Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is a better time for planning and developing than for new endeavors, dear Aries. You’re in great shape to observe, imagine, and plan. Investing time and energy into these things can ultimately be very worthwhile. These days, you’re more aware of your impact on the world, what you contribute, and how you measure up. Responsibilities to others are in the spotlight. Today, you may wrestle with a bit of doubt. If someone seems to be undermining you, know that it stems from their insecurities, and perhaps they’re trying to get a rise out of you only to feed their own need for attention. You can feel more sensitive than usual if you now doubt recent choices, but it’s temporary. Allow yourself some time to reorient yourself.
TaurusThe Sun’s mission for you these days is to encourage you to explore and discover new things, dear Taurus. It’s a great time to feel passionately about a personal interest, topic, or idea. In the coming weeks, you can be that much more adventurous in your quest for experience and learning. Changes are in the air, and they seem quite positive, but you can be experiencing some self-doubt today. It’s a useful process, even though it can feel a little deflating initially. There are solutions to problems on the horizon but aim to exercise some patience for things to materialize. Your intuition will be back on track shortly. Observe, process, and avoid going along with something if your heart isn’t in it. Also today, you might take a special interest in a person who has a problem or is otherwise troubled. The Moon is in your sign all day, pushing emotions to the surface for immediate handling. Keep your mind and options open.
GeminiThe Sun is currently encouraging a focus on intimate matters and behind-the-scenes activities in your life, dear Gemini. You may be seeking some form of self-transformation. Don’t be afraid to explore the darker corners of your psyche with self-discovery and self-honesty goals in mind. A Sun-Chiron square influences today, and problems with boundaries in relationships or doubts about recent choices can emerge. It’s not an ideal day for bold actions and sweeping decisions or statements. Keeping a low profile until you sort things out is preferable, especially with the Moon in the sign behind yours. You are aware of so many choices and possibilities that making a decision is almost painful. In all likelihood, it can wait!
CancerThe need for a better balance in your life is in stronger focus these days, dear Cancer. At this time of the year, your path to fulfillment involves learning more about important people in your life. At the same time, you’re bound to discover a lot about yourself through your interactions. Still, the Sun heads toward a square to Chiron today, and there can be some level of confusion, perhaps mostly inside you. It’s all expected to lead to something very positive, but it can throw you off temporarily. Fortunately, some moments of hesitation or doubt can ultimately do you a service. Take your time while confidence dips, and pay special attention to whatever might trigger fears or insecurities now. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, and your heart is with your friends or cherished dreams and wishes.
LeoThe Sun’s mission for you these days is to encourage you to pay more attention to your daily routines, work, and self-care efforts, dear Leo. You take more pride in what you’re doing, improving performance. A Sun-Chiron challenge influencing today can point to a small motivation dip on these levels, but it’s temporary. You might find yourself extra sensitive to your surroundings and others’ commentary. While you sense a need for changes and improvements, a solid plan can elude you, but things will come together shortly. However, you’re generous with your affection, and while the same old grievances could be resurfacing, you’re seeking different solutions.
VirgoThe current solar cycle inspires you in your creative efforts, relationships, projects, and romance, dear Virgo. It’s a good time to pay more attention to personal hobbies or recreation and entertainment. Expressing yourself is a stronger desire these days. However, with the Sun heading to a square to Chiron today, ambiguities can figure strongly. You could be battling cosmic energy that feels a little clogged, but consider that it’s a temporary dip. Peaks and valleys are natural, and this dip can prompt a valuable rethink or change. If you find yourself questioning a recent endeavor or plan, pace yourself so that stress is minimal. It can be an animated day, one in which you can be an entertained observer.
LibraYour personal life is taking on more power these days, dear Libra, with the Sun’s current mission to encourage special attention to matters of the home, family, and the heart. Most rewarding are activities that help you feel more secure and content. Today, however, doubts can surface or assume more importance, rising to the surface. There’s a general tendency for people to be so rooted in their issues that they can’t see things clearly. A small dip in your confidence may help you reconnect with your true needs, or it can stimulate you to make a powerful change or refinement. Taking some private time can be very beneficial today, especially if you enjoy some research or an in-depth project as you do.
ScorpioThe Sun’s current transit finds you focusing more on learning, sharing, and connecting, dear Scorpio. While it’s a mostly lighthearted period, the Sun conflicts with Chiron right now, and people tend to be stuck in their issues temporarily. You may need to deal with some doubt before pressing forward. Just for now, it can be hard to make sense of the signals you’re receiving from others. Do what you can to muster up not only patience but trust that things will right themselves with just a little time. Aim to give yourself some time to recharge if feeling a little drained or indecisive. Today’s energies can be favorable for enjoying others and connecting if you aim to live in the moment without rigid expectations.
SagittariusThe Sun’s current transit of your financial and values sector often puts the focus on material affairs and comfort issues, dear Sagittarius. Security is a driving force behind many of your choices and decisions these days. Today, the Sun is challenged, and there can be some confusion over boundaries or differences in values that are temporary but frustrating. Solutions seem out of reach, or you’re too tired to think of them. However, brief periods such as these when you’re a bit downcast or skeptical can ultimately fill you with more courage, mainly because you quickly tire of feeling vulnerable. Take your time with big decisions until you’re feeling back to normal.
CapricornThis time of year is typically good for making changes that shape your life, dear Capricorn, with the Sun in your sign until January 19th. With the Sun heading toward a square to Chiron, you may feel a little low before you find new reasons for motivation. This transit suggests a bit of faltering before more confident times. You might be especially sensitive with family or personal matters today, or you could find that something triggers your vulnerabilities and sets you a little off track. It’s temporary, however. In fact, you may very well need a break. Fortunately, you have the Moon in your sector of joy all day. There is power in your imagination and dreams, and letting these things flow helps you out now.
AquariusWith the Sun currently transiting your solar twelfth house, dear Aquarius, it’s a good idea to set a little extra time for yourself to rest, reflect, digest, and process. In the weeks ahead, it’s a good idea to review the past year and decide what to carry forward with you into the new year. The Sun is heading into conflict with Chiron today, however, and communications can quickly go awry as they are sometimes misunderstood. It may be best to postpone important discussions temporarily until you feel clearer and stronger. Mind you, pushing yourself above your insecurities can be worth the effort. Another sign that you need some downtime is the Moon’s transit of your home and family sector all day. Familiarity is your tonic for the time being.
PiscesThe Sun’s current mission in your solar chart is to connect you with your need for friends or community and dreams or wishes, dear Pisces. While this transit is a supportive one, today requires some reorientation. Doubt or fears about what you can handle can emerge, or you can feel temporarily a little drained or indecisive. This is likely to be a fleeting feeling, and although it may not seem productive, if you examine why you are feeling this way, you might discover something important about yourself. Sometimes a dip is what you need before taking off. Today’s Moon transit helps you open the airways, communicate, and encourage others to do so as well.
