Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’d probably prefer to observe others than to actively connect today, dear Aries, but you’re certainly not unfriendly. There can be some tension if you’re feeling restricted or without direction. Mars, the planet of action and your ruler, begins its transit of your solar third house today. Mars here energizes, heats up, and perhaps speeds up your communications, transportation, and studies until April 23rd. You’re enthusiastic, ready to pour your energies into your learning pursuits, personal interests, and projects. Watch for impatience with words and movements during this cycle. That said, this can be an excellent time for motivation to tackle various tasks or a communications project. It’s a time for feeding your need for mental stimulation, ideally without overdoing it.
TaurusYou’re particularly concerned with close relationships today, dear Taurus. Mars, the planet of drive, passion, energy, and anger, begins its transit of your solar second house today and will stick around here until April 23rd. This Mars transit stimulates a stronger interest in your material needs and wants–you have more courage or drive to pursue these things. It’s time to focus on what makes you feel secure and ways to achieve more comfort, familiarity, and security. On a different level, you might work on self-esteem issues and build confidence in your value or worth. Impulsive spending is a possibility, but this can also be a time of increased ambition or practical accomplishments. It can also be a time when you are particularly protective of your things, ideas, and personal space. Certainly, if people have overstepped or taken advantage of you, you might manage this now.
GeminiIt’s a good day for original ideas and problem-solving, dear Gemini. However, it would help if you watched for impatience and hastiness. Seeing your priorities helps you along now. The day should be rich for working on your practical affairs. Mars enters your sign today, and you’ll host this action-oriented planet until April 23rd. There have been important discoveries about your inner world and unfinished business in recent weeks, but it hasn’t been straightforward to release these things. Now that Mars is in Gemini, you seem to have more fire and dynamism to draw upon and express. If there aren’t clear channels, you’ll make them! It’s a busy, dynamic, and resourceful time. It’s also a strong period for attracting friendships.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your recreation sector, dear Cancer, bringing out a need to share your affection with others, to play and enjoy, and to celebrate. You’re likely to feel pleasantly stimulated and motivated now, with a sense that you’re naturally moving towards the things you truly love. Mars begins its transit of your soul sector today, where it will stay until April 23rd, when it starts its tour of your sign. The weeks ahead are strong for reflection, taking action on private matters, and recognizing previously buried frustrations that have been operating just under the surface. You may feel as if you’ve reached a point of overload and now need to take some time to recoup your energy. It’s a good time to process, digest, and understand. You can experience unusual but compelling attractions and desires if you’ve been out of touch with your inner self. You tend to channel more of your energy into private matters during this cycle.
LeoThe need for resting and nesting continues today with the Moon in your solar fourth house all day, dear Leo. Aim to catch your breath on an emotional level–pacing yourself makes sense now. Also now, Mars enters your social sector for a stay that lasts until April 23rd, bringing smoother energy for moving your plans forward and going after what you want. It can be a pleasantly busy period ahead when you’re in demand socially or a time when you’re especially motivated to build long-term plans. Even so, if there has been tension building with a friend, it can boil over during this cycle. You can be very active with planting seeds for future projects or experimenting with your many options. This transit can stimulate a desire to oversee and organize projects. Your desire for the freedom to be yourself and express yourself authentically is strong.
VirgoYou are chatty, communicative, and curious today, dear Virgo. Others are cooperative and looking forward rather than getting stuck in a groove, although a little prone to sensitivity with differences of opinion. Also today, Mars heads to the top of your solar chart and will transit here until April 23rd. This transit encourages your ambitions and drive, and it also stimulates a need for action. If you’ve been sitting on your hands regarding a pursuit, this is the time to get moving. Impulsive moves and conflicts with authority may be problem areas, mind you, but it’s a good time otherwise for tapping into your need for clear goals, gentle challenges, and exciting plans. It’s an innovative, self-starting period when you’re inclined to take the initiative.
LibraYour spirit needs some comfort and familiarity today with the Moon in your solar second house all day, dear Libra. It’s a good day to focus on the present and benefit from this strategy–earthy, comforting activities are in favor. Also today, Mars moves into harmony with your sign for a stay until April 23rd. With this new transit, pursuing your desires comes more naturally. You are subtly more confident, outgoing, braver, more courageous, and less inhibited. Healthy competition can figure strongly now, and you can be gently challenging yourself to improve as you seek experiences that enhance your sense of well-being or engagement with the world around you. Relationships benefit from some shared fun, non-routine, or new activities and approaches.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to express yourself. There’s a nice spirit of cooperation around you, and emotional energy runs high, making you more vibrant and noticeable. Also today, Mars moves into your solar eighth house for a stay until April 23rd. Mars brings much energy, heat, and desire to your intimate world. Watch for the magnification of problem areas, particularly related to suspicion. While this transit can stir up power and sharing issues, sometimes in challenging ways, you can choose to use this time constructively. You might resolve problem areas in your relationships and make plans and strategies for achieving your goals. This can be a deep, passionate time when you’re particularly courageous about dealing with your inner demons and the trickier elements of your life that tie you in unhealthy ways to people and things.
SagittariusToday’s transits incline you to need some personal space or time to think, dear Sagittarius. Try to tame temptations to do it all and give yourself a break. Mars moves into your partnership sector and opposing sign (Gemini) until April 23rd. The weeks ahead can be animated, energized, passionate, and sometimes problematic for close relationships. Problems that have been brewing under the surface of things with others may now emerge, and it’s time to confront them. However, it’s through others that you’re learning the most about yourself during this cycle. There can be much activity in the relationship department or your social life. Instead, this can be a time for particularly significant negotiation or counseling sessions. It’s important to be active with a partner or to channel excess energy well.
CapricornAim to pay some attention to your need for pressure-free interactions, dear Capricorn. You can be feeling nice friendship vibes and kinship today. It’s important not to take on too much today, as tempted as you may be with new ventures and ideas or connections. Mars moves into your work and health sector today and will continue to transit this area of your solar chart, energizing these life departments, until April 23rd. Daily life may speed up and might sometimes be a little chaotic without careful management. You could deal with a larger workload, or this transit is about wanting to do more. With energy channeled well, you can get quite a bit done in the weeks ahead. Setting your own pace, if possible, can be most successful. This transit brings heaps of motivation and energy for work, chores, or routines.
AquariusThe energies of the day tend to support a goal-oriented approach, and it can feel good to gently nurse ambition without pressure or stress, dear Aquarius. It’s easy to take the lead and get things done. Mars moves into harmony with your sign today for a transit that runs until April 23rd. It’s an especially active period for romance, entertainment, personal appeal, or the pursuit of pleasure and hobbies. There is always the possibility of raised passions, conflict, impatience, and impulsiveness with Mars, but it can be an enthusiastic and courageous period when channeled well. Your love life may pick up pace, or you can be pouring extra energy into heartfelt projects. Overall, this is a smoother cycle that encourages easier, more natural self-assertion. It can be a good time for physical activity and competition, in general. You are bound to put more energy into pleasure and play in the weeks ahead.
PiscesThe Moon in your spirit sector harmonizes with the Sun in your sign today, dear Pisces, and it can be easier than usual to work off steam by channeling emotions and energy into a creative or another non-routine pursuit. However, Mars enters your home and family sector, and in the weeks ahead, this transit emphasizes the need to recharge your energy. It’s an active cycle for getting things done on the homefront. Excess energy in your home and family sector can sometimes stir up conflict, but it’s useful for bringing problem areas out into the open. It’s a strong period for taking charge of your personal life and making improvements. While it’s not always straightforward to assert yourself in a general sense during this cycle, obstacles can also serve to motivate you.
