Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThere’s quite a strong focus on mental pursuits these days, dear Aries. However, today’s Venus-Neptune aspect can play with our perceptions of value, blurring or distorting them temporarily. Transportation or communications may be unreliable for now. You might become infatuated with ideas, objects, or people, but you may not be seeing these things clearly. Wishful thinking is very much in play and can cloud the truth of a situation. While it’s undoubtedly pleasant in the present, disappointment can follow. You’d do better for yourself appreciating what’s true and real–something that comes far easier later today.
TaurusToday’s Venus-Neptune aspect suggests that it’s best to take your time before drawing conclusions, dear Taurus. Under this transit, wishful thinking tends to cloud what we see. Since Venus is your ruler, you can be in a state of flux, and others might find you a little evasive when you may only be undecided. If you’re not feeling equipped to make decisions and commitments, waiting for a better time makes sense. It’s best to check the fine print today! If there isn’t any, avoid lending and spending and do what you can to avoid misunderstandings or loss of valuables. Today’s energies seem to encourage a bit of fantasy, and some of it can be pleasant, but getting too carried away with ideas is where you might go wrong. Do what you can to avoid waste, making promises, and misunderstandings with friends. Later today, it feels much easier to see and appreciate reality.
GeminiThe Moon spends much of the day in your partnership sector, dear Gemini, and you can feel more invested in your relationships or feedback. Venus, in your sign, forms a square with Neptune today, and it’s all too easy to misread or see things through the lens of wishful thinking, however. Consider that confusion about your general direction, career, or a situation with a superior can play with your mind and confuse your personal choices. If you’ve been chasing a dream that’s leaving you feeling drained, remind yourself that a goal is supposed to make you happy and try to adjust expectations accordingly. Take steps to avoid paying too much for something or making promises that you are unlikely to want to fulfill later. Your confidence and conviction are likely to increase later today.
CancerYou can be feeling more sensitive or vulnerable today, dear Cancer. While you might get to know yourself better, it may be best to try not to let sentiments and whims blur your judgment. Venus is currently transiting your privacy sector and clashes with Neptune, and you could be feeling misunderstood. Keep in mind that letting go of unhealthy illusions can put you in a more empowering position overall. It’s hard to trick yourself into believing something you know in your heart is untrue or unreal, and it’s best to find things to believe in that are real and currently part of your life. Later today, you’re likely to feel more sure-footed.
LeoWith a Venus-Neptune square today, it can be challenging to know where you stand on a matter or with someone, dear Leo. It can be a time when you’re left wondering, which is an uncomfortable frame of mind temporarily. If financial or support issues are up in the air, you can feel the uncertainty now more than usual, and it affects your ability to enjoy yourself. It’s not the best week for committing. Expectations of others may be set too high or too low with this transit, and it’s probably best to aim to enjoy yourself rather than pin your hopes on something in particular. While it’s not the best time to make final or firm plans, you can learn more about yourself, your dreams, and possibly illusions through today’s events. Some form of retreat or getaway would be helpful. It’s better to wait things out than make big decisions based on what you’re currently seeing.
VirgoWith today’s Venus-Neptune square, dear Virgo, if you haven’t been viewing someone, a relationship, or a situation clearly, you’re likely to feel a little let down now. You may have set your expectations of others too high or too low with Neptune transiting your opposite sign in recent years, and today, these can interfere with personal enjoyment. Although looking the other way can soothe you temporarily, you can’t honestly fool yourself over time. Aim to work on putting illusions about people behind you as much as possible since it’s better to love a person for who they are and not what you dream them to be. Avoid letting confusion in your personal life affect your professional dealings today. There is a slight tendency to allow social distractions to interfere with your ambitions right now. Later today, you’re more likely to appreciate seeing things for what they are.
LibraWe continue to have some hazy astrological weather today, dear Libra, and uncertainty surrounding your work or schedule, or a commitment to take care of someone, can figure strongly now. It’s possible that ambiguity can interfere with your personal enjoyment today. Your ruler, Venus, forms a square with Neptune as Mercury recently did. You can feel quite sensitive or vulnerable if you’ve invested your heart in an idea, dream, or belief. Do your best to keep your feet on the ground. This transit is not about giving up on something but adjusting your expectations a little. Be sure to take care of yourself while you take care of everyone else and avoid over-committing out of guilt. As the day advances, you appreciate seeing situations for what they are. Narrowing tasks down can improve your mood.
ScorpioToday’s Venus-Neptune transit tends to blur our vision of a matter, dear Scorpio. You may not be in the best position to judge things in your personal life or in matters in which you’re emotionally invested with this transit in play. It’s not easy to see a person or relationship clearly. Definite answers to your questions or commitments aren’t easy to come by temporarily, and it’s probably best not to make significant or permanent decisions right now since waiting things out makes better sense. Wishful thinking can strongly influence your vision, and taking some shortcuts can be costly in the long run. Later today, it’s easier to focus your energies on things that are real and relevant.
SagittariusIf you’ve been giving too much or too little to a situation, dear Sagittarius, you’ll feel the imbalance now. You may have trouble seeing a person or matter objectively, leaving you in an ambiguous state. There can be some yearning for something more from your connections. However, your best bet is to channel energies into a creative pursuit and take charge of your own happiness. This way, you avoid putting pressure on a relationship, a dream, or a plan to be perfect or something it’s not. At the same time, it’s an opportunity to figure out what may be lacking in your life so that you can make plans to change the situation. It makes sense to keep things even and easy for now. Today’s energies tend to break down boundaries. Even after the fog lifts later today, you would be wise to take this time to tone things down and center yourself.
CapricornExpectations of others may be a little off the mark with uncertainty hanging heavy over you today, dear Capricorn. Again today, avoid over-committing yourself with a Venus-Neptune square breaking down boundaries. Some things are up in the air, and it may be best to accept that idea just for now. Don’t undersell yourself, but avoid pinning all of your hopes on something far out of reach. Take your time to arrive at conclusions since time can be one of the best tools for testing a theory or perception. It allows for reason and objectivity to set in. Consider that you are a bit more emotionally vulnerable today and that wishful thinking might be driving your perceptions more than fact, and then you can make choices accordingly. Later today, the Moon enters your sign, and you can feel surer of yourself and your capabilities.
AquariusThere continue to be some problems seeing things clearly today, dear Aquarius. While Venus in your solar fifth house is strong for creative, pleasurable, and romantic pursuits these days, its square to Neptune today can be tricky for situations requiring objectivity. Turning a blind eye to a problem can be problematic now. Aim to invest your emotions in something you have and love rather than pin your hopes on something out of reach just for now. Don’t sell yourself short, particularly in your relationships, but also in business. This transit can leave us a little vulnerable. Later today, things feel less foggy, and the mood suits you well, but you nevertheless may need some rest or downtime. The Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, and taking a break from the usual pace or routine can be most rewarding.
PiscesThe Moon spends much of the day in your sector of responsibilities and long-term goals, dear Pisces. It keeps you looking far ahead, and it’s a good checkpoint period for assessing your progress. Still, today’s Venus-Neptune square points to a tendency for wishful thinking to skew our vision, particularly of those things in which your heart is very much involved. Your desire for security, comfort, and peace is particularly strong these days with Venus in your home and family sector. You could be yearning for more than the usual or ordinary, and you’re particularly sensitive to imbalances in your personal life. Do your best to avoid going to emotional extremes and take the time to get in touch with your true needs. Explore the roots of any discontent stirred today. Fortunately, if you concentrate on what you have rather than what you lack today, you’ll feel a whole lot more centered and grounded.
