Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA Venus-Mars opposition influencing the first half of the day can stir some tension, dear Aries. You don’t seem to be on the same page as someone, or you are, but the timing is completely off. What you have or haven’t done might be a point of contention for someone in your life. Perhaps a partner is hoping you’ll intuit what they truly want. There can be volatile feelings, which can be a symptom of not being in touch with genuine needs and wants. You can learn a lot about yourself from whatever is easily triggered today. Avoid reacting with defensiveness and aim to draw on patience. This comes more easily as the day advances. It’s natural to release tensions and focus on gaining some insight into your inner world. Activities that feed your imagination and sense of mystery or magic can be therapeutic. Inspiration may come from a private moment with someone, or from within yourself, as your faith in a situation blossoms.
TaurusIn the first half of the day, you might want to watch for impulsive moves, dear Taurus, as they’re more likely to be memorable and to have a long-term impact. You may unwittingly block your progress with your actions now, so do think twice. Focusing on past actions can get you into a bit of a jam, and restlessness is likely, and yet you may be feeling a tad lazy or lacking in energy to do anything about it. Wait things out before drawing conclusions. As the day advances, it may be best to approach the world in a more relaxed, creative way. While this doesn’t come especially easily this morning, it becomes quite natural as the day advances. A gentle spirit of acceptance or support in your relationships is heartwarming. It’s better to listen, share, and heal rather than push or probe.
GeminiRhythms in love and patterns in relating can be off and on in the first half of the day, dear Gemini, leaving it difficult to find satisfaction. There can be awkward moments in your relationships, and feelings can run hot and cold. Conflicts arising now can have a significant impact since Mars is retrograde and close to a station. It may be best to watch for haughty or impulsive decision-making and premature reactions. Consider that we may be taking things too personally. As the day advances, you have a stronger appreciation of your surroundings and relationships. The spiritual, artistic, and emotional side of your life assumes increasing importance. It’s a good time to back away from a problem to get perspective, and to pay special attention to your non-material needs.
CancerThere can be off-timing and impatience in your relationships in the first half of today, dear Cancer, as Venus opposes retrograde Mars. The social side of business or work can be complicated now. You could be stewing in old anger or past problems, impacting the present. Give of yourself until you meet the halfway point, or to the point at which you still feel comfortable, to avoid feeling resentment. It’s not the best to go over the top or react too quickly. As the day advances, it feels easy to draw on patience. Sharing a dream, ideal, or belief with someone can enhance your connection. Look for ways to reconnect with those activities that nourish your spirit and encourage expressing yourself more freely.
LeoThis morning, others may seem to be slowing you down or acting possessive of you, dear Leo. Your heart may be ruling your head at this time, and wants and needs can seem like the same thing. Differences in opinion can lead to arguments readily in the first half of the day. Others may not be catching on to your way of thinking. It may be too easy to become aggravated if people around you are not moving at your speed, making it better for activities that allow you to set your own pace. You may want to leave practical matters for a better, clearer day. As the day advances, your mood evens out, and you may even feel quite inspired. You can use both your head and heart to make the right decisions, or even better, let things flow and happen, releasing pressures to make decisions or conclusions. It becomes quite natural to express yourself in supportive and caring ways. There’s much to enjoy and even savor regarding your interests or projects. Matters related to real estate, family, and the home tend to work out in your favor. You might discover a good reason for letting go of a grudge or frustration.
VirgoIn the first half of the day, you may discover that something you haven’t done in the past is now coming back to your attention, dear Virgo. A missed opportunity may be frustrating, but it can also steer you on a course towards better managing your resources. If you haven’t felt valued or respected, you may now react and reach a boiling point. It may be best to wait until you have a cooler head to make important decisions. The Moon enters your sign today, further engaging and exciting your feelings. As the day advances, however, moods even out. It’s a good time to seek activities that engage both your head and heart. You might especially enjoy relaxing, earthy, and grounding activities or taking care of pet projects. Faith, imagination, and spirit come full bloom. While a practical approach to your world often comes most naturally to you, the day’s energies favor stepping back from problems just a little so that you can gain some perspective. It’s a time for enjoying the natural rhythm of things. It’s quite possible that your words or gestures may charm and delight someone.
