Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be a focus on sharing memories, sentimentality, and compassion in the first half of the day, dear Aries. You’re supporting loved ones or they you, and you’re more generous than usual with your time and energy. You might put extra effort into improving or balancing the atmosphere in your home, or you go the extra mile to make things easier and more peaceful with loved ones. It’s also a good time for personal reflection. As the day advances, a Mars-Saturn square can challenge you to face up to reality or to manage a delay or slowdown. Tension and blockages likely revolve around your social life or finances, or there can be a conflict between sticking with tried-and-true methods and going out on a limb. You may disagree with someone about core values or whether they value you in crucial ways. Consider putting a problem aside if it’s just not budging. You may think of a better way to go about it later!
TaurusWith a Venus-Neptune trine influencing the first half of the day, dear Taurus, you could feel emotionally and soulfully connected to people, particularly friends. Communications flow, and there is understanding even if the words are not perfect. Your need for harmony and peace is in strong form. It’s a time to discover feelings you hadn’t yet fully acknowledged. As the day advances, you may want to treat others with extra sensitivity and care, particularly on the job. There could be a slowdown if you’ve been rushing ahead too fast, which is quite likely with energetic Mars currently transiting your sign! This could take the form of a delay, criticism, reality check, or discouraging moment. Aim to pick yourself back up and strengthen your plans so that you get back on course and are better equipped to weather small storms.
GeminiYou have balanced Venus moving through your sector of money, values, and comfort, dear Gemini, and connecting with your wants and needs comes naturally these days. Today, there is even more art and creativity added to the equation, and you are likely to have a stronger sense of how to fill the empty spaces. There could be good finds and deals for things that truly improve your life. You can also feel motivated to make your daily life better. The day advances with more tension, however. A Mars-Saturn square can mean you’re dealing with obstacles or slowdowns, or there is a sense that you can’t express yourself, your desires, or your frustrations effectively. You could be feeling that you’re stuck in the past, unable to move forward. Enthusiasm can wane temporarily. It’s important to focus on tying up loose ends rather than fixating on things you can’t change or control.
CancerYour idealism and romantic nature are in the spotlight early today, dear Cancer, and you’re likely to find it natural to dream of beautiful things, experiences, and situations. Your compassion meters skyrocket and your most appealing traits are in the spotlight. However, as the day progresses, a Mars-Saturn square can slow you down if you’ve been pushing too hard or too fast in a particular area. Difficulties with trust and power dynamics that have been festering might now emerge in challenging ways. Bottled-up anger can challenge your well-being while exploding can also be destructive. Aim for moderation, and you’ll be in the best position now. Do your best to respond to challenges with patience and mindfulness.
LeoGood energy is with you for a new understanding of matters along compassionate lines early today, dear Leo. Bringing an open mind and heart into your close personal relationships can bring rewards, and coming to someone’s aid can be rewarding. As the day advances, the tone is on the serious side with a Mars-Saturn transit in play. A challenge now can remind you of limits, rules, or obstacles, most notably through a person or relationship. This means it’s time to slow down, reconsider, review, and adjust. There can be difficulties with a partner or superior today, or you may feel that you’re misunderstood or blocked when it comes to pursuing your goals or asserting your wishes. Watch for defensiveness, which won’t serve you well, and do your best with what you have. Blocks are temporary and may very well be helpful, as redirection can pull your attention to flaws that need correcting before going forward.
VirgoIn the first half of the day, you can see previously overlooked possibilities, dear Virgo. The atmosphere around you is open and accepting. You can be in an excellent position to brainstorm, team up, collaborate, and share. As the day advances, a Mars-Saturn transit is a tense one but can lead to important releases. You may be dealing with stubbornness in others or blocked plans, but consider that the harder you push, the more resistance you’re likely to encounter just for now. Try not to waste time and energy on things you can’t change, and aim to concentrate on improving relationships, which are likely to see movement and growth.
