Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Venus and Neptune in harmony, dear Aries, you’re in an excellent position to better understand people and money, not through analysis but your intuition! Finances may improve through unusual, hidden, or unexpected channels, and you’re tuning in quite beautifully to trends that can help generate business ideas and approaches. With more patience than usual, you may very well see beauty in people, places, and situations you haven’t seen before. This transit inspires and encourages your imagination. Later today, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square, and your social life may fall short of your expectations in some manner. However, being left to your own resources can work in your favor. It can also be a time to catch your breath and seek better strategies to pursue your goals. Consider whether a particular plan or endeavor needs to evolve or dissolve. If you need to catch up or if you’re off track, this is a time for reorienting yourself. While serious energy can surround a relationship or activity, adjusting expectations as a direct result may be helpful.
TaurusToday’s Venus-Neptune transit nicely accents your intuition, dear Taurus, and your powers of attraction are high. Sometimes, your imagination can lead you down the wrong path, but right now, it’s working in your favor. Even without knowing all the details, you arrive at a place of understanding about recent events, especially surrounding your relationships. Others give you the benefit of the doubt. You are at your most companionable, and people tend to be on your side. Friendships seem supportive of your dreams and goals. Conversations and interactions help you see your feelings and ideas more clearly. Whether directly or indirectly, others show you things about yourself that you may not acknowledge otherwise. As the day advances, we approach a Sun-Saturn square, and there can be reminders of an area of your life that requires patience. You may not get what you want just now, probably due to career or other responsibilities and limitations. Still, delays or slowdowns can help you refocus your attention on your priorities, and as you do, you might discover new and improved methods. It’s better to focus on what’s best for you in the long term rather than seek immediate gratification. If the pressure of expectations weighs on you, consider being clearer about your need for appreciation. People may forget that you sometimes need positive feedback or encouragement.
GeminiA Venus-Neptune transit can bring out the artist in you, dear Gemini. Your imagination soars. You arrive at solutions instinctively and not necessarily logically, applying creativity to practical matters. There could be unusual circumstances connecting you with the right people, projects, and information, particularly regarding work and health issues. Business can benefit if you consider any neglected spiritual or humanitarian goals. You have a stronger desire to make and produce beautiful things and may be thinking about ways to turn dreams into products, systems, or plans. However, the Sun’s impending square to Saturn can bring a sobering reality about a project or situation later today. Aim to look for ways to work around roadblocks rather than nursing discouragement. Getting through your responsibilities or work can feel longer and slower, making it best to take things one step at a time and avoid pushing yourself. Your timing may be off, but it’s temporary. With the Sun in your solar sixth house these days, you want to express yourself through your routines, but you could feel overburdened or under-appreciated for your efforts today. Aim to please yourself by meeting your responsibilities to overcome the current block. You may well arrive at a stronger appreciation of your ability to rely on yourself.
CancerA Venus-Neptune transit is excellent for compassion, forgiveness, and charm, dear Cancer. Your gentleness is more appealing than usual, and it’s a perfect time for forgiveness, whether it’s about forgiving others or yourself for something from the past that isn’t going to change! You can experience some good feelings of acceptance now, and it’s comforting. You’ll find it easier to enjoy yourself when you let go of negative thoughts or expectations. It feels natural to express yourself, learn, play, and connect more heartfully. However, with a Sun-Saturn square coming into play as the day advances, you could experience temporary doubts about recent projects or relationships. Slowing things down can be a critical strategy–it’s time to clear some hurdles before you move a matter forward. Be as patient as you can and play by all rules for the best results since it’s simply not the time for cutting corners. Getting back on track may require a rest or some tweaking of expectations. If you’re feeling insecure, remind yourself that what you think you’re lacking is probably exaggerated in your mind’s eye. Aim to improve those things you can control and forget about the rest.
LeoWith Venus and Neptune harmonizing, dear Leo, it can be a great time to strengthen your relationships by appreciating the common or familiar threads that connect you. Compassion flows more naturally and liberally, and you’re open to seeing the positive side of people and situations. Your interactions can feature more tenderness and gentleness, and a theme of service or support boosts your day. As the day advances, we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that adds strain or worry to the day’s energy. It may be that someone is putting a damper on your plans or is overly critical. Things may feel slow and long just for now, but efforts to improve your life, even in small ways, can have a remarkable impact on the future. Keeping things simple can ultimately speed things up, even if it feels that you’re backtracking at the moment. Try to avoid taking problem areas too much to heart, but aim to patch up vulnerable spots of your life. This attitude will help strengthen you when Saturn is putting pressure on you in the future.
VirgoWith Venus and Neptune harmonizing, dear Virgo, you might arrive at a wonderful understanding with someone. A partner or friend’s acceptance, conversation, or input/feedback can help you relax. This transit encourages you to let go of tension and enjoy life’s beautiful moments. There is good energy for expressing your care and concern verbally and getting a warm message across because people look for the intention behind the words and are less focused on the syntax. You’re also in good shape to enjoy what you’re learning, with a learning breakthrough possible. As the day advances, a Sun-Saturn square comes into influence, bringing responsibilities and obligations to mind. The need to set some limits may arise, particularly with work and daily life. You could be feeling drained physically, and daily responsibilities can be overwhelming as a result. Do your best to simplify, prioritize, and keep things real. Flaws in a current project may seem magnified, but rushing to fix them may lead to a sloppy job. However, it can be a good time for you to see problem areas that need your attention. What appears as setbacks are opportunities to make vital changes before moving forward. You may discover things you’ve overlooked or that there is a better method for handling a matter. Aim to take things one step at a time or rest and conserve energy rather than push things or yourself today.
