Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe first half of the day can require more rest and reflection, dear Aries. Even if you’ve embraced your duties in recent days, they can appear more limiting or frustrating temporarily. Responsibilities to others can interfere with domestic pursuits, especially, and attempts to disengage may be helpful if you are dwelling on an obstacle. This becomes easier as the day advances. Your feelings and affections are especially warm, and it’s a good time to set priorities and appreciate and enjoy simple things. It’s not a time for pushing or reaching beyond boundaries, but you’re in great shape to emotionally prepare for more demanding days. Strive for a sense of being grounded, rooted, and secure today for best results, but stay open to new ways of getting comfortable.
TaurusIn the first half of the day, you may face some disapproval for an idea or project, dear Taurus. Or, you might wrestle with a desire to do your own thing, but responsibilities seem to get in your way. It would be best to be a little more careful than usual about what you communicate. Details of your plans may not be in focus yet, but are likely to fall into place as you go along. Try not to make firm plans in the meantime. As the day advances, it becomes a good time for positive gestures and making contact with others. You tend to move from one activity to the next rather than specialize. Your eagerness to explore new options keeps you engaged and interesting.
GeminiEnergy levels are not at their best in the first half of the day, dear Gemini, when you might be feeling guilty or uncertain about your desires and your next step. There can be a sense that you’re overwhelmed with your duties and responsibilities. It’s temporary–a Mars-Saturn transit reminds you to slow things down and get things right. Your obligations can feel more limiting than usual as they’re contrasting with your strong desire to break out and do your own thing. Some buried resentments can surface but aim to learn from them rather than allowing them to rule your behavior. It’s easier to focus on what’s working in your life as the day advances. Practical matters thrive with your powerful intuition. Logic and emotions mix quite beautifully, making it an excellent time to put what you have to better use.
CancerIn the first half of the day, there can be some feeling of being caged in or limited by others or circumstances, dear Cancer. People may seem to be slowing you down or getting in the way of the pursuit of your desires. In relationships, a question of the depth of feelings or commitment can emerge. It’s a time for making adjustments and waiting for a time when you’re more confident and the timing is right. Your mood softens as the day advances. Self-acceptance is the key. The Moon in your sign harmonizes with Uranus in your friendship sector, and you’ll find it easier than usual to express yourself. This is certainly a time in the lunar month for self-nurturing, but there are also good channels for expressing your emotions through sharing.
LeoIn the first half of the day, attempts to move forward seem to be thwarted in little, irritating ways, dear Leo. With Mars in your privacy sector in recent weeks, desires can come bubbling up, seemingly out of nowhere, and so can resentments. Today, with Mars in an awkward angle to Saturn, you could feel out of touch. There can be a standstill with a partner or simply a delay that restricts you from taking action. Minor upsets can ultimately lead to a greater understanding, however. As well, as the day advances, it’s easier to disconnect and catch a break. The Moon transits your privacy sector, drawing your attention to behind the scenes, background, and private matters. While there is a real tendency to want to escape or retreat from the usual noise and activity of life, routine can be dissatisfying as well now, and a change of scenery may be just right.
VirgoResponsibilities or rules may feel heavier than usual in the first half of the day, dear Virgo, or you see your limits and feel a little put off by them. Timing may be off temporarily, and others may be misinterpreting your intentions or actions. It would be best to keep things low-key just for now, focusing on making necessary adjustments. You may be better off sticking with familiar situations than branching out and taking risks temporarily. As the day advances, it’s easier to detach yourself from frustrations. You might crave some recreation or inspiration. There can be stimulating conversations in your social network, perhaps sparking an exciting project.
LibraResponsibilities may weigh more heavily on you in the first half of today, dear Libra. Or, limits can be cumbersome as Mars and Saturn form an awkward aspect that can have you questioning your motivation levels. Instead, a problem could catch you off guard and temporarily rain on your parade or slow you down. Look for things to fix or details to fill in–it may be better to make adjustments before pushing ahead. Critique can be annoying, but ultimately, it may very well help you. As the day advances, it’s easier to feel fine about your duties. You could feel ready to challenge yourself just a little, catching a feeling that you want to reach greater heights. You can accomplish a great deal on practical levels.
ScorpioIn the first half of the day, a Mars-Saturn aspect can indicate the need for an adjustment or small wake-up call, dear Scorpio. As a result, you might recognize a need to change your dependencies or your approach to money. Responsibilities to your personal life or domestic life can feel more limiting than usual, but it’s a temporary redirection. Or, you could feel criticized or restricted by someone close to you. You can feel as if you are getting in the way of one another rather than working together. Focusing on practical matters and details may fare best until timing matters smooth over. As the day progresses, it’s easier to take things as they come. Still, you want to escape the duller, mundane matters of daily life. If you can take a detour from the routine, your mood tends to elevate.
SagittariusTiming may feel a little off in the first part of the day, dear Sagittarius. There can be difficulties communicating your feelings or a sense that others are being insensitive to you. Either way, limitations feel weightier than usual. You might want to go forward with something but then freeze when it comes to making it happen or choosing the right words to get the ball rolling. A Mars-Saturn transit is at the root of this, and it’s best handled with patience. Waiting until you’ve rebuilt your confidence is a good idea. As the day advances, it’s easy to detach from problems. It’s much easier to tackle tricky issues. You can benefit from taking a step back and planning your next move.
CapricornThe energies of the first half of the day can stimulate underlying insecurities, dear Capricorn, particularly related to money matters. On another level, this can be about trust, self-worth, and whether or not others are valuing you. It’s probably best to focus on positive, productive tasks, which becomes far more manageable as the day advances. You’re adaptable and accommodating, and you have a way of expressing yourself that draws people in and encourages them to open up. You’re finding improved ways to merge, compromise, and interact, or opportunities arise for a fresh approach to relating.
AquariusA Mars-Saturn transit influencing the first half of the day can leave you feeling the weight of duties or obligations, dear Aquarius. As a result, a wait-and-see approach to pursuing your desires may be in order, especially if there is a part of you that is reluctant to jump in with both feet. Your wish to do something or get ahead is strong, but there can be blocks to manage. There may be a minor health or work problem to attend to that upsets plans now, or you may feel some waning of enthusiasm temporarily. These things can redirect you in positive ways, even if timing feels quite off temporarily. As the day advances, you find it far easier to detach from frustrations. Life seems more manageable as you begin to tune out distractions.
PiscesSmall practical changes made now can bring rewards later, dear Pisces, although it can be frustrating in the moment. You can experience some see-sawing with Mars and Saturn aspect influencing the first half of the day. On the one hand, you feel the need to use caution or to slow down, but on the other, you may be feeling pressured or impatient to pursue a desire. It’s better to fine-tune plans and get the details right before moving things along. With a lot going on inside you, it’s better not to do battle with the outside world. As the day advances, it comes more naturally to pay attention to the things you love. Energy flows particularly well for relationships, creative pursuits, and communications.
