Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is strong for enthusiasm and decision-making, dear Aries. You could take action on a matter with the cooperation of someone close to you, and this can be especially effective. Not too long ago, Mars was retrograde, and since it turned direct, it’s been slowly chugging along. It’s now picking up speed, and the Sun helps it out with a harmonious aspect today, increasing energy and motivation levels. This re-energizing influence is perhaps most apparent with your friendships, communications, personal interests, projects, transportation, group associations, neighbors, siblings, and classmates. There can be renewed interest in learning, connecting, and personal pursuits. You feel more capable of moving forward, overcoming obstacles, and leaving bad habits behind. Your confidence is building, and ventures or ideas are gaining momentum.
TaurusYou’re likely to enjoy a building passion for an idea or a project, dear Taurus, with the Sun and Mars in harmony. Not long ago, Mars was retrograde, and it’s been moving along slowly but surely. Today’s Sun-Mars transit helps build up momentum. As such, you can experience a lovely re-energized feeling with business and financial matters. Business and reputation are healthy, active, and empowering, particularly if you show a spirit for advancement and excitement about the future. Your desire to be efficient kicks in wonderfully now. It’s a time to easily work through tricky problems and challenges. You should take advantage of this energy by applying yourself to something constructive. While you’re usually more deliberate, today, you are decisive and pushing forward on instincts.
GeminiMars, currently in your sign, is picking up speed and connecting well with the Sun today, dear Gemini, and you’re regaining motivation and enthusiasm. It wasn’t long ago that Mars was retrograde in your sign, and you may have felt sluggish. Today, you receive a boost or find a reason to pursue your dreams! There is a competitive feeling that’s building inside you, and this is motivating rather than pressuring. You may have a strong desire to move forward with a project, educational goal, or plan for an extracurricular activity, as well as a willingness to take the necessary steps. You’d rather not discuss things and prefer to get on it! Enjoy this rush of energy and allow the desire to take action to fill you, as this is a time when doing something reasonable but just a little different can be a great learning experience.
CancerYour confidence is improving steadily, dear Cancer, and today’s Sun-Mars harmony clinches it–you’re bolder and more decisive. You’re ready and willing to take charge of a matter that seems long overdue. There may have been procrastination or a feeling that you were “on the fence,” and something happens now that clears your head about moving forward or taking a bold step toward your goals or desires. Mind you, Mars is still transiting your privacy sector, and this suggests you’re in a hatching phase for projects and plans, generally speaking. This doesn’t mean, however, that you’re stagnant — far from it, and you’ll see proof of that today. It can be a good time to make a beautiful connection within (self-discovery) or with someone special. Being direct or a bit daring in your emotional life pays off.
LeoToday’s energies favor partnering or teaming up to get things done, dear Leo. Your mood is cheerful and optimistic, helping you complete projects and connect more confidently with others. Mars was recently retrograde, and although it’s been direct for more than two weeks, it is now picking up more speed. Today, it gets support from the Sun, which is good news for your motivation levels. You can feel re-energized about or through a partner, friend, or associate. Enjoyable conversations and connections are in focus, and it can feel great to cooperate with someone or move ahead with something important to you. Relationships tend to benefit from a plan, activity, or special mission.
VirgoThe Sun and Mars harmonize today, dear Virgo, and this can generate not only the desire to take decisive action but the confidence to forge ahead. Your ruler, Mercury, is also doing well today, and you can feel especially positive. You’re likely to apply yourself with purpose and intent, and with the Sun in your sector of work and service connecting with Mars in your career and life direction sector, you’re willing to put in the effort to reach your goals. There can be outside recognition for those things that you do above and beyond the call of duty, or you could allow the pride you feel for your efforts to motivate you further. Goals seem within reach. After some months of reassessing your career or life path, motivation is returning to pursue your dreams and grab what you want from life.
LibraToday’s energies are strong for making the best of things, dear Libra. You’re regaining confidence and clarity. With the Sun and Mars harmonizing in compatible signs, you’re spirited and self-expressive. This transit could prompt you to take on an adventure, however big or small, or it can inspire you to put more effort into achieving a goal or dream. In recent months, you may have been more focused on refining your approach to getting what you want in life than you have been actually pursuing your desires. However, motivation is now rebuilding, and you’re becoming more direct and active, primarily because you have a stronger sense of purpose. You’re in particularly good shape for pursuing intellectual interests and studies. Romantic prospects are also good. If you’ve been waiting for word from someone special, it may very well come today.
ScorpioThe Sun in your home sector harmonizes with Mars in your intimacy sector today, dear Scorpio, and you can be motivated to improve your domestic or inner world. After some months of uncertainty, you’re more confident and direct about pursuing a special project or relationship. Things seem to flow naturally, and interference is minimal today, which makes it easier to take action and make effective decisions. You’re ready to take the lead if this moves you forward, as you have no desire to dwell on the past. It can also be a fine time to investigate, research, or get a lead on a matter than once stumped you. Relationships benefit from a more straightforward, direct approach, activities, or a special mission to share.
SagittariusToday can be busy and active, dear Sagittarius. You’re looking ahead and finding ways to innovate. The Sun, currently transiting your communications sector, harmonizes with Mars in your partnership house, favoring teaming up and getting things done. There can be a healthy and constructive conversation that helps you feel you’re moving forward, but more importantly, you’re ready to act on a plan or idea. You’re also prepared to take on a challenge. It wasn’t too long ago that Mars was sluggish and looking back, but it is now picking up speed, and you’re regaining motivation and spirit. You may be pleased to work with someone else, even if your independence is strengthening, and you might solve a nagging problem together.
CapricornBoosting your inner self helps you express yourself more creatively and from the heart, dear Capricorn. It’s a fine day for attracting positive energy into your life. It’s also strong for moving your plans forward, particularly those that have to do with money management and duties or work. You’re enterprising and resourceful, and you can feel a building desire to take action on a money, work, or health matter. Decisions revolving around finances, belongings, or personal possessions come suddenly or are made instinctively right now. It wasn’t very long ago that Mars was retrograde in your work and health sector, but is now picking up speed, refueling your motivation to get things done. You feel more accomplished and proud of yourself for taking charge; as confidence builds, things come together nicely.
AquariusThis is a strong time for creative, recreational, or romantic endeavors, dear Aquarius, and for moving personal plans along.

You are more courageous and might approach someone or pursue your desires confidently and directly. You feel braver as life tends to speed up, and you worry less about your next move. You may have more faith in a love relationship, a pet project, or your feelings. Independence and spontaneity are more important to you today than usual. You may be making some waves, but all in the name of progress! You are expressing your unique qualities naturally. Competitions today may run in your favor.
PiscesDecisions are easier to make today, dear Pisces, and you enjoy the new energy pouring in. There can be a strong urge to do something out of the ordinary or to take affirmative action, particularly behind the scenes, around the home, or in your personal life. With a supportive Sun-Mars transit, it’s easier than usual to put your emotional needs first or put something that’s been weighing you down behind you. Home-related projects get a green light today. While things may have been sluggish in recent months, they’re picking up speed now. You’re unlikely to overthink before leaping into action. You are more aware of your need to feel secure in the future, and you may take steps towards future security goals, particularly related to home and family.
