Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s transits are good for observation, dear Aries. It’s a time to get a solid sense of your priorities and catch up on any need for emotional replenishment. It’s a fine time for recognizing what needs healing, particularly if you aim to let go of emotional baggage, grudges, or resentment. Today’s energies seem to favor stepping back, observing, and processing. Your own motivation levels are stirring up, mainly related to career or long-term goals, and today, you can more readily tap into this enthusiasm. There is a real feeling of change in the air this week, but along with it, some confusion comes! The temptation to agree with others is strong later today but could lead to misrepresentation or problems later. Alternatively, if someone seems to be trying to make you insecure today, know that it stems from their insecurities, and perhaps they’re trying to get a rise out of you only to feed their own need for attention.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your partnership sector for a stay of over two days, dear Taurus, close relationships are on your mind. You could be feeling more confident about interacting. It’s not the best time of the lunar month for acting entirely independently or making executive decisions, as you tend to thrive on others’ input, whether or not you actually use it! Shared activities can be exciting. You find it easier to accept new ideas and explore new subjects, directions, or events now. Still, as the day advances, you can experience some self-doubt. While a useful process, it can feel a little deflating initially. Anxiety can creep into many areas of life and subtly undermine general happiness if you let it. There are solutions to problems to be found from circumstances now, however, so do take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. Your intuition will be back on track shortly.
GeminiYou can enjoy more enthusiasm for your projects and pursuits or your routine now, dear Gemini. You might focus on improvements and doing various chores that help you feel you’re ahead and organized, ready for action. A sense of forward movement helps fuel you. You could be excited about a work or research task, perhaps finding it gently challenging and compelling. It’s a strong time to glue the pieces together and feel the satisfaction of having done so. You might also find yourself helping others or playing a supportive role, quite willingly. Later today, there can be some confusion revolving around boundaries in relationships with the Sun and Chiron in conflict. As such, it’s less than ideal for bold actions and sweeping decisions. Avoid making sweeping statements, too, or engaging in a heart-to-heart just for now. Keeping a low profile until you sort things out is probably for the best. You are aware of so many choices and possibilities that making a decision is almost painful. You may be doubting a lover or friend today on some level, but this may only be about insecurities.
CancerToday is powerful for creative matters, dear Cancer. You are always a perceptive person with accurate emotional “feelers,” but today, you are even more so. Pay special attention to the insights you get now. There can be nice rapport and good timing with a partner. Emotions and actions work in harmony early today, which creates the perfect atmosphere for getting along. Later today, there can be some confusion and a lot of it going on inside you, even though it’s likely to lead to something very positive. Take your time while confidence is low and doubts surface. There could also be some emotional slush emerging today that can take over your thoughts and influence your choices. Pay close attention to what appears now, as it can point to the very fears, resentments, or anger you are being called upon to put behind you.
LeoMuch is happening behind the scenes and on an emotional level now, dear Leo. With the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house today, you can benefit from tuning out distractions and finding time for yourself. You might find comfort in familiar settings, and it can be a good time for home and family matters. Take any opportunity to recharge emotionally, and if you can benefit from organizing your home or workspace, then this can be an energizing time to do so. As your connection to others, your work, and your stores of motivation strengthen, you can be far more effective. Later today, with the Sun and Chiron heading into conflict, you might feel demotivated and slightly under the weather just for a short spell. As you may be a little unsure of yourself or perceiving matters from a place of insecurity or fear, it may be better to keep your thoughts to yourself just for the time being. You could be extra sensitive to your surroundings and what people say (and how they say it). While you sense a need for changes and improvements, a solid plan can elude you temporarily. This is a time for sticking with the familiar until you rebuild confidence.
VirgoYou’re drawn to interesting people and situations today, dear Virgo. You’re also inclined to help solve others’ problems. A passion can be energizing, possibly even motivating you to better yourself or to do your best. It’s a day for being pleasantly busy. Sharing news can figure strongly, and you can feel quite motivated on social and communicative levels. It’s a good time to reach out to others through words and deeds and express your affection. People are more sensitive than usual later today, however, as we approach a Sun-Chiron square. You may be dealing with ambiguous interactions or cosmic energy that feels a little clogged. You might question a recent endeavor or plan. If you’re uncertain about your plans, you won’t easily attract others’ support, so you might want to wait until a better time to pitch an idea. Pace yourself so that stress is minimal. But even with doubt or frustration, you’ll likely come out of it with more courage.
