Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, March 29th
Your ego needs may seem more insistent than usual this morning, dear Aries, but they can be challenging to satisfy now with the Sun in your sign in square aspect to Saturn. This transit reminds you of the rules or limits of a situation. You are more sensitive to criticism right now. This is a time for working towards a long-term goal and reminding yourself that patience will be rewarded, rather than worrying too much about temporary obstacles. Rising above it means you win. You may not get what you want just now, likely due to career or other responsibilities and limitations, but any slowdowns experienced today can help you to focus your attention on those things that truly matter in the long term. Today is about reshuffling your priorities and finding better, more efficient ways to get things done.
The Sun and Saturn form a tense square aspect today, dear Taurus, and you may be seeing a project or situation for its flaws. Tension can result over a difference of opinion, but the problem may run deeper than the topic. Others may not seem to be onboard, willing, or eager to follow along. As much as you’d prefer to lay low and get the rest you need, obligations are likely to pull you out of your comfort zone now. While there can be a small letdown or a time of seeing the glass half empty, keep in mind it’s a temporary lull or a checkpoint. Some delays can be experienced now that can temporarily deter you, but if you use this time wisely, you’ll discover ways to improve plans and projects. If you are dreading facing a problem or if you can’t see past an issue to see the bigger picture, try tackling something small to begin with and aiming to do more in steps going forward. As the day advances, you’ll feel more capable.
A Sun-Saturn square influences the first half of the day, dear Gemini, and can point to a reality check of sorts in a friendship or intimate relationship, or related to money owed. A plan or dream may hit some snags, or it may no longer seem feasible. Even so, it may only take some refinement of your expectations to get back on track. As well, it’s important to avoid cutting corners, since with Saturn strong and challenging, this is a day for paying closer attention to rules and details for best results. If you feel left out and misunderstood, or you’re dealing with issues related to trust and possessiveness, try to be gentle with others and yourself instead of jumping too quickly to conclusions. As the day advances, you’re inclined to worry less about what others are doing and thinking, and more focused on making your own happiness.
A Sun-Saturn square aspect influences the first half of today, dear Cancer, and you may be feeling a little more accountable for what you say and do. This is a time for thinking in more straightforward terms and getting the basics right before moving forward. Others may seem to be standing in the way of your progress, but with a little effort and focus on your own goals, this can be a good time for making necessary tweaks that contribute to long-term success. For some of you, there could be a let-down or a feeling of pressure related to a relationship or a career matter, but any apparent slowdowns occurring now require patience and a positive attitude. Or, there may be a feeling that a partnership is restricting you from achieving your goals or reaching your potential, and this can be frustrating. Take things one step at a time, and don’t be afraid to go without just for the time being. You may need to pare things down to move forward. The second half of the day flows well, however, and you can be quite productive.
With a Sun-Saturn square influencing today, dear Leo, it’s a time for thinking in simple terms and getting the basics right. Pushing meets with resistance now. This transit can serve as a reality check of sorts, particularly if you’ve been ignoring essential details. It’s a time for correcting problems that may have accumulated due to shortcuts taken in the past. You could be feeling drained now, and work and daily responsibilities can seem overwhelming. As disappointing or sobering as this transit can be, you can turn this energy to your advantage. Slowing down can help you reorient yourself and adjust your expectations for the better. Disorganization now may need to be addressed and handled. In fact, disorganization may limit your ability to enjoy other activities that you’ve been looking forward to, so tackling that problem can solve many others! As the day advances, it’s easier to pour energy into your work.
A Sun-Saturn square points to a need to consider what’s best for you in the long term in your relationships, plans, and projects, dear Virgo. If you’ve been ignoring practical details, you’ll feel the need to handle them now. Getting yourself into a working frame of mind is a good idea now. Saturn performs best when you follow the rules, streamline, and simplify. Since these things will reduce waste and save you time in the long run, even if it feels as if it’s slow going right now, it’s ultimately to your advantage. Getting rid of redundancies may be in focus and quite satisfying, in fact. It’s not the most comfortable time to get close to someone, and responsibilities may weigh you down. In some cases, others may be unhelpful, disapproving, or in their own worlds so that you have a sense that you’re left to your own resources. However, as you go about your business on your own, you may very well enjoy it, particularly as the day advances and the Moon in your sign connects well with energetic and independent Mars.
