Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThese days, your words and actions are more noticeable and seem to have more consequences than usual, both good and bad, dear Aries. This is because Mercury and Mars are at the top of your solar chart, attracting much attention. Today, these planets join forces, and this aspect not only stimulates your impulsive side but can also give you a natural competitive edge. What’s important now is avoiding blurting something out or pushing your limits (and those of others) too far. Your heart may not be in the equation today, which can point to some form of misrepresentation if you’re not careful. However, you can use this energy to your advantage. It’s a great time to pour yourself into a project that gets you somewhere, and you’re in a fabulous position to tear down obstacles in your path and solve problems. Aim to be forthright yet sensitive to your audience, especially in public or professional arenas. Later today, it comes more naturally to adopt a steady pace and stabilize your emotions or a key area of your life. You’ll find it straightforward to rectify problems or clear up misunderstandings if needed. There can be some helpful advice coming from behind the scenes or in your private world. You have a smart sense of priorities, and you can further practical or business goals and feel quite accomplished as you do. You’re also more able to see value in what you already have rather than reaching for something new.
TaurusYou’re mentally sharp now, dear Taurus, which is excellent for intellectual and business-related endeavors. However, you’ll need to pay extra attention to emotional cues when relating to others on a personal level, as you are living in the mind right now. You can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter, but as you seek, watch where you step, literally and metaphorically. You might easily defend a cause, express an opinion, and get into a heated debate. Educational, work, or travel news may be forthcoming now, mainly things left up in the air recently. You can be excited to learn a subject more deeply. Share your joie de vivre with others now, and enjoy the opportunities that open up as you do. Watch, however, for impatience if others are not moving as quickly as you are, and for sharp words. With Venus and Saturn moving into harmony, being grounded in reality is comforting and appealing later today. This transit encourages you to simplify, honor what’s already working for you, and enjoy a steady pace. It’s a good time to show loyalty to someone, too, as actions speak louder than words today. Your display of strength of character can open up opportunities for you, and good energy is with you for coming to the aid of a friend.
GeminiThis is a time for high mental energy, dear Gemini, with your ruler, Mercury, aligning with Mars. You feel motivated to do things that you’ve been letting slide. An important conversation occurs, or news can arrive on financial matters that gets you going or puts a plan or idea into motion. An intimate conversation can be very revealing now. However, there can be competing feelings regarding the need for freedom, independence, and increased intimacy. As well, there can be a decided emphasis on the mind rather than the heart, so watch for this. However, this transit can give you added courage to express yourself, which can be useful. If you find yourself trying hard to get to the truth of a matter, be sure to respect your own and others’ limits and boundaries. Later today, a Venus-Saturn aspect leaves you feeling satisfied and empowered through a realistic viewpoint of a financial or relationship matter. Realism and truth can help settle your emotions. Simplifying your life is important and can get you feeling on track. Things seem a little more clear-cut, and this helps you make better choices and decisions. Making lifestyle changes thrives mainly because your heart is in it.
CancerMercury and Mars join in your partnership sector, and you can easily become all riled up, dear Cancer, or you experience this through someone close to you. There can be a strong need for taking action, or an aggravation or assertion from a partner who wants to take the lead can be in the spotlight. Someone may be very intent on getting under your skin or is trying to turn you on to an idea or plan. It’s very easy to get yourself into an argument, even if you are not doing so intentionally, so choose your battles wisely! You could find you’re attracting disagreement or conflict today, but a confrontation may be just what a relationship needs. Try to channel the extra energy you have into truly productive activities. This comes more naturally later today. In fact, you can be in the mood for more steadiness and stability with a Venus-Saturn transit coming into play. You gravitate to someone wise and mature, or it’s a time to bond with a person through your values or beliefs, connect with a subject or guide, and enjoy a sense that you’re learning something valuable. Developing useful skills has taken precedence over innovative new techniques in recent years. Honoring the past or tradition can be rewarding. Today, you can feel happily reinforced as you count on someone, and they pull through for you.
LeoToday’s Mercury-Mars alignment winds you up mentally, dear Leo. The pace can pick up surrounding your daily affairs or work, and you can be excited and enthusiastic about putting a plan into action. The desire to sort out problems and iron out flaws can be intense now. Avoid sharp words if you notice that people around you are not as interested in problem-solving as you are. You’re inclined to cut to the chase and quickly get to the heart or root of a problem. This can be an excellent, if impatient, time for getting going on a health, wellness, or work project. The day advances with more patience and a steadier pace. Stability is comforting, in fact, and a bit of routine can be just what you need to feel on track. Getting organized and taking care of business can be enjoyable, and you’re likely to come up with great ideas about doing business, making money, or improving methods and efficiency. Be conservative and moderate in your approach in both work and play right now, and you’ll come out ahead with a Venus-Saturn transit in play. Giving thought to how you can improve your work or income can be fruitful, and conversations about your practical affairs or the information you come across can be helpful along these lines.
VirgoThere’s a strong emphasis on your creative, romantic, or leisure life these days, dear Virgo, and today, you’re anxious to get things going. Decisions made now are sharp and quick but not necessarily reflective of your feelings, so watch for making commitments you may later regret. There is a tremendous amount of mental energy in the first half of the day, and as long as you watch for impulsive or excessively competitive behavior, you’ll enjoy extraordinary courage to express yourself or feel the push to get a project going. Indeed, you are more in the mood for play than work, but you’re also motivated to get something done. Later today, your pace steadies, and you quite like it! Following some rules or getting something into order can be satisfying and even pleasurable. It can feel good to have guidelines. Realities faced now can lead to accepting things as they are, leading to better choices and decisions. Your instincts are excellent for putting your energy into activities that are more likely to thrive and leave you feeling accomplished or empowered.
