Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s transits favor a strategic approach, dear Aries. You might decide to take charge of a private, past, or health matter now as you instinctively zero in on your priorities. Good energy is with you for tackling long-standing problems or work. Working anonymously or from behind the scenes can prove beneficial. It’s a powerful time for resolving old issues that have been nagging you in recent months, and you can feel empowered, indeed, as you put something behind you once and for all. Mercury, still retrograde, heads back into your finance sector, where it will stay until June 13th, although it will only be retrograde until June 3rd. It’s time to review financial matters! It’s less than ideal for entirely new or large purchases since you don’t have all the information you need to make the best choices. During this cycle, you may be dealing with lost or misplaced possessions, facing delays, or reconsidering a purchase or business decision. You’ll be looking at things from a new or different perspective, which can lead to new conclusions. From June 3rd onward, clarity comes, and blanks fill in, slowly but surely. Any delays faced until then can give you the chance to reconsider your approach.
TaurusGood energy is with you for networking and feeling that you are part of a team today, dear Taurus. Group work can be exceptionally beneficial, or a friend can build your confidence and convince you to pursue your goals and desires. Partnerships are also improving, and you can feel wonderful and reinforced as you count on someone and they pull through for you. Instead, someone might build your confidence or convince you to pursue your goals and desires. Also today, Mercury moves back into your sign, where it will spend the rest of its retrograde until June 3rd. Mercury will continue to transit your sign until June 13th, but some personal plans may stall or regress while it’s still retrograde until June 3rd. It’s time to review rather than draw important conclusions or finalize agreements. Allow yourself room to think and decide rather than pressure yourself to draw quick conclusions.
GeminiWith research and analysis, you can solve a complex problem today, dear Gemini, as Mars and Pluto harmonize. It’s an excellent time for strategy, well-considered moves, and happy advances. You’re gaining an edge by waiting for the right moment or passing on something and waiting for something better. Things that have been written off, forgotten about, or set aside may now be of great use to you. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves out of your sign and back into your privacy sector. You can be a little more mysterious or perhaps misunderstood until June 3rd. Decision-making can be more challenging than usual as you consider different possibilities or wait for more information. Your mind can frequently turn back to the same problem. Instead of sweeping things under the carpet, you approach your feelings from an entirely new angle. Some of the decisions made and projects started in recent weeks can come up for review now. It may not be until after June 13th, when Mercury moves back into your sign, that you feel equipped to make a big decision, but more clarity is likely from June 3rd forward.
CancerThere are benefits to working with someone today, dear Cancer. You may be teaming up with a significant other to achieve a goal with great success. Your instincts are excellent for putting your energy into activities that will likely thrive and leave you feeling accomplished or empowered. With a Mars-Pluto aspect in play, you can more readily tap into patience. Partnerships are a little more reinforcing. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into your friends and dreams sector, emphasizing your communications with associates, groups, and friends until June 13th. It’s also a time to hatch ideas for your future happiness, but you may be dealing with missing information or fuzzy thinking. You may be waiting for word on a matter. Returning to past issues with a friend or focusing on a past friendship can figure strongly until June 3rd. Some of the seeds you recently planted concerning long-term goals might need review or revision. While it can be rather annoying, it will likely serve you better since you get a second chance to get things right.
LeoToday’s Mars-Pluto aspect can point to fruitful work and efforts, dear Leo. You can turn a negative situation into a positive quite expertly now. You may be able to break down a problem into parts and analyze it until you find a solution, and you’re determined! You are willing to make substantial changes and put the necessary effort into improvements. It’s satisfying to be productive today, and it can also be a fine time for bonding with a significant someone. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into your public and professional sector. Until June 3rd, watch that you don’t unwittingly misrepresent yourself with what or how you communicate. Double-check your facts before jumping to conclusions. It’s a good time for review but not the best period for clear-cut answers. You might come up with business ideas that are a little outside the box but workable. If there are delays, you get the chance to see a matter in a different light. After June 3rd, you’ll feel better equipped with the information you need to move things forward.
VirgoWith today’s Mars-Pluto transit, you’re in a focused and deliberate frame of mind, dear Virgo. There can also be very productive activities with a significant person in your life. You seek more intensity and passion in a relationship or project, and you’re likely to find it now. It’s also a time when you can become pleasantly carried away with, or absorbed in, a project or even a person. A bit of strategy goes a long way. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into your solar ninth house. Mercury remains retrograde until June 3rd, and you’re likely to be going over recent plans or revisiting old decisions. Check your facts, as the information you receive may not be complete.
