Wednesday, JULY 24
With retrograde Mercury in alignment with Venus today, we’re inclined to analyze feelings or relationships, particularly past ones. We tend to chat, socialize, and flatter when Mercury and Venus meet, and with Mercury retrograde, and we may be looking back and clarifying feelings or connections. We tend to intellectualize emotions and affections. This is a cooperative influence that stimulates our desire for harmony and balance, and as a result, we may not dig too deeply. Mentally, we’re not as disciplined as usual, preferring to chat with others and to think about pleasant things. It’s a friendly time, but it’s also a time for looking back at old issues in a new, although possibly glossed-over, way. Whether or not glossing over is helpful is the question — some things belong in the past. We can feel as if we are starting fresh. Certainly, our ideas feel new and exciting, even if we are doing some recycling of old perspectives.
The Last Quarter Moon occurs tonight as the Sun in Leo forms a square to the Moon in Taurus. This is not the best time to start a significant project. Instead, it’s time to begin finishing up the details of our plans.
The Moon is void from 10:49 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to Mercury), until the Moon enters Taurus at 5:43 PM EDT.
