’re more likely to enjoy the pleasant vibes for connecting and sharing. You also want to make the most of your leisure time.
PiscesYou’re seeking more familiarity and security today, dear Pisces. You’re inclined to make more adjustments than usual today, but it’s excellent for bringing a better balance to your world. It might benefit you to dial things down and aim for a regeneration of sorts. You’re paying more attention to your personal needs, family, or home life. You can feel in extra need of comfort, and there’s some tendency for restlessness to lead to indulgence. Temporarily, you may not be in full touch with what you want, making it better to wait for more clarity before making impactful decisions.
