Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun aligns with Uranus today, dear Aries, sparking the need for innovation and inspiration with your business, finances, work, health, and talents. Today is a day for embracing change and accepting that unpredictability can sometimes bring exciting new possibilities into your life. Your thinking is progressive and enterprising, and you’re exploring your unique qualities and talents. There can be a sudden desire for a fancy new item or new technology in your everyday life that changes your methods or mood. It’s also possible that you feel a strong need to unburden yourself of excess possessions or clutter. You can become aware of what you’ve been holding onto emotionally and physically, and it becomes clear how some of this may be holding you back in key areas of your life. You probably shouldn’t expect things to go as planned today, and while this can be unsettling at first, it can also lead to worthwhile realizations and detours.
TaurusThe Sun and Uranus align in your sign today, dear Taurus, bringing strong personal energy into your world. You’re learning a whole new way of doing your life with Uranus in your sign, whether it’s about your true calling, personal initiative, presentation, or attitude. You’re intolerant of limitations and restrictions today as you try to break free from the things holding you back from growing. You can be excitable and perhaps a little impatient, particularly with rules or impositions. While you can feel rebellious now, you put yourself in the best position if you answer to a genuine need to make progress rather than merely react to what others are doing. Your individuality, uniqueness, and free spirit are all in the spotlight today. The Moon spends the day in your solar ninth house, further reinforcing a desire to break the routine.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Uranus alignment shines a light on what inspires and excites you, dear Gemini, and these things may surprise you! Events or realizations might open the doors to a healing process or a new beginning. There can be coincidences or impromptu connections that change your focus. Things can happen that feel predestined, out of the blue, or uncanny. Minor disruptions can have the effect of distancing you from self-limiting secrets or situations, ultimately giving you more freedom. If you’re not in touch with your need for change, you might grapple with inner restlessness or touchiness today, which can nevertheless be revealing. The Moon spends the day in your hidden eighth house, reinforcing a theme of looking within for answers.
CancerThe Sun’s yearly alignment with Uranus occurs today in your solar eleventh house, dear Cancer, strongly influencing your social life, your sense of community, and money matters. You might broaden your horizons through networking, or there can be a rejuvenation in a relationship. You might explore new labels or connect with different people. Some upsets or disruptions are possible, too, as Uranus tends to help you detach from areas where you’ve been too attached for your own good. Certainly, there can be some excitement or surprises now. Even so, curveballs thrown at you today tend to nudge you in new directions, which can be refreshing, even if there is initial disorientation or disruption of plans.
LeoThe Sun aligns with Uranus in your solar tenth house today, dear Leo, which can bring refreshment to matters related to your life path, career, or reputation. You might crave a fresh start or increased freedom, whether personally or professionally. There may be some incentives or benefits for your accomplishments. Minor disruptions or unexpected changes this week can lead you in new directions later. You are slightly more detached than usual regarding your work and reputation, which can lead to bolder or at least interesting choices. Your reputation may be going through changes, and as a result, you’re doing things a little differently. It’s important to remind yourself of the need to change along with changing times rather than resist those things that help you grow and improve.

There can be a mind-opening experience, or it’s a time of finding inspiration by branching out and exploring places or topics you wouldn’t typically investigate. Your unique ideas, approach, or guidance can be in the spotlight. The Moon spends the day in your creative sector, further boosting your desire to enjoy and treat yourself.
LibraThe Sun and Uranus align in your solar eighth house today, dear Libra, awakening feelings and urges. You can experience a deep eagerness to make profound and long-lasting changes in your personality or lifestyle now. Alternatively, suppose you’re not in touch with this need for change. In that case, you can receive a wake-up call or experience an unexpected event that stimulates the need to change your dependencies or your approach, particularly to people in your life and with money matters. If you’ve been feeling at the mercy of others who seem to want to pull your strings, this is a time you’ll want to break free. It’s an excellent time to overturn expectations and break some of your usual routines so that you can grow and thrive. A friendship may be a catalyst for making improvements. With Uranus strong, you might desensitize or detach a little to make bolder choices. Use this energy for a boost of courage to make a change that’s meaningful to you.
ScorpioThe Sun-Uranus alignment occurs in your house of partnerships, dear Scorpio, awakening your desire for connection. Someone might bring surprises into your life, or you may get in sudden touch with your relationship needs, whether they’re new or revised. It’s not easy to accept rules and limitations today. Instead, you could meet this rebellious energy through a partner or special friend. Unpredictability can be disorienting, but it can also lead to a new understanding of what you need from others and what you’re capable of on your own. It’s also possible that you arrive at a different perspective through someone else’s input or unreliability. Old ways of relating to others fall to the side, paving the way for exciting breakthroughs.
SagittariusWith the Sun and Uranus aligning in your solar sixth house, dear Sagittarius, it’s a time that brings new energy for work, chores, daily routines, and wellness efforts. Increasingly, you require a fresh or different approach to how you handle routines and manage your health.

You might consider which elements of your daily life, work, and habits no longer serve you well. The Moon’s stay in your resources sector all day points to a stronger need to feel more secure and steady.
CapricornThe Sun meets with Uranus in your creative sector, dear Capricorn, which can bring a feeling of rejuvenation and spirited energy into your life. You stand out for your unique creations or personality, or a need awakens to express yourself in unique ways. Signs point to the need for you to detach yourself a little from areas of over-control or those things that deplete your energy stores. This transit awakens you to the need to change, grow, and improve. There may be disruptions, detours, or excitement related to your loves, passions, hobbies, and feelings. Plans might change at the last minute, enabling more freeform and inspirational experiences. It’s much better to identify where change is necessary for your life than to resist it and block things further. The Moon spends the day in your sign, further keeping you on your toes.
AquariusThe Sun and Uranus join forces in your solar fourth house of home, heart, and family today, dear Aquarius, and you can feel that your personal life or domestic world needs a brand new approach. The desire to grow, improve, and change can be intense today, or changes come your way, and adjustments are necessary. It’s possible that you need disruptions to routines for your life to move forward. Falling back on the same old conditioned approaches in relationships or habits will only frustrate you today, so aim to make progress with a new style or plan. This way, you might break out of the mold that others have created for you. Partnership matters can be very favorable today, particularly if independence and individuality are emphasized and honored.
PiscesThis is a good time for communications, work, health, friendship, and group connections, dear Pisces. New interests or channels for communicating are changing your perspective. Your ideas, advice, or guidance might stand out as particularly unique and perhaps in demand as the Sun and Uranus align in your communications sector.
