Mercury goes direct in Gemini on July 1st, smoothing out communication and the flow of information. Choices should become easier, and this will be enabled by a trine to the transiting North Node in Libra from July 1st to 4th. The North Node represents what needs to be developed, and its aspect to Mercury clearly points to harmonious negotiations and balanced choices. Gemini is about more than one option, and Libra sees both sides of one issue. Together, these energies encourage moving beyond your tunnel vision, preconceptions or pet idea. Others have something to add to what you’ve already decided. From July 2nd to 4th, the Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto Rx in Capricorn. Pluto’s deep restructuring has been compared to death. It triggers a transformation that’s so final, there’s no going back. Pluto is also about power, powerlessness and your Shadow. These issues will be hi-lighted, and since an opposition is involved, so will the themes of culmination and projection. The intense focus and release that this aspect brings will not just involve you; whether you’re projecting your power/your Shadow, or someone else is projecting it onto you, this will be the release of what has been building.
Mercury direct in your communications sector trines the North Node in your relationship sector. Partnership discussions (business or romantic) can experience significant forward momentum. Communication in general (emails, phone calls, conversations) is more harmonious as the give and take of information flows naturally. The Sun in your domestic sector opposes Pluto Rx in your career sector, bringing tensions between public/private, family/career and past/future to a tipping point.

Mercury direct in your security sector trines the North Node in your sector of routine. Financial and emotional well-being is hooked up with your readiness to handle obligations, or tackle health issues.

Co-worker relationships may also take on added significance. The Sun in your communication opposes Pluto Rx in your opportunities sector, hi-lighting your efforts (or shift in perspective) around reaching out/going further. This could be the moment to pull back and re-focus, or push forward with renewed assurance. Another possibility is the “death” of an idea or fact that you depended on; if it no longer makes sense, it’s time to release it.

- Focus on: expanding your ideas, transforming your understanding of the facts, refocusing your words

The Sun in your sign opposes Pluto Rx in your partnership sector, bringing a relationship power balance into focus. The issues may involve a reshuffling of power, your partner’s transformation or your projected issues.

- Your path forward: applying what’s hinted at/hidden to home, family, home business, relocation issues
- Focus on: a relationship power shift, power dynamics between you and another, “owning” your partner, or vice versa

There is more than one side to this story and you’ll benefit if you cooperate with everyone involved. The Sun in your social sector opposes Pluto Rx in your sector of self-expression. The long, steep road through a slowly transforming situation involving creativity, children or new romance will be given perspective through external, social input.

Alternatively, you may encounter a clear sign that it’s time to let go of a personal goal.
- Your path forward: compromise involving money and/or emotional needs
- Focus on: public attention to a private goal, public recognition for your efforts, the intensified need to be appreciated by others, releasing a desire that’s no longer valid

Delays end, information comes through, and plans can be made regarding long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing.

Increasing your influence in new areas, increasing your knowledge, or empowering yourself by reaching further are all possible themes. For some Scorpios, your gradually shifting perspective may point to a whole new philosophy or ideal; just be sure that what you believe is not projected with absolute authority onto others. There’s more than one version of “right.”
- Your path forward: investigate, look deeper, look for what’s not obvious
- Focus on: legal battles, graduation, exploration of new ideas/philosophies, power struggles/projections over “right and wrong”
Mercury direct in your partnership sector trines the North Node in your social sector, pointing to improved discussions/agreements with almost everyone (friends, groups and lovers). It will be easier for you to get your point across, and you’ll be more receptive to what others have to say. Partnership discussions/plans can grow as new, future possibilities emerge. Think big and include others outside the relationship. Single Sags can use this influence to explore new, romantic possibilities in social settings. The Sun in your sector of shared resources opposes Pluto Rx in your sector of personal resources. Your changing, financial status (or emotional security base) may push you to ask for help, re-prioritize your resources, or cut someone off. Then again, you may be the one who’s cut off. Issues with others around sharing, spending, giving, possessiveness or jealousy will be your focus, and a change is necessary.
- Your path forward: communication with others, opening yourself up to new associations, balanced and flexible discussions with a partner
- Focus on: debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s money, physical/emotional intimacy, boundaries, sharing, possessiveness

If you have ideas for management, are involved in a job search, or have an idea for your business, now’s the time to speak up or send that email. The Sun in your partnership sector opposes Pluto Rx in your sign. A death, transformation or obsession that’s occurred (or is currently happening) in your life/identity can put a relationship in a whole new light. Or, a partner’s reaction could make you aware that something needs to be released. The changes that have been hitting you are massive, but you’re not the only one being affected.

A creative project, new romance or issues/information around children/pregnancy will move forward, and see increased possibilities beyond their initial manifestation. Your ideas can go further, your words can have a wider audience, or you can expand the original concept into more areas. Long-distance travel, education, legal matters and publishing are the areas where you can enhance what you’re creating/hoping for. Learn more about your subject or express yourself to a new audience. The Sun in your sector of routine opposes Pluto Rx in your hidden sector. Background transformations, or a major ending/release, will break through the barrier between subconscious and conscious. This could be triggered by a health/work issue, or it could simply be time for what’s hidden to manifest physically.
- Your path forward: broadening the scope of your creative/romantic impulses, thinking big picture
- Focus on: external manifestations of internal changes, health, work tasks, obligations
Mercury direct in your domestic sector trines the North Node in your sector of shared resources, signalling forward movement for domestic discussions, home businesses, mortgage/rental agreements and relocation plans. The North Node’s influence suggests financial assistance or emotional support is available, but you’ll probably have to ask or dig a bit deeper. Regardless, others have what you need to keep the wheels turning. The Sun in your sector of self-expression opposes Pluto Rx in your social sector. Public power struggles, a friendship’s transformation or ending, or a shift in your public image will impact a personal or creative goal. How you respond to public/social changes can either intensify your drive to succeed, or make you feel like giving up. Whatever happens out there, know that your path to success is primarily fuelled by you. Even if you have to make adjustments to your goals, or don’t receive the applause you were hoping for,consider this a re-birth.
- Your path forward: other people’s money or assistance, sharing your domestic plans
- Focus on: the impact of social changes on personal goals, success, public impact of self-expression, children/pregnancy, new romance, creative projects
