Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour ruler, Mars, opposes Chiron today, dear Aries, and you could find that a partner or significant person in your life is argumentative or contrary. Consider that someone could be intimidated or feel threatened about some of the changes you’ve made and is worried they’re losing you (or the old you). Even so, disagreements now can lead to a good plan of action later, so don’t completely hide from them. With a Sun-Saturn transit also active today, there can be some matters to clear up from your past or in your mind. But while it can be tempting to use a quick-fix approach, escaping things will keep you in a rut, and problems may multiply going forward. On the other hand, it’s essential to take a good look at what you can reasonably do. It is even more crucial to recognize the things you can’t do in one day and put them out of your mind for now.
TaurusToday is not ideal for confident decision-making, dear Taurus. You may reach an apparent stumbling block, likely in the form of regret or guilt about the past that’s interfering with the present. It’s temporary and probably quite helpful when you really scrutinize it, even if it seems counterproductive. You can learn much about what may be holding you back from pursuing your goals. Recognize your uncertainty rather than react randomly. As well, focus on doing your best instead of allowing a temporary lack of direction to interfere with productivity today. You may need to streamline or restructure a plan to make it work. Or, today’s Sun-Saturn aspect can leave you feeling a bit out of sync with a friend, goal, or dream. Worrying about a social matter might interfere with your work and concentration. If you need to cut back on a project, remember that it’s about making improvements.
GeminiInsecurities or trigger points can be an issue today, dear Gemini, particularly with friends and lovers. There may be disagreements about crossing a line or concerns about whether you should pursue a particular path. Second-guessing yourself is okay for now, as it helps you see areas of your life that could use a little extra attention or padding. Decisions made from an insecure place rarely work out for good, so it makes sense to wait things out and reserve judgment. Responsibilities or fears of what the future might bring can cut into your sense of joy now if you leave them hanging there. However, if you quantify and acknowledge these things, they won’t feel as weighty. Another strategy is to take the first steps to resolve a minor problem that helps alleviate your concerns.
CancerWith a Mars-Chiron opposition today, dear Cancer, judgment may be clouded, and it may be best to avoid making big decisions or commitments just for now. You can feel a strong pull towards doing what others expect of you, but you have your heart set on doing your own thing, your own way. It can be challenging to fully embrace either end of the pole, yet also difficult for you to do either halfway. It will be important not to act out due to this inner tension. Develop a game plan rather than reacting impulsively today. With a Sun-Saturn transit also in play, your need for familiarity, comfort, and security can feel at odds with the need to move out of your comfort zone to fill a responsibility. Or, it can be tempting to do something you can’t fully get behind, which is probably not a good idea! However, more positive waves are there if you look for them.
LeoWatch for impatience or lack of confidence that could lead to poor choices today, dear Leo, as Mars opposes Chiron. Having doubts about recent actions or decisions could be a signal to take it easy, reconsider a course of action, or explore your options more thoroughly. Recognizing insecurities is the first step in dealing with them, and the whole process is necessary. You can benefit from taking actions that help you get centered, and tuning out distractions may be the best way to do so. With a Sun-Saturn aspect also in play as the day advances, there may be a minor distraction or dilemma to manage. It’s not entirely straightforward to relax, and it may not be easy to judge when to take something seriously or brush it off. Even if you’re determined to enjoy yourself, concerns or guilt can hang over you now that are difficult to ignore. These worries are with you for a reason, making it best to consider ways to meet your responsibilities that will free your mind. Adjustments you make now can have long-term benefits.
VirgoYou might experience some tension as power games can occur today, dear Virgo, especially with those closest to you. Pressures to get things done can also be intense. Your enthusiasm may meet with disapproval or coolness with today’s Sun-Saturn aspect. Still, it’s a small obstacle in an otherwise excellent period of opportunity. It can also lead to making adjustments that genuinely benefit you down the road. You may recognize the need to deal with specific responsibilities strategically so they don’t creep into your life at all the wrong times. Fortunately, it’s a strong time to learn something meaningful about yourself, a special person, or a project in your life. Obstacles are temporary, and if they slow you down, it could very well be for your benefit.
