Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in great shape for spending time with familiar people and activities that boost your feelings of comfort, security, and inner wellness, dear Aries. After last night’s New Moon, there can be a fresh start or new motivation related to improving your living conditions or arrangements, home matters, your domestic or personal life, sense of security or safety, and family connections. Energies are good for discussions about personal or family issues, generally speaking. However, current Mercury transits suggest minor irritations and impatience that can interfere temporarily. People might interpret your communications as impatient or rebellious, and it’s not an ideal time to accomplish things cooperatively. Later today, you get into a more playful mood with the Moon’s move into your joy and pleasure sector.
TaurusYou may not be ready to commit to any one particular activity or endeavor, dear Taurus, preferring to dabble and enjoy yourself as you experiment. Last night’s New Moon has given you a boost for learning new things and playing with exciting possibilities. Ideas can fill your head, but so can too much information. Some of your ideas will “take,” and others may not, but don’t worry about the difference between the two just yet–there’s no rush. This theme is about discovery. However, you can be a little premature with your conclusions later today, as there can be some substantial chunks of information that you’re missing. The temptation is to make quick decisions or talk out of turn, and it may be best to tame this. Changes in plans and distractions can be frustrating, but they might lead to exciting new ideas and methods, so keep an open mind and schedule. Take the time to think up new ways to protect, improve, or build your resources, and aim to be receptive for best results now.
GeminiYou’re in good shape for getting centered, establishing priorities, and settling down, dear Gemini. Patience can help you achieve your goals. The Moon continuing its transit of your solar second house for the first part of the day stimulates your desire for predictability and steadiness. Yesterday’s New Moon helps motivate you to improve your finances and attend to your possessions. Ideas, and especially money-making ones, come to you with passion. Aim to receive and enjoy them, and sort them out patiently as you go along. This can be the start of something special! Even so, there can be a mental disconnect later today, or too many interests to make sense of temporarily.
CancerYour sensitivity, psychic ability, imagination, and intuition heighten today, dear Cancer. People are building their faith in you, boosting your motivation to present the best version of yourself. Make plans to pay more attention to your needs and happiness–some healthy self-focus is appropriate. The yearly New Moon in your sign has just occurred, pointing to a time for personal new beginnings. What you’d like to change, improve, or initiate is in your hands. You mean different things to different people, and this can sometimes cloud your true understanding of yourself. However, you’re now in a position to learn what’s in your heart. With a Mercury-Uranus aspect influencing today, you want to break out of limiting patterns of thought or communication. While this can be a good thing, do watch for rebellious or impulsive decisions. Aim to stay flexible and avoid speaking too soon on a matter for best results.
LeoLast night’s New Moon occurred in your soul sector, dear Leo, launching a cycle in which you’re taking charge of personal and private matters that need your attention. Buried or neglected issues can push to the front burner, but for some of you, you may need to take on a supportive role in which you sacrifice some of your plans and goals, at least temporarily, to take care of or help out others. You might take the lead on such a matter, or if you are the one who needs extra rest, then you’ll push for that. If you’ve neglected some of your psychic, spiritual, and emotional needs, then this is a time to acknowledge and attend to them. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign, pulling you out of yourself. You’re ready to share! A Mercury-Uranus aspect isn’t ideal for concentration or focus, but it’s strong for new ideas and interesting conversations. Make allowances for unexpected changes and interruptions of your usual schedule, and stay as flexible as possible.
VirgoPay special attention to who you meet and ideas that come to you around now, dear Virgo. The New Moon that occurred last night energized your sector of friendships, networking, community involvement, new ideas, technology, and aspirations. What’s happening around the time of this lunation helps pave the way for personal changes and new beginnings. There can be new friends or associations with groups and people who share some similar interests or a common goal or fresh starts with existing connections. A New Moon is about taking charge, and right now, it’s a good idea to open yourself to the need for people in your life who offer you new perspectives. The Moon heads into your solar twelfth house later today, pointing to some need to withdraw or take extra time to process, think, decide, and act. Unresolved matters from the past can resurface, allowing you to better understand where you are now. Still, you can be a little bored with routine, particularly if you aren’t allowed the freedom to think creatively. It’s best to watch for impulsive decision-making or speaking too soon on a matter.
