Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesJupiter’s retrograde begins today and will continue until October 18th, dear Aries, encouraging you to reassess specific goals and projects that have taken up too much of your time and energy. If you’ve been a little too withdrawn for your own good or if you’ve been so busy taking care of others that you’ve ignored your own needs, then this is a time for taking steps to balance the scales. There can be distinct benefits to returning to old projects, ventures, and investments, while brand new ones may be slow to get started. Once you adjust to the energy, you’ll recognize this period as strong for understanding what truly motivates and enthuses you. Favored now are matters related to family, home, relationships, pleasure, and money. It’s a good time to spend with people you love. Forgiveness or getting beyond problem areas in relationships comes more readily than usual today, and it’s healing.
TaurusJupiter begins its four-month retrograde period today, dear Taurus, and this cycle will extend until October 18th. It’s a natural time of the year to slow down just a little. If you have too many ideas or projects on your plate, for example, you might begin to pace yourself. Reconnecting with old friends and dreams or plans can be highly beneficial. There can also be the need to slow down or moderate shared finances or debts. Recognize that there is a time for pushing things forward and for riding the wash, observing, and reflecting. This retrograde Jupiter cycle favors the latter. Today, you’re in great shape in your communications and on a social level. Connections and conversations inspire trust. You’re appealing to many people, and you’re bringing out the best in others. You may be feeling emotionally and soulfully connected to people now, mainly friends.
GeminiWith Jupiter beginning its four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Gemini, it’s wise to pace yourself or tone down areas where you’ve been overdoing. The retrograde cycle favors editing and refining current projects and finding rewards in old ventures. Some de-emphasis of ambitious plans gives you the chance to pay more attention to your personal life until October 18th. It’s a better time for reaping the rewards of recent successes and focusing your energy on those projects already in progress rather than taking on new ventures. Today, it’s easier than usual for you to connect with your wants and needs. There can be almost magical discoveries and conclusions now, and possibly some good finds and deals for things that truly improve your life.
CancerJupiter begins its yearly four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Cancer. You might experience some initial and natural waning of enthusiasm if you’ve been overdoing specific pursuits. Still, this effect occurs until you adjust to this inward-turning Jupiter energy. Once you do, you’ll recognize this period as vital for understanding what truly motivates and enthuses you. Some of the faith you’ve been nurturing may seem to drop away, but only just enough for you to see your plans in a different, more realistic light. You might choose to return to old studies, work, health programs, and projects, which can benefit you. Certainly, it’s better to pace yourself now. Today, transits help boost your charm and improve the chances that your dreams will come true. Your idealism and romantic nature are in the spotlight, and you’re likely to find it natural to dream of beautiful things, experiences, and situations.
LeoJupiter turns retrograde today, and for four months, this cycle tends to redirect some of your energies away from a partnership or a strong focus on others, dear Leo. Or, there may be the need to slow down or moderate shared finances or debts. If you’ve been overspending or over-borrowing, or otherwise too dependent on others for your happiness, then this is a time for bringing things back into balance. Some de-emphasis of the pursuit of pleasures and entertainment can also be practical now. Recognize that there is a time for pushing things forward and for riding the wash. Until October 18th, it’s the latter. Returning to old projects can be successful. Today brings powerful energy for coming to terms with something from the past, particularly related to a relationship. You may arrive at new insight or understanding, and you tend to see things in a more sympathetic light than usual.
VirgoJupiter begins its yearly, four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Virgo. This cycle affects your partnerships, negotiations, and later, work and health matters. In these areas, you may be looking back before moving forward until October 18th. It’s a period for taking a more realistic look at current projects and developing what’s already in progress rather than expanding or taking on more. If you’ve been going hard with supporting others and now need some independence, consider gentle ways of getting to the right balance. You might return to old connections, work projects, or health programs, or you could be working on building and improving current ones with much success. Today’s transits tend to boost you up emotionally or socially. You tend to see people and your feelings in a good light. Ideally, you’re not glossing over others’ flaws, but seeing the flaws and finding beauty in them.
