Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 8th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

These days are excellent for focus and determination in your career, dear Aries. It’s also a good period generally for making necessary changes in relationships with a parent or boss. If there is a negative attitude or bad habit that you need to kick, this may be the time to do so. Patience wins the day, although you could be feeling in no mood to conform to others’ wishes this morning. As the day moves forward, your patience increases. Decisions made today, particularly involving relationships, money, and higher education, tend to be long term and significant, and perhaps quite practical or even overly so. There may be a sobering moment now that pushes you forward. With a New Moon occurring tomorrow, however, this is not necessarily a good time to launch something important to you. Making resolutions is just fine, especially if it’s about taking a hard look at what kinds of attitudes and situations that need to go before moving on.

Taurus

Taurus

There may be some confusion about a friendship or group alliance this morning, dear Taurus, but if you’re open to learning from others and from your experiences, it’s a good time for understanding and accepting differences, and getting to a better place for it. Being realistic about your financial situation is important now. Whether it’s good or bad, knowing where you stand is empowering; avoiding the issue only serves to undermine you. Know that there are solutions to any problem you face. Consider wise counsel. A loan or mortgage could come through, but whatever does emerge now comes with increased responsibility. There are solutions to problems to be found from circumstances today, and they’re very practical ones. It’s a strong day for applying yourself to something and working solidly. The New Moon tomorrow can alter your focus or goals, but today is strong for realizing what needs to go, particularly related to excess pleasure, in order for you to move forward in a healthier manner.

Gemini

Gemini

With Venus aligning with Saturn in your opposing sign today, dear Gemini, it’s important to find way to appreciate simple, traditional patterns rather than trying to push for something new. Work on improving trouble areas instead. You might feel caged in, limited, or restricted by others right now, but it’s also a good time for being “in the know”, which is ultimately empowering. A responsibility to or with a partner can be part of the picture now. You’re more able to accept things for what they are, and you may be facing realities about relationships, or experiencing a demand from a significant other. A Sun-Chiron sextile this morning points to a chance to improve a relationship with a boss, parent, or someone in a position of authority. You may be assuming a leadership role in an important area of your life.

Cancer

Cancer

This morning, you may be getting somewhere with a partner, dear Cancer, particularly related to sharing your goals, ideas, and beliefs. You might learn something new about what someone important to you believes, and while there can be differences that are surprising, you can most certainly learn from them. On the job, show your reliable side. You could be gaining respect for the services you provide or for your responsible attitude. You may have to face a reality regarding a work or health matter, or you could be feeling overburdened or stretched to the limit. However, this is also a time for getting your expectations to a realistic place, and this allows you to better plan your next move. Circumstances occurring now are clearing the way towards more capability in work, health, chores, and routines. Love matters can also strike a serious tone today. While you could feel pressured to make a decision, with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, today is best approached as a time to put something behind you rather than the start of something brand new.

Leo

Leo

This morning can bring some important information to light, dear Leo, particularly related to work and research. You can feel better about yourself for accepting a limitation and moving on to something more deserving of your attention. Be as realistic as possible about what an important person in your life is capable of, as this can help you to trust them more. If you feel the weight of a responsibility now, consider what you are willing to work hard for, or whether the goal is worth the sacrifices. If you allow yourself to be realistic about what a person can or cannot do, feels or does not feel, then you can ultimately put more faith and trust in that person. Loyalty and reliability are qualities that are most important to express right now. A serious discussion or revelation can occur now, and although it can renew your focus, it can also bring quite a bit of dissatisfaction to light in a relationship, particularly a romantic one, or with a creative project. Even so, this is about moving forward – coming to a conclusion and going with it. The day’s energies favor deliberate moves and strategy. It’s not the time to jump into something that you haven’t given much thought to. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, and this can serve to shift your focus.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

