Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, July 2nd

We’re not quite ready to return to work yet, and we might take our procrastination too far. A few delaying tactics is fine, but we cannot put off our responsibilities forever. Instead of falling into the overly optimistic trap of the Sagittarius Moon, it’s smarter to recognize the real consequences of any escapist tendencies today. If we don’t honor our obligations, we’ll pay the price when the Moon shifts into karmic Capricorn at 6:50 pm EDT.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You are feeling a strong urge for something that goes beyond your daily routine today. You’re seeking more than recognition and acknowledgment now, and you need to know that your work has meaning.

Keep your thoughts to yourself for now; it will be time to make your move soon enough.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

Intense excitement sustained over several days begins to wear on your nerves. However, you’re not ready yet to settle down and restore tranquility to your life. Although rest and relaxation usually sound like a good idea to you bucolic Bulls, you won’t get a chance to kick back today. In the meantime, create small pockets of peace and quiet so you can recharge your batteries little by little throughout the day.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

You would like to take the day off, but it’s hard to shake the feeling that you should be doing something significant today. You might cover your concern with a cheerful attitude, but you won’t likely have the patience to hide your true ambitions for long. Nevertheless, searching for the meaning of life is a long-term commitment, so don’t expect to have an epiphany right away. Thankfully, if you’re sincere about your goals, the fun times will return sooner than you think.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

You don’t want anyone to talk you out of your point of view today, even if you realize that compromise is ultimately a smarter strategy. Your resistance may be motivated by your fear of giving up control if you don’t trust someone else. Thankfully, you grow more amenable to someone else’s perspective this evening, once the Moon enters your 7th House of Others. Listening carefully throughout the day helps you find a path that values everyone’s unique individuality, including your own.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may be more talkative with Mercury in your sign, but it’s harder to make your words hit the target today. It feels as if everything you say is slightly out of focus, and trying harder doesn’t seem to sharpen your message. Instead of narrowing your vision to gain clarity, try looking at your world through a wide-angle lens. Let the details fall to the wayside and concentrate on the bigger picture. A more philosophical approach ultimately gives you a healthier perspective.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Although other people might wish that you were more optimistic and outgoing, you aren’t responsible for their discomfort. If you feel reclusive today, simply inform those closest to you and ask them to honor your desire to be alone. However, it’s smarter now to keep one foot in reality even if the other one wants to escape. You will have more options if you walk between the inner and outer worlds instead of shutting off one in favor of the other.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You have big plans about what you want to accomplish today, yet it might be difficult to actually get much done. You’re hesitant to stir up any trouble by speaking your piece because your ideas are so revolutionary that you’re afraid no one will take you seriously. Instead of trying to convince others that you are on to something significant, just reveal what you’re up to as casually as possible. Downplaying your thoughts for another day or two strengthens your overall message.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

You’re not one to avoid conflict if it’s about your survival, prompting you to contemplate what’s worth fighting for and what’s not. You may unconsciously set up a situation today where you’re at odds with someone else so you can better your position. However, it’s smarter now to consciously choose compromise over confrontation in order to keep the peace.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Financial concerns, possibly involving a partner who spends more than you do, can put the brakes on the vacation you have been envisioning. But even if you’re having second thoughts today, don’t make any major changes to your plans yet. Hold on to your dream, for your positive attitude will help it to manifest. If you cancel now, you are quite likely to regret it next week. Take a deep breath and wait out the storm before running off to find shelter.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You may need to pay more attention to your feelings now or you could inadvertently stir up unnecessary drama this evening when the Moon moves into goal-oriented Capricorn. Stay emotionally flexible and listen carefully to your inner voice of intuition. Luckily, your sixth sense will steer you right unless you decide to override it with calculated logic. Connect with your heart and not with your head.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Your subconscious mind is trying to tell you something you really need to hear today, but it’s easier not to listen. If you doubt yourself, you may attempt to convince others of your worth by driving yourself too hard, only to end up overcommitted and overextended. There is plenty happening all around you; create healthy boundaries so you don’t lose focus. Begin by trusting your instincts, especially if you need to say no.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You’re intent on making a good impression with your work today. However, finishing your chores on time won’t help you figure out where you’re heading. Spend time with friends who will give you the reality check you need. It’s not that you’re lost and confused; you just have a lot on your plate and could use an objective point of view as you set priorities for the weeks ahead.
