Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere can be a need to ground yourself or deal with responsibilities today, dear Aries, with today’s Venus-Saturn square. A social or emotional issue might weigh you down or prevent you from expressing yourself naturally. You may feel someone isn’t valuing you or seeing your true worth, or there’s a reality check with a friend or finances. It’s best to get to a state of realism now, but just for the moment, it may be looking a lot more negative than it is. Aim to tame any fears you may have and try to slow down. Caution is just fine right now, however. You might now recognize where you’ve had self-limiting attitudes. Later today, however, transits boost your imagination. It’s a good time for more forgiveness, resting, and releasing stress.
TaurusMatters of personal freedom may not be mixing well with your obligations today, dear Taurus, with Venus in a square aspect to Saturn. A duty could emerge that ties you down or holds you back, or an obstacle appears just when you’re feeling invincible. These are likely only temporary setbacks, so aim to stay positive. It may be that it’s time to recognize the limitations of specific projects or efforts and understand what needs to go so that you can move forward lighter and happier. You may very well need a slowdown. As you focus on your priorities, today is good for solving some problems or fixing errors. However, as the day advances, a Venus-Neptune transit tunes you into life’s subtle or otherworldly elements. Your understanding of others, yourself, and your purpose skyrockets as a result. The spirit of friendship dominates. It can be satisfying to put others’ needs before yours right now. The Moon moving from your career to social sector today is another sign that you’re shifting from a serious to a more easygoing focus.
GeminiRelationships, finances, and career-related matters are complicated today, dear Gemini, and it may be difficult to state what you need directly. Today’s transits are probably better for reflection than decisive action. Criticism or a fear of criticism can lead to defensiveness. People may not be forthcoming or lending you their support at the moment. There might also be some uncertainty about someone’s feelings towards you. Look for the lesson if things are slowing down, reaching a speedbump, or not going as planned. Eventually, you’ll worry less about problems and easily sniff out opportunities. It’s best not to put more on your plate than is absolutely necessary today. Later today, a Venus-Neptune transit can boost your professional or public appeal, or you could come to a compassionate understanding of matters that have frustrated you. In some areas of life, it seems time to let go of anger so you can move forward. Career matters can be fortunate, working in mysterious but magical ways for you.
CancerYou might feel some tension if there’s a loose end to handle today, dear Cancer. The desire to enjoy friendships and independence is strong, but something or someone may seem to hold you back or stand in your way temporarily. Try not to take these ups and downs to heart. When people are self-protective, displays of emotions can be less than generous. Still, blocks and limits slow you down long enough to make better plans, and it’s probably for the best. It’s possible you could get closer to someone today by backing off and allowing them space. Later today, it’s easier to fight self-doubt and trust in the process. A harmonious aspect between Venus and Neptune helps smooth things out, nudging forgiveness and grace into the open. You may want to take a chance on love and friendship with a kind gesture or expression. Imagination heightens, and you might find inspiration through friends and non-routine experiences. Also later today, the Moon moves into your spirit sector for a couple of days, presenting an excellent time for sharing ideas, learning something new, and possibly working towards a cherished dream or goal. You’re in good shape to do something you enjoy.
LeoAdjustments may be in order today, dear Leo, and they might allow you to get things right before pushing forward. Expecting negative responses can become a self-fulfilling prophecy, but even with positive expectations, there can be some negative feedback to manage today. If so, aim to deal with it as maturely as possible and learn from delays or slowdowns. With a Venus-Saturn square today, fear of disapproval or lack of support can be themes. If you feel someone is jealous of the attention you’re getting, try not to take it to heart since you can see through it. Accepting that there are obstacles to understanding one another today can help. Focusing on work and business affairs can also be useful, although you may need to clear up problems in the process. Later today, a Venus-Neptune aspect encourages you to see the beauty in the ordinary, flipping your mood pleasantly. It can be a time of self-discovery or the subtle and pleasant development of a close relationship. You can now see matters in a more compassionate light, and there can be a visionary quality to your goals as you cook up and imagine new ways of making things happen. Gaining some release from pressure feels wonderful, and opportunities to find the silver lining can emerge.
VirgoYou might need to deal with a block or a reality check regarding current plans or initiatives, dear Virgo, with today’s Venus-Saturn square. It can be a time when driving something forward sets you back, and it’s better to wait or slow down. Or, a project or even a relationship comes to a checkpoint. If you’re feeling unfulfilled or disillusioned, don’t allow it to weaken your resolve. Take the lesson from what you experience now, and use it to rework your plans to a better fit for you, realistically speaking. Duties and responsibilities keep you rooted for now, but there are always workarounds if you look for them. Later today, a Venus-Neptune transit helps you release tension and smooth things out. Compassion and understanding are more abundant, and a healthy dose can help boost a connection. It’s also an excellent time to explore a new interest or topic.
