Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesPleasing energy connects communications and learning with creativity in your life today, dear Aries, and the urge to get something done is with you. You might receive news that opens up doors for you, enjoy some affectionate communications or an innovative learning experience, or you could make some exciting new contacts. As the day advances, while you’re more actively pursuing those things that make you feel good and bring you joy, you may want to watch that you don’t try to push something too fast or take on so much that you burn out before you really get going. Doing your best to tame impulses to overshoot, promise too much, or defend something too vigorously can be the key to success. Money and love don’t mix well today. While it’s best to aim for some moderation, don’t discount new ideas for expressing yourself or creating something beautiful, as you are in an especially creative mood.
TaurusYou are enthusiastic and somewhat competitive today, dear Taurus. Don’t discount a bit of a self-centered streak early today–it’s beneficial if it’s a healthy dose of me-focus. Home life can be pleasingly animated. There can be a strong urge to handle problem areas in and around the home or with family, and the chances of making some super improvements are high. You can experience a rather sudden urge to change or improve your life today, finding it difficult to tolerate problem areas. As the day advances, avoid putting too much pressure on yourself to do everything at once. Consider whether your impulses come from a real need and not just boredom. Plans that have been well thought out can push forward, but gambles are unlikely to fare well today with a Mars-Jupiter aspect in play, leading to the overestimation of what’s reasonably possible. If the stakes are high, wait for a clearer day. Dream big, but keep your feet on the ground.
GeminiThere is more bravery or courage in your actions now, dear Gemini, and perhaps in your communications, especially if you’re offering information about yourself. It’s a good time for positive feedback. You can be acting more decisively, and you’re more responsive. Others especially enjoy your company and input. As the day advances, with Mars and Jupiter at odds, it can be a time of great enthusiasm, strong drives, and passionate feelings, but also of excess. You can experience a real surge of motivation to resume or take on new projects. Your interests are plenty, but your time is limited! Watch for putting so much pressure on yourself to get something done that you end up impatient and frustrated. Expecting instant results can bring you down and take energy away from what you’re doing. Enjoy the day’s blast of power for moving forward, but tame expectations, or look for ways to appreciate the positive things happening now instead of seeking to double your winnings.
CancerYou’re likely to enjoy the new ideas flooding in today, dear Cancer. You can feel a strong urge to do something out of the ordinary. You’re inclined to get a lot done, even if this mostly happens behind the scenes. Your confidence is strong, and your willpower matches. You can feel just enough competitiveness to motivate you and get you places. However, as the day advances, you have some tendency to overdo or overshoot. While the courage and confidence to get things going are great, you should watch for decisions that come from restlessness rather than need. You might also want to tame impulses to spend too much, too soon, or frivolously. A Mars-Jupiter square could be about defending yourself if others are not showing their respect. Emotional longings can be in focus but also more easily understood.
LeoYou can feel a strong desire to make changes or improvements to your life, dear Leo, particularly related to your happiness goals and social affairs. You may be inspired to move forward on a personal goal, dream, or plan, or you could make a sudden connection with someone that feels right. There is some inclination to impulsiveness with Mars in your sign now, but if you are listening to gut instincts rather than merely reacting to people around you, then you’re in good form. Later today, Mars and Jupiter head toward a square, and a lot of energy is generated, particularly of the courageous variety! However, there is also a tendency to blow this luck by pushing too far with it. Going over the top can be an agitating factor, potentially ruining a good thing. If you feel unsatisfied, ask yourself if you truly need to push further. Impatience can lead to getting yourself in over your head. Something can be exaggerated today, particularly with your reputation or career. Any activity that ties you to a desk, that seems stifling or limiting, or that feels lifeless and dull will have you itching to escape, so plan accordingly.
VirgoWith today’s transits, you want to handle problems immediately rather than let them fester or grow, dear Virgo. There can be great enthusiasm and big, beautiful feelings and passions stirred now. Still, there is also a real tendency to overlook the beauty of the moment in search of even greener pastures. Aim to capture and enjoy an excellent opportunity without going too far with it. Plans made now may not work out later if you’re overshooting. Promises may be well-intentioned but could be given in the heat of the moment or based on magnified feelings. Underlying tension and discomfort with the status quo can lead to unnecessary arguments or rash decisions. Take a deep breath, and wait until a better day to commit yourself to something big. It’s best to channel your energy into something you love doing.
