Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Aries, and you continue to focus on your emotional needs. At this time of the lunar month, you’re focused on personal plans and goals. However, current transits seem to stimulate insecurities, and poor timing can result. These are unlikely permanent blockages and may be helpful if they redirect you to productive pursuits for a spell. It’s a time to assess what’s standing in the way of joy, growth, and improvement. A Venus-Saturn square could produce a letdown or delay, but through it, you may very well learn more about what you do need, want, or desire through a step back and a chance to observe. Rethink goals and needs today for best results, and aim to tackle responsibilities that need your attention.
TaurusYou can be determined to connect more deeply with personal interests, hobbies, and possibly even a person, dear Taurus. Today, it’s more apparent what’s hindering your progress as your ruler, Venus, heads into a square aspect with Saturn. Even so, you can be wrestling with expectations or battling waning enthusiasm in your social life. You may be reshuffling your priorities or questioning your allegiances now. If others are blocking or discouraging you, you may come to a better understanding of your values, needs, and wants through the conflict. Because you’re more sensitive, others’ dramas can feel larger than life. Aim to rethink your strategies but don’t over-analyze emotions just for now. Detaching yourself a little can help you gain a new perspective. It’s best not to take things too personally today.
GeminiWith today’s transits, people can be more sensitive, dear Gemini, meaning it’s probably better to make adjustments than to forge ahead. Concerns or worries about money, relationships, work, or legal matters can take hold. Direct your energies into dealing with practical priorities and give relationships some healthy distance. Or, you may see the downside of a situation, helping you weigh its pros and cons. Resolve to take a lesson from experiences encountered now, even if criticism surfaces. It may very well be a good time to see errors or areas that need attention and improvement before moving forward. People may not be inspiring your confidence or faith, but you might consider putting your trust in the universe that things will straighten out and fall into place. Take small steps for the best results now.
CancerWith the Moon at the top of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, you are more likely to be in the spotlight, noticed, and perhaps in demand. You’re in a goal-oriented frame of mind, but you could wrestle with conflicting needs and approaches due to today’s rather particular and picky aspects. Uncertainty or emotional reticence can be part of the picture. There could be feelings of being excluded or distanced. If others seem unsympathetic, find ways to rely on yourself for now, as it can end up being quite satisfying! Cooperation may not be straightforward, but you might discover that you can handle a matter just fine on your own. Try to focus on positive, productive tasks despite distractions and some inconsistencies.
LeoThe Moon continues its transit of your sector of spirit and adventure today, dear Leo, inspiring an attitude that there’s something more to enjoy, learn, or explore. Today’s transits can introduce insecurities or feelings of blockage, however. Saturn is reminding you to take responsibility for your relationships these days, but today, interactions can be tricky as Venus in your home and family sector forms a challenging square aspect with Saturn. The strides you’re making with a family connection could cause frustration for someone else who may be vying for your attention, or you might be pulled in different directions. Responsibilities tend to feel more cumbersome than usual, affecting how you perceive things now. A bit of emotional distance in a relationship is likely to be temporary, and possibly beneficial, as ups and downs can remind you of who or what you value. You may discover that you need more time for yourself now. Aim to be kind to yourself and try to create your own happiness while avoiding the tendency to seek it from others.
VirgoTransits tend to bring your attention to realistic factors and details, dear Virgo, whether you want to see them or not! Getting your message across well or kindly may be difficult, or others may seem distant or critical. Alternatively, you could feel overwhelmed with responsibilities that delay your satisfaction elsewhere. Days like these are good for finding your own way, making yourself happy instead of relying on others or circumstances, and getting things done, even if it’s initially frustrating. There can be some sensitivity to social interactions and communications, but be careful not to read too much into what others say. Mind you, there may be some good that comes out of feedback, even if it’s not all accurate, and it’s a good idea to extract any helpful tidbits now.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Libra, and you’re ready to look at things from a new angle. Feedback is more important to you than usual at this time of the lunar month. However, consider that today’s transits are rather picky, and it’s best not to put too much weight on others’ comments. Especially later today, watch for letting far too much in at the expense of your sense of contentment. You may see areas where you’ve been restricted or lagging more clearly through current events and musings. Concerns about your resources or relationships can lead to a cautious approach. Make adjustments or take a break instead of giving up entirely, since these feelings and blocks are temporary.
ScorpioIt can be most satisfying to handle some loose ends today, dear Scorpio. Putting in the effort towards something productive can figure strongly. Nevertheless, the day highlights our differences or problems, requiring some adjustments. You can be indecisive as you wrestle with conflicting needs and approaches. Insecurities and self-protectiveness can interrupt the regular flow of your interactions. You may be experiencing a stronger need for approval or attention, but others are too wrapped up in their issues to notice. Pulling yourself back or cooling off may do you good right now. Others may be unduly critical, but if so, you may very well bounce back in a stronger position. Take the time for self-understanding. You can benefit greatly from centering yourself first and foremost.
SagittariusToday’s Moon encourages your outgoing, confident side, dear Sagittarius. The day seems to highlight contrasts, and you become more aware of your different drives, needs, and approaches. Avoid signing on the dotted line, buying expensive items, or committing yourself to something half-heartedly. People can be harder to please, and a lack of natural flow makes it difficult to find satisfaction. Fortunately, it’s temporary, and the adjustments you make as a result of conflicts can ultimately be helpful to you–the more you strengthen weak areas, the easier it will be to bounce back from disappointments in the future.
CapricornThe Moon continues its transit of your home and family sector today, dear Capricorn, and you’re inclined to stick with the familiar. You remain a little self-protective and withdrawn. Today’s transits can signify blocks to pleasure or some disconnects breaking up the flow of your interactions. Challenges can appear that remind you to tone things down just enough to get yourself back on solid ground if you’ve gone off-path. Concern for future security ultimately helps you focus on managing your affairs more efficiently, and that’s what Saturn’s transit of your resources sector has been all about. Particular attention to practical matters can go a long way towards improved well-being. If others are responding differently than you’d like, this can be a chance to reflect on recent events, get in better touch with your feelings, and rediscover just how independent you can be. You might also come to a new understanding of what you need and want from others, especially your friendships.
AquariusWhile the day’s not ideal for decisiveness, dear Aquarius, you’re quick to respond or connect, and you can pick up much information. Because there can be minor disappointments and energy levels can dip temporarily later today, try not to take on too much. If someone important to you seems distant or disinterested, aim to detach yourself and go about your own business for now. People may not be particularly sensitive or sympathetic to your situation today, with Venus in a challenging aspect to Saturn in your sign. Even so, this is unlikely to leave you feeling down for long, and with the changes you make as a result of this short break, you may ultimately feel better off.
PiscesWith the Moon in your solar second house today, dear Pisces, it feels good that you are in control of your moods rather than at their mercy. Still, you might feel somewhat stifled or limited by circumstances later today–people may not be very forthcoming or receptive. Consider pulling back a little to assess your goals, particularly those related to your social life, love life, or educational pursuits. Give attention to minor problems that help prepare you for more exciting times. A Venus-Saturn square stands out among other challenging aspects and can lead to feeling just a little out of sync with others. However, it may only be a healthy measure of reserve. If you resolve to learn from frustrating circumstances today, you’ll put yourself in a favorable position.
