Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Solar Eclipse can serve to energize your need to branch out, make a mark on the world, and communicate, dear Aries. The thing to watch at this time, however, is prematurity. Don’t push something too quickly. Aim to build up ideas, courage, and enthusiasm. Still, you’re likely to enjoy new ideas and experiences as your perspective on your life changes during this eclipse season. Expanding your reach or audience can figure strongly, or you’re learning new things that excite you. Certainly, this is a time to discover a love of a topic or discipline. Today’s energies have a way of wiping the slate clean for new beginnings. As well, your ruler, Mars, harmonizes with Mercury, facilitating good ideas or the urge to share. You can be especially busy on a mental level now. Both in business and your intimate world, a generous and open approach brings the most rewards. This is also a good time for inspiring faith in your relationships and for coming to peaceful agreements about money, power, and sharing.
TaurusFinancial new beginnings may be in store after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Taurus, and circumstances could very well require you to rethink your financial strategies. This eclipse might open doors to you for following a passion. It can empower you to make lifestyle or psychological changes. Debts and loans, yours or a partner’s income, or financial backing can figure strongly during this eclipse season. You’re prompted to develop strategies to cut out unhealthy dependencies and habits that have prevented you from growing and thriving. This can be a time for taking charge of your finances, particularly money shared with others or coming from sources other than your income. On another level, this eclipse season can be about boosting your intimate world, whether it’s a relationship with someone or with yourself as you discover your passions and your deeper desires. Going “all in” with a special project or pursuit can be a satisfying focus in the weeks ahead. Also today, talking frankly about personal matters can be satisfying. Sharing ideas, plans, and visions with someone you care about can figure strongly and boost you up.
GeminiToday’s Solar Eclipse can prompt you to give relationship lacks and needs a good “think,” dear Gemini. There can be a chance for a new beginning or a cleaning of the slate related to a partnership, negotiation, or commitment. You might benefit from counseling or pairing up with someone to accomplish something important to you in the weeks and even months ahead. Themes this year and next can relate to a new or enhanced partnership or can lead to a commitment to go (or stay) solo. You benefit from taking the time to get in touch with your needs by observation and self-honesty. Also today, confidence in your ideas and plans is strong. In fact, you can feel highly motivated and enthused, and good energy is with you for sorting through problems or bringing ideas to life. Increased clarity and good feelings come from frankness and openness. Your natural talents are more evident and attractive.
CancerOrganizing, chores, and health pursuits are favored after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Cancer, as it occurs in your solar sixth house. A new job, major project, or commitment to wellness can be in the works. This eclipse season gives you a cosmic nudge to deal with the details and practical side of everyday life, become more organized, and take charge of your routines. Still, it would be best if you also took the time for rest and regeneration. This is an important time for formulating goals, initiatives, and plans that get you back on track physically and mentally. Also today, you can be excited about putting ideas into motion. It’s a good time to attend to your health, such as through diet and exercise, or your job. Energies are also favorable for partnerships, love affairs, and relationships with artistic peers. While there are days when you tend to magnetize what you fear due to a focus on flaws and frustrations, today it’s about attracting what you desire.
LeoToday’s Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar fifth house, dear Leo, emphasizing a new approach or path related to romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, or pleasure. Confidence in sharing and expressing yourself more freely is on the upswing. This can be a cosmic nudge to express your feelings and do more creating, romancing, enjoying, and entertaining in the weeks ahead. There can be opening doors, new beginnings, or restarts along creative or romantic lines. You’re becoming very enthusiastic about making changes in these areas. Also today, you’re more willing to take a chance on yourself. Bringing ideas to life can be in focus now. You can feel especially protected by or protective of loved ones. Openness and willingness are important qualities that lead to success today.
VirgoA new start with family, home life, or living conditions and arrangements is possible after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Virgo. This eclipse pushes a time for honoring your need for comfort, safety, love, nurturing, and familiarity. Changes in the organization of your home or with family members may be in order in the coming weeks. This eclipse season activates your career-home axis, and it’s about achieving a better balance in your life. The challenge at this stage is to bring more of yourself to your personal life instead of being only half present. Also today, you’re in a good position for communicating, following a hunch, or seeking out new interests. You can feel pleasantly busy and on top of things. You’re in particularly fine shape for domestic activities or doing things with family or loved ones. Frank and open discussions may clear the air.
