Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhat’s beneath the surface or hidden from sight is most intriguing to you today, dear Aries, but mental intensity is possible as you attempt to make sense of a problem. The tendency to worry about your work, performance, or achievements can interfere in other life departments, most notably in your relationships. It’s especially the case if you’ve been feeling others don’t truly understand your concerns and goals. The chances are high that you’re stressing yourself out unnecessarily or that if there are looming problems, you’re better off working on making changes and improvements rather than stressing out. Even so, keep in mind that people are on edge in general right now, so don’t be surprised if you end up keeping your own counsel until things calm down. Watch for a possible obsession with an idea, problem, or line of thought that doesn’t serve you well. Try your best to get over attitudes or thought patterns that are too negative to do you any good.
TaurusTensions can emerge over differences in methods, approaches, and opinions today, dear Taurus, possibly disrupting your job or daily routines. Something communicated can get to you, but it’s probably best not to react as it’s a no-win situation. Words can bite today with Pluto active and challenged, yet everyone seems to want to express themselves! If problems have been brewing under the surface of things in your relationships or regarding workloads, they’re likely to erupt now. Avoid getting caught in power plays. Sore spots can be revealing, however, since they’re areas of your psyche that need extra attention. Take the pressure off, as you may be making mountains out of molehills at the moment. Or, harness the energy to think up solutions to ongoing problems.
GeminiEven with old issues resurfacing, a new talk about these matters is not the best idea, dear Gemini, as it may very well run in circles under today’s transits. Look for patterns that no longer serve your better interests, and resolve to address them later when people aren’t as moody as they can be now. Your desire to go your own way and to do your own thing is compelling right now, but you could also fear leaving something or someone alone. It will be important not to act out due to this inner tension. There can be a struggle between the desire for lighthearted, fun connections and a longing for something deeper. Mixed messages are given and received today, and they’re hard to make sense of! If you’re holding onto resentment, this can come up to the surface in disruptive ways. Consider that the tendency is to think in extremes temporarily and, as such, your judgment may be a little off regarding financial and love matters. Take a step back to observe where you could use a little detachment or cooling off before making big decisions.
CancerToday’s transits are tricky, dear Cancer, and it’s not an ideal time for getting advice or listening to your own worries regarding a relationship. You may be at a loss when it comes to understanding the motivations behind someone’s actions, words, or disinterest. It may be better to enjoy a sense of autonomy for the time being, aiming to circle back to issues on a day when people are more self-aware or objective. For now, we can be hypersensitive. You may feel pressed to decide a matter, or you may be making a huge deal of an issue that hasn’t yet happened. This is due to Pluto’s influence on Mercury and the Sun, leading us to think and possibly act in extremes. However, the conundrum could be helpful if it stimulates you to better protect your interests, so allow yourself to feel it, but take the pressure off to resolve the problem immediately. Do watch for people playing mind games now, and consider that there can be strings attached if you go a certain way. You don’t have to be paranoid with others, but you may want to wait to make big moves until you feel calmer and more composed.
LeoMental pressures can be intense at times today, dear Leo, but it’s best not to rush things under this mindset. The atmosphere can be on the charged side, with your ruler, the Sun, and Mercury coming up against Pluto. Power games may happen, particularly with people who share your daily schedules, work, or routines, or pressures to get things done can be unrelenting. Still, some of this pressure may come from within and may be excessive, as you can think in extremes under the influence of these transits. You can be so attached to your routines and methods that you clash with others. Try not to push yourself too hard. Save topics that require a soft touch for another day, as words can be harsh before you gain perspective. These transits can produce a bit of paranoia or play on worries and fears, but you might try channeling this intensity into something beneficial or productive.
VirgoThere is a tendency to dwell on problems or flaws today, dear Virgo, with Pluto in the spotlight and challenging. It’s best to watch for extremes with money and relationships, in particular, and with thoughts or conversations, generally speaking. People can seem to drain you materially or emotionally, and boundary issues can now be a hot topic. You may feel undervalued, but do your best to avoid defeatist attitudes. Someone wants attention, and you don’t want to give it when you feel pushed to do so. Alternatively, part of you is seeking security, and another part, excitement, and it can be difficult to reconcile the two. Attempts to over-control or micromanage people and situations can be a warning sign that you’re overly attached, and you can benefit from some disengagement! There’s a push-pull energy going on that’s likely to frustrate, although if you observe, you might find ways to strike a balance. Aim to work on gaining power through self-control. In fact, you stand to learn a lot about your feelings and fears, even if they emerge in disruptive ways. Try to apply the rule of moderation in your life, not only for your activities but also for your thinking.
