Aries (March 20-April 19)
You love your quick-as-a-bunny role, just like The Tortoise & The Hare. The beautifully artistic vibes coming from today’s pairing of Venus and the Moon are in the earth sign Taurus. You’ll have to rein in your fire, slow your pace, and enjoy the beautiful things this multicolored tortoise can show you. Let all the love catch up to you. When the Taurus Moon reaches out to Messenger Mercury (9:36 PM, PDT ), you’ll want to talk about how much you care for someone.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Write yourself a love letter. Your patience, through all the weeks of fire predominating the astrological scene, is really paying off (it usually does). You have the goddess of love in your sign another 9 days, and today she is joined by the Moon at 12:27 PM, PDT. You’ll have charm dripping from your fingertips! And whether introvert or extrovert, you’ll want to party. Even though it’s back-to-work Monday, you can plan a walk around the park for lunchtime or a mid-afternoon tea and crumpets.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The artistic attunement flowing from today’s meeting of Venus with the Taurus Moon comes from a deeply inspirational place. For you, the always-thinking Gemini, this is the aspect of the beautiful mind. Although Venus is in the mood for a social gathering, you might prefer the company of a few old friends. Either way you need companionship and a sweet trip down memory lane, where you remember only the love you gave and that which was given you.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
It’s your day to be an artist of love. You have the ability to “feel” beauty and art, because you have a heightened aesthetic sense today. It’s a great day for romantic pursuits, success is almost guaranteed. Courtship and wooing come naturally because you have a loving sensitivity to each other, courtesy of Venus’ affectionate alliances with the emotional Moon and Messenger Mercury. You bless other people because you know you are blessed.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Time to exhale. The cosmos has downshifted to five major planets in earth signs, so you’ll only frustrate yourself if you don’t ease up. Today’s a happy Monday. Even if you are not ordinarily gregarious, today you'll be a people person. Capitalize on Venus’ charm and the Moon’s emotional warmth to be a great, diplomatic negotiator. The pace of connecting with others is high, and your day will be loaded with conversations. Use it to teach the loyalty of your Leo love.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Believe it or not, it’s a downright cheerful Monday morning. Why? The goddess of love is on the scene, encouraging you to be affectionate. Hugs and handholding are in. You could be involved in a lot of conversation today about social gatherings and get togethers, especially when the Taurus Moon strikes up a chat with Messenger Mercury around 9:36 PM, PDT. You feel frustrations drain away now that we have five planets in earth signs--a chance to put order to the chaos of recent weeks. You can win back the peace of mind that the capricious ego trampled on. Share it, so you know you have it.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
It’s a lovefest Monday. Your ruler and muse, Venus, is loaded with appreciation for the beautiful things in life. And of course she’s in the mood for a good time. The celestial atmosphere has tilted toward earth signs so you may feel uncharacteristically heavy. The remedy for you is staying out of seriousness, and away from jealousy. Otherwise, your mood is affectionate and loving. You come closer to your natural state when you give only love, for that is what you are.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Because of the depth and intensity of your Scorpio sign, you make one of the best spiritual teachers in the zodiac. Today you have Venus combining with the Taurus Moon (12:27 PM, PDT) in an opposites-attract polarity with your Sun. This may tempt you to overindulge your loved ones, and yourself. But what Venus wants you to offer is a lesson in cooperation and sharing, as a path to loving relationships. And that the one thing you can’t overdo is love.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You’ve probably felt the nervous tension lessening in your mind and body now that we have a predominance of planets in earth signs--the cosmos slows (somewhat) and settles. The loving vibes from Venus, conjoined with the Taurus Moon today, sends affection your way. Dig a shallow trench around your Sagittarian fire, so this tortoise-paced love can approach you without fear of burning. Relax, don't’ try to hold on to it. Remember, without anxiety your mind is wholly kind and wholly loving.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
You literally want to reach out and touch someone! This is an uncharacteristically happy Monday due to the perfect pairing of the goddess of love with the Taurus Moon around 12:27 PM, PDT. Venus warms your naturally cool reserve into an openly affectionate mood. You don’t want to be alone today. No solitary chores even though it’s Monday. You want to share your love, because by sharing you know you have it.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Today you feel gregarious like a social butterfly smothered in kisses. Venus make some affectionate alliances today. Even though they occur in Rock of Gibraltar earth signs, it’s still the goddess of love so how bad could it be? If you’re in the market for a new relationship, today’s Moon-Venus pairing (12:27 PM, PDT) could act as the trigger. If relationships are not a priority right now, you can use this energy to beautify your home, charm your neighbors. As with all Venus influences, it’s easy to overindulge, overspend, or overdo it. Excess may show up as lots of calls and emails when she hooks up with Messenger Mercury around 9:36 PM, PDT. Connecting. Today is all about alliances inspired by love.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
An easy affection permeates your mood this Monday morning. You’re feeling amorous, and maybe glamorous too! The Taurus Moon joined with Venus (12:27 PM, PDT) heightens your artistic ability because your emotions are infused with Venus’ love of beauty. Socializing is on the menu, as well as lots of messages when the goddess of love starts making calls around 9:36 PM, PDT. Today you can touch and feel your way through a canvas or a story--or the heart of another.
