Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe day holds some promise of pleasant interactions and discoveries, dear Aries. A smooth, easygoing approach to others and your work yields the best results now. You might find some sweet spots for happy exchanges. With Mercury is on the verge of turning retrograde, we should be a little more careful about what we communicate, generally speaking. Even so, today’s energies are mostly pleasant for expressing yourself. A Mercury-Venus aspect helps you find the right balance between light and serious. It’s a good time to enjoy your work or duties, particularly if you mix in a pleasant social element. Your intuition regarding health or work methods is strong, although you may need to reserve judgment since you’re still missing some important information. You might meet someone interesting or benefit from new information as you pursue your work or health goals. Teaching, guiding, and learning are prominent themes today. There can be benefits through past work, good deeds, and experience, particularly in your profession.
TaurusThis week can have its ups and downs, dear Taurus, but a Mercury-Venus transit today suggests happy opportunities to connect and express yourself. This transit reminds you of the pleasure of casual exchanges. Detaching yourself or communicating just for the pleasure of it without the need for an end goal can smooth things out. Conversations about entertainment or relationships can be in focus. The beauty may very well be in how you communicate more than what you are expressing. Mercury is on the verge of turning retrograde, and a Sun-Mars opposition tomorrow also points to a turning point. As such, it’s not an ideal day to make big decisions. This doesn’t mean you can’t have satisfying exchanges that boost up your mood. For now, it feels good to make tentative plans and toy with ideas. Conversations about love, children, creative arts, hobbies, or entertainment can be pleasing and beneficial. Ideas through networking, courses, or extracurricular activities can inspire you.
GeminiThis week can feel in many ways like a turning point, dear Gemini, and emotions or perceptions can be changeable. Still, today’s transits help boost you. Focusing your attention on a special project can be useful. Your increased desire to find peace in your domestic life, family, and work can lead to agreements and favorable circumstances. Good energy is with you for solving problems and relating well with others. Conversations can be helpful, and you might enjoy mending fences and expressing your feelings. Tomorrow’s Mercury station suggests that finalizing decisions may not yet be wise, but you can enjoy the process now. Someone in your life could inspire you to seek out happier circumstances. You’re taking things in stride today, but you’re also more inclined to reach out and boost others up. You can enjoy more meaning and purpose through your deep relationships, career, and attachments.
CancerThere can be some scattering of your energies in this changeable week, dear Cancer. Still, today’s energies are good for getting the chance to enjoy your interactions and learn something interesting. There are opportunities to rise above feelings of unrest, particularly if you focus on friendly gestures or creative pursuits. Romance, comfort, and finances are in favor with today’s Mercury-Venus aspect. You’re magnetizing good things to you quite naturally, and you express your feelings and ideas with the same ease. Complicated problems seem to be easier to understand when you feel supported and approach them in a relaxed manner. You’re in generally good shape for negotiations, creative writing, problem-solving, and relationships with love interests, acquaintances, and children. You can be feeling quite confident and hopeful about your projects and relationships. Consider that with Mercury turning retrograde tomorrow, some things agreed upon now can come up for review later. Even though you may be waiting for some information or dealing with delays, exchanges are pleasant. You’re learning through others’ viewpoints and expanding your experiences in the process.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Leo, stirring your desire for more emotional freedom and spontaneity. There can be some indecision or turbulence this week, but today holds promising energy for powerful and helpful musings, exchanges, and communications. You’re in a good position to make your money work for you, or there are favorable developments with family, home, financial affairs, or purchases. You’re in good shape for constructive or supportive conversations. Thinking is excellent for finances and domestic concerns, and family life or security matters are strongly on your mind. Nevertheless, conclusions or final decisions may not be wise since further considerations are likely to turn up later. Helping out can be satisfying today, and you can experience new feelings of inspiration regarding your daily affairs, services, work, or wellness programs.
VirgoWhile there can be some fits and starts this week, dear Virgo, some things work ideally, especially projects dear to your heart. Today, you might fully enjoy studying, teaching, and connecting regardless, and your appeal gets a boost. Current projects excite and motivate you. While life is busy, it feels energizing rather than chaotic to you. You might be looking into a new idea or discovering a new interest. In the weeks ahead, you’ll likely rediscover past pursuits with great results. Today, your planetary ruler, Mercury, harmonizes with Venus, which is currently transiting your sign. This transit frames you particularly well in nearly everything you do! However, Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow, and it’s best not to make significant changes, decisions, or statements. Nevertheless, you might thoroughly enjoy toying with ideas and possibilities. You’re putting more faith in the people and pursuits in your life now.
