Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesToday’s Moon transits are good for getting to a happy state of self-understanding, dear Aries. If you can manage it, an emotional retreat of sorts can be incredibly refreshing now. Also today, Mars moves into your sector of joy, bringing your fiery and courageous ruling planet into your solar fifth house until July 29th. It’s a period of extra dynamism, stimulation, and action, particularly in your creative, entertainment, and romantic worlds. This more outgoing cycle brings smoother energy to most of your endeavors, as your direct approach tends to get you results. It can be a time for stepping up your creative life, hobbies, pastimes, or leisure activities. It’s an excellent transit for self-expression, magnetism, and entertainment.
TaurusThe Moon moves into your communications sector for a stay of over two days, dear Taurus. Lively people and settings appeal more than usual today, and you’re willing to entertain new interests and perspectives. While not the best time to make the bigger decisions, you’re getting to better understand your needs and goals. From today until July 29th, Mars transits your home and family sector, and you’ll be pouring more energy into your personal life. This transit can stimulate your desire to do something about difficult conditions or relationships. You’re ready to fix, improve, and otherwise renovate your life from the ground up, especially your domestic world. In the weeks ahead, you’re motivated to handle problem areas with family or take up projects around the home. Directing this extra energy into productive channels is critical. Otherwise, you may feel quite restless, or you could stir up unnecessary conflict. It’s best to watch for bottling up anger since you’re protective of others along with yourself, but perhaps a little too defensive during this cycle.
GeminiYou’re in good shape for paying special attention to the practical side of your life, dear Gemini. The Moon moves into your solar second house for a stay of over two days, and you’re ready to slow down to a comfortable pace. Also today, Mars heads into your communications sector. This longer transit lasts until July 29th and is excellent for enthusiasm for learning, studying, and sharing. Still, it can produce a tendency to speak too quickly or directly at times, and Mercury’s retrograde until the 22nd complicates this potential problem. Aim to pour your energy into intellectual tasks if you can, as you can get a whole lot done, working with vigor and passion. It can be a busy time in your neighborhood or your daily life. You can get quite fired up over ideas and opinions during this seven-week transit.
CancerThe Moon heads into your sign, highlighting and awakening your emotions, dear Cancer. You can be feeling inspired and motivated, and you have more faith in yourself. It’s a good day to see opportunities all around you. Mars now brings more energy, courage, and initiative to your financial life or business with the start of its transit of your resources sector. It can also be a time to build up your resources or put your natural talents to good use. The drive to improve your lot in life is strong, but there can also be some tensions surrounding personal finances and possessions. Questions of ownership and values can be hot topics. However, with Mars no longer in your sign, life is a little quieter in a general sense, and you might appreciate it. You might gain the motivation to build and develop something important to you, such as a business, pet project, bank account, or relationship.
LeoThe Moon moves into your privacy sector for a couple of days, dear Leo, and you may need more time to reflect and detox on an emotional level. There can be new insight into your past. Also today, Mars moves into your sign for a stay until July 29th, drawing out fiery assertiveness, courage, initiative, and energy. This transit can stimulate strong desires to begin new projects or to present yourself in bolder, more dynamic ways. You have more energy during this cycle, sometimes to the point of excess, and it’s a good idea to find ways to manage it to your advantage. This is a time of increased independence and initiative. Pace yourself, but take action on things that matter to you most.
VirgoToday’s energies support connecting with your happiness goals and considering long-term plans, dear Virgo. You might enjoy a subtle boost in your social or romantic life, or good news or advice is circulating now. Mars moves into your privacy sector for a stay until July 29th, however. In the seven weeks ahead, you’ll generally need extra time to yourself for rest or activities that aid healing and energy replenishment. It’s also a time for working on motivation levels as you might put a particular venture to rest or wrap up a project, and reorienting yourself is necessary. You might seek closure on a matter or deal with unresolved problems. Sometimes with this transit, if you don’t acknowledge your need for more rest, you feel deflated or under the weather.
