Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

It’s great to speak your truth and “do you,” Aries. But as Mercury retrograde flirts with your ruler, aggressive Mars, in your status-conscious tenth house, err on the side of formality. Ask yourself: Will you impress or alienate people? The office is definitely NOT the right place to “workshop” your rebellious side today. Your social media feeds might not be it either. If your message is likely to be misinterpreted by the public, then save it for another day. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Look alive, Taurus! Today’s connection between mental Mercury and driven Mars won’t let you drift off to la-la land. Information and inspiration could arrive at warp speed, and if you’re not on your game, you might miss important cues. Fend off the fog by eating light and healthy, getting fresh air and taking breaks to absorb all the information that’s being fast-pitched at you. If you can sneak in a power nap or a mini-meditation, all the better. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Is rivalry brewing? As forthright Mercury retrograde gets in cahoots with jealous Mars, a competitive vibe with a friend or colleague could reach a boiling point. Tread lightly: The other person could be feeling threatened and ready to go on the attack. Don’t take the bait. Go in with the goal of building bridges, not burning them. Heed the wise words of Martin Luther King, Jr., who said: “Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend.” See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Is it time to have “the talk” today? Stress has escalated in an important relationship, and you can’t keep tiptoeing around the problem. With Mercury retrograde in your high-minded ninth house, you’ll need to be the grownup. Rather than let anyone push your buttons, be firm and unflinching with your boundaries. Take a cue from dog trainers and adopt the “calm-assertive” tone: It’s been known to work with unruly humans! Instead of ping-ponging off each other’s anxiety, you’ll bring the drama down a notch or three. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Drowning in the details? Today’s connection between Mercury retrograde and aggro Mars could turn you into a total stress case. Remind yourself that the world won’t end if you email your client report an hour late (or whatever “small stuff” you’re sweating). And don’t even think about Googling the symptoms of a minor ache! If you have a million great ideas, jot them down, but don’t try to pursue them all at once. Rushing and multitasking will make you accident-prone today. That’s a strong argument for snapping yourself out of this wild-eyed state. Be here now, Leo. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Mixed signals abound as Mercury retrograde gets zapped by brash Mars in your expressive fifth house. And it’s not just other people throwing out confusing messages. You’re Fort Knox one second and an open book the next. You could confuse people by drawing them into your lair only to cast them out for making one wrong move. Expecting them to read your mind today, much less pick up on “obvious” hints, is an exercise in futility. Don’t assume anyone will “just know” how you’re feeling. Take the time to patiently explain. By the same token, beware playing psychic with someone in YOUR circle. If you want to know how they’re doing, don’t tell them—ask! See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Should you speak up when someone pushes your buttons, or is better to let it slide? Today’s connection between Mercury retrograde and hotheaded Mars could make it hard to hold back. A relative may be especially triggering. No surprise—after all, they know your sensitive spots. And since you’re well versed in theirs, it could be even harder to take the high road. Resist the temptation to clap back because your spicy insults could do permanent damage. If you can’t say anything nice, just walk away. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Come up for air, why don’t you, Scorpio? As Mercury retrograde competes for prime time with mile-a-minute Mars, it’s a wonder how anyone gets a word in edgewise today. When you have the floor, resist the temptation to tell every single detail of your story. Get to the point right away. If you find yourself cornered by an oversharer, you might have to be “rude” and interrupt. You don’t have all day here! Overall, make an effort to tune out distractions. Too much multitasking could lead to a careless error. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Don’t believe the old adage: There IS such a thing as bad publicity, Archer. Egos and attention-seeking behavior could run rampant today. And under a jarring connection between Mercury retrograde and uncouth Mars, over-the-top behavior will read as obnoxious, not entertaining. If a comment feels potentially off-color, do NOT throw caution to the wind and just say it. And should you find yourself on the receiving end of an insensitive remark, shut it down quickly. There’s a fine line between playful banter and hostility. You, like everyone else, deserve to be treated with respect. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Reminder, Capricorn: Sensitivity is a two-way street. As Mercury retrograde connects to brash Mars in your sign, you might not dish out the same white-glove treatment you expect to receive. If you’re catching attitude, take a look in the mirror: Have you been brusque and intolerant lately? Push yourself to give the benefit of the doubt. Maybe everyone (like you) is just doing their best. See what happens when you set aside judgment and view people through a compassionate lens. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Pause before you bring up THAT topic, Aquarius! Not only are the planets poorly aligned for communication, but you may have some simmering, unresolved anger. Better to work it through privately than with an innuendo-laden post or a snarky comment. With articulate Mercury retrograde in your second house of ethics, it might seem better to voice your discontent. But a ping from brash Mars in your passive-aggressive twelfth house could muddle your message. Blame and finger-pointing could escalate. Save this issue for another day, when you can have a more productive conversation. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Talking about feelings with insensitive friends can be awkward, and today it might even rouse anger. With tell-all Mercury retrograde getting pinged by Mars, buried resentment could bubble up. What’s really going on here? Maybe you’ve been giving a lot lately, and you’re annoyed that others aren’t reciprocating. Instead of getting mad, create a new way of divvying up responsibilities in the future (and um, stop grabbing the check). Before you assume you’re being taken for granted, let people know that you need some acknowledgment. Chances are you’ll get some glowing, even gushing, praise. No shame—we all need that shiny gold star from time to time! See the full week >
