Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury heads into your privacy sector today, dear Aries, and in the weeks ahead, you can be more insular, observant, and sometimes tentative. It’s a time for giving certain plans or elements of your life some further thought rather than your usual style of diving right in. You can benefit from contemplative or meditative activities, research, and reflection during this cycle that lasts until April 3rd. You may be a little more secretive or indecisive during this period, but it’s a fabulous cycle for prioritizing mental rest. You might put a project to rest or finish up a long-term project. Today, you can feel bolder and more emotional with the Moon in your sign all day. Even so, you tend to challenge current circumstances if they feel limiting or restrictive in any way. Watch for acting on whims.
TaurusMercury begins its transit of your social sector today, dear Taurus, and the weeks ahead are excellent for inventive thinking, fresh ideas, and interesting connections. You’re paying particular attention to your dreams, wishes, hopes, and happiness goals during this cycle that runs until April 3rd. Networking activities increase and stand to add something valuable to your life now. Contributing, connecting, and collaborating may bring rewards. There can be minor tense spots today, but while you can be more reactive than usual, you’re also especially resilient, bouncing back quickly. You can feel impulsive at times today, and attractions can be unusual or sudden but may not last for very long. Ideally, these stimulate you to think in different ways, ultimately helping you discover new tastes and perspectives.
GeminiMercury moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Gemini, and this cycle can mean adapting and adjusting in ways that benefit your career, reputation, status, or long-term goals in the coming weeks. It’s a time for bringing more of your knowledge, expertise, and intelligence to your professional or public life. This transit lasts until April 3rd and stirs goal-oriented thinking. Circumstances may be such that you have more decision-making responsibility now. Your words are also more impactful, and it makes sense to spend a little more time than usual crafting what you want to say and present to the world. Today, be wary of breaking commitments and promises, as it’s surprisingly easy to do under current transits. Spells of impatience today could lead to actions that you might later wish you’d avoided.
CancerA positive cycle for sharing your ideas, learning new things, and building your knowledge begins today, dear Cancer, as Mercury heads into harmony with your sign. It’s an excellent transit for letting go of small problems and enjoying a broader, more optimistic perspective. Until April 3rd, you’re especially inclined to think about your life in terms of the longer view, helping to soothe your nerves. You’re more inclined to get worked up over differences of opinion from time to time during this cycle. There might also be an inclination to forget, overlook, or ignore some of the details of daily life or routines. If you keep these things in check, it’s a fine time for learning and sharing.
LeoMercury begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Leo. Until April 3rd, you’ll be making plans and formulating strategies rather than jumping too quickly into action. It’s a good time to sort out trouble areas or mediate and negotiate better relations, finances, support, and life strategies. You may be doing more troubleshooting than usual, and you’re very successful at this task during this cycle. It’s an active period for deeper thinking and understanding, and it’s a generally good time for intimate conversations or consultations. Today, everyone seems to be bumping into one another, but energies are fresh, and you can find a lot to pique your interest. An unusual desire or whim may take hold, sending you on a wild goose chase or simply a new direction of discovery.
VirgoMercury moves into the sign opposite yours today, dear Virgo, where it will transit until April 3rd. You’re more likely to consult with others, discuss ideas and plans, and seek feedback in the weeks ahead. You gravitate to people who stimulate your thinking or offer you a different perspective. You want intellectual companionship or connecting through the mind figures strongly during this period. It can be a wonderful time for a collaboration of sorts. Even so, there could be crossed wires. It’s not easy to judge the true value of things, people, and possibly even situations just for now. There can be some fickleness in relationships today, and it’s not an ideal time for getting close to someone. There could be a broken agreement or canceled social engagement to deal with, but you’re also in a good position to find something that pleasantly consumes your attention.
