Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may arrive at a new discovery about an old or long-standing matter today, dear Aries, particularly regarding work and health habits. The pleasing elements of your daily routine or work can be in focus! Drawing upon your people skills can help you, even if social factors could hurt productivity levels somewhat. It may not be the best day for getting substantial work done. However, it’s helpful for generating ideas and attending to your daily life’s social and aesthetic elements. Today is also suitable for making sense of your feelings, and perhaps even an old problem as you see things in a new light. You can resolve many issues through brainstorming and analysis. Someone from your past can be on your brain or perhaps re-appearing in your life now. Also today, the Sun opposes Jupiter. Jupiter continues to transit your sign, opening your heart and encouraging you, and today, there can be a turning point. Recent excesses can become especially apparent. There may be some resistance from others that leads you to recognize the need to make a change. You may struggle with some ups and downs with enthusiasm and motivation. However, through this, you can discover new ways of expressing yourself, leading you to make vital adjustments to plans. You’re feeling independent, but it’s best to seek a fuller picture through the eyes of another since a partner can reflect important things about yourself. If you’ve been overdoing striving for independence or freedom, this is a time for reining things in a little. Something must be toned down, and today, you’re likely to recognize what that is.
TaurusToday’s energies are complex, dear Taurus, but they’re useful for figuring things out and coming to a mutually beneficial agreement. While it may not stick forever, it’s probably just what you need at the moment. You might also get to solve a mystery about a relationship that previously bothered you. Talks and thoughts tend to revolve around past romance, projects, and events, or an overdue conversation happens now as retrograde Mercury aligns with Venus. There can be nostalgia about recent good times, exciting feelings, and other happy milestones. The desire for harmony is vital, particularly as it relates to a comfortable understanding of a previously perplexing matter. You want to put something behind you or pull yourself out of a rut, and this applies in particular to romantic, recreational, and creative levels. With the Sun’s transit of your work and health sector, you may be paying more attention to and taking pride in your chores, routines, work, or health and wellness. On the other hand, Jupiter in your privacy sector encourages you to break out of the routine and enjoy more time to yourself. A Sun-Jupiter opposition today points to a turning point moment–if you’ve been overdoing things, it’s time to turn things around. For example, if you’ve been doing so much for others that you don’t have much energy or time for yourself, it’s time to restore balance. You can benefit from drawing limits and establishing boundaries, both with others and yourself. You’ll see the value in making compromises and seeking a better work-life balance.
GeminiWith the Sun opposite Jupiter today, dear Gemini, you may come to a turning point with a romantic relationship, friendship, or creative project. A project or connection might blossom. Instead, you may face a choice between shining on your own or sharing the work and credit. If a conflict ensues between attention to group or friend activities and individual or romantic relationships, the answer may be to seek moderation. As much as you’d like to please everyone, including yourself, there can be the need to tone things down now. After all, you can’t spread yourself out too thin without something taking a hit. However, you could find yourself in a favorable position to satisfy your needs for conversation, learning experiences, and personal contact with Mercury and Venus coming together. Since Mercury is still retrograde, you may want to keep things informal and avoid jumping to conclusions, as some facts can be missing or confusing to see. Do enjoy a new and fresh take on an old matter that’s likely to boost your spirits. Conversations with or about family can be revealing and rewarding. You may be directing a lot of attention to unresolved relationship matters. It’s a time for being fair and nonjudgmental and seeing an issue that perplexed or bothered you more favorably. There can be plenty of nostalgia and perhaps a past opportunity related to family and home that re-emerges.
CancerJupiter encourages you to reach a little further in your career or with goal-setting these days, dear Cancer. You want to grow, improve, and expand. Still, the Sun this month wants you to shine in your personal life and with family or the home. As much as you’d like to “go hard” in both areas, you realize that you won’t do either well if you exhaust yourself. Similarly, if you’ve expected too much from a project, venture, or yourself, you’re now ready to restore some balance. Putting pressure on yourself to reach great heights in a short amount of time will defeat the purpose, which is happiness! Sound energy is with you for making sense of a matter today, however, as Mercury aligns with Venus. It can be about discovering some missing puzzle pieces of a situation. Even though the complete picture is yet to come, it can still be satisfying! Look for opportunities to expand your knowledge and skill set, as an option that was missed or passed over in the past can re-emerge, and it may be worth a closer look. Thoughts and conversations revolve around sorting out past problems, particularly old relationship challenges. You have charm and humor working for you in your communications today, even if the words are not always perfect.
