Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Mars, the planet of action and your ruler, begins its transit of your solar third house today, dear Aries, heating up, energizing, and perhaps speeding up your communications, transportation, and studies until May 15th. You’re enthusiastic, ready to pour your energies into your learning pursuits, personal interests, and projects. Watch for impatience on the road and while getting around, in general, during this cycle. You may want to keep an eye out for too-speedy words. That said, this can be an excellent time for motivation to get many little jobs or a communications project done. Today, pay some attention to your need for pressure-free interactions with others, as these feed your soul and have you feeling more emotionally content. You can be feeling nice friendship vibes and kinship with people today. This is a good time for activities related to teamwork, support groups, and networking.
The energies of the day tend to support a goal-oriented approach, dear Taurus, and it can feel quite beautiful to nurse ambition without pressure or stress. You’re enjoying yourself! You have a competent air about you, and others are likely to take note, and perhaps also turn to you as an authority on a matter. Mars, the planet of drive, passion, energy, and anger, begins its transit of your solar second house today and will stick around here until mid-May. This Mars transit stimulates a stronger interest in your material needs and wants, and the courage or drive to pursue these things to match. It’s a time for focusing on what makes you feel secure as well as ways to go about achieving more comfort, familiarity, and security in your life. It’s a substantial period for working through issues related to self-esteem, and for building confidence in your value or worth. Impulsive spending is a possibility, but this can also be a time of increased ambition.
Mars enters your sign today, dear Gemini. You’ll be hosting this action-oriented planet until mid-May. During its recent journey through your privacy sector, Mars likely stimulated all sorts of discoveries about your inner world including resentments or unfinished business but didn’t always make it easy to release these things directly and straightforwardly. Now that Mars is in Gemini, you seem to have more fire and dynamism to draw upon and express. If there aren’t clear channels, you’ll make them! It’s an active and resourceful time. You’re quick to fire up. Today, your desire to explore new ideas and experience new activities is strong. While you may have struggled with some emotional reticence yesterday, today you feel freer to pursue your interests. Sharing thoughts, networking, teaching, guiding, contributing to group efforts, and publishing are all favored now. You’re feeling good about the day–and the future. Partnering and cooperating with others seem to be the keys to getting things done now, as well as to achieving a stronger feeling of inner balance.
Today, background and detail work can thrive, dear Cancer, and you’ll benefit from seeking ways to boost your projects. It can be a good day for emotional healing and bonding with loved ones, and it’s also a fine time for connecting with your desire to produce and organize. You’re likely to feel pleasantly stimulated and motivated now, with a sense that you’re naturally moving towards the things you truly love. Mars begins its transit of your soul sector today, where it will stay until mid-May when it starts its tour of your sign. The weeks ahead are strong for reflection, taking action on private matters, and recognizing previously buried frustrations that have been operating just under the surface of things. You may feel as if you’ve reached a point of overload and now need to take some time to recoup your energy. It’s a good time to process, digest, and understand. You can experience unusual but compelling attractions and desires if you’ve been out of touch.
Helping out a partner, or simply listening more intently to their wishes and needs, is favored now, dear Leo, with the Moon in your partnership sector harmonizing with Jupiter. Today’s influences encourage togetherness and perhaps running ideas by others. Your own confidence is radiated through others. You’re communicating with heart and expressing your gratefulness for the people in your life, and both of these things have great power to boost your relationships. There is joy to be found in responding to opportunities to grow emotionally now. Also now, Mars enters your social sector for a stay that lasts until May 15th, bringing smoother energy for moving your plans forward and for going after what you want. It can be a pleasantly busy period ahead when you’re in demand socially, and it can also be a period when you are especially motivated to create new long-term plans and even a new business. You can be very active with planting seeds for future projects or experimenting with your many options.
The need to bring order to your life continues today, dear Virgo, but now you have an easier time getting things done as the Moon and Jupiter form a harmonious aspect. Making things right on the home front can be in focus and quite rewarding, too. You’re just fine with others taking the lead while you work hard in the background, just for now. You’re likely to feel the satisfaction of doing something productive now, and as you do, you’re also reducing stress or clearing your head, which is a beautiful bonus. Also today, Mars heads to the top of your solar chart and will transit here until May 15th. This transit encourages your ambitions and drive to get ahead, and it also stimulates a need for action. If you’ve been sitting on your hands regarding a pursuit, this is the time to get moving. Impulsive moves and conflicts with authority may be problem areas, mind you, but it’s a fine time otherwise for tapping into your need for clear goals, gentle challenges, and exciting plans.
