When your home planet Mercury goes retrograde while in the Lion’s fiery sign on July 7, your pride is on the line. Your worst nightmare is looking bad in front of an audience. Preparation and rehearsal can lower those odds significantly.
The sun is in sensitive Cancer when it opposes deep Pluto in practical Capricorn on the fourteenth, which could create behavior bordering on obsessive-compulsive. Ask yourself if there’s anything you can do to change the circumstances you’re in, and if the answer is no, find a way to let it go.
Mercury is still retrograde when it enters emotional Cancer on July 19, so you might give off a defensive tone without even meaning to. You can’t help taking negative comments personally, but there’s no reason to hold on to them longer than necessary.
It’s tempting to tell someone how you really feel about them during the Mercury-Venus conjunction in the Crab’s emotional sign on the twenty-fourth, but it might not go exactly as planned. When the results aren’t what you hoped for, you can’t hide your sadness. Being emotionally vulnerable might be one of your least favorite states of being.
Loving Venus enters big-hearted Leo on July 27, opening your world to love and romance. If you’ve been closed off recently, this will feel great.
