Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aries, and settling down or settling in can be a goal. You may wrestle with insecurities or wonder whether to go your own way versus maintaining the status quo in the first half of the day. Try not to take on too many problems that are not your own if you find people around you are a little cranky. You’ll quickly recognize the need for a mission today, even if it’s a modest one. Breaking out into a new path of self-expression will come across as insincere or rebellious if you’re not entirely behind it. If you need more time to truly “own” it, then take that time. You might feel a little discouraged, not knowing where to begin, but as the day advances, things seem to fall into place. Later today and tomorrow, energies are favorable for studies, commuting, creative pursuits, romance, transit, and learning. Someone or new information can help direct you, spread word of mouth, or contribute to your projects or skills. You have love and hope in your heart, and your appeal runs high.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Taurus, reinforcing both your sensitivity and courage. You may be dealing with a bit of guilt about things you aren’t accomplishing. The Sun-Chiron square suggests you may feel overlooked or otherwise in the background. Insecurities can be a problem today, but learning from them is also very possible and wholly worthwhile. It doesn’t feel straightforward to make big decisions. It may be that someone needs to clear the air. As the day advances, you might find that focusing on your foundations gets you in a more secure place. The path to fulfillment seems to be taking care of the practical aspects and details of your life, and it can be rewarding to seek ways to simplify your life and narrow your focus. It’s easier than usual to identify practical priorities. Valuable connections may be made that help further financial, security, and domestic goals today and tomorrow.
GeminiThere can be some feeling of lack of loyalty and general distrust around you in the first half of the day, dear Gemini, making it a less than ideal day for pushing your agenda or for trying to repair relationships. Today’s Sun-Chiron square can stimulate insecurities related to a friend, group, or finances. Watch that you don’t go along with others’ plans just for the sake of keeping the peace, all the while ignoring your inner voice. Keep an open mind and aim to learn about yourself if something touches a nerve or if an emotional wound reopens. Later today and tomorrow are good for making valuable connections. Communications, particularly those that serve a distinct purpose, favorable reviews, or positive word of mouth might be in focus. You might also enjoy helping someone grow, improve, or expand their options. Don’t be afraid to express what you want and need, and embrace independence.
CancerIt may not be the best time for big decisions, dear Cancer, but you’re in good shape for making valuable connections and learning from vulnerability. The demands of career, family, parents, or other responsibilities have a way of making themselves known today. While you can be very sensitive to expectations and limitations, you may lack the confidence to do something about it just for now. You don’t have to toe the line completely, as that will lead to inner frustration, but you might decide to wait things out until you have a plan that you can truly call your own. If someone or something hits a nerve, then you know that a part of you feels that there’s room for improvement. However, instead of concentrating on what others think, consider ways to improve yourself for you, not for anyone else.
LeoThe Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Leo, suggesting that having a mission or goal, even if it’s a simple one, will boost your mood. However, a Sun-Chiron square influencing the first half of the day can point to minor disappointments or unresolved problems from the past emerging for your attention. You could be struggling with your faith in a belief, idea, direction, or relationship. Some analysis can be useful, but only to a certain extent, after which it’s overthinking. Try not to take others’ views too personally and resolve to learn from anything that seems to trigger feelings of vulnerability now–it can be highly instructional and rewarding. While this transit can turn your focus to disappointments, as the day advances, things even out. You can be collaborating on plans and projects with great success today and tomorrow. You might make valuable connections, or there can be a feeling of being lucky in love or friendship. Contributing your ideas and talents or working towards increased happiness and health are in strong focus. Welcoming new methods makes sense now.
VirgoIn the first part of the day, self-doubts might undermine your decisions and interactions, dear Virgo, particularly if you work on auto-pilot. Still, a temporary lack of confidence might help you out. For example, you might choose to use the time wisely to get in better touch with yourself and your needs. It’s possible you’re confused about feelings in a relationship or with support (financial or otherwise). Boundaries may be crossed, and it could be challenging to know how, when, and if to make them explicit. You might decide to hold off on making a bold move until you’re sure that your plan is something you can truly put your name on. The Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit, which can be uplifting. As the day advances, you might make helpful connections that encourage you to see your next step or direction.
