Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, encouraging you to put your feelers out for new information, dear Aries. You’re inclined to spread your energy around and get involved with odds and ends rather than focusing too much on any one thing. The potential pitfall today is overreaching. Also today, Mercury enters your privacy and soul sector, where this messenger planet will transit until March 27th. This sector of your chart rules natural endings and all that is hidden, undercover, and deep. Discussions and thoughts often revolve around the past during this cycle. Discretion may benefit you during this cycle. It’s also a good time for tying up loose ends on a project or wrapping up a project.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your solar second house, drawing your attention to how you’re managing your resources, dear Taurus. Your material affairs and comforts can be in focus, and your resourcefulness can come in handy now for whatever you take on today. Mercury begins its transit of your solar eleventh house, where it will influence until March 27th, taking off some pressures to perform and improving your social skills. It can be a vital time for inventive new ideas, sharing ideas with others, and happy networking. Valuable learning experiences can result from your association with friends, associates, or groups. Contributing, connecting, and collaborating may bring rewards.
GeminiThe Moon in your sign puts you in a solid position to acknowledge unmet needs and feelings that you’ve recently kept at bay, dear Gemini. It’s a time of the lunar month for some healthy self-focus, particularly with emotions and nurture. You crave a feeling of connectedness, and others notice you more than usual. The potential pitfall of today is going over the top with this. Your planetary ruler, Mercury, moves to the top of your solar chart today, beginning a cycle that can mean adapting and adjusting in ways that benefit your career, reputation, status, or long-term goals. It’s a time for bringing more of your knowledge, expertise, and intelligence to your professional or public life. This transit lasts until March 27th and stirs goal-oriented thinking. Circumstances may be such that you have more decision-making responsibility now. Your words are also more impactful, and it makes sense to spend a little more time than usual crafting what you want to say and present to the world.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, dear Cancer, and you tend to lay low, craving some release from overstimulation. Still, Mercury moves into your solar ninth house for a stay until March 27th, and you’re thinking ahead. You’re putting recent events and ideas into perspective during this cycle. It’s a great time for big ideas that come from thinking in broad terms but not necessarily reliable for their practical implementation — that comes at a later date! There can be connections that expand your mind during this cycle. You are a little braver when expressing your opinions and sharing your ideas. You’re pleasantly challenged to think more deeply about big life questions and refine your perspective and viewpoints. You learn better through experience than through rote now. It’s a positive cycle for sharing your ideas, learning new things, and building your knowledge.
LeoThis is a time for tuning in to goals that feed your need to feel more connected with the world around you, dear Leo. Reaching out to others is one way of seeking out more emotional satisfaction, and another way involves focusing on some of the dreams and hopes dearest to your heart. Mercury begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, and until March 27th, you’ll be making plans and formulating strategies rather than jumping too quickly into action. It’s an excellent 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, and you’re very successful at this task during this cycle. It’s an active period for deeper thinking and understanding, and it’s a generally good time for intimate conversations or consultations. You may be doing some valuable research or investigation.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and you’re prioritizing your responsibilities and goals, dear Virgo. You can be eager to take on an ambitious project or take care of business but watch for overreaching. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your partnership sector, and until March 27th, you’ll be in great shape for healthier communication and negotiations. You’re more likely to consult with others, discuss ideas and plans, and seek feedback in the weeks ahead. You gravitate to people who stimulate your thinking or offer you a different perspective. It can be a wonderful time for a collaboration of sorts.
LibraToday’s transits are good for stretching your imagination and participating in activities that feed your mind and your spirit, dear Libra. As well, Mercury moves into your solar sixth house, increasing your interest in (and attention to) details, work, health, and problem-solving in the weeks ahead. Small jobs and duties are in stronger focus during this transit that will continue until March 27th. You’re likely to discover useful information about work and health methods and learn new and improved ways of organizing your life. Specialized disciplines can thrive now. Favored now are activities that get your life and your mind tidy and organized. Watch for a tendency to over-analyze and criticize during this cycle.
ScorpioYou can be a little more protective of your plans and feelings today, dear Scorpio, with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day. However, Mercury begins its transit of an outgoing, creative area of your solar chart. Until March 27th, Mercury’s transit sparks up your creative side, particularly on a mental level. You’re in a good position 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. Attractions can be more intellectual during this cycle, or you draw in people through your intelligence and wit. There is a more natural flow of communication and a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity in the weeks ahead.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and what others stir in you can be particularly important to you right now, dear Sagittarius. Mercury begins its transit of your home and family sector today, and you’re likely to enjoy some revealing and warm conversations in the weeks ahead. Sometimes this transit means 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 in this cycle that lasts until March 27th. You seek special moments or patches of rest and a break from overthinking and overdoing. For the most part, you’re preoccupied with personal and domestic matters.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your sector of habits and routines, dear Capricorn, kindling a real need to set things straight. Things left unfinished or cluttered can appear glaring to you now. As well, your desire to work, perform, serve, and otherwise make yourself useful comes to the fore. Intelligent, curious Mercury begins its transit of your communications sector today, sharpening and enhancing your ability to process information quickly and effectively until March 27th. You are likely to be quite busy during this cycle, coming up with new ideas, making contact with others, and learning an assortment of new things. You thoroughly enjoy both taking in information and relaying it. There can be times when 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 this cycle of information-gathering and improved connections.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your creative solar fifth house, dear Aquarius, stirring your desires for personal enjoyment and fulfillment through hobbies, pastimes, romance, or entertainment. Mercury moves into your personal resources sector today, where it will transit until March 27th. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be putting some of your ideas and enterprises into action or adding the details to plans. You can be skilled at getting to the bottom line–you’re not as interested in the extras, preferring to keep things simple during this cycle. When stressed, there can be some worry or overstimulation related to money, possessions, and resources. Otherwise, it’s a great time to consider improvements and organize your finances.
PiscesThis can be a strong day for self-renewal through familiar activities, retreat, or nesting, dear Pisces. You are more likely to show your affection for the people and things that you most count on. Mercury heads into your sign today, where it will stay until March 27th. It’s one of the more communicative phases of your year. It’s a time when you’re not only reaching out more often, but you’re also communicating with more impact. You might prefer to take the lead in mental tasks and make executive decisions. With Mercury in your corner, you can enjoy more alertness and a greater ability to talk about your plans.
