Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour appeal is strong today, dear Aries. Avoid giving in to impulses and sudden desires, but do treat yourself to some form of light indulgence or extravagance, something that you won’t later regret. Talking things through is helpful, and you’ll find others quite supportive. Allowing and exercising more freedom in your relationships is helpful now. Working from or on the home can be successful. It can be a time to do a great balancing act between your personal and private lives or creatively combine them. Saturn stations and turns retrograde until October 10th, pointing to a shift in perspective over the coming months, particularly related to your friendships, networking, and long-term happiness goals. A review of career or life path goals might also be in store. It’s important to recognize that you have enough time to resolve problems and that efforts to build and restructure are beneficial for you in the long run. Increases or expansion may lead to stress rather than joy right now, so do your best to tone things down and get what you have in place in better order. Focusing on current projects can be rewarding.
TaurusPractical matters can thrive today, dear Taurus. There can be good news or support on the level of health and wellness. People are drawn to you today — you have a little extra oomph as your ruler, Venus, forms a parallel with Mars. It’s a good time for creative thinking, particularly related to finances. Saturn begins its yearly retrograde cycle today, and until October 10th, prompts you to do some sorting or reviewing of current goals and projects or endeavors. You’re likely to feel a shift in perspective about your long-term goals, responsibilities, career, or life path. It’s a time to simplify rather than expand or increase in your career and with your reputation, as development or expansion can bring about undue stress. However, you’re in excellent shape for reviewing these issues and building upon current projects already in place or returning to unfinished endeavors. As well, consider reviving old studies or streamlining your approach to learning.
GeminiThe day is strong for connecting and bonding with others, dear Gemini. Venus in your sign forms a parallel with Mars, boosting your personal appeal and charm. It’s a good time for personal attraction and also positive for possible gifts or windfalls. However, Saturn reaches its station as it turns retrograde today, and you’re encouraged to slow down to consider your more extensive plans and goals. Saturn will remain in its yearly retrograde cycle, this time until October 10th, and there can be a shift in your perspective of your responsibilities. This shift might feel heavy initially, and your responsibilities seem to weigh you down, but this feeling will subside. Plans or projects may stall, or you question your commitment to some of them, perhaps due to altered motivation levels or realistic assessments of the limits of time and energy. The months ahead are excellent for editing or building upon projects already in place and less ideal for brand-new major or ambitious plans. Simplifying, building, structuring, and stabilizing efforts produce the best results at this time.
CancerThere is good energy with you for personal and family matters, dear Cancer. Perhaps a new freedom is afforded you that feels good. A strong attraction is possible now. Still, Saturn’s station today encourages you to slow down and think about your priorities. People are especially prone to making errors of judgment now until they grow accustomed to the shift. Saturn will be retrograde until October 10th, prompting a strong period for review. While it can cast a heavy note this week, responsibilities are unlikely to increase at this time — they may only feel weightier temporarily. Areas of your life most affected by this shift in perspective are debts, support, emotional health, and your close relationships. You might need to reassess how much time and energy you can afford to invest in these matters, or you may be dealing with delays or refinements of plans. Once you begin to recognize the need for restructuring, simplifying, and stabilizing your life, you’ll have a stronger sense of the benefits of this retrograde cycle.
LeoThere is some pleasing, freeing energy available to you today, dear Leo, even with Saturn’s station. Helping others can be gratifying, as you can feel especially good about responding to others’ needs and wants and doing what you can to support them. There can be new interests or a reawakening of interests experienced now. If you can tame impatience, this can be an excellent time for personal appeal and a boost in a relationship. Saturn is stationing as it turns retrograde, and because we’re not used to this heavy energy, we could feel weighed down or disoriented temporarily. It’s best to take the time to think about your priorities, particularly related to partnerships and significant people in your life. Saturn will remain retrograde until October 10th. This cycle is an important one for changing your perspective about your responsibilities, reviewing, and editing endeavors or goals already in place. The key to working with it to your advantage is to remind yourself of the work you need to do to stabilize critical areas of your life, especially your relationships, work, and health, aiming to connect with this purpose. Simplifying rather than taking on additional responsibilities makes the most sense now.
VirgoThere can be an indulgent, passive quality to part of the day, dear Virgo. You can be in the mood to spoil someone you care about. Doing something creative or sharing your ideas and feelings with others can be a strong draw. Still, Saturn stations and turns retrograde today and will move in this apparent backward motion until October 10th. While this and other important shifts occur this week, watch for errors. There may be strained relationships, or the weight of your work or health responsibilities can be heavier just for now. The cycle itself simply points to a shifting perspective on your routines, work, and health or romantic and creative life. It’s a better period for review and reflection than innovation, and while you may encounter some waning motivation or delays in any of these areas, you are in an excellent position to simplify, edit, and build what you already have in place. You might reassess commitments to specific programs, projects, or jobs.
