Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Moon at the top of your solar chart continuing in the first part of the day, dear Aries, you are more likely to be in the spotlight, noticed, and perhaps quite in demand. You’re in a goal-oriented frame of mind, but you could wrestle with conflicting needs and approaches. With Venus under challenge today, relationships may suffer from some poor timing or grumpiness. It may be better to detach yourself a little so that you can gain a new perspective. People may not be receptive enough to cooperate efficiently so that independent work is favored. Rethink your strategies but don’t over-analyze emotions just for now. Mixed signals are possible, but this also means you’re tuning into multiple levels of a situation, and you can quickly adapt to changing needs if you choose. Aim to cut out distractions as much as possible.
TaurusThe Moon continues its transit of your sector of spirit and adventure for the first part of the day, dear Taurus, inspiring an attitude that there’s something more to enjoy, learn, or explore. Later today, though, the Moon reaches the top of your solar chart, and your thinking is more goal-focused. On an emotional level, your need for structure comes on strong. Still, people can be on the defensive, or tensions with restrictions or rules can play with your mood. You may see the downside of a situation, and this helps you weigh its pros and cons. Concerns or worries about money, relationships, work, or legal matters can take hold. Resolve to take a lesson from experiences encountered now, even if criticism surfaces. Transits today tend to highlight different drives, needs, and approaches, leading to a bit of indecision. You can feel divided since a good part of you is focused on fixing practical problems, while another part is far more socially-oriented.
GeminiYou’re especially interested in the many different layers of situations, people, and your own emotions today, dear Gemini. You may be a little less patient with trivial matters or superficialities. You might wrestle with expectations and perceptions in your relationships or with finances, however. There could be feelings of being excluded or distanced early day. If others seem unsympathetic, find ways to rely on yourself for now. Cooperation may not be straightforward, but you may discover that you can handle a matter just fine on your own. A feeling of being “on the fence” is likely, but waiting to make a decision is a good idea. Try to focus on positive, productive tasks despite distractions and some inconsistencies.
CancerYou benefit from seeing your life from a different angle or perspective today, dear Cancer. The day seems to draw more attention to the contrasts in your life, including your varied needs and approaches in different life departments. The Moon moves from your partnership sector to your intimacy sector, and you take more interest in getting to the heart of a matter than scratching the surface or keeping the peace. There can be some concerns about pleasing everyone in your life today. Aim instead to get a true sense of what you want and what you should do instead of worrying about extending yourself more than that. You might discover that you’ve been putting too much energy into something that only serves to drag you down. Adjustments are necessary if this is the case. There can be some see-sawing, with decisions rather hard to come by temporarily.
LeoThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector for the first part of the day, dear Leo, and you’re focused on making sense of things or fixing problems. Later today, your focus turns to more easygoing pursuits. Today’s transits tend to call attention to the contrasts in your life. You have a strong desire to settle in and focus, but your curiosity is big, and it can keep you more connected than focused if you don’t consciously tame it. Getting your message across socially can be challenging with blockages or restrictions in play that mainly relate to chores and responsibilities. While a little dry in spots, days like today are useful for finding your own way, making yourself happy instead of relying on others or circumstances, and getting things done. Look for ways to improve your daily life and routines, work, and projects. This way, they won’t interfere with downtime when you need it.
VirgoCreative and interesting pursuits continue to hold a special draw today, dear Virgo. An emotional focus on personal enjoyment, self-expression, and pleasure continues in the first part of the day, but later, the Moon heads into your work and health sector. You’d prefer to roll up your sleeves and get down to business. Still, it’s best not to overthink. Small misunderstandings can occur, and you may be more sensitive than usual to areas where you’ve been restricted. Insecurities could arise, and the need to be shown that you’re respected and valued is strong. You may need to nurse your feelings for a bit before picking yourself back up, which can be useful. Watch for letting far too much in at the expense of your sense of contentment. Part of you only wants to simplify and pull back, but another part is intensely curious these days, which can distract you. It can be challenging to recognize which activities serve you well and which ones subtract from your fun, but it’s useful to try.
