Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is strong for sorting out your thoughts and observing what’s going on around you, dear Aries. Still, if you can find a way to get away from it all, even if it’s about exploring an interest or enjoying a diversion, it’s a good idea to do so. Communications happening now can serve to help you center and pace yourself. Another person’s perspective, even if it diverges from yours significantly, tends to enhance your understanding. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Saturn square that can remind you of an area of your life that requires patience. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations with Saturn at the top of your solar chart. However, delays or slowdowns can help you refocus your attention on your priorities, and as you do, you might discover new and improved methods. It’s better to focus on what’s best for you in the long-term rather than go for immediate gratification. If the pressures of others’ expectations weigh on you, consider being clearer about your need for appreciation. People may forget that you need some positive feedback or encouragement from time to time.
TaurusYour instincts are very good for relating today, dear Taurus, and you might successfully address a past matter now. While you might come to a smooth, pleasant agreement with someone today, the Sun is heading toward a square to Saturn, which can bring on the reality of a project or situation. Aim to look for ways to work around roadblocks rather than dwelling on discouragement for too long. This transit can serve as a reminder of rules or practical details that you overlooked in the past. You have a stronger than usual need to express yourself through the work you do or service you provide these days, but today you could feel overburdened or under-appreciated for your efforts. Getting through your responsibilities or work can feel longer and slower now, and it may be best to take things one step at a time and avoid pushing yourself. Timing may be off, but it’s temporary.
GeminiCommunication can help center you and relieve your mind regarding some of your troubles or concerns today, dear Gemini, especially related to health and work. You may very well develop unique methods of doing work, managing health and well-being, and handling chores in the weeks ahead. As today advances, we get closer to a Sun-Saturn square, and if something’s wearing down or showing signs of strain, it may very well break down. With Saturn involved, things usually can be fixed and improved, making it a wise idea to focus on solving problems. There may be discouraging reminders or indicators that a project, plan, dream, or idea needs tweaks, and it’s important not to rush through things. Abide by the rules today for best results since Saturn’s energies don’t favor cutting corners. Filling your heart’s desire may not be straightforward just for now, but you’ll get there with a little work.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Cancer, which can be emotionally freeing in many ways. Look for ways to relieve stress, and pay close attention to communications that might point you in the right direction towards healing. As the day advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that tends to add some strain or worry to the day’s energy. While you’re often inspired by beliefs, ideas, music, and literature these days, you can feel like someone is putting a damper on your plans or is overly critical today. There may be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems necessary to revisit. Things may feel slow and long just for now, but efforts to improve your life, even in small ways, can have a wonderful impact on the future. Keeping things simple can ultimately speed things up, even if it feels that you’re backtracking at the moment.
LeoThe Moon aligns with retrograde Mercury in your sector of home and family, dear Leo, and it’s a strong time for calling up important memories and enjoying some reminisce. It’s a good “ideas” day, particularly about your personal life and long-term plans to boost your security or family feelings. There can be pleasant conversations that soothe and help you center yourself. Still, we’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, reminding you of a constraint or reality and testing whether current plans or endeavors are strong. Responsibilities or problems can seem a little more burdensome now, but it’s a good idea to view any apparent setbacks as opportunities to make changes before moving forward. Through them, you may discover things you’ve overlooked. If you’ve been overdoing your studies or personal interests to the detriment of your work or health, you might now seek a balance or do some catch-up work to get back on track.
VirgoYou can enjoy a buzz of ideas around you today, dear Virgo, but it’s best not to feel pressured to make sense of it all as there are still some missing puzzle pieces. As the Sun heads into a square to Saturn today, obstacles or your responsibilities can seem to magnify, taking on more significance. A roadblock related to a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project can arise or feel difficult to surmount. Even a setback can lead to a positive step concerning long-term happiness, however, as is usually the case with transits involving Saturn. You’re learning to look out for your “future self” and understanding more about what you need in the long run. Others may not be as forthcoming, warm, or expressive, which can feel a little cold but could also allow you enough space to discover resources you may not have known you had.
