Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Are your relationships uplifting you or draining you? Today’s Libra moon illuminates your seventh house of interpersonal affairs: a planetary prompt to take stock of your closest ties. With la luna forming an awkward angle to sacrificing Neptune, notice where guilt or codependence is at work. Are you trying to “save” someone by playing the hero? Disengage from these dynamics and shift things back to a more balanced give-and-take. Pack away that cape and just let yourself be human, Aries. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

The best-laid plans will only get so far today. The moon is in Libra and your systematic sixth house, inspiring you to roll up your sleeves and start knocking out the “action items” on your to-do list. But a distracting ray from dreamy Neptune in your social eleventh house practically guarantees a slew of interruptions. Since some of them could be tempting—a decadent lunch invitation or summer sale—and could be worth stepping away from your duties, turn off your social media alerts and minimize those browser windows. There will be way too many interruptions, and you won’t enjoy ANY of your group time if you’re stressing about all the stuff you have to do. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Work or play? The moon starts the week in Libra and your creative fifth house, putting you in festive spirits. RSVP “yes” to any parties today and tomorrow, when you’ll be in your most fun-loving element. Watch what you sign up for at work, though, because a confusing beam from Neptune could tempt you to take on a big assignment or rush in for a rescue mission. In your enthusiasm, you’ll underestimate what this job requires. The short-lived ego boost won’t be worth the heavy load you’re stuck with. In your love life, old “mommy-daddy issues” may surface. Watch out for family dynamics that color your other connections. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Easy does it, Cancer. With the moon in Libra and your sensitive fourth house, you’ll be craving some downtime and a chill night at home. But just as you’re plotting your perfect Netflix lineup, FOMO kicks in. A conflicting beam from charming Neptune in your adventurous ninth house nudges you to not completely shut out the world. Make a brief appearance at that cocktail gathering before you head home. Nail down any nebulous summer plans instead of procrastinating and missing out on festival tickets. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, just choose one thing to tackle—you’ll feel better knowing at least something is handled. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

All filters are off today, as the gregarious Libra moon ignites your chatty third house, making you quite the bubbly Leo. But don’t go spilling the beans (or the tea) to just anyone. With the moon forming a shady angle to deceptive Neptune, one of your eager audience members could turn out to be an award-winning gossipmonger. Unless you want your tales to become grist for the rumor mill, keep names and personal details out of your colorful storylines. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re off to a productive start this week as the Libra moon charges up your second house of work and money all day. The only obstacle? Other people. A conflicting beam from guilt-tripping Neptune in your relationship house could have you surrounded by needy energy vampires. Stand firm as they tug on your heartstrings and try to suck up your precious time. While you might need to pause from your industrious groove to give ‘em a LITTLE attention, don’t allow anyone to pull you into their dramatic tales. You’ve got better (and more profitable) things to do than play life coach today. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

And you’re off! The week begins with the moon in Libra, which might get you excited and energized to start something new. But in your eagerness, don’t bite off more than you can chew. A difficult angle from foggy Neptune in your administrative sixth house could turn a “brilliant idea” into a logistical nightmare. Scale it down or save it for another time (or both). The energy it will take to pull this off would leave you spent before the week is through. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

The week gets off to a sleepy start as the moon lingers in Libra and your restful, flowy twelfth house today. Not exactly the best way to “do Monday,” but you can’t fight these tides. Slow down and let your intuition guide you. Engage in creative work, catch up with colleagues and focus on right-brained tasks. You can download some powerful guidance—if you can stay out of your head. (We know: Easier said than done!) Later, a tense beam from hazy Neptune in your love corner could spark a tempting but toxic attraction. Before you get carried away with fantasies, make sure you know what you’re signing up for. Once you start obsessing over someone, Scorpio, it’s never easy to turn back. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Friends or family? You could feel pulled between dueling demands from your social circle and your relatives. The moon is in Libra and your outgoing eleventh house, making it a great day for networking, happy hour and group dinners. But an uncooperative angle from emo Neptune in your domestic sphere could bring guilt trips from home base. Don’t sacrifice an important chance to make connections, but do see to it that your loved ones have what they need (within reason). Empower, don’t enable. They CAN figure this out without you, Sag. Delegate instead of taking it all on yourself. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

The week begins on a goal-focused note as a Libra moon illuminates your tenth house of structure and big plans. Your Monday has a mission—and you’re ready to dive right in. But be careful, Cap: You could start barking orders and leave out that essential human touch. The moon will form a harsh angle to compassionate Neptune in your communication house today. While you may feel pressured to meet a deadline, that’s no excuse for bulldozing people. If you want the cooperation of your crew, they need to feel like you care. Do a little personal check-in. That said, you ARE on the clock, so keep it short—but still sweet! See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Big dreams! The week starts off with a Libra moon beaming into your ninth house of adventure and expansion. Capture this inspired energy while the muse is here. Start researching an entrepreneurial idea or planning an epic trip. Get everyone revved up about your big mission. Pro tip: Conduct your due diligence before you shoot off into the stratosphere. A tense beam from nebulous Neptune could make you underestimate the time, money or resources required to pull this off. If you catch yourself saying “It’ll be easy!” remember that most things usually take longer than expected to execute properly. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Are the ties that bind giving you rope burn? Today’s moon in Libra illuminates your eighth house of merging—a good time to take stock of your obligations, both personal and professional. With a tangled angle between la luna and your co-ruler, nebulous Neptune, you could experience some unspoken power struggles. The energy between you and others might feel off-kilter, as though someone is overly dependent on you (or vice versa). You may be tempted to make a jailbreak. But before you pull a disappearing act, try talking it through. Clarify your need for more space and autonomy AND hear the other person out. With a few adjustments, you can get back on solid ground.
