Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe desire to start fresh in the areas of friendships, networking, and happiness goals is strong today, dear Aries. Jupiter and Saturn have just entered your solar eleventh house, and they join forces today, motivating you to build something good for you. This can be the start of an especially practical and useful endeavor, whether it’s social or material–or both! You could very well discover that you’re enjoying your newfound self-discipline or simplification in these life departments. You might form a helpful alliance, make friendships based on a shared interest or philosophy, or otherwise build your connections with the community or a network. You might decide to contribute to your community in significant, tangible, and practical ways. There can be nice opportunities to make long-lasting connections. The Moon heads into your sign later today where it will transit for a couple of days, bringing your emotional needs to life.
TaurusToday’s energies are powerful for lighting a fire under you, dear Taurus. You can feel especially motivated and ready to pursue your ambitions. A fresh start or some restructuring of your goals may be in order. Jupiter and Saturn come together in your solar tenth house–a sector of your chart that rules professional or life-path goals, responsibilities, and reputation. There can be a chance to clinch a project or job. Handling a responsibility can feel great. There can be a career peak of sorts happening for you, and the desire to improve your life through attention to your longer-term goals is strong. This is a fine time to show the world what you can do. Successes can be realized now. A project at which you’ve been working hard can culminate, or a brand new one is in the works. It’s a time of achievement, accomplishment, harvest, and recognition. Later today, however, the Moon slips into your privacy sector for a couple of days, making it appropriate to lay low, reflect, and process before charging ahead.
GeminiJupiter and Saturn, newly in your solar ninth house, join forces today, dear Gemini. You may get the chance to solidify studies, a publishing deal, a special extracurricular activity, or another important matter. It can be a time for specializing or learning something practical and useful. Do take advantage of your discipline and common sense at this time–it’s a potentially powerful time for you to get your life on track or to launch a new, practical initiative. This can also be a period of teaching others what you have learned or starting a long-term effort to connect, share, and guide. You can feel more level-headed, in general, as you meet with strong opportunities to set your life in order. The challenge is to look at life and your future more realistically and practically, and you feel a sense of joy in so doing. Boosting a key relationship through shared activities or finding a key relationship through learning or activities outside of the usual bounds can figure strongly.
CancerJupiter and Saturn just recently moved into your solar eighth house, dear Cancer. Today, they join forces in what’s called a Great Conjunction, sparking the desire to build a better life for yourself, particularly related to relationships and attachments. There may also be a metamorphosis of sorts pertaining to your job, chores, or health. Or, the work you do can transform your lifestyle in a major way. It’s a powerful time of self-discipline and the chance to get things sorted with money, sharing, power dynamics, and attachments. You can find much joy in simplifying these areas of life. You’re productive and committed. You may very well make an important commitment or form a powerful alliance or attachment. You can benefit from some self-discipline in these life departments. It’s a powerful time for positive lifestyle changes–you’re straightening out key areas of your life. It’s also a good time for gaining a supporter or some backing.
LeoJupiter and Saturn just recently entered your partnership sector, dear Leo, and today, they join forces, motivating you to start fresh. Better systems, plans, and goals seem important for your one-to-one relationships with this powerful fresh-start energy. Jupiter expands, and Saturn contracts. In many ways, these energies are opposite in nature. However, when they cooperate or join forces, they motivate you to make things happen–beneficial, practical, and beneficial things! Alliances might form, and partnering matters are strong, committed, and clear. The realization of a goal may seem possible through collaboration or a special person’s support. It could be that a partnership that’s also very practical is forming, or a difficult relationship irons out. You might find ways to enjoy what you’re doing, or at the very least, recognize that you’re growing through it, even as you work on the tougher stuff. Partnering up to work or improve health or meeting a significant someone through work or the pursuit of your health goals can figure strongly.
VirgoJupiter and Saturn just recently moved into your work and health sector, dear Virgo. Today, they meet in what’s called a Great Conjunction, and it’s a time of quite a bit of ambition, common sense, and the ability to materialize your plans. You’re strongly motivated to improve your life, and you’re likely to want to do so through changes to your work, health, habits, or routines. You’re in great shape to get started on a healthy lifestyle change or discipline yourself to get a job done, and done well! Home and family closely tie in with work and health, which can mean you are joining with family to improve health, working from home, or bringing more organization and order to your home. It’s a time of great productivity. You may be working hard but thoroughly enjoying it as you do. You can put a lot of effort into simplifying and structuring your life, particularly your daily routines. You’re happy to discipline yourself, enjoying your work or health pursuits more as you put in the effort.
