Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Crack open that shell and show the world your colors, Cancer! Today, dazzling Venus in your zodiac sign forms a lovely angle to glamorous Neptune in your outspoken ninth house. It's safe to take a risk, whether you're confessing your heartfelt sentiment or sharing a creative talent with the world. You may be inspired to travel, or you could have a mind-expanding epiphany. And oh, how open you are to fresh ideas today. Maybe you'll read a book, watch a video or discover an illuminating workshop that shifts your perspective, helping you heal from a painful experience. Release the grudge, Cancer—the world is your oyster, and bitterness will only hold you back from finding its pearls.
Today’s mashup of the moon and changemaker Uranus in your career sector could find you uncharacteristically claustrophobic on the job. Your security-loving sign appreciates routine, but some fresh energy can do wonders for your motivation levels and overall vitality. There’s no need to hand in your resignation, but you can sniff out interesting new projects—or even pitch a few of your own. If you're ready for a job switch, ask around. Someone in your network could field you an unexpected opportunity that's perfect for your skillset.
Next stop: King's Landing? Ever since Mars turned retrograde on April 17, life has felt like a game of thrones with power plays and dramatic arcs at every turn. Breathe a sigh of relief, Cancer. Today the planet of passion and drive corrects course and powers forward through your fifth house of fame, leadership and romance until August 2. Are you down for the crown? You could be vaulted to royal status in your field or at the office, so put your name in the hat for that promotion. Summer lovin’ gets hotter than a blowtorch now too, and some Cancers could even be celebrating a proposal or pregnancy before the summer is half through.
Speak now! As communication planet Mercury moves into Cancer today until July 13, finding and using your voice becomes your primary focus. People may be surprised by this assertive new M.O., but they'll soon get used to it. Want to get an important message or idea into the zeitgeist? Try Facebook Live, podcasting, YouTubing, or strategically using social media. This cycle also motivates you to explore new avenues, from self-help seminars to coaching programs—all in the name of creating a life that truly excites you. It’s also a stellar time to invest in your personal growth, but no cutting corners! You may have to "wax on, wax off" for a while before you can claim pro status. Be patient: Nobody starts from the top.
Guilt is such a toxic emotion, Cancer. You don’t have to feel bad because you said no to someone or set a boundary. In spite of your nurturing nature, you weren’t put on Earth to do other people’s bidding. Besides, your true friends don’t need you to prove that you care. If you’re constantly jumping through hoops for people without proper gratitude or reciprocity, it’s time to pull back from these user-friendly relationships and cast your pearls elsewhere. On the bright side, a disappointing interaction may be the perfect incentive to defect from a clique and explore a new scene tonight.
Shhh! You may want to hold back from voicing your opinions on Saturday—especially if they're accusatory or inflammatory—as the moon in Gemini and your twelfth house of illusions forms a dicey square to Neptune. Despite your suspicions, you could be completely off the mark about what's actually happening. For best results, ask open-ended questions instead of leading with an uninformed opinion or a "hunch." And even if you're right, so what? You're not the only one who's feeling extra touchy under these stars, so you have to be careful about poking people's sensitive spots at the worst possible moment. On Sunday, give yourself over to daydreaming. Your imagination could carry you across the globe and back, thanks to the Sun in Cancer and your first house of self and identity forming a supportive trine to fantasy-fueled Neptune. Perhaps you find yourself remembering a long-forgotten desire to explore the far reaches of Patagonia, or swing from a hammock in a safari park in Botswana. Whether you take that trip or not isn't exactly the point. But in some way, make sure to stretch outside of your comfort zone on Sunday, veering away from the usual places and making a point to introduce yourself to people who captivate your interest. Start with a genuine compliment and see where it leads.
