Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mars in the sign behind yours since mid-April, dear Aries, you may have felt somewhat withdrawn and even caged in at times. However, Mars has just moved into your sign, and you’re experiencing a reawakening on motivational levels. With Mars, your ruling planet, in your sign until July 5th, you feel very much in your element, comfortable in your own skin, energetic, and confident. However, watch for impatience and brusqueness, as you can easily get carried away. Tackle projects you’ve let slide and direct your considerable energy into new endeavors or reviving works-in-progress. During this cycle, you prefer to do things on your own, be the first, pioneer, and take the lead — and this is an excellent time to do so. Today, you’re exploring different ways of building your sense of value and worthiness. Ultimately, you could be finding ways to increase your income or your earning potential, but at the moment, it’s more about the details and the beginnings of new ideas that will one day blossom. Work at editing and revising can be wonderful now.
TaurusMars has just begun its transit of your solar twelfth house, dear Taurus, where it will stay until July 5th. This house is the sector of processing, privacy, and review, and Mars here is a signal to pay more attention to your need for renewal and replenishment. Energy can be at a lower point, which encourages you to slow down, digest, process, and rest more often. You could temporarily feel less clear or confident about your plans, but this apparent slowdown isn’t a stroke of bad luck. Instead, it’s a time for a spirit boost or recharge: you’re reorienting yourself in preparation for busier, more assertive times. Avoid inclinations towards self-deception or devious tactics to get what you want, as these never truly satisfy. Instead, seek ways to put lingering problems behind you, as it’s a good time to handle matters from the past. Today, you might revisit decisions or opportunities related to travel, education, publishing, and legal issues. Your personal belief system continues to deepen, and it’s a powerful time for reworking and refining old methods and procedures. You could be dealing or meeting with people from your past or with whom you have unfinished business.
GeminiYour desire for the freedom to be yourself and to express yourself authentically is strong in the weeks ahead, dear Gemini, with Mars transiting your solar eleventh house until July 5th. You may feel less limited or restricted than usual and more motivated to pursue your goals and dreams in concrete ways. When Mars makes challenging aspects during this period, there can be conflicts or unrest with friends as you need to address matters that have been brewing. You have more energy and drive than usual to organize projects or take the lead in groups or with friends. It’s a supportive influence that subtly boosts your energy and confidence levels. While there can be some pressures related to friends and personal projects, you’re likely to feel pleasantly busy. This transit fires you up and encourages you in the areas of wishes, hopes, aspirations, ideals, community, friends, and groups. You may take the initiative socially or work energetically towards cherished causes or dreams. Today, your inner world and dreaming mind are vibrant and active. There can be breakthroughs and new thinking or insights, particularly related to past problems that seem to now work in your favor.
CancerWith Mars now in your solar tenth house until July 5th, dear Cancer, you’re in a competitive and energetic cycle for goal-related or professional matters. Conflicts can emerge, but you’re motivated to push yourself to excel and improve, consider your long-term goals, and take charge of your responsibilities. You’re especially eager to perform, pursue your goals, and embrace your ambitions. There can be times during this cycle when you feel you are on the hot seat with more attention coming your way or when you feel challenged, but it can very well motivate you to organize your life to your benefit. Particularly after Mercury ends its retrograde from June 3rd forward, you’ll feel more decisive. Today, new perspectives on the past can lead to visions of your future that motivate and inspire you. It’s a good time to sort out problems and reorganize, particularly related to group efforts, long-term plans, or your social calendar. These efforts can help you going forward, even if it’s hard to see at the moment.
LeoMars is now transiting in harmony with your sign, dear Leo, and it’s a nice energy boost for you. You are turning a corner concerning energy and confidence. You are especially eager and energetic during this cycle that lasts until July 5th. This transit highlights your braver nature, which in turn, attracts more adventure or spirit to your life. This cycle comes after a pretty introspective trend that’s been with you since mid-April, so that your eagerness to experience life without worrying too much about the why, where, and what can be particularly refreshing. Symbolically, you are beginning to move on instead of nursing your feelings and suspicions. Today, you might gain appreciation or recognition for your work or perhaps even projects that you’ve done in the past and forgot about. You can feel almost fearless when it comes to solving problems and addressing troubles today.
VirgoMars has just begun its transit of your solar eighth house, dear Virgo, and it’s an animated period for issues of sharing and intimacy until July 5th. The surface heat in relationships decreases, and you’re now looking at deeper aspects of relating–strategy, power, and self-control. This cycle turns up the heat on the more intricate elements of connecting. It’s also a time for taking charge of what you owe or what you’re owed. The desire to get to the root of problems is with you, and you have much to discover in the weeks ahead. You may put considerable energy into your relationships, a pet project, or self-understanding during this cycle. You are more interested in making internal changes. Today, you can be passionate about an idea, cause, study, or creative project.
