Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou have some great energy with you today for imagination, forgiveness, resting, and releasing stress as Venus and Neptune form a sextile, dear Aries. At the same time, you can be winding up quite a bit with Mars approaching a conjunction with Pluto. You might decide to do something creative, physical, or otherwise tension-relieving now. Giving out the kind of approval and affection you’d like to receive is a good idea now since energies are good, on the one hand, for promoting peace and harmony, which seems important now and is mutually beneficial. This can also be a fine time for intuiting new ideas about how to handle your finances, although you might also be attracted to comfort objects. On the other hand, your ambitions to meet or exceed a goal are going strong, and the pressure is on as Mars and Pluto align at the top of your solar chart. You seem to have extra courage to reach the top. Try not to wear yourself out in the process! Be sure to make time for breaks from current pressures.
TaurusA Venus-Neptune sextile today is very helpful for breaking some of the tension, dear Taurus. It helps tune you into the subtle or otherworldly elements of life, and your understanding of others, yourself, and your purpose skyrockets as a result. Offering sincere and mindful advice, being a source of comfort, and inspiring others with your insight can figure strongly now. Helping someone can lift your spirits, and the spirit of friendship dominates. It’s especially satisfying to put others’ needs before yours at the moment. Venus is currently in your sign, boosting your appeal further. At the same time, a Mars-Pluto alignment is winding you up mentally. A compelling experience may happen now that changes your perspective. The goal should be to purge and let go, responsibly, if you’re seeking or defending an opinion today and tomorrow.
GeminiToday’s Venus-Neptune aspect is useful for breaking some tension, dear Gemini, while a Mars-Pluto aspect can wind you up. There may be a boost to your professional or public appeal, or you could come to a compassionate understanding of matters that have previously frustrated you. In some areas of life, it seems time to let go of anger so that you can move forward. It’s a potentially brilliant day for creativity. While the Moon at the top of your solar chart today emphasizes your goals and responsibilities, there is terrific energy for your imagination as well. Career matters can be serendipitous, and drawing on past ideas can be successful. Love’s complications may be of the pleasant variety right now, although as the day advances, you can be extremely focused if it means eliminating something unhealthy from your life or uncovering important truths. You may be craving intensity or experiencing it through a significant someone.
CancerWith a harmonious aspect between Venus and Neptune today, dear Cancer, forgiveness and grace are pushing up and out. You may want to take a chance on love and friendship with a kind gesture or expression. Imagination heightens, and you might find inspiration through friends and non-routine experiences. This transit can help boost your mood and inspire you to great heights. It’s also quite fine if you prefer to use this smooth energy to relax and unwind, as it’s terrific for smoothing things out and releasing tension as well. Whether relationships are challenging or happy, they stand to improve now. Still, Mars and Pluto are heading toward alignment, and while opportunities are emerging to break the tension, intensity is building in the background, particularly in a key relationship. The mood is dense, and you may need to break through some of this to reach a new level of understanding.
LeoA Venus-Neptune aspect today tends to cut some tension, dear Leo, helping you to see the beauty in the ordinary. It can be a time of self-discovery or the development of a close relationship. You are in the position to see matters in a compassionate light, more so than usual. There can be a visionary quality to your goals as you discover new ways of making things happen. You might engage an audience, group, or important person with a positive emphasis on your intimacy and public sectors. Release from pressure is wonderful on the one hand since demands have been intense on you recently. On the other, Mars and Pluto are heading into alignment, and this combination builds tension, ideally to make important changes. Your intuitive understanding of others’ feelings and moods boosts your dealings with them. Even so, the desire to gain more control over your life can become a driving force now.
VirgoWhile there is some intense energy with us now, dear Virgo, today’s Venus-Neptune sextile helps you find some release or helps you smooth things over. There can be an almost psychic rapport with someone significant in your life. The key is to attract through gentleness and warmth, even if you maintain some emotional distance. Compassion and understanding are in a stronger supply, and a healthy dose of these can help boost a connection. It’s also an excellent time to explore a new interest or topic. Today’s energies connect your partnership zone with your sector of beliefs, vision, and discovery in a pleasing way. Love matters can thrive as you open your heart. It’s a good time for connecting with people who benefit you spiritually. Still, we’re building toward a rather tense or intense Mars-Pluto alignment, and some tension is building. You can be quite determined to make improvements and changes as you strive to gain more control of your life.
