Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re inclined to do a lot of thinking about your family or home life and goals these days, dear Aries. You might discover ways to connect your innermost dreams with your highest visions. However, when it comes to career or business goals, there can be clashing desires and ideas to deal with before going forward. Ultimately, conflicts arising now will help clarify your true desires and goals. For now, what you desire and think you should do can be mismatched. Nervous tension or haste can lead to making mistakes, speaking too soon, or launching a project before it’s ready to go. Do your best to watch for these potential issues. Fortunately, the Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, boosting your inclination to observe first before jumping to action.
TaurusThe Moon spends another day in your partnership sector, dear Taurus, and you see your life from a different perspective. Still, there is some tendency to see-saw between over-analyzing a person’s feelings or a relationship itself to letting go and allowing things to flow as they please. Ideally, you either pick a side or find a balance since staying in limbo can be most frustrating if it goes on too long. Getting wrapped up in disagreements about ideas, beliefs, or the past can be stimulating if kept at a level of debate, but may not be worth your time if you become worked up. What others say or believe can frustrate you, but if you can let it go, you’ll be better off and better rested. Watch for impatience or restlessness that can complicate your day or fray your nerves, and instead tap into courage. Look for inspiration and avoid rushing things that can lead to spoilage. Putting ambitions aside for a while can be helpful and refreshing. Choose your battles wisely now.
GeminiYou may not be seeing eye to eye on a matter related to finances today, dear Gemini. Decisions about money and personal possessions are more complicated than you imagined them to be, making it difficult to arrive at a plan or conclusion. Swinging from an analytical to an intuitive approach may happen a few times before you get to a nice balance. Certainly, restlessness can cause some inconveniences today, but it doesn’t have to rule your day. It may be that you’re hungry for emotional stimulation but don’t know where to find it. A busy pace can suit you just fine; it’s haste you should avoid most. A blunt approach may not go over well, either. You may be able to push through a problem that’s been lingering, and the Moon spending the day in your sector of chores and duties inclines you to take care of business.
CancerThe Moon spends another day in your sector of fun, love, and hobbies, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to seek out rewarding channels for enjoying and expressing yourself. They’re a little easier to find today. Still, there can be some tension related to viewpoints. You can have a hard time getting on the same page as someone about an idea or plan. You’re in a frame of mind that’s self-motivated and detailed, and you could feel that others are not paying attention to the right details. Career or outside responsibilities can be a little tricky today, and plans may not seem quite as doable, or you could find that a key person isn’t getting behind your goals. This may very well be temporary, so avoid making important decisions based solely on what’s happening today. It might also be that you’re a little too impatient to get something done or to achieve a goal, and everything else becomes a distraction as a result.
LeoThe Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, dear Leo, encouraging you to settle in and get comfortable. Decisions can be either too quick or too agonizing now, and you can feel divided about a health or work matter. Whether or not to pick it apart or take a step back from it and let it reveal itself to you intuitively can be a question now. Some timing can be off, and it’s best to manage these things coolly and patiently, as difficult as that may be right now. Try not to succumb to pressures to push too hard, and watch for differences of opinion that can consume too much of your day. While there may be some disagreements on goals or clashing desires experienced today, you’re likely to find some time to unwind and decompress if you prioritize these things.
VirgoThere can be some tensions over different viewpoints and problems with decision-making again today, dear Virgo. A disagreement on an opinion may have more to do with perceptions of opposition, as you may be more on the same page than you think. The trouble today is that differences seem more distinct, and it can be challenging to see the common ground. For some, there can be conflicts brewing regarding the depth of a commitment. Jealousy, sharing of power, and level of involvement can be issues on the table. Indeed, new ideas can result from disagreement, but it’s best not to communicate too quickly to avoid complications. The Moon spends another day in your communications sector, and you’re seeking some mental stimulation. In truth, today’s transit can be overstimulating in this regard, but if you aim for moderation and balance, you can learn some interesting things.
LibraThe Moon spends another day in your resources sector, dear Libra, and you’re seeking some harmony and peace. You quickly sense when too much is too much. You’re gearing up for some busy days ahead, so do what you can to enjoy the moment. Still, there can be some tendency to disagree about domestic matters or partnership and sharing with people close to you today. From conflicting desires or goals, you might end up understanding your own needs better, but it can be tricky getting to this point. Try not to rush things, and avoid taking on too many problems that are not your own. If you find yourself caught in the middle of an argument, try to back out of it as gracefully as possible, as it’s likely to be a no-win situation. Seek ways to steady yourself and even out your pace today.
ScorpioYou can be working very well on emotional energy and enthusiasm in spots today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon in your sign forming happy connections. Your outlook is positive and productive. You’re paying some special attention to your personal plans and emotional needs. Even so, there can be some tendency to question recent goals related to learning and connecting. Rethinking a project may be in order. Skipping over essential details can be a problem today. You can get quite pumped up about a project or idea, but in your enthusiasm, you might be tempted to push something forward or speak too soon. It may be best to aim for some moderation and a smoother pace since it’s all too easy to become distracted.
SagittariusThe Moon spends another day in your privacy sector, dear Sagittarius. It will head into your sign early tomorrow, awakening your interest in making connections to the outside world. Today, however, you’re still processing and decompressing. Tense transits can overstimulate on some levels, particularly mentally, however. Part of you wants to keep things simple and not overthink matters, while the rest of you is skeptical and favors digging more deeply. Defensiveness in others can throw off your conversations. It’s best not to make quick moves or speak too quickly on a matter. Impulsive spending and mixing love and money can also be problematic. Aim for moderation, but do consider that getting riled up about a matter might serve to motivate you to make an important change.
CapricornYou’d prefer not to think or plan too intensively today, dear Capricorn, and taking a break from demanding situations makes sense. Even so, you may not see eye to eye on a matter, which can cause tension until you decide to agree to disagree, or, better yet, learn from your differences. In all likelihood, the disagreement is a superficial one, and core values remain in harmony. This may also be a time when you’re in the position of go-between and may prefer to stay out of it. Disagreements occurring now might ultimately help you clarify what’s most important to you. You might get to a better position for separating the wheat from the chaff. In the meantime, it’s best to avoid being too brusque or hasty with others.
AquariusThe Moon spends another day at the top of your solar chart, dear Aquarius. You’re more invested than usual in your responsibilities or goals. It’s best to watch what you communicate and how you come across, as rushing can lead to mistakes. Trying to push an idea can certainly backfire with others more defensive than usual. It’s all too easy to push one another’s buttons today and this week, in general. Waiting for a better time to present your case makes sense, although it can be hard to do with the day’s impatient energy. While the inclination is to overthink in many areas of life today, you might resolve a work-related problem or practical matter with the opposite approach. Letting things fall into place and avoiding stressing over the details can be more successful today.
PiscesThe Moon spends another day in your spirit sector, dear Pisces, and you might focus on an interesting topic or activity and run with it. If you can manage it today, movement and fresh air can be most desirable and helpful at this time in the lunar month. You’re seeking some inspiration, and your vision is broad. Mental tension and disagreement can nevertheless figure strongly with tense Mercury and Mars aspects with Pallas. It may be best to avoid pushing matters that you can’t change, but do let these tense transits help you tap into the courage to get something out of your system if you can do so mindfully. Taking care of a problem can be satisfying, but hasty moves and words can be hard to take back later.
