Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
Mercury, the planet associated with
communication in all its many forms,
will be retrograde from 07 July – 1 August.
When Mercury is retrograde, there is an
increased likelihood of misunderstandings,
misinterpretations and crossed-wires, a strong
temptation to read between the lines, cut corners or
be economical with the truth. Since Mercury turns retrograde
in your opposite sign of Leo, the zone of your solar chart associated with your dealings with others, professional, personal, emotional and general day-to-day encounters, this is the area of your life most like to be subject to misunderstandings and bad information. What you say or do now might be misconstrued if you’re not careful.
Alternatively, you may find yourself on the receiving end of something similar and emails, texts and letters could be a source of confusion or misunderstandings. With Mars entering Leo from 2 July and meeting a retrograde Mercury in Leo around 09 July, this an undiplomatic, argumentative and incendiary combination and not the best time for important, complicated or sensitive discussions.
Meanwhile, a solar eclipse in Cancer on 3 July, and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn two weeks later, suggests that perhaps it would be prudent to turn your attention to your diet and lifestyle, how you may change some of your bad habits to good habits and develop more efficient and productive daily routines to ground you, regulate your life and make you more effective at doing what you do.
