Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMercury heads toward a harmonious aspect with Jupiter, dear Aries, and communications or incoming news can be positive, aiding decision-making and boosting your mood. It might help to clarify a recent misunderstanding. Still, today and early tomorrow, you can be a little misguided in your compassion with a Venus-Neptune square occurring in your sectors of faith. You might experience a slight letdown or become aware that something you were expecting might not come to pass. Others’ opinions and beliefs could leave you feeling deflated and frustrated if they lack the understanding you have of a situation. However, putting some illusions aside can be healthy as you make room for more realizable goals. You are unlikely to be as productive as you’d like to be, but you may need a break!
TaurusFriendships can bring in support and enjoyment, dear Taurus. You are in a friendly mood with someone who’s proven themselves to you in the past, and new connections seem favorable. Current energies support compromises, negotiations, and breathing new life into friendships. You have a stronger sense of fun and are open to learning and doing new things. Conversations can be very fruitful and even inspiring. But while you’re likely to have some wonderful ideas now, a Venus-Neptune aspect can cloud your vision later today and early tomorrow. It can also play with your mood, motivation, and drive, but this is temporary. You could feel high one minute and low the next. The trick is to keep your expectations of others at the human level!
GeminiYou tend to pay particular attention to your favorite things, and taking special care of them is enjoyable today, dear Gemini. You want to understand one another and tune into your desires and ambitions. Fortunately, cooperation comes easily today, and conversations can be heartwarming and helpful. However, we’re heading toward a Venus-Neptune square, and you can face confusing evasiveness in others, something is up in the air, or there can be frustrations with what’s left unsaid. This transit can point to a lack of general direction that weighs on a relationship. The primary key to enjoying yourself involves letting go of too-high expectations of yourself, another person, or a relationship itself — it can be very freeing!
CancerFinding mutual interests may be an excellent way to smooth relationships over today, dear Cancer. You can feel empowered by your beliefs and ideas and through your current studies or interests. Developing your skills can be especially enjoyable and motivating. Fortunately, the ability to put things into perspective opens up doors for you. Positive feedback is likely, and it can boost your general outlook. But with a Venus-Neptune square influencing later today and early tomorrow, wishful thinking can cloud your view. It may not be easy to make room for and enjoy your duties with dreams and fantasies filling your mind. If motivation levels are waning and restlessness takes over, you might quickly tire of the mundane or routine in your life. You might wonder where you stand, but there are more questions than answers temporarily. If you’re overcrowding your mind with unrealizable goals and they’re interfering with what you’re doing now, consider putting them behind you to make room for dreams that genuinely encourage you.
LeoYour conversations and interactions can be particularly forward-looking, dear Leo, inspiring much optimism. You approach your practical affairs with positivity, and there can be good news about your work or reputation. A previous problem along these lines can be resolved. Later today and into tomorrow, watch for a tendency to pick and choose which cues from your environment to see and which ones to overlook. There can be a veil over your eyes regarding your relationships and perhaps some blurred boundaries or uncertain feelings. It isn’t easy to be objective with a Venus-Neptune square coming into play. You may be attracted to what you can’t have or what’s just out of reach. Once you let go of unreasonable expectations, you can get into a far better emotional space.
VirgoToday’s energies are mostly smooth for your thoughts and ideas, dear Virgo. A lingering problem can find a resolution now, and it’s satisfying as Mercury returns to its harmony with Jupiter. However, events or feelings happening later today can remind you of the need to draw boundaries. The desires of a significant other can be a mystery, not necessarily in a fun way! Or, you might pin so much hope in someone or something that you forget you’re the one in charge of making yourself happy. In truth, a Venus-Neptune square influencing later today and tomorrow makes it tricky to accept that happiness is found within and not outside of you. Emotions and affections can be hard to make sense of right now, so do your best to hold off on drawing up conclusions. Aim to return to practical problems on a day when you’re more ruled by logic and reason than by complicated emotions and expectations.
LibraDirecting your brain to the more positive and supportive information around you today is easier than usual, dear Libra. Reaching out can boost a family or intimate relationship. Later today, however, an impending Venus-Neptune square makes it challenging to see ahead of you. There’s a tendency to feed previously held beliefs about someone and, in the process, not honestly face reality. Save important decisions for a better day, as you may be glossing over vital details. You may need to let things flow and trust in the process. Try to keep your emotional distance until you see things more clearly–there’s no need to make half-hearted commitments.
ScorpioWith the Moon’s move into your partnership sector, dear Scorpio, listening to or helping out someone special can be satisfying. It’s a time of the lunar month for gathering up more strength through your connections. Fortunately, it’s entirely possible that good news or reviews come in, boosting your spirits. A Venus-Neptune square colors later today and tomorrow, however, which can stir restlessness. Situations may be up in the air, and others are vague and give off confusing signals. You may not feel close enough to someone or your heart, and a sense that you’re not on solid ground with others can leave you feeling listless. While you’re highly perceptive, wishful thinking can cloud your vision during this transit. This aspect may even convince you that borrowing from the future is a good idea. Whether purchasing beyond your means or investing emotions and energy into something unlikely to pan out, try to cut the behavior short.
SagittariusA problem might unblock as new information flows in today, dear Sagittarius. You’re looking ahead, and connecting with your innate optimism feels good. Later today, a Venus-Neptune square comes into play, and it can leave you wanting. Distractions could create a little chaos, but while it’s hard to communicate your desires temporarily, it’s best not to let others guess them, as it can lead to frustration. Wishful thinking is fine if it inspires you or motivates you to go after what you want. However, if it only serves to leave you feeling unfulfilled, you should probably let it go and get on with your day. Focusing on realizable goals or appreciating what’s already in place will bring the most satisfaction. Even so, wistful feelings remind you to feed your needs for more inspired living going forward.
CapricornYou’re in a creating and sharing mood with the Moon’s move into your sector of joy, dear Capricorn. Fortunately, it’s natural to rise above problems and make the best of circumstances today. Your imagination takes on more power and influence than usual later today, with a Venus-Neptune square forming. You benefit if you use this transit for relaxing or creative activities. However, the tendency with this aspect can be to pin your hopes on something unlikely to transpire. Wishful thinking can alert you to areas where you can make improvements. However, you might want to watch for making half-hearted commitments or statements as moods are changeable, and your vision may be a bit off. Aim to get in touch with your real needs rather than chase whims.
AquariusYou prefer familiar and emotionally safe circumstances today, dear Aquarius, as the Moon moves into your solar fourth house. It’s about feeling out and enjoying your comfort zone. Rebuilding some emotional strength makes sense right now. At the same time, you stand to gain valuable insight, or perhaps some inspiration, from your communications or personal musings. Later today, however, it’s not easy to assess the value of people and things objectively, as Venus heads toward a square to Neptune. The tendency may be to chase a pipe dream or invest emotions, energy, or money into something that fails to truly satisfy. Instead, a slight disappointment with a friend occurs if wires get crossed or there is an error of omission. It may be best to put off spending and lending just for now. If a plan or goal now seems less possible, it might only need some refinements. However, if it’s just not serving you well, make room for one that does.
PiscesIt’s an enjoyable time to learn and guide, dear Pisces. Your communications are so open that you attract opportunities. It’s a fine time for positive reinforcement, kind gestures, good news, and compliments. Still, with Venus heading toward a square with Neptune, your feelings, needs, and desires are complicated. There is a tendency to look outside of yourself for something you imagine will make you happier or more fulfilled. However, it’s a wild goose chase and might even lead to more profound feelings of discontent. Aim to look within and get in better touch with what may be missing from your life and then make plans to work on it.
