Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
In the first half of today, your faith and compassion are strong, dear Aries, but possibly in a misguided way with a Venus-Neptune square occurring in your sectors of faith. There can be some feeling of a letdown if your expectations of a project or person are (or have been) unrealistic. Or, you can experience a deflated feeling revolving around others’ opinions and belief systems, as you could be frustrated that certain people lack the same kind of understanding of a situation that you have. It’s not the best time for important financial transactions or clarity in love relationships. However, putting some illusions aside can be healthy as you make room for more realizable goals. You are unlikely to be as productive as you’d like to be, but if you stumble upon an opportunity to rest, it’s a good time to do so. It might also help to let go of the need to know or fully understand your relationships for the time being.
In the first half of the day, relationships can be tricky, dear Taurus. You may be feeling high one minute and low the next. The trick is to keep expectations of others at the human level! Your ruler, Venus, in a challenging aspect with Neptune can cloud your vision temporarily, and it might also play with your mood, motivation, and drive. Areas of life that may be up in the air or unclear include friendships, boundaries in your relationships, work, and intimacy. Questions of who’s in your corner can be raised now, or there may be blurred boundaries with someone you care about. It may be best to reserve judgment and observe more closely as events unfold. The good news that as you identify problem areas, you’re making room for new and improved goals and turning your focus to those things that matter the most. The day progresses far more purposefully, or at the least, you feel more directed and confident.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Gemini, and you’re prioritizing your emotional needs. In the first half of the day, you may be facing evasiveness in others that confuses you, or a similar feeling that something’s up in the air can play with your mood and spirits. You may be frustrated with what’s been left unsaid. It’s possible that a lack of general direction may be negatively impacting a relationship, or that uncertainty about your path or career matters can drag you down. Living up to an ideal is tricky! Your public image can be subject to ups and downs. The primary key to enjoying today involves letting go of too-high expectations–of yourself, another person, or a relationship itself. Consider that a redirect now might send you on a detour that’s completely worth it in the end. It may not be easy to see others clearly today, most notably when you’re too personally involved–objectivity is missing. Still, if you strive to enjoy the moment without borrowing from the future, you can have some fun today, particularly on a creative level.
With today’s Venus-Neptune square, wishful thinking can cloud your view, dear Cancer. It’s hard to make room for and enjoy your work with dreams and fantasies filling your mind. If motivation levels are waning and restlessness takes over, you’re sure to tire of the mundane or routine in your life quickly. Relationships are not straightforward now, or you may be wondering where you stand on a matter, but there are more questions than answers temporarily. This week holds good energy for revisiting old ideas and changing plans in happy ways, but ignoring your needs for inspiration can lead to problems. If you’re overcrowding your mind with unrealizable goals and they’re interfering with what you’re doing now, consider putting them behind you to make room for dreams that genuinely encourage you. Watch for having your blinders on, picking and choosing which cues to believe and which to ignore, and resolve to nourish your spirit more attentively going forward. The Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, suggesting you do need some respite from the usual routine.
Escapism or procrastination can take many different forms today, dear Leo, and it can be hard to know where to direct your energy. You could get the vague feeling that you don’t know where you stand. With a Venus-Neptune square active, it can be all too easy to pick and choose which cues to see and which to overlook, but this can lead to disappointment. There can be a veil over your eyes when it comes to your relationships or money matters, and perhaps some blurred boundaries or uncertain feelings. It’s difficult to be objective now. Explore different ways to enjoy yourself, but avoid pinning your hopes on impractical ventures or elusive people right now. Remind yourself that you’re the one who has the power to create your own happiness. Once you let go of unreasonable expectations, you’ll get into a far better place to enjoy your day. The Moon spends today in your friendship sector, encouraging you to seek out happy connections. This gets far easier as the day advances!
Events or feelings happening now can remind you of the need to draw boundaries, dear Virgo. Venus forms a square to Neptune, and the desires of a significant other can be a mystery, and not necessarily in a good way! Or, you may be pinning so much of your hopes in someone that you forget that you’re the one in charge of making yourself happy. In truth, it can be a little tricky accepting that happiness is found within and not outside of you. Emotions and affections can be hard to make sense of right now, so do your best to hold off on drawing up conclusions. Aim to return to practical problems on a day when you’re more ruled by logic and reason than by complicated emotions and expectations. It can feel inconvenient to face reality about a person or situation right now, but in the long run, it can save you a lot of time and energy. The Moon continues its transit of your solar tenth house, encouraging you to formulate goals and plans.
