Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesPowerful transits turn your focus to putting dysfunctional projects or attitudes behind you, dear Aries. You want to free yourself from traditional approaches to business and money-making, as well as over-attachment to personal possessions, so that you can move forward more freely and authentically. Unusual or unexpected events surrounding your finances can arise. While you may want to tame impulses to spend that come on too suddenly, circumstances are pushing you into new and hopefully improved directions with money and business. Be courageous and bold while avoiding unnecessary risks. It’s a time of exciting developments involving your income, finances, valuables, talents, or assets. Transits bring a burst of energy that you should aim to use wisely and mindfully. These influences also support your appeal and visibility.
TaurusTransits today stir your courage to do something more daring, dear Taurus. This year, you’re connecting with your independence and personal courage, overcoming any existing fears of trusting your instincts or going it alone. Today, you may make connections that point you in the right direction, whether through a person, a chance meeting, information you come across, or a sudden realization. You also need to sync up with your deeper needs and feelings or loved ones today. At the same time, your need for more personal freedoms and authentic self-expression is intense. Do watch for slapdash outbursts and decisions that force an issue. Aim to be the one in charge by honoring your heart rather than reacting with your ego. If you focus on making improvements rather than grand gestures or big moves, you’ll more thoroughly enjoy your week. You may be at your most impulsive now, and it’s important not to be reactive, which is how to work towards true independence. You may get some help from a person from your past or an epiphany about a long-term dilemma.
GeminiPowerful energy is with you for attending to unresolved matters, dear Gemini, and unusual or sudden desires that likely have to do with your past can emerge. An issue or feeling you thought was behind you could erupt. Consider consequences, but if you need to break free from a bad habit or a frustrating circumstance, the electric energy with you today might give you the perfect push. Even a symbolic break is appropriate now as you’re turning over a new leaf. The trick will be to avoid sudden or rash moves! It’s a good time to actively seek new or improved ways of enjoying quiet time or moments set aside for healing and renewing your energy. You’re heading in the direction of putting problems that have been weighing you down behind you. Fortunately, you might solve a tricky situation. Impulses are strong, and desires can come on with great force, and they’re likely to do with something private or behind closed doors with twelfth house energy strong in your life right now. A friendship matter might also rev up.
CancerActivities that build and support you in the long-term capture your interest more than those that only make you happy at the moment, dear Cancer. Connections today can boost your confidence and perhaps nudge you to learn and grow through a friend or pursuit. Changes or urges can come on suddenly, especially related to friends, projects, career, and plans. Transits now can stimulate a bold new idea or plan for the future. A symptom of discontent can be a desire to do something in a big way today, but it’s best to focus on improvement rather than expansion. It’s a strong time for discovery and the motivation or courage to turn around a friendship or social situation. You may discover that to move forward more freely and happily, you have to let go of an attitude that’s kept you down. Still, watch for rash or impulsive moves. Being willing to make certain changes can bring opportunities to advance materially or emotionally.
LeoHaving a strong sense of the future and what you’d like to make of it can figure strongly today, dear Leo, motivating you further. Today’s energies are electric and dynamic, but you should avoid rash moves. Mars joins Uranus and the North Node in your solar tenth house, and the desire or need to break free from situations that restrict or limit you is hard to ignore now. Ideally, it gives you the courage to make long-overdue changes. Remember that it can be tricky to distinguish between impulse and intuition right now, so do your best to tune out distractions and get in touch with your actual needs. It can certainly be a time to rock the boat or dare to do things a little differently. Your ideas are especially innovative and progressive, but moving forward or becoming a freer spirit involves some adjustments–it’s a process! Watch for impatience, particularly if there are pressures to meet a rule or obligation.
VirgoStrong transits encourage you to step out of your comfort zone or push your usual boundaries just a little, dear Virgo, particularly related to learning new things or sharing your ideas and connecting with someone who inspires you. Learning or teaching something can figure strongly and can be most rewarding. You’re working on opening up to new experiences, and while it’s not always easy to do, you’re enjoying pushing yourself a little to explore and share more. You could feel compelled to make a stand or achieve a breakthrough. If you’ve felt confined or restricted, you’ll want to break free this week. It’s a potentially powerful time for seeing an educational path, belief system, personal interest, and mental focus or attitude differently. It’s also a time when you can feel particularly restless as you crave more life experience and freedom of movement. An impulse to explore, discover, and learn can come on strongly–you want to stretch yourself and improve. A relationship or financial matter can rev up instead. Consider what needs to change in your life to live more freely and authentically, but avoid too-quick moves today.
