Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
It can be a challenge to sort between ideas and information that are relevant today, dear Aries, with Mercury opposite Jupiter. It’s best to avoid going overboard and instead aim for quality over quantity. Once over this hump, it’s a fine day for your imagination as well as for forgiving, resting, and releasing stress as Venus and Neptune form a sextile. You might decide to do something creative, physical, or otherwise tension-relieving now. Giving out the kind of approval and affection you’d like to receive is a good idea now. Energies are wonderful for letting go and moving on. Promoting peace and harmony seems more important than anything by day’s end, and is mutually beneficial. This can also be a fine time for intuiting new ideas about how to handle your finances, but you might also be attracted to beautiful or expensive objects and comfort foods.
You may be tempted to see a matter in a big way that may not deserve the attention today, dear Taurus. The tendency to think in big terms and to fantasize about ideal scenarios is strong, especially with money and relationships. It makes sense to keep a healthy level of skepticism with a Mercury-Jupiter aspect dramatizing the ordinary, but do aim to enjoy a healthy stretch of your imagination. Today can be great for making personal changes as your values and interests are evolving, as well as for new ideas and visions, as long as you keep in mind that important details may be missing for the time being. A Venus-Neptune sextile today is very helpful as it tunes you into the subtle or otherworldly elements of life, and your understanding of others, yourself, and your purpose skyrockets as a result. Helping someone can lift your spirits, and the spirit of friendship dominates.
Disagreements can happen about the most trivial of matters today, dear Gemini, with Mercury in your sign forming challenging aspects, although they are likely to be about something deeper. Instead of listening, you and another may be competing for the floor when it comes to sharing your ideas. Enthusiasm runs high, but the day’s energies are not fabulous for genuinely being heard and understood. A partner may not be on board with your personal plans, but you have to do what feels right. There can be great ideas that come from sudden realizations, although they’ll need more definition before putting them into motion. Fortunately, a Venus-Neptune aspect today can boost your professional and public appeal. You might come to a compassionate understanding of matters that have previously frustrated you–it’s time to let go of anger so that you can move forward. While it’s a potentially brilliant day for creativity, it’s better for envisioning something than producing it in physical form.
If you have too much on your plate these days, dear Cancer, it may start to wear you down today as Mercury opposes Jupiter in the background of your solar chart. As enthusiastic as you may be, do be extra careful that you don’t add more to your life if you’re already swamped. Opening your mind to possibilities is a good thing, so enjoy the optimism of the day and allow yourself some far-out dreaming. Locking something down may be best saved for a clearer day. It’s a fine time to show others your support by encouraging them to open up to you. With a harmonious aspect between Venus and Neptune, forgiveness and grace are in abundant supply. You may want to take a chance on love and friendship with a kind gesture or expression. Imagination is heightened, and inspiration can be found through friends and non-routine experiences.
This is a fine time for considering a broader range of possibilities, dear Leo, but not the best time to lock something down. Sometimes a good mood can lead to some overestimation or taking on too much, and a Mercury-Jupiter opposition makes this kind of thing more possible today. You may need to watch for exaggeration. For some, there might be drama in your social circle, although conversations with friends can be especially revealing. A Venus-Neptune sextile is also active, helping you to see the beauty in the ordinary. It’s a beautiful time for self-discovery as well as the development of a close relationship. You are in the position to see matters in a compassionate light, more so than usual. There can be a visionary quality to your career or business efforts now. You’re likely to engage an audience, group, or important person.
With a Mercury-Jupiter opposition today, dear Virgo, speaking or promising something too soon can backfire. The tricky balance between your personal life and outside responsibilities can be in focus. While this is a time for thinking in big terms, you’ll also feel the pinch if you’ve been overshooting or expecting results too soon. A Venus-Neptune sextile helps smooth things over. There can be an almost psychic rapport with someone significant in your life. The key now is to attract through gentleness and warmth, even if you rather naturally maintain some emotional distance or an air of mystery. Compassion and understanding are in strong force today, and a healthy dose of these can help boost a connection. It’s also an excellent time to explore a new interest or topic.
