Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aries, and you want things to be comfortable and straightforward at this time of the lunar month. Later today, worries that you’ve been keeping at bay about your long-term plans, life path, career, responsibilities, or reputation are the possible root of negative thinking or tension. Focusing on solvable problems, starting small, may be your best bet. Ideally, tensions point you toward making necessary changes but don’t put all the pressure on yourself to get everything handled now. While concerns can be active on your mind, you have a lot to enjoy as well.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Taurus, and aligns with Uranus. The search for experiences beyond the ordinary can be a big focus. Later today, there’s some tendency to worry or dwell on problem areas. Of course, being aware of this propensity can help you take steps to avoid going overboard with it. Tensions can have their root in frustrations over differences in core values and beliefs. On the plus side, you can take a few notes if you find yourself tense out of the blue — those things you’ve buried haven’t gone away, and this is a sign that you should probably deal with them! Some super transits can help pull you out of negative thinking. It can be a good time to tap into creative thinking and put your unique perspective and viewpoint to good use.
GeminiYou can be a little withdrawn or inclined to keep some things to yourself today, dear Gemini, as the Moon spends the day in your privacy sector. It’s an excellent time, in fact, for taking a break or getting extra time for rest. Later today, you could see things through a suspicious lens, as much as you’d prefer to live your life more freely and spontaneously. Fears, competitiveness, or worries can play with your head, and subtle tensions revolving around resentments can emerge. Take this opportunity to explore what may be at the root of rising frustrations since you might get closer to understanding your deepest darkest fears. Today and tomorrow hold some nice opportunities, and it makes sense to focus on them. You could have good luck thinking outside the box about financial matters. Analyzing patterns can help you make better decisions.
CancerYour social life can be especially interesting today, dear Cancer, and also rather distracting, as you’re putting more energy or investing yourself more in it. You’re seeking inspiration. Still, a lot is going on within you, and some vague worrying and fretting can make it a little challenging to heal and rest later today. Being aware of the problem can help. Try to connect with the root of your tensions if they arise, as these can be persistent issues that subtly undermine your progress, and it may be about fears of changes in a relationship. There can be a feeling that you have to go around an issue instead of coming right out with it, but don’t be afraid to explore your feelings before presenting them. You are going against the grain in some ways today and tomorrow, and there can be quite a bit of excitement about a longer-term plan, project, or group endeavor.
LeoThe Moon is highlighting your career and reputation sector, dear Leo, and you’re more invested in your practical affairs or performance. You’re feeling competent and ready to take on a challenge. It can be a strong day for sorting out problems, although as the day advances, there is some tendency to choose indirect ways to get what you want. If you take a disagreement very personally now, it’s a good idea to examine why. Fears or worries hang heavily in the air and are most likely to relate to your work or health. You might develop a plan for tackling problems one step at a time and aim to enjoy your day. It can be challenging to resolve an issue if you’re too close to it. Fortunately, you might also feel a sense of creative renewal or liberation. You could be tempted to make a change or s surprise yourself by divulging information you didn’t think you’d reveal. Perhaps there is a mischievous part of you that wants to put something from the past behind you.
VirgoYou can be restless to learn something new or do something different, dear Virgo. It’s a potentially good day to identify problems in your life and visualize life as it would be after putting these things behind you. In this way, you can get closer to solutions and resolutions. However, as the day advances, watch for feeling pressured or twisted up with worry, as there may be a concern about a relationship, creative, professional, performance, or reputation matter that leaves you feeling tense. If you find yourself dwelling on issues that you can’t fix or that require more time to resolve, aim to pull yourself out of this mental trap. Still, it’s not a good idea to avoid problem areas altogether. Efforts put into managing insecurities may seem to be a distraction, but they can put you on the right track. You tend to hold on to your ideas and go your own way with them today and tomorrow, expecting others to accept you for who you are. While you may not always agree with others right now, you’re likely to learn a lot from your interactions.
LibraYou’re inclined to go inward today, dear Libra, with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, and you readily make this an illuminating, positive experience. As the day advances, with a Mercury-Pluto aspect coming into play, problems weigh more heavily on your mind, mainly related to your past, childhood, family, and home life. Changes or a sense that you can’t control things can leave you somewhat insecure. You might crave doing something new, healing, and spirit-lifting but end up sticking with what’s familiar because you fear missing something important. You’ll benefit from a bit of perspective if you’re feeling overwhelmed. You’re likely too close to a situation. Opportunities tend to come to you when your mind is free.
ScorpioWith the Moon’s all-day transit of your partnership sector, dear Scorpio, the desire for another perspective on a situation is strong. At the same time, you’re not always thrilled with others’ input, and there can be push-pull energy as a result. Later today, you could be very absorbed in your thoughts, and it may feel a little rocky as you may be slightly off your game and not feeling very understood with Mercury and Pluto at odds. This is a minor aspect and is not likely to dominate your day, but it can find you more reflective than usual. Concerns related to communications, learning, daily affairs, and keeping abreast of your studies or personal interests can be stronger today. An open mind wins more rewards than suspicion and criticism with upcoming transits. In fact, an idea can inspire you and lead you down a new path, or it might set off interesting tangents of thought.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, dear Sagittarius, making it a good time to attend to various chores and practical tasks. Later today, a Mercury-Pluto aspect can weigh you down a tad. Watch for spiraling thinking, as the tendency is to dwell on matters that don’t have immediate resolution. You might feel pressured to deal with a long-standing problem, but rushing to resolve it may work against you. Focus on those things you can control and work on issues one step at a time instead.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, encouraging you to make time for more humor, play, and fun in your life, dear Capricorn. Later today, you can experience some difficulty keeping your good mood in spots. The trick is to aim to enjoy mental tasks and exercises rather than entertain emotional perspectives. Uncluttering your mind and conscience requires you to focus on your priorities and free your mind from the vague worries, guilt, and concerns that seem to interfere with productivity now. If you invest too much time and energy into matters that get blown out of proportion today, it can feel like a big waste. Aim to pick yourself up and learn from the experience if it does happen, and you might take notes for future run-ins with these recurring issues. Once beyond hesitation or stalling, you’re likely to find quite a bit of enjoyment in pursuing your goals.
AquariusWith the Moon in your home and family sector all day, dear Aquarius, everyday and comfortable activities can be most appealing–and healing. However, as the day advances, small complications can have a way of taking over your mind as Mercury and Pluto head into a minor challenging aspect. Awareness of this tendency can help you overcome it since brooding or dwelling on unresolved matters from your past can interfere with your enjoyment of the present. It may be better to steer your thinking towards creative pursuits, but this is not about ignoring problems–the goal is to avoid dwelling on them in favor of considering them and aiming to resolve them as you advance. Fortunately, you’re primed to catch on to exciting brainwaves.
PiscesWith the Moon in your solar third house all day, dear Pisces, it’s a good time to honor your need for more variety and stimulation. While it may not be the best day for concentration, it’s a fine time to pick up interesting and perhaps helpful information. With a Mercury-Pluto influencing later today, there is some tendency to dwell on troublesome areas of your life, mainly regarding friendships or family matters. Stress or fear of missing out in your social life can keep you feeling wired or on edge. You don’t have to solve all your problems and those of others all at once, so do your best to take the pressure off. Fortunately, you’re in good shape for creative ideas and expression. Seeing past patterns can help bring perspective to new projects and endeavors.
