Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesAs you go a little more deeply into your pursuits these days, you may need to find moments to come up for air, dear Aries! Heightened emotions surrounding money and possessions, as well as personal values and talents, can be a theme now with a Lunar Eclipse landing in your resources sector. It’s a time to face feelings and make changes and improvements that get you to a stronger sense of security, predictability, and safety. You can have a revelation about money or business or deal with matters related to your values, self-worth, or boundaries in a relationship. Realizations about how to better handle or manage your money can occur now. There can be a wake-up call to take charge of your finances or to view your assets and possessions in a new light. It can also promote a stronger desire to establish yourself and make your life more comfortable; an epiphany about money can be part of this. Avoid impatiently handling matters, as mistakes are easier to make this way. Aim to deal with interrupted plans, conflicts, or opposition to ideas with some detachment. Take your time before making any pivotal decisions, but examine feelings coming to the surface, however raw they may be at the moment.
TaurusA Lunar Eclipse occurs in your sign today, stirring an emotional awakening, dear Taurus. The truth you face now is about something that’s been with you for some time but that you haven’t yet acknowledged or fully noticed. Emotions run high, especially surrounding a personal matter or close relationship, and even with all of the emotional excitement, you can feel energetically drained. A Lunar Eclipse has the effect of a super-charged Full Moon. It can bring about a significant revelation, likely to do with your feelings about someone, your image, or your personal impact. Events or epiphanies happening now seem to force a desire to make big changes related to your sense of independence. These feelings are real, but take your time with them. Uranus in your sign is involved with this eclipse, pointing to surprises and unexpected impulses. This lunation can bring a sudden revelation that can relate to your freedoms or attention to a partnership. Your feelings are strong and hard to contain. If you’ve been working on auto-pilot, you might now wonder why you’ve accepted restrictions and sidelines. Aim to avoid abrupt or rebellious moves, but listen to your emotions today. Look for important signposts for your plans. The ideas you generate can be exciting and brilliant, but there can be temporary problems relaying your message, or you seem to stir up some opposition with your communications.
GeminiThis morning’s Lunar Eclipse prompts you to look within, get some rest, and answer your inner voice, dear Gemini. You may need a small hiatus from daily pressures and demands as this lunation occurs in your privacy sector, reminding you to take care of your spiritual and emotional needs. Your intuition or dreams have strong messages for you! Light shines on recent hidden or background trends in your life, helping you fill in some blanks. If you’ve been working too hard or putting so much effort into helping others that you’ve ignored your own needs, you’ll want to restore the balance. Disruptions in your routine force you to pull yourself away from the daily grind. Put your fears aside and deal head-on (or heart-on) with whatever comes your way. A work or health matter may gain traction or clarity today, but you’re also due for more rest and reflection. Articulating your ideas can frame them in such a way that you see things more clearly. What you see now can be surprising, but it can also lead the way toward letting go of the past in meaningful ways. There can be a surprise element to the day — aim to take notes rather than lock things down. Watch for mental overdrive.
CancerFeelings are strong and guiding you today, with a Lunar Eclipse in your solar eleventh house, dear Cancer, influencing your social life, children, love affairs, group associations, and friends. Your feelings for someone, about a relationship, or about your social life, can be pivotal now, reaching a turning point. You might also come to powerful realizations about long-term happiness goals. Events tend to push you in the right direction, along a more authentic path. You need this background to make meaningful choices later, but it’s best to sit with your feelings for a while to get to that point. While there’s no question your emotions are engaged on this day of a powerful Full Moon, you’re also pumped on a mental level. You are articulate and possibly dramatic, and you might enjoy entertaining others with your conversation. You could gain some clarity about creative projects, a relationship, courses, or a hobby. There can be a romantic revelation. After a spell of being fairly wrapped up in your personal life, you may realize the need to reach out to others and remind them that they matter to you. It’s a time to enjoy new revelations and share your findings with people you care about. You might awaken to the need to feel valued as a friend or to align yourself with a cause, goal, or dream to motivate/drive you. A sudden awareness of feelings for someone or a buried relationship problem can emerge and demand attention. Ideally, if there is a change of plans now, it leads you on a pleasant detour. Nevertheless, communication may be abrupt, and tension can lead to errors.
