Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThis can be an exciting time for releasing problems through conversation, musings, or journaling, dear Aries. Sometimes, putting something in words, whether spoken or written, frames a situation differently, and the resulting new perspective helps. The confidence you derive from your support system can carry you far, and your home or family life can be a significant factor in the decisions you make now. Thinking and communicating can be heavily influenced by your dreams and intuition, and ideas are coming together in magical ways. Your ability to imagine possibilities and express yourself creatively is enhanced. Later today, pre-existing problems in intimate relationships can be working close to the surface, possibly interfering with work and duties. If people have been overstepping their bounds, you can feel frustrated now. It’s a time for seeing the need to make adjustments.
TaurusThere is a soothing way of looking at things that can help soften rough edges today, dear Taurus. You’re seeking different, unusual topics or amusements, as the ordinary is holding little appeal for you. Understanding is intuitive and natural. The more idealistic side of your nature emerges, and you tend to give more of yourself. You might express an idea or opinion that inspires or delights others now. Or, friends or networks can encourage you. Ideas and communications are more compassionate or engaging and imaginative. Later today, however, blocks may lead to worry or unrest as your ruler, Venus, forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto. Where it concerns money and valuables, you can be on the fence, and it’s better to stay there just for now. Aim to learn from your feelings if you’re feeling resentful.
GeminiThere can be experiences that boost your self-esteem and faith in yourself today, dear Gemini. You might come up with ideas that help you improve the flow of your work, and you can be very imaginative when it comes to practical and business solutions. Or, you recognize ways to improve your reputation. Others are drawn to you in subtle ways, and a gentle approach to the world can find you at your best now. Bringing a spirit of creativity and generosity of spirit to your professional life can be rewarding. This is a strong time to get in touch with your intuition about your life path or money-making ideas and ventures. Believing in yourself and your path, even if you haven’t defined it in exact terms, becomes you now. Later today, Venus in your sign forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto, and money matters and questions of ownership can be tricky issues, needing delicate handling. Alternatively, there can be doubts about a person in your life or an uncomfortable decision. Make adjustments to plans now for best results.
CancerYou’re in particularly good shape to make plans or imagine possibilities today, dear Cancer. You could be motivated to put in self-improvement efforts. Your charm is stronger or more noticeable, especially through what or how you communicate. Your ability to express a higher level of empathy can win you an admirer. Thoughts are lofty, and conversations can be inspiring. Sharing your ideas can fuel your motivation to learn more. Feelings, and possibly complicated ones, that emerge today can help you see insecurities more clearly, and thus allow you to learn from them. Later today, ghosts from the past seem to crop up as Venus in your privacy sector forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto. You might get in touch with some of the hidden forces at work in your life that undermine you or your relationships.
LeoToday’s energies are good for combining logic and creativity, dear Leo. Your mind might open to an idea or concept that you previously overlooked. You have a little more faith in your dreams today, which can fuel your motivation for a project or interest. You might enjoy explaining a concept to others. There is strong energy for work or thinking done behind the scenes, away from distractions. Things are coming together in your mind, and you understand recent events more clearly. Seeing the past in a new light can brighten your outlook on the future. A more helpful perspective on a matter can emerge. Someone could be putting their faith in you and taking you into their confidence. Later today, you may wrestle with reminders of disappointments from your past or feelings of guilt. Try to find healthy outlets for releasing your frustration and make plans to deal with any dilemma that might crop up in a step-by-step manner.
VirgoA new layer of understanding and acceptance in a partnership can boost things up today, dear Virgo. You might find it easier to put your worries aside and enjoy yourself more thoroughly. Even so, it’s a good time to do some big-picture thinking, particularly about pet projects or causes. You might grow your knowledge or experience through friends, networks, or associates. Your perspective is changing in a very positive way, and it can feel wonderful to see the world a little differently. It’s a fine time to dream up new ideas or reinvest more spirited energy into your current ones. Later today, there can be worries or frustrations that lead to some feelings of discontent or unrest. Resentments or fears can distract you from your priorities. It may be helpful to remind yourself that you can’t please everyone!
