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 2, 2019.
It's an intense kind of day thanks to a game-changing Solar Eclipse in Cancer taking place today at 3:16PM. Since this eclipse is also a New Moon, we can expect it to usher in swift changes that center on new opportunities and the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. However, as it goes, because of the wild card like energy that eclipses often carry, today (and the next few days afterward) could feel emotionally and physically unsettling, especially with the eclipse in emotional Cancer.
However, with the Cancer Moon teaming up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus at the start of the day, we should feel the pull towards something fresh and innovative. Between this Moon-Uranus combination and the solar eclipse, we're called to break free of the places we're we've become too comfortable or complacent out of a fear of losing our security. This cosmic combination encourages us to move into a new direction that is both more secure and emotionally fulfilling.
Of course, with the tension in the air now, it may be hard to keep calm and carry on. Luckily, any time the Moon is in tenderhearted and nurturing Cancer, it's a good time for giving and receiving the nurturing needed.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your July 2019 monthly horoscope.
