Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may wrestle with a bit of doubt today, dear Aries. The temptation to agree with others is strong but could lead to misrepresentation or problems later. Alternatively, if someone seems to be undermining you, know that it stems from their insecurities, and perhaps they’re trying to get a rise out of you only to feed their own need for attention. As the day advances, the mood shifts, and conversations are rewarding. Also today, Venus moves into a supportive, happy place in your solar chart, where it will transit until the 26th. It’s a time for seeking out people and situations that make you feel at ease about expressing who you are. This transit is light and easy–it especially supports your friendships, whether they’re current, new, or developing. It happens when Mercury has just turned retrograde, and Venus can help soften some rough edges. You might enjoy some experimentation with projects, endeavors, and connections. It can be a good time for money from a business.
TaurusChanges are in the air, and they seem quite positive, dear Taurus, but you can be experiencing some self-doubt today. It’s a valuable process, even though it can feel a little deflating initially. There are solutions to problems to be found from circumstances now, so aim to take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. Your intuition will be back on track shortly. Aim to observe and process; don’t go along with something if your heart isn’t in it. Your confidence increases as the day progresses. Also today, Venus moves to the top of your solar chart and will transit your career and reputation sector until the 26th. In the coming weeks, others find you helpful, charming, attractive, and kind on a professional or public level. It’s a time for catching some breaks if needed. You can be more at ease in public, although perhaps not as flowing when love is intimate and personal. Your relationship with those in authority is warmer and friendlier. There can be important connections and contacts. It’s a time when you enjoy pursuing and setting 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.
GeminiThere can be some confusion revolving around boundaries in relationships, dear Gemini, with the Sun and Chiron in conflict today. It’s not an ideal day for bold actions and sweeping decisions or statements. Keeping a low profile until you sort things out is probably for the best. Aim to take a breather if things are not coming together well. Later today, you can feel emotionally awakened, wanting to start fresh. Also today, Venus heads into your spirit sector for a transit lasting until the 26th. Your style and attractiveness are well-received in the weeks ahead, and you increasingly let go of overthinking your love life or feelings. You seek unique experiences, people, topics, and ideas. In the weeks ahead, you’re more outgoing and spirited. Sharing ideas and experiences is fun, rewarding, and even relationship-enhancing. It’s a good time to “un-complicate” your life and relationships in some significant manner. A person or topic might inspire you, and mind-expanding experiences are most enjoyable.
CancerVenus enters your intimacy sector today, dear Cancer, and in the weeks ahead, you’re in great shape to work on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. This transit sticks with you until the 26th. Financially speaking, you may find backing or support, and a need to share some of your deeper feelings with someone special can emerge. If there has been tricky energy in your life related to such things as power dynamics, loans, or debts, this is a time for smoothing things over and coming to more beneficial agreements. It’s a transit that can pull up important themes of passion, attachment, and intensity in your love life or relationship with yourself. Today’s energies are initially uncertain or indecisive but friendly as the day advances. Fortunately, even if there are missteps, you feel as if you’re growing.
LeoFrom today until the 26th, Venus moves through the sign opposite yours, dear Leo, making it a great time to pay special attention to your relationships. You seek harmony and agreement. It’s also 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. You’re in excellent shape for attracting or enhancing close relationships, and you tend to seek more feedback or company. In the first half of today, you might feel temporarily demotivated and extra sensitive to your surroundings or what people say. While you sense a need for changes and improvements, a solid plan can elude you. Still, short lulls can be motivating, and you likely need a bit of time to connect with inspiration.
VirgoWith the Sun’s square to Chiron influencing the first half of the day, dear Virgo, there can be ambiguities or a sense that energies are clogged. It’s temporary, and it may prompt a critical rethink or change. If you’re questioning a recent endeavor or plan, pace yourself so that stress is minimal. Self-doubt and hesitance can have you feeling off your game temporarily. Small personal triumphs can be had and enjoyed, and as the day progresses, courage and confidence build. Also today, Venus enters your work and health sector for a stay until the 26th. You may find work or health routines more enjoyable in the weeks ahead, and benefits in these areas are possible. You’ll be motivated to bring more harmony to your everyday life. There may be increased social opportunities through your work or daily routines. You feel more joy in doing your part, and you could seek wellness treatments during this cycle–they can do much to improve your mood.
