Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Venus and Uranus falling into alignment today, dear Aries, you can feel a strong desire to start fresh, approach things differently, and make changes and improvements. Your tastes can be out of the ordinary, or you can feel overcome by a desire to do or experience something new. Certainly, if old methods aren’t satisfying, it’s time to shake things up a little. You might decide to make an exciting or unusual purchase or to indulge in something unconventional. Discoveries may be made along financial lines as this alignment occurs in your sector of income and possessions. Impulsive spending can be problematic now, but on the other hand, you might stumble upon a fabulous find. Connections with others can inspire you in your creative or business life. It can also be a time for recognizing the need to let go of certain things that are cluttering up your life, and clearing things out can be liberating.
TaurusWith Venus and Uranus aligning in your sign today, dear Taurus, you’ll feel particularly refreshed and invigorated, or you’ll be seeking experiences that make you feel fresh and new. Your appeal is strong, too. There can be surprises related to money, work, or love. Your craving for more variety in your life can steer you in exciting new directions. The day is about moving onward and embracing change and growth, and you can make some fascinating discoveries, particularly about yourself or your image. The Moon moves into your creativity sector and harmonizes with Venus in your sign today, boosting your magnetism even further.
GeminiYou’re gravitating to the right situations that help you move forward right now, dear Gemini. Venus aligns with Uranus in your privacy sector, pointing to an awakening of your inner eye or your deeper feelings about a matter. Something occurring today can lead to wonderful memories or unexpected feelings. There may be a private attraction, or you’re inspired and motivated by a shared secret or special moment. A past love, whether that’s a person or interest, can quite suddenly become more relevant today. You are likely to stir the pot just a little, and the results can be fascinating. Whether feelings are new or renewed, you might enjoy discovering them today.
CancerToday’s transits are powerful for your connection with your intuition, dear Cancer. A Venus-Uranus alignment tends to enliven your interactions with friends or lovers. You can feel happily detached from a matter that once weighed you down. Friendships can bring surprises today, or could see a friend in a new light. It’s an excellent time for exploration on a social level or with new ideas, dreams, and plans. With Uranus strong as it is today, it’s wise to check in with yourself that you’re making choices, not merely reacting.
LeoToday’s energies are creative, enhancing your vision, dear Leo. A Venus-Uranus alignment at the top of your solar chart suggests some excitement, change, or stimulation–perhaps even some agitation–related to work, relationships, and reputation. Your creativity or uniqueness can be on show, or there can be a breakthrough in a project, venture, or relationship. Listen to creative inspiration stirring now. Connecting with a partner or sharing ideas with someone close to you can also be rewarding today. Feelings come on suddenly and pleasantly. The Moon moves into your resources sector today, reinforcing an emphasis on money or business matters. You’re in good shape for seeing the value of things, and you’re ready to put in the extra heart into what you’re doing.
VirgoIt’s a good time not only to recognize but embrace your need for change and progress, dear Virgo. A Venus-Uranus alignment in your solar ninth house can serve to awaken you to new ideas, interests, or experiences that encourage you to live more spiritedly–and it all happens organically or easily. This transit encourages a more open and free-spirited way of expressing yourself, although some care should be taken with Mercury retrograde and reaching a station tomorrow. It’s favorable for social or cultural events and studies. You can feel excited as you awaken to a new understanding. Rewards are excellent for opening yourself up socially and for taking more creative or personal risks. Unusual and interesting people are attracted now, and your enthusiasm can be catchy, inspiring others around you. The Moon moves into your sign and harmonizes with Venus today, and you can feel especially happy and comfortable in your own skin.
