Get a Jump On Tomorrow….
Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, July 18th
With the Moon in your opposite sign all day, dear Aries, you’re challenged to find a balance in your life. This can come through another’s perspective or an objective look at your plans or situation. You recognize the need or desire to include others today. You’re inclined to weigh pros and cons. You’re currently in a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that brings out the artist in you in a highly practical way, as design and planning can be highlighted. You might thoroughly enjoy structuring your creative works or your play and leisure time now. Hobbies and creative pursuits can thrive with individual attention, and your creations may stand out for their uniqueness. This is also a good time for having more faith in your ideas, and for attractions to others who think similarly.
You’re inclined to zoom in on details and flaws today, dear Taurus, with the Moon emotionally charging your solar sixth house all day. You’re noticing those things not always seen or observed, and this works well for fixing problems, unless, of course, you are fixating on difficulties and not attempting to solve them, which could lead to a lot of unnecessary stress. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that’s good for intellectual stimulation on the home front. However, you can quickly feel bored or frustrated if things aren’t mentally engaging enough now. Designing or redesigning in the home can be satisfying. There can be a lot of “traffic” in your home now, but it can also be an enjoyable time on the domestic front. You’re ready to go to bat for a loved one.
The Moon spends another day in your creative sector, dear Gemini, and this opens you up and reminds you to enjoy life, not just go through the motions! Pallas is now transiting your communications sector, where it will stay until September 3rd, making the weeks ahead strong for learning, sharing ideas, and enjoying unique projects, particularly if these involve design, structure, and creativity. Your communications are a little more orderly now, and, with a bit of planning, your unique ideas will come across more clearly and competently. Reaching out can bring interesting people into your life, too. This transit helps combat some of the disorganization you may be feeling with retrograde Mars in the opposite sector.
Some days call for action, but for others, taking the path of least resistance works in your favor, dear Cancer, and that’s the likely scenario today with the Moon in your home sector all day, and very little astrological activity. You don’t always have to be “on,” and in fact, if you were, others would tire of the theatrics! You might decide to gather your thoughts, collect yourself, and get in touch with your need for security and comfort, as this will better prepare you for busier and more outgoing days to come. You’re quite happy with the background today. Pallas has recently exited your sign and is currently spending time in your resources sector along with Mercury. This puts a little more emphasis on building up your resources and fuels your ambition to get yourself feeling more secure and grounded. It also boosts your confidence when it comes to expressing and sharing your natural talents, and this theme is with you until September 3rd. Creative business or money-making ideas come readily to you now.
Flexibility is a major key to success today, dear Leo. In truth, the day holds lighter astrological activity than usual, and with the Moon hanging out in your solar third house, keeping things light makes a lot of sense. Taking care of a variety of different tasks should keep you pleasantly busy and engaged. A cycle that recently began and lasts until September 3rd finds Pallas in your sign, and you’re standing out for your creativity and shining for your intelligence and insight. Mercury is also in your sign for an extended stay. Your approach is a little more confident than usual, and you’re more inclined to assert your opinions and share your ideas. This can be a powerful time for dreaming up satisfying plans.
You have another favorable day for practical and sensual, earthy activities, dear Virgo. With the Moon out of your sign and into the next, you’re less concerned about your independence as you are your sense of security. Indeed, you can have both, but at the moment, you’re better off building what you have. Novelty may be wearing off on recent ideas or endeavors, and you’re more able to see what will stay and what will go. Any activity that supports a goal to ground and center yourself will help you to move forward with more purpose. A cycle that recently began and lasts until September 3rd puts extra emphasis on your private life. You can benefit from spending extra time on your own or with your thoughts and inner world. You’ll find it an excellent period for accessing your intuition, in general, and for exploring your unmet needs and private dreams.
The Moon spends another day in Libra, and the general emotional tone around you is set by the qualities that come most naturally to you, dear Libra. You may be taking things quite personally right now, but if you decide to act from your heart and make choices based on your heart and not reactions, you’ll find you are entirely on top of your game now. You’re part of a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that may very well bring you into contact with especially interesting people or groups. Or, this can be a time for connecting with exciting and progressive ideas, and plans come together satisfyingly. It’s a reasonable period all around for group activities or collaborations and networking. If there have been imbalances or injustices in a friendship recently, this can be a time for bringing matters back to a balance or straightening things out.
There is a tendency to tuck yourself away again today, dear Scorpio, and you may very well need a break from demanding situations with the Moon in the sign just behind yours. Emotionally, you may be keeping parts of you to yourself (more than usual). Closing up projects or dealing with endings may be appropriate now. The Moon is coming to the end of a cycle in your chart, urging you to get more rest and time alone in preparation for busier days to come. However, you’ve recently begun a cycle that finds Pallas in your career and reputation sector (Mercury is already here). This is a fine time for thinking about and planning long-term goals. Your unique insight or intelligence may be in the spotlight now, gaining some attention and applause. This is a good cycle in which to cultivate good working relationships or business partnerships.
This can be a pressure-free day for relating to friends, and associates, dear Sagittarius. Sometimes, just a little emotional detachment gives you more freedom to be yourself and not worry too much about what other people think or expect of you, and that is the kind of energy with you today. It’s a good time for taking a step back from the more competitive elements of your life and enjoying the cooperative ones. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that encourages more attention to branching out and learning new things, in fact. Your love of learning is in full force now with both Pallas and Mercury in your solar ninth house. It’s a time for broadening your perspective and entertaining new ideas and beliefs, and thoroughly enjoying the process! Others can be finding your ideas especially unique and intriguing.
Your career or reputation can assume more importance to you again today, dear Capricorn, with the Moon occupying your sector of responsibility. Be emotionally prepared to take on new responsibilities so that you’ll accept them graciously or, if nothing does come along, you’ll feel relieved. While you may feel as if you’re on show in small ways now, you’re a part of a cycle in which you have a particular interest in your personal or private life, and it’s most absorbing! This cycle, lasting until September 3rd, is a time for discovering much about your inner motivations and psychology. You can reach meaningful conclusions and get to a place of better self-understanding with Mercury also hanging in this deep, dark place of your solar chart. It’s an opportune period for straightening out problems in close relationships related to confusing power dynamics, possessiveness, or ownership matters.
You’re likely to experience an emotional need to escape the usual routine, dear Aquarius, and introducing some variety into your day, or even taking a major detour, may very well refresh your spirit. Stepping back from trying to figure out what your next move should be helps clear your head. This is a day for zooming away from the details so that you can see the panorama. With Mars retrograde in your sign since the last week of June, you may have been experiencing some waning motivation or enthusiasm, but this energy can also redirect you as you discover interests that you may have overlooked in busier times. You’ve recently begun a cycle, lasting until September 3rd, that challenges you to come to a fairer, more considered balance in a partnership, or to get to a better state of balance between attention to personal plans and attention to others. You’re in a fabulous position, all in all, to see your life a little more objectively.
You continue to feel the need to turn inward today to examine your motivations, dear Pisces, or to take a break from “doing” in order to observe and strategize. On an emotional level, you may be feeling that you want a little more from life, and especially from others, but the tendency isn’t to pursue your desires just yet. Instead, you’re inclined to plan out your next move. You have no interest in blindly repeating past mistakes with automatic responses and behaviors — you’re seeking to make real changes by coming at problems from a different angle. You’ve recently begun a cycle that is quite favorable for organizing and planning, particularly with work, daily routines, and health goals. Until September 3rd, you’re primarily concerned with what’s fair in your work and with your working relationships. Those things that are out of balance can stick out like a sore thumb now! It’s also a fabulous time for learning new methods and acquiring useful skills.