LibraWe’re in eclipse season, and it’s wise to slow down just a little, dear Libra. As they fall along your communications axis, eclipses are stirring your desire for variety, mental stimulation, and contact. The need for new beginnings on the lines of communicating, learning, and commuting can become apparent with today’s Solar Eclipse. Sometimes systems break down and force new ways of doing things. Even so, new worlds can open up as you move through the world just a little differently and discover new channels for expressing yourself and connecting with others. Also today, you’re getting into the frame of mind where you don’t want to dwell on problems; you want to fix them. You’re in a particularly good position for studies, conversations, and making connections. You tend to get to the point quickly. You might pair up with someone for a satisfying activity or for problem-solving. Especially favored now are money news, good buys, and enjoyment with loved ones or on the home front. You might enjoy a reconciliation or a clarification that brings you closer to someone you love. There can be a stronger desire to enjoy yourself and recent victories.
ScorpioToday’s Solar Eclipse can prompt a new budget or plan, dear Scorpio, as it occurs in your solar second house. This eclipse season encourages you to start fresh with your money or find improved ways to manage your resources. It can also nudge you toward better spending habits and more faith and confidence in your ability to take care of yourself. If you’re looking to earn more, this can be a time to seek out new channels. A new worldview can be changing your relationship with your belongings, finances, comfort, and sense of security. Also today, you can be in great shape with ideas along these fronts. A surge of energy for defending or asserting yourself may lead to improvements in earnings, work methods, and health or lifestyle. What seems like a problem ends up resolving in your favor now. You attract admirers with natural confidence or contentment.
SagittariusToday’s Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and can serve as a powerful slate cleaner. Something new inside you begins, and it can feel much like a new chapter in your life story. You are ready to kick bad habits, start fresh, and present a more self-assured “you” to the world. As you prepare for this new energy in your life, aim to focus on review, meditation, and activities that help you purge or process and release negative energy. As you advance, you’re likely to find yourself at a turning point or experiencing a significant shift. This eclipse is part of a series that began in the summer and ends next December. During this period, you’re reinventing yourself in a meaningful way, getting in touch with your personal power and independence. You’re making changes to how you approach the world, and as you do, you’ll find that you attract different experiences and people into your life. Also today, mental energy is building. You’re attracted to situations that are engaging or promise movement, learning, and new ideas. There can be extra courage to express your feelings or opinions.
CapricornToday’s Solar Eclipse emphasizes the need to look within, dear Capricorn. Important themes revolving around whether you’re attending to a healthy work-rest balance are emerging this eclipse season. Your hunches are powerful and hard to ignore, and feelings that come to you seemingly out of the blue or through dreams can change your outlook and push you along an entirely new path. Rest is in order, but so is mindful attention to your tasks and chores. The trick will be to find the right balance. You’re not exactly putting everything on hold, but there’s a call to take more time for yourself to recharge. Nevertheless, this eclipse helps motivate you to deal with the past or private matters, let go of things you no longer need, and attend to your mental and emotional wellness. It’s a great time to clear the decks. Also today, your confidence in your ideas gets a boost. You can be especially creative and ready to put dreams into motion. Pursuits that combine imagination with action can be very beneficial now. You may want to express yourself, but you could prefer to do so indirectly with the Moon still in the hidden sector of your solar chart.
AquariusGoals that involve joining or strengthening ties in a group project or activity, networking, and making connections are highly favored after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Aquarius. There is a strong desire to break with the past and to start anew. Changes are in the works for your social life, hopes, dreams, or community involvement. This trend first emerged in the summer and will continue to develop for another year. If you’ve been pursuing a project on your own, you might now recognize the need to delegate tasks, collaborate, or start something brand new. The change is likely to be an empowering one, even if your first instinct is to resist it. With eclipses, sometimes we have to let go of something–and often, this is simply an idea or preconception–before we fully embrace moving on. A fresh start is possible when it comes to a friendship or group connection. The people and causes with which you align may be evolving. Also today, you’re ready to sort out problems. You may be seeking intellectual stimulation or drawing up plans for a new project. Collaboration or a friendly activity can be rewarding.
PiscesToday’s Solar Eclipse marks a period ahead when there can be some new responsibilities, recognition, or a new position or project, dear Pisces. You might come into the limelight in some manner now, or you’ll find others are noticing you for your performance and actions. There can be the need to follow the rules or straighten out an area of your life. Changes in goals, plans, and priorities may be necessary. Taking the lead or receiving more attention than usual might initially feel uncomfortable. However, as you begin to believe in yourself and have confidence in your abilities in the weeks ahead, you’re likely to enjoy the momentum. Also today, you can feel motivated to move forward on plans or enhance and improve your business, career, or reputation. While it’s still a bit too early to push forward, you’re filling with ideas. Friendships benefit from the sharing of ideas, ideals, and encouragement. You have more courage to express your feelings.
