Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesWith Venus in your solar eighth house these days, dear Aries, love relationships can be exciting or self-discovery profound. Early today, Venus opposes Uranus, and there can be a changeable or restless quality to these matters. There may be a twist of sorts that keeps you on your toes, or new desires and interests take hold. Insight into your finances or something in your intimate, inner life can happen now. Seek ways to free yourself from compulsive behavior that has been holding you back, but aim to avoid acting out or rebelling and reacting instead of listening to your heart. Do watch for making more of a fuss than necessary, aiming to see where you can make positive changes and improvements. Disruptions can point to a need to throw away old attitudes and habits limiting you or holding you back from growing. Life could be a little more chaotic than usual, but there are lessons to learn, mainly through others. As the day advances, it’s easier to settle down. In fact, there is wisdom to your spiritual ideas, and others might seek your advice. Feeling in harmony on a deep level can be satisfying.
TaurusWith Venus in your opposite sign these days, dear Taurus, you’re in an obliging, pleasant cycle for one-to-one relationships. In the first half of today, you may feel torn between the need for another’s company and feedback or approval, and the desire to go your own way, acting independently. There can be some emotional impulsiveness to manage, and while this sometimes does work in your favor, it has mixed results if you are reacting rather than acting from your heart. You might view yourself and your relationships (or a partner) in a new way now. Changes may be necessary for your growth, and a Venus-Uranus opposition has a way of stirring the pot just enough to see this. Try to discern between true, honest desires and mere whims. Later today, this comes more easily. In fact, good energy is with you for self-expression through and with others. There is a natural, spontaneous, and creative feel now, mainly related to networking, group involvement, friendship, and partnership. Your skills in organizing and planning are apparent now. Resolve to reach out to others in different or new ways.
GeminiWhile today is excellent for arriving at a better understanding of your needs, dear Gemini, getting to that point can take some trial and error. You can feel antsy if you feel that people or situations seem to be trying to pin you down or if you feel caged in today. As well, conditions that don’t quite represent you or that you think you’ve outgrown can be more bothersome than usual. Wait for things to blow over before you make impactful decisions. Small changes today, however, may lead to new and improved or incredibly innovative approaches and methods. You might use today’s Venus-Uranus energy constructively by letting it push you to take action on an important matter. However, it’s probably best to sit with a feeling for a while instead of reacting too quickly. Aim to be flexible in the face of changes, particularly in your daily affairs or with your work, for best results now. As the day advances, you’re in a good position to see your life direction or career matters in a creative yet structured way. You are better able to see what is valuable and worth your effort, and what isn’t.
CancerTransits in the first half of the day can help you free up some creative energy if you’ve been in a rut, dear Cancer, but they can throw you off-center temporarily. You might deal with others who are doing their own thing without much regard for your feelings on the matter. In truth, you may not know whether you want to be close to someone or prefer some space. Emotions can be up and down, which may very well lead to mixed signals. Expect the unexpected now, but aim to avoid making quick decisions about matters that require more thought and consideration. If you’re feeling caged in, look for non-disruptive ways to enjoy a sense of being free and independent. If others are unreliable, aim to focus on your own happiness. These energies are exciting on the one hand but perhaps over-stimulating on the other. As the day advances, things seem to stabilize. Transits are excellent for others noticing and appreciating you for your unique qualities. Creative and loving outpourings are possible.
LeoIn the first part of the day, dear Leo, comfort seems pitted against independence or freedom. With Venus opposite Uranus, it may be best to adapt to interruptions rather than fight them. Changes now can have a way of pulling up unacknowledged needs. Nevertheless, this transit can stir some restless feelings, with areas where you’ve felt in a rut or restricted in stronger focus. Displays and reactions are possible. Uncertainties about your work situation or the general direction you’re heading in life can now impact your relationships. Especially if you feel your current work or reputation no longer fits or represents you, you can feel some tension. Expect the unexpected today rather than cling tightly to your schedules. As the day advances, you’ll find it becomes more straightforward to get in deeper touch with your inner needs and desires. It’s a good time to get your emotional bearings.
VirgoYou’re likely to discover much about others, your feelings, and specific projects or pursuits today, dear Virgo, but you can go through some ups and downs before arriving at this understanding. If you’ve felt caged in, pampered, or stagnant in your studies and relationships, you’ll now want to do something to change it. You may need to go through a mini-rebirth in these areas to keep things fresh or to help release some creativity. Ideas that open new worlds for you are possible, and there can be an epiphany involved. You can surprise yourself by opening up and sharing something you’ve kept to yourself in the past. Or something might inspire you to change your learning focus. There’s also a tendency for you to clash with others regarding opinions and ideas. Aim to change things up just enough to hold your interest and keep things fresh, but try not to go too far with this since a Venus-Uranus opposition can lead to impulsiveness. Later today brings the recognition that you need both sides of a situation to draw solid conclusions. Learning endeavors are especially favored, as you recognize patterns and associations–something clicks. Sharing ideas can be satisfying.
