Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in a generally favorable period for harmony in close relationships, dear Aries, although there can be some conflict stirred to get to a purer level of peace. Today, areas that have been swept under the carpet can emerge in small ways. While your spirits are generally good today, it’s not the best time to see your relationships clearly. As well, you can easily get into a position where you’re doing so much for others that you feel a bit drained. If you’ve held to a fantasy of a relationship or situation, this can now pose some minor problems. You could experience some feelings of discomfort related to your more profound emotions, attractions, and attachments. If so, you might consider it a signal to give your heart a little more time on a matter. Patience will serve you best right now.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your work and health sector today, dear Taurus, you begin to focus more and more on the practical side of life. There can be minor confusing impressions and sensitivities or a feeling of being overwhelmed, however. It’s a time to reevaluate matters and allow yourself more time, not to drop or abandon a pursuit. A minor challenging aspect between Venus and Neptune can prompt you to prioritize your desire to keep the peace and maintain harmony today. It’s best not to go overboard with this, or else you could end up feeling misunderstood or unappreciated. You could instead feel let down by a broken promise. Don’t worry too much if you are a little out of sync with others or with your goals–it’s temporary. Look into ways to infuse more meaning, pleasure, or imagination into your work or chores. If you find yourself restlessly indulging or craving things, it may be that you need to get in better touch with your needs.
GeminiThe Moon heads into harmony with your sign today, dear Gemini, and emotional expression comes more naturally to you. Still, there is some tendency to see a situation the wrong way, especially if it’s too close to your heart, with Venus and Neptune in an awkward aspect. Wishful thinking can blur perceptions, particularly related to romance, business, and long-term planning. You are unlikely to be sure about making a significant commitment or decision, and it may be better to avoid overcompensating for feeling uncertain and instead make time for rest or time out. Consider that staying in a state of indecision over largely trivial matters can sometimes drain you of more energy than dealing with the consequences of a decision. Try to focus on what you feel good about doing and tune out what others think or say as much as possible. Consider that a temporary dip in motivation or spirits can be useful for realigning yourself.
CancerActivities with clear goals tend to fare well today, dear Cancer, but matters of the heart are not as straightforward. There can be some division due to uncertainty, which can leave you in an ambivalent state on a social level. The desire to do something different or unusual can be healthy, but your heart isn’t all in. You seek more peace and familiarity these days. Try not to stay on the fence for too long. You might find that staying in limbo is more draining than simply making a decision and living with it. There’s no use wasting energy worrying about the little things. For the big stuff, however, it’s best to wait things out. The Moon heads into your sector of home and family partway through the day, helping to tip the scales toward settling things down.
LeoYour practical goals have more power in the first half of the day, dear Leo. Self-improvement endeavors can be in active, positive focus, and so can activities related to health, work, and money. If you are feeling discontent on a social level, however, you’re likely to feel this more intensely as the day advances. Still, not knowing your heart today may tempt you to avoid the truth in your relationships. It’s probably better to admit uncertainty and move on for now. Otherwise, you could end up only spinning your wheels. There could be unspoken desires or a sense that you want something but can’t put your finger on what it is. Try not to allow distractions such as these to bring you down. Aim to take more time to get in touch with your needs. It’s a better time to keep things status quo than to push ahead. It probably won’t pay to make waves if confidence is dipping, or you don’t have all the tools you need to manage a situation. This is temporary and can help you reorient yourself.
VirgoThere can be odd desires or cravings that seem to come out of nowhere today, dear Virgo, along with a sense that you shouldn’t indulge. Two minor challenging aspects in play are not the most mature of energies, perhaps tempting you to escape responsibility, hide things about yourself, or appease when you should probably stand up for yourself. Still, the timing is not excellent, so if you are uncertain, ride things out until you are clearer. Yearnings can be hard to pinpoint. Keep watch for a tendency to focus on everything except what deserves your attention! Superficial attempts to make yourself feel better are unlikely to satisfy, and may even cost valuable time and energy, and possibly money. Even so, today’s energies are just fine for activities in which the goal is clear. The Moon leaves your sign today, moving into your solar second house for a couple of days, and turning your attention to what makes you comfortable and secure.
