Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA Mars-Saturn minor challenge today encourages work more than play, dear Aries, but it’s not easy to see the end of the road as slowdowns are likely. The trick is to take things one step at a time. Attempts to push something too hard or fast will likely face blockages. Resolve to carry out your plans at a better time. Practical matters are in good shape despite this energy, particularly if you draw upon patience. Still, with Mercury direct and the recent New Moon, you’re getting past a feeling of being emotionally “stuck” on personal concerns. Thinking is less convoluted, and the path to take or decision to make is likely to become more evident as you go along. As the day advances, you magnetize situations or people that/who help you heal, grow, and thrive. It’s also a fine time to express yourself creatively and romantically.
TaurusResponsibilities to others can feel unusually heavy early today, dear Taurus. While you may want to move something forward quickly, a Mars-Saturn minor challenge can seem to block or slow you down. Impatience slows you further, so consider that reviewing, editing, or adjusting attempts make more sense than taking direct and immediate action just for the time being. You may want something you can’t have, or your plans might fall through due to obligations to a friend. Don’t let any of this genuinely get to you. Take notes that can help prevent future problems. As the day advances, being willing to approach emotional matters in unique ways can figure strongly and benefit you. There can be healing happening through quiet or family activities, or even through a bit of solitude.
GeminiCreatively speaking, you’ve been on top of your game recently, dear Gemini, but you may be dealing with some temporary blocks to this flow early today. This may come in the form of a delay, interruption, or block with a minor challenging aspect between Mars and Saturn. Focusing too much on the process of reaching your goals rather than the vision may frustrate you. It’s not the best time for feeling that you’re moving forward. Later today is active for social and romantic feelings. A Venus-Chiron influence comes into influence and is supportive for presenting your ideas or your case! You’re inspiring trust and winning favor now.
CancerYou may need to bypass blocks, challenges, or conflicts to pursue your desires in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. Deciding to wait until a better time altogether may be your better bet! Impatience sets you back right now, and slowing down just enough to get your bearings makes the most sense. Reacting to delays carefully and maturely is your best bet. You may need to alter your plans or goals to keep something going. If you can contain yourself and maintain focus, you’ll solve some problems that help you out for some time to come. As the day advances, you’re prepared to let problems be. There is terrific potential later today as a Venus-Chiron trine comes into play and works its magic. This aspect encourages an open, kind, and fair approach to one another. It’s particularly suitable for you on business and financial fronts.
LeoA Mars-Saturn aspect influencing the first half of the day can serve to frustrate you, dear Leo, particularly if you’re trying to rush something that requires concentration. Challenges in a relationship can present themselves and can involve a current relationship or a past one that has your brain hopping. Examine the emotions surfacing now more carefully, as they likely have to do with something you’ve buried or swept under the rug recently. If you frequently find that a person in your life doesn’t budge or compromise enough, aim to work things out when you have the patience and time. As the day advances, you’re ready to let things go. A Venus-Chiron aspect comes into play and encourages you to open your heart and connect with your true feelings on a matter.
VirgoIn the first half of the day, dear Virgo, work needs doing, and you may be facing rules, technical problems, or interruptions and blocks that throw a wrench in your plans. A partner may not be very compromising, either. There are better times for pushing forward with plans with Mars in a minor but hard aspect to Saturn. There could be unspoken desires or a sense that you want something but can’t grasp what it is. Try not to allow distractions such as these to interfere with your goals. Spending more time perfecting your endeavors will ultimately work in your favor. These challenging energies ease as the day advances. Dwelling on problems seems more like a waste of your precious energy and time. A Venus-Chiron aspect comes into play, and it can produce an opportunity to revitalize a relationship or reconnect with your inner world. You may gain a greater understanding of a private matter or relationship.
LibraEarly today, a Mars-Saturn minor challenge can slow you down, dear Libra. Someone may feel you’re coming on too strong or that you’re too impatient or brusque. Mind you, people are taking themselves a little too seriously right now! The more you push, the stronger their resistance, so it makes sense to back off and be detached or aloof if you can manage it. Obligations now can make you feel less than independent. Aim to draw on patience. As the day advances, you’ll find it easier to live and let live. You’re in great shape for dedication to something important to you and enjoying good connections. You can learn a lot about yourself and your needs through others with an open heart now.
ScorpioYou have good energy with you for connecting, dear Scorpio, especially in the second half of the day, but early-day can be a little more complicated. A Mars-Saturn minor challenge suggests a block or obstacle. It’s not an ideal time to further your goals quickly or for spontaneity and warmth in your exchanges. There can be a sense that someone’s limiting you or standing in the way of your progress, and this can be frustrating. However, with a little patience, this can be a good time to wait things out and put in extra effort to get things right before pushing ahead with plans. Tensions ease considerably as the day advances. Transits encourage a humble, growth-oriented approach to your relationships. Others seem to recognize your value more than usual, particularly in your work.
SagittariusA Mars-Saturn minor challenging aspect active in the first half of the day can help you slow down, dear Sagittarius, which can be beneficial. However, it might throw a delay or block in your way in the process, which can be frustrating. This transit can make it hard to work quickly towards a goal, or it can lead to misunderstandings with others. Consider that slowdowns may be a chance to catch your breath and refine your goals. This is preferable to wasting your energy focusing on problems instead of solutions. The Moon continues to transit your sign, ensuring you pay more attention to your needs and wants. Taking care of finances comes naturally later today, however, when the Moon heads into your resources sector. You also gain a new perspective on people in your life and on personal projects.
CapricornEarly today, a Mars-Saturn minor challenging aspect can produce some blocks, dear Capricorn. Even if you want to make some waves or take action, you may not get very far! You could discover that what you had planned is no longer feasible, but any delay occurring now is probably temporary. Try your best not to push yourself, projects, or others now, resolving to fix problem areas or work on things that need a little extra attention. The day’s pressures tend to ease as the day advances, although it may very well be that you care far less about them. Some form of retreat can be beneficial with the Moon nearing the end of its cycle in your solar chart. Reviewing recent events is particularly useful. When the Moon enters your sign later today, you’ll be far less likely to be counting the minutes or problems! As well, a Venus-Chiron comes into play, and it’s a very gracious transit. You’re ready to harmonize.
AquariusIt’s better to take things easy early today, dear Aquarius, as a Mars-Saturn challenge can make everything seem relatively slow, particularly those things you’re not thrilled about doing in the first place. It’s not an ideal time for interpersonal relations, and trying to push your case is likely only to make matters worse. You may feel that others are not supporting you or your plans, but this is temporary. You may also feel a bit off-center and unyielding as a result. Do what you can to keep a positive frame of mind and ride things out. With patience and concentration, you’ll do well now, even if you’re not likely to charge full speed ahead. You may choose to avoid venturing too far from home or from your routine or usual methods, and this makes sense since it helps you center yourself. But later today, it’s far easier to let things be. Transits are good for connections and attachments, and relationships improve with a spirit of openness and willingness to be wrong or a little vulnerable.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, there may be a hurdle to clear, likely due to slowdowns or delays, dear Pisces. As well, there can be some feelings of restriction or stubbornness. You tend to be more sensitive than usual to the emotional atmosphere around you, or you could see the less flattering side of your relationships. However, with patience and further thought, these things can give you more time to finish something that needs your undivided attention. However big your plans and ideas are at the moment, avoid being in a huge rush to put them into action until you feel fully confident about them. A bit of hesitation can help you find yourself. Later today, transits help you loosen up, and they also support openness in your interactions. The need for a sense of belonging to something greater than yourself emerges.
