Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe morning brings a greater awareness of your responsibilities, dear Aries. The Moon later moves into your resources sector, and you seek the chance to regroup. However, there can be tension brewing today and tomorrow, with the Sun heading into opposition with Uranus and a Full Moon tomorrow. This tension is most likely to center around money, ownership matters, sharing, or power dynamics. Whether someone owes you respect or money, the situation can come to a head this week. Debts, whether material or emotional, can be hot topics. While there can be unexpected events that try your patience, they can also reveal much about what kinds of changes you need to make to improve your life, particularly regarding relationships and finances. Aim to innovate rather than react or rebel. Pressures from others or the frustrating feeling of being weighed down by obligations can motivate you to become more self-reliant. Events occurring now serve as a strong reminder to manage debt or outstanding issues that may prevent you from feeling empowered and in charge.
TaurusThe first half of the day can prove to be a little challenging with mixed feelings or drives to manage, dear Taurus. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign, awakening your desire to connect. You seek emotional refreshment. As well, the Sun, currently transiting your opposite sign, is heading into opposition with Uranus, and you may be dealing with resistance or opposition to your ideas or plans. The need to reach a compromise can become apparent, although not easy. People in your life can trigger issues of freedom and independence that you need to explore. The Sun’s annual opposition to Uranus, as well as a Full Moon in your sign tomorrow, suggests the need for the right balance between togetherness and independence. The goal will be to understand your needs rather than only react to circumstances and people around you. There is much to discover about your feelings today and tomorrow.
GeminiA yearly Sun-Uranus face-off is about to occur, along with a Full Moon, dear Gemini, affecting your work and mental or physical health. You could be feeling as if you are at the mercy of others’ schedules, or there may be something from your past that re-emerges, and some personal truths come to light. You may very well discover what you’ve been missing in your life, which sets you on a path to finding it. In the meantime, energies today can certainly stir some frustration if you’ve been feeling restricted or overwhelmed. The challenge is to find a better balance between work/duty and rest/detachment. There can be some tension or resistance to manage before you come into your own today, but if you aim to take due time for yourself, you’ll be in the best shape. With the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house later today, you do best with activities that help you recuperate, regenerate, and heal.
CancerIn the first half of the day, you can feel a little blocked or tied down, dear Cancer. With the Moon’s move into your social sector later today, you’re more invested in your friendships or happiness goals and dreams. Your desire to contribute or get involved increases. There is a natural need to temporarily detach yourself from people and situations that pressure or stress you out. As the Sun heads into opposition with Uranus and a Full Moon is on its way, you can experience a disagreement or discrepancy that stirs your feelings or social life. If someone’s behavior bothers you, it would be wise to think about why, if only to learn more about yourself or to jump-start your own thoughts which can bring you to a new and improved perspective. There is the element of surprise, rebellion, or change in the atmosphere around you today and tomorrow. You’re likely to feel divided between feeling free and getting closer to someone or something. These influences shake up the usual routine and demand change if things are no longer working for you. Disruptions or epiphanies occurring today and tomorrow can push you towards positive change.
LeoYou seek more interesting experiences and ideas today, dear Leo. In the first half of the day, your ambitions to improve your work and wellness clash with this mission. It may not be easy to fit everything in, although your priorities tend to make themselves clearer as the day advances. The Sun and Uranus are heading into opposition, and with a Full Moon tomorrow, the need to make changes in your personal and professional lives becomes apparent. Epiphanies are likely to be about buried needs or feelings. Plans and schedules may change but are also likely to lead to important discoveries. You’re more visible today and tomorrow, making it best to protect your interests. Uncertainty or disruptions related to your career or general direction can be affecting your home or personal life. Dig deep and aim to recognize emotional needs for change and excitement.
VirgoYou may feel in limbo on a matter in the first half of the day, dear Virgo. Part of you wants some emotional distance from others, and another part craves more intimacy. Even so, today’s energies ultimately help pull up problem areas for better management. The Sun is heading toward an opposition to Uranus, and the Moon is almost full, making this a time to awaken to a new perspective. Still, there can be some mind-racing before you get there. While events or realizations occurring now can be disruptive or even jolting, they can also motivate you to make exciting changes. Through someone or a situation on the outside, you might learn about buried needs and desires. Relationships can feel unsettled, or plans can change suddenly, but stay open-minded about these things since changes can lead to improvements or discoveries that you might not have made otherwise. You serve yourself best if you make changes from the heart rather than merely through reactions.
