Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house, dear Aries, turning your special attention to your routines and daily affairs. As much as you’d like to keep up the organizing momentum, you may experience a short dip. You may not be seeing eye to eye on basics with someone, but it can be fruitless trying too hard to present your case just for now. There can be a strong desire to take action, but very little to go on or a temporary lack of inspiration or direction. Even so, a Jupiter-Pluto aspect has just occurred, and it’s set to motivate you. It’s the first of three, and it’s largely in effect until November, weaving in and out of prominence. You’ll be doing your business, career, or long-term goals differently as you gain a greater understanding of your ambitions and desires. You may be striving toward more authenticity in your career or through your life path and direction. You can be determined to improve your situation, whether this is about your reputation, leadership skills, or the need to follow some rules and structure and build self-discipline. The recent Saturn-Pluto conjunction reminded you of what’s most important, and this Jupiter-Pluto now helps you rebuild and reinvent yourself, particularly through your career, skills, education, resources, and responsibilities. You’re doing these things differently with a brand new perspective.
TaurusThere can be some frustrating vagueness to deal with in spots today, dear Taurus, and uncertainty can leave you feeling a bit sapped. Try not to let worries or a feeling of being overwhelmed deflate you. Instead, take a bit of a break (if possible) to gather yourself. Inspiration may be lacking, and it’s important to feed your spirit with some positivity. Fortunately, a Jupiter-Pluto influence is now serving to motivate you. It’s a general trend in your life that sticks with you, moving in and out of prominence, until November. The recent Saturn-Pluto alignment reminded you of what’s most important, revealing structures in your life that are impermanent. Now, this Jupiter-Pluto transit encourages you to rebuild based on a new perspective or worldview. Some might decide to retrain or take on a new line of study or project. You’re no longer as tolerant of procrastination or denial–you embrace your desire to grow, improve, and transform. Learning through different perspectives is in focus. Changes in your experience of education, religion, adventure, and discovery are part of this, and you can find you’re redefining yourself as your mind, communications, and topics of interest are transforming in your life.
GeminiInner restlessness can take hold in spots today, dear Gemini. You may have felt pumped up, but now some of the wind leaves your sails temporarily. In truth, it may be that you need a bit of inspiration or a break from the action to gather and center yourself. Sometimes we forget our need for some positivity and hope, and now is a time for feeding your spirit. Seek emotional refreshment and spiritual renewal in small but significant ways. Some form of healthy escape or recreation is in order now. Fortunately, a Jupiter-Pluto alignment has just occurred, and it’s a powerful, ambitious influence that will influence you in and out until November. With this transit, you’re in particularly good shape for going in deep, advancing your goals, attracting support, and enjoying a deeper connection with a person or project. While the recent Saturn-Pluto conjunction turned your attention to the need to restructure, Jupiter-Pluto now helps you rebuild based on your new perspective. It helps renew your faith and confidence, and it reveals to you desires or goals you hadn’t imagined for yourself in the past. Combining your resources, whether financial or otherwise, with someone or navigating tricky sharing dynamics can be a significant focus. You don’t feel exactly like the same person, and you’ll be pursuing paths that reflect your new values.
CancerToday’s Moon transit emphasizes your desire to communicate and share, dear Cancer. In contrast with yesterday’s energies, however, the day feels a bit wobbly or uncertain. A lack of direction can be at the root of sudden cravings and inner unrest. Try to avoid attempting to please everyone – it simply cannot be done, and it’s better to attempt to tune out some distractions and center yourself. You may find that your spirit needs some refreshment. Fortunately, a new, long-term influence has just begun, and it’s with you, weaving in and out of prominence, until November. A new view of the world, yourself, and your relationships is now driving you to make improvements. With a deeper understanding of your relationship needs, you’re in a better position to grow. Rich learning experiences are happening now. While the recent Saturn-Pluto alignment revealed areas of weakness or vulnerability, this Jupiter-Pluto transit helps motivate you to work with what you have and with your new perspective to make meaningful changes. Your values are changing, and you’re connecting with new goals. This is a time of rebuilding faith and confidence.
