Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends much of the day in your work and health sector, dear Aries, and you tend to focus on getting things in order. Even so, the Sun moves into the opposite house of your solar chart for a month, encouraging you to take more quality time for rest and reflection. Reinforced by Jupiter’s presence in your solar twelfth house, you quite readily support others even if you tend to take extra personal time. During this cycle that lasts until March 20th, you may put some things behind you if they’re no longer supportive. It’s a clean-up period on emotional or psychic levels. If you’ve been a little too optimistic with new projects, this is a time for paring down. Healing, restful activities are helpful.
TaurusThe Moon spends much of the day in your romance and leisure sector, encouraging you to have some fun, dear Taurus. The Sun heads into your social sector for a month-long stay, and you’ll crave more interaction with friends, teams, groups, networks, or the community. Instead, it can be a time of special attention to happiness goals, dreams, and wishes. Until March 20th, you can do more collaborating and cooperating. This is a time when participating in some way can be satisfying, and when putting ego needs to the side in favor of group efforts can be helpful. Sharing with others gives you a boost, and you get more satisfaction than usual when your actions positively impact others. You more often answer a desire to branch out.
GeminiThe Sun begins its transit of your solar tenth house today, dear Gemini, encouraging you to get in touch with your larger goals and aspirations. During this cycle, what you do and how you perform are in the spotlight. New responsibilities are possible, or you may feel more ambitious and focused on achievement and goal-setting. It’s a take-charge time for professional and public efforts, and this period lasts until March 20th. You can come to a high point of the year in your career or reputation. You could be in the position to lead, manage, and advise more than usual–it’s a time to shine!
CancerThe Sun heads into your sector of adventure and spirit today, dear Cancer, and will spend the next month in this area of your solar chart (until March 20th). This cycle is excellent for spirited, spontaneous activities as well as activities that help you promote, share, learn, explore, and discover. Moving out of your routine from time to time is important during this cycle to get a sense of the bigger picture. There can be more positivity in your outlook, actions, interests, thoughts, and conversations in the coming weeks. You embrace new ways of looking at problems as you’re tired of dull rules, routines, and information. You seek new horizons on mental levels, and you might discover exciting topics to explore now.
LeoThe Sun begins its visit to your intimacy sector today, dear Leo, encouraging an inward focus while it transits this area of your solar chart until March 20th. It’s a time of year when self-transformation can be in the spotlight as you seek to grow and evolve. You can become determined to improve your life from the inside out, or intimate connections and sharing or financial and emotional support come into strong play. You want a relationship or project that motivates you or you can explore in depth and connect with on a deeper level. During this cycle, investigating, researching, playing detective, and analyzing are all in favor. In the process, aim to be as honest with yourself as possible for the best results since you have a lot to learn and observe at this time of year.
VirgoThe Sun moves into the partnership sector of your solar chart today, dear Virgo. This cycle puts the spotlight on partnerships and close friendships until March 20th. Through others, you see yourself and your life more clearly. You take more pride in getting along with others and how well you find harmony and balance in your personal environment. Energetically, though, this is not an ideal cycle, but you get some friendly support from Mars for a couple more weeks, which helps compensate for energy dips. It’s a strong period for either beginning a new partnership or improving and enhancing an existing one. You seek or attract people who help stimulate your thoughts and decisions, sometimes as sounding boards but also for companionship. Someone’s feedback tends to rev up you up, even if you sometimes disagree. You’re more relationship-focused than usual, and you are putting more of yourself and your energy into your relationships with others.
LibraThe Sun moves into your work and health sector today, dear Libra, and will transit here for a month. You can be especially busy getting your life into better order, and it’s an excellent time to take charge of daily routines. Until March 20th, the spotlight is on work, service, health, daily affairs, and personal habits or routines. You’re taking more pride and interest in these things, motivating you to improve them. It can be a time for really digging into the details of your life, solving problems, and getting your life organized in crucial ways. You’re particularly good at adjusting to life’s circumstances and making small changes that help you get on track. You might also work on perfecting skills and projects. Watch for a tendency to worry, fret, and otherwise overthink. Today, you may yet need to catch up–the Moon continues to transit your privacy sector until late today when it moves into your sign. You may get a slow start.
ScorpioThe Sun begins its visit of your solar fifth house today, dear Scorpio, and will stick around here until March 20th. It’s a month-long expressive and creative cycle that encourages you to invest in more playtime. This show-and-tell house is about expressing your talents, abilities, and affections more naturally. A stronger urge is with you to create, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and partake of many of life’s pleasures. This Sun transit is subtly boosting, and it brings out your more playful, outgoing qualities. You might renew, refresh, or begin special projects or find new avenues for self-expression and entertainment. The need for positive feedback is very strong.
SagittariusThe Sun moves into your home and family sector today, dear Sagittarius, beginning its month-long transit. You’re taking more pride and interest in your domestic life, family, foundation, or closest ties now and in the weeks ahead. In many ways, this is a time for anchoring or nesting on a psychological level. It’s not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun’s journey through your solar chart, but it’s a valuable period for gaining a stronger sense of self. Soothing and centering yourself with familiar activities can help you meet the demands of the outside world later. Domestic and personal matters are prominent themes now. There can be a lot to learn about or through family and close loved ones during this period. It’s a good time for investing creative energy into your personal life and domestic environment.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your communications sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will transit until March 20th. It’s likely to be a busy, engaged period of the year when you want to improve your personal environment, communications, transportation options, and interactions with others. You might look to subjects of study or topics of interest not only as ways to expand your knowledge but also as a means to more fully define yourself. This cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. In truth, you can cover a lot of different ground but don’t always get the chance (or feel the need) to focus. Your curiosity is bigger than usual, and your need for mental stimulation motivates a lot that you do. You can also be excited to share your ideas and opinions. Consider it a natural time for putting your feelers out.
AquariusThe Sun heads out of your sign and into your practical second house today, dear Aquarius, encouraging a step-by-step, comfortable approach to your life. You’re symbolically moving on, and you’re likely to find this cycle grounding. Until March 20th, aim to take advantage of this energy to focus on being more emotionally present in various areas of your life. It can also be a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Opportunities emerge that have you taking charge of your income and valuables. This cycle emphasizes matters of comfort and security, including financial affairs. It’s an excellent time to work on feeling more empowered by focusing on what you have, what’s working for you, your blessings, and the here and now.
PiscesThe Sun begins its visit to your sign today, dear Pisces, and will continue its transit until March 20th. The cycle ahead is one in which you’re especially noticeable and feel more in charge and capable. If you’ve been considering making changes to the personal image you project, then this is a superb time for doing so. You have increased personal presence now. Aim to make the most of this period by being positive and believing in yourself, as this is the start of a new solar year. During this cycle, you’re likely to feel more and more outgoing and interested in putting yourself out there. You hold more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that truly improve your life. As this cycle begins, you are regaining your initiative. Still, the Moon spends much of today in your partnership sector, stimulating your need for people, and more likely, someone special in particular.
