Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Aries, generating delightful energy for enhancing one-on-one relationships in the weeks ahead. You magnetize reasonable, helpful, and pleasant people into your life during this cycle that lasts until September 10th this year, or more pleasing, agreeable energy into existing partnerships. It’s a time for making peace with people. Especially favored now are negotiations, compromises, contracts, and making connections. It’s an excellent time for pairing up in some manner, seeking counseling or doing some of your own, making mutually beneficial deals, and enhancing or attracting a partnership. There can be a nagging sense that you’re not attending to practical details today with a Mercury-Saturn influence in play. Responsibilities can eat up a lot of your time, even if you’re only thinking about them, and perhaps especially so. Avoid expending more energy worrying about not doing something than it would take to get it done and put behind you!
TaurusYour ruler, Venus, changes signs today, dear Taurus, entering your work and health sector where it will stay until September 10th. This influence can bring more pleasure and harmony to your daily life, including your work or daily routines and health pursuits. You might enjoy getting your life in order, producing, organizing, and servicing. O, you could make pleasant contacts through your work or routines. In love relationships, it’s about making the connection work on a day-to-day level and showing your affection for others through helpful gestures. You feel more accomplished through cooperation and sharing, but do watch for glossing over problem areas in the weeks ahead. Today, you’re inclined to think a lot about an issue but may not be any better off for it after much to-do, so think twice about overthinking! It may be better to have a conversation in your head before you do so in person. If you still think it’s a good idea once you have considered all the possibilities, then express it.
GeminiVenus enters your solar fifth house today, dear Gemini, bringing graciousness, the power of attraction, an urge to interact, and real charm until September 10th. This chart sector rules self-expression, creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play, reinforcement, and even applause. It’s an easygoing, charming, and pleasant transit for you. Others appreciate you, and you more often follow your heart’s desire. You approach the world creatively and romantically and take more pleasure in leisure activities and hobbies. You have the power of attraction on your side. However, it can be challenging and perhaps exhausting to reach a compromise today, although not impossible! A difference of opinion may become too personal and may even bring you down for a while. It makes sense to focus on something else and let it go. While it can feel like a one step forward, two steps back kind of energy, you are likely gaining more than you realize.
CancerVenus moves into your solar fourth house today, dear Cancer, bringing more artistry and harmony to your family and home life in the weeks ahead. You are especially sensitive to your environment during this cycle that lasts until September 10th, and you might seek refuge from demanding situations or quiet time more often than usual. You can be particularly attached to the past and what’s familiar. Venus here can boost your relationships with family, roommates, or your own heart, as you become more comfortable in your own skin. Improved living conditions and arrangements may figure strongly during this period. Today, there can be a lot to think about, but not necessarily many answers, making patience a real virtue. In fact, it may be best to weigh options rather than engage in major decision-making. Try not to harp on issues that need more time to mature, as it can unnecessarily drag you down.
LeoVenus moves into your communications sector today, dear Leo, and will stick around there until September 10th. During this enhancing cycle, your curiosity about others can lead you to fun discoveries and possible opportunities. You’re bringing more charm and diplomacy to your communications. You might get happy news, or you could receive positive publicity and word of mouth. It’s an excellent time to harmonize with siblings, acquaintances, classmates, or neighbors. There could be purchases or gifts that help you to connect and learn. You are more charming and creative with your words, and love can be particularly mental and verbal during this cycle. You gravitate to things that improve your mind in the weeks ahead. Today, there can be many questions but no satisfying answers to match, mainly related to money and valuables or relationship matters. It may be best to weigh your options rather than force major decisions in these areas. Overthinking today can lead to too much time spent on issues that need more time to unfold.
VirgoVenus moves out of your sign and into your values sector today, dear Virgo, and will transit this area of your solar chart until September 10th. It boosts your powers of attraction related to money, gifts, favors, and valuables in the weeks ahead. Your appetite for luxurious or beautiful objects might also increase since building and collecting appeal to you more than usual. This is usually a status quo or stable position for relationships, affections, and money. Generally speaking, you are more patient with money and business matters now and can make the most of your resources. With Mercury in your sign, you are more inclined to live in the head, but today, an awkward aspect can lead you to dwell on the negative. You might spend too much time on issues that you can’t change, that are not yet fully developed, or that won’t be a concern for very long, and this is a bit of a waste if it doesn’t make you feel good. There can be concerns related to energy levels, work, routines, or health that weigh on your mind but do your best not to overthink for best results.
