Mercury retrograde is over and now is the time for reflection. Messenger Mercury has been retrograde in emotional Cancer since June 17th, and objective Saturn also turned retrograde in Capricorn around the same time. With multiple planets retrograde right now, you may have noticed eerily similar situations rearing their heads when you assumed you were already past them!
This week the Cosmos wants you to consider what you learned over the last month and what changes are necessary to implement the growth that has taken place within you. Your emotions may be a bit up and down this week so pull out your journals and intentionally process your thoughts.
On Monday, the Moon enters Taurus at 12:34 pm CST where it forms a rigid alignment to Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn and flows to Mars in Aries. Your journal prompt for Monday: What values and beliefs do I have that hold me back? How will reframing and releasing them set me free?
On Tuesday, the Taurus Moon connects with change-maker Uranus and communicative Mercury. The Sun is forming an opposition with positive Jupiter. Your journal prompt for Tuesday: When do I feel most powerful and what practice can I implement that allows me to tap into that power daily?
Wednesday, the soft Cancer Sun is opposite discerning Pluto while the Moon completes it's Taurus transit with a connection to Jupiter and Saturn. Your journal prompt for Wednesday: What are some of the less obvious signs that I am out of alignment? Meaning, when I get off track, what are some "alarms" I can set to know it's time to tune in to myself again?
A Gemini Moon greets us early on Thursday at 1:19 am CST. On Thursday and Friday, the Moon connects with Mars in assertive Aries and Venus in chatty Gemini. Your journal prompt for Thursday & Friday: Silence is violence. Where are the areas in my life where I have harmed myself by not expressing my truth? At work? In my relationships? Maybe, (and most importantly), with myself?
Saturday begins with the Moon returning to its home sign Cancer at 9:24 am CST. Then on Sunday, the Moon in Cancer meets with messenger Mercury again, as well as action-oriented Mars and breakthrough Uranus. Your journal prompt for Saturday & Sunday: You've learned a lot about yourself this week. Now it's time to put your money where your mouth is. What difficult, yet healing conversations do you need to have this weekend? Who do you need to share yourself with to breathe easier? It's time.
