Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesInsecurities can get the best of you at times early today, dear Aries, or you could feel a little off in your interactions. You could feel vulnerable or too open with Chiron in your sign opposite Venus. You might wonder how someone feels about you or how deep a commitment is. Try not to allow vague worries and doubts to hold you back, but it might be better to wait for a better day to make significant choices. As well, consider that if soft spots are triggered easily, this gives you the chance to take a closer look and discover ways to repair them. The Moon moves into your resources sector later today, and you’re ready to get down to business. Also today, Mercury moves back into your partnership sector. This transit began from August 25-September 23 but then backed up. Now and in the weeks ahead, conversations that were left unfinished may resume, or information that eluded you last month can emerge. This can be an excellent time for opening the airwaves with a partner, significant other, or a good friend. People in your life can help you get in better touch with your ideas–conversations with them jumpstart your thinking processes.
TaurusSome interactions can be a little delicate early today, dear Taurus, and you may not feel as fully appreciated as you’d like. You might be concerned that you are not getting what you need from others as your ruler, Venus, opposes Chiron. However, situations and feelings stirred today tend to give you a greater understanding of your commitment to self-care. If you’ve invested too much energy into something that’s just not giving back, then you’ll feel the need to make changes now. The Moon moves into your sign later today, adding more color to your emotional world. Also today, Mercury returns to your sector of work and health, sticking around until the 29th. Mercury spent time here from August 25-September 23 but then backtracked due to a retrograde cycle. As such, plans or projects begun last month that faced delays, perhaps due to missing information, begin to move forward or gain momentum. This cycle is superb for attention to detail.
GeminiEarly today, people tend to take things quite personally, dear Gemini. Discomfort on a social level might lead to over-indulgent tendencies–overdoing when we should be pulling back temporarily. Pay attention to feelings that emerge now, but avoid letting them rule. You might also be in reaction mode, so keep things as natural as possible. With the Moon’s move into your privacy sector later today, you’d do well with relaxing and healing activities for a couple of days. Mercury heads back into your creative solar fifth house today for a stay until the 29th. Mercury was recently in this sector (from August 25th to September 23rd) but couldn’t complete its transit due to a retrograde backup. In the coming weeks, you’ll be in an excellent position to move fun projects and pursuits forward. You’ll have more confidence in sharing your ideas and thoughts with others, and you may very well stand out for your unique viewpoint or intelligence.
CancerEarly today, you may be dealing with minor troubles connecting confidently with others, dear Cancer. It can be challenging to see reputation and professional matters clearly, and confusion over where you’re ultimately heading could affect personal relationships. Even so, relationship issues that reach a head today also get you over a critical hump, and the rest should be uphill–in other words, it’s a turning point. Also today, Mercury moves into your sector of home and family and will continue to influence this part of your solar chart until the 29th. Mercury recently spent some time here but then backed up due to a retrograde and didn’t have a chance to complete its transit. Going forward, you’ll get the opportunity to resume conversations and projects or plans with family and those related to house and home. Projects might gain momentum now. It’s an excellent time for doing some deep thinking and renewing of old methods.
LeoThere can be some sensitivity to social interactions and communications early today, dear Leo. Watch for making gestures or comments that don’t express what you feel. There is a tendency to live too much in the head and miss the subtle cues in the process. Mercury moves into your sector of communication today, creating a natural flow of learning, connecting, and communicating that lasts until the 29th. Mercury spent time here from August 25-September 23 but backtracked while retrograde. As you advance, projects you left unfinished may resume. Also, information you need arrives, and you have more time to explore personal interests.
VirgoWith matters of the heart or finances, your vulnerabilities can be in the spotlight early today, dear Virgo. It’s not easy pinpointing whether you need comfort and familiarity or excitement. Decision-making could be emotionally-driven or based on fear and insecurity, so you may want to wait for a better, clearer day to make crucial decisions. If someone’s not seeing matters of security or finances in the same way as you right now, try to be patient. You might also feel some tension regarding having enough resources to fund your pursuits. You may need to confront a financial or ownership matter to get over a hump. Take notes on what is triggering your frustrations or fears now, as this is what you will need to focus on building up to move forward. Also today, Mercury leaves your sign and enters your solar second house for a stay until the 29th. Mercury spent August 25-September 23 in this sector but retreated into your sign while retrograde. As you advance, you approach your finances from a new, refreshed perspective. It’s a good time to develop solid money-making ideas or pay more attention to understanding your current resources and assets.
