The long hot days of summer are upon us. It's best to take it easy now and not over exert yourself. Try to enjoy the water--whether ocean, lake or brook. We begin the month with the Sun in Cancer, the Cardinal or executive Water sign. Mercury begins in that sign also, though it changes to Leo in a few days. Venus remains in Gemini until the very end of the month, however Mars spends about two thirds of the month in Cancer before moving into fiery Leo. We feel more sensitive during this sign, and kinder. Cancers are usually empathetic and often provide comfort and solace to others. Leo brings out our playful side.

Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are all still retrograde, signaling a slowdown to the energy of change and allowing us to solidify what we may be building. Saturn reflects structure, and its energy can be helpful for reinforcing and strengthening what have been and are actually or symbolically building. Neptune is a symbol for our higher aspirations and desires, when it is retrograde it is easier to meditate. Pluto is all about transformation via rebirth or regeneration, however the seed must burst for the seedling's roots and leaves to come forth. When Pluto is retrograde the change happening is hidden beneath the surface.

The full Moon in Capricorn takes place on the 9th, signaling some kind of political and/or business excitement or conclusion. The next period of two weeks will be ideal for purging anything like old business papers or accounts, straightening up and making order by discarding what you no longer need or want. Saturn ruled Capricorn loves order and clarity. The New Moon in Leo is on the 23rd.  This is an excellent time to initiate creative projects, romance, or opportunities for play. Vacations or enjoyable times planned for then can be extra fun. Creative projects can flourish, as can romance. The two weeks from new to full Moon are ideal for planting and increasing.

Times to be mindful and use the energy wisely are the 2nd with a forceful Mars/Pluto opposition, the 4th with a disruptive Mercury/Uranus square, the 10th with a distracting Sun/Pluto opposition, the 17th with a deceptive Venus/Neptune square and an impactful Mars/Uranus square, the 20th, with a strenuous Sun/Uranus Square, and the 24th with a difficult Venus/Saturn opposition. Best to move carefully, especially with regard to Mars and Uranus around machinery, tools or automobiles. To use the energy well plan to tackle difficult tasks reflective of these energies.

Times to plan for fun and enjoyment are the 5th, with a spiritual Sun/Neptune trine and an expansive Sun/Jupiter square, the 18th with a lucky Venus/Jupiter trine, the 19th with an efficient Mercury/Saturn trine, the 24th with an inventive Mercury/Uranus trine and the 26th with an energetic Sun/Mars conjunction.
