Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour emotional focus is on performance or matters of responsibility and integrity today, dear Aries. Transits challenge you to get in touch with what you truly want and desire and with those things that might bring you the most joy. Your creative needs are stronger than usual, and friendly competition may be part of this as you want to do something special. You may not be able to move forward as quickly as you’d like, but if you do so step by step, you’re more likely to do it successfully. Look for more creative or fulfilling ways to do your work. Sometimes even small changes can lead to far improved motivation. Tame a desire to control things and avoid controversy for the best results today.
TaurusIt may be best to avoid repeating old patterns if you’re feeling restricted today, dear Taurus. As well, watch for a suspicious or possibly even controlling attitude in relationships, particularly with family. The Moon in your adventure sector can raise your spirits and keep you from worrying too much about the more minor problems in your life. While jealousies or resentments can operate close to the surface today, you can choose whether to accept and understand them or to let them control you. Memories and daydreams emerge that pull you into reminiscing about past events. Fortunately, you’re likely to arrive at exceptionally creative, dynamic ideas for handling your home or personal life. Others admire you for your dynamism and straightforward approach.
GeminiThere can be a lot on your mind today, dear Gemini, and it’s best to be a little more cautious about how you express yourself because, with today’s energies, there’s a tendency to make controversy out of minor misunderstandings. You’re better off outside this kind of drama. The Moon spends most of the day in your intimacy sector, making it a good time for processing and digesting recent events and observing rather than leaping ahead. However, there’s special charm in your presentation and personal magnetism as the day advances, and you’re taking the lead. There can be new interests or the reawakening of interests in focus now.
CancerWith the Moon transiting your partnership sector all day, dear Cancer, you can feel the need for company more than usual. Even so, you could feel a little possessive of people and things today if others seem to be moving into your territory or pushing your personal limits. Temporarily, you cannot see the direct route to satisfying your needs or asserting yourself. Challenges can come from the outside, but the response is what truly matters now. It may be better to keep some things to yourself for now but manage stress through constructive channels, which may be especially easy to find. There can be special interest in, and focus on, money, possessions, valuables, and comfort today.
LeoThe Moon spends most of the day in your work and health sector, dear Leo, positioning you well to find and see problem areas in your life. Fortunately, transits now supply you with the energy to fix them. Certainly, the will to get things done is strong, but it’s important not to get lost in unexpressed anger or resentment. Establishing your own pace and/or working independently might help, as you tend to be a little more particular about how you want to get things done. Try not to hold on to frustrations and resentments, but when expressing them, be careful to do so with care. Fortunately, good energy is with you for wrapping your mind around a complex problem and working on it until it’s solved. On another level, you are projecting both strength and warmth, and people are taking note!
VirgoEspecially creative energy is building, dear Virgo, and you may want to allow for some free time and space to benefit from it. There can be some tension today revolving around memories or reminders of a frustrating past matter, such as a relationship. However, this can prompt you to do something about it, motivating you to make changes that allow you to move forward freer and lighter. Make a point to get involved in activities that further your goals and ambitions. Work can be inspiring and fascinating now. Offer clear explanations of your motivations to the important people in your life if you are dedicating more of your energy to personal pursuits and goals, but allow yourself some extra privacy or the right to keep certain things to yourself.
LibraThe Moon spends most of the day in your home and family sector, dear Libra, presenting you with a good time to reconnect with yourself and your inner needs or explore your need for a feeling of belonging. It’s a good day for planning, strategizing, and examining built-up resentments you’ve accumulated if you’ve kept things to yourself. It can be relatively easy to trigger frustrations, but this also lets you see what needs purging. Getting things out into the open in your relationships may be difficult, but with some determination, you’ll be more able to see problem areas that require fixing. Conflicts with a friend likely have to do with over-identification with beliefs or systems of getting things done. You can be very relationship-focused, and others are paying you special attention.
ScorpioYou are especially noticed for your dynamism and strength today and tomorrow, dear Scorpio. You might want to do it your way now, particularly regarding work or duties, so it would be a good idea to work independently if you can do so now. Consider whether backing off and detaching yourself a little from a relationship or project can enhance it. A fresh attitude can make life easier. There is a slight tendency to stir up controversy today. Otherwise, you can feel incredibly motivated and determined to get things done. You’re in touch with your desire to excel, improve, and advance, but pacing yourself now can be the most successful approach.
SagittariusIt’s a little easier than usual to trigger defensiveness today and tomorrow, dear Sagittarius, but it’s also a rich time for new approaches and ideas. Observing before acting gives a better chance of seeing vulnerable areas and learning from them. In fact, this is a great time to find the motivation, possibly through frustration, to go after what you truly want and need! Avoid others’ head games if possible today. If you can avoid potentially tense interactions, you’ll find the energies of the day to be helpful for seeing what parts of your life can do with some improvement and upgrade. At the same time, the Moon’s stay in your solar second house most of the day turns your attention to building and developing. It can add more fuel to the desire to be productive.
CapricornYou can have a stronger desire to do things your way or to oversee a project rather than feel at others’ mercy today, dear Capricorn. Of course, this can light a fire under you to get things done, and frustrations may motivate you to go after what you want and need. The Moon spends most of the day in your sign, highlighting your emotions and stirring your need to feel connected and reinforced by the world around you. You’re more noticeable, and others tend to follow your lead. It’s not always straightforward to cooperate or get along with others seamlessly today, largely because you have your own mission for now, but personal appeal is strong. Given some space to do your thing, it can be a productive time.
AquariusWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house most of the day, dear Aquarius, you might crave some emotional space as you digest and process recent feelings and events. If you struggle with getting in touch with your intuition, removing yourself from ambitious, chaotic, or demanding atmospheres will do the trick. Transits are complicated, stirring up some tension, particularly in closest relationships or involving unresolved matters from the past. At the same time, you can find much motivation to improve things from the minor frustration involved. Ideally, you now get in better touch with your actual needs and desires, and minor resentments revealed now can be purged and processed. There can be especially lively interactions today and tomorrow. Once you find your passion, you’re raring to go.
PiscesYou could experience some frustrations with not feeling in control of your life in spots today, dear Pisces, which in turn can stir a strong desire to better your situation and seek a higher level of well-being. You are inclined to read between the lines and play detective today. Motivation to work harder or improve your health can be strong now. You could discover new ways to handle things and thrive on the level of health and wellness or in your work. Even so, you’re likely craving less pressure in your life, particularly socially, and with today’s Moon, you’re especially tuned in to the need for people to accept you for who you are. It can be a very creative and resourceful time when you make something special with what you have.
