Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Sun’s opposition to Saturn occurs each year and can correspond with a reality check, dear Aries. This can relate to work-home balance for you this time around. There can be quite a pull to follow the rules and to achieve your goals and ambitions, but you are also craving family and home time. Remind yourself that you gain strength as you humble yourself to certain realities. Taking a second look at personal plans can be useful now. With the Sun’s alignment to the North Node in your home and family sector, the key to success at this point in your journey may be to honor, build, and nurture your inner foundation or home base. This way, you’ll be better equipped to handle your responsibilities or to succeed in your public and professional lives. Look for ways to boost your faith in your emotional life.
The Sun forms its yearly opposition to Saturn today, dear Taurus, pointing to the possible need to deal with a roadblock or reality. If you’ve let something go or neglected a responsibility or errand, it can now come back to your attention, perhaps with some minor consequences attached. This may also be a time for recognizing the limits of time or energy for a project that you began approximately half a year ago. Take this opportunity to make more mature and informed decisions. While criticism may enter the picture, you may be able to learn from it. Aim to downsize or pare down rather than take on more. Even with this influence and Mercury’s retrograde, today’s Sun-Node alignment can serve as a gentle push forward, reminding you to boost your skills and improve your communications, as this seems the path to fulfillment at this time.
A Sun-Saturn opposition occurs today, dear Gemini, and there may be the need to face a financial or relationship reality since this aspect is currently happening along your solar second-eighth house axis. Someone may be disapproving or less than sympathetic, or you may need to draw some boundaries. It’s probably best to meet others halfway and let them decide whether they’ll do the same. Delays occurring now may very well lead to better conditions later, so be willing to exercise patience. Adjustments made now may send you in a new direction that better serves you in the long term. Otherwise, you’re in an excellent position to connect with people who can lead you to a boost in your finances, or you could discover a valuable resource you hadn’t noticed before. You are learning about what you truly value and how much you can depend on yourself. It’s a good time to review how you’re managing your resources and talents.
The Sun in your sign opposes Saturn today, dear Cancer, and you may need to face up to reality, a restriction, or a responsibility. A relationship challenge could emerge or reach a head, and you may not have others’ full cooperation, but you have the tools to sort things out even without a definite answer from someone. Keep in mind that while critics can be annoying, they may have something to show us. This can be a time for shoring up or taking steps to make you less vulnerable if you’ve been overlooking or neglecting a matter. If circumstances or a particular person seem to be slowing you down today, consider that you may need to take a step back and make corrections. Today’s Sun-Node alignment occurs in your sign and pulls up a sense of pride in yourself and your general direction or sense of independence. It’s a time for learning to overcome fears of trusting your instincts or going your own way. Today, you may connect with people, information, or sudden waves of realization that point you in the direction of growth and improvement along these lines. What you need to put behind you becomes apparent, as it’s holding you back from being free and independent.
A Sun-Saturn opposition occurs today, dear Leo, and this yearly event is currently happening along the work-rest axis of your solar chart. This influence can serve as a reminder of responsibilities that you may have avoided or neglected or of work that requires edits or adjustments. Obligations that you’ve forgotten about or avoided may need your attention now, perhaps with some consequences if you’ve let something slide. The Sun in your privacy sector has been encouraging your need for relaxation, and Saturn serves as a reminder of the tasks that need handling most. This transit is about a better balance inside and out, and you owe it to yourself to go there! In fact, you’re learning to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt, and to trust in a larger, more spiritual plan. In the process, you may be healing, letting go, and forgiving something or someone from the past. You could meet someone or experience synchronicities that point you in this direction today and this week.
This month, the Sun is inviting your social side to come out to play, dear Virgo, and might often point you in the direction of new and exciting projects or other happiness goals. Today, the Sun opposes Saturn in your romantic and creative sector, presenting some possible restrictions. There can be frustrations, delays, or possibly disapproval in a relationship or with a creative pursuit, or there can be some concerns or anxieties that keep you from thoroughly enjoying yourself just for the time being. You’re reminded of your responsibilities, and while this can feel limiting, you can benefit from slowing down and making some adjustments to your plans before going forward. Consider what’s best for you in the long run. It’s a yearly transit that encourages you to realign, tidy up your life or a project, take care of unfinished business, and adjust expectations. Still, your attention to friendships, networks, and experiences that remind you of your social needs and happiness is powerful and beneficial now. You’re learning to pay more attention to your dreams and wishes, as you have spent too much time putting the hopes and plans of others ahead of your own. It’s a time for improving your connection to your community and the quality of your life in the process.
