Today’s daily horoscope for July 9, 2024

Must read

Planetary Power Shifts

There’s a lunar pull to Pluto. Poor Pluto. Once a planet, demoted. And can you think of a time in your life when you felt brought down a notch or two? Well, no king lives forever, and no politician holds office infinitely. Recognizing the rise and fall is the theme of the day. In whatever ways, big or small, these movements of power are natural and best accepted with grace.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There seems to be no end to the number of tricky, sticky situations to be navigated today. It will help to have a unifying chat in the mirror with the soul behind the eyes.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What if it was just all about the fun? Would it really change the trajectory that much? If inclined to move based on the potential for fun, what direction would you go?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Pride is tricky. Displays of pride can actually signal in the opposite direction, a trajectory lacking self-confidence. The truly confident don’t need to talk about it. Today features a kind of quiet satisfaction.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be put in a position. Say yes and you’ll say it again and again. Say no and it will be the last time. The second way is better, causing you less stress overall, but of course, it’s harder.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Goals are good to have but also optional. Many successful people keep their goals flexible and life becomes more about exploring paths than obtaining things. It’s smart, and it leads to feelings of freedom.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you like yourself a real lot, it’s no problem getting on your own team. And honestly, what’s not to like? Everything you were doing was in your own defense. Believe it because it’s true.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you’ve ever worked out too hard or eaten too much, you understand how the choices in the moment don’t always please the person who has to live with them. Thinking ahead to what “next-day” you will say will be prudent.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be inspired to make fresh choices. You wouldn’t normally dedicate yourself to the pursuit of pleasure, and the novelty of this is what makes this so fun. You’ll react quickly to news and find yourself in a privileged position.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to divulge your story to everyone who wants to know about it, but at the same time, it’s nice to know people are curious. Yes, they are! There will be benefits to acts of sharing and caring beyond the obvious ones.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The first time you do a thing, it seems to take a lot longer. The freshness of a new experience always changes perception. Novelty makes moments stretch. Break the routine. Variety is a must for a memorable life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t always get to see the impact you have on others, which can occur at a distance or so subtly it goes undetected even while making a remarkable difference. Sometimes, it takes people years to recognize an effect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your first impression on a situation will be strong. Note it. If you do this formally, with an actual note, you’ll be very impressed with what comes of it. There is more to learn here, and you’re playing a long game.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 9). You’ll experience more joy than ever this year. Your love of the natural world shines, and you’ll lend a sense of hope, care and progress to environments you interact in. You also define “progress” in a meaningful way that catches on with others. More highlights: a genuine confidante, the victorious end of a battle, five excellent events and one that’s wildly successful. Scorpio and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 30, 21, 15 and 9.
