Today’s cosmic alignment brings emotional turbulence as Pluto faces off with Venus.
So, it’s no wonder the signs are feeling the tension.
March 21 to April 20
Things may not be easy if you and another clash concerning a goal or plan. Venus’s angle to Pluto suggests that conversations might be intense, and emotions could flare up too. You may be better off to wait until another day when the mood is lighter and brighter. Mind, with Venus also in the harmonious sign of Libra, there is always the possibility that you can compromise.
April 21 to May 21
Tired of the same old routine, Taurus? Perhaps if you had something different to occupy your days you’d be so much happier. And yet a few small changes might allow you to make the most of your present situation. With Venus squaring Pluto, there may be one thing you could do that seems minor, but might lead to you taking on a welcome and uplifting challenge.
May 22 to June 21
It could be so easy to manipulate a situation to your advantage or to allow another to steer you in a direction you’re reluctant to go. With Venus facing-off with Pluto, the urge to force matters is strong. Yet doing so likely won’t do you much good, Gemini. Whether you’re keen to get a romance off the ground or an entrepreneurial idea, it’s better to let things unfold naturally.
June 22 to July 23
You may prefer to be in everyone’s good books, but sometimes it just isn’t possible. You might feel bad for standing up for yourself. But if you don’t, someone will get what they want, and you’ll just have to deal with the consequences. Need to make a bold request? Don’t seem too desperate or needy. Act as if you don’t really care, and you may get access to it much faster.
July 24 to August 23
Your mindset and thoughts about difficult issues can impact your body, which you might notice under the current intense sky. If you feel out of sorts, this may be why. Instead of making yourself even more anxious, do something that will help you relax. If you have the opportunity, a massage could be a great way to ease any knotty muscles, or a gentle walk might help too.
August 24 to September 23
Venus’s angle with Pluto could ramp up the tension around a decision that’s linked to leisure or romance. Perhaps you’re wondering whether to invest in a hobby you’ve just become crazy about, or you could be weighing up the pros and cons of a new relationship and whether it’s worth it. You may even be obsessed with someone or something, yet torn about what to do next.
September 24 to October 23
Is someone leaning on you when they’re quite capable of handling matters themselves? If so, a powerful angle could be a call to cut those cords and encourage this person to be more self-sufficient. Being a Libra, you’ll go about this in a very diplomatic way, and may even suggest a compromise until they get on their feet. But if this is a big strain, don’t drag it out for too long.
October 24 to November 22
Keeping information to yourself may seem like a good way to turn a situation to your advantage. But what if someone is playing you at your own game? No matter how much you discuss an issue it won’t get you anywhere. If neither of you are willing to be honest, how can it? If you want a matter to move forward Scorpio, then one of you is going to have to tell the truth.
November 23 to December 21
You could feel uptight and even jealous, if a friend shows you something that you’d love to have for yourself. It might even blight your weekend, if you let it. The emotional Venus/Pluto angle may leave you riled. Is it worth getting annoyed? The chances are that if you did get it, you might not enjoy it as much as you thought, and end up feeling it’s a waste of money.
December 22 to January 21
It’s easy to get the wrong end of the stick today, as Venus squares off with Pluto in your sign. You may be convinced that someone has it in for you, when they might be just pointing out how something could be improved. This can be a boss, authority figure or client. If so, try not to take their words personally. Instead, try their suggestion as it may work out well, Capricorn.
January 22 to February 19
Have big plans but little faith that you can accomplish them? A potent aspect may be a call not to let your limitations box you in. A dynamic focus encourages you to branch out and try new things, even if doing so is a bit of a stretch. And yet you might feel that leaving your comfort zone is one move too far. Don’t overthink this Aquarius, just take a small step and go from there.
February 20 to March 20
With Venus aligning with Pluto, someone may be drawn to discuss an issue with you that they’re unable to talk about to anyone else. There’s something about your calm acceptance and non-judgemental approach that is attractive to those in trouble. Try not to soak up their words and take them to heart. Listen, and let it wash over you so you can get on with your day, Pisces.
