Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere is a lot of power available to you on mental levels, dear Aries, as Mercury and Pluto align. You may get the final word on a matter, likely related to career, business, or life path, that has caused you some ups and downs in the last while. Try to use this for good and avoid stubbornness that serves only to frustrate. Relationships can be sensitive today if you’re too focused on work or reputation matters. In your search for the truth, pull back a little to get some perspective. You have a stronger influence today than usual, and people gravitate to your intensity. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector, and you’re in the mood for some time to center yourself. Familiarity feels comforting.
TaurusYour personal interests are a strong draw today, dear Taurus. It’s easy for you to become quite preoccupied with an idea or mission to seek the truth that interferes with your plans. An unresolved matter from the recent past can resurface, this time with more clarity and a chance of resolve. You are undoubtedly one-track-minded today, but be sure that it serves you well rather than distracts you from what’s truly important. People are drawn to you today. As the day advances, transits can inspire you to enjoy yourself more fully. Avoid power or mind games for best results.
GeminiIn the first half of the day, you can become quite invested in an idea or line of thought that pulls you into a serious frame of mind, dear Gemini. Nurture this to the point that it serves you well, such as getting to the bottom of a matter or putting effort into a worthwhile project. You’re unlikely to accept superficial or simplistic solutions or observations, but try not to take it too far or push conversations to negative places. You might have a breakthrough in thinking now, and a turning point helps you get past a mental block or helps you finally decide on a matter.
CancerYou could find your thoughts frequently pulled towards a relationship matter in the first half of the day, dear Cancer, and this may be a repeated theme in the last month or longer. Instead, a significant person in your life may be insistent with you. Whether or not you want to address problem areas, it may end up moving in that direction anyhow. Don’t accept undue pressure for an answer, but consider approaching an uncomfortable topic if it needs airing. You may very well grow as a result. In fact, it can be a time when you put a problem behind you.
LeoEarly today, there can be a strong call to resolve a matter, dear Leo, primarily related to work or health. This can be an issue that first emerged in December. Perhaps you need to make a final decision now, and this requires your complete attention, despite all of the other things going on in your life. Avoid succumbing to pressure or pushing a matter to the point that you have tunnel vision. It’s a fine time to put a problem or worry behind you, and it can come as a wonderful release. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, pointing to the need for some rest and time to restore your energy.
VirgoThe day’s energies can begin with some mental intensity, dear Virgo. You can become quite engrossed in a matter that seems to beg for resolution or further investigation, likely related to a creative project, child, or romantic relationship. An important conversation, discovery, or big reveal can occur now. A project that has frustrated you in recent weeks can now show quite a turnaround, although it can also consume a whole lot of your attention. Information unblocks, and you feel a little lighter. The day advances with more lightness and perhaps some relief.
LibraWhile you crave more spontaneity and freedom today, dear Libra, there can be the need to resolve a matter or fulfill an obligation that takes you away from your personal interests. Instead, you could find that your mind frequently turns to a topic from the past or an unresolved problem, and this distracts you from the free spirit energy you would like to enjoy now. Aim to put effort into a problem area, have an important conversation, or bring something to a resolution, but avoid doing this to the point that you’re consumed by it and no longer have time or energy to enjoy yourself. Today can bring a turning point where you put a worry behind you.
ScorpioIn the first half of the day, a complicated matter can emerge that requires your complete attention for a while, dear Scorpio. You’re likely to have to revisit a recent problem, but this time, you’re better equipped to handle it. You have more information now, although you’ll still need to concentrate and perhaps investigate a little further before you get to the point of resolution. Your thinking can be breakthrough, and a project can push forward or at least get over a major hump. It’s a turning point on a mental level. The Moon’s move into your sector of spirit and the higher mind later today helps free you from overthinking.
SagittariusIn the first half of today, a Mercury-Pluto alignment in your resources sector can turn your strong attention to a problem that needs revisiting, dear Sagittarius. The good news is that you are better able to resolve a matter that has bothered you for some time. Aim to take advantage of your increased ability to focus and get to the bottom of a subject. At the same time, be sure to take some time away from an issue if it’s dragging you down or no longer worth the effort. It can be challenging to know when to leave something alone today, but it gets far more straightforward as the day advances. Ideally, you put a matter behind you and feel lighter for it.
CapricornIn the first half of the day, personal matters can be pressing, dear Capricorn. There can be a watershed moment related to an idea, understanding, or project as Mercury and Pluto come together in your sign. You’re inclined to throw yourself into an investigation or seek the truth or bottom line, which can certainly stir up inner conflicts and possibly some resistance or frustration in others. It may be best to tone things down if possible, but do take advantage of an opportunity to bring a new perspective to an old problem. You’re in a great position to finally resolve an irritating issue that’s been dogging you in recent weeks.
AquariusYou’re emotionally geared towards having some fun and expressing yourself spontaneously today, dear Aquarius. However, in the first half of the day, a Mercury-Pluto alignment points to intense thoughts, a mystery to solve, or an old problem that begs resolution. While this is likely to be a private matter, even if you keep it to yourself, others around you could sense that you’re not especially “present” and perhaps quite preoccupied. Aim to put effort into resolving a matter, but avoid taking this to the point that it’s no longer serving you good purpose. In fact, it’s an excellent time to find a solution or to finally put a nagging issue behind you.
PiscesYou could find yourself in the position to tackle a recurring problem with new insight today, dear Pisces. Mercury aligns with Pluto as it did in December and again while Mercury was retrograde in January. Now, you have the chance to break new mental ground, mainly related to a friendship or long-term goal. Try not to get stuck in old habits and methods, and instead look to push just enough to get to a new level of understanding. For best results, look for ways to improve, grow, and learn so that you can move past a frustrating matter. Discussions and ideas emerging now can help create turning points. Today holds the promise of potentially beneficial information through friends or networks.
