Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Mars opposite Neptune today, dear Aries, some things are hanging heavily in the air, and they keep you in limbo now. Watch for exhausting yourself, but also the other extreme–procrastination. You may be doing a balancing act now! Fluctuating energy levels are likely about inspiration, and pausing or taking a timeout can help you regain it. If you’ve been working too hard or doing too much for others, you can feel the drain now. It’s vital to balance your life by making more time for spiritual, imaginative, and reflective activities. Otherwise, you might lose some of the motivation and spark you’ve enjoyed recently. If you have a past matter to resolve or disorganization has been an issue in your life, keep in mind that getting over this hurdle can be a real relief. With your routines, add some creative elements to the mix to keep motivation levels up.
TaurusWith Mars in your solar fifth house these days, dear Taurus, you might throw yourself into personal interests, hobbies, and possibly even a relationship. Today, you can be wrestling with expectations, battling waning enthusiasm, or dealing with some confusion or uncertainty in your social life now. Mars is opposite Neptune, and something up in the air feels heavy or drains you of energy for now. You might wrestle with conflicting desires, and because you’re more sensitive today, others’ dramas can feel larger than life. Taking a step back from the action is appropriate until you gain some perspective. Don’t let a lack of direction leave you behind. Clarifying a matter with a friend may be helpful, but patience may be necessary before this happens. Aim to get in touch with what you truly want or need, and consider the creative, imaginative, or spiritual touches that may be missing or overlooked.
GeminiWith Mars opposite Neptune today, dear Gemini, you could be flip-flopping between feeling determined and feeling uninspired, but it’s temporary. It can also signal that you need some time to find and connect with your passion, enthusiasm, and inspiration before pressing on. It can be challenging to get the comfort you crave, especially if a lack of direction weighs you down. A home project or family matter can hit a snag. Or, whether to pursue a personal interest or a professional responsibility can be an issue today. Feeling less confident about your plans, goals, or ambitions is temporary. Aim to find healthy ways to rest, escape, and renew your spirit, but don’t let your practical affairs slide too much in the process.
CancerToday’s Mars-Neptune opposition reminds you to pay special attention to the creative and imaginative side of your plans, dear Cancer. It’s not the time to ignore your needs for inspiration and motivation. These days, Mars in your communications sector can animate fun projects, new interests, studies, and strong opinions. Today, you could be dealing with some confusion surrounding your communications, or you may have a hard time shaking a comment or idea from your mind. It’s not easy to know what to believe, or you may feel temporarily uninspired about a recent project or endeavor. It’s possible you feel overwhelmed with what you need to learn or understand at this time. Keep in mind that the lack of a long-term plan can interfere with your presence of mind, or the opposite–if you’re pinning your hopes on something in the distant future, you may be missing current opportunities. Take time to reorient yourself. If you have some doubts, ride them out and then make adjustments if need be.
LeoWith a Mars-Neptune opposition today, dear Leo, there can be some issues with boundaries, borrowing, or lending to manage. Or, facing up to recent excesses may be necessary. Mars is in your resources sector, motivating you to build and develop a business, project, your talents, or your money. As motivated as you can be, you may wrestle with expectations or uncertainty. Guilt or ambiguity can drag you down and lead to wasted opportunities, so do what you can to nip neglect in the bud. If you discover that you don’t have all the resources or support you had anticipated, aim to discipline yourself or tone things down just a little. Be especially vigilant if handling money today. You may be so passionate about moving forward on a project that it’s tempting to borrow from your future now, which may be cause for regret later on. Allowing yourself a healthy escape from the routine can be appropriate and helpful now.
VirgoWith today’s Mars-Neptune opposition, dear Virgo, you could find that you’re suddenly running out of steam, and it likely has to do with uncertainty or a temporary lack of inspiration. Mars in your sign can get you going these days, often to your benefit. Today, you may find it challenging to either get in touch with what you want or to pursue your desires directly. Relying on yourself may be best at the moment! Discerning between fact and fancy can be difficult. Finding a middle ground is the key but can be challenging if the energy you’ve been feeling seems to evaporate and you feel sluggish. Relationships can feel draining, or there is uncertainty to deal with now. Others may not seem as invested as you are, and they can be less than helpful. You may need to let go of the desire for others to be transparent about their intentions, just for the time being. Softening your approach or stepping back a little, especially with a significant someone, may be helpful.
