Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesConsciously attempting to express yourself more positively and confidently can make an impact now, dear Aries, and it helps secure cooperation and the right responses from others. It’s a good time to make it easy for someone to open up about their concerns or worries. Pouring your energy into a special project can be consuming in all the right ways now, as well. The focus is on order and organizing, and this can be very satisfying. Your ideas and pursuits can be attractive and comforting, and your words to others, healing. You see the value of a balanced approach to your life today. Still, as the day advances, it can be hard to put in practice temporarily. Tensions mount with your ruler, Mars, heading into a square aspect with Uranus. Quick reactions to frustrating people or circumstances are unlikely to resolve problems. Your better bet is to identify areas of your life where you’ve gone overboard, and then putting some attention into areas that you’ve ignored. This way, some balance is restored. Connecting with others, even and sometimes especially virtually, can eat up your time. Interruptions today might lead to a significant new perspective or could introduce new opportunities that will benefit you, so keep your mind open.
TaurusA part of you would rather stay in the background, dear Taurus, but you’re also inclined to want to produce or bring something into order. You find it straightforward to apply your experience or wisdom to your practical affairs. Your efforts to organize can lead to a money boost or the discovery of resources you had forgotten about or didn’t know you had. You’re factoring in your need for rest, healing, and self-renewal, and this helps you plan more effectively. As the day advances, a Mars-Uranus aspect comes into play, and it can certainly stir things up. If you’ve been enduring a frustrating situation, you may no longer have patience for it. If you’re going to rock the boat, aim to know precisely what you want and what you value since quick reactions may get you into hot water. It’s also essential that you don’t lose sight of those things, situations, and people that/who you value most. If you’ve been putting too much pressure on yourself to succeed recently, it’s probably time for a break that restores and refreshes. While doing your own thing can be good for you, you may want to avoid making too big of a point out of it. Instead, do it for you!
GeminiPutting your faith and confidence in someone can have happy results now, dear Gemini. It’s also a good time for exploring hobbies and other forms of expressive recreation that can provide a healing, comforting diversion. There can be a stronger sense of accomplishment and even joy experienced as you meet your responsibilities. As the day advances, a Mars-Uranus aspect comes into play, which can temporarily disrupt the equilibrium. Part of you is seeking to push beyond your usual boundaries these days, but another part of you may be resisting change. The result of this clash can emerge today and tomorrow. Consider healthy ways to explore and assert yourself. The Moon moves into your sector of joy and pleasure today, which helps smooth over the rough edges. It also inclines you to release pressure through some recreation.
CancerA wider perspective allows you to put aside certain differences and problems now, dear Cancer, as some things just don’t seem as important as they once were. The goal now is to arrive at a healthy balance between optimism and practicality. This is an advantageous time for any work that you are doing behind the scenes with Vesta in your privacy sector in harmony with Chiron in your professional sector. Later today, the Moon moves into your home and family sector, giving you another reason to honor your need for security and quiet time. Still, a Mars-Uranus aspect is in the works, and there can be some tension or willfulness to manage. At the heart of this is unrest or need for a change, but identifying this can be the hard part.
LeoThere can be some comfort and healing in studies or a special interest now, dear Leo. Someone or something can remind you of a reason for hope and optimism, or others might reinforce/add to your own ideas in pleasant ways now. Answers come more easily when you share your problems today. Studies undertaken now can be especially helpful in the future. You might take on a teaching or training role, or you could be turned to for advice. As the day advances, a Mars-Uranus square comes into influence, and it’s on the disruptive side. If you’ve felt overruled, it might reach a frustrating level now. Or, it may be a time when someone disagrees with your current goals. Alternatively, career fluctuations or frustrations can disrupt the flow now, and tensions are hard to ignore. Avoid making too-quick decisions today and tomorrow. Through conflict or a bit of chaos, you might discover new approaches that work just as well, or better.
VirgoAn influence this morning points to a healthy evening out of your expectations, dear Virgo, and it benefits and stabilizes you. You might make psychological discoveries that help free you from difficulties of the past or from attitudes that have been holding you back from moving forward. You more readily find support and guidance, or an engaging project has healing powers for you. As the day advances, a Mars-Uranus influence comes into influence, tensions about a health or work matter may relate to restlessness. Difficulties knowing what or who to believe can also produce some tension now. It’s best to take a good look at your life to see what needs to change and improve so that you can act mindfully rather than on a whim.
LibraThere can be an idea or cause that motivates you now, dear Libra, and creative and intellectual endeavors are especially favored. Someone might motivate or help bring more order to your life, even if it’s simply through words, and it’s most welcome. Taking a realistic, logical approach can be useful. Be honest with yourself and keep the moral high ground in your dealings with others for best results. As the day advances, some tensions can be rising as we approach a Mars-Uranus square. As well, the Moon moves into your sign, pushing your emotional needs to the top of your priorities list. Restlessness is likely, feel it strongly now, and change becomes necessary. Resisting change can lead to more complicated problems, and so can rebellious actions, so make plans to make improvements rather than react too quickly.
