Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Moon heads into your resources sector today, dear Aries, and you may want to settle in and take things as they come today and tomorrow. With the current Venus transit, you are driven to experience more harmonious relations on the job or a pleasing environment in your daily life. As today advances, a Venus-Pluto transit can skew your view a little–you more readily see all of the flaws around you or feel overwhelmed. At the same time, you’re inclined to hide your difficulties from others. Sharing the load may be the answer. If that’s not possible, it makes sense to pull back and reduce some of the pressure on you to achieve your goals. Aim to work through things one step at a time.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your sign today, dear Taurus, and you tend to take the lead, expressing yourself in unique ways today and tomorrow. This transit animates your emotions and highlights your desire for interactivity. Personal urges tend to override most other concerns. As the day advances, you can be vulnerable to manipulation as Venus and Pluto head into a minor challenging aspect. Drawing upon some angst can be helpful in your creative endeavors, but there can be hiccups in your relationships or moodiness if things aren’t going your way. Aim to learn from your interactions, even if they are frustrating.
GeminiYou’re inclined to stick to the background of your life today with the Moon’s move into your privacy sector, dear Gemini, which can be helpful and healing. While this is a generally good time to improve relations with loved ones, you may have difficulty letting go of a dilemma or concern later today, so much so that your current happiness is compromised. There can be vague worries now, perhaps related to unfinished business, as Venus and Pluto head toward a minor challenging aspect. Aim to enjoy the positives of the present.
CancerThe Moon heads into your social sector for a stay of over two days, dear Cancer, and you’re focusing more and more on your happiness goals. With Venus currently transiting your communications sector, there’s more joy in connecting, in general. You have a greater need and ability to share your thoughts and feelings. Later today, watch for holding onto an idea or opinion too tightly, so much so that you forget how much fun you’re having! Venus and Pluto are heading into a minor challenging aspect, suggesting some tension in your interactions or worries dominating your time.
LeoThe Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, dear Leo, turning your attention to your responsibilities and ambitions. You’re more emotionally invested in your longer-term goals or reputation for over two days. With Venus currently transiting your resources sector, your practical world is in the spotlight. It’s a time for getting comfortable and developing or building your resources. Later today, however, it may be difficult to see your desires clearly as you may fixate on what you don’t have. Try not to focus on short-term goals that are unlikely to satisfy you once attained. The Moon’s transit helps you with this–the bigger picture or longer-term objectives are what matter most.
VirgoThe Moon heads into harmony with your sign today, dear Virgo, for a stay of over two days, and you can feel more in your element. You seek emotional refreshment through new experiences or ideas. While Venus in your sign tends to boost your confidence these days, it can be difficult to see beyond immediate desires and sensations later today with Venus in a minor challenging aspect to Pluto. If you’re not careful, this can lead to chasing short-term goals that are unlikely to satisfy.
LibraThe Moon heads into your solar eighth house for a stay of over two days, dear Libra, and you’re in a more reflective stage of the lunar month. With Venus in your solar twelfth house these days, too, you may be a little more tentative about feelings and even purchases because you instinctively sense that you’re not quite ready for brand new beginnings. Fortunately, it’s a rich time for sorting out your feelings. Later today, watch for a tendency to make poor emotional decisions. Try to look beyond immediate desires, as these may be misleading. As well, avoid putting too much weight in hunches or observations until you get more proof. With your ruler, Venus, in challenging aspect to Pluto now, perceptions may be more influenced by fears or worries than logic.
ScorpioThe Moon heads into your partnership sector for a stay of over two days, dear Scorpio, and you’re more relationship-oriented. A different perspective can be most valuable now. Later today, a minor challenging aspect between Venus and your ruler, Pluto, suggests you may look at situations through a suspicious or negative lens. Try not to make big decisions based on the feelings of the moment. Ideally, the tensions you experience now can motivate you to devise a good plan to tackle fears or vulnerable areas of your life.
SagittariusThe Moon moves into your work and health sector today, dear Sagittarius, and focusing on fixing problems and handling details can be satisfying today and tomorrow. You might devise ways to better organize or manage your daily affairs. With Venus in your solar tenth house these days, it’s a generally good time for your reputation or enjoyment of fulfilling your responsibilities. Accommodating others can help advance your goals. Venus here helps balance your approach to pursuing your goals. Later today, however, Venus heads into a minor challenging aspect with Pluto, and it can be a little difficult to be objective when assessing the value of things, situations, projects, and even yourself. Your viewpoint is more strongly affected by fears or strong emotions.
CapricornThe Moon moves into your sector of joy, self-expression, and entertainment today, dear Capricorn. Today and tomorrow, you seek creative ways to release tension and enjoy yourself. You have Venus on your side, harmonizing with your sign these days, which tends to smooth out your relationships. However, Venus approaches a minor but tense aspect with Pluto in your sign, and some stress is possible as you wrestle with the desire to explore on the one hand and a compulsion to oversee what’s happening around you. Be sure to spread your wings from time to time, or you’re at risk of stagnating. The chances are good that you can spare some time away from your tasks, especially if it lightens your mood.
AquariusThe Moon heads into your home and family sector today, dear Aquarius, and you prefer to stick with familiar, comfortable faces and places. It’s a fine time to check in with your feelings and needs for roots, stability, and security. With Venus in your solar eighth house these days, you’re in a generally favorable position to work through the more complicated, intricate areas of your relationships. You can also see more clearly into your desires and motivations and arrive at a far better understanding of yourself. While this is an excellent time to do some digging, you may take this too far later today due to a Venus-Pluto aspect. Try not to read so deeply into a situation that you lose objectivity.
PiscesThe Moon heads into your communications sector today, dear Pisces, and today and tomorrow can be active for thinking, talking, and problem-solving. Intellectualizing issues may be your way of avoiding an issue, so do watch for that. While this is a generally good time for enhancing and attracting others, some Venus-Pluto tension later today can point to minor but annoying difficulties if it catches you off guard. You have a strong desire to keep the peace these days, and this may go a little too far now, leaving you vulnerable to manipulation. It’s also a way of borrowing good energy from your future, as problems will grow if you sweep them under the carpet merely to enjoy the moment.
