Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You have Jupiter encouraging you to take a more interactive and confident approach to your life until December, dear Aries. However, with Jupiter and Neptune forming a square now, it becomes especially important to balance out your life by making more time for spiritual, imaginative, and reflective activities, or you’ll lose some of the motivation and spark you have for these endeavors. Listen to instinctual needs for time to yourself or to those you care for. You could be dealing with unresolved issues, fears, or guilt now, and these can stand in the way of your efforts toward expanding your knowledge or experiences. Or, you may need to battle some disorganization or fuzziness with facts now. Get over this hurdle, and you’ll be ready to jump on opportunities to expand your horizons as they arise. Consider ways to heal self-destructive tendencies. Also, if it’s a lack of a game plan that’s holding you back, get to work on clarifying your goals.
With Jupiter square Neptune now, dear Taurus, you would be wise to avoid excesses and watch for the accumulation of shared debt. Sudden increases or overexpansion can cause you some personal stress, as you may feel a little overwhelmed at times, perhaps due to some blurred boundaries in a relationship. It’s vital to avoid shooting for an unrealizable goal now if it prevents you from enjoying what you already have. Even so, this is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological hangups. Watch for glossing over important, practical details, and don’t let a lack of direction, game plan, or structure leave you behind. With these things in check, Jupiter’s current transit of your solar eighth house until December can bring more joyful inner or intimate life and a deeper connection to someone special.
Jupiter in your partnership sector this year is a potentially powerful influence for boosting a relationship, dear Gemini. Jupiter’s square to Neptune now can point to temporary problems, however, possibly due to a lack of understanding between you and another concerning your goals or lack of direction. Your own uncertainties related to major life-plan goals, or a lack of solid game plan or structure, can subtly undermine your efforts to improve and enjoy your relationships. Or, putting so much of your energies into relationships can be interfering with responsibilities. Ambiguity about your future can certainly deflate you, but even if you don’t know where you’re headed right now, it’s important to apply yourself to practical affairs so that you don’t waste opportunities that are in front of you or time that you can’t get back.
With Jupiter in your work and health sector until December, dear Cancer, this can be a year of increased enjoyment of your work, daily routines, and self-care programs. Even so, a Jupiter-Neptune hurdle now can introduce some temporary slowdowns or drawbacks. There can be conflicts between pulls toward work and pulls toward recreational or educational activities, or you may suffer the consequences of taking on so much that you have trouble taking time for yourself. It can be hard to fit in everything that you want to accomplish now! A lack of a long-term plan can make current pursuits feel overwhelming. Perhaps you’ve already put too much on your plate, or you’re experiencing some feelings of disillusionment with, or interruptions of, current studies or belief systems. These are temporary and remind you to simplify things. Find ways to focus and prioritize so that you can take advantage of opportunities that arise when they’re in front of you rather than pinning all your hopes on something in the distant future.
With Jupiter expanding your creative and romantic life until December, dear Leo, you’re enjoying new or improved ways of expressing yourself. However, with Jupiter square Neptune right now, uncertainties with money, support, or your intimate life can seem to interfere with your pursuit of pleasure, romance, or leisure. It’s important to avoid neglecting or turning a blind eye to problem areas with any of these matters, as guilt or ambiguity can drag you down and lead to wasted opportunities. If you discover that you don’t have all the resources or support you anticipated, aim to discipline yourself or tone things down just a little. Be a bit more careful than usual if you are lending or borrowing since your judgment may be compromised by wishful thinking, or you may not be privy to all the details of a matter just yet. Try not to allow uncertainty about someone’s feelings or your own needs to leave you feeling in limbo.
With Jupiter in your solar fourth house until December, dear Virgo, there can be increased enjoyment of and attention to your home life and family, but this new drive in your life can meet a temporary challenge now. If you can let things flow instead of pushing for direction or clarity, you’ll be able to get over this hurdle. Even so, it’s crucial not to escape responsibility or jump ship. Aim for balance. Avoiding or evading responsibilities may be a problem now, or you may be trying to please too many people, and overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs and those of others. Insecurity or ambiguity about a key relationship can deflate you, but even if you don’t know where things are heading for now, it’s important to apply yourself to what’s in front of you so that you won’t be behind when you do discover your direction. Try not to put so much into a currently unclear matter that you forget to enjoy the things that are going well for you!
With Jupiter expanding your interests and bringing more opportunities to learn, share, and connect with others this year, dear Libra, this can be a busy time for you. You’re enjoying quite a bit of enthusiasm for learning, writing, and connecting. Even so, with Jupiter square Neptune now, you could be feeling a little overwhelmed if you’ve taken on too much. There can be a real tendency to want to “do it all,” forgetting your limits of time and energy. You may be doing a lot of little jobs, and your attention may be spread over many tasks. Be exceptionally clear in your communications and watch for misrepresentation now. Try to simplify things and get back some semblance of order in your life. Find ways to focus and prioritize so that you can take advantage of opportunities that arise. Ambiguity in your daily affairs, with work, or with physical health matters can certainly interrupt your pursuits, so aim to seek some balance since overwhelmed feelings can lead to waste or procrastination.
