Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sign, ramping up emotions, dear Aries. Venus recently moved into Aries, and until March 16th, decisions about love and money come more organically. Venus rules partnership and money in your solar chart, and these things more often work in your favor during this cycle. With today’s Saturn-Chiron aspect, circumstances might prompt you to improve your life in areas where you feel insecure, vulnerable, or disorganized. As much as you might like to connect with others or fill your social obligations, your resistance to following all the rules or conforming to others’ expectations can temporarily stand in your way. This is a time to attempt to unravel why you may be shooting yourself in the foot figuratively speaking. Coming to a compromise makes sense now.
TaurusToday’s Moon in your privacy sector suggests a need to keep things on the down low while you recoup some energy, dear Taurus. Venus is now in this same area of your solar chart, where it will visit until March 16th. It can be a time for laying low, generally speaking, and enjoying more time to yourself. Getting extra rest can flatter you. You may be supporting someone or getting help from others behind the scenes. This week is good for recognizing fears about getting ahead, accomplishment, and working. Attitudes no longer serving you well may become painfully obvious, but the good news is that this helps you put them behind you. You can be particularly sensitive to judgment or criticism. Do what you can to avoid dwelling on missed opportunities, but aim to face up to problem areas rather than sweep them under the rug.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your sector of community and networks, dear Gemini. It’s a time of the month to detach yourself just enough to unwind and mingle with more abandon. Venus is in this same sector, and until March 16th, there’s more grace, pleasure, and enjoyment in your social circle. You’re more approachable and companionable. You get along better with the team, or you might share some of your talents or expertise with associates with great results. Still, it can be important this week to examine what may hold you back from heartfully pursuing your desires or goals. There can be ambiguities in your social life and perhaps some frustration if others show less kindness or don’t seem to understand you. Seek ways to manage pressures and responsibilities while not completely ignoring your emotional needs. A balance may seem difficult but is your best bet now.
CancerThe Moon is at the top of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, and you’re more emotionally invested in your performance and duties. Venus is transiting this area of your chart until March 16th, and you’re bringing more creativity, grace, and charm to your work, status, or reputation. You might enjoy your responsibilities more than usual. Today and this week, you’re well-positioned for examining fears related to the direction of a relationship or ambiguity about where you’re headed in life, particularly if you feel some outside pressure to figure it all out. If you’ve been unfocused, now is the time for a call-out and change of plans.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your spirit sector, dear Leo, encouraging you to look outside yourself for emotional nourishment. Venus is in this area of your solar chart until March 16th, and love, a special topic, or goal can inspire you. You are braver with exploring new pleasures or ideas. Transits this week are good for tuning into any fears or concerns you have regarding your long-term goals, education, or free time. If you’ve been coloring outside the lines in these areas, you may receive a small wake-up call to get organized and manage your time more efficiently. If you’ve been too focused on others’ agendas, on the other hand, then it’s time to make room for more freeform activities. In either direction, if the scales are tipping, seeking balance makes sense.
VirgoToday’s Moon stimulates a desire for a more profound connection to someone special or a beloved project, dear Virgo. Venus is in the same area of your chart, and while the Moon will leave early tomorrow, Venus stays until March 16th. Shared resources and finances can get a nice boost during this cycle. Easygoing energy is available to you regarding the more intricate, complex, and tangled side of relationships. Attracting resources from outside sources comes more easily. It’s also a good time to solve money problems with a partner. Today and this week, it would benefit you greatly to examine ways you may have been holding yourself back creatively or in a close relationship. Conflicts with a partner may arise from feeling too obligated or dependent. You can feel a little rebellious if you’re pressured to commit or follow traditions or rules you can’t get behind. Whether you’re leaning more towards going your own way or sticking with the rules, finding a compromise or balance would be helpful.
LibraThe Moon moves through your partnership zone today, dear Libra, stimulating a need for companionship. With Venus in this sector of your solar chart for a longer time–until March 16th–it’s a generally robust period for one-on-one interactions. It may not be the time to tackle deep issues, but it is a good period for pleasant interactions. Making agreements and compromises may be beneficial now. Today and this week, it would benefit you greatly to examine relationship goals and expectations, however, as nurturing a spirit of fun or attention to personal needs can leave you exhausted. Consider that toning down a nonconformist or slapdash approach to your relationships can benefit you in many other life departments.
ScorpioYou seek more harmony and pleasure in your daily routines and working life these days, dear Scorpio, with the Moon in your solar sixth house today and Venus there until March 16th. Social or romantic opportunities can emerge through your job or the pursuit of your duties, health, and wellness. These transits can help restore joy in doing your part or pursuing self-care. Today and this week, consider ways you can better organize your time and the balance between personal interests, family life, and duties or chores. Ambiguities or feeling drained or weak physically can weigh on you now, and you can feel quite behind or overwhelmed. Aim to take things one step at a time, setting realistic goals for yourself on the daily, to gradually get you back in the game and feeling more confident.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your pleasure and joy sector, dear Sagittarius, and you’re in a more playful, creative mood. Venus recently moved into this sector of your solar chart, enhancing your charm until March 16th. It’s a generally good time to explore fun interests and hobbies. However, it would also benefit you today and this week to take a hard look at areas of life where you’ve been refusing to play by the rules and possibly missing out on opportunities as a result. Consider that you may need more structure and order to thrive, particularly with personal interests, pleasurable or creative pursuits, and leisure time, as a disorderly approach to these things can add to insecurities and worries.
CapricornThe Moon spends the day in your sector of heart and home, dear Capricorn, and you gravitate to familiar activities, nesting, and getting comfortable. This transit activates your need for downtime. Centering yourself can be healing and just what you need before busy days ahead. Venus has recently entered this area of your solar chart and, until March 16th, boosts your enjoyment of homey, everyday pursuits. With a Saturn-Chiron transit also in play, it would benefit you greatly today and this week to explore areas where you’ve gone your own way when a more structured, organized, and disciplined approach would improve your life. Aim to identify where a more disciplined or orderly approach would benefit you, as uncertainty on the home front can frequently prevent you from thriving in other areas of your life.
AquariusThe Moon, as it transits your communications sector today, keeps you interested in what’s going on around you, dear Aquarius. Venus has recently moved into this area of your solar chart, and you’re finding more enjoyment in learning, sharing, and connecting. Your need for verbal rapport in your relationships is in the spotlight. Today and this week, you can be particularly sensitive to criticism, however. It can benefit you greatly to focus on strengthening areas of your life that leave you feeling vulnerable. However, since you can’t possibly shield yourself from outside criticism without building a wall around you, working on self-acceptance makes sense. Consider that, with current transits, you may be harder on yourself than is healthy.
PiscesIt’s a generally good time to settle down or settle in, dear Pisces, with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house today. It’s also useful for turning your attention to the practical side of your life. Fortunately, with Venus in this sector of your solar chart until March 16th, you’re finding more enjoyment in comfortable activities. Patiently building something can be appealing. It would benefit you greatly today and this week to consider ways to bring more structure to your financial life, as disorganization or a rebellious attitude in this area can impact your ability to unwind and truly enjoy your downtime.
