Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Aries, following on the heels of Mercury. In the month ahead, there’s special attention to those things hidden from sight, private matters, your more profound wants and desires, and sharing and power dynamics in close relationships. 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 especially involving projects and connections. This month-long cycle holds strong healing potential. You’re developing strategies and using your powers of observation to your advantage. Today is another good day for steadiness, practicality, clarity, and reason.
TaurusThe Sun enters your solar seventh house today, dear Taurus, launching a month-long cycle in which your larger focus turns to partnerships, negotiations, and self-expression through your relationships. Personal energy levels may not be at their best during this cycle. Still, you could discover that if you put more energy into listening to others and tending to your relationships, you will coast along just fine. You are taking more pride in your relationships, which can motivate you to make important changes to relating patterns. You are expressing your power potential through close relationships and could attract strong personalities into your life. Energies today, like yesterday, are suitable for grounding, realistic activities, and clarity.
GeminiMercury moved into your work and health sector yesterday, and today, the Sun does the same, dear Gemini. This new Sun transit, lasting until November 22nd, brings further attention to self-care, daily routines, work projects, and skills development. In the coming month, you’re inclined to want to take charge of your daily affairs, and you’re taking more pride in your daily tasks, work, or services. It’s an excellent cycle for organizing your daily affairs and improving your health and wellness. This should be a busy time of year for you, and a good time to get various important chores and errands done and areas of your life sorted. Focusing on details brings rewards now. Today’s energies remain excellent for stabilizing, steadying, and grounding activities. Your head is clear!
CancerThe Sun moves into the creative sector of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, and will continue this harmonious booster transit until November 22nd. In your own way, this is a time to express yourself creatively or playfully. Romance might be on your mind more than usual, and you could renew or refresh creative projects, recreation, or pastimes. You could be more outgoing than usual, more inclined to take a personal risk or to go out on a limb, and playfully competitive during this cycle. It’s a great time to share your good humor and attract like-minded people into your life. Today’s energies remain strong for clear-headed thinking and constructive activities. You could enjoy learning something new and useful.
LeoThe Sun enters your home and family sector today, dear Leo, and will continue to transit this house of your solar chart until November 22nd. Mercury just moved into this area of your chart yesterday, and with the Sun now there as well, your personal life is a big theme in your life. It’s a time for acknowledging your need for a base of operations, improving domestic routines and affairs, and spending more time with loved ones. You’re naturally de-emphasizing your more worldly or professional concerns as personal matters assume more and more importance in your life during this month-long cycle. It’s an excellent time to focus on making yourself feel secure and content and for activities that help you find more peace with yourself. You’re more nostalgic and gravitate to familiar activities, people, and situations. You might also bring more spirit, flavor, and fashion to the home during this cycle.
VirgoToday, the Sun enters a bustling, bright sector of your solar chart today, dear Virgo, where it will stay for approximately a month, stimulating your need to contact and connect with others. More communication in your daily life and more movement and activity in general are likely. It’s a fine time to reach out, take up new studies or interests, and share your ideas with others. This is a curious, communicative cycle. You might focus on improving your feeling of connectedness and find ways to strengthen your connections through small gestures and opening up the lines of communication. Learning and enjoying your special interests can be a strong draw in the weeks ahead. Because your curiosity brings diverse interests and information into your world 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.
LibraThe Sun leaves your sign midday and enters Scorpio, dear Libra, launching a month-long cycle in which you’re especially interested in bringing more stability and security into your life. It’s a good cycle for attending to your prized personal possessions, bank account, and especially your self-esteem! You’re more likely to build on current resources than begin new things and seek tangible results for your efforts. There is less emphasis now on personality development, which was the focus of the last month’s cycle, but continued interest in personal needs. You’ll be looking for ways to ground yourself and make yourself feel more secure and connected to the world of the five senses. It’s a great time to establish and then focus on priorities. Today’s energies remain strong for steadying and strengthening a special area of your life.
ScorpioThe Sun begins a month-long transit of your sign today, dear Scorpio. Mercury entered Scorpio yesterday, and today, the Sun follows suit, putting even more emphasis on you, your personality, and personal needs or plans. Others tend to follow your lead, or they step out of the way and allow you to do what you will during this cycle. The time is right for taking action, confidently pursuing your goals, and engaging in any confidence-building activity that helps to improve your appearance and manner. You are in a “take charge” cycle. If you’ve been wanting to make changes to the image you project, this is a great time for doing so. It’s also a time for more impact and personal presence. Today’s transits remain strong for efforts to build and stabilize your life in key life departments.
SagittariusToday, the Sun begins a month-long transit of the last sector of your solar chart, dear Sagittarius, where it will influence until November 22nd. It’s a time when you are more naturally inclined to pull back a little from excessively demanding or competitive situations to observe, digest, and process. It’s also a time for building faith in the unknown or unseen and in your inner power and strength. You are likely to need more rest and time to yourself. Tying up loose ends rather than throwing yourself into something entirely new makes the most sense during this cycle. It’s a more spiritual period of the year for you. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come, but also reflecting upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. Today’s energies are stabilizing and grounding.
CapricornThe Sun begins its transit of your solar eleventh house today, dear Capricorn, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until November 22nd. Mercury, just yesterday, began its stay here, and with the Sun here as well, it’s a strong time for friends, connecting, community, and happiness pursuits. You are less concerned with career or life plan goals now, and more and more interested in what makes you happy. You may be networking and socializing more than usual or actively participating and contributing. You are entertaining more progressive ideas these days, and people are looking upon you quite favorably. During this cycle, the most benefits come your way when you recognize your need for others. Today’s transits continue to strengthen and clarify your goals and plans.
AquariusThe Sun enters your career and responsibility sector today, dear Aquarius, kicking off a month-long cycle that stirs your ambition. You could be in higher demand until November 22nd. In the month ahead, you and others are more aware of what you have and haven’t done–your accomplishments and responsibilities are in the spotlight. It’s one of the better times of the year for putting effort into structuring and organizing your life, establishing priorities, and assessing where you want to go. You take more pride in your responsibilities and your reputation. You can come to a high point of the year in your career or reputation. People in positions of power are more likely to notice you and listen to you. Today’s energies remain focused, reasonable, and practical. You’re clear-headed and more patient than usual.
PiscesThe Sun begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Pisces, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until November 22nd. It’s an excellent cycle for lifting yourself above your usual routines, even in small ways, to consider the bigger picture. You are more adventurous, curious, and spontaneous. You might do more studying, learning, and venturing out and about. Your moral convictions can be in focus and stronger now, and you are more inclined to philosophize and share your opinions and ideas with others. In fact, your aspirations and ideals are stronger driving forces in your life now. You are seeking to feed your spirit at this time of year. Today, a special pursuit or interest can motivate you to tidy up your affairs. Following a routine can be comforting.
