Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour mind has some tendency to dwell on problem areas today, dear Aries, but after nursing your fears, you can draw upon all sorts of motivation to move on. There can be some restlessness to combat, but the important thing is that you are looking forward and discovering ways to make improvements. Confronting a problem, rather than sidestepping it, can be your best bet. Keeping your options open can invite positive, interesting experiences, but it’s also important to honor your need for relaxation. A talk about what you value can be strengthening and even surprising as you find yourself on the same page as someone special.
TaurusWith the Moon in your solar tenth house again today, dear Taurus, you pay more attention to your life goals and general direction. Responsibilities tend to magnify. This can be a good time to fulfill duties or enjoy the rewards of recent accomplishments, even with a possibly disappointing or demotivating speed bump. Fortunately, you have a good sense for business and leadership. As well, it’s a fine time to successfully combine logic and creativity. Today is wonderful for finding a little more meaning in your work or routine, as you may be solving problems or helping others, and it feels good to do so. Consider that if you have too much on your plate, you may end up feeling quite hemmed in or restless. With moderation, today’s energies can be highly creative.
GeminiYou may get some help today and possibly some wisdom, dear Gemini, from a person from your past or an epiphany about a long-term dilemma. There can be some frustration if you are still holding on to something in the past, however, but a large part of you wants to break free and move forward. There can be times when you are not aware of it and act out, stirring up a little bit of trouble as if to force change, and this can be one of those days! However, you might get in touch with the side of you that knows that breaking from complex attachments to the past is your next step. Ideas are not fully formed yet, but worthy of your attention. Transits stir you to explore and discover today. Different settings or experiences can be most refreshing, although part of you can resist the urge to do something new. Aim to honor both your desire for a predictable pace and your need for a little more stimulation.
CancerYou are more inclined to observe than to act, which can serve you well right now, dear Cancer. There may be a conflict regarding values, money, ownership matters, or worries about your financial state. Hurt feelings are a strong tendency right now. Aim to brush things up in your work or with your practical affairs rather than forge ahead if you’re not confident, and listen to your intuition rather than your fears. Watch for rushing a financial or intimate matter. Fortunately, today is strong for relationships with family and friends. You might solve a tricky problem.
LeoPart of you wants to wipe the slate clean, and another part seems stuck on something that’s keeping you from doing so today, dear Leo. You’re likely to turn this energy around by working on strategies and plans to improve your projects, mindset, and life. This way, you won’t need to forge ahead until you’re genuinely ready to, but you’re also focusing on the positive. Conversations can help tremendously right now, but getting in touch with what’s in your heart requires some quiet and stillness. With different needs and drives competing for your attention, it’s not the best time for decision-making. However, you’re focusing on moving on and improving, and with this attitude, you can put problems behind you today.
VirgoThere can be some tension surrounding issues of basic values, money, and sharing today, dear Virgo. Aim to handle them before they blow out of proportion. A to-do list might help you feel more in control and minimize problems that come from feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to begin. You need a change on a mental level — something fresh to think about or a new interest or learning challenge to excite you. Try not to stir up trouble for yourself if you can’t find one! Sharing ideas with a close friend or partner can be stimulating. Expressing yourself with intention and enthusiasm can help cut through the fluff.
LibraYou’re thinking more creatively today, dear Libra, helping you detach yourself from situations just enough to truly enjoy where your mind is taking you. Others can find you especially shrewd. You seem to expect success, which helps you find special meaning to whatever you are doing now. There can be disagreements about values or concepts of love, and it’s best to do what makes you feel good from the inside out. If you are feeling overwhelmed, take steps to bring more balance to your life and ask for help. Today’s Moon reminds you of the need for light entertainment and fun.
ScorpioInteractions can be somewhat strained in spots today, dear Scorpio, as people can find it generally challenging to come out with what they really want. A close friend or partner may be hard to understand at the moment. There can be tension or fear that new responsibilities will consume your days. However, you can be increasingly determined to move forward, and it’s best done by no longer dwelling on what’s not working in your life. Once you have this mindset, new ideas and plans can energize you. Nevertheless, the Moon in your solar fourth house all day encourages a reflective frame of mind. A hiatus can be refreshing. Centering yourself now may be necessary to share yourself more freely and happily with others later.
SagittariusYou have self-improvement and progress on your mind today, dear Sagittarius. There can be exciting ideas and insights forming now, particularly about relationships and career or life path plans. Hopefulness about what the future might bring feels lovely now. Still, there can be some issues that stir up feelings of anxiety. Today’s energies are less than ideal for agreements or balance. However, with a few adjustments, you’re likely to feel more confident. With the Moon in your solar third house all day, it’s a time for enjoying some variety or following your curiosity. While it may not be the best day for concentration, you can be productive if you put your mind to it.
CapricornMore and more, you’re focusing on progress rather than the past, dear Capricorn. You could be coming up with some genuinely fresh and exciting ideas, mainly related to publishing, education, promotion, or your work. You may need to wrestle with irritability or a sense that others are not necessarily getting the gist of your ideas. You seem to come up with the best ideas independently and by going against the grain today. You could be torn between wanting to collaborate and sticking with what’s most comfortable and secure today. If you can manage it, a compromise makes sense. Generally, it’s a good idea to regroup or take time for the things that truly matter with the Moon in your solar second house.
AquariusYou can feel a strong desire to do something different, new, and possibly something that breaks through a barrier or forces a change, dear Aquarius. There may be a surprise reveal, or you could surprise yourself by divulging information you kept to yourself up until now. Perhaps a mischievous part of you wants to put the past behind you. You tend to allow your emotions to lead you with the Moon in your sign all day. It can nevertheless be challenging to integrate your desire for personal independence and your need to attend to duties around the home or for loved ones. Still, there are other ways to express yourself today, and creative feelings are easy to tap.
PiscesYou’re experiencing a burning desire to look to the future, dear Pisces, but the Moon spends another day in your solar twelfth house, and you’re not quite ready to push ahead. If you’re confronted with the same old routine, you might be a little disruptive or mischievous with what you say and do, perhaps in an attempt to bring about some change. Still, you could come up with a great new idea together with a partner or close friend today and tomorrow. It’s a good time to get to the bottom of a problem through conversation and research. You can be inspired by a new idea or perspective. Still, it’s best to take extra breaks or rest periods. The Moon spends the day in the background of your solar chart, and its good connection with Mars in your home and family sector boosts your motivation to tap into your deeper needs and feelings.
