Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your communications sector for a stay of over two days, dear Aries, and you’re craving more mental stimulation. You could find it difficult to juggle your interests and responsibilities without feeling a little overwhelmed or perhaps a little guilty. It may not be easy to concentrate on your work or projects with so much distracting you now. However, once you do commit yourself, there is excellent energy with you for making some significant progress. It’s a potentially strong day for bonding with others and getting to know yourself a little better in the process. There can be a nice win involving research, work, or finances now due to your stronger inclination and ability to investigate. You recognize significant patterns in your life that contribute to happiness and satisfaction.
TaurusThe Moon’s move out of your sign can settle your emotions, dear Taurus. You have more patience to play with today. Today and tomorrow are good for attending to your favorite personal possessions, taking care of business, or getting comfortable. While you might disagree with others about money or fundamental values in small ways today, some conflict can lead to a better understanding. As well, this is a good time to learn from one another’s differences. Positively discussing matters can improve a bond. You are in a good position to negotiate and compromise with all parties leaving feeling well cared for. Relationships improve with more focus, presence, and involvement.
GeminiYou are eager for growth and change today, dear Gemini. The Moon heads into your sign, and your emotional spirit is powerful. Going out of your comfort zone, just a little, increases your faith in yourself and the world. You might enjoy cooperating with others towards a common goal, and you instinctively know how to delegate fairly and make everyone feel happy to contribute. Organizing work or home affairs can be gratifying and successful. Your ability to get your work and chores done well is the key to a feeling of empowerment these days. Conditions are excellent for taking an honest look at your feelings, needs, and desires. Decisions improve as self-understanding increases, and with your ruler, Mercury, heading into opposition to Uranus, your best bet is to stay centered and learn what’s in your heart today.
CancerWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house today, dear Cancer, getting some time to yourself would be helpful. The Moon is approaching full circle relative to your sign, and it’s natural for you to need more time to reflect, meditate, and detox on an emotional level today and tomorrow. Nevertheless, you are in a good position to share your ideas and connect with others harmoniously. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback. It’s a strong time to learn something about yourself, a special person, or a project in your life. Pouring more love or attention into a communications or creative project can be very worth your while today. Today, you might see that being right isn’t always a priority–sometimes, you need to let others have their say.
LeoThe Moon heads into your solar eleventh house today, dear Leo, and connecting with others or your happiness goals and dreams can be in sharper focus. Your sense of community or your desire to interact openly and freely with others is strong. The connections you make these days tend to be with those who motivate you to be at your sharpest mentally or challenge you to grow. You might enjoy encouraging feedback for your work or talents. You might enjoy a nice boost to your sense of security, confidence, and comfort. Aim to gain a new understanding of your resources and abilities, as this knowledge empowers you. Pay due attention to any activities that strengthen your self-image.
VirgoYour work and productivity come into stronger focus today, dear Virgo. You become more aware of your reputation and how it impacts your life, and this can fuel the motivation to align your goals with your higher beliefs and principles. You want to feel you’ve accomplished something worthwhile. It can feel as if you’re doing too much juggling if you keep too many options open today. This is a potentially positive day for advancing your interests. Being diplomatic, getting along well with others, and seeking out mutual benefits in any negotiation are essential to the day’s rewarding energy. You may be able to cut a good deal with someone, make a satisfying connection, or you might enjoy a fruitful conversation. Be as patient as you possibly can be when it comes to following rules today.
LibraThe Moon moves into your solar ninth house today, dear Libra, and you are especially forward-looking today. Sound energy is with you for teaching and sharing, and you seem to need some space to be spontaneous. This can be a good time to honor your need for a change of pace so that you can return to your daily routines more refreshed and motivated. Otherwise, focusing on the positive and uplifting elements of your life can do the trick. You’re in good shape for discussions with people you care about. The key is to work with instead of against someone, and opening up to a point of view is satisfying. Diplomacy and cooperation come naturally to you, and they bring rewards today. You might also draw upon hunches and intuition to forward business and money-related ideas.
ScorpioThis is a time when you can be craving more intimacy or depth in your experiences, dear Scorpio, as the Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a couple of days. You prefer to scratch the surface more deeply, and activities that require more focus or attention can be a big draw. You’re seeking hidden answers and motivations, and the emphasis is on emotions, close ties, dreams, and your inner world. Even so, you’re in stronger demand these days, and it can be hard to juggle all that you want to do. Good energy is with you for feeling supported and getting along well with friends, and you might make mutually beneficial connections. You do well with a cause and a plan today.
SagittariusDull routines can be particularly difficult to bear today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s best to find ways to jazz things up. While you may not always agree with others, you’re likely to learn a lot from your interactions. The Moon heads into your partnership sector for over two days, and you’re more conciliatory and willing to see the other side of a story. Transits are good for getting to the core of a matter or for pairing up to come up with a great idea. Nevertheless, there can be some surprises today and tomorrow before you get to a comfortable perspective on a matter. It’s a powerful time for gaining new information that was previously hidden or simply not obvious to you. You might come up with fabulous business ideas or terrific strategies for long-term plans.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your sector of work and service for over two days, dear Capricorn, and your focus turns to getting organized. Good feelings come from being productive today. Cut yourself a little slack since the Moon’s square to Venus can distract you at times, but eventually buckling down can be quite satisfying right now. A comfortable pace can suite you best. While today can involve some divided attention or disagreement on plans, you’re likely to discover some especially inventive or positive ideas and attitudes through your interactions. Working with others cooperatively fares much better than competitive activities under current transits. Life is a little easier when you share today, so take advantage.
AquariusMechanical and mental work can thrive today, dear Aquarius. It’s a potentially excellent idea day, and your communications tend to be powerful. Although you may not be agreeing with others on several points, you’re certainly finding things to stimulate your mind. The Moon heads into your self-expressive solar fifth house where it will spend over two days. Romance, pleasure, pastimes, and social involvements are larger than life for you today. Feelings are pleasantly dramatic. Cooperating with others comes easily and helps you to gain an edge. You are especially wise today. Look to the talents and resources of a significant other to see if these can be of positive use in your life now.
PiscesThe Moon heads to the bottom of your solar chart today, dear Pisces, where it will transit for over two days. This influence reminds you of the benefits of connecting with your home base and feeding your desire for security and comfort. You gravitate toward activities that bring you comfort and a nice feeling of familiarity today. Even so, there can be significant interactions and a good social boost now. While there can be some minor ups and downs due to disagreements, sharing beliefs and ideas can be a bonding experience right now. Issues of equality in relationships can be in focus today, and your powers of negotiation are better than usual. You may be helping to build links between others. Your spirit to learn and improve is strong, and motivation may be a special person or relationship.
