Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesComplicated feelings can easily bubble up to the surface today, dear Aries, with a Sun-Mars-Saturn configuration. Up and down energy levels can plague you now. Anger or resentment that you may have buried or brushed to the side tend to emerge, and while you should deal with them, don’t allow these feelings to set you back. Dealing with sudden desires is not about rushing to satisfy them, but rather identifying their source. Mars is currently transiting an area of your chart that rules all that’s hidden, under the surface, or left behind, and it has a tendency to stir up leftover anger or resentment that you may have buried or brushed to the side in recent times. Today’s aspects tend to stir the pot. Patience is necessary, as pushing may only serve to increase resistance. Your actions in the real world may not seem as effective, or they could go unnoticed, but self-knowledge helps you and prepares you for the next stage. Tap into your inner courage and find your passion, then think about ways to express it all. Drawing upon your creative power and using it to make important changes may come more easily later today.
TaurusToday’s Sun-Mars square can highlight tensions and unfulfilled desires, dear Taurus. You might feel that others are meddling too much in your affairs, or focusing on practical matters can be challenging. It may be best to avoid pushing something that you can’t change and open up to the possibility of last-minute changes. There is some tendency to butt heads over issues that have been frustrating you. You can be feeling defensive with others or especially anxious to move a project forward, but it isn’t easy to find the support you need as fast as you may want it today. Ideally, some competitiveness stimulates you to do your best or to take care of business. Pacing yourself is hard to do with transits creating a sense of urgency today, but it’s important. Blocks or obstacles seem to slow you down, but they can be a blessing in disguise–slowing down may be exactly what you need to do right now.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Mars square is challenging on its own, dear Gemini, but is aggravated by tense aspects to Saturn. This combination tends to produce a feeling of urgency to fill your desires, but the more you push, the more you meet with resistance. Petty disagreements can very easily escalate into full-blown arguments or stand-offs today. You might easily become offended if others are not recognizing your competence or needs. Rushing and impatience tend to exacerbate or create problems now. You may feel that you need to fight to get your needs met or to be heard. Taking the high road is the most satisfying now, even if it’s not immediately obvious. As much as you want to do it all right now, it’s important to pace yourself. Later today, it’s easier to focus on the positives in your life on a mental level as Mercury heads into a harmonious aspect with Ceres.
CancerTension can arise today if you have too much on your plate or if you give in to the temptation to rush things, dear Cancer. A Sun-Mars aspect creates an atmosphere of urgency, but blocks are likely if you try to push something forward. This transit works behind the scenes in your chart, obscuring the real source of your discontent. You might be overconfident and take on more challenges than you can reasonably meet. Try to tackle things one at a time rather than wear yourself out, and avoid overexertion or stretching yourself too thin. Simple debates can quickly escalate into full-on arguments, and impatience can lead to further problems. Your appetite for pleasure or instant gratification is big today, but the results will not satisfy you in the long term. However, if you can channel excess energy into a constructive project, a work-out, or a brisk walk, you might get a chance to learn a little more about desires that seem to emerge out of nowhere. You might end up enjoying a detour from your usual routine.
LeoToday’s energies tend to rile you up, dear Leo, as the Sun and Mars form a square. It’s best to try to direct this into positive channels, as you are quite hungry for emotional stimulation. However, it’s also a good idea to observe what’s bringing you to the point of frustration. Disagreements tend to be due to underlying competitiveness now. Boundaries and commitments can be issues. If you’re getting ahead of yourself, you’ll be reminded of time constraints this morning. It’s not an ideal time for financial planning or solid decision-making since the tendency is to jump into or out of something without thinking. It’s a good idea to watch for impatience and hot-headedness, and aim to learn about yourself and your needs. It can also be a time for intimate excitement and perhaps some positive movement in your financial affairs as the day advances.
VirgoToday’s energies tend to pull up tensions, dear Virgo. Mars in your partnership sector forms tense aspects with Saturn and the Sun today, pointing to possible blocks or conflicting desires that slow you down or set you back. Finding a balance between responsibilities and desires can help smooth things over, but it can be challenging to get there. Relationships are dynamic and stimulating, but temperamental. Others may be vying for your attention right now, and it can be disruptive. A good strategy for today’s frustrations would be to channel excess energy into something productive and worth your attention. You need creative outlets! You can feel quite stimulated and motivated if you set aside impatience or anger. An empowering conversation or exchange of ideas may be part of the picture later today.
