Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, helping you rise above the little problems, dear Aries, and current transits suggest there can be more of these than usual. You might rather restlessly seek more enjoyment or meaning, but you should watch for unrealistic expectations. The tendency is to shoot a little too high or to chase things you don’t truly want or need. Relationship problems may magnify temporarily if expectations blow up. It may be better not to express your ideas or feelings too quickly. Draw upon your common sense for best results. You may very well open your mind to new experiences and possibilities but aim not to go too far with this. It’s better to reserve judgment until mental tension or the minor problems of daily life subside. You might get many different things done, but concentration or focus can be challenging temporarily.
TaurusWatch today for making too much of a situation, dear Taurus, as decisions can suffer. Aim to feed a restless spirit with a varied routine, conversation, or knowledge. Find a happy medium between filling your responsibilities and satisfying your desire for experience and excitement through drawing on patience and self-awareness. Mistakes made now are likely due to overblown expectations and lack of foresight. Promises aren’t easy to keep later. Current transits might steer you away from your priorities temporarily, or they can challenge your concentration or commitment just for now. You may only need to freshen up your mood with a change of pace or scenery. There can be problems conveying your message, or you seem to stir up some opposition with what you communicate later today. There can be clashes with others on views and opinions. Your responses to the opposition may surprise you and jumpstart your thinking.
GeminiWith today’s transits stimulating a tendency to go overboard, dear Gemini, it may be best to remind yourself of your usual limits and aim not to push them. There is a tendency to make promises that are hard to keep or statements that others take as more than they are. These things are resolvable–you might nip them in the bud with some mindfulness. You may want to shake things up a little and do something different, and current dissatisfaction can lead to important improvements. In truth, you may be divided on how much intensity you want from your activities or interactions. It’s not a day when you can expect the usual routine and everything to go exactly as planned with Mercury heading into opposition with Uranus. Watch for absent-mindedness. A surprising event or memory can grab your attention.
CancerThere can be some restlessness today, dear Cancer, which can lead you to seek new pleasures or make some changes and improvements. Or, it might lead you astray, so do watch for overblown expectations. Try not to push beyond your usual limits for best results. Someone’s perspective can be informative, but it’s better not to be swayed by promises or take too much to heart under current transits. Consider that communications can be brusque, and tension can lead to more errors. Watch for mistakes made from ignoring or glossing over details. The Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, making it important to find spots of time dedicated to productive activities regardless. If possible, schedule intensive, lengthy work for another day. You can feel a little scattered, making it difficult to follow or concentrate and focus on a mental level.
LeoYou may be tempted to take on too many projects or line up more activities than you can reasonably manage today, dear Leo. Making impactful decisions or promises based solely on the current mood can be a mistake. Keep your “future self” in mind by keeping things moderate. Procrastination can be an inclination, or you might end up spending a lot of time on something that holds little weight. Changes of plans or opposition might lead to something better or to the clarification of your views on a matter, even if these things are frustrating at first. The Moon spends the day in your sector of personal enjoyment, and some light entertainment might help you decompress on an emotional level. You can feel in tune creatively.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, dear Virgo, and activities that strengthen you emotionally are most helpful. It’s a time of the lunar month when you need to check in with your feelings and need for nurture, safety, and comfort. You can be enthusiastic about coming to an emotional understanding of yourself or someone important to you. Private and intimate matters prosper today. Still, today’s transits can too easily lead to jumping to conclusions or throwing yourself into situations without enough thought. Watch for impulsiveness with communications, money, and love. There is a tendency to be a little careless or overindulgent. While you should watch for making too much of a situation, the energies of the day may very well push you to try something new or to discover a new and improved method. You might overvalue something if you’re not careful.
LibraYou might experience a building desire to advance or enjoy something new or different, dear Libra. Today, you might end up only spinning your wheels, but it’s temporary. You can have good intentions to make improvements, but if things don’t run smoothly, you might lose interest quickly. Aim to moderate your expectations. It’s not the best day for productivity as the tendency is to overreach and lose inspiration far too easily. Center yourself and think about what’s missing, and then consider pacing yourself as you set out to pursue it. Be kind to your future self by taking it easy today. It’s wise not rush decisions and choices, particularly as the day advances and we’re heading toward a Mercury-Uranus opposition. While tensions are likely, you may come to a whole new perspective on a business or money matter through inventive thinking or the conversations that occur now.
ScorpioIt’s best not to feel pressure to start something too quickly today, dear Scorpio. Transits suggest strong enthusiasm but some lack of follow-through, discipline, or practicality. It’s temporary, but it’s also wise to pace yourself and keep things moderate. Speaking too soon on a matter can also be problematic, particularly as the day advances. Expansion can be a goal, and it’s within reach, but moderation is the key to success at the moment. You can certainly make an effort and take your chances, especially if it’s something you enjoy, but try not to take on too much to the point of overwhelming yourself. Today’s energies can challenge you to confront and manage emerging issues that have been swept under the carpet.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and you’re prioritizing your feelings and emotional needs. There is some tendency to overdo things or to push your limits today. You’re more sensitive to things that feel dull or meaningless, which can stir some restlessness. While you can certainly use this energy to make changes, for now, you could be seeing things in extremes, and it’s better to pace and moderate yourself. You may need to adjust to interruptions and distractions. If you aim to hold off on decisions now, then it’s a good time to stretch your imagination and consider new possibilities. Creative or recreational activities satisfy more than usual.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, and you seek more rest or time for reflection. While there is a retiring tendency with this transit, transits today are a bit disruptive. There is a tendency to overdo things and speak too quickly or too soon. Consider that even if you get what you want, it may not satisfy if you are not in touch with your true needs. Watch for acting out of character today, and steering clear of exaggeration is also wise. Self-restraint and patience can save the day, and you might enjoy yourself as you entertain new feelings or discover new pleasures. Aim to keep your perspective. Opposing ideas can be in stronger focus than usual, but interesting insights can emerge from further thinking or news.
AquariusIf a plan of action is missing today, restlessness can lead to mistakes, dear Aquarius. It’s better not to wing things too much and to watch for careless moves or words. If you have too many things to manage, you’re left with too little time to center yourself. It may be best to self-reflect and aim to understand what you truly need or want because missing the mark is a real possibility with today’s transits. Aim to avoid going over the top or jumping to conclusions. If you can keep things moderate, it can be a time for interesting new insights. You might recognize areas of your life that need an upgrade or refreshment. There can be some tension to navigate today, but there is a lot to learn from your interactions. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, reinforcing the theme of play and diversions.
PiscesToday’s transits are a bit chaotic, but they’re good for stretching your mind, dear Pisces. Consider that unrealistic expectations don’t do you any favors. Watch for going too far, chasing something that you may not genuinely want. With self-awareness, you might discover areas of your life that need an upgrade or special attention. A new perspective can emerge from the contrary theme of the day, or you might take an interesting detour. Restlessness stirred today can give some huge clues as to what may be missing from your life. However, it may be best that you avoid stretching yourself too thin. It might also be a challenge to say the right thing at the right time with Mercury heading into opposition to Uranus. It makes sense to be a bit more protective of information or feelings just for now due to an impulsive tendency.
