Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou are expressive and creative today, dear Aries, but while you’ve recognized the need to focus and prioritize, you can feel rebellious today. There can be a good opportunity to enjoy a bonding or learning moment, but there can be some disruptions along the way. You seem to need to distance or detach yourself from something enough to understand where your heart lies. There can be some doubts or concerns that can prevent you from interacting naturally with friends or associates. Others’ reactions tend to be a little unpredictable, and yours can be as well. Watch for impulsive moves that stem from inner restlessness rather than genuine need or desire. A sudden whim or desire, if reasonable, can lead to something interesting, but sweeping moves are probably not wise today.
TaurusA career or reputation matter might disrupt plans or throw you for a loop today, dear Taurus, but this may very well be the time to shake things up a little! Listen to your own need for change while being careful not to jump into something for which you’re not quite ready or prepared. The same old routine can be unsatisfying on some level, and your desire for a change of pace is strong. If you’re not in touch with what it is you truly want, you leave yourself vulnerable to allowing impulsive desires to lead you astray. Otherwise, this is a fine day for approaching things a little differently. Once you recognize your boredom with the usual routine or patterns of relationships, you’re ready to take things into your own hands and enjoy a breath of fresh air.
GeminiThere can be a solid opening up session that’s rewarding today, dear Gemini. There can be emotional ups and downs before you get to that point of release. Part of you may be craving comfort and closeness, while another part of you needs some space. An unexpected situation or realization may destabilize your feelings, and you need a bit of time to process. For best results, and before going out on a limb pursuing your desires, aim to connect with what you truly want! Today’s frustrations can merely point to an unacknowledged need for a change of pace, and the sooner you take this into your own hands, the better. Willingness to grow from misunderstandings can result in a bonding moment. Considering the big picture helps you detach from the little problems.
CancerWhile you recognize the need to hunker down in certain areas of your life, dear Cancer, you can experience restlessness or perhaps some rebellious feelings today. You may only need a breather or the benefits of a change of pace. Today, your feelings or others’ affections for you can be intense one minute, and then they cool down the next, but at the end of it, you may very well learn something new about yourself or a relationship. It’s a good time for getting the courage to do something new. There can be some disruptions regarding a friendship or confusion about boundaries, but detaching yourself just enough to step out of your comfort zone and discover new ways of relating can be helpful.
LeoVenus transits today are complex, dear Leo, and the focus should be on new relating patterns rather than falling back on dysfunctional ones. You’re doing things a little differently these days, and while you’re heading toward improvements, there can be some stops and starts. It may be better to avoid acting on whims, as emotions stimulated today may very well be transient. The source of unrest is more important and deserving of your attention. What you want from the world (or a career) and what you want from your relationships may not seem to mesh well today, but you’ll work this out, finding every reason to learn from the challenges and differences of the day.
VirgoThis can be a time for recognizing the need to make a change with your routines, diets, fitness, or work, dear Virgo. Today’s transits remind you that you need to change things up once in a while to challenge yourself and excel. While energies today are a bit disruptive in spots, as long as you respect the free spirit within, it can be a learning experience! You’re in good shape for identifying areas that require a fix. While you’re gravitating to new routines and more structure or discipline in your daily affairs, there can be a rebellious streak that emerges that can throw you a bit off course. Avoid making hasty decisions, keeping in mind that reactions may not last long.
LibraIt’s a generally strong time for bringing more structure to your life, dear Libra, but part of you could be rebelling against the monotony of it! With today’s Venus-Uranus square, you may feel a little on edge or confused about your desires and deeper feelings, and relationship moves might be sudden and disruptive. It’s best to avoid abruptness. Giving everyone a bit of space and recognizing your need for a break or a change of pace can be the remedy. The tendency can be to miss the mark, even with good intentions, particularly when judging your audience or your own feelings. You could find yourself more talkative, curious, and mentally stimulated than you have been recently. You gravitate to interesting ideas.
ScorpioWhile you’ve recognized the benefits of bringing more structure to your life, dear Scorpio, you can feel a little rebellious about it today. It’s temporary, and it can help you get to a healthy balance. You may not be entirely sure whether you want your space or want to be close to others as Venus forms a square to Uranus. People can be rather difficult to please today, including you. It may be that you need some refreshment or a change, and restlessness emerges if you aren’t in touch with this need. Still, this can be a time of new insights into problems, discovering interesting ways to relate to one another, and getting rid of excess clutter or chaos. Releasing something burdensome on a mental or emotional plane can be in focus, and it’s liberating.
SagittariusYou’re seeking more variety and mental excitement today, dear Sagittarius. A tough schedule or a tendency to rebel against routine can be at the root of unrest today. You’ve indeed recognized the need for more order or discipline in your daily affairs, but you can feel a little bored with rules or restless with monotony right now. Straying from the rules just a little may very well lead to exciting new ideas or experiences. There can be some problems getting your message across, but it’s temporary. Any attempts to lock someone down to a commitment can backfire. People need space today, and so do you! Giving and taking space seems to be the solution to many of today’s problems.
CapricornYou’re recognizing the need to buckle down, dear Capricorn, but you can feel a bit rebellious today, even if you were the one creating the rules! Whims can take hold, making it tempting to take a risk with your money or your heart. Or, a clash of values with someone can prompt a bit of a rebellious streak. Instead of following sudden desires, you might try to pinpoint and understand the reason behind your restlessness and tension. It’s important not to respond to all urges, particularly if they involve impulsive spending or pushing a situation that needs more time to develop and unfold. It’s a time to see that a new approach to your life, and particularly your money or belongings, may be worth your while.
AquariusVenus is currently transiting your sign, dear Aquarius, and it’s busy right now! While you appreciate the need to get serious or buckle down, there is part of you that’s rebelling against the rules, even if you were the one to lay them down. Restless feelings can take over in spots today, and it may be best to honor your need for extra excitement by doing something different or shaking up the routine a little. You might experiment with possibilities and approaches, but avoid sweeping moves for best results. Through a bit of discontent, you may very well learn a little more about yourself. Desires can sometimes lead us on a path quite counter to our true needs, which may be the case today.
PiscesYou could be tempted to jump into or out of a situation quite impulsively today, dear Pisces. Even though you appreciate the benefits of more discipline and structure in your life, part of you feels rebellious in the face of rules or routine. Detours can lead you to a more comfortable understanding of how you honestly feel about a matter. However, it’s best not to make abrupt, sweeping, or confusing moves. Honor the need for change by doing so in steps. Watch for blurting out something that doesn’t represent your true feelings. You may not be in touch with what you want, and it’s wise to expect the unexpected and try to remain as flexible as possible. Pay particular attention to news or information you uncover, mainly related to financial matters and emotional health. There can be some gems discovered now.
