Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThis can be a good time for laying down some rules, structures, schedules, and routines that help you feel organized and on top of things, dear Aries. Venus and Saturn are connecting well, suggesting you may very well enjoy the process! If you can manage it, putting things into order can be comforting, as it helps you focus on the things in your life that you can control. You’re in good shape for agreements, cooperation, teamwork, and putting in extra effort to strengthen a project or friendship/network. Someone or news might inspire you to pursue an idea or interest to your benefit. It can feel good to gain understanding and reinforcement, and it’s also a powerful time to extend these things toward others. Even if you’re limited to only words, they can be practical and supportive and very much appreciated. You can be valued for your contributions and dedication or work ethic. You might discover that you can be yourself and do your thing even as you follow some rules, and your work, communications, and studies can benefit greatly. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback.
TaurusWith your ruler, Venus, in harmony with steady, responsible Saturn today, dear Taurus, it’s a time for recognizing the need for some self-discipline, particularly with money or work. It favors thinking about priorities and even enjoying budgeting or planning ahead and making the most of what you have. It can be a time for reducing redundancies or otherwise simplifying your life and feeling better off for it, even if it means putting some goals or activities on hold. This can be an excellent time to see your means, resources, capabilities, and relationships in a more realistic light. You’re less interested in immediate gratification and more concerned about what benefits you and yours in the long term today. There can be traditional and wise information coming your way. Others may also turn to you for your trademark calming/healing energy. Patience brings rewards right now.
GeminiVenus has just moved into your sign, dear Gemini, and Saturn recently entered your spirit sector. Today, these planets form a harmonious aspect, helping you put recent ideas, views, and perspectives into practice. For some, it can be a time of favorable reviews, and not just empty raves, either–this is the kind of commentary that sticks around, benefiting you for some time to come. You might establish yourself with an audience or through advances in your field. Others are backing you up, and your sincerity is appreciated. For most, it’s about getting a solid feel of what you truly can handle, as well as what you can’t currently manage, making it easier to focus. This way, you take on no more and no fewer endeavors than you need. Balancing and moderating things makes good sense today. This is an excellent time to seriously consider what you most value and to prioritize accordingly. You’re becoming wiser and more aware of the impact of your choices.
CancerVenus has just moved into your privacy sector for an extended stay, dear Cancer, and your inner world draws you in. Today, Venus harmonizes with Saturn, and you could be particularly happy spending time with trusted friends, family, or yourself as you reorient, process, and get organized. Some level of solitude or privacy can be helpful and rewarding. This transit reminds you of the beauty of age and experience, and it encourages an appreciation of those things with long-term value. You might decide to give up a personal pleasure to gain something more significant to you in the long term. Coming to someone’s aid or support might figure strongly now. Diplomacy is most useful under this influence. If a relationship can do with some maintenance, this is a good time for showing you care. It’s also a fine time to get practical things done, as well as to draw upon hunches and intuition to forward business and money-related ideas. While merging and sharing with others can be complicated, today’s energies favor seeing the value of doing so fairly and cooperatively.
LeoToday’s energies support bonding in practical ways, dear Leo. You might notice that others’ sincerity comes shining through, and it’s just what you’ve been seeking. You seem to be able to cooperate with few demands on your time or resources as Venus and Saturn harmonize in your relationship sectors. You’re inclined to appreciate the simple things in your established relationships, and others are valuing your friendship or alliance. This transit seems to support clarity, diplomacy, reliability, and planning or commitment. Showing affection through practical gestures and the sharing of wisdom can be in focus and most welcome. Simply “being there” can be enough to strengthen a bond with someone, even if you’re not physically present! The Moon’s transit is shared between your and Virgo today, suggesting a very personal focus nevertheless. It’s a good time to check in with yourself and your needs. This way, you can bring a more whole “you” to your activities and relationships.
VirgoVenus and Saturn harmonize today, dear Virgo, promoting a practical approach to your life. Since Saturn has recently entered your work-and-health sector, this transit applies most to your routines, work, wellness efforts, and chores. You can feel quite valued in what you do today, or you’re striving to be more valuable with your efforts and services. This transit rewards conservative moves. Even informal agreements made around now seem to stick–we remember them, so it’s best to take things a little more seriously. You might enjoy putting in extra effort to support, supply, or produce today, even if it means temporarily giving up a more overt pleasure. Repurposing past ideas or products can be satisfying now. Conversations or information shared today can be imperfect or incomplete, but it’s a generally strong time for efforts to secure and stabilize. It’s more natural and easy to perform well, and shows of affection through simple gestures can be most welcome. There can be real benefits to considering others’ input or advice and healing rifts, particularly related to your work or business.
