With charming Venus in your communications sector these days, Aries, you have a way with words, and today, this is pronounced. However, it’s about being open and honest rather than saccharine sweet. Good news may find its way to you, or you may be delivering it. Some of you could find new ways to get around or get in touch during this cycle, and improvements are especially appealing right now. You might be a little more courageous with your style or look, and you could do something you don’t typically feel free enough to do. Your independence is especially appealing to others today. Improvise, experiment, and express what you want.
Inventive solutions can be found today with your ruler, Venus, in harmony with change-maker Uranus, Taurus. Your sign is known for being possessive, but today your intuition is wonderful for what needs to go in order to usher in the good stuff. You might be considering, or discovering, hidden or unexpected sources for money and resources. You could also discover a surprising ally, or an interesting turnaround in a relationship. Personal magnetism is boosted with an open, spontaneous touch today. Others in your life will do their best for you if they give you a bit of space. Venus traits, including beauty and grace, are more natural for you and Libra, the other sign of the zodiac that Venus rules, and today, these are highlighted.
Positive, and possibly even adoring, attention is likely to come your way today, Gemini, and it can be a pleasant surprise or from a surprising source. Your own natural and unique traits are spotlighted and noticed. You do particularly well today in social situations. Mingling, networking, and connecting are all favored now. You have more enthusiasm and zest for life. While you may be expressing your feelings freely, you may not be getting very “deep”. Friendships can thrive now, and communications are mostly positive and uplifting. Even so, time alone, particularly studying or writing, can be beneficial today as well.
Beauty and delight can be found in unexpected places today, Cancer. While you are definitely keeping a lot of your feelings and affections to yourself, there is nevertheless a rather open and spirited manner to what you do share. In other words, even though you need some emotional space, you remain friendly. You tend to help, service, and support others, rather quietly and automatically right now, and you’re appreciated for it. You are seeing and enjoying the more hidden or subtle elements of your life, interactions, and emotions.
When the Moon is in your sign all day as it is today, Leo, I tend to say that you are more emotional than usual. However, emotions may not be any deeper or more powerful than they are on other days, but they feel more urgent, as if they’re begging for attention. There are many reasons to feel optimistic today. It’s a strong time for reaching out, meeting people, boosting friendships, presenting your ideas, or simply having a good, solid conversation that leads to great new ideas and even inspiration. Love and passion are also favored now with goddess of love, Venus, in good relationship with your partnership ruler, Uranus. As well, passionate Mars is parallel to Jupiter in your sign (and romance ruler in your chart). Mingle, connect, and keep an open mind to new approaches.
You’re making it very easy for others to respect you these days, Virgo. Today, this is emphasized, even with the Moon in your privacy sector and a tendency to withdraw. Authority figures, including bosses and parents, are likely to see you in a good light. Someone could support, sponsor, or otherwise endorse you today. It’s a strong day for experimenting with using positive phrases and affirmations that help retrain your mind to think more confidently. If you need work breaking through barriers of shyness or timidity, today is strong for this. You are more inclined to experiment and flirt with new ideas, concepts, and activities.
If a relationship needs a boost, Libra, today is an excellent time for injecting fresh energy and perhaps a bit of excitement or newness into interactions that have grown a little stale or too comfortable. People are drawn to your liveliness, charm, ideas, and wit today. Sharing ideas, philosophies, and beliefs can be mind-expanding and pleasant, especially as people around you seem to be quite open to new concepts. There can be more trust, understanding, and tolerance expressed between you and friends or partners. Doing something offbeat or simply different than the usual routine can be helpful.
You can experience a pleasant level of detachment today, Scorpio, which is a nice detour from the usual. It allows you just enough comfort and courage to more thoroughly enjoy yourself. It’s a good time for dealing with complicated matter. A partner could be bringing light into your life, possibly through a pleasant surprise. It’s easy to find support or backing if you need it. There can be a new, sudden, or otherwise unexpected attraction. Financial gains may come through unexpected sources as well. Activities with a partner can be invigorating and can stimulate an ambition or new idea for business or long-term security.
This is a strong time for allowing someone you love and trust to take the lead, to shine, and to express themselves, Sagittarius. Relationships that need boosting or a breath of new life can be enhanced today. Whether it’s giving or seeking advice, today’s energies seem to generate helpful information and open minds. It’s a good time to make peace with the past, as you are only looking forward right now. Your ruler, Jupiter, is parallel energetic, passionate, enterprising Mars, and you can be feeling all of these things. There is more enthusiasm, and your pioneering spirit is in full swing.
There is a subtle yet exciting sense that you are moving forward, particularly when it comes to relationships, Capricorn, and considerably more freedom and courage to try out new things and approaches. If you or a partner/friend need to get past something or move beyond a problem area, today brings good-spirited energy for doing so. We are seeing more reason to invite in the new and let go of outdated traditions or habits. You could iron out differences with someone, solve a problem around the home or having to do with work, and sharing new ideas with loved ones. Today, think in terms of what needs updating or upgrading, particularly in your personal or domestic life.
Today, you’re likely to be thinking in terms of updates and upgrades, Aquarius, and this can range from your electronics to your relationships to your mind. Love is fun and mental today. You are flirting with new ideas and approaches as well. The needs for affection and attention are stronger these days with Venus in your romantic solar fifth house. Today, you’re likely to attract these things through your words, wit, and ideas. There can be interesting serendipity going on today, particular related to love and friendship. If you’re making a break from the past right now, it’s a clean one. It’s also a good day for spending with family.
With Venus in your family and home sector these days, Pisces, you’ll do well for yourself if you make nice with family and improve your domestic life even in small ways. Today, these things come rather easily. If this involves breaking with the past in some manner, even in the form of decluttering or getting rid of burdens, you’re more likely to be able to do so. Think in terms of improvement, updates, and upgrades. Small improvements and efforts put forth to make changes on the home front and with family can have big results. As well, a change of pace can turn things around in a very positive way now.

Event: Tr-Tr Nep Qnx Jun
Description: Transiting Neptune Quincunx Transiting Juno
There may be slight changes in relationships that have us concerned or feeling out of sync, although these may very well be changes in our perceptions (we may see elements that we previously idealized in a partner in a less flattering light, for example). If we’ve been making too many sacrifices in a partnership, this can be an issue now.
Stable and enduring, strong values, unyielding, earthy, acquisitive, strong desires. Can be stuck, stubborn, overly possessive, self-indulgent.
Self-confident, generous, warm-hearted, powerful leader, dramatic. Can be overly proud, vain, extravagant, arrogant.
We are especially in touch with the physical world. We consider what we’ve learned and experienced in the past in order to make the most of the present. We can be cautious, practical, and possibly unimaginative. We are deliberate and can pace ourselves well. We need hands-on experience and are not impressed with theory as much as we are with results. Routines are tolerable and comforting.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
There may be some insensitivity or lack of empathy now. We may be out of touch with what we’re feeling or with our emotional needs. We may be tougher than usual now, and more inclined to follow mental or practical considerations than we are to listen to our intuition.
This is not a time that we tend to naturally initiate actions. We may be stronger at following up than starting anew. Survival mechanisms may be weaker now.
We are thinking about the long view, seeking out security and stability rather than change. We may be committed, focused, resistant to making changes, and stubborn.
LUNAR PHASE: FIRST QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 135 degrees ahead of the Sun.
We are motivated to take action, perhaps due to a clash, conflict, or stress, as we are more aware of problems and differences now. Plans are beginning to take off or turn a corner. We should watch for pushing too hard.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on April 26th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
