Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could feel that you need something (or someone) with great intensity today, dear Aries, but there can be love-hate feelings involved. You might have to face some truths that stimulate your fears, particularly in your career, relationships, or financial affairs. However, this is also an excellent time for digging deep and embracing your ambitions. Today’s Mercury-Jupiter transit can produce good news about education, publishing, business income, or friendship. You’re ready to share happiness or helpful information! There can be some struggle with a decision today, but you’re coming out on top. This transit encourages you to think in the most favorable terms. You have a bigger, more optimistic view of social and happiness goals. Still, as the day advances, you might temporarily lose some motivation for what you’re doing, or you could feel some doubts as you reassess certain paths or projects. It might help to focus on letting go of negative feelings to make room for more joy in your life. With the Sun in your solar ninth house, you’re focusing on the bigger picture, but its square to Neptune today points to a tendency to feel a little held back by some issues that you’ve left untied. Uncertainty is part of this, and while it’s uncomfortable, the sooner you either take care of it or learn to live with it, the better.
TaurusYou can experience considerable excitement about an idea or subject today, dear Taurus, and others are highly interested in what you have to say, teach, or share. You’re a magnet now! It’s also an intense day for enjoying learning and developing your skills or knowledge, perhaps with or because of someone special. Today’s energies are good for mutually beneficial agreements, cooperating with others, or receiving helpful feedback. Quiet study or research can turn up the answers you need and perhaps some rewards. Focusing on something absorbing and pouring a lot of energy into a project you care about can boost your mood. However, locking something down may have to wait. Later today, you might struggle a bit with divided attention and some uncertainty. Ambiguities are temporary and, in some ways, useful for helping you pace yourself. However, it’s best not to make impulsive moves based on your current mood or perceptions if they’re going off course. A desire to make a deeper connection to someone can cloud your vision just for the time being, and wishful thinking has a way of skewing your perceptions. Some confusion with boundaries in relationships or balance and power issues in partnerships can hang over you temporarily. You may need to clear the path of sketchy allegiances before getting to a better place.
GeminiIt can be a day to recognize your need for more from your relationships or projects and activities, dear Gemini. If your needs are unmet, aim to use your intensity for something productive. You’re interested in exploring a topic further, and you’re in great shape for bringing something to a new level, whether it’s an idea, project, or relationship. Aim to nurture a pleasant attachment to a project. Also today, a Mercury-Jupiter transit opens minds, and willingness to learn increases clarity and satisfaction. Others have a way of jumpstarting your thinking processes, and conversations can turn into something inspirational or get your creative juices flowing. Your ability to put things into perspective can open up doors that were previously closed, not only because you’re entertaining new ideas but also because others are more willing to consider your viewpoint. However, with a Sun-Neptune square active later today, it’s all too easy to have a veil over your eyes in some areas. Instead, a sense of uncertainty about where you’re heading can drain you of energy temporarily. Aim to leave important decision-making for a clearer time, if possible, as this is a time to observe and reorient yourself. It’s not the time to push your plans forward or make significant commitments. Sometimes, pushing for a direction can work against you when arriving at one more intuitively is better.
CancerThe desire for just a little more from a relationship or project is with you today, dear Cancer. A significant someone can be reacting strongly as Venus and Pluto align in your partnership sector. You could be seeking out the truth of a matter, perhaps because you’re tired of wondering and questioning what and who to believe. Or, this can be a brilliant time for making changes in your relationships or breaking worn-out relating patterns. Today’s Mercury-Jupiter aspect boosts your optimism, and you can get much done in this frame of mind. It’s a time to think up new methods and plans for self-improvement that excite you. Later today, a Sun-Neptune square comes into play, and it’s better to approach things in a relaxed, creative way, where appropriate, keeping in mind that things may not be clear-cut or certain. You may feel out of wind, or motivation levels come up lacking temporarily with this transit. What inspired you in the past may not entirely cut it and may need some adjustments, or you might seek a different source of inspiration.
LeoYou might experience a moment of truth and possibly extra motivation to kick a bad habit, dear Leo. Your feelings are strong, and you can be emotionally quite sensitive today. Work and health matters may gain traction, or you enjoy deeper ambition and motivation to improve them. A Mercury-Jupiter transit today helps conversations flow smoothly, and creative thinking can find satisfying channels or mediums. One-on-one exchanges can be particularly beneficial, and a pleasant conversation can figure strongly. Thoughts or musings can take you somewhere special today. Still, there can be a lack of clarity later today. On the one hand, you might enjoy some dreamy, creative, and possibly inspiring elements. On the other, your mood can be a little too dependent on others’ reactions or circumstances going your way. There can be a reason to hesitate, and it may be best not to commit to something you could later regret. Some self-doubt, or doubt about recent undertakings, is natural right now and may very well help steer you in a better direction if you give it a little time.
