Monday: Mercury is newly direct, yet unmoving. Time may feel like it's standing still. How the retrograde time was spent and things that came up then continue to influence us. Remember there are still 4 retrograde planets and some will be retrograde all season. The Aries Moon squares two more Capricorn based planets today, urging reconsideration of agreements, plans and actions. It's not easy, but it's a good idea. Void Moon 11:54 am puts a wrap on that, and leads to Taurus Moon at 1:34 pm EDT. The rest of the day is aspect free. Maybe take a little break or get into a personal project such as gardening or cleaning and clearing. Taurus is a physical, hands on type of sign for the Moon to visit. Process emotions with physical work or exercise and time outside if possible. Wear Brown today.
Tuesday: An invisible thread connects Taurus Moon and Mercury in Cancer overnight. This may lead to sentimental feelings and reconnections. It's very personal, intimate, and tender. Later the Moon meets Uranus which can rattle or stir us internally or with external events. Changes of heart are one possible effect, and changes of course are another. These shifts may come unexpectedly and be necessary. Uranus spends time in Taurus for years ahead, so this is a monthly occurrence and can feel familiar or cyclical. Taurus rules the throat, so announcements may be made and conversations may contain surprises. Do you need to clear the air with someone or get something out in the open? Can you do so with forethought so it doesn't come out the wrong or unintended way? The Sun is directly across from Jupiter, leading us to consider how opportunities and growth may impact home and family relationships. The answer does not have to come today. Wear Blue.
Wednesday: Taurus Moon engages with Neptune, Jupiter, the Sun, Pluto and Saturn, in that order throughout the day and night. Taurus Moon means playing for keeps. There's a lot of retrograde in the zodiac right now, so playing for keeps may mean renewing old agreements, from marriage to employer/employee relationships to other partnerships, and even your relationship with your home. Taurus is earth, so consider property, finances, and your commitments as related to stability and foundation. Emotions are implicated too, by Cancer Sun and Neptune in Pisces, water signs. Family connections, agreements, and interactions are important today. Void Moon 11:21 pm EDT to 1:19 am EDT.
Thursday: Gemini Moon time starts at 1:19 am EDT. Sometimes scattered, often social, and connected to communication of all kinds, the Gemini Moon only has one aspect today, with Mars in Aries. It's highly activating for new ideas, and it could also create debate and arguments if one comes on too strong or too opinionated. Make the most of this Moon by writing, study, business meetings, or through interactions with people, maybe ones you've just met. Today's color is Yellow.
Friday: Gemini Moon and Venus meet at 2:40 am EDT. Lovers and friends will want to connect, talk, sort things out, and share feelings and thoughts. Intellectual connections are most favored, meaning strong interests and passions will connect us. Venus in Gemini implies lots of talking and writing within a relationship. Some will receive letters or cards with heartfelt messages. The Moon and Neptune are square in mutable signs, so mixed messages are also possible. Trust intuition over other people's words and promises. Void Moon starts at 5:14 pm EDT. Tonight is not very reliable and people may forget commitments and plans. Set up reminders. Today's color is Pink.
Saturday: Cancer Moon time starts at 10:24 am EDT. Before that, sleep late, lay low, do easy and routine things or ask forgiveness/apologize as it might be more well received under void Moon. Cancer Moon will wane through this weekend culminating in New Moon in Cancer (again!) on Monday. Normally we have one New Moon in a sign during a season. However, the solar eclipse was at 0 degree of Cancer a month ago and now we will have a New Moon in a final degree of this sign. With all the retrograde this feels like second or renewed chances. Things we thought were for sure may change next week. Try to keep flexibility in all plans. It may be best not to put money down on something or sign a lease quite yet, if it can wait. The picture and considerations are shifting. Home, family, emotions, the past, are all part of this picture for a second Cancer New Moon. Now is for rethinking and preparations as well as housecleaning. Wear Light Blue.
Note: New Moon at 28 degrees of Cancer Monday at 1:33 pm EDT.
Wishing you a peaceful July!
