Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThings are heating up for you regarding responsibilities, leadership, or career, dear Aries. You can be quite masterful in a leadership role now, and it’s a powerful time for making your mark and going after your goals with gusto. For some, this can be a time of intensity in your career or with your reputation, whether it’s about pressures to get ahead or ramped-up concerns about the future. You might feel scrutinized, but feedback may very well fuel your ambition to improve. Taking your ego out of the equation can be most helpful now, although not very easy! Aim to top your previous performance. This can be an excellent time to approach a project in an entirely new way. If you channel your energy well, you can get a whole lot done, particularly when it comes to revitalizing something important to you. Try not to waste this opportunity on battles. Much of the day is favorable for emotionally rejuvenating activities. The Moon enters your sign later today, exciting your feelings, but its harmony with Saturn encourages you to channel them constructively.
TaurusMars and Pluto align early today, dear Taurus, and while it’s a tense combination, in many ways, it’s also a power boost. You might discover or develop a personal interest or course of study with this energy. It’s a fine time for promotion, teaching, learning, guiding, and advancing your skills or knowledge. While this can be a strong time for getting an answer, things can get heated and intense pretty quickly, making it important to be mindful of where you put your energy. Similarly, stubbornness can be positive when it involves working towards an important goal, and counter-productive when you shut yourself down to possible alternatives. Watch for over-defending an opinion. It can be a good time for building or rebuilding based on newly discovered passions. The Moon in your solar eleventh house harmonizes with Mars in your adventurous ninth house, encouraging cooperative activities that break the routine, boost your spirits, or expand your mind. Later today, the Moon moves into your privacy sector, and you may seek some form of retreat or escape.
GeminiYou’re in an excellent position to get to the bottom of a matter today, dear Gemini. Mars and Pluto’s alignment suggests profound emotions, intensity in a relationship, or the need to make significant changes. It’s a powerful time to break free from a bad habit, and intimate relationships can turn a corner and transform now. If you’ve been frustrated with a situation, it may reach a head, and you’ll want to do something about it, particularly if you’ve been over-attached. You may decide to commit to a lifestyle change based on current circumstances in your life. Financial pressures are possible now, but it’s also a strong time for identifying areas that can change. Thoughtful planning is highly favored as the day advances. You are emotionally geared to take care of business, and you’re ready to tackle a challenge. Taking on the role of a guide helps you to refresh your skills and knowledge.
CancerThere is intensity in relationships with Mars and Pluto joining forces in the sign opposite yours early today, dear Cancer. It’s best to recognize that something has to change and work with it rather than fight it. You are attracting intense energy into your life through your relationships. Tensions that have been brewing can now emerge and demand attention or action. Avoidance doesn’t seem to be an option right now! Frustrations and difficulties can escalate quickly, mainly because the mood is complex. Aim to be strong within yourself so that you can project this strength outward, as people around you could be trying to be more forceful and assertive than you. You’re in the mood for a change of scenery and refreshing activities today. As the day advances, it’s easier to take charge and feel productive.
LeoThere is powerful energy in your solar chart related to the areas of work, service, or health and self-care efforts, dear Leo. This has been the case for some time, and today, Mars and Pluto align in the same sector. Changes are essential, and while tension can run high, this can help push you to new heights. The determination to meet or beat a goal is strong, perhaps to obsessive levels! You might decide to eliminate habits in your routine that are counter-productive so that you can focus on those that serve your greater goals. Watch for power struggles with others, as the general atmosphere today inclines people to extremes in their attempts to gain some control over their own lives. If you let frustrations overwhelm you, you are wasting this powerful energy that’s better harnessed and channeled into productive work. As the day advances, you’re in good shape for both planned and spontaneous activities. You’re particularly resourceful right now, and you begin to feel more balanced.
VirgoPassions and ambitions have been building in intensity, dear Virgo, reaching a head with Mars and Pluto aligning early today. This alignment occurs in harmony with your sign, helping you make the most of it. You can become very single-minded now, and if you channel this well, you can move mountains. Where extremes are not appropriate and possibly destructive, it’s best to avoid them. However, concentrating on making improvements can be fabulous now, and you may have the chance to zero in on a problem or perplexing matter. Obsessive thinking is not going to do much more than stress you out. However, it’s a good time to try to face your fears and do something about them. You may experience a strong desire to gain more control over your life, and you’re ready to go out on a limb now. While today you’re not quite as independent as other days, you’re nevertheless raring to go and ready to take on a challenge.
