Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThis is a good day for entertainment, play, and big feelings, dear Aries. However, a Venus-Pluto transit can bring some complicated feelings or interactions into the mix. Ideally, what emerges now can be a clue to your fears. If relationship dynamics seem out of balance, resolve to make adjustments so that you and a significant someone feel empowered by your connection. Try your best to replace fear with love to heal yourself and strengthen your relationships. Consider, too, that worries about your work, reputation, or position may be unfounded or exaggerated. If they’re not, it’s time to get to work on possible solutions but take things one step at a time. Watch for a tendency to go to extremes as it can interfere with healthy interactions. Suspicious feelings are possible, but these, too, can be coming from a place of fear. Look for a balance between freedom and comfort, even if it means cutting out or leaning down some activities.
TaurusYour tendency to stick with familiar people, situations, and things today fills a current need, dear Taurus. You seek more security and comfort. It’s best to watch for obsessive behavior with today’s Venus-Pluto square that inclines you to dwell on negative emotions or complex topics. There can be a lot going on under the surface of things, and it’s all too tempting to express things indirectly, which can complicate things further. It can be frustrating at best and destructive at worst, but also relatively transient and manageable. Something stirs or triggers an old hurt or resentment. Rather than letting it rule your behavior, examine what’s emerging now and aim to put it behind you! In truth, you can learn a lot from the messy feelings that might arise now. Exploring intense emotions can be helpful, but dwelling on something that you can’t (or don’t intend to) change won’t do you any good. Letting go of the need to get to the truth of a matter may be for the best today.
GeminiYou are curious and connected today, dear Gemini. Today’s energies are loaded or tense at times, however. A Venus-Pluto square can trigger suspicion or vulnerabilities. You might experience an intense attraction or impulses that come from a deep place. Or, there are reminders of a difficult time and complicated feelings. Relationships aren’t straightforward now–you might sense a hidden agenda or emotional traps in some of your interactions. Be careful that you’re not holding onto something only because you fear letting go. Unhealthy attachments may become clear today. While this can feel a little uncomfortable, it also brings things into the light so that you can manage them rather than allow them to control you. Still, stay clear of manipulative tactics and those using them. As well, avoid dwelling on an issue that can’t or shouldn’t be changed.
CancerThis is a day for settling in on an emotional level, dear Cancer. Nevertheless, there can be some tensions today, and you could find that someone’s resisting or standing in your way. It’s also possible someone is crossing boundaries, trying to control or direct you. Those close to you can be very touchy and sensitive, and it can be easy for people to push your buttons. This kind of energy can sometimes bring out a tendency to repeat behaviors that don’t serve us well. Identify these so that you can change things up and work with the energy to learn more about problem areas. For best results, focus on breaking out of old patterns of relating that haven’t been very successful in the past. Enthusiasm and motivation can be up and down today. Energy and time are limited, of course, even if it seems that you can take on a lot right now.
LeoYou’re in an excellent position to discover feelings you may have buried or brushed aside today, dear Leo, but keep in mind that they may be larger than life right now. Today’s Venus-Pluto square is tricky, producing tension that could interfere in your relationships and communications. It’s all too easy for someone or something to trigger vulnerable areas of your psyche. Worries about your work or health can interfere with your enjoyment of simple connections, personal interests, and light conversations. With this transit, even the simplest of interactions can seem loaded. If you observe this happening, try to detach yourself from the situation and move back into it after you’ve gained some perspective. As well, watch for sharing too much or exaggerating a matter. Responsibilities and recreation can seem mutually exclusive today, and in some ways, they certainly are, but finding a balance is possible. Alternatively, you may need to make concessions and adjustments so that you can divide your time between them without so much stress or pressure.
VirgoYou can be more sensitive to the emotional atmosphere around you today, dear Virgo. Ideally, you get the chance to center yourself and connect with your innermost feelings and aspirations. But with a Venus-Pluto transit in play, you can experience some frustration over personal finances, values, and ideas that stimulate fears or clash with those of someone in your life. Keep your eye out for unhealthy attachments. There can be a possessive streak to manage; if so, it’s more likely a symptom of something that runs deeper than the matter at hand. Fear of not having control over your life can lead you to hold on to things, people, and situations. Consciously allowing yourself to let go, even a little, can be helpful now. Worries about money or love may or may not be sound, but you’re wasting your energy if they don’t motivate you to handle matters. When Pluto is problematic as it is today, we tend to see where we’re overly attached or worried about not being in control. It can be revealing if you’re looking to learn from the experience.
