Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou might enjoy thinking up new plans or procedures today, dear Aries, especially those that make life easier and more progressive, in and around the home or with your business. Different and inspired methods to approach your business, family life, money, or regular routines can be successful and a whole lot of fun today. You might want to allow yourself some freeform activities that encourage thinking outside the box. As the day advances, Mercury and Neptune head toward a square aspect, and problem-solving can become more complicated. It’s not easy to arrive at clear-cut decisions or conclusions with this transit active, and it’s probably best to avoid pushing for them. You’ll feel it if you’ve denied yourself necessary rest, downtime, or spiritual sustenance in recent weeks.
TaurusYou can find inspiration today, dear Taurus, with something — or someone — stirring your higher ideals and awakening your dreams. The day is potentially excellent for interactions with a sibling or acquaintance, news that helps you, and generally a feeling of moving forward, if not a breakthrough of sorts. Uranus, currently transiting your sign, harmonizes with the Sun in your communications sector, and you can delight in some inspiring ideas and a sense of progress. Gaining surprise freedoms or discovering new ways of doing things that liberate you in some manner can figure strongly now. Later today, energies make it challenging to see things clearly. Financial matters may need attention, and it makes sense to avoid lending or borrowing just for now.
GeminiToday’s transits are strong for fantastic new ideas or methods, particularly on an emotional level, dear Gemini, with the Sun and Uranus harmonizing in the background of your solar chart. You can benefit from exploration and non-routine activities today, and there may be a breakthrough of sorts that inspires you. Old problems or the past can figure strongly, and a bit of luck or coincidence may be prominent. Even so, there is a sense that you’re moving forward, and there is good energy with you for taking you in that direction. Mercury heads toward a square to Neptune as the day advances, and uncertainties can play with your perceptions or mood. It may be best not to act on ventures and ideas for now since it isn’t easy to be objective under this transit. Aim to allow time to tell the truth of a matter.
CancerWith the Sun currently transiting your sign, you’re more noticeable, dear Cancer, and you can feel more in charge of your destiny. Today, the Sun harmonizes with Uranus, and you have a little more courage to express yourself or break free from stereotypes and routines, and it feels great. You could find yourself on the same page as a friend, or feel strongly about a group endeavor and teamwork. Today is active for positivity and hopefulness as well as enjoying friends or networks and different, unusual ideas. Later today, Mercury and Neptune head into conflict, and you might turn a blind eye to a matter that you’d prefer to avoid. Misunderstandings can abound.
LeoYou might enjoy sudden inspiration and intuition that boosts your career, reputation, or long-term goals, dear Leo. There can be breakthrough actions occurring now. Today is good for feeling positive and opening up your mind to new approaches that can be truly valuable. There can be workarounds to problems that save you time or lead to other developments. Something awakens a new perspective on life. It’s best to put ego issues aside since something larger or more important needs consideration today. Later today, it’s not easy to see your emotional attachments, relationships, or finances clearly. You might want to keep careful watch with your money.
VirgoYou’re in touch with your unique qualities and talents more than usual today, dear Virgo. Transits today encourage your inner inventor. You have emotional fuel for enjoying and pursuing your interests, and you’re likely to want to try new things, branch out, improvise, and experiment. You are especially attracted to unique, different, or out-of-the-ordinary topics, activities, ideas, and people. If called upon for advice, you make an excellent guide with your progressive ideas and an exceptionally balanced, humanitarian perspective. Today is not ideal for following routines–changes are necessary to free yourself from restrictive situations. Today can be liberating in some way. There may be some level of chaos or confusion later today, however. Aim to be vigilant if putting your faith in someone or something, or aim to reserve judgment on a matter until more information surfaces.
LibraThere can be great moments of inspiration and a sense of progress today, dear Libra. A nice change in your usual routine can pull up the need to improvise, which can be fun or lead to exciting detours. Today’s Sun-Uranus harmonious aspect can point the way to channels for expressing yourself. Innovative methods for doing business or advancing your goals can pop up now. You seem to have the support of higher-ups, or there can be a boost to your reputation. It can be a chaotic day for big decisions, but it’s otherwise strong for feel-good moments. Later today, Mercury approaches a square to Neptune, which can play with your perceptions. Consider that discontent may have its root in needs for more fulfilling, creative, or imaginative work.
ScorpioWorkarounds or life hacks can be inventive now with the Sun and Uranus in harmony, dear Scorpio. Buckling down in one area can release you in another. You might see an opportunity you missed in the past, especially related to a relationship. It’s best to free your mind to enjoy this energy, so slight deviations to plans may result in exciting detours. Today’s transits are favorable for personal appeal and friendships, as well as new things to learn or engage your mind. Your willingness to do something on the spur of the moment can be key–be ready to open up your schedule today. As the day advances, Mercury moves toward a square to Neptune, and there can be a sense that things are up in the air, especially regarding money, support, and relationships, leaving you in a state of limbo. However, you might instead consider it a convenient time for a pause that refreshes.
SagittariusYou might discover a new method or idea for making life a little easier today, dear Sagittarius, with the Sun in harmony with Uranus. Focus on the positive, as you may very well uncover a new interest, product, or activity that excites you. You’re encouraged to think outside of the box and learn new things, and you may feel a strong desire to express yourself in new and different ways. Discoveries can be breakthrough. As the day advances, Mercury heads toward a square with Neptune, pointing to a lack of clarity or some mixed signals. It’s possible that some diffusion is what you need, making it best to avoid pushing for answers.
CapricornPersonal attraction increases today, dear Capricorn. There is a spirit of freedom and acceptance in love and friendship, and a sense that you can be yourself rounds out your mood. Your inhibitions drop enough to enjoy yourself more fully, making it easier to express yourself creatively and spontaneously. You enjoy bringing something a little unusual or unconventional to your work or tasks. It’s a time to let go of what you don’t need so that you can connect more directly with your inner power. Later today, it’s better not to expect concrete results with Mercury approaching a square to Neptune. You could feel a little drained, and your mind can drift.
AquariusThe Sun in your solar sixth house tends to encourage your need for routine, better health, and more order in your life, dear Aquarius. Today, its connection to your inventive ruler, Uranus, helps you find new ideas, technology, methods, and approaches to these things. It can be a time for a sweet release from recent stresses or concerns through your domestic or work activities or through a better approach to healing yourself or your wellness. Favored most are activities that play to your sense of invention and progress or that support growth. You want to renovate, update, or innovate somehow, and it’s a good time to breathe new life into your projects or routines. You might reorganize in unique, helpful ways. With this transit, you could find yourself on the same page with someone important to you. Later today, Mercury heads to a square to Neptune, and it’s not easy to focus or concentrate. It may be that you need to take a break from overthinking. Watch for a tendency to borrow from the future to satisfy a temporary desire. Otherwise, take a pause and reconsider or reimagine your plans.
PiscesTransits today help open you up and improve flexibility, dear Pisces. A Sun-Uranus influence makes it easier to detach from a situation just enough to get perspective or to enjoy yourself more fully. There can be fun developments or progress related to creative play and expression. Siblings, acquaintances, and love interests can be supportive or appreciative, perhaps bringing pleasant surprises into your life. Your unique views or advice can be in the spotlight. Others notice you and reinforce you, and possibly encourage you to open up. Adopting a progressive, inventive approach seems to gain the most rewards today. The tempo of your life accelerates enough for you to dismiss some of your recent problems and frustrations. As the day advances, Mercury and Neptune head toward a square aspect, and you can feel temporarily drained, perhaps in need of some mental refreshment. It’s best to accept that clarity isn’t available temporarily but will return in due time.
