Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
With Venus and Chiron aligning in your sign today, dear Aries, you might discover that the path to empowerment is through helping others. The more you open your heart, and the more you accept, the better life gets. Your ability to heal and understand is high, and this may be attracting others to you today. Personal confidence is about letting go of worrying about what others expect of you and simply expressing yourself naturally and letting the chips fall as they may. Your unique style shines now, even if you do not mean to attract attention to it. Today is also good for others’ involvement. It’s a great day for networking, connecting, group activities, new projects, and idea creation. You can present original and unique ideas in an attractive package right now, and you might want to take advantage of this energy.
With Venus in your privacy sector these days, dear Taurus, you’re likely doing some soul-searching regarding your feelings, or you need extra space to understand them and process recent events. Venus aligns with Chiron today, prompting a compelling urge to heal and move on. There can be a trigger or other potent reminder of an open wound — something from your past for which you didn’t receive closure, for example. Self-honesty now can open you up to opportunities to heal. The inner teacher in you emerges, and you have tremendous insight and experience to share with those willing to listen. Your own perhaps painful experiences have taught you much, and you could be helping others with similar problems. When your lovely ruler, Venus, and healer Chiron come together as they do today, you have the chance to better understand what and who is most valuable to you. This can benefit your relationships with yourself and a special person in your life, as well as your financial or practical worlds. Also today, educational, travel, and other mind-expanding activities can thrive, or opportunities for these things can present themselves, possibly as money or funding comes in.
Venus and Chiron come together today, dear Gemini, and this can present great opportunities for personal discoveries. You might thoroughly enjoy helping someone through practical aid or guidance. Emotionally, you are brave and willing. You may get the chance to start fresh in friendship as you reach a new level of understanding or awareness that takes things to a new level. Venus and Chiron can create a certain “honesty magic” that helps break through layers in our relationships. Your approach to relationships is fresh and new, and your generosity of spirit and willingness to be vulnerable are the strongest factors in your personal appeal at the moment. You may find that as you seek out emotional satisfaction and wholeness, people in your life, even in your networks, can lead you in the right direction. As well today, Mars in your sign connects with Pallas, and you can make good use of this influence by doing something creative, and perhaps venturing away from the usual routine. You can be feeling especially confident about creative work, and you can be industrious and resourceful now. Friendly gestures and communications from others lift your spirits to new heights.
Opportunities to grow, learn, and heal emerge today, dear Cancer, as Venus and Chiron align. This yearly event has been occurring in your spirit sector in recent years, but this time around, it’s your career, reputation, responsibilities, and goals that are most influenced. It’s also a good time for recognizing the need to improve and grow in your business pursuits. A humble approach does wonders for your professional life and reputation now, as well. At the same time, your willingness to think outside of the box can be invaluable. You’re bringing something very special and unique to the table, and you may get the opportunity to showcase this a little today. Repairing or enhancing relationships with authority figures and business associates may be possible now. Also today, a Mars connection suggests that if you’re working on something behind the scenes or independently, this can be a strong time for really going at it. You are thinking both resourcefully and intuitively.
With Venus and Chiron coming into alignment in your solar ninth house, dear Leo, you are braver about expressing yourself, and you’re drawn to things that need to improve, grow, and develop. People coming into your life or those who are already in place may be catalysts for relating and connecting more openly and confidently. This is a time for opening your heart, as it leads to chances to heal and resolve problems. A Mars aspect also in effect today suggests it’s an excellent time for being with people, and particularly giving or sharing something of yourself with others. Grab any opportunities to make contact and to do something a little off the beaten track as these can encourage interesting ideas. Someone’s unique perspective may inspire you, or you might be the one doing the inspiring! You could find yourself developing a rather intense craving for meaning and belief in something greater than yourself, and you champion free thinkers and encourage others to find their own personal philosophies. This is the time to believe in the power of positive thinking and manifestation.
With Venus and Chiron coming together in your solar eighth house, dear Virgo, the chance to really dig deep and get to the heart of a relationship or private matter can arise. It’s a time for emotional repair, healing, and deep understanding. It’s also a fine time for discovering what or who you value and for such things as research and analysis with an extra dose of intuition working on your side. Emotional honesty is important now, and fortunately, it comes more easily than usual. You are courageous but also very sensitive in the face of new discoveries, even if they seem to touch on a soft spot. In fact, you may be going right for that soft spot since the desire to repair is strong. Another influence today is excellent for putting your talents and skills to beneficial use. Great energy for strategy, planning, seeing patterns, and developing methods is with you, particularly related to work, business, and finances.
