Welcome to Sagittarius season!


While you're in a generally favorable period for harmony in close relationships, dear Aries, sometimes a bit of conflict gets you to a purer level of peace. Today, areas that have been swept under the rug can emerge in small ways. While your spirits are generally good today, it's not the best time to see your relationships clearly. You may even get into a position where you're doing so much for others that you feel drained. If you've held to a fantasy of a relationship or situation, this can now pose some minor problems. It may be best to give your heart a little more time on a matter. Patience will serve you best right now. Also today, you could experience some form of backing or commitment from family or related to home life, stirring a solid desire to plan and work more enthusiastically toward your goals. Fearless dealing with emotional issues can figure strongly and can be quite practical in effect, helping you approach your life with balance.


There can be minor confusing impressions and sensitivities or a feeling of being overwhelmed at times today, dear Taurus. It can be a time to reevaluate matters and allow yourself more time, not to drop or abandon a pursuit. A minor challenging aspect between Venus and Neptune can prompt you to prioritize your desire to keep the peace and maintain harmony today. However, it's best not to go overboard with this, or else you could end up feeling misunderstood or unappreciated. You might instead feel let down by a broken promise. Don't worry too much if you are a little out of sync with others or your goals-it's temporary. Look into ways to infuse more meaning, pleasure, or imagination into your work or chores. If you find yourself restlessly indulging or craving things, you may need to get in better touch with your needs. On the other hand, you could be excited to make progress on projects dear to your heart, and with more meaningfulness, you are all the more dedicated.


With a Venus-Neptune aspect influencing the first half of the day, dear Gemini, there is some tendency to see a situation the wrong way, especially if it's too close to your heart. Wishful thinking can blur perceptions related to romance, business, and long-term planning. You are unlikely to be sure about making a significant commitment or decision, and it may be better to avoid overcompensating for feeling uncertain and instead make time for rest or time out. Consider that staying in a state of indecision over essentially trivial matters can sometimes drain you of more energy than dealing with the consequences of a decision. Focus on what you feel good about doing and tune out what others think or say as much as you can. Consider that a temporary dip in motivation or spirits can help you realign yourself. As the day advances, it becomes more natural to put tricky issues aside. Sorting something out boosts your confidence. Your enthusiasm and willingness to work to achieve your desires positively impact your income, work, or health.


While activities with clear goals tend to fare well today, dear Cancer, matters of the heart are not as straightforward. There can be some division due to uncertainty, leaving you in an ambivalent state on a social level. The desire to do something different or unusual can be healthy, but your heart isn't all in temporarily as you seek more peace and familiarity. Try not to stay on the fence for too long. In truth, staying in limbo can sometimes be more draining than simply deciding and living with it. There's no use wasting energy worrying about the little things. For the big stuff, however, it's best to wait things out. Another influence today highlights your unique qualities or dedication. Bonding over ideas and principles can figure strongly. As the day advances, it comes naturally to approach your world in a balanced manner.


Your practical goals have more power today, dear Leo. Self-improvement endeavors can be an active, positive focus, and so can activities related to home and family. Family matters seem to be strengthening, and you can feel more dedication to working things through. If you are feeling discontent on a social level, however, you're likely to feel this more intensely early today. Still, not knowing your heart today may tempt you to avoid the truth in your relationships. It's probably better to admit uncertainty and move on for now. Otherwise, you could end up only spinning your wheels. There could be unspoken desires or a sense that you want something but can't put your finger on what it is. Try not to allow distractions such as these to bring you down. Instead, aim to take more time to get in touch with your needs. It's a better time to keep things status quo than to push ahead. It probably won't pay to make waves if confidence is dipping or you don't have all the necessary tools to manage a situation. This is temporary and can help you reorient yourself.


There can be odd desires or cravings that seem to come out of nowhere today, dear Virgo, along with a sense that you shouldn't indulge. A Venus-Neptune aspect can tempt you to escape responsibility, hide things about yourself, or appease when you should probably stand up for yourself. Still, the timing is not excellent, so if you are uncertain, ride things out until you are clearer. Yearnings can take time to pinpoint. Keep watch for a tendency to focus on everything except what deserves your attention! Superficial attempts to make yourself feel better are unlikely to satisfy, and may even cost valuable time and energy, and possibly money. Even so, today's energies are just fine for activities in which the goal is clear. In fact, you're in a great position to secure or organize an area of your life. You're seeing the value of preparation, so take advantage.


