Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith a Venus-Saturn aspect today, dear Aries, being grounded in reality is attractive. This energy encourages you to simplify, honor what’s already working for you, and enjoy a steady pace. You can be motivated to tackle tasks that were left unfinished or that you put off. It’s a good time to show your loyalty to someone–actions are speaking louder than words today. Your display of strength of character can open up opportunities to you, and good energy is with you for coming to the aid of a friend. You may gain an edge in a group, team, or with associates. Later today, something is up in the air. Something from your past, confusing dreams, or a feeling that you’ve missed a deadline or responsibility can nag at you. With the Sun and Neptune at odds, you could be feeling a little off or out of step because you’ve forgotten to take care of your needs for rest, spirituality, and replenishment of spirit, especially as this lack relates to your relationships.
TaurusThis is a day for feeling satisfied and empowered through a more realistic viewpoint of a financial or relationship matter, dear Taurus. Venus and Saturn harmonize, turning your attention to the pleasure of keeping things simple and natural. Realism and truth can help settle your emotions. Simplifying your life is integral to this, and it can get you feeling on track. Making lifestyle changes thrives now, mainly because your heart is in it! Expectations are more realistic, and it feels good to have perspective. However, later today, energies tend to raise uncertainties, and they may be a cue to take a break. If you feel overworked or underappreciated, take care of your affairs or put them on hold until you feel the pleasure of certainty return.
GeminiYou may very well delight in some stability and steadiness today with the influence of a Venus-Saturn transit, dear Gemini. You gravitate to someone wise and mature. Or, it’s a time for bonding with a person through your values or beliefs, connecting with a subject or guide, and enjoying a sense that you’re learning something valuable. Developing valuable skills is more appealing than innovative new techniques now. Partnerships are improving, and you can feel happily reinforced as you count on someone and/or they pull through for you. Stable and supportive relationships can help you reach your goals. Honoring the past or tradition can be rewarding. Your view of others is realistic today, and it can feel good to appreciate them as they are. However, later today, you can be on the fence about a matter. Getting comfortable with uncertainty may be your best bet, as becoming hung up on not knowing can be most distracting! Motivation levels could dip, but take heart that it’s temporary. It may only be a signal that you need a break to refresh yourself.
CancerStability is even more comforting than usual today, dear Cancer, with a Venus-Saturn transit. Getting organized and taking care of business can be enjoyable, and you’re likely to come up with great ideas about doing business, making money, or improving methods and efficiency. Be conservative and moderate in your approach in both work and play today for best results. Later today, you may feel the need to regroup, as restlessness or uncertainty are possible with a minor challenging aspect between the Sun and Neptune. It can especially be the case if you’ve been ignoring your needs for fantasy, imagination, and adventure in your life. It’s best not to make waves just for now with confidence taking a brief dip.
LeoYou can find the routine comforting, or getting something into order can be satisfying and even pleasurable today, dear Leo. It can feel good to have guidelines. Realities you might face now can lead to accepting things as they are, leading to better choices and decisions. Partnerships are a little more reinforcing, which helps with the Moon’s move into your partnership sector later today. In your relationships, you’re seeking stability and equilibrium. Later today, a Sun-Neptune transit can point to a need to make adjustments. It may be even better if you aim to observe before making edits. Energies active now can point to some teetering between wanting to keep things light and straightforward, and craving more depth and meaning from your interactions. As a result, there can be mixed signals and difficulty concentrating. Enthusiasm may take a dip, but this is temporary and perhaps only a message that you need to regroup and rest or take a break from overthinking.
VirgoActions or gestures go over well with a Venus-Saturn transit today, dear Virgo, and they’re preferable to words alone. It’s a good time to do something for the people you love and appreciate. You’re also likely to find it easier to concentrate and focus on making yourself happy. Simple pleasures can be more satisfying than usual with this aspect in play. Practical matters and tasks with clear guidelines, expectations, and goals fare the best. Socially and emotionally, you find great value in people who’ve been there for you or have otherwise already proved themselves. Sharing work with someone can be gratifying. Work you do around the home can also be useful and even pleasurable. As the day advances, however, it may be a better time to decompress and regroup. A partner’s behavior may serve to baffle you, or you can be craving a better connection with someone who might help you make some decisions and choices. As it stands, you can feel a little out of sync for the time being. It’s best to put overthinking on hold.
