With two of this summer’s electrifying eclipses arriving and expansive Jupiter ending a four-month retrograde, it’s all systems go. Or is it? We still have five planets in retrograde motion throughout the month which brings up unfinished business to finally finish. Messenger Mercury and dominant Mars have just begun their retrograde orbits along with organized Saturn, dreamy Neptune and transformative Pluto. It won’t be easy, but we have to try to maintain our equilibrium. My advice is to focus on what you can do and not on what you can’t. Plans and goals are not going to come to fruition or really get started until September when the planets return to direct orbit. Do your research and put in place whatever is necessary, so you are ready when the energy is released. I expect after keeping things at a simmer all summer, when we finally do get a chance to get going, things will happen quickly.
July starts with a collective sigh of relief. The drama and mayhem of last month is over. Not completely resolved, but waning for sure. We are now in the time of Cancer. The Crab is a cardinal water sign, ruled by the Moon. Cardinal signs initiate, water signs are interested in how things feel and the Moon collects and protects. The Cancer Sun is anything but detached; we're attached to the outcome, to how we feel, to our past, protecting our past and safeguarding our security. After all the craziness of June, the cosmos gives us a bit of a break and a soft landing.