LeoThe Sun and Jupiter oppose one another today, dear Leo, as they do each year, and your attention turns to areas of your life where you’ve been doing too much. This time around, excesses could be with mental pursuits and projects–you want to shine, which may have led you to take on or promise too much. Overextension is possible, and toning things down can be challenging because your desire to excel is so strong. Consider that restoring balance by streamlining will benefit you all around. Juggling too many things can lead to a feeling of burnout. Also today, further information about a long-standing issue might emerge, mixing things up and changing your perspective, particularly related to your finances or practical affairs. There could be a project or financial opportunity that now looks promising. You are inclined to recognize and discuss your needs and desires. There is also a stronger desire to bring more harmony and comfort into your life.
VirgoWith the Sun transiting your solar second house, dear Virgo, there can be a strong urge to prove yourself, go it alone, make your mark, and succeed on your own. Still, with Jupiter in your intimacy sector, merging your resources or talents with others can be very rewarding. With the Sun and Jupiter in opposition today, someone’s involvement or support may seem to clash with recent urges to make your mark or boost your self-worth. You want to excel on your own merits, but you also recognize the need for others or outside resources and talents. It’s time to test the waters and acknowledge the need to make compromises and avoid excess. Today’s Mercury-Venus alignment in your sign can put you in an excellent position to strike up an agreement or get into a fabulous frame of mind. You have more impact than usual, especially with what you communicate. While energies feel rather easygoing, you should be a little more mindful of what you say, as it may not come out as you intend with Mercury still retrograde. Even so, you’re creative and charming, which gets you out of many problems! There can be more attention and focus on you than usual, and you might be the subject of conversation. Today can be a time for attracting people from your past.
LibraToday’s Sun-Jupiter opposition occurs yearly, but this year, it happens when the Sun is in your sign, dear Libra. There can be a battle of egos with a partner, or you could feel someone’s demands on you, finding them excessive. You might be trying to please someone and, at the same time striving for independence, and something has to give. Whether to pursue your interests and stand out independently or partner up can be an issue. In fact, you’re likely to want to do both! Getting to a state of balance can be challenging but rewarding as you stand to learn a lot about yourself and a relationship. If you’re facing opposition to your plans, you may very well learn from the experience. Also today, further information about a private or past topic may surface and give you a refreshing new perspective. Indeed, you may not know the whole story just yet, but it feels good to fill in a few blanks. There is good energy for making sense of the past, feelings, and ideas today. You see things in an all-new way that helps you understand them more. You are more inclined to talk about private matters or think about these things objectively. You may want to watch that you don’t reawaken a topic that truly does belong in the past, but the vibes today are mostly positive. The re-emergence of a person from your history might spark all sorts of memories.
ScorpioThe Sun and Jupiter form their yearly opposition today, dear Scorpio, and this year, this transit reminds you of the need to balance your attention to work and rest. You may feel that you want to do it all, which isn’t feasible, and the signal to tone things down comes around now. With Jupiter in your solar sixth house, you want to shine in your work, routines, and health pursuits. At the same time, there’s a strong pull towards rest and dealing with private matters or emotional needs with the Sun in your solar twelfth house. You want to grow your work, improve your health, and get the rest and time for reflection that you need, but there’s only so much time in a day! Spreading yourself thin will not serve you well in the long run. Look for ways to make adjustments that lead to a healthier, more balanced life. Adjusting your expectations will do you a world of good at this time. Also, new information about old matters can come to light, particularly about long-term projects and friends or through networking. An abandoned project or idea can seem viable again. While this may be true, watch for a tendency to glamorize the past. The same goes if someone from your past reappears. Conversations can be quite lighthearted but there’s a tendency to pay superficial attention to a matter that may deserve a more in-depth approach.
