Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

A social uptick is in the stars for this July 4 as the moon spends the daytime hours in Gemini and your outgoing third house. Hit the pool parties and barbecues on the early side, though. By late afternoon EDT, the moon shifts into Cancer and your domestic fourth house. You’ll be in the mood to slip away from the crowds and continue celebrations at home. Flex your culinary skills and throw something on the grill, or call up a few of your most comfortable crew members and make it a spontaneous potluck. Done with the festivities? Catch a nap or a few more pages of your novel, then head out for fireworks if you can keep your eyelids open.

Is there a grill guru or prep cook in the house? Taurus reporting for duty! You could be “running production” on the July 4 festivities this morning and early afternoon. The moon is in Gemini and your industrious second house, which could put you to work. There’s a silver lining to answering the call of duty early. By late afternoon EDT, the moon zips into Cancer and your third house of communication, awakening your social side. You can freely make the rounds, mingle or jump into the cornhole competition with nary an ounce of guilt. Beanbags aweigh!

Revel in some “me-first time” this morning while the moon rounds out a two-and-a-half-day stint in your sign. If you feel like roaming freely and not being tied to any elaborate plans, the stars approve! Late afternoon EDT, the moon power-glides into Cancer and your industrious second house, spurring you to take a concrete step toward developing the ideas you’ve been kicking around.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

Ease into the July 4 holiday, Crab. The moon is in Gemini and your sleepy twelfth house until late afternoon EDT, and you’re probably in no mood for parades and potlucks and pools. But when the moon swings into Cancer before dinnertime, your energy blazes up like a bin of charcoal briquets doused in lighter fluid. Rest up and hydrate all day, then get ready for an active evening. You could be holding court and mingling well after the town fireworks have ended. Midnight skinny dip, anyone?

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

Celebrate the July 4 holiday basking in the rays of your cosmic ruler. Your energy levels are at their highest during the daytime, peaking late afternoon. With the moon in Gemini and your social eleventh house, you’ll happily play entertainment director. Wake up for an early bike ride or catch the town parade with friends. Head to potlucks with a special dessert and jump into a volleyball or croquet match. Make sure to hydrate! At 4:52 pm EDT, all the activity catches up to you and the moon slips into Cancer, activating your sleepy twelfth house. You could fizzle out before the fireworks go off—and if you make the most of today, you might just sleep right through them.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

Nothing wrong with a three-day workweek…except when you’re as busy as Virgos are this summer! The July 4 holiday could feel like a much-needed break AND an irksome interruption to your ambitious goals. (Is everyone’s autoresponder on this week or what?!) Breathe, Virgo, and trust that people will be back online, refreshed and eager to hear your grand ideas next week. Just before 5:00 pm EDT, the winds shift, and your social side returns right as burgers start sizzling on the grill for dinner. Thank the moon’s move into Cancer and your eleventh house of group activity. Text your friends that you WILL join them for fireworks after all.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

So many invites, so little time! With the moon in Gemini and your expansive ninth house, an abundance of July 4 invites could both excite and overwhelm you. A juicy last-minute travel option could come in that tempts you to brave holiday traffic or catch a quick flight. Think this one through, Libra. Just before dinnertime EDT, the moon will shift into Cancer and your responsible, regimented tenth house. A work “emergency” could come through (why, oh why, did you check your email?), or you just may not be in social spirits anymore. That said, if there’s an opportunity to rub sun-kissed elbows with some VIPs, go the extra mile and mix business with pleasure.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

You’re not feeling all that social as July 4 begins thanks to the moon in your intense and intimate eighth house. Who says you have to go out into the parades and parties anyway? Your ideal way to take advantage of this day off could be disappearing into your blissful private cocoon. That could all change, however, around dinnertime. At 4:52 pm ET, the moon shifts into Scorpio and your adventurous, expansive ninth house. If you were on the fence about traveling over the long weekend, wanderlust could set in. Why not rent a car for a day trip or take your friend up on that offer for a night at her beach house? It’s YOUR Independence Day now—at least, as far as the stars are concerned!

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

Who’s making Grandma’s famous potato salad from scratch, assembling the volleyball net and volunteering at the voter registration booth after the town parade? This July 4 has “acts of service” written all over it as the moon spends most of the day in Gemini and your helpful sixth house. By late afternoon EDT, you can stop answering the call of duty. The moon will drift into Cancer and your partnership house, just in time. No need to overextend yourself when a willing (and possibly attractive) companion is eager to support your efforts.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

The fireworks won’t be waiting for sundown this July 4. With the moon spending the daytime hours in Gemini and your passionate, colorful fifth house, things could get spicy from the moment you wake up. Let your theatrical side out to play and entertain everyone. By the time the dinner bell rings, however, you could be sobering up—literally and figuratively. Just before 5 pm EDT, the moon moves into Cancer and your healthy, organized sixth house. Suddenly those cocktails and grilled jumbo hot dogs you were craving could lose their appeal. Distance yourself from divas and drama queens who might be at the party.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday July 4

Current mood: red, white and mostly blue? This July 4 could find you in contemplative spirits, even stuck stewing in your own juices. You might have the urge to brood while the moon lingers in your emo fourth house during the day. But good luck hanging onto that cloud later this afternoon. When the moon spins into Cancer and your fun-loving fifth house, your sunny spirit will be restored. Take charge of a floundering mission or just break off and go play with people who share your high-vibe perspective.
