Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile it can be challenging to see relationships in plain terms today, dear Aries, transits are strong for finding ways to improve your work, public image, or reputation with higher-ups. You are determined to make progress with your chores, work, health programs, or routines. The desire to improve your health and daily habits is growing, and it’s motivating you now. Efforts to organize, tidy, edit, review, and reform or reuse are all in favor. If needed, you might take steps to improve your reputation with success. It’s not the time to take on more, but it’s excellent for enhancing, restoring, and tweaking what you already have going. While you often prefer to live life spontaneously, right now, you’d do well to observe, plan, and design. You can make significant headway with your projects or establish a fitness or nutrition program that holds great promise. Later today, others may not be on the same page as you. Focus on basics that are out of whack so that you can free yourself from guilt or doubts going forward. Today has a way of revealing problem areas and vulnerabilities, and while disappointing, it can be instructive.
TaurusYour desire to grow is at the foremost of your mind right now, dear Taurus. You instinctively recognize that you won’t have learning opportunities if you stick only with what’s familiar. You can be determined to connect more deeply with personal interests, hobbies, and possibly even a person now. It’s invigorating, serving as a tonic or refresher for your spirit. It’s more apparent to you today what is hindering your progress. As a result, problems seem more resolvable. Ideas have you looking at the world in new and exciting ways. Even so, you can be wrestling with expectations or battling waning enthusiasm in your social life later today. Because you’re more sensitive, others’ dramas can feel larger than life. People may not be receptive enough to cooperate efficiently so that independent work is favored. Rethink your strategies but don’t over-analyze emotions just for now.
GeminiToday, you’re finding extra special meaning in the connections you make, even the smallest ones, dear Gemini. You tend to gravitate to endeavors with long-term potential. Your practical frame of mind helps you see what is truly valuable and worth your effort — and what isn’t. It can be especially true for family and domestic matters. You’re ready to tackle a problem from the root, and you’re looking for the hidden message or agenda in whatever’s going on around you. Later today, people can be on the defensive, or tensions with restrictions or rules can play with your mood. You may see the downside of a situation, and this helps you weigh its pros and cons. Concerns or worries about money, relationships, work, or legal matters can take hold. Resolve to take a lesson from experiences encountered now, even if criticism surfaces.
CancerYou may be connecting with people and information that helps you get closer to your goals today, dear Cancer. Seeing problem areas more clearly or facing truths can lead to some restructuring of activities—improvements to your projects or your relationships can result. Budgeting, revising, reorganizing, and simplifying are all highly favored right now. You may be repurposing old ideas or fixing and renewing communications equipment. However, uncertainty or emotional reticence can be part of the picture later today. There could be feelings of being excluded or distanced. If others seem unsympathetic, find ways to rely on yourself for now. Cooperation may not be straightforward, but you could discover that you can handle a matter just fine on your own. Try to focus on positive, productive tasks despite distractions and some inconsistencies.
LeoYou have a Sun-Pluto trine working in your favor today, dear Leo. While this transit is directly affecting your practical affairs, it helps you personally since the Sun is your ruler and Pluto’s influence adds a little more clout to what you already have going for you. You may very well discover activities and projects that make full use of your talents and skills, and these can be showcased quite beautifully. Your desire to improve, grow, and develop is strong, especially with income, work, and health. It’s a time for self-improvement through better attention to these matters. Later today, there can be some concerns about pleasing everyone. Aim instead to get a true sense of what you want and what you should do instead of worrying about extending yourself more than that. You might discover that you’ve been putting too much energy into something that only serves to drag you down. Adjustments are necessary if this is the case.
VirgoToday’s Sun-Pluto trine is empowering, dear Virgo, with the Sun in your sign and Pluto encouraging you to grow and improve. Even so, energies are mixed today. While you can feel quite determined to give a particular project, relationship, or endeavor your “all,” a Venus-Saturn influence can skew your perceptions of a situation. If you find that you’re suddenly running out of steam, it likely has to do with a temporary lack of inspiration. Fortunately, your resourcefulness helps you turn something old into something new or a negative into a positive. This is also a time for riding on frustrations or hurts and using their energy to improve your life. You can see what needs adjusting and possibly what needs to be left behind to feel stronger moving forward. Getting your message across socially can be challenging with blockages or restrictions in play that mainly relate to chores and responsibilities. While a little dry in spots, days like today are helpful for finding your own way.
