Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re looking for diversions today, dear Aries, and you’re likely to enjoy some time out from the usual. The Moon continues its transit of your social sector and then moves into the final sector of your solar chart for a stay of a couple of days. This move signals a need for more time to yourself or space to process, digest, heal, and wind down. Pausing your busy schedule is most appropriate now if you can manage it. You can feel very much in need of calm as the day advances. While indulging in some alone time can be quite beneficial, others tend to support your ideas, and conversations with family can be especially helpful. You’re inclined to go low-profile for now, but problem-solving can be natural. There is nice energy with you for talking things through with loved ones.
TaurusWhile there can be impatience early today, dear Taurus, you find it natural to focus on long-range goals. As the day advances, you crave more recreation or a healthy diversion with the Moon’s move into your social sector. Friendly energy takes over, helping to ease some of the pressure you’ve been feeling. You’re likely to be more creative and at ease when it comes to expressing yourself, and you’re inclined to feel more comfortable if you remove yourself from the action. Still, it’s a fine time for some intellectual companionship or stimulation. Conversations that revolve around personal interests and causes can be in focus. While it can be a busy time, it may not be the most productive of days, and this works out just fine for the time being. You can be focused on your goals, dreams, and wishes, and decompressing comes naturally as you do so.
GeminiToday can begin with some scattered energy with Mercury square Mars, dear Gemini. As the day advances, you begin to crave more evenness, and the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart helps you tune into priorities. Still, you could feel some pressure, largely of the good kind, to take care of business or perform at your best. It can be satisfying to keep a goal in mind so that you can focus. There can be situations that encourage you to mature, grow, and improve. You tend to feel more at ease with meaningful tasks than you do with frivolous ones. Conversations are down-to-earth and useful, and giving a matter further thought may lead you to discover something that was previously lost.
CancerDespite a tendency to focus on frustrating elements early today, dear Cancer, you’re in a generally reflective state of mind in the first half of the day. The Moon later heads into your spirit sector, however, and the desire to pull yourself out of this mood tends to take over. Your broader goals become more appealing. You feel more confident and comfortable in your skin. You radiate good energy, and you tend to attract positive attention and feedback as a result. You seem to be at greater ease expressing both your ideas and feelings. The Moon’s transit of your sector of adventure and higher learning helps to lift your spirits as you rise above the regular stresses and problems of your daily life. You crave engaging experiences and a break from the routine or a change of scenery.
LeoThe Moon continues to spotlight your need for others in the first half of the day, dear Leo. When the Moon heads into Pisces later today, it moves into your solar eighth house, and your need to observe and reflect kicks in. You tend to process your feelings and recent experiences, but you’re also drawn to situations, people, and projects that engage your emotions and absorb you. You might see a new layer of a situation, perhaps even remembering a past matter differently, and it’s revealing as the Moon heads toward harmony with retrograde Mercury. You’re feeling more comfortable with your inner world. You might arrive at a wonderful place of understanding of your past or your deeper feelings.
VirgoThis morning’s energies can feel chaotic, dear Virgo, but you come into your own as the day progresses. The focus is on the details, your work, or your routine in the first half of the day. It’s a useful focus once you’ve moved past the tendency to fret or spin your wheels. It’s best to handle things one step at a time rather than do much multitasking right now. When the Moon enters Pisces later today, your focus becomes far more social. The urge to soak up ideas and inspiration from others is strong, and nice opportunities seem to emerge through networks, groups, and friends. There’s something beneficial or valuable related to your social life going on now. The fluidity between your feelings and mind helps you express yourself better, and it’s easier to iron out differences with others.
LibraThe Moon continues its transit of your creative sector in the first half of the day, dear Libra, but then moves into your work and health sector. There is some tendency for small problems to crop up early in the day with a Mercury-Mars square, after which it’s easier to enjoy yourself. Later today, taking care of details and attention to practical priorities or your health seems to satisfy you most. You find it hard to ignore taking care of business. Organizing your life in small but essential ways is a strong draw now. Accomplishing something is rewarding. You might talk comfortably and naturally about matters that previously were hidden or too private to discuss. Or, you’re giving special thought to issues that you avoided in the past.
ScorpioWhile the Moon’s transit continues to encourage you to settle in, dear Scorpio, early day transits can have you feeling on edge. Ideally, they pull up problem areas that need your attention. As the day advances, you find it far easier to slip into a steady mood. The Moon later heads into your sector of joy and creativity, and it’s a time of the lunar month for enjoying and appreciating your leisure time. You’re emotionally and mentally invested in your heartfelt pursuits today. Your ideas and sense of fun are big. It’s best to explore your thoughts and desires without pressure now for best results. Giving certain opinions more thought can be particularly useful now as you view a matter differently during this retrograde Mercury cycle.
SagittariusYou’re inclined to multitask in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius. Despite a tendency for small problems to get in the way early on, this approach works for you as the day advances. The second half of the day finds you in need of more comfort, familiarity, and quiet with the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house. Take this time to tone things down and enjoy yourself. Domestic and personal matters take center stage. Resolving differences comes especially naturally through conversation or further thought. This is a time to process newer feelings or recent events in your love life and make changes that benefit you going forward. A slower pace works out well for you tonight, as it helps you center yourself. Memories or dreams can be motivating and can give you new insight on a situation.
CapricornA Mercury-Mars square early today can find you feeling a bit wired, dear Capricorn, as it can alert you to a resurfacing loose end that needs your attention. A practical, uncomplicated mood becomes you as the day moves forward, but later today, your curiosity draws you to new experiences. The Moon heads into your communications sector. Fortunately, you seem to adapt beautifully to this new energy. You might take an active interest in learning new things and connecting with others. You might benefit from others’ input and help. You might do better with projects that are already in progress rather than pressuring yourself to take on more. A change of pace can be refreshing on an emotional level today.
AquariusThe Moon continues to transit your sign for part of the day, dear Aquarius, and you’re comfortable in your skin, which endears you to others. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to want to make or build something than to pioneer with the Moon’s move into Pisces and your solar second house. Your emotions steady, and you focus more on your physical and comfort needs. You’re not inclined to complicate things unnecessarily with this transit. You’re in good shape for talking readily about health, work, and other practical matters. Giving these matters special thought can be in focus. It’s a time for grounding yourself now that the Moon has left your sign and is visiting your resources sector for a couple of days. You’re likely to be more patient with this transit.
PiscesYour need for some downtime continues as the Moon moves through your privacy sector for part of the day, dear Pisces. However, once the Moon enters Pisces, you seek channels for expressing yourself. It’s a time for finding your joy. Today is strong for connecting with people or projects you love. Conversations are inspiring. You can feel a strong need for self-nurturing for a couple of days with this Moon transit, and it shouldn’t be dismissed. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time. You’re likely to feel connected and engaged or crave involvement. Your dreaming world is active, and your ideas are especially bright and creative.
