Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour desire to solve problems and tackle your projects is real, but the social side of things can distract you today, dear Aries. You can be unsettled about a matter related to a friend or associate, which can interfere with productivity. Breaks in the routine are also likely. Someone is contrary, or a relationship is complicated. Certainly, people are giving off very mixed signals now, but overthinking things only leads to trouble. Whether to enlist help or go solo on a matter can be a dilemma. Your best bet will be to find ways to satisfy both your needs for companionship or solidarity and self-reliance rather than feel you have to choose one or the other. This time period favors a go-slow approach. Aim to let rest motivate you to let go of outdated conditions or habits. It can be a good time to clear out psychic junk and get in touch with changes you need to make so that you can take charge.
TaurusYou’re busier, more connected, and involved than usual today, dear Taurus, but also perhaps a little high-strung. There is a tendency to stir up some trouble or to act on a whim, but try not to allow inner restlessness to set you back. It’s best to aim for self-understanding to get to the root of problems rather than use a band-aid fix. There can be changes in plans or an inability to rely on others, but you can come up with some satisfying conclusions or strategies in response. Paying attention to details, doing editing work, or simply slowing things down can be in order. The Moon heads into your sign today, where it will transit for over two days, and you can enjoy a fresh start on an emotional level.
GeminiWhile you have a strong desire to stick close to home or with familiar situations today, dear Gemini, another part of you is inclined to feel that you’re missing out as you do, and this combination can lead to a restless, discontented frame of mind. Watch for fickleness now, as you could put a lot of energy into getting what you want but not appreciating it once you have it! This can be a sign that you need a change of pace. Work on making adjustments today rather than making bold moves. Later today, the Moon enters your privacy sector, indicating a need for some emotional refreshment. It’s not the only reason to pull back a little from things: a Jupiter-Saturn influence is in play, encouraging you to keep things real and avoid pushing the limits. It’s best not to take on brand new initiatives.
CancerThere can be surprises in your relationships or social life that throw you for a loop, dear Cancer. Still, it’s best to stay centered and calm rather than focus on being interrupted if there are changes in plans to manage. Transits this week remind you to be realistic, and that growth should be steady for it to stick! Refining current projects, particularly related to your career, money, support system, or work, makes the most sense now. This trend will be even more important later this month when Jupiter turns retrograde, and you could be getting in the mindset of “slow but steady” starting now. The Moon heads into your social sector today for a stay of over two days, and happiness goals can be a wonderful focal point.
LeoToday’s Venus-Uranus transit introduces some surprise elements to your day, dear Leo. Although this can be disruptive on some level, it can lead to new ideas or even breakthroughs in thinking about past matters or long-term goals. You might come to a better understanding of your ambitions. New visions of your future motivate and inspire you today despite minor interruptions. At the same time, transits now remind you to take things a step at a time for best results. You might reconsider a long-term goal or deal with something you overlooked to clear the path for moving forward. It’s not the time to give up on a project just because it’s slowing down or taking too long. Instead, a good strategy is to attend to duties that will help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress.
VirgoYou can experience some unrest or conflicted feelings about a friendship or project today, dear Virgo. It’s not the best day for follow-through. There could be a change of plans or difficulty getting others to go along with your initiatives. Current transits highlight a need to go slowly, in general, and especially with a work or health initiative. A steady pace will help you get back on track. A checkpoint now can be handy in the long run. The Moon continues its transit of your intimacy sector but later moves into your spirit sector, and you can feel as if you’re coming alive. You could be itching to learn or experience something new.
LibraYou can feel unsettled about a relationship or work issue today, dear Libra, and distractions are plenty. The best way to handle current influences is to proactively look for those things you genuinely need to change rather than let restlessness control your mood. It’s probably best to pace yourself with a Jupiter-Saturn influence this week, especially in areas where you’ve been going too fast or pushing too far, mainly related to relationships and special projects. The Moon heads into your solar eighth house later today, which can put you in a more contemplative frame of mind. With this transit, it’s natural to find something absorbing and consuming to keep you busy and engaged.
ScorpioWith today’s transits, there can be a noncommittal theme, dear Scorpio, or a sense that you can’t rely on plans or others temporarily. There can be some fickleness to deal with now, whether within yourself or through others. While you may need a small change of pace, overarching influences this week suggest a slow but steady approach is best. Overdoing even a good thing can spoil things, especially related to home life, work, or routines. Today, your energy levels might not be up to par, and you could have a tough time making a solid decision. The Moon moves into your partnership sector later today, where it will visit for over two days, and you’re more focused on your relationships.
SagittariusPeople may not be as reliable as you’d like today, dear Sagittarius, but this can be about scattered energies and not something to take personally. Whims can take hold. Try to treat interruptions or schedule changes as unimportant in the long run. It’s a time for making edits and refinements instead of pushing forward too eagerly. In some ways, this may even be a comforting thought if you’ve been particularly excited about your current projects but perhaps taking on a little too much. Pacing yourself works best now, and it feels right. The Moon moves into your work and health sector today, and you feel emotionally satisfied only once you’ve handled your duties.
CapricornThere can be some mixed signals to manage today, dear Capricorn, and communications are tricky. For one thing, you may be second-guessing your first impression or past choices. For another, restlessness can lead to unusual whims or desires, but your heart may not be fully into it. You might only need a change of pace. All in all, it’s unlikely to be anything drastic or permanent, but it could lead to a few misunderstandings or minor tensions. Keep the status quo if possible now. It’s most important to pace yourself with finances, business, and home life. Circumstances might remind you that it’s better to edit, refine, and cover all your bases than to push forward too eagerly or take on new projects.
AquariusInfluences active today can stir up some minor trouble, dear Aquarius, but they can also help redirect you along a better path. You could find it hard to satisfy an itch, but you might consider that you need a change of pace. Even a tiny change in your routine can be pleasant. Look for things to update. Still, circumstances can remind you of the need to slow down and make adjustments so that you can make progress later. If enthusiasm dampens a little, know that it’s temporary. Another indicator of the benefits of pacing yourself is the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house for a stay of over two days–it’s the time in the lunar month for centering yourself and connecting with your inner world.
PiscesToday’s Venus-Uranus minor challenging influence can quicken the pace, dear Pisces, or leave you feeling somewhat restless and impatient. Look for ways to deal with making constructive changes rather than random ones. In truth, it may be best to conserve your energy, observe, and strategize. There may be a delay to deal with or an apparent backward step with a pursuit, and editing or refining can be in order. Big or bold moves are not in favor just for now. The Moon moves into your communications sector for over two days, and your curiosity increases. You could be doing more connecting and communicating.
