Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could feel torn between wanting to collaborate and preferring to stick with what’s most comfortable and secure today, dear Aries. As such, if you can manage it, a compromise makes sense. It’s a day for making adjustments and taking steps to improve your situation. Relationship opportunities and fulfillment through partnerships are in focus, and as the day advances, you’re in great shape to stabilize and secure a connection. The Moon moves into your sector of the mind, and communications with friends can be empowering. You’re seeking more mental excitement and engagement.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your resources sector, dear Taurus, keeping things comfortable and straightforward seems to satisfy most. It’s a good idea to regroup or take time for the things that truly matter. Still, today’s energy is good for seeing where you might improve your work, routines, or self-care pursuits, and there can be some adjustments to make before you feel comfortable. Your ruler, Venus, forms an awkward aspect with Uranus in your sign, and it can be challenging integrating your desire for personal independence and your need to attend to your duties or chores. Fortunately, as the day advances, it’s easier to resist distractions and get into a pleasant routine. Energies stabilize.
GeminiThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Gemini, and you’re more in touch with your wants and desires. Others are attracted to your naturally confident approach. However, you could be taking things rather personally with today’s transits. Discomfort socially might lead to over-indulgent tendencies. You could feel on edge if you feel caged in or if people are trying to pin you down to an answer or a commitment. Take extra breaks or rest periods, if possible. It’s time to shake things up, but do so in ways that don’t rock the important boats! You may need to release frustration; fortunately, you can do so productively as the day advances.
CancerYour heart can be in two places today, dear Cancer, and while you want to surround yourself with the familiar, something calls on you to move out of your comfort zone. While today can get off to an indecisive start, good energy is with you for smoothing things out as the day advances. You’re ready to make the most of a situation. Confronting a problem, rather than sidestepping it, is your best bet now. Keeping your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences, but it’s also important to honor your need for relaxation. The Moon moves into your solar twelfth house today, reinforcing a need to take things easy as you wind down a lunar month. It’s a great time to reflect, rest, and process.
LeoBe sure to watch for communications that don’t express what you truly feel today, dear Leo. In addition, you could be reading too much into what others are saying. You owe it to yourself to look for the positive rather than worry about what you don’t know. Consider that if you have too much on your plate, you may end up feeling quite hemmed in or restless. You have loads of motivation to achieve and produce as the day advances. The trick seems to be to identify what you find most valuable and then tune out distractions. Nevertheless, it’s a good time to honor your needs to contribute and connect with the Moon’s move into your social sector today.
VirgoIt’s not easy to pinpoint whether you need familiarity or excitement today, dear Virgo. The Moon heads into your solar tenth house, encouraging you to shoot higher and attend to your ambitions or larger goals. At the same time, Venus and Uranus form an awkward angle, pitting your needs for comfort and security against your drive to discover or learn new things. Different settings or experiences can be most refreshing, although part of you can resist the urge to do something new. You may need to strike a compromise! Watch that your frustration with indecision doesn’t lead to jumping into something impulsively. Instead, aim to honor both your desire for a predictable pace and your need for a little more stimulation. Later today, you’re getting serious about money or getting organized, and it feels good to do so.
LibraWhile it’s not the best time to actually draw up a plan with fuzzy thinking likely today, dear Libra, you can certainly commit to the need for a plan! There can be extra sensitivity to friends’ reactions and comments, and a tendency to rebel as a result. Consider that you may be spending too much time reacting to your feelings instead of simply connecting with them. Watch for rushing a financial or intimate matter. It certainly gets easier to keep your feet on the ground later today. Venus is currently in your sign and is your planetary ruler, and as it heads toward a harmonious aspect with Saturn, it’s natural to steady yourself and enjoy a more realistic approach to your life.
ScorpioPart of you needs your space and time to get to your own conclusions today, dear Scorpio, and another part would prefer to confer with someone special. With different needs and drives competing for your attention, it’s not the best time for clarity. However, you’re focusing on moving on and improving, and with this attitude, you can put problems behind you today. As well, Venus is heading into harmony with Saturn, and you enjoy more steadiness and practicality as the day advances. A sense that you’re on solid ground emotionally goes a long way to improve your life in many different life departments.
SagittariusThere can be a minor disconnect between your need for involvement and your desire to go your own way today, dear Sagittarius. Divided feelings can surround friends and acquaintances, work, or health. You’re not very clear on who or what to value today, so it makes sense to try to control behavior that may give you a reason to regret later, such as quick decisions in a relationship or impulsive spending. Alternatively, someone could be a little withholding or detached, and you may not know where they stand. Fortunately, you’re clear-headed as the day advances and Venus heads into harmony with Saturn. Someone could surprise you and come through for you, for example.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your work and health sector today, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to handle your practical affairs. It’s not easy to fit in everything you want to do since you have so much on your mind, and it makes sense to simplify. There can be disagreements over values or concepts of love in the first half of the day. If you feel overwhelmed, take steps to bring more balance to your life and ask for assistance. Later today is strong for business or money matters, and you may very well enjoy buckling down and making some satisfying progress on a pursuit. It pleases you to tune out distractions and focus on what’s most important.
AquariusToday’s Moon reminds you of the need for light entertainment and fun, dear Aquarius. You seem to need that extra spark right now, even if it temporarily pulls you off the track. The trick may be to find a good balance. There can be some defensiveness or misinterpretation of social cues with Venus in awkward angle to your ruler, Uranus. Before it spirals, consider whether or not it’s better to drop something and move on. People may not be incredibly confident or reliable at the moment. Centering yourself may be necessary to share yourself more freely and happily with others later. As the day advances, you find it straightforward to focus on something special, and it can be a relief to feel far less scattered or in demand.
PiscesToday’s Moon encourages a reflective frame of mind, dear Pisces. A hiatus can be refreshing now, but you must allow yourself the opportunity! There can be issues that stir up feelings of anxiety or possibly even guilt with current minor challenging transits. Do your best not to let these things interfere with your relationships. It can be temporarily hard to see the true value of people, situations, and material things. Agreements may not be easy until later today. With a few adjustments, you’re likely to feel more confident, and the trick may be to embrace simplicity if possible: tuning out the extras might initially feel a bit boring, but it can smooth out your mood nicely.
