July 29 - August 3

The tail end of Mercury Retrograde is here! 

On Wednesday, Mercury finally moves direct in Cancer and ends its retrograde mania. Remember, there’s a post-retrograde shadow period too so we’re not completely out of the woods yet. You can expect little tremors - but nothing too serve - like after an earthquake until August 15th.  When Mercury moves direct, it’s all about application. We’ll want to apply what we learned while Mercury was retrograde since July 7th to the arenas that call for it. It’s time for the clean-up or clear-up conversations, new project ventures, beginnings, and forward momentum.

That same exact day, a lucky New Moon in Leo is listening to your intentions on creativity, joy, confidence, and happiness. You’ll read in the horoscopes below where this New Moon in Leo aspects your life and you’ll want to review how you contribute worthiness, power, and charisma to it. Where we have this New Moon, we are not easily afforded the right to stay powerless, too fearful, or without shame resilience. We’re called to see ourselves as radiant, limitless, and willing to shine so we can invite others to set themselves free from fear too. 

A steady Virgo Moon all weekend helps us take the small steps towards with our dreams. We’ll want to find the divine in the details, outline a new strategy for Mercury direct’s momentum, and enjoy the simplicity of the summer.
