Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesFeeling satisfied with work and the many little things that you’ve accomplished can figure strongly now, dear Aries. Instead of resting on your laurels, however, you’re using this feeling to motivate you further. Good energy is with you for optimistic feelings, sharing ideas with others, and solving problems. Your approach to practical matters is positive and creative. You’re in good shape for expressing your goals or intentions or clarifying your position. Drawing up plans for the future can be in the spotlight and quite successful. Positive developments with work, reputation, or career are likely, or there can be news that points you in the right direction. As the day advances, worries can enter the picture. You could be concerned about losing a position or value in others’ eyes. Try to channel your energy into working on vulnerable areas for best results now. You could be dealing with pressures from competition, but you also need some peace so that you can bring the best version of yourself to your practical affairs and responsibilities. A compromise seems your best bet.
TaurusIn the first half of the day, you enjoy wonderfully smooth energy for your ideas, thoughts, and creative process, dear Taurus. It’s a time to express yourself creatively and see the bigger picture regarding a relationship, venture, or pursuit. You might make decisions about higher learning, long-term goals, and making plans to do more, learn more, and experience more. Your mind is open, and making changes feels natural. You recognize a need for more creative and expressive outlets, and you’re now steering in the right direction. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto opposition gets closer, bringing buried feelings to a head. Attempt to acknowledge fears and concerns and avoid allowing them to drive your behavior now. Clashing with someone is possible, and since this transit occurs along your communications axis, you may be taking differences in opinion very seriously right now. Keep in mind that attempts to over-manage your life can only lead to stress.
GeminiA generous and open approach to domestic issues, sharing, finances, and intimacy can be most successful today, dear Gemini. There is a tendency to focus on the most supportive, positive, and hopeful scenarios in the first half of the day thanks to a Mercury-Jupiter trine. Things flow, particularly on mental and emotional levels. You might sort matters out in your mind or with someone special and get to happy places and conclusions. People tend to cooperate with you, and family or intimate relationships can improve simply through connecting, reaching out, sharing good humor, or extending help or support. Cooperation helps fuel your motivation. As the day advances, tension can stir conflicts, but it helps uncover something important about yourself, another person, or a circumstance. If you’ve been especially attached to someone or something, it’s time for a test or turning point.
CancerConversations and humor flow smoothly, dear Cancer, as Mercury harmonizes with optimistic Jupiter, lightening things up. You are more fluent than usual in expressing your ideas. It can be a time of a significant bright idea or intellectual win. Others tend to treat you well, give you the benefit of the doubt, and enjoy your perspective and humor. You feel supported on a mental level, or you come to a happy agreement with someone special. There can also be interesting offers and good news or reviews. You might enjoy a satisfying sense of growth and faith in a relationship. As the day advances, Venus, in your sign, heads toward an opposition to Pluto. A clash with someone over attachments and allegiances is possible, or intense feelings can emerge that give you a stronger understanding of what’s missing.
LeoA Mercury-Jupiter aspect lightens the mood, dear Leo, and encourages you to think in bigger terms. It’s an excellent time to make financial plans and to discuss strategies for reaching your goals. Your vision of an issue is broad, and this helps you to put things into perspective. Your supportive role could be recognized and appreciated. With more faith in your abilities and worth, it could be a good time to attract positive feedback from others. A problem might resolve itself. As the day advances, Venus heads into an opposition with Pluto, bringing frustrations to a head. Your need for relaxation and retreat so that you can heal is real, but this aspect can aggravate your fears of falling behind or of letting someone else take the reins. Consider reaching a compromise for improved health, both emotional and physical.
VirgoMercury in your sign forms a nice relationship with lucky Jupiter today, dear Virgo, and you’re communicating positively. You are generous with your time in the first part of the day. It’s easier than usual to rise above problems and make the best of circumstances. You may solve a problem, whether for yourself or others. You can use the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests. Expressing yourself through a hobby or creative pastime can figure strongly now. As the day advances, your feelings for someone or something can be overflowing. The need for easygoing connections is high, but the pull of intense relationships or projects is great. You could feel reeled into something intense or complicated, but you may need to draw on self-control and find ways to detach enough to unwind. Experiences now prompt you to address excesses in your social life, particularly if they’re draining material or emotional resources.
