Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou want to pay more attention to your personal interests, but you also want to take care of business, dear Aries, and this conflict can be intense today. It’s not easy to be productive without succumbing to distractions, and there can be a tendency to take things very personally. Your interactions may be more loaded than usual, and boredom may lead to a conflict or clash. You might also struggle to achieve a healthy balance between work and rest or physical 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. Differences ideally lead to new insights and fine-tuning that improves matters. The most benefits come from observation rather than action today.
TaurusToday’s transits can stir up some dissatisfaction, dear Taurus, ideally fueling a desire to improve your life. Feelings can run hot and cold, and timing can be off on a social level. Possessiveness or competitiveness can be themes. It’s best not to mix emotions and practical matters right now, although it’s a good idea to identify areas of your life where imagination is missing. Aim also to give others the benefit of the doubt and avoid jumping into–or out of–something too quickly. You may want to keep an eye on spending since impatient Mars is under strain and is currently transiting your money sector. Also, a Sun-Neptune opposition is an annual event that reminds you to work on your expectations. It’s not a time of clarity, making it better to wait out important matters. If you’re temporarily uninspired, you might benefit from taking a small break to refresh yourself. Today is not ideal for opening your heart or taking a gamble–it’s time to slow down and catch your breath, trusting it’s for the best!
GeminiAspects today seem to highlight areas of dissatisfaction or disagreement, dear Gemini. Others might be pushing your buttons. Or, if you’re feeling a little on edge or unsatisfied, the temptation to rile others up can come on. Aim to detach yourself just enough to stay in a calm place and work things out. However, pay attention to what’s emerging from within since you may revisit unresolved problems later. Different perspectives can be frustrating today, but they can also be good learning experiences. Still, it’s best to recognize that conflicts today may focus too much on surface problems, leaving core issues untouched. Looking more closely at what’s happening can be helpful. A Sun-Neptune opposition today can leave you vulnerable to ups and downs related to reputation or career matters, and possibly with family or living conditions. You may not know where you stand on an issue or where you’re headed, and these things can interfere with your motivation levels. If you’re struggling with intuition, making the bigger decisions may not be wise. In truth, your living conditions, relationship with family, and personal life are strengthening this month. The current emotional dip is a reminder to adjust your expectations or dreams and goals to better match your current situation.
CancerWe may not be on the same wavelengths today, dear Cancer, making it tricky to interact in healthy ways. You may want to wait out making important decisions if possible since it’s hard to be objective right now. These temperamental conditions can seem random, but they could push problems that have already been brewing to the surface, bringing issues to light. Quicker resolutions become possible. Consider that sudden desires may mask the real root of a problem today, and aim to look deeper for best results. Desires can seem pressing now, and there can be some irritating competitiveness or internal pressures to perform to manage. You can be feeling especially sensitive and may put up a protective wall around you to cope. However, if you give off the impression that your skin is thick, you could end up with hurt feelings, so an in-between would be ideal. There can be some confusion, disappointment, or simply a temporary questioning of motivation experienced today, and for you, it is 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 a way that can be misinterpreted.
LeoToday’s transits can raise tensions, dear Leo, ideally leading to enlightenment. You might feel pressure to do something different or seek something new, but without a clear direction, you can feel restless. Clashes are possible, especially if impatience takes over. Although challenging, it’s better to get in touch with your true desires so that restlessness doesn’t lead you astray. Desires that come on suddenly and insistently are more likely to arise from boredom than genuine need or want with today’s influences. It stirs up dissatisfaction with current conditions, which could lead to a creative solution. Avoid making too-quick decisions and choices if possible. Also 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. This yearly transit can inspire 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.
VirgoAt times today, touchy situations and people can be challenging to navigate, dear Virgo. Rising above conflicts is possible with some patience. Try not to burn yourself out by pushing too hard or expecting instant results from your efforts. Aim not to talk ahead of yourself or jump into action too quickly based solely on momentary feelings and impulses. Remind yourself that desires coming on suddenly today may not truly reflect what you want or need. You may be swinging from idealistic images of someone or a situation to imagining the worst. If you are unprepared or disorganized, any drama occurring now can feel worse than it is. For best results, focus on the things you love instead of pinning your hopes elsewhere. Note that dissatisfaction with a current situation can be harder to ignore, but it could motivate you to make improvements.
