The long hot days of summer are upon us, it's time to kick back and enjoy life to the fullest. Venus in Cancer chooses tender caring for loved ones until the 12th, when she glides into Leo sparking playful pleasure and romance for the remainder of the month. Mercury too begins in Cancer then on the 13th whisks into Leo for more fun and games, dancing with Venus. Mars is still in serious Scorpio, always very effective in the sign it shares with Pluto and happily direct again. Jupiter is still in Virgo, expanding good fortune for that sign. Saturn still moving back in Sagittarius; those with that sign prominent need to take care to dot all "i's and cross all "t's. 

The Sun begins the month in Cancer and enters Leo on the 22nd. Thematically we move from nurturing, caring Cancer to playful, romantic Leo. The New Moon in Cancer falls on the 4th of July. Projects featuring hospitality, nurturing of friends and family, and food are all appropriate for the next two weeks. The Full Moon in Capricorn takes place on the 19th. After that and for the next two weeks it's time to attend to business, toss what's no longer useful, find ways to turn trash into cash, and make other efforts to be efficient as well as effective in your everyday life. Remember the two weeks following the New Moon are good for increase, and following the Full Moon, for decrease.  

Only Uranus changes direction this month, turning retrograde on the 29th. The first few days of July are generally uneventful until the New Moon on the 4th. Pay attention to dreams the night of the 4th and morning of the 5th when Mercury trines Neptune, also a good time for meditation and spiritual practices. The 6th is a great energy day, Venus trines Mars and the Sun conjuncts Mercury indicating high creativity. The 7th is equally exciting and perhaps more brisk with a Venus Uranus square, and both Mercury and the Sun opposing Pluto. The 15th might hold surprises. Be mindful on the 16th another high energy day, with Mercury embracing Venus and the Sun trining Mars. A great day for an adventure. Plan something fun.

On the 19th a Full Moon  is enhanced by a verging Venus trine Saturn, great for stabilizing relationships along with the wisps of the Mercury trine same earlier.   On the 22nd the Sun prances into Leo and the energy we all feel expands to fit the image. The 26th and 27th are influenced by Mercury trining Uranus an excellent indication of creativity and inventiveness. Plan a project involving fun and art. On the 29th be very mindful whether driving or using machinery, almost simultaneously Mercury squares Mars and Uranus makes its station to turn retrograde. The afternoon could be a very energetic time, so be aware of surprise moves or unusual energies coming out of the blue. Duck if you can. The month ends with Mercury moving into Virgo on the 30th, and generally speaking we all feel more practical and better focused.
