Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou’re in a generally favorable period for harmony in close relationships, dear Aries, although there can be some conflict stirred to get to a purer level of peace. Today, areas that you or someone may have swept under the carpet can emerge in small ways. It’s not easy to see your relationships clearly today. You might find your connections to be draining in some way. For example, if you’ve held to a fantasy of a relationship or situation, it can now pose minor problems. Responsibilities to others can feel unusually heavy today. Even so, you might eventually reach a fair agreement or compromise. While you may want to move something forward quickly, a Mars-Saturn challenge can seem to block or slow you down. Impatience slows you further, so consider that reviewing, editing, or adjusting attempts make more sense than taking direct and immediate action just for the time being. Take notes that can help prevent future problems.
TaurusThere can be minor confusing impressions and sensitivities or a feeling of being overwhelmed in spots today, dear Taurus. If so, it can be a signal to reevaluate matters and allow yourself more time. With a minor challenging aspect between Venus and Neptune, you’re prioritizing your desire to keep the peace and maintain harmony. It’s best not to go overboard with this, or else you could end up feeling misunderstood or unappreciated. You could instead feel let down by a broken promise. Don’t worry too much if you are a little out of sync with others or with your goals–it’s temporary. Look into ways to infuse more meaning, pleasure, or imagination into your work or chores. If you find yourself restlessly indulging or craving things, it may be that you need to get in better touch with your needs. A minor challenging aspect between Mars and Saturn can complicate things further. Focusing too much on the process of reaching your goals rather than the vision can be draining. It’s not the best day for feeling that you’re moving forward. However, you might enjoy committing to a project or health endeavor.
GeminiThere is some tendency to see a situation the wrong way today, dear Gemini, especially if it’s too close to your heart, with Venus and Neptune in an awkward aspect. Wishful thinking can blur perceptions with romance, business, and long-term planning. Consider that staying in a state of indecision over essentially trivial matters can sometimes drain more energy than dealing with the consequences of a decision. In truth, a temporary dip in motivation or spirits can be useful for realigning yourself. Impatience sets you back right now, and slowing down a tad makes the most sense. You may need to alter your plans or goals to keep something going. Reacting to delays carefully and maturely is your best bet.
CancerActivities with clear goals tend to fare better than matters of the heart, dear Cancer, which are not as straightforward. There can be some division due to uncertainty, which can leave you in an ambivalent state on a social level. The desire to do something different or unusual can be healthy, but your heart isn’t all in, as you seek more peace and familiarity these days. Try not to stay on the fence for too long. You might find that staying in limbo is more draining than simply making a decision and living with it. There’s no use wasting energy worrying about the little things. For the big stuff, however, it’s best to wait things out. A Mars-Saturn aspect also influencing the day can serve to frustrate. If you frequently find that a person in your life doesn’t budge or compromise enough, aim to work things out when you have the patience and time.
LeoYou could find yourself entirely absorbed in a pet project early today, dear Leo, or enjoying instrumental conversations. However, if you are feeling discontent on a social level, you’re likely to feel this more intensely as the day advances. If you’re not in touch with your heart today, it can be tempting to avoid the truth in your relationships. It’s probably better to admit uncertainty and move on for now. Otherwise, you could end up only spinning your wheels. There could be unspoken desires or a sense that you want something but can’t put your finger on what it is. Try not to allow distractions such as these to interfere with your goals. It’s a better time to keep things status quo than to push ahead, particularly as you might face rules, technical problems, or interruptions and blocks that throw a wrench in your plans. Spending more time perfecting your endeavors will ultimately work more in your favor.
VirgoThere can be odd desires or cravings that seem to come out of nowhere today, dear Virgo, along with a sense that you shouldn’t indulge! Two minor challenging aspects in play suggest it’s better to wait and see. It can be tempting to escape responsibility, hide things about yourself, or appease when you should probably stand up for yourself. Still, the timing is not excellent, so if you are uncertain, ride things out until you are clearer. Yearnings can be hard to pinpoint. Keep watch for a tendency to focus on everything except what deserves your attention! Superficial attempts to make yourself feel better are unlikely to satisfy and may even cost valuable time, energy, or money. The more you push, the stronger the resistance, so it makes sense to back off and be detached or aloof if you can manage it.
