Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in a generally favorable period for harmony in close relationships, dear Aries, although some conflict might arise to get to a purer level of peace. Still, areas that have been swept under the carpet can emerge in small ways today. While you’re in good spirits and in shape for improvements in general, it’s not the best time to see your relationships clearly today and tomorrow. You could find yourself at a place where you’re doing so much for others that you feel drained. If you’ve held to a fantasy of a relationship or situation, this can now pose some minor problems. You might think that you’re missing something or that you’ve forgotten to take care of your needs for rest, replenishment of spirit, and spirituality, particularly as this lack relates to your partnerships. Whichever the case, it’s a good time to see things that may have been subtly undermining your connections and interactions.
TaurusYou tend to prioritize your desire to keep the peace and maintain harmony today, dear Taurus. It’s best not to go overboard with this, or you could feel misunderstood or unappreciated. You could instead feel let down by a broken promise. Don’t worry too much if you are a little out of sync with others or your goals–it’s temporary. It can be a time to reevaluate matters and allow yourself more time. Find ways to infuse more meaning, pleasure, or imagination into your work or chores for the best results now. If you find yourself restlessly indulging or craving things, it may be that you need to get in better touch with your needs. Ultimately, you’re moving to a state of feeling more satisfied and empowered through your attention to your work, health, chores, and money matters. If you feel overworked or underappreciated, take care of your affairs or put them on hold until you feel the pleasure of certainty return.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your solar second house, dear Gemini, and it makes sense to seek out grounding activities that help you connect with your body’s needs and with the here and now. Still, with today’s transits, there is some tendency to see a situation the wrong way, especially if it’s too close to your heart. Wishful thinking can blur perceptions related to romance, business, and long-term planning. It’s hard to be sure about making a significant commitment or decision. Hunches can be a little difficult to trust temporarily, making it wiser to remain on the fence until your head clears. Aim to avoid overcompensating for feeling uncertain and make time for rest or time out instead.
CancerWhile activities with clear goals tend to fare well this week, dear Cancer, matters of the heart are not as straightforward. There can be some division due to uncertainty, which can leave you in an ambivalent state on a social level. The desire to do something different or unusual can be healthy, but your heart isn’t all in, largely because you seek more peace and familiarity these days. Try not to stay on the fence for too long. You might find that staying in limbo is more draining than simply making a decision and living with it. There’s no use wasting energy worrying about the little things. For the big stuff, however, it’s best to wait things out. You may need to regroup in the face of minor restlessness or uncertainty. It’s best not to make waves with confidence taking a brief dip. Take a lesson from the day and consider ways to incorporate your spiritual and emotional needs into your life more effectively going forward.
LeoIf you’re experiencing periodic discontent on a social level, dear Leo, you’re likely to feel this more intensely today and part of tomorrow. Nevertheless, not knowing your heart today may tempt you to avoid the truth in your relationships. It’s probably better to admit uncertainty and move on for now. Otherwise, you could end up only spinning your wheels. There could be unspoken desires or a sense that you want something but can’t put your finger on what it is. You could also be teetering between wanting to keep things light and straightforward, and craving more depth and meaning from your interactions. Try not to allow distractions such as these to bring you down. Aim to take more time to get in touch with your needs. It’s a better time to keep things status quo than to push ahead. It probably won’t pay to make waves if confidence is dipping or you don’t have all the tools you need to manage a situation. This is temporary and can help you reorient yourself. A confidence dip or some indecision is likely a signal that you need to regroup and rest — or take a break from overthinking.
VirgoThis week brings excellent energy for moving a money or business matter forward, dear Virgo. Still, there can be odd desires or cravings that seem to come out of nowhere, along with a sense that you shouldn’t indulge. Some things are up in the air, and it can be tempting to escape responsibility, hide something about yourself, or appease when you should probably stand up for yourself. If you are uncertain, ride things out until you are clearer. At the same time, keep watch for a tendency to focus on everything except what deserves your attention! Superficial attempts to make yourself feel better are unlikely to satisfy and may even cost valuable time, energy, and possibly money. You might also be craving a better connection with someone who might help you make some decisions and choices. As it stands, you can feel a little out of sync for the time being. It’s best to put overthinking on hold. You can feel a bit out of touch with your intuition, making it difficult to trust your instincts, but with some rest, you’ll figure things out.
