Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesLearning new things and getting busy mentally are satisfying today, dear Aries. Your need for movement and variety is pronounced. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and its connection to Mercury eases your self-expression, primarily through your connections, projects, personal interests, and studies. It’s easier than usual to spark your curiosity and follow it. We can sometimes talk without our hearts engaging, but your communications today are more likely to reflect what’s going on inside. Later today, the energies of a Venus-Jupiter square come into influence, and it’s best to watch for hidden costs, both socially and financially. There is a tendency to go big and ignore the essential details temporarily. Of course, bigger isn’t always better. Some moderation is a good idea and can result in a happy, rewarding period.
TaurusWith Mercury in your resources sector these days, your thinking might often center around practical affairs and matters of security and comfort, dear Taurus. You gravitate to concrete facts and certainties that simplify your life. Today is good for laying low and catching a break, but you’re also in fine shape for thinking or discussing these things further. You’re bringing some objectivity to your practical affairs. As the day advances, it can be tempting to seek happiness outside of yourself, but it’s best to remind yourself that you create it from within. Keeping within reasonable boundaries would serve you best, even if the temptation is to overdo and overindulge. Committing to something down the road may seem just fine right now, but later can prove to be a burden. It may be best to keep things simple.
GeminiYou’re in good shape stating your case or expressing your ideas today, dear Gemini. You might enjoy helping someone solve a problem or focusing on some of the dreams and hopes. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, and it harmonizes with Mercury in your sign, encouraging your input and involvement. Desires and new endeavors tend to burn out fast if they’re based on whims or are a result of pure restlessness. Watch for the temptation to sign up for more than you can handle or deliver with a Venus-Jupiter challenging aspect on the horizon. Optimism is a strength, but if it leads you into unrealistic territory, you may need to keep things real. A wait-and-see attitude can come in handy but aim to embrace a sense that changes are necessary for greater fulfillment in the weeks ahead.
CancerMeeting your responsibilities is important for emotional satisfaction today, dear Cancer, with the Moon transiting your solar tenth house all day. Still, it makes sense to seek different ways to satisfy your curiosity as the Moon connects with Mercury. A change of pace in some manner can make all the difference for your productivity now. Good intentions can be at the root of taking on a new endeavor or challenge today, but if plans are not well laid out, it could become a burden later on. We’re heading toward a Venus-Jupiter square that tends to create a little too much optimism. It’s better to wait a bit before pushing forward. Moods can swing today, and it’s wise to try to distinguish between a whim and a genuine desire. Aim to keep your expectations reasonable for best results.
LeoIt’s a good time to keep abreast of current happenings and gain some new perspectives on a matter, dear Leo. You’re more inclined to share your ideas, skills, talents, or knowledge with others now. Ideas are unique, and your discussions stand out as particularly witty and insightful. With the Moon in your spirit sector all day, it’s a great time for connecting with your needs for pouring special energy into a cause, relationship, or personal interest. As the day advances and we get closer to a Venus-Jupiter square, there’s some tendency to shoot too high. Going a little overboard might be fun now, but for the essential things, it’s better to respect everyone’s boundaries, including your own. With matters of the heart, try not to rush or push anything.
VirgoToday is good for doing some productive thinking about your life direction, major life transitions, business, or career path, dear Virgo. It’s a fine time to generate ideas, enjoy clearer conversations, or discover ways to boost your projects. A Venus-Jupiter square influences later today, and the urge to splurge may begin to dominate. You might aim to tame restlessness so that you can enjoy the positive vibes and spirits around you. Ask yourself whether something you’re craving now will benefit you later or whether it might be cause for regret. It can be hard to take advice right now, so try to keep yourself in the position to manage your own resources temporarily.
LibraToday’s energies tend to support your mental world more than usual, dear Libra, including communicating, sharing ideas, studies, and making decisions and plans. It’s a good time to soak in information, update your knowledge, and train or study. You’re finding joy in responding to opportunities to grow mentally. Others tend to encourage your faith in yourself and your future. As the day advances, you can experience some restlessness, and misjudging things is possible with Venus heading into a square to Jupiter. Watch that you don’t get too carried away by an idea or sensation. It’s important to remember your boundaries under this transit, aiming to take it easy with money and pleasurable pursuits. Enjoy yourself, but remember that you don’t need to go over the top to do so.
ScorpioA conversation that’s deeper and richer than the usual fare can figure strongly today, dear Scorpio. You also have a tendency to zero in on flaws and imbalances, and you can accomplish much in your efforts to bring things back to order. Good energy is with you for investigations of all kinds, particularly related to work or health. As the day advances, a Venus-Jupiter square comes into influence. This transit may produce desires that come on suddenly, but they likely stem from restlessness rather than genuine desire. Going all out is not necessarily going to improve your life, even if it appears this way right now. This aspect could point to conflicts between the demands of family and partnership. Even though you can be in a great mood now, it can be a tenuous one, as it’s a little too easy to burst your bubble. Keep expectations reasonable to even things out today.
SagittariusTalking or thinking objectively, especially about your relationship dynamics, comes naturally to you today, dear Sagittarius. However, it’s also easy to listen, understand, and support. You are focusing on the similarities between you and the people in your life, and your differences entertain more than frustrate you, further boosting your enjoyment. With Venus and Jupiter heading toward a square aspect, it’s best to avoid promising too much or overstating your feelings, which might eventually cause a problem in your life, even if it saves you now. There can be a feeling that you can take on anything with a good mood, but overshooting is likely. When your mood and energy levels out later, you won’t want to be stuck with extra work or debt.
CapricornToday favors light and airy conversations, dear Capricorn. You might also want to keep your distance from problems, at least temporarily, so that you can take a break from overthinking. Comforting and familiar activities boost your mood with the Moon in your home and family sector all day. It’s a good day for catching your breath on an emotional level. There can be helpful ideas and methods for boosting comfort in your home or developing healthier routines and habits. As the day advances, we head toward a Venus-Jupiter square. While it may promote a good mood, you might want to keep expectations of others realistic, especially in matters of the heart.
AquariusSharing your ideas and conversing can be especially enjoyable today, dear Aquarius. People are responsive and are more inclined to understand the intentions behind your communications. You see more options than usual, and possibilities seem to open up as a result. However, as the day advances, there can be some overshooting. With Venus heading to a square with Jupiter, your desire for comfort can be insistent. Aim to be kind to your body and your future self with your choices today! Moods can swing up and down, but if you can manage to keep expectations of others (and yourself) reasonable, things will be more flowing and natural.
PiscesToday’s energies are good for slowing things down a little so that you can center yourself and build your strength or sense of security, dear Pisces. Familiar and grounding activities suit you well right now. You seem to gravitate to the simpler things in life with the Moon in your solar second house, but your mind is busy, and you may be thinking up clever plans, methods, and ideas. As the day advances, Venus heads towards a square to Jupiter, and there can be some exaggeration in the air. Separate the fluff and gossip as best as possible. Aim to enjoy some new ideas without investing too quickly in those that may not pan out. It’s probably too soon, so ease forward slowly.
