Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You can be see-sawing between caution and the desire to push forward today, dear Aries, and decision-making can undoubtedly suffer as a result. If you can, leave it for a time when more facts are available to you and you’re more confident and aware of what you truly want. Chiron and Vesta are heading into alignment in your sign, however, and this can stimulate rather magical energy around you, encouraging breakthrough thinking, self-improvement, and health and wellness initiatives. This can also bring out the guide or teacher in you, as others are drawn in by your healing aura and natural wisdom. You are open and willing, and you could discover a renewed or new motivation to improve your approach to life. This lifts your spirits. It’s a fabulous time for body therapy, learning, healing, and sharing, and for a commitment to self-improvement.
The Moon finishes its transit of your sign today, dear Taurus, and then enters your resources sector, and you’re in firm touch with your emotions and needs. You can feel impulsive at times today, and your attractions, whether to material objects, situations, or people, can be unusual or sudden, but may not last for very long. Ideally, these stimulate new thinking. While there is some inconstancy to the energies of the day, this is also an essential time for discovering ways to get over mental or emotional blocks. You might commit to a new method of healing that inspires you, or you might decide to work on ridding yourself of negative attitudes and situations that have been holding you back from thoroughly enjoying your life. Breakthroughs in thinking, living, being, and healing can be in focus now. Forgiveness may be part of all of this and is a powerful healer in and of itself. You’ll find this can be a long-term theme in your life now that Chiron is transiting your solar twelfth house. Today, a break from the routine can be especially helpful.
Restlessness is possible today, dear Gemini, but with the Moon in your privacy sector for much of the day, it’s better to keep activities simple so that you can find ways to renew and refresh your emotions. The Moon does emerge in your sign as it enters Gemini today, and this can stir up the need for a stronger connection to the world around you later today. There can be short spells of impatience today that could prompt actions that you later regret, so it’s best to aim to act from the heart rather than blindly reacting to what’s going on around you. There is some nice energy with you now, however, that’s particularly good for helping others to find themselves or to discover their talents. You may feel freer to express your individuality or your more unorthodox ideas and plans. It’s a time for feeling especially inspired and perhaps for a breakthrough in your social life.
There can be some fussiness to deal with today, dear Cancer, and you might want to watch that you don’t attempt to fix situations or people when it would be better to leave these things alone to play out naturally. However, today holds reliable energy for finding your mission or calling, or for steps in that direction. You might enjoy a renewed sense of purpose or dedication to a particular path that comes as a result of new insight or methods and approaches discovered now. On some level, this is about your life purpose, and it’s important to open yourself up to information coming in these days, in addition to your intuition, feelings, and responses. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, marking the start of a two-day cycle for emotional retreat, renewal, and replenishment.
An unusual desire or whim may take hold and send you on a wild goose chase, dear Leo, or more ideally, in a new direction of discovery. Interestingly, attractions can be both alluring and repulsing now but are likely to fade rather quickly as Venus forms a minor clash with Uranus. While impulsivity and rebelliousness are possible now, it’s also a time for learning and teaching, and for committing to a new mission to improve. You can have eye-opening experiences and discoveries that may be powerful enough to alter the way you look at your life, your belief systems, your philosophy, or could push you along an educational path or to enjoy new mental interests. There can be the refueling of an interest in a particular subject, lifestyle, or way of thinking as a result of what you’re discovering now. You’re developing a stronger sense of mission, and perhaps a hunger for new experiences, faith, and understanding with Chiron now transiting your solar ninth house.
Some crossed wires or whims taking hold now can leave you somewhat blind for effective decision-making just for now, dear Virgo, so it’s better to wait it out. It can be difficult to judge the real value of things, people, and possibly even situations when you’re feeling impulsive or restless. There can be some fickleness in relationships or canceled social engagement to manage. Even so, there is also good energy with you for coming to a breakthrough of sorts in a research project, a psychological problem, or an intimate relationship with Chiron and Vesta about to join forces in your solar eighth house. This new insight can reignite your motivation or dedication to a particular field of study, personal growth path, or possibly even a relationship. You’re in good shape for healing, or you could be motivated to take a track that makes you feel more in charge or empowered.
