Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus enters your solar fourth house today, dear Aries, where it will stay until September 6th. In the month ahead, you might find more joy in your family and home life or enjoy more entertaining and pleasurable energy in your domestic world. You are a little more protective with your heart, tending to stick to the familiar and secure rather than venture out with your heart on your sleeve. Some hesitancy and caution when it comes to love, the pursuit of pleasure, and money are standard with this cycle. Real estate matters could be favorable now. Today’s atmosphere could be a tad chaotic, and essential details are likely to be missed if you scatter yourself. Confusing conversations or subtle interactions can leave you wondering, mainly related to love and friendship. You may be suffering from “wandering mind” syndrome, but as the day advances, you’re likely to find it easy to latch onto something special or inspirational. The Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, and you’re more interested in interacting and connecting.
TaurusYour ruler, Venus, moves into your communications sector for a stay of a month, dear Taurus. You’ll be taking more pleasure in your daily affairs, connecting with friends, exploring mental interests and topics, or learning new things. You’re coming out of a lengthy Venus cycle that emphasized stability and security in your social and love relationships. Now, you’re moving into a more sociable, curious, and chatty phase. You’re bringing more charm and diplomacy to your communications. Also today, your mind may wander, and it can be challenging to focus in spots. Or, confusion surrounds a connection, and it leaves you wondering about your next step. You may dream up something that turns out to be quite helpful, but tasks that require clear thinking and concentration may not fare exceptionally well right now. There can be some temporary disconnects, or something is up in the air. You may need to contend with some fuzzy thinking or unclear instructions. However, if you apply your imagination well, you could be looking at problems from a new angle, and this can add some value to your day.
GeminiVenus leaves your sign today after an extended stay, dear Gemini. With this transit that lasts until September 6th, you’re in a better position to enjoy yourself without self-consciousness. The focus is on building your resources. Love is more about security and comfort, and affections stabilize as you value simpler pleasures. Getting along well with others can be one way to boost your business or income, and relationships already in place can benefit from steadier energy. This transit helps steady your emotions in the weeks ahead. It also stimulates your practical eye and sense of balance. A minor conflict between your planetary ruler, Mercury, and Neptune today suggests that perceptions can be a little fuzzy, possibly because wishful thinking is clouding your view of a situation. There can be a slightly disorganized and possibly chaotic atmosphere around you to navigate, and tuning out distractions may be useful. You could find that conversations seem to loop or eventually feel pointless, getting nowhere for the time being. Aim to tap into your imagination for positive pursuits.
CancerVenus enters your sign today, dear Cancer, after spending an unusually long time in the sign just behind yours. The previous transit has given you ample time and opportunity to process your feelings and connect with your emotional and romantic past or to nurse some old hurts before gathering the strength to move forward. Now, with Venus in your sign until September 6th, you’re more expressive and sure of your needs and affections. People appreciate your style and the traits you express naturally. This cycle puts the focus on pleasure and love. It’s a pleasant, attention-getting cycle when you’re inclined to spend extra time on yourself and your needs and wishes. While it may not be the most disciplined time for you, it is undoubtedly a period for carrying yourself with more confidence and warmth. Today, there can be some lack of clarity, but it’s temporary and manageable. It can be most challenging to see finances and personal boundaries clearly. There might even be some sneaky behavior going on around you. Whether it’s about bluffing or withholding information, it’s best to postpone big decisions or complicated topics, and instead, tune into your more creative, imaginative, or spiritual needs. Overthinking things is better avoided.
LeoThe Moon moves into your adventure sector today, dear Leo, which can help lift your spirits. Taking a detour from the usual routine can be emotionally refreshing now. There can be some mental fog or complicated technical problems or news to manage with a Mercury-Neptune transit. You are expressing yourself with more empathy, but you may be dealing with others’ unrealistic expectations of you. There could be worse problems to deal with, and it’s just temporary. Still, it’s a good idea to find a balance between following your intuition and meeting your responsibilities to feel truly satisfied today. Following only one of these paths and excluding the other might create resentment or guilt. Be a little more mindful than usual about what you say and how you say it. Also today, Venus begins its transit of your solar twelfth house, active until September 6th. This cycle encourages you to explore your feelings by easing up on analyzing them. It can be a beautiful period to enjoy some downtime. There can be a bit of mystery to your love life, feelings, and affections. You might aim to release old or outdated attitudes and clear space so that new experiences and affections can enter your life. You may be a little more tentative than usual about feelings and even purchases during this cycle.
