Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be a tendency today to focus on what’s not working rather than what is in your relationships in spots today, dear Aries. Differences in opinion could be about balance, doing one’s share, and treating one another equally. There is a strong tendency for people to harp on syntax errors or words expressed rather than the meaning behind them, which can lead to conflicts. Aim to do your part to avoid misunderstandings. A possible dilemma occurs if you want to be productive but have difficulty concentrating due to emotional or social concerns. To some extent, looking at the dysfunctional elements of your relationships can be helpful, but if it is taken too far it becomes counter-productive. Ideally, out of minor frustrations can come wonderful new insights. The Moon moves into your spirit and adventure sector later today, stirring a desire to break out of yourself and heavier emotions.
TaurusInflated expectations of others or circumstances can get the best of you if you allow them to today, dear Taurus. Go light if you can. It may be better to view social blunders as simple mistakes and be the one who focuses on the positive today. Still, it can be difficult to concentrate with social or romantic problems on the brain, and it can be challenging to socialize or enjoy yourself if you’re neglecting the work you feel the need to do. Pace yourself today, and take things one step at a time for the best results. Avoid taking mental disconnects with others to heart now, as the mind and the heart are unlikely to be on the same page temporarily. The Moon’s move into your solar eighth house later today turns your attention to deeper matters and might reveal a desire you’ve ignored or overlooked.
GeminiWith your ruler, Mercury, in minor challenging aspects today, dear Gemini, you could be feeling a little unsettled, particularly as you try to fill your needs for security and excitement at once. Sometimes, a symptom of inner unrest is a tendency to focus too intensely on making changes in the home that aren’t necessarily productive. Another possible sign is a desire to escape routines whenever feasible. However you express inner discontent now, this may be a time when you’re itching to do something different but having a hard time envisioning what it is you’d like to change. There can also be a problem communicating from the heart, which can lead to misunderstandings. While you can be excited to share your ideas, people can be quite sensitive now, and it’s all too easy to rub someone the wrong way. Avoid flip decisions and try to stay in the moment. The Moon moves into your partnership sector later today, and this can stimulate a desire for good company.
CancerToday’s transits aren’t ideal for realistic thinking and communicating, dear Cancer, as lines are crossing, and there could be a sense that someone’s being insincere. This may simply be a disconnect between the heart and the mind and nothing more. Dealing with others who are unsure of themselves can be frustrating, as there can be misunderstandings. Try not to overthink, and as the day progresses, spend some time on more frivolous, mind-clearing activities in order to detox. Aim to be more self-aware today rather than chase an impulse or sudden desire. Later today, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and you’re looking to straighten out or organize an area of your life.
LeoWatch for a tendency to doubt others’ sincerity or to read too much into situations today, dear Leo. People may not express themselves clearly, and there can be a general disconnect between the mind and the heart, so aim to rise above the more minor problems. You can be quite enthusiastic today, but you’re not always connecting well with others. Nervous tension can get you going, but you could burn out quickly if you’re riding on it. Be alert not only to what you say but how you say it, as the chances of being misunderstood run high and are especially strong if we are too rational or logical about sensitive issues. Later today, the Moon moves into your recreation and creativity sector, stirring a greater need to enjoy yourself. You’re coming out of your shell and allowing yourself a little fun.
VirgoThere can be a bit of a fog surrounding the critical details of practical matters today, dear Virgo, even with generally empowering energy for these affairs. It’s temporary. Attempts to talk through problems in a relationship or sweet talk could fall flat. Be alert to coming across in a way that is easily misinterpreted, such as using an overly rational tone when talking about emotional or sensitive matters. However, you can’t please everyone, so do your part and don’t worry beyond that point. It’s best to remain clear if you must communicate something important. Later today, the Moon’s move into your home and family sector can set off a desire to nest, nurture, or rest. You begin to crave more familiar activities, connections, and environments.
LibraThere is some tendency to dwell on the past or to express yourself defensively in spots today, dear Libra. You might have difficulty focusing, and if so, aim to use this time to decompress. It’s all too easy to become distracted, and your mind can wander. The weeks ahead are very much about you after a recent eclipse in your sign, and you could feel today is a hump day. You can be itching to do something new or to express yourself in different ways, but you may not know what it is you want to express or how you’re going to go about it just yet. There can be hypersensitivity to words expressed or not expressed. If you approach a matter in an especially rational or logical way, which is an inclination now, people may not get the feeling behind what you’re trying to say. Be patient.
ScorpioThe Moon is in your sign until later today, dear Scorpio, making it a good time for nurturing yourself and attending to your emotional needs. Still, you could battle conflicting desires, and it can be hard to please both your need for some level of withdrawal and time out and your need for company or the needs of a friend. Avoid stressing over the little things. Try not to say the first thing that comes to your mind for now. Instead, it’s probably better to sort out your thoughts or write them down. Consider, too, that people can be quite sensitive to communications today, but with some tact, you can get around this. Take a break from the routine and relax, if possible. Later today, the Moon moves out of your sign and into your solar second house, helping steady your emotions, although it can also stir the desire to indulge.
SagittariusYou could be struggling with simultaneous needs to perform and desires to resolve problems with friends or to analyze relationships, dear Sagittarius. It’s also possible you do not agree with friends or associates about how to best move your personal and professional goals forward. Breathe through disagreements and keep a professional attitude if it’s required of you. Certainly, you can be quite sensitive to matters surrounding your work and reputation today, but you are also likely to make more of things than they truly are, so aim for perspective. But if there are hurt feelings, this may bring problem areas into the open so that they can be addressed. There could also be a need to swallow your pride for the sake of a relationship you want to keep.
CapricornThere can be some disconnects to manage today, dear Capricorn, but nothing that can’t be handled fairly easily, mainly by giving others the benefit of the doubt. You could be discontented with how your life is currently organized, and determining where to begin sorting it out can be challenging. An overly rational or logical approach to a sensitive matter should be avoided. It’s best to observe and note ideas coming to you and wait before drawing conclusions or final decisions. Things that are out of place can be especially annoying under today’s minor aspects. Try to simplify or tackle things one step at a time, or you will feel that you’re getting nowhere. Later today, the Moon moves into your privacy sector, suggesting a need for some time out, healing activities, and moments to reflect and dream.
AquariusWhile you’ll likely need to deal with mixed messages and minor irritations or delays today, it’s nothing you can’t handle, dear Aquarius. Don’t fret if solutions to problems aren’t immediately apparent — patience is your best friend now. Wind yourself down if you’re getting worked up over trivial matters. Watch for applying too much rationality to a personal or sensitive topic. In turn, try not to put too much weight into what others say in absolute terms and aim instead to assume that their intentions are good. The energy of the recent Solar Eclipse points you in the direction of activities that take you out of your usual routine, if this can be managed. The Moon moves into your social sector later today, and it makes sense to entertain your need for drama-free company or easygoing activities.
PiscesTricky energy is with you in your relationships with a partner or close friend, dear Pisces. However, with a little extra thought into how questions are phrased and the tone of conversations, life tends to smooth over. The most successful relationships happen when each person has flexible “rules” and allowances, and of course, this has to happen both ways. Aim for contentment and allow for some ambiguity. With some patience, things get back to normal. You might decide on a “soft sell” approach today, as gentleness is the way to go. The Moon moves into your professional sector later today, and you are a little more goal-oriented, taking comfort in a general plan.
