Mercury, currently transiting your home and family sector, turns retrograde today, dear Aries. Until July 12th, you may need to fix some problems or deal with delays. However, it’s a time of great ideas and increased enjoyment of your domestic life. With the shift occurring now, you may be dealing with little things going wrong. Watch for misunderstandings, and aim to be especially clear if it’s important to get your message across. In the weeks ahead, getting your domestic or personal life can be in focus. You might revisit old projects or ideas, particularly related to family and domestic matters. New initiatives surrounding home and property might be better saved for another time, but reworking and refining works in progress can be fruitful. In a general sense, it’s a time for slowing down, reviewing, and collecting yourself. Circumstances may be such that you want to reconnect with family members and old places and situations that you hold dear. If home life is unsettled, this can be a time of rethinking living arrangements and conditions, finding new ways to reorder your life from the ground up. Positive action or support can come from behind the scenes or unexpected sources today with a Mars-Pluto transit. You might decide to take charge of a private, past, or health matter. Good energy is with you for tackling long-standing problems or important work.
Mercury turns retrograde today, dear Taurus, and will continue to travel your communications sector in retrograde motion until July 12th. This influence can stimulate the need to review how you’re communicating and getting around. Small repairs may be necessary with computers and transportation, for example. Watch for expressing yourself prematurely about a matter today, or for saying things that you don’t truly mean, as there is a tendency to be disconnected from your heart or true feelings this week, particularly with Venus, your ruler, still retrograde until the 25th. Decision-making is not as straightforward as it typically is, as you search within for answers and need more time to draw conclusions. It’s a strong time for reviewing projects and plans, however. Try to fix rather than dwell on flaws and problems, and this can be a rewarding period when revisiting past projects or studies can be satisfying. Exercise more care and attentiveness with new financial initiatives, emails and texts, and phone calls, as well as communicating with neighbors and siblings. Later today, someone might build your confidence or convince you to pursue your goals and desires.
Your ruler, Mercury, turns retrograde today, dear Gemini, and you’ll need to orient yourself with these changes before you can truly get a sense of your next step. It’s interesting to note that Venus is still retrograde in your sign (until the 25th), and your ruler is now retrograde–two indications that slowing down and reassessing things are in order. Review may be necessary before moving forward, particularly with finances. While there can be some communication breakdowns, you’re learning a lot about what you truly want and need. Today’s Mars-Pluto aspect suggests that someone might lend a hand, offering moral or financial support more readily. There can be a strengthening connection with a parent or boss, or you get yourself into an advantageous position to advance your interests. Mercury’s retrograde, until July 12th, is a signal from the cosmos to be a little more attentive when expressing yourself, signing important documents, or coming to critical agreements. Watch for fuzzy or wishful thinking, especially regarding practical matters. Look at things from a different perspective. Certain money-making ideas or ventures may go on hold. Things that have been written off, forgotten about, or set aside may now be of great use to you.
Mercury is spending quite some time visiting your sign this year, dear Cancer. While Mercury typically spends about three weeks in your sign each year, this time around, it’s from May 28th to August 4th. This extended stay is due to Mercury’s retrograde that begins today and runs until July 12th. During this shift, it’s better not to begin a brand new project, as it will likely get off to a slow start, or you might reconsider it later. In the weeks ahead, there can be more than the usual delays, misunderstandings, or lack of clarity on a significant matter, keeping you in limbo. You might take a little extra time making sure you’re clear in your communications. It’s a time of a little more introspection, and you will benefit greatly from this. Decision-making is not quite straightforward, encouraging you to look more deeply within for answers and take more time to think things through. While you’re not thrilled with interference today, you see the benefits and strategic value of working with instead of against someone today. You may be teaming up to achieve a goal with great success. Your instincts are excellent for putting your energy into activities that are likely to thrive and leave you feeling accomplished or empowered. Partnerships are a little more reinforcing now.
Today can be empowering in spots, but a little tricky in other areas, dear Leo, mainly due to possible misunderstandings. Mercury stations retrograde early today, and you could be dealing with old problems that resurface, delays, or lack of clear messages or instructions and explanations. Decision making can be complicated in the next while, as you play with different possibilities or with information missing. You might be playing a waiting game in a key area of your life. You could wrestle with whether to leave a situation behind. Watch for revealing something that you’d prefer to remain hidden. It’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work that is already underway, for journaling, and for backtracking over the past to find answers that you previously overlooked. Mercury will remain retrograde until July 12th. Research, reflect, and redo. A Mars-Pluto aspect today can point to fruitful work and efforts. You can turn a negative situation into a positive quite expertly now. In the weeks ahead, allow your mind to catch up with your heart before pushing ahead.
