Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou might want to watch for communicating something too soon or without enough thought today, dear Aries. Mercury, currently transiting your sign, forms another challenging aspect now. It’s best not to take on too many projects or commitments. Still, it’s a good time to think in bigger terms than usual if you aim to reshape and refine what you come up with now at a later date. Another influence today stimulates the need for innovation and inspiration with your business, finances, creativity, and talents. It’s a time for embracing change and accepting that unpredictability can sometimes bring exciting new possibilities into your life. Your thinking is progressive and enterprising, and you’re exploring your more unique qualities and talents. The sudden desire for a fancy new item or for new technology in your everyday life that changes your methods or mood is possible. You might instead want to unburden yourself of excess possessions or clutter.
TaurusThe Sun and Uranus are coming together in your sign, dear Taurus, and this brings strong personal energy into your world. Your initiative, presentation, and attitude are in stronger focus. You’re doing things differently these days as you crave or need a change. You may want to break free from those things that are holding you back from growing, but you should do so mindfully right now. While you can be feeling rebellious, you put yourself in the very best position if you answer to a genuine need to make progress rather than merely react to what others are doing. Your individuality, uniqueness, and free spirit are all in the spotlight today. With a Mercury-Jupiter square also active, ideas can catch hold quickly, and enthusiasm can take off. However, disagreements can grow just as well. As long as you keep things fun and light without excessive expectations, then this is a fine time to consider new possibilities.
GeminiTransits today shine a light on what inspires and excites you, dear Gemini, and these things may surprise you. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you might grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness today, and this is a sign to pay special attention! Consider that a private matter might open the doors to a healing process or a new beginning. There can be coincidences or impromptu connections, and these can change your entire focus. You should probably watch for going overboard with money, relationships, projects, and promises, in general. However, the day’s energies also challenge you to think in bigger terms than usual. Dream, but don’t invest your heart, money, or energy into something brand new just yet. There can be imbalances between what you want from someone and what they want from you, but consider that this may be temporary, and that patience will serve you best now.
CancerYour sense of community, partnerships, negotiations and agreements, and friendships are in focus now, dear Cancer, with the Sun and Uranus coming together in your social sector. You could be broadening your horizons through networking. Existing relationships can rejuvenate with special attention. You may be exploring new labels or connecting in new ways. Some upsets or disruptions are possible if you’ve been too attached for your own good. There can be some excitement or surprises now, and there’s fresh energy with you for new ideas and insights. You might see an association or project in an entirely different light. Mercury is at the top of your chart, and you’re likely to attract more attention than usual for what you communicate. As Mercury forms a square to Jupiter, there can be a disconnect with someone about your long-term plans. While you should address this at some point, try not to put too much weight into it for now. It may very well be coming off as more difficult than it will be. However, do look for opportunities to free yourself from attitudes that have been limiting your progress or success.
LeoThe Sun aligns with Uranus, dear Leo, which can bring a breath of fresh air to matters related to your life path, career, or reputation. There may be some incentives or benefits for your accomplishments. It’s a fine time to intuit your possible next step. Minor disruptions or unexpected changes this week can lead you in new directions later. You might crave a fresh start or increased freedom. You are slightly more detached than usual when it comes to your work and reputation, and this can lead to bolder or at least interesting choices. Your reputation may be going through changes, and as a result, you’re doing things a little differently. It’s important to remind yourself of the need to change along with changing times rather than resist those things that help you grow and improve. A Mercury-Jupiter square can lead to misjudgments or speaking, judging, and concluding too quickly. Even so, their conflict can stir up some incredible enthusiasm and good ideas, even if these may need some refinement at a later date. You can be defending your beliefs, which is energizing but might also lead to moodiness if others are listening only to themselves!
VirgoThis can be a time when you’re taking on new and perhaps unusual or very different interests, dear Virgo, and it’s exciting. Events that occur now can be catalysts for exploring new ideas, perspectives, and beliefs. Educational plans might shift, or a work or health interest is in strong focus. A mind-opening experience can occur, and you can feel inspired by branching out and exploring different notions. Your enthusiasm can attract positive attention from others, or your unique ideas, approach, or guidance can be in the spotlight. A new worldview is forming for you, and this week’s energies can pull it together. For the most part, you’re in a positive and enthusiastic frame of mind now. Even so, moodiness is possible with a Mercury-Jupiter square, also influencing the day, tempting you to jump to conclusions. You might make big promises to make someone happy, which you should avoid. Instead, open your mind to possibilities and reserve judgment for later. Creative activities fare beautifully.
