Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun moves into your solar eighth house, dear Aries. There’s special attention to those things hidden from sight, private matters, your deeper wants and desires, and sharing and power dynamics in close relationships in the weeks ahead. Both emotional and material support or debts can be in focus, as well as your ability to share and blend with a partner or to understand yourself as you face the need to improve, change, and transform. You gravitate toward challenges or deeper, more involving projects and connections. This month-long cycle holds strong potential for healing, developing strategies, and using your powers of observation to your advantage. Today, you might aim to learn something new about yourself, as disruptions have a way of pulling up buried frustrations. Uncertainty about your income or security can interfere with your desire to have fun or even pursue your work or health goals. Take your time with decisions and get in better touch with your intuition. Nevertheless, you can be quite motivated to build your health, both mental and physical, or make your daily routine work for you.
TaurusThe day brings a new solar cycle that puts the spotlight on your one-to-one relationships, dear Taurus, or your need for perspective and balance. Until November 21st, you’ll be looking to find a better balance in your life, in general. It can be a time of epiphanies and fruitions. This month-long cycle stimulates the need for others and companionship. Others’ plans and input are of particular importance at this stage. There can be significant discoveries, negotiations, and relationship action during this period. Your focus is more social than practical. You take more pride in how well you find harmony and balance in your personal environment. You are looking at things from two sides and eager to make changes to restore order to your life. Today, it may not always be easy to stay focused on the tasks at hand. Distractions, particularly of the social kind, can be plenty. Avoid quick decision-making today. The Moon in your spirit sector all day can help you to find your own path to fulfillment without having to rely too much on others.
GeminiThe Moon continues to transit your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, making it a good time to observe things you might not see on another day. You’re tuning in to the layers of a situation. The Sun moves into your work and health sector where it will transit until November 21st. In the month ahead, you’ll be bringing more pride and energy to your work, habits, and health. This is a prime time for improving or beginning new routines that focus on getting yourself into better form on physical and mental levels. You’re motivated to lead a healthier, more organized, and more productive life. It’s a good idea to aim to cultivate positive habits and routines. It’s not the best time of year for recognition or worldly success, but it’s an excellent transit for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success. Feeling on top of the little things in your life can do enormous things for your confidence and general outlook. Today, there is a tendency to see a situation the wrong way, especially if it’s too close to your heart. Consider that schedule changes may lead to new and exciting connections. Later today, your priorities seem pleasantly clear. Putting your domestic life in order may be attractive, as you see it as the first step for making important changes. You’re on a mission to feel more organized, in control, and on top of your life.
CancerThe Sun begins its transit of your fifth sector of joy and creativity today, dear Cancer, where it will transit until November 21st. This is a time of increased focus on your creations, romantic life, hobbies, or children. Gentle encouragement to improve your life through creative self-expression, loving relationships, and extra time made for play and entertainment comes now. This is a time for gradually pulling yourself out of your shell and enjoying and sharing yourself more. You could pick up or renew a hobby now or focus on other ways to increase your level of enjoyment and the more playful side of your life. Today, perceptions are a little off, and emotions somewhat unpredictable. You might be feeling a little scattered, impulsive, or impatient. You’re more inclined to act from a place of emotion than you are from a place of reason. You want to feel that you’re useful and organized, and putting something into order can be most attractive later today.
LeoThe Sun moves into your home and family sector today, dear Leo, and will transit here until November 21st. Building up inner strength and nurturing the self and loved ones are in the spotlight in the coming weeks. It’s a good time to take more pride in your home and improve living conditions and family relations. You can be reconnecting with a deep need for inner peace and comfort, enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer activities, as well as collecting your thoughts and centering yourself. You’re more interested in what’s best for you in the long term than you are in quick fixes. Activities that help you feel rooted and centered are favored in the coming weeks. Today, the Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and doing something to help you feel better about your health or work can be much appreciated. You want to know that you’re on top of things, especially regarding money, home, family, and security matters, and you can be in an excellent position to make reinforcements now. Slowing down a tad may very well improve the quality of your work or projects.
VirgoThe Sun begins its transit of your communications sector today, dear Virgo, where it will stay until November 21st. This is a busy, engaged period of the year for you. It’s a time of increased awareness of what needs to improve regarding your personal environment, communications, and interactions with others. The spotlight is on movement, ideas, communications, learning, and perhaps multi-tasking. It’s a good time to pick up interesting information and an excellent period for introducing more variety into your life. Because demands on you, and your own interests, can be very diverse during this cycle, it can be challenging to work on a particular project with exclusive focus. However, this cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. Today, there can be an inner conflict between seeking new experiences and getting time to process recent ones. It’s not the best time to understand one another. However, getting organized comes naturally to you, and it feels great.
