Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re in a special position for personal recognition and a renewed sense of purpose, dear Aries. With the Sun’s alignment with Chiron in your sign, your unique qualities are showcased. You’ll have the chance to display your talents and natural savvy. A little appreciation from others can go a long way towards your efforts toward self-improvement. You are doing your own thing now, and others tend to see your value and worth. With Chiron rather newly in your sign, this energy is quite new, and there can be some rawness to it. It’s a time for self-honesty which can sometimes be initially uncomfortable, but you’re up to the challenge. You’re inclined to connect with what you truly want from your life as well as where improvements can be made, particularly in the ways you approach the world, take the lead, and present yourself.
The annual alignment of the Sun and Chiron happens today, dear Taurus, and occurs in a new sector of your solar chart this year, offering up a window through which to see your vulnerabilities a little more clearly. It can be a time of recognizing what needs releasing to move forward, or of a new understanding of a problem. Light shines on aspects of your personality and your life that you may not typically see or confront, and your intuition is strong. Even if there are uncomfortable elements to deal with, take advantage of this time. Something you hear or someone you meet by chance can stir up all sorts of feelings, thoughts, and ideas that ultimately lead you in new directions. This is all essential work since Uranus has recently moved into Taurus, encouraging you to act on impulse more often. Ideally, you’ll have a strong sense of self as you do.
The Sun and Chiron meet in your solar eleventh house today, dear Gemini, and while this is an annual event, it’s new territory for Chiron. Interactions can be inspirational and imaginative. Friends are in stronger focus, and long-term goals, wishes, and dreams are on the front burner. However, if you’ve been feeling a little left out or disappointed with friendships, then this can be emphasized now, too. What’s most important with Chiron involved is that you’re open to acknowledging vulnerabilities so that you get a step closer to healing, repairing, and possibly strengthening relationships with others–and with yourself. In fact, with Chiron in Aries now and for many years to come, it’s best to work on the self first. Even the more complex problems in your relationships can be tackled now with an open, humble approach and realistic expectations, starting with you.
You are in a lovely position to understand how you can improve your career or reputation through some work on vulnerabilities and insecurities now, dear Cancer, with the Sun and Chiron aligning at the top of your solar chart. It’s time to discover and embrace your unique approach to taking the lead or managing others, and as you learn to do so, you’ll find that people more readily see your value. Even so, if you are harboring insecurities related to taking charge of your life and responsibilities, these can be magnified now, but this does get you one step closer to self-understanding and healing. Today is also stellar for finding novel ways to approach private matters and feelings, in general, with loved ones. You’re likely to appreciate the openness of the day, even if at first you might feel somewhat exposed or uncomfortable.
Today’s energies are strong for sharing your thoughts with a special friend or partner, dear Leo. Look for people, places, and ideas to stimulate and inspire you. Personal appeal is strong, and you can be especially persuasive and attractive, particularly as you present your ideas and share your dreams and visions. Openness and humility are encouraged now as the Sun aligns with Chiron in harmony with your sign. You might intuitively arrive at an idea or plan that points you in an exciting new direction. Your words could catch on and influence many. As you face vulnerabilities, you may discover new avenues for expressing yourself. The need to venture outside of the usual routine is strong, and you are a little more open to experiencing new things and taking a few personal risks.
The emotional and spiritual side of your relationships and interactions is in stronger focus now, dear Virgo, and people and situations that are healing seem to draw you in. A Sun-Chiron alignment occurs today, and while it happens each year, it’s now affecting a new area of your solar chart–your intimacy sector. You stand to learn much about your inner motives with the Sun shining a light on your vulnerabilities. People are drawn in by your honesty. You can more easily see the ways you naturally give and receive energy. Your ability to see beauty in imperfections can expand your intimate world, and an exceptionally open exchange is possible. Insecurities about dependencies or money matters may also come to the surface now, and this prompts you to make useful changes.
