Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesAn interesting transition occurs today, dear Aries. From December 2017 to March 2020, Saturn transited your sector of career, reputation, and responsibility. Today, Saturn returns to this area of your solar chart for a final several-month stretch. New responsibilities may have emerged during this transit, but you may have reaped the rewards of past long-term efforts. It’s been a time when others have been more aware of your accomplishments, performance, and possibly of your less proud moments as well. In the months ahead (until December 17th), you may be revisiting a work project or tying up loose ends to firm up your professional life or the major plans and structures of your life. It’s a good time for processing the lessons and attitude changes that have occurred, and for coming to a stronger feeling of responsibility and accomplishment. Today, the Moon continues to move through your intimacy sector for much of the day, and you feel the need to connect more deeply to your innermost feelings, to a person, or a project. It’s a time of the lunar cycle for pouring concentrated energy into something relevant or meaningful to you. Later today, the Moon heads into your spirit sector, and you begin to crave more freedom and space.
TaurusSaturn begins its last leg of its journey through your solar ninth house today, dear Taurus, this after spending several months in your career sector. This return gives you the chance to brush up on skills, boost your knowledge, and complete projects–things that will help support your work in the future. It’s also a good time to process recent experiences and come to a clearer understanding of your place in the world. It helps to further prepare you for career assessment, changes, or redefinitions. Take every opportunity you can to learn new, useful things. It may be best to follow a schedule that helps you to beat the procrastination demon. Today, you’re focusing on your social life or relationships, or you’re seeking some feedback. Nevertheless, you know the value of getting practical things done today. You have a good sense of what to expect from yourself and others right now, which helps keep things reasonable and fair. Later today, the Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, and you’re looking to focus or specialize.
GeminiAn interesting shift occurs today, dear Gemini. Saturn heads back into your solar eighth house until December 17th. With this retreat, you’re likely to revisit some unfinished business, possibly related to debts and money owed, your attitude towards intimacy, and relationships in the months ahead. It’s a time for crystallizing some of the lessons you’ve learned while Saturn transited this area of your chart from December 2017 to March 2020. The months ahead are important for getting a stronger sense of your support systems and needs. Today, you can be especially interested in doing your best–your performance matters more to you than usual. Efforts to organize and minimize debt get powerful support now. Still, conversations can seem to leave things up in the air as retrograde Mercury clashes with Chiron. If someone touches a button, aim to explore why. As well, it may be best to take others’ sensitivity into account before communicating.
CancerSaturn heads back into your partnership sector today for several months, dear Cancer. This move means it’s time to take care of unfinished business in a relationship or to crystallize the lessons that came with Saturn’s transit here from December 2017 to March 2020. It’s a good period for getting closure and dealing with relationship matters that were left dangling. Saturn is about commitment, structure, reality, and maturation, and with this transit, these things are directed toward your partnerships or close bonds. Today, you might especially enjoy activities that allow you to create, compete, or play. Constructive conversations or activities with someone special can figure strongly. Someone or a relationship might motivate you to better yourself or do your best. You may gain some helpful insight into a friend’s situation now. The Moon heads into your work and health sector later today, and for a couple of days, you’re paying more attention to getting your daily affairs in order.
LeoSaturn heads back into your solar sixth house for several months, dear Leo, before moving out permanently (or at least not until 2050). Until December 17th, you’re in good shape to take care of unfinished business related to work, daily routines, and health. With Saturn here, it’s about cleaning up, simplifying, organizing, and getting things in order. You’re no stranger to this energy since it was with you from December 2017 to March 2020, and now it’s on the last leg of its journey in this area of your solar chart. The months ahead can be important for you to finish up a long-term project or to organize your daily affairs. Today, you can feel a strong desire to settle down or settle in for much of the day as the Moon continues its transit of your home and family sector. You’re also in a wonderful position to gain an advantage in your work. Later today, the Moon heads into your sector of joy, and you’re inclined to seek some creative outlets.
VirgoAn interesting shift occurs today, dear Virgo. Saturn dips back into your solar fifth house for several months (until December 17th), which can mean returning to an unfinished project, dealing with a matter of the heart, or finalizing an important project. It can be a good time to take care of loose ends. You might consider ways to improve and structure your time so that you better represent your needs for both play and work. Romantic matters or a better understanding of your love needs can be in stronger focus. There can be decisions to make, but they’re vital to your progress. Today, you’re feeling out your needs for pursuing your mental interests. With the Moon’s interaction with Saturn, you speak with authority and may arrive at some meaningful conclusions. It’s a fine time to learn something constructive, but keep in mind that a Mercury-Chiron square can lead to some misunderstandings or sensitivity to what’s communicated. Fortunately, you have both practicality and intuition working for you, opening you up to learn from missteps.
