Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun begins its transit of your sector of career and reputation today, dear Aries, pushing your ambitions to the front burner in the month ahead. It’s a strong period for taking charge of your life and focusing on your long-term goals. You’re taking the lead. You’re also more accountable and noticeable than usual. Assuming more responsibilities can be part of this, or it’s a time for tapping into your ambitions and a goal-oriented approach. You can come to a high point of the year in your career or reputation. People in positions of power are more likely to notice and listen to you. Improving your life and rising to challenges can be satisfying in the coming weeks. Today, however, there can be some resistance or blocks that hint it’s probably not yet the best time to push forward and enforce your will. Adjustments are necessary as the Sun, newly at the top of your chart, and Jupiter, newly in your sign, form a tense square. Tensions can stem from impatience with rules and regulations or a desire to go your own way when the world seems to want something else! Missing details or overshooting can lead to errors. Try to center yourself, as the tendency is to scatter your attention and energies, which can work against you. The potential for going over the top runs high right now. For best results, avoid exaggeration and arrogance.
TaurusThe Sun moves into your spirit sector today, dear Taurus, where it will transit in the month ahead. Until January 20th, you’re in perfect shape for learning new things, exploring different ideas and topics, sharing ideas, and discovering new ways to express yourself. This transit turns your attention to your broader life-affirming goals. On some level, you can feel re-awakened with the Sun bringing you out of yourself and into the light. You might search for greater meaning and richer experiences in the weeks ahead. Anything that expands your understanding of the world around you appeals more than usual now. Today, though, you can feel torn between downtime and learning or extracurricular activities. Jupiter has just moved into your privacy sector and clashes with the Sun today. It’s possible you feel overwhelmed temporarily. Restlessness or boredom can be at the root of mistakes or poor choices under this influence, although they might only lead to distraction. You are more inclined than usual to go overboard helping someone or doing things for others, and then find little time to attend to the rest of your life. Aim to get in better touch with your true desires before taking action.
GeminiThe Sun begins its transit of your intimacy sector, dear Gemini, where it will travel until January 20th. This cycle stirs your desire to connect with your more profound emotions. It also awakens your interest in meaningful and absorbing relationships or projects. The coming month favors introspection and developing your intimate or inner world. You tend to pick a focus and pour a lot of energy into it. It can also be a time to face your fears! Self-honesty comes naturally and in handy during this Sun cycle. You’re learning much about your psychology, relationships, and deeper interests. Shared money or resources can be a hot topic. You are more intense in your mood and disposition at this time of year. Today, the Sun and Jupiter clash in new signs/sectors, creating tension as their cycles kick off. A craving for more meaning or excitement in your life can figure strongly. However, overshooting the mark is a strong possibility with today’s transits. Something is premature now. Aim to prioritize or allow yourself some distance from a matter so that you can return to it refreshed and with more objectivity.
CancerThe Sun begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Cancer, where it will spotlight your relationships for a month. You are more conciliatory, ready to compromise, and diplomatic at this time of the year. Through feedback, you gain a more holistic view of yourself and your life. Until January 20th, you see things from two sides. You’re more aware of imbalances and eager to restore order to your life. It’s a time for making adjustments and compromises as you achieve a better life balance. You might recognize the need for a different perspective on your life. A project may bloom now, and you’re turning a corner, looking for new interests or things to do. Today, restlessness can either motivate you to make improvements or lead you astray! This is due to a Sun-Jupiter square that has a way of showing you where you’re not meeting your expectations. Try not to let impulses rule, as they are unlikely to lead you down the right path. Of course, something good may come of your mood, especially if you avoid overdoing and instead conserve your energy. This way, you’ll have a better idea of your next step.
LeoWhile Jupiter just changed signs and sent you on a mission to add more extra-curricular activities to your life, dear Leo, the Sun moves into your work and health sector, reminding you of the importance of routines. With this new Sun transit that lasts until January 20th, you can be busy getting your life into better order. Taking charge of your work and health routines is rewarding now as you awaken to a need to lead a more organized, productive, and healthier lifestyle. Getting organized and enjoying what you do can naturally lead to improvements and updates to those systems in your life that have fallen out of alignment. Focusing on self-improvement through self-care programs can be especially useful at this time of the year. Today, the clash between Jupiter and the Sun is in full force. The day seems to challenge you to break out of a rut or pattern preventing you from growing. Aim to be mindful, for if you act out without self-awareness, you may be taking risks, overpaying, or jumping into (or leaving) something too quickly. You may want to do it all today, but a moderate approach makes better sense.
VirgoA month-long cycle begins today that emphasizes pleasure and creative self-expression, dear Virgo. It can inspire you creatively and emotionally–you pay more attention to personal hobbies or recreation and entertainment. A stronger urge is with you to create, put talents to use, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and partake of many of life’s pleasures. It’s a time for expressing and enjoying yourself! Just yesterday, Jupiter moved into a far less playful or spontaneous area of your solar chart, and the clash between these two new themes in your life is strong today. With a Sun-Jupiter square today, problems tend to come from overestimating your (or life’s) capabilities, overblown egos, or overblown expectations. Your eyes open to areas of life that need improvement, and your best bet will be to get excited about making changes. At the same time, resist the urge to rebel or react impulsively if things are not going as expected.