LibraJupiter begins its yearly, four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Libra. This turnaround occurs in your work and health sector, but later, Jupiter will return to your sector of creativity and romance. Your enthusiasm for these matters continues, but you may begin to see areas of excess that require toning down and adjusting. This cycle helps you pace yourself and gain perspective. While it can be discouraging at first, it enables you to practice some moderation. Editing work, review, and research are in favor. It’s better not to expand or take on more. Instead, aim to focus on what you’ve already begun, which can be more successful during this period. Today, people tend to be thinking highly of you or wondering about you, and you are quietly taking the lead.
ScorpioJupiter begins its yearly, four-month retrograde today, dear Scorpio, and it has the effect of moderating your life in key ways. It’s especially relevant if you’ve expanded something too big or paid too much attention to romance, emotional drama, or solo creative projects to the detriment of other life departments. Some detachment can be healthy, and some de-emphasis of the pursuit of pleasures and entertainment can be practical now. Besides, it can be a good time for finding something lost or reviving old projects or hobbies. There are times to expand and times to pace yourself, and the latter is likely to apply during this cycle that lasts until October 18th. You might reassess some of your projects or work on developing existing projects rather than take on new ones. Today, you have special energy working in your favor. Transits enhance your appeal, support relationship matters, and improve your ability to express yourself creatively. Others tend to receive you especially well.
SagittariusJupiter begins its yearly, four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Sagittarius, and it’s a natural time to slow down and pace yourself. This period is excellent for balancing out recent excess or extravagance, although it may feel slightly deflating at first. Treat delays as opportunities to make necessary tweaks. Rather than taking on more projects or expanding, it makes more sense to attend to those already on the go, particularly related to studies, home life, and family. Despite the possible disorientation of the shift itself today, transits now improve your coping skills and understanding. You appreciate the cooperative and open-minded atmosphere around you. There can be a pleasing focus on the past, feelings, and inner needs and wants.
CapricornJupiter turns retrograde today for a cycle lasting four months, dear Capricorn. While there continues to be good energy for learning, studies, communications, money matters, and transportation in your life, during the retrograde, there can be some de-emphasis, review, or toning down in these areas. It’s not only appropriate, but it’s also beneficial. You might decide it’s wiser to avoid taking on new interests and projects. Instead, it makes sense to focus on enjoying and developing what you already have going. Today, people see you in a very favorable light, making it a good day for expressing your feelings and sharing your ideas. There is an extra touch of magic in your interactions today, and discussing your dreams can be part of this.
AquariusJupiter begins its yearly retrograde cycle today, dear Aquarius. This period, lasting until October 18th, is suitable for reassessing some of your projects. Or, you might pace yourself by developing existing projects rather than take on new ones. There can be some waning enthusiasm or de-emphasis of business, spending, and money matters, in general. However, as you adjust to the retrograde period, you’ll recognize that this is a vital time for balancing things out and judging how much time and energy you require for your projects or plans. It’s a natural time of the year for some introspection, slowing down, and review. Reconnecting with old friends and dreams can be highly beneficial. Today, your sixth sense can lead you to a useful method or technique for your work, a new business or money-making idea, or a creative approach to a health problem. A sense of inner joy and peace can be with you as you find more meaning in what you’re doing.
PiscesJupiter begins its yearly, four-month-long retrograde period today, dear Pisces. While Jupiter will continue to transit your sign and stimulate enthusiasm and optimism, some of this is now turning inward. It’s a good time to tame excess and overreaching–essentially, pace yourself! If you’ve overdone seeking freedom, for example, this is the time to make adjustments that bring you a little closer to earth. Returning to or relaunching past endeavors can be particularly beneficial, and certainly, cutting back on taking on new extracurricular projects is a good idea. Some de-emphasis on ambitious plans gives you the chance to pay more attention to your personal life. Today, you’re in great shape for personal charm, romance, imagination, and creativity. It’s a time for fully recognizing inner and spiritual values. Boundaries between you and others tend to soften, and bonds can strengthen.
