Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesExcellent energy is with you for learning, communicating, and connecting, dear Aries. You can feel pleasantly motivated by a relationship or particular person in your life who might be encouraging your mind, education, or ideas. You are taking care of unfinished business now that will help move things forward. As the day advances, mental intensity increases. You might think more deeply about a matter, trying to make sense of an issue, but you might quickly becoming obsessed with an idea track. You might aim to use this passion positively by channeling it into an important project. Otherwise, there can be tension as people are taking things more personally or seriously than usual. Complex relationship issues or disagreements could seem more challenging now with this frame of mind. It may reach a point where you realize that a particular preoccupation isn’t serving you well. While the extra attention you’ve been giving other people in your life these days is positive and beneficial, if you overdo it, you will fail to recognize your own needs and desires fully. Blurred boundaries might impact your relationships negatively.
TaurusIt’s a great time to consider letting go of unnecessary attachments, dear Taurus. For example, you might want to seek ways to pay off debts or recover loans. Look for opportunities to settle accounts. You have a strong desire to know that your future is secure and that achieving your goals will satisfy you in the long run. However, mental tension is likely as the day advances with Mercury and Pluto approaching a square. Little things can trigger buried, accumulated anger or sensitive points. If you harness the energy well, you may be able to find solutions to ongoing problems. To do so, it makes sense to avoid obsessive thinking as much as possible, leaving you more in sync with your intuition. Try not to go too far with analyses, which can lead you astray. Emotionally-driven decisions made today may be regrettable later.
GeminiThis can be a good time for pouring your energy into a project, pastime, or learning endeavor, dear Gemini. You’re enthusiastic and ready to take action or make connections that enhance your life. You’re craving a genuine feeling that you’re moving forward and growing. Interplays with others can be a tad competitive later today, but you might aim to make the most of this energy. The desire for control over a situation can arise if you’re feeling vulnerable. Personal power comes from managing your own resources, responses, and modes of thinking constructively, not from attempts to control situations or others. However, it’s harder to see this today with Mercury heading into conflict with Pluto. You may be communicating intensity with your words, perhaps without even realizing it, and others’ responses may be undesirable or surprising. You might resolve to avoid harsh words or suspicion to protect your important relationships now. It can be helpful to imagine worst-case scenarios sometimes, but this may go too far right now.
CancerInfluences early today are healthy and invigorating for friendships and personal interests, dear Cancer. They’re also good for pursuing a cause that’s close to your heart. You’re able to reflect on patterns and connections in your life, and relationships develop for the better as a result. Consider whether you’re holding onto something that no longer serves you well, especially an idea or attitude. Your attention can turn to tricky power dynamics in a relationship as the day advances. There can be some tendency to think in extremes, which doesn’t serve you well unless it prompts you to improve or strengthen weak areas of your life. Try not to make decisions based only on the day’s perceptions, as they could also be on the extreme side as the day advances. Trust is difficult when Pluto is active and challenging, and you may get a sense that someone’s withholding or hiding something from you. It could be due to fears, or there could be some truth to the feeling, but either way, it’s better to wait to come to conclusions until you’re less emotionally invested and more objective.
LeoYou’re up to a challenge and determined to make things right with money or your work today, dear Leo. This is an excellent time to ask for what you want and deserve or pursue a goal doggedly. You can feel a little competitive with business, in a good way. There may be an unexpected source of income coming into your life now or a new way to make use of a resource you already have. As the day advances, a Mercury-Pluto square comes into influence, and it may be best to avoid pushing an idea or pushing for an answer from someone. As well, avoid succumbing to pressures to get too much done in a short time. This transit can produce a bit of paranoia or play on worries and fears, but you might try channeling this intensity into something beneficial or productive. You may discover something that is need of a rehaul.
VirgoYou’re inclined to seek alternative methods to the usual way of doing things right now, dear Virgo, which can be satisfying. Using your talents can reap the rewards, but you also tend to challenge yourself in a small way. As the day advances and we get closer to a Mercury-Pluto square, there is a tendency to dwell on problems or flaws. It’s best to watch for extremes with money and relationships in your thoughts or conversations. People can seem to drain you, whether materially or emotionally, and boundary issues can now be a hot topic. You may be feeling undervalued, but do your best to avoid defeatist attitudes. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot by attempting to manipulate people or circumstances, as it’s best to work on gaining power through self-control. Nevertheless, you stand to learn a lot about your feelings and fears, even if they emerge in disruptive ways. Try to apply the rule of moderation in your life, not only for your activities but also with your thinking.
