Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can be feeling a bit more driven than you have been, dear Aries, with the Moon’s move into your career and reputation sector. Your need to perform or accomplish something important can peak tomorrow with the Lunar Eclipse in the same area of your solar chart. Today, aim to pace yourself and envision your life direction or career matters in a creative yet structured way. There might also be a great find or business opportunity now. You’re both practical and progressive now, and this combination serves you well. Early today, work or duty demands your attention, but you’re susceptible to distractions as you struggle with where to devote your energies. With Mars in your sign these days, you feel compelled to explore or assert your independence, and finding a balance makes the most sense. As the day moves forward, however, you’re more ambitious and focused.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your spirit sector, dear Taurus, stimulating your instincts to explore, discover, and question. Your more unique qualities stand out pleasantly, and you can be feeling rather inspired. Today and tomorrow are good for breaking free from a problem or situation that’s kept you feeling restricted. A Lunar Eclipse is about to occur in this same sector, and you can have important realizations now that set you on a new path. There can be some tension in the first half of the day as you wonder what lies ahead. There is also a tendency to be a little too quick on the trigger while communicating or too-quick reactions. Avoid juggling too much. Downtime is vital this month with Mars in your privacy sector, but you need a change of pace, too–something to engage your mind and refresh your spirit.
GeminiIt’s an important couple of days for self-discovery, dear Gemini, with the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector and a Lunar Eclipse occurring there tomorrow. You’re making valuable connections and getting to understand your desires and motivations more intimately. You might also bond closely with someone special or have some comfortable time spent with yourself. The focus seems to be on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world. You’re in a favorable position to synthesize recent experiences into something meaningful. Passions are rising with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow. Early today, there can be some tension if someone brings up an issue that leaves you feeling insecure or left to fill in the blanks. It’s fine to do some guarding of your feelings, but it’s best to avoid jumping to conclusions. It may be that you need to gather up your energy and think more carefully before going forward with important projects.
CancerThe Moon moves into your partnership sector, dear Cancer, and this transit can find you especially interested in finding a balance or keeping the peace. This morning, it can be quite challenging and even exhausting to reach a compromise. It may be best to change your focus. You might feel overwhelmed by career matters or responsibilities, but you also have a hard time pulling yourself away. However, as the day advances, there’s a good feeling of forward motion. There is a stronger focus on the balance between independence and togetherness with eclipses in your sign and opposing sign. You seem to want both, which is possible, but it can require some adjustments and creativity. Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse can get you in touch with your feelings about someone or a situation, which clears a path for decision-making. Your perspective stands out as unique, and it’s attracting others.
LeoThe focus these days is on finding a better balance between work and rest, dear Leo, and on this day before a Lunar Eclipse in your work and health sector, today is no exception. Problems seem to stick out more than usual. Early today, there can be a tendency to rush something or to succumb to pressures to get far too much done in a short period. It can be challenging to focus, and this comes down to feeling torn between the desire for more life experience and the need to straighten out details. It’s better to put some order in your daily affairs before moving your bigger plans ahead, and you’re ready to accept this as the day advances. You see new ways of doing things that make your daily affairs or duties a little more enjoyable. You’re building to important realizations about managing your life in a more fulfilling, balanced way.
VirgoYou put more than the usual effort into your creations today, dear Virgo, or expressing your beliefs and ideas with more faith and enthusiasm. The Moon heads into your romance and creativity sector today, and tomorrow, a Lunar Eclipse will occur in this same area of your solar chart. You might seek someone who understands your ideas, perspective, and beliefs. You can be feeling rejuvenated, even with this week’s tensions and concerns. Unrest in your social or romantic life can motivate you to come to solutions and resolutions in the coming weeks. This morning, a Moon-Mars square might leave you feeling a bit torn between applying yourself to a challenging project/problem and enjoying some free time. You might waver between trusting someone or something on the one hand and questioning motives on the other. As the day advances, your feelings become far clearer, directing you towards conclusions.
