Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou could be uncertain of your feelings or general direction today, dear Aries, and discomfort with this can prompt the need to draw clearer lines. The Sun aligns with Saturn in your solar eleventh house, and feeling left out could prompt a mission to get to a more comfortable position. If you receive some advice, it might ultimately be helpful, but not necessarily what you want to hear. You could find that an old obligation comes up now, likely involving a friend, or if you’ve been feeling alone or without an anchor socially, you can feel the need to make a change now. For some, this is about a strategy or plan to work towards a long-term goal. Fortunately, your resolve to improve your life, particularly to add more structure and discipline, is building, and seeing things clearly now can help this further. Aim to focus on what you know and what you know you can control and take things one step at a time. There’s a spotlight on your responsibilities, restrictions, or limits, but it’s temporary, helping you to see a way through. Making refinements or improvements is the next step.
TaurusThe Sun meets Saturn in your solar tenth house today, dear Taurus, reminding you of your goals and responsibilities. You can have a real sense that you need to tighten your belt, work a little harder, and make improvements, particularly with your work or duties. The spotlight is on your performance now, whether this attention is coming from within or the outside world. You might assume more responsibilities and feel the accompanying loss of freedom now, but you may very well appreciate the clarity that comes from seeing the reality of a situation. People might recognize your accomplishments, or they might temporarily see the flaws. It’s an important week for establishing your priorities. Taking a hard look at things might be necessary, or you could feel temporarily disappointed before refueling with the motivation to improve. With Venus in harmony with Neptune today, you might also seek activities that refresh your spirit and connections that inspire you.
GeminiWhile you could be wrestling with a lack of direction or a feeling of being overwhelmed today, dear Gemini, it’s a strong day for reorienting yourself. The Sun and Saturn meet in your solar ninth house today, and you can feel a great need to make productive use of your time, especially on a mental level. You’re in great shape for boosting your practical skills. Serious discussions are possible now. If enthusiasm is up and down, aim to slow things down just a little so that you can better assess the situation realistically. There can be a dose of reality to deal with, although it may take a bit of time before things are objectively clear. You’re at an important juncture for reassessing goals and recognizing your priorities. You might recognize the need to concentrate, focus, and specialize–it’s a period for adding more structure to your life by setting reasonable but firmer goals.
CancerThere can be a reminder of a financial obligation or responsibility today, dear Cancer, or there can be a reality to face in an intimate relationship. You might instead reassess certain habits or activities. The Sun meets Saturn in your solar eighth house today, and it can motivate you to make important changes or commitments. This transit can shine a light on problem areas, particularly in areas related to support, an intimate relationship, or a financial matter. Problems with sharing and intimacy can magnify, and they can be confusing. In truth, some unreliability in your support system that you may have been experiencing can ultimately get you to a place of solid footing. Once beyond the exaggerated stage of your realizations, you’re in a great position to accept or reject the reality of a project, endeavor, or relationship. Drawing boundaries may be appropriate. Seeing things for both their strengths and weaknesses helps you to make the right decisions.
LeoWith the Sun and Saturn meeting in your partnership sector today, dear Leo, you might feel the weight of responsibilities to others or the heaviness of a close relationship. If others demand too much of you, you may need to set some boundaries. You may find reasons to take stock of your commitments and debts to others–it’s a good time to consider meeting someone halfway. Alternatively, you could feel a little let down if you don’t have someone you can genuinely say is in your corner. Circumstances may be revealing the less flattering side of others or even of yourself through partnership. While flaws can appear bigger than they objectively are, seeing them now can help with clarity. Decisions are easier when you can see people and situations for their strengths and weaknesses. Problem areas in a relationship tend to magnify. Still, you’ll be in a good position to reassess your needs from your relationships once you’ve gotten beyond the exaggerated stage of realizations.
VirgoThere can be some moodiness today, dear Virgo, but don’t let doubt obscure your vision of where you’d like to be. If you can’t quite see it right now, don’t pressure yourself to know something that may need more time to reveal itself. The Sun meets Saturn today, and responsibilities at work or with chores and routines tend to magnify. Conversations are heady, or your thoughts are heavy. Consider that as you face realities, you’ll feel more confident about moving forward with realistic expectations. Aim to work hard and do what you can, without pushing yourself too hard. It’s a time for following the rules instead of cutting corners. You might reassess certain tasks, seeing flaws or weak spots, but give this time, since transits today may temporarily exaggerate the negative side of things. You’re likely to see your priorities more clearly now, and if a new game plan is necessary, you’re ready to make it. While there can definitely be a serious vibe to the day, you might find that a partner, personal pursuit, or networks provide relief.