LibraToday’s Venus-Neptune quincunx makes it a fuzzy, uncertain time for decisions about love and money, dear Libra. Take care of yourself rather than doing everything for everyone else and forgetting what you need in the process. Avoid people-pleasing as a quick fix for achieving the peace and harmony you crave. Instead, aim to dream and let your intuition engage. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should probably avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime. A Mars-Saturn aspect is also in play today, and it suggests a block or obstacle. It’s not an ideal time to further your goals quickly or for spontaneity and warmth in your exchanges. However, with a bit of patience, this can be a good time to wait things out and to put in extra effort to get things right before pushing ahead with plans.
ScorpioVenus is in your privacy sector for a bit longer (until the 10th), dear Scorpio, and you need time to process and digest recent experiences. Today, part of you might be afraid to let go of a fantasy or ideal, but unrealistic expectations can lead to discomfort. Vague dissatisfaction can weave in and out today. Needs that come on suddenly and don’t make a lot of sense are probably things that only serve to lead you astray. Aim to connect with your true needs or work on your happiness rather than looking to others to bring joy to you. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them is the key now. A temporary lull can also slow you down long enough to explore alternate routes. Treat slowdowns as the chance to catch your breath and refine your goals, which is preferable to wasting your energy focusing on problems instead of solutions.
SagittariusOn an emotional or sentimental level, dear Sagittarius, minor challenging aspects today could leave you with a feeling that you’re not getting what you want. Look to address the root of a problem, but if you can’t seem to get at it, it may be wise to avoid going off on tangents. Try not to let yourself linger in limbo for too long today, especially for minor problems. Rest and reflect when you can, or consider focusing on one particular task at a time. For best results, avoid brand new beginnings, making waves, or essential decisions until confidence returns and timing improves. Consider that any delay occurring now is probably temporary. Focusing on what’s working in your life instead of what you don’t have is the key to peace and enjoyment.
CapricornMinor challenging aspects in play today suggest it’s not easy to be as productive as you’d like to be, dear Capricorn. Venus at the top of your chart these days generally points to increased enjoyment of your work or duties, but there are times, like today, when you may need a break from performing. You might agree to something to please someone, then later regret that you weren’t straightforward. There can be benefits through your work or from others, but you might find that it costs too much, in the long run, to yield to others at the moment. Watch for misconceptions today. A Mars-Saturn challenge is also in play, and it can make everything seem quite slow, particularly those things you’re not thrilled about doing in the first place. You may feel that others are not supporting you or your plans, but this is temporary. With patience and concentration, you’ll do well now, even if you’re not likely to charge full speed ahead.
AquariusSocial or emotional distractions make it difficult to focus your energy in spots today, dear Aquarius. There may be a hurdle to clear today, likely due to slowdowns or delays. As well, there can be some feelings of restriction or stubbornness. It’s not easy to see how you can practically manage everything you’d like to do–or where to begin. If you feel a slight letdown, it may be that you need some emotional refreshment. Some confusion about money, resources, or know-how can subtly get in the way of personal enjoyment or pursuing a new interest. However big your plans and ideas are at the moment, avoid being in a huge rush to put them into action until you feel fully confident about them. Today is more about winding down than pushing something forward. A bit of hesitation can help you find yourself.
PiscesToday’s Venus-Neptune transit can introduce some cause for hesitation or pause today, dear Pisces. A small bump in the road or a temporary dip in your confidence can slow you down and reorient you. Try not to allow empathy to override your common sense, as you tend to see what you want to see right now. You may feel slightly out of sync with others, and the temptation might be to compensate by going out of your way to make them happy. It may be better to aim to learn your own needs rather than spend your time and drain your energy trying to figure out what others want. Aim to resolve outstanding issues if they weigh you down, even if this is just about taking one or two steps towards your goals. Attempts to push something too hard or too fast will very likely face blockages.
