Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Attracting friends and those who share common interests comes especially easy now, dear Aries. It’s also a strong day for sharing your plans with someone and brainstorming to make them better. There may have been a rude awakening of sorts in recent days or a disturbance that made you wonder about someone’s affections towards you, but today, you are learning from the experience. There is some tendency to see things for what you want to see today, however. There can be a misunderstanding as a result, but you’re in a wonderful position to let things unfold as they may, and it feels good to put a little faith in a situation.
You are likely to “feel good feelings” about a special someone today, dear Taurus, and it’s satisfying to give someone the benefit of the doubt. Nevertheless, there can be some lack of clarity today. You can be a little starry-eyed this morning, in fact, after which you’re increasingly attracted to projects and situations that feel reliable, practical, and long-term. This is not the time to be seeing romantic or social relationships very clearly, and you may very well be faced with a misunderstanding in this respect. If possible, schedule more imaginative tasks rather than those that require concentration, and in the process, enjoy a bit of distancing from a matter that has rented too much space in your brain.
Your more philosophical side comes to the fore today, dear Gemini, and your ability to take it as it comes and to forgive and forget is going strong. In fact, it’s out there for everyone to see. It’s an excellent day for winning someone’s favor or trust. It’s also good for taking a friendship to another level. Even so, try to avoid making promises that you may not be able to keep at a later date. The tendency to overestimate your capabilities runs high right now. Today is super healthy for natural energy with a partner or significant other. If you need to make any “repairs” in your relationship, now is a fine time to do so, but subtly! Nevertheless, there is some tendency to misjudge a few things, as much as you want to see reality, so that making firm commitments is best saved for a clearer time.
You inspire confidence in a subtle, gentle way today, dear Cancer, although there is some tendency for people to second-guess first impressions. Taking a new approach to putting forth your goals is in order now. Pleasant, non-demanding activities shared with special people can be a release from your regular concerns. Take a break from the usual routine and try something different now, if possible. You are more accepting of the idea of taking the bad with the good. Today is strong for feeling loved and for expressing or giving love. However, promises made now, however well-intentioned, may not be fulfilled later. A Venus-Neptune influence this morning does tend to cloud your vision related to confidential matters and finances. Watch for glossing things over right now.
People are more cooperative than usual today, dear Leo, and you’re attracting helpful and pleasant people into your life. Treating a partner as a true equal – as a friend – is favored right now, and has great rewards. Someone’s faith in you can brighten your day, as you only want to prove further that they are correct for thinking so highly of you! Romantic and sentimental feelings are active right now, and for the creative, this can be a good day for expressing your art and receiving good feedback. Love affairs today can receive a boost of confidence, although there can be a brief dip as you question whether you see things clearly. In truth, today’s energies are a little murky when it comes to people and their motivations, but if you need to adjust your vision of a matter a little, you may very well count yourself lucky for getting closer to the truth.
You’re open to fixing things with others, dear Virgo, and you’re creative about handling sensitive topics. While there is some tendency to tiptoe around an issue, it may be a good idea to do so just for the time being. Improving intimacy with a partner or a friend now is more about listening well without judging. You are inclined to help someone out today, just for the sake of helping, and it’s bound to feel good. It’s a good day as well for romantic pleasures and comforts. Intimacy levels can grow exponentially if you’re open to it but be careful not to mislead a friend, which can happen even with your good intentions. In fact, this morning is a less than ideal time for seeing your relationships clearly, and while you might want to watch for getting worked up about something that never actually transpires, consider that you may not need to know everything about a situation now.
Words might convey more emotional meaning than usual right now, dear Libra, and your powers of attraction lie in your ability to rise above petty concerns to see the bigger picture. Accept and forgive for best results today. You may not have all the details of a matter to draw a conclusion, but you can be quite content to let the details fill in as you go along. Do consider that you might be seeing more value in something (or someone) than is realistic just for now, however, so it may be the best time to commit or decide important affairs, but it’s just fine to pick up on cues you might miss on a more practically-focused day. Relationships today can be strengthened with a little bit of magic in the form of openness and willingness to learn from one another.
You might enjoy creative interactions with special people in your life today, dear Scorpio, and you have quite the eye for value and art, which can be expressed through pleasing interactions with others, creating something unique, decoration, and even making fun purchases. There is some tendency to make more of something than it is, however, or to gloss over uncomfortable details. Your magnetism remains strong, and you may very well enjoy a bit of fantasy now. Your imagination is soaring. You’re also radiating some healing energy that draws others to you, even with some murkiness or uncertainty in your social life or with family. Hold off on drawing firm conclusions based on what you see now, which may not be the whole story, but do enjoy some flights of fancy.
Good energy is with you today for bonding with a special someone, dear Sagittarius, but it might involve letting go of the need to know all the details of a situation. Sometimes after a disruption, there is a strong feeling of growth and even a feeling of having a new lease on life, and this is the kind of emotion you could be experiencing today. It’s a good time to allow yourself to be a little vulnerable. In fact, this only serves to boost your appeal. You’re likely to want to bring your individuality and creativity to whatever you do now. Opportunities to reawaken talents or parts of yourself that you were too shy to express can arise now. If you’ve been missing important spiritual considerations when trying to make a decision, you’ll feel the lack now.
Relationships can be strengthened with an air of discretion and acceptance today, dear Capricorn. In fact, letting go of the “need to know” can be refreshing, as can having a little faith. Reasons to bond don’t have to be something overt. In fact, the day’s energies favor more spontaneous, unforced efforts to interact. Express your sincere interest and let things unfold from there. The social side of working through a problem is of greater appeal now, and helping someone out can very effectively give them a message that you care, perhaps even more so than showier displays of affection. Do watch for deals that seem too good to be true now in more formal, financial, or business-like settings.
Venus is rather newly transiting your sign, dear Aquarius, but its recent clash with Uranus may not have revealed your charms in the best of light. Not so today! Others are appreciating the very qualities you project naturally, and they may be hanging on your every word. It’s a time for basking a little but sharing as well. Your words can be healing, and so can the words you receive in reciprocation. Even so, while your charm is lovely, people may be reading you just a little off as Venus in your sign forms a minor challenging aspect with Neptune, perhaps making some assumptions, and this could get you into a bit of a pickle at some point. Some social situations can be hard to read yourself, but as the day advances, you’ll find it quite easy to shake off this minor confusion and enjoy yourself. It may very well be that you don’t need to know every last detail of a situation.
Relationships can strengthen now with an attitude that you’re learning from one another, dear Pisces, as well as through openness with your affections and expressions of concern. At the same time, this is not a day for having to know every last detail of an issue. In fact, putting a little faith in someone or a situation can be satisfying. The day can be much like the calm after the storm, and it’s appropriate to let things unfold as they may. The comforts of familiar settings and possibly even some level of solitude are fully appreciated as the day advances. It’s a fine time for kicking back and enjoying quiet moments. There can be some difficulties seeing friends clearly, but this is not something to worry about. If you end up recognizing areas where you’ve been glossing things over, you can focus on the fact that this ultimately helps you make better choices.