LibraYou may feel a strong tug toward internal change, dear Libra, and a powerful desire to take charge of your life from the inside out as Mars, Uranus, and the North Node align in your solar eighth house. You may find yourself connecting with just the right resources and tools (or courage) to help you on your path, and you have the right attitude to use these to your advantage. You might find the motivation to kick a bad habit or work towards reducing a particular dependency in your life. Impulsiveness with money, resources, or relationships can be themes, however. With this tendency kept in check, it’s an excellent time to connect with your desires. Changes or stirrings can occur with your intimate life, financial situation, or support. You might muster up the courage to make meaningful changes, but it’s important to distinguish between impulse and intuition. Reacting keeps you tied to others in uncomfortable ways while taking action puts you in charge of your life. Life seems to speed up, and tempers or rash actions are more likely than usual.
ScorpioSomeone may encourage your confidence or courage, dear Scorpio, whether directly or indirectly, and you can feel incredibly optimistic about the future. Through partnership or one-on-one, you’re likely to get closer to your goals. You could feel you’re attracting people or lessons into your life that challenge you to grow and improve. As you open your mind to new ways of interacting and connecting, new worlds seem to open to you. Right now, there can be some fireworks in a relationship, or you might enjoy a plan, mission, or increased motivation to resolve a problem once and for all. New developments in a relationship can demand new approaches. Expect the unexpected when it comes to people in your life. For example, there may be an assertion of independence or courage to make connections or suggest others taking the lead or being demanding. Your goal this week should be to make changes that help you live more authentically.
SagittariusThere are some exciting or unpredictable elements to this week, dear Sagittarius. Mars, the North Node, and Uranus align in your solar sixth house, stirring up matters related to your daily routines, health, and self-care programs. The motivation to change your chores, work, health, or habits can come on suddenly. You should probably watch for impulsiveness or flaring tempers. However, you might use this spark of energy to correct conditions that hold you back from achieving good health and habits or from more fully enjoying your daily life, including your work and chores. You might instead break through a creative block now. Unexpected changes are possible, and situations seem to demand a new or innovative approach. You might decide that delegating some of your tasks can free you up to better manage your daily affairs and keep your life organized and running smoothly.
CapricornTransits stir up energy and perhaps some unrest, dear Capricorn. It can be a time of sudden motivation to express yourself in unique ways or break free from a confining situation or label. There may be a sudden attraction or a make-or-break position. For best results, avoid taking unnecessary risks and aim to act from the heart rather than merely react or respond to changing circumstances. Rebelliousness will not likely serve you well, but making courageous changes can work out to your advantage. A powerful desire to change direction might relate to living conditions, romance, creativity, or home and family matters. Feelings, passions, and enthusiasm can help point you along paths encouraging growth and self-improvement.
AquariusPowerful transits encourage a focus on improving your home and personal life, dear Aquarius, and doing so in innovative ways. Though feelings can be unpredictable and perhaps disruptive in spots, they can also awaken the desire for change, especially in your domestic world or living conditions/arrangements, particularly if you’ve felt confined or restrained. There can be a project or your studies coming to a head, and sudden desires to change direction can be powerful, indeed. Be cautious about making massive changes if desires come on suspiciously quickly, but keep yourself open to new methods for handling old problems. There can be a breakthrough moment or turning point, and the goal is a lighter load so that you feel freer. Aim to curb the tendency to react impulsively or even immaturely. You are changing your definition of comfort, abundance, security, and pleasure.
PiscesYou can feel a strong desire or motivation to gain knowledge and improve communications today, dear Pisces. You’re attracting attention due to your specific manner of communication, ideas, and personal experience, or it’s a time to pursue a special skill. Connections with people and information further your personal growth, insight, and knowledge. Influences now bring changeful, sometimes temperamental energy, but they can also awaken a need for improvement and progress. Exciting discussions, personal interests, transportation, news, or developments with studies and learning can figure strongly. You’re more daring about expressing your independence and enterprising spirit. Consider that hasty communications can be disruptive. But with some care, this can be a time to push a matter you’ve wanted for some time. You’re detaching yourself from old or outdated habits and ways of communicating, learning, and connecting that no longer do you any favors while embracing new ideas, studies, personal interests, or communication styles. You’re retraining yourself to think and learn in improved ways, or you are an instrument of change through your ideas and connections. This week’s actions might also activate a money, ownership, respect, or income matter. Putting clutter or a weighty matter behind you can be in order.
