With only two notable cosmic events, this week’s astrological forecast is quite calm compared to the tumult of the last few weeks. First, there’s an inspiring moment on the 25th when warrior planet Mars connects with eccentric Uranus. This aspect has us making moves on our most creative, progressive and unusual ideas. Whatever we put effort into will come easily.
On the 28th, messenger planet Mercury––still moving at lightning speed!––enters moody Cancer. For an idea of what Mercury in Cancer’s all about, please note that sensitive pop queens Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey were both born with Mercury in Cancer. (Got that “Summertime Sadness” anyone?) With the communication planet in the crab’s sign until August 5th and Venus still retrograde, there’s no escaping our feelings. The love songs and breakup poems are inevitable so why not start writing them now?
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
