The erratic energy settles down today, revealing hidden layers of passion that lurk in the shadows of our minds as we head toward tomorrow’s Moon. Meanwhile, the conceptual Aquarius Moon gives us the ability to understand how an immediate situation fits into a larger context. However, our emotions flow freely now that needy Venus trines passionate Pluto. We have much to learn from those feelings we usually keep under wraps.

Prepare to journey to the bottom of the Sea of Mysteries today. You probably won’t be very comfortable during this excursion, but you know it’s something you must do to clear the air of hidden feelings. More emotions are brought to the surface than you prefer when compelling Venus trines dark Pluto, but you could return smiling from an unforgettable experience. As author Jack Canfield writes, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Although you are usually willing to wait for what you want, you may lose your cool as the energy builds prior to tomorrow’s Full Moon. A perceptive Venus-Pluto trine enables you to see through the apparent niceties in a romantic relationship, urging you to say what’s left unsaid. Thankfully, your ability to cut past superficial issues and get to the heart of the matter offers closure that has been out of reach. Wake up with determination and go to bed with satisfaction.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

Surprisingly, you’re not in the mood for casual flirtations today. You need to make deeper connections as sensual Venus in laser-like Virgo dances into the shadows of unfathomable Pluto, intensifying your desires. Your eagerness to sink into heavier feelings without analyzing them allows you to overcome your fear of emotional vulnerability. Don’t try to escape the complexity of the moment or you could miss the treasure that’s waiting for your discovery. Stay fully engaged until the darkness transforms into the light of awareness.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Relationship problems are more easily resolved and you can address difficult issues with the power and self-control required to produce the desired outcome. Compassion is the key to your success.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

A friend or partner might not respond as expected, raising uncharacteristic feelings of insecurity. This wave of self-doubt comes at an inconvenient time because an intense Venus-Pluto connection adds undeniable passion to everything you touch today. You don’t want to show your feelings because it only puts you in a more vulnerable position. However, maintaining integrity is more important than anything else now that Venus is visiting your 2nd House of Self-Esteem. Telling the truth may be awkward at first, but the emotional dynamics will quickly improve once everything is out in the open.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

ou are not afraid to step into the darker realms of your suppressed desires today. The love planet, Venus, creates an easy trine with intense Pluto to help you overcome complacency and make your needs known. Thankfully, the Aquarius Moon expands your perspective, allowing you to express yourself with sufficient detachment so others won’t be overwhelmed by your disclosure. Deep emotional transformation is just around the corner if you possess the clarity of mind to choose growth over stagnation.

Libra (September 23rd – October 21st)

You may experience intense desires today, yet you must settle your thoughts in order to enjoy the richness of the experience. Although you’re likely to be extra passionate about your cause now, you’re also aware that there’s a fine line between making your case and sounding like a fanatic. Fortunately, you’re able to take care of emotional business productively when Venus in analytical Virgo forms a charming trine with shrewd Pluto. This favorable alignment can also make you highly persuasive without seeming the least bit pushy to anyone around you.

Scorpio (October 22nd – November 21st)

You’re able to convey your strong passions to others today, yet you’re not so overwhelmed by your own feelings that you sacrifice your good judgment in the process. Sharp perception shows you the potential in people that others can’t see, while a profound awareness of what you need makes it simple to screen out distractions to get what you want. It’s almost as if you can’t go wrong as desirous Venus aligns in a harmonious trine with fierce Pluto, allowing you to apply your emotions intelligently. Repair a damaged relationship or strengthen a healthy one to take intimacy to a deeper level.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You excel at the art of persuasion today, and can easily convince others to give you the additional support you need. Stating your professional goals clearly entices the doubters to fall in line as they join your parade. The synergistic trine between magnetic Venus and passionate Pluto rewards you by revitalizing a valuable business relationship or setting a new one into place. Your talent for creating success through connections with others is solidified if you allow the energy to flow without restriction. It takes two sides to make a bridge.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You need to stop and make a decision before proceeding any further if your path to the future is still uncertain. Powerful Pluto in your sign is busy networking with resourceful Venus in your 9th House of Distant Horizons, reminding you to trust your feelings when it comes to setting long-term goals. As the Roman philosopher Seneca wrote, “If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.” Sink into your feelings; create a vibrant vision of your desired destination in your mind and make a promise to yourself to see your dream come to life.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

You might feel quite vulnerable today, and your drive for intensity could arouse issues that connect love with power. Addressing your fears can be highly therapeutic, especially if you are able to bring your most secret desires out into the light while the soulful Moon is visiting your sign. Stop thinking about all of the alternatives; you already know what you need to do. Expressing your hidden feelings deepens a relationship as Venus forms a restorative trine to resurrecting Pluto. Don’t build unnecessary walls between you and those you love.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

Strong emotional undercurrents take you on a transformational journey today. You’re not willing to accept “no” for an answer when sensual Venus forms a smooth trine to demanding Pluto, strengthening your desires. Unfortunately, it could be difficult to handle these intense feelings while the Moon is visiting emotionally detached Aquarius. But you may be pleasantly surprised with the results if you express your current dissatisfaction instead of suppressing the darker side of your attractions. It’s lack of communication, not distance, that keeps people apart.
