Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou can enjoy great ideas and enthusiasm now, dear Aries, but you may want to watch for overshooting today. With today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition, excitement, uncertainty, or indecision can stir restlessness. Before indulging yourself or making quick decisions, consider what’s best for you in the future. You might also vacillate between wanting more intimacy and preferring to handle things independently. You’re particularly sensitive to the moods of people around you, which can lead to personal ups and downs. It may be best to center yourself and discern which feelings are genuinely yours, aiming to shed those you’ve adopted as your own! The tendency may be to react with extravagant moves which will solve nothing. Before indulging yourself or making quick decisions, consider what’s right for your “future self.” Consider that your relationship with yourself improves as you acknowledge and accept some of your deeper feelings.
TaurusSpirits are high today, dear Taurus, but a little unstable due to a Venus-Jupiter opposition. It’s probably best to avoid overstating or promising, as it may be better to live in the moment right now. It can be a restless day until you get in touch with your true needs, which can be a tall order today but far from impossible! Feelings, interactions, or a social event or connection feels larger than life, or there’s a tendency for a tug-of-war in a relationship, and it becomes confusing who truly wants what. Stretch yourself if you desire, but know your limits to prevent snapping, and aim to work on getting to a better place of self-awareness. Conflicts now lead to improved situations later. In fact, people are drawn to you, and you might gain a greater understanding of an important person in your life through back and forths.
GeminiYou can feel a strong desire to reach a little higher with your work, services, or support, dear Gemini. The key is to do so in moderation and avoid going over the top. Admittedly, with Venus opposite Jupiter, the planet of plenty, this isn’t very easy to do. Watch for the temptation to escape or mask problems by overdoing pleasures, which is a temporary fix that only delays things and adds to feelings of guilt. If you’ve been doing too much living your life on the sidelines, you can end up feeling overextended and underappreciated. With this transit, it’s best to know your limits. Avoid investing too much in promises for the best results since people may be overestimating their capabilities now. In the same vein, try not to overcommit. Instead, aim to enjoy yourself without needing to do or promise too much.
CancerThere can be much weighing of the pros and cons of a situation today, dear Cancer. It’s hard to come to a clear conclusion with a Venus-Jupiter opposition occurring now and dividing your choices. However, through disagreement or conflict, and perhaps a bit of a stretch, you’ll arrive at a better understanding of a situation. In the meantime, pushing your limits is a temptation. You can experience exaggeration or drama with friends or lovers. Avoid overstating while looking for ways to improve your satisfaction levels if you’re feeling disconnected. Ideally, you’re aiming a little higher for a connection or opportunity, which can work in your favor. You may discover ways or make plans that help you to expand your horizons, audience, creative reach, or love life and affections.
LeoToday’s Venus-Jupiter opposition can be enthusiastic, dear Leo, but the tendency to overdo, overspend, or to feel overwhelmed can seem to dominate. In truth, pulling back a little and reassessing what’s important to you can lead to great things. It may be that you need to stretch or overreach before getting to a place of balance. Both family and career can be strong draws for you these days, but today, it can seem that you have to make a choice or dial both things down. Overcompensating isn’t going to solve problems, but with this transit, it can be a strong tendency. This can very well reflect a conflict between wanting to play it safe and reaching for the stars. Try to avoid blindly reaching out for more when you’re not yet in touch with the source of discontent.
VirgoToday’s Venus-Jupiter opposition can encourage you to reach higher, dear Virgo, but perhaps to go a little too far, which can be a problem if you’re not in touch with what you genuinely want. Watch for pinning your hopes on things that, even if you achieve them, won’t truly satisfy you. In truth, you’re likely to seek more meaning and fulfillment now, and it’s through striving toward these things in your life that you’ll find happiness now, mainly through learning and new experiences and interests, rather than overdoing, overstating, or overindulging. Temporary fixes are tempting but won’t remedy long-standing problems! If you’re too invested in others’ responses today, it can be a restless time. Things not going exactly to script can bring you up and down. Certainly, if the status quo isn’t satisfying you, there are healthy ways to make changes. Cooperation brings rewards and possibly some meaningful feedback.
