Daily Horoscope: Wednesday, July 8, 2020

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions until 2:30 PM EDT today (11:30 AM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Delays and silly goof ups at home are taking place now because of Mercury retrograde. Likewise, relatives might be camped on your couch. This could be why domestic arguments might flare up today. Try to avoid these if you can to keep happy household. Eh wot?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Life is frustrating for you now because Mercury retrograde is creating transportation delays, car problems, flat tires, missed buses and cancelled appointments, to name just a few examples. Communications with others will be confused. Avoid arguments today. Stay frosty.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Disputes about money and possessions might arise today. In part, you are frustrated because Mercury retrograde is causing money hassles for you. Cheques in the mail will be late. Silly errors related to money might occur. You might even lose money. Bummer.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Avoid arguments with parents, teachers, bosses or the police today because you need this like a fish needs a bicycle. With Mercury being retrograde in your sign, naturally you feel frustrated. You're not losing it. It's classic for you to misplace items, miss appointments and forget things right now. It is what it is.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might be doing a slow boil about something today. You're unhappy or angry but you feel you can't speak up. This is the worst, isn't it? (Could that be a deli pun?) Remember what your objective is. You want to be happy. Being angry at someone does not make you happy.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don't fight today about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt or insurance issues because everyone will lose. Some people are looking for a chance for a fight today. Better step aside. "A lot of men didn't and a lot of men died." Wasn't Tennessee Ernie Ford great singing "Sixteen Tons?"

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Avoid arguments with partners, close friends, bosses and parents today because they will easily arise. Remember, you can be right or you can be in the relationship, what's your choice? Our egos are so tender! Consider today an opportunity to practice patience.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because people will explode. (Yeah, it's that kinda day.) Instead, focus on schmoozing and having fun with others. Sports events or playful activities with kids will be a particular delight.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents might have squabbles with their kids today. Meanwhile, lovers' spats will be par for the course. Incidentally, fights among sports players are also very likely. Oy! Knowing this ahead of time, you can steer clear of unpleasant issues. Stay chill.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Domestic tension is likely today. This could be related to ex-partners who are back on the scene either in person or in conversation. It might be family related. Whatever the case, go gently. Everyone is happier when there is peace and harmony. That's a no-brainer.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Work-related arguments might take place today because people are impatient and annoyed. In fact, some people are looking for a fight. Tension about a pet might also arise. Do what you can to stay chill because you are excellent at dealing with groups and herding people with skilful means.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Parents might have difficulty dealing with kids today. Likewise, romantic partners might be bickering or fighting. It's a touchy day! But you always have a choice. You can choose to get involved in a nasty way or rise above the fray. Even in bad times, good things can happen.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Kevin Bacon (1958) shares your birthday today. You are talkative, curious and friendly. You always have something to say! Exciting news for your year ahead! You're entering a year of new beginnings! This means it's time to identify future goals to determine what you want for yourself in the next few years. Be pro-active and physically energetic about going after what you want. Just do it!
