Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could experience some discomfort related to your more profound emotions, attractions, and attachments today, dear Aries, with the Sun in your intimacy sector in a minor challenging aspect to Chiron in your sign. Consider it a signal to give your heart a little more time on a matter. With retrograde Mars square Neptune as well, slowing down and reorienting yourself is important. Direction or guidance may be lacking just for now. The Moon heads into your partnership sector for a stay of over two days, and you’re seeking the security of others’ company. Later today is good for soaking in information, updating your knowledge, and training or studying.
TaurusSupport or direction may be missing early today, dear Taurus, and motivation levels can suffer temporarily. Insecurities or uncertainties can disrupt your routines or mood. Still, as the day advances, you tend to focus on getting to the heart of a matter, and this focus does you some good. 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 help you realign yourself. You have a remarkable eye for imbalances later today, and you can accomplish a lot when it comes to bringing things back to order.
GeminiMotivation levels can leave much to be desired early today, dear Gemini. Insecurities or uncertainties can disrupt your routines or mood, perhaps leaving you feeling a bit under the weather. Watch that you’re taking actions that serve you well because with Mars retrograde in your sign and challenged by Neptune today, others could be misunderstanding you. The Moon moves into your sector of joy today, where it will stay for over two days, and you connect with your need to enjoy and express yourself. This comes more naturally as the day advances. Light entertainment is in order–it’s a good way to detox emotionally.
CancerIt’s not straightforward to express yourself or to be open and natural in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. Current transits can leave you second-guessing yourself or a situation. You might also sense that others are not receiving you warmly or that something is just a little off. It’s likely more about insecurities than the reality of a situation. In truth, you may only be reorienting yourself, ultimately going in a more productive direction. As the day advances, it’s easier to move through or out of the fog. The Moon heads into your sector of home and family for a stay of over two days, and you’re ready to settle things down. Comforting and familiar activities boost your mood. Your desire to slow down and nest takes over.
LeoThe Moon heads into your communications sector, dear Leo, stimulating your curiosity and need for variety. Still, you could feel overwhelmed with tasks in the first half of the day. You may need to accommodate a distraction or some demotivation before pushing forward. It probably won’t pay to make waves because 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. Part of you wants to break out of confining situations, but this desire is at odds with a need to stay close to the hearth. As the day advances, you find it enjoyable to immerse yourself in conversation or special interests. Possibilities seem to open up.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your resources sector for a stay of over two days, dear Virgo, and you’re inclined to want to play things safe. You prefer a steady pace, but your mood could take you on a bit of a ride in the first half of the day. You could teeter between wanting to keep things light and straightforward and craving more depth and meaning from your interactions. Still, as the day advances, you’re far less sensitive to what others may think or do, increasing your ability to concentrate. It becomes quite natural to center yourself and build your strength or sense of security. Grounding, earthy, comforting, and familiar activities appeal and benefit you most.
LibraThe first half of the day can have a somewhat disorienting quality, dear Libra, with retrograde Mars conflicting with Neptune. It’s best to watch for wishful thinking that interferes with your thinking process and decision-making. You could feel worn down if you’ve ignored your need for inspiration. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime. As the day advances, you see the value of tuning out such distractions, seeing them as transient and not very impactful. The Moon heads into your sign today for a stay of just over two days. Being mentally busy and learning new things is incredibly satisfying–you may be seeking creative ways to satisfy your need for movement and variety.
ScorpioYou could feel a little restless or off-center in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. This temporary lull slows you down long enough to explore alternate routes, ultimately leading to helpful adjustments. A dip in confidence may help you see flaws in a plan, but it is important to avoid dwelling on them for too long. After a brief spell of feeling doubtful or unmotivated, you’ll find it easy to tune out the non-essential and enjoy a more focused, purposeful approach to the day. Nevertheless, the Moon moves into your privacy sector, and it’s a good time to wind down and take more time to process. You’ll find the day rewarding for connecting with your inner world or loved ones.
SagittariusWith a Mars-Neptune square influencing the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, there could be a temporary deflation. Ultimately, a dip now can increase your ambition and motivation levels later–you may need to do some reorganizing to get back on track. People around you can be pretty self-involved, or something left hanging can weigh on your mind. It gets easier to tune out the distractions or noise and work on your goals as the day advances. You might want to avoid new beginnings, making waves, or essential decisions until confidence returns and timing improves. Others find you particularly interesting, and you’re more convincing than usual.
CapricornIn the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, you can experience some waning motivation levels. Insecurities or matters left hanging can take over your thoughts temporarily, but they’re easy to let go of as the day progresses. While early day can find you wrestling with doubt, or circumstances seem to test your vulnerabilities, you can move beyond this, or you get the chance to sort everything out to your advantage as the day advances. Aim to identify areas within you that may be preventing you from claiming happiness. Avoid people-pleasing, but consider that certain feedback you receive might be valuable. For best results, aim to let in some room for inspiration and imagination. It’s a good time to take a break from the usual mental routine and let your mind wander.
AquariusMoods can be up and down in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, and you may need emotional replenishment. It’s best to rest and reflect before moving something forward. Reorienting yourself makes the most sense with retrograde Mars square Neptune, fogging things up a little. There can be doubts to manage, but slowing down and some hesitation can help you find yourself. You may need to let others know your limits if they’re pushing you. Criticism is harder to take than usual! As the day advances, it’s easier to pull yourself out of a funk and learn from it. The Moon moves into harmony with your sign today, encouraging natural self-expression. You’re connecting with your need for happiness, whether this is about a cause, a relationship, or personal interest.
PiscesMotivation levels can dip in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, with retrograde Mars clashing with Neptune. It’s difficult to access guidance, and temporarily, connecting with your intuition isn’t straightforward. Take your time and aim to learn more about what your desires before making big moves. A brief dip in your faith or enthusiasm for a matter is possible, but this interruption can help reorient you. As the day progresses, your confidence builds. There is much to absorb and take in–you’re doing more problem-solving, list-making, and sorting things out.
