Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Venus begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Aries, where it will transit until September 9th. This transit boosts your ability to get along with others, negotiate, and collaborate, and it’s particularly beneficial for your one-to-one relationships and partnerships. It’s an excellent time for pairing up in some manner, seeking counseling or doing some of your own, making mutually beneficial deals, and enhancing or attracting a partnership. There seems to be more pleasure for you in twos these days! Today, the Sun forms a square to Jupiter, and with this energy, problems tend to come from overestimating our (or life’s) capabilities, overblown egos, or overblown expectations. You may be a little extravagant today, or a relationship matter may be misconstrued. With this influence, your eyes are open to areas of life that need improvement, and your best bet will be to get excited about making improvements.
Your sixth house rules your need to produce, serve, help, and perform, dear Taurus, and Venus begins its transit of this sector of your solar chart today. Venus, your ruler, will stay here until September 9th, and you have the chance to find (or rediscover) enjoyment and value in your daily routines, work, services, and self-care programs. This is not the best of Venus’ cycles simply because it puts Venus in the background of your solar chart, but is far from unpleasant. It can remind you of the pleasure you derive from your work and routines, and it can help improve your working relationships. It’s a good cycle during which to mix work and pleasure in some way. Today, a Sun-Jupiter square can play with your mood, however. Your expectations can leave you feeling vulnerable to mood swings if you’ve set them too high recently, primarily related to your relationships. Listen to what others are saying, but stay centered enough to communicate with your feelings. Do keep in mind that while people are prone to exaggeration today, in general, whatever they’re experiencing seems real to them.
Venus begins its trek through a fellow Air sign today, dear Gemini, harmonizing with your sign and earning you some easy, pleasant attention until September 9th. You have the power of attraction on your side more effortlessly than usual during this cycle. Your solar fifth house, where Venus is now transiting, rules self-expression, creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play, reinforcement, and even applause. You approach the world more creatively and romantically during this cycle, and it’s one of the best times of the year for enjoying hobbies, leisure activities, and romance. Today, routine seems to bring out the worst in you, however. There are times when routine comforts you, but today, it may remind you of your discontent. Or, you may be feeling overloaded as taking on too much in recent times is catching up with you. It may not be an ideal time for productivity, but stirrings you feel now may prompt you to make important changes.
Venus begins its transit of your solar fourth house today, dear Cancer. Through the course of this transit that lasts until September 9th, you may be particularly attached to your home or familiar settings and your memories. It’s a good cycle for decorating, hosting, entertaining, and family activities. Venus here can boost your relationships with loved ones, but also with your own heart, as you become more comfortable in your own skin and more aware of your needs. Today, it can be a challenge to feel as settled as you’d like to be, however. The tendency again today is to indulge if you’re not in touch with what’s bothering you. Instincts for financial matters may be out of step, making it a good idea to postpone big purchases. The temptation to borrow from the future is strong. You might also be a little unsure of someone’s feelings for you. This is a day in which emotions are up and down, and it’s best not to become swept away by promises.
Today until September 9th, Venus is transiting your solar third house, dear Leo, and you’re likely to enjoy your studies, mental interests, and connections more thoroughly. You might revive a personal interest or become drawn to a new one now. Studies, in general, go well, and you are more approachable or communicative. You are expressing yourself a little more cheerfully, and your curiosity gets a boost. Verbal rapport becomes even more important in your relationships than usual. Venus feels exceptionally comfortable here, and this transit is particularly helpful with Mercury retrograde until August 19th, as people recognize your warmth or intentions even if the words aren’t perfect. Today, it’s rather easy to feel restless or discontent as the Sun forms a square to Jupiter. If this aspect inspires you to take action, then it’s productive and supportive, but if it leaves you hanging and feeling listless, then you might want to remind yourself that what you have now is likely enough for the moment. If it isn’t, a plan of action is in order. You may be seeking freedom from restrictions and responsibilities, and this can make some waves. A long-term plan may need adjustments or expectations reined in now.
Venus enters your solar second house today, dear Virgo, and until September 9th, is boosting your powers of attraction related to money, gifts, favors, and valuables. Your appetite for luxurious or beautiful objects might increase, since building and collecting appeal to you more than usual. Greater diplomacy and artistic sense benefits business matters. You’re making the best of your resources! Today, it can be difficult to discipline yourself with a Sun-Jupiter square active. This influence can stir restlessness, which can lead to legitimate efforts to make improvements and bring about better conditions in your life if you harness this energy well. If not, this aspect can sometimes lead to wastefulness or random indulgences as an attempt to make ourselves feel better. This is a good time, though, to take stock of what you’ve accomplished and then figure out where adjustments may be needed, or perhaps where to change course. While expansion is the first thing on our minds today with Jupiter prominent, moderation in your approach will get you further, so think big, but when it comes to mapping plans out, be realistic with your expectations. Watch for exaggeration now.
