Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Aries, and until the 27th, you often have the upper hand in negotiations. It’s not about scoring intellectual points, but rather your ability to consider the other side of the coin strengthens, giving you a whole new perspective. Decision-making, however, may not be as easy since you see all the sides of a situation. This transit stimulates your curiosity about others and your desire to communicate in your relationships. You seek feedback or conversations more often, and discussing pros and cons can figure strongly in the weeks ahead. Today, you may need to tighten up some rules or boundaries, as even just a little more orderliness can be empowering now. The Moon spends the day in your sign, opening you up to your feelings and emotional needs.
TaurusMercury heads into your work and health sector for a stay until the 27th, dear Taurus. In the weeks ahead, this messenger planet turns your attention to procedures and methods, perfecting projects, getting chores done, and organizing your working spaces. You might upgrade your skills or learn things that help improve your work or health. It’s a stellar cycle for organizing. Work, chores, or daily life can be busier or more involving. Watch for a tendency to fret over details. Otherwise, it’s a fine time to recognize and fix problems. This is one of the more studious and practical cycles of Mercury. Today, you may need to find a better balance between work and play. However, with the Moon in your privacy sector all day, it’s best to honor your need to wind down and recharge your energy.
GeminiMercury starts its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Gemini. Until the 27th, you’re in a stronger cycle for self-expression, socializing, and spontaneous conversation or learning. You might especially enjoy sharing ideas. Communication flows more naturally, and there can be a mental focus on pleasure, fun, romance, entertainment, and creativity in the upcoming three weeks. Mercury occupying the same element (Air) as your sign has its benefits. You’re more self-expressive, and your ideas tend to be received well. There can be more dialogues, communications, and thoughts about creative or romantic pursuits at this time. You might thoroughly enjoy entertaining others with your observations, and you’re attracted to others on a mental level more than usual.
CancerMercury begins its transit of your sector of heart, home, and family today, dear Cancer. Until the 27th, your personal life or domestic world can be busier or mentally engaging. There can be valuable learning lessons through family or about family. Or, this is a time when you’re more preoccupied with personal and domestic matters. You might frequently share your memories or think about the past. This can also extend to a stronger interest in history, in general, not just your own. Your inner world is animated, or there can be important family discussions during this cycle. Today, the Moon is on the opposite side of your solar chart, encouraging you to attend to your responsibilities to the outside world.
LeoMercury begins its transit of your solar third house today, dear Leo. The messenger planet will stick around here until the 27th, boosting and speeding up your daily affairs and kindling your curiosity. It’s one of the easier transits of Mercury, and it can feel fresh, although there can be times when it isn’t easy to focus or concentrate. In fact, this cycle encourages you to diversify, collect intel, and exchange ideas rather than pour your mental energies into a demanding pursuit. It’s a good cycle for easy and pleasant communications and the generating of new ideas or interests. Learning, speaking, writing, and transportation matters are in good shape and stronger focus. Today’s Moon transit encourages you to seek more interesting experiences and ideas, but it can be difficult to fit everything in with current responsibilities.
VirgoMercury begins its transit of your solar second house, dear Virgo, leaving your sign today. This cycle can find you more preoccupied with practical affairs. You want to build and develop your ideas and see tangible results for your efforts in the weeks ahead. It’s a great time to consider improvements to business pursuits and organize your finances. Until the 27th, your thinking is even more practical and resourceful than usual. You might take inventories, make budgets, sell, bargain, or manage money. Ideas for business or money-making ventures can be notable. Today, you can wrestle with some competing desires for security and excitement. Mysteries and complex problems attract and engage you more than usual.
LibraMercury enters your sign today, dear Libra, and you can feel that you’re turning a corner on a mental level. Until the 27th, you can feel clearer or more decided, and your words have more impact than usual. Ideas, conclusions, and decisions come more readily and spontaneously in the upcoming three weeks. You’re also likely to get more attention. With Mercury in your corner, you can be more alert, curious, and connected. You tend to talk about your plans more freely. You’re more eager, direct, and somewhat restless. The Sun remains in your privacy sector until the 22nd, and in a general sense, an introspective theme does continue. However, with Mercury now in your sign, you’re more interactive than you have been recently. Today, a bond can improve as you pay more attention to validating someone’s feelings or opinions. Your social instincts are strong.
ScorpioMercury moves into the sign behind yours today, dear Scorpio, and will stay there until September 27th, when Mercury will enter your sign. The three weeks ahead are good for seeing things you’ve missed or new layers to a situation. You might tie up loose ends on a project or wrap up a project. Taking extra time for contemplation, meditation, research, and behind-the-scenes study or work can be beneficial. This transit closes up a communications cycle, and it makes a lot of sense to review or reassess recent projects, interests, and studies. You tend to keep your thoughts and interests to yourself or mull over issues during this introspective cycle that’s useful in the grander scheme of things. Today, you may want to do more than is possible, making it best to remember your limits. You’re especially sensitive to details of your life that aren’t quite right.
SagittariusMercury begins its transit of your solar eleventh house today, dear Sagittarius. Until the 27th, you’re in good shape to invent new ideas, share your thoughts with others, and network. You’re more inclined to want to mingle or exchange ideas. Valuable learning experiences can result from your association with friends, associates, or groups. It’s a fine time to explore your happiness goals, and your outlook improves overall. You’re in a great position to open up the lines of communication, and conversations or studies flow more smoothly. Today, it’s not exceptionally easy to relax, but it’s worth a try. You want to enjoy yourself even though your responsibilities can be pressing. You might release tensions through creative, entertaining activities. Pulling yourself away from problems or a tendency to overthink can sometimes give you a better perspective.
CapricornMercury begins its transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Capricorn. With Mercury here until the 27th, you’re more often taking care of business, showing off your skills, or getting attention for your abilities. You pack a stronger punch in your communications, and others take more notice of what you’re putting out there. By extension, you can be more guarded about expressing yourself or deliberate about what you say. Your career may demand more communication and people skills in the upcoming three weeks. This influence brings much interest and thought to career and business matters. Your love for planning and goal-setting increases. Today, there can be some critical conclusions drawn. Watch for a tendency to back away from an endeavor due to insecurities, but do aim to be moderate with your choices.
AquariusMercury begins its transit of your adventure and spirit sector today, dear Aquarius. Until the 27th, communications and broad thinking are in particular favor. You’re more hopeful and optimistic than usual, and you’re especially spontaneous and free with your ideas and thoughts. You might discover a new interest, or you could pursue a particular topic with more enjoyment. Mercury is now moving in harmony with your sign, boosting your ability to share, think, learn, and study smoothly. Your mind asks “why?” more than usual during this phase. Meaningful or exotic topics are a stronger draw. Today, you can be excited about following a thought, topic, or personal interest, but duties seem to interrupt you often.
PiscesMercury begins its transit of your shared resources sector today, dear Pisces, and in the coming three weeks, you’re more inclined to read between the lines and strategize. You might do valuable research or investigation, and it’s a fine time to bring more common sense to your intimate world or finances. There can be profound, interesting conversations with others and exciting moments of self-discovery. Until the 27th, you don’t take very much at face value. Your questions are probing, and your thoughts run deep. It’s easy to become lost in a quest for more information, and while it can eat up time, you tend to enjoy the process. Today, with the Moon in your resources sector, you prefer to settle down and get comfortable.
