Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s transits are good for setting your emotions aside to tackle practical tasks, dear Aries, and for considering improvements to your practical affairs. Aim to examine ways you might take better care of your needs, which can boost your confidence. Also today, Pluto moves into your solar eleventh house. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years to come, you’ll see some preliminary changes from now until June 11th. During this cycle, your attitudes toward friends and group involvements are transforming. You see the very beginnings of a long-term phase that’s powerful for networking and connecting. You’ll be in a strong position to advance your interests through your connections with others, and your experiences can be rewarding, educational, and empowering. Even so, there can be strong attachments that aren’t always comfortable and possibly complex feelings involved. Friendships or group associations that haven’t empowered you or are no longer doing so may be left behind, but this makes room for more authentic, healthier connections. During this trend, it’s a good idea to guard against overattachment and micromanaging your social life or holding on too tightly to goals and dreams to the point that you’re no longer enjoying yourself. Some of you may be dealing with betrayals that ultimately show you who your true friends are – and aren’t. This is also a time when your long-term dreams and hopes shift dramatically. You could be searching for greater meaning and purpose – you want to do something that truly makes an impact or a difference. This theme will return and resume in 2024.
TaurusWhile you can begin the day wanting to keep a low-profile, dear Taurus, the Moon’s move into your sign brings you out of your shell. Expressing your feelings is a way of nurturing yourself at this time of the lunar month. Also today, the first hint of a new Pluto theme in your life begins. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for many years, you’ll see some preliminary changes now and until June 11th. Career, professional matters, and public life begin to transform, requiring deep and lasting fundamental changes. For best results, use this cycle as a challenge to improve in these life departments. Your ambition is more intense, and you might deal with people who are jealous of you and who are finding fault in what you do. However, any trials and tests emerging during this cycle can push you onto the right path and challenge you to become stronger and more confident in your abilities. You might discover a deep inner need to grow and develop your business or career and uncover ambitions you never knew they had. Fears of underperforming can come to the fore under this influence, and it’s time to find ways to eradicate them.
GeminiWith the Moon’s move into your solar twelfth house, dear Gemini, it’s a time to seek quiet moments and possibly some solitude to rejuvenate yourself emotionally. Also this week, a new Pluto theme is beginning. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for many years, you’ll see some preliminary changes now until mid-June. Your outlook, attitudes, belief systems, and learning are set to transform. It’s possible you purge some beliefs or attitudes that no longer work for you during this long-term transit. There can be fantastic exposure to a new perspective, lifestyle, or culture. Publishing important work can figure strongly. You’re in excellent shape to boost your life experiences or studies. Studying new ideas or topics can be life-changing. You’re approaching your life or topics of interest and projects with more gusto and passion. You can be a mentor or help others in significant ways. Pouring your heart and soul into your efforts comes naturally now. Freeing yourself from limiting attitudes is a process that will unfold a little at a time, and it’s empowering. Even so, you may need to work through tension and fear to get to this place. Fears tend to relate to the road ahead, long-term plans, skills, knowledge, and faith in your future.
CancerYou can act as a stabilizing force for people in your life right now, dear Cancer, and this is especially true of your friends and associates or group associations. Also today, a new Pluto theme begins. During this long-term cycle, root changes to how you share or borrow money or in the support you receive are in store. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for many years, you’ll feel some inner stirrings until June 11th. Attitudes toward dependencies on others, finances, and intimacy begin to transform. It’s a time to make empowering changes and choices. This influence changes how you connect with others on intimate levels and your passion projects. Dealing with the darker or more hidden aspects of yourself can be transformative. Healing activities and abilities can figure strongly. You can benefit greatly from in-depth research, investigating, or digging. Or, there can be an important epiphany about a relationship or your inner motivations. It’s a time to recognize your deeper desires and ambitions, although you can also come face to face with some of your fears, which can be revealing.
LeoYour priorities or long-term goals come into stronger focus today, dear Leo. It’s a good time to work on projects that truly matter and take care of business. Restructuring and organizing efforts can pay off. Also this week, a new Pluto theme is with you. This transit won’t kick in consistently until 2024, but while it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years, you’ll feel some stirrings until June 11th. Attitudes toward partnerships, close personal relationships, compromise, and significant others begin to transform. Aim to arrive at a deeper understanding of your needs from your partnerships, whether romantic, platonic, financial, or therapeutic. These connections are complex and sometimes complicated during this cycle, but they also hold the potential for rich learning experiences. Power struggles are possible, and it’s best to look honestly at fears of failure, success, and betrayal that can emerge.
