Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Collaboration, not competition, can ease a situation that’s edging toward stuckness today. Even though amiable Venus is getting shaded by obstinate Saturn in your ambition zone, lean in to her wise diplomacy to strike the perfect compromise. Contrary to what you—or others—may think, this is not a black-and-white situation. There are, if not 50, several shades of gray, and one is sure to be a crowd pleaser. If you’re on a high horse, dismount and open up a discussion to see what the other party’s bottom line is. Consensus may be closer than you thought. See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

Don’t just THINK outside the box today, Bull: Do everything a little differently. While there’s nothing wrong with being pragmatic, you don’t want to get so inured in your routines that you get stuck in a rut. With master teacher Saturn hovering in your adventurous ninth house and opposing your ruler, creative Venus, you could blow your own mind by mingling with different crowds and doing something you’ve never done before. You don’t need a tandem skydive to get the adrenaline flowing. A spur-of-the-moment ticket purchase for an after-work event or excursion through a neighborhood street fair could permanently broaden your horizons before you go to sleep. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Some of your fiercely held opinions might come up for review under today’s challenging opposition of judgmental Saturn and fair-minded Venus in your second house of values. Luckily, your “mutable” sign doesn’t usually get too hung up on doing or believing things just because you always have. New people or ideas may wander into your sight line and dare you to see the world just a little differently. Give someone half a chance to express themselves, and you might be pleasantly surprised by what they have to say. (And with amorous Venus in the picture—and Saturn in your seductive eighth house—things could progress from philosophical to frisky in just a few heartbeats.) See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Power struggle alert! You’ve been hosting beautifying Venus in your sign since July 3, and hopefully you’ve been absorbing some valuable teachings (like the importance of loving yourself!). But today, the planet of amour is forming a tense opposition to restrictive Saturn in your relationship realm. One or both of you may be jockeying for more control, perhaps out of fear that the other’s eye is wandering. But rather than resort to lowly tactics—which never work out the way you hope—why not lay your concerns on the table and talk about them? If your love life could use a reboot, discuss possible solutions instead of harping on the problems. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Got big plans for a professional power move or perhaps a home-improvement project you want to get off the ground? It’s is a great day to start, but before you dive in, get a handle on everything that’s needed. What materials and tools are required; have you done all the proper measuring; how long will this take, and what routines will be disrupted in the interim? Nailing down these and other details can spell the difference between a smoothly executed mission and a major snafu. Forget about winging it: With structured Saturn in your detail-minded sixth house barking orders at dreamy Venus, you’re reminded that form follows function. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Don’t be too quick to raise your hand to volunteer your services. While your helpful sign actually enjoys supporting others, you need to put numero uno first! Today, Venus in compassionate Cancer and your community center may get the urge to play Lyft driver for a coworker or grocery-shop for a sick friend. But boundary hound Saturn, who’s busy guarding the fort, smells trouble. Some people, when given an inch, will try to finagle a mile, and the next thing you know, there goes your workday! Not only do you have your own assignments to complete, but by stepping in for the “save,” you might prevent someone from learning an important lesson on their own. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You won’t be satisfied with getting a job DONE; you need it to be visually perfect. If you’re willing to loosen up your standards a smidge, then you could achieve your goal by EOD, Libra. Your heavenly advocate, creative Venus, is lighting fires in your tenth house of professional success. You don’t have to sweat and connive to be recognized: People are taking notice. So don’t worry about following others’ ideas; originality is what’s called for here. Just watch out for an obsession with status and prestige. Because Venus is locked in an opposition with goal-oriented Saturn, you could dilute the purity of your vision. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

When Venus in your truth-seeking ninth house opposes tough-love-master Saturn today, a relationship may hold a mirror up to some unconscious behavior. In this harsh light, you’ll be forced to look at something you’re not terribly proud of. But don’t be too hard on yourself—or flip straight into denial mode. Everyone has a “shadow side,” and it’s only when we acknowledge it and look at how it might be undermining our best efforts that we overcome our greatest challenges. If you can find a way to be grateful for being shown your own blind spot, your entire relationship with this person (and maybe yourself) could change in a heartbeat. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You may not feel like your usual outgoing, spontaneous self today because of a brake-tapping opposition between vixen Venus in your intimacy zone and cautious Saturn in your security sector. While the love planet is ready to dive into a budding relationship or take your current one to the next level, the planet of structure and caution is flashing all kinds of yellow lights. You might be feeling a little gun-shy about everything from money to love. Don’t get hung up on things having to be “perfect” or a totally safe bet. Life is about taking risks, and like with the lottery, you can’t win if you don’t play. Down a shot of Sagittarian courage and take at least a baby step toward the object of your desire.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

It’s easy to point fingers and assign blame, but under today’s edgy starmap, you’d be better off looking in the mirror than hurling accusations. Peaceful Venus is touring your partnership corner, but your ruling planet, critical Saturn—in your sign—is throwing her major shade. You might believe to your core that you’re in the right and that your actions (or demands) are warranted. But this transit prompts you to look at things from the other party’s point of view. Even if you’re not willing to concede, just imagine that their position is closer to reality. For the sake of the relationship, can you take the high road and at least agree to disagree? See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

As the 12-Step saying goes, You’re only as sick as your secrets. Keeping them locked up can undermine an important relationship or potentially derail a budding partnership. While you may be tempted to hold a certain piece of intel to yourself, in the long run that might not prove the soundest strategy. Karmic Saturn is touring your twelfth house of hidden agendas—plus it’s locked in an opposition to fair-minded Venus. The message is pretty clear: Anything that’s not brought out into the open could boomerang. Sure, you COULD get away with this, but will the guilty feelings be worth it? See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re not one to make waves just for the sake of rocking the boat, but if you’re working on a collaborative project and suddenly find yourself out of sync with the others, you won’t be able to bite your tongue. Dilemma alert: Pointing out an untenable condition can delay progress. With people-pleasing Venus in opposition to straight-shooter Saturn in your group-activities center, you may need to do a little soul-searching: Speak up and potentially ruin the project, or accept an objectionable situation? But hey Pisces, perhaps you’re not the only one having second thoughts. If you run it up the flagpole, you could rally others around you in support. See the full week >
