Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEven with Mercury about to turn retrograde, you’re in a good position to communicate your feelings in the first half of the day, dear Aries. You’re ready to solve problems. You’re in an excellent place to strengthen relationships, make good connections, and enjoy a sense of mutual support. There is a sense that reaching out to others is right for you and can help move you forward. Even so, putting something brand new into action is probably not the best choice. As the day advances, impatience and restlessness or perhaps ego can end up slowing you down. Try to tame impulses to prove yourself as it can cause some regret later.
TaurusThe atmosphere around you today is conducive to learning, sharing, and growing, dear Taurus. Improving confidence in yourself to earn more or take charge of your practical affairs can figure strongly now. You can absorb a lot, mainly related to your work and health. Mercury will turn retrograde tomorrow, and you may be turning to the past for answers or revisiting old problems from a new perspective in the weeks ahead. You’ll find that pushing matters doesn’t get you very far and that working on review, refinement, and editing projects makes more sense now. Later today, there’s a tendency to become all wound up about a small matter that can delay your progress–and fun–in other areas.
GeminiThis can be a good time for pouring your energy into a special project, pastime, or endeavor, dear Gemini. It’s natural to express your ideas or art and exchange information today. People are receptive to and appreciative of your unique perspective. You seem to magnetize situations to you that help you grow, improve, and build your confidence. You’re learning a lot about your independence and initiative. Later today, however, you may be a little too wound up or impatient in such a manner that you get in the way of yourself! Choose your battles, and perhaps even your debates, wisely, especially with Mercury just about to turn retrograde. Aim to honor your long-term plans and strategies instead of blowing them through impulsive moves.
CancerWith Mercury about to turn retrograde, it’s better to edit projects already in progress than it is to start something brand new, dear Cancer. You’re comfortable with others today, however, and you’re also ready to take on a gentle challenge. Supportive emotional and family relationships can figure strongly, and setting aside some time for reflection can be very helpful. Later today, you may want to watch for acting impatiently or in haste. It can be hard to see much beyond the moment. Try not to impede your progress with an impulsive move. It’s better to take a step back from a hectic pace with the Moon in your privacy sector all day.
LeoPast errors can crop up today and tomorrow with Mercury about to turn retrograde, dear Leo, but instead of stressing yourself out, take advantage of the time you have to reevaluate what you are doing. Even with this climate, you can do some decent lighthearted connecting and communicating. You might come up with some interesting ideas that may need more work but that have high potential. Mental interests, learning, and projects tend to fare nicely. You gravitate to gentle challenges. Even so, you mustn’t take on too much. As the day advances, especially, be on the lookout for a tendency to overshoot with deadlines, projects, plans, or work. Making promises may lead to setting up expectations that will be difficult to fulfill or live up to later. Enthusiasm does run high, so it can be too easy to take something on and go big.
VirgoYou can feel pleasantly challenged and motivated today, dear Virgo. Mercury is about to turn retrograde, suggesting the need to revisit unresolved issues in the weeks ahead. Even so, energies today are good for work, financial discoveries, or fabulous ideas that give you a sense that you’re going somewhere. You might recognize the need to put yourself “out there” or believe in yourself to enjoy new opportunities. Even if it feels a bit uncomfortable momentarily, you sense that it’s to your advantage. You may get the chance to use your natural talents in rewarding ways. Keep in mind that, with Mercury retrograde in the weeks ahead, you’re in better shape for developing strategies to reach work goals than you are for brand new ventures. Later today, it can be all too easy to become fired up about a matter. Aim to watch for overshooting with your money or talents, and consider whether your pride might be skewing your decisions. If you feel disrespected, consider a plan or strategy to address it rather than let the frustration rule your moves. Impatience might set you back or work against you.
LibraWith Mercury about to turn retrograde in your sign, dear Libra, your path is to look at current plans in new ways and perhaps slow things down a little. Even so, you’re likely to want to play things by ear in the first half of today. Spiritual growth and wellness can be in focus. You might be a mentor of sorts right now, guiding someone to a better mental space. You’re in great shape for growth-oriented, sharing, and learning activities. Contributing and connecting come more naturally and are rewarding. You might also feel inspired by a story or viewpoint. Mercury heading into a station encourages looking at past projects, but today’s energies are good for intuitively arriving at new ideas and approaches. Later today, consider that pride or impatience can impede your progress. You may find it challenging to stick to the task.
ScorpioYour emotional disposition is strong today, dear Scorpio, and you’re up for a challenge. There can be a boost to your personal or private life, and you enjoy the benefits of taking extra time to connect with your feelings, inner needs, and desires. You may find special meaning in helping others, support, volunteer work, or an intimate connection. With Mercury about to turn retrograde, decision-making may not be as straightforward as it has been, which encourages you to look more deeply within for answers. Aim to take more time to think things through in the coming weeks–the process should be revealing and rewarding. Later today, hasty moves and decisions can set you back. Especially if you’ve been building a project, be careful that you don’t throw caution to the wind now.
SagittariusYou’re likely to find support for your creative efforts or projects, dear Sagittarius. Your interactions with a partner, friends, or acquaintances can be particularly positive, inspiring, and supportive. The flow of communication is energetic and smooth, even with Mercury on the verge of turning retrograde. You or someone in your life can develop fabulous ideas that contribute to a dream or vision. Minor changes and improvements are precisely what you need at the moment with your personal interests, social life, and long-term happiness goals. However, with Mercury about to turn retrograde, crossed wires can occur. Watch that impatience or pride doesn’t interfere with the progress you’re making, particularly if you’ve been getting yourself settled into a better routine. It can be all too easy to react quickly and set yourself back, as impatience can work against you now.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Capricorn, suggesting that you’ll do best if you pay special attention to your daily affairs, tasks, and commitments. Fortunately, you’re likely to feel more secure about your accomplishments or work today. There can be a boost to your sense of purpose or mission now. Despite a private, internal focus, you may be in the position of increased responsibility, and you’re wearing this role well! Mercury is about to turn retrograde, and there can be some confusion temporarily with communications. Later today, watch for being misguided by sudden desires or feelings. There is a tendency to react too hastily or to fly off the handle about matters that are best handled more considerately.
AquariusIt’s a good time to learn something valuable for progressing a hobby, pet project, or romance, dear Aquarius. It can be rewarding to connect and share ideas and bond with others as you do. You’re feeling more self-confident and optimistic in your social relationships, and you’re seeking more meaning as you express yourself and share your ideas and talents with others. Mercury is about to turn retrograde, and it will be necessary to tread lightly with your interactions. Misunderstandings are all too likely as the shift occurs. However, you stand to gain tremendous insight by observing and listening today and in the weeks ahead. Allow room for delays and mistakes. Later today, watch for stirring up trouble or reacting too quickly to challenges or differences of opinion. If you get riled up unnecessarily or out of the blue, look for reasons rather than act out without thinking of consequences.
PiscesYour desire to grow, build, improve, and move forward, particularly in your emotional or personal life, is prominent right now, dear Pisces. Resolving conflicts comes organically with a focus on reinforcement and reward. Relationships get a nice boost since you’re not afraid to show your compassion. You may gain just the perspective you need to feel energized and motivated. Even so, it’s not an ideal time for big decisions. Mercury is just about to turn retrograde, and if your mind has been running ahead of you recently, it’s a time for slowing down a little to allow the rest of you to catch up. It might also be an opportunity to return to old projects and see them in new ways. Later today, watch for impatience or ego matters getting in the way of projects or even relationships that you’ve worked hard to grow and improve.
