In this daily horoscope for July 1, 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.
With the moon in enthusiastic and ambitious Aries today, we might be raring to go. Nevertheless, assertive Mars (the planetary ruler of Aries) is currently in passionate Leo, and Mars in Leo is sitting in a tough opposition to hard-nosed Saturn in Aquarius for the entire day. As a result, we might find it difficult to follow through with a plan, especially if those plans are rushed or we’re looking for instantaneous results. It could also be difficult or get along with others too. The kind of pent-up frustration that this Mars-Saturn combo can create will be hard to avoid. Plus, emotions will be high as the fiery Aries moon faces off with the sun in moody Cancer by the late afternoon.
The best way to navigate the stressful energy of the day is to lean into the cool-headed energy of Saturn in Aquarius, by disengaging from unnecessary drama and not taking anything too personally. With the moon in Aries alongside this Mars-Saturn aspect, it can be a great time for doing anything that requires some extra focus and discipline, as both Mars and Saturn love a challenge. By later tonight, the Aries moon takes turns in teaming up with Saturn in Aquarius, Mars in Leo, and Chiron in wounded Aries. Together, these planets encourage us seek out people and activities that can help us with blowing off some steam.
If you’re feeling moody today, take some time to yourself and find what makes you happy. Otherwise, you can end up unintentionally taking your frustration out on others.
Today’s demands can have you feeling worse for wear. If so, step back from the fray. Take a moment to drop down into yourself and find your footing. Ask for a shoulder to lean on.
It might be hard to be optimistic about the future with so much uncertainty in the air, but trust that you’re moving forward at the right pace. Don’t try to rush or force the process.
Take care that you don’t get too discouraged today in trying to achieve a financial goal. You can still get where you want to be. It might just take a little longer.
Don’t let naysayers or negative people upset you today. Whatever they’re saying says more about them than you. Pay more attention to constructive feedback or advice.
Be mindful of overextending yourself today in helping others. Save a little something for yourself. Recognizing your limitations will save you from unnecessary stress.
It might be necessary to exercise some boundaries with a friend or someone you know today, especially if they’ve been coming on strong with an overbearing attitude. Be firm.
Try not to use work as a way of avoiding your feelings today. It’s best to sit with what you’re feeling and work through it rather than trying to compartmentalize. Take care of yourself.
You might need to pick and choose your battles today, as you could be giving too much attention to the wrong things. Focus on things that foster joy. You don’t have to be plugged into everything.
Your insecurities could be triggered today. If you’re wondering how you measure up to what someone else is doing or achieving, you’re doing just fine. Don’t shortchange yourself.
Others could be extra pushy or demanding with you today. You have the right not to entertain it. Move at your own pace. People will have no choice but to respect your approach.
If your plans or dreams are taking too long to manifest, the delay could actually be more of a blessing than a curse. Sometimes rushing your way through something can do more harm than good.
