Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun moves into opposition with your sign today, dear Aries, for a visit until October 23rd. During this cycle, you’re coming to a more balanced state of being and a larger perspective of what you need and want from your life. There can be a stronger focus on companionship or partnerships, and you can undoubtedly benefit from the insights of a significant other. Some of your plans may need refinement, or you may put a little less energy into them as you attend to other areas of life, particularly social ones. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury coming together in this same sector of your chart, there can be the very beginnings of new thinking about a relationship or your relationship needs. You benefit from the ability to see the dysfunctional elements of the past, and today’s insight can nudge you along a different path. A partner can have much to contribute now, or you might make significant mental discoveries through a one-on-one conversation.
TaurusThe Sun heads into your work and routine sector today, dear Taurus, kickstarting a month-long cycle that’s excellent for getting on top of your daily affairs. You’re more invested in your daily affairs, work, and health, making it a fine time to improve these things. New beginnings along these lines are likely, and even more so after the New Moon occurs in this sector of your solar chart on the 25th. New health and wellness routines can be in focus, and special attention to the details of your life can help you get things in better order. Today, with the Sun and retrograde Mercury heading toward alignment, you’re beginning to see old routines, work projects, and ventures in a brand new light. While it’s still not an ideal time for new launches, it can be a turning point regarding thinking on these matters, putting you on the path towards increased clarity.
GeminiThe Sun moves into your sector of joy and creativity today, dear Gemini, and will transit this area of your solar chart until October 23rd. If you’ve been working too hard or overthinking, this is a time for finding ways to let go of stress and to add more playful or creative activities to your life. Making time for recreation is important now, although it may very well come to you naturally. This smooth and supportive cycle encourages a more self-expressive, free-spirited approach to your life. Creative projects might be renewed or refreshed. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury heading into alignment in this same sector of your chart, you’re in a great position to see a past matter related to hobbies, creativity, romance, or children in a brand new way. The information, conversations, or connections you make now can be integral to redirecting you along a new and improved path.
CancerThe Sun moves into your solar fourth house today, launching a month-long cycle emphasizing reconnecting with your roots, dear Cancer. It’s a time not only to seek more familiarity, safety, and comfort but also to honor your needs for these things. Domestic matters assume more importance now and until October 23rd, and engaging in confidence-building activities can be most beneficial. Through thoughts, new information, conversations, or meetings today, you may gain further insight into past matters, particularly related to childhood or family and home life. These can ultimately lead to new ideas and directions that are significant for you. While thinking is fresh and perhaps a little raw now, it’s a good idea to take note of what emerges today, as you may reach a significant turning point in your thinking processes.
LeoThe Sun heads into your communications sector today, dear Leo, jumpstarting a cycle of more curiosity, learning, and mental activity that lasts until October 23rd. Mercury is still retrograde (until October 2nd), complicating some of this cycle’s themes–the impetus is to reach out and communicate more than usual, but there can be obstacles in your way. You’ll probably feel freer with this after October 2nd. However, this cycle is generally excellent for trying new ideas, learning new things, developing current studies and interests, and reaching out to others to keep in touch. Today, the Sun and retrograde Mercury are moving into alignment, and there can be new light on recent decisions or communications. It can be a time to rediscover an old interest or to see that a current project, venture, or personal interest is no longer serving you well. Ideas can spark a long-term project, but it’s all very new and not yet mature, so pay attention and take your time with decisions.
VirgoThe Sun leaves your sign and enters your resources sector today, dear Virgo. This transit, lasting until October 23rd, brings your attention to your practical affairs, money matters, and building or developing your projects and resources. A slow and steady approach is appropriate now. With retrograde Mercury heading into alignment with the Sun, you’re intuiting new ideas regarding your finances. Further information about a past matter, or new thinking on an old problem, can emerge today, particularly about money, things, and business. It can be the start of a new direction that may not yet be clear but could be quite significant. Take notes! Recycling old ideas may be beneficial, or you may gradually recognize which projects are no longer worth your time. Finding lost valuables or money may be in focus.
LibraThe Sun heads into your sign today, dear Libra, and will visit until October 23rd. This can be a time of revitalization, and it’s set to increase further after the New Moon on the 25th. This cycle emphasizes your personal image, manner, appearance, plans, and needs. You’re noticeable, proud, and more confident or coming across with more strength. As the start of a new solar year for you, it’s best to begin fresh with a good attitude. Retrograde Mercury is heading into alignment with the Sun today, making it a significant time to see recent decisions or plans in a new light. Mercury will retreat into your privacy sector tomorrow, and more rumination is likely. Looking at past projects with fresh eyes can figure strongly now. Remember that your words have more impact than usual today, but Mercury is still retrograde, so it’s important to watch what you communicate.
ScorpioThe Sun heads into your solar twelfth house today, dear Scorpio, for a month-long stay. It’s the time of the solar year for increased focus on rest, processing, detoxing, and putting excess or outdated projects and situations behind you. Until October 23rd, you could be dealing with loose ends and tidying up on an emotional level. You pay more attention to physical and emotional replenishment. It’s not the best time to push yourself or your plans. Today, you may see an old problem or project in a new light or reach a turning point after reconsidering various directions or ventures. There can be a significant “aha!” moment now that changes your attitude or approach.
SagittariusThe Sun begins its transit of your social sector today, dear Sagittarius, and will continue to visit until October 23rd. You focus on new beginnings, projects, and ideas, and you can feel quite hopeful about where your life may be heading. It might also be a time for experimenting with new ideas and plans or dreaming up new visions of where you’d like to go with your life in a general sense. There can be an increased focus on social activities, teamwork, friendships, group connections, and the community. Today, conversations, meetings, contacts, or thoughts can lead you to new discoveries about past matters. You might gain insight into recent events, decisions, or problems, particularly related to friends and relationships or a significant project or pursuit in your life. Ultimately, this can redirect you, leading to significant new beginnings.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your career and reputation sector today, kicking off a month-long transit encouraging you to reach new heights, dear Capricorn. You’ll be in the position to take charge or take the lead in the weeks ahead. It’s one of the most goal-oriented times of the year, and it can also be one of the more public ones–people take notice of you, and you can be more accountable than usual. Your performance and accomplishments can be in high focus. Today, you can gain unique insight into a career, performance, or reputation matter, particularly related to recent decisions and choices. Conversations, thoughts, information, and connections can be significant, leading to new beginnings. While decisions should probably wait since thinking is brand new and fresh, you can use this period to better understand your projects, goals, and needs.
AquariusWith the Sun’s move into your solar ninth house today, dear Aquarius, you’re entering a cycle that encourages your attention to your spirit.

PiscesThe Sun heads your solar eighth house today and will visit until October 23rd, dear Pisces. In the month ahead, there can be a stronger focus on emotional or material support in your life, power dynamics in close relationships, and personal development within. You could experience a desire for deeper connections to people or projects. It can be a wonderful time to explore a particular topic of interest in more depth or develop a special relationship. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury heading into alignment, you might come to new thinking on financial matters, recent decisions, or intimate relationships through conversations, chance meetings, or incoming information that changes your perspective today. This can be about moving along a new path or putting a mental focus behind you, particularly if you’ve been dwelling on a past relationship or problem that drained your energy or kept you stuck in the past.
