Feelings about a person or project can be up and down today, dear Aries. You may feel that you have to make a tough choice, or you’re keen to enjoy yourself, but worries are preventing you from wholeheartedly doing so. You can be irritated by people who seem to want to control you, or work and responsibilities are an on-and-off nag. Pay attention to the fears and emotions that surface today, as you can learn a lot about what might be holding you back from going after what and who you want. However, learn to tune out the negative distractions and focus on what truly matters for making improvements. A certain self-consciousness may be with you along romantic, creative, or recreational lines now, but you can work with instead of against this energy. You’re in better shape for seeing the practical angles than the big picture, but do your best not to get too hung up on details.
Do your best to stay centered and avoid falling back into tired and old behaviors of relating today, dear Taurus. Your ruler, Venus, is forming a couple of minor but challenging aspects that can lead to giving off mixed messages or habitual, not so healthy responses in your interactions. You could feel you’re in a bit of a tight spot, choosing between two equally enticing alternatives, but it may very well be that it’s your fear of missing out that is interfering with your mood. Venus in your solar fourth house these days inclines you to prefer safe, familiar pastimes, but another part of your is itching for a change or afraid of missing something important. You’re inclined to close up or withdraw, making it a better time to work on your own.
Try not to push yourself to understand everything today, dear Gemini, as much as you may feel the need to know! Pushing is likely to stir up unnecessary problems. Thinking too much can complicate things, and suspicion may throw you off track. Some information can be missing, false, or exaggerated. Adjustments to your plans and projects may be necessary. Decisions can be a little tough today, but consider that you may be missing opportunities to make better memories if you are holding on to resentment. While there can be some tensions to deal with revolving around relationships or finances, this can also serve to balance out your thinking as you consider realistic and practical angles.
There can be some tendency to sit on the fence about a matter today, dear Cancer, perhaps because you sense that it may not be as wonderful as promised, or because you are uncertain of whether your perceptions are objective enough to hold weight. There is a tendency to second-guess decisions, and it may be wise to wait out making a big purchase. There may be disagreements with others about core values and money, or if clashes are not overt, you may instead feel a little out of synch with someone, and perhaps irritated if you think they don’t trust your ability to manage your life well. Details of plans may need further attention, and fortunately, later today you are in the right frame of mind to consider them. Love is complicated, but feelings that emerge can illuminate insecurities so that you can learn how to manage them better.
While challenges are not expected to be overt today, dear Leo, it may not be the best time to reach an agreement or a compromise. There is a tendency to question someone’s level of commitment. Outside obligations can pull a loved one’s attention away from you, and this can be a little offputting. Alternatively, there may be a separation or longing to be with someone that temporarily distracts you from the tasks at hand. While you are coming across as approachable these days with Venus in your sign, part of you requires periods devoted to reflection on, or processing of, recent activities. This can keep you in a state of limbo, but it need not be uncomfortable. While there can be unusual feelings today, the adjustments you make now can go a long way towards getting you to a better, more realistic place.
You’re likely to be doing some looking back and processing of recent events with Venus in your privacy sector these days, dear Virgo, and while this is appropriate now, it’s important not to overthink things today. Venus is making minor but challenging aspects, and emotions can bubble to the surface at unusual and possibly inconvenient moments. If you pay attention to the cues, though, you can learn a tremendous amount about what is truly behind your fears and insecurities, particularly about a relationship. Remember that anger is a defense mechanism that divorces you temporarily from feeling hurt. Allowing yourself to feel that hurt, however, may very well lead to a beautiful feeling of release and freedom. The day may not be an especially inspired one, but it’s useful for dealing with practical details.
There can be some pressure on you with Venus, your ruler, involved in minor but challenging aspects, dear Libra. This can come through (or about) friends, groups, or family, and it’s your choice whether to succumb to it or to stand your ground. Letting something slide is not always a bad thing – in fact, it can take more courage to do so in certain situations. It can be challenging to take a step back and allow others space when you’re feeling insecure, but it’s important to let go from time to time. A healthy level of detachment should be your goal now. You could have quite a difficult time making choices and decisions, which may be a blessing in disguise since you don’t have all the information or confidence to make satisfying ones just for now! The Moon spends the day in your recreation and play sector, encouraging you to unwind.
Today’s minor but tricky aspects involving Venus can point to feeling a little out of synch with others, dear Scorpio. You may inadvertently cause some problems — mostly for yourself! Try not to self-sabotage now as Venus in a very public area of your solar chart forms a quincunx with Pluto in your communications sector. You are especially sensitive to your reputation or professional image, but you may communicate something that stirs the pot and has a bit of a backlash. Be a little more vigilant about what you say now. If you want to push boundaries, there are better times to do so. You are inclined to notice the problems and flaws today, though, and this affords you the opportunity to make some critical fixes or edits.
You can feel as if you have a lot of blanks to fill in, and no clear way of doing so today, dear Sagittarius, particularly related to money and relationships! Life may not seem as straightforward as you’d prefer it to be and you may second-guess situations and people now. The desire to sniff out a truth can be intense but may not be worth it just for the time being. Be willing to let something go if insecurity is driving it. There is no need to dwell on a particular fear or uncertainty or obsess over what you don’t know about a situation because that’s where you’re inclined to trip up today. Trust that what you need to know will be revealed to you in time. While there are excellent times to think big, today is better for slimming things down.
Relationships seem a little more complicated than usual today, dear Capricorn, or this may be your feelings with Venus in minor but challenging aspects to both Pluto and Saturn in your sign. While you probably need to make some changes, avoid obsessive thinking that only serves to take you in a mental or emotional circle. You can feel a little out of step with others as if you can’t quite read a person or situation. Decisions are hard to make right now, but once made, a sense of relief can arrive. Focus on moving forward, and look for the best possible way to do so. Seek ways to detach yourself from attitudes or situations that drag you down. Today holds good energy for looking after details and practicalities.
Venus in your partnership sector is forming a couple of minor but tricky aspects today, dear Aquarius, and some adjustments may be required in a relationship, or others can remind you of a past difficulty or hurt that prompts you to make a change. It may very well be that you are overthinking things, so don’t rule that out, and don’t be afraid to make a few waves now if a change is what’s needed most, but if you want to make a big proclamation, this may not be the most receptive time. You may need to step back from situations to get the whole story or resign yourself to being content NOT knowing everything for the time being. The focus should be on strategy and plans of action rather than quick maneuvers today. Feeling somewhat left to your own defenses is temporary and may very well lead to something positive as you discover inner resources you never knew you had.
Venus in your work and health sector forms a couple of tense but minor aspects to planets in your social sector today, dear Pisces, and you may be doing some see-sawing between obligations and pleasure. Of course, this can lead to a state of limbo that is lukewarm, and nothing gets accomplished if you’re not careful, so find ways to either combine them or divide your time wholeheartedly. There can be too many demands from friends or employers, or you may be feeling used or underappreciated at the moment, making it essential to look for and then focus on choices that empower you instead of dwelling on the negative feelings. Insecurities about your performance or your usefulness or worth to others may be in focus. It’s not easy to stick to a schedule today, as there can be many distractions. Resolve to be flexible and allow for errors to make the best of the day. It’s better to work on the details than the big ideas under today’s conditions.
