Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Full Moon is in your sign, dear Aries, and epiphanies or emotional discoveries are likely. You’re at a critical time for awakening to your needs. While the extra attention you’ve been giving other people in your life these days is beneficial, overdoing it can compromise your sense of independence. The lunation today reminds you of the need for self-nurture. Seek out personal liberation in this week of personal triumphs and fascinating discoveries about your life plan, body, image, and attitude/outlook. Be aware that it’s a time when things come to light about you, making it best to keep those things you want to stay hidden on the down-low this week. If you want certain things to gain exposure, this can be the time but consider that with Mars retrograde in your sign, others may not understand you the way you want to be understood.
TaurusToday’s Full Moon wants you to look within, dear Taurus. You might come to an important realization about rest and relaxation, or you might discover your true feelings about a matter. It can pull up the need to back up from the routine to take care of mental and emotional health. It’s not the time to make sweeping decisions, however. Instead, this is a time to recognize your feelings, instincts, and hunches, and then gradually let a plan to handle things unfold. There has been extra attention to work, habits, health, and lifestyle changes these days. While a beneficial focus, stopping to listen to your inner voice or take extra time for rest and reflection is vital. If possible, take a light schedule or a small hiatus from daily pressures. The first step to getting over those things that are holding you back is to identify the problems, and that is what this Full Moon helps you do.
GeminiToday’s Full Moon expands your feelings related to your social life, dear Gemini. Love affairs, children, friends, and group associations are areas of life that involve revelations, unveilings, and important discoveries. Your true feelings about a matter can surface, or you see a situation in a new light. Aim to restore some level of balance to your life by including friends, considering communal needs, and enjoying the benefits of teams and groups, even if you’re exceptionally wrapped up in your personal or romantic life these days. Your happiness goals are also in strong focus now, and you may very well discover a new goal, dream, or plan. Mars is retrograde in this same sector of your chart, and feelings are nevertheless complicated. Your new revelations are meaningful, but you may need more time before acting on them in concrete ways.
CancerThe Full Moon occurring today is in your career and public sector, dear Cancer, challenging you to pay attention to the outside world. There has been a beneficial focus on your home and family life these days, but now you’re called to bring things into balance. There can be an important realization about your work, true calling, business, career, reputation, or true feelings about the direction your life is taking. Listen to your intuition about a matter, even if it comes on suddenly now. Consider that Mars is currently retrograde in this same area of your solar chart, and a review of matters is better than embarking on brand-new endeavors. Nevertheless, your feelings and realizations are meaningful, even if acting on them takes time. A reward, award, or culmination of a project can serve to pull you out of your shell.
LeoThe Full Moon today occurs in your solar ninth house, dear Leo, and it can encourage the need for a change of pace or scenery. This realization comes at a time when your focus on errands, paperwork, and learning has dominated. Today’s lunation reminds you to feed your soul or learn something new. There can be something published, expressed, or promoted, and you might experience sudden interests that lead you along a new path, or that motivate you to rekindle an old interest. Be choosy about what you take on now, however, since Mars is retrograde in the same area of your solar chart and motivation levels are not up to par for the time being. Today’s Full Moon encourages more attention to broader goals. It excites your emotions or opens your eyes to the need to get a breath of fresh air or a change in perspective and break from the routine. You can have the urge to pull your head out of your books and devices into a new scene or headspace.
VirgoYou stand to learn a lot about your feelings today, dear Virgo, particularly related to values, respect, feelings of worth, money, valuables, business, or personal possessions. Today’s Full Moon awakens you to what you want or need. You might gain new information about shared resources or debts and loans, or there can be a surprising discovery about your feelings for someone (or theirs for you). This lunation can also bring a financial or intimate matter to a turning point. If you’ve been dependent on a situation, person, or habit, it’s a time of realizing your need to detach. With Mars retrograde in this same sector of your solar chart, there can be more to this unfolding story, but awarenesses now are integral to future change and improvement. They help get the ball rolling, in other words! Aim to center yourself, digest, and process rather than jump into action.
LibraWith the Sun transiting your sign these days, dear Libra, your independence and personal needs are in stronger focus. However, today’s Full Moon reminds you that you need others to be the best you can be. This lunation expands your emotions, particularly about your relationships, and you can discover your feelings on a matter, or something about you may come to light. It can pull up buried matters, which can be revealing, but avoid dwelling on issues that you can’t yet change. Do pay attention, since there can be an important realization about your feelings for someone or about a particular partnership, but take your time with new endeavors or actions. Relationship goals may need revisement. You’re approaching your relationships differently now, so expect different results as a matter of course! Consider that Mars is retrograde in your partnership sector and that a review of your situation is important before you can go forward with more confidence.

You can experience some revelations about your work, habits, or health and wellness now. Tired, old methods have to go if they aren’t working for you! Focus on ways to improve your productivity, as it’s time to freshen up your daily life, perhaps by returning to old programs with a new twist. Today’s energies are also useful for connecting with a significant other.
SagittariusToday’s Full Moon occurs in your sector of joy, pleasure, romance, and creativity, dear Sagittarius. It can prompt an important realization about a romance or pet project. Listen to your intuition about a matter, even if it comes on suddenly and surprises you. Mars is retrograde in the same sector of your solar chart, and a review of recent choices or endeavors seems important before you regain your motivation.

It also illuminates your need for creative self-expression and spontaneity. Listen to your heart, but take your time before jumping into action.

It can bring illumination or a turning point to family, home, and personal matters. You might recognize needs that you’ve recently brushed aside or overlooked, helping you move on and forward. Suppose you’ve been focusing too much on your responsibilities to career and the outside world. In that case, the need to arrive at a balance with more quality attention to your personal life can become apparent. If you’ve been overextending yourself, you need to find ways to get more downtime. This Full Moon can serve as a reminder to recharge so that you can give other areas of your life your best. You may benefit greatly from doing some catching up with family or your own heart.
AquariusToday’s Full Moon can prompt an important realization about your daily affairs, mobility, studies, or general mental outlook and communications, dear Aquarius.

There can be more edits or reviews necessary before you get there, but today’s discoveries help you see the right path. A change of plans or a sudden awareness of an outstanding matter can lead to a scuffle of activity. You can feel a strong desire to be understood.
PiscesRevelations can happen now as a Full Moon occurs in your solar second house today, dear Pisces.

Aim to be wary of incomplete information, but listen to your instincts. This Full Moon happens at a time when Mars is retrograde in your resources sector, and a review of these affairs becomes necessary. Hot topics can be about finances, responsibility, ownership, or sharing, and these things can involve material goods or resources and/or emotional or spiritual matters. The goal now should be to work towards stronger self-worth, value, security, and comfort. You’re likely to come face to face with needs and wants that you’ve kept at bay, and it’s a great learning experience.
