Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 3rd

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Making deep, long-lasting changes is favored today, and especially this morning, dear Aries. Organizing a group endeavor may figure strongly now, and can be quite successful. People in your life tend to be showing their support through their actions and help you to feel more secure. A realistic approach to your relationships wins favor right now – expectations are strong but reasonable. There may be a need to cut something out, particularly when it comes to friendship matters or group activities, and possibly also superfluous goals. You are more able to see what is tripping you up, and from there you can take the necessary steps to make improvements. Gaining power or advancing your interests on professional levels can be in focus. It’s an excellent time for getting support.

Taurus

Taurus

This can be a good time for gaining others’ support and for activities with a partner, dear Taurus. Your ambition to get things done is stimulated today, and you are very willing to handle the necessary details that will make you feel more in charge and on top of things. All types of “pruning” activities are favored, as it’s easier than usual to identify the truly frivolous time wasters and energy drainers. You are learning how to make the best of what you have. Business benefits from using strategy in your planning. This is also a powerful time for bonding with a partner or furthering a forming relationship. Cooperation comes in the areas of joint finances or assets.

Gemini

Gemini

Saturn in your partnership zone can sometimes show you the more challenging side of relationships, dear Gemini, but today’s Sun-Saturn influence can spotlight one of the positive sides to this transit. You may be benefiting from entertaining fewer (not lower) expectations of others. Patience with others has strong rewards for you. There can be positive steps taken towards becoming healthier or obtaining better health care. A determination to take care of areas you’ve neglected can be behind this. This is also a strong time for broaching tricky topics, getting a load off your chest, and resolving emotional conflicts and problems. You’re coming across well, and people are finding you relatable.

Cancer

Cancer

This can be a fabulous time for stirring up passion in a relationship, dear Cancer, and for taking a connection to the next level. Conversations and admissions may stir up some deep matter, but there is excellent energy with you for moving beyond a problem and growing in the process. Address problem areas. This can also be a practically productive time. Research and digging for answers can be appealing and rewarding now. Saturn’s transit has been placing more demands on you for effort in your work and accomplishing daily goals. This is a good time for meeting these responsibilities and working on building your health, both mental and physical. A mature approach is required now. Take things step by step. Make incremental changes to your routines that bring more structure to your day.

Leo

Leo

Your ruler, the Sun, is forming a harmonious aspect with Saturn today, dear Leo, and with other supportive, productive energies with you now, this can be a strong day for advancing a personal interest or accomplishing something important to you. A partner may be involved with this. For example, you may be partnering up with someone and organizing an area of your life, coming to a decision, or editing a project. Strengthening a love relationship or creative partnership can be in focus for some of you. Demonstrating yourself as reliable and prudent can bring rewards and score you brownie points as well. There can be bravery about facing problem areas with health, home life, or work, and the will to make improvements can take you places.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

You can be especially focused on making improvements today, dear Virgo, and strong, supportive aspects nudge you along the way. If you need to put something unhealthy or negative behind you, this is a great time to do so. Generally speaking with Saturn in your sector of family and home, you’re challenged to put your domestic life into order, and while this is a long process, you can take some positive steps towards this end today. Your sense of tomorrow is strong, and your instincts are likely to tell you that working on making today more secure will help you down the road. Taking responsibility can feel good now. Relationships with children, a lover, and even a creative project can improve as you explore ways to get to the bottom of problem areas.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

There is strong, investigative power in the energies of the day, dear Libra, and for you, this can be applied to financial and domestic matters quite successfully. This is a time for bravely facing areas that on a typical day you might pass on. Think in terms of overhauling, recycling, and redoing for best results now. Saturn’s transit of your communications sector does sometimes feel heavy, but the challenges it brings are useful for long-term success. Today, you may be seeing the benefits of discipline and taking more responsibility for your communications. A sense of better organization and order can be empowering now. Good energy is with you for applying yourself to creative pursuits and hobbies, and possibly for productive types of recreation.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Look for opportunities to advance your personal interests today, dear Scorpio, if they don’t find you first. Your powers of influence and persuasion are strong now. You’re able to get to the bottom of a problem or you may solve a mystery. You are very perceptive on a regular day, and your perceptions are even sharper now. There is also good energy for your practical affairs. You may discover a way to boost your sense of security or safeguard your possessions. The desire to feel secure and grounded is with you these days with Saturn challenging you to better understand and manage your finances. Today, this theme is highlighted in a positive way. Small efforts to connect with family can go a long way towards strengthening ties. Slowing down can improve the quality of your work, and also your appreciation of the simpler things in life.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