This is a special time for your love connections and partnerships, dear Libra, with Pallas in your sign harmonizing with Venus. As well, Chiron and the Sun align in your partnership sector. Cooperation comes easily and naturally, and openness seems the best way to bond. Your talents or unique traits may be in demand today. It can be a good time for efforts toward a hobby or creative activity, as well. Peaceful interactions are a goal for you now. You are especially willing to learn from and with others, and there can be significant realizations about your relationships or relationship needs. There is more self-honesty now, and this can be slightly uncomfortable yet can open doors to healing and growing. Connections and attractions can be serendipitous, and it’s a healthy time for forgiving, healing, and understanding.
The Sun and Chiron come together today, dear Scorpio, encouraging an appreciation for human imperfection and giving us permission to be a little vulnerable. This alignment occurs every year, but what makes this year different is that it’s happening in a new area of your solar chart. You may be intuitively drawn to a new path of healing or a work method that serves you exceptionally well. When it comes to health, the mind-body connection is a big focus. It’s a generally good time for considering a new or improved health or fitness program, as you can be suddenly (and possibly uncomfortably) aware of a need to improve your self-care or health. You might discover new ways of approaching your work, or you could find that you’re rather efficiently solving problems that have previously baffled you.
This is a wonderful time to explore your romantic or creative needs, dear Sagittarius, and to do so in an especially open manner. You may feel extra sensitive to feedback from others, but this can also up chances to understand your needs and vulnerabilities more fully. An honest and compassionate look at your needs, particularly related to self-expression, leisure, children, and romance, can pull up opportunities to heal, grow, and improve now. The Sun forms its annual alignment with Chiron today, but what makes this year’s connection different is that it’s in a new sector of your solar chart –your solar fifth house. As you connect with your authentic self and deeper needs, you’re likely to attract others who truly appreciate you for your more unique qualities. Don’t be afraid to put your work on display, share your ideas, and connect with people with whom you want to spend your time. It’s a good time to go with the flow rather than expect inhuman capabilities from others.
Today’s energies are excellent for creative work- or money-related ideas, dear Capricorn. Even so, it may be what’s happening on an emotional level that’s most impressive now as the Sun and Chiron align at the bottom of your solar chart. This connection happens every year, but it’s the first time in ages that it’s happening in your home and family sector, and it will do so for some years to come. This is a time for giving extra attention to your loved ones and home and domestic routines, and for acknowledging your personal needs and insecurities. If you look for them, you’ll discover opportunities to boost your relationships with family and those close to you, mainly through honest, direct, and open interactions, or to connect more deeply with yourself. Be willing to face uncomfortable feelings if it means improved self-understanding. You may become more aware of difficult areas or wounded parts of yourself, but this allows you the chance to open up and to be vulnerable, which leads to healing.
You’re in a strong position to enjoy the cooperation of others today, dear Aquarius. Your romantic senses are heightened, and you’re exceptionally creative and open to new ideas and input. Circumstances seem to bring out the best in yourself and can highlight your strengths. Others find your ideas unique and even inspiring. Conversations and exchanges might stimulate creative work, a hobby, or a fabulous idea. Some of you could find new channels or platforms for self-expression, and these can be more imaginative, creative, and ultimately, more fulfilling. You have a stronger awareness of what’s right for you in terms of studies or personal interests, and this can draw you in a new direction. You can attractively present original and unique ideas, helping others to open up in kind.
The Sun and Chiron align today, dear Pisces, and while this is an annual occurrence, it can feel quite new to you since it’s the first time they converge since Chiron has left your sign. This is a powerful time for taking an honest look at your needs as well as vulnerabilities surrounding money, income, and your talents, and while you’ll get this chance many times in the coming years, it’s this raw first look that can be wonderfully rewarding. You might see practical matters in a whole new light or from an entirely different perspective now. You may be confronting fears or insecurities about your talents or earnings, and this opens you to new ways to heal, improve, and grow.
