Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesFriendships benefit from sharing ideas, ideals, and encouragement today, dear Aries. Even so, there is some tendency to feel in flux today. The Moon aligns with Uranus, and it’s a good idea to give yourself and others space and freedom. Also today, Mars and Pluto are heading toward a square, producing some tension. As the day moves forward, there can be a tendency to lock heads with others, instigate, or attempt to force a matter. Tensions about work and responsibilities can be triggers, or there can be disagreements about priorities. If you fear that you will not get your way, there can be a temptation to manipulate, or if someone in your life is frequently taking the reins, you’ll want to make changes now. Resentments might surface, but this also gives you the chance to see what anger or hurt you’ve been holding onto to your detriment.
TaurusEmotions are immediate and at the surface with the Moon in your sign all day, dear Taurus. You can be pretty masterful in a leadership role or with your work, but there can be impatience or juggling to manage. Bonding happens through generosity of spirit today. Mars in your work and health sector these days can encourage you to get a lot done. It has its positives and negatives, and you may experience the full range of them today! On the one hand, you can feel energized, wanting to solve problems and put a big dent in your to-do list. You have your eye on problem areas, and you’re focusing on managing the details that need attention. However, this can turn into an obsession. Watch for a tendency to dwell on negative emotions or complex topics or dig in your heels on an issue, leading to an impasse. Obstinacy now can be a symptom of a deeper problem or fear of change, and that doesn’t do anyone, including yourself, any good. It’s best to look to the source of frustrations. If you find yourself holding on for dear life to an opinion or method, consider what is genuinely bothering you.
GeminiIn your closest relationships, a spirit of graciousness works best for you today, dear Gemini. Spending more time, energy, and attention on someone can reap the rewards. However, a Mars-Pluto square coming into play can produce some tension, particularly as the day advances. Mars is in your sector of joy and creativity these days, and it tends to animate your romantic or creative worlds. While largely a supportive transit, it has its challenges. Today, you may feel ready to take action on a matter, but passion and enthusiasm can turn to frustration if you’re too heavily invested or if things are not going to script. If you’re facing resistance, it might be best to adjust expectations or even to let go of a matter temporarily so that you can clear your head. Today’s transits stimulate loaded interactions. There can be issues related to understanding what a relationship means or its depth of involvement or commitment. It may be best to focus your energies on something productive rather than dwell on something that isn’t going your way. Nevertheless, it’s a time to see areas of your life where you’re too attached for your own good, and this vision can help you make the best decisions for you.
CancerYou might enjoy social opportunities arising through work, services, or the pursuit of health and wellness goals today, dear Cancer. You might thoroughly prosper operating in the background just for now. Your desire to take action on a matter mainly related to home, personal issues, and family is strong. While you can undoubtedly benefit from enthusiasm and passion for getting things done today, tensions can mount if things don’t go as expected. Others may seem to resist or stand in the way, or there can be demanding energy to manage in your relationships as the day advances. If you or someone in your life is rigid regarding a plan or expecting others to follow their script, tension can follow, and ego energies can lead to power games. While it’s true that competition sometimes motivates you to improve your game, today’s tense atmosphere doesn’t readily lead to positives unless you consciously aim to identify areas of anger and work on resolving them. Coarseness or insensitivity can spoil your mood, but you also have a lot to learn about yourself and your attachments.
LeoThe Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Leo, encouraging you to focus on your long-term objectives. Watch for a tendency to magnetize what you fear due to a focus on flaws and frustrations. You can feel quite passionate in pursuit of creative goals or mental interests and the sharing of ideas. However, a Mars-Pluto aspect comes into play as the day advances, producing some tension. Watch that you’re not holding on so tightly to a belief or viewpoint that it begins to consume or trouble you, interfering with healthy interactions. You may not want to budge on an idea, schedule, or method. However, letting go, even temporarily, or being flexible, is probably better for you all around. Look for ways to calm frayed nerves and aim to gain perspective. With this transit, it can be challenging to maintain a sense of proportion, mainly regarding your work or health matters, but it can also give you a window into areas that require some detachment.
VirgoYou may want to explore something new today, dear Virgo, as you seek out a little more meaning. You can feel especially protected by and protective of loved ones, improving your bonds. You might discover ways to increase the pleasantness of your routines, work, or home life today. As the day advances, Mars and Pluto head into a square aspect. Mars transiting your solar second house these days is great for the motivation to build a project, a business, or your resources. Today, there can be some tension or impatience if things are not going as planned. Conflicts or frustrations are possible regarding finances, values, and ideas that stimulate fears or clash with those of someone in your life. There can be resentments emerging and a tendency to push for answers that you may not honestly want to receive in the end. Use intense emotions and compulsions constructively, if possible, or aim to use this window into problematic attachments to improve your life. It can be challenging to maintain proportion when Mars and Pluto challenge one another, so keep your wits about you.
