Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesNew insight into an old relationship or your own psyche can be helpful and enlightening today, dear Aries. It’s a great time to delve into your feelings, personal psychology, and intimate thoughts as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your solar eighth house. If you’re a little self-absorbed now, it may very well be a valuable exercise. Word on a loan or debt might arrive, changing your perspective. Or, new insight into an old relationship can be helpful and enlightening. You’re likely to gain a big clue on a matter, but it’s not yet time for a conclusion. Thoughts, ideas, news, or conversations about confidential or tricky matters are creative, leading to important directions or developments in your life. New layers of a situation can make a world of difference to your viewpoint. Later today, the Moon enters your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, signaling a need to wind down and decompress.
TaurusYou’re likely to see new layers of a situation today, dear Taurus, and illumination about a relationship matter can be most significant. You might look at a matter or person from the past in a new way with the Sun’s alignment with retrograde Mercury, marking the midpoint of the retrograde cycle. You won’t have all the facts or answers right now, but this is a time for some solid rethinking of matters. Seeing both sides of a situation helps round out your thinking, ultimately leading to better decisions. Counseling and advice can be in focus and helpful. There can be a meaningful conversation with a partner, or someone’s feedback can make all the difference in your life today. The Moon moves into your social sector later today, and you seek the chance to unwind and enjoy yourself. Happiness goals are in stronger focus.
GeminiYou might gain meaningful insight into a work or health issue today, dear Gemini, with the Sun and retrograde meeting in your solar sixth house. You can feel the need to help or support others with information you’ve gathered for them or with your advice. You tend to approach problems from a different angle, and this can be very helpful. Ideas forming now can have much significance later. You’re learning much about what you’re getting from your work and daily routines or health routines these days, and news can arrive that points you in the right direction. It’s a turning point of sorts, moving you from a state of indecision to increased clarity, although your path is not yet fully illuminated. It’s best to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas rather than start all-new ones.
CancerToday’s conversations or ideas you form now can serve as significant turning points today, dear Cancer. Your attitude about future growth and improvement is evolving as the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury. Reviewing past ideas can lead to valuable new methods, serving to redirect you in positive ways. Someone from your past could reappear, or an old issue looks differently. You might lay something to rest or refine a goal or approach. Further information or an epiphany about a creative or romantic matter can figure strongly. New methods or solutions can come to light through a review of the past, and these can be very important in the months to come. The Moon moves into your solar ninth house later today, serving to lift you out of yourself and stirring your curiosity.
LeoYou’re likely to try to make sense of matters from the past today, dear Leo, particularly regarding family, your personal life, or your domestic world. Gentle exploration makes sense now, as ideas that emerge from your conversations and thoughts can be particularly significant. Today’s alignment between the Sun and retrograde Mercury encourages a new understanding of a past, home, or family matter. Ideas that emerge from any thinking and conversing you’re doing now can be most helpful. You’re in the right place to see things in a new light, and it’s one that nudges you forward in positive ways. Still, with both Mercury and Mars retrograde for a while longer, it’s best to observe, take notes, and muse, but wait and see before locking something down.
VirgoYou might revive an old interest or view a current one in a new light now, dear Virgo. Ideas generated now, especially with learning, mental interests, communication, neighbors, connections, and siblings, can be especially significant. They could kickstart a long-term pursuit or lead you in an important new direction. While this can be a turning point, it may be best to postpone big launches until more information comes to complete the picture. There can be helpful conversations today about the past or previously tricky topics. Your advice to someone can be sought and appreciated, or you might discover a lost or overlooked detail that changes things. We’re now in the middle of the retrograde Mercury cycle, and there can be more to an evolving story. For now, it’s a great time to observe, get a feel for a matter, and take notes.
LibraIt feels natural to look to the past for ideas and answers, dear Libra. What comes out of conversations and thoughts today can be significant later, particularly along financial or business lines. The Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury in your solar second house. Mercury will return to your sign in just two days, but for now, thinking tends to revolve around your personal belongings, money situation, or comfort matters. It’s not yet time to finalize decisions since there’s more to an unfolding story. For now, aim to observe and analyze things. You might decide to give someone, an old project, or a situation another look or the benefit of the doubt. If you do end up reviving something while Mercury is retrograde, which is the case now, it requires a new approach.
ScorpioToday’s transits seem to encourage you to review your recent decisions or plans, dear Scorpio. The observations you make as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your sign today can lead to new ideas, improvements, or other developments that you might put into action later. Keep in mind that what you communicate today has more impact than usual. With Mercury at the midpoint of its retrograde cycle, you might want to be selective with your communications. It’s a time for addressing any guilt or fears about past issues that are undercutting your confidence. In fact, your vision of a past situation seems to be through a wider-angled lens today. An element or person from your past may reappear. Or, this is a time when you rethink a matter that has been weighing you down. It’s also worthwhile to consider making changes that lead you to a stronger feeling of well-being.
SagittariusThere can be meaningful new insights into your innermost feelings, the past, or a long-term problem now, dear Sagittarius, as the Sun and retrograde Mercury align in your solar twelfth house. You’re receiving interesting clues from your impressions and dreams. You might aim to let go of bad attitudes or situations, and just how to do so seems a little clearer with today’s transits. There could be a secret revealed or an epiphany that leads you to view old problems or a past matter in a very revealing new light. The information you come across today can be significant when it comes to putting something behind you. A new or renewed project can be more appealing and motivating. Private time can be particularly helpful if you can manage it, although you are likely to feel comfortably connected with others, especially family later today.
CapricornThe Sun and retrograde Mercury meet in your sector of social connections, dreams, and hopes today, dear Capricorn. Important thinking, news, or conversations can give you new insight into recent events, decisions, or problems, and these are illuminating today. They’re likely to relate to friends, projects, and relationships. You can be especially sensitive to what’s going on around you and to what’s communicated right now. Still, you’re gathering valuable information, and it’s a great time for processing, reviewing, and rediscovering old interests or plans. While this insight is still in its new and raw stages, it puts you on the road to brand new beginnings. Memories or surprise meetings can change your perspective.
AquariusYou can feel prompted to review recent ideas, projects, or decisions, dear Aquarius, particularly about business or the longer-term, bigger items. Ambitions, career, responsibilities, or reputation issues can be in focus with the Sun’s alignment to retrograde Mercury in your solar tenth house. You’re starting to approach life direction and long-term goals in new ways that can be fruitful, leading to significant new ideas. You can get a sense for your next step or insight into particular directions you’ve been taking. Your communications have more impact than usual, and with Mercury still retrograde, it’s probably best to be selective with your words, keeping in mind that misunderstandings are possible. Your observations today can be invaluable later, but it’s still not the best time for major decision-making.
PiscesYou have the chance to see things in new ways with the Sun and retrograde Mercury aligning in your solar ninth house, dear Pisces. Thoughts might turn to the past or recent decisions and plans, and your new take on a situation is helpful. The conversations you engage in now can be inspiring and possibly quite enlightening. Issues related to education, transportation, beliefs, or publishing can be in stronger focus. What you read and hear about today can be invaluable for future projects or inspire new thinking and ideas that have the power to stick with you for some time to come. This can be a time of drawing upon your experience and creating something new from it, or for seeing new layers of a situation that you previously overlooked. Some compelling interests and beliefs can emerge now. The Moon moves into your sign later today, and it can feel like an emotional awakening of sorts.
