Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Intense feelings, and perhaps fears as well, can come to light today, dear Aries, and for you, these may revolve around your career or reputation as the Sun and Pluto come together for their annual meeting at the top of your solar chart. There can be concern about the image you’re projecting, but out of it, the determination to take more control. It can be the time of a serious focus on your achievements and ambitions, as well as the motivation for important resolutions regarding changes that help you feel you’re acknowledging your deepest aspirations and goals. If you need to reinvent yourself on a professional or reputation level, this is the time for considering strategies to do so. Do also consider reducing activities that keep you from excelling at your work or from reaching your goals. Letting go of wasteful or outdated endeavors can be challenging to do, but may very well be what you need to succeed.
The Sun and Pluto have their annual meeting in your solar ninth house, dear Taurus, and they’re asking you to transform and grow through your beliefs, ideas, and attitudes. Someone or something may be challenging the way you see things, and it’s up to you to either resist or grow through the experience. You are learning that clinging too tightly to your ideas can limit your growth. Freeing yourself from limiting attitudes is a process that’s unfolding a little at a time for you, and it’s empowering. Even so, you may need to work through tension and fear to get to this place. Fears tend to relate to the road ahead, long-term plans, skills, knowledge, and faith in your future. Watch for people who are power-tripping today, but also for the tendency to try to control others, connecting instead to your determination to live a more powerful, engaging life.
The Sun’s annual meeting with Pluto occurs now, dear Gemini, and it can serve to illuminate some of your deeper desires and fears. Questions of trust may push to the surface, and self-honesty is especially important now. Through events, meetings, and memories, you’re learning a little bit about your attachments or dependencies, and if you’re not in touch with some of your deeper feelings triggered today, there can be considerable tension. This aspect can alternatively work on a different level, producing a wonderful atmosphere for intense study or focus and concentration. You may benefit greatly from doing some in-depth research or digging. It might also stimulate an important epiphany about a relationship or your inner motivations with its alignment in your intimacy sector.
Relationships or feelings about someone can be intense today, dear Cancer, and your interactions may very well show you sides of your own nature that are not entirely flattering as the Sun and Pluto have their annual meeting in your solar seventh house. However, if you’re honest with yourself and brave about facing your fears, you can learn a lot about yourself through the events and emotions of the day. Be sure that you don’t deny your role in complicated interplays. Instead, consider all angles. It can be all too easy to see in others what you are trying to avoid knowing about yourself. For some of you, you’re taking a relationship to a new level or making important discoveries now. Today is powerful for letting go of behaviors, particularly over-attachment, that have been holding you back from achieving your goals, mainly related to relationships and money.
The Sun and Pluto have their yearly meeting now, dear Leo, and this occurs in your work and health sector. This alignment shines a light on some of your deeper ambitions, fears, and anxieties, primarily related to your health, daily routines, work, and service. This can be a great time to resolve a complicated matter or rework something inside out or top to bottom. Mind you, you may quickly become quite worked up over a problem before getting to this place of empowerment. You have a stronger ability to focus (perhaps even obsess!) and to gain tremendous insight into your life today, but it’s important to know when to let go. With some self-honesty, this can be a wonderful time for seeing areas of your life that require adjustments, edits, and pruning so that you can move forward, grow, and reach your goals.
The Sun and Pluto have their yearly meeting in your solar fifth house now, dear Virgo, and light may be shed on your feelings about a person or project. For some, you may have been struggling with whether you sincerely care for — or have entirely gotten over — a situation or person, and now the Sun illuminates your deeper feelings, desires, and fears. Whether it’s recognition for your uniqueness or attention from a love interest, the desire can be hard to deny, and you may feel wanting or you could be dealing with resentment or jealousy with Pluto the subject of the day. Face your feelings, embrace them, and then decide how you can improve your life as a result. Reducing or eliminating unhealthy attachments should be the goal now, although this can also be a fine time for using powerful feelings to drive a creative work or a new purpose or commitment.
