Daily Horoscopes for July 23

The Sun fires into the midsummer sign of Leo the Lion, marking the first day of a new astrological month. In the northern latitudes we feel the radiant heat warm our hearts, prompting us to let our love lights shine. Meanwhile, the Moon enters earthy Taurus at 12:57 am EDT, reminding us to stay in touch with our senses. However, a sobering Mercury-Saturn aspect and a fantasy-prone Sun-Neptune alignment alert us to the contradictions we may face.

 

Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although it’s been difficult to reestablish your confidence lately, things are now beginning to improve. Naturally, a shift in your attitude won’t occur overnight, but you could feel more positive day by day. Just let the current events unfold while affirming that better times are on the way. Believe it or not, the Sun’s entry into your 5th House of Creativity today may be enough to chase away the clouds.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

The Moon’s return to your sign can put you in touch with your feelings while the Sun’s entry into your 4th House of Home and Family turns on the streetlights for your walk down Memory Lane. But there’s no use in holding on to childhood perspectives anymore, especially if they reinforce your concerns about scarcity. Remember that the universe is overflowing with unlimited possibilities, so show up with a smile and do what you can to transform your fears into love.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You might overcompensate today and show only your very best side. But your positive attitude could come across as false if you sound blindly optimistic. It’s of no value to hide the truth now, even if it’s more than you think others can take. Don’t get bent out of shape over the wrong things; stick to the facts and let others take responsibility for their reactions.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You might feel relieved as the bright Sun leaves your sign, taking the spotlight off you and allowing you to work quietly behind the scenes. But you don’t want too much isolation because the Moon slips into your 11th House of Social Networking today. You wish you could just make up your mind and follow your agenda, but you’re being pulled in two totally different directions. Ultimately, you will be happiest if you go with the flow now instead of trying to hang on to the illusion of control.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are naturally resistant to change and may not want to engage with what’s coming around the next corner. Nevertheless, your anticipation continues to build now because you know that you’re on a new course and can’t wait to see where it leads. The Sun’s shift into your sign today initiates a highly active phase for the next month. But don’t rush the creative process; everything will unfold exactly on time.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You aren’t happy if someone is keeping information from you today, but thankfully you can handle the situation skillfully because the willful Sun and trickster Mercury are traveling through your 12th House of Secrets. Even a difficult experience can quickly morph into a positive one if you exude confidence, rather than doubt. You can change the game now by preemptively exploring the hidden realms of your subconscious. Happiness comes from the clues you find buried deep in the shadows.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You want to be free of the responsibilities that have been holding you back recently. Fortunately, the brilliant Sun’s entry into your 11th House of Friends encourages you to act boldly in social situations. There’s no need to panic and take a risk, but creating a sound plan that is followed by decisive action can be an unbeatable combination.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s tricky if someone assumes that you will always drop your personal priorities when asked. You wouldn’t mind offering your help, but you don’t appreciate the pressure of being told what to do. There’s no need to say yes and jump right in. Others will get by without you immediately coming to the rescue today. Taking time to consider all your options before responding may be enough of a cue to convey that you don’t want anyone to take advantage of your generosity.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Perhaps you are dreaming about the future in order to avoid dealing with the promises you made. Your intentions may have been sincere, but your time is running short now and you don’t know how you’re going to fulfill your obligations. Keep in mind that even the smallest molehills seem like mountains today. Don’t make any sudden changes to your overall strategy yet; wait a few days to see how the new landscape takes shape.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Having faith in yourself is crucial, but too much confidence inflates your ego. Even the most surefooted of you goats can slip if you’re moving too fast, and an overabundance of bravado today might be enough to make you careless. Don’t give reality a chance to teach you a lesson in humility. You’ll reach your ambitious goal if you focus on each step along the way.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Everyone is playing a part in your movie now that the dramatic Leo Sun is in your 7th House of Others. Unfortunately, you may be growing weary of someone’s affected behavior. You crave sincerity and truthfulness, but could feel as if you’re currently being shortchanged in your relationships. It will be a lot less stressful if you accept the fact that others are probably giving all that they can. Be appreciative of what you have today, instead of wishing for more.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You would like to have more free time at your disposal today, but you may have already overcommitted yourself in the chore department. Running errands and helping others could prevent you from following your fantasies. But don’t complain about your obligations; just doggedly finish what you can. Thankfully, if you apply yourself diligently during the day, you may have time for more pleasurable activities in the evening.
