AriesSelf-honesty is essential today, dear Aries. You can’t control others, so work on self-control instead, especially early today when it’s hard not to dwell on problems. Fortunately, Mars and Jupiter are heading into harmony, encouraging teaming up to get something done or personal enjoyment or excitement with a friend or special project. You might move a communications project forward or feel especially enthusiastic about your current interests. You are magnetic, but you’re also very much making your luck as you take the initiative. It’s a fine time for new and enterprising ventures, as your innate pioneering personality comes to the fore.
TaurusWhile the morning can find you a little moody, dear Taurus, pay attention to gut instincts about money and business as the day advances. Helping you along today is a Mars-Jupiter influence that boosts your confidence. It’s a powerful time if you’re willing to put yourself out there with confidence. Recognition for your efforts and talents is possible now. With some creativity, you are also in the position to improve your financial status. Today is about making things happen. You are especially resourceful right now, making great use of your talents and resources. You may want to take the lead or initiative.
GeminiAlthough emotions early today can be tricky to navigate, dear Gemini, there is happier, smoother, and less complicated energy with you as the day moves forward. It can be a day for bravely moving forward and shedding some of your inhibitions. Mars and Jupiter harmonize, boosting your confidence, especially for asserting your needs more clearly, and this can be especially advantageous today. Seeking out new experiences, particularly ones that educate you, can be in focus, and self-promotional efforts can be successful. The motivation to get things done today is powerful. The Moon spends the day in your sign, animating your emotions further. While these transits bring out your independent side, it’s also a fine time to connect with someone special.
CancerEarly today, you might still need to deal with a competitive atmosphere, dear Cancer, but as the day advances, you’re likely to feel more genuinely confident–from the inside out. Your deeper relationships are strengthening, and you’re particularly resourceful now. Self-improvement endeavors are highly favored, or there can be a feel-good rush that comes from coming to someone’s aid. With Mars still in your privacy sector, look for opportunities to express yourself from behind the scenes. This can be an excellent time for intimacy or taking action on a private matter. On a different level, you might instead become aware of an untapped resource or receive positive money news.
LeoThere is certainly a tendency toward emotional extremes today, dear Leo. However, as the day advances, a broader vision emerges, and a pleasant feeling of confidence takes over. Relationship matters can thrive, and others tend to support your ideas. You can be filled with enthusiasm, thinking in big terms, and ready to capitalize on opportunities. Taking on a challenge comes naturally with Mars and Jupiter in harmony. Your confidence is natural rather than over-blown, and you’re happy to move at your own pace. It can be a time for fruitful, exciting connections.
VirgoWhile you should continue to watch for exaggeration, dear Virgo, later today, channeling restless or frustrated energy into constructive projects comes more easily and naturally. Mars and Jupiter are heading into a harmonious aspect, and things are coming together. This transit is lucky and confidence-inspiring. Your motivation to do something meaningful with your time is strong, and it’s a good time to advertise your capabilities! Your attitude towards your work and goals stands out as especially, and you’re ready to take on any challenge that comes your way.
LibraGood energy is with you for expanding your personal horizons through creative endeavors today, dear Libra, as Mars and Jupiter head toward a harmonious angle. You are commanding attention! Your powers of attraction skyrocket, and in favor now are competitive activities, exams, learning, and creative activities. You are inclined to make big plans, see things in terms of the bigger picture, and enjoy expressing your ideas and creative visions with others. You could feel particularly passionate about something or someone, and it can bring you closer to your desires.
ScorpioEarly today, there can be some up and down emotions, dear Scorpio. The good news is that you might learn a little more about what you really want. As the day advances, you can feel incredibly motivated to improve your life with people in your corner. There can be strong opportunities for expanding your family, personal, or domestic experiences. Expanding contact, strengthening ties, and finding peace with your past can be in focus as Mars harmonizes with Jupiter. The themes are improvement and growth. There can be good money or real estate/family news, or you could feel more empowered, optimistic, and hopeful about an intimate or family matter. You have a strong desire to be productive, and you’re ready to take on a challenge or grab an opportunity. Knowing your heart is the major key to your confidence right now.
SagittariusWhile feelings are tricky early today, dear Sagittarius, your vision is clearer going forward. As the day advances, the energy of an impending Mars-Jupiter trine aspect increases your confidence for making improvements. Your good cheer and optimism can help strengthen a close relationship. Activities with a partner can be satisfying, or pairing up can be particularly productive. There can be substantial social opportunities, or the power of your words is exceptionally strong. Negotiations can be very successful now. This is a potentially powerful time for relationships, personal appeal, and pursuing your desires.
CapricornThere can be leftover feelings to digest early today, dear Capricorn, but while you can get off to a rocky start, the day should shape up quite energetically. You can benefit from a panoramic and far-sighted vision as Mars and Jupiter approach harmony. You can be in good shape for an opportunity related to work or finances or putting your skills into action. Ambition increases in comfortable ways, and you’re more willing to put ideas into motion or take action on important matters to overcome obstacles. Your motivation to improve or bring more abundance to your life is marked today. This is a good time to work on projects that have long-term appeal or seek a raise. It’s also a powerful time for activities that promote physical and emotional healing.
AquariusWhile the day can begin a little groggily, dear Aquarius, the day advances with more enthusiasm and clarity. Later today, your charm is hearty, and your ability to gain others’ confidence is powerful. It’s a good time to think big, share your affections liberally, and bask in the glow of positive feedback. At the same time, you’re interested in making things happen, not rest on your laurels. A Mars-Jupiter influence can promote a good feeling of abundance and a sense that you’re getting your life in order. Romantic attention is likely, and you’re more confident, direct, and focused. Opportunities to expand your horizons, perhaps through learning, can present themselves.
PiscesEarly today, it can be all too easy to dwell on problem areas, dear Pisces. As the day advances, you feel luckier, less wound up, and more supported. Mars and Jupiter head into harmony, boosting your confidence, faith in your instincts, and spontaneity. Taking action on a private or domestic matter can be very fruitful and satisfying under the influence of this lucky, enterprising aspect. You might choose to focus your energy on a pet project or something truly worth pursuing. There can be a significant discovery of a resource you never knew you had.
