Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Your intuition for business and money matters is particularly strong, dear Aries. You want to move forward or clear the decks for new beginnings related to work and income. You are motivated to find a resolution for ongoing problems. Your enterprising nature is alive and well now. Hunches and instincts seem on-point, although brand new beginnings and launches should probably wait for after the New Moon on the 30th. Your approach to getting things done can be different but highly effective. You’re inspired but practical-minded today and this week. You’re energized and motivated to make progress. You can tackle issues with courage and energy that may be missing on other days. You may very well lay the groundwork for putting a health or money problem behind you. You want to make a real difference. Sudden events or opportunities push you into a new direction. Letting go of fear can open up creativity and improve your health. Current transits encourage unusual or different moves and methods.
Mars and Uranus are approaching a harmonious aspect today, dear Taurus, and it’s strong for you due to Uranus’ current transit of your sign. You’re opening up to new interests, channels for expression, and different feelings or pleasures. Creative enthusiasm is with you, and there is more of this to come in the coming weeks. There can be high energy or improvements surrounding creative projects, children, a romance, or a friend. You can be particularly focused on what you can update and upgrade. It can be a time for feeling especially vital and confident. You need your space, and you are protective of your independence, but you are friendly, motivated, and connected. Others admire you for your unique style and perspective. Even so, the Moon enters your home and family sector later today, and you are also in need of some rest and downtime.
This week is wonderful for discovering new things and connecting with your feelings, dear Gemini. You may wish to clear the air, or surprises are in store with your feelings and affections. Anything that limits you will meet your resistance today! Your impressions are accurate and your hunches powerful. The desire to act on an impulse can be strong, or an opportunity can open up to explore a new feeling. You might also feel especially excited to move past a previous restriction. In fact, you’re looking to actively to put a problem behind you now as Mars and Uranus form a supportive trine connecting your private sectors. It can be a good time for breaking through an emotional barrier or for resolving a home-related problem.
Life seems to speed up a little, or your confidence gets a nice boost, dear Cancer. A Mars-Uranus transit can find you enthusiastic and interested in learning and doing new things. Exciting ideas can come to you, and the hatching process can be refreshing. Efforts to learn or develop skills are favored. Breakthrough thinking or sudden, positive discoveries can happen today. Freeing yourself from a problem or taking steps to move past a troubling situation can figure strongly. Teamwork, activities with friends, or networking can be beneficial or inspire new ideas and insights. Early today, however, choose your battles wisely! Frustrations are possible, but they can also help fuel your desire to make changes later.
Energies with you now are excellent for gaining the courage to try something new or approach an old problem in a new and unique way, dear Leo. There can be a breakthrough method or change of attitude and confidence boost that is exciting and motivating. Career, responsibilities, long-term plans, money, or reputation are areas where matters move forward, or the path is clearing for a fresh start. It’s a time for expressing your originality or being recognized for your innovation. There can be unique insights and intuition into business and work methods. Given a bit of space to think and follow your hunches, you can be particularly resourceful and enterprising. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign, and emotional energy runs high.
A Mars-Uranus trine today encourages you to tap into your natural courage, dear Virgo. While we are behind the New Moon and it’s better to wind down than start fresh, the wheels are turning. As well, this energy has more impact than usual since it’s happening close to the New Moon in your sign, and it should stick with you for a couple of weeks. Your spirit is progressive, and you’re happy to converse with others or exchange ideas. Your timing is right, and instincts are sharp. You are looking to improve, pioneer, and do things a little differently. While you’re looking forward for the most part, you can also be feeling a little on edge or a bit stubborn today, so it may be best if you can manage to work independently or at your own pace. You are gearing up to clear the decks for new beginnings, although you have several more days for rest and reflection. You want to make positive changes and break free from limitations now.
