Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEnthusiasm stirred up today can take you far, dear Aries. You want to feel alive and vital, and someone, in particular, can help you do so. The Sun in your partnership sector harmonizes with Mars, your ruler, in your communications sector. It’s a potentially dynamic, energetic time for relationships and mental projects or interests. You’re in good shape to share ideas or iron out differences. This transit favors getting things done and being direct and straightforward. You are especially sharp and have the energy to tackle problems. A chance encounter might spark a new interest. Interactions are fast-paced and may not be incredibly personal or intimate, but it’s a good time to take care of business and get to a quick point or bottom line. Your mood takes on an upbeat, positive quality that endears you to others. You’re quick to tackle problems, and your confidence is infectious.
TaurusYou can be especially passionate, involved, and on the ball, although a bit hurried today, dear Taurus. You have an abundance of common sense with you, even more than usual, but sensitivity may occasionally be lacking in your haste to get things done. You have a more vital understanding of what needs doing to improve your daily life and routines. You’re answering to your inner rhythms and might feel dragged down if you need to wait for others to catch up with you! Feeling especially capable and competent, you might enjoy organizing and attending to the “little things” integral to your routines. Take advantage of this by applying yourself to something constructive. You might enjoy some healthy competition that pushes you to new heights, and it feels good to rise to a challenge, especially one of your own making!
GeminiYour ideas and impulses are creative, dear Gemini, and you’re both motivated and confident right now. There is a dramatic and competitive touch to what you do today with Mars in your sign and in harmony with the Sun in your creative sector. It’s a fine time to enjoy or win a competition. You could find it particularly rewarding to make changes to a relationship or pursue a hobby or special project/pastime. In less than two weeks, Mars will retrograde in your sign, and you will likely reevaluate your current pursuits or desires. However, for now, a direct approach works wonders. You may be itching to get something done or implement an idea. You have an urge to sink your teeth into something challenging and exciting.
CancerThis can be a time for being active, attending to business, and taking steps to reduce stress, dear Cancer. Efforts made around the home, with domestic projects, and concerning activities with family can lead to notable advances. Your energy flows well, particularly in your emotional world! You might make a sudden decision to rearrange your current living setup, or you can fill with enthusiasm and a strong desire to take action that improves your personal life. You’re ready to solve problems, and while you have more motivation to do so, you may want to avoid rushing people and situations. Good things can come from minor tension today, as it may be just what you need to handle matters that need attention. Excellent energy is with you today for courageously dealing with emotional or tricky areas and putting annoying situations behind you.
LeoYou’re in good shape to pursue your interests and exchange ideas, dear Leo. While people can be extra sensitive today, a Sun-Mars transit tends to keep you looking ahead. You’re in a primarily positive, action-oriented frame of mind, and in fact, your sign is at the midpoint of these bodies, and you can feel very supported and confident! You feel very directed and purposeful, and specific plans or topics excite you now. Life is taking a creative, more forward-looking energy. Intellectual matters can thrive. You are soaking up a tremendous amount of information, and you could be in the position to teach, guide, or instruct. There is a strong feeling of aliveness and freshness to the day. Try to avoid rushing your communications, which can be quite terse if you’re not careful, but tap into the day’s enthusiasm.
VirgoYou’re feeling productive, dear Virgo, with a Sun-Mars aspect today. Workable solutions to problems tend to come intuitively. There could be an answer to a money issue, or you’re motivated to improve your situation. Ideas are progressive and exciting, and conversations, although rough around the edges, are animated, and you may consider them learning experiences. You fall into a leading role quite organically. It’s a fine time for career connections, income boosts, and taking action to move projects forward. You are unafraid to take small risks or throw more of your energy into a project or venture. Gentle competition encourages you to shine. Still, there can be misunderstandings or awkwardness in social situations to navigate.
LibraWhile there can be some restlessness to manage, dear Libra, energies today are largely future-oriented and upbeat. It may feel like life is speeding up enough to embolden you or pull you out of a funk. You could be in the position to teach, guide, or instruct others. It’s a good day for drawing upon your intuition to construct ideas and plans. You crave movement and action and bring your individuality and creativity to anything you do. You feel pretty brave today, particularly when expressing your ideas and personality. It’s a good time to socialize, make connections, communicate, and enjoy creative pastimes. However, consider that people can be sensitive, and there is some tendency to misrepresent your feelings.
ScorpioYou’re confident about a new idea or project today, dear Scorpio. While decision-making tends to be a lengthier process for you these days, you’re feeling more energetic and ready to take on a challenge or put a problem behind you. The Sun and Mars harmonize in the hidden sectors of your chart, exciting you about resolving an emotional or private matter. Instead, there can be an exciting intimate encounter or discovery. Someone could be admiring you for going after what you want without apology. An intense discussion about your past or private matters may be part of the picture. It’s an excellent time to cut through appearances and uncover something previously unknown or hidden. People are looking forward but not necessarily tactful, which should be kept in mind. Even though you’re feeling passionate about a matter, it’s all too easy to rub someone the wrong way.
SagittariusYou want to get in on the action and produce results today, dear Sagittarius. Life is busy, primarily because you’re making things happen. Connections are stimulating, particularly with friends, associates, or a partner. It comes more naturally to arrive at the bottom line. It may seem that the more you open your heart and accept the need for others, the better life gets right now as the Sun in your social sector harmonizes with Mars in your partnership zone. Relationships may be a motivator that gets you going, or you are in the perfect position to collaborate. You can experience intense but pleasant attractions. Healthy competition can fuel the desire to do your best. Still, people tend to require more care and sensitivity today, and there’s some propensity for misunderstandings or hurt feelings.
CapricornYou enjoy high energy and confidence today, dear Capricorn. It’s a good time for work-related matters with harmonious connections between your work and health sector and career and reputation zone. It’s a creative, energetic, and motivating time for your work, routines, and long-term goals. Putting your practical affairs together comes readily. Responsibilities to others are also in the spotlight, but you have a solid sense that you can fulfill them, and it’s satisfying. Lifestyle changes are a little easier to make right now. Still, some matters require kid gloves today, and it’s best to watch for unnecessary brusqueness in your excitement to get things done.
AquariusYou can feel incredibly motivated to share ideas with others today, dear Aquarius, and you seem to have energy to spare. Your personal life may be heating up with a Sun-Mars transit stimulating your need for adventure. You’re spirited and self-expressive, and you might embark on an adventure that gets the adrenaline pumping. Romantic prospects are good, although, in the coming months, you might be refining your approach to getting what (and who) you want with Mars soon turning retrograde. For the time being, a direct approach works. You are unusually open to widening your perspective and experiences.
PiscesYou’re psyched up to put a problem behind you today, dear Pisces, and you’re ready to take care of your priorities. You can be quite moved to make a decision or to put an idea into action as the Sun forms a trine to Mars. Work on or around the house can be especially productive, as matters seem to flow naturally and interference is minimal with this transit boosting stamina and confidence levels. Motivation is strong. This is a good day for living in the moment–putting plans aside and allowing yourself some time off from overthinking can be beneficial. Your emotional life is animated and energizing, and it’s easier than usual to decide on a course of action.