The Moon transits your creative sector again today, dear Libra, and you’re bringing an extra touch of magic to your work, relationships, and projects now. You’re shining for your unique qualities and talents. Information can arrive that inspires you. It’s a potentially smooth day for making contacts and connections. If there have been recent misunderstandings with people you care about, today is strong for clearing things up. Also today, Mars moves into your solar ninth house after spending some time in an incompatible sign. With this new transit, you’re sure to feel that pursuing your desires comes far more naturally. You are subtly more confident and outgoing during this cycle that lasts until the middle of May. You’re braver, more courageous, and less inhibited now. Competitive and physical activities are generally favored. Relationships require more adventure and benefit from some shared fun.
The need for resting and nesting continues today, dear Scorpio, as the Moon spends another day at the bottom of your solar chart. With the Moon in favorable aspect to Jupiter today, the chances of filling this need run high. In fact, it can be a great day for catching your breath on an emotional level. Pacing yourself makes sense now. You are especially observant and quite willing to watch and learn rather than jump into action, and this attitude can benefit you greatly. With Mars moving into your solar eighth house for a stay until May 15th, this theme is effectively extended! Mars in this area of your chart is set to bring much energy, heat, and desire to your intimate world. While this transit can bring issues of power and sharing to the surface in challenging ways, you can choose to use this time constructively, not only to resolve problem areas in your relationships but also to make plans and strategies for achieving your goals.
Today’s energies are pretty much free of obstacles or blocks, dear Sagittarius, and Jupiter in your sign connects favorably to the Moon in your communications sector, boosting your mood. Your ability to communicate your feelings openly and creatively stands out now. Your generous spirit is stimulated and tends to show itself most through your communications and ideas. Relationship repairs are favored if they’re needed, and feedback is good! A healthy expectation of success tends to attract favorable situations now. Also today, Mars moves into your partnership sector and opposing sign (Gemini) for a month and a half. The weeks ahead can be animated, energized, passionate, and sometimes problematic for close relationships. However, it’s through others that you’re learning the most about yourself during this cycle that lasts until May 15th. There can be much activity in the relationship department or your social life. Instead, this can be a time for particularly significant negotiation or counseling sessions. It’s time to balance out your life by gaining a new perspective on things.
This is a good day for focusing on the “here and now” and benefiting from this strategy, dear Capricorn. Your spirit needs some comfort and familiarity now. There is much to learn about your inner world, and you can benefit from some attention to spiritual needs. Look for ways to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt. Earthy, comforting activities are favored now. Your senses are keen for business and practical matters, too. Mars moves into your work and health sector today and will continue to transit this area of your solar chart, energizing these life departments, until May 15th. Daily life may speed up, and might at times be a little chaotic without careful management. You may be dealing with a larger workload, or this transit is about wanting to do more or increased motivation to take on projects. With energy channeled well, you can get quite a bit done in the weeks ahead. Setting your own pace, if possible, makes sense now as you tend to want to work independently and may be especially bothered by slowdowns or interference.
The Moon is again in your sign all day, dear Aquarius, encouraging you to express yourself. Its connection with Jupiter further enlivens you and stimulates your need to interact with others. Communications tend to be received well and as intended, and a spirit of cooperation around you feels right and natural to you. Emotional energy runs very high today, and this makes you more vibrant and noticeable. Mars moves into the sign of Gemini and into harmony with your sign today. This transit, lasting until May 15th, is especially favorable for romance, entertainment, personal appeal, and the pursuit of pleasure and hobbies. Mind you, there is always the possibility of raised passions, conflict, impatience, and impulsiveness with Mars, but when channeled well, it can be an enthusiastic and courageous period. Your love life may pick up the pace, or you can be pouring extra energy into heartfelt projects.
If you get the chance to take a break from doing too much, take advantage today, dear Pisces. Explore your needs for rest, reflection, and emotional renewal if it’s possible now. Answer to the need to go undercover in some way as you regenerate, process, heal, digest, and renew your emotional spirit. With the Moon in a supportive aspect to Jupiter today, you could find it easier than usual to fulfill your emotional needs. Mars enters your home and family sector today, further emphasizing the need to recharge your energy. Although the Moon’s transit lasts only until tomorrow morning, Mars will stick around in your solar fourth house until May 15th. This is an active cycle for getting things done on the homefront. Excess energy in your home and family sector can undoubtedly stir up conflict, but it can be useful for bringing problem areas out into the open. It’s a strong month and a half for taking charge of your personal life and making necessary changes.
