Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars moves into your career and reputation sector today, dear Aries, where it will transit until February 13th. Because Mars is your ruling planet, this ambitious influence is powerful. It’s a time for taking charge of your career, life path, or life direction. In recent weeks, you’ve been focusing on making your life more enjoyable and interesting, but you’re gradually shifting your attention toward taking care of business, performing, and handling your responsibilities. You can feel highly motivated to go forward on a professional or lofty project or goal. You also want to have things run your way! There may be times during this cycle that you feel you are on the hot seat. You can often come across as wanting to dominate or compete, which can ruffle some feathers. You might cultivate a straightforward yet considerate manner, particularly with authority figures and business associates, for maximum success. You’re motivated to perform and accomplish, and you prefer to be your own boss right now.
TaurusMars moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Taurus, boosting your energy and motivation levels until February 13th. You’re turning a corner with confidence and courage. You’re especially eager and energetic now — your joie de vivre comes out to play. You are in sync with your natural physical and energy expression, and there is a braver quality to you, in general, that attracts more adventure to your life. It comes after an introspective trend so that your eagerness to experience life without worrying too much about the why, where, and what can be particularly refreshing. Symbolically, you are beginning to move on instead of nursing your feelings and suspicions. It’s a great time for non-routine activities. At the same time, your appetite for learning can expand. Today, however, you can experience a compelling drive to be productive.
GeminiMars moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Gemini, where it will visit until February 13th. This shift releases its direct pressure on your sign, which has been in effect since late November. It puts you in a good place to sort out issues related to sharing and power dynamics in relationships. This transit animates and energizes your private world. During this cycle, you can put considerable energy into your relationships and/or self-understanding. You are more interested in making internal changes now, which can result from external conflicts. It can be a deep, passionate time when you’re particularly courageous about dealing with your inner demons and the trickier elements of your life that tie you in unhealthy ways to people and things. Sometimes this transit correlates with disputes over money or assets. Positively, it’s a motivating time to take the lead or to take action in connection with shared finances, loans, or debts.
CancerMars heads into your partnership zone today, dear Cancer, where it will visit until February 13th. This influence enlivens your relationships with others, sometimes stimulating conflicts but also generating excitement, passion, and activity. It’s possible you rush into a new relationship or partnership, or an existing relationship is livelier and more action-oriented. Instead, someone is integral to stirring your desire for action. You can tackle problems fearlessly even those issues that have been brewing under the surface of things. At the very least, relationships are unlikely to be predictable or boring at this time. There can be friction between you and a significant other, which need not be difficult if handled well. Shared activities can be helpful for releasing excess energy. This energy can manifest as “push and pull” as you attempt to achieve equality and balance in your life.
LeoMars moves into your work and health sector today, dear Leo, where it will visit until February 13th. This transit can rev you up, boosting your energy and motivation to pursue your work, routines, and health pursuits. It can also arouse impatience at times, which means you’re better off setting your own pace when possible. You’ll be raring to go on various work projects, tasks, and daily routines, with life becoming a little more hectic. Being more detail-oriented, structured, and disciplined will benefit you greatly. You are more industrious, have increased energy for applying to your work or daily routines, and can feel quite motivated to pick up–or step up–a health and wellness program. The Moon spends today in harmony with your sign, helping boost your mood and optimism. You’re at your happiest today with a little bit of variety.
VirgoMars heads into your sector of play, entertainment, romance, and creativity today, dear Virgo, where it will visit until February 13th. It brings a competitive spirit to your creative pursuits, relationships, and leisure time. You are more enthusiastic and confident about your goals. You may be putting a more creative spin on your work and projects, but you could find dull work that much harder to do. It’s a time to pour more energy and initiative into actively pursuing a rewarding love life, social amusement or hobbies, and pleasure in general. You have a likable, competitive, more energetic, and pleasingly assertive temperament during this transit. Today, however, you’re more interested in slowing down to appreciate what you have. It’s more about building, rooting, and nesting than about innovation and excitement. You need a more predictable and secure pace, and you’re attracted to earthy, simple, and sensual activities and experiences.
