Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Today until early July, Venus graces the sector of your chart ruling commuting and communicating, dear Aries, launching a favorable period for new interests and conveying your message well. With the goddess of love and harmony working its magic in your sector of communications, connections, and learning, you are expressing yourself with considerable charm and grace. You’re also thoroughly enjoying learning, conversing, and connecting. You might receive positive publicity. It’s an excellent time to harmonize with relatives and acquaintances. Friendships might form through the phone, online, or places of learning. Today’s energies are strong for communications for another reason — a Sun-Chiron aspect. You could find yourself entirely absorbed in a pet project, or enjoying instrumental conversations now.
Venus exits your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Taurus, and will transit this area of your chart until July 3rd. This launches a favorable cycle for getting in touch with your feelings or appreciation for people in your life, as well as for better understanding your money situation and needs. Comforting activities help you heal, and you’re especially drawn to activities that soothe, comfort, and boost your confidence. Attracting the right resources can be easy and natural now. Venus is your planetary ruler, and its transit here can emphasize your natural love of comfort, predictability, and material things. Today is particularly favorable for intuitively recognizing what and who you most value, and it’s a good time for money matters.
Venus moves into your sign today where it will stay until July 3rd, dear Gemini, launching a fabulous cycle for connecting with your powers of attraction. You’re expressing yourself more freely, and others take notice. In the past few weeks with Venus in your privacy sector, feelings may have been kept private or at bay. You’re now more noticeable, standing out for your charm, and clearer about your passions. You may feel that you’re beginning a new cycle in love at this time. You’re more inclined to want to enjoy and pamper yourself. Today is especially strong for personal appeal–others are valuing and appreciating you, more so than usual. A friendship may be forged, and it can be of the long-lasting variety.
Venus begins its transit of your solar twelfth house today, dear Cancer, launching a cycle for processing recent events and current feelings until July 3rd. Benefits come from paying more attention to the hidden elements and patterns of your interactions. In fact, you can be looking at your life, feelings, and relationships in a new light during this cycle. It’s a time for getting in touch with what’s best for you in the long run and for checking in with your deeper feelings about a matter or a person. The introspection you do now can be particularly helpful by July 3rd when Venus moves into your sign, and you’re likely to feel refreshed and ready to turn over a whole new leaf in your romantic or social life.
Venus begins its transit of your friendship sector today, dear Leo, where it will visit until July 3rd. This influence tends to encourage more harmony, balance, and general benefits in your social life. Warmth, charm, and grace are themes with friends and networks in the weeks ahead. Helpful people and possibly new friendships may enter your life now. Your happiness goals, wishes, and dreams assume more importance. Sharing your work, ideas, or expertise with others can be rewarding. Others see you, and you see friends, in a particularly favorable light. Today, companionship is more important to you than usual. The Moon transits your sign until it enters Virgo and your resources sector later today, serving to balance or steady your emotions.
Today is strong for improving your reputation, dear Virgo, as well as for bonding with others who share similar goals and visions. Also today, Venus moves to the top of your solar chart where it will transit until early July, and you’re in a particularly favorable light in your professional or public activities. You’re more likely to enjoy pursuing your goals and ambitions, and it’s also favorable for bringing more flair or warmth to your work. Social opportunities may very well arise from professional dealings or business. Your personality, concern, care, or artistry can be the biggest selling points in your career or business and the major contributing factor to your success right now. Later today, the Moon enters your sign and reminds of you of your need to interact, lead, and express yourself.
Venus begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Libra, and until July 3rd, you’re enjoying an excellent cycle for freer expression and enjoyment. In the weeks ahead, you might break free from a challenging situation or more simply, you’re inclined to take things more lightly and freely. It’s a generally more outgoing, spirited, and adventurous time in your life, and it becomes you! Activities that tend to fare particularly well now are promotional, publishing, or related to travel and higher education. A love of learning blossoms. This can be a great time for exploring some of your more exotic tastes and interests, and a generally braver time for expressing your feelings.
Today’s energies favor research, observation, and new insight into your relationships, dear Scorpio. Also today, Venus enters your solar eighth house for a stay of over three weeks, and you’re in good shape for bonding with someone (or yourself) more deeply, although it’s not the most straightforward transit for outward expressions of love and affection. This cycle favors a focus on the more intricate or complex side of your relationships or finances. Approaching the trickier gray areas of life with more grace, charm, and understanding can help boost your life in key ways. This is a good period for finding support or backing from others, emotional and financial.
Today is active for bonding with a partner, reaching a fair agreement or compromise, and for family relations, dear Sagittarius. Later today, the Moon heads to the top of your solar chart, and you’re in the mood to take care of business. Setting goals for yourself can be satisfying now. Also today, Venus enters your partnership sector and will transit this area of your solar chart until July 3rd. It’s a favorable cycle for attracting and improving close relationships, especially one-on-one connections. You seem to attract others who are helpful or kind, or you seek out more company than usual and it feels good to share your activities and ideas with someone. This period generally favors counseling, legal matters, partnerships, and negotiations.
Today’s energies are strong for committing to a project or health endeavor, dear Capricorn. As well, Venus begins its transit of your work and health sector launching a cycle that can boost your satisfaction with (or enjoyment of) your work and daily routines for an extended period–until July 3rd. The weeks ahead can be a time for bringing more harmony to your everyday life. You might especially enjoy supporting and helping others. It may also be that your job improves as you add more personality and warmth to what you’re doing or you receive excellent feedback for your efforts. Even so, later today, the Moon enters your adventure sector, encouraging you to come up for air from time to time!
Today’s energies are favorable for bonding in love relationships, dear Aquarius, or a renewed commitment to a leisure pursuit, relationship, or a creative project can figure strongly now. It helps, too, that Venus begins its transit of your solar fifth house where it will stay until July 3rd, harmonizing with your sign and encouraging you to express yourself more freely or playfully. You feel particularly comfortable in your own skin during this period, and others take notice! This can be a time for enjoying happy events related to romance or recreational pastimes. Your natural charm is appreciated more than usual, and you harmonize with others more easily. The weeks ahead are likely to be smoother than usual socially and can be excellent for discovering or reconnecting with a hobby.
Today’s energies are especially favorable for family affairs and emotional matters, dear Pisces. Honesty with those closest to you can help improve bonds. Also today, Venus begins its transit of your solar fourth house, and until July 3rd, there can be a strong focus on harmony and warmth in your home and with family matters. This is a somewhat insular cycle, but it’s quite excellent for coming to a better understanding of your needs, desires, and feelings, as well as for connecting with loved ones. You’re more cautious than usual when it comes to pursuing pleasure, spending money, and expressing your affections during this cycle. You may get the chance to strengthen and improve family relationships or to build a better relationship with yourself.
