Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun and retrograde Mars form a quincunx, highlighting different drives today, dear Aries, stirring some restlessness or indecision. Part of you wants to dig deep and gain more intimacy, and another part prefers to skim the surface of things and keep things light. This can confuse others and frustrate you! Look for ways to channel excess energy constructively. You may not find a balance, but avoid thinking it has to be one or the other. Inspiration comes more easily when your temper evens out. Helping you with this are Jupiter transits that stir your need to grow and improve. You might gain some peace with the past or with your deeper wishes and desires. Extending help or support may be in focus, and it’s rewarding. A spirit of openness, even if it’s only with yourself, can be helpful now, leading to breakthrough insights. A pleasant surprise or coincidence may be part of your day, bringing extra fun and joy to your world. You might put your faith or trust in someone, which feels good! Certainly, letting go of the negative energy of mistrust can be therapeutic.
TaurusToday’s Sun-Mars quincunx aspect can highlight different drives, dear Taurus, and tensions are possible. You might focus on what’s not working rather than what is, which can work out in moderation, but taken too far, it becomes counter-productive. Develop strategies if a direct route to your desires is not working or seems impossible. Fortunately, it’s a generally excellent time for releasing a burden or healing a grievance. Jupiter’s connections encourage an optimistic, hopeful, and generous approach with others. Treating a partner as a real equal is favored and has great rewards. Others are putting their faith in you, and this, in turn, motivates you to step up your game even further! Group activities and associations could be avenues for fulfilling your goals.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Mars quincunx can present a clash between what you want and your energy levels, dear Gemini. Try to relax and don’t push things that are better left to run their natural course. On the one hand, you may want to strike out on your own and leave plans open, and on the other, there is a strong desire or need to take care of your routines. You can spend far too much time in limbo when it may be best to do both in moderate ways. With Mars in your sign and retrograde, what you truly want is often obscure! Fortunately, good energy is with you for enjoying your work and perhaps some recognition of your efforts or performance. You may fully enjoy helping someone out, or your generosity and above-board approach win you some positive attention. You also feel great about it. If you provide services, you’re in a great position to receive positive feedback. You’re enjoying optimism about your career or general life direction, and coming up with new and exciting ideas for future plans can be a pleasant pastime today. Meaningful work is a real possibility now.
CancerToday’s Sun-Mars minor challenge suggests some impatience, dear Cancer. If you’re returning to a problem, it’s probably for a reason, but if answers are not evident, be patient with yourself. Part of you is especially focused on the past or your inner world, and you’re not always emotionally present, which can lead to conflicts or misunderstandings. Fortunately, booster transits help you find ways to heal, whether this is your mind or body. You’re in a favorable position for romance, adventure, learning, transportation, communications, and creativity. You’re thoroughly enjoying expressing yourself and leaving your unique stamp on whatever you do. Your powers of attraction today lie in your ability to rise above petty concerns and see the bigger picture. You’re seeking a little more adventure and freedom, which can expand your options to enjoy yourself. Your feelings for someone can expand and grow, and a person who’s holding a torch for you may express their appreciation. Writing and learning flow well today.
LeoToday’s Sun-Mars aspect needs to make it easier to coordinate things in spots, dear Leo. At the heart of tensions are competing needs for attention to family, home, or personal matters and needs for some impartiality and pressure-free socializing. Sticking with familiar things, people, and situations is important these days with an emphasis on your home and sector. However, gaining a little more freedom, new horizons, and different experiences can be strong draws. If you’re on the fence and unable to find a straightforward solution, tensions and irritability can emerge. Aim to be mindful rather than ruled by frustrations. Fortunately, transits also help you find resolutions to matters that have been causing you some amount of stress or distress. You are ready to take steps to improve a situation. You can feel inspired by your deeper connections with a person or project, private matters, family connections, and realizations or discoveries about psychological issues. You might thoroughly enjoy a good mystery, digging deeper into a case, or investigating a topic further. This can also be a time for breaking through walls or taboos, practicing forgiveness, and releasing or sharing a burden. If you need support, it’s a generally good time to attract it, including money for home- or family-related pursuits.
VirgoWith the Sun and Mars forming an awkward angle today, dear Virgo, inner tensions about where to direct your energy can stir up some irritability. Protect your interests, but aim to recognize when you need to let go or walk away if others push your buttons. When goals and projects stall, it can be frustrating, but delays can also serve you well in the long term, giving you the time to rework or rethink matters to your advantage. The direction you need to take may be unclear at the moment, so concentrate on what you do best and keep working hard at it. Fortunately, wonderful transits help round out the day. You may need to release frustration now, and great energy is with you for doing so! It’s also a prime day for learning more about the people in your life and enjoying and appreciating a special person. Partnering or pairing up is favored. You might discover new and more satisfying ways to express yourself. Whether this is a project, personal writing, or a connection, you want to expand and grow.
