Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars begins energizing your sector of friendship, community, hopes, and wishes today, dear Aries, making it a fine time to think about what you’re doing to keep yourself happy, connected, and engaged. Energy levels are increasing, and your progressive spirit is alive and well during this cycle that lasts until May 12th. This transit is strong for your innovative side, which is sure to come to the fore. You’re ready to branch out and consider new options, and not much can stop you from pursuing a cause you deem worthy. You could be putting more energy into organizing projects, making plans, networking, and taking the lead in group endeavors or with friends. Energy levels may very well improve all-around since Mars is your sign ruler and is now working in harmony with your sign. If there have been tensions brewing with friends, they can surface for handling during this cycle. Today and tomorrow, with Mars quickly meeting Saturn, a block or obstacle can be in place but could be a blessing in disguise, as slowing down may be best.
TaurusMars begins its transit of your solar tenth house today, dear Taurus, and will stick around here until May 12th. You can feel more ambitious or driven during this cycle, eager to perform well, take charge, and meet your responsibilities. You’ve likely had many ideas about what you’d like to do to improve your life, and now you feel you have the tools and confidence to put these into action. With Mars in conflict with your sign during this cycle, you may need to work a little harder to overcome obstacles and challenges, but you’re also quite motivated. Your enterprising spirit is powerful now. Today and tomorrow, you could face some blocks or unexpected responsibilities. The Moon spends another day in your resources sector, and you are focused on matters of comfort and security.
GeminiMars moves into your spirit sector today, dear Gemini, stimulating your desire to improve, advance, and enjoy new ideas and experiences. You’ve been focusing much of your energy inward, and you’re now beginning a more outgoing, forthright, and assertive cycle. During this cycle, in force until May 12th, you’re a little more interested in learning new things and experimenting with different activities. Energy and confidence levels are strengthening. Healthy competition or a satsifying challenge can serve to motivate and energize you. You can be particularly enthusiastic about your beliefs, opinions, and visions at this time. Today, the Moon in your sign all day amps up your emotions and gives you more visibility. You’re in pleasant focus now. Today and tomorrow, however, you can be called upon to draw upon some discipline or face a responsibility.
CancerMars moves into your intimacy sector today, dear Cancer, where it will transit until May 12th. Your focus turns inward, and your disposition is a little more reflective or retiring than usual. Your ability to manage stress and pressure increase. There can be a welcome appreciation for your resourcefulness, talents, and efforts in the weeks ahead. You are now in an unusually good position to observe and strategize your next moves. Your private life can heat up, and it can be a time of intensity within yourself or in a close relationship. A lot is going on behind the scenes now as Mars stirs up hidden or more profound desires. Sometimes this transit correlates with disputes over money or the need to take charge and in connection with shared finances, loans, or debts. However, it’s important not to rush a financial or intimate matter, as you’re inclined to do right now. If you need the courage to handle issues on these lines, then you certainly have it in the coming weeks. Today, the Moon’s stay in your privacy sector is another signal that some introspection will do you some good. Today and tomorrow, if you’re getting ahead of yourself, you’ll be reminded to slow down.
LeoMars heads into your partnership sector today, dear Leo, and is in opposition to your sign until May 12th. During this period, activities with a partner can be in strong focus, or tense relationship matters can reach a point of release. There can be a focus on assertion and activity in your relationships. For example, you may be more assertive/active with a partner than usual, or you are bringing out these qualities in a partner. Passions rise, but so do tempers! There can be some real back-and-forth or push-and-pull as you attempt to work towards equality and balance with someone. You may be clearing the air or focused on getting things done with a companion. Healthy competition can motivate you to up your game. While Mars receives some fine support during its transit of your partnership sector, it first meets up with Saturn tomorrow, and this can have a way of pointing out blocks or responsibilities that slow you down. Today, the Moon is in a sociable area of your chart, making it a good time for inspiring others or finding inspiration.
VirgoMars begins its transit of your work and health sector today, dear Virgo, bringing dynamic energy to your daily routines. Until May 12th (while this transit lasts), you can be super-motivated to get more work done and to take better care of your body through more hands-on or ambitious health and nutrition programs. Difficulties arise if you feel others are pushing their work on you or telling you what to do, and if you give in to impatience. There could be a larger workload, more daily activities, or a greater need for activity incorporated into your daily routines. Today, the Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart — another sign that you’re ready to take care of business. In the weeks ahead, you’ll pour more energy into work, organization, fitness, nutrition, research, or self-care programs. Today and tomorrow, there can be a strong reminder of your responsibilities that stops you in your tracks or slows you down.
