Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour interest in work and health is stronger these days with the Sun’s transit of your solar sixth house, dear Aries. Today, the Sun opposes Neptune, however, and you can struggle with finding a healthy balance between work and rest or between physical health and mental/emotional health. There could be a disappointment or a misjudgment, and energy levels are up and down until you arrive at a healthy middle. You may need to tame some of your expectations and temper your energy to get there. Today’s transits remind you to respect rather than challenge your natural body energy rhythms. You could also recognize the need for more inspiration that can help refuel you. The Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, and this is another cue to wind down and center yourself.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus, boosting your curiosity and desire for variety. While it’s a generally strong time of year for most creative, expressive, and romantic pursuits, today’s Sun-Neptune opposition reminds you to manage your expectations. If you’ve lost touch with your very valid needs to dream, imagine, and believe, you might feel some discontent today. There can be an uncertain or ambiguous situation related to a friendship, or you could long for a kindred spirit connection. Because it’s temporarily hard to see things clearly, it may be best not to commit or decide important matters. If you’re feeling uninspired, you might benefit from taking a small break to refresh and reorient yourself.
GeminiToday’s Sun-Neptune opposition can leave you feeling vulnerable to ups and downs related to reputation or career matters, dear Gemini, or family and living conditions. You may not know where you stand on an issue or where you’re headed, undermining your motivation levels. Someone in your life may not be on board with your goals or lack of defined goals. You’re sensitive about your reputation, and ambiguities about your long-term plans or career can affect your enjoyment of home life. You might struggle with your intuition, unsure whether to trust it, making it an uncertain time for decision-making. In truth, your living conditions, relationship with family, and personal life are strengthening this month, and the current emotional dip is a reminder to adjust your expectations or your dreams and goals to better match your current situation. Your search for more meaning to your life is an ongoing one, and you’re bound to deal with speed bumps along the way.
CancerToday’s Sun-Neptune opposition can give you pause for thought, dear Cancer. There can be some confusion, disappointment, or a temporary questioning of motivation experienced now, and it’s likely to revolve around communications, transportation, projects, and learning. Be a little more vigilant if working with facts and figures, and watch that you don’t communicate in ways that leave things too open to interpretation. Dream and create, but be cautious when it comes to more practical matters. If someone is trying to get a commitment or definite answer out of you, and it doesn’t feel right, try to defer it to a more confident time. You’re generally going strong with personal interests these days, and today’s dip in motivation levels is temporary. You get the chance to figure out which areas of your life need special attention. It may not be easy to get the information or directions you need, and patience is needed. Aim to wait things out since the timing isn’t right quite yet. The Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, bringing your emotions to the surface.
LeoThere has been a stronger focus on the material and physical world these days, dear Leo. Today, experiences may illuminate some level of spiritual discontent with the Sun’s opposition to Neptune. There may be some confusion surrounding financial or intimate matters. You might face a situation where you need to draw boundaries with others who are draining you of time or energy. This yearly transit can illuminate the need for more attention to your spiritual and emotional needs. On practical levels, avoid making larger purchases as well as lending and borrowing, just for now, until you see things more clearly. If you find yourself unsure about someone’s intentions, it’s not the time to push for problem-solving or to make important decisions, but it’s a good time to examine your needs. Look for areas of life where your expectations may be so high that they put undue pressure on you or your relationships. If someone is overstepping their bounds, observe and consider what you might do to correct the situation. The Moon heads into your privacy sector for a couple of days, which is another indication that you need some time out or more rest.
VirgoTransits these days tend to raise your spirits, dear Virgo. It’s a generally good time to advance your personal interests. However, today’s Sun-Neptune opposition might temporarily deflate you until you reorient yourself. Someone or something may burst your bubble, or you could be feeling discontent or misunderstood now. For best results, focus on the things you love instead of pinning your hopes elsewhere. If you are unprepared or disorganized, any drama occurring now can feel worse than it is. Recognize that you are more sensitive on emotional, spiritual, and physical levels right now, and do your best to break from overdoing or overthinking. You might want to connect with something spiritual or mystical to find more meaning in your life. Blending this with your recent focus on physical concerns will be ideal. It’s also wise to avoid the tendency to project fantasies onto people and situations, as you may make more of them than they deserve, good or bad.
