Avoid pushing too hard or gambling in your personal life today, dear Aries, as something that looks very attractive may prove to be useless later, or a desire that comes on suddenly may subside almost as quickly. With a Mars-Jupiter aspect active, it’s best to watch that you don’t go overboard in your enthusiasm. Guilt can undermine your confidence and might be an underlying issue in strange behaviors of others right now, even if it’s in disguise. Sometimes people treat you poorly because they are unhappy with themselves. Focus on those things that you can improve instead of dead ends. Also today, Saturn and Uranus return to form a square, reigniting tensions related to shifting money sources or a changing attitude toward personal possessions. You can be anxious to expand and grow, but worries about resources or funding can undermine you. You might wrestle with wanting to take risks but fearing change.
There is some tendency to want to push something better left alone today, dear Taurus, or the opposite: to back off when the timing is right. Watch that you don’t stress over things that don’t truly matter in the long run. Protect your interests, but recognize when you need to let go or walk away. That said, consider that some of your ideas are noteworthy, even if they aren’t coming together smoothly just yet. It’s best to stay grounded and keep in mind that some situations are somewhat tenuous temporarily. There may be a conflict between your social and home life today or a desire to branch out versus the need to stay put and replenish your energies. With Uranus in your sign returning to a square to Saturn, you might end up struggling with your personal needs for more freedom, spontaneity, and independence. When you try to express your originality or individuality, you could feel a bit off-center and ungrounded due to a simultaneous and strong pull to get yourself secure through your career or ambitions. In truth, it’s a time to free yourself from certain old habits and establish new and healthy routines. Fortunately, you’re doing a lot of work on yourself and your relationship with your inner world, reflecting positively in your ability to manage your responsibilities and thrive or succeed in the outside world.
While you can feel enthusiastic about getting your message across or getting where you want to go, it’s best to watch for the tendency to trip up in the process, dear Gemini. It’s not an ideal time for self-promotion or winning others over to your ideas. Aim to keep things moderate on all fronts, but especially on a professional level. The temptation to push too hard or go over the top to get one’s way is strong today but is unlikely to bring desired results due to challenging transits. It’s important to avoid taking on new work just because you feel you are capable today. Some wild cards can be related to secrets surfacing or struggling with letting go of the past and long-standing problems. These matters might interfere with your pursuit of a more structured, responsible lifestyle.
Venus in your sign these days tends to paint you in a good light, dear Cancer. However, you could find that there are misunderstandings or your timing is off in the first half of today. Some awkwardness in social situations is possible or expressing your desires can come across the wrong way at the moment. Slight tweaks and adjustments may be necessary if you’re looking to get something you want. Above all, avoid pushing things. Rumors circulating could frustrate you. Avoid the temptation to over-explain and let your actions do the most talking. As the day advances, it becomes far easier to let go and open up. Positive attention might come your way, and it can be a breath of fresh air, perhaps making its way to you from a surprising source. Your appeal increases, and you do particularly well in social situations, mingling, and networking. Friends or happiness goals can be enjoyable diversions.
A Venus-Chiron square colors the first half of the day, dear Leo, and you can be more sensitive to off rhythms or poor timing. Watch for reading a little too much into what others are saying or imagining what they might be thinking. It may be difficult to pinpoint the reason for discontent, but you might consider that it’s a temporary dip. Old issues that you thought you buried might pop up and invade your mind today. As the day advances, you’re in great shape to enjoy more freedoms. As Venus approaches harmony with Uranus, you find beauty in unexpected places or in the layers of a situation. Although you’ve been keeping more to yourself than usual, you’re willing to share some of yourself with those who will listen. You need emotional space, but you might enjoy others’ company in a detached, light way. Freeing yourself from worries about long-term goals can make for a happier day.
In the first half of the day, relationships can be touchy or tricky, dear Virgo. It’s a toss-up whether you need to give someone extra attention to keep things running smoothly or give people space and avoiding overthinking problems. Minor social hiccups are likely, and it’s best not to take them to heart. While listening to your “inner voice” is generally a good idea, if it’s laden with guilt, fear, or worry, then it’s only going to stir up trouble. Avoid the rumor mill if you can. As the day advances, you’re in a great position to move forward and shine as you do so. You can find great pleasure in learning, sharing, and connecting. It’s a good time to reach out, share what you’ve learned, mingle, converse, and otherwise boost friendships. New ideas and even some inspiration can result. It’s a time to feel freer and happier as your knowledge of the world around you grows.
