Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your solar fourth house, and you’re more focused than usual on your personal life, family, or home, dear Aries. While you’re craving a stronger sense of security now, a Venus-Uranus transit brings a somewhat unpredictable or disorienting theme today, mainly because it upsets the routine. There can be some unexpected events in your relationships, social life, or with money and business matters, which can mess a little with timing. Sudden attractions to people, material things, or experiences may emerge today, and these can be fun or disruptive, depending on your perspective! If you’ve ignored your needs to make interesting changes in your life, you’ll discover them now. It’s better not to commit to anything or anyone with your feelings in a state of rapid flux. Later today, productivity flows, and it’s easier to concentrate.
TaurusThe Moon enters your communications sector today, and there can be a helpful focus on connecting, communicating, and learning, dear Taurus. Today’s Venus-Uranus transit is a bit destabilizing. Uranus in your sign highlights your independent side, but Venus is currently transiting a cozy area of your chart, and you have a stronger desire for comfortable and familiar situations. Today’s influences can highlight this clash between wanting to be comfortable and feeling stifled by closeness or bored with the usual. It can also be a time of interruptions and changes of plans that can irritate you but help establish your priorities. Later today, you’re in good shape for putting concerted energy and quality time into a creative project or even a love relationship.
GeminiToday’s Venus-Uranus square points to potential issues related to communications and transportation that are unexpected, dear Gemini, and it’s not always easy to center yourself. There can be uncomfortable moments or changes of schedule that throw you a bit off course. With Venus in your solar third house, you enjoy conversing and connecting these days, more than usual, but you can be unsure how close you want to get, or you could feel disconnected and misunderstood today. Recognize the need for a little more freedom and space so that you find ways to attain these things without too much ado. Later today is excellent for pouring your energy into a project or an endeavor that’s close to your heart. However, it’s always a good idea to wind yourself down rather than wind up on the day before a New Moon, as is the case now.
CancerToday’s Venus-Uranus transit can throw you a bit off-center by a money or ownership matter, dear Cancer, or you can feel pulled out of your comfort zone by unexpected events. It’s temporary and can lead to good things, but it can also feel a bit disruptive. Instead, this influence can pull up an inner conflict between wanting to play it safe and experimenting with something new. Interruptions or schedule changes can figure strongly now, but they probably shouldn’t be taken to heart. If the urge to buy something comes up suddenly, try to wait it out because your appetite for new things can fade almost as quickly as it comes on and may only be about discontent. You might need a change in your routine for some emotional refreshment, which can be a wake-up call. As the day advances, it’s easier to tap into whatever inspires you and pour your energy into it. Also today, the Moon moves into your sign, and your heart tends to rule your head. Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to unwind with a New Moon set to occur in your sign tomorrow.
LeoToday’s Venus-Uranus transit can stir things up a little, dear Leo. There may be conflicts with others, or you need to deal with unreliable or unavailable people, and schedules are off. Alternatively, there can be an internal conflict, and you see-saw between wanting to be close to someone and craving your independence. This transit requires flexibility! It’s possible that others are absorbed in their issues. If you don’t worry about what that might mean or take it too seriously, you may very well enjoy the space and freedom this affords you to do your own thing. Later today is good for devoting yourself to a pet project or a business idea or endeavor. You seem to have the right combination of ambition and willingness to put forth the effort at your disposal. Still, unwinding in some manner can benefit you with the Moon’s move into the sign behind yours and a New Moon happening tomorrow.
VirgoYou tend to crave a change of pace or some other form of emotional refreshment today, dear Virgo. Restlessness is likely, particularly with Venus and Uranus in hard aspect shaking things up. There can be some missed connections or schedule changes. Venus is in your private, subconscious sector, encouraging an inward focus, while Uranus is prodding you to learn new things, share your ideas, and seek different pleasures. This conflict can play out on an internal level, or external events can bring it on. Either way, it’s about stoking your curiosity. While you may be thrown off-center by this transit, things that surface unpredictably today may very well need a release and can also help stimulate necessary changes. Later today is strong for dedication to something important to you. There can be a surge of motivation to take care of business, take steps to get healthy (or healthier), or resume an old project. Keeping in mind to take things easy with a New Moon occurring tomorrow, it’s a fine time to stay busy.
