Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou might get the feeling that you have to push an endeavor before its time, dear Aries, or you might feel restless with the Sun’s minor challenging aspects today. There can be frustrations surrounding friendships and possibly disagreements about beliefs and opinions. If you feel in the dark on a specific matter, it can bother you more than usual, but only if you let it. In other areas, you can feel drained or demotivated. Try not to succumb to pressures, but consider your urges today since they may hold vital clues to the areas of your life that you need to change down the road. Today may be best for small adjustments rather than sweeping changes or decisions. The Moon moves into your communications sector for a couple of days, and you may be seeking a bit of extra mental stimulation or variety.
TaurusWhether or not to make changes or stay with traditional or familiar patterns can keep you in limbo in spots today, dear Taurus. Good energy is with you today, however, on a personal level. Letting go of tension and frustration can help you more fully enjoy it. Still, you could be feeling a little caged in, and it can help to consider areas of inner unhappiness stirred, but avoid sweeping decisions or actions for the time being. Insecurities about your ability to reach your goals may lead to uncomfortable situations or tension in your relationships. Decisions made under these conditions rarely work out for good. Do your best to avoid game-playing or holding onto an idea so tightly that you fail to see the positive side of a situation. Give others (and yourself) a bit of extra space today for best results. Feeling hemmed in can lead to unnecessary conflicts. The day is better suited for making minor adjustments. With a Lunar Eclipse occurring tomorrow, emotions are stronger than usual today.
GeminiThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Gemini, which can animate you emotionally. A Lunar Eclipse occurs in your sign tomorrow, and epiphanies and interesting discoveries about your feelings on a matter are likely. Today, there can be some indecision and second-guessing. It’s important to recognize a need for change rather than focus on the idea that others are caging you in–the former approach is more constructive than the latter since it encourages self-awareness and leads to better choices all-around. There can be some tension experienced with differing beliefs and opinions. While you know peace is best achieved by letting go of the desire to be right, today’s energies can be on the stubborn side. Problems may run more deeply, and that could be why tensions are mounting. It would be wise to release some of the pressure you may have put on yourself to reach goals. Fortunately, you’re able to zero in on the right patterns and details to understand a project or problem.
CancerYou might have difficulty prioritizing or concentrating today, dear Cancer, and there can be distractions or unreliability to manage on a social level. There can be some frustrations with work or routines today, especially if you feel that you can’t quite get over a habit or move past an old frustration. There can be a somewhat jagged or hectic pace at times today, and you might decide to take care of some loose ends. Be sure to take time out for emotional recharging with the Moon heading into your privacy sector for a couple of days. If you’ve left some things undone, you could feel a little stressed about them now, but it’s better to pace yourself and avoid overdoing. Ambitions serve you well only to the point that they motivate you, but if you put so much pressure on yourself that you’re living with stress for long chunks of time, then you may need to make some adjustments.
LeoThe day can introduce some surprises, primarily to do with responsibilities, dear Leo, but avoid fretting too much about these. Your ruler, the Sun, forms a couple of picky aspects on this day before a Lunar Eclipse, which can serve up a bit of tension. Ideally, small problems help lead you to a release or better understanding of your feelings on a matter. It may be best to resolve to make changes and adjustments without forcing them. Thinking about what to change rather than jumping into action makes sense today. The Moon heads into your social sector for a couple of days, drawing you to more relaxed and less pressured experiences. As long as you allow yourself to go with the flow instead of trying to push the pace, you’ll be in a fine emotional place. Avoid putting too much pressure on yourself. If you’ve been unhappy with your own personal patterns or confronting the same old issues in relationships, this can be a time for changing your approach.
VirgoInteresting people and ideas seem to be all around you these days, dear Virgo, and it’s not always easy to find time for quiet. Minor tensions stir today, and you can feel pressure to make a move, but letting go a little may be better for you temporarily. You could certainly feel torn between venturing out or sticking with who and what you know. There is also a tendency to probe a little too much. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart for a couple of days, and you’ll be paying special attention to your responsibilities and long-term goals. Today can feel as if things are too sporadic to accomplish much, but it’s better to focus on what needs to be done rather than worry about the pace. If the routine is hard to follow, look for ways to do things just a little differently to keep thinking and relating fresh.
