Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
Fresh energy is with us today, dear Aries, and it’s the kind that encourages you to let go of some of your inhibitions to pursue your desires. It’s a time for growing and improving situations, relationships, attitudes, and projects through a spirit of openness. A progressive approach works best with a Venus-Uranus sextile active now. With increased freedom and respect, relationships flourish. You can be in the position to let go of dysfunctional behaviors. Business or money matters can also benefit. Even so, it’s best to wait a few days for brand new initiatives. However, your hopefulness can be exciting now, motivating you to move forward on something that was previously stuck or hampering your spirit.
Venus in your social sector harmonizes with Uranus in your sign today, dear Taurus, and you can enjoy a boost to your social life. It can otherwise be a strong time for inventive new ideas, dreams, and a sense of possibilities. Look to friends and group activities for opportunities to mingle with someone special. Inviting energy is with you today for all things romantic and creative, and themes of openness, adventure, and progress improve your mood and outlook. It’s a time for a spark of excitement and strong motivation to make changes to your life, particularly with people and projects that inspire you.
You can feel as if a weight has lifted today, dear Gemini, and your mood is buoyant! Venus is newly at the top of your solar chart, benefiting your professional or public life in the coming weeks, and today, its fresh connection with Uranus can boost you up, particularly in the eyes of the public or higher-ups. An opportunity to draw upon your inner wisdom to solve a problem can emerge. You’re bringing inventiveness and unique insight to whatever you’re doing, and you’re more than likely to get credit for it. You are more idealistic than you are practical at the moment, and it suits you well today.
Your personal appeal is strong today, dear Cancer, and with Venus and Uranus connecting, it’s an influential “people” day. Experimenting with ideas can bring you opportunities, and so can networking. Learning, sharing, promoting, and publishing can be in focus and good form now. Refreshing or renewing friendships can be exciting. You’re likely to connect with others who inspire you mentally or with topics and information that similarly motivate you. In turn, others are attracted to your uniqueness and ideas. Intellectual exchanges are not only enjoyable, but they can be quite fruitful today, and for some of you, there can be a mind-expanding experience.
You may sense that blocks are lifting today, dear Leo, and at the very least, there is a spirit of progress around you. People seem to be willing to move past problems. There can be a happy intimate connection, a financial advance, or a workplace improvement that puts you in a fine mood now. People on the job may be noticing and appreciating you for your unique input. Problems might be solved, not necessarily through great effort or focus, but through a general willingness to let things go and put things behind you. Freedom from an obligation can figure strongly, and it feels great, or the discovery of a new way to approach a nagging problem is exciting. With Venus and Uranus harmonizing, you’re in a good position to improve a relationship or to have a social breakthrough of sorts.
Interactions with others and the ideas that result can be exciting and inspiring today, dear Virgo. One-on-one relationships may provide motivating and stimulating experiences as Venus in your partnership sector harmonizes with progressive Uranus. This is about embracing new ways of doing things, and especially new ways to relate and interact with others. You’re very open to learning or teaching something new, and to experiment with out-of-the-ordinary activities. Relationships benefit from an open, accepting approach to desires and needs. Cooperation is natural now. The Moon moves from your domestic sector into your creativity zone today, further reinforcing the benefits of a more friendly, open approach to your world.
You’re in an excellent position to bring a positive, progressive approach to practical matters today, dear Libra, and it benefits you very much to do so. Solutions to problems are unlikely to be traditional ones right now, or they don’t come about in the usual way, so it makes sense to keep your mind open to possibilities. Positive vibes are generated as you pursue your daily routines or work, and quite possibly, social opportunities can result. You may discover alternative methods regarding health, nutrition, or fitness that are exciting indeed. Doing things just a little differently can open doors, or at the very least, improve your mood and concentration.
Others are unlikely to turn you, or your plans, down today, dear Scorpio, as Venus and Uranus harmonize in your relationship sectors. While Mercury is still retrograde for another day and it’s not yet the ideal time to move things forward, it’s a beautiful day for feeling fresher, more confident, and more hopeful. There is a cheerful spirit of growth to the day, and it becomes you. Others are drawn to your quirkier, more unique qualities, which you’re happy to share; or, you’re drawing unusual people to you. You can turn around most any problem or boring situation with a fresh and fun approach. This can be a day of a surprise invite for some. In some manner in your relationships, you can symbolically break the chains that have bound you to past, restrictive behaviors. Reach out and connect today.
An open and forthcoming approach with others can be most pleasant and beneficial today, dear Sagittarius, and this may be especially the case with family or people with whom you live or share close quarters. Your thinking is forward-looking and confident, and you can approach domestic matters and routines or work in a new and improved way. Alternative methods or approaches to health and wellness deserve a second look, too. On the home front, you can be in the mood to change things up. A Venus-Uranus harmonious aspect adds a pleasant element of surprise and perhaps a bit of genius to your interactions. Family, home, and work matters can move forward pleasantly, perhaps with a breakthrough of sorts, particularly if you are open to new ideas for improving your situation. Mind you, Mercury is still retrograde until tomorrow, and there can be a hump to get over, but things are looking up.
You’re in wonderful form socially and creatively today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon moving into your sign and Venus connecting with Uranus in sociable sectors of your solar chart. This is a potentially pleasant and perhaps even breakthrough time for romantic matters, learning, sharing, and connecting in general. You feel freer and more spontaneous than usual. There can be interesting things to learn through a sibling, classmate, or friend, or the inspiration comes for a topic of interest. Updated technology might open up a new channel of communication for you, or you may connect with a special friend. News from a love interest could be pleasantly unexpected.
This can be a pleasant day for home improvement or the discovery of new interests, dear Aquarius, or perhaps the reawakening of a past interest that you now have the time or tools to explore. Venus and Uranus harmonize today, and you’re a little more daring and willing to experiment, particularly with your practical, business, and financial affairs that can certainly use some fresh thinking and may benefit from a fresh perspective. With openness to new ways of doing the routine, you can have some fun and make progress today. It’s a fine day for personal appeal, too, with lovely Venus in contact with your planetary ruler. Mercury stations tomorrow, and the shift requires some sensitivity, but things are certainly looking up.
Venus is newly in your sign, dear Pisces, and is in harmony with Uranus today, boosting your popularity and your mood. There can be good news received, but it’s also entirely possible that something you communicate, or how you deliver your message, is helping you achieve what you desire. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests can work well for you now, although it should be said that Mercury is about to turn direct and its shift today and tomorrow requires some sensitivity. There can be minor social blunders or mild misunderstandings to sort through, but overall energies with you now feel hopeful and progressive. You might not know where you’re heading just yet, but you have a sense that it’s the right direction.
