Some signals can cross today, dear Aries, as Venus stations and turns direct after six weeks of retrograde motion. Changes are in the works, and they’re strengthening ones, but the shift itself can fog things up just for now. Over the coming weeks, you’ll find more satisfaction in your projects, studies, communications, or a transportation matter that met with delays but now resumes or straightens out. Some communication mix-ups or computer problems can come to a resolution, although Mercury’s retrograde that began on the 18th can be the source of other slowdowns. Relationship and money matters might move forward and feel lighter or more satisfying. You focus less frequently on the past and more on where you’re going. You might recognize a line of study, personal interest, or another “calling” that’s a better fit for you. Ideally, you gain a better understanding of your financial situation. You might find missing objects, money, or areas of weakness in a budget. Take your time for best results, particularly with Venus still slow and Mercury retrograde. Avoid situations that require judgments of value today if this is possible. Later today holds good energy for harmonizing with family or solving a practical problem.
Your ruling planet, Venus, ends its retrograde phase today, dear Taurus, and you’re likely to feel clearer and more confident in the weeks ahead. Ideally, the last six weeks have helped you gain a better understanding of your needs and wants. You’re now looking at yourself, your personal goals, and your image in a different light, helping you to make more informed decisions going forward. You may feel that you’re given second chances or picking up the pieces. Life seems a little easier when you know what’s in your heart. There can be some nice opportunities to enjoy new interests or take a fresh look at old problems in the upcoming days and weeks. Financial problems, delayed income or projects, and confusion over property can clear. Who or what you’re attracting into your life can change gears now. Relationships tend to be more predictable. Even so, the change itself can intensify problems temporarily, or at least we perceive things in this vein. It’s best not to make or break commitments while this shift is occurring, so be sure to take your time. In the second half of today, you may feel more determined, engaged, and ready to share your happiness.
Venus ends its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Gemini. Because this phase has occurred in your sign, it’s been a little more personal for you. You can be a little cautious with your heart for a while longer, but you’ll slowly get back on track in the areas of pleasure, comfort, and love. Even so, Mercury has just recently (a week ago) turned retrograde, and you can expect to do some more looking back before you see clear progress, particularly in areas related to money and personal resources. In the coming weeks, you’ll get some second chances with others and plenty of time to enjoy yourself. You’re clearer about who or what you want. Personal appeal increases. Matters that have challenged you in recent weeks may resolve, and stuck areas of your life can unclog and move forward. You are clearer about which projects you should advance and which may have run their course. Keep in mind that today’s shifts can be disorienting, and some ambiguity is likely just as you grow accustomed to the shift.
After six weeks of retrograde motion, Venus turns direct today, dear Cancer. This shift helps clarify your feelings, although the shift itself can generate some confusion. Complicated relationships or feelings can start making sense, and the road ahead seems to be a little more certain. Matters that have left you on the fence or that have stalled begin to push forward. A decision about a matter of the past now may seem easier to make–it may even become irrelevant. There could be a resolution to feelings of being stuck in the past or hung up on a matter/relationship that’s no longer viable. As with all stations, whether it’s a shift to retrograde or direct, it’s not an ideal time to make or break commitments. Ease into this new direct phase for the best results. As well, Mercury remains retrograde in your sign until July 12th. As such, you can enjoy progress on certain fronts, particularly related to your friendships and home life, and some apparent backtracking in other areas. You now enjoy a better understanding of what and who you like, as well as how you genuinely feel about your relationships and pastimes. Allow your mind to catch up with your heart before pushing ahead, and you’ll be in good shape now.
Venus has been retrograde for the last six weeks, dear Leo, and turns direct today. Changes are in the air, and they are positive ones, but your perceptions are unclear as the shift occurs now, so take your time before coming to any concrete conclusions. In the coming weeks, emotional entanglements or complicated feelings and friendships are likely to clear up. There can be significant improvements or clarity in your social life. Ideally, you’ve gained valuable insight into your friendships, goals, and level of satisfaction with your connections. Some areas of life, mostly related to your reputation, relationships, and pleasure, begin to clear or unclog. Delays lift, answers arrive for some questions, and life goes on. Keep in mind that Mercury remains retrograde, and while some matters are moving forward, other blockages or delays are ongoing. There can be small delays and problems to manage, but you’re feeling more confident about your feelings and affections.
While you seem to be reorienting yourself early today and this takes energy, dear Virgo, you’re rebuilding as the day advances. You’ll enjoy experimenting with or entertaining new ideas and methods. The Moon heads into your partnership sector, and your need for others in general (or someone in particular) increases. There can be beneficial interchanges with a partner or good counsel that refreshes or relieves you. You might enjoy showing your appreciation for someone in your life. Rolling with the changes feels good. The key to success today seems to adapt to others’ needs, giving less attention to your own needs without ignoring them. An interpersonal problem may resolve now, or there is more openness to your interactions. The healing and compassionate sides of life are in stronger focus.
