Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your creative sector, dear Aries, and you’re seeking ways to enjoy and express yourself. Light entertainment is in order as a good way to detox emotionally. Later today, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square, and your social life may fall short of your expectations in some way. However, being left to your own resources can work in your favor. It can also be a day for catching your breath and looking for better strategies to pursue your goals. You might consider whether a particular plan or endeavor needs to evolve or dissolve. If you’re off track, this is a time for reorienting yourself. While serious energy can surround a relationship or activity, adjusting expectations as a direct result may be helpful.
TaurusToday is strong for finding solutions to practical dilemmas, dear Taurus. The desire to slow down and nest continues. You might arrive at valuable ideas and methods for developing healthier routines and habits. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Saturn square, and there can be reminders of an area of your life that requires patience. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations. Still, delays or slowdowns can help you refocus your attention on your priorities, and as you do, you might discover new and improved methods. It’s better to focus on what’s best for you in the long term rather than seek immediate gratification. If the pressure of expectations weighs on you, consider being clearer about your need for appreciation. People may forget that you need some positive feedback or encouragement from time to time. Fortunately, family matters tend to run smoothly.
GeminiWhile it’s an excellent time to think up solutions to problems, dear Gemini, the Sun’s impending square to Saturn can bring on a sobering reality about a project or situation. Aim to look for ways to work around roadblocks rather than feeling discouraged for too long. Getting through your responsibilities or work can feel longer and slower now, nevertheless, and it may be best to take things one step at a time and avoid pushing yourself. Your timing may be off, but it’s temporary. With the Sun in your solar sixth house these days, you want to express yourself through your routines, but you could feel overburdened or under-appreciated for your efforts today. Aim to please yourself by meeting your responsibilities so that you can get over the current hump. You may very well arrive at a stronger appreciation of your ability to rely on yourself. Instead, you might choose to work on a personal priority and later return to your projects refreshed.
CancerToday’s energies are good for unique ideas to make, save, or spend money, dear Cancer, or perhaps to enjoy your work or chores. While you’re feeling freer these days on many levels, there can be some need to slow down temporarily. With a Sun-Saturn square coming into play as the day advances, you could experience temporary doubts about recent projects or relationships. Slowing things down can be a critical strategy with this aspect active. It’s time to clear some hurdles before you move a matter forward. Be as patient as you can and play by all rules today for best results since it’s simply not the time for cutting corners. Getting back on track may require a rest or some tweaking of expectations. If you’re feeling insecure, remind yourself that what you think you’re lacking is probably exaggerated in your mind’s eye. Aim to work on improving those things that you can control and forget about the rest.
LeoBeing mentally busy and learning new things is especially satisfying today, dear Leo. The Moon in your sign eases your self-expression. Something sparks your curiosity and ignites your motivation to learn something new. As the day advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that adds some strain or worry to the day’s energy. It may be that someone is putting a damper on your plans or is overly critical. Or, there can be a previously neglected area of your life that now seems necessary to revisit. Things may feel slow and long just for now, but efforts to improve your life, even in small ways, can have a remarkable impact on the future. Keeping things simple can ultimately speed things up, even if it feels that you’re backtracking at the moment. Try not to take problem areas too much to heart, but do aim to patch up vulnerable spots of your life. This attitude will help strengthen you when Saturn is putting pressure on you in the future.
VirgoYou gravitate to concrete facts and certainties that simplify your life on some level, dear Virgo. Today is good for laying low and catching a break, if possible. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and the desire to retire is strong. You could find clues to a recent mystery in your life. As the day advances, a Sun-Saturn square comes into influence, bringing responsibilities and obligations to mind, however. The need to set some limits may arise, particularly with work and daily life. You could be feeling drained physically, and daily responsibilities can feel overwhelming as a result. Do your best to simplify, prioritize, and keep things real. Flaws in a current project may seem magnified, but rushing to fix them may lead to a sloppy job. It can be a good time, however, for you to see problem areas that need your attention. What appears as setbacks may very well be opportunities to make vital changes before moving forward. You may discover things you’ve overlooked something or that there is a better method for handling a matter. Aim to take things one step at a time or rest and conserve energy rather than push things or yourself today.
