Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Lunar Eclipse can come as a reminder or turning point, dear Aries, related to your money, values, valuables, resources, and talents — in other words, your greatest assets, material or otherwise. Discoveries are possible now, or there is a significant revelation about your finances or business that demands some action. It’s the first eclipse in a set that affects your money and sharing axis until October 2023! Unrest or discontent stirred now can get the ball rolling for making essential changes with how you make, spend, and share your money and talents or other resources. Your attitude towards money, personal things, valuables, and income will transform in the coming two years. By the time this theme completes, you’ll likely be more in charge in these areas of your life. Ultimately, it’s about bringing more predictability to key areas of your life. Today, people around you may seem hard to please, but it may also simply be a reflection of your own unrest. The tendency to overindulge is with you now until you recognize this. Consider your feelings, but try not to let them distract you from your goals, unless, of course, you need and can take a break.
TaurusToday’s Lunar Eclipse occurs in your sign, dear Taurus, and there can be a watershed moment or a personal matter coming to a head. Recognizing strong feelings on an issue can set you on a new path. You’re making incredible discoveries about your life plan, body, and attitude/outlook now and even in the months ahead. In fact, this lunation marks the beginning of an eclipse set that will continue for another two years! You’ll be exploring matters of independence and interdependence now and until October 2023. Emotions, feelings, and revelations now are pivotal–they get the ball rolling. Even with inner contradictions likely now, it’s a time for recognizing a need for positive change. Keeping in mind that sudden urges and desires may be more about internal unrest than emotional truth today, it makes sense to take more time to arrive at conclusions. You may be embracing the joy of independence, or if you could do with an attitude makeover, this is the time. Watch today for misjudgments about people–you could crave company but then itch for some freedom or vice versa. Feelings are contradictory for now, and it’s just fine to try to make sense of them but avoid making impactful decisions based on the perceptions of the moment.
GeminiToday’s Lunar Eclipse can serve as a reminder to slow down if you’ve been pushing yourself too hard, dear Gemini. Feelings about a past issue become undeniable, or a previously hidden or secret matter unearths. In the weeks ahead, you might decide to embrace or let go of a situation, relationship, or powerful feeling instead of staying on the fence. This eclipse is the first of an eclipse set that challenges you to correct your work-rest balance in the coming two years. It can mark a turning point related to a work or health matter. You become actively aware of the need to take time to recoup, balancing attention to your physical health with care of your emotional health. It can also be a time of great hunches and intense awareness of situations that no longer work for you and need to change going forward. It’s not the time to make sweeping decisions, however. Instead, this is a time for recognizing your feelings, instincts, and hunches and then gradually letting a plan to handle things unfold. Also today, as much as you’d like to be productive, there can be problems sticking to any particular idea or path. This is likely the result of competing tastes and interests that are difficult to manage. It may be that you need to take a short breather from a current project so that you come back at it with fresh ideas. The Moon’s move into your sign today can certainly wake you up, motivating you to connect to the world around you in meaningful ways.
CancerToday’s Lunar Eclipse can point to sudden involvement with others, dear Cancer, perhaps a friendship matter coming to a head. It’s a time of revelations, unveilings, and important discoveries. This lunation marks the start of an eclipse set that brings new themes to your life for the coming two years! You’ll be seeing your friendships, connections, and happiness goals in a whole new way. You’re awakening to a need for kindred spirits, more involvement with friends or the community, and self-expression through creative mediums. This eclipse has a way of turning your attention to areas of your life that have become dysfunctional or unsatisfactory. The set challenges you to balance your attention to your personal life with outside responsibilities. If you’ve been paying too much attention to a love affair to a point that friendships are suffering, for example, you’ll begin to see the need to make changes. You might experience the sudden need to support someone or a culmination of a friendship matter, group project, or romantic relationship. You are in demand now! Also today, it can be a challenge getting going on any one particular endeavor just for now. You might also question whether you’re appreciated or valued by others. However, it may be that you’re concentrating too much on differences and problem areas and overlooking the good things in the process. Consciously looking for the silver linings may help.
LeoToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring revelations related to your career, responsibilities, or your general life path, dear Leo. Discoveries made now can be emotionally-charged. You may even discover or awaken to a dream job or path that motivates you in a new direction. Because this eclipse belongs to a set that will fall in a particular sign axis over the coming two years, it’s the first of many cosmic pushes towards a better balance between your home and working life, professional and personal life, attention to performance, and attention to quiet. You may be in the position to show off your professional and responsible side, or there may be revelations about your responsibilities. Watch for displays, as they can be more public and impactful now than you expect. Today, the Sun and Venus in minor challenging aspect with one another can point to minor problems surfacing in your interactions. The problems creeping up are likely to be those you thought were behind you but instead are still operating in a hidden way. Explore your feelings now, but try not to let discrepancies or socially awkward moments impact your big decisions.
VirgoToday’s Lunar Eclipse reminds you of your need for inspiration and your spirit for adventure, dear Virgo. Buried feelings need some form of release, and epiphanies can be significant. Announcements, awards, or completed projects can generate quite a bit of attention. While you could feel overwhelmed with what you need to learn, do, or understand at this time, discontent now can spur you to make meaningful improvements. If you’ve been ignoring your needs for mind expansion, then circumstances now tend to force the issue. An idea that you’ve been toying with may blossom now. This eclipse is powerful for gaining perspective on a matter relating to communications, connections, education, travel, sense of adventure, and your urge to truly live and experience things rather than go through the motions. Your worldview is changing, and this affects your choices, decisions, and path forward. This eclipse introduces a new theme into your life that will stick with you for the coming two years! It’s about communicating, transit, getting to where you want to go, and exploring ideas and beliefs. For now, take your time to process and digest new information coming your way.
