Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon moves into your service sector today, stimulating a desire to set the smaller things in your life in order, dear Aries. Mars, the planet of action and energy and your ruler, heads into your solar eighth house for a stay until December 13th. This move pulls Mars out from its opposition to your sign, which has been in effect since mid-September. It’s not the most favorable position for an Aries, but ideally, you’ve had some help and support from others in your life, and now you’re ready to take back the reins. In this new cycle, you are less inclined to act on impulse and more interested in using strategy when moving your plans forward. This transit can stimulate power politics in a close one-to-one relationship or more action with money and things. It can also be an excellent time to take charge of financial matters that you once swept under the rug. Desires run more deeply than usual. Experiences with others can be real learning experiences for you, or they’re meant to draw out your own passions and desires. Research is in great shape–you love to pour your energies into an absorbing endeavor. This cycle reminds you that power is not about having the upper hand with others; it’s about managing your own energy effectively. This cycle turns the heat up on the more intricate elements of relating.
TaurusMars moves into your opposite sign today, dear Taurus, and will stay until December 13th. This influence animates, enlivens, and energizes your relationships with others, especially partnerships, sometimes stimulating conflicts. There can be increased activity or impulsiveness in your interactions. Problems that have been festering in a relationship have a way of surfacing now. People may seem to be opposing you more than usual during this cycle! Aim to own and acknowledge your role in conflicts. With mindfulness, it can be a favorable period for bringing fresh energy into a close relationship. It can also be a chance to discover your passions and courage through another person. You might have the motivation to pursue a relationship.
GeminiMars begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Gemini, bringing energy, animation, and motivation to your pursuit of health or chores. This transit lasts until December 13th, and it’s a time for sinking your teeth into challenging, motivating projects that you’ve left for later, or it can be a period for pursuing new and exciting programs and projects. Working independently, if possible, can be preferable since you might find people around you are not quite as quick or motivated as you at the moment! Watch for overdoing or pushing too hard, which leaves you more vulnerable to injury or exhaustion. With Mars, impatience can also trip you up. Strive to assert yourself confidently and professionally. You’ll find it hard to tolerate inactivity or waste in your daily routines in the weeks ahead.
CancerMars begins its transit of your solar fifth house today, dear Cancer, bringing dynamic energy to your romance and pleasure sector until December 13th. Things shouldn’t be dull with this transit that enhances your life on many different levels. Self-assertion comes more naturally in the weeks ahead. You might more enthusiastically pursue love, social amusement or hobbies, and pleasure in general. It feels good to have the support of Mars in a harmonious sign. In fact, you feel a little more spirited, confident, involved, and qualified. You are more willing to take personal risks with your heart and your creative impulses, and you’re quicker than usual to seize opportunities as they emerge. This more outgoing cycle brings smoother energy to most of your endeavors, as your direct approach tends to get you results.
LeoMars moves into your solar fourth house today for a stay until December 13th, dear Leo. This move puts this fiery planet in a challenging position relative to your sign, and at times, this transit can feel a little chaotic or turbulent, as if you’re fighting the tide. You may need to work yourself up on the inside before getting the motivation to assert yourself. Still, this transit can be very productive in certain areas, primarily related to taking action with family or home, and facing matters you’ve buried or put off. You can feel energetic and enthusiastic about organizing your home or enjoying activities with loved ones. Mars brings animation, energy, and perhaps a bit of commotion or agitation to your personal life in the weeks ahead.
VirgoMars begins its transit of your solar third house today, dear Virgo, where it will motivate, energize, and animate your life until December 13th. You can be particularly excited to learn, connect, and pursue your interests during this transit. At times, impatience with movements and communications can be a problem. Otherwise, it’s an excellent time to get things done. You quickly become fired up about your ideas, projects, and interests in the weeks ahead, and you can get a lot done with all of this passion and vigor. There can be a tendency to use words as a weapon during this cycle. However, it’s a time of more courage to connect with others and to say your piece. While the day begins a little slowly, the Moon later moves into your sign, where it will stay for a couple of days, awakening your spirit.
LibraMars enters your solar second house today, dear Libra, where it will transit until December 13th. This cycle stimulates your desire to make your life more comfortable, settled, and secure. Still, you may need to stir things up to get more settled! Mars can push you to make more money or settle a financial or relationship matter that ultimately increases comfort and predictability. You’re remarkably resourceful now, making the most of what you have, including both tangible and intangible resources such as money, valuables, know-how, and talents. You might experience a stronger desire for financial independence, or you can be excited to pursue a more substantial income and take action on money-making ideas. However, it can also bring impulsive energy to your spending habits, as the desire to accumulate objects heightens.
ScorpioFiery and straightforward Mars enters your sign today, dear Scorpio, and will stay in Scorpio until December 13th. This transit brings a lot of energy, sometimes to the point of excess, and it’s a good idea to focus on managing it to your advantage. You are clearer about what you’d like to do and more forthright and straightforward in your manner. Mars rules your personal energy levels, initiative, and drive, and its presence in your sign can elevate all of these things in the weeks ahead! You might want to watch for overly impulsive or impatient behavior. Otherwise, you can use this period to begin new projects or heartily pursue personal goals. It can also be a period when work comes to you or the medical attention or appointments you were waiting for, if applicable, come through.
SagittariusWith Mars moving into the sign just behind yours today, dear Sagittarius, you enter a cycle that’s vital for winding down and pacing yourself. Energy may be at a lower point, but you get the chance to take action on behind-the-scenes areas of your life or to resolve long-standing issues. This transit lasts until December 13th and is helpful for processing, resting, and regenerating activities. You’re figuring out your next step, and you may not be entirely clear of your plans for the time being. This apparent slow-down is a time for recharging your spirit, laying to rest plans that have outgrown their usefulness. It’s a fine time for reconsidering or reorganizing certain projects and pursuits, as well as for making more time for rest and healing.
CapricornMars moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Capricorn, giving you a reprieve from challenges in the weeks ahead. Until December 13th, energy or activity increases with friendship, community, goals, dreams, teamwork, or social objectives. You may reconnect with your desire to pursue your goals and dreams in concrete ways or become inspired by the prospect of new ventures. At times during this transit, friends or group associations can ripple with conflicts or discord, particularly if problems have been looming. Ideally, with mindfulness in the mix, this transit forces matters and leads to quick resolutions or a positive clearing of the air. Overall, however, energy levels improve as you’re confident in your ability to make things happen.
AquariusMars moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until December 13th, fueling your motivation and sparking ambitions. While the desire to do things your way or run the show can sometimes conflict with others, this is an excellent period for pushing yourself to improve and excel–you have more courage to go after what you want. It’s also a time for connecting with your ambition or long-term plans. You may be taking charge or taking the lead. Some self-control can offset a tendency to be impatient with others or impulsive in your dealings. It’s an innovative, self-starting period when you take the initiative.
PiscesMars, the planet of action and energy, moves into your spirit sector and harmony with your sign today, dear Pisces. It will continue to influence this area of your chart until December 13th. This transit helps boost your ability to either overcome or sidestep obstacles–either way, it’s a generally smoother ride! It’s a braver time for you. Whether on a physical or mental plane, new or different experiences are attractive during this cycle. There can be a lot of enthusiasm about sharing your ideas, although sometimes this needs tempering since debates can quickly become heated or personal under this influence.
