Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies bring some fitfulness, dear Aries, but also the chance to help, support, and guide. The Sun in your sign magnifies your ambitions through a square aspect to Jupiter. The trick is to avoid investing too much of yourself or your hopes into ideas and feelings that may not be realistic. Enjoy yourself and celebrate, but keep things real and avoid going over the top for best results. Fortunately, a Mercury-Chiron aspect opens you up to new levels of understanding, making it an excellent time for clearing away problems or getting a better handle on them. If you’ve been getting lost in details, you’re now looking at things in a new way. You are likely to find especially satisfying channels for directing your feelings and personal energy, and you are likely to feel motivated and dedicated. You shine as you go your own way. Your interactions are progressive and revealing but also sensitive, as is often the case when we are encouraged to grow.
TaurusA part of you can be quite restless today, dear Taurus, but a plan or specific direction is not yet in the offing, so patience is necessary. Fortunately, you’re in an especially open mood, and you can use this energy to forgive and heal as you reach out to others. It feels good to follow your own path while also cooperating with others. Self-honesty can be uncomfortable but also very helpful for making changes and improvements. It’s a good day for friendships as well as work on longer-term projects, as your intuition and vision are strong. It’s also a fine time for putting a difficult problem behind you or resolving to let go of a mental burden. Mercury and Chiron aligning in your privacy sector can prompt an inventory of your feelings, a new approach to understanding a tricky situation, or the playing of a supportive role to others. You may be opening up about a personal issue, or you could be listening to someone else’s big reveal. Either way, an open mind helps.
GeminiA Sun-Jupiter aspect suggests a tendency to go overboard, dear Gemini, either with actions, statements, promises, or expectations. Keeping any or all of these things in check can make the difference now. People tend to exaggerate or blow things out of proportion in spots today. Avoid overcommitting, which can be the go-to tendency as a means to put something out of your way. You’re in good shape, however, for coming to a new understanding of a situation that has weighed on your mind. Self-honesty is important and part of this. Conversations can be revealing and especially open and interesting. There can be a sense of liberation from a problem or a past matter. Airing things out can be a tad messy, but ultimately helpful and even healing.
CancerThis can be an excellent time to learn from others and to teach something as well, dear Cancer. Your intuition enhances your business sense, and the desire to improve, grow, and learn is strong. The focus should be on positive reinforcement. Take full advantage of any opportunity that emerges from understanding yourself and your “place” in the world–you have much to gain through listening and observing. At the same time, you are likely to have something valuable and wise to offer others. You may feel that you’re turning over a new leaf when it comes to communicating more openly. When it comes to ideas, mainly related to work or business, yours are uniquely your own, and you’re not afraid to go your own way with them. A Sun-Jupiter square aspect might tempt you to want to do more than is currently possible, and you’re getting conflicting messages from your ambitions and from what others seem to want you to do. Try not to let promises made to you sway you until you get the full picture.
LeoPeople are sensitive but willing to learn today, dear Leo, and there can be a nice feeling of liberation on a mental level. Your ambitions are big today, but it can be difficult to focus it all. Be careful not to skip steps to reach a goal faster–pacing yourself can be the key to success. It’s also important to stretch your mind and open yourself to new possibilities, even if plans may need tweaking later. Becoming overwhelmed by things to do will not help you to achieve more. You are especially open to learning, improving, and growing today. Conversations can be gateways to fascinating new information and interests. There can also be a focus on settling problem–it’s a fine time to clear the air. You are naturally drawn to self-improvement efforts.
VirgoThere is some tendency for you to swing from a generous mood to a more serious frame of mind today, dear Virgo, and it can be difficult to settle. Jupiter has been encouraging you to take a risk with your heart or creativity these days, but the Sun encourages a desire for deeper bonds and connections. This struggle can come to a head today and tomorrow. Watch that you don’t take risks that are over the top, particularly with money. Still, you also benefit from a Mercury-Chiron aspect, and there can be a nice feeling of being backed and respected, which motivates you to do your best. Positive feedback is more motivating for you than negative. You can come to a new way of looking at problems, and conversations can be especially open now. At the very least, you are honest with yourself. Your instincts for research are good as you gravitate to the information you need most naturally. Topics that are typically rather sensitive or complicated can be addressed fruitfully.
