Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your sign for a couple of days, dear Aries, and emotional needs you may have been putting aside are now a centerpiece. The Moon meets Mars in Aries today, drawing out your desires. Self-directed activities are best today and tomorrow, but it’s a good idea to watch for impatience. You have an electric, exciting aura around you. Chiron turns retrograde in your sign today, and in the coming five months, the healing energy that you’ve been radiating turns inward, making it a fine time for efforts to heal yourself. The shift itself this week can leave you feeling a little misunderstood or vulnerable in spots, but the cycle ahead is excellent for getting some relief. People have been seeking your good vibes, assistance, healing powers, and advice, and it’s appropriate now to get in closer touch with your own issues. A break from doing things for others can help you do so.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your privacy sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus, drawing your strong attention to behind the scenes, background, and private matters. While the need to rest and recuperate is real with this transit, the Moon meets Mars today, keeping your private or dreaming life active and animated. Discoveries about your inner world can be exciting and motivating. You may want to take action to put something to rest so that you can start fresh. Also today, Chiron turns retrograde, and until mid-December, it’s a powerful period for healing through understanding your past and your spiritual and emotional needs. This shift and tomorrow’s Mercury shift can point to some disorientation, doubt, or insecurity, but it’s temporary. Dreams and seeming coincidences occurring this week can serve as clues as to what inner work needs special attention. Your outer schedule may not be very straightforward but will be clearer once you’ve made some internal adjustments. The temptation can be to shut down a little on an emotional level, as you have been attracting a lot of people who seem to need your help, and it’s time that you paid more attention to your own needs.
GeminiMercury is about to turn direct, dear Gemini, which can mean the end of an information clog. Still, today is about navigating shifts. The Moon heads into your social sector, meeting Mars there, and there can be an exciting or animated quality to your social life. Networking stimulates strong feelings. Or, the desire to pioneer a new and exciting project is big right now. Chiron turns retrograde today, and existing problems, especially in your social life, might assume more importance in your mind. They can act as a trigger for further self-examination. For example, if you’ve been trying too hard to please others recently, you’re more likely to recognize it and want to pull back. Now is the time to examine why it is you may feel the need to overcompensate. Alternatively, if you’ve felt disconnected from your peers, an associate, or a particular friend, you’re inclined to go a little deeper to find an answer. Doing more for others not only doesn’t repair relationships, but it can also take you further away from the heart of the problem. It’s easier to see this in the months ahead while Chiron is retrograde until mid-December.
CancerToday can be animated for you on a professional or public level, dear Cancer. Your responsibilities and performance are in strong focus. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart, and you’re far more noticeable. Its alignment with Mars adds a dash of courage and encourages solo or pioneering efforts. Aim to draw upon the strength of your feelings to be productive and take the initiative. Also today, Chiron begins its five-month retrograde cycle, however. This shift may draw up doubts or insecurities about your current life path, performance, leadership skills, or career. Fears or vulnerabilities temporarily magnify, which leads to the need or desire to explore why. In the months ahead, you may get to the bottom of any overcompensating, procrastinating, or worrying in these areas of life. It’s a great cycle for working with various healing techniques. You’re likely to get in better touch with true needs and goals.
LeoIdeas and beliefs excite you today, dear Leo, and you can quickly become fired up by a topic as the Moon meets Mars in your solar ninth house. Watch for impatience, but do gently push your usual boundaries now. Still, it’s best to consider that two important shifts of direction are occurring today and tomorrow, and it’s wise to wait for these to happen before making big moves. Today, Chiron turns retrograde. This yearly retrograde phase will last until mid-December and is powerful for re-examining beliefs and goals. You may question current studies or activities in terms of whether they represent you and your current beliefs or interests. This struggle is more internalized during the retrograde cycle as you examine what may need healing within yourself.
VirgoThe Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo, motivating a stronger need to look within or connect more deeply with a person or project. It meets Mars today, and there can be animated discoveries on private or emotional levels. There can be exciting feelings, but also some tension or strong passions. Chiron is a long-term guest in this sector of your solar chart, and turns retrograde for over five months, starting today. It points to a shift in the ways you habitually deal with support, dependency, intimacy, power-sharing, and finances. You have a stronger ability to bring out the best in others. Still, there can be times when you may feel that you’re taking on the emotional burden and weight of others’ problems a little too often. Chiron’s retrograde gives you a little break from this and is also strong for examining why you may be overcompensating or avoiding your own issues in these areas of your life. This week, there can be something that triggers this inward journey.
