Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Aries, and it’s a time of the lunar month to pay a little more attention to yourself for a couple of days. Even so, Mercury and Venus have just begun transiting your partnership sector, and partnering or teaming up can be in focus in the weeks ahead. Venus will stick around here until November 21st and Mercury until the 10th, generating powerful energy for enhancing one-on-one relationships. You tend to magnetize reasonable, helpful, and pleasant people into your life. Alternatively, this transit brings more pleasing, agreeable energy into existing partnerships, whether based on love or business. If you need to make peace with someone, it’s a great time to do so. Negotiations, compromises, contracts, and making connections are all favored, especially after the 3rd when Mercury turns direct in this sector. It can be challenging in spots today to make a satisfying choice as you could be feeling you’ll lose out no matter what you choose. Avoidance can lead to guilt or worry, and someone might doubt you. Tricky issues include matters of personal boundaries, sharing of responsibilities, and ownership. However, later today, you can feel good about putting others at ease.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, dear Taurus, and the need to rest and refresh is strong. Even so, there is a growing focus on your work and health sector, and things are getting busy! With Venus, your ruler, now in this area of your solar chart until November 21st, you seek more pleasure and harmony in your daily life, including your work or daily routines and health pursuits. These things are more enjoyable, or you make pleasant contacts through your activities. You feel more accomplished through cooperation and sharing, and you might discover that you meet your goals more successfully by harmonizing with others in the weeks ahead. Today, watch for repeating old patterns that haven’t had much success, particularly in relationships. It would serve you well to keep your mind open to improved ways of connecting and interacting. Use any conflicts stimulated now as fuel for motivation to improve yourself. You’re in fine shape for nurturing a business or project.
GeminiVenus has just begun its transit of your solar fifth house, dear Gemini, bringing graciousness, the power of attraction, an urge to interact, and increased charm in your life until November 21st. This chart sector rules self-expression, creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play, reinforcement, and even applause. You approach the world more creatively and romantically during this cycle, and it’s one of the best times of the year for enjoying hobbies, leisure activities, and romance. This period is probably better after November 3rd, when Mercury turns direct. The Moon moves into your solar eleventh house today, drawing you to relaxed and less pressured experiences. Keeping an open mind and your options open can invite favorable experiences. If you allow yourself to go with the flow instead of trying to push the pace, you’ll be in a great emotional place now. Something might be forgiven, or a relationship problem might be resolved. Look for patterns that are no longer serving your better interests.
CancerThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, and people tend to notice what you’re doing or look to you to take the lead. Your performance or accomplishments are more in focus for a few days at this time of the lunar month. Nevertheless, there is a growing focus on the opposite sector of your solar chart–your home and family sector. Both Mercury and Venus began their transits of this area yesterday. Venus will continue here until November 21st, encouraging your desire for more harmony and balance in your personal life, while Mercury here encourages more conversation. You might seek refuge from demanding situations or quiet time more often than usual. You can be particularly attached to familiar faces and places in the weeks ahead. It’s a good time for decorating, hosting, entertaining, and family activities. You’re getting cozier with family or yourself through a better understanding of your feelings and needs. You are especially perceptive today, particularly about emotions.
LeoWith the Moon’s move into your solar ninth house for two days and a half, dear Leo, you can have a strong desire to escape the routine on an emotional level. Venus has just begun its transit of your communications sector and will stick around in this area of your solar chart until November 21st. Mercury is here, as well, until November 21st, and there’s a great emphasis on learning, sharing ideas, and collecting information. Your curiosity can lead you to fun discoveries and opportunities in the weeks ahead. You’re in great shape for harmonizing with siblings, acquaintances, classmates, and neighbors, particularly after November 3rd, when Mercury turns direct. Purchases or gifts can help you connect and learn in happy, fulfilling ways in the coming weeks. You gravitate toward things that feed your mind. Your communications can help you bond with someone, or they might lead to meaningful opportunities.
VirgoMercury and Venus have just moved into your solar second house, dear Virgo, and there’s a stronger focus on your security, comfort, things, and money in the weeks ahead. Venus will stay here until November 21st, and it’s a rather status quo or stable position for relationships, affections, and money. You value people and things that make you feel comfortable, more so than usual. You might attract money, gifts, favors, and valuables during this cycle. This Venus transit encourages more patience for money and business matters, helping you make the most of your resources. With the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, you’re inclined to seek deeper connections to people or projects. You might enjoy giving special attention to your work, pet projects, or valuables. There is an indecisive quality to the day nevertheless. While it can leave you feeling a bit drained, you may only need a bit of space to sort it all out.