LibraThe first half of the day is influenced by a Venus-Mars opposition, dear Libra, suggesting a possible disagreement or lack of understanding with a significant someone. Cupid’s arrows may be flying in the wrong directions today. What someone is or, more likely isn’t, doing can be frustrating. If so, try not to let this drain you. Relationships can be conflicted but also hold valuable lessons now. Or, you’re seeking peace and balance, but you feel thrown off by things left up in the air. As the day advances, however, it’s far easier to let go of tension and focus on going with the flow. You seem to gravitate to just the right resources or connections you need. Pay particular attention to your needs for more imagination, gentleness, romance, or nuance in your life and nurture them. You may be following a hunch when it comes to money, work, or health matters.
ScorpioIn the first half of the day, there can be some continued tensions, dear Scorpio. Someone may take issue with you if you’ve been on the fence about a topic or if you’ve been stalling. It may be hard to see eye-to-eye, and desires are likely intense, but they may also temporarily lead you astray. Frustrations with routines and work can be prominent, particularly as you crave more time to yourself to sort out your feelings. Emotions can bubble to the surface at unexpected moments. Sensitive information or hidden desires may be revealed, steering you on a different course. As the day advances, it becomes far easier–and quite natural–to center yourself. You might shed some emotional baggage, and while your creative and romantic impulses are strong, you’re also finding some joy in quiet and private moments. Leaving things a little open and uncertain can feel freeing right now in a relationship. You might gravitate towards activities that promote spiritual wellness and growth, and like-minded people tend to make their way to you.
SagittariusThis morning’s transits stir and stimulate passions, dear Sagittarius. You might want to avoid making a stand or show right now, as you may regret it later when your head is clearer, but aim to learn from conflicts and disagreements. Instead, inner frustrations can emerge if current situations don’t satisfy your deeper needs or if you’re unable to get on the same page with the one you want. Seek activities that fire up passion for true emotional fulfillment. While things that are left undone or hanging may bother you, as the day advances, you’re less likely to harp on them. You’re particularly fascinated with the past, the mysterious, and the hidden. You may find support for your needs for privacy and emotional renewal, or quiet activities with others can be satisfying. Withdrawing just a little is just fine and can be useful now, but try not to close all doors so that you can thoroughly enjoy the accepting, easy flow of energy around you.
CapricornA Venus-Mars opposition influencing the first half of today can point to quick tempers, dear Capricorn. There can be impatient or immature reactions to delays. Passions run high, but satisfying your desires may not be straightforward for the time being. You might want to avoid stirring the pot until you know where you truly stand on an issue, as things can escalate quickly at this time. It’s hard to be indifferent towards others, but it can be emotionally freeing to do so from time to time if tensions interfere with success and happiness. Consider being kinder to yourself by looking the other way when it is appropriate to do so. This may also be a time when tension or hyperactivity in your personal life can disrupt your public life, work, or performance. These issues can be easy to let go of as the day progresses as the Sun heads into harmony with Neptune. Communications or friendship and camaraderie can set things right in your world now. You might choose to see differences with people as engaging and interesting rather than annoying, and this allows you to relax and enjoy yourself more than usual. It’s a fine time to set aside personal agendas and reach out to others only for the sake of getting in touch.
AquariusTransits coloring the first half of the day can produce some provocative energy around you, dear Aquarius. There’s a real tendency to react too quickly. Somebody can cross boundaries, and it can be a little tricky getting to the point of compromise, but it’s far from impossible. It may take quite a bit of back and forth to arrive at a middle ground. Wanting more than can be provided from one another can be resolved only by changing our expectations or mustering up patience. Mental or intellectual exchanges seem to spark strong feelings or attractions and aversions. You might rediscover a desire or passion that you left behind. The second half of the day is likely to unfold far more smoothly. Slowing down and a small level of hesitation can help you find yourself, in fact. Your intuition may draw you to the right resources for moving your goals forward as the Sun and Neptune head into harmony. Increased faith in your talents and your value leads to positive developments.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, someone may not be budging, dear Pisces, whether this is due to stubbornness or indecision. Buried passions and desires can emerge, but pursuing them may not be a straightforward matter–not yet, anyway. Boundaries can be pushed, and possessiveness or competitiveness can be strong themes. You could feel on the fence emotionally, and you could too easily concentrate on things that have been lost or buried. It’s best to tone things down and seek out a compromise. Ultimately, you are likely to get to a plan that makes sense. For now, it’s about discovery, and it can be a little disruptive. Avoid emotionalism when it comes to controversial topics, including money. As the day advances, it’s easier to let things unfold rather than make sudden or bold moves. Your intuitive feelers are working very well today. You’re attracted to endeavors that take you outside of your usual routine or that broaden your thinking. You can feel especially inspired by a topic or idea as the Sun heads into harmony with Neptune in your sign.
