Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and your daily affairs grab much of your attention, dear Aries. Your focus is on the details. You can be just fine going off the grid just a bit as you pour your energy into something absorbing. With this transit, you might catch the organizing bug and have a strong desire to sort something out. Today and tomorrow are good for clearing up various chores and tasks, as you’re inclined to want to straighten things out. Even with this practical focus, as the day advances, conversations about emotional or personal matters can be most rewarding. Harmonizing with family or solving a practical problem can be in positive focus. You’re in great shape for catching up with someone, the news, or a special interest. There can be a supportive conversation or a bit of advice that works well for you.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your pleasure sector, and you’re enjoying a little more exposure or interaction, dear Taurus. Your mood is celebratory, and you’re in particularly good shape for communicating, connecting, and friendship. You especially enjoy some time spent freer of worries about your responsibilities. Opportunities are likely to emerge for entertainment, leisure time, or play. There can also be very nurturing, supportive teaching and learning moments today. Sharing ideas and developing rich new ideas can be rewarding with Mercury’s happy connections now. This can be a good day for putting your talents and skills to beneficial use.
GeminiYou’re in strong shape for drawing up marketing plans or budgets, dear Gemini, and researching health and wellness techniques can be fruitful. You might give particular thought to money, work, health, and habits, and plans to take better care of these areas of your life can emerge or come together. Your mind is fertile and resourceful now. The Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, and it’s a comfortable place to be as long as you’re in the mood to lay low, relax, and enjoy familiar faces and places. You have good support for winding down and getting in touch with your needs, wants, and feelings.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, encouraging you to connect, learn, and share, dear Cancer. This transit has the effect of pulling you out of your shell. Your curiosity is aroused, you’re more observant, and you may end up doing a lot of chatting or a wide variety of activities. You’re likely to find natural outlets for communicating your ideas and expressing yourself. It’s also a fine time to pursue a personal interest. You’re getting your message across quite well and personably. In some significant way today, your ideas are wanted. The pieces of a puzzle might come together on a mental level.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, signaling a time for getting your bearings, dear Leo. You can come to a better sense of where to put your energies, including your money and time, at this time of the lunar month. Emotions settle down, and this feels right. A good feeling of your priorities and a practical focus seem to work best for you at the moment. As the day advances, you’re in particularly good shape for work behind the scenes, research, or conversations about private matters that feel natural and lead to healing with Mercury heading toward a trine to Ceres. This transit recently occurred while Mercury was retrograde, but now, pieces of a puzzle seem to fall into place, or a mystery is solved. You seek some form of emotional balance, and a comfortable pace is particularly appealing.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, and you are in line for some “me time.” At this time of the lunar month, you’re seeking an emotional connection with the world around you, perhaps a sign that you’re emotionally alive, and others are hearing you. Whatever pampering means to you at this time in your life, this is a time for putting your needs first. This transit encourages you to feel and enjoy your emotions and tend to your emotional needs and wants. You could be desiring an overhaul of sorts. While this can bring your emotions very close to the surface, you’re nevertheless focused on fun ideas and creative musings rather than your neglected personal needs. There is good energy for getting places in your conversations with others.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your hidden sector, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to lay low emotionally. Even if you’re called to perform, there is a good part of you that is functioning off the grid on an emotional level during this brief transit. It’s an excellent time to seek out refreshing, rejuvenating, and low-key activities. Still, if you need to look at a problem from a different perspective, today is strong for it. Thinking is smart, and minds are open. You see options where there didn’t seem to be any in the past, particularly related to your larger goals, career, work, health, and money matters. If you can manage spending time free of interference so that you can do your own thing, you’ll likely benefit.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your friendship zone, stimulating a desire to connect with others in fun, easy ways, dear Scorpio. Or, if you happen to be in a lone-wolf phase, you crave a stronger connection to your dreams and happiness goals. Creatively speaking, this is a perfect day for new ideas. There is good energy for you to rearrange and redesign your projects, plans, or personal environment. There is good energy for personal attraction, as people are noticing you for your more appealing qualities, even if you are in a rather detached mood. You get a feeling that you can accomplish pretty much whatever you set out to do now, as long as you can do it at your own comfortable pace.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, dear Sagittarius, and it’s a more public, accountable time when people notice what you’ve done and pat you on the back for it. Alternatively, you may take special notice of your goals and how close you are to achieving them. It’s a good time to sort out your priorities and pick up the slack, if necessary. Your ambition is pleasantly stimulated today, and you might enjoy a cleansing conversation about a personal matter. You’re in fine shape for thinking up long-term goals or reconsidering ways to achieve current ones. It’s also a good time for willingly making adjustments on a mental level rather than stubbornly sticking with outdated methods or ideas. You can do some good thinking about your projects and goals.
CapricornThe Moon transits in harmony with your sign today, dear Capricorn, nudging you out of your shell. You’re feeling more spirited and liberated, but you’re also in good shape to think about your bigger plans. You can feel quite drive to feed your desire for knowledge, variety, and activity, and you’re in no mood for the usual fare. Communication, particularly with a partner, can be especially helpful, fertile, and even healing with Mercury’s connections. Counseling or teaching/learning situations are well-starred. Conversations, musings, or studies are likely to be rewarding and inspiring. Creative inspiration can come from a partner or close friend. Sharing your ideas and dreams can give you or a relationship a boost.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of regeneration, dear Aquarius, and you’re inclined to seek out activities with more meaning, depth, or power to transform your life even in small ways. It’s a time of the lunar month for seeking a meaningful connection to a person or project. You’re in a great position to get into deeper touch with your desires, needs, and wants. There may be a greater need to accommodate rather than pursue personal goals at this time of the year. It can be a reflective time when strategizing makes more sense than taking direct action. While stepping back and observing can be most rewarding, conversations can be satisfying today, particularly as the day advances. Communications tend to be friendly, fair, and quite helpful.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector today and makes some flowing aspects while there, dear Pisces. Harmonizing and balancing are natural drives at this time. You might be able to enjoy a new perspective on your life, whether this happens naturally or through feedback or the eyes of someone close to you. It’s a good time to release some pressure and redirect more of your energy into your relationships. Energy levels may not be excellent at this time, but they don’t need to be at this time in the lunar cycle. You might enjoy boosting up someone’s confidence. Today can bring a wonderful teaching (or learning) moment. You are full of sincere, helpful advice, and others appreciate you for your unique insight.
