Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re seeking more predictability in a general sense at this time of the year, dear Aries, with the Sun in your solar second house. You benefit from the comfort of a routine. Today’s Moon brings out your need to take a small risk or share yourself. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, encouraging you to break out of a pattern and have a little fun. It’s a brief transit, and although you might initially resist these needs, you’re best off finding ways to enjoy a little more interaction. Emotional and physical energies may be mismatched just for now, and it’s best to avoid taking on too much. Soon enough, you’re likely to embrace the need for time to refresh and rejuvenate yourself through activities you genuinely enjoy.
TaurusYou’re more active and perhaps on-call these days, dear Taurus, with the Sun in your sign. Today, the Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, bringing on a strong need for time to relax and connect with familiar places and faces. It clashes with your drive for more activity and exploration, and while you should find ways to balance your life, avoid neglecting your needs. It’s also best to watch for impatience. Certain issues or desires can feel pressing or urgent when you’re likely better off waiting things out. At any rate, whims that come on suddenly are probably not reflective of your true needs today.
GeminiThe Moon spends all day in your communications sector, stirring your need for light and easygoing exchanges, dear Gemini. With the Sun in your solar twelfth house these days, you’re somewhat retiring, but today’s transits encourage you to do more reaching or venturing out. Others might stimulate a competitive urge in you, and you can work this to your advantage with some creativity and determination. The Moon clashes with the Sun today, and ideas can be big and compelling, but it can be challenging to decide on something to focus on with your conflicting feelings. It may be possible to keep your commitment to taking more time to yourself while also doing some things that satisfy your need to diversify and engage.
CancerIt’s a generally strong period for your social life, group endeavors, or happiness goals, dear Cancer. However, the Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and practical concerns seem more pressing and demanding. It would be best to address your need for a little more predictability or security at this time of the lunar cycle. Ultimately, you’ll have more emotional fuel for pursuing your personal interests once you do so. Aim to be gentle with yourself and your activities and projects right now. Getting a pleasant, useful break will ultimately feel just right.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, bringing you out of your shell and ready to connect with others, dear Leo, but perhaps impatient. The current Sun cycle spotlights your goals and ambitions, but personal needs compete for your attention today. You could feel restless, but you’re better off if you can direct excess or frustrated energy into a more creative activity. At this time of the lunar month, it’s best to acknowledge feelings you’ve kept at bay but to aim for moderation. Today’s First Quarter Moon presents the challenge of personal needs demanding some attention and the determination to make things work.
VirgoWith the Moon in the sign behind yours today, you seek emotional refreshment through retiring and reflecting, dear Virgo. It’s a time of the month for processing and digesting. Initially, this need conflicts with the larger theme in your life of exploration and experimentation, and you may wrestle with whether to take it easy or push out of your comfort zone. It would be a good idea to recognize the need for emotional healing or a break from competitive situations. It may be a blessing in disguise if circumstances keep you in limbo, as it gives you the chance to catch up. Aim to fight off restlessness with compromises.
LibraThe Moon spends today in your social sector, turning your focus to your friendships or goals related to happiness and enjoyment, dear Libra. You might find that you’re aiming for greater freedom and self-expression despite a general need for more intimacy and closeness these days. There’s a bit of a rebel in you today, and restlessness can be the result. Aim to do your best to find a way to honor divergent needs either separately or with a compromise. In truth, you can learn from the differences and use the tension as fuel for motivation to improve and make changes.
ScorpioYou’re in a collaborative Sun cycle these days, dear Scorpio. Today, the Moon spends the day in your sector of long-term goals, however. This transit reminds you of your obligations, and there could be a need to perform or take care of business. You can feel divided and perhaps restless until you find a balance. It may be best to use the competitive power you feel now to work on a productive project. Aim to connect with your need to have stronger goals and plans. Avoid tensions that stem from feeling pressured to move forward too quickly or to take on too much. Consider that you’re more sensitive to others’ evaluations of you right now.
SagittariusYou’re craving a break from the routine today, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon encouraging you to explore and discover rather than produce. However, you could be dealing with competing needs to handle details or manage your daily affairs. As divided as you may feel about work and play today, you’re in good shape for thinking up new ideas and possibilities. Once past the division, the Moon in your spirit and adventure sector helps you find some inspiration or mental refreshment. Your interests expand today as you see more options and possibilities. This mindset can certainly distract you from the task, but it may be that you need a change of pace or a change of scenery for a short while to come back more refreshed.
CapricornWith today’s First Quarter Moon, dear Capricorn, there can be feelings of being divided between two strong needs or mindsets. However, the tension it generates can spark creativity and the desire to change and improve. Still, restlessness can be an issue at times. With the Sun moving through your solar fifth house at this time of year, you are generally more relaxed and playful in your expression. Today’s Moon is in a more serious, intimate sector of your chart, and deeper needs can surface, demanding your attention. Resentments might also emerge. Through a bit of discontent, you may understand your needs and ambitions all the better.
AquariusToday’s First Quarter Moon can leave you feeling caught between two strong needs, dear Aquarius, but it can also stir up just enough tension to inspire meaningful improvements. You’ve needed more downtime or quiet in recent days, but you can experience a sudden need for collaboration with the Moon in your partnership sector all day. Feedback can help you get in better touch with your feelings and ideas at this time of the lunar month. It may only be that you need a brief change of pace or a compromise to get back on track.
PiscesWith the Sun in your communications sector these days, you’re more curious and tuned in to your personal interests, dear Pisces. Today’s Moon spotlights your need for more order or attention to chores and duties, however. A sudden need to handle your work or health matters might seem to infringe upon your time spent learning new things. It may be best to divide your time wisely, accepting a compromise so that a divided feeling doesn’t keep you from enjoying the day. It’s a good time to allow inner tension to motivate you to make meaningful changes. Even if it appears that the work you need to handle limits your time spent with new interests and learning, you can benefit from a break in the action.