It can be challenging to see the bigger picture without first dealing with some distractions or frustrating details today, dear Libra, but an overview is what you’re seeking now. Even so, it’s too easy to miss important details and to pay more attention to irrelevant ones! This is due to Mercury’s challenging aspects today. While you should watch for holding on too tightly to opinions, this is a strong day for generating new ideas and for putting faith in your long-term plans. Allowing mysteries unravel at their own pace instead of attempting to rush things may be the answer today, and a Venus-Neptune harmonious aspect helps this along. The gentler side of your nature emerges with this influence, and others especially enjoy being around you. As well, there can be good intuition for work, health, and research or analysis.
Thinking can be on the overindulgent or slapdash side today with Mercury in opposition to Jupiter, dear Scorpio, but if you aim to stretch your mind without fully committing to your ideas, it can be a great exercise. You may reach a far-out idea before discovering the truth, especially regarding a financial or intimate matter, so aim to take your time before making big decisions. At the heart of this is likely a strong desire to make happy changes and improvements. Also active today is a Venus-Neptune aspect that encourages you to let go of negative or harmful thoughts. Love opportunities can emerge, and it can be a creative, romantic time for some. You are more intuitive about people and especially sensitive to their feelings. A gentle approach brings rewards. It’s also an excellent time for creating, writing, and making art or music, or for appreciating and enjoying original art, theater, writing, and music.
Mercury opposes Jupiter in your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and you could be facing some opposition or dealing with a partner who is seeing things very differently than you. Keep in mind that although it could be frustrating, it might also be a chance to learn through your differences and to discover new motivation to get past obstacles. Accepting and enjoying differences with significant people in your life is key to this. Be sure not to rush decisions. Helping you with this is a Venus-Neptune influence, encouraging you to let things flow naturally rather than push to make things right. Connections with others tend to be enhanced, and you may be experiencing some form of psychic rapport or communication. Your social life can be warm and comforting today, and it’s a good time for promoting peace, and possibly beauty, in the workplace. You might take particular pleasure in offering your help or services today.
Today’s Mercury-Jupiter opposition can point to some frustrating vacillation, dear Capricorn, but might lead to some interesting new ideas. You might find that letting go of the pressure to come to a conclusion or decision improves everything! Watch for a tendency to make a whole lot out of nothing, however, as it’s easy to do with this influence. Someone might call you on a responsibility that you’ve yet to fulfill. Plans made now are probably impractical. However, if you concentrate on the ideas themselves, this can be a strong time to come up with grand ideas that have true merit–they simply need refinement later. A Venus-Neptune aspect also active today can point to the ability to soothe and heal through your communications. Your perceptions heighten, and this allows you to understand others on a whole new level.
This is a time when it can be difficult to sort between fact and fiction, dear Aquarius, as communications may be rushed or exaggerated. You may be seeking out more space and freedom or a change of scenery to keep your mind fresh. While it’s essential to keep your perspective and a healthy level of skepticism today, but you might enjoy the mental exercise. Let your mind wander from time to time before you get back to the task at hand, or you could end up feeling quite restless. A Venus-Neptune aspect can encourage sympathy for the underdog or stronger compassion for people in your life. Helping someone out can be rewarding. Today is strong for helping out family members, offering an ear, and for mending broken fences with others. Your appreciation for people in your life increases as the day advances.
Restlessness may interfere with concentration today with Mercury forming several challenging aspects, dear Pisces, and tensions now mostly result from overblown expectations or a feeling of being overwhelmed by choices. Professional goals might clash with personal ones with Mercury opposite Jupiter across your career and home sectors. Aim to latch onto new ideas that keep you feeling enthusiastic, but avoid running with them before you’ve given them more thought. A Venus-Neptune aspect also active today can be most helpful, encouraging understanding even if the words aren’t on the nose. It’s a beautiful time for feeling good about yourself and your relationships. Allow your sentimental and gentle nature to emerge — own it, appreciate it, and express it unapologetically.
