Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesJupiter encourages you to reach a little further in your career or with goal-setting, dear Aries. You want to grow, improve, and expand. Still, the Sun this month wants you to shine in your personal life and with family or the home. As much as you’d like to “go hard” in both areas, you realize that you won’t do either well if you exhaust yourself. Similarly, if you’ve expected too much from a project or venture, it is time to make some adjustments. If you’ve been overshooting or expecting too much from yourself, you’re now ready to restore some balance. The Sun’s opposition to Jupiter has a way of establishing a turning point. Putting pressure on yourself to reach great heights in a short amount of time will defeat the purpose, which is happiness. The Moon continues to transit your sign and then heads into your resources sector in the second half of the day. Your comfort needs rise.
TaurusThe Sun and Jupiter head towards their yearly opposition, dear Taurus. Your attention turns to areas of your life where you’ve been doing too much. Excesses, particularly related to mental pursuits and projects, can be especially evident or even burdening. You want to shine, which may have led you to take on or promise too much. Overextension is possible, but it may not be straightforward to tone things down because your desire to excel is so strong. Consider that restoring balance by streamlining will benefit you all around. You may need to release some of the pressure to do more than is possible. Juggling too many things can lead to a feeling of burnout. This is not about ending things, and more about slowing down enough to get things right. The Moon heads into your sign in the second half of today, awakening you to desires and feelings that you’ve kept at bay.
GeminiThere can be a strong urge to prove yourself, go it alone, make your mark, and succeed on your own with the Sun currently transiting your solar second house, dear Gemini. Still, with Jupiter in your intimacy sector this year, merging your resources or talents with others can be very rewarding. With the Sun and Jupiter heading into opposition, the desire to merge with someone or their involvement or support may seem to clash with recent urges to make your mark or affects your sense of self-worth. You want to excel on your own merits, but you also recognize the need for others or outside resources and talents. It’s time to test the waters and acknowledge the need to make compromises and avoid excess. Reaching a compromise is important now. Instead, it may be about borrowing or spending, and it’s time to take steps to wind down, relax, and reflect. Echoing this is the Moon heading into your privacy sector in the second half of the day.
CancerThe Sun heads into its yearly opposition with Jupiter, dear Cancer. This year, the Sun is in your sign, making it a bit more personal. There can be a battle of egos happening with a partner, or you could be feeling someone’s demands on you, finding them excessive. You might be trying to please someone and, at the same time striving for independence, and something has to give. Whether to pursue your interests and stand out independently or to partner up can be an issue. In fact, you’re likely to want to do both! Getting to a state of balance can be challenging but rewarding as you stand to learn a lot about yourself and a relationship. If you’re facing opposition to your plans, you may very well learn from the experience. The Moon moves into your social sector in the second half of today, and the urge to detach just enough to enjoy yourself more fully is strong.
LeoThe Sun and Jupiter head toward their yearly opposition today, dear Leo. This year, this transit reminds you of the need to balance your attention to work and rest. You may feel that you want to do it all, but this valiant desire simply isn’t feasible, and the signal to tone things down comes around now. With Jupiter in your solar sixth house this year, you want to shine in your work, routines, and health pursuits. You also have a strong pull towards rest and dealing with private matters or emotional needs this month with the Sun in your solar twelfth house. You want to grow your work and improve your health as well as get the rest and time for reflection that you need, but there’s only so much time in a day. Spreading yourself thin will not serve you well in the long run. Look for ways to make adjustments that lead to a healthier, more balanced life. Adjusting your expectations will do you a world of good at this time.
VirgoThe Sun and Jupiter head toward their yearly opposition, dear Virgo. This year, this transit affects your social axis. You might want to watch for a tendency to promise too much or go too far out today. Circumstances lead you to recognize the ways your life may have become unbalanced due to excesses, particularly in the social or pleasure-seeking arenas. Benefits are coming to you in these areas of life, but if you are going overboard, there’s the chance you’ll pass up opportunities or overextend yourself. Keep your larger goals in mind as you go about your more pleasurable pursuits. If this transit instead presents a conflict between attention to a friend or group activities and a romantic relationship, individual pursuit, or children, or if you are wondering whether to go something alone or with others, it’s best to consider ways to reach a compromise. The Moon heads into your spirit sector in the second half of today, awakening your desire to learn new things.
