Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus begins its transit of your solar fourth house today, where it will stay until June 5th, dear Aries. In the weeks ahead, you can find more joy in your family and home life or enjoy more entertainment and pleasurable energy in your domestic world. You are a little more protective with your heart, tending to stick to the familiar and secure rather than venture out with your heart on your sleeve. Some hesitancy and caution with love, the pursuit of pleasure, and money are standard with this transit. Real estate matters can be favorable. Today’s Venus-Pluto aspect is a little awkward, however. Vulnerable spots and insecurities are more evident in your relationships, and it may be difficult to confront issues directly. Mixed signals are likely. Insecurity or responsibility might hold you back from expressing yourself openly and naturally. There can be some hesitation or second-guessing, but it’s temporary. Try not to let this discourage you, but do let it slow you down to catch mistakes before moving forward. Aim to focus on ways to improve things as you advance.
TaurusYour ruler, Venus, begins its transit of your communications sector, dear Taurus, where it will visit until June 5th. You’re moving into a more curious and chatty phase, and you bring special charm and diplomacy to your communications. You’ll be taking more pleasure in your daily affairs, connecting with friends, exploring mental interests and topics, or learning new things in the month ahead. Today, pre-existing problems in intimate relationships can be working close to the surface, possibly interfering with work and duties. If people have been overstepping their bounds, you can feel frustrated now. Events now help you see the need to make adjustments. In other words, you’re gaining more than is immediately apparent.
GeminiVenus leaves your sign and heads into your resources sector today, dear Gemini. With this transit until June 5th, you’re in a good position to enjoy yourself without self-consciousness. The focus is on building, settling in, and getting comfortable. Love is more about security and comfort, and affections stabilize as you value simpler pleasures. Getting along well with others can be one way to boost your business or income, and relationships already in place can benefit from steadier energy. This transit helps steady your emotions in the weeks ahead. It also stimulates your practical eye and sense of balance! A minor conflict between Venus and Pluto today can temporarily magnify differences in spending, values, or respect in a relationship. You may need to adjust something to get back on track. Playing both sides may end up complicating your life further. While it’s easy to focus on what’s not working in your life, the better use of your energy is to straighten out problems and details. Aim to learn from your trigger points if you’re feeling resentful.
CancerVenus enters your sign today, dear Cancer, and will be your guest until June 5th. You’ve had the time and opportunity to process your feelings and connect with your emotional and romantic past in recent weeks while Venus was in your solar twelfth house. You may have nursed some old hurts before moving forward. In the month ahead, you’re more expressive and sure of your needs and affections. People appreciate your style and the traits you express naturally. This cycle puts the focus on pleasure and love. It’s a pleasant, attention-getting cycle when you’re more inclined to spend extra time on yourself and your needs and wishes. While it may not be your most disciplined time, it is undoubtedly a period for carrying yourself with more confidence and warmth. Today, however, Venus forms a minor challenging aspect with Pluto, and money matters and questions of ownership can be tricky issues, needing delicate handling. Alternatively, there can be doubts about a person in your life or an uncomfortable decision. Make adjustments to plans now for best results.
LeoVenus begins its transit of your solar twelfth house today, dear Leo. Active until June 5th, this cycle encourages you to explore your feelings by easing up on analyzing them. It can be a beautiful period to enjoy some downtime. There can be some mystery to your love life, feelings, and affections in the weeks ahead. You might aim to release old or outdated attitudes and clear “space” so that new experiences and feelings can enter your life. You may be a little more tentative about feelings and perhaps purchases during this cycle. Today, Venus forms a minor challenging aspect to Pluto, and you get in touch with some of the hidden forces at work in your life that may be undermining your relationships. Fears and resentments can be at the root of discontent. Ghosts from the past can crop up. Others don’t readily let you have your way today, which can be frustrating, but possibly a blessing in disguise. Slowing down can work to your benefit now!
VirgoVenus moves into your solar eleventh house and harmony with your sign today, dear Virgo. Until June 5th, happiness goals are in focus, and friendships can get a nice boost. This transit awakens your need to connect with others or with a special project. You can enjoy more warmth, grace, or pleasure and enjoyment in your social life. Your appeal as a friend or colleague soars, and you’re generally more approachable and companionable. The weeks ahead favor spreading your wings, reaching out, and making contact. People value your friendship, input, and company more than usual. Even so, with today’s Venus-Pluto minor challenge, you can wrestle with reminders of disappointments from your past or feelings of guilt. Work or health pursuits can make it hard to fully enjoy yourself in other areas of life, but this dilemma is temporary. Fortunately, some discomfort or discontent can lead to the determination to make improvements.
