This is a powerful time for making your mark, learning or developing a talent that benefits your career, and going after your goals with gusto, dear Aries. You are determined to reach your goals. This may be a time of intensity in your career or with your reputation. You are in the position of leader. You might feel scrutinized now, but feedback may very well fuel your ambition to improve. Taking your ego out of the equation is important now, although not very easy! Try to beat your “best score” rather than worrying too much about what others are doing. You may be going at a project in an entirely new way. If you channel your powerful energy well, you can get a whole lot done. You can revitalize something important to you. Try not to waste this opportunity on battles and frustrations. Later today, aim to learn from your interactions, even if they are frustrating. Your responses to others can surprise you and jumpstart your own thinking.
This can be an excellent time for learning or advancing in your trade, dear Taurus. This can also be a time for powerful experiences that change your perspective. The goal should be to purge and let go, responsibly, if you’re seeking out or defending a truth today. While this can be a strong time for getting an answer, things can get heated and intense pretty quickly, so it’s important to be mindful of where you put your energy. Similarly, stubbornness can be a positive when it involves working towards an important goal, and counter-productive when you shut yourself down completely to valuable alternatives. Watch for over-defending an opinion. It can be a good time for making important changes to educational, legal, and travel plans. A partner may be especially interested and involved today. A relationship may reach a new level. Later today, look for different ways to approach an old problem.

You’re unlikely to settle for second best. It’s an excellent time for quitting a bad habit or committing to a lifestyle change. You can be extremely focused especially where it comes to eliminating something unhealthy from your life or uncovering important truths. There is bravery about what you are prepared to face, but you may push things too far. Financial pressures are possible now, making it necessary to identify areas that need to change. Relationships can really heat up, and issues of trust can be in strong focus. Later today, it would be wise to avoid coming to quick conclusions or snapping out poorly thought-out observations.
You are attracting intense energy into your life through your relationships now, dear Cancer. This can be a time of fierce competition or difficult people getting the upper hand in your life for some of you. Issues of trust may be at the root of conflicts or reunions. However, any disputes between you and someone close to you that have been stewing for some time can emerge now and demand action, and avoidance isn’t an option! Frustrations and difficulties can escalate quickly now and this week, largely because the mood is dense, sensitive, and complex. There may be some tough decision-making or pressure that forces an issue. Aim to be strong within yourself so that you can project this strength outward, as people around you can be trying to get their way or could be more forceful and assertive than you. Later today, different perspectives can be frustrating, but they can also be good learning experiences!
Problems with work or health issues that have been frustrating can now seem intolerable, dear Leo. You’re likely to want to wipe the slate clean and begin anew in some area of your life. Something important is coming to a head, likely in the areas of work, service, health, habits, daily routines, and self-care efforts.

You might decide to eliminate habits in your routine that are counter-productive in order to focus on those that serve your greater goals. Watch for power struggles with others, as the general atmosphere today inclines people to extremes in their attempts to gain some control over their lives. If you let frustrations overwhelm you, you are wasting this powerful energy that is best harnessed and channeled into productive work and goal-setting. Later today, a conversation or even a criticism can awaken you to a new perspective on a matter.

You may have the chance to zero in on a problem or difficult matter now, and this tunnel vision can help or hinder you, depending on how you decide to manage it. Obsessive thinking is not going to do much more than stress you out. However, if you can identify the deeper problem that is driving any compulsive behavior or thinking today, then you also have a chance to face your fears and do something about them. You are driven more by instinct than by reason today, so do take care before taking action. Watch for an overactive ego and competitiveness.

Certainly, if there have been problems brewing with loved ones, they’re likely to beg for airspace now. Today’s energies can challenge you to confront and manage emerging issues that have been buried, swept under the carpet, or otherwise hidden. There can be pressures coming from family or a partner. It can be difficult to remain logical, cool, and reasonable with so much going on inside! Try not to push yourself too hard, as it takes patience, time, and deliberate action to regain control of a situation that has spiraled. Rushing only adds fuel to the fire of tension. Later today, you may not be seeing a situation in the same way as a significant other, but instead of launching a debate, see if you can learn from your differences.

Instead, it’s about controlling your own behavior and actions. There can be a tendency to push too far or to test yourself and your limits. The energies of the day can point to provocation or productivity, and the latter becomes you the most. Your powers of persuasion are even stronger than usual now.
Mars and Pluto come together in your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and what you make, own, and believe in can be sensitive topics. If you’ve been unhappy with your money situation or with how others treat you, frustrations can reach a boiling point today, and you’ll want to take action to make significant changes.

At the root of most conflicts occurring now is the desire to gain more control over your life and your material resources. You don’t want to feel at the mercy of others or bad situations.

You can come to epiphanies, sudden insights, and emerging truths that help you uncover new interests and more suitable goals. Work on self-improvement and self-control for amazing results now.

Those things buried or hidden can emerge in unexpected ways. Self-honesty is essential for managing your emotions and moving forward feeling refreshed and purged. If you find yourself obsessing over past mistakes or otherwise attracted to things that have the power to bring you down, put a stop to it. The focus now should be on letting go and releasing rather than building up more frustrations and resentments. Be mindful of the company you keep, as there can be a tendency to say too much or to reveal sensitive information. Positively, this energy can point to intense, exciting connections, personal revelations, and projects that motivate and thrill you. Your dreaming mind is particularly intense and powerful now.
Intense feelings for or about a friend, group, long-term goal, or cause can be in focus now, dear Pisces.

Power doesn’t come from knowing all, but rather from knowing yourself and being honest with yourself. You could be in the position to make changes to your circle of friends, and decisions can be tough, or alterations are necessary for a plan or project to continue to be relevant and viable. However, the “cleaning up” energy with us now ultimately brings us to a stronger place. Focus not on getting rid of things but on rebuilding and recycling.
