Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWhile your initiative is strong, the morning can find you a little too impatient for your own good, dear Aries. As the day advances, however, you’re far more likely to pace and enjoy yourself. Venus enters your solar eleventh house for a stay until February 25th. It’s a light, easy influence that supports your friendships, whether they’re current, new, or developing. This transit comes when Mercury has just turned retrograde in this same area of your solar chart, complicating things somewhat. Venus here helps soften rough edges. You might enjoy some experimentation with projects, endeavors, and connections. It can be a good time for money from a business.
TaurusVenus begins its transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Taurus. Until the 25th, this cycle boosts your public or professional appeal and enjoyment of the pursuit of your goals. There could be social or romantic opportunities through functions or work connections, or the social/creative side of your responsibilities is in stronger focus. You are coming across as charming, helpful, and attractive, if a little distant emotionally. You might naturally work on polishing your look, image, style, and act, and it’s a great time to do these things. Advancing your career now can involve being especially friendly and personable. This morning, watch for impatient actions or communications, after which you’ll find it easier to slow down and enjoy the moment.
GeminiToday, Venus begins its transit in harmony with your sign, dear Gemini, and will stick around in your solar ninth house until the 25th. Your ideals or hopes about love and money are set high during this cycle. It’s a good time to un-complicate your life and relationships in some significant manner. A person or topic might inspire you, and you might enjoy mind-expanding experiences. With love, pleasure, and relationship, a spirit of adventure or discovery can take hold. You’re a little more spontaneous, brave, or adventurous with these things, more likely to jump in first, then ask questions later. After a rather hurried or tense morning, the day tends to shape up nicely and smoothly, particularly on a social level.
CancerThe Moon heads into your sector of home, safety, and familiarity today, dear Cancer, and you’re ready to unwind. While early today can stir tensions or buried frustrations, the day advances with more ease. Venus enters an intimate, complex sector of your solar chart today, influencing this house until the 25th. It’s a transit that can pull up important themes of passion, attachment, and intensity in your love life or relationship with yourself. You more easily attract support, and you can be more involved with others’ resources and talents. If you could use a loan or benefit from smoothing over differences with financial or intimate matters, this can be the best time of the year to do so. Your love nature runs a little deeper now.
LeoFrom today until the 25th, Venus transits the sign opposite to yours, dear Leo, making it a great time to pay special attention to your relationships. You seek harmony and agreement. It’s a good time to bring more balance to your life, make peace with people, express your interest and affection, and go to greater lengths to understand others. The three-plus weeks ahead are strong for attracting or enhancing close relationships. You tend to seek more feedback or company. Mercury has just turned retrograde in the same area of your solar chart, introducing some complications, but Venus moving in helps soften and enhance your approach. Early today, try not to give in to impatience but do consider the need for action.
VirgoThe Moon’s move into your resources sector today stimulates a desire to get comfortable, dear Virgo. While there can be early-morning tensions that rile you up, the day advances much more effortlessly. Venus enters your work and health sector today, starting a favorable cycle for bringing harmony to your daily life. Mercury just turned retrograde in this sector, and Venus here can help soften rough edges. You’re inclined to show your affection through help and service. You feel more joy in doing your part with your chores or work. You might seek wellness treatments during this cycle, and they can do much to improve your mood.
LibraThe Moon moves into your sign for a couple of days, dear Libra, and emotional needs become clearer, and perhaps insistent! It’s a time in the lunar cycle for a more direct relationship with your emotional needs and wants. Venus enters a compatible sign, moving into harmony with your sign until the 25th, which is good news for your personal appeal, enjoyment, and love life. It also improves your ability to see and judge value, and this benefits you on both personal and financial levels. Mercury has just turned retrograde in this sector, and Venus here brings a little more balance and smoothness to the mix. There is a playful and deserving quality that you’re expressing, and it works in your favor.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, dear Scorpio, signaling a subtle shift inward. It’s a good time in the lunar month to unwind, rest, and reflect. Another inward-turning trend begins today but lasts several weeks: Venus enters your home and family sector. Mercury has just turned retrograde in this area of your solar chart, and Venus here helps smooth things out a little and soften your approach to home and family. You might bring more harmony, diplomacy, balance, or beauty to the home environment. You’re a little more protective with your heart in the weeks ahead. You might take this time to connect with and learn about your inner needs. Aim to build up your confidence rather than push your boundaries.
SagittariusEnergy that’s a little more outgoing and light enters your chart today, dear Sagittarius. The Moon heads into your social sector for just over two days, stirring your need to connect, mingle, or pursue your happiness goals. Venus moves into your communications sector for a stay until the 25th, and you’ll take more pleasure in daily affairs, connecting with old or new friends, exploring mental interests and topics, and learning new things. Love and communications tie in strongly with one another in this cycle, emphasizing communicating with friends and lovers, connecting with people who have similar intellectual interests with you, or finding love through telecommunications or learning environments. You’re expressing yourself with more charm. Mercury has just turned retrograde in this sector, and Venus here helps smooth things over a little.
CapricornWhile the morning can feel tense or can seem to un-bury frustrations, dear Capricorn, the day smooths out as it continues. Venus moves out of your sign and into your values sector today, where it will transit until the 25th. Affections stabilize during this cycle, and, more than usual, you value simple pleasures. Circumstances seem to frame your natural talents nicely. You have more concern for your future security and what you’d like to build to achieve long-term comfort goals. Income increases are possible. Even so, you might spend more on comfort items. With a strong emphasis on your solar second house of resources, your material desires can be powerful!
AquariusVenus moves into your sign for a stay until February 25th, dear Aquarius, bringing on a fine trend for feeling comfortable in your own skin and for attracting what you want into your life. You’re freer with your feelings and more inclined to pamper or enjoy yourself more fully. This ingress comes when Mercury has just turned retrograde in your sign, and Venus can help pick up some of the slack. You radiate good energy, attracting positive feedback. Venus in Aquarius boosts your warmth, charm, and personal attractiveness. At the same time, it helps you build up self-acceptance. While it may not be the most disciplined cycle, it reminds you to pay more attention to pleasure.
PiscesVenus moves into house twelve of your solar chart today, dear Pisces, where it will travel until the 25th. This move can mark a winding-down period with your affections or a period when you’re reconsidering specific projects, attitudes, or attachments. You seem to need time to get in better touch with your own feelings in the weeks ahead, and with much activity in this area of your chart already, this can be the case in many life departments. There can be a greater love of private moments, and help might come from behind the scenes. Still, whether or not you enjoy being under the radar at this time, it’s a necessary process as you get your feelings sorted. External or material achievement is less important to you than what’s going on in your private life at this time.
