Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesPeople tend to be stuck in their issues as Venus changes gears, dear Aries. Venus turning direct today after six weeks of retrograde motion marks the beginning of the end of ambiguous relations and feelings. However, during the shift occurring now, it can be tough to read others’ signals. Today and in the coming weeks, you’ll gain some clarity in partnership, love relationships, matters surrounding children, creative projects, and personal finances. It’s possible an innovative project that has been in the works but delayed will move forward, or a special relationship or even purchase is now a go. As these areas of life clear up, you gain more confidence about where you stand, how you feel, who and what you value, and what brings satisfaction to your life. Some details about the past need clearing up, and this is likely to happen naturally and gradually over the coming month, but the focus is now on moving ahead with more confidence. You’ll focus on bringing harmony, balance, and peace to your personal life with greater success. Disagreements or standstills may resolve. Some blockages are clearing, and others are developing with Mercury still retrograde until September 15th, but you appreciate that people seem kinder and that your own feelings are clearer.
TaurusVenus turns direct today after a six-week retrograde cycle, dear Taurus, and you’ll begin feeling more clear about your feelings in the days ahead. With its station today, there can be some ambiguity, particularly with boundaries in relationships and perception of value. However, you recognize what’s most important to you, who and what you value, and where you stand on a family or home issue that was left hanging or delayed. Mercury remains retrograde in your creative and romantic sector, which suggests there is still some backtracking. Still, the insights you’ve gained about the past, mainly related to your relationships and projects, can help you make improvements in the coming weeks. Because Venus is your planetary ruler, you’ll feel more clear-headed and decisive. Venus enables you to come across as you intend, while Mercury’s retrograde can play with words expressed, so it’s a little up and down, but interesting and rewarding. Today, don’t push yourself to make decisions.
GeminiIn some ways, today can feel a little confusing, and signals are crossing, dear Gemini. This is due primarily to the station of Venus as it shifts gears from retrograde to direct. Changes are in the works and very positive, but the shift itself can blur perceptions. Over the coming weeks, you’ll find more satisfaction from your daily affairs or with a delayed project, communications, or transportation matter that now resumes and straightens out. Some communication or equipment mix-ups can also resolve, although Mercury’s retrograde until the 15th can bring other delays. Romantic and creative matters move forward and feel lighter or more satisfying. The focus is less on the past and more on where you’re heading. Take your time for best results, particularly with Venus still slow and Mercury retrograde. Avoid situations that require judgments of value today if this is possible. Later today can be rewarding for goodwill and sharing ideas.
CancerVenus turns direct today, dear Cancer, after six weeks of retrograde motion. If you’ve faced issues with comfort during this cycle, you’ll find ways to improve things as you advance. Financial problems, delayed income or projects, and confusion over property can clear themselves up in the coming days and weeks. A home or family matter reaches a turning point. Relationships tend to be more predictable. Ideally, this period has helped you better understand your needs and wants. You can be given second chances. Life seems a little easier when you know what’s in your heart. Even so, the change can temporarily intensify problems, or at least we perceive things in this vein, and relationships can be tricky. It’s better to avoid making big purchases or depending on verbal agreements about money. Aim to think up new ways to protect, improve, or build your resources.
LeoVenus ends its over six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Leo. Because this phase occurred in your sign, it’s been a little more personal for you! While you’ll likely be cautious with your heart for a bit longer, you’ll slowly get back on track regarding pleasure, comfort, and love. In the coming month, Venus will move over the same degrees it did while retrograde, offering you second chances and new perspectives. Personal matters that have challenged you in recent weeks may resolve themselves, and stuck areas of your life can unclog and move forward. You can become clearer about which projects you should advance and which may have run their course. You’re clearer about who or what you want, and personal appeal increases. Stuck areas of your life can unclog and move forward. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll feel freer to enjoy and express yourself. While today’s shift can be disorienting, you’ll grow accustomed to the change in no time. Avoid making or breaking commitments until the fog clears. Consider, too, that Mercury is retrograde until the 15th.
VirgoVenus turns direct today, dear Virgo, after a little over six weeks of retrograde motion. This development helps clarify your feelings, although the shift itself can generate some confusion. Complicated relationships or feelings start making sense, and the road ahead seems more certain. Matters that have left you on the fence or that have stalled begin to push forward. A decision about a past matter can be easier to make–it may even become irrelevant. There could be a resolution to feeling stuck in the past or hung up on a matter/relationship that’s no longer viable. As with all stations, whether it’s a shift to retrograde or direct, it’s not an ideal time to make or break commitments. Ease into this new direct phase for the best results. As well, Mercury remains retrograde in your sign until the 15th. As such, you can enjoy progress on certain fronts while experiencing some apparent backtracking in other areas. You now enjoy a better understanding of what and who you like. How you genuinely feel about your relationships and pastimes is clear. Let your mind catch up with your heart before pushing forward for the best results.
