Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Mars, your ruler, forms a square to Neptune, dear Aries, and this can mean you’re getting over a small hump, likely due to expectations that failed to materialize. There can be some confusion about something you hear or regarding communications, transportation, or learning now. Desires and whims can take hold, but they may be more about procrastinating than filling a deep need, so do your best to tune out distractions. Take in mind, though, that if you’ve been ignoring your needs to escape or rest, or to indulge your imagination, then this aspect may very well serve as a reminder to do so, and you might take a cue from it to fill your life more fully and seek out a better balance. As the day advances, your focus can be on creative sharing and interaction. There is a natural flow to networking, teamwork, sharing ideas, and learning. Focusing on your mental world, projects, and interests can be helpful.
There can be some ups and downs or confusion related to friends and resources today, dear Taurus, as Mars and Neptune form a square aspect. You may feel a little lacking in the areas of direction, guidance, or support. You can be tempted to assert yourself if someone is overstepping your boundaries, evasive, or absent when you need them most. Think of this aspect as a roadcheck point when you need to check in that you have all the right supplies and fuels before pushing forward with your plans. Deflated feelings are possible, but an adjusted plan may be all the better for you. As the day advances, you can benefit from a stronger sense or instincts for seeing what’s valuable and worth your time. Activities that help ground you on an emotional level fare best now.
This can be a time of a temporary dip in motivation levels, dear Gemini, as you are unsure of your ultimate destination. You don’t have to have a far-reaching goal or end game to make some progress. Set small challenges or goals and work towards them in the meantime, and eventually, the bigger picture will fill in. Watch that you’re taking actions that serve you well and avoid those things that seem to alienate others, particularly bosses, parents, or the like, or that might steer your reputation off course. Today’s Mars-Neptune square can feel deflating, but is more like a checkpoint for your expectations. If you’ve been hoping for something that’s failed to materialize, do your best to make adjustments and adapt to the new situation, as it may very well be better for you ultimately. As the day advances, pouring energy into the world rather than keeping things to yourself seems to be the most rewarding way to fill your needs. Your enthusiasm may rest very much on an idea or feeling that inspires you.
Mars in your privacy sector these days can stir up all sorts of interesting unfinished business, dear Cancer, and can stimulate a desire to put outdated matters behind you. Today, you may need to get over a bit of a hump (or slump!) as Mars clashes with Neptune, pointing to some possible dashed hopes and moodiness. The desire for something more exotic can be strong and the need for some form of escape is persistent now. Engage your more creative or spiritual needs, and do your best to avoid taking on too much until you’re truly ready for more. Expectations may need adjustment. As the day advances, you’re in a good position to connect with your deeper needs and desires. Sound energy is with you for making peace with the past and for processing and integrating recent experiences and coming up with something meaningful.
Mars and Neptune form a square today, dear Leo, and you may need to accommodate a distraction, delay, or disappointment before pushing forward. The need to escape or to enjoy a change of pace can be strong. However, if you’ve been hard on yourself energetically in recent days, you can feel a little disoriented now. For some of you, there can be confusing or bothersome boundary issues in a friendship today. As the day advances, however, you can find it most fulfilling for communicating and connecting. You’re in a better place than usual to see both sides of a situation. Sharing goals, ideas, and concepts with a partner or in a one-to-one setting can be successful.
With Mars in your ambition sector, dear Virgo, you’re in good shape for using your greatest assets for achieving or advancing your goals. However, you may need to get over a brief obstacle today, especially if you have buried anger that is coming out in fits and spurts. Try to cultivate patience, particularly if your goals are not being realized right away, and with others who are not always as quick as you! Relationship issues can distract you now, or someone may not be available when you need them. However, try not to spend too much time on this. Feeling a little deflated can ultimately pull you up to a stronger position as you readjust your priorities. As the day advances, you’re in a good place for feeling more purposeful through your work or projects. You might easily discover a great deal or you may arrive at a new business or money idea quite intuitively.
Mars in your solar ninth house finds you seeking opportunities to grow, learn, connect, and improve, dear Libra. However, with today’s Mars-Neptune clash, you may need to get over an obstacle or disappointment before the wind returns to your sails. Watch for wishful thinking that interferes with your thinking process and decision making. Consider that you may have been ignoring some of your fundamental needs and this has been gradually wearing you down. There may be the need to back something up with facts and details, but you feel too disorganized to do so. Aim to work on these problems in due time, particularly if they’re persistent ones. The day really picks up nicely, however, and it can be quite creative and expressive. Your sectors of spirit and life are emphasized and in healthy shape, boosting your enthusiasm and passion for your beliefs and ideas.
You may need to get over a temporary spell of deflated feelings today, dear Scorpio. It can be difficult to get satisfaction in relationships right now as your needs and wants seem to clash. It may be that part of you is looking for a romantic or spiritual connection, and another part is vying for a deeper, more intimate bond. This may play out with projects rather than relationships — you may not know how much to give of yourself to a particular pursuit. You’re only half in, and this is a frustrating position for most Scorpios! If you’re feeling particularly sensitive to imbalances, make it your priority to treat yourself with gentleness, and then explore the areas where you might need some more discipline. As the day advances, you’ll find it quite rewarding for connecting with your inner world or loved ones. It’s a time for paying more attention to emotional needs and support systems. Private and intimate matters may very well soar.
Mars clashes with Neptune today, dear Sagittarius, pointing to a possible bursting of your bubble that’s thankfully only temporary. In fact, it might end up increasing your ambition and motivation levels after the downs or feeling of deflation. It would make sense to visualize where you want to head before making your next move. Relationship excitement can be overstimulating for some of you, and you’re now in a position to question your feelings or energy for the drama. Family, domestic pursuits, or people in your life may be sapping you of energy, and it makes sense to catch your breath now. As the day advances, it shapes up very well for connecting and sharing or learning. You could find yourself more interested in bonding than anything, making what’s communicated far less important than the fact that you’re opening up the airways.
You may need to get over a motivation hump today, dear Capricorn, with Mars in your sector of work and health clashing with Neptune. Your goals may seem harder to reach or unclear under this influence, but it’s temporary. This effect may be the result of overdoing things or pushing yourself too hard, and taking some time to reorient yourself makes a lot of sense, or it may just be a time for a needed checkpoint as you realign your path. For best results, loosen up your schedule a little to make room for creative envisioning before making your next move. As the day advances, though, you can find yourself drawn to the physical world and practical activities for filling your emotional needs. Your intuitive understanding of how to use your resources or talents to your benefit is strong.
With Mars and Neptune forming a square aspect, dear Aquarius, you may be in need of some spiritual or emotional replenishment, and while you might want to push forward with your endeavors, you should make some time for rest or reflection before doing so. Watch for desires and whims that distract you from your goals, though, as these may be a form of procrastination. Worries about business or money may also leave you feeling a little concerned about how you’ll finance your new pursuits. Despite this, the emotional tone of the day is right up your alley as it advances. Others appreciate your natural personal style.
Energy levels can dip a little in the first half of today with Mars in challenging aspect with your ruler, Neptune, dear Pisces. You might crave some guidance, a sign, or a feeling of direction, but it can be difficult to find. However, this may get you closer to your own inner guide and intuition, which can ultimately empower you. Slow down a little if you need to, but don’t hide away. Watch for procrastination in its many distracting forms. As the day advances, you can find yourself in a dreamy frame of mind that serves as a nice detour from the usual routine. Creatively speaking, your focus on memories and the past can be fertile, and daydreaming may very well be productive as long as you do so when safe and appropriate.
