Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first half of the day, you benefit from figuring things out one step at a time, dear Aries. You might release a burden. You might repair a relationship by talking things through, or you may work with someone to solve a problem. Still, you tend to look for ways to keep yourself busy. With Mercury currently in your partnership sector, you’re generally in good shape and perhaps have the upper hand in negotiations. Your curiosity about others and desire to communicate in your relationships are notable. However, Mercury heads toward an opposition with Chiron later today, and something communicated can play on your vulnerabilities. It might lead to a breakthrough in understanding if you’re open to learning about what emerges now. Even so, it can be tricky, or you could feel criticized, even if others are not meaning to be pushy with you. You may want to take a step back from problem areas so you can react more mindfully.
TaurusThe day holds promise for feeling a real sense of inner peace and balance, dear Taurus. You might get the chance to talk about difficult or complex emotional matters successfully. You could also team up to handle a financial problem. As the day advances, it may not be as easy to address problem areas. If you’re persistent, you might be able to accept or resolve a relationship matter that has stressed you. However, there’s a tendency for you to feel unappreciated or slighted in spots as Mercury heads into opposition with Chiron. Things may feel in limbo or undecided, which can undermine some of your endeavors if you don’t nip it in the bud. The day may bring an uncomfortable revelation or extra sensitive emotions, particularly regarding work or workload. You are especially sensitive to imbalances of almost any kind today, but particularly in your personal space.
GeminiYou might make important connections with others today, dear Gemini. You could successfully move ahead with a project that involves teamwork. Romance, adventure, learning, transportation, communications, and creativity are in the spotlight. A potentially healing conversation might occur with someone special. People seem open to reason and willing to see the other side of the situation. Still, you can be especially sensitive to imbalances in your social or love life as the day advances. It may be that something communicated touches a nerve or sets off your insecurities. It’s important to wait out coming to conclusions–reserve judgment, if possible. It’s also a good idea to examine what seems to be triggering vulnerable spots, as you stand to learn a lot about yourself through interactions with others and their reactions. While conversations can be tricky and perhaps a bit messy, they might also lead to greater understanding.
CancerYour ability to listen and make anyone feel interesting and at ease is strong today, dear Cancer. It’s a fine time for solving problems, bonding through supportive conversations, and a better understanding of work or home projects. You might find out some truly useful information today. Mercury heads into opposition with Chiron as the day advances, and communications and thoughts or memories can open up old emotional issues and challenges. Particularly if you’ve recently brushed aside some of your deeper feelings, you could feel blindsided by others’ comments. It may not be intuitive to interact in ways that help relationships grow, as we could be defensive if we feel judged. Even so, you’re also in a high position to learn from these matters–they might point you in the direction of what is most in need of repair and healing.
LeoIt can be a prime day for learning more about the people in your life, dear Leo, and for enjoying and appreciating a special someone. Partnering or pairing up is in favor. You might discover new and more satisfying ways to express yourself, and communications can be playful, romantic, and useful as well. You might want to take a break to refresh and rejuvenate yourself by either doing the things you most enjoy or bypassing the things that leave you feeling drained. As the day progresses, you may need to temporarily back away from a problem to let your mind rest and your intuition engage. Distractions can lead to a frustrating state of absent-mindedness otherwise. With Mercury about to oppose Chiron, there can be some touchiness. What you or a friend is interpreting from your communications can be heavily influenced by insecurities. You might receive a wake-up call about a project or idea that needs some more refinement before going forward, and this can certainly be helpful. It can be frustrating if others challenge your views or opinions. Even so, you might discover that you can learn something valuable from your differences.
VirgoYou can come up with some great ideas about making money, doing business, and home improvement today, dear Virgo. You might gain knowledge that helps your financial picture today. Aim to be ready to make the most of a situation now. Confronting a problem may be your best bet rather than sidestepping it. Later today, it may be a little difficult to count on others in spots. You can be a bit sensitive, particularly if others challenge your ideas, as it can feel like criticism. Worries about money or complicated power dynamics in a relationship can be a soft spot, and there might be an eruption of feelings that are expressed poorly. However, whatever emerges now can lead to growth and better understanding. Even if a comment irritates, it may very well jumpstart some creative thinking, leading to new insights.
