Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA Venus-Uranus square influencing the first half of the day brings a somewhat unpredictable or disorienting theme, dear Aries, mainly because it upsets the routine. There can be some unexpected events in your relationships, social life, or regarding money and business matters, which can throw you off temporarily and adversely affect timing. Sudden attractions to people, material things, or experiences may emerge today, and these can delight you or disturb you, depending on your perspective! This transit may feel more disruptive if you’ve been ignoring needs to make interesting changes in your life. It’s better not to commit to anything or anyone with your feelings in a state of rapid flux. As the day advances, the Moon heads into your work and health sector. A different view of your money or possessions is emerging, and it’s changing your daily routines or work.
TaurusThe Moon continues its transit of your solar fourth house for part of the day, dear Taurus, and you’re more focused than usual on your personal life, family, or home. While you’re craving a stronger sense of security now, a Venus-Uranus transit influencing the first half of the day is somewhat destabilizing. Uranus in your sign highlights your independent side. Still, Venus is currently transiting a cozy area of your chart, and you have a stronger desire for comfortable and familiar situations. Today, you can experience a real clash between wanting to be comfortable and feeling stifled by closeness or bored with the usual. It can also be a day of interruptions and changes of plans, particularly in the home, which can irritate but help establish your priorities. As the day advances, it feels more natural to adapt to changes or to make them willingly. You get into a more playful mood with the Moon’s move into Virgo and your joy and pleasure sector.
GeminiWith a Venus-Uranus square influencing the first half of the day, dear Gemini, various things may go awry, mainly related to communications and transportation. It may not be easy to focus or center yourself, and there can be changes of schedule that throw you a bit off course. You enjoy conversing and connecting these days with Venus in your solar third house, more so than usual, but today you can be unsure how close you want to get, or you could feel disconnected and misunderstood. Recognize the need for a little more freedom and space so that you find ways to attain these things without too much drama. As the day advances, the Moon moves into your solar fourth house, and there is good energy for winding down. It’s a strong time for activities that boost your feelings of comfort, security, and inner wellness.
CancerThe Moon continuing its transit of your solar second house for the first part of the day stimulates your desire for predictability and steadiness, dear Cancer. However, a Venus-Uranus transit can throw you a bit off-center by a money or ownership matter, or you can feel pulled out of your comfort zone by unexpected events. Instead, this influence can pull up an inner conflict between wanting to play it safe and experimenting with something new. Interruptions or changes in schedule can figure strongly now, but they probably shouldn’t be taken to heart. If the urge to buy something comes up suddenly, try to wait it out, because your appetite for new things can fade almost as quickly as it comes on, and may only be about discontent. You might only need a little change in your routine. The Moon enters your communications sector later today, and there can be a helpful focus on connecting, communicating, and learning.
LeoA Venus-Uranus aspect influencing the first half of the day can leave some things up in the air, dear Leo. There may be conflicts with others, or you need to deal with unreliable or unavailable people, and schedules are off. Alternatively, you experience this aspect as an internal conflict, and you might see-saw between wanting to be close to someone and craving your independence. The morning requires flexibility and a strong sense of self. Consider that people are absorbed in their issues, and if you don’t worry about what that might mean or take it too seriously, you may very well enjoy the space and freedom that this affords you to do your own thing. As the day advances, it feels easier to center yourself. It’s a good time for getting centered, establishing priorities, and settling down. Patience can help you achieve your goals with the Moon’s move into your solar second house. As your goals change, so do your habits.
VirgoYou tend to crave a change of pace or some other form of emotional refreshment today, dear Virgo. Venus forms a hard angle to Uranus, shaking things up such that there can be some missed connections or changes of schedule in the first half of the day. Venus is in your private, subconscious sector, encouraging an inward focus. However, Uranus is prodding you to learn new things, share your ideas, and seek different pleasures. This conflict can play out on an internal level, or external events can bring it on. While you may be thrown off-center by this transit, things that surface unpredictably today may very well need a release and can also help stimulate necessary changes or new beginnings. The Moon moves into your sign later today, and your heart tends to rule your head. Your sensitivity, psychic ability, imagination, and intuition heighten.