LibraThe Moon continues its transit of your home and family sector in the first part of the day, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to stick with the familiar. You remain a little self-protective and withdrawn. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar fifth house, and you begin to feel more outgoing and confident about sharing yourself with others. Nevertheless, the day tends to highlight our differences or problems, requiring some adjustments. You can be indecisive as you wrestle with conflicting needs and approaches. Others may be unduly critical, but if so, you may very well bounce back in a stronger position. Insecurities and self-protectiveness can interrupt the regular flow of your interactions. You may be experiencing a stronger need for approval or attention, but others are too wrapped up in their issues to notice. Pulling yourself back or cooling off may do you good right now. Take the time for self-understanding. You can benefit greatly from centering yourself first and foremost.
ScorpioWhile the day’s not ideal for decisiveness, dear Scorpio, you might pick up a nice variety of useful information. The Moon moves through your communications sector in the first part of the day, and you’re quick to respond or connect, after which you’re far more inclined to zone out or take things easy, at least mentally. The day seems to highlight contrasts, and you become more aware of your different drives, needs, and approaches as a result. People can be harder to please, and a lack of natural flow makes it difficult to find satisfaction. It’s temporary, and the adjustments you make as a result can be useful to you, ultimately. Avoid signing on the dotted line, buying expensive items, or committing yourself to something half-heartedly. Consider that the more you strengthen weak areas, the easier it will be to bounce back from disappointments in the future. Introspection is very appropriate at this point, and you can benefit from some emotional space. People are noticing you more than usual, even with a lot going on under the surface. You’re friendly, but you’re keeping a lot more than usual to yourself.
SagittariusThe Moon continues its transit of your resources sector for the first part of the day, dear Sagittarius, and you seek a comfortable pace and emotional balance. The Moon later heads into your communications sector, firing up your curiosity. Special attention to practical affairs can go a long way towards improved well-being, but you can vacillate between wanting to get involved and preferring to stick with the familiar. You might decide to work on fixing problems so that you can enjoy yourself later. Take steps to cut back on areas where you’ve been overdoing, and it will feel good, ultimately. With some timing problems today, it’s not a good time to take things to heart. Keep things simple for best results, and find ways to reduce stress. If you can, leave the tougher decision-making for a time when you’re more confident and aware of what you truly want.
CapricornThe Moon continues to spend time in your sign for part of the day, dear Capricorn. You’re attracted to something a little different or non-routine today. This morning, managing expectations may be necessary. If someone important to you seems distant or disinterested, try to detach yourself and go about your own business. While recognition may be elusive for now, it’s better to focus on doing your best work for your own satisfaction. They’ll see it in time! Because there can be small disappointments and energy levels can dip temporarily, try not to take on too much. Decisions are not easy to make, even as the day advances, but leaving things open can be a good strategy just for now. You can feel a bit torn between looking for answers and enjoying the freedom of letting life unfold naturally. It may be best to avoid committing or limiting yourself.
AquariusThe day’s energies are better for winding down, dear Aquarius. Early today, you might feel somewhat stifled or limited by circumstances, and your desire for freedom is stronger than usual. People are not very forthcoming or receptive. Consider pulling back a little to assess your goals, particularly those related to your social life, love life, or educational pursuits. Give attention to small problems that help free you up for more exciting times ahead. Later today, the Moon enters your sign, and you begin to crave more interaction or action. There is nevertheless some tendency to feel divided since you’re both socially and practically inclined. If you can spend extra time free of interference so that you can do your own thing, you’ll benefit greatly.
PiscesMuch of the day, you’re in a friendly mood, dear Pisces, but you’re entirely ready to pull back and take some time to yourself as the day progresses. This is due to the Moon’s move from your social sector into your privacy sector later today. Today’s Sun-Venus aspect can seem to highlight needs that are at odds. Part of you wants to move on, but a more protective and contemplative side seems equally strong. Small misunderstandings can result from this. Others may not be on the same page as you at times. Current transits seem to stimulate insecurities, and poor timing can result. These are unlikely to be permanent blockages and may be useful if they redirect you to productive pursuits for a spell. It’s a time for assessing what may be standing in the way of joy, growth, and improvement.
