Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere is some tendency to misjudge matters or for obstacles to seem larger than life today, dear Aries. Keeping this in mind, you might toy with ideas but reserve judgment. Today’s energies are complicated for your practical affairs or comfort levels. You may need to address a problem related to a friendship, project, or money matter. You can be particularly sensitive to rejection or to feeling excluded. If you’re dealing with a humbling experience now, aim to take the lesson from it and move forward a little wiser. A good strategy may be to focus on your own commitments and responsibilities and do your best to meet them. Concentrating on what you can control can help minimize frustrations. For best results, you might avoid taking on more than you can reasonably handle. Believing in yourself based on a realistic assessment of your capabilities leads to more natural confidence. Taking action on a private matter or putting a problem behind you may be in positive focus.
TaurusPersonal projects and interests or studies can be appealing today, dear Taurus. However, a Sun-Saturn square reminds you of the rules or limits of a situation, and you can be pretty sensitive to criticism or blockages today. It’s a time to work towards a long-term goal and remind yourself that patience will be rewarded, rather than worrying too much about temporary obstacles. You may not get what you want just now, likely due to career or other responsibilities and limitations, but any slowdowns experienced today can help you focus your attention on those things that truly matter in the long term. Today is about reshuffling your priorities and finding better, more efficient ways to get things done. Today’s energies remind you of the need for more organization or self-discipline. As well, a Sun-Neptune transit encourages looking at things and people for their beauty rather than their flaws.
GeminiKeeping things moderate helps you enjoy the day’s opportunities, dear Gemini. However, a Sun-Saturn square can seem to magnify the flaws of a project or situation. It may be challenging to get through your routine, or delays can play with your enthusiasm and motivation levels. As much as you prefer to lay low and get the rest you need, obligations are likely to pull you out of your comfort zone. You may want to avoid facing a problem area. It can be a good idea to aim to fight feelings of being overwhelmed by tackling something small and striving to do more in steps as you advance. Even if there are delays, you might discover ways to improve plans and projects while you wait. Helping you with this is a Sun-Neptune transit. You might want to take action on a dream, private matter, or charitable feeling.
CancerResponsibilities and duties can loom large in your mind today, dear Cancer. The problems you encounter now with the Sun square to Saturn can be reality checks, slowing you down just enough to make necessary refinements. A plan or dream may hit some snags, and it may only need improvement or an adjustment of your expectations to get back on track. As well, it’s crucial to avoid cutting corners–it’s a day for paying closer attention to rules and details for the best results. Helping you take a break from overthinking to rest your brain is a Sun-Neptune connection that inspires you to dream and imagine possibilities. Look for refreshing changes of scenery or activities that promote emotional refreshment. Friendships might develop, or you could connect with interesting people and ideas.
LeoToday’s Sun-Saturn square reminds you to think in simpler terms and get things right before moving forward, dear Leo. Others may seem to stand in the way of your progress, but with a bit of effort and focus on your own goals, this can be an excellent time to make essential tweaks that contribute to long-term success. It’s possible you need to pare things down to move forward. Consider that any apparent slowdown occurring now requires patience. While obligations can feel burdensome in spots today, you also have opportunities to grow through your experiences. With a Sun-Neptune influence, channels for self-expression open as you see more possibilities. It’s a good idea to consider the more imaginative or spiritual side to long-term goals and career projects or your career path in general.
VirgoIt’s good to wait until you feel more clear-headed before deciding on something important, dear Virgo, as perceptions are a little skewed. Even with possible misjudgments, interesting possibilities can ultimately emerge. A Sun-Saturn square is a signal to get something right before pushing forward. There’s no need to go against the tide. It’s a time for correcting problems that may have accumulated due to shortcuts taken in the past. Seeing errors and fixing them now means you’ll be freer and more confident later. However, you could have a breakthrough on an intellectual level or about a belief. Supporting others or self-improvement efforts can be especially rewarding now.
LibraWith today’s Sun-Saturn square, it’s easier to see the flaws, perhaps a little too much so, dear Libra. Streamlining and simplifying are important strategies because doing so will reduce waste and save you time in the long term, even if it feels as if it’s slow going currently. Temporary setbacks may discourage you now, but they could also lead to greater happiness later, so be as patient as possible. A connection between Sun and Neptune helps you see the meaning or brighter side of things. Intuitive hunches can lead you to the right information and creative ways to improve your work or health. Supporting others or self-improvement efforts can be rewarding.
ScorpioToday’s Sun-Saturn square could pit your need for personal space against your desire for feedback or company, dear Scorpio. Try not to read too much into slowdowns, as the flaws of a situation appear more prominent than the strengths temporarily. You could be second-guessing a partner, a plan, or yourself today. Try to use a temporary block, hesitation, or delay as a chance to catch your breath. As a result, you might come to a more realistic assessment of a relationship or project. Fortunately, a Sun-Neptune aspect, also in play, builds your faith that things will unfold as they should, helping you relax and opening your heart.
SagittariusMotivation or energy levels may seem to wane just a little today, dear Sagittarius, and timing may be off, or a delay can be part of the picture. However, seeing the flaws of a situation helps you identify what needs fixing before you move forward. You’re more sensitive to limits and restrictions, and it’s best to remind yourself that taking the time to perfect something will be rewarding and satisfying in the long run. A project may need a second look. Try not to waste time on feeling overwhelmed, and instead, pick something small and work from there. It’s wise to consider that a reality check can help you get back on track. Fortunately, you can bring a bit of imagination, creativity, and generosity to the things you’re doing or the services you provide.
CapricornWhile the Sun’s transit is now bringing more playful and expressive energy into your life, dear Capricorn, there are natural breaks to this flow, and today may be one of those times. Insecurity or responsibility might hold you back from expressing yourself openly and naturally. Today’s Sun-Saturn square reminds you of certain realities and practical factors related to recent projects and relationship developments. Your attention turns to limitations, likely having to do with resources. Another possibility with this combination is the sense that others are not treating you for what you’re worth. Taking a lesson from a humbling experience can be very worth your while, saving you time and energy in the long run. Attention to practical matters now brings rewards later. A Sun-Neptune influence also in play helps with patience. Even with Mercury still retrograde, you have a special edge in expressing yourself in ways that don’t rely entirely on the right words.
AquariusWith today’s Sun-Saturn square, blocks can slow you down long enough to see potential problems or drawbacks that previously escaped your attention, dear Aquarius. With the Sun’s current transit of your home and family sector, the need to get comfortable is strong. You might deal with competing to get things done independently today. For example, you may need to get nagging problems out of the way before enjoying some peace. If you feel cut off or unappreciated, aim to be more explicit about your needs, but save important conversations for a day when you feel fresh. With a Sun-Neptune transit also influencing the day, it’s best to focus on activities that bring inner rewards.
PiscesToday’s Sun-Saturn square can turn your attention to what’s not working in your life, dear Pisces. Ideally, it leads to straightening out problems and ironing out the details. Remember that you may be judging yourself or your performance too harshly, but taking notes or lessons from whatever is happening now will serve you best. It may be better to think things through and wait things out. Helping you with this is a Sun-Neptune transit. Your finer qualities and inner strength seem to shine through for others to see. While strictly speaking, the words you’re choosing may not be perfect, you’re communicating with imagination and unique flair.
