Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesSaturn has just turned direct after retrograde motion since May, dear Aries, and career and reputation matters are set to pick up steam, even if it’s a slow and steady pace. This influence is useful for clarifying your business, career, and life path goals or projects, particularly since Jupiter recently turned direct in the same area of your solar chart. Both bodies are on their last stretch, set to move on in December. This week, there may be a reality check, but you’ll also recognize what’s genuinely doable. You bring more confidence to your work or feel more capable of handling your responsibilities and taking the lead. If a business venture or life path seems to have blocked up in recent months, you are now turning a corner. However, today’s energies feel a little undirected or murky until tonight when the Moon enters your sign. Aim to muse and daydream rather than come to reliable conclusions until then.
TaurusToday’s energies are better for seeking ways to rejuvenate, dear Taurus, and not as ideal for locking something down. Sharing, learning, publishing, exploring, legal matters, or education might need extra attention to rules and structure this week and as we advance. You’re no longer satisfied with waiting things out, and you’re more willing to do the groundwork to move things forward with Saturn now direct in your solar ninth house. It’s a good time to work on bringing expectations down to earth. Reminders that you should be paying attention to the realities of a situation can figure strongly, but don’t let a small reality check discourage you. Self-improvement endeavors can be in focus and successful as you go forward. Slowly but surely, you find new reasons to be optimistic about where you’re heading.
GeminiToday’s Mercury-Neptune challenge can point to a misunderstanding or temporary lack of clarity on a matter, dear Gemini. Adopt a “wait and see” attitude for best results. However, with Saturn now direct, you can expect your intimate world to gain more clarity this week and as we advance. You gain a stronger sense of what you want from your relationships or see some forward progress with taxes, debts, or financial support. There could be the need to buckle down that prompts you to be more attentive or responsible. A commitment comes into stronger focus. Facing reality on a matter can put you in an empowered position. If you’ve procrastinated on settling your finances, you’re now ready to roll up your sleeves and take them on. Both Jupiter and Saturn are now on the final leg of their transit of your solar eighth house, and until mid-December, making positive lifestyle changes is strongly favored.
CancerSaturn is now direct after over four months in retrograde motion, dear Cancer, and you’re clearer about where you stand with others. Clarity about a relationship or your needs from others can empower you this week, and as we advance. Realistic expectations of projects and people lead to a stronger sense of direction and groundedness. There can be a reality to face or a sense of obligation that spurs you into motion. While a commitment or responsibility can hang heavy in the air, you’re more willing to deal with it. You could feel that you’re turning a corner in a relationship. Today’s energies, on the other hand, are not particularly clear. If you expect precision today, you may be disappointed, but it’s a good time to imagine possibilities.
LeoWith Saturn now direct after several months of retrograde motion, dear Leo, you may be getting back on track with a diet or fitness plan, chores, or a work project. These things may have stalled in perhaps frustrating ways in the past while. After a reality check of sorts, you’re inclined to adopt a more straightforward approach to meeting and facing these responsibilities. More clarity comes to work, health, and wellness. Learning where you stand on a matter can be a relief and can also improve planning and decision-making. There is a tinge of seriousness to the week, but the good news is that you can also find a lot of strength in the fact that you now know where you stand. The weeks ahead can be particularly active for organization and self-improvement. More structure is useful, and cutting back on certain activities can be necessary to get back on track. Today, it can be hard to get started along a productive path, but transits can encourage your imagination.
VirgoThere can be a somewhat sober or serious tone to the week, dear Virgo, with Saturn’s recent station. Ultimately, its direct turn is useful for clarifying your feelings, relationships, projects, and ventures. You recognize what’s genuinely doable. Don’t be surprised if you experience strong instincts to narrow in on particular goals and projects, as it’s a good time to cut out the fluff. You could feel inspired to make lifestyle changes or to recommit to a project or relationship. It may be best if you aim to see the benefits of facing reality, rather than nursing feelings of discouragement. Saturn’s direct station is a yearly occurrence, and this is the final time it happens in your sector of romance, creative projects, and hobbies. You’ll be busy firming things up in some of these areas of life in the coming weeks.
