Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn some ways, this can be a homebody kind of day for you, dear Aries. Even so, your mind is often somewhere else! You may be playing it safe, but you are exploring possibilities in your head, and you can very well get to exciting places in the process. Venus moves to the top of your solar chart today, and until February 16th, others can be especially intrigued by your talents, performance, or services. In turn, you can be motivated to improve these things! Events in the weeks ahead may stir your ambition and gently push you to do your best. Because Mars and Mercury are already in this area of your solar chart, you’re in a phase where your performance and enjoyment of your work or responsibilities are a strong focus. You are coming across as charming, helpful, and attractive, if a little distant emotionally. You bring a friendlier manner to your professional or public dealings. It’s a great time for a reputation boost.
TaurusVenus begins its harmonious transit to your sign today, dear Taurus, boosting your appeal and sense of adventure in the weeks ahead. Learning, publishing, and communicating are in stronger favor while this cycle is in play (until February 16th), and personal magnetism runs high in the weeks ahead. With Mercury and Mars already in this same zone of your solar chart, some friendly competition can help encourage happy improvements. It may be a time when someone inspires you or you enjoy pleasant, mind-expanding experiences. You can be somewhat less tolerant of problems or complications in your relationships, however. You seem to do better in situations outside of the routine with romance, business, and shopping. Sharing ideas and beliefs is fun, rewarding, and even relationship-enhancing. With so many influences in this part of your chart, you’re certainly more willing to step outside your usual routines and live more spiritedly.
GeminiVenus moves into your intimacy sector for a month’s stay today, dear Gemini, inspiring you to work on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. If you’re not intimately involved, this is about your relationship with yourself! In other words, you’re seeing your deeper nature in a better light. Financially speaking, you may find backing or support in this cycle that lasts until February 16th. Shared resources can get a nice boost. If there has been tricky energy with power dynamics, loans, alimony, or taxes, this is a time for smoothing things over and coming to more beneficial agreements. Your interactions can be pleasantly spicy or intimacy-boosting. The Moon spends today in your solar second house, and comfort needs assume particular importance. Attractions can be intense today, but you can also feel unsatisfied if you sense you’re out of balance.
CancerVenus begins its transit of your partnership sector today, dear Cancer, where it will visit until February 16th. You may be attracting helpful people into your life now. While Venus moving through your opposing sign does tend to favor a partner, it also brings easier energy for relationships, even if it’s only on the surface things. It’s not the time to tackle deep issues, but it is a good period for pleasant interactions. You are particularly agreeable and willing to make concessions and compromises. It’s a healthy cycle for attracting and enhancing close relationships. You tend to seek company more often, even for things you typically do alone, in the weeks ahead. Today’s Moon is in your sign, and you’re in the spotlight! Differences and problem areas are in strong focus, however, and it may not be easy to see around them. You may need to get something off your chest. You are inclined to go your own way, but you also seek acknowledgment from others, which is complicated. Aim to focus as much as you can on positive mental stimulation.
LeoVenus enters your work and health sector today, dear Leo, and will visit this area of your solar chart until February 16th. It’s a great time to actively bring more harmony to your daily life or work environment. Working relationships can benefit from this influence; in fact, you may make social or romantic contacts through your work or the pursuit of your daily routines. It can also be a period for showing loved ones how you feel through help and service. While it’s not the most charming or glamorous of Venus transits, it has distinct benefits. Work too easily is viewed as drudgery, and Venus helps restore a feeling of joy in doing your part. However, your social life may occasionally distract you from your work in the weeks ahead. With Mercury and Mars also in this same sector of your solar chart, it can be a uniquely creative time for your work and practical goals.
VirgoVenus moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Virgo, and will support you until February 16th. This transit stimulates your interest in romance, creative pursuits, hobbies, entertainment, and leisure. With Mercury and Mars already in this area of your solar chart, it’s a great time to explore your creative side and let yourself shine. This Venus transit enhances your natural attractiveness, appeal, and charm. There is a playful and deserving quality that you’re expressing, and this tends to turn others’ heads your way, especially love interests. There is also good energy with you for awakening your inner artist. It’s a strong, or at least fun, time for creative dabbling, and seeking out new (or old) avenues for recreation and pleasure. The Moon spends today in your social sector, and you seek some relaxed and easygoing activities. While you may want to push ahead with personal plans, you may vacillate between wanting to do something independently and wanting others’ involvement.
