Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
There can be some confusion or necessary distance from a problem today, dear Aries. However, a Venus-Pluto aspect is on the horizon and helps you through a healthy dose of self-honesty. You might also gain new insight into a relationship or business move. As the day advances, you can find yourself in good shape to focus on activities that promote emotional renewal. You might gain a better perspective on your financial picture as well as your relationships. Look to the talents and resources of others or a partner to see if these can benefit a business. Think strategically and draw on your imagination and experience/wisdom to better understand your connections. Something that has been buried regarding your relationships and feelings can emerge now for release. Of course, it’s up to you whether you’d like to share these findings.
Today’s energies can be on the diffuse side, dear Taurus, which you can use to your advantage by decompressing. However, as the day advances, your motivation and commitment increase. Your feelings about a person or even a project or idea tend to intensify pleasantly today, and you might decide to use this time to repair or enhance a relationship. Your negotiation skills are above par. You want to see eye to eye, and remaining sincere and honest at the same time makes it more worthwhile. You may be discovering hidden aspects of yourself through a relationship, and you feel stronger for the insights you’re making now. Others are putting their trust in you. If you want to express your commitment or passion, now is an excellent time to do so. You’re also coming across with more confidence. Excellent energy is with you today for harmonizing with an important person in your life. You’ll find that your energy is virtually limitless when you feel the magic of commitment.
With a Sun-Neptune minor challenging aspect active today, dear Gemini, aim to listen to any hunches or signals, from within or without, to get extra rest. Fuzzy thinking is possible. It can be challenging to see professional and public matters clearly. Use your imagination constructively or creatively. Self-nurturing and playing it safe continues to be beneficial today. There can be some confusion about your general direction today, but the Moon in your solar fourth house helps you take things easy rather than fight the tides. Still, a Venus-Pluto influence is approaching, coloring the second half of today, and this helps you to cut out the fluff so that you can focus. It’s about throwing yourself into what you love, and relationships can be consuming in a mostly positive way. Otherwise, there may be a project that you find uniquely absorbing and compelling that can draw you in. Research efforts can bring good results, and even if you don’t get somewhere, you enjoy the process. Doing some sleuthing is appealing now.
Conditions are not ideal for activities that require concentration and precision in the first half of the day, dear Cancer. You can be in a dreamy state of mind, finding it difficult to come back to earth. Consider spiritual, metaphysical, or creative activities now, if these are possible. If you can manage to focus your energies on something fun rather than routine, you can enjoy yourself. Later today, however, you’re in terrific shape for following a passion or strengthening a bond. Relationships improve with more focus, presence, and involvement. You’re making the best out of a situation now as Venus and Pluto head towards a harmonious aspect. Your confidence in your ability to resolve conflicts or get past obstacles may be part of how you’re making your good luck now! A connection made or a moment shared can be significant and meaningful. For some, this is about a project or creative work that you love, and you’re ready to pour your heart into it. There can be a desire to share a belief, dream, or tradition with someone you care about.
It can be challenging to know where to direct your energy in the first part of the day, dear Leo. There can be some sluggishness or lethargy, as there can be a vague feeling that you don’t know where to head. Even so, it’s better not to push yourself emotionally. You may be feeling a little out of step until you recognize the need to slow down and allow yourself time to process recent events, imagine, and dream. You might decide not to fight it and enjoy the freeform energy instead. Later today, you’re inclined to seek out more depth in your interactions or meaning to your activities. A Venus-Pluto aspect comes into play, and you’re in terrific shape for throwing yourself into a project or activity that you enjoy, especially ones related to family and home. This is a good day for looking at yourself and your needs or desires honestly and benefiting from what you discover. It can be an excellent time to recognize emotional blocks and find ways to move past them. Decisions improve as self-understanding increases.
The Moon spends another day in your sign, dear Virgo, and your emotional needs are in strong focus. While these needs may seem urgent, remind yourself that you have time to fill them, and in fact, get to know yourself better in the process. It can be challenging to follow a routine and to deal with routine matters in the first part of today. You may be swinging from seeing what you want to see to seeing what you fear things to be, particularly regarding a significant person in your life. Later today, you’re in a great place to learn something about yourself, a special person, or a project in your life. You have support for throwing energy into communication or creative project, and revealing dynamics can figure strongly in a close relationship. Conversations are vibrant and possibly also moving today. You might come up with a good strategy for handling a matter or for a creative endeavor.
