Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesSome things you’ve started or communicated recently might need some touching up, dear Aries, or you could be waiting for information that keeps you in limbo. Ideally, though, it gives you the chance to consider other angles that benefit you. The opportunity to feel lighter and freer arrives today as Venus heads toward a trine to Uranus. Monotony is uninspiring today–you need a change of pace! A more relaxed and creative approach to your life leads to improvements and opportunities. You might hook into an alternative method, recognize an opening, or leave a burden behind you. A new and improved approach both appeals to and benefits you. Bright ideas regarding practical matters, work, or money can figure strongly. Letting go of fear or detaching just a little can open up creativity and improve your health! Combining work and play comes naturally and works well for you. There can be an exciting find or purchase or the excitement of redesigning or reorganizing your things.
TaurusYou might discover the need to rework a project, task, or job, dear Taurus. While it’s not an ideal time for new endeavors, it’s an excellent time for researching health or developing job skills. You might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Venus is moving into harmony with Uranus, and your desire to branch out increases as the day advances. You’re open to experimenting with feelings and ideas, and your powers of attraction grow as you do. You’re more inclined to follow your heart, and you express your affections through your sense of fun. You might treat yourself to some extra time to express and enjoy yourself or create something unique. The Moon spends the day in your communications sector, further encouraging your desire to learn, connect, and share. Your willingness to detach yourself just enough to enjoy new experiences stands out today.
GeminiYou may need to handle a re-emerging problem or wait for an answer to a question that keeps you in limbo, dear Gemini. However, this can also be a great chance to catch up in other areas of life and rethink matters. You might aim to take it easy and avoid big decisions, if possible, and enjoy the good vibes of a Venus-Uranus transit. With this transit, new experiences and feelings inspire you. You’re more accepting of any unusual or different feelings you’re experiencing now. Alternative approaches to emotions, feelings, intimacy, and family or household matters can be refreshing and successful. Getting rid of clutter in your home can be especially helpful for improving your outlook, as you can feel lighter and freer. This influence helps you temporarily detach yourself just enough that you can see another side to a situation. As a result, you might break ground on a tricky topic. As you free yourself from an emotional block, you can feel pleasantly surprised.
CancerKeep things simple and definite for best results today, dear Cancer. There could be some stalling with household, family, learning, or transportation matters with Mercury retrograde these days. Still, the cycle can sway your thinking and change your mind about past decisions as it allows you to see things from a different perspective. Plus, you might find new ways of expressing yourself. A Venus-Uranus transit coming into play later today encourages you to open up to new ideas, topics, and perhaps even a friendship. Personal appeal is powerful on a mental level. A new attraction, craving, or interest can lead you to a fun discovery, or an unconventional idea inspires you. Mental stimulation and variety are themes, and a pleasant surprise can be part of the picture. As you gently push some boundaries in your conversations and exchanges, you will likely uncover much of interest. You could take pleasure in learning something new. The Moon in your sign today awakens your emotions and stimulates your senses.
LeoInconveniences or speed bumps may be more frequent these days with Mercury retrograde, dear Leo. However, because of them, you might discover new and improved ways of making connections, and you may not have considered these otherwise. The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, and while there is a retiring quality to you as the lunar cycle winds down, excitement is in the air. A Venus-Uranus aspect comes into play, encouraging you to interact. A pleasant discovery or surprise can figure prominently. You can be particularly willing to explore a new feeling, method, idea, or interest related to money, business, or work. You gravitate to unusual solutions and things.
VirgoYou could be looking at money matters in new ways, dear Virgo. Still, trying to push things forward is not likely a wise strategy with business and money right now. If a money or business matter is delayed, it’s time to find new ways to approach your life and make important discoveries as you do. It can be inconvenient but preferable to throwing yourself into new commitments or agreements that may lose their appeal or glamor later. A Venus-Uranus transit influences the day, especially strongly as the day advances, and you can find yourself in the mood for something different. It can be a time of sudden or unusual attractions, experiences, and goodwill. Transits encourage you to connect with ideas that inspire you or to experience different pleasures and pastimes. People are attracted to your originality right now, particularly your intelligence, thoughts, and beliefs. It’s a time for improvising and enjoying yourself, perhaps letting things flow and loosening up on a matter that has had you all wound up.
