Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile the Moon in your sector of joy is a playful influence, dear Aries, there is some tendency to feel in flux today. A Mars-Pluto square can generate tension. There can be a tendency to lock heads with others, instigate, or attempt to force a matter. Tensions about work and responsibilities can be triggers, or there can be disagreements about priorities. If you fear that you will not get your way, there can be a temptation to manipulate, or if someone in your life is frequently taking the reins, you’ll want to make changes now. Resentments might surface, but this also allows you to see what anger or hurt you’ve been holding onto to your detriment.
TaurusWhile you want to settle in and detach from tense situations today, dear Taurus, a Mars-Pluto square can generate some pressure. Mars in your work and health sector these days can encourage you to get a lot done. On the one hand, you can feel energized, wanting to solve problems and put a big dent in your to-do list. You have your eye on problem areas and focus on managing the details that need attention. However, this can turn into an obsession today. Watch for a tendency to dwell on negative emotions or complex topics or dig in your heels on an issue, leading to an impasse. Obstinacy now can be a symptom of a deeper problem or fear of change, which doesn’t do anyone, including yourself, any good. It’s best to look to the source of frustrations. If you find yourself holding on to an opinion or method for dear life, consider what is genuinely bothering you.
GeminiWhile today’s Moon inclines you to a light frame of mind, dear Gemini, a Mars-Pluto square points to some tensions and possibly loaded interactions. Mars is in your sector of joy and creativity these days, often animating your romantic or creative worlds. While primarily a supportive transit, it has its challenges. Today, you may feel ready to take action on a matter, but passion and enthusiasm can turn to frustration if you’re too heavily invested or if things aren’t going to script. If you’re facing resistance, it might be best to adjust expectations or even let go of a matter temporarily so that you can clear your head. There can be issues related to understanding what a relationship means or its depth of involvement or commitment. It may be best to focus your energies on something productive rather than dwell on something that isn’t going your way. Nevertheless, it’s a time to see areas of your life where you’re too attached to something for your own good, and this vision can help you make the best decisions for you.
CancerToday brings some clever ideas and methods, dear Cancer, but also some tension. Your desire to take action on a matter, mainly related to home, personal issues, and family, is strong today. Mars is transiting your solar fourth house these days, animating your home life. While you can benefit greatly from your enthusiasm and passion for getting things done today, tensions can mount if things don’t go as expected. Others may resist or stand in the way, or there can be demanding energy to manage in your relationships. If you or someone in your life is rigid regarding a plan or expecting others to follow their script, tension can follow, and ego energies can lead to power games. While competition can motivate you to improve your game in certain instances, today’s tense air doesn’t seem to lead to anything positive unless you consciously aim to identify areas of anger and work on resolving them. Coarseness or insensitivity can spoil your mood now, but you also have a lot to learn about yourself and your attachments.
LeoWith the Moon in your sign all day, dear Leo, your emotions are immediate and at the surface. Watch for a tendency to magnetize what you fear due to a focus on flaws and frustrations as the day advances, however. You can feel quite passionate in pursuit of creative goals or mental interests and the sharing of ideas. However, a Mars-Pluto transit is tense in nature. Watch that you’re not holding on so tightly to a belief or viewpoint that it begins to consume or trouble you, interfering with healthy interactions. You may not want to budge on an idea, schedule, or method. But being flexible and letting go, even temporarily, is probably better for you all around. Look for ways to calm frayed nerves and aim to gain perspective. With this transit, it can be challenging to maintain a sense of proportion, mainly regarding your work or health matters, but it can also give you a window into areas that require some detachment.
VirgoToday’s Moon inclines you to stick to the background, dear Virgo, as you recoup energy and reorient yourself. Mars transiting your solar second house these days is great for the motivation to build a project, a business, or your resources. Today, with Mars forming a square with Pluto, tension or impatience can occur if things are not going as planned. Conflicts or frustrations are possible with finances, values, and ideas that clash with those of someone in your life or trigger fears. There can be resentments emerging and a tendency to push for answers you may not honestly want to receive in the end. Use intense emotions and compulsions constructively, if possible, or aim to use this window into problematic attachments to improve your life. Keep in mind that it can be challenging to maintain proportion when Mars and Pluto challenge one another.
