Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou see more options than usual today, dear Aries, and possibilities seem to open up as a result. However, there can be some overshooting. With Venus heading to a square with Jupiter, your desire for comfort can be insistent. Overindulgences might be an issue today. Aim to be kind to your future self with your choices today! Moods can swing up and down, and emotional judgment can be off. But if you can manage to keep expectations of others (and yourself) reasonable, things will flow more naturally. Try to schedule leisurely activities now, as you’ll unlikely be in the frame of mind to get a lot done.
TaurusToday’s energies encourage slowing things down a little so that you can center yourself and build your strength or sense of security, dear Taurus. Still, there can be some exaggeration in the air. Aim to separate the fluff and gossip from the substance as best as possible. As well, try to enjoy some new ideas without investing too quickly in those that may not pan out. It’s probably too soon, so ease forward slowly. You can have a strong desire to reach out and learn through others, but some shyness or hesitation may be involved. Take what’s said around you with a grain of salt. It’s not necessarily about deception today, but more about overestimating our capabilities, especially to fulfill promises.
GeminiLearning new things and getting busy mentally are especially satisfying today, dear Gemini. Your need for movement and variety is in the foreground. The Moon spends the day in your sign, encouraging your attention to your emotional needs. Later today, the energies of a Venus-Jupiter square come into influence, and it’s best to watch for hidden costs, both socially and financially. There is a tendency to go big and ignore the essential details temporarily. Of course, bigger isn’t always better. Avoid making big promises and believing in ones made to you. It’s not that people are intentionally trying to mislead–it may very well be the opposite–but perhaps overestimating their abilities. Some moderation is appropriate and can turn a potentially awkward day into a happy, rewarding one.
CancerToday is good for laying low and catching a break, dear Cancer. As the day advances, it can be tempting to seek happiness outside of yourself, but it’s best to remind yourself that you create it from within. Committing to something down the road may seem just fine right now, but later can prove to be a burden. It may be best to keep things simple. There is a competitive and possibly over-the-top energy to the day. Keeping within reasonable boundaries would serve you best, even if the temptation is to overdo and overindulge.
LeoYou might enjoy helping someone solve a problem or focusing on some of your dreams and plans today, dear Leo. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, encouraging your involvement with others. Desires and new endeavors tend to burn out fast if they’re based on whims or pure restlessness. Watch for the temptation to sign up for more than you can handle or deliver with a Venus-Jupiter challenging aspect on the horizon. Optimism is a strength, but if it leads you into unrealistic territory, you may need to keep things real. A wait-and-see attitude can come in handy but aim to embrace a sense that changes are necessary for greater fulfillment in the weeks ahead.
VirgoMeeting your responsibilities is important for emotional satisfaction today with the Moon transiting your solar tenth house all day, dear Virgo. Still, the day’s transits are not especially practical or focused. Good intentions can be at the root of taking on a new endeavor or challenge, but if plans are not well laid out, they could be burdensome later on. We’re heading toward a Venus-Jupiter square that tends to create too much optimism, pushing expectations high. It’s better to wait a bit before going forward. Moods can swing today, and it’s wise to try to distinguish between a whim and a genuine desire. Aim to cultivate emotional self-control for the important things; otherwise, indulge yourself in moderation.
LibraYou’re more inclined to share your ideas, skills, talents, or knowledge with others today, dear Libra. With the Moon in your spirit sector all day, it’s an excellent time to connect with your needs to pour special energy into a cause, relationship, or personal interest. However, as the day advances and we get closer to a Venus-Jupiter square, there’s some tendency to shoot too high. You can have high expectations, or it’s tempting to make big, bold moves that could be premature or over the top. Going a little overboard might be fun now, but for the essential things, it’s better to respect your usual boundaries. With matters of the heart, try not to rush or push anything.
ScorpioThe urge to splurge can come on strongly today, dear Scorpio, with a Venus-Jupiter square in play. You might aim to tame restlessness so you can enjoy the positive vibes and spirits around you. Ask yourself whether something you’re craving now will benefit you later or whether it might be cause for regret. It can be hard to take advice right now, so try to keep yourself in the position to manage your own resources right now. If you’d rather not receive unsolicited advice, you might decide to keep certain things to yourself. Taming restless feelings can help you enjoy a fun and rewarding day.
SagittariusYou can experience some restlessness in spots today, dear Sagittarius, and misjudging things is possible with Venus heading into a square to Jupiter. If life demands some concentration, focus, or discipline, you might feel at a loss or resist it. This feeling is temporary, and allowing your mind to wander can be helpful if you reel it back in from time to time. Watch that you don’t get too carried away by an idea or sensation. It’s important to remember your boundaries under this transit, aiming to take it easy with money and pleasurable pursuits. Enjoy yourself, but remember that you don’t need to go over the top to do so.
CapricornGood energy is with you for investigations of all kinds today, dear Capricorn, particularly related to work or health. As the day advances, a Venus-Jupiter square comes into influence, which can mean wants come on suddenly. However, they likely stem from restlessness rather than genuine desire. Going all out will not necessarily improve your life, even if it appears this way today! This aspect could point to conflicts between the demands of family and partnership. Even though you can be in a great mood now, it can be a tenuous one, as it’s a little too easy to burst your bubble. Keep expectations reasonable to even things out today.
AquariusWith Venus and Jupiter heading toward a square aspect, dear Aquarius, it’s best to avoid promising too much or overstating your feelings today, which might eventually cause a problem even if it saves you now! With your current good mood, there can be a feeling that you can take on anything, but overshooting is likely. When your mood and energy level out later, you won’t want to be stuck with extra work or debt. Fortunately, today’s Moon transit supports creative success and enjoyment. It’s a good time to explore your needs for self-expression, even if you may need to take different routes or make detours now.
PiscesYou might choose to keep your distance from problems, at least temporarily, so that you can take a break from overthinking today, dear Pisces. Comforting and familiar activities boost your mood with the Moon in your home and family sector all day. As the day advances, a Venus-Jupiter square comes into play, and while it may promote a good mood, you might want to keep expectations of others realistic, especially in matters of the heart. It’s probably best to watch for spending more than you can afford in the long run. If a mood or desire comes on suddenly, aim to question whether it’s genuinely coming from the heart. More likely, it’s a whim and won’t stick.
