Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could experience a reality check of sorts in a friendship, group association, or with a long-term goal as Mars and Saturn align today, dear Aries. You may need to lay down the law or put on the brakes temporarily before moving ahead. Considering your limits is essential now. A need for maturity can emerge and is your very best bet for facing difficulties or obstacles right now. This aspect can come as a potent reminder of a rule or responsibility, or possibly an obligation to a group or friend. You may need to face the fact that one of your dreams or an ideal needs some refinement due to practical considerations. Adopt a step-by-step approach to solving a practical problem. The Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, signaling the need to reorient and center yourself.
TaurusWith Mars and Saturn aligning at the top of your solar chart, dear Taurus, you can feel the need to take charge. The details that you may have overlooked in the past emerge, or a new game plan is in order, and it’s time to adapt your expectations. A reality check ultimately puts you in a better position, but you could feel slightly overwhelmed temporarily. With pressure coming from all angles, you might decide to make a stand or dig in your heels and resist. A conservative approach in business is necessary now. You may need to lay down the law if you’re in a position of authority. Still, you can come up with efficient and workable long-term life strategies and plans at this time. It might be necessary to make some personal sacrifices to get over a hurdle–the key is to be patient. Eliminating waste in your professional life can be especially helpful now, and you may need to face reality or the viability of a project/goal to know your next step.
GeminiPacing yourself is crucial now with a meeting between Mars and Saturn today, dear Gemini. It’s a grounding, stabilizing influence that can benefit you much, but it also calls upon you to exercise some self-discipline. In other words, it gives back as long as you put in the effort. You’re in a great position to study/learn something worthwhile. With a brighter and clearer outlook, you’re in a better place to make adjustments and plans that are genuinely doable. It’s best to deal with problem areas head-on. You may have been facing reality, and now you’re in the position to put a responsibility behind you. Do your best to focus on a game plan or strategy rather than dwelling on the frustration of the moment’s obstacles. You’re putting your life into better order now, and this will ultimately be a relief. Work hard today, if possible, as much as you’d prefer to pursue your interests in a freeform manner. Tune out the distractions and put in the effort so that you can put difficult situations behind you or get over a hump.
CancerYou could be getting a push to become more organized and to take better care of yourself with Mars and Saturn meeting today, dear Cancer. This alignment has been in the works, coloring the energies of recent weeks, and it’s now time to make up for past procrastination or the glossing over of vital details. You might aim to work on sorting things out, debugging plans, attending to details, and reviewing recent life issues with maturity and realism. There may be a reality to face or hurdle to clear, and it’s best to focus your energies on problems that can be solved with a step-by-step approach. Traditional methods are likely to work best. Drama in your personal life is possible, but avoid getting caught up in a tug of war when your energy could be better utilized elsewhere. Because this alignment occurs in your intimacy sector, you may need to put some “work” into a relationship, and it’s a good idea to consider what’s best for the long-term, not just for the time being. A partner’s money or support can be a source of some stress, but it’s a good time to work on plans to make improvements.
LeoThere can be heavy energy with a partner or significant person now as Mars and Saturn meet in your opposite sign, dear Leo. Or, putting extra effort into a relationship can be in focus. Responsibilities to others can feel weighty, and someone may seem to be blocking you. The reality of a relationship or person in your life can be in focus. Be patient, mature, and responsible now for best results — these are traits that earn long-term rewards. If a relationship or project withstands pressure, this can be a time for coming up with a new and improved plan to go forward. It’s important to be fair and to meet others halfway, and if you’re getting the short end of the stick, examine whether it’s temporary or ongoing. Instead, you can put real effort into a significant practical pursuit at this time, and it’s wise to focus on the end goal rather than the frustration of the tasks at hand.
VirgoWith Mars and Saturn meeting in your work and health sector, dear Virgo, work requires more diligence and concentration than usual. Or, a roadblock or slowdown reminds you that long-term success requires pacing yourself. Look for ways to simplify so that you can move forward in the best possible direction. Putting in extra effort, following the rules, and facing realities are all important now and will lead to good things, even if you’d rather be doing something else! Facing up to facts with work and health matters helps you make solid, genuinely doable plans of action. You are increasingly more practical and, in truth, it’s a great time for solving problems, getting work done, and getting over emotional hurdles. You could be working particularly hard at improving your living or working conditions. It can be challenging to cut certain things out but satisfying to know you’re taking better care of yourself.
