Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon spends the day in your sign, and life seems to be stirring up your emotions, as well as your initiative, dear Aries. Venus enters your work and health sector today for a transit that lasts until the 27th. You seek a better environment in your daily life in the weeks ahead, and you tend to do what you can to make your tasks and chores pleasant. Cooperating with others brings work rewards. It’s a useful cycle for bringing harmony to your daily life or more enjoyment in pursuing health and wellness. This can also be a time of better relationships with health professionals, employees, or co-workers, whichever may apply. Today, sorting out problems related to income can be necessary, as it can help clear the path for new beginnings in your relationships.
TaurusWith the Moon in your privacy sector today, you might aim to take things easy and focus on renewal, regeneration, and healing, dear Taurus. It can be hard to tear yourself away, but consider doing so if you’ve been consuming too much information. The coming weeks bring new energy to your love life or creative pursuits. Venus enters your solar fifth house today, and it will continue its transit here until the 27th. Your magnetism is strong and building. You tend to share your affection more freely and receive love and compliments more confidently. This Venus cycle supports you as you naturally attract who and what you want into your life. These days, you may have a powerful desire or need to pay more attention to details or to your work and health, but these things can sometimes interfere with your feelings of freedom and independence. This dilemma can be prominent today. Working on finding a balance can help you tremendously with turning over a new leaf.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Gemini, and you may feel a stronger desire to contribute, get involved, or belong. Venus heads into your solar fourth house today, where it will transit until the 27th. You have a real drive to experience more harmony, comfort, beauty, and balance in your home environment and family life in the coming weeks. Safety, prosperity, and familiarity seem to drive your love life, spending habits, and pastimes or pleasures. If you need to repair or refresh relations with family, it’s an excellent time for doing so. Real estate, domestic, and comfort matters can be favorable now. Familiarity and intimacy appeal in your love life during this cycle. It’s not a time when your heart is on your sleeve–some caution with love, the pursuit of pleasure, and money is common with this cycle. Today, with the Sun quincunx Uranus, you may be holding onto something from the past that’s taking up psychic space–space you might instead reserve for allowing something new and happy to enter your life.
CancerVenus moves into the communications house of your solar chart today, dear Cancer, bringing a more lively spirit to your life in the coming weeks. Venus will transit here until the 27th, and communication becomes integral to your feelings of being loved and appreciated. You present your ideas and comments with charm and ease during this cycle. Making social connections and sharing your thoughts come more smoothly and naturally. You may thoroughly enjoy your studies, games, learning, and connecting during this period. Others might find you more chatty and friendly. Today, you may be feeling conflicted about whether to move out of your comfort zone or stick with who and what you know. This can give you pause, but as the day advances, you enjoy stronger conviction or purpose. The need to perform, accomplish, or manage can motivate you.
LeoYou’ve recently awakened to a stronger desire to reach out, learn, connect, and share your ideas, dear Leo. Today, much of this can feel like a big distraction, however. You may need to compartmentalize rather than attempting to juggle everything you want to accomplish. Also today, Venus leaves your sign, and in the weeks ahead, the focus is on building your resources. Attracting the right things seems easy and natural during this transit that lasts until the 27th. Getting along well with others can be one way to boost your business or income. There can be more relaxing moments to enjoy, explore, or develop your talents. You might also more fully appreciate activities that soothe, comfort, and boost your confidence. Money matters can improve in the weeks ahead, particularly with a patient approach. You gravitate toward familiar, comfortable people and connections. Comfort foods or tried-and-true pastimes and pleasures can be in focus more than usual.
VirgoThere is a tendency to feel a little torn between the promise of life experience and the appeal of getting down to business today, dear Virgo. However, even with some chaotic energy around you in the first half of the day, you can be quite determined to get on with it as the day advances. Also today, Venus moves into your sign and will stick around until the 27th. In the past few weeks with Venus in your privacy sector, feelings may have been kept private or at bay. You’re now clearer about your feelings. You may feel that you’re beginning a new cycle in love. During this booster transit, you more easily attract what you want into your life, although your affections may feel quite urgent at times. Others more readily appreciate you or notice your appeal. There is a stronger focus on pleasure and love in your life in the weeks ahead. It’s an excellent period for employing your charms, personal flair, and personality, in general, to get a little more out of life. Money matters might also improve.