It may be best to avoid trying to persuade others to make changes today, dear Libra, as there is somewhat rebellious energy to the day that can keep people from humbling themselves to others’ advice. Despite this, you may very well think up creative ways for relating that can be a breath of fresh air for a relationship as much as it is a pleasant break from the traditional. There is also wonderful energy with you now for gaining new insight that fuels your desire to pursue a particular path or to make a relationship choice. With Chiron and Vesta about to join forces in your partnership sector, there can be a breakthrough of understanding with a significant someone, or of a particular relationship, past or present, and this can boost your mood and sense of mission. You might feel inspired to dedicate yourself to a particular choice or lifestyle change or improvement. Today is particularly strong for increased understanding.
The need for excitement is strong today and tomorrow, dear Scorpio, but you’re also hungry for balance and steadiness. A bit of a tug of war can result if you let yourself get caught up in what others are and aren’t doing. Try not to let sudden desires take over and spoil the fun, as there is good energy for relating to people on different terms than the norm if you seek it out. Easy cooperation may not be in the cards otherwise, and it’s best to resolve to rely on yourself and go from there. This way, if others get on board, then it’s a bonus. Fortunately, with Chiron and Vesta about to join forces in your solar sixth house, you may be able to gain new insight into a health or work matter. At the very least, it’s a strong time for discovering new methods or for coming to breakthroughs related to work or health. Your motivation is fueled, and you can be inspired to dedicate yourself to a particular project or path.
Putting your faith in others’ schedules or promises today could be a lesson in frustration today, dear Sagittarius, and your best bet is to change things up a little so that you’re not repeating the same old patterns. There can be changes of mind and heart right now. Traditional methods and patterns of relating don’t seem to satisfy or work well today, making a new approach necessary. Family life may be a bit scattered as well, but it’s nothing a refreshing change of pace can’t resolve. As well, this can be a good time for learning a little more about your creative power or even for a love breakthrough of sorts as you understand a relationship or project in a whole new way. You may feel a renewed or new dedication and commitment as a result. For some, this can be an awakening or reawakening to a hobby, talent, or creative path.
It may be best to channel your energy into tasks that require physical effort or that genuinely improve your personal environment, dear Capricorn, as energy left unchanneled could easily become nervous tension. Satisfy an itch for a change in small, harmless ways instead of making sweeping decisions that you may not be fully equipped to make at the moment. Fortunately, we have Chiron and Vesta heading into alignment, and as it occurs in your home and family sector, it can help you focus and dedicate yourself to a constructive project. A breakthrough now can reinvigorate or inspire a home project or family activity. You may very well conclude that you have a valid need for more security, familiarity, and nurturing to love and live your life more fully and make a commitment to seeking these things.
Watch for very sudden wants and desires today, dear Aquarius, particularly when shopping! Impulse buys may not be wise for the moment, but they’re also more likely now as Venus and Uranus form a minor clashing aspect. Whims not just for material things can be in strong focus, and ideally, they lead you to new and more inspired ways of thinking or relating instead of to a state of regret. Also today, you benefit from helpful energy that inspires a strong desire to work on problem areas, particularly related to communicating, siblings, and learning. It can be a brave time for releasing your troubles by communicating them, such as through journaling, blogging, or conversing. Storytelling can be therapeutic. You can do an excellent job of teaching others how to cope in areas that have been difficult for you in the past with Chiron now in your communications sector for many years. Finding new methods of dealing with the pressures of daily life can be in focus. For some, there can be a breakthrough related to learning or a relationship barrier.
Productivity may be low in some areas today, dear Pisces, as your desire for ease and pleasure is stronger than usual and can interfere with work. Overindulgence is possible if you’re not in touch with what could be making you restless, although what may be at the heart of this is a need for a change of pace. Make changes instead of feeling at the mercy of circumstances, even if it’s as simple as changing around your schedule or looking into a new topic or interest. As well today and tomorrow, you could have a breakthrough related to money or business, and this can reinvigorate your motivation to pursue a particular path or to take better care of your money and resources. Instead, this may be about new insight into a talent, and this serves to boost your confidence and similarly inspire a new pursuit.
