Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Lunar Eclipse pulls up strong feelings surrounding self-worth or money matters, dear Aries. A brewing financial issue, for example, could reach a head. There can be a conflict over ownership or values. If you’ve been nursing resentment about being disrespected or undervalued, emotions can push up and out with force – you may feel the need to make a stand! This eclipse can be a final nudge to take charge of your finances. Transits today can also bring out buried issues involving your money, things, or intimate world, and you’re ready to make changes. There could be a sudden emergence of a hidden desire, for example. If you’ve felt as if you’re in a rut emotionally, perhaps stuck on something from your past, this is a time to pull out of it or take steps towards that end. Ideas work you up, and you may feel a little fed up with a situation that’s been dragging on too long. Consider, however, that current transits incline you to believe that you can handle more than you truly can, and it’s important to avoid overcommitting. Instead, letting go of something that has already expired or outgrown its usefulness can lead to a real sense of freedom and liberation.
TaurusThe Lunar Eclipse today occurs in your sign, dear Taurus, and it’s a significant one as the final eclipse in a set. This set has been around for a couple of years, and today’s eclipse is the final nudge toward asserting your independence, understanding your relationship needs, and finding yourself. It’s a powerful prompt for self-understanding and personal epiphanies. This lunation can help point you in the right direction toward correcting imbalances, particularly in the me-you department in relationships. Suppose you’ve been defining yourself primarily through your relationships; you’re now ready to draw up your own terms. Aim to honor your needs and personal plans while also taking care of your relationships – your needs and the needs of a partnership aren’t mutually exclusive. There can be an accelerated, energized pace to a relationship and animated or impulsive communications now. Issues of independence and partnership can challenge you to make a decision, and it can be a time to confront, learn, and grow. If you assert yourself, do so with knowledge of your heart. Otherwise, impulsiveness can get you into a sticky situation. Consider that, around the time of an eclipse, you only see part of the picture–take your time drawing conclusions. As well, today’s aspects are enthusiastic and lively but also tense. Someone could be trying to get to you or pull your strings. They could be concerned about whether you are outgrowing them. An issue of freedom can come to a head now. Try not to be self-righteous if a confrontation occurs now.
GeminiToday’s Lunar Eclipse can be a wake-up call if you’ve neglected self-care, dear Gemini. Mental and emotional health need attention! If you don’t feel up to par, you may be overextended, and you now need to slow down. It can be a time to bring closure to an unresolved issue in your life. This eclipse reminds you of the importance of rest, replenishment, and reflection. Your body may be giving you a strong message to rest. Allowing yourself time for stillness can do wonders for you now. This can also be a time of an important idea, hunch, or intuitive flash that sets you on a new, more fulfilling path. Your true feelings about a matter can emerge now, and they’re unmistakable! You’ve just entered a rather busy cycle, and of course, this requires some juggling and balancing, but you’ll find it easier than usual to arrive at that sweet spot with current cosmic support. The important thing to remember during eclipse season is to avoid pushing something ahead. It’s better to observe, wait, and see. This may not be easy with today’s tense aspects. But if you avoid succumbing to impulsiveness, you can tackle issues with courage. The urge to sort out minor problems, iron out flaws, and eliminate waste or excess drives you, so use this extra energy boost to clear up the clutter in your daily life. You may need to let go of projects or ideas, and possibly attitudes, that are getting in the way of progress, particularly those that keep you from growing in your work and that prevent you from optimum health care practices. Aim to consider that you’re learning through your differences and finding new motivation to get past obstacles.
CancerToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a friendship issue to a turning (or boiling) point, dear Cancer. Look for ways to explore and share ideas with people in your life. If an affiliation changes or ends, another door opens rather quickly. This eclipse–the last in a set affecting your social life–pushes your true feelings about a person or project to the surface. Your passions and affections are hard to dismiss at this time! Your next step or the right path will ultimately clarify, and there can be an epiphany or turning point. Take your time with your discoveries. A compelling desire to express yourself uniquely or creatively can grab hold, romance can heat up, or there can be a conflict between a friendship and a love relationship. Watch for overdoing things or trying to please too many people. Keep in mind that more is not always better. Still, personal appeal is powerful on a mental level. Details may not be apparent or precise, but the bigger picture can inspire you. You’ll be arriving at interesting insights this week, but you may need to do some sorting between fact and fiction before you get there. Impulsiveness should be tamed today.
LeoToday’s Lunar Eclipse can shake up your view of your career, reputation, life path, or working life today, dear Leo. Circumstances now remind you that this is a time to restore balance between your personal and professional lives. In the coming weeks, you might come to a final decision about a move or change of career goals or focus. It’s from your realizations now that you might arrive at a conclusion later. While your emotions may feel too strong during the eclipse, you’re likely to gain tremendous clarity about the right path for you as you process them. Remember that goals tend to compete with one another when you have too much going on, so pacing yourself makes the most sense. With Mercury and Mars opposing Jupiter today, there can be quite a bit of pressure to spend time with family or at home, but also a big pull towards pursuing outside responsibilities and ambitions. Tensions lie in overblown expectations. Finding a balance is essential, but avoid adding more to your plate as a temporary fix. Enjoy new ideas that stoke your enthusiasm, but consider that details need more attention later.
VirgoToday’s Lunar Eclipse can bring a communication, learning, or transportation matter to a head or an important turning point, dear Virgo. Transportation or communication problems can be part of the picture, but these can lead to alternatives that ultimately serve you very well. Epiphanies can be significant enough to change your perspective. Announcements, awards, or completed projects can generate much attention. A new way to get around or opportunities to get out and about can emerge in the weeks ahead. With today’s Jupiter transits, something dragging on too long frustrates you, and you’re itching to do something about it. Remember that a lot is happening in your head, and you may end up talking ahead of yourself and possibly misrepresent yourself if you’re not careful. Still, you’re passionate about your ideas and pursuits and probably very excited about sharing ideas or stating your case. Learning is quick and easy! The motivation to learn or express yourself is strong. Mental energy is abundant but can turn into nervous energy if left unchecked. There can be so many opportunities and ideas available to you now –or so many assorted things to do — that you feel overwhelmed. While you should certainly think in big terms, avoid taking on so much that you don’t know where to begin. Also, watch for arguments that are ultimately not worth your time. You are certainly interested in knowing and sharing the truth right now, but you may be going over the top or putting your foot in your mouth if you don’t do your research first.
LibraFinancial activity or close relationships, including pressures or concerns, can be a big theme, dear Libra, with a Lunar Eclipse occurring in your sector of shared resources and debts today. There may be an argument about money or property for some. As sharp as you are, watch for skipping necessary steps. It can be a time for resolving a business or money problem or an issue of respect or ownership in a relationship. You are looking at your money and possessions in a whole new way, and you might come up with creative ideas on how to earn more or use what you already have. You’re seeking more independence with money. You dare to try something new or approach your life in a new and unique way. You tend to thrive most when given space and flexibility to work your magic. However, there can be issues brewing over an ownership or intimate matter. While thinking big is a good exercise, be alert for excesses that need correcting. For example, if you’ve been overspending or over-borrowing, or too dependent on others for your happiness, then this is a time to see the need to bring things back into balance. Push-pull energy in a relationship can be prominent. Today’s eclipse can act as a cosmic push to make final changes to improve your financial situation.
