Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere are high levels of mental energy in the first half of the day, dear Aries. You feel motivated to do things that you’ve been letting slide. An important conversation can occur, or news can arrive on financial matters that gets you going or puts a plan or idea into motion. Aim to use this blast of energy to sort out financial support issues, solve a mystery, or get to the truth of a matter. You’re courageous with information as Mercury and Mars align. An intimate conversation can be very revealing now. However, there’s a decided emphasis on the mind rather than the heart, so watch for this. If you find yourself trying hard to get to the truth of a matter, be sure to respect your own and others’ limits and boundaries. Use your enhanced problem-solving abilities to sort out tricky issues.
TaurusIt’s a powerful time for recognizing which ideas and projects truly move you, dear Taurus. You can experience today’s mental energy through a partner or significant friend, as someone may be very intent on getting under your skin or could be trying to turn you on to an idea or plan. Mercury and Mars join forces in your partnership sector today, which can rather quickly rile you up. A strong desire to take action is likely, but an aggravation or assertion from a partner who wants to take the lead can also figure strongly. It’s too easy to get into an argument, even if you are not doing so intentionally, so choose your battles wisely! You could find you’re attracting disagreement or conflict today, but in some cases, a confrontation may be just what a relationship needs right now. There can be an accelerated, energized pace to a relationship and animated or impulsive communications. You can be particularly focused on ideas or movement, and possibly both, but you may need to let your brain rest. Try to channel the extra energy you have into genuinely productive activities.
GeminiThis can be a good, if impatient, time for getting going on a health, wellness, or work project, dear Gemini. You’re tired of only thinking about things — you want to get things moving. The pace picks up surrounding work or daily routines now. The urge to sort out little problems, iron out flaws, and eliminate waste or excess is strong, so use this extra energy boost to clear up the clutter in your daily life. Watch for sharp or rude words — or communications that can be misconstrued as such. While it’s important to express yourself, watch that you don’t push it too far. Others may not be working quite as quickly as you are–or contributing as much–and this can be frustrating. Overall, however, this is an active day for enthusiastically attending to practical affairs. The energy you invest in your work or important projects right now will return on itself, generating even more enthusiasm and passion for what you’re doing.
CancerYou can have a strong urge to get things done today, dear Cancer, although there can be some frustration if you attempt to push something that needs more time to play out. With today’s Mercury-Mars transit, you might decide things quickly with love relationships, entertainment, pleasure, dating, or creativity. However, decisions could lack an emotional element, so watch for getting ahead of yourself. Mental excitement can cross the line into irritation. Watch for impulsive communications or steps. Friendly competition might drive you to do bigger and better things, and even the unfriendly variety can ultimately prompt you to improve your life. Smoothing out your energy levels can be helpful if you’re dealing with a delay or reality check. Of course, it can be frustrating to take things easy when a big part of you is ready for action, but it seems the best move at the moment. Your ambitions are to the fore, and you can experience a strong urge to express yourself in a creative, unique manner.
LeoTake advantage of the extra energy you have now by pouring it into something constructive, dear Leo. Family life can be animated or your own inner world can be especially rich and exciting as Mercury and Mars align in your solar fourth house. There can be vivid memories and important discoveries. You could be revisiting an area of your family life or past that engages your attention now. Relationships are taking on special meaning and new “layers” — you have unique insight into patterns of relating and the people you love. Stress in small, not prolonged doses can be good for you, so do something productive about it if you find yourself worked up today. If you feel cooped up and restless, you’re more likely to either stew about a frustrating matter or get yourself into a disagreement. Your brain can feel overloaded, or your mind races. Look for a real chance to get things done instead of simply letting your mind wind up. Instead, you might take a detour from your usual routine to keep emotional excitement levels high.
VirgoThere is much mental energy to manage today, dear Virgo, and for the most part, you’re channeling it well. Whether you’re teaming up to get something done or simply applying yourself to a pet project, you’re passionate about what you’re doing and quite good at it. Debate, share your ideas, and engage in mental gymnastics, but keep your emotional distance for the best results. Ideas are all-consuming and exciting. There can be some impulsiveness, but overall, you are wise enough to see that working with a strategy benefits you the most right now. Still, it can be a “last straw” time, when you no longer tolerate a situation. You’re passionate about what you do today, and probably very excited about sharing ideas or stating your case. Learning is quick and easy now. However, watch for impulsiveness.
