Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s transits prompt you to review recent ideas, projects, or decisions, dear Aries, particularly about business or the longer-term, bigger things. Ambitions, career, responsibilities, or reputation issues can be in focus with the Sun’s alignment to retrograde Mercury in your solar tenth house. You’re starting to approach life direction and long-term goals in new ways that can be fruitful, leading to significant new ideas. You can get a sense of your next step or insight into particular directions you’ve been taking. Your communications have more impact than usual, and with Mercury still retrograde, it’s probably best to be selective with your words, keeping in mind that misunderstandings remain possible. Your observations today can be invaluable later, but it’s still not the best time for major decision-making.
TaurusYou have the chance to see things in new ways with the Sun and retrograde Mercury aligning in your solar ninth house today, dear Taurus. Thoughts might turn to the past or recent decisions and plans, and your new take on a situation is helpful. The conversations you engage in now can be inspiring and enlightening. Education, transportation, beliefs, or publishing issues can be in stronger focus. What you read and hear about today can be invaluable for future projects or inspire new thinking and ideas that have the power to stick with you for some time to come. It can be a time to draw upon your experience and create something new or see new layers of a situation you previously overlooked. Compelling interests and ideas can emerge.
GeminiNew insight into an old relationship or your own psyche can be enlightening today, dear Gemini, and quite useful as well. The Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury in your solar eighth house, making it a powerful time to delve into your feelings and intimate thoughts. If you’re a little self-absorbed now, it may very well be a valuable exercise. Thoughts, ideas, news, or conversations about private or financial matters now can lead to important directions or developments in the future. You can gain a big clue or further information on a matter, but it’s not yet time for a conclusion–there’s more to the story!
CancerWith today’s transits, you see new layers of a situation, dear Cancer, and you look at a matter or person from the past in a new way. The illumination of a relationship matter can be most significant with the Sun in alignment with retrograde Mercury, marking the middle of the Mercury retrograde cycle. You won’t have all the facts or answers right now–it’s a process–but this is a time for some helpful rethinking of matters. Seeing both sides of a situation helps round out your thinking, ultimately leading to better decisions. Counseling and advice can be in focus and helpful. There can be a meaningful conversation with a partner, or someone’s feedback can make all the difference in your life today.
LeoYou approach problems from a different angle today, dear Leo, as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your work and health sector. It’s a helpful process–you see some of the details of your life that you previously missed. Gaining meaningful insight into a work, chore, or health issue can figure strongly. Ideas born now can have great significance later. You are the go-to person for help or information, and you enjoy this role today! It’s better to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas than to start all-new ones, but your thinking in this regard is creative. The Moon moves into your sign later today, and it can feel like an emotional awakening.
VirgoYou can be motivated to express yourself in new ways that are perhaps a little non-traditional but very satisfying, dear Virgo. Reviewing past ideas can lead to new methods that can be very important in the coming months. Today’s conversations or ideas can serve as significant turning points. Your attitude about future growth and improvement is evolving as the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury. Someone from your past could reappear, or an old issue now looks very different! You might lay something to rest or refine a goal or approach. Further information or an epiphany about a creative or romantic matter can figure strongly. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house, pointing to the need to rest, review, and reflect. It’s a good time of the lunar month to take a break from the routine.
LibraThe Sun and retrograde Mercury come together in your solar fourth house today, dear Libra, and you want to make sense of matters from the past. The tendency is to look back, analyze, and reconsider. You’re in great shape for some exploring, as ideas that result from today’s musings and communications can have long-term importance. You might gain a new understanding of a past, home, or family matter. It’s a good day for releasing a problem through a conversation with someone you trust. It’s nevertheless best to observe, take notes, and muse rather than lock something down. The Moon moves into your social sector later today, and you seek the chance to unwind and enjoy yourself. Happiness goals are in stronger focus.
ScorpioWith the Sun and retrograde Mercury in alignment today, dear Scorpio, you might revive a past interest or view a current one in a new light. There can be helpful conversations and musings figuring strongly. Ideas generated now, especially about learning, mental interests, communication, neighbors, connections, and siblings, can be especially significant. For example, they might kickstart a long-term pursuit or lead you in an important new direction. While this can be a turning point, it may be best to postpone big launches until more information completes the picture–Mercury is still retrograde until the 18th. For now, it’s a great time to observe, get a feel for a matter, and take notes.
SagittariusToday’s transits encourage you to look at things a little differently, dear Sagittarius, particularly regarding money or practical matters. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury aligning in your sector of money, business, valuables, talents, and personal possessions today, pay special attention to ideas coming in now. Whether they emerge from within or outside of you, something falls into place, and it can feel magical. It’s a time to see a matter in a new light, and benefits come from doing so. Not everything is likely to make sense, as is often the case with new beginnings, but what comes out of conversations and thoughts today can be significant later. Keep in mind that what you say today can be more memorable than usual, so be sure to choose your words carefully. You might decide to give someone, an old project, or a situation another look or the benefit of the doubt.
CapricornYou see problems in new ways today, dear Capricorn, as the Sun and retrograde Mercury come together in your sign. You’re sure to arrive at interesting conclusions and insights as you take stock of recent events and draw upon the past for ideas. You are especially “heard” and generally received well, but with more impact and Mercury still retrograde, you may want to take special care when communicating. Aim to clear out the mental clutter to make room in your mind for positive thoughts and new ideas. Observations made now can lead to significant and long-term improvements. It can be worthwhile to consider ideas to make changes that give you a stronger feeling of well-being.
AquariusToday’s transits can prompt meaningful new insights into your innermost feelings, the past, or a long-term problem, dear Aquarius. As the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your solar twelfth house, you tend to receive interesting clues from your impressions and dreams. It would be best if you aimed to let go of bad attitudes or situations, and how to do so seems more apparent today. There could be a secret revealed or an epiphany that leads you to view old problems or a past matter in a very revealing new light. The information you come across today can be significant regarding putting something behind you. A new or renewed project can be more appealing and motivating. Private time can be beneficial if you can manage it.
PiscesThe Sun and retrograde Mercury meet in your sector of social connections, dreams, and hopes today, dear Pisces, prompting some rethinks. Important thinking, news, or conversations give you new insight into recent events, decisions, or problems, and these are illuminating today. They’re likely to relate to friends, projects, and relationships with this transit occurring in your social sector. You can be especially sensitive to what’s going on around you and to what’s communicated right now. Still, you’re gathering valuable information, and it’s a great time for processing, reviewing, and rediscovering old interests or plans. While this insight is still in its new and raw stages, it puts you on the road to brand-new beginnings. Memories or surprise meetings can change your perspective.
