Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith today’s Sun-Venus minor challenge, part of you wants to keep things light and airy, dear Aries, while the other side is taking things a little more seriously. This discrepancy can lead to indecision or perhaps tense interactions, with misunderstandings more likely than usual. There can be some tendency to make poor decisions, as you can feel mentally lazy or hazy about the details. While your intentions are good and perhaps big when it comes to learning new things and expanding your thinking, part of you wants to keep things simple, uncomplicated, and familiar. Timing may be off, and purchases perhaps unwise or hasty just for now. It may be difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s bothering you. However, the vague discontent you feel is temporary; from it, you may very well discover new ideas or interests. You might also bond with someone through your values and beliefs.
TaurusThere can be times today when you feel torn between business and pleasure, dear Taurus. Your attention is divided — either your relationships distract you from your work, or you’re not entirely present in your relationships because you’re thinking about your work or duties! In truth, the drives towards both areas of life are strong these days, and you have all the tools to do both well. Watch for agreeing to something just to make a problem go away temporarily. It’s tempting, but keep in mind that, by doing so, you’re borrowing from your future. You may feel pressured to make a decision you’re not equipped to make or for which you have inadequate information. Overthinking things doesn’t help things, but it can take a while to figure that out! There is an overindulgent or slapdash approach to thinking today. Your safest bet is to wait things out, if that’s possible, and to postpone financial or relationship decisions in particular.
GeminiThere can be some indecision today, dear Gemini, but putting off drawing a conclusion might work in your favor. The Sun in your sector of work and routines in recent weeks has asked you to meet your responsibilities and improve your efficiency. On the other hand, you have Venus in your sector of creativity, love, and play, encouraging you to let your hair down and enjoy yourself! Most of the time, you can compartmentalize or combine the two without a problem, but these drives clash now, leaving you feeling a little tense. Ideally, this discontent motivates you to find creative solutions. On a different level, today can bring a sense of relief or release through friends or a partnership. Socially, there can be greater freedom and more effortless expression. Still, consider the battle between your head and your heart, as what comes out of you may not be what you intended.
CancerToday’s transits don’t always make decisions straightforward, dear Cancer, but there can be some pleasant spots. The Sun is currently transiting your sector of joy and pleasure, while Venus is moving through the sector of home and family in your solar chart. On the one hand, you’re enjoying quiet times; on the other, you’re seeking more interaction, spontaneity, and feedback. These drives clash at times today, leaving you feeling a little divided and undecided, or possibly tense. Try not to borrow from the future by promising or putting off something that will eventually cost you. You might find that letting go of the pressure to come to a conclusion or decision improves everything. Details may not be clear, but the bigger picture seems to fill in.
LeoThe Moon continues its transit of your creative sector today, dear Leo, and you crave attention and interaction. While enthusiastic, you may not be paying much attention to important details. The Sun and Venus form a minor challenge, influencing the first half of today, and you can feel torn between your drive to take things easy and your curiosity encouraging you to take on projects and activities. This aspect can also lead to some misunderstandings with others. Aim to do your best to divide your time well. Later today, it doesn’t get easier to make decisions. Playful or casual conversation may not work well in professional or public settings, leading to misunderstandings. There can be some scattering of mental energies. However, recreation, entertainment, hobbies, and art or music can figure strongly and help relax and inspire you.
VirgoToday’s transits bring some pleasantness but also indecision, dear Virgo. With the Sun and Venus in a minor clash today, you can feel torn between your genuine desire to keep things simple and safe and your strong curiosity urging you to explore your options. Watch for a sweet tooth, impulsive purchases, sudden cravings, or other manifestations of discontent now. Aim to find more creative ways to satisfy your varied needs. As the day advances, you may want to solve a problem or focus on a particular project, but restlessness keeps your mind from concentrating on the task at hand. Others might challenge your thinking on a matter quite unexpectedly, which can lead you on tangents as well.
