Tuesday, JULY 5
Early today, Mars enters Taurus, and twenty minutes later, Mercury heads into Cancer. These planets quickly form a sextile, boosting our enthusiasm for our ideas and methods. We can be especially alert and observant, as well as incredibly resourceful. Energies are fresh, and our minds are busy.
Mars will transit Taurus until August 20th, and we can go to great lengths to protect what’s ours and build our feelings of security and comfort during this cycle. We’re determined, stubborn, and persistent. Mars in Taurus can be a relatively passive influence but full-on when resisting or defending something! In stark contrast to the impulsive Mars-in-Aries cycle, we pursue our goals by plodding along patiently. We’re looking for long-term satisfaction, although we can be particularly focused on creature comforts.
Mercury is in Cancer until July 19th. During this cycle, we think, speak, and take in information on a deep, intuitive level. Our emotions color our thoughts more than usual, we communicate with more sensitivity, meaning, and care, and our memory is retentive during this cycle. It’s a time to absorb information about the emotional background, atmosphere, and setting. We’re picking up on moods and tones in addition to facts.
However, today’s Venus-Mars semi-square spotlights differences in our approaches, desires, and needs, resulting in strained relationship dynamics. It’s best to watch for stirring the pot, temperamentality, or impulsive moves.
The void Moon occurs from 2:04 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Pluto), until the Moon enters Libra at 6:26 PM EDT.
