Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Saturn’s move into your friends and hopes sector today, dear Aries, you are learning to give to others what you want to receive from them. It’s a good time to see friendships, social affairs, or projects more clearly, although sometimes a little sternly! You might discover that some of your friends or group associations are no longer in line with your current path, and some connections or means of connecting may be breaking down while others strengthen. Feelings of lack in your social life can magnify, prompting changes. It’s a good time for establishing long-lasting ties, but you may deal with some disillusionments or adjustments. Weeding out what seems now to be frivolous or unsatisfying from your life is possible at this time as you become more serious about what you want on a personal level. During this cycle that lasts for the better part of the next three years, you are less vulnerable to self-delusion. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023.
TaurusWith Saturn moving into your solar tenth house, dear Taurus, you’ll be re-evaluating your professional standing, responsibilities, and outward signs of success. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. During these periods, you get the chance to build a secure foundation in your professional and/or most public life. It could be a time for receiving recognition and career “rewards,” or you might be feeling the weight of poor decisions made to date, and this necessitates a shift in priorities. You’ll be striving toward a more realistic approach to achieving your dreams and goals during this transit that will be with you for much of the next three years. You are taking a realistic look at what you’ve built and what you’ve achieved. While there can be moments of tension or stress, you no longer view your place in the world, career, reputation, and standing in society with rose-colored glasses, and this aids decision-making. It’s a no-nonsense period for better managing your responsibilities.
GeminiWith Saturn’s entry into your solar ninth house today, dear Gemini, you’re beginning a period of building greater personal strength. This is due in large part to a more reliable connection with reality, a firmer grip of your priorities, and a better attitude towards meeting your responsibilities. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. Overall, your life is likely to feel more stable, and you’ll generally feel more comfortable with who you are. Because you have a more mature grasp of your capabilities, you project a more responsible, perhaps serious, and self-assured personality to others. You are taking a sterner look at your belief systems. It can also be a period of teaching others or coming to the end of a cycle of learning, personal interests, or business. You’re challenged to look at life and your future more realistically and practically. There can be important accomplishments in publishing or education for some of you.
CancerYour values can be evolving with Saturn’s new transit of your solar eighth house, dear Cancer, and this process will continue for much of the next three years. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. During this cycle, you can discover that previous methods of controlling your environment and the people in your life don’t serve you well. Or, there can be a change in support, financial or otherwise, that requires adjustments. You’re challenged to tidy up and manage those things you share with others (money, resources, power) as well as matters of dependence and intimacy. It’s a time of tackling fears of losing control, and it’s a good time to work on a plan to reduce debt. Dissatisfaction or frustrations getting what you want, especially in relationships or with money, may seem to magnify, motivating you to make changes. As you discover that you can live without certain things or as you adapt to changing circumstances, you build a stronger relationship with–and trust in–yourself.
LeoWith Saturn’s move into your opposing sign for much of the next three or so years, dear Leo, relationships and your relationship needs can be evolving. At times, you may be experiencing the less flattering side of relationships, of a partner, and even of yourself. While at times discouraging, you will certainly be learning a lot about yourself and your needs from partnership. The best use of this period is to work on your side of the partnership equation and take whatever steps necessary to improve it. Also, it may be helpful to face complex emotions in your relationships without glossing them over or dismissing them as not part of you. Someone may seem to bring heavy energy into your life, but your needs might also be transforming. It’s a powerful period for commitments and partnering since you’ll be getting a strong sense of who and what is best for you. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023.
VirgoSaturn begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Virgo, where it will stay for much of the next three years–until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. During this cycle, you’ll be straightening out your daily affairs, work, routines, health, habits, and self-care programs. You’re likely to recognize the problem areas that have held you back in these areas, and you can feel some pressure to bring things into order. It’s an excellent time for starting new regimens to better your health and well-being, such as regular exercise or more structured and productive use of your time. Ultimately, you’ll feel better about your duties, work, or services after realistically assessing matters and manking the necessary adjustments. Don’t worry too much if your efforts are not yet visible or recognized since the effort you put in now can bring great rewards down the road. Keep in mind that Saturn transits often have delayed results or rewards!
