Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’d be wise to make good use of a deliberate pace today, dear Aries. You’re ready to put in some effort towards achieving goals, particularly those related to learning, communicating, and connecting. If you can benefit from some study, this is a great time to do so. Whether you’re catching up or getting ahead of yourself, efforts to learn can be very successful now. You could very well be attracted to a small challenge now. Others are very interested in what you say and may turn to you for sage advice. It’s an excellent time to brush up on your knowledge and develop skills. You are communicating with authority and have a solid sense of your priorities. The chances of gaining powerful new insight into an ongoing problem are strong.
TaurusTransits tend to reward determined effort today, dear Taurus. Mars forms a helpful aspect with Saturn, which is useful for motivating you to pay more attention to practical activities. It’s a good time to work on career or money-making projects or take steps towards a realistic goal. You recognize the importance of strategy and patience. There is intensity in your interactions, generally of the pleasant variety. You are patient with people, ideas, and creations, and this brings rewards. You may look to the past before gaining a new perspective that pushes you forward. There can be good news about a financial matter now, or someone could surprise you with support.
GeminiYou’re interested in tangible results and rewards right now, dear Gemini. There can be a productivity boost with education, sharing, or publishing. You’re earning respect, particularly for what you know or how you share your ideas. Your stamina stands out now as Mars, currently transiting your sign, harmonizes with stable Saturn. Practical decision-making is enhanced, and you’re inclined to think more seriously and deeply. You might benefit from speaking with someone close to you, and research may turn up rewards. There is more persuasiveness to your personality today.
CancerYou’re in particularly good shape to work behind the scenes today, dear Cancer. You have the patience to see something through or work on something that doesn’t have immediate rewards and results. You’re far more interested in putting your efforts into endeavors with the potential to last. Slowly but surely, plans and strategies are developing with Mars and Saturn harmonizing in private sectors of your solar chart. It’s a good time to handle things you might usually avoid or put off. Activities that require determination can thrive. There’s also excellent energy for getting to the bottom of things, and what you’re coming up with now can unfold over the coming week. Deep subjects, previously hidden information, or reconnections can figure strongly.
LeoA Mars-Saturn influence on the day brings on a practical, patient, stabilizing theme, dear Leo. Accepting people, projects, and circumstances as they are, and then working with what you have, is the key to success. Putting energy into a team effort or pet project can be worthwhile, and doing business or productive things with friends can also work out well now. You’re also in good shape to concentrate and focus on those things that truly matter. You may be mulling over something related to money, business, or health and come to some valuable conclusions. Recycling some of your old ideas can be successful. Changing the mind’s focus can facilitate healing.
VirgoTransits today help you put emotions and expectations aside so that you can work towards a particular goal with patience, dear Virgo. You have the patience and determination to tackle jobs and tasks that you typically put off. You can be a workhorse today — responsible and reliable, and ready to take on anything that will get you to a good place. You’re also likely to be valued professionally or publicly, even in small ways, as others recognize your effort. As much as you’d like to charge ahead, this is a day for putting in the necessary groundwork. Reconnecting and communicating can also figure strongly, and information can emerge that changes your point of view. You might begin to understand a problem that once had you stumped.
LibraWith a Mars-Saturn transit influencing the day, dear Libra, your motivation builds, and you recognize that if you take things one step at a time, you can make progress. Your time is best spent putting effort into a sure thing. It’s a good day to work on honing a skill, perfecting a craft, or putting effort into a heartfelt project or venture. This transit favors employing strategy and exercising self-discipline. You might make a creative, educational, or publishing-related advance. You might also benefit from focusing on what you can get rid of that will help simplify your life. Learning something significant about your past can help you move forward. Memories coming to you now can provide new and meaningful clues.
ScorpioYou’re in a good position to enjoy the benefits of a slow-but-steady approach today, dear Scorpio. Some behind-the-scenes work or efforts made in private or solitude can be attractive or necessary. You can make progress on the home front, and if you are working at or on the home, you are more interested in applying yourself to something that will have value over the long term. It’s a fine time to handle matters that help you get more organized and feel more in control of your life. There may be a project going on that is in its development stage that consumes much of your attention. You’re looking to the past for answers, and what you do find can unfold over the coming days and propel you forward. A project idea may gather steam, and memories of past conversations can be rich in meaning now.
SagittariusYou might embrace a slower pace if it means you can be more thorough today, dear Sagittarius. Thinking in terms of security and practicality will bring rewards. You have a stronger sense than usual about which of your ideas and plans have real potential, and it can be relatively easy to become absorbed in a project now. Success today depends on how patient and deliberate you can be. Very productive conversations can happen, particularly with a partner or in one-on-one scenarios. Communicating in real, honest terms can be most effective now. You’re also inclined to look to the past for answers, and you stand to gain important insights into a business matter or long-term goal. You’re arriving at a different and valuable perspective as you open your eyes to something you may have glossed over. There can also be a good, satisfying sense that you’re growing in a relationship.
CapricornYou gravitate toward the most practical solutions to problems and constructive projects or endeavors, dear Capricorn. Getting serious about your finances can be beneficial and in focus, and thinking about long-term purchases, work projects, or investments can figure strongly. It’s generally a good time for assessing things, drawing plans, or doing the groundwork. Today, traditional methods are favored, and so is seniority, both in business and your personal life. It’s also a good time for serious study, research, and attention to detail–you might discover something you missed in the past, giving you valuable insight.
AquariusYou are tempering your energy and displaying patience, and people are taking you seriously today, dear Aquarius. You’re expressing yourself with more authority, power, and credibility today with Mars in harmony with Saturn in your sign. You’re also taking your needs for entertainment, romance, or diversions quite seriously, and you might put effort into plans that help you achieve a goal related to personal fulfillment and pleasure. Not everything works best spontaneously — some things benefit from planning. You might naturally attract the right information, and the focus should be on strategy and plans of action rather than quick maneuvers or instant gratification.
PiscesPractical ventures related to money, home, and family can be promising and worth your time right now, dear Pisces, with a Mars-Saturn trine influencing today. While neither is a particularly easy planet, their collaboration can encourage you to produce and excel. You’re ready to work hard for your future security. Perhaps most importantly, you’re basing your confidence on realism, and the primary goal is to feel on top of things. Instead, taking steps toward getting over a fear or habit can be in focus. It’s a good time to embrace a deliberate pace, seeing its distinct benefits. Responsibilities are more easily met today. At the same time, sharing ideas can be fruitful. You may have to look backward to move ahead, and reconnecting with someone or growing a relationship through more effective communication can be in focus.
