Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies are suitable for tying up loose ends, reflecting on recent events, and letting go of things that have run their course, dear Aries. The Moon is in its Balsamic phase, with a New Moon just ahead of us. It’s not the best time for beginning a whole new project since a shift is in progress. Today is strong for sorting out your thoughts and observing what’s going on around you. Still, if you can find a way to get away from it all, even if it’s about exploring an interest or enjoying a book or movie, it’s a good idea to do so. Prepare for changes of interest, focus, and direction, which are sure to come over the next few days. Communications happening now can serve to help you center and pace yourself. Even though you may not be at your peak, energetically speaking, pleasant conversations can figure strongly. Another person’s perspective, even if it diverges from yours significantly, tends to enhance your own today. You might repair a relationship by talking things through or working with someone to solve a problem.
TaurusTalking through problems can be helpful and satisfying today, dear Taurus. Two heads are better than one today, particularly regarding research, work, or health matters.

There can be a real buzz of ideas with you today, nonetheless, but don’t feel pressured to make sense of it all, as there are still some missing puzzle pieces. Ahead of you is a more home or family-focused period. Today, your charm shines through your communications and gestures. There can be relief about sharing a particular topic now, or you could be a go-between helping others to come to a compromise or state of peace.

Since it precedes tomorrow’s New Moon in your sign, it’s a crucial time for you to review, reflect, and tap into your intuition.
