Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today’s energies are suitable for connecting with associates or people who can help you reach your more practical goals, dear Aries. Applying yourself to your work comes more naturally to you now, and your ideas find satisfying outlets. You can feel pleasantly busy, although it can be difficult to focus or concentrate at times. This is just fine if you’ve been working hard and now need to release tension. If not, be a little more vigilant than usual with details that you might easily overlook with the Moon’s opposition to Jupiter across the communication sectors in your solar chart. However, fantastic opportunities are presenting this week, and a supportive emotional environment boosts your mood. You’re finding ways to combine responsibility and independence creatively.
Today’s energies are good for slowing down and enjoying the moment, dear Taurus. Still, there can be some restlessness or indecision as the Moon opposes Jupiter now. Part of you could feel that you should be more involved than you are. Or, you may not be sure whether you want to go your own way or lean on others. Priorities may be hard to decide upon, or excess spending or borrowing can be an issue now. Take steps to wind down, which gets easier and, in fact, quite natural as the day advances. Strategizing about how to improve your moments of downtime can produce excellent results today. As well, this week brings reliable energy for finding ways to satisfy both your need for new experiences and your desire to lay low and regenerate. It might mean a restful journey or new activity that refreshes you.
There can be some restless moments today with the Moon in your sign opposite Jupiter, dear Gemini. Still, it’s a generally fine time for understanding your needs a little better. Watch for the temptation to overdo or overindulge. Others’ demands on you may feel a bit excessive. Or, you may be attempting to please someone and at the same time striving for independence. Whichever the case, it’s best to avoid excess. You’re better off keeping things even and smooth now so that you’re not at a disadvantage later. Still, you may have felt overcommitted in the past few days, and you require a change of emotional scenery. The day also holds lovely opportunities, and you might arrive at a comfortable place of intimacy with a friend, or you get the chance to see a relationship in a new light. Willingness to go deep and to be emotionally brave can improve a bond.
The Moon continues to spend time in the sign just behind yours, dear Cancer, pointing to a need for reflection and a bit of anonymity. The Moon will move into your sign tomorrow, starting a new lunar cycle and introducing a fresh start. Today is better for attention to behind the scenes. Still, it can be hard committing to this fully today as the Moon opposes Jupiter, which is currently encouraging you to enjoy being busy. Something has to give to balance your life better, particularly when it comes to working and resting or attending to physical needs as well as emotional needs. Even so, you’re in a high position to understand complicated feelings or a complex situation much better. Despite your requirement for downtime, today is active for connecting with a special someone and getting things done. You might gain someone’s support or backing for a work or life-path goal, and this feels good. It’s nice when others understand your ambitions or work situation.
The Moon spends another day in your sector of dreams, hopes, happiness, and friendship, dear Leo, encouraging you to treat yourself to light activities. Relationships also deserve a light touch. It can be a time for catching your breath. Still, the Moon’s opposition to Jupiter can stir up some push-pull energy as you have much going on in your personal life and can find it hard balancing all of your interests. However, you’re in great shape for finding solutions. Try to tame the tendency to overdo so that you can enjoy the conversations or bright ideas of the day. Another influence in play today and this week can lead to the discovery of novel and intelligent ways of combining work and adventure, learning, or travel. Your openness to new ideas and concepts can positively impact your job and daily tasks.
The Moon spends another day at the top of your solar chart, dear Virgo, encouraging you to stay on your toes and pay attention to your priorities. Still, its opposition to Jupiter challenges you since much is going on inside or in your personal life, and it can be challenging to juggle all that you want to accomplish now. Your plate is full with all that’s happening both personally and professionally, and there is a temptation to pile more on, which of course, should be watched. Reminders of the rules and your responsibilities can serve as a useful checkpoint. Also today, a Pluto-Chiron influence that comes in and out of strong influence frequently this year suggests finding ways to combine fun and intimacy creatively. You seem to understand that it doesn’t have to be one or the other, and your relationships (and mood) benefit.
