Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesA Venus-Neptune opposition early today can bring some level of discontent to the surface, dear Aries. Something could deflate you related to work, your dreaming world, or health. If a particular plan or project doesn’t seem as realizable, you could feel emotionally winded or drained. However, you’re likely to rebuild your inspiration based on more realistic goals. After all, you make the best decisions when you know what’s genuinely viable, and it’s not an ideal time to make them just yet. Today’s transits remind you of the need for some extra magic or inspiration in your life. What you see now may not be the whole story, and there’s no need to push to know everything just yet. Double-check facts and figures and avoid falling for things that seem too good to be true. On this day before a New Moon, reflection makes sense. It’s a good day to tidy up.
TaurusWith a New Moon tomorrow and a Venus-Neptune opposition today, dear Taurus, it’s time to regroup. There can be ambiguities, mainly related to your romantic life, friends, creative projects, and dreams or visions. Transits might lead to up-and-down emotions as you’re not sure whether to believe in something or not. Uncertainty tends to drain you, and it’s best to wait and see. Consider that a bit of realism can get you into a better place emotionally. Letting go of an outdated dream may make room for a new, more meaningful goal. Aim for a freeing feeling of acceptance of things as they are. While this is not the ideal day for taking direct action, it’s handy to observe the subtleties and nuances you might usually overlook.
GeminiThere’s a New Moon tomorrow, and today’s Venus-Neptune also gives you pause, dear Gemini. It’s a generally better day for reflecting and resting than pushing forward. Early today, social or romantic issues can feel larger than life temporarily. Confusion about long-term goals can interfere with productivity in the present. If it’s possible to take a healthy escape from responsibilities now, it may be worthwhile, but don’t borrow too much from your future in this regard. Your judgment regarding intimacy, love, and possibly finances can be off for now. Grounding or physical activities can get you to a more stable place. As the day advances, it’s a good time to get in better touch with your desires and needs.
CancerToday’s energies are better for observation and reflection, dear Cancer. There may be some confusion surrounding goals, instructions, and conversations early today with a Venus-Neptune opposition. Watch for sugar-coating things. It’s probably best to defer important decisions and discussions to a better time. Focusing or concentrating may not be easy, whether you’re distracted by interruptions or feelings that are hard to make sense of for the time being. The more you talk about a particular plan or try to get an answer from someone, the more confused you could become with this energy. It may be best to take a break. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, helping to redirect you. Today’s transits are good for learning and processing. You are not ready to commit to any one activity or endeavor, preferring to dabble and enjoy yourself as you do.
LeoWishful thinking may steer you a little off course with Venus in opposition to Neptune early today, dear Leo. Because this aspect falls in your resources sector, it’s best not to lend out money or valuables or make significant financial decisions for now. People might drain you, materially or emotionally, or situations are confusing. Being firm yet sensitive is your best bet for managing boundary problems. Still, it may be better to observe now and resolve to act on things later since it can be hard to see a financial or relationship matter clearly. As well, a New Moon will occur tomorrow, making today better for observation than taking new action. Avoid putting your precious resources, including energy and spirit, into something before you can feel more fully on board. You may need to dream up new ways to meet your goals.
VirgoA New Moon will occur tomorrow, and early today, a Venus-Neptune opposition occurs, dear Virgo, making today better for processing and observing. You might swing from seeing things as you wish them to be to seeing them in a discouraging or unflattering light. It’s best to be moderate or cautious with money and people matters, as extremes are where you are more likely to choose the wrong things at the moment. The people in your life or a particular relationship can feel draining temporarily. Strive towards more peace of mind for best results. In truth, you may need to go within to explore your feelings before you can know and then draw your boundaries. Take the time to understand yourself, and don’t take on others’ needs as your own. The Moon is in your sign all day, and your heart tends to rule your head. You can be feeling nostalgic.
LibraWith Venus and Neptune in opposition early today, dear Libra, it can be hard to arrive at conclusions about your feelings or problems getting closure on a matter. Responses can be ambiguous, but you’re also possibly hedging and avoiding things with this transit muddying the waters. Aim to dream, be inspired, and create, but be cautious with your practical affairs. It’s not easy to follow a routine or deal with routine matters temporarily. Distractions are likely, and disorganization can make you feel lost or behind. Aim to draw upon patience and let go of unhealthy expectations. Tomorrow, a New Moon will occur in your sign, and it makes sense to wind down and find ways to reflect and rest today.
ScorpioA Venus-Neptune opposition early today can push a realization that bumps someone or something off their pedestal, dear Scorpio. Problems related to boundaries with lovers, friends, or children can be an issue if you’ve been accommodating and letting things slide to maintain good feelings or peace. It’s not easy to sort between fact and fiction, and the ups and downs of this process can be draining. The best way to deal with the trick mirrors of this aspect is to permit yourself to take a break from overthinking or overanalyzing situations. A New Moon will occur tomorrow, making it even more appropriate to take it easy and observe today.
SagittariusVenus in opposition to Neptune early today can magnify some confusion about a particular plan, goal, or project, dear Sagittarius. Even if it’s a bit discouraging, it’s best to use it as a prompt to reflect and consider whether your dreams and ideals need some updating. Remember that if you experience disappointments, they may very well become opportunities to grow if they redirect you to healthier pursuits or more realizable goals. Uncertainty in your personal life may interfere with your enjoyment and performance elsewhere. You could be wrestling with expectations, or some things are up in the air. The truth of a matter can be elusive if wishful thinking dominates. Take the time to understand your feelings on an issue before going all in. This advice goes double with a New Moon tomorrow. Your mindset is practical but also progressive later today.
CapricornIt may be best to be conservative with your expectations today, dear Capricorn, particularly along social, financial, and romantic lines. While it’s usually your resting state, a Venus-Neptune opposition early today can play with expectations. You could feel energetically drained or uninspired. If a dream seems less realizable, you may need time to regroup. There may be confusing or mixed signals to decipher or the need to rethink some ideas or plans. It’s not the time to jump into something without considering all the facts. With a New Moon about to occur, taking your time, observing, and processing makes even more sense.
AquariusA New Moon will occur tomorrow, dear Aquarius, making today a better time for reflection than concrete action. As well, a Venus-Neptune transit early today suggests the need to rethink some matters or take a break from overdoing. While it sometimes marks a disappointment, it also encourages you to see issues differently, which is rewarding. There can be some lack of clarity regarding a person, project, or relationship. Swinging from one extreme view of a situation to the other end is possible now, but it can also be your path to a middle ground. If you’re not in touch with the cause of inner unrest, you may be pinning your hopes on something you don’t have, thinking it is the answer. However, given some time, you’re likely to redefine your goals or the route to them just enough to fit better with your current growth. As the day advances, you’re in fine shape for accessing your inner wisdom and putting your powers of observation to work.
PiscesOn this day before a New Moon, it’s a good idea to observe, digest, and process, dear Pisces. A Venus-Neptune opposition early today tends to play with your expectations or perceptions. Misunderstandings are possible. You get the sense that you need to give up something pleasurable to gain in another area of life. Consider that it’s not an ideal time to make big decisions based on the feelings of the moment, as whims can be misleading. It’s best to aim to be as honest with yourself as possible, as this is the key to building faith in your instincts. Others or something outside of you may seem to be the answer to inner unrest, but in truth, happiness is something you create. You may suddenly face needs and wants that you previously avoided or were too busy to notice. Consider that you may be drawn to a person, thing, or situation because you see in them something that you need to discover in yourself. You may be seeking out commonalities with others, and you could find that teamwork makes things a little easier as the day advances.
