Things will heat up today when the red planet Mars squares off against airy Jupiter at 1:12 AM EST. You’re motivated to go after what you want, to take risks in the name of love, but at the risk of being reckless and impulsive. You will be provoked, but it’s not the right time to take offense—instead, be on the defense every time someone tries to poke and prod around your heart. Choose your battles carefully and you will emerge from this transit unscathed, and possibly better than before.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, your sensitivity in your romantic relationships is at an all-time high today, and you will get easily hurt by the tiniest inconveniences. You will need more attention from your partner than usual, if you’re in a relationship. However, you also know that this unquenchable thirst for attention is unhealthy, and you know you need to work on it—you just don’t know where to begin. There’s no better time than the present, Aries. It’s never too late to begin your journey toward self-improvement.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, chances for new romance will come knocking at your door today, but you’re too comfortable to get up and open it. You’re content with what you have right now regardless of your relationship status. However, there’s a fine line between contentment and complacency, Taurus. You love stability, but you will never get to where you need to go if you don’t let the wind blow your sails.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You like saying what you feel, Gemini, but today you must be careful not to be more brutal than honest and risk hurting the feelings of the people you love. Honesty is an important value, but it’s important for you to learn that it’s just as important to be honest at the right time and place. If your partner is excited about a new hobby that you’re not really interested in, it’s better for you to entertain their enthusiasm first rather than just dismissing them.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You’re re-evaluating your values today, Cancer, and you might come to a realization that you’ve outgrown your friends, and maybe even your romantic partner, if you’re committed. You will try to adjust and compromise yourself just so you can keep them in your life, but at some point, you will have to let them go in order to allow yourself some room for growth. You’re not meant to force yourself to fit into clothes you’ve outgrown, Cancer—if they don’t fit you anymore, perhaps it’s time to find some new ones.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, you’re known for courageously chasing after your dreams and goals, and today the universe blesses this attitude as your grit and productivity brings you success. You will be drawn toward romantic partners who are in powerful positions, but don’t let this desire hold you back from finding true love. If you want to be loved for who you are, don’t date out of status. However, in order for you to find someone you’re compatible with, you must also find a person who matches your energy.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You don’t usually like change, Virgo, but today your mind is open for new possibilities as you go about your journey to self-development. Your subconscious patterns might emerge which will help you make sense of the reasons behind mistakes you’ve made in past relationships. It can make you feel frustrated at yourself, but don’t beat yourself up for being beholden to toxic patterns you’ve developed from childhood. Take this opportunity instead to change yourself for the better so you can make better decisions in the future.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, the social butterfly in you is awakened today, and you will be drawn to spend more time around other people. If you’re single, you will be driven to meet people who share the same interests and values. When challenges arise between you and romantic partners, you try to meet a compromise, as usual—but this time, you will wonder if you’re giving too much o.f yourself away just to resolve the conflict. Know that the problem is never really solved if you’ve given too much on your end, Libra. It can only lead to you feeling resentful that you’ve given too much without getting anything back.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, you’re putting yourself first today as you strive to turn your ambitions into reality. If you’ve been planning to commit to a relationship, today is the day to do it. However, you must be careful not to focus on yourself too much if you want to enter a romantic partnership. Relationships go both ways, and you must consider your partner in every step you take for the relationship to flourish. If you fail to do this, it can only end in heartbreak.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, you’re getting bored of your routines—you’re even starting to think you might be stuck in a rut. It makes you want to change your life today, in some way. You might want to get a different haircut, dye your hair, try a different style, or maybe even get into a new relationship. But before you make any drastic changes, ask yourself: is this the right thing to do right now? Don’t let your boredom drive you into making the wrong decisions, Sag. The result might not only be an unflattering haircut, because if you’re not careful, you will find yourself in the wrong arms, too.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, people have told you you’re too uptight, and you’ve heard enough. You want to learn how it feels to be fun-loving, too, so you welcome changes in your life with open arms today. You meet new people, and maybe even give romance a chance, even if you’ve never really believed in it. However, don’t let the excitement turn into outright irresponsibility, Cap. The goal is to have fun, but not to the point where you will put yourself in danger in the name of pleasure.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, you might not have had a very stable family life growing up, but as you grow older, you’ve learned to carefully build and curate a healthy chosen family that gives you the security you needed as a child. This can make you protective of your friends and romantic partners that they often find you bubble-wrapping their entire world to protect them from the world’s chaos, but you might drive them away with your overprotectiveness. You can’t insulate your loved ones from every single bad thing in the world, Aquarius—the best you can do is be there for them every time they find a bump in the road.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you usually like to spend time in solitude, but today, you’re unusually extroverted as you feel excitement to mingle with your friends and neighbors and meet new people. You will have positive experiences with other people, which will be good for you if you’re single. Even if you’re in a relationship, though, having good friends makes for a good support system outside of the relationship. This energy is partly caused by your ability to see the good in people, but don’t let it turn into naivety. Don’t let the wrong crowd exploit your kindness, Pisces. You’re too good to be taken advantage of.
