Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith a Venus-Uranus square today, dear Aries, you may need to distance or detach yourself from something to understand where your heart lies. The Moon spending the day in your partnership sector suggests you’re more invested in your relationships than usual. Still, this transit means others’ reactions are a little unpredictable, and yours can be as well. Watch for impulsive moves, including impulse buys, that stem from inner restlessness rather than genuine need or desire. If reasonable, a sudden whim or desire can lead to something interesting, but sweeping actions are probably not wise today. Your craving for variety in your social life is strong right now, yet a big part of you would prefer to stick with the familiar or usual. Watch for
TaurusToday brings natural energy for work, but unpredictable attention spans or energy levels, dear Taurus. A career or reputation matter might disrupt plans or throw you for a loop, but this could very well be the time to shake things up a little! Aim to tune into your need for change while being careful not to jump into something before you’re ready or prepared. The same old routine can be unsatisfying, and your desire for a change of pace is intense. If you’re not in touch with what you truly want, you leave yourself vulnerable to allowing impulsive desires to lead you astray. Otherwise, this is a fine time to approach things a little differently. Once you recognize your boredom with the usual routine or old patterns of relationships, you’re ready to take things into your own hands and enjoy a change of pace.
GeminiWhile you’ve enjoyed some opening up and rewarding interactions, dear Gemini, today’s energies are on the unpredictable side. Part of you craves comfort and closeness, while another part needs space. An unexpected situation or realization may destabilize your feelings, and you need time to process it. For best results, and before going out on a limb pursuing your desires, aim to connect with what you truly want! Today’s frustrations can merely point to an unacknowledged need for a change of pace, and the sooner you take this into your own hands, the better. Considering the big picture helps you detach from the little problems.
CancerWhile you recognize the need for stability and routine in some life departments, dear Cancer, you can experience restlessness or rebellious feelings today. Your feelings or others’ affections for you can be intense one minute, and then they cool down the next, but in the end, you may very well learn something new about yourself or a relationship. You may only need a breather or the benefits of a change of pace. You may get the courage to do something new, for example. There can be some disruptions regarding a friendship or confusion about boundaries. Still, it can be helpful to detach yourself just enough to step out of your comfort zone and discover new ways of interacting.
LeoYou’re doing things a bit differently these days, dear Leo, particularly with your approach to your career, responsibilities, or reputation. While you’re heading toward improvements, there can be some stops and starts. Today’s focus should be on new relating patterns rather than falling back on dysfunctional ones. It may be better to avoid acting on whims, as emotions stirred today may be transient. The source of unrest is more deserving of your attention! What you want from the world (or a career) and what you want from your relationships may not seem to mesh well today, but you’ll work this out, finding every reason to learn from the challenges and differences of the day.
VirgoYou recognize the need for a change with your routines, diets, fitness, or work today, dear Virgo. Today’s Venus-Uranus square reminds you that you need to change things up once in a while to challenge yourself and excel. While energies today are a bit disruptive in spots, as long as you respect the free spirit within, it can be a learning experience! You’re in good shape for identifying areas that require a fix. You’re ultimately gravitating to improved routines and more structure or discipline in your daily affairs, but a rebellious streak emerges today that can throw you a bit off course. Avoid making hasty decisions, keeping in mind that reactions may not last long.
LibraYou’re in generally good shape for bringing more structure to your life, dear Libra, but part of you could be rebelling against the monotony of it today! With a Venus-Uranus square, you may feel a little on edge or confused about your desires and deeper feelings, and relationship moves might be sudden and disruptive. It’s best to avoid abruptness. Giving everyone space and recognizing your need for a break or a change of pace can be the remedy. Consider that the tendency is to miss the mark today, even with good intentions, particularly when judging your audience or even your own feelings. Aim to feed your need for more mental stimulation, but it’s best not to make sweeping or abrupt moves for now.
ScorpioWith the Moon in your solar twelfth house all day, dear Scorpio, the need to recharge and replenish yourself emotionally is strong. Some withdrawal can be helpful and therapeutic. However, you may not be entirely sure whether you want your space or want to be close to others as Venus forms a square to Uranus today. People can be hard to please under this transit, including you. It may be that you need some refreshment or a change, and restlessness emerges if you aren’t in touch with this need. Still, you could discover new and interesting ways to relate to one another. Releasing a burden can be liberating.
SagittariusToday’s Moon encourages your need for more attention to your happiness goals and dreams, dear Sagittarius. You’re seeking more variety and mental excitement, but a tendency to rebel against routine can stir some unrest with a Venus-Uranus square in play. Any attempts to lock someone down to a commitment can backfire! People need space today, and so do you, and honoring this could be the answer to your problems. This transit can make it challenging to get your message across, but it’s temporary. Consider that you can be restless with routine or monotony, and a change of pace may be in order.
CapricornWhims can take hold, making it tempting to take a risk with your money or your heart today, dear Capricorn. Or, a clash of values with someone can prompt a rebellious streak. While you recognize the need to buckle down these days, you can feel a bit resistant today, even if you created the rules for yourself! Instead of following sudden desires, try to pinpoint and understand the reason behind your restlessness and tension. It’s important not to respond to all urges, particularly if they involve impulsive spending or pushing a situation that needs more time to develop and unfold. It’s a time to see that a new approach to your life, particularly your money or belongings, may be worth your while.
AquariusVenus is currently transiting your sign, dear Aquarius, and today, it clashes with your ruler, Uranus. Unpredictability in your home or family life can interfere with your plans and enjoyment. Restless feelings can also take over in spots today, and it may be best to honor your need for extra excitement by doing something different or shaking up the routine a little. You might experiment with possibilities and approaches but avoid sweeping moves for the best results since desires can sometimes lead us on a path quite counter to our true needs, which may be the case today. However, you can learn more about yourself through a bit of discontent.
PiscesEven though you appreciate the benefits of more structure in your life these days, dear Pisces, part of you feels rebellious in the face of rules or routines today. It can be tempting to jump into or out of a situation impulsively today. While detours can lead you to a more comfortable understanding of how you honestly feel about a matter, it’s best to avoid making abrupt, sweeping, or confusing moves. Honor the need for change by doing so in steps. It’s also a good idea to watch for blurting out something that doesn’t represent your true feelings with today’s Venus-Uranus square. It takes more work to get in touch with what you want temporarily.
