Your July 3 Weekly Horoscope Wants You to Take a Freaking Load Off
We've officially crossed the halfway point of the year, and the sun's journey through sentimental Cancer will continue to bring us inward. Similarly, your July 3 weekly horoscope is presenting you with an opportunity to tap into your intuition and prioritize your comforts.
This week's astrological transits are nourishing and replenishing, especially compared to the lingering effects of last weekend's intense Mars-Pluto square. After all, there's no taming the dynamism and fiery inspiration stemming from red-hot Mars and transformative Pluto, as the latter continues to bring focus to the areas of our lives where we feel our power being taken away from us. It likely brought light to everything from toxic power plays to repressed wounds surrounding the ego. Having said that, what might've felt overwhelming or triggering to some could potentially be a blessing in disguise. This is about transmuting all of these shadowy energies into strength and passion.
Don't rush into making any decisions, and trust the process. Mars will be making its debut in Taurus on July 5, followed by Mercury joining the sun in Cancer moments after. This will certainly change the dynamic, namely from masculine (action and extroversion) to feminine (intuition and introversion), which helps soothe some of the tension we've experienced in the weeks prior.
If you're wondering what this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for July 3 through July 9, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign. For a look at the whole month, check out your July monthly horoscope, and for a look at your year overall, read your 2022 horoscope.
Aries (March 21-April 19) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Sort out your priorities, Aries. After quite the tumultuous Mars-Pluto square, the moon's shift into methodical Virgo on July 3 will bring grounding to your sixth house of health and daily rituals. This is an excellent time to spruce up your living space or head to Pilates for a sweat sesh. Are you in the mood to celebrate the Fourth of July? If so, chances are you're hosting for friends and family. After all, the sun will be energizing your domestic fourth house of home, all while harmonizing with the meticulous moon in Virgo. Savvy Mercury joins the sun in sentimental Cancer the following day, which, in turn, brings focus to themes surrounding home and family. If you were looking at things from a logical standpoint, Mercury in Cancer will bring you closer to your heart space. Your intuition will also be at an all-time high.
That same day, after its sizzling journey through your cardinal fires, Mars will make its debut in Taurus, bringing energy, passion, and momentum to your stability-seeking second house of value systems. Mercury and Mars will harmonize with one another, which ultimately blends themes surrounding your sensual pleasures and home sweet home. On July 6, the first quarter moon in Libra will activate your seventh house of agreements, partnerships, and alliances. This could, in turn, trigger an important conversation with a significant other. The moon will trine harmony-seeking Venus the following day, adding a layer of sweetness and amiability to your exchanges.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Surround yourself with energies that are high-vibing and welcoming, Taurus. The week of July 3 kicks off with the moon entering Virgo in your fifth house of romance, passion projects, and self-expression — which is always a plus, especially when it comes to polishing a unique talent or skill. Catching the Fourth of July fireworks? This would be an excellent time to gather with your best pals and immediate family, as the sun (in your third house of inner circles) will harmonize with the moon (in your fifth house of celebratory affairs), so go on and indulge in your summer fun. Mercury will be joining the sun in Cancer the following day, bringing clarity and movement to your third house of communication. You're more likely to express your emotions at this time, so no need to hold back from doing so.
It gets better. If you've been feeling a lack of energy, passion, or inspiration, audacious Mars (planet of energy, carnality, and war) returns to your sign on July 5, and for the first time in two years. This will not only supercharge you with strength and bold enthusiasm, but also instill you with the courage to move forward and take the necessary risks. The moon will also reach its first quarter phase in Libra and your responsible sixth house of daily rituals and health routines the following day, which is ideal for themes surrounding your fitness routine and general productivity. Single, crushing, or already romantically involved, the moon's shift in smoldering Scorpio on July 8 will light up your relationship sector and bring awareness to the mental, physical, and spiritual connection you share with a significant other.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Take that personal day, because you deserve it. Besides, the moon enters methodical Virgo on July 3, which, in turn, brings emotional awareness and intuitive clarity to your fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings. Whether it's a desire to declutter your living space or perhaps remodel your humble abode, this is an excellent moon transit for strategy, grounding, and purification. You may or may not be in the mood for this year's Fourth of July festivities, and it's probably thanks to the moon's square to Venus in your sign. You are in your right to disconnect, so silence those buzzing notifications and take some time to chill. On July 5, your curious planetary ruler, Mercury, will make its debut in sentimental Cancer and your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems. Reflect on your investments, and prioritize your emotional well-being.
