Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Tempted to dive into a partnership without having adequate intel? While today's mashup of romanticizer Venus and supersizer Jupiter may inspire you to take a risk, slow your roll and make it a reality check instead. You'll always be drawn to interesting, charismatic people, Cancer; that's just who you are. The trick is using your discernment before you're in over your head. Pace yourself, even if you're feeling the love. Your instincts may be spot-on, but at least you won't overwhelm yourself.
Too hot to handle? Lusty Mars turns retrograde in your erotic zone, pulling the emergency brake on anything that doesn't hold out the promise of true intimacy. This forced slowdown, which lasts until August 27, brings hidden blessings. For one thing, you'll have the time your sensitive sign needs to figure out if this is really the right thing for you. Plus, waiting can build up heat! Long-attached couples have the opportunity to work through triggering issues neither of you was willing to broach in the past. But with fiery Mars off-course, plan on taking cooldown breaks in between talks.
Mirror, mirror? Under today's awakening opposition of the Cancer Sun and take-no-prisoners Saturn, someone close to you could reflect something unsettling back to you. Instead of pushing them away, ask yourself: What is the message this person is revealing to me? Maybe the thing that irks you about them is something that YOU need to work on in yourself. Resist the urge to write people off too quickly. Just because you lock horns doesn't mean they should be ousted from the Cancer realm. Even the most rock-solid relationships hit a rough patch every now and then.
Relationships come under the microscope today as 2018's only Capricorn full moon powers up your seventh house of committed partnerships. These lunar lifts bring powerful moments of manifestation or turning points. If you've been on the fence about a budding romance, you'll get clarity quickly. A business alliance could turn serious now, so make sure you know what YOU want out of the deal. Couples should have a future-oriented chat to see if your long-term goals are in sync.
Keep your mind on your money—literally. Today, mental Mercury beams into Leo and your second house of income and practical matters. Bring your considerable concentration to the bottom line. The messenger planet will hold court here until July 9, and during this time you could turn one of your most promising ideas into something viable—and profitable! This transit can also open doors for meetings with influential people, so work up your courage and reach out to the appropriate contacts!
A little privacy please! With an introspective Aquarius moon illuminating your internal eighth house all weekend, you may be a little more sensitive than usual to other people's energy. If you don't NEED to interact with others, go ahead and retreat into your shell, Cancer. It's your prerogative! Just don't get so comfy-cozy in there that you accidentally-on-purpose forget to come out. Excitable Mars connects to the moon on Saturday and could draw you back into the action—possibly to reconnect with a sexy someone from your past! Easy does it with the retail therapy on Sunday. With pleasure-loving Venus distracting the moon, you won't have much willpower in the face of pretty, shiny things. If you're going to splurge, make an entertainment budget.
