Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday holds the promise of new insight into relationships, interests, and projects, dear Aries. The tendency is to do a lot of analyzing and sorting things out, particularly with feelings and affections. You may be making sense of old relationships. Or, you may be reviving old projects and receiving news that prompts a new perspective on a past matter. You could be drawn to a past project or study with renewed interest, or you might discover that a current course of study or venture is no longer fulfilling you. Conversations and thoughts tend to revolve around satisfaction levels, love, or complicated social situations as Mercury and retrograde Venus head into alignment. You might learn something new that gives you a little more clarity on a matter that has confused or even haunted you. Still, it’s important to note that the picture may not be complete. So, while it’s a strong time to do a redesign or review, it’s better not to finalize things yet. Solving problems, particularly of the intellectual or mechanical variety, is in focus.
TaurusYour ruler, Venus, heads into alignment with Mercury today, dear Taurus. People can be seeking your advice, and you are coming across as especially open. However, others can’t seem to touch deeper matters with you right now with Venus retrograde. There is a hesitancy in you about digging down too deeply or opening up about things that truly matter just for the time being. Personal finances or personal possessions and questions of ownership can become a topic today. It’s a better time for review than it is for making important decisions about your assets, but don’t discard things coming to your attention now. Even if they require further thought or adjustments at a later date, this is a good time for analysis and review. Backtracking can involve going over matters from the past dug up recently, particularly surrounding love, feelings, pleasure, valuables, and money. You get a second chance or look at a project, purchase, or association, and relocating a lost item is not out of the question now. The Moon spends the day in your sign, and you’re a little more powerful and visible.
GeminiOthers are taking a particular interest in you and could be talking about you quite a bit today and tomorrow, dear Gemini. Mercury and retrograde Venus are coming to an alignment in your sign, and conversations tend to turn to you or revolve around you. While you’re a little more inclined to express yourself, someone else may be holding something back or hesitant. Alternatively, conversations or meetings can turn to unresolved matters, and you can get some strong reminders of the past. New information about an old issue can figure strongly now. While it’s an excellent time for rethinking and reevaluating personal plans and projects, it’s not the time to make final decisions. It may be better to consider possibilities and keep plans open since there is likely more to the unfolding story later on. Even with some signals crossing, your personal magnetism runs high, although you may not be expressing a lot of warmth in your communications, and could be focusing a little too much on the intellect. The Moon spends today in your privacy sector, and the need to unwind and decompress is strong, particularly with a New Moon about to occur in your sign.
CancerWith Mercury and Venus aligning today, dear Cancer, more information could surface about a matter that will help you make better decisions about the future. For now, however, process and digest things rather than finalize since Venus is retrograde and will continue in this fashion until June 25th. Nevertheless, it can be a busy day for thinking and analyzing. Conversations or musings can help illuminate the past in a meaningful way for you, and the focus is on love, feelings, and past relating patterns. While discoveries may be about affections or satisfaction levels, your ability to detach a little from emotions is what benefits you the most for the time being. Keep in mind that your mind is moving much faster than your heart, so you may want to avoid bringing up certain topics. This can be a busy time for thinking and analyzing.
LeoYou might learn something about someone from your past, or a conversation with a friend can quickly turn to the past, dear Leo. You’re more inclined to live in the mind than dig deeper today with Mercury about to align with retrograde Venus, and this can be very useful to an extent. Watch for talking ahead of yourself as your heart may not be ready to talk or know about everything that piques your mind’s curiosity! Today’s transits can stir up a desire to make sense of certain feelings or relationships, but you may not have the whole story. Take a fresh new route for expressing yourself and interacting with others by reviewing matters rather than rehashing. It’s a good time for considering whether you’re getting enough pleasure from your social life or current goals and projects.
VirgoYou might learn new information about an old matter today, dear Virgo, and while the picture may not yet be complete, you’re one step closer. Mercury, your ruler, is heading into alignment with retrograde Venus, and it’s an important time for reevaluating your projects and goals. You have an exclusive window into the past that helps you make better decisions for the future, but it makes sense to reserve judgment until the picture is complete. With Venus retrograde until late June, you may be dealing with temporary problems with career projects, your image, or relationships, or you may be returning to old projects and rounding them out. While you’re giving a lot of thought to your career and the path it’s taking, today is about looking back and analyzing. Keep things open and watch for racing ahead because your mind is curious–likely, your heart is not yet ready for it. Complications come into stronger focus today, but you can approach them in a new way as you perceive them from a different perspective. Keep a safe distance emotionally if you need to draw conclusions.