LibraIt’s best to be open to making positive changes and improvements early today, dear Libra, and avoid sudden moves with Venus opposing Uranus. It’s a time when you might discover new methods or things that excite you, but it’s best not to do so too quickly. The more innovative or unusual, the more appealing it is! It’s easy to get riled up regarding your possessions, money, comfort, or any disarray involving these things. You might find someone opposes you, or changes in schedules send you in a new direction. There could also be a surprise in the intimacy department. Circumstances may seem to force a change if you’ve been clinging too tightly to habits and things. The key is to control quick impulses and keep your mind open to things that will benefit you or lighten your load–make room for your intuition to engage fully. Think outside of the box since anything too ordinary or mundane will only serve to frustrate you. As the day advances, you might spot a great deal or develop a unique business idea. Coming to the aid of people in your life can be rewarding. It can be an excellent time to see new ways of doing things that make your life a little more enjoyable.
ScorpioVenus in your sign these days can enhance your enjoyment, dear Scorpio. Early today, a Venus-Uranus opposition complicates things a little. Others may seem unreliable, or they may throw you for a loop, and centering yourself can be helpful. It’s best to watch for overthinking things or jumping too quickly to conclusions since either extreme doesn’t serve you well. With Venus in your sign, you may be looking for closeness while others seem to be channeling erratic Uranus or unavailable. Or, a significant someone could be reactive or rebellious when you prefer to keep things status quo. Activities that allow you more creative or spontaneous expression might help you channel the tremendous creative energy you are experiencing now. Transits today can remind you of the importance of developing your independence rather than allow yourself to be at the mercy of others’ moods. As the day advances, this comes more naturally. Connecting with someone special through perspectives or beliefs can figure strongly.
SagittariusIn the first half of today, your social life or emotional world can feel somewhat chaotic temporarily, dear Sagittarius. Inner changes are brewing, and today you may not know precisely what they are, but you’re aware that something is stirring! With Venus in opposition to Uranus, you’re tuning into matters related to freedom and independence. Changes in your schedule could lead to a bit of chaos, but through the disruptions, valuable new directions or methods can emerge. While there is an unpredictable feel to this energy, remember that it may be just what you need to get out of a rut. If you’ve been stagnating, this can be a time for releasing some creativity and doing something a little differently. As the day advances, it’s easier to pace and center yourself. Your enthusiasm for emotional understanding increases, inspiring others in your life to open up and connect with you. Intimate, private, and domestic matters are in positive focus.
CapricornWith Venus currently transiting your social sector, dear Capricorn, this is a generally pleasant time with friends, groups, or your hopefulness about your future. However, some uncertain or abrupt energy is with you early today on a social level. You’re less tolerant of situations or people who seem to be restricting you with an opposition between Venus and Uranus. You could be dealing with distractions or changes of heart. Look for ways to refresh areas of your life that have become dull or lifeless instead of making too-quick decisions. Consider possible updates and adjustments that can benefit you. It’s not a time to stubbornly hold onto what’s familiar. A person or connection that’s more creative, visionary, unusual, or unconventional can figure strongly now. As the day advances, transits support sharing, reaching out, and communicating. You can be excited to apply yourself to a personal interest or learning endeavor.
AquariusA Venus-Uranus opposition influences the first half of the day, dear Aquarius, reminding you of the need to make changes to areas of your life that have become too predictable. While it can stir up some tense energy, it can be eye-opening. Events occurring now tend to awaken you to a need for refreshment. New insights into your career or life path can emerge, and it’s essential to listen to cues around you. This influence calls for a progressive and innovative approach, but you shouldn’t push it too hard or take it too far. Aim to be flexible, especially since changes of plans or unreliability in others can figure strongly now. Try to identify what makes you feel restless and make a small change. As the day advances, transits highlight your special wisdom regarding how to best use your resources or talents. The need to put things into their proper places can be intense–you feel empowered by organization.
PiscesA Venus-Uranus opposition can pull up strong and perhaps rebellious feelings in the first half of the day, dear Pisces. Patience and attention may be short, or you might pull away from situations that feel too limiting. Changes can bring fresh air into your life, pointing you in the direction of new interests, even if at first they seem unwelcome! News or a change of plans can set you on a new train of thought or path. Aim to be flexible and to keep your mind wide open now to minimize frustrations. Avoid abrupt moves for best results. As the day advances, energies are good for creative connections or romance. You may be in the position to defend a truth, ideal, or person, or you can feel especially enthusiastic about a friendship or learning endeavor. Your inspired approach tends to encourage others.
