Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your creativity sector, dear Aries, enhancing your sign nicely. You find it easier than usual to enjoy and express yourself. Uranus turns direct after several months of retrograde motion. Now and in the coming weeks, this influence gradually renews your spirit for making changes to your approach to business or money. You’re also more courageous about standing up for yourself. Projects may begin some forward motion, but perhaps more importantly, you feel increasingly in charge of making changes rather than feeling that changes are happening to you. It’s an excellent time to develop talents and attend to your money and valuables. It makes sense to wait and see with Venus still retrograde until January 29th and Mercury until February 3rd. However, Uranus turning direct suggests fewer dilemmas and delays. Your ruler, Mars, is in your adventure sector these days, boosting your energy. Still, with the Mars-Uranus minor challenge today, watch for a temper or rebellious feelings that interfere with your goals. Restlessness can make it hard to see the opportunities available to you.
TaurusUranus, currently transiting your sign, turns direct today after a five-month retrograde period, dear Taurus. This move can awaken an urge to make changes. In truth, when a planet turns direct, it still moves slowly, and this means it’s better to ease yourself back into the game rather than push ahead. This goes double with Venus still retrograde until January 29th and Mercury until February 3rd. As such, listen to your needs to take charge of your life, but wait to launch major initiatives. Nevertheless, forward motion, both personally and professionally, is on the horizon. Your independence is becoming a stronger motivating force. Today’s Moon encourages winding down in some manner, but a Mars-Uranus transit can leave you feeling on edge in spots. You may want to watch for impulsive moves or a tendency to follow whims that you might later regret. A craving for novelty can be so non-specific that you end up only spinning your wheels.
GeminiUranus, a long-term guest in your privacy sector, ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Gemini. This direct turn can find you feeling more equipped to let go of negative attitudes and put the past behind you. It can also serve to awaken unacknowledged feelings, desires, and needs. There can be progress related to projects, studies, or a long-term goal. In the weeks ahead, your confidence to put difficult situations behind you increases many times over. With the Moon in your solar third house all day, good energy is with you for communicating and connecting. Still, Mars clashes with Uranus, stirring some restlessness, and you may need a change of pace. The trick is to focus on one thing at a time rather than taking a random approach that seems only to lead to a chaotic feeling. Aim to get in better touch with your desires and goals.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your solar second house, dear Cancer, bringing sound energy for centering yourself, getting comfortable, and enjoying comforts and pleasures. Nevertheless, there are possible tensions today with Uranus turning direct and a Mars-Uranus transit. After five months of retrograde motion, Uranus is now reawakening the desire to make changes in your approach to friends or your social life. This turn can also renew your motivation or spirit to connect with friends. Surprises or revelations are possible related to your happiness goals, friendships, intimate relationships, or shared finances. The emphasis now is on ridding yourself of burdens. If your social connections have been unreliable at best, you’re now ready to fix things or make the best of your situation. Today, you may end up only spinning your wheels if you let yourself get overwhelmed by what you want to accomplish. Take things one step at a time, but do seek ways to change the usual pace and enliven your day.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Leo, bringing a rush of energy to your life and an urge to begin anew. While emotions are strong and clear, desires are not especially easy to decipher today. You may need a change of pace or a sense of purpose to be productive. If you’re not ready to set goals, you can still take advantage by pouring your energy into something creative, physical, or just for fun. Watch for impatience and hasty moves for best results. Uranus turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, and in the weeks ahead, your spirit strengthens for finding your unique path. Career-related matters renew their spark in your life, and motivation levels increase. With Venus still retrograde until January 29th and Mercury until February 3rd, it’s not yet the time to push ahead. However, this change of direction is inspiring and motivating. There can be surprising revelations about your career, life path, or reputation. Soon, enough you’ll be more inclined to go out on a limb, face your fears, and make changes instead of waiting for things to happen.
