Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, September 18

It feels as if love is hard to find today, but we might be pleasantly surprised if we take the time to look beyond surface appearances. We may show our displeasure by withdrawing emotionally as the somber Venus-Saturn conjunction resonates through our lives. It’s not easy to blend the affectionate warmth of Venus with the calculated coldness of Saturn. However, the compassionate Pisces Moon offers a spiritual response to more practical questions.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Withholding support from someone isn’t a good idea today even if you’re trying to send a message of disapproval. Or maybe you want to separate yourself from a project that has gone astray. In either case, your actions aren’t helpful if your responses are based on fear of the unknown. It’s more useful to honestly talk about the cause of your concerns without blaming anyone else. But don’t expect the tension to dissipate right away. Stay on your current path by working with others until you gain more clarity after tomorrow’s Full Moon.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You might feel a little left out of the fun as if there’s an emotional chill in the air now that your key planet Venus is restrained by the dominance of karmic Saturn. Although you may fight against the resistance at first, letting go of control is the smartest way today to quickly turn an uncomfortable situation into a very sweet one. Give up a little independence voluntarily; it’s a small price to pay in the big scheme of things and can improve your chances of receiving the love that you desire.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may be offered a tough choice today, especially if you aren’t one to make a commitment easily. You could be very convincing as you explain your desire for intimacy, but you’ll likely retreat if someone gets too near to your heart. However, mustering up enough courage to overcome your fears is the key to happiness. Luckily, you don’t have to repeat the same old patterns just because you are scared of getting hurt. Take a leap of faith and trust the process.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It appears that you could get the support you need from a close friend or a family member if you ask for it, so you don’t really have a logical reason to keep quiet now. Even if you can’t easily imagine that someone will actually be there for you, taking a calculated risk should turn out fine. Instead of seeing your current situation as requiring an all-or-nothing approach, try to establish enough common ground for the basis of a solid partnership. Let others nurture you the way you would nurture them.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

It may be awkward to engage in a casual conversation now because your feelings might be exposed and you’re afraid that you won’t get what you want. Your unspoken fears could actually turn into a self-fulfilling prophesy today, especially if you withdraw from social interaction. Fortunately, you have the power to overcome the negativity of your own self-limiting thoughts. You can turn things around by changing your attitude and opening your heart.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

It’s time to make a crucial decision about how best to spend or save your money. But this goes much deeper than being a simple cash flow problem because the underlying issue is more likely about your self-esteem. When you realize all the skills that you have to offer, your earning power could grow quickly, so don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you’re worth any less than you actually are.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are not inclined to waste your energy while sharing your feelings today. You are very practical when it comes to allocating your time now that your key planet Venus runs into austere Saturn in your 2nd House of Resources. You may be very rational about cutting back on frivolous pleasures to assure that you will have what you need on a rainy day. Although caution makes sense, remember that there is an unlimited supply of love, so you can always splurge where it matters most.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You don’t need to suffer in silence today if you’re willing to face an old fear with a new attitude. Your current isolation is probably more voluntary than you care to admit now that the sobering Venus-Saturn conjunction occurs in your sign. The current situation has very little to do with what happened to you in the past. It’s your choice; you can respond emotionally based on old worn-out habits or you can live fully in the present. Ultimately, being realistic is a much more empowering strategy than being pessimistic.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Don’t be so quick to assume that your friends are putting you down today when your warped perceptions may be contributing to the dynamics. You might be so sensitive now that you’re imagining trouble, even where there isn’t any. However, it may be too late to avoid the discomfort if negativity has already been generated by your feelings of uncertainty. Instead of projecting previous failures onto others, talk about your concerns without pointing fingers at anyone else. Honest dialogue clears the air by getting everything out into the open.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It may be disheartening if you don’t receive the professional respect you deserve now as vulnerable Venus bumps up against your key planet Saturn. You’ve done the hard work, yet unfortunately, your ego can get in the way by tricking you to think that you should be more highly appreciated than you are. Don’t waste your time dreaming about recognition and fame. The real reward is the deep satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve done your very best.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Unfortunately, there’s no room on your schedule to surrender to your desires now. Instead, you must maintain an emotionally cool and competent presence at work while sweet Venus runs into austere Saturn in your 10th House of Profession. Don’t waste energy complaining about what you’re missing; instead, get busy working on your long-term goals. Seeking personal satisfaction has to wait; being patient today is your best strategy to realizing your dreams tomorrow.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Too much resistance from a partner doesn’t give you an excuse to go off brooding today. Don’t isolate yourself from someone you love deeply just because you think that everything isn’t perfect between you. It’s tempting to hide your head in the sand like an ostrich, but this avoidance technique is certainly not a sensible long-term solution. Facing the shortcomings of a relationship might actually put you back in touch with your heart, which in turn, could lead to an emotional healing.
