The sun makes a challenging aspect to Saturn, forcing us to concentrate and find our focus if we want to achieve our goals. .
Today may bring conflict with loved ones, as each may be asserting their own needs without taking others into consideration. If it feels like everyone is getting at you, check in with yourself, as they may simply be reflecting your own emotions back at you. Try to work together and find a compromise which allows everyone to honor their individual needs.
Whilst you generally prefer to focus on your personal needs and what makes you comfortable and secure, today you may find yourself thinking bigger, and wondering how you can help others. This may mean working as part of a group, such as a charity, or simply working quietly in the background to do something that makes a difference.
Communication difficulties may hold you back today, with differences of opinion amongst your friends which can leave you feeling unsettled. Listen to your intuition and watch for body language which can help you to gauge what is really going on, beneath the surface. It's also worth looking within, to see if your emotions are affecting how you connect with people.
You may be feeling irritable or scattered today, especially later in the day when your work comes into focus. Make sure that you assert your own needs as well as looking after others, and express yourself as clearly as you can. Look beneath the surface to see what's really going on, and make sure that you are being honest and open with others.
You may feel held back today, not able to express yourself as flamboyantly as you'd like. It could be a relationship which leaves you feeling muted, or you may be feeling the need to consider your place in society and what your life purpose might be. Consider your inner authority and how you express it, as opposed to outer authority and imposing your opinions on others.
Your energies may be scattered today, especially if problems or a lack of communication in your close relationships are throwing you off balance. Often a disagreement about something routine masks a deeper problem, with one of you feeling insecure or held back in some way. Keep talking until you get to the bottom of it, as it will make your relationship stronger in the long run.
Today you could be feeling a need to assert yourself more strongly than usual, rather than agreeing with others for the sake of keeping the peace, as is often your habit. Try not to get drawn into an argument, but do stand your ground, as learning to express your individuality is a key part of your growing into your true self.
It's likely that you are feeling creative today, and the first part of the day is a good time for connecting to your imagination. As the day moves on, make sure any outstanding routine tasks are dealt with. Even the most mundane tasks can give you a sense of satisfaction and creative achievement when done with due attention.
You might be feeling held back today, especially early in the day when the duty to home and family may demand your attention. The later part of the day brings creative opportunities, although it's not a day for taking risks and big ideas. Instead, focus on building a sense of mastery of your chosen form, and on producing tangible results.
Whilst others may be feeling held back by your ruler Saturn's aspect to the sun today, you are likely to be comfortable and feeling focused. You may need to engage with your emotions more than you are used to, but you can use them to fuel your ambition and to drive you forward.
It's likely that the day starts with a focus on work, so draw on your inner as well as your outer resources to make progress and get over any obstacles. Later in the day you may be studying or learning something new, perhaps something which challenges you. Stick with it, as it can help you develop a mastery of your subject.
Your usual dreaminess may be brought up short today, especially in the latter part of the day when the moon moves out of your sign and on into Aries. Go with the flow whilst you can, and remember how water gets around obstacles. Rather than trying to push them out of the way, it flows around them, and with persistence, wears them down.
