Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou gravitate to experiences and activities that help you understand yourself and important people in your life today, dear Aries. It’s particularly helpful if you’ve recently been living your life in auto-pilot mode. Deeper self-knowledge can help you immensely with an eclipse tomorrow, which can sometimes find us acting out rather than taking mindful action. A Sun-Mars transit today can stir some restlessness, however. Aim not to take on more than you can reasonably manage. It’s better to employ some strategy rather than leap ahead blindly. While you might disagree with someone about money or values, conflicts now are more minor distractions than reflective of something deeper and best treated as such.
TaurusThe emotional focus can be on others today, dear Taurus, and especially close relationships or partnerships. Today’s Moon stimulates some sensitivity to those things in your life that feel out of balance. You’re inclined to turn to others for help, support, or advice, but it’s important to take ownership of any decision that comes out of the process. Adjustments necessary in a relationship are easier to make today, as you’re less likely to resist. Even if changes made in your interactions are subtle, they count towards making improvements. A Sun-Mars minor challenging aspect does introduce some impatient or irritable energy, however. Distractions can take you away from yourself and introduce some unexpected detours. Nevertheless, there could be a mystery to unveil, an interesting problem to solve, or simply some absorbing research to do that keeps you happily occupied. You can learn something of real value in the process.
GeminiYou can be motivated to handle details, deal with practical affairs, and get some work done today, dear Gemini. Instead of dwelling on flaws, which you see more clearly right now, it’s better to make good use of your time by fixing problems. You have an eye for what needs to change to make your daily life more efficient and fulfilling. Keep yourself busy for best results today, but do keep in mind that a Sun-Mars transit today and an eclipse occurring tomorrow can lend an impatient air to your life now. Whatever you put out there today can blow up bigger than usual. As such, it’s best to hold off on impulses to speak or act impatiently.
CancerWhile your busy solar twelfth house points to strong energy for your inner world, emotions, and intimate connections, dear Cancer, this is a day for remembering to have fun, play, entertain, be entertained, and get creative. Look for ways to satisfy your urge for activities that are unusual or non-routine. Some variations of your typical schedule can be emotionally refreshing. While impatience or impulsiveness can distract you, it’s best to avoid giving in to the feeling you need to rush to succeed. Without a focus, you can feel a little restless and possibly even aggravated at times today. With a mission in mind, you can move mountains.
LeoYou tend to stick with regular routines or stay closer to home today, dear Leo. You could be more introspective most of the day. There is very sociable energy with you on the horizon, but today is better for regrouping, renewing, and relaxing. Aim to center yourself before tomorrow’s eclipse. This morning’s Sun-Mars transit is not ideal for this task, as it gives off impatient energy. Try not to give in to the idea that you need to do something quickly to succeed. It’s unlikely the case. Your need for security and comfort is more pronounced today. Look within and to your support system for what you need today.
VirgoIf there have been competitive or difficult energies with friends or in your social life recently, dear Virgo, they might emerge today as the Sun and Mars form a minor challenging aspect. Ideally, it can help you clear the air, but do keep in mind that an eclipse will occur tomorrow, and whatever you do put “out there” at this time can blow out of proportion. There can be a small battle going on within you about whether to play it safe or take a little risk. This can lead to a feeling of restlessness as you toy with a desire for something out of the ordinary. Try to dream up ways to satisfy both your freedom-seeking side and your equally strong need to keep things simple and familiar.
LibraThere can be some impatience experienced today, dear Libra, and it’s best to avoid taking shortcuts, as tempting as they may be. You’re likely to feel more sociable and less focused on work and responsibilities today, but it’s better not to rely too heavily on others just for the time being, as it may mean you absorb too much tension. Watch the words you choose to express yourself for good measure. This is a day to turn your attention to those things that make you feel most comfortable and take special care of them. Establish your needs and wants, and explore ways to satisfy them now for best results. Aim to center yourself.
ScorpioIt’s a little too easy to become irritable today, dear Scorpio. You could be running on a short fuse in the first half of the day so that even minor differences lead to big ones. Aim to avoid making assumptions prematurely for the best results. Taming restlessness can go a long way towards having a good day, with the Moon in your sign connecting well with Mars, Neptune, and Pluto. Creative or romantic pursuits can be enriching. You are a little braver than usual, particularly for entertaining new concepts and ideas, for expressing your feelings or opinions, and for believing in someone or something.
SagittariusThere is some tendency to scatter your energy, dear Sagittarius, and to spin your wheels. However, if you can focus, this can be a good time for fearlessly facing inner demons that may have prevented you from chasing your dreams in the past. It can be an animated and sensitive period for issues of sharing and intimacy. Taking a step back from the world a little with the Moon spending much of the day in your privacy sector is appropriate. It’s best to catch your breath, particularly with an eclipse occurring tomorrow in your own sign. Do what you can to take some time out to recharge emotionally. While helping out others can feed a need and make you feel proud of yourself, too much can wear you down, so aim to find a balance.
CapricornThe lines are open for communications today, dear Capricorn. Distractions are likely, so avoid attempting to force concentration if it’s not happening naturally. The pace can be pleasantly quick and busy. Multi-tasking is fine for you right now, and it might even benefit you, but watch for only spinning your wheels in the first half of the day. With a bit of focus, you get the chance to bring spirit to your interactions and communications. Getting in touch with what’s in your heart can be helpful, particularly with an eclipse occurring tomorrow in your privacy sector. Open up to your intuition for best results as the day advances.
AquariusWith so much activity in your solar fifth house of entertainment these days, dear Aquarius, there can be many new and exciting developments in your life. However, it makes sense to center yourself today for the sake of clarity and calm. There is good energy for work and focusing on your goals and priorities, but you may need to navigate a somewhat chaotic atmosphere. Distractions can be plenty, and with an eclipse happening tomorrow and stirring up a bit of unrest, it might not always be easy to hear yourself think. Many problems in life can come from hanging on to things or attitudes out of pure habit, and this eclipse can help you see where changes can help you.
PiscesThere can be moments today that try your patience, dear Pisces, particularly when it comes to your personal life, family, or domestic concerns. The trick is to avoid jumping to conclusions. Getting in touch with what you may be lacking that’s causing inner restlessness is the first step to conquering impulsiveness and impatience. With ego issues under control, it’s easier to put progress and self-improvement at the top of your list. It’s also important to feed your need for movement, growth, and variety, but do your best to keep these things moderate enough that it’s not chaotic or hectic.
s of major long-term projects, but returning to complete old projects can be rewarding.