LibraIt can be challenging to go after what you want directly early today, dear Libra. Relating healthily with a partner or peer is not straightforward either. With Venus, your ruler and in your sign, opposite Chiron, you are unlikely to see eye to eye with a significant person in your life. Alternatively, you might focus on a need or fear that you hadn’t acknowledged in yourself. Still, you are learning more about yourself through your relationships, and you should take this opportunity to reflect, repair, and grow. Mercury enters your sign today and will stay in Libra until the 29th. You hosted this planet of communications very recently–from August 25-September 23–but during its retrograde, it retreated into your privacy sector. As such, you had some mulling over, thinking twice, and processing to do. Now and as you advance, you’re in a great position to express yourself, make sharper decisions, and delight others with your communications. You’ll feel a nice burst of mental energy, and projects that didn’t gain momentum last month will begin to move forward.
ScorpioWith a Venus-Chiron opposition early today, dear Scorpio, you could be concerned with where you stand with others. Of course, it’s normal to worry a little, but it becomes unhealthy if overdone. Wrestling with insecurities is possible, but it’s a good time to notice the behaviors holding you back from pursuing your goals. In the process, watch for the tendency to be too hard on yourself. While you shouldn’t avoid your responsibilities, you should try not to take them so seriously that you lose yourself in them. If your thinking is swinging between imagining the best and the worst, try to nip this in the bud since it won’t do you any favors. The truth probably lies somewhere in between. Also today, Mercury moves into your privacy sector for a stay until the 29th. Mercury recently visited this area of your solar chart (from August 25-September 23), but, while retrograde, it returned to your social sector. Now and as you advance, you’re looking at life a little differently and picking up information you missed in the past, perhaps while you were too busy to notice. It’s a time to review projects, work behind the scenes, and enjoy a break from overthinking.
SagittariusThere are confusing energies possible early today centering around friends, love, or projects dear to your heart, dear Sagittarius. This is likely due to a lack of clarity about who or what to value as Venus opposes Chiron. As such, it’s best to control behavior that may give you a reason for regret later, such as quick decisions in a relationship or impulsive spending. The Moon heads into your work and health sector later today, prompting the need to create some order in your daily affairs. Also today, Mercury moves into your social sector for a transit that lasts until the 29th. It visited this area of your solar chart very recently–from August 25-September 23–before it went on a retrograde backup. Now and as you advance, you’re in a strong position for networking. Pursuits you started last month now gain momentum, and you’re finding the right information to move new initiatives forward. This cycle encourages a more relaxed rapport with associates, friends, and networks. It’s also an active period for innovative and enterprising thinking.
CapricornEarly today, with Venus opposite Chiron, dear Capricorn, you might watch for reading a situation from a place of insecurity. Resolve to learn as much as possible from your interactions rather than dwelling on problem areas. Watch and listen, but consider your fears in the process and how they may interfere with healthy relating patterns. Events occurring now may very well open up old wounds. It’s vital to view differences as chances to learn about other perspectives rather than see them as threatening or concerning. Mercury moves back to the top of your solar chart today, where it will transit until the 29th. Mercury was there very recently–from August 25-September 23–but then retreated due to a retrograde cycle. Now and as you advance, you’re in a great position to share your ideas with others, particularly in public or professional settings. You’ll gain momentum for ideas and plans that were delayed last month. You get to fill in the details for long-term goals in the weeks ahead.
AquariusKeep in mind that we can be defensive early today, dear Aquarius, due to a Venus-Chiron transit. Before it spirals, consider whether or not it’s better to look for the deeper meaning in a situation. There is very likely to be another side to the story. You could feel like you are at a turning point in a relationship, and today’s events could call up old hurt or problems. Learn from what opens up, even if it’s not entirely comfortable to face problem areas. The Moon heads into your home and family sector later today, encouraging you to take a break and refresh yourself. Mercury moves into your solar ninth house of spirit and adventure, where it will stay until the 29th. This transit began but didn’t complete from August 25-September 23 due to a retrograde backup. Now, you’re ready to move forward. In the weeks ahead, thinking broadly helps you see the bigger picture. You’ll be expanding your mind and your interests. You seek to understand your life and the world around you. Studies or topics of interest that you may have put on the shelf last month now move forward. It’s a wonderful cycle for an optimistic frame of mind.
PiscesComplex feelings are possible early today, dear Pisces. However, clearing the air or putting something behind you can feel good. There can be issues that stir up feelings of anxiety or possibly even guilt, but do your best not to let these drive your behavior. The Venus-Chiron opposition helps us by bringing problem areas out in the open. It’s the only way to start repairing and healing. Also today, Mercury heads into your intimacy sector where it will stay until the 29th. Mercury spent time in this area of your solar chart recently (from August 25-September 23) but then retreated due to a retrograde backup. You can be more involved and passionately interested in your projects, studies, conversations, and thoughts in the weeks ahead. This cycle is especially favorable for consultations, research, and analysis. You’re likely to make some valuable discoveries with money, debts, motivations, relationships, attachments, and personal psychology.
