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 9, 2019.
It could be a rather heavy kind of day today with the Sun in tenderhearted Cancer and the Moon in partnership-oriented Libra fighting things out with each other, as well as with no-nonsense Saturn and power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn.
Under this kind of cosmic weather we might feel unappreciated, a lack of confidence, or experience an imbalance of effort within a significant relationship. As a result, we may need to put in the work to draw better boundaries with others, offer compassion, express what we feel, or to bring in some much-needed objectivity. Luckily, optimistic Jupiter in Sagittarius and compassionate Neptune in Pisces will be on hand to help.
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)
A personal or professional relationship could be feeling the strain today, which could have you questioning the future of this connection. It's possible that you or the both of you need to take a step back and give each other a breather for the time being. Go with the flow.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You have a lot on your plate today and it could feel like you're spinning your wheels as a result. Try not to get too discouraged as the work you're putting in will be paying off. At the same time, if you need to redistribute your workload, do so. Get the help you need.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A romantic connection may not be all it's cracked up to be. The reason for this could be that you deserve something more. Know that it's possible for you to get it, especially if you hold yourself accountable to your values and standards. Overall, don't be afraid to ask for more.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A home- or family-related matter could have you at your wit's end today. Some boundaries may be needed when it comes to dealing with others. Also, make sure that you take time out to nourish yourself, as it will help to alleviate any stress. Don't underestimate yourself.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You might be obsessing on or over-analyzing something or someone. Know that worrying about it or trying to force the situation to go your way will only make matter worse. For now, it's best to release control and detach from the need for a specific outcome. Find your joy.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
If a current romantic interest or situation has you questioning your worth or leaving little to be desired, recognize that you don't have to settle. Know that there's someone out there better suited for you. In terms of your creative talents, be mindful of underselling yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be feeling the pressure today when it comes to the demands of your professional and private lives. Before you become too overwhelmed, it may help to speak up and let people know what you're feeling and what you need. Guard your energy. Focus on your well-being.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your thoughts might be heavy today, but it's possible that you could be making something out to be bigger than it really is. If you can afford to wait on making a decision now, it may be best to do so until you have more clarity on the situation. Take a time out.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You might be presented with an opportunity or find yourself in a situation today where you feel like the odd duck out. As a result, you could end up questioning your values or your worth. As long as you believe in your own power, you can't go wrong. Find your tribe.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You might be feeling some pressure today when it comes to your career or a current goal you're trying to reach. If you want to stay on track, it's important that you only surround yourself with people today that can offer you support or encouragement. Keep the faith.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It may seem like something you're envisioning or working on isn't coming together the way that you want, which could be causing you a lot of doubt and worry. If things are moving slow or not moving at all, that's OK. It just means you need to reevaluate what you're doing.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You might be questioning your ability to hack it now, perhaps due to a financial issue or the lack of support that you may be receiving from others. The important thing is to reach down deep and find the strength to believe in yourself. You're closer to your goal than you think.