LibraA Venus-Neptune transit stirs your imagination, dear Libra. You appreciate the finer things in life. You might even make a soul connection or get the feeling that things are magically falling into place. You’ll likely enjoy some psychic rapport with someone in your life. Money or business ideas can be golden now, as you sense what others need and want. You’re also in a better place about your own needs and values. Money could come through unusual or hidden sources, and ideas related to work or health can inspire you. Maintaining some mystery around you can work to your benefit, and holding back a little can be the right strategy for now. As the day advances, a Sun-Saturn square comes into influence, and it can magnify responsibilities or obstacles. A seeming roadblock can arise around a love relationship, a relationship with a child, or a creative project. Circumstances or people seem disapproving or unhelpful, and you may be left to your own resources. An apparent setback, however, may lead to a vital step concerning long-term happiness, as is often the case with transits involving Saturn, the great teacher. You’re also learning about what you need in the long run. Look for a middle ground if conflicts emerge. Others may not be very forthcoming, warm, or expressive, which can feel a little cold but could also allow you enough space to discover resources you may not have known you had.
ScorpioA Venus-Neptune transit sprinkles some magic on your interactions, dear Scorpio, and favors the spiritual and social elements of your life. The more charming and likable qualities of your nature are in the spotlight, and a gentle, romantic, or dreamy theme can be part of this. Holding back just a little can be helpful. Some emotional distance –just a little–can help you assess a situation and perhaps enjoy yourself more than usual. It can also attract others! However, we’re heading toward a Sun-Saturn square, marking a checkpoint for your goals and plans. More likely than not, this transit is about facing a limit or reality check. Since the Sun is currently in your sign, you may find it challenging to satisfy both your need for independence and your desire for security and assurance. You want to pursue your personal goals without feeling you’re letting someone down. Someone may be disapproving, or chores and responsibilities feel more weighty than usual. The key is to be patient and practice self-discipline, seeking long-term satisfaction rather than instant gratification.
SagittariusWith a Venus-Neptune transit, you can get a warm feeling about a secret you’re holding, dear Sagittarius, or a sense of peace about your private life. Instead, you can come to an understanding of a delicate matter from the past. Sometimes closure is about letting go of the idea of getting it! You’re also in good shape for extending someone a hand or for a compassionate exchange. This transit soothes you and brings the light of understanding to your heart. It follows that forgiveness comes more readily. You’re also in fine shape for drawing upon your inner wisdom and helping others. There can be an important meeting or event behind the scenes or a new understanding of an issue that has weighed heavily on you. As the day advances, some hesitation or blockage can temporarily slow you down. While annoying, delays now can be helpful in the long run if they open your eyes to areas that need some refinement. A Sun-Saturn transit tends to magnify flaws temporarily. You can help yourself by adjusting your speed, following rules, exercising patience, and conserving energy by prioritizing. Avoid pushing things forward for the best results.
CapricornA Venus-Neptune trine helps soothe and smooth out your life in subtle ways, dear Capricorn, and you’re getting to a warmer headspace. A friend or network could be integral to bringing everything into perspective, or someone’s thoughtfulness lifts your spirits. Forgiveness comes naturally. You could enjoy a psychic rapport with someone or express compassion, forgiveness, and kind words that inspire others. If you need to build bridges, it’s a fine time to do so in gentle, even indirect ways. You’re more inclined to appreciate the positive things in your day, as well as the good people in your life. However, as the day advances, the Sun-Saturn square suggests it’s best to draw upon patience and follow some rules. An obstacle can break the flow. Even if you want to push something ahead, it may be better to conserve your energy and resources. Others could be grumpy or critical. The best strategy now is to focus on long-term benefits and keep expectations simple. Resign yourself to making edits and adjustments rather than bold moves and remind yourself it’s temporary.
AquariusIn the first half of the day, letting go of tension or clearing your head can be most rewarding, dear Aquarius. You have a third eye with business and practical matters, but you also see different layers of a person or situation to your benefit. You’re coming from a place of intuition rather than listening to your fears, and hunches seem more accurate as a result. Extra charm or intrigue surrounds you in a leadership or professional role, which works to your advantage. Financial thinking is exceptionally bright, and you’re excited to arrive at solutions to problems. However, as the day advances, restrictions are possible as the Sun approaches a square to Saturn–there’s more to work through. This transit reminds you to recommit to your goals or adjust them so that they better suit your purpose. There are better times to go against the grain. Look for ways to maximize long-term success or happiness rather than focusing on the short term. Backing down is sometimes the better strategy until strength and confidence return.
PiscesIn the first half of the day, you can entertain interesting ideas and express yourself well, dear Pisces, as Venus and Neptune harmonize. This transit particularly shines for acceptance, understanding, and forgiveness, which you do exceptionally well! You might have an important revelation that involves letting something go and putting your faith in the universe that it will find its way to where it belongs. It feels natural and happy to seek new experiences and reach out to others. Even so, you tend to attract rather than act just for now, and it seems the best approach. You attract love and friendship into your life through shared intellectual interests. However, as the day advances, blocks can enter the picture. Interactions tend to trigger old problem areas as we head toward a Sun-Saturn square that can temper your enthusiasm. Slowing down may be helpful sometimes, even if it’s a bit frustrating, and get you back on track. However, don’t push this so far that you waste too much time feeling discouraged. It’s important to pick yourself up and focus on solving problems step by step. In the face of restrictions or limits, the best strategy can be to consider what’s genuinely best for you in the long rather than the short term.