LibraVenus begins its transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Libra, improving your experience in these areas until June 5th. You might enjoy your work and responsibilities much more during this cycle, or there could be social or romantic opportunities through business or formal functions. You bring a friendlier manner to your professional or public dealings. It’s a great time for a reputation boost or more pleasant connections. You might also enjoy setting goals for yourself. A special achievement or an increased desire to perform and excel can figure strongly. Today, there can be some resentments or fears that distract you from your priorities temporarily. It may be helpful to remember that you can’t please everyone!
ScorpioVenus moves into your solar ninth house and into harmony with your sign, dear Scorpio, where it will transit until June 5th. It may be a time when someone inspires you or you enjoy pleasant mind-expanding experiences. You might become inspired by a loved one, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. This transit can very well bring desired situations your way. You are braver with your tastes, and sharing ideas and beliefs is especially fun, rewarding, and even relationship-enhancing in the weeks ahead. Still, you can be a little less tolerant of problems or complications in your relationships. You seem to do better in situations outside of the routine regarding romance, business, and shopping. Today brings an awkward aspect between Venus and Pluto, however, and there can be a tricky decision or dilemma. On the one hand, you might crave more freedom with Venus in your adventure sector, but on the other, emotions are complicated as a good part of you wants to play things safe. Interactions can stimulate intense feelings, and something or someone might remind you of issues you’d prefer to forget. Even so, this gives you the chance to face and deal with sticky feelings.
SagittariusVenus moves into your solar eighth house for a stay until June 5th, dear Sagittarius. It’s a great cycle for working on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. It’s also strong for understanding your own deeper side and your innermost desires and motivations. Financially speaking, you may find backing or support. Today, however, a Venus-Pluto quincunx can point to some doubts that are difficult to ignore. Old resentments may emerge. There is a strong need for intimacy and a desire to control things, and these two things don’t go together well! Aim to avoid overanalyzing, which can take you to frustrating places now. Instead, look for ways to learn from your resentment or anger.
CapricornVenus enters your partnership sector today, dear Capricorn, and until June 5th, you’re in especially fine shape in your close connections. It’s a healthy cycle for attracting and enhancing close relationships. You’re more open to others’ needs and agendas. It may not be the ideal time to tackle deep issues, but it is a good period for pleasant interactions. Venus brings more joy and pleasure to your connections and sometimes brings a helpful person into your life. In the weeks ahead, you might often find yourself in the position of peacemaker or mediator. Your need for companionship increases. Today, however, your feelings can be overwhelming or challenging to understand with Venus and Pluto’s awkward aspect. People can give off confusing or mixed signals, but it’s better to accept that things are temporarily out of sync and avoid jumping to conclusions. Aim to reflect, and don’t let insecurities or fears drive behavior. Fortunately, your ability to see the flaws is enhanced now, which you can put to good use.
AquariusVenus enters your work and health sector today, dear Aquarius, and will stay in this area of your solar chart until June 5th. This cycle helps bring harmony to your daily affairs or work. It can be a time of increased social opportunities through work, chores, daily routines, or health pursuits. Instead, this transit can be about more fully enjoying taking care of your everyday life. Today, however, you could face some limitations or blocks with Venus in a minor challenging aspect with Pluto in your sign. Creative energy is abundant when it’s with you today, but there can be some concerns or worries that might undermine your good mood. If you’ve recently been feeling put upon, you might recognize the imbalances more clearly now.
PiscesVenus moves into your solar fifth house today, dear Pisces, and will encourage you to discover your joy until June 5th. Your natural charm shines through, and matters related to love, entertainment, leisure, creativity, and children are favored. This transit awakens 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. Today, however, there may be some friction due to heightened sensitivity or touchiness. Defensiveness and resistance are possible with Venus and Pluto connecting. If others are pushing your buttons, try to keep a cool head. It’s wise to acknowledge insecurities or fears that emerge now.
