Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can have a strong need to be productive today, dear Aries, although your focus is less on practical pursuits than it is on happiness goals. The Moon moves into your social sector for a couple of days. The major key to emotional fulfillment right now may be to focus on wishes and dreams dear to your heart. You may discover that common goals, interests, and philosophies are more apparent, or you appreciate them more. Today, people tend to be a little more reliable than usual, and you generally have your priorities straight. Even so, a minor challenging aspect involving communications ruler, Mercury, can point to some misunderstandings or doubts.
TaurusYou can feel more directed and purposeful than usual today, dear Taurus. Your responsibilities and performance are high on your list of interests as the Moon heads into your solar tenth house, meeting Saturn there. You can feel a strong need to manage a situation or put more energy into your practical priorities. People seem to follow your lead quite naturally today. Resourcefulness helps you advance towards your objectives. Your business instincts or sense of what’s most valuable and worth your time are strong. Later today, words exchanged are imperfect. While it may be best to choose topics of conversation carefully, self-directed activities can be most successful. Putting certain decisions on hold may be beneficial.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your sector of spirit, the higher mind, and sharing ideas, dear Gemini, where it will stay for a couple of days. This transit can stir a craving for engaging experiences and a break from the routine or a change of scenery. Today, the Moon meets with Saturn in this sector, and there could be a block, responsibility, or obligation to deal with before moving forward. Alternatively, you might enjoy some serious learning, studying, sharing, or thinking. You can feel quite ambitious to improve your situation. Later today, there could be a difference in opinion that sticks with you and frustrates you, or you could feel uncertain about a matter. Ultimately, these feelings can lead to an important edit or fact check that helps you.
CancerThe Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, dear Cancer. You’re inclined to take things a little more seriously than usual with this transit, and this can be particularly the case today with the Moon’s meet-up with Saturn. It brings great energy for getting to the bottom of a problem, researching or investigating, or getting into an absorbing project or activity. Dealing with a block or responsibility can lead to some important improvements. It’s a good time for piecing things together one at a time and attending to various details. Later today, there can be some sensitivity to issues that might be brewing in your private life. While ironing out these differences seems logical, you may not have the emotional bandwidth to do so, and it may be better to take a break.
LeoThe Moon heads into your opposite sign for a couple of days, dear Leo, and you can be quite focused on your relationships. It meets Saturn there, and it makes sense to fill your responsibilities. Someone might remind you of your obligations. It’s also a good day to apply yourself, especially to happiness goals or pursuits that fulfill you socially and emotionally. Negotiations are fair and prosperous. The secret to happiness today seems to be balance and patience. Your interactions with a significant other can be instructional in some manner, whether it’s a direct or indirect thing. While the day tends to favor a mature, forthright approach, a minor challenging aspect can point to some indecision or doubts that can interfere with this goal.
VirgoYou’re in the right frame of mind for attention to detail today, dear Virgo. The Moon joins with Saturn in your work and health sector, and you can feel quite compelled to take care of business. You’re not in the mood to beat around the bush, and you seem to have an emotional need to get on top of your routine or daily affairs. Still, you’re not content with the monotony of the routine, and it can be a good idea to do new things or combine play and work to keep you engaged. With your ruler, Mercury, forming a minor challenging aspect, your message may not go over perfectly. Worries can result from taking in too much information.
LibraThe Moon heads into your creativity sector for a couple of days, dear Libra. This area of your solar chart rules recreation, leisure, and the pursuit of pleasure and joy. Still, with Saturn in this sector this year, your idea of relaxation these days can be someone’s idea of hard work. You’re a little more structured with your downtime, and it can be beneficial. The Moon meets with responsible Saturn today, and while you may face a block or delay that keeps you from doing the things you enjoy, you’re likely attracted to spending time doing productive things, finding it soothing and satisfying to do so. You can take particular pleasure in coming up with strategies, plans, and workable solutions to problems. Later today, some indecision or self-doubt could lead to confusing communications.
ScorpioThis is a day for special attention to home and family, your support system, and personal matters, dear Scorpio. The Moon joins with Saturn in your solar fourth house today, and you’re likely to focus on the practical side of your domestic world or personal life. As you straighten out your home environment, improved inner clarity can result. Dialing things back a little makes sense now, but you’re likely to want to be productive. It’s a good time to look for opportunities to improve your sense of security and comfort, but you’re also pacing yourself, and it’s an important strategy at this time in the lunar month. There is some tendency for misunderstandings later today, but they can also help you see vulnerable areas.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into your solar sector of communication for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius. The Moon aligns with serious Saturn today, and there can be an important conversation or obligations to fill. A bit of self-discipline can go a long way, as events of the day might awaken a need to get going on something for which you’ve been procrastinating. You have a no-nonsense approach that gets results. Handling business or sorting some things out in your life comes naturally. With moderation, it can be an excellent time for pouring energy into constructive projects. Still, people can be more sensitive today with Mercury in a minor challenging aspect to Chiron, and choosing your words carefully may be in order.
CapricornYou can have a stronger than usual desire to get your practical affairs in order today, dear Capricorn. The Moon heads into your sector of resources and security for a couple of days. Today, the Moon aligns with serious Saturn, your planetary ruler, in this area of your solar chart, and paying special attention to detail or your money and personal possessions can be in focus. You’re in a strong position to take stock of what you have and what you might need. You’re thinking ahead rather than concerning yourself with immediate gratification. You have the energy to tackle problems. Later today, it may be best to choose your words carefully. Ideally, if vulnerable areas open up, it can lead you to greater compassion and understanding.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, and your emotions are on your sleeve. Today, you may have additional obligations to attend to with the Moon and Saturn joining forces. You’re a self-starter now, and you can find some good outlets for expressing yourself, particularly related to creative or recreational activities. A Mercury aspect later today can point to words that frustrate or hurt. Even so, they can reveal vulnerabilities that ultimately lead to more self-understanding.
PiscesThe Moon moves into the sign behind yours, where it will stay for a couple of days, dear Pisces. You need some extra time to yourself or simply away from the grind and regular routine. Aim to get rid of extra mental clutter for best results now. The Moon meets with Saturn today, reminding you of what’s unfinished or a current challenge. Focusing on others can be rewarding, particularly if you are helping out. Family or home life can be lively, or you feel particularly productive. You can be confused about alternatives later today, and valuable information can be missing. It’s not easy to see the bigger picture temporarily.
