Mercury Retrograde Territory - Weekly Horoscope: June 23 - June 29 Daily Horoscope

"Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."

— Robert Kennedy

We begin the week with optimism but also perhaps a bit too much idealism that has us setting up expectations that won't necessarily be satisfied. Mercury has entered retrograde territory — in the shadow phase of the next Mercury retrograde period from July 7th through August 1st. We may be prone to bombast and exaggeration after Mercury arrives in Leo on Wednesday. However, once Mercury returns to Cancer on July 19th, we may be inclined to regret some of this exaggeration. We are working through a gestation period this week, prior to next week's Cancer New Moon (12:16 PM PDT 10° Cancer). There is a Moon-Mars mutual reception [...]

Articles from Pluto's Child Astrology

  • Great Spiritual Teachers
  • A while back, a friend shared a great spiritual truth with me that has stayed with me and helped me get through some very difficult times: She shared, "I have found that the greatest spiritual teachers on my journey are the people that really piss me off."

    As Venus goes retrograde at the end of [...]

  • July 2015 Full Moon
  • I'm kind of the "Rip Van Winkle" of bloggers, I'm afraid. I can't seem to get in to a steady rhythm of posting new articles and, in the meantime, some writers are so prolific, I'm just amazed at how much they've written.

    One remarkable writer is Robert Wilkinson of Aquarius Papers who manages to write [...]

  • It’s May (2014)! Just ahead – the Jupiter/Saturn trine . . .
  • It's May! This is the month that Mars will finally turn direct (May 19th) and Jupiter will trine Saturn (that sounds good to me!). The first part of this year has been dominated by the challenging, crisis-driven Grand Cardinal Cross, involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. The Grand Cross has challenged existing structures and agreements [...]

  • Spiritual Context
  • In my last post, I tossed out the term "Spiritual Context" and as soon as it was posted, I thought, "I need to explain what I mean there by Spiritual Context." So, I sat down to write another post - a month ago, actually - but it's taken some time to formulate how to say [...]

  • An Astrologer is (Re)Born
  • As some may have noticed, I’ve been giving this website quite a bit more attention under this retrograde Mercury. The latest (re)visions are in preparation for my (re)turn to astrological consulting. It has taken me several years to make the decision to accept clients again and the process has felt very much like a continuation [...]
