Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIf you’ve been letting frustration build, dear Aries, transits today can bring this to the surface. Mercury in your privacy sector draws your attention to those things left untied. It clashes with impatient Mars and paranoid Pluto, and you can feel mentally unsettled or distracted, perhaps inclined to rush through communications, leading to unnecessary complications. Competitiveness can be grating rather than inspiring today. Still, you might channel excess energy into a pursuit that benefits you, such as resolving a nagging problem. Try not to put plans into motion only because you’re feeling impatient. Consider waiting until you’re confident and have time to put more thought into them. It may be better to keep a lid on a new idea and reserve judgment for a more clear-headed time. The trick may be to identify tense, edgy energy and not let it rule your day.
TaurusToday’s Mercury-Mars square can create some tension, dear Taurus, making it easier to get all riled up about a matter. This influence seems to stir impatience, and it’s best to avoid pushing issues that you can’t change. Still, you may need to get something out of your system, and it’s a good idea to aim for mindful communications. Confrontations can be part of the picture now, or it may be that you want to put something behind you quickly and make an impulsive move. For best results, identify your priorities and recognize that you can’t do everything at once. You might use excess energy to take care of a nagging problem and put it behind you. Control or power games are tempting now, particularly if you feel frustrated about a matter of ownership or jealousy, but it’s not the solution to problems. You might also be a little too quick to jump to your defense (or someone else) before you know the whole story. Think up better ways to deal with irritating situations today — ways that will serve your interests not only today but down the road. Ultimately, difficulties understanding a situation now can lead to solutions and good feelings.
GeminiToday’s transits tend to easily rile you up, particularly if you feel pressure to rush a matter, dear Gemini. It’s best not to communicate too soon or too quickly on a matter, keeping in mind that instant results won’t be satisfying even if they do appear. Watch that you don’t step over yourself in your haste to get where you want to go. You tend to feel your desires with more intensity and urgency, complicating matters. Aim to focus on softening and moderating your impulses. While your thinking tends to be practical and goal-oriented these days, emotions can muddy the waters today, and you can find it challenging to concentrate. While conversations can be tricky now, you might pull something out of them that ultimately helps you understand your needs and ambitions.
CancerTransits today can generate some minor emotional or psychological frustration and tensions, dear Cancer. Watch for impatience or restlessness that tend to lead to unnecessary stress or waste. For best results, look for inspiration and avoid rushing things, considering whether you should take more time on a matter before pushing it to the finish line. As well, choose your battles wisely. Allow mental unrest to motivate you to do something constructive. There can be anger issues emerging that are difficult to understand or define. Still, they may have their root in relationships in which you feel there is far too much imbalance. Consider ways to plan out your next move rather than push your agenda now when the chances of achieving your goals are small. Take what you need to learn from an experience and avoid dwelling. Some doubt may be a good thing for you now as you test the strength of a venture or idea.
LeoRestlessness can stir some tensions today, dear Leo. Watch for what and how you communicate, especially since you’re hungry for stimulation, but you may not know where to find it. There can be disagreements with associates or friends, or competition riles you up today. Aim to resolve a problem that’s been lingering for far too long, but avoid pressuring yourself to do so quickly. Wanting to get to the meaning behind an issue that you feel is pressing may seem unimportant later, so do consider whether it’s necessary to push a matter. Interpersonal tensions are likely, or impatience with projects that don’t seem to be coming together soon enough can figure strongly with today’s transits. You may want to experiment with new ideas and projects but can’t find the space for all of your pursuits now. Draw on your reserves of self-control and channel your energies into something beneficial to you. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign, firing up your emotional sensors.
VirgoYou may feel pressure to make everything perfect or overdo, dear Virgo, which can lead to problems, impatience, or poor choices. Mercury in your partnership sector squares Mars, and both planets challenge Pluto. Others may be pressuring you, but ideally, you seem to need a gentle nudge to get going, and the tension generated now does the trick. However, some disruptions and agitations are likely related to work, responsibilities, and partnership. A strong desire to get something done or achieve a goal can be part of this, and anything else in your life becomes a distraction. It can be difficult to rise above tensions today, but feeling on edge can be a symptom of something deeper that’s worth exploring. You can too easily trip over yourself as you doubt or second-guess people or projects in your life right now. Try to relax and don’t push things that are better left to run their natural course. Later today, the Moon heads into your solar twelfth house, pointing to the need for extra rest or time for reflection.