The helpful and nurturing side of your nature is called upon today, dear Libra. Feeling good about your home life is a desire or theme now, and if you’re feeling discontented, you’re especially motivated to make changes and improvements. The Moon aligns with expansive Jupiter in your home and family sector, encouraging special attention to these matters. You recognize the qualities and habits that support or delay your growth. You can be dreaming up long-term, master plans for a business or home, or you’re inclined to focus on making your current living conditions more joyful. You’re seeking a stronger sense of belonging or connectedness, and it’s a great time to get in touch with any needs and desires you’ve suppressed. Later today, the Moon enters your sector of joy, and then promptly aligns with Saturn there. You’re attracted to spending time doing productive things, finding it soothing and satisfying. You can have great success working on a creative project or refining a skill, studying, or adding structure or form to a project.
The Moon joins with generous Jupiter in your communications sector today, dear Scorpio, helping to boost your mood and sunny up your disposition. You’re in terrific shape for guiding, connecting, and learning and warmth can figure strongly in your interactions. Your ideas and kindness are a big draw. It’s important to watch for overloading your schedule with Jupiter involved since its optimism can lead to a sense that you can handle more than is reasonable. You have a fabulous ability to show others where there’s common ground. You might also be feeling very enthusiastic about a project, idea, or interest. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector for a couple of days, meeting Saturn. You’re likely to focus on the practical side of your domestic world or personal life. This transit puts the spotlight on your needs for safety, security, and familiarity. Gather your strength rather than exhaust yourself or scatter your energies now for best results. Because you’re more sensitive than usual, seek positive or calming atmospheres.
You may want to immerse yourself in a project or a person today, dear Sagittarius, but practical responsibilities that need more immediate attention can challenge this. Still, this brief blockage may strengthen your resolve to work things through. Fortunately, a Sun-Chiron aspect active today helps balance things out. You are standing out from the crowd, particularly on creative and romantic levels. It’s a fine time to believe in your abilities and quietly go about your tasks. A partner or friend could point you in the direction of creative change and inspiration. Sharing activities, ideas, and entertainment with people you care about can be especially healing and could help cement a bond. People are attracted to your more unique qualities and talents. It’s a good time to recognize your vulnerabilities and work with them in positive ways. Avoid worrying about your abilities and simply do your best and enjoy yourself for best results now.
The more open and generous your approach today, dear Capricorn, the more rewards seem in the offing. A Sun-Jupiter trine helps you see the benefits of current projects and boosts your outlook, in general. There may be a romantic attraction that motivates you. You’re interested in growing and improving in your creative pursuits and connections, as staying the same doesn’t appeal. Your best self shines through in what you’re doing, and the day has every potential to be empowering. You’re likely to crave a change of pace or a break from the usual routine. You may be teaching in some capacity now, or you could be learning something new and different that’s inspiring. A new channel for expressing yourself might open up, and a surge of enthusiasm brightens your day and your vision of the future. Later today, a Mercury-Jupiter aspect comes into play, and routine tasks are unlikely to satisfy you. Your mind is wandering, or you’re dealing with a multitude of distractions. You may be seeking a higher purpose or something more satisfying related to work or routines and habits. While there can be some difficulties prioritizing, if you let go of this need, you’ll be in fine shape.
This can be a fine day for cooperating with others, dear Aquarius, and good feelings tend to be reciprocated. There is a strong sense of mutual harmony and a general boost in feelings of peace and security with and through others. Still, you’re seeking a little more meaning from your pursuits or relationships than usual today, and you’re happy to see signs of improvement and growth. It’s a good time for tapping into your intuition. Radiating an expectation of success with people you love does wonders for you now, but so can some introspection. Later today, a Mercury-Jupiter influence suggests you may have too much information to make the bigger decisions, or the news you receive now is missing key points or is misleading. You’ll feel less stress if you let go of the need to find definitive answers today. Enjoyable activities are most relieving.
Today’s good for dreaming up big ideas that help boost your confidence, dear Pisces, particularly on social levels and related to your interests or studies. It’s a fine time for gaining trust or developing and growing a relationship or even a project. The Sun in your communications sector harmonizes with Jupiter in your social sector, and conversations are generous, open, and meaningful, although somewhat meandering later today. Networking can bring rewards or opportunities. You are more invested in your relationships today, and it makes sense to approach your day with an open mind and heart. A Mercury-Jupiter aspect also active today suggests that you may have too much to think about to the point of stress, perhaps related to your personal/home life or friendships. Meaningful, spirited conversations are favored over small talk, which can fall short right now
