Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesUranus has just turned direct after almost five months of retrograde motion, dear Aries, renewing your spirit to innovate with business or money-making ideas. With this inventive planet waking up, you’re ready to make changes. It’s easier to find answers to recent dilemmas on these fronts, and you’re willing to fight for what you’re worth, if necessary. With the Sun in your solar eleventh house, a New Moon there yesterday, and the ruler of this sector now direct, there’s also vital and forward-looking energy with friendships, networking, happiness goals, dreams, and hopes. It’s a powerful time for collaboration. You’re capable of tremendous effort to further your personal objectives. Even so, miscommunication or delays can be part of the day with a Mercury-Saturn semi-square today. Fortunately, you have people in your corner.
TaurusThere’s somewhat serious or sober energy surrounding your thinking processes and communications today, dear Taurus. You could be dealing with minor inconveniences and have a hard time getting the chance to think clearly or see the big picture. You may need to deal with criticism or fix errors. However, positivity is in the air. Uranus is a long-term guest in your sign and has just turned direct after almost five months of retrograde motion. Your courage increases in the weeks ahead. Your independence becomes a more potent motivating force. This shift might also renew your motivation for work, or it could point to a moving-forward moment related to your life path or career goals.
GeminiUranus, a long-term guest in your privacy sector, has just turned direct after almost five months of retrograde motion, dear Gemini. This change of direction can find you feeling more equipped to let go of negative attitudes and put the past behind you. It can serve to awaken unacknowledged feelings, desires, and needs. There can be progress related to projects, studies, or a long-term goal. Still, the mood can be serious in spots today with a Mercury-Saturn minor challenge. You might deal with more than the usual inconveniences or unwelcome advice and critique, but nothing you can’t handle. Try not to take offhand remarks too seriously, even if they appear contrary. If you put some picky details behind you, you can be particularly motivated to tidy up your life in key ways.
CancerYour spirit for making friends renews with Uranus now past its retrograde cycle in your social sector, dear Cancer. If your connections have been unreliable, you’re now ready to fix things or make the best of your situation. Uranus can awaken your desire to make changes and progress. There can be unexpected revelations in your social circle or surprises related to your happiness goals this week. As well, Uranus rules your intimacy sector, and a matter of attachment or support can move forward and unblock. Nevertheless, today’s energies temporarily favor a more considered, serious approach. Someone may be withholding or critical, but it’s best not to take it to heart. With current transits, it’s easier to see the flaws of a situation before its benefits, and if you don’t dwell, this can help you fix problems.
LeoUranus has just ended its retrograde cycle, dear Leo, after almost five months of retrograde motion. In the weeks ahead, your spirit strengthens for partnerships and finding your own unique path. Your ability to take personal and professional risks and leaps of faith improves. Career-related matters renew their spark in your life, and motivation levels increase. New beginnings, clarity, and improvement are in focus. Today, aim to be easy on yourself and humble with others with a Mercury-Saturn conflict stirring a tendency for negative thinking or unnecessary criticism. Temporarily, you see the flaws more clearly than the positive. Ideally, you use it to fix problems instead of taking it to heart.
VirgoEnergies are on the somewhat serious side in spots again today, dear Virgo, which can work for or against you, or a bit of both! A Mercury-Saturn minor challenge points to possible negative thinking or communicating, as you might deal with misunderstandings or delays. Ideally, it leads to an opportunity to improve and edit, but if it’s out of your control, try focusing on those things you can make right or take a break from overthinking before returning to problem areas.

This change of direction also gives extra punch to your work, health, and routines.
LibraWith Uranus now direct after almost five months of retrograde motion, dear Libra, problems with debts, loans, or financial support are more straightforward and comfortable to resolve.

For best results, be willing to let things go and hope that others don’t harp on minor details.
ScorpioWith a Mercury-Saturn minor challenge today, dear Scorpio, the tendency is to see the problems more than the benefits of a situation. It follows that dwelling on problem areas is all too easy.

Fortunately, there’s a lot of positive to focus on: Uranus has just turned direct after almost five months of retrograde motion, bringing clarity or forward movement in a partnership and with family matters.

It’s time to roll with the punches and make things work for you! Today’s Mercury-Saturn minor challenge can indicate the need to correct errors or deal with delays. There can be a valuable reminder of what’s not working for you, although it can also be annoying or inconvenient. The tendency is to see what’s missing more than your blessings.