LibraWith the Moon moving out of your sign and into your solar second house today, dear Libra, it’s a good time to select activities that ground you. You can be excited about taking action or doing something productive related to your personal or home life. While more predictability and comfort are goals, you also want to solve problems to feel ahead of the game! Tune in to your intuition to find ways to better use your resources today. Overthinking things is where you may get into trouble right now. Feeling secure and independent strengthens your emotional state. Later today, doubts can emerge, which can be a little unsettling. However, keep in mind that people can be so rooted in their issues that they don’t easily see others clearly with an impending Sun-Chiron square. Avoid over-explaining yourself, as tempting as it may be to do.
ScorpioThe Moon moves into your sign and will visit for over two days, dear Scorpio. You have a zest for action and have much personal presence — you won’t go unnoticed right now! Your ability to communicate effectively boosts social relationships today. You can enjoy fresh energy with studies, projects, and mental interests. The excitement of learning or sharing something new can be a theme. The desire to act on your feelings is stronger than usual. While the week ahead is strong for making nice progress, later today, people can be stuck on their issues. You may need to deal with some doubt before pressing forward. Just for now, it can be hard to make sense of the signals you’re receiving from others. Do what you can to muster up not only patience but trust that things will right themselves with just a little time. It can be all too easy to lose focus if others are making demands and you entertain them, and even though you can be feeling put upon or taken advantage of, part of you may be going along just to make everyone happy, which can ultimately frustrate you.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house today, dear Sagittarius, it makes sense to slow things down a little. You’ll be better positioned to make smart decisions if you attend to the body and mind today, feeding them what they need to relax and function well. Some level of operating behind the scenes is appropriate now, particularly if you are moving towards the close of a project. Tying up loose ends is favored. At the same time, the desire to manage your resources is strong, and you’re emotionally tuned in to that need. Make plans now, but it’s also appropriate to conserve your energy in preparation for busier days to come. Some confusion over boundaries or differences in values can feel glaring later today, but it can be difficult to know what to do with it all. Solutions seem out of reach, or you’re just too tired to think of them. New insights into your career path, money, resources, or a work project will emerge this week, but getting there now can be a struggle. Take your time with big decisions until you’re feeling back to normal.
CapricornYou feel more energetic and hopeful today, dear Capricorn, and stepping just a bit out of your comfort zone comes naturally. You are more aware of what you can bring to the world. Connecting with a network can be enjoyable and reinforcing. Attempting projects that require more verve or confidence can be in focus. Personal magnetism is strong — you’re getting noticed now! Try not to commit yourself to what might look like amazing plans now, however, as your idealism is strong today, but when your pragmatic side kicks in later, the venture could then seem quite impractical. As the day advances, you might be especially sensitive about family or personal matters, or you could find that something triggers your vulnerabilities and sets you a little off track. It’s temporary, however. Don’t worry too much if others seem to be doubting you now–this will also pass quickly.
AquariusYou’re more aware of your impact today with the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart, dear Aquarius, sensitizing you to your performance. Letting your actions speak for you is especially appropriate now. With Mars now in a behind-the-scenes sector of your solar chart, there’s a tendency to put more effort into closing projects, renewal, and recuperation. You’re prepared to get a grip on your priorities now, but making time for relaxation can be one of them! Overthinking tends to lead you astray, and letting go of it helps you tremendously. Later today, however, communications can quickly go awry with the Sun’s square to Chiron. Getting through your schedule or routine could be a tad challenging since your mind is somewhere else, mainly on personal issues. While there can be some discomfort or sensitivity to deal with, your courage to improve and put frustrating situations behind you will ultimately dominate.
PiscesCreative self-expression comes easily and naturally now, dear Pisces. You’re gravitating to people with similar ideals and outlooks, but you are also happy to interact with people who can expand upon these things or introduce you to new things or ideas. It’s a time when you attract positive, happy, and forward-looking people into your life, or current relationships are a little spicier. You might inspire somebody with an idea or a unique perspective on a matter. While there can be flowing interactions, later today, we approach a Sun-Chiron square, and you may need some reorientation. You might feel like someone is overstepping bounds, and you can feel self-protective in reaction. Try to avoid making any commitments that you might later regret. You may deal with doubt or fear about precisely what you can handle. This is likely to be a brief feeling, and although it may not seem productive, if you examine why you feel this way, you might discover something important about yourself.
