Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Ideas, media, and special-interest projects and activities today can help you heal, dear Aries. It’s a strong time for helping others through your words or teaching. You could find yourself in the position of mentor. You may very well discover that you share similar fundamental values with someone special in your life. Your special and unique qualities are more noticeable, particularly on a professional level, but personally as well. You’re likely to crave a break from the daily grind today nevertheless, even though part of you is itching for new activities and experiences. Try not to overdo either of these, but consider seeking out more time to explore your inner world with the Moon in your privacy sector most of the day. Late today, the Moon enters your sign, and you’ll crave more interaction.
You’re in a good position to assert yourself naturally today, dear Taurus, and for gaining trust and support from others. You can make excellent progress on a career or money-making idea now. If something’s bothering you mentally, consider some form of physical activity to deal with stress. Your mind is especially sharp today when it comes to financial and practical matters, and you may get the chance to say your piece or defend someone. You seek comfort and happiness from your social life today, and sharing ideas and exchanging information can be particularly satisfying. Whether you want to get close with or keep some emotional distance from someone in your life can be a question now, and the answer might change at different points in the day!
The desire to take action to improve your life or simply to enjoy the moment takes hold today, dear Gemini. You can feel quite empowered now as you put a problem behind you. There is a busy, connected theme in your life right now, but you’re also more ambitious and serious than usual. Either way, it’s a time for taking care of business and fulfilling your responsibilities. Take advantage of this, because with Jupiter in your partnership sector this year, you’re inclined to pay considerably more attention to your personal life than you do to outside obligations. You are filled with energy and vision today, and it would be a good idea to apply tremendous mental energy to something productive and useful. This week is powerful for self-improvement efforts, and also for coming into your own.
This is a time for letting go of overthinking and replacing it with activity as Mars and Chiron connect, dear Cancer. Taking action on a problem can be very healing now. You might see the connection between physical healing and inner, emotional healing. Even physical activities or exercise can help you to reduce stress now. You can be so focused on work or duties that you forget to honor your need to get away and explore new areas and ideas these days. Today, the Moon in your solar ninth house encourages to do just that. Try to find ways to break out of the usual routine now. There can be breakthroughs today – what at first seems a problem can turn in your favor.
If the balance of power or give-and-take has been off in a relationship, you could feel this imbalance today, dear Leo. However, there is divine energy with you today for getting something constructive done. You are less likely to overthink and more likely to take affirmative action. Troubled relationships can benefit the most now, but so can your spirit. It’s best to do something about a problem rather than only think or talk about it. You tend to appreciate more intimate moments and subtle discoveries with the Moon in your solar eighth house. You’re rather fearless when it comes to accepting and confronting deeper feelings now, and you’re ready to dive in and take care of problems. It’s a good day to learn a new topic or delve into a subject more deeply.
It can be a little difficult juggling your personal life today, dear Virgo, but once you settle on an activity or discover a mission today, you’re wholeheartedly into it. You’re courageous about facing problems that might arise, and you easily gain the support of others today. This is a good day for sharing time with people you care about. While you may not take the advice of others word for word, you seem to need feedback to get your own thinking going. You are unlikely to feel free to pursue your desires now, particularly with stronger demands from family or your domestic life, but you may be able to come to a compromise. This is a time for being forthright yet also sensitive to your “audience.” A direct approach is best after several days when subtlety seemed the only way to go.
Today’s Mars-Chiron aspect feels refreshing after many days when an indirect approach seemed the only way, dear Libra, since it’s very direct and productive energy. A significant other may very well be integral to getting you out of a funk now, or you could enjoy a mini adventure with someone special. You’re focused on the little jobs and details today, and this can be very useful. Of course, if you take this too far, you may end up overanalyzing, which can be counterproductive. If you’ve been paying too much attention to your need to get away from it all, your busy, attentive mood today can be especially welcome. Educational, work, or travel news may be forthcoming now. Share your joie de vivre with others now and watch for the opportunities that open up as you do.
This is a time for being clear about your intentions, dear Scorpio, or better yet, taking action and talking about it later. Outstanding, healing energy is with you, particularly for private, personal matters, but these can also positively affect your health. This is due to a Mars-Chiron connection that comes about typically once a year, but now with Chiron in your work and health sector, it’s affecting you on a different level. This is a good day for high levels of emotional and mental energy, and you can quite feel motivated to do things that you’ve been letting slide. Use this positive blast of energy to sort out financial support issues if needed, or to engage in an intimate conversation that can be very revealing. With the Moon finishing up its transit of your creative sector today, you’ll want to express yourself in creative, unique, and original ways now as well, or you may simply need to unwind and let loose your more playful side.
Things can be done more swiftly today due to a can-do attitude, dear Sagittarius, as Mars and Chiron connect, and you seem to know your next step intuitively. This energy is refreshingly direct after several days when things seemed to be up in the air or were not well-defined. You’re not always happy with subtlety, so today’s energies are particularly palatable for you. You can feel very much in your element today. Your confidence seems to build in direct proportion to your ability to take action. You are virtually fearless when it comes to facing problems, and others are drawn to you, enjoying your directness as well. Even so, with the Moon in your home and family sector most of today, do take the time to pause and connect with familiar faces and places.
You get the strong feeling that you can combine warmth and intimacy with playfulness and freedom today, dear Capricorn, as Mars and Chiron form a happy aspect. Your confidence is building. Rather than speculate and guess, you’re ready to take decisive action today, and it’s refreshing. You’re in a good position to reduce mental stress by physically doing something, whether this involves taking on an organizing project or taking a refreshing detour. It’s also a fine day for branching out and considering different ideas and possible projects. Sometimes it’s best not only to accept but to enjoy our differences, and today’s influences encourage just that. You’re interested in eliminating waste today. Reliable energy is with you for attending to practical affairs with gusto.
Influences today are excellent for taking charge, dear Aquarius, and for intuitively solving a problem through taking action. You are courageous when it comes to finding the source of a problem and dealing with it. You don’t want to be weighed down or restricted by fears now, and this is an effective approach at the moment. Physical activities or games can help reduce stress with today’s Mars-Chiron connection. While people are reasonably helpful these days, there are times when you need to remind yourself of just how well you can thrive on your own. This way, you can bring more to your relationships by putting less pressure on them. You’re quick on your feet and adaptable now.
This is a fine time for taking action on a problem, dear Pisces, after a period in which guesswork seemed to be the norm. You’re fully capable of taking charge and handling problem areas confidently now as Mars and Chiron form a harmonious aspect. This is also a solid day for taking care of others and for feeling valued and appreciated. The Moon finishes its transit of your sign today, and the emotional tone around you feels natural, encouraging self-expression. Expressing your feelings is a way to nurture yourself at the moment. Today is better for seeking out ways to entertain yourself while keeping yourself open to the idea of letting others join you if they choose. You may be facing up to something that requires attention, perhaps a neglected area of your life, and it feels good to do so.
