Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour planetary ruler, Mars, your ruling planet, aligns with Neptune today, dear Aries. In the spotlight this week is a new take on a past matter or a fuller sense of what you need from downtime. Your dreaming world is very active. You may be enjoying a sense of faith in letting things unfold naturally, and this calms you. You might recognize the need for some extra time for personal activities that nourish you on a spiritual or emotional level. You might otherwise get a strong feeling that you should be taking action on a long-standing problem, helping to clear the decks for new beginnings. In moderation, fantasizing can be therapeutic. There can be quite a bit of action in your private world or with your health. Your gut feelings are powerful now. Testing your boundaries can be in focus, and impulses can certainly be unusual but also very revealing.
TaurusNew ideas, plans, or visions of your future can inspire and motivate you today, dear Taurus. You’re looking for a little more from your life or meaning in your experiences as Mars aligns with Neptune in your solar eleventh house. There can be some ambiguity or mystery with a friend or associate, or an event, meeting, or special memory jumpstarts a whole new direction. This is a time for discovering or renewing a passion. While you can be enthusiastic about a new project or goal, be sure to check the details before going forward. Friendships or networking can introduce temptations or encourage unusual desires, and there can be some synchronicity happening now that takes you on a new path. You can be moved by a cause and feel especially passionate about a dream, belief, or idea.
GeminiWith Mars and Neptune aligning in your career sector, dear Gemini, it’s a time for opening your heart to new possibilities, particularly regarding your life path, career, or status. You might consider ways to find more meaning in the work you do. Your energy levels are highly dependent on your motivation levels or a sense of purpose with this transit. Today’s influences encourage you to follow a goal or desire. Demands from work and others can be draining nonetheless, as you’re more in gear for imagining and envisioning what you want than for taking steps forward towards your goals. You may be tempted to escape responsibilities or to daydream the day away. A better option may be to tap into your imagination and conjure up images of how you’d like the direction of your life to go. Allow the path to unfold rather than try to push a particular route.
CancerYour fantasy life is rich and colorful this week, dear Cancer, particularly with Mars and Neptune joining forces today in your spirit sector. You are personally magnetic, seeking and sharing inspiration. You seem to benefit as you let yourself live in the moment, just for now, allowing your intuition to guide you. While it’s not an ideal time to sign contracts or engage in work that requires attention to facts and figures, it’s a big day for creative expression. You may be longing to get away and could find yourself daydreaming of exotic activities today. You’re also looking for experiences that add more meaning to your life and that nourish your spirit. It’s a great time to discover a new interest or to open yourself to a new perspective that can motivate you for some time.
LeoToday’s Mars-Neptune alignment continues to stir up deep feelings and desires, dear Leo. You might feel inspired to put a fantasy into motion. You’re finding ways to bring more imagination, romance, or spirituality into your life. Setting too high or unrealistic expectations or reading too much into what your loved one says can temporarily feel good, but may not hold its weight. While some fantasy is good, if the regular world seems black and white in comparison, then you may be missing out on the opportunity to make your current world a better place. Otherwise, this is a wonderful time for magical sharing experiences. The desire to bond deeply with someone, or to make a spiritual connection to someone or something, can be powerful. There can be an increased appreciation for subtlety in your intimate life.
VirgoToday’s energies highlight your need for others, dear Virgo, pulling out rather dreamy feelings about someone or a relationship. Your relationship needs are in strong focus. It can be a powerful time for building up your enthusiasm or motivation, especially through the support or encouragement of someone special or with a relationship goal in mind. There’s a mysterious aura around you now that can be quite appealing, and you draw others to you very naturally. The dreamer in you comes to the fore, but do take care that you don’t dramatize something trivial in an attempt to escape from dull elements of your life. There is a chance that others are confusing or deceptive, or that you’re questioning your vision of a person or relationship. Another possibility is that you’re attracting unusual experiences in your relationships. Whatever occurs now, it’s likely to stimulate a new pursuit or a resolution to put your dreams into motion or to pursue a passion.