LibraA Venus-Uranus square shakes things up in the first half of the day, dear Libra, enforcing changes for which you may not have prepared. Following a routine, instructions, or a schedule can prove difficult. Social interactions can be confusing, as surprising feelings can emerge and throw you for a loop. If plans change, consider that freed up time could lead to positive things. While desires today may seem to come from out of the blue, they may lead to new perspectives and ideas that serve you well in the future. It just may not be wise to act upon them at the moment as they can be fleeting. The Moon heads into your solar twelfth house later today, pointing to some need to withdraw or take extra time to process, think, decide, and act. Unresolved matters from the past can resurface, allowing you to better understand where you are now.
ScorpioFor some of the day, the Moon continues to transit your solar tenth house, dear Scorpio, encouraging you to seek out some order and direction in your life. However, the morning’s energies may not cooperate well with you. Venus forms a hard angle to erratic Uranus, and there can be some mixed feelings or tension with others, depending on whether this aspect plays out internally or externally. At the heart of this, you may need a change of pace, and the sooner you identify this need and work with it, the better. You may not agree with someone on the direction you’re heading, but perhaps you need some space to think things through. Keep your personal life in its place so that it doesn’t come to the attention of others. You might try to use the tension of today’s Venus-Uranus square positively to break free from a bad habit or out of a negative rut. The Moon heads into your sector of friendship, hopes, and wishes later today, and you’re focusing on others or your place in the community. You’re inclined to put your social life and happiness goals at the top of your list right now.
SagittariusThe Moon continues its transit of your spirited ninth house, dear Sagittarius, exciting your senses and stimulating the need for a change of pace. A destabilizing Venus-Uranus transit influences the first half of the day, and you may get more of this than you bargained for! At the heart of this influence is the need to approach people and pleasures in different ways. Or, switching up your routine can lead to new feelings. However, if you do not recognize this need, it can surface in unexpected ways. Alternatively, you may face changes in plans and schedules that temporarily throw you off course. The good news is that there’s likely a learning experience involved as you head in a slightly different direction. Through upset schedules or interruptions, you can discover a new approach or method that can quite effectively pull you out of a rut or a mindless habit. Later today, the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart, and it’s easier to keep everything in a straight line.
CapricornInfluencing the first half of the day is a hard aspect between Venus and unpredictable Uranus, dear Capricorn. This transit can point to conflicting feelings as you wrestle with a desire to harmonize and a simultaneous need for independence. You may crave more depth in a relationship or project on the one hand, but on the other, you’re concerned about the possibility of having to follow others’ schedules or agendas. You may need to entertain some unusual ideas to stretch your mind out of a rut. Feeling a bit more detached from a situation may motivate you to make a break or a change. However, watch for whims since desires can come on suddenly, but they’re very likely to be fleeting, and it may be better to wait things out until you’re certain of what you want. The Moon heads into your spirited ninth house later today, exciting your senses and stimulating the need for a change of pace.
AquariusThe day is relationship-focused for you, dear Aquarius, but potentially problematic for your interactions and connections in the first half of the day. Venus is in hard aspect to Uranus, and since Venus is currently camping out in your partnership sector, you may not be able to rely or lean on someone today. Some detachment in relationships now can be healthy, as it allows you a bit of space to do your own thing and more fully appreciate what you have. When others crowd you to the point that you can’t process your feelings for them, some emotional space helps you gain perspective. Or, this transit can find you dealing with changes of heart or schedules related to your home life, leading to new experiences and ideas. While you enjoy change if it means improvement and progress, you take some time to adjust to these things if they’re brought upon suddenly. As such, it’s best to recognize the need to shake up the routine and make the changes yourself. The Moon heads into your intimacy sector later today, and it becomes easier to center yourself and focus on something absorbing.
PiscesThe Moon continues its transit of your work and health sector for part of the day, dear Pisces, and you tend to gravitate toward sorting out problems. While a sense of order would be ideal for these purposes, a Venus-Uranus square can upset schedules in the first half of the day. This transit tends to stir up tension or produce surprises. People may be hard to pin down, or there can be so many distractions and interruptions that it’s hard to hear yourself think. Through this, it’s your attitude that counts most. Look for the interesting detours that result from unexpected events today for best results–they can lead to fantastic new ideas. With the Moon’s move into your solar seventh house later today, you seek others’ perspectives. Understanding is a beautiful form of support.