LibraAreas of imbalance seem more evident today, dear Libra. It’s a relationship-oriented day with the Moon first in your partnership sector and then your intimacy sector. You’re more inclined to read between the lines rather than take things at face value, and you do more analysis, research, or investigation. The Moon is heading toward full, and the Sun is about to oppose Uranus, pointing to revelations and possible problems or tension related to finances. While they can motivate you to work harder, watch for burning out on it, impulsiveness with money, or combativeness in relationships. Aim for self-understanding. There is a tendency for people to challenge one another today, and it’s best to aim to deal with emerging issues of personal freedom head-on. Discovering buried needs and desires can be exciting.
ScorpioThe desire to handle your practical affairs is strong today, dear Scorpio, although there can be many distractions. With the Moon’s move into your partnership sector later today, you seek some balance and a different perspective on your life. The Sun is currently transiting your sign, and it’s heading into opposition with Uranus, and a Full Moon is on its way, pointing to some disruptions but also rich revelations. Epiphanies happening now have been a very long time coming, ultimately helping you break free from difficult and negative patterns in your life. Changes in plans or unexpected events are possible, and others’ unreliability can motivate you to be a little more self-sufficient. Someone in your life may be triggering your own dormant needs for freedom, independence, and excitement, and you are likely to learn important things about yourself and personal goals through your experiences and interactions now and this week. Even if it’s annoying, a valuable new perspective can emerge through your dealings.
SagittariusThe need for recreation and leisure continues to be strong in the first part of the day, dear Sagittarius. Even so, it may not be easy to pour your heart into these things with your obligations on your brain. Later today, the Moon heads into your work and health sector, where it will transit for a couple of days, and the desire to tidy up your affairs comes into play. Tomorrow brings a Full Moon and a Sun-Uranus opposition, charging up the atmosphere today. It may be challenging to find your emotional center just for the moment, but changes or new awareness of buried needs can push you in a positive direction, so aim to be patient and flexible. It’s better to innovate than rebel when Uranus energy is strong and challenging. Events seem to trigger your own needs for more independence or freedom, particularly with work and daily routines. Perhaps you’re considering lifestyle changes that can lead to a freer approach to your life or more creative and fulfilling work.
CapricornThe Moon continues its transit of the lowest part of your solar chart today, dear Capricorn, and you crave security and steadiness. The need to wind down may clash with your ambitions in the first part of the day, but you may need to center yourself for emotional refreshment. Later today, you seek more involvement and feedback. The Sun heads toward its yearly opposition to Uranus, and the Moon is heading toward full, charging the emotional atmosphere. These influences may shake up the status quo in your social or romantic life. People in your life may be rebellious, defiant, or unreliable, but changes in plans open up possibilities you might not have known existed otherwise. Aim to keep an open heart, mind, and schedule. Epiphanies can occur about a relationship or creative direction. A friend could push you in the right direction concerning finding good outlets for your creativity and self-expression, education, or even romance. Part of you wants to join in, and another part craves the freedom of minimal ties, and finding a balance is important.
AquariusYou may need to give your mind a rest today before turning back to practical and logical thinking with increased energy, dear Aquarius. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector for a couple of days, prompting a more inward focus as you recharge your energy. While it’s best to avoid hasty actions today and tomorrow, it’s a powerful couple of days for self-discovery. The Sun heads toward its yearly opposition to Uranus, and a Full Moon will occur tomorrow. Life seems to accelerate, giving you more courage to make a change, but it’s best to make considered adjustments rather than merely react to frustrating circumstances. Aim to understand your own heart before taking action. Watch for rebellious reactions that don’t serve you well, choosing instead to focus on making improvements.
PiscesYou seek a chance to regroup today, dear Pisces, as the Moon continues to transit your solar second house in the first part of the day. As the day advances, you’re more interactive. The Sun is approaching its yearly opposition to Uranus, and with a Full Moon also close, changes in plans can lead to discoveries, perspectives, and insight that truly improve your life. Try to be open to change, but aim not to make sudden moves until you know your heart on a matter. There can be an epiphany or moment of truth today or tomorrow that can be a little disruptive but also relieving, refreshing, and revealing. There can be a need for self-honesty about an important issue. Feelings that you’ve brushed aside or buried can emerge that surprise you with their force–or their truth! Opposition to your ideas or plan is possible, but either way, you know where you stand. It’s a powerful time for learning more about yourself.
