Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first part of the day, watch for some tension in the family circle or with friends who can misunderstand your words, dear Aries. Someone close to you may seem difficult to please. Indecision all around can also make it challenging for you to make a choice. Aim to pace yourself, exercise patience, and stay flexible for best results. As the day advances, things come together–they’re no longer disjointed. In contrast, it can be a time of meaningful conversations or plans regarding domestic matters with the Sun and Mercury aligning in your solar fourth house. Things work well on the home front or regarding living conditions, and ideas can blossom. Mental activity continues to be strong–you’re making plans, solving problems, and handling details. Significant ideas, news, or conversations can be part of your day, even if you don’t yet know their value! You’re interested in making improvements and arriving at better decisions.
TaurusThere can be some complications with communications in the first part of the day, dear Taurus. You might decide to avoid going into territory that’s easily misconstrued. Energy may be on the low side in spots, but others might help re-energize you and bring you closer to your needs and wants. As the day advances, clarity is with you. It can be a mentally busy time, and you’re paying particular attention to details, news, and ideas presented around you. The Sun and Mercury join forces in your communications sector, and a significant idea or project can blossom. Transits help you sort things out and solve problems. Wonderful things can result from conversations you engage in today. Although you can be excited about presenting your case, your intuition hasn’t totally engaged, and it’s better to observe, think, and casually chat than to lock something down. Learning is quick and easy, and new ideas can be exciting.
GeminiThe need for consistency and building your strength is clear, dear Gemini, with the Sun and Mercury in your resources sector these days. Today can begin with tricky energy regarding money, talents, and resources, however. In fact, there can be misunderstandings regarding finances, opinions, and beliefs. This ambiguity can serve a useful purpose since slowing down can turn your attention to things you may have overlooked. It may be a bit of a challenge getting your message across at the moment, but you may very well decide that it was better left unsaid, so aim to reconsider or wait and see. As the day advances, things come together as Mercury and the Sun join forces. This transit is logical and bright, and new insights, ideas, and perspectives on these things can figure strongly as further details emerge. Helpful information can come your way or may already be in place — they only need to be processed, organized, and sorted. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project. Conversations stand out as especially helpful, informational, and logical.
CancerEnergies today encourage you to gather your thoughts and formulate your plans, dear Cancer. There may be obstacles, a slight setback, or a delay to manage first, but it can make you try harder, helping you out in the long run. Worries about a relationship or demands from others can be distracting, and concerns may need addressing, but don’t let them drain your energy. Fortunately, you also benefit from a Sun-Mercury alignment in your sign, giving your voice more power and clarity as the day advances. People might seek your opinion or advice on a matter. You may feel compelled to express your ideas and make an impact, or others seem to be talking about you! While it’s a time of mental renewal and increased decisiveness, watch for being too objective in situations that require more sensitivity today.
LeoThere can be minor doubts or vague concerns early today, dear Leo, and they can keep you from charging ahead. Still, this can be a good thing, as you may need a little more time to get things right. Somebody could disagree with recent choices, or you could feel pressure to tie up a problem when it may be better to wait it out. The day progresses with far less pressure and worry. You have a lot on your mind today! The Sun and Mercury align in your soul sector, and it’s a time to verbalize or sort out a private matter. You’re inclined to analyze and process recent events or ideas, and ideas coming to you now can be highly significant. Revealing conversations or emerging details can prompt a turning point of sorts.
VirgoYou might be dealing with the more critical or grumpy side of others close to you early today, dear Virgo, and indecision can also play with your mood. Try not to behave overly defensively, as this will not do you any favors. Watch also for reading too much or too little into things. It’s better to slow down and think before speaking. Still, the day advances with wonderful clarity. A Mercury-Sun alignment helps you enjoy a plan or friendship. Friends have something important to contribute or say, or the full details of a situation may be born. It’s a time for feeling motivated and inspired by your dreams or visions of the future. You might arrive at a fuller understanding of a long-standing issue. You can enjoy exciting ideas through a friend, your connections, or networks.
