It’s a fiery day, today, as warrior Mars and sporadic Uranus link up in Aries.

Read the horoscopes for your rising, Sun, and Moon signs to figure out your happy medium between walking on eggshells and completely losing it.

(Jan. 20-Feb.18)

Your impatience around the time it takes for a thought or idea to become a real-life opportunity or project is through the roof, today. Whenever you get frustrated about it, remember that if you got everything you want right now, you would have nothing to look forward to and work towards. The struggle you’re in now will make the success that much sweeter. Be grateful for and committed to every step of your creative process. The excitement of actualization and achievement only lasts minutes, but the little triumphs to celebrate along the way are endless.

(Feb.19-March 20)

You may feel like you need to make some grandiose move to secure some part of your stability, today, but the opposite is true. Honor those urges by heeding their core message about what you want and what makes you feel safe and grounded. Anything that happens fast has the potential to burn out just as fast. Come to deep understanding about what’s keeping you afloat now and focus on extending your gratitude to those things instead of scrambling to find problems that aren’t there.

(March 21-April 19)

There couldn’t be a more explosive energy than a Mars-Uranus conjunction in your sign, today. This means you must get really clear about your intentions for the day, or it will be easy to derail your forward motion because of one misunderstanding or confrontation. Know not only what you want to do, but also what you will refuse to give your time or energy to and make these things known at every opportunity. The clearer you get, the easier it will be to stick to.

(April 20-May 20)

If your anxiety is high, today’s transits are part of the problem, but this kind of energy is about to move into your sign and stay there for a while, soon. Today is a gift; a chance to learn how to navigate these choppy waters before you’re thrown into them for a longer period of time. You’ve been teeter-tottering on the edge of ideas and decisions for long enough, Taurus. Today you will be pushed in and forced to swim and it will be the best thing for you. Concentrate and know that this is all part of your evolution.

(May 21-June 21)

The bureaucracy around whatever you are trying to get done may drive you up a wall, today, but that’s only if you put your focus there. Instead of stressing about what someone somewhere may or may not “approve” of or give you the “go ahead” for, concentrate on what you can do on your own. If there is a way around any red tape you’re coming up against, today would be the day you would be able to find and walk that road. You just have to remain calm and committed to seeing your visions through no matter what.

(June 22-July 22)

Being bored of your comfort zone does not mean taking a giant leap to the outside of it in one go, at least not for you and not today. The name of the game is always sustainability. How can you make some micro changes to the way you do things, to how you conduct yourself, or to what you spend your time doing that will make a big impact on your life but won’t completely frazzle you? Whatever your answers are to those questions, start there, today and embrace gradual process over extreme makeover.

(July 23-Aug. 22)

You may feel a lot of pressure to conform to other people’s ideals or values, today. Before you react to these pressures, try to understand where the feeling of need to listen within you is coming from, and address it. You are here, on this Earth, to pave your own path and figure out what configuration of past and present ways of being in the world resonate with you. If you can, seperate yourself from any people or places that feel oppressive to who you are and what you want, today, so that you can be fully present with what you want in each moment and let that lead you to where you should be.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Any games you’re playing lately around not giving some things your all but endlessly pouring yourself into other things will come to a head, today. You should only put your energy in people, projects, places,etc, that you can give your best to and you know you will get something replenishing and fulfilling in return from. Anything you do half-a** will give you the same kind of energetic results. Clean your life of things that feel half-hearted or strenuous to you and see how the road clears for the things you really want.

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’re tired of waiting on the people in your life to show up the way that you want them to, but today isn’t a good day to blow up about it. As much as you may hate this idea, the best thing you can do is live your life and let people meet you where you’re at when they’re there. There’s no need to make it easier for them or to keep talking about it. Stop “waiting” around and just live. The people who understand your greatness will find a way to demonstrate that.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If you’ve been meaning to completely revamp the way you conduct your day-to-day life to match the kind of lifestyle you actually want to be living, today is the day to implement some changes. The danger is that you try to overhaul too much or get stuck on being down about where your life is currently. Whatever you don’t like, you can always change; whether it’s through attitude or physical shifts. Focus on longevity and routines that will bring the most clarity, time, and opportunity into your life and the rest will fall into place.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It will be really easy for you to get excited about something, start it, and then gas out, today. The remedy to this is to stop focusing so much on the details of the outcome. Let the futurity of whatever you take on be full of exciting possibility instead of bogged down by the dread or stress of needing to “achieve” it. Having extra energy and ideas is great, just don’t put expectations on what they need to produce in order for them, today, or the project you use them on, to be “worth it.”

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A dramatic urge to change something that has been a defining characteristic or self-understanding pushes on you, today. Be willing to listen with open ears. Any antsy energy or frustration is a product of your resistance. Look around at your life and environment. What do you have within it that takes up space purely because you couldn’t “see yourself without it”? Those are the things to switch out or rid yourself of entirely. It’s a new year and about to be a new season. Ease into the shifts you need to make to evolve into a person you admire, starting today.
