Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, July 12
Pre-existing problems in your relationships or with work can build to a head today, dear Aries. You may be feeling frustrated if people have been overstepping their bounds. Or, this is about a situation instead of a specific person — a complicated problem can emerge or come to a head now. This is due to the Sun’s yearly opposition to Pluto that ties in with a Solar Eclipse today. Entertain the idea that blocks to plans encountered now can inspire you to make substantial, more realistic and reasonable refinements and changes that truly benefit you in the long run. You may be putting in a lot of extra hours, but you deserve a break! Tonight’s Solar Eclipse occurs in your sector of family and home life, helping you to start fresh in your personal life, perhaps with a resolution to take more downtime or to spend extra care and energy on making your domestic world run smoothly.
With the Sun in opposition to Pluto this morning, dear Taurus, there can be a feeling of being pushed to the wall emotionally, and it can be difficult to know how to resolve problems straight away. This aspect is an annual event, but because it ties in with tonight’s Solar Eclipse, it takes on more power. Defensiveness and clinging to positions can prevent healthy dialogue now. Tension may revolve around opinions or how someone is communicating with you, particularly if you feel that person is trying to overrule you. While things may feel a little stormy this morning, if handled well, you stand to learn a lot about your inner resentments, as well as those things that have been frustrating people in your life. This is a time when building emotions tend to find release through epiphanies and confrontations, but as buried frustrations find their resolution, there can be a nice feeling of personal power. Tonight’s Solar Eclipse helps to wipe the slate clean for new beginnings, attitudes, and outlooks.
There is a tendency for people to push for answers early today, dear Gemini, but this may go a little too far. As the Sun stands off to Pluto, it may be that you’re taking things a little too personally, but it’s also likely that others are doing the same, and, as the expression goes, “it takes two.” Do your part but don’t accept others’ behavior that could undermine you, either. Money matters and questions of ownership may be tricky right now. A money problem that may have been weighing you down could reach a turning point. If you’ve been feeling undervalued, frustrations can come to a head now. The trick to making this energy work for you is to let something go long enough to use your considerable powers of negotiation. While relationships or financial matters may feel loaded or intense now, this is a time for releasing yourself from problems or burdens or making a plan to do so going forward. You’ll feel lighter as a result! Fortunately, a Solar Eclipse occurs tonight that helps you start fresh, particularly when it comes to money matters, talents, and improving relationships where you may have felt taken for granted.
The Solar eclipse in your sign tonight sets up powerful energy for asserting your independence and beginning anew, dear Cancer. It’s strong for personal reinvention, making a positive impact, education, and relationships with extended family. There can be a big attraction to cultural events and exotic places or activities that take you to new places and expand your mind. Early today, though, try to avoid a tug of war with a Sun-Pluto opposition directly challenging you. This can set off relationship problems that have been brewing under the surface of things. Deliberate actions tend to meet convoluted problems, but a convoluted approach doesn’t necessarily fare much better! You could be dealing with a difficult person or situation, or a conflict emerges now. However, you can come to a better understanding of where you may be overly attached to something that is preventing you from growing. Look for ways to reclaim personal power by first determining where you’re giving it away. This will help clear the decks from brand new beginnings.
The Solar Eclipse tonight points to a need to look within, dear Leo. If you’ve resisted taking time for reflection or dealing with ongoing problems, this eclipse will prompt you to take charge. It’s a compelling call to action to be less active! This eclipse wants you to get extra time to rest and reflect. A Sun-Pluto opposition early today can push a matter that has been brewing under the surface of things, particularly if you’ve been micromanaging your life in the areas of health and work. Power plays can occur with those you work with, or you may feel a lot of pressure to get things done, even if your heart isn’t in it or you are not feeling up to par emotionally and physically, challenging your desire to unwind and relax. You want to do it all, and you’re afraid that taking a break will leave you missing out. Frustrations that emerge are telling, and you’re likely to learn quite a bit about your fears and foibles. Dealing with these things can help put you in the best position to take advantage of the take-charge energy of the eclipse.
The Solar Eclipse tonight can herald new beginnings related to friends, groups, and significant ideas and dreams for you, dear Virgo. This morning, and tied into the energy of this eclipse, is a Sun-Pluto opposition that has a way of pulling up areas of overattachment that need management before you can begin anew. Insecurities can drive behaviors of a lover, child, or friend, or there could be an event that triggers memories of disappointment or a letdown with the Sun’s yearly opposition to Pluto coming into force today. This influence pits light and dark forces against one another in your social sectors. Mindfully releasing some of your frustrations can be important work for you now and in the coming months. Be as honest with yourself as possible, because if you’re clinging to something or someone so much that your friendships and sense of growth are suffering, you’d be wise to take small, solid steps towards managing this fear.