A temporary dip in motivation levels can occur in the first part of the day, dear Libra, and it can be just fine if you treat is a simple interlude. Do watch as it can make you a little more vulnerable than usual to worry or stress. You are a psychic sponge right now, and you should try to turn it off so that you can focus on your priorities. You may not feel especially productive until later when a Venus-Pluto comes into play. This influence is incredible for focus. Tonight and tomorrow are excellent for gaining a new understanding of your resources and talents, and for personal presence and power. The more empowered you feel, the closer you get to your heart and your authentic desires. Your ability to strategize, and even to hold your tongue, brings the most rewards now. Your strength of character shines through, and self-improvement is ongoing. Jobs around the house, maintaining your belongings and valuables, and other such activities are gratifying.
Your higher ideals are in strong focus today, dear Scorpio. You’re zeroing in on your connection to the world through your community and friendships. As the day advances, it holds strong potential for attracting or enhancing a relationship, as well as for feeling supported and appreciated by friends and partners. Growing and improving your connections can be in focus, and you’re naturally drawn to mutually beneficial or pleasing social situations. Healing energy is with you today. You might choose to improve or build upon a unique project, or assess a problem and develop a strategy for resolving it. Your perceptive powers are in fine form, and you’re ready to put your heart into whatever moves you. It’s a generally good day for committing, particularly to a learning or communications project, or possibly to purchasing equipment. Boosting your inner self helps you to express yourself more creatively and from the heart. It’s a fine day for attracting positive energy into your life, especially as it progresses.
Responsibilities come into focus, and if you’re generally on top of things, this can feel good, dear Sagittarius. If you’ve been procrastinating, you might feel a little nervous until you get to work! Still, not all is as it seems today, so you may need to reserve judgment. As the day advances, however, you’re ready to go all in. Your passions and interests come into stronger focus. New insight into financial or security concerns can also emerge. You might see a matter of the past more clearly, and perhaps find a way to put it behind you. Desires are especially intense as you tend to keep them to yourself, so finding ways to release them, even in little ways, can work to your advantage. Emotional longings can be in strong focus these days, but today, you seem to understand them more than usual. There is also good energy for recycling or repurposing resources to transform them, and it can be satisfying to make the most of what you have.
A Sun-Neptune minor challenging aspect today suggests some listlessness and confusion, dear Capricorn. Still, with the Moon in your sector of spirit and adventure all day, you’re perfectly able to turn this around and get it to work to your advantage. Do watch that you’re not misquoted. You are especially alert later today, as you’re able to see what’s really going on under the surface of things, and the insights you gain now can be powerful–even instrumental. We’re heading towards a Venus-Pluto aspect that boosts your mood, powers of attraction, and determination. Offering your expertise to colleagues can open up great rewards for you, or you more fully enjoy contributing and sharing for the intrinsic rewards. Recent problems with others can be handled with greater ease and honesty today. You’re not inclined to sweep things under the rug, preferring to tackle issues at their root. You’ve been doing a lot of work on yourself, redefining who you are, and this impacts your relationships. Ideally, your close connections allow you to change and grow, but sometimes individual changes feel threatening to someone in your life. Now can be an excellent time to explain. Recognition as a team player works in your favor today.
There can be some lack of clarity with business or money matters today, dear Aquarius, and it’s best to avoid big decisions along these lines. It’s not an ideal time for meeting strict deadlines and schedules. Still, as the day advances, you’re in an increasingly better position to get things done. It’s quite easy to get caught up in an enjoyable pursuit with Venus and Pluto moving towards a harmonious aspect. This influence follows you into tomorrow, and you can be seeking something meaningful to put your heart into. With this motivation, you can accomplish and uncover a lot. You’ll find that the conviction behind your desires and ideas attracts support from others. Past good deeds can bring rewards to the present. You might thoroughly enjoy setting goals for yourself or coming up with fabulous business ideas or terrific strategies for long-term plans. You see value and priority more clearly than usual.
There is a tendency to meander or go in circles at times today, dear Pisces, but if you’re okay with not making clear progress for a moment, then you’ll do just fine. You’re likely to enjoy a building passion for an idea or a project later today as a Venus-Pluto influence comes into play. There can be intensely creative and romantic energies flowing now, and with this exotic energy, you could be attracting (or attracted to) a new idea or person. Or, a current project or relationship benefits from your undivided attention now. You may be feeling more confident as a result of your involvement in a team, or for contributions you make to a cause or group effort. Friends are supportive and intrigued by your point of view. A stronger sense of purpose or mission can fall into place.
