Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWork, duties, or routines can thrive due to your increased motivation these days, dear Aries. You are highly visible today, whether you’ve chosen to be or not, so show your best colors! Others may expect you to take the lead on a matter. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Saturn opposition, and it’s a time to see the reality of a situation, which can lead to the need to make adjustments. There may be tough questions, a reality check, or perhaps some criticism or a delay to deal with, particularly if something was overlooked, neglected, or avoided in the past. You’re motivated to work and take care of business, but you may need to take care of an emotional matter or an obligation to help someone, delaying things a little. If others aren’t appreciating your efforts, you may need a reminder of what you’re doing it all for, or the need for arriving at an improved work-life balance can become very apparent. Consider that pacing yourself can only be for your benefit! Aim to honor and refine routines or draw more explicit boundaries that separate work and rest to your advantage.
TaurusWith the Moon’s move into your spirit sector today, dear Taurus, you’ll find the day’s energy flows smoothly with your fundamental nature. Love relationships receive a blast of warm energy. Still, as the day advances, the Sun heads into opposition with Saturn, and there may be a reality check. While discouraging, it may motivate you to firm up your plans and take care of important details you’ve overlooked. Ultimately, this works in your favor. Whether you’re feeling a little left out or are in the uncomfortable position of having to discipline or limit someone, you are growing and maturing in the process. It can be empowering to know where you stand, as plans made are sturdier and ultimately more realizable as a result. Limitations you deal with now can open you up to freedoms later.
GeminiWith the Moon’s move into your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, you seek a real connection with someone or a project. You gravitate to captivating, all-consuming activities. This two-day transit is beneficial, as you can learn much about yourself and others through observation. However, as the day advances, the Sun heads into opposition with Saturn, and a new, more realistic look at your work-home balance is necessary. There can be quite a pull to follow the rules and achieve your goals and ambitions, but you also crave family and home time. If others don’t seem especially sympathetic to your cause, then you’ll be in the position to rely on yourself, which is likely to work out just fine in the end! Remind yourself that you gain strength as you humble yourself to certain realities. Taking a second look at personal plans can be useful now.
CancerThe Moon moves into your partnership sector today, dear Cancer, bringing you into a more sociable mood or one in which you’d prefer to share your ideas or activities with someone. Still, as the day advances, the Sun heads into its yearly opposition with Saturn, pointing a roadblock or reality check, and this year, it spreads across your communication and transit sectors. If you’ve let something go or neglected a responsibility or errand, it can now come back to your attention, perhaps with some minor consequences attached. This may also be a time for recognizing the limits of time or energy for a project that you began approximately half a year ago. Take this opportunity to make more mature and informed decisions. While criticism may enter the picture, learning from it is possible. Aim to downsize or pare down rather than take on more.
LeoThe Moon moves into your work and health sector today, dear Leo, and focusing on daily routines or details can be comforting. Taking care of business or chores might help take the pressure off overthinking other areas of your life. You tend to go out of your way to support or help others. As the day advances, the Sun heads into opposition with Saturn, and there may be the need to face a financial or relationship reality before going forward. Someone may be disapproving or less than sympathetic, or you may need to draw some boundaries. Fortunately, delays occurring now may very well lead to better conditions later, so be willing to muster up patience. Managing problems could prompt you to take better care of your resources. Adjustments made now may send you in a new direction that better serves you in the long term. It’s a good time to review how you’re managing your resources and talents.
VirgoThere is some caution or introspection early today, dear Virgo, but with the Moon’s move into your creativity sector, you naturally release tensions through creative, entertaining activities. However, the Sun in your sign heads into opposition with Saturn later today, and you may need to face up to reality, a restriction, or a responsibility. A relationship challenge could emerge or reach a head, and you may not have others’ full cooperation, but you have the tools to sort things out even without a definite answer from someone. Keep in mind that while critics can be annoying, they may have something to show us. This can be a time for shoring up or taking steps to make you feel less vulnerable if you’ve been overlooking or neglecting a matter. If circumstances or a particular person seem to be slowing you down today, consider that you may need to step back and make corrections.
