On Tuesday, July 27, Mercury, the planet of communication, enters bold fire sign Leo, at 9:11 PM. We’re excited to talk about all of the receipts and information we gathered during Mercury in Cancer. After a lot of thinking and moody, artsy brooding, we’re ready to express these articulations!

Jupiter retrogrades back into air sign Aquarius on Wednesday, July 28, at 8:24 AM. Since May, Jupiter has been in its home sign of Pisces, where it’s been well equipped to invite miraculous  opportunities into our lives. Now that it’s back in Aquarius, we’re more rigid, rule-abiding, and ready to dial it back. There is a sobering quality of Jupiter in Aquarius, which lasts until it enters Pisces again at the very end of 2021.

On Thursday, July 29, Mars faces off with Jupiter, igniting philosophical debates. There is a division of beliefs and interests. Some people are fighting for the sake of their own pride, while others are more thoughtful of the group. This is also just a passionate and exciting moment when we’re expending a ton of energy. Remember to stretch, hydrate, and rest! Mars, the planet of action and war, moves into detail-oriented earth sign Virgo at 4:32 PM, bringing mental sharpness and the tact required to do surgery on a grape. This is a great time for tattoo artists.

On Sunday, August 1, at 10:07 AM, Mercury meets with the sun: This is a moment when things that were hidden or uncertain become totally clear. Important messages are received. Look out for what’s in the news. Finally you’re getting a clear idea! Mercury also faces off with serious Saturn, which can slow things down. Our fresh, brilliant ideas need to meet certain protocols or there are steps we need to take before an idea is fully concrete, and some things need to be let go in order to lighten the load.

All times ET.
