Taking a look at the current planetary alignments, you might notice that the Air signs are sorely underrepresented. The Moon's in Aquarius, but only until tomorrow, when it dives into watery Pisces. Otherwise, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are empty of planets until August 16th, when Venus moves into Libra.
The Air signs allow us to detach. They represent intellect and objectivity. Right now, things are a little...emotional. Moody Cancer is loaded with Jupiter, Mars and Mercury. Dramatic Leo has the Sun and picky Virgo has Venus. And of course, there's Saturn in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, Neptune in Pisces and Uranus in Aries. Laid-back Sagittarius, the sign that gives us perspective, is also empty.
It's difficult to detach and think, rather than feel. Everything is so personal. You can use this energy to crusade, or dive head first into a project that means everything to you. Or you can get angry/offended/offensive/hurt. And others will be just as subjective and dramatic as you.
For the next couple of weeks, remind yourself that objectivity is in short supply.
BTW, you may have heard something about a Grand Sextile on July 29th (in the Earth and Water signs). It's a big deal, and I'll write about it tomorrow.
