Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Venus in your privacy sector receiving a square from Mars in your house of communications today, dear Aries, there can be tensions with too many things on your mind. Keeping things light or business-minded is probably best. However, there can be some inner frustration or angst experienced now that can be hard to ignore. There could be clashes if you, or the people around you, are overcome with impatience. Sensitivity to feelings is not easy temporarily. You may later regret hasty actions or words, particularly in love relationships. The Moon’s move into your solar fifth house can, on the one hand, turn up the dial on the drama, but on the other, it might help you find release from tension through entertainment.
TaurusThe Moon heads into your sector of home and family today, dear Taurus, encouraging you to wind down and center yourself. However, Venus and Mars clash today, and tempers are quick to flare if things aren’t going as planned. Your desires can feel overwhelming but equally challenging to fulfill. Frustrations can emerge over someone’s insensitivity. Or, you may think that filling a sudden desire is the answer to all your problems, but it’s probably only a distraction. You could feel torn between serving your own needs and pleasing someone, and a sense that you’re out of rhythm with a partner can emerge. You might choose to roll with the emotional excitement by keeping your expectations in check and enjoying a little competitiveness with others. After all, frustrations now can help fuel motivation to do better.
GeminiThe Moon’s move into your communications sector brings on a busy, connected theme for over two days, dear Gemini. However, with a Venus-Mars square, love rhythms and relating patterns can be a little off today. It takes more work than usual to feel satisfied. It’s also challenging to get what you want without causing a big stir. Impatience with getting our needs met can lead to all sorts of minor tensions. Since Mars is in your sign, someone could seek a refined approach from you and misinterpret your passion as impatience or insensitivity. Watch for impulsive moves today. Feelings run hot and cold, primarily due to timing problems. If you find your emotional center today, it can be an excellent time to analyze a matter with a friend or find clues to a problem.
CancerThe Moon moves into your resources sector, dear Cancer, and you crave more stability and security. With a Venus-Mars transit today, however, interactions can be tense, or people around you can be temperamental and competitive. You could find yourself competing with someone over whose needs and desires should be paramount, but it’s likely not going anywhere. As much as you’d like to keep the peace and harmonize, some discontent or misunderstanding could create tension. It’s wise to protect information or feelings that you usually want to keep quiet, as there is a tendency to be impulsive, which can be something you regret later.
LeoThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Leo, sparking up your feelings and waking you up emotionally. Misunderstandings are possible with today’s Venus-Mars square, and they may have to do with power dynamics, sharing, and intimacy. If frustrations have been building in these areas, they could reach a head now. How someone approaches you or speaks to you could be irritating, and people can be brusque or impatient, stepping on your feelings in the process. Try not to take these things to heart, but if you need to get something out of your system, you might feel moved to do so now. Recognize that, for the time being, it takes a lot of work to satisfy both yourself and someone close to you. Compromising or letting things blow over may be a better solution, although challenging. Instead, there can be inner conflicts to manage, and it’s best not to jump into action before you’ve thought things through.
VirgoThe Moon’s move into your privacy sector today signals the need for extra rest or a break from the action, dear Virgo. However, differences are in the spotlight in your relationships, temporarily making it difficult to see eye to eye with people close to you. Conflict with someone in authority is possible, or you might feel uncomfortable with a person who is coming on too strong. With Venus square Mars, people seem competitive rather than cooperative, and disconnects are likely about values, goals, or ambitions. Consider that people may not entirely know what they want and can pursue something they don’t have that they think is the answer to their restlessness.
LibraThe Moon moves into your social sector, dear Libra, and you’re looking to unwind, share, and interact more informally. However, today’s Venus-Mars square can create some tension or timing problems. Usually, this is not so much about differences in opinion than it is about differences in approaches — either too aggressive and insensitive or not direct enough. Anyone trying to push their agenda on you will have a hard time. It can also be challenging to be productive without succumbing to distractions. Impulse buys can be more tempting than usual, especially if you’re feeling unrest but not sure why or what is at the heart of your restlessness.
ScorpioThe Moon moves to the top of your solar chart today, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to pay more attention to your obligations or longer-term goals. However, it’s not straightforward to fine-tune your approach precisely how someone else wants you to behave. Today’s Venus-Mars square tends to highlight imbalances. Passions run high, and you could feel caught in the crossfire. Your best bet is to tap into frustrations and snatch up the excess energy for creative inspiration. Consider that impatience is likely what’s tripping you (and others) up more than anything under this temperamental influence. A stand-off of sorts could be what pushes your feelings into your awareness. Still, it would help to consciously tame impulsiveness now. Watch that you don’t hyper-focus on a particular desire that, when attained, is not truly satisfying.
SagittariusThe Moon heads into harmony with your sign today, dear Sagittarius, encouraging your optimism and spirit. With your relationships, watch for impulsiveness today, since a Venus-Mars square can point to quick reactions. Someone’s behavior can be difficult to stomach or even offensive. Or, desires can suddenly flood your senses, but try your best not to treat them like emergencies. True desires stick around and don’t have such a short shelf life or timetable. Remove yourself from frustrating circumstances, if possible, to get a change of scenery, which sometimes leads to a new perspective. Aim to explore what you truly want. Challenges now can result in new understanding, whether of others or your own needs.
CapricornCompetitiveness is in the air today, dear Capricorn, with a Venus-Mars square stirring some discontent. You can be feeling rather sensitive, but if you give off the impression that your skin is thick, which you often do, you could end up with hurt feelings. There can be significant differences between what people want and what people are willing to give right now, and this can be the source of a lot of frustration! Tone things down as much as possible, and don’t be afraid to let others know that you may be vulnerable right now. Fortunately, this influence is temporary, and a bit of unrest could lead to new and improved directions.
AquariusIt’s best to seek a middle ground in any conflicts you might have today, dear Aquarius, but don’t worry too much if others don’t promptly meet you halfway. Sometimes clashes don’t have quick resolutions, but they may help redirect your energy in the future. With a Venus-Mars square, tensions today tend to revolve around differences in values and approaches. Internal conflicts are more likely to be about whether to take a leap of faith or a risk or to stick with what’s known and familiar. You may feel out of sync and at odds with others temporarily and end up with hurt feelings. Impatience with others and with processes can figure strongly now. Impulsiveness with money can be an issue as well. Consider that if you are not in touch with your true desires, you may be chasing superficial ones now.
PiscesVenus and Mars form a square aspect today, dear Pisces, pointing to sudden urges and changes. Tension can be thick in the air, and people close to you may be brusque or demanding. You could feel that they’re more interested in satisfying their own desires than attending to your needs. Others’ opinions may clash with yours. Don’t completely shut out information, even if it’s coming to you in an unattractive package, but don’t accept unfair behavior. Waiting on an outcome or agreement with high expectations can put undue pressure on your life. Instead, aim to keep yourself busy. Fortunately, the Moon’s move into your sector of work and health can help you focus on something practical and constructive.
