Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt’s easy to live in your head today, dear Aries. There can be some struggle with indecision due to overthinking, but staying on the fence about a matter may be preferable to hasty decision-making. However, with a few adjustments, you can find unique ways to relate and interact. Also today, Mercury moves into the sector of your solar chart that rules your intimate world, long-term strategies, work on the self, investigations, and attraction to that which is hidden or taboo. Your ability to break through appearances to get to the heart of a matter strengthens. This cycle will continue until November 17th, and until then, you can be busy thinking about deeper issues or handling accounting matters. Mercury here also helps bring more objectivity to complicated and deep-rooted feelings and complex situations. You could do valuable research or investigation. It’s a good time to apply common sense to finances. Deep, engaging conversations with others and self-discovery are themes. You’re inclined to observe more than participate during this cycle — your curiosity increases concerning all things complicated, taboo, mysterious, and unresolved.
TaurusYour mind tends to wander today, dear Taurus, and you don’t have as much patience with details. Under these conditions, it’s probably best to wait and see. With Mercury’s move into your partnership sector today, you thrive on communicating in the weeks ahead. Others seem to rev up your thinking processes, and even if you only sometimes take their advice, you can benefit from their feedback. You’re more inclined to weigh the pros and cons, negotiate, and discuss matters. It’s an excellent mental exercise, but there will be many times during this cycle when you’re saying things from your head and not your heart with mixed results! Remind yourself of healthy communication patterns. It’s a potentially active period for really getting to know significant people (or a significant person) in your life. You seem to have a stronger need for intellectual stimulation through others during this Mercury transit that lasts until November 17th. Frequently sharing your ideas and decision-making processes with someone naturally follows.
GeminiA minor challenging Mercury aspect today can make decisions a little tricky, dear Gemini. Playful or casual conversation may not work well in professional or public settings, leading to misunderstandings. There can be some scattering of mental energies. Also today, your planetary ruler, Mercury, enters your solar sixth house. As you advance, you’ll see an increasing emphasis on daily routines, work, health, and self-care or self-improvement programs. It’s a good time to organize your work and workspace and seek information that helps you improve your health, habits, and daily routines. Until November 17th, you’re in great shape to read, write, and discuss your work and patterns and develop or brush up on necessary skills. Take in as much as you can, but also aim to take the time to sort out minor problems and details. Tidying up your daily routines and improving habits can do wonders for you now. Work or chores can keep you especially busy or might involve more attention to detail and precise communication.
CancerEnergies aren’t very supportive for making good, clear decisions today, dear Cancer, but you’re in good shape to play with ideas. Something or someone challenges your thinking on a matter, which can also lead you on tangents. You may need personal space or time to think. Fortunately, once you get it, you can feel far more centered. Mercury begins its transit of your solar fifth house today and will continue as a guest there until November 17th. Your desire to be heard and seen as unique is growing. It’s a strong cycle for creative intelligence and expressing your ideas in more innovative and dynamic ways. There can be a stronger focus on creative endeavors, children, romance, entertainment, and pastimes. Spontaneous conversation or learning can be in focus and extraordinarily beneficial. People are attracted to your mind and intelligence, or you’re connecting to others who are especially interesting. This cycle creates a more effortless flow of communication and a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity. You’re more inclined to play games, think about or analyze your love life, and express your affections verbally.
LeoDecisions can be challenging to come by or jumped into too quickly today, dear Leo. Either way, misinformation or overthinking can play with your head now. While your plans and ideas are big, keeping expectations realistic is best. Interests are plentiful right now, however, and that certainly does feel good. Also today, Mercury moves into your solar fourth house for a transit that lasts until November 17th. Notable during this transit are increased activities on the home front or valuable lessons from loved ones. You’re expressing yourself more fully with the people closest to you. Thoughts and conversations turn to personal matters. You also tend to reminisce more frequently during this cycle.
