Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere’s a big focus on matters of the heart or of comfort today, dear Aries, more from an analytic perspective than an emotional one. You see past relationships and expectations in a different light, and this is a time for redefining what you now want and need from your connections and projects. You might learn something new that gives you a little more clarity on a matter that has confused or even haunted you. Further information can surface that shines a light on a past issue, or there can be a connection made with someone from your past. Either way, you can feel as if you’re starting fresh, but it’s important to note that there will be more to the story later. In a general sense, it’s a strong time for a resolution to put negative attitudes behind you so that you can begin to pursue your real heart’s desires. There can be a chance to redo a significant project or to return to a project or research that once seemed to be a lost cause. Instead, you could recognize a line of study, personal interest, or another “calling” that’s a better fit for you.
TaurusRetrograde Venus aligns with the Sun in your solar second house today, dear Taurus, and you might get a second chance or new look at a project, purchase, or relationship. The insight you gain now helps you begin anew and clears the slate for newly defined goals. You might find it easier than usual to let go of personal possessions or other attachments that are cluttering your life, both literally and figuratively speaking. Desires illuminate, and they can surprise you! A bit of detachment can help you understand what you truly value and need, and with this new information, you’re setting out on a new path. It’s probably not the best day for buying a high-priced item, but you may look at money matters from a new and helpful perspective. Turn your attention to things you already have and think about how you can rework or recycle them. With the Moon transiting your opposing sign all day, you’re in a better place than usual to see both sides of a situation. While this might point to indecision, you are also in the position to compromise, negotiate, and relate well. You may be acting as a mediator on an informal level, finding it both appealing and comforting to seek the middle ground.
GeminiThe Sun aligns with retrograde Venus in your sign today, dear Gemini. It’s a great time for setting up new goals, intentions, and resolutions, particularly related to matters of the heart, pleasure, and satisfaction. You’ve been seeing yourself, your relationships, and your experiences in a new light in recent weeks with Venus retrograde, and this new perception affects your path going forward. You may be redefining what you want and need from your relationships starting now. You have considerably more impact than usual today with your charm, personal manner, and appeal, even if you’re a little aloof or distant on an emotional level as you review and reflect. At the same time, there’s a distinct focus on the past, and it’s not about dwelling or getting stuck there. Instead, it’s for checking the rearview mirror and making better choices for yourself going forward. Others crave the very qualities that you project quite naturally. Being patient now will bring you the most long-term rewards. You may be looking for sustenance through practical activities and your connection with the physical world with the Moon’s trine to Mars.
CancerRetrograde Venus and the Sun come together today, dear Cancer, and the past illuminates in a meaningful way. Your focus may very well be on love and past relating patterns. What happened in the past can be a very tricky area, so tread softly, but consider viewing old matters in new ways. More information may well surface about a private issue that will help you make better plans and future decisions. You may be a little clearer about which actions to take based on recent revelations. For now, process and digest things rather than finalize — that’s what retrograde Venus is about, and we’re about halfway through. You’re in a wonderful position to start fresh on an emotional level. Also today, your sectors of spirit and life are emphasized and in good shape, boosting your enthusiasm and passion for your beliefs and ideas. The Moon spends the day in your sector of joy, encouraging you to follow your heart.
LeoThere can be a distinct focus on matters of the past today, dear Leo, particularly related to projects, friends, or lovers. Retrograde Venus meets with the Sun, and new information about old issues can come to light. You might learn something about, or make contact with, someone from your past. Instead, you could see problem areas more distinctly, and this can help you develop a new approach to friendship matters, group connections, or long-term happiness goals and projects in the future. You are more able to see what is tripping you up, which can lead you on a path toward making improvements. You could have new motivation to go forward with different expectations and demands in these areas. In the coming weeks, there can be a chance to start fresh in a relationship based on revelations you have now. Also today, you are particularly enthusiastic about coming to an emotional understanding of yourself and someone you love. Private and intimate matters benefit.
VirgoRetrograde Venus and the Sun align at the top of your solar chart today, dear Virgo, and it’s a powerful time for reevaluating your projects and goals. This transit gives you an exclusive window into the past that helps you make better decisions in the future. Business benefits from using strategy in your planning and looking back or behind you before moving ahead. There can also be a focus on past relationships, but with a new perspective. You see things differently during this Venus retrograde, and areas of discontent are more prominent than usual. You’ll find that recent revelations can now motivate you to begin fresh, particularly with business, career, professional matters, or public image and reputation. You can be redefining your goals and what it is you truly value in positive, helpful ways. Money and belongings can also be areas where a new attitude is developing. Today is a time for staying on the move or mixing up the routine to keep you mentally stimulated.
