Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can enjoy pursuing a new topic or train of thought today, dear Aries, and it comes naturally to grab opportunities to lighten up and release stress. Still, a Mercury-Neptune square occurs today, and there can be some disarray or confusion. It’s hard to see things clearly through the strength of your emotions or wishes. There can be resistance to following directions or instructions, which can compound the problem. If you’ve been bored with what you’re learning or doing, you might resolve to make more room for creativity in your life. Small efforts to chip away at a problem that’s looming large are better than none. Later today, you may be especially sensitive to criticism. It may be best to be careful with wording. A little time to recollect yourself may be all you need to restore your spirits or confidence, however.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Taurus, meeting up with Venus and boosting your comfort with your feelings. You are sensitive to the people and happenings around you in a mindful, confident way. Still, you may feel that your mind is playing tricks on you, or there is a frustrating lack of clarity, in general, with today’s Mercury-Neptune square. Misunderstandings on social or romantic levels are more likely than usual, and wishful thinking could confuse your perception of others or their view of you. Something can interrupt the flow later today. You could doubt a belief, ideal, or course of study. Inconsistency in your thinking can make itself known, or opinions clash, and it’s hard to settle your mind. Still, you can learn from the experience, if only to get closer to your ideas.
GeminiWith the Moon and Venus meeting in your partnership sector today, dear Gemini, you want to share your experiences. Obstacles all but disappear with love, compassion, and cooperation in the mix, even temporarily. Instead, someone can help you get in better touch with your feelings and ideas. Still, there can be some foggy thinking. Enjoying some fantasy can sometimes be therapeutic, but it’s best to be clear with yourself and others just to avoid misunderstandings or problematic expectations. Later today, you could experience discomfort or confusion about your deeper emotions, attractions, and attachments. There is some tendency to respond out of habit, which doesn’t serve you well. Wants and needs may seem to be at cross-purposes to one another temporarily.
CancerYou may need some pampering or recreation, but you also want to be productive today, dear Cancer. Mixing work or chores with pleasure is not always successful, but it may be today! Smooth and flowing daily routines will ultimately help you achieve your goals, making it worthwhile today to put some energy into getting them into shape. Even so, it’s not a good time for clear thinking with a Mercury-Neptune square in play. Glossing over facts can be all too likely. Your routines may seem lackluster, and seeking mental refreshment makes sense. Later today, differences and problem areas are in stronger focus, and it’s not easy to see around them. A sense that you need to put something to rest can interfere with your mindset or ability to relax and decompress. Aim to slow down and give yourself extra time. If there is any inconsistency or error in need of correction, you’ll probably discover it soon. Forgive yourself if you haven’t met a goal.
LeoWith today’s Moon, creating something and sharing it with others can be more satisfying than usual, dear Leo. Your personal appeal runs high. You’ll probably accomplish more if you focus on creative and otherwise engaging tasks or follow your heart in some manner. Still, thinking can drain rather than energize you at times today as Mercury forms a square to Neptune. It’s not especially easy to pick up on boundaries or others’ feelings under this influence. There can be minor disconnects or problems later today. Your daily routine, work, or other practical affairs can be tricky to handle effectively just for now. If people don’t value your contributions, you feel it more strongly now. Vague moodiness can reflect a temporary loss of motivation, but a dip now can help you redefine things later to your advantage.
VirgoThe Moon spends today in your solar fourth house, where it meets Venus, dear Virgo. If you need some time to center yourself and get your bearings, today can deliver! A pleasant time for family matters or your personal life is entirely possible. You more deeply enjoy nesting or processing recent events. Your need to retreat, relax, and reset is in the spotlight. Even so, distractions can make decision-making challenging. Thinking too hard or too deeply about issues feels draining now, so shoot for flexibility with your schedules and enjoy imaginative activities for better results. Reading too much into a situation may be more trouble than it’s worth later today. Refinements to incomplete or weak plans may be necessary. Transits now have a way of pointing out flaws! There can be hesitation with expressing yourself openly and naturally. You may be second-guessing yourself or feel that others are not receiving you very warmly. You can be a little reserved with your feelings, but it’s a good time to focus on productive areas.
