Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYour planetary ruler, Mars, joins with Venus today, dear Aries, and this alignment occurs in your romance and creativity sector. You are especially aware of and awake to the world around you and on fire in the personal appeal department! It’s a perfect time to pursue your desires, but using some restraint and strategy will take you to even better places. You can be incredibly motivated to get going on a creative project, hobby, or relationship. This is undoubtedly an excellent time to bring a more lively spirit to a connection. Connections, or re-connections, can be made now and can be quite rewarding, and in some cases, profitable. Creatively, you are at a personal peak. You can bring great pleasure to someone’s life, or there can be some drama in your social relationships.
TaurusYou can feel incredibly passionate about your home life, family, and roots now, dear Taurus, as Venus and Mars align in your solar fourth house today. No matter what you do today, you’re bound to make an impact, even if it’s only in your personal circle. You might crave some emotional interaction with others that runs deeper than usual. Your heart rules your head right now, and as such, results can be unexpected and perhaps a little messy, but running with your feelings and emotional excitement may be just what you need at the moment. Something special and expressive or unique on the home front can be an urge and a powerful motivator. Inspiring and creative ways to improve your home or to enjoy family can emerge.
GeminiA super day for creative visions or enthusiasm for your social life is in store for you today, dear Gemini. You are on top of your game when expressing yourself creatively, and others may be admiring your perspective on matters. It’s possible you receive a warm message from an admirer, or initiate one! You have tremendous inner resolve and a gently motivating competitiveness that can lead you to discoveries and bold new beginnings. You need a good outlet for your energy, and right now, it’s likely a mental one with Venus and Mars aligning in your communications sector. This conjunction can be exhilarating or a bit of an emotional rollercoaster ride. You may want to take on a challenging project, an interesting detour, or even an exciting conversation. Even so, you can become so worked up about an idea or opinion that you end up in an over-the-top debate. For the most part, though, this energy is refreshing as it stirs your creativity and passion for a mental interest or project. It also ups your appeal in your communications.
CancerYou are especially desirous and possibly impulsive with spending or indulging right now, dear Cancer. Material goods, comfort or luxury items, and pleasurable or sensual activities appeal strongly with Venus and Mars coming into alignment in your solar second house today. You might also be thinking up ways to make more money or to make creative changes in business. You could be defending yourself or your value or protecting your possessions. You are learning about your desires in the process, but you can be a little headstrong for the moment. In love, you can be feeling possessive. This transit stirs up the motivation to act on your desires, and you might want to put an enterprising idea into action.
LeoYou can have a sudden and strong appetite for pleasure today, dear Leo, with Venus and Mars joining in your sign. This transit can challenge you to take the lead or take charge. However, if you’re not finding an outlet for all these feelings and desires, you could feel frustrated. While you are undoubtedly desirous, you’re also especially desirable! Others are interested, and the challenge is to be patient. The focus is on you, perhaps heavily, and you want to participate, not stand by. With self-discipline, you can do much. Aim to learn from impulses that come on suddenly. Look for inspiration if it doesn’t find you first, and enjoy the attention today. You’re vibrant and intriguing, and you’re standing out pleasantly.
VirgoDesires are powerful today, dear Virgo. Venus and Mars come into alignment in a very private area of your solar chart, animating your private life and your inner world of feelings and desires. Creative imagination is strong–hopefully, it’s working for you. Projecting your fantasies onto others can make too much of a situation, whether it’s positive or negative. Love is dramatic, at the very least in your mind, and you could be excited at the prospect of following your heart to unusual places. Private, unrequited, or past love can be in focus. Creative arts can be rewarding, especially something that allows you to express your feelings and desires indirectly. While much is going on inside, the Moon moves into your sign today, and you’re coming out of your shell.
LibraCreative thinking is in focus today, dear Libra, and you can crave a fresh start or increased contact with others. You may want to take the lead as Venus, your planetary ruler, comes together with assertive Mars in your social sector. The emphasis is on pleasure, finding like minds, healthy competition, attraction, and making new plans. Your desires tend to rule, or you dare to go out of your way or step out of your comfort zone. Connecting with others can be exciting, and you can find yourself on the same page as a partner. Love connections might happen through networking, group associations, or friends. Initiative and enterprise are strong in whatever venture you’re considering.
ScorpioOthers might recognize you for your dynamism and creativity today, dear Scorpio, and you’re bringing solid people skills to the table. Feedback can be exciting. You come across well, creatively, and on top of your game. You tend to stand out and shine as Venus and Mars align at the top of your solar chart. This transit can be impulsive, but if you can control and channel this energy, you’ll be in a great position. Your relationships or personal magnetism are in the spotlight, and creativity along business or promotional lines are in focus. This transit is competitive, fun, and playful. You’re in an excellent position to pour energy, passion, and love into your current work or pet project now.
SagittariusToday can be solid for adventure and play with Venus and Mars coming together in your spirit sector, dear Sagittarius. You’re in the position to make a good impression, and creatively speaking, you are powerful. You tend to shoot for something exciting and share your enthusiasm with others today. Your powers of attraction are strong, and you can achieve or pursue your goals with much more ease than usual. Physical or mental activities can go in your favor. You’re seeking exciting connections, or you have a real passion for a new idea, subject, course of study, or travel destination. Any of these things can awaken a strong desire inside you.
CapricornYour appeal is somewhat mysterious and deep today, dear Capricorn, as Venus and Mars align in your intimacy sector today. Even so, outlets for expression may not be apparent or direct. Things can get heated fast today, and you might have a sudden urge to act upon hidden or previously buried desires. This transit stirs feelings, particularly if you’re feeling too dependent on someone. Otherwise, you can be pleasantly desirous and in the mood to indulge someone you love. This can be an important day for emotions and desires or an exciting time for personal discovery.
AquariusYour lust for life is in full force today, dear Aquarius. You can be feeling particularly playful, determined, and energetic. While there’s beautiful energy for love surrounding you, keep in mind that you are bound to bring out strong feelings and reactions in others whether you want to or not. With Venus and Mars aligning in your partnership sector, it can be an intense time for passion, romance, and pleasure. You may want to push the limits when it comes to creativity and feeling. You seem to magnetize people to you, and others might encourage or motivate you to experience new things. You may be looking to others to fill your desires, which can be a little problematic if they’re not on the same page. However, channeled well, it can be a good day for bringing a little more excitement or passion to a relationship.
PiscesThe desire for pleasure or creative release is strong today, dear Pisces. If you can channel your passion into productive pursuits, it’s an intense day for moving a work or health project forward. It’s also suitable for bringing dynamism, excitement, or creativity to a project. You might stand out for your services or the work you do. Today’s Venus-Mars transit can also highlight great pleasure in a particular duty or a task that you turn into something unique and pleasant. It’s possible that sparks fly with someone on the job, but you’re also in the position to change up your routine, chores, or work in creative ways.