LibraEnergy for work or daily routines can be especially dynamic today, dear Libra, and you might use it constructively by directing your attention to your special projects or health endeavors. You seem to have energy to spare. However, if you don’t take on an active role today, the energies of the day can too easily turn around on you, and you might find that you are impatient with others, or that people grate on your nerves. You could also be missing important steps or pushing yourself unnecessarily. Try not to rush things. While you’re busy trying to see the big picture, interruptions and annoying details frequently surface today. Today’s Sun-Mars square can also generate restlessness as you have a strong desire to expand your horizons and a compelling need to attend to your routines. You can’t do it all, so aim to pace yourself.
ScorpioTensions can be highly stimulating, but they can ramp up quickly today with a Sun-Mars square in play, dear Scorpio. Assertive and direct is one thing, but impatience can lead to abruptness with this transit. Restlessness can lead you to seek some instant gratification, and it’s a good idea to identify the root cause of your dissatisfaction instead of giving in to a random or sudden desire. Your love life or affections can be exciting but tumultuous, and perhaps a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Your judgment could be temporarily impaired, especially regarding financial and love matters, even though you could be feeling quite confident about these things. Avoid taking a risk, particularly with money. Let things calm down before making important conclusions or decisions. It’s best not to try to go forward too quickly. Creative projects might benefit from the passion of the day, or you might discover interesting ways to add a little spice to a relationship or friendship.
SagittariusPassions run high today, but there can be blocks to navigate, dear Sagittarius. You may be dealing with some frustration, particularly involving close relationships with a Sun-Mars square ramping up tensions and calling attention to problem areas. Sudden urges and desires may be a reflection of inner unrest, and it may be best to take more time to arrive at conclusions. You might feel caught in the middle of a no-win situation or argument. A partner or family member may be seeing things entirely differently than you are. Emotional ups and downs can be on the extreme side today. Even so, some competitiveness can be stimulating and might lead to very positive change and improvement. Excess energies might be channeled productively rather than wasted on bickering or impatience. There can be some frustration with a project that isn’t moving fast enough for you, but later today, conversations can be uplifting. A way out or through may become clear.
CapricornWatch for impatient communications and moves today, dear Capricorn. The Sun, currently transiting your sector of work, health, and habits, does battle with Mars n your sector of communications and personal interests. This conflict can either leave you feeling innerly conflicted or find you arguing with others — or a bit of both! Before voicing your unsatisfied desires, see if the feeling passes, particularly if the urges come on suddenly, and avoid rash decisions. If people are not catching on to your point of view, try waiting it out and resolve to present the same ideas at a later date. You can be on edge, especially if you have so much to do that you don’t know where to begin. Still, you may decide to ride on today’s competitive energy and use it to fix problems or areas of your life that have gotten out of hand. While the Moon continues to transit a hidden area of your solar chart, it moves into your sign later today, and you crave more connection.
AquariusWatch for impulsiveness today as the Sun and Mars form a square aspect, dear Aquarius. If an urge for something comes on very suddenly, it may be best to wait and see if it passes before indulging it. Foresight may be a little lacking right now. Your attention draws to limitations and ambitions regarding resources (including money), and these seem to clash with personal enjoyment, a romantic venture, or filling your desires. Another possibility is you get the sense that others are not treating you for what you’re worth, or for what you deserve! You’re certainly more sensitive than usual to how others seem to be valuing you. Balanced attention to practical matters now brings rewards later. While the drive to make more money or to feel more secure can be strong, try not to push yourself too hard or you’re likely to meet some resistance now. Competitive or frustrated feelings can challenge you to make meaningful changes and improvements.
PiscesWith a Sun-Mars square today, it’s all too easy to want too much too soon, dear Pisces. Impatience can trip you up. Your desire to settle in clashes with a need for more independence. Potential pitfalls of the day lie in impatience, rushing or pushing things, and ego issues. With Mars in your sign, your inner unrest can be so palpable that others sense it even if you attempt to hide it, contributing to a sense that everyone around you is on edge. Family or others close to you may not see things the same way you do, and it’s best not to take things personally, although challenging. Being direct and honest in your dealings is excellent, but the day requires extra sensitivity. Aim to channel excess energy into something that will be genuinely useful to you. It would be wise to slow down to handle your responsibilities before pressing ahead.
