Today’s transits might temporarily confuse desires or frustrate actions, particularly if you’ve been taking on too many different things, and now you’re faced with some of the resultant chaos. You may feel a little rebellious about making nice with others or doing your errands and handling everyday affairs. Watch that in your haste you don’t make rash moves or statements.

This cycle can be a time of greater understanding of the more spiritual side of love or a time of making sacrifices in the name of love. Your affections are private or in a state of flux, but your compassion engages more fully, which can draw you to people who need help. Benefits can come through behind-the-scenes efforts. It’s an excellent time for enjoying some level of solitude and privacy, as well as for becoming very cozy with your inner world. Ideally, you gain a greater understanding of your past and your deeper feelings about recent events. Intuition is heightened, particularly with people, and so is sensitivity, so take special care of yourself during this period. Today, there can be nuisances that seem to clash with your independent streak. Impatience and changes of plans can be part of the picture, but they might also lead to interesting detours.

There can be much enjoyment of your career or the pursuit of long-term goals in the weeks ahead. You may be drawing upon your people skills more than usual in your work during this cycle. This transit sometimes coincides with rewards, awards, or relationship status changes.

With Venus transiting your solar sixth house, you’re in an excellent position to bring more harmony, pleasure, and warmth to your chores or routines. Today, if you feel restless, it’s best not to drop sudden truth bombs–a real inclination with assertive Mars and abrupt Uranus in challenging aspect. Instead, look for creative ways to spiff things up. If someone has been taking the lead in your life a little too often and you feel overruled, this may be a time when the matter comes to a head.

It’s a vital recharge point for you, particularly with your affections. You can get to your very heart now, gaining a fresh understanding of what you need from life regarding love, pleasure, comfort, and beauty.