LibraWith Venus, your ruler, in harmony with Saturn today, dear Libra, you’re willing to give up immediate pleasures to support a long win, and this strategy works well for you now. It’s a strong aspect for making efforts to make your life feel more safe and structured. You might put a special effort into creating something unique or expressing yourself, adding important details, or getting technical aspects just right. Even if certain relationships have sometimes felt competitive recently, they now seem more supportive. It helps to look at a situation with more realism, patience, and objectivity. Aim to divide your time between work/chores and pleasure more effectively, since doing so makes everything a little less stressful. This can be a fine time for teaching and learning. Getting serious about a creative or educational pursuit brings wonderful rewards now and down the road. Sharing supportive or useful information can be satisfying today.
ScorpioSaturn’s recent move into your home and family sector asks you to build a stronger foundation and support system, dear Scorpio. Today, Venus harmonizes with Saturn, and you’re taking pleasure in the simple things. You might also enjoy activities that help you support, build, and secure your life in fundamental ways. You might perform your duties or fulfill your responsibilities with more purpose. For some, today is good for getting more comfortable with family or housemates, perhaps through bringing more structure and definition to your living arrangements. Your dedication is appreciated in turn. This aspect supports looking out for long-term benefits instead of focusing on quick pleasures, and this strategy works especially well right now. You’re prepared to enjoy people–and your current setup–for what they are rather than comparing them to an ideal. It’s a time for accepting some flaws–in situations, others, and yourself! Efforts invested in strengthening, maintaining, and building today can have long-lasting effects.
SagittariusWith Saturn transiting your communications sector, dear Sagittarius, you’re taking more care with what and how you communicate. While this transit will get a lot more time to play out in the years ahead, today’s Venus-Saturn transit can help demonstrate the benefits of taking your communications more seriously. This extends to your studies, personal interests, messages, and conversations. You see that your words have more impact than usual, and what you’re learning is meaningful. You might also get the chance to see people in your life or your relationships more realistically today, which is a valuable lesson. Instead of fighting this perspective, you’re feeling empowered by it. Healthy discussions about your expectations, limits, and boundaries can result, or you come to a better understanding of these things on your own. You are more graceful about accepting your responsibilities, and you don’t waste time on things that distract you from the task at hand. Doing what you think is right strengthens you now. Prioritizing comes more naturally to you today, both in your daily affairs and in your relationships. Your spirit for learning and improving is strong, and some of the motivation behind it can be a particular person in your life.
CapricornYour planetary ruler, Saturn, has recently left your sign, dear Capricorn, and has moved on to your resources sector. Saturn will indeed return to your sign in July to spend another five months in Capricorn before leaving more consistently, but for the time being, Saturn is encouraging you to sort out your money and things. It’s a valuable process, and today, a Venus-Saturn aspect helps you see the benefits of getting organized. There can be opportunities to strengthen a relationship or project with a mature, realistic approach and particular attention to detail. Defining something can be most helpful, as clarity is appreciated now. Paying attention to those things you can control can be comforting now. You have the patience to forgo a pleasure or comfort if it benefits others and your future self–it seems very well worth the effort. A bit of diplomacy can be most welcome and helpful now, both personally and professionally. You might take some pleasure in being practical or frugal, stretching the resources you have creatively. And, with Jupiter and Pluto aligning in your sign, you’re especially resourceful and dedicated.
AquariusVenus harmonizes with Saturn in your sign today, dear Aquarius, and others see your reliability and maturity as especially appealing. You’re drawn to people, projects, and pastimes that are tried and true, comforting, and secure right now. With Saturn aspects, it’s wise to humble yourself a little, as you can very much benefit from others’ good advice, experience, and wisdom. Similarly, seeing a situation more realistically can be informative and empowering now. It’s also a good day for loving attention to the technical/practical details of your plans or artistic pursuits and the logistics of a romantic relationship. It can be a fantastic time for recognizing the benefits of your organizing efforts or for putting something into order.
PiscesYou might take some pleasure in simplifying an area of your life today with Venus and Saturn in harmony, dear Pisces, particularly related to your inner world, home, or family life. It’s a great time for laying down some rules, structures, and goals that strengthen you and loved ones in fundamental ways, or for clearing up unfinished emotional business. Gestures that show others you care can be remembered and appreciated today–for a very long time, in fact, with Saturn in the picture! Even if physically apart, your sentiments can be powerful. Tangible efforts put forth toward securing your life, even in small ways, can pay off now. This transit helps you see the value of planning, stretching out the good things so they last longer, and exercising patience. Forgoing a pleasure now seems worth it if it’s practical and promises greater benefits later.