LibraYou can be in a fabulous position for virtually any kind of competition, game, learning endeavor, or creative pursuit, dear Libra. People gravitate to you, and you’re ready to take the lead if need be. There is some tendency to magnify problem areas later today, with Mercury and Pluto heading toward a clashing aspect. If you can’t seem to shake a line of thought that’s interfering with your day, do what you can to relax your mind. Or, if you turn your attention to a vulnerable area of your life that is within your capabilities of managing, you’ll be doing yourself a favor. Inflexible thinking can be a problem now, whether it’s your own or dealing with this in someone else. You may need to tread lightly in conversations. It’s time to acknowledge the need to make changes instead of holding on too tightly to things no longer working in your favor.
ScorpioYou could feel quite determined to put something behind you or clear the decks for new beginnings, dear Scorpio. An intimate connection can be stimulating, or an absorbing project is in focus. Projects may begin to prosper today, or you may be clearing a hurdle, brightening your mood. You can feel as if you’re on a personal mission! Later today, Mercury heads into a square aspect with Pluto, which can stir up controversy. However, it’s best not to jump to conclusions, as thoughts and perceptions can be a little extreme right now. Overthinking things is unlikely to lead you to a good place. Instead, you may end up losing some objectivity. Expressing suspicion isn’t likely to remedy a situation in which a trust problem already exists. Jumping to communicate may not be the wisest choice under these conditions, making it best to observe and adopt a wait-and-see attitude.
SagittariusYou can feel energized, motivated, and spirited about your ideas, interests, and relationships, dear Sagittarius. You want to enjoy the feeling that you’re growing, moving forward, improving, and getting involved. Strong energy for releasing yourself from something from the past is with you. With Mercury and Pluto heading toward a square, there’s a general tendency later today to push to get to the bottom of a matter or uncover a truth before considering that we may not be ready for it. It’s better not to jump to a quick conclusion about a friend with this influence that leads to thinking in extremes. Something expressed or remembered can seem to trigger fears now, and it’s best managed by controlling reactions. With people clinging too tightly to their viewpoints, interactions can be too intense or unhealthy. Working on relaxing your mind instead of getting all wound up over matters can be therapeutic, especially since dwelling on mistakes will not erase them.
CapricornYou’re in a motivated, stimulating period for taking care of business, dear Capricorn. You can feel pleasantly competitive or primarily focused on attaining some level of freedom or a spirit of forward movement now related to your work, daily life, health, and money matters. As the day advances, there can be competitive and tense energy. Extremes of thinking are possible with Mercury and Pluto heading toward a square, and worries about reputation or career matters could be overblown. Instead of acting out or overcompensating, seek ways to improve areas where you feel vulnerable. Dwelling on problems will only serve you well if you channel your mental intensity into a task that benefits you; otherwise, you’re just doing yourself damage. Choose your words carefully since Mercury is in a rather public and visible area in your chart, and Pluto is in your sign. A sense that you have no time to work through a problem is likely exaggerated. Working on self-control when you fear things around you are beyond your control is your best bet.
AquariusToday is good for progressing a hobby, pet project, creative work, or even a romance, dear Aquarius. A strong attraction or interest is possible. You feel motivated to take things to a new level, although this is less about commitment as it is about passion and desire to grow. Pouring more energy and heart into your work and projects comes naturally and brings rewards now. While strategic thinking can benefit you, overthinking will likely lead you astray later today as Mercury and Pluto head toward a square aspect. Be as moderate in your thinking as possible, as taking things too far is where we’re most likely to trip up with this aspect. Try not to be misguided by fear and consider ways to simplify your life, particularly on a mental plane, by cutting out those things that leave you feeling overwhelmed. Instead, work on problems one at a time rather than succumb to pressure to do it all. Watch for the fine line between healthy skepticism and suspicion. Ideally, obstacles ultimately bring you to a stronger state of knowledge or conviction.
PiscesConnecting with family or a loved one can be rewarding early today, dear Pisces. You also find it easy to throw yourself into an endeavor that consumes your attention. You’re feeling passionate and want to get involved. With Mercury and Pluto heading into a square, there could be some mental tension or a battle of wills later today. People can be a little too close to their opinions or determined to be correct, making healthy exchanges difficult. Instead, you might feel rising tension surrounding a predicament or problem, or you could have a hard time putting something out of your mind. It may be best to channel excess mental energy into something worth your time. Try not to make big decisions based only on what you’re hearing or what’s communicated today. If you find yourself unable to move past an issue, taking a break may be best.
