Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury is now in your home and family sector, dear Aries, and will influence things here until the 19th. In the coming two weeks, you’re likely to make more decisions about home and family, or your conversations and thoughts more frequently turn to personal and domestic matters. This transit opens up communications with–and about–family. There can be times during this cycle when you don’t feel well-understood, but it’s a good time for assessing prospects, drawing up plans for long-term security, and paying your personal life some due attention. While a restless influence is in force today, you’ll find it easy to bounce back or turn a situation around to your advantage. Fortunately, a Venus-Chiron transit helps open your heart and put fears behind you. People see and appreciate your unique qualities. Your communications shine as your words help heal and replenish. There is an appealing openness to your self-expression, and your powers of attraction subtly lift. Willingness to listen is part of this.
TaurusUntil the 19th, Mercury influences your solar third house, dear Taurus. Learning, short trips, communication, or making connections appeal strongly. This transit sparks your curiosity and motivates you to reach out. It can be a time of more than the usual reading, writing, or studying. There can also be a lot of activity and many distractions at this time. However, it can be a good time to diversify your interests. Your social life can improve, and keeping/getting in touch with others can lead to valuable opportunities. You may not have enough time (or possibly interest) for in-depth study or focus during this cycle. This trend is better for connecting you with new information, ideas, and interests. Today, identifying and sharing insecurities can lead to greater bonding as Venus and Chiron harmonize. There can be good negotiating and partnering experiences now. Your powers of attraction run high, and comforting activities help you heal. It’s a good time to uncover hidden gems or untapped resources. You can have unique insights with money, personal possessions, and business.
GeminiMercury is now out of your sign and transiting your resources sector until the 19th, dear Gemini. Now that it’s moved on, you’re less focused on your independence and more concerned with building the structures in your life. It’s certainly a good time for bringing new ideas, organization, and objectivity to your practical affairs, including your finances. It’s also a strong period for developing your skills and talents, taking special care of your valuables, and acquiring new things that make your life a little easier or more comfortable. There can be times when you fret over your resources, but overall, this is a good time for seeing what you need and want more clearly. Today, a Venus-Chiron aspect puts you in good form for inspiring confidence. This transit boosts your appeal and magnetism and helps you break through problems or put issues to rest. Friends can be helpful and reassuring, or your social life/network seems more supportive. You may get the chance to express yourself in ways that make you feel good, and your communications can be healing. Others might trust you more than usual.
CancerWhile Mercury was in your privacy sector recently, you may have had less opportunity or desire to speak about yourself or your plans, dear Cancer. Yesterday, Mercury entered your sign, and you are now fully ready to make decisions and discuss your plans. This cycle that lasts until the 19th is good for sharper decision-making and more objectivity. You more naturally use the power of words to attract what you want. You’re ready to put the past behind you, and you’re likely to have plenty of fresh ideas for the future. You also have a stronger impact than usual when you communicate. There can be some tension or restlessness to manage today. However, a Venus-Chiron aspect can help you see that camaraderie is more important to you than being right, and there can be healing powers to your words. There can be a secret attraction or a stroke of good luck from behind the scenes. Special moments taken for yourself can be most satisfying and perhaps healing.
LeoMercury is now moving through your privacy sector and will do so until the 19th, dear Leo. You pay more attention to the past, private matters, and hidden elements of your life during this cycle. It’s a good time for quiet contemplation and meditation. However, it’s best not to put too much weight on issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. With the Sun also in this area of your chart, there’s even more focus on rejuvenation, past matters, and healing. You could be seeking more sense and reason to recent experiences or looking for meaning in hidden places. It’s a good cycle in which to do research or groundwork for future projects and take a break from the usual mental routine. There can be some inner restlessness today, but a Venus-Chiron influence helps you enjoy yourself and make yourself useful at the same time. You’re in good shape for personal appeal, fun projects, and a sense of camaraderie. Feeling more comfortable and relaxed while expressing yourself can figure strongly. Someone’s understanding or reinforcement of your beliefs and ideas can feel particularly pleasant.
VirgoYour planetary ruler, Mercury, has just begun its transit of your sector of dreams, wishes, and connections, dear Virgo.

You’re giving more thought to personal happiness, friends, or groups. It’s a great time to develop innovative ideas for future projects, and you can be quite technical and progressive. You seek or attract people who stimulate your mind, and people tend to gravitate to you for the same reasons. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle. While today can be restless in spots, and it’s wise not to jump to conclusions, a Venus-Chiron aspect can boost communications, helping you prioritize life’s healing and compassionate side. There can be positive reviews and possibly recognition for your ideas and advice. You might more deeply enjoy your work or absorbing activities, or you could draw in support or backing. You might enjoy developing strategies to reach your goals.

It’s a good time for seeking out or coming across information and knowledge that benefits or enhances your goals and prospects. You’re thinking about long-range goals. You may be more accountable for what you say and do now than at other points in the year. Fortunately, your planetary ruler, Venus, is in harmony with Chiron today, and you may attract warmth or encouragement.

ScorpioMercury is now transiting your solar ninth house, dear Scorpio, and will stay in the sign until the 19th. Transits stir a desire to reach beyond your usual boundaries and ignite a sort of wanderlust that can be physical or mental. With Mercury here now, you’re looking to expand your knowledge and mental experience.

Discussions can intensify quickly, but you are detached enough to keep things fair and rational. It’s a time for gathering all sorts of information and cues, and financial strategy and planning can be especially successful now. Research, analysis, and investigation are also favored during this cycle. Today, watch for too-quick decisions.

It’s a good time to tackle issues that can use a subtle boost of honesty, compassion, and openness.
AquariusMercury is in your work and health sector until the 19th, dear Aquarius. In the weeks ahead, you’re in perfect shape for attention to detail and anything that helps you get your life (or mind) more organized. Much effort and thought go into getting things in order, or your work can involve more communication. Watch for a tendency to fret, worry, and over-think so you can take advantage of this productive period. This transit brings analytical energy to your work, health, and daily regime. It’s a fabulous time to read, write, and discuss these matters, and also to work on developing your skills. There can be some tension and restlessness to manage today.
