Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus is in your sign, so you’re attracting attention, dear Aries, but it may be unwanted or the wrong kind at the moment with Venus in hard aspect to Pluto. The desire for more freedom and spontaneity is big these days, but your ambitions or wish to be in control of and on top of things with your work can interfere, leading to tensions and perhaps a boiling-over point. If there’s tension present in your interactions today, consider that it’s really about power and that real empowerment doesn’t come from manipulating others or having power over others but rather control over your own impulses and your own life. Try not to allow worries about competition or uncertainties in your work, your future, or with your reputation to affect your personal life and enjoyment. It’s better to grin and bear it today than to push boundaries, at least for now. If you’re not feeling as confident as you usually feel, take the time to center yourself and then get back in the game. Suspicion is quite possible today, but consider whether it’s coming from a place of fear. You don’t want to be told what to do right now, so be careful that you don’t take on that role with someone.
TaurusWatch for hidden agendas and roundabout moves today, dear Taurus, with a Venus-Pluto square. Your desires are complicated now, and it’s best to work through them and sort them out rather than allow them to control your behavior. It’s possible that something you’d prefer to keep private or unspoken comes to light. Or, your history can be so real in your mind that it interferes with the present. Stirring the pot may lead to good conversations, but it’s hard to know how things will go today. If you take your time, and with some self-awareness, you can get to the heart of a matter, and you might open your eyes to something that helps you grow. Your belief that you want life to be simple can lead to the stifling of unpleasant or uncomfortable feelings. What you’ve buried won’t go away until you face it, and it’s best to seek the root of the problem. Look for an opportunity to experience a real sense of joy through intimacy with someone special — or honesty with yourself.
GeminiA Venus-Pluto aspect influencing today can lead to holding onto an issue that’s dragging you down only because you’re afraid to let it go, dear Gemini. The desire to enjoy your friendships, social life, or new projects is strong, but it can be tough to do so with worries in the mix. You might aim to take a break from the routine if it makes you feel like you are in a rut. Watch for succumbing to pressure or paranoia at this time. Fear of being out of the loop or being blindsided can be at the root of today’s challenging behaviors. Power plays may be at work but not necessarily obvious. A friendship might seem especially weighty or too serious now, when you’d much prefer to feel spontaneous in your interactions and meetings. Even so, you can be experienced mixed feelings towards someone that you need to sort out.
CancerA Venus-Pluto square influencing today can present temporary obstacles or hurdles in relationships, dear Cancer. People can be especially sensitive or easy on the trigger today, with this transit bringing up a bit of paranoia or suspicion in our interactions. Those things you’ve buried or ignored can emerge in unruly and unexpected ways. Your ambitions are motivating and even enjoyable these days, but resentments from others or your own fear of pulling yourself away from a relationship can interfere with the fun. Still, a little self-knowledge and understanding can go a long way. Aim to make peace with the past rather than bring it into the present in disruptive ways. Fortunately, getting in touch with these emotions can help you recognize desires you may not have known were yours!
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit, dear Leo, encouraging a spontaneous approach. However, a Venus-Pluto square is complicated! This transit can have the effect of pulling up buried frustrations. It can trigger fears related to a sense of being out of the loop or out of control. The desire to explore the world around you, live life more spontaneously and expressively, expand your mind, and enjoy different settings and experiences is strong these days. Today, you can feel weighed down by pressures related to work and health. There can be a lack of mobility or a feeling of being overwhelmed with things to do. You may not want to, but delegating tasks, releasing your tight hold on your work or routines, or reducing your workload might help you find more time to explore, expand, and flourish. Consider that if you’ve pushed yourself too hard in a particular area, it will infringe upon your extracurricular activities.
VirgoA Venus-Pluto aspect influencing today can complicate feelings or stir tensions in your romantic or personal life, dear Virgo, pulling you away from exploring new sensations and experiences. On the one hand, you can be excited about newfound discoveries, desires, and feelings, and on the other, emotions are complex, and some insecurities can threaten to ruin the fun. Look for ways to let go of negative thinking or obsessions, especially if they seem to intrude upon productive times. Try to let go of overanalyzing matters or dwelling on things you can’t control, particularly people and relationships, to free yourself up for more positive, empowering energy coming into your life. However, this transit also serves a purpose, and it can be revealing to learn more about your deeper desires and fears. Aim to identify possessive streaks as a symptom of something that runs more deeply than the matter at hand. Consciously allowing yourself to let go, even a little, can be cathartic now.
