Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt’s a busy time when you’re particularly resourceful, dear Aries, and you might strengthen a bond with someone special today. Making extra time to comment or express yourself is rewarding. The Moon heads into your communications sector, and you’re more inclined to want to reach out or exchange ideas. Mental disconnects or doubts later today might slow you down, but it’s a good idea to take things cautiously at the moment. There can be some fuzzy thinking right now with Mercury changing directions. You are on the road to clearer thinking with Mercury’s direct turn tomorrow, but now and the next couple of days, it’s best to watch for misleading communications and draw on patience. Answers are around the corner but not yet ready.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your solar second house today, dear Taurus, there’s a bigger focus on your possessions, money, business, or comfort matters for a couple of days. You’re seeking a little more predictability and security. Transits today tend to draw out your practical side. It can be difficult focusing on priorities later today, but you stand to learn a lot by observation. After three weeks of retrograde motion, the planet of communication and the mind, Mercury, turns direct tomorrow. Complications and indecisiveness will start clearing up slowly but surely as Mercury moves back over its previously covered ground. Projects that were left hanging can begin to come together after Mercury’s direct turn in the days ahead, but during the shift, you can be in limbo. Take things easy for now. It’s important to keep an eye out for errors and miscommunications.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Gemini, and will visit Gemini until Wednesday. Emotional urges tend to override most other concerns. Others see you in a particularly attractive light as the Moon harmonizes with Venus in your romantic, creative fifth house. Your need to be understood and acknowledged is strong today. You may feel that you’re still in the dark about whether a relationship is moving forward. You may not have a specific goal, but one is likely to form or become clearer in the coming weeks. With Mercury moving towards a station in your romance sector, it’s not the best time to make final decisions or commitments about your leisure time, love life, or creative pursuits. Misunderstandings and mixups usually associated with retrograde Mercury are more likely with the shift occurring today and tomorrow. Important decisions should probably wait, and if you’re looking for clarity about a situation or relationship, it’s best to be patient and give things more time.
CancerYou may feel a stronger need for private time or extra time to regroup emotionally with the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house today, dear Cancer. You’ll be exploring your inner world and laying low for a couple of days, which can be beneficial. Taking things easy makes sense and is fortifying today. You’re seeking better or more comfortable living conditions and arrangements. There can be a tendency for mental disconnects to occur with Mercury heading toward a station, making it best to think twice before communicating. While clarity is not likely just now, it’s around the corner with Mercury turning direct tomorrow. Family matters, love, and creative pursuits may be moving forward in the coming weeks. If you can’t escape tasks that require focus and concentration today, work hard at paying extra attention. Try your best to go with the flow now.
LeoYou’d prefer to cooperate than compete with the Moon’s move into your solar eleventh house today, dear Leo, where it will transit until Wednesday. It’s a good time of the lunar month to embrace your happiness goals. You want to explore different options today. Nevertheless, it would be wise to avoid coming to quick conclusions. It may not be easy to get the right message across, or you feel somewhat scattered on a mental level. Worries can predominate. While you should probably wait and see before drawing definite conclusions, you might gain a stronger sense of your own opinion through your interactions. While you are unlikely to get solid answers from anyone right now, this may very well push you to let your intuition work for you. Mercury moves to a station and turns direct tomorrow, and you’ll start seeing positive movement on important projects in your life, particularly related to communications and transportation.
VirgoWith the Moon’s move into your solar tenth house for a couple of days, dear Virgo, it may be a better time to follow the rules and do what others expect of you than break out on a new path just for now. Still, within these bounds, you can accomplish something worth your time. At this time of the lunar month, you connect with your priorities, which you take more seriously. It’s a good time to get back on track if you’ve veered a little off course. Nevertheless, later today, there can be some mental disconnects, or you can feel under pressure as you wait for an answer. Aim for moderation. If you can, avoid work or chores that require a lot of focus or attention to detail with Mercury moving to its station. It’s a transitional day that requires some level of detachment. With Mercury turning direct tomorrow, you’ll see forward motion on stalled projects in the coming weeks, particularly related to business and money.