LeoTransits highlight the need to make changes in your personal and professional life, dear Leo. Epiphanies are likely to be about past situations and buried needs or feelings, and these can, ultimately, push you forward. Plans and schedules may change but will also likely lead to important discoveries. There can be real challenges managing your personal and professional or public lives now, with heavy demands coming from both ends. The trick is to find a balance or compromise. Keep in mind that you are in a rather exposed position, and act accordingly to protect your interests and privacy. Consider, too, that there are emotional needs for change and excitement that you may need to acknowledge. Today’s Lunar Eclipse can push recognition or awards or even a change in your career path. You become especially aware of your responsibilities, ambitions, and goals. A project can come to fruition, or those things you’ve swept under the carpet demand attention now and in the coming weeks. It can be a time of big reveals! Acknowledging your need to perform, lead, and manage can be in focus. There’s a stronger focus on home and family or your private world these days, and now your responsibilities to the outside world call. A the same time, things may be coming together on the home front or regarding living conditions, and ideas can blossom, so it’s a busy time. Different perspectives can be frustrating or surprising, but they can also be useful learning experiences.
VirgoToday’s Lunar Eclipse challenges you to confront some important, perhaps previously buried, issues in your life, dear Virgo, particularly related to ideas and beliefs. It’s a powerful time for discovering your feelings on a matter, but you may need to let everything sink in before coming to conclusions. Taking control of your life requires time and energy, so resolve to make changes, but avoid pushing for immediate results. This eclipse generates both emotional and mental energy but focusing all of it can be challenging. Give yourself time to process any news or new information coming your way. This eclipse might motivate you to fit more extracurricular activities into your life or expand your skills, knowledge, and reach. A significant idea or project can blossom. Wonderful things can result from the conversations you engage in today. You’ve been absorbed in your everyday activities, errands, personal interests, and tasks, which may have kept you in familiar mental territory. Now, you’re reminded of the need to feed your spirit. This is about renewal, revival, and spiritual replenishment. Unmet and unspoken needs are likely to find a platform now.
LibraThere can be revelations and possible problems or tension related to finances now, dear Libra, with a Lunar Eclipse and its ties with Mercury and Uranus. While these influences can motivate you to work harder, watch for burning out on it, impulsiveness with money, and combativeness in relationships. If you don’t honestly know what’s bothering you, you may end up instigating or provoking, so aim for self-understanding. There is a tendency for people to challenge one another today, so try not to take it too personally if it happens to you! Aim to deal with emerging issues of personal freedom head-on. This can be a wonderful time, in fact, for discovering buried needs and desires. The eclipse stimulates a turning point, realization, or epiphanies surrounding financial, ownership, intimate, or sharing matters. Now and in the coming weeks, there can be activities with financial support, taxes, debts, investments, or a close relationship and power dynamics or trust issues. Long-brewing situations come to the surface–or to a head. You might reach a settlement or change how you depend on others. Tensions with restrictions now can motivate you to work harder and smarter in the future. You might recognize the need to let go of extra clutter or a bad habit–releasing your hold on something if you’re hanging on too tightly to it can improve your life. Seek compromises for the best results.
ScorpioToday’s Lunar Eclipse falls in your opposite sign, dear Scorpio, and your attention turns to the perspective, agenda, or needs of a significant other. This can help balance things out, although you could feel temporarily drained or overwhelmed. It’s a time of greater social and relationship activity or an important announcement. Epiphanies about your relationship needs can lead to substantial changes–today is about getting in touch with what’s in your heart. While events and epiphanies occurring now are highly revealing, take time to sort through whatever comes to light. While it’s a time of mental and emotional renewal, take your time with new reveals. You see yourself, your relationships, and your experiences in a whole new light, which can ultimately lead you down new paths. It’s a time to redefine what you want and need from your relationships, and this eclipse, while a bit chaotic, can help you out in this regard. It’s also possible that someone’s unreliability can motivate you to be a little more self-sufficient. Or, someone in your life may be triggering your own dormant needs for freedom, independence, and excitement, and you learn important things about yourself and personal goals through your experiences and interactions.
