Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
While there can be some reason to feel tense or on edge today, dear Aries, there is also incredible energy for letting go of tension as the day advances, and in the most pleasant of ways! Someone may be speaking highly of you, or has your back, and this can feel wonderful. Or, this can be a time when you’re choosing to put faith in a matter that you’ve been worrying or tense about in recent weeks. There can be pleasant surprises now. This is a good day for making some room for relaxing recreation, as it’s a time to refresh and rejuvenate yourself through activities you genuinely enjoy. If you need to forgive someone or be forgiven, today can provide the moment. It’s also a beautiful time for tapping into your intuition and applying it to practical matters or gaining inspiration from a dream or plan. There may be reasons to make peace with the past in some way. Emphasizing the non-material elements of a project can be a good idea now.
Your ruler, Venus, is in particularly good shape, dear Taurus, and this can have a soothing effect on you. You’d do well for yourself if you seek out activities that refresh your spirit and connections that inspire you. Your confident, calm demeanor helps you attract easygoing interactions. It’s a good day for love, friendship, and camaraderie. There can be attractions to different, unusual, or exotic people and things right now, and certainly to ideas and concepts that take you away from the routine, expected, and humdrum. There is a general desire for harmony that keeps people in better spirits than usual right now, and this suits you well. While you may have been feeling a little wound up, there is soothing energy that helps you decompress or detach yourself from recent worries and concerns. You may be released from a burden, or you feel lovely as you recognize new layers to a relationship or a person now.
You’re looking at the world a little differently today, and it benefits you greatly, dear Gemini. There can be special connections made, or new layers to discover in a relationship or person. This can be a time when you’re especially attracted to someone’s depth of character. Alternatively, you can find yourself pleasantly engrossed in a project, study, or pursuit. Venus is in harmony with Neptune, and there can be a magical quality to your feelings and relationships. The chance to repair a relationship might present itself under this warm, forgiving influence. It’s not a time for tackling the harder issues, but it’s suitable for bonding and reaching new levels of understanding with people you care about. Even if you are not clear in your direction, you are likely to feel confident that things will unfold naturally.
There can be good feelings on spiritual levels today, dear Cancer, after some possible tensions that come from outside demands. The key is increased faith that you’re headed in the right direction, even if it’s not clearly defined. You are carrying yourself in a worthy way, and this can attract more to you as Venus and Neptune connect harmoniously. You might experience a sense of growth or maturation in a relationship, or your experience and sensitivity attract people to you now. You are romantic, creative, gentle, and adaptable today, and you naturally express the subtler qualities of mysterious and dreamy Neptune. A philosophical conversation or new ideas can be illuminating and great fun now, or a partner may be generous with their time and energy.
While the Moon in your privacy sector all day does incline you to withdraw a little to regain your energy, dear Leo, today’s strengths are generous moods and spirited feelings, and these can benefit your relationships in beautiful ways. As well, a more relaxed approach to problem-solving can lead to new insight and unusual but useful solutions. There can be a nice feeling that you’re contributing something positive to the world today, and being of service or help to others can be particularly rewarding now. Your intuition increases for work, research, and health matters. This is a good time for letting things go and feeling better off for it. Sharing a load can be helpful now since you require a little extra downtime or perspective.
A Venus-Neptune aspect active today facilitates the expression of affection, compassion, and understanding, dear Virgo. An agreement might be made with a partner, or you could come to an understanding regarding past problems. It’s an active time for attracting positive people, feelings, and experiences into your life. This is also an excellent day for releasing tension and refreshing your spirit, perhaps through bringing a bit of romance into your life. Focusing on the positive, beautiful, and magical qualities of life can be therapeutic now. Gentleness and magnetizing things to you are more appropriate than hot pursuit with Venus and Neptune harmonizing. You’re in a pleasingly sociable and creative mood.
Your ruler, Venus, heads towards a positive aspect with Neptune today, dear Libra, and it’s a good time to open yourself up to learning from and through other. There can be good opportunities, feedback about, or rewards from your work, a health pursuit, or a particular project now. Your intuition for work, money matters, and business affairs gets a nice boost, too. Your desire for harmony, beauty, and balance is gently stimulated, and you’re likely to want to apply your strong artistic sense to make your home or work environment more comfortable and pleasing. Compassion and forgiveness are in great supply now. You can’t go back to the past to make changes, but you can choose to forgive and let go so that you’re better off in the present.
A Venus-Neptune aspect has a way of bringing out and spotlighting the beauty in your life and in your relationships, dear Scorpio, making it an excellent time for an interlude or for gaining some perspective. Aim to refresh yourself emotionally by choosing to see these things in a positive light. You are expressing yourself with warmth and a bit of mystery now, and this is likely to attract warm experiences into your life. It’s a good day for creative inspiration. A gentle, compassionate approach to the world around you works in your favor now. Soak in the positive energy, but do pay attention, as there can be helpful, encouraging news or information circulating that benefits you. It’s also a good time to benefit from favorable word of mouth. Your faith in yourself can reflect outward, magnetizing good things to you.
While there can be some minor tensions to deal with today, dear Sagittarius, sound energy is with you for appreciating and enjoying the finer things in your life. You enjoy nice opportunities for business and finances, which can benefit from extra flair and imagination now. A Venus-Neptune connection holding sway over the day stimulates a romantic or idealistic outlook. You may be recognizing different levels and dimensions of your needs for security and comfort that you might ignore, overlook, or miss on a busier day. Intuition runs high for business ideas, but the real beauty of the day lies in a stronger awareness of intangibles that contribute to a sense of satisfaction. It’s a good time for making peace with others, particularly through compassion and understanding. On another level, you’re in great shape for making important purchases or assessments about personal possessions.
Venus in your sign these days boosts your appeal, dear Capricorn, and its harmonious aspect with Neptune now adds a layer of mystery and romance to your manner that is very attractive indeed, perhaps in a more subtle or mysterious manner. Your more gentle and compassionate qualities are emphasized. Notice how peaceful, warm interactions with others enhance your mood and make life a whole lot more satisfying, and aim to help make more of your exchanges healthy and gently motivating in this manner. This is an excellent time to enjoy a refreshing retreat of sorts, if this is possible, since indulging yourself in some way can be tonic for your soul now. It’s a good time for drawing up plans for a writing, speaking, or learning project and for getting in touch with a special person in your life. You can benefit from sharing your ideas and inspiration now, and the feedback is good!
Today may present you with opportunities to relax or unwind emotionally, dear Aquarius, and letting go of frustrations and tensions can be therapeutic now. You see and appreciate the positive, beautiful, and magical side of people and situations as Venus in your hidden sector connects with Neptune, and this has the effect of softening rough edges and diffusing tense feelings. While the focus tends to be on emotional and spiritual levels of your life today, it can also be a good time for intuition on business and financial matters. Your dreams, visions, and intuition are even more powerful than usual in your life today. Your imagination is strong now, and if you can combine this with practical intelligence, you are in great shape. Your faith can help you attract good experiences to you.
Positive energies are with you today for forgiveness, personal attractiveness, and mending broken fences, dear Pisces. It’s a fine time to gain some perspective on a friendship or personal matter, and making a new friend or cementing a bond with a current one can figure strongly. That you don’t judge others is an especially appealing trait now–it’s magical, in fact. Aim to let go of negativity or tension and put it behind you. There can be a warm feeling of understanding between you and someone special. You may be feeling particularly generous now and more inclined to share your time with others.
