Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Mars opposes Uranus today, dear Aries, and the temptation may be to take quick action. It can work out fine if you’re in touch with your heart, but may not be wise if you haven’t given something enough thought. Impulsiveness with finances or a relationship can figure strongly now if resentments have been building. There could be a scurry to get your financial affairs into order, and disorganization may be a deterrent. Fortunately, Venus and Jupiter come together today, promoting good feelings and optimism. Of course, this does mean you should watch for overestimating things. It can be a time of romantic possibilities with someone offering you an entirely different perspective on life. Stirrings of restlessness can motivate you to make improvements to your life, such as through a new course or adventure of sorts. A fun and healthy escape may be in the offing and can be a real refresher. You are likely to feel a little bolder about expressing your likes and loves or about pursuing your heart’s desire. For some, a legal outcome leads to more freedom, or an opportunity emerges to explore an adventure that you’ve only dreamt of in the past. Changes that put you back into the driver’s seat are imminent.
Mars opposes Uranus in your sign today, dear Taurus, and if you’ve been feeling restricted, things can reach a head. Even so, Venus and Jupiter come to an alignment now, and there can be a chance to strengthen a connection. You may find it easier to open up about a passion of yours or about a matter that you’ve been keeping under wraps. It’s a time for accepting others’ help, sharing responsibilities, and combining resources or talents to advance your goals. Money or support may come through for some or an open-hearted conversation figures strongly. Your people instincts are powerful, and you may find joy through an intimate moment or a moment of profound self-honesty. Financial dealings can be successful now, and others are responsive as the usual barriers and boundaries dissolve. While plans may not be on schedule, hearts are in the right place. Asserting your independence is your knee-jerk reaction with Uranus in your sign these days, but it’s important to avoid dramatic actions.
Mars opposes Uranus today, dear Gemini, and you can fixate on an unresolved, frustrating matter from the past. You can feel the pressure to put it behind you. People can be a little temperamental, and plans are likely unstable today. Watch for the temptation to take shortcuts that save you time now but cost in the long run. Another aspect influencing the day promotes cooperation: Venus and Jupiter align in your partnership sector. There can be distinct opportunities to win others over or to enhance a relationship. There can be mutual benefits through others, whether it’s about counseling, business, or romance. You are expressing real confidence, and you have a strong desire to move forward through forgiveness and acceptance. Set out to deal with interrupted plans or disagreements with a spirit of forgiveness and cooperation. Refuse to allow impatience to rule the day, even if the pace around you is hectic or if routines are frustrating. Avoid pushing your body too hard, but do release frustration through creative channels such as safe exercise.
People can be on a short fuse today with Mars opposite Uranus, dear Cancer, but there are also some nice opportunities to reach a happy place. If you’ve felt blocked or limited, you’ll want to break free today. While you should watch for impatience or impulsiveness, there can be a chance to put a problem behind you. Keep your wits about you, and aim to be assertive, not rebellious. Avoid short-sighted decision making. You may come across ways to improve or enjoy your daily life and happily attend to your health and wellness. Look out for impractical thinking and too-high expectations, but do watch for exciting possibilities. Good humor can be healing today. You more fully enjoy getting things done, working, helping, guiding, assisting, or being of service. You might also be feeling quite motivated to do meaningful work. Aim to live your life on your terms rather than living life in reaction to others. Feelings and desires can emerge abruptly, but you can choose to express them calmly for better results. If something is building inside you that needs a release, finding healthy ways to do so can be cleansing.
With Mars opposite Uranus today, it’s best to be mindful if taking action, dear Leo. Avoid reacting from a place of rebellion. There can be conflicts involving family or the work-family balance, or responsibilities are feeling weighty, limiting your sense of personal freedom. Still, good energy is with you for letting go of a matter that has been challenging or confining. Today’s Venus-Jupiter alignment brings good energy for expanding your horizons through creative endeavors, or for enjoying simple pleasures, romance, or pastimes. Love can be magical, and your powers of attraction are strong. It’s a good time for friendships and dating, personal magnetism, and your social life in general. You’re feeling exceptionally generous with your heart, time, happiness, or money. It’s important to know yourself to make the best of the mixed energies with you today. Aim to free yourself from things that are holding you back from success, but do so prudently. Seek out creative or productive ways to release pent-up frustrations.
Today’s Mars-Uranus opposition can serve to pull up frustrations, dear Virgo. You might get all fired up over a matter, but your outlets for expressing your anger can seem limited. Aim to be cautious while driving, working machinery, and through quick reactions, both with words and movements since impatience or short-sightedness can invite troubles. This transit may also stimulate a strong desire to put something behind you, and if approached mindfully, it can be satisfying to break free from a limitation. Another aspect active today is strong for warmth or a feeling of abundance, particularly related to your family, the comforts of home, or your personal life. There can be an opportunity to bring more love, beauty, or harmony to a relationship or your domestic world. You might receive a gift–or give yourself one–that benefits the family or home. It’s a time for emphasizing cooperation, trust, and faith. It can also be an excellent time to clear space around the home. Whether you’re going bigger or creating the illusion of more space, it feels good! Avoid making snap decisions and aim to focus on the good things in your life. Consider your needs for variety, independence, and freedom more carefully. Make room for the possibility of real breakthroughs now.