SagittariusThis morning’s Lunar Eclipse is part of a set of eclipses encouraging you to improve the work-rest balance in your life, dear Sagittarius. Today’s eclipse challenges you to deal with loose ends, looming deadlines, health matters, or scheduling issues. Realizations and reveals prompt you to get going on an exercise or nutrition program you know you have to do to feel more balanced, or there can be a culmination of a job or work project that gets you to a turning point. Demands can be high, and emotions are strong. Disruptions help redirect you along a more authentic path. Verbalizing or sorting out a private matter can be involved. You have a good sense that if you stay on top of the demands, you’ll be able to make meaningful changes. Aim to go slowly and figure out what’s in your heart before taking concrete action. Ideally, a new awareness of buried needs can push you in a positive direction. Aim to be flexible and open to possibilities, but perhaps most importantly, to innovate rather than rebel. Events occurring now trigger your needs for more independence or freedom, particularly with work and daily routines, but they may seem to be coming from outside of you. Perhaps you’re considering lifestyle changes that can lead to a freer approach to your life or more creative and fulfilling work.
CapricornEmotions run high with today’s Lunar Eclipse, dear Capricorn, as it sheds new light on a friendship, romance, or a creative project. Your true feelings about a person or project can overcome you, and everything changes as a result! There can be a culmination or turning point now. Letting something go makes room for a rush of new creativity flowing. Since this is a part of a series of eclipses that last until next year, you won’t have all the answers yet, but you’re certainly on your way. Friends have something important to contribute or say, and you might arrive at a fuller understanding of a long-standing issue. Changes in plans or sudden events can demand a new approach. Transits occurring around this eclipse are about shaking up the status quo, especially related to sharing, expressing yourself, and your social or romantic life. People in your life may be rebellious, defiant, or unreliable, but you might open up possibilities you might not have known existed. Epiphanies can occur about a relationship or creative direction, and they’re important. Part of you wants to join in, and another part craves the freedom of minimal ties, and finding a balance becomes necessary now.
AquariusWhile it’s best to avoid hasty actions, it’s a powerful time for self-discovery, dear Aquarius. Life seems to accelerate, and something needs to change, but it’s best to make considered adjustments rather than merely react to frustrating circumstances. Aim to know your own heart before acting upon it. Both professional and personal demands are strong upon you now, but it can be challenging to make headway in either direction until you strike up a balance or compromise. A Lunar Eclipse and its surrounding aspects shake up the status quo and challenge you to find a better balance between independence and togetherness, as well as work and home life. Finding that often elusive balance between security and excitement or professional and personal life can be challenging, but events occurring now can motivate you to come close. Feelings you’ve kept at bay or haven’t yet acknowledged are impossible to ignore now! If you’ve been over-extending yourself, you’ll now find ways to get more downtime. It’s a time to honor your need for a safe, comfortable, and supportive base. Watch for rebellious reactions that don’t serve you well. Focus, instead, on making improvements.
PiscesEmotions run high today with a Lunar Eclipse in your communications and transportation sector, dear Pisces. Feelings, ideas, and events can lead to important discoveries, ideas, and changes in your mindset or attitude. Today’s transits tend to shake up preconceptions, and changes in plans and schedules can alter your perspective on a matter or your view of a project or situation. Epiphanies and moments of truth can occur now, making it a powerful time to learn more about yourself. This eclipse is eye-opening and may feel a little hectic, but through a bit of chaos comes enlightenment, or at least a greater understanding of what’s most important to you. It can pull up unresolved emotional matters or buried feelings, and you can experience a strong desire to be understood, to have your say, or to express your ideas or point of view. Emotions run high, so do watch for speaking too soon. Otherwise, enjoy this rush of energy that helps you catch up with your true feelings on a matter. You may also need to catch up with errands and other essentials of your daily affairs.
