Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou tend to keep a low profile until the Moon enters your sign later today, dear Aries, and you crave more interaction. Moods are likely to be on the fussy side as the day advances, however, and you can feel some pressure to speed things up. Unfortunately, people are not inclined to truly take the time to listen, and irritation can result. You can quickly become frustrated with how others express their ideas, particularly if you suspect narrow-mindedness or passive-aggressive behavior. There are better times for bringing up tricky or complex subject matter! Be easy on yourself by calming down and thinking of priorities. Fortunately, strength comes from within, even if it feels like you’re a little emotionally fragile.
TaurusYou can start the day with a relaxed, creative approach, dear Taurus, but this can be difficult later today when Mercury and Mars are in a challenging aspect, creating the sense that you should rush or push a matter. There can be quite a bit of energy available, but it isn’t easy to channel it. A disagreement over ideas or choice of words is possible with a partner. Keeping yourself mentally stimulated and engaged, even with games, can be helpful. You may not be in an ideal frame of mind for work and routine, but if you can make room for entertainment or hobbies, your mood should brighten. Fortunately, the desire to improve and grow is with you. Sharing can bring benefits. Approaching others positively and warmly increases the chances of getting similar responses from them.
GeminiYour personal life can be a little tense today, dear Gemini, especially as the day progresses. Irritations tend to stem from a lack of control over routines or work. You can feel out of step in spots, but your desire to grow and improve tends to win. Nevertheless, watch for a competitive edge in your communications. You could feel impatient with people who seem to be taking too much time or who are otherwise in your way. Slowing down is preferable to speeding up, but if it gives you more time to nurse frustrations or anger, it’s not very helpful! Do your best to center yourself or direct excess mental energy into something productive or positive. Look for patterns that are no longer serving your better interests. There is a stronger emotional investment in your reputation or career today, and you have a more powerful presence.
CancerYou may need to consciously avoid over-committing with today’s enthusiastic energy, dear Cancer. The energies of the later today, especially, demand some flexibility and quickness, but watch for excessive hastiness, which won’t serve you well. People around you may be nitpicking or misunderstanding your desires and actions. Even joking around with someone may hit a nerve. Aim to avoid pushing matters and find ways to soothe ragged nerves. While there are better times for focused work or activities, today’s suitable for making connections and light multitasking. You might enjoy a mind-expanding moment.
LeoYou can feel quite motivated and directed today, dear Leo, ready to handle a problem hands-on. Learning new things about yourself or someone important to you is rewarding. Later today, Mercury in a minor challenging aspect with Mars can point to some frustrations brewing, particularly with a partner, family member, or friend. Consider both the benefits and challenges that impulsiveness brings to your life so that you are better equipped to deal with surprise elements coming your way. Still, don’t accept rudeness from others, even if it’s cleverly cloaked. Passive-aggressive behavior can be prominent right now, particularly in your social circle. Fortunately, your creative fire burns brightly today, and nurturing a person or project can be where you’re shining.
VirgoYou’re focusing more on your relationships and support system today, dear Virgo. Counting on someone is natural right now. A minor but tense aspect between Mercury and Mars later today can cause some havoc, particularly since Mercury is your ruler and is in your sector of communications and mobility. Mars, at the top of your solar chart, is retrograde and stirring up buried frustrations. You could be working under stress right now, feeling pressure to produce or to solve problems quickly. There can be conflicts of interest. The tendency for others to take you the wrong way is strong, although nothing that you can’t handle! Fortunately, today’s energies also encourage you to gain strength and a sense of purpose from a relationship or special someone in your corner.
LibraYou’re motivated to share ideas or learn something useful today, dear Libra. Bringing others together can figure strongly. Later today, there can be some impatience, especially with people who lack a sense of decorum or who seem to be quite rude. There can be indecision or doubts to manage. As much as you would like to get a decision made and behind you, try not to rush into one, especially if it has to do with critical financial matters or a partnership. Aim to be as flexible and adaptable as possible and keep the bigger picture in perspective so that you don’t let the little problems drag you down.
ScorpioYou appreciate leisurely or creative pursuits more than usual today, dear Scorpio. With your strong desire to express yourself today, it’s a good idea to watch that you don’t stir up unnecessary trouble. As the day advances, there can be some tendency to communicate too impulsively or get quite fired up over a difference in opinion. It’s also possible that you’re taken the wrong way. You may feel a little out of sync on an intimate level if there’s a temporary lack of flow or misunderstandings now. Emotionally rousing activities satisfy you the most right now, and a need to create and express yourself uniquely is in the spotlight.
SagittariusYou can be satisfied with your efforts to support or nurture others, dear Sagittarius, or even yourself. The Moon spends much of the day in your home and family sector, aligning with your ruler, Jupiter. Later today, you’re not as inclined to play it safe. Still, communications can too easily go awry, and there can be something emerging from your past that you’d prefer stay buried! Alternatively, your mind can restlessly scan the past for answers, and settling yourself can be challenging. Keep in mind that minor disruptions or doubts can ultimately lead you to bigger and better things.
CapricornThe ability to help with information can be much appreciated today, dear Capricorn. You find much to learn about and share. Later today, however, passive-aggressive behavior can be prominent, particularly in your social circle. There could be minor malfunctions or changes of plans and schedules that threaten to throw you off your game. You might feel like someone is overstepping their bounds, and this can cause you to feel quite self-protective. There are better days to come for getting closer to someone, so it’s best to be patient and wait things out. Keep in mind that tension is helpful only to the point that it motivates you to take care of problems, after which it doesn’t do you service.
AquariusA good part of you wants to settle in and get comfortable today, dear Aquarius, and you’re likely to get the opportunity. Focusing on your practical affairs and fundamental needs can be a great help. Later today, your curiosity is building. An edge to the atmosphere can make you feel that you should be accomplishing something solid. However, it’s unclear where to put your energies as Mercury and retrograde Mars form a minor challenging aspect. This can stimulate restlessness or needless arguments and drama. Your ideas may not go over as well as they would on another day, so you probably should hold onto them for now. Watch for impatient, impulsive communications, and tension related to changes of schedules.
PiscesThe Moon continues to transit your sign much of the day, and your emotional needs tend to take priority, dear Pisces. The Moon moving away from your sign tonight tends to have the effect of steadying emotions. Still, patience may take work. There can be frustrations with people who aren’t expressing their ideas or opinions with consideration for others. Try to keep things in perspective while also watching for hasty actions and communications. Slowing down just enough to catch mistakes or prevent unnecessary conflicts will be essential. Try to direct any excess energy into something you genuinely love doing. Fortunately, once you do, you’re motivated by a sense that you’re doing the right thing, and following your higher values or guiding principles feels good.
