Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Sun-Uranus trine encourages new approaches to your work or services and the making or handling of money, dear Aries. Problem-solving comes readily as you look at practical matters in a new light. A solution can come to you seemingly out of the blue, although it’s probably been with you in the past. You may not have been tuned in, and now you are! It’s a good day for researching health programs or regimes, as alternatives can enter the picture. While quiet times are right for you now, you have some very positive, forward-looking influences active, improving your outlook. Still, there can be frustrating elements in spots today if you’re attempting to push forward plans, mainly related to work or health, but there are powerful indicators that things are unblocking. The key is to be patient a little while longer. Mercury turns direct after over three weeks of retrograde motion, and routine matters tend to iron or smooth out. Information comes in that helps you make stronger choices and decisions. More clarity is on its way.
TaurusThe Sun in your solar fifth house harmonizes with Uranus in your sign, dear Taurus, and you radiate positivity. You could be altering how you approach others and your projects as you have your eye on making progress and improvements. You are especially attractive now, drawing others’ attention. You can feel exceptionally romantic or simply confident and expressive. There is quite a bit of energy to the day, as well as a strong sense that you can reach your goals. Romantically and creatively, you are in good form. The urge to make a splash or to take a risk is strong. You can be the bringer of surprise and change. Moves made now can be sudden, but intuitive. Still, Mercury changes direction and ends its retrograde cycle today. This shift can certainly help unclog information so that your choices and decisions are clearer in the days and weeks ahead. It’s time to come at problems from a new angle! Further information emerges, releasing energy to flow forward. You may be reconsidering a goal or dealing with something you overlooked to clear the path for moving on.
GeminiWith today’s Sun-Uranus trine, there can be a pleasant change of pace that reboots and energizes you, dear Gemini. You might consider new ways to improve your home life, which helps free you to pursue your goals. Even with this strong sense of moving forward and putting negative elements of the past behind you, it’s also a good time for exploring the past and how it affects you in the present. As such, it makes sense to examine matters but avoid dwelling. Think up new ways to enjoy family and your home life. Your planetary ruler, Mercury, stations and turns direct today, and while this change of direction brings less indecision as you advance, today can be a little confusing. There can be improved communications and more information that helps you move on. Over the coming days and weeks, you’ll find life a little easier to navigate as projects or appointments begin to move forward, and motivation increases. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Keep things simple for the best results, and take your time!
CancerInteractions can be especially progressive, enthusiastic, and spirited today, dear Cancer. Opportunities can come from or through friends, groups, meetings, and communications. It’s easy to keep an open mind, identify opportunities, and discover new interests. You are extraordinarily inventive and unafraid to show others your unique qualities. You and others are more willing to entertain unusual ideas right now. Exploring different ways of relating and communicating can be satisfying. With Mercury’s station today, an emotional recharge or taking a light schedule can be ideal. Mercury turns direct after a retrograde phase for over three weeks. It’s good news, but because it’s a shift of direction, there can be some temporary disorientation. But while it’s best not to jump into action, new launches, or major decisions, you’ll enjoy some forward motion on delayed projects in the coming days and weeks.
LeoYour money position and self-worth are in high focus, dear Leo, and yesterday’s New Moon has brought new-beginning energy to these themes. Today, you think like a pioneer along financial, security, and domestic lines as you have a strong sense that you can make positive changes. An opportunity might arise that helps you break free from restrictive circumstances, laying the groundwork for new beginnings and eventually leading to more freedom. You might upgrade technology or stumble upon an item that helps you improve efficiency. Finding yourself on the same page with a significant person in your life can be satisfying. Ideas are fabulous now, but ease yourself into launches. While the end of Mercury’s retrograde today can be a relief, there can be a bit of chaos or some misunderstandings today as the shift occurs. In the days ahead, clearer communications are likely, information comes through, or previously delayed initiatives move forward. With Mercury’s current transit of your solar second house, this can be about money, personal possessions, or business. You’ll feel better equipped to move your plans ahead and make informed decisions.
VirgoYou’re drawing on the courage to assert your independence, dear Virgo, and you may solve a problem or two, whether for yourself or others. Others admire you for your originality and unique perspective. Non-routine activities and new ideas can figure prominently. Communication projects, learning, and transportation are areas of growth. Indeed, you are more spirited and open to change and progress than usual, and this theme will stick with you in the upcoming month. On this day after a New Moon in your sign, aim to ease into things, but ride on this forward-looking energy now. Another reason to see things as moving along: Mercury turns direct in your sign after retrograde motion for over three weeks. This change of direction can help release blocks or delays. The shift itself occurring now can be confusing, so take your time. In the coming days, you’ll benefit from a more straightforward approach to life, but observe and process before jumping into decisions. Ease into moving your plans ahead for best results.
