Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies tend to stir your passions or your need for action, dear Aries. Especially as the day advances, there’s a tendency to go a little too far with this as we head toward a Mars-Jupiter square. Watch for making too-quick decisions that happen just for the sake of doing something. There can be a sudden and powerful urge to set things right with money, earn more, or take on an ambitious project. While the courage and confidence to get things going are great, you should tame impulses to go too far or spend too much. There is a bit of a gambler in you today, but it might instead be about defending yourself if others are not showing their respect. Impulsive and over-the-top energy aside, this can be a decent time to stretch your mind and consider possibilities that you wouldn’t imagine on another day.
TaurusEnergy levels are more robust these days with Mars in your sign, dear Taurus, but Mars is heading into a square to Jupiter today, generating courageous and bold energy. However, the tendency to go over the top runs high, and it’s hard to keep a lid on it! Your independence and freedom are certainly more important to you right now. Something can be exaggerated, particularly with your reputation or career today. Any activity that stifles or limits can be hard to take under this transit. Friction with others is possible, but it may not be worth pursuing in the end, so do what you can to keep things moderate. Telling the truth is important to you, but doing so thoughtfully is just as vital. It’s not the best time for activities that feel lifeless and dull. You can feel ready to assert yourself, but it’s all too easy to blow your luck by pushing too far with it, and it’s best to watch for overdoing things. Impatience is another way you might get in over your head. Aim to keep things moderate, but do consider ways to stretch your mind to consider new possibilities. The Moon spends the day in your sign, boosting your visibility and emotional barometer further.
GeminiToday’s transits tend to keep you in the background for rest and replenishment, dear Gemini, but they also stir up big feelings and a desire for action. Especially as the day advances, the tendency to go over the top, indulge, or exaggerate is strong. An impending Mars-Jupiter square stirs your desires. It may be best to take a deep breath and wait until a better day to commit yourself to something big since this transit can prompt overshooting. There can be great enthusiasm and passion stirring, but also a tendency to overlook the benefits of what you already have in search of greener pastures. Plans made now may not work out later if you’re overshooting. Promises may be well-intentioned but could be given in the heat of the moment or based on magnified feelings. Tensions and restlessness can lead to poor choices, but they can also prompt you to make some important changes and improvements.
CancerYou can easily become all fired up and motivated today, dear Cancer, but especially as the day advances, try to tame a tendency to want too much. It’s true that if dissatisfaction leads to new developments and improvements, or the courage to resolve a problem, you can go far. Ride on this energy if it takes you in this direction. There can be wonderfully passionate moments and feelings in love and friendship, but perhaps some tension if you are trying to push a matter that is better left alone for the time being. Your focus can be on how you think things should be, and you can be impatient for this ideal to materialize quickly. Decisions involving or made with friends can be too hasty. Do your best to tame a tendency to go too far as Mars and Jupiter head toward a square aspect.
LeoToday’s energies can stir up big feelings, dear Leo, but also some impatience and possibly some arrogance. You can be very sensitive to feeling confined or limited this week, especially with a person, career, relationship, or reputation matter. Don’t be quick to judge today since there can be extenuating circumstances that will reveal themselves later. While you’re inclined to jump to a decision, more research may be necessary, and details may need extra attention later. Certainly, your enthusiasm for reaching your goals skyrockets, but you may need to watch for a tendency to overshoot as Mars and Jupiter head towards a square aspect. It’s best to tap into the day’s energies to dream up new ideas and possibilities but avoid pushing a matter to achieve instant results. Your timing will improve soon, and it may be best to wait things out. In the meantime, connect with your strong desire to grow and improve.
VirgoThe Moon harmonizes with your sign today, dear Virgo, bringing out your natural courage. However, a Mars-Jupiter square influences the day, and impatience with routine matters can be a problem. Your sights are set very high, and you might want to make small changes to dull and lifeless areas of your life. Part of you wants to go hard with your work, chores, or health, while another part altogether needs some space and a change of pace. Aim to connect with your strong desire to improve, but do consider taming the tendency to go over the top. It may be best to consider the changes and improvements you want to make, but not to rush into them. Patience will help prevent disorganization. Energy runs high, although it’s not particularly stable. You can feel as if the sky’s the limit, but if the need to make a change is a very sudden and urgent feeling, watch what you’re doing.