LibraSaturn begins its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Libra, and will stay here until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. Saturn’s favoring of “quality over quantity” applies to your romantic life, your creative expression, and how/what you seek in terms of entertainment and recreation during this cycle. You tend to take things a little more seriously, for better or for worse, and this means you can focus on one or two things and do them well. It can be a good time for meaningful relationships as well as creative productivity. You might turn a hobby or pastime into a business or find practical ways to enjoy yourself. With Saturn moving in harmony to your sign, this can be a stable and responsible period of your life overall.
ScorpioDomestic duties and obligations to your family may seem on the increase with Saturn’s new transit of the sector of your solar chart that governs home, family, and support systems, dear Scorpio. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023– it’s in effect for much of the next three years. While it’s important to give your family and home life the attention they need, putting too much into these things can be taxing. It’s best to strive for some balance, but it’s also important to reorganize your personal and domestic world. It can also be an important time for brand new career or long-term business beginnings. You may be laying the groundwork and building a long-lasting project to boost your security that will ultimately have much significance in your life. Home, family, personal, and nurturing or sustenance matters are areas that require increased discipline, realism, tradition, or structure.
SagittariusYour interests are evolving, and you may become quite serious about certain topics and studies with Saturn’s new transit of your communications sector, dear Sagittarius. This transit will be with you for much of the next three years–until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. You might also recognize a strong need for deeper conversations, and some impatience with more superficial connections and topics, which can now seem quite distracting. You may, at times, feel rather overwhelmed by your day-to-day dealings and disruptions, or feel some pressure to produce ideas and make them work. However, it’s a powerful time for finding your voice, fine-tuning your communications, and structured learning. This can be a period of serious study or training and detail work. Much can be accomplished!
CapricornSaturn leaves your sign today, dear Capricorn, although it will return to Capricorn from July to December before leaving once again. Saturn’s move into your solar second house marks a new stage of taking stock of your effectiveness, self-worth, and finances. This stage of your life is a practical one–it’s a period for a more responsible and realistic approach to money and possessions. Belt-tightening is in order and very useful. Getting organized and learning to accept and market your talents are themes in this next stage of your life. Look for overlapping or unnecessary expenses and other redundancies, and aim to rid yourself of material clutter during this cycle. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023.
AquariusSaturn enters your sign today, dear Aquarius, and will transit Aquarius until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. This transit signals a period of increased personal responsibilities, attention to detail, and efforts to maintain and improve your health and personal affairs. Recognizing your limitations may not sound like fun, and perhaps may not even sound healthy, but with Saturn’s move into your sign, it’s something that can truly help you now and especially in the future. You’ll be learning your true capabilities, and since too-high expectations can have a way of producing guilt, this reality check is useful. It’s not about underselling yourself, but rather, a time for redefining goals so that they are more realistic and doable. Saturn will be in your sign for the better part of the next three years. You may sometimes feel pushed to discover your independence or to rely on yourself during this period. However, it’s a strong period for getting your life in order. Today, the Moon moves into your resources sector, encouraging you to seek out a predictable, steady pace rather than jump into something new.
PiscesSaturn enters the sign just behind yours and your solar twelfth house, dear Pisces, beginning an important cycle of contemplation, spiritual renovation, and better attention to mental or emotional health. It’s a time for facing your inner demons and tackling the vague fears that undermine you. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until July 1st, and then later, from December 2020 to March 2023. The twelfth house, in some ways, is a dumping ground for things we have left undone, and Saturn here wants you to sort through it all and keep only those things that you truly need for future development. This process can sometimes feel long and slow, but it can be most rewarding. It’s important to rid yourself of regrets or perceived failures and disappointments as a Saturn-Sun cycle enters its last leg before coming full circle in 2023. You may be attracted to alternative ways of living and self-study fields. You are in a great position to evaluate whether you are getting enough time for adequate sleep, rest, and reflection.
