General Daily Horoscopes for Monday, July 25, 2011

The determined Taurus Moon prompts us to stand firm in our convictions, but we may be growing tired of holding on to a particular point of view. It becomes nearly impossible to remain so stubborn once the Moon shifts into adaptable Gemini at 12:34 pm EDT. While this shift into the sign of curiosity increases our mental activity, helping us process more information, an erratic Mercury-Uranus aspect can shake things up and promote carelessness.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

At first it seems as if others are telling you to slow down today, but this familiar advice to an impulsive Aries isn’t about your speed. The emotional Moon’s entry into your interactive 3rd house encourages you to react instinctively, but your intuition can lead you astray now. Although you’re tempted to respond right away, it’s smarter to deliberate first. Waiting for a while before speaking your piece will make everyone happier and leave you without regret.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You don’t want to do anything until you’re ready to do it. If someone else attempts to change your timetable, you might overreact. Try softening your position today; it’s not helpful if you become so locked into your own schedule that you can’t respond rationally to an intriguing opportunity. Accepting an unexpected invitation can bring an exciting social interaction that improves your outlook on the day.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

The Moon’s entry into multifaceted Gemini can be quite confusing, especially as it raises your feelings closer to the surface. This normally wouldn’t be a problem, except it appears that you want contradictory things that might require you to proceed in two different directions. However, you might be more successful by postponing your decision until your mental clarity returns. If you can be comfortable with your ambivalence, then nothing needs to be changed for now.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Your anticipation of the future is likely more intense now than the events that actually follow. However, no matter how you look at it, you’re in for significant changes. Don’t panic; it may take time to put the big pieces in place. During your preparation process, it’s crucial to stay in the present moment and handle each situation as it arises, rather than worrying about what you might have to do tomorrow.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You are ready for a bit of fun now, even if you still have plenty of things to do. Keep in mind that it isn’t wise to avoid your responsibilities, for they will continue to multiply over the next few days. Grab a bit of enjoyment when you can and then get back to work. It’s all too easy to overextend your lunch break, so let the good times roll for a limited amount of time before returning for another round of serious business.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You have a lot to manage today as the Moon moves into your 10th House of Social Responsibility. You want to do things right, but you may get distracted by interesting conversations with unusual people. There’s nothing wrong with being curious as long as you’re willing to take the time to ask questions in a sensitive manner. However, don’t be overly concerned about what others think; just concentrate on your path to success.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It’s hard to know if you should be jazzed about what’s coming next or concerned that you recently missed your chance. You can sense that big changes are lurking just out past your perceptual limits. Nevertheless, you cannot wrap your mind around this elusive situation today. Although you may need to face your anxiety, remaining flexible is more important than following a specific agenda.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The Moon’s shift into your 8th House of Deep Sharing today gives you a chance to dig beneath the surface. However, the lightweight Gemini Moon could still leave you feeling slightly unsatisfied. Pushing too hard can set you up for disappointment now. While others may be able to match your passion, they won’t be able to sustain it. Be persistent; your patience will pay off when everyone else catches up with you in the days ahead.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You stand to learn something important about yourself when you actually take the time to listen. But you may grow bored of someone else’s stories today as the restless Gemini Moon rattles your 7th House of Relationships. It’s ironic that another person can get on your nerves, yet also offers such an important lesson. A quick escape is tempting now, but staying present in the dialogue can ultimately change your perspective for the better.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are easily distracted today and may be unable to stay focused on your work. It’s hard to keep your thinking in perspective because your mind is jumping all over the place. Don’t try to suppress your runaway thoughts by force. A smarter strategy is to grant yourself permission to ride a carousel of ideas and feelings. Think of this as a mini-getaway; your job responsibilities will be patiently waiting for your return.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You could be asked to offer your impression about someone you know. But the level of energy it takes to engage in a discussion — even in just sharing your ideas — might be more than you want. Your avoidance tactics won’t likely be very effective now, so you may as well stop trying to put off the inevitable. A little procrastination is harmless, but too much can lead to unnecessary trouble. Ultimately, it’s best to just say what’s on your mind.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your thoughts are running astray today and you can frustrate yourself by thinking that you have the power to rein them in. However, it’s possible to calm your nerves by diverting your attention. Watch a movie or just relax to your favorite music. And remember, these distractions are not long-term solutions; they simply shift your focus for a while. Be patient; the nervous energy will run its course and settle down over the next few days.
