Kisses. This is a stellar week to be in the limelight and to put your cards on the table. We have more kisses, positive aspects, in the Skywatch than usual.
The Leo energy increases this morning as the Moon conjuncts Venus at 4:14 am PDT and then Mars at 5:29 am. Luna then turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning.
But keep your radar on today as an extremely welcome Mercury Jupiter trine lights up the heavens at 12:45 pm. This is a very good time to ask for what you want and to open the lines of communication to others.
Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.
As times change.
Caution lights are up on Saturday. The Moon opposes rigid Pluto at 9:10 am PDT and then turns Void of Course until she enters fiery Leo at 5:20 pm. V/C hours are not difficult, but are lousy times to make important decisions and purchases as our intuition and judgment are not sharp in this part of the lunar cycle. It’s a better time to chop wood, carry water, file papers and help others. The Leo Moon flies out into calm seas Saturday night—green lights are up for social plans and having some fun.
Sunday is the better day to handle important chores and shopping. Just stay organized as the Moon opposes practical Saturn at 3:32 pm and sails on to square jumpy Uranus at 8:10 pm. no big problems in this pair of markers and clear skies follow. Mercury finally gets into Summer sign Cancer Sunday afternoon at 1:35 pm and he’s three weeks late. Expect the heat to come on in the days ahead. As times change.
If your birthday is this week (July 11–17) You’ve got an exceptional Solar Return this year, Cancer (and Leslie, born on the 12th). What you do with it is still to be seen but you have a very rare Venus Mars conjunction in powerful Leo, a sign noted for being romantic, creative and always looking for fun and having a party. For single Cancers this is a strong signal that you could find the love of your life in the months ahead. And there’s another sterling kiss in this chart of your new year, Cancer, as Neptune sits in a trine to your Sun. This is a spiritual, compassionate and dream making aspect that can help you write your masterpiece or show you the path to find your bliss. And with lucky Jupiter in home sign Pisces, you have all the signs in your astrology to make this a year to remember. Happy Birthday, Leslie. As times change.
Plant a seed today. Green lights are up and we have a splendid New Moon in Cancer perfecting a 6:16 pm PDT early this evening.
Cancer is a water sign and that tells us to follow our feelings and gut reactions today in putting matters into motion. New Moons are always the best time to plant seeds and initiate new plans. And if a brilliant new idea hits you around 10:38 am, I won’t be surprised. Because that’s when the Moon sextiles innovative Uranus, the planet that rules the genius element in all of us.
Clear skies Friday evening suggest having a good meal and calling your mother—Cancer rules your tummy and family, especially mothers.
Get an early start. But be prepared for a surprise or two. Good vibes are in the air this morning as the Moon enters home sign Cancer at 6:51 am PST and then makes a trine to optimistic Jupiter at 10:09 am.
The surprises are likely to show up when Venus squares unpredictable Uranus at 12:25 pm. Having Venus involved means the surprise could be a good one, too: love at first sight. Clear skies follow for the rest of the day and night.

Green lights. The Moon in chatty Gemini flies out into calm space this morning. This is a good day to speak up and place your order.
A touch of fog shows up at 5:12 pm when Luna squares spacey Neptune. You are bound to get mail tonight as the Moon then meets Gemini ruler, Mercury, in the heavens at 9:20 pm. Cluck, cluck, cluck.
Luna then turns Void of Course until tomorrow morning.
Bad dreams? Mercury squares dream maker Neptune at 12:39 am PDT early this morning and the fog from this marker will linger into late morning hours. That means people and things may not be what they seem until later in the afternoon hours when the fog clears.
An unusual blend of energies shows up in the Skywatch Tuesday night. The main event is loving Venus sitting opposite to often grumpy and selfish Saturn, exact at 7:36 pm. Most helpful is the Moon making a friendly sextile to Venus at 6:41 pm followed by a trine to Saturn at 6:47 pm.
The best side of Saturn is being a responsible, practical force and let’s hope that face of this old man shows up tonight.
