Early today the Moon passes over Saturn, always a sobering combination and in Sagittarius could bring up frustrations within limitations on the home or emotional front.
Ironically, later today we can find ourselves conjuring up some very bright ideas to change things. However, if feeling penned in remains the over-arching sense, perhaps it's time to look at making some fundemental changes. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Thursday 7th January 2016 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Keeping all the plates spinning may not be easy now or over coming days, so perhaps you shouldn't try, Aries. With important planetary aspects causing unexpected snags and delays, this is to be expected. However, if you do find something stumbling, see it as an opportunity to take a fresh look, and learn from. It could prove insightful.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
There's an electric quality sparking in the heavens as the Sun syncs with the restless vibe of Uranus, one which can reveal itself as a flash of insight or an intuitive impulse. This is encouraging you to follow your personal star rather than be a dedicated follower of fashion or trend. The bolder you are the more excitement you can generate.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
With Jupiter spinning backwards for four months from now, anything to do with the home, property, family or emotional issues cannot be taken for granted. Keep applying yourself though, for any hard work and effort you put in now will bear fruit eventually, even if slowly. Ironically, the slower things evolve the more long lasting they will be.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Venus's conjunction to Saturn in your lifestyle sector suggests that you could find someone a bit sore or tricky to deal with. Normal goodwill can be harder to access and the atmosphere more strained. Gentle exercise can be an excellent option though, as anything that gets your body moving might also eliminate any stuck emotions or frustrations.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
If extravagance regarding spending habits has taken hold, it's probably been the expansive vibe of Jupiter which since last August has encouraged you to give in to your desires. It spins backwards from today until early May, but this can be an opportunity to learn what is really worthwhile in your life, and not be so dominated by material strands.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Mercury, your guide planet now in retrograde motion, you may find yourself embracing some novel concepts. With Jupiter in your sign also starting a backwards dance from today, you might find yourself coming to something of a shuddering halt. But this combination also encourages you to think more about what really fulfils you.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Tensions may be inevitable at this time Libra, and indecisiveness about how to tackle these might only aggravate the situation. Even so, if you can accept that change is unavoidable, for us all, handling all this can soon become less challenging. At the same time, engaging in honest conversation could make the process much easier.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Much as you may dislike doing so, you might have to say no to someone close. And, the best way to go about this is to say it gently - and perhaps to suggest a small treat they'll enjoy by way of recompense. At the same time, following through with a plan that has deep personal significance for you may also be important. If so, certainly don't feel guilty.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Today's practical focus supports your efforts to get hard and fast things done, although this could change as the day moves on, when lunar ties to Jupiter and Uranus may divert your attention to more pleasure-seeking strands. However, someone close to you could decide to take an unwelcome interest in a key relationship of yours.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
As the Sun angles sharply with Uranus your natural conservatism can be challenged by a rebellious person you encounter or by your own desire to do as you wish, and when. So a challenge can come from outside of you or by your own restlessness or uncertainty. This may see some sparky scenes, for provoking a reaction can enliven you.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Although Mercury can give you a helpful advantage just now, despite its rewind, you'd be wise not to be too outspoken in situations where you need to fit into a structure. Your nervous system is going to be powerfully over-stimulated and you may be reluctant to keep your own counsel, especially around issues of perceived unfairness.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
As Jupiter turns retrograde from today in your sector of relationships it can also spark a period of preparation. If you and another have big plans, this is an opportunity to do the groundwork. Although not a very exciting phase of any project, it's still key. The more thorough your efforts now, the firmer your joint foundations can be.