LibraWith Saturn now direct, dear Libra, organizing your personal life is in good favor going forward. Facing your responsibilities with realism puts you in a strong position to manage them. Take things gradually and enjoy the process of bringing more order and security to your personal space and inner world. Saturn is now on its last leg of your solar fourth house, and is set to move on in December. Jupiter is in the same boat. Gradual improvements to family life are in store, but you’re also putting in the work to make things happen. Home improvement projects can resume or pick up the pace, and relationships with family may strengthen. You have a real and growing sense that things are getting better. In the months ahead, stellar energy is with you for seeing what needs to improve in your personal life, at home, or within. There may be a reality to face or an obligation to fulfill now or this week, but it pushes things forward. Today, however, aim to take time off from heavy thinking if you can. You could be feeling either tired or inspired, depending on how content you are with not having the answers temporarily.
ScorpioSaturn has just turned direct after over four months of retrograde motion, dear Scorpio, for the final time in your communications sector. This week, there may be a reality check or a strong reminder of your need to organize or take care of your daily affairs. More structure to your communications, studies, and connections to others can benefit you greatly. Procrastination is costly, and as you meet your goals and responsibilities more promptly, you feel more energetic and confident. You’re also in a high position to evaluate which of your interests, studies, and projects are genuinely worth your efforts. Facing reality is ultimately strengthening, even if it’s a little uncomfortable at first. Responsibilities and duties might magnify just for now. Today, however, it’s best to watch for misunderstandings with Mercury in your sign in a minor clash to elusive Neptune.
SagittariusSaturn has just stationed and turned direct, dear Sagittarius, reminding you of the value of simplicity this week. Money matters require more structure and discipline, but they also improve steadily going forward. Focus on firming up your budget, evaluating business projects, and paring down excess so that you can feel more secure and pay extra attention to your practical affairs. Saturn asks you to be responsible and mature about the areas of life it’s affecting. In your case, until December, it’s your finances, resources, and talents. The rewards for doing so can be significant, although they’re often deferred! Putting some uncertainty behind you can lead to better plans moving forward. Today, however, the tendency to miscalculate a few details of a plan is strong. Mixed or missed signals are possible.
CapricornYour planetary ruler, Saturn, has just stationed and turned direct, dear Capricorn, helping to fuel your confidence to face reality and make better decisions. Saturn is on its last stretch transiting your sign, and in December, it will move on, not to return to Capricorn until 2047! You’re in good shape for specific health pursuits to resume or begin. Your determination to move things forward increases now. Responsibilities and problems can undoubtedly magnify in your mind, but this is an empowering shift. In the weeks ahead, there can be a strong focus on getting organized, following the rules, and attention to practical details. Your comfort with facing reality and taking care of your responsibilities improves, leading to better decisions. Today, however, a Mercury-Neptune challenge can leave you feeling mentally tired or inspired, depending on how comfortable you feel about leaving some things up in the air.
AquariusSaturn has just ended its retrograde cycle, dear Aquarius. While this yearly direct turn often comes with a small dose of reality, it leads to a feeling of strength and clarity. It can be a time to face elements of your past that are resurfacing as truths or realities. Knowing your position can lead to making better plans. From now on, you’ll feel more equipped to put negative habits and attitudes behind you. Gradually, you’re bound to feel stronger, more capable, and clearer. If you’ve procrastinated on a matter, it now seems more straightforward to handle it. In December, both Jupiter and Saturn will enter your sign, and it can be a time of new beginnings and further clarity. Until then, important work is ahead as you prepare. You’re clearing the decks, and you begin to do so with a stronger sense of purpose. Even so, minor transits today can point to missed communications or wrong directions. Presentations or meaningful conversations should probably wait.
PiscesYou can be rewardingly busy or connected today, dear Pisces. However, there can be some ambiguities to manage. There may be missing information or situations that aren’t easy to assess because wishful thinking is strongly in play. Aim to take a break from overthinking. Even so, Saturn has just turned direct, and truths coming to light this week help you get a real grip on the reality of friendships or projects, a long-term plan, aspiration, or goal. It’s easier to make better arrangements with a sense of what is viable and what isn’t. You’re able to put procrastinating ways behind you in some regions of your life, and it feels good to do so. You’re in better shape for organizing, moving forward, and meeting responsibilities going forward. It’s important to look for ways to simplify or cut back, even if this is not the easiest choice.