LibraYou could come across information that benefits you greatly today, dear Libra, and ideas are inventive. Discovering a new passion, interest, hobby, or love may be in focus now. One-on-one conversations seem to be the most productive now. Being direct and honest can be a little sticky now, but also very relieving and revealing. As the day advances, a disconnect with someone or a feeling that you’re not especially appreciated can occur. Mercury, currently transiting your sign, is heading into opposition with Chiron. The tendency to speak from the head instead of the heart or saying things too matter-of-factly can produce some challenges. Mercury is intelligent and intellectual, and with its challenging aspect, something you say can be misunderstood. You might appear critical or judgmental when you’re merely playing with ideas. Or, if you feel overwhelmed or burdened, you could too quickly jump to the wrong conclusions. Aim to learn from any differences or hurt feelings that might occur today.
ScorpioNew information can put you ahead along business or economic lines today, dear Scorpio. You may have an ace up your sleeve or excellent instincts when it comes to money and value. An open mind and heart help you grow and understand yourself and your personal relationships. As the day advances, it may be best to be a little more attentive and vigilant with your work or routines since small worries or fears could interfere with clear thinking. If a misunderstanding occurs, try to resolve it quickly and honestly, rather than offering lengthy explanations. With Mercury about to oppose Chiron, words and actions may be triggering, despite even our best efforts. You’re more comfortable observing and absorbing the happenings around you than contributing these days, which helps. You’re in good shape for contemplation and behind-the-scenes study or work. If buried resentments surface, consider it to be revealing so that you can work through the problems.
SagittariusThe first half of the day is good for cooperative efforts, dear Sagittarius, especially where it concerns communications. Relationships are a little spicier, and you might inspire somebody with an idea or a unique perspective on a matter. You might brainstorm, collaborate, and share ideas and plans, perhaps making them better or simply enjoying the process. As the day advances, Mercury heads into opposition with Chiron. Feelings can be hurt relatively easily with words, and choosing them with more care might save a few problems. The tendency is for a disconnect between the emotions and intellect. Whether we’re overdoing the logic while ignoring emotional sensibilities, or the opposite, there can be some misunderstandings. If this can’t be avoided, it can turn into an opportunity to better understand yourself and others.
CapricornConnections you make today can be rousing, dear Capricorn. It’s a good time to do some further thinking on private matters. You may be privy to information that others don’t know about, and this gives you an ace up your sleeve. You might benefit from a gift or enjoy giving to someone, and this feels great. As the day advances, however, you may be best to watch your words. You could feel challenged about something close to your heart. Avoid a defensive reaction, even if someone touches a nerve. The best approach is to understand why certain things make you feel uncomfortable and learn from differences. With Mercury heading into opposition with Chiron, misunderstandings are often about words triggering problem areas. It makes the most sense to get to the bottom of the matter rather than address only the symptoms.
AquariusBenefits come from reaching out and pushing yourself a little out of your comfort zone in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. Your ability to take things as they come is attractive, and your positive attitude tends to attract attention. Problem-solving is in favor. Even so, as the day advances, touchiness is a real possibility. You are especially attracted to meaningful, unusual, or different topics with Mercury in your solar ninth house these days. While it’s a primarily easy transit, energies are tricky with communications now as Mercury moves toward an opposition with Chiron. Something expressed now can challenge you or seem hurtful. If you sense you need more time to connect confidently with an opinion or idea, then take it. Differences are likely to be glaring just for now, but they can offer learning experiences. It’s an excellent time to see flaws and differences more clearly, opening up a chance to repair problem areas.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, you’re likely to enjoy gluing the pieces together on a mental level, and feeling the satisfaction for it, dear Pisces. You are relationship-focused today. It’s a good time for healthy conversations, particularly about goals and strategies. Extending help or support may be in focus, and it’s rewarding. However, sensitivities seem to increase as the day advances. With Mercury currently transiting your solar eighth house, it’s a generally good time to bring more common sense to finances or relationships. You tend to look more deeply into a matter before taking off with it–you’re very often in observer mode. However, with Mercury and Chiron heading into opposition, there can be some tendency to misunderstand one another. You may feel you’re walking on eggshells with people around you, and it’s easier to recognize the flaws in a situation than it is to see what’s working. The best way to manage this energy is to avoid picking sides or thinking in black-or-white terms. Considering individual truths is your best bet. If you’re tempted to use this time to get a matter off your chest, be aware that words can come out messily, or people take things the wrong way.