The energy picks up on July 6 when the first quarter moon in Libra touches down on your flamboyant fifth house of love, passion, pleasure, and self-expression, as it will bring momentum and forward movement to themes surrounding your romantic interests and passion projects. The moon will also sit in opposition to Jupiter, creating friction between your heart's desires vs. the options stemming from your friends, peers, and extended community. Then, look out, world. The moon will link up with harmony-seeking Venus in your sign on July 7, adding a layer of charm and coquettishness to everything from your encounters in love to your creative expression. Conversations are flowing, you're looking the part, and your admirers find you as attractive as ever.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Basking in the blessings of your season? The week of July 3 begins on a tedious note as the moon will enter responsible Virgo and your curious third house of communication and immediate surroundings. This area of your chart epitomizes the meaning of miscellanies, so grab your planner and write down all of your to-dos. Headed out for the Fourth of July? The sun will be in harmony with the moon, making you shine as bright as ever in your favorite local spots. The moon's square to Venus, however, could be the reason you're hesitant to leave your cozy crab shell. On July 5, Mercury returns to your sign, handing you the celestial microphone for the next couple of weeks. In addition to your intuition skyrocketing, your words will also carry more weight at this time.
Mars will also enter sensually driven Taurus and your socially driven 11th house of community, friendship, and individual freedom, which is equally as energizing as it is inspiring for socializing, networking, and growing your online platform. On the dark side, you may experience some stubborn encounters in person or online — do yourself a favor, and pay no mind to the trolls. On July 6, the first quarter moon in Libra will bring strength and forward movement to your fourth house of home, family, and personal affairs. Reconnecting with family is likely during this time, and the same goes for those of you rekindling your connection with a close relative. The moon slips into smoldering Scorpio on July 8, which, in turn, ignites your fifth house of love, passion projects, and self-expression. The more taboo, the better.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
It's time to clean the house, literally and figuratively. For instance, with the moon entering minimalistic Virgo and your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems, you're being called to take a step back and reassess everything from your money-making abilities to your spending habits. Although, if you're not in the mood for anything that revolves around your budget, the moon's square to Venus on July 4 — in your 11th house of community affairs and individual freedom — could bring emphasis to connections and friendships you may have recently outgrown. So, if you're not in the mood for Fourth of July fireworks, make it a day for self-love. On July 5, Mercury will join the sun (your celestial ruler) in Cancer in your 12th house of closure and dreams, bringing you into deep introspection.
Planning your next vacation? This is an excellent time to lay low. Although contrary to your sleepy 12th-house vibes, Mars's shift into persistent Taurus and your public 10th house of career, legacy, and reputation in the world couldn't be more opposite, as you will likely be confronted with a series of professional opportunities at this time. The next day, during the first quarter moon in Libra (hanging out in your curious third house of communication) the energies will continue to pick up, as evidenced by your buzzing smartphone. To say you're making big money moves would be an understatement. Go get 'em!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Your inner voice is speaking to you loud and clear, Virgo, so pay attention. The week of July 3 kicks off with the moon in your sign, highlighting the foundation of your day-to-day routine and your innermost feelings. So if you're not feeling the idea of a Fourth of July gathering with friends, lay low and enjoy your alone time. Granted, you will definitely be missed if you decide to bail, as the sun — in your 11th house of community affairs and friendship groups — will be in harmony with the moon in your sign. That means that in addition to being a valued and trustworthy friend, things just aren't the same when you're not around.
