Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour appeal is strong today, dear Aries, and your desire to express and enjoy yourself runs high. However, Saturn stations and turns retrograde today, and responsibilities can hang heavy in the air as the shift occurs. A change in perspective is likely over the coming months while Saturn is retrograde (until October 23rd), particularly related to your friendships, networking, and long-term happiness goals. A review of career or life path goals might also be in store. It’s helpful to recognize that you have enough time to resolve problems and that efforts to build and restructure are beneficial for you in the long run. Increases or expansion may lead to stress rather than joy right now, so do your best to tone things down and bring order to what you have in place. Focusing on current projects can be rewarding. Consideration of what your friends or group associations mean to you is crucial now. This week, you may feel the weight of responsibilities quite heavily. However, as you adjust to this retrograde motion, you’ll see the benefits of structure in these areas of life.
TaurusWith shifts occurring now, things are up in the air, dear Taurus, and it’s best to feel things out before making final decisions or conclusions. Saturn begins its yearly retrograde cycle today, and until October 23rd, prompts you to do some sorting or reviewing of current goals and projects or endeavors. You’re likely to feel a shift in perspective about your long-term goals, responsibilities, career, or life path. There is a real need to simplify rather than expand or increase with your career or reputation, as development or expansion can bring about undue stress. However, you’re in excellent shape to review these issues, build upon current projects, or return to unfinished endeavors. As well, consider reviving old studies or streamlining your approach to learning.
GeminiToday’s transits are good for connecting, sharing, and bonding, dear Gemini. However, Saturn reaches its station as it turns retrograde, and you’re encouraged to slow down to consider your more extensive plans and goals. Saturn will remain in its yearly retrograde cycle, this time until October 23rd, and there can be a shift in your perspective on your responsibilities. Initially, it could feel heavy, and your responsibilities seem to weigh you down, but this feeling will subside. Plans or projects may stall, or you question your commitment to some of them, perhaps due to altered motivation levels or realistic assessments of the limits of time and energy. The months ahead are excellent for editing or building upon existing projects but less ideal for brand-new major or ambitious plans. It’s good to remember that simplifying, building, structuring, and stabilizing efforts produce the best results while Saturn is retrograde.
CancerSaturn’s station today encourages you to slow down and think about your priorities, dear Cancer. People are especially prone to errors of judgment now until they grow accustomed to the shift. Saturn will be retrograde until October 23rd, and it’s a reasonable period for review. While it can cast a heavy note to this week, and responsibilities can temporarily feel weightier, you’ll adjust to the shift and benefit from a review. Areas of life most affected by this shift in perspective are debts, support, emotional health, and close relationships. You might need to re-assess how much time and energy you can afford to invest in these matters, or you may be dealing with delays or refinements of plans. Once you begin to recognize the need for restructuring, simplifying, and stabilizing your life, you’ll have a stronger sense of the benefits of this retrograde cycle. Thinking about the long-term rather than short-term gains of your endeavors is helpful whenever Saturn is a strong influence.
LeoSaturn stations and turns retrograde today, dear Leo, and because you’re not used to this heavy energy, you could temporarily feel weighed down or disoriented. It’s best to take the time to think about your priorities, particularly related to partnerships and significant people in your life. Saturn will remain retrograde until October 23rd, and it’s an important cycle for changing your perspective about your responsibilities, reviewing, and editing existing endeavors or goals. The key to working with it to your advantage is to remind yourself of the work you need to do to stabilize critical areas of your life, especially your relationships, work, and health, aiming to connect with this purpose. Simplifying rather than taking on additional responsibilities makes the most sense in the months ahead. There is some pleasing, freeing energy available today, even with Saturn’s station. The Moon spends the day in your sign, helping to keep the mood light and spirits high.
VirgoSaturn stations and turns retrograde today, dear Virgo, and will move in this apparent backward motion until October 23rd. While this shift occurs, especially the day after Mercury’s station, watch for errors or blurred perceptions. Strained relationships or the weight of your work or health responsibilities can be heavier temporarily. However, the cycle itself simply points to a shifting perspective on your routines, work, health, or romantic and creative life. It’s a better period for review and reflection than innovation. While you may encounter some waning motivation or delays in any of these areas, you are in an excellent position to simplify, edit, and build what you already have in place. You might re-assess commitments to specific programs, projects, or jobs.
