Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA chance to get over a hump or past an obstacle related to your long-term goals can emerge now, dear Aries. It’s a fine day for professional influence or feeling strong and empowered through your work or current mission. With today’s influences, you could feel that you need something (or someone) with great intensity, but there can be love-hate feelings involved. You might have to face some truths that stimulate your fears, particularly in your career, relationships, or financial affairs. However, this is also an excellent time for digging deep and embracing your ambitions. You can be exceptionally focused, and this may also help attract the right resources to you. You might see your goals more clearly, but it’s also important to recognize your concerns about your position, performance, future, and life direction.
TaurusYour magnetic powers are strong today and tomorrow, dear Taurus, and you may suddenly have the courage to make a move you’ve wanted to make for some time. There can be considerable excitement about an idea or subject, and others are extremely interested in what you have to say, teach, or share. Connecting with a partner or your relationship needs can be intense and exciting, or sharing a personal belief or mindset can bond you with someone. You can fill with a desire to make profound changes that last. It can be a time to reinvent yourself through new ideas, knowledge, and life experience. There can be tension and fear experienced with these things but also a growing determination to live a more engaging life. Working with differences, making compromises, and trying to find a balance are all important strategies today, as passions run high and there is a distinct air of competitiveness around you, and within you!
GeminiYou might enjoy connecting with more intense feelings and connect with some of your deeper desires, dear Gemini. These can lead you to exciting discoveries, although they might instead lead to demanding behavior. It’s important to remember to respect not only others’ boundaries but also your own. Enjoy yourself, but don’t go over the top to do so. Whether with relationship issues or finances, it’s better to face issues rather than hide from them, as this is a day for bravely seeking out answers and for digging for truths. This can be a time for recognizing your need for more from your relationships or projects and activities. If your needs are unmet, aim to use your intensity for something productive. Creatively speaking, you might be able to draw upon raw and deep feelings today to create something magical.
CancerIt can be a strong time for making a deeper connection with someone special in your life, dear Cancer. Even so, you might be taken aback by the power of emotions stimulated in spots today. If someone is pulling up strong feelings inside you, consider this a chance to better understand yourself. In the face of someone’s strong emotions, you may take on the role of the more rational one. Avoid harping on differences in a relationship and instead aim to learn from them, as this is the best route towards increased intimacy. A significant person in your life can be reacting strongly as Venus and Pluto converge in your partnership sector. These are emotionally-charged days, and you may feel that you’re on the verge of a breakthrough or turning point, particularly related to relationships and self-expression. This can be a week for bravely seeking out the truth of a matter, perhaps because you’re tired of wondering and questioning what and who to believe. Or, this can be a brilliant time for making changes in your relationships or breaking worn-out relating patterns.
LeoInteractions can be more serious than usual, dear Leo, and on the positive side, you can gain a better understanding of people around you– their motivations and desires, or agendas. The potential for breaking new ground in a work or health matter or discovering a real passion–is powerful now as Venus and Pluto head into alignment. You can be excited to get around an obstacle. The energy and love you put into whatever you’re doing shows, and it benefits you. It’s a strong time to come in touch with your deeper ambitions and desires related to work, health, and home life. You might experience a moment of truth and possibly extra motivation to kick a bad habit. Feelings are strong, and you can be emotionally quite sensitive today. A small disagreement is a possibility as a result, but try not to let this drain you.
VirgoUps and downs can be pronounced today, dear Virgo, but once you find your focus, the day holds great potential for insight and enjoyment. You’re exceptionally close to your desires, wants, and needs, which can be disconcerting at first, but enlightening. If you aim to manage your reactions, the day can be strong for creative or romantic endeavors that stand to benefit from commitment, depth, and focus. You can tap into or draw upon your deeper feelings and apply them to whatever you are doing now, with great success. Facing a truth or acknowledging desires or ambitions empowers you now, and it can be a positive turning point. Create something from the heart for the best results now. It’s also an excellent time for attracting the right resources to you.
