Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re generally finding more joy or creating balance in your daily life and routines, dear Aries. In the first half of today, there can be mixed signals to decipher. Some nervous energy leads to a rather chaotic atmosphere in spots. You may be trying to take on too much at once. Keep things light, and keep your sense of humor. It may be best to slow down and stall decision-making until you’re clearer about your priorities. As the day advances, you’ll find it easier to get centered, establish priorities, and settle down. Patience can help you achieve your goals. You might renew an interest in a past hobby or entertaining pursuit. You’re in a motivated, stimulating frame of mind for making progress or being productive.
TaurusThe Moon is in your sign all day, pulling up emotions that demand some attention, dear Taurus. You’re sensitive and responsive now, and fortunately, the day’s energies support your need for a bit more interactivity and stimulation. The first half of the day can feel a little scattered, and a Venus-Jupiter aspect stirs some restlessness. You’re inclined to seek creative, physical, or otherwise tension-relieving outlets. Watch for impractical choices. As the day advances, good energy is with you for work behind the scenes or in the home. You can feel pleasantly dedicated to your loved ones and personal life. Today is good for progressing a hobby, pet project, or creative work. A strong attraction or interest can motivate you.
GeminiThe Moon spends another day in the sign behind yours, dear Gemini, continuing a need for some rest from a fast pace or a pleasant detour that refreshes you. Making your home or base of operations more comfortable and harmonious can be a satisfying focus, although the first half of the day can be a bit scattered. You might be tempted to take on more than is comfortably possible. There is some inclination toward over-indulgence. Unresolved matters from the past can resurface, allowing you to better understand where you are now. Even so, you’re in great shape for pouring concentrated energies into a learning endeavor or pet project as the day advances. Devoted energy to a special pursuit is satisfying.
CancerThe Moon spends another day in your social sector, dear Cancer, and networking or exploring personal interests can be satisfying. You’re enthusiastic about your pursuits and ideas, but watch for taking on so many things that you are no longer enjoying yourself. As the day advances, energies combine well for creativity and determination. Practical activities can be satisfying. You may stumble upon or uncover something that has been missing, lost, or hidden. You can feel pleasantly motivated by a relationship or particular person in your life, who is encouraging you, particularly regarding your mind, education, and ideas. You’re feeling more resilient and taking the smaller problems in stride.
LeoThe Moon spends another day in your reputation and responsibilities sector, dear Leo, getting you into stronger touch with your ambitions and goals. It may not be until later today that you feel ready to concentrate and focus, however. The first half of the day can be a little scattered if you’re entertaining too many ideas or pursuits. Enthusiasm is great, but if it leads you to overdo, it can end up subtracting from your joy. Get all the facts before you jump into something. Later today, you might be motivated to renew or revive an old interest, topic, project, or study. It’s a good time to put effort into something you feel passionate about, particularly related to your practical worlds, such as your work, money, or health. You’re inclined to seek out some order and direction.
VirgoThe Moon spends another day in your spirit sector, dear Virgo, keeping your spirits high. Nevertheless, this morning’s Venus-Jupiter aspect can point to a tendency to aim too high or to juggle too much. It may not be easy to direct yourself when you have too many options. In fact, you could find yourself spinning your wheels and not choosing anything. Beware of whims since desires can come on suddenly, but they’re likely to be fleeting. As the day advances, work done behind the scenes or efforts to handle a tricky emotional problem or situation can be in stronger focus. Intimate relationships can thrive. You might want or need to take action or make connections that enhance your life.
LibraThe Moon spends another day in your intimacy sector, dear Libra, and you’re more inclined than usual to take things to heart. You gravitate toward intensity in your activities, entertainment, or relationships. In the first half of the day, there can be some instability to manage. A bit of emotional space makes sense, as you can feel confined if you don’t have many options. Too many options, on the other hand, can keep you in a state of indecision. Be especially conscious of being fair and using common sense, as there can be a tendency to overdo. Enjoy yourself, but keep things real and avoid going over the top. As the day advances, it’s easier and more pleasurable to focus. Shared, focused activities with someone can be useful.
ScorpioChanges in routine can figure strongly in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, but it might also be due to restlessness. The Moon spends another day in your solar seventh house, and you’re more tuned into others’ perspectives. Someone special is inclined to appreciate your unusual and unique viewpoint. However, it’s also a time when it’s easier than usual to fall into the traps of procrastination. If you put too many options on the table now, you might end up spinning your wheels and going nowhere. As the day advances, your spirit and confidence increase. The desire to be productive strengthens and takes over. Work, health, and money matters can be special areas of focus. You might feel more committed to your goals.
SagittariusIt’s easier than usual to cooperate and enjoy others’ input today, dear Sagittarius. However, restlessness can lead to poor choices and perhaps purchases in the first half of the day. The tendency to overdo is strong. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to pick something and run with it. Your focus and concentration improve, and you could put some extra effort into pet projects, studies, or creative pursuits. You might revive an old interest or pastime. Nevertheless, the Moon spends another day in your sector of routines, work, health, and habits. This transit puts a practical spin on the day, and paying special attention to the details of your life makes sense at this time in the lunar month. You’re inclined to pay more mind to what’s out of place or not up to par, and you’re ready to solve problems.
CapricornThe Moon spends another day in your sector of play, drama, and entertainment, dear Capricorn. You’re a little bolder with love, pleasure, enjoyment, and tastes. The first half of the day can stir up some restlessness or question marks in a relationship. Some misunderstandings or lack of definition can disrupt your interactions. As the day advances, you’re more inclined to pour your energy into pet projects or dedication to family or domestic matters. You may find the motivation to solve a problem that’s been holding you back. It feels more natural to adapt to changes or to make them willingly. You’re in a more playful and possibly even buoyant mood.
AquariusThe Moon transits your home and family sector all day, dear Aquarius, and you continue to crave a gentle pace. Tomorrow will bring more energy for interaction, but today, you’re more inclined to want to heal, replenish, and build your strength. Your mood is good, and you can end up being reasonably productive despite some interference in the first half of the day. Discovering genuinely useful information with just a little digging is entirely possible. Especially as the day advances, you’re ready to devote some time to something worthwhile. Conversations can be meaningful, and it’s relatively straightforward to smooth over differences with others, if needed, or to pick up where you left off with people you care about. You’ll do best with a definite plan.
PiscesKeep in mind that judgment may be colored by wishful thinking in the first half of the day, dear Pisces, making it best to focus on confidence-boosting activities. Try not to put too much faith in a routine or schedule until later in the day. Your attention may be divided, and it’s probably best to wait out a better time for concentration. Later today, supportive energy flows related to business, work, health, and services. If you need to attend to a mistake or oversight, this is a good time to do so. Finding lost items or filling in the blanks in some significant way can benefit you now. The Moon transits your solar third house all day, and the need for movement, progress, and mental stimulation is strong. Interesting news can figure strongly.
