When the moon opposes Venus today at 5:09 AM EDT, our need for love and affection is magnified. If you’re single, this means a heightened feeling of loneliness that you’ll try to soothe with friends or with casual dating. If you’re in a committed relationship, this might mean seeking comfort and affection from your partner, who might not be able to return it.
Wondering how your sign could navigate these celestial motions today? Read more below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries, you’re feeling like showing love for your partner and loved ones by spoiling them with the most expensive, luxurious gifts. However, you might find yourself doubling back when you start to feel like the effort only goes one way, because love is a two-way street—you keep spoiling others, but who does the same for you? If you’ve been feeling like this toward your partner for quite some time now, the Moon opposing Venus might even heighten this feeling. Don’t let it turn into resentment, dear ram. You’ve always been honest, and perhaps it’s time to channel your honesty towards communicating what you need to your loved ones so it stops feeling one-sided.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, you’ve always worn your heart out on your sleeve. Every time you develop romantic feelings for another, you’re always quick to pursue them. Fortune favors the bold, and this is why it’s always favored you. You always show your love to others in a multitude of ways, because you don’t ever want someone you love feeling like you don’t love them. However, when Venus saunters toward your 1st house in opposition of the Moon, you realize you haven’t been giving yourself the same amount of love or attention. It’s time to channel this love energy inwards, Taurus. Treat yourself to your favorite restaurants, buy some books at your favorite local bookstore, and shower yourself the love and attention you so deserve.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
As the Moon settles in your 6th house, your love language today is acts of service, Gemini, and you’re showing yourself some love by getting things done. You’re completing work backlogs, cleaning your desk, washing your sheets, and buying yourself groceries. You’re affording yourself guilt-free time for relaxation by doing everything you need first. But when Venus in your 12th house goes in opposition with the Moon, you wonder if you should be doing the same for others. In your quest to take care of yourself, have you been doing the same for others? Don’t get so caught up in work and personal responsibilities that you forget your responsibility to take care of your loved ones, Gemini. Don’t let them feel like you don’t have time anymore by paying attention to them now.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You just need somebody to love, Cancer, when the Moon falls into your 5th house of love and romance. Whether you’re single or committed, you know you have so much love in your heart and you’re aching to give them to a romantic partner that when you get rejected, it’ll feel so helpless for you to have so much love in your heart but no one to give it to. When Venus visits your 11th house of friendships, she gently whispers to you to give it to your friends. Even without romance, love can exist, and you might find some benefit toward showing your friends some love today.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, the Moon in your 4th house lets you know that love is stronger when it starts from the roots, which is why you’re going back home and channeling family energy into your love life right now. You want your partner to feel at home any time they’re with you, so you listen to their worries and give them everything they need. However, when Venus in your 10th house goes in opposition with Luna, you realize that you also have needs outside of the home. Being loved by family isn’t enough, you want to be respected at work as well. You’ll work hard to make a name for yourself, to further your career, and to be a good leader at work. You might find it hard to find some balance between the two, but so long as you’re not forgetting to take care of yourself, you’re all good, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Your deep-seated beliefs are getting challenged today, Virgo, when the Moon in your 3rd house goes in opposition with Venus in your 9th house. With love, you’ve always been a skeptic. You’ve never believed in unconditional love, or perhaps you don’t believe you deserve such a kind of love. Maybe you’ve always had to bargain parts of yourself to get the love that you need, but this isn’t the case anymore, Virgo. Someone—whether this is a friend or romantic interest—will show you that you deserve to be loved with no conditions. You just have to be yourself. This will seem too good to be true, but don’t entirely close yourself off to the possibility. The only way you’ll get the love you need is if you let yourself receive it, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, when the Moon takes a stroll in your 2nd house of money, you’re inclined to believe that you need to show yourself some love by giving you everything you want, so you haplessly tap on that check out button as you empty your online shopping cart and, consequently, your bank account as well. When Venus in your 8th house meets the moon in opposition, you’re reminded that self-love also means self-control. You need to save for the rainy days as well, especially with the oncoming Mercury retrograde in April. Love isn’t only sweet when you give it to yourself through material possessions, it’s also sweeter shared with your loved ones.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
Scorpio, your mind drifts between loving yourself and getting the love you need from your relationships when the Moon in your 1st house goes in opposition with Venus in your 7th house. You might have been convincing yourself that self-love is enough. After all, it’s Mama Ru who said that you can’t love someone else if you can’t love yourself, right? Well, you’re still not entirely convinced. Perhaps it’s the other way around, you think. Perhaps you can only learn to love yourself when you already know how to love others first. You think of how you treat your best friend, your pet, or a significant other—-if you loved yourself the way you love them, you think maybe you’ll learn to love yourself better. Both have some truth to it, so don’t drive yourself crazy choosing between the two, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, the Moon in your 12th house makes you want to shower your loved ones with all the love they deserve today. You want to cook for them, to clean for them, or maybe ease the burden off their shoulders by simply existing. When Venus in your 6th house goes in opposition with the Moon, you wonder if you should afford yourself the same type of love, and you will be right. So give yourself the love you deserve by clearing your task list, cooking your favorite food, and restocking on your groceries, Sagittarius, and I’m sure your future self will thank you.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, the Moon in your 11th house makes you feel incredibly grateful for your good friends. They’re there when you need them, when you need your worries heard, and when you’re looking for a shoulder to cry on…but there’s just something missing. Venus going in opposition with the Moon in your 5th house of romance makes you realize that that missing thing is someone who will hold your hand as you go through life’s ups and downs. Someone who will get you so effortlessly, whom you could come home to at the end of every tiring day. Don’t wait, Capricorn. It’s not true that love only comes when you don’t look for it.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’ve always wanted to make a name for yourself, Aquarius, and the Moon in your 10th house of career amplifies your ambitions. This motivates you to break a leg at work, to keep working until you reach your goals and more. However, when it meets Venus in opposition in your 4th house of home and family, you’re reminded not to forget about your loved ones as you work towards your goals, to not get so tunnel-visioned about work that you forget about the finer things in life and everything else that matters. The best thing you can do is find the perfect work-life balance, Aquarius, and everything shall be fine.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, you’ve always been starry-eyed. You like exploring different beliefs and cultures, knowing that there’s no absolute truth that should define all of humanity. It’s this open mind that makes you so lovable to others, dear Pisces. However, when Venus in your 3rd house opposes the Moon, you find yourself questioning this belief. Perhaps it’s better for you to be stricter and not to see the good in others all the time so they don’t take advantage of you. While it’s always better to keep an open mind, you’re now trying to find ways to insulate yourself from getting damaged by others. While it is a sad truth that we must be wary of those who try to take advantage of us, don’t let yourself be so wary that you lose that childish wonder, Pisces.
