Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s energies incline you to want to sort things out and make sense of things, dear Aries, especially regarding feelings and personal matters. Several signs point to a stronger focus on getting along and companionability. You might come to an understanding with someone or with an issue from the past. There can also be promising developments with family, home, or financial affairs. While conversations are helpful, conclusions or final decisions may not yet be wise. There is likely more to consider later! Mercury has a couple more days of retrograde motion, and there may be more to a story. Happiness is natural, as it comes from within, and it’s also easier than usual to roll with the punches now. You might take some pleasure in simplifying an area of your life, particularly related to your inner world, home, or family life.
TaurusGood news or a pleasant conversation can boost your spirits, dear Taurus. With Mercury in your sign still retrograde for a couple more days, taking extra time to digest events and ideas remains quite important. Mistakes, delays, and miscommunications are likely, but you’re finding it easy to rise above problems and enjoy yourself despite them. It’s a generally good day to learn new things, perhaps about the past. You can enjoy feeling on top of things and getting organized. A Venus-Saturn transit favors teamwork, agreements, and activities that help strengthen a project or friendship. Or, there can be a person or group that encourages you to pursue an idea or interest to your benefit or who supports and reinforces you. Venus is your planetary ruler, and its aspects tend to hold more weight for you.
GeminiYou’re approaching your feelings more objectively today, dear Gemini, and it’s a valuable exercise from time to time. In truth, what you decide upon today may need revision later since Mercury is still retrograde for another couple of days. Still, there are distinct benefits to exploring your emotions from an intellectual perspective. You might discover a way to improve your financial state, for example. Past love can also come to mind or resurface in a significant way. There can be surprising support, or your memories and intuition boost your business or money situation. While ideas can be inspired, it’s better to refrain from beginning a brand new project, as it will likely get off to a slow start, or you may reconsider it later. Even so, this is a good time for feeling positive. Let life inspire you today, but be more mindful in your communications and directions while taking note of new ideas. Fortunately, you have self-discipline on your side. Venus in your solar second house is approaching a harmonious aspect with Saturn, helping you see your means, resources, and relationships in a realistic light. You have a little more faith in your understanding of these matters now.
CancerYou more readily discover creative ways to express your feelings and connect with others today, dear Cancer. There may be compliments or other shows of appreciation coming your way, or you attract an admirer. You’re in touch with the gentler, more receptive side of your nature, and others are noticing! Interestingly, you could be attracting people from your past more than usual. You’re inclined to share ideas, personal thoughts, feelings, and memories as Venus connects harmoniously with retrograde Mercury. You have a stronger sense than usual about which of your ideas has true potential for success in the long term. Today’s Mercury-Venus is good for promoting your interests and connecting with others, but because Mercury remains retrograde for a little while longer (until the 14th), it can be a little tricky in some areas. More specifically, you may want to watch for speaking about matters of the heart without your heart entirely in the equation! As well, there will be more thinking to do about topics that emerge today, so save finalizing plans for later. Venus is currently transiting your sign, and it’s moving into harmony with Saturn–a good influence for strengthening your relationships.
LeoToday’s energies are vital for gaining a better understanding of a past matter, dear Leo, but there is more to the story that’s unfolding, making it wise to delay finalizing plans. Mercury is forming a harmonious aspect with Venus but remains retrograde for another couple of days. Even though you are keeping some things to yourself and unsure about whether or not you should be sharing certain observations, it’s a mostly good time for harmonizing with the people around you and enjoying a relaxed approach to your life. There is a subtle sense that you’re getting over a hump and possibly understanding a career matter better as you’re reminded of something relevant from the past. Conversations tend to steer towards the past, but you’re inclined to see these matters with more warmth and understanding. Your inner world frequently draws you in these days, and with Venus heading into harmony with Saturn, it can be pleasing to spend time alone or with trusted friends or family. You see the beauty in things that last.
VirgoFriendly energy is with you today, dear Virgo. Today’s Mercury-Venus connection can direct you to see opportunities you overlooked in the past, and it can be a fabulous discovery. Your appeal and friendships benefit from this transit, and conversations about the past can be meandering but useful, perhaps shedding some new light on a situation. If you’re looking for clear facts or discussions, though, you won’t be in luck with Mercury still retrograde for another two days. However, if you can avoid premature decisions and instead focus on enjoying the day’s opportunities, you’re in good shape. Easy energy is with you for working alongside others with few demands on your time or resources. You might make mutually beneficial connections, and you do particularly well with a cause and plan with Venus and Saturn harmonizing.
