Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re likely to feel hopeful and optimistic feelings revolving around work matters and living conditions, dear Aries, even if you’re making changes that you hadn’t anticipated. The key is that you’re working with what you have and doing so resourcefully. Also today, Mars moves out of your sign and into your resources sector for a stay until August 20th. While having Mars in your sign has helped you understand your desires, you’re now a little more patient and focused on a general level. You can be especially excited about and motivated to take care of your valuables and money matters. During this cycle, you’re more security-minded, and it’s a fine time for getting yourself settled and working on self-esteem or security issues. You can be more confident about making money but could also be prone to impulsive buying! If you’ve been undervaluing yourself or your talents, then this is the time to make things right. Difficulties can arise during this period if you get the feeling that others are not respecting you or your things.
TaurusOrganizing and prioritizing come more readily as you get straight to the point and avoid beating around the bush today, dear Taurus. It feels good to be decisive. Mars has been quietly at work behind the scenes in your life, and today moves into your sign. It will be revving you up until August 20th. While you’ve been dealing with buried issues such as anger or emotional slush, circumstances were not conducive for releasing these things directly and straightforwardly. Mars moving into Taurus changes this, bringing fire, stamina, and dynamism to your personality and energy levels. This transit can be exciting and energizing, but it can leave you feeling tense if you don’t find the right outlets for expressing yourself. It’s a good idea to watch for oversized tempers. Otherwise, it’s a fabulous time to take the initiative. When you channel your energy wisely during this transit, you are highly dynamic and creative. You’re in good form if you listen to gut instincts rather than merely react to life. Use this period to tap into your natural bravery and shape your life.
GeminiMars begins its journey through your privacy and soul sector today, dear Gemini, where it will transit until August 20th. It’s a strong cycle for researching and reflecting upon your goals. If some plans or projects need to end, the weeks ahead are good for putting them to rest. You are channeling more energy into private matters during this period. The need for rest and recuperation is in the spotlight. However, many things are very much undercover at the moment. Of course, life goes on as usual, but you may need to carve out extra space and time for a retreat of sorts. There’s much to do behind the scenes! You might reevaluate current plans or incubate new ones rather than go full-speed ahead with new ventures. You might decide to pour extra energy into healing activities or use this time to finish up a major project. Today’s transits are good for gaining new information through study and observation.
CancerMars begins its transit of your solar eleventh house today, dear Cancer, where it will stay until August 20th, and Mercury enters your sign for a shorter stay (until July 19th). These transits bring smoother energy for pursuing your desires and goals. You’re more willing to organize projects or manage others. You might also enjoy stronger courage to chase your dreams or more energy to channel into networking, activities with friends, causes, or group efforts. On the other hand, if there have been problems brewing with a friend or group, this transit can bring things out into the open. Mars is about facing issues and getting over them so you can move forward. Today, you’re resilient and mentally sharp.
LeoMars moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Leo, where it will stay until August 20th. After more focus on extra-curricular interests, you can feel a compelling desire to take action, fulfill your responsibilities, or push your professional interests ahead. You’re enthusiastic about taking care of business during this cycle. While exciting for life path goals, you can sometimes feel that you’re in the hot seat with Mars challenging your sign during this transit. You prefer a more straightforward approach to life than what’s on offer during this period, but you can work with this energy and use it to your advantage. Your natural enthusiasm can sell a good idea or plan, and you’re naturally taking charge and the lead. You might find it easier to get jobs done without waste. Matters related to your life path goals, career, or reputation are changing, or your feelings about your goals are going in new directions. You may have a harder time dealing with authority as you prefer to work independently at your own pace. Today, you’re enthusiastic, but watch that you don’t take on too much, forgetting that energy levels can eventually even out and you may be left with too much on your plate.
