Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour eye for detail is excellent early today, dear Aries. A Mercury-Saturn trine offers a feeling of groundedness through communications with relatives, acquaintances, friends, or even yourself through journaling. Positive feedback can fuel your motivation to do your best. As the day advances, energies shift considerably. With Mercury square Neptune, you can be more sensitive to imbalances in your environment, including situations that are too messy and hectic. There may be some second-guessing of plans, as minor weaknesses reveal themselves. A conversation or news received now can be misleading, and it’s probably best to let time tell.
TaurusEnergies in the first half of the day encourage practical thinking, dear Taurus. You might decide to face something you’ve let slide or put on a shelf, and it’s satisfying! Conversations can be constructive, and you may learn a trick or two that helps you advance your goals. It’s easier than usual to ferret out opportunities, and you benefit from a bright, clear frame of mind. However, as the day advances, a Mercury-Neptune square can confuse matters. Creative and imaginative activities are likely to fare a lot better than practical ones, but it’s a good idea to be vigilant if dealing with the latter. While you’ve been more objective about your financial state, talents, and resources, facts are unlikely to be clear later today. Wishful or fearful thinking can skew your perceptions. Avoid letting others’ demands or beating around the bush drain you. Quiet activities suit you just fine, and in fact, tend to bring out your best just for the moment.
GeminiEarly today, you’re quick to identify and focus on priorities, dear Gemini. You could be motivated to follow through on a dream, pet project, or another endeavor close to your heart. Life may not be colorful in the first part of the day, but reliability can be a great comfort, and it’s a good idea to take on some form of organizing efforts. Your imagination grows as the day advances, but possibly to excess, and it’s best to avoid making too much or too little of a situation. It may not be easy to see professional or reputation matters clearly. Aim to use your imagination constructively by focusing on possible positive outcomes, but remember that it’s best not to act on ventures and ideas just now since they’re more likely to be impractical. Use this time to imagine possibilities without jumping to conclusions.
CancerEarly today, a Mercury-Saturn transit is good for firming up and securing your life in little ways, dear Cancer, and it feels great to do so. You seek results rather than ideas in the first half of the day. You prefer to channel your mental energies into something worthwhile or substantial. You’re likely to have remarkably accurate perceptions about an issue related to unfinished business. Work behind the scenes can prosper. While paying attention to details helps you, boundaries blur as the day advances. There can be quite a play on your perceptions and beliefs, and you could be tempted to turn on the blinders about a matter that you don’t want to face just yet. Mercury and Neptune form a square, and it’s best to make an extra effort to avoid glossing over important details. Try to assess a matter that seems too good to be true before banking on it now. If you’re feeling restless with your routine, but you also feel the need to put things in order, which is quite likely now, consider attending to both needs in little ways.
LeoA Mercury-Saturn trine influencing the first half of the day anchors you, dear Leo. You might benefit from some organized thinking. A reinforcing, supportive alliance or conversation that builds your confidence and optimism can figure strongly. As the day advances, you go a different route altogether. Wishful thinking can interfere with seeing a situation, particularly regarding emotional attachments, relationships, and finances. It’s not the time to be indiscriminate with money, especially when it comes to others handling it! Neptune in your solar eighth house is challenging Mercury, and it’s best to keep abreast of what’s going on with shared resources. You might need to draw some boundaries with people if they’re pushing your limits. Or, you recognize the need to take better care of spiritual needs before driving forward with your goals, and this is more likely the more you’ve neglected to seek out inspiration in recent times. If you feel a bit drained, you may need some fresh inspiration. Try not to let a temporary lack of direction discourage you. Instead, try to welcome a pause or break in your life.
VirgoIn the first half of the day, a Mercury-Saturn aspect grounds you, dear Virgo. Your responsible side is in the spotlight, mainly through your work, services, or leadership. A sense of mission or purpose boosts your productivity. You can be focused on making long-term plans, or you’re on the right track with your chores, routines, job, or health. As the day advances, your interactions may be confusing, or you could feel somewhat out of sync with someone as Mercury forms a square with Neptune. Be vigilant if putting your faith in someone or something, or aim to reserve judgment on a matter until more information surfaces. Instead, this transit might leave you wanting to escape some of your duties, or there can be fogginess or something left up in the air that impacts your career or direction. Feeling drained of energy or enthusiasm is temporary and reminds you to take a break or get extra rest. Doing so may help restore your vision, or you could find a new source of inspiration.
