Forecast for June 19-July 2

Retrograde Mercury, the culprit responsible for planning snafus during the past three weeks, will untangle communications after it turns direct on the 19th. The next day, an emotionally jarring Sun-Pluto opposition accompanies the summer solstice. Action-oriented Mars clashes with dreamy Neptune on the 21st, which derails motivation while heightening imagination. Uranus is retrograde from the 26th through Thanksgiving, which encourages some soul searching about changes you need to make in your life. Then passion accelerates when Mars dances with Pluto on the 30th. On July 1, Mars enters analytical, discriminating Virgo. And the new Moon in homey Cancer on the 2nd is accompanied by a romantically optimistic tryst between sensual Venus and jovial Jupiter.
