Astro Alert: Mercury Goes Direct

Posted on July 06 2020

This July, we’re tying up loose ends as Mercury and Venus, previously retrograde, are now opening up new perspectives on old problems during their direct motion. While Saturn retrograde in Capricorn reminds us that a little effort will go a long way, the Sun in Leo is on the search for fun. How will we integrate more of our past experiences this month, while also taking advantage of the joyful summer days?

From June 18 to July 12, Mercury retrograde in Cancer has been calling us back home in different ways: through childhood memories, family visits, nostalgia, or closeness with people who served as our nurturers at a point in our lives.

Between July 11 and 13, important events or insights could take place linked to family, childhood memories and conditioning, our physical home, and our inner sense of safety. Stay mindful of the thoughts and emotions that arise for you at this time and see how they link to what has been resurfacing in your life in the past month.

Around the 12th, it’s a perfect time to rest and to dream. Leave practical matters for another time if you can- we won’t be at peak efficiency, especially since Mercury’s direct station in Cancer brings the last wave of nostalgia and emotional release. Huddling together with loved ones and a little escapism might be just what we need these days. The good news is that Mercury retro mix-ups are finally done with! What new insights into old problems, perhaps linked to childhood, family, or home, has Mercury brought you this time?

Mercury in Cancer is about remembering and forgiving, going within to gain awareness of our needs, and then expressing them to others. Starting from July 12, we will be clearer about what we need from others and how we can ask for it, while also being aware that we’re responsible for our own feelings. If some of us have taken steps to heal a strained family relationship, finding common ground will be easier after Mercury goes direct.

We could get the feeling that we’ve integrated old experiences and tied up some emotional loose ends, ready to move forward with more empathy and gentleness for ourselves and for others. Until July 26, we’ll keep processing the past month’s experiences and perhaps choosing differently. Starting from August, we’ll be moving on for good after Mercury leaves his retrograde shadow.
