Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesComfort needs assume special importance with the Moon in your solar second house for much of the day, dear Aries. You’re in a practical frame of mind. The day will likely get busier as it progresses, and possibly a little less satisfying if you’re not adjusting to the quicker pace. Don’t let power games with someone or worrisome work matters spoil your good humor. Consider that you need some emotional replenishment. You’re less interested in enjoying new experiences than you are in exploring your feelings today. With a minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Pluto active, watch for rushing through your tasks, which can lead to mistakes and disagreements.
TaurusThe Moon continues in your sign much of the day, dear Taurus, keeping you on your toes. Your feelings seem to take the lead. Later today, you’re steadier and more content–more inclined to stick with familiar and comfortable settings and activities. Transits today manage to 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 a minor challenging aspect. It’s a 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 as serious. Consider that defensiveness can be your worst enemy today. Ideally, you learn much by taking on an observer’s role.
GeminiWith the Moon continuing its transit of your private solar twelfth house, dear Gemini, you’re likely to begin the day preferring some quiet or anonymity. However, after the Moon enters your sign later today, your need for emotional connectedness emerges. It’s a time for following your feelings. However, there can be frustration as you encounter delays and stresses. Watch for a tendency for some to be envious or devious. Today’s minor Sun-Pluto challenge inclines us to avoid a direct route to our goals. It’s best to find your center and engage in earthy, grounding activities. You don’t need to have a master plan to be productive today, so be patient. There is wisdom in a step-by-step approach to your ventures, as well as particular satisfaction in so doing.
CancerThe Moon continues in your social sector, inspiring your need for connection, dear Cancer. Later today, it heads into your solar twelfth house, and you’ll do well to pause your busy schedule and enjoy a couple of days in which ambitions move to the back burner. Emotionally, it’s time to heal, digest, process, and decompress. However, a Sun-Pluto minor challenge is also in play, and it’s best to avoid undue stress over differences of opinion. You could have difficulty sorting out what others expect from you and what you genuinely believe you can and should do. It would help if you found a middle ground. 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.
LeoWith the Moon at the top of your solar chart, dear Leo, circumstances seem to demand you pay attention to priorities. Later today, however, you’re ready for some recreation or an easier emotional focus. But with a Sun-Pluto minor challenging aspect in play, there can be some tense undercurrents to manage. Others may not seem cooperative or open to your ideas. This transit stirs up fears of not reaching our goals and a sense that we must strategize to get what we want. Work and stresses of daily life can tug at you. Getting some time to yourself would be most helpful. Sensitivity on a social level can lead to quick reactions, which can heat things up further. Getting matters 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.
VirgoYour mood for adventure and variety continues today, dear Virgo, but the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, drawing out your more serious or responsible side. With today’s Sun-Pluto minor challenge, getting over frustrations might not be easy. Allowing tense feelings to motivate you to make changes or put an irritating situation behind you would be the most 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. This transit can produce 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 for the best results.
LibraA reflective mood continues for much of today, dear Libra, although the desire for more movement or broader goals takes over as the day advances. However, there can be some problems and possibly underhanded or deceptive behavior with today’s minor Sun-Pluto challenge. Stress can build as you become aware of responsibilities that might, at first, appear a little too much for you to handle. You can benefit from cutting out what distracts you from getting where you want to go. Watch for power struggles that lead nowhere. Avoid getting entangled in matters of ego for best results. You’ll be in fine shape for new insights if you focus on what you need and should do and avoid taking on any more than that.
ScorpioThe Moon continues its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, and you seek balance and perspective. You’re not at your most independent, which is natural at this point in the lunar cycle. However, later today, you seek out a little more intensity with the Moon’s move into your intimacy sector for over two days. You’re more inclined to watch and see than to jump into action. A Sun-Pluto minor challenge can dial up the demands and your stress levels in spots. The key is to avoid getting caught up in too many projects or worrying about multiple things simultaneously. It might help to build a list of priorities or take a step-by-step approach to dealing with your to-do list. There can be some feelings of being slighted or overlooked. Know that this may not be the best time for pushing ahead with plans. Attractions can be intense today, but you can also feel unsatisfied if you sense you’re out of balance.
SagittariusThe Moon continues to move through your work and health sector today, dear Sagittarius, putting you in fine shape for taking care of details. Later today, relationships capture your attention. You may not feel completely understood, however, with a minor challenging Sun-Pluto transit in play. Today’s transits are not entirely free-flowing or conducive to pushing ahead with personal plans. Take your time with new initiatives and avoid depending on someone to help you out, just for the time being. Issues of power, control, and responsibility can crop up, or money worries cloud your thinking. Aim to center yourself so you can channel your energy into handling the most critical issues in your life.
CapricornYou’re in good shape for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood, dear Capricorn, although as the day advances, you’re inclined to take things far more seriously. For one, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and you prefer not to be idle. Your attention turns to taking care of business and pressing matters. For another, with a minor Sun-Pluto challenge, 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. A conservative approach in business is probably best for now.
AquariusBehind-the-scenes activities can be in focus as you begin the day, dear Aquarius. Later today, you’re ready to share yourself and seek more interaction with the Moon’s move into your creativity sector. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. However, 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.
PiscesYou gravitate to lively settings and people today, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your communications sector much of the day. You can be pleasantly busy, although a little scattered. You crave more comfort, familiarity, and quiet as the Moon moves into your family and soul sector later today. It’s time to explore your inner world and get in better touch with your need for nurture. However, there can be some tension with others, 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, making it 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.
