Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou tend to seek more interaction than usual today, dear Aries, and you’re more emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. The Moon’s opposition to Saturn can point to some blocks standing in the way of enjoyment, and these can relate to your responsibilities to others or the demands of your friends or networks. You may need to draw some lines so you can have more time to detox and enjoy yourself. Mercury is about to turn retrograde, giving you a several-week window to review your options or rethink plans related to learning, communicating, transportation, and making contacts or connections. You might experience some delays due to misunderstood communications, transportation problems or repairs, and possibly computer-related difficulties. These speed bumps are unlikely to be serious, merely inconvenient. Because of them, you might discover new and improved ways of making your connections, which you may not have considered otherwise. It’s a good time to journal and rework studies and projects. You might enjoy renewing or recycling old ideas and interests.
TaurusYou could feel a little off or sensitive to a lack of support today, dear Taurus, with the Moon opposite Saturn. Try not to look outside of yourself for answers today. Instead, give yourself more time to get in touch with your intuition. Mercury will turn retrograde tomorrow, and in the coming weeks, you may have some waiting or rethinking to do. Your path now is to look at money matters in new ways. As you reduce expenses, you reduce some of the strain on your brain. Trying to push things forward is not likely to be a wise strategy during this period. If a money or business matter is delayed, it’s time to find new ways to approach your life and make important discoveries. You may need to review financial affairs, income, and budgets. It can be inconvenient but preferable to throwing yourself into new commitments or agreements that may lose their appeal or glamor later. There can be a change of mind or interest, possibly even regret about communications or projects begun now and in recent days.
GeminiThere can be some problems getting your message across right now, dear Gemini, with the Moon opposite Saturn in your communication sectors and Mercury about to turn retrograde. Take a little more care than usual to make yourself exceptionally clear, or consider waiting to present your case for a better time. While your ability to concentrate may suffer today, exploring potential interests can be satisfying. Mercury’s retrograde occurs from tomorrow until June 3rd. In the coming weeks, there can be apparent slowdowns or backtracking in your life. This cycle can redirect you to refine your plans. However, you might find that others misinterpret your words or body language more than usual. On the 22nd, Mercury will retreat into your privacy sector, and you’ll be reorganizing, reflecting, and refining. Aim to take your time with decisions and commitments. Decision-making turns inward during this cycle, and intuition wins over pure logic.
CancerMoney or power dynamics can be tricky today, dear Cancer, and you could find that you need more time to yourself. If you’ve been too focused on supporting others, getting to a better balance should be a priority today. Mercury is heading into a station as it turns retrograde early tomorrow. During this cycle that lasts until June 3rd, problems may crop up more frequently, and there can be some inconvenient delays or turnarounds. Trusting your instincts may not be as straightforward as usual, and you may be looking back a lot more than you are looking forward. Past mistakes can return to your attention. You may also experience some interruptions or a state of limbo on some issues. Your thinking is more spiritual and less factual, which can be a definite asset if applied to the right things! Take extra steps to avoid revealing something you’d prefer to remain hidden. It’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work already in progress. Examination of the past is appropriate now, but try not to get so caught up in it that you forget your priorities.
LeoThe Moon in your sign opposes Saturn today, dear Leo, and the minor hurdles that you face can force small changes and refinements that will help you out in the long run. Listen to your feelings and interpret them, but watch for a tendency to dwell on problem areas. Mercury, the planet that rules communication and transportation, is about to turn retrograde. In the coming weeks, there can be some delays or clogged information to manage. While today and tomorrow can be a tad confusing when it comes to being understood and understanding others, as long as you avoid concentrating on the syntax of communications, you can get by. You could be turning to past friendships or projects with increased interest. Reminders of a past goal or dream can emerge. You can benefit from some introspection now, especially regarding your long-term goals, group associations, or a particular friendship.
VirgoYou might worry about a past poor choice or mistake and take it too seriously today, dear Virgo, with the Moon opposite Saturn. You could begin the day preferring some quiet or anonymity. However, once the Moon enters your sign later today, your need for emotional connectedness emerges. You’re more inclined to follow your feelings. Mercury, your planetary ruler, is about to begin its retrograde cycle, lasting until June 3rd. The weeks ahead are valuable for catching up by slowing down some areas of your life that have become too rushed! Initially, you may see this slowing down as annoying and inconvenient before adjusting to the shift and seeing its merits. Until the 22nd, the retrograde occurs in your career and reputation sector, and you might experience more than usual delays or confusion regarding goals, career choices, and business projects, or this might relate to your reputation. Past matters and tasks can be rehashed or recirculated. While it’s a good time for refining long-term goals and career projects, there can be some confusion surrounding business plans or communications. Remember that information received or perceived today and tomorrow can be incomplete or skewed. Overall, however, retrograde Mercury cycles hold excellent potential for refining current projects and for doing some rethinking that benefits you tremendously.