LibraSaturn dips back into your home and family sector today, dear Libra, where it will transit until December 17th. You’ve experienced this transit from December 2017 to March 2020, and in the months ahead, it’s finishing up. It’s a time to take care of unfinished business, particularly related to home and family matters or psychological issues. There can be more inner “re-working” and restructuring of home and family life going on in the upcoming months. It’s time to face issues surrounding your attachments to the past and to do a little more “spring cleaning” within the home or inside yourself. The goal is to get yourself to a state of feeling in charge of your home, family, and support system. Today, you can feel prompts to get a good handle on your money, valuables, or resources. You’re especially aware of those things that ground you, make you feel secure, and keep you focused on the moment.
ScorpioWith Saturn moving back into your solar third house for a several-month return visit, dear Scorpio, it’s time to finish up an important project or go back to studies/work you need to complete. You could be quite preoccupied with serious work or a rather heavy schedule, and you may be a little less communicative with friends and family in the process. A project may be wrapping up now. Ideally, by the end of this period, you will have gained a greater depth of understanding, having focused on information and communication that you can really use to feel more effective in the world. The months ahead are strong for cleaning up your daily schedule or completing a project that will benefit you for years. Today, the Moon continues to transit your sign for much of the day, and you’re projecting warm but determined energy. You’re in a naturally positive frame of mind. The Moon later moves into your resources sector, prompting you to get a nice handle on your money, valuables, or resources.
SagittariusSaturn is now on the final leg of its journey through your sector of values and finances, dear Sagittarius. This trek first began in late 2017, Saturn moved on in March this year, and is now returning for a final run until December. It’s been a time for becoming stronger in your position with money and honing or refining your talents and skills. You continue to work on your effectiveness in the world, and learning exactly what has been holding you back from achieving the results you want. In the months ahead, your expectations are likely to be more “real” than they have ever been. You’re likely to feel more confident about your ability to provide for yourself, particularly after Saturn turns direct in September. You may be tying up loose ends and completing projects, or returning to money matters that have been left unfinished. Today, you continue to need extra time to and for yourself. You can find more support and warmth by listening to your own heart and deeper needs. Later today, the Moon enters your sign, and you can feel a surge of emotional energy.
CapricornFrom now and until mid-December, Saturn returns to finish its transit of your sign, dear Capricorn. During this transit that first occurred from December 2017 to March 2020, very little has been handed to you — most of the accomplishments you’ve made have been well-earned. It’s a time for processing the lessons you’ve learned before going forward with a lighter load and less personal pressure. You might revisit some problems, but it’s a strong time for strengthening the structures and routines in your life. Today, the Moon continues its transit of your social sector for much of the day. Your idea of relaxation may be more intense than it is for most others, but becoming engrossed in a book, idea, or project may be just the thing that centers you now. There is great energy with you for generating ideas and plans that inspire you. Judgment is excellent as the day advances. Still, with the Moon’s move into your privacy sector, you may feel as if the cosmos want you to keep a low profile. Listen to any instincts you may have to take it easy, as this is a natural period in the lunar cycle for you to slow down and catch your breath.
AquariusSince March, you’ve hosted Saturn in your sign, dear Aquarius, and this transit asks you to firm up structures and routines in your life. Now and until mid-December, Saturn temporarily leaves your sign and dips back into the sign behind yours. You’re getting the chance to tie up loose ends from your past that may have been tripping you up before Saturn re-enters your sign. It’s a time for discerning between fact and fancy, ending projects that have outworn their use or completing unfinished ones, and dealing with past grievances, guilt, and other uncomfortable matters. You have some more work to do, identifying the weak areas of your life or those attitudes and circumstances that undermine your progress and don’t allow you to move on with confidence. Today, you have good executive ability and intuition to back things up. You might enjoy mapping out a long-term plan. You’re in a take-charge frame of mind. Being responsible or in the position of responsibility tends to fulfill you. You want to be useful and productive, but you also need to have a bit of fun with the Moon’s move into your social sector later today.
PiscesSaturn returns to your sector of friendships, networking, business income, and goal-setting for several months, dear Pisces. This transit is not new to you. In fact, it was active from December 2017 to March 2020, and it may have helped you to face some realities, and brought tests and challenges to these areas of life at times. More paring down is necessary in the months ahead (until December 17th). Still, it’s also a time to process and crystallize some of the lessons you’ve learned about the groups you align with, friends, and happiness goals. It’s your chance to reassess a friendship or your involvement with a group or team. It’s also a time for firming up long-term plans and business ventures and making sure you’re taking good care of business income. Today, the Moon continues in your spirit sector for much of the day, encouraging you to enjoy an optimistic perspective. A brief change of pace can be welcome. Today is also strong for strategizing and focusing on solid ideas and plans. You have the chance to take care of outstanding problems and loose emotional ends.