LibraYou want to get on track in the first half of the day, dear Libra, with Mercury and Saturn in harmony. Focusing on what’s doable will do wonders for you, even if it means making a bit of progress rather than big wins. Sharing your ideas or vision with others, teaching, and studying can be productive. You can benefit from taking things step by step. Or, you might decide to focus on a particular project and make solid advances with it. As the day advances, energies shift, and the desire to experience something more than the ordinary can come in like a rush. However, a Mercury-Neptune transit can play with your perceptions if you’re not careful or aware of it. Honor your need to learn and know more, but be extra vigilant if life’s circumstances keep you in situations where you need to pay particular attention to details. Misleading information may be floating around you, and the tendency to forget or overlook things runs high. Consider that discontent may have its root in the need for more fulfilling, creative, or imaginative work. Make time and space, if you can, for artistic or relaxing activities.
ScorpioIn the first part of the day, a Mercury-Saturn transit helps you see things for what they are, not what you wish or fear them to be, dear Scorpio. A feeling of emotional strength helps buoy you. There is an attraction to what’s beneath the surface or hidden from sight, and you can delight in trying to figure things out or solve a mystery. A dilemma could unravel or seem to resolve itself. This transit is quite helpful for gaining clarity about an emotional, intimate, or family issue. Loans or practical ways to improve home life can be in the offing. As the day advances, however, Mercury forms a square with Neptune, and there can be a sense that things are up in the air, especially regarding money, support, and relationships, leaving you in a state of limbo. Certainly, you can feel in a state of limbo. Ideally, it becomes a convenient time for a pause that refreshes. Consider that wishful thinking can easily distort your perceptions and decisions under the influence of this transit, and it’s better to put your imagination to more creative, empowering, and productive use.
SagittariusEarly today, a Mercury-Saturn transit helps ground your thinking or communications, dear Sagittarius, particularly in one-to-one relationships. There can be a constructive conversation or session with someone that makes it easier to organize your thoughts or puts you into a more practical, realistic frame of mind. Someone could be an excellent sounding board for your ideas. Focusing on a project or writing out your thoughts can have positive effects. Problems are best solved logically, step by step, and in an organized fashion. The more you tune out the fluff and tune into the facts, the more valuable and useful ideas and plans emerge. However, as the day advances, this changes. Mercury heads into a square with Neptune, and there can be some lack of clarity. It’s a good time for dreaming up new ideas but no longer ideal for discovering concrete answers or commitments. There can be mixed signals and off rhythms and patterns in relationships. It may be best to let go of a need for definitive signs or answers, as you’ll be better off enjoying the moment and taking a pause that refreshes. It’s possible that you need some diffusion right now.
CapricornEarly today, you’re paying more attention to detail, work, health, and problem-solving, dear Capricorn. Small jobs and duties are in stronger focus. You are less inclined to think about the bigger picture or to do long-term planning as you zero in on your daily affairs and routines in the first half of the day. Logical answers to questions satisfy most, and organizing your thinking is soothing. However, as the day advances, signals are far less clear. It’s a time to be open to possibilities, but energies are not ideal for locking things down. If you’ve forgotten to feed your needs for emotional refreshment, you could feel a little drained or deflated as Mercury forms a square with Neptune. It’s not easy to stay on course mentally, and it may be best to give yourself a break from heavy thinking and planning.
AquariusEarly today, diving into a project that requires attention to detail is satisfying, dear Aquarius. Even if conversations are not especially colorful, they can be helpful and instructive. Keeping things simple and methodical works best for now. Applying yourself to constructive activities or hobbies can help you get your priorities straight. The day’s energies shift considerably as it advances. Wishful (or fearful) thinking can skew your perceptions. Mercury’s square to Neptune tends to blur boundaries, and people might skirt or overlook details or the truth. Go over all of your duties and if you are up to date, give yourself permission to enjoy yourself! Wait before making big decisions, particularly related to matters of the heart and financial affairs. It may be that you need to take a break from overthinking. Watch for a tendency to borrow from the future to satisfy a temporary desire. Otherwise, take a pause and reconsider or reimagine your plans.
PiscesWith a Mercury-Saturn transit influencing early today, dear Pisces, the spotlight is on common sense and a desire for a plan or strategy. It’s a good time to organize or do something productive behind the scenes. Focusing on what you can do to improve your personal life can be soothing and empowering–you feel better if you meet your responsibilities. There can be a positive show of support through good advice or reliability. You feel emotionally equipped to face issues that you would usually prefer to avoid or put off. Domestic matters benefit from a practical approach. Still, as the day advances, energies shift, and some confusion or lack of clarity can crop up with family or concerning domestic affairs. Interactions today can be unclear or open-ended, with logical Mercury in challenging aspect with Neptune in your sign. Someone could be pushing for an answer, but you may not feel ready to make that kind of definition or commitment. While being in limbo about a matter can be frustrating, it can also be a chance to look for inconsistencies in plans. Reorienting your thinking is a process that can take you closer to your spiritual needs, ideals, and personal dreams.
