Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Sink into your comfy chair, put your feet up, make yourself at home, Ram! Today’s new moon in Cancer and your fourth house of roots stokes your domestic instincts. On a deeper level, this is a call to slow down and ground yourself. Even you, the trailblazer of the zodiac, needs to occasionally unplug and recharge your batteries. Take a look around. Could your nest stand some feathering? Your home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can retreat from the world and express yourself. If it needs a little softening or beautifying, get started on that mission now

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Thoughts and words create your reality, Bull, and today’s Cancer new moon in your third house of communication can help you sharpen your message. But first, take time for a little mindfulness. Download a guided meditation to lead you through breathing exercises that help you examine your thought processes. The third house also rules socializing, especially locally. New friends could enter your orbit, or you could be invited to join a fun group that you’ve been interested in.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Today’s new moon in Cancer and your second house of money and stability sets up a six-month cycle that’s ripe for advancement. But before you can speed ahead, Gemini, you need to get clear about your destination. Are you happy with your current career status? Where would you like to be a year from now? You don’t have to do anything rash (in fact, DON’T), but the clearer your roadmap, the more likely you’ll be to reach your goals with the fewest distractions and detours.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Today’s Cancer new moon marks your personal cosmic New Year. This is one of the most powerful days of 2024 to get a project off the ground—or turn over ANY kind of new leaf. Because your introspective sign functions best when you mull things over privately, take some time today to sit quietly and make a list of intentions. Seeds you plant today are powerhouses of potential, so focus on what you’d like to manifest by the corresponding full moon in Cancer six months from now.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Life could get a bit surreal today, Leo, but adopt a “go with the flow” approach and see where it takes you. As the year’s only Cancer new moon lands in your twelfth house of mysticism, fantasy and healing, you could be lightning-struck by a brilliant notion or creative inspiration. To help you tune in, build some slack into your day and keep a notebook, sketchbook or recording app close at hand. If you’ve got some forgiving to do, or ask for, this is a perfect time as new moons bring fresh starts, and Cancer is one of the most compassionate signs of all.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

You love your inner circle, Virgo, but if you’ve been hoping to widen your reach, today’s Cancer new moon in your eleventh house of social activity can point the way to a whole new scene. Of course, you have to do the legwork. People aren’t going to find you holed up in your cubicle or on your sofa. Screw up the courage to knock on the metaphoric door of a certain crowd or organization you’ve been eyeballing. Surrounding yourself with supportive allies makes everything easier—and usually a lot more fun!

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

No question you’ve got game, Libra—but can you walk your talk? Today, the year’s only new moon in Cancer lands with a drumroll in your ambitious tenth house, setting the stage for six months of professional growth. By early 2025, you could be heading for the C-suite—or be working from a black-sand beach. The catch? You need to actually have the skills and talents to earn this. Get the required training or experience now, then let the manifesting begin!

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Freaking out about events that haven’t happened yet may make you feel like you’re in control, but being frozen with fear or anxiety about something that might not even happen sounds like the opposite of control to us, Scorpio! You can turn that apprehensive battleship around under today’s new moon in Cancer, which stokes your visionary, confident, adventurous ninth house. Embrace the spirit of spontaneity and practice being in the “now.”

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

No more ugly sandals, please—no matter how blah you feel (or how ironically you don them). What your soul needs is a sexy makeover! You won’t need much coaxing today as the year’s only new moon in Cancer pokes your erotic eighth house and brings your Sag sizzle back. But your magnetism isn’t superficial. Over the next six months, the period ruled by the new moon, you’ll kick off a new cycle of intimacy and take an important relationship to the next level. Single? You might not be by the time the New Year’s ball drops!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Buddy up, Capricorn. Today brings the only Cancer new moon of the year and fires up your seventh house of dynamic duos. You may believe you’re better working (or playing) on your own, but this lunar lift can bring a change of heart—and status! Cancer is the sentimentalist of the zodiac, and you might be feeling in the mood to team up. Whether in business or romance, you’ll start looking at potential partners in a new light. Attached? Drop your steely guard and do something uncharacteristically demonstrative.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Career reinvention time! You’re the last person to march to the beat of someone else’s bongos, Water Bearer. And today, as the only Cancer new moon of the year energizes your sixth house of work and service, you may seek to hit the refresh button on what you do from 9 to 5 (or noon to 8 or whatever). Tired of being lower on the totem pole than you’d like? Launch a venture and you’ll be the boss. If you bill on an hourly or per-diem basis, raise your rates and work smarter, not harder.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Friday July 5

Here’s a fashion tip from the year’s only Cancer new moon in your romantic fifth house: Wear your heart on your sleeve. Your mate or date can’t read your mind, Pisces (even if you can read theirs). Need to feel more fulfilled or loved? Put it out there! If someone can’t or won’t “go” there, isn’t it better to find out now? Whether your heart desires a ring or co-habitating, share your feelings. You may be pleasantly surprised by the reaction.
