Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon transit inspires you to see your life a little differently, and it can be refreshing, dear Aries. You’re restless but watch for a tendency to procrastinate. Breaking out of a routine can be a strong draw, but you might focus so much on it that you forget to appreciate what’s before you. You’re seeking an emotional release from pressure, but the inclination is to take this too far. Or, you might end up jumping from one endeavor to the next simply because you can’t decide where to channel your energies. Later today, aim to confront your fears rather than allow them to drive your decisions and behavior.
TaurusWhile the day is a little complicated, dear Taurus, your mood lifts when you feel emotionally stronger and equipped to make a change. Fortunately, you can tune into this energy quite easily today with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day. You could feel torn between dealing with a personal matter and outside demands, and you may very well want to escape in spots. If you have an idea or plan that’s especially close to your heart, you may want to wait for a better day to present it. There can be a brooding energy, but it may be best to lift yourself above petty disagreements. Avoid letting fears or insecurities control your actions, but do consider that the feelings you’re experiencing can give you clues as to secret desires. You can take the lesson from a situation and get closer to yourself as a result. As well, it’s a good day for strategy and analysis.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your opposite sign, dear Gemini, and you’re seeking balance, harmony, and perhaps some feedback or interaction. Taking care of others’ needs, particularly if you’ve been self-involved or busy lately, can be rewarding. Still, there is some tendency to fall back on others rather than do something yourself, which can keep you from a good experience. You may want to take extra care with sensitive topics today. If you need to clear the air, do so, keeping in mind that the current astrological weather inclines us to be more reactive than usual.
CancerYou’re more willing and patient to see the rewards of getting and feeling organized today, dear Cancer, with the Moon spending the day in your solar sixth house. Find ways to get caught up in your day, as keeping busy in this way can feel good. Still, consider that falling back on little jobs and tasks could be about avoiding something bigger. You’re inclined to engage in productive procrastination. While you genuinely want to get along with others and smooth over differences, there can be difficulties coming to a place of agreement or understanding today, but it’s temporary. Tensions today tend to stem from people expecting one another to read their minds or to intuit what it is they need and want. With people more sensitive than usual, it may be best to observe, wait, and see.
LeoThere can be times when you feel out of step or as if you’re going against the grain today, dear Leo. Getting to a compromise and balance may very well be exhausting, but worthwhile. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, creativity, and entertainment, inclining you to come out of your shell and share. There can be some tendency to overthink or worry about resources, and buried resentments can emerge, possibly in a disruptive way. Frustrations in relationships can be brewing now. When tension emerges, use the power of candid communications to rise above it all or figure out what it all means. Try not to waste your time worrying about those things you can’t control.
VirgoWith the Moon in your solar fourth house all day, dear Virgo, you could feel a strong urge to be alone or with only a trusted few. It’s a time for recharging and finding your center. While social elements can affect productivity now, your efforts are nevertheless meaningful and contributing to long-term happiness. Still, you can feel torn between wanting to stick with the familiar or reach out and share with others, and this can leave you spinning your wheels in spots today. Tension related to sensitive feelings can emerge, and people seem a little more afraid of rejection or betrayal. People in your life seem to need more reassurance than usual, or you find yourself treading carefully. If you feel too dependent on others’ schedules, plans, and needs, aim to take steps to change this.
LibraWhile the Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Libra, it may not be easy to find a receptive audience. The day requires some patience. In all likelihood, you can get a lot done if you pace yourself and slow down a little. Sticking to your usual methods, ideas, and habits can be a strong draw, although they can keep you stuck in a rut. Attempts to protect your feelings may take you further from the problem than is healthy. Flaws in your immediate environment seem to stand out more than usual. Your desire to be useful and helpful is strong right now, but if you’re not appreciated for your efforts, you might feel resentful today. The trick is to do it for yourself first and foremost.
ScorpioYou could find that trying to get the timing right can be difficult for many things on an emotional level today, dear Scorpio. Procrastination can have you busy doing many things, except the most important tasks. Distractions are plenty, and changes of plans are likely. As well, falling back on old habits can be an issue now. Interactions may not be all smooth going, and it can be all too easy to push an issue too far. If you’ve been holding on to resentment, it might surface now, perhaps unexpectedly. You may be swinging from wanting to trust something to a somewhat suspicious mindset. Fortunately, you’re in a generally good place of accepting your feelings and understanding of your affections, helping you take a lesson from your experiences.
SagittariusEmotions heighten today, dear Sagittarius, and while colorful, you may not find it easy to manage or channel your feelings. There can be some tendency to waste time or to procrastinate. You might notice a timing problem, and getting others to go along with your plans can be difficult. Worries about security or finances could be at the root of tensions in relationships, but you may be wasting your time and energy if you choose to dwell on them. If you allow pressure to motivate you to make improvements, there can be some inventive solutions now. Buried resentments can be popping up seemingly out of the blue. It may be best to look for ways to lighten your load instead of taking on something new.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, signaling a time for more rest and attention to personal or private matters. In many ways, you can be very content to withdraw into yourself and digest recent events. Still, today’s transits make it all too easy to fall back on old habits that keep you from helpful experiences. Aim to honor your need for rest, but recognize if you’re being avoidant to your detriment. Also, a Venus-Pluto minor challenge can stir up resentments or fears related to missing out. Frustrations emerging now tend to have a deeper root than what appears on the surface of things. You may be able to find a nice balance between keeping to yourself and trying out new things, but there can be some trial and error involved. It’s better to take things easy because taking on too much can mean you end up only spinning your wheels.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of hopes, wishes, and friendship, dear Aquarius. You can experience a strong need to pull yourself away from competitive energies, and a feeling of camaraderie with others can lift your spirits and make you feel that you’re moving forward. Still, there is some tendency to use this tendency as a way to avoid getting close to someone or dealing with an important issue. You’re inclined to fall back on old habits rather than challenge yourself to grow and improve. As you do, you might stir up some guilt. As well, a Venus-Pluto minor challenge points to possible worries about money or resources later today.
PiscesYou can be feeling a little stuck in the past or in a rut at times today, dear Pisces. With the Moon at the top of your chart, it’s time for a check-in with your goals and performance, but there is no need to pressure yourself to do more than what is reasonable at the moment. Vague concerns and worries tend to hang heavily in the air, but it’s best not to overthink things. Today favors making adjustments over bold moves. It makes sense to watch for an initial overreaction to a situation. 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–or not enough! If you feel in limbo, try to be productive while you wait and see.
