Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou gravitate to activities that improve your life in small but important ways today, dear Aries. It’s a time for feeling pleasantly stimulated and motivated. Your emotions are intense but contained, and you’re particularly resourceful right now. Conversely, as the day advances, focusing on facts and figures can be challenging, making it a better time for freeform activities than directed ones. Conversations can be vague or even guilt-ridden, particularly with or about a child, partner, or love interest. Channeling your energy constructively may not be easy, but if it’s not necessary, then give yourself a break.
TaurusWith the Moon in your partnership sector all day, you’re looking for interaction or feedback, dear Taurus. Others positively influence you, gently motivating you to take action or do something fun and interesting that you may not have felt inspired to do otherwise. You may feel the need for reassurance today, but as the day advances, decisions are tough to make, as alternatives leave you feeling between the proverbial rock and a hard place. You may not feel thoroughly understood, particularly regarding a friend, long-term goal, or plan. Try not to look outside of yourself for answers. Instead, give yourself more time to get in touch with your intuition.
GeminiWith the Moon in your solar sixth house today, dear Gemini, putting in the effort towards something productive, however big or small, is what satisfies most. Fortunately, the Moon connects with Mars, helping with the motivation factor. You’re striving towards a more engaged and healthier lifestyle. As the day advances, there can be some problems getting your message across, but it’s temporary. Take more care than usual to make yourself exceptionally clear, or consider waiting to present your case for a better time. Talking about a relationship or relationship problems with people on the outside of it may be costly. Sometimes keeping certain things between the two people involved is a better solution. Relax and reflect, and avoid taking things too seriously right now.
CancerIn the first half of the day, you can feel a stronger sense of purpose and vision, dear Cancer. You benefit from an easy flow of creativity and pleasing communications. You gravitate to activities that entertain and offer a fun and healthy challenge. A passionate interest in what you’re doing is attractive to others. Your mind wanders later today, however, and distractions are likely. Avoid shopping for big-ticket items now, as you may not see things clearly. Do your best to relax and tame restlessness with healthy, happy activities rather than adding more to your already full plate.
LeoYou crave more familiarity with today’s Moon, dear Leo. It’s time to explore your inner world and get in better touch with your needs for nurture and comfort. You’re motivated to make your life more comfortable and to enjoy family or domestic life more completely. It’s a beautiful time for comfortably working on any recent money-making or business project at a satisfying pace. Connecting with loved ones can be in focus. However, as the day advances, it’s more challenging to concentrate and focus. You may even experience some hesitance and wrestle with self-doubt with your perceptions, possibly for good reason! Making a stand on a matter can somehow backfire, and there can be some mental bobbing and weaving. Let your heart catch up with your mind before coming to firm conclusions.
VirgoToday’s Moon transits keep you busy and mentally engaged, dear Virgo. You can be exceptionally resourceful, and while you’re in a friendly mood, you seem to achieve the most independently today. Some healthy competition might motivate you now, and you express yourself with intention. With your action-oriented mindset today, you can be especially interested in starting something new or building upon a fabulous idea. Learning can be exciting. Conversely, as the day advances, there’s tricky energy with you for relationships as you can find yourself at cross-purposes with someone. You might worry about a past poor choice or mistake and take it too seriously. You might also have a vague sense that you’re missing something important, finding it difficult to commit to any one task wholeheartedly. The trick may be to avoid juggling too many ideas at the same time.
LibraIn the first half of the day, you’re emotionally settled but still quite action-oriented, dear Libra. You’re motivated to be productive, and you’re especially resourceful. While your needs for steadiness and comfort are strong, you’re ready to pursue these things determinedly. A relationship, joy, or creature comfort can be the focus. Later today, it’s harder to stay focused. You might come up with an exciting idea or conclusion that, on further inspection, doesn’t carry weight. Social interactions or issues can get in the way of your work and vice versa now. Distractions are plenty, or you are more sensitive to them. Worrying about the opinion of others can be another way to waste time and energy. Consider that winding down rather than working yourself up is a better strategy temporarily.
ScorpioYou’re especially noticeable today, and in the first half of the day, quite motivated to tackle a big project or refine one that you’ve already set into motion, dear Scorpio. Asserting yourself is natural and goes over very well. Activities related to networking and innovative work can fare particularly well. However, as the day advances, temporary doubts and confusion can arise. Watch for procrastination or multi-tasking that takes you away from what is essential. Something communicated could be taken the wrong way. It’s not the most organized of times, so you may become a little frustrated if you’re in the position to focus or put things into order. If possible, take a breather if certain areas of your life are not coming together well. Adjustments in the ways you approach others may be necessary now.
SagittariusThis is the time of the lunar month for an emotional reset, dear Sagittarius, and there’s a focus on rest, reflection, and privacy. You may be reorienting yourself as you prepare for a new beginning. The Moon connects to fireball Mars early today, and while you’re going under the radar in some way, you’re also focusing on your goals and ambitions. However, as the day advances, it’s not as easy to concentrate. Indecision can be good if it keeps you from making choices you don’t fully own, which can be the case with a Mercury-Neptune aspect in play. You could become excited about what you see or discover later today, but then second-guess whether it was only a fantasy. It’s best not to rely on others’ answers temporarily. The general tendency to be in limbo is with you, but it shouldn’t detract from the positive potential of the day for rest and constructive imagination.
CapricornThe energies of the first half of the day inspire pleasantly busy, engaging activities, dear Capricorn. You might enjoy sharing your ideas and good company. It can be a spirited time that holds some room for exploration and spontaneity, even if this is only on a mental level. Cooperative activities that break the routine, boost your spirits, and/or expand your mind can be most rewarding. As the day advances, focusing on specific tasks may not be easy as your mind tends to drift very quickly. Needs you’ve neglected deserve extra attention. There is some tendency for misunderstandings. Cut yourself some slack, and make your biggest project yourself and your needs, if this is possible.
AquariusToday’s Moon spotlights your responsibilities and duties, dear Aquarius, but also your goals, which can be exciting. You can be pleasantly productive in the first half of the day, and you have a rather competent air that compels others to follow your lead. You’re active but pacing yourself well, and this feels right. As much as you’d like clear answers and definitions, you may need to settle for murky later today, however. It’s temporary, but perhaps a bit of a downer. Perceptions are blurry with a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge, and people may be beating around the bush. Backing off from a problem can help let your intuition click in, leading to a better solution if you are patient enough to wait for it.
PiscesThere can be some extra excitement in a key relationship today, dear Pisces. You might crave a change of scenery and refreshing activities. Natural discoveries and spontaneity figure strongly. While energies favor directness and activity, as the day advances, solid answers are not forthcoming. With a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge, as much as you’d like to sort something out logically, another part of you would prefer to let go of problems and consider the bigger picture. This can lead to some frustration unless you find ways to attend to both needs or come to a compromise. It’s best to focus on doing one thing at a time to prevent feelings of overwhelm leading to procrastination.