LibraJupiter is now about midway through its transit of your solar fourth house, dear Libra, and the Sun heads into opposition to this planet of plenty. While this Jupiter transit benefits your personal life and will continue to do so until December, it can sometimes lead to excess. For example, if you’ve spent too much time absorbed in your personal life, you may now see the need to tone things down so that you can reach out more often. You also want to shine in your professional life or move out of your comfort zone and take a few risks this month with the Sun’s transit of your solar tenth house. It’s not always easy to “go hard” in both areas without something suffering. Aim to cut back on excess or to adjust plans if you’ve been overshooting. You’ll enjoy yourself more fully if you manage to moderate and balance your life.
ScorpioWith Jupiter transiting your communications sector this year, dear Scorpio, you have a bigger than usual appetite for taking on or developing projects and interests. There can be a lot on your plate right now, which can lead to a feeling that something will break. The Sun heads into opposition with Jupiter, and a turning point can emerge. Aim to draw some limits, both with others and with yourself. If long-term goals or plans are not moving or growing as well as you had hoped they would, then it’s time to adjust your expectations to better reflect the time and energy you have available to put into them. If you’ve been overdoing information consumption, you’ll recognize the need to pull back now. While it can be tough to manage everything you want to do, your enjoyment levels will suffer if you overextend yourself. Coming to a balance can be most welcome now, and the Moon’s move into your opposite sector in the second half of the day also pushes this agenda!
SagittariusThere’s some tendency to go to excess today, dear Sagittarius, but there’s also a need to put things in order as the day advances. The Sun heads into opposition with Jupiter, your ruler, and it’s important to seek balance in areas of your life where you’ve been going too far or too hard. It can be a little too easy to overdo spending, eating, and even loving right now. You may be wrestling with demands on you from others and expectations of yourself. In your relationships, power dynamics or matters of ownership can figure strongly. If you’ve been going over the top either indulging your interests or giving to others, this is a time when you’re ready to restore balance. You may decide that focusing on your personal goals and values will do much more for your happiness than an excessive focus on outward signs of success or progress. Rein things in as much as possible, as simplifying now seems to be the best solution to problems. If your enthusiasm is dipping, know that it’s likely temporary, and adjustments may be needed to round out your experiences.
CapricornJupiter continues to transit your sign, opening your heart and encouraging you until December, dear Capricorn. The Sun opposes Jupiter today, which can bring you to a turning point. Recent excesses can become especially apparent. There may be some resistance from others that leads you to recognize the need to make a change. You may struggle with some ups and downs with enthusiasm and motivation. However, through this, you may discover new ways of expressing yourself, leading you to make vital adjustments to plans. You’re feeling independent, but it’s best to seek a fuller picture through the eyes of another since a partner may be reflecting important things about yourself. If you’ve been overdoing striving for independence or freedom, then this is a time for reining things in a little. Something has to be toned down, and today, you’re likely to recognize what that is. You may be confronting your excesses or reaching an important turning point in your journey. The Moon moves into the sector of heartfelt pursuits today, raising your spirits.
AquariusWith the Sun’s transit of your work and health sector this month, dear Aquarius, you may be paying more attention to and taking some pride in your chores, routines, work, or health and wellness. On the other hand, Jupiter in your privacy sector encourages you to break out of the routine and enjoy more time to yourself. A Sun-Jupiter opposition points to a turning point moment–if you’ve been overdoing things, it’s time to turn things around. For example, if you’ve been doing so much for others that you don’t have much energy or time for yourself, it’s time to restore balance. You can benefit from drawing limits and establishing boundaries, both with others and yourself. You’ll see the value in making compromises and seeking out a better work-life balance. The Moon heads into your solar fourth house in the second half of the day, and you’re likely to need some downtime. Centering yourself feels good now.
PiscesWith the Sun about to oppose Jupiter, dear Pisces, you may come to a turning point with a romantic relationship, friendship, or creative project. There may be a project or connection that began in December that now comes full bloom. Instead, you may face a choice between shining on your own or sharing the work and credit. If a conflict ensues between attention to group or friend activities and individual or romantic relationships, the answer may be to seek moderation. As much as you’d like to please everyone, including yourself, there can be the need to tone things down now. After all, you can’t spread yourself out too thin without something taking a hit. Your desire to succeed, grow, and develop both on your own and as part of a group is powerful now, but you can only do so much. Something has to give, and you may very well see what that is today. The Moon heads into your communications sector in the second half of the day, and your curiosity strengthens.