LibraThese days, you are looking at the world through different filters, and you’re likely to come up with some compelling inner revelations as a result, dear Libra. It may be challenging to communicate at times with Mercury retrograde in your sign, but there is no rush. Although you can feel inconvenienced sometimes, you gain from alerts to problem areas needing revision. While today can be a little erratic, as the day advances, there’s a refreshing spirit of freedom. There may be a release from an old obligation that makes you feel a little lighter. While you’re more aware of the hidden elements of any particular situation, you’re less sensitive or private about these things, making it easier to share. You might benefit from purging or letting go of negative attachments, which comes more easily. A Venus-Uranus aspect encourages you to break out of a pattern or rut. Because it occurs in your hidden sectors, this change or breakthrough may very well happen on an emotional level.
ScorpioWith Mercury retrograde in your privacy sector these days, dear Scorpio, you may look back much more than you look forward. Past mistakes can return for your attention. You may also experience some interruptions or a state of limbo on some issues. However, it’s a good time for redoing and refining work. Although producing some erratic energy, today’s transits are excellent at opening your mind and heart to new ideas, visions, and possibilities. You’re willing to leave something you no longer need behind to help welcome fresh energy into your life. Liberation is possible in a meaningful way. As you drop unhealthy expectations of others and relationships, there’s far more enjoyment and spontaneity. Your exchanges can be exciting and even slightly unnerving, but in a good way, or you’re breathing life into current connections. It’s nice to be able to detach yourself just a little from a matter from time to time.
SagittariusReminders of a past goal or dream can emerge, dear Sagittarius. You can benefit from some general introspection, especially regarding your long-term goals, group associations, or a particular friendship. Today is potentially a little disorienting at times, but with Venus heading into a pleasant aspect with progressive Uranus, you’re open to new ways of enjoying yourself. You might crave something different and fun. The desire for a change in your routine comes on pleasantly. It’s a time for moving forward with less baggage, and your approach or attitude demands something different. You may forget some of your troubles and enjoy yourself a little more than usual.
CapricornThere can be some delays or confusion regarding goals, career choices, and business projects these days, dear Capricorn. Past matters and tasks can be rehashed or recirculated. However, it’s a good time for refining long-term goals and career projects. A Venus-Uranus trine encourages your taste for something different today, particularly with self-expression, personal enjoyment, entertainment, pleasure, and learning. Your spirit for adventure may show itself in your imagination, cravings, and dreams. You would do well with a break from the routine or a bit of detachment from recent worries, concerns, and intensity.
AquariusIt may be best to take more care with presenting ideas, writing letters and emails, and detail work, dear Aquarius. You may not see the whole picture, but you might also find a new way of looking at a matter that brings creative results. A Venus-Uranus transit inspires you to let go of patterns that have weighed you down. There can be pleasant changes on the homefront or a sudden desire to bring up some updates to your immediate environment. A refreshing change of pace can figure strongly and pleasantly. With some detachment, you can feel wiser on a matter. Your intuitive feelers are at work, and you might make some fascinating observations. Still, the Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and these areas are in stronger emotional focus.
PiscesDecision-making is not straightforward right now, dear Pisces, as you search within for answers and need more time to arrive at conclusions. You might benefit from reviewing joint finances and debts or analyzing past decisions and projects. Freedom and acceptance are vital themes in your relationships today. The Moon spends today in your sector of joy, and you’re seeking creative outlets. Further, a Venus-Uranus trine encourages you to open up and enjoy yourself. Communication channels present themselves, or you find new ways to connect that add an interesting layer to your exchanges. Different ways of expressing yourself can also emerge, and they’re satisfying. Or, an unusual idea or method can lead to exciting discoveries, and perhaps some wonderful feelings. Either way, there’s a breath of fresh air that elevates you today. Problem-solving is enhanced, especially when inspired by someone special. There can be pleasant surprises in your conversations or news that leaves you feeling particularly positive.