LibraMars moves into your home and family sector today, where it will transit until February 13th, dear Libra. You’ll bring more energy and initiative to home-related projects or family activities during this cycle. This transit enlivens your personal or home life. It can be a self-protective time, but also a period in which you may be defending or especially active caring for loved ones. Home renovations are in focus in some cases, and family activities or increased activity in and around the home in others. While it’s not the ideal position for Mars, as you may feel blocked or limited when it comes to going after your desires or asserting yourself directly sometimes, it can be a good time to take charge of your domestic world. It’s a “cleaning house” influence that can work literally and figuratively. The Moon is in your sign all day–a time to learn about your needs and desires, as they become very clear to you now. However, it’s also important to exercise patience, knowing that you could experience emotional needs as far more pressing or urgent than they actually are.
ScorpioMars enters your solar third house and will continue to transit this sector of your chart until February 13th, dear Scorpio. This can be a busy, communicative time for you. The motivation to learn, connect, and pursue your mental interests is strong in the weeks ahead. However, impatience can be a problem now if you feel others aren’t keeping your quick pace. Mars acts to speed up your daily routine in a variety of ways. While impatience with others, argumentativeness, and competitiveness are potential negatives of this position, with awareness of these tendencies, it comes more naturally to manage them. In fact, it’s a strong period for mental resourcefulness and sharpness–a time to feed your need for mental stimulation. Increased energy and activity surround communications, transportation, siblings, your neighborhood, and learning. You are more spontaneous when speaking your mind and communicating in general. Watch for impatience with manual and mechanical tasks, and for pushing your ideas too hard. Today, however, you may need some downtime, extra time for arriving at decisions and conclusions, and more privacy. With the emotional Moon in the sector of your chart that works behind the scenes, you are less noticeable and more inclined to withdraw from the demands of everyday life.
SagittariusMars leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Sagittarius, where it will transit until February 13th. This influence stirs your desire to improve your lot in life. Fiery Mars has occupied your sign since November 24th, which brought considerable energy and drive to your life but also some impatience and pressure. With Mars now in your finances and values sector, the desire to bring abundance into your life tends to dominate. You may feel increasingly motivated to make money, but you are also capable of impulsive purchases during this period. You might seek more control over your things or focus on developing your skills and talents. Competitive feelings may be behind some of this drive to better your position. Today, however, cooperation brings the most rewards. You’re putting more of yourself, emotionally, into more humanitarian or happiness goals.
CapricornToday’s influences remind you of your priorities, dear Capricorn. You’re setting goals and attending to your practical affairs, which is empowering. Mars moves into your sign today after several weeks of sweeping through your privacy sector and stirring up all sorts of buried matter. This transit, lasting until February 13th, stirs your more dynamic side. You are incredibly passionate, desirous, and excitable. You can accomplish far more than usual if you focus your energy. One of the reasons you can be more effective now is that you are much clearer about what you want. Confidence builds upon self-control and direction–it’s a time to act rather than react. You are enthusiastic and tend to approach life head-on in the weeks ahead. You want to begin new projects and strike out on your own.
AquariusMars changes signs today, dear Aquarius, entering your solar twelfth house, where it will transit until February 13th. Over the coming weeks, you’ll be reassessing or reorganizing your goals and desires, perhaps questioning some things before you gain clarity. Some of you will require more rest than usual and more time to come to decisions. Your energy levels can be at a low, or they can fluctuate, during this cycle. In general, this is a time for recharging your energy stores! There can be some indecisiveness and changeable moods during this cycle. Avoid inclinations towards self-deception and tactics to get what you want, as these never truly satisfy. It’s a time of a slow but steady retreat. It’s a beautiful time to enjoy more privacy, handle problem areas, and wrap up certain matters. For now, you’re looking behind you in order to discover where you’re heading. There can be a lot of activity behind the scenes or in your private life now. Today, you’re more interested in experiencing life without worrying about the particulars.
PiscesWhile you’re inclined to keep some things to yourself today, dear Pisces, it’s a good time to connect with someone mentally. A fair and balanced give and take can occur that leaves both feeling stronger. Mars enters your solar eleventh house today, where it will transit until February 13th. This transit subtly lifts your hopes and stirs your need to network, work with a team, or collaborate. You are especially good at structuring and organizing projects and groups/group work during this cycle. Involvement with friends can be energizing at times and draining at other times if you don’t set limits. You’ll be putting more energy and effort into your social life or toward fulfilling happiness goals. You’re ready to make dreams happen and take care of the social side of your life. This can be a good time for innovative methods and plans.
