Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sector of work and self-care, dear Aries, and attending to your duties and routines is in the foreground. Today’s Venus-Saturn opposition can serve to highlight tensions or relationship problems. As excited as you may be about your leisure time or creative or romantic pursuit, responsibilities and delays can enter the picture, which can be time-consuming. Love matters can be disappointing, or you could come to an epiphany about a past relationship. Superficiality and social niceties can be particularly annoying now, and you may very well do better if you take some space for yourself. If there are criticisms to deal with, they’re frustrating, but they might also motivate you to firm things up to your advantage. It’s possible that you only need to get practical matters out of the way before getting back into the game. Let a building sense of feeling freer after you turn a corner guide you. Aim to examine burdens or fears that prevent you from loosening up.
TaurusA Venus-Saturn opposition today can challenge you to firm up your plans while also taking care of your need to boost your spirit, dear Taurus. Circumstances might remind you that while home and family life tend to be where your heart is at the moment, you need to take care of business as well. Responsibilities or problems that have been neglected or overlooked in the past have a way of surfacing for immediate attention. Aim to stick with your priorities and avoid worrying too much about what others think. Still, sometimes criticisms can lead to meaningful improvements, so don’t shut them out altogether. A balance is essential now, but if people criticize more than support you, aim to make yourself happy first and foremost. Stick with your priorities, but be honest with yourself about what may need revision. Fortunately, the Moon in your solar fifth house keeps your spirits high. You pay more attention to creating, sharing, and enjoying yourself, especially later today.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your solar fourth house, dear Gemini, and family activities, home life, and your need for comfort and familiarity take on more importance. Today’s Venus-Saturn opposition lies across your communications and transportation axis, calling your attention to a delay or the need to make a change or revision that consumes your time. A helpful strategy is to pay more attention to the details of your pursuits or get the job done while avoiding others’ unhelpful opinions. It may not be easy, but prioritizing makes sense! Still, be a little more careful of what you communicate today. It’s also important to consider that others are more sensitive to limits than usual. There can be some problems getting your message across, but it’s temporary.
CancerWith Venus opposite Saturn today, dear Cancer, there can be a realization or responsibility that temporarily puts a damper on your plans or spirits. There could be a disagreement about money or resources, or you might feel blocked or opposed by limits to your freedom to seek pleasure, make a purchase, or pursue a particular goal. If an epiphany comes now, look at your discovery from a practical angle, and detach as much as possible. It may be better to know where you stand than to nurse an illusion that will eventually expose itself as unreal. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, and especially once past the Venus-Saturn energy, you’re in a good position to diversify, share, and enjoy learning and connecting.
LeoWith Venus opposite Saturn today, dear Leo, you might feel blocked, limited, or reminded of responsibilities that get in the way of your personal goals. Someone might feel a little threatened by the attention you’re receiving elsewhere. Or you might view someone in your life as unnecessarily strict or unyielding. Recognize your own need for structure and rules in your relationships, and meet others halfway for best results now. If duty and pleasure seem to be at odds, you may need to strike a compromise. It’s certainly possible that there’s a delay to manage now, and objectivity is especially important in your dealings.
VirgoThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Virgo, bringing your emotions out of hiding and into the light. However, some tension in your solar chart along your health and wellness axis reminds you of the need to attend to duties and responsibilities. It can temporarily deflate or demotivate you, but you’re quick to pick yourself up. You might experience inhibitions or coolness in others, but avoid taking it too personally. Criticism is possible and likely over the top, but if it’s even a fraction true, it can lead to meaningful improvements. Priorities make themselves clear today! A project can become more demanding, but you’ll put the extra effort forth if it’s worth your time. Restructuring may be in order.
LibraThe Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, dear Libra, and slowing down makes sense. Another signal to take things easy is your ruler, Venus, opposing Saturn today. You may find it challenging to juggle your responsibilities and desires. Or, there can be conflicting feelings related to your social or love life. Try not to focus too much on whether someone is letting you down. Instead, give your responsibilities and duties their due attention so you can later pursue your pleasures with less guilt or distraction. If, instead, a project suddenly seems more demanding than it once did, assess whether it’s truly worth your time and the extra effort.
ScorpioThere can be a hurdle to clear today, dear Scorpio, with Venus opposite Saturn. Responsibilities to your daily affairs, errands, and other duties and tasks can increase or make themselves known, slowing you down or possibly even disappointing you. There could be discouraging feedback or a delay but keep in mind that as irritating as it may be, it might also motivate you to improve. You may need to put in extra work to get your duties out of the way, but you’ll be in a much better place once you do. You’ll feel more fulfilled once you do take care of your priorities, after which you can return to your pleasures and pursue them more heartily.
SagittariusWith the Moon at the top of your solar chart all day, dear Sagittarius, your responsibilities are strongly on your mind. As well, Venus opposes Saturn today, and there can be an obstacle to manage, or you could be dealing with critical or insensitive people. With this transit in play, there can be a disagreement or delay. Responsibilities to your daily affairs, errands, and other duties and tasks can increase or make themselves known. It may be best to watch for fixating on something you think you want, as you’ll likely discover that it’s not the answer to your questions. Instead, it’s better to channel your attention to fixing problems so that you can move on. Remember that as irritating as criticism or negative feedback can be, it might also motivate you to make improvements. You may need to put in extra work to get your duties out of the way, but you’ll be in a much better place once you do.
CapricornWith Venus opposing Saturn across your sharing sectors, dear Capricorn, a financial constraint or disagreement may emerge. Consider that the extra work you put into fixing mistakes can make a big difference in your future success. Fears about money or security can be triggered, but facing a reality and adapting to it can improve your life. Don’t let delays discourage you, as they often come at important times. An obligation, debt, or error may need your attention and can be frustrating, but fixing it can help you down the line. The Moon in your solar ninth house helps lift your thoughts and boosts your spirit.
AquariusWith a Venus-Saturn opposition today, dear Aquarius, a need for companionship or connection with others might clash with a tendency to want to go it alone or handle problem areas your own way. For example, someone may seem too carefree in contrast with you, as you take on all the burdens and responsibilities. Or, people may be getting in your way or demanding attention that you’d prefer to direct towards more practical tasks. Avoid criticizing or withholding. Attempting to restrict others is not the way to go, but getting the space you need to attend to your responsibilities may be necessary and well worth your time.
PiscesThe Moon spends the day in your solar seventh house, dear Pisces, and you tend to put more energy and heart into your relationships. Even so, today’s Venus-Saturn opposition can point to managing a reality check. If your heart isn’t in what you’re doing, you can feel under the weather. Mental and physical health are often linked, and especially so right now, quite possibly in a disruptive way. Delays might temporarily pull you away from the things you enjoy most doing. Past mistakes or unfinished business can surface, and handling a duty may be necessary before moving on. Aim to recognize the need to let something go or to make changes in existing projects if it helps you go forward lighter and happier. It may be necessary to deal with your responsibilities, and in fact, they can seem inescapable right now but don’t overburden yourself, either.
