Wednesday, June 26th: Mercury turns retrograde this morning at 9:04 a.m. EDT until July 20th - he won't leave his shadow (the degree in which he retrograded) until August 4th. Which means, we are in a time of being extra diligent in our communication process - double checking, cc'ing, asking if we heard things correctly and qualifying the communication process in a way that we typically take for granted. Now, this IS a time to turn a bit inward and check in. How do you "feel" on various matters and with the people who populate your world? Take your time knowing that the Universe creates these gestation phases for a reason.
The Moon shows her support by also going VOID in detached and humanitarian minded Aquarius at 9:09 a.m. EDT until the following day THURSDAY at 4:33 a.m. EDT when she ingresses emotional Pisces. Keep your expectations at a minimum as far as results, decisions and next steps. Go with the flow and enjoy the stillness.
The Sun in Cancer makes a Grand Trine to both Saturn and Neptune bringing a stable energy to our conscious awareness, goals, commitments, creativity, dreams and escapism.
Venus sextiles Eros combining values with passion as Eros moves into square with Nessus. Where are our pleasures/passions still steeped in shadows of the past (imprints involving the wrong use of energy sexually and otherwise).
On THURSDAY Venus exits Cancer in order to alleviate the emotional waters and allow for some drama, extravagance and affectionate demonstrativeness - through July 22nd. Sappho, the asteroid representing sex, same sex unions and the poetic muse enters equality minded Libra until September 25th. Interesting, as the Supreme Court will be ruling on same sex unions this week....