You can feel pleasantly productive today, dear Sagittarius, and any efforts, however big or small, to get yourself better organized can go a long way now. This is a time for simplifying, getting down to basics, and focusing your energies into priorities. With Saturn in your sign, you are experiencing a greater need to be personally responsible. If you feel overwhelmed, your best bet is to direct your attention to small but important tasks one by one – those things that have been neglected but now demand your focus. Do what you can to avoid over-committing yourself to others when you truly need to pay more attention to what needs fixing on a personal level. There is also strong energy for making more of what you have and solving problems related to money and valuables.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is a strong time for advancing projects and pursuing your goals, dear Capricorn, and you’ll find that you easily gain the cooperation of others. There can be a strong desire to be part of something important that benefits people, to make a difference, and to help transform others’ lives in some way. A project or goal that is dear to your heart may be in strong focus. There is also steady, productive energy to the day. A strong sense of order and organization can please you now. You might receive good feedback or appreciation. You may be looking into ways to improve your finances, business, or practical affairs. Think in terms of recycling and reworking, as well as safeguarding and preserving, what you already have.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Your ambitions are strongly stimulated now, dear Aquarius. With Mars in your solar tenth house, your ambitions are stimulated and at times challenged. Today, you can very successfully draw upon your past experiences in order to make good decisions about your career or life direction. You can be focused on making long-term improvements now. You seem to be attracting the right resources or people, and a new and improved game plan or strategy for taking charge of your life may come to you now. As well, people can be quite helpful in practical ways today. Group or team work can be successful now. It may also be quite beneficial to share some of your expertise and know-how with others.

Pisces

Pisces

Any project or endeavor that requires both practicality and bravery or focus can benefit today, dear Pisces. You can experience determination to improve, win, and accomplish now. Competitive activities, including business and sport, are favored. Eliminating waste in your professional life can be especially helpful to you with Saturn transiting your solar tenth house these days, and while you can sometimes feel quite a bit of pressure to perform, there are distinct long-term benefits to taking care of business day to day. The Sun helps illuminate the positive side to this transit today, and you’re in a great position to spot problem areas and to take steps towards fixing them. You are being realistic about what you can accomplish, and this helps you to hit the mark.

Astrology of Today – January 17, 2016

Summary:

Mars is near the midpoint of a Venus-Jupiter square. This is a very sociable, fertile, relationship-oriented time, but can also be a time of some indulgence and excess. Entertaining can be in focus. Competitive feelings experienced now can be stimulating and invigorating. Feelings of elation in love or with regards to the pleasures of life can lead us to overdo, overindulge, overspend, and overstate our feelings. Mars is moving into a trine with Neptune, however, which can soften the rough edges. Creative energy is strong now.

  • The Moon is in Aries all day until 12:48 AM.
  • The Moon is void until 12:48 AM (since 6:26 PM yesterday).
  • The Moon is in Taurus from 12:48 AM forward.

Planet: Venus

Colors: Light Blue, Green, Pink, Copper Hues

Crystals: Jade, Lapis Lazuli, Rose Quartz, Coral, Emerald, Malachite, Copper

Aroma: Rose, Yarrow, Cardamon, Venus Oil, Strawberry, Sandlewood, Saffron, and Vanilla

Herb: Thyme

The day of Venus, Friday takes its name from Frigga, the Goddess of Love and Transformation. She rules the spiritual aspects of people as they manifest on the physical. Because of this, Friday is sometimes thought of as unpredictable. Magical aspects: love, friendship, reconciliation, and beauty.

Friday has often been associated with relaxation as it is at the end of the week, but the good feeling that comes with it.

Friday also has a lot to do with the fact that it is ruled by the planet Venus – The Goddess of Love. Lusterless relationships and disputes may be settled on Fridays with the aid of a spell to Venus and perhaps a small personal sacrifice.

