Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Mercury has just begun its retrograde starting off in your communications, travel, and education sector, dear Aries, and will remain retrograde until December 6th. In the coming weeks, look at past projects and places for answers. If you’ve rushed through your life in certain areas, you may have missed some vital details, and now it’s time to reconsider things as you look at matters from a different perspective. Today is better for laying low, observing, and processing, not only because Mercury has just stationed and turned retrograde, but also because the Moon spends the day in your privacy sector. Misjudging things is entirely possible, so it’s best to leave assessments open-ended. Especially today and in the coming week, check your facts before jumping to conclusions or expressing strong opinions. There could be misleading, missing, or hidden information that makes decision making more challenging. Delayed travel plans or travel itself may be an issue for some. Confusion over shared resources or financial transactions could figure strongly later in the cycle.
Communications that we typically take for granted may not work as expected with Mercury retrograde until December 6th, dear Taurus. Today, we may not understand the intention behind others’ words, and it’s important to allow for errors and mixed signals for now. If you are confused or bothered by something that’s said to you, ask for clarification. In the weeks ahead, debts, taxes, shared resources, and intimate matters can be a little trickier than usual for you. Later, partnerships can be confusing or can involve delays. Even so, it’s a great time for review and returning to projects that were left unfinished. Look back before moving forward now. Finances deserve special attention, notably shared money and property as well as loans and support payments. There may be delays or uncertainty in these areas, but the month ahead is strong for sorting out long-standing issues and for discovering hidden or overlooked resources, so be patient. Do watch for overspending or overlending. Today holds positive and friendly energy even with the chances of misunderstandings running high.
Mercury, your ruler, has just begun its retrograde cycle and will continue its apparent backup motion until December 6th, dear Gemini, first in your partnership sector and later (from December 1-6) in your work and health sector. You may be revisiting old issues or feeling stuck at times, particularly in or about a close relationship, with your work and routines, or regarding your health, but reflection ultimately serves you well. Do watch what you say and how you say it today during this shift which can be particularly confusing. For now, there could be some unusual, confusing, or frustrating elements to deal with in a current partnership, due to communication problems or the revisiting of old relationship problems. An ex-partnership could come into sharp focus for some. Mediation and negotiations may not be straightforward. Rethinking a deal, contract, or partnership arrangement is possible. Even though there can be fogginess trying to understand someone’s perspective, you may end up learning to listen better while trying, and this means you end up ahead!
Mercury is retrograde until December 6th, dear Cancer, starting in your work-and-health sector and later, moving back into your romance sector. There could be old problems that resurface in your work, or there can be a need to go over and correct or refine projects. Be especially careful about what you’re saying, and signing! With your methods, habits, or health, you’re likely to be dealing with backtracking or delays, but these may give you time to reconsider and refine recent decisions and ideas. Today’s Moon jibes well with your sign, encouraging you to take a break from the usual routine if it’s possible. If not, you might consider doing things just a little differently to keep yourself stimulated. Mental refreshment... see more
