Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesThe Sun has just begun its transit of your family and home sector, dear Aries, stimulating your need to go inward or for activities revolving around the home. This month-long cycle is excellent for reconnecting with a deep need for inner peace and comfort, enjoying quieter and perhaps emotionally safer activities, and collecting your thoughts or centering yourself. Worldly ambitions tend to take a backseat now as you focus on feeling secure and content in your personal life–an important mission! Building up inner strength and nurturing the self and loved ones are in the spotlight until July 22nd. Today, there can be a focus on sharing memories or compassion. A warm, trusting approach works best with others today. You might put extra effort into improving or balancing the atmosphere in your home, or you go the extra mile to make things easier and more peaceful with loved ones. It’s also a good time for personal reflection.
TaurusUntil July 22nd, the Sun is traveling through your solar third house, dear Taurus, and you’ll be doing more learning, connecting, and communicating. It’s an excellent period for branching out, gaining a new interest, satisfying your curiosity, and finding more gratifying ways to reach out to others. Your daily life can be especially busy–sometimes hectic– but pleasantly so often enough. You’re diversifying and multi-tasking in the weeks ahead. It can be a fine period for introducing more variety into your life. 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. You’re more engaged with others but not always focused. Today, your ruler, Venus, connects well with Neptune and the Moon, lifting your powers of attraction high. You’re drawing in and magnetizing things to you. Communications flow, and there is understanding even if the words are not perfect. In fact, there’s a good chance words are a little messy as Mercury heads to its station. However, you’re likely to pick up new information or sense previously unknown feelings.
GeminiThe Sun has just moved out of your sign, dear Gemini, starting a month-long transit of your sector of values, finances, comfort matters, personal possessions, and self-worth. You take more pride in your resources and ability to build and manage your life. It’s a good cycle in which to discover what it is you truly value. You might also explore your feelings about your own worth and talents and how this affects your life and earning power. Focus more on what you have than what you want, and you’ll be in great shape in the weeks ahead. You’ll pour more energy and heart into stabilizing your life and putting ideas to work for you until July 22nd. Today, you might bring intuition and imagination to your financial and business affairs. You might discover a new health program or wellness idea today or be interested in a new skill to learn.
CancerThe Sun has just begun its yearly, month-long visit to your sign, dear Cancer. Until July 22nd, you’re more inclined to take mindful action and feel that you’re in the driver’s seat. Remind yourself that you have more power than usual to make resolutions and changes that genuinely improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. The month ahead is a personally powerful time when you’re letting your personality shine. There is a stronger desire to start fresh, and the opportunities to do so arrive. Today, your most gentle, refined, and appealing traits are enhanced for all to appreciate. Your compassion meters go way up. Opportunities for cooperation and shared happiness seem more evident with your current mood.

LeoA month-long cycle has just begun in which the Sun transits the sign right behind yours, dear Leo. In the weeks ahead, you can experience a greater need to break from competitive energies or demanding situations. You gravitate to restful, relaxing, and healing activities. It’s a time to do some reflecting on and processing of recent events. It can be 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. You are gathering your strength for busier times to come. Today, the release of personal problems can be especially relieving and beneficial. Conversations may not fare as well as they usually do with Mercury about to station, but there can be creative ways to unburden popping up now.
VirgoThe Sun is now transiting your sector of friendships, dreams, and wishes, dear Virgo, and the month ahead brings more sociable, experimental, and hopeful energy into your life. You take more pride than usual in your friendships, connections, community involvement, or aspirations, and associates or friends may look to you for direction. Sharing with others gives you a boost, and you get more satisfaction than usual when your actions positively impact others. You are a little less focused on career goals. There is a nurturing and accepting theme to today that is a welcome break from the usual. Friends and partners harmonize well, or there is a spirit of friendship in a partnership. Interactions are smooth, flowing, and pleasing. There is a recognition that inner needs are as important as outer needs, if not more, and you could be seeing previously overlooked possibilities as you recognize these things. Note that Mercury is heading to a station so that the exact words you express may be imperfect, but it’s a great time for harmonizing and accepting.
LibraProfessional and public matters or reputation and responsibilities can be in stronger focus in the coming month, dear Libra, with the Sun now transiting your solar tenth house. You are more goal-oriented at this time of year, and especially focused on or invested in your performance, accomplishments, image, and life-plan goals. Your motivation to succeed can strengthen. Others are definitely noticing your work or achievements, making it wise to draw upon your more responsible side. Today, transits enhance your gentler qualities and innate artistic sense. You may see possibilities and opportunities that you overlooked on busier days. Feeling comfortable, at ease, and content can attract good things to you. Today’s influences boost your charm, particularly with the public or in professional settings. You may have a “hard to get” quality that is appealing. Take note of ideas that come to you for projects, but save some of them for future use since Mercury is about to station.
ScorpioThe Sun is now transiting your solar ninth house, dear Scorpio. Until July 22nd, the desire to break the usual routine to engage your mind and your spirit is strong. It can be an empowering time–plans can be big or small, but the important thing is that you are expanding your mind and experiences. Seeing the big picture helps to free you from taking minor problems to heart. A change of scenery, whatever that means to you, can be refreshing. Transits boost your mood today with lovely Venus and Neptune harmonizing with one another and with the Moon in your sign. These transits improve your ability to express yourself creatively.

SagittariusThe Sun has just begun its month-long transit of your solar eighth house, dear Sagittarius, putting the spotlight on your ability to share and blend with a partner or better understand yourself as you face the need to improve, change, and transform. You could have an “all or nothing” attitude to activities and relationships during this cycle. You might find yourself attracted to challenges that take you a little out of your comfort zone. Today, transits support loving gestures, even with a communication disconnect possible as Mercury heads toward a station. Alternatively, you may be getting to a place of calm or understanding on a matter, and this feels great. You might arrive at innovative solutions for problems related to home, family, debt, and support quite intuitively. It’s a time to enjoy, accept, and embrace your deeper feelings and desires. With a more relaxed and creative approach to your life, opportunities to grow and improve open up.
CapricornA new solar cycle has begun, putting the spotlight on your one-to-one relationships, dear Capricorn, whether personal or business or both. This month-long cycle stimulates the need for others, enhances your approachability, and helps bring back a healthy sense of balance in your life.
