In this daily horoscope for July 9, 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.
Today brings us a new moon in tenderhearted Cancer (9:17 p.m. ET), which inspires us to undergo an emotional reset. Under this new moon, we’re also encouraged to put our well-being first. For some of us, this may mean setting healthier boundaries within our relationships or creating a better work-life balance. For others, this could mean focusing more on our physical and mental wellness and adopting healthier habits.
With the moon in Cancer facing off with wounded Chiron in Aries by late morning, we could be starting out the day feeling cranky. As such, it might be a good time to lay low and avoid getting pulled into unnecessary drama. By the afternoon, the moon teams up with independent Uranus in Taurus, which encourages us to spend some much-meeded time alone or with the right group of people with whom we share a bond.
