Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be some challenges coordinating or balancing your sense of independence with others today, dear Aries, and you could experience some tricky energy. You’re in a Sun cycle that’s good for putting more energy into listening to others and attending to your relationships. It’s a generally considerate and compromising cycle. However, today’s Sun-Chiron transit can reveal vulnerable areas. While you may not want to stir up past matters, it can be cleansing to do so as long as there’s a willingness to grow and move past problem areas. Concentrate on improvements for best results. While the extra attention you’ve been giving other people in your life these days is positive and beneficial, if you overdo it, you can fail to recognize your own needs and desires fully. Try your best to get over attitudes or thought patterns that are too negative to do you any good. The Moon transits your soul sector all day, and you can feel the best functioning behind the scenes just for now.
TaurusWork, health, and habits are strong themes in your life with current transits, dear Taurus. Today, your relationship with any of these things can be complicated. The Sun opposes Chiron, exposing your soft spots. There may be sidetracking, a delayed situation on the job, or a minor health matter that interferes with productivity. Fortunately, a positive attitude and the determination to not let the little things get you down may very well save the day.

Differing core values can be glaring now, or feelings of indebtedness could interfere with healthy interactions. However, this is a time to learn from the vulnerabilities that seem to reveal themselves now. You might be able to solve a problem, particularly of the interpersonal variety, lay a debate to rest, or simply get a little closer to someone special.
LibraToday’s energies tend to stir up some tension or old problems, but they also help get issues out into the open, dear Libra. There is a particular focus on your plans, needs, and schedule these days with the Sun in your sign. However, with a Sun-Chiron opposition, you may need to address a fear or insecurity before you feel more confident. You might see-saw between feeling slightly uncomfortable when you’re in the spotlight but frustrated if you’re overlooked! You may struggle with feelings related to your relationships, attachments, and sense of independence. However, as you do, you learn more about yourself and problem areas that can benefit from some strengthening. This is a good day for meeting your goals that involve daily life and routines.
ScorpioThere can be nagging problems and concerns to manage early today, dear Scorpio, with the Sun opposite Chiron. You might struggle to find a balance between work and rest. Old problems might resurface, and people are more sensitive than usual. With a powerful solar twelfth house, you have a stronger need to recover, relax, heal, and renew your strength these days.

Watch for guilt eroding your actions, decisions, and relationships now. Take this opportunity to work through these issues.
SagittariusYour solar eleventh house has much power these days, dear Sagittarius, encouraging you to branch out and seek out others. Friendship, networking, and happiness goals are in strong focus for you, but there can be some complications from time to time. Today, you may be struggling with whether to go it alone or enlist help on a matter. You may find it difficult to see a friend or lover clearly, or something can raise doubts or insecurities regarding a friend or lover. An old problem area might emerge, and although this can weigh you down, it’s an important time to arrive at a better understanding of yourself and others. Experiences now can drive you to express your deeper feelings creatively or artistically, which would be an excellent way to channel frustrations or anger.
CapricornYour solar tenth house has more power these days, dear Capricorn, and you’re in good shape for recognizing and honoring your goals and ambitions. Your instincts for advancement are generally sharp. However, today’s Sun-Chiron transit could signal a need to get over a hump. There can be some challenges with balancing your worldly goals with your personal life, living situation, or family affairs. Some hesitation with expressing your affections or stiffness in your communications and interactions could result from today’s transits. Your timing is slightly off, but it’s temporary–you may only need more time with your feelings before embracing them. Seek to strengthen problem areas rather than overcompensating. Watch for defensiveness and aim to learn from your interactions with others, even if people seem to be hitting a nerve! Do your best to sort out any guilty feelings you may have that are interfering with going after what you want.
AquariusThere is more activity and power in your spirit sector these days, dear Aquarius. You’re in generally good shape for exploring different options, settings, and ideas. Even so, you can wrestle with taking care of business or daily affairs from time to time, and today’s Sun-Chiron transit can bring insecurities into the mix, likely related to speaking your mind, communicating, or learning something new. Interactions with others tend to trigger old problem areas, but what emerges now may very well need your attention before moving along. Do your best to address issues related to guilt or insecurities today.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, you may struggle with insecurities or uncertainties about your income, talents, or what you have to offer, dear Pisces. Troubled areas surrounding values, money, intimacy, and ownership can emerge, likely through loaded interactions with others. Keep in mind that everyone’s a little sensitive with today’s Sun-Chiron transit, but also consider that it’s time to address problem areas before they grow bigger. The illumination of a tricky subject or a buried frustration can be revealing, albeit annoying. It may be better to seek ways to build your sense of self-worth, value, security, and comfort instead of focusing on what’s missing.
