Mercury just recently entered the sign of Cancer and moves up to a very favorable alignment with Jupiter at the beginning of the week. This brings the opportunity for more expansive and optimistic thinking.

Chiron stations retrograde at 12 degrees of Aries on Thursday. Chiron is the asteroid of the Wounded Healer and governs the evolutionary journey of wounding and healing. This provides a good time to look back at progress made in this area of your life.
On Thursday Venus will move up to a quincunx to Neptune this week. This can be a very romantic and idealistic combination but the quincunx alignment tends towards overly idealistic or unrealistic ideas. When planets are in a quincunx alignment it indicates there is a constant need for adjustment. So it’s wise to exercise extra care with finances or in romantic matters. Yearnings and cravings can be stronger with this influence also.