LibraConcerns about matters on the home front can undermine your confidence in spots today, dear Libra. The desire for independence and the escape of your responsibilities can be strong. Restlessness is the likely result! Keep in mind that power games are unlikely to help matters. Inflexible thinking can be a problem now, whether it’s your own or dealing with this in someone else. Take a deep breath and find a balance. As well, avoid dwelling on matters that you can’t change. Consider that a square from Pluto to both the Sun and Mercury in your sign can magnify fears or “un-bury” old grievances. What surfaces today may have been a long time coming, however, and can help break you away from past negative patterns. If you can’t seem to shake a line of thought that’s interfering with your day, do what you can to relax your mind. Or, if you turn your attention to a vulnerable area of your life that is within your capabilities of managing, you’ll be doing yourself a favor.
ScorpioOverthinking things is unlikely to lead you to a good place today, dear Scorpio. Instead, you may end up losing some objectivity. Jumping to communicate may not be the wisest choice under today’s transits, making it best to observe and adopt a wait-and-see attitude. Your mood can be up and down, and part of the reason is that you may be reading too much into others’ actions and words, looking for something wrong. Perhaps because you fear the worst, you’re jumping ahead of yourself, trying to find it so that you’re not taken off guard. Try to nip this problem in the bud right away! Emotional satisfaction today comes from truly connecting with others on a deep level, and defensiveness or suspicion is not going to get you any closer — to others or yourself. There can also be a tendency to be provocative in your communications now with both the Sun and Mercury forming a square to your ruler, Pluto.
SagittariusYou’d do well with some time to rest and compose yourself today, dear Sagittarius. With today’s transits, there’s a general tendency to push to get to the bottom of a matter or uncover a truth before considering whether you’re ready for it. It’s better not to jump to a quick conclusion about a friend with this influence that leads to thinking in extremes. Something expressed or remembered can seem to trigger fears now, and it’s best managed by controlling reactions. With people clinging too tightly to their viewpoints, interactions can be challenged, too intense, or unhealthy. Working on relaxing your mind instead of getting all wound up over matters can be therapeutic, especially since dwelling on mistakes will not erase them. Pushing with others leads to defensiveness, which sets you back, so if you really want to get to the truth of a matter, a softer approach is probably better. However, before even going there, ask yourself if you are seeking the truth or just power-tripping! With Pluto so strong now, it can be difficult knowing the difference.
CapricornCommunications can be loaded today, dear Capricorn, and you may feel as if you’re under a microscope. Insecurities about a work project or function can magnify, and you could wrestle with a bit of paranoia under today’s transits involving Pluto in your sign. Watch for poor behavior stemming from fears of not being “in the know.” If you’re driven by worry that you’re out of the loop, problems can emerge in your relationships or with your reputation. Instead, aim to go forward with the resolve to manage your life more efficiently. There can be frustration with people who seem to have an ulterior motive or an agenda now, and while you can’t control others, you can control where you put your energies. Use your intensity for constructive projects for the best results today. Consider, too, that it may be best to choose your words carefully. Feeling pressured can lead to mistakes. Focusing on things that genuinely make you feel grounded and secure can help you center yourself.
AquariusAvoid rushing decisions today, dear Aquarius, particularly if you’re in a state of worry, which is possible with current tense transits. While strategic thinking can benefit you, overthinking will likely lead you astray. Watch out for processing so much information that you suffer from sensory overload. It’s best to be discriminating with what you take in. However, don’t run away from problems today, either. Keep in mind that there’s something precious to learn from your interactions with others. Today’s events can, in fact, reveal where you’ve been over-attached, which gives you the chance to take steps to free yourself from fear in these areas of life. You may be experiencing difficulties related to keeping secrets, or differing belief systems can trigger buried frustration today. Remember that micromanaging or obsessing over an area of your life is likely counterproductive. Aim to detach yourself enough to regain your composure.
PiscesThere could be some mental tension or a battle of wills today, dear Pisces, with the Sun and Mercury clashing with Pluto. People can be too close to their opinions or determined to be correct, making healthy exchanges a real challenge. Instead, you might feel rising tension surrounding a predicament or problem, or you could have a hard time putting something out of your mind. The illumination of a tricky subject or a buried frustration can emerge. Although it’s meant to surface so that you can finally deal with it, you may be feeling a tad irritable now, and perhaps even offended! Find ways to build your sense of self-worth, value, security, and comfort instead of focusing on what’s missing. It may be best to channel excess mental energy into something worth your time. Try to avoid making big decisions based only on what you’re hearing or what’s communicated today. If you find yourself unable to move past an issue, taking a break may be best.