LibraTransits today tend to make you feel you need to rush, dear Libra, but doing so may lead to unnecessary problems and tensions. Disagreements can assume large proportions. Ideally, however, problem areas become so annoying or unavoidable that you feel motivated to resolve a long-standing matter. You might become frustrated with a perspective not catching on or understood, or you might feel particularly restless but emotionally stuck. If thoughts begin to circle and become obsessive, try to pull yourself out of it. The Moon heads into your solar eleventh house later today, and you’re inclined to think about what or who makes you happy, putting aside ambitions for a spell. More attention to a friend or happiness pursuit can be rewarding and natural now.
ScorpioToday’s transits incline us to impatience or disagreement, dear Scorpio, although discontent might move you to make changes. You may get the feeling that you need to push or rush a matter when in reality, you might need to give it more thought. It’s best not to speak too soon or without thinking today because what you say may not represent you or your feelings. Ideally, new ideas result from disruptions now, but it’s best to watch for abrupt moves to avoid complications. Because there is a tendency to act compulsively or to see problems as bigger than they are, you might want to save decisions for a better time. You can be driven to get to the truth of a matter or to find an answer to a problem, but this can come at the cost of time, energy, and perhaps most importantly, spirit. Avoid stressing over the little things. Ideally, after second-guessing something, you ultimately recognize its value and feel stronger in your convictions.
SagittariusThere is some tendency to be abrupt with words and actions today, dear Sagittarius, as Mercury clashes with Mars and Pluto. People are distracted, and interactions are complicated. With impatience under check, you may find ways to break out along a new path of expression. It’s better not to rush things and to manage disagreeableness. It would also be wise to be especially mindful of automatic responses to others or frustrating situations. Consider ways to release tension or resentment productively. Try not to allow someone who is cynical or doubting to bring you down a rung. The Moon moves into your spirit sector later today, which can stimulate a desire to learn or experience something new.
CapricornWatch for hasty moves and jumping too quickly to conclusions, dear Capricorn. Mercury in your thinking and talking sector forms tense aspects to Mars and Pluto today, and you could have far too much on your plate. Because skipping over details can be a problem, simplifying or focusing on one thing at a time may help. If you look at things from a different angle, there is high energy available to you on a mental level now, and this can get you all pumped up for a constructive pursuit. Slowing down just a little can help smooth your path. Try not to drive yourself too hard now, and if you feel pressure to do so, examine why this may be the case. You might second-guess a recent endeavor, idea, or belief, but you might decide to test the strength of your plans before pouring more energy into them.
AquariusYou might find yourself on edge in spots today, dear Aquarius, with Mercury in hard aspect to both Mars and Pluto. Ideally, these energies push you to take care of something you’ve let go of or taking on an intellectual challenge. It’s best to avoid communicating too quickly or too soon on a matter today. Passions rise, and conflicts can result. Jumping into a purchase can also be a problem, and defensiveness can interfere with healthy communications. A sense of urgency to fill your desires may lead to clashes. You might suspect someone of having a hidden agenda. Moderation and patience are key, even if they’re difficult to put into practice.
PiscesProblems may result from pushing something too quickly today, dear Pisces. Try not to give in to pressures to say or do something in haste. Family or home matters might conflict with your plans. There may be a disagreement, and the best way to resolve it is to put egos aside. Try not to jump to conclusions or speak out of turn since impatience can lead to needless frustration today. Watch also for taking the long, difficult route to your goals when uncomplicated may be best. There is a tendency to misjudge what you can do or in what timeframe. You might second-guess a project, idea, or friend now, but the results of this can reconfirm your faith in the matter. Later today, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and it’s a good time to sort out your practical affairs.
