Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesEarly today, you may be a little misguided in your compassion with a Venus-Neptune square occurring in your sectors of faith, dear Aries. You might experience a small letdown or become aware that something you were expecting might not come to pass. However, putting some illusions aside can be healthy as you make room for more realizable goals. You could feel that others are overstepping their bounds and asking you to do too much. Resolving to define and enforce boundaries going forward can be most useful. Others’ opinions and beliefs could leave you feeling deflated and frustrated if they lack the understanding you have of a situation. It’s not the best time for important financial transactions or clarity in love relationships. You are unlikely to be as productive as you’d like to be, but you may need a break! It might also help to let go of the need to know or fully understand your relationships for the time being.
TaurusWhile you’re likely to have some wonderful ideas now, a Venus-Neptune aspect can cloud your vision early today, dear Taurus. It can also play with your mood, motivation, and drive, but this is temporary. Areas of life that may be up in the air or unclear include friendships, boundaries in your relationships, work, support, or intimacy. You may be feeling high one minute and low the next. The trick is to keep expectations of others at the human level! You may be dealing with a romantic or social disappointment, but the good news is that it’s clearing the way for more clarity. In fact, you’re making room for new and improved goals and turning your focus to those things that matter more. Ride this out – it’s likely just a brief time of being out of sync. The day progresses far more purposefully. Emotional satisfaction tends to come from mental stimulation and learning new things.
GeminiEarly today, you may be facing evasiveness in others that is confusing, something is up in the air, or there can be frustrations with what’s left unsaid, dear Gemini. A Venus-Neptune square may mean a lack of general direction is weighing on a relationship. The primary key to enjoying today involves letting go of too-high expectations of yourself, another person, or a relationship itself–it can be very freeing! A small letdown may send you on a detour that’s completely worth it in the end. If you strive to enjoy the moment without borrowing from the future, you can have some fun today, particularly on a creative level. Today’s Moon transit encourages you to seek out comfort and predictability, and it’s far easier to do so as the day advances.
CancerThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Cancer, and you’re prioritizing your emotional needs. With a Venus-Neptune square this morning, wishful thinking can cloud your view early today. It may not be easy to make room for and enjoy your duties with dreams and fantasies filling your mind. If motivation levels are waning and restlessness takes over, you might quickly tire of the mundane or routine in your life. You might wonder where you stand on a matter, but there are more questions than answers temporarily. If you’re overcrowding your mind with unrealizable goals and they’re interfering with what you’re doing now, consider putting them behind you to make room for dreams that genuinely encourage you. Watch for having your blinders on and resolve to pay more attention to your needs for inspiration and imagination in the future. It’s far easier to go with the flow and enjoy yourself as the day advances.
LeoEarly today, watch for a tendency to pick and choose which cues from your environment to see and which ones to overlook, dear Leo. There can be a veil over your eyes regarding your relationships, and perhaps some blurred boundaries or uncertain feelings. It isn’t easy to be objective with the morning’s Venus-Neptune square. You may be attracted to those things that you can’t have or that are just out of reach. Aim to explore different ways to enjoy yourself, but avoid pinning your hopes on speculative ventures or elusive people right now. Once you let go of unreasonable expectations, you can get into a far better emotional space. The day progresses with more consistency. Even so, the Moon in the sign behind yours suggests you need a break from the routine.
VirgoThe Moon spends today in your friendship sector, dear Virgo, encouraging you to seek happy connections. This gets far easier as the day advances! Events or feelings happening early today can remind you of the need to draw boundaries. Venus forms a square to Neptune, and the desires of a significant other can be a mystery, not necessarily in a good way! Or, you might pin so much of your hopes in someone or something that you forget you’re the one in charge of making yourself happy. In truth, this transit makes it tricky to accept that happiness is found within and not outside of you. Emotions and affections can be hard to make sense of right now, so do your best to hold off on drawing up conclusions. Aim to return to practical problems on a day when you’re more ruled by logic and reason than by complicated emotions and expectations. It can feel inconvenient to face reality about a person or situation right now, but it can save you a lot of time and energy in the long run. The day advances with more contentedness. A stronger drive to try something different or alternative is nevertheless with you.
