Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesNot everything comes together today, dear Aries, but you’re on the right track with incoming news or current projects. There can be mixed signals to decipher, and you may also be dealing with problems managing your work-life balance. It makes sense to slow down and stall decision-making if possible until you’re clearer about others and your own needs. People in your life may be frustrated with your divided attention today, but then again, you may not find it easy to understand them in spots. This is temporary. A Mercury-Node aspect helps put you in a good position to learn something exciting or valuable about a friendship or special project. You may very well feel far more in sync than usual with a partner or special friend through a shared idea or communication later today.
TaurusA minor challenging aspect between Venus and Jupiter today can play with our expectations and lead to some off timing, dear Taurus. You might keep others at arm’s length, or attempts to get close to others can end up turning you off or stirring up feelings of restlessness. It’s not the perfect day for intimacy, as people around you are generally difficult to please, including yourself! Aim to take things slowly as you sort out what you truly want, and give others space to do the same for best results. Look for opportunities to channel your energy into projects that could use some special attention. In fact, there’s good energy for mental focus today. You might get the chance to advance toward your goals or connect with the right people/information in support of your income, financial state, or current business interests. Helpful clarifications related to work or health might arrive.
GeminiYour communication skills are in generally fine form these days with Venus in your solar third house, dear Gemini. There can be rewarding conversations and other communications. People could find your ideas and style of expression especially attractive. Today, there can be some problems getting your message across, but it’s temporary. It may be best to take extra care to make yourself clear. While handling unfinished business might not seem glamorous right now, it can help to reduce guilt/stress levels that come from the nagging feeling that you have things left to do. You can feel in limbo or confused by mixed signals. However, you might make connections to people or information that help you push your personal plans forward. A sense that you can grow through creative or romantic pursuits is with you.
CancerVenus in your solar second house these days brings more enjoyment of what you have, dear Cancer. You might accumulate new possessions or beautify existing ones. Whims can take hold today, however, as Venus and Jupiter form an awkward aspect. If you feel unsettled, it’s a good idea to try to get in touch with what’s truly bothering you. A difference in values with someone can be an issue, and there can be difficulties relating to others in general, largely due to exaggeration or sensitivity. Family projects or discussions can leave you feeling positive and hopeful. You get the sense that you can make a whole lot of progress. Communications may very well lead to important discoveries about yourself and the people you love today.
LeoWith Venus in your sign these days, dear Leo, your desires are immediate and strong. Today, they may not reflect what’s in your heart as Venus forms a quincunx to Jupiter. In fact, on some level, your desires may be leading you astray if you’re avoiding things or not quite ready to see what’s in your heart. It makes sense to wait out the big choices if it’s possible now. Giving yourself some room to explore and discover makes sense. Even so, your mind is quite sharp now, and you may want to take advantage by doing something productive. Keep your ear to the ground as there can be the inspiration for new ideas, dreams, and goals incoming through news you hear or people you meet today. The Moon’s move into Sagittarius later today brings you out of your shell and finds you in a more expressive, interactive mood.
VirgoEnergies are just a little tricky for relationships today, dear Virgo. You could find yourself at cross purposes with one another, and it might not be easy to reach a happy resolution or compromise. Part of this could be that you are unsure whether you want to pursue something or let people come to you. You can be confused about alternatives. Striving to make peace with the past is most useful these days, but it’s challenging to see things clearly just for now. Venus forms an awkward aspect to Jupiter in your outgoing solar fifth house, highlighting a discrepancy between two strong drives. One drive is the need to process and take things easy, and the other is the desire to push forward and enjoy yourself more spontaneously. Aim to go slow and figure out what’s in your heart before taking concrete action. However, business or career-related news and ideas can be most helpful and valuable today.
LibraYour desire for variety is strong, dear Libra, but a good part of your wants to hide yourself away or keep your observations to yourself. At the root of this is Venus and Jupiter at odds with one another. Interactions can be a little off, or timing is wrong now. There can be some doubts or concerns that prevent you from interacting naturally with friends or associates. This transit is only minorly challenging, but you can temporarily feel divided, uncertain about someone’s feelings, or in limbo. With so many things, and possibly people, vying for your attention, it’s not exceptionally easy to know your next step. However, slowing down makes sense until you reorient yourself. Fortunately, there can be news or incoming information about courses and opportunities that are likely to benefit you.
ScorpioWith a Venus-Jupiter minor challenging aspect today, dear Scorpio, a career, public, life direction, or reputation matter could throw you a little off-center. Part of you wants to state your case, and another part would prefer to let things go. Promises made today may not transpire. You might attract people to you who take you for granted, and you may need to establish boundaries as a result. If you feel a little out of balance, your best bet is to slow down and avoid acting on impulses. Some procrastination or uncertainty about your next step is possible just for now. A conversation about personal issues, a secret, or the past can be significant and perhaps even quite liberating. Later today, the Moon moves out of your sign and into your resources sector, turning your attention to matters of comfort and routine as you seek some predictability.
SagittariusIt’s not always easy to be certain about what you want today, dear Sagittarius, or you could fixate on something you think you want but then discover that it’s really not the answer to your problems. Generally speaking, you’re sharing your affections more liberally these days and you’re looking forward. Today, there can be some frustration with differences in values. You can give off a standoffish vibe, or you could be toying with money or things that you think will make you feel better. Restlessness is likely until you reorient yourself. Still, you might stumble upon information or have a chance connection with someone that gives you more clarity in the relationship department. Later today, the Moon moves into your sign and pulls you out of your shell. This transit can bring a pleasant rush of energy to your life and a desire to begin anew or enjoy a new experience. Emotions are more transparent than they have been in recent days.
CapricornThese days are good for sharing yourself or enjoying in-depth activities, dear Capricorn. However, today, there can be some hesitation to give of yourself as you’re sensitive to anything that feels like others are impinging upon your freedom. Or, confusion about boundaries in a relationship can be prominent. Affections can be intense one minute, and then they cool down the next. Whether to go after what you want or see if it comes to you naturally can be a dilemma today. Even so, a Mercury-North Node influence today helps connect you with people or information that further your career or health goals. This can be a time for gaining increased clarity about a life-path goal, project, or job that feels like growth and improvement.
AquariusIt’s not straightforward to see things for what they are or for their value today, dear Aquarius. There can be competing feelings when it comes to the need for privacy and togetherness. It may be best to aim to discern between feelings coming from a place of insecurity and those that come from the heart. Something could be leading to a dead-end, which means you should investigate alternatives. However, be careful not to jump into something due to current frustrations that you may one day regret. It’s better to take things easy or one step at a time. Still, it’s a fine time to keep the lines of communication open, as there can be valuable things to learn. There can be an exciting connection made with information or a person that illuminates your way on a creative or romantic pursuit.
PiscesIt’s not as easy to stick to routines today, dear Pisces. Vague restlessness can take hold, and your attention may be divided. As well, it may be difficult to please a friend right now, and you can’t be everything to everyone. There can be competing energies pitting your social life or leisure time against chores and duties. Nevertheless, connections can be made today that help further home and family-related goals, and links can be with people or information that point you in the right direction. You recognize the practical benefits of focusing on the future. The Moon moves to the top of your solar chart later today, and paying more attention to rules, objectives, and structures comes more naturally.
