Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus is now moving through your communications sector, dear Aries, and will continue to do so until August 7th. Verbal rapport, cheeriness, and warm gestures are most appealing during its extended stay in this area of your solar chart. It’s a particularly useful cycle for those who need to do more of their relating through texts and messaging–this transit brings out your best side through these mediums. You enjoy sharing your interests, and you see great value in the exchange of ideas. Creative ways of communicating can enhance your connections. This transit subtly enhances your communication skills and might help you to attract desirable projects your way in the coming four months. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment encourages an unrushed pace. It can be a time of sudden and possibly golden ideas. What you hear or learn can stir up all sorts of feelings and spark important realizations.
TaurusYou are considerably more intuitive than usual today, dear Taurus, and psychic impressions are notable. Mercury aligns with Neptune in your social sector, sparking up some wonderful ideas or conversations about/with friends. Mental connections are in focus, and you can feel strongly moved by what you hear or learn. There can be some confusing elements in a friendship, but it may very well be that you don’t need to have all the answers. You prefer to see the best in people and situations right now, at least in your circle. It’s a good day to enjoy the moment rather than entering situations with complicated expectations. Helping someone, even with encouraging words, can be rewarding. Venus leaves your sign today, entering your resources sector for an extended stay (until August 7th). It’s a favorable cycle for getting in touch with your appreciation for people in your life, as well as for better understanding your money situation and needs. Comforting activities help you heal, and you’re especially drawn to activities that soothe you and boost your confidence. Attracting the right resources can come more naturally to you in the months ahead. Venus is your planetary ruler, and its transit here emphasizes your natural love of comfort, predictability, and material things.
GeminiVenus enters your sign today, where it will stay until August 7th, dear Gemini, launching a fabulous cycle for connecting with your powers of attraction. In the past few weeks with Venus in your privacy sector, feelings may have been kept private or at bay. Now, you’re standing out for your warmth, charm, and kindness. You may feel that you’re beginning a new cycle in love, or that you’re turning over a new leaf regarding self-expression. You’re also more inclined to want to enjoy and pamper yourself. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment is excellent for a good mix of intuition and reason. This can be a time of inspiration as you bring more creativity, color, and imagination to your goals or communications. Don’t be surprised if something you say today catches on, perhaps inspiring others.
CancerVenus begins its transit of the sign just behind yours today, dear Cancer. While Venus transits usually last 3-4 weeks, this one will last over four months, and because it precedes the booster transit of Venus in your sign, it can seem like a long wait ahead. However, it’s a good cycle for processing recent events and current feelings, lasting until August 7th. Benefits come from paying more attention to the hidden elements and patterns of your interactions. You can be looking at your life, feelings, and relationships in a new light during this cycle. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment is good for dreaming and visualizing what you want, and the practical side of things may need some attention later. Today is more about catching some inspiration or inspiring others with your perspective or kind words. You’re inclined to express your ideas with more flair.
LeoVenus moves into your ideals and friendship sector today, dear Leo, and will stay for longer than usual–until August 7th. It’s a strong cycle for making connections, such as through social platforms. You might derive more pleasure from belonging to a group or sharing what you know. Camaraderie is especially important in your life on many levels at this time, including in love relationships. Warmth, charm, and grace are themes with friends and networks. As well, your happiness goals, wishes, and dreams assume more importance. You can be a warm influence on others. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment helps build your faith in a relationship or your dreams. Your fantasy world is rich, although there is a chance your imagination can run ahead of itself. You gain tremendous insight into others’ motives and desires, even if they are doing their best to keep these things to themselves. Even so, wishful thinking may come into play and color judgment a little. The Moon spends the day in your own sign, and emotional needs seem more important than usual.
VirgoVenus begins its transit of your reputation and profession sector today, dear Virgo. Until August 7th, you have charming, friendly, and artistic Venus boosting business, career, and status or standing. It will be spending much longer than its usual 3-4 weeks in a sign because of an upcoming retrograde cycle, and this means you’ll be working on these things down the road. Your personality, concern, care, or artistry can be bigger contributing factors to your success and enjoyment. It’s a good time for publicity, but also for finding–or creating–more pleasure in setting goals and working towards them. With today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment, even though there can be something very much up in the air, you’re likely to accept the mystery. You might come to a happy agreement with someone, spoken or not. This can be a time of intriguing conversations or inspiring thoughts and fantasies, enhanced by letting your imagination loose. Today and tomorrow can be strengthening for a love relationship or creative partnership.
