Taurus, less chatter and more thoughts can be the mantra of the day the Moon enters your third solar house of communication. The energy of the day is about introspection and this is something you do naturally.

Today’s horoscope for Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, money could be a sensitive subject for you as the Moon transits through the astrological sign of Cancer for the next few days.
Doing and how to save money could come to mind today. You might be thinking about how to make a small nest egg so that you have something to show for your hard work by the end of 2020.

Leo, learn a lesson and then move on. When you keep checking an X or your friends you knew you were sabotaging your happiness. You don’t want to waste any more time on what belongs to you.
When you do, you are making these moments a part of your present and future. You may be searching because part of you is missing what it was, but the future is so much brighter for you, so why not spend your time on the right things.
Today’s horoscope for Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, spend time with a close friend today. While you can’t be together in the same room due to social distance or to live across miles, today it’s made for friendship.

You may find it necessary to rethink your position before fully entering battle today; and money may be what keeps you from saying your opinion.
Today’s horoscope for Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, you live and learn, and when the Moon enters Cancer today, it is a good time to evaluate your personal philosophy.
What prompts you to judge others or to struggle to love and show acceptance are your teachers, and you should pay attention to what these feelings reveal about your heart.

Sagittarius, being generous is important and giving to others is a gift you give to yourself. You might see where you can step in and help someone in need today.
