Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The day seems to challenge you to break out of a rut or a pattern that’s preventing you from growing, dear Aries. Be as mindful as possible, for if you act out without self-awareness, you may be taking risks, overpaying, or jumping into (or leaving) something too quickly. Alternatively, uncertainty about your income or security can interfere with your work or health goals today. A Sun-Jupiter square can magnify underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with the status quo. Or, you could feel overwhelmed with possibilities today so that you don’t know where to put your energies. When this happens, it’s a good idea to start with a small task and then work your way up to bigger ones. Avoid the trap of overdoing something since it will only serve to aggravate a problem. You may be seeing problems in your plans and feel temporarily deflated as a result. Part of you wants to go out and conquer the world, but without a solid plan, you could be feeling unsatisfied. Besides, you know that even if you did branch out, your work or tasks would be waiting for you when you got back. Explore your feelings, but perhaps wait to act on them when there is steadier energy.
You’re a little more rebellious, restless, and curious than usual today, dear Taurus. Resist the urge to rebel or react impulsively if things are not going the ways you expected them to. Honor your need for a change of scene, then come back fresh. Getting rid of extras and distractions so that you can get a sense of your priorities makes the most sense today. There are times when your inner rebel gets in the way of the calm and peace that you seek, and today, this can be the case. Problems tend to come from overblown expectations. Your eyes are open to areas of life that need improvement, and your best bet will be to get excited about making improvements. Tomorrow’s energies are powerful for regaining your focus.
Part of you wants to break free from confining patterns and secrets, dear Gemini. Even so, you’re not confident how to do so just yet, and the result can be restlessness. Consider that changes in schedule or routes may lead to new and exciting connections, but avoid creating more problems for yourself by doing too much. Your expectations can leave you feeling vulnerable to mood swings if you’ve set the bar too high. Listen to what others are saying, but stay centered enough to communicate with your feelings. While people are prone to exaggeration right now, whatever they’re experiencing seems real to them. Even so, it’s best not to rely on someone’s promises. With your instincts telling you one thing and people in your life telling you another, decision making can be difficult today. It may be better to take things easy.
You could be feeling a little scattered or impatient at times today, dear Cancer. Watch for an inclination to act from a place of emotion rather than reason. Still, routine seems to bring out the worst in you if it reminds you of your discontent. You may be feeling overloaded if you’ve taken on too much and it’s now catching up with you. It may not be the most productive of times, but stirrings you feel now may prompt you to make essential changes. As well, if you aim to keep your sense of humor and draw on your common sense, it can be a strong day for gaining a good understanding of your needs. The Moon moves into your partnership sector for a couple of days, and this brings out your social side.
There may be an air of discontent today, dear Leo. If you’re frustrated about not having a clear goal or path, you might consider focusing on smaller tasks for now. The Moon heads into your work and health sector for a couple of days, and doing something to help you feel better about your routines can be welcome. If you’re feeling on edge, however, you’re inclined to indulge or take on too much. Instincts for financial matters may be out of step, making it a good idea to postpone big purchases. The temptation to borrow from the future is high. It would be wise to avoid overstating or committing now. Feelings are strong related to love and money, as well as values and self-worth. If people are not taking you seriously, you’re likely to take it personally. It’s best not to allow yourself to be swayed by promises made right now.
The desire to expand, grow, learn, and connect is pronounced today, dear Virgo, but it may conflict with other plans. Distractions can be plenty now. It’s hard to balance what you want to do with what you feel you should do for better physical and mental health. However, it may be precisely what you should be working on right now. Reactions can lead to a confrontation of sorts, which can be positive if you’re careful with the energy. A Sun-Jupiter square does produce some restlessness, or perhaps more aptly, highlights discontent that’s already present. You may be seeking freedom from restrictions and responsibilities, and this can make some waves. A long-term plan may need adjustments or expectations reined in now. Moodiness seems to be a theme today.
It can be a challenging time of the month to discipline yourself with a Sun-Jupiter square forming, dear Libra. This aspect tends to highlight discontent, and restlessness is possible. Ideally, this leads to genuine efforts to make improvements and bring about better conditions in your life. However, consider that with emotions running high today, we may not be the best judges. Do watch for wastefulness or over-indulgence since these are classic diversions we use to make ourselves feel better when Jupiter is challenging. It’s better to take stock of what you’ve accomplished and then figure out where adjustments may be needed, or perhaps where to change course. Moderation may not be intuitive right now, but will probably serve you best. Aim to think big but when it comes to mapping plans out, be realistic with your expectations.
As the Sun and Jupiter approach a square aspect, dear Scorpio, recent excesses have a way of catching up with you. You can be in a generous mood, but perhaps a little overconfident, and overspending and even overstating can be a problem. Or, feelings of being overwhelmed can lead to some waste or lack of productivity. Expectations are high, but the desire to put forth effort is temporarily low, and this is a big mismatch. Situations with a friend may very well be loaded. It’s not a good time to count on our impressions since an inflated mood can play with our perceptions. The Moon heads into your communications sector for a few days, and the desire to branch out or feel out something different and new on a mental level is strong.
There can be some resistance or blocks experienced now, dear Sagittarius, and these may be hints that it’s probably not the best time to push forward and enforce your will just for now. Adjustments are necessary as the Sun heads toward a square to your ruler, Jupiter. Tensions can stem from impatience with rules and regulations or due to a desire to go your own way when the world seems to want something else! Missing details or overshooting can lead to errors. Try to center yourself today, as the tendency is to scatter your attention and your energies, which can work against you. The potential for going over the top runs high right now. Avoid exaggeration and arrogance. The Moon’s move out of your sign and into your resources sector this morning can help ground you.
You could be feeling a little overwhelmed at times today as many different things seem to stand in the way of doing what you want or need to do, dear Capricorn. You seem to be pulled away from your interests now. Restlessness or boredom can be at the root of mistakes or poor choices today, although they might only lead to distraction. You are more inclined than usual to go overboard helping someone or doing things for others, and then find little time to attend to the rest of your life. Aim to get in better touch with your true desires before taking action today. Making adjustments and compromises makes sense before going forward. The Moon enters your sign today, bringing more color and excitement to your emotional world.
The need to adjust your plans can become evident today, dear Aquarius, or the flaws of a venture reveal themselves. You may be feeling like taking a risk today perhaps due to a craving for more meaning or excitement in your life. However, overshooting the mark is a strong possibility just for now. It could help to prioritize or allow yourself some distance from a matter so that you can return to it refreshed and with more objectivity. Consider whether you’ve been going after something too quickly, and if expectations need some adjusting, it can help reduce the pressure. If you’ve been stretching yourself too thin, you now recognize the need to focus. Avoid taking on too much.
Restlessness can either motivate you to make improvements or lead you astray today, dear Pisces. A Sun-Jupiter square is a checkpoint of sorts as we see where we haven’t met our expectations. Try not to let impulses rule, as they are unlikely to lead you down the right path during this transit. If you can manage to avoid overdoing, you’ll conserve energy for true opportunities later on, and you’ll have an enjoyable day. You might regain enthusiasm for a project you had forgotten about. Don’t let others goad you unless you do need a push to get going! Whether to stick with tried and true methods or to try something new can be the issue now, but making hard and fast decisions should probably wait.