VirgoMars has recently been undercover in your solar chart, dear Virgo, but today, it heads into your spirit sector and will continue to harmonize with your sign until August 20th. This transit fires up your desire to connect more fully to a higher purpose. You may not have seen direct routes to your desires recently, and now, obstacles fall away or seem easier to clear. You’re more courageous about expressing your ideas or opinions in the weeks ahead. This period might also be the start of an exciting new passion or interest. Smoother, easier energy is with you, and your approach to the world is a little more outgoing and spirited. It’s an excellent influence on competitive activities, and you might gently challenge yourself to improve. It’s a great time to seek new experiences that enhance your sense of well-being or engagement with the world around you. Today, problem-solving and a more active role with a friend or group can figure strongly. The desire to talk, share your experiences, and open up is strong.
LibraMars moves into your intimacy and sharing sector, dear Libra, where it will stay until August 20th. Mars has been opposing your sign in recent weeks, often challenging you, frequently through others! Your intimate life is now likely to heat up. You may prefer a subtle approach to getting what you want during this transit. Watch for arguments with a partner over money and power when Mars is under strain in this sector. Otherwise, it’s a powerful influence for connecting with and exploring your hidden desires. You seek more satisfying and absorbing endeavors. There can be more intensity within you or in a close relationship. Much is going on behind the scenes! Today, you can experience some cravings, but before going gung-ho about something, try to consider whether it will genuinely benefit you.
ScorpioMars moves into your partnership sector today, dear Scorpio, stimulating much activity in the relationship department until August 20th. Work pressures and health complaints tend to ease. While exciting for close relationships, you can sometimes feel you’re in the hot seat with Mars opposing your sign during this transit. It’s a revealing and stimulating period but does require some mindfulness and self-awareness since there can be a strong inclination to project traits onto others. Relationships that have been too restrictive, tense, or dull need attention now. Someone could encourage you to identify and pursue your desires. Energy levels or activity increase in a relationship as things move quickly and life is lively or dotted with conflict. Today’s transits stir up productive mental energy.
SagittariusMars heads into your work and health sector, where it will transit until August 20th, dear Sagittarius. You have more energy for work, fitness, and daily routines, or your workload is larger than usual. You could be interested in picking up or stepping up a health program. Mars fires up your desire to excel with your work, chores, routines, and health pursuits –you want to do things quickly, or you want to pack more things into a shorter period. There could be difficulties working with others if tension has been brewing, but you can do your part by actively channeling the excess energy into projects that move your life forward. Today, plans can be exciting to draw up.
CapricornMars moves into a supportive angle to your sign today, dear Capricorn, and plays in your favor. This transit heats up your desires and animates your romantic life or creative world until August 20th. You’re confident and assertive, and even more attractive than usual. Relationships are passionate now. You’re alert, ready to make changes, and willing to put yourself out there–a winning combination. You pour more energy into play and pleasure. Potential pitfalls with Mars are impatience and insensitivity, which you should aim to control for the best results. Today, watch for jumping to conclusions. While it’s a good day for dreaming up new plans, give it time before putting anything into motion. Relationships can be exciting but perhaps moody, as desires are big.
AquariusMars enters your home and family sector today, dear Aquarius, bringing animation to your personal world and domestic circle until August 20th. Positively, you have more energy at your disposal for projects on or around the home. This extra energy undirected (or misdirected) can produce tension with family and within. However, it’s a time to dig up buried problems and get them out in the open. Ultimately, it’s a helpful process. It’s an excellent cycle for pushing a family or home-related matter forward. Still, it requires some adjustments to your approach to pursuing your desires in other areas of life. Aim to take a hard look at how you’re expressing (or bottling) anger. Increased self-awareness can lead to solutions and improvements. Today, you might enjoy organizing and find it easier to get through things quickly and efficiently with your current enthusiasm.
PiscesMars moves into your communications sector today, dear Pisces, and will transit this part of your chart until August 20th. Mercury also moves into harmony with your sign–another supportive influence. You’re more inclined to express yourself with vigor and throw yourself into learning and personal interests with more passion in the period ahead. Stepping up the pace are communications, transportation, and connecting. Watch for impatience with words and actions, especially while performing manual tasks, but enjoy this take-charge, courageous transit. You’re ahead of the pack with your ideas during this period, and it’s time to assert yourself more directly. Today, try not to push or force projects, communications, and personal interests. You may be better off if you let ideas unfold naturally.
