Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesRestlessness is a strong possibility today, dear Aries, and you may feel the victim of poor planning. Do what you can to avoid overextending yourself, and avoid making promises until you know you can fulfill them. You can succumb to excesses more easily than usual today since it may take you some time to come in touch with what it is that you are craving. It can be challenging to settle on one thing or the other, but indecision may end up being a good thing since judgment can be off right now. The Moon moves into your privacy sector later today, where it will stay for over two days, and extra rest and time to yourself can be especially helpful and healing. It’s hard to compete with a memory, so aim to release yourself from something from the past that prevents you from enjoying the moment.
TaurusWatch for over-reaching and over-committing, as you may feel able to do more than you actually can today, dear Taurus. It’s possible for wires to cross. With Venus in a minor challenging aspect with Jupiter, there can be mild discomfort or restlessness that can lead you to overcompensate. Poor choices and planning may result, but taking some extra time for self-understanding can help you get over this minor bump in the road. With Venus in your home and family sector, you may prefer to stick with familiar people and things, but Jupiter in your social sector encourages you to socialize and wants you to take a chance. Otherwise, there is good, if moody, energy for creative activities.
GeminiIf you don’t take extra time to consciously center yourself today, you can easily feel scattered and stressed out, dear Gemini, with too much on your plate. You can be especially enthusiastic about a particular creative idea, but it’s not the best time to present it. Generally, it’s best to be careful with the words you choose to express yourself, particularly in formal or professional settings. Today’s Venus-Jupiter aspect could incline you to look outside of yourself for an assessment of your worth, but it’s best to avoid the tendency. Alternatively, this aspect can seem to encourage you to go overboard or to excess if you feel uncomfortable or if you’re trying to avoid responsibility. Be moderate and disciplined for best results.
CancerYou tend to take more pleasure than usual in activities that make you feel secure, dear Cancer, with Venus now in your solar second house. At the same time, Jupiter encourages a desire to experience and learn new things. While these desires seem too divergent to combine, you can find ways to compromise and satisfy both needs if you genuinely seek them. It may be best to avoid taking on additional commitments or pushing yourself too hard today. There is a tendency to say yes, fully thinking that you’re capable of handling it all, but you could be overestimating the time and energy you have to fulfill promises. Avoid exaggeration, and try not to add more if your plate is already filling up. Be particularly aware of a tendency to overspend today with Venus and Jupiter in conflict. Fortunately, the Moon moves into harmony with your sign later today, encouraging you to take things in stride.
LeoThis can be a good idea day, dear Leo. However, you could be feeling hesitant about putting plans into action, and perhaps rightfully so. Aim to enjoy the process, but wait until your confidence returns before making solid plans. Before committing, make sure you’re considering and seeing all the details. There is a tendency to see the bigger picture, which can be helpful, but you might lose the finer points in the process. Very different but equally strong needs seem to compete with one another today. As much as you’re valuing your independence right now, you are also very drawn to deeper connections and experiences. Someone may be paying extra attention to you, and while this feels good, it may cause waves in an established relationship. Indecision can wear on you on a social or personal level, but do your best not to let this drain or discourage you.
VirgoYou could be seeing what you want to see in a person in your life, dear Virgo. While it can feel like a temporary fix to your mood, it won’t serve you well in the long run. With Venus and Jupiter connecting awkwardly today, part of you is seeking some extra downtime, but another part wants company, and it can be challenging to blend both. You may need to give up a pleasure to attend to someone else’s needs. Avoid putting too much of yourself into counting on others, and aim to watch spending or over-indulgence. Your best bet is to allow restless energy to blow over or tap into frustration to use it for creative inspiration.