LibraYou can feel excited about making changes today, dear Libra, but tensions can emerge, stemming from a desire to take on too much, too fast. Excess can be a problem in many areas of life right now, especially in romance and entertainment. However, if you can manage to keep things on an even keel, it’s a good time to connect with your courage to improve and grow. Avoid making big promises until you’ve thought things through since today’s enthusiasm and optimism could lead you to misjudge how much you will be able to handle later. However, you can be very spirited and dream up possibilities that you might overlook on a regular day. Creative ideas can be fantastic, but you’ll want to avoid locking things down until you’ve considered the finer details. If you win at something today, try to accept it and avoid pushing your luck further.
ScorpioToday’s energies tend to stir your need for change, dear Scorpio. You can find yourself quite impatient with things that feel too confining or dull. Especially as the day advances, the desire to grow and improve is a useful one, but if overdone, you might pass over the good things and forget to appreciate them. We’re heading toward a square between Mars and Jupiter, and while this transit can generate great enthusiasm, it also brings on the tendency to push your luck. A happy development may lead you to want more. Promises made now aren’t easy to keep later. Watch for hasty behavior, especially with family, a partner, and those closest to you. Try not to pressure yourself to make a quick decision. Positively, you can feel a rush of new energy and courage to handle a long-standing problem.
SagittariusThe day’s energies stir up excitement, dear Sagittarius, as Mars heads toward a square with Jupiter. This influence feels lucky but tends to overshoot! It’s best to avoid impulsive or excessive actions. You may feel that you can do more than is possible, but this can lead to getting in over your head. Today is strong for enthusiasm and awareness of desires that you may have ignored. You may get the courage to push a matter that you have let slide, so don’t discount all impulses now. Sometimes we do need a push to make an important change. However, you may be excited about making improvements and taking on new interests or projects with this aspect but do so carefully and considerately. Energy levels might be high now, but fulfilling what you take on today may not be as easy later. You are excited about accomplishing your duties and projects or interests, making it hard to juggle it all. Jumping into or out of something too quickly may be cause for regret at a later date.
CapricornThe Moon harmonizes with your sign today, dear Capricorn, enlivening you and reminding you of your need to enjoy and express yourself. You can feel a bit competitive or itching to do something differently. Especially as the day advances, there is a tendency to go overboard with a Mars-Jupiter square coming into stronger play. Do your best to tame impulses to overshoot, promise too much, or defend something too vigorously. You can be quite excited about pursuing or taking action with hobbies, leisure activities, romance, or creative pursuits. These days, with Mars in your solar fifth house, you’re more actively pursuing those things that make you feel good and bring you joy. You may want to watch that you don’t try to push something too fast or take on so much that you burn out before you get going. While it’s best to aim for some moderation, don’t discount new ideas for expressing yourself or creating something beautiful, as you are in an especially creative mood.
AquariusToday’s energies seem to excite you about various possibilities, dear Aquarius. You can experience a sudden urge to change or improve your life. It’s best to resist putting pressure on yourself to do everything at once. Consider whether your impulses stem from a genuine need or that you may be expecting far too much of yourself in a short frame of time. You may not find it easy to tolerate problem areas today, but pacing yourself as you resolve things makes the most sense. Plans that have been well thought out can push forward, but gambles are unlikely to fare well today with a Mars-Jupiter square aspect influencing the day. This transit often leads to the overestimation of what’s reasonably possible, and with Jupiter currently in your sign, it’s personal. If the stakes are high, wait for a clearer day. Your needs for independence can clash with the needs of (or for) family and comfort or security.
PiscesToday’s transits tend to pump up your desire for activity and growth, dear Pisces. Especially as the day advances, your enthusiasm builds, but there is some tendency to miss the mark or push too far as Mars and Jupiter head toward a square aspect. Your interests are many, but your time is limited, and it’s best to watch for putting so much pressure on yourself to get something done that you end up impatient and frustrated. It may be best to question whether you truly want or need something before committing today. This can be a time of great enthusiasm, strong drives, and passionate feelings, but also of excess. You can experience a real surge of motivation to resume or take on new projects. Expecting instant results can bring you down and take energy away from what you’re doing. Enjoy the day’s blast of power for moving forward, but keep things real, or look for ways to appreciate the positive things happening now instead of seeking to double your winnings. It’s a fine time for coming up with new plans and schemes, but implementing them may require some refinements and more time.
