Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Sun-Saturn can be a little stark, dear Aries, bringing a perspective that’s bare-bones. For example, if you receive some advice or seek it, it’s likely to be very helpful and mature, although not necessarily what you want to hear. You could find that an old obligation comes up now, likely involving a friend, or if you’ve been feeling alone or without an anchor socially, you can feel the need to make a change now. A strategy or plan to work towards a long-term goal could also be in order. Fortunately, your resolve to improve your life, particularly to add more structure and discipline, is building, and seeing things clearly now can help this further. Aim to focus on what you know and what you know you can control and take things step by step. This can be a time for more determination to pursue your goals, even if it comes after a minor disappointment.
TaurusToday’s Sun-Saturn alignment in your solar tenth house reminds you of your goals and responsibilities, dear Taurus. You recognize the need to tighten your belt, work a little harder, and improve your work or duties. The spotlight is on your performance or accomplishments; if you’ve fallen short, you might feel the pinch now. You may assume more responsibilities and feel the accompanying loss of freedom. However, you could also appreciate the clarity that comes from seeing the reality of a situation. People might recognize your accomplishments, or they might temporarily see the flaws. It’s an important week for establishing your priorities. Taking a hard look at things might be necessary before you refuel with the motivation to improve.
GeminiThe Sun and Saturn meet in your solar ninth house today, dear Gemini, and you can feel a great need to make productive use of your time, especially on a mental level. It’s an excellent time to boost your practical skills, and serious discussions are possible. If enthusiasm has been floundering, aim to slow things down enough to assess the situation realistically. There can be a dose of reality to face, although it may take some time before things are objectively clear. You’re at an important juncture for reassessing goals and recognizing your priorities. The need to concentrate, focus, and specialize makes itself known. Ideally, you can make new and improved plans to reach your goals.
CancerToday’s Sun-Saturn alignment can shine a light on problem areas, dear Cancer, particularly in areas related to support, an intimate relationship, or a financial matter. Once beyond the exaggerated stage of your realizations, you’re in a great position to accept or reject the reality of a project, endeavor, or relationship. But do consider that a well-rounded view of a situation is not yet with you. Drawing boundaries may be appropriate. Certainly, seeing things for both their strengths and weaknesses helps you make the right decisions. This is a day for shuffling around your priorities, and this applies in a general sense to the week.
LeoYour ruler, the Sun, meets with Saturn today in your partnership sector today, dear Leo, for the last time before Saturn moves on in March. With this transit, you might feel the weight of responsibilities to others or the heaviness of a close relationship this week. If others demand too much of you, you may need to set some boundaries. You could find reasons to take stock of your commitments and debts to others. Alternatively, there can be a slight letdown if you don’t have someone you can genuinely say is in your corner. Circumstances reveal the less flattering side of others or even of yourself through partnership. While flaws can appear more significant than they objectively are, seeing them now can help with clarity. Decisions are more manageable when you see people and situations for both their strengths and weaknesses. With some time, you’ll be in an excellent position to reassess your needs from your connections.
VirgoThe Sun meets Saturn today, and responsibilities with your work, chores, and routines tend to magnify, dear Virgo. Conversations are heady, or your thoughts are heavy. Consider that as you face realities, you’ll feel more confident about moving forward with realistic expectations. Aim to work hard and do what you can without pushing yourself too hard. It’s a time for following the rules instead of cutting corners. You might reassess specific tasks, seeing flaws or weak spots, but give this time, since transits today may temporarily exaggerate the negative side of things. Your priorities will begin to clarify, and if a new game plan is necessary, you’ll soon be ready to make it.
LibraWith today’s Sun-Saturn alignment, you recognize or consider the more serious side of your relationships, alliances, and projects, dear Libra. A critique or new information could frame things differently, leading to a reassessment. Avoid committing to something in the heat of the moment as it may end up harder to fulfill than you had expected–take your time with new ideas or resolutions. With Saturn involved, it’s best to consider ways to simplify and streamline your life to improve it all around, but the negative side of things may temporarily magnify. This perspective can be heavy or negatively skewed and not necessarily accurate if you’re also ignoring the spiritual or imaginative elements. Consider that you need more information to round out your view. This process can motivate you to make necessary improvements, likely through improved structure and self-discipline, making it an excellent time to apply yourself to your work, craft, or relationships.
ScorpioThe need to get back on track is strong with the Sun and Saturn coming together in your solar fourth house, dear Scorpio. Reminders of your responsibilities to family or those close to you can arise as the Sun shines a light on Saturn’s obligations, duties, and need for rules and structure. It makes sense to deal with pressures or tasks instead of putting them off. Others may not be jumping to help you or to cooperate at the moment, but aim to take care of what you can independently if necessary. Positively, you can get a real push to get going or get organized, serious, and productive. If you’re not yet ready to go ahead, it can be a time to commit to managing home life or a family or home-related project. You’ll feel stronger if you meet your obligations, and it’s a good idea to start small and go from there.
SagittariusWith the Sun and Saturn coming together in your communications sector, dear Sagittarius, you can be taking things quite seriously. It’s not so easy gaining others’ cooperation right now, so you might aim to handle things independently. Work you thought was complete might present itself, and redoing could be in order. Or you could be troubled by an unexpected errand to run or a communication that frustrates you. Responsibilities seem overwhelming now, but if you can tackle matters one at a time, step by step, you will find that you get further. Give yourself uninterrupted time. Be extra cautious when making important statements, as your words have more staying power than usual and a higher chance of being negatively misconstrued. While you are likely taking things more seriously than is warranted, you might also discover where you stand on a matter, which helps clarify your next step.
CapricornThere can be a reality to face or a responsibility to meet in your financial life, dear Capricorn, with the Sun and Saturn meeting in your resources sector. Handling events with maturity is the best strategy with this transit that shines the light on problem areas. In turn, it allows you to see what you should do to improve and strengthen your life. Aim to look honestly at a plan, project, or area of your life that has held you back. Remember that the most promising, long-lasting programs are slow and steady ones! Work on one problem at a time, step by step, and you’ll be in great shape. In all likelihood, you’ll appreciate the increased clarity you gain now.
AquariusWith the Sun and Saturn joining forces in your sign today, dear Aquarius, you are reminded of your limits or the reality of a matter. Ideally, this transit motivates you to clean up an issue you’re better off leaving behind you. There can be a new perspective that redirects you along a new path. The Sun shines its light on a responsibility or the structure of a project or plan, and it may be time to reconsider some details. It’s a little easier to see the negative side of things today, but soon enough, you’ll arrive at a balance and some clarity. You are maturing in many ways with wise and practical Saturn in your sign, and today, the problem areas in your life are in the spotlight. It can be discouraging at first, as you may feel alone or unsupported temporarily. However, you’ll be better off if you look honestly at what needs improving. Aim to meet your responsibilities, but watch for taking yourself too seriously. This is the final Sun-Saturn alignment before Saturn moves on from your sign, and you’re getting over obstacles.
PiscesIt’s possible certain boundaries, rules, and structures need to dissolve before you can rebuild them to better reflect the person you have become, dear Pisces. With the Sun and Saturn aligning today, you’re facing reality on a matter this week, which moves you forward. You may need to attend to responsibilities or obligations, such as supporting someone, which can be spiritually rewarding. Something from the past that was left unresolved can resurface and demand your attention. There could be a difficult decision or issue weighing heavily on your mind today, and it’s best to give it some time. Moving ahead with less emotional baggage should be the goal now! While a stronger awareness of a limitation can be a temporary downer, it can also light your fire to get more organized.
