Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere’s a tendency to focus on areas of your life that don’t feel under your control today, dear Aries. While tension is likely, triggered areas are revealing. Try to avoid letting pressures rule you. In truth, you’re in an important cycle for awakening to your needs, particularly in your relationships. While the extra attention you’ve given other people in your life is beneficial, overdoing it can lead you to overlook some of your own needs and desires. Worries about rules, achievements, performance benchmarks, or professional matters can dominate. Although you should address your concerns, consider that you may be stressing yourself out unnecessarily. If there are looming problems, aim to make improvements without pressuring yourself. Keep things moderate for the best results. It’s also possible that something communicated can play on your vulnerabilities. Ideally, it leads to a breakthrough in understanding. Still, you may want to step back from any emerging conflict that might occur now just so that you can react more mindfully.
TaurusDifferences in opinion or method can be more frustrating than usual right now, dear Taurus. Worries can also disrupt your daily routines, work, or a general feeling of being on top of things. There is a tendency for you to feel unappreciated or slighted in spots today, or the day may bring an uncomfortable revelation or extra sensitive emotions, particularly regarding work or duties. If problems are brewing related to workload or relationship dynamics, they may come to a head now. Avoid getting caught up in power plays, but consider that triggered spots can reveal areas of your psyche that need extra attention. Take the pressure off, and remember that it’s all too easy to make mountains out of molehills with current transits. If you find yourself in a negative space of regret, aim to focus on those things you can control in your life. For best results, deal with troubles with self-honesty.
GeminiPart of you craves lighthearted, fun connections and projects, dear Gemini, but another part seeks something more profound. Mixed messages can result, and they may be given or received! If you’re holding on to resentments, they might surface in unexpected ways now. Transits can find you feeling a little worried or uncertain, and it’s best to avoid letting it rule your behavior. Instead, aim to take a step back to get perspective. You might be thinking in extremes, undermining your judgment with relationships and money mostly. You can be especially sensitive to imbalances in your social or love life today. It may be that something communicated touches a nerve or sets off your insecurities. It’s important to wait out coming to conclusions–reserve judgment, if possible. A bit of detachment can benefit you at times like these! Aim for balance and moderation for best results right now.
CancerFears or worries can be at the surface today, dear Cancer, and tension emerges if you or someone in your life is holding on too tightly to a belief or method. Whether you’re the one who is trying to control a situation or someone is attempting to control you, the root problem is fear of change, and you may want to nip that in the bud. We may be thinking in extremes or listening too closely to our worries today. Communications and thoughts or memories can open up old emotional issues and challenges. Particularly if you’ve recently brushed aside some of your deeper feelings, you could feel blindsided by others’ comments. Relationships can feel heavy. Still, intense emotions may motivate you to protect your interests more effectively, so aim to connect with them, but take the pressure off to resolve the problem immediately–have patience! Your path is to let go of unnecessary worry and guilt and trust in a larger, more spiritual plan. Learn from trigger points today, as they can point you toward what is most in need of repair and healing.
LeoYou may need to back away from a problem temporarily to let your mind rest and your intuition engage, dear Leo. You could be so attached to your routines and methods that friction occurs with others, or you may be putting quite a bit of pressure on yourself to get too many things done, which can stress you out. Consider, too, that what you or a friend interprets from your communications can be heavily influenced by insecurities. Transits today can magnify worries and perhaps trigger a bit of paranoia. The trick is to be moderate since going overboard can lead to unnecessary pressure. Try not to push yourself too hard! Be sure to avoid making decisions based on mixed perceptions of the moment. Aim to work on those projects that are already in progress or take some downtime.
VirgoThe atmosphere can be charged in spots today, dear Virgo. Worries about money and love can surface, or there may be competing desires for security and excitement, and it can be challenging to satisfy both needs. Worries about finances or complicated power dynamics can be a soft spot, and an eruption of feelings can easily be expressed poorly under current transits! However, whatever emerges now can lead to growth and better understanding. Even if a comment irritates you, it may jumpstart some creative thinking, leading to new insights. Transits can find you on the defensive or can magnify worries and fears temporarily. Attempts to over-control or micromanage people and things can signal that you’re overly attached. Easing this pressure, even a little, can be helpful. Even so, it’s a good time to identify your vulnerable areas and resolve to work on strengthening these areas. It’s best not to push yourself to solve long-standing problems all at once since it’s unrealistic. A step-by-step approach is best. Examine insecurities, as some self-understanding can put you in a stronger position.