LibraToday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse brings illumination or culmination to a matter related to finances or close relationships, dear Libra. True feelings emerge, or epiphanies happen related to sharing, give and take, power dynamics, ownership, intimacy, and finances. You may be dealing with inflated feelings about a person, relationship, or situation, and this theme is likely to recur going forward. In fact, this eclipse is the first in a set of eclipses that sets off a new two-year cycle for you related to money and sharing. Events and realizations occurring now set the ball rolling. A debt owed or coming through to you can require attention, or an event that puts you in a position to defend and honor your worth and value might emerge now. Going forward, you’ll be making changes to the ways you depend on others. If hidden problems or other tensions surface with people close to you today, try not to make too much of it. In fact, it can be helpful to know about problems before they grow further.
ScorpioThe Lunar Eclipse today can prompt a coming to terms with your feelings for someone, dear Scorpio, or recognizing needs you’ve overlooked or brushed aside. This eclipse is the first of several directly affecting your sign for the coming two years. As this series prompts an exploration of partnering and independence in your life, the discoveries you’re bound to make are likely to be highly significant. If feelings of discontent magnify right now, they help motivate you to make improvements. Partnerships are changing, and this is a time when your needs for others become more apparent. As you explore your needs for relationship and independence in the coming two years, these things will sometimes seem pitted against one another until you find a balance. Events and feelings occurring now seem to get the ball rolling. Some partnership drama is possible. Listen to your feelings but don’t make decisions while distracted — wait it out. Today, it can be difficult getting yourself going on any one thing wholeheartedly, mainly due to distractions and emotional states. It’s temporary.
SagittariusToday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse signals that eclipses are transitioning out of your sign axis, dear Sagittarius. There will be one more eclipse in Sagittarius in early December, but the one today sets up a new theme for the coming two years. It’s likely to pull up some discontent and dissatisfaction in the moment, but it’s also good for motivating you to make improvements. Work, health, and routines or habits come into strong focus now. There can be a bit of a scramble to get your life into better working order, and the benefits of doing so are significant. You’ll be doing a lot of balancing of work/rest and emotional health and physical health in the next couple of years, and realizations occurring now can spur this process along. With all Full Moons, seek out balance and compromise, and for this one, give special consideration to what’s healthy for you, both mentally and physically. Knowing your heart about a matter will always help, and that’s what today’s lunation will help reveal. Desires can come on with great force, and while you should certainly listen to them, take your time with their pursuit, as emotions are heightened, and it can be difficult to be objective. Aim to be moderate.
CapricornToday’s Lunar Eclipse brings a new and strong theme into your life related to romance, creativity, children, or hobbies, dear Capricorn. A big turning point can happen in your social life or with a creative project. It’s a time for shedding some of your inhibitions and listening to your heart, but it’s best to take your time before jumping into action. Your true feelings about a person, romance, or project can come on like a flood and can change everything! For some, letting something go makes room for a rush of new creativity flowing. You’ll be seeking your joy in the coming two years, and from epiphanies that get the ball rolling now, a mission to improve your life can emerge. Today’s eclipse can illuminate feelings and matters surrounding friends, romance, and personal goals, and there can be an epiphany or a compelling urge to create, share, and express yourself. Today, do your best to avoid letting your ego rule your actions, as you are especially sensitive to being left out or not appreciated. Your emotions can be up and down if you pay too much attention to how others are (or are not) responding to you.
AquariusEmotions run high with a Lunar Eclipse occurring early today, dear Aquarius. This potent Full Moon is powerful for realizations and feelings related to home, family, and safety or security. In turn, these feelings prompt you to make changes and improvements in the weeks following. This eclipse can be about recognizing your need for family, or it’s a call to action as your personal life needs some attention. It stirs feeling about living conditions or arrangements, personal life, emotional world, home, or family. Finding a better balance between your professional and personal life is a growing theme in your life now and in the coming two years, and this eclipse can get the ball rolling. There may be home repairs, moves, family drama, or changing living conditions in some cases. Alternatively, you’ll now see previously hidden or overlooked matters, and you’re gaining new insight and a positive, fresh direction. For now, if you’re on the fence, consider keeping it that way and deferring decisions to a later date. In order to send out a positive message that receives positive attention, get in touch with your needs and desires, as you may not know exactly what it is you are striving toward temporarily.
PiscesToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a sudden awareness of the need to take better care of your daily affairs, dear Pisces. There can be deadlines and realities of paperwork or errands to deal with now. It’s best to balance logic and emotion, being firm and genuine while avoiding hasty words and moves. This eclipse stimulates your senses and can lead to a revelation. Whatever develops now is meant to push you forward, even if at first it slows you down. Watch out for processing too much information or sensory overload, aiming to be discriminating with what you take in. Note that this is the first in an eclipse set that will stick with you for the coming two years. This set brings challenges and rewards to your communication or transportation systems, beliefs, education, sense of adventure, and mental world. Events around now seem to get the ball rolling with this new and emerging theme in your life. Also today, it seems easier to see differences than similarities in your relationships, which can put you in a somewhat cranky mood. People can rub you the wrong way, but you can also be a little more sensitive than usual.
