Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesStrong differences of opinion or a feeling that others are ignoring your input are potential issues with current transits, dear Aries, but it’s temporary. You might decide to wait things out or steer conversations and thoughts to the positive. It’s not about avoiding problems–instead, you might choose not to waste time on matters that you can’t truly change at this time. If a direct route to your desires isn’t possible today, develop strategies and avoid pushing or taking roundabout paths. Today’s Moon finds you rather intense and pleasantly serious. You may thoroughly enjoy delving deeply into a venture, project, or even line of thought, and your attention is longer than usual.
TaurusIn many ways, you’re whipping your life into shape these days, dear Taurus, with energetic Mars in your sector of routines, work, and health. Today, however, there is some tendency to push things a little too far, and you might experience a conflict between your will and your performance. This off-rhythm can leave you uncertain about how to express your extra energy. Aim to avoid pushing things that are better left to run their natural course. If you can set your own pace, do so now. Fortunately, as the day advances, you’re in a great position to solidify a friendship or partnership through special attention, nurture, and care. Practical shows of affection work exceptionally well right now.
GeminiWith a Mars-Jupiter challenging aspect active today, dear Gemini, it’s best to watch for going overboard in your enthusiasm. Avoid pushing too hard or gambling in your personal life, as something that looks very attractive may prove useless later. Alternatively, a desire that comes on suddenly may subside too quickly. Guilt can undermine your confidence and might be an underlying issue in the strange behaviors of others right now, even if it’s in disguise. Sometimes, people treat you poorly because they are unhappy with themselves. Focus on those things that you can improve instead of dead ends. Fortunately, the day is solid for taking care of business quite happily.
CancerThere is cheerful, playful energy with you, dear Cancer. However, there’s some tendency to push something that’s better left alone or the opposite: to back off when the timing is right. Watch that you don’t stress over things that don’t honestly matter in the long run. Protect your interests, but recognize when you need to let go or walk away. There may be a conflict between your social and home life or a desire to branch out versus the need to stay put and replenish your energies. It’s best to stay grounded and remember that some situations are somewhat tenuous temporarily. That said, today is excellent for showing you care for someone through your support. It’s also a standout time for putting extra love and effort into a creative project.
LeoThe temptation to push too hard or go over the top to get one’s way is strong today, dear Leo, but it is unlikely to bring the desired results due to challenging transits. While you can feel enthusiastic about getting your message across or getting where you want to go, it’s best to watch for the tendency to trip up in the process. There are better times for self-promotion or winning others over to your ideas. Aim to keep things moderate on all fronts, but especially on a professional level. It’s important to avoid taking on new work just because you feel you are capable today. Still, another influence in play today is strong for putting effort into making your life more secure or comfortable.
VirgoWith today’s Mars-Jupiter minor challenge, dear Virgo, somebody might promise more than they can deliver, and it may very well be with good intentions. The problem is that it’s hard to judge our ability to follow through. By extension, it’s best to watch that excessive enthusiasm doesn’t lead you to make poor choices and watch your wallet, as there can be impulsiveness that might become regrettable later on. Avoid the idea that you should make a quick decision when, in fact, a matter needs more time to unfold. As the day advances, you can be quite productive, particularly with a special person onboard, or you have the chance to bond with someone through solid shows of concern and care.
LibraWith a minor challenging aspect between Mars and Jupiter today, dear Libra, some areas of life temporarily lack stability. It’s best to avoid hasty moves as you may trip over yourself or misrepresent yourself. It’s best to exercise patience since the timing is off right now. Consider the potential cost of your actions and decisions at this time, but if you can’t quite come to a conclusion that feels right in your gut, then set it aside if you can return to the issue later. As the day advances, you might thoroughly enjoy putting extra love, attention, and effort into your practical affairs, work, health pursuits, or money-making ventures. The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, and you’re focusing on what you have and need.
ScorpioWith today’s Mars-Jupiter transit, it’s best to be aware of a tendency to be impatient or too hasty, dear Scorpio. Something from the past could emerge that frustrates you, or there could be interactions today that begin with good intentions and then go too far and end in frustration. Lifting yourself above unnecessary arguments and defensive stances is probably best. Minor delays can be frustrating, but they might give you time to think things through, ultimately bringing benefits. Happily, you can be especially productive and energetic when making refinements and adjustments as opposed to launching new projects or generating all-new ideas. You might also thoroughly enjoy pouring your energies into something you love later today. Creative projects and relationships alike can benefit from tangible shows of love, care, and concern. You may be in the position of caregiver now.
SagittariusIt’s best to rein things in if you feel you’re going too far today, dear Sagittarius, as Mars and Jupiter form an awkward angle, playing with natural rhythms and instincts. There’s a tendency for people to promise more than they can reasonably deliver or to try to push others’ limits. You could find yourself in disagreement with friends or associates about how to move forward with your goals, or there could be a conflict between taking care of work and routine matters and attending to your social life. Expecting too much too soon is the potential problem. Aim to relax and trust that things will unfold as they should. Fortunately, later today, you’re prepared to make constructive use of time to yourself. You’re also in a fabulous position to show loved ones your support.
CapricornYou can be eager but may be overreaching today, dear Capricorn, with a minor challenging aspect between Mars and Jupiter. As such, try to avoid taking on too much work or too many responsibilities now, if possible. With optimism, sometimes comes big promises or new commitments that might later feel burdensome. There can also be tension if you feel that a project isn’t moving quickly. Instead, you may be at a loss as to how to pursue your desires. There is work to do and problems to sort out, but take things easy and refrain from forcing anything, as errors are very likely if you push under today’s transits. Fortunately, especially as the day advances, you’re in an excellent position to pour your love and energy into a communications project, personal interest, or venture. It’s also a fine time to show your care for a friend through your help and kindness.
AquariusYou can be enthusiastic today, dear Aquarius, but with a Mars-Jupiter transit in play, there is some tendency to go overboard or to overlook or ignore others’ plans or ideas. While there’s a forgiving theme to the day, it’s better not to push things. Instead, let others state their case and allow the facts to reveal themselves. Otherwise, you can feel overwhelmed with too many choices. Proving a point may not be worth the energy or effort right now. It may be best to simplify your life rather than add to it temporarily. Especially as the day advances, however, you’re well-positioned to show you care about your work or practical affairs through the extra effort you put into these matters. It’s an excellent time for working on what you love.
PiscesWith a tricky aspect between Mars and Jupiter in play, dear Pisces, there is some tendency to go over the top. Pushing for an answer is likely to backfire today. The timing can be entirely off, particularly in an intimate relationship. As such, it’s best to keep communications simple and straightforward. Relationships are more successful with flexibility. Avoid wasting time see-sawing between two choices. Fortunately, as the day advances, you’re embracing responsibilities and duties. It feels good to tackle problem areas and get things behind you. At the same time, the Moon spends the day in your sector of the higher mind, and it’s enjoyable to tap into a brainwave. You’re looking ahead.
