Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt’s not yet the time for making big decisions, dear Aries, with your ruler, Mars, still retrograde, and Jupiter only just entering your sign. However, things are looking up. Jupiter in your sign until mid-May is a cycle of independence and liberation. Feeling a tad in the dumps as shifts occur today is quite normal and might even help you to aim higher later. However, this cycle brings high energy, confidence, and a real sense of immediacy. The urge for freedom and discovery is powerful in your life as you advance. Opportunities for expanding your life experience should be abundant. New ideas and interests can be exciting. You naturally put more faith in yourself and your capabilities in the months ahead.
TaurusTidying up areas of your life that may be causing you guilt or dread can be useful these days, dear Taurus, and you’re getting cosmic support for this. Soon, Chiron will turn direct in your solar twelfth house, and today, Jupiter heads into this sector of your solar chart. Helping others or learning new things can be especially pleasurable. Until May 16th, you’ll be building your strength in privacy, doing things for others, making some personal sacrifices that benefit you, and getting in better touch with your inner needs. This transit brings opportunities and increased joy to your private world and behind-the-scenes activities. Your compassion heightens, and you’re building your faith. This transit is a spiritual protector of sorts, and it’s an excellent influence for enjoying your own company, gaining more peace, trusting your intuition, and doing good deeds.
GeminiJupiter moves into your friendship sector today, dear Gemini, and will continue there until mid-May, helping you find more joy and satisfaction in your social life. Friendships or group associations seem more robust, and you’re more influential and charming with others during this cycle. You’ll feel increasingly better equipped to deal with problem areas, especially with Chiron’s direct turn in a few days and Mars, rulers of your friendship sector, turning direct on January 12th. It’s a great time to access your team spirit and an excellent period for making connections, sharing your expertise with associates, and reaching out to new friends.
CancerJupiter heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, to finish its two-parter transit. This cycle, lasting until mid-May, motivates you to shoot a little higher with your goals. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation stand to improve, grow, and develop. You’ll be attracting good favor and pursuing your interests confidently. These themes will improve further after the end of the Mars retrograde cycle in mid-January. For now, you’re revving up and building plans. Jupiter will bring fresh energy to your professional life. It’s a great time to present projects or methods and expand your business. Because it’s the ruler of your work sector, you are likely to gain recognition for the work you do or have done.
LeoJupiter moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Leo, helping lift your spirits as you tune into the bigger picture and gain perspective. You’re more optimistic and confident with this transit that will stick with you until mid-May. There can be new opportunities to learn, publish, communicate, or promote. It’s not that life becomes less stressful – you become less stressed with life! It’s all about your perspective, and it’s a panoramic view during this cycle. It’s an excellent period for extra-curricular, non-routine activities that expand your life experience. It’s also a time when your love life could take a more exotic turn – your tastes alter, and you might meet someone from an entirely different culture or background. Existing relationships get a boost. The more active and obviously beneficial elements of this transit will be more apparent after Mars turns direct in January. Aim for quality learning and challenge yourself to increase your knowledge and understanding of the world around you now.
VirgoYour intimacy and shared assets sector is ruled by Mars, and Mars is still retrograde until January 12th, dear Virgo. However, Jupiter moves into this area of your solar chart today, and it will stick around until mid-May, bringing wonderful benefits. There can be financial gain, deepened relationships or more joy in an intimate relationship, and a generally easier time attracting moral or economic support in the months ahead. You’re connecting with your deeper needs more fully. The cycle is excellent for emotional and material support (but please don’t borrow too much!) and for opening yourself up to intimacy and sharing. Some will be merging bank accounts during this cycle, or a whole new source of money can arise in your life outside of salary. Today, with Jupiter traveling the last degree of Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, take things slowly.