Frustration with a recent problem that’s cropping up again can get the better of you early today, dear Libra. A big deal of a situation or surrounding a matter or a person from your past can figure strongly. However, as the day progresses, you’ll find your energy increases, especially if you can put something to rest. A Mars-Uranus transit is progressive and assertive, and you’re likely to feel encouraged and excited to make personal improvements on emotional levels. Again today, you have little interest in routine or ordinary activities, preferring to seek something different or unexplored. You have a bit more courage to break through a limitation or taboo today and tomorrow. You’re discovering new feelings and desires, and the motivation to discover them is dominating. You may break out of a rut or find a release from an old obligation, and it feels good to do so.
An influence that opens you up to new ideas and desires related to your social life occurs now, dear Scorpio. This kind of energy was with you yesterday, as well, and today, there can be a pleasant surprise. Putting a problem behind you can leave you feeling lighter and freer. Focusing energies on something productive you can do with someone is apt to improve a bond. Teamwork or group and networking activities can lead to exciting opportunities, including a new friendship or even partnership. You’re a little more motivated than usual to make satisfying connections, and as life speeds up for you, it’s easier to make changes. Look for friendship and expansion opportunities, but do keep in mind that brand new beginnings may be better saved for after Friday’s New Moon. Later today, the Moon reaches the top of your solar chart, serving as a checkpoint for specific goals and stimulating your ambitions.
This week seems to inspire innovation, particularly in your work or in your daily affairs, dear Sagittarius. You have your eye on improvement, upgrades, and progress. While early today can find you entirely wound up with problem areas, as the day advances, your desire to make changes builds. The most out-there ideas seem to be the most interesting and thriving right now. If you can work at your own pace now, it may be easier to follow your intuition and great hunches. You are not interested in following all the rules to the letter. The things you’re doing or your ideas are particularly inventive. You’re in an excellent position to see where you can move forward with less baggage. A new approach seems to work best with health or routines, too. You are more courageous about moving on and trying new things. You could be causing a bit of a stir today.
Your sense of adventure is strong and building, dear Capricorn. The physical expression of your happy feelings may be particularly appealing now, since you may be craving spirited activity. Others find your added warmth and verve especially attractive. You’re a little more courageous and bold, and you’re moving on or letting go and pulling yourself out of a rut. You can be feeling some excitement about exploring a new and progressive path. Energies today and in the coming week stimulate your desire for new pleasures and experiences. You’ll find it increasingly more comfortable and natural to let go of recent frustrations and pressures and to move forward. A Mars-Uranus transit often encourages taking action to move an area of your life forward. This can happen through freeing yourself from a problem or burden, or for actively pursuing a desire or goal.
More breakthroughs on an emotional level are likely today and tomorrow, dear Aquarius. You’re willing to be brave and honest with yourself, and this process helps open you up to opportunities to make improvements. You can be excited by a new interest or line of thought. You’re looking to grow, improve, and innovate. You might tackle projects or endeavors that you may have put aside during less motivated times. Competitive feelings may drive you in the first half of the day, but as the day progresses, you’re focused on what you want, not reactions to what others want. Pleasant surprises or changes related to home and family can be part of the picture now. You need a change of pace, and exciting feelings and tastes motivate you. Today’s energies certainly stimulate your mind and desire to put your ideas into action. Being yourself without apology is most attractive to others.
The Moon in your entertainment zone for much of the day stimulates a desire or need to answer to your playful side, dear Pisces. A Mars-Uranus transit has a similar effect, but is even more insistent! This transit is forward-looking–there is no interest in dwelling on the past right now. Relationships may feel more progressive as if they are unsticking or you’re getting past a problem that’s been keeping you from growing and thriving. People in your life may be a little more open-minded than usual or more willing to let you be yourself. You feel happy and comfortable expressing yourself. You’re also in good shape for exploring new ideas and interests. Studies or projects can show signs of progress or they can motivate you to do something new and bold. While the excitement of innovation sticks with you later today, you’re also drumming up to take care of business.
