Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Mars is moving into alignment with Uranus in your sign for the final time before Uranus moves out of Aries for good, dear Aries. You can be feeling quite riled up, ready to handle a matter or put something behind you! Having seven years of Uranus in your sign under your belt, you’re now, ideally, in a better position to understand your needs and desires. Your need for more personal freedoms and authentic self-expression has been intense. Do watch for angry, slapdash, aggressive, or rash outbursts and decisions that force an issue now. Be the one in charge by honoring your heart rather than reacting with your ego. This Mars-Uranus aspect encourages you to take on the world, and changes in plans or directions are likely. A friendship matter can come to a head for some of you. If you focus on making improvements rather than grand gestures or big moves, you’ll more thoroughly enjoy your week!
This can be a time when you’re dreaming up particularly innovative ideas for pursuing your dreams, dear Taurus, and taking care of unfinished business at the same time. There is temperamental energy with us today, and an unforeseen problem might arise, although it’s likely to do with matters that you’ve left unresolved or open. Unusual or sudden desires emerge that likely have to do with your past. Consider consequences, but if you need to break out of a bad habit or a frustrating circumstance, this electric energy might give you the perfect push to do so. Indeed, as Mars and Uranus come together in your privacy sector, something unusual or unexpected can occur, or a problem may crop up related to a loose end. A career or reputation matter can also rev up now, and a break from the past can occur. Even a symbolic break is appropriate now as you’re turning over a new leaf.
A configuration in your social sector points to sudden or abrupt actions related to friends, projects, and plans, dear Gemini. This energy can stimulate a bold new idea or plan for the future! An educational or travel matter can come to a head now for some of you. A symptom of discontent can be a desire to do something in a big way today, but it’s best to focus on improvement rather than expansion. This can be a day of sudden discovery and actions, and perhaps the motivation or courage for making changes to a friendship or group association. Surprising events surrounding a connection may figure strongly, but because the eleventh house also has to do with happiness goals, dreams, and wishes, events occurring now can just as easily stimulate a new idea or plan for the future, and it can be a breakthrough one.
Mars joins Uranus in your solar tenth house now, dear Cancer, and you can experience this as a prompt to make a big career or money move. The desire or need to break free from situations that restrict or limit you is hard to ignore now, and it can be positive if it gives you the courage to make long overdue changes. Keep in mind that it can be tricky distinguishing between impulse and intuition, so do your best to tune out distractions and get in touch with your actual needs. This can certainly be a time to rock the boat or to dare to do things a little differently. Your ideas, particularly business ones, are exceptionally innovative and progressive right now. Finances and intimate matters can also rev up now.
Uranus is on its last leg of its transit of your spirit sector, dear Leo, and Mars joins with Uranus now, stimulating a desire to make a stand or to achieve a breakthrough. This is a powerful week for last-minute changes to an educational path, belief system, and mental focus or attitude. A relationship matter can rev up for some. If you’ve been itching to do something entirely new and adventurous, then these energies can push you into action, especially to make changes so that you live more freely and authentically. A new way of thinking or belief system may even emerge now. An impulse to explore, discover, and learn can come on strongly, as the energies of today and this week push us to see where we need to make changes so that we can grow, improve, and stretch ourselves mentally.
Uranus is on the last leg of its journey through your intimacy sector, dear Virgo, and now aligns with Mars. It’s a powerful time for moving on from an unstable period related to your intimate life, financial situation, or support, perhaps with one more push or thrust! You may have a strong desire to clear up excess debt, both material and psychic, and to get rid of excess baggage, in general. This is a time for mustering up the courage to make meaningful changes, but it’s important to distinguish between impulse and intuition. Reacting keeps you tied to others in uncomfortable ways while taking action puts you in charge of your life. Watch for surprises or sudden moves in an intimate relationship now. Tricky issues related to close relationships, work, or health are forced now. Letting go of something that has already expired or outgrown its usefulness can lead to a real sense of freedom and liberation. It’s a time for breaking free from a destructive habit or circumstance.