LibraTransits can magnify fears or worries, dear Libra. Concerns about personal matters can undermine your confidence, or unresolved issues might emerge from your past, pulling up old hurts and grievances. A disconnect with someone or a feeling you’re not especially appreciated can occur today. Try to avoid putting too much pressure on yourself and resist dwelling on matters that you can’t change–worrying excessively about issues that haven’t happened does you no good. Concerns about your personal or home life can rise to the surface, while you also feel the desire for independence and escape from your responsibilities. Ideally, tensions now help break you away from past negative patterns. Moderate actions are best. In your communications today, consider that you might appear critical or judgmental when you’re merely playing with ideas.
ScorpioReading too much into others’ actions and words can stir up more friction than you need today, dear Scorpio. If you fear the worst, it can be tempting to seek the worst because you don’t want it to take you off guard! Emotional satisfaction comes from genuinely connecting with others deeply; defensiveness or suspicion will not get you any closer to others or yourself. Focus on ways to improve your productivity for best results now. In fact, it may be best to be a little more attentive and vigilant with your work or routines since small worries or fears could interfere with clear thinking later today. If a misunderstanding occurs, try to resolve it quickly and honestly rather than offering lengthy explanations. With Mercury opposite Chiron today, words and actions may be triggering, despite even our best efforts. You’re in good shape for contemplation and behind-the-scenes study or work.
SagittariusTransits pull up buried frustration in spots today, dear Sagittarius. While a little disruptive, it can put you in the right frame of mind to sort things out. Tame the inclination to dwell on the negative elements of your life unless you’re ready to do something about problem areas. You or someone close to you could worry about potential changes, which can be a natural reaction, but talking things through can help settle your mind. With Pluto strong today, we should ask ourselves whether we’re pushing for the truth or just power-tripping! Make plans to improve your life rather than dwell on past mistakes. Find ways to loosen up and relax, and if this means removing yourself from tense situations, do so if you can. It’s a good idea to consider that feelings can be easily hurt by words, and choosing them a little more carefully might save a few problems. With Mercury opposite Chiron, the tendency is for a disconnect between the emotions and intellect. Whether we’re overdoing the logic while ignoring emotional sensibilities, or the opposite, there can be some misunderstandings. If this can’t be avoided, it can turn into an opportunity to better understand yourself and others.
CapricornConcerns about a work project or function can magnify today, dear Capricorn, as the Sun, and later Venus, at the top of your solar chart clash with Pluto in your sign. Watch for regrettable behavior stemming from fears of being out of the loop. While you may be frustrated with people who seem to have an agenda, you have the power to rise above it and focus on doing your best. While you can’t control others, you can control where you put your energies. Aim to go forward with the resolve to manage your life more efficiently. Doubts are possible today, but these can help you to identify weaker areas that can use a bit of strengthening. Another challenging aspect today makes it wise to watch your words and avoid a defensive reaction, even if someone touches a nerve. The best approach is to aim to understand why certain things make you feel uncomfortable and learn from differences.
AquariusThere is some tendency to dwell on past problems or unfinished business today, dear Aquarius, which can weigh you down or dampen your spirit temporarily. Circumstances can reveal where you’ve been overly attached. Ideally, transits now help you identify the steps you can take to free yourself from fear. You may be experiencing difficulties keeping things to yourself, or differing belief systems can trigger buried frustration. Consider that micromanaging or obsessing over a problem is likely to be self-destructive right now. Watch also for processing so much information that you suffer from sensory overload. Aim to detach yourself enough to regain your composure. You are especially attracted to meaningful, unusual, or different topics with Mercury in your solar ninth house these days. While it’s a primarily breezy transit, energies are a bit tricky with communications later today. Take the time if you need it to connect confidently with an opinion or idea. Differences are likely to be glaring just for now, but they can offer learning experiences. It’s an excellent time to see flaws and differences more clearly, opening up a chance to repair problem areas.
PiscesThere’s a real tendency to read too much into a situation today, dear Pisces. Challenges you face now can get you in better touch with your vulnerabilities, so it’s best to take note. Avoid making quick decisions that are more about fear, guilt, or dread than common sense. Still, the illumination of a tricky subject or a buried frustration can emerge. Although it can surface so that you might finally deal with it, it can make you feel irritable. Sorting through the truths and deeper emotions that arise now can be helpful. Find ways to build your sense of self-worth, value, security, and comfort rather than dwell on what’s missing. We tend to overthink and jump to negative conclusions with today’s transits. If people or situations are touching your sore spots, take the opportunity to understand yourself.
