In this daily horoscope for July 8, Bustle’s resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here’s a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
Today calls us to take some time to reflect and check in with ourselves, as the moon moves home to intuitive and tenderhearted Cancer by mid-morning. As we gear up for July’s new moon in Cancer, we’re encouraged to focus on our emotional well-being and the close bonds that we share with others. As hopeful Jupiter in Pisces teams up with the moon by the afternoon, we get a nudge to seek out people and experiences that uplift us.
Although, if we’re feeling moody or tender, we should take it slow and try to avoid anything triggering or upsetting. But this could be difficult to do, as spicy Venus in Leo faces off with shocking Uranus in Taurus by the late afternoon. As a result, people may not be on their best behavior. However, we can expect this Venus-Uranus mashup to highlight the broken relationships that we need to leave behind, as well as any stressful issues that we need to address. Doing so will foster the security and emotional fulfillment that we’re seeking.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
You could be feeling like an outcast today or feeling like you don’t quite know where you belong. Remember that home is a place that exists within you. Drop in.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You might not be on the same page with a family member today, which could have you ready to part ways. Seek out the people who support and encourage you.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Be mindful of hiding or shrinking yourself today out of a fear of what others think. You’ve got something special about you, and it’s time to put it out there.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

How can you switch up your routines to foster more joy in your life? Perhaps it’s time to let go of a unfulfilling or stagnant job situation in favor of something better.
