Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your solar second house, dear Aries, and you’re paying special attention to practical matters. While it’s a good time to get comfortable, you’re doing your downtime differently these days. It’s a good idea to give yourself and others space and freedom. A Saturn-Uranus square forming today affects the year ahead, and some tensions emerge related to shifting money sources or a changing attitude toward personal possessions. There can be conflicts with friends about fundamental values. Friendships that survive any ups and downs this year tend to be mature and worthy. With this aspect, you might wrestle with wanting to take risks, but a simultaneous fear of change can hold you back. You may need to watch for borrowing from your future, such as through drawing upon savings meant for other goals, which can cause some stress as Uranus in your money sector goes to battle with Saturn in your social sector. There can be some uncertainties with money or feelings of security that affect your friendships and happiness pursuits.
TaurusToday’s energies are rather rebellious, dear Taurus. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you tend to pay special attention to your feelings, which are particularly colorful at this time. A Saturn-Uranus square is one of the longer-term trends that color the whole year, and it occurs now. Your personal needs for more freedom, spontaneity, and independence are clear, but you’re also quite driven to forge a stable path. It can be challenging to integrate these two powerful drives. When you try to express your originality or individuality, you could feel a bit off-center and ungrounded due to a simultaneous and strong pull to get yourself secure through career or ambitions. Occasional clashes with authority are possible. This is a time to free yourself from certain old habits while also building new and healthy habits or routines.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your solar twelfth house, signaling the need to restore your energy, dear Gemini. You’re a little more retiring at this time of the lunar month. A Saturn-Uranus square occurs today, and while it will influence you until December, it tends to stir up some tension this week. There can be some struggle with letting go of the past or long-standing problems. These matters can sometimes interfere with your pursuit of a more structured, responsible lifestyle. Alternatively, restrictions you’re currently experiencing can lead to inner unrest, unburying issues, or secrets emerging. Frequent side-tracking can be problematic. Disruptions in your personal or private life can distract your efforts to buckle down. You’ll find ways to manage these clashes as you go along. For now, it’s important to reduce stress.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your sector of dreams, plans, wishes, and friends, dear Cancer, motivating you to connect with your happiness goals. Still, the day’s energies tend to stimulate rebelliousness. A Saturn-Uranus aspect forms today, and it will be in influence until December. With it, challenges can emerge as your social life is a little more eclectic (or unreliable), and you’re getting serious about your inner world or intimate life. The desire to experiment can feel at odds with your need to specialize and focus on one absorbing project or relationship. There could be clashes or cross-purposes between a friend and a lover that needs special attention. You’re breaking free from bad habits while building new, healthier ones, but there can be some disruptions in the process.
LeoYou are more goal-oriented with the Moon in your solar tenth house all day, dear Leo. Ideas for progress can be original. A Saturn-Uranus transit exact today affects the week rather strongly, although it brings up a theme that’s with you much of the year. There is a heavier, more committed, or traditional element to partnering this year, while your career or life path goals are more unconventional. At times, these areas of life clash, and you can feel torn between different goals. However, you’re also recognizing that you’re growing through more responsibility or maturity in your relationships, even as you work on the tougher stuff. You could feel rebellious today, wanting to break free from what limits you, yet also drawn to a steady path. Conflicts with someone can emerge if your attention is divided or if your goals seem out of reach or not understandable.
VirgoYou may want to explore something new as you seek out a little more meaning today, dear Virgo. The Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house of spirit, and you can benefit from a change of pace. A Saturn-Uranus square that plays a big role in the year’s astrology is exact today, and its themes are powerful this week. With this transit, your duties, health programs, and self-care efforts can clash with your increased desire to learn, debate, and share. Getting to a better balance can be a challenge and goal! It’s not easy to be productive without succumbing to distractions. It may be best to seek ways to balance your activities and responsibilities to avoid feeling overwhelmed or divided. There can certainly be times when your desire for non-routine experiences and learning can conflict with your need to structure your daily affairs. While you’re likely to do battle with different goals and needs, a comfortable balance is within reach.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, and some introspection can be beneficial, dear Libra. However, try not to rush a financial or intimate matter. A Saturn-Uranus square with us until December comes into exactitude today, and its themes are strong this week. Giving too much of your time or resources to others may be an issue and could leave you feeling discouraged if they don’t seem to appreciate your efforts. The desire for freedom from certain obligations to others can seem to clash with more commitment in your love life, children or dependents, or creative and leisure pursuits. You’re breaking free of unhealthy dependencies and attachments this year, and it can be somewhat rough going as you figure out what those are! Ultimately, however, it’s a good time to clear the deck for new beginnings. You’re far less tolerant of unsupportive relationships and superficial pastimes or hobbies. As well, your pursuit of pleasure might often clash with your need for more absorbing activities. Avoid financial speculation during this period. Your strong sense of responsibility should get you on the right track.
