Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Money and work matters have been shifting ever since disruptive Uranus bolted into Taurus last year on May 15. Starting today, the changes may subside a little as the side-spinning planet shifts into reverse, giving you five months to adjust to this new state of financial affairs. A sneak preview: The retrograde lasts until January 10, 2020, and then the celestial innovator will stay in Taurus until April 2026, heralding a creative new chapter for your finances and the way you make a living.

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

If you haven’t been able to get your timing right since changemaker Uranus blasted into your sign on May 15 last year, you’ll have a minute to step back and adapt. Today, the unpredictable planet turns retrograde until January 10, 2020, reversing through Taurus and your first house of self and identity. You may feel a bit adrift during this time, so instead of pushing ahead, do some deep reflecting on what you truly want, and research technology and trends. After that, you can begin the manifesting in earnest. Remember, you’ll host Uranus until April 2026, so be patient with the R+D process! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Relax, relate, retreat. Today marks the beginning of metaphysical Uranus’ annual five-month retrograde. Until January 10, 2020, the side-spinning planet will be on a silent retreat in your internal, intuitive twelfth house. For your own peace of mind, draw inward and see how much chaos you can cut out of your life (for now). The fewer taxing obligations on your plate, the more centered you’ll feel and the more self-nurturing you can do. All that reflection could yield creative breakthroughs, so keep a back channel open with the muse! See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your eyes might be opened to someone’s bad behavior when disruptor Uranus turns retrograde in your teamwork zone from today until January 10, 2020. Suddenly you’re seeing things as they are instead how you’d like them to be, and all the justifying and convincing yourself in the world won’t fog up the lens. Now the challenge is figuring out whether to say something and, if so, what. Suggestion: Don’t do anything dramatic. Maybe just wait it out and see which changes come down “from on high.” See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Professional savvy means knowing when to push forward, when to stay still, and when to go back to the drawing board. Today, when disruptive Uranus turns retrograde until January 10, 2020, you may need to do a fair bit of tweaking of your grand visions. But that’s okay: The point is getting this right and setting yourself up for the major changes that will come when the side-spinning planet returns to your career sector for the long haul (through April 2026) and you get to totally reinvent yourself.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Scaling back is not the same as giving up! Today, when chaotic Uranus goes retrograde in Taurus and your visionary ninth house until January 10, 2020, you might realize that it’s necessary to downshift a plan that involved globe-trotting, publishing or an entrepreneurial initiative. While you may learn a few unsavory things, isn’t it better to know than to remain in the dark? While no one’s saying you can’t take a vacation, your REALLY big travel and expansion plans will move full steam ahead when Uranus resumes forward motion in Taurus and your adventurous ninth house until April 2026.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Rolling in the deep? Life could get surreal today as renegade Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus and your eighth house of intimacy, sexuality and intense emotions. Uranus first bolted into this realm on May 15 last year, giving you a taste of what’s to come between now and April 2026. But this five-month retrograde period may inspire some deep reflection, especially around relationships. Everything from how (and why) you bond with people to the way you invest your money is up for review. Don’t rush through it: You’re laying the tracks for a whole new approach to your most important connections. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Relationships probably won’t stay the same over the coming months as disruptor Uranus turns retrograde until January 10, 2020, spending the next five months in Taurus and your partnership realm. No more burying your head in the sand: If you’ve been secretly wishing for “something” to shake up a key union, you might be waiting for a long time. Instead, do or say something that actually moves the needle. While it may not be easy to get to the root of things, bringing them out into the open can lead to a necessary (and desired) correction. Roll up your sleeves and get down to business.See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Today, wrench-throwing Uranus takes aim at your sixth house of career, systems and wellness as it begins a five-month retrograde that will shake up your everyday life and routines. While this reversal could initially cause you to stress, it’s actually a blessed chance to stop powering forward in cruise control and revamp some things that need attention, like your work-life balance, say? By the time the side-spinning planet resumes direction motion on January 10, 2020, you could be whirring away productively with a new system… without skipping lunch or yoga! Hello to a workflow that actually works! See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your love life might start flashing “404 Redirect” today as disruptive Uranus kicks off its annual five-month retrograde, this time in your fifth house of amour and glamour. A relationship could go a bit sideways, or you may just feel off your game during this pivot. What’s a self-respecting Capricorn to do? Draw inward, think about what you really want in a partnership (and whether you have it)…and while you’re practicing the Law of Attraction, throw yourself into a creative project—a perfect distraction until January 10, 2020, when Uranus resumes forward motion.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

If your home is anything less than a serene, supportive sanctuary, now’s the time to start making some wholesale changes. Today, your revolutionary co-ruler, Uranus, turns retrograde until January 10, 2020, backtracking through Taurus and your domestic zone. By New Year’s, your living situation could be radically different. Take your time, do things the way YOU want them, and then set some really big goals for the coming several years, especially when it comes to where you’re putting down roots—and with whom!

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Say what, Pisces? From a meme to a cryptic text message, you won’t want to leave anything open to interpretation over the coming five months as chaotic Uranus turns retrograde in Taurus and your third house of communication. Verbalizing is only the tip of your iceberg, and over the coming several months, you might go even more subterranean. But while you do, take time to craft your message, whether words, music or art. By the time the side-spinning planet resumes forward motion on January 10, 2020, you may emerge with a whole new way of expressing yourself! See the full week >