VirgoTransits today can stir you to create something from the heart, dear Virgo. You’re ready to embrace activities that are absorbing or demanding. It’s also an excellent time for attracting the right resources to you. It’s a time for new ideas and enthusiasm for a person or project. Transits now are good for conversations and problem-solving related to family, home, parents, work, and health matters. Great ideas can come to you with fresh thinking. With others more cooperative, you feel better about what you’re doing. You can feel inspired to work harder or push yourself just a little more to reach a goal. However, later today, there can be evasiveness in a relationship, or you may be dealing with some dashed hopes or deflation if a situation (or someone) isn’t pulling through for you as you’d hoped. While it’s temporary, it makes sense to pay these feelings a bit of attention since they can show you areas of your life requiring some refreshment. Try not to self-soothe with lies to yourself, and instead, aim to give yourself and situations a bit of space. At the same time, avoid commitments or hard conclusions until you’re in a clearer frame of mind.
LibraYou can learn a lot about people you care about and your needs today, dear Libra. Reminiscing can lead to interesting and revealing discussions. Good news about money matters or a feeling of abundance can figure strongly now. A Mercury-Jupiter transit benefits your communications and creative output. There can be encouraging words shared, or you receive positive feedback now. You find many reasons to think positively, and it’s easier to verbalize what you want. However, a Sun-Neptune square transit seems to slow you down later today. Just for now, it’s hard to make sense of the signals you’re receiving. You may be in a better place if you entertain daydreams and avoid expecting everything to run as scheduled. Look for ways to strengthen weaker areas of your life that may be holding you back from shining, particularly with routines that have become slack.
ScorpioYou can be in a good position to communicate your feelings or persuade and delight with what you say today, dear Scorpio. Close relationships can thrive with special attention and intensity. Also today, a Mercury-Jupiter aspect raises your mood and encourages positive thinking. You’re in excellent shape for thoughts and conversations about money, family, or home life. As the day advances, you may need to take some extra time for rest or reflection. A Sun-Neptune square has a way of spotlighting areas of your life where you need either more reality or inspiration! With a solution feeling further out of reach than usual, you may need some time to get to a clearer headspace. There can be temptations to jump into a new purchase or experience without considering the consequences, and it’s best to keep these tendencies at bay. If you’re experiencing a lull in motivation, it’s probably temporary, and it could be a sign you need a break or another form of refreshment.
SagittariusYou might discover ways to make more of what you have today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s satisfying. It’s a good time to resolve to do what you can to improve your financial situation, your attitude towards your earnings, or the ability to take care of yourself. You’re also in a great position to strategize and design plans. Good energy is with you for creating something beautiful or some good memories. You express yourself with more ease, which attracts new opportunities your way. You might take on new interests, study something special, and possibly enjoy a learning breakthrough. Today’s Mercury-Jupiter aspect encourages positive thinking and exchanges. Later today, a Sun-Neptune square coming into play reminds you to slow down and consider your unmet needs before pushing forward. Feeling deflated temporarily can seem a nuisance now, but could also give you pause to rethink certain plans or goals in creative ways.
CapricornWhile you should watch for a tendency to put too much weight or energy into a particular line of thought or pursuit, dear Capricorn, with some moderation, it’s a good time to focus. The desire to improve your current conditions can lead to profoundly meaningful changes. You’re a self-starter, and this energy magnifies today. Also today, you might figure out a way to handle a private matter or a problem that has been weighing you down. A sudden memory or unexpected connection can figure strongly and positively. However, later today, it’s hard to lock things down. There can be uncertainty hanging around you, and leaving things open or undecided may be necessary. There can be disruptions to the regular flow, but the detours you take can lead to new ideas and perhaps some inspiration. If motivation levels are low, consider ways to fill your needs for more imagination, romance, or spirituality in your life.
AquariusDesires are strong today, dear Aquarius, and there can be sudden, revealing moments when feelings seem to emerge out of nowhere. A Mercury-Jupiter aspect today can encourage new visions of your future that motivate and inspire you. The support of friends or incoming news and tips can figure strongly. It may be a good time to talk shop with associates or to run business ideas by friends. Feeling more hopeful about a dream or plan figures strongly now. Still, as the day advances, a Sun-Neptune square approaches, and it could play with your expectations and motivation levels. It’s best to avoid making any commitments that you might later regret, and instead, give yourself or a matter some time and space. Take things a little more slowly now so that you can tune into your intuition.
PiscesIt’s an auspicious time to make amends, make connections, or start anew, dear Pisces. You’re getting an honest glimpse into problem areas plus a window into your deepest needs, which is a potent combination. Today’s Mercury-Jupiter transit is fortunate for personal influence and warm, smooth relations with others. You’re expressing yourself naturally, and you’re more in touch with what you’re feeling. Making plans for your career, life path, money, business deals, and problem-solving are in focus. You’re drawing upon your wisdom and experience to make better decisions. However, motivation levels are subject to ups and downs later today with the Sun about to form a square to Neptune. You may be searching for some inspiration, which can keep you in a restless state temporarily. Aim to manage your expectations and take it as a sign that you may need to better align your dreams with your plans.