LibraThe Moon continues its transit of your solar tenth house, dear Libra, encouraging you to formulate goals and plans. Early today, however, a Venus-Neptune square makes it challenging to see ahead of you. There’s a tendency to feed previously held beliefs about someone and, in the process, not honestly face reality. Save important decisions for a better day, or even later today, as you may be glossing over vital details. You may need to let things flow and trust in the process. Try to keep your emotional distance until you see things more clearly–there’s no need to make half-hearted commitments. Feeling a tad drained of energy can stem from wavering motivation and emotions. After all, wrestling with doubt or feelings of discontent can be exhausting! As the day advances, you’ll find life feels more straightforward if you take things one step at a time.
ScorpioThis is a wonderful day for creative inspiration, dear Scorpio. Emotional energy runs high, and you’re inclined to feed it further with interesting topics, interactions, and experiences–it’s not a time for strict routine. The first part of the day is colored by a Venus-Neptune square, however, which can be confusing. Restlessness is possible. Situations may be up in the air, or others are vague and giving off confusing signals. You may not feel close enough to someone or your heart, and a sense that you’re not on solid ground with others can leave you feeling listless. While you’re normally highly perceptive, wishful thinking can cloud your vision during this transit. It may try to convince you that borrowing from the future is a good idea. Whether it’s purchasing beyond your means or investing emotions and energy into something unlikely to pan out, try to nip it in the bud. Tap into your empathy and compassion, but avoid over-idealizing someone, something, or a situation. The remainder of the day helps you take the time to learn your true needs.
SagittariusEarly today, emotions are tricky, dear Sagittarius. Wishful thinking is acceptable if it inspires you or motivates you to go after what you want. However, if it only serves to leave you wanting, then you should probably let it go and get on with your day. A Venus-Neptune square can leave you wanting. Distractions could create a bit of chaos in the first half of the day, but while it’s hard to communicate your desires temporarily, it’s best not to let others guess them, as it can lead to frustration. Focusing on realizable goals and stopping to appreciate what’s already in place will bring the most satisfaction. Even so, wistful feelings remind you that you need to feed your needs for more inspired living going forward. As the day advances, you can feel increasingly more in charge. You’d prefer to pour your energy into things that you believe in fully as the Moon transits your intimacy sector.
CapricornImagination takes on more power and influence than usual early today with a Venus-Neptune square, dear Capricorn. If you use it for relaxing or creative activities, then you benefit. However, the tendency with this aspect is often to pin your hopes on something unlikely to transpire. Wishful thinking can certainly alert you to areas where you can make improvements. However, you might want to watch for making half-hearted commitments or statements as moods are changeable your vision may be a bit off. Aim to get in touch with your real needs rather than chase whims. Feelings of discontent or longing can be vague, and whims might mask the things you are honestly missing. Keeping expectations of yourself, others, relationships, and situations reasonable can protect you from disappointment, but don’t shield yourself. It may be that you need to feel vulnerable to understand your deeper needs. The day advances more smoothly as you use your imagination to enhance your life.
AquariusIt’s not easy to assess the value of people and things objectively this morning, dear Aquarius, with Venus square to Neptune. The tendency may be to chase a pipe dream or invest emotions, energy, or money into something that fails to truly satisfy. Instead, a small disappointment with a friend occurs if wires get crossed, or there is an error of omission. It may be best to put off spending and lending just for now. If a plan or goal now seems not as possible, it might only need some refinements. However, if it’s just not serving you well, make room for one that does. Uncertainty doesn’t always feel great, but letting go of a burning need to define things or to be “in the know” can help you a lot now. The day advances with more chance of contentment. You can feel quite inspired to pursue your goals in your work, health, and financial worlds.
PiscesToday holds good energy for enjoyment, dear Pisces, as the Moon transits your sector of joy. This morning, with Venus square Neptune, feelings, needs, and desires are complicated. There is a tendency to look outside of yourself for something you imagine will make you happier or more fulfilled. However, it’s a wild goose chase and might even lead to more profound feelings of discontent. Aim to look within and get in better touch with what may be missing from your life and then make plans to work on it. In your relationships, avoid band-aid fixes if it means misleading yourself or others. Putting certain things off can end up costing you more. Watch for misjudging the value of something now. As the day advances, emotions are more likely to smooth out.
