Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Aries, serving to awaken your desire/need to contribute in some manner. It’s a good time of the lunar cycle for connecting with your dreams, hopes, and happiness goals. Unfinished business can weigh you down somewhat as the day advances and we approach a Mercury-Neptune minor challenge. There can be some inner unrest or vague tensions related to matters that you’ve been avoiding. It may be that conflicting options are on the table, and indecision sets in. Conversations and interactions can be pleasant but insubstantial. It may be best to take a time-out from heavy thinking and consider ways to handle the matters that have you feeling uncertain. It may be that you need more time to intuit your next move.
TaurusWith the Moon in your solar tenth house all day, dear Taurus, you may be thinking about or assessing life goals and general direction. Responsibilities tend to magnify. As the day advances, you may need to settle with not knowing all the details as much as you’d prefer to sort something out. There can be a slight and temporary dip in confidence about recent decisions and choices. However, this is only part of the natural ebb and flow, and you might treat it as a signal to slow down and make adjustments or break from overthinking things for a moment. Distractions can be your attention to your social life or ambiguities with others. If your heart’s not entirely in something, you might tend to procrastinate. Keep in mind that negotiations can be tough today, as there is information that is not yet known or that’s easy to overlook.
GeminiThere could be a chance to pursue a special interest, dear Gemini, releasing you from intense feelings, or there can be an opportunity to enjoy a change of scenery. You may need to accept some ambiguities and wait out a decision later today. Neptune under minor strain in your career sector can point to uncertainties related to your general life direction or responsibilities. Duties can interfere with your mood or focus. Satisfying decisions can be hard to come by with unfinished business at the back of your mind. You’d do best to avoid revealing something private or speaking too soon. Remind yourself that swinging from overly logical to overly fantastical ideas of a person or situation is unproductive. Similarly, if you’re paying too much attention to details and neglecting to let your intuition guide you, you won’t arrive at valuable conclusions. Aim to make some peace with uncertainty and have faith that things will fill in when you need answers.
CancerWith the Moon in your solar eighth house all day, dear Cancer, it’s a time to allow yourself to truly feel your feelings, not to detach yourself from them. You might see more layers to a situation or relationship. As the day progresses, you may have trouble concentrating on facts and figures, finding that your mind wanders too easily. Plans may not work out to the letter, although sidetracking may very well lead to new ideas. Feelings of restlessness can be prominent for the time being with a minor challenging aspect between Mercury and Neptune. You may not be sure whether you want to stick with what’s safe or branch out and do something entirely new. While you seek a little more meaning from life than usual, you could feel in limbo. You can’t force inspiration–you need to let it come to you naturally–and stepping back from a problem can help.
LeoYou’re more interactive today, dear Leo, with the Moon in your partnership sector all day. Even though you can be in the mood to fact-find, connect, and learn, a decision may not be clear-cut as the day advances. You could be swinging from fact-finding and daydreaming, making getting the complete picture of a situation a real challenge. You may need to wait for a time when your intuition and mind are working together harmoniously, if possible. It’s certainly a time for weighing pros and cons, making adjustments and concessions, and generally attempting to find balance. However, try to enjoy the process rather than focus on the absolute answer.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Virgo, and you more intently focus on the practical things or your daily affairs. With this transit, you are more inclined to make adjustments than to forge ahead with plans. This inclination is perhaps a good thing with Mercury and Neptune heading into a minor challenging aspect. As the day advances, you can have problems concentrating, whether due to more distractions or because you’re more distractable. Don’t fret too much about it since being temporarily out of sync can have the effect of redirecting you out of a rut and into an interesting new direction. If you can’t seem to get a conversation in sync, try not to take it personally, as it’s likely just a hiccup. Allow inspiration to come to you rather than try to force it.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Libra, which can be emotionally freeing in some ways. It’s easier for events and situations to stir your affections. As the day advances, something can be missing from your observations with a minor challenging aspect between Mercury and Neptune. With this transit, the tendency is to approach a situation either too rationally or with too much imagination. It’s temporary, of course, but it would be a good idea to avoid hard and fast decisions or commitments. Vague physical and emotional complaints or disorganization are possible. Watch for worrying over the tiniest things, which leads to restlessness and irritability.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, dear Scorpio, and it’s a time of the lunar cycle when you need time to center yourself. With a Mercury-Neptune transit, your thinking can swing from too factual to overly imaginative as the day advances. If you can’t combine the two, you’re missing something. Or, your thought processes are going in circles because you need a break from overthinking. If you’ve denied yourself moments to unwind completely, now’s the time to seek out some healthy escapes. If you feel vaguely guilty about needing some time to yourself, remind yourself that you can’t always be “on.” It’s best to focus on finding peace and a stronger sense of self.
SagittariusWith the Moon in your solar third house all day, dear Sagittarius, you may want to learn a new subject, teach, or brush up on skills. There can also be some restlessness with your personal environment and a desire to see and experience different things. Later today, you could get a sense of unfinished business that dampens your mood somewhat. An inconsistency in an idea, plan, or conversation might nag at you. While these can be valid, consider that some uncertainties may be insecurities in disguise. Doubts might crop up, and if you do experience some lack of energy, it might only mean you need to take a break or a bit of time to adjust. A Mercury-Neptune minor challenging aspect can break your concentration. Bear in mind that people can be a little more off their game or undecided than usual.
CapricornSecurity, comfort, and safety are strong on your mind today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon in your solar second house all day. As the day advances, there can be some mental wavering with Mercury at odds with Neptune. With this transit, it may not be easy to integrate your mind and intuition, which can signal that you need a break from overthinking. It’s best not to communicate in an offhand manner since the chances of misrepresenting yourself run high. Seeing the whole picture isn’t easy just for now, and decision-making is far better when you can see the more layers of a situation. Try to tackle one thing at a time since it can be chaotic otherwise.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Aquarius, and your emotions are colorful, demanding more of your attention. As the day progresses, you could lack a clear plan or worry about unfinished business related to money or business. You don’t have all the answers today, but you may not need them just for now. It could be better to let the answers come to you on their own terms! With Neptune in your resources sector, uncertainties about money, income, or even your worth can be at the root of restlessness or distractions. It may be the time to make some adjustments or slow down to catch your breath and gain perspective.
PiscesThe Moon’s stay in your solar twelfth house all day points to the need to decompress and rest, dear Pisces. Today’s transits aren’t ideal for making commitments or final decisions since it’s difficult to see the whole picture. Personal interests and distractions can take you away from your work or duties, but it may also be that you need a break from overthinking. Today’s restlessness or disconnects can very well signal the need for a healthy escape. There is a scattered feel to the day. Still, it might prompt you to consider whether insecurities or a lack of organization may be interfering with your pursuit of business or practical affairs and independence.