LibraWatch for a tendency to put yourself on the defensive today, dear Libra, as this will not help your case. This is an excellent day, however, for learning something new. Your ruling planet, Venus, moves into your solar twelfth house for a stay until the 27th. This transit encourages spending more time to yourself, going under the radar in some areas of life, and sorting out or processing your feelings. Healing activities can be enormously appealing and beneficial in the weeks ahead. External or material achievement bumps down on your priorities list–your private life becomes far more interesting! Mind you, it may not be until October 27th (when Venus enters your sign) that you gain more clarity in love. You could be somewhat tentative about your affections and even purchases until then. You may instinctively sense that you’re not quite ready for brand new beginnings, and that’s just fine for now–all in due time! You’re bound to get quite cozy with your inner world in the weeks ahead.
ScorpioVenus moves into your social sector today, sweetening or smoothing out your social life, dear Scorpio. The weeks ahead (until the 27th) favor connecting with friends, existing or new. You’re ready to accommodate, change, and grow in your interactions, and you’re far less likely to stick with old patterns that are no longer performing. The weeks ahead can also be a good time for business income. The focus is on equality and positive energy with love, and friends are likely to be very supportive. The urge to connect, contribute, share, or soak up ideas and inspiration from others increases. Your opportunities, tastes, and interests can expand, and others tend to seek you out. In the first half of today, someone can throw you off-center with their actions, remind you of the past, or leave you feeling insecure. It’s a temporary issue, so try not to take things to heart. Today’s Moon transit stimulates your need to get organized and handle your daily affairs.
SagittariusVenus moves into your solar tenth house today, dear Sagittarius, and you’re in perfect shape for smoothing over relationships with a boss, teacher, parent, or the public in the weeks ahead. Until the 27th, your cooperation with others has its share of rewards. This transit particularly favors your public image and professional endeavors and can be responsible for a boost in your reputation. More importantly, you might take more pleasure in what you do, setting goals, and taking on or fulfilling your responsibilities. There can be an increase in the success or satisfaction of your creative pursuits. Rewards, awards, and changes in relationship status can sometimes happen with this yearly transit. Today, worries about work can seep into your personal or social life, however, and it can be difficult to enjoy yourself as a result. If you can find a way to enjoy a creative escape from stress, you’ll be in far better shape.
CapricornYou’re likely to enjoy new ideas and concepts that inspire you in the weeks ahead, dear Capricorn, with Venus transiting your solar ninth house until the 27th. In some ways, you might feel that your relationships or affections are emerging into the light. You’re ready to embrace the moment and express or act upon your affections. This position of Venus tends to highlight and enhance your naturally attractive qualities. You are looking for unique experiences and ideas. You have a greater love of learning and sharing, and you gravitate toward people with whom you share similar beliefs or ideals. You crave a sense of growth and improvement in your relationships. Today, adjustments may be necessary for dealing with a boss, parent, or family member, but doing so helps you start fresh.
AquariusVenus moves into your solar eighth house for a stay until the 27th, dear Aquarius. In the weeks ahead, your relationships may be more complex and complicated. Deeper, more profound relationships are in favor, however, and it’s a fine time to gain a better understanding of yourself and your needs. Resolving differences can be in focus and positive. Backing or support may be easier to come by, or you might arrive at an attractive agreement during this cycle. You tend to seem more depth or passion in your relationships, projects, personal interests, or pleasures. It’s also a good time to get the most out of others’ talents and resources. Concerns about family or your insecurities can prevent you from straying too far from your routine today, yet you instinctively need to get away from it all. Working on satisfying your needs for both familiarity and exploration helps clear the path for new beginnings.
PiscesToday, the Moon stimulates your need for more comfort and familiarity than usual, dear Pisces. Venus moves into your partnership sector for a stay until the 27th. This transit tends to enhance your social life and one-to-one relationships. It’s a healthy cycle for attracting and improving close connections. Benefits can come through partnering, counseling, or negotiating. You’re inclined to give more special attention to your relationships, restoring balance and harmony. Others are more likely to help and support you. In turn, your sense of what people need is strong. Today, try not to allow misunderstandings or discrepancies negatively impact your day. Still, if a tricky matter does surface, don’t shy away from it altogether, or you are likely to meet it again in the future in a bigger way since problems have a way of accumulating.
