Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re inclined to let your intuition flow naturally and spontaneously today, dear Aries, and it can benefit you as Venus and Neptune head into harmony. You’re in an excellent position to better understand people and money, not through analysis but your intuition! Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels, and you’re tuning in quite beautifully to trends that can help generate business ideas and approaches. You are displaying more patience than usual with the people in your life, and you may very well be seeing beauty in people, places, and situations that you hadn’t seen before. Today’s energies inspire and encourage your imagination.
TaurusToday’s energies nicely accent your intuition, dear Taurus, and your powers of attraction are high. Sometimes, your imagination can lead you down the wrong path, but today, it’s working in your favor. Even without knowing all the details, you seem to arrive at a place of understanding about recent events, especially surrounding your relationships. Others give you the benefit of the doubt. You are at your most companionable, and people tend to be on your side. Friendships seem supportive of your dreams and goals. Conversations and interactions help you see your feelings and ideas more clearly. Whether directly or indirectly, others show you things about yourself that you may not acknowledge otherwise. The Moon moves into your communications sector for a couple of days, and you can find yourself more engaged and interested.
GeminiWhile the Moon moves into your steady, predictable solar second house, dear Gemini, today’s transits can bring out the artist in you. Your imagination soars. You seem to arrive at solutions instinctively and not necessarily logically, applying your creativity to practical matters. There could be unusual circumstances connecting you with the right people, projects, and information now, particularly regarding work and health issues. Business can benefit if you take into account any neglected spiritual or humanitarian goals. You have a stronger desire to make and produce beautiful things, and you may be thinking about ways to turn dreams into products, systems, or plans.
CancerToday’s energies are excellent for compassion, forgiveness, and charm, dear Cancer, especially as the day advances. The Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, bringing more color to your emotional world. Your particular kind of gentleness is more appealing than usual right now, and you seem to be attracting who or what you want. With Venus and Neptune heading into harmony in sister Water signs, it’s an excellent time for forgiveness, whether it’s about forgiving others or yourself for something from the past that isn’t going to change! You can experience some good feelings of acceptance now, and it’s comforting. You’re likely to find it easier to enjoy yourself when you let go of negative thoughts or expectations. Creative expression is favorable, and you could be making a positive connection. It feels natural to express yourself, learn, play, and connect more heartfully.
LeoThe Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, dear Leo, and your needs for a healthy escape increase. With Venus and Neptune moving into harmony, it can be a great time to strengthen your relationships by appreciating the common or familiar threads that connect you. Compassion flows more naturally and liberally, and you’re open to seeing the positive side of people and situations. There can be more tenderness and gentleness in your interactions, and a theme of service or support boosts your day. At the same time, long-range plans made now are particularly sound, and while you’re enjoying the present, it also feels good to keep your eye on the long view.
VirgoSharing ideas can be especially pleasing, dear Virgo. The Moon moves into your social sector, boosting your need to pursue your happiness goals. As well, Venus heads into harmony with Neptune, and there’s a real chance of coming to an understanding. This transit encourages you to let go of tension and enjoy life’s beautiful moments. A partner or friend’s acceptance, conversation, or input/feedback can help you relax. There is good energy for expressing your care and concern verbally and getting a warm message across, even with Mercury newly retrograde. This is because people look for the intention behind the words and are less focused on the syntax. Pay close attention to dreams and daydreams today, as you may very well come up with a solution to a long-standing problem. You’re also in good shape for enjoying what you’re learning, with a learning breakthrough possible. You see your way out of a problem or understand a matter more clearly, and it comes as a relief.
LibraThe day’s energies are accepting, dear Libra, stirring your imagination. You appreciate the finer things in life. You might even make a soul connection now, or you get that feeling that things are magically falling into place. You’re likely to enjoy some psychic rapport with a person in your life. Nevertheless, the Moon heads to the top of your solar chart, reminding you of your responsibilities, ambitions, and long-term goals. Money or business ideas can be golden now, as you’re sensing what others need and want. You’re also in a better place about your own needs and values. Money could come through unusual or hidden sources, and ideas related to work or health can inspire you. Maintaining some mystery around you can work to your benefit, and holding back a little can be the right strategy for now. The heart you’re putting into your projects shows.
ScorpioToday’s energies favor the spiritual and social elements of your life, dear Scorpio. Venus in your sign is heading into harmony with Neptune, sprinkling some magic on your interactions. Also, the Moon moves into your spirit sector, turning your attention to your higher ideals. Your more charming and likable qualities are in the spotlight, and a gentle, romantic, or dreamy theme can be part of this. Holding back just a little can be helpful. Some emotional distance –just a little–can help you assess a situation and perhaps enjoy yourself a little more than usual. It can also attract others.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your solar eighth house for a couple of days, dear Sagittarius, and your emotional life is more colorful and a stronger draw. Your inner fantasy world is alive and well with Venus heading into a harmonious aspect with Neptune. You might have a warm feeling about a secret that you’re holding onto or a sense of peace about your private life. Instead, you can come to an understanding of a delicate matter from the past. Sometimes closure is about letting go of the idea of getting it! You’re also in good shape for extending someone a hand or for a compassionate exchange. Transits today help soothe and bring the light of understanding to your heart. It follows that forgiveness comes more readily. You’re also in fine shape for drawing upon your wisdom and helping others. You might decide to open up about a private matter with someone you trust. You may have an important meeting or event that occurs behind the scenes or a new understanding of an issue that has weighed heavily on your conscience.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your solar seventh house for a couple of days, dear Capricorn, bringing out your need for more harmony in your emotional world. Fortunately, a Venus-Neptune trine comes into influence, helping to soothe and smooth out your life in subtle ways and leading you to a better headspace. A friend or network could be integral to getting everything into perspective, or someone’s thoughtfulness lifts your spirits. Forgiveness comes naturally. You could enjoy a psychic rapport with someone later today, or you may be expressing compassion, forgiveness, or kind words that inspire others. If you need to build bridges, it’s a fine time for doing so in gentle, even indirect ways. You’re more inclined to appreciate the positive things in your day, as well as the good people in your life.
AquariusToday’s energies are good for letting go of stress, dear Aquarius. In fact, letting go of tension or clearing your head can be most rewarding in subtle ways. You have a third eye with business and practical matters, but you also see different layers of a person or situation to your benefit. You’re coming from a place of intuition rather than listening to your fears, and hunches seem more accurate as a result. Extra charm or intrigue surrounds you today in a leadership or professional role, and it seems to work to your advantage. Financial thinking is exceptionally bright today, and you’re excited to arrive at solutions to problems. While the Moon’s move into your work and health sector encourages you to take care of business, you also recognize the need to decompress and diffuse. You benefit from seeing where overthinking only leads to stress.
PiscesToday’s energies are vital for entertaining interesting ideas and expressing yourself, dear Pisces, even with Mercury now retrograde. The day particularly shines for acceptance, understanding, and forgiveness–areas that you do exceptionally well. You might have an important revelation, and it can involve letting something go and then putting your faith in the universe that it will find its way to where it belongs! There is natural energy with you for seeking new experiences and reaching out to others. Even so, you tend to attract rather than act just for now, and it seems the best approach. Your powers of attraction are mighty, and relationships and creative pursuits are in favor. A relationship can expand as you share your ideas, and high energy is with you for attracting love and friendship into your life through shared intellectual interests.
