Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The potential for feeling empowered by your goals and motivated to reach them is high today, dear Aries. While on many levels you are thinking of the long view these days, you are also very much interested in getting immediate tasks done and solving everyday problems quickly and efficiently. Today, you have an excellent sense of the future, but you also get a nice boost of power for getting things done. While your independence is in the spotlight, people around you seem to be pulling their weight, and it feels good. It’s a fine time for putting your plans in motion, or for expressing yourself assertively. You can be outspoken today, with good results. This can be a wonderful time in your life for teaching, learning, networking, and sharing.
It can be a busy day mentally, dear Taurus, and making connections can be fruitful. Your mind is racing but in a manageable and motivating way–more like revved up and ready. It’s a time when you come to an important conclusion or think up a doable idea regarding a career or public move. Whether you’re called to speak on a matter or you’re communicating less officially, your words pack more punch than usual. You’re particularly motivated to pursue your ambitions, and you quickly draw upon facts and figures or memories that may have eluded you in recent days. It’s a favorable time for presenting your ideas or taking tests, and your enthusiasm and effort to communicate win points today. You are a little bolder in your decisions and actions, and perhaps more confident in what you’re doing and in your observations, which are very much on point. Some of you could gain support from a surprising or hidden source, and most should enjoy favorable attention from both superiors and peers.
This is a beautiful time for enjoying enthusiasm for your projects, ideas, or plans, dear Gemini, and you’re likely to want to share this good feeling. Talking and thinking are even more interesting than usual now, but you’re also interested in putting your plans in motion in some way as Mercury, your planetary ruler, connects with Mars, the “doer” of the planets. This is a good time for working on projects you want to publish, or for expanding your understanding of a subject. You’re also bound to attract people through your words and ideas. Sharing ideas can be fruitful today, with mutually beneficial agreements possible. Partnering up in some way can be rewarding especially with an open and generous spirit. This is a time for expanding a business, idea, or relationship, and for taking any of these things to new heights.
Problem-solving sharpens now, especially when inspired by a friend or lover, dear Cancer. It feels good to be decisive! This is a time for picking up the slack, performing, and producing. It’s also a fine time to assert your intimacy needs in a relationship. You can learn a lot about someone close to you as well. You’re exceptionally frank about what you want, and you quickly discover the best thing to say or do to get where you want to go. It’s an excellent “idea day” for business and finances, too. There can be excellent opportunities emerging through others related to work activities and research, and/or an intimate moment. Rewards for making improvements in your work or relationships can be apparent now, as you’re taking more pride in these things. You can thoroughly enjoy throwing yourself into a favorite project or activity.
You’re in a fine position to be heard and understood today, dear Leo. It’s also a time when you’re anxious to apply yourself to projects that excite you. Action-oriented conversations can figure strongly now. You feel inspired, and your enthusiasm is infectious. Today is especially keen for negotiations and dealings in general with others, particularly on a one-to-one level. You come across confidently, but you are also attracting confident, influential, or active people into your life. You’re able to push your agenda gently and support others in the process. It may be difficult to relax your mind entirely, but you are likely to find this invigorating rather than exhausting. You’re thinking about ways to expand your life experience beyond the routine, and you can be very excited about your prospects, new insights, and mind-expanding theories today. Exceptionally positive and warm energy is with you for romance, personal expression, and enjoying the company of others today with a Sun-Jupiter aspect also in force. You are feeling freer, lighter, and more forward-looking, and you are especially charismatic as a result.
The day suits you well, dear Virgo, as energies are in force that encourage you to be sharper and more focused. A relationship can be pleasantly surprising or open, or you enjoy more courage to do something different, creative, and unique. Insight into health or work methods can be useful. You’re not content to talk or think about problems and leave them at that, preferring to take some steps to resolve them, with your planetary ruler, Mercury, in aspect to action-oriented Mars today. Conversations tend to be to-the-point and discussions frank. This can be a time for delving right into a tricky topic as if you were jumping into a cold lake, just to get things going. Or, you’re excited about an idea or project and pouring your energies into investigating or researching and developing it. You want results today! As well now, you’re sending a positive message to others about your competence and skills through your can-do attitude. Opportunities to work from home, or to reorganize and improve your home life, may pop up now.