Speaking of which, your planetary ruler, Mercury, will join the sun in Cancer on July 5, which, in turn, brings intellectual focus to the emotional connections you share with those in your extended network as well as distant relatives you haven't connected with in a while. Go-getter Mars will also debut in Taurus and your exotic ninth house of adventure, wisdom, and worldly pursuits that same day, so if you're suddenly feeling the carpe-diem vibes, it's not a coincidence. On July 6, there will be a first quarter moon in Libra, lighting up your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and value systems, which means emotional themes surrounding your money-making abilities and spending habits will likely be top of mind at this time. Tensions die down a bit the following day, as the moon harmonizes with Venus in your 10th house of career, reputation, and sense of authority. Pitch that great idea, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there. The stars are aligning in your favor today, especially when it pertains to professional matters.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
If you've been feeling the need to retreat and keep to yourself, don't hesitate to do so, Libra. This is especially true when considering the moon's shift into health-conscious Virgo and your 12th house of closure, healing, and unconscious patterns. You're taking a well-deserved mental health day or better yet, a long-overdue vacay somewhere quiet and tropical. Just in time for the Fourth of July festivities, the sun will harmonize with the moon in your inhibited 12th house while energizing your 10th house of career, public persona, and sense of authority. Put on your out-of-office away message and wave goodbye to your colleagues as you sail off into the sunset. Keep in mind, the moon will square off with your celestial ruler, Venus, suggesting the possibility of opting for a staycation instead. Do what feels right for you.
On July 5, Mercury will slip into sentimental Cancer, joining the sun in your 10th house of authority, which means that in addition to following your intuition, you're also more likely to lean on a female mentor or authority figure for support during this time. Mars (celestial ruler of your seventh house of significant others) will also debut in Taurus — in your intimate eighth house of shared resources — bringing energy and momentum to everything from your romantic relationships to your energetic exchanges. Passions will be running high, and the first quarter moon in your sign on July 6 will only intensify the overall dynamic. The good news is the moon will harmonize with luscious Venus on July 7, which is always a plus for your romantic connections and social status.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
Reconnect with your best pals or lend a hand to your close colleagues, Scorpio. The week of July 3 will begin on a productive note as the moon touches down in your socially driven 11th house of community affairs and individual freedom. Whether it's in-person or via social media, this is an excellent time for mingling, networking, and paying it forward to a greater cause. If you're in the same mood the following day, chances are the Fourth of July festivities will be in full effect, as the sun — in your ninth house of adventure — will harmonize with the moon in your friendship sector. Summer road trip? This may or may not coincide with a significant other's plans, as the moon will also square off with Venus via your intimate eighth house. Feel out the vibes, and go with the flow.
On July 5, Mercury will join the sun in Cancer — in your ninth house of expansion, education, and belief systems — which, in turn, brings intellectual focus to matters surrounding your ancestral lineage and maternal traditions. Some of you may opt to visit a close friend somewhere abroad or plan a reunion with an ex-classmate you stay in touch with. Your traditional ruler, Mars, will also be making its debut in sensually driven Taurus and your committed seventh house of agreements, compromise, and significant others. Single, crushing, or already taken, this will spice things up, and in more ways than one. Speaking of, the moon will also harmonize with Venus on July 7 before it wraps up in Libra and your 12th house of secrets. Keeping your love locked down? The moon will enter your sign the following day, so probably not for long.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
You're making boss moves, and the whole world is watching, Sag. The moon enters methodical Virgo on July 3, which, in turn, brings emotional awareness and intuitive clarity to your traditional 10th house of career, legacy, and reputation in the world. Whether it's a new project you have in the works or an opportunity to work alongside a mentor, chances are you're hard at work, crossing your t's and dotting your i's. Keep in mind, the moon will square off with Venus in your relationship sector on July 4, which means you're likely being called to discern between matters of business vs. pleasure. On the other hand, some of you may opt for working overtime for some extra cash instead of spending time with friends and family for the Fourth of July.
