Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your partnership sector for over two days, dear Aries, putting you in a more social frame of mind than you have been. Even so, the day holds much promise on practical levels. It’s a great time for connecting with information or helpful people to improve your finances or sort out your practical affairs. You are also learning about your values and how much you can depend on and provide for yourself. You might review how you’re managing your resources, both material and otherwise, including your talents. You’re along a path to more independence, especially on a financial level, and a stronger feeling of security. Even with Mercury retrograde, prompting you to look to the past and fix problem areas, energies today are forward-looking and confidence-building. You could be a leader along business lines, or you could discover a valuable resource you hadn’t noticed before.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your work and health sector, dear Taurus, and you’re focusing on ironing out the kinks and attending to the details. With the North Node in your sign this year, you’re learning about your independence and personal courage. Overcoming any existing fears of trusting your own instincts, or going it alone, may not always be straightforward, but it’s rewarding work. You might make connections, whether through a person, information, or a sudden realization, that nudge you in the right direction. This is a time for developing and nurturing your independent spirit. Transits today pull up a sense of pride in yourself and where you’re heading. What you need to put behind you becomes apparent, as it’s holding you back from being free and independent. You recognize opportunities where you may not have seen them before.
GeminiThe Moon moves into your romance and creative sector for over two days, dear Gemini, and you readily find the inspiration to share your ideas and creations. Even so, your attention frequently turns to faith, the past, your deeper feelings, and private time. You’re seeking a better balance inside and out, and transits today point you in the direction of growth and improvement. You’re learning to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt or put your faith in a larger plan. You may be healing, letting go, and forgiving something from the past in the process. Something inspires you to move past a tricky matter.
CancerWith the Moon’s move into your home and family sector, dear Cancer, you gravitate to easygoing or familiar activities. You prefer to avoid complications at this time of the lunar month. Even so, today’s energies also encourage you to reach out and connect. These days, many of your valuable life lessons involve friendships, networks, and group connections. Today, situations nudge you to learn, grow, and improve. It’s a time to strengthen your relationship with your community and the quality of your life. You’re paying more attention to your dreams and wishes, happiness goals, and social aspirations, and it’s a beneficial focus.
LeoYou seem to gravitate towards information, people, or situations that encourage you to grow, rise to a challenge, and elevate your goals today, dear Leo. With Mercury retrograde, you could often look to the past for answers, but you have a strong sense of the future and what you’d like to make of it right now. There are potentially significant developments in your professional life or with your status, responsibilities, or reputation. You are encouraged to think about long-term goals and plans, and having this strong sense of the future and what you’d like to make of it is essential to your general happiness right now. You’re also motivated to meet your responsibilities and take charge with confidence.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your practical solar second house today, dear Virgo. While you tend to focus on your immediate needs, the Sun aligning with the Moon’s North Node stimulates the need to put old habits behind you. Positive shifts are occurring now, and you are more willing than usual to let go of things that have kept you from exploring new subjects or places. You might more openly share your thoughts and experiences or reconnect with subjects that excited you in the past. It’s a time to break out of past patterns, yet Mercury’s retrograde also encourages you to take care of unfinished business.
LibraA central theme in your life these days is the need for internal change, dear Libra, with the North Node of the Moon in your solar eighth house. As the Sun heads into alignment with this point today, you’re identifying strongly with this energy. You might connect with the right resources or tools to feel more personally empowered. You have a take-charge attitude perhaps to get rid of a bad habit or dependency. It’s helpful for you to recognize your attachments now and examine what or who you may be holding onto that is keeping you from feeling personally powerful. The Moon heads into your sign today, and for over two days, there’s a more vital focus on your emotional needs and wants.
ScorpioWith the Moon moving into the sign just behind yours, dear Scorpio, you crave and need down time. Still, relationships are again in strong focus today, and it’s a positive period for progressing and moving forward. There may be experiences now that alert you to the need to learn, grow, and improve. It’s an important time for discovering relationship needs and exploring how they impact your sense of independence. Strong forces are challenging you to move out of your comfort zone so that you can move forward, while a focus on the past is just as vital with Mercury’s recent retrograde turn. Through partnership or cooperation with others, you’ll get to the inner balance necessary to achieve your personal goals. You’re likely to see what has held you back from sharing yourself with others in healthy ways or forming close alliances.
SagittariusIt’s a good day for finding ways to improve your work, health, habits, or routines, dear Sagittarius. Orderliness has become an empowering state for you, and paying closer attention to deadlines, details, and rules can be quite challenging but also very rewarding. Your dreams feel more realizable and within reach. Improvements may involve developing and refining routines or drawing more explicit boundaries that separate work and rest to your benefit. While you’re looking forward to a brighter future, you are also looking to the past for answers and solutions. You are a little braver, more willing to go out on a limb in order to move something forward.
CapricornThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart for a stay of over two days, dear Capricorn, reminding you of your broader goals. Although Mercury is retrograde and you are experiencing some level of reserve, a Sun-Node transit encourages you to take some creative risks and express yourself more spontaneously. You may be making the right connections to further your growth in this regard. You can connect with the right tools to grow, improve, and learn. Taking charge of your need for satisfying channels for enjoyment and self-expression can figure strongly now. Finding ways to let off steam and detox is beneficial at this time.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your sector of spirit for over two days, dear Aquarius, and you’re looking to feed your soul with new experiences and knowledge. The ordinary is not very appealing right now, and a Sun-Node alignment is another reason to want to improve, grow, and learn. At the same time, a central theme in your life is about developing your sense of security, attachments to family, and home life. You have an open mind and an open heart right now so that new information coming in can expand your perspective. There is more faith in your emotional life and the ability to grow through your experiences.
PiscesEven with Mercury retrograde, mental energy and enthusiasm run high now, dear Pisces. Improving and refining your communications, projects, and knowledge are especially important to you this year. Today, your popularity can soar primarily surrounding your ideas, skills, and knowledge or the wonderful manner in which you communicate and connect. It’s a time to slow down enough to sensitize yourself more carefully to what others need and want. You’re making connections with people and information that further your learning and networking opportunities, and there can be some nice gems to be found by going over, reviewing, and editing old projects. Today’s transits can serve as a gentle push forward.