LibraThis is a generally excellent time for seeing new opportunities or making the most of your situation, dear Libra, with the Sun now transiting your sign. Still, there can be a few concerns to manage with a minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Saturn today. Problems or worries related to health or work can crop up. The Sun and Mars in your sign are encouraging your independence. However, Saturn in your solar sixth house reminds you of what you aren’t achieving or doing. As such, you could be sitting on the fence. While it may not be the time to fully resolve a problem, taking some steps toward that end can be helpful now. With a Mars-Chiron opposition also in play, you may not see a situation clearly, particularly with partnerships. There’s push-pull energy that will eventually lead to a nice balance and a new plan or goal, but that can be difficult in the present. Someone might seem non-committal, disapproving, or uninterested in your ideas. You may be better off acting independently than depending on others just for now.
ScorpioWith the Sun now transiting your privacy sector, dear Scorpio, you need some extra time to yourself away from scrutiny. Today, there can be a minor obstacle as the Sun forms an awkward angle with Saturn. Responsibilities loom. In truth, you may need to handle a few things and make some adjustments based on a reassessment of time and energy, which will benefit you in the long run. Fortunately, clogs and misunderstandings are very temporary. Another aspect in play can undercut your confidence as well, which could lead to poor choices or doubts entering your mind about recent decisions. People in your life may be giving mixed signals, or insecurities can interrupt a good “read” of what’s going on around you. Avoid pushing yourself too hard and aim for more rest, which is crucial now with both the Sun and Mars in your privacy sector.
SagittariusThe Sun is now in your social sector, encouraging you to try new methods and enjoy a lighthearted approach to life, dear Sagittarius, and you’ll have opportunities to do so. However, today may present a minor obstacle as the Sun forms an awkward aspect with Saturn in your home sector, highlighting inner conflicts. Self-doubts may undermine your interactions, or guilt about your responsibilities to a home or family matter can throw a wrench in your plans. Aim to do the necessary maintenance that helps free your mind. With a Mars-Chiron opposition also in play, there can be some difficulty in your social life, either directly or indirectly. It’s also temporary, but you may doubt someone’s intentions, or situations can make you wonder who’s on your side. Consider that whatever is triggered now can lead to greater self-understanding and a stronger feeling of motivation to make improvements.
CapricornIt can be all too easy to set someone off or misread a situation with today’s transits, dear Capricorn, particularly related to family. Be especially vigilant about how you express yourself for best results, as people can be on edge. If you aren’t entirely sure of yourself, this can be especially obvious or exacerbate others’ insecurities! As well, minor issues about your performance or realizations about your responsibilities can emerge or technical problems can temporarily delay a project or plan. You may need to do further homework or handle some details before getting back to it. Slowdowns may ultimately help you, even if they seem like a nuisance now. Frustrations today can be revealing, so aim to pay attention.
AquariusWith today’s transits, insecurities could magnify about something you’re working on or your ability to communicate effectively, dear Aquarius. You may feel torn between wanting to play things safe and go out on a limb, and this restlessness can hide or even disguise your actual wants and needs temporarily. Consider that you may be chasing a desire that isn’t truly what you want. While energy levels could suffer due to indecision, once past a small obstacle today, getting organized and learning are satisfying. There can be some concerns, but this can slow you down enough to consider previously overlooked essential factors. For the best results, aim to allow yourself mistakes or doubts and move on. Consider that the adjustments you make now can be most helpful later.
PiscesA simple difference in values or an issue of boundaries can stir a lot of tension today, dear Pisces, but only if you play along! It’s a time when defensiveness can get in the way of healthy relating, and others seem to know how to push your buttons. However, you stand to learn a lot about what sets you off, and with this higher awareness, you may find the motivation to work on vulnerable areas. There could also be a struggle with a decision today if you’re temporarily unsure about how to proceed, and weighing your options doesn’t necessarily resolve things! However, slight adjustments may be in order, and even if they don’t take care of the problem completely, they do count. Minor issues and hiccups can be good indicators of matters that might eventually get out of hand if you don’t pay them attention now.
