Communications and your self-identity are the focus this week, as Mercury enters its storm to go retrograde in July. A Venus-Neptune square on Monday can signal some uncomfortable moments with love, and anxiety about your self-esteem. If you feel as if no one likes you, or you’ve succumbed to addictive behavior, you could be way off base with your thoughts. Luckily this conflict or confusion won’t hang around too long, and is just a glitch on the screen. Be aware, slow down, and relax daytime Monday. You are getting ready for an active mid-week as the Moon moves into action sign Aries.
The always restless Mercury changes signs on Wednesday evening and moves into Leo. It asks you to review where your heart is engaged in what you do, and what adjustments will be needed to spark your fun-loving and passionate side. You may feel as if you’re going nowhere fast. The upcoming retrograde in July makes sure that communications will be complicated this summer because Mercury spends it time dancing between fiery Leo and emotionally defensive Cancer.
Do something out of the ordinary on Thursday as eclectic Uranus aligns with the life-giving Sun, and wants to do anything but humdrum activities. The Moon moves into Gemini Saturday afternoon and Sunday, which is a great time for running errands and talking to a lot of people.
There are two eclipses in July. A solar eclipse on July 2nd in Cancer has you looking at home and family needs and issues. The lunar eclipse in Capricorn and Cancer on July 16th has you looking at responsibilities and nurturing needs.
While Mercury is traveling through the sign of royalty, Leo, for the next three weeks, beginning on July 7th, you might choose words and language that is overly dramatic and try to override any opinion that’s not your own. Don’t be self-centered, remember to be humble, and don’t lock up your heart.
