July 6-12, 2020

Cancer season is not the most comfortable for you, Sag, as the sun moves through your house of transformation. Change isn’t comfortable for everyone, but you can roll with it. Mercury retrograde has you thinking about what other people have, and how you can think of ways to get it, too! Mars clashes with Mercury retrograde and you are tempted to address these insecurities in order to build a deeper form of intimacy in your friendships and romantic relationships as well. Just make sure it doesn’t lead to a blow-out! Mercury retrograde ends and you are able to move forward knowing more about what other people have to offer you. Look out for an overactive imagination, though, as the sun harmonizes with dreamy Neptune, creating mystery.

The cosmic events behind this week’s horoscope:

Mercury retrograde ends this week, but the bookends of Mercury retrogrades are typically the most challenging or inconvenient moments. Not to mention, on Wednesday, July 8, messenger Mercury will clash with warrior Mars! Everyone is going to want things to go their own way. Look out for arguments and clashing interests. There can also be misunderstandings, in typical Mercury retrograde fashion, which just propel any conflicts further.

Mercury retrograde ends on Sunday July 12, at 4:26 AM. The days that Mercury begins and ends its retrograde are when the typical delays of retrograde periods are most strongly felt. This is because these are the times that the motion of the planet of communication and commerce comes to an apparent stop. When Mercury slams on the brakes, everything jerks with it!

There is extra confusion as the sun harmonizes with Neptune, the planet of fantasies. People are going to believe whatever they want to believe! This is a great time of course to convince people of your point of view, or to ask for forgiveness for whatever petty fights pop up earlier in the week, but also look out for distractions. It’s better to face your problems head-on than to just ignore them, right?

All times ET.
