Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith transits early today, it’s all too easy to misjudge matters, dear Aries. Keeping this in mind, you might toy with ideas but reserve judgment. Avoid taking on more than you can reasonably handle. Aim to connect with your basic needs, and you’ll be on the right track. Still, today’s energies are complicated for your practical affairs or comfort levels. With the Sun and Saturn forming a square, you may need to address a problem related to a friendship, project, or money matter. You can be particularly sensitive to rejection or to feeling excluded. If you’re dealing with a humbling experience now, aim to take the lesson from it and move forward a little wiser. A good strategy may be to focus on your own commitments and responsibilities and do your best to meet them. Concentrating on what you can control can help minimize frustrations.
TaurusThere can be some tendency to say something too soon or too quickly today, dear Taurus. It’s a good idea to watch for overstating. A Sun-Saturn square reminds you of the rules or limits of a situation, and you can be pretty sensitive to criticism or blockages. It’s a time to work towards a long-term goal and remind yourself that patience will be rewarded, rather than worrying too much about temporary obstacles. Rising above it means you win. You may not get what you want just now, likely due to career or other responsibilities and limitations, but any slowdowns experienced today can help you focus your attention on those things that truly matter in the long term. Today is about reshuffling your priorities and finding better, more efficient ways to get things done.
GeminiWatch for pushing yourself too hard if you’re impatient to reach a goal today, dear Gemini. It’s best to pace yourself and aim to respect everyone’s boundaries, including your own! Keeping things moderate helps you enjoy the opportunities of the day. A square between the Sun and Saturn can lead you to see a project or situation for its flaws. It may be difficult to get through your routine, or delays can play with your enthusiasm and motivation levels. As much as you might prefer to lay low and get the rest you need, obligations are likely to pull you out of your comfort zone. It’s time to deal with a feeling of dread about facing a problem area. You might decide to fight feelings of being overwhelmed by tackling something small to begin with and aiming to do more in steps going forward. Even if there are delays, you might discover ways to improve plans and projects while you wait.
CancerThere can be imbalances between what you want from someone and what they want from you today, dear Cancer. It’s likely temporary, and patience will serve you best. Responsibilities and duties can loom large in your mind today. Problems encountered early today are likely only reality checks, slowing you down just enough to make necessary refinements. With Saturn challenging the Sun, this is a day for paying closer attention to rules and details, but it’s a good idea to let things play out before passing judgment. With the Moon in your intimacy sector all day, you’re in touch with your deeper feelings more than usual.
LeoThere is some tendency to blow something out of proportion today, dear Leo, making too much of a matter that has little importance in the long run. Try to be patient and get the whole picture before drawing conclusions. Try not to communicate about an issue too quickly, as perceptions can be a little off, especially in the first half of today. Our understanding of a situation can be incomplete. Today’s Sun-Saturn square reminds you to think in simpler terms and get things right before moving forward. Others may seem to stand in the way of your progress, but with a little effort and focus on your own goals, this can be an excellent time to make essential tweaks that contribute to long-term success. You may need to pare things down to move forward. Consider that any apparent slowdown occurring now requires patience. While obligations can feel burdensome in spots today, you also have opportunities to grow through your experiences.
VirgoIt’s better not to jump to conclusions today, dear Virgo, as you tend to see-saw between seeing a situation for worse or better than it is. It’s temporary, and it’s a good idea to wait until you feel more clear-headed before deciding something important. Even with possible misjudgments, interesting possibilities can ultimately emerge. You may be defending your ideas, and it’s energizing, but moodiness can ensue if nobody’s truly listening to one another, which is very likely with today’s energies. Aim to be moderate in your expectations for best results. A Sun-Saturn square is a signal to get something right before pushing forward. There’s no need to go against the tide. It’s a time for correcting problems that may have accumulated due to shortcuts taken in the past. Seeing errors and fixing them now means you’ll be freer and more confident later.
LibraYou may be working with incomplete information early today, dear Libra, making it best to reserve judgment. The desire to make big promises to make someone happy can come on now, but it’s best to keep things real today. A Sun-Saturn square enhances the ability to see the flaws, perhaps a little too much so. Streamlining and simplifying are important strategies because doing so will reduce waste and save you time in the long term, even if it feels as if it’s slow going right now. Temporary setbacks may discourage you now, but they could also lead to greater happiness later, so be as patient as you can.
ScorpioWith an emphasis on your partnership sector these days, you might often want to share decisions with someone else, dear Scorpio. Today’s energies seem to pit your need for personal space against your desire for feedback. Try not to read too much into slowdowns, as the flaws of a situation appear more prominent than the strengths temporarily. With a Sun-Saturn square, you could be second-guessing a partner, a plan, or yourself. Try to use a temporary block, hesitation, or delay as a chance to catch your breath. You might come to a more realistic assessment of a relationship or project as a result.
SagittariusA project may need a second look, dear Sagittarius, and you may need to make adjustments to the time and energy allotted to it. There may be a sense that you have so many things to do that you don’t know where to begin. Try not to waste time on feeling overwhelmed — pick something small and work from there. When it comes to news or promises, it’s best to double-check facts and reserve judgment. Motivation or energy levels may seem to wane just a little, and timing may be off, or a delay can be part of the picture. Seeing the flaws of a situation helps you identify what needs fixing before you move forward. You’re more sensitive to limits and restrictions, and it’s best to remind yourself that taking your time to perfect something will be rewarding and satisfying in the long run. Adjusting expectations is important, and it’s wise to consider that a reality check can help you get back on track.
CapricornAim to be patient and avoid jumping to conclusions today, dear Capricorn. Moods or expectations can play with your judgment temporarily. While the Sun’s transit is now bringing more playful and expressive energy into your life in general, there are natural breaks to this flow, and today may be one of those times. Insecurity or responsibility might hold you back from expressing yourself openly and naturally. A Sun-Saturn square reminds you of certain realities and practical factors related to recent projects and relationship developments. Your attention turns to limitations, likely having to do with resources. Another possibility with this combination is the sense that others are not treating you for what you’re worth. Taking a lesson from a humbling experience can be very worth your while, saving you time and energy in the long run. Attention to practical matters now brings rewards later.
AquariusIt’s probably better not to make big decisions based only on perceptions today, dear Aquarius. Rather than take on more, aim to simplify today. News could be exaggerated, and it may not be easy to know whether to take something lightly or attach more meaning to it with current transits. Blocks can slow you down long enough to see potential problems or drawbacks that previously escaped your attention. With plenty of activity currently in your home and family sector, the need to get comfortable is strong. You might deal with competing desires to be nurtured and to get things done independently today. You may need to get nagging problems out of the way before you can enjoy some peace. If you feel cut off or unappreciated, aim to be more explicit about your needs, but save important conversations for a day when you feel fresh.
PiscesThere is some tendency to put too much into a particular line of thought or plan today, dear Pisces. It may be best to be sure you have all the facts before moving forward with something important to you. There can be a real tendency to say something prematurely or to talk ahead of yourself. Avoid making and investing in promises. It’s not the time to divulge sensitive information. A Sun-Saturn aspect can make it too easy to focus on what’s not working in your life. Better use of your energy would be to work on straightening out problems and details. Remember that you may be judging yourself or your performance too harshly, but taking notes or lessons from whatever is happening now will probably serve you best. It may be better to think things through and wait things out.
