Astrologer heed thy own advice! Yes, don’t try to get anything done in a hurry under a Mars Retrograde! My husband has been attempting to renovate a bathroom in our house since the end of April. It’s been non-stop interruptions, and the typical Retrograde returns, the wrong bathtub was delivered, then the wrong tiles, plus we keep changing our minds about what we want. So glad Mars turns Direct tomorrow. Let’s get this job done already.
Unfortunately, as predicted with Mars being very powerful as it changes direction and turns direct, the terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport was one last Mars Retrograde attack. Sending blessings to those who were killed and their families, plus the hundreds injured.
June 29 Mercury enters CANCER to blend our mental chatter and our conversations with our feelings. We are analyzing through an emotional filter and feelings will be more tender, sentimental, receptive and nurturing. While Mercury is in Cancer with Venus and the Sun, Mars in Scorpio and Athena, Neptune, the South Node and Chiron in Cancer-that’s a lot of water element planets. The upcoming July 4th New Moon in Cancer features all of these planets including the Moon-that’s 9 planets/asteroids in water, article coming soon.
While Mercury is in Cancer June 29- July 13th things to do:
Cancer is the First Cardinal Water sign of the mother and children, it is the sign ruled by the moon. Cancer is MOM, families, home, our roots, ancestors, our moods, our emotional security needs, literally where we live, our emotional grounding, our early childhoods, our tummies, what we nurture and how we nourish ourselves or not. Real estate, food and endings are also Cancerian 4th house energies. This is the sign/ house of privacy, symbolic midnight, the womb, everyone’s source.
TO DO –
Have lots of family dinners, house parties, BBQ,’s happy family gatherings, get togethers, gatherings and generally lots of good eating. FOODIES rejoice. Cancer energy is all about the tummy’s fulfillment.

This is very fertile energy if you are trying to get pregnant. Or give birth to anything metaphorically speaking.
Think about your Mother, Cancer is the Mother, your relationship with her which is primary to every human on the earth. We are our mother’s my Tibetan Buddhist teacher impressed on me. Understand that you are your mother, by virtue of having been part of everything in her life as well as her mother cellularly is phenomenal. Think about that. I know it drove me crazy for years. It is so hard to accept that we are our mothers. The Earth is our mother too. Think about all the billions of women who have given birth to every person who has ever lived. What is the state of women in the world today?
Your stomach may be more sensitive while Mercury is in Cancer. It’s a good time to watch how meditation calms your nerves and tummy. Also be aware that you are what you eat. It’s a good time to change your diet and eat what feels good and nourishes you, not what you want to eat, or just enjoy.
Mercury in Cancer is literally about digesting, How much info are you actually digesting in the overflow of info these days? If you are feeling overwhelmed perhaps its a good time for a fast. Just as it is healthy to take a break from eating to allow the body to rest and heal itself even for a day, it could be beneficial to take an info break too. Research shows that people are addicted to their smart phones. It’s a holiday weekend coming up in America and Canada as it is both countries Birthdays. Take a break from your phone. Millennials don’t know life without cellphones the way us oldsters do. Just give your brain and your tummy a rest.

The mood becomes slower, more stable and cautious when the Moon is in Taurus. It is time to simply enjoy being in the Garden of Eden of this beautiful planet and to enjoy our physical senses and the beauty all around us.
These are largely feminine energy days- the Moon transits Gemini from July 1-3rd but then we will be literally swimming on the July 4th New Moon watery elemental flood which continues until July 10. Do expect lots of rain and flooding.
There is one difficult aspect on the 29th moon inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius.
if you are too stubborn or overly cautious you may miss an opportunity to travel, to discover something new or to test your faith in yourself.
