Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesCertainly, with the Moon in your home and family sector much of the day, you’re inclined to be reflective, dear Aries. However, the opportunity to feel lighter and freer arrives as Venus forms a trine to Uranus. Monotony is uninspiring today–you need a change of pace. Taking a more relaxed and creative approach to your life leads to improvements and opportunities. You might hook into a new method, recognize an opening, or leave a burden behind you. A new and improved approach both appeals and benefits you. Bright ideas regarding practical matters, work, or money can figure strongly. Letting go of fear can open up creativity and perhaps even improve your health. Combining work and play comes naturally and works well for you under this influence. There can be a good find or fun and handy purchase, or you can be enthusiastic about doing your money management, work, chores, or practical affairs in a new way.
TaurusThe Moon’s transit of your communications sector continues to encourage your desire to share, learn, and interact today, dear Taurus. As well, your planetary ruler, Venus, forms a trine with Uranus trine today, stimulating your desire to branch out even further. As you drop unhealthy expectations, you are more able to enjoy the moment. You’re open to experimenting with feelings and ideas, and your powers of attraction increase as you do. There can be a surprise attraction. Detaching yourself just a little helps you enjoy new experiences, and you gravitate toward unusual pastimes, people, and pleasures. You’re more inclined to follow your heart, and you express your affections through your sense of fun. You might treat yourself to some extra time to express and enjoy yourself or create something unique. A new style or other updates to your appearance or approach to the world may be part of today’s explorations.
GeminiYou continue to seek more comfort or stability today with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house for much of the day, dear Gemini. However, with a Venus-Uranus trine, you’ll want to do things a little differently. New experiences and feelings inspire you. You’re more accepting of any unusual or new feelings you’re experiencing now. Different approaches to emotions, feelings, intimacy, and family or household matters can be successful today. You might make design changes to your domestic world, or a purchase for family life or yourself can be refreshing. Getting rid of clutter in your home can be especially helpful for improving your outlook, as you can feel lighter and freer. One of the benefits of this Venus transit is the ability to temporarily detach yourself just enough that you can see another side to a situation. As a result, you might break ground on a tricky topic. As you free yourself from an emotional block, you can feel pleasantly surprised.
CancerThe Moon spends more time in your sign today, dear Cancer, stimulating your senses. You’re feeling wide-eyed, ready, and emotionally awake. Venus and Uranus harmonize today, further encouraging you to open up to new ideas, topics, and perhaps even a friendship. Personal appeal is particularly strong on a mental level today. Mental stimulation and variety are themes with this transit, and a pleasant surprise can be part of the picture. You’re simply not in the mood for monotony. A new attraction, craving, or interest can lead you to a fun discovery or an unconventional idea inspires you. As you gently push some boundaries in your conversations and exchanges, you’re likely to uncover much of interest. You could take pleasure in learning something new. Later today, the Moon moves out of your sign and into your solar second house, making it a good time to process and build upon your ideas.
LeoWhile part of you might want to take cover in the first part of the day, dear Leo, the Moon enters your sign later today and a Venus-Uranus aspect also encourages you to interact. There is excitement in the air, and a pleasant discovery or surprise can figure prominently. You’re likely to want to do (or feel) something out of the ordinary with these transits. You seem able to combine comfort with excitement successfully. You’re particularly willing to explore a new feeling, method, idea, or interest related to money, business, or work. Your intuition regarding business and financial matters is excellent, and you might enjoy a great buy or find. New or updated methods can improve your life. You’re attracted to unusual solutions and things, and this tendency can extend to your personal life, as well. The ability to detach from certain elements of your life can feel freeing and pleasant.
VirgoYou’re in the mood for something different today, dear Virgo, and your progressive approach is appealing. This can be a time for sudden or unusual attractions, experiences, and goodwill. Venus, currently transiting your sign, harmonizes with Uranus today, encouraging you to connect with ideas that inspire you or experience different pleasures and pastimes. You’re experimenting and enjoying the process. Opportunities emerge from breaking out of your routine, and this breath of fresh air inspires you to discover unusual methods, solutions, and experiences. People are attracted to your originality right now, particularly your intelligence, ideas, and beliefs. This transit further encourages your confidence in what you have to offer the world. A freer, breezier attitude or outlook leads to positive things. It’s a time for improvising and enjoying yourself, perhaps letting things flow and loosening up on a matter that has had you all wound up. Later today, the Moon heads into the sign behind yours for a couple of days, suggesting it’s time to rest and heal.
