Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Slow and steady wins the race today, Aries. The moon in your security-seeking second house forms a helpful trine to potent Pluto, encouraging you to go deeper and create a solid structure. If you want to grab the brass ring, you need to follow due process. Although your impatient streak may balk at the thought of backtracking, you have to return to 101 basics and follow the proverbial playbook. No cutting corners or skipping steps—not if you want to earn your seat in the master class.
Has your bull’s-eye morphed into a moving target, Aries? Slow down and redefine your goals if you want to hit your mark. Ambitious Saturn turns retrograde in your career zone until September 6, stalling professional plans. As frustrating as this influence can be, Saturn's backspin will help you streamline and find the perfect path-—one paved with quality and integrity. You’ll be thankful when all is said and done. While progress may come in the babiest of steps, have faith in divine timing. A former colleague may resurface and breathe new life into your project. Just heed the number one rule of this transit: no shortcuts allowed!
You say you want a revolution? Your request might be granted today, Aries—but be careful what you wish for! The winds of change are at gale-force levels as the Sun and unpredictable Uranus hold their annual summit meeting in Aries and your first house of identity. You’re not one to suppress your own needs on a regular basis, but what have you been keeping at a simmer on the back burner? That’s the thing to turn the heat up on, Ram. Don’t be afraid to be a little outrageous. You could create something truly iconic.
One more wish, Aries—and make it a good one! Birthday festivities end this evening as the Sun departs Aries and settles into Taurus and your second house of work and finances until May 20. Sweep up the corks and cake crumbs and get back down to business. All those tedious tasks you've been avoiding, like budgeting, bill-paying and scheduling, require your attention now. You don't have to accomplish everything at once, but do plan to get it all done before el Sol blazes into your social sector in four weeks.
Thar she blows? The moon in your sensitive fourth house forms a dicey square to rash Uranus, putting you at high risk for an explosion. If a relative or roommate pushes your buttons, you could easily overreact. Don't let impatience be your downfall. Friends and colleagues may question your incendiary—or downright erratic—ways. Alas, you could be too preoccupied with plotting your grand revolt to notice. Trust us, Aries: It’s best to sleep on everything before inciting dramatic change.
Saturday may get off to a languorous start as the moon loiters in Cancer and your cozy fourth house. If you can't crank it up to beast mode in time for brunch (or even that Saturday night rager), feel free to idle in neutral. Even your Type Double-A sign needs a little downtime now and then. Brew up a second latte, pick up that book you keep meaning to start, return a call or two. By the time Sunday's quarter moon in Leo lands in your expressive, creative fifth house, you'll be ready to rev up, dress up and have some serious fun. But your mind will also be on your future as the weekend winds down. Later Sunday, transformative Pluto turns retrograde in your professional sector until September 30, opening up a five-month window in which you can hit pause and reflect on your career trajectory. It's essential for your ardent sign to feel connected to what you do and to know that your efforts matter. This is your golden opportunity to make any necessary course corrections and get in good with industry movers and shakers. Having friends in high places is an excellent shortcut to the top!
