Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith a New Moon tomorrow, today is better for regrouping, tying up loose ends, and reflecting, dear Aries. As the day advances, there’s a tendency for people to exaggerate, jump to conclusions, or buy into big ideas. Stay positive, but try not to take promises to heart. You might see things too optimistically or impractically now, which can lead to poor decisions, so wait things out if you can. A situation with a child or lover can have much more to it than meets the eye. Judgment about money may be off, and the tendency today is towards excess. Creatively speaking, your ideas are quite brilliant, but you may not have all the resources, particularly time, to implement them just yet. Be patient about putting exciting new plans into action.
TaurusAn idea can take hold of you today, and you can be quite enthusiastic, dear Taurus. However, you must consider the practical side of a situation before investing too much of yourself or your resources into a new idea or project. The potential for going over the top runs high right now. Remind yourself of your usual limits, and while pushing them a little can be fine, try not to push too far. You may be feeling very capable, but your energy and enthusiasm levels could burn out later, so significant commitments should be avoided just for now. Do, however, think up big ideas and plans that you may not even consider on a regular day. On this day before the New Moon, aim to take things easy, reflect, and regroup.
GeminiWhile the day holds decent energy for enthusiasm, dear Gemini, you should watch for a tendency for people to dramatize a matter or to draw conclusions before they see the whole picture. Mental restlessness can stir up some problems now. Be sure you have all the facts before you move forward with something important to you. We’re seeing things through a distorted lens, possibly exaggerating the importance or value of a matter just for now. What might feel like optimism may actually be overshooting or wishful thinking. You might also be inclined to talk ahead of yourself and end up revealing something prematurely. On this day before a New Moon, aim to regroup and center yourself.
CancerToday’s transits inspire you in spots, dear Cancer, but on this day before a New Moon in your sign, it’s better to wind down, reflect, and regroup. It’s also important to avoid overstating or committing to something beyond your usual limits, as optimism can lead you to take on more than you can reasonably handle. You could be expanding your connections these days, and this is a trend that will continue for many months. You’re also filled with ideas and new plans, but today, there can be a tendency to invest or put money into something prematurely. Be generous but not overly extravagant, both with money, resources, and your own energy. Tune into optimistic energy, but avoid taking it to impractical levels unless it’s all in good fun.
LeoToday’s energies support looking back before pushing ahead, dear Leo. There is a distinct tendency to overdo and overstate with us today, especially as the day advances. However, self-awareness can help you avoid going too far. Still, it’s best to watch for a tendency to say too much or to take on too many projects or commitments on personal and professional levels. You are ambitious these days, but you need to remind yourself of the limits of time and energy — even of enthusiasm. Transits now can really stir up excitement and motivation that’s useful in some ways but transient. It’s meant to stretch your mind to consider new possibilities – to think in bigger terms than usual – after which you can shape and refine these ideas to fit your life. On this day before a New Moon in your privacy sector, it’s a good idea to unwind, reflect, process, and center yourself.
VirgoOn this day before a New Moon, dear Virgo, you’d be wise to take things easy, reflect, and unwind. However, transits can stir up some enthusiasm. There can be gossip to deal with today, or people may be blowing things out of proportion. Disagreements can get very big, very fast! Try not to invest too much into information coming in now. Take on a wait-and-see approach to discover what sticks. You could be imagining something that is unlikely to transpire, and while this can be an interesting exercise, it may cut into real life in challenging ways. The real problem may be inner restlessness or dissatisfaction. You’re looking closely at hidden meanings, but this may be taken a little too far. As long as you keep things fun and light without heavy expectations, then this is a good day to daydream and consider new possibilities.
LibraOn this day before a New Moon, dear Libra, it makes sense to aim to regroup and process things rather than push ahead. While you might think that you are being realistic about your projects, promises, and money, you may, in fact, be stretching things. This is due to a Mercury-Jupiter square coming into play as the day advances. It encourages bigger thinking, but that requires some self-control so that you don’t take it too far. The tendency may be to live beyond your means on all sorts of levels, and judgment may be impaired. However, if left to the imagination, there can be good ideas surfacing that simply require refinements later. There can also be imbalances between what you want from someone and what they want from you, but consider that this may be temporary, and that patience will serve you best now.
ScorpioToday’s Moon encourages positive thinking and good spirits, dear Scorpio. On this day before a New Moon, it’s a good idea to take things easy and not think too far ahead. Still, transits today point to a tendency to blow something out of proportion, particularly news or bits of information. Try to be patient and get the whole picture before drawing conclusions. Also, aim to avoid succumbing to pressure to make a quick decision or to speak/communicate about an issue prematurely. Watch for errors that come from ignoring important practical details today. Even so, you can be feeling especially plugged in and filled with ideas, and this shouldn’t be ignored — the ideas simply may need further attention to detail at a later date. Now is the time for seeing things in bigger terms. Find peace through mind-clearing activities for best results.
SagittariusOn this day before a New Moon, dear Sagittarius, it’s a good idea to tie up loose ends, reflect, and regroup. As the day advances, however, there is a strong tendency to blow things out of proportion or to overstate as communications ruler, Mercury, heads into conflict with extravagant Jupiter, pointing to possible misjudgments. Even so, their conflict can stir up some wonderful enthusiasm and good ideas, even if these require some adjustments to come down to earth. If you’re simply daydreaming and exploring possibilities, and it’s a feel-good thing, then you’re making the best of this transit. You may be defending your ideas, which can be energizing but could also lead to moodiness if nobody’s truly listening to one another, which is very likely with today’s energies. Be moderate in your expectations for the best results.
CapricornThe day can find you quite people-focused, optimistic and enthusiastic, dear Capricorn. Still, there can be some moodiness as you may be working with incomplete information. Exaggeration may stem from a desire for more meaning or possibly some attention, and this may be an issue today, whether it’s in yourself or you meet this energy through your experiences with others. You may want to make big promises to make someone happy, but it’s best to keep things real today. Even so, do stretch your imagination and consider new possibilities, as this exercise can help you come up with exciting ideas. Creative activities fare nicely now. When it comes to relationships, you don’t need to go overboard to please someone who is worth the effort.
AquariusThe day’s energies incline you to want to take care of various minor problems, dear Aquarius, but it’s best not to push this too far on the day before a New Moon. Pacing yourself makes sense. Still, you can feel quite restless on a mental level today, and this can lead to new discoveries and interests and great ideas, or perhaps some drama in your personal life. Simple disagreements might turn into something more intense, and this can seem to happen in an instant! While you should certainly consider new ideas, they probably need more definition before putting them into action. Even if it’s tempting to do so, avoid letting someone else make the decisions for you today. You are drawing people to you, but it’s important not to make big statements or promises now.
PiscesOn this day before a New Moon, dear Pisces, you might consider what you want to change or improve, especially about your approach to play, leisure, recreation, and love. At the same time, it’s better to unwind and regroup. Mental restlessness can lead to exciting discoveries today, but you might also misjudge a situation with current transits obscuring perceptions. It’s best to allow your mind some exercise but wait to make final decisions. A project may need a second look, and you may need to make adjustments to the time and energy allotted to it. There may be a sense that you have so many things to do that you don’t know where to begin. Try not to waste time on feeling overwhelmed — pick something small and work from there. When it comes to news or what others are saying to you, double-check facts. It’s especially important that you avoid taking on too much or promising too much.
