Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun and Chiron align in your sign today, dear Aries, and this yearly conjunction assumes special importance this year because it’s tied to yesterday’s New Moon, also in your sign. This influence spotlights the traits that make you stand out, but it’s also an ideal time for self-honesty. It invites you to start fresh in an authentic way. You may be connecting with what you truly want from your life, as well as taking an honest look at where improvements should happen. Up for change now are the ways you approach the world, take the lead, and present yourself. Your natural talents, the areas where you shine, and your savvy are all readily discoverable and perhaps on display in some manner. You are doing your own thing today and in the weeks ahead, and your honesty or realness attracts others. This is a potentially strong time for a renewed sense of purpose. You are doing your own thing now, and others tend to see your value and worth.
TaurusThe Sun and Chiron form their yearly alignment today, dear Taurus, helping you recognize and understand your vulnerabilities. Because it happens shortly after the New Moon this year, it’s an especially potent influence. Strong energy is with you for releasing yourself from something from the past. Or, you might gain a new understanding of a problematic or long-standing matter from the past. Light shines on aspects of your personality and your life that you may not typically see or confront. 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 lead you in new directions. There is some tendency to keep to yourself at this time, but it’s also a fine time to figure things out. Greater self-understanding is a worthy goal at this time.
GeminiThe Sun and Chiron align today, dear Gemini, just a day after the New Moon, suggesting it’s a more potent influence than usual, even though it occurs each year. It’s time for a better understanding of your social urges and needs as well as your happiness goals. Someone might inspire or motivate you to pursue a dream. Friends are in stronger focus this week, 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. However, you are also open to accepting your vulnerabilities so that you get a step closer to healing, repairing, and possibly strengthening your connections. An open, brave, yet humble approach and realistic expectations are key to these improvements. While you may need to do some juggling later today, you can also pull out something useful from even the oddest thoughts and conversations you may have now.
CancerThe key to success now is to keep it real, avoid showiness, and let others see you for who you are, dear Cancer, with the Sun in alignment with Chiron at the top of your solar chart. Interviews, conversations, or chats can go well with more openness and willingness to learn from others. Particular emphasis is on your career, responsibilities, and public life right now with yesterday’s New Moon and today’s Sun-Chiron alignment. Any insecurities you may have about taking charge of your life and responsibilities can certainly emerge, and you can feel initially rather exposed. Still, while they can be trigger points, it’s a great time for acknowledging fears honestly, which helps set you on the path to healing. This perspective can also spark improvements, and while you may not be seeing eye-to-eye with others on your goals, this conflict may very well motivate you to find your own way. You are in a good position to understand how you can improve your business or reputation through some work on vulnerable areas. It’s time to discover and embrace your unique approach to taking the lead or managing others, and as this happens, people more readily see your value.
LeoYou’re thinking about the big picture and discovering new avenues for self-expression, dear Leo. This morning’s Sun-Chiron alignment harmonizes with your sign and, because it occurs so close to a New Moon, its influence is stronger and longer-lasting. This can be a time of awakening to a new perspective that motivates you. You’re open to experiencing new things, and you’re seeking ideas to stimulate and inspire you. Your ideas and words could catch on and influence many. You can be especially persuasive and attractive, particularly as you share your dreams and visions. Willingness to be vulnerable or to recognize and face your insecurities opens up doors for you now. As the day advances, there can be some dramatic thinking and conversations. Avoid spending too much time deciding the best path — your gut feelings may serve you better than mentally tossing around possibilities.
VirgoThe emotional and spiritual side of your relationships and interactions is in stronger focus right now, dear Virgo, and people and situations that are healing seem to draw you in. In turn, others are drawn to your honesty. Today’s Sun-Chiron alignment is a yearly influence that helps open you up to your feelings and fears. Because it’s tied to the New Moon, it has more (and longer) power. You are particularly open and more willing to understand power dynamics, putting you in a good position to learn much about your inner motives with the Sun shining a light on these things. Insecurities about dependencies or money matters may also come to the surface now, and this prompts you to make useful changes. Later today, ideas may be too big, or you’re suffering from too much information. You might decide to tune some things out or avoid investing too much energy or faith in some matters to help you unwind.
