Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury moves into your solar fourth house for a guest stay until the 27th, dear Aries. During this cycle, your thoughts often revolve around personal matters, especially family, home, and domestic issues. You enjoy, more than usual, discussions and stories about the past and family. You are more rational and objective when it comes to the relationships with those close to you, making it a decent time to open up discussions with family. There can be increased activities in and around the home, and you may take less interest in worldly matters and career for the time being. You might do more learning or work at home or with family. It’s a great time to organize your domestic world and draw up long-term plans for getting yourself on solid footing. Today, there can be tricky relationship dynamics to manage. However, the Moon’s transit of your sector of joy helps boost your spirits and mood.
TaurusMercury moves into your solar third house today, dear Taurus, and will stay in this area of your chart until the 27th. It’s an excellent time for learning, short trips, communication, and making connections. There can be mentally nervous or fidgety moments during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, or information overload. However, you might thoroughly enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress if managed well. It’s a great time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it. Your mind is often distracted, particularly when required to stick to routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project. Today, staying idle can make you restless, so roll up your sleeves and get things done! Even so, the Moon spends the day in your sector of home and family, suggesting some need to stick with familiar faces and places as you replenish your energy.
GeminiMercury moves out of your sign and begins its transit of your solar second house today, dear Gemini, staying there until the 27th. The period ahead is one of maintaining, building, and developing. During this cycle, practical matters tend to occupy your mind more than usual. Patient planning is possible now and can be very beneficial! You more easily draw upon practicality and objectivity in your approach to spending, saving, and making money. Watch, though, for fretting over finances and valuables during times of stress. With your conscious mind focused on money, valuables, and personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new business ideas. Today is good for feeling more self-assured and confident–you instinctively know how to work for instead of against yourself. Your personal appeal is quite strong. This is a day when connecting without pretenses is highly favored.
CancerMercury heads into your sign today, dear Cancer, staying until the 27th, and you have your voice back! You didn’t entirely lose your voice while Mercury spent an unusual amount of time in your privacy sector (since early May), but in some ways, you may have had less opportunity or desire to speak about yourself or your plans. Now, you’re a little more willing to share. Decision-making is sharper. During this cycle, you tend to talk more readily, particularly about your likes and dislikes or your past. It’s the time of year when you can most easily use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself. You also tend to make more executive decisions, and your comments have more impact. Today, compromises aren’t easy to reach. Even difficult interactions can teach you a lot about yourself and your needs. As well, you are incredibly observant and quite willing to watch and learn rather than jump into action, which benefits you now.
LeoMercury moves into your solar twelfth house today, dear Leo. You focus on private matters and past issues during this cycle that lasts until the 27th. You tend to seek meaning in hidden places and examine the past for answers. Watch for too much focus on issues that have outgrown their worth in your life. Otherwise, it’s a powerful period for seeing layers of situations that you might overlook ordinarily.
You’re figuring out where you are “at” in your personal journey, and you can be more impressionable than usual. It takes more time to come to decisions, as you see more options than usual. However, the Moon spends today in your sign, and you’re more interested in connecting, wanting to get involved or noticed.
VirgoMercury enters your solar eleventh house today, dear Virgo, extending a focus on your social life, networking, and goal-setting until the 27th. You are especially concerned about being happy, enjoying yourself, and connecting with people who accept you as you are during this Mercury cycle. It comes after a lengthier than usual focus on your goals and responsibilities, and it feels good to change the mental scenery! You’re giving more thought to personal happiness, friends, or other activities that help round out your life and make it more interesting. You might come up with innovative ideas for future projects. This is a generally good time for sharing your skills, talents, or knowledge with others. Today holds decent energy for talking about or solving problems surrounding career, business, and goals. A business can benefit from networking efforts now.
LibraMercury moves into your solar tenth house today, dear Libra, where it will transit until the 27th. This influence brings a strong focus on setting goals, business, career, and achievement. For better or worse, strong mental energy is related to these matters in the weeks ahead. You are a little more guarded when communicating, and in truth, you’re more accountable for what you say. Your thinking is goal-oriented, or your work might require more communicating, mixing, and connecting. You speak with more awareness of your audience and more authority. For some, there is public or professional attention to your ideas. Today, you can find it easier than usual to combine work and play or balance your attention to both responsibilities and mental refreshment.
ScorpioMercury heads into your solar ninth house today, dear Scorpio, and will transit there until the 27th. You take more interest in the bigger picture than details during this period. Decisions made now are more inclined to take into consideration morals and ethics, not only practical concerns. You are communicating with more enthusiasm and optimism during this cycle. Ideas and words tend to flow smoothly now. Publishing and learning new concepts can be in stronger focus–you’re looking to expand your knowledge and mental experience. Today holds quite a bit of logical energy, with a strong emphasis on sound thinking, and you tend to do what you think more than what you feel just for now. Mentoring and guiding others can be satisfying, and you enjoy learning something or sharpening your skills and knowledge as you do.
SagittariusMercury heads into your solar eighth house for a stay of over two weeks, dear Sagittarius. During this cycle, you take a bigger interest in all that lies below the surface. Mystery and intrigue appeal more than usual. Your mind may be working like that of a detective, uncovering information and analyzing motives. It’s a period in which you might do a lot of thinking or talking about shared resources and finances or negotiations involving them. This transit, lasting until the 27th, brings mental energy to your intimate world, strategies, and work on the self. It’s a time for picking up all sorts of information and cues that you might overlook during busier times. Financial strategy and planning can be especially successful now. Today is solid for sound thinking and objectivity. You’re in an excellent position to develop robust plans and strategies along both material and emotional lines.
CapricornMercury heads into your solar seventh house for a stay of over two weeks, dear Capricorn. Until the 27th, you might frequently bounce ideas off a partner or close friend. You tend to attract intelligent people with whom you can communicate well and exchange ideas during this cycle. You know how to relate to others, and you do it naturally and warmly. You seek/attract chatty or restless friends who stimulate your curiosity and mental abilities. With this communication planet in your opposite sign, others tend to jumpstart your thinking processes. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate, and you tend to feel most comfortable spending time with people on a one-to-one level, or with those with whom you share a personal history. Today is good for mapping out long-term plans and bringing more rationality and logic to a relationship problem.
AquariusMercury moves into your solar sixth house today, dear Aquarius, which can be a very productive position for Mercury. List-making, organizing, and analyzing are the focus until the 27th. You might aim to positively use this energy by managing the essential systems in your life. Avoid worrying about details unless you are doing so with the intent to fix them. In the weeks ahead, you’re in particularly good shape for attention to detail and anything that helps you get your life (or your mind) more organized. There can be a lot of effort and thought put into putting things in order, or your work can involve more communication. Watch for a tendency to fret, worry, and over-think. Today, you’re thinking especially clearly and objectively.
PiscesMercury moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Pisces, and it will continue to transit your solar fifth house until the 27th. During this cycle, you are proud of your ideas and very good at expressing them to others. Fortunately, others are picking up what you’re putting down. Your thinking is more creative than usual, and you tend to entertain others with your conversation. As well, your sense of humor is especially strong. This transit encourages your desire to share yourself, your observations, and your ideas. You might attract intellectual or talkative people on a romantic level, and you can be attracting others through your conversations. Today offers a good time for really seeing the patterns of recent ideas and for ideas coming together successfully.
