Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile the Moon encourages you to take a break, dear Aries, a Sun-Uranus square can too easily find you rushing or feeling rushed. You can feel tense if you haven’t recognized a need to make changes in your practical affairs or social life. Still, this energy can be a vital awakening to new ideas and possibilities for improving your methods, income, and relationships. People around you can be emotionally excitable, and schedules may not be honored, which can be distracting. Prioritize your tasks early in the day for best results.
TaurusWith the Sun at the top of your solar chart, dear Taurus, your need for accomplishment is strong at this time of year. Still, this drive can run counter to your campaign to be yourself, express your independence, and live authentically as the Sun squares Uranus in your sign today. The results of this clash may only amount to a bit of tension, or it can be more disruptive. There’s a tendency to challenge authority or tradition, but results may not be favorable if you do so too reactively. Avoiding abrupt moves or dramatic stands is best until you process your feelings. Consider ways to make changes without making too many waves. At the same time, watch for a defensive, impatient, or provocative manner that instigates rather than takes charge. Aim to listen to your heart and avoid quick reactions to others. The day can be scattered, but there’s something to learn at the end of it!
GeminiWith a Sun-Uranus square today, dear Gemini, there can be times when your attention is divided, as much as you want to focus, and you could find it rather difficult to concentrate. There can be surprising new information that throws off your schedule or plans, or the routine seems exceptionally boring or restricting to you today. Instead of working on autopilot, try to satisfy your desire for something different by trying a new style, route to work, or better yet, something new to learn. The desire to shirk a responsibility can be strong but is unlikely to satisfy in the long run. While you likely need to make a change, it’s better not to be abrupt about it, as this approach can backfire–it’s likely to cause more trouble than you need. Aim to tone down rough edges for best results today.
CancerThe Moon spends another day in your sign, dear Cancer, and you feel freer and more independent. If you can avoid the tendency to move too fast and live on your nerves, you can come to great insights. Keep your feet on the ground, however, so you can get there. With today’s Sun-Uranus square, surprises or changes in plans can lead you to adjust expectations and attitudes. Making snap decisions can be a tendency with this transit, but it’s better to wait and see. If you’re feeling especially tense or restless, try to channel excess energy into a productive pursuit that you know serves you well. Otherwise, you may be spinning your wheels, or all riled up and unnecessarily stressed.
LeoWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house today, dear Leo, you continue to need a break from the ordinary. Still, a Sun-Uranus square brings uncooperative energies surrounding a partnership, parent, or boss. A sense of moving forward is with you, but it’s best to avoid quick reactions since the tendency to react or to be abrupt and loud about making changes can lead to unnecessary trouble or misunderstandings. If others are too impersonal with you now, you can feel quite annoyed, but it’s best not to play into it and find ways to enjoy yourself without having to count on someone else. However, there may be a matter that needs your attention, and this transit can bring it to the surface.
VirgoToday’s Sun-Uranus square can test your patience in spots, dear Virgo, particularly regarding opinions, directions, and instructions. Ideally, though, it alerts you to areas that need change and improvement. The desire to perform, improve, and excel in your work or with your health and routines is strong currently, but it clashes with an equally compelling need to explore, learn, and enjoy the benefits of spontaneity and freeform learning and living. Something you hear might stimulate a new way of thinking, so don’t disregard communications altogether, but do take some time before reacting. It could be that you stumble upon a new way to approach an old health or work problem from interrupted plans today. Centering yourself can help you make the best of the day’s energies.
LibraYou could be feeling a little on edge at times today, dear Libra, with a Sun-Uranus square in play. It may especially be the case with creative projects and intimate relationships or if you don’t know where you stand with a situation or someone. Try to remain flexible and avoid stubbornly sticking to old methods while avoiding the other extreme if it involves an impulsive break. Aim to consciously pull your energy away from tense situations and let go of stress when possible. Of course, it’s usually wise to examine your reactions if they come on suddenly.
ScorpioWith today’s Sun-Uranus square, dear Scorpio, there can be difficulties concentrating at times. You may feel pulled in several directions, and your next step is unclear. It may be best to focus on the moment just for now–worrying too much about your next step can be a waste of energy when you are uncertain of the final destination. Someone in your life could surprise you, or there could be disconcerting competitive energy with or between family or a partner, making it difficult to relax or unwind. Keep yourself open and flexible, because sometimes unexpected change can help you move forward and away from bad habits. Channeling extra energy into making plans or organizing the home and possibly family activities can be successful. Consider that you may be feeling torn between wanting time to yourself and a craving for companionship, which can end up sending people confusing signals.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Uranus square can generate some tension if your studies, contacts, or projects have consumed you and a chaotic feeling emerges in other areas of your life, dear Sagittarius. If you’ve had overscheduling problems, you will likely feel the stress strongly now. Remind yourself of your limits, or else you’re likely to feel too scattered to be very productive. If you’ve been suppressing frustration, this can be a time when it surfaces abruptly or unexpectedly! Stress can have a way of aggravating health problems, so do what you can to relax. While not everything is going according to plan, you can find ways to adapt and enjoy yourself. You might discover new methods through today’s troubles.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Uranus square can overstimulate or rile you up, dear Capricorn. As such, it may be best to watch for hasty moves, particularly with money and love. Your desire for comfort and safety competes with your need for emotional excitement today. These days, you want to take control of the more practical affairs in your life, and today’s inconsistencies remind you that control is never entirely ours! There’s only so much you can do. Consider that scattered energies today can more easily lead to losing or misplacing something. However, a significant breaking-free moment can emerge from tensions or related to dysfunctional areas of your life. Changes in plans can stimulate new approaches and ideas. Aim to keep an open mind and avoid pushing things too far. Be sure to take some time away from an issue if it’s draining or distracting you from your priorities.
AquariusToday’s Moon stirs your desire for order, dear Aquarius, but a Sun-Uranus square can be overstimulating. It’s especially the case if you’ve been holding on to frustrations. Restrictive conditions are harder to tolerate with this transit, and those things you’ve suppressed or buried can surface, perhaps disruptively. Family relationships or home life can be a little tense or strained, or you’re finding it hard to feel content with routine living. Seek new ways to enjoy yourself if things are feeling too stuffy or stifling, but also seriously consider what you may need to stay stimulated and engaged going forward.
PiscesMental tension is possible with today’s Sun-Uranus square, dear Pisces. It’s best to avoid impulsive moves. Instead, look for the window this transit gives you into areas of your life or thinking patterns that have now become dysfunctional. Certainly, the desire to go your own way, particularly mentally and with your projects, can rock the boat. Watch that you don’t become your own worst enemy by speaking too quickly about a matter. You may want to break free from a stifling situation, and being mindful about how or whether to do so can serve you better.
