Mars, currently in your sign for an extended stay (and your planetary ruler), ends its retrograde cycle today, dear Aries. You may have felt anxious to get going but held back in recent weeks, but now, energy and motivation levels increase. Recent personal challenges and frustrations will begin to dissipate, and you can more confidently move your plans forward. With Venus moving through your partnership sector, relationships should also improve. Ideally, the past two months of retrograde activity has been useful for redirecting you along better paths. In the coming weeks, you’ll be building your resolve and moving plans and projects forward. You’re clearer about what you desire, and this simplifies many different areas of life! You regain energy and drive, and the rewards for your efforts are more evident and motivating. Note that this doesn’t happen all at once–the transition period may be tricky, so take things slowly for now. Decisions shouldn’t be rushed.
Starting now, you are less inclined to nurse your wounds and hold on to resentments, dear Taurus, with Mars ending its two-month retrograde cycle. Mars continues to move behind the scenes in your privacy sector until January, however, and there’s more inner work to do. Still, it’s now easier to pinpoint what needs extra effort. You continue to benefit from more time to rest and reflect, and it becomes more straightforward to do so. Your desires become clearer. When Mars does re-enter your sign in January, you’ll be raring to go. Take decisions slowly and ease yourself back into action for best results. Distractions aside, today can be quite favorable for finding the right information or resources in your work.
You see new layers to a situation today, dear Gemini. Jupiter and Pluto meet for the third and final time in your solar eighth house today. This transit has been integral for discovering deep-down desires. Your ambition to connect more deeply with a special project or person is strong. Events this year have changed your worldview and perspective, and you now recognize what this means for you. Combining your resources, whether financial or otherwise, with someone or navigating tricky sharing dynamics can be a significant focus. You don’t feel exactly like the same person you were before this transit, and you’ll be pursuing paths that reflect your evolving values. You’re in fine shape for research and investigation and for nurturing your desire to get to the bottom of a matter. The use of strategy comes naturally, and it benefits you to do some planning and thinking things through now. It’s especially important to take your time with things with Mars approaching a station. Doing a bit of probing without taking this too far can elevate a relationship or your understanding of a person. You might instead come to a better understanding of yourself and your deeper needs or motivations.
Activities with clear goals tend to fare well today, dear Cancer, but matters of the heart are not as straightforward. There can be some division due to uncertainty, which can leave you in an ambivalent state on a social level. The desire to do something different or unusual can be healthy, but your heart isn’t all in. You seek more peace and familiarity these days. Try not to stay on the fence for too long. You might find that staying in limbo is more draining than simply making a decision and living with it. There’s no use wasting energy worrying about the little things. For the big stuff, however, it’s best to wait things out. The Moon heads into your sector of home and family partway through the day, helping to tip the scales toward settling things down.
The Moon aligns with retrograde Mercury in your sector of home and family, dear Leo, and it’s a strong time for calling up important memories and enjoying some reminisce. It’s a good “ideas” day, particularly about your personal life and long-term plans to boost your security or family feelings. There can be pleasant conversations that soothe and help you center yourself. Still, we’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, reminding you of a constraint or reality and testing whether current plans or endeavors are strong. Responsibilities or problems can seem a little more burdensome now, but it’s a good idea to view any apparent setbacks as opportunities to make changes before moving forward. Through them, you may discover things you’ve overlooked. If you’ve been overdoing your studies or personal interests to the detriment of your work or health, you might now seek a balance or do some catch-up work to get back on track.
You can enjoy a buzz of ideas around you today, dear Virgo, but it’s best not to feel pressured to make sense of it all as there are still some missing puzzle pieces. As the Sun heads into a square to Saturn today, obstacles or your responsibilities can seem to magnify, taking on more significance. A roadblock related to a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project can arise or feel difficult to surmount. Even a setback can lead to a positive step concerning long-term happiness, however, as is usually the case with transits involving Saturn. You’re learning to look out for your “future self” and understanding more about what you need in the long run. Others may not be as forthcoming, warm, or expressive, which can feel a little cold but could also allow you enough space to discover resources you may not have known you had.
