Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re attracted to what’s beneath the surface or hidden from sight today, dear Aries, and you can delight in trying to solve a mystery. Still, there can be mental intensity this morning as you attempt to make sense of a problem. It’s all too easy to become obsessed with an idea track. You might aim to use this passion positively by channeling it into an important project. Otherwise, there can be tension as people take things more personally or seriously than usual. Complex relationship issues or disagreements could seem more challenging now with this frame of mind. While the extra attention you’ve been giving others in your life these days is positive and beneficial, if you overdo it, you will fail to recognize your own needs and desires fully. Excellent energy is with you for learning, communicating, and connecting as the day advances. You can feel pleasantly motivated by a relationship or particular person in your life who might be encouraging your mind, education, or ideas.
TaurusEarly today, you could do some battle with mental tension, dear Taurus, with a Mercury-Pluto square. Conflicts can come up suddenly and escalate quickly, mainly because problems are deeper than they appear on the surface. Little things can trigger buried, accumulated anger or sore spots. If you harness the energy well, you may be able to find solutions to ongoing problems. To do so, it makes sense to avoid obsessive thinking as much as possible, leaving you more in sync with your intuition. Try not to go too far with analyses, which can lead you astray. Emotionally-driven decisions made now may be regrettable later. A relationship can improve as you focus on long-term happiness goals later today. It’s also likely that a special someone is an excellent sounding board for your ideas.
GeminiEarly today, clarity is difficult because you’re too close to a situation or worrying unnecessarily, dear Gemini. The desire for control over a situation can arise if you feel vulnerable. Personal power comes from managing your own resources, responses, and modes of thinking constructively, not from attempts to control situations or others. However, it’s harder to see this due to a Mercury-Pluto square. You may communicate intensity with your words, perhaps without even realizing it, and others’ responses can be undesirable or surprising. It’s probably best to avoid harsh words or suspicion. While it can sometimes help to prepare for the worst, this may go too far right now. Even with old issues resurfacing, a new talk about these matters is not the best idea, as it’s likely to run in circles. Look for patterns that are no longer serving your better interests, and resolve to address them at a later date when people aren’t as moody as they can be now. It can be a relief to resolve work or mechanical issues later today. The desire is to improve, and the benefits of cooperation to achieve your goals are clear. You’re craving a genuine feeling that you’re moving forward and growing.
CancerEarly today’s transits are tricky for certain activities, dear Cancer. It’s not an ideal time to get advice or listen to your worries regarding a relationship. You may be at a loss when trying to understand the motivations behind someone’s actions, words, or disinterest. It may be better to enjoy a sense of autonomy for the time being, aiming to circle back to these issues on a day when people are more self-aware or detached. For now, there is hypersensitivity to manage. The tendency to think in extremes doesn’t serve you well unless it’s objective and prompts you to improve or strengthen weak areas of your life. Try not to make decisions based only on the morning’s perceptions. Trust is difficult when Pluto is active and challenging, and you may get a sense that someone’s withholding or hiding something from you. It could be due to fears, or there could be some truth to the feeling, but either way, it’s better to wait to come to conclusions until you’re less emotionally invested. Fortunately, you can learn much from sharing ideas or interests later today. Your outlook is optimistic, and your enthusiasm builds with creative or romantic matters.
LeoMental pressures can be intense early today, dear Leo, but it’s best not to rush things under this mindset. A Mercury-Pluto square can produce a bit of paranoia or play on fears. News or information coming in may be touching a nerve. Still, there is a tendency to worry more than is necessary, as exaggeration is a strong possibility now. Focus on what needs refining or rehauling, and you’ll do exceptionally well now–channel intensity into a productive project. This is a time for building and encouraging a sense of purpose by setting goals and drawing up plans to meet them. Emotional renewal is a strong draw, especially later today. Your interest in improving your family and home life is deepening and strengthening, and your positive focus on growth and forward movement can benefit your relationships. Your outlook changes as you find more joy in your personal life.
VirgoEarly today, there’s a tendency to dwell on problems or flaws with the influence of a Mercury-Pluto square, dear Virgo. It’s best to watch for extremes with money and relationships, in particular, and with thoughts or conversations more generally. People can seem to drain you, whether materially or emotionally, and boundary issues can now be a hot topic. If you feel undervalued, do your best to avoid defeatist attitudes. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot by attempting to manipulate people or circumstances, as it’s best to work on gaining power through self-control. Nevertheless, you stand to learn a lot about your feelings and fears, even if they emerge in disruptive ways. Try to apply the rule of moderation in your life, not only with activities but also with your thinking. As the day advances, it’s easier to tune into your need for quiet and peace.
