Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may gain a strong sense that you need to rally up the forces to handle an important responsibility today, dear Aries. A friendship or alliance may solidify, and it’s likely to be a significant long-term one. You could very well get a more realistic sense of the viability of a project or long-term goal today, making it easier to make the right decisions. You can feel especially good about making mature choices with Venus and Saturn heading into alignment. Whatever news or feelings this transit brings or stimulates, you’ll get a stronger sense of what is genuinely realizable. Even so, Mercury is still retrograde, and it’s best to review before pushing something forward. Today is strong for feeling motivated and organized. You may not even need a real direction to inspire you — you simply want to do something constructive.
TaurusYou might get some satisfying and meaningful work done today, dear Taurus. You might solve a complex problem or uncover a resource that helps you tremendously. The Moon moves into your intimacy sector, and focusing on emotional and practical priorities figures strongly. Venus is about to meet Saturn, and being conservative, realistic, and disciplined seems to reap the most rewards. In fact, you can feel bonded with others or better about yourself through making responsible or mature choices now. You may be taking on a new responsibility that involves hard work or some personal sacrifices but feels completely worth the effort. It’s a generally good day for your reputation. You might get serious about a career matter, rule, or responsibility. You might also break through a barrier or problem, and this comes as a pleasant relief. It’s a strong time for looking critically at problem areas.
GeminiYou’re inclined to take some areas of your life a lot more seriously today, dear Gemini. You might realize certain limitations of a plan or project now, or you may feel a bit tied down as you complete more work than you originally planned. However, you can be attracted to learning something useful today, and you might thoroughly enjoy the process. A Venus-Saturn alignment can point to a good time for skills development. You tend to come across in a pleasingly responsible or mature manner, and plans birthed now are more likely to be sound with your current realistic outlook. You’re in the position to seriously consider long-term goals, perhaps with a somewhat critical view.
CancerYou can be especially interested in doing your best today, dear Cancer, with the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house and Venus coming into alignment with Saturn. There are solutions to problems to be found today, and they’re very practical ones. Improving your habits and health should be the goal now, and thankfully, you’re in the right frame of mind for it. Efforts to organize and minimize debt get powerful support now. At the same time, you may be hunkering down and facing reality about a financial or intimate matter, and it feels good to face things maturely. There can be realities surfacing with a relationship, loan, job, or something similar. Whatever this is, it comes with responsibility! You’re in the position to consider your future and the impact your current choices might have going forward. Making mature choices and decisions can be in focus, or you may gain wise counsel or resolve to make improvements.
LeoThe Moon moves into your sector of joy for a couple of days, dear Leo, which is usually a light transit. However, if you can apply structure and assign meaning to your pleasures today, all the better. You want to make the most of your time, and you tend to seek activities in which you can create, compete, or play. Constructive conversations or activities with a partner or friend can figure strongly now. A relationship might play a significant role in your motivation to reach a goal or ambition, or a common purpose with a significant other can form. You could very well have a bonding moment with someone special over a shared responsibility, concern, or important task. However, if a relationship is coming up lacking, it can be a time when you feel the weight of your situation. You are identifying what is no longer working for you and making a commitment to take good care of your needs as you go forward.
VirgoYou’re especially aware of the details required to get a job done, dear Virgo, which helps you tremendously today. You can get a nice sense that you’re facing reality or meeting your responsibilities with work or health now as Venus and Saturn head towards alignment in your solar sixth house. It’s a fine time for tidying up your daily routines and habits, and you may very well take pleasure in putting things into order. However, if things are lacking in these areas, a reality check, new responsibility, or problem to manage can emerge now. While a little stark or serious, it puts you “in the know” and in a better position to make the right decisions for yourself. You might make a pleasant commitment to a work or self-care goal.
LibraThe Moon moves into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Libra, inspiring the desire to connect, communicate, and pursue your personal interests. You’re inclined to teach, guide, or learn something constructive now. You might come upon information that gives you a gentle nudge forward. Today holds a bit of seriousness, and there may be a reason to rally up support or face reality about a situation, which is empowering. There may be a revision of a commitment that ultimately builds your confidence since you’re far more likely to put your faith and trust in someone or something with your eyes open. You might get serious about a relationship or project.
ScorpioYou can feel motivated to get a handle on your money, valuables, or resources now, dear Scorpio. As the day advances, a Venus-Saturn influence comes into play. You may want to bring more order, beauty, and structure to your home or private world. Seeing things more realistically today can be a bit surprising but ultimately feels right. You are not interested in quick fixes now–you’re more focused on what’s likely to stand the test of time. You may need to accept a person or situation for its limitations to get into the right frame of mind that supports progress. A responsibility or commitment to loved ones may need your attention. You may very well bond with someone over a shared responsibility or concern.
SagittariusYou can start the day preferring to stay under the radar, dear Sagittarius. However, you can feel a surge of emotional energy with the Moon’s move into your sign as the day advances. Constructive conversations are likely with Venus heading into alignment with Saturn and the Moon in harmony. You’re coming across responsibly and perhaps as an advisor. Mercury is still retrograde, and brand new beginnings should probably wait, but today’s energies are solid for laying some groundwork for future success. Gaining a fuller sense of what you can and can’t accomplish is empowering. Conversations tend to run on the serious or business-oriented side now–at this time, you’re interested in what’s truly doable, not fantasies.
CapricornWhile you can start the day in an interactive, outgoing frame of mind, dear Capricorn, with the Moon’s move into your privacy sector, you may feel as if the cosmos want you to keep a low profile. Listen to any instincts you may have to take it easy, as this is a natural period in the lunar cycle for you to slow down and catch your breath. Even so, you’d much rather be proactive today, dealing with problems before they have a chance to grow. It’s a time for relishing the idea of a long-term plan or for bonding with someone over a shared goal, vision, or responsibility. You might even take some pleasure in making a budget, facing a financial situation confidently, or saving money. Paring down is easier if you have a solid goal in mind.
AquariusToday’s energies are good for teaming up or pursuing a special project, dear Aquarius. The Moon moves into your social sector today, connecting with Saturn in your sign while there. As the day advances, Venus heads into alignment with Saturn. You want to be useful and productive, but you also need to have a bit of fun! Today’s aspects are excellent for giving you a keen sense of your capabilities so that you’re neither over nor under-estimating them and making good judgments as a result. Getting serious about a plan or responsibility can be in focus, and it suits you well. You’re taking a more mature and realistic look at things. While you’re clearer than usual, you’re nevertheless at risk of taking on or assuming more than your share of responsibility.
PiscesYou might get the chance to take care of outstanding problems or loose ends, particularly on emotional levels, dear Pisces. Today’s energies are strong for organizing or sorting out problems. With the Moon’s move to the top of your solar chart, you’re focusing more on practical application than learning new things or enjoying new experiences. A Venus-Saturn aspect is also coming into play, and the need to see a relationship or project for what it is can feel a little uncomfortable at first. However, you get an excellent sense of your priorities now, and this empowers you. A stronger conviction that you can reach your goals is building. Making mature choices feels good right now! Taking control of your life and meeting your responsibilities requires time and energy, and transits today put you in a stronger position to see what is and isn’t worth pursuing.
