Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There can be much benefit from activities that connect you with your feelings and those you love and care about this week, dear Aries, with Venus harmonizing with the North Node. This influence can bring rewards through your interactions with family, health care workers, or counselors. Also today, a Sun-Jupiter trine is in play, helping to build up your faith. You’re exceptionally comfortable and at ease with others, and there can be some nice opportunities related to educational, travel, and other mind-expanding activities emerging. Reviving an old plan, project, or idea can be in focus now. It’s a beautiful time to publish or promote. There is a strong desire to distinguish yourself from others, to take the high road, and to do the right thing. You’re generous, and people seem to compliment or appreciate you more than usual. You are holding yourself well and getting your message across.
This is a beautiful time for connecting with people who are supportive and helpful, dear Taurus. You’ll find that diplomacy takes you far today as Venus and the North Node form a harmonious aspect in your social and communication sectors. Mutually beneficial relationships are in focus, and artistic and romantic endeavors are favored. You are attracted to–and drawing in–people with progressive ideas and attitudes right now. We’re heading toward a Sun-Jupiter trine that also acts to build faith and open minds. You might gain support from a surprising or hidden source. If you can manage it, this is a good time for a refreshing retreat or a quiet change of pace. Indulging yourself in some manner can be tonic for your soul now. This aspect may serve to open up an intimate relationship or the pipeline to your deeper self, and either way, you’re making deeper connections.
Today is favorable for paying stronger attention to the material side of your life, dear Gemini, especially for taking care of your business, money, and valuables. Connections with people related to business, government, and banks can be especially beneficial now. You might also be connecting well with current partners and friends, and bonding over shared fundamental values or business ideas. Also in play today is a Sun-Jupiter trine that helps build up your confidence in your relationships and projects. Your most creative inclinations come to the fore. Accepting new ideas, promoting current ones, reviving old interests, and exploring new subjects comes naturally today. Generosity is the key to social success right now–be open and generous with your time and help. Putting your faith in a person will not only boost their confidence but will also nurture and build the friendship and encourage that person to live up to your faith.

This week is strong for pursuing goals that contribute to a sense of growth and feelings of productivity, dear Cancer. There can be favorable connections made with others, particularly related to finances, legal affairs, publishing, and education, but this can also be about someone who encourages your independence and self-confidence. It’s also a great day for sharing something personal with someone special. Career matters can be especially fruitful now, and you may gain some inspiring feedback for what you do. A new opportunity might present itself on the lines of work or career, an old project is revived, or a project opens up and shows signs of moving forward. With Jupiter now retrograde, past projects may be more interesting and worthwhile than brand new ones. Expressing optimism, warmth, and generosity is helpful for maximum benefit from a Sun-Jupiter aspect occurring tomorrow morning. You’re likely to feel confident and on top of things.
