The Summer waxes full and time slows down in these long days as Mercury, symbolic ruler movement, speech, and our thinking process, prepares to turn retrograde from July 7-30. The stars encourage new business this August and September, but right now they ask us to stop, think, tell stories, and nurture our healthy extended family relationships. Get right with ourselves and with one another.
Mental Mercury is now in extroverted Leo, which can help us tell wonderful stories at a family gathering and turn a lively evening at the café into performance art. But we may see hyperbole in the headlines, and, as the week progresses have a harder and harder time getting out of our own mindset and truly being able to empathize with another, even when we’re feeling generous.
Mercury appears to slow down and almost squares erratic Uranus before it turns retrograde on July 7. Already our thinking may be a little strange and our life complicated by odd technical glitches and minor mistakes. As the week progresses, we may make spontaneous, last-minute decisions of questionable judgment. But maybe we do need that puppy or some extra time off. . . .
On Tuesday a new Moon a solar eclipse at 10° Cancer is only visible in the southern hemisphere but affects us all. This eclipse in deep-feeling and protective Cancer asks us to ponder the concept of true security and safety versus the illusion of temporary defenses, both in our emotional life and in our politics. It punctuates an emotional phase, and help us acknowledge changes within our family structures, as it brings to the end one cycle and starts a new one. . . .