Uranus is on the last leg of its long seven-year transit of your partnership sector, dear Libra, and meets with Mars now, perhaps forcing an issue or creating some fireworks. This is a powerful period for taking care of last-minute details, although there is some tendency to act impulsively or rashly. You might awaken to a plan, mission, or increased bravery for handling a problem once and for all! New developments in a relationship can demand new approaches. Your goal this week should be to make changes that help you live more authentically and less fearfully. Expect the unexpected when it comes to people in your life now with this fiery energy. There may be an assertion of independence or courage to make connections, or it can suggest others taking the lead or being demanding. Since Uranus rules your creativity and romance sector, it can relate to taking action on a romantic or creative matter.
Uranus is now on the final stretch of its transit of your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, meeting up with Mars today and tomorrow. This combination stirs the pot! In truth, you’re moving on from an unstable period related to your daily routines, health, and self-care programs, and there may be one final push now that involves taking action to improve your work or habits. This might also relate to taking action on a home and family matter. You can be quite pumped up to make changes, and you recognize that your habits require an innovative approach or new direction. You should probably watch for impulsiveness or flaring tempers, but do use this spark of energy to correct conditions that are holding you back from achieving good health and habits, and from more fully enjoying your daily life, including your work and chores. Those things that have been holding you back from expressing your authentic creative self may also come under scrutiny now with this make-or-break energy.
Uranus is on the final stretch of its transit through your romance and pleasure sector, dear Sagittarius, and meets with Mars now, creating some fireworks! This is a time of strong motivation to express yourself in unique ways or to break free from a confining situation or label. There may be a sudden attraction or romantic connection now, or a final move or decision that pushes a matter forward–perhaps a make-or-break situation. Be careful not to become over-confident when it comes to taking risks now. For best results, aim to act from the heart rather than merely react or respond to changing circumstances. Rebelliousness is not likely to serve you well, but making courageous changes can work out to your advantage. There can be a project or your studies coming to a head, and sudden desires to change direction can be powerful, indeed.
Mars and Uranus align in your home and family sector, dear Capricorn, and this potent combination occurs not long before Uranus leaves this sector of your solar chart for good. Making an empowering change related to your domestic world or living conditions/arrangements can figure strongly now. Actions taken this week may help settle your domestic life, ultimately. A money or income matter can come to a head. Putting clutter or a weighty money matter behind you can be in order. Be cautious about making massive changes if desires come on suspiciously quickly, but keep yourself open to new methods for handling old problems. This influence can lead to a breakthrough moment or turning point, and the goal is a lighter load. There is some tendency to react impulsively or even immaturely, but you can choose to curb it.
With Mars and Uranus aligning for the final time in your solar third house, dear Aquarius, exciting developments with studies, discussions, relationships with fellow students or siblings, and learning are in the offing. This is your chance for expressing your independence and enterprising spirit. You excel at innovation in general, and this is especially the case right now. News can come that steers you on a new course. Desires might be fleeting, however, so do watch that you don’t pour too much energy into something that may later lose your interest. Watch for impatience on the road or with mechanical devices today, since distractions can lead to mess-ups. However, do embrace the chance to make happy changes. Your appeal is high today, and with some care, this can be a time for pushing a matter that’s been a long time coming! You’re certainly standing out for your unique ideas or perspective.
Uranus will be leaving your resources sector for good on March 6th after seven years there, dear Pisces, making the coming weeks a period for exciting developments involving your income, finances, valuables, talents, or assets. Today and tomorrow, Mars and Uranus meet in this sector of your solar chart, bringing a burst of energy that’s best used wisely and mindfully. You might aim to take action rather than merely react to what’s happening around you. The focus should now be on putting dysfunctional projects or attitudes behind you. There is a strong need to free yourself from traditional approaches to business and money making, as well as over-attachment to personal possessions so that you can move forward more freely and authentically. Unusual or unexpected events surrounding your finances can arise. While you may want to tame impulses to spend that come on too suddenly, circumstances are pushing you into new and hopefully improved directions with money and business. Be courageous and bold while avoiding the taking of unnecessary risks.