LibraRelationships and balance continue to be a focus today, dear Libra. A Sun-Chiron alignment is powerful for healing a relationship or your attitude towards relating. This annual conjunction is more potent and far-reaching than usual because it’s tied to yesterday’s New Moon. You are especially willing to learn from and with others, and there can be significant realizations about your relationships or relationship needs happening now and in the coming days. With more self-honesty, there can be some discomfort but opening doors toward healing. It’s a healthy time for forgiving, healing, and understanding. There can also be new directions in a relationship or increased awareness of what you need and want. Cooperation comes easily and naturally, and openness seems the best way to bond.
ScorpioToday’s Sun-Chiron alignment encourages an appreciation for our imperfections, dear Scorpio. It permits us to be a little more vulnerable and “real.” This yearly influence has a little more potency this time around since it occurs close to the New Moon. You can be 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. It’s a brilliant day for seeing the bigger picture, and for solving problems that have previously baffled you. Opening up to suggestions and recommendations for improving your life brings rewards now.
SagittariusThe Sun forms its annual alignment with Chiron today, dear Sagittarius, and because it happens so soon after the New Moon, its power of influence increases. An honest and compassionate look at your needs, particularly related to self-expression, play, hobbies, leisure, children, and romance, can pull up opportunities to heal, grow, and improve. Your more unique qualities are in the spotlight today and in the coming days. It’s a good time to share your work or ideas and to go with the flow rather than expect inhuman capabilities from others. You can be feeling a little sensitive to feedback, but with openness, you get the chance to understand your vulnerabilities and needs more fully. As you connect with your authentic self and deeper needs, you’re likely to attract others who truly appreciate you for who you are.
CapricornThis is a time for pouring more energy and love into your personal life, home, and domestic routines, dear Capricorn. Yesterday’s New Moon happened in the sector of your chart that rules these matters, and today, the Sun and Chiron align in that same sector. It’s a good time to recognize and face your vulnerabilities and needs. You could boost your relationships with loved ones mainly through honest, direct, and open interactions or your self-honesty improves your relationship with yourself. It’s a good idea to open yourself up to facing somewhat uncomfortable matters for growth and improvement. You dare to leave a negative outlook or situation behind you. Still, there’s more sensitivity to family dynamics, and perhaps increased awareness of difficult areas or wounded parts of you, but this allows you the chance to open up and to be vulnerable, which leads to healing. You have much wisdom to gain now, particularly about your heart’s desires and deeper needs and feelings.
AquariusToday is strong for discovering better ways of communicating, dear Aquarius, and this theme can stick with you for some time. You can be opening up the lines of communication. The Sun forms its annual alignment with Chiron, and since it’s tied to yesterday’s New Moon, it has more power this year. You might discover 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 good for you, and this can draw you in a new direction. You can present original and unique ideas in attractive packages, and your realness and integrity are shining through, encouraging others to open up in kind. You’re open to new ideas and input, and this helps you grow. Aim to take your time digesting everything you learn before making decisions, but avoid the pitfalls of too much information as the day advances.
PiscesYou’re in a powerful position to take an honest look at your needs and vulnerabilities surrounding money, income, and talents, dear Pisces. The New Moon just occurred in your money sector, and now, the Sun and Chiron align in this same area of your solar chart. You can see practical matters in a new light or from a different perspective. It’s a creative time when you can come up with unique approaches or solutions to your practical affairs, and you can be very resourceful and imaginative with what you already have. You might face fears or insecurities about your talents or earnings, but this opens you to new ways to heal, improve, and grow. Later today, take your time coming to conclusions and especially making promises. Enjoy exercises of the mind but reserve judgment for when you have more of the story.