LibraToday’s energies favor cooperation and problem-solving, dear Libra. You’re in an excellent position to think/talk through a problem or gain some clarity about a matter. Mind you, Mercury is about to turn retrograde tomorrow, and there could be more to the story later, but today’s exchanges are pleasant and sincere, and it’s refreshing. This can be a particularly connected or communicative day, even though there can be some misunderstandings. You can struggle in spots with indecision, but there are also opportunities. There are benefits to occasionally exploring your emotions from an intellectual perspective. You might also come up with interesting ideas about how to improve your financial state. Past love can come to mind or resurface in a significant way. Your speech or writing is more creative and inspired. Indoor or domestic and quiet comforts appeal more than usual. You could be building a stronger sense of belonging or connectedness.
ScorpioThis is not an ideal week for clarity, in general, dear Scorpio, but today’s energies bring some nice cooperation or stir a feeling of camaraderie. You might enjoy sharing ideas, personal thoughts, feelings, and memories if you can detach a little and avoid taking things too much to heart. You have a stronger sense than usual about which of your ideas have true potential for success in the long term as Mercury and Venus harmonize. You may gain clarity about a person’s feelings for you, or you could thoroughly enjoy a conversation about the future. Even so, there’s likely to be more thinking to do about topics that emerge today, so save finalizing plans for later. Mercury is about to turn retrograde in your sign. For now, playing with different ideas and seeing things in a new light can be satisfying. Your self-image improves, which has positive effects all around as you take better care of yourself and pay more attention to the mind/spirit element of your life.
SagittariusThis is a turning point week, dear Sagittarius, and it’s generally best not to make major decisions if you can help it since new information is likely to pop up later. However, there are some sweet spots, and today’s energies are particularly easygoing. Themes of cooperation, conversation, and pleasant exchanges are likely. Even though you are keeping some things to yourself and unsure whether or not you should be sharing certain observations, it’s a mostly good time to harmonize with the people around you and take a relaxed, tolerant approach to your life. There is a magical quality to your charisma, appeal, and creative output. It can be a popular time for you as you stand out as unique and desirable. A Mercury-Venus aspect helps you come to an understanding with someone or with a long-standing issue if you aim to detach and take an objective look at things. Mind you, there is more to the story that’s unfolding, making it wise to delay finalizing plans.
CapricornToday’s Mercury-Venus helps smooth things over in an otherwise somewhat turbulent week, dear Capricorn. Your appeal shines brightly, and self-expression seems more flowing and easy than usual. Friendly gestures or overtures can figure strongly today–people are more inclined to show their interest in you. Building friendships and mending broken fences are in favor. This transit tends to improve your outlook, and a Jupiter-Neptune influence, also in effect now, boosts your faith. Detaching yourself just enough to see or communicate things more objectively can be a useful exercise today. It may be true that current transits are stirring up some chaos, but you’re rising above it. You may be building your confidence in yourself as you help and support others, and you’re learning about your more profound needs.
AquariusThis week can bring on some turning points, dear Aquarius, and it’s not the most decisive or clear period. However, today brings smooth energy for expressing yourself and cooperating with others. You may get the chance to clarify your position on a matter or arrive at an amicable agreement. You’re finding a lot to love in your leisure time or with pastimes, and you can be in the pleasant position of doing some casual fact-gathering that’s productive and interesting. You might learn things that help you in your career, talking about plans for the future or long-term goals, and improving your reputation. Even so, you’d be wise to take on a wait-and-see approach since Mercury is about to turn retrograde, and there is more to the story that’s unfolding before you. Today, you’re enjoying playing with ideas. Your social life and friends base may expand, or plans and dreams could motivate you.
PiscesYou might enjoy lively exchanges that inspire you and renew your spirit now, dear Pisces. This week can be a bit chaotic at times, but you also have some pleasant transits that inspire you. Benefits and good feelings come from connecting, particularly on romantic and one-on-one levels. Good communication skills can reverberate positivity to other areas of life as well. This can be a time of interesting conversations and the satisfying sharing of ideas. Pairing up with someone can be pleasant and rewarding, or there can be increased warmth in a relationship. Do keep in mind that Mercury is on the verge of turning retrograde, and you might later reconsider decisions or agreements made now. As such, while today’s observations are helpful, it’s best to reserve judgment or keep options open. A wait-and-see approach makes good sense today.
