Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMental energy runs high today, dear Aries, with a Mercury-Mars alignment that can have your mind reeling and pulse quickening. Ideas work you up, and you may feel a little fed up with a situation that’s been dragging on too long. While this is impatient, active energy, these planets form a square to Saturn, and blockages are likely. Consider that things can escalate quickly now. If something feels very unfair, you need to talk about it, but your choice of words and tone will be especially important now, so keep it light since it’s the kind of day when people can take things entirely the wrong way. You might uncover a secret or pursue a line of research doggedly today, but avoid overdoing it. There can be a rush involving financial matters, but you can do only so much for the time being. Your money situation can be very much tied up with others — what you share, owe, and what you’re due. Your desire to get to the truth of a matter can work for or against you, depending on how you handle it. In your conversations, watch that you respect your limits and others’ limits, too. Treat impatience as your enemy, and you’ll be in better shape.
TaurusOthers seem to push your buttons today, dear Taurus, as Mercury and Mars align in your partnership sector and clash with Saturn. It’s a little too easy to get involved in an argument or stand-off since the general tendency is to speak too quickly or harshly and to be insensitive or stubborn. You might be acting provocatively, pushing others’ buttons as well, perhaps to see what kind of effect or hold you have on them. Someone may be very intent on getting under your skin or could be trying to turn you on to an idea or plan. It can be a good idea to channel extra energy into productive activities. However, in some cases, disagreement or conflict may help uncover important buried issues that could do with some addressing. Nevertheless, it’s very easy to get yourself into an argument, even if you are not doing so intentionally, so choose your battles wisely! Timing can be off in your interactions–when one is hot, the other is cold. If you’ve been moving too fast, it may be time to slow down and pace yourself. There can be disapproval about long-term goals or a sense that someone is standing in the way of your ambitions, but it’s temporary.
GeminiYou’re not as tolerant of problem areas in your life today, dear Gemini, which can be highly motivating. Mercury and Mars align in your work and health sector, and you might strive to be more efficient, skilled, or organized. Even so, you could feel that others are in your way, blocking your path, or overbearing or controlling. It may be best to avoid taking on too much or working yourself up too much over minor flaws and problems. The pace can pick up surrounding work or daily routines now, and others may not be working quite as quickly as you are or contributing as much. Conversations can heat up quickly, but they can also pull up buried difficulties and issues that may need your attention. Ideally, this is an active day for attending to practical affairs with enthusiasm. However, issues that cause you anxiety or guilt might undermine your productivity.
CancerWhile you can have a strong urge to get things done today, dear Cancer, there can be some frustration if you attempt to push something that needs more time to play out. With today’s tense aspects, you might decide things quickly with love relationships, entertainment, pleasure, dating, or creativity. However, decisions could be lacking an emotional element, so watch for getting ahead of yourself. Mental excitement can cross the line into irritation. Watch for impulsive communications or steps. Friendly competition might drive you to do bigger and better things, and even the unfriendly variety can ultimately prompt you to improve your life. Smoothing out your energy levels can be helpful if you’re dealing with a delay or reality check. Of course, it can be frustrating to take things easy when a big part of you is ready for action, but it seems the best move at the moment.
LeoYou can be excited about a project or idea, but you might also face blocks, dear Leo. If you’re feeling cooped up or unable to express yourself, try not to stir the pot since it can be all too easy to express impatience. Mercury aligns with Mars today, and both bodies form a square to Saturn. While you can be especially motivated to take action or solve a problem, the universe may seem to be blocking your moves. There can be harsh words or false starts. Avoid overdoing it. The intensity of current aspects could bring excitable energy to your inner world or home life, or there can be a sudden need to revisit a neglected area of your life. People can be defensive of their ideas and opinions and critical of yours, and it may be best to avoid getting caught in the crossfire. While you have wonderful energy and motivation with you these days to work on and around the home, it can be relatively easy to trigger frustrations and buried anger about the past today. Arguments entered into today can reach stalemates. Consider ways to manage both family or your personal life and partnerships more effectively. If someone is overruling you for no reason, it’s time to stand your ground. However, consider that we’re all a little sensitive today. Aim to solve rather than make problems!
VirgoThere can be a lot on your mind or your plate today, dear Virgo, with Mercury, your ruler, aligning with Mars and square to Saturn. Interactions with others can be edgy and tense at times, or things can seem fine until there’s a difference of opinion. You’re likely to discover that people are holding onto their beliefs quite tightly right now. Do your best to maintain a healthy level of detachment when expressing opinions or engaging in a debate with competitive, provocative, and controversial energy around you. However, this can also be a time to discover flaws in a plan that are irritating now but ultimately free you. Watch for haste with words and moves. This is a high-energy day on a mental level, and you can very easily become all wound up! It’s a time when something that has been dragging on too long frustrates you, and you want to do something about it. Keep in mind that a lot is going on in your head, and you may end up talking ahead of yourself and possibly misrepresenting yourself as a result. There may also be blocks to getting your message across or getting from one place to another without incident. Responsibilities can limit your studies and personal interests now, and may serve as a reminder to slow down and find better ways of getting your work done.