LibraThe Sun meets with Saturn today, dear Libra, inclining you to see or consider the more serious side of your relationships, alliances, and projects. There could be a critique or new information that frames things differently, leading you to a new direction or a change in your game plan. Avoid committing to something in the heat of the moment as it may end up harder to fulfill than you had expected–take your time with new ideas or resolutions. Recommitting to a project or goal may be in order after you’ve taken some time to explore all your options. With Saturn involved, it’s important to consider ways to simplify and streamline your life to improve it all around, but the negative side of things may temporarily magnify. Reality has a way of making itself known. However, this can be a particularly heavy or negatively skewed “reality” that can be sobering but not necessarily accurate if you’re also ignoring the spiritual or imaginative elements. This process can motivate you to make necessary improvements, mainly related to structure and self-discipline, making it an excellent time to apply yourself to your work or craft.
ScorpioYou could be feeling a bit overwhelmed or unsure where to begin or what to do to straighten things out today, dear Scorpio. However, the need to get back on track is strong with the Sun and Saturn coming together in your solar fourth house. Reminders of your responsibilities to family or those close to you are likely to arise with the Sun shining its light on Saturn’s obligations, duties, and need for rules and structure. It makes sense to deal with pressures or duties instead of putting them off. Others may not be jumping to help you or to cooperate at the moment, but aim to take care of what you can independently if necessary. Positively, you can get a real push to get going or get organized, serious, and productive. If you’re not yet ready to go ahead, it can be a time to commit to organizing home life or a family or home-related project. You’ll feel stronger if you meet your obligations, and it’s a good idea to start small and go from there.
SagittariusYou can feel a bit disorganized or overwhelmed, dear Sagittarius, which can prompt a strong need to get organized. You could take things quite seriously or think a little more critically today with the Sun and Saturn coming together in your communications sector. It’s not easy gaining others’ cooperation, so aim to handle things independently just for now. Life could present you with work that you thought was complete and now have to redo, or an unexpected errand or duty pops up and frustrates you. Responsibilities seem overwhelming temporarily, but if you can take the time to tackle matters one at a time, step by step, you’ll discover that you can handle it. Aim to cut out distractions if you need uninterrupted time. Be extra cautious when making important statements, as your words have more staying power than normal.
CapricornThere can be a reality to face or responsibility to meet in your financial life today, dear Capricorn. Handling events with maturity is the best strategy when the Sun meets Saturn as it does today. This yearly event has been happening in your sign in recent years, but this year, it’s occurring in your resources sector. This transit tends to shine the light on problem areas, in turn allowing you to see what you should do to improve and strengthen your life. There can be a reality to face or responsibility to meet in business or with money. Aim to take an honest look at a plan, project, or area of your life that has been holding you back. Keep in mind that most good, long-lasting programs are slow and steady ones. Work on one problem at a time, step by step, and you’ll be in great shape. Financial obligations have their way of making themselves known. Instead of worrying excessively, aim to do whatever you can to meet them and resolve to get organized.
AquariusThere can be a new perspective on a matter, redirecting you along a new path, dear Aquarius. The Sun shines its light on a responsibility or the structure of a project or plan, and it may be time to reconsider some details. This year, the Sun meets Saturn in your own sign, and it can serve as a reminder of your limits or the reality of a matter. Ideally, it motivates you to clean up an issue that you’re better off leaving behind you. It’s a little easier to see the negative side of things today, but eventually, you’ll arrive at a balance and some clarity. Aim to meet your responsibilities, but watch for taking yourself too seriously. You are maturing in many ways with wise and practical Saturn in your sign, and today, your responsibilities and possibly the problem areas in your life are in the spotlight. It can be discouraging at first, as you may feel alone or unsupported temporarily. Refuse to be put into a mold and take an honest look at what needs improving. This is a time for recognizing weak or vulnerable areas of your life so that you know, in no uncertain terms, what needs strengthening going forward.
PiscesIt may be that some boundaries, rules, and structures need to dissolve before you can rebuild them to better reflect the person you have become, dear Pisces. With Saturn in minor challenging aspect to Neptune, and the Sun involved today, you’re facing reality on a matter, which moves you forward. You may need to attend to responsibilities or obligations, such as giving support to someone, which in turn can be spiritually rewarding. Something from the past that was left unresolved can reappear and demand your attention. There could be a difficult decision or issue weighing heavily on your mind today, and it’s best to give it a bit of time. Moving ahead with less emotional baggage should be the goal now. Becoming more aware of a limitation can be a temporary downer. However, it can also motivate you to get more organized.
