Daily Horoscopes for Thursday 19 July 2018

   Aries   Mar 21 - Apr 19
While this whole week continues to be a gold mine of potential across the income, work and career fronts, as well as home and family matters needing your attention, so too does your personal life. As Mercury moves into his final week in direct motion in your romantic sector, the planet of communication is taking his time, asking that you take matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative slowly. This is a chance to savour the moment, while the Moon stirs your emotional responses on the relationship front.
 
   Taurus   Apr 20 - May 20
While it is the Moon’s return to your relationship sector tomorrow that will help you really exploit the communication and relationship developments taking hold, this is something you already have a jump on. With Jupiter in his first full week in direct motion in your relationship sector and the Sun in his final week in your communication sector, they’re working together to give your relationships a voice and to move things forward.
 
   Gemini   May 21 - Jun 21
In the middle of an important week for not only income and job matters, but for home and financial matters as well, you would think there would be a danger of today’s playful and romantically charged lunar vibes going unnoticed. Not if Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has anything to say about it. In retrograde motion, Mars is on a mission to rekindle an old passion for adventure, linking with today’s lunar vibes to create a playful, romantic, passionate, adventurous and nostalgic vibe.
 
   Cancer   Jun 22 - Jul 22
It was three weeks ago that Mercury returned for what should have been a two week visit to your income sector, giving you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game. Yet long after Mercury should have moved on, this smart and intellectually savvy planet is instead slowing down ahead of next week’s retrograde turn. With the Sun returning early next week to throw the solar spotlight onto your income situation and matters, you have time to explore your options.
 
   Leo   Jul 23 - Aug 22
Just having the Moon in your communication sector as Mercury, planet of communication moves into his final week in direct motion in Leo is an advantage. A Mercury retrograde period can create the potential for mixed messages, misunderstandings and mistakes, with the more you can work now to ensure the communication lines are open the better. Yet what the Moon does is highlight a sense of anticipation, especially when it comes to a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
 
   Virgo   Aug 23 - Sep 22
Knowing that the month long wind down to your old solar year doesn’t even begin until early next week, gives Venus the freedom to play her time in Virgo her way. Venus will have been and gone before your birthday month and new solar year begins, giving her no part in the housekeeping that will take place then. Venus is free to set your heart on fire. You’re able to focus on the ‘what’, trusting that when the time comes you’ll figure out the ‘when, where and how’.
 
   Libra   Sep 23 - Oct 23
As Mercury, planet of communication slows down ahead of next week’s retrograde turn in your friendship sector, this is giving you a chance to do the same. When you have the thought to pick up the phone but you don’t have time or you find yourself saying to someone you bump into ‘I would love to stay and chat, but I don’t have time’, Mercury will suggest otherwise. You will be surprised by how richer your day becomes if you choose to make the time.
 
   Scorpio   Oct 24 - Nov 21
At the same time that Mercury is slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn in your career sector in a week from today, Eris is just two days away from turning retrograde on the job front. Across the professional front the pause button has been hit. Yet despite the fact that all three planets currently in your two professional houses will be in retrograde motion by the end of the week, this slow patch won’t last. The Sun’s return to your career sector early next week will outweigh any reflective phase, with a chance to pause, while you can.
 
   Sagittarius   Nov 22 - Dec 21
Three weeks ago Mercury returned for what should have been a two week visit to an adventurous part of your chart, yet a week after he should have left he is instead slowing down. As Mercury moves into his final week in direct motion, he’s preparing for a retrograde phase that will open the doors to the past and second chances. With the Sun returning next week, a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure is about to get some serious support, with the potential for new journeys a trip down memory lane ahead.
 
   Capricorn   Dec 22 - Jan 19
While Venus and Ceres are working together to keep the spirit of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure alive, they will both be watching with interest as the Moon moves through your career sector. With both returning over the coming months, Venus in less than three weeks' time, what they are interested in is the professional instincts and imagination being fuelled. When you add this to a sense of adventure in the air, there is a new sense of anticipation about the professional journey ahead.
 
   Aquarius   Jan 20 - Feb 18
While Mercury is responsible for some of the tension with Mars, in retrograde motion in Aquarius, you’ll eventually thank him for it. Instead of rushing through your relationship sector Mercury, planet of communication is instead slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn next week. While no longer opposed to Mars, there is enough tension to keep Mercury busy. A battle to balance your personal and relationship needs is underway, with Mercury on hand to give this a voice.
 
   Pisces   Feb 19 - Mar 20
Until the Sun returns to your work sector early next week, Mercury is not just the only planet here, but in either of your two professional houses. Slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn next week, Mercury has the brakes on and is urging you to stick to the speed limit. This doesn’t mean putting the brakes on yourself, rather working to the conditions. If you find yourself getting nowhere and you’re burning out with nothing to show for it, it might be that you need to slow down.
