Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could feel that others are overstepping their bounds and asking you to do too much in the first part of the day, dear Aries. Resolving to define and enforce boundaries from now on can be most helpful. There are better times for important financial transactions or clarity in love relationships. It might also help to let go of the need to know or fully understand your relationships for the time being. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Pluto alignment that will happen in your solar tenth house, bringing intense feelings and perhaps fears to light. These relate to your life path, ambitions, career, or reputation. You could be concerned about the image you’re projecting or where your life is heading, but emerging from it can be the determination to take more control. If you need to reinvent yourself on a professional or reputation level, this is the time to develop strategies. Consider reducing activities that keep you from excelling or that block your progress.
TaurusEarly today, areas of life that may be up in the air or unclear include friendships, boundaries in your relationships, work, support, or intimacy, dear Taurus. You may be dealing with a romantic or social disappointment, but the good news is that it’s clearing the way for more clarity. In fact, you’re making room for new and improved goals and turning your focus to those things that matter more. Ride this out — it’s likely just a brief time of being out of sync. The day progresses far more purposefully. The Sun and Pluto head toward alignment in your solar ninth house, asking you to transform and grow through your beliefs, ideas, and attitudes. Someone or something could challenge how you see things, and you can either resist or grow through the experience! It’s easy to see 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. Still, 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, and overcoming them can be a mission now.
GeminiA minor letdown may send you on a detour early today, dear Gemini, but it can be completely worth it in the end. If you strive to enjoy the moment without borrowing from the future, you can have some fun, particularly on a creative level. Some restlessness is possible, but as the day advances, it’s far easier to focus. The Sun and Pluto are heading into alignment in your solar eighth house, and you can benefit from in-depth research, investigating, or digging. Instead, 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 in the process, which can be revealing.
CancerEarly today, watch for having your blinders on and resolve to pay more attention to your needs for inspiration and imagination in the future, dear Cancer. However, the day advances with far more purpose and direction. We head toward a Sun-Pluto conjunction, and you can learn a lot about yourself through the events and emotions of this time! You might even take a relationship to a new level. Relationships or feelings about someone can be intense. It can be all too easy to see in others what you are trying to avoid knowing about yourself. Your interactions show you sides of your own nature that you may not have seen or acknowledged. Aim to consider all angles!
LeoAim to explore different ways to enjoy yourself early today, dear Leo, but avoid pinning your hopes on speculative ventures or elusive people for now. The day progresses with more consistency, and your focus tightens. With the Sun and Pluto approaching alignment, 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.
VirgoIt can feel inconvenient to face reality about a person or situation early today, dear Virgo, but it can save you a lot of time and energy in the long run. However, the Sun heads toward alignment with Pluto in your solar fifth house, and feelings heat up as the day advances. If you’ve struggled with whether you sincerely care for–or have entirely gotten over–a situation or person, the Sun might now illuminate your deeper feelings, desires, and fears. 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, or you could be dealing with resentment or jealousy. Aim to face your feelings and consider how to improve your life now that you’re more in touch. For example, you might use powerful feelings to drive a creative work, new purpose, or commitment.
LibraFeeling a tad drained of energy can stem from wavering motivation and emotions early today, dear Libra. After all, wrestling with doubt or feelings of discontent can be exhausting! As the day advances, your focus tightens. With the Sun heading toward Pluto, you can more clearly recognize areas of your life that need a serious update or reboot. It’s an excellent time to focus on what needs to be left behind or upgraded and transformed. Pluto energy prefers to improve what you already have! This transit illuminates areas of resentment or overattachment. With extra insight or self-awareness, it’s easier to solve problems. You might recognize buried desires or resentments, particularly related to your personal life, family, and home matters. You might channel your energies quite successfully into a home-related pursuit.
ScorpioTap into your empathy and compassion early today, dear Scorpio, but avoid over-idealizing someone, something, or a situation. The remainder of the day helps you take the time to learn your true needs. As the day advances, your ability to get in touch with what drives you increases as the Sun and Pluto head into alignment. While it could be disruptive or uncomfortable, this process serves you well if you work with it to grow and improve. Your communications are particularly impactful, or a new development, memory, or concern can be 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.
SagittariusEarly today, stopping to appreciate what’s already in place will bring the most satisfaction, dear Sagittarius. However, ignoring your spiritual needs is not an option, and it’s important to listen to feelings of lack or disappointment. The Sun and Pluto head toward an alignment in your solar second house, illuminating your deeper ambitions and fears, especially about your earning power, feelings of self-worth, money matters, and security. It’s an excellent time to create strategies to spend and save more effectively, primarily related to pruning and reducing. Getting rid of dead weights in your life is what this transit is about! This powerful duo can stir up strong feelings about your boundaries, income, and values. Certainly, if you’re fearful or worried about security or financial matters, you can be particularly sensitive about these things now.
CapricornFeelings of discontent or longing can be vague, and whims might mask the things you are honestly missing early today, dear Capricorn. Keeping expectations of yourself, others, relationships, and situations reasonable can protect you from disappointment, but don’t shield yourself–it may be that you need to feel vulnerable to understand your deeper needs! The day advances with more focus and intensity. An upcoming 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 healthy and empowering goals.
AquariusUncertainty doesn’t always feel great, but letting go of a burning need to define things or to be “in the know” can help you a lot early today, dear Aquarius. The day advances with more focus, however. Energies are good for renovating on emotional levels. 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 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.
PiscesEarly today, avoid band-aid fixes if it means misleading yourself or others, dear Pisces. Putting certain things off can end up costing you more. Watch for misjudging the value of something now. As the day advances, taking charge comes naturally and can be enjoyable with the Sun and Pluto heading toward alignment. While this transit can illuminate difficulties with friends or complicated emotions about your social life, what emerges from this process can motivate you to make connections, start fresh, or make repairs. You get a candid glimpse into problem areas, 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 distractions or less meaningful projects from your life.