LibraSomething that begins too quickly is in danger of burning out almost as fast today, dear Libra, with a Venus-Jupiter opposition. However, even if there are miscalculations now, you tend to get back on your feet quickly today. The key is to do your best to avoid taking on too many additional projects as you seek more meaning or enjoyment from life. Also, be aware that others may be promising more than they can deliver today, likely not on purpose. This can also be true on a different level with material things! You may be overvaluing something or someone and, as a result, inclined to overindulge. If you don’t know what you want, you can pin your hopes on the wrong goals, leading to overvaluing things, situations, and people. If you’re feeling a little off, go against the grain and aim to simplify rather than do more. It may seem counterintuitive, but the fewer distractions you have now, the better you’ll understand your needs, which puts you in an advantageous position, particularly with your money, valuables, or career.
ScorpioThe Moon aligns with Venus in your sign today, dear Scorpio, enhancing your charm and influence. Venus also opposes Jupiter, and you’re well-positioned to envision what you genuinely want. Still, avoid rushing forward with incomplete plans. It’s best to keep your expectations reasonable while dreaming of new possibilities. Temporary fixes to uneasy feelings can be tempting but won’t remedy long-standing problems. This transit can push you to reach for more from your life and relationships, but going into this pursuit unprepared won’t lead to satisfying results. You may seek comfort and closeness, but your freedom is also essential to you. There is a compromise or middle ground to work towards, even if it’s not immediately apparent. Getting in touch with what you truly desire is complicated, but if you commit to it, it can be rewarding. Simplify and prioritize for best results.
SagittariusToday’s Moon finds you content to be in the background temporarily, dear Sagittarius. Getting in touch with your inner world can bring benefits now. Once you know your priorities, you’re in great shape to pour your energy and attention into something special. However, with Venus in opposition to your ruler, Jupiter, you can be tempted to overcompensate or overdo to resolve problems of restlessness or discontent, which exacerbates the problem. If you recognize the signs that you’re overreaching today, try to nip it in the bud. For example, doing more for someone who doesn’t truly appreciate your efforts is unlikely to resolve things. If people seem to be draining you, aim to put more energy into something that serves your happiness. The more content you are, the more you radiate the right warmth to others, and greater rewards are waiting for you if you stretch your imagination and still manage to keep your feet on the ground.
CapricornCreativity or romantic feelings are strong but difficult to direct today, dear Capricorn. With Venus in opposition to Jupiter, you can have a hard time figuring out what to do with yourself now. Excess can be an issue across the board, as this aspect seems to encourage looking outside of ourselves for happiness or meaning and purpose. Certainly, discontent and restlessness can motivate you to make improvements. However, without a plan or self-awareness today, there can be some missteps. There can be an epiphany or turning point in a romantic relationship or friendship now, which can be confusing at the moment. Alternatively, there are so many choices on the table that you have difficulty deciding, or expectations mismatch reality, forcing you to take a new look at your social or romantic life. It would be a good idea to carefully consider whether expansion would add stress to your life or multiply joy. You can also be a little more courageous about seeking out the people and situations you value most, and positive opportunities might emerge for connecting with a partner, group, or friend.
AquariusThere could be an epiphany or turning point related to your career or home life today, dear Aquarius, as Venus and Jupiter oppose one another. Promises made now are unlikely to materialize or be fulfilled. There can be restlessness if you’re overwhelmed or if you’re feeling some discontent in either area. For example, if you’ve been overdoing your attention to your personal and professional life, you might now realize that too much is too much, even if you’re doing things you love! If you crave more satisfaction from your pursuits, count this desire as valid and make a plan, but try not to go overboard pushing for temporary fixes. Giving things a bit of time can help you gain perspective. You perform the best now if you love what you do or if you communicate your passion for your work. As such, if you need to take the time to reconnect with your motivation, it’s probably wise to do so.
PiscesWith Venus currently transiting your solar ninth house, dear Pisces, you have a greater interest in learning, connecting, and experiencing the world around you these days. Today’s Venus-Jupiter opposition may make recent excesses on these fronts quite obvious. Too much is too much, even when you’re enjoying yourself! If you absorb so much that you’re stressed out, this completely defeats the purpose. You crave a sense of growth and improvement in your relationships. There can be great ideas and enthusiasm today, but you may want to watch for overshooting. Aim to be self-aware now, as urges for out-of-the-ordinary experiences can lead you to focus on material or empty pleasures rather than what you truly need. Watch for extravagance and possibly speaking too soon about a matter today, and you’ll enjoy it more. Sharing ideas, beliefs, and visions with someone can be satisfying now.