ScorpioToday’s energies are good for returning to an old problem and tackling it with new energy, dear Scorpio. You’re inclined to want to make plans and organize your work/chores and health pursuits, with a special focus on balance. Managing your time well is important now, particularly since we’re heading toward a rather erratic Mars-Uranus square that can point to unpredictability and changes of plans. Aim to draw comfort from some of your routines for the best results. You’re becoming more aware of the need for a balanced approach in your diet and with your habits. As the day advances, the Mars-Uranus influence strengthens. Mars, currently transiting your sector of home, family, and personal needs, clashes with Uranus, transiting your sector of partnerships, and this aspect reminds you to remain flexible since you can’t control everything. Someone may be unreliable, which can cause some tension and frustration, but your resilience can surprise you. Circumstances and feelings experienced today can remind you of the need to release an attachment to a particular method or even a person if it’s excessive. Exercising self-control and focus puts you in a good place for making plans for improvement.
SagittariusA key person in your life–or relationship goals, in general–can inspire you to reach new heights or to learn a new skill, dear Sagittarius. The pressure to do too much too soon is possible as the day advances and a Mars-Uranus square comes into play. However, you might find a hobby, pastime, or love pursuit helpful, healing, and stabilizing. You might discover very effective channels for your creativity. Later today, tensions can mount. With Mars in your solar third house these days, you can be engrossed in your personal interests and projects. If you’ve been ignoring other needs in the process, however, circumstances now may seem to force you to pay attention! While friction stimulated now can bring out the inventiveness in you, it’s wise not to act rashly. Consider that if the things that excite you are interfering with order and happiness in other areas of your life, especially concerning daily routines and work, you might put a plan in place to restore order. Identify areas that require more flexibility. There can be a tendency to rush through communications, which should be avoided.
CapricornThis can be a good time for creative solutions to combine work or chores with home life, dear Capricorn, as Chiron in your home sector in harmony with Vesta in your work and health sector. On another level, it’s a good time to heal rifts, cooperate towards a special goal, and even out your expectations. You’ll find that the major key to happiness at this time is moderation. Dedicating yourself to a project or activity can be both useful and healing. Opportunities emerge to get a real handle on your home life. Even so, a Mars-Uranus aspect occurring tomorrow can raise tensions today, especially as the day advances. Erratic elements or disorder in your life can start to stick out. You might want to examine whether stubbornness about a method, plan, or approach is truly worth it, or if it even serves you well. If you’ve been overdoing your focus on one life department, you are likely to feel quite a bit of tension later today and tomorrow, or there can be a clash between you and someone over an issue of respect/values. Keep in mind that much of the restlessness felt at this time may very well have its root in an inner conflict between a drive for security and an attraction to what you can’t have right now.
AquariusYou can experience the building of motivation and enthusiasm today, dear Aquarius. It’s a good time for sharing ideas and rediscovering interests. Moderation seems the best approach, although a Mars-Uranus square coming into play today might try to convince you otherwise! Still, there can be satisfying progress made with your studies or a special interest. Those of you recommitting to your studies are in particularly good shape for success. Reasonable expectations help your life across the board, but especially with current projects, studies, creative pursuits, and relationships. As the day progresses, there can be disruptions and distractions with Mars, currently in your sign, clashing with Uranus, your planetary ruler. This aspect tends to force an issue where you or people in your life have been resistant to change. Watch for impatient, abrupt, or rebellious moves. Consider that you may need to take a short breather from your pursuits so that you can restore some sense of order in other life departments. If you’ve been feeling restricted or overruled lately, then you’ll need to release some frustration now — ideally in constructive ways! The solution is not to fight things blindly, but to seek out ways to assert your needs in a healthy, unforced manner.
PiscesThere can be nice prospects related to your resources today, dear Pisces, or the chance to stretch things and make improvements. Efforts to improve family life, particularly in terms of structure and order, can be fruitful now. A moderate approach seems wisest now, although a Mars-Uranus transit on the horizon can make it hard to keep things on an even keel. Focusing on organizing your things can be both useful and healing. It’s a good time to ask yourself what you can do to make your current circumstances more rewarding. The desire to make yourself and your loved ones more secure or to improve home and family life is motivating, but it’s your reasonable expectations that help you achieve what you set out to do. Later today, matter you’ve buried can emerge in unexpected ways if you’re provoked. Frustration can be triggered seemingly out of the blue, from a dream, or from a hunch. Your need for time to yourself is pressing, but you also have a keen interest in keeping up your communications with others. Consider that putting too much of your energies into one thing can backfire as it disrupts other areas of your life and seek out a better balance. This may very well be at the heart of any tension that arises now.
