Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon moves into the sign just behind yours today, dear Aries, and getting some extra time for emotional healing and renewal can do wonders for you today and tomorrow. We’re heading toward a Full Moon that helps you recognize these needs. A Venus-Saturn aspect can challenge you to firm up your plans while also taking care of spiritual needs. Circumstances might remind you that while home and family life tend to be where your heart is at the moment, you need to take care of business as well. Responsibilities or problems that have been neglected or overlooked in the past have a way of surfacing for immediate attention. Aim to stick with your priorities and avoid worrying too much about what others think. Even so, sometimes criticisms can lead to important improvements, so don’t shut them out altogether. A balance is important now, but if people criticize more than support, aim to make yourself happy first and foremost. Stick with your priorities, but be honest with yourself about what may need revision.
TaurusThe Moon’s moves into your social sector today, dear Taurus, and you’re inclined to consider your higher goals or happiness pursuits today and tomorrow. A Full Moon is about to occur in this same sector, and it can awaken you to the need to contribute or participate. There may be some tension revolving around a project or plans that encounter delays or setbacks, or the frustration may have to do with news or criticism. A Venus-Saturn opposition lies across your communications and transportation axis, calling your attention to a delay or the need to make a change or revision that consumes your time. A useful strategy is to pay more attention to the details of your pursuits or to do your homework, and get the job done while avoiding others’ unhelpful opinions. It’s no small feat, but prioritizing is best. Be a little more careful of what you communicate today. It’s also important to note that others are more sensitive to limits than usual.
GeminiYou might enjoy a new subject or research a topic more deeply now, dear Gemini. Attempts to resolve tricky issues through conversation can be quite successful early today. However, as the day advances, Venus heads toward an opposition to Saturn, and you could encounter a block. There can be a realization or responsibility that temporarily puts a damper on your plans or spirits. There could be a disagreement about money or resources, or you might feel blocked or opposed by limits to your freedom to seek pleasure, make a purchase, or pursue a particular goal. If an epiphany comes now, look at your discovery from a practical angle, and detach as much as possible. It may be better to know where you stand than to nurse an illusion that will eventually expose itself as unreal. We’re also heading toward a Full Moon that heightens your feelings, particularly surrounding your life path. It’s another indication that your responsibilities are calling.
CancerThe Moon heads into your spirit sector, dear Cancer, encouraging you to relax and decompress. A breath of fresh air is vital for your emotional well-being. We’re heading toward a Full Moon in the same area of your solar chart, challenging you to discover your true feelings about a matter. It generates much mental energy, but focusing it may not be easy. Venus is heading into opposition with Saturn, and you might feel blocked or limited or reminded of responsibilities that get in the way of your personal goals. You might view someone in your life as unnecessarily strict or unyielding. Recognize your own need for structure and rules in your relationships, and meet others halfway for best results now. If duty and pleasure seem to be at odds, you may need to strike a compromise. You could experience a setback, delay, or responsibility that keeps you from pursuing what you want. Compromise and objectivity are both especially important now in your dealings with others.
LeoThe Moon’s move into your intimacy sector today inclines you to more introspection than usual for a couple of days, dear Leo. A Full Moon is about to occur in this same area of your solar chart, pointing to a possible turning point or realization surrounding financial, ownership, intimate, or sharing and trust matters. There’s also some tension in your solar chart along your health and wellness axis, and it reminds you of the need to attend to duties and responsibilities. This can temporarily deflate or demotivate you. You might be encountering inhibitions or coolness in others, but avoid taking it too personally. Criticism is possible and likely over the top, but if it’s even a fraction true, it can lead to meaningful improvements. Priorities make themselves clear today. A project can become more demanding, but you’ll put the extra effort forth if it’s worth your time. Restructuring may be in order.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your solar seventh house for a couple of days, dear Virgo, and it’s a good time to lean on someone or put more energy and heart into your relationships. This can also be a time of the month for some wheeling and dealing. A Full Moon is about to occur in this same area of your solar chart, and important relationship epiphanies can emerge. Your personality and personal plans are in the spotlight these days. Now your attention draws to a new perspective. This can help balance things out, although you could feel temporarily drained or overwhelmed. All things mental and creative seem to be a “go” early today. Still, as the day advances, we move towards a Venus-Saturn opposition, and you may find it challenging to juggle your responsibilities and desires. There can be conflicting feelings related to your social or love life. Try not to focus too much on whether someone is letting you down. Instead, give your responsibilities and duties their due attention to later pursue your pleasures with less guilt or distraction.
