Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mercury in your solar twelfth house until the 19th, dear Aries, you can be more insular, observant, and sometimes tentative. It’s a time to give certain plans or elements of your life further thought rather than your usual style of diving right in. You can benefit from contemplative activities, research, and reflection. It’s a fabulous cycle for prioritizing mental rest. Today, the Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, and you gravitate to activities that give you pleasure or a break from the usual. Today, it may be challenging to manage all that you have going on. You might feel unsupported or worried about your position in your career or with your reputation. The key to taming anxiety, frustration, and perhaps a bit of paranoia can be to give yourself some space to reason things out on your own or with the objective opinion of someone you trust outside of the situation. To some extent, you may need to be cautious of competition these days, but it’s important to keep this from taking over. Allowing yourself to take a step back to reflect will lead to better choices in the future.
TaurusWith the current Mercury transit, dear Taurus, you’re in great shape 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 lasts until the 19th. Networking activities increase and add something valuable to your life. Contributing, connecting, and collaborating bring rewards. Today’s transits enhance these themes. Still, you could feel a little self-protective later today. With the Sun and Pluto approaching a minor challenging aspect, you could fixate on an unresolved, frustrating matter from the past. Allowing for differences in opinion without feeling attacked and genuinely listening to other viewpoints can be rewarding. However, it also makes sense to examine any tension that emerges so that you can get to the bottom of it.
GeminiYou’re bringing more of your knowledge, expertise, and intelligence to your professional or public life these days, dear Gemini, with Mercury’s transit of your solar tenth house until the 19th. This transit stirs goal-oriented thinking, and today, it’s particularly creative and original. Circumstances may be such that you have more decision-making responsibility. Your words are also more impactful, and it’s best to spend more time than usual crafting what you want to say and present to the world. Later today, we approach a Sun-Pluto aspect that can stir tensions, especially interpersonal ones. Anxiety may seem to interfere with your relationships or work. Still, you might take some firm steps toward improving your current situation to feel less uneasy or vulnerable in the future. There are no quick and easy fixes, but starting small and working on things one step at a time will get you closer to a freer, more empowering position. It’s a good time to identify activities and thought processes that drain you and consume too much of your time.
CancerYou benefit from a steady pace today, dear Cancer, and you’re inclined to focus more on your physical and sensual needs than usual. You’re also in a positive cycle for sharing ideas, learning new things, and building knowledge until the 19th. It makes it easier to let go of minor problems and enjoy a broader, more optimistic perspective. You’re thinking about your life in terms of the longer view, helping to soothe your nerves. Later today, there can be some tension brewing in a one-to-one relationship. You enjoy some predictability in your closest relationships, but with Pluto and the Sun heading into a minor challenging aspect, others can trigger you in small but annoying ways. Experiences now put you in touch with some of your fears of change, unpredictability, and loss of control. Your first reaction may be to search for ways to regain or maintain control, but attempts to do so can bring about undesirable results. Power games get nowhere now.
LeoWith the Moon in your sign all day, dear Leo, your needs and personal plans are in focus. There’s a strong emphasis on whatever boosts your spirits. Still, you’re well-positioned to plan and strategize rather than jumping too quickly into action these days, and today is no exception. 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 until the 19th, and you’re very successful at this task! It’s an active period for deeper thinking and understanding and a generally good time for intimate conversations or consultations. Later today, tension can result from overattachment to a particular method, and knowing when to let go is being kind to yourself! You tend to shoulder responsibilities automatically, and while this can work in your favor a lot of the time, you can occasionally feel too much pressure. Your pride may keep you from sharing a sense of being overwhelmed. Think about ways to share the load, even while continuing to give it your best.
VirgoThe Moon in your solar twelfth house all day indicates a time to take a breather, dear Virgo. You need the chance to regroup and recharge your emotional batteries. Even so, there can be interesting conversations today. Mercury is in your opposing sign until the 19th, and you’re generally more likely to consult with others, discuss ideas and plans, and seek feedback. You gravitate to people who stimulate your thinking or offer you a different perspective. You want intellectual companionship. It can be a wonderful time for collaboration. As the day advances, you’re inclined to take on more concerns and worries than is healthy. There can be some competitive elements in your social interactions that serve to frustrate you. It can be challenging to ignore problems or to allow them to resolve themselves. With a Sun-Pluto transit in play, pressures and frustrations take on bigger proportions, and you could find yourself obsessing over things that don’t deserve attention.
LibraThe current Mercury transit encourages smarter work habits until the 19th, dear Libra, and clever methods are in strong focus today. 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 give your attention. There can be creative ways to relate and interact that pleasingly break from the traditional. However, as the day advances, complications are possible. Consider that your need for security and control in your domestic world can be so strong sometimes that it might obscure your decisions in other areas of your life. You are learning to embrace change, but allowing yourself this luxury takes time. You stand to gain much self-understanding through your reactions to others, and you may gravitate to activities that bring spice to your emotional life.
ScorpioTransits spark up your creative side these days, dear Scorpio, particularly mentally. Until the 19th, you’re well-positioned to enjoy learning, sharing, and connecting. The power of your words is evident, bringing new opportunities into your life, and word of mouth works well for you. Guiding and teaching can figure strongly and rewardingly. You can be more creative or playful with your comments and bolder when sharing your views. Later today, watch for taking on more concerns and worries than is healthy. A Sun-Pluto minor challenging aspect can trigger some fears of losing control over a situation. The tendency is to be guarded with what you share, but consider that your intense need to get everything right may effectively pressure you too much.
SagittariusYou’re likely to enjoy some revealing and warm conversations these days, dear Sagittarius, and today is no exception. You’re in a cycle, lasting until the 19th, that points to 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. Today, you’re doing things a little differently and can find yourself resistant to fitting in. As the day advances, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge comes into play, and worries about money or security can magnify. While you’re inclined to keep these fears to yourself, it may be helpful to share your concerns with a trusted person so that you can release some pressure. An objective opinion might help since you’re probably too close to a situation.
CapricornYou’re in generally strong shape for learning, studying, connecting, and communicating these days, dear Capricorn. Sometimes 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 the current Mercury cycle of information-gathering and improved connections. You’re putting out feelers and learning a lot of diverse but useful things until the 19th. The creative side of this cycle is prominent today. However, later today, watch for shouldering too many responsibilities since pressures within can build. Frustrations might mount related to wanting to do more than you can currently manage, but don’t push yourself. You may fear revealing your vulnerabilities, but consider that it would be most helpful to release tension, even if you start small.
AquariusYou’re well-positioned to add details to your plans these days, dear Aquarius, and your methods and ideas are especially creative and original today. Until the 19th, you’re more often working with your talents and putting them to practical use. You can be skilled at getting to the bottom line. When stressed, there can be some worry or overstimulation related to money, possessions, and resources. Otherwise, it’s a great time to develop patience. Later today and into tomorrow, interactions can be a little tense. Avoid starting or furthering power games. Consider that guardedness of your privacy or shying away from deeper issues may be at the root of tensions at the moment. Something you’ve swept under the rug needs some attention. If you feel overwhelmed, aim to start working on problems one step and a little at a time.
PiscesYou have excellent energy with you for organizing your life in key ways today, dear Pisces. You thoroughly enjoy piecing things together. A new method can emerge that makes your duties or tasks more pleasant. Your ideas also stand out as unique and especially creative or original. You have Mercury in your sign until the 19th, and your interest in the world around you–especially communicating with it–is stronger than usual. At the same time, you’re more inclined to make 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. Later today, avoid putting too high expectations on yourself. Consider that you may be bearing others’ burdens and hardships more than is healthy, perhaps at your own expense.