Friday is also associated with Caribbean wealth spells and has been known to improve friendships, Platonic love and increase your desirability. Be careful what you wish for on Friday, Venus’ eyes could be smiling!

This is the proper day of the week to perform spells and rituals involving love, romance, marriage, sexual matters, physical beauty, partnerships, friendships, social activities, strangers, pleasure, music, incense, perfumes, nature, and arts and crafts.

Get A Jump On Tomorrow….

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 15th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

While the morning can find your thinking a little fuzzy and perhaps in need of a rest or a creative distraction, dear Aries, as the day progresses, your concentration and focus increases. You can in fact do quite a bit today, finding it rather natural to hone in on flaws, prioritize, and organize. You are especially invested in your current projects, and it’s important that you have the freedom to do your work in your own way. You’ll get a whole lot more done independently now, but the Moon in your sign all day does incline you to want some acknowledgement or a feeling of reinforcement.

Taurus

Taurus

The Moon pulled into your privacy and soul sector last night, dear Taurus. This is a monthly brief transit that lasts about two and a half days, reminding you of your need for emotional regeneration and renewal. This can be a time of working under the radar, less visibility, and of focus on review and processing recent events and feelings. You may be closing a chapter on something in your life, or simply feeling the need for extra rest. The Moon’s easy connection with Saturn today can help you to better see what attitudes and situations that you are better off leaving behind you. It’s not always that practicality and emotions combine so easily, so take advantage of this clearer grip on reality.

Gemini

Gemini

There can be a bit of mental fog in the early hours today, dear Gemini, with your ruler, Mercury, in challenging aspect to Neptune, the planet of illusion. However, as the day moves forward, you’re likely to get a stronger grip on your priorities, and you may very well enjoy filling your responsibilities, as you feel especially capable of doing so. You may be dealing with issues of assertion and accommodation with friends today, and have a better chance of finding a nice balance. It’s easier than usual to put some emotions aside in order to accomplish something important to you right now. You may be seeing the more reliable side of others, and fully appreciating it.

Cancer

Cancer

There is an inclination for you to want to go your own way today, dear Cancer, but also a stronger sense of your duties as well as others’ expectations. You may be in the position of leader or manager now, and can adopt this role quite naturally at the moment. Try not to carry more than your fair share of the load, unless you’re totally happy doing so. The expression “be careful what you’re good at” might apply now, as there is a tendency for others to expect you to take over. Don’t overload yourself. There can be interesting insight into a partnership or close friendship now.

Leo

Leo

The day may get off to a bit of a murky start, dear Leo, but rather quickly begins to stimulate your ambitions, desire to produce, and urge to take care of priorities. If you have a hobby, pet project, or studies that could use some attention and focus, this is a strong time for directing your energies into them. When it comes to learning, you are taking a hands-on and self-directed approach, needing to see results for yourself in order to remain engaged. The practical side of your mind is in strong focus now. It’s easier to put emotions aside and block out distractions in order to get something done.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

The day can begin with some misunderstandings or confusion, dear Virgo, but as it advances, you’re more inclined to want to roll up your sleeves and get things done, particularly when it comes to domestic chores. It’s a day for taking measured steps towards a goal rather than attempting to push forward quickly. You can be feeling a stronger drive to feel more secure and orderly in your home or base of operations. While responsibilities in your personal life are increasing these days, you feel more equipped than usual to take care of them.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

You can feel strongly motivated to understand a close relationship or to know where you stand with someone today, dear Libra. You are showing your affection in practical ways these days, and others may not be especially forthcoming with their appreciation, but their actions are likely to speak volumes now. You’re especially skilled at bringing others together or encouraging people to get along today. You may find yourself in the role of mediator or go-between, and you’re quite competent in this position! The Moon spends the day and all of tomorrow in your partnership sector, putting your emotional focus quite squarely on your relationships. While you should probably watch for over-investing in them, it’s generally a good time to bond and improve your connections.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

You can experience a stronger drive to seek security and to see tangible results for your efforts today, dear Scorpio, although you might begin the day feeling less than focused. You’re inclined to want to work on your own or at your own pace, and you might find it easier to block out the usual distractions. This is a time for developing a better balance between supporting or assisting others, and asserting your authority. It’s a good time in general for handling the details that will further your long-term goals or career, and this is highlighted today.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

