Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus has just begun its transit of your solar fourth house, dear Aries, where it will stay until August 11th. In the weeks ahead, you can find more joy in your family and home life or enjoy more entertaining and pleasurable energy 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 with love, the pursuit of pleasure, and money are standard with this transit. Real estate matters could be favorable now. You can be excited about a project or idea today, but you might also face opposition to it today and tomorrow. People can be defensive of their views and opinions, and avoiding getting caught in the crossfire may be best. The Moon moves into your sign for over two days, however, and you’re seeking emotional renewal and a fresh start.
TaurusYour ruler, Venus, has just begun its transit of your communications sector, dear Taurus, where it will visit until August 11th. You’re moving into a more sociable, curious, and chatty phase. You’ll be taking more pleasure in your daily affairs, connecting with friends, exploring mental interests and topics, or learning new things. You’re bringing more charm and diplomacy to your communications. Today, you can have a lot on your mind or plate. Interactions can be edgy or tense in spots, or things can seem fine until there’s a difference of opinion. Do your best to maintain a healthy level of detachment when expressing views. However, this can also be a time to discover hidden desires that you can use as fuel for better decisions or energetic projects and pursuits.
GeminiVenus has just begun its transit of your solar second house, dear Gemini, helping steady your emotions in the weeks ahead. This transit, lasting until August 11th, tends to encourage your practical eye and sense of balance. Dependability, comfort, and stability are all aphrodisiacs during this cycle! It’s a time for wanting to settle in and enjoy yourself. The need for more predictability in your life strengthens. Today, there’s a tendency to take things very personally. However, this can also be a highly revealing time since jealousies or frustrations stimulated by current events can get you into touch with feelings or desires you didn’t realize you had.
CancerVenus has just moved into your sign, dear Cancer, and you’re beginning a pleasant, attention-getting cycle that lasts until August 11th. This cycle brings your desire for pleasure to the fore. You may want to pamper yourself or spend extra time on your needs and wishes. While it may not be the most disciplined time, it’s a period for carrying yourself with more confidence and warmth. You receive more positive attention during this cycle, and people find you especially attractive or pleasant. Energies today and tomorrow are sometimes complicated and distracting but ultimately quite revealing. Ideally, through current events, you’ll begin to see precisely what drives you or what you may need to adjust so that you can move forward lighter, freer, or more determined. Be kind to yourself and avoid pushing something too hard, but don’t let go of your passions or motivations in the process.
LeoVenus has just begun its transit of your solar twelfth house, dear Leo, active until August 11th. In the weeks ahead, you’ll do well for yourself to take more time to yourself or for rest, relaxation, solitude, and peace. It’s a time for exploring your feelings by easing up on analyzing them! It can be a beautiful period for enjoying some downtime. This can be a quieter time for your love life, or you’re more inclined to keep your feelings or relationships private. With money and love matters, which can seem a little more complicated than usual, you may be going over the past and taking more time to come to conclusions or decisions. Today, if something is pushing your buttons, pay close attention since it may reveal a hidden or suppressed desire. Unless you’re channeling mental energy into something creative and positive, avoid letting your imagination run away from you. Watch also for an overactive curiosity.
VirgoVenus has just moved into harmony with your sign, dear Virgo, and until August 11th, you’re in particularly good shape with friends or networks. You’ve been awakening to your need to connect with others, and now you have Venus helping smooth your path in this direction. This transit enhances your popularity and appeal, and happiness goals are a pleasant focus. You can be strengthening or forming friendships and connections. Look for new, unique, and progressive ways to make money during this period. Today, tensions can be working close to the surface. Ideally, they help you get in touch with hidden desires, but some things may be better off left alone. You can have strong ideas and experience powerful motivation regarding a particular plan, but there can be some blocks or opposition to contend with first. The goal now should be purging.