LibraA setback or stubbornness can bring a pause to your plans today, dear Libra, but with some minor adjustments, you’ll be back on track in no time. There can be some worries, concerns, or emotional distance to manage. It’s possible that a delay or disapproval happens now, although it’s likely only a temporary slowdown. Unhappiness in relationships or with creative output can stand out now, and differences in tastes, styles, or attitudes with people close to you may feel particularly disruptive. Whatever emerges now can reveal vulnerable areas in our relationships and insecurities within ourselves. While the energy to fight self-defeating thoughts can be temporarily low, it’s only a sign to take a break. Later today, a Venus-Neptune transit favors letting mysteries unravel at their own pace instead of attempting to rush things. The gentler side of your nature emerges with this influence, and others especially enjoy you. This transit can help inspire a love of your routine or work, and it can encourage you to bring more imagination to your daily affairs.
ScorpioWhile you’ve been detaching yourself from certain problems, and it’s felt good to do so, dear Scorpio, today’s energies are more sensitive. A reality check or minor letdown is possible. Family members or responsibilities to the home can feel burdensome or restricting, particularly in comparison to your relationships and social life. Something could burst your bubble about a relationship, but in all likelihood, your instincts may signal that you should slow down and adjust. Later today, however, a Venus-Neptune transit comes into play, and a gentle approach brings rewards. It’s also an excellent time to create, write, make art or music, or appreciate and enjoy original art, theater, writing, and music. You might recognize and appreciate things about someone that you may have previously overlooked. As well, with the Moon’s move into your sector of joy for a couple of days, you’re feeling more interactive and coming out of your shell. The desire to mingle, reach out, share, and express your affections is growing.
SagittariusYou may need to reassess some elements of projects and possibly relationships today, dear Sagittarius, and this kind of review can be helpful if it doesn’t last so long that you’re dwelling. There is some tendency to come across insensitively, which may need some attention. Or, there’s an obstacle to clear with a Venus-Saturn transit highlighting disapproval, blockages, self-defeating attitudes, or time constraints. Whatever it is, there can be the need to redo or retry rather than move plans forward. Do pay particular attention to how you express yourself, whether you’re not asking for enough or if you’re coming across as critical. Pace yourself and try not to let delays or restrictions weigh you down, but if they slow you down, this might ultimately help you get back on track. Later today, it’s easier to go with the flow. For one, the Moon moves into your solar fourth house, and you’re looking to settle in. The focus turns to matters of security and familiarity, and you’re likely to feel the need to center yourself. For another, a Venus-Neptune influence encourages you to let things flow naturally rather than push in certain areas of your life. It’s a good time to promote peace and balance. Offering your help or services can be more satisfying than usual. There is easy, gentle, and subtle energy with you for pursuing your goals.
CapricornThere can be complications with others today, dear Capricorn, or a natural withdrawal that allows you to gain some perspective, slow down, or pace yourself. While you may have been feeling especially creative and passionate these days, there can be moments of frustration or blockage now. Obstacles may be financially related on the surface or possibly come in the form of inner reservations or fears of not getting something right. Keep in mind that blocks are temporary but contain valuable lessons. It’s a good time to pause to reflect rather than advance. It’s brief and may help you redirect your energies more efficiently. Later today, it’s easier to pay attention to the positives with a Venus-Neptune transit accenting your ability to soothe and heal through your communications. Your perceptions heighten, allowing you to understand others on a whole new level. You might inspire others with your words or enjoy some personal interests and projects that intrigue and motivate you. Or, some release from stress is most welcome.
AquariusTry to slow yourself down and get centered today, dear Aquarius. However, you may need to throw yourself into editing work before pushing something forward. You’ll need to let go of the negative to embrace the positive, but first, facing the flaws seems necessary with current transits. In the first part of the day, you can be particularly sensitive to how others receive you or any situation that leaves you feeling vulnerable to rejection. Love is complicated, especially because you require some self-nurturing. Bad timing or reservations can interfere with the natural flow of things temporarily. Try to look within rather than to others for happiness. Limits may seem to fall away or rebound off you as the day advances and your perspective changes. A Venus-Neptune transit encourages compassion and taking more time to unwind. Helping someone out can be particularly rewarding–you could be offering an ear or taking steps toward healing or mending connections. Bringing more imagination, vision, creativity, warmth, generosity, and compassion to the equation can be magical now. Circumstances may be such that spiritual support is appreciated and needed.
PiscesWhile it’s a generally good time for communicating and learning, dear Pisces, a Venus-Saturn transit today can produce some reserve, hesitation, or a need to reassess a situation. It’s a good time to examine elements that might be keeping you from truly enjoying your life. Even if there are delays, criticism, or hesitance, slowing down a little can be helpful now. It’s not ideal astrological weather for going all out or over the top–keeping things moderate makes sense just for the time being. People may not be very forthcoming or generous today while working through their issues. Drawing on patience is a good idea, and it gets easier later today. A Venus-Neptune transit encourages understanding. It’s a time when your sentimental and gentle nature emerges, and others appreciate it as you own and express it. Your communications and gestures are soothing, healing, and attractive. You can feel quite happy about yourself and your relationships or current projects. As well, with the Moon’s move into your sign later today, you’re less likely to blend into the background, and you begin to crave more interactivity.
