Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon transit encourages your lighter, more spontaneous side, dear Aries. This transit is not only about escaping the ordinary–you’re expanding your experiences or mind. Today’s Moon-Mars opposition can find you getting worked up with a tense environment, and you might aim to focus and center yourself as much as possible. With a minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto active, don’t let power games with someone or worrisome work matters spoil your good humor. Consider that you need some emotional replenishment and that rushing through your tasks will likely lead to mistakes and disagreements. Get in better touch with your true desires before taking action.
TaurusYou can be primarily focused on an emotional or private matter today, dear Taurus, with the Moon in your solar eighth house all day. There may be an exciting intimate encounter or discovery, but it’s all too easy to work at cross purposes with someone. Transits today could stir up money, business, or ownership matters, and your stronger focus on complicated emotions can interfere with your productivity. Avoid jumping to conclusions or resorting to tactics to get your way with the Sun and Pluto in minor challenging aspect. It’s a further clue that tense undercurrents are brewing with others. Aim to get more information before making important decisions. A feeling of being blocked or inhibited is likely to pass quickly, after which life doesn’t seem quite as serious. Defensiveness can be your worst enemy. While it would be lovely if others could intuit that you need their support, this may not happen right now without stating your needs. Ideally, you learn much by taking on an observer’s role.
GeminiThere can be some feelings of frustration as you could encounter delays and stresses today, dear Gemini. Someone in your life could be envious or devious. Today’s minor Sun-Pluto transit inclines us to avoid a direct route to our goals. While you’re inclined to go your own way with Mars in your sign, the Moon is in your partnership sector all day, and you might seek acknowledgment from others, which is complicated. Aim to focus as much as you can on positive mental stimulation. You don’t need a master plan to be productive today, so aim to be patient. There is wisdom in a step-by-step approach to your ventures.
CancerEmotional energy is a little bit tense today, dear Cancer, and you might aim to avoid undue stress, particularly over differences of opinion. You could have difficulty determining what others expect from you and what you genuinely believe you can and should do. It would help if you found a middle ground. You can undoubtedly feel torn with the Moon’s opposition to Mars, but getting in touch with true needs and wants should probably be a priority. While you feel good about being busy today, remind yourself that you need some breathing room. Avoid getting caught up in drama, if possible. Try instead to focus on what you feel is right. Your belief in yourself and your endeavors can take you far now.
LeoThere can be some tensions today, dear Leo, as others don’t seem cooperative or open to your ideas, but this influence passes rather quickly. It’s due to a minor Sun-Pluto challenge that stirs up fears of not reaching your goals and a sense that you need to strategize to get what you want. Work, duties, or the stresses of daily life can tug at you. While expressing yourself and sharing can be a strong draw, sensitivity on a social level can lead to quick reactions, which can heat things up further. Getting things out into the open can be purging, but today’s energies encourage sloppy approaches, and you might decide that waiting to address issues is for the best. Aim to watch and listen before making big moves.
VirgoYou can feel motivated to bring order or harmony to your home or personal life today, dear Virgo. Even so, it might not be easy getting over frustrations. Allowing tense feelings to motivate you to make changes or put an irritating situation behind you can be productive. While clearing the air may seem to be what you need, there’s a tendency to be too defensive to make much progress, so waiting it out may be best. Due to a minor Sun-Pluto challenge, there can be power struggles or nervous tensions with a lover, children, or friends. Dramatic moves, even if tempting, are liable to cause undue stress, or they can quickly complicate your life right now. Filter out as much drama as possible, and try to remain calm and objective.
LibraYou gravitate to lively settings and people today, dear Libra, with the Moon in your communications sector all day. However, there can be some problems and possibly underhanded or deceptive behavior with today’s minor Sun-Pluto challenge. As well, a Moon-Mars opposition creates mental tension. Stress can build as you become aware of responsibilities that might at first appear a little too much for you to handle. You’ll likely benefit from cutting out the things distracting you from getting where you want to go. Watch for power struggles that lead nowhere, and strive to avoid getting entangled in matters of ego for best results. Focus on what you need to do and feel you should do, and don’t take on any more than that.
ScorpioComfort needs assume special importance today with the Moon in your solar second house all day, dear Scorpio. Even so, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge can dial up the demands and your stress levels in spots. The key is avoiding getting caught up in too many projects or worrying about multiple things at once. It might help to build a list of priorities or take a step-by-step approach to deal with your to-do list, rather than a scattered one that leaves you feeling as if nothing truly was accomplished. There can be some feelings of being slighted or overlooked. Know that this may not be the best time for pushing ahead with plans. Also, watch for a tendency to overindulge as an attempt to tame inner discontent. Attractions can be intense today, but you can also feel unsatisfied if you sense you’re out of balance.
SagittariusThe Moon in your sign stirs a need for emotional spontaneity, dear Sagittarius. However, today’s Sun-Pluto transit isn’t very free-flowing nor conducive to pushing ahead with personal plans. Take your time with new initiatives. Issues of power, control, and responsibility can crop up, or money worries cloud your thinking. Differences and problem areas are in strong focus as the Moon opposes Mars, and it may not be easy to see around them. Mars is currently in your partnership sector, and someone could be trying to take the lead or acting up, disrupting your plans. Aim to stay centered.
CapricornThe Moon in your privacy sector all day prompts a need for quiet or some form of retreat, dear Capricorn. With a minor Sun-Pluto challenge today, however, you could feel undermined. Avoid negative thinking or expectations as much as possible, as it can set you up for a fall. While you should do your best to avoid getting caught up in emotional games, try not to use manipulative tactics to get what you want. With a Moon-Mars transit also active, you could feel torn between wanting to be productive and needing downtime, but getting in touch with your actual needs and wants should probably be a priority. A conservative, balanced approach seems most appropriate now.
AquariusWhile today’s Moon inclines you to crave light interactions, dear Aquarius, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge can introduce pressure. There can be tensions in interpersonal relationships if you or others focus on the flaws or complexities, which is a tendency now. Distractions are plenty, and the key will be to prioritize and adopt a mature approach, avoiding the sometimes strong pull towards game playing and tit-for-tat arguments. You might also vacillate between wanting to do something independently and craving others’ involvement. Focusing on more practical concerns could be useful.
PiscesWith the Moon in your solar tenth house all day, dear Pisces, you’re in the frame of mind that fairly demands you accomplish something worthwhile. Still, there can be some tension with others, which can interfere with productivity, or you could find that responsibilities weigh heavier than usual. Distractions and worries or fireworks with friends or lovers can interrupt the flow. There’s a tendency to dial up the drama today, and it’s a good idea to aim to stay grounded and objective amidst the confusion. Avoid getting caught up in a tug of war when your energy could be better utilized elsewhere.
