Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, August 17th

 

Aries

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Saturn is on its last leg of the journey through your solar eighth house, dear Aries, and you have the chance in the coming weeks to take care of business and put tricky matters behind you. Financial matters should be a priority now, particularly if they’ve been causing you worry. Efforts to organize and minimize debt get powerful support now. Mid-September, Saturn will have left relationship houses, not to return for many years to come, and this can be a real load off for those Aries who have felt a pinch in this area. It certainly will help to have Saturn in harmonious angle to your sign from that time forward and for a couple of years. Today’s energies are good for work and health matters, and increasingly as you go forward, these areas of life can capture your interest and can in fact be areas of joy.

Taurus

Taurus

Things are really starting to move in the right direction for you, dear Taurus. With Saturn gaining a little speed now and on its final leg of its journey in your opposing sign, now is the time to really pick up your socks and tie up loose ends, particularly in areas that you may have neglected and with relationships. Mid-September will see Saturn move on from your partnership sector and out of its challenge to your sign. Of course, Saturn will continue to bring lessons to your life as it always does, but it will not be in such an in your face type of energy. Today can be fun, but it’s even better if you can apply structure and assign meaning to your pleasures, such as a creative pursuit. You’re feeling freer this week, particularly emotionally, even with your ruler retrograde for a while longer.

Gemini

Gemini

Saturn is finishing up its transit of your work, health, and daily routines sector, dear Gemini, and you’re now in a good position to firm up these areas of your life before Saturn moves on. A serious energy has permeated these areas of life, and now you are likely much clearer about where you stand on the work front, and ideally more responsible about your obligations to self-care and health. Your partnerships will come under Saturn’s scrutiny from mid-September forward. Today, sticking with familiar people and situations seems to come naturally. It’s a good time to get organized. There is a practical cleverness to you that draws others to you.

Cancer

Cancer

Saturn is finally nearing the end of its transit of your sector of romance, creativity, children, and hobbies, dear Cancer. This transit has brought a rather serious element to these areas of life for some time. It has also been a stabilizing force in your life, as you have been more aware of your responsibilities and more able to meet them. In mid-September, this influence lifts, and you might find that you can more fully benefit from Jupiter’s transit to your solar third house, which brings an opening up of opportunities to communicate easily and naturally, as well as a more positive outlook on your life in general. Today, you have both practicality and intuition working for you. This is a strong time for really applying yourself to creative projects, or for bringing a creative touch to your regular work or routines. This is also a good day for communicating effectively with a partner or good friend.

Leo

Leo

There has been considerable inner “re-working” going on in your life in recent years, dear Leo, as well as restructuring of home and family life for some of you. As this transit nears its end (Saturn leaves this sector in mid-September) you’ll have faced issues surrounding your attachments to the past, done some major “spring cleaning” inside and possibly more literally as well. Feelings of being alone or unsupported are subsiding, and you ideally feel more confident in your ability to take charge of your personal and domestic life. Today, you’re more aware of those things that ground you, make you feel secure, and keep you focused on the moment. It can be strong for enjoying what you already have and connecting with nature as well, but it’s also good for efforts to organize and tidy or otherwise simplify your life.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

The Moon continues to visit your sign until late afternoon, dear Virgo, and personal impact is strong. You’re also quite prepared to take care of business as the Moon is in favorable aspect with practical Saturn. Saturn has recently turned direct and is on its last leg of its journey through your communications sector, officially moving on in mid-September. This is a fine time for crystallizing the lessons that this long-term transit has provided and tying up loose ends, particularly related to communications and learning projects and endeavors. You can be working hard and enjoying the process. With a New Moon in your privacy sector just behind you, you are certainly still quite focused on your past and unrealized dreams, but you’re in an excellent position to get in touch with your innermost desires and needs that will help you shape the year to come – a powerful month and year are ahead of you.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Again today until late afternoon, you may feel as if the cosmos want you to keep a low profile just for now, dear Libra. Listen to any instincts to take it easy, as this is a natural period in the lunar cycle for you to slow down and catch your breath. In the coming year while Jupiter transits Virgo, you’ll find plenty of reasons to take time out, and benefits from doing so. In fact, you can come into wonderful touch with your intuition, making a new friend of it. The Moon enters your sign late afternoon, and you can begin to crave more interaction and feedback from the world. Today is good for sorting things out, and especially so on practical levels. In fact, you can find the next several weeks, until mid-September, very powerful for taking care of loose ends on a financial level.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