LibraIf you’ve taken on too much or have been working yourself to exhaustion, you can feel the tension today, dear Libra. The Sun encourages you to pour extra energy into your studies or personal interests these days. At the same time, Uranus would prefer you dig a little deeper into a more satisfying project or pursuit. This conflict can keep you sitting on the fence. Transits today may convince you that you need to worry or stress over a matter, but it’s best considered a sign to make changes going forward. Plans might meet some resistance now, which can be frustrating but could also buy you time to make significant adjustments and edits. The Moon heads into your sector of spirit and adventure for a couple of days, and you can feel more outgoing, optimistic, and forward-looking than you have been in recent days.
ScorpioThe Moon divides its time between your partnership and intimacy sectors today, dear Scorpio, and you are relationship-focused and sensitive to others’ feelings. Today’s transits are a little touchy, however, and a sense of being caged in or limited can lead to restlessness. Talking things through is helpful, but do watch for a tendency to focus too much on the things that you haven’t finished, as this can lead to a sense that you’re behind when your progress may very well be quite acceptable. Tension may result from pressure to perform or meet a goal that is too out of reach at the moment. Fortunately, there can be a nice buzz surrounding your communications, personal interests, or projects. The pieces of a mental puzzle might come together.
SagittariusYou may be too close to a situation or influenced by pressure to see things clearly at times today, dear Sagittarius. It may be better to watch for conflicts brewing before they take off or get blown out of proportion. Aim to listen to any inner stirrings that call for a need for change, particularly surrounding work, health, and habits. However, try to avoid succumbing to the idea that you need to make changes immediately. Disruptions in the usual routine may irritate you on the surface of things, but they can also lead to interesting detours. There can also be progressive thinking related to money matters today. It’s a good time to think outside of the box and develop inventive solutions and ideas. Your social life comes into focus and in good shape with the Moon’s move into your partnership sector for a couple of days. While you may not be at your peak energetically speaking, this can be a fine time for enjoying someone’s company.
CapricornAim to cut out distractions as much as possible today, dear Capricorn. The Sun in your privacy sector forms some minor challenging aspects today, which can lead to a bit of stress if you’re not careful. You may feel concerned that something was left unfinished or that you’re missing something important. Aim to avoid overthinking or jumping into action prematurely, but do listen to your needs for change. You might come up with a plan to make adjustments at a later date. You have a distinct need for some level of freedom and change today, but it can take some time to discover this as you wrestle with restlessness. You can feel a little resistant to doing things exactly as others expect or ask of you. You become more emotionally oriented towards taking care of business and attending to details today as the Moon heads into your work and health sector. Attention to chores and errands may very well boost your mood, making you feel more organized and on top of things.
AquariusBe on the watch for unnecessary worrying today, dear Aquarius, as the Sun forms minor challenging aspects. Rushing through things could lead to poor decisions, choices, or results. It may be best to take the time to think before making changes. A minor conflict may arise between the need to attend to family or personal matters and the desire to keep other connections and relationships alive. There can seem to be hidden agendas at play or information that is not yet known, and only a partial story can be frustrating. The Moon heads into your creative sector for a couple of days, which can be emotionally freeing on some levels, fortunately. You feel lighter with this transit. Plans should be rather flexible today for best results. It’s better to recognize the need for change so that you can channel it into an appropriate outlet. Otherwise, there can be some small mishaps or misunderstandings.
PiscesTry not to succumb to pressure to push out something before it’s ready today, dear Pisces. While you’re learning how to use challenges and obstacles to your advantage these days, you can feel a little on edge at times today. Harping on the past can be an issue, and you might recognize that too-high ambitions are at the root of pressure just for now. With the Moon’s move to the lowermost part of your solar chart today, you’re likely to experience an inherent need for some privacy and relaxation. You may need to spend a little time in comfortable surroundings or alone to understand your needs. You’d do well with some emotional centering, but leave space for mental explorations. New ideas with long-term value can come to you, and these are likely to be about the bigger planning rather than the details right now.