LibraToday’s energies are decent for creative expression or immersing yourself in a hobby, the arts, or other forms of dramatic entertainment, dear Libra. Enjoying yourself tends to attract positive attention and fun from outside sources. As the day advances, Mars heads into a challenging aspect with Pluto, and with Mars currently transiting your sign, it can feel personal. On the one hand, you can feel inspired to take charge of your life, but on the other, you might struggle with managing excess energy effectively. This transit makes it challenging to maintain a sense of proportion, and you may be dealing with a bit of impatience, pride, or misdirected anger. Or, you could face some resistance to getting what you want or accomplishing what you set out to do. Avoid manipulative tactics that will serve only to put more pressure on you. Consider that if you’re dwelling on something that’s making you miserable, backing off a little can come as a relief. Make it your goal not to make a mountain out of a molehill, but let this aspect show you where resentments have been building, perhaps to unhealthy levels.
ScorpioThere can be supportive people or channels for expressing your affections today, dear Scorpio. Even so, some pressure can build as Mars and Pluto head toward a square. Mars will enter your sign on the 30th, but it continues to transit your privacy sector until then. It’s a good time to clear the decks for new beginnings. Today, unresolved tension or resentment can lead to regrettable words or poor timing. It’s not very easy to ask for what you want directly right now. You might hope instead that others intuit your needs, but this leaves you vulnerable to allowing others’ actions (or inactions) to decide your mood. Do your best to ease and settle your mind. Being kind to yourself may involve letting a matter go, as challenging as that may be. Rather than waste time on resentment, aim to use frustration to motivate you to improve something in your life.
SagittariusYour natural charm increases today, dear Sagittarius. What seems like a problem can end up resolving in your favor now. You might get to enjoy some personal time or discover exciting new interests. As the day advances, a Mars-Pluto square comes into play, producing some tension. Mars in your solar eleventh house these days generally supports your efforts. However, with Mars under strain today, you could encounter some difficulties as you may meet stubbornness and rigidity. Conflicts involving values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries can easily cross the line and turn into power games or other forms of manipulations with this transit. Try not to hold on so tightly to your methods or approach that you alienate someone, and watch for others who are doing something similar now. Consider that any anger or frustration that emerges today can point you in the right direction as to what needs healing and resolution.
CapricornToday’s transits are good for activities that help you let go of problems, detox, and de-stress, dear Capricorn. You could be supporting someone anonymously or from behind the scenes. However, Mars and Pluto are heading into a square aspect, and tension or pressure is likely. Mars transiting your solar tenth house these days can motivate you to reach a goal. With Mars under strain, keeping a sense of proportion can be challenging as the day advances. There’s a tendency to become so focused on a matter that you fail to see other options. It works out fine if you use it to push forward a productive goal or if you pour your passion into something that genuinely needs undivided attention. However, if you’re dwelling on something that is not yet ready to push forward, problems can ensue. Try to let go of issues that indeed aren’t progressing today, and wait for a better time to pour your energy into these things. If you look closely at emerging feelings or reactions today, you’ll get a nice window into areas where you or someone in your life is overly attached and could use a breather or perspective.
AquariusSomeone can be very gracious and generous with you today, dear Aquarius, and this stands out as significant now. You’re coming across well and more readily gaining cooperation and appreciation. As the day advances, the energies of a Mars-Pluto square can put some pressure on you, however. There is a tendency to fixate or dwell on a topic even if it’s not working for you, and perhaps even if it’s frustrating you. Watch for insisting on your way or perspective so adamantly that it causes you stress or puts a strain on a relationship. This transit can instead suggest an internal struggle with a fear that seems to hold you back from pursuing a challenge or passion. Watch that you are not your own worst enemy today by saying or doing things that invite adverse reactions.
PiscesPrivate, healing, and intimate activities can fare pretty well today, dear Pisces. You could be drawing upon support from behind the scenes or your wisdom and intuition to advance your goals. As the day advances, a Mars-Pluto square can put the pressure on, however. Mars in your intimacy sector inclines you to dig deep, investigate, observe, and strategize. Today, a clash on a matter of values or the understanding of a commitment can emerge. This transit tends to pull up buried frustration or anger, and you’re inclined to not only see the problems but also dwell on them if you’re not careful. What starts as a passionate feeling about something or someone could quickly turn into frustration. Avoid senseless power struggles with others, but feel and attempt to understand any darker matter that surfaces from deep inside.