On July 5, Mercury (celestial ruler of your relationship sector) will join the sun in Cancer and your intimate eighth house of shared resources. If conversations have been feeling short and sweet, this will certainly intensify the dynamic of your gatherings. After all, this is one of the most mysterious houses in your birth chart. Pay attention to your intuitive downloads, and feel free to read between the lines. The first quarter moon in Libra on July 6 will ignite your 11th house of community affairs while making a direct opposition to your planetary ruler, Jupiter. What's fair is fair, but does this mean neglecting your heart's desires in the process? On July 7, the moon will link up with flirty Venus, creating a sweet synergy in your social sector as well as your one-on-one relationships.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
You learn something new every day, Capricorn. With the moon slipping into Virgo and your expansive ninth house of adventure on July 3, you're more likely to overanalyze as opposed to looking at the bigger picture of a particular situation. Fortunately, the sun will harmonize with the moon the following day while lighting up your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. On the dark side, however, the moon's square to Venus in your responsible sixth house of due diligence could create tension or confusion around the logistics of a particular situation. Maybe your Fourth of July plans with a significant other's family just so happens to coincide with an important work function.
The next day, Mercury will join the sun in Cancer, which, in turn, brings clarity and momentum to your seventh house of agreements, compromise, and significant others, followed by Mars's fiery debut in Taurus for the first time in over a year. If you're looking for an S.O., stay tuned: Mercury's sextile to Mars on July 5 is just the beginning. This seductive synergy is equally as familiar as it is enticing, so follow your intuition. On July 8, the moon will slip into smoldering Scorpio, bringing emotional awareness and intuitive clarity to your 11th house of community affairs and sense of belonging in the world. Some of you may hear news about a friend or colleague, while others of you take a closer look at the dynamic of your clique. The week comes to a close with Mercury at odds with Jupiter in your fourth house of home, family, and innermost feelings — so be sure to set boundaries if necessary, especially when it comes to themes of me vs. we.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
The cosmos is putting a magnifying glass on the foundation of your one-on-one connections, both personally and professionally speaking, Aquarius. For instance, the week of July 3 begins with the moon in Virgo, bringing emphasis, strategy, and grounding to your intimate eighth house of mergers and shared resources. Is there an equal give and take in your relationship dynamic? Are you being compensated properly? You could be reluctant to partake in any of the Fourth of July festivities this year, especially since the moon will be at odds with Venus via your fifth house of fun, celebration, and self-expression. Although, given that the sun will harmonize with the moon, chances are most of you will opt for a day of adulting; productivity is your strong suit today.
On July 5, Mercury will join the sun in Cancer, energizing your sixth house of health, due diligence, and acts of service. Changing up your go-to meals? Cancer has everything to do with nourishment, and with Mercury and the sun energizing your sixth house of health routines, chances are some of you may research new recipes and/or workout options you can complete via the comfort of your own home. The first quarter moon in Libra on July 6 could bring momentum to your ninth house of expansion, and with its ruler, Venus, dazzling your fifth house of recreational activities, many of you may decide to take an impromptu vacation. With the moon trining Venus the following day, it really doesn't get more charming than this.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Weekly Horoscope For July 3, 2022
When you know, you know, so there's no need to overanalyze what your intuition is telling you, Pisces. This is especially true when considering the moon (celestial ruler of your fifth house of love, romance, and self-expression) entering Virgo on July 3, bringing emotional emphasis and general focus to your one-on-one connections and contractual agreements. On July 4, the moon will also face off with Venus in your fourth house of home, family matters, and innermost feelings, which could create friction between an agreement you made with someone vs. what's going on in the home front. Truth be told, this could be something as silly as your WiFi connection not working in time for your Zoom call with a friend.
On July 5, Mercury will join the sun in Cancer, bringing movement and clarity to your fifth house of romance, creativity, and authenticity. Whether it's a romantic interest who makes you swoon or a unique talent you're learning how to cultivate, the key is to follow your heart. That same day, Mars will enter sensually driven Taurus and your curious third house of communication. Mars will be making an exact sextile to Mercury, too, which is a pretty positive aspect for relaying an important message or getting the ball rolling with a creative project. The same goes for your love life, so this is your official cue to take action. On July 8, the moon will slip into Scorpio and your ninth house of expansion, highlighting emotional themes surrounding your maternal lineage or the shadow side of your belief systems. Could it be time to step outside of your comfort zone?
