Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEmotions run high today, dear Aries. A Lunar Eclipse today prompts a turning point, realization, or epiphanies surrounding financial, ownership, intimate, or sharing matters. In the coming weeks, there can be activities with financial support, taxes, debts, investments, or a close relationship and power dynamics or trust issues. New money can come into your life, or there’s a need to shuffle around your finances to accommodate changes. This eclipse ultimately brings buried or long-brewing situations to a head or the surface. You might reach a settlement or change how you depend on others. While resolutions won’t come yet, events and realizations can get the ball rolling. For now, observe and reserve judgment.
TaurusThere is comfort in going your own way since it means not having to answer to someone, dear Taurus. However, events can challenge you to face your attachments, even though it’s been very much about you and where you’re heading these days! With a Lunar Eclipse in your opposite sign, your attention turns to the perspective, agenda, or needs of a significant other. This can help balance things out due to a recent and necessary focus on your personal plans. Still, you could initially feel drained or overwhelmed. There can be an unusual amount of social and relationship activity in the coming weeks. It can be a time for an important announcement, or a commitment might be an issue on the table. Epiphanies about a significant relationship in the weeks ahead can lead to substantial changes. Events over the next while will help you define your life concerning your partnership needs. First, you need to get in touch with what’s in your heart. While events and epiphanies occurring in the wake of this eclipse can be highly revealing, take time to sort through your observations and connect with your intuition.
GeminiToday’s Lunar Eclipse is part of a set of eclipses encouraging you to get to a better work-rest balance, dear Gemini. This set began in November 2021 and continues until October 2023. This particular eclipse challenges you to deal with loose ends, looming deadlines, health matters, or scheduling issues. Realizations and reveals over the coming weeks can prompt you to get going on an exercise or nutrition program that you know you have to do to feel more balanced, or there can be a culmination of a job or work project that gets you to a turning point. Demands can be high, and emotions are strong. Disruptions ultimately help redirect you along a more authentic path. You have a good sense that if you stay on top of the demands, you’ll be able to make meaningful changes. The weeks ahead are strong for making peace with the past. Aim to go slowly and figure out what’s in your heart before taking concrete action, as there is more to an unfolding story!
CancerInfluences on your chart continue to transform your social life, dreams, wishes, and initiatives, dear Cancer. Today’s Lunar Eclipse brings strong attention to your needs for recreation, romance, and creative expression. These matters have often been overlooked or outshined, and now you’re reminded of their importance. Feelings are powerful. With so many things, and possibly people, vying for your attention, your next step may not be straightforward. However, reorienting yourself is a good idea, and this eclipse can force the issue! Revelations or news surrounding romance, children, hobbies, or creative pursuits can occur in the coming weeks. There might be developments or new feelings in a romantic affair and possibly some tests, but the path is clearing for more authenticity. Your true feelings about a person, romance, or a project can flood your awareness, and life changes as a result. Letting something go makes room for a rush of new creativity. Since this is a part of a series of eclipses that last until October, you won’t have all the answers yet, but you’re certainly on your way. Aim to take your time with your feelings–it’s not the time to rush.
LeoThere’s a stronger focus on your career, public, life direction, or reputation matters at this time of year, dear Leo. If you feel a little out of balance, your best bet is to slow down and avoid acting on impulses, but do pay attention to prompts and reveals happening this week. Today’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your home and family sector, and it can inspire realizations or epiphanies along these lines going forward. Feelings you’ve kept at bay or haven’t yet acknowledged are impossible to ignore now! Events and revelations will ultimately clear the path for improvements in your life, particularly related to career, reputation, status, home, and family. Home repairs, family dramas, or internal changes can be part of the picture in the coming weeks, and you’re in the position to balance out your attention to outside responsibilities and your personal life. If you’ve been over-extending yourself, you’ll prioritize finding ways to get more downtime. Recognizing your need for familiarity, warmth, and nurture is vital now. Watch, however, for a sense that you need to rush, be first, or get something done right away, when this may not be necessary.
VirgoToday’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your communications and transportation sector, dear Virgo. In the weeks ahead, there can be important discoveries, ideas, and changes in your mindset or attitude. Watch for impulsive self-expression, but give weight to your emotions and intuition. Writing, learning, sharing, publicity, and promotion are themes that reach a turning point. This eclipse reminds you to connect with your true feelings about what you’re learning, communicating, and sharing. Emotions run particularly high, but so does mental energy, which can be a confusing mess for now! There can be a sudden need to handle your daily affairs, or a change of plans prompts a wave of activity. Watch for impatience that can lead you to trip over yourself. Minor issues can be the trigger, but major issues may be at the root. Watch what you communicate at this time, too, since emotions tend to run high and misunderstandings or misjudgments are likely. Ultimately, though, this is about connecting with your personal truth.
