Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday is generally good for sorting things out and verbalizing, dear Aries. Even so, your desires are complicated. There’s some tendency to dwell on problem areas rather than release them constructively. Watch for digging in your heels if faced with the possibility that things are not going your way. The better solution for your peace of mind may be to move on and pursue something else. Also today, Venus moves into your sign, where she will stay until the 28th, putting the focus on pleasure and affection. Your natural charm emerges for everyone to see! During this cycle, you tend to attract things and people into your life instead of pursuing them directly and actively, and you are incredibly well-equipped to do so! You’re ready to pamper yourself, and others take a special interest in you. Venus rules partnership and money in your solar chart, and these things tend to work in your favor during this cycle. Decisions about love and money come more organically.
TaurusYour ruling planet, Venus, heads into your solar twelfth house today, dear Taurus, and will transit this hidden area of your solar chart until the 28th. You might find more time to slip into the background to enjoy private moments and times for recuperation. New opportunities can emerge that turn your attention behind the scenes. It’s possible you reassess your affections or a relationship during this period. There can be spiritual longing and attachment to the past or complicated ties. Otherwise, it’s an excellent time to enjoy some solitude and privacy and become very cozy with your inner world. Ideally, you get to a beautiful place of greater understanding of your past and your deeper feelings about recent events. Today, accumulated frustrations can emerge if you’ve kept too much to yourself. It can be easy to trigger frustrations, but this also allows you to see what needs purging. You’re particularly sensitive to superficiality in others right now.
GeminiVenus moves into your friendship, dreams, and ideals sector, dear Gemini, and you enjoy more warmth, grace, or pleasure and enjoyment in your social life in the weeks ahead. During this cycle, your appeal as a friend or colleague soars, and you’re generally more approachable and companionable. It’s a time for spreading your wings, reaching out, and making contact. Your tastes are for the new, different, and progressive. It can be particularly satisfying to hook into a dream or pursue your happiness goals. Today, a Mars-Pluto aspect suggests that you should probably go gently and plan strategies rather than push matters. Try to be as flexible as possible and adapt to changes around you. Watch for overthinking or saying a little too much.
CancerVenus heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, and you’re bringing more grace and charm to your work or responsibilities in the weeks ahead. Improved business relationships or enhanced relationships with a parent, boss, or superior can figure strongly now. People more readily recognize your artistry, taste, or creativity. It’s an excellent time to enjoy setting goals for yourself more thoroughly. Your reputation can see a nice boost. Today, try to avoid fixating on specific issues that haven’t fully developed. If negative thinking or fears seem to be taking over, do your best to pull yourself out of a vicious circle. Be on the lookout for a suspicious or controlling approach or people adopting this manner with you. This is a time for recognizing the need to resolve problem areas so that you can clear a path for confidently going forward.
LeoVenus moves into your solar ninth house today, dear Leo, and will stay until the 28th. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. This transit brings desired situations and people to you. You are braver in your taste and willingness to experiment and diversify. Sharing ideas is fun, rewarding, and even relationship-enhancing. You could also enjoy a new adventure, topic, or something non-routine. This transit is excellent for good humor and personal appeal. Today, you can be quite sensitive to signs of power imbalance in your relationships, which could lead to frustration or resentful feelings. Or, you can be a little tense, particularly if you feel that you’re in a rut or a tough place. Try to rise above this and let the ideas flow. Helping you with this is a Moon-Mercury alignment.
VirgoVenus moves into your solar eighth for a stay until the 28th, dear Virgo. This transit brings easygoing energy to you for the more intricate or complicated side of relationships in the weeks ahead. It can stir up a need to share some of your deeper feelings with someone special. You might also see the deeper side of your own nature in a better light. Attracting resources from outside sources comes more readily, and it can be cleansing and rewarding to sort out problems with others. The chance to dig deep and get to the heart of a relationship, subject, or private matter can arise. It’s also a good time for discovering what or who you value. Research and analysis can be satisfying and helpful, and shared resources and finances can get a nice boost during this cycle. Today, there can be an intensity to your nature or someone close to you. While this can lead to exciting times, you may be clashing in your focus just for now. Nobody feels like bending at the moment! There may be irritating issues surrounding mobility or communications now. However, a conversation or news can help you clarify your goals.