LibraExcellent energy is with you for recognizing the need to make changes in your personal life, at home, or within, dear Libra. You can find valuable ways to improve your emotional and domestic world today. You may be sitting on an important idea or project, and it’s probably wise to keep things under wraps for the time being. Strategy pays off for financial and home-related endeavors at the moment. Use this time to eliminate waste, as you’re in a better position to see what you can do without, what can stay, and what needs to improve. You’re in need of some healthy levels of introspection, as well as time to reflect, rest, and digest recent experiences and feelings. Later today, watch for letting far too much in at the expense of your sense of contentment. You may see areas where you’ve been restricted or lagging more clearly through current events and musings.
ScorpioYou’re in a good position for taking charge of an issue related to a group, team, or friendship today, dear Scorpio. Your powers of persuasion are strong, and you might gain some recognition for what you do and possibly what you say or believe. Your competent and trustworthy nature is on show. Communications that show you care can strengthen relationships. News or ideas you exchange now can light a fire under you–you’re strongly motivated to get ahead, succeed, and improve. Conversations with friends or information coming in can be empowering, supportive, or otherwise especially useful and possibly even life-changing. Good energy is with you for identifying areas of your life that don’t serve you well. Later today, transits tend to highlight our differences or problems, requiring some adjustments. You can be indecisive as you wrestle with conflicting needs and approaches. Others may be unduly critical, but if so, you may very well bounce back in a stronger position.
SagittariusYour practical affairs can benefit from seeing where you’ve been frivolous or wasteful, dear Sagittarius, and where you might put your energy for the most benefit. You can feel quite confident, and your confidence is boosted further by moral or financial support or approval from a higher-up. Today’s Sun-Pluto transit is helpful for dedicated work or editing and refining a long-term project. It’s easier to know your priorities, and the current spirit is constructive and growth-oriented. There can be financial gains or turnarounds. Later today, people can be harder to please, and a lack of natural flow makes it difficult to find satisfaction. Fortunately, it’s temporary, and the adjustments you make as a result can ultimately be useful to you–the more you strengthen weak areas, the easier it will be to bounce back from disappointments in the future.
CapricornToday’s Sun-Pluto trine is an excellent aspect for making renovations — lasting changes that refresh your life and that go deep, dear Capricorn. Getting rid of bad habits, situations, and attitudes can be part of this. You may be considering ways to bring changes to your life and discovering that making internal changes is important, but so is taking a chance or two by learning and exploring beyond your usual bounds. You recognize the benefits of learning more or expressing yourself more to advance your interests. It can be a time to push your limits and explore ideas that you normally wouldn’t. With some timing problems later today, it’s not a good time to take things to heart. Keep things simple for best results, and find ways to reduce stress. Take steps to cut back on areas where you’ve been overdoing, and it will feel good, ultimately.
AquariusToday’s Sun-Pluto aspect encourages you to grow, improve, and prioritize, dear Aquarius. You might feel stronger through your intimate connections. On an emotional level, it’s a great time to take charge and tap into your inner courage. You may be facing a fear, kicking a bad habit, or vowing to improve your close relationships now. It’s easier to recognize self-destructive patterns or old habits in your relationships that could use some renovation. There can be opportunities to heal and reinvigorate yourself, mainly through some level of solitude or peace. Because there can be minor disappointments and energy levels can dip temporarily later today, try not to take on too much. If someone important to you seems distant or disinterested, try to detach yourself and go about your own business.
PiscesWith the Sun in your partnership sector in a good relationship with Pluto today, dear Pisces, you can feel more supported or motivated by others and your relationships. Efforts to strengthen a partnership can be rewarding now, and pushing boundaries just a touch can lead to impressive results. Transforming, recycling, and organizing efforts are in favor right now. You might feel good about your ability to lean on someone if you need to, and you could also find that others support your ambitions, even fanning the flames of your passions. However, you might feel somewhat stifled or limited by circumstances later today–people may not be very forthcoming or receptive. Consider pulling back a little to assess your goals, particularly those related to your social life, love life, or educational pursuits. Give attention to small problems that help free you up for more exciting times ahead.