Mars and Uranus face off today, dear Libra, and this can stimulate some rather challenging and rebellious energy. There can be conflicts revolving around matters of give-and-take, and you may be in the position to defend your values or worth. If someone hasn’t been showing you respect, you may want to make a stand now. A conflict over financial or ownership issues can emerge, or you could be driven to reveal a secret and release tension that has been building. Aim to keep your cool now, even if provoked. Helping you out is a Venus-Jupiter alignment, and sharing ideas can be in pleasant focus. You can enjoy opportunities to expand your knowledge, connections, or mental interests. Good news can arrive, and conversations can be fun or heartwarming. You could feel inspired to pursue a line of study or make contact. You might enjoy new or improved means of transportation and communication. Watch for a tendency to react quickly and perhaps rebelliously. While the shock value of this might have a few desirable effects, a more mindful approach to frustrations has better odds. It’s a time to think carefully about your life and consider ways to free yourself of restrictions that are holding you back from happiness. Hearts are in the right places today, which can more than compensate for any mix-ups.
With Mars in your sign opposing Uranus this morning, dear Scorpio, you may be in reaction mode, especially if someone is trying to tell you what to do. However, it’s better to keep your head rather than impulsively act, or act out of anger. You may feel the need to make a stand. Consider that it’s always best to act from your heart. Others may seem unreliable today, or they could bring surprises that can feel unsettling at first. You could be quite ambitious about cutting out difficult situations from your life, seeking to put them behind you. With Venus and Jupiter coming together in your solar second house, however, you can enjoy a special appreciation for recent blessings, and others appreciate your talents. There can be a pleasant feeling of abundance or a stronger drive to enjoy certain freedoms or the fruit of your labor. Be open and generous with others today for best results, whether personally or professionally, as this planetary combination rewards warmth and good cheer. While you may need to contend with mixed messages or disrupted schedules, this alignment helps with the “mind over matter” attitude that’s sure to lead to good feelings. Try not to set unrealistic pressure or time limits on something that doesn’t need to be rushed, and use self-restraint for best results.
With Mars in opposition to Uranus today, dear Sagittarius, something could trigger buried anger or resentment, especially if there’s a change of plans or you’re dealing with an overloaded schedule. There can be frustration over the sheer number of things that you need to do, and a lot brewing under the surface. Still, tensions can be highly stimulating, leading somewhere productive, but if impatience takes over, then this combination can produce unnecessary stress. A Venus-Jupiter alignment in your sign is active today, however, putting you in excellent shape for personal appeal and charm. Aim to let go of negativity — it’s an excellent time to do so. Romantic attention is quite likely to come your way now. You would do well to put a past grudge behind you, as this is a good time for generous moves. You may be sharing your feelings, happiness, art, talents, and joy now–the tendency is to go big! You’re feeling especially confident about who you are and about dealing with life, in general. Fortunately, good feelings tend to override the smaller frustrations. Consider that pushing yourself beyond your limits can lead to a variety of health complaints, so do your best to consider what those limits are.
Mars opposite Uranus tends to stir up buried desires today, dear Capricorn. If you can manage to keep impatience and impulsiveness at bay, it can be a good time for discovering what you can no longer tolerate and need to put behind you. Avoid taking unnecessary risks. Passions can run high, but keep in mind that sudden urges and desires may be more about inner unrest rather than inner truth. Listening to your heart comes far easier with today’s Venus-Jupiter alignment that occurs in your sector of the past, endings, solitude, and privacy–the second time this fortunate aspect has happened this year. You might free yourself from a burden or unhealthy attachment, or there can be forgiveness and understanding that help you move on and embrace your future. With Jupiter soon entering your sign, now is the time to clear the path for new beginnings. Let restlessness push you to make positive changes and improvements, or to release adverse situations or frustrations and put them behind you. It would be wise to guard against gambling and taking risks. Be patient with yourself and others. If you need to clear the air, try to do so in the most positive way.
There may be obstacles or people standing in the way of your path to your goals now, dear Aquarius, or impatience overcomes you, and you want to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. This may be a signal to release pressure with Mars facing off with Uranus today. Frustrations this week can alert you to the need to understand yourself and your desires better. If you’ve been hotly pursuing something but aren’t honestly sure in your heart that you want it, then you’re likely to feel frustrated now. Watch for short-sighted decisions and listen to your heart instead. Frustrations can surface, but if handled well, they help clear a path for you to start over feeling fresh and less burdened. Watch, too, for rebelling against your own rules or plans! Fortunately, Venus and Jupiter meet in your social sector today, stimulating good feelings. You might connect with a spirited person or enjoy sharing good times with others. There could be a new friendship or a love interest through social networking, a friend, or a group association. Connections made now can be especially rewarding and beneficial. This can be a time of social refreshment and for detoxing from pressured situations and goals. You’re feeding your soul and reminding yourself that happiness counts!
Mars opposes Uranus today, dear Pisces, and can serve to pull up buried desires or resentments. It’s best to watch for impatience in speech and movement. If you’ve been feeling unacknowledged, your frustration with the situation can boil up today. You might have wanted to branch out, but some disorganization in your daily life or upset schedules have blocked your path. Try to avoid big shortcuts that can cost you and aim to stay within your limits. Still, if you need a push to make a change, and you’re sure it’s coming from the heart and not from ego or a whim, then this can be a time to break free. Fortunately, we also have a Venus-Jupiter alignment active now that encourages long-term vision and expands feelings and pleasures related to your career or reputation. While this can lead to some excess, if expectations are kept moderate, it’s a fine time to connect and cooperate. You can be more confident in your path or happier about where you’re headed. This influence can open up doors on professional or public levels for some of you. Interruptions to plans and schedules or a social disagreement are possible, but this aspect helps smooth ruffled feathers. Consider that freeing yourself from problems that have been weighing you down can be liberating this week.