In the early hours of the day, you might find it difficult to concentrate, dear Sagittarius, and we should watch for a tendency to misunderstand others or skip instructions. However, as the day moves forward, you can be feeling increasingly more focused and interested in seeing some results. Ambitions are gently nurtured, and you can be especially realistic, but you’re also inclined to want to focus on some fun or creative pursuits, making it a good time to work on hobbies or pet projects. People may be recognizing your competence or natural talents, which further motivates you to do your best.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Your brain may need a little break early today, dear Capricorn, with Mercury in your sign in challenging aspect to Neptune. You might want to feed your mind something imaginative or creative. As the day advances, there is a growing desire to get things done, and you’re most interested in tackling problems at their root. Home and family matters tend to fare well now, but possibly at the expense of other life “departments” today. Still, you seem to need to get your domestic life running smoothly before taking on the world, and this is a good time to do so.

Aquarius

Aquarius

You may be taking on a nurturing or supportive role today, dear Aquarius, and while the early hours of the day may find you and people around you a little foggy-minded, as the day moves forward, you are more and more productive. You are radiating a real air of competence now, so don’t be surprised if others turn to you for help or to take the lead in some practical way. There can be a pioneering streak that emerges, as you’re interested in getting a jump on things. Friendships and making connections can be in focus, but you’re also inclined to thrive in self-directed activities at the moment.

Pisces

Pisces

The early hours of the day can stimulate misunderstandings, missed directions, or some form of confusion, dear Pisces, but once these are sorted, you become clearer and more focused. In fact, this is a day of increased responsibility, so take advantage. Your sense of practical priorities is strong. The desire to have a little more control of your life is a motivating factor now, and the need for tangible results improves your self-discipline. Responsibilities to loved ones are in focus, and instead of feeling burdened, you’re more inclined to want to roll up your sleeves and get down to business today.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, January 14th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

You have a good head for practical and work matters today, dear Aries. You are examining past patterns in new ways particularly with issues surrounding your reputation, work, health, parents, and career. There can be interesting insights or new understandings of a past problem. Thoughts of past relationships, connections, and even projects can be intense now, and people or information can surface that jumpstart all of this thinking. The important thing is that you are looking at these things with new eyes, and conclusions you draw now can be significant. Problem solving skills improve. Make a special effort to be cooperative and cheerful with others, as these are easier to access and are sure to be returned. Giving others a pat on the back can help everything roll along smoothly.

Taurus

Taurus

This is another day for enjoying good humor and easier self-expression, dear Taurus. If you throw yourself into something that truly pleases you, you will feel stronger and happier for it. Particularly with matters related to education, travel, or publishing, you have the chance to see things in new ways. You can find it especially easy to relax and find ways to enjoy yourself now. The things you read and hear about today can be helpful for future projects. This can be a time of drawing upon past experience and creating something new from it. Wonderful energy is with you for sharing your happiness with others, for resolving conflicts, and for solving problems. A partner or love interest could be amorous. Communication defines your friendships right now, so make sure that you’re keeping in touch.

Gemini

Gemini

Self-improvement endeavors are highly favored today, dear Gemini, as your ruler, Mercury, harmonizes with forward-looking Jupiter. You’re also very likely to come to an agreement with someone and to enjoy some boosted popularity.  Relating cooperatively with an important “other” in your life figures strongly now. You’re seeing others and various projects in your life as a whole rather than all the parts, which can be a little flawed! It’s another good day for discussing private or personal matters. It’s also strong for looking back at an old problem in a new way. Important connections can be made now. Make time to chat with a colleague or special friend, as you might learn something to your benefit.

Cancer

Cancer

This is a day for improved spirits and positive attitudes, dear Cancer. We are not caught up in petty matters now, and more interested in cooperating and sharing common goals. It’s a good time to express your affections, feelings, and ideas, and for looking at a relationship in a new way. Illumination or insight may come. Even if you don’t have all the answers yet, it’s nevertheless a powerful time for seeing problems and people in a new light. Counseling, negotiating, and revisiting an old friendship can be in focus.