With Saturn finishing up its transit of your sign, dear Scorpio, use this time in your life to firm up self-care programs and other important structures. Mid-September will see Saturn leave your sign this time for good (for another twenty-six years). Saturn has been in your sign and putting your personality through a series of “tests” for a couple years now. Since it’s now the last leg of its journey, the rewards are more likely to surface. You are becoming stronger and more self-reliant, more mature and capable of handling anything that comes your way. Your personal goals are more realistic. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality as well as your inner strength. Today is good for feeling directed after a period of being somewhat in the dark. Motivation builds as you have a stronger sense of where you’re heading.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Saturn is nearing the end of its lengthy journey in your soul sector, dear Sagittarius, and in this last leg, there can be some deep, inner questioning and changes in conditioned and deeply ingrained attitudes. Your values are changing and some of the ideals you’ve held onto in the past lose their flavor along with the changes. This may be at the root of any vague feelings of discouragement experienced now. You need to search deep within yourself for peace and security. You have the chance to take care of outstanding problems and loose emotional ends so that going forward with Saturn moving back into your sign in mid-September, you can use this transit to better advantage, to empower yourself. The coming weeks are powerful for cutting out problem areas of your life and ridding yourself of unhealthy attachments. Today’s energy is strong for work, organization, and practical solutions to problems.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Saturn has influenced your sector of friendships, networking, business income, and goal-setting for some time, dear Capricorn, and is finally on its last leg of its journey in this area of your solar chart. There have been some realities to face, tests, challenges, and paring down in these areas of your life. Saturn will officially move on in just one month’s time. This gives you the opportunity over the coming weeks to process and crystallize some of the lessons you’ve learned about the groups you align with, friends, and “happiness” goals. Restrictions will begin to lift, and the rewards of this transit can become more apparent. Today is strong for feeling directed, motivated, and organized. Relationships feel a little stronger.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Saturn finalizes its transit of your professional sector in the coming month, dear Aquarius. You’re coming to the end of this transit that has forced you to take stock of your position in society, your career, responsibilities, or reputation. New responsibilities have emerged, but you’ve also reaped the rewards of past long-term efforts. This has been one of the most public periods of your life, when others have been more aware of your accomplishments and possibly of your “failures” as well. A career or educational program may have begun or completed. There are four weeks left of this transit, making it a good time to process the lessons and attitude changes that have occurred, and to tie up any loose ends. Ideally, you have a stronger sense of responsibility and more realistic expectations of both yourself and others.

Pisces

Pisces

With the Moon in your opposing sign until late afternoon, dear Pisces, you are especially aware of others and your close relationships. Focus can be on the more positive and useful or practical side of your connections today. Energy is steady. Saturn is on its last leg of its journey through your solar ninth house and will enter your career sector in just one month’s time, when circumstances begin to push you towards taking stock of your ambitions and goals. Until then, you’ll have a chance to process recent experiences. Ideally, since this transit began in late 2012, you’ve been learning important skills and have a clearer understanding of your place in the world that will best prepare you for career assessment, changes, or redefinitions that are to come.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, June 25th

 

Aries 

Aries Horoscope
Aries

Until August 8th, Mars is transiting your solar fourth house, dear Aries. Mars is your ruler, and its transits are especially significant for you. The Sun is also in this same sector of home and family, so that there is a special focus on taking charge of domestic matters. This can be chaotic or turbulent at times, and very productive at other times! You can certainly work this position to your advantage by putting your energy into productive channels, such as decorating, organizing your home, going on outings with family, or actively working on problem areas in your personal life. You’re in a more self-protective and protective phase during this transit. Watch for a defensive manner, but do enjoy extra time spent on improving your home life. Today can be strong for dreaming up creative ideas for work or long-term projects and goals.

