Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Sun forms its yearly alignment with Uranus today, dear Aries, and for the first time in many years, this is not happening in your sign! While it’s still a call to action or to change, it’s not as pressuring or personal this year. This influences sparks the need for innovation and inspiration with your business, finances, work, health, and talents. You have years to work on this and get it right, but today is a day for embracing change and accepting that unpredictability can sometimes bring exciting new possibilities into your life. Your thinking is progressive and enterprising, and you’re exploring your more unique qualities and talents. The sudden desire for a fancy new item or for new technology in your everyday life that changes your methods or mood is likely. You probably shouldn’t expect things to go as planned today, and while this can be unsettling at first, it can also lead to worthwhile realizations and detours. For some, there can be the desire to unburden yourself of excess possessions or clutter. Circumstances are such that you become especially aware of what you’ve been holding onto both emotionally and physically and it becomes clear how some of this may be holding you back in key areas of your life.
The Sun and Uranus align in your sign, and this brings strong personal energy into your world, dear Taurus. While Uranus has already spent some time in Taurus, these bodies have not met up since it has, and this particular conjunction can feel exciting, as if you’re on the verge of something special. This is a time for learning a whole new way of “doing” your life. Uranus’ long tour of your privacy sector in recent years was revealing and sometimes upsetting, but now that your private enemies or personal demons have been exposed, and you’re starting to get over the shock of it all, you’re ready to start fresh. This can be a about your true calling, personal initiative, presentation, and attitude. You’re working for yourself first and foremost, and freedom to “do you” is more important to you than ever, perhaps and quite surprisingly, more so than security and certainty. You’re intolerant of limitations and restrictions today as you try to break free from those things that are holding you back from growing. You can be excitable and perhaps a little impatient, particularly with rules or impositions. While you can be feeling rebellious now, you put yourself in the very best position if you answer to a genuine need to make progress rather than merely react to what others are doing. Your individuality, uniqueness, and free spirit are all in the spotlight today.
The Sun and Uranus align in your privacy sector for the first time since Uranus has entered that area of your chart, dear Gemini. It’s been puttering around there, perhaps gently stirring things up for months now, but with this solar alignment, you’re likely to feel its intensity. This transit shines a light on what inspires and excites you. Things can happen that feel predestined, out of the blue, or entirely uncanny. Surprises and secrets surfacing during Uranus’ long-term tour of this sector are meant to detach you from elements of your past that have been limiting your growth, and it’s helpful to keep that in mind. There can be a bunch of little disruptions happening that distance you from self-limiting secrets or situations, and this ultimately gives you more freedom. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you might grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness today, and this is a sign to pay special attention! A private matter might open the doors to a healing process or a new beginning. There can be coincidences or sudden meetings now, and these can change your entire focus.
The Sun just entered your social sector and is now meeting with lively Uranus there, dear Cancer, which is a strong influence for your social life and your sense of community, both romantic and business partnerships, negotiations and agreements, and group involvement. There can be a new beginning of sorts with a friend, or you could be broadening your horizons through networking and meeting interesting people now. Existing relationships can be rejuvenated. This alignment can give you a real flavor for this long-term Uranus transit. It will stick around here for seven more years, in fact, and can have the effect of opening you up to new associations. You may be exploring new labels or meeting people who are far different than you’ve been accustomed to in recent years. Some upsets or disruptions are possible, too, as Uranus tends to help us detach from areas of our lives where we’ve become too complacent or attached for our own good. There can be some excitement or surprises today, and fresh energy is with you for new ideas, insights, and friendships. You might see an association or project in an entirely different light, and this can be disruptive or exciting, or perhaps a bit of both! Curveballs thrown at you tend to nudge you into new directions. You feel refreshed, even if there is initial disorientation or disruption of plans. Try not to overthink.
The Sun’s alignment with Uranus today can bring a breath of fresh air to your career, professional interests, or life path, dear Leo. There may be some incentives or benefits for your accomplishments or work. The winds of change are blowing in these areas of your life with Uranus at the top of your chart, and for now, it can feel like a pleasant breeze. It’s a fine time to intuit where you may want to head. A partnership in or through business can figure strongly now and in coming years. Keep in mind that minor disruptions or unexpected changes today can lead you in new directions. You can be hungering for a fresh start or increased freedom. You are slightly more detached than usual when it comes to your work and reputation, and this can lead to bolder moves! Inner stirrings that leave you feeling rebellious against the path you’re currently taking or against authority figures can be intense now. Some of you could be facing a matter that has your reputation going through changes. It’s important to remind yourself of the need to change along with changing times rather than resist those things that help you grow and improve.
The Sun has just recently moved into your sector of spirit and adventure, dear Virgo, bringing in a theme of discovery to your life. With its meet-up with Uranus today, you may be taking on new and perhaps unusual or radically different interests, and it’s exciting. Your belief system or personal philosophy may be changing, and events that occur now can be catalysts for exploring new ideas. Educational plans might shift, or a sudden opportunity for adventures, travel, or new experiences can arise. For some of you, this can be about work or health since the Sun and Uranus rule these areas of your solar chart. For others, it’s a mind-opening experience occurring now, or a time of finding inspiration through branching out and exploring places or topics you wouldn’t explore on a regular day. Your enthusiasm is also attracting support or positive attention from others, or your unique ideas, approach, or guidance can be in the spotlight. Uranus will be in this sector for seven years, and you’ll be doing your extracurricular activities quite differently than you’ve ever done them before!