LibraThis is a time when feelings and urges awaken in you, dear Libra, and you can feel quite compelled to make long-lasting changes. You can have a deep eagerness to make profound lifestyle changes. Or, you might experience a wake-up call or unexpected event that stimulates the need to change your dependencies or your approach, particularly to people in your life and with money matters. If you’ve been feeling at the mercy of others in some manner, this is a time you’ll want to break free. It’s an excellent time to overturn expectations and perhaps break some of your usual routines so that you can grow and thrive. It’s a good time to detach just enough that you can make bolder decisions. Use this energy for a boost of courage to make a change that’s meaningful to you. There can be some restlessness stirred today, however, and this can lead to interesting mental explorations. Toning things down can be useful if you find yourself becoming overly excited over a belief or idea that didn’t mean much to you before today. Attention to a partnership may seem to interfere with efforts to settle in or pay extra attention to family. It can be quite challenging to agree with others on your next step.
ScorpioSomeone might bring surprises into your life today, dear Scorpio, or you may get in sudden touch with new or revised relationship needs. You may have a hard time accepting rules and limitations, or you could find that a partner or special friend is rebelling against you. Unpredictability may be disorienting, but it can also lead to a new understanding of what you need from others and what you’re capable of on your own. Alternatively, through someone else’s input or unreliability, you may arrive at an interesting new perspective. Old ways of relating to others are falling to the side, paving the way for exciting breakthroughs. Different and unique ways to approach people in your life emerge, and they’re likely to arise from new responsibilities in the work and home. While there is some tendency to misjudge a situation today, mental restlessness may also lead to exciting discoveries. Your mind can be doing some interesting exercises now, and while some of it may lead to nothing, at the very least, you’re considering ideas you may not think up on another day and having some fun with it. Do watch for having too many balls in the air now, or for taking on more than you can handle.
SagittariusMercury connects with Jupiter and the Sun to Uranus today, dear Sagittarius, and new ideas and urges can be in focus. While there’s some tendency to go overboard, it’s a fine time to turn on to new interests. You’re open to others, and they to you. Keeping in mind that it’s way too easy to jump to conclusions today, you can enjoy the positivity and have some fun with conversations and thoughts. Be patient about putting exciting new plans into action. With the Sun and Uranus aligning in your solar sixth house, it’s a time that brings new energy for work, chores, daily routines, and wellness efforts. Increasingly, you require a fresh or different approach to how you handle routines and manage your health. Changes in plans today can lead you on the path to the discovery of new methods to improve important systems in your life. If you’ve been stifled or confined, you’ll be seeking a fresh approach now.
CapricornTransits today can stir a sense of rejuvenation and spirited energy, dear Capricorn. Signs point to the need for you to detach yourself a little from areas of over-control, worry, or drain. You might recognize the need to change, grow, and improve. Disruptions, detours, and excitement now can be related to your loves, passions, hobbies, and feelings. You may want to create something new or do something different and novel. It’s much better to identify where change is necessary for your life than it is to resist change and block things up further. You might stand out for your unique creations or personality, or a need awakens to express yourself in unique ways. Opportunities will begin to open up as you breathe fresh life into your projects and relationships. You’re ready to latch onto exciting new ideas today, and you could be quite enthusiastic about them. Plans are in the hatching stage but still very much worth your attention. Good practice is to remind yourself of your usual limits but to keep your mind open.
AquariusThis is a time when life at home or your personal life needs a brand new approach, dear Aquarius, with the Sun and Uranus aligned in your solar fourth house. The desire to grow, improve, and change can be intense today, or changes seem to be coming your way, and adjustments are necessary. The directions you take can be rewarding as you adjust and change, perhaps even leading to some nice opportunities. Disruptions to routines may be needed for your life to move forward. Falling back on the same old conditioned approaches in relationships or habits will only frustrate you today, so aim to make progress with a new style or plan. This way, you may be breaking out of the mold that others have created for you. Mental restlessness is likely now, but it also encourages you to stretch your mind. Your trust that others understand you may be too optimistic and can lead to miscommunications, or jumping to conclusions can lead to the same. It’s not the time to divulge sensitive information. However, it’s a fine time for discovery, particularly along mental or intellectual lines.
PiscesThis is a good time for friendships, communications, work, health, and group connections, dear Pisces. New interests or channels for communicating are changing your perspective. Your ideas, advice, or guidance might stand out as particularly unique and perhaps in demand as the Sun and Uranus align in your communications sector. Something can inspire you to branch out with your interests or studies now as you awaken to a new way of thinking and expressing yourself. Consider that if you can’t rely on the usual channels for expressing yourself, this helps you answer your inner rhythms and respond to your intuition more often. Also active now is a Mercury-Jupiter square that can certainly lead us to jump to conclusions or to make hasty decisions. Keeping this in mind, you can nevertheless enjoy some mental stretching and exercising. Optimism can lead you to take on more than you can reasonably handle, but if you defer promises or commitments, you can come up with some bright ideas. Aim to tune into positive energy.
