AriesYou can be feeling particularly confident and optimistic, dear Aries, although your feelings are complicated as the day advances. The Sun in your sign harmonizes with Jupiter, but it’s also heading into discord with Pluto. Networking, sharing, connecting, and group activities can reap some rewards. Instead, you can feel reinvigorated through launching new projects, idea creation, and goal-setting. These affairs can be particularly successful today. Gaining someone’s trust or clearing the air not only feels good, but it can also open doors for you. Take the time to do little favors for others that boost their spirits. Tensions with pressures to perform or from work or competition can rise later today. It’s best to identify these things and avoid letting worries take over.
TaurusYou can fill up with quiet confidence today, dear Taurus, which comes from a spirit of openness, hope, and tolerance. You’re likely to feel that you’re heading in the right direction. Jupiter in your career and reputation sector harmonizes with the Sun in your privacy sector today, and you can be feeling good about the impression you’re making and the work you’re doing. You may very well benefit from some time alone to get things done. Financial and career matters can be moving forward or getting the okay, or projects are coming together nicely. Following your higher values or guiding principles feels good, and you’re glowing in your work or through your responsibilities. We’re heading toward a Sun-Pluto square, and buried frustrations or fears can disrupt the flow and affect your mood as the day advances. You would be wise to deal with matters that you’ve left unfinished so that guilt doesn’t get in the way of healthy living. Philosophical disagreements can escalate quickly! Watch for holding on too tightly to your beliefs and customs if they’re only causing frustration. Take the time to center yourself, and think up better ways to deal with irritating situations, as these things will serve your interests not only today but down the road.
GeminiIt’s a good day to open your mind to possibilities, dear Gemini, as there can be some excellent opportunities to enjoy yourself. You could be drawing up new and exciting plans, and conversations can be lively and helpful. Mind-expanding activities can emerge. Comfort and ease with others can help you bond. Long-term goals excite and motivate you. There can be positive word or forward movement with learning or publishing. Figuring strongly now are good humor and feelings. As the day advances, there can be some tension that’s most likely about power and control. Focus on softening and moderating your impulses, even if it’s very tempting to get involved. Watch for a tendency to confuse hunches with fears since there is a tendency to be overly suspicious.
CancerThe Sun and Jupiter harmonize today, and a generous and open-minded approach to your life brings rewards, dear Cancer. You can be flattered as a friend opens up to you, or you might enjoy support coming from a hidden or unusual source. Whichever direction the support is flowing, it’s a time to enjoy a sense of camaraderie. You want to feel that you’re growing and improving now, and you seek out activities or feedback that boost you. You can be seen as a natural leader today. Work and career efforts, support from superiors, and reputation matters are in favor. At the same time, your intimate world is growing in strength and warmth. You may even find that as you set goals for yourself, a relationship improves indirectly. Still, later today, close relations and career-related matters can be heavy and loaded with a Sun-Pluto aspect in the works. Worries can undermine confident decision-making, and people can be stubborn. It can be difficult to turn the other cheek, and it can be hard to see a direct route to your goals. Consider ways to plan out your next move rather than push your agenda now when the chances of achieving your goals are small. You can work on getting your life or a relationship to a better balance as you go along.
LeoIt’s easier to spot opportunities today, dear Leo. With Jupiter in your partnership sector harmonizing with your ruler, the Sun, today can be rewarding for partnering in some manner. Relationships get a boost with your open and generous spirit. The secret today is allowing others to be themselves, and even better, acknowledging and appreciating them for their unique traits. Generosity is the key to social success right now, and being open-handed with others on a professional level can also reap the rewards. A shared experience can revitalize a relationship. Others can be integral to goals that involve learning new things, publishing, traveling, teaching, learning, or otherwise broadening your horizons. It’s a time to expand a business, idea, or relationship. As the day advances, insecurities can seem to emerge out of nowhere with a Sun-Pluto square impending. These might be delayed reactions to recent events if you’ve been working on auto-pilot and haven’t processed your feelings. Pressures to meet health and work goals may be at the root of tension, as you also want to experiment with new ideas and projects but can’t find the space for all of your pursuits now. Draw on your reserves of self-control and channel your considerable energies into something beneficial to you. Consider simplifying things if you’ve taken on too much.
