Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Saturn now direct in your solar eleventh house, dear Aries, you’re in better shape to meet your responsibilities. It’s a good idea to look for ways to simplify or cut back, even if this is not the easiest choice. You are taking care of unfinished business that will help move things forward on this day before a New Moon. Truths coming to light this week help you get a grip on the reality of friendships or projects, a long-term plan, aspiration, or goal. It’s easier to make better arrangements with a sense of what is viable and what isn’t. You’re able to put procrastinating ways behind you in some regions of your life, and it feels good to do so. Also today, a conversation with someone can be a source of comfort, security, or good advice.
TaurusWith Saturn now direct in your solar tenth house, dear Taurus, you bring more confidence to your work or feel more capable of handling your responsibilities and taking the lead. If a business venture or life path seemed blocked in recent months, you are now turning a corner. Career and reputation matters are ready to pick up steam, even if it’s a slow and steady pace. This influence helps clarify your business, career, and life path goals or projects. Look for opportunities to clear up debts or settle accounts today on this day before a New Moon. It’s a great time to consider letting go of unnecessary attachments. However, it’s not an ideal time to take on something new. This week, there may be a reality check, but you’ll also recognize what’s genuinely doable. Today is good for discussing plans for work, long-term goals, your environment, and health. You’re seeking a stronger sense that you’re in control of your life in fundamental ways.
GeminiTying up loose ends may be necessary before you can go forward with confidence, dear Gemini. Avoid taking on responsibilities that others should be handling, or watch for relying too heavily on others when you’d be better off getting things done independently. Saturn has just turned direct after retrograde motion since June. Sharing, learning, publishing, exploring, legal matters, or education might need extra attention to rules and structure this week and as you advance. It’s a good time to work on bringing expectations down to earth. Reminders that you should be paying attention to the realities of a situation can figure strongly, but don’t let a small reality check discourage you. Self-improvement endeavors can be in focus and successful as you go forward. Slowly but surely, you find new reasons to be optimistic about where you’re heading. You’re no longer satisfied with waiting things out and more willing to do the groundwork to move matters forward. Today, you might choose to sort out critical areas of your life, or there can be clarity or confirmation of an issue. However, on this day before a Solar Eclipse, it’s better to reflect than to push ahead.
CancerToday’s energies are good for considering whether you’re holding onto something that no longer serves you well, dear Cancer, notably an attitude or expectation. Settling accounts can be in order. Saturn has just turned direct after retrograde motion since June. With this influence, you can expect your intimate world to gain more clarity this week and beyond. You gain a stronger sense of what you want from your relationships or see some forward progress with taxes, debts, or financial support. Today is possibly excellent for finding ways to improve your family and home life. You might instead boost your relationship with yourself and your inner world. Conversations with or about loved ones can be constructive, and researching the information you need can be useful. Tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse makes today better for reflection than for new beginnings.
LeoToday is better to tie up loose ends than to make any new long-term commitments or agreements, dear Leo. A New Moon eclipse will occur tomorrow, making today a better time to look back before you move ahead. Saturn has just turned direct after more than four months of retrograde motion. This directional change finds you clearer about where you stand with others. Clarity about a relationship or your needs from others can empower you this week and beyond. Realistic expectations of projects and people lead to a stronger sense or purpose or direction. There can be a reality to face or a sense of obligation that helps clarify things. While a commitment or responsibility can hang heavy in the air, you could feel that you’re turning a corner in a relationship. Today, you’re inclined to set the record straight or give/receive useful advice.
VirgoSaturn has just ended its retrograde, turning direct in your solar sixth house, dear Virgo. You could begin to get back on track with a diet or fitness plan, chores, or a work project. These things may have stalled in perhaps frustrating ways in the past months (Saturn was retrograde since June). After a reality check of sorts, you’re inclined to adopt a more straightforward approach to meeting and facing these responsibilities. The weeks ahead can be particularly active for organization and self-improvement. More structure is useful, and cutting back on certain activities can be necessary to get back on track. Today, a grounded, reasonable approach to your life may be best. News might clarify a previously uncertain situation, or you could draw plans to improve your life. You’re willing to put in the effort for something that has longer-term benefits–you have foresight now. Nevertheless, a New Moon eclipse will occur tomorrow, possibly setting you on a new path, making today better for reflection or tying up loose ends.