Taurus

Taurus

Mars is now transiting your solar third house, dear Taurus, and will stay in this sector of your chart until August 8th. This can be a busy, communicative time for you. Motivation to learn, connect, and pursue your mental interests is strong now. However, impatience can be a problem if you feel others are not keeping your quick pace. Your daily routines and communications tend to speed up. Impatience on the road and/or with speech should be watched. Otherwise, it’s a time of super-charged motivation to get busy. New interests and contacts can emerge now, or you can find renewed motivation to pursue subjects that have dropped off the radar. Today is good for getting back on track with your daily routines.

Gemini

Gemini

Mars has left your sign and is now transiting your solar second house, dear Gemini, until August 8th. This stimulates your desire to improve your lot in life. This influence can have different effects on different people. Some of you could be very impulsive when it comes to acquiring new things, or protective of your possessions. Others might be super-motivated to make more money. Some could experience clashes with others regarding values, and possibly money, during this cycle. This transit is strong for resourcefulness. You are more courageous about using your talents and making them work for you. Your instincts for building and developing current projects are reliable and strong. Today, the Moon moving through your sector of play can bring out your more expressive and affectionate qualities.

Cancer

Cancer

Mars is now transiting your sign, dear Cancer, and this brings a lot of energy to your personality. During this cycle that lasts until August 8th, you’ll have plenty of chances to assert yourself and seek out what you want from life. Mars is now supplying you with increased personal energy, initiative, and drive. Angry feelings might also be stimulated during this cycle, and you might want to watch for overly hasty, impulsive, or impatient behavior. Otherwise, you can use this period to heartily pursue personal goals. This can also be a time when work is more available to you. Today, however, there is an emotional need to stick with familiar situations and to seek out safe havens. You may be feeling a little more sensitive than usual.

Leo

Leo

Mars is now moving through your solar twelfth house, dear Leo, where it will transit until August 8th. Over the coming weeks, you’ll be reorganizing your goals and desires, perhaps questioning or second-guessing some of them before you gain clarity. Some of you will require more rest than usual, and more time to come to decisions. This is especially the case with the Sun also transiting the same sector (until July 22nd). This is a time for personal reflection, more rest, and some level of withdrawal from overly competitive or high-pressure situations as you recoup and regain strength for busier times to come. Honor this need, and you’ll do especially well. Let important people in your life know that you need a little more space. Today can be busy, as you’re in need of more than the usual mental stimulation.

Virgo

Virgo Symbol/Glyph
Virgo

Mars is now transiting your solar eleventh house, dear Virgo, where it will stay until August 8th. You have a stronger need for freedom of action, and you may feel less inhibited or restricted during this relatively flowing transit. You can experience more motivation to pursue your goals and dreams in concrete ways. When Mars is challenged during this period, there can be troubles with friends – those matters that have been brewing or held at bay now become pressing matters. However, if there is a need to clear the air, this is the time for doing so. Mars favors direct, straightforward approaches and has little patience for beating around the bush. You might come up with some very interesting plans for your future, and this process can be very enjoyable if not exciting. Overall, this is a good period for energy levels and social stimulation.

