Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesSaturn moves into your social sector today, dear Aries, and in just two days, Jupiter will do the same. These major sign changes encourage special attention to friends, groups, community, and hopes/wishes. You got a hint of this Saturn transit earlier this year for only a few months, but now it’ll stick with you until March 2023. It’s a period of scrutinizing, authenticating, and putting to the test your social life and happiness goals. You’ll either make dreams a reality or put them behind you. You’ll see your connections and projects more clearly, although sometimes sternly. You’ll learn to give to others what you want to receive from them. You might discover that some of your associations are no longer in line with your current path. Some connections or means of connecting may be breaking down while others strengthen. Feelings of lack in your social life can magnify, prompting changes. It’s a good time for establishing long-lasting ties, but you may deal with some disillusionments or adjustments. However, you’re also less vulnerable to self-delusion, which helps you make the right choices and decisions. Today’s transits remind you of your need for clear happiness goals.
TaurusSaturn heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, and Jupiter will follow suit in just two days. These events mark the beginning of a long-term trend in which your career and broader life goals become a high priority or area of focus. Circumstances conspire to remind you of the importance of structure, responsibility, credibility, and reputation in the coming years. You might make changes such that your career path better reflects the principles closest to your heart. The Saturn cycle that lasts until March 2023 is a cycle for really putting in the work. Jupiter here will be with you for much of 2021, helping you acclimate to the change. You may feel driven to prove or achieve something substantial during this period. You may be called to task, and rewards come from hard work, solid effort, sincerity, and respect or humbleness. It’s not a time for getting too caught up in your own press. Aim to learn what you can do and embrace reality if unrealistic goals have been slowing your progress. You might re-evaluate your professional standing, responsibilities, and outward signs of success. Now is your chance to build a secure foundation in your professional or most public life. Today, the Moon moves into this same area of your solar chart, and you’re especially aware of your duties and reputation.
GeminiSaturn heads into your solar ninth house today, dear Gemini, and Jupiter will follow suit in two days. With both major planets moving in harmony with your sign in the next while, your outlook strengthens. These transits point to a generally more stable, predictable, and practical time for you. You’re inspired to build something slowly and carefully. It’s also a valuable time to learn practical skills and brush up on your knowledge. There can be important accomplishments in publishing or education on the horizon. The need to make productive use of your time is rising, especially with learning endeavors and long-term goals. You recognize the benefits of concentrating, focusing, and specializing now and in the future. With a more reliable connection to reality, a firmer grip on your priorities, and a better attitude towards meeting your responsibilities, your decisions improve. Saturn will transit this area of your chart until March 2023. You’ll be learning more about your belief systems and personal philosophy during this cycle, although there can be some disillusionment to deal with in the process. Today’s energies are good for your confidence and outlook.
CancerAfter an almost three-year stay, Saturn leaves your partnership sector today, moving away from its opposition to your sign, dear Cancer. Saturn won’t return to this area of your chart for another twenty-six years. There can be a sense of relief or release now. Saturn now turns your attention to financial and intimate arrangements, but the shift taking place now takes the direct pressure off, and it can improve your vitality considerably. Saturn transiting your intimacy sector starts today and lasts until March 2023. However, in a rare turn of events, Jupiter will move into the same sector in just two days, helping ease you into this new stage. You could be making some changes in the structure of your relationships. There can be a new, deep, consuming relationship or project for some. There is likely to be more emphasis on deeper, more meaningful relationships with others and some pulling back from team or group settings in the coming period. It’s also a powerful time to get into deeper touch with yourself, inner desires, fears, addictions, and vulnerabilities. There may be a change in support, financial or otherwise, that requires adjustments. You’re challenged to tidy up and manage those things you share with others (money, resources, power) as well as matters of dependence and intimacy. It’s a good time to work on a plan to reduce debt. As you discover that you can live without certain things or as you adapt to changing circumstances, you build a stronger relationship with yourself. Today, emotions run a little more deeply than usual. You’re more inclined to observe than to jump into action.
LeoSaturn moves into your partnership sector today, dear Leo, and Jupiter will do the same in just two days. While Jupiter will stick around here for much of 2021, Saturn will transit this relationship-oriented area of your solar chart until March 2023. Saturn’s influence can put some pressure on committed relationships. It’s also traveling opposite your sign, and you could feel that others, or life itself, demands a little more from you than usual. There may be the question of whether or not to commit to someone, or a current relationship may encounter some tests, particularly if it’s been limiting or confining you. This transit helps you get to a better understanding of your relationships and partnering needs. It might stimulate a stronger desire for long-term, real connections, or it may bring a more mature or serious partner into your life. While problem areas in a relationship can magnify, eventually, clarity comes. Decisions are more comfortable when you can see people and things both for their strengths and their weaknesses. It’s a powerful period for commitments since you’ll be getting a strong sense of who and what is best for you. Today’s Moon encourages togetherness and running ideas by others. You’re in a better position to see where your life is out of balance.
VirgoSaturn leaves your sector of fun, creativity, and romance today, dear Virgo, and heads into the work and health sector for a stay until March 2023. You had a hint of this energy from March through June, and now it’s here more consistently. This influence can sometimes feel restrictive, but it encourages you to firm up your routines and add more structure to your daily life. It’s all about building some boundaries and disciplining yourself. Responsibilities to your work, health routines, or daily chores can magnify. It can be a time to take a no-nonsense approach to work and health. Aim to make changes Saturn-style: slowly, responsibly, and conservatively. The goal now is to make improvements that last years, if not a lifetime. Saturn wants you to work smarter, not necessarily harder. In just two days, Jupiter moves into this same sector, helping you enjoy yourself and ease into this new phase. You might begin new regimens to better your health and well-being. It’s a convenient cycle if you’ve been scattering your energies. Today, the Moon heads into the same sector of your solar chart, and your heart’s in your work and duties.
