Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesRecent weeks have been busier or more scattered than usual for you, dear Aries. Today, the Sun enters your family and home sector, stimulating a stronger need to focus, rest, restore your energy, and focus on activities that revolve around home, family, and heart. This month-long cycle is good for reconnecting with the need for inner peace and comfort, enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer activities, and for collecting your thoughts and centering yourself. Worldly ambitions tend to take a backseat now as you focus on your personal life and support systems–a vital mission! Building up inner strength and nurturing the self as well as loved ones are in the spotlight until July 22nd. Today, be sure to wind down, observe, and reflect. A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow, and it’s most natural to let go, tie up loose ends, and phase things out rather than begin anew.
TaurusThe Sun heads into your communications sector for a month-long visit, dear Taurus. Until July 22nd, there’s a bigger focus on learning, connecting, and communicating. It’s an excellent period for branching out, learning new things, satisfying your curiosity, and finding more satisfying ways to reach out to others. Your daily life can be especially busy now, often pleasantly so, although you might sometimes struggle with too much “noise” or a scattered feeling. This cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. It can be a great period for introducing more variety into your life and a strong time to diversify, learn about the people around you, and pick up new information or skills. You can be doing quite a bit of multi-tasking. A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow, making today better for winding down than for revving up. However, a Moon-Mars square can challenge this, so prepare yourself to consciously slow down and get the rest or time for reflection that you need.
GeminiThe Sun finishes its month-long transit of your sign today, dear Gemini. Its new cycle spotlights your sector of values, finances, comfort matters, personal possessions, and self-worth. Life is about settling in and making yourself both comfortable and secure in the coming four weeks. It’s a fine time for taking charge of your finances and valuables, but it’s also an excellent period for recognizing your own value! You take more pride in your ability to build and manage your life. You’ll now be pouring more energy and heart into stabilizing your life and putting ideas to work for you. It can also be a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Simple, pleasurable activities assume more importance in your life, and you may get the chance to establish yourself in a significant way. Focus more on what you have than what you want, and you’ll be in great shape this month. A Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow, making today an important time for observation rather than new beginnings, even though the Moon in your sign inclines you to crave fresh experiences.
CancerThe Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit of your sign today, dear Cancer. Tomorrow, a Solar Eclipse will occur in Cancer, and this is an important time for considering resolutions for the year ahead. You have more power than usual to consider changes that truly improve your life. Until July 22nd, you’re more inclined to take mindful action. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get yourself together. In the weeks ahead, you more readily attract what you need into your life. You’re making a strong statement whether you intend to or not, and it can be a good period to update your personal presentation in ways that boost your confidence. It’s appropriate to focus on your personal needs and goals at this time of year. Today, on this day before the New Moon in your sign, some reflection is in order. Part of you might resist this with the Moon’s square to Mars, but it’s in your best interests to wind down just for now.
LeoThe Sun heads into your solar twelfth house today for a month-long stay, dear Leo. In the weeks ahead, you can experience a greater need for a break from competitive energies or demanding situations. Restful, relaxing, and healing activities are strong draws. You seem to need more frequent periods devoted to reflection and processing recent developments. During this cycle that extends to July 22nd, it’s very appropriate to tie up loose ends and to consider ways to cleanse, heal, and repair your mind and emotions. Recognize the power of some solitude or more quiet time for best results now. There can be a tidy-up, of sorts, on an emotional, spiritual, or mental level. Emerging now is the need to look back, reflect, and reconsider before moving forward with personal plans. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course.
VirgoThe Sun begins its transit of your sector of friendships, dreams, and wishes today, dear Virgo. With this influence, the month ahead brings more sociable, experimental, and hopeful energy into your life. You take more interest than usual in your friendships, connections, community involvement, or aspirations, and associates or friends may look to you for direction. Sharing ideals or visions with others gives you a boost, and you get more satisfaction than usual when your actions positively impact others. You are less concerned with career or life plan goals, preferring to focus on what makes you happy and how you contribute to the world. It’s a period for planting “seeds” in the form of ideas, dreams, and hopes. Benefits come from recognizing your need for others. Your social conscience or sense of responsibility increases in the weeks ahead. Today, you may be doing some looking back and processing of recent events with a Solar Eclipse set to occur tomorrow.