Leo

Leo

This is another positive day in which you’re ready to make changes and to consider new approaches or perspectives, dear Leo. It can be an important day for looking at a health or work issue in a new light. An important idea on these fronts may be developing now. You may be in helping or serving mode, and fully enjoying it. It’s also a strong day for analyzing and negotiating money matters. It’s better to think about what you can do to improve and tweak current projects and ideas than for starting all-new ones, but your thinking in this regard is sharp.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Your ideas, thoughts, and creative process all flow quite spontaneously now, dear Virgo, and you can find it’s an excellent time for expressing yourself through creative mediums. Your thoughts may turn to travel or higher learning today, as you crave a little more from life than you typically do. This does not mean you are feeling discontented, because you are actually quite centered and peaceful today. It simply means you are recognizing a need for more creative and expressive outlets. Thinking in bigger terms than the usual is beneficial now. You have winning ways when it comes to matters of the heart. You easily put others at ease, and you might meet someone quite charming.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

This is a good day for seeing things in a new, positive light, dear Libra. While there is strong energy for home and family matters today, socializing and connecting can lead to important discoveries and easy answers. You may go out of your way to help someone out today, and it can be very gratifying. In general these days you are more willing to give of yourself and make others happy. You may be trying to make sense of family matters and past patterns, and you can arrive at important conclusions that help you to move forward. There can also be new ideas born out of old ones. Take notes! You are learning a lot today, from your own intuition and insight, and from those around you, perhaps indirectly.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

This can be a great time for sharing positive thoughts, help, and optimism, dear Scorpio. Be supportive and open for best results, and welcome the support of others. This is an excellent time for writing, particularly about your professional aims or for business, such as promotion or publicity work. You are not caught up in petty matters now, and more interested in cooperating and sharing common goals. Self-study can be beneficial now as well. You can be looking at things in a new light, particularly related to  learning, communications, siblings, and mental interests and projects. New energy can be brought to old issues.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

This is a strong day for problem solving, dear Sagittarius. You might gain a new understanding of an old problem, particularly related to money, finances, business, work, and personal possessions or valuables. With a new, bigger perspective, the details of any plan seem to fall into place. You have a little more faith in your natural talents and your capabilities, and this tends to boost others’ perception of your value, especially in the business world or with those in authority. Sharing ideas with co-workers might be rewarding now. You might decide to give someone the benefit of the doubt and this makes you feel good about yourself.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

This is a strong day for looking at problems in a new way, dear Capricorn. Your point of view is wide angle lens, and this helps you to see things differently, leading you to different conclusions and insights. With the Sun and retrograde Mercury aligning in your sign, it’s a time for taking stock of recent events, and for drawing upon the past for ideas and insights, which can be significant in the formation of new or improved ideas down the road. You are especially “heard” today, and generally received well, but with more impact and Mercury still retrograde, you may want to take special care when communicating. Your ideas, thoughts, and creative process all flow quite spontaneously. Make room in your mind for positive thoughts and new ideas.

Aquarius

Aquarius

There can be important new insight into the past, as well as your innermost feelings and subconscious mind today, dear Aquarius. You have the unusual ability to look behind and ahead of you. Your ability to support or advise others can be strong now as well. Private time is helpful now, although you are likely to feel quite connected with others. Even your dreams, night and day ones, may be telling you something important. There could be a conversation about a personal matter, a secret revealed, or simply some extra thinking about the past. For some, a surprise meeting or venue, smell, or situation can bring back memories. You are coming to a new understanding of a past matter through new information, or looking at something with new eyes.

Pisces

Pisces

This can be a fine day for communicating with friends and exchanging ideas, dear Pisces, and you may be making sense out of a past experience or problem with a friend. A rewarding conversation can be part of the picture now, and the inclination is to think ahead and plan around new goals. Gaining new perspective on matters helps you to rise above the small things. You might also come to the realization that a person means more to you than you had previously thought. It’s also an important day for taking in and processing recent events, particularly related to friendships and allegiances. Ideally, a new understanding of an old problem will be reached.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 8th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

These days are excellent for focus and determination in your career, dear Aries. It’s also a good period generally for making necessary changes in relationships with a parent or boss. If there is a negative attitude or bad habit that you need to kick, this may be the time to do so. Patience wins the day, although you could be feeling in no mood to conform to others’ wishes this morning. As the day moves forward, your patience increases. Decisions made today, particularly involving relationships, money, and higher education, tend to be long term and significant, and perhaps quite practical or even overly so. There may be a sobering moment now that pushes you forward. With a New Moon occurring tomorrow, however, this is not necessarily a good time to launch something important to you. Making resolutions is just fine, especially if it’s about taking a hard look at what kinds of attitudes and situations that need to go before moving on.