LibraYou gravitate to people who are idealistic, spirited, and independent at this time, dear Libra, likely because you long to feel free and uninhibited. Today, aim to focus on the moment so that nobody can rightfully complain that you are distracted. Try to divide your life into partitions so that each area of your life gets your full attention at least some of the time. The tendency may be to hastily make a decision just to get the process over with, but it is probably better to wait things out. Be cautious about overdoing things. You can feel especially powerful and energetic, but there can be a tendency to overestimate your capabilities. As much as you’d like to be productive, it can be challenging to focus. Aim for a balance.
ScorpioPromises made today can be hard to keep later, as people, in general, are not seeing their capabilities clearly, dear Scorpio. Whether you are on the receiving end or if you are tempted to make a promise that on second thought might not be easy to fulfill, it’s better to avoid putting your faith into it and going all in. Avoid comparing your progress or your accomplishments with an idealized version of where you wish you were. Instead, focus on something small and attainable. Consider that it’s all too easy to pour too much of your energy into efforts that are low-priority with a Venus-Jupiter aspect temporarily skewing our perceptions. It’s a form of procrastination that can trick you into thinking you’re busy and productive while neglecting the essential things. On the other hand, try not to overextend yourself, attempting to cover all bases. Venus at the top of your chart suggests a greater interest and pleasure in your career and pursuing goals. Even so, the Moon aligns with Jupiter today, and your heart is in play and self-expression.
SagittariusYou can be enthusiastic about a person, an idea, or a feeling, dear Sagittarius, but do watch for mood swings, as there can be a tendency to inflate a little too big, to the point of popping. With Jupiter strong today, aim to dream big but keep things real. Judgment with financial and love matters can be a little off. It’s better not to let anyone you care about feel caged in right now. Take a step back, and allow yourself and others to breathe until you feel more in sync. In truth, you can do much with your enthusiasm these days, but it’s all too easy to end up taking on more than you can comfortably manage. A big part of you is itching to move, while another part is equally into getting comfortable and sticking with familiar people and places. While these two things seem mutually exclusive, you might be able to compromise so that you can enjoy yourself more fully. There is also a possibility of putting your faith into the wrong things now, perhaps in an effort to find more meaning in your activities. The trick is to understand your desires before seeking to fulfill them.
CapricornYou are resistant to anyone attempting to pressure, manipulate, or push their authority on you right now, dear Capricorn. You might have a hard time deciding whether to take direct action or approach a situation more subtly or indirectly. Taking the high road is favored. It can be challenging to make a partner or friend happy now, as there can be mixed signals that are difficult to read. Enthusiasm can run high but then fall suddenly, much like a sugar high, and it can be a sign that you’re not truly confident about something just yet. You’ll get a fuller picture if you take another’s point of view into account. Having too many balls in the air can prevent you from pursuing a more satisfying line of thought or project. Watch also for see-sawing between a light-hearted and serious approach to your interactions. Ease off if things are not clicking now.
AquariusWatch for extravagance or neglect today with Jupiter prominent and in your sector of resources, money, and things, dear Aquarius. You might wrestle with a decision, or a difference in values interferes in a partnership. With a Venus-Jupiter aspect active today, it’s best to aim to recognize the difference between being carefree and careless. There is some tendency to misjudge or overdo things, and you’re inclined to comfort yourself with extravagances rather than address the real reason for your restlessness. It may be wise to avoid excessive people-pleasing now, which can be a tendency if you are sensitive to something being a little off in a relationship.
PiscesWhile you might aim to see eye to eye with a special someone, as much as you try, dear Pisces, a lack of synchronicity can interfere today. Patience is necessary, but don’t get too worked up about it, opting to take a step back if the timing is off or you feel out of sync. There can be minor misjudgments, and you may end up taking on more tasks than you can comfortably handle. Alternatively, a Venus-Jupiter transit could lead to a state of limbo. Watch for the tendency to think that the bigger you go, the better. Extravagances are unlikely to satisfy, so it’s best to keep things simple. While you could experience some self-doubt about your ability to handle a work matter or understand the tasks you need to perform, confidence in your ideas returns as the day progresses.
