Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Mars-Uranus square can aggravate any uncertainties or frustrations you may be having with income, business, or a money situation, dear Aries. The need to break out of a rut can become evident through the day’s events, although it’s better if you do this mindfully. For best results, explore your feelings and decide what needs changing, aiming to put these into action on a less emotionally chaotic day. For best results, be ready to take steps to improve a situation rather than jump to react. It may be better to avoid risk-taking with your money or making quick decisions in love. You are not in the mood to feel tied down today, but be mindful when freeing yourself of something tying you back. Take this opportunity to see your practical matters from a new perspective, and it may lead you to new opportunities.
TaurusMars forms a square to Uranus, currently transiting your sign, dear Taurus, and your more impulsive or rebellious traits can surface. Something on the domestic front might work you up or displace you. Energy is up and down, but when up, you can harness it to do something wonderfully creative or productive. You need a change of pace! This is true in a general sense with Uranus in your sign for the long haul. Now with Mars involved, you could be tempted to jump in or out of something too quickly. Aim to be the one in charge of these changes instead of resisting and allowing change to happen to you. If you’re going to rock the boat today, aim to know precisely what you want and what you value since quick reactions may get you into hot water. Fortunately, you can turn this into an opportunity for renewal, and you might choose to seek it by doing something unusual or different. The Moon enters your sign today, and you can feel a sudden need to do something new and different.
GeminiWith a Mars-Uranus square today, dear Gemini, shortcuts can be a temptation, particularly with your work or chores. Instead of saving time, they’re more likely to cost you some. You could be battling some restlessness or discomfort with a past problem re-emerging. You might feel caged in, limited, or restricted by others right now, but it’s also a good time for learning more about yourself, which is ultimately empowering. Avoid letting impatience rule. Center yourself and examine issues that have made you angry and are unresolved, as these may be at the heart of stressed or impatient behavior today. Part of you may be striving to break free from the “old you” or an outdated identity, leading to rebellious behavior. For best results, be ready to make the most of a situation and willing to take steps to improve your life.
CancerA square between Mars and Uranus tends to rile you up today, dear Cancer, stirring some restlessness. Impatience can lead to impulsiveness today, especially with money, but it can also get you worked up about a difference in values with someone. There’s some tendency to fly off the handle if you don’t feel respected. Holding on too tightly to your things and ideas can be about a fear of changes taking place in your social life. Centering yourself can help, although it can be challenging to accomplish temporarily. You’ve been seeking more intensity in your experiences these days. Still, the part of you that needs some emotional detachment and distance can emerge now, possibly in disruptive ways if you’re not entirely aware of the reason for rebellious feelings. Consider ways to preserve your independence in some manner while also exploring deeper feelings or commitment.
LeoWith a Mars-Uranus square dominating today, dear Leo, exciting and perhaps disruptive energy is with you. Disagreements or changing perspectives can figure strongly, possibly pushing you into new territory. It’s possible there can be significant happenings with competitors or partners that prompt new approaches to what you do and how you see yourself. Through conflict or chaos, even if it’s taking place inside you, you may be able to find a way to put limitations behind you so that a door opens for change. Still, watch for being in reaction mode, which is more likely if someone is trying to tell you what to do. You may very well feel the tension rising. It’s probably better to keep your head rather than act impulsively. The need to make a change is evident, but you may not know exactly where to start. Take your time with these things. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, and spending some time attending to your career or broader goals makes sense today and tomorrow.
VirgoWork or daily affairs can be unusually intense today, dear Virgo. If there are tensions surrounding working under a schedule or in a limiting, oppressive environment, then you can feel this acutely now. With Mars and Uranus forming a square, try not to blow a fuse today! Outlets for expressing your frustration may appear limited. Differences of opinion can seem like blocks, but you’ll be much better off if you find ways to work through frustration before making a stand. Aim to get to the heart of your impatience today for best results. Your need for change is real, but you’d be wise to make changes mindfully. If you can manage to center yourself, you might get the opportunity to release a burden. The Moon moves into your sector of spirit and adventure, setting your sights high.
