Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your career and reputation sector for a couple of days, dear Aries, encouraging your ambitions. However, productivity can be a little tricky in spots today, as Mercury and Venus connect. Sticking to a particular idea or path without distraction is challenging under this influence. It can also point to the mixing of business with social matters in distracting ways. Restlessness might alternatively be the result of differing tastes and interests that are challenging to integrate. It may be that you need to take a break from a current endeavor and then return to it later when you feel fresher. Nevertheless, Venus forms a trine to Pluto, motivating you to take something to a new level. If you can focus, you’re in fabulous shape. Getting to the bottom of a matter can be satisfying as it puts an end to recent uncertainty, and a game plan can emerge. There can also be empowering energy for work matters, finances, and one-on-one relationships. Efforts to improve your daily routines, habits, and health support advancement and the attainment of your larger goals.
TaurusIn most ways, the day plays in your favor, dear Taurus, and your best bet is to limit distractions. It can be a small challenge to buckle down and get things done, but once you do, you’re in great shape. Dissatisfaction has a way of making itself known and might pull your attention away from your duties. You may need a bit of emotional space, perhaps a little extra time to process a message or your feelings about a matter before committing your full attention to something. Your feelings may seem to muddy the picture, but in truth, they’re helping you out since an overly intellectual or logical take on a situation doesn’t always do you favors. You might make connections or re-connections that can be quite rewarding or possibly even profitable as Venus harmonizes with Pluto. This is a time for demonstrating your commitment and expressing your confidence in both yourself and someone special. People are magnetically drawn to you today. Sharing ideas and beliefs can be powerful, possibly strengthening a bond. Someone might introduce you to deeper levels of your own personality or interesting ideas, beliefs, lifestyles, and perspectives. Love interests or partners are intrigued or receptive right now.
GeminiMercury and Venus form a minor challenging aspect today, dear Gemini, and while the day is energizing overall, there can be small problems that seem to slow you down or distract you. There can be some question of whether you feel appreciated or valued by others. Ask yourself whether you’re concentrating so much on the differences and problem areas that you’re overlooking opportunities. Today’s Venus-Pluto transit helps boost your personal life. Relationships with loved ones can be a significant motivator for you to make positive changes. Favored most today are activities that help you build, recycle, and transform. You might decide to convert a project or situation from mediocre to thriving, particularly in a close relationship or around the home. You might discover creative ways to interact with the people you spend your time with. Intensity and closeness in your relationships may be realized today, even in the smallest of ways.
CancerToday’s energies are a little scattered in spots, dear Cancer, but if you can manage to focus, you can break ground. As unproductive as it may seem, it’s a good time to explore possibilities. Sometimes a little bit of discomfort can get you to a good position, such as a decision or a solution to a problem. Today might work in this way, where you wrestle with some indecision and play around with how you feel about a matter, taking you to a new plan or mission. Studies, personal interests, and projects can be a wonderful focus as Venus harmonizes with Pluto. They may even transform your life in key ways. Talking with someone who shares similar values can be rewarding. It’s a time for going the extra mile for special people and projects. A conversation can enhance a relationship, or a relationship might develop from a conversation.
LeoConsider that messages can very easily come across somewhat poorly in spots today, dear Leo. Misunderstandings are likely, so that if you experience a disconnect, try not to make big decisions based only on it. Little problems have a way of making themselves known today, and while a bit of a distraction or annoyance, it can be ultimately helpful to know about problems before they grow bigger than life. Watch for a tendency to want to spend away your troubles, but if you can use a little pampering or a break from the routine and you can manage such a break, then this may be the right time to treat yourself. Today’s Venus-Pluto aspect is wonderful for boosting your problem-solving skills. If you need to do editing work or revamp something, such as a budget or creative plan, this is a strong time for doing so. You can feel especially passionate about your job, business, personal possessions, or something that you’re building. It’s a time to build and encourage a sense of purpose by setting goals and drawing up plans to meet them. If you need to pare down, this is a good time to recognize which areas of life could use some reinvention.
VirgoThe Moon moves into your solar fifth house for a couple of days, dear Virgo. It has a pleasant time in your entertainment, creativity, and romance sector, which can boost your mood. Consider that while you’re more inclined to reach out and connect, there is a tendency for some things to get lost in the translation. Your feelings and thoughts on a matter can be difficult to understand, or they’re clashing, and this can lead to indecision. As a result, it can be difficult getting yourself going on any particular thing, primarily due to distractions and emotional states. However, once you do focus and concentrate, you can be raring to go. A creative pursuit can capture your interest, and you can be excited about taking it to a new level. Understanding something or someone can be especially engaging now. Or, you might pour extra energy and love into a relationship, romantic pursuit, or creative project. It’s a fine time to make a good impression.
