Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today, a Sun-Uranus square challenges you to break out of a rut or a pattern that’s been preventing you from growing, dear Aries. Disruptions have a way of pulling up buried frustrations, and these can be highly revealing. Without self-awareness, acting out today can lead to taking unnecessary risks or jumping into or out of something far too quickly. Uncertainty about your income or security can interfere with your desire to enjoy yourself. Or, you may want to break free from old ways of doing things, but you’re unsure about going ahead and doing so. It may be best to take extra time arriving at decisions and making commitments if a whim seems to come over you suddenly. As the day advances, there is a good pocket of time in which focusing and concentrating tend to come easily. Attention to family or a practical project can relieve stress, particularly if you cut out distractions and focus on one thing at a time, one step at a time.
TaurusWhile the day holds good energy for dedicating yourself to a special project or activity, dear Taurus, you may need to watch for impulsiveness. Transits today stimulate a desire for something different, but it may not be clear where to direct your energies. Others may not be as reliable as you’d like, or they’re put off by shows of independence. You’re more rebellious, restless, and curious. Resist the urge to rebel or react abruptly, but do honor your need for a change of scene so that you can gain some emotional refreshment. Getting rid of extras and distractions so that you can get a sense of your priorities makes the most sense. There are times when your inner rebel gets in the way of the calm and peace that you seek, and today, this can be a strong tendency. Find a way to answer to your need for independence and comfort. Try to sniff out things that steer you off course. Mental focus comes more easily as the day advances.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Uranus square can produce some tension, dear Gemini. It can be disruptive, but can also make things a little more interesting. You can feel torn between playing things safe and making a change. What you say could stir up some conflict or controversy. A part of you may very well want to break free from confining patterns and secrets, and this can be at the root of impulsive communications now. On some level, it may be a way of getting something out of your system. On the bright side, changes in schedule may lead to new and exciting connections. It’s best to be open and flexible rather than rooted and resistant right now. Aim to be flexible. The Moon’s move into your spirit sector for a couple of days is likely to boost your spirits. Later today, you might be drawn to applying yourself to building a talent or business, and it can be highly satisfying. You might benefit from a focal point that can help you reduce stress.
CancerWhile today’s energies are good for paying special attention to certain healing activities, dear Cancer, there’s also some unpredictability to manage. The Sun forms a square to Uranus, leaving you feeling a bit restless, scattered, or impatient. Something that you’ve been sitting on might need releasing, and this can be a good thing. However, toning things down or choosing a time that’s right for you to do so is preferable. There can be an occurrence that prompts a defensive stand with a friend or group. You might feel limited, tied down, or restricted by someone. If you don’t recognize a need for changes in the ways you connect with others, then circumstances may seem to conspire to prove the point to you! If you’ve been feeling too attached to a person, project, or method, or if you feel similarly “owned” by someone or something, then the issue can be forced now. It’s not the best day to stick to a rigid schedule. Your patience can wear thin at times today, but you could also find the motivation to fix a problem that ultimately serves you well.
LeoThere may be an air of discontent today, dear Leo, but by the end of the day, you can learn much about yourself. You’re also in good shape to find a focal point and pour energy into something productive and healing. An unpredictable element to your long-term goals or expectations can interfere with the enjoyment of the moment in spots today with a Sun-Uranus square. Venus and Uranus are also clashing, and there can be surprises related to rules, responsibilities, and associates. You can be entertaining many different ideas, and it can be challenging to settle on any particular one. If you’re frustrated about not having a solid goal or path, you might consider focusing on small jobs with clear goals until things make more sense. Something needs to change, and it’s best if you identify what it is or the source of restlessness. Things may fall into place once given a bit of time and space. Watch for provocative, rebellious, or abrupt behavior that works against you in the meantime. Later today, you might give special attention to an issue that requires some wrapping up. The Moon’s move into your partnership sector today amps up emotions related to relationships, and it’s best to get in touch with your needs from others.
VirgoYour emotional needs today seem more demanding than they have been, dear Virgo. Your need for extra time out, psychic space, or some form of retreat is strong these days with the Sun in your privacy sector. Even so, a Sun-Uranus square can make relaxing tricky today. Uranus encourages you to expand, grow, learn, and connect, and today, this urge conflicts with (or pulls you away from) quieter, healing activities. It makes sense to confront aspects of yourself or past choices that may be blocking current success, although distractions can be plenty now. There can be an inner conflict between seeking new experiences and getting time to process recent ones. Finding a way to balance your life for improved physical and mental health would be ideal. Keep in mind that you need to refresh yourself from time to time to thrive. Later today, you can find it incredibly healing and soothing to focus on cherished dreams or friendships. The Moon moves into your work and health sector later today, and doing something to help you feel better about your routines, health, or chores can also be satisfying.
