Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There is pleasant intensity in your relationships and interactions these days, and there may be helpful resources coming your way, dear Aries. Still, your focus tends to diffuse at times today, and it’s best to be wary of giving off mixed signals. The temptation may be to push when someone backs away or to retreat when someone pushes you. It’s not the best time for healthy relating patterns, but consider that you might only need some personal space to get in better touch with what you want. Plans may not move ahead just yet, but it’s just fine because it’s too soon after a New Moon anyhow. Today’s energies are good for having a stronger sense of responsibility and more realistic expectations of both yourself and others regarding your work.
While last night’s New Moon has cleared the slate for new beginnings, dear Taurus, it’s still too soon to push forward. Today’s Mars-Neptune influence reinforces the need for some rest or a break from the action. Uncertainties with a friend or co-worker can be vague yet on your mind. While in a general sense you should watch that friendships don’t dissolve through unintentional neglect, if some associations are changing or ending, this may be due to evolving interests. And, some ups and downs are not something to worry about unless the downs are growing to disproportionate levels. Watch also for slip-ups on the job due to distraction or daydreaming today. Still, today is good for awareness in your close relationships. Focus can be on the more positive and useful or practical side of a partnership, or a relationship or person motivates you to pursue a particular goal. The Moon is in your relationship sector all day, and your desire to unite or pair up is stronger than usual.
While the day can feel busy, dear Gemini, it can also be less decisive or clear than usual. This is due to a Mars-Neptune influence that has us questioning our actions. It’s, in fact, a useful slowdown moment, and with a New Moon having just occurred, it’s a good idea to take things easy. It’s also a good time to reassess things or merely take a bit of time to understand what it is you truly want. Consider that it can be all too easy to believe what you want to believe (or fear) about a career or romantic matter today. It is also possible that you’re on the fence about an issue. Even if it’s uncomfortable, try to stay on that fence for the time being. You may very well need some time to process things before moving on. Today’s energies are decent, however, for work and health matters.
Clarity can fall by the wayside today, dear Cancer, and it’s best to accept this rather than fighting it. Sometimes we benefit from some reassessment or slowing down, and this can be the time for doing so. Family or a home matter may involve confusing elements that can undermine your confidence or your overall happiness temporarily. Do what you can to uncomplicate your life by clearing your mind and possibly your schedule. Last night’s New Moon helps you feel the sense that a new beginning is on its way, even in the absence of the details of how it will come about. You’re in good shape for applying some structure to your pleasures or creative pursuits today. Focusing on those things you can control or on tried-and-true activities can be comforting.
Today’s energies favor letting things flow, dear Leo. Uncertainty is likely, and this tends to heighten the more we push something that isn’t ready to move forward. Money or intimate matters can be confusing now, and it’s best not to bank on something (or lend and borrow) until you have a better sense of what’s happening. These energies are due to a Mars-Neptune aspect, but because a New Moon only occurred last night, it’s too soon to make big decisions anyhow. Matters are not meant to be clear-cut just yet. Today, sticking with familiar people and situations seems to come naturally. It’s a good time to get organized around the home or in your work. There is a practical cleverness to you that draws others to you.
You may want to let go of overthinking or, temporarily, of ambitious projects for now, dear Virgo. It’s too soon after a New Moon to have a clear idea of what’s next, and today’s Mars-Neptune challenge suggests slowing down is best. Acting on a whim may not have especially desirable results, either, as you may not be entirely in touch with your desires, and timing is slightly off. Besides, others may not be clear with you today. Whether deception is intentional or unintentional, or if it involves self-deception, there is a confusing element now that may require a slowdown. It may also be best to avoid significant purchases. Focusing on something you know can be a useful strategy. It can be a fine time for applying yourself to creative projects, or for bringing a creative touch to your regular work or routines.
While last night’s New Moon means we’re beginning a new cycle, dear Libra, it’s still too soon to advance your interests. You may want to slow down and allow for some uncertainty now. A Mars-Neptune aspect suggests that you don’t have all the answers yet. Energy levels may be below par quite suddenly, but this could also be a signal that you are not as sure as you think you are, and you need to keep things simple for the time being. Taking a short breather can help clarify things for you. It’s a good idea to seek out those things that ground you, make you feel secure, and keep you focused on the moment. You’re in a good place to appreciate what you already have and for connecting with nature. You might focus on organizing and tidying or otherwise simplifying your life.
The New Moon just occurred in your sign, dear Scorpio. While it begins a new and powerful cycle for you to make changes, it’s still too soon to jump into action. Today, take a sudden lack of energy or delay as a sign that your plans need refining. Life can feel more complicated, or you may feel a little drained and lacking purpose temporarily. Adjustments may need to be made to a creative project, or delays in a romantic relationship need to be managed or accepted. This is a time for reflecting a little further before moving your plans forward. The Moon continues to visit your sign today, and personal impact is strong. There is a strong desire to be the one to take the initiative so that independent work or projects are most attractive at the moment.
Today’s Mars-Neptune aspect points to the need to let some things go before you can clear the path for new beginnings, dear Sagittarius. You could feel a little frustrated with stop-and-go energy since it doesn’t suit your style. You prefer to have everything out in the open, but the day asks you to adopt a “wait and see” approach. You might find it challenging to depend on others’ actions or words, or some insecurity can seem to keep you at home or in limbo instead of out and about. Allow yourself the extra rest you need, if this is possible, as you may only require a breather. With the Moon continuing its transit of your privacy sector, the cosmos seem to want you to keep a low profile just for now. Listen to any instincts to take it easy, as this is a natural period in the lunar cycle for you to slow down and catch your breath.
Last night’s New Moon began a new cycle, dear Capricorn, but it’s still too soon to push ahead. With a Mars-Neptune aspect today, things seem less certain, suggesting that it’s better to rest and reflect than to move forward. Be more precise than usual in any business or even personal communication to avoid overcommitting. Take advantage of a Moon-Saturn aspect that helps you feel more confident that you’re on the right path, even if the details are not before you quite yet. You’ll find that sticking with what you know today can help you feel productive while you wait for answers. You are seeing your capabilities for what they are, rather than over or under-estimating them, and this is empowering.
Some uncertainty is likely today, dear Aquarius, and it’s best to avoid pushing forward against resistance. Some reflection is in order. Money matters can be unclear or complicated temporarily, particularly those connected to travel or educational pursuits. Avoid signing contracts or making solid travel plans just for the time being. Indecision about where you are going in a general sense is likely now, but with patience, waiting for answers is probably for the best. Today’s energy is robust for work as the Moon at the top of your solar chart connects with Saturn. Sticking to something that you know and making headway can help you build patience. It also means you’re not wasting your time as you wait.
Today’s Mars-Neptune challenge once again suggests that you should wait on matters, dear Pisces. It favors slowing down and getting in better touch with our desires before going forward. You may, in fact, all too easily draw and attract situations, people, or things that drain you or leave you feeling confused. It can be challenging to feel purpose or direction for now. Just when you possess the drive to go towards something, it eludes you, or you question whether you want it. Use this time for creative instead of practical activities as much as possible. However, with today’s Moon-Saturn transit, doing something productive can help you feel emotionally fulfilled, so you might want to choose a tried-and-true activity on which to focus your energies.
