The waning last-quarter Moon marches on through Aries today, bravely facing difficult challenges from Saturn in the morning and Pluto in the late afternoon. These harsh aspects may be softened somewhat by positive lunar interactions with Jupiter and Venus.
Even so, you might encounter irritating delays, roadblocks, and petty tyrants. Do your best to tame your inner warrior. The Moon moves on quickly and these frustrations will pass more easily if not engaged.
Mercury, the planet that oversees communications, is slowing down now, putting on the brakes in preparation for his July retrograde period. The trickster planet will enter Leo this evening at 8:19 PM ET where he will move forward ever more slowly until stationing retrograde at 4 degrees of Leo on July 7th. You may start feeling the effects later this week. Be sure to back up all your digital devices!
Mercury will then creep back back back and re-enter Cancer on July 19th, finally turning direct again on July 31st at 23 degrees of Cancer. He’ll gradually pick up speed, re-entering Leo on August 11th and clearing his shadow on August 14th.
