Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesConfusing or disorienting energy is possible early today, dear Aries, with your planetary ruler, Mars, in a challenging aspect to Neptune. With this transit, it’s hard to know where to begin to tackle your projects, or you could experience a temporary questioning of what you’re doing and where you’re heading. Desires are sudden or unusual, distracting you from your path, and they’re probably more about procrastinating than filling a deep need, so do your best to tune out distractions. However, if you’ve been ignoring your needs to escape, rest, or indulge your imagination, this transit reminds you to pay attention. If you can rise above the frustrations of upset schedules or unreliable people and do your own thing, this can be a liberating day. It becomes far easier to focus as the day advances, which helps you escape the feeling of overwhelm that slows you down. Your instincts are good for what lies beneath the surface in any tangible matter. As well, you’re able to turn a job or duty into an adventure.
TaurusUps and downs or confusion with friends and resources are likely early today, dear Taurus. You may feel a little lacking in direction, guidance, or support. It’s tempting to assert yourself if someone is overstepping your boundaries, evasive, or absent when you need them most. Think of this aspect as a road checkpoint when you must confirm you have all the right supplies and fuels before pushing forward with your pursuits. Deflated feelings are possible, but an adjusted plan may be all the better for you. As the day advances, you can benefit from a stronger instinct for recognizing what’s valuable and worth your time. You’re making connections and inspiring people. Listen to someone who sees your talents more clearly than you.
GeminiYou can experience a temporary dip in motivation levels early today if you’re unsure of your ultimate destination, dear Gemini. Remind yourself that you don’t have to have a far-reaching goal or end game to make some progress. Set small challenges or goals and work towards them in the meantime, and eventually, the bigger picture will fill in. Watch that you’re taking actions that serve you well and avoid those things that seem to alienate others, particularly bosses, parents, or the like, or steer your reputation off course. Consider the possibility that others aren’t interpreting your actions as you intend them just for now. The day advances with far less fuzziness. At the same time, rest and reflection suit you most today. Taking time out to restore your emotional core should top your list with the Moon in your privacy sector all day.
CancerEarly today, it’s better to engage your more creative or spiritual needs, dear Cancer, rather than take on too many projects or commitments. Someone can be unreceptive to your advances or is flippant or unavailable. Schedules seem off, and so does timing in general, which requires flexibility. Consider that people are absorbed in their issues, and you may very well enjoy the space and freedom that this affords you to do your own thing. Expectations may need adjustment. A strong sense of self can help save the day, and it improves as the day advances. Your powers of visualization are strong today, and you appreciate being able to connect with others in healthy, mutually beneficial ways.
LeoEarly today, you may need to accommodate a distraction, delay, or disappointment before pushing forward, dear Leo. Fortunately, this influence is temporary and might very well redirect you. In the meantime, the desire to escape or enjoy a change of pace is strong, and if you’ve been hard on yourself energetically recently, you can feel a little disoriented. There can be confusing or bothersome boundary issues in a friendship to sort or wait out. Ideally, you slow down to avoid depletion. Try to avoid borrowing from the future, not only with money but also with time and energy. It becomes easier to focus on what’s doable as the day advances, even if it means making only some progress rather than a big win. You’re especially skilled at making the most of your situation, recognizing the magic of stacking small accomplishments.
VirgoTry to cultivate patience early today, dear Virgo, particularly if your goals are not materializing as soon as you’d like them to–or with others who are not always as quick as you! Relationship issues can distract you now. Someone may not be available when you need them, for example. Your vision may be off when it comes to a significant other or partner, and your imagination can take you on a swing ride, as you can imagine the best one minute and the worst the next. While you’re a little more sensitive to imbalances today, try not to spend too much time on this. In fact, feeling a little deflated can ultimately pull you to a stronger position as you readjust your priorities. Your sense of purpose increases as the day advances. As well, it pleases you to give others the lift they need.
LibraVery little may go according to plan today, dear Libra, which can be disorienting. However, a change of pace may be what you need now. Misreading others’ intentions or actions could be about seeing what you want to see or otherwise feeding wishful thinking. Consider that you may have been ignoring some of your fundamental needs, and it’s gradually worn you down. There may be the need to back something up with facts and details, but you feel too disorganized to do so. Aim to work on these problems in time, particularly if they’re persistent ones. The day picks up nicely as it advances. Your sensitivities and understanding help shed light on darkened spirits, and you enjoy helping. You also enjoy delving more deeply into a special project or topic today.
ScorpioWhile there can be a temporary spell of deflated feelings today, dear Scorpio, the thinking you do now can redirect you in helpful ways. For now, it can be difficult to get satisfaction in relationships with your needs and wants clashing. It may be that part of you is looking for a romantic or spiritual connection, and another part is vying for a deeper, more intimate bond. This may play out with projects instead of relationships — you don’t know how much to give of yourself to a particular pursuit. You’re only half in, and this is a frustrating position for most Scorpios! Focusing on the things you can manage can be helpful to ground you. If you’re feeling particularly sensitive to imbalances, make it your priority to take things easy and aim to explore the areas where you might need some more discipline. As the day advances, it’s far more straightforward to manage your expectations or do wonders with what you have. You’re finding it quite smooth and natural to work with or alongside others.
SagittariusIt may be best to consider visualizing your next move before making it today due to current transits requiring some reorientation, dear Sagittarius. Options can be uncertain, or something/someone is draining you, and you need to take a step back to catch your breath and reimagine your plans. While there can be confusion and exaggeration to the energies of the early day, slowing down and taking a break from overthinking benefit you. As the day advances, applying yourself to constructive activities that bring you down to earth becomes more natural. Confusing elements of your life may seem to fall away as you focus on working towards attainable goals.
CapricornWhat you want may not be entirely clear early today, dear Capricorn, or if you know your desires, how to satisfy them could stump you. You may need to get over a motivation hump with Mars in your sector of work and health clashing with Neptune. Your goals may seem harder to reach or unclear under this influence, but it’s temporary. This effect may be the result of overdoing things or pushing yourself too hard, and taking time to reorient yourself makes a lot of sense, or it may just be a time for a needed checkpoint as you realign your path. For best results, loosen up your schedule enough to make room for creative envisioning before making your next move. As the day advances, you feel a stronger connection to the physical world. It’s easier to hook into a sense of purpose, and your creative and romantic impulses are strong.
AquariusYou could recognize the need for some spiritual or emotional replenishment today, dear Aquarius. While you want to push forward with your endeavors, you should make time for rest or reflection before doing so. Watch for desires and whims that distract you from your goals, though, as these may be a form of procrastination. Worries about business or money may also leave you concerned about how you’ll finance your new pursuits. Fortunately, you have a knack for doing the sensible thing in the face of confusing situations. And, it’s easier to organize your thoughts and your priorities as the day advances. You’re getting yourself into a healthier frame of mind. Energies are also good for the sense you can restore your emotional authenticity by spending some time with yourself.
PiscesEnergy levels may be up and down or unreliable, and timing can be off early today, dear Pisces. You might crave some guidance, a sign, or a feeling of direction, but it can be difficult to find. Ideally, this state of mind nudges you to get in better touch with your inner guide or intuition. Watch for procrastination in its many distracting forms. As the day advances, a sense of purpose is easier to find. Others’ support or interest seems more forthcoming when you’ve resolved to handle something yourself! Still, your interest grows in learning new things, diversifying, and making connections. Conversations are healthier or more productive. Personal magnetism is strengthening.