LibraA Mercury-Venus influence encourages friendly cooperation today, dear Libra, and a Venus-Saturn aspect helps stabilize you in pleasant ways. While some interesting information can come in, it may be best to recognize that you will only get the whole picture later. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself! Matters will reveal themselves to you soon, and you don’t have to push anything, which may even be a relief. Dig deep, research, and keep an open mind, saving your conclusions for later. You may be in the position to mediate or counsel someone today. Although Mercury remains retrograde for another couple of days, your communications will likely go over quite well as people respond to your intentions more than your words today. Today’s energies support conservative rather than bold moves. With Venus at the top of your solar chart these days, you’re in a more prominent and charming position on professional or public levels. Today, Venus heads into harmony with Saturn, making performing well more comfortable than usual. You’re simply doing things right, and your efforts don’t go unnoticed!
ScorpioSharing your philosophy with someone can be engaging today, dear Scorpio. You might especially enjoy chatting and exchanging ideas or talking through problems. Today’s Mercury-Venus aspect can bring an old friend back into the picture or strong memories and discussions of one. You’re in a decent position to find easy solutions to problems, and a nice message can arrive or a conversation can take place that puts you at ease. Your reliability is more noticeable today–others appreciate you. Pairing up with someone can be pleasant, and today’s observations can be helpful, but it’s still a good idea to reserve judgment. Mercury is only retrograde for two more days, and a wait-and-see approach makes good sense today. Although we’re often encouraged to express our feelings, it’s sometimes kinder to ourselves and others if we sort out some of the less evolved ones on our own before releasing them.
SagittariusIt’s natural to find creative ways to attend to various needs by combining them or adjusting your expectations of each today, dear Sagittarius. A charming conversation or discovery of an intimate or personal nature can get you thinking. You may not know the full story yet, but you’re optimistic. Mercury is nearing the end of its retrograde cycle with just two days to go, and while there can be some delays or miscommunications, you’re in such a good mood that you’re barely noticing. A Mercury-Venus aspect happening now can bring a message from someone from your past or a clue to look behind you before moving forward. You’re also in a good position to take a second look at a project or job. Your intuition regarding health or work methods is excellent, but you may need to reserve judgment since you still lack important information. Diplomacy can help a vital sale or advance. A Venus-Saturn aspect, also in play, enables you to plan ahead. You’re willing to give up immediate pleasures to support a long win, and this strategy works well for you now. It’s a robust transit for making your life feel more structured, secure, and safe.
CapricornYou’re in great shape for personal appeal and solutions to relating problems that are much more than just cosmetic today, dear Capricorn. You may come to an understanding with a significant person in your life due to a sense of shared values or respect for differing ones. Keeping in mind that there is probably more to the story than what meets the eye now, you can nevertheless enjoy the smooth flow of optimism and cooperation today. With Mercury retrograde for a couple more days, there can be some problems with miscommunications. Even so, you are working things in such a way that you’re coming out ahead. Smoothing things out comes easily. For now, it feels good to make tentative plans and entertain different ideas. Conversations about love, children, creative arts, hobbies, or entertainment can be pleasing and beneficial.
AquariusYou seek peace in your domestic life, with family, and in your work or daily affairs today, dear Aquarius, and you can come to a satisfying solution as you do. Good energy is with you for mending fences, enjoying others, and expressing your feelings. Still, it’s best not to finalize decisions just yet since Mercury remains retrograde for another couple of days. Nevertheless, you can enjoy yourself along the way. It’s nice to relax sufficiently to let your guard down. You see more beauty in family, work, or simply circumstances around you, and life through this “lens” is more entertaining. A Mercury-Venus connection may bring an old friend back around through a message or surprise meeting. Or, memories are powerful, and you might remember something that helps you rewrite a troubling story. Defining something can be most helpful, as clarity is constructive with a Venus-Saturn transit also in play.
PiscesPleasant conversations and cooperation can stand out today, dear Pisces. While there can be misunderstandings, it’s important to pay more attention to gestures than specific words chosen to express ourselves. You’re inclined to analyze or discuss past relationships. Even though you may be waiting for some information or dealing with delays, there’s agreeable energy with you for your social life, romance, comfort, or finances. We are approaching a Mercury station, with Mercury soon to turn direct (on the 14th), and such stations can bring some challenges when it comes to being understood. However, we’re easing into this transition with a Mercury-Venus sextile, and the general intent is positive. Venus is also heading toward a harmonious aspect with Saturn in your sign, and your responsibility, reliability, and maturity are most appealing today.
