Mercury into Leo August 8
My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.
Plenty going bonkers in my world as Mercury is a week into the shadowzone (where it traces its own Rx path) lots of family stuff which is indicative of Cancer. Sun and Jupiter square Virgo stellium from my 6th, so I had to check out to try to get caught up. Not there yet, so I may check out a bit yet, FYI.
Cancer is Moon ruled, so anything from the well of psyche – the womb and the tomb – aka 4th house is getting the intense navel gaze. Mercury Rx indicates communication turned inward – thought processing, revision, reinvention, reworking, wires can get crossed and/or messages delayed. Not traditionally the time to sign big contracts (triple check documents if you have to sign) to start major new projects or run off at the mouth honking a brain full of know-it-all ideas, if you get my drift.
Cardinals: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorns are at Rx getting lots of energies in flux as Jupiter enters Cancer on the 25th, to join Sun and Venus (Venus in the latter degrees, at 28), Mercury Rx on the 26th.
Degrees between 23-13 of Aries and Libra will be running the obstacle course, feeling the strain. Degrees 23-13 of water signs feel more harmonious. These degrees of Taurus and Virgo have opportunities on the horizon – take advantage of them. Capricorn and Cancer energies face off, peace talks and compromise.
Mercury Rx opposing (not exact, by sign) Pluto Rx in Capricorn will be intense retrospective of past, men, work, career, status as it relates to women, home, privacy, depth of feeling and instincts.
Mercury Rx in Moon ruled Cancer is an excellent time to brush up on Lunar Nodes.
In addition, retrograde energies of Saturn, Chiron, and Neptune add more layers of mining for insights in the caves and underbellies of the houses they transit.
Ride it out.
Find your house of Cancer to find where your thoughts will be turning inward.