The Moon spends another day in your sector of spirit, dear Libra, and it harmonizes with the Sun in your sign. Still, the Moon opposes Jupiter, and for a couple of hours, you can feel a little tense or in a situation of “too much information.” Too many choices can be overwhelming! You have a bigger than usual appetite for taking on new interests or developing existing ones, and this is usually great. Still, the temptation may be to go overboard with this. Watch for taking on too much when releasing tension is better for you now. As well, try not to get lost in a sea of information with so many choices that you forget your priorities. However, it’s not a day for sticking to a script. Partnership and family matters may combine in pleasing, creative ways now and this week, which feels reinforcing. You’re also finding it easier to balance keeping your own counsel and allowing some feedback into your life.
The Moon’s opposition to Jupiter today can point to a tendency to overindulge or overspend, dear Scorpio. However, kept in check or simply in moderation, you can enjoy yourself without guilt. The Moon spends another day in your solar eighth house, and you’d prefer to connect with your deeper feelings rather than push them to the side. Part of you may want to test your feelings or limits, and another part wants to simplify, and the sooner you find the middle ground, the better. Later today, you seem to settle in and get comfortable with yourself, feeling far less divided. Also today, your ruler, Pluto, connects creatively with Chiron, and while this influence is a long-term one, it’s especially strong now. You could discover the perfect project or pursuit, or a personal interest might transform into a vocation. Work and tasks can be more pleasurable, and this brings out your desire to do your best. Creative writing or expression can be healing and refreshing.
The Moon spends the day in your opposite sign again today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s best not to push things. There can be some tension between your desire for companionship and your urge for more freedom or independence. Consider that paying some extra attention to a significant someone’s plans or needs can be rewarding, allowing you to take a refreshing break. You don’t have to agree with them, but what others say may very well get you thinking in new ways, and this can give you greater insight into your next move. Today’s energies are also powerful for finding a creative way to satisfy your desire for comfort and familiarity as well as your need for some excitement. It’s a time to improve your emotional and mental outlook as you find new and powerful ways to resolve problems. Truly satisfying ways to enjoy yourself may be discovered now, and they give you a strong sense of meaning and self-control.
Part of you may only want to tuck yourself away today, dear Capricorn, but the other part of you wants to shine. The Moon in your work and health sector today can prompt you to spend more time handling your daily affairs, but its opposition to Jupiter can point to some inner resistance. You may question what it is you genuinely want–escape and peace of mind or the putting of problem areas behind you. Either side doesn’t seem wholly satisfying, but your best bet is reaching a middle ground. Getting organized is something that will benefit you at this point, so consider fending off rebellious urges so that you can stick to the task until completion. A refreshing break or detour may help. Also today, you may have the chance to seriously enhance a family relationship or home life and living conditions. You’re seeking a style of living that genuinely represents you.
The Moon and Sun harmonize today, dear Aquarius, and because they’re in complementary signs, this transit tends to make things easy for you. Even so, there is some restlessness to battle again today, but it’s probably best for you to allow yourself the luxury of some release from pressure or tension. Although you may want to give a personal project or endeavor your all, there can be a call to share or collaborate that can interrupt your efforts. Or, you could feel a bit torn between personal interests and a commitment to someone. You’ll attract the most luck if you tone down the tendency to overdo or overindulge. New ideas about how to deal with old problems can come to you, and they’re especially smart. Conversations can help you move past misgivings or regrets, and this gives you a strong sense of being emotionally in charge of your life. Guiding or helping someone can be part of this and quite personally rewarding.
The Moon spends another day at the bottom of your solar chart today, dear Pisces, continuing to emphasize your need to pay more attention to your personal life. The Moon’s opposition to Jupiter can point to some struggle giving yourself to this idea, but it’s temporary. As well, the imbalance can lead to a good middle ground. Dialing things back a little can help you pull positive energy and healing through comforting, quiet activities. Still, there is terrific energy with you for rewarding contact with others. Connecting with someone through similar values can be satisfying and reinforcing. Thoughts about money or resources can be illuminating today, and helping out a friend can be a pleasant detour.
