Scorpio, although Mercury Retrograde ended a little while ago, it’s not until this week that we will have made it through its post-shadow period. This may have explained some delays in communication or technological advancements that you experienced recently. You’ll find that this week things start to ease up when it comes to your deepest connections, as well as your relationship with wealth. Monday through Wednesday, the Gemini Moon encourages you to work on projects that require much mental adaptability and open-mindedness. You’ll have the motivation to really dive into whatever you’ve been putting off, but you should give yourself frequent rest breaks and periods of play in between.

When the Moon shifts into Cancer on Thursday morning, the dark-of-the-moon period will be at its peak, and you may feel quite moody on Thursday and for most of the day Friday. But once the New Moon strikes at 9:16pm EST, you’ll understand why you had to experience such an emotional rollercoaster. You had to face aspects of your own shadows that were blocking your manifestation flow, including fears of moving on to something or someone better, or insecurities regarding what your current path is. It’s okay for you to want to be reborn into something new, Scorpio, even if that means leaving behind everything that’s familiar or everything you’ve been known for. You have what it takes to fully trust yourself in this rebirth, similarly to how a caterpillar surrenders to the metamorphosis, even if they have no idea what’s going to happen next. This Cancer New Moon is one of the most potent periods of manifestation for Scorpios, so take time to set New Moon Intentions between July 9th and July 19th. The next six months will blow you away!

The weekend is all about taking in the dreamy, sensitive, somewhat nostalgic and deeply therapeutic energy of the Cancer New Moon. On Sunday, Mercury, the Planet of Communication, joins the Sun in Cancer, after having been in Gemini for an extended stay. This helps us see the nuances and intricacies in our communication styles with ourselves, and with others. If we’ve been our toughest critic or if we couldn’t stop all the restlessness in our minds during Mercury in Gemini’s transit, we’ll start to sense our minds ease up, especially once the energy of the New Moon settles into our lives. A deep feeling of fulfillment and inner peace may emerge from this transit, but we’ll also feel a bit more drawn to intimate experiences and may feel lonely if we don’t immediately manifest that.

The key to feeling aligned with all these planetary shifts is to be honest about the totality of the emotions that come up for you under this week’s Cancer Moon, Cancer Sun, and Cancer Mercury transits. You don’t have to act like everything’s chill if actually you’d like a big hug, Scorpio. Let yourself be held and nurtured by others this week, and spend as much time in nature or near bodies of water as possible, because they’ll have a deeply cleansing, rejuvenating effect on you. Make this the week where you flow in the divine direction of your deepest dreams, with the awareness that the Universe wants to see you thrive, and will provide you with all the resources you need to make it possible.
