Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars, your fiery and courageous ruling planet, begins its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Aries. This seven-week transit brings extra dynamism, stimulation, and action to your creative, entertainment, and romantic worlds. It can be a time for stepping up your creative life, hobbies, pastimes, or leisure activities. If this energy is channeled well, this is a good time to pursue your heart’s desire. Your direct approach tends to get you results. You’re in an energized period for relationships until July 10th. You may be bringing a relationship or project to a new level. Today, however, there can be much stubbornness, making it tough to compromise. Insecurities in relationships can seem to magnify or grow larger than life, or problems in a friendship can reach a head. Mixed signals are possible. You may feel it’s best to stay out of it, but if something needs releasing, this can be a time for turning a corner. Resentment robs you of energy, so do what you can to release and purge rather than hold onto negative feelings. Aim to learn about vulnerable areas that seem to be easily triggered today.
TaurusMars begins its transit of your home and family sector today, dear Taurus, and this means you’re pouring more energy into your personal life until July 10th. This influence stirs your desire to do something about difficult conditions or relationships and fix, improve, and otherwise renovate your life from the ground up, especially your domestic world. While you can experience variable energy and motivation levels in the weeks ahead, it’s an excellent time for taking care of household and family matters. Do watch for bottling up anger — you are protective of others and yourself but perhaps a little too defensive. Today’s Mars-Pluto opposition can highlight a struggle between personal and professional responsibilities. Working on finding a better balance will be particularly helpful. Learning about your more profound needs, desires, and ambitions can help clarify your long-term and career goals. Nevertheless, power struggles within the family circle or buried problems can emerge, and it can be difficult to relinquish control even if you know it’s for the best. Work or family matters can be heated and serve to rile you up. You may recognize you’ve been clinging too tightly to your objectives, and relaxing them just a little may help bring you back to a better work-life balance.
GeminiMars begins its transit of your communications sector today, dear Gemini, and will transit here until July 10th. During this cycle, you can enjoy the strong motivation to learn something new, or this can be a particularly busy time in your neighborhood or your daily life. You can get quite fired up over ideas and opinions during this seven-week transit. It can also be a time for mustering up the courage to contact someone you’ve been out of touch with. Watch for hasty communications, and instead try to pour your energy into intellectual tasks since you can get a whole lot done now–you’re likely to be working with much passion and vigor, whether it’s on actual work or your favorite projects. Today, differences in opinions can be loaded as they may represent something else altogether. In fact, they may be more about feeling accepted and respected. A Mars-Pluto opposition can trigger insecurities or fears about losing someone’s admiration, or it pulls up fears of making changes. Holding onto an idea too tightly will prevent you from going forward, growing, and moving on. If someone can’t seem to see what you’re seeing, avoid pushing the matter. However, a confrontation may force the issue if you need to get something out of your system. The best thing you can do for yourself today is to aim to let something go or to release it and get over a hump, as resentment can rob you of essential commodities–happiness and energy!
CancerMars leaves your sign today, not to return until September 2024, dear Cancer, and now begins its transit of your resources sector. Now that you’re no longer hosting active, aggressive Mars in your sign, you’re likely to find life becomes quieter. You might gain the motivation to build and develop something important to you, such as a business, pet project, bank account, or relationship during this transit that lasts until July 10th. With less focus on personality development, you’re enjoying what you have and building upon your resources at a comfortable pace. Today, Mars opposes Pluto, and it can create a real stir! People can be defensive, trying to prove themselves. Arguments over ownership, money, core values, or boundaries can emerge. Money or support problems that may have been weighing you down could reach a turning point, but conflicts over money or possessions may disguise deeper issues. If you’ve been feeling undervalued, frustrations can come to a head now. Keep in mind that compromise would be ideal, but getting there involves giving a little, so be willing if the other side is ready to meet you halfway.
LeoMars moves into your sign today, dear Leo, and brings its fiery assertiveness, courage, initiative, and energy to your personality until July 10th. This transit can stir strong desires to begin new projects or to present yourself in bolder, more dynamic ways. You have more energy during this cycle, sometimes to the point of excess, and it’s a good idea to find ways to manage it to your advantage. Pace yourself, but take action on things that matter to you most. Mars opposes Pluto today, creating an immediate stir! Buried frustrations may erupt or come to a head, particularly about your independence or freedom. You have no patience for being controlled, manipulated, or coerced. It can be tricky, but bringing something that seems dark into the light may very well be a surprising relief. Touchiness is likely, but it can be a highly revealing time if you’re willing to get through it and learn something in the process.
VirgoMars begins its transit of your privacy and soul sector today, dear Virgo. Until July 10th, you’re in particular need of extra rest along with activities that aid healing and energy replenishment. You’re motivated to get closure on a matter or deal with problems that have been left outstanding or unresolved in the past, once and for all! Sometimes with this transit, you feel deflated or under the weather if you don’t acknowledge your need for more rest. Instead, you might be putting a particular venture to rest or wrapping up a project, and you need to reorient yourself. It may be beneficial for you to do some soul-searching or relaxing as you consider new directions for the future. Today, there is a competitive feel to the day, and it doesn’t always feel healthy! Stubbornness is likely to frustrate, and ego wars or power contests can be part of the picture. Minor issues can irritate you more than usual, but the real problems likely run deeper. Keep in mind that confrontations can be messier than usual today. A Mars-Pluto transit has a way of bringing buried matters out into the open. It would help if you had a chance to think and rest outside the routine, but strong ambitions can make it hard to unwind. Avoid allowing over-attachment to your methods to hijack your day. Instead, make plans to improve your routines and workload so that you have the chance to unplug and shut things off from time to time.
