Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
While the Moon in your solar fourth house is an introspective transit, dear Aries, the chance to feel a little lighter or freer emerges today. A new method or opening can arise, or a burden leaves you. You’re open to a new and improved approach. Bright ideas regarding practical matters, work, or money can figure strongly. With Venus trine Uranus, letting go of fear can open up creativity and improve your health! Combining work and play comes naturally and works well for you. There can be an exciting find or purchase, or the excitement of redesigning or reorganizing things. You need a change of pace and monotony is uninspiring today. Taking a more relaxed and creative approach to your life leads to improvements and opportunities. Later today, if you feel unrest, aim to get in touch with what you want and desire.
The Moon spends another day in your communications sector, dear Taurus, stimulating your desire to learn, connect, and share. Your curiosity is encouraged even further by a Venus-Uranus trine today–you’re open to experimenting with feelings, longings, and ideas. As well, your willingness to detach yourself just enough to enjoy new experiences is quite attractive to others. You’re seeking out unusual or different pastimes, people, and pleasures. It’s a time for following your heart–you’re expressing your affections through your sense of fun and treating yourself to some extra time to express and enjoy yourself or create something unique. A new style or other updates to your appearance or approach to the world may be part of today’s explorations. A surprise attraction may be part of your day or a partner could bring a pleasant surprise into your life. It’s also a fine time to drop unhealthy expectations and aim instead to enjoy the moment.
With the Moon in your resources sector all day, you are seeking more predictability and comfort than usual, dear Gemini. Even so, there is a distinct part of you wants to do things differently. You’re likely to seek new experiences and feelings today as Venus and Uranus harmonize. A new way of approaching emotions, feelings, intimacy, and family or household matters can be successful now. You could be making purchases or design changes to your domestic world, and it’s refreshing. Detaching yourself just a little from a matter can help you break ground with a previously tricky topic. Emotional blocks are freed up. There can be a pleasant surprise. You’re more accepting of any unusual or new feelings you’re experiencing now. Be willing to break down barriers. Getting rid of clutter in your home can be especially helpful for improving your outlook, as you can feel lighter and freer.
The Moon in your sign today awakens your emotions and stimulates your senses, dear Cancer. As well, Venus and Uranus connect via a harmonious aspect, opening you up to new ideas, topics, and possibly even friendships. Mental stimulation and variety are themes. There may be a surprising new attraction, craving, or interest. Or, an unconventional idea motivates you. You may be pushing boundaries just a little in your conversations and interactions, and this can lead to interesting discoveries. It’s a great time for personal appeal on a mental level, or you’re taking much pleasure in learning something new. Later today, be a little more cautious about how you express yourself, as there is a tendency to make a controversy out of small misunderstandings. You may be better off outside of this kind of drama.
The Moon spends the day in the sign just behind yours, dear Leo. While there is a retiring quality to you as the lunar cycle winds down, there is excitement in the air. You’re likely to want to do (or feel) something out of the ordinary. You seem able to combine comfort with excitement successfully. You’re particularly willing to explore a new feeling, method, idea, or interest related to money, business, or work, although this theme can affect you on a personal level as well. A pleasant discovery or surprise can figure prominently. Your intuition regarding business and financial matters is excellent, and you might enjoy a great buy or find. New or updated methods can improve your life. You’re attracted to unusual solutions and things. Later today, you could be feeling a little testy if others are moving into your territory or pushing your limits. Manage stress through constructive channels if possible.
Venus in your sign is encouraging your confidence in what you have to offer the world, dear Virgo. Today, Venus harmonizes with Uranus, stimulating a freer, breezier attitude or outlook that can benefit you greatly. It’s a time for improvising and enjoying yourself, perhaps letting things flow and loosening up on a matter that has had you all wound up. Your desires can be unusual and different today, leading you along new paths. In many ways, this theme will stick with you for the month ahead. People admire your originality right now, particularly your intelligence, ideas, and beliefs. You might make connections that excite and delight you. Breaking out of your routine not only refreshes your mind, but it can also bring you new opportunities or lead you to new and innovative solutions and methods. Seek out ideas that inspire you.
