Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is another day to avoid pushing matters, dear Aries, as there is likely resistance. It’s all too easy to be put off by communications, which can be curt or appear insensitive without the human connection in place. Try not to divide your attention or attempt to take on too many different topics and interests, as it can quickly lead to stress and tension with a Mercury-Mars minor challenging aspect active now. The Moon spends most of the day in your sector of joy and creativity, however, and anything that boosts your sense that you’re allowed time to play, create, or enjoy yourself can be helpful. Consider that nervous energy can interfere with your perceptions, and aim to take it easy instead of drawing quick conclusions.
TaurusDisagreements over fundamental values, and possibly how you handle money, can arise today, dear Taurus. Consider whether there is more to the problem than what meets the eyes since we sometimes harp on things that disguise a deeper issue. Your path now is to look at money matters in new ways. As you reduce expenses, you reduce strain on your brain. If a money or business matter is facing delays, it’s time to find new approaches.

GeminiWith Mercury currently transiting your sign, retrograde, and connecting with Mars today, dear Gemini, it can be all too easy to feel tense or impatient.

However, your curiosity ignites, and you’re standing out for your intelligence. It’s a good time to discover an interest.
CancerCrossed wires can occur relatively easily today, dear Cancer, as retrograde Mercury clashes with Mars. Try not to take it to heart if someone says something that seems a little off. It can be a time of people “not meaning what they say, or saying what they mean.” Aim to keep things simple rather than take on more than you can comfortably handle for best results today.

You could be juggling too many personal interests or needs and demands of friends, and it can be challenging to focus on one or the other.

Much later today, the Moon heads into your sign, and for over two days, you’re ready to start fresh emotionally.
LibraIt’s best to allow for the possibility that communications might go awry or that transportation may not be as straightforward today, dear Libra.

Breaking free of outdated or automatic relating patterns helps you try something new, and relationships can use some refreshment.
ScorpioWith today’s transits, it may be best to watch what you say, or more likely, how quickly you make an observation or offer criticism, dear Scorpio.

SagittariusDelays that force you to do things a little differently can figure strongly today, dear Sagittarius. It may be best to try to avoid off the cuff remarks right now. There is a real tendency to attract people who are grumpy, tense, or otherwise stressed out.

The sooner you tune out the nonessential and accept that you may need to wait a bit longer for things to get back on track, the better you make use of the day’s supportive energies. Ideas can be golden–they just need to develop slowly.

Retrograde Mercury clashes with impatient Mars, and impatience can distract you. However, if you center yourself, you can tune into opportunities to connect with a person or passion project. The day’s transits support investigations, research, and deeper subjects, projects, and relationships.
AquariusIt’s probably best to be more mindful when expressing yourself today, dear Aquarius, with retrograde Mercury in a minor but challenging aspect to Mars. This transit generates impatient energy, but it’s better to take your time coming to conclusions. People can be curt or snappy. The desire for out of the ordinary experiences and connections is strong, but restlessness or impatience can ruin a perfectly good thing. Try not to confuse drama or excitement with love today. Ideally, it’s a time to see your life through others’ eyes in important ways.
PiscesThe Moon spends most of the day in your work and health sector, dear Pisces, and you prefer to be productive. However, you don’t have all the information you need, or you’re waiting for something that never seems to come, and it’s best to exercise some patience. Communications you usually take for granted can seem to malfunction in minor, but nevertheless irritating, ways. You may be unwittingly letting stress into your life if you attempt to do two things at once. Try not to mix and match, as you will spread yourself out too thin. Compartmentalize for better results today. You may need to make changes with how you manage the everyday details of your life, and the focus should be on eliminating distracting activities that undermine your concentration.