LibraAs you go a little more deeply into your pursuits these days, you may need to find moments to come up for air, dear Libra. Heightened emotions surrounding money and possessions, as well as personal values and talents, can be a theme now with a Lunar Eclipse landing in your resources sector. It holds power over you to face feelings and make changes and improvements that get you to a stronger sense of security, predictability, and safety. You can have a revelation about money or business or deal with matters related to your values and self-worth or boundaries in a relationship in the weeks ahead. Take your time before making any pivotal decisions, but aim to examine feelings coming to the surface, however raw they may be. Seek some balance. If there is a tug of war with someone (or within yourself) over money, possessions, and matters of control, look for the message or the lesson, but take time to process your realizations.
ScorpioToday’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your sign, and you may have an emotional awakening this week, dear Scorpio. The truth you face is about something that’s been with you for some time but that you haven’t yet acknowledged or fully noticed. Emotions run high, especially surrounding a personal matter or close relationship, and even with all of the emotional excitement, you can feel energetically drained. You’re heading toward a significant revelation, likely concerning your feelings about someone, your image, or personal impact. There has been much focus on other people in your life and making your connections stronger and happier. Of course, taking better care of yourself plays a significant role in all of this, and if you’ve forgotten about it, this eclipse serves as a reminder. Events or epiphanies can push a desire to make changes related to your sense of independence. These feelings are real, but take your time with them. You’re not seeing everything about an unfolding story. Be careful not to allow others’ noise to outweigh your feelings.
SagittariusYour focus on health, wellness, work, and daily routines continues, dear Sagittarius, but today’s Lunar Eclipse reminds you of the need for some quality downtime. This eclipse highlights energies that seem to pit your need for rest against chores and duties. It’s time to take a break from overthinking, and circumstances now demand you get a chance to tune out. This eclipse can push troubled areas to the foreground for your attention as it temporarily obscures or de-emphasizes the practical side of things. The need for extra rest and quiet or private time becomes apparent, and better time management may be necessary. Disruptions in your routine force you to pull yourself away from the daily grind. Watch for speaking about a matter too soon or pushing too hard for clarity–in time, direction and purpose will reveal themselves.
CapricornFeelings are strong and guiding you today, dear Capricorn, with a Lunar Eclipse in your solar eleventh house, influencing your social life, happiness pursuits, group associations, and friends. Your feelings for someone, about a relationship, or your social life, in general, can be pivotal now, reaching a turning point. Ultimately, this eclipse brings you to powerful realizations about long-term happiness goals. Events in the coming week tend to push you along a more authentic path. You need this background to make meaningful choices later, but consider that it’s best to sit with your feelings for a while to get to that point. You may need to deal with facts and figures or practical matters before returning your attention to what you truly want to accomplish. This eclipse can pull problem areas that have been brewing to the foreground. Ultimately, clearing the air helps you make better choices. Aim to feel, experience, and take in but to act on all of this later.
AquariusThere continues to be strong activity in your sector of home, family, domestic matters, and personal foundations, dear Aquarius, but today’s Lunar Eclipse asks you to attend to demands from the outside world. Responsibilities or problems that have been neglected or overlooked have a way of surfacing for your attention. This lunation affects how you see your life path and is a persuasive prompt to sort out the delicate home-work balance in your life in the weeks ahead. Unrest with work, bosses, or related to your long-term goals and the current path you’re taking to reach them are stirring with this eclipse, and changes may be imminent. There can be a feeling of urgency now, but it’s best to process your feelings before acting on them. There’s more to a story that has yet to unfold fully. Misunderstandings can be plenty, and you’ll want to avoid bad press now.
PiscesYour interests, daily affairs, and studies or learning continue to be in strong focus, dear Pisces. Still, today’s Lunar Eclipse can show you where your life has come out of balance due to this focus, generating much emotional and mental energy. Focusing it all can be difficult, and it’s best to give yourself time to process any news or new information coming your way this week. This eclipse prompts you to fit more extracurricular activities into your life, reminding you to expand your skills and knowledge. You may have felt very much tied to your desk, neighborhood, or projects, and you now experience a call to get away, even if this is only for mental refreshment. There can be some tense moments or impatience, or you could feel in a hurry even if there isn’t an actual rush, so check in with yourself. Sometimes, you put pressure on yourself when it isn’t warranted. Watch the temptation to push when this is an opportune moment to take the time to feel, learn about, and understand your desires and drives. Frustration can center on intellectual planes, so watch for speaking prematurely or making too much of something said.
