Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars, currently in your sign for an extended stay (and your planetary ruler), ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Aries. You may have felt anxious to get going but held back in recent weeks, but now, energy and motivation levels increase. Recent personal challenges and frustrations will begin to dissipate, and you can more confidently move your plans forward. With Venus moving through your partnership sector, relationships should also improve. Ideally, the past two months of retrograde activity has been useful for redirecting you along better paths. In the coming weeks, you’ll be building your resolve and moving plans and projects forward. You’re clearer about what you desire, and this simplifies many different areas of life! You regain energy and drive, and the rewards for your efforts are more evident and motivating. Note that this doesn’t happen all at once–the transition period may be tricky, so take things slowly for now. Decisions shouldn’t be rushed.
TaurusStarting now, you are less inclined to nurse your wounds and hold on to resentments, dear Taurus, with Mars ending its two-month retrograde cycle. Mars continues to move behind the scenes in your privacy sector until January, however, and there’s more inner work to do. Still, it’s now easier to pinpoint what needs extra effort. You continue to benefit from more time to rest and reflect, and it becomes more straightforward to do so. Your desires become clearer. When Mars does re-enter your sign in January, you’ll be raring to go. Take decisions slowly and ease yourself back into action for best results. Distractions aside, today can be quite favorable for finding the right information or resources in your work.
GeminiMars ends its retrograde cycle of over two months, dear Gemini. Gradually, matters seem smoother and more straightforward. Friendships begin to straighten out after some confusion of boundaries or emotional complications. You’re learning who is truly in your corner, and your own desires, needs, and affections become more evident. Gradually, you’ll be refueling with enough energy and confidence to pursue new experiences. It’s best not to expect immediate results, but have faith that slowly but surely, you’ll get where you want to go. A less complicated existence is certainly something to look forward to, and you can feel as if you’re turning a corner.
CancerMars turns direct today, dear Cancer, ending a retrograde cycle that lasted over two months. In the weeks ahead, career matters are likely to improve, whether this has to do with conditions, clarity, or confidence in your work and your broader goals. Your desires and motivation levels improve. Blocks lift, and you might find you begin to work more on your own terms. Where there was emotional distance or coolness in business recently, there is now more warmth and directness. You can enjoy a stronger sense of direction and more time spent moving things forward instead of fixing or editing. Smoothing out rocky areas should come more naturally. You are more courageous and in a great position to manage and lead. For now, it’s best to ease through this transition–try not to expect instant results.
LeoMars turns direct today after over two months of retrograde motion, dear Leo. You’re likely to find that pressure eases as people respond more directly to one another. Problems related to sharing, ideas, opinions, and transportation or commuting experienced in recent months begin to iron out. Relationships with in-laws, neighbors, and siblings should also round out nicely. This can be a turning point or a signal of forward movement for studies, projects, publishing efforts, or legal affairs. Courage, confidence, and clarity are returning, starting today! Projects and personal interests can bring greater rewards. Don’t try to take on too much all at once, however. Easing forward is best after a retrograde period.
VirgoYou’ll feel more in the loop after today’s Mars station, dear Virgo. Mars has been retrograde since September 9th and is now turning direct. Financial complexities begin to unravel, and dealings with a partner and with financial institutions become more straightforward after a feeling of treading water. Be patient and take things one step at a time. It’s not yet the time for quick settlements or bold moves. You’ll appreciate a more straightforward approach to these matters (and life, in general). Energy and direction improve in the coming weeks. Use the period ahead to face problems directly and courageously, but ease back into action. Today, it may be all too easy to waste time. Wires can get crossed. You’re in better shape in familiar situations and with family right now.
LibraMars turns direct today after over two months of retrograde motion, dear Libra. With this turning point, relationship dynamics are likely to smooth over. Straightforwardly dealing with others has been difficult recently with Mars retrograde in your partnership sector. Relationships begin to regain momentum now, and your desires feel clearer. Ideally, you now have a better sense of what you want (and don’t). Mars is still in opposition to your sign until January, and some fireworks in your connections are still likely, but resolutions are also in the pipeline. The desire to move forward on a relationship matter can be intense, or you feel that you now have the psychological tools or enough information to go ahead. Ease back into action now for best results. Today, give your imagination a nice stretch but save big efforts for later.
ScorpioYou’ve had to take your time with big decisions and feel things out with Mars retrograde in recent weeks, dear Scorpio. Mars now turns direct, and you’re at a turning point. You’ll begin to see rewards for work and health efforts. Work complications tend to iron out as you move forward. You may feel inspired to work a little harder for the things you love or pour more attention toward health and wellness pursuits. In fact, you may now discover a more fulfilling direction. You’ll soon be ready to make decisions and take action that you’ve been mulling over. Ease yourself into new beginnings. Today, aim to think up possibilities but don’t bank on them just yet.
SagittariusForward movement with plans or news you’re waiting for can arrive in the weeks ahead, dear Sagittarius, with Mars ending its retrograde cycle that lasted over two months. With Jupiter, your ruler, having just aligned with Pluto, you’re charging up. Friendship or romantic complications tend to iron themselves out. Where there may have been some coolness or confusion, you’ll begin to experience warmth and clarity. In the weeks ahead, you’ll enjoy more leisure time, personal magnetism, and self-confidence. You should see forward movement with creative pursuits and love matters. Ideally, you’ve discovered areas where your approach or methods can do with some improvement, and now you’re ready to make changes. Today, it may be best to observe instead of jump into action as the shift occurs.
CapricornMars ends its retrograde cycle that lasted over two months, dear Capricorn. Recent complications related to family, living conditions, or home life are expected to smooth out. While family life should remain busy, it’s a straightforward kind of “busy” that you can handle. When problems exist, it’s far easier to deal with them when you know exactly what they are. Ideally, any delays you encountered in recent weeks have rerouted you in helpful ways. A venture might pick up the pace, reach a turning point, or resume now. Desires are clearer, and you feel more confident about new launches and new beginnings. You’ll find that people are more direct now, which is refreshing after a period of limbo. Today, ease into things. There is no need to rush as the shift occurs.
AquariusMars ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Aquarius, and pressures ease as you pay less attention to what others are saying and doing. There can be fewer complications with transportation, commuting, communications, and education after Mars spent over two months in retrograde motion in your sector of the mind and communications. You will quite busy but in a far more straightforward way. In other words, you can make measurable progress instead of focusing mainly on fixing problems before moving ahead. It’s easier to tune out all the extra noise going forward. Daily affairs become less chaotic and overwhelming, freeing you up to attend to more worldly goals. Aim to make up for lost time by reconnecting with acquaintances and relatives and saying no to the more frivolous distractions that haven’t served you well. Things that you’ve pushed to the side, ignored, or delayed can seem overwhelming temporarily, but in the coming days and weeks, you’ll get to move these things forward. Blockages are lifting! Take things slowly but surely, and if you find yourself regretting recent decisions, work on fixing them one step at a time.
PiscesIssues that have left you on a fence or waiting for an answer in recent weeks while Mars was retrograde now begin to clear, dear Pisces. Mars turns direct after retrograde motion since September 9th. You’re likely to gain a stronger understanding of your talents, assets, and money situation. You can expect to see more progress with finances and money-making endeavors. Your desires become plainer and clearer, helping decision-making and confidence. While you likely benefited from some slowing down, you may have suffered from some inertia. This shift is indeed good news for an optimistic outlook. Motivation and energy levels build now and this week. Aim to ease into this–keeping two feet on the ground makes sense now.
