Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIf a plan of action is missing early today, restlessness can lead to mistakes, dear Aries. It’s better to watch for careless moves or words. If you have too many things to manage, you’re left with no time to center yourself. It may be best to self-reflect and aim to understand what you truly need or want because missing the mark is a real possibility. If you can keep things moderate, it can be a time for interesting new insights. You might recognize areas of your life that need an upgrade or refreshment. Also today, Venus begins its transit of your solar tenth house of career and reputation. This cycle, lasting until January 2nd, helps you find more pleasure in your work or responsibilities. You’re in a great place to refine or realign your goals, and you might soften or enhance your reputation in the weeks ahead. There is a general sense of harmony and cooperation around you that allows you to, at the very least, work in peace. Social opportunities can arise through professional dealings or business. Otherwise, this can be a period when you project a warmer image or more appealing energy to the world. The feedback is generally positive, and you’re attracting situations that become you.
TaurusTransits early today tend to lead to misjudgment, but they’re good for stretching your mind, dear Taurus. Consider that unrealistic expectations don’t do you any favors. Watch for going too far, chasing something that you may not genuinely want. With self-awareness, you might discover areas of your life that need an upgrade or special attention. A new perspective can emerge. Restlessness stirred today can give clues as to what may be missing from your life. However, it may be best that you avoid stretching yourself too thin. Also today, Venus enters a new sign. Until January 2nd, learning, publishing, and communicating are in stronger favor, and personal magnetism runs high. You’ll be opening your eyes to new and exciting pastimes and projects. There can be excitement, motivation, and possibly even love connected to learning or online activities. It’s a cycle for expressing your affections confidently and optimistically. You might spend more of your leisure time learning and sharing ideas. Your sense of the bigger picture helps you thrive, and you have the feeling that you’re making your luck and creating your success.
GeminiYou might restlessly seek more enjoyment or meaning early today, dear Gemini, but you should watch for unrealistic expectations. The tendency is to shoot too high or chase things you don’t truly want or need. Temporarily, relationship problems can magnify if expectations blow up. Keep in mind that others may not see you clearly, or they could misunderstand your actions or affections. Feel your desires and enjoy them, but be wary of those that are too sudden or overpowering to be true. Your interactions can be pleasantly spicy or intimacy-boosting with Venus moving into your solar eighth house for a stay until January 2nd. You can feel pleasantly passionate about a person or an idea in the weeks ahead. It’s a fabulous time to get to know yourself better as you get in touch with your more profound needs and desires. Ultimately, relationships are likely to strengthen as you understand yourself better. With money and love, you’re more strategic and observant than spontaneous. This period is one of the better ones for attracting the support you need or for special enjoyment of your intimate life, whether with others or in your relationship with yourself.
CancerEarly today, it’s easy to make too much of a situation, dear Cancer, which can lead to poor decisions. You might manage a restless spirit with a varied routine, conversation, or knowledge. Finding a happy medium between filling your responsibilities and satisfying your desire for experience and excitement may be challenging but doable with patience and self-awareness. Mistakes made now are likely due to overblown expectations and lack of foresight, particularly in your relationships or at work. Promises made today may be challenging to keep later. Keeping these in check puts you in a far better position to enjoy yourself. Also today, Venus moves into your opposite sign for a stay until January 2nd. Your enjoyment of others and your social life increase. There can be opportunities to improve one-to-one relationships, and you’re in great shape for negotiations, counsel, and agreements. You tend to see the more flattering side of a partner or others, in general. Harmony is a priority in the weeks ahead. You’re gracious and willing to compromise, appreciating companionship more than usual. It can also be a period when you seek to correct imbalances in your life, and you might acquire more beautiful possessions.
LeoEarly today, it’s best to remind yourself of your usual limits, dear Leo, with Venus and Jupiter clashing. Circumstances seem to encourage you to forget them, and judgment can be off. Decisions based on the moment’s mood are unlikely to work out very much in your favor, just for now. There is a tendency to make promises that are hard to keep or simple statements that others take as more than they are. These things are resolvable but can be nipped in the bud with some mindfulness of current transits. Keeping things moderate makes sense now, although having some fun is still possible. You may want to do something different, and current dissatisfaction can lead to meaningful improvements. You might get the chance to balance out and enjoy your daily routines with Venus beginning its transit of your solar sixth house today. This cycle, lasting until January 2nd, is strong for bringing harmony to your everyday life, including your working environment. There may be social opportunities emerging through your work, daily routines, or pursuit of health goals. The weeks ahead can be rewarding for taking more pleasure in organizing and working.
VirgoEarly today, restlessness can lead you to seek new pleasures or make some changes and improvements, dear Virgo. Or, it might lead you astray, so do watch for overblown expectations. Try to stay within your usual limits for best results. Someone’s perspective can be informative, but it’s better to avoid being swayed by promises or taking too much to heart under current transits. Venus moves into harmony with your sign today, and it’s more comfortable to attract or enhance love. This transit brings lightness, warmth, and grace into your life, and it’s particularly good for your powers of attraction. You seek more pleasure from life during this cycle that lasts until January 2nd. Creativity, romance, children, entertainment, and other channels through which you express your need for play and reinforcement can be in pleasant focus.
