Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith the Sun and Mars in an awkward aspect today, dear Aries, you can feel restless, wanting to push forward, but unprepared or lacking a plan. Helping you pace yourself is a Sun-Neptune transit. You can experience a satisfying shift in your priorities or goals as you consider your dreams and ideals. Material goals become more enjoyable if they are balanced out with things that bring you a stronger sense of purpose or meaning. Daydreaming now can be very good for the soul–and even for business matters! Attention to long-term goals, career, and responsibilities continues, but today’s energies are particularly suitable for considering creative ways to approach your goals. Someone has your back right now, or you can connect with someone with excellent ideas. Today is ideal for gathering inspiration.
TaurusThe emotional focus is on the details of your life today, dear Taurus. It’s an excellent time to analyze, think, and consider. However, you can be itching to do more than is currently possible. Fortunately, today’s Sun-Neptune transit helps you pace yourself. It’s an incredibly romantic or idealistic transit. You’re drawing on your imagination and finding inspiration for your dreams and plans. Routine seems more unappealing than usual–you’d rather enjoy different activities or lines of thought and things that engage and intrigue you. Happily, you can find creative ideas to overcome problems, or placing your faith in a friend can figure strongly. There is more sensitivity to the day’s energies, and it’s working in your favor.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your recreation sector, dear Gemini, where it brings out a need to share your affection with others or to enjoy and express yourself. While getting where you want to go today is not straightforward, a Sun-Neptune transit helps with pacing. Your dreams support you as you regain some inspiration. Forgiveness and acceptance come more easily and can be cleansing and rejuvenating. It’s a good time to clear away leftover issues from the past. Your intuition serves you particularly well regarding career moves or strategies for success. It can be a time for receiving unexpected support or help.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, dear Cancer, and the desire for more warmth, safety, and familiarity is strong. There can be some restlessness to manage today, but a Sun-Neptune transit helps you pace yourself, slowing you down just enough to enjoy your time. Rapport with others can be almost telepathic–this transit connects you with others who help with a lucky break or valuable life lesson. As you look at a problem or situation in a new light or put your faith in someone (or something), you find it easier to relax. You may receive good reviews or feedback. It’s particularly wise to listen and learn today. Treating all as equals can be enlightening and can open doors.
LeoThere can be some tension stirring in your social life today, dear Leo. Consider that this is mainly about the need to grow and improve, and think of ways you can do so while preserving your independence and sense of security. Fortunately, today’s Sun-Neptune transit encourages a happy, go-with-the-flow attitude. While you’ve been feeling very much in charge of taking care of your daily affairs, you benefit from considering the imaginative or creative side of the equation. You are likely to get the support and the information you need now. Confidence comes from a sense that everything will fall into place with a bit of patience. Trusting your inner guide comes more naturally. While you should take the time for self-understanding before making big moves, you’re also in good shape to unwind. Pulling back from a problem can help you visualize the solution.
VirgoWith today’s Sun-Neptune transit, your view of people is more idealistic, romantic, or influenced by your fantasies and ideals, dear Virgo. You’re bringing more imagination, creative flair, and compassion to your relationships, perhaps even some gentle drama! It feels good to accept, have faith, and enjoy. There can be some random elements to the day, and you may face some obstacles or mixed-up plans, but you take things in stride. You’re more able to enjoy the moment.
LibraWhile there is some tendency to complicate a problem today, dear Libra, a Sun-Neptune transit helps smooth things over. You’re tuning into the creative, imaginative, and artistic side of your life, and you bring extra compassion and understanding to family and work relationships. Work done at home–or on the home–can be inspired now! You’re at your best when you’re participating in activities and performing duties that foster your creativity and desire to grow, contribute, and improve. While you’ve been craving tangible results, you’re now seeing the bigger picture. There can be some restless spots today, but if you look for the pause that refreshes, you’re likely to find it.
ScorpioWhile there can be some stop-and-go energy today, dear Scorpio, a Sun-Neptune sextile helps you make the best of it. Even with some resistance or obstacles in your path, you tend to take things in stride. Transits encourage you to express yourself with a unique flair. You more readily connect with your spiritual goals, compassion, and intuition; it can feel quite magical! An experience or person might expand your perspective. Finding commonality with someone unexpected might figure strongly now. There can be pleasures and inspiration through short excursions or casual chats. Creative entertainment can be good for your soul now.
SagittariusWhile you’ve felt an itch to do something new or push ahead, dear Sagittarius, today’s Sun-Neptune transit plays to your imagination, encouraging you to seek inspiration as well. It’s a good time for acceptance and personal enjoyment. You might choose to slow yourself down and consider your most important goals and values. It’s a magical time for reassessing current paths and thinking up ways to flesh things out so that they are more fulfilling. On a practical level, it can be a good time to get a great deal or a pass on a problem that has weighed on your mind. You want to make your life feel more secure and comfortable now, and you might stumble upon interesting information, gifts, or purchases that help you move towards these goals.
CapricornThe urge to do something new or push your goals forward is strong, dear Capricorn, but it’s best to pace yourself. Today’s Sun-Neptune transit encourages you to slow down, pause, reflect, or take stock. With this transit, considering what you may have been missing or what might help round out your life more fully comes naturally. Ask yourself whether your highest goals and ideals are well-represented in your current plans. If the answer is “no,” you’re likely to think up some refinements. You’re encouraged to put more faith in yourself and in life itself! Your powers of persuasion are in fine form today. It feels right to ease down and unwind. Still, opportunities for learning, sharing ideas, and teaching can emerge.
AquariusYour desire to excel or explore something different is building, dear Aquarius, but your need for personal time is also compelling. Today’s Sun-Neptune transit helps you take a healthy step back and get to a better position mentally. Putting your fears and tensions aside comes most naturally. Helping others or volunteering your support or services can be rewarding now. You can feel inspired today, especially appreciative of the natural world. Connecting with your spiritual or imaginative needs can round out your life nicely. Ultimately, it leads to more clarity and better decisions.
PiscesWith today’s Sun-Neptune harmonious transit, it’s easy to take the high road, dear Pisces. You find it natural to accommodate others, and the connections you make now are satisfying or rewarding. There is some tension stirring and restlessness to manage, but an overriding desire for a stronger sense of meaning or purpose leads you to slow down and connect with your intuition. It’s also a good time to enjoy common aspirations with someone. Letting go of ego issues is something you do better than other signs, and it’s excellent for bonding with friends. Pleasant and unexpected connections or events can occur now. Your imagination is in fine form.