VirgoThere can be some confusion or indecision to deal with today, dear Virgo, or frustrations communicating. However, the Moon’s move into your sector of joy points to your enjoyment of the day despite occasional misunderstandings. It’s a good time to explore your need to create and share. Mercury begins transiting your communications sector today and will continue its visit until November 17th. This is a good, natural, and pleasant position for the planet of communications, keeping you busy and engaged. Your curiosity about others is powerful. It’s a strong time for detail work (although not necessarily concentration levels), easy and pleasant communications, and the generation of new ideas or the development of new interests. Learning, speaking, writing, and transportation matters are in focus and in generally good shape during this cycle. You will thoroughly enjoy both taking in information and relaying it.
LibraMercury leaves your sign and heads into your solar second house today, dear Libra, and will stick around until November 17th. In the period ahead, you’re thinking more often about your practical affairs or in practical terms. It’s a great time for considering improvements to business pursuits and organizing your finances. You can draw on more objectivity in your approach to spending, saving, and making money. While Mercury has been helpful as it transited your sign in recent weeks, there may have been times when it left you feeling a little wired. Now, you’re ready to build and develop, and your patience runs higher. Today, there can be some indecision or concerns related to work, health, or schedules. Promises made are unlikely to be easy or interesting to carry out when you’re called to task.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar third house today, encouraging a curious, active, and mental approach to the day, dear Scorpio. You’re paying more attention to personal interests and contacts. In fact, Mercury moves into your sign today, boosting your curiosity further. Mercury’s transit lasts until November 17th, and in the period ahead, you’re likely to keep yourself busy and crave more variety and movement in your life. You’re open to new ideas and interests, and your words have more impact than usual. Your decisions also come more readily and spontaneously, which is particularly welcome after a period of frequent indecision. Today, watch for speaking too soon or making promises and committing to something that later holds no appeal.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into your solar second house, dear Sagittarius, encouraging you to stick with familiar activities. It’s a good time of the lunar month to settle in and get comfortable. Mercury enters your privacy sector today, where the Sun and Venus are currently transiting, further emphasizing your private life. During this Mercury transit, which lasts until November 17th, you’re likely to muse about and analyze your recent past more frequently. Where you are in your personal journey and the feelings you keep to yourself can be the focus. You’re more impressionable and sensitive, taking in more than usual. You are less inclined to speak up, or you could find that people are not listening to what you have to say as much as they usually do! Today, watch for faulty decision-making due to missing information. There can be exaggeration or misinformation to deal with, which can be genuine learning experiences as long as you avoid jumping to conclusions or jumping into a decision based on these things.
CapricornThe Moon moves out of your privacy sector and into your sign today, dear Capricorn, and emotions come forcefully to the surface, ready to make connections. This transit encourages a focus on yourself and your emotional needs. The desire for a fresh start is strong today. Also today, Mercury moves into your social sector for a transit that lasts until November 17th. With Venus and the Sun already there, you’re in a strong position for networking in the weeks ahead. This cycle encourages a more relaxed rapport with associates, friends, and networks. It’s also an active period for innovative and enterprising thinking. You’re paying particular attention to your dreams, wishes, hopes, and happiness goals, and you’re finding yourself more and more interested in what others are doing, saying, and thinking.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your privacy sector today, dear Aquarius, and you gravitate to behind-the-scenes or unassuming activities today and tomorrow. Still, Mercury heads to the top of your solar chart today, where it will transit until November 17th–the most public part of your solar chart–and your goals and responsibilities are often on your mind. In the weeks ahead, your ideas or advice can be in higher demand. Your smarts and know-how help you advance during this cycle. Or, you’re taking in valuable information that helps you further your goals and improve your career and business. Transits today can leave you feeling a little lazy mentally or hazy on the details, however. Take your time drawing conclusions.
PiscesWhile this is not an ideal day for making decisions since you may be on the fence about more than one issue, dear Pisces, the Moon’s move into your social sector helps you take things lightly. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your solar ninth house, stimulating your curiosity until November 17th. It’s a solid communication cycle, although it’s better for personal interests and motivation than attention to detail. You’re looking for the purpose behind what you’re learning, and you’re particularly intuitive and visionary. You’ll be expanding your mind and your interests in the weeks ahead. It’s a wonderful cycle for an optimistic frame of mind as you seek to understand your life and the world around you.