LibraIt’s all too easy to become frustrated with others regarding an idea or belief today, dear Libra, especially if they’re not truly listening. You may want to escape but can’t decide how to do so. A tense atmosphere can make it difficult to look past minor problems and challenges today. Certainly, energies are on the temperamental side. Issues of a personal nature may not be well-received with Venus, in your privacy sector, forming a square to Mars in your house of expansion. There can be some inner frustration or angst experienced now that can be hard to ignore. As well, the Sun opposes Neptune, and there can be some lack of clarity to deal with, particularly related to what is expected of you and what you expect from others. Work and service are in strong focus, but it can be difficult dealing with routine matters if you’re not feeling motivated or directed.
ScorpioTransits today can stir up dissatisfaction, dear Scorpio, ideally leading to new directions. A situation can leave you feeling unappreciated or put upon, and feelings are complicated. There can be competitive energy at play in your relationships. With today’s Venus-Mars square, you may think that filling a sudden desire will answer all your problems, but it’s likely to be a mere distraction. Dig deeper, and you may find that the surface topic has little to do with the real problem. You could feel torn between filling your own needs and pleasing someone. Further, with the Sun opposing Neptune, there can be reminders of unrealized dreams. This annual transit spotlights what’s missing in your life. The tendency is to see-saw between fantasy and reality until you find a middle ground. Look for the beauty in your life in the present for best results now, but don’t dismiss yearnings altogether–they may point you in the right direction with moderation and common sense in the mix.
SagittariusTransits today can stir up areas of unrest, dear Sagittarius, ideally motivating you to make positive changes. Reactions can be quick, and people may be working on a short fuse. Rhythms in love or patterns in relating can be a little off, leaving it difficult to find satisfaction. Feelings run hot and cold, mainly due to timing problems and impatience. While there can be a temperamental or competitive tone to the day, you might gain deeper insight into your work, goals, or ambitions through trial and error. It’s a generally strong time of year for meeting your responsibilities and pursuing your goals, but there can be a temporary dip today. Ambiguities related to living conditions or insecurities about your capabilities seem more prominent today, affecting the pursuit of your goals, career, or responsibilities. However, taking a breather to get in better touch with your intuition on these matters can help redirect you. You might find new and improved sources of inspiration in the process. As much as you want to take action, listening and observing are more likely to serve you well.
CapricornTransits today tend to stir up areas where you’re feeling unfulfilled, dear Capricorn. Venus has inspired your interest in non-routine experiences and an enlightened view of your life. On the other hand, Mars has encouraged you to get the job done or attend to your duties. You can manage both, but integrating these things can seem especially challenging today as Venus and Mars clash. Be protective of information or feelings that you typically want to keep quiet, as an impulsive tendency could cause later regret. Even so, friction can lead to new insights and a better understanding of yourself and others. Another aspect in play is a Sun-Neptune opposition can have you questioning what to believe. A temporary lack of direction or inspiration can leave you especially sensitive to distractions, which makes it challenging to get things done. It’s best not to commit or to make an official statement under these conditions, so aim to wait things out. It’s a good time to reconsider or examine your expectations.
AquariusIt may be best to second-guess sudden desires and urges today, dear Aquarius, as they’re unlikely to address genuine needs with current transits. People are impulsive and more disagreeable, and tricky areas tend to involve sharing money or responsibilities. While frustrations may have been building for some time, impatience to handle matters can overcome you now. Complicating matters, an annual Sun-Neptune transit can point to ambiguities. It’s best to be cautious with investing extra time, resources, or energy into uncertain endeavors. Wait things out rather than pushing for clarity and resolve to pay more attention to your spiritual needs while protecting your material ones for best results. Aim to entertain new ideas and perspectives but wait until today’s tensions subside before drawing firm conclusions.
PiscesWith today’s transits, areas of discontent can be more apparent, dear Pisces, and contradictory feelings and desires are likely. There could be tensions, unrest, or even emotional fireworks, particularly in family relationships and partnerships. You may be dealing with impatience or what seems to be bad timing in your interactions. Just for now, you may not be seeing people plainly and situations realistically. It’s even more possible that others are not seeing you correctly, and you should try your best not to encourage this, as tempting as it may be to avoid discomfort in the present since it works against you ultimately. Since it’s far better to attach yourself to dreams that inspire you than those that let you down, don’t be afraid of holes you might see in your current plans and visions. Save important ideas or topics for an easier, more flowing time if you can.