LibraThe Moon moves to the bottom of your solar chart now, dear Libra, encouraging special attention to your needs for a bit of nurture or home and family. You can still feel a little restless or discontented as Mercury and Venus form a minor challenging aspect. It can be hard to discern what you’re craving or whether or not to go forward with a plan. There can be a disconnect between your feelings about a matter and what’s most logical. As you sort things out, you can feel slightly off or distracted. However, a beautiful Venus-Pluto trine boosts your emotional state and family life. Focusing on home and family projects can be extremely rewarding. Getting rid of unnecessary material things can be helpful, and so can weeding out problematic thinking or attitudes that are not doing you any favors. You might discover deeper feelings and desires, and getting in better touch with yourself can be exciting. You may be playing detective today with nice results! It’s a time of discovering truths, which can lead to important changes and a sense of personal empowerment.
ScorpioYou could be puzzling over a message or communication that temporarily throws you off-center today, dear Scorpio. Your feelings can be up and down if you pay too much attention to others’ responses. In order to send out a positive message that receives positive attention, your best bet may be to get in touch with your needs and desires, but not to be in a hurry to arrive at a conclusion since emotions and logic may have different messages for you just for the time being. Vow to spend a little more time playing with alternatives. Fortunately, a Venus-Pluto trine is also active today, and it’s powerful for personal transformation through current projects, friendships, and connections. This can be a time for discovering (or rediscovering) people and projects you love. A boost in your social life or with your projects and interests can happen now. You’re in good shape for persuasion, connection, and motivation. You tend to draw people, situations, or things to you, and a good part of your appeal lies in your ideas, communication style, and unique insight.
SagittariusYou may need to put something out of your mind temporarily so that you can come back to it at a later time with fresh energy, dear Sagittarius. Thoughts, logic, and needs seem to be all over the place and not very much in agreement so that a compromise is something you’ll be striving for now. You are a little more sensitive to imbalances in your life, especially with the messages you receive today. It may be hard to truly throw yourself into something or to get started on an endeavor. However, once you can manage to focus, you’ll find that you’re raring to go! A Venus-Pluto aspect is helpful for pouring energy and love into your work, business, making money, or something you’re building. Reinventing a project can figure strongly now. When you love what you do, it shows in the final product. You can feel quite motivated to get your life into better order or to learn a new trade. It can be quite enjoyable to take steps toward a cherished goal.
CapricornOverall, the day is good for social connections, dear Capricorn, but there can be some issues with communicating what you mean. If there’s a bit of awkwardness or some miscommunication, aim to take it in stride. It may be best to reevaluate whether it’s essential to be understood on a matter before persistently pursuing it. It becomes easier to turn your attention to bigger and more significant concerns as you go along today as Venus harmonizes with Pluto. Personal magnetism is powerful. A passionate pursuit or interest can be transformative and rewarding, perhaps motivating you to tidy up your affairs. You’re in great shape for persuading and connecting with others in meaningful, beneficial ways. You can be tempted to reach out beyond your normal bounds and enjoy different perspectives. Fascination with different ideas and people can figure strongly now. Teaching, guiding, sharing, leading, or learning can be fun and in focus. A new channel for communicating or expressing yourself could open up. You might offer or receive some good advice, or something you hear about turns your attention in a positive direction.
AquariusYou’re getting in better touch with your needs, particularly from career and ambitions or performance, dear Aquarius. Today, there can be some discontent or confusion due to a misunderstanding. People around you may seem hard to please, or a bit of chaos is a reflection of your own unrest. You may be tempted to overindulge or slack off just until you feel more decided or sure of yourself. Consider your feelings, but try not to let them distract you from your goals for very long. A Venus-Pluto trine today helps you put more energy and love into your private life, an intimate relationship, research, or investigation, and it’s rewarding. Venus in your intimacy sector harmonizes with Pluto in your privacy zone, energizing and boosting your inner world, emotional life, and perceptions. There are benefits to digging a little more deeply into a matter now. It’s also a powerful time for observation as you stand to gain meaningful insights into a person, situation — or your own desires. Private conversations, understanding, and connections are fortunate now.
PiscesYou could find yourself somewhat distracted in spots today, dear Pisces. Social ups and downs might need managing, and you may want to watch for hypersensitivity to others’ opinions of you or differences of opinion, in general, which you may take personally now. Dissatisfaction in relationships can stimulate restlessness if you’re not dealing with the true source. Doublecheck that miscommunication isn’t making life more difficult than it needs to be now. Fortunately, a Venus-Pluto aspect also influences the day, pointing you to a passion project or relationship that can help motivate you to make essential changes. Support or inspiration from special people in your life can be fantastic. This transit is a grounding but also very growth-oriented energy that keeps you moving forward, slowly but surely, with an end goal in mind. It can also be a successful time for quitting a bad habit–the key seems to be to include someone you trust in your plans. You’ll do better focusing on getting something straight rather than veering off course.