In the first half of the day, people seem to require more care and sensitivity, dear Libra, and there is a strong inclination for misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Keep apologies short, if necessary. With Venus at the top of your chart these days, you’re making it easy for others to respect you. Authority figures, including bosses and parents, are likely to see you in a good light. Someone could support, sponsor, or otherwise endorse you, particularly as the day advances and Venus moves into harmony with Uranus in your sector of support and others’ resources. It’s a good time to flirt with new ideas, concepts, and activities. Freeing yourself from self-limiting beliefs of what you can or cannot do is what Uranus in this sector of your chart is about, and right now, this process helps you present the best version of yourself to others.
Tensions, both internal and with others, are possible in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. Someone might misunderstand your opinions or take them personally. Avoid explaining yourself to people who are acting narrow-minded but take the time to make things right with those who deserve your attention. Dissatisfaction might only resolve given a little time. As the day advances, you feel considerably freer to express yourself in new ways. It’s a beautiful time for a boost in a relationship. Keeping things fresh and exciting helps any relationships that have become predictable. People are drawn to your liveliness, charm, ideas, and wit today. Sharing ideas, philosophies, and beliefs can be mind-expanding and pleasant. Doing something offbeat or outside of the usual routine can be integral.
In the first half of the day, people can quickly feel slighted and are easily offended, dear Sagittarius, with a Venus-Chiron aspect in play. It may be better to avoid drama right now, which can very easily escalate. Instead, take more time to understand what it is you truly want. Trying to explain your way out of something is likely to be a waste of time right now. If rhythms in relationships are off temporarily, it’s best not to let them define your next move. As the day advances, you feel lighter and freer, particularly on an emotional level. You can experience a pleasant degree of detachment later today, and this is a welcome detour. It allows you just enough comfort and emotional distance from matters to enjoy yourself fully. Complicated issues seem far less complex or confusing. Loosening up your schedule helps you relax and have fun.
With today’s Solar Eclipse clearing the path for lifestyle improvements, dear Capricorn, ideas or insights gained now can help direct you along these lines. You’ll be taking charge of your work, daily routines, self-care programs, and health. However, there is some need to review before you make a fresh start. You may want to breathe some new life into old routines, for example. Perhaps due to a dilemma, a reinvigoration process begins, whether it’s about taking better care of yourself or recommitting to a work project. Aim to be content to be out of step or anonymous, just for now, as this can help you in the long run since it allows you to observe and redirect plans. Be sure to pace yourself and don’t jump into something without thinking. A new direction will come, and you don’t have to push for it. Instead, you’ll feel the motivation and courage build slowly but surely, eventually reaching a point where you’re in charge and confident in what you’re doing.
To clear the way for a fresh start after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Aquarius, you may need to take care of some unfinished business. Those projects or associations that have been holding you back from expressing your authentic, creative self may come under scrutiny. This eclipse can serve as a strong push to start anew regarding a romance, creative project, or the pursuit of joy and pleasure in your life. As you review old ideas, new perspectives can unveil. There could be a reconnection with an old friend that gets you thinking or viewing a past relationship in a new way. This helps set up the new, slate-clearing energy of this eclipse. It can also be a time for bringing back old hobbies and pastimes. Since this powerful New Moon occurs in your sector of romance, creative self-expression, recreation, children, and hobbies, events happening now and in the coming weeks set you up for new beginnings in one or more of these areas of life. You are likely to attract positive attention from others, especially romantically or creatively speaking. Allow the process to unfold, and keep in mind that eclipses can drain your energy temporarily.
If you’ve been undecided about a project launch, a move, or a personal change, dear Pisces, the energy of today’s Solar Eclipse can nudge you forward. However, take your time with brand new beginnings and aim to strategize and plan. Keep in mind that any backtracking you need to do now will contribute significantly to the strength of plans and future ventures. There can be some critical renovations and improvements in your home or with family relationships on the horizon. A fresh start may arise from a feeling of being in the dark or in limbo, necessitating a new approach. Whatever the reason, you’re starting anew with your home or personal life, family, or needs for nurture, comfort, and safety. It can involve excavating and looking to past patterns to better understand where you want to go. It’s time to assess what may have held you back from thriving, mainly related to your career and domestic world, and how you balance your time between them. The coming weeks are powerful for taking charge of your home life, attention to matters of security and safety, connecting with family and your own emotions. This eclipse can serve as a cosmic nudge to find your roots, learn your worth, build your sense of security, and focus on improving your support system or base of operations. There can be the need or desire to put your personal life first now, and changes may be afoot.