LibraDreams and intuition are fertile for ideas today, dear Libra. You could find yourself in a supportive role and enjoy taking care of someone. Connecting with loved ones and your inner world can be satisfying. You might gain valuable insight or inspiration through your communications with loved ones, your dreams, and personal musings. Even with this positive energy surrounding you, a break would be well-timed today. As the day advances, Venus and Pluto head into opposition, pulling up frustrations related to fears and insecurities. While you’re taking more pleasure in your work, connections to friends, or outside responsibilities these days, concerns about your personal life distract you. Home or family life may be complicated, or you could be feeling guilty about spreading your wings, and the events of the day can offer some clues as to where you can begin to make some compromises.
ScorpioYou’re inclined to think in big terms today, dear Scorpio, and certain issues seem easier to resolve with this helpful “view.” You are drawing in opportunities as you communicate more openly and positively. You can inspire friends and connections, or gain inspiration through them. You’re excited about learning skills. You might enjoy a conversation or a new interest. Reaching out and communicating can boost or make a friendship. Compliments, positive reinforcement, acknowledgments, and other kind gestures are favored. It’s a strong time to teach, guide, and learn. Later today, however, Venus moves into opposition with Pluto. Watch for obsessive thinking if it’s preventing you from expanding, exploring new ideas and experiences, and reaching out. You need to leave your “post” from time to time without guilt, so attempt to reach a compromise. Love is complicated right now, but it’s best to avoid power plays.
SagittariusMercury forms a trine to your ruler, Jupiter, opening your mind to possibilities, dear Sagittarius. Good news can arrive, or you might enjoy sharing something special that brightens someone’s day. Making plans for your money, business deals, and problem-solving can be successful. The power of positive thinking makes anything seem possible right now. A fair, optimistic, or moral outlook enhances your reputation or professional position. You might get the chance to clarify a misunderstanding or your opinion on a matter. You can feel particularly motivated to achieve your goals to build a more comfortable life for yourself. As the day advances, we head towards a Venus-Pluto opposition, which can turn on some worries or concerns. You’d be wise to watch for holding on too tightly to people, situations, and things, as this can prevent you from letting go and more fully engaging emotionally. Identify areas where you may be acting compulsively or possessively, and pledge to release some control.
CapricornAcceptance comes easily in the first half of today, dear Capricorn. It’s an excellent time to make plans and to think in bigger terms with ideas, publishing, learning, and connecting. Your sense of future trends is brilliant. Opportunities open up to you as you share your thoughts and make an effort to reach out. Conversations can be very fruitful and even inspiring. It’s easier than usual to find satisfying channels for enjoyment and self-expression, and it’s also likely that others are cooperating with you. You have a stronger sense of self and fun, and you’re open to learning and doing new things. Your frame of mind is open and free, but some worries or concerns can move in as the day advances. The tendency is to insist on “all or nothing” when you would be far better off meeting someone halfway. It may be best to avoid extremes, as stubbornness or unwillingness to budge on a matter can prevent you from enjoying, learning, and improving.
AquariusCooperation comes easily in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, and your mind opens up wide. It can be a good time to strike up a conversation about a private or personal matter. Mercury forms a trine to Jupiter in your house of karma, the past, endings, and resolve, and it can be a time to overcome a challenge. Forgiveness and putting the pieces of an uncertain situation together in a satisfying manner can figure strongly. You’re in fine shape to teach, guide, and share ideas. You have all the power to put something behind you and to make peace with the past. As the day advances, we head toward a Venus-Pluto opposition, and you might have a tough time understanding some of your deepest emotions. Staying out of touch with them can lead to problems in your interactions, however, particularly with people you deal with daily. There are great benefits and joy involved with your work and daily routines, so don’t let insecurities prevent you from giving what you love your all.
PiscesMercury and Jupiter harmonize today, dear Pisces, and the ability to put things into perspective opens up doors that were once shut. You’re entertaining new ideas, and people seem open to your viewpoint. There may be a discovery of a new way to share your thoughts that can be rewarding. It can be helpful to put your head together with someone to come up with a solution. You might enjoy positive feedback, and exchanges or interactions lead to hopeful and optimistic feelings. It’s a good time for counseling, advice, and negotiation. The day’s energies grow complicated as the day advances as we head toward a Venus-Pluto opposition. While intensity can be passionate at times, today, it might veer towards power-tripping in relationships. Extremes are tempting with this all-or-nothing transit. If you’re spending far too much time and energy trying to figure out your relationships, consider ways to detach yourself just enough to unwind.
