The line up of planets is genuinely frightening this week. Mercury is retrograde making you feel indecisive and with Venus squaring Saturn (July 1) you question whether what you are trying for is even possible. PLUS the Sun opposing Pluto (July 1) sounds like a power struggle and Sun squaring Uranus (July 3) means things just fall apart - to the extent that by mid-week you may be feeling like Rhett Butler and wondering if you even give a damn!

Here's the answer: Jupiter in Cancer is moving to a trine with Neptune and Saturn. It won't be exact till the middle of the month but this most fortunate planet coming up to bless both the planet of dreams AND the planet of reality means we can act now with confidence. In fact, we must for confidence - Jupiter - is the channel that connects your daily work - Saturn - with creative inspiration - Neptune. Such powerful motivation leaves no room for negativity. So for the next couple of days when all these harsh aspects are taunting us with nameless anxiety be more present in the NOW, act with confidence, and watch the fear go away by itself.
Once we get past Wednesday the line up of planets quickly becomes more hospitable. Venus in party mode (Leo) starts moving towards a trine to Uranus, the significator of freedom and independence, a fitting combination for celebrating our country's birthday on July 4. The coast won't be completely clear though as Pluto will be making a difficult inconjunct to Venus Friday just as the Moon is meeting up with an angry Mars Saturday morning. After the brief time out on The Fourth we may find people slipping back into hostile attitudes once again. Moon conjunct Mars in Gemini does offer an opportunity to speak your truth. Just try to remember it's time to communicate, not fight. It will serve you better to focus with clear intention on what you are moving towards, rather than what you are reacting against.
I'm looking forward to Saturn turning direct next Sunday. He's been retrograde since last February making it hard to get traction but hopefully now we'll start seeing our efforts creating some results - provided we still care. If projects (relationships) have lost their significance, Saturn turning direct can signal now is the time to walk away.
Reviewing what I've outlined above, I think the way to tie it all together is to be aware there are a lot of planetary aspects indicating shake up and then Saturn is slowing down and turning direct at the end of the week. It's kinda like we're taking some final sharp turns on a roller coaster with all sorts of things flying out of the car but then we slow down and with a lighter load start heading in the direction we wanted to go in all along. Oh - and don't forget Jupiter is saying, "Have confidence! It only gets better from here!"
Feeling better already,
