Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Venus-Mars aspect can stimulate a nice connection with someone, dear Aries, or even with a project that excites you. Since Mars is retrograde, this may very well be someone (or something) from your past. Your creative powers are potent now, and you can feel pleasantly motivated. Energy is lively and creative around you. A conversation can quickly turn to the past today. In passing, new information about old matters can come to light, and it can take a few days to truly settle in on a deeper level.
TaurusToday’s transits can boost your practical affairs, dear Taurus, as Venus and Mars buddy up in your sectors of resources and career. You might find exceptionally creative ways to use your resources, including money and talents. Finding lost items or going over something from the past can bring a win. Ideas for your sense of security and comfort can be excellent. Putting the finishing touches or adding individual nuances to a creative project can be rewarding. Socially, it’s better to keep things as light as possible, even if the day’s pace can get a little hectic at times. While you’re giving a lot of thought to your career and the path it’s taking, today is about looking back and analyzing.
GeminiThere can be friendly competition that motivates you to do your best or to reach higher, dear Gemini. A Venus-Mars aspect boosts your energy, confidence, positivity, and personal magnetism. Good energy is with you for romance, increased confidence, and enjoying an adventure or learning experience. However, it’s not a day for much clarity about your path. It’s a powerful idea day–you’re exposed to new ideas or recycling old ones in fabulous new ways, which can be interesting. There can be a learning breakthrough or a sudden understanding of a problem that previously stumped you.
CancerGaining the interest or support of other people comes more naturally than usual today, dear Cancer, perhaps due to your open spirit and confidence. With a Venus-Mars connection today, your interactions can be pleasingly spicy, and intimacy can get a boost. It’s a powerful time for getting in touch with your more profound needs and desires and understanding yourself better. Although the rewards are unlikely to be immediate, you’re quite happy to work toward a long-term goal now. You’re open about discussing or analyzing very personal matters, although you can be a little detached about it all right now. A conversation with a person from your past can be sparked up. Relationships are a big theme, especially past relating patterns. Even if things get nowhere or seem to go backwards, it’s a necessary process for illuminating where you stand and what you will take forward into the future.
LeoToday’s Venus-Mars transit is terrific for connecting you to people or projects that make you feel good, reinforced, or motivated, dear Leo. You might come to a new understanding with a partner or special someone. It’s a good time to back up and redo something that once went wrong. There can be a satisfying feeling of progress even if you’re still very much involved with handling the little things. Paying more attention to the details of maintaining health can turn into a project. It’s a great week for examining past relating patterns in a critical light so that you can learn from the mistakes of the past and go forward with new ideas for approaching relationships. Negotiations can figure strongly, and it’s a time to show how fair you can be.
VirgoVenus forms a trine to Mars today, dear Virgo, which can be invigorating. Warm energy can help boost your relationships and your sense of timing. You have a real knack for smoothing over differences right now. Romantic connections and creative matters thrive, particularly as you pay attention to resolving past problems. As well, conversations can be constructive and helpful. There’s a lot to learn, and research can be successful. While Mercury’s retrograde in your romantic sector can point to some reserve or backtracking in this department, today’s warm expressions of affection, particularly through small gestures and actions, are well-received. You can resolve issues through brainstorming and analysis, by looking back or reviewing past endeavors, or by reviving old projects.
LibraVenus and Mars harmonize today, dear Libra, and can lead to a connection or a pleasant exchange. People around you are cooperating for the most part, and this sets you at ease. You may be motivated to pursue a personal interest, hobby, or creative activity. Confidence is strong but not overbearing, and affections are pleasantly stimulating. It’s also a favorable day for domestic work and cooperation. Conversations today tend to revolve around love, the past, and emotions. Connecting to your inner muse will be especially rewarding now. If you have the chance, create something fun or fabulous for variety and emotional refreshment.
ScorpioToday brings Venus and Mars together in a harmonious trine, dear Scorpio, and this can boost matters of the heart and personal pleasures. There could be news of money coming in or support today, especially if this involves family, a spouse, or property. Expressing your affection or your creativity comes more easily than usual under this influence. It’s a past-oriented day nevertheless. A kind gesture or communication from a friend or acquaintance can touch you now. A problem may well unravel now, and previously challenging issues seem to be easier to manage with your new and improved mindset. Relationship matters discussed now tend to be light but could stay with you beyond today for more analysis. This is largely due to a sense that relationship problems, even if they seem alright on the surface, are not completely resolved.
SagittariusA Venus-Mars aspect today boosts your social or romantic life, dear Sagittarius, and a Mercury-Venus parallel supports illuminating discussions. Relations with siblings, a partner, classmates, and acquaintances improve as you see them in a new light. Good cheer and optimism can help strengthen bonds. This can be a time for pleasant, productive, and possibly spicy conversations! Work and business matters can provide some nourishment and refreshment. Discussions and musings can revolve around complicated or past relationships–sorting things out is a drive. There can also be a need or desire for more movement and activity in your life, particularly on a mental plane.
CapricornIt’s likely to be a good money day, dear Capricorn, and this may be about making a good buy, sale, or commission. You are approaching others with more confidence than usual today as Venus and Mars form a happy trine–and making opportunities for yourself as you do. Sensual, earthy activities are favored. You can feel gently stimulated or competitive and pour a little more energy into your work or health routines as a result. Sharing personal wisdom and ideas with others can be reinforcing. While the ideas you generate now are notable and ultimately useful, it’s a time for review, not for making important decisions about your assets with Mercury and Mars still retrograde for a while longer.
AquariusYou’re giving off warm vibes, and personal opportunities abound, dear Aquarius. Romance or friendship may strengthen as Venus, currently in your sign and boosting your powers of attraction, forms a harmonious aspect with Mars. You are more confident and focused, but also very receptive and approachable. Active, positive social interactions can be in focus, although you may not find a satisfying route to achieve your goals temporarily. The path to fulfillment seems complicated just for now. Still, you are coming across well, attracting others’ interest and respect. You can be filled with memories these days and especially today, or others and circumstances seem to be recalling the past. Even so, conversations seem to revolve around you or frequently turn to you today.
PiscesVenus and Mars form a pleasing trine today, dear Pisces, helping to ease your interactions and stimulating your creativity or ambition. You might experience revived feelings for an old relationship or find out about a secret attraction. It can be a time of a real sense of satisfaction, particularly regarding a relationship or a private matter. There is a greater appreciation for the quiet, easygoing moments in your relationships, and kind gestures or words of appreciation can go a long way toward improving your connections today. There can be a real tendency to go over or analyze past matters to understand them better as more information surfaces, giving you food for thought.
