When the Sun shines its golden light toward the planet of passion, Mars, at 1:56 PM EST today, you will be overcome by great confidence and even greater courage. You don’t have to muster the courage to tell a crush how you feel, or to tell a romantic partner that you love them for the first time—it will come naturally, which will make your personal relationships bloom like they never did before. Today is not a day to sit still and let the hours pass. You must take the opportunity to go after what you want rather than letting it pass you by.
To learn how your sign can harness this energy today, read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you’ve never been faint-hearted, but today, you’re even more courageous than usual. You’re using your words to charm people into getting what you want, and your courage and charisma will reward your love life graciously. You will feel greater sensitivity in your romantic relationships, especially when problems arise. It’s a good day to talk about your relationship issues as you will be more articulate and confrontational.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, today you want nothing more than to run away from the hustle and bustle of the world and rest in the warm embrace of your lover. You don’t have the energy to go out and meet new people and have new experiences, or to make an effort to understand the thought processes of other people. Use the energy of today’s transit to organize your finances. Stability, both financially and emotionally, will relax you more than anything else.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini, self-love is the theme of your story today. Your confidence is boosted and you’re fearlessly chasing after what you want. Your radiant energy will make people turn heads as you walk by, which is a good thing to have if you’re single and looking for love. On the other hand, if you’re in a relationship, you will be honest with your partner and will be able to communicate what you need with ease. Be more honest than brutal with your brutal honesty, or you will risk hurting the people you love.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer, you don’t have it in you today to face the chaos of the outside world—you just want to retreat in the safety of your sacred, personal space. Instead of getting caught up in the world’s problems, you face your personal ones, and it’s not an easy feat. Confronting your issues will make you even more sensitive than usual, which can exhaust your energy. Don’t worry, Cancer. Being able to confront and evaluate your issues, in itself, is already an act of bravery that will certainly pay off in the end.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re unable to sit and stay still today as you’re overcome with the energy to meet new people and gain new experiences. Having a routine is good, but it’s also been boring you lately, so today, you chase after novelty. If you’re single, you will feel a desire to meet new potential partners, even if the goal is to simply date casually. However, your desire for something new might get you jumping from one thing to another without actually finishing your previous endeavors. Don’t run away from commitment in your pursuit of excitement, Leo. If you do, it will only damage you in the long run.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, you’re laser-focused on achieving your career-goals, but you will find yourself distracted as the issues you’ve buried deep beneath the surface emerge in the most unexpected moments. You will feel frustrated that your emotions are distracting you when you most need to focus, but don’t think of your issues as distractions. Instead, use this opportunity to learn more about yourself, your tendencies, and your patterns, which will help you solve your problems. Bottling up your feelings will only cause them to explode when you least expect them, Virgo. Instead of running away, have the courage to face and fix them, once and for all.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, what’s the meaning of life? No one really knows, and you find this mystery quite fascinating. As you ponder the reason behind our existence, you will feel attracted to romantic partners who share the same beliefs and values as yours. You will enjoy social events more than usual, as the prospect of meeting new people excites you, especially if you’re single. It’s a good day to spend with friends and loved ones, which will remind you why you love them. Listening to your intuition will draw you toward the right crowd, so don’t tune it out.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, today you’re taking your romantic life to the next level, whether it means looking for your twin flame or achieving important milestones with your significant other. Don’t let the challenges along the way hold you back from achieving these goals. You might find yourself disagreeing from time to time, but know that this is normal for you to reach a reasonable compromise. Even while in a relationship, you will feel the need for privacy, but don’t let this make you so secretive that you lose the trust of your partner and the people around you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, today your heart craves new experiences and adventures as you grow tired of the mundanity of routine. You will be able to meet halfway with your romantic partner and communicate your needs better, which can help you solve your relationship problems easily. Your relationship will bloom as you make new experiences together. If you’re single, it’s the perfect time to start dating, but don’t let your loneliness and desire for excitement drive you to the wrong person.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, something in your life has been leaving you dissatisfied, and for the longest time, you couldn’t quite put a finger on it—but today is the day you will finally figure it out. Use this opportunity to change what’s making you unhappy, unlearn your unhealthy patterns, and leave toxic beliefs behind. Who knows? This might finally push you to meet new people, which can help you find the one. Don’t let this energy to change make you impatient, however. Growth doesn’t happen overnight. Make sure not to let your impatience get in the way of your development.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, today you’re letting loose and allowing yourself to have fun in your romantic life, but if you’re committed, you might find yourself being held back by your partner’s need for attention. Don’t let this devolve into an unhealthy argument. Instead, try to harness the energy of today’s transit to meet halfway with your partner. Even if the desire is to have fun, your partner will remind you to enjoy life in moderation, as if they’re the yin to your yang. If you’re single, you will leave behind your fear of commitment, and you will be optimistic about the future of your love life.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your family has never been perfect, but today you’re learning more about how to have a good, stable family life. If you’re in a relationship, this can drive you to fix you and your partner’s issues in an attempt to build a healthier foundation. You know that having bad family experiences in the past is not your fault, but it’s your responsibility to build a better one for yourself. Challenges might emerge along the way, but don’t let this make you run away. Encountering these obstacles is normal, and you can jump through these hurdles while holding your partner’s hand.