SagittariusThe Sun and Jupiter oppose one another today, dear Sagittarius, and this year, this transit affects your social axis. You might want to watch for a tendency to promise too much or go too far out today. Circumstances alert you to how your life may have become unbalanced due to excesses, particularly in the social or pleasure-seeking arenas. Benefits are coming to you in these areas of life, but if you are going overboard, there’s the chance you’ll pass up opportunities or overextend yourself. Keep your larger goals in mind as you pursue your more pleasurable pursuits. If this transit instead presents a conflict between attention to a friend or group activities and a romantic relationship, individual pursuit, or children, or if you are wondering whether to go something alone or with others, it’s best to consider ways to reach a compromise. You are likely to receive more than the usual amount of attention today, particularly on a professional or public level. Your words have a lot of impact, but remember that the tendency to be misunderstood remains strong with Mercury retrograde. As long as you choose your words carefully, this can be an excellent time to bring peace and harmony to a matter. There may be an opportunity revolving around work or business that re-emerges for a fresh look. Information can surface that prompts you to redefine long-term goals. Complications in your love life are possible, but you may be able to resolve something that was left hanging for some time, and you’re better off for it.
CapricornJupiter’s current transit benefits your personal life, dear Capricorn, but if you’ve been overdoing things, today’s Sun-Jupiter opposition creates a turning point. For example, if you’ve spent too much time absorbed in your personal life, you may now see the need to tone things down so that you can reach out more often. You also want to shine in your professional life, move out of your comfort zone, and take a few risks with the Sun’s current transit of your solar tenth house. It’s not always easy to “go hard” in both areas without something suffering. Aim to cut back on excess or adjust plans if you’ve been overshooting. You’ll enjoy yourself more fully if you manage to moderate and balance your life. Fortunately, good energy is with you for smoothing over differences today. You are presenting yourself and your ideas with charm or gentleness, and it works well for you as Mercury and Venus come together in harmony with your sign. You seem to know how to turn virtually any situation around in a pleasant way. There can be discussions about cooperation in relationships, and also about long-term plans, travel, education, beliefs, expansion, and love of knowledge. Looking at past subjects, relationships, or viewpoints in new ways can be stimulating. You might arrive at new conclusions that help you find resolutions or closure, and you can move forward happier and freer.
AquariusYou have a bigger-than-usual appetite for taking on or developing projects and interests with Jupiter in your solar third house, dear Aquarius. There can be a lot on your plate. The Sun opposes Jupiter today, and a turning point can emerge. Aim to draw some limits, both with others and with yourself. If long-term goals or plans are not moving or growing as well as you had hoped, it’s time to adjust your expectations to better reflect the time and energy you have available to put into them. If you’ve been overdoing information consumption, you’ll recognize the need to pull back now. While it can be tough to manage everything you want to do, your enjoyment levels will suffer if you overextend yourself, and coming to a balance can be most welcome. Your powers of negotiation are good with Mercury and Venus in alignment. However, with Mercury still retrograde, do consider that misunderstandings or inconclusive situations are likely. You’re inclined to do a lot of analyzing, thinking, and talking about a personal or intimate matter, and if jealousies emerge, use the experience as a lesson in self-awareness. There is a strong tendency to consider the consequences of recent choices or missed opportunities, giving you a new perspective on how to go about things in the future. There can be attractive business projects or plans re-emerging from the past, or information comes out about old relationships. Generally speaking, this is a good day for analyzing and making sense of relationships and relationship needs.
PiscesThe Sun opposes Jupiter today, and it’s important to seek balance in areas of your life where you’ve been going too far or too hard, dear Pisces. It can be a little too easy to overdo spending, eating, and even loving right now. You might wrestle with demands on you from others and expectations of yourself. In your relationships, power dynamics or matters of ownership can figure strongly. If you’ve been going over the top, either indulging your interests or giving to others, this is a time when you’re ready to restore balance. You may decide that focusing on your personal goals and values will do much more for your happiness than focusing excessively on outward signs of success or progress. Rein things in as much as possible, as simplifying now seems to be the best solution to problems. If your enthusiasm is dipping, know that it’s likely temporary, and adjustments may be needed to round out your experiences. Today is also a time to make sense of feelings and ideas, reach agreements, or at least get to a place of understanding. Resolutions can be found for long-standing problems in relationships, and negotiations figure strongly. Even so, there is likely to be more to the story. Mercury and Venus come together in your opposing sign and partnership sector, and you may be looking for resolution or closure regarding a past matter. Others are persuasive, conversations are especially impressive, and people are attracted to your agreeable manner. You may see a new side of a person or situation, and someone could see you in a new, more positive light.
