Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
While the Moon continues to inspire you to get out of your routine and explore today, dear Aries, Venus enters your privacy and soul sector today, encouraging an inward focus until April 20th. This comes at an interesting time as it sticks with you until the last day of the Sun’s transit of Aries. As such, part of you is all out there, while another part is unattainable or private. Some people are sure to find this attractive, while others may not know what to think! This Venus transit can bring more pleasure and happiness derived from behind the scenes, healing activities or solitude. This cycle brings a little more mystery to your love life and even to your feelings, which can be hard to define. You’re more inclined to let them flow rather than question or analyze them. You may have some mulling things over or soul searching to do in the weeks ahead. There is every reason to take your time during this cycle when it comes to matters of the heart and decisions about love, and it can also be true of money! With Mercury soon to end its retrograde in this same sector of your chart, however, this Venus transit seems to come in to make things right again.
Venus moves into your friendship, dreams, and wish sector today, dear Taurus, and will transit there until April 20th when the Sun will enter your sign and your personal new year begins. Venus, now in the sign of Pisces, is soulful and compassionate, and there can be interesting connections with and through friends made in the weeks ahead. It’s easier than usual for you to attract friends and those who share common interests. It comes at an opportune time, too, as Mercury is just days away from ending its retrograde cycle in this same sector of your chart. With the help of Venus, you’ll iron out differences and smooth things out. By nature, you are always especially helpful with friends, and this trait comes into prominence now. You’ll find it natural to express your feelings and attract what you want into your life.
Responsibilities in love become clearer in the coming weeks, dear Gemini, with Venus now moving through your solar tenth house and Mercury just two days away from ending its retrograde cycle in the same sector. In the weeks ahead, you’ll find it easier to cooperate and charm others, particularly in public or professional settings. There can be a boost in your reputation now. You may be cutting deals and negotiating with more ease until April 20th, although you’ll likely need a few days before you truly feel more confident about these things. In the weeks ahead, though, there can be increased social and financial opportunities through your business or professional dealings, and others may be noticing your creativity and warmth. Making personal contact with people in positions of authority or with the public can enhance your career and reputation. You might also feel more comfortable showcasing your talents.
The weeks ahead are for sharing your light, dear Cancer, as Venus heads into harmony with your sign, traveling through your spirit sector until April 20th. This comes just days before Mercury ends its retrograde cycle in this same area of your solar chart. This transit gently and pleasantly stimulates your desire for more variety and diversity in your life. Your tastes for pleasures, people, and places can be just a little more exotic or out of the ordinary. It’s a time for bringing out your natural highlights for all to see and enjoy as a spirit of adventure and discovery takes hold. Your personality is admired and appreciated — those qualities that come most naturally to you are qualities that people are generally enjoying at this time. You’re inclined to seek out the things and the people that make you happy.
With Venus heading into your solar eighth house until April 20th, dear Leo, deeper, more profound relationships are sought out — and they have the potential to be more rewarding than usual. Coming to peaceful agreements about money is possible, and this transit may come at just the right time since Mercury has been retrograde in this same area of your chart for a few weeks, perhaps complicating or delaying things with money, projects, or relationships. Going forward, you can find it easy to attract support if needed. This cycle favors working on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. It’s also encouraging for getting close to someone or spending extra time on a project or venture you love. Mind you, it runs alongside the Sun’s transit of your adventure sector, and this can mean you’re working on multiple levels. While you’re seeking more experiences in general, you’re taking your private life more seriously.
Venus begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Virgo, encouraging a pleasant focus on your relationships. Mercury is in this same sector of your solar chart, and while still retrograde, will only be so for another two days. Venus seems to be swooping at just the right time, helping you smooth out your connections. This is a transit that can bring happy or helpful people into your life, or it can boost current relationships. If you have any need for peace-making with others, or for benefiting from counseling, it’s a great time for doing so. You are open to conciliate and compromise now, considering the other side of the coin before making decisions. With Mercury shifts in the coming days, there can be some problems with being understood, but you’re sure to come out ahead. This is a time for treating others as equals and accepting no less in return.
