Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesFrustrations, errors, or insecurities can seem to undermine you at times today, dear Aries, or you could be feeling a little off in your interactions. You might feel more vulnerable or possibly too open with Chiron in your sign in opposition to Venus. You might be wondering about how someone feels about you or how deep a commitment is. Try not to allow vague worries and doubts hold you back, but it might be better to wait for a better day to make major choices. If soft spots are easily triggered, you get the chance to take a closer look and discover ways to repair them, which could involve another person and an important talk. Things might get messy before they improve. Keep in mind, too, that with Mercury square Saturn in effect today and until the 6th, a problem may take some time before you get answers. As the day advances, your sense of practical priorities is strong, and you can feel some comfort in structure or self-discipline.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Taurus, adding color to your emotional world. With complicated transits influencing mostly the first half of the day, some interactions can be a little delicate. You may not feel as fully appreciated as you’d like. You could feel you’re not getting what you need from others as your ruler, Venus, opposes Chiron. However, events of the day tend to bring you to a greater understanding of your commitment to self-care. If you’ve invested too much energy into something that’s not giving back, you’ll feel the need to make changes now. Work or health problems can reach a head, especially if you’ve let some matters slide or avoided issues. Defer decisions to a later date, if possible, and especially if you are feeling confused or down. Later today, you might enjoy focusing on self-improvement or coming to someone’s aid. Something structured helps your mood. The need to let go of a method or even a particular project or work goal may become apparent today.
GeminiThere is a strong tendency to take things quite personally today, dear Gemini. Discomfort on a social level might lead to over-indulgent tendencies. Instead of overdoing, pulling back temporarily makes the most sense, although it’s not instinctive. Aim to pay attention to feelings that emerge now. While they may disguise themselves as whims of the moment, they are more likely to be issues that you’ve buried or missed in the past. Dealing with information blocks or mechanical problems can also figure strongly. With the Moon’s transit of your privacy sector all day, you’d do well with relaxing and healing activities. As the day advances, you can find a good feeling of structure from behind the scenes activities. Aim to listen to emotional signals to regroup and collect yourself.
CancerIt may not be easy to clearly see reputation and professional matters today, dear Cancer. However, relationship issues, particularly family ones, that reach a head today can get you over a critical hump, and the rest should be uphill. It can be a turning point week. At the same time, major decision making is best left for another time, if possible. Look for answers within, and take your time with it. There aren’t clear answers for you just yet. As the day advances, you can feel soothed as you get a stronger grip on your priorities. Fulfilling your responsibilities can be rewarding as you feel especially capable of doing so. Putting some emotions aside to accomplish something important to you makes sense now. You might see the more reliable side of others and fully appreciate it.
LeoThere’s likely to be continued sensitivity to social interactions and communications today, dear Leo. It may be best to avoid reading too much into what others are doing. You owe it to yourself to look for the positive rather than worry about what you don’t know. As well, watch for making gestures or comments that don’t express what you feel. There is a tendency to live too much in the head and miss the subtle cues in the process. The Moon spends the day in your solar tenth house, and while this transit may seem to encourage you to go big, this is a time for a bit of patience. A Moon-Saturn trine later today favors a dedicated and structured approach. Your mood evens out considerably. There can be problems to solve, but you’ll do best if you take them slowly and patiently.
VirgoWith matters of the heart or finances, dear Virgo, your vulnerable spots can be in the spotlight today. It can be hard to know whether you need comfort and familiarity or excitement and growth. Decision-making today could be emotionally-driven or based on fear and insecurity, so you may want to wait for a better, clearer day to make crucial decisions. Others are sensitive, and problems are unlikely to unravel just yet. If someone’s not seeing matters of security or finances in the same way as you right now, try to be patient. You may need to confront a financial or ownership matter to get over a hump. Take notes on what is triggering your soft spots, as this is what you will need to focus on building up to move forward. Later today, your sense of opportunities is practical and realistic. When it comes to learning, you take a hands-on and self-directed approach, needing to see results for yourself to remain engaged. The practical side of your mind is in strong focus now.
