For All Signs: Mercury, planet of communication and travel, turns direct on the 9th. Projects and decisions which have been delayed or set aside can now be resolved, and the routine business world will resume its usual hectic pace. Hopefully, the past three-and-a-half-week period of the retrograde will have done its job, that of encouraging reflection and re-evaluation of previously made plans. Any flaws or problems in previously existing ideas will have been discovered, detours made or road repairs completed, and life traffic returns to normal.
Cancer the Crab: (June 21 -- July 21)
Be sure to read the lead paragraph, Moon Children. Mercury has been retrograding in your sign for the last month. Now that it is turning direct, you will be picking up steam and moving faster. Assuming you had patience with yourself, the respite was probably a pleasure.
Aries: This is a good period to integrate your self assertion with your need for relationship(s). Be proactive about mending and repairing any damage that might have occurred thus far this year. Activities involving the law, travel, publishing or education are somewhat stressful and may be temporarily impeded.
Taurus: The important people in your life are in your corner right now. This is a good time to have one or more talks of considerable depth about your sense of the relationship and where it is going in the future. Activities involving family or home, hearth and gardening can be fulfilling at this time.
Gemini: Your ruling planet is Mercury, which turns direct this week (see lead paragraph). There may be a flurry of plan changes and schedule shifts, which is common as Mercury redirects itself. You are probably also redirecting your energies and getting back into plans made a long time ago.
Leo: This time strongly favors relationship, creativity and fun. Yes, there are important things on your mind, but you are beginning to find solutions now. This week give yourself time to play with children, the arts or enjoy romance. Take your significant other off on a new adventure!
Virgo: Your planetary ruler Mercury is turning direct this week. After a mild burst of activity while your calendar is rearranged, you will be back into forward motion after a month more or less on hold. Friends and associates who have been gone will be returning. Use July and August for a rest. You are preparing for a big charge forward by September.
Libra: Energies of this week are positive for most of your relationships. Romance may have a particular excitement about it now. Communications are also very strong. Your ability to create creative word pictures has never been better. Anything related to language is given a "go" signal.
Scorpio: This is a particularly favorable period to have intimate discussions with your significant other. It is a good time to work out problem issues and create win-win solutions from previous conflicts. It may feel rewarding simply to share your deep thoughts and feelings about the relationship with each other.
Sagittarius: Your daily life planning is somehow hampered by delays or detours right now. However, there are go signals in the territories of education, the law, travel and dealing with the Internet or those from a distance. Use care in driving or dealing with machinery. Your reflexes are a bit off at this time.
Capricorn: There are no new aspects involving your sign this week, so be at peace, Capricorn. You are standing on a figurative bridge. One foot is closing a cycle of the last two-and-a-half years. Meanwhile, you have an entirely new project to develop ahead. This week is quiet and allows you to catch up to yourself and breathe.
Aquarius: Your everyday routine flows smoothly this week, with possibly a favorable surprise or two offered by your partner or a coworker. Give attention to your physical body, particularly early in the week. It may be asking for extra sleep or rest.
Pisces: Favorable surprises and positive feedback are likely to come your way through your children, your interest in the arts, your job, and/or your lover. You have a sparkle about you during this period, and others are inexorably drawn to be with you. Spread your wings and try something new in the creative arena.