LibraYou can be itching to state your case or move something forward today, dear Libra. You may be on the defensive or frustrated if your opinion or idea isn’t catching on, but if you avoid riling yourself up, you can channel all this mental energy into an important project. Financial and business matters are in focus. Mercury and Mars forming an alignment today can inspire you but can also aggravate problems. On the one hand, it can be a good day for exciting ideas about business, money, and practical affairs. On the other hand, there can also be impatience, and skipping necessary steps can lead to problems. Your mind is sharp, and you can be very productive, but the same influence that motivates you to put ideas into motion today can lead you to argue if you’re not careful. Decisions made now tend to be quick, and hopefully not too hasty. You might also feel the need to defend your values today.
ScorpioMercury and Mars join in your sign today, dear Scorpio, giving you a powerful voice and the courage to say your piece. Even so, this can also be an impatient energy, and it’s best to avoid getting ahead of yourself. You are filled with energy and vision today, so try not to waste it on arguing a point. The temptation to blurt something out can be overwhelming now.! As well, it can be a little too easy for others to push your buttons, and quick conclusions may lead to regrettable commentary or decisions. Be careful not to push something to a breaking point or push yourself too hard. Apply your tremendous mental energy to something productive and useful. You’re moving a little bit outside of your comfort zone these days, and this is an important process.
SagittariusMuch is going on under the surface and behind the scenes today, dear Sagittarius, as Mercury and Mars join in the background of your solar chart. Your imagination and dreaming mind are especially active. There can be new, exciting developments in your private life or powerful memories and realizations. You are dealing with ideas and concepts that you may have avoided in the past. Be careful to not only respect others’ limits but also yours, as your curiosity can sometimes take you too far, learning things you can’t unlearn. Ideally, a problem turns around in your favor now. Instead of allowing your mind to race, consider channeling all of this extra mental energy into something productive, creative, and positive. Be sure to gather all your facts before blurting something out now. There may be gossip to manage or a sense that others know something you don’t, but try not to let this make you tense.
CapricornYou’re motivated and inspired by new visions of your future, and you can gather exciting ideas through your connections to others, dear Capricorn. Mercury and Mars join forces in a sign that’s compatible with yours today, presenting an opportunity to put a great idea into motion or to settle a long-standing problem once and for all. On the other hand, there can be some impatience or aggravation with an associate, group, or friend. A rude awakening may or may not work in your favor, so choose your battles wisely now, or if you feel compelled to bring up a touchy subject, take extra time to express yourself mindfully (although this can be hard to do today). If you channel energy with you today well, you can team up to make something exciting happen. This might also be a time to act on your wish list. Friendships can be demanding, exciting, or simply more active and productive than usual. You may be engaging in intensive talks or debates now. It’s possible that a rude awakening or frank discussion can catapult you in a new direction, or it might motivate you to make positive changes.
AquariusWhile the Moon in your home and family sector all day points to the need for quiet, dear Aquarius, today’s Mercury-Mars alignment can energize your thoughts and conversations. This transit seems to demand quite a bit of mental engagement and attention. You may have extra energy or courage to speak out, but it’s important not to talk too ahead of yourself as your heart may not be in the equation. A fresh approach or perspective is required in your work or regarding your goals. You may be wanting to push the limits, and this can work to some degree today, but knowing when to stop is important for your own sake. Try to balance logic and emotion. You may very well have a competitive edge again today, and it can be a great time to pour yourself into a project that is important to you. You want to overcome obstacles in your path and solve problems, and you tend to do so with high energy now.
PiscesToday’s transits sharpen your mind, dear Pisces, but you’ll probably need to pay extra attention to relating to others on a personal level, as you are living in the mind today. You might easily defend a cause or express an opinion and possibly get into a heated debate. You can be excited to learn a subject more deeply. It’s an excellent time to pursue anything that involves healing the mind or paying particular attention to the mind-body connection. Share your joie de vivre with others now, and watch for the opportunities that open up as you do. Watch, however, for impatience if others are not moving as quickly as you are, and for sharp words. With Mercury joining Mars in your sector of beliefs and opinions, your interactions can be intense, but you can use your extra sharpness and can-do attitude for good, perhaps putting a past problem to rest.
