Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesTry to avoid blindly reaching out for more if you’re not yet in touch with the source of discontent today, dear Aries. With today’s aspects, there can be a tendency to overextend yourself. You can experience a conflict between wanting to play it safe and reaching for the stars. Your personal life and professional life seem to be pitted against one another, but it shouldn’t be about choosing. Instead, it should be about finding a balance or compromise. The tendency to overdo, overspend, and to feel overwhelmed can seem to dominate right now, but pulling back a little and reassessing what’s important to you can lead to wonderful ideas for improvement. It may be that you need to stretch or overreach before getting to a place of balance. A Mercury-Uranus trine also active today can point to excellent conversations that open your mind and free you from certain burdens and frustrations. It can enliven relationships, leading to successful new methods or ideas related to work and health. Unique and exciting elements on the job or in your daily routine can be in focus.
TaurusThere is some temptation to go over the top today, dear Taurus, but if managed, you might open up to new possibilities. Today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition can encourage you to reach higher, but perhaps to go a little too far, particularly if you’re not in touch with what you genuinely want. Watch for pinning your hopes on things that, even if you achieve them, won’t truly satisfy you. You might be seeking more meaning and fulfillment, but you’ll only get there through learning and new experiences and interests, not through overdoing, overstating, or overindulging. Remind yourself that even though temporary fixes are tempting, they won’t remedy long-standing problems. Things not going exactly to script can bring you up and down. The day’s energies are complicated but ultimately can get you closer to your heart. Overdoing something now can prevent you from continuing it later. You also have a Mercury-Uranus influence working for you now, and there can be a breakthrough idea, or a project or plan can move forward suddenly and happily. Learning a new method something about someone you care about can figure strongly.
GeminiToday’s energies stimulate optimism, dear Gemini, but also a tendency to go over the top. It may be helpful to remind yourself that something that begins too quickly is in danger of burning out fast. Try not to allow a good mood to lead to taking on more responsibilities or additional projects, since you may be overestimating things. You’re seeking more meaning or enjoyment from life, but going big is not always the way to do so. Be aware that others may be promising more than they can deliver today, or you may be overvaluing something and inclined to overindulge. If you don’t know what you want, you might pin your hopes on the wrong goals. The fewer distractions you have now, the better you’ll understand your needs. Fortunately, your thinking is innovative, and there can be illuminating conversations that open up a whole new world of possibilities. There may be a clearing of the air, or you could discover a way to put the negative elements of the past behind you.
CancerIt’s best to avoid rushing forward with incomplete plans today, dear Cancer. There is some tendency to take on more than we can reasonably manage today, making it better to keep your expectations realistic. Temporary fixes to unrest can be attractive but won’t remedy long-standing problems. A Venus-Jupiter aspect active today can push you to reach for more from your life and relationships, but going into this pursuit blind won’t lead to satisfying results. You may seek comfort and closeness, but your freedom is also important to you. There is a compromise or middle ground to work towards, even if it’s not immediately apparent. Getting in touch with what you truly desire is complicated, particularly with other aspects at play that compound matters further, but if you commit to it, it can be rewarding. Simplify and prioritize for best results. Fortunately, a Mercury-Uranus aspect active today helps you think positively and innovatively. New interests are exciting. Friends can inspire you to think creatively or might encourage you to try something new.
LeoThere can be some issues with restlessness or discontent today, dear Leo, but you can also be tempted to overdo in the process. If you recognize the signs that you’re overreaching, try to nip it in the bud as soon as possible. Greater rewards are likely if you stretch your imagination and still manage to keep your feet on the ground. Doing more for someone who is not appreciating your efforts is unlikely to improve matters. If people or projects are draining you, aim to put more of your energy into something that serves your happiness. The more content you are, the more you end up radiating warmth outwards. Getting in touch with your inner world can bring benefits now with Venus in your privacy sector. Another aspect influencing today helps you think positively. A new idea or method frees up your time or excites you. You may be entertaining ideas on practical, financial, or business levels that are breakthrough or otherwise pivotal. Keep your mind open to new information.
VirgoInner restlessness can lead to some tension today, dear Virgo, but it can also stir you to great things if you let yourself go there. Creative or romantic feelings are strong and difficult to channel or direct, however. Excess or overindulgence can be a problem if you’re looking outside yourself for happiness, meaning, and purpose. Without a plan or self-awareness today, there can be some missteps, but discontent can motivate you to make beneficial improvements. There might be a turning point or epiphany in a romantic relationship or friendship. It would be a good idea to carefully consider whether expansion will add joy or stress to your life. You can also be a little more courageous about seeking out the people and situations you value most, however. The trick is to push boundaries just enough. A Mercury-Uranus transit can lead to a greater feeling of freedom by talking or thinking things through. You’re communicating with more enthusiasm and courage. Look for new ideas and perspectives that excite and motivate you. You can be on top of discoveries with something you’re working on or studying.
