Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Aries, as it moves into your sector of joy. Until October 8th, your personal appeal increases, and the expression of your affection and charm comes more naturally. The day’s energies are complicated, however, due to a Venus-Pluto opposition. While intensity can be passionate at times, it can be problematic under the influence of this transit. Extremes are tempting with this all-or-nothing aspect! Consider that your initial reactions to stressors in your environment can reveal possible fears, insecurities, or resentments 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 a chance to relax and enjoy yourself.
TaurusVenus enters your home and family sector today, dear Taurus, where it will visit for longer than usual–until October 8th. Because Venus is your planetary ruler, this cycle is particularly relevant to you, indicating a rather strong focus of interest. Today’s Venus-Pluto opposition is complicated, however. With this influence, you can be concerned about losing a position or value in someone’s eyes. While you might need to deal with pressures from competition, you also need some peace to 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.
GeminiVenus enters your communications sector today, dear Gemini, and will visit this house of your solar chart for many months: until October 8th. It can be a time to talk and think about love and relationships, make happy and beneficial connections, or enjoy learning and studying. Venus forms an opposition to Pluto today, challenging you and bringing buried feelings to a head. Ideally, this discomfort can motivate you to seek new and rewarding channels for making connections. Clashing with someone is possible, and since this transit occurs along your communications axis, you might take differences in opinion very seriously right now. Consider that attempts to over-manage your life can only lead to stress. It may be better to aim to acknowledge fears and concerns and avoid allowing them to drive your behavior.
CancerVenus leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, dear Cancer, for a stay until October 8th. In the months ahead, your love life or your affections stabilize. You receive a boost to your powers of attraction with money, gifts, favors, and valuables. Today, however, features a Venus-Pluto opposition, and tension can stir conflicts. Ideally, it helps uncover something vital about yourself, another person, or a circumstance. If you’ve been too attached to someone or something, for example, it’s time for a test or turning point. Events can have you questioning or examining your attachments. It’s wise to aim for moderation to find a middle ground. The day is complicated, but you also stand to learn a lot about yourself and your projects or plans.
LeoVenus emerges in your solar chart today, dear Leo, and will continue to transit Leo until October 8th. You tend to shine in the months ahead as Venus enhances your natural charm and personal appeal. You can use your charm and personality to get a little more from life than you usually do. Today, however, Venus quickly forms a challenging aspect with Pluto, and disagreements with someone over attachments and allegiances are possible. Instead, intense feelings emerge that give you a stronger understanding of what’s missing in your life. If you’re getting more attention, someone may feel insecure if they fear you’re drifting away. You may feel anxious about a relationship, and worries or fears reach a boiling point. Aim to consider ways to let go of a tendency to over-manage an area of life you fear losing.
VirgoVenus begins its transit of your solar twelfth house today, dear Virgo, and will visit this private, hidden area of your chart until October 8th. This signals a time for processing and digesting recent events, particularly with your pleasures, loves, and affections. Today is complicated, however, with a Venus-Pluto opposition bringing frustrations to a head. You need 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.
LibraVenus begins its transit of your friendship and goals sector today, dear Libra, and will continue to influence this area of your solar chart until October 8th. The months ahead are beautiful for appreciating friends and networks and for their appreciation of you! It feels easier to loosen up, relax, and enjoy yourself. There can be mutual benefits with friends and a lovely sense that you can be yourself in your social life. Today, your feelings for someone or something can overflow as Venus opposes Pluto. The need for easygoing connections is high, but the pull of intense relationships or projects is greater. 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.
ScorpioVenus begins its transit of your reputation and profession sector today, dear Scorpio, and will continue in this area of your solar chart until October 8th. The months ahead feature more warmth, charm, and pleasure in pursuing your ambitions, career, or long-term goals. Today, however, Venus quickly forms an opposition to Pluto, pulling up frustrations related to fears and insecurities. While you’ll be taking more pleasure in your work, connections to friends, or outside responsibilities, concerns about your personal life distract you today. Home or family life may be complicated, or you could feel guilty about spreading your wings. The events of the day can offer some clues as to where you can make some compromises to better your life. You may need to find ways to compartmentalize or cut down in some areas so that you don’t stress yourself out unnecessarily.
SagittariusVenus moves into harmony with your sign today, dear Sagittarius, and will continue in your spirit sector until October 8th. You are more courageous and forthright with your feelings in the months ahead. Your relationships may benefit from a change of pace. Promotional efforts or publishing can thrive. Today, however, Venus forms an opposition to Pluto, creating some tension. Projects you’re overseeing may keep 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. Conflicts with others may start with a difference of opinion but are likely more about the fear that you’ve lost power in someone’s eyes. You need to leave your post from time to time without guilt, so attempt to reach a compromise.
CapricornVenus begins its transit of your intimacy sector today, dear Capricorn, and will move through this area of your solar chart until October 8th. During this cycle, you might enjoy some fun research, investigation, getting to know yourself, or looking for clues and hidden layers. Attracting support comes more naturally, if needed. You might decide to iron out tricky problems related to money or power dynamics in relationships. Today, however, 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 more fully engaging emotionally. Aim to identify areas where you may act 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.
AquariusVenus begins its transit of your solar seventh house today, dear Aquarius, where it will influence until October 8th. It puts you in an improved position to enhance or develop relationships. You’re more inclined to make peace with people, and you’re more hospitable or approachable. It’s also a period of more joy experienced through others. Today is complicated, however. Worries and concerns can move in, and 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. Choose to welcome more rewarding, self-empowering, and positive activities into your life instead.
PiscesVenus heads into your work and health sector today, dear Pisces, putting you in great shape for bringing more harmony and joy to your daily life. This cycle lasts until October 8th, and during it, you may find more pleasure, benefits, or delight in your routines, work, service, and efforts to enhance health. Cooperation and sharing can figure strongly and successfully in your daily life. Today, however, Venus opposing Pluto can pull up some tension, and you might have a tough time understanding some of your deepest emotions. 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 you’ve avoided or overlooked.
