Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Sun begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Aries, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 23rd. Work and routines can come into sharp focus now, and so can health or fitness goals. You may want to improve your schedules and habits now, and the New Moon on the 30th will help you move new projects along these lines forward. Renewed energy and motivation for work and routines are with you in the weeks ahead. This cycle is not the best for recognition or worldly success, but it’s an excellent transit for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success. With the Moon’s clash to the Sun, Venus, and Mars today, your mind may be working too fast right now, and you should watch for putting too much on your plate. Ease yourself into things!
The Sun begins its month-long visit of your solar fifth house today, dear Taurus. This transit awakens your desire to create, stimulates your pride and sense of being in charge of your life, and encourages you to express yourself. Any latent needs to perform, entertain, have fun, attract love, and express yourself creatively come to the fore in the weeks ahead. A New Moon on the 30th can push these things forward. It’s an excellent time to recognize and stoke your natural need for some “play” time. This cycle lasts until September 23rd and is complementary to your sign, subtly boosting your life in crucial ways. Improved relations with children and with romantic partners can be in focus, and it’s a fine cycle in which to launch a unique project or hobby. Today, this new energy can feel a little jarring in spots–you may have a lot of plans but require some patience to sort them out. The Moon’s move into your solar second house inclines you to seek predictability and security. Certainly, with much planetary activity in your outgoing, creative sector, it makes sense to center yourself for the sake of clarity.
There is quite a shift happening toward your home and family sector these days, dear Gemini. Today, the Sun moves in for a month-long stay, and in the weeks ahead, you’ll be most concerned with domestic and personal matters. Of course, the outside world will need your attention, but your interests seem to lie in getting comfortable and secure. Soothe yourself with the familiar and aim to shore yourself up. The needs of family and the home environment may not necessarily increase, but you’ll tune into them more strongly. This is a time for bringing healing, refinement, and organization to your home life and family relationships. It’s also a time for nesting and getting in touch with what’s in your heart. It’s certainly not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun’s journey through your chart, but it’s vital for a sense of identity, comfort, and self-knowledge. Also today, the Moon moves into your sign. While your sudden need to attend to your needs for independence can seem to conflict with other goals, you can end up highly motivated to make changes. Try not to over-manage things now.
Venus and Mars have just recently entered your communications sector, dear Cancer, and the Sun joins them today. The Sun will influence this area of your solar chart until September 23rd. It can be a busy time of thinking, talking, connecting, moving about, and learning. It can also be a scattered period in spots! Because demands on you–and your own interests–can be very diverse during this cycle, it can be challenging to work on a particular project with exclusive focus. Even so, this cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. There can be a lot of comings and goings! Fun new interests or exciting news and topics can figure strongly now. Aim to get into touch with others and to handle some of the critical details of your life. While there are many signs that things are speeding up for you, the Moon heads into your privacy sector for a couple of days. It would be wise to carve out some time for quiet, rest, and reflection–it’s a fine time for a healthy escape.
You’re shifting gears after a strong showing of planets in your sign, dear Leo. Today, the Sun enters your solar second house–another sign that life should be slowing down a little. Your focus is turning to what it is that makes you feel secure and comfortable. Money and possessions can assume more importance in your life in the coming weeks. So can matters of comfort, sensual enjoyment, and activities that remind you of the simple pleasures in life. Until September 23rd, you may find yourself frequently looking around to assess what you have and consider what you need. It’s a fine time for streamlining your life in critical ways. You’re in the mood to get comfortable, established, and secure. While this theme is strong and building, the Moon moves into your solar eleventh house for a couple of days. This transit encourages branching out, experimenting, and considering future needs. Just for now, allow your innovative side to emerge.
The Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit of your sign today, dear Virgo. This transit begins a new “birthday year,” and when your birthday does occur, remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions. It’s a time for making changes that truly improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. The New Moon in your sign will occur on the 30th, and it’s quite spectacular this year with so much planetary representation in Virgo. If you’ve wanted to make changes to the image you project or to your attitude toward new beginnings, then this is an excellent time for doing so. It’s time to shine! As well, you’re in good shape for spending some extra time on personal plans. Today’s Quarter Moon can be motivating ultimately, but you can also feel a bit restless initially. An inner conflict about going your own way and doing what’s expected of you could figure strongly. Even so, the motivation to fix problems is bound to emerge.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of your solar twelfth house today, dear Libra, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 23rd. This is a yearly cycle of rest and reflection as you gather your strength for busier times to come. Certain elements of your life may be coming to a natural conclusion. It’s a time for sorting things out, digesting, and processing as you prepare for a new solar year that begins next month. Pulling back a little from situations that are excessively demanding or competitive makes sense. Next month, you’ll have all eyes on you and life will throw more opportunities your way. Until then, it’s best to prepare, reflect, and put some things in your past. The Moon moves into your adventurous solar ninth house today, however. Breaking free from the routine can be attractive, but you could feel a little stuck on how to go about it. Aim for activities that refresh your spirit.
The Sun begins its transit of your solar eleventh house today, dear Scorpio, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 23rd. Increasingly, you’re focusing on your needs for friendship, happiness goals, and new plans and dreams. You may be networking and socializing more than usual, or more actively participating and contributing. This can be a time for filling up with new ideas and dreams for the future. It’s a time for free thinking, sharing, connecting, networking, and openness. You seem to shine the brightest during this cycle when you are teaming up with others or working towards goals you believe in. Also today, however, the Moon moves into your intimacy sector. This brief transit serves as a contrast to the light, airy, and forward-looking shift that’s occurring in your life. Feeling on the fence or undecided may lead to more insight into your desires, needs, relationships, and projects, however. You might learn of something helpful that was previously hidden or private.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of your solar tenth house, dear Sagittarius. During this cycle, you’ll be bringing more power, focus, and conscious, directed energy to your goals, career, reputation, performance, or responsibilities. It’s a take-charge time for professional and public efforts, especially after the New Moon on the 30th. You are in higher demand, and there can be more attention to your performance and accomplishments now. You can come to a high point of the year in your career or reputation. You are increasingly more aware of your impact on the world, and this focus can impact many of your decisions in the weeks ahead. The Moon moves into your partnership sector today, however, and as ambitious as you may be feeling, it’s time to make room for companionship. You may be seeking company or feedback, even if it doesn’t initially feel intuitive. This is not about stepping backward–instead, it’s about giving some due attention to a key relationship.
The Sun begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Capricorn, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until September 23rd. Over the coming month, your more adventurous nature emerges. Whether you’re getting out and about more often or expanding your mind and interests, it’s a time to refresh your spirit. You are more inclined to philosophize and share your opinions and ideas with others. Your aspirations and ideals are stronger driving forces in your life now and in the weeks ahead, especially with Mars and Venus also in this area of your solar chart. Energy is likely to be higher, and stress levels lower! Today, the Moon heads into your detail-oriented solar sixth house, however. This energy seems to contrast with the influences in your solar ninth house, encouraging you to see the bigger picture. You can feel restless until you center yourself. It may be best to do some organizing or tidying work that helps you clear your mind and schedule.
In the weeks ahead, there is likely to be an increased focus on intimate connections and sharing or financial and emotional support in your life, dear Aquarius. With the Sun moving into your solar eighth house for a month-long visit, life is becoming a little more serious, or you’re seeking something more substantial. Absorbing activities and projects seem most attractive now. Your intimate world assumes more importance, and you take particular notice of the less obvious elements of circumstances and people around you. This is the time to connect with and explore your deeper needs and wants, and it’s an important period for self-honesty. It can also be a time for handling trickier matters. If you need regeneration, such as kicking a bad habit, this is a good time to do so. The Moon enters a sunnier area of your chart today, however, and a sudden need for lighter interactions can come on strongly. It may be best to answer this call, even if it seems counter-intuitive at first.
The Sun enters your relationship sector today, dear Pisces, where it will transit until September 23rd. This is a time for competing fairly, wanting to be around someone special, making a commitment, assuming your share of responsibility in a partnership, compromising, and cooperating. You take more pride in how you get along with others, and how well you find harmony and balance in your personal environment. You are learning about what you want and what you’re prepared to give. It’s a more social time of the year, and there can be a spotlight on close friendships and partnerships. A new beginning in these areas is likely after the New Moon on the 30th. Today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector, however, and you need some peace and calm. Consider that even with a strong call to socialize, the need to center yourself is essential before you can share yourself more freely and happily with others.
