Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon moves into your adventure sector today, dear Aries, and you crave increased space and light on an emotional level. Expanding your mind or your personal experiences can be in focus. This is a good time for finding inspiration through something you read or experience outside the bounds of your usual routine. With many options in front of you today, it may be best to sort out priorities. If you’re waiting on something to happen, it’s likely to be a tense day. However, if you have a goal in mind, you can manage this energy and be productive. A boss, person in authority, or family may not be seeing things the same way, or professional goals might collide with personal ones as Mercury approaches an opposition to Jupiter. Enjoy new ideas that keep you feeling enthusiastic, but consider that details will need more attention later. Tensions lie in overblown expectations.
TaurusYour inclination to listen, observe, and learn today is a breath of fresh air, dear Taurus. A Mercury-Jupiter transit can mean many are too busy expressing themselves to hear others. You might want to put in the extra effort to further study a matter, do some strategic thinking, and spend quality time. You’re in the background, but there’s quite a bit of power in this position. It’s easier than usual to make a real connection with someone or a project. Even so, people tend to go overboard or to expect too much. You can be excited and optimistic about your plans and projects, and it’s best to remember to keep things moderate and avoid going overboard. Aiming for quality over quantity makes sense.
GeminiCommunications are pleasant and uplifting today, dear Gemini. With the Moon’s move into your partnership sector for a couple of days, you tend to prefer sharing your ideas or activities with someone rather than going it alone for now. Relationships frequently help us see ourselves a little more clearly, and today can be one of those times. Still, with Mercury about to oppose Jupiter, there can be push-pull energy happening before you arrive at a better understanding. The tendency to think in big terms and fantasize about ideal scenarios is strong, particularly as it relates to money and relationships. You may need to cut things back and pay more attention to practical matters, as difficult as it may be. Do your research before investing time and energy into something, but allow yourself to think in bigger terms than usual. Keep in mind that important details may be missing now and needy of attention later.
CancerThe Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, dear Cancer, and you’re in great shape for handling details and problems. As the Moon harmonizes with the Sun in your resources sector, you may thoroughly benefit from and enjoy getting organized. You might gain more confidence in your resources, health, wellness, work, or routines. A focus on daily routines can be comforting. Still, Mercury is heading toward an opposition aspect to Jupiter, and disagreements can figure strongly again today. Watch that you don’t talk ahead of yourself, leading to regret at a later date for what you say or commit to now. You might want to aim to be discriminating when it comes to self-expression with this aspect in play. Others might oppose your plans or compete to communicate when sharing ideas rather than listening to one another. Enthusiasm runs high, but it’s not a fabulous day for genuinely being heard and understood.
LeoThere can be some mental agitation again today, dear Leo, but today’s energies also serve up some good feelings. The Sun in your sign harmonizes with the Moon in your sector of joy, setting up good opportunities to express yourself. It can be satisfying to release tensions through creative and entertaining activities. Pulling yourself away from problems or a tendency to overthink can give you a better perspective today. Enthusiasm is a good thing, but sometimes it can lead us to take on more than we can reasonably manage. An opposition between Mercury and Jupiter building today can illustrate this point. Enjoy the optimism and allow and open your mind to possibilities. Try to tackle things one at a time rather than wear yourself out.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo, favoring close relationships and domestic activities. It’s a good day for getting over a hump on an emotional level with the Moon’s harmony with the Sun in your hidden sector. You’re likely to feel stronger and more positive, and you can find yourself in excellent touch with your feelings and emotional needs. You might take heart in the idea that your goals will become more evident as you go along. For now, enjoy some quiet. Sometimes a good mood can lead to some overestimation or taking on too much, and a Mercury-Jupiter opposition on the horizon makes it more possible today, so you may need to watch for exaggeration. Areas of excess may need a closer look, but allow yourself to think in bigger terms than usual if only to stretch your mind and entertain a broader range of possibilities. There can be some drama in your social circle, and perhaps someone wants your attention. While you don’t want to encourage others to resort to over the top behavior to turn your head, you may wish to examine whether you should look for warning signs before it gets to that point.
LibraThe Moon moves into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Libra, and you’re in a more social, connected frame of mind. It’s a good time to get various things done and connect with people, dreams, or projects that inspire you. A cooperative feel lifts your spirits and also heightens your desire to socialize. You tend to feel out new projects and ideas, which is useful, but you’re not quite ready to commit to them. Conversations can be revealing, and you’re in a curious frame of mind. A Mercury-Jupiter opposition is coming into play, and it inclines to some excess. These days, you’re thinking quite a bit about performance, long-term goals and plans, and recognition, but these things can clash with your domestic goals. The tricky balance between your personal life and outside responsibilities can be in focus. You might feel the pinch if you’ve been overshooting or expecting results too soon.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your resources sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re in great shape for special attention to a pet project, business venture, or financial planning and thinking. Cooperation helps your overall mood and assists you with clarifying your goals. You may be able to tap into talents that have been buried or ignored. Still, if you’ve been overshooting with daily activities, learning, or travel matters, this is a time for seeing the excesses and making adjustments. While you should watch for holding on too closely to opinions, you’re generating new ideas and learning to put more faith in your long-term plans.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius. It harmonizes with the Sun today, and you can more readily gain the support and cooperation of most others. A significant someone or a partner may not be as agreeable, however. There’s a slapdash approach to thinking today that you should watch for, but entertaining both practical and emotional or spiritual perspectives works best. You may reach a far-out idea before discovering a truth today. This may have to do with a financial or intimate matter with Mercury and Jupiter moving into opposition across your resources and sharing sectors. Take your time before making big decisions, but enjoy a mental exercise now, as thinking in bigger terms than usual can serve you well. Consider that you might have something useful to learn from someone else’s perspective.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn. You’ll do best with activities that revolve around getting rest, time for reflection, research, and investigation. You stand to gain some insight into a love relationship or your deeper feelings. You might enjoy a sense of renewal regarding your feelings about a matter, admitting to feelings you’ve been avoiding, or understanding yourself a bit better. It’s an excellent time for regrouping and an inner tune-up, but not the best for getting noticed, and it’s best to plan accordingly. Today’s good for learning through your differences and finding new motivation to get past obstacles. A disagreement may prompt this perspective. Without a clear direction, you may end up feeling restless, and letting go of overthinking helps you see the bigger picture.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your social sector for a couple of days, dear Aquarius. It connects well with the Sun in your partnership sector today. Your need for non-competitive outlets for self-expression emerges. The less expected of you, the more naturally you contribute, share, and connect with others today, and there are rewards and good feelings for doing so. An impending Mercury-Jupiter opposition suggests some back and forth or vacillation. There can be a lot of focus on work, health, or routine matters, but decisions about these things don’t come particularly easily. You might find that letting go of the pressure to come to a conclusion or decision improves everything, even your practical affairs, which can benefit from added imagination and intuition. Details may not be clear or precise, but the bigger picture can inspire you. Do be sure to avoid jumping to conclusions.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your solar tenth house for a couple of days, dear Pisces, and you’re emotionally invested in your performance, ambitions, and goals. You can feel happily motivated to do your best today. Look for ways to improve your work, reputation, or projects. You’re arriving at interesting insights this week, but you may need to do some sorting between fact and fiction before you get there. Impulsiveness should be tamed today. You seem to need more mental space and freedom than usual, a change of scenery or routine can keep things fresh. It’s important to keep your perspective and healthy skepticism today, so do your best to avoid jumping to a quick conclusion about a friend or lover. Take care of small issues that assume bigger proportions in your mind simply because they have been put off for too long.
