Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your solar sixth house for over two days, dear Aries, and you’re finding much to keep you busy. It’s a good time of the lunar month to attend to chores and details. Organizing and sorting are in order. Retrograde Mercury returns to your health and work sector today, alerting you to projects or programs that require a second look. Old problems with work or chores can resurface. Delays are possible but could also help you get something right before moving ahead. You may need to review, redo, or double-check your work. Mercury will remain retrograde until October 2nd, then turn direct and continue its transit until October 10th.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your solar fifth house for a stay of over two days, dear Taurus, and you’re tuning into your needs for joy, self-expression, and love. Also today, retrograde Mercury returns to your sector of entertainment, recreation, romance, and creativity. Mercury will stay in this area until October 10th but will end its retrograde on October 2nd. Communication is not likely to be straightforward in these life departments. However, you stand to learn much from viewing and approaching matters in a new way, perhaps redoing some things and getting them better this time around. You may be returning to old problems, reviewing recent decisions, and dealing with misunderstandings and delays in these spheres of life. From October 2nd, you’ll gradually see forward motion in your plans.
GeminiThe Moon moves into your home and family sector, dear Gemini, where it will visit for over two days. It’s a more contemplative time of the lunar month. Also today, retrograde Mercury returns to this same sector of your solar chart, stirring the need to make contact with family and reorganize your home life. Until October 2nd, while Mercury is still retrograding, you may need to deal with misunderstandings and delays related to these efforts. While sometimes frustrating, they can also save you from making rash decisions. Past issues can resurface for review, and you may look at a decision made several weeks ago in a new way. From October 2nd forward, blockages tend to lift, and you gain more clarity about family and domestic matters. You get the opportunity to strengthen, redo, or rethink some issues to your benefit.
CancerThe Moon heads into your solar third house for a stay of over two days, dear Cancer, and your desire for variety and craving for contact increase. Also today, retrograde Mercury returns to your communications sector, and you may be revisiting recent decisions and projects until October 2nd. Matters surrounding studies, transportation, and essential communications can involve confusion, delays, or backtracking. Aim to be a little more vigilant about what you put “out there” in your interactions, as the chances of being misunderstood run high. However, this can be a good time for doing some catch-up work. You might decide to take a break from your routine and do things just a little differently. You might look back at old projects and find interesting information that helps you in the present. Be flexible and vigilant with marking important appointments and errands on your calendar, but look at recent decisions in new ways for best results now.
LeoThe Moon heads into your solar second house today, dear Leo, where it tends to stabilize you and encourage your need for predictability for over two days. Also today, retrograde Mercury returns to your finance sector, prompting a review or reconsideration of money or business matters. Mercury will transit here until October 10th, but will only be retrograde until October 2nd. It can be an excellent time to find lost items or discover information you missed the first time through. Until the 2nd, it’s less than ideal for entirely new or large purchases since you don’t have all the information you need to make the best choices. You may be dealing with lost or misplaced possessions, facing delays, or reconsidering a purchase or business decision during this cycle. You’ll be looking at things from a new or different perspective, which can lead to new conclusions. From the 2nd forward, clarity comes and the blanks fill in, slowly but surely.
VirgoRetrograde Mercury moves back into your sign today, dear Virgo, where it will spend the rest of its retrograde until October 2nd. Mercury will continue to transit your sign until October 10th, but while it’s still retrograde until the 2nd, some personal plans may stall or regress. It’s time to review rather than draw important conclusions or finalize agreements. Allow yourself room to think and decide rather than pressure yourself to draw quick conclusions. The Moon moves into your sign today, where it will stay for over two days, and you can feel as if you’re coming alive emotionally. You crave a more immediate connection to the world around you at this time of the lunar month.
LibraRetrograde Mercury moves back into your privacy sector after spending some time in your sign, dear Libra. While the Sun just entered Libra and you have more clout and personal presence, there can be some mystery surrounding you. Decision-making may be particularly challenging but might only require more time. Your mind might loop back to the same old problems. Some of the decisions made and projects started in recent times can come up for review now. Mercury will stay in this sector until October 10th but is only retrograde there until October 2nd. Your mind can frequently turn back to the same problem. Now is the time to approach your feelings from an entirely new angle instead of sweeping things under the carpet. It may not be until after October 10th, when Mercury moves back into your sign, that you feel equipped to make a big decision, but more clarity is likely from the 2nd onward.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into harmony with your sign today, dear Scorpio, and for over two days, your attention more often turns to your hopes, dreams, and happiness goals. Retrograde Mercury retreats into your social sector, where it will remain for the rest of its retrograde cycle (until October 2nd) and beyond. Communication with associates, groups, and friends can be subject to misunderstandings. It’s a time to hatch ideas for your future happiness, but you may be dealing with missing information or fuzzy thinking. In fact, you may be waiting for word on a matter. Returning to past issues with a friend or focusing on a past friendship can figure strongly. Nevertheless, it’s time for a new way of tackling the same old problem if it just keeps cropping up! Some of the seeds you recently planted concerning long-term goals will likely need review or revision. While it can be rather annoying, it might ultimately serve you better since you get a second chance to get things right.
SagittariusRetrograde Mercury moves back into your public and professional sector today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s important to pay more attention to what you’re communicating. You may be too quick to jump to conclusions, but remember that information is likely incomplete. It’s a good time for review but not the best period for clear-cut answers. Reconsider things, but consider waiting it out before arriving at firm conclusions, if possible. Nevertheless, it’s a good time for business ideas that are a little outside the box but workable. If there are delays, you get the chance to see a matter in a different light. After October 2nd, you’ll feel better equipped with the information you need to move things forward. Mercury will then retrace its steps, and you’ll feel far more equipped to make satisfying decisions.
CapricornThe Moon moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Capricorn, and you’re looking forward. Retrograde Mercury re-enters your adventure and learning sector today, perhaps prompting some delays or a review of recent decisions related to education, publishing, and travel. Returning to old studies is possible now. Be vigilant about communicating prematurely about matters if you don’t yet have all the facts. Mercury will continue here until October 10th but is retrograde only until October 2nd. It’s best to double-check your calendar and schedules to avoid missing important interviews or deadlines. Today, aim to be clear in your communications, leaving very little to the imagination.
AquariusRetrograde Mercury moves back into your intimacy sector today, dear Aquarius. While Mercury is still retrograde until October 2nd, you might go over financials or intimate conversations from the past. Aim to look at problems, particularly those revolving around shared finances, debts, and balance of power in a relationship, from a new angle or perspective. If they’re re-emerging, they need to be put to rest in a new or different way! It may be best to aim to see the bigger picture–or what it all means. You’ll be in a better place for making final agreements or making refinements to the details after October 2nd. The Moon heads into your solar eighth house today, and you’re observing, researching, or enjoying more absorbing activities.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your solar seventh house for a stay of over two days, dear Pisces, and you’re seeking feedback and balance. Also today, retrograde Mercury retreats into your partnership sector, and a relationship issue that you thought was resolved may re-emerge. It’s a better time to look back, review, and reflect than to make new commitments or seek direct answers from others. Delays can be irritating but might also (eventually) lead to more clarity. Even if some communication channels seem less effective now, this can motivate you to find new and creative ways to communicate your message.