Today’s energies are good for new ideas and inspirations, dear Libra, but a Venus-Neptune that colors the first half of the day can stir up some confusion. This aspect plays with your usually excellent ability to see things objectively. On some level, you may be attempting to feed previously held beliefs about someone or a situation and, in the process, not honestly facing reality. When it comes to facts and figures, you may need to pay extra attention to avoid oversights for now. With people and the non-material world, on the other hand, it may be better just to let things flow as they will and keep your emotional distance until you see things more clearly. Avoid half-hearted commitments. Feeling a tad drained of energy may very well stem from wavering motivation and emotions. After all, wrestling with doubt or feelings of discontent can be exhausting! Consider, too, that you’re a psychic sponge right now, and you have to learn when and how to turn it off so that you can concentrate on your own path and health. Take a break when you can, and aim to tune out unhealthy, undermining distractions.
A Venus-Neptune aspect can color the first half of today with some restlessness or confusion, dear Scorpio. Situations may be iffy, or others may be vague and giving off confusing signals. You may not feel close enough to someone or your heart now! You may not feel on solid ground with friends and lovers or practical matters, and while you’re typically very perceptive, wishful thinking can cloud your vision. Don’t let this transit convince you to borrow from the future, whether it’s making a purchase beyond your means or investing emotions and energy into something unlikely to pan out. Tap into your empathy and compassion, but avoid over-idealizing someone, something, or a situation. As the day advances, you can feel increasingly more in charge. You’d prefer to pour your energy into things that you believe in fully as the Moon transits your intimacy sector.
Distractions could create a bit of chaos in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, as it’s colored by a Venus-Neptune square. It can be difficult to communicate your desires right now, but it’s best not to wait for others to guess them, as it can lead to frustration. It may not sound like fun, but filling your own needs can improve your mood since it keeps you focused and independent. If someone joins in, then it’s a bonus. Wishful thinking is useful if it inspires you or motivates you to go after what you want, but if it only serves to leave you wanting, then you should probably let it go and get on with your day. Still, frustrations now may point to the need for inspiration or special attention to nourishing your spirit. If this is the case, resolve to feed your needs for more inspired living in small doses going forward. The day feels more purposeful as it progresses.
Imagination takes on more power and influence than usual in the first half of today, dear Capricorn, and if you use it for relaxing or creative activities, then you benefit. Still, the tendency can be to pin your hopes on something unlikely to transpire with a square between Venus and Neptune active. You might watch for making half-hearted commitments or statements as moods are changeable and our vision may be a bit off. Aim to get in touch with your real needs rather than chase whims. Feelings of discontent or longing can be vague, and whims might mask the things you are honestly missing. Keeping expectations of yourself, others, relationships, and situations reasonable is important, or else you can be vulnerable to disappointment. As the day moves on, however, more purpose and focus are with you. You have a sense for taking care of business.
A Venus-Neptune square coloring the first half of the day makes it challenging to assess the value of people and things objectively, dear Aquarius. Self-discipline can be lacking, or you could have difficulties understanding your priorities. You might end up chasing a pipe dream or investing emotions, energy, or money into something that fails to satisfy. There might also be a small disappointment with a friend if wires get crossed or there is an error of omission. It may be best to put off spending and lending just for the time being. Uncertainty doesn’t always feel great, but letting go of a burning need to define things or to be “in the know” can help you a lot now. If a plan or goal now seems not quite as achievable, it might only need some refinements. However, if it’s just not serving you well, it may be time to make room for one that does. The remainder of the day feels comfortable for the most with the Moon harmonizing with your sign.
The tendency in the first half of today is to nurse a dream, ideal, or expectation that is perhaps unrealistic, dear Pisces. Your feelings are complicated, and you can experience some ups and downs. Avoid quick band-aid style fixes in your relationships if it means you must mislead or gloss over a glaring problem. You could be misjudging the value of a person, circumstance, or material item with Venus forming a square to Neptune in your sign. It may be best to look within for inspiration. Getting in touch with your real needs and wants is your best bet for combatting discontent or restlessness. Looking outside of yourself for something that you imagine will make you happier or more fulfilled is a wild goose chase, and might even lead to more profound feelings of discontent. The urge to escape specific responsibilities should be nipped in the bud, too. Ultimately, putting these things off will end up costing you more. As today advances, you’re likely to feel far more comfortable.
