Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday might find you a little scattered but also responsible and more ambitious or goal-oriented than usual, dear Aries. Perhaps you’re inspired to make more money or motivated by a pet project or unique idea. With the Moon in your solar tenth house all day, you’re more focused on rules, performance, and accomplishment. Today’s Mercury-Uranus transit can point to some distractions that lead to minor hiccups or misunderstandings. There can be impatience with routine, and it makes sense to find ways to refresh yourself mentally.
TaurusThe Moon in your solar ninth house encourages you to look at the bigger picture, dear Taurus. It’s a time of the lunar month for gaining perspective and finding mental refreshment. Urging you on with this is a Mercury-Uranus transit that can produce some tension. You can feel rushed to do things differently. You might unwittingly misrepresent yourself in your communications, making it best to take more care with your words. Look for opportunities to explore new topics. The Moon harmonizes with Uranus in your sign, helping boost you up. Good energy for teaching and sharing is with you, but you are at your best if the activities you take part in today allow you some room to explore or change your mind.
GeminiSeeking hidden answers and motivations can enrich your life if you use this energy wisely, dear Gemini. The Moon spends the day undercover in your solar eighth house, inclining you to observe before acting. You can be somewhat divided in your thoughts and attention, as you’re especially interested in your personal life, but you’re also quite focused on your worldly goals or ambitions. Be ready for a change of plans or some imperfect conversations. You’re likely to learn more about yourself and others through observation, so it may be better to aim to do more listening and looking than talking just for the time being.
CancerWhile a conversation can help trigger a new idea, dear Cancer, there could be some surprise elements or news involved that keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s not always easy to relax today. If you find yourself over-stimulated, take steps to tune out distractions. It’s a relationship-oriented day for you, and you tend to ease off a little with personal agendas and plans. Your ability to see both sides of a situation can come in handy today. You may find yourself mediating problems. The Moon spends the day in your opposite sign, and you seek ways to balance your life as you tend to look at your life objectively.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of routines, dear Leo, stirring the need to straighten out your life in fundamental ways. Today’s Mercury-Uranus transit can pressure you, whether it’s coming from the outside or from within. Aim to distance yourself from a problem if it’s stressing you so that you can gain perspective–there’s a good chance that you’re too close to a situation to make much sense of it just for now. Surprise elements can change your mind about a matter, although it may be temporary. If you can avoid distractions, you can benefit from a nice energy flow to accomplish your work and fill responsibilities. Look for ways to improve your daily habits or routines.
VirgoToday’s Moon supports emotional and creative expression, dear Virgo. Still, Mercury forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus, and there can be meddling to deal with, or there are too many options to sort through. Others might bring too much “noise” into your life. However, consider that you may very well benefit from the feedback you receive, even if it’s not in a pretty package, if only because it stimulates you to think in new ways. Distractions aside, it’s a good time to find expression through leisure activities or entertainment.
LibraThe temptation to push or pressure matters is with you today, dear Libra, but it’s best to keep the pace even. Mercury forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus, potentially exciting the nerves. The Moon spends the day in your home sector, pointing to a deep need for a little more security in your life. This combination is not ideal, making it best to remain flexible, allowing twists and turns to point you in a new direction. Take your needs to relax, rest, and get comfortable more seriously now, but consider that getting some mental refreshment or surprises can lead to useful improvements.
ScorpioCommunicating candidly with a special someone can be refreshing today, dear Scorpio, as long as you keep in mind that Mercury forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. Today is strong for personal interests, but there can be some underlying tension today, and it’s best to watch for rushing decisions. Special attention to constructive projects or variations on your routine can serve as emotional refreshment. You crave more mental refreshment and engagement today. Despite a few hiccups, you’re in decent form socially and romantically. Adapting quickly to minor changes puts you in the best position right now.
SagittariusYour practical affairs are on the front burner today, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon in your solar second house all day. It makes sense to pay special attention to your needs for comfort, security, and accomplishment. Do your best to avoid pressuring yourself to take on too many decisions or interests since it may cut into your productivity rather than boost it. Mercury forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus, which can stir a hectic theme despite your best efforts to keep things quiet and balanced. Verbalizing or writing down your options can help clarify them.
CapricornWhile there’s more warmth in your presentation today, dear Capricorn, others may be somewhat hard to reach. You’re picking up information quickly and intuitively. Still, there can be many distractions or concerns getting in the way of clear airwaves, so take extra time to communicate effectively. You are especially in touch with your feelings, needs, and emotional world with the Moon in your sign all day. Nevertheless, this transit can also magnify needs to the point that they feel urgent.
AquariusWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house all day, you’re inclined to avoid atmospheres that are too noisy, busy, or demanding, dear Aquarius, and it’s a good idea. With this transit, it’s better to digest, process, and review before coming to a turning point or decision. It’s a good time to envision what you want and wait until the Moon enters your sign to start pursuing your goals. With Mercury in minor challenging aspect to Uranus, you may feel a little defensive or worry about your business, finances, and possibly your ability to meet challenges. You could be hungry for new ideas and fresh methods or approaches, making your usual routine seem particularly dull. While you need some time to regroup and collect yourself today, your appeal runs high.
PiscesWhat you communicate may stir up some trouble today, dear Pisces, or there’s some risk of speaking impulsively or prematurely about a matter. Putting it out there may be just what’s needed to move a matter forward, and you might decide it’s worth it. Otherwise, it may be better to watch for misunderstandings. Split decisions in the material world may also be unwise. Try not to take on too much today to avoid mistakes due to being distracted. The Moon spends the day in your sector of friends, dreams, and wishes, encouraging your needs to connect and share.
