Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou find it easier to fill in the blanks early today, dear Aries, and benefit from sorting out your thoughts and plans. Drawing up and talking about plans for work, long-term goals, your environment, and health can be beneficial. You’re moving toward a stronger sense that you’re in control of your life in fundamental ways. The day’s energies shift as the day advances, and a Venus-Mars transit comes into play. This aspect often serves to highlight areas of dissatisfaction or disagreement. Since impulsive Mars is currently in your sign, it can affect you more than others, and others might be pushing your buttons. Instead, if you’re feeling a little on edge or unsatisfied, the temptation to rile others up can come on. Aim to detach yourself just enough to stay in a calm place and work things out. However, pay attention to what’s emerging from within since you may revisit unresolved problems later.
TaurusYou’re in good shape for tuning out distractions and working on a priority early today, dear Taurus. You might choose to sort out critical areas of your life, or there can be clarity or confirmation of a matter. The day’s not as focused as it advances and we head toward a Venus-Mars square. This transit can stir up some frustrations. We’re not on the same wavelengths, making it tricky to interact in healthy ways. You may want to wait out making important decisions if possible since it’s hard to be objective right now. These temperamental conditions can seem random, but they could push problems that have already been brewing to the surface, bringing issues to light. Quicker resolutions become possible. Consider that sudden desires may mask the real root of a problem today, and aim to look deeper.
GeminiEarly today is excellent for finding ways to improve your family and home life, dear Gemini. You might instead boost your relationship with yourself and your inner world. Conversations with or about loved ones can be constructive, and researching the information you need can be useful. Clarity or confirmation can come to your personal or private life. Later today, however, a Venus-Mars square can raise tensions. You might feel pressure to do something different or seek out something new, but without a clear direction, you can feel restless. Clashes are possible if impatience takes over. Although challenging, it’s better to get in touch with your true desires so that restlessness doesn’t lead you astray. Desires that come on suddenly and insistently are more likely to arise from boredom than true need or want under this influence. It stirs up dissatisfaction with current conditions, which could lead to a creative solution. Avoid making too-quick decisions and choices if possible.
CancerEarly today, you might see a situation more clearly, dear Cancer, which comes as a relief. Making plans and dealing with details are favored. You might set the record straight or give/receive useful advice. Someone might clarify a matter for you. As the day advances, a Venus-Mars square comes into influence, bringing some impatient, brusque, or demanding energy to the day. Touchy situations and people can be difficult to navigate. Try not to burn yourself out by pushing too hard or expecting instant results from your efforts. Aim not to talk ahead of yourself or jump into action too quickly based solely on momentary feelings and impulses. Rising above conflicts is possible with some patience. Remind yourself that desires coming on suddenly today may not be a true reflection of what you want or need. Avoid impulsive or dramatic moves that won’t serve you well in the long term.
LeoA grounded, reasonable approach to your life may be best early today, dear Leo. News might clarify a previously uncertain situation, or you could draw plans to improve your life. You’re willing to put in the effort for something that has longer-term benefits. You have foresight now. As the day advances, impatience can set in as Venus and Mars head toward a square aspect. You could easily become frustrated with others regarding an idea or belief, especially if they seem to be shooting you down or not catching on to what you intend to say. People may not be patient enough to listen to one another. Taking personal offense at intellectual disagreements can be an issue. You may want to escape but can’t settle on how to do so. A tense atmosphere can make it difficult to look past small problems and challenges.
VirgoEarly today is good for sorting out your thoughts, dear Virgo. Verbalizing plans, even if only in a list for your eyes only, can be very useful. You may find that you’re a better judge of an idea if you see it spelled out in front of you. You see the practical details and might gain clarity on a matter. You crave a little more organization, structure, direction, and purpose. Later today, a Venus-Mars square aspect comes into influence and can stir up dissatisfaction. A situation can leave you feeling unappreciated or put upon, and you might end up offended. Feelings are complicated, and whether you want to keep things light or go deep can be hard to know. There can be competitive energy at play in your relationships.