LibraMental energy runs high in the first half of the day, dear Libra, as Mercury and Mars align. While this transit can push an issue forward, tension is also possible now because it’s at a challenging angle to your sign. Stress in small — not prolonged — doses can be good for you, so if you find yourself worked up today, do something productive about it. If you feel cooped up and restless, you’re more likely to stew about a frustrating matter or get into a disagreement. Take a detour from your usual routine to keep emotional excitement levels high. Family, home, or inner life can be animated, vivid, and exciting. Again, however, this can border on agitation, so be sure to find channels for expressing yourself constructively now. Solve rather than make problems today! Later today, actions or gestures go over well with Venus heading into harmony with Saturn, and they’re favored over words alone. It’s a good time to do something for the people you love and appreciate. You’ll also likely find it easier to concentrate and focus on making yourself happy. Simple pleasures can be more satisfying than usual with this aspect in play. Practical matters and tasks with clear guidelines, expectations, and goals fare the best right now.
ScorpioThe first half of the day holds strong mental energy, dear Scorpio. It’s a time when something that has been dragging on too long frustrates you, and you do something about it. It’s also a “last straw” time. You’re passionate about what you do and excited about sharing ideas or stating your case. Learning is quick and easy now. New ideas can be all-consuming and exciting, or news you were waiting for can finally arrive. It’s best to watch for hasty decisions or communications now, as you may be jumping ahead of yourself and not considering your heart or feelings in the process. Debates can be fun and motivating, and ideas are exciting, but with a Mercury-Mars aspect in play, taking things too personally can lead to problems, and you may need to battle distractions. Consider that you may be too impatient to employ strategy, preferring to dive right in. Later today, taking care of your responsibilities is more enjoyable. With a Venus-Saturn transit, you have a stronger sense of the future and a reverence for things expected to last. As a result, you’re not rushing things–or rushing into things–and a bit of strategy goes a long way now. Your affections stabilize, and your feelings even out.
SagittariusExciting ideas about your things, business, money, or practical matters can occur to you today, dear Sagittarius. You want to solve problems, and you’re not content with merely thinking about something — you want to do something about it! A Mercury-Mars alignment generates much enthusiasm but can also lead to impatience. As sharp as you are today, watch for skipping necessary steps. If you’ve been in a situation where you feel someone is taking advantage of you somehow, you’re likely to get to the “last straw” moment today, and what comes out of your mouth can surprise you! Channel all this mental energy into an important project for the best results. You might also feel the need to defend your values today. A Venus-Saturn influencing later today helps you simplify rather than branch out or innovate, giving you a healthy dose of steadying energy. You can make some nice progress around the home or with family. You more clearly appreciate the practical value of material things, focusing on those that are most useful or will grow in value and importance. You are a little more discriminating and prudent with money and resources, which helps you sort things out. Patience brings rewards.
CapricornYou are exceptionally sharp and on the ball today, dear Capricorn. You are filled with energy and vision, so do your best not to waste it on arguing a point as Mercury and Mars align in your sign. You can be impatient today since everyone seems to be moving at a slower pace than you. Be careful not to push something to a breaking point — or push yourself too hard. Apply your tremendous mental energy to something productive and useful. There can be a competitive feel, which may very well come from within. There can be an idea or project that excites and motivates you now. Focus on improving or bettering your best, and you will do well. Later today, it’s easier to focus on the practical side of things, particularly those things that genuinely make you happy. Shiny, new things are not as appealing right now with a Venus-Saturn aspect in play. You might enjoy fulfilling your responsibilities more than usual, and you come into your own as you manage your expectations. It’s a time for conserving your energy and building your confidence and patience. You might enjoy increased peace of mind as you simplify or keep things moderate.
AquariusMuch is happening inside you today, dear Aquarius, as Mercury and Mars align in your privacy sector. Your thoughts could sometimes race, and your dreaming mind is also active! Unless you’re channeling it into something creative and positive, avoid letting your imagination run away from you. It’s best to gather all the facts before jumping to communicate about a new observation. Watch also for an overactive curiosity — you may think you’re ready for something, but you still need to check in with your heart on the matter. On the other hand, it’s possible that you get to the point of frustration, which acts as a push to say something that needs to be said. There can be new and exciting developments in your private life, a breakthrough related to your attachments, or insights into a long-standing problem. It comes naturally to hold realistic expectations later today, helping smooth out your mood. Some comfort comes from learning the truth about a matter or reaching a more realistic perspective. Knowing the rules enables you to plan. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them as they are, not as you wish they would be, is the key. You might get a real sense of how you can better use your resources.
PiscesCommunications planet Mercury aligns with assertive, energetic Mars today, dear Pisces, revving you mentally. It can be a time when new visions of your future motivate and inspire you, and the key to working well with this energy is to avoid pushing things too far. You might feel more confident about speaking your mind. Friendships can be demanding, exciting, or simply more active and productive than usual. You may be engaging in intensive talks or debates now. A rude awakening or frank discussion might even be in focus, and it can catapult you in a new direction or motivate you to make positive changes. Later today, a Venus-Saturn aspect comes into influence and helps you feel more empowered by facing realities and truths. Or, appreciating the things that are working well in your life can be the key to a steady, pleasant mood. Focusing on one particular task at a time is comforting and beneficial right now. This transit feels right to you, and it can help increase your appeal as you feel more comfortable with yourself.
