Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is strong for business as well as most things private, emotional, or behind the scenes, dear Aries. You tend to go with the flow and enjoy the process! You may want to act on a deep desire or a dream, and you can successfully take action on a private matter. Helping others can also be satisfying now. Because your intuition and imagination are in stronger focus, you might flesh out a project already in progress with fancy flourishes and details. Private time is helpful today, even though you are also very geared to getting work done. If you have a hunch, it’s probably correct, particularly if it relates to business and money matters today. Some form of release from recent pressures can come now. Later today, you’ll benefit from ordering your thoughts, however, which helps you feel less overwhelmed, cluttered, or scattered. A practical Mercury-Saturn transit puts you in better shape for focusing on the details rather than the bigger picture. You have a good sense of which of your plans is most feasible. Still, on this day before a New Moon, it’s best to wind things down rather than rev them up.
TaurusYour desire for more independence and spontaneity is growing, dear Taurus, and today, there can be a learning breakthrough or a satisfying resolution to a problem. The Sun in your sign harmonizes with Neptune, opening your heart and mind to new possibilities. This aspect encourages looking at things and people for their beauty rather than their flaws. Dreams and ideals assume particular importance to you today, and helping others can be rewarding. As the day advances, you’re in a stronger position to pay more attention to the details or practical angle of things. Organizing or researching work can be attractive. A new level of respect or reliability in a relationship can be achieved now. But on this day before a New Moon, take some moments to reflect on what kind of changes or fresh starts you might make next week.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Neptune sextile encourages relaxation, retreat, and imagination, dear Gemini. The creative side of your projects holds more appeal than usual, and you’re particularly good at seeing magic in your pursuits or bringing magic to your ventures. There could be substantial support from behind the scenes or from an unexpected source. Warm feelings about a secret or private matter could instead figure strongly today. Your imagination tends to take you to the right places! People are noticing you for your kindness. As the day advances, a more orderly approach comes naturally. Dealing with responsibilities rather than hiding from them can, in fact, be quite satisfying now.
CancerToday’s Sun-Neptune aspect helps you rest your brain, dear Cancer, and could inspire you to dream and imagine wonderful possibilities. Look for refreshing changes in scenery or activities that promote emotional refreshment. Friendships might develop, or you could connect with interesting people and ideas. There is more faith in your friendships, and it’s building. It may be that you need to forgive or get over a hump and reconnect with someone before feeling that you can truly move forward. Later today, your mindset tends to change as you seek more grounded or concrete answers. You might find real, reliable solutions to problems. But with the New Moon occurring tomorrow, it’s better not to set things in stone today. A New Moon can easily redirect you, and taking stock is better than starting fresh today.
LeoToday’s transits stir your imagination and faith, dear Leo, and motivation can return to work on plans already set in motion. Research and development are highly favored with a Sun-Neptune connection. You tend to shine as a leader now, and you seem to have others’ backing for most if not all of your goals. You are considering the more imaginative or spiritual side to long-term goals and career projects or your career path in general. There can be much enjoyment in the feelings of dedication and a more substantial commitment to working through whatever difficulties may come your way. Your hunches are on the mark right now. Later today, you might get some solid work done or sort through a matter that was previously frustrating or disorganized.
VirgoYour compassion for others is pronounced today, dear Virgo, as the Sun and Neptune harmonize. You could have the opportunity to support someone who needs your mental, physical, or spiritual help. It’s also a fine time for creative activities. Patience and a feeling of connectedness with others can be in focus. Something inspiring can lift your spirits and improve your outlook. Feeling on the same page with someone or understood can have the same effect. You may feel renewed by a new perspective on your life. As the day advances, you seek facts and figures more and more, and problem-solving can come into strong focus. You’re in great shape for dissecting and digging for answers, which can be incredibly satisfying and beneficial. On this day before a New Moon, however, it’s better not to lock something down, as a New Moon has a way of redirecting your focus.
LibraA connection between Sun and Neptune adds creative flair and a nice touch of imagination to the day, dear Libra. This transit suits the energy of the day before a New Moon, encouraging some reflection. It also helps you to “go with the flow” rather than rush or push things. There can be intuitive hunches that lead you to the correct information and creative ways to improve your work or health. Supporting others or self-improvement efforts can be rewarding now. You might have useful hunches or insights into your work, health, and possibly an intimate relationship. Later today, quiet study or research can turn up the answers you need, and perhaps some great rewards.
ScorpioAn easygoing aspect between the Sun and Neptune builds your faith that things will unfold as they should, dear Scorpio, which can help you to relax and open your heart. This process can be most helpful on this day before a New Moon, when reflection is ideal. There can be greater understanding and acceptance in a relationship now. Connecting with others can lead to attractive opportunities, and creative efforts are particularly successful. This is a good time to inject some whimsy, imagination, and possibly compassion into a relationship. Creative movement can be healing, and so can making connections. Later today, you’re interested in long-term results. You might successfully talk through a problem or devise a strategy with someone. At the same time, it’s not yet the time to lock something down.
SagittariusThis is a strong day for attending to practical affairs with extra imagination and a strong dose of intuition, dear Sagittarius. Even so, it’s a time to slow down long enough to contemplate recent events and your own feelings. Not only is there a Sun-Neptune transit reminding you of the value of attention to your ideals and dreams, but it’s also the day before a New Moon, when reflection is generally favored over action. If you have been working hard or going through quick changes in your life, this is a time for more relaxation and rest. Assimilate, disengage, and process. You can have romantic feelings in connection to the past. A philanthropic or creative activity can be especially useful for letting loose your gentler, contemplative side. Peace, beauty, and harmony in the home can be therapeutic for you.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Neptune transit helps relax you, dear Capricorn, as it fills you with faith and patience to let life unfold before you rather than attempt to push it along when it’s not ready to move! This comes at a good time–on the day before a New Moon, when reflection is helpful. It’s a time of creative or emotional inspiration or of writing and bringing more imagination to your work or projects. You are more confident and courageous about expressing your imaginative side. This can be a good time for ideas for new methods or approaches to your hobbies, leisure time, and relationships. You might benefit from word of mouth, and you can be especially successful at promotional or marketing work. Thinking in the long-term rather than about immediate rewards helps you later today, with Mercury approaching a harmonious aspect with Saturn.
AquariusToday’s Sun-Neptune aspect supports your faith and vision, dear Aquarius, making it natural to relax and go with the flow. It can be a fabulous time to focus on activities that produce spiritual rewards. It can also be a fine day for tapping into your intuition and coming up with solutions that benefit your finances, family, home life, and sense of security or safety. This process comes at a great time on this day before a New Moon in your home sector. You have subtle but important opportunities for enhancing your family experiences and finding peace with your past. Money or resources for improving family life or for the home may be available now. Later today, focusing on family or a practical project can relieve stress, particularly if you cut out distractions and concentrate on one thing at a time, one step at a time.
PiscesYou may feel driven to share a vision or idea with someone you care about, dear Pisces, or to write about your dreams and perceptions. There is less ambition when it comes to the material or practical world and more interest in the spiritual or emotional dimensions of your life. The world of your imagination, or of art or mystery, holds the most appeal right now with a Sun-Neptune transit. Your finer qualities and inner strength shine through for others to see today. Your warmth and compassion are highlighted, but there is some aloofness to your manner right now, perhaps because you’re often found lost in thought. On this day before a New Moon, doing some reflection makes sense.
