Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou tend to enjoy the feeling of being busy today, dear Aries, but it may not be easy to know exactly what you want to do with yourself at times. The Moon spends all day in your communications sector, placing some emphasis on making connections. Daily life can feel a little demanding today, and as much as you’d like to get a lot done, distractions can be plenty. Or, perhaps more precisely, you are more distractable than usual due to some lack of direction. It may not be easy to fill all of your goals if inspiration is lacking, but it’s temporary. It may be that you are setting your dreams and expectations a little too high. If they feel too lofty or out of reach, motivation to work towards them can wane. This is not about letting go of your bigger dreams but rather about setting realizable intermediary goals so that you don’t feel overwhelmed before you even begin. It’s likely to be an uphill battle trying to get the information you crave today, and it’s probably a good idea to adopt a wait-and-see attitude.
TaurusSocial worries can impact productivity at times today, dear Taurus, and streamlining makes the most sense. You could find that letting go of a desire to get all the answers helps you get to a much better place. With the Moon in your solar second house all day, you could be craving extra comfort and pleasure–you’re seeking ways to bring more feelings of security into your life. While you can be motivated to accomplish things independently, obligations to or from others temporarily pull you out of the comfortable groove. If you’re worried about money or clashing with someone on a matter of principles, there can be some tension. It’s best to avoid allowing someone’s needs to bring you down or so wholly capture your attention that you put yours on hold. Differences in values are especially apparent now, but you have the ability to rise above them. Today’s Mercury-Uranus transit seems to pit your work and duties against your sense of freedom and independence, which can lead to mistakes or impatience in speech and with instructions. Aim to level things out.
GeminiThe Moon in your sign all day ups the emotional volume, dear Gemini. While your initiative is strong, transits today can leave you a bit restless or listless. Freedom is a bigger deal than usual to you right now, and you might need to examine your feelings more closely on the matter. There can be some indecision to manage. As much as you enjoy pursuing pleasure or happiness goals, part of you needs a bit of space or rest. The best solution may be to simplify and divide your time rather than shoot so high that you give up before you start.
CancerThe Moon in your privacy sector all day suggests a real need to take a step back and recoup your emotional energy, dear Cancer. If you need more time to truly own a particular path or position, it’s best to take it. Transits today are not ideal for straightforward decisions. It’s a better time for laying low and activities that take the pressure off. Watch for the tendency to downplay your needs. If you find yourself avoiding situations that demand too much of your energy, it may very well be strategic and helpful. However, drawing the line on this is vital as it can turn into unhealthy escapism. Seeking ways to simplify can benefit you all around.
LeoWith the Moon in your solar eleventh house all day, dear Leo, your social activities and relationships are more strongly on your mind, even if there can be some ups and downs with these things. Rebelliousness and freedom issues are possible areas of conflict. It’s possible that you’re in demand and a little divided about where to put your energy or even your allegiances. With today’s transits, not everyone agrees on intellectual levels, and reaching a compromise can be a challenge. You could discover that backing away from a conflict is your best bet today since energies are not conducive to growing through your disagreements just for now.
VirgoToday’s Moon transit tends to put you “out there” or serves to remind you of your responsibilities, dear Virgo. You’re thinking about the long term. You can experience a tug-of-war of sorts between your desire to get things done and your need to relax and blend in with your surroundings today. Public and personal lives tend to compete for your attention. Dreams of where you want to head can figure strongly. While you may be juggling many things, if you aim to focus on the moment so that nobody can rightfully complain that you are distracted, you’ll probably be best off. Consider ways to make room for both practical application and experimentation. You may not readily agree with a significant other now, but if you commit to learning from the back and forth, you’ll end up ahead.
LibraThe Moon’s transits encourage you to pay more attention to feeding your spirit today, dear Libra. You could be feeling a little unsteady in spots, or you could have so many ideas and things going that you could feel a bit overwhelmed. You may want to do something out of the ordinary, but distractions, schedule changes, or lack of planning can interfere. It may alert you to the need for more organization. For now, take little steps towards your goals. Even with minor problems, you might discover alternate ways to enjoy yourself. If a plan doesn’t quite get off the ground, forgive yourself and make some adjustments before trying again, perhaps another day. Circumstances can be such that you recognize the need to simplify.
ScorpioThe Moon’s transits today continue to highlight your need to look within, dear Scorpio. You’re observing rather than pushing things forward. Tensions about money, valuables, and business matters can be part of the day, although it’s likely you can turn worries into creative changes. It may not be easy to get motivated and get going on something independently today, but it’s temporary. For now, distractions are plenty. With today’s Mercury-Uranus transit, part of you needs emotional space to draw conclusions and do your best thinking. However, another good part of you wants to bounce ideas off someone special. It can be challenging to reach a decision.
SagittariusWith the Moon in your partnership sector all day, you can be doing more negotiating or conciliating, dear Sagittarius. Still, you can be more sensitive to imbalances in relationships than usual. Your desire to go your own way might conflict with this desire for company or feedback. Aim to identify your feelings and sort them out if they interfere with clarity since it can be challenging today to distinguish which emotions belong to you and what belongs to someone else! Watch for projection now. As well, be sure that work and health matters get their due attention to put yourself in a better position to grab opportunities when they arise. If you’ve been a little organized recently, it could catch up with you today.
CapricornYou can feel a strong desire to get your daily affairs into order today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your work and health sector all day. The need to be productive and helpful strengthens. You tend to go out of your way to be of assistance, but you might need to delegate some tasks or take some time for yourself. It’s a bit too easy to over-commit today. Watch for taking on too much if it burdens you or interferes with your chance to enjoy leisurely moments. Certainly, you’re a little more sensitive than usual to imbalances of power or duties. Indecision can be an issue, but it may be best to wait for a clearer time to draw conclusions.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, love, and creativity, dear Aquarius, and you can feel a strong desire to express and enjoy yourself. Even so, today’s Moon aspects can leave you feeling a little restless or uncertain where to start. Whether or not to get closer to someone could be an issue, or there can be some wavering with decision-making or interests. Fantasizing what you want to see in your friendships can feel like a temporary fix to your mood, but it’s transient and probably not very satisfying in the long run. It’s best to try to tame expectations if they’re playing with your mood.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your solar sector of home and family, dear Pisces, and it’s a signal that you need some downtime. It’s not the time to make sweeping changes and instead to settle in and soothe yourself with familiar, grounding activities. There can be some unrest or distractions to deal with today, nevertheless. While it can be difficult knowing what you want from others, as you worry less about it, it becomes easier and more productive to connect. It can be challenging to get completely comfortable today if you have no idea what you’re heading toward, but you may not want to stretch your mind right now. However, the remedy to this is to consider making small, realizable goals until you get a clearer picture of the master plan. This way, you’ll be actively building your confidence instead of waiting for life to happen.
