Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a shake-up to your career or working life, dear Aries, and circumstances occurring now remind you that this is a time for restoring a balance between your personal and professional lives. You may come to a final decision about a move or a change of career goals/focus. Or, this is a time of recognition or decisions related to your work and life path. Events and circumstances occurring around now give you a push to handle professional matters, especially if you’ve been distracted or focused too heavily on personal affairs. You’re likely to gain some clarity concerning family or home-related matters and how they relate to your professional standing and responsibilities. A new direction or a recommitment to your goals can be in store now. This eclipse is part of a set that’s been in effect for two years. It’s the final push towards a better balance between your home and working life, professional and personal life, or attention to performance and attention to quiet.
TaurusToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a communication, learning, or transportation matter to a head, dear Taurus, or an important turning point. A course or educational path may take a new direction, or you could experience a strong desire to advance your education. Transportation or communication problems can be part of the picture for some of you, but these can lead to alternatives that end up serving you very well. The challenge now may be to confront some important, perhaps previously buried, issues in your life. This eclipse stirs the need for more distance from the mundane affairs of your life. It can bring to light a matter of spirit, adventure, or learning, and realizations can be significant. Announcements, awards, or completed projects can generate quite a bit of attention. The desire to experience and learn new things is powerful as your point of view or perspective has gone through some real changes as of late.
GeminiToday’s Lunar Eclipse can act as a cosmic push to make final changes related to improving your financial situation, dear Gemini, or a key relationship. Over the coming weeks, there may be some drama with money, support, dependency, or an intimate relationship. You may be seeing an issue surrounding values, respect, money, talents, or possessions more clearly once the power of your feelings normalizes. There can be a release or culmination of a matter along intimate, financial, or ownership lines that’s been in the pipeline for some time. It’s a fine time for releasing an obligation. This eclipse may ask you to take an emotional risk or move out of your comfort zone, and it can be a time for handling debts or matters of support. The desire to free yourself from restrictions or ties that have frustrated you can be strong, and it’s a powerful time for making an important lifestyle change.
CancerToday’s Lunar Eclipse is the final cosmic push to sort out close relationships and matters of independence/dependence, dear Cancer. The eclipse set that’s been very personal for you for the past two years comes to a resolution now. Recognition of relationship needs and feelings can happen in a rush. There can be powerful realizations, epiphanies, and clarifications occurring now. This eclipse can bring a close partnership or your relationship with others into focus, after a couple of weeks of quite a bit of attention to your own needs and personal plans. You might decide to make a change in a relationship or arrive at a final decision about a matter. Even so, it’s best to take some time with this since Mercury remains retrograde in your sign for another week. You can find yourself quite absorbed in small jobs and problem-solving as the day advances. There can be some restlessness if you can’t seem to put your ideas into motion, however.
LeoToday’s Lunar Eclipse may point to a turning point for health or work matters, dear Leo. Realizations happening now can empower you or point you in a new direction. This eclipse can be the final cosmic push to sort out work/chores problems. If your work or daily regimens have become too monotonous and have taken a toll on your spirits, circumstances occurring now push you to make needed changes. Changes are necessary, and being flexible enough to allow them to happen will make transitions much more manageable. There can be a good feeling of purging or release involved with bringing something to light. There has been increased attention to your emotional world lately, and this eclipse encourages you to find just the right work-rest balance. The focus should be on both physical and mental health, and this becomes especially obvious if you’ve been prioritizing either one over the other.
VirgoToday’s Lunar Eclipse points to a culmination or fruition of a matter, dear Virgo, and can act as the final push towards sorting out your relationships with friends or lovers. These areas of life have been filled with changes or up-and-down feelings for many of you, and this eclipse tends to push a turning point. Or, this can be about your focus on doing things on your own versus enlisting the help of others. You’re arriving at a better balance, and it’s been in the works for a couple of years. There can be illumination that clears the path for more honesty and clarity in the future. Lunar Eclipses are about settling matters and seeking balance. Relationship issues or even feelings for someone that have been present but not acknowledged or dealt with are likely to surface. This can be an emotionally enlightening time as you acknowledge and embrace your true feelings on a matter. Issues about love, joy, a passion project, creative pursuit, or children can be at the forefront.
LibraA Lunar Eclipse occurring today can bring any problems brewing in your domestic or personal life to full bloom, dear Libra. It can be experienced as a cosmic push to make changes that bring your life back into balance, particularly if you’ve been putting too much of yourself into your work and responsibilities. Some of you could make a final decision about a move or career change. Domestic conditions illuminate. It’s an ideal time for recommitting to a family or home pursuit. There can be a nice release from an obligation or final word on a matter that helps clarify your next step. Circumstances may be such that you have more decision-making responsibility now. Your attention is divided as the day advances. Your thoughts take you all over the place, making it a little difficult to enjoy the present. It’s a good idea to give yourself some time with any new revelations or ideas you have now. Process and digest for best results.