LibraMars is now transiting your solar seventh house, dear Libra, where it will transit until July 5th. This influence enlivens your relationships with others, sometimes stimulating conflicts but also generating excitement, passion, and activity. There can be friction between you and a significant other, which need not be difficult if handled well. Shared activities can help you release excess energy. This transit tends to turn up the heat in a relationship or challenges you to find a better balance in your life, in general. You’ll be learning a lot about yourself, your desires, and your motivations through your interactions with others. Today, you see past matters and relationships in new ways, and important realizations can emerge. There can be magic in your research, or an intimate conversation can be very revealing.
ScorpioMars is now transiting your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, bringing dynamic energy to your daily routines and self-care efforts until July 5th. You can be excited about self-improvement efforts and super motivated to get more things done. Difficulties arise if you feel others are pushing their work on you or telling you what to do and if you give in to impatience. You might also watch for pushing yourself too hard, or too fast. If you’ve been craving better methods and programs for health and work, then this is the time when you are ready to take action. Work could be more competitive or your daily life busier during this cycle. Today, you might reconnect with a person from your past or reach a new understanding of a past relationship. You might also be breathing new life into old projects and studies.
SagittariusMars is now transiting your solar fifth house, dear Sagittarius, marking a turning of the corner for you. With Mars supporting you until July 5th, you’re more confident, involved, and spirited. During this cycle, you might pour a lot of your energy and initiative into actively pursuing a rewarding love life, social amusement or hobbies, and pleasure in general. There could be more conflicts in romance or simply a stronger desire to participate in creative endeavors, athletics, games, entertainment, and pleasurable activities. You are in a personally magnetic and attractive cycle. Impatience or too-hot pursuit of your goals can lead to conflicts or trouble. Otherwise, confidently pursuing your heart’s desire can be magical in the weeks ahead. Today, you’re ready to tackle problems that may have eluded you in the past. You can make empowering improvements to your daily routines and self-care programs. Editing, revising, and reviewing are particularly favored right now.
CapricornEnergetic, fiery Mars is now animating your sector of home and family, dear Capricorn, and will continue to do so until July 5th. This transit brings a lot of energy to your domestic life, and possibly too much, at times! Channeled well, you can get a lot done around the home. Being more assertive and forthright with people you live with might also figure strongly. If these energies are left to simmer, there can be some argumentativeness or tension in your personal life. You are especially protective of yourself and others, so be careful that you don’t take on a defensive attitude that prevents others from getting close to you during this cycle. Today can be especially strong for personal persuasion, conviction, and motivation. It’s a good time to revive old interests and ideas. You see things and people in terms of layers, and your ability to size up a situation is excellent as a result.
AquariusMars is transiting your communications sector now and until July 5th, dear Aquarius, and it can be a busy, connected time for you. The motivation to learn and pursue your mental interests is strong. However, impatience can be a problem if you feel others are not keeping your quick pace. Mars acts to speed up your daily routine in a variety of ways. While impatience with others, argumentativeness, and competitiveness are potential negatives of this position, with awareness of these tendencies, managing them comes more easily. In fact, it’s a strong period for mental resourcefulness and sharpness. It’s a time for feeding your need for mental stimulation without overdoing it, of course. You’re more likely to pursue and develop intellectual passions or studies and find more courage to share your ideas. You can quickly get fired up about your views. Try not to jump too quickly to communicate, especially when you’re angry. Today, conversations can quickly turn intimate, deep, or meaningful, as you have little interest in small talk. Fortunately, you could uncover exciting information now, and this can change your thinking in powerful ways. This is also a good time for rediscovering old projects or reviving old interests, particularly in your personal life, with family, and in and around your home. There can be vivid memories and important discoveries. You may be facing up to a neglected area of your life that now seems quite important to revisit — and you have much to gain in the process.
PiscesMars has just exited your sign and moved into your solar second house, dear Pisces, where it will influence until July 5th. This transit stimulates your desire to improve your lot in life in the six weeks ahead. Fiery Mars has occupied your sign since mid-April, and this has brought considerable energy and drive to your life, but also some impatience and pressure. Now that Mars has moved on, your life tends to settle down a little. Your desire to bring abundance or comfort into your life grows. You may feel increasingly motivated to make money, but you are also capable of impulsive purchases during this period. For best results, focus on building and developing your projects and your confidence to pursue what you want. Today, you can feel reinvigorated from a connection or project from your past that is now looking more manageable or attractive. There is a strong desire to bond and connect on deeper than usual levels with others, and conversations tend to reflect this — they can quickly become passionate or deep, in a largely pleasant way.