LibraWhile this is a generally robust period for your personal plans and pursuits, dear Libra, there can be uncertainty in spots today and tomorrow. You’re likely experiencing a temporary lull that slows you down long enough to explore alternate routes and to make useful adjustments. You could feel a little put upon or dissatisfied with your current projects or work. Feeling under the weather may be a signal that you’re not listening to your needs for more imagination in your life. Take care of yourself rather than doing everything for everyone else and forgetting what you need in the process. Avoid people-pleasing as a quick fix for achieving the peace and harmony you crave. Instead, aim to dream and let your intuition engage. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should probably avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime.
ScorpioYou need time to process and digest recent experiences with an emphasis on your solar twelfth house these days, dear Scorpio. Today, part of you is afraid of letting go of a fantasy or ideal, but unrealistic expectations can lead to discomfort. Vague dissatisfaction can weave in and out. Needs that come on suddenly and don’t make a lot of sense are probably things that only serve to lead you astray right now. Aim to connect with your true needs or work on your happiness rather than looking to others to bring you joy. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them is the key now. A temporary lull can also slow you down long enough to explore alternate routes. After a brief spell of feeling doubtful or unmotivated, you’ll find it easy to tune out the non-essential. Fortunately, you have the Moon in your spirit sector today, and you’re finding reasons to feel inspired despite minor lags.
SagittariusThe social side of your life and your plans and dreams are in focus and in good shape these days, dear Sagittarius. Still, there may be a misunderstanding or some off-timing that could leave you feeling uncertain today. People, groups, or relationships you have idealized could prove a bit disappointing, or inconsistencies or procrastination about matters in your home or personal life can wear you down, leaving you vaguely guilty or restless. Look to address the root of a problem, but if you can’t seem to get at it, it may be wise to avoid going off on tangents. Rest and reflect when you can, or consider focusing on one special task at a time.
CapricornWhile this is a generally strong time for productivity and responsibilities, dear Capricorn, there can be some ups and downs or fluctuating inspiration to manage. There are times like today when you may need a break from performing. You might agree to something to please someone, then later regret that you weren’t upfront. People and problems can demand a little too much of your attention. Watch for misconceptions today. Circumstances seem to test your vulnerabilities, but you can move beyond this, or you get the chance to sort everything out to your advantage later.
AquariusWith the Moon in your work and health sector all day, dear Aquarius, the practical side of life is holding your interest more often than not. Social or emotional distractions make it difficult to focus your energy in spots today, however. It’s not easy to see how you can practically manage everything you’d like to do–or where to begin. If you feel slightly let down, it may be that you need some emotional refreshment. There can be vague problems or disconnects that may leave you feeling somewhat out of sync. Some confusion about money, resources, or know-how can subtly get in the way of personal enjoyment or pursuing a new interest. However big your plans and ideas are, avoid rushing to implement them until you feel more confident. There can be a reminder to honor your needs for imagination, daydreaming, and spiritual sustenance because ignoring these things can get you to a state of easy distraction and restlessness.
PiscesTransits now can introduce some cause for hesitation or pause in spots today and tomorrow, dear Pisces. A small bump in the road or a temporary dip in your confidence can help slow you down and reorient you. Try not to allow wishful thinking to override your common sense, as there is some tendency to see what you want to see. Nevertheless, you may feel slightly out of sync with others, and the temptation might be to compensate by going out of your way to make them happy. It may be better to aim to learn your own needs rather than spend your time and drain your energy trying to figure out what others want. If motivation levels are dipping a little, it may only be a signal to regroup.
