Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars is at odds with Saturn today, dear Aries, and there can be a hurdle to clear. Your timing might be off as you struggle with whether to go forward with a project or pursue a desire. Pacing yourself may be precisely what you need at this point. 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 be better to work things out in your head since people are not exceptionally responsive or yielding under today’s transits. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and the desire for familiar and comfortable situations and settings is strong. As the day advances, your mood tends to even out.
TaurusDesires run more deeply than usual or seem a little more complicated now with Mars transiting your intimacy sector until just after the new year, dear Taurus. You tend to go all in or not at all! With Mars challenged by Saturn today, desire comes up against reason or practicality. With this tricky aspect in play, avoid pushing something forward that needs more time to develop. Disapproval or coolness from someone can frustrate you now. Still, you might get to take something useful away from the experience if it prompts you to second-guess whether you’ve been gunning too hard for something that would do better with improved pacing. Aim to nip impatience in the bud! Power politics can be stirring in a close one-to-one relationship, but do consider that what might seem a slight from a friend today may only be a miscommunication. With the Moon in your sign all day, attention to your emotional needs is appropriate now, and it gets more straightforward as the day advances.
GeminiMars moves into a challenging square to Saturn today, dear Gemini, which can bring a limitation or responsibility to your attention. If you’ve been moving too fast, this influence can slow you down and remind you to pace yourself. Timing can be off in your interactions just for now. For example, one of you is all fired up, and the other is in a calmer or cooler frame of mind. You could get a sobering reminder of rules or limits, but this also gives you the time to make valuable edits and adjustments. Today is not the best time to ask for a favor since others are not particularly receptive. There can be disapproval about long-term goals or a sense that someone is standing in the way of your ambitions temporarily. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, stirring up the need to rest and relax more. Listen to these cues!
CancerWhile you have more initiative and energy for work projects and can apply yourself with more vigor with the new Mars cycle, dear Cancer, there can be blocks to your goals today as Mars and Saturn are at odds. Some irritability is likely as plans seem thwarted. Issues that cause you anxiety or guilt can undermine your productivity now, but avoid letting these take over to the point that your interactions with others are tense. A game plan can help you channel your energy more effectively, and it makes sense to draw one up now. This is a time when being a little more thorough than usual brings rewards. Later on, you’ll be thankful you paid attention to the details! Today, aim to slow down. The Moon spends the day in your sector of hopes and wishes, and your sense of community increases. Your social life grabs your attention, and networking stirs you–something that feels better and better as the day advances.
LeoToday, Mars is challenged by Saturn, dear Leo, and there can be some frustration if you are trying to push something that needs more time to play out. There may be some stiffness in your interactions or off-timing, likely due to insecurities, guilt, or nerves. You might wonder how someone feels about you or how deep a commitment is. A creative pursuit or a relationship can reach a temporary impasse, or there can be a reality check to deal with now. Aim to muster up patience–waiting things out and pacing yourself makes the most sense now. 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. The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, drawing your attention to your broader goals, which can pull your mood together as the day advances.
VirgoEnergetic Mars has just begun its transit your solar fourth house, dear Virgo, animating your home or personal life. Today, a relationship may hit a roadblock or an impasse, but it’s temporary. Avoid taking out your frustrations on the innocent! Consider ways to better manage both family or your personal life and partnerships if they’re clashing now. With Mars and Saturn forming a square this morning, you may want to watch for a defensive attitude, as this can lead to conflicts you don’t need now. You could be feeling especially protective of who and what you love. If someone is overruling you for no reason, it’s time to stand your ground. However, consider that we’re all a little sensitive this morning. The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, encouraging a fresh perspective, which is much easier to tap into as the day advances. A breath of fresh air or change in the routine is in order.
