Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You have good instincts for business today, dear Aries, among other things! Enjoy the new ideas flooding in. You can feel a strong urge to do something out of the ordinary, too. A positive attitude tends to have the effect of moving obstacles out of your way — at the very least, the self-imposed constraints. You’re inclined to get a whole lot done, even if this is mostly happening behind the scenes. Your confidence is strong, and willpower matches. You can be feeling just enough competitiveness that motivates you and gets you places. It’s a good time for taking care of business with more courage and confidence. You’re bravely putting problems behind you!
It’s a fine time to be as open, willing, positive, and faithful as feels comfortable, dear Taurus, as the Sun and Mars connect harmoniously, presenting opportunities to make improvements to your life, particularly related to your happiness goals and social affairs. Decisions made with (or about) friends and groups can be in focus, and you tend to make them quickly and confidently. There could be a significant new connection formed that may come on suddenly but it feels right! You may be inspired to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan, and this can also feel like perfect timing. There is some inclination to impulsiveness with Mars in your sign these days, but if you are listening to gut instincts rather than merely reacting to people around you, then you’re in good form.
With the Sun and Mars forming a harmonious aspect now, dear Gemini, you want to handle problems right away rather than let them fester or grow, and this is the right time to take action. You have a wonderful sense of what people want. Fortunate connections could be made now, mainly related to life path and career goals. Your intuition tends to back up your decisions now. This can be a time for coming to a meaningful conclusion about specific directions your life is taking, and the appropriate course of action comes to you naturally. You are in an excellent position to make a career move or judgment that sets you on an improved path.
This is a beautiful time for gaining emotional fuel, dear Cancer, particularly through your connections. Making changes seems to come instinctively because you are working with an open mind and you’re answering calls to spontaneity. Accepting new ideas and exploring different topics come naturally now, and there could be a decision made regarding friendship, travel, or education. Passions rise, and enthusiasm is strong. It’s a fine time to pair up with others to get something done or answer your own call to learn or experience something new.
You might get the opportunity to collect on a debt or pay off one now, dear Leo, as the Sun and Mars harmonize. It’s a good time to make contacts who help you manage money or who readily support you. Drawing upon resources you never knew you had can be in focus and rewarding. It’s an active time for professional matters, but you may need to tone down your manner if you know you’re right and others are not yet seeing it! Think “soft sell” for best results. Indeed, your natural enthusiasm is probably enough to sell a good idea or plan. You find it easier than usual to make quick decisions and to take positive action on matters.
This can be a powerful time for bonding with family, dear Virgo, and enthusiasm stirred up now can take you far. You may be seeking to feel more vital, alive, and vibrant through other people or relationships. Others can inspire you to act with confidence or to get moving on a matter. While you’re feeling motivated, you’re not inclined to go into overdrive, and this is a good thing. Steady energy helps you get things done now. Willingness to stray a little from the usual routine can be key to improving a relationship, or to a bonding moment. It seems that pairing up gets the job done best at the moment! There can be a solid sense that life is getting better.
This is a time that favors an attitude that’s a little bolder and more confident, dear Libra, and you’re tuning in. You don’t want to be constrained or limited now, and there can be a stronger desire to take action on matters that you’ve put to the side. There can be excellent opportunities to make important contacts through work or the pursuit of your health or daily routines, and you’re in a strong position for solving problems and crossing off items on your “to do” list. You may very well solve a mystery that has baffled you for some time. Ideally, you’re able to do things that allow you to meander a little outside of the lines or rules. You’re not afraid of plunking yourself into a situation with some unknowns, as you’re looking for a challenge!
A Sun-Mars connection stimulates daring and spontaneous energy, dear Scorpio, and it looks good on you! You are enthusiastic and ready to make changes, particularly on creative levels and regarding your relationships. There can be nice developments in the areas of creativity, romance, or hobbies. You might make connections that advance your personal interests, and especially the more heartfelt pursuits. The inclination now is to make quick decisions, mainly because you are a little tired of overthinking and you’re tuning into and trusting your intuition. Perhaps you’re too impatient to think a matter through, and you’d prefer to throw yourself into a situation and then deal with the consequences. Fortunately, your instincts seem to be quite good.
You’re in the mood to take action on a matter, dear Sagittarius, as the Sun and Mars harmonize. You might decide to rearrange your living setup or reorganize your work or work environment. You are less dependent on others’ approval and a little bolder and more outgoing, and possibly a little self-centered, which is a good thing if not overdone or done too often! You are inclined to strike out on your own, and it can feel good to do so, even if you are generally keeping a low profile at this time. Working from or on the home can be especially fruitful. It’s better to think in terms of building solid foundations rather than seeking out immediate returns, even if the day’s energies are on the impulsive side. Even little changes can satisfy you now. The important thing is that you’re feeling confident and you’re ready to improve your life.
Pleasing energy connects communications and learning with creativity in your life today, dear Capricorn, and the urge to get something done is with you. The Sun is transiting your communications sector, and today forms a happy connection with action-oriented, confident Mars in your creative sector, pointing to a creative and dynamic time. You might receive news that opens up doors for you, enjoy some affectionate communications or an innovative learning experience, or you could make some exciting new contacts. You’re alert, ready to make changes, and willing to put yourself out there, and this is a winning combination! You also benefit from the Moon’s alignment with Jupiter in your privacy sector, which tends to boost your inner confidence.
You are enthusiastic and somewhat competitive in a healthy way now with the Sun and Mars in harmony, dear Aquarius. This aspect boosts your confidence about going after what you want. Don’t discount a bit of a self-centered streak now–it’s beneficial if it’s a healthy dose of me-focus. Home life can be pleasingly animated. There can be a strong urge to handle problem areas in and around the home or with family, and the chances of making some super improvements are high. There can be an increase in your confidence to make certain decisions or to take action on matters that you’ve let slide or ignored. You can be particularly eager to improve your income or your sense of comfort and security at home, and it’s the right time to put your energies into making improvements.
With the Sun and Mars in harmony today, dear Pisces, there is more bravery or courage in your actions, and perhaps in your communications as well, especially if you’re offering information about yourself. It’s a good time for positive feedback. This can be a time when you’re acting more decisively, when you’re more responsive, and others especially enjoy your company and input. The Sun is in your sign, after all, and Mars is boosting your courage. Conversations are a little more significant and meaningful for you right now. You’re also really feeling the need to pour your energies into your studies, personal interests, or special project, which seem to deserve your undivided attention. Focusing and pursuing a venture with confidence seems just the right approach right now.
