Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere’s a shift in your focus today, dear Aries, from seeking to make order in your life to looking for interactive and fun activities. The Moon in your partnership sector harmonizes with Mars in your house of recreation and romance, making it a great time to enjoy good company, a crush or attraction, or an exciting game. Others have a positive influence on you, gently motivating you to take action or do something fun and interesting that you may not have felt inspired to do otherwise. You’re inclined to seek out company; others notice and seek you out in turn. You have more than usual courage and a strong sense of adventure now. While this is mostly about enjoying and expressing yourself, it’s also a time when others’ input can be instrumental. You may need to make adjustments for others today, and it can help you in the long run as you get the chance to observe and redirect plans.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house, putting in the effort towards something productive, however big or small, is what satisfies most, dear Taurus. Fortunately, the Moon harmonizes with Pluto and Mars, helping with the motivation and determination factors. You can be particularly productive on a home, work, or family matter/project. It’s an excellent time to put something in order. You’re focusing on priorities; today is good for solving problems or fixing errors. While you tend to notice flaws, you are more motivated to use your time wisely by dealing with issues and putting them behind you.
GeminiWith Mars’ recent move into your solar third house, you enjoy a stronger sense of purpose and vision, dear Gemini, along with increased enthusiasm for pursuing studies or projects. Today’s transits highlight an easy flow of creativity and pleasing communications as the Moon moves into your sector of joy and harmonizes with Mars and Pluto. Your actions and emotions are in harmony, boosting you in almost every life department in some shape or form. You gravitate to activities that entertain and offer you a fun and healthy challenge, especially a mental one. It’s a strong time for feeling comfortable and enjoying yourself. New insight into a close relationship comes from pushing boundaries, particularly related to ideas and beliefs, just enough to become closer.
CancerThere has been a stronger focus on the mental world, dear Cancer, and today, you begin to crave more downtime. Still, you want to keep busy and productive. With today’s transits, your need for security and familiarity is especially pronounced, and you’re both ready and willing to pursue and secure these things. Strong energy is with you to tap into your needs. You’re a little more reflective but receptive at this point in the lunar cycle. It’s a good time to recuperate and relax with those people or things you hold dear, and you’re likely to feel this desire strongly now. You’re observing things you might normally miss, and healing comes naturally.
LeoThe Moon moves into your communications sector for a stay of over two days, dear Leo, stirring up your interest and curiosity. Today, it harmonizes with Pluto in your partnership sector and Mars in your sign, helping you bridge gaps with someone over a recent disagreement. Relationships can fare very well today, especially with more open communication. You’re also ready to take on a challenge, particularly a mental one. It feels good to fuel up with enthusiasm. Something you learn or come across can excite your curiosity, and a little healthy competition can motivate you. With your action-oriented mood, you might start something new or build upon a fabulous idea.
VirgoToday is good for enjoying the rewards of recent accomplishments, dear Virgo, and for considering or setting new goals. The Moon moves out of your sign and into your solar second house, where it will transit for over two days. Ideally, the Moon’s stay in Virgo has helped you recognize your needs, but it now feels good that you are in control of your moods rather than at their mercy. You can feel a little more emotionally settled but still quite action-oriented. While your needs for steadiness and comfort are strong with this transit, you’re ready to pursue these things determinedly. It’s easier than usual to center yourself and simplify your life, and it would be a good idea to apply your practical mindset to anything that needs trimming down, editing, and streamlining.
LibraThe Moon heads into Libra today, which is a sign that you’re becoming more interactive and emotionally engaged, dear Libra. You’re especially noticeable and appealingly so! You quickly gain the support and cooperation of others, but you can also do well with independent tasks right now. Transits encourage strong attention to unmet needs, and you’re particularly resourceful and dynamic. Activities related to networking and innovative work can be especially successful and pleasantly lively. It’s an excellent time for motivation and focus. You’re ready to tackle a big project or take on something new.
ScorpioWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, it’s a good time to learn more about your inner workings and motivations. If you find yourself avoiding situations that demand too much energy today, this can be strategic as you need time to recoup before moving forward. You’ll do well to have an emotional reset of sorts. With more peace within, you are more likely to meet with success in the outer world later. If you’re on the fence about a matter, perhaps there’s a reason! There is good energy with you for family relationships or nurturing, supportive activities. While you’re going under the radar in some way, you’re also quite focused on your goals and ambitions.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your solar eleventh house for a stay of over two days, dear Sagittarius, responsibilities feel less pressing, which opens you up to more enjoyment and a more satisfying social life. Making room for pleasant activities makes sense now, and you’re in a fine position to connect with new or favorite ideas and interests. A recent disagreement falls out of the way as you see eye to eye. Inventing, innovating, exploring, and discovering are themes, especially on a mental plane. You’re looking to expand your mind, and spirit-lifting activities can be a strong draw under current transits. At the same time, you’re more aware of your limits, which helps you understand your boundaries and prevents you from overextending yourself.
CapricornThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, which can encourage you to gear up to take care of business, dear Capricorn. Confidence building makes the most sense right now. The Moon harmonizes with Pluto and Mars, making you especially brave about taking on challenges. Decision-making smooths out, and practical matters win your attention. It’s a good time to check in with your goals and recent accomplishments, and either adjust course or move forward with more determination. Changing your timelines or methods may be part of this. Today, you’re aiming to be pleasantly productive and gently challenged. While active, you’re also pacing yourself, which seems the best formula at the moment.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your solar ninth house for a stay of over two days, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to expand, discover, learn, and feed your spirit. There can be some relationship excitement or a new perspective to a recent disagreement. Aim to refresh yourself with different activities. It can be a perfect time for a one-on-one activity or for learning something new. A new topic of interest can enliven your day, and you may feel more courageous about an idea that pushes the usual boundaries. Opportunities for expressing yourself emerge. You’re in an excellent position to see what’s been stressing you out more than helping you along. Mainly, it’s about making emotional space for inviting positive experiences into your life. You have a sharp sense of your capabilities today such that you’re unlikely to push things too far.
PiscesWith the Moon’s move into your solar eighth house today, dear Pisces, you’re inclined to seek deeper satisfaction from your interactions, projects, and experiences. Doing a little research, investigation, or analysis can be a strong draw. You’re happy to sort bits and pieces and give further thought to matters. You’re motivated and engaged, and you’re also ready to go all in. You’re in touch with your desire to produce and organize, but the desire to know more about a person or relationship can also be active today. It’s important to make room for understanding yourself on a deeper level, and opportunities to do so emerge now. This puts you in an advantageous position for making future decisions, especially if they need to be made on the spur of the moment.
