Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury heads into your intimacy sector today, dear Aries. This transit is active until December 1st. Mercury spent time in this area of your solar chart recently (from September 27th to October 27th) but then retreated due to a retrograde backup. You can be more involved and passionately interested in your projects, studies, conversations, and thoughts in the weeks ahead. This cycle is especially favorable for consultations, research, and analysis. You’re likely to make some useful discoveries with money, debts, motivations, relationships, attachments, and personal psychology. Today, your desire to be useful is strong. The day seems to demand some form of clean-up. A Mercury-Ceres transit helps you sort your feelings. You’ll find it easier to communicate your inner thoughts or to make important clarifications. You could be in the position to support through conversation. At the same time, it’s a good time to find nourishment in time to yourself, some level of withdrawal or anonymity, or private time.
TaurusMercury moves back into your partnership sector today for a transit that’s active until December 1st, dear Taurus. This transit first occurred very recently (from September 27-October 27) but then backed up due to retrograde motion. Now and in the weeks ahead, conversations that were left unfinished may resume, or information that eluded you last month can emerge. It can be a fine time to open the airwaves with someone special. People in your life can help you get in better touch with your ideas since conversations with others tend to jumpstart your thinking processes. Someone may encourage you to think or express yourself more fully. The Moon spends the day in your playful solar fifth house, and you seem to need creative elements to engage emotionally. A Mercury-Ceres transit helps you think and communicate more imaginatively. Openness boosts the emotional environment around you, making it natural for sharing your inner world. There can be an opportunity to strengthen your connections to a group or cause.
GeminiMercury returns to your sector of work and health today, dear Gemini, sticking around until December 1st. Mercury spent time here from September 27th to October 27th but then backtracked due to a retrograde cycle. As such, plans or projects begun last month that faced delays, perhaps due to missing information, begin to move forward or gain momentum. This cycle is superb for attention to detail. Today, the Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, and you can benefit from further introspection. It’s also a fine time to nurture a business or project, as you’re especially tuned in to the extra touches and details that make something special. Asking for something you need or sharing guidance can figure strongly.
CancerMercury heads back into your creative solar fifth house today, dear Cancer, and will transit there until December 1st. Mercury was just recently in this sector (from September 27th to October 27th) but couldn’t complete its transit due to a retrograde backup. In the coming weeks, you’ll be in an excellent position to move fun projects and pursuits forward. You’ll have more confidence in sharing your ideas and thoughts with others, and you may very well stand out for your unique viewpoint or intelligence. More forward movement or momentum is likely after Mars turns direct on the 13th. Today, there are good opportunities to express yourself creatively or affectionately. It’s a strong time to connect or bond with someone special through beliefs and ideas. Rounding out your knowledge and exploring or discovering new ideas and perspectives can be most rewarding now. There can be positive feedback or encouragement for creative or romantic endeavors.
LeoMercury moves back into your sector of home and family today, dear Leo, and will continue to influence this area of your solar chart until December 1st. Mercury spent some time here recently (from September 27th to October 27th) but then backed up due to a retrograde and didn’t have a chance to complete its transit until now. As you advance, you might resume conversations and projects or plans with family and those related to house and home. Projects might gain momentum now. It’s an excellent time for doing some deep thinking and renewing old methods. Today, the Moon transits your solar second house, and you tend to prioritize stability, comfort, and security. Talking about a personal problem can be very helpful. It’s also a strong day for giving or seeking guidance and feeling better for it. You are especially perceptive, particularly about emotions.
VirgoMercury heads back into your sector of communication, dear Virgo. Mercury spent time here from September 27-October 27, but then backtracked when it turned retrograde. Now and in the coming week, projects you left unfinished may resume. Information that you needed to move forward arrives, and you have more time to explore personal interests that you first toyed with back then. This transit tends to create a natural flow of learning, connecting, and communicating, lasting until December 1st. The Moon spends the day in your sign, making it a good time to honor your emotional and personal needs. You’re more visible, and others tend to follow your lead. Your personal life and feelings are stronger priorities with this transit. Today’s energies also favor mental explorations. A special touch with communications can help you bond with someone or lead to meaningful opportunities. It’s easier than usual to convey warmth and care through your words and gestures.