LibraToday’s energies tend to spotlight and support your fantasy or daydreams, dear Libra, although you may feel a bit discouraged before you feel inspired. You’re turning in to the most subtle elements of the atmosphere around you that might normally escape your notice. You may have been especially sensitive to your environment in recent days, and this energy comes to a peak now. It’s a strong time for creative visualization, but you’re also feeling compelled to do something about what you want. Take the time to consider ways to incorporate more imagination and creativity into your daily life, work, and health and wellness pursuits. You’ll be far more productive if your endeavors are interesting, inspired, or creative. Romantically speaking, this can be an exciting and even exhilarating day if you allow yourself to enjoy the moment. A relationship may not be straightforward, although there can be a lot of fantasy and desire stimulated now.
ScorpioMars and Neptune come together in your sector of joy today, dear Scorpio, and you’re seeking inspiration. With Mars in this area of your solar chart since mid-May, you’re more inclined to action with your creative and romantic pursuits. You’re more actively seeking your joy, pursuing pleasure, and participating in recreational endeavors. Today, you can feel especially compelled to go after what you want in these areas, but you need to do so differently. Avoid rushing into something, but do pay attention to your desires, which can be considerable and perhaps surprising. It’s a great time for artistic expression, and at the least, the desire to express yourself uniquely, romantically, or creatively is potent. Others find you especially attractive and magnetic. Emotional desires and whims can feel urgent now, but your best bet will be to recognize them and draw on the patience to fill them.
SagittariusToday’s Mars-Neptune alignment can stir interesting and unusual desires, whims, impulses, and situations, dear Sagittarius. These things can be confusing on the one hand, but on the other, there can be inspiration to discover as you seek more meaning from your pursuits. It’s probably best not to follow every whim that overcomes you, but listening to your unrest and urges is important, as they’re giving you clues as to what may be missing in your life. The lack is more likely than not to be something intangible with Neptune involved. If inspiration is lacking, you can feel drained or discouraged temporarily. Taking time out may be in order, and you might allow yourself extra personal space to recharge. It’s a good day for visualizing what you’d like to do with your life. It’s also great for creative approaches to family matters or activities, and for bringing more imagination to the home environment.
CapricornMars and Neptune come together in your communications sector today, dear Capricorn, awakening a strong urge to learn, connect, or put a unique idea into motion. If you’ve been feeling a growing desire for something more interesting, unusual, or creative to engage your mind in recent days, it’s likely due to this transit. There can be unusual conversations, connections, and synchronicities happening now. The energy of the day is decidedly creative, but also somewhat impractical and restless. It’s a strong time to communicate creatively or compassionately and is quite excellent for developing marketing or promotional strategies. You may allow wishful thinking to interfere with your reasoning power temporarily, so it may not be the best time for endeavors that require attention to detail. As long as you’re able to separate fact from fiction, you’re in a good position to work with the energies of the day rather than against them. You see the importance and impact of thought, intention, and your own words on your life. It may be best to avoid rushing to share your thoughts and ideas, but it’s a great time for ideas that can empower you not only now but down the road.
AquariusMars aligns with Neptune today, dear Aquarius, stirring your desire to put your dreams into action. This can be an interesting day for business and money, but not necessarily practical. Try not to let money or possessions slip through your fingers right now, and watch for others overstepping their boundaries. It’s best not to focus too much on what you lack in terms of needs, wants, and desires. Instead, this is a time for recognizing that you may want more and catching some inspiration. You might feel a sudden urge to handle a money matter. You could come up with unusual and creative approaches to managing your resources or employing your talents. It’s a good time for envisioning what you want and letting your imagination go. You tend to express your unusual or sudden desires and feelings impulsively now. If meaning is missing in your activities now, you’re likely to feel drained, and this can serve as an important prompt. If you’re inspired by a stronger sense of purpose or meaning, you can accomplish much.
PiscesMars moves into alignment with Neptune in your sign today, dear Pisces, pulling up so many different desires and impulses that you may not know where to begin. Still, this is a fine time for feeling inspired and bold. You’re motivated to express your creativity or uniqueness. While you can be extremely persuasive, your emotions are so strong that you can feel things in extremes, whether it’s happiness, restlessness, or discouragement. Consider ways to make changes that will add color, flair, and imagination to your daily life. Mars has been adding electricity and verve to your personality since mid-May, and its alignment with dreamy Neptune today suggests a need to feel inspired to take action. You are especially magnetic — people find you intriguing and perhaps a little exotic today.
