Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sector of creativity, joy, and romance, dear Aries, and you more readily find the inspiration to share your ideas and creations.

The New Moon on the 17th will help fuel new beginnings. Efforts to organize, tidy, edit, review, and reform or reuse are all favored today and in the meantime. This is not the ideal time to take on more, but is excellent for improving, restoring, and tweaking work in progress. Plans and strategies are attractive right now. While much of the time you enjoy living life spontaneously, right now, you’d do well to observe, plan, and design.
TaurusWith the Moon in your home and family sector all day, you gravitate toward quiet, easy-going activities, dear Taurus. You may very well want to avoid complications. However, today’s Sun-Pluto trine can serve as a call to action, or it can put you in the position to take the lead and support someone on a moral or intellectual level. Your desire to grow is strong and motivating. You instinctively recognize that you won’t have learning opportunities if you stick only with what’s familiar. You can be determined to connect more deeply with personal interests, hobbies, and possibly even a person. People or ideas emerging now have you looking at the world in new and exciting ways.

A Sun-Pluto trine is empowering, particularly with the Sun in your sign and Pluto encouraging you to grow and improve through sharing and expressing yourself. This transit can encourage you to go deep into a particular project, relationship, or endeavor. Your resourcefulness helps you turn something old into something new, or turn a negative into a positive.

SagittariusThe Moon in your adventure sector all day sets your sights high, dear Sagittarius. Today’s energies aren’t particularly breezy, but they’re handy, as a Sun-Pluto aspect helps you focus. The ordinary is not very appealing right now. Practical affairs can benefit as you recognize where you’ve been frivolous or wasteful, and where you might redirect your energy for the most benefit.

CapricornToday’s Sun-Pluto trine is an excellent aspect for making lasting changes, dear Capricorn, that refresh your life and go deep, such as getting rid of bad habits, situations, and attitudes. These days, the Sun in your spirit sector is a cosmic push to branch out and learn new things.

You can be especially passionate about what you believe in, and very convincing and persuasive with others, particularly in writing. Others appreciate your perspective, intelligence, and advice.

AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Aquarius, and you’re in a social frame of mind. While it’s a lighthearted influence, you have good energy with you for getting to the bottom of a personal or intimate matter. A Sun-Pluto aspect encourages you to grow, improve, and prioritize.

Better relationships can be a powerful motivator for self-improvement. Counseling, organizing, negotiating, and networking can be in focus.