An annual Sun-Pluto opposition occurs this morning, dear Libra, complicating emotions but also bringing greater power or punch to your need to purge and release before the Solar Eclipse tonight. If you’ve felt that others are attempting to pull your strings, you’ll want to correct the situation with the epiphanies and events of today. Try not to resist, fear, or avoid change, which can stir up more problems. Identify where you’ve been overly attached, particularly around the home and with loved ones, and consider ways to let go of unnecessary burdens in your life. This is an excellent time to clean up your life in fundamental ways, particularly around the home. This cleanup will do wonders for the energy you have available to put into your career or responsibilities. In fact, the Solar Eclipse occurring tonight sets you up wonderfully for taking off with new beginnings, goals, and ambitions.
A Solar Eclipse tonight encourages you to move out and about, particularly on mental levels, dear Scorpio, as well as refresh yourself through new experiences, people, and places. An annual opposition between the Sun and Pluto occurs this morning, however, pitting your desire for new experiences against your attachment to your routines. In truth, you may have a lot on your plate, but you need a break from things from time to time so that you can refresh yourself and your mind. Consider that you may be limiting your growth by sticking too closely to your habits, methods, neighborhood, or home. Watch for trying to push an idea or way of thinking onto someone, or for sticking with what you know so tightly that you’re not learning anything new! Health issues may come into play now, too, if unrest is a constant. Do what you can to make room for spirit-boosting activities in your life.
This is a powerful time to get in deeper touch with yourself, inner desires, fears, addictions, and vulnerabilities, dear Sagittarius, with tonight’s Solar Eclipse occurring in your solar eighth house. This morning, the Sun and Pluto form their annual opposition, and it’s wise to avoid being heavy-handed, as there is no benefit from pushing your agenda right now, especially when it comes to values and issues of sharing. If something feels very unfair, then you need to talk about it, however. There can be some challenges in relationships or sudden awareness of something that you’ve laid to rest and now need to face, and this can be about money matters or power dynamics in a relationship. Consider that others’ emotional stances may merely be a cover for a desire to win your approval. Keep your mind open and attempt to rise above fear-based suspicion, which tends to figure strongly when Pluto is strong and challenged as it is now. Aim to purge, release, and let go so that you can grow along with this eclipse energy and turn over a new leaf.
A Solar Eclipse occurs in your solar seventh house tonight, dear Capricorn, prompting you to think about relationship lacks and needs and helping to wipe the slate clean for starting fresh. It’s a little too easy to get involved in an argument or tug of war early today, however. Before you bring up specific sensitive topics, consider whether the climate is right. If you find yourself dwelling on something small, examine what may be the actual source of frustration. Buried emotions and possibly old regrets or hurts can emerge now with the Sun and Pluto forming an opposition this morning. Try to treat this as a time for coming to a better understanding of yourself and avoid counting on someone to do exactly as you want or expect. More importantly, try your best not to mastermind a situation having to do with people and emotions. If you aim to stay very open and flexible, which can be challenging to do right now but not impossible, then you get yourself into an empowered position. This puts you in the best possible position for enjoying the benefits of the eclipse, allowing you to start anew in a relationship.
A Solar Eclipse occurs tonight in your sector of self-care programs, daily routines, and work, dear Aquarius, allowing you to wipe the slate clean and start anew in these areas. You have all the power you need to make important changes, and this can be about reorganizing your life, eating and exercising better, managing your time more productively, and working on the details of work, projects, and plans. This morning, the Sun opposes Pluto, and pushing things tends to cause more friction. In fact, it can be as easy for others to push your buttons as it is to push theirs. Something that has been hidden or buried can emerge, or you may be wrestling with something from the past or insecurities that undermine your performance. Working on what may be holding you back from taking better care of yourself is crucial now, and can benefit you much as you endeavor to make improvements, healthy lifestyle changes, and new work beginnings prompted by the take-charge energy of the Solar Eclipse.
A Solar Eclipse occurs in your enjoyment and self-expression house tonight, dear Pisces, bringing increased power to areas ruled by this sector, including romance, creativity, hobbies, entertainment, children, and pleasure. You gain more confidence and energy to go after your heart’s desire as well as share and express yourself more freely. This morning’s Sun-Pluto opposition ties into this new beginning, suggesting a struggle. You may be finding new ways to communicate and enjoy yourself, and these can take you away from certain friends, networks, or groups. Or, the pressures of a long-term dream or plan or friendship can be intense. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to people or projects that have been keeping you from expressing your true self, you’ll be feeling the restriction and looking to make changes. The goal now should be to let go of excessive attachments to things that are limiting your growth, particularly if attempting to mastermind a situation or fear of not being “in the know” in a relationship is a major time suck and energy drain. Do your best to prioritize your enjoyment and sense of play now. You need a break!
