Your daily horoscopes for Thursday October 26, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Pause and think before you speak. Today’s connection between the impulsive Aries moon and the stormy Scorpio Sun could have you riding a roller coaster of rage. If you’re not careful, you could start a social media war with a single comment or a controversial post. Justified though you may be, spending the day steeped in all that negative energy will leave you feeling depleted. Cool down with a dance class or take a long walk to get out of your head. Pull back instead of lashing out.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Good luck trying to figure out people’s mystifying actions of late. Today’s awkward dance between the moon in your restorative twelfth house and the Sun in your partnership zone could take your mind for an intense ride. When you think about the situation, notice if a lot of nervous energy starts building up. Go easy on stimulants like caffeine, sugar and alcohol, which will further zap your fried synapses. Fuel up by stimulating your right brain. Listen to a guided meditation or practice alternate-nostril breathing.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
It’s been quite a week, Gemini, but with the moon in your group-activities zone, you might not be able to resist an invitation to see a new band play or an indie film being screened. You’re definitely not up for the same-old as the Scorpio Sun pumps its investigative energy into the mix. Summon your most creative friends and scout out new places to commune. With your sixth house of service lit by these rays, you could be drawn to an activist or social-impact group whose values you can stand behind.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Feeling boxed in, Cancer? That may be unusual for you, but the Aries moon in your tenth house of status and success is doing an awkward dance with the Scorpio Sun in your playful fifth house. Let this light a fire under you to mix things up a bit. If you’re starting to feel the urge for new challenges, you don’t have to quit your day job or go to extremes. See what happens if you add an extracurricular that stokes one of your creative interests. A weekend workshop could keep you buzzing for months!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Those who boast about being brutally honest are usually more brutal than honest. You might want to check where you are on that spectrum today, Leo, as the fiery Aries moon in your outspoken ninth house clashes with the sensitive Scorpio Sun. How you serve up your truth serum matters. If you can leave out the judgment or accusation, you could start a conversation that leads to much-needed change.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
You can resist everything but temptation today as the Aries moon in your erotic eighth house gets into an awkward dance with the Scorpio Sun in your envelope-pushing third. Go ahead and send that NSFW text that will make someone tilt their phone away and blush. Your seductive powers are in high gear and no one can resist you, so be as suggestive as you dare. With stars like this, you might be surprised by who’s been waiting in the wings to share a steamy evening.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
With the moon in your seventh house of partnerships getting pinged by the Sun in your values zone, your sentiments might not be everyone’s cup of tea. But that’s no reason to keep quiet today. If you’ve been wanting to mix things up a bit, whether in business or in bed, let people know exactly what you need from the relationship. Don’t worry if your voice shakes a bit during delivery. If you never say anything, nothing will change. You could be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Rise and grind, Scorpio! Good things come to those who sweat, so get thee to the gym as the moon runs relays in your sixth house of health and organization. The only bad workout is the one that doesn’t happen, so lace up those trainers or roll out that yoga mat. Although the Scorpio Sun is shining into your competitive first house, don’t wait until you reach your goal to acknowledge yourself. Every step you take along the way is something to be proud of.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
You have so much to give, Sagittarius, and the moon in your fifth house of passion and self-expression is pushing you to share your talents with the world. Not that your outspoken sign is known for holding back, but with the Scorpio Sun hiding out in your esoteric twelfth house, you may have been ducking out of the limelight. Of course you don’t want to make obnoxious bids for attention. But by vocalizing your unique perspective or sharing your gifts, you could inspire someone else to do the same.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Your primary goal today could simply be to keep calm as the hotheaded Aries moon gets into a tussle with the Scorpio Sun. Don’t let an argument with a relative or a teammate blow up into a feud that has you packing your bags. Psychotherapist and author Andrea Wachter suggests trying the “CURE” method: Be curious, undefended, respectful and empathetic. It’s not always easy to take the high road, but you surely won’t regret it.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
In the end, Aquarius, is there anything better than a good conversation? You’re in for a day of stimulating repartee as the moon cruises through your third house of communication and community affairs. With the Scorpio Sun in your visionary tenth house, fortify your gift of gab by listening to great orators like Gloria Steinem, who said that social justice arises from “people sitting in small groups, telling their life stories and discovering that other people have shared similar experiences.” Sounds like a great way to spend this mindful and mobilizing moment.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday October 26
Be prepared for an expense that you didn’t see coming as the Aries moon in your second house of finances and security gets sideswiped by the Scorpio Sun. If you don’t have a nest egg, maybe it’s time to pick up freelance work or create a new revenue stream to give you a better safety net. Fortunately, all you have to do is open your mouth, and opportunity could present itself. Even if you’re flush with cash, today’s stars could tempt you to impulse shop. If you do, make sure there’s a good return policy.