A Sun-Saturn square influences the first half of the day, dear Libra, and reminds you of responsibilities, mainly related to family and home life since Saturn is currently transiting the sector of your chart that rules these matters. With this aspect active, people may be a little tight or spare with their emotions, or they’re withholding. Relations with family or a partner (or even between the two) can be strained. Domestic chores or problems in the family dynamic can weigh heavily on your mind. However, experiences today may serve as a valuable reality check, and may very well be blessings in disguise. Slow down, follow the rules, and discipline yourself. Patience has its rewards in the form of long-term benefits. Areas of weakness are magnified, probably appearing more significant than they are in reality. If they seem overwhelming, start small and work one step at a time. Saturn asks you to simplify and doesn’t want you to rush! If you invest yourself in a plan to strengthen and rebuild patiently and methodically, you’ll ultimately save a lot of time and energy.
With a Sun-Saturn square influencing the first half of the day, dear Scorpio, it’s best to exercise patience in the face of temporary blocks. You are more aware of, or sensitive to, limits and restrictions, which can be a little discouraging. However, remind yourself that taking your time to perfect something will be more rewarding, and perhaps satisfying as well, in the long run. With Saturn in your solar third house, daily affairs, errands, and duties can serve to frustrate if they get in the way of your ability to thrive in your work or if they drain you of energy. The third house also rules communications, transportation, neighbors, siblings, and studies. It may be difficult to gain cooperation from others or even a direct route to where you want to go just for now. Watch for how you express yourself today since with Saturn in your communications sector, you can sometimes take on a negative, defensive tone that doesn’t do you any favors. Exercise patience, follow the rules and avoid pushing too hard, and you’ll get over this hump. This can be a useful checkpoint as you compare what you want to do with what’s realistic. As the day advances, a Moon-Mars trine is encouraging, filling you with confidence and independence to move forward.
A Sun-Saturn square influencing the first half of the day can remind you of certain realities and practical factors related to recent projects and relationship developments, dear Sagittarius. Your attention is drawn to limitations, likely having to do with resources, including money, and this clashes with what you want to do or with filling your desires. Another possibility with this combination is a sense that others are not treating you for what you’re worth, or for what you deserve. While the Sun’s spotlight on problems magnifies them and can feel discouraging, consider going back to the drawing board and making adjustments. This is a day for following the rules and putting in extra effort to get things right. It’s important to be patient, to think in realistic, practical terms, and to learn from any setbacks or discouraging situations. Taking a lesson from a humbling experience can be very worth your while, saving you time and energy in the long run. Attention to practical matters now brings rewards later.
For the first time since Saturn entered your sign, a Sun-Saturn square aspect occurs, dear Capricorn. This can serve as a valuable, although possibly frustrating, checkpoint. You are especially aware of rules, restrictions, and limitations with this transit, and it’s time for adjusting a plan or initiative rather than pushing ahead. You may need to get nagging problems out of the way before you can enjoy some peace. You might be feeling a little cut off from others with the Sun illuminating and challenging Saturn in your sign. If others seem to be overlooking or undervaluing you or if they are unsupportive, aim to be more explicit about your needs rather than waiting for people to jump in and help. Even so, consider whether or not confidence about what you deserve is low at the moment before asserting yourself. You might plan to ask for what you want on a day when you feel surer of yourself. As the day advances, the Moon-Mars trine encourages and lifts you up. You feel more empowered and ready to take on a challenge.
A Sun-Saturn square influencing the first half of today reminds you of your responsibilities, dear Aquarius. It’s important to note that this transit has the effect of magnifying problem areas which helps you identify and work on resolving them. However, it can be discouraging, too. Communications may be blocked, delayed, or negative. Areas that have become sloppy or redundant become apparent today. The desire to reach out and share your story or connect with others can reach some blocks today, and these may very well be self-limitations with Saturn moving through your solar twelfth house stimulating fears of being too vulnerable or putting yourself out there. This is a better time for slowing down than pushing a plan forward. It’s not a time for instant gratification, but rather for putting in a little extra work to get something right. Keep in mind that you may be judging yourself or your performance too harshly, but taking notes or lessons from whatever is happening now will probably serve you best.
A Sun-Saturn square today points to a chance to reassess recent plans, dear Pisces. You’re looking for substance for your ideas and dreams. Believing in yourself based on a realistic assessment of your capabilities, which is indeed the best kind of confidence, can help you to fill out the details and make the critical refinements that will help round everything out. Even so, this transit can initially feel deflating, perhaps magnifying frustrations with a friend, concerns about money, or restrictions related to a plan or dream. If people in your life don’t seem supportive right now, try not to take this to heart and opt for a peaceful, solo solution temporarily. Attend to your responsibilities, believe in yourself, and honor your commitments. These things will get you over almost any hump when Saturn is involved. If you’re dealing with a humbling experience now, aim to take the lesson from it and move forward a little wiser. The day feels more encouraging as it advances.
