Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Sun and Pluto in competition today, dear Aries, tension building, mainly about pressures to perform or from work or competition, can rise. It’s best to identify these things and avoid letting worries take over. You want to go your own way and connect with your wants and desires, but you could feel watched or blocked temporarily. Aim to connect with your priorities or discuss problems with someone you trust to help release the pressure. Today is especially strong for insight into others’ motives and desires, even if they are doing their best to keep these things to themselves.
TaurusThe energies of the first half of today are somewhat complicated, dear Taurus. Buried frustrations or fears can disrupt the flow and affect your mood as the Sun clashes with Pluto. Philosophical disagreements can escalate relatively quickly. Circumstances may be such that you need to let go of a tendency to hold on too tightly to your beliefs and customs if doing so causes undue frustration. Something from the past might be undermining your confidence, and this transit can push you to deal with matters that you’ve left unfinished. Otherwise, guilt gets in the way of healthy living. 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. As the day advances, negotiations, compromises, and agreements come more readily. Attraction is easy and natural.
GeminiIn the first half of the day, relations can be a little tense, dear Gemini, and tension may be more about power and control than the most apparent issues. You may be conflicted about how deep your feelings run for someone. Watch for a tendency to confuse hunches with fears since there is a tendency to be overly suspicious. Your best bet is to rise above game playing and focus on softening and moderating your impulses, even if it’s very tempting to get involved. Consider that people can be temperamental under current conditions, including you! A part of you could be attracting, or attracted to, some level of drama if you are not in touch with what you truly want. As the day advances, it’s far easier to let things be.
CancerWith a Sun-Pluto square, dear Cancer, close relations and career-related matters can be heavy and loaded in the first half of today. Worries can undermine confident decision-making, and people can be stubborn. It’s not easy to turn the other cheek, as you can feel pulled in different directions and possibly even a little pushed around mentally. An old pattern of relating can stir up trouble, and a direct route to your goals is temporarily hard to picture. Aim to avoid allowing fear or resentment to rule your behavior for best results. Concentrating on making improvements can help smooth things out. Redirecting excess energy or intensity in constructive channels may not be easy but can be rewarding. Or, consider ways to plan your next move rather than push your agenda now when the chances of achieving your goals are small. As the day advances, you can feel far less pressure. In fact, you’ll find that you’re more comfortable than usual on a personal level. Learning and sharing are also in good shape.
LeoToday’s Sun-Pluto square can put you in touch with insecurities, perhaps indirectly, dear Leo. Even so, if you’re self-aware and open to learning, you’re likely to discover hidden ambitions or desires. There can be delayed reactions to recent events if you’ve been working on auto-pilot and haven’t processed your feelings. Interpersonal tensions are possible, or you can feel on edge or under pressure with projects or situations. If you feel overloaded with duties, this can reach a problematic point. Pressures to meet health and work goals may be at the root of this, as you also want to experiment with new ideas and projects but can’t find the space for all of your pursuits now. Aim to 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. Aim to get in touch with unresolved matters to feel less weighed down. The day advances with more humor and lightness. It’s a good idea to give more of your attention to your personal life or attend to your inner world.
VirgoWith today’s Sun-Pluto square, dear Virgo, there could be concerns or disagreements related to money and power dynamics, sharing, or level of intimacy. It can be a real challenge to dismiss a problem area right now! Worries or fears of betrayal in love or friendship can surface, and it’s a good idea to resist letting them drive your behavior. 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 to bring balance to your life. Pushing for a quick solution to a complex, long-standing problem can be a lesson in frustration today. If fears in relationships are eating up too much of your time and happiness, be honest with yourself, and consider ways to make changes that empower you. As the day advances, you more readily let things flow. You might team up with someone to accomplish a goal or express your affections in unique ways and with great success.