Today's Venus-Neptune quincunx makes it a fuzzy, uncertain time for decisions about love and money, dear Libra. Take care of yourself rather than doing everything for everyone else and forgetting what you need in the process. Avoid people-pleasing as a quick fix for achieving the peace and harmony you crave. Instead, aim to dream and let your intuition engage. Self-doubt or confusion is temporary, but you should probably avoid speculation, significant purchases or sales, and big decisions in the meantime. There can be up and down moods, primarily because looks can be deceiving. However, another aspect in play today helps you brush feelings aside when needed so that you can take care of business. You may come to excellent ideas or conclusions about business, financial, or health matters.


Venus is in your privacy sector these days, dear Scorpio, and you need time to process and digest recent experiences. Today, part of you is afraid of letting go of a fantasy or ideal, but unrealistic expectations can lead to discomfort. Vague dissatisfaction can weave in and out. Needs that come on suddenly and that don't make a whole lot of sense are probably things that only serve to lead you astray right now. Aim to connect with your genuine needs or work on your happiness rather than looking to others to bring you joy. Accepting things for what they are and appreciating them is the key now. A temporary lull can also slow you down long enough to explore alternate routes. After a brief spell of feeling doubtful or unmotivated, you'll find it easy to tune out the non-essential! Another influence in play today makes it easier to pace yourself and learn from mistakes. You might gain some appreciation or recognition for your intelligence, insight, or creativity.


On an emotional or sentimental level, a Venus-Neptune aspect today could leave you feeling you're not getting what you want, dear Sagittarius. Look to address the root of a problem, but if you can't get at it, it is wise to avoid going off on tangents. Try not to linger in limbo for too long today, especially for little problems. Rest and reflect when you can, or consider focusing on one particular task at a time. Avoid brand-new beginnings, making waves, or essential decisions until confidence returns and timing improves. Ideally, discontent motivates you to make needed adjustments. It's not a time for moving ahead straightforwardly, but you can get some little things done that ultimately help you advance. For example, you could be in the mood to organize an area of your life or otherwise find ways to make a situation work for you. It can be a good time for ironing out differences or tackling projects that can benefit from a cooperative effort.


It can be challenging to be as productive as you'd like to be today, dear Capricorn, with a Venus-Neptune aspect in play. Venus at the top of your chart these days generally points to increased enjoyment of your work or duties, but there are times like today when you may need a break from performing. You might agree to something to please someone, then later regret that you weren't straightforward. There can be benefits through your work or from others, but it could cost too much, in the long run, to yield to others at the moment. Watch for misconceptions today. Circumstances test your vulnerabilities, but you can move beyond this, or you get the chance to sort everything out to your advantage later. Another influence in play today draws your attention to fixing problems, and activities with clear goals feel much easier than the open-ended ones right now.


At times today, social or emotional distractions make it difficult to focus your energy, dear Aquarius. It's difficult to see how you can practically manage everything you'd like to do--or even where to begin. If you feel a little, let down or in a frump, it may be that you need some emotional refreshment. However big your plans and ideas are at the moment, don't be in a huge rush to put them into action until you feel fully confident about them. Vague problems or disconnects can leave you feeling somewhat out of sync. Some confusion about money, resources, or know-how can subtly get in the way of personal enjoyment or pursuing a new interest. Today is more about winding down than pushing something forward. In truth, a bit of hesitation can help you find yourself. Making minor improvements to your life is especially favored on emotional, mental, and physical levels. You might thoroughly enjoy making budgets, plans, and strategies.


On some levels today, you can experience hesitation or pause, dear Pisces. A small bump in the road or a temporary dip in your confidence can help slow you down and reorient you. Try not to allow empathy to override your common sense, as there is some tendency to see what you want to see. Nevertheless, you may feel slightly out of sync with others, and the temptation might be to compensate by going out of your way to make them happy. It may be better to aim to learn your own needs rather than spend your time and drain your energy trying to figure out what others want. Aim to resolve outstanding issues if they've weighed you down, even if this is just about taking one or two steps toward your goals. You could feel more grounded and enjoy focusing on getting things in order if you have a set or precise goal.
