Happy Sunday everyone! Today we wave goodbye to June and hello to July. July looks like it will be a month of high emotions. We have Mercury retrograde From July 7th to the 31st, and two Eclipses taking place this month. Solar eclipses represent new beginnings that start on a deeper level. They bring our inner desires to the surface. Our first Solar Eclipse takes place in Cancer, which means we will be looking for emotional support and security. Our 2nd Eclipse is a Capricorn Lunar Eclipse, where the focus is on taking a look at our responsibilities and boundaries, especially those that relate to our emotions. Let’s see what this week has in store for us!


Today we have Mars moving into heart-opening Leo, which means now its time to make sure our heart is connected to our actions. This energy will last until mid-August, so make sure to leave room for fun and creativity too. The Moon will go Void of Course late Monday evening before slipping into Cancer in the wee hours of the morning. This is also our Solar Eclipse. What we will want to watch for are world events in areas that lie under the Moon’s path, so just east of New Zealand to South America’s Pacific side. A Solar Eclipse in Cancer tends to bring deep emotions to the surface, as well as new beginnings. What we want to look at is where we are nurturing and where we need more nurturing for ourselves.


Today we have Venus moving into Cancer, a gentle combo for beautifying our homes and ourselves that will be with us until the 27th. It also allows us to deal with emotional issues in a softer way. Our relationship focus shifts to family, loved ones, and support groups. We tend to find security in familiar places during Venus’s visit in this watery sign. The Moon will go Void of Course mid-afternoon and remain there until Thursday morning when it moves into Leo for the 4th of July. Leo is a sign that likes to have fun, making it a great energy for celebrating the 4th. The Moon will then go Void of Course Friday morning and remain there until the weekend.


Our Saturday morning starts off with the Moon moving into practical Virgo, making it a good weekend for getting things organized or cleaned up. When the Moon is in Virgo we instinctually gravitate towards practical activities. In an urge to set things right, we might easily find ourselves re-organizing and rethinking plans. Emotional satisfaction comes from solving problems, making order out of confusion, and helping others. This makes it a good time for doing routine work that requires precision, concentration on detail and hard work.

Sunday is the day that Mercury begins its Retrograde cycle for the next 3 weeks. For nearly a week before and a week after today, Mercury will be moving at a snail’s pace or pausing entirely. At this time we can experience confusion, intensity, frustration, lots of miscommunication or we may feel we are getting bogged down with any progress we were making. It’s not all bad though! This is a great time for doing research, fact-finding, investigative work and anything else necessary to prepare us for major decisions, which we can put into play after this retrograde cycle. So, try to stay flexible, give yourself a lot of time when setting up your schedule for any unexpected changes and, most of all, flow with it with. Do things that tap into your creative, intuitive and non-rational mind until Mercury turns direct. Later in the afternoon, the Moon will go Void of Course until Monday.