LibraVenus is heading into a square with Pluto, dear Libra, and there can be storm clouds if you’ve been ignoring or burying your feelings, fears, or resentments, particularly with family, a close friend, or a partner. At the root of tension may be a need to make profound, lasting changes that pull you out of a rut. However, try not to put all the pressure on yourself to do so immediately. Keeping the peace is a noble aspiration, but sometimes it encourages holding onto grudges. Today, you may see these resentments more clearly! If stress weakens you enough that insecurities and fears emerge and take over, consider finding ways to avoid dwelling. Avoid taking things too personally, but if you let things get to you, make it productive and aim to learn from the frustrations.
ScorpioWith a Venus-Pluto square influencing today, you may be feeling some tension if you have many things going at once, dear Scorpio. While you often react to pressures by suiting up mentally, it’s good to aim for more flexibility. The day has a way of showing you where you’re too attached. Letting go of ideas or plans that are no longer serving you well will ultimately be relieving. Thought patterns that are dragging you down should go. There can be a tendency to feel under-appreciated now, and while this may very well be the case, working on a plan to change it is better than working yourself up and stressing out. A tendency to overindulge can be with you today, and while we all deserve some pampering from time to time, right now, it’s more likely to do with discontent. Fortunately, you’re ready to fix problems, and taking things one step at a time is probably the best strategy.
SagittariusWith a Venus-Pluto transit influencing today, dear Sagittarius, there can be twists or complications with your feelings in a relationship or an issue related to money and resources you’re concerned about affects your mood. It makes sense to be a little more cautious with your things and to draw on patience to understand your fears and feelings. You prefer direct communications but today’s energies are markedly roundabout. Watch for issues with self-worth interfering with your ability to let down your hair and express yourself freely. It can be challenging to stay detached and impartial now, and it’s far too easy to fixate on problems. Ideally, you get into better touch with your desires and goals. Aim to be flexible and willing to adapt.
CapricornPluto in your sign is under strain today, dear Capricorn, and you could come in touch with buried resentment. If you don’t recognize and honor your need to make peace with yourself, you could feel restless today. Focus on fixing problem areas, but don’t pressure yourself to do everything immediately. However, today’s tensions deserve some examination since they’re persistent, recurring ones. They’re likely related to frustrations with the feeling that you’re not in control or “in the know” about events occurring in your private life or relationships. Your ambitions or desire to stay on top of things need taming so that you can take the necessary time off. If there are interpersonal conflicts today, try to learn from them rather than fall back into old patterns of relating that stifle you in the long run.
AquariusWith the Moon in your solar third house today, you gravitate to lighthearted interactions, dear Aquarius, but a Venus-Pluto aspect tends to create drama despite this. With this transit, it’s easy to overreact to little things or minor events. You are highly alert and very much on the ball, but be careful that this doesn’t lead to over-stimulation or nervousness. Watch for attempts to control situations too tightly. Frustrations that you often brush aside seem to work close to the surface today. While it’s important to avoid letting resentment take over, not allowing yourself to feel resentment can limit you. You might discover desires and wants you never knew you had as you aim to understand your sensitive areas and try to let go of mental cycling in circles. A broader perspective or mental refreshment might help you manage things more smoothly.
PiscesThe Moon in your solar second house all day finds you seeking more predictability in your life, dear Pisces, but a Venus-Pluto square can complicate feelings and interactions. Matters of ownership can be heavy, or situations pull up the need to manage feelings of resentment. If you’re facing recurring problems with friends or getting new projects off the ground, recognize the patterns now and aim to get to the bottom of things. There can be mixed messages to manage and perhaps some worries or concerns that you’re not in the loop. If you find yourself over-managing a situation, it’s a sign that you need to pull back and rest. People may not be forthcoming, but it’s important not to try to fill in the blanks since the tendency is to suspect hidden agendas. Treading lightly just for now makes sense.