LibraThe Moon moves spends the day in your intimacy sector, dear Libra, stirring up deeper feelings and a desire to learn more about your needs. In the first part of the day, you might deal with some insecurities related to your performance, meeting responsibilities, or close relationships due to a Sun-Chiron square. Avoid trying too hard to please people, and aim to serve yourself by meeting others halfway, as this protects you from building up resentment. It can be a fine time for identifying weaknesses or vulnerabilities that need attention. You might discover that you need to work on asserting yourself more effectively with a partner. Fortunately, later today and tomorrow, you can find yourself raring to go about increasing your knowledge or feeding your spirit. Pulling yourself out of everyday life’s duller details to work on freshening your mind can be most worthwhile now. You might enjoy enlightening and refreshing thoughts, studies, and activities, and there can be valuable connections with friends, associates, teachers, guides, or counselors.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Scorpio, stimulating a more vital awareness of your relationships and need for companionship. In the first part of the day, it may be all too easy for others to touch upon your sore spots, although the result may be that you take necessary actions to firm up a vulnerable area of your life. With a Sun-Chiron square, there is some tendency to please and appease people instead of standing up for ourselves today. Try not to go overboard with this, as you may not get the desired response. You might also feel a pinch on a financial level. Ideally, any of these things or your mood could push you out of complacency and into action. As the day advances and into tomorrow, you might enjoy a boost to your reputation or bond with someone who shares similar goals and visions. There is favorable energy for getting a sense of what you want to achieve in the larger scheme of things. There can be good connections made to help you gain support, financial or otherwise, or valuable psychological resources and strategies.
SagittariusSome minor discomfort may be necessary for you to get over a hump today, dear Sagittarius. The Sun in your intimacy sector clashes with Chiron, and the general temptation is to go along with whatever we feel makes others happy or appeases them, but this can only lead to problems down the road. Emotional attachments can be a little confusing temporarily. Insecurities can surface, but as the day moves forward and into tomorrow, it’s more natural to find ways to feel more empowered. Doubts might motivate you to take action, resolve problems, and get yourself out of a funk. Resolve to grow stronger by identifying dead-end roads in your life and being honest with yourself. Pulling some pressure or attention away from yourself can be very appropriate and favorable for you. Energies are good for making connections that can further personal growth or help you advance your studies and broaden your horizons. It’s an excellent time to focus on the needs of someone special to you. You might attract helpful people or information into your life.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your playful, expressive solar fifth house, dear Capricorn, making it a good time for creating and enjoying favorite pastimes. In the first half of the day, a Sun-Chiron square influences you, and problems in the home or with family are best sorted out openly and honestly. The temptation may be to use a band-aid approach, but it’s best to look a little deeper and work on the root of issues. A partner may seem to be pushing your buttons. Identify your limits concerning when you feel put upon so that you can put an end to it before they’re exceeded. Getting over a soft spot will help you appreciate the freeing energy of an upcoming Sun-Uranus harmonious aspect. Uncertainty about your feelings can make you a little vulnerable, and it’s best to resolve to make changes and grow with and through them. As the day advances, throwing yourself into a project or mystery to solve is especially appealing. You could be making connections that help you advance your work or health goals.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your family and home sector, dear Aquarius, stirring your needs for familiarity and comfort. With a Sun-Chiron square influencing the first half of the day, it’s best to watch for appeasing someone to keep the peace, as it can very well backfire on you. This transit can lead to hypersensitivity, and there may be some shoddy timing with conversations or scheduling matters. It’s probably better to be politely honest instead of taking the roundabout or avoidant route. However, if you can put off formal conversations, interviews, or presentations, it may be for the best. Insecurities tend to emerge in social situations. Ideally, you’ll find beauty in imperfections on a second look. As the day advances and tomorrow, good energy is with you to partner or reach a fair agreement or compromise. You might feel pleasantly connected to someone or comfortably focused on a relationship. Romantic and creative connections can contribute to your growth and sense of fulfillment. People help you, and you help them.
PiscesThe Sun forms a square to Chiron, pulling up insecurities and soft spots in the first part of the day, dear Pisces. Indeed, sensitivity now can interfere with healthy, growth-oriented interactions, but exploring why can be helpful. Mixed signals with friends and lovers are possible. You may be entertaining the idea of taking a risk, but part of you would rather not rock the boat. It may be that your inner voice is telling you that it’s not quite the right time to push forward. Take more time to consider details and only take the leap when true confidence returns. Aim to learn about vulnerable areas that seem to be easily triggered today. As the day advances and into tomorrow, you can find much to enjoy in work, service, and daily routines. Focusing on your foundations can be rewarding. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, stirring a desire to learn, connect, and mingle.