LibraSaturn stations and turns retrograde today, dear Libra, and it’s best to watch for errors as the shift occurs. However, the cycle itself, lasting until October 23rd, is a strong one for gaining perspective on commitments related to romance, family, and creativity. This retrograde period is suitable for reevaluating, consolidating, or rebuilding critical areas of your life. Once accustomed to the energy, you’ll find that things even out as you give extra consideration to the limits of time and energy. You might return to a previous project and approach it in a new way now, or you might build a work-in-progress. Brand-new major projects may not take off quickly and might only serve to stress you out, as this is a time for conserving energy and simplifying your life, generally speaking. Today’s Moon finds you tuning into your happiness goals and your need for extracurricular activities.
ScorpioSaturn stations and turns retrograde today, dear Scorpio, casting a somewhat serious tone to the day and perhaps the week. This yearly retrograde lasts several months, and this year, it runs until October 23rd. During these months, there can be opportunities to re-assess, edit, and refine your commitments. Home and family matters may involve delays or require some redoing. Thinking about the long-term will help you understand the importance of this period. Reconnecting to the meaning of your commitments or responsibilities is a process, and you’ll get there soon enough, especially if you take the time to examine your intentions and expectations. Aim to simplify and work on projects already underway so that you can catch your breath. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, reinforcing a responsible, goal-oriented frame of mind.
SagittariusThis can be a good day for interesting feedback and food for thought, dear Sagittarius. Still, Saturn begins its yearly retrograde period today and will remain retrograde until October 23rd. In the short term, this shift can lend some heavier or more responsible themes to the day. However, the cycle ahead of you is an opportunity period for reviewing and reassessing your projects and commitments. Saturn is transiting your sector of communications and transportation, and these areas of life are most affected by the retrograde. However, finances are always ruled by Saturn in your solar chart, and they can play a role as well. This can be a checkpoint moment for certain learning, personal interests, communications, financial, and socializing activities. There can certainly be delays related to these matters, or you might return to an unfinished project rather than take on a new one, which is likely to be the more successful strategy. Simplifying and structuring your life makes sense now. Find ways to reconnect with the purpose or meaning behind the things you’re doing, as this will help you get back on track sooner.
CapricornThere can be a pleasant feeling of support and nurturing today, dear Capricorn. Still, Saturn stations and turns retrograde today, encouraging you to slow down. There can be some heaviness with financial matters today and this week. For best results, aim to sort, organize, and take things a step at a time. Saturn is retrograde until October 23rd, and it’s a solid cycle for reviewing your commitments and responsibilities, mainly related to your finances, business, security, self-worth, natural talents, resources, and comfort levels. There may be delays related to some of these things or a temporary pulling back from specific projects until you come to new conclusions. These shouldn’t be rushed as your perspective shifts this week. In a general sense and mainly related to money matters, it’s a better period for review and reflection than innovation. Taking on new projects or expanding may stress you out more than help you.
AquariusToday’s energies can bring interesting people and ideas to your life, dear Aquarius. Still, there is some need to slow down and think about your responsibilities and duties with Saturn stationing and turning retrograde. Saturn’s retrograde cycle lasts until October 23rd, and it’s a period of review. Suppose you feel disconnected from the purpose of the responsibilities brought on by this Saturn transit to your sign. In that case, this retrograde can effectively magnify their heaviness or weight, even if they haven’t changed or increased. In other words, your perception of your responsibilities can alter. It’s best to keep in mind the overall purpose of this Saturn transit–you’re learning to rely on yourself and get your life in order. Moderation helps now. Returning to a previous project may be particularly rewarding and more likely to succeed than a brand-new one. It may be a time of reconsidering commitments or reviewing health and matters related to your personal manner or outlook and confidence levels.
PiscesIt may be best not to jump to conclusions or make quick decisions today, dear Pisces. Saturn stations and turns retrograde today, and it’s best to consider your responsibilities and work step by step towards your goals. Saturn is retrograde until October 23rd, and during this cycle, it’s a natural time for you to review your obligations and reconsider personal plans. Some level of withdrawal is possible now. You’re learning more deeply about your spiritual goals, tying up loose ends, or finishing long-term projects that have outworn their purpose. Saturn’s station can feel a little heavy as you sense that you’re switching gears, but as you adjust to this shift, this review period can be welcome. It’s not an ideal cycle for launches of major long-term projects, but returning to complete old projects can be rewarding.
