Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIt can be tempting to take on more with a Mercury-Jupiter aspect active today, dear Aries, but it’s not the time to expand. It’s a better period for improving, restoring, and tweaking current work. This aspect can stir a disagreement first before you arrive at a helpful perspective. Without a clear direction, you may feel restless, and letting go of overthinking helps you see the bigger picture. Aim to consider that you’re learning through your differences and finding new motivation to get past obstacles. Strive to enjoy the moment without borrowing from the future. Fortunately, a Sun-Pluto trine is also active, and it’s good for finding ways to improve your work and public image or reputation with higher-ups. You can be determined to make progress with daily affairs, chores, or health programs and routines. You’re feeling enthusiastic about improving your health and daily routines, and while it’s not an ideal time to start a brand new program, it’s strong for making plans. Efforts to organize, tidy, edit, review, and reform or reuse are all favored now.
TaurusYou can be wrestling with expectations today, dear Taurus. A Mercury-Jupiter opposition suggests some back and forth or vacillation. Details may not be apparent or precise, but the bigger picture can inspire you. Your desire to grow is dominating. Later today, you instinctively recognize that if you stick only with what’s familiar, you won’t have learning opportunities. You can be determined to connect more deeply with personal interests, hobbies, or a special person. You’re looking at the world in new and exciting ways, and you gravitate to purposeful activities. Pleasantly strong feelings can figure strongly. Creative projects can benefit from editing and revamping, as it’s not the best time to begin a new endeavor. Fortunately, a Sun-Pluto influence aids you in seeing what’s worth keeping.
GeminiYou require more mental space and freedom than usual, dear Gemini, and a little change can keep things exciting. It’s essential to keep your perspective–do your best to avoid jumping to a quick conclusion about someone in your life. Later today, you’re finding extra special meaning in the connections you make. You gravitate to endeavors with long-term potential. You’re in a practical mindset, helping you see what is truly valuable and worth your effort — and what isn’t! This can be especially true for family and domestic matters, but work or studying can also benefit. You can find it easier to find supporters. Your loved ones feel more confident about you, and you’re fearless about facing the deeper meaning of things or getting to the heart of problems right now.
CancerThere could be too many choices today, dear Cancer, and it’s difficult to see your priorities. Aim to avoid too big expectations right now. A Sun-Pluto later today helps even things out. Seeing problem areas more clearly or facing truths can lead to a restructuring of activities and massive improvements to your projects, and possibly also a relationship. This transit favors learning endeavors, financial activities, and creative pursuits. You could be budgeting, revising, reorganizing, and simplifying in these areas. Reconstructing old ideas or fixing and renewing communications equipment is in focus. You are learning to communicate more efficiently and authentically, and today you can see the benefits of doing so. Discussions with a partner, counselor, or good friend can be helpful and might even lead to life-changing improvements.
LeoA Mercury-Jupiter transit can mean people are too wrapped up in their own ideas to truly listen, dear Leo, but reaching a middle ground can be rewarding and instructional. Watch for expecting far too much from a situation. Aim to keep things moderate. You have a Sun-Pluto trine working in your favor later today. While it’s directly affecting your practical affairs, it also 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 discover activities and projects that make full use of your talents and skills. Your desire to improve, grow, and develop is strong now, especially regarding income, work, and health. It can be a time for self-improvement through better attention to finances, work, and health.
VirgoMercury opposes Jupiter today, dear Virgo, and it can play with your perceptions. You may not see things clearly with money and relationships. It may be best to dream up exciting plans, but avoid expecting too much too soon. Later today, a Sun-Pluto trine is empowering, with the Sun in your sign and Pluto encouraging you to grow and improve. Resourcefulness helps you turn something old into something new or a negative into a positive. You might even “recycle” frustrations or hurts and use their energy to improve your life. You can be determined to give a particular project, relationship, or endeavor your all. Refine, remake, and reform now, and you’ll be doing well. Releasing an emotional weight is a possibility now.
LibraMisperceptions are possible with Mercury opposite Jupiter today, dear Libra. Someone could be opposing your ideas or plans, or you can barely get a word in edgewise. Later today, however, a Sun-Pluto transit helps you focus. You’re in great shape to recognize the need to make changes in your personal life, at home, or within. You can find valuable ways to improve your emotional life and domestic world today. If your instincts tell you to keep an important idea or project to yourself, it’s probably wise for the time being. Strategy pays off for financial and home-related endeavors today. You could be leaving some things behind and beginning anew on an emotional level. You’re in need of some healthy levels of introspection, as well as time to reflect, rest, and digest recent experiences and feelings. Financial and household matters can benefit from some extra attention, further thought, and strategy.
ScorpioAn opposition between Mercury and Jupiter could stir your desire to think big, dear Scorpio. Enjoy the optimism and open your mind to possibilities, but avoid overshooting for best results. Helping you with this is a Sun-Pluto transit. You can be in a good position to take charge of an issue related to a group, team, or friendship. Your powers of persuasion are strong, and you could gain some recognition for what you do and possibly what you say or believe. Your competent and insightful nature is in the spotlight. Relationships with others can be strengthened with communications that show you care. News or ideas exchanged now can light a fire under you — you are strongly motivated to get ahead, succeed and improve. Most appropriate activity today involves laying something to rest that is no longer serving your need to grow, evolve, and thrive.
SagittariusThere is some tendency to overdo or overestimate today, dear Sagittarius, with Mercury opposite Jupiter. You might especially look out for exaggeration ruining a good thing. Helping you with this is a Sun-Pluto transit later today. Your practical affairs can benefit from recognizing where you’ve been frivolous or wasteful, and where you might put your energy for the most benefit. Your ambition is stirring, and you can feel quite confident about what you might accomplish in the future. There can be moral or financial support or approval from a higher-up. It’s also strong for dedicated work or editing and refining a long-term project.
CapricornYou may battle feelings of restlessness or a need for change that’s difficult to direct in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn. However, as the day advances, it’s easier to tap into the focused energy of the Sun-Pluto trine. It’s an excellent aspect for making renovations — lasting changes that go deep and refresh your life, such as getting rid of bad habits, situations, and attitudes. 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 can feel more ambitious and recognize the benefits of learning more or expressing yourself more so you can advance your personal interests. You can be especially passionate about what you believe in and very convincing and persuasive with others. People more readily appreciate your intelligence and advice.
AquariusWhile you can be too easy to distract in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, and you should watch for overshooting, the day advances with more purpose. It can be a good time to rework a tricky situation into an empowering one. A Sun-Pluto aspect encourages you to grow, improve, and prioritize. You 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 might face a fear, kick a bad habit, or vow to improve your close relationships. You are likely to feel invigorated and refreshed. Insights into others, yourself, and relationships can be particularly helpful and insightful. You are drawn to activities that strengthen your resolve.
PiscesIt’s best not to jump to conclusions, dear Pisces, or to jump into decisions. Consider that you might have something helpful to learn from a disagreement. As the day advances, finding a purpose and concentrating are easier. With the Sun in your partnership sector in a favorable relationship with Pluto, you can feel especially 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. Social affairs get a boost. Focus on things that you already have going rather than taking on new things with Mercury still retrograde. Transforming, recycling, and organizing efforts are favored. Counseling and networking can also be in focus and valuable. You could be very attracted to someone mysterious or powerful.
