Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Aries, and thinking and communicating improve with your intimate world, long-term strategies, work on the self, and investigations until November 10th. Your attention turns to the hidden elements of life. You are picking up a lot more from your environment than usual and seeing motives, subtleties, and power dynamics in your relationships and within yourself. During this cycle, there can be less impetus to share your ideas with others, with the possible exception of a trusted friend or partner with whom conversations can be frequent. You’re not as patient with conversation, information, or learning that feels frivolous or superficial. Today’s pleasing aspect between Mercury and Saturn helps you get into a practical frame of mind. You may enjoy bringing form to an idea or sorting out your thoughts with this transit. You have a strong sense of what’s workable and doable. It’s a generally favorable time for investigating or researching a matter.
TaurusMercury begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Taurus, where it will stay until November 10th. It’s a fine time to pair up to study or exchange ideas. There can be good conversations and bonding as you share ideas, and it can be a good time for counseling and gathering beneficial information from others. Good communication skills can reverberate positivity to other areas of life as well. You thrive on communicating with others in the weeks ahead. People seem to rev up your thinking processes, and even if you don’t always take their advice, you can benefit from their feedback. You’re more inclined to weigh the pros and cons, negotiate, and discuss matters. Today can be fruitful for collaboration, strengthening ties with a friend or group, or clarifying goals in a relationship. You’re interested in making things work and what’s realistic. Negotiations not only turn out well, but they also bring you to a better, clearer, more empowered place.
GeminiMercury moves into your work and health sector today, dear Gemini, where it will transit until November 10th. During this cycle, you’re likely to do some organizing of your life in little ways that get big results. Tidying up your daily routines and improving habits can do wonders for you in the period ahead. Still, you’re more likely to see flaws and problems. It’s best to avoid straining yourself fixing things, as a healthy work-life balance is important, but you should certainly take advantage of these powers of observation. You might focus on perfecting projects, handling chores, and updating skills. Analyzing work and health methods can be productive and worthwhile now. Work or chores can keep you especially busy or involve extra attention to detail and precise communication. Today, you find it easier to fill in the blanks. Sorting out your thoughts and plans comes more easily. Drawing up and talking about plans for work, long-term goals, your environment, and health can be particularly beneficial.
CancerMercury heads into your solar fifth house today, dear Cancer, encouraging you to share your ideas and create beautiful things until November 10th. There can be a stronger focus on creative endeavors, children, romance, entertainment, and pastimes. It’s a great cycle for creative intelligence and expressing your ideas more innovatively and dynamically. Spontaneous conversation or learning can be in focus and extraordinarily beneficial. People may be attracted to your mind and intelligence, or you’re connecting to others who are especially interesting. This cycle can create an easier flow of communication and a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity. You’re more inclined to think about or analyze your love life and express your affections verbally. Today, you’re in good shape for tuning out distractions and working on a priority. You can sort out critical areas of your life, or there can be clarity or confirmation of a matter. This, in turn, can inspire you to invest more of yourself in self-improvement efforts.
LeoCurious Mercury moves into your sector of home and family today, dear Leo, and until November 10th, you more often focus on tradition, the home, personal matters, or family. You think, speak, and write about the past, your memories, or history in general during this cycle. There tends to be more activity in and around the home or more frequent conversations with family. It’s more straightforward to express yourself with the people closest to you. In the same vein, you may not reach out or connect with others outside of your circle as easily for the time being. It’s a generally good time for beginning new long-term projects. Today’s energies are strong for finding ways to improve your family and home life. You might instead boost your relationship with yourself and your inner world. Conversations with or about loved ones can be constructive, and researching the information you need can be useful. Support or sound advice can leave you feeling more secure and emotionally together.
VirgoMercury enters your solar third house today, dear Virgo, where it will transit until November 10th. It performs well in this area of your chart. Mercury is your planetary ruler, and it always helps when this planet of communication harmonizes with your sign–you get a nice little boost. This transit begins a theme of learning, transportation, and making contact and connections. Your social life can improve, your mind is sharper than usual, and keeping/getting in touch with others can lead to valuable opportunities. However, you may not have enough time (or possibly interest) for in-depth study or focus during this cycle. This trend is better for connecting you with new information, ideas, and interests than it is for concentration. In fact, you’re in an exceptional position to feel out new ideas, improve your communications with others, and pick up handy tips and info. Today, you might see a situation more clearly, which is a relief. Making plans and dealing with details are in favor. You might set the record straight or give/receive useful advice. Someone might clarify a matter for you.
