Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
While you’re encouraged to follow the rules and simplify in your career or with your larger goals this year, dear Aries, another influence coming into play now finds you needing at least little freedoms to explore and discover beyond your duties and responsibilities. Pursuits and even relationships that are a bit too routine, clingy, or confining can frustrate now, and it’s a good idea to find constructive ways to freshen things up. Make space for mental explorations in your life, or you’ll feel things are just too stuffy to bear! The Moon heads into your privacy sector later today, also pointing to the need for a change of routine.
You may be comparing a current situation to a past one, and it’s coming out lacking now, dear Taurus, as Jupiter and Uranus form a dynamic aspect. This influence will stick around for most of 2019, and it reminds you of the need for a change of pace, particularly on an emotional level but also with how you approach your intimate life. It can be a time for breaking out of a relating rut or a specific routine that’s not getting you the results you crave. Taking smalls steps toward making constructive changes rather than making sudden or dramatic moves is your best bet. Not recognizing this need can lead to irritating disruptions or even immature behavior. Self-awareness helps you to act rather than react. The Moon moves into harmony with your sign today, and you seek out easy, happy activities and people.
Jupiter’s transit of your partnership sector helps you relate with a significant “other” in your life in more satisfying and rewarding ways, dear Gemini, and it’s a good time (most of 2019) for seeing a person as a whole rather than focusing on the irritating parts! As Jupiter connects to Uranus through a minor but disruptive aspect now, however, there is some tendency to rebel if things become too close for comfort. Be sure to recognize this need for space, both for yourself and for someone important to you, since feelings of being confined or hemmed in can lead to unnecessary conflicts if left unattended. A friendship and partnership may clash for some of you, or there can be tensions if you’re pouring too much energy into one relationship over another. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart later today, and you’re reminded of your ambitions and accomplishments.
Jupiter in your solar sixth house for most of 2019 is excellent for work and health pursuits, dear Cancer. You’ll find more pleasure and reward in your daily routines. Jupiter’s clash with Uranus, however, reminds you that if you take on too much, you’re likely to feel quite hemmed in or restless. Even too much of a good thing can wear you down, particularly since you’re craving freedoms to go your own way. You may also feel somewhat restless with the status quo regarding your career now. If you feel that you’re often left doing the grunt work, this issue can be magnified now. Frustrations can lead to acting out of character. Seek clear reasons for your unrest and consider ways to make constructive changes instead of merely reacting randomly to problems. Ideally, you’ll get some extra space for creativity and ad lib changes.
Jupiter’s transit of your solar fifth house lasts most of 2019, dear Leo, and encourages you to express yourself more playfully and spontaneously. Its dynamic aspect with Uranus begins now and can find you craving novelty, independence, and creative room, making it necessary not to weigh yourself down with pursuits in your enthusiasm. You’ll want to break free from time to time, and doing too much or overdoing the leisure side of your life can make it difficult to pursue other goals. Be sure to give yourself some breathing room, and if this influence is about a love connection, you’ll want to vary things a little to keep things fresh. Acting to make changes rather than reacting to changes is the goal when Uranus is prominent and challenging. Seek satisfying ways to spice up your life and avoid overdoing things. The Moon moves into your intimacy sector later today, and you’ll be looking for in-depth pursuits or your emotional focus intensifies.
Jupiter’s transit of your home and family sector lasts most of the year, dear Virgo, and can be especially fortunate for home life. There can be a nice focus on your personal life or family. Your enthusiasm is strong, but do watch that you don’t overload yourself with projects along these lines. Jupiter forms a minor challenging aspect with Uranus today, and this influence will stick around until October. With it, you may be craving some emotional excitement, and if you leave this unattended, disruptions and instigations may result. Recognizing your need for certain freedoms and connecting with inner desires for change will help you make constructive changes. If you’ve been unhappy with specific patterns or if you’ve been confronting the same old issues in close relationships, this can be a time for changing your approach. Dare to do things just a little differently, and avoid taking on so much that you leave little room for other pursuits or you feel hemmed in.
