Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon’s move into your solar third house stirs your curiosity, dear Aries, and a Mercury-Pluto trine builds your determination to meet your goals and the ambition to exceed them. Today is about tuning out the negative distractions and focusing on what matters. Making improvements is in focus. You’re exceptionally skilled at understanding current limitations and working around them. Motivation is high right now, especially for health and work matters. Fortunately, good energy is with you for feeling confident about your work, chores, duties, or routines. It’s a great time to tackle a puzzle or project, and the chances of gaining powerful new insight into a matter run high. You have a solid sense of your priorities, and you’re communicating with authority. Securing or accomplishing something important to you can be your primary focus, and it works! Self-improvement is a theme.
TaurusThere can be pleasant intensity in some of your interactions today, dear Taurus. You’re patient with people, ideas, and creations, and this respect for the long game brings rewards. You might solve problems and gain new insight into your life, particularly with romance, beliefs, ideas, and creative pursuits. With today’s Mercury-Pluto trine, you have the power to gently lead, persuade, and influence. Romantic relationships may well grow to a new level through communication and greater understanding. Sharing your plans with someone and perhaps brainstorming to improve them can be rewarding. Today is also good for promoting your ideas and planning your next move.
GeminiYour motivation improves today, dear Gemini, which boosts your ability to focus. The Moon moves into your sign, and your planetary ruler, Mercury, harmonizes with Pluto. These transits increase and expand the power and passion in your communications. You’re not content to only scratch the surface of an issue, preferring to see things all the way through. Fortunately, getting to the bottom of a matter is in favor. New strategies and developments in your personal or family life are promising, and conversations (or further thought) can be helpful and revealing. You gravitate toward meaningful projects. Things that will stand the test of time are more appealing. Many good things take time and effort, and you’re happy to contribute. Secrets may emerge in a relieving rather than uncomfortable way. There is more persuasiveness to your personality today, and you’re inclined to think more seriously and deeply. Furthermore, research may turn up something valuable.
CancerThe Moon moves into your privacy sector today, dear Cancer, and you need a break from hectic or demanding situations. It’s a time for extra rest or activities that help you recuperate and renew your emotional energy. However, today’s Mercury-Pluto trine energy is excellent for concentration and focus. Deep subjects and previously hidden information can figure strongly now. You might now see things you weren’t ready to see in the past. You are not necessarily putting all of your cards on the table. In fact, you probably can benefit from some restraint at the moment, but you can make headway with projects and plans, and you might gain insight into a relationship or an important person in your life. Working with someone one-on-one can be of mutual benefit.
LeoThe Moon moves into your social sector, dear Leo, and it’s a good time of the lunar month to seek out friends or inspiration. While it’s a generally good time to experiment or diversify, today’s Mercury-Pluto transit makes it easier to focus and concentrate, which benefits you greatly. You’re pleasantly busy coming up with interesting ideas or plans. Your priorities are clearer, and you can be particularly motivated to put energy into activities and projects that help secure your future. You’re interested in the long game today! Financial, business, and other practical matters can thrive as you’re incredibly sharp and skilled at getting to the heart of a situation. Thinking more deeply about these matters can lead to valuable strategies and insight. It may very well be that reducing and pruning can be the best way to grow and improve.
VirgoWith the Moon’s move into your solar tenth house, long-term goals or your responsibilities can be an emotional focal point today, dear Virgo. Fortunately, a Mercury-Pluto transit today increases your determination. People gravitate to your mental intensity, and you fill with strength and resolve. Mercury is your ruler and is especially strong in your sign. Pluto further supports Mercury, placing you in an advantageous position, particularly with health, creative projects, personal appeal, romance, or children. You might gain information that benefits you immensely, or feedback can be instrumental. A conversation, thought process, or journal entry might help release recent mental tension. You might discover an entertaining passion or interest that is pleasantly absorbing.
LibraYou can be in a great position to see what others are overlooking today, dear Libra. Today’s Mercury-Pluto transit is good for considering what you might get rid of to help simplify and improve your life. It doesn’t have to be about material things–shedding mental attitudes or habits that no longer serve you can be in focus. New insights or information coming in can be particularly useful. Family members or loved ones can have something valuable or meaningful to share. Giving your support, even encouraging words or advice, can be rewarding. Conversations or deep thoughts can pull up some exciting revelations. The best way to truly process and digest recent experiences is through some form of relaxation or retreat, as you may need to step back from situations to see the whole story.
ScorpioYou’re taking in important, helpful, and even healing information today, dear Scorpio. With a Mercury-Pluto transit, you’re in great shape for communications, and revelations related to friendships and special projects can be powerful. You’re in an ideal position to persuade, share, and connect. Learning flows well, and you can find your projects or interests wholly absorbing. There might be a moment of truth and new insight in a friendship. Connections made now can be very fruitful. Conversations are instructional but also satisfying, if considerably more serious than usual. You may be doing some guiding or teaching, and it’s fulfilling. This transit points to a clean-up period on a mental level.
SagittariusWith today’s Mercury-Pluto transit, dear Sagittarius, you’re in great shape for concentrating on your priorities. You have an intuitive sense of what’s useful and can pinpoint what may not be as essential. Meaningful conversations and positive word of mouth can figure strongly. You might arrive at a valuable conclusion about a career or money matter. You’re willing to put something you no longer need behind you–to your benefit–and it can be about letting go of a bad attitude or circumstance. Mercury is at the top of your solar chart, and others hear you loud and clear. Today, especially, you can use your voice for good. The Moon moves into your partnership sector, and what others feel about you can assume more importance to you.
CapricornToday’s Mercury-Pluto trine enhances your persuasive abilities, dear Capricorn, and sharpens your perceptions. This transit offers good energy for reading, listening, conversing, learning, and absorbing valuable information. You may feel inspired by an idea, gain a new understanding of a situation, or discover something that excites you and positively impacts future projects. A new interest or study may be on the horizon. You’re in an excellent position to promote, publish, learn, or present your ideas. You’re also more ambitious and focused on setting goals. This can be a good day for a personal revelation or an honest conversation. You can be intrigued by uncharted realms of topics and ideas.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your creative sector, dear Aquarius, encouraging a special focus on the more playful, pleasurable, and satisfying elements of your life. With today’s Mercury-Pluto transit, you’re more likely to go along with changes because you see their value. This transit helps you gain insight into intimate or financial affairs and make positive lifestyle adjustments. You naturally and instinctively attract the right information, and connections can be advantageous. With this transit in play, the focus should be on strategy and plans of action rather than quick maneuvers. You might open your eyes to something, now that you’re truly ready to see it. Conversations and connections are likely to work very much in your favor. Plus, as you feel more directed and goal-oriented, your concentration improves.
PiscesWith the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house today, dear Pisces, the need or desire to decompress and enjoy familiar settings comes to the fore. Still, today’s powerful trine between Mercury and Pluto makes it an excellent time to enjoy a sense of mission, passion, or purpose. The connections you make or conversations you have can be very revealing and fruitful. The desire to be productive, useful, and helpful is growing. You might find the motivation to pursue a new path that improves your life, which can be as simple as an attitude change in light of recent revelations. Friends can have valuable input, or you may have something helpful to share with them. Either way, there can be satisfying exchanges now.
