Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon stirs your enthusiasm, dear Aries, and you can enjoy pleasant interactions with others and share your larger ideas and thoughts. Today and tomorrow, spirits are high but a little unstable due to a Venus-Jupiter influence. It’s probably best to avoid overstating or promising, as it may be better to live in the moment right now. It can be a restless day until you get in touch with your true needs, which can be a tall order today, but far from impossible! Feelings, interactions, or a social event or connection feels larger than life, or there’s a tendency for a tug-of-war in a relationship, and it becomes confusing who truly wants what. Stretch yourself if you feel the desire, but know your limits to prevent snapping, and aim to work on getting to a better place of self-awareness.
TaurusThis is a potentially strong day for bonding with others and getting to know yourself a little better in the process, dear Taurus. You can also feel a strong desire to reach a little higher with your work, services, or support today and tomorrow. The key is to do so in moderation and avoid going over the top. Watch for the temptation to escape or mask problems by overdoing pleasures, which is a temporary fix that only delays things and adds to feelings of guilt. With a Venus-Jupiter opposition, you might recognize a sense of being overextended, and it’s best to know your limits. Avoid investing too much in promises.
GeminiYou’re focusing on partnership or one-on-one interactions more than usual today, dear Gemini. You’re bringing a spirit of acceptance to your relationships and enjoying collaboration. However, a Venus-Jupiter opposition is in play today and tomorrow. And, through disagreement or dilemmas and perhaps some stretching of your imagination, you’ll arrive at a better understanding of a situation. In the meantime, pushing your limits is a temptation. You can experience exaggeration or drama with friends or lovers but should watch for overstating. Look for ways to improve your satisfaction levels if you’re craving a feeling of more connectedness. Ideally, you’re aiming just a little higher for a connection or opportunity, which can work in your favor.
CancerThe Moon moves into your sector of work and routine today, dear Cancer, and you can be anxious to take care of details. This Moon transit reminds you of the importance of getting the primary systems in your life into better shape. Today and tomorrow, there can be a tendency to overextend yourself, however. Your personal life and professional life can seem pitted against one another, and it’s not about choosing but finding a balance or compromise. Try to avoid blindly reaching out for more if you’re not yet in touch with the source of discontent. It may be that you need to stretch or overreach before getting to a place of balance. However, pulling back a little and reassessing what’s important to you can lead to beautiful ideas for improvement.
LeoYou enjoy sharing your ideas and connecting with others, dear Leo. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback. However, with a Venus-Jupiter opposition influencing today and tomorrow, there’s some tendency to overreach. This transit tends to encourage you to reach higher but perhaps to go a little too far, particularly if you’re not in touch with what you genuinely want. Watch for pinning your hopes on things that, even if you achieve them, won’t truly satisfy you. In truth, you’re likely to seek more meaning and fulfillment now. Through striving toward these things in your life, you’ll find happiness, mainly through learning and new experiences and interests, rather than overdoing, overstating, or overindulging. Temporary fixes are tempting but won’t remedy long-standing problems.
VirgoWith the Moon’s move into your solar fourth house today, dear Virgo, you have an emotional need to stick with familiar situations or to seek out safe havens. As the day advances, a Venus-Jupiter comes into play, stirring some restlessness. Today and tomorrow, consider that something that begins too quickly is in danger of burning out almost as fast. The key to balance is to avoid taking on too many responsibilities or additional projects as you seek more meaning or enjoyment from life. If you feel a little off, go against the grain and aim to simplify rather than do more. The fewer distractions you have now, the better you’ll understand your needs, which puts you in an advantageous position, particularly with your money, valuables, and relationships.
LibraThere can be a pleasant focus on learning, sharing, and connecting today, dear Libra. The Moon cooperates with the Sun and Venus in your sign, enhancing your charm and influence. Today and tomorrow, you’re in good shape to envision what you genuinely want, but avoid rushing forward with incomplete plans. It’s best to keep your expectations reasonable while dreaming of new possibilities. Temporary fixes to uneasy feelings can be tempting but won’t remedy long-standing problems. A Venus-Jupiter aspect active now can push you to reach for more from your life and relationships, but going into this pursuit blind won’t lead to satisfying results. You may seek comfort and closeness, but your freedom is also essential to you. There is a compromise or middle ground to work towards, even if it’s not immediately apparent. Getting in touch with what you truly desire is complicated, but if you commit to it, it can be rewarding. Simplify and prioritize for best results.
ScorpioYou’re focusing on the world of the five senses, your needs and wants, and your immediate environment today, dear Scorpio. You have confidence in your ability to get things done and take good care of yourself and others. Later today and into tomorrow, it can be tempting to overcompensate or overdo to resolve problems of restlessness or discontent, which will only exacerbate the problem. If you recognize the signs that you’re overreaching, try to manage it as soon as possible, as greater rewards are waiting for you if you stretch your imagination and still work to keep your feet on the ground. Doing more for someone who doesn’t appreciate your efforts is unlikely to improve matters, and if people are draining you, aim to put more of your energy into something that serves your happiness. The more content you are, the more you radiate warmth outwards.
SagittariusThe Moon’s move into your sign adds color to your emotional world today, dear Sagittarius. Today and tomorrow are not ideal for decision-making, but it’s a generally good time for dreaming up new ideas and possibilities. Inner restlessness can be an issue, but it can also stir you to great things if you let yourself go there. Creative or romantic feelings are strong and challenging to direct. Excess or overindulgence can be a problem if you’re tempted to look outside of yourself for happiness, meaning, and purpose. Without a plan or self-awareness today, there can be some missteps, but discontent can motivate you to make beneficial improvements. An epiphany or turning point may occur in a romantic relationship or friendship. It makes sense to carefully consider whether expansion will add joy or stress to your life. You can also be a little more courageous about seeking out the people and situations you value most, and the trick is to push boundaries just enough.
CapricornThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, and behind-the-scenes activities, extra rest, or a reprieve from recent demands can be in order, dear Capricorn. This Moon transit helps you to catch up on an emotional level by processing and digesting recent events and feelings. Still, there could be an epiphany or turning point related to your career or home life today or tomorrow. There can be restlessness if you’re overwhelmed or if you’re feeling some discontent in either area. If you’ve been overdoing your attention to both your personal and professional life, you might realize now that too much is too much, even if you’re doing things you love! If you crave more satisfaction from your pursuits, count this desire as valid and make a plan, but try not to go overboard pushing for temporary fixes.
AquariusWhile this is not an ideal day for important decision-making, dear Aquarius, it’s a good time for enjoying friendships, sharing, projects, and learning. There can be great ideas and enthusiasm today and tomorrow, but you may want to watch for overshooting with Venus in opposition to Jupiter. You have a higher interest in connecting and personal interests these days, and recent excesses on these fronts can be pretty apparent now. Too much is too much, even when you’re enjoying yourself! If you’re absorbing so much that you’re stressed out, this completely defeats the purpose of pleasurable pursuits. Urges for out-of-the-ordinary experiences can lead you to focus on material or empty pleasures rather than what you truly need, so aim to be self-aware, and you can push yourself beyond an obstacle.
PiscesWith the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart early, your attention turns to your responsibilities and larger life goals, dear Pisces. Today and tomorrow, there can be excitement and uncertainty or indecision that can stir restlessness. Before indulging yourself or making quick decisions, consider what’s best for you in the future. You might also vacillate between wanting more intimacy and preferring to handle things independently. You’re particularly sensitive to the moods of people around you, which can lead to personal ups and downs. It may be best to center yourself and discern which feelings are truly yours, aiming to shed those you’ve adopted as your own.
