Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour energetic planetary ruler, Mars, stations and turns retrograde today, dear Aries, and until January 12th, there can be some reconsiderations. Slowdowns and reparations are likely in your studies, daily affairs, communication, or transportation. There can be complicated matters and delays to manage. A project or course of study may feel uninspiring, and it’s time to go in deep to understand why. During this cycle, challenges with self-expression, energy, motivation, pushing/selling your ideas, or neighbors and siblings may occur. Social interactions can be a little strained if you feel the need to hold back or if communications lack some spontaneity. There can be frustration with daily routines or delays or breakdowns. You’ll do best if you focus on developing and editing work already in progress in the coming ten weeks. It’s time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. You could return to old studies, lessons, or projects, or encounter delays in current ones that necessitate some revision and creative planning. The Moon spends today in your sector of responsibilities, career, long-term goals, and reputation or status, and you’re ready to take care of business.
TaurusThere is good energy for teaching and sharing with you, dear Taurus, but you are at your best if the activities you take part in today allow you some room to explore or change your mind. Still, energies are somewhat confusing today as Mars turns retrograde. Until January 12th, there can be some slowdowns, reparations, or reconsiderations with money, personal possessions, or belongings. On a psychological plane, matters of respect and worth come into play. The desire for more financial independence is building, but there can be some matters to sort out during this retrograde. If you feel undervalued, this can be a time to get to the root of the problem. Personal finances, business, and comfort levels are areas of focus, concern, or complexity. Some decisions may need revisiting. A review of money matters is necessary and beneficial, and caution or even anxiety can be involved. Money and security matters take on more significance for you during this cycle, but they are more complex than they have been. Fortunately, while delays can be annoying, changes of direction can give you the time to make valuable edits in the coming ten weeks.
GeminiWith today’s Moon, you seek hidden answers and motivations, dear Gemini. You might enjoy a bonding moment or special insight into your feelings. Today’s energies can still be on the confusing side with Mars turning retrograde in your sign. Until January 12th, you may feel you need more energy and direction. It can take some time to orient yourself to this, but once you do, you’ll benefit from taking extra time to look back, pause, rest, and reflect. Some things may catch up with you at this time, prompting a need to return to a previous condition or tie up loose ends. Questioning your plans is likely. The temptation to push ahead with personal plans has been strong, but circumstances now leave you feeling stuck. You’ll be at your strongest if you tame impatience and work on pursuits that need fine-tuning rather than taking on brand-new endeavors. It’s easy to overestimate your physical capabilities during retrograde Mars cycles, and it’s best to keep this tendency in check. You could be a little tired and more accident-prone, so be sure to get the rest you need. Ideally, delays or slowdowns steer you in more creative directions, even with some initial frustration. There are better times to make sweeping decisions, but refining your approach or re-examining your priorities is helpful.
CancerToday’s Moon supports compromises, negotiations, and breathing new life into friendships, dear Cancer. Even so, Mars stations and turns retrograde today, pointing to feelings of being in flux. Until January 12th, retrograde Mars can mean slowdowns, reparations, or reconsiderations, particularly in your private life. It’s best to watch for an obsession with personal issues or concerns about the past during this cycle. Although it’s a good time to look back, it’s best not to dwell. This cycle stirs up any unusual, overlooked, buried anger, feelings, and desires you’ve ignored. Thinking twice before venting feelings can be a good idea during this ten-week cycle–in a general way. You could have an increased need for rest, which is best to honor. At the same time, complicated desires can figure strongly. You could be dealing with some indecision, as finding direct routes to satisfaction can take time and effort. However, it’s a solid time to dig deep and understand yourself. Excavating deep feelings and resentments can be a helpful and purging process.
LeoYou’re keen on improving your daily habits today, dear Leo. However, Mars is stationing as it turns retrograde today, suggesting a time of flux. Mars will be retrograde until January 12th, prompting some slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations in your social life. Backtracking is possible, and challenges may surface with friends or networks. A focus on the past is likely. There may be frustration with goals or dreams not manifesting soon enough, but this retrograde period helps you pause long enough to see where to make valuable edits to your plans. There can be a return to an old friendship or troubles from the past resurfacing in a current one. Initially, your enthusiasm may wane for your higher goals, dreams, hopes, group or community activities, or friendships before you find your way again, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks. With the shift happening oday, it’s best not to make sweeping decisions, and it’s wise to conserve energy.