LibraMotivated by today’s Mars-Pluto aspect, you can barrel through tasks that usually would take much longer to complete, dear Libra. Concentration and commitment are the keys. It’s a great time to get ahead on work or health routines and domestic activities or to gain an edge in these areas of your life. With your heart engaged, you can move mountains today. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into your intimacy sector. While Mercury is still retrograde until June 3rd, you’re likely to go over financials or intimate conversations you thought were behind you. Aim to look at problems, particularly those revolving around shared finances, debts, and balance of power in a relationship, from a new angle or perspective. If they’re re-emerging, then they need to be put to rest in a new or different way. You’ll be in a better place for making final agreements or making refinements to the details after June 3rd.
ScorpioMars and Pluto form a harmonious aspect today, dear Scorpio, and your confidence builds. Others seem more dependable than usual, and your own determination increases. Channeling your energy into creative or productive pursuits is most successful. It can be a great time to begin a new project or apply yourself to works in progress. To boot, you have more influence and persuasive power than usual. There’s more punch to your words, creations, and personal impact, and others appreciate your particular brand of energy today. Also today, retrograde Mercury retreats into your partnership sector, and a relationship matter that was left up in the air may emerge for handling in the coming weeks. It’s not the time for communications to go over precisely as intended while Mercury continues to retrograde here until June 3rd. Delays may ultimately help you to understand your situation better, however. They can also lead to creative and new ways of expressing yourself that work in your favor. A little skepticism at the moment can’t hurt, as all is not as it seems.
SagittariusToday’s Mars-Pluto aspect is good for strategy and patience, dear Sagittarius. It can motivate you to renovate or reorganize your space, and you can get a real sense of how you can better use your resources. You’re using new energy on old issues, and quite successfully. This transit might also stir romantic feelings, and while complicated, it’s likely to be pleasantly complex. Today is also good for budgeting and taking steps to make yourself more secure. Retrograde Mercury retreats into your work and health sector today, and while Mercury will stay in this sector until June 13th, it’s only retrograde until June 3rd. It can be challenging to see or learn all the facts about work or health matters. As a result, revisions may be necessary. There may be the need to review, redo, or double-check your work until June 3rd. You might tackle a work problem from an entirely new angle or see a project in a new light. Delays now can give you the chance to reconsider things to your benefit.
CapricornMotivation levels are good today, dear Capricorn, so you may want to take on projects that require concentration or competitive activities to take full advantage. You can be pleasantly focused on your learning and researching activities, personal interests, and projects. It’s a strong time for personal influence, impact, and magnetism. Also today, retrograde Mercury moves back into your sector of romance, creativity, and joy. Mercury will remain here until June 13th but will end its retrograde cycle sooner than that, on June 3rd. Communication is not likely to be straightforward in these life departments. However, you stand to learn much from viewing and approaching matters differently, perhaps redoing some things and getting it better this time around. You might revisit old conversations or decisions.
AquariusWith today’s Mars-Pluto transit, dear Aquarius, focused energy and determination can help you turn around a financial or emotional matter. It’s a great time for getting rid of excess baggage in your life, as you have a more vital ability to see what needs to be left behind. You have good insight into what is excessive or weighing you down, making it easier to lighten your load. You’re also more able to see value in what you already have rather than reaching for something new. Sometimes advantages come from what you pass over! Satisfaction comes from a job well done today, and using some strategy can be beneficial. As well, retrograde Mercury heads back into your home and family sector today. During this cycle that lasts until June 13th, Mercury stirs your desire to make contact and communicate with family members or organize your domestic life. Communication with family may not be as straightforward as you’d like, or there can be some level of chaos or mechanical problems around the home that require your attention until June 3rd. Past issues can resurface for review, and you may be looking at a decision made several weeks ago in a new way. After that date, matters unblock and clear, and your understanding of personal and domestic issues clarify. You get the opportunity to strengthen, redo, or rethink some issues.
PiscesYour display of strength of character can open up opportunities for you today, dear Pisces, as others see you as remarkably competent and uniquely special. Your energy is appreciated! You’re also quite magnetic. Your desire to make things happen has been active in recent weeks with Mars in your sign, and now you benefit from the support of Pluto to make positive changes and improvements. There is also good energy for you to come to the aid of a friend today. You may gain an edge in a group, team, or with associates. It’s a great time for making the most of a situation. Also today, Mercury, still retrograde, moves back into your communications sector. Until June 3rd, communications are unlikely to be straightforward, and your best bet may be to take a break from your routine and do things just a little differently. Learning, transportation, and essential communications can involve some backtracking or delays. You may be looking back at old projects and finding interesting information that helps you in the present. Be flexible and vigilant with marking important appointments and errands on your calendar, but look at recent decisions in new ways for the best results now. After June 3rd, information unclogs. Mercury will continue to transit your solar third house until June 13th, and personal interests are a real draw.