LibraYou’re turning your attention to areas of life that could use some change, updates, and a more progressive approach, dear Libra, with your ruler, Venus, aligning with Uranus today. The sudden urge to push boundaries can figure strongly now. Intimate relationships or feelings are likely to heat up suddenly, or this is a time when you awaken to feelings you’ve buried or denied. Keep an open mind and heart and see where they lead you. You may need to pull yourself out of your comfort zone a little to get what you want or deserve, but the results can be fantastic. It’s a time for being bold about taking care of yourself and your needs, but it may be best to save the more significant decisions for a time when you’ve processed your feelings. Mercury is about to change directions, and we may not have all the information we need. You may have a revelation about money or business, or about an attachment or dependency that you have.
ScorpioYou may find it difficult to tolerate routine today, dear Scorpio, as you can have the urge to push your usual boundaries just a little. You might discover areas of your life that would benefit from a more progressive approach or a breath of fresh air. Venus aligns with Uranus, the awakener, in your partnership sector today, and this can stir things up. You might crave changes or fresh, new approaches, particularly in your relationships. Or, this can be a time for attracting this kind of energy into your life through others–someone may be bringing change or new experiences into your life. It can be a time of spontaneous activities and strong or sudden attractions. If you’ve been unhappy with some aspect of your life, now is the time to work on making it better.
SagittariusThe need for change becomes evident with today’s Venus-Uranus conjunction, dear Sagittarius. This meeting of the planet of love and pleasure with the planet of change and excitement occurs in your health, work, and habits sector, and there may be some unexpected developments or interruptions that lead to new thinking or directions along these lines. You have a taste for something different, unique, and exciting. You’ll see where life can use some significant tweaking. A breakthrough in a relationship or with a work or health method is possible now as you open yourself to new approaches. Alternatively, you may meet someone special through the pursuit of your daily routines, health, wellness, or work. Tap into your intuition regarding making changes, as it’s trying to tell you something. Be sure you are choosing rather than reacting when you make decisions.
CapricornVenus and Uranus align in your romance and creativity sector today, dear Capricorn, inspiring you to make changes. As well, the Sun and Neptune meet in your communications sector, reinforcing your need for something more than ordinary or routine. If you’ve been sitting on feelings that need release, you’ll find a channel for expression now. Love can bring surprises today, and you might awaken to emotions you previously set aside or buried. The Venus-Uranus alignment helps you detach just enough to enjoy yourself more fully. Tap into your intuition to consider what needs changing. There can be romantic or creative excitement, and your vibrant, progressive approach to the world is appreciated today. You might capture the attention of people who hadn’t noticed you previously. Your usual inhibitions on a social or creative level may decrease, and you can feel pleasantly engaged or willing to take a small risk.
AquariusToday’s Venus-Uranus alignment can break down the walls of some inhibitions and help you tap into your intuition, dear Aquarius. You’re a little less attached to the past, and getting rid of something you no longer need is likely to feel far more liberating than uncomfortable. The need for more freedom in your personal life or routines is real. Excitement in your sector of roots, home, and family can prompt a spontaneous activity, whim, or decision to make spirited changes and improvements to your personal or domestic life. This can be a lively time for home improvement or for an open spirit with loved ones that encourages a fresh new approach to relating. Alternatives lead you to rethink old problems and concerns, particularly regarding living arrangements and conditions, as well as close relationships with loved ones. You want to do things a little differently today, and it’s a happy, rewarding choice.
PiscesA Venus-Uranus alignment occurring today can inspire you to make happy changes, dear Pisces, or it can bring forward-looking energy that inspires you. This transit occurs on the same day as a Sun-Neptune alignment in your sign and is further incentive to make improvements to your life. Others can bring delightful surprises to your life. It would be a good idea to keep your ears open, as you can hear something that inspires you to make essential changes. You are ready to start fresh, turn a corner, try new things, and approach your relationships differently. Pleasant surprises or even new friendships/love can result from short trips, errands, and learning pursuits. You might awaken to needs to expand your mind and your experiences. It’s a time for seeking out different ways to express yourself and connect with a higher purpose. There can be something published, expressed, or promoted that helps you turn a corner. Keeping in mind that Mercury is about to change directions, you can have some fun with this energy but avoid big moves or decisions, if possible.