Jupiter’s transit of your solar third house will last until December, dear Libra, and is excellent for enjoying your daily affairs, personal interests, contacts, and studies. You’re enthusiastic, but you should watch for taking on far too much to the point that you feel trapped, overloaded, and decidedly un-free! Jupiter’s connection to Uranus today reminds you of this possibility. It’s not a time for blind obedience or following every rule to the letter, and while there can be some tensions stimulated, you can find ways to work with the energy instead of allowing it to work you up. Be flexible if there are small changes in your schedule or disruptions in your routine since they may very well lead to fun and informative detours. Look for ways to do things just a little differently so that thinking and connecting stays fresh.
As Jupiter connects with Uranus today, dear Scorpio, the desire for something different can take hold, but you may not know precisely why you’re feeling restless. The best way to handle this is to recognize a need for change rather than pushing it to the side and allowing arbitrary restlessness power your decisions. Routine can be hard to take now, particularly if you’ve been taking on too much in recent weeks, and it makes sense to seek out areas that could do with some refreshment. In other words, aim to make changes rather than simply react to things happening to you. Or, you might decide to welcome disruptions to your schedule as chances to discover new approaches. Even though you have a stronger drive to enjoy comfortable and familiar activities these days, some variation can work in your favor. Pay particular attention in the coming two months to different methods to approach health, wellness, work, and business.
Jupiter continues to transit your sign, dear Sagittarius, boosting your confidence until December. It forms a minor challenging aspect to Uranus today, and this aspect will stick around until October in some shape or form, reminding you that too much of even a good thing can weigh you down. Uranus wants you to keep some options open! Your rebellious or impulsive side can emerge today when you least expect it, and it’s better to recognize your need for change rather than allow it to attract disruptive situations to you. Seek out ways to refresh and enliven your life in areas that have become a little too dull or lifeless, and be sure that you’re not overcommitting. The key will be to keep things light and spontaneous. You may want to change plans due to rather sudden revelations. The Moon’s move to the bottom of your solar chart today can bring on a real craving for familiarity and comfort, however, although it’s a brief, two-day transit.
Jupiter’s transit of your privacy sector until December is a good one for finding peace with the past and joy in quiet activities or solitude, dear Capricorn. Jupiter clashes with Uranus in a minor aspect today, and this influence can point to some disruptions and cravings for change or freedom. This aspect is a longer-term one that will stick with us until October in some shape or form. Disruptions in the usual routine may not always be welcome, but they may very well lead to exciting detours, bringing on just the right kind of refreshment you’re craving. Small changes made now can lead to significant improvements, particularly related to home and family, but also with intangibles, such as through adjustments in thinking and attitude that have a positive impact on your life. Learning new things about your inner needs can lead to exciting new beginnings now.
Jupiter’s continued transit of your social sector is a helpful influence, dear Aquarius, and it will bless your life until December. However, Jupiter’s clash with Uranus today reminds you to keep some options open. Avoid overscheduling, even if you’re feeling very enthusiastic about specific activities and projects, so that you leave some room for spontaneity and personal space as well. This aspect can stimulate a need for change and freedom, but the specifics may not be easy to pinpoint, and resistance might lead to unnecessary frustrations or tensions. Recognizing your need for refreshment is paramount now since it allows you the opportunity to take charge and make the changes you want. The Moon leaves your sign today, heading into your resources sector and helping to settle your emotions.
Jupiter’s transit of your career and reputation sector this year is an excellent one for nurturing your confidence to reach for your goals, dear Pisces. Today, it connects with Uranus in a minor challenging aspect, and this influence will stick around to some degree until October. With it, it’s essential to keep your plans flexible and to leave some options open. You need the room to explore, discover, create, and come to your own conclusions or else you’ll feel hemmed in. This aspect reminds you not to overload your plate. Your need for change is best recognized and channeled into an appropriate outlet, or there can be some minor misunderstandings. The Moon moves into your sign today, reinforcing your need for independence and spontaneity.
