Chances are good we’re going to end pacing ourselves today whether we like it or not. The Moon left quick moving Aries before dawn for placid Taurus. She loves being in Taurus! For most of the day the Taurus Moon ambles along, stopping to smell the flowers before giving the Cancer Sun a big hug late afternoon/early evening. This is a good day to go out for lunch with friends or make sure the break room is stocked with delicious edibles. Take a moment here and there to appreciate the simple beauties of the natural world if you can. 🌠☾♉🌠

Big news today is Mars in Scorpio stations direct! From the feedback I’ve gotten and my own experiences, I have to say this has been a tough Mars Retrograde for many, many people. Well, it is finally over and we’ll see a slow but steady build up of forward momentum over the next few weeks. We will very likely be reminded many times why Mars in Scorpio is not to be taken lightly as he begins to straighten out messes created during the retrograde period.

The other major shift today is Mercury leaving airy Gemini for watery Cancer, leaving us with no planets in air for quite some time. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius folk are not going to enjoy this in part because they will have to work extra hard to make sure someone provides a more objective point of view. The Sun, Mercury and Venus will all be in Cancer until mid-July when Mercury and Venus shift into fiery Leo within a few days of each other. This will be a great time to practice tuning into our intuition and paying close attention to how we feel. Good luck!