LibraThere can be ambiguous desires and situations today with Mars in opposition to Neptune, dear Libra. You may need to manage uncertainty in your daily affairs, duties, or work. A chaotic or uncertain work or health environment might make it hard to unwind. It can be a time when you’re seeking new dreams or refreshed inspiration. It isn’t easy to be clear about your direction, but it’s essential to get things done even without this clarity. Reaching a firm decision or conclusion is unlikely, and making a big splash likely won’t go over well today. If you find yourself questioning your motivation or enthusiasm for a particular endeavor, consider ways to bring more imagination into a project to revitalize it. Look for new reasons to feel inspired. Aim for moderation today, as errors tend to happen when we go to extremes.
ScorpioYour imagination is powerful, perhaps a little too far temporarily, dear Scorpio, and mixed signals can abound. If you feel overwhelmed by a project, it may be better to take a break–some time away can refresh you, giving you the chance to get in touch with what you truly want and need. Areas of neglect, waste, or overestimation in your life can become more apparent. Handling these things can help boost your confidence and clear your conscience. Be on the alert for overindulgence or a tendency to accumulate too much–these things can leave you feeling behind. Ultimately you’ll feel stronger for learning which dreams work for you and which may be undermining you. You may need a bit of self-discipline now. It is possible that someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes, but it is also likely that you struggle with seeing things clearly, or you end up filling in too many blanks today. Try not to become too invested in fantasies right now as others are not particularly aware of what they want, and mixed signals abound. If a friend does a temporary disappearing act or there’s a lack of clarity in a relationship, it may be better to focus on making yourself happy.
SagittariusMars is at the top of your chart, exciting your ambitions and urging you to go after what you want, dear Sagittarius. While it’s a generally good time to pursue your goals, Mars opposes Neptune today, and there can be a detour. A potential hurdle is waning enthusiasm. Look for sources of inspiration if the usual ones are no longer satisfying. Consider, also, that you may be tired or uncertain and need only a short break before hooking back into a dream. It’s possible that ambiguities surrounding living conditions or home or family can weigh on you and leave you feeling devitalized. As such, it might help to focus on grounding yourself and finding your center. If you need an escape from the routine, look for healthy ways to get away. Improving your domestic life or living arrangements can be a priority, even if it seems you don’t have the time to do so. Getting more acquainted with your needs and wants will help! Seek ways to inject more imagination into your projects or goals.
CapricornYou may battle feelings of restlessness or a need for change that’s hard to direct today, dear Capricorn. A Mars-Neptune opposition can pull up areas of discontent, ultimately clarifying your position. Confusing circumstances could surround certain communications in the meantime, or you may be waiting for an answer and feel in limbo. You may feel a little overwhelmed with a recent project or endeavor that you’ve taken on. Aim to seek healthy escape routes that feed a need for fantasy, adventure, or idealistic thinking. Or, find alternate sources of enjoyment and inspiration temporarily until you regain your momentum. Indeed, it can be challenging to know when to insist on facts or go with faith today, so aim to avoid jumping to speak or decide. While evasiveness can be frustrating, it might be better not to try to pin something down just yet. You may need to deal with some ambiguities or things you’ve previously overlooked before you can press on.
AquariusYou can experience a strong desire to escape, or there can be a real distraction from what you’re doing today, dear Aquarius, due to a Mars-Neptune opposition. Aim to be more vigilant with money and sharing since it’s hard to see things clearly and boundaries can easily be crossed. Take care of your valuables, and consider ways to improve your life and relationships through more imagination, romance, and gentleness. Consider that you’re more sensitive than usual to the moods of people around you–if you’re not aware of this tendency, you can end up taking on emotions that don’t entirely belong to you! As well, it’s best to recognize if you’re sacrificing too much for others. If you’re finding yourself craving everything you don’t have, it might help to partake in grounding, centering activities that boost your appreciation of those things already in your life.
PiscesMore rewarding relationships can be a powerful motivator for self-improvement, dear Pisces. Still, it’s best to be careful not to hook yourself to something unless your heart is truly in it. Aim to get more organized, too, since feeling on top of things helps you out when other areas of your life are up in the air. Mars, currently transiting your partnership sector, opposes Neptune in your sign. Others may not see you correctly, or someone might be trying too hard to elicit a response from you. You could be feeling pressured or pushed into a corner when you’re not sure of what you want. Whether they’re pushy or earnest, your passivity or evasiveness could be frustrating someone. Aim to do what you can to clarify your position, but avoid people-pleasing–aim to find that balance!
