Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesIn the first half of the day, you can be feeling motivated and optimistic, particularly about your inner life or domestic world, dear Aries. Drawing up plans for the future can be in the spotlight and quite successful. As the day advances, worries can enter the picture as Venus and Pluto form an opposition. You can be concerned about losing a position or value in someone’s eyes. Try to channel your energy into working on vulnerable areas for best results now. While you might need to deal with pressures from competition, you also need some peace so that you can bring the best version of yourself to your practical affairs and responsibilities. A compromise seems your best bet. It can be challenging to shake particular frustrations or worries, but you might be able to channel your energy into working on vulnerable areas instead.
TaurusYou may be building alliances or making satisfying commitments early today, dear Taurus. Anything that relieves stress will be appropriate. Transits support your ideas, thoughts, and creative process. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto opposition can bring buried feelings to a head. This discomfort, though, can motivate you to seek out new and rewarding channels for making connections. It may be better to aim to acknowledge fears and concerns and avoid allowing them to drive your behavior. Clashing with someone is possible, and since this transit occurs along your communications axis, you might take differences in opinion very seriously right now. Keep in mind that attempts to over-manage your life can only lead to stress.
GeminiYou can find creative ways to manage your practical affairs today, dear Gemini. An open-handed, generous approach works wonders in the first half of the day. There is a tendency to focus on the most supportive, positive, and hopeful scenarios in the first half of the day. However, as the day advances, tension can stir conflicts. Ideally, it helps uncover something vital about yourself, another person, or a circumstance. If you’ve been especially attached to someone or something, it’s time for a test or turning point. Events can have you questioning or examining your attachments now. The day is complicated, but you also stand to learn a lot about yourself and your projects or plans. However hard it may be to see in the heat of the moment, there is a middle ground, and it’s wise to aim for moderation so that you can get there.
CancerThe first half of the day is strong for expressing yourself and perhaps for enjoying a lucky break, dear Cancer. Generosity of spirit is a theme. Others tend to treat you well, give you the benefit of the doubt, and enjoy your perspective and humor. As the day advances, Venus, in your sign, opposes Pluto. A clash with someone over attachments and allegiances is possible, or intense feelings can emerge that give you a more vital understanding of what’s missing in your life. You’ve been getting more attention, and someone may feel a little insecure if they fear you’re drifting away. It’s possible instead that you’re feeling anxious about a relationship, and if so, worries or fears reach a boiling over point. Aim to consider ways to let go of a tendency to over-manage an area of life you fear losing.
LeoIn the first half of the day, you can be feeling encouraged and motivated to work on improvements in your personal life, dear Leo. A sense of inner well-being can come from making plans for the future that inspire growth and hope. You can be feeling motivated and optimistic. Your supportive role could be recognized and appreciated. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto aspect can bring frustrations to a head. Your need is real for relaxation and retreat so that you can heal, but this aspect can aggravate your fears of falling behind or of letting someone else take the reins. Consider reaching a compromise for improved health, both emotional and physical. As much as possible, avoid the tendency to obsess over, micromanage, or oversee every detail if these things prevent you from taking the break you need.
VirgoSmoothing over differences, reaching out to others, extending goodwill, or lending an ear are all favored in the first half of the day, dear Virgo. It’s easier than usual to rise above problems and make the best of circumstances. As the day advances, your feelings for someone or something can overflow. The need for easygoing connections is high, but the pull of intense relationships or projects is great. You could feel reeled into something intense or complicated, but you may need to draw on self-control and find ways to detach enough to unwind. Experiences prompt you to address excesses in your social life, particularly if they’re draining material or emotional resources.
LibraWhile the morning continues positive energy and an optimistic theme, dear Libra, as the day advances, Venus opposite Pluto pulls up frustrations related to fears and insecurities. You can be taking more pleasure in your work, connections to friends, or outside responsibilities these days, but concerns about your personal life distract you today. Home or family life may be complicated, or you could be feeling guilty about spreading your wings, and the events of the day can offer some clues as to where you can begin to make some compromises. You may need to find ways to compartmentalize or cut down in some areas so that you don’t stress yourself out unnecessarily.
ScorpioIn the first half of the day, it can be easier than usual to channel your energies into enjoyable activities, dear Scorpio. Others tend to support you, and new ventures could be getting off the ground, or existing ones can be expanding now. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto aspect creates some tension. Projects that you’re overseeing may be keeping you from getting the break you need. Watch for obsessive thinking if it’s preventing you from growing, exploring new ideas and experiences, or reaching out. You need to leave your post from time to time without guilt, and finding a compromise becomes necessary. Feelings can be complicated today, but it’s best to avoid power plays. Conflicts with others may start with a difference of opinion but are likely more about the fear of losing power in someone’s eyes.
SagittariusIn the first half of the day, you might enjoy sharing something special that brightens someone’s day, dear Sagittarius. Problem-solving can be most successful, and positive thinking seems to dominate. You can feel particularly motivated to achieve your goals. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto opposition can trigger some worries or concerns. You’d be wise to watch for holding on too tightly to people, situations, and things, as this can prevent you from letting go and more fully engaging emotionally. Aim to identify areas where you may be acting compulsively or possessively, and pledge to release some control. This transit can pull up deep feelings, and there can be a personal reveal or epiphany.
CapricornIn the first half of the day, you’re inclined to make plans and think in bigger terms, dear Capricorn. Overview thinking can be helpful now, and your sense of future trends is strong. Worries and concerns can move in as the day advances, and a Venus-Pluto opposition occurs. The tendency is to insist on “all or nothing” when you would be better off meeting someone halfway. It may be best to avoid extremes, as stubbornness or unwillingness to budge on a matter can prevent you from enjoying, learning, and improving. Aim to let go of unhealthy competitiveness and self-imposed pressures to perform since these things can weigh you down. Choose to welcome more rewarding, self-empowering, and positive activities into your life instead.
AquariusCooperation comes naturally in the first half of the day, dear Aquarius. There is a sense of moving on with money, business, or practical affairs. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto opposition can pull up some tension, and you might have a tough time understanding some of your deepest emotions. Staying out of touch with them can lead to problems in your interactions, however, particularly with people you deal with daily. There are great benefits and joy in your work and daily routines, so don’t let insecurities prevent you from giving what you love your all. If something touches a nerve now, it can alert you to a persistent matter that you’ve avoided or overlooked.
PiscesThere’s a smoother flow of emotions and natural expression in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. Others are putting their faith in you–and you in them. Your ability to put things into perspective opens up doors. The day’s energies grow complicated as the day advances due to a Venus-Pluto opposition. While intensity can be passionate at times, it can be problematic today under the influence of this transit. Extremes are tempting with this all-or-nothing aspect. Your initial reactions to stressors in your environment today can be very revealing. They may be clues to what fears, insecurities, or resentments are lurking just under the surface. Your need for personal enjoyment that’s guilt-free runs high, and taking time for play can also be healing. As such, don’t let complicated friendships take so much of your time that you barely get the chance to relax and enjoy yourself.
