Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesJupiter moves into your sign today, dear Aries. It’s a longer-term influence that brings you out of your shell, and it’s exciting! This Jupiter transit comes in two parts, the first of which runs from today until October 28th. Your confidence increases, and you seek more freedom to express and enjoy yourself during this cycle. New ideas and interests can be exciting. It’s a time when you naturally put more faith in yourself and your capabilities. You’re starting fresh with your personal image, manner, attitude towards life, independence, confidence levels, relationship with your body, and self-assertion. Jupiter is now enhancing your image, and you’ll find people more overtly appreciating you and your general vibe. You might start a new long-term endeavor that’s all about you or that comes from your self-starting, enterprising nature. There can be a distinct feeling of liberation from previously limiting, rigid, or stifling conditions in the period ahead. With Mercury turning retrograde today, take things slowly. Avoid expressing yourself prematurely about a matter or saying things you don’t truly mean as the shift occurs now.
TaurusMercury begins its retrograde today, dear Taurus, suggesting the need to take things a step at a time. You’ll do well for yourself if you give yourself the room and space to get to conclusions. Also today, Jupiter moves into your solar twelfth house–a quieter period for Jupiter, but certainly not without its benefits. The full Jupiter transit comes in two parts, the first of which is this one, lasting from today until October 28th. It’s a time of a meaningful inner spiritual search as you establish a deeper connection with your intuition. You’ll be gaining a better relationship with yourself from the inside out! Your sympathetic nature deepens, and you can thoroughly enjoy helping others. Discovering untapped resources or benefits from behind the scenes can figure strongly. This transit will develop further later in 2022 and into 2023. It brings benefits and more joy to your private world and behind-the-scenes activities. This Jupiter transit is a spiritual protector of sorts, and it’s a most excellent influence for enjoying your own company, gaining more peace, trusting your intuition, and supporting others or doing good deeds. In some ways, you’re preparing for Jupiter’s transit of your sign that’s coming next year, although your life is not actually on hold; this is more about healing yourself from the inside out. Some solitude and introspection can benefit you now.
GeminiMercury turns retrograde in your sign today, dear Gemini, signaling a need to look back before moving forward. There can be information clogs until next month, but this pause can help you catch up and make different choices and helpful edits. Also today, Jupiter moves into your friends and dreams sector. It’s part one of a transit that will develop even further next year. Ideally, you have more freedom to pursue objectives less about performance and more about enjoyment. This Jupiter transit reminds you of the need to enjoy yourself more often. You’ll be pouring more energy into friendships, networking, personal causes, and community or group associations with this booster transit. Fortunately, these things bring benefits to you. This transit’s first of two parts runs from today until October 28th. It’s a time to make a mission statement for your life regarding happiness goals or giving back to the community. You feel more positive and confident that you can reach your goals and dreams. Others can point you in new directions or open up opportunities for you, or there may be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically.
CancerJupiter’s move into your career and reputation sector today stirs your ambitions in a most pleasant way, dear Cancer. It’s the first leg of a two-part journey: Jupiter will be in this solar sector from today until October 28th and then December 20-May 16. You’ll feel more goal-oriented and might get some good feedback and recognition for your work or your effort towards your goals. More importantly, you feel proud of your accomplishments, motivating you to shoot a little higher. You might find yourself in a position to manage others, or there could be a promotion or more enjoyable work and goals during this pivotal transit. Your status and recognition can change for the better, or there could be a significant culmination such as a diploma or award, or the blossoming of a long-term project. People in authority tend to see your potential more than ever. You’re more visible, outgoing, and spirited in the period ahead. It’s a time for putting yourself out there with confidence with Jupiter at the top of your chart. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and there could be an inconvenient delay or turnaround, and decision-making is temporarily more challenging. Still, it’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work already in progress or backtracking over the past to find answers.
LeoJupiter begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Leo, and this fortunate transit arrives in two parts, the first of which lasts from today until October 28th. It encourages you to explore and expand your interests. You’re also more easygoing in your day-to-day life, as you find it easier to rise above minor problems and put things into perspective during this cycle. It’s an excellent influence on courses, studies, extracurricular activities, and interests. Jupiter pulls you out of a reflective, introspective phase and into a more outgoing, active, spontaneous cycle. There can be new opportunities to learn, publish, communicate, promote, or form cross-cultural connections of great value and benefit to you. Life-changing, positive experiences that expand your mind can figure strongly now. Aim for quality learning and challenge yourself to increase your knowledge and understanding of the world around you now. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and slowing down just a little makes sense. In the weeks ahead, you may need to return to an old project or redo and refine something you thought was complete. However, this apparent backtracking (until June 3rd) can lead to significant refinements and strengthening of key areas of your life. Waiting for information can be part of the picture.
VirgoJupiter moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Virgo, and it’s the first of two parts of a cycle that’s superb for financial improvements and your intimate life. This transit begins to unfold now and until October 28th. Increased benefits can come through others, a partner’s income could increase, or you might combine talents with someone to work towards an important goal. Your intimate world is rich and deep, and your connection to someone or a passion project deepens. Jupiter brings its gifts of confidence and courage to your private world. Your inner life might feel larger than life. This transit can bring financial gain, deepened relationships or more joy in an intimate relationship, and a generally easier time attracting support–moral, economic, or otherwise. Your relationship with yourself or with a partner can grow as you understand your deeper needs more fully and embrace the more hidden elements of your nature. You’re more courageous and interested in healing, growing, and overcoming your fears. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and there can be some backtracking and delays. While irritating at times, they also allow you to refine and improve your projects.