LibraWith the Moon spending another day in your communications sector, dear Libra, you may be living in your head in spots today. Aim to be discriminating when it comes to self-expression and try not to leave some people behind or confused. These days, the Sun’s transit of your resources sector encourages you to attend to your practical affairs, pulling up a desire for more predictability in your life. On the other hand, Venus in your sign wants you to express yourself and enjoy a more spontaneous approach to your life. Of course, these different drives can sometimes clash. A symptom of discontent today may be a sudden craving or impulsive choices that should probably be tamed. However, there can be small but significant breakthroughs happening, and you gravitate to activities that feed your desire to feel connected to the world around you. Others’ input might clarify your own position, even if you’re not in agreement–it simply gets you thinking.
ScorpioToday’s energies favor quiet activities and projects focusing on building and developing, dear Scorpio. You seek an anchor. It’s a good time of the month to settle in and assess your situation before moving forward. Still, there can be mild discontent to contend with in spots today. The Sun in your sign these days puts you in the spotlight, while Venus in your privacy sector points to some withdrawal, indecision, or holding back regarding your affections. While you usually manage these differing drives quite expertly, they clash right now, and you can be giving off mixed signals or feeling a little torn. Indecision is likely but temporary. Venus is both supported and challenged, complicating feelings. Aim to enjoy the moment and forget about personal agendas and minor differences in views.
SagittariusThe Moon is in your sign all day, bringing emotions to the surface, dear Sagittarius. Venus in your social sector these days is strong for enjoying activities that make you happy or give you a sense of connection to others. Venus is facing minor challenges today, however, which can complicate your feelings about a friend or a pursuit. Part of you may prefer to keep to yourself or work under the radar, and another side of you wants to get involved. There can also be some vacillation or concerns related to work, health, or schedules. Consider that promises made are unlikely to be easy or interesting to carry out when you’re called to task. But even though tension is possible now, you’re getting into a positive, more detached frame of mind. Fortunately, indecision now is temporary, and it may even delay a decision that should wait for the best results.
CapricornThere can be quite a fair amount of weighing pros and cons, negotiations, and discussions today, dear Capricorn. However, as much as you might enjoy the mental exercise, be aware that it’s hard to know what’s in your heart today, possibly leading to misunderstandings. Generally, with Venus in your solar tenth house these days, you come across well, particularly with bosses, elders, and the like. Today, Venus encounters minor challenges, pointing to some indecision or hesitation. While you may wrestle with mixed feelings, working towards a tangible goal is likely more satisfying than giving in to whims and cravings. Watch for speaking too soon, making promises, and committing to something that holds no appeal later. Be particularly sensitive to over-optimism or exaggeration in others’ responses that can mislead you today — you don’t see things clearly.
AquariusYou can feel a little torn between work and pleasure or work and learning today, dear Aquarius. The Sun and Venus form a minor challenging aspect, highlighting different drives. On the one hand, you’re motivated to produce, perform, and accomplish something solid. On the other, you’re excited about learning something new. You don’t seem to have enough time to do all you want to do! Fortunately, you might gain a pleasant, helpful perspective through an acquaintance or new information that comes your way. However, watch for coming across as more lighthearted than you are actually feeling. As well, be wary of over-the-top expectations. There can be exaggeration or misinformation to deal with, and that’s just fine — in fact, it can be real learning experiences — as long as you avoid jumping to conclusions or jumping into a decision based on these things.
PiscesYou can feel torn between expressing yourself and keeping your observations to yourself today, dear Pisces, which can keep or put you in a state of limbo temporarily. It might also lead to overindulgence. Be on the lookout for this, but be sure you don’t overlook the other opportunities of the day. Decisions made now might be based on the wrong information or dramatic observations. Speaking or promising something too soon can backfire. These days, you’re thinking quite a bit about performance, long-term goals and plans, and recognition. Today, there can be inadequate information or news coming in that skews perceptions just a little bit off. Casual comments may be taken out of context or more seriously than intended. Aim, as much as possible, to let go of overthinking. Having too many balls in the air can prevent you from pursuing a more satisfying line of thought or project. Ease off if things are not clicking now.