LibraVenus heads into your partnership sector today, dear Libra, moving love relationships and pleasurable matters to the foreground in your life. This transit lasts until the 28th, bringing comfortable energy to relationships. It may not be the ideal time to tackle deep issues, but it’s a good period for pleasant interactions. Venus brings more joy and pleasure to your connections, and sometimes, a helpful person arrives in your world. You’re diplomatic and accommodating, and you might often find yourself in the position of peacemaker or mediator. Your need for companionship might increase in the weeks ahead. Today, watch for power games played in close relationships. Insecurities or fears can be behind the tension. However, it’s a good time for connecting with information that inspires you.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your solar eighth house today, dear Scorpio, and your need to observe and reflect is stronger than usual. Temporarily, there can be stubbornness and a tendency to lock horns today, however. Take a break from tense and demanding situations if you can. Also today, Venus begins its transit of your work and health sector. Until the 28th, you can find your attention to your work, routines, and health goals more joyful or rewarding. The weeks ahead are fabulous for bringing harmony to your daily life, including your working environment. Social or romantic opportunities can emerge through your job or pursuit of your duties, health, and wellness. There is more enjoyment in these matters — you’re taking pleasure in producing, serving, and taking care of your daily life. You feel more accomplished through cooperation and sharing.
SagittariusVenus begins its transit of your sector of joy and self-expression today, dear Sagittarius, boosting your sense of fun. Venus will transit this area of your solar chart until the 28th, awakening your desire to explore fun interests and hobbies. Matters of love and pleasure are refreshing and direct during this cycle, and money can be similarly straightforward. You might find more time for creative and pleasurable pursuits. There’s a pleasing emphasis on the more creative, romantic, and playful elements of your life in the weeks ahead. Today, there can be tension around money or family matters, especially if frustrations have been building. However, as you become more aware of what you want, it’s easier to express yourself. You might enjoy a conversation with someone on the same mental wavelength as you.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your work and health sector today, dear Capricorn, and you’ll find that taking care of business satisfies you most. It’s a time for organizing your life in some way and for enjoying piecing things together. Power plays can be in force but not very distinct today, or you could have mixed feelings towards someone you need to sort out. You may not feel valued for all you do, leading to some resentment or a revision of your plans. While tensions are entirely possible, you’re in a great position to make plans and get organized. Also today, Venus heads into your sector of heart and home, where it will transit until the 28th, inspiring your domestic side. Home improvement and harmony are in focus and attainable goals now. This period is not the most connected or expressive for love and pleasure, but it’s a fine time for making peace at home or with family. It’s also a good period for building up your confidence.
AquariusWhile the Moon’s move into your creativity sector is a playful influence, dear Aquarius, you may not see a direct route to satisfying your needs or asserting yourself temporarily. If people don’t feel they’re in control, they may be acting out. It’s best to avoid power games now. Even so, developing a mental interest or a connection through conversation can figure strongly today. Also, Venus begins its transit of your communications sector, boosting your enjoyment of learning and sharing until the 28th. The need for verbal rapport in your relationships is in the spotlight, and you’re placing more value than usual on exchanging ideas. There could be some good publicity or news, invitations, and increased ease in your social life in the weeks ahead. You are inclined to communicate more cheerfully and perhaps tactfully during this cycle. You also gravitate to things that improve or engage your mind.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your home and family sector for a couple of days, dear Pisces, and it’s a time to reconnect with yourself and your inner needs. Mars, currently transiting your sign, forms a minor tense aspect with Pluto today, and it can be too easy to dwell on something said or done. Ideally, tensions turn into motivators to get going on a matter. You have the tools to fix problems, and the trick is to work on a fix rather than spend too much time on the frustration part. Venus begins its transit of your resources sector, and until the 28th, you might find more joy in building upon your current resources and padding your life in ways that help you feel more stable and comfortable. You’ll find this a good cycle for making money, although not always perfect for money management. However, you are exceptionally skilled at making the best of your resources. During this cycle, you crave some stability and predictability in your relationships and emotional life. Gifts or pay increases are possible.
