Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury turns direct early today, dear Aries. While today can be a bit chaotic as we adjust to the change of direction and deal with various problems, Mercury’s direct turn means information is unclogging. You’ll soon see forward movement, particularly on money, transportation, and communication matters. Also today, with a Sun-Pluto minor challenging aspect, built-up resentments can emerge, and it’s a good idea to recognize this and resolve not to let them drive your behavior. You could lose a bit of confidence in your plans, or you may become frustrated with what you don’t know, feeling a little in the dark and wishing for clarity. Let time tell and do your best to avoid going to extremes.
TaurusMercury turns direct early today, dear Taurus. If you’ve been looking back, reviewing, and editing, you’ll begin to enjoy the rewards of these efforts in the days ahead. Gradually, you’ll make more informed choices as new information comes in. Be extra mindful of details and instructions today as the shift occurs, but financial and communication delays should lift as you go forward. Just as Mercury doesn’t immediately resume normal speed, you might try to follow a similar path: ease back into things for best results! With Pluto in a minor challenging aspect to the Sun today, fear or worry can lead to undue pressures, stress, and impulsivity. You could feel that others are holding something back from you, or you might be frustrated about being in the dark about a matter, but it’s a good idea to draw upon your patience and ride things out. You’ll learn more if you relax and observe rather than push, prod, and full-on investigate a matter.
GeminiMercury began its retrograde in your sign on May 10th, dear Gemini, and then retreated into the sign just behind yours. Today, Mercury turns direct, and you’ll see some recent problem areas untangle. Still, Mercury won’t return to your sign until the 13th, when even more clarity is likely to come. Aim to observe, wait, and see again today. Watch that you’re not your own worst enemy. With a Sun-Pluto transit, it’s best to identify if something triggers controlling or compulsive behavior so that you can work on eliminating the fears that drive this kind of behavior. Aim to be patient that things will unfold as they should.
CancerMercury turns direct early today after retrograde motion since May 10th, dear Cancer. Although problem areas won’t immediately disappear as Mercury turns direct, you’ll see some real progress as Mercury slowly gets back to its normal speed in the days ahead. Information may emerge that helps you make better decisions or choices. Delays lift in areas related to friendships, transportation, and communications. With a Sun-Pluto transit also in play, watch for compulsive behavior if stress is left unchecked. The tendency can be to make life more complicated than it needs to be when a more straightforward, easier path is available.
LeoEarly today, Mercury ends its retrograde cycle, dear Leo, and information begins to unclog. Today’s energies are transitional, and you’ll be best off drawing upon patience. Don’t rush to put new plans into motion — take your time, just as Mercury will gradually work its way back to normal speed. Take on as few demanding activities as possible to avoid the feeling that you’re running behind. Be careful about what you reveal today, as well. Later today, a minor but challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto can raise some tensions surrounding your sometimes perfectionistic goals with work, routines, or health that can interfere with enjoyment in other life departments. You may feel pressured to do something quickly when patience would probably serve you better.
VirgoMercury ends its retrograde cycle early today, dear Virgo, and new information or a different perspective helps you make better decisions. News you’ve been waiting for arrives, and matters you’ve been on the fence about appear much clearer. However, it’s best to take your time. Just as Mercury takes its own time to regain normal speed, you should be easing back into your projects and decisions. Later today, you can feel particularly frustrated about things that seem beyond your control with Pluto in minor but challenging aspect to the Sun. You could feel torn between working on a project alone or drawing upon other resources to lighten your load. It’s not a natural choice for you right now since you enjoy the satisfaction of doing something on your own.
LibraMercury turns direct early today after weeks of retrograde motion, dear Libra. With this transition today, it’s best to be more vigilant with details regarding relationships, business, and finances. Even so, these very same things are set to clear up, move forward, and unblock in the coming days and weeks. Delays also lift with education, publishing, or transit. Again today, it’s not the time for clear perceptions. If you’ve been accumulating resentment, it may be looking for ways to release itself! The temptation to oversee or over-control people and situations can be strong but won’t resolve anything. Try not to count on others to do precisely as you want or expect. Minor irritations can seem larger than life today, but life is set to smooth out soon.
ScorpioMercury turns direct early today, dear Scorpio, after weeks of retrograde motion. The day can stir up restlessness, but it’s not the time to make big decisions or plans. Information should unclog and delays can lift in the days ahead, making it easier to make informed decisions. Today, you can have some difficulties understanding a partner’s behavior or intentions, and you may be reading a situation the wrong way. Try to focus on uncomplicated endeavors now and slow down and observe rather than make bold moves. With Pluto involved in a minor challenging aspect with the Sun, it’s too easy to work yourself up about things you can’t truly control. You may feel that you’re out of the loop or in the dark about a matter, which can be frustrating. However, you may need to let go of the idea that you “need” to know, as this drive can cause you more frustration than is healthy or necessary.
SagittariusMercury turns direct today after more than three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Sagittarius. Due to some confusion with the shift, you might want to save critical discussions for a clearer time. As more information comes in, you’ll feel increasingly more equipped to make decisions. In the days ahead, missing links will fill in, getting the ball moving with projects that were put on the back burner. Restlessness is likely today as there can be a lack of solid plans or too many things up in the air. Later today, there is a tendency to allow fear of being out of the loop to interfere with your enjoyment. A Sun-Pluto aspect can stir up some worries that you’re not on top of matters related to money, ownership, or respect. If you have the energy, time, and opportunity to make changes that improve your life, do so, but avoid worrying too hard about what you can’t truly control.
CapricornMercury ends its retrograde cycle early today, dear Capricorn. While it will take a bit of time to reorient yourself as Mercury turns direct, you’ll enjoy the forward motion and lifted delays in the coming days and weeks, primarily related to health, work, creative projects, dating, and communications. You might return to previous conversations with increased clarity. Today is not the kind of day for working quickly towards a goal as life can feel like an obstacle course just for the moment. Right now, letting go of a need for reliable answers can help you navigate the day’s tricky points. Later today, some tension is possible with Pluto in your sign forming a minor challenging aspect with the Sun. It’s a manageable influence, but watching for hanging on too tightly to attitudes or methods that bring you down makes sense. Control is very often an illusion, and the more you attempt to get it, the more you lose your freedom to be yourself and enjoy your life.
AquariusMercury ends its retrograde cycle early today, dear Aquarius. You might revisit conversations or problems that confused you in recent weeks, now with more information or variables to consider. Today, you may not have all you need to make the bigger decisions. However, your confidence will build as you move forward. Also today, a Sun-Pluto aspect can produce a subtle feeling of being excluded, or guilt can keep you from fully enjoying yourself. It may be best to put projects to rest or to the side (if possible) if they are interfering with getting the leisure and regeneration you need. You might look for areas where you may be overdoing things due to restlessness.
PiscesMercury turns direct early today after more than three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Pisces. For today, be as clear as you can in your discussions and statements, or better yet, reserve judgment! It makes sense to treat the day as a transitional one rather than a time for bold moves. In the days ahead, information could emerge that sets you on a slightly different path. Connecting and transit become more straightforward, but be sure to take new projects and developments slowly. Just as Mercury doesn’t immediately resume normal speed, you should ease back into things. Today, you could be feeling a bit out of sync, but while it can be difficult to see progress right now, little steps count. You can feel a little distracted or divided. Suppressing emotions can lead to compulsive behaviors, so it’s best to aim to be self-aware and second-guess impulses that go against the grain.