LibraIt can be tempting to take on too many projects or line up more activities than you can reasonably manage early today, dear Libra. With Venus, your ruler, clashing with Jupiter, it’s easy for expectations to blow up. A good measure involves asking yourself if you’d be able to do these things on a regular day when energy levels and moods are just ordinary. Keeping your future self in mind, you might aim for a bit of moderation today. Otherwise, you may spend a lot of time on something that holds little weight. Venus begins its transit of your solar fourth house today, bringing a stronger desire–and potential–for harmony on the home front or in your personal life. You get a boost to your sense of self and inner stores of courage in the weeks ahead. Until January 2nd, you can be more protective of the people you care about and of your feelings! It’s a time when you’re careful with your heart, a little more cautious in love, and conservative with your money. Still, relationships with very close loved ones, family, or roomies stand to improve. You might enjoy quieter activities, cooking, decorating, and improving the home atmosphere.
ScorpioA Venus-Jupiter transit early today can too easily lead to jumping to conclusions, dear Scorpio, or throwing yourself into situations without enough thought. Watch for impulsiveness, especially with love and money. There is a tendency to be somewhat careless or overindulgent. You might overvalue something if you’re not careful. While you should watch for making too much of a situation, the energy of the day may push you to try something new or discover a new and improved method. Venus moves into your communications sector later today, staying until January 2nd. Your words can get you closer to others, at least in spirit in the weeks ahead. Collaboration can be excellent, and sharing or publishing a piece of work, joining a workshop, furthering a cause, or communicating with a new friend can be in happy focus. Your need to share your thoughts and feelings increases. There are benefits from your studies, mental interests, and communications. You’re also more thoroughly enjoying these things. You might get happy news, or you could receive positive publicity. Harmonizing with siblings, acquaintances, classmates, or even neighbors comes more easily. Your mindset is positive, helping you across the board.
SagittariusEarly today, you could experience a building desire to advance or enjoy something new or different, dear Sagittarius, but might end up only spinning your wheels for now. You can have good intentions to make improvements, but if things don’t run smoothly, you might lose interest quickly. Aim to moderate your expectations. It’s not the best time for productivity as the tendency is to overreach and lose inspiration far too quickly. It would be best to center yourself and think about what’s missing, and then consider pacing yourself as you set out to pursue it. Be kind to your future self by taking it easy today. Also today, Venus moves into your resources sector, putting money matters in better favor in the weeks ahead. Until January 2nd, Venus boosts your confidence in your talents, resources, and abilities, as well as your capacity to attract the right resources into your life. Your search for security and comfort strongly influences your tastes, style, and affections. You’re inclined to make the most of your current circumstances, and building and collecting are most appealing to you.
CapricornWatch for starting something too quickly early today, as it may burn out similarly, dear Capricorn, due to a Venus-Jupiter transit. A good mood or overestimation of feelings and capabilities can lead to making commitments or promises that you later regret. Enjoy yourself, but pace yourself as you do, and try not to communicate feelings too quickly. Expansion is good, but moderation is the key to success, even if you feel like reaching for the stars. Moods even out as the day advances. Also today, Venus enters your sign, and you’ll host this pleasant planet until January 2nd. With this transit, you’re more expressive and sure of your affections. People appreciate your style and the personality traits that naturally come to you. You are giving out good vibes and receiving them in turn! It’s also a great few weeks for career and reputation matters. You’re building up self-acceptance and feeling more comfortable in your own skin.
AquariusThere is some tendency to overdo things or to push your limits early today, dear Aquarius. You’re more sensitive to processes that feel dull or meaningless, which can stir some restlessness. While you can certainly use this energy to make changes, for now, you might see things in extremes, and it’s better to pace and moderate yourself. If you aim to hold off on decisions now, then it’s a good time to stretch your imagination and consider new possibilities. Also today, Venus begins its transit of your solar twelfth house, where it will influence until January 2nd. You might yearn for more meaning in your love life if it’s missing, or you could be uncertain about your feelings for the time being. Looking back before you move forward makes the most sense and is a good use of this cycle. It might be a quiet or private period for love relationships, and it could also be a time when you take particular pleasure in your private life. Digesting recent experiences can be a rewarding process. You’re more in touch with your compassion, which can draw you to people who need help. Benefits can come through behind-the-scenes efforts.
PiscesEarly today, the tendency is to overdo or speak too quickly, dear Pisces, leading to minor problems. Jupiter in your sign is in challenging aspect to Venus, inclining you to want more from your life. Consider that even if you get what you want, it may not satisfy if you aren’t in touch with your actual needs. Watch for acting out of character today, aiming to steer clear of exaggeration. Self-restraint and patience can save the day, and you might enjoy yourself as you entertain new feelings or discover unknown pleasures. Also today, Venus enters your solar eleventh house for a stay until January 2nd, and in the weeks ahead, you’re more responsive. Others especially enjoy your company, feedback, and input. You’re personally popular and well-positioned to connect with like-minded people. Friends can bring more pleasure into your life, perhaps because they’re more receptive or available. On another level, you can find more enjoyment in coming up with new plans, ideas, and goals for more fulfilling, happy activities. It’s a good time to network, experiment, and explore–you’re bound to learn more about your tastes and needs. You have a healthier relationship with your need for pleasure, joy, and friendship in the weeks ahead.
