Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Quicksilver Mercury has been retrograde since July 7 in Leo and your creativity zone, making it hard to express yourself clearly. Today, the messenger planet backflips into Cancer, making waves in the otherwise tranquil waters of your home-and-family port until July 31. You might find yourself unable to communicate simple concerns to relatives or roommates, or you could feel like people are taking advantage of your easygoing nature. You don’t have to stampede anyone, Aries, but DO let others know where your limits lie. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Loose-lipped Mercury has been retrograde since July 7, putting a strain on family ties or relationships under your roof. Today, the quicksilver planet backflips into Cancer and your intellectual third house, making it hard to think and speak clearly. People may not be presenting the whole truth, or it may come laced with a heavy dose of fanciful fiction. Until Mercury straightens on July 31, do yourself a solid and don’t take anything at face value. If you must proceed, dive deeply into the due diligence. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Money could get a little un-funny starting today, as your cosmic custodian, Mercury, which has been retrograde since July 7, reverses into your second house of finances. The communication planet will continue backsliding until July 31, making it hard to get a clear handle on your cash flow. Silver lining: Retrogrades are a perfect time to review your fiscal status and make any necessary adjustments. If you’ve been spending beyond your means, find three places where you can cut back. Even if it’s temporary, a closer look is definitely for YOUR benefit. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You hate censoring yourself—or BEING censored—but that might not be the worst idea for the next two weeks, Cancer. Communication planet Mercury, which has been retrograde in Leo since July 7, rears into your sign today until July 31. All eyes will be on you, and everyone’s ears will be perked, eager to hear what you have to say. That makes it even more important to think long and hard before you open your mouth or type a single word. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Mercury retrogrades are never fun for your gregarious sign, and when they occur in Leo, as this one has been since July 7, it’s truly an exercise in extreme frustration. Spinning backward, Mercury has surely undone some of your diligent efforts. Today, Mercury backflips into Cancer and your hazy twelfth house until July 31. Some of the pressure will be lifted, but still, don’t plan any major left-brain presentations until early August. Instead, pamper yourself liberally (hello, spa days and chair massages) and spend as much time as possible at the beach or pool! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Mercury retrograde: The “gift” that keeps on giving! After two frustrating weeks of back-spinning in your hazy twelfth house, your expressive ruling planet reverses into Cancer and your eleventh house of technology and teamwork until July 31. You can TRY to circumvent Mercury’s muck-ups by double-checking all your messages and emails, but even if they hit their mark, they’re likely to be misconstrued. Do as much independent work as possible, Virgo, and while you’re in “hunker-down” mode, upgrade your cloud storage and create some strong new passwords. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

For the past week, communication planet Mercury has been retrograde in your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, scrambling collaborative dynamics. And just when you thought people couldn’t get any more confused, the cosmic messenger backflips into Cancer and your career zone today until July 31. Be extra clear in your explanations because someone is guaranteed to misunderstand them. Back up all verbal instructions in writing and, if necessary, take the time to walk people through the steps personally. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Uh-oh: If there’s anything more unpredictable than a Scorpio during a Mercury retrograde, it’s when the messenger planet is orbiting your outspoken ninth house. Today, Mercury backflips into Cancer and that outrageous sector of your chart. Try as you might, you won’t be able to hold back your incisive opinions—even the ones that pack your notorious sting. At the very least, TRY to build people up a little before you cut them down to size. If you’re traveling between now and July 31, leave early and triple-check your reservations! See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Communicator Mercury has been retrograde for the past week in Leo and your candid ninth house, which inspired a soulful confession or two. Today, the messenger planet backflips into Cancer and your eighth house of intimacy and secrets for the remainder of its retrograde (until July 31). While no one is forcing you to divulge anything, you might want to get in front of a potential “news alert” before some gossipmonger beats you to it. This way, you can spin the story the way YOU want it heard. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

On most days, you’re a keen networker, able to find the most influential needle in any haystack. But when verbal Mercury goes retrograde a few times a year, all bets are off. The messenger planet has indeed been spinning backward since July 7, and today it reverses into Cancer and your partnership zone for the remainder of its reversal (until July 31). Choose your words carefully, Capricorn. Someone may not be showing their true colors, and what you consider a totally innocent remark could cut them to the core. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Reshuffle your priorities, Aquarius! Today, messenger Mercury retreats into Cancer and your sixth house of health and wellness after a week of back-spinning in Leo and your partnership realm. The message is clear: Put yourself at the top of your to-do list. Your communal sign never hesitates to look out for others, but trying to organize vegan potlucks and group fitness classes could be like herding cats until July 31. During these last two weeks of the retrograde, treat self-care like a solo mission. You’ll reduce stress and actually make it to the gym. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Bite your tongue and button your lips, Pisces! Innocent comments could pack a punch today as expressive Mercury, which has been retrograde since July 7, reverses into Cancer and your passionate fifth house for the final two weeks of its backspin. While the messenger planet was retrograding in Leo for the past two weeks, that surely slowed down some work progress and mucked up communication. But now, with Mercury in ultra-sensitive Cancer until July 31, you could do something rash or say something better kept private. So think before you blurt! See the full week >