LibraThe Moon heads into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, and feedback allows you may see your life through the eyes of another. Connections are energetic and animated with the Moon’s alignment with Mars. You may seek to feel vital and alive through your experiences, or someone plays an integral role in encouraging and egging you on. Chiron turns retrograde in this same sector of your chart today, and revelations now or this week signal a need for some healing or further examination regarding relationships. If you’ve been overcompensating or making too many sacrifices for others, you’ll recognize the imbalance. In the months ahead (Chiron is retrograde until mid-December), you might get to the heart of any fears or damage that prevents you from doing more for yourself, and this gets you on the road to healing. Once adjusted to Chiron’s shift in direction, this retrograde cycle is a powerful one for learning about your relationship needs. With Mercury also changing direction early tomorrow, it’s best to wait and see how you feel before making big changes.
ScorpioThe Moon enters your work and health sector early today, dear Scorpio, and your focus shifts to your daily affairs and duties. Taking care of the practical details of your life figures strongly now. Productivity increases when you’re enjoying what you are doing. Be careful not to overdo things today. Chiron, currently transiting this same area of your solar chart, turns retrograde. If you’ve been overcompensating in health or work areas, you’ll recognize the problem now, and you might examine why. Consider what about your daily routines (or your approach to them) that leaves you with a feeling that you haven’t done enough or haven’t been effective enough. You might also have been very busy serving and helping others, and now events and revelations are such that you recognize the need to turn your helping and healing efforts towards your own needs.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re in the mood to create, interact, and enjoy yourself now. Your desires are more adamant than usual, and you can be quite passionate and motivated. Chiron is a longer-term guest in this sector of your solar chart and begins its yearly retrograde phase today. In the five-plus months ahead, you’re in a strong position to learn more deeply about your needs for self-expression, romance, or creative pursuits, as well as the insecurities you may have along these lines. If you’ve been overcompensating, this is a time for seeing more clearly which fears are at the root of this behavior. Events today and this week can be catalysts for beginning the personal healing process. You may be holding back a little, as it’s time to look within rather than to serve others blindly without attending to your own needs.
CapricornThe Moon moves to the bottom of your solar chart today, dear Capricorn, and you can feel driven to attend to your inner needs and wants. You might take care of family and home matters with more vigor. Your senses are powerful and could be working overtime. Chiron is a longer-term guest in this same area of your solar chart, and begins its retrograde phase today, lasting until mid-December. This yearly cycle is a good one for self-discovery and healing. If you’ve been working so hard to please loved ones or make your life secure that you feel drained and perhaps a little resentful, you’ll begin to recognize the issue. There can be a need to draw much of that energy inwards, towards your own nurture and care. In the next several months, you’re in a high position to examine and identify the roots of insecurities.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your communications sector early today, dear Aquarius, and you feel a stronger need to connect and interact with the world around you. You’re more talkative and approachable, and with the Moon’s alignment with Mars today, there can be exciting discoveries with studies or mental interests. Chiron is a longer-term guest in this area of your solar chart, and today, turns retrograde. This shift can temporarily magnify any insecurities you might feel about self-expression, learning, or intelligence. Still, as you grow accustomed to the retrograde in the weeks and months ahead, you recognize the opportunities to get into better touch with what may be driving fears. This cycle can open your eyes to ways to repair and heal problem areas or to do some beneficial inner work.
PiscesThe Moon moves out of your sign early today, dear Pisces, and you begin to seek out a little less excitement and more predictability. Still, you can easily find yourself getting worked up today with a Moon-Mars alignment. This transit might fuel your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. Chiron is transiting the same area of your solar chart and turns retrograde today for over five months. This phase helps you gain a new perspective on your sense of self-worth and how this affects what you’re attracting into your life, not only by way of income but also the emotional and spiritual benefits that you deserve. Today and this week, events occurring can be catalysts for this inner journey, introspection, and self-examination. With the shift occurring today and Mercury’s direct turn early tomorrow, it’s best to adopt a wait-and-see attitude until you feel more grounded.