LibraEarly today, you can experience some indecision or temporary doubts, dear Libra, as Mercury forms a square to Pluto. As much as you would like to get a decision made and behind you, try not to rush into one, especially if it involves critical financial matters or a partnership. With this transit, it’s easy for a problem to magnify in your mind, but it’s best to wait and see. If you can’t seem to shake a line of thought that’s interfering with your day, do what you can to relax and detach. Or, if you turn your attention to a vulnerable area of your life that is within your capabilities of managing, you’ll be doing yourself a favor. You may also need to tread lightly in conversations. It’s time to acknowledge the need to make changes instead of holding on too tightly to things no longer working in your favor. The Moon heads into your solar third house, inspiring you to reach out and connect or seek the information you need. This transit is a mental one–your curiosity awakens. As the day advances, your outlook on finances or work improves.
ScorpioEarly today, there can be some uncertainties or doubts setting in, dear Scorpio. Decisions shouldn’t be made lightly, but if you can’t fix something, try not to worry too much about it and save it for a time when you’re more patient and have the chance to get to its core. Mercury’s square to Pluto can stir up controversy, but it’s best not to jump to conclusions, as thoughts and perceptions can be a little extreme right now. Overthinking things is unlikely to lead you to a good place. Instead, you may end up losing some objectivity. Expressing suspicion won’t remedy a situation in which a trust problem already exists. Jumping to communicate may not be the wisest choice under these conditions, making it best to observe and adopt a wait-and-see attitude. As the day advances, it becomes far easier to take things less personally. The Moon moves out of your sign, and a Venus-Jupiter creative aspect inspires a need to see the best side of situations. An improved routine can be satisfying.
SagittariusThe Moon spends early today in “hiding” in your solar chart, dear Sagittarius, but then enters your sign, making later today livelier and more active. The Moon in Sagittarius excites your emotions and senses–you’re feeling more independent and spontaneous. Still, early today features a Mercury-Pluto square, and you’d do well with some time to rest and compose yourself. With this transit, there’s a general tendency to push to get to the bottom of a matter or uncover a truth before considering that you may not be ready for it! It’s better not to jump to a quick conclusion about a friend with this influence that leads to thinking in extremes. Something expressed or remembered can seem to trigger fears now, and it’s best managed by controlling reactions. With people clinging too tightly to their viewpoints, interactions can be challenged, too intense, or unhealthy. Working on relaxing your mind instead of getting all wound up over matters can be therapeutic, especially since dwelling on mistakes will not erase them. As the day advances, this comes more naturally. In truth, the day shapes up to be a highly creative and expressive one.
CapricornThe Moon continues its transit of your social sector early today but later enters your privacy sector, dear Capricorn. As such, you may feel some need to go within, retreat, and restore your energy as the day advances. You’re in a good position to enjoy your studies or special interests, and a friend might help you see the brighter side of a situation. However, there is slightly destabilizing energy early today, or the timing is slightly off, but nothing you can’t handle or sort out. Competitive elements are likely on a mental level as Mercury and Pluto form a square. Worries about reputation or career matters could be overblown. Instead of acting out or overcompensating, seek ways to improve areas where you feel vulnerable. It’s best to avoid thinking in extremes for the best results. Choose your words carefully! Feeling pressured can lead to sloppy thinking. On the other hand, focusing on things that genuinely make you feel grounded and secure can help you center yourself.
AquariusFocusing on important tasks with a restless mind can be difficult early today, dear Aquarius. Try not to rush decisions, particularly if you’re in a state of worry, which is possible with Mercury and Pluto forming a tense aspect. While strategic thinking can benefit you, overthinking will likely lead you astray. Taking problems one step at a time makes more sense. Aim to be as moderate in your thinking as possible–taking things too far is where we’re most likely to trip up with this aspect. Consider that fear can misguide you if you let it rule, and seek ways to simplify your life, particularly on a mental plane, by cutting out those things that leave you feeling overwhelmed. Watch for the fine line between healthy skepticism and suspicion. Ideally, obstacles ultimately bring you to a stronger state of knowledge or conviction. As the day advances, you can feel some building enthusiasm for a project, business, or financial matter, and hurdles seem smaller as your motivation increases. Pouring more energy and heart into your work and projects comes naturally and brings rewards now.
PiscesEarly today, there can be some minor disappointments or worries to manage, dear Pisces, due to a Mercury-Pluto square aspect. You could feel let down by sources you usually trust, or you may have difficulty making a decision or choice. It’s better to take in and observe than to jump into action just until you sort things out. Conversations are not particularly healthy if people hold on too tightly to their desire to be right. Aim to channel excess mental energy into something worth your time. Taking a break from overthinking can also be helpful. As the day advances, you find it pleasant to throw yourself into an endeavor that consumes your attention in positive ways. You’re feeling passionate and want to get involved. There can be enthusiasm about your interests, a piece of news, or promising prospects. Confidence and positivity are building.