Mars is retrograde today until January 12th, and you may be rethinking some elements of your current path. This cycle affects you mainly in the areas of career, responsibilities, and reputation. Your enthusiasm for public or professional matters may wane, or you might return to old projects to firm them up or redo them. You could feel as if you’re going through the motions in your work or with duties until you get in better touch with your desires and needs. Ambiguities might have you second-guessing or reassessing your goals. Aim to conserve your energy and avoid pushing things that require time to develop. It’s a fine period for editing projects already in progress, just not ideal for all-new initiatives. Buried feelings of anger or resentment could surface, and problem areas can magnify temporarily as the shift occurs today.
LibraMars stationing today can point to some frustrations or a feeling of being in flux, dear Libra. Mars begins its retrograde today and will continue in this state until January 12th. During this cycle, it’s appropriate to slow down, back up, and review. Enthusiasm for specific areas of life could change, mainly related to publishing, law, education, partnership, and belief systems. Your outlook and lust for life are evolving. You might turn to past projects for inspiration, or things can catch up with you, prompting a review, returning to a previous condition, or needing to tie up loose ends. There can be treasures in old projects and connections, and the trick is approaching them in new ways. The Moon in your home sector today suggests a particular need for some nesting or cocooning.
ScorpioToday’s Moon transits are suitable for making connections while keeping some independence or detachment, dear Scorpio. However, Mars stations and turns retrograde today, and the shift can create feelings of being in limbo. Mars will remain retrograde until January 12th, making slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations likely with intimacy, finances, and sharing. Retrograde Mars cycles tend to turn your attention to unresolved issues as you seek closure or look to reopen something that ended a while ago. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or there can be some ambiguity with finances, particularly debts and shared money or resources. Refocusing, backtracking, and reviewing can be themes in these areas. You could be exploring anger and assertion over profoundly buried matters and learning to manage your life on an emotional level in better ways. The steps you take to reorganize can benefit you greatly down the road.
SagittariusPractical rather than emotional matters tend to take up more space in your mind today, dear Sagittarius.

Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations can be themes in your relationships, particularly partnerships. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage related to a close connection, commitment, legal contracts, or negotiation. You have the chance to reassess how you’ve been dealing with others, and you might find new and improved ways of connecting. Taking things slowly is most beneficial in the weeks ahead. A partner may seem a bit distant or hard to read, or you’re inclined to explore your relationship needs more deeply. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness in your partnerships, and if they emerge, aim to work through them in new ways.
CapricornYou draw attention today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your sign all day. You might feel unusually hopeful about a goal or idea.

There can be complicated issues and delays to manage related to your job or health care, but plenty of chances to sort things out. Ultimately, you’re learning about what truly works for you. Remember that pushing yourself during this cycle will likely lead to frustrations and slowdowns, particularly in these areas of life. Initially, enthusiasm for your current duties, day job, or health regimes could wane, perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. Still, the adjustments you make in the ten weeks ahead can be invaluable. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness in your daily affairs. Routines or work may feel a little lifeless until you figure out ways to spruce things up. Reorganizing and editing efforts can be very fruitful during this cycle.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, dear Aquarius, and you require time to regroup and collect yourself. With Mars changing directions today, the key to success now seems more about building what you have than taking on new enterprises. Mars turns retrograde, and until January 12th, there can be some slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations with romance, studies, recreation, and creative or heartfelt pursuits. A relationship with a lover or a child could become more complicated, and you may turn to the past for answers. There can be a change of heart, or you could question what you enjoy or love doing, and a new approach becomes necessary. Aim to deal with pent-up anger, frustration, and passive-aggressiveness in your relationships. There can be complicated issues and delays to manage. Lackluster areas of your life are in the spotlight, motivating you to get in touch with your actual needs and desires. It’s a process that’s sometimes slow-moving, but it’s a valuable one! Do what it takes, slowly but surely, to get dysfunctional areas of your life back on track. Go gently today, and plan strategies rather than trying to push forward.
PiscesThe Moon is in your sector of friends, dreams, and wishes today, dear Pisces, encouraging your desire to connect and share. Mars stations and turns retrograde today, and the shift can bring some instability to the day nevertheless. Mars will remain retrograde until January 12th, and there can be slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations relating to your personal life, including home and family matters. Loved ones may not be as patient with you–or you with them. Instead, there could be some stalled projects or delays. It’s best to recognize that misjudgments of energy levels and physical capabilities are more prominent during retrograde Mars cycles. This way, you don’t push yourself unnecessarily. Generally, aim to rest, replenish, and observe before taking action. Today, desires can be tricky to understand. Keep in mind that sweeping decisions made now can be premature. The coming weeks are useful for dealing with buried anger and resentment, as well as for reviewing and fine-tuning projects around the home. Repairs may need doing, or circumstances are such that living conditions require some extra attention. Despite minor inconveniences, you’re on a path to new and improved home life and family relations. The work you do now will turn up rewards.