LibraVenus enters a compatible sign today, dear Libra, and will move in harmony with your sign until the 26th. It’s good news for your personal appeal, general enjoyment, and love life. This transit also improves your ability to see and judge value, benefiting you on both personal and financial levels. There is a playful and deserving quality that you’re expressing, and it works in your favor. You might enjoy new avenues for entertainment, leisure, and pleasure. You’re putting more heart into your hobbies, relationships, or art. It’s a time to express yourself more freely and happily, create, and share. In the first half of today, it’s not straightforward to gain trust, but consider that people tend to be so rooted in their issues that they can’t see others clearly right now. Tonight and tomorrow, you are likely to come up with some innovative ideas.
ScorpioVenus enters your home and family sector today, dear Scorpio, where it will transit until the 26th. It’s a fine transit for smoothing and softening your personal life, home, and family. There can be more harmony, diplomacy, balance, or beauty in your home environment. You’re a little more protective of your heart in the weeks ahead. Taking this time to connect with and learn about your inner needs can be most rewarding. Aim to build your confidence rather than push your boundaries during this cycle. People tend to be stuck in their issues in the first half of today. Fortunately, you’re heading toward some beautiful changes, and you may need to deal with some doubt before pressing forward. Aim to give yourself some time to recharge after a spell of feeling drained and indecisive. As the day advances, focus on relating happily, kindly, and more joyfully.
SagittariusStarting today and running until the 26th, Venus blesses your communications sector, dear Sagittarius. As the goddess of love and harmony, Venus here brings pleasing energy for expressing yourself, social curiosity, learning (as long as it’s enjoyable), and sharing ideas with others. You are more charming and diplomatic, and there could be good publicity or news in the weeks ahead. Love and communications tie in strongly with one another in this cycle, emphasizing communicating, connecting with people who have similar intellectual interests as you, or finding love through telecommunications or learning environments. You’re expressing yourself with more charm. Mercury has just turned retrograde, and Venus in your communication sector helps smooth things over a little. In the first half of today, take your time with big decisions. Being on the fence isn’t always comfortable, but it can be healthy sometimes. The day advances with more detachment and curiosity.
CapricornWhile you can feel undecided or doubting in the first half of the day, dear Capricorn, the day smooths out as it continues. As well, a short lull can reinvigorate you, connecting you with more authentic inspiration. Venus moves out of your sign and into your values sector today, where it will transit until the 26th. Affections stabilize during this cycle, and, more than usual, you value simple pleasures. You have more concern for your future security and what you’d like to build to achieve long-term comfort goals. Income boosts are possible, although you might spend more on comfort items. Circumstances frame your natural talents nicely. It’s a great time to find more pleasure in the world of the five senses, enjoy simple pastimes and entertainment, and take special care of your valuables or prized personal possessions.
AquariusVenus moves into your sign today for a stay until the 26th, dear Aquarius, sparking a trend for attracting what you want into your life. You’re freer with your feelings, more comfortable in your own skin, and inclined to pamper or enjoy yourself more fully. You radiate good energy, attracting positive feedback in the weeks ahead. 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 and personal enjoyment. In the first half of today, communications can go awry, and indecision or doubt can set in temporarily. Your spirit improves as the day advances, and you catch a wave of inspiration.
PiscesEnergies waver a little, dear Pisces, but you’re in mostly good spirits. You may deal with doubt or fears about what you can handle. It’s likely a fleeting feeling, and although it may not seem productive, you might discover something important about yourself if you examine things. Today simply requires some reorientation. As the day progresses, your confidence is likely to build. Also today, Venus heads into your soul sector, where it will stay until the 26th. This transit can point to a winding-down period for your affections or a period when you need extra time to get in better touch with your feelings. There can be a greater love of private moments during this cycle. External or material achievement seems less important to you, and your personal life assumes bigger proportions. There’s a little more mystery in your love life or with your feelings.
