Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’re simply irresistible today thanks to the sultry Scorpio moon. It’s your call, Aries, but feel free to use your charm to draw someone closer. Be it for romance or otherwise, you may become intent upon deepening this involvement. Just be smart about it. How much do you really know this person’s history and credibility? The chase may be exhilarating, but once you’ve got your catch, it won’t be much fun if you’re stuck with someone you can’t trust. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Today’s Scorpio moon shines its beams in your relationship house, helping you clear the air with a business or romantic partner. You have no problem getting into a horn-locking match, Bull; in fact, you relish a good debate. But certain people aren’t quite so comfortable with your blunt communication style. Try to remember that your opinions aren’t synonymous with the facts. Instead of making blanket statements or trying to convince people to see your point, ask open-ended questions. Stay humble! A few of your long-held assumptions could be proven wrong. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Don’t sweat the small stuff, Gemini. You could find yourself in a nitpicky mood, consumed with each and every last detail. Give your head a shake, take a look at the big picture and prioritize. In all likelihood, there aren’t enough hours in the day for you to primp and preen absolutely everything. In fact, adding too many bells and whistles could end up being overkill. Don’t underestimate the power of minimalism. Today, a sleek and simplified presentation is the way to go. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your weekday warrior is in full force today, thanks to the moon in your celebratory fifth house. While YOU might be content to blow off work and turn the day into an extended ice cream social, stay cognizant of the fact that your friends and colleagues have work to do. If a romantic situation is occupying all your brain space, stop driving yourself crazy with “what ifs.” Instead, go directly to the source and get your questions answered. Be respectful of timing though, Cancer. Set up a time to chat when you’re both free, not ten minutes before bae is about to go into an important meeting. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

No need to put on the game face, Leo. In fact, under today’s Scorpio moon, your emotions could be too “dark and stormy” for that. We’re not suggesting you cast gloom over everyone’s day. But if you’re feeling sad, hurt or upset, you’ll only make it worse if you force yourself to be “on.” Give yourself clearance to go inward and let this emotional front pass through you. Slip on the Beats, put your phone into airplane mode, take your trusty journal to the park for a session during your lunch break. Need support? Reach out to a compassionate woman in your world. Her support will be balm for your soul. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Who has time for small talk under today’s intense Scorpio moon? Not you, Virgo, so don’t waste your time with people who can’t go deeper than discussing the weather. Then again, are you SURE that’s where their limits lie? Make no assumptions about the “still water” types. It’s possible they’re just waiting for you to ask some meaningful questions before they open up. Experiment by leading with your journalistic curiosity instead of your judgment. Today, one of the quiet ones may surprise you! See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Today’s directive? Stop and smell the gardenias, Libra. With the moon in sensual Scorpio, you’ll miss all the juice if you go zipping around like a helium balloon with the air let out of it. We realize that you have to business to take care of, so here’s an idea. Since your sign is motivated by beauty, use aesthetics as a motivating factor. Instead of cleaning up your workspace, how about redecorating it? (Think: colorful filing boxes, a scented votive and framed lithograph.) Slogging through busy work? Take that stack of bills and your laptop to an outdoor cafe. You can pay them online while taking in park views, and checking out the stylish people strolling by. You never know, Libra: Under these sultry skies, one might stop to chat you up! See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

So many people, so many demands! Today, you have cosmic clearance to ignore 90 percent of them as the moon lingers in Scorpio and your self-focused first house. If you need to assert your boundaries, do so before they get trampled on. (Which might be a moment when your notorious stinger cannot be contained!) Even the annoying people probably aren’t TRYING to invade your space. So just say no or a polite version of “back off” so you can get lost in whatever makes you happy today, from a creative work project to your summer novel. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Earth to Sagittarius! With the moon in your dreamy twelfth house, your concentration abilities won’t be at optimal levels. On the upside, this flowy energy allows you to effortlessly connect to other people. Anything involving a spreadsheet or strategic thinking is probably best shuffled to tomorrow’s task list. While you’re feeling THIS unbound, how about bumping forward that brainstorming session to today? And maybe rerouting it to a picnic blanket in the park or a gorgeous little cafe? Visionary ideas will emerge, even if it’s not obvious how to implement them in real time quite yet. Don’t stress about the how; just dream about what could be. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

All hands on deck! With the moon hovering in your collaborative eleventh house, a solo mission could evolve into a shared one. That’s a great idea for any stressed-out Sea Goats. Imagine if you DIDN’T have to handle this one all by your lonesome. (‘Cause you don’t.) Instead of leaning on your go-to supporters, seek a few new collaborators—the more eclectic the better. Adding fresh perspectives will make the plan even richer. Invite people who might not readily agree with every idea you float. A healthy debate could shine a light on new solutions and strategies. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Raise that bar! With today’s potent Scorpio moon illuminating your ambitious tenth house, no need to err on the conservative side. No gamble, no gain, Aquarius. While you shouldn’t toss all common sense out the window, a calculated risk might yield big-time rewards. Could you use a little guidance? Reach up the ladder to a more senior colleague or a family member who’s “been there, done that.”  Their sage advice will help propel your quest, and, as a bonus, you’ll strengthen your connection.

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

How real is too real? With the Scorpio moon blasting its beams in your candid ninth house, you couldn’t sugarcoat things if you tried. If you must unleash, don’t throw ALL of your trademark compassion out the window. Or just let it all out in a room that you’re sure is private—and with people you’re certain you can trust. Your rant could reach the wrong ears, igniting a full-on war. Same goes for email. Instead of sending that ranting reply, just save it to drafts. At the end of the day, you’ll be pleased you practiced a little restraint. See the full week >