LibraMaking changes comes instinctively today, dear Libra. Accepting new ideas and exploring different topics come naturally. Passions rise, and enthusiasm is strong. It’s a fine time to pair up with others to get something done or answer your own call to learn or experience something new. As the day advances, there can be some tension if you are trying to push a matter that is better left alone for the time being. Your focus can be on how you think things should be, and you can be impatient for this ideal to materialize quickly. Decisions involving or made with friends can be too hasty. Do your best to tame a tendency to go too far. If dissatisfaction leads to new developments and improvements or the courage to resolve a problem, you might decide to ride on this energy and make it work for you.
ScorpioDrawing upon resources you never knew you had can be in focus and rewarding, dear Scorpio. It’s an active time for professional matters, but you may need to tone down your manner if you know you’re right and others are not yet seeing it! Indeed, your natural enthusiasm is probably enough to sell a good idea or plan. As the day advances, you can be more sensitive to feeling confined or limited, especially related to a career, duty, or reputation matter. While you’re inclined to jump to a decision, more research may be necessary! There can be extenuating circumstances that will reveal themselves later, so it’s best to reserve judgment. Enthusiasm for reaching your goals skyrockets, but you may need to watch for a tendency to overshoot. Transits tend to stir big feelings but also some impatience. It’s best to tap into the day’s energies to dream up new ideas and possibilities, but avoid pushing a matter to achieve instant results. A truly good plan will still look good tomorrow.
SagittariusYou may be seeking to feel more vital, alive, and vibrant through other people or relationships, dear Sagittarius. Others can inspire you to act confidently or get moving on a matter. While you’re feeling motivated, you are inclined to go into overdrive as the day advances and we move toward a Mars-Jupiter square. Your mind is open to big ideas and possibilities. It may be best to consider making changes and improvements but not to rush into them. Patience will help prevent disorganization. Energy runs high, but it’s a little unstable. Frustration with routine matters can be problematic since your sights are set very high. Aim to tap into the enthusiasm to improve and grow but keep your feet on the ground.
CapricornYou don’t want to be constrained or limited, dear Capricorn, and there can be a stronger desire to take action on matters you’ve put to the side. There can be excellent opportunities to make important contacts through work or the pursuit of your health or daily routines, and you’re in a strong position to solve problems and cross off items on your to-do list. As the day advances, tensions stem from an inclination to take on too much, too fast. Excess can be a problem, especially with romance or entertainment as Mars moves toward a square with Jupiter in your joy and leisure sector. You want to grow, but it’s best to remind yourself that you can’t afford to take on everything at once. Avoid making big promises until you’ve thought things through since today’s enthusiasm and optimism could lead you to misjudge how much you will be able to do later. However, you can be very spirited and dream up possibilities that you might overlook on a regular day.
AquariusYou are enthusiastic and ready to make changes, dear Aquarius, particularly on creative levels and regarding your relationships. There can be nice developments with creativity, romance, or hobbies. You might make connections that advance your personal interests, especially the more heartfelt pursuits. As the day advances, a Mars-Jupiter square comes into play, which can generate some enthusiasm but also a tendency to push your luck! A happy development may lead you to want more. This attitude can encourage you to grow and improve, but if overdone, you might pass over the good things and forget to appreciate them. As such, promises made to you today can be difficult for people to keep down the road. Watch for hasty behavior, especially with family, a partner, and those closest to you. There could be unnecessary pressure on you to make a decision. Positively, however, you can feel a rush of new energy and courage to handle a long-standing problem. If you can tap into this influence’s enthusiasm and resist going over the top with it, you’re in a good place.
PiscesYou’re in the mood to make changes and improve things today, dear Pisces. You might decide to rearrange your living setup or reorganize your work or work environment. You are less dependent on others’ approval and a little bolder and more outgoing. While today is strong for enthusiasm and awareness of your feelings, it may be best to watch for impulsiveness. A Mars-Jupiter square is coming into play, and the inclination is to go over the top. This influence feels lucky but tends to overshoot! You may get the courage to push a matter you’ve let slide, so don’t discount all impulses now. Sometimes we do need a push to make a meaningful change. With this aspect, however, you may feel you can do more than is possible, so watch that you don’t overload with tasks or obligations. You may be excited about improving and taking on new interests or projects, but do so carefully and considerately for best results.
