Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars in your work and health sector can have the effect of pumping you up for getting things done these days, dear Aries, and it’s helpful. Today, however, Mars meets a grumpy Saturn, and a hurdle may seem to appear that you need to clear before pushing forward. It may be best to take a break if it’s possible. If you’re feeling a little out of step, non-competitive and undemanding activities may be better for you temporarily. It’s not easy to express yourself with confidence or smoothness under this brief transit. Make adjustments and refinements rather than concrete decisions for best results. Wait for a better climate to pursue those things most dear to your heart. It’s a good idea to be especially vigilant with contracts, health, and work matters. You’ll find that your ability to get along well with others in many ways determines the success of the day, and as it advances, you can find it far more pleasant to connect and enjoy.
TaurusThere can be some see-sawing energy or motivation today, dear Taurus. If you’re feeling some inner chaos, it’s probably better not to take on too much in the outside world. Take your time coming to conclusions, as today’s energies tend to confound or frustrate in spots. However, the adjustments you make now can lead to a stronger position. It’s patience that serves you best, as obstacles or restrictions, likely related to your responsibilities, career, or superiors, can present themselves and seemingly slow you down. Arguments entered into today tend to reach stalemates or leave very little room for growth. Sticking with what you do well can be helpful now. An awkward but minor aspect between Mars and Saturn points to slightly off confidence and, by extension, poor timing. However, as the day advances, you might come up with creative ways of achieving your goals.
GeminiThe first half of the day is less than ideal for timing, dear Gemini. The current transit of Mars in your chart encourages a focus on your personal life, attention to safety and comfort, and a desire for more familiarity and predictability. Its awkward aspect with Saturn today highlights the need to attend to outside responsibilities and your attention to boosting your skills or learning something useful. At first glance, you may not see a way to strike a compromise between the two drives. Due to this divided feeling, it may not be the best time for confident decision-making. Aim to make small changes, improvements, adjustments, and edits instead. The day flows a little better as it advances, although it remains a little lacking in flow and decisiveness.
CancerThe first half of the day is better for sticking to what you know and getting your work done than pushing your agenda, dear Cancer. It’s wise to follow the rules just for now, as we can be a little off in our judgment. A Mars-Saturn aspect cuts spontaneity and can lead to second-guessing or thinking too hard before making a move. Nevertheless, it’s not an ideal time for important interviews or launches, so that if there is some uncertainty, it’s probably better to wait for another day. Relationship challenges can interfere with productivity, or there can be problems gaining understanding. If hesitancy or doubt regarding a particular project or endeavor strikes you now, which is likely, aim to ride things out and adopt a “wait and see” attitude for the time being. You may only need a little more time to get things right. Plus, other transits today tend to encourage you to take things easy.
LeoToday’s Mars-Saturn transit tends to encourage you to slow down in one way or another, dear Leo. It may come in the form of a small “life lesson” or delay. The tendency may be to try to push something forward, but if so, you’re likely to meet with resistance or blocks. With Mars currently transiting your money and resources sector, it may relate to a particular purchase, business move, or money matter. Alternatively, someone’s disapproval or stubbornness may be the issue, blocking your next step or cutting the fun. If you’ve misjudged something in the past, it may come to light now, and an adjustment is necessary. The minor changes you make now can make all the difference later, however. As the day advances, you express your affections in unique ways, and others see you in a special light.
VirgoToday’s energies favor adjustments and refinements over bold moves, dear Virgo. Mars, in your sign, meets with Saturn via an awkward aspect today, which can break the spontaneity temporarily. Ideally, any slowdowns or delays encountered now alert you to problem areas. And, the adjustments you make as a result of these obstacles work in your favor. It’s a brief period of starts and stops (mostly stops) that lead to second-guessing plans or next moves. Try not to waste too much time on anger or resentment today–pay it some mind since it’s helpful to acknowledge, but avoid dwelling. Consider that impatience expressed now can do a bit of damage. Later today, you gravitate to objects that are especially beautiful and imaginative, and you may very well discover something inspired.
