Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith today’s Sun-Jupiter trine, you’re quick to find reasons to enjoy yourself, dear Aries. This influence connects your work and resources sectors, inspiring enthusiasm for a project, business, or financial matter, and hurdles seem smaller as a result. You’re also in the right place to ask for what you want and present your ideas. Thinking up long-term plans can be fun and valuable now. Enthusiasm for a project, particularly a practical or business-related one, is building! People are interested in what you do. Cooperation seems more straightforward than usual with this kind of breezy energy. Even so, a Mercury-Mars alignment occurs now that has a way of resurrecting problems from the past with Mercury retrograde, and there is a tendency to make sudden moves or to speak too soon about a matter. You can very quickly get yourself into a heated debate that gets personal. Keep in mind that we may be speaking without thinking (or feeling). Try not to live so much in the brain that your sensitivity to emotions dulls today, as there is a real tendency to do so, but tap into the excitement of this transit to break through problems so that it’s clear to move on.
TaurusToday’s energies shine for exploring a topic or working on a project intently, dear Taurus. There may be some focus on sharing resources or borrowing money. A Sun-Jupiter transit brings upbeat feelings. You’re calmer and more composed than usual. There can be enthusiasm about your interests, a piece of news, or promising prospects. Recognition for work you did in the past or excitement about revising a favorite dream/plan can be themes. You look at the world around you, yourself, and situations with building confidence and positivity. Today, people see your best qualities in a favorable (or new and improved) light. It’s a good time to get noticed in all the right ways. Nevertheless, there is somewhat tense energy with us mentally today as retrograde Mercury aligns with Mars. This influence can rile you up to solve problems, and while it can motivate you to handle a nagging problem that’s been blocking your path, watch for trying to rush this too fast. New ideas and old issues can keep your mind racing. You can be especially busy reviewing previous work, researching ideas for future plans and goals, or doing editing activities. Be firm and genuine in your dealings with others, but avoid hasty words and moves.
GeminiYou can be strongly attracted to what’s beneath the surface or hidden from sight today, dear Gemini, and you can delight in trying to solve a mystery or figuring something out. You feel particularly confident with your private feelings and needs or with close relationships (or both) as the Sun forms a trine with Jupiter. It becomes far more comfortable to resolve emotional dilemmas or predicaments, or, if not fix, make peace with your problems. You may share a burden, secret, or problem now. Some form of satisfying release may arrive for issues weighing heavily on you. This is a time to see the hidden layers or elements of a situation to your advantage. The day seems to play in your favor on an emotional plane. A Mercury-Mars aspect later today, however, can be tricky, and there can be an accelerated, energized pace to a relationship, as well as animated or impulsive communications. Others may react strongly or act a little unpredictably, and it may be time to revisit an old problem.
CancerTransits are strong today for partnering, dear Cancer, or teaming up with someone can be particularly beneficial. A relationship can improve tremendously by focusing on long-term happiness goals. And a significant someone can be an excellent sounding board for your ideas. The Sun and Jupiter harmonize, inspiring positive thinking and actions that improve your life or lead to intrinsic rewards. You might experience an epiphany, a moment of understanding, or a positive focus for your attention that helps lift your spirits. It’s a great time to willingly let go of a grudge, do someone a favor, spread your good cheer, or go out of your way to help or compliment someone. Good humor and ideas are in strong focus. There is a tense element to the day as it advances, however, and you could feel strongly about handling a matter that’s been frustrating you, but rushing a communication may not be a good idea now. While you might tackle a problem with more courage than usual, there will likely be more to the story later. Mental energy is intense, and if it turns into nervous energy, it can lead to mistakes. Clear away clutter and tie up loose ends instead of pushing a matter that needs more time.
LeoToday’s Sun-Jupiter trine promotes good feelings and optimism, dear Leo. You might solve work or mechanical issues, which can be a fantastic relief. You may resolve to focus on making improvements with this positive energy in your corner. Aim to enjoy the benefits of cooperation. You are quick to forgive and possibly even forget, and you benefit from an active, open, and generous spirit that’s building. Fortunately, others seem to recognize your efforts, talents, or leadership ability. This can also be a time when you’re particularly inspired by a work or health pursuit, project, or lifestyle adjustment. As the day advances, mental energy is stirring up. Your mind may race, and competitive feelings can drive you, although this can feel a little too pressured. You may be tense or drive–or both! You want to cut right to the chase, and you could be particularly focused on resolving a problem from the past now bugging you or otherwise blocking your path forward. There can be much thinking or conversing about particular roadblocks, especially related to creative projects, children, or romance. It’s best to watch for false starts and hasty moves since Mercury remains retrograde until the 1st.
VirgoToday’s Sun-Jupiter trine makes it an encouraging time for sharing ideas, new interests, rediscovering an old romance or friendship, and for creative and publishing projects, dear Virgo. Your outlook is incredibly constructive and optimistic, and you project self-confidence and goodwill, quickly attracting the cooperation of others. With this harmonious transit, your enthusiasm builds, especially along creative or romantic lines. It’s a good time to enjoy with a friend and focus on light-hearted topics. It’s also reliable for bonding, teaming up, and forgiving or building trust. You are projecting a healthy level of confidence, and you’re generous with your goodwill, time, and energy. However, avoid overloading your schedule today. You should also avoid bringing up tricky topics, as any debates started today can quickly escalate. You might return to an old project or problem today, or your personal or home life can be very busy or even hectic–something is up in the air, and you have little patience until it’s resolved! Indeed, your brain can feel overloaded in spots.