LibraA Venus-Uranus square shakes things up today, enforcing minor changes for which you may not have prepared, dear Libra. Fortunately, you might arrive at new methods or detours that work in your favor as a result. Still, following a routine, instructions, or schedules can prove challenging. Social interactions can be confusing, as surprising feelings can emerge and throw you for a loop. If plans change, consider that freed-up time could lead to positive things. While desires today may seem to come from out of the blue, they may lead to new perspectives and ideas that serve you well in the future. It just may not be wise to act upon them at the moment as they can be fleeting, turning out to be mere whims. Later today is good for grabbing a piece of time to yourself and working out a problem or devoting yourself to a loved one or domestic project. With a New Moon tomorrow potentially redirecting you, it’s better not to start anything brand new.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your spirited ninth house today, dear Scorpio, exciting your senses and stimulating the need for a change of pace. A Venus-Uranus square today can undoubtedly shake things up, although not always cooperating well with you. There can be mixed feelings or tension with others, depending on whether this aspect plays out internally or externally. At the heart of this, you may need a change of pace, and if so, it’s best to identify this need and work with it. You may not agree with someone on the direction you’re heading, but perhaps you need some space to think things through. Aim to keep your personal life in its place so that it doesn’t come to the attention of others. You might try to use the tension of today’s Venus-Uranus square positively to break free from a bad habit or break out of a rut. Later today, you might gain a new perspective on people in your life and personal projects. Consider that it’s the day before the New Moon, and it’s best to wind down.
SagittariusVenus forms a challenging aspect with unpredictable, rebellious Uranus today, dear Sagittarius, making it tough to keep everything in a straight line. While it’s a bit destabilizing, it can be a good transit for revealing new methods. At the heart of this influence is the need to approach people and pleasures in different ways or switch up your routine to entertain new feelings. However, it can surface in unexpected ways, particularly if you’re out of touch with this need. You might instead face changes in plans and schedules that temporarily throw you off course. The good news is that there’s a learning experience or a genuine benefit to discover in your new direction. Through upset schedules or interruptions, you can find a new approach that might pull you out of a rut or a mindless habit. Later today, it’s easier to focus, and you might deal with practical affairs with extra confidence. Even so, aim to wind down rather than rev yourself up since a New Moon will occur tomorrow.
CapricornToday’s hard aspect between Venus and unpredictable Uranus could stir up conflicting feelings as you wrestle with a desire to harmonize and a simultaneous need for independence, dear Capricorn. You may crave more depth in a relationship or project on the one hand, but on the other, you’re not thrilled about the possibility of having to follow others’ schedules or agendas. Feeling a bit more detached from a situation may motivate you to make a break or a change. In fact, you may need to entertain some unusual ideas to stretch your mind out of a rut. However, watch for whims since desires can come on suddenly, but they’re very likely to be fleeting, and it may be better to wait things out until you’re confident about what you want. Later today is powerful for dedicating yourself to a particular project or endeavor that excites you. You’re also in a good position to persuade and influence others.
AquariusWith today’s Venus-Uranus square, you may need to manage some instability, dear Aquarius. You do enjoy improvement and progress, but you take some time to adjust to these things if changes come upon you suddenly or by others. As such, it’s best to recognize the need to shake up the routine and make your own changes. If there are changes of heart or schedules related to your home life today, ideally, they lead to new experiences and ideas that boost you. Since Venus is currently visiting your partnership sector, it may be that you can’t rely or lean on someone now, but some detachment in relationships can be healthy in the long run. At the least, it allows you a bit of space to do your own thing, and it helps you appreciate what you have. There are times when it’s hard to process your feelings, and some emotional space is appropriate. Later today, it’s easy to pick up inspiration and enthusiasm. Making plans and strategies for improving your life and relationships can be engaging now. A positive show of support may be in the offing.
PiscesToday’s Venus-Uranus square can upset schedules temporarily, dear Pisces. This transit tends to stir up a bit of tension or produce surprises. People may be hard to pin down, or there can be so many distractions and interruptions that it’s hard to hear yourself think. Through this, it’s your attitude that counts most. Look for the interesting detours that result from unexpected events today for best results–they can lead to fantastic new ideas. Aim to be as flexible as you can. Later today, there is great energy for feeling passionate about a cause, project, or relationship. Nevertheless, it’s the day before a New Moon, and it’s a good idea to wind down as a cycle ends and a new one is about to begin.