LibraThere is intensity brewing in your personal life now as Mars and Pluto come together at the bottom of your solar chart, dear Libra. You may have been dealing with complicated emotions and managing fears. Ideally, you get the chance to channel excess energy into a project around the home or for/with family, and you can be determined to make a difference or a significant change or transformation. The focus should be on renovation, whether this is literal or figurative. This Mars-Pluto aspect can challenge you to confront, manage, and handle emerging issues that have been buried, swept under the carpet, or otherwise hidden. Avoid the pitfall of expecting immediate changes and results. Aim to start working on problem areas now, and avoid going head to head with people over surface issues, as this will get you nowhere. Patience and deliberate action will reward you. Putting in the effort towards something productive, however big or small, is what satisfies today.
ScorpioYour rulers, Mars and Pluto, align early today, dear Scorpio, and this is a powerful combination of energies that brings a feeling of urgency to your life. There can be some tendency to push too far or to test yourself and your limits. You might be thinking of something obsessively. However, it’s a good time to keep in mind that gaining more control over your life doesn’t mean knowing all but is about managing your behavior and actions. Channeling this energy well, you can also be highly productive when it comes to taking action on matters that you’ve previously only been considering. You can find yourself thoroughly absorbed in a pet project or with studies and ideas, and ambitiously chasing a goal–this is the powerful benefit of this combination. Your powers of persuasion are even stronger than usual. As the day advances, you’re gravitating to activities that entertain and offer you a hearty challenge. Later today, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and your focus turns to your routines.
SagittariusMars aligns with Pluto in your resources sector early today, dear Sagittarius, and there can be intensity revolving around a money matter or question of values. Tensions can lead you to a decision or a significant change. You have a stronger sense of what truly matters, and you’re better at parting with those things you no longer need. There may be some power struggles with others if you feel undervalued, however. If you’re getting frustrated too quickly, consider that gaining more control over your life and your material resources may be at the root, since you don’t want to feel at anyone’s mercy. What you make, own, and believe in can be sensitive topics today, but you can also discover a whole lot about yourself and your fears if you explore these things more deeply. You’re driven to act with purpose, but your focus tends to shift toward having fun as the day advances.
CapricornMars and Pluto align in your sign early today, dear Capricorn, and recent tensions that have been building reach a head. This can be a time of great personal passion, ambition, and influence. You might try to use these powers constructively and enjoy the courage to meet and then beat your goals, but do watch for a tendency to either come on a little too strong or to push yourself too hard. This can also be a time when people are looking to you to lead. You can feel super-motivated to reach a personal goal. You might embrace your desire to go after what you want and find it empowering to do so. It’s a day for having a huge say in what others think of you since the power to shape your image is strong. You can get amazing results from working on self-improvement and self-control now. Much of the rest of the day can be busy and chatty but quite engaging. Tomorrow, a New Moon will occur in your home and family sector, and today, try to unwind and consider new goals for your personal life.
AquariusEarly today, energies are intense as Mars and Pluto align, dear Aquarius, and this may point to a personal dilemma or challenging decision. Aim to get in touch with deep desires and confront them. There can be a lot going on beneath the surface, and there can be some fixation on past events, guilty feelings, or missed or lost opportunities. Self-honesty is essential to manage your emotions and move forward feeling refreshed and purged. If you find yourself obsessing over past mistakes or otherwise attracted to things that you know have the power to bring you down, try to pull yourself out of it. The focus now should be on letting go and releasing rather than building up more frustrations and resentments. Tomorrow’s New Moon brings fresh energy for a new start. Today, there can be personal revelations, and these can lead to projects that motivate and thrill you. There can be a nice focus on recycling, saving, or repairing — you enjoy making the most of your resources.
PiscesA Mars-Pluto alignment occurs early today, dear Pisces, and there can be some intensity. Something in your life needs an overhaul, and the courage is with you to take action. A major project can be all-consuming now. If there’ve been tensions with a friend or competitor, they can most certainly raise now since feelings are complicated. You could be in the position to make changes regarding friendship. This transit has “cleaning up” energy to it that can take us to a stronger place if we apply it constructively to make improvements. You may feel prompted to put outworn attitudes and activities that no longer serve you well behind you. Strong feelings for or about a friend, group, long-term goal, or cause can be in focus. With this transit, it’s wise to remind yourself that power doesn’t come from knowing all, but rather from knowing yourself and being honest with yourself. The Moon animates your emotions and encourages you to express them.
