While your birthday month and new solar year is still three weeks away, Mercury’s first full week in Cancer is a chance to get a jump on this. Mercury only returned last Friday but already it is dawning on you that even just this taste of things to comes feels a lot more relaxed. Missing is both the pressure and urgency, for instead of rushing through in just 14 to 15 days, Mercury is here for the next two months. Missing are the roadblocks of the past while having Mars in an adventurous part of your chart has you excited about the journey ahead. Meanwhile, with the month long wind down of your solar year still underway and with Venus in retrograde motion in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart, there is a general call to slow down and pace yourself. This might see some push back to an eclipsing Full Moon in your work sector just as you move into the weekend but even here there is a lack of urgency.
This is a month when the lines between the past, present and future are set to become even more blurred and not just because of the number of planets in retrograde motion this month. As well as Jupiter spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector you have Saturn in his first and only full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector, Venus in retrograde motion in a nostalgic part of your chart until 25th June, Mercury turning retrograde in Cancer on 18th June and Neptune in an adventurous part on 23rd June. Yet where old doors are opening, in many cases new doors are opening as well. When Neptune turns retrograde in an adventurous part of your chart on 23rd June he will turn his attention and your imagination onto the past, with a chance to reflect on the bucket list you began the year with. Often this is more a case of wishful thinking but with Mars here until 28th June, his passion for adventure makes it hard to be an armchair tourist in your own life. With Mars not only returning to your career sector on 28th June but spending the whole second half of the year here, he will be anxious to do what he can to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. For while you will have to wait four weeks for Mars’ return, a lunar eclipse on the job front on 6th June will get the month off to a good start professionally. Another example of where both new and old doors are opening at the same time is on the personal front. Mercury will turn retrograde in Cancer on 18th June, just three days before your birthday month and new solar year are due to begin on 21st June. However, the Sun won’t be on his own, with the Moon not only returning a few hours later but aligning to create a solar eclipse in the first day of your birthday month and new solar year. A solar eclipse can open new doors or bring unexpected new beginnings, at a time when Mercury is just one of many planets holding the doors open to the past and second chances.
