Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
The Sun enters your home and family sector today, dear Aries, and will spend the coming month here at the bottom of your solar chart. Worldly ambitions tend to take a backseat now as you focus on feeling secure and content in your personal life–a vital mission! This transit stimulates a stronger need to get back in touch with family and enjoy activities revolving around the home. You may be reconnecting with a deep need for inner peace and comfort, enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer pursuits. Building up inner strength and nurturing the self as well as loved ones are in the spotlight until July 22nd. It can be a time for stepping into your comfort zone! Today, however, is rather sociable in flavor. You have a taste for the different, new, and progressive.
The Sun moves into the communications sector of your solar chart today, dear Taurus, transiting here until July 22nd, and the coming month should be a busy one. You’re more engaged with others but not always focused. You’re taking special pride and interest in your environment, communications, and interactions, making it an excellent time to boost your connections and projects. This cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing, but it’s a key one for gathering intel and exploring new interests or developing skills. Today, you’re perhaps a little more ambitious than usual, and you’re especially aware of what others expect of you with the Moon transiting the top of your solar chart. You’re likely to have someone very much in your corner when you need it most.
The Sun ends its yearly transit of your sign today, moving forward into your sector of values and resources where it will spend a month, dear Gemini. You’ll now be pouring more energy and heart into stabilizing your life and putting ideas to work for you. Until July 22nd, money and possessions, comfort, sensual enjoyment, and simple, pleasurable activities assume more importance in your life. You may get the chance to take better charge of your money or care of your valuables, develop your resources, and establish yourself in a significant way. This can also be a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Today, however, is suitable for breaking out of your usual routine and adding just a dash of adventure to your life.
The Sun begins its yearly, month-long visit to your sign today, dear Cancer, and you’re at a personal peak of sorts. You are more inclined to take mindful action rather than only react to what is going on around you. Remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that truly improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. You are more readily attracting what you need into your life now. Even so, the Moon spends the day in your intimacy sector, and you’re in a reflective mood. Today is useful for finding ways to satisfy both your need for familiarity and comfort or family and your desire for adventure and discovery.
The Sun begins its transit of the most private, tucked away sector of your solar chart, dear Leo, and will stay there until July 22nd. This is a period for a tidy-up on an emotional, spiritual, or mental level. Emerging now is the need to look back, reflect, and reconsider before you move forward with personal plans. This yearly month-long cycle is natural for some helpful introspection. Goals may not be apparent or could need some refinement. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come, but also reflecting upon recent events and shedding attitudes and situations that have run their natural course. With the Moon in your partnership sector today, however, you’re inclined to seek out company, and you do quite well in pairs!
Today the Sun enters your sector of friendships, wishes, and hopes, dear Virgo, and will continue to visit this house of your solar chart until July 22nd. This cycle stimulates your need to connect with people who share common aspirations, or it serves to reignite the flame of your own goals and hopes. Being part of a team or group effort can be especially satisfying now. You are less concerned with career or life plan goals now, and increasingly interested in what makes you happy, and what you are contributing to the world. You are entertaining more progressive ideas these days, and people are looking upon you quite favorably. Today is good for detail work and organizing. Family may be especially supportive now, or you can feel inspired to boost home life.
Professional and public matters can be in stronger focus in the coming month, dear Libra, with the Sun entering your reputation and career sector today. Mercury and Mars are already in this area of your solar chart. You are more goal-oriented at this time of year, and primarily focused on (or invested in) your performance, responsibilities, accomplishments, image, and life-path goals. Your motivation to succeed can strengthen. Others are noticing your work or your achievements, making it wise to show your more responsible, competent side. Today, however, is a day for a smooth flow of creativity and pleasing communications. You seem to be able to express yourself and come off the way you intend–or better.
The Sun begins transiting your adventure sector today, dear Scorpio, and until July 22nd, the desire to break the usual routine and engage your mind and spirit is strong. Seeing the big picture helps to free you from taking small problems too seriously. In the month ahead, the more adventurous and exploratory side of your nature emerges, and it’s time for a change of scenery, whatever that means to you! Today, however, the Moon spends another day in your home and family sector, and the desire to settle in and seek out comforting, grounding, and familiar activities is strong. A right balance between alone time and moments of sharing would be ideal and quite possible now.
The Sun begins its transit of your solar eighth house today, dear Sagittarius, and it will continue to light up this sector of your chart until July 22nd. Sharing on intimate and financial levels, personal empowerment, attachments, and deep emotions are themes of this area of the chart. Support in whatever form can be a big focus now, and more easily attracted. The coming weeks can put the spotlight on your ability to share and blend with a partner or to better understand yourself as you face the need to improve, change, and transform. You can be especially attracted to challenges that take you out of your comfort zone. Today, reaching out to others is favored. You’re more emotionally invested than usual in your ideas, beliefs, and projects.
The Sun moves into your partnership sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will transit until July 22nd, and the coming weeks can be particularly relationship-focused. It’s a more social time of the year when there’s a spotlight on close friendships and partnerships. You can learn a lot about yourself and your life through others now, as they can provide a mirror for certain aspects of yourself that you haven’t truly seen. It’s a period when compromise and negotiation tend to serve you best. Today, with the Moon’s transit of your solar second house, you’re more inclined than usual to focus on the here and now. Confidence in your ability to get things done, to make a living, and to take good care of yourself and others is with you. You require an extra dose of steadiness and predictability in your life.
The 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. Health and fitness goals, as well as work and daily routines, can come into sharper focus during this cycle, although Mercury and Mars have already stirred the pot in these areas for you in recent weeks. 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 smooth working order. Pride in these systems, your work, or your self-care programs is pronounced during this cycle. Today, the Moon spends the day in your sign, connecting with Jupiter in your social sector, and this might facilitate a happy connection with someone special.
The Sun begins its month-long transit of the sector of your solar chart today, dear Pisces. This area of your chart rules your individuality and creative expression, and both Mercury and Mars have been in this “show and tell” sector for some weeks, stirring up the performer in you. It’s a time for celebrating and expressing your talents, abilities, and affections. You’re more openly affectionate and playful at this time of year. A stronger urge is with you to create, put talents to use, show others what you can do, experience and enjoy romance, and more thoroughly enjoy life’s pleasures. Today, however, the Moon continues its transit of your privacy sector for another day, and it may not be until tomorrow that you feel more fully outgoing or expressive.