LibraMercury leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Libra, where it will influence until November 10th. In the period ahead, you think more often about your practical affairs or in practical terms. It’s a great time for ideas for improvement to business pursuits and organizing your finances. Tomorrow, the Sun will enter this area of your solar chart, and you’ll see more emphasis on sticking with the status quo, cultivating patience, and building your resources. With Mercury here, it’s a time for patient planning. It’s also one of the best Mercury cycles for building and growing your natural talents. You’re focusing on matters that truly need attention, as you’re less likely to become distracted. You’re attracted to useful information and hands-on learning. A grounded, reasonable approach to your life may be best today as Mercury harmonizes with Saturn. News might clarify a previously uncertain situation, and you’re willing to put in the effort for something with longer-term benefits. You have foresight now!
ScorpioMercury moves into your sign today, dear Scorpio, and the pace of your life picks up further. Lasting until November 10th, this cycle can find you more talkative but also more inclined to make your own decisions without seeking much feedback. With Mercury in your corner, you can enjoy improved decision-making and clearer communications. You keep yourself busy and crave more variety and movement in your life now. The Sun will move into your sign tomorrow, and you’ll be attracting more attention, and your words have more impact than usual. You’re quick to communicate but sometimes a little too impulsive in the period ahead. You’re open to new ideas and experiences and could benefit from doing some self-teaching. Today is good for sorting out your thoughts and verbalizing plans, even if only in a list for your eyes only. You may find that you’re a better judge of an idea if you see it spelled out in front of you. You see the practical details and might gain clarity on a matter. You crave a little more organization, structure, direction, and purpose.
SagittariusMercury heads into your privacy sector today, dear Sagittarius, closing up a communications cycle. Until November 10th, you’re in great shape to assess or re-assess recent projects and interests. You could find yourself tying up loose ends on a project or study. It may be a time for looking back, behind you, or within for answers. You’re less likely to seek others’ counsel in the weeks ahead, but they may frequently request yours! It’s a strong time for contemplation, meditation, research, and behind-the-scenes work or study. You could be a little less accessible than usual, and this tendency may very well increase with the Sun moving into this same area of your solar chart tomorrow. You’re simply more inclined to retreat a little more often to get perspective. Fortunately, your powers of observation get a boost as you see the world through a different lens. It’s also a time of more impressionability and sensitivity. Today, information might arrive that clarifies a matter, and you feel more organized or “in the know.” It’s a time to refresh and reclaim personal energy. Conversations with loved ones or family can be constructive, and through them, a bit of research or your own eyes today, you may even gain some clarity about the past.
CapricornMercury moves into your social sector today, dear Capricorn, and until November 10th, you enjoy and benefit from sharing ideas with friends and associates. You seek smart and interesting company now! Sharing ideas can help jumpstart or clarify your own thinking during this cycle. It can be a popular time for you, and a busier social calendar is likely. You could be involved in organizing a group endeavor or teamwork now. The cycle is good for coming up with inventive new ideas and successful networking. There can be much to learn through group activities and conversations with friends now and in the upcoming weeks. Today’s Mercury-Saturn influence wants you to pay attention to what’s realistic. You may be inspired to improve your life through a friend or news you hear today. Your expert opinion may be sought, or you are simply expressing yourself with more credibility and people are taking your word for it. People trust your opinion right now. You might decide to put your ideas in writing, make lists, map something out, and make plans or resolutions — all very successfully today!
AquariusMercury begins its transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Aquarius, where it will influence until November 10th. It’s a period for paying special attention to details, showing off your skills, getting attention for your abilities, or packing a stronger punch in your communications. You may be a little more guarded about expressing yourself, however, as you sense that others are noticing what you’re communicating (and you’re right about this!). This influence encourages more interest and thought in career and business matters, and your work may very well demand more of your communication skills now. Certainly, your mind turns more often to long-term goals and current responsibilities. Today, there’s fabulous grounding energy with you. You’ve had big ideas recently, and now, you want to know what’s viable. You may be refining, adding details to, or organizing your ideas related to a business project. Activities you take on today are directed or purposeful, and your judgment is good. Humbling yourself to consider advice from someone experienced in a matter can be beneficial.
PiscesMercury enters your solar ninth house today, dear Pisces, where it will transit until November 10th, emphasizing your desire for adventures beyond the ordinary and mundane and your hunger for learning. This transit certainly stimulates your curiosity and also mental restlessness if you’re not feeding your interests. You’re more inclined to learn and share ideas. Your thinking is more about the bigger picture than the details, which could sometimes be problematic in your practical world but very helpful for your general outlook and spirit. It’s a generally happier and more hopeful time. You have the power to inspire and help others with your words and encouragement. You’re looking for the purpose behind what you’re learning. Today and tomorrow are decisive for making plans and focusing on practical details. Conversations are useful and concentrate on what’s realistic and doable. You have more clout or credibility than usual and could make serious strides in your studies.