LibraThe Moon in your communications sector early day stirs a desire to communicate and collect information, dear Libra. However, the Moon moves into your home and family sector, and you find familiar, comforting activities that help build confidence from the ground up. A Sun-Saturn opposition comes into play later today, and this year, it occurs along the work-rest axis of your solar chart. This influence can remind you of responsibilities you may have avoided or neglected or work requiring edits or adjustments. Obligations you’ve forgotten about or avoided may need your attention now, perhaps with some consequences if you’ve let something slide. The Sun in your privacy sector has been encouraging your need for relaxation, and Saturn serves as a reminder of the tasks that need handling most! This transit is about a better balance inside and out, and you owe it to yourself to go there.
ScorpioYou enter a more curious lunar period today, dear Scorpio, and it’s now time for branching out and entertaining new possibilities. As the day advances, the Sun heads into opposition with Saturn. The current Sun transit invites your social side to come out to play and can point you toward new and exciting projects or other happiness goals. However, Saturn’s influence presents some possible restrictions. There can be frustrations, delays, or possibly disapproval in a relationship or with a creative pursuit, or there can be some concerns or anxieties that keep you from thoroughly enjoying yourself just for the time being. You’re reminded of your responsibilities, and while this can feel limiting, you can benefit from slowing down and making some adjustments to your plans before going forward. Consider what’s best for you in the long run. It’s a yearly transit that encourages you to realign, tidy up your life or a project, take care of unfinished business, and adjust expectations.
SagittariusThe Moon in your sign early today magnifies your emotions, dear Sagittarius, but the Moon moves into your solar second house, and your emotional requirements don’t appear as urgent. It’s a good time to remind yourself of what you already have in your life and appreciate these things. You’re inclined to play it safe on an emotional level, and this is an essential exercise as you work on making your life more comfortable and secure. As the day advances, the Sun heads into opposition with Saturn, and this yearly transit can come as a reminder to correct some errors or redirect you if you’ve steered off-course. This may be most prominent in your work-home balance. Household or family responsibilities, restructuring, or some personal reservations and fears of exposure or risk can interrupt you now, but efforts to make corrections can be highly beneficial to you. This is a time for examining whether you’ve been practical or self-limiting. Most likely, it’s a bit of both! You may very well find that you’ve wasted too much energy dreading something that ended up much easier than you’d imagined.
CapricornWith the Moon’s move into your sign today, dear Capricorn, emotions are running very close to the surface. Your ability to let go and move on is a good way to take a load off your mind. Still, as the day advances, a Sun-Saturn opposition comes into play, reminding you of your responsibilities, paperwork, errands, or studies that need your attention. There may be the need to go back to the drawing board with a project. Refinements and edits can be necessary now. Worries, fears of expansion, and insecurities might also limit your experiences if you arrive at a state of indecision. There could be disapproval or criticism that temporarily puts a damper on things, but it might ultimately motivate you to tighten up your work or brush up on your skills. If there’s no lesson in it, do your best to discard negativity. Find ways to put habits that are holding you back from growing, learning, and experiencing life behind you.
AquariusYou gravitate to activities involving reflection, deep thought, research, and investigation today, dear Aquarius. The Moon moves into your privacy sector, encouraging you to take things easy and keep a low profile just for now. As the day advances, a Sun-Saturn opposition comes into play, and it can bring a particular responsibility to your attention or an obstacle to overcome. Blockages related to money or business, and perhaps a more substantial need for security and safety, can temporarily disrupt the equilibrium or your enjoyment of a relationship. There may be a disappointment or limitation encountered, or if you’ve let something go or procrastinated on a matter, this can be a time to face it. Fear of loss can be at the root of either possessiveness or emotional distancing in a relationship.
PiscesWith the Moon’s move into your social sector today, dear Pisces, your friendliest qualities are in the spotlight. You’re interested in making progress. As the day advances, the Sun and Saturn head into opposition. Saturn is currently transiting your sign, and as it faces off with the Sun, it might bring worries or frustrations to your attention for handling. Fear of not getting what you want shouldn’t prevent you from even trying, and right now, there’s a tendency to refuse to play the game so that you won’t have to deal with the possibility of losing it. Keep in mind that the limitations you encounter now can set you on a new path that is better aligned with your values or more beneficial for you. Aim to be as patient as you can, both with others and with yourself if things are not going the way you expected. You may get the sense that you’re dealing with everything on your own, and if so, consider how to change the situation.