LibraVenus enters your solar ninth house today, dear Libra, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until August 7th. This can be a cycle in which you’re inspired by a topic, idea, or person. Someone may awaken in you a different perspective or way of thinking, and learning new things can be most pleasurable. Non-routine activities are most attractive to you during this cycle–you’re seeking something to do or learn that stirs you. It’s also a generally braver time for expressing your feelings. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment reminds you of the benefits and rewards of your work, efforts, and routines. Work can be fun if you are allowed some room for creativity. Helping others find the information they need can be satisfying today. This can be a day in which you make full use of your unique intelligence, insight, or creativity as you get the chance to apply these things. A frustrating problem can seem to iron out or sort itself out, and relief follows.
ScorpioVenus enters your solar eighth house today, dear Scorpio, for an extended stay (until August 7th). Intensity, passion, and emotional attachment are prominent themes in your love life during this trend. It’s a good time for attracting resources from outside sources or for working out money problems or power dynamics. This cycle favors a focus on the more intricate or complex side of your relationships or finances. While there can be ups and downs later in the cycle, you get plenty of opportunities to explore these themes. Approaching the trickier gray areas of life with more grace, charm, and understanding can help boost your life in key ways. Today, bonding with someone is likely to take place on a mental level. While it’s not a time for getting definite answers, there is so much activity, interest, and intrigue going on that you can’t help but enjoy yourself. Some uncertainty might even add to the appeal just for now. Healthy escapes can help refresh your thoughts, and interesting ideas can emerge.
SagittariusVenus transits your partnership sector until August 7th, dear Sagittarius. It’s a favorable cycle for attracting and improving close relationships, especially one-on-one connections. You seem to attract others who are helpful or kind, or you enjoy sharing your ideas and feelings with someone special, more so than usual. This period generally favors counseling, legal matters, partnerships, and negotiations. Today’s energies are good for cooperation. Something or someone can stir your imagination. You’re also likely to reminisce about the past and perhaps romanticize or glorify it a little. Leaving things open to interpretation is best now as Mercury meets Neptune. This can also be a time when a creative idea or realization comes to you, and it’s been a long time coming!
CapricornVenus enters your work and health sector today, dear Capricorn. During this cycle that lasts until August 7th (lengthy for a Venus transit), you can have an easier or more pleasant daily routine. Bringing more magic to your daily affairs can figure strongly in the coming four months. A personal touch can help improve your work or services. Communications and thoughts can be especially inspired today as Mercury and Neptune meet in your solar third house. With this transit, you may be able to sell your ideas more easily, and you might seek unique ways to express yourself. If you need to look at a problem from a different perspective, you’ll find it an excellent time for doing so. An idea that’s been a long time forming or on the tip of your tongue now blossoms. Conversations can be easy and even dreamy if your connection with someone is strong, and perhaps on the confusing side with someone with whom you don’t have that kind of understanding!
AquariusVenus enters your romance and pleasure sector today, dear Aquarius, and will continue to transit this part of your solar chart until August 7th. During this extended cycle, you’re more inclined to want to share your warmth and confidence with others, and even if this is only virtually during these challenging times, it manages to get through. Others appreciate you, more so than usual. You seem happiest when you have an engaging pastime ongoing during this period. Today is strong for taking an unusual approach to absorbing and sharing information. Mercury and Neptune meet, encouraging you to tap into your intuition and make it work for you. It’s not something that can be pushed, and you may very well need an easy, natural pace to get things to flow. You seem to have a way with the resources you already have that brings them to a like-new state.
Pisces]You’re beginning a cycle in which home improvement is a focus, dear Pisces, whether that involves physical enhancements or boosting your relationships with family. Venus enters your home and family sector today and will spend longer than usual there–over four months. Your personal life, peace, comfort, and safety assume far more importance at this time (until August 7th). It can be a great time for enjoying and exploring domestic activities, and particularly useful for those sheltering in place. You could enjoy creating a warm, friendly, and harmonious home environment. It’s a less visible period overall, and it’s quite important in the cycle of things for building your confidence and sense of security. Today’s Mercury-Neptune alignment in your sign suggests you’re leading the way with a calm, understanding approach. People are drawn to you and your words or ideas. A significant person in your life can be in agreement with you, or otherwise in your corner. You are picking up a lot from what’s going on around you, and people may be talking well of you. While this is a creative influence, it’s not particularly grounding, but tomorrow’s influences will help stabilize you.
