Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mercury currently in your partnership sector, dear Aries, you’re generally in good shape and perhaps have the upper hand in negotiations. Your curiosity about others and desire to communicate in your relationships are notable. However, Mercury is opposite Chiron today, and something communicated can play on your vulnerabilities. This can lead to a breakthrough in understanding if you’re open to learning about what emerges now. Even so, it can be tricky or messy. There can be a misunderstanding or clarification to make. You could feel criticized, even if others are not meaning to be pushy with you. You may want to take a step back from any emerging conflict that might occur now just so that you can react more mindfully.
TaurusThere is a tendency for you to feel unappreciated or slighted in spots today, dear Taurus. Things may feel in limbo or undecided, which can undermine some of your endeavors if you don’t nip it in the bud. The day may bring an uncomfortable revelation or extra sensitive emotions, particularly regarding work or workload. You have a hard time hearing what appears to be criticism now. Aim to deal with troubles as fearlessly as possible, but also with self-honesty for best results. You are especially sensitive to imbalances of almost any kind today, but particularly in your personal space. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and practical matters grab your attention. It may be worthwhile to spend some time on fixing practical problems.
GeminiYou can be especially sensitive to imbalances in your social or love life today, dear Gemini. It may be that something communicated touches a nerve or sets off your insecurities. It’s important to wait out coming to conclusions–reserve judgment, if possible. It’s also a good idea to examine what seems to be triggering vulnerable spots, as you stand to learn a lot about yourself through interactions with others and their reactions. While conversations can be tricky, and possibly even messy, they might also be long overdue and lead to greater understanding. The Moon spends the day in your sign, amplifying emotions and needs. It’s a good time to honor your feelings, but it’s best to avoid going over the top in so doing. Strive for balance today.
CancerToday’s Moon is in your privacy sector, dear Cancer, suggesting that carving out some personal time for yourself is particularly important. Rest, reflection, and refreshment are especially welcome at this time in the lunar month. Communications and thoughts or memories can open up old emotional issues and challenges, however, with Mercury opposite Chiron. Particularly if you’ve recently brushed aside some of your deeper feelings, you could feel blindsided by others’ comments. It’s not intuitive to interact in ways that help relationships grow, as we could be defensive if we feel judged. Even so, you’re also in a high position to learn from these matters, as they can point you in the direction of what is most in need of repair and healing.
LeoYou may need to back away from a problem temporarily to let our mind rest and your intuition to engage, dear Leo. Distractions can lead to a frustrating state of absent-mindedness otherwise. With Mercury opposite Chiron, there can be some touchiness. What you or a friend is interpreting from your communications can be heavily influenced by insecurities. You might receive a wake-up call about a project or idea that needs some more refinement before going forward, and this can certainly be helpful. It can be frustrating if others challenge your views or opinions. Even so, you might discover that you can learn something valuable from your differences.
VirgoIt may be a little difficult to count on others in spots today, dear Virgo. The day can hold some minor disappointing energy in the relationship department. You can be a bit sensitive, particularly if our ideas are challenged, as it can feel like criticism. Worries about money or complicated power dynamics in a relationship can be a soft spot, and there might be an eruption of feelings that are expressed poorly. However, whatever emerges now can lead to growth and better understanding. Even if a comment irritates, it may very well jumpstart some creative thinking, leading to new insights. Nevertheless, you may want to hold off on drawing definite conclusions until you’re more objective and less personally involved.
LibraA disconnect with someone or a feeling that you’re not especially appreciated can occur now, dear Libra. Keep in mind that wishful thinking can interfere with perceptions of value. The tendency to speak from the head instead of the heart or saying things too matter-of-factly can produce some challenges. Mercury is intelligent and intellectual, and it’s currently transiting your sign. As it opposes Chiron today, something you say can be misunderstood or taken the wrong way. You might appear critical or judgmental when you’re merely playing with ideas. Or, if you feel overwhelmed or burdened, you could too quickly jump to the wrong conclusions. Aim to learn from any differences or hurt feelings that might occur today. Even if you’re entirely right, others’ reactions can offer you a new way to see a matter. While there can be some doubts, the Moon’s harmony with your sign suggests the ability to rise above problems.
ScorpioThere may be a change of plans or confusing situations on a social level, dear Scorpio. It may be best to be a little more attentive and vigilant with your work or routines since small worries or fears could interfere with clear thinking today. If a misunderstanding occurs, try to resolve it quickly and honestly, rather than offering lengthy explanations. With Mercury opposite Chiron today, words and actions may be triggering, despite even our best efforts. You’re more comfortable observing and absorbing the happenings around you than contributing these days, which helps. You’re in good shape for contemplation and behind-the-scenes study or work. If buried resentments surface, consider it to be revealing so that you can work through the problems.
SagittariusThere can be some confusion or a bit of chaos in your schedule in spots today, dear Sagittarius. Feelings can be hurt relatively easily with words, and choosing them a little more carefully might save a few problems. With Mercury opposite Chiron, the tendency is for a disconnect between the emotions and intellect. Whether we’re overdoing the logic while ignoring emotional sensibilities, or the opposite, there can be some misunderstandings. If this can’t be avoided, it can turn into an opportunity to better understand yourself and others. The desire to harmonize is strong, and efforts to do so can be rewarding with the Moon in your partnership sector all day.
CapricornIt may be best to watch your words today with two transits active that can lead to misunderstandings, dear Capricorn. You could feel challenged about something close to your heart. Avoid a defensive reaction, even if someone touches a nerve. The best approach is to aim to understand why certain things make you feel uncomfortable and learn from differences. With Mercury opposite Chiron, misunderstandings are often about words triggering problem areas. It makes the most sense to get to the bottom of the matter rather than address the symptoms only. Try not to count on plans that appear to be a little too unrealistic. The Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, and the smaller problems in your life are more noticeable. It’s a good time to focus on fixing things.
AquariusYou may be wrestling with your perceptions or with distractions at times today, dear Aquarius. You are especially attracted to meaningful, unusual, or different topics with Mercury in your solar ninth house these days. While it’s a mostly breezy transit, energies are a bit tricky with communications today. There is some need for careful handling as Mercury opposes Chiron, and we can be more sensitive. A communication could challenge you or even seem hurtful. If you require more time to connect confidently with an opinion or idea, then take it. Differences are likely to be glaring just for now, but they can offer learning experiences. It’s an excellent time to see flaws and differences more clearly, opening up a chance to repair problem areas. The Moon spends the day in your joy sector, helping you see the light side of life.
PiscesWith Mercury currently transiting your solar eighth house, dear Pisces, it’s a generally good time to bring more common sense to finances or relationships. You tend to look more deeply into a matter before taking off with it. You are in observer mode. However, with Mercury opposite Chiron today, there can be some tendency to misunderstand one another. You may feel you’re walking on eggshells with people around you, and it’s easier to recognize the flaws in a situation than it is to see what’s working. The best way to manage this energy is to avoid picking sides or thinking in black-or-white terms. Considering individual truths is your best bet. If you’re tempted to use this time to get a matter off your chest, be aware that words can come out messily, or people take things the wrong way.