LibraThere is a somewhat sober tone to the week with Saturn having just ended its retrograde, dear Libra. Ultimately, this change of direction helps clarify your feelings, relationships, projects, and ventures. It’s now more natural to recognize what’s genuinely doable. Don’t be surprised if you experience strong instincts to narrow in on particular goals and projects, as it’s a good time to cut out the fluff. In the weeks ahead, you could feel inspired to make lifestyle changes or to recommit to a project or relationship. It may be best if you aim to see the benefits of facing reality rather than nursing feelings of discouragement. Today’s good for sorting out your thoughts. Verbalizing plans, even if only in a list for your eyes only, can be very useful. You may find that you’re a better judge of an idea if you see it spelled out in front of you. With a New Moon eclipse occurring tomorrow, it’s best to think, reflect, and process than it is to begin anew.
ScorpioSaturn has just turned direct in your solar fourth house, dear Scorpio. Gradual improvements to family life are in store, but you’re also putting in the work to make things happen. Home improvement projects can resume or pick up the pace, and relationships with family may strengthen. You’ll more easily recognize what needs to improve in your personal life, at home, or within. There may be a reality to face or an obligation to fulfill now or this week, but it pushes things forward. Aim to take things gradually and enjoy the process of bringing more order and security to your personal space and inner world. Today, there can be a strong focus on analyzing a past or unfinished matter. Consider that there’s a New Moon eclipse occurring in your sign tomorrow, and today is better to settle accounts, tie up loose ends, or process and digest than it is to begin something brand new. Look to let go of things you don’t need.
SagittariusWith Saturn now direct in your communications sector, dear Sagittarius, you’re better able to evaluate which of your interests, studies, and projects are genuinely worth your efforts. Facing reality ultimately strengthens you, even if it’s a little uncomfortable at first! Responsibilities and duties might magnify just for now. Saturn has been retrograde since June, and this week, there may be a potent reminder of your need to organize or take care of your daily affairs. More structure to your communications, studies, and connections to others can benefit you greatly. Procrastination is costly, and as you meet your goals and responsibilities, you gain confidence. Today, however, it’s better to wind down, process, and tie up loose ends on this day before a New Moon eclipse. Strong energy is with you for releasing yourself from something from the past. Ordering your thoughts in some manner can help you restore yourself and clarify your vision.
CapricornToday’s energies are suitable for correcting past mistakes and omissions so that you can clear the path forward, dear Capricorn. The New Moon eclipse occurring tomorrow will redirect you, and it makes sense to wind down. Your planetary ruler, Saturn, has just turned direct after retrograde motion since June. This Saturn station reminds you of the value of simplicity this week. Money matters require more structure and discipline, but they also improve steadily as you advance. Focus on firming up your budget, evaluating business projects, and paring down excess so that you can feel more secure and pay extra attention to your practical affairs. Saturn asks you to be responsible and mature about your money, things, resources, and talents. The rewards for doing so can be significant, although they’re often deferred! Putting some uncertainty behind you can lead to better plans moving forward.
AquariusWith Saturn now direct in your sign, dear Aquarius, there can be a strong focus on getting organized, following the rules, and attention to practical details in the weeks ahead. Your comfort with facing reality and taking care of your responsibilities improves, leading to better decisions. You’re building your confidence to face reality, and you’re in good shape for specific health pursuits to resume or begin. Responsibilities and problems can undoubtedly magnify in your mind, but this is an empowering shift. Today, you could feel the need to attend to duties that help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress. On this day before a New Moon eclipse, it’s better to wind down, but planning, reflecting, and intuiting are all very suitable. You might more readily see what’s held you back from pursuing your goals.
PiscesThis week is good for recognizing which attachments may be holding you back from growing and thriving, dear Pisces. With a New Moon eclipse occurring tomorrow, you might make a plan to clear up old projects that are slowing your progress or take care of duties so that you can start fresh. As well, Saturn has just turned direct after retrograde motion since June. While this shift can bring on a small dose of reality, it’s also likely to lead to a feeling of strength and clarity. It can be a time to face past elements that resurface as truths or realities. Keep in mind that knowing your position can lead to making better plans. In the weeks ahead, you’ll feel more equipped to put negative habits and attitudes behind you. Getting some peace of mind can be invigorating.