The morning’s events can stimulate the need to accept a situation, or person, for its limitations, dear Virgo, and this can be empowering. In fact, the whole day has a similar theme to it, as we are better off seeing something for its realities, allowing us to adjust our plans accordingly, which leads to a stronger sense of what we can and can’t accomplish. A responsibility or commitment to family might need your attention. While you may be feeling the weight of your responsibilities strongly now, there can be progress made on the home front, and if you are working at or on the home, you are more interested in applying yourself to something that will have value over the long-term. Work done now can be especially fruitful down the road, although brand new beginnings are best saved until after the New Moon that occurs tomorrow. Today is strong for identifying priorities, particularly surrounding affairs of the heart and family matters.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Today is strong for recognizing problem areas in your life, dear Libra, and making plans to deal with them. It’s empowering, although a little sobering at first. There may be a reality to face when it comes to a learning or communications endeavor. You might receive or give very practical advice and learn much in the process. Wisdom may be found in traditional methods, and you may be quite focused on finding solutions to long-standing problems. You might receive news of an important learning endeavor, or circumstances may be such that you need to become more organized and efficient with your work and daily life. Transportation or communications issues might change or require special attention. Limits or restrictions may be in order. This is a good time for seeing what areas of life need some slimming down in order to go forward a lighter, freer person.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Recent efforts towards restructuring and organizing your life can show signs of paying off today, dear Scorpio. You are exceptionally security-minded at this time, affording you the opportunity to see where you can slim down and eliminate excess in your life, particularly related to finances. This is a day for embracing practical realities, although you might also be facing the cost of extravagances. With self-control and focus, you can make real improvements to your life now and going forward. It’s a good time for taking a hard look at your finances, including any larger purchase you are considering making, with realism. For some of you, a demand or responsibility can emerge in a close partnership. You also have an eye for practical details and sight for situations and objects that will last over the long term. However, with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, it’s best to focus on purging and simplifying than on new commitments. Taking control of your life requires time and energy, and you are in a better position to see what you are willing to sacrifice in order to achieve your goals.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

With Venus and Saturn in alignment in your own sign today, dear Sagittarius, this is a time for seeing your capabilities realistically, instead of over- or under-estimating them, and this empowers you. With patience, this can improve your chances of success in whatever you set your mind on doing. Some of the tension you have been feeling of late can dissipate as you take a clearer look at things. There could also be an important revelation about your finances, a love relationship, or friendship. Be sure that you don’t assume more responsibility than you should, and while it’s appropriate to take responsibilities on, it’s not about taking on too much. With this Saturnine influence on your sign and Jupiter, your ruler, now retrograde, try not to take yourself too seriously now. A New Moon that occurs tomorrow is likely to shift your focus to building, producing, and acquiring.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This morning, good energy is with you for honing communications skills, dear Capricorn. Retrograde Mercury moves into your sign today as well, and this can prompt you to take a closer look at recent projects and your own personal goals in order to improve them. Later today, there may be a reality to face about a dream or fantasy you’ve been entertaining. As a result, you are in the position to know where you stand, making life a little more predictable. You do well with the grounding energy with us today. Personal responsibilities become clear. You can have a stronger understanding of where you stand and a sense of what comes next as a result. You have an eye for what really matters today, and are happier than usual to part with things that you don’t really need. This comes at a good time, as this is the day before a New Moon in your sign. It’s appropriate to focus on letting go of those things that are weighing you down so that you can better use the opportunities that a New Moon in your sign brings to start fresh and turn over a new leaf.

Aquarius

Aquarius

With Venus and Saturn aligning in your social sector today, dear Aquarius, you might enjoy coming to the aid of a friend, or following through on a promise. This sector also rules hopes, ideals, and networks. While there may be a reality to face, this is also a time for seeing things more clearly and getting a better sense of what is realizable and worthy of your time and attention. For some, social or romantic opportunities may be found through associates, group associations, friends, and networking. A question of accountability or commitment involving a friend or business goal can be in focus. Be careful that you are not allowing fears get in the way of healthy relations. The chance to improve skills or to learn a subject in a more formal way can emerge for some of you. You might also be learning important things about the past, and possibly discovering a talent or resource that you previously overlooked now.

