Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEnergies today are easygoing, dear Aries, but also gently encouraging. You’re in particularly good shape for making progress on a project or business endeavor, making a purchase, or taking special care of your things. Something novel can revitalize you, but it’s the little things that are more important to you than usual now, and a small change can put you in a nice mood. Your appetite for pleasure, beauty, and comfort is stronger than usual. Still, you’re emotionally inclined to play it safe today, and your spirit is in need of a bit of comfort and familiarity. While you’re more attuned to your practical affairs these days, you’re open to answering your intuition on these matters right now.
TaurusYour appetite for pleasure is strong today, dear Taurus. The Moon spends the day in your sign, forming a grand trine with the Sun and Jupiter, among other supportive aspects. You’re feeling in big ways, and transits seem to encourage you to pursue your personal dreams. There are opportunities to express yourself constructively and satisfyingly today. Your communications more readily reflect what’s going on in your heart. There can be pleasant interactions with friends and a nice spirit of cooperation, along with a comfortable level of intimacy–a rather rare balance. This Moon transit is gently revitalizing. Your creative and enterprising impulses come to the foreground.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Gemini, and you tend to need some form of retreat or break from the usual. You continue to need and benefit from a little time off on an emotional level, and sidestepping overly noisy or demanding situations would be a wise choice if feasible. Something might work out to be easier than you previously imagined today. Your intuition is working powerfully, or you’re listening to it more than usual, and you can quickly become comfortable with your feelings. You stand to learn a lot from observation. You might enjoy getting things done in the background in some manner now, and a steady pace makes the most sense.
CancerYou might decide to let a friend in on an idea or situation today, dear Cancer, and you can feel great that you did. A positive boost or lifting of spirits can occur with the Moon harmonizing with a bevy of planets, largely in your social sectors. Your imagination is active in a supportive manner, and your vision and optimism are strong. Connecting with kindred spirits is possible. It’s relatively easy to find satisfying outlets for your needs. Community-oriented or networking activities thrive. Your need for friendship strengthens, and existing connections can be nurtured. Practical elements of your life tend to take the backseat to social matters today, and you gravitate toward those things that help you release stress.
LeoYour increased faith in your dreams and ideas today can lead to especially good feelings, dear Leo. Paying special attention to the more subtle layers and details of your life comes more naturally. It’s a time for finding the meaning in recent events. Leadership qualities are prominent, even though the day isn’t flashy or especially dynamic. With a stronger awareness of your reputation or what you’re projecting out to the world, you can feel inspired to pursue goals that represent you. You feel good about what you’ve accomplished, and you’re a little more patient about what you want to achieve in the future. This attitude can help you pace yourself, and it’s a particularly successful approach right now.
VirgoYou continue to look for opportunities to spread your wings in some manner today, dear Virgo, with the Moon’s all-day transit of your solar ninth house. Your urge to explore new ideas and experiences is strong. You feel freer to pursue your interests today, and sharing ideas can be satisfying. It can be a good time to put plans or promises to yourself into motion, but you’re also not pushing, which is helpful. The day favors a steady pace. You seem to be at your best if activities you take part in today allow you some freedom and space. You’re working on inspiration, and you have a better ability to focus on the positive and uplifting elements of your life.
LibraYou’re answering your intuition more than usual today, dear Libra, and you might see new layers of a situation altogether. Research, analysis, solving problems, and devising strategies are in favor. Your focus vastly improves, and you feel less scattered. You can make meaningful connections that allow you to solve problems and discover reasons and motivations today. You seek to scratch the surface more deeply, enriching your life if you use the energy wisely. It’s a day to highlight and strengthen your emotions, close ties, dreams, and inner world.
ScorpioYou tend to be more emotionally invested in your relationships today with the Moon in your partnership zone, dear Scorpio. This transit tends to amp up moodiness, whether it’s your own or that of a partner. You might benefit from some feedback that helps you round out a decision with the right balance of imagination and practicality. Someone can seem to bring out the best in you–and you in them. You’re in better shape than usual in your relationships as long as you aim to live in the moment without rigid expectations. You’re communicating with heart, and there is less “noise” around you to distract you from expressing the intentions behind your words. There is joy in responding to opportunities to grow emotionally.
SagittariusIt can be a winning time in a quiet way, dear Sagittarius, as you can tackle pretty much anything that comes your way. A steady instead of rushed pace seems the key today. You’re emotionally geared towards the smaller details of your life, and you’re more invested in the practical things you do or the services you render. Ideas are particularly innovative for pursuing your work or achieving your goals. The need to bring some order to your environment continues to be strong, and you have an easier time getting things done. There are fewer distractions to deal with, making it quite natural to focus and concentrate.
CapricornAim to seek out ways to refresh and revitalize your life in areas that have become a little too dull, dear Capricorn. Pacing yourself, however, is the best use of today’s easygoing energies. Creative expression comes more naturally with the Moon’s transit of your solar firth house. Small changes can lead to significant improvements, particularly related to your creative world and romantic life. Whether they’re physical or mental adjustments, you seek to grow and learn. Others see you in a positive light, and you may be in the mood to entertain, enjoy yourself, and let your hair down. Your timing is right, and communications seem to go over well. You’re likely to find the most inspiration through your interactions with others today.
AquariusToday’s energies are good for seeking more peace and comfort, dear Aquarius. It’s an important time in the natural lunar cycle, and it’s about centering yourself and experiencing some quiet before pushing forward. This is another day that emphasizes emotions, personal matters, family, home, and familiar places. There may be opportunities to repair, heal, and nurture yourself. Feeling content with what you have can allow you to regroup. Even so, you’re inclined to be productive, particularly in thought or memories that inspire you. It’s important to let ideas grow and play out in your mind. Improving your home life can be a strong interest these days, and you can have particularly original ideas for doing so.
PiscesTransits today tend to stoke your generous spirit, dear Pisces, and the day holds much potential for expressing yourself easily and warmly. New ways of relating can figure strongly, and even though they’re not necessarily radical, it’s refreshing to connect differently. Relationship repairs are favored if they’re needed. You may feel motivated by the feedback you receive now, and gratefulness with others can help you bond. Today’s Moon transit encourages you to keep your mind stimulated. Learning and sharing are in stronger focus, or you’re more invested in these things. You need the room to explore, discover, create, and come to your own conclusions.
