Moderating our feelings sounds like a good idea while the moody Moon is camped out in virtuous Virgo. Additionally, romantic Venus narrows her range of desires as she enters discerning Virgo. We may think that everything is under control, but passions intensify throughout the day as the planet of love engages with ruthless Pluto later this evening. However, a late night Moon-Jupiter conjunction encourages us to suppress our emotions with logic.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

Office politics can impede your progress today. Although you are prepared to do whatever it takes to fulfill your professional obligations, it’s still a struggle to overcome the resistance of your coworkers. It might seem as if an authority figure is working against you now, but it’s your choice as to whether or not to buy into anyone else’s negativity. Sweet success is your best revenge.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You have a green thumb and make beauty bloom on many forms. Beautiful Venus enters earthy Virgo and your 5th House of Self-Expression today, helping you create a garden of joy. You give off the air of being able to manifest flowers in the desert and bring happiness to those you love. However, Venus also forms a tricky aspect to resourceful Pluto, requiring you to transform awkward moments into pleasant ones. Connections with others are difficult only if you try to control your feelings.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You are living life boldly these days yet anticipate a change as you step back from the hectic pace. Nevertheless, your creativity is enhanced as artistic Venus dances into your 4th House of Roots today. But her difficult aspect with unforgiving Pluto can impede your self-expression until you deal with unfinished business on the home front. Blood makes you related; loyalty makes you family.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

While it’s challenging to see a situation from someone else’s point of view, it’s crucial to do so if you want the relationship to grow. Processing your emotions will bring you the confidence to express your own opinions more effectively while still remaining open to those of others. You’re appreciated for your willingness to discuss complex issues now that friendly Venus is visiting refined Virgo in your 3rd House of Communication. You can’t judge people’s choices without understanding their reasons. Treat others with the same respect you wish to receive.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You may desperately try to maintain a practical perspective on your finances today, but difficulties arise from your tendency to indulge your extravagant tastes. Even if you intend to limit your desires to those things that are the most valuable, your practical perspective might not last. Although loving Venus enters efficient Virgo in your 2nd House of Self-Worth, her stressful aspect to passionate Pluto has you chasing rainbows instead of real satisfaction. Balancing your open heart with common sense helps you avoid unnecessary disappointment.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You are facing important decisions now, especially in financial matters. If you’ve been wavering, this is the right time to tune into your gut feelings and take decisive action. It helps if your choices are rooted in self-confidence, which, thankfully, receives a boost when attractive Venus enters your sign today. Your charming personality and sense of style turns heads in your direction during this alluring transit. But don’t expect an easy victory since ruthless Pluto is testing your resolve. It has been said that if the road is straight and smooth, you’re likely going the wrong way.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

Set aside your pursuit of passing pleasures today so you can be clear about which desires matter the most. You are in a serious frame of mind and want to narrow your options as sensual Venus enters discriminating Virgo. It makes sense to simplify your relationships and eliminate distractions in preparation for the changes ahead. Given a choice, forgo immediate gratification in the name of long-term emotional balance.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You are eager to solidify a relationship now, but might not know how to reach your goal. However, old issues come to the surface and show you where you might have made mistakes. But go easy on the self-criticism, since the point is to improve your capacity for love and pleasure, rather than dishing out punishment. Although you might feel jealousy or resentment, motivate yourself to take positive action rather than dwelling upon the past.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You’re more concerned with your career path than anything else now. Diplomatic Venus camps out in your 10th House of Career through the end of the month, enhancing your reputation and attracting lucrative opportunities. Nevertheless, your familiar struggle between freedom and responsibility may come back to haunt you. Nevertheless, find ways to meet your obligations while still allocating enough free time for play. As Albert Einstein said, “Creativity is contagious; pass it on.”

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

Communicating your intentions about the next phase of your life is essential today. Magnetic Venus attracts you to exotic people in faraway places when she joins the planetary pack in your 9th House of Travel. However, her presence in earthy Virgo keeps your feet on the ground. Your pragmatic approach to living provides a strong foundation for facing the rising tide of feelings that can wash reason away now. Follow your dreams but be sure to pack your integrity along for the ride.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

A never-ending string of little issues require your attention now, but it’s wise to save some of your time to think about your long-term goals. Caution is stressed as modest Venus steps into meticulous Virgo and your 8th House of Intimacy, but the presence of mental Mercury, the evocative Moon and bombastic Jupiter already have you focusing on the more complex emotional dynamics. Nevertheless, as Lao Tzu wrote, “He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself if enlightened.”

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

It may be time to repair a damaged partnership, but it’s nearly impossible to bring passion into a conversation without experiencing some loss of control. Fortunately, you’re more alluring now as captivating Venus visits your 7th House of Relationships. Being clear about what you want is a good idea that becomes more difficult in the days ahead. A magical connection can stir romantic feelings, but you’ll need to see where it goes over time to see if it’s real.
