Upcoming Mercury Retrograde and Summer Arrives

“Strength must be redefined not as power- over,  but as power-with.” Matthew Fox

“If we cannot see wholeness in the world then we cannot take actions which are consistent with the wholeness which exists.” David Bohm

Mercury the planet of communication and travel will station retrograde on July 7 and the retrograde period will run through July 31 when it stations direct. A good use of the time before the 7th is to take care of things left undone such as car repairs or other things in need of fixing that have been pushed into the background.

The Summer Solstice – when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer- is Friday June 21 at 11:54 AM EDT. The Sun moving into this sign of home and hearth, it is a good time to think about and enjoy the things that nurture us and make us feel welcome at home and in the world.
It is an edgy time and a time when conflicts can more easily arise. So it’s best to keep a cool head for the next several weeks – especially in interactions with others – as it may be harder to make amends due to impulsive speech or actions made now.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “A woman on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below.”

Sabian symbol from Lynda Hill