LibraJupiter moves back into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, where it will stay until mid-May. This influence can boost close relationships or connect you with helpful people. Because Mars, the ruler of your partnership sector, is currently retrograde, you may not feel the good vibes full-on just yet. However, resolutions are in the works for long-standing problems. Jupiter is the planet of faith, luck, and growth, and with it in the sign of Aries, we enjoy competition as it pushes us to do better. However, there can be a me-first energy to this transit, and since Aries is your opposite sign, there can be times you’ll be shaking your head at what’s going on around you! You could feel that the rest of the world is appreciating the very qualities you are NOT. However, when Jupiter transits an opposite sign, relationships can improve for that sign, which is something to look forward to. This cycle brings plenty of opportunities to socialize and strong powers of negotiation to your life.
ScorpioJupiter moves back into your solar sixth house this month, dear Scorpio, and until mid-May, the motivation to improve your health, daily habits, work, and routines increases. Finding more joy and satisfaction in your daily affairs can figure strongly during this period. Things will improve further after Mars, the ruler of this sector in your solar chart, turns direct on January 12th. In the months ahead, there can be wonderful benefits along the lines of health, fitness, daily routines, employment, and even pets! It can also bring more money from the job you do. The only caution here is to avoid overloading your plate with work or new routines, as the tendency is to feel like you can handle more than is reasonable. Fortunately, you’re investing more pride and finding more joy in your work or daily routines. Self-improvement endeavors can be particularly enjoyable and successful.
SagittariusYour ruling planet, Jupiter, heads back into Aries this month, dear Sagittarius, and it’s exciting! Aries is a sister fire sign, and with it now moving in harmony with your sign, you feel more in your element. Until mid-May, you’ll be finding more ways to enjoy yourself. Hobbies, romance, or leisure pursuits can be more fulfilling and strong draw. This transit will be even more rewarding after Aries’ ruler, Mars, turns direct on January 12th. Still, Jupiter brings much-improved (and perhaps much needed) elements of fun into your life. Romance, pleasure, hobbies, creativity, children – these are all areas of life that receive a shot in the arm of warm energy. This transit can often find you in hot pursuit of pleasure, and many avenues will open up for you to do so.
CapricornWhile the ruler of your home and family sector, Mars, will be retrograde until January, dear Capricorn, this sector of your solar chart is beginning to enliven. Jupiter moves in for a visit until mid-May, and it’s excellent for upgrades and enhancements with your home, family, and personal life. The months ahead are strong for improving bonds with loved ones and enhancing or expanding the home. It’s a time for truly connecting with whatever it is that feeds your inner spirit and fills your well on an emotional level. Attention to physical and emotional comforts is strong now, and your need for self-care and nurturing magnifies. You can find more joy in domestic activities. In fact, emotional and personal experiences hold far more appeal than worldly pursuits at this time. You’ll be building your emotional base and striving towards an overall feeling of being centered and anchored.
AquariusWhile the ruler of your communications sector, Mars, will remain retrograde until January, dear Aquarius, there are signs of forward progress. Jupiter enters this sector of your solar chart today, where it will visit until mid-May. It’s an excellent period for building up your skills–you’re excited to learn new things and share your ideas and interests. You might increase your studies or pick up a significant new interest. You can be more involved in communications of various kinds. In truth, your thought patterns are changing now – you focus more on positive thinking and leave behind negative or limiting ways of processing things. You’ll more thoroughly enjoy sharing your knowledge and ideas with others in the months ahead. You’re likely to increase contact and find it quite pleasant to do so.
PiscesJupiter moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Pisces, and this time, it’s really moving on. The period ahead, until May 16th, is good for slowly but surely getting in touch with new goals and aspirations that are truly and deeply motivating. Influences are strengthening for your money and belongings and, on a psychological level, your self-worth and value. The months ahead are excellent for building on existing resources, a business, or a project and enjoying the rewards of your past efforts. Ideally, you’ve had a real taste for increased freedom and found ways to express this need. As you advance, Jupiter will be expanding your resources, which can mean expanding your pocketbook and your sense of what you’re worth. You are no longer as hyped on the concept of freedom as you take more interest in security and comfort.