LibraA change of plans or a surprise could upset the apple cart today, dear Libra, with both the Sun and Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus. Areas where you’ve been feeling confined or limited can be extra sensitive today. Instead of rebelling against what feels like pressure to conform or to fit in, consider more constructive, moderate ways to reduce the tension or express your individuality. This way, you can make empowering choices and improvements. Changing your methods and pulling yourself out of the usual patterns can be just what you need if you feel unfulfilled. There’s no use expecting different results from the same approach. You might discover something entirely new and valuable as the result of a detour or change of schedule. You may need to wing things a little. You can also be dealing with conflicting feelings for a person or project. Opening your mind to potential disruptions seems the best strategy now. The Moon’s move into your sector of joy for a few days helps to smooth out your mood. Still, focusing on your work, responsibilities, or a long-term goal can be most rewarding and healing later today.
ScorpioThe Sun and Venus are challenged by Uranus today, dear Scorpio, and restlessness or unpredictability can figure strongly. Social or relationship matters might distract you from performing well or might even affect your reputation. It’s best to identify areas of your life that require a change or a new approach instead of falling back on the same behaviors that keep old patterns alive. You can be feeling somewhat rebellious in spots, or you’re dealing with someone’s rebellious streak, and intimacy can take a bit of a hit. Redirecting yourself and bouncing back can get interesting, and it’s best to learn from your experiences. Later today, you’re in good shape for concentrating on details and focusing your attention. Learning something special can figure strongly now. It’s a fine time for committing to self-improvement activities, studies, mind expansion, and learning. The Moon’s move into your home and family sector for a couple of days is a hint that you need to detox, relax, and look inward for answers.
SagittariusSomeone or life could catch you off guard in spots today, dear Sagittarius, with the Sun and Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus. Discovering your own pleasure seems the best way to combat unpredictability outside of yourself. Even so, at the heart of restlessness experienced today, there might be a need for a change of pace. One Uranus lesson is that if you stick too rigidly to a routine or plan, you may not learn a better method or something useful. Aim to adapt and to be flexible if there are changes in plans. Something can still test your patience as a lack of organization can get in the way of your broader plans. Resolve to be more prepared next time. If you need more independence and freedom in your work, you might look into ways to make this happen. Today, avoid rushing. Transits later today favor an intensive focus on personal interests, research, and investigation, and pouring some time into these activities can be useful and rewarding.
CapricornThere can be some feelings of being torn or divided today, dear Capricorn, with the Sun and Venus in challenging aspect to Uranus. Uranus encourages us to be willing to let go of a pattern or habit holding us back from growth so that we magnetize positive energy into our lives. These days, you’re seeking more than the ordinary from your activities and perhaps people in your life. Your approach may not express this orientation, and mixed signals can abound. Expressing your more profound needs is not very easy. While moodiness is possible today, it makes the most sense to make your own choices rather than merely react to others. It’s not easy to depend on certain others today, and even routine matters can meet with interference. Even with slightly unstable themes this week, there’s some beautiful energy for focus and balance. Someone special might motivate you to set important work or projects in motion. Conversations can readily turn to plans and strategies.
AquariusWatch for rebellious reactions today with Venus and the Sun in challenging aspects to Uranus, dear Aquarius. Resolve instead to make your own choices. Uranus in clashing aspect to your sign these days can sometimes leave you feeling that changes are forced on you, or that you’re not in charge. This can leave you feeling resistant, more often in reaction mode, and in a place where you can’t see your need for small personal changes or a change of pace. With this transit, taking steps to move out of your comfort zone is the path that empowers you. Feeling unsettled when it comes to your home life, family, or living conditions can impact a relationship today. A change of plans or schedules may temporarily throw you off balance, but it can also lead to interesting experiences. You could find it hard to satisfy an itch, especially if you’re not entirely sure of its origin. Look for something to update and improve. Helpful energy is with you later today for taking on a work or health problem. You might come up with fabulous ideas on how to best pursue a particular goal.
PiscesIf others are pushing your buttons, try to keep a cool head today, dear Pisces. With a Sun-Uranus square this morning, a change of plans, unreliability, or a shift of interests can disrupt the flow. Aim to quickly redirect yourself in the face of changes since friction can motivate you to make changes that truly benefit you. It can be a real challenge to find points of agreement temporarily, and the urge for more freedom can come on strongly. The Moon’s move into your privacy sector later today suggests some need to detox, regroup, or unwind. Talking openly and honestly about issues may be energy-draining but ultimately helpful. Business and work matters can strengthen as thinking is sharp today. You might enjoy focusing on a special project or pursuit as Mercury and Vesta head into alignment. Time spent on expressive or leisure activities can be excellent for releasing tension and for healing, and so can an in-depth discussion.
