Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Surrender, Leo, and open your heart. Today an alliance of romantic Venus and dreamy Neptune forms in the most intimate zones of your chart. As much as you like to be in charge, you're happy to take the passenger seat, allowing someone else to step into the top dog role. Giving and receiving support is the theme of the day, whether it's with a significant other, a family member or a close friend. Someone could confess a secret or unload an emotional burden, which could be incredibly healing for you both. Hold space if you're the listener, and bring all of your heartfelt compassion to the conversation. The only downside of this empathetic day is that you're liable to soak up people's emotions like a sponge. Make sure to "clear" yourself after any intense conversations with a soak in a sea salt bath, a fifteen minute solo walk, or just a few deep inhales and exhales.
Sometimes your people-pleasing instincts take over, and you end up silencing your true opinions to get along. But things are different today, Leo. With a merger of the moon and unpredictable Uranus in your candid ninth house, the truth could leave your lips long before you have a chance to filter it. Once it’s out in the world, there’s no turning back—and that will actually feel freeing! Just remember to inject a bit of diplomacy into the dialogue—it will work to your advantage.
Shake out the welcome mat, Leo. Today stressful Mars ends a two-and-a-half month retrograde, and shifts back into drive. Until August 2, the red planet will pulse through your domestic zone, bringing momentum for those stalled household projects or the motivation to deal with a move to a happier dwelling. But look out! Family feuds that have been simmering under the surface could combust over the coming five weeks. Getting everything out in the open can definitely clear the air, as long as you cool down before addressing the conflict. Timing—and delivery—are everything.
Next stop: the imagination station. Today expressive Mercury moves into your twelfth house of the subconscious until July 13. Be it journaling, painting or composing songs, tap into your creative side and you could be struck with a personal breakthrough moment. You might require extra emotional support during this cycle, so consider booking sessions with a therapist, spiritual advisor or even a holistic healer. Forgiveness is also a major theme now. Don’t brush away any of the tough stuff that might surface, or these unresolved emotions could turn into physical complaints. Shower yourself with extra TLC.
Make a wish! Today’s moon in your eleventh house helps you telegraph your requests to the universe. Don’t downplay your desires for fear that you can’t have what you actually want. It’s better to overshoot the mark than to underestimate what you’re capable of receiving. The likely outcome? You’ll surpass the bounds of your own imagination—especially when you clue your community into what you’re going after. Tonight make a point of connecting to a new friend group, too. Your world will feel exponentially bigger the minute you start expanding your social horizons.
Money and friendship don't always mix. On Saturday, the moon in Gemini and your eleventh house of social action forms a tricky square to illusory Neptune, impairing your fiscal judgment around a group activity. Perhaps your pals are plotting a pricey vacation or an epic evening that's out of your budget. Yet, you’re tempted to splurge anyway. Or maybe a big deal is zooming ahead, when a friend's opinion splashes icy water on your plans. You could also get so caught up in being there for someone that you ignore your responsibilities at home. Moderation is a must this weekend, Leo, for the sake of your savings and your sanity. On Sunday, sip green tea instead of another double espresso. You may be hypersensitive to stimulants, thanks to the Sun in Cancer and your twelfth house of healing and the subconscious, forming a trine to escapist Neptune. Everything feels a little surreal—and even a little magical—so stay serene and in the flow of it all. Allow yourself to drift into reveries, without putting pressure on yourself to act. Sometimes it’s enough to go for a restorative walk with your headphones on, or even to indulge in a nap (your dreams could be vivid!). Water nourishes your soul, so head to the nearest H2O if you can. Don't be surprised if you wind up penning song lyrics or creating some pretty impressive art after you've relaxed your mind.