Discussions are frank today, dear Libra, particularly with a lover or partner. This can be a pleasant and productive time for connecting with others and for shared activities. It’s a fabulous day for creative work and social events, too. Quick, confident connections can figure strongly now. You may be a little flirtatious today, or particularly courageous about saying what you feel and pursuing your desires. If you need to, you can talk your way into–or out of–pretty much any situation now. Opportunities to show your more creative or romantic side emerge. Take them! New beginnings or fresh starts are in order with children, romantic partners, creative projects, or hobbies, and communication is the key. Openness and generosity are the keys to success right now and can open up new levels of understanding and generate a good feeling of growth in your relationships.
You’re inclined to seek and gain a sense of fulfillment through your attention to family matters and personal possessions right now, dear Scorpio. You’re deriving more comfort and pleasure in the security that comes with familiar people, things, and settings. The Sun in your home and family sector is jibing with Jupiter in your finances sector, encouraging feelings of abundance and warm pride. It’s a time for getting creative with family, money, home, and business matters. As well today, a Mercury-Mars aspect stimulates your senses and motivates you to learn, solve problems, and make connections. You’re not afraid to take on demanding work or topics. In fact, you welcome challenges today and might fare especially well under pressure or in a competitive situation.
It’s a beautiful day to get things done and reach out to others with bravery and confidence, dear Sagittarius. You’re making quick assessments and predictions, and it feels good to enjoy such decisiveness. You have little patience for beating around the bush today! You are a quick study right now. Refreshing communications can be part of all of this. Your ideas are particularly creative now, and your sense of fun is even stronger than usual. You’re less interested in talking and thinking than you are doing and showing others what you mean. It’s an excellent time for love connections, flirtations, and fun exchanges. Conversations cut to the chase, and a spirit of openness appeals to you, perhaps even opening up doors to you for self-expression. Establishing trust can be exceptionally easy and successful now.
Practical pursuits thrive today, dear Capricorn, and confidence increases. You have the sense that you can make significant improvements that have a real impact on your life, and this is motivating, even exhilarating, as you’re anxious to make a dent. What you can do with knowledge is more important to you today than simply knowing for the sake of knowing as Mercury and Mars connect in a harmonious aspect. You want to build, produce, and accomplish something tangible and measurable, and you’re likely to come across opportunities to do so now. If doing business, this can be a time for learning something that gives you a competitive edge or advantage. Or, insights about your money situation emerge that are truly useful. Your positivity shines now– it’s a little easier than usual to see the bright side of things with current transits.
Two helpful influences are with you today, dear Aquarius, and they involve both the Sun and Mercury in your sign. You can feel energized on a mental level, and you’re likely to feel pleasantly competitive and ready to take on a challenge. If you need to resolve a conflict, you get the chance to do so quickly and easily today, and you bring added pizazz and personality to most everything you do now. It’s a time for freeing yourself from negative thought patterns, and for putting thoughts and ideas in motion. You are ready to grab an opportunity, and perhaps most importantly, seeing one in the first place! You enjoy others’ company more than usual today, and it’s a great time for networking, sharing, connecting, and group activities; or if you’re in an independent frame of mind, for enjoying projects, idea creation, and goal-setting. All of these things have increased chances of success right now–it’s a good time to move things forward.
Today holds much potential for sharp thinking and a strong sense of satisfaction from accomplishing something tangible and measurable, dear Pisces. Enthusiasm fuels you, and your mind is working at top speed. You’re open to some improvisation and experimentation today, and the connections you make can be fun and inspiring. Interactions can be passionate, spicy, and energetic now. While you’re setting your sights high and thinking in big terms, you’re also prepared to tackle immediate concerns and problems. You want to put outstanding errands and issues behind you. After all, the more you handle now, the freer you’ll be later. Communications are to-the-point but helpful and promising. You can be feeling right about the impression you’re making and the work you’re doing. Financial and career matters can be moving forward or getting the okay.