LibraA new perspective can see you redefining some of your beliefs, ideals, goals, and dreams this week, dear Libra. With Mercury and retrograde Venus heading into alignment, you might see which approaches or expectations you had in the past that sent you along the wrong path. Through conversations or musings, you can gain significant insight into mysteries from your personal history. Do consider that you’re likely living in the mind and temporarily overlooking the emotional side of matters today. Avoid letting your communications run ahead of you. Sharing knowledge with someone can be especially rewarding. Still, it’s important to keep conversations on a light level or to take extra time to process your feelings before making bigger decisions. With Venus retrograde, there is likely more to the story of your feelings and satisfaction levels, so while your assessments are valid now, things need to evolve further before you truly make sense of them.
ScorpioDiscoveries today are likely to be of an emotional, private nature, dear Scorpio, and the day promises to be busier than usual. Much thought can be given to the past now. A conversation might occur with a love interest/partner that quickly turns to the past, or a conversation with a love from your past might spark up. Whatever the case, feelings are a big theme today, and it’s very past-focused. Even if things seem roundabout, it seems necessary to illuminate where you stand and what you will take forward into the future. New and perhaps surprising insights into intimate matters can surface as you review, reassess, and process what it means to you now, as well as imagine what you’d like to change for the future. You’re in the position to play detective and might find clues that give you a new perspective on an old issue. Mental detachment can help objectivity, but consider that your heart may not be ready for where you’re going mentally or conversationally.
SagittariusLove, affections, feelings, or pleasure can be in focus today, dear Sagittarius, but try to avoid the trap of communicating and relating in patterns that no longer serve you well. Staying too rooted in old ways of approaching issues can lead to problems now. Look for improved methods of connecting so that you’re learning and reviewing rather than rehashing. Today is, in fact, quite strong for gaining a new perspective on an old matter. Opening your mind to another person’s perspective can broaden your vision, and you may be looking back on a situation with new eyes. If the ball seems to be in the other’s court now, recognize that it’s not about control or power. Instead, it’s about sharing the spotlight. Negotiations can figure strongly now, and it’s a time for being as fair as you can. Learning new things about a previous relationship can figure strongly for some, or there can be new clues that help you round out a story.
CapricornWith retrograde Venus heading into alignment with Mercury, dear Capricorn, there can be a stronger focus on your feelings from an intellectual standpoint. You may very well see where you stand, but do be aware that underlying matters can complicate what seems to be positive communications. Our minds may be way ahead of our hearts today, and conversations or thoughts might head places your heart isn’t ready to go. You might learn something surprising but useful regarding your work, however, or your feelings about your daily affairs, services, or job. Old matters or even people have a way of resurfacing now. You can resolve many problems through brainstorming and review with unique insight into whether your ventures, particularly those related to health or work and daily affairs, are genuinely fulfilling you. Conversations or information coming in today and this week can lead to a reevaluation of these matters.
AquariusConversations today tend to revolve around love, the past, and feelings or affections, dear Aquarius. The focus can be on trying to make sense of something intellectually. With Venus retrograde, the past is sure to be a big topic now, and this can be an illuminating time. However, consider that if something didn’t work in the past, it’s unlikely to work now. While you and others may be busy mentally, emotional distance can figure strongly now, or you become more aware of it. While your romantic life or feelings are complicated these days, some analysis and review can lead to interesting ideas and a new perspective. You may be questioning whether you’re deriving personal fulfillment or satisfaction from certain areas of your life, and clues to these things can emerge today and tomorrow. For some, this is about reconnecting with an old love or friend, and for others, it’s about learning something new about a previous relationship or your feelings.
PiscesConversations quickly turn to the past or areas of emotional dissatisfaction today, dear Pisces, as Mercury and retrograde Venus head into alignment. Love can be a tricky topic today, even if our intentions are good. You stand to gain new awareness or clues about a complicated matter. Much attention turns to unresolved relationship or comfort issues, and you’re now looking at old problems from a new perspective. New information can emerge, or strong memories prompt you to muse about the past. You’re inclined to analyze and intellectualize, but it’s important to note that your mind may be working much faster than your heart, and while curious, you may not be entirely ready for certain things. It’s a fine time, however, to analyze whether your current living conditions are serving you well. Be fair and nonjudgmental, but take your time processing everything. Understanding any unrest or lack of fulfillment you might have with current living conditions can figure strongly now, and it’s a good process.