LibraEarly today, information might arrive that clarifies a matter for you, dear Libra, and you feel more organized or “in the know.” It’s a time to refresh and reclaim personal energy. However, as the day progresses, a Venus-Mars influence comes into play, stirring up discontent or a disagreement. Ideally, unrest motivates you to make improvements. Reactions can be quick, and people may be working on a short fuse. While there can be a temperamental or competitive tone to the day, you’re gaining deeper insight into your work, goals, or ambitions through a bit of trial and error. As much as you may want to take action, listening and observing are more likely to serve you well.
ScorpioInfluences early today ask you to pay attention to what’s most realistic, dear Scorpio. The motivation to improve your life can come through news, information, or someone’s encouragement. You might opt to put your ideas in writing, make a list, or put something into order to clear your mind. As the day progresses, you can feel far less determined or organized. A Venus-Mars square is on the horizon, stirring up areas of dissatisfaction. Venus is currently transiting your adventure and spirit sector, inspiring your interest in non-routine experiences and an enlightened view of your life. On the other hand, Mars is transiting your work sector and encouraging you to get the job done or attend to your duties. You can manage both, but integrating these things can seem especially challenging today. Be protective of information or feelings that you typically want to keep quiet, as there is an impulsive tendency that could be cause for later regret. Even so, frictions today can lead to new insights and a better understanding of yourself and others.
SagittariusEnergies early today are strong for grounding you, dear Sagittarius. You get a good sense of what’s viable. Conditions are favorable for sorting out your affairs. Ordering your thoughts in some manner can help you restore yourself and clarify your vision. As the day advances, Venus heads into challenging aspect with Mars, which can serve to pull up some discontent or unrest. While it can certainly be informative, it can also be frustrating! Sudden desires and urges deserve a second look, as they’re unlikely to address genuine needs. People are impulsive and more disagreeable right now. Tricky areas tend to involve the sharing of money or responsibilities. While frustrations may have been building for some time, impatience to handle matters can overcome you today. Aim to entertain new ideas and perspectives but wait until today’s tensions subside before drawing firm conclusions.
CapricornEarly today, you’re in good shape to focus on the practical side of things, dear Capricorn. You’re focusing on what’s realistic and doable, and this is something you not only enjoy, but you’re also skilled at these things. As the day progresses, areas of discontent seem more obvious. Venus and Mars are heading toward a challenging square aspect, stirring up contradictory feelings and desires. The Moon transits your communications sector much of the day and tends to keep you busy with many different tasks. There can be some tensions, unrest, and perhaps emotional fireworks, particularly in family relationships and partnerships. You may be dealing with impatience or what seems to be bad timing in your interactions. Save important ideas or topics for an easier, more flowing time if you can.
AquariusYou may enjoy bringing form to an idea or sorting out your thoughts early today, dear Aquarius. You have a strong sense of what’s workable and doable. It’s a generally favorable time for investigating or researching a matter. Getting some peace of mind can be invigorating. Tensions tend to rise as the day advances. The desire for more attention to your personal interests is strong, but you also want to take care of business. It can be difficult to be productive without succumbing to distractions, and there can be a tendency to take things very personally. Interactions can be loaded. Somebody may be using a rough or insensitive approach, or on the opposite end, an approach that isn’t straightforward enough, and a disconnect ensues. Differences ideally lead to new insights and fine-tuning that improves matters. For now, there can be some unrest. Boredom may even lead to a conflict or clash. Aim to observe rather than jump into action.
PiscesThe Moon spends some of the day in your sign, dear Pisces, and then moves onto your resources sector. While this move often evens out your mood, a Venus-Mars aspect can stir up dissatisfaction. Early today, transits are good for clarifying a matter, which puts you in a powerful position. Common sense seems to rule, and problems feel manageable. A conversation with someone can be a source of comfort, security, or good advice. As the day advances, feelings can run hot and cold, and timing can be quite off on a social level. Boundaries might be pushed, and possessiveness or competitiveness can be themes. It’s best not to mix emotions and practical matters right now. It may be a good strategy to aim to give others the benefit of the doubt and to avoid jumping into or out of something too quickly. You may want to keep an eye on spending since impatient Mars is under strain and is currently transiting your money sector.