LibraVenus is now transiting your solar tenth house, dear Libra, and during this cycle, you are more aware of how you come across to others. You might naturally work on polishing your look, image, style, and act. It’s, in fact, a very good time to do these things. Advancing your goals can involve being especially friendly and personable during this transit that runs until August 11th. People more readily recognize your artistry, taste, or creativity. You more thoroughly enjoy your responsibilities or role, and your reputation may get a nice boost. Today, buried hurts can jump out of hiding, and if you are not careful, they can find expression in one way or another in your conversations. Stalemates can occur, so avoid pushing matters. It may be better to observe, formulate a strategy, and then act later. Consider that your words tend to have more impact at this time. If you use the tense energies of today and tomorrow constructively, it can be an excellent time for pouring yourself into a project that gets you somewhere.
ScorpioVenus has just moved into a harmonious position to your sign, dear Scorpio. Until August 11th, relationships flow more naturally, and timing is generally quite good on a social level. You can enjoy a more spontaneous, direct, and adventurous approach to life and love. Learning, new experiences, and mind expansion can be in focus and beneficial during this cycle. Today, you can feel as if you’re on a mission to find out the truth of a matter. You’re mentally sharp, which is excellent for intellectual and business-related endeavors, but your heart may not be ready for where your mind wants to go. It can be an ideal time to pursue anything that involves healing the mind or paying particular attention to the mind-body connection.
SagittariusVenus has just moved into your intimacy and shared resources sector for a stay until August 11th, dear Sagittarius. In the weeks ahead, you’ll find that you enjoy private moments, thoughts, and observations more than usual and that your desire to connect with others (or special projects) on a deeper level increases. It can be a good time for gaining support from others if it’s desired or needed. This area of your solar chart is intimate and complex, and Venus here can pull up important themes of passion, attachment, and intensity in your love life or relationship with yourself. You could be more involved with others’ resources and talents. If you need to ask for a loan or smooth over differences about financial or intimate matters, this can be the best time of the year to do so. Mental energy runs high today, but consider that there’s no benefit in pushing your ideas on someone, especially regarding values and sharing issues. If something feels very unfair, you need to talk about it, but your choice of words and tone will be critical now, so keep it light since it’s the kind of day when people can take things entirely the wrong way. You might uncover a secret or pursue a line of research doggedly today, but avoid overdoing things for your own sake.
CapricornVenus is now in your partnership sector, dear Capricorn, where it will transit until August 11th. This is one of the more hospitable, relationship-oriented periods of the year, when you tend to attract warm, pleasant, or helpful people into your life, and when you are especially attentive to others’ needs and wants. It’s not the time to tackle deep issues, but it’s a solid period for pleasant interactions. Making concessions and compromises can be beneficial during this period. Others can push your buttons early today, and it may be all too easy to take a different viewpoint as a personal affront. It can be a good idea to channel extra energy into productive activities. However, in some cases, disagreement or conflict may be just what a relationship needs right now, revealing important buried issues that could do with some addressing.
AquariusVenus has just moved into your work and health sector, where it will be a guest until August 11th, dear Aquarius. This cycle helps bring harmony to your daily affairs, routines, or work. It can also be a time of increased social opportunities through work, chores, daily routines, or health pursuits. Instead, this transit can be about more fully enjoying taking care of your everyday life. You may be seeking out wellness treatments during this cycle, and they can do much to improve your mood. Find ways to make what you do more pleasant and appealing. Today, you could feel that others are in your way, blocking your path, or overbearing or controlling. It may be best to avoid taking on too much or getting worked up about minor flaws and problems. Conversations can heat up quickly, but they can also pull up buried difficulties and issues that may need your attention. What emerges now can be revealing, perhaps showing you hidden desires.
PiscesVenus has just begun its transit of your sector of happiness and pleasure, dear Pisces, and will be inspiring you to discover your joy until August 11th. Your natural charm shines through, and matters related to love, entertainment, leisure, creativity, and children are in favor. It’s one of the better Venus transits and is a fun, appealing cycle overall. Games, hobbies, or romance can bring much pleasure and satisfaction. You’re a little more liberal with your affections, as well. Right now, you might want to avoid situations where people are trying to one-up you or attempting to get the upper hand since there can be a lot of this today and tomorrow. Friendships can be a touchy area.
