Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun and Pluto meet in your solar tenth house today, dear Aries, and intense feelings, and perhaps fears, can come to light. These tend to relate to your life path, ambitions, career, or reputation. You could be concerned about the image you’re projecting or the way your life is heading, but from it, the determination to take more control emerges. If you need to reinvent yourself on a professional or reputation level, this is the time to draw up strategies. Consider reducing activities that keep you from excelling at your work or prevent you from reaching your goals. Later today, watch for moves and words that are too hasty.
TaurusWith the Sun-Pluto conjunction today, dear Taurus, you’re learning that clinging too tightly to your ideas can limit your growth. Freeing yourself from limiting attitudes is a process that’s unfolding a little at a time for you, and it’s empowering. Even so, you may need to work through tension and fear to get to this place. Fears tend to relate to the road ahead, long-term plans, skills, knowledge, and faith in your future. You may not be on the same page as someone important to you just for now, and the results can be stimulating if you see your differences as something to learn from but very frustrating if you expect to make a deeper connection. Watch for pushing yourself too hard today due to impatience to reach a goal. Aim to pace yourself as much as possible.
GeminiWith the Sun and Pluto aligned in your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, you may benefit greatly from doing some in-depth research, investigating, or digging. Or, there can be an important epiphany about a relationship or your inner motivations. It’s a time to recognize your deeper desires and ambitions, although you can also come face to face with some of your fears, which can be revealing. Later today, there’s a tendency for interactions to be tense or strained. You seem to attract grumpy, tense, or otherwise stressed-out people and energy into your life. It’s best to pace yourself and focus rather than allow yourself to be pulled in too many directions.
CancerAim to consider all angles today, dear Cancer. Emotions run high with the Moon in your sign all day. With today’s Sun-Pluto transit, it can be all too easy to see in others what you are trying to avoid knowing about yourself. You can learn a lot about yourself through the events and emotions of the day. You might even take a relationship to a new level. Later today, it may be best to choose your words carefully and avoid hasty moves. Communications can fail if important things are expressed wherever the nuances and subtleties are left to the imagination. Important conversations should be face to face right now for best results. Work might be a little hectic or rushed.
LeoWith the Sun and Pluto in alignment today, dear Leo, you’re tapping into your deeper ambitions. You might get worked up over a problem before getting to a place of empowerment, and it’s important to know when to let go. With some self-honesty, this can be an excellent time to recognize areas of your life that require pruning so that you can move forward, grow, and reach your goals. Later today, you could be short on patience and temper. The desire for out-of-the-ordinary experiences and connections is strong, but restlessness or impatience can mar a good thing. Try not to confuse drama or excitement with love.
VirgoToday’s Sun-Pluto transit gets you in touch with your deeper drives, dear Virgo. Whether it’s recognition for your uniqueness or attention from a love interest, the desire can be hard to deny, and you may feel wanting. You could be dealing with resentment or jealousy. Aim to face your feelings and consider how you can improve your life now that you’re more in touch. You might use powerful emotions to drive a creative work or a new purpose or commitment. Later today, you may be unwittingly letting stress into your life if you attempt to do two things at once. Your interest in work is strong, but try not to mix and match, as you will spread yourself out too thin. Compartmentalize for better results.
LibraWith today’s Sun-Pluto aspect, dear Libra, you can more clearly recognize areas of your life that need a serious update or reboot. It’s a good time to focus on what needs to be left behind or upgraded and transformed. Pluto energy prefers to improve what you already have! You might channel your energies quite successfully into a home-related pursuit. As the day advances especially, you should probably watch for sharp words and impatient actions. Try not to divide your attention or attempt to take on too many different topics and interests, as it can quickly lead to stress and tension.
ScorpioYou’re in good shape for getting in touch with what drives you today, dear Scorpio, as the Sun and Pluto join forces. While it could be a bit disruptive or uncomfortable, this process serves you well if you work with it to grow and improve. Your communications are particularly impactful, or there can be a new development, memory, or concern related to a project or pursuit. The motivation to firm up vulnerable areas or work on fixes can come on strong. With this transit, you can get entirely caught up in a subject. Later today, aim to avoid pushing things that require more time, and watch for too-quick words. There is a tendency to divide your attention in such a way that you feel stressed. Keep things simple for best results.
SagittariusWith today’s Sun-Pluto conjunction, dear Sagittarius, you could be focusing on getting rid of dead weights in your life. This powerful duo can stir strong feelings about your boundaries, income, and values. If you’re fearful or worried about security or financial matters, you can be particularly sensitive about these things now. Aim to get in touch with your deeper desires and ambitions. Later today, disagreements or debates can degrade quickly, as there is a tendency to speak too quickly or insensitively. It’s also important to slow your physical pace. Too much stress leads to tension and can get physical.
CapricornYou are in an excellent place to get your affairs in order today, dear Capricorn, although you may need to combat impatience in spots. A Sun-Pluto alignment shines a light on personal ambitions and fears, which can be slightly uncomfortable if you’ve been out of touch with them, but also highly revealing. Aim to acknowledge your deeper needs, wants, and desires, but then develop a plan to achieve those that are healthy and empowering. Later today, there can be some impatience or rushed communications. Tensions can rise, particularly if you are pulled in different directions. Keep things simple rather than take on more than you can comfortably handle.
AquariusToday’s energies are good for renovating on emotional levels, dear Aquarius. Those things that leave you feeling insecure or guilt-ridden need to go, but first, you need to identify them and their source. A Sun-Pluto alignment helps you see the attitudes or situations in your life that may have driven self-destructive behavior or are at the root of feelings of powerlessness. A bit of discomfort now can motivate you to grow and improve, fueling the determination to rid yourself of problem areas. Watch for impatient words and moves later today. You may be juggling too much, possibly personal interests and the needs or demands of a friend, and tension is likely if you can’t seem to focus on either one or the other.
PiscesToday’s Sun-Pluto alignment offers you a candid glimpse into problem areas, dear Pisces, and it’s up to you whether you use this energy to fixate or to fix! This influence can stir up a need to remove some distractions or less meaningful projects from your life. It also gets you in touch with deep drives and fears revolving around your social life. Later today, watch for impatient moves and speech. Rising tensions tend to come from dividing our attention between two very different drives, and in your case, the topics vying for your attention are likely to be personal or private matters, and professional/work-related. Watch for being short with others if you’re juggling.