LibraThe Moon heads into your home and family sector today, dear Libra. With a Lunar Eclipse occurring in this same area of your chart early tomorrow, it’s time to pay particular attention to your needs for comfort and familiarity. You’re prioritizing emotional needs and replenishment. You can be exploring new feelings and ideas today, and domestic or internal improvements, changes, and renovations can be in focus. With your enthusiasm for emotional understanding, people around you may open up as well. Early today, however, the Moon forms a square to Mars, and frustrations can surface through your interactions with a partner or significant someone. If excess energy is used positively, feeling frustrated with your domestic situation or your emotional life can light a fire under you to get things sorted out. You’re on the right road as the day advances.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your communications sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re mentally busy, seeking some stimulation. Even with Mercury’s current retrograde, it’s a decent time for work on communications projects, learning, and studying. The Moon’s conflict with Mars this morning can point to an equal interest in personal pursuits and duties, but it’s important not to overdo. It can feel very chaotic in the first half of today if you’re overreaching. Instead, you might feel on edge with concerns about problem areas related to work/health issues, finding it hard to get much done with your attention so very divided. Try to tune out some of the extras for the best results. There can be some growing concerns about your duties with a Lunar Eclipse set to occur tomorrow. Pay special attention to self-care to bring your best to the opportunities opening up for you.
SagittariusThe Moon leaves your sign early today, which tends to settle your emotions, dear Sagittarius. Emotional needs feel less urgent, freeing you up to focus on other concerns. You’re especially innovative with money matters, work, and routines. There can be some tension building over a financial or ownership issue which can peak now with a Lunar Eclipse about to occur in your resources sector. For best results, avoid stressing yourself out. If you’re feeling competitive, use this energy to work for you. Look for opportunities that arise due to your confidence in your talents in the weeks ahead. As you help and share, you naturally draw resources your way. Early today, there can be some interference to navigate, whether it’s because a lot is going on around you or because you’re dealing with a fear of missing out. Watch for rushing or impatience to handle needs and desires. This can be a time for discovering alternate ways of making your life a little more comfortable and content, even if this means temporarily moving out of your comfort zone to secure something more long-term.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Capricorn. You have charm to spare today, but keep in mind that the Moon in your sign can pull up all sorts of feelings, and it may bring out some childishness. People who don’t know you well may be seeing your best, and those who do may be seeing your worst right now! While you can be gung-ho about your plans and seek out some much-needed “me” time, there can be a lot on your mind that makes this challenging, likely related to home and family. It makes sense to tune out distractions as much as possible so that you can focus on something important to you, but this will involve turning your mind to the “off” position, which can be hard to do at the moment. There’s a pleasant splash of creativity or originality in your approach to the world. Tomorrow’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your sign and is sure to pull up all sorts of feelings and possible tension. It’s a remarkable time for connecting with your feelings on an important matter, and it can be called an eyes-wide-open period for you. You’re likely to find plenty of opportunities to creatively combine responsibilities and personal expression.
AquariusMuch is going on under the surface of things these days, dear Aquarius. The Moon heads into your privacy sector, and you tend to retreat somewhat from the demands of daily life. You may be keeping parts of you to yourself, and you’re less accessible for the time being so that you can reorient yourself. With a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, important emotional discoveries are in the works. Your intuition is working powerfully now. Still, it can be tough to relax in the first half of today. It can be hard to turn your mind off enough to rest–perhaps your mind is in overdrive now–but it’s better for you if you do! The overthinking may well be a wild goose chase. Unwinding is a natural progression as the day advances. It’s best to put aside tension over personal viewpoints, paperwork, or errands. While your spirit for discovery is active, you may also need some time alone to sort out all of your feelings and experiences.
PiscesYou’re in fine shape for self-expression, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your friendship sector in harmony with Uranus in your communications house. Especially with a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, you might want to reach out to others in different or new ways. Today is good for popularity and support, and friends tend to bring good news or advice. There is a natural need to detach yourself temporarily from people and situations that have recently added stress or pressure to your life. Even with Mercury’s retrograde, there can be a nice flow or ease in your interactions. Even so, the Moon forms a square to Mars this morning, and you can feel blocked from pursuing some of your desires. The Moon here can stimulate a need to let go of pressures and unwind in good company, but a reminder of an expense, money concern, or a feeling of missing out could undermine this pursuit temporarily. Give thought to your finances and how you can make meaningful changes that free you from worry. You would do well to conserve energy until you have the confidence to go full speed ahead.
