Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can feel more free to be yourself today, dear Aries, and this can be because others are not putting as much pressure on you or you are detaching yourself from the pressure. You may be looking to a team or cooperative union to accomplish a job. Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle today. Even with some worry about finances or moving around of funds, you’re ultimately heading towards a whole new way of living. As you rewrite what you value most, the respect you attract into your life evolves. You are discovering unique natural talents, learning to embrace and develop them, and letting go of old dependencies or crutches. The coming months will help you work on inner attitudes that need to change so that you can move forward more confidently. It’s also a time for dreaming up inventive ways of making money or reviewing and refining current projects.
TaurusGoing your own way with your work or routines is satisfying now, dear Taurus, and while you tend to have the support of others energetically speaking, you are more inclined to want to go about things at your own pace. Also today, Uranus, currently still transiting your sign, stations and turns retrograde. This yearly five-month retrograde cycle turns some things inward as you get in touch with what drives you, particularly if you’ve felt restless or on edge. Examine which fears or attitudes have limited your independence and personal truth. Plans can go on hold or slow down, whether due to circumstances or because you are not quick to make changes or take personal risks. While Uranus was direct and in your sign in recent months, confidence in your pursuit of new experiences and expression of your independence has been evident. With Uranus now retrograde until January, more is happening inside you than on the surface.
GeminiThe Moon’s transits today give you an emotional boost, dear Gemini, and help you feel in touch with your instincts. You radiate natural confidence, and something or someone motivates you to push a little harder. Uranus, currently transiting your privacy sector, helps you break free from elements of your life that have prevented growth. The more you let go of the weight of secrets and inauthentic behavior, the freer you feel to be yourself. Uranus turns retrograde today, and until January, you tend to process recent events and changes and deal with your feelings about putting things behind you. It’s a powerful time for unusual dreams and strong hunches or coincidences.
CancerToday’s transits encourage you to get and keep busy, dear Cancer. Taking care of domestic or personal responsibilities can be satisfying. The Moon’s move into your solar eighth house encourages research, investigation, or analysis. You’re motivated and engaged, and you make an extra effort to connect with your true desires. Uranus turns retrograde today, and for the next five months, things tend to calm down on the social front. It’s a valuable period for processing recent changes and events with friends, and it benefits you immensely, helping to prevent impulsive, regrettable decisions. When you act from your heart rather than merely react to others and circumstances, you do yourself a service during this retrograde phase.
LeoToday’s transits support one-on-one relating, dear Leo. You might solve a problem, particularly with relationships, or lay a debate to rest. Others positively influence you, gently motivating you to pursue your goals. You’re inclined to seek out company. Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle today, inspiring you to examine needs related to your long-term goals, career, or reputation. You’ve been reshaping your reputation and carving out a unique identity, mainly through your status or profession. Now, it’s time to analyze, plan, and reassess. This cycle lasts until January 27th, and it’s strong for review. Easing back or detaching from things can help you see your life path goals and ambitions in a new light.
VirgoWith the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house today, dear Virgo, you can focus on self-improvement efforts or special attention to your work or routine. You have an eye for what must change to make your daily life more efficient and fulfilling. Also today, Uranus stations and turns retrograde. Uranus has encouraged an “upgrade” of sorts with ninth-house matters, where it’s transiting, such as belief systems, education, publishing, and communications. If you’ve been making changes too quickly in these areas, however, this five-month retrograde phase helps you restore balance. Until late January, it’s a time to process recent changes, beliefs, and experiences.
LibraMars just entered your sign, and you’ll more often pursue your desires and personal plans in the period ahead, dear Libra. Today, with the Moon in harmony with Mars, you’re in particularly good shape for creative and romantic pursuits. It’s a good time to follow a passion or a new interest. Also today, Uranus turns retrograde for five months, making it an excellent time to examine how you depend on others and devise strategies to alter dependencies in ways that benefit you and the people you love. If financial or support matters have been up in the air, disorganized, or unreliable, now’s your chance to figure out why. This transit subtly alters your approach to bringing on change, upgrades, and progress in your intimate life and with finances and debts. While Uranus has been direct since January, changes were more evident and sometimes heavy. But with this planet now retrograde, issues are internalized and less visible.
ScorpioYou’re in a great position to take action on a family or private matter today, dear Scorpio. Mars has only just moved into your solar twelfth house, signaling the need for renewal and replenishment. You have the chance to take action on behind-the-scenes areas of your life, and today, you’re particularly motivated. Today’s retrograde turn of Uranus points to a shift in perception, particularly in a relationship. Uranus is currently transiting your partnership sector, and this yearly, five-month retrograde cycle prompts some meaningful introspection and examination of your relationship needs. Even if unreliability issues are temporarily not as prominent, exploring your inner needs for change can greatly benefit you. You may even need an overhaul on a relationship level to feel more in control when Uranus turns direct again in January.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your solar third house today, dear Sagittarius, and complements you well. This transit pulls out your idealism or motivates you to reach out and make a connection. Exchanges are lively and spirited. Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle today, helping you slow down and examine or even reconsider recent changes related to your daily routines, work, and health. These areas of your life may have been up and down, and looking inward for answers makes sense during this phase that lasts until January. You’re seeking more truth in your work or the services you provide. It makes sense to help your “future self” deal with unpredictability and change more effectively, and looking inward for answers makes sense now.
CapricornWith the Moon’s move out of your sign and into your solar second house today, dear Capricorn, you’re turning your attention to those things that make you feel most comfortable and taking special care of them. It’s a fine time to establish your needs and wants, and explore ways to satisfy them. Uranus has encouraged you to express yourself more authentically and creatively during its long-term transit of your sector of joy. With its retrograde turn today, you’re inclined to slow down with these changes. Life is less about spontaneously reacting and more about considering which reforms are best for you in the long run while Uranus is retrograde until January 27th. Creative projects and possibly even relationships can benefit from some review and refinement.
AquariusThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Aquarius, and almost immediately harmonizes with Mars. Your emotions run very close to the surface, and you express yourself with ease. Your ability to let go and move on boosts emotional satisfaction now, as it’s a wonderful way to take a load off your mind. Also today, your ruler, Uranus, begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle. During the long-term transit of your solar fourth house, some up-in-the-air elements related to your home or personal life have figured strongly. With Uranus now retrograde until late January, you might catch your breath and examine what you need and want along these fronts. Your attitude towards security, dependence, attachment to the past, and family or domestic life will continue to evolve, and in the months ahead, you might aim to recognize and modify your responses to the world so that changes are less random. With a slower pace, you have a better chance of understanding what’s going on around you.
PiscesIt helps that you now see more angles to a story or layers to an issue today, dear Pisces, and the chance of gaining peace of mind is strong. Much is going on behind the scenes, and you may be glowing with excitement. You are more productive when you remove yourself from the hub of activity right now. Taking a step back from the world a little with the Moon moving into your privacy sector is appropriate. It’s time for some reflection and rest. Uranus turns retrograde today, and this yearly, five-month cycle is currently occurring in your communications sector. Uranus has a way of pulling some repressed feelings to the surface, yet you may not feel that you can express them smoothly or fully. In the months ahead, however, you’ll find different–and possibly more satisfying–channels for representing and expressing yourself. You could re-examine some of your projects or interests, which have recently been sporadic or sudden.