LibraToday’s Moon inclines you to light, detached, and easy activities, dear Libra. However, a Mars-Pluto square can add a layer of tension. With Mars currently transiting your sign, it can feel personal. On the one hand, you can feel inspired to take charge of your life, but on the other, you might struggle with managing excess energy effectively. This transit makes maintaining a sense of proportion challenging, and you may be dealing with impatience, pride, or misdirected anger. Or, you could face some resistance to getting what you want or accomplishing what you set out to do. Avoid manipulative tactics that will serve only to put more pressure on you. Consider that if you’re dwelling on something making you miserable, backing off a little can be a relief. Make it your goal not to make a mountain out of a molehill, but let this aspect show you where resentments have been building, perhaps to unhealthy levels.
ScorpioThe Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to focus on your long-term objectives. However, today’s Mars-Pluto square can bring up distractions. Mars will enter your sign on the 12th but will continue to transit your privacy sector until then. It’s a good period for clearing the decks for new beginnings. Today, unresolved tension or resentment can lead to regrettable words or poor timing. It’s not very easy to ask for what you want directly. You might hope instead that others intuit your needs, but this leaves you vulnerable to allowing others’ actions (or inactions) to decide your mood. Do your best to ease and settle your mind. Being kind to yourself may involve letting a matter go, as challenging as that may be. Rather than waste time on resentment, aim to use frustration to motivate you to improve something in your life.
SagittariusYour natural charm is on the increase today, dear Sagittarius, with the Moon traveling in harmony with your sign. You might discover exciting new interests. However, a Mars-Pluto square can produce some tension. Mars in your solar eleventh house these days generally supports your efforts. However, with Mars under strain today, you could encounter some difficulties as you may meet stubbornness and rigidity. Conflicts involving values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries can easily cross the line and turn into power games or other forms of manipulation with this transit. Try not to hold on so tightly to your methods or approach that you alienate someone, and watch for others doing something similar now. Consider that any anger or frustration that emerges today can point you in the right direction regarding what needs healing and resolution.
CapricornTension or pressure is possible today with Mars and Pluto forming a square today, dear Capricorn. Mars continues to transit your solar tenth house until the 12th, motivating you to reach a goal. With Mars under strain today, however, keeping a sense of proportion can be challenging. You tend to become so focused on a matter that you fail to see other options. It works fine if you use it to push forward a productive goal or pour your passion into something that genuinely needs undivided attention. However, if you’re dwelling on something that is not yet ready to push forward, problems can ensue. Aim to let go of issues that aren’t progressing and wait for a better time to pour your energy into these things. If you look closely at emerging feelings or reactions today, you’ll get a nice window into areas where you or someone in your life is overly attached and could use a breather or perspective.
AquariusWith the Moon in your partnership sector all day, dear Aquarius, you more readily gain cooperation and appreciation. Still, the energies of today’s Mars-Pluto square can put some pressure on you. There is a tendency to fixate or dwell on a topic even if it’s not working for you. Watch for insisting on your way or perspective so adamantly that it causes you stress or strains a relationship. This transit can instead suggest an internal struggle with a fear that seems to hold you back from pursuing a challenge or passion. Watch that you are not your own worst enemy today by saying or doing things that invite adverse reactions. While you feel slightly more emotionally vulnerable than usual, you’re also resilient.
PiscesWith the Moon in your sector of work and habits all day, dear Pisces, you want to take care of business. You more readily see the small things that might be out of place in your life. A Mars-Pluto square can put the pressure on, however. Mars in your intimacy sector inclines you to dig deep, investigate, observe, and strategize. Today, a clash with a matter of values or the understanding of a commitment can emerge. This transit tends to pull up buried frustration or anger, and you tend to not only see the problems but also dwell on them if you’re not careful. What starts as a passionate feeling about something or someone could quickly become frustrating. Avoid senseless power struggles with others, but feel things and attempt to understand any darker matter that surfaces from deep inside.