LibraToday, Venus enters your sign as it symbolically emerges from the darkness in your solar chart, dear Libra. This transit lasts until September 10th and is excellent for your appeal, confidence, and personal plans. In many ways, you can find that things play in your favor in the weeks ahead, and the power of attraction is with you. You are more comfortable in your own skin, and people tend to acknowledge you and your value. You might enjoy more decisiveness when it comes to your feelings and relationships. Today, you may encounter a need to improve or adjust something you thought was already complete, or there could be vague disappointments or waning motivation for something you’ve been working on or towards. Try not to overthink things. Obligations can eat up quite a bit of your day, so it makes sense to get ahead of your duties. It’s not a time for bold moves, but the day is fine for doing some moderate weighing of pros and cons.
ScorpioVenus enters the twelfth sector of your solar chart today, dear Scorpio, and will continue transiting there until September 10th. During this cycle, you can be in a letting go or preparatory stage on a social or romantic level. You may be dealing with private matters of the heart, or you take particular pleasure in their private life at this time. It’s possible you’re undecided or not ready to share your feelings with the world. The weeks ahead are good for enjoying some level of solitude or exploring your deeper feelings, as well as volunteering or helping others. It’s a time for paying special attention to your spiritual longings and needs. Today, personal obligations or the expectations of loved ones can weigh on your mind, and it can be difficult to relax and enjoy yourself in spots. You may be dealing with second thoughts that keep you from coming to a solid conclusion. It’s temporary, and you might only need to change your plans or adjust time expectations. Pausing sometimes gives you a chance to notice errors you may have overlooked otherwise.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Sagittarius, and it’s a time of the lunar month to pay a little more attention to yourself for a couple of days. However, Venus enters your social sector today, and until September 10th, you’re likely to find more enjoyment and satisfaction from friends and focusing on happiness goals. Friends are receptive, and cooperation is more important than ego strokes during this cycle! Sharing your talents or expertise with others can yield excellent results. Your tastes are for the new, different, and progressive. You better understand the benefits of relaxing and taking some time off from responsibilities. The desire for peace with others is strong, but you’re also on board for making changes that improve your connections. Today is not ideal for finding open channels for expressing yourself. You could find yourself in between others’ dilemmas, whether this is about mediating or overthinking problems. Make a plan for attending to your responsibilities so that you can rest easier.
CapricornVenus enters your solar tenth house today, dear Capricorn, where it will transit until September 10th. You may have to work a little harder to attract the things, people, and circumstances you want in your personal life temporarily, but reputation and career can benefit greatly. People in authority are especially receptive to you now, possibly leading to advances or rewards. Romantic opportunities, or chances to socialize and make mutually beneficial connections, can emerge through business, or you simply enjoy the work you do and the impact you make more than usual. Your heart is with your long-term goals, and it’s a generally good time for forming or developing business relationships. Today, there can be a part of you that feels especially free and happy, wanting to focus on the positive, new, and untried, while another part is worried about the downsides or practicalities.
AquariusVenus begins transiting your solar ninth house today, dear Aquarius, and until September 10th, your ideals in friendship and love are in stronger focus. It can be a time for exploring and enjoying new experiences and ideas. Intuition improves as you pull out from inside yourself and let things flow. You are attracted to others who have an interesting perspective to offer you. You want to expand your knowledge and enjoy varied activities in the weeks ahead. This Venus transit is supportive in a general sense as it naturally enhances your feelings and charisma. Today, the need to be frugal, a reminder of a duty, or a feeling of being limited could undercut your positive outlook or conversations. Or, it may prevent you from getting as close or intimate with someone as you’d like. It can be a thoughtful day, and quite excellent for making adjustments, but if your mind frequently wanders off to stressed places, then it would be wise to treat the source of your concerns. Your instincts to wait out a particular decision are likely on point.
PiscesVenus begins its transit of your intimacy sector today, dear Pisces, and will transit this area of your solar chart until September 10th.

You tend to gravitate to more focused or in-depth projects. Today, try not to overthink things but do weigh the pros and cons. Communications may be blocked in some way, and you are less likely than usual to share your ideas, possibly second-guessing them. Try to keep a healthy perspective. You’re inclined to juggle different topics, worries, and concerns, making concentration on priorities a real challenge now. You may find it better to wait out a decision if you’re feeling a little stuck between alternatives.