Libra

Libra Glyph-Symbol
Libra

Mars is now moving through your career and reputation sector, dear Libra, where it will transit until August 8th. This is one of the more ambitious transits. You’re more inclined to want to have things running your way. This transit can bring new energy and motivation to your professional life, but it can also stimulate conflict with bosses or parents in some cases. To avoid this, you will need to watch for a confrontational or defensive manner. On the other hand, if there is a real need to clear the air, you may have more courage to do so now. This transit stimulates your ambitions and/or your desire to be recognized for your accomplishments. Whether it’s professional or personal, you are likely to have an increased desire to get ahead. Because you are more inclined to take shortcuts, there can be some mistakes to contend with, but with patience, this can be a strong time for really getting things done. Today, the Moon is in your sign again, and emotional needs are clear, but possibly a little too urgent! Acknowledge feelings you’ve kept at bay, but don’t let them carry you away.

Scorpio

Scorpio Symbol Glyph
Scorpio

Mars is now transiting a fellow water sign, dear Scorpio, where it will stay until August 8th. This is a nice energy boost for you. You are really turning a corner now in terms of energy and confidence. This is excellent for natural energy and assertiveness as you are less likely now to step on others’ toes while pursuing your goals and interests. Energy levels tend to be even and smooth. You are especially enthusiastic and bolder than usual. Some restlessness and hunger for adventure can be experienced as you seek out new experiences. At the same time, your hunger for learning can expand now. Essentially, you are looking to expand your activities, and you may find that you have a lot of energy for higher studies, travel, or all-new subjects. A negative potential is getting overly fired up over differences in points of view. The Moon is in your privacy sector all day, however, signaling a need to take things easy, rest, and reflect.

Sagittarius 

Sagittarius Glyph Symbol
Sagittarius

Mars is now transiting your solar eighth house, dear Sagittarius, where it will stay until August 8th. This brings increased energy to intimate matters – sometimes producing very favorable intense feelings, and other times stimulating conflict. Strife can occur with a partner about finances or other tricky topics during this cycle, but treat this airing of previously hidden problem areas as a chance to truly clear the air, and you’ll do very well. Your intimate world could become especially animated and active during this cycle. You may be putting a lot more energy into self-understanding or research now. You are more interested in making inner changes now, possibly because of conflicts that push you in this direction. A creative aspect between your ruler, Jupiter, and Pluto today stimulates your ability to see opportunities where you may not have seen them before.

Capricorn

Capricorn Symbol/Glyph
Capricorn

Until August 8th, Mars is transiting opposite your sign, dear Capricorn. This transit enlivens your relationships with others, sometimes stimulating conflicts. Some of you could be rushing into a new relationship or partnership during this cycle. Problem areas in your close relationships might be brought to your screaming attention, and this can be a good thing if you’re looking to clear the air; but this transit can also bring aggressive people or situations into your life if you are not paying close attention to your own need for stimulation and self-assertion. Relationships with others are lively now, and are best viewed as reflections of your own needs. With self-honesty and effort, this can be a strong period for bringing fresh energy into a relationship.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Mars is now moving through your solar sixth house, dear Aquarius, where it will transit until August 8th. This transit animates your daily routines. If you’ve been wanting to pursue better routines and programs for health and work, then this is the time when you are ready to take action. While it’s not the best cycle for expressing your desires naturally and confidently, it’s a good time for finding the motivation to work hard at projects that have been on the back burner, and/or to get moving on a health or self-care program. If you can, find ways to set your own pace in your work, as you can be impatient with co-workers during this period. However, you can be especially motivated to tackle problem areas of your life and to take on new projects and work. Today’s Moon transits your adventure sector, motivating you to find new ways to express your need to grow, improve, and learn.

Pisces

Pisces

Mars is now in your solar fifth house and in a fellow Water sign, dear Pisces, where it will transit until August 8th. This marks a turning of the corner for you. With Mars supporting you, you’re more confident, involved, and spirited. This transit brings smoother energy levels, and can also animate and energize your creative world as well as your romantic life. At times, you may feel over-stimulated in these areas, however! You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure, and you can be especially magnetic. Watch out for a tendency to take unnecessary risks. Otherwise, enjoy this time when your courage levels are boosted and you are more inclined to take a direct route to satisfying your desires.