Pisces

Pisces

This morning, pay special attention to your relationships with friends, dear Pisces, as friends have something special to reveal or show you. Today, a new responsibility can emerge, or the awareness of one! This can be a pleasant or beneficial one. A boss, parent, or teacher could be leaning on you, looking upon you favorably, or encouraging you to shine. There may be social or romantic opportunities through career and business connections for some of you now. Being conservative, realistic, discreet, and disciplined when it comes to business or public affairs is especially important today. While there may be sobering or serious circumstances today, they clear the path to move forward and to grow. Foundations laid down now can be very enduring. However, avoid beginning an entirely new project today – wait until after the New Moon tomorrow when new information and interests can come to light.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 8th

by Rick Levine

 

General Horoscope

Love might seem scarce today, but we may be pleasantly surprised if we slow down and look beyond surface appearances. It’s tempting to show our displeasure by withdrawing emotionally as the austere Venus-Saturn conjunction resonates through our lives. Blending the warmth of Venus with the coldness of Saturn requires hard work. Meanwhile, the Moon’s shift into goal-oriented Capricorn at 10:06 am EST confirms that there are no shortcuts to happiness.

Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19

Giving someone the cold shoulder isn’t nice, even if you want to send a message of disapproval today. Withdrawing support isn’t helpful if your response is actually based on your current fear of the unknown. It’s more productive to engage in an honest discussion about the cause of your concerns without throwing any blame around. However, don’t expect the tension to dissipate immediately. A river cuts through rock not because of its power but because of its persistence.

Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20

It’s no fun feeling like you’re being left out of all the action today. It’s as if there’s an emotional chill in the atmosphere now that affectionate Venus is burdened by the weight of karmic Saturn. Although you might push back against the resistance at first, the smartest way to turn an uncomfortable situation into a sweet one is to let go of control. Relinquish some of your independence voluntarily; it’s a small price to pay in the big scheme of things and can improve your chances of feeling like you’re a part of the pack.

Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20

You may be required to make a tough choice today, especially if you’re not one to sign on to a commitment easily. You could be quite convincing now as you reveal your desire for greater intimacy in a relationship, but you might still feel the urge to run for the hills if someone gets too close to your heart. Thankfully, you’re not doomed to repeat the same old patterns just because you’re worried about getting hurt. Mustering up the courage to push past your fears is the secret to your happiness.

Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22

Gaining support from a coworker is tricky business today, but you won’t know what you might receive unless you ask for it. Even if you can’t imagine that anyone will actually go the extra mile on your behalf, taking a calculated risk could turn out in your favor. Don’t scare yourself by assuming the current situation demands an all-or-nothing approach. Instead, be cautious and systematically establish common ground as the basis of a solid working relationship. You’re not alone; let others nurture you the way you would nurture them.

Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22

It could be awkward to engage in a casual conversation today because your feelings might be exposed, and you’re worried that you won’t get what you want. Ironically, your unspoken concerns could manifest into a self-fulfilling prophesy, especially if you choose to withdraw from social interactions. Luckily, you have the resolve to overcome the negativity of your own fears. Turn things around quickly by changing your attitude and opening your heart.

Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22

It may be disheartening if you don’t receive the respect you deserve from a loved one as vulnerable Venus bumps into judgmental Saturn in your 4th House of Home and Family. You’ve done everything right, yet your ego can trick you into believing you should be more appreciated than you are today. Don’t waste your time dreaming about receiving accolades and standing ovations. The best reward is the deep satisfaction that comes from within when you know you’ve done your very best.

Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22

Too much resistance from a friend or coworker doesn’t give you an excuse to sulk and brood today. Don’t isolate yourself from your companions just because you think that everything isn’t copacetic between you. It may be tempting to hide your feelings from those closest to you, but this avoidance tactic is not a satisfying solution. Confronting the shortcomings of a relationship might put you back in touch with what you admire about each other the most.

Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21

You’re not inclined to put too much effort into sharing your feelings today. In fact, you’re quite practical when it comes to allocating your time and energy now that resourceful Venus joins forces with austere Saturn in your 2nd House of Resources. You may be very straightforward about cutting back on frivolous pleasures to assure you will have what you need on a rainy day. Naturally, exercising caution makes logical sense at first. However, there’s an unlimited supply of love in the universe, so you can always splurge when your heart is involved.

Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21

The time has come to make a crucial decision about how to spend or save your money. But this choice goes much deeper than being a simple cash flow problem because the underlying issue is more likely about your self-esteem. When you realize all the skills you have to offer, your earning power could grow beyond your current expectations. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you’re worth any less than you actually are. Real wealth is not about your income potential; it’s about appreciating what is already yours.

Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19

There’s no reason to suffer in silence today if you’re willing to face an old fear with a fierce new attitude. Your emotional isolation is probably more voluntary than you care to admit now that the sobering Venus-Saturn conjunction influences your 12th House of Invisibility. It helps to acknowledge that the current situation is not the same as what happened in your past. You can choose to respond defensively, based on an old habit, or you can live in the present. There’s no question about it, being an optimist is a much more empowering strategy than being a pessimist.

Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18

Don’t rush to the conclusion that your friends are putting you down today when your limited perceptions may be contributing to your worries. In fact, you could be so sensitive now that you imagine trouble where there isn’t any. Unfortunately, it might be too late to sidestep a dance with discomfort. Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to project your previous failures onto others; discuss your concerns without pointing fingers at anyone. A heart-to-heart discussion may be all that’s needed to put things right.

Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20

Unfortunately, there’s no room on your busy schedule to surrender to your desires now. Instead, you must maintain an emotionally cool and competent presence at work while flirty Venus hooks up with responsible Saturn in your 10th House of Career. There’s no time to waste energy complaining about what you’re missing as you strive to achieve your long-term goals. Seeking personal satisfaction can wait; practicing patience today is your best strategy for realizing your dreams tomorrow.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 7th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

This morning’s energy is spunky and edgy, dear Aries. While changes may certainly be in order, watch that you are acting true to your own heart and not simply reacting to others. The Moon continues to stimulate your adventurous side today, but Jupiter turns retrograde today, and this points to some natural waning of misplaced enthusiasm. Until May, Jupiter is retrograde in your work and health sector and this can tame your enthusiasm just enough that you’re seeing these things more realistically. Try not to take on more projects now, and instead focus on what you’ve already begun. Edit, refine, and improve your work projects and self-care endeavors rather than taking on more. Today, good energy is building for trust in your close relationships.

Taurus

Taurus

With Jupiter turning retrograde in your solar fifth house today, dear Taurus, this is a time of realigning your thinking and your plans, particularly those along the lines of creative projects, romance, entertainment, and children. Jupiter is retrograde until May 9th. You could experience some waning enthusiasm towards a romance or creative endeavor in the next while. It’s time for some tweaking, and a different perspective on these matters, and is best viewed as a time to catch your breath. There is no need to put things on hold. Some de-emphasis of your pursuit of pleasures/entertainment can be practical now. Romantic prospects are still very good, although in the coming weeks, you might be refining your approach to getting what (and who) you want in love. This can also be a good time for reviewing your financial responsibilities. This morning, your attention can be divided, and you could find it rather difficult to concentrate. Aim to tone down rough edges.

Gemini

Gemini

Jupiter has been bringing strong and enthusiastic energy to your domestic projects and home life recently, dear Gemini, and today Jupiter turns retrograde until May 9th. This signals a time for reassessing matters – for making tweaks to your plans – particularly related to family, home, and partnership. Some waning of enthusiasm can be experienced as you adjust to this energy, but any slowdowns encountered now actually offer you the chance to look at your plans from a different perspective so that you can move forward with them with more confidence at a later date. Family life will continue to reward you for many months to come, but some de-emphasis and review is appropriate and beneficial now. This morning favors new approaches and flexibility. If you can avoid the tendency to move too fast and to live on your nerves (or only in your brain), you can come to very interesting, and possibly prophetic, insights. Keep your feet on the ground.

Cancer

Cancer

Jupiter turns retrograde today, dear Cancer, and will continue to move in retrograde motion until May 9th. While there continues to be good energy for learning, studies, communications, and transportation in your life, some de-emphasis, review, or toning down in these areas is appropriate and beneficial now. It may be wise to slow down when it comes to taking on new interests and projects, and to focus on enjoying and developing what you already have in place. It’s not the time to abandon projects, but rather for making refinements, and this may also be true for work and health endeavors. Today, there may be cantankerous energies surrounding a partnership or parent/boss, but a sense of moving forward is with you. Avoid quick reactions.