LibraIt may not be easy to settle on a special activity today, dear Libra, but it’s best to aim to rest your mind. Later today, the Moon heads into your privacy sector for a stay of over two days, and it’s time to digest, process, and decompress. Mercury will turn retrograde early tomorrow, making it a better time to observe than jump into decisions. There can be some fuzziness, confusing directions, or key missing information today and tomorrow. However, the retrograde cycle itself, lasting until June 3rd, is a good time for looking at past decisions and projects with a new eye. There can be inconveniences and slowdowns that may be blessings in disguise as you turn your attention to problems you didn’t know existed. Fortunately, your corrections or edits can ultimately help you tremendously.
ScorpioWith the Moon opposite Saturn today, dear Scorpio, your attention turns to pressing matters. Responsibilities in your personal or home life can draw you in, and you can feel pulled in different directions, making finding a balance a priority. Mercury turns retrograde early tomorrow, and you might be giving off the wrong signals, or others don’t interpret the right signals correctly for the time being. Even if the shift is awkward or confusing, the cycle itself, lasting until June 3rd, is suitable for review. In the weeks ahead, aim to take extra time to arrive at important decisions or put particularly perplexing problems on hold. Rethink your financial situation, particularly dependencies on alternate sources of income. You could experience delays, which can encourage you to get creative with money. For the first part of this retrograde period–until the 22nd–it occurs in your solar eighth house, and you can find yourself backtracking with shared finances, intimate relationships, or matters of trust. After the 22nd, your one-to-one relationships are affected most. It’s a time of some introspection and review, and reassessing joint finances and debts can be beneficial. You may frequently turn to the past to understand the present, and this rumination can be particularly useful.
SagittariusIndecision can be a good thing today if it keeps you from making choices you don’t wholly own, dear Sagittarius. The general tendency is to be in limbo, but it shouldn’t detract from the positive potential of the day for reflection and emotional refreshment. Mercury is about to begin its retrograde cycle that will last from early tomorrow to June 3rd. Until the 22nd, this cycle impacts your close personal relationships most, after which work or health matters are more prominent. There can be a focus on the past with a close relationship. You could be waiting for information or otherwise in limbo. This may give you the chance to consider other angles that benefit you. In fact, it can be an excellent time to revise, review, and reorganize as you see things you may have missed because you were too busy to notice the first time around. Communications can be muddled today and tomorrow, but delays can also help you understand your situation better.
CapricornYou could be exploring your feelings instead of dismissing them or tucking them away, dear Capricorn. Needs you’ve neglected deserve extra attention. This profound focus on your feelings and desires can clash with your urge to take care of business today. Complicated emotions can interfere with your productivity when keeping things straightforward tends to serve your practical purposes better. Mercury is about to turn retrograde, and until June 3rd, there can be some rethinking or reworking of work projects that you thought were complete can figure strongly.

AquariusYou may not feel wholly understood today, dear Aquarius, with Saturn in your sign opposing the Moon today. However, if you let that go and work on what matters most, you’ll be in good shape. Try not to allow personal blocks to interfere with your enjoyment of companionship. It’s a good time of the lunar month for giving close relationships special attention. Mercury will turn retrograde early tomorrow, which is a signal from the cosmos to be a little more mindful when expressing yourself, signing important documents, or coming to binding agreements. You may be less decisive during this cycle that lasts until June 3rd, or you’re dealing with information clogs. The shift now tends to magnify problems, but as the cycle settles in, you’re in a good position to look to past projects or relationships for inspiration. Making edits and refinements can be valuable. Aim to take your time coming to conclusions. This period can be a chance to catch up in other areas of life and rethink matters.
PiscesYou’re more likely to notice the minor problems in your life today, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your work sector opposite Saturn. Ideally, you’re motivated to care for essential matters and iron out differences. However, if you’re feeling a little off, you can be inclined to fret and worry. It’s best to focus on one thing at a time to prevent feelings of being overwhelmed. Today’s energies point to a shift of mental focus, with Mercury about to turn retrograde. Mercury will remain retrograde until June 3rd, and communications you take for granted seem to malfunction in minor but irritating ways. The trick is your ability to rise above superficial matters and see into the person’s heart behind the fumbled words. Keep things definite and straightforward for the best results. Still, there could be some stalling with household, family, learning, or transportation matters. This retrograde cycle can undoubtedly sway your thinking and change your mind about past decisions as it allows you to see things from a different perspective. At first, you may feel inconvenienced as delays or misunderstandings seem more frequent. However, they can open your mind to new ways of expressing yourself and alert you to problem areas that need revision, review, and editing. Think in terms of evaluation and development rather than pushing something entirely new.