Taurus

Taurus

There may be some confusion about a friendship or group alliance this morning, dear Taurus, but if you’re open to learning from others and from your experiences, it’s a good time for understanding and accepting differences, and getting to a better place for it. Being realistic about your financial situation is important now. Whether it’s good or bad, knowing where you stand is empowering; avoiding the issue only serves to undermine you. Know that there are solutions to any problem you face. Consider wise counsel. A loan or mortgage could come through, but whatever does emerge now comes with increased responsibility. There are solutions to problems to be found from circumstances today, and they’re very practical ones. It’s a strong day for applying yourself to something and working solidly. The New Moon tomorrow can alter your focus or goals, but today is strong for realizing what needs to go, particularly related to excess pleasure, in order for you to move forward in a healthier manner.

Gemini

Gemini

With Venus aligning with Saturn in your opposing sign today, dear Gemini, it’s important to find way to appreciate simple, traditional patterns rather than trying to push for something new. Work on improving trouble areas instead. You might feel caged in, limited, or restricted by others right now, but it’s also a good time for being “in the know”, which is ultimately empowering. A responsibility to or with a partner can be part of the picture now. You’re more able to accept things for what they are, and you may be facing realities about relationships, or experiencing a demand from a significant other. A Sun-Chiron sextile this morning points to a chance to improve a relationship with a boss, parent, or someone in a position of authority. You may be assuming a leadership role in an important area of your life.

Cancer

This morning, you may be getting somewhere with a partner, dear Cancer, particularly related to sharing your goals, ideas, and beliefs. You might learn something new about what someone important to you believes, and while there can be differences that are surprising, you can most certainly learn from them. On the job, show your reliable side. You could be gaining respect for the services you provide or for your responsible attitude. You may have to face a reality regarding a work or health matter, or you could be feeling overburdened or stretched to the limit. However, this is also a time for getting your expectations to a realistic place, and this allows you to better plan your next move. Circumstances occurring now are clearing the way towards more capability in work, health, chores, and routines. Love matters can also strike a serious tone today. While you could feel pressured to make a decision, with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, today is best approached as a time to put something behind you rather than the start of something brand new.

Leo

This morning can bring some important information to light, dear Leo, particularly related to work and research. You can feel better about yourself for accepting a limitation and moving on to something more deserving of your attention. Be as realistic as possible about what an important person in your life is capable of, as this can help you to trust them more. If you feel the weight of a responsibility now, consider what you are willing to work hard for, or whether the goal is worth the sacrifices. If you allow yourself to be realistic about what a person can or cannot do, feels or does not feel, then you can ultimately put more faith and trust in that person. Loyalty and reliability are qualities that are most important to express right now. A serious discussion or revelation can occur now, and although it can renew your focus, it can also bring quite a bit of dissatisfaction to light in a relationship, particularly a romantic one, or with a creative project. Even so, this is about moving forward – coming to a conclusion and going with it. The day’s energies favor deliberate moves and strategy. It’s not the time to jump into something that you haven’t given much thought to. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, and this can serve to shift your focus.

The morning’s events can stimulate the need to accept a situation, or person, for its limitations, dear Virgo, and this can be empowering. In fact, the whole day has a similar theme to it, as we are better off seeing something for its realities, allowing us to adjust our plans accordingly, which leads to a stronger sense of what we can and can’t accomplish. A responsibility or commitment to family might need your attention. While you may be feeling the weight of your responsibilities strongly now, there can be progress made on the home front, and if you are working at or on the home, you are more interested in applying yourself to something that will have value over the long-term. Work done now can be especially fruitful down the road, although brand new beginnings are best saved until after the New Moon that occurs tomorrow. Today is strong for identifying priorities, particularly surrounding affairs of the heart and family matters.

