Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends all day in your partnership sector, dear Aries, and feedback allows you to see your life through the eyes of another. With the Moon’s meeting with Mars today, connections are energetic and animated. You may seek to feel vital and alive through your experiences, or someone is integral in encouraging and egging you on. The need for others becomes more apparent, perhaps prompting you to seek an opinion or connection. One-on-one relationships can be lively or colorful. You especially enjoy being active with someone, or you gain the motivation to pursue a special activity due to new relationship goals.
TaurusWith Mars in your solar sixth house these days, you bring more energy or initiative to your work or daily routines, dear Taurus, and you might discover new or better approaches or methods of getting things done. Productivity increases when you’re enjoying what you are doing, and this is especially evident today as the Moon meets Mars in this same area of your solar chart. Getting things done helps free up your mind. Avoid doing things impatiently, but do tap into your enthusiasm and passion. You may have more on your plate, but you’re also more motivated and confident. With Venus and Jupiter about to form a square, the tendency may be to overdo things, and it’s better to pace yourself.
GeminiWith the Moon and Mars meeting in your sector of joy today, dear Gemini, you’re in the mood to create, interact, and enjoy yourself. Your desires are more adamant than usual, or you may even connect with new ones altogether, and you can be pretty passionate and motivated. Today is strong for creative and romantic energy, and you might take a more forthright, direct, and go-getting approach to your day. There can be added sizzle in a love relationship or excitement about a pursuit or project. You tend to want to take the lead in whatever you’re doing, and some friendly competition can be motivating.
CancerYou’re especially motivated to take care of things or take charge around the home, dear Cancer, or there’s more attention to your inner world. The Moon meets Mars in your solar fourth house, and you might be motivated to resolve a personal problem. This transit can also bring fresh spirit and energy to your domestic life and excitement to your feelings. Previously frustrating situations might benefit from a direct approach. You have less patience for complexities now! Whatever endeavor you choose, you tend to be going at full speed. The need for action is stirred, although you may not know precisely where to direct excess energy. Once you do figure out a productive channel for it all, you can move mountains.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, meeting Mars there, dear Leo, and you feel a stronger need to connect and interact with the world around you. You’re talkative and approachable, yet also self-motivated and independent. There can be exciting discoveries with studies or mental interests today. If you can set your own pace, you’ll be in good shape because you are a few paces ahead of the people around you. There can be refreshing honesty and openness in your communications, although there can also be some impatience or brusqueness with this transit. Something that’s said today could get you going. The other side of this is enthusiasm, and events or news now can excite your curiosity.
VirgoYou can experience increased energy and activity with finances or practical matters today, dear Virgo, with the Moon and Mars joining forces in your solar second house. This transit may very well energize a brewing matter related to making money or, on an emotional level, respect! It can fuel your enthusiasm for making yourself more secure and comfortable. Focusing on using your current resources to their utmost can benefit you greatly now. Another side of this influence is a sudden or unusual desire, whim, or attraction. For best results, draw upon the courage of Mars but avoid impulsiveness. Note that Venus and Jupiter are heading toward a tense aspect, and while it can be an optimistic influence, there is some tendency to go too far with it. Moderation and pacing yourself may be better now.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your sign, aligning with Mars and exciting your emotions, dear Libra. This energy is of the pioneering variety, and you can find that your initiative and courage are particularly strong. If you can pick something and focus on it, you’re likely to find much to enjoy. You have an electric, exciting aura around you at this time. Self-directed activities fare best, even though cooperation comes easily as well today, but do watch for impatience. Emotional energy runs very high today, which makes you more vibrant and noticeable. With Venus and Jupiter heading toward a square aspect, it’s a good idea to tone things down, as this aspect can convince you to go over the top.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Scorpio, drawing your attention to your inner world or the background part of your life. You want, and perhaps need, to regroup. Still, the Moon meets with Mars, animating your private life, and discoveries you make about your feelings or even past matters can be exciting and motivating. Whether you want to reconnect with your past or break free from it, it’s a powerful drive. Instead, previously buried anger or desires can emerge. With Mars still transiting the sign behind yours, this generally isn’t a very overtly active or visible time for you, but it’s a good cycle for reorienting yourself.
SagittariusToday’s energies are mostly cooperative, dear Sagittarius, although the tendency may be to go over the top or to react quickly. Today’s Moon-Mars connection helps you get in touch with some deeper feelings or needs, but there’s a warning attached to this aspect: they can emerge abruptly! Ultimately, you’ll likely find that learning what you want will help you make better decisions. Your social life is more colorful today, and you’re more interested in it or emotionally involved than usual. Friends or networks stir up strong feelings. You’re also more inclined to pour more energy and feeling into your long-term plans and happiness goals.
CapricornMars, still transiting your sector of career, energizes your desire to reach your goals, dear Capricorn. Today, the Moon joins Mars, bringing your emotions into the picture, and you’re bringing more heart to your responsibilities, career, or life path goals. You’ll likely feel strongly about handling your priorities today. Formulating new goals could also be highly motivating now. This transit can fill you with courage or encourage solo or pioneering efforts. Conversations can also be lively and stimulating, as well as refreshingly open. You can be pleasantly productive today, and a stronger sense of purpose and direction is building.
AquariusMars, still transiting your spirit sector, encourages you to explore new ideas and activities, dear Aquarius. The Moon spends the day in the same sector of your solar chart, aligning with Mars, and further encouraging your desire to feed your spirit. Ideas and beliefs excite you. A new topic of interest, an exciting viewpoint, or an animated discussion can be motivating, capturing your attention. You can easily become fired up by an issue or excited about a venture, and pushing some boundaries can be helpful. As long as you watch for impatience, this can be a rewarding boost. It’s certainly a time when you crave a connection or mission through what you do, experience, and learn.
PiscesMars continues its transit of your solar eighth house, dear Pisces, digging up all sorts of buried desires, and sometimes resentment, anger, or frustration. Today, the Moon travels through the same sector of your solar chart and meets Mars there. With this brief but energizing alignment, you can connect with a strong desire or drive. If you feel that energies are bursting at their seams, you might choose to pour extra attention into a pet project, interest, or exciting research. It’s a fine time to make things happen with finances or intimacy, or to investigate a matter more deeply or courageously. New ideas and discoveries about your inner world can figure strongly. You’re particularly resourceful right now.
