AriesPeople might seek your opinion or advice on a matter today, dear Aries. The Sun and Mercury will end their transits of your sign tomorrow. Before they do, they align in Aries today, giving your voice more power and clarity. You may feel compelled to express your ideas and make an impact, or others seem to be talking about you! There could be opportunities to connect with helpful people. There may be an epiphany or culmination of a project now, and you’re able to see details you overlooked in the past. There can be an idea or project that excites and motivates you now. While it’s a time of mental renewal and increased decisiveness, watch for being too objective in situations that require more sensitivity today.
TaurusYou have a lot on your mind today, dear Taurus. The Sun and Mercury align in your soul sector, and it’s a time to verbalize or sort out a private matter. You’re inclined to analyze and process recent events or ideas, and ideas coming to you now can be highly significant. Revealing conversations or details emerging can prompt a turning point of sorts. You are better able to communicate or rationalize a matter that, before today, was difficult to express or understand. Even though you can be a little caught up in your private world, the Moon spends the day in your connected solar third house, and your curiosity is big.
GeminiToday’s transits help you see a plan or friendship with greater clarity, dear Gemini. A Mercury-Sun alignment can find you playing with emerging new ideas for long-term pursuits. Friends have something important to contribute or say right now. The full details of a plan may be born. It’s a time for feeling motivated and inspired by your dreams or visions of the future. You might arrive at a fuller understanding of a long-standing issue. You can enjoy exciting ideas through a friend, your connections, or networks. Look for friendship and expansion opportunities. You might feel more confident about speaking your mind now, but consider that it’s all too easy to communicate on a mental level, forgetting your heart as you do.
CancerMercury and the Sun come together today, helping you see career and life path goals or professional matters and responsibilities more clearly, dear Cancer. Your view is more balanced and logical, and while this perspective may not take all things into account, it’s valuable. Verbalizing your thoughts gives them life and helps you understand them better. Your powers of reasoning are mighty right now, and there can be meaningful conversations or communications occurring that help you turn a corner, at least on a mental level. You can be attracting a lot of attention or giving much attention to your goals and ambitions.
LeoIllumination can occur on a mental level today, dear Leo. Mercury and your ruler, the Sun, are about to enter a new sign, but they come together in your spirit sector before they do. Increased mental clarity is with you–it’s a good day to gain perspective. Conversations, news, and thoughts occur now that help you clear up misconceptions, ultimately helping you make definite plans. Blanks fill in, mainly related to studies, personal interests, publishing, or a communications project. You can be excited to share your ideas or opinions. As you express yourself with more enthusiasm and faith, others are quick to catch on and tend to respond well. Excellent energy is with you for enjoying a new line of thought or a mental adventure of sorts. An important piece of information can arrive that completes a picture. It’s helpful to keep in mind that while conversations can be interesting right now, an emotional or sensitive element is likely missing.
VirgoYou might solve a mystery or problem today, dear Virgo, and it’s satisfying. The Sun and Mercury come together in your solar eighth house just before they both move on, and you’re likely to discover new information about an intimate relationship or financial issue. If you need to sort out a complicated matter, this is an excellent time to do so. It’s not so much a time for deep connections as it’s suitable for looking at deeper issues with more objectivity and reason. In fact, detaching yourself just enough from emotions can be beneficial from time to time. You can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter. You’re mentally sharp, seeing details you may have missed or that weren’t available in the past. An important conversation or observation may occur now.
LibraYour mind is busy processing, sorting, and organizing your thoughts and ideas today, dear Libra, and interactions or conversations with someone can help jumpstart important thinking. Mercury and the Sun align in the sign opposite yours today, and mental energy is intense and in the spotlight. Relationships themselves can be the primary topic of discussion. Some emotional detachment can be quite helpful at the moment. Conversations happen that may not engage your emotions, but that can be very constructive. There may be new clarity or a turning point in a relationship, and it’s a good time to let others take the lead in conversations. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, keeping you on your toes about long-term goals and responsibilities.
ScorpioA work or health matter may gain traction or clarity today, dear Scorpio, as the Sun and Mercury align in your solar sixth house. You’re inclined to do a lot of reasoning things out and attending to details now. Details tend to serve you well today as you remember important things or fill in some blanks. You’re in great shape for making plans and lists, editing, refining, and talking things through. Work, chores, or daily routines can keep you unusually busy, and you might make a significant discovery in the process. Articulating your ideas can frame them in such a way that you see things more clearly. It’s best to keep in mind that communication issues tend to dominate, temporarily taking a back seat to intuition and emotion.
SagittariusYou can find yourself highly engaged on a mental level today, dear Sagittarius. You are articulate and possibly dramatic, and you might enjoy entertaining others with your conversation. Or, today’s Sun-Mercury alignment can help you gain some clarity about creative projects, a relationship, course, or a hobby. You’re taking more pride in your work, ideas, and beliefs today, and others are taking note! Creative projects could reach a turning point, or there can be a romantic revelation. Observations made now are likely to be significant, and assessing recent ideas can be beneficial.
CapricornThis can be a time of meaningful conversations or plans regarding domestic matters, dear Capricorn, with the Sun and Mercury aligning in your solar fourth house. Things may be coming together on the home front or regarding living conditions, and ideas can blossom. Mental activity is strong–you can be making plans, solving problems, and handling details. Significant ideas, news, or conversations can be part of your day, even if you don’t yet know their value! You’re interested in making improvements and arriving at better decisions.
AquariusThis can be a mentally busy time, although there are several hints that life is becoming a little quieter and more comfortable for you, dear Aquarius. It would help to pay particular attention to details, news, and ideas presented around you with the Sun and Mercury joining forces in your communications sector. A significant idea or project can blossom. Transits help you sort things out and solve problems. Wonderful things can result from conversations you engage in today. Although you can be excited about presenting your case, your intuition hasn’t totally engaged, and it’s better to observe, think, and casually chat than it is to lock something down. Learning is quick and easy, and new ideas can be exciting.
PiscesToday’s energies are logical and bright, dear Pisces. Money matters and practical affairs are in the spotlight with the Sun and Mercury aligning in your resources sector. New insights, ideas, and perspectives on these things can figure strongly as further details emerge. Helpful information can come your way or may already be in place — they only need to be processed, organized, and sorted. There can be a turning point or fruition of a project. Fleshing them out with specifics can turn recent ideas or possibilities into solid plans. Conversations stand out as especially helpful, informational, and logical.