LibraOthers tend to recognize your efforts or contributions today, dear Libra. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart for a couple of days, and you’re more goal-oriented, or you’re connecting with your ambitions. Also today, Mars begins its transit of your solar eleventh house. Until July 29th, this planet lends extra energy, courage, assertiveness, and fire to your sector of groups, friendships, and aspirations. A more active and lively social life is likely now, or there can be a particular focus on group or teamwork. You can play a more vital role in others’ lives. Generally speaking, competitive energy with friends now is the motivating kind, and something inspires you through your friends or networks to take better charge of your life or work towards a special goal or dream.
ScorpioToday’s transits support sharing, learning, and guiding, dear Scorpio. The Moon heads into your spirit sector for over two days, and you want to expand or grow something important to you. A change of scene or routine can be refreshing. Also today, Mars begins its transit of your career and reputation sector for a stay of almost seven weeks. Until July 29th, Mars brings energy and ambition, as well as motivation and competitive feelings, to your world. Life path goals, your public life, responsibilities, performance, business affairs, and career matters can awaken, enliven, and animate. The motivation to excel, improve, and advance increases in the coming weeks. It’s possible there are some clashes with people who’d prefer to take the lead.
SagittariusToday’s transits seem to boost your willingness to make the most of a situation, dear Sagittarius. The Moon moves into your intimacy sector for a stay of over two days, and it harmonizes with your planetary ruler, Jupiter. As a result, your personal life is more enjoyable and engaging. Also today, Mars moves into harmony with your sign. Mars will stick around in your solar ninth house for seven weeks–until July 29th, motivating you to actively learn and participate. It boosts your spirits and zest for life. An enthusiastic and energetic cycle, this Mars transit finds you feeling more confident about making changes or trying new things. You’re attracted to new physical or mental challenges, and your desire to learn about the world and share your ideas and opinions increases. Whether obstacles are fewer or they seem less relevant, you seem to have an easier time pursuing your desires in the weeks ahead.
CapricornEven with Mercury retrograde, today’s energies are good for communicating and teaming or pairing up to develop a new perspective, dear Capricorn. Conversations are productive and enjoyable. Mars moves into your intimacy sector, and until July 29th, encourages you to seek deeper connections, whether this is with a project or a person! You’re more strategic and willing to dig deep and acknowledge your innermost desires. If you’ve had issues with power dynamics and sharing in a relationship, now is the time to pull them out of hiding. If you need it, you might pursue a loan or support. You can use this period for taking actions that empower you, such as quitting bad habits. This transit can help you recognize that power is not about having the upper hand with others but about managing your own energy effectively.
AquariusToday’s transits are good for harnessing insights and finding ways to apply them to make improvements to your life, dear Aquarius. You can enjoy building up your resources or finding alternative ways to use what you have. Mars moves into opposition with your sign today, and it will transit this area of your solar chart until July 29th. Buried frustrations in your relationships can surface, and more activity, dynamism, or competitiveness is likely in your relationships. You’re likely to find others energizing or irritating! It’s a great time for clearing the air or taking charge of problem areas if you don’t mind some liveliness. The courageous, energetic, and active qualities of Mars are directed or applied to partnerships, relationships, and teamwork in the seven weeks ahead.
PiscesThe Moon moves into your sector of creativity and joy for over two days, dear Pisces, harmonizing with Jupiter in your sign today. Sharing and creating can be in focus and very satisfying. You’re attracting positive attention! Also today, Mars moves into your work and health sector for a stay of almost seven weeks. Until July 29th, this transit motivates you to get on top of your daily routines. You might pour more energy into organizing your space, pursuing fitness or other health methods, and providing services or doing your work/chores during this cycle. While it’s best to watch for pushing yourself too hard in these areas, it’s an excellent time to enjoy the rush of enthusiasm to take better care of yourself.