LibraThere can be an epiphany or turning point related to your career or home life now, dear Libra, with Venus opposite Jupiter. Even so, it can be a time of some restlessness if you’ve taken on too much or if you’re feeling some discontent in either of these areas. Instead, you may be overdoing your attention to both your personal and professional life (or your domestic world and responsibilities to the outside world). Too much is too much, even if you’re doing things you love. Promises made now are unlikely to materialize or fulfill, so it’s best not to bank on them just for now. However, if you feel the desire for more satisfaction from your pursuits, count this as valid and make a plan, but try not to go overboard pushing for temporary fixes. Giving things a bit of time can help you gain perspective. You perform the best now if you love what you do, so that if you need to take the time to reconnect with your motivation, it’s probably wise to do so. A Mercury-Uranus influence turns your attention to positive news and ideas, leading to fun and perhaps useful discoveries. Seeing something in a more detached way can help you, and there can be a real feeling of purging or release involved with bringing something hidden to light.
ScorpioThere can be great ideas and enthusiasm today, dear Scorpio, but you may want to watch for overshooting. You have a higher than usual interest in learning, connecting, and experiencing the world around you these days, and recent excesses on these fronts can be quite apparent now. Too much is too much, even when you’re enjoying yourself! If you’re absorbing so much that you’re stressed out, this defeats the purpose of pleasurable pursuits. Urges for out-of-the-ordinary experiences can lead you to focus on material or empty pleasures rather than what you truly need. Aim to be self-aware now, and you can push yourself beyond an obstacle. However, a Mercury-Uranus influence today is excellent for collaborating, sharing ideas, and relating to others in liberating and peaceful ways. A bit of detachment can put things into perspective, particularly a relationship. People and networks can inspire new methods and ideas.
SagittariusExcitement is likely today, dear Sagittarius, although there can also be some restlessness. Reacting to discontent with extravagant moves won’t make things better. Before indulging yourself or making quick decisions, consider what’s best for your “future self.” You might also vacillate between wanting more intimacy and preferring to handle things on your own. You’re particularly sensitive to others’ moods, which can lead to personal ups and downs. Try your best to center yourself and discern which feelings are truly yours, aiming to shed those you’ve adopted as your own. Your needs and wants can be challenging to access or understand with current distractions and diversions. However, from conflict today, you can discover new methods and ideas. A Mercury-Uranus influence, also active today, is good for exploring new ideas and possibilities related to money, business, work, and health. The discovery of a new method can free up some time, or simply free your mind and help reduce some stress. With this positive energy, you’d rather think about the future than dwell on the past.
CapricornThe day’s energies are mixed, dear Capricorn, and emotions can be up and down. Spirits are high but a little unstable today with Venus in a challenging aspect to Jupiter. It’s probably best to avoid overstating or promising, as it may be better to live in the moment than to book yourself in the future. It can be a restless day until you get in touch with your actual needs, which can be a tall order today, but not impossible. Feelings, interactions, or a social event or connection can be larger than life, or there’s a tendency for a tug-of-war in a relationship, and it becomes confusing who truly wants what. Stretch yourself if you feel the desire, but know your limits to prevent snapping. Work on getting to a better place of self-awareness. Finding a compromise can help you satisfy both your adventurous and practical side. Conflicts now tend to lead to improved situations later. A Mercury-Uranus transit also active can help lift you above smaller concerns, leading you to explore creative or unique topics.
AquariusExciting ideas or topics can emerge today, dear Aquarius, although there’s a tendency to overdo that’s best managed. Today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition encourages you to reach a little higher with your work, services, or support. The key is to do so in moderation and avoid going over the top. You might recognize a feeling of being overextended, and it’s best to know your limits today. Watch for the temptation to escape or mask problems by overdoing pleasures, which is a temporary fix that only delays things and adds to feelings of guilt. Avoid investing too much in promises since we may be overestimating our capabilities. A Mercury-Uranus transit, also active today, helps you detach yourself just enough to pull you out of a funk. You might release yourself from a burden or a secret, clear the air, or talk through a problem and feel relieved or even liberated. When it comes to family and intimate relationships, focusing on the future comes more naturally than bringing up the past.
PiscesYou may be weighing the pros and cons of a situation today, dear Pisces. It may not be easy to come to a conclusion with transits that seem to magnify and divide your choices. Today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition can make it difficult to truly know what you want, but through disagreement or conflict, and perhaps some stretching of your imagination, you’ll arrive at a better understanding of a situation. In the meantime, pushing your limits is a temptation. You can experience exaggeration or drama with friends or lovers. Watch for overstating, but look for ways to improve your satisfaction levels if you’re feeling a little disconnected. As well, it may be better not to invest too much of yourself in what others are saying, doing, or not doing at the moment. Ideally, you’re aiming just a little higher for a connection or opportunity, which can work in your favor. Fortunately, a Mercury-Uranus trine helps you rise above things, and also stimulates your curiosity. You can bring a new light or perspective to a problem. It’s, in fact, an excellent time to resolve a nagging problem in a relationship or learn something new and helpful about someone significant in your life.