LibraAllowing mysteries unravel at their own pace instead of attempting to rush things may be the answer to some of your current problems today, dear Libra, encouraged by today’s Venus-Neptune harmonious aspect. The gentler side of your nature emerges with this influence, and others especially enjoy you. As well, there can be good intuition for work, health, and research or analysis. This transit can help inspire a love of the services you provide for others or your work, and it can encourage you to bring more imagination to your daily life. You might find spots of time for unwinding and enjoying yourself. At the same time, we’re heading toward a Mars-Pluto aspect that can wind you up, particularly related to home, family, and personal life. Ideally, you can channel some of this energy into a productive activity that helps you make improvements to your domestic life, relationships, or relationship with yourself.
ScorpioWhile there is tense energy with us today, dear Scorpio, a Venus-Neptune aspect is also active, and it encourages you to let go of negative or harmful thoughts. Lunar aspects are similar now. Love opportunities can emerge, and it can be a creative, romantic time for some. You are more intuitive about people and especially sensitive to their feelings. A gentle approach brings rewards. It’s also an excellent time for creating, writing, and making art or music, or for appreciating and enjoying original art, theater, writing, and music. You might notice things to appreciate about someone that you may have previously overlooked. This energy is subtle but warm. Still, as the day advances, we head toward a Mars-Pluto alignment that’s been building, and it tends to bring a feeling of urgency to your life. You might choose to use this tension or stress to boost your productivity.
SagittariusWhile there are tense transits building, dear Sagittarius, today’s Venus-Neptune influence encourages you to let things flow naturally rather than push in certain areas of your life. Connections with others tend to be enhanced, and you might enjoy some form of psychic rapport or communication. It’s a good time for promoting peace and balance. You might take particular pleasure in offering your help or services today. Wonderful energy is with you for getting in touch with your inner needs, sense of belonging and safety, and family or home matters. A Mars-Pluto alignment is building, exact tomorrow, and while you can feel some stress or pressure related to money or possessions, the emphasis should be on turning a situation around with this energy. Draw on your determination to make improvements to those things you can control and impact.
CapricornToday’s Venus-Neptune transit can highlight your ability to soothe and heal through your communications, dear Capricorn. Your perceptions heighten, and this allows you to understand others on a whole new level. There has been more than the usual pressure on your sign recently. While this continues to some degree for a while longer, you’re finding opportunities to express yourself in new ways. There is particularly good energy with you for communications–you might inspire others with your words or enjoy some personal interests and projects that intrigue and motivate you. You might enjoy a spot of release from stress, although a Mars-Pluto conjunction is in the works, and tension builds as you feel compelled to make changes and improvements. It’s mixed, but ideally, you can figure out where to let go of the pressure and where to apply it!
AquariusA Venus-Neptune aspect today helps to encourage sympathy for the underdog or stronger compassion for certain people in your life, dear Aquarius. It encourages taking more time to unwind. Helping someone out can be particularly rewarding with this transit. Today is strong for aiding family members, offering an ear, and for taking steps toward healing or mending connections. Bringing more imagination, vision, creativity, warmth, generosity, and compassion to the equation can be magical now. Going the extra mile for someone can strengthen you. Circumstances may be such that spiritual support is appreciated and needed. Life is slowing down in such a way that it’s easier to appreciate your life and the people in it. Still, a Mars-Pluto alignment is coming into play, and it winds you up in other areas of life. Watch for deflecting the blame or tense behavior with others, which can happen too easily under strain.
PiscesToday’s Venus-Neptune transit can be most helpful, dear Pisces, as it can cut some tension, encouraging understanding even if the words aren’t on the nose. It’s a time when your sentimental and gentle nature emerges, and others appreciate it as you own and express it. The Moon spends the day in your sign, further enhancing this theme. Venus is in your communications sector, suggesting that it may be through learning, connecting, communicating, and giving things further thought that benefits are likely to arise now. Your words, and even your nonverbal communications, are soothing, healing, and attractive. On the other hand, we’re heading toward a Mars-Pluto aspect which has been building, and while there can be some tension and pressure to make improvements, it’s also an energy that amps up your courage to make a difference.
