Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon transits your sign all day, dear Aries, drawing your strong attention to your emotional needs, especially the unmet ones. The Moon aligns with retrograde Mars, stimulating the discovery of buried feelings about a matter. There can be some difficulty keeping your cool if you feel blocked. You can discover strong feelings and desires now that almost beg you to make changes, but it may not be clear where to begin. Avoid pushing matters, but pay attention to what emerges, as you may have been holding onto frustrations and resentments that need some attention. Look for the appropriate channels for releasing all the excess energy you have now. Consider that you have more impact on others than usual today and much of tomorrow. Self-directed activities might be best since you’re more independent and competitive at the moment.
TaurusToday’s energies are intense for personal discovery, dear Taurus, and strong memories or intense thoughts can figure strongly. The Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, aligning with retrograde Mars, prompting a strong focus on the past or seeking closure. Feelings erupting now can be quite revealing. This energy pushes trouble areas to the foreground for handling. Emotions bubbling up to the surface are strong and perhaps a little surprising since they can be based on previously buried anger or desires. Do watch for a tendency to work against yourself with so much going on under the hood. It may be best to tame impatience, which can lead to messy situations. The need for better energy or time management can become clear. Today also holds nice energy for personal attraction. Others may find you a bit mysterious and especially appealing.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Gemini, meeting retrograde Mars. Networking or a friendship stimulates all sorts of feelings now. A former friend or simply a strong memory of a past situation can figure strongly. Your feelings about a friendship matter can be more intense than usual, or unrest with friends and lovers may push to the surface. Aim to feel, experience, and take in, and then act on all of this later, since you’re not privy to the whole picture at the moment. It’s not ad time to lock something down. Still, what does emerge now can offer you profound insight into an old problem, and you are likely to feel purged and empowered as a result.
CancerWith the Moon’s transit of your solar tenth house all day, dear Cancer, you can feel quite strongly about handling your priorities. Nevertheless, you’re also feeling the need for more inspiration when it comes to your goals, career, responsibilities, or ambitions. Aim to draw upon the strength of your feelings to be productive and take the initiative, but do consider that it’s not the time to make big decisions. Both Mercury and Mars are retrograde, and it’s better to observe and consider strategies rather than begin something brand new. The need or desire to return to an old work matter or project is strong today. Impatience won’t move things forward if they’re not ready to go in that direction, so aim to take some time before making needed changes.
LeoThe day’s energies are good for lively conversations, debates, or encouraging news, dear Leo. However, you may need to deal with an old problem to get over a hump. The Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house, kindling your need for a little more inspiration or a detour from the routine. You could be craving a connection or mission through what you do, experience, and learn. You might take the time to feel, learn about, and understand your desires and drives rather than rush to satisfy them as the Moon meets retrograde Mars today. Frustration can center on intellectual planes, and it’s best to tame the tendency to say something too soon. Even so, today holds some promise for communications that are a little more deliberate or studied. You can connect with someone through a special gesture or interest.
VirgoThere can be some animation in your inner world today, dear Virgo. You may very well revisit an old topic or strong memory that’s likely to deepen your mood and perspective. The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house of intimacy and sharing, and it aligns with retrograde Mars there. This transit might awaken a need to reorganize your finances, or it may stir up feelings about a past relationship. You might tackle tricky power dynamics with someone. Projects that have less significance in your life may need to be put aside so that you can focus on putting a problem behind you. It’s a revealing time if you pay special attention to the drives and desires stirred today. A direct route to the finish line may not be apparent at the moment, but insights can be rich.
LibraThe Moon transits your opposite sign all day, dear Libra, and there can be stronger emotional energy surrounding close relationships. With the Moon’s meeting with retrograde Mars in this sector of your solar chart, you might get the chance to revisit old topics or handle long-standing problems. You might need to take a look at the hard issues in a partnership so that you can later take action to make some important changes. Instead, others can stir up strong feelings in you, which can be very revealing, leading to new goals, particularly related to relationships. Looking at things from a different angle, perhaps through someone’s unique perspective, can be instructional. A Venus-Uranus transit today is particularly strong for personal appeal. Others recognize and appreciate your more unique qualities.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house today, dear Scorpio, aligning with retrograde Mars there. Your focus can be on putting the details together, and you can be hellbent on resolving a problem. Going over old ground may be the key. There can be stronger emotional reactions than usual, which can be very revealing. Something that’s not working in the world of your work, daily routines, or health can dominate your life for now. While it’s not the best time to make serious decisions, it’s a strong time to observe and get in touch with buried desires or frustrations that need attention. You might recognize the need to do things differently or to seek more engaging or creative methods.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar fifth house of self-expression and joy, dear Sagittarius, and aligns with retrograde Mars there. Something can reignite old feelings for a project or person. Your emotions and desire nature are playing off one another. Emotions are strong and perhaps disruptive, but feelings that emerge today can be enlightening. Still, it may be best to take your time before jumping to conclusions. In the meantime, you can begin to figure out the root of recent frustrations. This can also be a time to pay special attention to past hobbies or pastimes that merit some attention. The desire to approach something with new energy can be strong.
CapricornThere can be vivid, motivating memories today, dear Capricorn, and the chance to return to an old problem with new energy. You might learn a lot about something that has been slowing you down or tripping you up. Challenging family or home life issues could emerge now. Pay close attention to resentment that seems to emerge out of nowhere. You’re learning to manage your time and energy more effectively during the current retrograde Mars cycle, and any progress you’ve made along these lines can be in focus now. Energies run high for home-related activities today, and the desire for more satisfaction or inspiration is strong. Influences now tend to stir your need for action, although it may not be immediately obvious precisely where to direct excess energy. Once you figure out a productive channel for it all, you can get a lot done, especially if you approach things from a new angle.
AquariusToday is strong for generating business ideas and seeing a personal project from a new perspective, dear Aquarius. While it can be emotionally charged at times, you may get the chance to deal with a problem area once and for all. Disorder with communications or transportation can be disruptive now, prompting you to make important changes and improvements. Aim to tame impatience that can lead you to trip over yourself. You may want to watch for speaking too quickly about a matter now. Otherwise, the day’s energies are good for focusing on interesting projects or personal interests. You might discover a new thing to like in a project or learning endeavor, or an interesting connection opens up for you. Something that’s said today could get you going, stirring you into action.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your money and resources sector, dear Pisces, meeting retrograde Mars there. You’re in good shape for sniffing out overlooked assets, attending to financial affairs and valuables, and discovering ways to boost your comfort. This transit may very well set up the discovery of an untapped resource. Looking back on old projects or ideas can be beneficial now. Consider that you may be tired of the usual routine in these areas, and a different approach becomes attractive. The methods you normally employ to get comfortable, feel more secure, or make and spend money can be due for a change. Transits today may serve to energize a brewing matter related to making money or, on an emotional level, respect, value, and self-worth. You might entertain a sudden desire or whim.