LibraTeaching, authoring, and communications can be especially rewarding now, dear Libra. The day is somewhat more settled than yesterday, although you may not be sure where to direct your energies. You might find it pleasant to talk something through, spend time with others, and learn assorted facts. Personal magnetism is strong, particularly when moving away from your routines and embracing new ideas and possibilities. Saturn stations and turns retrograde today, and it’s best to watch for errors as the shift occurs. Your perspective on commitments related to romance, family, and creativity is likely to shift in the months ahead–until October 10th. This cycle is suitable for reevaluating, consolidating, or rebuilding key areas of your life. Once accustomed to the energy, you’ll find that things even out and are smoother as you give extra consideration to the limits of time and energy. You might return to a previous project and approach it in a new way now, or you might build a work-in-progress. Brand-new major projects may not take off quickly and might only serve to stress you out, as this is a time for conserving energy and simplifying your life, generally speaking. Aim to level things out.
ScorpioThe desire for comfort is very strong today, dear Scorpio. The day is strong for going after what you desire with increased charm and warmth. You are a bit freer with expressing your feelings, and your sense of humor is appealing. Still, Saturn stations and turns retrograde, casting a somewhat serious tone to the day and perhaps the week. This yearly retrograde lasts several months, and this year, it runs until October 10th. There can be opportunities to reassess, edit, and refine your commitments. Home and family matters may need some redoing or experience delays. Thinking about the long-term will help you understand the importance of this period. Reconnecting to the meaning of your commitments or responsibilities is a process, and you’ll get there soon enough. It’s a time for examining your intentions and expectations. Aim to simplify and work on projects already underway so that you can catch your breath.
SagittariusThis can be an excellent day for working with a partner or for gaining some useful feedback, dear Sagittarius. Relations can be spontaneous, freeing, and positive, and interchanges are lively. Still, Saturn begins its yearly retrograde period today and will remain retrograde until October 10th. The shift can lend some heavier or more responsible themes to the day. This cycle ahead of you is an opportunity period for reviewing and reassessing your projects and commitments. Saturn is transiting your sector of communications and transportation, and these areas of life are most affected by the retrograde. However, finances are always ruled by Saturn in your solar chart, and they can play a role as well. This can be a checkpoint moment for certain learning, personal interests, communications, financial, and socializing activities. There can certainly be delays related to these matters, or you might return to an unfinished project rather than take on a new one, which is likely to be the more successful strategy. Simplifying and structuring your life makes sense now. Find ways to reconnect with the purpose or meaning behind the things you’re doing, as this will help you get back on track sooner.
CapricornThere can be a nice sense of freedom or support and nurturing today, dear Capricorn, particularly with your daily affairs or in work environments. New insights or simply a fresh attitude can make life easier with your routines and obligations. Still, Saturn stationing and turning retrograde today seems to want us to slow down. There can be some heaviness when it comes to financial matters today and this week. For best results, aim to sort, organize, and take things a step at a time. Saturn is retrograde until October 10th, and it’s a healthy cycle for reviewing your commitments and responsibilities, mainly related to your finances, business, security, self-worth, natural talents, resources, and comfort levels. There may be delays related to some of these things or a temporary pulling back from specific projects until you come to new conclusions. These shouldn’t be rushed as your perspective shifts this week. In a general sense and particularly related to money matters, it’s a better period for review and reflection than innovation.
AquariusYou might enjoy particularly good feelings of support and freedom on creative levels today, dear Aquarius. Interesting people and ideas seem to be all around you, and people are enjoying your perspective and supporting your views. Still, there is some need to slow down and think about your responsibilities and duties with Saturn stationing and turning retrograde today. Saturn’s retrograde lasts until October 10th, and this year, it lasts entirely in your sign, signaling a period of review. If you feel disconnected from the purpose of the responsibilities brought on by this Saturn transit to your sign, then this retrograde can effectively magnify the heaviness or weight of them, even if they haven’t changed or increased. In other words, your perception of your responsibilities can alter. It’s best to keep in mind the overall purpose of this Saturn transit–that you are learning to rely on yourself and get your life into order. Moderation helps now. Returning to a previous project may be particularly rewarding during this cycle, and is more likely to be successful than a brand-new one.
PiscesThe day brings good energy for emotional issues, dear Pisces. You can feel freer with the release of a problem or more freedoms with family. Activities with friends and lovers can be invigorating, and perhaps some crossover feelings stimulated now. The appeal of entertainment or romantic splurges can be great. Still, Saturn stations and turns retrograde today, and it’s best to take it easy, consider your responsibilities, and work step by step towards your goals. Saturn will continue its retrograde until October 10th, and it’s a natural time for you to review your obligations and reconsider your personal plans. Some level of withdrawal is possible now. You’re learning more deeply about your spiritual goals, tying up loose ends, or finishing long-term projects that have outworn their purpose. Saturn’s station can feel a little heavy as you sense that you’re switching gears this week, but in time, you will adjust to this shift, and you’re likely to welcome this period of review. It’s not an ideal cycle for launches of major long-term projects, but returning to complete old projects can be rewarding.
