Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt’s a great time to lay down some rules and set some structures or goals that strengthen you and your loved ones in fundamental ways, dear Aries. Clearing up unfinished emotional business can also be satisfying. Gestures that show others you care can be remembered and appreciated today–they have more staying power than usual! You see the value of planning, stretching out the good things so they last longer, and exercising patience. Forgoing a pleasure now seems worth it if it’s practical and promises greater benefits later. The Moon moves into the sign behind yours today, where it will stay for a couple of days, and you need some extra time to yourself or simply away from the grind and routine. Aim to get rid of extra mental clutter for the best results now. The Moon meets with Saturn today, reminding you of what’s unfinished or a current challenge.
TaurusOthers value you for your contributions and dedication today, dear Taurus. Following a few rules helps clear your conscience and can benefit your communications or studies. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback today. Something you do now is likely to have staying power, staying longer in others’ memories. It’s a good time to put your inspiring, innovative ideas to work for you in the practical world. You can have a strong need to be productive today, although your focus is less on practical pursuits than it is on happiness goals. However, on this day before Mercury turns direct, try not to lock down a decision or conclusion.
GeminiYou’re less interested in immediate gratification and more concerned about what benefits you in the long term today, dear Gemini. Even if it means putting off personal pleasures, you are willing to do so to secure your future. Instinctively knowing your priorities is part of this, and you’re in perfect shape to enjoy good advice or support from others. Your responsibilities and performance are high on your list of interests as the Moon heads into your solar tenth house, meeting Saturn there. There can be traditional and wise information coming your way. You’re considering your priorities and relishing the prospect of doing some budgeting or planning ahead. It can be a time for reducing redundancies or otherwise simplifying your life and feeling better off for it. Certainly, putting your things in order can have a nice, comforting effect on you now. Consider that Mercury will station and turn direct tomorrow, and nothing should be locked down quite yet.
CancerYou can find it easy, straightforward, and perhaps quite rewarding to express your responsible side today, dear Cancer. You might enjoy some serious learning, studying, sharing, or thinking. Your negotiation skills are above par, and you aim to see eye to eye with others, remaining sincere and honest at the same time. Favorable reviews or solid news can figure strongly. You might establish yourself with someone special or with groups through publications or advances in your field, for example. Others are backing you up. Your reliability, experience, or wisdom are traits that people recognize in you more fully. Priorities are more apparent today, and you’re able to make a realistic assessment of your capabilities. As a result, you take on no more and no fewer endeavors than you need! It’s a powerful time to balance and moderate things to your benefit today. Still, on this day before Mercury stations, it’s better not to lock down an opinion or conclusion.
LeoTransits bring decent energy for getting to the bottom of a problem, researching or investigating, or getting into an absorbing project or activity, dear Leo. Dealing with a block or responsibility can lead to some critical improvements. You might decide to give up a personal pleasure to gain something more significant to you in the long term. Coming to someone’s aid or support might figure strongly now. You’re also in a good place for drawing upon hunches and intuition to forward business-related ideas. Getting practical things done is satisfying, and it’s easier with someone’s help or encouragement. Diplomacy and cooperation work wonders today. If a relationship can benefit from some maintenance, it’s an excellent time to show you care. At the same time, it’s best to keep in mind that Mercury is about to station, and it’s not quite yet the time to lock something down.
VirgoSomeone might remind you of your obligations today, dear Virgo, or you’re getting serious in a relationship. Your interactions with a significant other can be instructional in some manner, whether this happens directly or indirectly. Diplomacy goes a long way today, and you tend to sense this intuitively. You appreciate the simple things about your established relationships, and others seem to value your company or input. Bonding can be satisfying, and showing affection in practical ways can be in focus. This is a good time to connect with reliable or long-time friends and partners. You’re really feeling the need for authenticity in your connections. With Mercury turning direct tomorrow, it’s best not to draw conclusions just yet, however.
LibraThe Moon moves into your work and health sector, dear Libra, joining with Saturn there, and you can feel quite compelled to take care of business. You want to get on top of your routine or daily affairs. Fortunately, you’re more likely to enjoy your duties today, and it shows in what you do. You’re willing to give up immediate pleasures to ensure a long win, and this strategy works well for you. Shows of affection through simple gestures go over well on a personal level. There can be real benefits to considering others’ input or advice or healing rifts. While you may be in the mood to lock something down, it’s best not to take commitments lightly. Mercury’s station tomorrow means we’re in a shift period, and it’s best to wait and see.
ScorpioToday’s transits are strong for feeling safe, structured, and confident enough to explore your creativity, dear Scorpio. Your view of a creative matter, project, or relationship is more realistic and less pressured. The Moon meets Saturn in your sector of joy, and a more structured approach to your downtime or leisure activities–and even a relationship–can be beneficial. You may be dividing your time well between work and pleasure, and it can be a great time for teaching, learning, and making valuable connections. You could be working hard on something creative and expressive, adding important details, or getting technical aspects just right. Relationships seem to be supportive rather than competitive, helping you get things done. It’s best not to push too hard for answers or conclusions with Mercury still retrograde until tomorrow, however.
SagittariusToday’s transits help you look at a situation with more realism, patience, and objectivity, dear Sagittarius. The Moon joins Saturn in your solar fourth house today, and you’ll likely focus on the practical side of your domestic world or personal life. Dividing your time between work or chores and pleasure more effectively makes everything less stressful. A technique for improving your productivity may be close at hand. You may very well take pleasure in fulfilling your responsibilities, particularly to your home, personal life, family, or loved ones. You’d prefer to drop an idealized image of someone or a situation in favor of seeing things for what they truly are. This is a good time for recognizing and loving others’ flaws–and your own. Any efforts toward strengthening, maintaining, and building your connections can have long-lasting benefits. On this day before Mercury’s station, adopt a wait-and-see attitude for best results.
CapricornPrioritizing comes naturally to you today, dear Capricorn. You are gracious with your responsibilities and don’t waste time on things that distract you from the task at hand. Seeing a person in your life in a realistic light can be valuable today. You have a greater sense of your expectations, limits, and boundaries, helping you find a good balance. You might improve a relationship or help create links between others. Concentrating and focusing on something special to you can be gratifying. The Moon aligns with serious Saturn today, and there can be an important conversation or obligation to fill. A bit of self-discipline can go a long way.
AquariusPrioritizing comes more naturally to you today, both in your daily affairs and relationships, dear Aquarius. There can be opportunities to strengthen a project today, especially with a mature approach and particular attention to detail. Making a personal sacrifice to make something right or advance a goal seems very well worth the effort. Better relations on the job can ultimately help your bottom line or make you feel more secure. You might take some pleasure in being practical or frugal. The Moon’s move out of your sign today can settle your emotions–you have more patience to play with now. You might need it with Mercury’s station tomorrow and the possibility of mixed messages.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your sign early today, pulling up the need to express your feelings, dear Pisces. Still, fleeting excitement or newness is less attractive now than enjoying trusted friends, family, or pet projects. Humbling yourself a little can be most useful as this helps you recognize good advice and benefit from others’ experiences and wisdom. Saturn transiting your sign is not all about limits and blockages–you’re learning to see yourself and the world around you more realistically, and this is empowering as you reduce guilty feelings and disappointments. On this day before Mercury’s station, it’s best to reserve judgment and wait and see before locking something down.