LibraMars begins its transit of your romance and creativity sector today, dear Libra, bringing more energy and dynamism to your leisure time, hobbies, and pleasures. The period until May 12th can be especially lively on creative, expressive, and romantic levels for you. This transit can serve as a motivator, encouraging you to pursue your desires more directly and confidently. You have more energy to pour into hobbies and recreation, or pursuing your joy, and you’re playing hard now! You might find asserting your needs or purpose is not only natural, but it also goes over well with others. Energy is with you for pursuing heartfelt activities. Mars meets Saturn tomorrow, however, and this means you can get serious about these things rather quickly before you find the time to pursue things at a comfortable pace. Once you’ve digested the lesson that slowing down is best for you just for the time being, your confidence builds.
ScorpioMars begins its transit of your sector of home and family, dear Scorpio, where it will transit for six weeks (until May 12th). This influence stimulates your desire to do something about difficult conditions or relationships, and also to fix, improve, and otherwise renovate your life from the ground up, particularly your private world. It’s a good time (although sometimes hectic time) to work from home or work on the home. There can be innovative approaches to domestic matters and projects in the home. With Mars, impatience and impulsiveness are things to look out for and keep under control. It’s important not to let anger fester, but also to release it mindfully. Some sparks can fly if that’s what it takes to resolve problems. Today, the Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, encouraging you to deal with details and small issues that will get your life into smoother working order. Today and tomorrow, there can be some frustration with a project that isn’t moving fast enough for you, but a reality check now can help you in the long run.
SagittariusMars begins its transit of your communications sector today, dear Sagittarius, encouraging you to learn and share until May 12th. Your energy and motivation levels increase for personal interests and studies, and so does your curiosity, in general. It’s a time of increased mental activity–you’ll be expressing yourself in spirited ways or taking on more projects. While you can be a little rushed at times, you are communicating with more sizzle, saying what’s on your mind and enjoying the responses you stimulate, and learning things at a rapid pace. You can be particularly focused on putting your ideas into action. This can sometimes trip you up, as you don’t always have the patience to work through all the details or wait for others to catch up to you! As Mars meets Saturn, you may be stepping on the brakes today and tomorrow. Disciplining or preserving your energy is best.
CapricornMars leaves your sign today, dear Capricorn, and moves into your resources sector for just over six weeks. While Mars in your sign in the past weeks has helped motivate you, this new cycle takes some of the pressure off. Focus turns to matters of security, including business and financial concerns. This cycle can push you to take better care of your valuables and finances, but it’s also a strong period for building confidence in your worth or value. Self-esteem issues can be handled with more self-honesty. If you feel that you’ve been undervaluing yourself or your talents, then this is the time to make things right. The less positive sides to this transit can come with impulsive moves with money or resources. Building for the future is a driving force until May 12th, and developing your talents can be a happy, productive focus.
AquariusMars moves into your sign today, dear Aquarius, and your personal plans and independence come into stronger focus. You are more assertive and forthright. Special attention to your plans and projects can be important during this cycle that lasts until May 12th. This transit can feel like a nice rush, although it can overstimulate you at times, particularly if you don’t have a goal to strive toward. It’s also a good time for learning pursuits and communications. You can be excited about your projects and personal interests, making happy connections through these things. This transit draws out the fire and dynamism in your personality. Patience may not be your strong suit, so that if you take on new challenges, it may be best that they’re not intricate tasks. This is a great time to tackle projects that you’ve let slide and direct your considerable energy into useful endeavors–you’re pursuing your goals with passion and heart. Today and tomorrow, responsibilities or roadblocks are in focus. You’re reminded to take better care of yourself, follow the rules, be thorough, and take matters step by step so that you get things right.
PiscesYour need for solitude and time to yourself increases now as Mars begins transiting your solar twelfth house today and until May 12th, dear Pisces. The need for rest and recuperation comes to the forefront, and you may need more time to sort things out and reorient yourself as a two-year energy cycle is nearing an end. Preparing for new beginnings may be more about tying up loose ends or taking some time to figure out your next step or direction. Your energy levels can be at a low, or they can fluctuate during this cycle. In general, this is a time for recharging your energy reserves or for handling matters that have been lingering and that you don’t want to take with you going forward. It’s a period for research and reflection, incubating new plans rather than going full-speed ahead with new ventures. Today, the Moon spends the day in your home and family sector — another reason to take things easy. It’s wise to take into account what you want to accomplish down the road and avoid pushing something too fast.
