Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesActivities with others can be particularly energizing and productive today, dear Aries. You might work on building rapport with friends or a group connection today, or you may take the lead in a matter, going your own creative way but considering others’ input. As the day advances, worries about impending changes related to your career or reputation, concerns about not being on top of things, or a fear of becoming less relevant or falling behind can create tension. Aim to make a plan to strengthen areas where you feel the most vulnerable, and work on this strategy one step at a time. Watch what you say, particularly professionally or publicly, but try your best not to dwell on problem areas. Instead, aim to learn from where your mind goes now.
TaurusThere is strong energy available for new creative approaches to a work project today, dear Taurus, or you enjoy giving special attention to a significant pursuit in your life. As the day advances, a Mercury-Pluto square comes into influence, and differences in opinion or lack of understanding can frustrate you. You may feel backed into a corner or forced to make a decision, which only makes you want to dig in your heels harder. The focus can be on a private matter or an unresolved issue from your past, and it can be a real challenge to relax your mind. Do your best to detach yourself from negative thinking and perhaps even use worry to fuel efforts to fix problems.
GeminiGood energy is with you for creative problem-solving today, dear Gemini. Your desire to study or learn something new and pursue personal interests is strong. You may be excited to help people understand your point of view. However, try not to push this too hard as the day advances and a Mercury-Pluto square comes into influence. Your thinking tends to deepen, although it can take a sharp turn, and you should watch that it doesn’t cross into obsessive thinking or excessive worrying. This transit can trigger insecurities or fears, and it’s best to avoid defensiveness. Even through minor adjustments, doing something about problems is how you win. In fact, feeling a little uncomfortable or vulnerable can motivate you to strengthen areas of your life, leading to increased confidence.
CancerBusiness strategy can thrive today, dear Cancer, or you’re drawing up effective plans and solving problems quickly and expertly. If there has been inequality in a relationship, you are more likely to address this issue now. Intimate matters can also benefit from further thought, attention, or discussion. As the day advances, some feelings of discontent or discomfort can push you to make much-needed adjustments and changes. With Mercury and Pluto heading into a square aspect, conversations can be loaded, or people take things the wrong way. It can be challenging to be objective now but watch for drawing hard and fast conclusions based on today’s perceptions. What seems wrong today may be disproved tomorrow, and disruptions could also lead to breakthroughs. Best yet, you might come to a better understanding of your ambitions in the process.
LeoThere’s powerful energy for problem-solving that gets results in a partnership today, dear Leo. You can be eager to deal with inequalities or explore an exciting activity. You might thoroughly enjoy drawing up plans or strategies with a special someone. A particular venture, project, person, or idea can demand your full attention as the day advances. This can quickly turn into an obsession with Mercury and Pluto heading toward a square aspect, triggering fears and worries. It’s helpful only if you’re focusing on something worthwhile but a time-waster if you’re worrying or otherwise doing yourself damage. While your eye for detail is excellent right now, it may be at the expense of seeing the bigger picture. The facts before you and your intuition may be telling you very different stories, which challenges decision-making temporarily.
VirgoYou can find yourself in an excellent position with a work project or plan today, dear Virgo. You are confident about a direction to take or a strategy coming to mind now. Your thinking is a little bolder, and you feel quite eager and keen about taking better care of your health, routines, or chores. Problem-solving skills strengthen. As the day advances, a Mercury-Pluto influence can make it harder than usual to let something go. If you can channel this intense energy into something constructive, you’ll find you’re more focused than usual. Nevertheless, you may want to unload some mental tension. Watch for a tendency to over-manage results or situations, as this can be unnecessarily draining.
LibraYou’re likely to feel more independent and ready to express yourself openly and directly today, dear Libra. Excellent energy is with you for creative pursuits of all kinds, and your sense of harmony and balance is powerful. While you may want to focus on the positive, you might be mulling over issues and reexamining matters later today. Mercury and Pluto head toward a challenging aspect, raising fears and ambitions. Your mind may be going to darker or deeper places than usual, but the process can lead to good ideas about how to better manage your life.
ScorpioToday’s transits favor problem-solving around the home and with family or personal matters, dear Scorpio. You’re looking to bring more balance to your domestic world. Later today, Mercury heads toward a challenging aspect with Pluto, and there can be some irritability or tension due to the stress of increased demands on you. While giving something further thought is helpful, try to shake it off if you find yourself dwelling and it’s truly interfering with your day or making you angry. Alternatively, you can find a way to act upon your feelings and beliefs, even in a small way, so that you can feel you’re going somewhere with it.
SagittariusYou have more confidence in your ideas and personal interests or studies today, dear Sagittarius. You’re inclined to want to solve problems, especially mechanical and learning ones. It’s an industrious time when you approach issues courageously and directly, getting results. However, later today, a Mercury-Pluto square comes into influence, and it can bring out mental tension. If you focus on what you’re doing and what can be accomplished, this can be a good time for gaining new insight into a matter or furthering a project through research or deeper concentration. You might only need a slight change of pace to feel back on track romantically or emotionally. However, consider that communications are tricky for now.
CapricornToday can be a very productive day, dear Capricorn, and you could spend extra time nurturing a project or caring for your valuables. Making plans can be satisfying. Resentment or frustration can emerge through communications as the day advances. The same old patterns of relating that keep getting you into a frustrated or stagnant position don’t have to repeat, but it takes special effort to break the pattern. You may come across as a know-it-all at the worst possible time now. Choose your battles carefully for best results today. As well, watch for dwelling on an idea or issue to your detriment. If you use this intensity positively, you can apply yourself to fix a problem, and you might gain new insight into an important matter. If, on the other hand, you find yourself focusing on an unchangeable issue that only serves to frustrate you, which is quite likely as Mercury heads toward a square to Pluto, then do your best to pull your mind out of that spiral.
AquariusGood energy is with you for some friendly competition that stimulates you to do your best or reach higher, dear Aquarius. Self-improvement is a big theme now. As the day advances, there can be double meanings in people’s communications, which can be frustrating. Tensions and arguments are possible. Unresolved past issues can re-emerge, distracting you from priorities. They can also lead you to say the wrong things or communicate prematurely or impatiently. Watch for this, as people give more power than usual to words right now. Weeding out information that holds little value can be challenging today but necessary for a sense of peace. Keep in mind that once the dust settles, you may find that you’ve arrived at a strengthened position or come up with some great ideas and plans for improving your life. Your best bet may be to channel intense mental energy into trying to solve a problem that truly needs your attention.
PiscesYou may want to deal with a nagging problem and finally take care of it today, dear Pisces, and there is strong healing energy accessible to you. You’re unlikely to accept poor conditions for yourself now, and you are ready to take decisive action. Later today, however, you may feel communications are loaded. For example, someone may be seeking a specific answer from you and won’t accept anything else. In truth, they may be looking for validation, not advice. It’s probably not the best time for healthy, deep conversations. Still, today’s challenges or conflicts can lead to creative solutions and positive improvements and changes. For now, keep things simple. Observe and wait things out before reaching conclusions. Try not to lose too much time on trivial matters.
