the as­tro­log­i­cal pat­terns have con­stantly re­minded us of the world’s se­ri­ous prob­lems. Th­ese dif­fi­cul­ties won’t go away, but the mood light­ens over the next month. Venus, Mer­cury, and the sun are now all in in­ter­nal, self-pro­tec­tive, home-nur­tur­ing Cancer. The sun op­posed se­ri­ous Pluto on Thurs­day, leav­ing an emo­tional heav­i­ness in the air — a shared melan­cholic aware­ness of loss or change in the world — though we may all see things dif­fer­ently.

On Fri­day, thought­ful Mer­cury trines op­ti­mistic Jupiter, and we want to be more proac­tive about those con­cerns that weigh on us. We’ll feel bet­ter if we fix some­thing or learn a new skill. For the next few nights, soon af­ter sun­set, we can see the moon danc­ing with Jupiter in the night sky, a sight that can lift our spir­its.

On Sunday and Mon­day, a diplo­matic Libra moon helps us col­lab­o­rate and brings a flir­ta­tious edge. How­ever, we still need to speak the truth as Mer­cury trines ar­gu­men­ta­tive Mars. Ev­ery­one needs room to say what they see, and to feel loved any­way. If there is a de­ci­sion we’ve de­ferred or a bold act we need to make, this week may bring a turn­ing point. We may sur­prise our­selves by chang­ing our mind and tak­ing a sharp turn early next week as Mer­cury squares Uranus. Leo sea­son — the sum­mer’s out­go­ing, arts-ori­ented, opin­ion­ated, com­mu­nity-build­ing, new-ro­mance bud­ding time — starts as Venus en­ters Leo on Mon­day, and Mer­cury fol­lows on Tues­day. Though a Scorpio moon sharp­ens our edges mid­week, this Leo in­flux can bring us out of our shells.

We need to make heal­ing ges­tures to­day. Lighter mo­ments give us the room to han­dle big­ger prob­lems. This morn­ing brings a breath of op­ti­mism. Let work slide away and con­nect around din­ner­time as the moon op­poses Nep­tune.

It’s a pos­i­tive but rest­less day; the urge to fix, weed, and ex­per­i­ment is strong. Tonight, our di­ges­tion might be touchy, but com­mu­ni­ca­tion flows as we an­a­lyze and ex­pand the world to­gether while the sun sex­tiles Jupiter.

Although the moon en­ters friendly, if usu­ally in­de­ci­sive, Libra this morn­ing, we can know our own mind and find prac­ti­cal so­lu­tions as Mer­cury trines Mars. We have an un­usu­ally strong gut sense about what we want and don’t want.

Mer­cury squares Uranus and frees our minds from old as­sump­tions. We re­ject old lim­i­ta­tions, but can feel dis­grun­tled though po­ten­tially ex­cited about the changes com­ing. Elec­tri­cal and me­chan­i­cal odd­i­ties com­pli­cate mat­ters.

In the name of pro­tect­ing our­selves from re­jec­tion or crit­i­cism, we may re­ject and crit­i­cize oth­ers as the moon squares com­mu­nica­tive Mer­cury and en­ters self-pro­tec­tive Scorpio. We can turn dis­com­fort into cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion if we step out of in­ter­per­sonal dy­nam­ics and take a mo­ment alone.

No­tice a stub­born ap­proach-avoid­ance con­flict about be­ing seen. Mer­cury and Venus now in Leo bring out our in­ner di­vas; we want to share what we know, but the pri­vate Scorpio moon con­juncts ir­ri­ta­ble Mars and makes our tails twitch.

This day is full of per­son­al­ity as the Scorpio moon trines the sun and con­juncts Mars midafter­noon. Let’s not ask a ques­tion un­less we’re will­ing to hear “no” as an an­swer.