LibraWith your ruler, Venus, in harmony with Saturn today, dear Libra, you have a stronger sense of the future and a reverence for things that you expect to last. As a result, you’re not rushing things–or rushing into things! A little strategy goes a long way today. Feelings even out, and affections stabilize. Simple gestures and actions seem to work best, and conservative moves are in favor. The trick is feeling satisfied with working on projects that you already have going for you. While you’re in generally good shape, relationships may have you feeling a little off-center later today with a Sun-Neptune challenge. Try not to dwell on the past, even if buried resentments surface now. Fixation on problems won’t solve them unless the attitude you bring to the situation is forward-looking. Do what you can to clear your head.
ScorpioToday’s Venus-Saturn transit helps you simplify rather than branch out or innovate, dear Scorpio, giving you a welcome dose of steadying energy. You can make some nice progress around the home or with family. You more clearly appreciate the practical value of material things, focusing on those that will grow in value and importance. You are a little more discriminating and prudent with money and resources today, which helps you sort things out. Patience brings rewards! Later today, a Sun-Neptune transit could stir some restlessness until you acknowledge the need to check in with your intuition. All of a sudden, you may not feel as clear about your next step or how to wrap something up. If so, consider it temporary and a signal to slow down.
SagittariusYou’ll find it easier to focus on the practical side of matters in the first half of the day, dear Sagittarius, particularly those things that genuinely make you happy. What’s shiny and new is not as appealing as something tried and true. You might enjoy fulfilling your responsibilities more than usual, and you come into your own as you manage your expectations. It’s a time for conserving your energy and building your confidence and patience. Others seem more dependable than usual. Practical matters and communications projects are in good shape, and a step-by-step approach wins the most points. Later today, you might need to let go or back off a little. You may feel torn between your attention to your social life and personal or family needs. Or, inconsistencies or procrastination about matters in your home or personal life can wear you down, leaving you feeling vaguely guilty or restless. Consider ways to feed the need for imaginative or creative activities and give your mind a rest.
CapricornWith a harmonious Venus-Saturn transit in play today, it comes naturally to hold realistic expectations, dear Capricorn. Some level of comfort comes from learning the truth about a matter or coming to a more realistic perspective. Knowing the rules helps you plan. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them as they are, not as you wish they would be, is the key. You might get a real sense of how you can better use your resources. Work on creating your happiness rather than looking outside of yourself for others to bring you joy. Later today, a Sun-Neptune aspect is more wishy-washy. You can feel a little tired or disoriented if you’ve been neglecting your need to feed your imagination and spirit. Feeling overwhelmed is temporary, however. Take time to recollect yourself.
AquariusToday’s Venus-Saturn aspect helps you feel more empowered by facing realities and truths, dear Aquarius. Appreciating the things that are working well in your life can be the key to a steady, pleasant mood. Focusing on one particular task at a time is comforting and beneficial. Your energy reserves are healthy today, and you may want to take on projects that require concentration. It’s a good idea to take things one step at a time, and if you can stick with this attitude, it can take you places, even if it’s a slow ride! Later today, a Sun-Neptune aspect can point to timing that’s a little off if you’re feeling out of step with your intuition. Your attention may turn to an inconsistency that’s hard to shake. Consider ways to honor your needs for imagination, daydreaming, and spiritual sustenance, since ignoring them can lead to a distracted or restless state.
PiscesYou’re adopting a steady pace and stabilizing your emotions or a key area of your life, dear Pisces. You can find it more straightforward to rectify problems or clear up misunderstandings if needed today. There can be some helpful advice coming from behind the scenes or in your private world. You have a smart sense of priorities. You’re also more able to see value in what you already have rather than reaching for something new. You may be able to turn around a financial or emotional problem with a step-by-step, patient approach. Later today, motivation levels could dip a little. If so, it’s a signal to regroup and unlikely a sign of anything more than that.
