Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be some confusion or necessary distance from a problem in the first half of the day, dear Aries. Some anonymity becomes you with the Moon in your solar twelfth house all day. Working under the radar in some way means you can focus on your inner world, healing, and resting. Aim to take some time out to reflect or to recharge emotionally. While there is a strong tendency to want to escape or retreat from the usual noise and activity of life, the routine can be dissatisfying as well. As the day advances, you’re more likely to enjoy focus and structure, but you continue to benefit from an easy, gentle pace.
TaurusToday’s energies can be on the meandering side, dear Taurus, which you can use to your advantage by decompressing. It’s not a time to lock something down, but it’s a fine time to play things by ear. You might benefit from a short time-out. After the ambiguity of the morning, you’ll find it easier to focus. With the Moon in your solar eleventh house harmonizing with Uranus in your sign, you feel freer to be yourself. It’s easier to detach from pressures, and you might naturally guide others towards healing through your actions and ideas. You find it natural to reach out, make connections, or enjoy the company of people already in your life.
GeminiAim to listen to any hunches or signals, from within or without, to get extra rest today, dear Gemini. Fuzzy thinking is possible in the first half of the day. It can be challenging to see professional and public matters clearly. While there can be some confusion about your general direction, the day’s energies are good for pulling back from situations to get perspective, relief, or rest. Aim to use your imagination constructively or creatively. Sometimes you need a little boost that reminds you to take better care of your life, and you might get that nudge as the day advances. You might ease back into action now.
CancerToday’s transits tend to stretch your imagination, dear Cancer. Conditions are not ideal for activities that require concentration and precision in the first half of the day. You can be in a dreamy state of mind, finding it difficult to come back to earth. Consider spiritual, metaphysical, or creative activities now, if these are possible. You may need to diverge a little from the usual routine to keep engaged. Good energy is with you for sharing your thoughts and knowledge with others. The Moon transits your solar ninth house of spirit and adventure sector all day, and you are seeking some spontaneity or room to explore and discover.
LeoToday’s energies encourage you to diffuse and let go rather than wind up, dear Leo. You may need some moments to digest and gain perspective. It can be challenging to know where to direct your energy in the first part of the day. There can be some sluggishness or lethargy, as there can be a vague feeling that you don’t know where to head. Still, it’s better not to push yourself, and you may very well benefit from decompressing. You may be feeling a little out of step until you recognize the need to slow down and allow yourself time to process recent events, imagine, and dream. As the day advances, you more readily enjoy the freeform energy. Focusing on your inner world is useful. If there’s something you need to change within that can improve your life, this can be a day when you’re especially open to moving forward.
VirgoIt can be challenging to follow a routine and to deal with routine matters in the first part of today, dear Virgo. You tend to swing from seeing what you wish to see, to imagining what you fear things to be, particularly regarding a relationship. Use the morning for rest and reflection rather than for taking concrete action, if possible. As the day advances, you tend to let things flow. You might enjoy showing your appreciation for the people in your life who tend to help relieve some of the recent mental tension and pressures you’ve been experiencing. You might be able to solve a problem or lay a matter to rest.
LibraThere’s the need to decompress today, dear Libra, which can take you by surprise. A temporary dip in motivation levels can occur in the first part of the day, and it can be just fine if you treat it as a simple interlude. Fighting it may cause more problems than you need. Do watch as it can make you a little more vulnerable than usual to worry or stress. The Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, and your need to pay attention to details is strong. The best plan would be to attend to your duties and activities in an easygoing manner if you can manage it. A strict or dull schedule can feel heavier than usual otherwise. Aim to stay in a healthy place and focus on those things you can change.
ScorpioYour higher ideals are in strong focus today, dear Scorpio. You can feel a little demotivated or weakened in the first half of the day as the Sun forms a minor challenging aspect to Neptune. Inattention to relevant details and a wandering mind can figure strongly now. Take a break when you can, and aim to tune out unhealthy, undermining distractions. As the day advances, you find it easier to go with the flow. Others appreciate your unique vision and perspective. Recent pressures feel easier to manage.
SagittariusThere is some tendency to procrastinate in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, and you might feel a little nervous until you get on top of things. Still, it may be in your best interest to take a step back to get perspective. Not all is as it seems, so you may need to reserve judgment. With the Moon’s transit of your solar fourth house all day, familiarity or quiet is most appealing for now. It can help you deal with pressures–a release is most appropriate. Looking within instead of worrying unduly about what others are doing is healthy and useful. Keep things simple, familiar, secure, and comfortable for best results today. This Moon transit helps you take things easy rather than fight the tide.
CapricornReleasing rather than pushing forward can be most appropriate today, dear Capricorn, although there’s some tendency to resist this in the first half of the day. A Sun-Neptune minor challenging aspect this morning suggests some listlessness and confusion. It’s best to watch that you’re not misquoted. Interpersonal tensions tend to be superficial and temporary, and restlessness is easily managed by changing your routine just enough for you to be a little more engaged. As the day advances, you could be feeling quite above it all and ready to move forward at an easy pace.
AquariusToday requires some elbow room, dear Aquarius. There can be some lack of clarity with business or money matters in the first half of the day, and it’s best to avoid big decisions along these lines. It’s not an ideal time for meeting strict deadlines and schedules. Still, as the day advances, you’re more likely to get things done at your own pace, and this approach works best at the moment. You may need to work on your ability to concentrate on what matters in the present, helping iron out difficulties. Aim to consider your current projects, talents, and resources, and aim to nurture and develop these things rather than seek out something entirely new.
PiscesThere is a tendency to go a little off course this morning, dear Pisces, but if you’re fine with not making clear progress for a moment, then you’ll do just fine. Your emotions are running very close to the surface with the Moon in your sign all day. You express yourself with natural ease. It’s a good time to start fresh attitude-wise with a new lunar month ahead. Your ability to let go and move on is vital to emotional satisfaction now. A freer, lighter mood is most welcome in your life today.
