Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may embrace your ambitions or longer-term goals today, dear Aries. A Venus-Pluto alignment at the top of your solar chart suggests getting past an obstacle, enjoying more professional influence, or feeling strong and empowered through your current mission. With today’s transits, you might feel you need something (or someone) with great intensity, but love-hate feelings can be involved. Facing some truths that stimulate your fears, particularly in your career, relationships, or financial affairs, can be empowering. Aim to dig deep and recognize ambitions that you haven’t truly acknowledged until now. You can be exceptionally focused, which may also help attract the right resources. You might see your goals more clearly, but it’s also a fine time to explore your concerns about your position, performance, future, and life direction.
TaurusYou can be especially motivated and excited about an idea or subject today, dear Taurus, and others are especially interested in what you have to say, teach, or share. You’re a magnet now! It’s also an intense day for enjoying learning and developing your skills or knowledge, perhaps with or because of someone special. Today’s energies are good for mutually beneficial agreements and cooperation. Connecting with a partner or your relationship needs can be intense and exciting, or sharing a personal belief or mindset can bond you with someone. You can fill up with a desire to make profound changes that last as the day advances, putting you in a position of power as you begin the new year. It can be a time to reinvent yourself through new ideas, knowledge, and life experience. You might experience some tension or fear with these things but also a growing determination to live a more engaging life. Working with differences, making compromises, and finding a balance are important strategies today.
GeminiThis can be a fine day for enjoying connecting with your more intense feelings and deeper desires, dear Gemini. These can lead you to exciting discoveries, although there is also a chance they lead to demanding behavior! It’s important to remember to respect your boundaries while enjoying yourself. Whether with relationship issues or finances, it’s better to face problems rather than hide from them, as this is a day for seeking answers and digging for truths. Creatively speaking, you might be able to draw upon raw and deep feelings today to create something magical. It can be a day to recognize your need for more from your relationships or projects and activities. And, if your needs are unmet, aim to use your intensity for something productive. The desire to bring something to a new level can be pleasantly motivating, whether it’s an idea, project, or relationship. Aim to nurture a positive attachment to a project.
CancerTransits today can inspire you to throw yourself into a happy, rewarding pursuit, dear Cancer. With a Venus-Pluto alignment occurring as the year ends, you’re seeking extra emotional stimulation. It can be a vital time for making a deeper connection with someone special in your life, even if the power of emotions stimulated now can sometimes take you by surprise. If someone is pulling up strong feelings in you, consider this a chance to understand yourself better. It’s a great time to learn from differences, as this is the best route toward increased intimacy. Breaking out of worn-out relating patterns could be a goal now. You may feel that you’re on the verge of a breakthrough or turning point with self-expression and interactions.
LeoYou might experience a moment of truth and possibly extra motivation to kick a habit, dear Leo. Your feelings are strong, and you can be emotionally quite sensitive but pleasantly inspired to make changes. Work and health matters may gain traction as Venus and Pluto head into alignment, or you enjoy more profound ambition and determination to improve them.

VirgoWith the pleasant intensity of a Venus-Pluto transit as you close out the year, dear Virgo, there can be fantastic insight. You’re exceptionally close to your desires, wants, and needs, which can be disconcerting at first, but enlightening. If you aim to manage your reactions, it can be a fine time for creative or romantic endeavors that stand to benefit from commitment, depth, and focus. You can tap into or draw upon your deeper feelings and apply them to whatever you are doing now, with great success. Facing a truth or acknowledging desires or ambitions empowers you now, and it can be a positive turning point. Create something from the heart for the best results now. It’s also an excellent time for attracting the right resources to you. You’re ready to embrace activities that are absorbing or demanding.
LibraYou can learn much about the people you care about and your own needs today, dear Libra. Revealing interactions with family members or those very close to you can occur–your affections magnify with a Venus-Pluto alignment on its way. Feelings of love can intensify, and if your relationships are satisfying, you can feel on top of the world, but if they’re missing the mark, you can feel the lack more deeply than usual. Fortunately, you’re ready to make improvements. It can also be a time for going the extra mile for something you truly want and believe in, which can be an extra sense of security. You can feel pleasantly motivated for home and family activities. Your appeal is powerful, and your drive and determination are strong.

New insights into your relationship needs or a changing attitude towards love can emerge, bringing on a turning point. People are drawn to you magnetically. Conversations, interests, projects, and matters to do with the mind can bring you together with someone, or you’re enjoying these things more thoroughly.
SagittariusNew insights into money matters or business affairs can emerge, dear Sagittarius, and so can deep feelings about what you have and don’t have. Ideally, you’re getting over a hump related to money, time, ownership, or respect as Venus and Pluto head into alignment in your resources sector. You’re more willing to seek and face the truth, helping you get to a place where you’re ready to make vital and meaningful changes. There can be an opportunity to make full use of a resource or talent. You can discover ways to make more of what you have, and it’s a turning-point moment. For best results, look for where you may be overly attached and aim to let go even a little to get yourself into a healthier place. It’s a strong time for connecting with your desire for improvement.
CapricornWith Venus and Pluto heading into alignment in your sign, dear Capricorn, you may be moving a personal plan forward or gaining self-understanding. It’s a motivating transit, and it happens to come just as one calendar year ends and a new one begins, producing a turning-point feeling. Attracting what or who you want comes more readily. There can be a competitive, possessive, and emotional tone to the day, mostly pleasantly so, and an inherent need for change is with you. In truth, the internal changes you make now can be defining. You can feel pleasantly ambitious. You’re a self-starter, and this energy magnifies today.
AquariusToday is strong for epiphanies and discoveries, dear Aquarius, as Venus and Pluto head into alignment, joining just after the calendar year ends. Occurring in your privacy sector, you can experience a meaningful review of your feelings or relish a powerful moment. Those things that leave you feeling insecure or guilt-ridden need to go, but first, you need to uncover their source, and doing so now is within reach. There may be recognition or reward for past actions, a pleasant surprise from the past, or good feelings and happiness in your inner or private world today. Desires are strong and can overpower you at times today, making it especially important to channel them constructively. There can be sudden, revealing moments.
PiscesIt’s an auspicious time to make amends, make connections, or start anew, dear Pisces, as Venus and Pluto come together at the turn of the calendar year. You’re getting an honest glimpse into problem areas and a window into your deepest needs, which is a potent combination. There can be a significant connection with someone or a powerful idea, or you could connect with a deep desire to work towards a dream or cause. This transit favors digging deep and discovering your needs and wants–perhaps ambitions you didn’t realize you had. Love feelings can dominate, and they can be about a person, idea, or project. You could be in the position to purge, release, and move forward.
