Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can take an active interest in learning new things and connecting with others today, dear Aries. A change of pace can be refreshing on an emotional level today, although later in the day, you’re inclined to unwind and seek familiarity and security. It’s a fine time to seek advice, counsel, or a different viewpoint. New information can help fill in the gaps, or you might uncover information that helps you see a situation with more clarity, and partnering up can be part of this. Communicating with others in a balanced way can be satisfying now–you’re honoring your own needs while you model equality in your dealings. Still, you need some emotional renewal before your upcoming round of activity with the Moon’s move into your sector of home and family for a couple of days.
TaurusThere continues to be a stronger focus on your physical and comfort needs today, dear Taurus. You’re not inclined to complicate things unnecessarily with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house. Still, you talk more readily about health, work, and other practical matters, and you’re happy to see some progress or more clarity along these lines. It’s a good time for slowing yourself down a little, even if your mind or body don’t always want to do so. Today is strong for working through problem areas in business or with money. The Moon later heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, stirring your curiosity and need for variety. It’s a good time to learn something new.
GeminiYou seek channels for expressing yourself today, dear Gemini, and generally find them! It’s a good day for connecting with people or projects you love, and conversations can be inspiring. With Mercury newly direct, it’s best to keep things simple. You can feel a strong need for self-nurturing, even after the Moon leaves your sign today, which you shouldn’t dismiss. It’s a time for appreciating or making the most of your leisure time. Your ideas are especially bright and creative. You might receive advice or hear news that prompts you to pursue your heart’s desire. As the day advances, you spend more time thinking about and directing energy into your practical affairs.
CancerYou can feel very much in need of calm today, dear Cancer, although you’ll begin to crave more involvement as the day advances. Until then, indulging in some alone time can be quite beneficial. Still, others tend to support your ideas. Family can be supportive, and communications can be rewarding with people very close to you or your situation. You might nurture a relationship through the power of thoughtful words. You’re inclined to go low-profile, but problem-solving can be natural. Until later today, there is a withdrawn quality to you, and rightfully so. It’s the end of your lunar month, and you are in need of an emotional recharge. After the Moon moves into Cancer, feeling at peace with your decisions, and with yourself, helps you enjoy the moment more than usual.
LeoYou crave recreation or a healthy diversion today with the Moon’s transit of your social sector for some of the day, dear Leo. Friendly energy is with you, helping to ease some of the pressure you’ve been feeling. You’re feeling more at ease with expressing yourself. Conversations that revolve around personal interests and causes can be in focus. Conflict resolution and negotiation can be strengths today. You could be doing some problem-solving with friends or brainstorming. Whether productive or not, it’s likely to be interesting. Boredom can bring out the worst in you, but with your mind engaged, you quite happily move through your day. Later today, the Moon moves into your privacy sector, and you’re likely to spend more time listening to your own heart and deeper needs. Be strategic right now for best results.
VirgoToday’s energies are good for more evenness after some ups and downs, dear Virgo. The Moon spends part of the day at the top of your solar chart, helping you tune into priorities. It can be satisfying and productive to keep a goal in mind. Meaningful tasks hold appeal. Conversations are down-to-earth and useful, and you may very well get a clearer view of a situation that’s been hanging in limbo. You are making good decisions with money and business as a result. You might do some tidying up of record-keeping, or important information can emerge that benefits your business or money situation. Later today, you might ease back a little on professional and public matters and put more of yourself, emotionally, into more humanitarian or happiness goals.
LibraThe Moon spends some of the day in your solar ninth sector of adventure, spirit, and sharing, dear Libra. You readily tune in to your broader goals, and you tend to attract positive attention and feedback. While Mercury has only just ended its retrograde, you seem to be at ease expressing both your ideas and feelings today. A break from the routine or a change of scenery can be most beneficial now. While friendly, you’re in an independent frame of mind, and what needs to change in your life becomes most evident. Especially as the day advances, you bring added common sense, calm, and reasonableness to your connections and conversations, making you a natural leader right now, even if it’s informally. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart, where it will transit tomorrow and the next. Your ambitions or priorities come into sharper focus.
ScorpioThe Moon continues its transit of your solar eighth house, dear Scorpio, encouraging your very innate need to observe and reflect. There is beautiful energy with you for talking about a personal matter with someone you trust or giving a matter further thought and getting somewhere with it. You gravitate to situations, people, and projects that engage your emotions. You might see a new layer of a situation, perhaps even remembering a past matter differently. Your psychological insight is particularly well-developed, allowing you to better understand others’ needs and motivations. Your emotional focus is on making your life more interesting today.
SagittariusYou have a strong urge to soak up ideas and inspiration from others today, dear Sagittarius, and chances for satisfying exchanges seem to emerge through networks, groups, and friends. It’s easier to iron out differences with others than it has been in recent weeks. New information about a past problem can emerge, helping round out a story. Fortunately, smoothing things over gets even better in the weeks ahead. You might share a problem with a friend or partner, and you can be quite skilled at making connections right now. You can become a resource to others, and it’s a good idea to keep your eyes and ears open as well. Later today, you can be very productive in any activity that involves depth research or analysis.
CapricornThe lines of communication are opening today, dear Capricorn. It’s a good time to talk and think about plans and projects, whether related to business or overview life-goals. There’s general agreement with others or at least the space to do your own thing. Organizing your life in fundamental ways is a strong draw, and meaningful or practical activities are most attractive today. Accomplishing something is rewarding. Giving extra thought to issues that you avoided in the past can figure strongly, and you now have more information to help round out your thinking. Later today comes a greater desire to understand and connect with someone special. You might also decide to let go of a conflict, or you could find a resolution to a problem.
AquariusThis is a good time to explore your thoughts and desires without pressure, dear Aquarius. You have more space to think, and it’s helpful. You have a greater need for recreation and leisure than usual today, and easy conversations or a spirit of openness boost your mood. You’re emotionally and mentally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. You might see a line of thinking quite differently today, and it’s enjoyable to consider your new perspective. This is a time of building your faith, understanding where you stand and what you believe in, and standing up for what you believe in, as well. A person from your past could attempt to reconcile or connect with you. You may be talking and thinking about how you can expand your knowledge set or develop your skills.
PiscesYou can find yourself in need of more comfort, familiarity, and quiet again today, dear Pisces, but the difference is that you have a better chance of getting them. Take this time to tone things down, if possible. Resolving differences comes naturally through conversation or further thought, and new information or a significant memory can help with a clearer view of a matter. Dreams or new ideas can be motivating. While you need some personal time and space to regain your center and sense of self, conversations can be useful and enjoyable. We can talk ourselves through almost anything today, as reasoning works well, and people respond well to our overtures. Be diplomatic or keep things light for best results.