Uranus aligns with the Sun in your intimacy sector today, dear Libra, and you can experience a deep eagerness to make profound and long-lasting changes in your personality or lifestyle now. Alternatively, if you’re not in touch with this need for change, you can receive a wake-up call or experience an unexpected event that stimulates the need to change your dependencies or your approach, particularly to people in your life and with money matters. If you’ve been feeling at the mercy of others who seem to be pulling your strings, this is a time you’ll want to break free. It’s an excellent time to overturn expectations and perhaps break some of your usual routines so that you can grow and thrive. A friendship or child may be a catalyst for making improvements. With Uranus, we may desensitize or detach a little so that we can make bolder choices. Use this energy for a boost of courage to make a change that’s meaningful to you.
With Uranus in your solar seventh house, dear Scorpio, issues of freedom in your close relationships are sure to emerge now, as you are making fresh changes to how you approach partnering–or, in some cases, it may seem that life is doing this to you! Either way, partnering is not as it used to be, and today, the Sun aligns with Uranus here, bringing some of these issues to light. People may be bringing surprises into your life today or you may awaken to relationship needs. You may have a hard time accepting rules and limitations, or you could find that a partner or special friend is rebelling against you. Unpredictability may be disorienting, but it can also lead to a new understanding of what you need from others and what you’re capable of on your own. Alternatively, through someone else’s input or unreliability, you may arrive at an exciting new perspective. Outdated ways of relating to others are falling to the side, paving the way for exciting new experiences. Different and unique ways to approach people in your life emerge today, and they’re likely to arise from new responsibilities in the work and home.
With the Sun and Uranus aligning in your solar sixth house, dear Sagittarius, it’s a time that brings new energy for work and health and good conditions for business and money matters. Increasingly, you require a fresh or different approach to how you do your job, handle routines, and manage health and wellness, and this is in strong emphasis today. The transit of Uranus through your wellness and routines sector will stretch another seven years, but it’s useful to develop strategies to work with it to your advantage. You might consider which elements of your daily life or work and habits are no longer serving you well. Changes in plans today can lead you on the path to discovery of new methods to improve wellness, work, health, and other systems in your life. If you’ve been stifled or confined in your job or restricted from getting out and about, then now is a time for breaking free, being mindful, of course, that you’re not merely reacting or acting on whims. The Moon spends the day in your sign, further keeping you on your toes.
The Sun’s meet-up with Uranus in your creative sector today can bring a feeling of rejuvenation and spirited energy into your life. Signs point to the need for you to detach yourself a little from areas of over-control or areas of your life that are depleting your energy stores to your detriment. This influence awakens you to the need to make changes, grow, and improve. Disruptions, detours, and excitement are directed to matters related to your loves, passions, hobbies, and feelings. You may want to create something new, meet new people, or do something different with a loved one now. Plans seem to change at the very last minute, and this allows for more freeform and inspirational experiences. It’s much better to identify where change is necessary in your life than it is to resist change and block things up further. You might stand out for your unique creations or personality, or a need awakens to express yourself in unique ways. Money matters can be a catalyst for exploring your creativity or a new romance. This is not the time to adopt the same old approach since opportunities will begin to open up as you breathe fresh life into your projects and relationships.
The Sun and Uranus align in your solar fourth house, dear Aquarius, reminding you that life on the homefront needs a brand new approach for it to fulfill you. It’s time to do things differently! The desire to grow, improve, and change can be intense today, or changes seem to be coming your way and it’s time to make adjustments. In all likelihood, the directions you take as you do so can be very rewarding, perhaps even leading to some nice opportunities. Disruptions to routines may be necessary in order for your life to move forward in a positive way. This is a time when you find it easier than usual to step outside of your comfort zone, and as you do, you boost your confidence. Falling back on the same old conditioned approaches in relationships will only frustrate you today, so aim to make progress with a new style or plan. This way, you may be breaking out of the mold that others have created for you! Partnership matters can be very favorable today and this week, particularly if independence and individuality are emphasized and honored. The focus is on growing and encouraging one another.
With the Sun and Uranus aligning in your communications sector, dear Pisces, it’s a rather fortunate week for friendships, communications, work, health, and group connections. New interests or channels for communicating are opening up for you, and these can lead to other layers of opportunities in different areas of life. With Uranus now a long-term guest here, you’ll find surprises, disruptions, and excitement related to commuting, connecting, and learning a frequent theme in your life, and it’s a good idea to pay attention to the results of the detours you take as your communications systems shift, since they can lead you in important directions. Your ideas, advice, or guidance might stand out as particularly unique and perhaps in demand. You can be inspired to branch out with your interests or studies or to make stimulating connections. Consider that if you can’t rely on the usual channels for expressing yourself, this helps you answer to your inner rhythms and respond to intuitive cues more often. Others may be treating you with more acceptance or fairness today.
