Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesSeek opportunities to clear up debts or settle accounts today, dear Aries. It’s a great time to consider letting go of unnecessary attachments, such as through ways to pay off debts or recover loans. There are better times to take on something new, however, with your ruling planet, Mars, newly retrograde. Venus aligns with the South Node in your solar eighth house, and you can feel drawn to comfortable situations, but you may be missing an opportunity right in front of you in the process! You have a strong desire to know that your future is secure and that achieving your goals will satisfy you in the long run.
TaurusAvoid taking on responsibilities that others should be handling themselves, dear Taurus, or watch for relying too heavily on others when you’d be better off getting things done independently. You might benefit from looking to the past for answers to problems in the present. Tying up loose ends may be necessary before you can go forward with confidence. It’s a good time to find something lost or overlooked and, on another level, see where you may be taking the easy road to your disadvantage. Take advantage of the powerful energy available for intuiting your way in your projects, communications, and friendships.
GeminiYou may be looking to the past for answers to work or health concerns, which can be a helpful exercise in moderation, dear Gemini. However, it may be best to avoid falling back on old methods just because they’re more comfortable if they prevent you from moving forward. Consider whether you’re holding onto something that no longer serves you well, particularly an attitude or expectation. Settling accounts can be in order now as Venus connects with the South Node. There’s also a tendency to throw yourself into chores or work to avoid dealing with a problem or emotion. Fortunately, your instincts are good for planning surrounding money and practical matters.
CancerThere can be a connection with an old love interest or friend, dear Cancer, or you’re feeling sentimental about an old love or pet project. You can benefit from looking to the past, as you may reawaken a worthwhile pursuit, but consider where you could be holding onto the past in unhealthy ways. As Venus meets the South Node, your inclination may be to fall back on quick fixes or the easy route instead of moving in the direction of challenge, reward, and growth. Avoid carelessness in matters of the heart. Today is better for tying up loose ends than making new long-term commitments or agreements. Temporarily, progress can be slow with a heartfelt interest, such as a love relationship or a creative project. Still, you can take small steps towards achieving your goals that reward and satisfy.
LeoToday, there is an inclination to fall back on comfortable behaviors rather than challenge yourself or aim to grow and learn, dear Leo. Old habits have a strong pull on you now, and a good deed from the past can benefit you. Using your talents can reap rewards, but it may also be wise to challenge yourself in a small way. Consider that you could be taking the path of least resistance. It may be wise to take some time out or focus on the vision rather than the details of a plan or project just for now. Later today, the Moon heads into your intimacy sector, and the desire to focus and specialize is strong.
VirgoToday’s energies tend to pull you into the past, dear Virgo. You’re disinclined to put yourself out or challenge yourself, preferring to fall back on talents and resources you already have, which can be just what you need from time to time. Still, it’s best to avoid enabling or appeasing others in ways that might come back to haunt you later. Be discreet and tactful, particularly with relatives, neighbors, and classmates, but avoid promises or deferrals. As the day advances, energies are good for daydreams, happiness goals, sharing, and connecting. Someone may seek your guidance, and you feel great about helping. The Moon enters your partnership sector for a couple of days, and you seek a little more interaction and feedback. Finding a balance in your life is in focus.
LibraWith a stronger awareness of where you may be over-attached today, dear Libra, you get in a good position to clear away obstacles related to money and business. There is a tendency to want to do it all yourself these days, but sharing, trusting, and pairing up to accomplish something is the way to go for the rewards, even if it seems the more challenging route to take at the moment. Look to let go of things you don’t need. You might connect with someone who helps you feel comfortable or has a reassuring effect on you. Later today, the Moon heads into your work and health sector, and you get into problem-solving mode.
ScorpioToday’s Venus-South Node alignment helps you let go of stress and tension, dear Scorpio. It can be helpful to release yourself from something from the past. Still, this transit can convince you to take the easy way out. Sometimes you need a break, but other times, you miss opportunities to grow and learn if you back away from a challenge, and the latter may be the case today. If you notice you’re frequently falling back on doing things on your own when pairing up or sharing the load would be much better for you, you might decide to nip this problem in the bud. Dealing with loose ends or settling accounts can be helpful to clear the pathway for smoother endeavors and activities in the future. Later today, the Moon heads into your sector of joy for a stay of over two days, and expressing and enjoying yourself comes more naturally.
SagittariusStrong memories guide you, or unusual connections are made now, dear Sagittarius. You might connect with an old friend as Venus and the South Node align in your solar twelfth house. There can be some tendency to seek the easy way out, but with a little poking around and self-honesty, you might learn what’s most valuable to you, benefiting you greatly. You might tie up loose ends as you become aware of delays or matters that you previously overlooked that now require your attention. You may need to correct past mistakes and omissions to clear the path. As the day advances, you are given to dreaming about ideal living conditions or intimate relationships.
CapricornThe best approach to relationships today is a supportive one–empowering one another works best, leading to increased trust and bonding, dear Capricorn. Socially, you could be in the mood to get comfortable. A connection with an old friend or strong memories of someone from your past can figure strongly now, and you’re in a more sentimental mood than usual. You may need to attend to duties that help clear up delays and set the ball rolling to make progress. Taking a relaxed, creative approach can be a great strategy today, but do watch for trying to take the easy way out when a different choice would help you move forward. Later today, a special someone may be particularly helpful for understanding your ideals and dreams more fully.
AquariusYou’re in an excellent position to inventory your feelings and affections today, dear Aquarius. Venus aligns with the South Node, making it easier to see which attachments may be holding you back from growing and thriving. You might make a plan to clear up old projects that are slowing your progress or take care of duties so that you can start fresh. Charitable acts can be especially satisfying now, and as the day advances, you’re in an excellent position to entertain ideas and dreams about ideal working conditions or jobs.
PiscesYou are taking care of unfinished business now that will help move things forward later, dear Pisces. Today’s transits can prompt you to consider which habits or attachments in your life may be holding you back from growing and thriving, particularly on a mental level or regarding attitudes and mindsets. Aim to use your diplomatic talents in your dealings, but watch for a tendency to please and appease that might later come back to haunt you. Stay alert to possible opportunities to advance your interests instead of sticking to the same old comforts. Lean towards activities and people that encourage you to improve, grow, and develop for the best results now. The Moon heads into your sign later today for a visit of over two days, and emotional needs move to the front burner.
