Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Aries, and you can feel nudged forward as information delays lift. Missing links fill in, and these get the ball moving with projects that were put on the back burner. Because Mercury is currently shifting direction, you don’t have the green light for big decision-making just yet. As more information comes in, you’ll feel better equipped to make decisions, particularly related to work, routines, health, and partnerships. If you’ve been waiting for communications, they’re now likely to arrive. This is a day best used for observing rather than taking action since the shift is occurring now. Devise strategies and wait a few days before launching something personally meaningful. More clarity is on its way.
TaurusMercury turns direct today after nearly three weeks of retrograde motion, dear Taurus. As a result, new information or a different perspective can emerge, helping bring clarity to some matters, mainly related to your work, health, creative projects, and romantic issues. It’s not a time for quick or bold moves in the interim. If you aim to treat misunderstandings or slowdowns as a chance to catch your breath and refine your goals, you’ll be in good shape. Recent plans may not seem as necessary as they once did, but the projects that genuinely matter will move forward with you! Right now, it’s best to treat it as a transition day. The Moon moves into your spirit sector, lifting your mood and interest in expanding your mind.
GeminiWith Mercury turning direct today after a retrograde cycle that lasted over three weeks, dear Gemini, you’ll see some progress or forward movement in projects and endeavors that stalled, especially those related to your hobbies, love life, home, or family. There can be more clarity and possibly improved communications in your personal life in the days ahead. These things don’t happen immediately — they’re gradual as Mercury regains speed in the coming days and weeks. It’s best to treat today as a transitional period and exercise patience. You might revisit conversations or problems that confused you in recent weeks, now with more information or variables to consider. Today, you may not have all you need to make the bigger decisions. However, your confidence is building as you turn a corner.
CancerMercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Cancer, and blocks or delays seem to lift. A real sense that you want to move forward comes over you right now. Transportation, learning, educational, family, home, and communication difficulties will likely clear up in the week ahead. Some of your ideas or plans in recent weeks can now seem less necessary or appealing. New information emerges that sets you on a different path. Still, take new projects and developments slowly. It’s best that you treat the day as a transitional one rather than a time for bold moves. Just as Mercury doesn’t immediately resume normal speed, you should ease back into things.
LeoMercury turns direct today after several weeks of retrograde motion, dear Leo, and it can be a friendly nudge forward, particularly on a mental level. Even so, it’s best to take in and process before pushing ahead. Gradually you’ll enjoy more clarity with communications, transportation, friendships, and personal finances. Today requires extra care with communicating, purchases, and facts or figures. Aim to ease back into decisions and projects. While today can be a bit chaotic as we adjust to the change of direction and deal with various problems, this influence is excellent for improved clarity and unblocking areas that fell off the radar or stalled in recent weeks.
VirgoMercury, currently transiting your sign, turns direct after retrograde motion since September 9th, dear Virgo. It started its retrograde cycle in your resources sector. In the coming days and weeks, indecision clears, and, ideally, recent contemplation will pay off, especially with finances, personal plans, health, and work. Delays lift, and periods of limbo end as information or a new perspective emerges. If you’ve been looking back, reviewing, and editing, you’ll begin to enjoy the rewards of these efforts. Just as Mercury doesn’t immediately resume normal speed, you might try to follow a similar path: ease back into things for best results. Today’s Moon works harmoniously with you energetically, and you’re optimistic.
LibraIt’s a good idea to be more aware of how you express yourself today, dear Libra. The planet of communication, Mercury, turns direct after retrograde motion since September 9th. As a result, decisions become more straightforward and delays lift. Many recent misunderstandings will likely clear up in the coming days and weeks. Still, the shift itself can effectively magnify problem areas, so do your best to avoid focusing on trivial matters as Mercury makes its turnaround. Mercury began its retrograde in your sign, then retreated. Now, Mercury turns direct, and you’ll see some recent problem areas untangle, but Mercury won’t return to Libra until the 10th when even more clarity is likely to come. Choices become clearer.
ScorpioMercury ends its retrograde today, dear Scorpio, bringing more clarity to something you’ve been waiting for in the coming days. You’ll see some forward movement in those relationships and endeavors that have encountered delays or blocks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness will clear in the days and weeks ahead. For now, it’s best to take special care in your interactions with others and consider that you may be missing important details. Treat today as a transition day for best results, and avoid jumping to communicate about something prematurely. Although problem areas don’t immediately disappear as Mercury turns direct, you’ll see some real progress as Mercury slowly returns to its normal speed. Information may emerge that helps you make better decisions or choices.
SagittariusMercury turns direct after over three weeks of retrograde motion today, dear Sagittarius, and this can have the effect of unblocking projects and endeavors that have encountered delays since September 9th. The shift occurs today, and it’s best not to rush to implement new plans. Instead, aim to take your time. In the coming days, work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, friends, parents, or managers. Because this retrograde began in your friendship sector and then moved back into your career and reputation house, delays and limbo related to any of these life departments will likely break in the coming days. These matters can turn a corner as new information, or a new perspective emerges.
CapricornMercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Capricorn, and with its direct turn, you’ll soon feel more confident about making important decisions. You’ll also convey your ideas with greater certainty. Blocks begin to lift, or motivation returns to pursue work projects. You can experience some restlessness if you’ve been squirreled away recently and need a change of pace. Conditions may be unclear today as the shift occurs, but we’re at a turning point, making it a good idea to consider the day a transitional one. In the coming days and weeks, forward progress is likely with your goals, reputation, work, transportation, and educational plans or endeavors. New information or a different perspective helps you make better decisions. The Moon moves into your sign today, enlivening your feelings and connecting you with your emotional needs.
AquariusAfter over three weeks of retrograde movement, Mercury turns direct today, dear Aquarius, and you’re likely to see some forward motion in recent endeavors that have stalled. Watch for confusing instructions and putting your foot in the mouth today, but expect more straightforward communications going forward. Delays may lift on money owed or due, educational, travel, or publishing efforts in the coming days as new information emerges or unclogs. With the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house today for a stay of over two days, you have a vital need for private time or extra time to regroup emotionally. It’s an ideal time to explore your inner world and perhaps lay low a little, which can be beneficial.
PiscesMercury ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Pisces, and plans seem to come together in the upcoming days and weeks as information unclogs. Ultimately, your decisions and choices will be easier to make as more information gives you a stronger sense of what you want. However, watch today for speaking too soon before you’ve processed everything–there is a little more of this process to go as Mercury doesn’t immediately resume normal speed. Keeping in mind that communications can continue to confound you during the shift, you can nevertheless look forward to more clarity and movement related to a partnership, finances, intimate connections, and negotiations. Aim to go with the flow rather than rush or push things today.
