There will be a New Moon at 8°37’ Leo (antiscion 21°24’ Taurus) in the early hours of the 1st of August (GMT). Only a few hours later Mercury will station direct at 23°58’ Cancer (antiscion 6°02’ Gemini) after what, for some of us, has been a period fraught with inconveniences and delays of all kinds.

However, with the Sun in Cancer separating from [...]
Re-think, re-do, re-plan.
The 3-week retrograde period will begin on the 7th of July at 4°27’ Leo (antiscion 25°33’ Taurus) and end on the 1st of August at 23°58’ Cancer (antiscion 6°02’ Gemini).
In Leo, all planets want to be respected according to their nature. Mercury in Leo wants to be respected for his opinions and views and in desiring this, self-confidence often turns into bravado and presumption.