With Venus, your ruler, entering your own sign today, dear Libra, you’re beginning a most beneficial cycle, lasting until September 9th. You radiate good energy and tend to attract positive attention and feedback during this period. You’re in the social spotlight. People tend to be acknowledging, valuing, and appreciating you more than usual. You’re likely to feel better about yourself and carry yourself well as a result. Typically during this cycle, you feel ready to make a move, statement, or announcement, but with Mercury retrograde until the 19th and Mars until the 27th, it may be better to wait things out. Try to see beyond the sensations of the moment to avoid excessive self-indulgence, and this can be particularly important today with the Sun square Jupiter. Today, recent excesses have a way of catching up with you. You may be feeling especially generous now, but overspending and even overstating could be a problem.
Venus moves into your solar twelfth house today, dear Scorpio, and will stick around here, behind the scenes, until September 9th. This brings the need or desire to review your feelings and affections as one cycle winds down in preparation for the new Venus cycle in September when Venus transits your sign. For now, you’re looking within and to the past for answers. There can be joy found in solitude, your private life, and your inner world now. You’re likely to take more time when it comes to drawing conclusions and making decisions about relationships and money, which is timely since Mercury and Mars are currently retrograde and new beginnings are not advisable. Pay special attention to your spiritual longings and needs now for best results. Today, the Sun and Jupiter challenge one another, and you could encounter blocks or resistance to your plans. Tension today can stem from a feeling of restlessness with rules and regulations. Errors made right now tend to be due to missing details or overshooting. Try to center yourself today, as the tendency is to scatter your attention and your energies. Avoiding exaggeration and arrogance will get you in an excellent position to enjoy the day.
Venus begins its pleasant, supportive transit of your solar sector of friendship and ideals today, dear Sagittarius, and will stick around here until September 9th. This transit encourages more warm energy in your dealings with others, as well as a kind and positive feeling about the future. Making plans, particularly related to happiness goals and connections with others, can be fun and satisfying during this cycle. It’s a good time for boosting and enhancing friendships, as well as making new connections. The desire for peace with others is strong, but you’re also on board for making changes that improve your relationships. The emphasis now is on community, happiness, and social issues. Today, however, your ruler, Jupiter, forms a square to the Sun and you could feel a little overwhelmed as many different things seem to stand in the way of doing what you want or need to do. Poor choices or mistakes made today tend to result from boredom or restlessness that distracts you from the tasks at hand. You might go overboard helping someone or doing things for others, and then find little time to attend to the rest of your life, for example. Get in better touch with your true desires before taking action today.
Venus moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Capricorn, and in many ways now and until September 9th, your heart is with your long-term goals. This transit can boost your charisma on public or professional levels. People may be speaking exceptionally well of what you do. For some, romantic opportunities come through business connections, and for others, a relationship may be a little more serious or goal-oriented. It’s generally a good time for forming or developing business relationships. Today, a Sun-Jupiter square can point to the need to adjust your plans or flaws of a venture become evident, requiring an adjustment of your expectations. You may be feeling like taking a risk today, likely because of a craving for more meaning or excitement in your life, but overshooting the mark is a strong possibility with Jupiter prominent and challenging. Do your best to prioritize or allow yourself some distance from a matter so that you can return to it refreshed and with more objectivity.
With Venus now transiting your solar ninth house, dear Aquarius, you’re likely to find yourself freer, more generous, or adventurous with expressing your affections in the weeks ahead. During this cycle that lasts until September 9th, you can especially enjoy learning and venturing beyond your usual routine, and you may very well make beneficial connections as you do! Intuition improves. You are attracted to others who share your open-mindedness, or who have an interesting perspective to offer you. Today, restlessness can either motivate you to make improvements, or lead you astray! This is due to a Sun-Jupiter square that has a way of showing us where we’re not meeting our expectations. Try not to let impulses rule, as they are unlikely to lead you down the right path. Of course, something good may come of your mood, especially if you avoid overdoing and instead conserve your energy. This way, you’ll have a better idea of your next step.
Venus moves into your solar eighth house today, dear Pisces, and will transit here until September 9th. This transit stimulates your urge to share in a harmonious manner with others, and on a more practical level, can be very favorable for money shared or coming to you from other sources than your personal income. It’s a time for regeneration, of processing recent events in your love life or new feelings, and of enjoying more focused or in-depth projects and relationships. In fact, feelings of love and attachment intensify during this cycle. Today, a Sun-Jupiter square can magnify any underlying feelings of dissatisfaction with the status quo. Or, you could feel overwhelmed with possibilities today so that you don’t know where to put your energies. When this happens, it’s a good idea to start with something small before working your way up to bigger things. There can be a temptation to overdo something in order to compensate, but this approach rarely solves problems.

Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
Today’s Emphasized Signs of the Zodiac
Agile, versatile, inquisitive, flowing, conversational, airy, many ideas. Can be volatile, superficial, changeable, restless and inconsistent.
Self-confident, generous, warm-hearted, powerful leader, dramatic. Can be overly proud, vain, extravagant, arrogant.
Today’s Elemental Balance
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.
Today’s Modal Balance
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.
The Fixed signs are: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. 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.
Today’s Lunar Phase
LUNAR PHASE: THIRD QUARTER
Moon from 90 to 45 degrees behind the Sun.
We have strong beliefs and are likely to put them into action. We have the wisdom to know when to act, but sometimes can be inflexible.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on August 6th:
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 the Moon 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 involving inner planets 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 lifetime).
