We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for July 11, 2019.
"Intensity" might be the word of the day with the Moon in all-or-nothing Scorpio and aggressive Mars in Leo squaring off with unconventional Uranus in Taurus by the mid-afternoon. With the Moon in Scorpio heightening our emotions, it might be hard to avoid losing our cool under this Mars-Uranus combination.
Luckily, the Moon teams up with pragmatic Saturn in Capricorn, as well as compassionate Neptune in Pisces and the Sun in tenderhearted Cancer to help us find the objectivity or sensitivity we need to keep the peace. However, if we need to accomplish something that requires an innovative or a fresh approach, this Mars-Uranus combination can give us the boost that we need. And with the Scorpio Moon teaming up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn by the evening, we should find the determination we need to press forward as well.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your July 2019 monthly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
What you might have wanted in terms of an intimate relationship could change now, which could either help you to access a deeper form of intimacy or give you the opportunity to release an unhealthy relationship or pattern around relationships. Also, hold on to your cash.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You might be wondering if a family relationship gives you the freedom to truly be yourself. If it doesn't, it might be time to make changes within the relationship that helps you with reclaiming your independence. Talking thing out could bring positive results.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You have a lot of great ideas and a lot to say but are you holding yourself back out of a fear of how you'll be perceived by others? Remember, you have lots that you bring to the table. Honor your worth and what you have to offer. Too, a little discipline now goes a long way.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You might feel like a bit of an outsider today but you're called to break free of old programming getting in the way of you being recognized for the things that make you unique. There's no need for outside validation. By daring to set the trend, others will have no choice but to follow you.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You might be ready to take a risk or switch gears when it comes to your career or a professional goal. However, in order for you to make things happen, you'll have to come from a grounded and confident place. Take a moment to slow down and think things over. Listen to your intuition.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might be ready to go the lone wolf route today as you might be worried that the only one that can be trusted to get things right is yourself. However, you may be cutting yourself off from the support and feedback that you need right now. Take a different approach.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your values are changing and these changes are pushing you to become more intentional about who and what you're willing to spend your resources on. If you're not getting an equitable return on the investment that you're putting into something, release it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The spotlight is on you and your needs now and to get those needs met, you may need to change how you connect with others. It could be possible that you need to distance yourself from someone today. In terms of your professional life, don't let others rattle your confidence.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may need to fall back a bit today and give yourself some time to recharge your batteries. Taking a moment to rest can help you to avoid making a snap decision, taking on a unnecessary project, or taking on work that may be more trouble than what it's worth. Take it easy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
A romantic relationship may not be able to offer the depth or intimacy that you're seeking now. And while you usually have no trouble with digging in your heels and getting what you want, this isn't a situation that you want to force. Besides, there's something better coming.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You're focused on your professional goals, and it's possible that you're getting close to completing one. However, if you want to succeed, you may need to be mindful of letting someone in your life distract you from getting where you're going. Seek out those that fuel you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You might have a lot on your plate now and it can be easy to get overwhelmed if you're trying to do everything all at once. For now, keep the multitasking and big decision making to a minimum. Consider today as your excuse to relax a bit and have some fun.