LibraWith Mars and Saturn joining forces today, dear Libra, there could be a reality, slowdown, or block encountered in a relationship or creative project. Enthusiasm can dip temporarily, but keep in mind that a dose of reality can support you more adequately in the future. It’s a time for drawing up solid plans and taking things one step at a time based on new, more realistic expectations. While there may be some hurdles to clear now, it can be easier to meet goals with the motivation that comes from a stronger sense that you can discipline yourself and take charge. Some seriousness is present, or necessary, in your interactions. It’s best to concern yourself less with whether you’ve made the right choices in the past and more with your current path. If things seem complicated now, take the time to digest and process rather than react too quickly. It’s a time for drawing up solid plans and taking things one step at a time based on new, more realistic information.
ScorpioWith Mars and Saturn aligning in your home and family sector, dear Scorpio, there can be a block or restriction to deal with in your personal and family life. Slowing down plans makes more sense than scrapping them, even if you experience some waning motivation. Serious energy may surround household matters now, or you may need to face reality surrounding work or housing issues. There can be hard work involved with getting a problem area handled, but while there can be some heavy hours put in, you may be actively working on improving your living conditions or home life, leading to long-term benefits. The focus now should be on strengthening and rebuilding, and you can feel good about doing your part and meeting your responsibilities.
SagittariusMars meets Saturn in your communications sector, dear Sagittarius, and news can arrive that prompts you to get serious about a matter, or conversations occur about important topics. You become aware of details that need your attention. Approach problems one at a time, and step by step for best results. It might also be a time for going all-in with a special project or learning pursuit. You have added power for actualizing your dreams, but you’re faced with the need to take responsibility, follow the rules, and put in the work. Difficulties in getting your ideas across can lead to better or improved channels for communication or transportation later. Aim to liberate yourself from unrealistic dreams since they may very well weigh you down. There are rewards in putting in a little extra work now. Tension with others is possible now, but it can also be highly motivating to make improvements.
CapricornGetting serious about finances or facing reality regarding money may figure strongly now, dear Capricorn. You can feel strongly about taking more control over your money, resources, or talents, which helps you to feel empowered. With Mars and Saturn meeting up in your resources sector, it’s a strong time for examining what you’re capable of doing to overcome obstacles and for facing financial realities. Getting rid of unrealistic dreams or expectations can be helpful now. Consider that your life will improve as you deal with the facts and avoid living in fear of what might or might not happen. Activities that enhance your feeling of being on top of things and in charge of your life are in focus. Hard work may be involved! Following the rules makes the most sense for the time being. You’re learning what’s most important to you with this transit, and that you are really quite capable of handling a challenge. Aim to expect more, but not too much, from yourself now.
AquariusBe conservative in your approach for best results now, dear Aquarius, with Mars and Saturn coming together in your sign. It’s essential to have a strong sense of what you can and cannot do, not by lowering your standards, but by getting a stronger sense of reality. 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. Bringing more realism into the picture is the key to feeling empowered now. You may need to get serious about a personal matter. You might feel as if you are left to your own resources, but you’re also likely to discover that you can hold your own. Try to simplify and focus on the practical, as this can be the start of a new and improved plan of action. Aim for self-discipline and consider the long-term benefits of an orderly and “slow and steady” approach.
PiscesWith Mars and Saturn coming into alignment today, dear Pisces, it’s wise to slow down if you’ve been overdoing, and for exercising more strategy. It’s wise to take into account what you want to accomplish down the road and avoid pushing something too fast. You may need to own up to an issue that you had previously swept under the carpet or otherwise overlooked. Or, you might need to make a personal sacrifice to help out someone else. You might feel overruled now, but you can also build quite a bit of strength from this scenario, as it can motivate you to make significant changes. The need to be patient can emerge, and self-discipline, once it kicks in, feels great. Focus on building strength and moving toward your goals in a more orderly, steady fashion. It’s also a time for acknowledging deeper needs that you may not have even known you had.
