Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be some challenges coordinating or balancing your sense of independence with others today, dear Aries. While you may not want to stir up past matters, it can be cleansing to do so with some willingness to grow and move past problem areas. Pluto ends its retrograde cycle today–a yearly event that helps unblock matters related to career, financial, and intimacy matters in your life. Even so, this can be an intense time for happenings in your career and your personal life. Extremes of feeling are likely as the shift occurs this week. But as you grow accustomed to this energy, you’re better positioned to make necessary changes in relationships with a parent or boss or turn around/advance a financial matter. If there is a negative attitude or bad habit that you need to kick, this is the time!
TaurusPluto turns direct today after retrograde motion since May 1st, dear Taurus. Faith in a system or conviction for a particular belief returns, and your desire to explore the world increases in the weeks and months ahead. Your desire to share your ideas and pursue a topic is growing. Problems with a partner or close friend that have been swept under the carpet begin to make themselves known. The good news is that you now feel more able to handle these things, and you’re prepared to make long-lasting improvements. While the shift occurs now, people may be more emotionally reactive than usual. However, you’ll gain clarity on a partnership, travel, educational, legal, or promotional matter going forward. Also today, there may be sidetracking on the job or a minor health matter that interferes with productivity. Fortunately, a positive attitude and the determination to not let the little things get you down will save the day. As the Sun shines the light on vulnerable areas within, there can be initial discomfort but the chance for more self-understanding.
GeminiPluto stations and turns direct today after retrograde motion since May 1st, dear Gemini. In the weeks ahead, you’ll feel more confident and motivated to take charge of your work, daily routines, habits, health, and finances. You are less concerned with whether you’ve made the right choices in the past and more focused on your current path and prospects. You’ll more readily recognize unnecessary elements in your routine or attitudes, making streamlining easier. You may be actively doing research and can apply yourself with increased focus and dedication. The shift today may magnify worries temporarily, but you’ll gain perspective before long. Also today, there are some complications in the social or romantic department. It can be difficult to put complete faith in something or someone just for now, but through this discomfort, you may be able to confront feelings of guilt or insecurity.
CancerPluto stations and turns direct today after over five months of retrograde motion, dear Cancer, and there can be a feeling of a breakthrough with a close relationship. You might come to a decision that has been a long time coming. In the coming weeks, you could be surprised to discover an ally or a newfound faith in someone you already know. You can learn valuable things about someone special in your life, finding new layers to a person or special relationship. More clarity is likely in your love relationships and partnerships. As the shift happens today, you can feel some pressure, or there can be some dramatic feelings or discoveries. Today can be tricky as uncertainty or insecurities about work, career, or life direction can interrupt or obscure your enjoyment of downtime, family, or home life. If something — or someone — touches a nerve, pay particular attention, as this may be exactly what you need to work on to make your life more comfortable, less guilt-ridden, and secure.
LeoPluto stations and turns direct today, dear Leo, after retrograde motion since May 1st. This shift puts you on the verge of some exciting approaches to managing your domestic life, work, and health. A work project or a job can move forward now and in the coming weeks. The motivation to pursue a new or previously shelved health program can return. You’ll be feeling more and more on the ball and empowered. There can be some intensity while the shift occurs now, so don’t rush into anything. Aim to observe and strategize until you grow more accustomed to this energy shift. Another influence today involves the Sun and its opposition to Chiron. You’ve recently discovered a stronger need to reach and branch out more, communicate, and make connections. Today, circumstances might seem to rile you up or dig up buried frustration, particularly related to intelligence, ideas, and beliefs. Communication can frustrate you, but it also helps you see things that need special attention. A release is possible now.
VirgoThe Moon heads into your sign today, dear Virgo, and you’re more interested in the world around you and your place in it. Today’s energies are on the intense side, nevertheless. After its yearly retrograde period, Pluto is turning direct, and this shift helps rebuild your enthusiasm for hobbies, mental interests, projects, studies, and romance in the weeks ahead. It’s a time for applying recent insights about your relationships and pursuits. You’re ready to make essential changes, and it all starts with your can-do attitude and rising motivation levels. Today, during the shift, emotions can be exaggerated or overwhelming, but this is only your way of adjusting to the changes. Also today, the Sun heads toward opposition with Chiron. While you’re paying more attention to stabilizing your life or establishing yourself these days, obstacles to your progress on these fronts can appear now. Transits influencing the day complicate feelings related to ownership or sharing matters. Still, it’s a time to learn from vulnerabilities that you more easily recognize now.
