Mercury Retrograde The Trickster planet appears to move backwards from June 7 at 7:56 a.m. ET through July 1 at 8:50 a.m. Mercury Retrograde sets up a cycle to deepen internal communicative arts: meditation, intuition and reflection. This is emphasized in the sign of Cancer, as well as flashes of memory that bubble up to the surface. Many people think of retrograde Mercury in a negative light, because in our 24/7 high tech world, the illusion is that “I need it now” is more important than editing, ruminating and revisions. The “re” thrives over the next few weeks: remember, reconsider, redo and recognize!

Saturn is retrograde through July 20. When the planet that signifies responsibility, discipline, boundaries and limitation goes retrograde, we need to reassess these themes. If you take on more than you are able to handle, expect a backslide. It is advisable to only agree to tasks you know you can accomplish because overextension cheats the whole picture. It is better instead to reign in your goals to achievable. The next several months support the ability to put strategies in place that maintain for the long run. Depending on your business, this may or may not be a time to initiate. Shortcuts are not recommended. Saturn in Scorpio demands a laser-like delving into finances, especially those shared with others.
Pluto retrograde through late September: More underground activity will be plumbed, explored and eventually exposed. If someone or something pulls strings on your fate, the next several months may bring the problem to closer revelation.
Moon VOC (void of course) Defined-
We still experience long VOC (void-of-course) days. This is when the moon no longer makes any geometric aspect to another planet until she leaves that sign.
Since the moon has to do with emotions/moods, when she’s VOC, people don’t have an emotional attachment to the outcome of a project or purchase. That’s why it is not recommended to sign a contract, buy anything of value, schedule an important meeting or start a new project during the VOC.
HOWEVER, if the VOC moon touches a significant point in your PERSONAL horoscope, this could be a game changer. This is a karmic moment, which means you could be in a position to make a decision or start something that has a destined purpose. This is why it does matter to have dates checked by a professional if something important is at stake, unless you can make this calculation yourself.
Prolonged VOCs occur when all the outer planets are in low degrees of a sign. There is always a positive way to use the VOC energy but you can’t force it. Avoid shopping unless you know what you’re going to purchase ahead of time- however, it is common to find it out of stock.