ScorpioEarly today, a Lunar Eclipse can stir up a vital turning point related to communications, learning, and ideas, dear Scorpio. Your words are especially powerful now. In the weeks ahead, there can be a publication or site launch or announcement, a studying opportunity, or another turning point related to transportation or communication. This is the last of a series of eclipses falling along your communications axis for the last two years, and you are likely to want to bring a project to fruition or make a final decision. This eclipse might ask you to put something behind you, but it can also stimulate the chance for personal advancement, particularly related to your work, ideas, and studies. There can be a clearing of the air or a critical discovery or connection made now. Events or realizations occurring around now call your attention to personal interests or learning matters. It can be an especially busy time for you, and your ideas can receive special attention. You could be making big decisions about your projects or studies in the upcoming weeks.
SagittariusToday’s Lunar Eclipse can pull up strong emotions surrounding self-worth or money matters, dear Sagittarius. A financial issue that has been brewing for some time might reach full bloom or a turning point. You may be in the position to throw yourself into a purchase or embrace a new business idea in the weeks ahead. This eclipse can serve as the final nudge to take charge of your finances, as it’s the last in a set of eclipses that first stirred up this need two years ago. Epiphanies or events around now can prompt a change in your budget or spending habits, or it might even push forward a money-making initiative. You’re clearer about what you want and of your value. Finances can improve, and for some, a loan could come through, or you could receive a bonus. As the day advances, you can be quite focused on information gathering. It’s important to feel, observe, and wait at this time. Emotions and enthusiasm are strong, but delays are still likely.
CapricornToday’s Lunar Eclipse brings unacknowledged personal needs to the front burner, dear Capricorn. Occurring in your sign, this eclipse prompts a check-in with unfulfilled feelings and desires. You may be surprised by the force of your emotions, and important epiphanies can occur now. Listen to your feelings, but try to process them until you’ve sorted things out. This eclipse is the final one in a set that has been around for two years. It can be considered the final nudge towards asserting your independence, understanding your relationship needs, and finding yourself. The upcoming weeks are powerful for self-understanding and personal epiphanies. It’s a time for finding a balance between independence and togetherness. Your emotions are on your sleeve. This eclipse can help point you in the right direction toward correcting imbalances, particularly in the me-you department in relationships. If you’ve been defining yourself mainly through your relationships, now is the time to draw up your own terms. While emotions feel raw right now, important realizations can occur that serve as a push to make essential changes in your life. A missing puzzle piece of information may turn up, or an especially meaningful conversation or conclusion comes to pass. You have tremendous personal power now, and easily hold others’ attention.
AquariusMental and emotional health needs require your special attention now, dear Aquarius. Today’s Lunar Eclipse can serve as a wake-up call if you’ve neglected self-care or if you’ve been overextended. It’s a time for recognizing the need to pace yourself. You’re called to get to a better work-rest balance. You might also need to bring closure to an unresolved issue in your life. Private or previously hidden matters come to light, making it a good time to heal and deal with them. There can be an epiphany or realization related to work or health that opens up a new path for you. The weeks ahead are powerful for making significant lifestyle changes. This is the final eclipse in a set that has been encouraging you to achieve a good work-rest balance since 2018. While it’s important to focus on firming up your routines this month, today’s eclipse reminds you of the need to take necessary breaks. You need to feed your spirit and take care of needs that go beyond the physical and practical. Concentrate on healing and reflecting. This way, you can bring your renewed self back to your work and self-care programs and do your best.
PiscesToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a friendship issue to a turning (or boiling) point in the coming weeks, dear Pisces. It’s a time to explore and share ideas with people in your life. If a friendship or group affiliation changes or ends, you might find that another door opens rather quickly. The best way to harness this eclipse energy is to set solid goals for long-term happiness. There might be a romantic revelation, or a creative project comes to a head. Sometimes we need a little drama to motivate us to make changes and improvements to our lives, and a Lunar Eclipse generally shows us what we have been lacking. This lunation reminds you of the need for others, whether it’s about support or simply a feeling of belonging. Reaching out at this time can be therapeutic. Responsibilities to others become very clear, and they can feel like a burden at first, but fulfilling them will lead to a stronger sense of satisfaction. It’s the final eclipse in a set that started two years ago and is a final push towards a better balance between your personal life and social life, romance and friendship. There can be a release or culmination of a matter along these lines. A new approach to expressing yourself with friends and lovers can be in the works.
