Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday July 3, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

If you find yourself on the verge of screaming, try a different tack: laughing! There’s humor to be found in any situation, even if it’s satirical or just getting real about the utter absurdity of th human existence. This will not only distract you from the troubling situation but will reset your nervous system and help you detach. With competitive Pluto in your collaborative zone, your standards may need some downward adjustment. And thanks to its one-day opposition with buzzy Mercury in your playful fifth house, hilarity really is the best medicine!

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

What’s the secret every savvy manager knows? Delegating is a must! Today, as intuitive Mercury in Leo swings into its annual opposition with power player Pluto in your career house, you might decide you’re sick and tired of trying to DIY so many tasks. But you don’t want to randomly assign key aspects of a project to potentially unqualified people. True, it might take a little more time to figure out who’s right for what, but in the long run, it can save much effort—and aggravation.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

If you’re persistently fixated on the future, you won’t make the most of the present—let alone get to enjoy it! Today, as mindful Mercury in Leo forms its annual opposition to hyper-focused Pluto, turn your attention to the here-and-now and pick one major thing you can drill down on. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have long-term goals—they ARE, ultimately, your GPS—but it’s important to concentrate on the steps you’re taking today.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

If money has been slipping between your fingers, it’s not only important to pay attention to where it’s going, but also to get a handle on the emotions that are connected to your mindless—or less than totally mindful—spending. Under today’s opposition between logical Mercury in your income sector and incisive Pluto in your house of long-term wealth, you might be able to reprioritize your cash flow AND get a deeper understanding of any sense of lack that may be driving your habits. This curious transit could send you down a rabbit hole, so learn everything you can about topics like crypto, real estate and other investing strategies.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

With Mercury sailing through your sign, you’re expressing yourself in an upbeat and confident manner. You’ve earned every right to do so, Leo, but make sure it doesn’t conflate into acting cocky. Nobody likes a know-it-all, and that’s the LAST thing you want to be pegged as! Today, as Mercury locks into a tricky opposition with piercing Pluto in your partnership house, your closest relationships can act as mirrors. Up for a challenge? Think about the behaviors you most resent in others, and then take a good look at whether just maybe it’s because you dislike that trait in yourself.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Have you been giving so much you’re starting to feel depleted, Virgo? That’s always your first clue—or maybe the FINAL one—that something is out of balance with a key person in your life. Your sign loves to be of service, and occasionally you don’t realize when a “taker” type is reaping a few too many benefits of that. Today, as social Mercury (your ruler) forms its annual opposition with calculating Pluto, you’ll be reminded of the essential value of firm and fair boundaries.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Under today’s opposition of buzzy Mercury in your teamwork zone and obsessive Pluto in your fifth house of creativity and fame, you’re torn between getting a collaborative project done on time and done to near-perfection. This flashing yellow light is a cosmic warning that someone on your crew may not be taking their work as seriously as you’re taking yours. Pull them aside and have a word: kind, knowing, yet firm. If you’ve already been through this a few times, you may have to spell out the consequences of not shaping up.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Your ambitions are dialed up as chatty Mercury soars through your house of professional prominence. You’re eager to take a bold next step and allow yourself to be publicly acknowledged—not always easy with your humble “it takes a village” mentality. But as Mercury spins into its annual opposition with competitive Pluto today, you’re reminded to not get ahead of yourself and ensure you have a safety net—and support network—in place before taking any leaps of faith.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Hold your fire—even if your ire is up, Sag! Someone might be getting under your skin, and you may be dying to let them have an unfiltered piece of your mind. But given today’s cosmic restraining order—i.e., an opposition between mouthy Mercury and strategic Pluto in your communication sectors—you are urged to take the high road. Impulsive rants or mean-spirited posts are likely to boomerang and only serve to make YOU look bad. Not worth it!

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Capricorn, but acting “as if” you’re flush with cash doesn’t guarantee that your bank account will grow. In fact, too much splurging can set you back, an inconvenient truth you may have been experiencing recently. But good—if restraining—news arrives with today’s belt-tightening opposition between bean-counting Mercury and comptroller Pluto across your financial axis. It’s never too late to rein in your spending and get serious about sticking to a budget. Just make sure you aren’t depriving yourself of ALL pleasure in the process.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

Ready to turn your solo mission into a collaborative effort? Then think in terms of “complement” rather than “clone,” Aquarius. Today’s revelatory opposition of intuitive Pluto in your sign and curious Mercury in your relationship house prompts you to consider people who don’t normally catch your attention. Remember, you don’t have to see eye-to-eye on every decision for this to be a fruitful alliance. But you should be the same page when it comes to values, work ethic and expectations!

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday July 3

You hate having to follow protocol simply because “that’s how it’s done around here.” Your indie-spirited sign knows how to think for yourself, and, in doing so, you often come up with an approach that’s smarter/faster/easier. Today, when cautious Pluto locks into an edgy opposition with analytical Mercury in your systematic sixth house, think twice before you take matters into your own hands. True, you might save some time or money, but if you alienate potential supporters, it may not be worth it.