LibraThe Moon moves into your sector of work, routines, and self-care for a couple of days, dear Libra. With a Full Moon about to occur in this same area of your solar chart, you’re coming to a greater awareness of what you want and need to do. However, there’s also a hurdle to clear. Responsibilities to your daily affairs, errands, and other duties and tasks can increase or make themselves known, slowing you down or possibly even discouraging you. There could be discouraging feedback or a delay but keep in mind that as irritating as these may be, they might also motivate you to improve. You may need to put in extra work to get your duties out of the way, but you’ll be in a much better place once you do. You’ll feel better once you do take care of your priorities, after which you can return to your pleasures and pursue them more heartily.
ScorpioThe Moon moves into harmony with your sign for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, and you pay more attention to creating, sharing, and enjoying yourself. If you need help reorienting yourself, an upcoming Full Moon can force the issue. You might see a friendship, romance, or endeavor in a new light. Life changes as a result. With Venus, your partnership ruler, about to oppose restrictive Saturn, you could be dealing with critical or insensitive people. There can be a disagreement, a seemingly unfavorable outcome, or a delay. Responsibilities to your daily affairs, errands, and other duties and tasks can increase or make themselves known. Watch for fixating on something you think you want but then discover that it’s not the answer to your questions. Attention should be on fixing problems so that you can move on.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your solar fourth house for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius. Family activities, home life, and your need for comfort and familiarity assume more importance. We’re heading toward a Full Moon in this same sector, and feelings that you’ve been holding at bay or haven’t yet acknowledged are impossible to ignore. With Venus about to oppose Saturn across your sharing sectors, a financial constraint or disagreement may emerge. Keep in mind that the extra work you put into fixing mistakes can make a big difference when it comes to future success. Fears about money or security can be triggered, but facing a reality and adapting to it can improve your life. Don’t let delays discourage you, as they often come at important times. An obligation, debt, or error may need your attention and can be frustrating, but fixing it can do much for future successes.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your solar third house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, and you’re likely to be busy, although not especially focused. The goal of this brief Moon transit is to put your feelers out and collect information rather than specialize just for now. We’re heading toward a Full Moon in this same sector, and there can be meaningful discoveries, ideas, and changes in your mindset or attitude. Watch for impulsive communications but give weight to your feelings. With Venus about to oppose Saturn, your stronger need for companionship or connection with others may clash with a tendency to go it alone or handle problem areas your own way. Someone may seem too carefree as you take on all the burdens and responsibilities. People may be getting in your way or demanding attention that you’d rather direct towards more practical tasks. Try not to take yourself too seriously today, but do get the space you need to attend to your duties.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your solar second house for a couple of days, dear Aquarius, encouraging a focus on practical matters. We’re building toward a Full Moon in this same sector, and you can be reaching a turning point or realization related to money or resources. As the day advances, a Venus-Saturn aspect comes into play and suggests a reality check. If your heart isn’t in what you’re doing, you can feel under the weather. Mental and physical health are linked, but especially so right now, and quite possibly in a disruptive way. Delays might temporarily pull you away from the things you enjoy most doing. Past mistakes or unfinished business can surface, and handling a duty may be necessary before moving on. Recognize the need to let something go or to make changes in existing projects if it helps you go forward lighter and happier.
PiscesThe Moon enters your sign today, dear Pisces, bringing your emotions out of hiding and into the light. Your craving for a feeling of connectedness with others does leave you a little more emotionally vulnerable than usual, but you’re also braver about going after what you want. We’re heading toward a Full Moon in your sign, heightening emotions further. Still, a Venus-Saturn aspect can serve to highlight tensions or relationship problems. As excited as you may be about a creative or romantic pursuit these days, responsibilities or delays can enter the picture, which can be time-consuming. If there are criticisms to deal with, these can be frustrating, but they might also lead to efforts to firm things up. You may only need to get practical matters out of the way before getting back into the game. A building sense of feeling freer after you turn a corner can guide you now. Aim to examine burdens or fears that prevent you from loosening up.