LibraYour inner world or private life can be in strong focus as you begin the day, dear Libra. The Moon later heads into your sign, and you seek more interactivity with the world around you. Desires can be sudden or unusual. Today’s Venus-Neptune quincunx makes it a fuzzy, uncertain time for decisions about love and money, however, especially as the day advances. Take care of yourself rather than doing everything for everyone else and forgetting what you need in the process. Avoid people-pleasing as a quick fix for achieving the peace and harmony you crave. Instead, aim to dream and let your intuition engage. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should probably avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime.
ScorpioWhile you can begin the day feeling rather interactive and craving connectivity, dear Scorpio, as the day advances, it can become clear that you need some relaxation. Venus is in your privacy sector these days, and you need time to process and digest recent experiences. Today, part of you is afraid of letting go of a fantasy or ideal, but unrealistic expectations can lead to discomfort. Vague dissatisfaction can weave in and out today. Needs that come on suddenly and that don’t make a whole lot of sense are probably things that only serve to lead you astray right now. Aim to connect with your true needs or work on your happiness rather than looking to others to bring you joy. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them is the key now. A temporary lull can also slow you down long enough to explore alternate routes. After a brief spell of feeling doubtful or unmotivated, you’ll find it easy to tune out the non-essential.
SagittariusWhile you can begin the day with a strong need to be productive, dear Sagittarius, you’re tuning into a need to connect with others in pressure-free ways as the day advances. On an emotional or sentimental level, minor challenging aspects today could leave you with a feeling that you’re not getting what you want. Look to address the root of a problem, but if you can’t seem to get at it, it may be wise to avoid going off on tangents. Try not to let yourself linger in limbo for too long today, especially for little problems. Rest and reflect when you can, or consider focusing on one special task at a time. Avoid brand new beginnings, making waves, or essential decisions until confidence returns and timing improves.
CapricornThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Capricorn, and your priorities come strongly to mind. Even so, minor challenging aspects in play suggest that it can be challenging to be as productive as you’d like to be. Venus at the top of your chart these days generally points to increased enjoyment of your work or duties, but there are times like today when you may need a break from performing. You might agree to something to please someone, then later regret that you weren’t straightforward. There can be benefits through your work or from others, but you might find that it costs too much, in the long run, to yield to others at the moment. Watch for misconceptions today. Circumstances seem to test your vulnerabilities, but you can move beyond this or you get the chance to sort everything out to your advantage later.
AquariusSocial or emotional distractions make it difficult to focus your energy in spots today, dear Aquarius. It’s not easy to see how you can practically manage everything you’d like to do–or where to begin. If you feel a little let down or in a frump, it may be that you need some emotional refreshment. However big your plans and ideas are at the moment, don’t be in a huge rush to put them into action until you feel fully confident about them. There can be vague problems or disconnects that may leave you feeling somewhat out of sync. Some confusion about money, resources, or know-how can subtly get in the way of personal enjoyment or the pursuit of a new interest. Today is more about winding down than pushing something forward. A bit of hesitation can help you find yourself.
PiscesToday’s Venus-Neptune transit can introduce some cause for hesitation or pause today, dear Pisces. A small bump in the road or a temporary dip in your confidence can help slow you down and reorient you. Try not to allow empathy to override your common sense, as there is some tendency to see what you want to see. Nevertheless, you may feel slightly out of sync with others, and the temptation might be to compensate by going out of your way to make them happy. It may be better to aim to learn your own needs rather than spend your time and drain your energy trying to figure out what others want. Aim to resolve outstanding issues if they’ve weighed you down, even if this is just about taking one or two steps towards your goals. As the day advances, you might gravitate to intense or involving activities as the Moon moves into your intimacy sector.