LibraPluto ends its retrograde cycle that lasted over five months, dear Libra. The shift itself can feel a little dramatic, or you can feel pressure as it happens this week. However, things will soon take off, particularly in financial, domestic, and family matters. Your relationships with family and family roles are changing, and your determination to resolve challenges is building. Motivation increases, and take-charge energy is with you. Acknowledge the need to make changes and improvements for best results now, and own it! Home-related projects might unblock or gain momentum. Letting go of something dragging you down may be part of this energy. With a Sun-Chiron opposition also in play today, you may need to address a fear or insecurity before you feel more confident. You may be struggling with feelings related to your relationships, attachments, and sense of independence. However, as you do, you learn more about yourself and problem areas that can benefit from some strengthening.
ScorpioPluto turns direct today after over five months of retrograde motion, dear Scorpio, bringing take-charge energy to your life. Mind you, the shift itself can feel pressured as your ambitions to make changes can initially overwhelm you. As we advance, however, you’ll grow into this state and own it! Issues that have been buried or swept under the rug might emerge now for better handling. You can finally come to a decision or conclusion about something you’ve been stewing over for some time. A project can unblock, or news arrives that pushes your studies or a venture forward. With clarity, both your motivation and energy levels take off. Aim to do a clear-out on a mental level so that you can re-envision your goals. While good energy is generally with you for soul-searching, meditative, and restful activities, you may need to deal with work- or health-related concerns today as the Sun heads into opposition with Chiron. You may be struggling with finding a balance between work and rest, and old problems may re-open. Guilt can undermine your actions, decisions, and relationships, and recognizing this can help you work through issues now.
SagittariusPluto ends its retrograde phase today, dear Sagittarius, and slowly but surely, you’ll be taking charge of your life. This energy is about feeling more empowered to make changes in areas surrounding self-esteem, worth, money, talents, personal belongings, and income. It can be a good time to recognize and work on letting go of automatic behaviors that have kept you from thriving. During the shift itself today and this week, concerns can intensify initially, but they should decrease as you make sense of them. A business or financial matter might unblock or release. A cautious or conservative streak with money and possessions does continue, but you’re aiming to rise above worries. Also today, the Sun is about to oppose Chiron, and you might struggle with whether to go it alone or enlist help on a matter. If you’re confronting a problem that’s emerging again, you might now arrive at a better understanding of yourself and others as you see things in a new light.
CapricornPluto turns direct today after retrograde motion since May 1st, dear Capricorn. Income from a business can spike for some of you. While the shift itself can seem to magnify pressures and ambitions, you’ll feel more in charge of your life once accustomed to this energy. You are less likely to dwell on problems and more likely to take matters into your own hands, take charge of your impulses, and resolve issues in the weeks ahead. Opportunities can emerge to make changes to your friendships that benefit you for some time to come. Also today, there can be some challenges balancing your worldly goals with your personal life, living situation, or family affairs. Do your best to sort out any guilty feelings you may have that are interfering with going after what you want.
AquariusPluto turns direct after over five months of retrograde motion, dear Aquarius, and this augurs well for your career, reputation, and feelings of self-mastery. While the shift itself can be disorienting today and tomorrow, you’ll feel some unblocking this week and the next. You’re less likely to brood and more willing (and feel more equipped) to make changes and improvements. You might revive or renew projects you’ve been working on behind the scenes or shelved. There is a sense of forward, positive, growth-oriented motion. Today, there could be some frustration or suspicion, and thoughts or communications can be extreme or exaggerated until you gain perspective. Today’s energies might also remind you of areas where you feel more vulnerable or burdened. Fortunately, it can motivate you to make important changes.
PiscesPluto turns direct today after its yearly five-month retrograde cycle, dear Pisces. This shift can usher in some forward movement and a stronger sense of being in charge of your life, particularly for educational pursuits, friendships, or group endeavors. During the shift occurring today and this week, do your best to tune into your inner rhythms so that you act rather than react. There is some tendency for extremes of feeling or exaggeration now. From now on, however, you’ll find that uncertainties clear up. Friendships may be intense, but instead of dwelling on problem areas, you are motivated to make necessary changes that bring you closer to resolving long-standing problems. Small changes made now can impact the future in significant ways. New ideas and approaches to your social life can emerge and empower you. Also today, the Sun and Chiron head into opposition, and insecurities or uncertainties rise to the surface, especially related to your income, talents, or what you have to offer. Keep in mind that everyone’s a little sensitive, but also consider that it’s time to address problem areas before they grow bigger.
