Daily Horoscopes by The AstroTwins

Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Need to plump up your bottom line? Don’t wait for the phone to ring with a mega offer. Under a galvanizing angle between the Mercury in your creative fifth house and lucky and expansive Uranus in your financial sector, you could hit on an idea to use your talents to earn some bank. For example, can you use your writing, design or photography skills to launch a sideline freelance business? With a little hustle and muscle, you could bump yourself into the next income bracket!

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

People may line up for your sage words of wisdom today, Taurus, but be careful how seriously you take the role of “therapist.” With open-minded Mercury in a dynamic dance with communal Uranus in Taurus, friends, associates and relatives may come crawling out of the woodwork to vent to you and soak up your compassion and good advice. While it’s fine to offer a sympathetic ear and some generically helpful words, you really want to avoid getting embroiled in their problems! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You might feel like hiding out in your cave today—so don’t apologize! Even the outgoing Twin occasionally needs to lay low and recharge those social batteries. And today, as your ruler, breezy Mercurys in your communication corner squares amplifying Uranus in your restful twelfth house, superficial small talk might be the last thing you have energy for. You’ve earned the right to opt out of social engagements when you’re not feeling them. So no guilt for staying in tonight with a great book or to work on a craft project! See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If a friend or associate approaches you with a deal that’s “too good to pass up,” think long and hard before you bite. Of course, with your native Cancer conservatism, you probably won’t be tempted to risk your hard-earned stash on a half-baked proposal anyway. Today, as Mercury in your financial sector waves a warning flag at spontaneous Uranus, you’ll want to see hard evidence of anything before you even consider getting involved. You always trust the slow, steady—and reliable—way to prosper more than the prospect of making a quick buck. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Don’t follow the pack! Today, your not-so-secret weapon is listening to your heart and doing things your own eclectic way. Today, as quirky Mercury in your sign forms an activating angle with spontaneous Uranus in your career corner, you won’t be able to hold back your opinions. If people happen to agree, you can win some fierce supporters. Just dial it down enough so that you don’t inadvertently offend key decision makers or potentially valuable allies. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’d rather have peace than conflict, but under today’s provocative skies, you may have to confront a situation directly. A tense square between your ruler, analytical Mercury, in your subterranean twelfth house and changemaker Uranus will make things uncomfortable enough that you actually WANT to initiate what’s sure to be difficult dialogue. Once you get to the “what’s left to lose?” point, things can only go uphill from there. Discuss! See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t volunteer to take on too much today, Libra. You may have energy to burn, but you also have a heap of responsibilities that require your full attention. Before you wear yourself out, check what might be motivating this “overachieving” urge? While it COULD be rebellious Uranus, the disruptor planet is getting a flashing red light from analytical Mercury, warning you to set limits. Focus on your own projects, build in some downtime, and you’ll be amazed at how productive you’ll be. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Broaden your sphere of influence! If your inner circle is feeling a bit claustrophobic, reach out to a wider audience. Thanks to today’s charged meetup of Mercury in your career corner and experimental Uranus in your partnership zone, you could impress people without even trying, and team up FTW! Lean in to that Scorpio charm and chat people up individually. You won’t need to exaggerate your ideas or what you can bring to the table. Just let the facts speak for themselves. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your name is not Atlas, and you don’t have to shoulder the weight of the world, Sagittarius. Of course, with #nolimits Uranus in your sixth house of work and service, you may forget you have the power to say no. And today, the chaotic planet is sending a tense beam to the Mercury in your expansive ninth house. The message? See which of these “obligations” you can let go of without consequence. Since the sixth house also rules your health, lightening your workload can have a positive effect on your stress levels! See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your animal magnetism is off the charts today, Capricorn, so work that magic! With maximizer Uranus in your amorous fifth house, you’re a charm machine, and thanks to a hookup with flirty Mercury in your seductive, erotic eighth house, one-on-one interactions can go from mild to wild with one smoldering glance. People will be eating out of the palm of your hand: Get clear about what you want to draw in so you don’t have to deal with any messy clean-up jobs. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Lead with love today, Aquarius! A warm-and-fuzzy mashup of your co-ruler, spontaneous Uranus, in your sentimental sector and expressive Mercury in your partnership sphere can deepen connections with your inner circle. If you thought you couldn’t get any closer, see what happens if you try! Open up and share a story about yourself that lives in the vault. When people see that you have a vulnerable side too, they might be even more inclined to speak from THEIR hearts. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Got a message you’re dying to put out in the world? Today’s a perfect day! Free-spirited Uranus in your third house of communication is in cahoots with savvy Mercury in your sixth house of hustle and service. Stop working in a desert and let your talents blossom in front of a wider audience. Post on social media, send an update to everyone on your contact list, maybe boldly broadcast this to a few influencers in your field. The right word at the right time to the right person could be a game-changer! See the full week >
