Venus, the goddess of love and money, is in distracted, versatile Gemini today, and your curiosity leads you in many different directions. You love to talk to a diverse group of people, picking their brains for investment tips or maybe flirting just enough to figure out their dating situation. You never stay in one place too long, though, because your restless spirit tugs at you and reminds you to move along. There is so much more out there to see!
Later in the day, a Venus-Saturn trine adds some more realistic expectations to your energetic planetary portfolio and encourages you to take a steady approach to finding long-term solutions. An older person in your life can act as a mentor now, so look to an attentive parent, world-savvy sibling or wise teacher to help you focus on what’s important. Your interests are still varied, but you see the value in more practical viewpoints.