LibraYou can feel quite positive and optimistic today, dear Libra, with the Sun and Jupiter in harmony. You are enthusiastic, particularly about emotional, personal, and family matters. An upbeat show of support from people you care about may be in the offing. There is eagerness to put something behind you. It’s a strong time for thinking in terms of improvement — what you can do to make yourself a better life. You may be looking at past projects that may have been abandoned with new interest. These could be revived with fresh thinking and a few edits. As the day advances, retrograde Mercury aligns with Mars, and you can quickly get all wound up over a problem that’s re-emerging and perhaps frustrating you, however. You may speak or act a little too fast now! Mental energy runs high today, and you should probably keep in mind that people, including you, may not be saying what’s in their hearts. As such, it’s better to keep some emotional distance if engaging in debates and try not to take things, especially done or spoken in impatience, too seriously. There can be many distractions, but this can be an excellent day for reviving an old mental interest or idea.
ScorpioThe Sun and Jupiter harmonize today, dear Scorpio, building your enthusiasm for your ideas and a relationship. As you express yourself more positively and confidently, you seem to secure the right responses from others. It’s an excellent time for meeting someone or enjoying the company of someone already in your life. There can be a settling of a past matter or an agreement made now. Others can benefit from your know-how. Or, this energy is about teaming up with a partner. You’re likely to find that people are giving one another the benefit of the doubt. Building faith in a relationship can be in focus and rewarding. Mental energy runs high today, and you can be feeling especially driven to put an idea into action or solve a problem related to business or finances as the day advances. A tricky situation in a relationship can also be in the spotlight. An old problem resurfaces, and it can feel pressing and seem to demand action. Watch, however, for impulsive moves and communications. Ideally, you’ll avoid hasty decision-making now. This is a good time to revisit old ideas and update them, and the review of past purchases or budgets can be useful.
SagittariusA solid desire to move on is with you today as you catch the vibes of a trine between the Sun and Jupiter, dear Sagittarius. Even so, this aspect occurs in your work, health, and money sectors, and while it’s a light aspect, your focus can be on practical matters. Motivation takes hold to work and produce. Money, business, work, and health methods are in favor, and enthusiasm grows along with your confidence. Today’s events give you a reason for renewed hope or optimism about finances or work. A work or self-care program can drive and inspire you. Still, Mercury and Mars come together in your sign later today, and with Mercury retrograde, mental energy is abundant but perhaps stifled or misdirected just for now. You should watch for offhand or unintentionally insensitive remarks and impulsive actions, as your mind is working much faster than your heart, and perhaps at a quicker pace than others around you. There can be some backtracking or frustration that serves as a push to clear the decks for new beginnings.
CapricornThe Sun in your sign harmonizes with Jupiter today, dear Capricorn, and you’re giving off good vibes. You could find yourself in pleasant demand! It’s an excellent time for building bridges or boosting current relationships. Hobbies and recreational pastimes can be in stronger focus and particularly satisfying or rewarding. Certainly, you’re inclined to focus on renewal and creative refreshment. You may feel freer to express yourself or happy to explore hobbies and other forms of expressive recreation. Rewarding feedback can be forthcoming. It can be a wonderfully creative time for you if you take a break, let things flow, and allow yourself some freedom to express yourself as you wish. Even so, there can be tension about dealing with an old problem. Your mind may race! Mercury and Mars join forces in your sector of karma, and you can be anxious to deal with a matter dragging you down or blocking your path to new beginnings. As Mercury is retrograde, try not to make hasty physical and mental moves. There is likely more to this story, and it may be best to let it unfold at a reasonable pace.
AquariusThis is an excellent day for focusing on the big picture and putting aside differences and problems, dear Aquarius, particularly related to your emotional world, personal life, and home and family matters. With the Sun and Jupiter in harmony today, there can be a feeling of being at peace with the past and a sense that you’re truly making progress. You feel at your best now when you let go of frustration or anger and when you forgive. In fact, it motivates you to be a better person, and this is the kind of energy that is with you now. Today is powerful for doing some healing. Sharing your happiness with others feels right with this forgiving, happy, and cooperative energy. Also today, a Mercury-Mars alignment can bring back an old problem to your attention. With Mercury retrograde, it’s best to watch for a tendency to misconstrue situations or to put a lot of energy into something you change your mind about later. It’s easy to get carried away with this transit, and it can be challenging to calm down at times now. You need time to scope things out, and you should take it.
PiscesToday’s Sun-Jupiter transit encourages you to enjoy yourself, dear Pisces. A happy balance is possible. It’s a friendly influence that keeps you pleasantly alert. There can be a conversation with a friend or encouraging news that lifts your spirits. You feel especially confident about a particular goal or idea. It can also be an excellent time to enjoy your studies or a special interest. You can see the bigger picture, or a friend can help you see a new, more optimistic perspective. Others reinforce or supplement your ideas in pleasant ways. Contributions from friends or networks tend to be helpful or motivating. Answers come more easily when you share your problems today. Connecting, mingling, chatting, and networking can encourage you or bring opportunities into your life. Also today, however, is a rather tense alignment, and there can be a feeling you need to rush something to the finish line, but there is still much more to the story! It’s a good idea to watch for impulsive communications and moves. An old problem that was put aside can now re-emerge, or you could feel driven to sort out a complicated issue. You’re communicating and coming across with more strength than usual, so make it work in your favor rather than against you!