The Moon spends the day in your solar eighth house, dear Libra, and you continue to go within for some healing introspection. As much as you may want to now, it’s important not to rush a financial or intimate matter. Also today, Pluto ends its retrograde cycle that lasted over five months. The shift itself can feel a little dramatic, or you can feel pressure as it happens this week. However, things will soon take off, particularly in financial, domestic, and family matters. Your relationships with family and family roles are changing, and your determination to resolve challenges is building. Motivation and take-charge energy increases. Acknowledge the need to make changes and improvements for best results now, and own it! Home-related projects might unblock or gain momentum. Letting go of something that’s been dragging you down may be part of this energy.
The Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re in good shape for taking care of details. Relationships and your social needs come into stronger focus as the day advances. It’s a good time of the lunar month for giving close relationships special attention. You’re seeking more balance and perhaps some feedback. It can be stimulating and rather straightforward to come to a nice you-me balance in your relationships today. Others appreciate your sincerity. A theme of cooperation, friendliness, and openness is with you, although it can be difficult to relax your mind later today. It may be best to avoid setting things in stone. Aim to take your time digesting everything before making conclusions.
Earlier today is good for entertainment and a playful, cooperative mood, dear Sagittarius, but you prefer not to idle as the day advances. A more purposeful mindset kicks in with the Moon’s move into your solar sixth house. You’re ready to put the work in with the Moon’s move into your work and health sector for a couple of days. You can quite enjoy yourself as you take care of things. It’s a fine day for easy productivity. As much as the urge to get cracking on duties, chores, work, or health routines is with you, there can be some doubts later today. You can quickly tire of anything that feels run-of-the-mill or lacking in magic and poetry at the moment with Mercury challenged. Look for creative solutions since it can be hard to focus on priorities if you have too many of them.
You’re inclined to keep to yourself early day, dear Capricorn, but grow into a desire to share or express yourself. Fortunately, you’re received well. You tend to seek more interaction with the Moon’s move into Taurus and your solar fifth house. The Moon transits a sector of the chart for only two to three days, but it can serve to remind you of important needs. This particular transit encourages attention to self-expression, creativity, fun, pleasure, and leisure or entertainment. More than usual, you’re emotionally invested in your heartfelt pursuits. Venus harmonizes with the Moon, Saturn, and Chiron, boosting your social confidence and your personal outlook. You could be itching to break out of your usual schedules and habits. Later today, your attention span may be short, so aim to avoid taking on too much. Take this time to understand yourself and your feelings, but avoid making big decisions now.
You can find yourself busy although not very focused as the Moon finishes up its transit of your communications sector today, dear Aquarius. The Moon then enters your solar fourth house, and you crave more quiet, calm, comfort, and familiarity. You’re in particularly good shape for bringing more balance to your domestic world, especially with help from Venus. Pleasurable, restful, and simple activities are tonics for you now. Finding your center is important at this point in the lunar month. Domestic issues tend to override other concerns as the day advances. Because you’re particularly sensitive to chaotic environments, a Mercury-Chiron aspect coming into play tonight can put a damper on your outlook temporarily. Letting go of a tendency to overthink can be hard to do, but worth the effort.
A practical frame of mind continues early day as the Moon finishes up its transit of your solar second house, dear Pisces. With this transit, you tend to prefer keeping things status quo, although the energy of yesterday’s Full Moon is stirring a desire to make improvements. As the day advances, things pick up pace with the Moon’s move into your communications sector. Venus has just begun its transit of your partnership sector, helping you attract helpful or pleasant connections. Today’s good for satisfying conversations and interesting ideas. You’re inclined to want to reach out. A bond might strengthen through sincere communication. It can be a time of making peace with someone. Mental disconnects or doubts later today can slow you down just a little, but you’ll benefit from doing so.
