Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, dear Aries, it makes sense to give more substantial attention to your personal life and attend to your inner world. This transit can bring on a more reflective disposition. Mars in your home and family sector these days tends to agree–extra focus on the world of emotions and attachments seems in order. Even so, the current Venus transit excites your curiosity, and it can sometimes be challenging to relax thoroughly. People don’t necessarily know what they want today, and that can include you! It’s best to recognize your diverging needs as complicated but manageable.
TaurusToday’s energies seem to encourage you to get closer to someone, dear Taurus, and you’re inclined to negotiate and compromise as you’d rather come to an agreement than bother with challenges. Restoring balance in your life can be in focus with the Moon in your partnership sector all day. With a Venus-Mars minor aspect, people don’t seem to know what they want and can be giving off mixed signals. Fortunately, you’re very willing to negotiate, compromise, and work towards creating harmony today. With Venus in your solar second house, you want to settle in and enjoy yourself, but Mars is stirring up your desire for novelty at the same time, which can leave you feeling a bit confused or divided at times right now. Once you’ve solved this dilemma or resolved not to let it bother you, you’re more likely to enjoy the pleasant vibes for making a connection.
GeminiEmphasis is on matters of comfort and security today, dear Gemini. You’re inclined to make more adjustments than usual, and while this can sometimes stress you out, it’s crucial for bringing a better balance to your world. This day doesn’t favor a high supply of energy or motivation. Still, it is suitable for maintenance tasks and getting comfortable so that you’re better prepared and rested for busier days ahead. The Moon spends the day in your work and service sector, stimulating an emotional need to contribute and produce. Work and health matters can be in stronger focus.
CancerToday’s Moon encourages you to take a relaxed, creative approach to people and life’s circumstances, dear Cancer. However, it’s all too easy to feel divided today. With Mars in your sign and Venus in the background of your chart, it’s a good idea to watch for unintentional gruffness. This will be even more important when Mercury turns retrograde in five days. Words may not be as successful as actions to show your affection for the time being. This is not a day for good timing, in general, as rebellious feelings can distance us from our instincts or intuition.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Leo, and this brings out the desire to surround yourself with familiar people or stick with what you know just for the time being. Attention to personal matters is most appropriate now, although it can be challenging to integrate all of your needs today. While you’re in a sociable Venus cycle, Mars in your solar chart is encouraging some downtime, as is the Moon today, so that you could feel a little torn at times. However, with some special handling, you can enjoy both.
VirgoYou’re in good shape for learning, writing, studying, and making connections today, dear Virgo, although you may not always feel in step with others. You want to honor uniqueness and freedom of spirit, but you’re also focusing on some tradition and tried-and-true pursuits. While work or responsibilities can be more enjoyable than usual with Venus currently transiting your solar tenth house, Mars is encouraging you to make happiness goals a priority. You could feel you have a lot on your plate as a result! There can be some mixed signals today since it’s not always easy to read others’ needs and wants. The Moon spends the day in your communications, stimulating your curiosity and desire for movement and mental engagement.
LibraYou are especially sensitive to others’ moods today, making it relatively easy for something to upset your equilibrium, dear Libra. You may need to tune some people or information out for a while. However, with the Moon in your solar second house all day, taking care of business feels fitting and even enjoyable. If you’re feeling a bit torn today, try to get out of an “either-or” frame of mind since you may be able to combine things in such a way that you don’t feel you’re missing out. You have a stronger need to take care of what you have and own today.
ScorpioThe Moon is in your sign all day, and your emotions are in strong focus, dear Scorpio. There can be times today when you take things, people, and perhaps even yourself, a little too seriously. Otherwise, you might thoroughly enjoy exploring new personal interests or doing something you’ve always wanted to do but lacked confidence. While you are generally feeling quite confident and outgoing today, you tend to feel divided in spots, unsure if you wish to wait for someone to intuit your needs or assert yourself. Emotional needs can feel pressing.
SagittariusWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house all day, you tend to be a little more retiring than usual, dear Sagittarius. Extra time to yourself or for rest is very appropriate at this time in the lunar month. You could feel a little divided now, however, as part of you wants light and easy interactions, yet another part of you is seeking a more profound connection or deeper meaning. There is some tendency to be provocative or to see-saw between expressing patience and impatience with others. It’s better not to confuse drama with happiness–keeping things simple and appreciating that fact may be your best bet right now. Be sure to focus on your need for emotional renewal, rest, reflection, and healing.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your solar eleventh house, dear Capricorn, bringing less emphasis on performance and more interest in socializing. Concentration levels can certainly decrease. With Venus in your solar sixth house, you’re in great shape for wellness treatments or improvements and updates to your working environment. Aim to find ways to make what you do more pleasant and appealing, as there are opportunities to do so now. Today’s energies pull you strongly towards a more social focus nevertheless. It makes sense to try to combine your needs creatively rather than see-saw or choose one route but remain preoccupied with another.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your career and objectives sector, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to set goals or remind yourself of them. It’s a good checkpoint moment in the lunar month. Mars in your solar sixth house these days can similarly help motivate you to get things done. Venus, on the other hand, is encouraging a lighter approach to the world. While you could feel somewhat divided between work and play today, remind yourself that you have plenty of time to work out the right balance, and even if things aren’t entirely smooth now, you can find ways to enjoy yourself and be productive.
PiscesYou’re in a more outgoing, exploratory mood than usual with the Moon moving in harmony with your sign all day, dear Pisces. Still, there can be some moodiness and restlessness, as you are hungrier than usual for affection, but you may not be particularly satisfied with what you receive. A Venus-Mars minor aspect active today can temporarily serve to contrast your needs and wants. Avoid jumping too quickly to conclusions and even to action, and try instead to enjoy the moment. Helping you with this is a Mercury-Chiron aspect that encourages you to learn from your feelings and interactions. Distractions are plenty today, and you’ll need time to refresh yourself, after which you can enjoy the more playful elements of the day.