VirgoVenus moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Virgo. Venus spent longer than usual in your career and reputation sector, which has given you a chance to realign your goals and soften or enhance your reputation. Now, happiness goals are in focus, and friendships can get a nice boost. This transit that lasts until September 6th awakens your need to connect with others or with a special project. There may be some mental fog or complicated problems to handle today. There can be some vagueness to deal with, along with an inability to focus and concentrate. Misinformation can be an issue now, so it’s best to use your excellent powers of discrimination to sort out what information coming in is genuinely useful. Let things unfold naturally for the best results. Find ways to reduce stress now, but avoid taking this so far that you ignore the essential.
LibraVenus begins its transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Libra. Until September 6th, there may be social or romantic opportunities through business or formal functions. You bring a friendlier manner to your professional or public dealings. You might enjoy your work and responsibilities much more during this cycle. It’s a great time for a reputation boost or more pleasant connections. There can be some misunderstandings or troubles getting clear answers today. This can frustrate you initially, but it might also redirect you in creative ways, leaving you to wonder and imagine. Be a little more vigilant than usual, because if you’re not prepared to see them, it can be all too easy to gloss over facts or reminders of reality right now. You might want very much to nurse a dream or vision, whether or not it’s feasible.
ScorpioVenus moves into your solar ninth house today, dear Scorpio, where it will transit until September 6th. It may be a time when someone inspires you, or you enjoy pleasant mind-expanding experiences. You can be somewhat less tolerant of problems or complications in your relationships. You seem to do better in situations outside of the routine when it comes to romance, business, and shopping. Venus spent a longer time than usual in your intimacy sector, and planets transiting this area of your chart tend to operate as if they are undercover. You’ve spent a fair amount of time observing, remembering, intuiting, and analyzing your feelings. With Venus now moving on, it can feel as if you’re emerging into the light. This transit highlights and enhances your naturally attractive qualities. It can bring a more adventurous, spirited attitude to your love life or affections. Today, aim to move past mental fog before arriving at firm conclusions. Clarity is unlikely, but inventive and imaginative thinking can be very refreshing and relaxing. Things only become sticky when you try to focus a stubbornly-tired mind too hard instead of giving yourself some creative room. Temporarily backing off from a problem can help stimulate new ways of approaching it.
SagittariusVenus moves into your intimacy sector for a month’s stay today, dear Sagittarius. It has spent an unusually long time in your partnership zone and opposing sign, focusing on relating, mediating, negotiating, and generally getting along with others. This new transit is great for working on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. It’s also strong for getting to understand your own deeper side as well as your innermost desires and motivations. Financially speaking, you may find backing or support. Today, if life demands some concentration, focus, or discipline, you might feel at a loss or resist it. This feeling is temporary, and allowing your mind to wander can be helpful as long as you reel it back in from time to time.
CapricornVenus enters your partnership sector today, dear Capricorn, and until September 6th, you’re in fine shape with relationships. Venus spent longer than usual in your work and health sector, and now, a more social cycle begins, and it’s good for enhancing your one-to-one relationships. It’s a healthy cycle for attracting and enhancing close relationships. Your manner is agreeable, open, reasonable, and respectful of others’ needs and agendas, and these qualities are very appealing to others now. Energies may be on the confusing side today with a Mercury-Neptune transit putting a veil over your perceptions. People seem to back off or shy away from making commitments. Take a break from thinking and worrying too much if possible now. Getting extra time to yourself can be helpful. This is a time for playing things by ear rather than expecting everything to run as planned.
AquariusVenus enters your work and health sector today, dear Aquarius, and will spend a month in this area of your solar chart. This cycle is useful for bringing harmony to your daily affairs or work. It can also be a time of increased social opportunities through work, chores, daily routines, or health pursuits. Instead, this transit can be about more fully enjoying taking care of your daily life. The Moon enters your communications sector today, and you might bridge gaps with others through thoughtful gestures. A Mercury-Neptune aspect also active today can produce a somewhat confusing or chaotic atmosphere temporarily. It may very well be a good time for dreaming, and this can be relaxing, and the trick is to get into this frame of mind. Wait things out before making something official or final, if possible. It seems we need some time to process.
PiscesThe Moon continues its transit of your sign today, dear Pisces, but then moves into your solar second house, encouraging a steadier pace. Still, transits today can bring some minor confusion to your work environment or regular routines, and interruptions are quite possible. You may need more time to make a confident decision, and it’s probably best to take it. Go over facts carefully and pay extra attention, as foggy thinking can be a problem now. The desire to get something done can come on in a rush, but you need to direct this energy constructively to make it work for you. Mentally, you could be distracted by a vaguely chaotic atmosphere. It’s best not to push things. Venus moves into your sector of joy today, coming in like a breath of fresh air after spending a longer time than usual in your home and family sector. Venus will be inspiring you to discover your joy until September 6th. Your natural charm comes shining through, and matters related to love, entertainment, leisure, creativity, and children are in favor.