LibraToday can bring on some epiphanies about your feelings or affections, dear Libra. It’s a good time to explore your desires without going in too deep. There may be a release from an old obligation that makes you feel a little lighter. You can be feeling very open and spirited. While you’re more aware of the hidden elements of any particular situation, you’re less sensitive or private about these things today, making it easier to share. You might benefit from purging or letting go of negative attachments, which comes more easily. A Venus-Uranus aspect encourages you to break out of a pattern or rut. Because it occurs in your hidden sectors, this change or breakthrough may very well occur on an emotional level. As you detach yourself somewhat from a matter, you feel freer. It’s a good time for experimenting in a relationship. Much is going on behind the scenes or on the inside today. However, the Moon transits your public sector for much of the day, and this can bring attention to you. This is a time when you’re juggling many things.
ScorpioThe Moon spends much of the day in your spirit sector, dear Scorpio, and you’re seeking inspiration. Today’s Venus-Uranus transit further opens your mind and heart to new ideas, visions, and possibilities. You’re looking forward and willing to leave something you no longer need behind to help welcome fresh energy into your life. Liberation is possible in a meaningful way. As you drop unhealthy expectations of others and relationships, there’s far more enjoyment and spontaneity. Your exchanges can be exciting and even slightly unnerving, but in a good way, or you’re breathing life into current connections. It’s nice to be able to detach yourself just a little from a matter from time to time, and Venus-Uranus helps you do so. This transit wants you to experiment, think (and feel) outside of the box, or lose some self-consciousness and enjoy yourself more thoroughly as you do. You more easily turn the other cheek. Love and friendship can bring pleasant surprises. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, and you’re ready to define your goals and priorities.
SagittariusWhile you’ve been quite focused on getting things done and problems resolved, dear Sagittarius, you’re also craving something different and fun as Venus and Uranus harmonize. The desire for a change in your routine comes on pleasantly. It’s a time for moving forward with less baggage, and your approach or attitude demands something different. You may forget some of your troubles and enjoy yourself a little more than usual. This transit is favorable for social pleasures and inspiring interactions. The energy it brings is objective and detached yet friendly, helping you see things in a new way. A change of pace with your practical affairs, career, or health can be particularly refreshing and inspiring. You’re up for an adventure or new ideas, and you’re flexible enough to change your methods in the process. New opportunities can emerge, or your reputation gets a nice boost.
CapricornToday’s Venus-Uranus trine encourages your taste for something different, dear Capricorn, particularly when it comes to self-expression, personal enjoyment, entertainment, pleasures, and learning. Your spirit for adventure may show itself in your imagination, cravings, and dreams. You’d do well with a break from the routine or a bit of detachment from recent worries, concerns, and intensity. Attractions and desires may not be long-standing, but they can lead to interesting discoveries and ideas. Creativity can blossom. It’s quite natural to let go of recent frustrations and pressures, allowing you to move forward or move on. You’re more able to intuit things now, and while you’re usually a person who likes things well-defined and certain, you can benefit from some spontaneity today.
AquariusThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector for much of the day, dear Aquarius. While this is a rather moderate transit, you’re inclined to crave a little more from your life with Venus and Uranus in harmony. This transit helps bring lighter and freer energy to the day, inspiring you to let go of patterns that have been weighing you down. There can be pleasant changes on the homefront, or a sudden desire to bring up some changes to your immediate environment. A refreshing change of pace can figure strongly and pleasantly. Unusual feelings, interests, and sensations lead to new discoveries and perhaps opportunities. Fascinating observations can be notable now, and with some detachment, you can feel refreshed and wiser on a matter. Later today, the Moon enters your partnership sector, and you’re feeling a little more interactive and sociable.
PiscesThe Moon spends a good part of the day in your sector of joy, dear Pisces, and you’re seeking creative outlets. Today’s Venus-Uranus trine encourages you to open up and enjoy yourself. Communication channels present themselves, or you find new ways to connect that add an interesting layer to your exchanges. Different ways of expressing yourself can emerge, and they’re satisfying. Or, an unusual idea or method can lead to exciting discoveries, and perhaps some wonderful feelings. Either way, there’s a breath of fresh air that elevates you today. You’re especially attracted to communications or projects that are progressive, and fortunately, these are most favored today. Problem-solving is enhanced, especially when inspired by someone special. Freedom and acceptance are vital themes in your relationships today. There can be pleasant surprises in your conversations or news that leaves you feeling particularly positive.
