Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can be eager to take on an ambitious project or to take care of business today, dear Aries, but this could lead to overreaching, especially since your attention may be divided. It’s not especially easy to understand one another at times today. Still, it can lead to critical thinking or detours, but it can feel like night and day with the shift from understanding to disconnect. You do your best when reaching beyond your usual bounds these days, so aim to deal with fears of change to move past them. Later today, the Moon moves into your social sector, and you’re more inclined to focus on longer-term happiness goals, dreams, and hopes.
TaurusThe Moon in your spirit sector sets your sights high, dear Taurus, and when it moves to the top of your chart later today, you’ll be reaching even further than usual. Still, there can be times when you feel out of sync today, making it a good idea to plan ahead. Of course, unexpected matters can occur whether or not you make plans, but having a priority list can help. Communications can go awry, or you’re easily distracted. Decisions should not be rushed. Aim to build your strength and confidence before drawing a conclusion. While there can be some confusing signals coming from someone close to you, once past it, you can feel stronger.
GeminiA good part of you is focused on making peace these days, but another part wants to deep-dive into problem areas, dear Gemini. Today, you stand to learn a lot, even if there could be some frustration in your communications. If a matter is leading to a dead-end, you may need to investigate your alternatives. Just be careful not to jump into (or out of) something due to current frustrations. Today’s tensions are likely to be temporary. Secrets can surface, but you’re learning to let go of the past in helpful ways, and this can even feel empowering and purging. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you could grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness.
CancerWork, health, and service issues are active on your mind now, dear Cancer, and ultimately, it’s about making valuable changes. There may be a change of plans or other surprise elements that can be disconcerting at first but may lead to a better place or position. If you’re falling behind in a project, try to set aside some time to be alone or put yourself in a setting with limited distractions. You may be dealing with impatience and nervousness in others, but you may decide to walk away from it until things quiet down. Consider ways to keep yourself absorbed in things you love doing so that you are not as vulnerable to the ups and downs of your social life. This way, you embrace a greater sense of peace.
LeoThere could be minor understandings today, dear Leo. A change of plans or opinions can throw you off slightly. You might aim to avoid snap decisions and learn from differences rather than simply react to them. If you need time to sort things out, take it, or do your best to avoid distractions. New attractions and desires can abound today but may not settle in for the long term. Emotional outbursts, rebelliousness, or impulsiveness are tendencies now if under stress. Take a deep breath and try to tackle things one at a time, step by step. Fortunately, a little disorganization today can lead to a stronger commitment to getting back on track.
VirgoThere can be minor problems feeling understood today, dear Virgo, and you could be a little jittery as a result. They could delay realizing your goals, but consider that there may be some method in the madness. For example, a change of plans could lead to something better. The tendency to be easily distracted and a little spaced out is strong, so aim to be more alert and cautious than usual and manage restless energy as best as you can. Don’t let impatience rule! A difference of opinion could get you more riled up than usual under these conditions. Happily, feeling a little out of step tends to motivate you to get more organized and productive as the day advances.
LibraOthers can misunderstand you or challenge your ideas and plans today, dear Libra. There may be changes in plans to manage, or news could arrive that requires a rethinking of a recent endeavor or adjustment of your schedule. Even though they can be frustrating, events today can bring you to a better understanding of your mind or plans. They can also motivate you to tune out distractions and be more productive. People in your life can be exasperating yet inspirational, as well. Others tend to appreciate your efforts most today when you don’t seem to be looking for praise. If you’re bored with the routine of things, you might decide to use unusual methods to shake things up.
ScorpioYou could find that certain choices and decisions are tricky today, dear Scorpio, especially if your schedule is too chaotic. It can be hard to find the time to sort things out. When it comes to your money and valuables, avoid a hasty approach, as there can be a tendency to forget or overlook important details. Or, mental strain can keep you on the fence about a matter or a person in your life. You’re probably better off remaining undecided until you have further information. Quick judgments are unlikely to serve you well at the moment. Aim to catch your breath and de-stress. Especially later today, quiet time is helpful with the Moon’s move into your home sector.
SagittariusThe Moon begins the day in your solar second house, dear Sagittarius, continuing to draw out your desire for comfort and familiarity. It’s a time for grounding yourself. As the day advances, life gets a little busier, or perhaps it’s about your craving for something more. Life doesn’t feel very organized in spots today, and you may need to adapt to this. Tensions may stem from worries about the things you haven’t done. You could feel a little scattered if you have far too much to do but are at a loss regarding where to begin. You might also have a strong feeling that work and daily routines are weighing you down when you’d much rather take part in more free-form activities.
CapricornYou’ve been making significant internal changes recently, dear Capricorn, and you’re considering ways to break free of past restrictions. It’s important prep work for next month when there will be more planetary activity in your sign. However, with a Mercury-Uranus aspect, communications can be imperfect or imperfectly delivered today. It may be best to relax and manage things step by step. A scattered approach will only serve to push up anxiety levels. The Moon continues to transit your sign and then moves on, putting you in the forefront for much of the day. Emotions run on the high side, but you are in control.
AquariusThinking can be a little scattered today, dear Aquarius, and it can be challenging to get a straight answer. However, the day has a way of pulling things out into the open, and while that can sometimes feel a little messy, it’s ultimately revealing and valuable. If you experience a sudden lack of steam in a relationship or project, know that it’s likely temporary. You may need to be on the fence about something, mulling things over, just for the moment. It can leave you feeling divided or drained, but it can also help you gain perspective. Aim to enjoy new insights and play with new ideas, but look before you leap. You are better off with quiet, productive activities for the first part of the day. Emotional retreat in some form seems appropriate. You will likely come into your own later today when the Moon enters your sign.
PiscesToday holds some scattered energy, dear Pisces, but it may very well lead to a stronger commitment to getting organized. You might receive advice that bothers you but consider that it could be useful in bits and pieces, and a more rounded decision can result, even if you don’t take the advice! Do your best to work on problem areas or take a step back so that you can look at a relationship or concern objectively. Chances are, the problems can be fixed with a bit of patience. While it’s not easy to understand one another, it can lead to interesting detours. It makes sense to try to get to the root of any unusual desires that come over you now, as they may simply be a symptom of the need for a slight change.
