Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe desire for freedom from restrictions is strong for you today, dear Aries. It’s best to watch for impulsive actions but also listen to a restless urge for change. Distinguish between making changes for the sake of change and making changes that will truly move you forward. Watch also for overspending or impatience financially, physically, and emotionally. If you keep rebelliousness in check, you can certainly enjoy entertaining new ideas and possibilities. Resolve to be flexible and allow for errors so that you make the best of the day. You can feel pleasantly busy, although it can be difficult to focus or concentrate at times.
TaurusActions today can be impulsive, dear Taurus. If driven by a desire to rid yourself of certain unpleasant elements of the past, consider that a better solution may be to face the consequences of your past actions and work on ridding yourself of guilt. It can be tempting to lean into a quick fix, but it’s unlikely to work in your favor. It may not be easy to focus or concentrate temporarily, but you can certainly get some things done. You may decide to honor your need for a change of scene, then return to the task. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, and you’re tuning into a need to release tension and detox. Strategizing about how to improve your moments of downtime can produce excellent results today.
GeminiYou could find yourself more sensitive to issues of personal freedom from restrictions today, dear Gemini, as Jupiter and Uranus connect. Watch today for some impatience with others. Unsettled matters from the past may surface unexpectedly or indirectly. It’s best to identify the reasons you could be feeling restless, but avoid letting unrest rule your decisions and behavior now. You may be better off keeping things even and smooth so that you’re not at a disadvantage later. Willingness to go deep and to be emotionally brave can improve a bond.
CancerYou are not inclined to enjoy being caged in right now, dear Cancer, but neither are you happy with what feels like neglect when given the freedom to do your own thing. You can feel some restlessness, and it’s best to avoid being impulsive or impatient. Even so, it’s a good idea to recognize your need to make changes while resolving to think before acting. People can be unreliable or rebellious today, or they may be simply out of the loop. Avoid taking on too much, particularly in your career, but work on ways to improve your efficiency. Fortunately, you might gain someone’s support or backing for work or life-path goals, and this feels good. It’s nice when others understand your ambitions or plans.
LeoThe need for freedom from restrictions is strong today, dear Leo, but opportunities to move forward in your career also require some attention to detail. You are indeed moving toward greater freedom of expression when it comes to your work and public image, but be sure to avoid trying to force it due to impatience. Disagreements today can stem from a sense that your ideals conflict with your goals. Some discontent is possible now as there can be some things left up in the air. Consider that you may be taking on a lot and dividing yourself to the point of distraction now, and it’s a good idea to find ways to center yourself. Look for ways to unburden and unload rather than take on new ventures now.
VirgoYou can experience an impulsive streak, dear Virgo. If you’ve suppressed yourself, impatience with this situation can come on quite suddenly this week. Unexpected events can occur that nudge you along a different path. Be aware that something in the way you express yourself can upset the status quo right now. It may be best to be more cautious for now rather than jump into something new. Life feels a little unpredictable as Jupiter and Uranus form a minor challenging aspect. Tensions in close relationships can be about opinions and beliefs. People may want more without knowing what that “more” is or seek happiness outside of themselves. Aim to explore reasons for restlessness rather than let it drive you. The Moon spends the day in your sign, adding more color to your emotional world.
LibraIt can be challenging to rely on others today, dear Libra, and especially a partner or close friend, whose desire for freedom, or impatience, can certainly produce some waves in your own life right now. Someone’s assertion of independence can take you off guard. Instead, this energy can play out as a general need for change and improvement in your relationships. Tired old ways of relating can be more frustrating or glaring than usual. Financial news may be surprising. While some confusing shifts can be happening now, it’s also a time for exciting new ideas and visions. Aspects of yourself that are interfering with your progress may come to light through your interactions, and this may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but if you aim to learn from these experiences, you’re in a great position.
ScorpioYou can feel some boredom with ordinary or routine matters today, dear Scorpio, yet a desire to take care of these things. You’ll need to get creative to fill your need for excitement as you handle mundane affairs. Take the initiative to change the scene. Try not to jump into an impulsive decision, however. You are certainly in the mood for a change, but ask yourself if what you’re looking for can be achieved free of charge. Work routines can be changing and possibly frustrating now as you attempt to adjust. Friends may not be as helpful as you’d like today. It can be a time of divided interests, but while it can be a challenge to find a state of peacefulness with this atmosphere, it’s not impossible.
SagittariusMinor disruptions or unexpected changes are standard fare today, dear Sagittarius, with your planetary ruler, Jupiter, in minor challenging aspect to Uranus. Surprises or unusual feelings on romantic or creative levels can figure strongly. The regular, usual routine is likely to change, and underlying this is your inner need for excitement and freedom from restrictions. Avoid an abrupt, impatient, or defensive manner for best results. It’s best that the changes you make now are small ones — simple adjustments that allow you room to breathe. Remaining flexible makes sense, and watch for overreaching or taking on more than you can reasonably handle. Optimism is great, but piling on more when you’re feeling fabulous can come back to haunt you when your energies are low.
CapricornChanges in your domestic situation or inner world are possible with a Jupiter-Uranus aspect, dear Capricorn, although you may only feel caged in and desirous of change. Feeling unsettled or insecure is possible if thrust into a situation where you feel inexperienced today. Be wary of giving off mixed signals and aim for self-understanding. It makes sense to recognize your need for a change of pace so that you’re in control. Patience can be hard to muster up but will serve you best. The Moon spends the day in your sector of the higher mind, and you’re tuning into the need for mental refreshment.
AquariusConversations and communications can be tricky today, dear Aquarius, and misunderstandings are possible. You might decide to change up your routines in small ways so that you satisfy a need for something new and different. A subtle urge to shake things up or a desire for emotional stimulation can be present. Although you may want to give a personal project or endeavor your all, a call to share or collaborate can interrupt your efforts. The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, and you pay more attention to your deeper feelings.
PiscesFor now, it’s best to avoid jumping into new projects, particularly money-making ones, dear Pisces. Money matters may be tricky, and while you could be itching to change your situation, risky moves are not advised for the moment. Have faith in your ability to better manage your life, but avoid the traps of too-optimistic thinking, which can put you in a state that has your blinders on. It’s better to experiment with different approaches and ideas but not tie yourself down to them just yet. Connecting with someone through similar values can be satisfying and reinforcing.
