This can be a friendly, and possibly a little indulgent, day. Mercury and Venus are moving towards a sextile, exact early tomorrow, and we are more inclined to verbalize or intellectualize our feelings, and soften our language.
- The Moon is in Aquarius all day (until Sunday, July 5th at 10:22 AM).
- The Moon is waning and in its Full Moon phase.
- Venus is direct and is in its pre-retrograde shadow.
Times are EDT
Romance, social relations, comfort, and finances are starred for you today, Aries. You are magnetizing good things to you quite naturally now. Interactions tend to be easy, smooth, kind, and helpful. Socially, you may be at the right place at the right time. Complicated problems seem to be easier to understand when you feel supported and approach them in a relaxed manner. You could be expressing your feelings and ideas both with the same ease. This is unlikely to be a productive time for work, but can be wonderful for taking a break and enjoying good company.
Home and family matters can be quite easy and smooth-running today, Taurus. There can be good news or promising developments with house or financial affairs, an exciting new purchase for the family, or a sense of abundance now. There can be some restlessness today that stems from an unsatisfied or unrecognized need. This type of feeling often leads to self-indulgence, which of course doesn’t resolve things. Get into better touch with what it is you feel is missing. However, this should be a good time for family and relationship matters, as well as helpful, happy conversations.
You are communicating your needs quite effectively today, dear Gemini, but it’s also a strong time for presenting your ideas. Personal appeal is boosted today, as your ruler, Mercury, is in your sign and forms a nice angle with pleasing Venus. There could be news or a communication that is warm, pleasant, and promising. You can feel understood, cared for, and supported as a result. You might be looking into a new idea or discovering a new interest. The Moon is in your adventure sector all day, supporting and enhancing your curiosity and encouraging you to think in big, happy terms.
It’s a little easier than usual to discuss private or tricky topics with more rationality and readiness, dear Cancer, as you are seeing emotions from an intellectual perspective. This can also be a good day for bringing intuition and aesthetic sense to practical matters. You might come up with interesting ideas about how you can improve your financial state. You are more inclined to pay attention to unusual signs or symbols, and these can factor into decisions now. There is a playful quality to conversations, and politeness or kindness, which is especially pleasant for you right now. Past love can come to mind or resurface in a significant way.
With Venus in your sign these days, dear Leo, you could find that people in general are appreciating the qualities that come very naturally to you. Others are showing interest and seem to be drawn or attracted to you more than usual. You might also be especially in touch with the gentler, more receptive side of your nature. Today is good for sharing ideas, personal thoughts, feelings, and memories. You can be particularly interesting and convincing. You have a stronger sense than usual about what ideas have true potential for success in the long term.
While you’ve been in a trend of taking stock of your emotional and social life more than pursuing it directly, dear Virgo, this is a good day for spending time with others, sharing your ideas, or simply joining in and doing most of the listening. Today is strong for sharing personal matters with a trusted friend, and for coming to an understanding with someone or with a matter from the past. It’s also a good day for intuition on business and financial matters. There can be a subtle communication of romantic interest from someone today. There can be a sudden impulse to contact someone, or you can be the recipient of surprising contact.
You have a stronger desire than usual to bring a spirit of true friendship and acceptance to your relationships, dear Libra, but also a loving, warm quality to your friendships. It’s easier than usual to “win” friends with an easygoing, charming, and open manner. Friends are drawn to you. Today is particularly strong for friendships as well as romance, and mending broken fences. People are showing definite interest in you. You have been discovering your own unique set of truths and beliefs recently, and today you’re especially eager to share them. You can feel very hopeful about the future now.
This can be a good time for enhancing your reputation, learning things that help you in your career, and talking about plans for the future or long-term goals, dear Scorpio. People may be speaking highly of you. It’s a generally good day for making business decisions or for fact-gathering in casual ways. A partner may be especially conversational. You are more aware of public sentiment and what others think of you when you are making decisions. When it comes to private or personal matters, you’re more inclined to discuss them rationally and naturally.
It’s a strong day for connecting with others, and especially on one-to-one levels and romantically, dear Sagittarius. Even so, good communication skills positively affect all areas of life now. A feeling of camaraderie with a special someone can lift your spirits and make you feel that you’re moving forward. You may be feeling some inner restlessness that, if left unchecked, could lead you to push others’ boundaries. Identify the source of this so that it doesn’t drive your behavior. Otherwise, make extra time for people you care about today.
Love is easily expressed and attracted today, dear Capricorn, although you’re inclined to show your feelings through quiet support rather than through showy means. Your intuition regarding health or work methods is strong now. Perhaps because you may be breaking the routine a little, you are able to see regular things in new ways, and you may even meet someone interesting as you pursue your daily affairs or health goals. There can be a special attraction to mysteries and hidden motives, investigations of some kind, and all that we don’t typically see.
This is a good time for coming to agreements, romantic overtures, expressions of affection, and sharing of good humor, dear Aquarius. The beauty may very well be in how you communicate more than what you are expressing. It’s a good time for getting advice or simply reaching out. You can be eager to start a new creative project, or possibly a new romantic affair or experience. Conversations about love, children, creative arts, hobbies, or entertainment can be pleasing now. With the Moon in your sign all day, you are projecting yourself warmly and others are drawn to you. Others may seem a little indulgent or even irresponsible in your eyes today, however.
Agreements might come easily right now, dear Pisces, and you can have a stronger desire to find peace in your domestic life or with family now. You are seeking out more harmony on the job and in your daily life. This may not be a day in which a lot gets done in an obvious or explicit way, but it’s good for mending fences, enjoying others, and expressing your feelings. The Moon in the sign just behind yours all day suggests keeping things quiet, and makes it a good time for personal reflection. You may not be in the spotlight, but this can be a good thing as you need to emotionally recharge.

LUNAR PHASE: FULL MOON
Moon 180 to 135 degrees behind the Sun.
We are concerned mainly with the nature of relationships and are made aware of recent imbalances. Something can come to fruition. Our concern is not limited to personal relationships, but relationships of all kinds. Our cards are on the table.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on July 4th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected, or will perfect, in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a life time).
