The kick off this week is that Mercury is slowing down to turn retrograde late in the evening Wednesday the 17th. Mercury turns retrograde in Cancer until July 12th. Because Mercury retrogrades in Cancer the focus is on home repairs, renovations, gardening and repairing some important family relationships. As Mercury turns retrograde it will conjunct the star Sirius. This star was associated with the goddess Isis. Her job was to burn the dead bodies to release the Soul, turning the mundane into the sacred. Thursday evening is a pleasant time to share with people who are able to go to deeper levels.
