Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mars in your sector of joy these days, dear Aries, there’s largely smooth-flowing energy for self-expression and entertainment. Your magnetism levels are strong. You can be stepping up hobbies, pastimes, leisure time, creative works, or romance. You want to have more fun or pursue your heart’s desire. Today, Mars and the North Node form a square, however, and there can be a struggle between your desire for more excitement and the stronger need for stability, conservation, and savings. If you’re feeling competitive, use this energy to work for you. Watch for rushing or impatience to handle needs and desires.
TaurusWith Mars in your home and family sector these days, dear Taurus, you’re pouring more energy into your personal life. While this is not the easiest position for a smooth flow of energy, and in fact, you can experience variable energy and motivation levels, it’s an excellent time for taking care of household and family matters. It’s a time for activities with or on behalf of family and satisfying projects around the home. Watch for bottling up anger or taking your frustrations with the outside world out on people you live with during this cycle that lasts until July 10th. Today, a Mars-Node square can escalate some tensions if you feel your home life clashes with personal pursuits and desires. It makes sense to tune out distractions as much as possible so that you can focus on something important.
GeminiWith Mars in your communications sector these days, dear Gemini, your daily affairs are lively, and you’re motivated to learn more, pursue personal interests, get out and about, and connect with others. You want to put plans or ideas into motion. While you should watch for aggressive or impulsive words and transit during this cycle until July 10th, it’s a great time to take the lead and the initiative with learning and sharing your ideas or reaching out to others. Still, with a Mars-Node square today, while your spirit for discovery is active, you may also need some time to sort out your feelings and experiences. If your mind is in overdrive, try to put aside tension over personal viewpoints, paperwork, or errands.
CancerYour drive to make money or to make your life more secure is strong these days, dear Cancer, with Mars in your solar second house until July 10th. Still, there could be some impulsiveness with purchases. You may want to watch for sudden “needs” that may seem frivolous if given some thought and time. Much of your energy can be directed into business endeavors and seeking material security in the weeks ahead. A reminder of an expense, money concern, or a feeling of missing out could be frustrating today. You would do well to conserve energy until you have the confidence to go full speed ahead.
LeoYou’re more driven with Mars in your sign until July 10th, dear Leo. This transit spotlights your fiery assertiveness, courage, initiative, and energy. This transit can stir strong desires to begin new projects or to present yourself in bolder, more dynamic ways. You have more energy during this cycle, sometimes to the point of excess, and it’s a good idea to find ways to manage it to your advantage. Pace yourself, but take action on things that matter to you most for best results. Today, try to envision your life direction or career matters in a creative yet structured way. You can be susceptible to distractions as you struggle with where to devote your energies.
VirgoWith the Moon continuing its transit of your private solar twelfth house much of the day, dear Virgo, you’re seeking more quiet or anonymity. However, once the Moon enters your sign, your need for emotional connectedness emerges. It’s a time to follow your feelings. Even so, today’s Mars-Node square can present a dilemma. Part of you is itching to explore, discover, and question, and another part wants to take a break. Certainly, you want to escape the humdrum today, but choosing how to take that break can be difficult. Downtime is vital with Mars in your privacy sector until July 10th, but you need a change of pace, too–something to engage your mind and refresh your spirit.
LibraMars is boosting your energy, courage, and assertiveness with friends and your social life these days, dear Libra, in its transit of your social sector until July 10th. You can be especially busy with activities or teamwork and possibly the demands of others in your life. If there are some competitive feelings with associates or peers during this period, it’s possible they’re helpful ones, boosting your motivation to improve your life. You’re likely to come up with some exciting plans for your future during this cycle, and something (or someone) might inspire you to work toward a specific goal or dream. Today, you’re inclined to take things personally. It may be that you need to gather up your energy and think more carefully before going forward with important projects.
ScorpioYou continue to be in a take-charge mood most of the day, dear Scorpio, or circumstances seem to demand you pay attention to priorities. Later today, however, you’re gearing up for recreation or an easier emotional focus. With Mars in your solar tenth house these days (until July 10th), it can be a time of higher energy and ambition, motivation, and competitive feelings. This Mars transit awakens and enlivens life path goals, your public life, responsibilities, performance, business affairs, and career. Today, these drives and urges can seem to clash with your relationship goals. You could feel temporarily overwhelmed by your responsibilities, but you can’t seem to pull yourself away from these things. So that you avoid the traps of doing something and holding a grudge, find a balance within yourself instead of trying to manage things outside of yourself. You can do this by resolving only to do what is reasonable and feels right.
SagittariusYour mood for adventure and variety is strong today, dear Sagittarius. You can feel more motivated, enthusiastic, positive, and energized these days with the current Mars cycle, lasting until July 10th, and you may be attracted to new physical or mental challenges. Debates can be lively and passionate at this time. Today, there can be a tendency to rush something or succumb to pressures to get far too much done quickly. It can be challenging to focus, which comes down to feeling torn between the desire for more life experience and the need to figure out details. The sooner you reach a compromise, the better you can make the most of the day.
CapricornWith Mars in your solar eighth these days, dear Capricorn, you’re seeking deeper connections, whether this is with a project, a person, or yourself! You can uncover valuable information about your past during this transit until July 10th, and your ability to manage stress and pressure increases, even if you are feeling more sensitive, perhaps as a defense mechanism. You’re also more willing and courageous than usual to dig deep and acknowledge your innermost desires. If you’ve been having issues with power dynamics and sharing in a relationship, now is the time to pull them out of hiding and tackle them directly. You can use this period for taking actions that empower you, such as quitting bad habits or cutting out addictions. You are learning that power is not about having the upper hand with others. Instead, it’s about managing your own energy effectively. Today, however, you can feel somewhat torn between applying yourself to a challenging project/problem and enjoying some free time. It may be best to avoid spinning your wheels by reaching a compromise.
AquariusWith Mars in your opposite sign these days, dear Aquarius, you’re directing the courageous, energetic, and active qualities of Mars to partnerships, relationships, and teamwork until July 10th. This transit can enliven partnerships or interactions and could be a time for clearing the air. It’s difficult to ignore relationship problems or stagnation in a key relationship, or important players in your life are more assertive. Relationships can have a competitive feel, but this may also be a time when a particular person helps you find your courage or confidence. Today, your partnership goals may seem to clash with family or domestic objectives. A Mars-Node square can pull up buried resentments or frustrations, and they might surface through your interactions with a partner or significant someone, so you’re wise to attempt to sort out what’s truly yours! People around you are dealing with their own issues and are less likely than usual to intuit your needs. If you use excess energy positively, you might work on lightening your load.
PiscesMars in your work and health sector these days animates your daily life, dear Pisces. You’re particularly motivated to get on top of your work, routines, and health until July 10th. You tend to pour more energy into organizing your space, pursuing health goals, and providing services or doing your work during this cycle. Watch for pushing yourself too hard in these areas, but enjoy the rush of enthusiasm to take better care of yourself. Mars energy is enthusiastic but also competitive, sometimes stirring up conflict, and today, a Mars-Node square can point to an equal interest in personal pursuits and duties. Still, it’s important not to overdo it. Try to tune out some of the extras for the best results.