LibraYou can find yourself drawn to the physical world and practical activities for filling your emotional needs today, dear Libra, and these can be satisfying. You have an intuitive understanding of how to use your resources or talents to your benefit. Also today, retrograde Venus moves into alignment with the Sun, and a new perspective can see you redefining some of your beliefs, ideals, goals, and dreams. You might also more clearly see which approaches or expectations you had in the past that sent you along the wrong path. Through this new light on the past, you can gain significant insight into mysteries from your personal history. It’s a good time to set up new intentions, particularly related to health, vitality, beliefs, studies, love, passion projects, and interests. There can be a sense of emotional renewal and a fresh start or a new beginning based on current revelations about what you love and value the most.
ScorpioThe Moon transits your sign and harmonizes with Mars and Neptune, dear Scorpio, generating emotional energy that’s right up your alley. You’re more creative and expressive. Also today, the Sun aligns with retrograde Venus, and you might receive further information about a past relationship that can be eye-opening, helping with closure. Even if things get nowhere or seem to go backward, it’s a necessary process for illuminating where you stand and what you will take forward with you into the future. A bit of detachment can help you. While you may have been feeling a bit in the dark about your feelings, new awareness and the beginnings of a plan of action are likely to emerge now. Intimate relationships can benefit from a fresh start or vision as you are redefining what you want and need from others, as well as what you expect from yourself.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, dear Sagittarius, and you’re turning inward just enough to recharge and rest. Good energy is with you for special attention to your emotional, inner, or domestic world. With the Sun and retrograde Venus coming into alignment in your opposite sign, it’s also a time for getting closer to your true feelings about a relationship. Learning new things about a previous relationship can figure strongly, or you’re coming to a new understanding of your relationship needs. You might open your eyes to something because you’re now truly ready to “see” it. Through these revelations, you gain further insight into an old problem, or you might reconnect with someone from your past, sparking a new approach. It’s a time to set intentions and goals that better reflect your redefined wants and needs or your expectations of others. This transit brings on new-beginning energy that’s strong for a fresh start or turning point. The focus should be on strategy and plans of action rather than quick maneuvers for best results.
CapricornToday’s Moon connections suggest a focus on creative sharing and interaction, dear Capricorn. The Sun aligns with retrograde Venus today, making it a fine time for looking back at old jobs, projects, and even working relationships for insight into current issues. You’re likely to learn new things about old problems, mainly related to work, health, and relationships. Discontent with your feelings of pleasure and comfort can magnify this week, and events or epiphanies occurring now can lead to an attitude change that sets you on a new and improved path. Seeing where you may have been tripping up or chasing the wrong things in the past can be part of this. Brand new beginnings in the material world should probably wait, but beginning anew on an emotional level is most appropriate. With today’s new-beginning energy and your unique vision, you might make resolutions to change unproductive or unsatisfying patterns. You might aim to bring more harmony and beauty to your daily affairs and routines.
AquariusActivities that help ground you on an emotional level fare quite well for you today, dear Aquarius. Still, the Sun shines its light on your past as it meets with retrograde Venus today, and you’re paying attention to romantic relationships or opportunities gone by. Discontent with current entertainment, hobbies, connections, or pleasures can spur you to make things better as you go forward. While dwelling on the past is unproductive, a review of past attitudes, events, and feelings can be most helpful now. With new insight into past endeavors or relationships, you’re going forward with a new set of expectations and redefined needs. You’ll be reorienting yourself on an improved course, emotionally speaking. This insight makes it that much easier to seek out people, projects, and pastimes that truly fit your life and your evolving self. Today and the next few days are excellent to reevaluate critical areas of your life, mainly related to creativity, hobbies, romance, and friendship, in terms of whether or not they genuinely fulfill you. You might reconnect with an old love or friend, or learn something new about a previous relationship.
PiscesVenus continues its retrograde period until June 25th, and is now midway through this cycle, dear Pisces, meeting up with the Sun today. You’re redefining and refining what you find valuable and worth your while during this retrograde period. It’s a fine time for looking at something from an entirely different perspective, particularly family relationships, home life, living conditions, and projects or studies. Especially with insights gained now, you’ll be in a better position to understand your needs and values, and to make decisions accordingly. Reconnecting ties with people you love may prove particularly satisfying now. It’s an excellent time for discovering information that was previously hidden or overlooked. You could be working on problems with family or in the home, or making solid plans to improve things. In many ways, you’re wiping the slate clean and ready to begin anew. Today’s Moon harmonizes with Mars and Neptune in your sign, boosting your mood and personal appeal. With your natural exuberance, you may very well inspire others.