LibraMars leaves your solar tenth house and heads into harmony with your sign today, dear Libra, easing some pressures. Until July 10th, Mars boosts your energy, courage, and assertiveness with friends and your social life. You could be busy with activities or teamwork, and possibly the demands of others in your life. If there are some competitive feelings with associates or peers during this period, they could help boost your motivation to improve your life. You’re likely to come up with exciting plans for your future during this cycle, and something might inspire you to work toward a specific goal or dream. There can be misunderstandings and misgivings today due to an opposition between Mars and Pluto. However, if you aim to learn from what emerges now, these things can ultimately improve understanding. If you’re holding onto something so tightly that it can’t breathe, remind yourself that this can only serve to keep you stagnant and stuck. The goal now should be to empower yourself. Insecurities or fear could be driving someone’s desire to control. You don’t need to prove yourself in the face of unreasonable demands–calm reassurance is best. A romantic relationship or feelings and concerns about someone can become heated today, but it’s all very complicated! You may need to unpack things and explore your emotions before you get to the heart of a matter.
ScorpioMars moves into your career and reputation sector today, dear Scorpio, and will bring high energy and ambition, as well as motivation and competitive feelings, to your world until July 10th. Life path goals, your public life, responsibilities, performance, business affairs, and career are the subjects of this sector of your solar chart, and these matters can awaken, enliven, and animate, assuming far more importance in your life than usual during this cycle. You can be motivated to excel, improve, and advance in the coming weeks. It can seem that everyone wants their way, and few are conceding today, leading to rather tense scenarios. Disputes today tend to be about who has the upper hand. Don’t allow someone to try to control or manipulate you, but know how to approach the situation with care. With Mars opposite Pluto today, fears of being blindsided can drive decisions. Buried frustrations that have been simmering just below the surface can emerge. Aim to unload rather than dig in your heels and resist learning and growing.
SagittariusMars moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and will bring smoother energy to your pursuits until July 10th. Whether obstacles are fewer or they seem less relevant, you have an easier time pursuing your desires in the seven weeks ahead. You’re more motivated, enthusiastic, positive, and energized, gravitating to new physical or mental challenges during this Mars cycle. You may take up a new (or renewed) interest, self-publish, or pursue a course of study. Debates can be lively and passionate at this time. A Mars-Pluto opposition today can aggravate you or pull up buried problems, however. Fear of change or being in the dark on a matter is likely at the root of disagreements or tensions. Conversations or exposure to different or new ideas, opinions, and methods challenge you to grow–they help you reframe your thinking rather than hold onto an idea or belief for dear life. When it’s this easy for people to touch upon your sore spots, you’ll find it just as easy to learn about your vulnerabilities and deeper desires. There is confrontational energy with us that can lead to a significant release, but try to be mindful of what you say and how you say it for the best results today.
CapricornMars begins heating up your intimacy sector today, dear Capricorn. Until July 10th, this transit encourages you to seek deeper connections, whether with a project, a person, or yourself! You can uncover valuable information about your past, and your ability to manage stress and pressure increases, even if you feel more sensitive, perhaps as a defense mechanism. You’re also more willing and courageous than usual to dig deep and acknowledge your innermost desires. If you’ve been having issues with power dynamics and sharing in a relationship, now is the time to pull them out of hiding and tackle them directly. It can also be a time for pursuing a loan or support if needed. You can use this period for taking actions that empower you, such as quitting bad habits or cutting out addictions. You are learning that power is not about having the upper hand but about managing your own energy effectively. Today can be tense in spots, however, as Mars opposes Pluto. Releasing yourself from excessive attachments can figure strongly and can be rewarding, although challenging at the same time. Ownership or sharing of power and duties can lead to a tug of war situation with no winners. Money, resources, and relationships can be more sensitive to ups and downs. Under tense aspects, it’s all too easy to choose poorly, and it makes sense to second-guess things or wait out bigger decisions.
AquariusWith Mars moving into your opposite sign today, dear Aquarius, the courageous, energetic, and active qualities of Mars are directed or applied to partnerships, relationships, and teamwork until July 10th. This transit can enliven partnerships or interactions with others. It can be a time for clearing the air. It becomes difficult to ignore relationship problems or stagnation in a key relationship, or this is a time when important players in your life are more assertive or actively involved in your life. There can be a competitive feel to relationships, but this may also be a time when a special person in your life helps you find your courage or confidence. Mars very quickly opposes Pluto in your sign, bringing some tension today before moving on with less interference. Relationship dynamics can be complex as buried issues emerge. Aim to focus on growth for the best results.
PiscesMars moves into your work and health sector today, animating your daily life until July 10th, dear Pisces. You’re particularly motivated to get on top of your work, routines, and health in the weeks ahead. You might pour more energy into organizing your space, pursuing fitness or other health goals, and providing services or doing your work during this cycle. Watch for pushing yourself too hard in these areas, but enjoy the rush of enthusiasm to take better care of yourself. Be sure to ease rather than rush into things. Mars energy is enthusiastic but also competitive. Today, a Mars-Pluto opposition can stir up tension, perhaps triggering fears of being out of the loop. Frustrations about schedules, duties, obligations, and lack of time to yourself can reach a head. It’s all too easy to end up dwelling on old hurts, and it’s best not to take this too far. Aim to learn from what seems to irritate you today and work on a plan to tackle it gradually rather than succumb to pressures to deal with things immediately. Long-term problems often require long-term solutions! Be open to learning about your hidden desires if jealousies emerge.
