Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
You’re in excellent shape for handling practical affairs, making purchases, and drawing up plans, dear Aries, although it’s best to keep in mind that the Moon is Balsamic and brand new initiatives are best saved for next week. You could receive some helpful feedback for your work, or you might enjoy working on projects with long-term benefits. New insights about relationships or finances can be brilliant, and you might strategize your next step for securing a better position. You are making stronger financial and relationship decisions. Your interactions with others today tend to be intense but pleasant. You are especially insightful now, and you can uncover a resource or information that benefits you greatly. New energy is coming your way tomorrow in the form of a New Moon, and this can help renew your motivation and possibly turn your attention to new and exciting endeavors.
Venus in your sign harmonizes with Pluto today, dear Taurus, and is connecting well with Pluto. It’s a strong time for charm levels, but more importantly, for healing and positive reinforcement. It pays to look at things a little more deeply, doing a bit of investigating or researching, and thinking in terms of recycling or reworking what you already have. Your patience brings in good vibes and encouraging attention. Relationships are subtly enhanced. With this aspect occurring so close to tomorrow’s New Moon, its energies extend to the weeks ahead, and it’s an excellent influence for personal appeal and growth through your relationships and experiences. You are drawn to–or actively seek–new faces and places. This is a good time for bonding through the sharing of your visions and ideals. You are suddenly made aware of what, and who, you truly value. Today is the last full day of the Taurus New Moon cycle, making it a good time to review recent developments and to consider ways to improve your finances and sense of security, as these are strong areas of focus in the coming weeks.
With a harmonious aspect between Venus and Pluto today, dear Gemini, you’d do well to focus on something or someone special to you and give it more of your loving attention. Love itself is rich and complicated. Attractions are complex as well, and a secret love may reveal itself, or support comes when it’s needed most. This is a time for getting in touch with your inner world and benefiting from so doing. Today’s Balsamic Moon points all of us inward, as it’s a time to reflect and review rather than to push forward. But for you, it’s especially crucial that you take stock now, as tomorrow’s New Moon occurs in your sign. As with any new beginning, your attitude going into this cycle can help shape the period ahead. Today, consider what you’d like to make of yourself – your personality and how you project it to others – or improvements you want to make related to new initiatives and self-confidence.
Today’s harmonious link between Venus and Pluto can point to a nice boost in your life for mutual respect, understanding, and inner courage, dear Cancer. It’s a time for embracing the need to get into deeper touch with your more profound feelings, and for getting a stronger sense of what you value in yourself and others. When distracted, it can be challenging to discern between your concern for what others need and your own true, deep desires and needs, but now is an excellent time to cut through the fluff. Because this aspect is occurring so close to tomorrow’s New Moon, its influence is effectively extended several weeks, and you’re in great shape for personal appeal with friends, partners, or groups. You are a little more courageous about seeking out the people you value most.
With a Venus-Pluto aspect today, you’re inclined to pour your energy into the things you love, dear Leo. A sense of purpose comes forth, and your love for what you’re doing reflects well in your work. Higher-ups or the public are appreciative of your efforts, too, and it can be a time of advancement for some. It’s a super time for enhancing, developing, and repairing relationships with those you work with or for. It’s also a beautiful day for recognizing the essential details of a project or plan. With the New Moon occurring tomorrow, you’ll be moving in a new direction, and it’s more about your social life and happiness than it has been about your position, status, and professional life in recent weeks. The extra time you take for reflection can be helpful now. Under a Balsamic Moon, there can be a good feeling of letting go, surrendering to the unknown, and releasing recent negative attachments or attitudes.
With today’s Venus-Pluto harmonious link, dear Virgo, you’ll find it easier to see what in your life has long-term appeal and benefit. Relationships and feelings are more pleasantly intense than usual. This influence occurs so close to tomorrow’s New Moon that its impact will be felt for at least the next two weeks, and it points to a real hunger for creative or romantic experiences that touch you deeply and inspire you. Don’t be afraid to do something different creatively speaking and to reinvent yourself through expressing your love and enthusiasm more confidently. Some of you might enjoy a financial boost or a special gift now. Romantic possibilities are with you, and they may very well involve a person who is of a very different background than you or a long-lost friend. Today is good for reflecting on recent events in your life and for dreaming up career and business goals. The New Moon tomorrow is set to bring fresh energy to your career or professional life. You should be feeling strong, in charge, and especially responsible in the coming weeks.