Leo

Leo

Jupiter turns retrograde today, dear Leo, and will continue retrograde motion until May 9th. This yearly event points to a need to reassess some of our projects, or to work on developing existing projects rather than taking on new ones. You might experience what seem like turnarounds or waning enthusiasm in the areas of finances, creativity, or romance. However, as you adjust to the retrograde period, you’ll recognize that this is a strong period for reassessing these matters more realistically, for easing up on spending, and for more realistically considering how much time and energy you have for your projects and recreation. This is about restoring balance in your life. This morning requires patience, particularly regarding opinions, directions, and instructions. Something you hear might stimulate a new way of thinking, so don’t totally disregard communications now. Simply take some time before reacting.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Jupiter turns retrograde today, dear Virgo, and while it continues to transit your sign and stimulate enthusiasm and optimism, some of this is now turning inward. It’s a good time to tame excess and overreaching. If you’ve been overdoing the seeking of freedom, this is the time to rethink and make adjustments that bring you a little closer to earth. This morning, you could be feeling a little on edge, particularly related to creative projects and intimate relationships, and especially if you don’t know where you stand in a situation or with someone. Try to remain flexible and avoid sticking stubbornly to old methods. The Moon continues to transit your home and family sector, all day, and the need to stick with familiar or secure and safe situations actually serves to replenish emotions and heal you in small but significant ways.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Jupiter turns retrograde in your privacy sector today, dear Libra, and will continue to move in retrograde until May 9th. This can be a time when you have much going on behind the scenes. Your faith in your own instincts may not be as strong as it has been, or you could struggle a little with your faith in life itself to meet your needs. This is a temporary and in fact necessary process that allows you to reassess where it is you want to be, where you’re headed, and whether your connection to your spiritual side is in need of some nurturing. In fact, as you adjust to this energy, you may find that coming out of your protective shell more often can be beneficial. You may need to slow down taking on new mental interests and learning projects so that you can come to a better balance in your life. Today, there can be difficulties concentrating in the morning as you may feel pulled in a number of different directions, and it may be unclear where you’re headed. As the day advances, you might find that focusing on the moment is best and worrying too much about your next step can be a waste of energy when you are uncertain of the final destination.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Jupiter turns retrograde today, dear Scorpio, and will remain in retrograde motion until May 9th. This annual period is good for review and taming of extravagances. For you, Jupiter retrograde periods always affect money matters, and this year, also influences your friends and goals. If you have too many ideas or projects on your plate, this is a good time to see which ones are most viable. Aim to pare things down. Some of you could be reassessing your involvement with a friend or group or simply toning down your social life a little. It’s a good time to look at spending and business matters in a new way. This morning, there can be some chaotic moments as things may not go exactly as planned. Know your limits and respect them.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Your ruler, Jupiter, which is currently moving through your professional zone, turns retrograde today, dear Sagittarius. You may need to curb your enthusiasm a little on the professional front now – just enough to gain new perspective and to focus on projects that are doable. Even so, there can be a pleasant feeling of letting things unfold naturally, and faith that they will work out in the end. You are seeing your capabilities for what they are, rather than over or under-estimating them. You might decide to review, edit, and perfect current projects rather than taking on new ones just for the time being, as you may have been sensing recently that you’ve taken on too much. Enjoy the moment, but capture it as well so that you can carry it forward. This is not a time for actively expanding, but rather for reaping the rewards of recent successes, and focusing your energy on those projects already underway. Generally speaking as well, this is a natural time for easing up on excesses. The Moon continues to transit your sign all day, however, and some self-pampering today is quite appropriate. It’s a time of the lunar month for recognizing needs for nurture. This morning’s Sun-Uranus square can overstimulate, so watch for too-quick moves, particularly with money and love.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

With Jupiter retrograde today until May 9th, dear Capricorn, it’s a natural time for adjusting expectations to better match energy levels and time. This is a good time for turning inward and getting in touch with what truly motivates and enthuses you, particularly related to belief systems, intellectual pursuits, and long-range goals. Some of the faith you’ve been nurturing may seem to drop away, but only just enough for you to see your plans in a different, more realistic light. Jupiter will continue to excite your interest in venturing out and broadening your horizons until October. While it’s retrograde, you’re more inclined to think over and review current projects and ideas, however, than actively pursue new ones. Today, a Sun-Uranus square can overstimulate you this morning, particularly if you have been holding on to frustrations that beg release. It can be difficult to accept restrictive conditions right now.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Mental tension can continue this morning, dear Aquarius, with the Sun in hard aspect to your ruler, Uranus, in mutable houses. Avoid overthinking, but also sidestep impulsive moves. Find a balance now. This can in fact be a good time to see areas of your life that have become dysfunctional and that are best left behind you. With Jupiter turning retrograde today, you may need to redirect some of your energy away from a partnership or a focus on others if this has been excessive. In the coming months, until May 9th, there is good energy for reviewing, reassessing, and moderating debt. It’s also a time for developing current projects rather than taking on new ones. Think in terms of correcting excesses. If you’ve been overspending or over-borrowing, or otherwise too dependent on others for your happiness, then this is a time for bringing things back into balance.