With Venus and Chiron heading into alignment today, dear Libra, emotional matters thrive, although an old wound may reopen in the process! This influence can bring a relationship matter or sensitivity to your attention. You are open and generous, and others are attracted or drawn to you as a result. You may be helping someone through a difficulty or vice versa. This is a good time to recommit to a healing process, relationship, or improved attitude related to relationships. Also today, you can find many reasons to feel encouraged and positive about the future with a Mars-Pallas connection. Some of you could pair up with someone in a shared creative pursuit, or meet a person who brings nice energy into your world. Warm and positive vibes are with you for personal expression, problem solving, and enjoying the company of others. You can be filled with initiative at this time.
A Venus-Chiron alignment occurring today brings an open-hearted and sincere interest in making improvements, dear Scorpio, particularly related to your work, everyday routines, chores, and health or self-care programs. This is an excellent day for your relationships, too. You are open and generous, and you radiate healing energy. There can be a new beginning with someone or the chance to start fresh with a positive attitude. Others may be turning to you for help, support, or advice, and you are particularly willing to come to their aid, especially on practical levels or with information. You can experience a compelling attraction to alternative ways to heal and strengthen yourself. If bad habits or health have been a problem recently, this can be a time of increased sensitivity to imbalances. Also today, your independent side is emphasized, but you’re also wanting company and cooperation. This makes it especially important to know when to turn it on and when to turn it off, depending on who you’re dealing with and when!
Today’s Venus-Chiron alignment stimulates more willingness to be vulnerable, which can help enhance sharing with a friend or lover, dear Sagittarius. An open approach leads to opportunities for a fresh start. For some, this can be a time for making resolutions or reaching a turning point in a relationship regarding forgiveness and understanding. If you’re not in the position to spend time with someone, consider expressing yourself through creative outlets. Finding release through fantasy or imaginative undertakings can figure strongly now, as well, and can be quite rewarding. Another aspect in play today is excellent for productive cooperation or collaboration, so that if you want to get something important done, you may want to partner up and combine your talents. It’s a good day for being with others in general, even if you don’t have a project to complete. Friends can be especially open with you, and this gives you a warm feeling. Problems seem a little easier to solve right now, possibly because you’re enjoying the process of looking for solutions.
With Venus and Chiron in alignment today, dear Capricorn, it’s an excellent time for a new beginning or a refreshing moment with family or in your private life. Typically difficult or tricky matters may be easier to confront with this aspect forming at the bottom of your solar chart in your sector of home and family. You and perhaps people around you are all the more psychically open, and feelings that may normally be hard to access can emerge with greater ease. While the need to belong and feel nurtured can be a soft spot right now with Chiron in this area of your chart, identifying and facing this helps move you toward possible solutions. You’ll have years, in fact, to explore sensitivities and vulnerabilities on these levels, but today can give you most pleasant hints of it. As well, a strong aspect occurs for work efforts, support from superiors, reputation matters, and any project that benefits from you taking the lead. There can be a new sense of optimism about the future and a greater love for making plans, as a feeling of direction and purpose is very welcome in your life right now.
With Venus and Chiron in alignment in your solar third house today, dear Aquarius, it’s a time for a humble approach to communications which leads to opportunities to bond and connect with others. Talking opens up doors, and in fact, even though there is more sensitivity than usual now, with openness, healing becomes possible and even likely. Part of you may not want to “go there” if something seems sticky or messy emotionally, but this alignment of planets presents one of the best opportunities to do so with success or mostly happy results. People may be seeking out your words of wisdom, and when you feel needed this way, you are at your best. Today is also excellent for a new beginning of sorts in a relationship or with a learning program or personal interest. All in all, it is a potentially strong day for getting things done. You may want to work independently, but you have quite a bit of motivation, particularly related to creative projects and endeavors. You are especially industrious and come up with inventive ideas and practical solutions. It’s also a good time for personal magnetism.
Venus and Chiron coming together in your resources sector today sets up wonderful energy for identifying what you truly want and value, dear Pisces. This process is often more challenging than it seems, but we have many distractions going on around us that can take us away from our hearts in this respect, and this aspect can help not only to open our hearts, but to practice self-honesty. Of course, assessing value can help you in the material world, benefiting financial planning and purchases, and in your emotional life as well as it can bring about new awareness in a relationship. You can benefit greatly from natural or earthy activities that renew your connection to the world around you or the world of the five senses, which help heal, cleanse, and renew you. If you’re feeling especially sensitive about your worth or value in others’ eyes (which, by the way, can frequently be on the table in coming years with Chiron in your solar second house as a long-term guest), aim to deal with this bravely. Also active today is a Mars-Pallas trine that reinforces the strength of your convictions. It’s a good idea to try to circulate or follow up on recent contacts.