Opportunities to balance out and enjoy your daily routines can emerge now that Venus heads into your solar sixth house, dear Libra. Lasting until April 20th, this cycle is good for enjoying your work, improving upon it, or enjoying chances to meet people or socialize through the pursuit of your daily affairs. Work or health endeavors can be more satisfying than usual in the coming few weeks. There may be some lack of discipline at times, however! It may not be the most productive times of the year, but this transit serves a useful purpose, as the enjoyment of your work and routines is helpful. Today and tomorrow, you’re particularly inventive, and you’re likely to have a great time coming up with interesting plans and methods. It’s an opportunity period with relationships, too.
Venus moves into the sign of Pisces today, dear Scorpio, where it will transit until April 20th, and this is divine energy for enjoying yourself, for magnetism, and for personal popularity. Venus brings graciousness, the power of attraction, an urge to interact, and considerable charm to your solar house of self-expression, creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play, reinforcement, and even applause. It’s a transit that frames you well — one in which others tend to appreciate your natural qualities. You’re likely to enjoy wonderfully flowing, attracting energy in the weeks ahead, despite the fact that the Sun is concurrently encouraging a more practical focus. This Venus transit comes at a good time since Mercury has been retrograde in recent weeks (and for a couple more days). Venus in this sector of your chart can offer a nice release from pressures.
Venus moves into your home and heart sector today, dear Sagittarius, staying here until April 20th. It comes at an interesting time–just days before Mercury ends its retrograde cycle in the same sector. It can help you smooth out problems and acts to stimulate your appreciation for the comforts and familiarity of home, family, and familiar people and places. It’s an excellent period for redecorating and entertaining in the home and repairing or refreshing relations with family. Your heart may be playing it safe with new people, however. Love might be found close to home. This cycle is terrific for directing positive energy into your home and family life. Creating more harmony in your domestic world can be in focus now. The Moon spends the day in your sign, adding further color to your emotional world.
Venus moves into an enhancing angle to your sign today, dear Capricorn, and will continue to boost your appeal, as well as confidence in your ability to attract what you want into your life, until April 20th. You have pleasing energy with you for expressing yourself, social curiosity, learning (although there can be some laziness), and sharing ideas with others. This comes at just the right time since Mercury is only just finishing up its retrograde cycle in the same sector of your solar chart (the communications sector). You’ll benefit greatly from the smoothing-over powers of Venus, especially if retrograde Mercury has introduced some delays and frustrations into your life in recent weeks. There could be some good publicity or news, invitations, and greater ease in your social life in the weeks ahead.
Venus exits your sign today and enters your personal resources sector, dear Aquarius, sticking around there until April 20th. Since Mercury has been retrograde in this same area of your solar chart in recent weeks, the smoothing-over powers of Venus can be most welcome here. Affections stabilize during this cycle. You could be spending more money on beautiful things, comfort items, and things that are expected to last for a long time. Salary increases are possible, and any gifts coming into your life during the coming weeks tend to be more notable or lavish than usual. With love and friendship, you’re looking for familiarity and security. This can be a steadier period for your affections, perhaps because you’re more interested in getting comfortable than seeking out new experiences. You are more gracious when handling yourself, and more likely to take the high road. Increased self-respect earns you more respect from others. You are attracting the good things in life!
Venus moves into your sign for a stay of over three weeks, dear Pisces, presenting a beautiful time for feeling comfortable in your own skin and for attracting what you want into your life. You’re freer with your feelings during this cycle and perhaps inclined to pamper or enjoy yourself more fully. This ingress comes at the right time as Mercury has only two more days of its retrograde motion in your sign, and Venus can help pick up any slack that retrograde Mercury may have caused in your life. Your feelings and plans are sure to become clearer, and attention is coming your way in the coming days and weeks. You radiate good energy, attracting positive feedback. Venus in Pisces boosts your warmth, charm, and personal attractiveness. Even so, it’s a fine time for building up self-acceptance.
