Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Jupiter turning retrograde today, you can experience what feels like some turnarounds or waning enthusiasm with certain projects or finances, dear Aries. However, as you adjust to the retrograde period, which lasts until December 30th, you’ll recognize it as a strong period for reassessing practical affairs more realistically, easing up on spending, and more realistically considering how much time and energy you have for your extracurricular activities. This is about restoring balance in your life, and it comes at a time when your social life is grabbing more of your attention. Today, with money and resources, you’re coming at things from a different angle, and new insights into old problems can come as a result. The pressure is off when it comes to pushing something forward as it’s better to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas.
TaurusJupiter in your sign is turning retrograde today, dear Taurus, and while Jupiter continues to endow you with confidence and optimism, some of this is turning inward. It’s not about lack of faith–you still have faith in yourself but are less likely to go overboard with it. If you’ve been overdoing pleasures or seeking freedom, this is the time to rethink and make adjustments that bring you down to earth just a little! There may be changes with shared finances or your intimate life. Some de-emphasis of pleasure-seeking may be just what you need right now. Jupiter is retrograde until December 30th. Today is good for expressing yourself through creative mediums. Your mind is hungry for different ideas or plans. The Moon is in your sign all day, and you are craving more company, feedback, and emotional connection.
GeminiThe Moon is in your privacy sector all day, dear Gemini, and it’s very appropriate to seek out opportunities to rest, reflect, and lay low. Jupiter’s retrograde in this same sector starts today and will end on December 30th. It’s bound to draw you inward to some degree–you’re generally more contemplative. Your faith in your instincts may not be as strong as they have been, or you could struggle a little with your faith in life to meet your needs. It’s a temporary and necessary process that allows you to reassess where you want to be, where you’re heading, and whether your connection to your spiritual side requires some nurturing. In fact, as you adjust to this energy, you may find that coming out of your protective shell more often can be beneficial. You are more able to rise above petty problems today by focusing on the bigger picture, and this can affect your mood considerably.
CancerThe Moon in your friendship sector all day can stir your need for networking and making connections, dear Cancer. You may have recently come up with many ideas for future endeavors, but if you’ve put too much on your plate, you’ll start to feel it this week with Jupiter’s retrograde starting today. Your enthusiasm may wane if you have so much before you that you feel overwhelmed, so aim to pare things down. Focus on a few of the more viable plans and goals. It’s possible you’re reassessing your involvement with a friend or group or simply toning down your social life a little. It comes at a good time, with growing influences in your home and family sector and a need to direct some of your energy and time towards your personal life in the coming weeks. Today, you’re optimistic, hopeful, and inspired. Hindsight regarding a friendship is sharp, so that you can see people and past problems with them in a new, more favorable light.
LeoThe Moon is in your professional and reputation sector all day, dear Leo, turning your attention to your responsibilities. You’re naturally ready to rise to a challenge. Still, you may need to curb your enthusiasm a little on the professional front over the coming weeks–just enough to gain perspective and focus on projects that are doable. This de-emphasis may well come naturally with Jupiter turning retrograde today. Until December 30th, there can be a pleasant feeling of letting things unfold naturally and faith that they will work out in the end, as you may have sensed you’ve taken on too much. Enjoy the moment, but capture it as well to carry it forward. This is not a time for actively expanding but rather for reaping the rewards of recent successes and focusing your energy on those projects already underway. If you’ve been overdoing, this is a natural time for easing up on excesses.
VirgoJupiter turns retrograde today, dear Virgo, and will remain retrograde until December 30th. Until you adjust to this energy, you can experience some natural waning of enthusiasm if you’ve been overdoing things. It’s a good time to turn inward and get in touch with what truly motivates and enthuses you. Some of the faith you’ve been nurturing may seem to drop away, but only just enough for you to see your plans in a different, more realistic light. As well, in the coming weeks, a stronger emphasis on practical affairs is likely, so that some de-emphasis of adventurous, pleasure-seeking activities can be beneficial so that you can focus your energies on building, organizing, and taking care of business. Today, the detours you take from your normal routine can be invigorating, particularly on a mental level.
