A need for maturity can emerge and is your very best bet for surmounting obstacles right now.

For best results now, adopt a step-by-step approach to solving a problem.
TaurusMars and Saturn come together at the top of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, and you can be in the position to take charge. The details you may have overlooked in the past emerge, or a new game plan is in order, and it’s time to adapt your expectations. A reality check ultimately puts you in a better place, but you could feel slightly overwhelmed temporarily. With pressure coming from all angles, you might be tempted to dig in your heels and resist. However, it’s a good time to pace yourself and assess your best path. A conservative approach in business is necessary now. You may need to lay down the law if you’re in a position of authority. It might be necessary to make some personal sacrifices to get over a hurdle–the key is to be patient. Eliminating waste in your professional life can be especially helpful now, and you may need to face reality or the viability of a project/goal to know your next step. Ideally, you develop efficient and workable long-term life strategies and plans. The energies of today’s meeting of Mars and Saturn have been building, and a goal that you’ve been gunning for may now seem imminent or comes to pass.
GeminiMars aligns with Saturn today, dear Gemini, and you’re facing reality or handling a responsibility. This is a time for getting over an obstacle in your life. Pacing yourself is best with this grounding, stabilizing influence. However, it also calls upon you to exercise some self-discipline. In other words, it gives back as long as you put in the effort. You’re in a great position to study or learn something worthwhile. With a clearer outlook, you get in a better place to make adjustments and plans that are genuinely doable. It’s best to deal with problem areas head-on. Do your best to focus on a game plan or strategy rather than dwelling on the frustration of the moment’s obstacles. You’re putting your life into better order now, and this will ultimately be a relief.
CancerYou could be getting a push to become more organized and take better care of yourself, dear Cancer, with Mars and Saturn meeting today. This may come as a reality check on a financial or intimate level. It’s now time to make up for past procrastination or glossing over vital details. You might aim to work on sorting things out, debugging plans, and reviewing recent life issues with maturity and realism. It’s best to focus your energies on problems you can solve with a step-by-step approach. Under this influence, traditional methods are likely to work best. Drama in your personal life is possible, but avoid getting caught up in a tug of war when you can utilize your energy in more constructive ways. Because this alignment occurs in your intimacy sector, you may need to put some work into a relationship, and it’s a good idea to consider what’s best for the long-term, not just for the time being. A partner’s money or support can be a source of some stress, but it’s a good time to work on plans to make improvements.

If a relationship or project withstands pressure, this can be a time for coming up with a new and improved plan to go forward. It’s essential to be fair and meet others halfway, and if you’re getting the short end of the stick, examine whether it’s temporary or ongoing. Instead, you can put real effort into a significant practical pursuit at this time, and it’s wise to focus on the end goal rather than the frustration of the tasks at hand.
VirgoMars and Saturn come together in your work and health sector today, dear Virgo, and duties require more attention, diligence, and concentration than usual. Instead, a roadblock or slowdown reminds you that long-term success requires pacing yourself. Look for ways to simplify so that you can move forward in the best possible direction. Putting in extra effort, following the rules, and facing realities are all important and are more likely to lead to good things, even if you’d rather be doing something else! Facing up to facts with work and health matters helps you make solid, genuinely doable plans of action. In truth, it’s a great time to solve problems, perform, and get over emotional hurdles. It can be challenging to cut certain things out but satisfying to know you’re taking better care of yourself.
LibraWith Mars and Saturn joining forces today, dear Libra, there could be a reality, slowdown, or block encountered in a relationship or creative project. While your enthusiasm might dip, it’s temporary. Keep in mind that a dose of reality can support you more adequately in the future. You’ll quickly realize it’s a good time to drop up solid plans and take things one step at a time based on new, more realistic expectations. There may be some hurdles to clear, they’re surmountable, and it can be easier to meet goals with the motivation that comes from a stronger sense that you can discipline yourself and take charge. Your interactions could be on the serious side. Aim to focus on your current path. If things seem complicated now, take the time to digest and process rather than react too quickly. If unflattering elements of a relationship emerge, take time to process things.
ScorpioMars and Saturn meet in your home and family sector today, dear Scorpio, presenting a block, responsibility, or restriction to deal with in your personal life or domestic world. You may need to face reality surrounding work or housing issues, or there can be harder work involved with handling a problem area. However, these can lead to improved living conditions or home life and long-term benefits. It’s best to focus on strengthening and rebuilding–you can feel good about doing your part and meeting your responsibilities. This transit seems to reward a step-by-step, practical approach to your life. Today’s transits also remind you of finding a better balance or gaining a more balanced perspective on your life.
SagittariusMars meets Saturn in your communications sector today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s a time of increased responsibility. Conversations occur about important topics, or you become aware of details that need special attention. It might also be a time for going all-in with a particular project or learning pursuit. You have added power for actualizing your dreams, but you face the need to take responsibility, follow the rules, and put in the work. For best results, approach problems one at a time and step by step. Challenges in getting your ideas across can lead to better or improved channels for communication or transportation later.

AquariusIt’s best to be conservative in your approach today, dear Aquarius, with Mars and Saturn coming together in your sign.

This transit reminds you to take better care of yourself, follow the rules, be thorough, and take matters step by step to get things right. Bringing more realism into the picture is the key to feeling empowered now. If you’re left to your own resources, you’re also likely to discover that you can hold your own!

PiscesMars and Saturn meet today in the sign behind yours, dear Pisces, making it wise to slow down if you’ve been overdoing things.