LibraFeelings magnify today and tomorrow, dear Libra, with a Full Moon and Venus-Pluto alignment on their way. Feelings of love can certainly intensify, but the same can be true of anger or frustration. If your relationships are satisfying, you can feel on top of the world, but if they’re missing the mark, you can feel the lack more deeply than usual. Revealing interactions with family members or those very close to you can occur today. While there is a slight possibility of power plays involved, if you can sidestep these, you can learn a lot about people you care about and your needs. Reminiscing can lead to interesting and revealing discussions. It can also be a time for going the extra mile for something you truly want and believe in, and that may very well be an extra sense of security.
ScorpioThe Moon spends much of the day in your spirit sector, dear Scorpio, and it can be a day of inspiration. By day’s end, however, you’re inclined to set goals and focus on your priorities. It can be a day of much passion and intensity. It’s a powerful time to get your message across, so be sure you’re fully behind what you’re communicating. You can enjoy making important changes or pushing forward a personal plan or project that’s close to your heart. A moment of truth in a love relationship or regarding a special pursuit can occur. New insights into your relationship needs or a changing attitude towards love can emerge. People are drawn to you magnetically now, although emotions can be up and down. Conversations, interests, projects, and matters to do with the mind can bring you together with someone, or you’re enjoying these things more thoroughly.
SagittariusEmotions can be up and down today, dear Sagittarius, and you may find yourself teetering between happy feelings and frustration. New insights into money matters or business affairs can emerge, but so can deep feelings about what you have and don’t have. Ideally, you’re getting over a hump related to money, time, ownership, or respect. You’re more willing to seek and face the truth, helping you get to a place where you’re ready to make vital and meaningful changes. There can be an opportunity to make full use or display of a resource or talent. You might discover ways to make more of what you have, and it’s a turning-point moment. Look for where you may be overly attached and aim to let go even a little to get yourself in a healthier place. You might resolve to do what you can to improve your financial situation or the attitude you have towards your earnings and ability to take care of yourself.
CapricornWith a Venus-Pluto alignment about to occur in your sign, dear Capricorn, you may be moving a personal plan forward or gaining self-understanding. It can be a time for attracting what or who you want. Even so, there is some tendency to put too much weight or energy into a particular line of thought or pursuit. Passions run high, but obsessiveness can ruin a good thing now. You may very well get away with just a little more than usual, but it’s best not to push things too far. Frustrations with current conditions can lead to profoundly meaningful changes. You can turn a difficult situation right around if you put your mind to it or get to the bottom of a matter. There can be a competitive, possessive, and emotional tone to the day, and an inherent need to change yourself or your attitude towards life is with you. Changes you make today and tomorrow can be defining.
AquariusToday and tomorrow are strong for epiphanies and discoveries, dear Aquarius. There can be a significant attraction, you might enjoy a private epiphany or experience that’s fulfilling, or there can be a meaningful review of your feelings. Those things that leave you feeling insecure or guilt-ridden need to go, but first, you need to uncover their source, and doing so now is entirely possible. There may be recognition or reward for past actions, a pleasant surprise from the past, or good feelings and happiness experienced in your inner or private world today. Desires are strong and can overpower you at times today, making it especially important to channel them constructively. There can be sudden, revealing moments when feelings seem to emerge out of nowhere.
PiscesToday and tomorrow are strong for a significant connection with someone, dear Pisces, or for connecting with a deep desire to work towards a dream or cause. A Venus-Pluto aspect influences the day, and it favors digging deep and discovering your needs and desires. Love feelings can dominate, and they can be about a person, idea, or project. Relationships with friends can unbury possessiveness or ownership issues, but you’re also in the position to purge, release, and move forward. It’s an auspicious time to make amends, make connections, or start anew. You’re getting an honest glimpse into problem areas plus a window into your deepest needs, which is a potent combination.