There is a big push in your life towards material goals these days with Jupiter in your solar second house until December, dear Scorpio, and there can be frequent bouts of enthusiasm for a particular project or business. With Jupiter square Neptune now, however, there can be a feeling of being overwhelmed that needs addressing. Be on the alert for overindulgence or a tendency to accumulate too much, which can leave you feeling cluttered or disorganized. While this is an opportunity period for you with money and resources overall, you may need a bit of self-discipline now. Watch for glossing over or ignoring certain expenses or debts. Issues related to excess or uncertainty with a romance, personal project or goal, your leisure time, or children may be wild cards now that distract you. For some of you, a disappointment or insecurity on romantic or creative levels may be affecting your projects, work, or earnings. Watch for an over-emphasis on activities that leave you feeling guilty about not dealing with your responsibilities effectively, and for reaching towards unrealistic goals when real opportunities are right under your nose!
With Jupiter in your sign most of this year, dear Sagittarius, you’ll be discovering all sorts of new facets to your personality, and confidence is building. Even so, a Jupiter-Neptune square may serve as a small hurdle, mainly in the form of some soul-searching as to what it is you are shooting for. Your desires may seem to clash with home and family matters. Ambiguities about living conditions or up-in-the-air issues can leave you feeling uncertain at times. For some of you, this aspect can take the form of a small disappointment or confusing situations surrounding domestic life, insecurities within, or in your connections with family or loved ones. There can be a sense that you’re without an anchor or game plan. While Jupiter is in your sign and urging you to try new things and to go forward with confidence, there could be some issues with organization, self-discipline, or motivation. You may be confused with so many options and possibilities in front of you. This is something that you can and will overcome, and you’ll be better off for it! A game plan that takes into consideration your priorities makes sense now. Once past this feeling of being overwhelmed, and with a greater understanding of your needs and wants, you’ll be raring to go.
There is a lot to enjoy in your private life and to discover with Jupiter transiting your sector of hidden self, privacy, rest, and spirituality most of 2019, dear Capricorn. You could find yourself very frequently enjoying extra time to yourself or time to refresh and regroup emotionally. A Jupiter-Neptune square reminds you to avoid overdoing these things, however. Do watch for a tendency to say or reveal too much or to overlook details in your personal life that can lead to problems elsewhere. Be vigilant with legal and financial matters. Seek out a fair balance between doing and resting. Lack of structure and discipline can seem to hold you back from getting the downtime you need. While you tend to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. Escapism should be watched for, as this will only serve to exacerbate problems. Neglect may be your biggest enemy this week. It’s not a given, just a potential, so remind yourself to watch for areas where you’re procrastinating or responding to distractions simply because you don’t have a game plan or direction. The more organized you feel, the clearer your conscience and the more confidence you’ll have to connect with others, learn new skills, and share your ideas.
Jupiter in your social sector most of the year is a pleasant influence for friendships and your sense of belonging, dear Aquarius. A Jupiter-Neptune square now can point to possible hurdles or areas of waste along these lines, however. Over-emphasis on activities that take you away from your responsibilities can impact your life in negative ways. Funding your projects may be in question, you may be struggling with defining your goals and plans, or there may be misjudgments related to your social life. Neptune’s challenging influence can point to concerns, guilt, excess, or confusion that need addressing before moving forward more confidently, and may involve your income or feelings of self-worth. It’s important to remind yourself to avoid excesses that can negatively impact your enjoyment or social life. Use caution when it comes to lending and borrowing, even as you may be feeling quite generous or concerned about helping out others, but don’t let insecurities hold you back from enjoying your life and your relationships. Consider ways to improve your feelings of confidence about your talents and resources. One possibility is getting more organized in these areas since part of your insecurity could be about not knowing the facts if you’ve been avoiding them.
Jupiter has been enlivening your career and reputation sector for the last two months, dear Pisces, and will continue to bring prosperity to these areas of your life until December. This transit is strong for confidence about your ability to lead, direct your life, and advance your professional interests. However, a Jupiter-Neptune square happening now can introduce some temporary challenges. Disorganization or personal insecurities can leave you feeling less than capable or may distract from your attention to your worldly concerns. If this aspect stirs up an identity crisis of sorts, as both planets are your rulers and Neptune happens to be in your sign, you may need to take a closer look at problems with your image and concept of independence. Defining your priorities and pushing yourself to rise above your vulnerabilities may help. Remind yourself of your worth and get yourself more organized, as insecurities now may be due to some level of self-neglect or lack of awareness of all that you have to offer. Aim to avoid avoidance! Try not to stay in a state of limbo which is a real waste of time and opportunity.