LibraWhile the Moon spends much of the day in your sign, exciting your emotions, dear Libra, energies of the first half of the day tend to favor keeping a low profile. A Mars-Saturn quincunx is a minor, somewhat annoying aspect that penalizes impatience and rewards adjustments and edits. Bold moves should wait for a better time! With Mars currently transiting your privacy sector, buried anger can emerge in unexpected ways and moments. Today, you may feel some disapproval or blocks coming from the outside if you attempt to make a move, which can frustrate you. Or, a person seems to veto your actions or ignore your wants. It may instead be about your responsibilities that get in the way of what you want to do. It’s probably best to spend more time making sense of what you want before sharing your desires or attempting to assert yourself. As the day advances, a hobby can be especially satisfying.
ScorpioA Mars-Saturn transit influencing the first half of today can point to some minor off timing, dear Scorpio, primarily due to an interrupted flow of inspiration and motivation. You can experience a strong desire to pursue social activities, which can contrast with a simultaneous need to attend to a personal matter or responsibility. If your personal or home life is getting in the way of your genuine need for diversifying, experimenting, and enjoying yourself, then this is a time for recognizing the need to balance things out. Delays or missteps encountered now can be helpful in the long run if they prompt some necessary edits, even if they’re deflating temporarily. Try to welcome a break from pushing ahead. The Moon moves into your sign later today, and you can feel as if you’re coming alive emotionally. It’s a fine time to start fresh.
SagittariusA Mars-Saturn transit influencing the first part of the day can throw a small wrench in a plan, dear Sagittarius. Or, the universe seems to point out a flaw or reality that temporarily slows you down. Ideally, it’s just about making minor adjustments and then getting things back on track. As exciting as a current project or endeavor might be, slowing down to get something right can be helpful, and this may be precisely the time to make such a save. Enthusiasm can be up and down, but the swinging will surely level out as the day advances. Keeping your head down, doing what you do best, or fulfilling your duties may be the best strategy. If personal interests are getting in the way of work, this is a time for recognizing the need for a better balance. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house, and the need to withdraw or take some time out to catch your breath tends to dominate.
CapricornWith a Mars-Saturn influence active in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, it may be best to take things easy and avoid starting all-new projects or initiatives. Overthinking things can be frustrating if you aren’t getting anywhere. You might wrestle with whether to pursue your desires or keep things practical. It’s probably best to avoid making substantial commitments and decisions, particularly related to travel, education, publishing, or legal matters. Dealing with financial realities or fear of change can be in focus now, as much as you have your sights on something new and exotic. With today’s energies, it’s best not to push too hard if you’re sensing resistance — let things unfold naturally.
AquariusA Mars-Saturn transit influencing the first half of the day is somewhat restrictive energy that helps us slow down to catch our errors, dear Aquarius. While it’s ultimately helpful, it doesn’t always feel good in the moment. Others may seem a little pushy or undisciplined now, and you prefer to keep things straightforward and responsible. Alternatively, each time you express a desire or take a course of action, you seem to meet an obstacle, or someone misunderstands you. For best results, do your best to map out your next move rather than react too quickly to limitations. Fortunately, the Moon in your adventure sector reaches out to Jupiter in your sign, and this can serve to inspire self-confidence and optimism as the day advances.
PiscesToday’s Mars-Saturn influence can serve to highlight obstacles and realities in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. This transit gives a helpful nudge to slow down if you need it. Even so, this “lesson” may seem to come as a delay or obstacle in your path, and it can be frustrating. With this transit active, it’s better to think about your next move than to make it! With Saturn in your solar twelfth house, blockages can be about focusing on past mistakes or missed opportunities. Or, guilt may emerge about your current goals, desires, or chosen course of action. Aim to discern between gut instincts and fear–you need to know your intuition to follow it. The best strategy is to work hard at what needs doing and draw upon patience. The edits you make now can save you later!
