Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today can bring some complicated feelings or interactions, dear Aries. Even so, what emerges now can be a clue to your fears or deep-down ambitions. If relationship dynamics seem out of balance, resolve to make adjustments so that you and a significant someone feel empowered by your connection. Try to replace fear with love to heal yourself and strengthen your relationships. Consider also that worries about your work, reputation, or position may be unfounded or exaggerated. If they’re not, it’s time to work on possible solutions but take things one step at a time. The desire to set a few things right in your life or to make adjustments is strong today. The Moon moves into your solar sixth house later today for over two days, and you’re ready to organize, sort, and fix. Fulfilling your daily duties and nurturing a routine leaves you feeling accomplished.
TaurusThere’s some tendency to dwell on negative emotions or difficult topics early day, dear Taurus. Obsessive behavior is something to watch for. There can be a lot going on under the surface of things, and you can be tempted to express yourself indirectly. It can be frustrating at best and destructive at worst, but also quite transient and manageable. An old hurt or resentment can be stirred or triggered. Rather than letting it rule your behavior, examine what’s emerging now and aim to put it behind you. You can learn a lot from the messy feelings that arise. The day advances with more freedom. The Moon heads into your sector of joy, and you’re wearing your heart on your sleeve. You gain satisfaction and nourishment from the things you create, your hobbies, or your love life.
GeminiEnergies early today can be loaded or tense, dear Gemini, tending to trigger suspicion or vulnerabilities. You might experience an intense attraction or impulses that come from a deep place. Or, there are reminders of a difficult time and complicated feelings. Relationships may not be straightforward, and you could sense a hidden agenda or emotional traps in some of your interactions. Be careful not to hold onto something only because you fear letting go. Ideally, problem areas now come into the light so you can manage them rather than allow them to control you. The Moon moves into your home and family sector today, and it’s a great time for tending to the hearth and making things right, secure, and comfortable.
CancerSome continued tensions are possible early today, dear Cancer, especially if someone’s resisting or standing in your way. Feeling held back, controlled, or directed can be frustrating now. Those close to you can be very touchy and sensitive, and it can be easy for others to push your buttons. Focus on breaking away from old patterns of relating that haven’t been very successful in the past for best results. Fortunately, this mission gets easier as the day advances. The Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days. Learning new things and pursuing personal interests not only please you, but they can be healing at this time. You’re readily sharing your knowledge and advice to express your care.
LeoTransits early today continue to produce tension that might interfere with your relationships and communications, dear Leo. It’s all too easy for someone or something to trigger vulnerable areas of your psyche. Worries about work or health can interfere with enjoying simple connections, personal interests, and light conversations. Even the simplest of interactions can seem loaded! If you observe this happening, try to detach yourself from the situation and move back into it after you’ve gained some perspective. The Moon spends the first part of the day in your sign, magnifying your emotions, and then moves into your resources sector for a stay of over two days. You might enjoy paying more attention to your valuables and prized possessions, and you’re inclined to save and stock up on what you need.
VirgoKeep your eye out for unhealthy attachments, dear Virgo, as transits have a way of pulling up buried issues. Early today, there can be some frustration over personal finances, values, and ideas that seem to conflict with those of someone in your life or stimulate fears. There can be a possessive streak to manage; if so, it’s more likely a symptom of something that runs deeper than the matter at hand. Fear of not having control over your life can lead you to hold on to things, people, and situations. Consciously allowing yourself to let go, even a little, can be helpful now. The Moon begins the day in your hidden sector, but in the second half of the day, it moves into your sign, lighting up your emotions. It’s a good time for special attention to your image, manner, or appearance. Seek ways to nurture your self-confidence.
LibraEnergy is tricky early today, especially for relationships, dear Libra. Insecurities and fears or conflicts in your domestic life can be in focus. If you feel that people are trying to manipulate you–or that you need to resort to manipulation to get your way–examine things a little more closely. Work on your part of the problem and understand that you can’t control others. Or, make it clear that you need to be dealt with directly if others are trying to get your attention. It’s important to avoid allowing worry or fear of losing power to spoil your mood. Family or home life may very well need extra attention. However, also consider that you may be better off detaching just a little so that you can relax. You may be holding onto something too tightly now. The day advances with a freer feeling. You might seek comfort and nourishment through retreating in some way, such as taking time to yourself to reflect, process, and digest recent events.
ScorpioA tendency to dwell on the past continues until early today, dear Scorpio, and it can interfere with healthy interactions in the present. Controlling a conversation or persuading someone to believe something can be tempting but won’t lead to improvement. It’s probably better to address a problematic area head-on rather than let it fester, but choosing a time that’s not as loaded makes sense. Some feelings of discontent can lead to manipulative or disruptive behavior if you’re not careful. You might decide that it’s kinder to yourself to move on, and it gets far easier to enjoy yourself as the day advances. It’s a good time to establish or strengthen a connection with a friend or group. You may be in the position to put more energy into a group or team effort or into helping others.
SagittariusEnergies early today are somewhat complicated, dear Sagittarius. An issue surrounding values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries can produce some tension or worry. Indirect or roundabout activity rubs you the wrong way. If you feel out of the loop, manipulating or controlling to get back in the game can seem appealing but won’t work in your favor. You’re much better off if you take the high road! You’ll learn something valuable about yourself through your reactions. You can feel more directed and hopeful as the day progresses. You’re in great shape to pay special attention to your work or business. Transits stir your ambition in happy, pleasant ways. Feeling in charge and in control is fulfilling and satisfying now.
CapricornIf you can manage spending time free of interference so that you can do your own thing, you’ll benefit today, dear Capricorn. However, early today brings possible tension and competition. It’s most likely felt with those in authority or the business world, although personal interactions can also be stressful- perhaps even loaded. For best results, keep all your dealings above board and avoid the traps of game-playing. While you can’t control how others approach situations, you can control how you respond, and sometimes the best response is no response at all! Behaviors have more potential to impact your reputation today, and it’s best to keep things status quo. As the day advances, you feel far freer. You might benefit from getting away from the usual routine for emotional satisfaction and nourishment.
AquariusEnergies early today are complicated, dear Aquarius, and they may very well stimulate any tendencies toward emotional extremes. The desire for new experiences and to move forward in your life can be undercut by a feeling that you can’t quite let go of the past. Take things slowly. There could be some overreaction to little problems and minor events now, but these are likely symptoms of deeper issues. Be willing to face these matters with self-honesty for best results. Problem areas can surface now, but they’re manageable and revealing. As the day advances, you’re in great shape for rearranging or reorganizing your projects, plans, or personal environment. You’re also paying closer attention to your inner longings, desires, and needs.
PiscesEarly today, it can be a challenge to keep a healthy distance from problem areas, dear Pisces. You’re not on the same wavelength as someone, or you receive mixed signals. Watch for the tendency to read too much into what’s happening around you. People probably do have hidden agendas, but it’s best not to focus too intensely on the negative. Inner resentments or rumblings are possible, and internal confusion about a relationship’s dynamics or depth can be the root of troubles. If relatively simple problems work you up far more than expected, seek reasons rather than allow fears and frustrations to rule your mood. This becomes far easier as the day advances. There’s more nurturing, caring energy in your relationships. You are more invested in your ability to get along with others.