A Venus-Uranus aspect today encourages you to break out of a pattern or rut, dear Libra. Because it affects your hidden sectors, this change or breakthrough may very well occur on an emotional level. It may be a time to release a burdensome secret or decide to let go of an attachment that has been dragging you down. You may not be feeling quite as attached to a matter, and this frees you up. It’s a good time for experimenting in a relationship. There may be a release from an old obligation that makes you feel a little lighter. A lot is going on behind the scenes or on the inside today. However, the Moon transits your public sector all day, and this can bring attention to you. You can be doing some juggling, but you’re happy to do it now.
Today’s Venus-Uranus influence tends to open your mind and heart to new possibilities, dear Scorpio. It’s nice to be able to detach yourself just a little from a matter from time to time. You may be getting rid of something you no longer need or merely turning the other cheek. Either way, it can be liberating. People can inspire you, and you seem to have a similar effect on someone. Love and friendship can bring pleasant surprises, or teaming up can bring rewards. Whether you’re enjoying new interactions or pouring new energy into a current connection, it’s a fine time for approaching people differently. This transit wants you to experiment, think (and feel) outside of the box, or lose some self-consciousness and enjoy yourself more thoroughly as you do. Later today, however, it can be easy to trigger frustrations, but this also allows you to see what needs purging.
The desire for a change in your routine is strong today, dear Sagittarius. A Venus-Uranus transit brings pleasant energy for social pleasures and inspiring interactions. There is a friendly, progressive, and detached theme that helps you see things in a new way. You may forget your troubles and enjoy yourself a little more than usual. A change of pace with your practical affairs, career, or health can be just what you need. You’re up for an adventure or new ideas, and possibly quite willing to change up your methods in the process. New opportunities can emerge. It’s a time for moving forward with less baggage, and your approach or attitude demands something different. There can be a pleasant boost in your reputation in some cases. Later today, you may be pushing for your own way. Watch for getting in the way of yourself.
A Venus-Uranus trine active today gives you a taste for something different, dear Capricorn, particularly when it comes to self-expression, personal enjoyment and entertainment, pleasures, and learning. You are more inclined to dream, imagine, and crave something different now. A break from the routine is recommended, not just today, but in the weeks ahead, as it helps your intuition kick in. Attractions and desires can be sudden and unusual. They may very well be temporary, but that doesn’t mean you can’t thoroughly enjoy them and take the experience forward with you. You want to do things a little differently, and this is most evident with self-expression, personal enjoyment and entertainment, pleasures, and learning. Creativity can blossom. It’s quite natural to let go of recent frustrations and pressures, and to move forward. Later today, aim to see vulnerable areas and learn from them. Frustrations can motivate you to go after what you truly want and need.
The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and these areas are in stronger emotional focus, dear Aquarius. Even so, you’re craving a bit more than the usual with a Venus-Uranus aspect active now. Energies may be lighter and freer, inspiring you to let go of patterns that are not doing you any favors or otherwise weighing you down. There can be pleasant changes on the home front, or a sudden desire to change up your immediate environment. A refreshing change of pace can figure strongly and pleasantly. You are attracted to unusual feelings, interests, and sensations. Your intuitive feelers are at work, and you might make some fascinating observations. Some detachment from the usual emotions or perspectives can be refreshing. Later today, you can have a strong desire to do things your way or to oversee a project rather than feel at others’ mercy. This can light a fire under you to get things done. Frustrations may motivate you to go after what you want and need.
A Venus-Uranus aspect active today encourages you to open up and enjoy yourself, dear Pisces. Communication channels present themselves, or you find new ways to connect. An unusual idea or method can lead to exciting discoveries, and perhaps some wonderful feelings. You’re especially attracted to communications or projects that are progressive, and fortunately, these are most favored today. Problem-solving is enhanced, especially when inspired by a friend or partner. Freedom and acceptance are vital themes in your relationships today. There can be pleasant surprises in your conversations, and you’re seeking something different. The Moon spends the day in your creativity sector, further reinforcing your attunement to the need to enjoy, create, and share.