LibraThe Moon aligns with retrograde Mercury today, dear Libra, inclining you to think and analyze more than usual. Playing around with ideas is an enjoyable, light-hearted experience if there’s no pressure to arrive at a decision or conclusion. You’re in the best shape now if you enjoy what you have rather than urgently seek something new to do. We’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, marking a checkpoint for your goals and plans. More likely than not, this transit is about facing a limit or reality check. Since the Sun is currently in your sign, you may find it challenging to satisfy both your need for independence and desire for security and assurance. You want to pursue your personal goals without feeling you’re letting someone down. Someone may be disapproving, or chores and responsibilities feel more weighty than usual. The key now is to be patient and practice self-discipline, seeking long-term satisfaction rather than instant gratification.
ScorpioYou are attracting well-informed people or people who can offer information that helps you out today, dear Scorpio. Watch for taking on too much. Changes of direction and focus are in store in the coming week, and it makes a lot of sense to clear your head today. Today is strong for organizing your thoughts, enjoying memories, and gaining insight into past events. As the day advances, there can be some hesitation or blockage that temporarily slows you down. While annoying, delays now can be helpful in the long run if they help you see areas that need some refinement. A Sun-Saturn transit tends to magnify flaws temporarily. You can help yourself by adjusting your speed, following rules, exercising patience, and conserving your energy by prioritizing. Avoid pushing things forward for now.
SagittariusCommunications can help you sort things out today, dear Sagittarius, or organizing your thoughts seems particularly worthwhile today. The Moon heads into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, pointing to some need to rest and reflect. As today advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square, and this can be a time for drawing upon some patience and following some rules. You may face an obstacle, which breaks the flow, and limits may seem more glaring or difficult than usual. Even if you want to push something ahead, it may be better to conserve your energy and resources. You may be dealing with people who are grumpy or critical. The best strategy now is to focus on long-term benefits and keep expectations simple. Resign yourself to making edits and adjustments rather than bold moves and remind yourself it’s temporary.
CapricornCommunications can be lively and stimulating, as well as refreshingly open today, dear Capricorn. There is a tendency to bring up the past more so than usual. As long as you allow yourself to go with the flow instead of trying to push the pace, you’ll be in a good emotional place now. As the day advances, we head towards a Sun-Saturn square, reminding you to recommit to your goals or adjust them so that they better suit your purpose. It’s not the ideal time to go against the grain, just for the time being. You could be feeling that you’re being tested, and it’s better to aim to do the best you can and be patient. Look for ways to maximize long-term success or happiness rather than focusing on the short term. Energy levels can be a little low, and if so, take time and get extra rest until strength returns. Backing down is sometimes the better strategy until strength and confidence return.
AquariusToday’s energies are gently stimulating for social and romantic matters, dear Aquarius, although as the day advances, blocks can enter the picture. There can be a chance to learn from past mistakes or to put a problem behind you. Light learning and sharing are favored. Later today, interactions tend to trigger old problem areas as we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that tends to temper your enthusiasm. Slowing down may be useful from time to time, even if it’s a bit frustrating. It may help you get back on track but don’t push this so far that you waste too much time feeling discouraged. It’s important to pick yourself up and focus on solving problems step by step. You might need to revise plans or go back on something you’ve said. If you face limits, the best strategy might be to think about what’s genuinely best for you in the long term rather than the short-term.
PiscesYou’re inclined to do quite a bit of thinking today, dear Pisces. The Moon heads into your solar ninth house for a couple of days, making it a good time to seek ways to excite your mind or satisfy a desire for a small change in routine. Later today, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square, and your social life may fall short of your expectations in some way. However, being left to your own resources can work in your favor right now. It can also be a day for catching your breath and looking for better strategies to pursue your goals. It may instead be a time to consider whether a particular goal or endeavor needs to evolve or dissolve. If you’re off track, this is a time for reorienting yourself. While serious energy can surround a relationship or activity, adjusting expectations as a direct result may be useful. Thinking of this time as a short break from life’s dramas might help.