LibraWith a Mars-Saturn square today, watch your words, as frustrations can lead to harsh communications that are hard to “unhear” or take back, dear Libra. There may be blocks to getting your message across or getting from one place to another without incident! Responsibilities can limit your studies and personal interests temporarily, and they may serve as a reminder to slow down and find better ways of getting your work done. Do watch for impatience while going about your uday. There can be some frustrations with people beating around the bush, but it may be best to take time to arrive at conclusions. As the day progresses, tensions begin to ease, particularly if you consciously try to slow down. The Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, intensifying feelings. Your desires feel easier to fulfill later today, largely because you’re better in touch with them.
ScorpioWith Mars now in your solar second house, dear Scorpio, it’s generally a good time to find new ways to boost your feelings of security and comfort. Today, however, Mars forms a square to Saturn, pointing to a temporary block, possibly a creative one. Aim to learn from whatever conflict or difference you experience today since this transit reminds us of our limitations. Remember that disagreements about money, how you use your resources, or sharing tasks can sometimes mask more deep-seated problems. You may feel the need to defend yourself or prove your worth. Your feelings can easily be hurt, especially regarding finances, love, or if your personality is called into question. If you’ve been going too hard with spending or indulgence, there can be a reminder or reality check to respect your limits now. It’s helpful to have a reality check occasionally, but it’s not always fun when it does happen. As the day advances, it’s far easier to unwind and either agree to disagree or let certain problems go.
SagittariusMars has been pumping you up and filling you with more courage than usual, dear Sagittarius. You’re more intense than usual, and perhaps quite desirous! Still, with a Mars-Saturn conflict today, circumstances may remind you to slow down if you’ve been going too hard. While you may be all fired up about pursuing something, others or situations may stand in your way, or people in your life appear unyielding and not very sympathetic to your cause! Routine domestic tasks are harder to take right now. Even so, 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. With the Moon in your work and health sector all day, the need for a little more order in your everyday affairs is strong.
CapricornAssertive, energetic Mars has just recently retreated into your privacy sector, dear Capricorn, and will continue to transit this part of your solar chart until the new year. It’s a period of reassessing your goals, needs, and desires. You’re discovering what you truly desire and which pursuits may not be as worthwhile for you. Today, however, with Mars in a square aspect to Saturn, uncertainty about whether you should or shouldn’t take action on a matter can cause some mental distress, and it’s probably better to wait for a more confident time to move ahead, mainly since others may be unsympathetic or distant temporarily. It can be difficult to find the chance to express yourself just for now. An obstacle or bump in the road may temporarily delay a pursuit. If others are complaining that you’re not as sociable or accessible, you could be feeling a little guilty about it — or frustrated that they don’t understand you. Any delays now can be a blessing in disguise, however, as you may need to slow down or make some edits. Nevertheless, watch for self-defeating behavior today. The day evens out as it progresses, and the Moon in your recreation sector helps you find your joy.
AquariusEnergetic and assertive Mars enlivens your social life or happiness goals, dear Aquarius. Today, however, Mars in this sector of your chart is challenged by Saturn, and 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 impeded your social life or long-term goals, you’ll feel the tension now. Restructuring, organizing, and budgeting may be in order now. Look for ways that can help you feel more in control and back on track. If you’re frustrated with an inability to rely on others today, try going your own way instead of pushing things, as you could end up quite comfortable with working independently for now! The Moon spends the day in your home and family sector, emphasizing your needs for comfort and familiarity.
PiscesWith Mars enlivening your sector of career and reputation, you may be pumping yourself up professionally, dear Pisces. You’re taking the lead and initiative more often and pursuing your ambitions directly and with vigor. However, with Mars square Saturn today, you may feel you’re left to your own resources. If you’ve been pushing too hard or going overboard recently, particularly with work or pursuing your goals, you may meet with resistance. Personal responsibilities could distract you from your objectives and 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. This is not to say you shouldn’t challenge yourself at this time, as you should, but that some things require a softer touch. Aim to concentrate on what you’re doing, what makes you happy, and what works for you rather than concerning yourself with what others are or aren’t doing. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, however, and this piques your curiosity. As the day advances, you’re in the mood to socialize and make light, easy contact.