LibraThe Moon heads into your solar ninth house for a couple of days, dear Libra, and you’re inclined to want to share your viewpoint or good spirits. The desire to pull out of yourself comes on strongly. People enjoy being around you, or they’re especially attracted to your ideas. Even so, a conversation, awareness of a flaw, or criticism can throw you slightly off-center now as Mercury heads to a station and a Mercury-Saturn aspect hangs heavily in the cosmic atmosphere. Nevertheless, things are turning around, and clarity is around the corner. Aim to take your time coming to conclusions. Don’t feel any pressure to make statements or commitments now, as they’re unlikely to work entirely in your favor. With Mercury in your sign, people are more inclined to hold you accountable for what you say, so choose your words wisely today. While you’ll enjoy seeing forward motion in your projects in the coming weeks, today you may feel somewhat in limbo.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, stimulating deep feelings and reminding you of your attachments. The Moon’s trine to Venus, currently transiting your privacy sector, suggests pleasure with behind the scenes activities or a special enjoyment of connecting with your inner world. You’re inclined to observe and analyze. Second-guessing your perceptions can lead to some indecision today with Mercury’s current condition. Communications can be a little confusing right now, but the good news is that Mercury is turning direct after three weeks of retrograde motion, and projects that have stalled will begin to move forward. During this shift, confused communications, directions, and plans are still possible and, in fact, more pronounced, so be as clear as possible or put serious discussions on hold just for the time being. It’s a transitional day, but a few misunderstandings are not enough to bring you down.
SagittariusThe Moon leaves your work and health sector, entering your partnership sector where it will transit until Wednesday, dear Sagittarius. Relationships and your social needs come into stronger focus, and you’re seeking more balance and perhaps some feedback. A theme of cooperation, friendliness, and openness is with you, although it can be difficult to relax your mind in spots due to Mercury’s current condition. It may be best to avoid setting things in stone. Aim to take your time digesting everything before making conclusions. You might choose to avoid important conversations or sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating. Problems with getting your message across clearly in recent weeks are set to go away with Mercury ending its retrograde tomorrow. Today, keep things simple for best results since, during this shift, there can be some confusion or chaotic energy.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your solar sixth house of work and health for a couple of days, dear Capricorn. You can feel driven to take care of the little problems and details of your daily life. It’s rather easy to be productive, and a sense of purpose becomes you. You’re a little more focused than usual on your duties. Over the coming week, information can come to light that helps you advance, an answer comes, or lost items are found. Mercury is about to station, however, and in the meantime, you can feel too overwhelmed with information to make good decisions. The types of mixups and misunderstandings associated with retrograde Mercury cycles are more likely to occur around its station, making today and tomorrow particularly vulnerable for confusion or errors. Try to keep things light right now.
AquariusWith the Moon’s move into your solar fifth house for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, creative or expressive pursuits are in focus and favor. Your sense of harmony and balance is strong. Social confidence strengthens, and an improved personal outlook becomes you. You’re paying more attention to self-expression, creativity, fun, romance, pleasure, and leisure or entertainment. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. Still, it may be best to avoid making big decisions now with Mercury, the planet of communications and the mind, about to station and in conflict with Saturn. If there are misunderstandings now, they are likely to clear in the coming week. Communication or transportation challenges may be prominent with this shift, but you’ll enjoy more straightforward directions and clarity of purpose shortly.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your solar fourth house of home, family, and the soul, dear Pisces, and you crave more calm and comfort. You may seek more balance in your personal life or domestic world. Pleasurable, restful, and simple activities are in favor. Note that Mercury turns direct tomorrow, and while it’s a welcome shift, the transition itself today and tomorrow can be tricky. Mercury is heavily aspected by Saturn at this turnaround, adding a worried or stressed theme to your thoughts at this time. Articulate yourself with care, or save important conversations for a warmer or clearer time. It may be better to go with the flow than make waves on this transitional day. Be aware of the tendency for confusing communications, mixups, and misunderstandings.