VirgoYou’re likely to feel a subtle shift in energy and motivation now as Uranus turns direct, dear Virgo. After five months of retrograde motion, this change inspires you to seek new knowledge, meaning, and truth. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be renewing your motivation to put your ideas and beliefs into action. Your general faith in life and the universe increases. With this shift, it’s easier to make meaningful changes. You’re more courageous about learning and sharing. With the Moon in your privacy sector all day, you tend to keep things low-key today. A pause that refreshes makes good sense. However, excess energy can lead to chaos or turbulence with Mars in a minor challenging aspect to Uranus. You may have so much that you want to do that it’s difficult to know where to begin. With self-awareness, you can channel this energy positively by organizing around the home or actively sorting out problem areas in your personal life.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Libra, favoring taking things easy. Still, Uranus turns direct today, and Mars forms a minor challenging aspect to the planet, potentially stirring up all sorts of feelings. You may learn something valuable about a matter that was hidden, overlooked, or otherwise lost in the shuffle, which sets some things in motion. You may open your eyes to a particular truth, perhaps about a relationship, support, or financial matter as Uranus stations direct in your solar eighth house. You may have been feeling a little tired or overwhelmed about dealing with changes in these areas of life while Uranus was retrograde in the past five months. Now, you’re feeling braver and in charge of making changes, which is empowering. Today, watch for impatience. People may not be on the same wavelength as you, and this can produce some tension.
ScorpioUranus turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, bringing clarity in a partnership or with your relationship goals, dear Scorpio. While relationships can be up and down or difficult to predict at times with Uranus in this area of your solar chart, you might come to a better feeling that you can ride with the waves rather than fight them. While Venus remains retrograde until the 29th, you’ll begin to feel that a relationship or your attitude towards partnership is moving forward after a period of reflection, stagnation, or uncertainty. You’re feeling in charge of your life rather than at the mercy of the changes others are making. With Mars in minor challenging aspect to Uranus today, you should probably watch for impatience as it’s likely to push you further from your goals.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit and the higher mind, dear Sagittarius, and you want to grow, learn, and improve. Also today, Uranus turns direct after five months of retrograde motion, and now and in the coming weeks, there may be changes or revelations about work, wellness, and health matters. You feel increasingly in charge of making needed changes in your life that improve your daily routines, habits, work, and projects rather than feel at the mercy of outside forces. There can be forward movement in these areas. You can have an exciting sense that you want to start fresh. Venus and Mercury are still retrograde, suggesting a slow start, but you’re feeling more inspired. Your confidence increases in bringing innovative ideas to your wellness pursuits. Expecting the unexpected when it comes to daily routines and schedules comes more easily now, while in recent months, you may have often felt the victim of chaotic schedules. It’s time to roll with the punches and make things work for you!
CapricornUranus turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, helping to free your heart and creativity, dear Capricorn. Unpredictability in your romantic life continues to be a theme with Uranus a long-term guest in your solar fifth house. However, with its direct turn, you’re more inclined to work with these energies rather than fight them. In the weeks ahead, you’ll be feeling more spirited and ready to free yourself from old patterns of relating. Creative and romantic pursuits, as well as financial and business matters, will begin moving forward, and you’ll find it considerably more straightforward to make decisions along these lines. However, this process takes time, especially with Venus still retrograde in your sign until the 29th.
AquariusUranus turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion, dear Aquarius. As a result, you can experience revelations, surprises, or new thinking revolving around home and family life. As direct motion picks up in the coming weeks and months, you’re less inclined to feel that changes are happening to you and begin to feel more in charge of making needed changes yourself. Fortunately, courage is building after a period of some self-doubt or uncertainty. You’re blossoming now, refueling with confidence. In truth, Mercury is retrograde in your sign, and Venus will remain retrograde until the 29th, suggesting that delays are still part of the picture. However, you’re regaining inspiration.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Pisces, and the details of your life assume more importance. As well, Uranus turns direct today after five months of retrograde motion. Now and in the weeks ahead, Uranus helps boost your confidence in your interests, communications, or studies–you’re opening up to new worlds and opportunities. There can be a renewed interest in studies or projects, and you can feel more empowered to make needed changes in your life. Even so, it’s best to ease rather than jump into action. Keep in mind that even when a planet turns direct, it’s still slow-going, and there’s no need to push hard. You’re learning to express yourself and your ideas more spontaneously and openly, and you’re experimenting with new ways of thinking, learning, and communicating. As well, Venus remains retrograde until January 29th, and Mercury until February 3rd, suggesting the need to take things slowly.
