Whirrrr! There’s a lot of nervous energy flying around early this week as the confident Sun squares off with electrifying Uranus. We could all feel rather buzzy and ungrounded, especially on Tuesday, July 8, when the two planets form an exact 90-degree angle to each other. Our attention may come in short bursts, our brilliance in flashes. Keep the voice recorder app cued up because these strokes of genius should not be lost. And once it’s documented, we might need to hit the gym hard or rage at the karaoke bar, to get some attention-whoring urges out of our systems. Warning: we could see some ego clashes early this week too. The powers that be and the revolutionaries will not have the easiest time drawing a peace accord, that’s for sure. But a Sun-Uranus square can pave the way for change, the kind that is long overdue. This could be the week where the iconoclasts put the bullies in their place; where Revenge Of The Nerds becomes more than just a faded memory of a ridiculous 1980s movie. (One that we naughty Sagittarians snuck into as kids, and got kicked out of fifteen minutes later by the theater attendant due to its R-rating. But we digress…)
Saturday marks the full moon in Capricorn, so circle back to your New Year’s resolutions. This full moon is the manifestation point of the corresponding new moon in Capricorn on January 1, 2014. Have you reached those peaks to which you hoped to ascend or are you headed for a valley? Consider Saturday your half-year check-in point where you can take stock, celebrate victories and recalibrate your direction if needed. Goals! Goals! Goals! Follow the desire to map them out and don’t be surprised if a few come to fruition this weekend.
On Sunday, messenger Mercury returns to Cancer until July 30, softening our communication style and making us all crave cozy connections. Mercury visited Cancer briefly already this year—from May 29 until June 17. People who showed up in early June could return as central figures this month. If you started making plans to visit family, move, or redecorate your home only to find them derailed when Mercury turned retrograde from June 7 to July 1, take heart. You can pick up where you left off again this Sunday and make major progress before the month is through.