LeoThe Moon’s transit of your solar second house all day inclines you to seek stability, dear Leo. A Mars-Neptune aspect suggests a break in the action that’s temporary, but somewhat deflating. It can be a little difficult to focus and concentrate, perhaps due to a minor disappointment with someone or a sudden dip of energy or drive. Consider whether overblown expectations are at the root of these feelings since they very often are! Consider, too, that you need some spiritual refreshment. Life is stressful, particularly with certain elements out of your control, and you may need to focus on something positive and hopeful. A Jupiter-Pluto alignment has just occurred, and it’s useful for longer-term motivation levels and determination. Until November, your focus can be on making long-lasting beneficial changes. You are super motivated to improve your situation, and you might see the primary path to these goals through the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle and better daily routines, habits, chores, tasks, services, and work. This is because the Jupiter-Pluto alignment occurs in your work and health sector. A new perspective leads you to rethink and transform these areas of life. With a better understanding of what’s most important to you and of what drives you, you’ll be in better shape to make the right choices. It’s a strong period for making significant, long-term, and impactful changes to your health and habits, as well as to your work and services, and it all starts now.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, moving your personal plans and emotional needs to the front burner. The first of three Jupiter-Pluto alignments has just occurred, bringing powerful energy for making changes into your life until November. Occurring in your sector of joy, creativity, leisure, play, and romance, you’re now approaching these areas of life with the determination to improve, succeed, and grow. You can be determined to make something of a creative project or to do your leisure time differently. Values are changing, and this transit reflects your ability to make the most of your situation. It’s also pulling out desires to express and enjoy yourself in new ways. While the recent Saturn-Pluto alignment asked you to cut out inauthentic paths from your life, Jupiter-Pluto now helps you start the process of rebuilding and reinventing yourself. There can be a transformation happening with hobbies, creativity, self-expression, or romance. You are motivated to pursue things that bring you joy, and to help others discover their passions. Later today, however, there can be a temporary lull, as part of the structure beneath your plans or goals may seem to dissolve. It’s temporary and likely a sign that you need to take a short break to look at things from a new angle rather than a symptom of inferior plans. It’s best not to push yourself until the wind returns to your sails. Do your best to get yourself on an even keel instead of bouncing up and down emotionally.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your hidden, private solar twelfth house, dear Libra, suggesting you’re best off winding down and attending to your needs for quiet, rest, and replenishment. It’s difficult to tune out all that’s going on around you, but a brief escape would be helpful now. Minor, hard-to-define conflicts with others or kinks in your plans are possible, but worrying and fretting won’t resolve things. Fortunately, a Jupiter-Pluto alignment has just occurred, and it’s the start of something special. Gradually, you’ll find that your motivation to rebuild your life increases. This transit boosts your confidence and optimism to better yourself and your situation until November. It will weave in and out of prominence in the months ahead, but it’s supportive and might be considered an overarching theme. Overcoming obstacles can figure strongly during this transit, and you’re striving toward an improved emotional foundation, home life, and domestic world. It’s a time when beneficial, robust, and long-term renovations occur on either physical or emotional planes (often, both). You are determined to make improvements that go deep in your home, family, and personal life. It’s also a great time for pouring energy into the home or the beginning of a long-term initiative or business–something that supports you for years to come. You can be quite determined to make the most of your current resources.
ScorpioYou have a stronger sense of community today with the Moon in your social sector all day, dear Scorpio, and you can find yourself especially interested in what others are up to. You might consider reaching out to someone with whom you’ve lost touch. A minor challenge between Mars and Neptune suggests that it can be hard to follow through on your impulses for now. You may need a short break to catch your bearings. A bit of chaos or confusion can enforce a break from pushing ahead. Stopping to consider your emotional and spiritual needs can be worthwhile now. Fortunately, a strong overarching transit is now accelerating, and it involves an alignment between one of your ruling planets, Pluto, and Jupiter. Gradually, it’s sure to fuel you with the energy to improve and build something special. You can be brilliantly persuasive now and in the months ahead, and it’s best to consider how to use this power wisely. It can also be a time of great enthusiasm for a special personal interest, goal, or line of study. You might see a way to improve your life through writing, studies, and projects. You’re seeking more meaning through what you’re doing, learning, teaching, and sharing. Discovering your own deeper ambitions or developing brand new interests as the world around you and your perspective changes can figure strongly now. While the recent Saturn-Pluto transit was on the stark side, you’re now recognizing the need to change, reform, and renovate your life. Your ideas and projects are powerful, and you’re determined that they represent you.
