Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re more motivated than usual by your plans for the future, sharing ideas, and connecting, dear Aries. These things can lead to a stronger feeling of purpose and meaningfulness. The Moon’s transit of your spirit sector reinforces these feelings, keeping you focused on the positive and your eye on what’s to come. You can bring real creativity, fun, and charm to most of your pursuits. Pouring energy into the world rather than keeping things to yourself seems to be the most rewarding way to fill your needs today. There is some tendency to misjudge reactions in your social relationships today, however. You are inclined to comfort yourself with extravagances rather than address the real reason for restlessness.
TaurusYou can experience a strong desire to pour more energy and love into a special project today and tomorrow, dear Taurus. You’re more creative in your work or while handling duties and responsibilities, finding some pleasure and a good sense of usefulness as you fill them. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, connecting well with Mars and the Sun, and you’re likely to seek a sense of slow but steady emotional growth. A tense angle between Venus and the North Node can point to minor misjudgments or the tendency to focus on things that are counter to your better judgment or growth. You may not be receiving the appreciation for your efforts that you crave, but try not to let this frustration rule your day.
GeminiYou could find that you bond more deeply with a special person by sharing activities or ideas beyond the routine and ordinary, dear Gemini. You might feel on the same page with, or approval from, a significant person in your life, particularly regarding personal philosophies, ideals, or happiness goals. There can be some sensitivity (or insensitivity) to manage today as a Venus-Node square can ruffle feathers. Disagreements on the minor things can be frustrating, but this can also be a good time to learn about the people you care about. You could find yourself in the position of mediator. Focusing on your creative affairs, studies, interests, and broader goals can be heartening and motivating.
CancerToday’s energies tend to support pouring a little more dedicated energy into a project or relationship, dear Cancer. Strengths lie in the family unit or in relationships with people who are like family. Exchanges in close relationships are helpful and rewarding. Influences on your solar chart emphasize your emotions, inner world, intimate relationships, and support system, and they’re very positive. Even so, there may be some disconnects and hurt feelings before you get to this state. Be willing to explore your deeper feelings. You might also make room for work, as you’re emotionally geared to take care of business with the Moon’s transit of your work and health sector all day. You might want to organize an area of your life.
LeoThere can be some disconnects to manage today, dear Leo. Aim to learn more about yourself and your feelings through differences in values or ideals. Helping you today and tomorrow is a Sun-Ceres aspect that boosts your faith in a relationship or partner, and the key may be communicating in new ways. Or, a newfound interest or studies can be pleasantly absorbing. This is also a good time for renewed interest in an old subject or project and brushing up your knowledge. Someone can give you valuable feedback, and your exchanges are creative. Take extra time to center yourself instead of scattering your energy for the best results. The Moon transits your playful and creative solar fifth house, further emphasizing your attention to creative expression, love, and happiness.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Virgo, emphasizing your emotional world. As well, work projects and health or fitness programs are starting to nudge forward, and the motivation to get back on track is increasing. Today is powerful for feeling a little more effective, engaged, and in control, particularly in your work and with practical affairs. You might research a potential purchase or consider long-term projects and pursuits. Keep in mind that we’re still in tricky territory for big moves or launches, but you’re in fine shape for putting some effort into long-range goals and plans. Nevertheless, there can be some minor strain in relationships, as it’s rather easy to touch on sore spots. However, you are likely to learn a little more about yourself and others in the process.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Libra, boosting your desire to learn, share, and connect. It may be best to be a little more sensitive to one another today as your ruler, Venus, forms a square to the North Node. Disconnects are possible. There’s also some tendency to gravitate toward habits that are not supportive of your growth and current goals. However, as the day advances, there is good energy for pouring energy and dedication into a project or cause. Signs that a creative pursuit or romantic connection is moving forward are likely to arrive in the week ahead. You might experience a renewed interest in a hobby or pastime that leaves you feeling especially engaged and motivated. The need to create or to express yourself in your unique way can fill you with a stronger feeling of purpose today and tomorrow.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Scorpio, highlighting your attention to the practical side of your life and the world of the five senses. Expectations of others could be a little off today, or you could find someone disagreeable or insensitive. However, good energy is with you for emotional strength and conviction. Home and family matters may be turning a corner now. You might discover alternative ways of dealing with problem areas that turn out to be highly effective. You can experience an increased desire to work on home projects or to bond with family. Endeavors on the domestic front for which you may have lost some interest might pick up steam. A nesting urge is strong today, but you can also take an interest in reconnecting with people from your past.
SagittariusYou can enjoy guiding and supporting others or learning something valuable today, dear Sagittarius. While Mercury is still retrograde, there is strong energy with you today for inventive thinking and communicating. Ideas generated now are particularly fertile and creative, but it’s the process of exchange that is most interesting to you. You might rekindle interest in old projects, topics, and mental interests. Follow-through may be a question at the moment, simply because there is part of you that feels in limbo or at crossroads, but focusing on what you enjoy in the present can be productive. Nevertheless, there is the potential for some disagreement, but solutions to problems are not far behind when you acknowledge sensitive areas. You may feel torn between social pleasures and work or responsibilities, and the contrasting feelings can either lead to overdoing or indecision. The Moon transits your sign all day, and emotions heighten.
CapricornOthers seem to recognize your usefulness more so than usual today and tomorrow, dear Capricorn, which motivates you to guide, help, and support even further. The desire is strong to nurture and grow a business, project, or even an idea. Even so, it’s best to avoid having too many balls in the air, which can prevent you from pursuing a genuinely satisfying line of thought or project. Watch also for going back and forth between a light-hearted and serious approach to your interactions. You might ease off if things are not clicking now. Fortunately, your managerial skills or gentle leadership qualities can be in positive focus now. The Moon spends the day in your private solar twelfth house, and you can do quite well to carve out some extra time for rest, regeneration, and healing.
AquariusThere can be some disagreements or social misunderstandings today, dear Aquarius. You could find that you and others are more insensitive than usual, and there may be disconnects before you get to a better place in your relationships. However, another influence on the day tends to generate comfort and warmth, and you come into your own as the day advances. You have increased personal presence, and you project an especially wise or nurturing quality. Your guidance or support can be in demand today and tomorrow. You’re enthusiastic about enjoying new experiences or exploring new topics. You’re also taking some pride in your ability to handle your responsibilities and obligations.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your career and reputation sector, dear Pisces, and hooks into some exciting energy for building confidence. Other influences today put you in a particularly good position to support, guide, or mentor. At times these days, you can feel emotionally “stuck” in the past, but today, it feels good to be there. You might reconnect with topics, ideas, and studies that you enjoyed in the past. You’re likely to feel stronger and more confident from the inside out today. Even so, the perception of value can be a little off today, making it less than ideal for critical decision making. You may not easily see eye to eye with others. Take a step back, and allow both yourself and others some space until you feel more in sync. Activities that help ground you on an emotional level fare the best today.