The Sun opposes Saturn today, dear Libra, and this yearly transit can come as a reminder to correct some errors or redirect you if you’ve steered off-course. This may be most prominent in your work-home balance. Household or family responsibilities, restructuring, or some personal reservations and fears of exposure or risk can interrupt you now, but efforts to make corrections can be highly beneficial to you. This is a time for examining whether you’ve been practical or self-limiting. Most likely, it’s a bit of both! You may very well find that you’ve wasted too much energy dreading something that ended up much easier than you’d imagined. It’s a head-down, work-hard kind of energy that can be humbling and beneficial for you in the long run. Especially once over a hurdle, you seem to gravitate towards people, situations, or information that encourages you to grow, rise to a challenge, and elevate your goals. While you are looking to the past for answers, you have a strong sense of the future and what you’d like to make of it.
This month, the Sun encourages you to enjoy new experiences and explore different options, dear Scorpio, but today’s Sun-Saturn opposition reminds you of your responsibilities, paperwork, errands, or studies that need your attention. Or, there may be the need to go back to the drawing board with a project. Refinements and edits can be necessary now. Worries, fears of expansion, and insecurities might also limit your experiences today and this week, as these can keep you in a state of indecision if you let them. There could be disapproval or criticism that temporarily puts a damper on things. Negative reviews or feedback, if they occur now, might ultimately motivate you to tighten up your work or brush up on your skills. However, if there’s no lesson in it, do your best to discard negativity. It’s a time for finding ways to put habits that are holding you back from growing, learning, and experiencing life behind you. Positive shifts can happen as you find ways to embrace exploring new subjects and places, but first, you need to tackle your duties. This week holds unusual energy as you’re called to break out of past patterns, yet you’re also encouraged to take care of unfinished business.
The Sun-Saturn opposition occurring today is a yearly event, dear Sagittarius, and might bring a particular responsibility to your attention or an obstacle to overcome. Blockages related to money or business, and perhaps a stronger need for security and safety, can temporarily disrupt the equilibrium or your enjoyment of a relationship. There may be a disappointment or limitation encountered, or if you’ve let something go or procrastinated on a matter, this can be a time for facing it. Fear of loss can be at the root of either possessiveness or emotional distancing in a relationship, even though these seem to be opposite reactions. With the alignment of the Sun and North Node, you might connect with the right person, resources, or ideas that further your interests. It can be an excellent time to recognize your attachments and embrace those that are healthy for you while considering elements of your present and past that need to go.
Saturn in your sign faces off with the Sun today, dear Capricorn, which can bring worries or frustrations to your attention for handling. Keep in mind that limitations encountered this week are likely to set you on a new path that is better aligned with your values or more beneficial for you. Aim to be as patient as you can, both with others and with yourself if things are not going the way you expected. You may get the sense that you’re dealing with everything on your own, and if so, consider how to change the situation. A Sun-North Node alignment today encourages contact not only now but all week. It’s an important time for discovering relationship needs and exploring how they impact your sense of independence. This week is unique in that strong forces are challenging you to move out of your comfort zone so that you can move forward, while a focus on the past is just as vital. Through partnership or cooperation with others, you’ll get to the inner balance necessary for you to achieve your personal goals. You’re likely to see what has been holding you back from sharing yourself with others in healthy ways or forming close alliances.
With the Sun’s annual opposition to Saturn occurring now, dear Aquarius, it’s a time for seeing the reality of a situation, which can lead to the need to make adjustments. There may be tough questions, a reality check, or perhaps some criticism or a delay to deal with, particularly if something was overlooked, neglected, or avoided in the past. You’re motivated to work and take care of business, but you may need to take care of an emotional matter or an obligation to help someone, delaying things a little. If others aren’t appreciating your efforts, you may need a reminder of what you’re doing it all for, or the need for arriving at an improved work-life balance can become very apparent. Pacing yourself can only be for your benefit. As well, this is a week in which you seem drawn to situations, people, or ideas that help you improve your habits, work, or health. Improvements may involve honoring or refining routines or drawing more explicit boundaries that separate work and rest to your benefit.
There may be a reality check happening now with the Sun’s annual opposition to Saturn, dear Pisces, and even if it’s discouraging, it may very well motivate you to firm up your plans and take care of important details that you’ve overlooked in the past. Whether you’re feeling a little left out or are in the uncomfortable position of having to discipline or limit someone, you are growing and maturing in the process. It can be empowering to know where you stand, as plans made are sturdier and ultimately more realizable as a result. Limitations you deal with now can open you up to freedoms later. The Sun also aligns with the North Node in your creative sector, encouraging you to take a small creative risk or express yourself more spontaneously through playful or interesting channels. This can be a time for connecting with information, tools, or people pointing you in this kind of direction.