LibraToday’s Mars-Uranus square tends to shake things up, particularly in your interactions, dear Libra. Matters of give-and-take can be in focus, and tensions rise. There can be abruptness to the energy of the day, and you may very well need to put something behind you. It may be best to avoid quick reactions, but be determined to focus on improvement and moving on. As excited as you may be about a creative project or exploring a romance or personal interest these days, you need a break from pushing too hard, and circumstances occurring now may force the issue! If you’ve been caged in, even if it’s of your own making, you’ll feel it strongly now, and change becomes necessary. Resisting change can lead to more complicated problems, and so can rebellious actions, so be sure to reflect and make logical decisions.
ScorpioSurprises can be in store today with Mars and Uranus at odds, dear Scorpio. Unresolved tension may seem to build or get to a boiling point, and it’s best if you can find a creative or physical outlet for releasing it. It’s tough to take personal restrictions today, or a relationship can seem to be draining you of energy. Your ambitions are more intense these days, but unreliability or relationship problems can distract you from pursuing them right now. The root of today’s conflicts can be about equality or meeting others halfway. The day can lead to a pressing need to release yourself from something or someone that’s hijacked your attention and energy. Take this opportunity to plan for improvements in other areas of your life, rather than focusing obsessively on one aspect, and it will be fruitful.
SagittariusThe temptation to break out of monotony or other lifeless aspects of a job is intense today, dear Sagittarius. Your working life can bring some surprises, and you’ll need a little time to adjust to the changes in routine. There can be a lot to do right now, but patience is difficult to come by with Mars and Uranus forming a square aspect. It can be tempting to take shortcuts that could end up costing you later. Seek to identify what needs to change and proactively start your work on making improvements. If you can center yourself, you may arrive at the right path to take that will help you resolve problems and move forward. The Moon moves into your sector of work and health, where it will stay for over two days, stimulating your desire to get organized.
CapricornWith a Mars-Uranus square today, dear Capricorn, you may find yourself at cross-purposes with someone over values or sharing. Or, you could be dealing with erratic elements in your life and surprising events in your relationships. On the other hand, emotional restlessness can tempt you to take unnecessary risks. Mars may be pushing you to dig deep and seek hidden truths or a stronger connection to someone or something these days, but its square to Uranus can stir up all sorts of frustrations. Haste truly makes waste today, so aim to take it easy. Listen to your heart rather than to others who may not be expressing themselves very well or acting from the heart. Centering yourself can bring rewards. In other news, the Moon moves into your sector of joy and pleasure today — a generally feel-good transit that lasts over two days.
AquariusRestless energy is with you today as Mars and Uranus form a square, dear Aquarius, and you can experience a strong desire to break free from restrictive circumstances. It may be best to give everyone the space they need so that moods settle. If you can manage to center yourself, you’ll enjoy opportunities to resolve a relationship matter that may have been causing you some recent stress. Releasing pent-up worries or frustrations can be satisfying, and the more constructive the channel you can find, the better. However, you’re likely to deal with disruptions and distractions in the process. Impatience is unlikely to help your decisions, and it makes sense to recognize urges that are sudden and could lead to impulsiveness. Crankiness today, whether it’s yours or someone else’s, is likely to do with a need to break out of current labels. You need to grow and change, and recognizing this puts you in an advantageous position.
PiscesA Mars-Uranus square today can lead to hasty moves and the taking shortcuts, dear Pisces, particularly with work, paperwork, communications, and transportation. However, impatient speech and actions can be regrettable now if they’re not coming from the heart. Underneath it all, you may only be trying to break free from a label or restrictive situation, and if so, try to do this mindfully. Watch for jumping too quickly to conclusions or actions. It’s a good idea to avoid pushing something today and perhaps work at an independent pace since it’s all too easy to clash with others over methods.