Pisces

Pisces

A Sun-Uranus challenge this morning can put the pressure on, dear Pisces, but it’s better not to rush anything right now. If you haven’t been recognizing a need to make changes in your practical affairs or social life, there can be some tension experienced today, but also an important awakening to new ideas and possibilities for improving your methods, income, and relationships. Today, Jupiter begins a four-month retrograde period. This annual event tends to affect your professional goals and aspirations, and this year, also your partnerships and negotiations. This is a time for taking a more realistic look at current projects and for developing these rather than taking on more. A partnership or friendship may need a little breathing room and the chance to unfold naturally. Jupiter retrograde and direct periods honor the natural ebb and flow of things – there are times to push forward and times to slow down and review.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, December 29th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

A partner may be a little too impatient or even aggressive in stance today, dear Aries, and then brood or withhold later today! Of course, somewhere in between would be ideal, but a little difficult to get there, especially as Mercury and Mars challenge one another, and with Mars your ruler, irritation is likely. Nevertheless, you can also choose to use frustrations as motivators to work on something on your own or to set your own pace, and you might find you thoroughly enjoy the time you take to do so.

Taurus

Taurus

There is a tendency to rush, push, and nitpick today, dear Taurus, with a Mercury-Mars conflict in the first half of the day. Chances are that a difference of opinion can bother you more than it would normally because you feel rushed in other areas of life. Try to pull back on the pressure and don’t overload yourself with things to do. With the Moon entering your romance and “play” sector this afternoon, you are likely to feel re-energized. It’s a time for spontaneity and enjoyment, but a Venus-Pluto conflict late tonight can point to a love dilemma, suspicion, or concern.

Gemini

Gemini

This morning, remember the old adage that haste makes waste, dear Gemini. Be particularly careful when it comes to expressing yourself with a lover or with someone about an intimate or tricky matter. One could be playful and teasing while the other can be taking things quite seriously. Impatience can be an issue now. You might prefer to stick to familiar settings from afternoon forward as the Moon moves into your home and family sector. Life slows down a touch, but moods can still be quite sensitive.

Cancer

Cancer

Watch carefully for a tendency to want to do too much, too fast in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. It’s a little too easy to become irritated, particularly with a partner or family member who may be disagreeable or provoking. Differences of opinion might be taken too personally now. The Moon moves into your communications sector this afternoon, and you tend to crave intellectual stimulation and change. Tonight’s Venus-Pluto challenge can incline others to be a little secretive or withholding.

Leo

Leo

While you should definitely watch for impatience in the first half of the day, dear Leo, the Moon is in your sign and you are bound to get noticed. You might feel that you can benefit from asserting yourself, but there can be hasty conclusions drawn now, as well as a tendency to speak too harshly, so watch for this. You may be sensitive to offhand remarks as well, but keep in mind that it’s all too easy to speak before thinking this morning, and tonight, to keep things to oneself and brood. The Moon moves into your solar second house this afternoon, which can certainly help settle emotions and increase patience.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Take extra care driving, getting around, drawing conclusions, and communicating today, dear Virgo, as there can be a tendency to be impatient and short with others, without intending to offend. The Moon moves into your sign this afternoon, and emotions awaken. You are noticed more than you have been in the last couple of days, and if you aren’t getting the attention you crave, you’re more likely to seek it out. Relations with lovers or possibly children might be a little strained today. Try not to give in to pressure that you need to pay an arm and a leg to enjoy yourself, as there are plenty of activities that are free or near-free that you can enjoy with people you love.

