Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Aries, encouraging you to take things easy and keep a low profile. With Mercury’s station today, it’s an opportune time for emotional recharge or for taking a light schedule. While the end of Mercury’s retrograde can come as sweet relief, watch for a bit of chaos or misunderstandings today as the shift occurs. In the days ahead, more transparent communications are likely, information comes through, or previously delayed initiatives move forward. With Mercury in your solar second house, this may very well be about money, personal possessions, or business. You’ll feel better equipped to advance your plans and make informed decisions. Today and tomorrow require extra care with what you’re communicating, making purchases, and dealing with instructions as the shift occurs. Once you adjust to the change of direction and deal with various problems, this influence is excellent for improved clarity and unblocking areas that fell off the radar or stalled in recent weeks. Keep in mind that it’s not easy to be objective just for the time being.
TaurusMercury’s retrograde ends today, dear Taurus, helping to release blocks or delays. The shift itself occurring now can be on the confusing side, so take your time. In the coming days, you’ll benefit from a more straightforward approach to life but observe and process before jumping into decisions. Delays will lift, and periods of limbo should end as information or a new perspective emerges. Still, ease into moving your plans ahead for the best results. The Moon is in your friendship sector all day, encouraging you to seek like-minded people or friends who accept you for who you are. Relationships tend to fare well, particularly with patience. Wait, however, for making significant commitments.
GeminiThe Moon is in your sector of reputation, status, and career all day, dear Gemini, and you quite readily take the lead, preferring to get your responsibilities out of the way. But while you may want firm answers or structures with this transit, there are some confusing elements to the day. Aim to learn from frustrations emerging now as Mercury stations direct today, and you should have many opportunities to improve conditions going forward. Today, with the shift occurring, choose your words carefully–and your battles! You should probably avoid focusing on what’s said–or not said–due to general confusion. Delays lift in the coming days and weeks, and word comes through.
CancerMercury has been retrograde for over three weeks, and is now turning direct, dear Cancer. You’ll see some forward movement in those relationships and endeavors that have encountered delays or blocks in previous weeks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness will clear in the days and weeks ahead. For now, take special care in your interactions and consider that you may be missing important details. For best results, treat today and tomorrow as transition days. Communications can remain confusing as Mercury changes direction, and perhaps even more so. It’s not an ideal time to bring up sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating, and in some cases, wholly unnecessary. Mercury’s forward turn in your social sector promises more clarity and understanding with friends.
LeoMercury turns direct today after over three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Leo. But while this means an imminent clearing of obstacles and delays, the day itself is a shift day and can be confusing in spots! Plans and communications can be convoluted. Still, Mercury’s direct turn can have the effect of unblocking projects and endeavors that have encountered delays in recent weeks. Work projects will advance, and communications will open up, particularly with associates, bosses, parents, or managers. You’ll feel the fog lifting in the coming days, and you’ll likely become more precise or clear about your goals. Career matters tend to resume or pick up speed.
VirgoYou may need to deal with communication or transportation breakdowns today, dear Virgo, but while these things have been more frequent in the past three weeks, most problems will begin to clear up shortly. Mercury stations and turns direct after retrograde motion since April 21st, and there can be a real sense of moving forward, but you need to correct past mistakes and omissions to clear the path. Be a little more mindful of communications, as misunderstandings are likely as this shift happens, after which information should get through that helps decision-making. A turnaround is likely for some of your projects, particularly publishing, sharing, legal, or educational matters. It’s best not to rush to put your plans into motion just yet, and helping you with this mission is a Moon-Neptune alignment and a Mars-Neptune transit that encourages going with the flow. Concentrating on the bigger picture can bring much joy.
LibraCommunication can be tricky today, dear Libra, but it’s temporary and brief. In fact, Mercury turns direct after over three weeks of retrograde motion, which can be good news for financial and intimate matters as more clarity is likely to come to these areas of your life from now on. With today’s shift, it’s important to be mindful of directions and communications. Once you’ve acclimatized to the shift, you should see recent blocks and slowdowns clearing as blanks fill on some issues in the coming days and weeks. You’ll be in good shape for negotiating about money or time-sharing.
ScorpioMercury is shifting direction after over three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Scorpio. While this move helps clear information clogs, the shift itself can demand some reorienting today. Look forward to increased clarity, particularly in your relationships, as Mercury slowly regains its regular speed, and you feel more confident about making the right decisions in the days ahead. For now, consider taking special care in your interactions, as you may be missing important details. Don’t jump too quickly into action just yet! Instead, allow new information to trickle in. Helping you take your time is a Moon-Neptune alignment and an impending Mars-Neptune trine. These influences help you connect with your intuition.
SagittariusToday’s energies can be frustrating if you’re attempting to push forward plans, mainly related to work or health, dear Sagittarius, but a shift happening now points to these things unblocking. The key is to be patient a little while longer. Mercury ends its retrograde today, helping to unclog information. While work and health matters are set to iron out and become clearer in the coming days and weeks, today and tomorrow require some vigilance with your attention to details today. You may have dealt with delays, or you’ve been waiting on information in recent weeks, but things should begin to turn around. Today’s Moon transit points to the need for some rest, relaxation, or special attention to your personal life.
CapricornToday’s Moon transit stirs your curiosity, dear Capricorn. While blocks of communication or mechanical breakdowns and misunderstandings may have prevented communications from promptly and efficiently getting through recently, Mercury changes direction and ends its retrograde cycle today. Over the coming days and weeks, you might return to previous conversations that were confusing or getting nowhere, now with increased clarity. It’s time to come at problems from a new angle! Further information emerges, and this releases energy to flow forward. You may be reconsidering a goal or dealing with something you overlooked to clear the path for moving on. It’s not a time for quick or bold moves in the interim. You’ll be in good shape if you treat misunderstandings or slowdowns as a chance to catch your breath and refine your goals. Recent plans may not seem as necessary as they once did, but the projects that genuinely matter will move forward with you.
AquariusMercury stations and turns direct today, and while this change of direction brings less indecision going forward, today can be a little confusing, dear Aquarius. There can be improved communications and more information that helps you move forward. Over the coming days and weeks, you’ll find life easier to navigate as projects or appointments progress and motivation increases. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Keep things simple for best results as this shift occurs today, and take your time! Helping you with this is a Moon-Neptune alignment and Mars-Neptune trine in the pipeline. You’re intuitive and observant.
PiscesMercury turns direct today after a retrograde phase since April 21st, dear Pisces. It’s good news, but because it’s a shift of direction, there can be some temporary disorientation. While it’s best not to jump into action, new launches, or major decisions, you’ll enjoy some forward motion on delayed projects in the coming days and weeks. Further information can arrive that facilitates decision-making. Aim to work on activities that help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress. For now, the Moon in your sign helps lift you up above the minor confusion. It’s easier to connect you with your intuition.