LibraMercury leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Libra, where it will transit until December 1st. Mercury spent the September 27-October 27 in this sector but then turned retrograde and retreated into your sign. As you advance, you approach your finances from a new, refreshed perspective. You might pad your income through communications, networking, sharing, and word of mouth. Instead, it’s a time to develop strong money-making ideas or pay more attention to understanding your current resources and assets. It’s a good time to get down to brass tacks planning and dealing with your practical affairs. Today, the Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, and there is a tendency to want to withdraw or keep to yourself. This way, you can regenerate and restore your emotional energy. Working through emotional issues with others can be quite successful. You might enjoy giving some tender loving care to your work, pet projects, or valuables. You’re both imaginative and practical.
ScorpioMercury enters your sign today and will stay in Scorpio until December 1st, dear Scorpio. You hosted this planet of communications very recently–from September 27-October 27–but then it turned retrograde and retreated into your privacy sector. As such, you had some mulling over, thinking twice, and processing to do. As you advance, you’re in a great position to express yourself, make sharper decisions, and delight others with your communications. You’ll feel a nice burst of mental energy, and projects that didn’t gain momentum last month begin to move forward. Of course, you’ll see even better progress after the 13th when Mars turns direct. The Moon spends the day in your friendship sector, encouraging a focus on fulfillment through contributing. There’s good energy with you for coming across warmly in your communications. The tendency is for healthy, satisfying exchanges. Encouraging words can figure strongly.
SagittariusMercury moves into your privacy sector today, dear Sagittarius. It recently visited this area of your solar chart (from September 27-October 27), but, while retrograde, it returned to your social sector. From now and until December 1st, you’ll be reviewing projects, working behind the scenes, and enjoying a break from overthinking. You’re looking at life a little differently and picking up information that you’ve missed in the past, perhaps while you were too busy to notice. From December 1st forward, you’ll be in a more lucid state of mind for making quick decisions and beginning new projects once Mercury enters your sign. Until then, take the time to think things through. Wrapping up projects can figure strongly now. The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and you crave more details and structures. You’re goal-oriented now. You’re also in a good position to communicate your feelings or to discuss personal or past matters. You can be a great source of guidance or comfort to someone.
CapricornMercury moves into your social sector for a transit that lasts until December 1st, dear Capricorn. It visited this area of your solar chart very recently–from September 27-October 27–before it went on a retrograde backup. With the planet of communication back, you’re in a strong position for networking. Pursuits you started last month now gain forward momentum, and you’re finding the right information for moving new initiatives forward. This cycle encourages a more relaxed rapport with associates, friends, and networks. It’s also an active period for innovative and enterprising thinking. After Mars turns direct on the 13th, things mobilize further. Today, you’re in a rather spirited mood. You’re alert, and you can learn a lot from your friends or networks. You could find yourself in a position to guide and help. A thoughtful gesture or act can figure strongly now. A person or piece of news might open your heart or mind to improved ways of relating and connecting.
AquariusMercury heads back to the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until December 1st. It was there very recently–from September 27th to October 27th–but then retreated due to a retrograde cycle. As you advance, you’re in a great position to share your ideas with others, particularly in public or professional settings. You’ll gain momentum for ideas and plans that were delayed last month. You get to fill in the details for long-term goals and plans in the weeks ahead. The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, encouraging observation and strategy. You tend to find the right information you need at the right time today. A great idea might open the door to an increase in income down the road. You might pay special attention to your practical pursuits, job, or money, and your insight and resourcefulness with these things are notable.
PiscesMercury returns to your solar ninth house of spirit and adventure today, dear Pisces, and will influence there until December 1st. This transit began but didn’t complete from September 27-October 27 due to a retrograde backup. Now, you’re ready to move forward. In the weeks ahead, thinking in broad terms helps you see the bigger picture. You’ll be expanding your mind and your interests. Sharing your ideas and beliefs with enthusiasm can also figure strongly. You seek to understand your life and the world around you. Studies or topics of interest that you may have put on the shelf last month now move forward. It’s a wonderful cycle for an optimistic frame of mind. Today, people might turn to you for care or guidance, and you’re especially responsive or approachable. There can be something about you that draws others in, perhaps to confide in you or for helpful information. Your gentle approach encourages people to open up.
