Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

THE MOON IS IN CANCER TODAY! Keywords: Home, family, mother, older women, nurturing, cooking, gardening, tradition, moody, feelings, over-emotional, antiques, nostalgia, emotions, intuition, tears, water, land, mining, property, your heritage, places of abode, residences, your roots, biological and psychological foundation

The Cancer Moon is moving through your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, former relationships (ex's), organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes and dreams.

Folks, there is no doubt about it. The Sun in Cancer and all of the challenges we have been going through with all of the squares and oppositions have made this a very difficult month of July emotionally but just hang in there because the individuals who can source their emotions and work through them without blaming and shaming others for their actions and reactions will be the victors. You must get a handle on yourself and all of these challenging aspects are calling us to the carpet to do just that!

Now listen . . . after you read this entire horoscope today. I want you to come back and re-read this paragraph so that you do not get discouraged. Even though today is a challenge due to a Grand Square, this New Moon in Cancer that we are preparing to experience brings some wonderful juice with it. Jupiter is so close to the New Moon that is pushing on it. It's getting all nuzzly and close. Something as fat and juicy as Jupiter can be felt for cosmic miles. How can something so wonderful be so up close and personal to something else without affecting it. Folks, this new beginning with this wonderful upcoming New Moon brings in a new way of doing things in the home and family. Things had to change and they will, for the better! Jupiter also brings financial opporunities into the home, so be not afraid. Just be emotionally calm cool and collected. Wax on - wax off. Just handle yourself and check those temper tantrums or you will miss the energy. Be cool my little mentators. When you are on social media and someone is in a bitch-fest, just click away to something else. Post something wonderful. Those in a bitch-fest will miss out unless of course they read this horoscope and change their tune. (winky wink) Opportunites are fragranced all around you in the house in your 11th house (see keywords above) for all Virgo's and then for you personally in the house that Cancer naturally rules.

At 12:23 AM EDT Thursday morning (the 19th) there will be a New Moon in Cancer at 26 degrees 54 minutes, which means we are sliding right into this New Moon today and tomorrow. This morning the Moon in Cancer is at 06 degrees 22 minutes but by the time 12:23 AM EDT rolls around on the 19th, the Moon will have traveled from 06 degrees to 26 degrees.

Have you noticed the graphic of the Moon in the right banner column on every page of this website? If you have been watching this graphic on a daily basis then you could see how it was slowly creeping up on the New Moon. You can also track the New Moon by making yourself aware of monster-sized gray box at on the main astrology page for your Sun Sign that is just under all of the dates. Whenever the Moon is NEW then it is a time of NEW BEGINNINGS in the sign that Moon is in. Since the New Moon is in Cancer, which signifies the beginning of a NEW CYCLE, then see if you can apply this NEW MOON in a Cancer way, which means apply it to the home, family, land, property, domestic affairs, the mother, your maternal instincts, your biological foundation, roots and private life. You should also apply this NEW MOON to the house that the Moon is moving through as stated above. In your case the Moon is moving through the 11th house. Whatever you begin under the NEW MOON has a better chance of success, especially if you mean it.

But wait, Mercury is Retrograde and we never begin anything new under Mercury Retrograde because Retrograde planets are bringing us back for a do-over. A Retrograde planet may be repeating degrees but we are NOT to repeat what we just did. We are supposed to either up our game under the same subject matter because it is a do-over or bring that 'new thing' to fruition that we had previously begun but had not yet finished. Mercury Retrograde is a time to wrap it up and put a bow on it. So this New Moon has a bit of a twist to it.

Today is actually a challenging emotional day because just before we reach the New Moon at 12:23 AM EDT Thursday morning we are experiencing a Grand Square between the Moon in Cancer, Mars in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. When you download the Daily Astrology Chart below you will see the Grand Cross aka Cross Square present in the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn). They are the first signs in each season. Aries (Spring), Cancer (Summer), Libra (Fall) and Capricorn (Winter). The nutshell? The basic essence of cardinal signs is survival. Since we are all caught up in this big red box as signified on the Daily Astrology Chart link in the blue box below, then all we need to do is think outside of the box. Could it be that easy? YES!!! Well, remember with every temptation, including the temptation to pull the emotional temper tantrum and whacked moody card, that God ALWAYS gives us a way of escape. (I Corinthians 10:13) So think outside of the box today.

This Grand Cross aka Grand Square involves 1) The Moon in Cancer is squaring Mars in Libra. 2) Mars in Libra is squaring Pluto in Capricorn 3) Pluto in Capricorn is squaring Uranus in Aries 4) Uranus in Aries is squaring the Moon in Cancer. 5) The Moon in Cancer is opposing Pluto in Capricorn because they are opposite signs 6) Mars in Libra is opposing Uranus in Aries because they are opposite signs. 7) All four corners of a Grand Square MUST INCLUDE all four different elements. Cancer is the water sign, Libra is the air sign, Capricorn is the earth sign and Aries is the fire sign. So when you look at the Grand Square, you can also see the cross lines joining the corners which shows why a Grand Square is also called a Grand Cross. A Grand Square or Grand Cross is basically reveals 4 separate issues going on at the same time. Those of you with a Grand Square (aka Grand Cross) in their Natal Chart will have 4 issues going on at the same time, all the time, every single day. Let's thank God that this Grand Square, which will pass today. This causes me to ponder, why in the world would we need to experience a Grand Square that includes the overly emotional Cancer Moon just before the New Moon? Well, that's for each of us to find out individually. If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart and there is a Grand Square in your chart, then I did include an entire section on the Grand Square explaining it all to you.

As always, you can see in the 1st two paragraphs above which house will affect you as an entire Sun Sign but if you want to know which house this affects in your Natal Chart then look to the house that is ruled by Cancer at 06 degrees 22 minutes. Print out the Daily Astrology Chart below and lay it right over your Natal Chart matching up the degrees and signs and you will find it.