Libra

Libra

This morning, be careful that you don’t unintentionally mislead others by making an error of omission or by overstating, no matter how good your intentions, dear Libra. Watch also for impatience – the pace can be intense but tripping up is more likely if you rush through things. It may very well be that you’re putting too much pressure on yourself. Pressure is everywhere and you need to concentrate on only the most important tasks instead of spreading yourself too thin today. If you are able to narrow your focus sufficiently, you can get through just fine but it will take some effort. Keep the faith as pressures will pass quickly. Avoid communicating in a way that is construed as sarcastic later today.

Scorpio

Scorpio

Wherever you go today, dear Cancer, you’re sure to get noticed. This is because the Moon is transiting the most visible and notable area of your chart today. You might find others are a little too aggressive about their needs today, dear Scorpio. While this can be frustrating, you might appreciate in retrospect towards the end of the day when the tendency is to brood! Neither way is healthy, and ideally, you’ll avoid either extreme and approach others directly without being pushy. Rise above others’ faux pas. The people you want to notice you don’t seem to, and the people you don’t want to look your way, do. It’s just one of those days. Don’t expect others to read your mind, even if you think the signals you’re giving them are loud and clear. Ask for what you want instead, or wait until a better day to go after what you want.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

You can find yourself in a bit of a tizzy in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, and turning to others for a sense of stability could be a lesson in frustration. Insecurities can breed all sorts of conflict if left to grow. Identify the root problem and start there, but if you notice unresponsiveness or defensiveness from others, wait for a better day to tackle major issues, as blockages are very likely to be felt right now. People seem to either be spilling too much or keeping far too much to themselves.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Demands from others may seem to be flying at you from all directions in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, and then later today, you may feel that others keeping things from you. Fortunately you are more than capable of handling them. Do what you can to take short breaks in order to get centered if you start to feel worn down. The Moon’s move into your solar sector of spirit and adventure helps to lift you above the petty problems of the day.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Interactions with others can be a little edgy today, dear Aquarius, and as a result, you’ll find that you need to handle people with extra care and sensitivity. Others seem to be a little more demanding or impatient than usual, but this doesn’t have to spoil your day. As the day advances, the Moon moves into your strategic, introspective, and observant solar eighth house, and you’re more inclined to slow down and think before you speak. You’ll be able to easily spot any attempts at manipulation you encounter later today. Keep interactions above board, but feel free to keep some things to yourself for safekeeping.

Pisces

Pisces

A tense aspect between Mercury and Mars can stimulate impatience and a fast pace this morning, dear Pisces, but consider that you may be putting too much pressure on yourself (and possibly others) to do things quickly. Pay extra attention to what you say, and be especially cautious getting from one place to another. As the day advances, you can become especially aware of imbalance of power in your interactions, and perhaps more sensitive than usual to any power plays that might surface.

The Moon in your solar twelfth house all day points to some need to withdraw or take extra time to process, think, decide, and act, dear Virgo.

Remind yourself of your most important goals and values.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is a good day for accessing your inner wisdom and your powers of observation, dear Capricorn. For one, the Moon in your intimacy sector tends to stimulate your need to look for the layers of situations and people rather than taking things at face value. For another, the Sun and Neptune are moving towards a harmonious angle, encouraging attention drawn towards your imagination and intuition. As the day advances, sharing some of your expertise with others or reaching out and showing your support makes sense. Act on charitable impulses.

Aquarius

Aquarius

You are able to see others’ perspectives quite easily, dear Aquarius, effortlessly slipping into their shoes. Understanding is a wonderful form of support, so aim to express it. Inner mental imagery can help or hinder you, and is likely to do the former today, particularly as the day advances and we move towards a Sun-Neptune sextile that further enhances your intuition and empathy. You can be feeling strongly about helping others, and volunteering your support or services can be rewarding.

Pisces

Pisces

This is another day for focusing on the routines of your life and the details that need attention, dear Pisces. As the day advances, you’re likely to feel more and more in your element with the Sun and Neptune approaching a harmonious angle. Others are especially supportive of you, especially as you let go of expectations. Accommodating others can be very satisfying as well. You’re less focused on what matters to you and more interested in the bigger or broader picture. It’s easier to empathize with others, and this attracts them to you.