LibraYour planetary ruler harmonizes with Neptune, influencing early today, dear Libra. You’re likely to see possibilities and opportunities that you overlooked on busier days. Feeling comfortable, at ease, and content can attract good things to you. This influence boosts your charm. As the day advances, a Mars-Saturn square wants you to slow down if you’ve been pushing a pursuit — or yourself — too hard. Intimate matters or issues of money, commitment, trust, and power dynamics can be tricky now, and patience is required. Some off-timing or inhibitions temporarily prevent a smooth flow of affection and direct assertion. It may be a better time to slow down or yield.
ScorpioA Venus-Neptune transit influencing early today supports your romantic, intuitive, and creative side, dear Scorpio. Your appeal is strong, and you express yourself uniquely and creatively. There can be a feeling of unburdening, letting go of negative things or thoughts, and enjoying others. Still, a Mars-Saturn transit brings stop-and-go energy to your relationships, especially as the day advances. Interactions may suffer from poor timing, or others seem disapproving and disinterested. There can be a sense of being blocked, either by others or by circumstances, and this can be frustrating. However, it’s also a message from the cosmos to be patient, to wait things out, and to spend a little more time getting things right before pushing ahead with your plans.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, you could find innovative solutions for problems related to home, family, debt, and support, dear Sagittarius, which happens quite intuitively. It’s a time to enjoy, accept, and embrace your deeper feelings and desires. Opportunities to grow and improve open up with a more relaxed and creative approach to your life. You are particularly open-minded and ready to entertain even the most unusual of feelings. Forgiveness and self-forgiveness come more readily. However, tensions can emerge as the day advances, and a Mars-Saturn square occurs. If you’ve been pushing in one direction too quickly, you may encounter blocks to your plans. An aggressive or impatient approach to a work project or health program may need adjustments. Consider that delays can allow you to make advantageous refinements and edits so that you can resume your activities better equipped later. Avoid limiting yourself unnecessarily with a pessimistic view of what can and can’t be done. Think far less about immediate gratification and instead focus on long-term rewards for best results today.
CapricornThe first half of the day holds strong energy for giving a person or relationship their due attention, dear Capricorn. You might enjoy psychic rapport with someone special. You might release a burden. Others are putting their faith in you, and this, in turn, motivates you to step up your game. Love is more gracious than usual. However, a Mars-Saturn square comes into play, and it might apply the brakes to projects and plans that have been moving too fast for their own good. Keep in mind, however, that this is merely a slowdown, not a halt. You’ve been more confidently pursuing fun and games recently, and today, you might come to a roadblock, and quite possibly a financial limitation. Or, worries and concerns put a damper on your mood. You may be fearful of change on a basic security level, yet attracted to taking some risks, and this poses a dilemma now. Take your time, avoid pushing in the face of resistance, but do pay attention to your responsibilities and fulfill them to the best of your ability.
AquariusYou’re in good shape for intuition and imagination applied to practical matters today, dear Aquarius. Your sixth sense can lead you to a useful method or technique for your work, a new business or money-making idea, or a creative approach to a health problem. You are especially willing and open to helping others in the first half of the day. A sense of inner joy and peace can be with you as you find more meaning in what you’re doing. A Mars-Saturn square later today is very different energy, however. You can experience a feeling of being unsupported or overly burdened. While it’s temporary, it’s important to examine ways to make changes in your life to prevent problems such as these from festering. You may be digging in your heels, especially if others are pushing or rushing you or if they are insensitive. A slow, patient, and moderate approach is the most successful today.
PiscesWith a Venus-Neptune trine influencing the first half of the day, dear Pisces, it’s a time for fully recognizing inner and spiritual values. Boundaries between you and others tend to soften, and bonds can strengthen. Gentleness, compassion, and warmth are the routes to happiness. Energies shift considerably as the day advances, and you should watch for defensiveness and sensitivity. Consider this a time for the motivation to plan more responsibly or clearly as Mars and Saturn form a square aspect. You may be dealing with communication or transportation delays, but while they appear to set you back, they may very well point you in the right direction. You might now notice details you missed due to your haste the first time. Finish up those things that need a little more attention rather than pushing ahead. Aim to tie up loose ends and avoid speaking too soon or too impulsively about a matter. Your ability to take criticism may be tested, or you might wrestle with your inner critic.