Today’s Venus-Pluto link comes as a nice boost, dear Libra, as you can more clearly understand what and who is most important to you. If you need to strengthen a relationship, this is a good day for doing so. Because this aspect occurs so close to tomorrow’s New Moon, you’ll feel its effects in the weeks ahead, too. An opportunity might emerge to attract people who help you grow. It’s a good time for building strong alliances or securing a loan or other form of support. An intimate relationship can thrive now, or the relationship you have with yourself improves as you acknowledge and accept some of your deeper feelings. Researching, editing, or otherwise reviewing business, health, domestic, and financial matters can be quite successful now. The Moon is Balsamic today with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, so it’s best not to jump to action just yet. It’s a day for reflecting and for letting go of those things that can’t (or shouldn’t) be controlled.
You benefit from a Venus-Pluto harmonious aspect today, dear Scorpio, and because it’s linked to tomorrow’s New Moon, its effects should be felt not only today but in the coming weeks as well. Circumstances may be such that you feel more powerful, patient, and in control of your life. You are radiating positive energy that seems to attract the right people, resources, or situations to you. Relationship matters can do exceptionally well. People are drawn to you, and you might gain a greater understanding of an important person in your life. Negotiations can figure strongly and can very much go your way. With a Balsamic Moon today, it’s an important time to reflect, meditate, and tie up loose ends.
A Venus-Pluto harmonious aspect today encourages you to make changes and to grow through them, dear Sagittarius, mainly related to health, wellness, money, and business. It’s a fabulous time for recognizing what you value the most or what brings you the most joy. Making social connections through your work can figure strongly now. You enjoy supporting others, and this can lead to rewards. The day is perfect for releasing tension, letting go of grudges, and sharing your ideas. Nevertheless, with a Balsamic Moon today, you need to take a break from demanding situations and competitive energies. Reflecting about recent developments in work and health is especially appropriate now before a New Moon tomorrow.
Pluto in your sign harmonizes with Venus in your creativity and romance sector today, dear Capricorn, and your magnetism is strong and natural. This can be a time of healing and positive interactions with people that feed your good mood and sense of effectiveness. Expressing yourself creatively can attract positive responses. Because this aspect occurs close to tomorrow’s New Moon, its influence is stronger and more long-lasting. In the coming weeks, you might make plans that help you expand your creative reach or expand your horizons. New avenues for expressing yourself and for entertainment are likely to open up to you. It would be wise to think about goals you’d like to shoot for in the areas of work, self-care, and health, because a New Moon will occur tomorrow in the sector of your solar chart that rules these endeavors. This will bring new and robust energy to these areas of your life. Today is ideal for letting go of those things that you no longer need.
Today’s harmonious connection between Venus and Pluto points to fantastic opportunities to boost your personal or family life, dear Aquarius, and because it occurs so close to tomorrow’s New Moon, its effects should last over the coming weeks. It’s a time to enhance, build, and strengthen relationships with family or with yourself, and the key to success is to acknowledge and embrace your deeper feelings and attachments. The Moon is Balsamic today, suggesting that it’s time to let go rather than build up. This means it’s best to avoid sweeping decisions, launching new projects, and starting a relationship that you want to last. Signs point to the need to slow down, take stock, reflect, and release.
Today’s Venus-Pluto link may prompt a hearty, satisfying talk, dear Pisces, but nonverbal communication can figure strongly as well. Group settings seem to play up your appeal right now, perhaps as friends introduce you to new friends or through positive word of mouth. There is likely to be a comfortable level of intensity in your interactions. You could find that you not only enjoy company, but you’re appreciated for the unique things you bring to a friendship or group. Since the Moon is Balsamic today, it’s better to either conserve your energy as much as possible or invest energy in the moment. Tomorrow’s New Moon will provide you with steady energy for dealing with and taking charge of domestic matters.