LibraSaturn moves into your solar fifth house today, dear Libra, encouraging you to bring more structure to your creative projects or leisure time in the next while. Meeting responsibilities becomes a whole lot easier and natural for you with this long-term influence that is with you until March 2023. You had a hint of this from March through June. Now, Saturn leaves your family and home sector for the long term, moving away from a stressful aspect to your sign, releasing pressure. If you haven’t been feeling very comfortable or settled lately, this situation eases tremendously now. In the period ahead of you, a hobby can be more consuming, or you could pay special attention to children or creative enterprises. You’re likely to see a more serious side of your relationships, projects, and undertakings. You might draw up new and improved plans for reaching your goals. Someone or a relationship may inspire you to get your life into better shape. With Saturn moving in harmony to your sign, this can be a stable and responsible period of your life overall. You’ll be getting serious, organized, and smart about your romantic life, the ways you express your creativity, and how/what you seek regarding entertainment and recreation. Creative expression, pleasure, dating, romance, children, and hobbies are areas of belt-tightening, realism, tests, commitments, and increased discipline. Today, the Moon heads into this same sector, and you’re more inclined to answer to your needs for self-expression and fun.
ScorpioSaturn heads into your home and family sector today, dear Scorpio, and Jupiter will follow suit in just two days. This move pulls these planets out of harmony with your sign and into a position of challenge. Still, Saturn moving on can alleviate some of the pressure or inhibition you may have felt with your everyday affairs or general outlook in recent years. From now and until March 2023, matters related to the home, family, personal, and nurturing might require increased discipline, realism, tradition, and structure. You’ll need to bring more order to your domestic world or personal life. Outworn systems may break down now, and it’s time to rebuild. Saturn favors careful, responsible, slow-but-sure moves. Domestic duties and obligations to your family may seem on the increase. You might adopt a “back to basics” approach that helps you restructure and organize your home life. With today’s Moon transit, you’re in a good place today to take stock and rest up before moving ahead.
SagittariusSaturn moves into harmony with your sign and your solar third house today, dear Sagittarius. This transit lasts until March 2023 and is a stabilizing one, favoring skills development and structured learning. As you move forward, you’ll be communicating with more authority and earning more respect for matters of the mind. You’ll also be getting your daily life into better order. This move takes some of the pressure off in business, with money, and regarding practical affairs as Saturn leaves your solar second house, this time for years to come. You’re learning the value of choosing your words more carefully and waiting for strategic moments to express yourself. Sometimes, after holding back opinions or concerns until you’ve genuinely processed them, you may no longer find it wise to express them at all. It can be a time of heavy study or more serious personal interests. Increased daily responsibilities or commitments are likely. You might gravitate to more in-depth or useful conversations, perhaps feeling impatient with more superficial connections and topics, which now seem more distracting than interesting. Today’s Moon encourages your desire for mental stimulation.
CapricornSaturn, your planetary ruler, moves out of your sign today, dear Capricorn, this time for the long-term. You’re likely to feel freer and less pressured. Now that Saturn is transiting your resources sector until March 2023, you’re getting a little more serious about money. You’re likely to see the solid benefits of work you’ve done in the past. It’s an important period for a more responsible and realistic approach to money and possessions. As you declutter, reduce waste, simplify, and make better use of your resources, you put yourself in a more empowered position. You’re also bound to get a better sense of your assets, including your natural talents. Financial success can be slow but steady. Look for overlapping or unnecessary expenses and other redundancies. Today, the Moon heads into the same area of your solar chart, encouraging you to seek out a predictable, steady pace rather than jump into something new.
AquariusSaturn first entered your sign earlier this year for a few months, dear Aquarius, before retreating to finish up its transit of your solar twelfth house. On December 17th, it enters Aquarius for the long haul (until March 2023). Saturn is all about order and structure. Its transit of your sign builds your credibility and confidence, even if it doesn’t always feel like it along the way. You’re on your way to a more realistic understanding of your capabilities and limits. Helping you along is Jupiter, heading into your sign in just two days. The cosmos wants you to be more responsible, and you’re sure to learn that there are many benefits from choosing this path. This can be a time of increased personal responsibilities, attention to detail, and efforts to maintain and improve health and personal affairs. The challenge is to become more efficient with your energy and time. It’s a cycle for learning which habits and attitudes are working for you and which ones should be left behind. Since too-high expectations have a way of producing guilt, this reality check is useful. It’s not about underselling yourself. Instead, it’s a time for redefining goals so that they are more realistic and doable. Today, the Moon moves into your sign, encouraging you to connect with your emotional needs.
PiscesSaturn heads into your privacy sector today, dear Pisces, and in just two days, Jupiter will do the same. These pivotal events draw your attention inward, not just now, but in the months ahead. Saturn is here until 2023, signaling the need or desire to take better care of yourself on a spiritual level, which may involve putting an end to situations that have crossed reasonable boundaries. However, Jupiter encourages you to enjoy your private time. It’s a time of spiritual renovation, clean-up, and better attention to mental health. These transits challenge you to take care of unfinished business, as well as to regroup, process, and heal. You’ll be ridding yourself of regrets or perceived failures and disappointments as a Saturn-Sun cycle enters its last leg before coming full circle in March 2023 (when Saturn will begin its transit of your sign). It’s an important cycle of contemplation and spiritual renovation, and it’s a time for facing your inner demons and tackling the vague fears that undermine you. You may be attracted to alternative ways of living and self-study fields. You are in a great position to evaluate whether you are getting enough time for adequate sleep, rest, and reflection. Today, the Moon heads into this same sector of your solar chart, encouraging an inward focus.