LibraJupiter and Saturn just recently moved into your solar fifth house, dear Libra. They join forces today, forming what’s called a Great Conjunction. This powerful transit can prompt a new beginning or fresh start, powerfully motivating you to improve your life. While you could be putting in more effort, you enjoy the feeling of being more productive. You might aim to solidify a relationship, combining the responsible and more romantic elements of your interactions very successfully at this time. Instead, you focus on bringing more specialized attention to a special pursuit, hobby, or leisure activity, finding joy in your self-discipline or commitment. You can fill with desire–or circumstances create a need–for structure in fifth house areas of life, including romance, creativity, and recreation. Firming up areas of your life that have become wasteful can benefit you in many ways. This can be a good time for realizing a dream or goal, particularly along creative lines. Instead, you could make a happy commitment to a project or to improving your life. It’s a wonderful time to monetize or solidify a hobby. Hunkering down or committing can be joyful, and in a general sense, it’s a time for feeling balanced and steady.
ScorpioJupiter and Saturn are newly transiting your home and family sector, dear Scorpio. Today, they join forces, bringing the chance to start fresh or reset your life in powerful ways so that you can make improvements. It seems the best way to do so with this Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is to simplify, particularly in your personal life and domestic world, and perhaps enforce new structures or systems. Getting to the bottom of areas of waste or disarray can be in order now. You may need to do some hard work getting things straightened out, but you may very well find yourself enjoying the process! You’re in great shape for self-discipline and effort put forth to make things better. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself. The responsibilities and demands of domestic life can run high, but you’re working towards building a stronger foundation, and it’s a truly beneficial pursuit. You’ll find that your mind unclutters as you simplify and organize the things around you.
SagittariusJupiter and Saturn, newly in your solar third house, join forces today, dear Sagittarius, prompting a desire to start fresh to improve your life. This can be a powerfully ambitious and positive time when you find joy in working hard at your studies or personal interests, perfecting your communications or a project, and learning or sharing ideas and information. You can find happiness and enjoyment by structuring your life with better schedules and daily details management. You’re making more effective use of your time, and it benefits you greatly! With increased practicality and less procrastination, your self-esteem builds. Teaching can be in strong focus. There can be a greater love of the less glamorous aspects of your work, studies, and projects, and you are capable of tremendous effort to further your goals. Your communications can be particularly effective, and your projects can be both satisfying and profitable or rewarding. It’s a strong time for producing and enjoying it as you do! You might start a major new project, or a personal interest comes into play. You’re motivated to improve your life through your studies and projects.
CapricornThe desire to build your resources and make better use of your talents is strong now, dear Capricorn, as Jupiter and Saturn meet in your solar second house. You’re in great shape for self-discipline and efforts to realize a goal or dream related to money, things, talents, and personal income. Perhaps most importantly, your relationship with money and resources is changing. Your sense of abundance can evolve as well, as you see more value in what you have or identify things that are no longer boosting your sense of security. You are exceptionally security-minded at this time and you can begin or step up savings plans. Your positive attitude works wonders now. Your sense of joy through increased responsibility and the feeling of being on top of things can help you succeed. Simplifying and getting rid of the things you don’t need, including expenses, can be most satisfying now.

This influence can help you to actualize dreams, as Jupiter and Saturn working together can help bring plans to life. You seek a new beginning or a fresh start, and your desire to do right is powerful. This can be a time of great opportunity–you’re especially productive, ambitious, and effective, but you’re open to simplifying. You can find pleasure and joy in exercising more self-discipline and initiative. Your efforts to discipline yourself or structure your life can be satisfying and rewarding. Aim to strengthen your life and build your endurance and patience. A significant new project can emerge now.
PiscesJupiter’s alignment with Saturn today occurs in your solar twelfth house, dear Pisces. With self-discipline, you find more joy and confidence. You can be extremely productive–it can be a time to work on a project in advance of a launch date or of putting a long-term project behind you. Your career may involve work behind the scenes, or it’s a time of doing a lot of processing–a hatching stage for an endeavor, perhaps. You’re likely to find more joy, pleasure, and confidence in caring for your spiritual needs. Your increased self-discipline with getting rest, mental replenishment, and feeding your spirit feels good and benefits you greatly. You’ll get to a better place of self-understanding. If a long-time problem has been keeping you awake at night or otherwise undermining you, this can be a time when you put it behind you so that you can reclaim your happiness.
