Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesYou may need to take a little extra care when dealing with your practical affairs today, dear Aries. Even so, a cycle that begins today and lasts until the end of July boosts practical intelligence. Venus leaves your resources sector today, but Ceres moves in, and more special attention to money matters is in store. The period ahead is strong for attending to your valuables and prized possessions, as well as for saving and stocking up on what you need. Do watch for the tendency to hang on to things you no longer need. However, it’s a good time to discover those things you value most. During this cycle, you’re likely to pour more love and attention into a business or developing and building skills, talents, or something important to you. Creating a comfortable “nest” can be incredibly satisfying. This is an exceptional period for growing a money-making idea.
TaurusThe Moon spends the day in the sign behind yours, dear Taurus, and it’s a good time to unwind, process, and digest. Venus leaves your sign today, but Ceres moves into it, beginning a cycle that lasts until the end of July and emphasizes comfort, care, and nurture. People turn to you out for support and help, or they view you as particularly strong and caring. It’s a good time for personal popularity and better attention to your image, manner, or appearance. You’re nurturing your self-confidence. This can also be a time when you’re more interested in healing and taking special care of your body, and it’s an excellent period for doing so.
GeminiThe Moon spends the day in your social sector, dear Gemini, and you find little appeal in the pressures of performance and responsibility right now. You seek happy, socially fulfilling activities. Venus leaves your privacy sector, but Ceres moves into it today. This Ceres cycle lasts until the end of July and promotes seeking comfort and nourishment from some form of retreat. Time to yourself for reflection, processing, and digesting recent events can be precious now. It’s a strong cycle for learning how to use solitude and private time to your advantage and for promoting improved mental health. Anonymous or personal matters can be appealing and nurturing. It’s a perfect time for forgiving people and situations from your past, which allows healing to happen. You could be in the position to support others or to be the power behind the scenes during this period.
CancerWith the Moon spending the day at the top of your solar chart, it’s a good time to take a good look at your long-term goals, plans, and ambitions, dear Cancer. Your desire to take care of business is strong. Still, you’re beginning a cycle, lasting until the end of July, that’s excellent for emotional nourishment through happiness goals or friends. You might establish or strengthen connections, look to friendships for a sense of belonging, and nurture relationships or pet projects so that they’ll grow and flourish. A stronger sense of purpose and fulfillment ties in with your networking activities. Or you could be actively trying to mend others’ relationships. You can delight in drawing up plans, particularly related to happiness and fulfillment.
LeoThe Moon spends the day in your sector of spirit and the higher mind, dear Leo, and you’re looking to feed your soul with knowledge or experiences. The ordinary holds less appeal for now. Also today, Venus leaves your sector of career and reputation, but Ceres moves in, extending the warmth and special attention to your goals, responsibilities, and objectives. Until the end of July, you could be doing more managing, mentoring, and guiding. This cycle stimulates your ambition in happy, pleasant ways. Feeling in charge and control is exceptionally fulfilling and satisfying now–even healing. You’re standing out as unique. You seek nourishment and emotional satisfaction from your career or public life. You should definitely watch for overcommitting during this period–it’s easier to do than usual. Otherwise, it’s a fine time to explore your need to perform.
VirgoEmotions run deep, and you benefit from steady energy that helps you channel it well, dear Virgo.

You seek emotional satisfaction and nourishment from learning new things, expanding your mind, focusing on longer-term goals, and doing non-routine things. These activities help you feel stronger and happier. Love and freedom intertwine, and you might discover that letting go of something that’s been weighing you down can be healing.
LibraThe Moon spends today in your partnership sector, and you’re in a social frame of mind, dear Libra. You’re looking for balance, and you might naturally seek feedback to do so at this time of the lunar month. As well, Venus is moving out of your intimacy sector today, but Ceres is moving in for a stay until the end of July. It’s a time to pay closer attention to your inner longings, desires, and needs.

You’re more invested in your ability to get along with others in the period ahead. You bring more nurturing, caring energy to your relationships, or caring, supportive people enter your world. This can be an ideal cycle in which to understand a partner and work on growing a relationship. You may be doing more counseling, supporting, negotiating, liaising, and mediating. While there can be times when you overidentify with your ability to get along with others, overall, this is a great time to better understand your relationship needs.
SagittariusThe Moon spends the day in your sector of joy and love, dear Sagittarius, and you readily find the inspiration to share your ideas and creations. A new cycle beginning today and running until the end of July points to more care and special attention to your work, habits, or health programs. Helping others can be in unique focus.

You might work on healing a relationship with a loved one or enjoy more warmth and nourishment in your domestic world.