With the Sun and Pluto having their annual meeting now, dear Libra, areas of resentment or overattachment may be illuminated. It’s easier than usual to bring up the past, and while fixating may not be the best strategy, focusing on fixing problems can be particularly successful now with this extra insight or self-awareness. You receive a window into some of your deeply buried desires and resentments, and possibly fears, particularly related to your personal life, family, and home matters. You can more clearly see areas of your life that need a serious update or reboot. With Pluto dominating today’s energies, you would do well for yourself by focusing on what needs to be left behind or upgraded and transformed. You might decide to work with this theme by channeling your energies into a project around the home that will help encourage you to be more productive.
The Sun and Pluto have their yearly meeting now, dear Scorpio, and it gives you the chance to see your deeper ambitions and fears. This may be a bit disruptive or uncomfortable but serves you well if you work with it to grow and improve through this turning of the lights on in your life. This powerful duo is currently in your communications sector, making your communications particularly impactful now, or there can be a new development, memory, or concern related to a project or pursuit. The motivation to firm up vulnerable areas or to work on fixes can result. You might get particularly caught up with a specific idea or subject now. Taken too far, you could become fixated on a topic to the point that other areas of your life suffer. If something has to go, whether it’s a frivolous activity that interferes with your productivity or an attitude that keeps you in a negative frame of mind, this is the time for putting it behind you. It can also be an excellent time for coming up with a plan to improve your studies and communications.
The Sun and Pluto have their yearly meeting in your solar second house, dear Sagittarius, and this alignment can heighten your awareness of your deeper ambitions and fears especially about your earning power, feelings of self-worth, money matters, and security. This is an excellent time for creating strategies to spend and save more effectively, primarily related to reducing or getting rid of redundancies in Pluto style. This powerful duo can stir up strong feelings about your boundaries, income, and values, and if you’re fearful or worried about security or financial matters, you can be particularly sensitive about these things today and tomorrow. Resolve to do what you can to improve your financial picture. Hold off on new purchases or endeavors and focus instead on what can be pared down, eliminated, or recycled. If you’ve grown overly attached to certain stagnant situations or excess clutter, then you may work on freeing yourself of these dead weights.
The Sun and Pluto have their annual meeting now, dear Capricorn, and it happens in your sign, stimulating instincts to grow, improve, and change. For best results now, seek to let go of a need to control things that truly cannot be controlled, and instead focus on the things you can master. There is an intensity to the day that can be used to your advantage but do watch for a tendency to brood or fixate on problems. Tap into your motivation to make empowering changes. As long as you resist the temptation to try to maneuver people and situations to work in your favor, you are in an excellent place to get your affairs in order. You may very well discover that the best way to gain an edge is to work on controlling your reactions and attitudes rather than fixating on things outside of yourself. This Sun-Pluto alignment shines a light on personal ambitions and fears, which can be slightly uncomfortable if you’ve been out of touch with them, but also wonderfully revealing. Acknowledge your deeper needs, wants, and desires, but then come up with a plan to achieve those that are healthy and empowering.
The Sun and Pluto have their annual meeting in your privacy sector now, dear Aquarius, reminding you of your more deeply buried feelings, fears, and ambitions. Those things that leave you feeling insecure or guilt-ridden need to go, but first, their source requires identifying. This Sun-Pluto influence helps you see the attitudes or situations in your life that may have been driving self-destructive behavior or that are at the root of feelings of powerlessness. An inherent need for change is with you, as discomfort can motivate you to grow and improve, fueling the determination to rid yourself of problem areas. It’s a beautiful time for self-understanding and awareness that is eye-opening and even life-changing.
Difficulties with friends or complicated emotions about your social life can be illuminated now with the Sun and Pluto having their yearly meeting in your solar eleventh house, dear Pisces. What’s revealed to you now can serve to motivate you to make connections, start fresh, or make repairs. You’re offered a candid glimpse into problem areas, and it’s up to you whether you use this energy to fixate or to fix! With Pluto active, it’s a good idea to watch for (and resist) urges to try to maneuver situations or people to work in your favor. The better way to use the powerful energy of this duo is to work on making changes and improvements to your relationships that serve both you and others well. This influence can work on a different level, stirring up a need to eliminate some of the less meaningful projects or distractions from your life. The Moon spends the day in your sign — another clarifying transit that gives you a special window into your emotions.