LibraAfter a little over six weeks of retrograde motion, Venus begins to move forward today, dear Libra. As your natural ruler, you may have been in limbo at times during the retrograde and perhaps a little misunderstood. But changes are in the air, and they are positive! Life is set to feel smoother, particularly with friends, social matters, networks, and happiness pursuits. However, your perceptions are unclear as the shift occurs, so take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. With Mercury still retrograde until the 15th, there can be more review and reflection to do. Fortunately, there are fewer emotional entanglements or complicated interactions to distract you. In fact, there can be significant improvements or clarity in relationships, both platonic and romantic. Ideally, you’ve gained valuable insight into your friendships, goals, and level of satisfaction with your connections. Delays lift, answers arrive for some questions, and life goes on.
ScorpioVenus ends its retrograde phase today after just over six weeks, dear Scorpio. With Venus now direct, you’ll be clearer about your affections, which helps you rise above minor problems. In the days and weeks ahead, you’re also in better touch with your level of satisfaction with your work, goals, life path, and partnerships. Delays lift, and you know how to bring more pleasure to your work or responsibilities. People you work with (or for) tend to be more amenable and kinder. Love relationships are on the mend. The tendency to look back instead of forward is leaving you. While some areas of life show forward movement, others may be stalling with Mercury retrograde until the 15th. Fortunately, you have a better understanding of your feelings, making technical problems easier to manage! On the days surrounding stations, like today, there can be some confusion or disorientation, making it especially important to avoid sweeping (especially public) statements or life-changing decisions. Keep a low profile just for now.
SagittariusVenus ends its six-week retrograde cycle and turns direct today, dear Sagittarius. Now and in the weeks ahead, you’ll see certain delays lift and feel some forward motion with your relationships and projects. In recent weeks, you may have discovered new ways to enjoy yourself and revived an old hobby or study. Ideally, you’ve reviewed your affections, arrangements, and obligations and are now beginning to feel more equipped to make decisions. As you advance, the connections you make bring you more joy. Publishing, legal, educational, or travel matters may unblock. Still, perceptions can be a little blurry with the shift that’s occurring today. As well, Mercury remains retrograde until the 15th, so while some blockages lift, others can take a while longer! If possible, avoid big decisions, ease yourself forward in some areas, and review others.
CapricornVenus shifts gears today, dear Capricorn, ending a six-week retrograde cycle. While today’s shift can distort perceptions, more clarity is coming to personal relationships, money, and career matters in the coming weeks. Love relationships grow warmer, or affection is more explicit, so the signals you’re reading sound loud and clear! A new feeling of clarity and forward motion will come to your love life and financial status. If you’ve been procrastinating on settling your finances, you’ll be more inclined to tackle them. Some of the discoveries you’ve made about your relationship needs and values in recent weeks will likely impact decisions made now, helping to round them out. Nevertheless, Mercury is retrograde until the 15th, and the pace can remain relatively slow. The Venus retrograde has mostly affected your intimate relationships, debts, and money, and delays are likely to lift going forward. Mercury’s retrograde may complicate some matters, such as publishing, communications, or transportation. However, moods are brighter, which can make dealing with technical problems manageable! Today may still involve some fog or uncertainty, so aim to take your time drawing conclusions.
AquariusVenus ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Aquarius, and you’re turning a corner. You’ve recognized areas of dissatisfaction or imbalance with close relationships, personal interests, or studies, and now you see where you can make improvements. In the weeks ahead, you’ll enjoy opportunities to bring more harmony to your partnerships and joy to your adventures or extra-curricular activities. Confidence builds. Gradually, you’ll enjoy more direct and comfortable interactions, and love and pleasure will flow more naturally. Delays with publishing, educational, legal, or travel matters could lift, and one-to-one relationships are more direct and forward-looking. You’re no longer focusing more on the past than you are enjoying the present. Today, take things easy and avoid make-or-break decisions and commitments. Mercury remains retrograde until the 15th, and it’s still not a time to push things ahead, even though your mood is lighter.
PiscesVenus ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Pisces, and you could feel like you’re turning a corner. While Venus has been retrograde, you may have questioned some of your attachments or levels of joy. Ideally, it’s been a helpful process, either serving to strengthen your commitments or alerting you to stale areas of your life that need special attention! Certain delays and uncertainties are lifting now. There can be forward movement in your relationships, daily affairs, finances, work, and health. You might enjoy some second chances or have an opportunity to redo things that recently caused you trouble, this time with more wisdom. You’re not as inclined to ruminate or dwell. Happily, love and pleasure become more straightforward. You’ll begin to see solutions for dull routines or unsatisfying work. Aim to take things easy regardless, not only because Mercury remains retrograde until the 15th but also because things are unclear on days of a Venus shift. Problem areas may temporarily magnify before you see your way through them.
