Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith today’s Sun-Jupiter square, overoptimism can leave you vulnerable to self-deception, dear Aries. Watch for a tendency to overlook important details in your haste. You may swing from wanting extra emotional space and wanting to share more of yourself. When serving and helping others, avoid taking on too much. It’s a question of time and energy — you need to reserve some of it to take better care of yourself. Get all the facts before you jump into something new or a promise. If you’ve become a little too short-sighted recently due to a hectic schedule, you’ll feel the need to broaden your horizons.
TaurusA friend or even ideas can promise a little too much than they can reasonably deliver today, dear Taurus. A project or plan can now show signs of weakness, or some waning motivation can temporarily pull you down. Hold on to your money and wait for a day when you see things more clearly to make a big purchase. The Sun clashes with Jupiter in your social sector, producing the feeling of being torn between wanting to do something different and exciting and preferring to stay put and stick with what you already know. The answer to this is not to push yourself harder or to take on more endeavors, but to work on problem areas and make improvements.
GeminiIt’s a good time to dream and think big, but overdoing things is a tendency and not very productive, dear Gemini. If you push something, you’ll be exhausted when authentic opportunities present themselves. The Sun in your sign encourages a personal focus and efforts toward self-improvement, while Jupiter is pushing performance, ambition, or career and accomplishment. You want to do both well, but something has to give! There is a tendency to blow things out of proportion or hitch your horse to the wrong wagon. You might reassess a recent business or professional endeavor, and it’s best to aim to make changes that get your expectations down to earth before going forward. Avoid investing too much of yourself or your hopes into ideas and feelings that may not be realistic.
CancerToday’s Sun-Jupiter aspect can bring on a wave of optimism, but the energy is unstable, dear Cancer, and it’s too easy to overshoot. Part of you can be very restless and hungry to experience something different, but you could be without a plan or definite direction. Guilt could be holding you back from doing your own thing, or you could feel a little insecure or unsure of yourself, and it’s temporary. In truth, you may not have all the information necessary to solve a problem, and it’s better to wait things out. Don’t push decision-making but do push the usual boundaries of your imagination. It’s a good idea to aim to be balanced and discreet since things can quickly run away from you otherwise.
LeoThere can be some pressure on you from friends or groups today, dear Leo. Dissatisfaction with routines or your current state of affairs can be more prominent than usual with friction between your planetary ruler, the Sun, and Jupiter. Difficulties balancing your intimate life and your social life could reach frustrating levels. If you’ve been expecting more from an endeavor or relationship, this can be a time when you question your satisfaction levels. Some waning enthusiasm is natural and temporary. While thinking in big terms is acceptable, today’s energies tend us toward immoderate behavior. Watch for overshooting. It might seem like a quick fix to overdo or overcommit, but it’s likely to cause more significant problems. As the day progresses, you’re more inclined to let go of tension, and conversations can help to inspire you.
VirgoWith a square occurring between the Sun and Jupiter today, dear Virgo, it can be difficult to fulfill your desires or feel the power of motivation. Do your best not to skip steps because you’re anxious to get the ball rolling. Pushing too hard towards a goal can wear you down or overwhelm you, which is counterproductive. Aim to pace yourself, which is admittedly far more manageable as the day advances. Opening your mind to new possibilities and ideas is worthwhile, but locking something down is probably not wise. You can swing from optimism to pessimism, and the truth lies somewhere in between. Keep things as real as possible, and while you should listen to others’ points of view, don’t be swayed by promises made now, as they may be hard to keep.
LibraYou can be feeling a bit of pressure or a sense that you don’t have the time or energy to accomplish your larger goals today, dear Libra. Avoid skipping essential steps to reach an ambition, and consider pacing yourself instead. Becoming overwhelmed by things to do will not help you achieve more, and right now, the desire for some freedom from restrictions and routines is strong. Avoid taking on more tasks as they will only add to your pile of worries. As the day advances, emotions build. You can have fabulous business ideas now, but they may not yet hold a lot of weight. Don’t discard them, but do aim to fill in the details later. Remind yourself that going bigger isn’t necessarily better.
ScorpioThere’s some tendency to swing from a generous mood to a more serious frame of mind today, dear Scorpio. You might also swing from wanting more or less of a situation or person. Jupiter encourages you to take a risk with your heart or with your creativity, while the Sun stimulates a desire for deeper bonds and connections, and this mini struggle can come to a head now. These things seem difficult to integrate. However, this conflict can also encourage creative solutions. Watch that you don’t take risks with money, as instincts for financial matters may be out of step temporarily. Uncertainty about how to proceed in a relationship or about someone’s feelings for you can be an issue. Consider that expecting too much may pose a challenge today.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Jupiter square energizes your sectors of home, family, and partnerships, dear Sagittarius, and any or all of these things can place demands on you. Restlessness is possible if you feel overwhelmed with the things you want to do. You have a stronger need for security and a sense of belonging these days, but it’s important to take independent steps to achieve these rather than waiting for others to fill these needs. Going overboard is a potential problem, especially if you try to keep the peace by pleasing everyone, but it’s a taller order than you first think. Promises made today may be well-intentioned but may very well go unfulfilled.
CapricornA Sun-Jupiter square today might bring a building conflict to a head, particularly if you have a little too much going on in your life right now, dear Capricorn. The Sun in your work and health sector encourages you to improve your routine game. On the other hand, Jupiter in your communications sector is curious and hungry to learn and pursue more casual interests. A checkpoint on a project can reveal you’re falling behind, and if so, then it’s time to remind yourself of motivators and to adjust expectations to more realistic levels. There could be some moodiness if you haven’t accomplished all you wanted to do, but a new plan of action can emerge that suits you well. Try not to move forward on a new idea right now, at least not too quickly, and avoid taking on too much in an effort to catch up or get somewhere fast. Spreading yourself out too thin will not lead to success.
AquariusThe temptation to do more than is reasonable or possible is strong today, dear Aquarius. However, spreading yourself too thin can be quite unsatisfying and perhaps exhausting. Today’s energies are optimistic, but we can relatively easily go a little too far with our expectations or go over the top. If you’re investing too heavily in something or investing in the wrong things, ups and downs are possible, but it’s also a great time for seeing where you’ve been pushing too hard. Jupiter encourages you to enjoy comforts while the Sun wants you to move out of your comfort zone to find new pleasures and channels for expression. Respecting your limits and avoiding promises and inflated expectations can help tremendously now.
PiscesToday’s Sun-Jupiter square can leave you feeling overtaxed or in limbo, dear Pisces. It’s temporary but can also be an essential checkpoint. You might experience a conflict between nurturing your strong need for security and safety and your similarly big desire for personal space and a sense of autonomy. While you can imagine all sorts of things you’d like to accomplish, part of you is holding back, or the demands of home and family are keeping you feeling tied down. Consider ways to manage your expectations, strike a compromise, and find a better balance. Simplifying or giving a little in both areas of life will serve you best in the long run.