LibraYour inner world is animated now, dear Libra, and you could have a strong sense that it’s time to make significant emotional or spiritual changes. As it often is these days, your attention turns to behind the scenes. You’re inclined to search within for answers. You can have sudden insights into your behavior or that of others today, although you may not be as quick to share them as you are in an exceptionally private frame of mind. An open mind is key right now, and you could feel quite happy with discoveries, even if you’re keeping to yourself temporarily. Surprises and opportunities can come out of the blue, and an element/person of your past reappearing can be part of this. Mercury stations direct after over three weeks of retrograde motion, and you’ll have many opportunities to improve conditions as you advance. With today’s shift, it may be wise to choose your words and your battles wisely. Soon enough, you’ll see forward movement on delayed projects. Word comes through that helps you make decisions and ends a state of limbo.
ScorpioYour social life can be quite animated, dear Scorpio, and things are looking up. For one, the Sun and Uranus form a trine, opening you to possibilities related to a partner, special dream, or friend. Outworn attitudes have to go, and events occurring now emphasize this fact. On this day after a New Moon, relationships are gearing up to animate, and exciting changes are on the horizon, including improvement in a friendship, group endeavor, or community project. For another, Mercury ends its retrograde cycle, which should put an end to delays or a state of limbo in the days ahead. Remember, however, that communications can remain confusing as Mercury changes direction, perhaps even more so. It’s not an ideal time to bring up sensitive topics just for the time being, as misunderstandings can be frustrating, and in some cases, wholly unnecessary. However, you’ll be seeing some forward movement in relationships or pursuits that have recently suffered from delays or blocks. Tricky problems and indecisiveness should clear as you advance. Mercury’s forward turn in your social sector promises more clarity and understanding with friends.
SagittariusToday is good for innovative ideas or methods, dear Sagittarius, and a strong sense that you’re about to move forward. Some emotional detachment helps you move past limitations and break free from dwelling on specific issues from the past. For you, this relates mainly to practical matters and health. New developments in your career path or a work project can emerge, and they spell progress! Pleasant surprises are likely now. It’s a fine time to think about getting rid of unhealthy habits. Today, it makes sense to tap into this energy, but pace yourself. Mercury turns direct after more than three weeks of retrograde motion. While this means an imminent clearing of obstacles and delays, the day can be confusing until you get your bearings. However, projects might unblock in the days ahead, and delays lift. You might see work projects advance and communications open up, particularly with associates and bosses, parents, or managers. You’ll begin to feel the fog lifting, and you’re likely to be more precise about your goals.
CapricornYou’re now lobbying for a better balance between things you need to do to keep your life in order, dear Capricorn, and those things that feed your spirit and take you away from the daily grind. A Sun-Uranus trine encourages you to find inspiration. You can be in the mood to learn, teach, or expand your understanding of a matter. Connecting with people through different beliefs or interests can be satisfying. You might express yourself creatively and push yourself beyond fear for beautiful results. You might get the chance to put your talents to use or even show them off a little. You may need to deal with communication or transportation breakdowns today, but while these things have been more frequent in the past three weeks, most problems will begin to clear up shortly. There can be a real sense of moving forward, but you must correct past mistakes and omissions to clear the path. Be a little more mindful of communications, as misunderstandings are likely with Mercury at its station today. Information comes through that helps decision-making. A turnaround is likely for some of your projects, particularly publishing, sharing, legal, or educational matters.
AquariusToday’s Sun-Uranus transit is exciting and suggests there’s a lot to learn, dear Aquarius, particularly about your motivations and desires. Opportunities for setting things right with money or with the deeper dynamics in a relationship are on their way, and you can get a hint of this now. Matters of the heart can thrive, and it’s a good idea to take the time to enjoy the vibes. There can be pleasant surprises related to home and family, and problem-solving about emotional or domestic matters can be in focus and positive. You are well-positioned to explore new approaches to old problems and family relationships. This is unlikely to be an ordinary or routine day, and you might become inspired to redecorate or change things up with nice results. Problem-solving about emotional issues improves. Transits help you detach yourself from a problem just enough to develop innovative solutions. Nevertheless, there can be some confusion or misunderstood communications today as Mercury changes direction. Mercury’s direct motion helps financial and intimate matters gain clarity or move forward. It can also help clear recent blocks and slowdowns. You’ll be in good shape for negotiating about money or time-sharing in the coming days and weeks. Today, be more mindful of directions and communications.
PiscesToday’s Sun-Uranus transit is optimistic and forward-looking, dear Pisces, and it helps you tap into the energy of yesterday’s New Moon. There can be progress brewing in a partnership or communications project. You’re likely to open up and encourage others to do so! Inventive thinking and novel approaches are in focus–you’re considering new ways to approach relating and communicating. You’re in especially great shape to look at old problems in fresh ways. Happily, partnering up can help you find solutions. Your willingness to approach matters with openness and honesty makes a big difference. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be in great shape for creative enterprise and collaboration. You’ll find new courage to be who you are and to pursue who and what you want. Also today, Mercury is shifting direction after over three weeks of retrograde motion. While it helps clear information clogs, the shift can demand some reorienting today. Look forward to increased clarity, particularly in your relationships, as Mercury slowly regains its regular speed, and you feel more confident about making the right decisions. For now, take special care in your interactions with others and consider that you may be missing important details. Don’t jump too quickly into action just yet! Instead, allow new information to trickle in.
