Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today is strong for feeling you’re taking a step in the right direction, dear Aries. You’re productive, not necessarily due to hard work, but because you enjoy yourself as you get things done. Cooperation helps your outlook and gives you a clearer sense of your goals. Still, the Moon’s move into your sector of home and family can bring on a craving for more familiarity. It’s a time of the lunar month for reconnecting with places, people, and situations or feelings that are comfortable and familiar. But later today, there can be some nagging feelings that you’re not stimulated enough. Watch that restlessness doesn’t lead to wastefulness, particularly with money.
TaurusTransits this morning help you see the benefits of current projects and boost your overall outlook, dear Taurus. You’re likely to crave a change of pace or a break from the usual routine. You may be teaching in some capacity now, or you could be learning something new and different that’s inspiring. A new channel for expressing yourself might open up. The Moon moves into your communications sector, accelerating the pace. There can be some feelings that you need to rush through things later today. Take the space you need and allow your moods to settle before taking on important work. Consider letting a partner or good friend to help you, even though your first instinct tends to be to rely on only yourself. Watch for abruptness in speech and movement.
GeminiEarly today makes it easy to cooperate with others, dear Gemini, but you also seek a little more meaning from your pursuits or relationships than usual, and you’re happy to see signs of improvement and growth. It’s a good time to tap into your intuition. Radiating an expectation of success with people you love does wonders for you now, but so can some introspection. Watch for hastiness later today when you might feel pressured to get something done quickly. This is especially important with people in your life–watch for misunderstandings. The Moon’s move out of your sign and into your resources sector today helps settle your emotions, however, and it’s a good time to benefit from some calm or familiar, grounding activities.
CancerThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Cancer, and you come alive emotionally, craving more stimulation and recognition. The morning is good for dreaming up big ideas that help boost your confidence, particularly on social levels and related to your interests or studies. You are more invested in your relationships today, and it makes sense to approach your day with an open mind and heart. Do watch for impatience later today when the temptation to push something is premature. You could feel rushed or pressured and conflicted between attending to personal or family needs and dealing with social needs. Try to listen to your own rhythms and natural energy levels.
LeoEarly today, others tend to support you or let you do what needs doing today, dear Leo. You’re inclined to draw in the right people or resources to advance your goals. For best results, widen your comfort zone, help others, and make the first move. Graciousness is likely to be returned in kind. Discovering creative solutions for practical matters can be a theme. Still, watch for impatience with words and actions later today. You may want to answer to your natural rhythms and pace, but you could be pressured into feeling you need to force an issue or move more quickly on something you’re not yet prepared for. The Moon’s move into your privacy sector today can stir a real need for more time to yourself.
VirgoAim to try something new instead of sticking only with the routine, which will help your creativity flow early today, dear Virgo. You are holding yourself well and getting your message across. Opportunities on creative levels are likely to emerge now, and enthusiasm levels can skyrocket. Later today, watch for impatience. If you’re feeling restless, listen to any signals that you need a change of pace and make it happen in constructive ways. It can be difficult to deal with anything that feels restrictive or stodgy now. The Moon’s move into your social sector today is a happy one, although you may feel a little guilty initially if you’re no longer as interested in putting effort into your work or current projects.
LibraEarly today, you continue to feel motivated by and confident about your personal life, dear Libra. A sense of inner well-being can come from making plans for the future that inspire growth and hope. Later today, you can feel some impatience, however. Mars in your sign these days can certainly energize you, but Mars forms a minor challenging aspect with Uranus, and you can feel this as restlessness. Your tolerance for situations that feel restrictive is low. Others may be introducing changes that don’t sit well with you, as you’re intent on following your own personal rhythms and prefer to avoid answering to others’ demands just now. Avoid taking on too much, too quickly. The Moon’s move into your solar tenth house brings on a stronger need to buckle down and get things done.
ScorpioYour most creative inclinations come to the fore in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. Share instead of taking on everything yourself for the best results now. Later today, it can be easy for others to hit a nerve with you with a Mars-Uranus aspect in play, affecting your privacy and partnership sectors. Past frustrations can be triggered by someone’s behavior, an issue of inequality, or outside pressures to get something done more quickly than is reasonable given time constraints. The Moon moves into your adventure and spirit sector, stirring your desire for a change of scenery. Aim to avoid scattering your forces and, as much as possible, answer to your own instincts and rhythms.
SagittariusYou might decide to revive an old project, or an endeavor opens up and shows signs of moving forward, dear Sagittarius. With Jupiter retrograde, past projects may be more interesting and worthwhile than brand new ones. It’s a beautiful time for strategies and plans for improvement. You are gaining the inspiration to pursue your ambitions. Later today, the pace can feel a little rushed as Mars and Uranus clash in your social and work sectors. You could have a difficult time taking directions, preferring to answer to your own authority. Avoid shortcuts that can be costly. Find ways to set your own pace, as you can be feeling temporarily out of sync with others’ energy levels.
CapricornYou can feel quite excited to do things a little differently today, dear Capricorn. It can be a time for extending or receiving an invitation. It’s a potentially excellent day for catching some inspiration, particularly if you’re looking at past projects. You might revive an endeavor or even a friendship through communications. It’s a time for growing something worthwhile to you, and you can feel motivated to impress and improve. Others are supportive of you, and projects can be expanding or capturing your interest. Later today, you might feel some pressure to follow some rules. Try not to let this discrepancy drive your behavior or keep you in a state of restlessness. Focus on what needs doing, and resolve to spend more time doing your own thing when it’s truly possible. Centering yourself can bring you to inventive places. The Moon’s move into your partnership sector finds you seeking social stimulation or companionship.
AquariusMemories are precious and beneficial today, dear Aquarius. A new way of looking at an old problem boosts you. Alternatively, something previously hidden, such as an untapped resource, can reveal itself to you, and this is a personal gain. A general desire for harmony keeps people in better spirits than usual early today, but you want to reach beyond your usual boundaries on emotional levels. Later today, watch that emotional restlessness doesn’t drive your behavior. Mars and Uranus are in minor conflict, which can stir up frustration with restrictive circumstances and people. Haste truly makes waste right now. Aim to take things easy and remind yourself that you have time! Give others space and do the same for yourself.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your sector of joy for a couple of days, dear Pisces, and you’re focusing on pleasures and enjoyment more than usual. There is a distinctly cooperative feel to early day. You’re in the mood for something a little different than the usual fare, and learning something new can be exciting. Past projects and interests can hold some real appeal right now as you see something in a new light. Later today, you crave mental stimulation and could be feeling underwhelmed in this department. Watch that inner restlessness doesn’t lead to impatience or taking shortcuts that may eventually cost you time and energy. As well, be a little more guarded with what you say or how you express yourself, as impatience with things can be translated as impatience with people.
