We start the week by saying “Welcome back Mercury Retrograde” we have no seen you in a few months. As I mentioned last week this retrograde will be double trouble as Mercury’s brother Uranus is also retrograde and both planets have to do with the mechanic’s of the mind, so misunderstandings and misinformation abound. Expect to have delays and frustrations, just make sure you don’t take any of it personally and be very careful driving not everyone will be paying attention or considerate. On the positive side you may have moments of enlightenment or brilliance. Don’t dismiss sudden thoughts as they may have solutions to your problems.
Mid week Mars comes into contact with both Uranus and Pluto, these three together usually cause chaos of one type or another. We may have some destructive weather patterns, earthquakes the 17th to the 19th will be the most difficult days. On the human plane we find people being aggressive and unreasonable, areas of the world that have war will find it intensifying, areas that have unrest will find more unrest and the political field in all parts of the world will be even more out of control than usual. If you have planets between 6-10 degree’s of the cardinal signs, Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn make sure you keep yourself centered. Stay away from any place or person who can be volatile or confrontational. You will also have to take a deep breath and count to ten before you react, you may say or do something you regret. You can also have a situation where interpersonal relationships can be damaged beyond repair, so unless you want to end something make sure you consider all sides of a situation.
The New Moon in Cancer happens on July 19th at 12:25 AM EST, I would strongly suggest using this moon to look deep at your emotional needs, as feelings of anger and frustration can mean something is lacking this is the time to find out what it is. This is a wonderful Moon for creating a secure foundation for yourself and your family. Plant the seed of healing all damaged relationships and forgive anyone who has hurt you emotionally, it will allow you to move forward.