VirgoIt’s a good day for seeing budding opportunities, dear Virgo. A Sun-Jupiter influence helps boost your work activities and research, and you may very well stumble upon beneficial information. You might discover that sharing something personal helps someone open up, which can be heart-warming. Or, an intimate moment opens you to new possibilities. Work matters can be especially fruitful, and you may gain some appreciation for what you do. Throwing yourself into a favorite project or activity can be most gratifying. Rewards for improving your work or relationships can be apparent as you take more pride in these things. Going the extra mile or doing the right thing is quite a buzz for you today. Still, a Sun-Pluto aspect on the horizon can point to building tensions as the day advances. There could be concerns or disagreements related to money and power dynamics, sharing, or level of intimacy. Dismissing a problem area can be hard to do. Be selective about what you allow to take center stage in your head right now. If you feel indebted to others in ways that frustrate you, or if someone seems to be relying on you without giving back, it’s best to make plans on how to manage things. Pushing for a quick solution to a complex, long-standing problem can be a lesson in frustration today.
LibraThe Sun and Jupiter harmonize with each other today, dear Libra, bringing positive and warm energy for romance and personal expression. It’s easy to find reasons to feel encouraged and confident about the future today. Friendly gestures and communications from others lift your spirits to new heights. You are feeling freer, lighter, and more forward-looking, and you are incredibly charismatic as a result. Your creative fire burns brightly and nurturing a person or project can be where you’re shining today. As the day advances, a Sun-Pluto aspect comes into play, and efforts to make peace can end up with you trying to prove yourself, which doesn’t help anyone. There can be a competitive or tense feel, but through it, seek opportunities to grow and excel. Self-awareness is helpful with difficult energies stimulating fears of losing a position, label, title, or person.
ScorpioYou might connect with others who encourage your ideas today, dear Scorpio. You might gain valuable information about work or health, and you tend to send a positive message to others about your competence and skills through your can-do attitude. Opportunities to work from home or reorganize and improve your home life may pop up now. There can be an opportunity to make life easier, either at home or work, with the Sun and lucky Jupiter forming a harmonious aspect today. Relationships with family can thrive, or you might boost your “nest” in some pleasing way, which lifts your spirits. Today’s energies might grow a little tense with a Sun-Pluto square on the horizon. You may need to work on feeling empowered by living in the here and now. If your daily affairs are getting out of your control, pressures can mount.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Jupiter transit helps you create a pleasing balance between fun and work, dear Sagittarius. Or, you might enjoy some wonderfully open and hopeful conversations, and creative ideas can come of them. Opportunities to show your more creative or romantic side emerge, and you can gain beautiful rewards if you take them. Openness and generosity can help open up new levels of understanding or generate a good feeling of growth in your relationships. Expressing yourself with power and positivity is not as straightforward later today as we move towards a Sun-Pluto transit. It’s not as easy to accept changes or let things go graciously. Money and fundamental values can be tricky topics now. Aim to be flexible and mindful of automatic responses to others or frustrating situations. Otherwise, fears of losing respect or a position can dominate.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Jupiter transit gives you a feeling of confidence about pursuing your goals, dear Capricorn. Fulfillment comes through attention to family matters and personal possessions or feelings of support derived from your closest connections. You might enjoy especially warm relations with family or loved ones, or you take great comfort in the security that comes with familiar people, things, and settings. You can feel high on the idea that you can take care of things. Your personal life or home and family matters take more priority in your life, but they could feel problematic in spots later today. Watch for a tendency to magnify or obsess over problems. Aim to move towards a greater understanding of important people in your life and your own emotions.
AquariusWith today’s Sun-Jupiter transit, your confident and optimistic approach can open up doors to you for self-expression, dear Aquarius. There can be a revealing conversation, a piece of good news, or new information coming in that inspires you. It’s a potentially excellent day for communications. Your connections can grow by leaps and bounds. Establishing trust can be successful, and there can be forward movement on a project, relationship, or study. Later today, hidden feelings of frustration or guilt can emerge and disrupt the flow until you sort them out. You could feel a little overwhelmed with things to do that prevent you from getting ahead in areas where your interests truly lie. Dwelling on problems that are beyond your control should be avoided. Aim to focus on solvable problems in the mental or mechanical world to release energy constructively.
PiscesTransits in the first half of the day encourage positivity, dear Pisces, although you can feel up and down. Today’s Sun-Jupiter transit pleasantly stirs your ambitions, particularly to get your finances or personal possessions in order. There is a spirit of openness and friendly energy in the air that inspires confidence and hopefulness. You’re in perfect shape for pursuing goals related to creating and sharing. Money matters benefit as you imagine greater possibilities and ideas–things you wouldn’t always consider on a regular day. There could be notable financial tips or money-making ideas emerging now. Alternatively, a boost in your mood gives you the sense that things will work out or improve, which leaves you feeling more fulfilled and content. Later today, some tension can build. With some self-honesty, you might uncover desires you didn’t know you had.
