Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Moon in your solar third house today, dear Aries, you enjoy some variety and follow your curiosity. While it may not be the best day for concentration, you’re enthusiastic and motivated. Mercury, the messenger planet, heads into your partnership sector, and until the 22nd, you’ll have the upper hand in negotiations. You consider the other side of the coin, which helps endear you to others and allows you to enjoy a whole new perspective. Decision-making, however, may not be as easy since you see things from different angles! You especially enjoy bouncing ideas off others to get your reasoning powers working more effectively. You seek out others, and they seek you. In fact, you stand to learn a lot through one-on-one conversations.
TaurusYou could feel somewhat torn between wanting to collaborate and preferring to keep your own counsel today, dear Taurus. A compromise to this makes sense. It can be a time to make adjustments and take steps to improve your situation. With the Moon in your resources sector, it’s a good idea to regroup or take time for the things that truly matter. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your work and health sector. Until October 22nd, this messenger planet turns your attention to procedures and methods, perfecting projects, getting chores done, and organizing your living and working spaces. It’s a perfect time for updating skills and learning things that help improve your everyday routines and health. Work can involve particular attention to detail and communication. Watch for a tendency to fret during this period, however.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Gemini, and taking the lead or taking charge comes readily. Others are attracted to your naturally confident approach. There may be some scattering of energies today, and it makes sense to check in with yourself to understand whether your impulses are based on real need and not just boredom! Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your solar fifth house, where it will visit until the 22nd. This is a good cycle for self-expression, socializing, and spontaneous conversation or learning. There is an easier flow of communication and a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity in the period ahead. You’re drawn to (or bringing in) people who encourage and make it easy for you to express yourself.
CancerYou could feel on edge if you feel caged in or if people are trying to pin you down to an answer or a commitment today, dear Cancer. Take extra breaks or rest periods, if possible. The Moon spends today in the background of your solar chart, and its harmony with Mars in your home and family sector boosts your motivation to tap into your deeper needs and feelings. Also today, Mercury heads into your sector of heart, home, and family. Until October 22nd, your personal life is busier. There can be valuable learning lessons through family–or about family. You can be mainly preoccupied with personal and domestic matters, and this mental focus can be beneficial. You are not as forthcoming with your ideas with the rest of the world, and you’re perhaps a little more protective than usual about your thoughts. This is a fine time for thinking about long-term security or endeavors with long-lasting potential.
LeoWhile today can get off to an indecisive start, good energy is with you for smoothing things out as the day advances, dear Leo. You’re ready to make the most of a situation. Keeping your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences. Also today, Mercury heads into your solar third house, where the messenger planet will visit until October 22nd, boosting and speeding up your daily affairs and igniting your curiosity. This is a pleasant position for Mercury and can feel fresh, although there can be times when it’s challenging to concentrate. It’s a good cycle for easy and pleasant communications, generating new ideas, and developing new interests. Learning, speaking, writing, and transportation matters are in good shape–and in sharp focus.
VirgoWhile it may not be the ideal day for tasks that require deliberate action or concentration, dear Virgo, you’re absorbing a lot. Be sure to watch for communications that don’t express what you truly feel. As the day advances, you enjoy feelings of inspiration. Consider that if you have too much on your plate, you may end up feeling quite hemmed in or restless. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your solar second house as it moves out of your sign after an extended stay. This transit helps simplify your life on some levels, although you might sometimes be missing critical spiritual considerations when making decisions and drawing conclusions. Still, you’re in great shape for focusing on priorities. Going forward, you’re more preoccupied with practical affairs. You want to build and develop your ideas and see tangible results for your efforts. It’s a great time for considering improvements to business pursuits and organizing your finances.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Libra, encouraging you to explore, expand, and diversify. You’re seeking a little more inspiration now. Also today, Mercury enters your sign, where it will visit until the 22nd, and you’re likely to be primarily engaged, on the ball, and busy. Your words have more impact than usual during this period, and decisions come more readily and spontaneously. With Mercury in your corner, you can enjoy improved decision-making, more alertness and curiosity, and a greater ability to talk about your plans. Still, you’re likely to make more executive decisions now, as you’re inclined to go your own way on a mental level. It’s a time of year when you can most efficiently use the power of words to attract what you want for yourself.
ScorpioYou can experience some extra sensitivity to others’ reactions and comments early today, dear Scorpio. As the day advances, you might make more sense of your feelings or a situation or get in touch with an attitude or fear that has held you back. It can feel good to be more self-aware! Also today, Mercury heads into your privacy sector for a stay until October 22nd, and the period ahead is a time to review and assess recent projects, interests, and studies. It’s also a good time for tying up loose ends on a project or wrapping up a project. You might often look back for answers during this cycle, and you can take extra time for contemplation, meditation, research, and behind the scenes study or work. While this can be a cycle of limbo for some issues, it’s a vital time for reflection. Ideas are, in fact, in the developmental stage, and you intuitively sense that you shouldn’t share them until they–and you–are ready.
SagittariusToday’s Moon inspires your need for companionship, feedback, or a different perspective, dear Sagittarius. Also today, Mercury heads into your solar eleventh house, where it will transit until October 22nd. During this cycle, you’re in good shape for inventive new ideas, sharing ideas with others, and networking. Valuable learning experiences can result from interactions with friends, associates, or groups. It’s a fine time for exploring your happiness goals and a boost to your optimism. This transit brings more attention to teams, friendships, networking, groups, community, and causes, particularly on mental levels. It’s also a time of dreaming up new possibilities and possible solutions to problems.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Capricorn, encouraging you to handle your practical affairs. It’s difficult to fit in everything you want to do since you have so much on your mind, and simplifying makes sense. Expressing yourself with intention and enthusiasm can help cut through the fluff. Also today, Mercury heads into your career and reputation sector. Until the 22nd, it’s a period for taking care of business, showing off your skills, or getting attention for your abilities. You’re packing a stronger punch in your communications. Likewise, others are taking more notice of what you’re saying. Your career may require more communication and people skills in the period ahead. There is much information to absorb, learn, and take in that will assist you in making choices and furthering your goals, and it makes sense to pay close attention.
AquariusToday’s Moon reminds you of the need for light entertainment and fun, dear Aquarius. You seem to need that extra spark right now, even if it temporarily pulls you off the track. Also today, Mercury begins its transit of your adventure sector, where it will visit until October 22nd, favoring communications and broad thinking. You’re more optimistic than usual, and you’re spontaneous and free with your ideas and thoughts. You might discover a new interest, or you could be pursuing a particular topic with greater curiosity during this cycle. This transit helps ease self-expression and smooth out communications. You might frequently think about ways to enjoy a change of pace and experiences beyond the ordinary and mundane. There is a greater hunger for learning, but not the rote kind–you want instead to expand your knowledge.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, bringing out a reflective frame of mind, dear Pisces. A hiatus can be refreshing now, but you must allow yourself the opportunity! Also today, Mercury heads into your shared resources sector, where it will visit until October 22nd. During this cycle, you more often read between the lines and strategize, and you may be doing some valuable research or investigation. It’s a good time to bring more common sense to finances or complex matters. There can be profound, interesting conversations with others and precious moments of self-discovery. You tend to pick up more from your environment than usual, seeing motives, subtleties, and power dynamics more clearly. It’s harder to break your concentration as you are far less sensitive to potential distractions. With this focus, you can move mountains.
