Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Not so fast, Aries! Today, driven Mars, who’s been plowing through your sign since June 27, turns retrograde until November 13. This disruption could force you to hit pause on a passion project or highly ambitious mission that might be slightly above your pay grade. Trying to force or rush anything (including relationships) is a recipe for disappointment—or burnout. Use this hidden blessing to reconnect to your personal power. A forgotten passion could emerge again when you refocus on your own happiness. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Should you hit the brakes or gun your engines? Between now and November 13, you might feel like you’re driving through stop-start traffic as firebrand Mars retrogrades through your introspective and transitional twelfth house. Since things may not be what they seem under this backspin, be selective about who gets a full-access pass to your inner circle now, especially anyone who rebounds into your life from the past. On the plus side, Mars’ cooldown can create more space to make art, thumb through personal archives and “autumn” like it was a verb! What demanding missions can be tabled until the winter? Give yourself a break! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Squad goals, interrupted? Today, as motivator Mars turns retrograde in Aries and your eleventh house of groups and technology, there could be some shake-ups with your work team or another organization you belong to. But don’t blow that popsicle stand just yet, Gemini. While Mars is in reverse until November 13, you can iron out any wrinkles and, if necessary, scout out better-fitting collaborators who will help you soar. If you’ve grown a bit TOO addicted to your social network feeds, consider a short-term digital detox. Get out in nature, meditate, tune in to your higher mind. You’ll have plenty of new material to share when you’re ready to go back online. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Not so fast, Cancer! Today, driven Mars turns retrograde in Aries and your tenth house of career, which could throw a wrench into professional progress. There’s a silver lining to this forced slowdown, which lasts until November 13. For one thing, you might make it to the park a few times this autumn to appreciate the leaves instead of spending every day behind your desk. For another, you can actually improve the quality of your work as backtracking could reveal even better (and more economical!) methods for success. An authoritative colleague or relative may be a source of stress or contention. But don’t waste energy fighting. Better to agree to disagree and revisit the issue when Mars resumes forward motion in two months. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’re never at a loss for brilliant ideas, but how many of them can go the distance? Today, red-hot Mars turns retrograde in your visionary ninth house, cautioning you to look (and look again) before you leap into something time-consuming—and costly! Suddenly missions that had been zipping full steam ahead may come grinding to a halt, or you might realize they need to be rethought or scaled way back between now and November 13. Your nomadic nature could also go on hiatus. If you’re traveling or relocating this fall, don’t leave too much to chance. Plan out as many details as you can! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Too hot to handle? Lusty Mars turns retrograde in your erotic zone, pulling the emergency brake on anything that doesn’t hold out the promise of true intimacy. This forced slowdown, which lasts until November 13, brings hidden blessings. For one thing, you’ll have the time your analytical sign needs to figure out if this is really the right thing for you. Plus, waiting can build up heat! Long-attached couples have the opportunity to work through triggering issues neither of you was willing to broach in the past. But with fiery Mars off-course, plan on taking cooldown breaks in between talks. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Caution: power struggles ahead. Passionate Mars turns retrograde in Aries until November 13, which could turn a certain partnership into a battle of wills. You’ll need to stay extra vigilant in your key relationships since competition, envy and petty squabbling could bubble up out of nowhere. Don’t force consensus. It’s not always a good idea to compromise, Libra, especially if it means backing down on something YOU want and need. Keep an eye on new connections that take off like a rocket. Too fast a start could mean an equally quick burnout. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

If you want something done right, give it to a Scorpio. But what happens when you’ve taken on too many responsibilities? Today, as Mars (your co-ruler) turns retrograde in Aries and your sixth house of service, you’ll need to prioritize like never before. If passion projects keep getting pushed to the back burner, bow out of disruptive “obligations” and add more white space to your calendar so you can honor the creative process. Dialing down stress is a must for your well-being now. If your own assistants aren’t stepping up, you may have to replace them instead of offering yet another chance. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Yes, Archer, it IS possible to have too much of a good thing. Today, firebrand Mars turns retrograde in your hedonistic fifth house, putting the kibosh on overindulgence between now and November 13. While it may be hard to say no to that third margarita or to walk by a sample sale without dropping in to “browse,” delayed gratification builds character! You don’t have to totally deprive yourself of life’s finer things—just learn how to tame the impulsive urges that crop up in the face of temptation. Apply that to your romantic life too! Good things come to those who wait. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Chaotic Mars turns retrograde in Aries, demanding more domestic diligence between now and November 13. Maybe it’s time to try a meal-delivery service or hire professionals to give your home (and office) a deep-deep clean. Relationships with family members and roommates, particularly women, could become strained during this period. Your home might not be the peaceful oasis you crave, but if you can’t do anything about the occupants, work on things you can control. Play to your Capricorn strengths and tidy up, declutter and move some furniture or artwork to create a more peaceful flow. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

“Friend” is a term your sociable, open-minded sign uses loosely, but between now and November 13, draw a tighter boundary around your inner circle. Hotheaded Mars turns retrograde in Aries and your third house of communication and allies. Be careful about who you hand the keys to your queendom—not to mention your apartment—because a so-called ally could wind up snooping around and spilling tea. Until they’ve earned their loyalty points, keep them at arm’s length. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Want to have a leisurely autumn, Pisces? Be careful about what you commit to! Today, as unfettered Mars turns retrograde in Aries and your second house of work and finances, a pressure cooker of an assignment could land in your lap, leaving little room for other projects. Between now and November 13, make “less is more” your professional mantra…for sanity’s sake! Beam your considerable focus toward a mission that’s actually profitable. You WILL get this done—but you don’t have to burn out in the process. Maybe it’s time to set better boundaries with demanding clients or bosses. See the full week >
