Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThings can feel up in the air or inconclusive today, dear Aries, as it’s a time of feeling things out, observing, and making adjustments. Something from your past, confusing dreams, or a feeling that you’ve missed a deadline or responsibility can nag at you. Forgive yourself if you haven’t met a goal. You might feel a bit off or out of step now, especially if you’ve been overdoing something or forgotten to take care of your needs for rest, spirituality, and replenishment of spirit. Consider that restlessness might motivate you to make improvements, but it can also lead you astray right now. Try not to let impulses rule, as they are unlikely to lead you down the right path today. If you can manage to avoid overdoing, you’ll conserve energy for true opportunities later on. As you pay more attention to your mental and emotional health, you feel stronger in other life departments.
TaurusYou might wrestle with some uncertainties today, dear Taurus, and they may be a cue to take a break. If you feel overworked or underappreciated, take care of your affairs or put them on hold until you feel the pleasure of certainty return. You’re more sensitive than usual to imbalances in your love or social life. Your daily routine, work, or other practical affairs can be tricky to handle if you’re on the fence about a matter. It’s best not to let a temporary lack of motivation color your choices. Aim to accept that you don’t have all the answers, which can considerably improve your comfort levels. The day does seem to challenge you to break out of a rut or pattern that prevents growth. Be as mindful as possible, for if you act out without self-awareness, you may be taking risks, overpaying, or jumping into or out of something too quickly. If you feel overwhelmed, it’s a good idea to start with a small task and then work your way up to bigger ones. Explore your feelings, but perhaps wait to act on them when there is steadier energy. As the day advances, it becomes far easier to go with the flow and find inspiration.
GeminiWhen there’s some uncertainty to contend with, as is likely to be the case today, dear Gemini, your best bet may be to back off on the mission to know the truth, temporarily. Getting hung up on not knowing can be most distracting! Motivation levels might dip today and over the next couple of days, but take heart that it’s not permanent. It may only be a signal that you need a break to refresh yourself. Try not to let confusion about your larger goals interfere with the enjoyment of the moment, and resolve, instead, to pay more attention to them going forward. Problems now tend to come from overblown expectations. Ideally, your eyes open to areas of life that need improvement. Problems tend to come from overblown expectations. As the day advances, you’re more likely to see the romance, imagination, and beauty in your connections and prospects.
CancerYou may feel the need to regroup today, dear Cancer, as restlessness and uncertainty are likely, but also temporary! These things are especially possible if you’ve been overdoing things or ignoring your needs for emotional refreshment. It’s not an ideal time to make waves with motivation or confidence taking a brief dip this week. Your expectations can leave you feeling vulnerable to mood swings if you’ve set them too high. Listen to what others are saying, but stay centered enough to communicate with your feelings. Do keep in mind that while people are prone to exaggeration today, in general, whatever they’re experiencing seems real to them. Part of you wants to break free from confining patterns and secrets, but you may not have a solid plan for doing so just yet. Avoid creating more problems for yourself by doing too much. As the day advances, your outlook brightens. You might connect with someone special through mind-expanding experiences or non-routine activities. Different viewpoints can be most stimulating to you now.
LeoA dream or plan can hit a snag, dear Leo, but you’ll find it rather easy to get over this hump and into a better position. Routine seems to bring out the worst in you, however. There are times when routine comforts you, but today, it may remind you of your discontent. There can be hot-cold energy with your feelings or in a relationship. You teeter between wanting to keep things light and straightforward and craving more depth and meaning from your interactions. Enthusiasm may take a dip, but this is temporary and perhaps only a message that you need to regroup and rest or take a break. The need to escape or take a detour from the usual routine becomes evident. You may be feeling overloaded if you’ve taken on too much, and it’s now catching up with you. It may not be the most productive of times, but stirrings you feel now may prompt you to make essential changes. Seeking a higher purpose is likely, and it helps you understand your ambitions.
VirgoThis can be a better time to decompress and regroup, dear Virgo, but take notes! Influences today remind you of what you’re missing, but fortunately, as the day advances, you seem to have the vision to fulfill your needs. Until then, you might crave a better connection with someone, but you might feel out of touch with your intuition temporarily, making it difficult to trust your instincts. With some rest, you’ll figure things out. Avoid endlessly weighing the pros and cons of a situation, which keeps you in an uncomfortable state of limbo. Beware, too, of self-deception in a relationship or with finances. If you’re frustrated about not having a clear goal or path, you might consider focusing on smaller tasks for now. You can be tempted to indulge if you’re not in touch with what’s bothering you. Later today, you’re likely to recognize the need for more attention to creativity, imagination, and recreation. As you see your projects, entertainment, love in your life, relationships, and creativity in new ways, life feels fuller and richer.
