Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon stimulates your need for private or personal time, dear Aries, and stepping out of the limelight for a spell can be quite refreshing. Venus has just begun a transit of your solar second house, and until April 3rd, you enjoy increased self-esteem that reflects out to the world, helping you attract income, gifts, or benefits. It’s most appealing to you to build and collect. You’re particularly skilled at managing your resources and using people skills to move your business forward in the weeks ahead. Exhibiting patience with money or your business can be particularly beneficial now. It’s a good time for developing your talents or using them in pleasing ways. Relationships stabilize, or you gravitate toward familiar, comfortable people and connections. While you may be a little bit self-indulgent, possessive, or acquisitive during this cycle, generally speaking, it’s excellent for learning about your needs.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your communications sector, dear Taurus, and you’re especially curious, desiring some interaction and movement. Venus has just entered your sign–another enlivening and most pleasant influence, and this one lasts until April 3rd. In the weeks ahead, you radiate good energy, and you tend to attract positive attention and feedback as a result. There can be more clarity in your love life or with your feelings and affections. Others are seeing your more attractive and desirable traits–more so than usual–and you’re inclined to do more self-pampering or treating yourself to things you genuinely enjoy. This is a time for living well and putting the right kind of vibes out there to attract pleasant circumstances into your life.
GeminiThe Moon’s transit today stimulates your need for more comfort and familiarity than usual, dear Gemini, and this is precisely what you need at this stage in the lunar month. While the weeks ahead can be a time when you find your affections or feelings a little hard to express, it’s an excellent time for enjoying some level of solitude and privacy, as well as for becoming very cozy with your inner world. Venus has just begun its transit of your privacy sector and will continue here until April 3rd. Ideally, you gain a greater understanding of your past and your innermost feelings about recent events. A private, down-low, or processing theme is likely regarding your affections and relationships. Intuition is heightened, particularly with relationships and people, and so is sensitivity, so be kind to yourself during this period. There can be joy found in some level of solitude or your private life and inner garden. Spiritual or unfulfilled needs in your relationships come to the fore.
CancerThe Moon in your sign all day encourages investing in your personal plans and extra attention to yourself and your emotional needs, dear Cancer.

You can become more aware of a desire to be involved in the community or part of a particular group or club.
