Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesVenus has just moved into your communications sector, dear Aries. It’s a yearly transit, but Venus turned retrograde in this sector last year, complicating its guest stay. This time around, you’re likely to enjoy more of the benefits of this easygoing transit. It’s a favorable period for new interests and conveying your message well. With the goddess of love and harmony working its magic in your sector of connecting and learning until June 2nd, you’re expressing yourself with considerable charm. You more deeply enjoy learning, conversing, and bonding. It’s an excellent time to harmonize with relatives and acquaintances. You might receive positive publicity. Also this year, Venus harmonizes with planets in your social sector during its transit, and it’s fabulous for friendship, camaraderie, and fun projects. Friendships might form through your studies, errands, or networking. Today, any work on a pet project or intellectual pursuit fares exceptionally well. You’re recognizing your emotional needs and expressing your feelings in satisfying ways.
TaurusVenus just left your sign and moved into your resources sector for a stay until June 2nd, dear Taurus. The cycle ahead of you is excellent for getting in touch with your feelings and appreciating people in your life. It’s also strong for better understanding your money situation and basic needs. Venus is your planetary ruler, and its transit here brings out your natural love of comfort and predictability. Comforting activities help you heal, and you gravitate to activities that soothe and boost your confidence. Attracting the right resources to you can be easy and natural now. Good advice may find you today. You begin the day preferring to rebuild your energy rather than expend it, and later today, the Moon moves into your sign, pulling you out of your shell.
GeminiVenus just moved into your sign, where it will stay until June 2nd, dear Gemini. This fabulous cycle connects you with your powers of attraction. You’re expressing yourself more freely, and others take notice. Enjoying and pampering yourself can figure strongly. In the past few weeks with Venus in your privacy sector, feelings may have been kept private or at bay. You’re now more noticeable and clearer about your passions, needs, and wants. You may feel that you’re beginning a new cycle in love at this time, or you are starting fresh with expressiveness. In the weeks ahead, there is a stronger focus on pleasure and love in your life. You’re giving out good vibes and receiving them in return.
CancerVenus is now a guest of your solar twelfth house, dear Cancer, making it a good time to process recent events and current feelings. Until June 2nd, benefits come from paying more attention to the hidden elements and patterns of your interactions. In fact, you can be looking at your life, feelings, and relationships in a new light during this cycle. It’s a time for checking in with your deeper feelings about a matter or a person. The introspection you do now can be constructive for after June 2nd, when Venus will spend time in your sign, and you’re likely to feel refreshed and ready to turn over a whole new leaf in your romantic or social life. Until then, it’s possible that love is private, undercover, or confusing. Enjoyment of personal time is likely now, however.
LeoVenus has just moved into your solar eleventh house, dear Leo, where it will guest-stay until June 2nd.
