Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house today, dear Aries, and you may instinctively pull into yourself just a little. It’s a time of the month for some alone time or extra rest. Even so, the Moon forms a square to Mars in your communications sector today, and it can be challenging to get the downtime you need temporarily. Demanding people or circumstances may very well find you! With today’s transits, try not to rush matters to a quick conclusion due to impatience. If you jump ahead of yourself, you’ll be creating unnecessary tension. It’s best to tie up loose ends. Think up ways to deal with irritating situations that serve your interests in the long run.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your solar eleventh house for a couple of days, dear Taurus, and you can feel the need to relax some of your ambitions and pay better attention to your happiness goals. Aim to give thought to your finances and how you can make meaningful changes that free you from worry and limiting attitudes. Strive to lift yourself above petty disagreements if they happen now. Relations can be a little tense with or among friends, and tension may be more about power and control than the issues on the table. Aim to focus on softening and moderating your impulses, even if it’s very tempting to get involved.
GeminiThe Moon moves into your career and reputation sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini. It’s a period of the lunar month for checking in with your goals and priorities. Close relations, personal plans, and career-related connections can be heavy or loaded today, however. It may be best to take your time with new plans or initiatives. It’s not easy to turn the other cheek today, as you can feel pulled in different directions and easily frustrated. Responsibilities demand your attention, but you can feel divided as you’re also experiencing a strong pull towards your personal interests and independence. Try not to pressure yourself to do more than what is reasonable at the moment. Consider planning out your next move rather than pushing your agenda.
CancerThe Moon moves into your solar ninth house of the higher mind for a couple of days, dear Cancer. You’re paying more attention to far-reaching goals and plans, and looking at the bigger picture can soothe you. Still, there can be tension or uncertainty in spots today, and you might aim to avoid the temptation to try to control situations around you to compensate. There can be difficulties coming to a place of agreement or understanding with someone. Insecurities can seem to emerge out of nowhere when they’re more likely to be delayed reactions to recent events. If you’ve been overdoing things, you may be feeling the consequences now.
LeoThere can be some issues to manage related to money, intimacy, or power dynamics today, dear Leo. Aim to be selective about what you allow to take center stage in your head right now. Transits today stir creative urges and a need to share them. Competitiveness is likely, but you might be able to turn it to your advantage. There can be some reason to keep certain matters to yourself and to think more carefully before going forward with important projects. Try not to waste your time worrying about those things you can’t control, dwelling on matters that eat away at you, or overthink or worry about resources. Buried resentments can emerge, possibly in a disruptive way. Feeling on edge can be a symptom of something deeper that’s worth exploring.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your partnership sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo, and it can be a time to foster a sense of balance and peace with others and in your personal environment. There can be some trial and error getting to this point today with tense transits. The expression “it takes two” applies now. If you feel too dependent on others’ schedules, plans, and needs, take steps to change this, but give yourself time to sort it out. People can be possessive or competitive temporarily, and transits seem to trigger power complexes. The desire for company is real, but there is a lot to sort out in your inner world, and taking some space or drawing some lines can be useful.
LibraYou could find yourself more sensitive to imbalances of power today, dear Libra, or people who seem to have a hidden agenda. If you feel your daily affairs are getting out of your control, tension can ensue now. It may be best to avoid overthinking situations or acknowledge the rather intense feelings that emerge today. It’s probably best not to act on them until you’ve processed things. Before making commitments right now, adopt a wait-and-see approach. There is some tension in your communications sectors, which can also serve as a distraction from good decision-making. Your desire to be useful and helpful is strong, but you might feel frustrated if you are not appreciated for all you do. The motivation to make things work or make things right is strong today so that if you can get past the scattered feeling of the day, you can accomplish much. Learn from what seems to be triggering your tension, but aim to work on getting to a more peaceful frame of mind.
ScorpioTensions or conflicts can erupt seemingly out of nowhere today, dear Scorpio. While they can be overwhelming or surprising, you might be able to learn something about your true desires from them. You might swing from wanting to trust something very much to a somewhat suspicious mindset, however, and it can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride. The Moon moves into your solar fifth house of heartfelt pursuits for a couple of days, reminding you of your need for fun, play, and self-expression. Today, it forms a tense aspect with Mars in your intimacy sector, and signals can get crossed in love matters. It’s important not to push an issue too far. If you’ve been holding on to resentment, it might surface unexpectedly. Consider ways to release tension productively.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your solar fourth house today, where it will spend just over two days, dear Sagittarius. It’s not the most outgoing of points in the lunar cycle. You’re investing more of your emotions in your personal life. It’s an area where there is likely to be more intensity than usual. If you’re feeling frustrated with your domestic situation, it can motivate you to make valuable improvements. Still, seek ways to lighten your load. Worries about security or finances could stir some tension or conflict. Watch also for a tendency to magnify or obsess over small problems today.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your solar third house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn. You’re focusing on your personal interests, connections, and studies. With Moon-Mars and Sun-Juno squares today, watch that you don’t read so much into situations that you put yourself in a bad mood. It may not be easy to pull your mind out of a spiraling loop today. Frustrations emerging now tend to have a deeper root than they seem on the surface. Complex power dynamics can emerge. Focusing on a solvable problem in the mental or mechanical world may be an excellent way to release energy constructively.
AquariusEmotions tend to settle as the Moon moves out of your sign and into your solar second house today, dear Aquarius. Still, the day can bring on some minor conflict or cranky energy, which may involve concerns about money or ownership. It may be hard to know others’ agendas unless you look hard. Someone in your life can be touchy, sensitive, and defensive and may not accept help or your input. You may need to work around things. While you can readily go your own way, things are easier when others cooperate, so you may want to adopt a wait-and-see approach now. Seek the less complicated route to your goals if possible.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Pisces, bringing some unacknowledged feelings to the surface. This transit lasts just over two days, and it can be quite illuminating, giving you a sense that you’re starting fresh. Today, the Moon forms a square to Mars, and it’s best to watch for an initial overreaction to a situation. This combination can fire you up quickly! Tensions with others may be about power and control rather than the surface topic, or they can stem from having too many balls in the air. People are not very inclined to put their cards on the table at the moment. It makes sense to find ways to release the pressure constructively.
