Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Love and adventure are the themes of your day, thanks to a rosy merger of expansive Jupiter in your travel zone and ardent Venus in your fifth house of romance. Been crushing on someone in secret? Seriously, best-case scenario, where’s that going to get you? Out with it, Aries. Even if the attraction is not totally mutual, at least you’ll know and can move onto someone who’ll return your feelings. If you’re in—or considering—a long-distance relationship, book that flight and bridge the miles. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Come out of your cave—or your work silo—and mingle with the masses, Taurus! Or at least with that special friend you haven’t seen in way too long. Carve out some time today to send a few texts and relink with the people who always make you happy. With loving Venus pinging expansive Jupiter in your emotional zones, this will do you more good than a hot-stone massage! Even if your evening together is via FaceTime or WhatsApp, it’s infinitely better than NOT talking! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

It’s more important to get your message out there than it is to waste time polishing it to an unnecessarily high gloss. Today’s timing is perfect for connecting your head and heart and letting whatever you have to say rip. A congruous concord between eloquent Venus and candid Jupiter lines your tongue with silver AND bestows a hefty dose of diplomacy. Speak up while the iron’s hot, whether to a colleague, sibling or your amour du jour. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Less is definitely more today, Cancer, so take a minimalist’s delight in keeping it simple. Tempted to buy a big blooming bouquet? How about getting one perfect rose and placing it in an antique bottle? With your cosmic custodian, aesthetic Venus, in your practical second house forming a harmonious trine with Jupiter in your streamlined sixth, you’ll feel calmer in simple settings. This is also a good day to get something out in the open with your sweetie or current crush. Set aside your anxiety and speak your piece! See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Prepared to do a little gambling in the game of love, Leo? Today could be your lucky day, with optimistic Jupiter in your risk-taking corner aligned with love planet Venus in your sign. You can’t win if you don’t play, but do keep your head. With Jupiter here, it’ll be easy to get carried away with your emotions or inflate someone else’s reactions. But it’s also the planet of honesty, so if all else fails, just come right out and let this person know how you feel! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your soft side may be mushier than usual today, thanks to a combo of compassionate Venus in your intuitive twelfth house and boundless Jupiter in your domestic zone. Just listening to people’s stories could unleash the waterworks, so keep the tissues handy. It’s a good time to connect on a deep level with your closest friends since your heart will be open—and you might need a little support of the female variety. Don’t be afraid to open up: Trust is your best medicine! See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Tough love? Today you couldn’t dish that out if you tried, Libra! A soulful sync-up of compassionate Venus in your social zone and expansive Jupiter is more likely to trigger a tidal wave of unconditional love. If you’re just getting to know someone or a group, leave the emotional armor at home and “go commando.” Kick around ideas for creative collaborations and see where the synergies are. If you’re single—and looking to change that status—bear in mind that true love could start with a solid friendship. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Need to have a frank conversation about money? With enchanting Venus in your career corner sweetly aligned with expansive Jupiter in your financial sector, you’ll have cosmic wind in your sails. If you need to post about a special offer or cold-call someone, just screw up your nerve and do it. With Venus so well positioned in your chart, you’ll have the power to charm anyone. And thanks to the auspicious placement of Jupiter, you’ll be delightfully fearless. Where others see obstacles, you sense opportunity! See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

What are you looking for, Sag? All the answers you seek are out there! But if you’re only searching in a tiny area, you may not find them. Today, gracious Venus is hovering in your global ninth house AND making a perfect harmonious trine with limitless Jupiter in your sign. Widen your viewfinder, expand your search parameters, think so far outside the box you forget that boxes ever existed! This may involve literal travel or the figurative kind—i.e., found in the spiritual or digital universe. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You know that speech you’ve been rehearsing in your head (and your dreams) ad nauseam? Well, today’s starmap may finally pull it out of your brain, through your mouth and into the world! You’ve been keeping things light with your wicked sense of humor, but if you’re seeking intimacy, you need to allow yourself to be a little vulnerable. The good news is that today, as warm-hearted Venus and lucky Jupiter align in your sensitive houses, you’ll feel supported to take a leap of faith. Pick the perfect setting, whether that’s a quiet corner booth or your own kitchen table. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

While you want to make a good first impression (because you might not get a second chance), remember that appearances can be deceiving. Love is definitely in the air as confident Jupiter mashes up with the love planet herself—vixen Venus—in your partnership house. But are you holding yourself back by obsessing on your physicality and not putting enough trust in your adorably effervescent self? See for yourself what happens when you make eye contact and ask a question that pierces the surface straight away. See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Career opportunities abound, but don’t shift into workaholic mode, Pisces! Expansive Jupiter has been heating things up in your professional corner, yet today, the jovial planet aligns with balanced Venus in your wellness sector. Whether you’re feeling it or not, too much work will stress your system, and you need a healthy outlet to burn it off. But instead of doing the same old workout, mix it up with more fun and challenging routines—perhaps a high-energy dance class or power yoga in the park? See the full week >
