Your daily love horoscope for July 18, 2023

From calm, composed Cancer, the Moon starts waxing in vibrant, confident Leo today. We use the lessons we learned during the Cancer Moon and execute them with confidence today. We’re sure we can take on any challenges with a brave heart and will always rise like a phoenix from the ashes in the end. We would want to show our loved ones that we love them and would say I love you generously. Grand gestures are how we show our love today, and we will be creative and imaginative as we show our love to the people in our lives.

To learn how your sign could use this warm Leo energy to show love today, read more below.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, your hopeless romantic side takes the helm today as the Moon transits toward Leo. It’s a new beginning, and you’re using this opportunity to start fresh, to tell your loved ones how much you love them. We only have so much time, after all; why not use it to love people as much as we can? You will do this in a multitude of ways, and as the dramatic sign that you are, you like using grand gestures to show your love. You’ll fill a room with rose petals and drink champagne on quiet, romantic nights with your partner, and this romantic side will remind them that you love and value them more than anything. 


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, you’ve found people who make you feel like you belong; who make you feel safe; and who makes you feel loved and treasured, above all. But you’re always bracing for the impact, because part of you believes nothing good can last—so you show them you love them while you still have time. You greet them a good morning when the day begins and tell them good night as the day ends. You think about them day and night, and you let them know. Don’t hold back, Taurus, but don’t let yourself believe these good things can never last, because you deserve these good things! There are a million possibilities, so who knows? Maybe this thing really is for good, if you let yourself believe.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’re always honest, Gemini, and today you’re using the Leo Moon’s energy to be compassionately honest with the people you love. You don’t hesitate to tell them when they’re doing something wrong or self-sabotaging, because only a fool would let their friends walk to the edge of the cliff and wait for them to be on the verge of falling before they pull them back. This is your way of showing love—and you won’t let this new beginning mean a beginning of hurt and pain for your loved ones, so you will talk some sense into them when they need it, even if they don’t want it.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You have a habit of putting the needs of others above your own, Cancer, and the Leo Moon urges you to unlearn this habit. Whether you like it or not, it’s unhealthy. Even if it’s the people you love, it will always be wrong to put your needs second in any relationship—because what will be left of you when they leave? You need to learn how much you’re worth, Cancer. Don’t let your self-esteem rely on your ability to help others; instead, look at the way you love others and apply it to yourself—it’s the best way to learn self-love and compassion.


Leo (July 23 – August 22)

The Moon visits your very own first house of the self, Leo, and this makes you even more confident than you already are. You trust your feelings, counting on your intuition to always guide you to the right decision. You use this in your relationships to treat your loved ones well, and to leave when you’re mistreated. There’s no question that you know what you’re worth, so if you’re worried you might be mistreated like you were in the past, count on your self-worth—it will make sure that you will leave when it’s time.


Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You like hiding your feelings, Virgo, and you think it’s for the best. You don’t want to be a burden to others, so you choose to carry it all on your own. The question is: isn’t it exhausting? If you’re tired, know that your loved ones have got your back. Rely on them when you need to. The Cancer New Moon taught you about vulnerability—now the Leo Moon urges you to be confident in your loved ones’ ability to be there for you when you need them.


Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your friends are your lifeline, Libra, and it scares the hell out of you. What do you do when you lose them? You love them with your whole heart, and you fear you will be left with nothing if they choose to leave. You need to learn that there’s always a risk, Libra—that’s just how life is. Perhaps you need to stop fixating on the risk and consider the good possibilities instead. Instead of the negative what if’s, ask yourself: what if these friendships last a lifetime? What if their love for me helps me find the romantic love I need in the future? It’s only a mere possibility, yes, but even the worst possible scenario is also just a possibility—why not choose to have confidence in the better ones?


Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Scorpio, you know how to get people’s attention, and you’re claiming it today. You think highly of yourself, and this makes people respect you. You’re using this knowledge to get what you want—and your overflowing confidence makes you so attractive. People will be drawn to your mysteriously magnetic energy, and this high sense of self-worth makes your loved ones treasure you so much more. Make sure not to rely solely on your charm for your self-esteem, Scorpio. It is attractive, for sure, but remember that there are other meaningful things in life that you should rely on. 


Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) 

Life is short, Sagittarius, and this means you have no time for self-doubt. Exploring new places, meeting new people, and learning new cultures is truly scary, but you’re choosing to leap into the unknown anyway. No one knows what happens in the future or what exists in the unknown, and instead of fearing it, you take comfort in it. So you love without inhibitions, you say I love you generously, and you never hesitate to show love when you can, trusting in your desire to live a life without regrets.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) 

Intimacy has always been difficult for you, Capricorn—you want to show love, but you don’t want to be vulnerable. You might even be too proud to tell someone you love them because you believe feelings make you weak. You need to learn that having feelings isn’t a weakness, Capricorn; it’s human, and showing them isn’t a weakness; it’s a strength. So tell your loved ones how much you love them. Shower them with affection. It’s awkward, but is the discomfort worth the regret of not showing enough love while there is still time?


Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, relationships can be complicated, but they’re what make life meaningful. This fact makes you romanticize the simple things in your relationships—you admire how much you and your friends take care of each other and how you’re always there for each other when you need it. But the Leo Moon also has a tendency to be selfish. You want to reap all the benefits without putting in the effort. Remember that relationships are a two-way street, Aquarius. Love doesn’t just mean receiving, it also means giving.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20) 

Pisces, life’s been difficult lately, and you’re finding it hard to stay afloat. But today, the Leo Moon gives you a little more energy to get out of bed and do what you need to keep yourself sane. It’s a good day to spend time with friends, with your significant other, or with your family. Do what you need to do to cope, Pisces. As long as it’s not self-sabotaging or hurtful, it will always be valid.