LibraLast night, a New Moon occurred in your profession and reputation sector, dear Libra. Even if you’re happy in your position as it stands, there are always some tweaks you can make to improve your professional and public life. Later today, the Moon heads into your sector of friendship, hopes, and wishes, and you’re focusing on others or your place in the community. You’re inclined to put your social life and happiness goals at the top of your list for a couple of days. Also today, someone can be unreliable one minute and inspirational the next. However, through a bit of instability, interesting ideas are developing, and you might gain some insight into your relationships, projects, or prospects. Changes in your schedule or interruptions may very well lead to fresh ideas and experiences. Aim to reduce excess stimulants today since your mind is hopping on its own.
ScorpioYour spirit to explore beyond the ordinary experiences in your life is powerful now and in the week ahead, dear Scorpio. A New Moon occurred in your expansion sector last night, giving you extra energy and resolve to seek out new experiences on mental, physical, and spiritual planes. It can be a time for beginning new activities or projects that feed your thirst for mind-expanding experiences. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart later today, encouraging you to seek some order and direction in your life. As the day advances, you’re in an excellent position to assess your priorities and take care of some of your duties or obligations. Still, a Mercury-Uranus aspect can point to impatient communications. You can be driven to distraction relatively easily–haste makes waste now.
SagittariusLast night’s New Moon energized your sector of intimacy and sharing, dear Sagittarius. You can experience a feeling of revitalization on a deep, inner level in your relationship with yourself or a partnership. Inhibitions can drop, and there is more acceptance of the deeper side of your personality. Alternatively, you might have had enough of a bad habit, addiction, or superstition, and you are now motivated to end it. It’s a time for getting rid of burdens or sharing their weight with trusted others. You might decide to rid yourself of clutter or debt or get closer to someone who makes you feel better about yourself. Later today, you’re not interested in the same old routine or patterns of relating. Watch for a tendency to speak too soon and give others some leniency for what they might say, as things may be a little half-baked at the moment and not accurate representations of true feelings.
CapricornLast night’s New Moon can energize you for committing to a new way of enhancing a relationship, dear Capricorn. Someone in your life could need more support or attention, for example. If you need to take charge of a relationship issue, you’re starting to rev up to do so. It’s time to strengthen your relationships, negotiate, and compromise. The Moon heads into your intimacy sector later today, and you’re drawn to intensity, whether it’s about a project you can sink your teeth into or if it’s a relationship that pushes your buttons. Still, transits now can keep your mind racing even when your body’s ready for rest. There can be slightly competitive or restless energy now. Perhaps the best use of it is to do some outside-of-the-box thinking.
AquariusThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector for part of the day, dear Aquarius, and you gravitate to problems that need sorting. You’re seeking fresh and exciting ideas or methods today, and it may not always be easy to stay in the moment or keep focused on what’s in front of you as a result. You’d rather do something original than concentrate on the tried and true, which can seem dull just for the time being. Watch for becoming too easily sidetracked, especially if you try to juggle many things. With the Moon’s move into your solar seventh house later today, you seek others’ perspectives, and they seek yours. Someone in your life can appreciate your unusual and unique viewpoint. Understanding is a beautiful form of support now.
PiscesThis is a time for making improvements to your life, dear Pisces, and you’re discovering the need for quality leisure time and channels for expressing yourself creatively. Ideas for enjoying life’s more playful moments can come to you now. Even if your life seems crammed with things to do, you need to learn to make the most of your time to enjoy yourself. Pulling yourself out of busy settings may be worthwhile today, although your curiosity can mean you’re more distractable than usual. Later today, it’s best to watch for impulsive words and decisions. Explore alternatives and different methods, but avoid making significant commitments. Changes in plans can frustrate initially, but they can also lead to new and improved approaches. You’re in a “taking care of business” frame of mind once the Moon enters your work and health sector later today.