LibraToday’s Sun-Mars quincunx can highlight very different drives, dear Libra. Temporarily, it may seem like more work to integrate them. The Sun, as it transits your solar second house, tends to keep you focused on building comfort and security. On the other hand, Mars in your adventure sector pushes an utterly different button, stirring up big needs, plans, and desires that have nothing to do with routine and stability. You may be able to satisfy both needs in moderate ways with a little creativity now. Lucky transits are also in play, and a winning attitude attracts positive circumstances, particularly related to work and business. Ideas are big, and the social side of a situation is a strong appeal. You are motivated to make your daily life better. You can see what has been blocking you in the past and how your efforts contribute to increased income right now–it’s satisfying. Your appetite for pleasure is very strong.
ScorpioToday’s minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Mars requires some flexibility, dear Scorpio. An unusual desire, whim, impulse, or attraction may be calling you, and restlessness can set in, as much as you’d prefer some predictability. It’s likely very transitory and temporary, and aiming for moderation can help you sidestep a state of vague frustration. As well, booster transits are in play, and attention turns to your most appealing qualities–people see you in a most favorable light, making it a powerful time to gain someone’s trust or favor. You’re likely to stumble upon opportunities for cooperation and shared happiness. Creative or romantic matters can thrive. You’re expressing yourself in playful, fun, and attractive ways. Discovering a new passion, interest, hobby, or love may be in focus now.
SagittariusToday’s Sun-Mars quincunx suggests slight feelings of imbalance, dear Sagittarius. Taking the high road and lifting yourself above needless arguments and defensive stances can benefit you greatly. Patience and tact will go a long way toward a satisfying day. Avoid stressing over the little things! Delays can be frustrating but also give you time to think things through. Fortunately, Jupiter transits are also in play, and they happen in the sectors of your chart that rule your emotional or private life. The comforts of home and family or solitude are especially pleasant and heartwarming. You’re also feeling more comfortable in your own skin. There can be good advice or friendly news circulating now. An open mind and heart help you grow and understand yourself and your personal relationships. Good work prospects are possible, and coming to someone’s aid can be rewarding.
CapricornToday’s minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Mars can point to competing interests and moods, dear Capricorn, mainly because a good part of you wants to socialize, and the other part wants to get back on track and organized. Do your best to be patient through disagreements and keep a professional attitude for best results. Some projects may be stalling, but you might also get a chance to rework projects that require fine-tuning. Fortunately, booster planets put you in a fantastic position to brainstorm, team up, collaborate, and share ideas and plans, perhaps making them better or simply enjoying the process. You’re still in need of some time to sort things out, but optimism is with you. Your generosity and openness attract positive attention. You might discover ways to spiff up something from your past, and this can be a project or even a friendship.
AquariusThere are competing energies that can stir up some tension today, dear Aquarius. A romance or creative project may require more attention now, or it may not be moving at the speed you’d like. However, the drive to produce and perform is strong, and it takes work to coordinate all that’s going on or that you want to achieve. Irritable or tense behavior can emerge if you have too much on your plate. Your best bet is to be moderate on both fronts, dividing your time. You might not see a direct route to your desires, but exercising patience will help reveal a channel. Booster transits occurring now can help–you can feel encouraged about someone. You are giving others and situations the benefit of the doubt. You might benefit from a gift or enjoy giving to someone, and this feels great. You want to enjoy what you have, perhaps indulge a little, and get comfortable, but it’s also a wonderful time for growing a business, bank account, or idea. Splurging is fun but reinvesting in something you care about can be exciting as well. Generosity and taking the high road bring rewards now, particularly in business or with your career.
PiscesIt’s not easy integrating different life departments today, dear Pisces, but this is temporary. Acting out or reacting blindly can only serve to aggravate matters. A Sun-Mars quincunx makes a clear decision or plan of action difficult. The Sun in your spirit sector encourages you to set your sights high and push your usual bounds these days, but Mars in your home and family sector presents a drive to stay close to home and pursue goals that make you feel more secure. This dilemma can feel stronger today. Your desires and agenda are pulling you in different directions, causing some tension, and leaving you on edge until you find a compromise. The solution may not be around the corner, but there are workarounds. Fortunately, sharing ideas and experiences with others can be fulfilling. Benefits come from reaching out and pushing yourself a little out of your comfort zone now. Your ability to take things as they come is attractive, and your positive attitude tends to attract attention. If you need to put a grudge behind you, the day is most excellent for doing so.