LibraThe Moon spends much of the day in your resources sector, dear Libra, encouraging you to seek some emotional equilibrium. However, tensions are likely as the Sun and Pluto form a square in the first half of the day. It’s best to watch for automatic responses that don’t serve you well, as relationship ruts can be especially obvious now. There can be a competitive or tense feel to this transit, but through it, you can very well discover opportunities to grow and excel. Self-awareness is helpful with difficult energies stimulating fears of losing a position, label, title, or person. The desire for feedback is real, but there is a lot to sort out in your inner world, and perhaps the chance to do so is what you need most today. As the day advances, your mood improves, and things feel less complicated. You instinctively know that you only be strong for other people once you’ve discovered your own inner strength.
ScorpioWith today’s Sun-Pluto square, dear Scorpio, you might work on feeling empowered by living in the here and now. If your daily affairs are getting out of your control, pressures can mount. You are also more sensitive to imbalances of power or people who seem to have a hidden agenda. This transit can be challenging for your mood, but you can also learn much from it. Avoid overthinking situations, especially if doing so doesn’t serve you well. It’s not the best time to gain an edge and might instead be a time to turn a corner by accepting a situation and making the most of it. You may be better off observing and conserving your energy. Consider delegating some of your work, even if you know you can do a better job, if only to give yourself a break. As the day advances, it’s much easier to take a relaxed, creative approach to people and life’s circumstances. A hobby can be especially satisfying.
SagittariusThe Moon spends most of the day tucked away in the sign just behind yours, dear Sagittarius, drawing you to the background. You’re in touch with your need to recuperate your energy and process recent events and feelings. The first half of the day features a tense Sun-Pluto square that makes it difficult to accept changes or let things go graciously. Money and fundamental values can be tricky topics now. Airing a topic or concern can lead to healing, although it can be messy along the way. It’s best to avoid fixating on those things you can’t change since trying to force an issue will only lead to frustration right now. Aim to be flexible and be mindful of automatic responses to others or frustrating situations. Otherwise, fears of losing respect or a position can dominate or drive behavior today. As the day advances, it’s easier to lighten up. Strong themes of imagination, relaxation, rest, withdrawal, and reflection are with you.
CapricornYour personal life or home and family matters have been priorities in your life with the Sun in your solar fourth house this last month, dear Capricorn. Tomorrow, the Sun will move on, but today, this focus can feel problematic in spots. Watch for a tendency to magnify or obsess over problems. Consider that pushing yourself too hard and the stress that can result from this won’t help you. It may be best to avoid power plays or falling back on old, negative patterns of relating. You want to do things your way, which might cause some waves. Still, you can move towards a greater understanding of significant people in your life and your own emotions and ambitions if you pay attention. As the day advances, transits encourage reaching out or throwing yourself into projects you enjoy.
AquariusWith a Sun-Pluto square today, dear Aquarius, feelings or frustrations can erupt that need careful handling. Guilt or tension can emerge and disrupt the flow until you sort it out. You could feel a little overwhelmed with things to do that prevent you from getting ahead in areas where your interests truly lie. A sense of urgency may lead to pushing yourself too hard or clashes. You are especially sensitive to interruptions, disturbances, and difficult people, and there can be double meanings in conversations. Aim to focus on solvable problems in the mental or mechanical world to release energy constructively. This way, you give yourself time to see things objectively. Otherwise, you can learn a lot about inner rumblings and even secret ambitions. As the day advances, it becomes far easier to detach and enjoy yourself.
PiscesWith a Sun-Pluto square influencing the first half of today, dear Pisces, energies are tricky regarding respect, ownership, or methods. People can be touchy, sensitive, and defensive, and they may not readily accept help or your input. You could feel you’re moving in different directions or talking about different things. It may be better to accept that your feelings and beliefs are not necessarily going to harmonize with those of others just for now, and then try to work around that idea. However, through intense interactions, you might feel the motivation to be your best. With some self-honesty, you might uncover desires you didn’t know you had. It might also be wise to look for clues on managing your resources better. Jupiter is on the last leg of its journey through your sign, and with its harmony with the Moon today, aim to take advantage by exploring new personal interests or doing something you’ve always wanted to do but lacked the confidence.