LibraVenus begins its transit of your home and family sector today, dear Libra, contributing to a trend in which you’re more introspective. It’s a powerful period for finding your emotional center and getting in touch with your safety, nurture, and security needs. Venus will visit this area of your solar chart until February 16th, putting you in great shape for making peace at home or with family, although not an especially brave time for pursuing love “out there” in the world. Take this time to really connect with and learn about your inner needs. Good energy is with you for bringing more harmony, artistry, and beauty to your home. Aim to build up your confidence rather than push your boundaries (the next Venus cycle is good for exploring). In the weeks ahead, you might find more joy in your domestic world. You are a little more protective with your heart, tending to stick to the familiar and secure rather than venture out with your heart on your sleeve. Some hesitancy and caution when it comes to love, the pursuit of pleasure, and money are standard with this cycle. Real estate matters could be favorable now.
ScorpioVenus moves into your communications sector for a stay until February 16th, dear Scorpio, and this is a booster transit! It contributes to an ongoing theme that finds you outgoing and interactive. You’re inclined to reach out more often, and as you do, you gain new inspiration. In the weeks ahead, you present your ideas in a relatable, natural way. Your powers of persuasion are enhanced, and you often know exactly what to say at the right moment. Satisfying conversations or expressive messages can enhance or attract love bonds. Others are especially drawn to your ideas and style of communication. You’ll be taking more pleasure in your daily affairs, connecting with friends, exploring mental interests and topics, or learning new things. Today’s Moon encourages your lighter, more spontaneous side. Still, a Moon-Mars opposition can find you getting worked up with a tense environment, so aim to focus and center yourself as much as possible.
SagittariusThe Moon continues to emphasize emotional intimacy and deeper desires and needs, dear Sagittarius, which tend to find a nice release through quiet activities. You crave a deeper approach or a feeling of connection. Also today, Venus leaves your sign and heads into your solar second house for a stay until February 16th, and you’re in a better position to enjoy yourself without self-consciousness. The focus is on building your resources. Love is more about security and comfort, and affections stabilize as you value simpler pleasures. Getting along well with others can be one way to boost your business or income, and relationships already in place can benefit from steadier energy. This transit helps steady your emotions in the weeks ahead. It also stimulates your practical eye. Your sense of what’s valuable is strong, and you may very well score some great deals. It’s a fine transit for business, personal comfort, and enjoyment.
CapricornVenus moves into your sign today, dear Capricorn, where she will stay until February 16th. This cycle can be clarifying for your feelings, and it can bring you quite a bit of positive attention. Others see your attractive and desirable traits, and you more confidently treat yourself. This is a time of living well and putting the right kind of vibes that attract pleasant people and circumstances into your life “out there.” You are projecting warm, approachable energy now. Be good to yourself — this is the time to reward yourself for those things about yourself that make you proud. Because Mars and Mercury are already in your sign and can be aggressive and clinical, respectively, Venus helps soften the rougher edges! You’re more expressive and sure of your needs and affections in the weeks ahead. This cycle puts the focus on pleasure and love. With the Moon in your opposite sign today, you’re inclined to seek balance in your life.
AquariusVenus heads into your privacy and soul sector today, dear Aquarius, and will visit there until February 16th. This transit brings private and deep energy to your love life or more pleasure and happiness from behind-the-scenes healing activities or solitude. Your affections require some review. You may be doing a lot for others or spending more time to yourself. Whether or not you enjoy being under the radar in the love department now, it’s a necessary process as you get your feelings sorted. It’s also possible you enjoy a more pleasing, even if a little wistful, connection to your past or notable private moments with loved ones. There can be some mystery to your love life, feelings, and affections. You might aim to release old or outdated attitudes and clear space so that new experiences and affections can enter your life. You may be more tentative than usual about feelings and even purchases during this cycle. Today, the Moon highlights your daily affairs and desire to be useful.
PiscesVenus heads into a happy place in your solar chart, dear Pisces, and will continue to transit your social sector until February 16th. With clinical Mercury and hot-headed Mars already in this area of your solar chart, Venus helps smooth over any differences you may have had with group associations and friends. It’s a time to give back to others who have assisted or supported you. You’re seeking people and situations that make you feel at ease about expressing who you are. In business, sharing some of your expertise can be rewarding and even profitable. For the best results with this transit in play, be gracious and forthcoming. Look for new, unique, and progressive ways to make money and to enjoy yourself during this period. You may be connecting with fun people. Happiness goals are in focus, and friendships can get a nice boost in the weeks ahead. The Moon in your creative sector today brings more light to your personality.
