Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’ll find it easy to express yourself in satisfying ways through various channels today, dear Aries. The Moon in your spirit sector reaches out to Jupiter in your sign, which can inspire self-confidence and optimism. Jupiter is in the last leg of its journey through your sign — it has just over a week left of its transit of Aries. Aim to take advantage by exploring new personal interests or doing something you’ve always wanted to do but lacked the confidence. If you feel disconnected from the people you love later today, make plans to bring the warmth and closeness back. You can experience a tug-of-war between your desire to get things done and your need to relax and blend in with your surrounding. Confidence-building makes the most sense right now.
TaurusYou’re more sensitive than usual today, dear Taurus, and an introspective mood becomes you. Once you find a way to center yourself, you can have extraordinary insight into your life and relationships. Your personal life and inner world of emotions are in strong focus. It’s an excellent day for observation and strategy. Jupiter is spending its last week in your privacy sector before it moves into your sign on the 16th, bringing blessings of confidence and optimism to your personality. Take advantage of this time to get in better touch with what you truly want. Later today, focusing on the bigger picture helps you frame things in a comforting way. There can be a real rush of positive, forward-looking energy with you. There is certainly a desire for something out of the ordinary now, but distractions, schedule changes, or lack of planning can interfere. Still, through small problems, you might discover alternate ways to enjoy yourself.
GeminiToday’s transits favor socializing or getting closer to a significant person in your life, dear Gemini. It’s easier than usual to succeed in any agreements or negotiations. A compromise could be made, and it’s satisfying. People tend to support you, and it’s two-way. Later today, transits boost practical thinking and problem-solving. Your need to look within or observe rather than push forward with plans emerges. Tensions over money, valuables, and business matters can also arise. As much as you may want to, it’s not easy to get motivated and get going on something independently with today’s transits.
CancerManaging the details of your life or putting things in better order can be useful and satisfying today, dear Cancer. Jupiter is heading into its final week in your career and reputation sector, and it’s a good idea to take advantage by throwing extra energy into your work and making improvements that you can be proud of. Later today, you seek out people who appreciate you, although you’re perhaps not as present with others as usual. Your inclination to go your own way might clash with a desire for company. You can be more sensitive to imbalances in relationships than usual. Aim to identify your feelings and sort them out if they are interfering with clarity.
LeoYour senses heighten today, dear Leo, and you can find yourself in a romantic and creative mood. Inspiration can be had, and trends are strong for enjoying and expressing yourself. Distractions are plenty today, and drawing some boundaries or taking some “me” time can help you center yourself. Once refreshed, you can enjoy the more playful elements of the day. You’re expressing yourself more fluidly and confidently. Jupiter is heading into its last week of its journey through your solar ninth house, and it’s a good idea to take advantage of this positive energy by learning and connecting with those subjects you genuinely enjoy. You’re moving to a career peak, and preparing for that period makes a lot of sense. Later today, despite some moodiness, you can feel motivated and passionate.
VirgoWhile you’re motivated in general, dear Virgo, you may need to build up strength within, and today holds good energy for doing so. It’s a good idea to give stronger attention to your personal life and attend to your inner world. You’re in an excellent position to understand your needs and feelings, as well as to see what others need from you more clearly. Your improved relationship with yourself can ultimately benefit many different life departments, including your relationships. Later today, you more naturally come out of your shell, and transits excite your desire to express yourself. While the mood is playful and pleasant, a tendency toward excess may need managing.
LibraYou’re very willing to negotiate, compromise, and maintain a comfortable level of harmony today, dear Libra. Jupiter is heading into its final week of its transit of your partnership sector, and it’s a good time to enjoy your social connections. People see you in a special light. Later today, if others are trying to pull all of your energy in their direction, you will need to put up some form of resistance for sanity’s sake. The Moon heads into your family and home sector, and it’s a signal that you need some downtime. It’s a great time to get in touch with any needs and desires you’ve kept at bay or suppressed.
ScorpioA steady pace works well for you today, dear Scorpio, and there can be a pleasant emphasis on matters of comfort and security. This is a potentially strong day for harnessing the power of living in the moment. Jupiter is heading into its final week of its transit of your work and health sector, and it’s a good idea to make the most of this transit that boosts your work prospects and attitude toward taking care of yourself through rewarding, healthy daily routines. It’s a fine time to enjoy your everyday affairs. Later today, the Moon moves in your solar third house, and you can enjoy the feeling of being busy but might find it hard to know exactly what you want to do with yourself initially. Distractions can be plenty. People can be holding back their true feelings and more sensitive emotions temporarily, so it could be an uphill battle trying to get the information you crave. However, you’ll probably find that letting things flow naturally smooths things over.
SagittariusA hobby can be especially satisfying today, dear Sagittarius, or you find it more comfortable to express and enjoy yourself. The day’s transits support your efforts to express your creative or romantic side. You could find it easier to put difficult elements of the past, guilt, or worry behind you. As you seek extra meaning in your life, it motivates you to do your best or shoot for something bigger. While social worries can impact productivity later today, streamlining comes naturally once you tune out some distractions. You could find that letting go of a desire to find all the answers helps you get to a much better place.
CapricornThe Moon spends a good part of the day in your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, and some withdrawal or moments for reflection can do you a world of good. You are not especially visible right now, and this suits you well for now. Emotional energy increases when the Moon enters Capricorn later today, but until then, extra time to yourself or to rest is appropriate. It’s a good time for connecting with deep needs, desires, and feelings. The Moon’s move into your sign turns up the emotional volume. Feelings you may have kept at bay demand your full attention. You can be filled with initiative but could be a little restless if you’re not yet sure where to direct your energy.
AquariusToday’s energies are particularly favorable for reaching out, dear Aquarius, or throwing yourself into projects you enjoy. Jupiter is heading into the final week of its journey through your communications sector before moving on to bless and expand home and family matters. Take advantage of this time to enjoy learning, writing, studying, and making connections. Today favors your social life, creative discoveries and ideas, and light, playful interactions with others. Later today, the Moon heads into the final sector of your solar chart, and it makes sense to learn more about your inner workings and motivations. For just over two days, getting more time to detox and decompress emotionally can be most helpful.
PiscesTaking care of business feels right and even enjoyable today, dear Pisces. Jupiter is heading into the final week of its transit of your resources sector, and today, it harmonizes with the Moon. It’s a good time to take advantage of this fruitful energy by looking for ideas to boost your resources. A good idea or opportunity for increased prosperity can fall into your lap now. Later today, your focus can turn to strengthening an alliance or friendship. Turning your attention to the outside world or your loftier goals can be just what you need to gain perspective.