LibraYour planetary ruler, Venus, forms a square to Pluto today, dear Libra, and energy is tricky, especially for relationships. This aspect can stir up insecurities and fears or a bit of conflict in your domestic life. If you feel that people are trying to manipulate you or that you need to resort to manipulation to get your way, examine things more closely. Work on your part of the problem and understand that you can’t control others. Or, make it clear that you need to be dealt with directly if others are trying to get your attention. It’s important to avoid letting worry or fear of losing power spoil your mood. Family or home life may very well need extra attention. However, also consider that you may be better off detaching just a little so that you can relax. You may be holding onto something too tightly now. With a Mars-Jupiter transit also in play, you can feel pressure to do more than time or energy allow. Scattering excess energy is not the answer, as none of your interests or ventures will prosper if you do so. Aim to come to a balance instead.
ScorpioToday’s Venus-Pluto square can require sensitive handling, dear Scorpio. Some feelings of discontent can lead to manipulative or disruptive behavior if you’re not careful. A tendency to dwell on the past can interfere with healthy interactions in the present. Getting your way and seeing eye-to-eye with someone can be difficult. Controlling a conversation or persuading someone to believe something can be tempting but won’t lead to improvement. It’s probably better to address a problematic area head-on rather than let it fester. Be kinder to yourself by moving on or choosing a time that’s not as loaded. A Mars-Jupiter transit also in play today can have you wondering what’s your next move, or you may struggle with weighing your options. Mars is in a very secure and safe sector of your chart, encouraging you to build up your resources, enjoy them, and stick with what you know. Jupiter, on the other hand, stirs your desire to share, interact, and compromise. Even minor differences can grow into big problems under today’s transits. Try not to make assumptions prematurely and attempt to tone things down. Clashes of values, desires, and plans can ripple through a relationship. Look for the middle ground.
SagittariusThis is not the time for dull routines, dear Sagittarius, and your curiosity is big today. Still, today’s energies are somewhat complicated. If you’ve taken on more commitments lately, these can interfere with your need to pursue personal plans. You could feel temporarily drained and lacking in direction or focus. A Venus-Pluto square can point to a situation that triggers a helpless feeling but don’t allow fear or resentment to drive your behavior. There may be an issue surrounding values, money, or questions of ownership and boundaries that can produce some tension. There can be some indirect or roundabout activity that rubs you the wrong way. The day can be on the heavy side on an emotional plane. If you feel out of the loop, manipulating or controlling to get back in the game can seem appealing but won’t work in your favor. You’re much better off if you take the high road! You’ll learn something valuable about yourself through your reactions.
CapricornYou’re in an observant, introspective frame of mind today, dear Capricorn. You are drawn to mysteries and puzzles. If you can manage spending time free of interference so that you can do your own thing, you’ll likely benefit. However, a Venus-Pluto aspect in play can produce tension and competition. It’s most likely felt with those in authority or the business world, although personal interactions can also be stressful- perhaps even loaded. For best results, keep all of your dealings above board and avoid the traps of game-playing. While you can’t control how others approach situations, you can control how you respond, and sometimes, the best response is no response at all! Competition can motivate you to improve your game, but today, you are inclined to feel put off by it–it’s more likely to rub you the wrong way. Do your part by avoiding attempts to stage-direct things. In truth, behaviors now can very well sully your reputation, and it’s best to keep things status quo for now.
AquariusThere can be stronger emotions surrounding relationships today, dear Aquarius. Right now, interaction is vital to emotional satisfaction with the Moon in your partnership sector. However, today’s Venus-Pluto square is complicated as it can stir any tendencies toward emotional extremes. There could be an overreaction to minor problems and events, but these are likely symptoms of deeper issues. Be willing to face these issues with self-honesty for best results. Even so, it can be challenging to remain impartial or tone things down. The feeling that you can’t quite let go of the past can hamper your desire for new experiences and to move forward in your life. Take things slowly. Today’s energies are not free and breezy, but they’re manageable. To boot, they can help reveal problem areas. In various ways today, you can be learning your limits.
PiscesDisorganization and imbalance can disrupt your mood today, dear Pisces, with the Moon in your solar sixth and then seventh house today. You’ll want to keep yourself busy. Feeling secure finds you at your best today. Nevertheless, it can be a challenge to keep a healthy distance from problem areas. You’re not on the same wavelength with someone, or you receive mixed signals. Watch for the tendency to read a little too much into what’s happening around you. People probably do have hidden agendas right now, but it’s best not to focus too strongly on the negative. A Venus-Pluto aspect tends to stir up doubts and inner resentments or rumblings. Internal confusion about a relationship’s dynamics or depth can be the root of troubles now. If relatively simple problems work you up far more than expected, seek reasons rather than allow fears and frustrations to rule your mood. Also today, there may be a question as to whether or not to put your energy into a particular project. Even though you’d rather jump on opportunities, you may need to pace yourself and wait for true (or better) leads.
