Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhether to enlist help or go solo on a matter can be a dilemma today, dear Aries. You may recognize where your extracurricular activities are getting in the way of your goals. Your best bet will be to find ways to satisfy both your needs for solidarity and self-reliance rather than feel you have to choose one or the other. A longer-term aspect involving Jupiter and Saturn is exact today, reminding you to keep things moderate. This period favors a go-slow approach. Still, it’s a good time for creative projects and hobbies with the Moon’s stay in your joy sector all day. Whatever you do today, you do it with a personal touch.
TaurusToday’s Jupiter-Saturn semi-square reminds you of the limitations of a particular goal or initiative, dear Taurus. Through obstacles or delays, it also encourages you to keep goals moderate and realistic. Paying attention to details, doing editing work, or simply slowing things down can be in order. Otherwise, it’s a great time to tackle problems from their root. You might apply yourself to a problem and work doggedly for a fix or solution. Family activities are also favored. You seek more calm and comfort. Achieving a better balance in your personal life or domestic world can be a goal now, and it can be empowering all around.
GeminiToday’s energies favor making adjustments over bold moves, dear Gemini. A Jupiter-Saturn influence is in play, encouraging you to keep things real and avoid pushing the limits. There’s no need to test your limits, either. This aspect first formed in July and will occur again in March 2023. A slow and steady pace makes the most sense. With Mercury also retrograde, it’s probably best not to take on brand new initiatives. Still, working cooperatively towards common goals can be in focus and satisfying. You are learning a lot through what’s shared today, and taking the time to comment or express yourself is rewarding.
CancerA Jupiter-Saturn minor challenge reminds you to be realistic this week, dear Cancer, and this transit is exact today. Keep in mind that growth should be steady for it to stick now. Refining current projects, particularly related to your career, money, support system, or work, makes the most sense now. It’s a good time for a “slow but steady” mindset, especially with Mercury also retrograde. With the Moon in your solar second house, you’re focusing on your possessions, money, business, or comfort matters with more emotional investment.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Leo, and you can enjoy a fresh start on an emotional level. You express yourself easily right now, mainly through positive body language and personal warmth. Even so, a Jupiter-Saturn aspect that first showed up in July is exact today, and you may be reconsidering a long-term goal or dealing with something you overlooked to clear the path for moving forward. It’s not the time to give up on a project just because it’s slowing down or taking too long, but to attend to duties that will help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress. Slow and steady wins the race now. Transits now remind you to take things a step at a time for the best results.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in the sign just behind yours, dear Virgo, indicating a need for some emotional refreshment. It’s not the only reason to pull back a little from things: a Jupiter-Saturn semi-square that first came into the picture in July and is now strong again. This transit points to a need to go slowly with a work or health initiative, which will help you get back on track. Checkpoints such as this one are helpful in the long run. As the day advances, you’re in great shape to take care of personal matters. You might find it rewarding to become engrossed in research, a book, movie, or anything that provides a healthy escape.
LibraToday’s Jupiter-Saturn aspect points to the need to pace yourself in areas where you’ve been going too fast or pushing too far, dear Libra, mainly related to relationships and creative projects. This influence came into the picture in July and will return in six months. While the going may be on the slow side this week, you’re in a positive frame of mind. Changes may not yield immediate advantages, but remind yourself that even if it’s slow progress, it’s progress. Cooperating with a team or partner can be especially successful, saving time and bringing pleasure to your life. Happiness goals can be a wonderful focal point.
ScorpioA Jupiter-Saturn transit that first formed in July comes together exactly today for the second of three times, dear Scorpio, bringing with it a reminder of the need to pace yourself. Overdoing even a good thing can spoil matters, which can specifically relate to your home, routines, and working life. It’s an overarching influence this week that suggests a slow but steady approach is best. With the Moon in your solar tenth house, following the rules is probably a better idea than breaking out on a new path just for now. Still, within these bounds, you can accomplish something worth your while.
SagittariusToday’s Jupiter-Saturn influence is strong all week, dear Sagittarius, and it reminds you to pace yourself. It’s a fine time to make progress but not a time to skip ahead. Slow but sure wins the race! It’s better to make edits and refinements instead of pushing forward too eagerly. In some ways, this may even be a comforting thought if you’ve been particularly excited about your current projects but perhaps taking on a little too much. The Moon spends today in your spirit sector, and your enthusiasm may rest on a thought or feeling that inspires you as the day advances. You might encourage somebody with a unique perspective on a matter.
CapricornA Jupiter-Saturn aspect today is a reminder to slow down, dear Capricorn, particularly in the areas of finances, business, and home life. You may be second-guessing your first impression or past choices. Circumstances might remind you that it’s better to edit, refine, and cover all your bases than to push forward too eagerly or take on new projects. As the day advances, you seek activities that keep you engaged and productive. The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, putting you in a contemplative frame of mind. You also notice things you might miss at other times. Observing and learning rather than jumping into action makes more sense.
AquariusSaturn in your sign faces an obstacle today, dear Aquarius, as it forms a minor challenging aspect to Jupiter. This transit reminds you that sometimes you need to slow down and make adjustments to make progress later. It first formed in July and will complete in six months, and pacing yourself is the message. While it could be hard to know which move to make and when, editing and refining current pursuits is probably ideal. It’s a time to pay more attention to details, be prepared, and do your homework. If enthusiasm dampens a little, know that it’s temporary. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, and feedback and your interactions are more important to you.
PiscesWith today’s Jupiter-Saturn transit, dear Pisces, it may be best to conserve your energy, observe, and strategize. There may be a delay to deal with or an apparent backward step with a pursuit, and editing or refining can be in order. Big or bold moves are not in favor temporarily. Editing and refining are appropriate and, in fact, will serve you well. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and you feel emotionally satisfied once you’ve handled your duties. It’s easier than usual to be productive, and a sense of purpose helps motivate you as the day advances. You might even find that managing your practical affairs contributes to a stronger sense of balance and restores or heals you.
