The 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.
Until July 22nd, the Sun is traveling through your solar third house, dear Taurus, and you’ll be doing more learning, connecting, and communicating.

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.
The 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 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.

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.

A 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.

The 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 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.
In the first half of the day, people seem to require more care and sensitivity, dear Libra, and there is a strong inclination for misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Keep apologies short, if necessary. With Venus at the top of your chart these days, you’re making it easy for others to respect you. Authority figures, including bosses and parents, are likely to see you in a good light. Someone could support, sponsor, or otherwise endorse you, particularly as the day advances and Venus moves into harmony with Uranus in your sector of support and others’ resources. It’s a good time to flirt with new ideas, concepts, and activities. Freeing yourself from self-limiting beliefs of what you can or cannot do is what Uranus in this sector of your chart is about, and right now, this process helps you present the best version of yourself to others.
Tensions, both internal and with others, are possible in the first half of the day, dear Scorpio. Someone might misunderstand your opinions or take them personally. Avoid explaining yourself to people who are acting narrow-minded but take the time to make things right with those who deserve your attention. Dissatisfaction might only resolve given a little time. As the day advances, you feel considerably freer to express yourself in new ways. It’s a beautiful time for a boost in a relationship. Keeping things fresh and exciting helps any relationships that have become predictable. People are drawn to your liveliness, charm, ideas, and wit today. Sharing ideas, philosophies, and beliefs can be mind-expanding and pleasant. Doing something offbeat or outside of the usual routine can be integral.
In the first half of the day, people can quickly feel slighted and are easily offended, dear Sagittarius, with a Venus-Chiron aspect in play. It may be better to avoid drama right now, which can very easily escalate. Instead, take more time to understand what it is you truly want. Trying to explain your way out of something is likely to be a waste of time right now. If rhythms in relationships are off temporarily, it’s best not to let them define your next move. As the day advances, you feel lighter and freer, particularly on an emotional level. You can experience a pleasant degree of detachment later today, and this is a welcome detour. It allows you just enough comfort and emotional distance from matters to enjoy yourself fully. Complicated issues seem far less complex or confusing. Loosening up your schedule helps you relax and have fun.
With today’s Solar Eclipse clearing the path for lifestyle improvements, dear Capricorn, ideas or insights gained now can help direct you along these lines. You’ll be taking charge of your work, daily routines, self-care programs, and health. However, there is some need to review before you make a fresh start. You may want to breathe some new life into old routines, for example. Perhaps due to a dilemma, a reinvigoration process begins, whether it’s about taking better care of yourself or recommitting to a work project. Aim to be content to be out of step or anonymous, just for now, as this can help you in the long run since it allows you to observe and redirect plans. Be sure to pace yourself and don’t jump into something without thinking. A new direction will come, and you don’t have to push for it. Instead, you’ll feel the motivation and courage build slowly but surely, eventually reaching a point where you’re in charge and confident in what you’re doing.
To clear the way for a fresh start after today’s Solar Eclipse, dear Aquarius, you may need to take care of some unfinished business. Those projects or associations that have been holding you back from expressing your authentic, creative self may come under scrutiny. This eclipse can serve as a strong push to start anew regarding a romance, creative project, or the pursuit of joy and pleasure in your life. As you review old ideas, new perspectives can unveil. There could be a reconnection with an old friend that gets you thinking or viewing a past relationship in a new way. This helps set up the new, slate-clearing energy of this eclipse. It can also be a time for bringing back old hobbies and pastimes. Since this powerful New Moon occurs in your sector of romance, creative self-expression, recreation, children, and hobbies, events happening now and in the coming weeks set you up for new beginnings in one or more of these areas of life. You are likely to attract positive attention from others, especially romantically or creatively speaking. Allow the process to unfold, and keep in mind that eclipses can drain your energy temporarily.
If you’ve been undecided about a project launch, a move, or a personal change, dear Pisces, the energy of today’s Solar Eclipse can nudge you forward. However, take your time with brand new beginnings and aim to strategize and plan. Keep in mind that any backtracking you need to do now will contribute significantly to the strength of plans and future ventures. There can be some critical renovations and improvements in your home or with family relationships on the horizon. A fresh start may arise from a feeling of being in the dark or in limbo, necessitating a new approach. Whatever the reason, you’re starting anew with your home or personal life, family, or needs for nurture, comfort, and safety. It can involve excavating and looking to past patterns to better understand where you want to go. It’s time to assess what may have held you back from thriving, mainly related to your career and domestic world, and how you balance your time between them. The coming weeks are powerful for taking charge of your home life, attention to matters of security and safety, connecting with family and your own emotions. This eclipse can serve as a cosmic nudge to find your roots, learn your worth, build your sense of security, and focus on improving your support system or base of operations. There can be the need or desire to put your personal life first now, and changes may be afoot.