LibraEarly today, it’s a good idea to watch for too hasty or critical communications, dear Libra. Of course, you can’t expect to control what others interpret, and true friends and supporters will give you the benefit of the doubt. If possible, take a break or slow yourself down to get your bearings. You may need to do some mental swinging before getting to the middle ground. As the day advances, Mercury and the Sun come together, helping you see career and life path goals or professional matters and responsibilities more clearly. Your view is more balanced and logical, and while this perspective may not take all things into account, it’s valuable. Verbalizing your thoughts gives them life and helps you understand them better.
ScorpioMinor but nagging influences early today can challenge your perception or delivery, dear Scorpio. There can be tensions revolving around opinions and ideas or transportation delays to manage. Try to look beyond the words chosen to the intentions behind the communication. Get your mind off people problems by focusing on something more manageable and predictable. As the day advances, illumination can occur on a mental level. Mercury and the Sun align in your spirit sector, bringing some clarity. Conversations, news, and thoughts can help you clear up misconceptions, ultimately allowing you to make definite plans. Blanks fill in, mainly related to studies, personal interests, publishing, or a communications project. It’s helpful to remember that while conversations can be interesting right now, an emotional or sensitive element can be missing.
SagittariusYou may want to immerse yourself in a pursuit today, dear Sagittarius, but practical responsibilities that need more immediate attention can challenge this early today. Still, this brief blockage may strengthen your resolve to work things through. It may be best to pace yourself. You can be more sensitive to criticism, subtle imbalances in your environment, and fluctuations in others’ moods. Clarity comes naturally as the day advances. In fact, you might solve a mystery or problem, and it’s satisfying. The Sun and Mercury come together in your solar eighth house, and you might discover new information about an intimate relationship or financial issue. If you need to sort out a complicated matter, this is an excellent time to do so. It’s not so much a time for deep connections as it is suitable for looking at deeper issues with more objectivity and reason. An important conversation or observation may occur now.
CapricornIt can be challenging to make a firm decision early today, dear Capricorn, which likely reflects some lack of confidence in what you’re doing or where you’re heading. Aim to get your bearings. Finances may need a closer look, and worry is only helpful if it motivates you to make necessary changes. Otherwise, you are wasting perfectly good time and energy! There can be a misunderstanding or minor disconnect, but this can ultimately lead to greater understanding, as annoying as it can be at the moment. The day advances more smoothly. Your mind is busy processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas, and interactions or conversations with someone can help jumpstart critical thinking. Mercury and the Sun align in the sign opposite yours, and mental energy is intense and in the spotlight. Relationships themselves can be the primary topic of discussion. Some emotional detachment can be pretty helpful at the moment. Conversations happen that may not engage your emotions, but can be very constructive.
AquariusEarly today, your routines might suffer a little due to indecision, worry, or some minor off-timing, dear Aquarius. Emotions or nervous tension may interfere with your communications or output. Concentrating too much on the details or facts can obscure the bigger picture. The path to your goals is unlikely to be a straight line at the moment. However, as the day advances, a work or health matter may gain traction or clarity as the Sun and Mercury align in your solar sixth house. You’re inclined to do a lot of reasoning, planning, editing, refining, and talking things through. Work, chores, or daily routines can keep you unusually busy, and you might make a significant discovery in the process. Articulating your ideas can frame them in such a way that you see things more clearly. It’s best to remember that communication issues tend to dominate, temporarily taking a back seat to intuition and emotion.
PiscesSome communication problems or delays are likely in the first part of today, dear Pisces. You can feel misunderstood or inadvertently misrepresent yourself by not speaking about something or by talking about something prematurely. Process rather than force a decision. Make adjustments and refinements instead of sweeping changes for best results. Confidence is likely to return once you meet your obligations, and there can be some trial and error until then. Still, the Sun and Mercury meet later today, and as the day progresses, more clarity is likely. You can find yourself highly engaged on a mental level –you’re articulate, and you might enjoy entertaining others with your conversation. Or, today’s Sun-Mercury alignment can help you gain some clarity about creative projects, a relationship, courses, or a hobby. You’re taking more pride in your work, ideas, and beliefs today, and others are taking note! Creative projects could reach a turning point, or there can be a romantic revelation. Observations made now are likely to be significant, and assessing recent ideas can be beneficial.