LibraThe day can find you fitful in spots, dear Libra, but it’s also strong for enjoying breakthrough thinking. The Sun in your partnership sector is clashing with Jupiter in your home and family sector, and demands can come from all camps, leaving you feeling overwhelmed. Still, this is also a great time to dream up creative ways to approach your life. Mercury and Chiron come together in your partnership sector, improving conversations. Even if openness is surprising or leaves you feeling vulnerable, it has the power to redirect you and motivate you to start fresh, particularly in a relationship. An opportunity to clear up a problem with someone can emerge. Conversations can be revealing, perhaps to the point that it feels a little too much so, but ultimately helpful. Problem-solving is a theme now, as you see patterns that you may not typically see.
ScorpioTry not to move forward on a new idea too quickly, dear Scorpio, but aim to learn whatever you can today. Spreading yourself out too thin is unlikely to be good or successful for you at the moment. Areas of your life where you may have been overextending yourself are likely to relate to your daily affairs, communications, studies, and other forms of busy-work. If you’ve been putting too much pressure on yourself to do it all, it’s time to pare down a bit. Today also holds great energy for important discoveries with Mercury and Chiron about to join forces. Seeing patterns comes more easily, which helps you to put the pieces together. Work and health issues can be the focus now. You might come across new ways to heal or to improve your health. Thinking outside of the box or following your instincts with work, health, and wellness are in focus. Helping or guiding others comes naturally to you today.
SagittariusToday’s energies are revealing and help open your mind to a situation, dear Sagittarius, although you may need to combat a tendency to go over the top in some areas. If you’re investing in the wrong things, moodiness can arise. Ups and downs are possible, but it’s also a great time for seeing where you may have been overextending yourself. Respecting your limits and avoiding promises and inflated expectations can be the key to balance today. There can be cathartic release through a creative pursuit or a meaningful conversation. Communications and thoughts focus on healing and resolving problems and the bigger picture, although they can certainly get into tricky territory. You are going your own way when it comes to ideas about how to best approach matters related to romance, fun, entertainment, art, and children, and you can benefit greatly from doing so. Your openness with others helps them to open up as well.
CapricornThere continues to be some restlessness to contend with today, dear Capricorn, but also the chance to come to a better understanding of a situation. There is a tendency for us to blow an observation or matter out of proportion, leading to unnecessary stress. Optimism can trip you up right now if it blinds you to practical elements. Your confidence radiates, and it could very well attract good things to you, as long as you control the tendency to go over the top. Certainly, your need for security and safety can compete with your desire for personal freedom. Still, today is excellent for opening up your mind to a solution or understanding. Others’ openness and willingness to share their feelings can encourage you to do the same. Candid communications, particularly with people closest to you, open up doors to greater understanding, even if they’re uncomfortable at first. You can feel particularly dedicated to your loved ones or home life, and significant conversations or deep thinking and insights can occur now related to home, family, and your personal past. Resolving conflicts or solving problems can figure strongly. Seeing past patterns can help bring perspective to new projects and endeavors.
AquariusYou could be swinging from wanting some emotional space and wanting to share more of yourself today, dear Aquarius. The Sun in your communications sector is about to form a challenging square aspect to Jupiter in your privacy zone, contrasting different needs and inclinations. Try not to take on too much, particularly when it comes to serving and helping others, which you have been doing more than your fair share of recently. Get all the facts before you jump into something new or into making a promise, even to yourself! Still, today holds wonderful energies for breaking through a problem area. There can be revealing conversations that can act to open your heart. You may be supporting someone through a difficult stretch or offering helpful advice. Your words have healing power these days, and today, this can be made quite obvious to you. There can be an illuminating moment in which puzzle pieces seem to unite, and you see a matter more clearly.
PiscesYou can be feeling restless today, dear Pisces, but you can also find ways to solve problems or increase your understanding of a situation, and it’s rewarding. With the Sun in your solar second house, you’re paying special attention to the practical side of your life these days, as well as creature comforts and comfortable routines. The Sun’s clash with Jupiter suggests you could feel torn between wanting to do something different or exciting and preferring to stay put and stick with what you already know. A friend or project seems to promise more than can be delivered, or there can be a sense that things are not coming along quite as well or as quickly as you had anticipated. The answer to this is not to push yourself harder or to take on more endeavors, but to work on problem areas and make improvements. Do, however, push your imagination. You’ve had special insight into your money situation and practical goals, and now you’re looking at the same things in a new way, approaching problems from a holistic angle. You may have extra special and valuable advice to give, and you’re in a flexible and spirited mood.