LibraMercury begins its transit of your work and health sector today, dear Libra, encouraging smarter work habits in the weeks ahead. You’ll be giving a lot more thought to your work, services, health, and routines during this cycle that lasts until April 3rd, and you might come up with improved systems and methods in the process. It’s an excellent time for honing skills and learning useful things. Do watch for an inclination to fret or worry about matters you don’t always pay much attention. It’s not especially easy to focus on productive tasks today, as you tend to seek a little more excitement. Still, your powers of attraction are strong, and you may very well think up creative ways to relate and interact that pleasingly break from the traditional.
ScorpioMercury begins its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Scorpio, sparking up your creative side, particularly on a mental level. Until April 3rd, you’re in a good position to enjoy learning, sharing, and connecting. The power of your words is evident now, bringing new opportunities into your life, and word of mouth works well for you. Guiding and teaching can figure strongly and rewardingly in the weeks ahead. You can be a little more creative or playful with your words, and bolder when it comes to sharing your views. Attractions can be more intellectual during this cycle, or you draw in people through your intelligence and wit. Today, cooperation doesn’t come easily, but only if you’re following the same relating patterns. The need for excitement is strong today, yet you’re also hungry for balance and steadiness, resulting in an emotional tug of war.
SagittariusMercury begins its transit of your home and family sector today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re likely to enjoy some revealing and warm conversations in the weeks ahead. Sometimes this transit means a busy home life or frequent discussions with family and loved ones. It can also be a time to evaluate your inner feelings, values, and connections or assess and negotiate in your domestic life. You have a stronger sense of others’ moods or needs. You seek special moments or patches of rest and a break from overthinking and overdoing during this cycle that lasts until April 3rd. Today, it’s best not to put your faith in others’ schedules or promises as there can be changes of mind and heart. If you’re feeling antsy, you likely need to change things up a little. Traditional methods and patterns of relating don’t seem to satisfy or work well today. Family life may be a bit scattered, but it’s nothing a refreshing change of pace can’t resolve.
CapricornMercury moves into your communications sector today, dear Capricorn, and in the weeks ahead, you’re in strong shape for learning, studying, connecting, and communicating. There are likely to be times when you feel too busy, or perhaps a little wired or fidgety, to truly relax. However, if you avoid mental strain or stress, you’ll reap the rewards of this cycle of information-gathering and improved connections. You’re putting out feelers and learning a lot of diverse but useful things. Today’s Venus-Uranus minor challenge suggests we’d rather go our own way than cooperate. If you feel cooped up, it’s hard to make the best of it. Instead of spinning your wheels, you might aim to channel your energy into tasks that truly improve your personal environment.
AquariusMercury moves into your personal resources sector today, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until April 3rd. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be putting some of your ideas and enterprises into action or adding the details to plans. It’s also a time for working with your talents and putting them to practical use. You can be skilled at getting to the bottom line–you’re not so interested in the extras, preferring to keep things simple during this cycle. When stressed, there can be some worry or overstimulation related to money, possessions, and resources. Otherwise, it’s a great time to develop patience. Today, cooperation isn’t a given with Venus and Uranus in a minor challenging aspect. Something fun can quickly turn into a problematic situation. You seem to need different “rules” or approaches for things to work smoothly today. Watch for very sudden wants and desires.
PiscesYou might find opportunities to make necessary clarifications in the weeks ahead, dear Pisces. Mercury enters your sign today, and your interest in the world around you–especially communicating with it–increases many times over. While you were (mostly) content to keep your observations to yourself in recent weeks, you’re now craving a little more interaction. Still, this is a time when you make more executive decisions, worrying less about feedback and more about what genuinely works for you. It’s a good time for increased confidence in and enthusiasm for various mental projects or pursuits. In fact, this can be a power period on a mental level. You’re ready to put the past behind you, and you have plenty of fresh ideas for the future. You tend to attract what you want through the power of words. Today, what’s likely to be at the heart of discontent is a need for a change of pace. Make changes mindfully, even if it’s only about looking into a new interest.
