Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can be feeling motivated and inspired by your ideas, dear Aries. You might arrive at a fuller understanding of a long-standing problem. You might feel more confident about speaking your mind now, but consider that we can be a little hasty with self-expression today. A frank discussion might catapult you in a new direction, or it might motivate you to make positive changes. Today brings good energy for increased clarity, particularly about studies, communications, legal or publishing matters, or sharing your ideas. Details might fill in regarding any of these issues, offering you a new perspective. It’s a good time for making decisions and solving problems. Conversations, news, and thoughts can help you clear up misconceptions and make solid plans. Illumination can occur on a mental level today.
TaurusThe Sun and Mercury join forces today, dear Taurus, and you can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter. You’re mentally sharp, seeing details you may have missed or that weren’t available to you in the past. A critical conversation or observation may occur now, or more information on a financial matter can come to your attention, rounding out the picture. Especially with finances, intimacy, or research, there can be some valuable insights. Clearing the air can feel good, and arriving at a decision, even better! However, it’s best to avoid pushing too far with a topic or losing the emotion behind an issue today. While the intellect is sharp, your intuition needs a bit more time to kick in. Writing about your feelings can also be highly useful, leading to important realizations. It can also be a fine time for solving a mystery or problem. You’re so engaged and intrigued that you can spend a lot of time lost in thought or research. Some form of counseling or therapy, or less formally, a conversation about private matters with someone you trust, can figure strongly now.
GeminiThere can be significant conversations and clarifications through your interactions today, dear Gemini. Mental energy is intense and in the spotlight. You can be doing a lot of processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas today, and exchanges with someone can help jumpstart important thinking. While this can be quite positive overall, you may need to check in with your feelings before rushing ahead. Some emotional detachment can be pretty helpful now. Conversations seem to be very constructive, fair, and supportive. It may be a good idea to allow others to lead the discussions and listen carefully.
CancerToday is strong for making some important points and observations, dear Cancer. With the Sun and Mercury aligning in your work and services sector, you’re likely to see a matter more clearly. An idea can come to full bloom, and thoughts about your health, daily affairs, chores, or work can be insightful. You have much to gain from what you see and discover. Communication issues tend to dominate, temporarily taking a back seat to intuition and emotion, and it’s best to be aware of this. Observe, analyze, and take in, but give yourself time to process and digest before taking a new course of action. Consider what habits or routines can use some revamping so that you can make some plans and resolutions.
LeoThere can be a lot to talk and/or think about today, dear Leo, with the Sun and Mercury coming together. There’s a strong focus on your sector of love relationships, entertainment, pleasure, dating, and creativity, and mental excitement and interest are strong in these areas. It’s best to consider that your intuition on the matter hasn’t yet kicked in, but it’s a good time to learn new details about creative projects, relationships, or friends that help you solve problems and make decisions. A romantic revelation can figure strongly, and observations and discussions occurring at this time are likely to be significant. Expressing yourself figures strongly. It can be a time of an overdue conversation, clearing of the air, news, or sudden insight.
VirgoMeaningful conversations about or with family can be significant today, dear Virgo, as the Sun and Mercury join forces in your solar fourth house.

You’re interested in making improvements and arriving at better decisions. Mental activity is strong today, and you might particularly enjoy making plans, solving problems, and handling details. You’re taking pride in your ability to handle personal matters. As the day advances, a Mars-Neptune influence comes into play. Sharing ideas, ideals, and spiritual goals with someone can be rewarding — even a bonding experience.
LibraToday can be quite mentally charged, dear Libra. The Sun, Vesta, and Mercury join forces in your sector of communications, learning, and errands, and you can find yourself in high demand. It’s a good time for engaging in helpful conversations and arriving at interesting ideas. There can be an important discovery, epiphany, discussion, or a clearing of the air. Beautiful things can result from conversations you engage in now. Pay particular attention to details, news, and ideas emerging today, as they can be significant.

You’re tapping into your needs for fantasy, dreams, and the magical and imaginative side of life.
ScorpioWith the Sun and Mercury joining forces in your resources sector, dear Scorpio, money matters and practical affairs are a focal point. You’re arriving at a fuller view of a situation. New insights, ideas, and perspectives can figure strongly now as further information emerges. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project now. A financial, ownership, or respect matter can gain more clarity. Conversations can also be helpful, particularly informational and logical ones. In fact, you might turn recent ideas or possibilities into solid plans as you flesh them out with details and specifics.

There can be a strong urge or need to talk about, analyze, and handle matters related to the past or to tie up loose ends. It’s easier to seek and find activities for healing and renewal. You could now recognize something you previously missed, or a conversation can bring up new information that rounds out your understanding of a matter. There can be unique and exciting developments in your private life or a breakthrough. Interestingly, you’re now dealing with ideas and concepts that you may have avoided in the past. Do watch that your curiosity doesn’t take you too far. Otherwise, it’s an excellent time to sort things out so that you feel emotionally lighter and fresher.