LibraMercury and Mars forming an alignment today can inspire you but can also aggravate problems, dear Libra. Their challenging aspect with Saturn complicates things further. On the one hand, it can be a good day for exciting ideas about business, money, and practical matters. On the other, there can also be impatience, and skipping necessary steps can lead to problems. Blocks, delays, or vetoes can be part of the picture. You could find yourself defending your values, your worth, or even your spending. Watch for a tendency to want to prove something, and it may be that you’re taking things a little too personally. It may be best to channel excess mental energy into a special project. A great idea might open the doorway to an increase in income down the road, even if it faces some resistance right now. Aim to learn from whatever conflict or difference you experience–it’s helpful to have a reality check from time to time, but it’s not always fun when it happens. If you’ve been going too hard with spending or indulgence, there can be a reminder or reality check to respect your limits.
ScorpioWhile you may be all fired up about pursuing something today, dear Scorpio, circumstances seem to stand in your way, or people in your life appear unyielding and not very sympathetic to your cause! Mercury and Mars align in your sign, and mental energy runs high. However, both bodies form a square to Saturn, and routine domestic tasks can seem harder to take right now. Your ideas, plans, or passions can meet with obstinacy or disapproval, or you feel blocked. Be kind to yourself and avoid pushing something too hard, but don’t let go of your passions or motivations in the process. You may need to make adjustments to your goals. It’s wise to avoid impulsive communications so that you can reclaim your personal power. You are filled with energy and vision today–try not to waste it on arguing a point. Quick conclusions may lead to regrettable commentary or decisions. As well, it can be a little too easy to push your buttons! Consider that delays can help you pace yourself, or if needed, redirect you along a better path. In the end, relying on yourself can be much more satisfying than you first imagined.
SagittariusYou might want to gather all of your facts before communicating on a matter today, dear Sagittarius, as there is a tendency to start something too quickly. People are also inclined to jump on each other’s words or call them out. Anxious thoughts or concerns are important to address, but avoid letting them take you over. Arguments entered into today can reach stalemates. If you need to discuss something close to your heart, you might wait for a more accepting atmosphere to do so. You might also discover that keeping a project or idea to yourself is useful just for now. Issues from the past can re-emerge, or news today can make your mind race. Unless you’re channeling mental energy into something creative and positive, avoid letting your imagination run away from you. Watch also for an overactive curiosity. There can be new and exciting developments in your private life or insights into a long-standing problem. Still, an obstacle or bump in the road may temporarily delay a pursuit. It can be challenging to find the chance to express yourself as you want just for now, but it may be best to stew on things a little longer.
CapricornWith today’s Mercury-Mars alignment, dear Capricorn, you may want to settle a long-standing problem, or you can be gathering exciting ideas through your connections to others. However, these planets are challenged by Saturn, and there can be a reality check or block to manage. You can have strong ideas and experience powerful motivation regarding a particular plan, but there can be some opposition to contend with first. It’s easy for you to get quite fired up about issues close to your heart, and your feelings about a friend or your social connections can also be more intense. A rude awakening may or may not work in your favor, so choose your battles wisely now. Or, if you feel compelled to bring up a touchy subject, take extra time to express yourself mindfully, which, admittedly, can be hard to do today. Concerns about money, resources, talents, or earnings could surface. Consider ways to strengthen these areas of life, but take your time. Rushing things today can end up delaying them! If something has been impeding your social life or long-term goals, you’ll feel the tension, and restructuring, organizing, and budgeting may be in order. Look for ways that can help you feel more in control and back on track.
AquariusBuried hurts can jump out of hiding today, dear Aquarius. If you’re not careful, they can find expression in one way or another in your conversations. Secrets might be revealed, or previously hidden matters can come to light that might be uncomfortable at first, but in the long run, could push you towards the light. Of course, it’s best to take care with Mercury and Mars in alignment, stirred by Saturn in your sign. Stalemates can occur, so avoid pushing matters. It may be better to observe, formulate a strategy, and then act later. If you use the tense energies of today constructively, it can be a good time to pour yourself into a project that gets you somewhere. However, you may be wrestling with your fears of advancement and success. Consider that your words and actions are more noticeable and seem to come with more consequences than usual, both good and bad–you’re attracting more attention. Your heart may not be in the equation today, which can point to some form of misrepresentation if you’re not careful. If you’ve been pushing too hard or going overboard recently, particularly with work or outside obligations, you may meet with resistance. Personal responsibilities distract you from your goals and professional duties. It’s not the ideal time for making a stand or pushing a project or person, so consider slowing things down and arriving at a more comfortable, natural pace. It’s not to say you shouldn’t challenge yourself at this time, as you should, but some things require a softer touch.
PiscesYou can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter today, dear Pisces, and you’re mentally sharp. However, consider that your heart may not be ready for where your mind wants to go right now. There can be much defensiveness and perhaps some hurt feelings when ideas are not adopted right away, and it’s best not to get caught up in it. There are no winners in arguments that don’t have any growth potential. With Saturn’s transits that seem to introduce blocks, delays, or restrictions, there can also be difficulty advancing your ideas or projects just for now. There may be a hurdle to clear, or your timing might be off as you struggle with whether to go forward with a project or pursue a desire. Feelings of guilt or the need to take care of others can prevent you from doing what you want to do, and while you’re itching to experience new things, a private matter or a self-limiting attitude can keep you on the fence. Slow down, but avoid becoming discouraged by a very temporary block. If a difference of opinion touches a nerve, it may very well be better to work things out in your head since people are not especially responsive or yielding under today’s transits.
