Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesUnfinished business can weigh you down somewhat in the first half of the day, dear Aries. 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 convoluted or insubstantial. You might decide to take a time-out from heavy thinking and to consider ways to handle the matters that have you feeling uncertain at some point when you feel more confident. It may be that you need more time to intuit your next move. There can be a need to take care of unfinished business before moving forward. People have a way of jumpstarting your thinking processes at this stage with Mercury in your partnership sector and the Moon joining Mercury later today. Instincts improve for relating, and you might enjoy a conversation with someone who’s on the same mental wavelength as you.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Taurus, and you more readily focus on the practical things or your daily affairs that need attention. In the first half of the day, 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 small and temporary dip in confidence about recent decisions and choices, but this is only part of the natural ebb and flow of things. Treat it as a signal to slow down and make adjustments or break from overthinking things for a moment. Distractions are likely to take the form of friends or ambiguities in your social life. If your heart’s not entirely in something, procrastination comes more easily. Keep in mind that negotiations can be tough today, as there is information that is not yet known or that’s easy to overlook. Later today, more clarity is likely, particularly as you sort out your feelings and needs. Communication can help center you and relieve your mind regarding some of your troubles or concerns.
GeminiYou may need to accept some ambiguities and wait out a decision in the first half of the day, dear Gemini. Neptune is currently transiting your career, life path, and performance sector. When under mild strain as it is today, uncertainties related to your general life direction or responsibilities and 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. Swinging from overly logical to overly fantastical ideas of a person or situation is unproductive. If you’re paying too much attention to details and neglecting to let your intuition guide you, you won’t arrive at useful conclusions. Aim to make some peace with uncertainty and have faith that things will fill in when you need answers. Later today, it’s easier to sort things out and focus. The Moon spends the day in your creative sector, which can be emotionally freeing in some ways.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, and it’s a time of the lunar cycle when you need time to center yourself, dear Cancer. In the first half of the day, 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. You may not be sure whether you want to stick with what’s safe or branch out and do something entirely new. You seek a little more meaning from life than usual, but there is also a general feeling of being in limbo. You can’t force inspiration, making it best to let it come to you naturally. Stepping back from a problem can help. Later today, it becomes far easier to sort out your needs and feelings, and getting to the root of any recent problems in your personal life is possible.
LeoYour curiosity is strong today, dear Leo. While you’re in the mood to fact-find, connect, and learn, a decision may not be clear-cut in the first half of the day. You could be swinging from fact-finding and daydreaming today, having difficulty getting the full picture of a situation. This can mean you miss the mark, and you may need to wait for a time when your intuition and mind are working together harmoniously, if possible. Consider your ideals and how to incorporate them in satisfying ways into your current projects and pursuits since ignoring them won’t work for you for too long. While you could find others aren’t quite getting what you mean, as the day advances, sorting things out comes far more naturally, making it easier to verbalize what you want.
VirgoYour mood stabilizes today, dear Virgo, with the Moon spending the day in your solar second house. In the first part of the day, whether there are more distractions or you’re more distractable, you can have problems focusing. 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. Ambiguities in a relationship could make it difficult to concentrate fully on the task at hand. Consider that excess can be a symptom of unrest. If you can’t seem to get a conversation in sync, try not to take it personally, as it’s likely just a hiccup. As early as tonight, words come more easily. Let inspiration come to you rather than try to force it. Uncertainty can sometimes help give you some rest if you allow it to happen. Playing around with ideas becomes enjoyable later today if there’s no pressure to arrive at a decision or conclusion. It can be a good time to build upon what you have rather than urgently seek something new to do.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your sign, meeting Mercury there, dear Libra. Your desire to express yourself is stronger than usual. In the first part of the day, there can be something missing from your observations that can lead to poor decisions unless you wait things out. A Mercury-Neptune transit doesn’t make it easy for you to see the full picture. 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 likely. If you let your mind idle, you might end up worrying needlessly over the tiniest things, leading to restlessness and irritability. Later today, your intellectual capacities heighten.
ScorpioThe Moon’s stay in your solar twelfth house all day points to the need to decompress and rest, dear Scorpio. It’s not ideal for making commitments or final decisions since it’s difficult to see the whole picture. In the first part of the day with a Mercury-Neptune quincunx, thinking can swing from too factual to overly imaginative, but 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.” Even so, later today, communications can help you sort things out, or organizing your thoughts seems particularly worthwhile.
SagittariusIn the first part of the day, unfinished business can have a way of hanging over your mood, dear Sagittarius. 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 challenge can challenge your concentration. 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. People can be a little more off their game or undecided than usual today. Later today, the Moon joins Mercury in your solar eleventh house, and exploring new ideas can be fruitful. Great ideas can also result from casual interactions with networks.
CapricornThere can be some mental wavering in the first part of the day, dear Capricorn. With Mercury at odds with Neptune, it may not be easy to integrate your mind and intuition. You might consider it a 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 is challenging just for now, and decision-making is far easier when you can see the more layers of a situation. Try to tackle one thing at a time since it can be chaotic otherwise. Later today, however, aim to pay attention to what you’re picking up, particularly related to work and business. Communications can be lively and stimulating, as well as refreshingly open.
AquariusYou are especially intrigued by new ideas and experiences these days, dear Aquarius, with Mercury in your solar ninth house. Today, the Moon aligns with Mercury, and there can be a mind-expanding moment. Still, in the first half of the day, you may be lacking a clear plan or worrying 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. You may need 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. As the day advances, there may be good news or rewarding conversations. There can be a real buzz of ideas with you.
PiscesToday’s energies can drive you to research a matter further or seek a deeper understanding of a situation, dear Pisces. Consider that you may not have enough information about money matters, joint business ventures, or shared resources to make satisfying conclusions in the first half of the day. You can feel slightly off your game or out of synch with others temporarily. 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. This can very well be a signal to enjoy a healthy escape. There is a scattered feel to the day, but later today, you find it easier to connect with your needs and wants. You might take the time to think about how insecurities or lack of organization may be interfering with your pursuit of business or practical affairs and independence. Playing around with ideas becomes a more enjoyable, light-hearted experience as the day advances.