ScorpioA Saturn-Uranus square occurring today sticks with you until December, dear Scorpio. This transit ties your sector of home and family and your sector of partnership, and finding a balance is the challenge! It may mean that disagreements between a partner and family or about family are part of the picture. Or, your needs for rest, repose, downtime, and comfort/safety conflict with developments in close relationships. You might be a support system for a significant person in your life, which can cause some friction. There can certainly be times when an unreliable or erratic theme with one-to-one relationships can disrupt other life departments. You’re paying much more attention to your domestic world and your needs for nurture, comfort, and safety, and an unpredictable theme in relationships can compete with or disrupt these goals. Your need for emotional or psychic space is particularly strong this year. Nevertheless, you’re in good shape for connecting with and learning from others today. Someone’s feedback might surprise you.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your solar sixth house of work and health, dear Sagittarius, and you’re ready to fix problems. The energies of a Saturn-Uranus square occurring today will stick with you until December, challenging you to find a balance. Watch for nervousness, tension, and changes that interfere with your comfort, health, and equilibrium or work output. Stress or pressure in your daily affairs or with learning and connecting can weigh on your outlook and health or job and chores. It’s a good idea to watch for stressing yourself out. Unreliable routines or erratic tasks and work schedules may take their toll on you this year without care and management. Inattention to details can also be a problem if your approach is a little too slapdash.
CapricornThe Moon transits your sector of joy and pleasure all day, dear Capricorn, and you tend to seek some repose and enjoyable activities. Today’s Saturn-Uranus square is the first of three aspects–the other two will occur in June and December. With this influence, there can be times when you’re battling yourself or money matters, or your desire for security seems to be at odds with your need to branch out. Part of you is focusing on steadying your life, building a sense of security and safety, and managing your resources this year. However, these themes can be at cross purposes with your desire to take a chance or go out on a limb sometimes! Your urges and needs for love, spontaneity, and creative expression clash with a strong desire to settle in and get comfortable. Restrictions on your explorations can be material or spiritual as you wrestle with a need for security, frugality, and predictability. You’ll have time to work through these issues in the coming months.
AquariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of home, family, security, and personal life, dear Aquarius. You seek some comfort and personal space for centering yourself. Today’s energies do take you on a bit of a ride regardless: Saturn forms a square to Uranus today, and it’s the first of three such aspects that strongly influence the year’s astrology. With this transit, you can sometimes face a conundrum: you’re maturing and growing in 2021, which can seem to clash with your home or family life in spots. It could be that changes or unexpected situations in your home or personal life sometimes upend your personal plans or initiatives. You have time to work through these issues this year. Answers don’t come quickly, and it can be a process! However, you’re feeling these rumblings now, and they can be quite prominent this week. There may be times when changes on the home front or with family can interfere with your efforts to get back on track, but overall, it’s a period for strengthening your life and building endurance and patience. While you could sometimes feel left to your own devices, you may very well discover that you function quite well in this position. You’re building your self-reliance even if you experience some rebellious feelings as you do.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Pisces, stirring your curiosity. Your tastes are eclectic right now. You can feel a little wired in spots, however. Saturn and Uranus reach a square today, and they’ll meet in the same way in June and December before parting ways. It’s a longer-term aspect that tends to weave its theme through the year. Watch that fear of the discovery of past mistakes, or perhaps of letting others in, doesn’t interfere with communicating and connecting freely. While you’re working on answering to your intuition, you may not always have a lot of faith in your instincts, perhaps overthinking things. Aim to avoid communicating too quickly or compulsively, as you may be self-sabotaging. Consider that your timing can be a little off temporarily if you can’t entirely trust your intuition. Decision-making can sometimes suffer if your confidence is waning. You are not always completely sure what to believe or trust, but you’re learning how to manage this issue. It’s a process!