LibraToday’s transits help you express your ideas and share your plans, dear Libra. Others find you particularly interesting, and you’re more convincing than usual. It’s a good time to help someone solve a problem. As the day advances, a Sun-Saturn square comes into influence, and it can magnify responsibilities or obstacles. A seeming roadblock can arise around a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project. Circumstances or people seem to be disapproving or unhelpful, and you may be left to your own resources. An apparent setback, however, may lead to a vital step concerning long-term happiness, as is often the case with transits involving Saturn, the great teacher. You’re also learning about what you need in the long run. Look for a middle ground if conflicts emerge. Others may not be very forthcoming, warm, or expressive, which can feel a little cold but could also allow you enough space to discover resources you may not have known you had.
ScorpioMeeting your responsibilities is vital for emotional satisfaction today, dear Scorpio. At the same time, it’s best to take a break from the usual mental routine and to let your mind wander at times. Seek different ways to satisfy your curiosity to refresh yourself. We’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, however, marking a checkpoint for your goals and plans. More likely than not, this transit is about facing a limit or reality check. Since the Sun is currently in your sign, you may find it challenging to satisfy both your need for independence and your desire for security and assurance. You want to pursue your personal goals without feeling you’re letting someone down. Someone may be disapproving, or chores and responsibilities feel more weighty than usual. The key now is to be patient and practice self-discipline, seeking long-term satisfaction rather than instant gratification.
SagittariusYou’re in good shape for gaining some new perspectives on a matter, dear Sagittarius. You could feel inspired by the feedback you receive from sharing ideas. As the day advances, there can be some hesitation or blockage that temporarily slows you down. While annoying, delays now can be helpful in the long run if they open your eyes to areas that need some refinement. A Sun-Saturn transit tends to magnify flaws temporarily. You can help yourself by adjusting your speed, following rules, exercising patience, and conserving your energy by prioritizing. Avoid pushing things forward for best results now.
CapricornYou’re in good shape for sorting out your thoughts and observing what’s going on around you today, dear Capricorn. You might also especially enjoy exploring an interest. Communications can help you sort out your feelings. As the day advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square, and this can be a time to draw upon some patience and follow some rules. You may face an obstacle, which breaks the flow. Even if you want to push something ahead, it may be better to conserve your energy and resources. Others could be grumpy or critical. The best strategy now is to focus on long-term benefits and keep expectations simple. Resign yourself to making edits and adjustments rather than bold moves and remind yourself it’s temporary.
AquariusToday’s transits are strong for soaking in information, updating your knowledge, and training or studying, dear Aquarius. Allowing yourself to go with the flow instead of trying to push the pace puts you in a good place. As the day advances, we head towards a Sun-Saturn square, reminding you to recommit to your goals or adjust them so that they better suit your purpose. It’s not the ideal time to go against the grain, just for the time being. You may feel that you’re being tested, and it’s better to aim to do the best you can and be patient. Look for ways to maximize long-term success or happiness rather than focusing on the short term. Energy levels can be a little low, and if so, take time and get extra rest until strength returns. Backing down is sometimes the better strategy until strength and confidence return.
PiscesCommunication can help center you and relieve your mind regarding some of your troubles or concerns today, dear Pisces. Or, you’re a little less attached to your feelings or worries, which can lead to just the right atmosphere to enjoy yourself more. However, as the day advances, blocks can enter the picture. Interactions tend to trigger old problem areas as we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that manages to temper your enthusiasm. Slowing down may be helpful from time to time, even if it’s a bit frustrating, and get you back on track. However, don’t push this so far that you waste too much time feeling discouraged. It’s important to pick yourself up and focus on solving problems step by step. If you face limits, the best strategy might be to consider what’s genuinely best for you in the long term rather than the short term.
