Wednesday, JULY 3
Mercury forms a minor challenging aspect with Neptune today, which can serve to diffuse our concentration or focus. We’re more likely to perceive situations in an impractical or overly optimistic way, making it a less than ideal time for clear thinking and the handling of details. The Moon is in Cancer most of the day, and we are more concerned than usual with our personal lives and family. We’re inclined to respond to challenges or stress by retreating or withdrawing. We may prefer to stick with safe and familiar people, places, and situations right now.
Venus enters Cancer today, where it will transit until the 27th. Venus in Cancer is nurturing, protective and self-protective, cautious, and fertile. We experience many emotional ups and downs in love under this influence due to increased sensitivity and impressionability. We are tender, romantic, and attached. We show our love through our devotion, care, and concern. We’re at our best when we feel safe and secure. During this cycle, we may have a greater interest in home life and home improvement, nesting, home business, domestic and family activities, and purchases of long-term items.
Saturn’s opposition to the true North Node of the Moon is a longer-term aspect that can point to challenges related to hanging on to old habits that may be preventing us from growing, improving, and thriving. We should watch for sticking with the familiar only for fear of change. Interestingly, fear of quiet, intimacy, spending more time with loved ones, family, and ourselves may be the issues at this time, in part because these things take us away from our ambitions and work which feel a little safer or more measurable for the time being, somewhat ironically. The Moon enters Leo at 11:20 PM EDT, which can bring out our desire to entertain and share.
The Moon is void from 10:25 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to Pluto), until the Moon enters Leo at 11:20 PM EDT.