LibraWith Jupiter turning retrograde today, dear Libra, you may need to redirect some of your energy away from an overwhelming focus on a special interest. There can be some waning of enthusiasm until you adjust to Jupiter’s retrograde energy, which is with us until December 30th. There may be a need to slow down expansion in a close relationship or to moderate shared finances/debt. Financial matters can make a turnaround. If you’ve been overspending, over-borrowing, or otherwise too dependent on others for your happiness, this is the time to bring things back into balance. Don’t let doubt obscure your vision of someone special in your life today. Recognize that there is a time for pushing things forward and a time for riding the wash. Today’s strong for getting into close touch with your innermost desires. Ideas come to you spontaneously or through dreams, and they fall into place.
ScorpioJupiter turns retrograde in your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, and will continue in retrograde motion until December 30th. This points to some need to de-emphasize the couple or your relationship goals just a little so that you can focus on your personal plans, more independence, and healthy self-interest for now. Some of the enthusiasm you’ve been feeling about a relationship may begin to wane, or you simply feel the need to detach yourself a little so that a partnership or friendship has time to “breathe” and unfold naturally. This in no way is a negative — it is, in fact, an honoring of the natural ebb and flow of things. Communications are favorable today. New information can enter the picture and help you discover something new about an old problem in a relationship.
SagittariusThe Moon is in your work and health zone all day, dear Sagittarius, and you have an emotional need to set your daily routines straight. Jupiter, your ruler, turns retrograde for a cycle that lasts until December 30th. While enthusiasm for work projects and health endeavors is still in place, you may begin to see areas of excess that require toning down and adjusting. While this can be discouraging at first, it’s actually a fine time to look at these activities and plans from a different perspective. Try not to take on more, and instead focus on what you’ve already begun. This retrograde cycle is timely, as some de-emphasis of work can free up more time to spend networking and connecting, as your sector of friendships, dreams, and happiness goals is coming into stronger focus. Today, new insight about old work or health predicaments can come to you. This is also a fine day for personal influence.
CapricornWith Jupiter turning retrograde in your solar fifth house today, dear Capricorn, this is a time of realigning your thinking and plans, particularly those along the lines of creative projects, romance, entertainment, and children. Jupiter is retrograde until December 30th. It’s possible you experience some waning enthusiasm towards a romance or creative endeavor in the next while, but you may simply, naturally, step back and little to let things flow along. It’s time for some tweaking, and a different perspective on these matters, and is best viewed as a time to catch your breath. There is no need to put things on hold. There can be a sense that you need to give up something pleasurable to gain in another area of life, and decisions can be difficult. Even so, some de-emphasis of your pursuit of pleasures or entertainment can be practical now with building influences in your chart fueling your ambition.
AquariusThe Moon in your family and home sector all day indicates a need for familiarity, dear Aquarius. Jupiter has been bringing strong and enthusiastic energy to your domestic projects and home life this year, and today, turns retrograde until December 30th. This cycle signals a time for reassessing matters and tweaking your plans. It’s possible you experience some waning of enthusiasm, but any slowdowns experienced now offer you the chance to look at your plans from a different perspective so that you can move forward with them later with more confidence. Family life will continue to reward you for many months to come, but some de-emphasis here can benefit you now as more and more responsibilities to the “outside world” come into play. Today is good for studying, learning, and inspiration.
PiscesThe Moon in your communications sector all day indicates a need to keep yourself busy, engaged, and connected, dear Pisces. With Jupiter turning retrograde, you might realize that you’ve taken a little bit more than you can handle with learning, connecting, or daily activities. Don’t let this be a demotivating experience. Instead, reevaluate exactly how much you can manage and decide which areas can be trimmed. Jupiter will be retrograde until December 30th, and you’ll soon grow comfortable with this energy. You’ll probably slow down with brand-new interests and projects, and focus on, enjoy, and develop what you already have in place. Moving forward too fast is not good for anyone. Today is good for doing research, thinking up strategies, and making plans.