LibraWith the Moon and Venus meeting in your solar third house today, dear Libra, you especially enjoy learning, sharing, and connecting. Light conversation or activity can give you a break from heavy thinking, or it can lead to bigger and better things. Still, today’s Mercury-Neptune transit can highlight any disorganization in your life temporarily. If you feel overwhelmed, you may need some mental refreshment. There are days for pushing ahead and others for maintaining the status quo, and the latter applies to today as it advances. It’s unlikely to pay to make waves, as confidence may be lacking, or you could be misinformed. Fall back on traditional or reliable methods for best results temporarily. A moderate approach to your life is in favor and can make you feel more confident and satisfied.
ScorpioToday’s Moon reminds you of the power of the present and living in the moment, dear Scorpio. You might discover ways to protect, improve, or build your resources. While you gravitate to earthy activities, today’s Mercury-Neptune square can interfere with judgment. The need for some mental refreshment can become apparent. Later today, differences in opinion can sit uncomfortably with you. Feeling overloaded or impatient can lead to mistakes if you rush things, making it best to slow down. Disconnects are possible–you can face some discouragement or frustration if communications go awry, for example. A dream or plan can hit snags. Still, it’s a good time to face any flaws that emerge and resolve to take care of them so that you can get back on track.
SagittariusYou’re inclined to enjoy some self-nurture or a bit of pampering today, dear Sagittarius, as the Moon and Venus converge in your sign. Self-expression is in favor, and a positive self-image is in the spotlight. You’re not necessarily more emotional than usual, but you’re more in touch with your feelings. You’re more likely to want to be involved and feel connected. However, today’s Mercury-Neptune square makes it difficult to see things clearly. If you can let go of overthinking or seeking out definitions and pinpoint accuracy, this can be a good time for creative thinking and writing. There can be some minor misunderstandings, or your timing is off later today, but don’t let a bit of awkwardness faze you. Slight tweaks and adjustments may be necessary if you’re looking to get something you want. A temporary lull can slow you down long enough to make valuable edits or useful research.
CapricornWith the Moon in your privacy sector today, you can crave some time away from the usual routine, dear Capricorn. You might seek a healthy escape from the standard fare, and emotional refreshment is easier to find than expected. While there can be lower energy levels on an emotional level, it’s also a good time to review or process recent events. However, a Mercury-Neptune square can make things a little foggy, delaying clear decision-making. Later today, unfinished business might weigh on you. You may feel a little out of sync, and it can be challenging catching up, so do your best to avoid taking on more. Others may be taking things very personally, so handling people with extra care may be wise. In turn, others can arouse defensiveness or combativeness in you. However, consider that they may be showing a side of yourself or your unmet needs through your interactions.
AquariusThe Moon and Venus meet in your social sector today, dear Aquarius, making it a natural tendency to want to share your ideas and enjoy networks and friends. More than usual, you’re seeking satisfaction and comfort from your social life or happiness goals. You might attract some goodwill your way. With Mercury and Neptune square today, it’s hard to trust your instincts or perceptions temporarily. Certain situations may only need some time to smooth out independently, and a bit of detachment can work well. Try not to take timing issues to heart later today. Plans could be hitting a few snags, or the people around you seem self-involved. Something from your past can interfere with the present. Aim to focus on your own goals and tune out the noise around you later today.
PiscesThe Moon meets Venus in your solar tenth house today, dear Pisces, and you might enjoy the rewards of recent accomplishments or consider and set new goals–an enjoyable process! The support of others motivates you to do your best. With Mercury square Neptune today, however, there can be some things up in the air. It may be better to wait and see before making impactful decisions. Later today, a misunderstanding or fear could leave you feeling a little insecure. Technical or timing problems can interrupt the flow. Consider that people around you require a little more care and sensitivity than usual. Aim to keep your center and seek out activities that keep your mind busy.