LibraFixation on problems is a tendency this week, dear Libra, but that alone won’t solve them unless the attitude you bring to the situation is forward-looking. Today, a temporary lull can slow you down long enough to explore alternate routes and make essential adjustments. You could feel a little put upon or dissatisfied with your current projects or work. There could be a feeling of being undervalued, but this is neither permanent nor long-standing. Make a pact with yourself that you’ll pay more attention to your need for imagination in your life. It may be time for some rest and reflection. Do what you can to clear your head. Today’s transits can produce some restlessness, or perhaps more aptly, highlight discontent that’s already present. A long-term plan may need adjustments or expectations reined in now. Fortunately, you begin to regain some inspiration as the day advances. As you view your work, services, or health and wellness routines in a new light, you’re inclined to find more meaning in them.
ScorpioYou might wrestle with some restlessness until you acknowledge the need to check in with your intuition today, dear Scorpio. In many ways, this is a “checkpoint” week as you assess how far you’ve come. Suddenly, you may not feel as clear about your next step or unsure about how to wrap something up. Consider it temporary and a signal to slow down. You can quickly become distracted from routine matters and might be best off indulging in some entertainment, fantasy, or healthy escapism. Ideally, discontent now prompts legitimate efforts to improve and bring about better conditions in your life. Random indulgences won’t make you feel better. While expansion is the first thing on our minds today with Jupiter prominent, moderation in your approach will get you further, so think big, but when it comes to mapping plans out, be realistic with your expectations. Watch for exaggeration now. As the day advances, you might find inspiration through guiding, learning, or advising. People are drawn to you and your ideas.
SagittariusThe motivation to pursue your goals can wane somewhat now, dear Sagittarius, but it’s temporary. This week is about making some adjustments, and you might need to let go or back off a little. Inconsistencies or procrastination about matters in your home or personal life can wear you down, leaving you feeling vaguely guilty or restless. Aim to keep your center while avoiding people-pleasing or doing it all, which can leave you quite exhausted. Consider ways to feed the need for imaginative or creative activities and give your mind a rest. Recent excesses have a way of catching up with you now. As the day progresses, it’s easier to connect with your dreams, ideals, or imagination in constructive, supportive ways. Relaxing and detoxing come more naturally, and it’s precisely what you need at this time.
CapricornYou might consider today, and in many ways, this week, a checkpoint moment, dear Capricorn. It makes sense to reassess your goals or plans. If you’ve been excessive, it may catch up with you now. You could feel tired or disoriented if you’ve been neglecting your need to feed your imagination and spirit. Feeling overwhelmed is temporary, however. Aim to take some time to recollect yourself. Nevertheless, there can be some resistance or blocks experienced now, which can serve as hints that it’s not an ideal time to push forward and enforce your will. You can feel a distinct desire to go your own way when the world seems to want something else from you. Avoid scattering your energy or exaggerating something, which can work against you. As the day advances, you’ll find it easier to look in the right places for catching some inspiration.
AquariusTiming can be just a little off today, dear Aquarius, which suggests it may be best to pull back and realign yourself. It’s not an ideal time to make substantial commitments or promises. There may be some doubt about a belief or topic, or you could have difficulty funding or motivating yourself or others to do the things your mind wants to do. Uncertainty about where you stand, practical matters, or money can factor in. Your attention may turn to an inconsistency that’s hard to shake. Try not to take poor timing to heart. Consider ways to honor your needs for imagination, daydreaming, and spiritual sustenance, since ignoring them can lead to a distracted or restless state. You are more inclined than usual to go overboard helping someone or to do things for others and then find little time to attend to the rest of your life. Aim to get in better touch with your true desires before taking action. Making adjustments and compromises makes sense before going forward. As the day advances, it becomes easier to tap into your imagination. You feel ready to consider potentials and possibilities.
PiscesYou can experience a temporary dip in your motivation today, dear Pisces, which can be a signal to regroup. It can be challenging to focus on practical tasks, as much as you’d like to, and it may be better to devote time to a personal interest or learning opportunity. A small diversion can help you now. You could feel confused about your deeper emotions, attractions, and attachments. The craving for more meaning or excitement in your life can lead to a misstep, so be sure to prioritize or allow yourself some distance from a matter so that you can return to it refreshed, with more objectivity. Consider whether you’ve been going after something too quickly, and if expectations need some adjusting, it can help reduce the pressure. If you’ve been stretching yourself too thin, you now recognize the need to focus. As the day advances, you open up to allow others or situations to inspire you, and your own words and gestures can uplift others.