While you seem to be reorienting yourself early today and this takes energy, dear Virgo, you’re rebuilding as the day advances. You’ll enjoy experimenting with or entertaining new ideas and methods. The Moon heads into your partnership sector, and your need for others in general (or someone in particular) increases. There can be beneficial interchanges with a partner or good counsel that refreshes or relieves you. You might enjoy showing your appreciation for someone in your life. Rolling with the changes feels good. The key to success today seems to adapt to others’ needs, giving less attention to your own needs without ignoring them. An interpersonal problem may resolve now, or there is more openness to your interactions. The healing and compassionate sides of life are in stronger focus.
The helpful and nurturing side of your nature is called upon today, dear Libra. Feeling good about your home life is a desire or theme now, and if you’re feeling discontented, you’re especially motivated to make changes and improvements. The Moon aligns with expansive Jupiter in your home and family sector, encouraging special attention to these matters. You recognize the qualities and habits that support or delay your growth. You can be dreaming up long-term, master plans for a business or home, or you’re inclined to focus on making your current living conditions more joyful. You’re seeking a stronger sense of belonging or connectedness, and it’s a great time to get in touch with any needs and desires you’ve suppressed. Later today, the Moon enters your sector of joy, and then promptly aligns with Saturn there. You’re attracted to spending time doing productive things, finding it soothing and satisfying. You can have great success working on a creative project or refining a skill, studying, or adding structure or form to a project.
The Moon joins with generous Jupiter in your communications sector today, dear Scorpio, helping to boost your mood and sunny up your disposition. You’re in terrific shape for guiding, connecting, and learning and warmth can figure strongly in your interactions. Your ideas and kindness are a big draw. It’s important to watch for overloading your schedule with Jupiter involved since its optimism can lead to a sense that you can handle more than is reasonable. You have a fabulous ability to show others where there’s common ground. You might also be feeling very enthusiastic about a project, idea, or interest. Later today, the Moon heads into your home and family sector for a couple of days, meeting Saturn. You’re likely to focus on the practical side of your domestic world or personal life. This transit puts the spotlight on your needs for safety, security, and familiarity. Gather your strength rather than exhaust yourself or scatter your energies now for best results. Because you’re more sensitive than usual, seek positive or calming atmospheres.
You may want to immerse yourself in a project or a person today, dear Sagittarius, but practical responsibilities that need more immediate attention can challenge this. Still, this brief blockage may strengthen your resolve to work things through. Fortunately, a Sun-Chiron aspect active today helps balance things out. You are standing out from the crowd, particularly on creative and romantic levels. It’s a fine time to believe in your abilities and quietly go about your tasks. A partner or friend could point you in the direction of creative change and inspiration. Sharing activities, ideas, and entertainment with people you care about can be especially healing and could help cement a bond. People are attracted to your more unique qualities and talents. It’s a good time to recognize your vulnerabilities and work with them in positive ways. Avoid worrying about your abilities and simply do your best and enjoy yourself for best results now.
The more open and generous your approach today, dear Capricorn, the more rewards seem in the offing. A Sun-Jupiter trine helps you see the benefits of current projects and boosts your outlook, in general. There may be a romantic attraction that motivates you. You’re interested in growing and improving in your creative pursuits and connections, as staying the same doesn’t appeal. Your best self shines through in what you’re doing, and the day has every potential to be empowering. You’re likely to crave a change of pace or a break from the usual routine. You may be teaching in some capacity now, or you could be learning something new and different that’s inspiring. A new channel for expressing yourself might open up, and a surge of enthusiasm brightens your day and your vision of the future. Later today, a Mercury-Jupiter aspect comes into play, and routine tasks are unlikely to satisfy you. Your mind is wandering, or you’re dealing with a multitude of distractions. You may be seeking a higher purpose or something more satisfying related to work or routines and habits. While there can be some difficulties prioritizing, if you let go of this need, you’ll be in fine shape.
This can be a fine day for cooperating with others, dear Aquarius, and good feelings tend to be reciprocated. There is a strong sense of mutual harmony and a general boost in feelings of peace and security with and through others. Still, you’re seeking a little more meaning from your pursuits or relationships than usual today, and you’re happy to see signs of improvement and growth. It’s a good time for tapping into your intuition. Radiating an expectation of success with people you love does wonders for you now, but so can some introspection. Later today, a Mercury-Jupiter influence suggests you may have too much information to make the bigger decisions, or the news you receive now is missing key points or is misleading. You’ll feel less stress if you let go of the need to find definitive answers today. Enjoyable activities are most relieving.
Today’s good for dreaming up big ideas that help boost your confidence, dear Pisces, particularly on social levels and related to your interests or studies. It’s a fine time for gaining trust or developing and growing a relationship or even a project. The Sun in your communications sector harmonizes with Jupiter in your social sector, and conversations are generous, open, and meaningful, although somewhat meandering later today. Networking can bring rewards or opportunities. You are more invested in your relationships today, and it makes sense to approach your day with an open mind and heart. A Mercury-Jupiter aspect also active today suggests that you may have too much to think about to the point of stress, perhaps related to your personal/home life or friendships. Meaningful, spirited conversations are favored over small talk, which can fall short right now