SagittariusYour sense of responsibility is stronger than usual today, dear Sagittarius. The Moon at the top of your solar chart all day also suggests that you’re more noticeable. While it’s a good checkpoint moment as you consider where you are with your goals and duties, a Mars-Neptune transit can blur things just a little temporarily. People may not be getting your ideas or methods just for today. In truth, as much as you might prefer not to admit it, you might briefly question something you were confident about just minutes ago. This uncertainty is temporary, and more a symptom of your need for a short break rather than something serious. Fortunately, a motivating theme that will support you for months to come is gaining traction now. The first of three Jupiter-Pluto alignments has just occurred, and you’ll be striving to improve your life. Since this configuration occurs in your solar second house, you might consider developing your sense of security, talents, business or money matters as a primary means to improve your life all around. This aspect pumps everything up– you’re ambitious, confident, and ready to pour yourself into building your resources. You’re connecting with desires you didn’t know you had, and changing circumstances are dramatically altering your perspective. The recent Saturn-Pluto conjunction reminded you of vulnerabilities, and you’re now beginning to roll with the changes, determined to follow your principles and to more closely align your pursuits with your new perspective.
CapricornTry not to over-commit yourself today, dear Capricorn, since a Mars-Neptune minor challenge suggests that desires can be big, but follow-through is not so great. It’s temporary, and merely a reminder that you need to refresh your spirit. If you feel a little drained, you’ve likely been neglecting the need to feed your need for hope and optimism. The Moon in a complementary sign can help, although it can also magnify feelings of unrest. Also today, a Jupiter-Pluto alignment has just occurred, and it’s set to build your confidence. It’s the first of three, and its influence will stick with you until November. With an eye out for channeling intense ambitions appropriately, this can be a powerful period for a sense of personal accomplishment. You might focus this energy on an important project or focus it inward as you strive toward greater self-understanding. You can feel driven to improve your circumstances, and you’re likely to discover desires you never recognized as your view of the world and your place in it transforms. While the recent Saturn-Pluto conjunction reminded you of what you don’t have or can’t count on or control, this Jupiter-Pluto aspect now helps you rebuild and reinvent yourself. Going forward, you’ll be presenting yourself with more authenticity and confidence, and you can most certainly be an example to others as you live your truth.
AquariusYour impulses to help, support, and guide are in strong form now with Jupiter and Pluto aligned in your solar twelfth house of sacrifice, dear Aquarius. This aspect is the first of three, and its influence will stick with you, weaving in and out of prominence, until November. During this period, you’ll also move towards a better place of self-understanding as you discover desires you never knew you had, embracing the ones that serve you and others well. The recent Saturn-Pluto alignment reminded you of what’s most important to you as it stripped away some of the nonessentials. Now, this Jupiter-Pluto influence helps you improve your life as you incorporate this newfound perspective into your life. You’re seeking more meaning and purpose. You can be determined to cut out an unhealthy attachment or resolve a problem that has kept you from claiming your happiness. Lifestyle changes can be significant. Most of your renovations and improvements are going on under the hood– they’re inward changes, not completely obvious to others but important to you nonetheless–because the Jupiter-Pluto alignment occurs in the hidden, undercover twelfth house of your solar chart. Today, the Moon spends the day in another undercover sector, and the focus can very much be on your emotional life and inner world. A Mars-Neptune aspect suggests some disorientation or a pause in your plans. You need some refreshment and inspiration, so aim for these before pressing forward.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Pisces, spotlighting your relationship needs. It’s not the most decisive time of the month, but it’s a good period for considering other perspectives. Moodiness is possible now, and it’s best to aim to keep your mind peaceful so that you’re better able to distinguish your own problems and feelings from the slightly chaotic elements around you that you’re absorbing even more easily than usual. Financial and love matters can be murky just for now, so it’s best to avoid taking a risk in these areas. It’s temporary, and in fact, a Jupiter-Pluto influence is now with you, building up your motivation and determination. It’s sticking around, weaving in and out of prominence, until November, and it’s a strengthening backdrop. You instinctively know how to delegate fairly and make everyone feel happy to contribute. Your show of strength and support can be particularly useful to a friend or network now, and encouraging someone can be rewarding. You can be determined to make improvements and to better yourself and the world. For you, this Jupiter-Pluto transit occurs in your sector of community, friendship, and innovative spirit. Reform figures strongly. You can feel driven to improve and enhance your connections and personal involvement or contributions in any way that’s currently feasible.
