Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
This is a potentially strong day for reaching a centered, calm frame of mind, dear Aries, due in good part to a Venus-Neptune aspect that inspires understanding and acceptance. You’re likely to enjoy imaginative exchanges today, and your intuition is heightened from this state of peace. There is a real opportunity to connect with your deeper emotions in a pleasant way. Allow your intuition to flow naturally and spontaneously now, as you’re sure to benefit from this exercise. Finances may improve through hidden or unexpected channels, and you’re tuning in quite beautifully to trends that can help a business or assist you in generating business ideas. Your ability to visualize and dream soars today. With others, your attitude is patient and compassionate, and this can be a good time for opening up. Use today to understand people and money, not through analysis but your intuition!
Current energies act to smooth over your emotions most pleasingly today, dear Taurus, promoting compassion and positivity. You are getting to a place of understanding about recent events, especially surrounding your relationships. Take the time to connect with your need for gentleness, beauty, and harmony now. You are highly intuitive, and your powers of attraction are high, not to mention your imagination is working in your favor. People tend to be on your side right now, and incredible openness is likely in your conversations. While this is a potentially excellent day for your emotional life and relationships, it has much potential for practical thinking as well.
You have a strong sense of your practical priorities today, dear Gemini, but it’s also a potentially brilliant day for your emotional, romantic, or spiritual life. A Venus-Neptune aspect promotes compassion and acceptance for who we are. Occurring in practical sectors of your solar chart, this is a good time for understanding your work and goals or direction more intuitively, as well as for business-related interactions. There may be unusual circumstances that connect you with the right people or the ultimate projects. You seem to come to solutions instinctively and not necessarily in logical ways, applying your imagination to practical matters. Business can benefit if you take into account any neglected spiritual or humanitarian goals. You have a stronger desire to make and produce beautiful things, and you may be thinking about ways to turn dreams into products, systems, or plans.
There is a stronger tendency towards peace-making and acceptance today, dear Cancer, as Venus and Neptune form a harmonious aspect. At the same time, Mercury, Jupiter, and Vesta connect in happy ways, and your thinking is future-focused, confident, and grand. Sharing different viewpoints with others can be especially rewarding now, and your charm is in top form. Creatively, you are tuned in. It’s a good time for letting go of negative energy. The day’s energies inspire good feelings, forgiveness, and imagination. Your particular brand of gentleness is more appealing to others than usual, and you’re especially tuned into your creative or intuitive side. You are expressing yourself in ways that are especially relatable to others. The day also holds divine energy for work and health solutions, good news, and supportive information or conversations.
Interactions tend to be imaginative, accepting, and gently stimulating today, dear Leo, and forgiveness, support, and compassion are themes. This is a good time for strengthening relationships through the appreciation of shared pasts and connections, as well as familiarity. Compassion is flowing, and people seem more ready and willing than usual to see the good side of people. You might want to indulge in a healthy escape now. You are especially eager to enjoy life today, share philosophies and ideas, and express yourself creatively. There can be good news or helpful information related to creative projects, your love life, children, or leisurely pursuits now.
This is a powerful time for letting go of negativity, dear Virgo, as you’re most inclined to see the positive, beautiful side of life, situations, and people today. If you can manage some healthy escapism, it’s a fine time for getting away, even if it’s on a symbolic or mental level. A Venus-Neptune aspect encourages you to let go of tension and enjoy life’s beautiful moments, while Mercury aligns with Jupiter and reminds you of opportunities and blessings. A partner or friend’s gentle touch or conversation can help you relax. There is good energy for expressing your care and concern verbally, and for getting a warm message across.
Imagination is stirred today, dear Libra, and you’re particularly positive and forward-looking now. Good news or information you need arrives and completes the bigger picture of a matter. You more fully appreciate the finer things in life. There can be a soul connection made or a feeling that things are magically falling into place today. You may experience a wonderful psychic rapport with someone. On another level, business ideas can be visionary. You’re sensing trends, wants, and needs. Money may very well be coming through unusual or hidden sources. Your presence is magnetic, and an air of mystery around you can work to your advantage. At the same time, it’s an excellent time to be productive or to get an edge in your work or with creative pursuits.
Moods even out beautifully today, dear Scorpio, as you see things in a positive and even beautiful light. Your personal appeal gets a big boost now. It’s an especially good time to de-stress, detox, and let go of negativity if you’re holding on to it in some manner. Venus in your sign harmonizes with Neptune, framing you well and drawing you to satisfying outlets for social and spiritual or creative expression. Mercury aligns with Jupiter today as well – another positive, uplifting influence. Happiness in the present but also hopefulness about the future combine. Part of your charm today is your generosity, but also the ability to remain slightly elusive. There can be new insight into a problem or good news (or the right information) that lifts your spirits.
A Venus-Neptune connection today helps soothe you, dear Sagittarius, and brings the light of understanding to your heart. You are set to forgive, and this benefits you spiritually. With this warm influence, your inner fantasy world enlivens and serves you well. You might have a warm feeling about a secret that you’re holding onto or a sense of peace about your private life. If love requires personal sacrifices now, you’re very willing to make them. You can come to an understanding of a complicated matter from the past. It’s an excellent day for letting go of anger, for forgiving someone or yourself, and for extending someone a helping hand. Even with so much going on behind the scenes now, Mercury and Jupiter align in your sign today, and you may be sought for your opinion or advice. Much of the day is strong for connecting with others, learning, and reaching out.
A Venus-Neptune aspect influencing the day is soothing, dear Capricorn. A friend could be integral to gaining some perspective on a matter. Forgiveness comes more easily than usual, and you may very well experience psychic rapport with someone. You may be expressing particular compassion, forgiveness, or words that inspire others. On the other hand, the thoughtfulness or understanding of a friend might lift your spirits today. You might come to someone’s aid, even with something as simple as a few kind words. Take advantage of this time to see and appreciate the positive things in your day, as well as the good people in your life. Today is good for mending broken fences.

Valuable insights into your projects and relationships can come now. Hunches are more likely on target when you’re living your life from a place of love rather than fear, and this is the tendency now as Venus forms a harmonious aspect to Neptune. You also have a Mercury-Jupiter alignment working in your favor today, and words can heal, or information has the power to uplift. In leadership or professional roles, extra charm or intrigue surround you, and these work to your advantage. There is smooth, productive energy with you today.
Today is strong for entertaining wonderful ideas and expressing yourself, dear Pisces, and for understanding and forgiveness as well. Neptune in your sign forms a pleasant aspect with Venus today, and Mercury and Jupiter align at the top of your solar chart. Both influences inspire positive thinking. Your charm is enhanced, and your powers of attraction are potent. Instinct is strong today. There can be a revelation or new understanding of a matter that’s uplifting, and this may be about letting something go and then putting your faith in the universe that it will find its way to where it belongs. There is smooth, natural energy for seeking out or enjoying new experiences, and for reaching out to others. At the same time, you’re not afraid of some hard work and effort today.