LibraJupiter moves into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, and the period ahead can be a time for entering or boosting a significant partnership or learning more about your relationship needs. This longer-term transit lasts from today until October 28th and continues later this year, from December 20th, 2022, until May 16th, 2023. It’s a powerful time for partnering, developing a relationship, coming to beneficial agreements, and benefiting from counseling. It’s a generally fortunate transit for legal and promotional matters. Someone coming into your life can be significant, or a current partnership improves. You might often feel that you have someone on your side during this cycle. Resolutions to long-standing problems in existing relationships can be part of the picture. Good publicity may come your way–you’re well-received and especially likable. With Mercury turning retrograde today, it’s best to be careful with how you express yourself through both the written and spoken word.
ScorpioJupiter begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Scorpio, motivating you to improve your health, daily habits, work, and routines. This transit will continue until October 28th and will return later from December 20th to May 16th. Finding more joy and satisfaction from your work is most helpful, and if you’re looking for new work, this is a very employable time! Increased faith and optimism can help you heal, and you can find new meaning in your duties. This influence is excellent for investing more pride and finding more joy in your daily routines. Self-improvement endeavors can be particularly enjoyable and successful. You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer, which can improve your morale and your output. It can be a delightful period for taking care of your daily affairs with a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. However, Mercury turns retrograde today, and it’s best to wait and see before making conclusions. You could be going over old problems, conversations, and negotiations, and some delays or information clogs are likely.
SagittariusJupiter moves into your sector of joy today, dear Sagittarius, and this longer-term transit is powerful for encouraging you to express and enjoy yourself. It comes in two parts, the first of which lasts from today until October 28th, when you’ll find new channels for pleasures, romance, or leisure. You might suddenly get in touch with a desire or discover a new interest that can be the focus of your attention for some time into the future. Improvements to areas of life associated with this sector of your solar chart are likely, including recreation, romance, and creative expression. It can be a fertile period on many levels. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and there can be some delays or information clogs. There may be the need to review, redo, or double-check your work.
CapricornJupiter heads into your solar fourth house today, dear Capricorn. During this longer-term cycle, you can experience some nice upgrades and enhancements to your home, family, and personal life. This transit will develop further in 2023, but it all gets started now (from today until October 28th). It’s a great time to improve bonds with loved ones and enhance or expand the home. Living arrangements and conditions are likely to improve. Being with family and building or enhancing your home can be especially enjoyable. You can feel very fulfilled, although not especially adventurous, during this transit. Inner and personal experiences hold far more appeal than more worldly pursuits at this time. You’ll also be working on building your emotional base and striving towards a general feeling of being centered. It’s a time for learning more about yourself, your heart, and the people closest to you. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and until June 3rd, you may be returning to old problems or reviewing recent decisions. Misunderstandings and delays are possible, but you also get the chance to see new layers to a situation.
AquariusJupiter’s move into your communications sector today is a booster transit, dear Aquarius. This longer-term aspect will play out in two sessions–this one is the first, lasting from today until October 28th. New ways to communicate, learn, and get around can open up for you. There can be a tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits with time and energy, but your enthusiasm for learning new things and taking on new projects can be incredible. Good vibes are with you to share your ideas or build skills. You’re likely to expand your contacts, communications, studies, and personal interests, and it feels good to do so. It can be a time for taking up further studies or hobbies or finding new and improved channels for communicating and commuting. Educational and communication opportunities emerge. There could be enhanced relations with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and acquaintances. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and until June 3rd, there may be some backtracking over old problems and conversations, and perhaps even contracts and negotiations. However, these temporary problems can lead to valuable changes, edits, and improvements.
PiscesJupiter heads out of your sign today, dear Pisces, and enters your resources sector. However, Jupiter is not yet finished with your sign–it will return to complete its transit from October 28th to December 20th–but moves on until then. With Jupiter now in a new sign until October 28th, there’s a theme of excellent developments and benefits revolving around money, earnings, possessions, and your personal talents in your life. It’s a fabulous time to build on existing resources, a business, or a project and enjoy the rewards of your past efforts. It can be a time of elevated confidence in yourself to manifest your desires. Your generosity increases. This transit is powerful for your money and resources, and on a psychological level, your self-worth and value. Look for opportunities to enhance your feelings of comfort, well-being, and security. Your earning power might increase, or new avenues for making money can open up in the period ahead. Your desire for creature comforts can grow, too! There can be a strong desire to pamper yourself, splurge, and luxuriate, and opportunities might emerge to do these things. While you should watch for extravagance, overall, this is a good cycle for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your talents and capabilities. Also today, Mercury turns retrograde, and it makes sense to wait and see rather than forge ahead. With the shift occurring now, you might deal with little things going wrong or misunderstandings. Be especially clear if it’s essential to get your message across.
