You are more inclined to move from one activity to the next today, dear Aries, than to specialize or focus. You are likely to find that there is a lot to do today, but it may also be simply about your perceptions, as you can be a little scattered. If this is a problem, aim to attempt things step by step. It can be a real challenge to juggle work, duties, chores, and personal interests these days, and there’s more of that to come in the months ahead, so figuring out priorities now can certainly help reduce the pressure. Venus moves into a pleasing relationship with your sign tonight, where it will transit for three and a half weeks. This can bring a nice boost to your friendships.
Emotions are settling in today, dear Taurus, and so are you, or at least trying to! You’re in the mood for simple comforts and an easy, steady pace. It’s a good time for activities that remind you of the beauty of the here and now. An event could take place that opens your eyes to the need for handling debts or shared resources more effectively, which of course could complicate the calm, but getting your finances, or relationships for some of you, sorted out will benefit you greatly. Venus moves to the top of your chart tonight, where it will stay until March 12th. This is a strong cycle for making nice with the public or people you work with/for.
Someone can be a naysayer today, dear Gemini, or otherwise raining on your parade. This is a time when others tend to be laying down the rules for you. While this can be annoying, a partner may in fact have some good advice, if you can look past the negativity. While you can feel pulled in many different directions today, there is good opportunity for connecting with friends, who have fewer expectations of you. You’ll need to deal with the expectations of people important to you eventually, but you also need some personal space. Venus moves into your spirit sector tonight, where it will stay until March 12th, and this pulls you out of any possible relationship funk you may have been in.
There is a real tendency to want to escape or retreat from the usual noise and activity of life today, dear Cancer. Finding effective ways to do so in healthy, helpful ways is important now. Your heart may not be in your work or routines today, but avoid rushing through them, as you could be missing something important. Now and in the months ahead, you may have some trouble with schedules in your life, or you may not be satisfied with any one area or life “department”. Establishing priorities is important. Venus moves into your intimacy sector tonight, where it will transit for the coming three and a half weeks. It’s a time for exploring some of your deeper needs and desires.
There can be a real need or desire to spend some easygoing time with others, dear Leo, free of expectations. However, it can be difficult to maneuver at times today, as business, romance, or creative projects demand attention as well. It can be a juggling act today, and this in many ways can be a theme in upcoming months, and you’d be wise to explore ways to find a healthy balance. Venus moves into your partnership sector tonight, where it has some company. For the next three and a half weeks, you’re in a strong position for bringing more harmony and love to your relationships.
Your emotional orientation inclines you to want to take care of business and perform well today, dear Virgo, but it can be difficult as you are pulled in different directions. Responsibilities or problems on the home front could demand attention. Until you get your heart and body in sync, you may feel a little off-center. You’re moving in the right directions these days, but give yourself time to figure out your priorities. Venus moves into your sector of work and health tonight, and for the next three and a half weeks, there is decent energy for finding a little more pleasure and satisfaction in your daily routines.
There is certainly an emotional need to escape the duller, mundane matters of daily life today, dear Libra, and while it’s important to answer to this need in some manner, you could find yourself tied to certain duties or responsibilities that require your attention. Coming to a good balance is the challenge now, which involves moderation as well. Watch also for coming across in a critical or judgmental manner. Although this is not usually a problem with your sign, with Saturn in your communications sector these days, you may not even realize that you are being curt at times. Venus moves into your romance and pleasure sector tonight for a three and a half week stay.
Today is useful for uncovering information that may have been hidden, or simply not obvious to you before, dear Scorpio. You’re looking to feel a little more powerful and in control of impulses that aren’t serving you well. This can be a time for talking strategy about business, financial, and other practical matters with someone, although you may not entirely enjoy the process, or what you hear. You’re more interested in the feeling side of your life than the material world today. Others may be a little aloof or not very yielding in this respect for now. Venus moves into your home and family sector tonight, and will transit this area of your solar chart until March 12th. This can be a good time for seeking out comfort and harmony on the home front.
You are more relationship-focused than usual today, dear Sagittarius, and while others can have something to teach you about yourself, you could have a bit of a hard defining what you are truly feeling, as emotions can be mixing with what you feel is expected of you. Avoid important decisions until you are more sure of yourself and in touch with your true needs. Watch for a tendency to be nitpicky or critical if you’re feeling stressed or out of touch. Venus moves into your communications sector tonight, where it will stay for the next three and a half weeks, stimulating a warmer, gentler approach to the people in your life, and some real pleasure in learning and connecting as well.
You can be quite determined to make sense of your personal or work environment today, dear Capricorn, and to tend to important work, tasks or chores, as you’d like to get them out of your way. Your productivity can be undermined, however, by issues that cause you anxiety or guilt. Try not to let these matters take over to the point that your interactions with others are tense. Providing a service or volunteering your help to someone today can have its rewards. Venus moves out of your sign tonight, and into your solar second house, where it blesses your material world, business instincts, and comfort levels for the next three and a half weeks. This is a time for getting comfortable.
Avoid last minute decisions today, dear Aquarius, especially when it comes to close relationships and partnerships. Take more time to assess the situation. Arguments entered into today can reach stalemates. Wait for a better day to communicate your deeper feelings. More confidence in a special friend or partner, however, feels good and reflects back to you positively. Venus enters your sign tonight, and will stay there until March 12th. It’s a wonderful cycle for personal attraction and good for some self-pampering as well!
There is continued focus on your personal life and basic needs today, dear Pisces. Even so, responsibilities call, and while your heart may not be in it today, it’s better to get what you have to do, done. There may be a conflict brewing between your attention to relationships and work. It could seem that the more joy you’re finding in your connections, the less interest you have in your performance. However, this is a year in which you’re going to have to put some serious effort into structuring and achieving. Look for a better balance. Venus moves into your privacy sector tonight, and in the coming weeks, there is more pleasure in behind the scenes activities. It’s a time for learning about your innermost needs in love.