LibraIt can be challenging to go after what you want directly today, dear Libra, with some complicated transits. Relating healthily with a partner or peer is not straightforward with a Venus-Chiron opposition. You may not see eye to eye with a significant person in your life. Alternatively, you might discover or focus on a need or fear you hadn’t acknowledged in yourself. Still, you are learning more about yourself through your relationships, and you should take this opportunity to repair and grow. Consider reflecting rather than taking concrete action. The day can begin with some misunderstandings or confusion, but as it advances, you’re more inclined to want to roll up your sleeves and get things done. It’s a day for taking measured steps towards a goal rather than attempting to push forward quickly.
ScorpioWrestling with fears or insecurities is possible today, dear Scorpio, but it’s a good time to notice the behaviors that are holding you back from pursuing your goals. In the process, watch for the tendency to be a little too hard on yourself. A Venus-Chiron opposition today suggests you can be primarily concerned with where you stand with others. It’s normal to worry, but it becomes unhealthy if overdone. While you shouldn’t avoid your responsibilities, you should try not to take them so seriously that you lose yourself in them. If your thinking is swinging between imagining the best and the worst, try to nip this in the bud since it won’t do you any favors, as the truth probably lies somewhere in between. The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, putting your emotional focus quite squarely on your relationships. While you should probably watch for over-investing in them, as the day advances, it’s generally a good time to bond and improve your connections.
SagittariusThere can be some disorienting or distracting energies again today, dear Sagittarius, and they may surround friends and acquaintances, pet projects, and creative expression. There can be some lack of clarity about who or what to value temporarily. As such, it’s best to control behavior that may give you a reason for regret at a later date, such as quick decisions in a relationship or impulsive spending. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and you’re inclined to seek order in your daily affairs. Managing your things can free you up to enjoy yourself later. As the day advances, you can experience a stronger drive to seek security, even if you began the day feeling less than focused. Aim to work on basic foundations and support systems for best results.
CapricornYou might aim to learn as much as you can from your interactions rather than dwelling on problem areas today, dear Capricorn. This becomes easier as the day advances, but watch for reading a situation from a place of insecurity until then. With Venus opposite Chiron today, disagreements are likely about values or styles of expressing love or affection. It’s vital to view differences as chances to learn about other perspectives rather than see them as threatening or concerning. Observe and listen, but consider your fears in the process and how they may interfere with healthy relating patterns. Events occurring now may very well open up old wounds, and with wounds wide open, you may have an opportunity to find ways to heal. As the day advances, you can feel increasingly more focused and interested in seeing some results. Ambitions are gently nurtured. The Moon supports Saturn in your sign, contributing to a stronger sense and love of structure.
AquariusWith complicated aspects in play today, dear Aquarius, words or gestures might stir up various problems. We can be defensive today, and misunderstandings or errors can be prominent. Before it spirals out of control, consider whether it’s better to look for a deeper meaning in a situation, as another side to the story can help round things out. Today’s events could call up old hurt or old problems. Learn from what opens up today, even if it’s not entirely comfortable to face problem areas. Keeping something buried will only prolong issues. With Venus opposite Chiron today, whatever emerges brings on a turning point. As the day advances, there is a growing desire to get things done, and you’re most interested in tackling problems at their root. You can be talented at bringing elements of the past, such as accumulated wisdom or heritage, to current projects and activities supportively. The focus is on attention to your domestic or personal needs today.
PiscesTricky matters can capture your attention today, dear Pisces. Ideally, it can feel good to clear the air or put something behind you. You may even feel that weight lifts off your shoulders. Facing or taking responsibility for something can be rewarding, even if a little messy. There can be issues that stir feelings of anxiety or possibly even guilt, but do your best not to let these drive your behavior. Today’s Venus-Chiron opposition brings problem areas out in the open and seems the only way to start repairing and healing. Consider that it’s not easy to see the true value of people, situations, and material things, making it best to wait out the major decisions. As the day advances, you’re likely to be more and more productive. There can be a pioneering streak that emerges, as you’re interested in getting a jump on things. Getting back to basics can be reassuring.