VirgoThe Moon heads into your solar ninth house, dear Virgo, encouraging you to find ways to break out of the usual routine. You can gain more emotional clarity when sharing your thoughts or feelings with a partner or special friend today. This week, a new Pluto theme is with you. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for many years, you’ll see some initial changes until June 11th. Your attitudes toward work, duties, services you provide for others, daily routines, and health begin transforming. It’s a powerful period for ridding yourself of bad habits or ineffective methods, but be careful not to replace one bad habit with another! You’ll need to watch for pressures to perform and obsessions with taking care of details. Watch for excess and burning the candle at both ends, which is a real temptation. However, this theme is also powerful for making long-lasting beneficial changes to your habits, work, and routines. It’s a time to discover your deeper ambitions in these areas.
LibraYou might have support from your work, or your routines and chores are pleasantly involving today, dear Libra. Pursuing your goals can be especially satisfying. Also today, a new Pluto theme is weaving into your life. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years, you’ll see some preliminary changes now until June 11th. Love affairs can bring intense personal transformations during this cycle. You can meet people who turn you inside out, and through experiences with them, you learn more about your own power over your life. While experience is good — it builds character — aim to protect your heart and body by employing some caution with new people. It’s a fabulous time for digging deep and exploring your creativity.
ScorpioWith the Moon’s move into your solar seventh house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, you look for ways to balance your life, or you could seek some feedback. Also today, a new Pluto theme is with you. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years to come, you’ll feel some stirrings now and until mid-June. Attitudes towards home and family are transforming. There can be a retreat into yourself during this long-term cycle as you deeply explore your roots, childhood conditioning, and feelings of personal security. It’s a time to excavate, change, and renovate your life from the ground up or from the inside out. Deep, lasting changes and improvements can occur on physical and emotional planes. Activities related to purging and emotional renewal can figure strongly.
SagittariusActivities that involve taking care of problems, tidying, organizing, and micromanaging can fare particularly well today, dear Sagittarius. A new Pluto theme also begins today. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years to come, you’ll see some preliminary shifts and feel some stirrings now and until June 11th. Communication, learning, and daily life are transforming. It’s an excellent, long-term period for studies, writing, and communicating, although there is a tendency towards intensity that can sometimes work against you if you’re not careful. Watch for taking on too much. Otherwise, it can be a rewarding time for personal influence and persuasion. You’re learning to embrace your ambitions and recognize the need to change, reform, and renovate your projects.
CapricornPeople may turn to you for advice, particularly for tricky matters, dear Capricorn, or communications today are beneficial and handy. Also today, a new Pluto theme begins. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for many years, you’ll see some initial stirrings and shifts now and until June 11th. During this cycle, your attitudes toward finances, possessions, money, and personal values transform. Life lessons might occur for you to get in better touch with self-worth, principles, self-defense, and money attitudes. There can be changes in the source or level of your income. You may have to face control issues and possessiveness and learn how to better manage this part of your life. There can also be great changes in your friendships or strong private elements to your associations. Aim to get in touch with your deeper desires and ambitions.
AquariusPluto enters your sign today, dear Aquarius, but it won’t be long before it retreats into Capricorn again (in June). While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years, you’ll experience some preliminary shifts and changes this year. Your outer personality is reshaping, and how you approach life and new challenges begin to transform. It’s a time to reinvent yourself! You will need to resist the urge to control the events of your life, how you come across to others, and your manner during this important cycle. You’re learning about your inner motivations, and sometimes this could be an uncomfortable process because you are getting in touch with the darker elements of your psyche at the same time. However, you are ultimately learning that you cannot control the events of your life or others and how they feel about you, but you can learn self-control. You’re tapping into your inner power, and how you handle it will make all the difference in the quality of your experiences. Superficial attitudes or manners of self-expression no longer do it for you. Aim to be true to yourself and your principles during this long-term cycle. Today, the Moon heads into your solar fourth house, and you crave downtime. You are more able to deal with the nitty-gritty today, making it an excellent time to focus on tasks that benefit from a solid or focused mindset.
PiscesPluto moves into your solar twelfth house today, dear Pisces. While it’s only a sneak preview of a transit that will stick around for years, you’ll see some changes from now until June 11th. For example, attitudes toward spirituality and the past begin to transform–you’re doing crucial long-term work concerning purging past attitudes and confronting inner demons. You may confront deeply buried aspects of your psyche and learn unusual things about the hidden side of your nature. With this knowledge, you are also learning to control it! Matters you’ve buried, such as past events that you are ashamed of, emerge and require handling. You must face your ghosts honestly, and as you do, self-improvement efforts can be tremendous. You’re renovating on emotional levels–you’re seeing the attitudes or situations in your life that may have driven self-destructive behavior or are at the root of feelings of powerlessness. This influence is only just beginning and, once it takes hold next year, will be with you for many years to come. It’s a generally good time to clear away lingering problems. Figuratively speaking, you are cleaning out the closet! There can also be deep changes in your educational path or belief systems in this long-term cycle. Today, you seek to learn something truly useful or practical.
