Your daily horoscopes for Monday July 8, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Yes, you have a vision, Aries, and a damn fine one at that. Today, however, being too headstrong about pushing your agenda could alienate potential collaborators. At the very least, listen to their ideas and try them on. You might not wind up compromising much, or at all, but by allowing others to be heard, you’ll find that they are more amenable to giving your plans a go. Then again, your peeps might just help you upgrade your mission.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

You’re raring to go, but an anxious person could keep you stalled at the gates today. With speedy Mars in Taurus squaring off against the moon in your emotional fourth house, you’ll need to slow down and be sensitive. What’s underneath this person’s resistance to your speeding off into the sunset? Some worries that they need to get off their chest and some hurt feelings that need tending to or reassuring. Although it feels irritating, stop and hear her out. Once you’re both on the same page, she’ll be your biggest ally and champion and you’ll love having her in your corner.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Before you declare something “so done!” and stick a fork in it, get a second opinion. A creative and thoughtful friend can help you view the situation from a different light. Perhaps this is a huge learning experience. Even if you DO move on, it’s better to do so from a place of gratitude than one of frustration. Today’s tense but enlightening moon-Mars square is all about thinking outside the box instead of following a conventional path.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Just when it seemed like everyone was on the same page, boom! Today’s moon-Mars square could bring a disruption to the harmony of Team Cancer. The problem here? Assumptions. (And you know what they say about those…) This is where your nurturing skills come in handy. Order take out and gather everyone around the table. Then, give each person involved a chance to vocalize fears, feelings and desires for the future. Being heard and respected paves the way for a co-created solution to emerge, one that you can all align on.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Impatient much, Leo? You can see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but that doesn’t mean you’re ready to nab it yet. Don’t cheat yourself out of important learning experiences by taking shortcuts or skipping steps. The victory will feel hollow if you take that route. Today, take a deep breath and follow protocol. Making important allies along the way (and refusing to step on their backs as you ascend the ladder) can help you lock in this victory for the long haul.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Fantasy or reality? Today’s moon-Mars square makes it hard to decipher exactly what is true and what is a figment of your imagination. Avoid making final judgment calls on anything and if it’s possible to stall big decisions for a day (or at least until the evening) by all means do. While you can never predict the future 100 percent, there are a few hidden facts to unearth. Ask the big, important and scary questions to find out what page people are really on here.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Sneaking around could trip you up today, Libra, so make sure you’re being honest rather than strategic. People deserve to know that full story and could get really angry at you if they feel you’re hiding information. Although it can be scary to lay all your cards on the table (especially since that means risking “rejection” or getting a no when you want to hear a yes), doing so is the only way to build trust with the people who matter most in your world.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Romantic and social distractions abound, and you could be pulled away from your goals by your desire to connect with people. Alas, you’ll need to stay on top of your game, Scorpio, as a moon-Mars square moves an outstanding task to Mission: Critical status. If you can’t seem to stop talking to someone, set up a dinner or coffee date and put it on the calendar so you know that the plan to continue connecting is set in stone.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Today’s moon-Mars square finds you being cautious and conservative about an issue that felt open and expansive yesterday. It’s wise to do the checks and balances before jumping right in. You tend to be overly optimistic by nature and this due diligence can help you feel more confident about the decision you ultimately make. Although your instinct might be to say, “Sure! Why not?” answer with “Let me get back to you on that” then go meditate on it for a day.

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

True romance or sweet, ephemeral nothings? Today’s moon-Mars square makes it easy to confuse a fling for the real thing. Don’t allow yourself to be carried off by a smooth talker’s promises. You’re smarter than that, Capricorn, so do the requisite research to see if these pledges can really be trusted. Time will tell so this may also involve some major willpower as you reign in your immediate desires and allow a relationship to develop slowly and organically.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Although you’re feeling overloaded, today’s tense standoff between the moon and Mars could find you resistant to the idea of partnering up with people and getting the help you need. Something’s gotta give, Aquarius, as you don’t have the bandwidth to take this on by yourself. Set clear expectations with people on the front end: what do you want and need from them and what would you prefer to keep handling yourself? With clear communication, you could hit your dynamic duo stride.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday July 8

Today’s moon-Mars square gives you the gift of gab but could find you making promises you have no idea how to keep. Work the crowds, Pisces, but be mindful of the words coming out of your mouth. You don’t have to say yes, then fake it til’ you make it. Better to reply with, “Let me get back to you on that” then to get yourself tangled up in obligations you simply can’t fulfill.