LibraThe Sun enters your reputation and career sector, dear Libra, and will stick around this area of your solar chart until July 22nd. You are more goal-oriented at this time of year and especially invested in your performance, responsibilities, accomplishments, and image. This might be about taking more pride in the fulfillment of your duties. Your motivation to succeed can strengthen. Others are noticing your work or your accomplishments, which can encourage you to connect with your responsible, competent side. You could find yourself in higher demand than usual, and you become more aware of the impact you’re making. This transit brings new energy to your career or public life, and this is particularly the case after tomorrow’s New Moon Solar Eclipse in the same sector. Later today and tomorrow, fight self-doubt but do some healthy reflecting before pushing forward.
ScorpioThe Sun begins its transit of your spirit, learning, and adventure sector today, dear Scorpio. Until July 22nd, the desire to break the usual routine and engage your mind and spirit is strong. It’s a cycle in which you seek ways to feel and be free. Activities that expand your mind and experiences tend to be a bigger draw now. Focusing on the big picture helps free you from taking smaller problems as seriously. There can be a stronger focus on studies, a special interest or course, publishing, and sharing ideas. A Solar Eclipse occurs in this same sector tomorrow, and it’s best to take your time. Still, enjoy the increasing motivation to improve, express yourself, and learn. Today, you’ll benefit from further observation and strategy. Keep an open mind and schedule with tomorrow’s New Moon set to redirect you.
SagittariusWith the Sun heading into your solar eighth house today for a month-long visit, dear Sagittarius, the coming weeks spotlight your ability to share and blend with a partner or to better understand yourself as you face the need to improve, change, and transform. There can be a focus on financial matters and shared resources and alternate sources of income. You can be especially attracted to experiences that take you out of your comfort zone. Sharing on intimate and financial levels, personal empowerment, attachments, and deep emotions are themes of this area of the chart, and a Solar Eclipse will occur in this sector tomorrow. New approaches are in order, and in the coming days and weeks, you’ll see areas that need special attention. During this cycle that lasts until July 22nd, you’re more interested in digging deep than skimming the surface of things. You take more notice of the hidden elements of circumstances and people around you.
CapricornThe day brings a new solar cycle, dear Capricorn, with the Sun’s move into your solar seventh house for a month-long visit. The weeks ahead put the spotlight on your one-to-one relationships, whether personal or business or both. Or, it motivates you to seek a healthy sense of balance in your life through a different perspective. You’re more aware of imbalances and eager to make changes to restore order to your life. Your increased ability to compromise and negotiate brings rewards, and you stand to learn a lot through your relationships. The Solar Eclipse that occurs tomorrow happens in this same sector of your solar chart, prompting you to explore issues surrounding togetherness and independence in the weeks ahead. For now, you may be reviewing the past and coming to important conclusions. It’s best to wind down, reflect, and observe with today’s Balsamic Moon.
AquariusThe Sun begins its transit of your solar sixth house today, dear Aquarius, and will continue to influence this area of your chart until July 22nd. Your daily routines, health and wellness efforts, and work or chores come into stronger focus during this period. Schedules, routines, and organization in your life assume more importance, making this a great time to take care of details that help get your life into smoother working order. It’s an important time to improve or begin new routines that focus on getting yourself into better form. New realizations or circumstances can arise that motivate you to lead a healthier, more organized, and more productive life. It’s an excellent month for lifestyle changes, particularly after tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse. Today, it’s better to wind down, observe, reflect, and consider resolutions you might make for these life departments.
PiscesThe Sun heads into your solar fifth house today, dear Pisces, prompting a month-long cycle that spotlights creative self-expression, pleasure, entertainment, and romance. The weeks ahead are good for enjoying creative interests and finding new avenues for expressing yourself. Pastimes, hobbies, romance, and recreation are in stronger focus. A more spontaneous, playful, and affectionate approach to your life comes more naturally. You might begin or revitalize special projects. It’s a time for celebrating and expressing your talents, abilities, and affections. You’re more inclined to show others what you can do and to enjoy life’s pleasures. The Solar Eclipse tomorrow points to the need to wind down rather than rev up just for the time being. It’s better to reflect and consider resolutions for improving your attention to pursuing your joy.