ScorpioYou could feel torn between going your own way and including someone or boosting a relationship, dear Scorpio. While a tough choice, you may be able to compromise. Today’s transits and Lunar Eclipse highlight differences. The eclipse is a cosmic push to sort out close relationships and matters of independence/dependence. You’ll be making important decisions about partnerships in the weeks ahead. For now, the recognition of relationship needs and feelings can come in a rush! Use your powers of negotiation, talk things through, and aim to resolve problems. Certainly, opposing viewpoints can inflame quickly now, but consider where you might channel your energy constructively. Ideally, through some conflict or restlessness, you see ways to make meaningful improvements to your life. It’s best to remember that push-pull energy can play with your perceptions. Try to tackle things one at a time rather than wear yourself out, and while you should take things in now, wait to make the bigger decisions later.
SagittariusToday’s Lunar Eclipse can point to a turning point, dear Sagittarius. In the weeks ahead, there could be a culmination related to work or health that has been in the pipeline for a couple of years. There can be a nice release or final word on a matter. This happens during a cycle of increased attention to your emotional world, which nudges you toward finding just the right work-rest balance. The focus should be on physical and mental health, which becomes especially obvious if you’ve prioritized either over the other! While your work or routines can bring you a lot of joy, you seem to always want to do more and more, and this can cause problems now. Wonderful energy for work and health remains with you–it’s excess that needs watching under current conditions. Consider consequences, but if you need to break out of a bad habit or a frustrating circumstance, this can be the helpful push you need. There can be a good feeling of purging or release involved with bringing something to light.
CapricornToday’s Lunar Eclipse nudges you to sort out your relationships with friends and lovers, dear Capricorn. Your relationships can be demanding, exciting, or simply more active and productive than usual. Your social and love life may conflict at this time, with powerful pulls in both directions! Relationship issues or even feelings for someone that have been present but not acknowledged or dealt with are likely to surface. Independence, freedom, and beliefs can be hot topics! On another level, you may have trouble deciding whether you want to stand out from the crowd or work along with others. Collaborating might be an option that frees up your time and energy for other endeavors, even though you more often than not prefer to create on your own schedule. While it’s a time for thinking in big terms, it’s also important to consider your abilities and resources before taking on too much. Try not to rush things for the best results. News coming in today can be exaggerated, and it’s wise to sit with your feelings for a little while longer before acting on them.
AquariusAny problems brewing in your domestic or personal life can reach a head this week with today’s Lunar Eclipse and Jupiter’s oppositions, dear Aquarius. There can be a cosmic push for you to make changes to bring your life back into balance, particularly if you’ve been putting too much of yourself into your work and responsibilities. You’ll be reorganizing your priorities! A decision about a move or career change could be in the cards in the weeks ahead. There can be a nice release from an obligation or a final word that helps clarify your next step. Keep in mind that your words and actions are more noticeable and seem to come with more consequences with these transits, but you also have quite a competitive edge. You might enjoy pouring yourself into a project that gets you somewhere as you tear down obstacles and solve problems. The desire to break free from situations that restrict or limit you is with you, and this can be positive if it gives you the courage to make overdue changes. However, it’s better to feel things out before finalizing anything in the week of an eclipse. Push yourself to think of new ways to improve your life, but keep everything reasonable.
PiscesWith today’s Lunar Eclipse and a Mercury-Mars-Jupiter configuration, dear Pisces, minor issues loom large. However, what emerges now can bring you to a wonderful turning point, especially concerning transportation and communication. It can be a hectic time when it can be challenging to focus on the things that inspire and drive you. Your words are more powerful now, so use this energy well. It’s the last of a series of eclipses falling along your communications axis, and you will likely want to bring a project to fruition or make a final decision. In the coming weeks, your ideas or work can receive special attention. Aim not to rush things, however. Pay attention to your feelings and revelations, but take your time acting on them. Watch for impatience and sharp words if others aren’t moving as quickly as you are. Still, pushing your usual boundaries with learning and communications can be good for you, as long as it’s not excessive. Debate can be thrilling but disruptive if you take it too personally. The desire is real to move out of your comfort zone regarding learning, thinking, and doing. Look for opportunities to expand your knowledge or skills without adding too much to your plate.
