Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesAlthough you could experience delays or changes of plans today, your good mood lifts you above fretting over these things much of the day, dear Aries. Later today, however, if you don’t find a productive channel for your excess energy, you might be snappy or irritable. You could feel like the ball is not in your court now. It is sometimes more important to be respected than to be liked, and this can be one of those times. It’s best to view social blunders as mistakes rather than read too much into them. Second-guessing your decisions or worrying too much about your performance can be annoying if taken too far, but healthy in small doses. Fortunately, the Moon’s move into your sign is good for focusing on personal plans and starting fresh.
TaurusYou want to connect harmoniously with a friend today, dear Taurus, but there can be some misunderstandings, particularly with a family member. Avoid anything that promises a power or control game later today when tensions are present, but their precise source is hard to pinpoint. There is no winning right now! Something such as a gut feeling or a fear may be holding you back. You can also feel divided between wanting to do something new and different and preferring to stick with the tried and true. It’s important to listen to what your intuition is telling you. However, a distinction should be made between fear and instinct, and interference and distraction can make it challenging to do so.
GeminiYou can be thinking far ahead today, dear Gemini, and it benefits you to consider your longer-term goals. You can learn a lot from your gut feelings and reactions, but be aware that transits influencing later today can skew your perceptions a little. You may not know your next step and stumble with a decision. Whether to take action or wait things out can be the question. Dealing with others who are unsure of themselves can be frustrating, but it’s best to avoid pushing for an answer or a decision, as it can be difficult to come by right now. As well, try not to take what appears to be criticism to heart. Consider that insecurities may prompt you to read what’s said negatively. Mental laziness is likely right now, so do what you can to treat yourself to downtime or frivolous, mind-clearing activities.
CancerPractical solutions are creative, and friendly gestures can be refreshing today, dear Cancer. While it’s easy to see where everyone is coming from, later today, you are in no mood to be pressured or pushed. It can be tempting to walk away from a problem or disappear temporarily until the vibes are more relaxed. Watch for a mind that is working overtime, which can lead to a misunderstanding. Even offhand remarks can do some damage, and nervous tension can help you do something fast, but you’re inclined to burn out on it more quickly. Differences of opinion likely boil down to whether or not you respect one another–showing mutual respect may very well resolve issues.
LeoYou’re feeling more comfortable with your inner world today, dear Leo. You might arrive at a beautiful place of understanding of your deeper feelings. Later today and into tomorrow, underlying tensions can get in the way of asserting yourself, or they distract you from your goals. You are not in the mood for playing up to others, and it may be better to avoid conflicts altogether for the time being. Power games will lead nowhere right now, but a serious conversation makes sense if the problems persist later. This is not the most decisive day for you, nor is it one for truly pushing your plans ahead. Ideally, this tension pushes you in a promising direction you may not have considered otherwise. There can be a critical tone to conversations that may seem offensive but is unlikely to be intentional. Rise above it as much as possible.
VirgoYou’re positioned well to learn a few things through your interactions early today, dear Virgo, whether this is direct or not. You seem to respond to others better on a mental level than an emotional one with the energies of the day. However, your interactions can take on some intensity that seems unexpected or even unwarranted later today. Information that is typically tucked away might emerge–you or another person may reveal something very personal and private or bring up deep topics. Be careful, though, about stirring up controversy. Watch for a tendency to take things too personally, and also watch that your own words don’t come off as criticisms. People are touchier than they appear later today and into tomorrow.
LibraIt continues to be quite natural to dream up ideas or methods that help you in your everyday life, dear Libra. Feeling on top of the little things can do much for your state of mind. Still, vague concerns and worries, even if you try to bury them, have a way of hanging in your aura later today when a Mars-Pluto transit comes into play. You and others are sensitive, ready to pull away or resist if cornered in any way. You may be “on the fence,” with doubts interfering with your ability to make a solid decision. Conversations and interactions can be slightly tricky but manageable overall. Try to shake it off and unwind as much as possible, as you can too easily feel stressed. It may be better to let something go and let things be.
ScorpioEarly today is good for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time, creative spark, or loving feelings, dear Scorpio. Your magnetism is healthy, and a generous spirit is taking hold. However, tension builds as the day advances. On social and emotional levels, you could be struggling with indecision. A sense that others aren’t valuing you enough for your efforts can take hold. If it’s more about your sensitivity than reality, it’s still an issue to manage, but working this out can look different if others aren’t appreciating what you do. Compulsive thinking now can cause confusion and an overly serious frame of mind. Vague worries often stem from having too much on your plate. If so, aim to simplify so that you don’t feel overwhelmed.
SagittariusThe day doesn’t inspire a lot of energy or motivation to fulfill plans and finish projects, dear Sagittarius, but a slower pace may be most beneficial. Later today, it’s best to avoid extremes, but it’s also a good idea to acknowledge what you’re feeling. Avoid succumbing to pressure to express yourself if you don’t feel ready to do so. It’s definitely not the best time to divulge sensitive information. Watch yourself for negative thinking and/or the tendency for your conversations to skew toward complaints, criticism, and the like. Friendships may be strained right now, possibly because you are craving a deeper connection than you are letting on or even acknowledging. Ideally, changes in plans can lead to new approaches, which might ultimately move you in a promising direction.
CapricornThere can be something handy to learn through your communications or through information or news that comes in today, dear Capricorn. Traditional approaches to your work or projects are favored most now, but innovative thinking or updates to your methods are still very likely. Later today, it’s all too easy to make more of a matter than it deserves, perhaps to the point that you feel undue pressure to make a change. You could be feeling on edge, and you might be harboring some feelings of resentment as we approach a Mars-Pluto minor challenging aspect. Oversensitivity now can lead you astray, and it’s best to keep in mind that your perceptions of people and circumstances can be temporarily off. Swinging from feeling confident and second-guessing yourself or others can figure strongly. It may be better to diffuse a situation through kind gestures or willingness to let something go.
AquariusYou can find satisfaction in getting your practical affairs in order today, dear Aquarius, as it can make you feel very secure. Still, later today, interactions can be on the delicate side, so do your best to keep an objective yet sympathetic frame of mind. You may want to keep some of these to yourself, as there can be a tendency to take things the wrong way as we approach a Mars-Pluto minor challenging aspect. This transit suggests you or someone close to you may be making too much of a situation than it warrants. Decisions may be poor as a result, but it’s temporary. Try not to put too much weight into what others say in absolute terms, and try instead to assume that their intentions are good.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, you’re likely to feel connected and engaged or crave involvement, dear Pisces. However, you may not know how to direct your extra energy. Later today, some frustrations with someone may be difficult to understand, pinpoint, or resolve. You or someone close to you may be seesawing between asserting themselves and using more subtle methods to get what they want. This can be frustrating, but it can be refreshing to get a matter out into the open if you’re honest with yourself or with someone. However, you might also decide it’s better to wait things out or aim to do your part to avoid misunderstandings because it’s all you can do. Taming excessive impulses can be helpful. The Moon leaves your sign and enters your resources sector, putting more emphasis on money and comfort or security matters.
