Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere may be an exciting discovery in the first half of the day, dear Aries, but it’s all too easy to find yourself at cross purposes with someone. Or, you may be dealing with a disagreement on a money, business, or ownership matter. You’re in good shape for investigating a matter, however. As the day advances, you get into a good position to discover creative ways to approach your goals. You can experience a subtle shift in your priorities or goals today as you, more and more, consider your dreams and ideals. Material goals are satisfying if you balance them with things that bring you a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. Someone has your back right now, or you can make a connection with a person who has excellent ideas. This refreshing viewpoint is due to a Sun-Neptune aspect influencing today and tomorrow. It’s a great time to gather inspiration, and daydreaming now can be very good for the soul.
TaurusYou can be motivated to get to the bottom of a matter in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. This tendency can be a little disruptive, and you could find others resisting. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to want to relax, go with the flow, and tune into your intuition. An upcoming Sun-Neptune influence is an especially romantic or idealistic transit. You’re drawing on your imagination and finding inspiration for your dreams and plans. Routine seems more unappealing than usual. You’d rather enjoy different activities or lines of thought–things that engage and intrigue you. You can find creative ideas to overcome problems. Placing your faith in a friend can figure strongly. There is more sensitivity to the day’s energies, and it’s working in your favor.
GeminiA strong desire to make things work can lead to a happy settling into a routine today, dear Gemini. Even so, passions tend to rise in the first part of the day. You may become aware of an obstacle in your path, which can be very frustrating. Resentment of others may emerge, and difficulties reaching an agreement are possible. The Moon is currently putting the emotional focus on some of the details of your life–things that you might overlook on another day but that now assume more importance. It’s a good time to analyze, think, and consider. But, as the day advances, a Sun-Neptune transit comes into influence, and your dreams support you as you regain some inspiration. Forgiveness and acceptance come more easily now, and they can be cleansing and rejuvenating. It’s a good time for clearing away leftover issues from the past. Your intuition serves you particularly well regarding career moves or strategies for success.
CancerThe Moon heads into your recreation sector, where it will stay until early Saturday, dear Cancer, bringing out a need to share your affection with others or to play and enjoy. It may be a little challenging to get others on board in the first part of the day. Influences seem to want you to slow down and enjoy yourself as the day advances. Rapport with others can be almost telepathic–a Sun-Neptune sextile coming into effect can help you connect with a helpful person. As you look at a problem or situation in a new light or put your faith in someone (or something), you find it easier to relax. You may receive good reviews or feedback. It’s particularly wise to listen and learn from people in your life later today and tomorrow as well. Treating all as equals can be enlightening and can open doors.
LeoThe Moon heads into your solar fourth house until Saturday morning, dear Leo, and the desire for more warmth, safety, and familiarity is strong. There can be some tension building in a close relationship. Consider that this is really about the need to grow and improve, and think of ways you can do so while preserving your independence and sense of security. As today advances, we get closer to a Sun-Neptune transit that encourages a happy go-with-the-flow attitude. While you’ve been feeling very much in charge of taking care of your daily affairs, you benefit from considering the imaginative or creative side of the equation. You are likely to get the support and the information you need now. Confidence comes from a sense that, with a little patience, everything will fall into place. Trusting your inner guide comes a little more naturally. While you should take the time for self-understanding before making big moves, you’re also in good shape to unwind. Pulling back from a problem can help you visualize the solution.
VirgoThe Moon moves into harmony with your sign, dear Virgo, and today and tomorrow, you find it easier to express yourself. You have a little more influence and some tendency to brood or think deeply in the first half of the day. It can be a good thing if you’re applying this power to something useful. Watch for what you say, as your words have a little more impact right now. As the day advances, your view of people may be a bit more idealistic, romantic, or influenced by your fantasies and ideals. You’re bringing more imagination, creative flair, and compassion to your relationships, perhaps even some drama. It feels good to accept, have faith, and enjoy. There continue to be some random elements to the day, but you take things in stride.
LibraIn the first half of the day, it’s best not to try too hard or explain too much, dear Libra, as there is some tendency to complicate a problem. You’re more inclined to seek emotional refreshment or a retreat of sorts as the day advances. You’re attuned to the creative, imaginative, and artistic side of your home life, and you bring extra compassion and understanding to family and work relationships. Work done at home or on the home can be inspired now. You’re at your best when you’re taking part in activities and work that foster your creativity and desire to grow, contribute, and improve. While you’ve been craving tangible results, you’re now seeing the bigger picture.
ScorpioThe Moon moves into your sign until early Saturday, dear Scorpio. Emotional needs move to the front burner with this transit! The first half of the day is a bit up and down or stop-and-go. You could face some resistance or obstacles in your path. As the day advances, it’s easier to take things in stride. A Sun-Neptune sextile in effect today and tomorrow encourages you to express yourself with unique flair. You tend to connect with your spiritual goals, compassion, and intuition, and it can feel quite magical! An experience or person might expand your perspective. Finding commonality with someone unexpected might figure strongly now. There can be pleasures and possibly inspiration through short excursions or casual chat. Creative entertainment can be good for your soul.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into the sign just behind yours today, dear Sagittarius, signaling the need for a bit of extra downtime for a couple of days. It’s a natural time of the lunar month for winding down, processing, and digesting before making your next big move. While many different things can vie for your attention today, as the day advances, a Sun-Neptune transit comes into play. You may get a pass on a problem that has been weighing on your mind, or you could be actively putting certain troubles behind you. You want to feel more secure and comfortable, and something you encounter today can move you in this direction. The focus now should be on what genuinely fulfills you beyond the material world, as well. You might choose to slow yourself down and tap into a “go with the flow” philosophy. Remind yourself of your most important goals and values.
CapricornThoughts of the past are powerful in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, and you might come to an important conclusion. Later today, the influence of a Sun-Neptune transit encourages you to slow down, pause, reflect, or take stock. You’re inclined to ease down and unwind. Considering what you may have been missing or what might help round out your life more fully comes naturally. Ask yourself whether your highest goals and ideals are well-represented in your current plans. If the answer is “no,” you’re likely to think up some potential refinements. You’re encouraged to put more faith in yourself and in life itself. Your powers of persuasion are in fine form today.
AquariusInteresting questions can come up with friends today, dear Aquarius, giving you pause to think. Life is busy but mostly in a pleasing way. Nevertheless, there can be some tension with the Moon at the top of your solar chart in combat with several planets. Your desire to excel is strong, but your need for personal time is perhaps almost as compelling. As the day advances, it’s much easier to take a step back and get to a better position mentally. Putting your fears and tensions aside comes most naturally. Helping others or volunteering your support or services can be rewarding now. You can be feeling inspired today, and especially appreciative of the natural world. Connecting with your spiritual or imaginative needs can help round out your life nicely.
PiscesInteractions may be a little challenged or simply more intense than usual in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. As the day progresses, you could get the chance to reach a whole new level of understanding with someone special, or even with yourself, which can be just as important. It becomes far easier to take the high road. You can find your connections satisfying, and you seek activities that give you a stronger sense of meaning or purpose. Your need to connect to people with whom you share common aspirations is in the foreground. Letting go of ego issues is something you do better than other signs, and it’s excellent for bonding. Pleasant surprises can be part of your day today and tomorrow.