LibraWith the Sun’s yearly opposition to Neptune occurring now, dear Libra, there can be some lack of clarity to deal with, largely due to expectations. Routine matters can feel more challenging if you’re not feeling motivated or directed. A lot is going on behind the scenes these days, and due to this distraction, you may not always feel on top of your game. While you might envision an exciting project today, it may not be straightforward to get it off the ground. Boundaries when it comes to work and service are unclear. You might feel overwhelmed with things to do but lacking a plan of action. Your intuition is highly stimulated, however, and if you can convince yourself to trust it, you can be in a great position to help someone out and feel good about doing so. For best results, treat this time as a period for regaining fuel and motivation or inspiration. Today is best for observing rather than deciding.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into the sector of adventure, spirit, and higher learning in your solar chart, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to reach for the stars. While it’s a generally strong period for your dreams, hopes, and social life, you could experience some ups and downs today. With the Sun opposite Neptune, you may get a reminder of specific unrealized dreams now. This annual event can leave you feeling that something’s missing in your life, but it can be hard to pinpoint, resulting in vague discontent. Confusion with relationships, desires, and attractions are possible until you reorient yourself. You might see-saw between fantasy and reality until you find a middle ground. Romance or affectionate feelings can be draining today if you don’t know where you stand. Accepting that you may not need to know for the time being can be rewarding. You might benefit from taking a break to clear your head and perhaps seek new sources of inspiration. Look for the beauty in your life in the present for best results now, but don’t dismiss yearnings altogether since they can point you in the right direction with some moderation and common sense in the mix.
SagittariusWhile this is a generally strong time of year for meeting your responsibilities and pursuing your goals, dear Sagittarius, there can be a temporary dip today. A Sun-Neptune opposition can serve as a reminder to align your goals with your current dreams or to pay more attention to your need for extra magic, imagination, or spirituality in your life if you’ve been ignoring these drives. It can be a slightly disorienting or confusing time, but going with the flow and accepting that you may not need to know everything at this point can help you. Ambiguities related to living conditions or arrangements, with family, or insecurities about your capabilities seem more prominent today, affecting the pursuit of your goals, career, or responsibilities. However, taking a breather to get into better touch with your intuition on these matters can help redirect you. You might find new and improved sources of inspiration in the process.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Neptune opposition can serve to spotlight your unrealized dreams or areas of discontent, dear Capricorn. A temporary lack of direction or inspiration can leave you especially sensitive to distractions. You might question what to believe with misinformation circulating. It’s not easy to concentrate, and communications may be less than satisfying. Be careful not to commit until the fog clears and you’re certain of the facts. It’s a good time to reconsider or examine your expectations if they’re spoiling perfectly good moments. However, if you’ve overlooked your need for inspiration, now is the time to give it more attention. This transit can be a call to pay more attention to your imaginative and idealistic side regularly.
AquariusThe Sun opposes Neptune today, and it’s an influence that can call attention to areas of discontent, dear Aquarius. It may be best to adopt a wait-and-see approach and avoid investing time, resources, and energy into uncertain endeavors. A financial or ownership matter can be up in the air just for now. It can be difficult to establish or enforce boundaries, either with others or with your money and energy. Watch for hanging onto a false, idealized image of a person, project, or relationship. Uncertainty about your means and resources can figure strongly, affecting other areas of your life. Instead of pushing for clarity, it may be better to wait things out. Going forward, you might decide to pay more attention to your emotional, mental, and spiritual needs while protecting your material ones. Accepting that the full picture may not be available to you right now can help you reorient yourself today. However, if you’ve been disorganized with money or unclear about your resources and capabilities, you might resolve to take small steps to sort these issues.
PiscesYou may not be seeing people plainly and situations realistically temporarily, dear Pisces, with the Sun opposite Neptune. It may be that others are not seeing you correctly. It’s best not to encourage this, even if it’s tempting to avoid discomfort in the present. Ultimately, misconceptions will work against you. You may want to escape if someone seems to be pressuring you for a definite response or commitment. Since it’s more fulfilling to attach yourself to dreams that inspire you than it is to bank on dreams that let you down, don’t be afraid to see the holes in your current plans and visions–they can help you improve. Today’s energies tend to make your unrealized needs, dreams, and wishes feel bigger, but it’s temporary.