Libra

Today is strong for recognizing problem areas in your life, dear Libra, and making plans to deal with them. It’s empowering, although a little sobering at first. There may be a reality to face when it comes to a learning or communications endeavor. You might receive or give very practical advice and learn much in the process. Wisdom may be found in traditional methods, and you may be quite focused on finding solutions to long-standing problems. You might receive news of an important learning endeavor, or circumstances may be such that you need to become more organized and efficient with your work and daily life. Transportation or communications issues might change or require special attention. Limits or restrictions may be in order. This is a good time for seeing what areas of life need some slimming down in order to go forward a lighter, freer person.

Scorpio

Recent efforts towards restructuring and organizing your life can show signs of paying off today, dear Scorpio. You are exceptionally security-minded at this time, affording you the opportunity to see where you can slim down and eliminate excess in your life, particularly related to finances. This is a day for embracing practical realities, although you might also be facing the cost of extravagances. With self-control and focus, you can make real improvements to your life now and going forward. It’s a good time for taking a hard look at your finances, including any larger purchase you are considering making, with realism. For some of you, a demand or responsibility can emerge in a close partnership. You also have an eye for practical details and sight for situations and objects that will last over the long term. However, with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, it’s best to focus on purging and simplifying than on new commitments. Taking control of your life requires time and energy, and you are in a better position to see what you are willing to sacrifice in order to achieve your goals.

Sagittarius

With Venus and Saturn in alignment in your own sign today, dear Sagittarius, this is a time for seeing your capabilities realistically, instead of over- or under-estimating them, and this empowers you. With patience, this can improve your chances of success in whatever you set your mind on doing. Some of the tension you have been feeling of late can dissipate as you take a clearer look at things. There could also be an important revelation about your finances, a love relationship, or friendship. Be sure that you don’t assume more responsibility than you should, and while it’s appropriate to take responsibilities on, it’s not about taking on too much. With this Saturnine influence on your sign and Jupiter, your ruler, now retrograde, try not to take yourself too seriously now. A New Moon that occurs tomorrow is likely to shift your focus to building, producing, and acquiring.

Capricorn

This morning, good energy is with you for honing communications skills, dear Capricorn. Retrograde Mercury moves into your sign today as well, and this can prompt you to take a closer look at recent projects and your own personal goals in order to improve them. Later today, there may be a reality to face about a dream or fantasy you’ve been entertaining. As a result, you are in the position to know where you stand, making life a little more predictable. You do well with the grounding energy with us today. Personal responsibilities become clear. You can have a stronger understanding of where you stand and a sense of what comes next as a result. You have an eye for what really matters today, and are happier than usual to part with things that you don’t really need. This comes at a good time, as this is the day before a New Moon in your sign. It’s appropriate to focus on letting go of those things that are weighing you down so that you can better use the opportunities that a New Moon in your sign brings to start fresh and turn over a new leaf.

Aquarius

Aquarius

With Venus and Saturn aligning in your social sector today, dear Aquarius, you might enjoy coming to the aid of a friend, or following through on a promise. This sector also rules hopes, ideals, and networks. While there may be a reality to face, this is also a time for seeing things more clearly and getting a better sense of what is realizable and worthy of your time and attention. For some, social or romantic opportunities may be found through associates, group associations, friends, and networking. A question of accountability or commitment involving a friend or business goal can be in focus. Be careful that you are not allowing fears get in the way of healthy relations. The chance to improve skills or to learn a subject in a more formal way can emerge for some of you. You might also be learning important things about the past, and possibly discovering a talent or resource that you previously overlooked now.

Pisces

Pisces

This morning, pay special attention to your relationships with friends, dear Pisces, as friends have something special to reveal or show you. Today, a new responsibility can emerge, or the awareness of one! This can be a pleasant or beneficial one. A boss, parent, or teacher could be leaning on you, looking upon you favorably, or encouraging you to shine. There may be social or romantic opportunities through career and business connections for some of you now. Being conservative, realistic, discreet, and disciplined when it comes to business or public affairs is especially important today. While there may be sobering or serious circumstances today, they clear the path to move forward and to grow. Foundations laid down now can be very enduring. However, avoid beginning an entirely new project today – wait until after the New Moon tomorrow when new information and interests can come to light.