LibraWith Mercury and now the Sun in your resources sector, you’re also in a highly practical frame of mind, dear Libra. The Sun begins its transit today and will stay in your solar second house until November 21st. In the weeks ahead, you bring more energy and focus to your business, projects, money, or possessions. You take more pride in your ability to manage and maintain your life. Still, you’re ready to make improvements and find better ways to make use of your resources and natural talents. Focus more on what you have than what you want, and you’ll be in great shape in the coming weeks. You’ll find that this cycle is an especially grounding one! Today is not ideal for decisions about love or money, however. Change your methods and pull yourself out of the usual patterns if you’re left feeling unfulfilled instead of expecting different results from the same approach. You may be motivated to complete a project you’ve left unfinished.
ScorpioToday, the Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit to your sign, dear Scorpio. You are at a personal peak of sorts, and you’re likely to feel more in charge of your life during this cycle. While you’ll receive a lot of attention with the Sun in your sign until November 21st, you’re also reserving some decisions for later and taking your time. You might play with a new look, style, or image. This begins a new “birthday year,” and when your birthday does occur, remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. Today, watch for unrealistic expectations which can lead to some feelings of disappointment or discomfort. Don’t allow yourself to be at the beck and call of a person who doesn’t return the favor. As the day advances, conserving energy and building strength come naturally. You’re also more appreciative of a logical, orderly approach to your world.
SagittariusToday, the Sun begins a month-long transit of the sign just behind yours, dear Sagittarius. In the weeks ahead, you’re more naturally inclined to pull back a little from situations that are excessively demanding or competitive. It’s a period for dreaming, imagining, and processing recent events and developments. It’s also a time for building faith in the unknown or unseen, as well as in your own inner power and strength. You’re likely to need more rest and time to yourself. There are great rewards for slowing down the pace now. The Sun will stay in the most private, tucked away sector of your chart until November 21st, and it’s a natural time for reassessing projects, digesting recent events, and putting things behind you. The goal should be to lighten your load for when the Sun enters your sign on November 21st, and you’re ready to present your polished-off self to the world. Today, there can be some restlessness, and a need for a change of pace is at the heart of it. Still, the Moon spends the day in your resources sector, encouraging you to seek stability. Schedule problems and a lack of organization can test your patience. It’s a time to see the value of putting more order into your life or eliminating waste, but you shouldn’t ignore your need for a break from overthinking.
CapricornThe Sun enters your solar eleventh house today, dear Capricorn, where it will stay until November 21st. This yearly, month-long transit encourages your desire to make connections with others, to be part of a group or team, or to enjoy the company of friends or like-minded groups. This is also a time to entertain new ideas, dreams, and plans. While the last month’s cycle encouraged the formulation of career and practical goals, this cycle stimulates a desire to think in terms of “happiness” goals and plans. The most benefits come your way when you recognize your need for others, dreams, and a sense of community. Your expectations are strong but reasonable, and your mood improves. Today, you might not have an easy time conveying your message. It may be best to remain open to the prospect of letting go of a pattern or habit that’s holding you back. Emotional energy is intense today but also easily mastered and channeled into pleasurable activities. The practical side of your friendships, group associations, and projects benefits from your attention to detail. The benefits of slowing down to get something right becomes evident to you now.
AquariusThe Sun begins its month-long transit of your solar tenth house today, dear Aquarius, bringing more power, focus, and conscious, directed energy to your career, reputation, life goals, commitments, and responsibilities. It’s a take-charge period when you more naturally take the lead, and perhaps the spotlight. People notice you for what you do or contribute. Responsibilities may fall into your lap now, or you give existing commitments more attention and importance, and your ambition to perform rises. You are more goal-oriented and invested in your performance at this time of the year. You could find yourself in higher demand than usual in the weeks ahead. Today, watch for rebellious reactions and resolve instead to make your own choices. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, pointing to the need to retreat or rest more than usual. Still, you’re likely to want to be productive, and your ambition is pleasantly stimulated.
PiscesThe Sun moves into your ninth sector of soul and spirit today, dear Pisces, encouraging you to expand your mind and your reach in the month ahead. Your aspirations and ideals are stronger driving forces in your life now, and life takes on more color as you look at it in new ways. This cycle can bring amazing energy into your life, especially if you are open to acting upon your needs for varied activity and learning. Far-sightedness in the weeks ahead is good for building your faith and renewing your spirit, but you may need to remind yourself of those things right in front of you that need your attention as well. Today, there can be a change of plans, unreliability, or a shift of interests that is somewhat disruptive. However, a bit of friction can motivate you to make changes that truly benefit you. You’re patient with others, and there can be some restoring of faith through practical help or kind gestures and offers.
