General Horoscope

We are happy to consider all the ways in which we can experience indulgent pleasures while the curious Gemini Moon encourages mental exploration. Sensual Venus forms a creative square to excessive Jupiter today, prompting us to overstep our normal limits. Unfortunately, too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily a good thing.

Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

Ignoring an intriguing opportunity isn’t your style, but you could be over-inundated with invitations that sound potentially rewarding now. You can’t stop people from sharing their big ideas with you when enriching Venus squares buoyant Jupiter in your 7th House of Others.

Not all that glitters is gold.


Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

Making time for guilty pleasures complicates your day, but that won’t likely prevent you from trying. You are longing for a taste of the sweetness of life while delicious Venus dynamically squares joyous Jupiter. Nevertheless, a whimsical fancy can grow into a distracting compulsion if you deny your needs. Ironically, it may not be necessary to turn your daydream into reality as long as you honor the existence of your cravings. Carl Jung wrote, “People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own souls.”


Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Thinking about a romantic liaison can hijack your morning, but following through might be more difficult than you expect. Oddly enough, what seemed so urgent earlier becomes lost in the busyness of the day. However, taking a break from the noise enables you to reconnect with the feelings you set aside. The Beatles sang, “Money can’t buy you love.” However, sometimes you have to go to Plan B. Making a special purchase of a beautiful work of art can also bring happiness to your heart.


Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

Love is on your mind today, but you don’t need fireworks or expensive gifts. Instead, you long for emotional security and it might feel like you can’t get enough of it while romantic Venus in your sign squares giant Jupiter. You’re treading through tricky territory once the Moon enters tenacious Cancer, tempting you to cling to someone you adore. Acknowledging your needs is crucial now, but acting on them is not.

Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

Although you often resort to dramatic gestures to demonstrate your affection, you may hold your feelings closer to your chest today.

Nevertheless, you are so energized that your emotions will be apparent to others, regardless of how determined you are to keep them hidden. Ultimately, there’s no reason to struggle; take a chance and reveal your heart. Rumi wrote, “With life as short as a half-taken breath, don’t plant anything but love.”


Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

Retrograde Mercury turns your thoughts inward as it travels through your 1st House of Personality.

Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

Your need to be recognized by your workmates may conflict with your wish to cultivate a personal relationship. Naturally, you want both but might have to choose one or the other because of demands on your time today. Professional responsibilities require so much attention that there is little energy left over for your friends and family. Your tendency now is to focus all your hopes on one area of your life and let the others fall to the wayside. Dolly Parton said, “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”


Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

There may be specific items on your bucket list that you’re ready to check off, but you’re reticent to share your plans with others yet.

Although your companions might not be aware of your intentions, you must be honest with yourself. C.S. Lewis wrote, “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”


Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Your friends are so supportive of your dreams now that it might feel as if the world is your oyster. Of course, it’s lovely when everything seems to be coming up roses, but it’s not so pretty when unspoken needs are left unfulfilled. Nevertheless, you can’t blame anyone other than yourself if you keep your desires secret from those closest to you. Share what’s in your heart. You’re always going to miss your chance if you never take a risk.


Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

It’s a sweet surprise when you learn that you’re on someone’s love radar today.
