Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon begins the day in your sign, dear Aries, enlivening your emotions and putting you in active touch with your needs. When the Moon enters Taurus, it heads into your resources sector, drawing out your practical side for the remainder of the day. There can be a stronger focus on money, possessions, and business matters. Or, this transit may instead be about craving comfort and security. A smooth, easygoing approach to others and your work or chores yields the best results as the Moon harmonizes with Venus. Interactions can be tricky later today. There can be a slight struggle between desiring to take care of business or collaborate with someone. You both do and don’t want others’ feedback! It’s probably best to avoid spending too much time deciding the best path since your gut feelings may serve you better than mentally tossing around possibilities. It can be difficult focusing on priorities, but loosening up may benefit you now.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Taurus, animating your emotions. You crave more interactivity with this transit! Early day, however, continues a private, insular theme. You can feel re-energized once the Moon enters Taurus, and good energy is with you to connect with others and cooperate. Personal urges tend to override most other concerns. Others see you in a particularly attractive light, and your need to be understood and acknowledged comes to the fore. You’re in good shape for hobbies, leisure activities, and romance. Later today, aim to learn from your interactions, even if they are frustrating. Your responses to others can surprise you and jumpstart your own thinking processes, even if you disagree.
GeminiYour hopefulness for the future and sense of community are strong in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. You may feel a stronger need for private time or extra time to regroup emotionally as the day advances. It’s a time in the lunar month to explore your inner world, and lying low can be beneficial. Quiet activities and pleasurable pastimes are in favor, and taking things easy is fortifying. You’re seeking better or more comfortable living conditions and arrangements. Bringing more artistry and harmony to your domestic life can be rewarding now. Later today, look for different ways to approach an old problem. There can be a tendency for mental disconnects to occur, making it best to think twice before communicating.
CancerWhile you can be focusing on practical priorities as you begin the day, dear Cancer, you’d prefer to cooperate than compete as the day advances. It’s a good time to reconnect with your happiness goals. You want to explore different options rather than go through the motions. The Moon’s move into your social sector and harmonizes with pleasant Venus, promoting an approachable, popular theme. There could be purchases made or gifts received that help you to connect and learn. Later today, it would be wise to avoid coming to quick conclusions. There is some awkward energy for getting the right message across, or you feel somewhat scattered on a mental level. Even so, this is a great time to learn from differences. You’ll get a stronger sense of your own opinion through your interactions.
LeoWhile you might begin the day with an anything-goes mood or the desire to follow a whim, dear Leo, the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart calls our attention to practical goals and priorities. You’re likely to feel some pressure, mainly of the good kind, to take care of business or take charge. It’s a good time to get back on track if you’ve veered a little off course. It can also be a fine day for discovering a good buy or deal. Building and collecting appeal to you more than usual. Cooperation comes more easily, even if there can be some mental disconnects later today. Troubles concentrating can limit your progress temporarily. Different perspectives can be frustrating, but they can also be good learning experiences.
VirgoYou can begin the day introspective and focused on restoring emotional strength, dear Virgo. However, the Moon heads into your spirit sector when it enters Taurus, and the desire to pull out of yourself comes on strong. More active involvement is appealing now–you’re now ready to participate rather than observe. The trick is to avoid shooting so high that you give up too quickly with Mercury in a minor challenging aspect. You can be excited about helping people understand your point of view or bonding with others about ideas and ideals can figure strongly. Later today, a conversation or even a criticism can throw you slightly off-center, but it can ultimately awaken you to a new perspective. Aim to take your time coming to conclusions nevertheless. Minor disconnects aside, the day holds good-natured energy for sharing and cooperating.
LibraYou’re inclined to observe and analyze today, dear Libra. Business strategy can thrive, and so can planning out personal moves. Quiet, pleasurable activities are in focus. The Moon heads into your solar eighth house, reminding you of your attachments. You’re connecting with your deeper feelings and needs. There can be a warm, intimate connection with someone or a special enjoyment of alone time as Venus, transiting your privacy sector, harmonizes with the Moon, Chiron, and Saturn. Sensitivity and genuineness endear you to others. An inner restlessness may kick in later today, and second-guessing your perceptions can lead to some indecision.
ScorpioThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re in good shape for taking care of details. Relationships and your social needs come into stronger focus as the day advances. It’s a good time of the lunar month for giving close relationships special attention. You’re seeking more balance and perhaps some feedback. It can be stimulating and rather straightforward to come to a nice you-me balance in your relationships today. Others appreciate your sincerity. A theme of cooperation, friendliness, and openness is with you, although it can be difficult to relax your mind later today. It may be best to avoid setting things in stone. Aim to take your time digesting everything before making conclusions.
SagittariusEarlier today is good for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood, dear Sagittarius, but you prefer not to idle as the day advances. A more purposeful mindset kicks in with the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house. You’re ready to put the work in with the Moon’s move into your work and health sector for a couple of days. You can quite enjoy yourself as you take care of things. It’s a fine day for easy productivity. As much as the urge to get cracking on duties, chores, work, or health routines is with you, there can be some doubts later today. You can quickly tire of anything that feels run-of-the-mill or lacking in magic and poetry at the moment with Mercury challenged. Look for creative solutions since it can be hard to focus on priorities if you have too many of them.
CapricornYou’re inclined to keep to yourself early day, dear Capricorn, but grow into a desire to share or express yourself. Fortunately, you’re received well. You tend to seek more interaction with the Moon’s move into Taurus and your solar fifth house. The Moon transits a sector of the chart for only two to three days, but it can serve to remind you of important needs. This particular transit encourages attention to self-expression, creativity, fun, pleasure, and leisure or entertainment. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. Venus harmonizes with the Moon, Saturn, and Chiron, boosting your social confidence and your personal outlook. You could be itching to break out of your usual schedules and habits. Later today, your attention span may be short, so aim to avoid taking on too much. Take this time to understand yourself and your feelings, but avoid making big decisions now.
AquariusYou can find yourself busy although not very focused as the Moon finishes up its transit of your communications sector today, dear Aquarius. The Moon then enters your solar fourth house, and you crave more quiet, calm, comfort, and familiarity. You’re in particularly good shape for bringing more balance to your domestic world, especially with help from Venus. Pleasurable, restful, and simple activities are tonics for you now. Finding your center is important at this point in the lunar month. Domestic issues tend to override other concerns as the day advances. Because you’re particularly sensitive to chaotic environments, a Mercury-Chiron aspect coming into play tonight can put a damper on your outlook temporarily. Letting go of a tendency to overthink can be hard to do, but worth the effort.
PiscesA practical frame of mind continues early day as the Moon finishes up its transit of your solar second house, dear Pisces. With this transit, you tend to prefer keeping things status quo, although the energy of yesterday’s Full Moon is stirring a desire to make improvements. As the day advances, things pick up pace with the Moon’s move into your communications sector. Venus has just begun its transit of your partnership sector, helping you attract helpful or pleasant connections. Today’s good for satisfying conversations and interesting ideas. You’re inclined to want to reach out. A bond might strengthen through sincere communication. It can be a time of making peace with someone. Mental disconnects or doubts later today can slow you down just a little, but you’ll benefit from doing so.
