Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies are good for gaining some perspective, dear Aries, although your defenses may not be up to par this morning, leaving you somewhat vulnerable to others’ judgments or comments. Be gentle with yourself and avoid setting unreasonable expectations. Make it a point to take moments to relax, center yourself, and enjoy the present. The Moon moves to the top of your chart, drawing your attention to your priorities and longer-term goals. A renewed or new motivation to improve your approach to life is with you, lifting your spirits.
TaurusYou tend to focus on your deeper and perhaps darker feelings and needs today, dear Taurus. The meaning behind others’ behavior is more interesting to you than usual. Aim to consider your spiritual and emotional needs, not just surface desires for best results. This can be a day in which you help others find themselves or discover their own talents. In some ways, the day is about renewal or healing. Later today, the Moon moves into harmony with your sign, and you’ll find it easier to express your emotions or channel your feelings effectively.
GeminiThere is a stronger focus on balancing independence and togetherness these days, dear Gemini. You seem to want both, which is possible, but it can require some adjustments to work well. Today, you tend to seek harmony more so than usual, and you’ll go to great lengths to achieve it. Easing off your personal plans just for now can be good for you as you take more time to understand the role of others in your life. You may need to get over a couple of small hurdles and make some refinements early today, but as the day advances, you’re in fine shape for pacing and centering yourself.
CancerYou tend to seek ways to improve your daily habits and reduce stress today with the Moon in your solar sixth house much of the day, dear Cancer. Putting your affairs in order can help take the pressure off new initiatives and help free up your schedule. Interactions can be competitive early today, but it’s easier to get into a better headspace as the day advances. You might enjoy a renewed sense of mission or dedication to a path as you find more of it to like. Later today, the Moon moves into your opposite sign, where it will stay for a couple of days, and you’re in a position to get a different perspective on your life. This transit helps you find more ways to balance and harmonize.
LeoYou put more weight in your ideas, perspective, and beliefs today, dear Leo. Confidence may take a little dip early today, but even if you don’t feel quite in step with others temporarily, you’re in good shape for boosting a sense of self-reliance. Getting out of a task can be tempting if your motivation levels are not up to par but too costly in the long run. Drawing boundaries can be difficult this morning, but there are creative, diplomatic ways to take the space you need, and you’re likely to find them. You’re in perfect shape for learning, guiding, and sharing as the day advances. You might refuel an interest in a particular subject or way of thinking, latching on to a sense of mission.
VirgoDo your best to find comforting activities and quiet moments, if possible, dear Virgo, with the Moon in your family and home sector much of the day. This transit tends to encourage the need to lay down some roots. While the morning isn’t easy for smooth interactions, it’s easier to pace yourself and focus on the end results later today. You might especially enjoy exploring a research project, psychological problem, or an intimate relationship a little more deeply. The week ahead is strong for healing, regenerating, growing, sharing, and guiding. Later today, you tend to come out of your shell.
LibraThis can be a lively day on a mental level, dear Libra. You’re sharp and communicative but living in your mind right now, so be sure your heart is behind what you’re saying in certain settings. This morning, you may be a little concerned about your duties, and it would be wise to try to center yourself now. As the day advances, you’re less likely to hold onto tension. It’s possible to have a breakthrough of understanding with a significant someone or of a particular relationship, past or present. Feeling a sense of mission is part of this, but be sure you are hitching your horse to the right wagon. As today advances, you’re in great shape for healing and guiding as a means to relax.
ScorpioYou might enjoy throwing yourself into a project or mystery to solve today, dear Scorpio. You’re seeking comfort and some predictability, but you’re also inclined to want to concentrate or specialize. Early today, there can be some tension, interference, or worry to manage. It’s not an ideal time for decision-making because worries and fears may undermine the process. As the day advances, it’s easier to center yourself. Still, aim to be selective with what you put your energy into today so that you can replenish rather than push yourself. This week’s energies are good for insight into a health or work matter. There can be breakthroughs for healing, chores, methods, or work, which can inspire you.
SagittariusThe major theme is your emotions today, dear Sagittarius, as they tend to come bubbling up to the surface, demanding your attention. Taking some distance from a situation may be just what you need to release doubts or see things in a new way early today, although challenging to pull off. You may find yourself in between others’ dilemmas, whether this is about mediating or overthinking problems. As the day advances, it becomes far easier to relax. The Moon moves out of your sign and into your resources sector later today, and you seek a stronger sense of continuity and security for a couple of days.
CapricornYou tend to retreat a little on an emotional level today, dear Capricorn. This changes when the Moon moves into your sign later today, but it’s important to pace yourself and treat yourself gently until then. A lot is going on under the surface of things. There can be some ambivalence early today, and it’s not your favorite state, so work on choosing a position and owning it. As the day advances, it’s easier to let things go. You’re awakening to a need to connect or interact. There can be a renewed commitment to family or dedication to improving your home life.
AquariusThe Moon in your social sector for much of the day suggests a desire to let go of pressures, dear Aquarius. Even so, there can be some underlying tensions revolving around your resources, matters of respect, values, or money early today. This can be a thoughtful day that’s better for making adjustments than major moves or changes. As the day advances, however, it feels smoother, and moving past difficulties comes naturally. You can have a strong desire to work on problem areas, particularly related to communication, transit, and connections. There can be a breakthrough related to learning and understanding. Later today pulls you into a quieter emotional place as the Moon moves into the sign just behind yours, signaling a winding down period for a couple of days.
PiscesYou can feel strongly about handling your work or obligations today, but it can be hard to turn all of your attention to your goals when personal matters seem to occupy much of your thoughts, dear Pisces. A lot is on your mind early today, and you’re inclined to juggle concerns and topics. However, as the day advances, it’s easier to see that taking on one thing at a time suits your purposes far better. You may find it better to wait out a decision if you’re feeling a little stuck between alternatives. You may very well have a breakthrough or experience a renewed interest with business, money, or belongings. Instead, you enjoy boosting a talent, or you feel more confident with what you already have going for you. It motivates you to pursue your goals and dreams.
