Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, July 23rd
There is a lot of activity in your solar fifth house now, dear Aries, with the Sun and Mercury now transiting this creative sector. Today, these bodies align, and an overdue conversation, clearing of the air, news, or sudden insight can occur. Until August 23rd, the Sun is transiting this sector of your chart and helps you to reconnect with your inner child. A shift happens now, from strong focus on your personal and home life to more creative and entertaining pastimes, romance, and sport. The better you’ve tended to your “insides” in the past four weeks, the more confidence you’ll have to express and share in the coming weeks. The Sun is complementing your sign for a month, and you are likely to be feeling freer and happier, as well as more confident and outgoing in a general sense. You can also experience an increased need for communication with children or lovers, or for expressing your ideas in creative, unique ways. Today, you can be particularly articulate and possibly even a little dramatic.
The Sun and Mercury have now moved into your home and family sector, dear Taurus, and an especially busy period now gives way to a need for more peace, comfort, quiet, and familiarity. They join forces today, stimulating sudden awareness and encouraging meaningful ideas and conversations. These can motivate you to push forward with domestic plans. Some of you could be clearing the air about a past matter and seeing opportunities to put the negative elements of the past behind you, particularly in a relationship. The coming weeks are important for reconnecting to your roots, for building your inner well, and for taking charge of your family life. This is a time of gaining clarity concerning family or home-related matters.
With the Sun and Mercury both entering your sector of communications, learning, and errands, and aligning with one another, dear Gemini, you can find yourself in high demand. As distracting as life can be right now, it’s also a good time for engaging in helpful conversations and learning new ways to approach old problems. There can be an important discovery, epiphany, or conversation occurring now. There can be a clearing of the air. Both the Sun and Mercury are now moving through your communications sector and harmonizing with your sign, pointing to more ease and understanding. These transits can bring you into more contact with others, a busy pace of life, and chances to pick up all sorts of information.
You may be seeing an issue surrounding values, respect, money, talents, or possessions today with more objectivity and clarity, dear Cancer. There may be an epiphany, sudden idea or something dawning on you, a lightbulb over the head moment, or important news. You can find useful information in the details right now. Conversations can also be helpful, particularly those that are more informational than emotional, and more logical than conceptual. The Sun and now Mercury have ended their yearly transits of your sign. In the past weeks, you’ve likely received more than usual personal attention. Now, you’re shifting gears and your focus is turning to what it is that makes you feel secure and comfortable.
You’ve come to the end of a rather introspective cycle, dear Leo, with the Sun and Mercury finishing up transits in your privacy sector and now embarking on transits to your sign. Ideally, you’ve acquired more rest and time for deep thought in the past weeks. Your personality is shining now. You are more noticeable than usual and projecting more strength. You’re feeling especially talkative and expressive. You are also busier than usual, your curiosity is piqued, and you can feel especially motivated to get moving on a pet project, or to learn something entirely new. This is an animated period for friendships and networking. Today is a time for verbalizing your desires, to be heard, and to get noticed. You may be driven to express yourself or to communicate with someone, and you may be turned to for advice or asked to speak. Your need to be heard is significant right now and you can count on others listening. There can be important realizations, epiphanies, and clarifications occurring now.
You’ve ended a solar cycle today that has put special emphasis on networking, dear Virgo, and you’re now turning more attention to your private, inner world. The coming month is likely to involve some cleaning out of the deadwood in your life, perhaps dealing with endings as you examine the past in order to put it behind you, and some soul searching. More time set aside for relaxing, meditative activities is necessary now. Some of you will be dealing with endings and tying up loose ends rather than throwing yourself into something entirely new, and this is a natural process. Illumination can come today, when you pay attention to details on a private or past matter. The Sun and Mercury align in your soul sector, and this can prompt you to see something you’ve failed to see before, or a conversation can bring up new information that allows you to come to a more definite conclusion. You might reawaken a topic from the past today, or have new insight into an old issue. There can be a good feeling of purging or release involved with bringing something to light.
Your social life can be animated in the coming weeks, dear Libra, and today, much thought can be given to friendships, group associations, and long-term goals. There can be better self-expression today, new insight into any of these matters, and sudden ideas or realizations that have you feeling hopeful and possibly quite excited. After a fair amount of attention to performance and ambitions in the last few weeks, your focus now shifts as the Sun and Mercury spotlight an area of your chart that rules over your social and humanitarian or personal happiness goals. Being a “team player” will win you the most favors. There is good energy for interacting with friends and sharing your ideals, dreams, and hopes with like-minded individuals, although some tricky areas with these things coming in August. Today is good for sharing your ideas or your expertise with others. You might gain more clarity about or through a friend. It’s a strong time for clearing something up, and for communicating intentions.
You might receive special attention today, dear Scorpio, especially in a professional sense. Today brings good energy for getting over things that you need to leave behind, living in the present, and looking forward to the future, rather than dwelling on the past. Career goals can become clearer, particularly if you talk about them or write them out – verbalize them. Problem solving skills are strong. New insights into your career path, work project, or life-plan goals can emerge today. There can be an a-ha moment, an important clarification, or a meaningful realization. In recent weeks, there has been a stronger focus on learning, exploring, and experiencing life, but now your attention shifts to more material or ambitious concerns.

There can be a clearing of the air or an important discovery or connection made now. The desire to share your philosophy or unique perspective on a matter can be very strong now. Connect and make plans. Rationality is strong. You are ending a rather introspective phase and shifting gears now, as you enter a new cycle that can be inspiring. Good advice seems to be circulating around, and you may be the recipient or the source, and possibly both. You express yourself with more enthusiasm, and perhaps more importantly, with more faith, and this goes over very well with others, leading you to feel especially “heard” and reinforced.
There has been a stronger focus on relationships and balance in the past weeks, dear Capricorn, and you are now shifting your attention to deeper, more intimate matters with the Sun and Mercury now in your solar eighth house. Life is becoming a little more serious for you, and you’re more interested in digging deep than skimming the surface of things. Your intimate world assumes more importance, and you take more notice of the less obvious elements of circumstances and people around you. Today, the Sun and Mercury align in this area of your chart, and there can be a lot of thought given to, or desire /opportunity to speak about, a private, hidden, or taboo matter. You may be clearing the air now, and feeling some form of release as a result. You can reach important conclusions about a relationship or about yourself, as you see a matter more clearly. Writing about your feelings can also be highly useful, leading to important realizations.
Today is strong for taking a step back emotionally and really taking a good, objective look at a situation, dear Aquarius. It can be a day when a missing puzzle piece of information is discovered, or when especially meaningful conversations and conclusions happen. Good energy is with you for love relationships and partnerships today, although it’s not necessarily very deep, as it’s more about mental engagement than anything at the moment. Let others lead the conversations now, and listen closely – you may very well get an earful! Whether you are contributing ideas or playing a supportive role as you bring new light to a problem or good advice to the table, it’s a day for getting places mentally. You are now leaving a cycle in which work and routines seem to have dominated your attention, and entering a period in which social or partnering matters come into stronger focus.
Pay special attention to the details today, dear Pisces, as you have much to gain from what you see and discover now. Communication issues tend to dominate. Good energy is with you for sorting out work and health matters in a logical manner. You can gain more clarity about either of these things today. There can be an epiphany or realization about a health issue or solution or a work or service matter. You are entering a period in which there is stronger or renewed energy for work and routines, as the Sun and Mercury are now transiting your solar sixth house. While it’s not the best time for recognition or worldly success, it’s a strong period for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success.