LibraThe Moon moves into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, and you are more approachable and involved. This is a time of the lunar month when you seek a bit of feedback or balance. Your confidence radiates through others. Yesterday, both Mercury and Venus entered your sign. Venus is in your sign until November 21st., and it’s an excellent transit for your appeal, mood, and plans. You tend to have your way now, in a general sense, and the power of attraction is with you. You are more comfortable in your own skin. People tend to acknowledge you and your value. You might enjoy more decisiveness when it comes to your feelings and relationships, but this is only likely after November 3rd when Mercury, also in your sign, ends its retrograde. Today, you’re more inclined to connect with people and share ideas or learn something useful. There can be some indecision, but it’s best not to rush into a decision, especially if it has to do with critical financial matters or a partnership.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your work and health sector today, dear Scorpio, and for a couple of days, taking care of assorted business can be most appealing. However, Mercury and Venus have just begun their transits of your solar twelfth house, which is opposite this sector, and the focus can be on mental and emotional health. Venus will stick around here until November 21st and Mercury until November 10h. You can feel as if you’re in a letting-go or preparatory stage on a mental, social, or romantic level in the weeks ahead. You may be dealing with private matters of the heart, or you take particular pleasure in their private life at this time. You’re not always ready to share your feelings with the world. This can be an excellent cycle for enjoying some level of solitude or exploring your deeper feelings, as well as volunteering or helping others. It may be a time for processing your feelings and affections. You can be a bit withdrawn, especially with Mercury also in this same sector. Benefits can come through behind-the-scenes activities. Decisions shouldn’t be made lightly today. If you can’t fix something, try not to worry too much about it and save it for when you have more time to get to its core.
SagittariusWith the Moon’s move into your sector of joy and creativity for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, you need some leeway and room for spontaneity. Both Mercury and Venus are now transiting your solar eleventh sector of friends, hopes, and dreams until November 10th and 21st, respectively. There can be a nice boost in business income, or sharing your talents or expertise with others can yield excellent results, particularly after November 3rd. Your tastes are for the new, different, and progressive. You better understand the benefits of relaxing and taking some time off from responsibilities. It’s time to give special attention to your humanitarian impulses and happiness goals. You seek more impartiality and acceptance in your relationships. The desire for peace with others is strong, but you’re also on board for making changes that improve your connections. Networking can bring rewards. You might also form some important long-term goals that emphasize community, happiness, and social life. Today, you could be feeling somewhat unsettled or undecided, and it’s best to be flexible. Small disruptions or doubts can ultimately lead you to bigger and better things.
CapricornThe Moon heads into a comfortable zone of your solar chart, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to enjoy a slower pace or seek some security and familiarity. It’s time to honor your need to take things easy just for the time being. Venus has just begun its transit of your solar tenth house, however, where it will transit until November 21st. With matters of reputation and career, you have considerable charm and diplomacy at your disposal. People in authority, such as teachers, parents, or bosses, are receptive. Opportunities, promotions, or advances may be part of the picture. You tend to say and do the right thing at the right time, although this is to become more evident after Mercury turns direct on November 3rd. This cycle is one of the better opportunity periods of the year for professional or public appeal. Or, you may simply enjoy the work you do and the impact you make more than usual. Today, focusing on things that genuinely make you feel grounded and secure give you the best results.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your communications sector today, dear Aquarius, encouraging your curiosity. This transit tends to keep you connected and busy, although your attention is often divided. Venus has just begun its transit of your solar ninth house, where it will transit until November 21st.

Venus has just begun its transit of your solar eighth house and will continue to spend time here until November 21st. On a practical level, you’re in good shape for shared money or other resources during this cycle, or help and support come to you. As you process your feelings, any improvements or changes you may need to make become clearer. Feelings of love and attachment intensify in the weeks ahead. It’s an important time for regeneration. Today, you tend to shine in your work or through your responsibilities. However, there can be some minor disappointments or worries to manage. It’s better to take in and observe than to jump into action just until you sort things out.