LibraThe Sun begins its transit of your home and family sector today, where it will transit until January 20th, dear Libra. This Sun cycle encourages a stronger focus on your domestic world. It’s also a natural time for anchoring on a psychological level. Improving your home and feelings of safety, security, and comfort are in the spotlight. Family and loved ones can motivate you to succeed, build, and organize. You’re seeking more quiet, downtime, comfort, and familiarity in the weeks ahead. You’re also taking more pride in your home or family, making it a great time to focus on improvements. Today, a Sun-Jupiter square can play with your mood, however. Your expectations can leave you vulnerable to mood swings if you’ve set them too high. It’s best not to rely on someone’s promises. With your instincts telling you one thing and people in your life telling you another, decision-making can be difficult today. It may be better to take things easy.
ScorpioThe Sun begins its transit of your communications sector today, dear Scorpio, where it will stay until January 20th. In the coming weeks, curiosity motivates you to connect and learn more than usual. It’s a great time to put your feelers out! You’re picking up new skills and taking care of everyday affairs. You’re communicating with people more frequently during this busy, engaged period. It’s a time of increased awareness of what needs to be repaired, healed, and improved in your immediate environment, communications, and interactions. This transit encourages diverse interests–it’s not necessarily the time to specialize. Try to tune out the distractions from time to time for best results. Today, routine seems to bring out the worst in you, however, as it can remind you of your discontent. Or, you may feel overloaded. While today isn’t ideal for productivity, the stirrings you feel now may prompt you to make valuable changes.
SagittariusThe Sun completes its yearly, month-long transit of your sign today as it starts its tour of your resources sector, dear Sagittarius. This new cycle is a grounding one-you’re shifting gears, and your focus is turning to issues of security and comfort. Money and possessions assume more importance in your life until January 20th. You’re also paying more attention to matters of convenience, enjoyment, and activities that remind you of the simple pleasures in life. You’re looking to make the most of your natural talents and abilities. It’s also a good cycle for exploring what you truly value. Your view of your capabilities is realistic during this stabilizing cycle. Jupiter just began a very different mission–to encourage you to take some healthy risks and enjoy yourself more spontaneously. Today, the difference between these two new themes in your life is strong as the Sun and Jupiter form a square. Instincts for financial matters may be out of step, making it a good idea to postpone big purchases. The temptation to borrow from the future is strong and probably should be tamed. Emotions are up and down, and it’s best not to become swept away by promises.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your sign today, dear Capricorn, and will be your guest until January 20th. You’re in your element with this transit, and you’ve reached the end of a reflective cycle with the Sun finishing up in your privacy sector. It’s a time to shine, reinvent yourself, or come into the light in a meaningful way. You feel more in charge, relevant, and on top of things during this period. Ideally, you’ve had more time to process or digest recent events, and you bring a more rested “you” into a new cycle that puts you in the forefront. You’re likely to want to start fresh. Still, Jupiter has just begun a cycle that encourages more down time and centering. Of course, both cycles can work concurrently, but today, the clash is palpable. It’s temporarily hard to balance what you want to do with what you feel you should do for better physical and mental health. However, it may be precisely what you should be working on right now. A Sun-Jupiter square can stir restlessness, or perhaps more aptly, highlights discontent that’s already present. You may be seeking freedom from restrictions and responsibilities, and this can make some waves. A long-term plan may need adjustments or expectations reined in now.
AquariusThe Sun begins its transit of your solar twelfth house today, where it will stay until January 20th, dear Aquarius. It’s a yearly, month-long cycle suitable for reflection, rest, and recollection. You are gathering your strength for busier times but also reflecting upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. As the final month of the solar cycle, the weeks ahead are excellent for wrapping things up. Extra rest will help balance things out. Use this time to take the load off. Keep in mind that, generally speaking, it’s not the best time to push yourself or your plans, but it’s great for connecting with your dreams, spiritual side, and intuition. It’s the right time for forgiveness and letting go. Today, it can be difficult to discipline yourself with a Sun-Jupiter square active. Both bodies are freshly in new signs, and they bring different themes to your life. This influence can stir restlessness, ideally leading to legitimate efforts to make improvements and bring about better conditions in your life. If not, this aspect can sometimes lead to wastefulness or random indulgences. Aim to take stock of your accomplishments and determine where adjustments may be needed or perhaps whether to change course. While expansion is often the go-to with Jupiter prominent, moderation in your approach will get you further. Aim to think big, but when mapping plans out, be realistic with your expectations.
PiscesThe Sun enters your friendship and dreams sector today, where it will stay until January 20th, dear Pisces. This month-long cycle can be quite supportive and pleasant. It’s a time for focusing on plans, projects, and dreams in which satisfaction and fulfillment are the goals. It’s a period for prioritizing the connections in your life. This new theme pulls your attention to happiness goals and networking. Your need for others or for spending time with people and projects that help you detox emerges. Your mood is more hopeful and positive. Sharing ideals or visions with others gives you a boost, and you get more satisfaction than usual when your actions positively impact others. Today, the Sun and Jupiter form a square aspect, and recent excesses have a way of catching up with you. You can be in a generous mood, but perhaps a little overconfident, and overspending and even overstating can be a problem. Or, feelings of being overwhelmed can lead to some waste or lack of productivity. Expectations are high, but the desire to put forth effort is temporarily low, and this is a big mismatch. It’s not a good time to count on our impressions since an inflated mood can play with our perceptions. However, it’s a good time to think big and stretch your imagination.