LibraThe finer things in life have a unique appeal to you today, dear Libra, and can be a significant motivating factor for the plans you make. You’re in a particularly good position to dream up imaginative ways to further your goals or career. Your faith in your dreams inspires you to adjust your plans accordingly. Adding creative flair to your services or offerings may figure strongly now. This can be a time when you say something particularly meaningful or inspiring, and it catches on. A little bit of compassion goes a long way today. Your instincts are powerful for what to say and how to say it, especially with the public or work. Your approach to achieving your goals is improved and renewed. Later today, your ruler, Venus, forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto, and there can be a tricky decision or dilemma. You may be craving more freedom on the one hand with Venus in your adventure sector, but emotions are complicated, and part of you prefers to play things safe. Interactions can stimulate intense feelings, and something or someone might remind you of issues you’d prefer to forget. Even so, this gives you the chance to face and deal with sticky feelings.
ScorpioA Mercury-Neptune connection today can encourage a romantic conversation or big dreams and plans related to your love life, dear Scorpio. Instead, the desire or need to share something personal, private, or previously hidden can be in focus. Conversations can be inspiring and uplifting, and your personal musings can lead you to a higher level of understanding. It’s a good day for sharing ideas and personal philosophies, and for acceptance of differing viewpoints. Energies today can help boost sharing and learning. Later today, a Venus-Pluto quincunx forms, and this transit can point to some doubts that are difficult to ignore. Old resentments may emerge. There is a strong need for intimacy and a desire to control things, and these two things don’t go together easily. Avoid overanalyzing, which can take you to frustrating places now. Instead, look for ways to learn from your resentment or anger.
SagittariusYour confidence in yourself or your dreams and plans help get things going today, dear Sagittarius. Intimate relationships tend to fare particularly well today, particularly with the lines of communication open and a willingness to understand or look for the normally hidden layers. It can be a great time to tap into your imagination and let it work its magic, especially related to your family or home life. It’s a good day for coming to an understanding with someone and feeling stronger for it. Conversations with family take on a useful compassionate tone. Be willing to let go of a bad situation, habit, or attitude, as that is the path towards attracting more positive into your life. Later today, aim to reflect and avoid letting insecurities or fears drive behavior. Feelings can be overwhelming or merely challenging to understand with a Venus-Pluto quincunx transit. People may be giving off confusing or mixed signals, but it’s better to accept that things are temporarily out of sync and avoid jumping to conclusions.
CapricornThere can be a boost to a connection or relationship today, dear Capricorn. Easy energy is with you for expressing your more charming and creative side. Conversations and interactions are more spontaneous and imaginative. You’re expressing yourself, your ideas, and your affections more fluidly. Today’s energies encourage you to approach relating freshly, rather than fall back on outdated methods. Someone in your life may motivate you to think more imaginatively. Later today, however, you could face some limitations or blocks with Venus in a minor challenging aspect with Pluto in your sign. Creative energy is abundant when it’s with you today, but there can be some concerns or worries that might undermine your good mood. If you’ve recently been feeling put upon, you might recognize the imbalances more clearly now.
AquariusYou might reach people in different ways or express yourself in ways that people are especially pleased with, dear Aquarius. Today’s energies are ideal for a natural flow of communication, and ideas that come to you are especially unique or creative. You enjoy bringing something new, imaginative, fresh, or unique to business, work, or practical projects. Over-analyzing a situation or focusing too much on facts and figures today seems to get you nowhere. Insight into health, money, or work can figure strongly now. You can have an easier time coming to an understanding or agreement with someone close to you. There is a natural flow happening that makes necessary adjustments natural and strain-free. Later today, energies are a bit tense. There may be some friction due to heightened sensitivity or touchiness. Defensiveness and resistance are possible. If others push your buttons, try to keep a cool head. It makes sense to acknowledge insecurities or fears that emerge now.
PiscesYou express yourself more naturally, freely, and creatively today, dear Pisces. Others seem to hear you and appreciate your ideas or contributions. Mercury in harmonious aspect to Neptune today is especially comfortable energy for you. It’s a good time to communicate your thoughts and affections, make romantic connections, and come to understandings, although a bit of strife may precede agreement. Tolerance, allowance for errors, and the desire to learn and improve are keys to success today. You crave a little more on a mental level, which can take you exciting places. You might come to peace about a matter with someone, or settle a problem. There can be romantic overtures. You might repair or heal problem areas by sharing encouraging thoughts and ideas. Later today, a Venus-Pluto aspect comes into play, and vulnerable spots and insecurities are more evident in your relationships. It may be difficult to confront issues directly with this transit. Mixed signals are likely. Aim to focus on ways to make improvements.
